Trying to understand

RE: Trying to understand
Ok so have ate 1800 calories for a week now. (Was easy to stay at 1800 then reduce and increase gradually)
It's so hard eating half as many calories again. But I'm getting there. Orange juice, olive oil etc are my boosting calories.

So I weighed today and have only put 1lb on. Which is pretty amazing to see when I've been trying hard to lose weight before and now after eating a whole 4200 extra that's all it does to me. Is that proof that my body needed more food? As its still burning most of it off??

RE: Trying to understand
Sounds like you are doing great! Just keep adding on 100 calories each week, and you will be up to your TDEE (2,130) before you know it, and by taking it nice and slow you should be able to keep those gains to a minimum, as you are giving your body time to adapt to the increased intake

Good job, Kirstio! Yes, your body definitely needs that food. It will get easier to eat at the higher calorie level, and at some point you'll wonder how you ever survived on less!
