I NEED HELP WITH CALORIES/METABOLISM! Does anyone know about calorie restriction for weight loss? Preferably someone with experience with it. For the past 2 months or so I created a slight calorie deficit to help me lose weight. I don’t think there is anything wrong with calorie deficits as long as they are not extreme. Anyway, it was working up until about 2 weeks ago. Then this week I have not been creating this deficit I’ve just been eating more intuitively and I have not gained or lost “weight” but I have lost a little bit around my waist (like 1/4 of an inch) I am six pounds away from my goal weight but I’m not sure what to do now. Creating the calorie deficit doesn’t really seem necessary anymore. Or maybe I should up it somedays and lower it others? I don’t have enough knowledge about metabolism and how the body processes calories to determine what’s going on with my body. I’ve also started doing more ab/quad/glute exercises which I think contributed to the inches lost. Or maybe because I eat a low fat plant based diet the weight will take care of itself now? Advice?
If you’re like me and love pumpkin flavored things, you have to try this. Pumpkin pie “nice cream”. So good. Tastes just like pumpkin pie.
Here’s the recipe:
3 bananas, frozen
1/2 cup of 100% pure pumpkin purée, also frozen
3 tbs nutmeg
3 tbs ground cinnamon
2 packets of stevia in the raw (optional)
Crushed walnuts (also optional)
I recommend freezing the bananas for at least 2.5 hours to make sure that the nice cream turns out closer to the consistency of actual ice cream.
I’m thinking about using this as a filling for a frozen vegan pumpkin pie. I’m gonna test it and get back to all of you.
PUT THIS IN YOUR MOUF.
Um yea I need this. Just saying
This time last year I was almost 3 inches bigger around my waist than I am now. Ashtanga yoga and switching to plant based have been a bigger help than I actually realized. I need to
Remind myself change is possible and something I deserve and am achieving! When I get sad I need to remember how far I’ve come.
Ugh so nervous to post this photo. SEE I DON’T HAVE ABS OR A FLAT STOMACH BUT I CAN STILL SMILE! Day 10 of #yogapartypeople #yogahands = mudras :) This one is to open the third eye!
