    Jtandi got a reaction from frantastic in Fat adapted   
    I'm sure other people have already said this to you and I cringe to even say it but stop with the calorie counting. it is a complete myth that "a calorie is a calorie is a calorie" - that's why calories in vs calories out has no place in a whole 9 world. you should have no idea how many calories you are consuming in a day. I know it's hard to let this go, but I hope you can try it for a while. and I'm not sure how you know exactly how many calories you are burning in a day -
    your body will begin to let go of fat when it realizes it no longer needs to hold on to it - that it is getting enough fat in the diet and there is no starvation going on. as far as eating when you are not hungry - if you are truly not hungry I would suggest eating a smaller meal. on the lower end of the template. I believe once things begin to normalize a bit more (hormones, etc) I bet you will be more hungry. I have some days I could eat a horse, but there are other days when I just don't want to eat. can you spread meals out more? I found, too, that sometimes I don't feel hungry but it's my "scheduled" time to eat. if I wait about 1/2 hour I am suddenly starving...so I think my body just knows how long to hang out and then I can get into trouble because I'm not always prepared.
    good luck!!! and stop counting those calories girl! I did that once to prove a point - I added up the grams of fat I had during lunch. it turned out to be about 60. that right there was about 550 calories - that's not including the calories from the carbs or protein. and that was one meal. I am 5'4" and I work out but not every day (3x a week). I have no idea how many calories I burn a day and I have no idea how many calories I eat a day but I do know I've lost over 25 lbs and 23", I was wearing a size 12 and just bought some size 6 shorts. (SHORTS! HOLY CRAP)

    thanks so much for this post! I am on my first whole30 ever (or whole100 if I have my way) and have started to stress out a little bit today. I was actually upset with myself for having 3 pieces of fruit and cashew butter on two different occasions. did I stick to the rules? yes. could my food choices have been better? yes. did I drink diet coke and have cookies for breakfast like I did a week ago? nope. so that is success. I don't want to get discouraged and worry about how I can cook my veggies/meat/whatever.
