HOW DOES ONE DEAL WITH SUCH ISSUES???
Thursday, September 17, 2015
As you know I love my new fiber challenge. When I am done with the fiber challenge I plan to take on another healthy challenge. I do have issues with some of the daily tasks. Today we are supposed to channel into our true hunger, or don't eat until we are truly hungry.
I am not sure the creator of this challenge know what that really means for some of us. Have you ever been truly hungry? I have always been a big girl but I have worked 3 jobs at one time to pay my bills and still did not have food to eat. I know what it feels like to truly be hungry. I just do not think I want to intentionally allow myself to get to that point. Maybe that is one of the reasons I eat the way I do. I know what it really feels like to be hungry and I don't want to have to know that feeling again. Maybe I am taking it a bit to the extreme but it's something to think about. Usually when it is time to eat I will eat something. Game time, I will eat something. I do not allow my blood sugar to get below 67, because I hate being shaky, and dizzy and at times not being able to get up enough strength to go fix something to eat. That is the reason I keep crackers and snack cups of apple sauce and fruit in my room, not because I am greedy or lazy. So how do you handle an issue like this? If I wait until I am truly hungry I would have a love sugar episode. I eat what I need to keep going and that's what I thought the goal of nutrition was, and I still have trouble meeting my calorie goal of 1900-2400 per day. Today's total was 990. If I didn't eat by time, I would not be eating during the day and eating all night. What am supposed to do? I was told not getting enough calorie is keeping me from losing weight. Isn't working out and cutting back on calories, what is supposed to cause you to lose weight? I just don't understand this diet/ life style change thing. What can I do to fix this so that I can eat just enough for me, work out and still lose weight? AGAIN, I NEED HELP!
