Smile Brand new diet thread!

WE needed to start a new diet thread.
So I will repost my last entry:

I have managed to lose a few pounds water weight probably but it is a start.
179....I hope that I never get in the 180's again!
made it one week AF.
Lunch:
chicken salad
Dinner:
split an order of bang bang shrimp and had one slice of bread with pesto olive oil, chicken, lilly's from bone fish grill. It was so delicious!
with spinach, basil and artichokes and goat cheese and lemon butter sauce. side of spinach and brocoli. I cut up half and boxed it up right away to bring home as it was a lot of food.
It will be lunch tomorrow.
I decided to quit the more expensive gym and rejoin the planet fitness one and save $55 a month.

Just posting to join the thread. I'm still not trying to lose weight because of some health issues. Hopefully I'll have some answers tomorrow.

This has been a 2100 calorie day. I will weigh myself tomorrow morning. I made another loaf of banana bread. It should be ready in about a half an hour from now. Oh yes, my Nutribullet works fine. It makes short work of frozen fruit.

I have been stuck between 156-160 pounds for weeks now. So frustrating! How do I get unstuck? I eat almost 1000 calories a day. Mostly healthy food.

I imagine you have heard this before, but you are eating far too little.

Yesterday made the 7th day in a row that I was within 15% of 1500 (recommended minimum for men). I had a long string of days where I averaged under 1000; I lost a half pound a day for about two and a half months. That wasn't healthy. It is going to try my patience, because I am now looking at March/April instead of January to reach goal. I have lost 41/58 so far.

Basically by eating so little, you are forcing your body's metabolism to slow down. So yes, it is causing you to be stuck. Try this calculator tool to determine what you would need to eat to maintain, lose weight, and lose weight very quickly:

https://www.freedieting.com/tools/ca...calculator.htm

I plugged in my info and I would need 2289 calories to maintain my weight, 1832 for weight loss and 1374 if I wanted to lose weight very quickly. I would honestly ignore the extreme fat loss number and shoot for the middle one.

Also don't forget to exercise if you are able. Gaining lean muscle naturally speeds up your metabolism and it has many positive effects for both body and mind. There are many free videos available online that I would be happy to share with you.
