okay... more questions.
as I said before, im 5'10 and 150 lbs. I've looked up my calorie maintenance and I need approx 1500 cals with no activity. I'm aiming at over 2000 cals. If you read my last post, you'd know that I'm having a hard time getting in my calories.
I've actually just come to realization that I was starving myself.. not even on purpose. The months of may/june were terrible.. i use to sleep 10 hours a night and nap for 1-3 hours after work.. and now have realized that my diet (or lack of) was probably the cause.
I've been using fitdiary the last few days, just to see how I'm doing..it's really helpful... however, i've been making an effort to eat more.. but Im struggling in the 1400-1800 range and I'm so frusterated.
I'm looking to lose 5-10 lbs and gain muscle too. But honestly, the number on the scale doesn't really matter to me. .as long as I feel good.
My first question is.. how many calories should I be aiming for with the goals I have? I'm scared to fall back into this starving state again.. (which could happen.. if I'm only eating 1500 cals.. and working out everyday)
I'm honestly just obsessing over getting these numbers up.. and I feel like Im trying so hard and when I look at the overall numbers at the end of the day.. I'm just so frusterated.
Anyways.. here's my link
I've updated today.. just what I'll eat until I go home for supper.
Also, I'm in the process of getting some whey protein powder.. so I was planning on incorporating 1-2 a day, so this will help too.
Thanks again for the help.
