After my first week I am thinking to alter my calories as i am still gaining weight. I went with the amount the nhs choices bmi calculator suggested which was a range starting at low end of range for my stats which was 1652 calories I have been trying to eat 1600. Which feels like a lot, i think one of my problems is not eating regularly or enough of the right foods. i am not the biggest fan of animal protein i eat it but in very
small portions. I don't necessarily supplement that with leafy greens or alternatives. i have been experiencing food allergies i'm being tested for coaliac disease but because the testing requires it I need to eat two portions of wheat a day which makes me feel unwell and i think it has contributed to weight gain as i had limited my wheat intake. I'm also on hormones which fortunately didn't affect my weight until the new year I didn't gain weight over Christmas but it's piled on in January. i think i have gained 11lbs in January despite exercising more and tracking calories -I feel a bit helpless that it will continually go on. I want to do this but when will I see a deficit not a gain?
