Did you see the part about me weighing over 300 pounds? Heavy people burn lots of calories because we are larger. I'm 5'10 and early 30s, if it matters, and I have lots of muscle in my legs. I wear a device that tells my calorie burn. Sunday, I wasn't feeling very good and slept most of the day, and laid around watching TV the rest of the day. I burned 2800 calories, which is the lowest I've ever seen for me.
Further data: in the past, when I've followed a strict 1800 calorie no sugar diet, I lose over a pound every two days without exercising, or 60 pounds in 100 days. I was about 30 pounds less the last time I started such a diet. So, at my current weight. I do not think under 2000 calories per day is advisable.View Thread
I've been reading The Hunger Fix by Pam Peeke with great interest, as I have no doubt that I am a food addict. I weigh 316.8 pounds. However, I was saddened to find that the food plans are "one size fits all." How will these food plans work for BOTH a sedentary person half my size, and me, an active morbidly obese person who easily burns 4000 calories a day (and more if I deliberately exercise)? I know for certain that I can't go below 2000 calories without losing weight WAY too fast (like 5 pounds a week).
I want to follow The Hunger Fix plan, but I don't want to restrict my calories so much that I set myself up to fail.View Thread
