I know it's not healthy but it's working

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Well, I decided to go extreme and cut my calories to 500 a day or less. I know this is not healthy but I needed a good jumpstart to losing my weight this time. I only plan to do this for a few days. I have lost 6 lbs in 2 days which is amazing - that just tells you that I really needed to do something.

I am doing this more for discipline than anything. Once I get my body and mind to work with better portion control, and not be hungry for sweets all the time, I should be able to go back to a normal calorie count.

    Thanks everyone for your comments and concern. It's not forever, just enough to let my body know I mean business and that it's not going to be fed everytime there is a little bit of hunger. I am getting plenty of food (3 meals and 3 snacks) everyday just not eating as much as before or as bad.

    It isn't healthy, but maybe if you address it as a short term fast, you will find it good just to get your body detoxed and ready to eat better. Journal on it, that can't hurt either!
    Take care, Anne

    That is kind of the same principle of calorie cycling. Usually it is 500, 1,000, stacked for a few days, and then 1,500 calories and back down again. It can help to confuse your body into burning fat.

    That is a little excessive but if you think this is right for you, it's your decision. Good luck.
