The nights are the worst.  I usually drink a small glass of chocolate milk.  It’s healthy and fills me up, plus satisfies the chocolate craving.  That, or Greek yogurt!

Are you eating back your exercise calories?

I have a cup of tea with a splash of my favorite creamer (pumpkin spice or english toffee) at night, and it really helps to curb cravings.

I was trying 1500 (to lose 1.5lbs a week), but I was feeling faint and couldn’t sleep, waking up every few hours just starving so I’m at 1750 now, or just a little less, and I’m not dizzy or waking up hungry until the morning. Add a couple snacks, if you’re too hungry you’ll just get sick and your body will go into starvation mode and not let you lose anything. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll do the light popcorn thing sometimes too like the a pp said, I buy 100cal mini bags because they’re easy.

If you’re mainly looking to maintain/tone then I’d focus on working out, 1500cal is probably too low for that. Talk to a doc?

Have you tried myfitnesspal.com? It’s a great way to figure out around what you should be aiming for and know what calories you’re eating. Also, what MissNerdy said, popcorn is a great snack…pb and banana…greek yogurt…lots of water

A visit with a nutritionist or dietitian would be a very good investment— here where I live, a dietitian costs between $75-150 for the first one-hour visit, and less for any shorter follow-ups you need, but the price depends a lot on where you live. So it might be cheaper or more expensive for you, but it’s money well spent.

My Fitness Pal is a really great helper but it’s not entirely accurate in many things; for example, it will tell you that you are over in your sugars for the day but it treats all sugars as the same, and even just one banana puts most folks over.  Like anyone ever gained weight from having a handful of blueberries with that banana!  But according to My Fitness Pal, that’s a no-no.

Which is precisely the type of thing a dietitian will tell you.  A good one will request a food diary on your first visit— you have to track everything for 3-7 days before the visit, depending on the dietitian.  They will analyze it and tell you ways you can make your diet more balanced, and make sure you are getting enough calories to sustain weight loss (because there really is such a thing as eating too few calories).  They will also review the timing of your meals, and even the healthiest people will learn a few tips.

Considering how much money we all spend putting on these weddings, it’s kind of silly that we won’t take a hundred bucks to spend on something as important as what we’re putting in our bodies!
