My first week on my new schedule is going good so far. Been off since Monday night! Feels good, I feel grounded. I miss feeling that way. Everything else will eventually fall into place.

I have a blog I want to share with y’all called www.GoKaleo.com . I hope you find some useful reading material here. She talks alot about eating MORE not less to not only reset your metabolism, but to lose weight as well (if that is your goal). What I like about Amber is that she backs a lot of her stuff up with RESEARCH! I know right?!! Real live research..who would have thunk!

One of my favorite posts of hers:

“I said this once on my page and got SO much crap for it, but it’s important: You will NOT ‘get fat’ eating 2200 calories of mostly healthy food a day. 2200 calories of mostly healthy food a day simply won’t support more than about 140/150 pounds at a moderate activity level. (I’m using 2200 as an example here, not mandating that everyone begin eating 2200 calories a day immediately. Everyone’s calorie needs are unique to their own situation. Some people need more, some people need less, but 2200 is pretty ‘moderate’ so I use it in examples like this.) Some people may gain weight when they up their calories, if their new intake is more than their body needs to support their current weight or if their metabolic function has been depressed by extended periods of undereating, but they won’t gain indefinitely, they will gain until their weight catches up to their intake and then plateau. I swear to god, you will not become obese eating a moderate am…ount of mostly healthy food. You WILL however feel better, have more energy, and begin to emerge the mental maze of diet restriction. The initial weight gain is why I recommend increasing calories gradually if you’ve been restricting for a long time. If you’ve been cycling between periods of restriction and bingeing, adopting a more consistent, moderate eating pattern will probably stabilize your weight more quickly than if you’ve been just undereating. If you feel like you’re eating an appropriate amount of food but you’re gaining weight beyond an initial 5-8 pound bump, you may be underestimating your intake or overestimating your activity level. Spend a few days really paying attention to both, even weighing and measuring your food, to make sure you’re eating and moving as much as you think you are. If your tracking is accurate and you’re still gaining, there could be a metabolic issue such as thyroid dysfunction or insulin resistance, and seeing a doctor might be a good idea to rule out any treatable conditions. I encourage eating foods you enjoy, but protein and fruits and vegetables are still the most filling and highly thermic foods there are, so make sure you’re getting plenty of each. The vast majority of women here will need somewhere between 2000 and 3000 calories a day to maintain a healthy weight. Only those on the extreme ends of the size and activity spectrum will need less or more than that for maintenance.”- Go Kaleo.
So many of us have this idea of what *dieting* really is or should be like. We have been taught for so long about restricting calories, and don’t eat this and don’t eat that. Carbs are bad, fats are bad, sugar is bad..etc..etc..It’s hard to UNDO so many years of having all this drilled into our heads. I urge you to rethink the way you eat and reinvent your relationship with food. Your body will thank you for it.

About runningawaywithme

I'm a mom to 3 gorgeous children and married to a wonderful guy! I work in Critical Care and I classify myself on some levels as an adreneline junky. However, I am terrified of heights! Go figure! Im dedicated to running and physical fitness. There are no excuses good enough to not keep yourself healthy in body and in mind.

Posted on March 21, 2013, in Food/Eating?Menus, Running, Weight training and tagged , , , , , , . Bookmark the permalink. 8 Comments.

  1. Eating more and loosing weight is something I learned throughout my years of lifting which I guess is why I don’t bother to count calories or log my food. I’ll have to check her blog out.

    Nice pictures! Seeing progress 🙂

  2. Just checked her out and just realized I’ve “seen” her around but it must have been ages ago when I was heavy into lifting and researching etc. I’d recognize that tattoo any day! My memory sucks but it wouldn’t surprise me if she wasn’t a member of a group that I was on years ago called pinkdumbells .She’s posting some good stuff

    • I follow her for her food blogs. I really like what she has to say and the fact that she backs everything up. I know she likes to lift heavy, but, I don’t follow her for that. I’m trying to re-train my brain into thinking that I need to feed it properly. Which is coming along.

      • well if she’s going to blog about it I’d hope she’d do her due diligence of researching things to back it up.

        If you do enough research etc it won’t be too hard to retrain your brain and once you do, reaching your goals will be sooooooooo much easier!

  3. I tell you it’s MUCH easier to to validate progress when you take pictures than depending on what you see in the mirror at least it is for me. I am doing well (other than the balance crap) I no longer “look” like I should be in physical therapy and I’m feeling very strong. Now just gotta strengthen some of the smaller muscles groups

  4. It’s a double edge sword.

My goal with this blog is to offend everyone in the world at least once with my words… so no one has a reason to have a heightened sense of themselves. We are all ignorant, we are all found wanting, we are all bad people sometimes.
