I am new and am excited to be part of this forum.
I started my "healthy eating and exercise" in August. I have done it before but I feel that this time it is here to stay. I am trying everything I can to be successful. I am writing everything down that goes into my mouth and am following a 1400 calorie food plan. I searched a couple of food pyramids and am trying to balance my carbs, fats, proteins...etc. The hardest part is that I haven't been able to reach 1400 calories. I am averaging 1200. I get to dinner and I can't seem to eat enough. I think that I am being so careful all day that I can't seem to get high enough for calories for dinner. I eat a lot of veggies and fruit. I am concerned because when I lose weight I know I will have to cut more calories and if I am already low how much lower can I go? I exercise at least 30 min. a day...sometimes 1hr. What do you think? Since Aug. 11th I have lost 15 lbs.
