I am doing dukan diet which is technically a high protein, low fat, low carb diet. However, because I have portion control issues and binge issues, and emotion eating issues instead of the unlimited protein I am trying to dicipline myself to stay within 1200-1500 calories a day, in order to set the mindset for post diet life.
Ive been steadily losing weight, but for the past 2 days i have gained a total of 300 calories but when I looked at my calory intake, both days were under 1000 calories. So I am thinking maybe I am gaining because my calories were low. It wasnt intentionally low just that I went out to dinner at friends' both nights and there were very few things I could eat from the menu and I didnt want to take my own food.
Has anyone had this experience? I am going to raise my calorie intake higher today and see if thats caused it. But its so depressing and in my head I know that human body fluctuates and I shouldnt focus too much on weight but size but its so motivating when numbers go down and so demotivating when they go up
What are your views on this? Has anyone had a similar experience and how did you deal with it?
