The Starvation Diet

I feel that I am taking off the weight, my pants are not as tight and I can walk a bit more. I am counting every single calorie I put in my mouth.  I even bought a bag of carrots for the first time in ages. However, today I woke up extremely tired.

For the last couple of days, I have experienced a loss of energy. My walks have been tortures. Just getting up is tiring. I am falling asleep while reading. I have trouble focusing and remembering things.

I thought it was a side effect from my meds. I have just realized it is coming from my new diet. The most I have eaten in the last week is 1400 calories but lately I ate less than 1000 calories. I know I am under-eating but I am so concerned about what I eat that I am becoming scared of food.

I have no appetite. I thought it was a good thing and it would help me lose weight but I am feeling very weak. I am just really not that hungry. I have this new challenge of eating less and less.  When I look at my food log and see the calorie counts go down, it excites me. All I care about is keeping the numbers low.

There is a lot of research out there on healthy eating but not much on what to eat when you’re not hungry.  I don’t want to force-feed myself. What’s the worse that can happen if I continue eating like this?

Not only this, you will have no energy to actually exercise and burn any calories. Exercise keeps the body in shape, toned and healthy. All the best. Hope you find your balance. Betty x
