Several folks have commented or emailed about the fact that I plan to eat less than 1000 calories per day for the next 30 days. Many are concerned that I’m eating too little. Basically, I have weighed the possible effects (burning muscle, not fat, fatigue, etc.) verses the possible rewards (better sleep, lower weight, no sluggishness.) – and I’ve decided that I have to be a little “crazy” for a month or so. This is just how I am – in for a penny, in for a pound, so to speak. If I eat much more than I’m eating now – I lose the “edginess” of a slight hunger – and then I REALLY over eat. Frankly, losing weight is only one of my goals. My primary goal is to “shrink” my stomach and “master” my overeating.
Caloric intake as of 11:15 AM
Obviously, I would never suggest that anyone else “do what I’m doing”. I just know myself. I have to get really, really psyched about something – and then I can really get some stuff done.
One quick note: In my opinion, 1000 “healthy calories” – from fruits, vegetables, lean meat – HAVE to be healthier than 2000 “bad calories” – from cookies, chips, soda.
