Hey skimblers! It's been awhile.. I have a Q
If you think, thyt you can't give 100% while working out, eat more carbs. Not to much than necessary but enough to get power to train. And if you feel hungry between meals eat some fruits. I eat bananas, strawberrys, blueberrys or apples. :-)
I think that it all looks really good, mainly because you are getting the nutrition you need for a good workout.
The site my doctor prefers can be found if you search on your browser for : cdc healthyweight :.
It's the U.S. government site and they keep it updated with the latest research.
No way 500 calories is enough for you! Ear up girl
No its not enough and yes you have an eating disorder if you believe eating like that is healthy. It's like putting half a tank of gas in your car and think you can drive as far as with a full tank since you provided it with fuel.
Women should never eat less than 1200 calories a day, period.
You are eating healthy and I'd recommend you continue to do so.....but I'd significantly increase your intake. Think of calories as fuel for your body. If you don't eat enough it starts taking fuel from reserves in the body. Typically people will burn over 1000 cals, just for the body to stay alive. If your intake is that low your body will start breaking down your muscle mass to get the energy it needs. So I would highly encourage a higher calorie intake to prevent the body from shutting and breaking down.
I highly suggest adding a carb reload day to keep your metabolism up to par. Try eating more lean meats!!(especially chicken) grilling it makes it taste so much better than any other method imo
