I lost about 40 pounds around 4 years ago. I started limiting my calorie intake and being much more active. I also started using MyFitnessPal, which is a rockstar app that you should definitely downtown if you’re trying to be healthy. You can insert your height, weight, weight loss goal per week, and what kind of lifestyle you lead.
I’ve apparently had mine set on a “nonactive” lifestyle and wanting to lose 2 pounds per week for a while now which was telling me to eat about 1,240 calories.
As a result, I’ve been starving all winter. Like, legit starving. I spoke to one of my best friends the other day who works in the medical field and when I asked her if I was eating enough she gasped and said absolutely now.
I changed my settings on MyFitnessPal to an active lifestyle and I only set it to 1 pound a week. My new calorie goal? 1,840. I’ve been much less hungry over the last few days.
There was no point to this. I just wanted to put it out there incase anyone else finds themselves hungry this winter. Check your app settings 😉
