Just a quick question. I am currently on the 1500 calorie diet and the past two weeks I've really noticed that my calorie intake has lowered into the 1000-1200 range. I feel like am I am forever eating and i have tons of energy so keep doing extra workouts (sunny afternoon in Seattle?! must go attempt to run in it!) and i am concerned that between the extra workouts and less calories that I am going to force my body into starvation mode. I hate to eat when i'm not hungry (isnt that what i'm supposed to be training my body not to do?) but i'm struggling to get a decent amount of calories in. Any advice would be helpful, i did try to call to jc support and then asked my jcc but they gave conflicting advice so not sure what to do. Below is an average day of meals, if you can spot something that i am missing or might help make up the difference please let me know! Thanks

It's likely you'll get more conflicting replies here, but that's just my two cents! You're doing really great so far!

I have been losing weight fairly steadily, although I have seem to stalled in the upper 180's the past two weeks, a lot of fluctuations up and down seem to be happening (it just happens to be that I've been down on weigh in days). I started off on the 1500 calorie diet and my jcc has not made any mention or plan to change it, I just happen to be doing extra workouts since work has been slower and I find I'm restless in the evenings. Thanks for the advice, I guess at this point I will not worry to much about the lower calories, just eat healthy over all and get a little extra protien if I've worked out hard and am hungry afterwards

I'm assuming since you're on a higher than normal calorie level that you're doing LOTS of exercise and have a sizeable amount to lose. They have a computer program that they use so ask your JCC to explain EXACLTLY what you're supposed to be eating to make up for the extra calories (free veggies don't count). And then follow the program.Most of us were/are on the 1,200 calorie plan UNLESS there is a great amount of exercise and necessity for weight loss so SPEAK UP and if you're not getting the response you need, talk to the Center's manager and/or change your JCC.
We;re here and we want you to succeed.
