S/C/G: 223/170/135

Height: 5'4 3/4"

Default Am I eating enough?

I am 223/174/135 at 5'4" and I try to eat 1400 calories a day. My BMR is 1600 and my daily exercise is intense and my heart rate monitor says I burt 800-1000 calories a day. I am absolutely STUCK at 174. I tried up-ing my protein and I eat a high fiber diet here's a sample of my day:

Lowfat yogurt- 80 cal
Oatmeal 120 cal
Almonds 100 cal

Snack Banana approx 80 cal

Lunch- Salad with chx 300 cal
2 random 100 cal packs

Dinner- Healthy choice meal or leftover nutrisystem meal 220 cal
vege (broccoli)- 60 cal
100 cal pack

Late snack- glass of wine (rarely) or 100 cals of almonds

First off, I'd stop eating the 100 cal packs and replace them with fruits or veggies, or other healthy snacks. Second, if you're burning so many calories, your body needs more. I think 1600 - 1800 (or even more) for intense workouts every day would do you good. I'd try that and see what happens. If nothing, I'd increase your calorie intake for a few weeks, and see what happens. And why not get rid of the healthy choice meals? Eat 8oz of chicken with a baked potato/brown rice and some veggies. Or the chicken and pasta. It will be a lot cheaper in the long run, too.

It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle choice!

I agree. You're not eating enough to support your activity level. BMR is the absolute minimum your body burns to stay alive--it doesn't count breathing, resting, sitting. And it also doesn't count any exercise or other activities you do in a day.
