QUITTING SMOKING IS SIMPLE AND STRAIGHT FORWARD compared to dieting. Both take determination and positive thinking but dieting is always ongoing whereas quitting smoking is simply just done.
I caution dieters to not go below the 1200 calories as that is our basic metabolic rate for most of us. I prided myself for putting nutrition and exercise first but was appalled at how recklessly some ate. Dieted and ate JUNK when the calories eaten were most important. I decided in January to demonstrate a good diet . I showed my diet calendar of 1200 calorie of nutritious eating. I also decided,,REGRETFULLY TO do double the exercise.
The stress was too much for my body, a diffence of sometimes 1000 calories.....which slowed my metabolism. Counter productive as I only lost 2.2 lbs instead of 7. How disappointing is that?
I guess we all learn through mistake, and avoid mistakes by things learned.
I hope any dieters will take heed and learn to ease their bodies into the situation. My metaboliam slowed down to save me. It thought it was starving. Now I doing reverse and adding a little more calories to assure my body it is not starving, and to not just store extra as fat, That is why so many only gain the pounds back.
Chia seeds also sent my blood pressure plummeting one night I had forgotten that the interaction with blood pressure meds was not good, as I was not on meds at that earlier date.
I just wanted to warn other dieters on my weight loss site and especially my freinds here.
