After talking with my dietitian friend and getting some tips, I've decided to experiment with my calories. I don't want to specify a range because I don't want someone to eat 'what I'm eating' because that's what I'm doing. I'm 4'10" and I weigh 114lbs - my calories will not be the same for someone who is taller.
But my plan is to eat lower calorie, healthy choices, and very little processed foods. But I'm going to listen to my body. If I'm too tired to get through my workouts then I will up my calories. And I know that I have to choose my food wisely. I can't eat junk food (even though I might stay within range) and be healthy or able to function.
So I'm experimenting this week and curious to see what happens. Will I be able to stick to the plan without binging on junk food or mindless eating? Will I lose weight with the lower calorie range with healthy food choices? Or do I really need to eat more in general?
Since I didn't have a loss this week, I really hope to have a decent weight loss this upcoming week.
