My name is Samantha. I am 17. A year ago I was suffering from anorexia. Now that I am back to a normal weight and have less anxiety related to my food and weight, I want to put my energies towards getting fit. And so this blog was created.  are Fabulous and Fit
THEME DESIGN BY JAMESLREDFIELD

Hey guys.

So I was hoping to get some advice and things.

I know I never post anymore but that’s cause I made a new fitblr in case you haven’t heard:)

But I have more followers here so I may be more likely to get feedback since my followers over there are ignoring me on this topic.

I want to try doing a cut for a few weeks and see how that does me, to try to shed some excess fat that is hiding my muscles. (No I don’t think I am fat but I think I tiny bit of flab is hiding my muscles away. You don’t make as much improvement as I have without building muscle haha.)

So I started my cut yesterday, and I am going to go for 1-2 weeks and see how I am feeling to determine whether or not I keep doing it. I don’t want to do something that makes my body unhappy and if my body ends up not liking it..so be it. I will not hurt myself for aesthetics.

So this is what’s going down:

  • Going to try to eat fewer calories*. Not excessively fewer but just cutting them here and there.
  • Up the protein.
  • Upping cardio. Going to try to hit the roads when it’s nice out and hit the treadmill when it’s not.
  • Lifting heavier. (Going to be hard cause I already lift as heavy as I can but hey I will push myself)

*Only a few hundred though. I’ll try not to go under 1500? I won’t be counting but I will just minimize where I know I can. More cheerios, less Kashi and Grapenuts. Go  back to one peice of bread sandwiches, use a little less peanutbutter (2-3 tbs instead of like 4-5 lmao). Cut back on dinner carbs. It’s late, why do I need carbs? Carbs is for energy, I don’t need energy at night. Still going to have them obv. but I will try to up the veggies to fill the carb spot in my dinners to fill me. I have been trying to do that more anyways.

Any advice, tips, criticism would still be appreciated if you think I am missing something or doing this wrong:)

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GIVE SOME FEEDBACKKK I HAVE NEVERR DONE THIS SORT OF THING outside of restricting during my ED that is, (not too worried about being triggered by this cut but I will push through it, I refuse to hurt my body)

Ask box and obligatory question mark?

asdkjhaifrhjaioweu help?

Should I start trying to use a calorie counting website again a couple times a week? I honestly don’t know how many I am getting and I only ever guestimate. Sometimes I will look back and “count” a few days worth in my head but that is super estimated and probably way off.

I would be doing this to make sure I am eating enough not to restrict, but I don’t want it to end up triggering ( A year into recovering from eating disorder). And I could use one of the ones that do micronutrients so I can see my protein-carb-fat intake. I don’t know if I am getting enough of/too much of those either.

Advice?

Oh I leave you with this

So I was googling stuff, and one of the results brought me to My Fitness Pal

I used this site for a little while a while back. In fact, I logged in and my info said I was 80 pounds trying to get to 85. And I still had my calories set at 1000. So, very beginning of recovery, last time I used it.

Okey so I was like well now I want to see how much this thinks I should eat.

I made a new account..put in my info (roughly 100 lbs. 5’2”. Girl. 17. Lot’s of activity). And it said 1800. Now the site I used last week said to get 2,245.

That is a 400 calorie difference..a small meal.

Not even concidering the fact that as a recovered/recovering anorexic it has been said that I will need to eat more calories to maintain my weight. (Not sure how true this is or how much more I am supposed to eat)

Now I don’t count them because I fear that will trigger me. But I keep in mind a rough estimate of how much I have had so I know that I have gotten enough. And if there was a difference of say 100 calories on these two sites I would just be like ehh, close enough. But when it’s a small meal that I could be under or over eating, it makes me wonder how much I am supposed to get..

If anyone could get at my ask box to help me out with this it would be greatly appreciated!!

I would have written more but dinner is done.

Okey what the hell, the site I just tried said I should have 1360. I don’t fucking think so,

Guys If anyone here knows anything about this stuff (which I am assuming at least half of my followers do) could you help me out, please?

just to throw it out there,

I made a stats page

It’s kind of..not as..it’s, yeah I have no words you’d just have to see it.

I feel like a lot of people who claim to be health blogs„ don’t really understand healthy eating.

When I see someone post what and how much they ate, it is rarely enough for one person. The average woman needs roughly 2000 calories a day to maintain their weight, especially when constantly exercising. And the average male, 2500. This doesn’t even count if you are trying to gain muscle!

In addition, these blogs generally  post how anything that is sweet, sugary, or greasy is bad.

MODERATION is key. Moderation and eating enough is what makes your diet healthy.

So yes all the foods that you do eat on a regular basis are important for maintaining a balanced diet,  But eating “junk” food every once in a while is a very healthy thing to do. It is healthy for you mentally, you will not tie these foods to negative thoughts causing anxiety whenever you “give in” and eat it. It is also healthy for you physically, it kind of shocks your system, causing it to work harder for just a minute, it’s like a jump start on a vehicle.

The problem is people think that eating these foods ever will turn them into obese sascuatches. It takes an excess of 3500 calories to gain one pound of fat. Eating some pizza or cake here or there is not going to make you gain weight. Especially when a person is physically active and generally eats natural, fresh, and whole grain foods.
