Are you counting calories?

Well that’s a good idea! That honestly didn’t cross my mind, I was just gonna limit my intake

If you have a smartphone you can download a calorie counting app. There’s 100s of them so you should hopefully find one that suits you.

A 150 calories protein bar for breakfast. Then 5 calories/140g noodles with BBQ chicken breast or pork filet, soy or Thai sauce with hot sauce. This is either for dinner or supper. Then I eat whatever my mother makes. I also just started using Splenda 0 calories sweetener instead of sugar in coffees and teas. At night I don’t eat after 5-6pm, sometimes cucumber, lettuce, cauliflower, blackberries, raspberries.

I’m following the recommendations on the LifeSum app. Weight up a few pounds today, I’m not thrilled. Going for walkies shortly and trying to dial it back. Probably switching back to MyFitnessPal. Lunch will be a salad and that’s it. Supper will be roasted cauliflower and pepper soup with one slice of toast and more salad. Less than 1500 calories per day.

Sometimes I do have a small piece of chocolate but not daily. I think this helps me stick to my diet so its not an extreme unsustainable diet. I have been skipping breakfast for 3 months. Its working. I lost 23lb but its slow now. I need to exercise but can’t due to negative symptoms. Only way I can be healthy is my diet. I don’t mind being overweight unless I get high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

I fit unhealthy foods like pizza or hot dogs into my calories once a week. I agree it helps me to stick with the diet

Good you do that. Hope it helps you feel better.

I broke the self-promise that i shouldnt do too rigorous diets and started a (ridicuously strict) few foods diet. It is an elimination diet that helps ADD. I secretly hope it also helps the ptsd and depression and pms and all the other stuff a bit.

Glad your diet is going well. I haven’t done any cardio all week, and today I had a whole pack of oreos double cream, and 4 oreo icecream sandwiches. I still haven’t bought the zero calorie noodles yet either.

I’m certain calories from food is more important than exercise when it comes to weight loss.

I do Intermittent fasting. I try not to eat after 6 or 7. and sometimes I do long fasts… 3 days or so.

On Monday I’m going to start a juice fast… green juices, etc… more greens than fruits.
