    Devastation Ruined My Apatite

    I loved food and cooking...maybe I still love to cook, not sure, no one to cook for anymore.  My normal diet was never more than a 1200 cals a day on a good day because I was just so super healthy and I am really small but since my life was devastated and it gets worse by...

    Started On Accident

    Hi guys, I started out not counting calories and then I found a pocket sized book in the bookstore! So I started counting cals. I realized I had been eating under 1000 cals and some days way way under, and now I'm such a habit I feel bad eating over 1000 or even over 1500, I...

    My Problem

    Not Exactly the Healthiest...

    but it's what I do. I eat anywhere from 400 to 700 calories in a typical day. I just feel better when less is being consumed. I'm a dedicated calorie counter. I like planning what I'll eat for the whole day in the morning time. I feel secure knowing I have a...

    Food Journal

    I keep a food journal and track what I eat daily, and right now I'm taking in less than 1000 calories a day. I also run 2 to 3 miles a day and do 100 crunches. So far I have lost 25 lbs. Hopefully I can make my workouts a little more intense and lose 50 more before next summer.

    Advise Is Needed.

    I am eating only 720 cals a day or 3000kj and I didn’t realize it was unhealthy. I go on a 50 minute walk daily but I'm worried my metabolism will be shutting down. I am losing weight (1-1.2 kilo wkly) for 3 weeks and more initially. Should i see a doctor?

    Surgery Has Zapped My Appetite

    It started after a major foot reconstruction in August.  Afterwards, I was too anesthetized to eat more than a 200-300 hundred calories a day- coming mostly from chicken broth, crackers and juice.  After a week of this, I was able to get back to about 500 a day. ...

    If I eat over 1000 calories a day I will puke, or try to at least; my gag reflect is strong due to having such a rubbish immune system and always falling ill as a child. The less bloating the foods the better. I HATE eating one thing that is over 100 calories, but sometimes it...

    Counting Calories

    The first time I really started keeping track of caloric intake was when I was 13 years old.  It was an unhealthy habit then because I let it get the better of me for a few years.  I obsessed...like really obsessed.  I dropped about 30 pounds below the healthy range of my body...
