I have been doing well on an 1800 calorie diet and I am definitely hungry in the morning and before lunch but the hunger is like an 8 or 9 for about 1 1/2 hrs before the meal. I don't know if it is because I am taller (therefore higher metabolism) and I workout for a while each day (2 hrs) or if I just have a low tolerance for hunger. Just wondering how you ladies do it.

Hi Sunshine! About an hour before lunch, I start to get hungry, but not terribly so. I'm probably at about a 4. An hour before dinner I'm probably about a 6. I do 1500 cals a day, give or take. I don't work out 2 hours a day (wow!!!) but I do about 70 minutes 4 or 5 times a week.

When my diet is too carb-heavy, I am STARVING almost always, even when I am up to 1900-2000 calories. Getting the bulk of my calories from protein and some good fat really goes a long way toward keeping hunger away.

There is no doubt in my mind that your fabulous workout routine makes you super hungry though. Your body needs that fuel!

Thanks ladies! And welcome ladynredd!

Sunshine--I dont workout that much, so 1500-1700 calories doesnt leave me hungry. If youre working out 2hrs a day then im not surprised that you were hungry eating lower calories! If youre doing well at 1800, stay at that until it stops working for you! I think there is something to be said about what kind of foods youre eating...i.e. try higher volume foods, like foods that you can eat alot of for not that many calories

Today:

B: 1 boiled egg, 1 slice wheat bread
S: Light yogurt
L: Bean salad, 1/2 grapefruit
S: 1c canteloupe
D: 5oz chicken breast, salsa, 1/4c 2% cheddar, 2tbsp sour cream, 1c rice
S: 1 slice wheat bread w/ 1 laughing cow and tomato slices, 1 serving oatmeal

Total
Calories: 1,624
Fat: 49.0
Carbs: 200.1
Protein:98.3
Fiber: 24.8

I need bigger snacks at night on weekends when Im up later :-)

I started eating light yogurts this week. I forgot they have aspartame in them, and i usually stay away from artificial sweetners. I noticed that im hungrier and also craving sweets more since eating them! Maybe it's in my head! Good luck with the weekend everyone! I know I have at least one bbq and plans to eat out!

Hey guys. I've been on this forum for about a month now. I started my weight loss challenge with intermittent fasting. It was a easy diet for me to follow but my body didn't respond too well. I was tired on the days I didn't eat and this diet wasn't flexible with social occasions. I'm a bit discouraged because it's been a few weeks since I've lost weight. I decided to go back counting calories because that's worked for me in the past.
I'm aiming for 1200 calories a day. Let's keep each other accountable and lose the weight : )

I love the idea of IF, but I had a similar experience in that I just couldn't make it work with my social life.


This is my first post to this thread. I've been back on the wagon for a little over a month now. I have about 40 lbs. to lose. I decided to check various calorie calculators online to see what my calorie range would be when I hit maintenance for my goal weight. I thought it would be smart to stay at that range since that's the range I'll have to eat when I hit maintenance. According to various calculators, my maintenance calories when I hit 140 lb. will be 1500 - 1750. So, I figured I'd aim for about 1400 per day, and I usually cycle my calories because that fits best with my social activities.

So, yesterday, I ate about 2200 calories (I'm probably overestimating, but I went out to a fine dining restaurant that isn't a chain, so I'm just guessing as best I can). So, today, I stayed at 1000. I'll try to do the same tomorrow. My menu today:


B - About four bites of oatmeal w/ a bit of brown sugar & a dash of milk (I ate out for breakfast, and the oatmeal wasn't that great---hence the few bites).

L - Salad (mixed greens, tomatoes, onions), goat cheese, Marie's creamy Italian dressing, 1/2 cup Trader Joe's cumin & spice chick peas

Snack - small banana (about half the size of a regular banana)

D - Salad (mixed greens, tomatoes, onions), goat cheese, Marie's creamy Italian dressing, about 4 oz. broiled shrimp., one dinner roll
