I’m on a medically supervised diet which consists of about 800 calories a day, is low fat and low carb. I had 2 breadsticks just now. I’ve been on the diet for 5 weeks and I’ve lost 16 pounds. But today I was absolutely famished and wanted something to eat that was satisfying, I messed up but I finally feel full.
Good for you. A little cheat is okay, as long as you get back on the diet
It’s okay. Everyone has an off day. The trick is to keep at it. I recently started a 1200 calorie diet. Haven’t noticeably lost weight yet. I’m sure in a couple weeks I’ll see some progress.
Just 800 calories!? This is dangerous isn’t it?
You should be consuming more calories than this.
800 calories is starvation. You will actually lose weight faster at 1100 calories, since your body will not slow its metabolism to conserve energy at that point.
That’s true. If you starve yourself, you will not lose as much weight as you would think. Your body will store all your calories as a defense mechanism
The fact that you’re only eating 800 calories is concerning. How long is this supposed to go on for ?!
800 calories is like ED level of restriction >_>
I had an off day today too. I just ate a third of a small jar of Jif peanut butter on celery sticks. Yummm!!! But, so high in calories. What was I thinking? I just won’t eat dinner. That was enough I think.
I read it’s ok to have cheat days from time to time so your body doesn’t go full starvation mode.
A dr approved this diet after taking my blood, blood pressure and ekg
@everhopeful it’s for 32 weeks or when I hit my goal if it’s sooner than 32 weeks
Geez. Ok I hope it goes well.
Thanks! I’ve lost 16 pounds in 5 weeks. They check my blood pressure and diet etc 3x /week. I tried a 1200 calorie diet and it didn’t work.
Congratulations on the weight loss. That’s a big achievement.
So long as they’re monitoring your health while it’s happening it sounds safer.
Congratulations @ZmaGal, that’s awesome.
As long as your being monitored medically.
Congrats, I diet all the time, had to start eating more though was getting dizzy, hope it goes well for you
cheat day here or there is fine. Just get back to it and no big deal. Don’t dwell on 1 day, think of all the successful day you’ve had so far and don’t beat yourself up about it.
@Wave they see me 3x/week so it’s ok.
@Mountainman I don’t feel dizzy. But I do feel a little tired. Today I felt famished. If I keep feeling that way i’ll tell them I need more food but until today I did fine
