Day 28: Calories Shmalories

Thursday, January 28, 2021

Lately I've been eating a lot. I mean compared to what I used to try to stick to. I am not gaining weight. I am able to work out with more energy. I think I'm sleeping better.

Perhaps for a long time I've tried to be too restrictive in my dieting when I'm trying to be fit. I am really trying to focus on mindful eating now and on building strength and stamina. I have to say that I am not unhappy with the results so far. Hm.

I'm not eating to excess, and I'm not eating junk food. I am eating some processed foods - chocolate, some Saltines. I'm trying to make sure I get my veggies and fruit.

Feeling a little mystified today as to why I'm not packing on the pounds. I'm sure I'll try to be more strict with myself as I get more accustomed to my workouts and feel less tired all the time. But maybe I can allow myself to eat more than 1200-1400 calories a day.

    Just wanted to say I've always had to eat very little (like your 12-1400 cal) to lose weight. This time I'm working with a nutritionist (for autoimmune issues) BUT she told me that (for me) my absolute bottom limit is 1800 calories, so I have been eating 1800-2000/day and as long as I stick mainly to whole foods and not super processed foods, my weight is definitely dropping ... plus I have so many of my symptoms lessening and I'm not as exhausted all the time. The basic way she explained it ... your body needs enough fuel for it to heal itself and if you go less than that all it really does is screw with metabolism? Hope that helps some!

    eating more isn't always a bad thing.
