So.... I have a problem. I can't seem to get my body weight under control. I try my best, but right now my weight is constant. I want to lose about 16 pounds (doesn't everyone?). I registered into a health forum and told them my problem. I have re-evaluated my entire lifestyle and diet. I lift weights 3 times per week and I walk 5-12 km per day (Monday-Friday). I eat about 1800 kcal per day divided into 5-6 small meals. It used to be 2500kcal mainly during dinner. I told them my problem and what did they tell me... "You ate an entire banana during a meal? You know how many carbs that is?" "You don't need that protein shake after practice! It's calories! You don't want to build muscle, do you?" "10g of chocolate? Eat an apple in stead!"
It was a culture shock for me! It makes no sense. People are nuts. I'm not after a strict diet. I just want to improve my lifestyle. 1800 kcal with consistent weight lifting and lots of walking should be enough to use more calories than I eat, at least if I don't eat it all in 1-2 meals. Eating healthy is not the same as watching your sister eat chocolate and say you can't even have one piece because you're trying to "eat healthy". *notgonnarant,notgonnarant,notgonnarant*
