ok, so this is a thread i posted and im just taking this to everyone. if you can help me with some suggestions i would greatly appreciate this. while to some it may sound stupid to have the problem of not being able to eat enough, i struggle with it everyday. i workout hard and love my body getting stronger. its the eating part thats got me befuddled. so heres the thread,plz feel free to chime in and help out.
i know i have to eat more.....and calorie cycling might be something i try. i mean i do it with my exersize routines, some days working hard others a liter workout.
i know that if you essentially starve yourself then your body will hang on to every calorie you put in your mouth.....what is the minimal amount of calories i can consume and still lose weight? i know thats based on each persons wt/activity level and so on. i dont know. i kinda know the answer but im just struggling with for so long restricting my calories to now suddenly im supposed to be eating roughly 2000 calories/day. i cant wrap my head around it. today i tried to incorporate more calories, my friend suggested more protein rich foods based on my level and intensity of workouts....so i had more..still only got 1100 calories into me and i worked out.
is anyone else struggling with not being able to eat enough calories and having it halt your wieghtloss and what did you do to get past this...when youve been fat and unfit for ....ever....then told you have to eat more...its a mind bender. and its not a matter of just eat more, thats about as thoughtless as telling an overweight person...just eat less.....im really really struggling with this. i love how strong my body is. man i can workout long andhard...but i need to figure out my calorie consumption battle...ive decided not to go on the scales for a bit..ill keep tabs on my measurements and how my clothes are fitting....
all i ask is that you not judge me, or anyone thats struggling with this....its really a battle to wanna get healthy and eat healthy when a lifetime of bad habits have taken thier tol
