Who has been able to stick to a 1600 calories or less a day? Who weigh more than 200lbs. I mean I was doing really good eating 1800 calories a day but then I reduced it to 1600 calories last thursday and this is still the day I havent kept it. Im always so hungry. I just want to eat and eat. Anybody else with the same problem? And what did you end up doing?
I currently do 1600 a day and weigh 193lbs. I've been losing about 1 to 1 and a half pounds per week. But I also eat more on workout days. For example, if I burn 200 calories doing cardio then I'll aim for 1800 calories minus the 200 burned and you're still at 1600. Otherwise you'll be starving and your body will start to store fat.
Also foods high in protein and fiber will keep you feeling full longer. Hope this helps
Well you know guys, you were right. I started eating cleaner without the sweet tea, cookies, crackers, butter, mayo, or sugar. I started eating more fiber and I am fuller. Sometimes I cant finish my whole meal. Its awesome. And im still under 1600 calories for the day. Thank you. I appreciate it.
I mean, I weigh 130lb. I'd say it depends on where you started. If you started your weight loss journey eating 4k a day, then even eating 1800 should cause weight loss. In the end, you're putting a lot less into your body then before. I'm just wary about people cutting a drastic amount of calories since it can back fire. theres a good chance your body will be like "hold up! What are you doing?! I think she's trying to starve me!" Then of course metabolism slows way down. Anyway, if 1600 is hard to stick to (which it is), then I'd try 1800 of good clean calories. have you tried Plyometrics or HIIT exercise yet? Definitely good for weightloss.
Ive been noticing that when I stick to my 1600 calories a day I lose about a lb a day. But as soon as I eat more than that I gain it right back. But it seems that 1400 to 1600 calories a day must be the key for me losing weight. Thank you guys. Youve been a lot of help. Ive been trying to figure out what can work for me and if I wasnt using this app with my other apps and you guys I couldnt have figured it out without you guys. Im new at this whole diet thing and there are so many diets out there that it can be overwhelming. Thanks to you guys, you have made ut easier for me. I appreciate it.
