Things seem to be going well for me but this week I have felt a bit confused with it all I overate on Sunday and thought I would make up for it yesterday by having less than 1000 calories but I was feeling tired most of the day. I put it down to lack of proteins so I started to look into the LCHF way of eating and maybe i should give that a try? This morning I started the day with bran and a banana and then read that bran is not good for you? (perhaps I should stop reading?) I have felt hungry all day and managed to finish up several leftovers in the fridge, nothing too big around 250 calories and healthy stuff too but still felt hungry and then managed to eat treacle sponge pudding and cream too! My recommended calories are 1900 a day and I have been on around 1400-1500 and even today I managed to keep below 1500, including the pudding.
So, am I not eating enough? Maybe I have been on a low carb low fat diet unintentionally? (apart from the treacle sponge) I really want to lose at least another 2 stones and I am wondering if I should go onto a LCHF route, my partner's weight is ok but she is carrying a bit of weight around the middle, she also has loads of carbs and sugary stuff which I think is down to her diet so I would try and convince her to go LCHF with me.
Should i wait until i have completed the 12 week plan before switching to LCHF or stick with what I am doing and up the protein?
There are so many contradictory recommendations I am feeling confused, any help and advice would be welcomed John
