Can't. Stop. Eating.

So I've been on a diet now for the past 3 months.. I've lost 40 lbs. I really let myself go at the beginning of this year and I was nearly 200 lbs in May. I immediately went on a diet and I've lost exactly 40 lbs now on a 1,200 calorie diet. But the past week I've been stuck at 148 lbs. Because I cannot stop eating. I am starving all the time for high sugar and carbohydrates.

What do I do? I want to get to 125-130 lbs.

Re: Can't. Stop. Eating.

I'm impressed that you've lost so much weight in the past 3 months. I've been trying to lose weigh for the past month and only averaged 3.5 pounds. They always say that the last bit is the hardest to lose. What kind of exercise are you doing?

I have CDO. It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, except in alphabetical order like it should be.

Re: Can't. Stop. Eating.

Well I can't do exercise right now because I am ill with some personal issues. But I do yoga, and I do walk a bit. So yeah, I guess I do do some exercise. I have to wait until my body is strong enough again to exercise like I use to, which should be soon.

What diet are you on? What are you doing to lose weight? 1,200 calorie diet is the way to go. It's the lowest you can go without being unhealthy and malnourished.

Re: Can't. Stop. Eating.

You seem fixated on dieting. Why not toss some exercise in the mix? Commit yourself to a nice daily run and you'll be just fine Oh and throw out your weight scale.

I have health disorders and my doctor advised me not to exercise until my body is strong enough. Or else I would.

I eat 1 cup of brown rice, fruit, vegetables, lean chicken, and water spread throughout the day.

Re: Can't. Stop. Eating.

Are you not supposed to exercise at all? Just walking is a great way to burn fat. I've never been overweight and I thought I was at a relatively stable weight, but as soon as I went to college and started walking everywhere, I lost 15 pounds without changing my diet.

I mean, if you're hungry all the time, that's your body's way of saying, "help me, I'm being undernourished."

Bitttchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh You Better Pay It Honey! The Devil Is A Liar!!!!! Bitches Get Interviews And Shit? Where They Do That At Honey? Girls Are Late Honey!!!! The Queen Needs To Get Into It Honey Cause The Girls Is Late Out Here! Yes Honey Im Throwing Epic Shade!

Management!

Re: Can't. Stop. Eating.

Well, if you don't want to be hungry all the time try altering what you're eating. Also whenever you eat rice, pasta or noodles drink a lot of water with them and that will bloat you up. You won't need to eat for a while then.

In fact if you're eating a lot of starchy/carbohydrates based foods then drink water whenever you're eating that will help you get full quicker.

Re: Can't. Stop. Eating.

Hmm... If you haven't eaten the foods that you have been craving yet, I would recommend just having a little bit. Don't over indulge but you can not completely ignore what you are craving. Also, sometimes when you are on a diet for so long your body starts to plateau at its current weight. You may need to eat something that it a little different to spike your metabolism again. I have followed plans like weight watchers for years and that usually helps me get over the weight plateau.

Ever ran a background check on your neighbor?

Great news, after a week at 148.4 lbs, I've dropped down to 146.0 lbs overnight.

Re: Can't. Stop. Eating.

I'm trying to incorporate walking more in my dieting regime (the other aspects just being getting rid of fast food and soda, basically). What's a good distance to walk a day? Does it matter?

I'm glad for you, Kazoo. I want to get to just about where you are now.

You burn 100 calories per mile by walking. A pound of fat equals 3500 calories.

So if you were walking 3 miles a day, and weighing your calories.. I would go with 1,500 calories a day. You will burn off 300 which will equal to 1,200, which is the best way to go if you want to lose weight! Are you male or female? How much do you weigh? (if you're comfortable telling)

Here's how you measure..

1,100 calories - 110 lbs
1,200 calories - 120 lbs
1,300 calories - 130 lbs
1,400 calories - 140 lbs
1,500 calories - 150 lbs

So when you are eating that many calories, that is the weight you will eventually reach if you STRICTLY stick to it.

And thanks so much!
