i am a calorie counter - i am for 1200 calories/day but i'm ok with up to 1500/day.
im also trying to listen to my body more - stop eating when i start feeling satisfied, dont eat unless i am sure i am actually feeling hunger (not boredom, not being emotional...).
but i'm noticing that if i eat like that, my calories fall *way* below where i want them to. - even a cup of easy mac - i only ate half of it before i felt full!
but jeeze! my calories when i "listen" to my body average at 700-900/day.
thats not healthy!
i added a daily multivitamin, and i'm trying to lean towards more protein in my diet, but seriously?
when do you not listen to your body and force feed and when it is ok to?
i KNOW i'm eating way less than i "should", but my body feels satisfied with that.
eating like this i have been losing on average 1.7 lbs/day which also too fast of a weight loss.
