So two days ago I ran 13.1 miles had 1450 calories and woke up gaining 1.2 lbs. Now last night I did 75 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes weights and gained another 2 lbs. This pattern has been going on for a week now! I am up 7 lbs from last week even though I have uped my working out and extra 20-30 minutes a day. I stick to under 1500 calroies each day too. somewhere between 1300-1500. 5"8 and 135 now! Last week was 128! what the heck! how discouraging! Help me please before I lose my mind lol!
You need to eat real food. Looking at your food diary, you eat a lot of what I would call empty calorie junk. You especially should be avoiding processed food.
Try something like:
-Salad w/ 1 tbsp of salad dressing or a cup of green veggies of your choice
-1 Chicken Breast or 2 Chicken Thighs or 6 oz of pork loin
-1/2 cup to 1 cup of rice or equivalent amount of bread or pasta
All processed food is only hurting you. Things like: White Bread, Goldfish Crackers, Campbells Soup, American Cheese
Instead: Wheat Bread, Wheat Crackers, Make Your Own Chicken Soup...take chicken, celery, carrots, onions, egg noodles and boil it, Cheddar/Swiss or any other non processed Cheese
I see no veggies or fruits in your diet. You want some in every meal. Veggies have like no calories and your body loves them. My favorite is broccoli. Take a zip lock bag, put a cup of freshly cut and washed broccoli, put a bit of salt and pepper, shake it up, put a bit of water, make a few holes in the bag and microwave for 90 seconds.
If you're going to have a shake, put fruit in it. I use 1 cup of Frozen Organic Blueberries from Costco or just use a whole banana in a shake.
