I have been trying to lose belly fat so I cut my calories and I count how many I take it and log it on a app called lose it and for some reason I feel dizzy and occasionally a weird blackout type thing that last about 4 seconds. I have amnemia and other health issues. Any suggestions?

Yes u need to ask a doctor or even just a pharmacist, always if known medical conditions ask a doctor about any intention of working out, they will let you know your limits (if any) and diet tips as well as answer any other questions..ni recommend talking with someone before u attempt working out again

Counting calories is not as effective as people think everything you eat as calories calories is food energy. If you want to loose belly fat just stay away from rice, breads and pasta. Eat high fiber diet that is base on fruits and vegetable. I have the same issues you have when I dont eat right. I converted to being a vegan and belly fat is no longrr a problem. Also eating a lot of meat, and dairy products keep you bloated and constipated research vegan diets and start substituting unhealthy process foods with fresh vegetable and fruits and you...

Thanks both of y'all! And should I just eat how I was or keep counting the calories?? It's less stressful and I don't eat bad anyways. I eat like I should and I exercise alot! I just want the belly fat gone

counting calories isn't bad, as long as you're getting the amount of nutrients your body needs. If you eat too little it'll be counter active and probably make you gain weight instead. I suggest taking it easy :)

probably about right.

you might need to eat a little more if you exercise a lot. eating the right nutrients is most important. it seems that you may be missing some things in the new shit department. balance. and you probably need to drink more water. most issues arise from us not drinking enough water. Force water sometimes. if you are working out regularly 8 -8 ounce glasses a day should help solve the problem.

you can't just starve yourself to lose weight. you have to eat the right stuff. you have to eat enough and be active. if you get the right nutrients count calories is done this way:
-determine how many calories you have to eat a break even. that is not to gain or not to lose weight. This is done for you in MFP.
- then eat the the right foods, but calories just below that amount to create a deficit. eating fewer calories than you actually burn. I cannot stress enough that you balance your nutrients and stay away from junk for the most part.
- don't eat a whole lot less. eating less than 1200 ( not really I magic number. some need more and some need less) calories for most people will cause them to go into starvation mode. your energy is zapped and you start getting fat without eating much.

if you found yourself in starvation mode, get professional help. they can help you calculate the calories you need to kick start and get out of it.

recovering starvation mode is scary because you have to actually gain weight first. that's because you have to kick start your metabolism and your body has to adjust. I mean you eat at a rate that would keep you at a deficit normally and you would lose weight. but for a time you will gain weight. 4 weeks of rapid weight gain scares most people to death but sometimes it's required in order to get your system back on track. mamy people give up and stay in the vicious circle.
