I NEED HELP WITH FOOD
Tuesday, March 08, 2011
I'm figuring out that when I work out really hard (specifically my abs) I don't want to eat as much food... I'd rather drink water. I know that my body needs fuel to operate correctly, but whenever I eat healthy (which I've been good about lately) IT'S NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE to eat the correct number of calories. I've been STUFFING myself full of fruits, liquids, salads, etc. and on those SUPER HEALTHY days, I feel like I don't have time to do anything but eat (just to get my calories in).
It's SUCH a catch 22. You're supposed to eat healthy to lose weight, but you're also supposed to eat a certain number of calories to keep the body primed and ready to work. The problem is that healthy food has less calories which means you MUST eat more to get the right number of calories in daily, and it's becoming a bit tedious for me.... especially since my appetite diminishes the harder I work out. Does anyone know what I can do to get all of my calories in without making myself feel sick? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
