Day 16 – Weight Control – Finding a new intake level

189.2 lbs and 26% BF.

Looking back, with the workouts running 500 calories or more a day and consumption to date at around 1000 calories a day I was losing an average of a pound or two a day.

Today was a difficult day and for the first time I can honestly say I felt the hunger. Rather than allow myself small 100 or so extra calories over the base 1000, I decided to really feast and allow myself a 1500 calorie day. indicates an active person like me can lose weight while eating 2600 calories a day, but has to make sure it’s less than 460 calories of junk, sugar or alcohol.

I’m not ready to make that much of an increase in calorie intake.

I’ve been staying up late too much and lacked the energy to work out today. I’ve also decided to slow down my blogging on this subject. I’ll do summaries every so often from now on.

And I have difficulties ahead. I’ll be sailing on Fashas Dream for three days. I won’t have my laptop to accurately mark things down. I won’t have access to for guidance. I’ll have to write things down and figure out the calories later.
