So, it's been 6 weeks I've maintained pallet control. Zinzen has suggested that what I believe to be a 15-1800 calorie daily intake is insufficient to stay out of starvation mode and continue to lose fat. I've been hanging out under 204# for a bit. According to my WW scale I've lost some muscle as part of the >15 lbs lost in a month and a half. While I haven't once really binged at night, my late night calories have increased from some weeks ago. Generally I have felt a little low energy and unmotivated to go to the gym as much as I'd like, (3-4x a week). Here's yesterday:

AM
oatmeal w/ raisins, walnuts, cinnamon
Assam tea, soy milk
multi

pm
banana, soy milk, hemp pro50

gym

3 ww pita, mung&lentil sprouts, a garden fresh tomato, an avocado
Assam tea, soy milk
Earl grey, soy milk

late
4 oz tempeh fried in olive oil with 1 red and 1 green Amish grown peppers

i was wondering the same thing about your calories, as tom. are you zigzagging at all or incorporating any kind of overfeeding time?
