Less calories , more exercise but lost less
you seem to be pretty low on the protein amount you are getting, try decreasing the sugar and starch to about 50% and upping your protein to 25 or 30 percent and see if that works for you.

Evening Cravings
If you are eating like you were in january, then you are eating too little during the day, try to spread at least 1200 calories over the course of your day with a good mix of protein, fats, and carbs, and that should take care of most of your late night problem.

New ideas for lunch
ok, this might not be revolutionary to you all, but I tried it today and wow was it great.

Let me preface by saying that I don't eat any of the frozen meals out there, because i cannot stand the flavor, but i tried a green valley fresh steamer today called "Healthy colors". Its a steampack of tomato, zuccini, peppers and carrots in an olive oil herb sauce - I added some chicken to it and for under 300 calories, I am litterally STUFFED!!!

Anyone else do this or have any of your own clever ideas on lunch options?

The chocolate releases endorphins in your brain which make you feel happy.(They are also released in exersicing). Your body remembers the feeling of the endorphins and wants more - causing you to crave the chocolate.

and it may be truly addictive... see the study in the link below

Anyone eat before a workout?
think of your body like a car, you wouldnt try to drive 200 miles without gas in the tank would you? I eat about 30 minutes or so before a work out, nothing huge, just a spoonful of peanut butter, a hard boiled egg, a piece of string cheese, or even a small peice of chicken or turkey - something to give me some protein.
