Thanks, ladies. I don't know what it is. It's very unlikely I'm eating too little
, but I do exercise quite a bit. Part of the problem, I think, is that when I do a lot of exercise, I get very hungry, and so I eat. It's literal hunger, not emotional hunger or thirst. I know that for sure. I have to be *really* careful to eat particular things that fill me to combat this, and I don't always succeed in battling the hunger. For example, I know that steel-cut oatmeal works, and brown rice and beans work to fill me. Usually I succeed in keeping my calorie count with those even if I get hungry. But on those days when I don't, LOOK OUT. 1800 calories has worked before, and with the riding/running I do, I really cannot go below that or I don't have energy for the longer rides/runs. That is what I am trying to keep to, and I start dropping when I do that, but then I get HUNGRY.
