I'm pretty good at watching what I eat and when I started gaining weight for no good reason (that I could see), I dropped my calorie intake down to around 1200kcal; I do not find this leaves me hungry or underfed. I still gained weight, albeit not as fast.
As it turns out my thyroid levels were out of whack and this is almost certainly behind the increase in weight, half a stone in under six months. Once I discovered this I kept to my restricted intake and am exercising as much as my energy levels (and common sense) will allow. The question is this: when my dosage increase takes effect should I raise my calorie intake temporarily to maintain my current, higher weight, and then drop the calories to shift the pounds gained, or should I keep to my current intake and see what happens? If I ate the appropriate amount of calories for the weight I was at before all this kicked off, would all hell break loose whilst waiting for the higher level of meds to take effect?
