SKINNY GIRLS HOW YOU BE SKINNY PLZ LET ME KNOW.
Because 1200 calories isn’t enough. Eat your BMR on days you don’t exercise and more than it on days you do. You’ll be hungry if you’re not eating enough.
This is why I hate this chart:
Who the hell would write, “Now that’s just skinny!” for the underweight section? Honestly, when dealing with girls these days, no one wants to be in the “ideal range.” When many girls see that “ideal range” is right above “that’s just skinny!” then they probably think, “I don’t wanna be ideal… I wanna be skinny!”
Now on another note, I don’t like these charts in general. Honestly, some girls who are much taller are totally and completely naturally healthy at somewhere that is considered underweight. Everyone is built differently, which is why these charts make zero sense.
So, what I’m trying to say here is to not look at a chart when you want to know how much weight you think you should lose or how much you should weigh. Look in the mirror. Are you happy with your appearance? Do you think you look healthy for some one with your build?
Make your weight loss decisions based on how you’re built, not by a chart that some one made. You’re beautiful when you think you’re beautiful, not when a chart says you are.
Gorgeous legs on all three of them.
My biggest problem is woofing down my food without even tasting it. I can be done with a bowl of pasta in two minutes flat and be ready for seconds. Unfortunately, this isn’t a good thing when dieting. The faster you eat, the more you’ll want to eat.
I’ve learned to pace myself by taking smaller bites, chewing more, and have a gulp of water between bites. But then there’s that problem of eating out of boredom…
A good solution for eating too quickly/out of habit is to eat foods that take you longer to eat.
For me, the perfect food is String Cheese. Target Brand has some that are light, so they’re only 60 calories. The perfect caloric amount for a small snack. As long as you make sure you’re actually peeling the cheese, and not eating it in bites, it should take at least five minutes to eat it. For me it takes anywhere from 15-20 minutes because I’m so focused on peeling the cheese in even amounts!
Another good way to make you eat slower is to cut foods up smaller. Get an apple and cut it into small cubes rather than slices. Have a sip of water between each little cube.
Oranges are another great slow food. Instead of cutting it in slices, take you time peeling it. I don’t know about you, but I hate the taste of the white stuff on oranges. So I spend foreeeever picking off every bit of the white before eating my little orange section. Oranges, when peeled, not sliced, take me about 15 minutes to eat.
Popcorn is a great, low calorie snack. If you make yourself eat one kernel at a time (rather than a handful) and take a drink of water between every few kernels, then you’ll be full in no time!
So, with this I hope it gave you some ideas on how to take snacks and pace out your eating more. It will help you cope with boredom eating and you’ll be able to wait longer between meals!
Nothing is better than ginger ale when you have an upset tummy!
