You need to allow yourself indulge once in awhile.  You don’t need to completely pig-out, but you can have a delicious cheeseburger using very lean ground meat.  I always buy between 95-97% lean meat.

So you know what. Have a cheeseburger

Make a 93/7 lean beef patty. Add one slice 2 percent cheese and sautéed mushrooms. Eat open faced on a Whole wheat toast. Add tomato and lettuce. Eat a side of roasted cauliflower.

Eat the same favors but healthier. If you deprive too much you aren’t eating a sustainable diet.

Hmmm… wel sounds like your going through a bit of deprivation, and should allow yourself some cheat space so you don’t just give up and blow it big time.

I’m sorry that you feel as though weight holds a huge issue in your employment prospects, but just try to be positive, inviting and polite, as you can have any social personality you would like if you work on it a bit!

and I haven’t eaten for days

There is a huge difference between dieting and just not eating. Besides, there is absolutely nothing wrong with treating yourself occasionally. Actually, if you refuse to indulge ever, there’s a good chance you will break down and suddenly eat very poorly, whereas now you could just eat maybe half a cheeseburger, get lean meat as PP said, and then hold off again for a while.

But if you honestly haven’t eaten for days, please see a doctor and get some help, that’s not healthy at all.

Sadly, your body is trying to keep you alive! Our bodies are still wired for the days of hunting mammoths. Cheeseburgers, cake, candy = quick energy and lots of calories. We’re hard-wired to like higher fat and sweet foods.

Ugh, maybe scientists can figure out to wire us like rabbits instead!

If you’re craving it that much, eat the freaking cheeseburger!  Just don’t top it off with a plate of fries and a coke or something like that.  I’ve been eating healthier (I refuse to call it dieting, because I’m really eating the way I should have been eating all along) since January, but I still allow myself an indulgence once in awhile.  Considering the fact that I’ve lost 76 pounds, I don’t think it’s done me much harm!

I missed the part about not eating for days.  Well, you’re not doing your body any good by not eating.  Anything you do it, your body is going to store as fat anyways.  Not healthy whatsoever for so many reasons.  Don’t kill yourself to get down 5 dress sizes.  That’s a huge accomplishment.  Your best bet is to exercise, eat right, and DO indulge once in awhile.  Hurting your body for a dress isn’t going to make your wedding any more magical.  You’ll look beautiful no matter what size you are and if you only lose one or two dress sizes.

Umm like pps… Haven’t eaten for real? Or as in you feel like that?

A diet doesn’t have to feel strict. There are tons of fLavors and ways to prepare many healthy foods that don’t seem like they are “diet” foods.

Like my dinner tonight. Creole chicken cutlets (pounded and breaded with crushed quinoa) served with a brown rice “patty” (small) made with garlic salt and egg white. And roasted onions and mushrooms in balsamic vinaigrette.

Definitely don’t go without eating- that is a sure way to crash your metabolism and have your body go in to a mode where it will hoard every calorie it can.

If you’re craving it then have some cheeseburger! then maybe for the next meal stick to some lean meat and a vegie juice or similar to balance out your day. If you Hold out on the foods you love and go without them for a long time, then there’s more chance of giving up on a diet- as that kind of long term denial can make for a very unsustainable and unhappy eating plan.

Your body has switched to starvation mode.  That’s not good. You have to eat!! I suggest trying the 17 Day Diet by Dr Mike Moreno. Read the reviews of the book on Amazon. I lost 5 pounds on the first cycle but I don’t have very much to lose (10-15lbs total). It taught me how to eat better and eliminate some things but it definitely didn’t leave me hungry at all.

500 cal a day? WTF That is not healthy and whoever told you that is full of bull shit! My friend who had gastric bypass surgery is told to eat 800 cals a day, a normal person should not eat below 1200.

Personally, I’ve noticed that I always crazy cheeseburgers when I am pmsing. I figured out that it was the red meat I was craving and it made perfect sense. My BODY was craving IRON.
