I'm a powerlifter with an eating-disordered background trying to use this site to find a super-moderate, slow-and-steady way of losing about 35-45 pounds of fat in 2014 without compromising performance. Ultimately, I would like to drop into the 90kg weight class—which means losing around 80 pounds total.

I hope to be able to continue to make strength gains, which means that I have to work with a really narrow margin for fat loss. I eat a lot to support metabolism and activity, so there won't be any 1500-calorie days. There probably won't be any 2000-calorie days. That does make me feel out of place on a diet site, but we'll see how things go.

Diet Goals 2014:
—log food here daily
—weekly caloric deficit of 2.000-3.500
—monthly caloric deficit of 8,500-14,000
—get at least 150g of protein daily
—watch the mindset for symptomatic thinking ("the bigger the deficit, the better," "if I don't eat breakfast I won't be hungry until later," "no carbs today," etc.) and remember it's symptomatic, i.e. don't let the worst parts of my brain start doing the planning

Performance Goals 2014:
—train 3-4x weekly
—squat 315 lbs for work sets
—deadlift 315 lbs for work sets
—bench 150 lbs for work sets
—press 100 lbs for work sets

I have a question: How will eating make you sleep?


Eating helps you sleep because hunger upregulates alertness (makes sense: if you're hungry, you need to stay awake to acquire food). (Conversely, lack of sleep upregulates appetite.)

Or, more readably: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orexin#Wakefulness

You also do in fact need fuel to sleep—especially if you're active, since sleep is when recovery happens, and that process requires fuel. So going to bed distinctly hungry is not a good idea—and "cravings" are usually just hunger. I'd consider eating more.

One further note: I realized I'd been overcounting the caloric burn of training sessions. When I do only a standard session, I'm on the gym floor for ...

I had access to the scale where I'd last weighed and had used for my last weight on this site: it puts me down 4 pounds. This is a nice result. My lifts ...
