I lost 106 lbs, then battled starvation as I was so scared to go back that I refused to eat, but now I struggle to get the right balance. I feel like when I have a "bad weekend", I'll drink a 2 liter of pop, eat pizza, wings, etc. and I stop on the scale on monday and somehow lose 2 lbs. Then I eat great for a few days, make sure I am intaking only about 1400-1600 calories a day, and BOOM I gain 5 lbs in 5 days? I honestly seem to lose more weight when I eat poorly, and gain it when I eat well, which gives me only two prospective thoughts: 1. Weight gain is like sleep- its not what you did yesterday that matters, but instead its the day before- or in weight loss, maybe a week before? 2. If you eat too little calories you might go into starvation mode and actually pack on more lbs. I should be at about 3000 calories, so 1400-1600 may be a little too low Are either one of those accurate? It's driving me absolutely mad, and I'm afraid I'm getting close to starving myself again just because foods scaring me again since it's so unpredictable. Maybe someone can give me some insight so I can successfully maintain?
