Here are two days of eating for me.
Ive tracked calories for years, started tracking macros, and just said SCREW IT last week and stopped it all.
I have suffered from disordered eating. Was underweight at 93lbs 16months ago, now I am 5ft 5.5in and 115lbs.
My training: heavy lifting (free weights) 4x/week, HIIT 3x, power yoga 1-2x.
I have had over eating problems before and work on it daily. But I still feel I am eating way to freaking much. I mean, with the amount I train and my age, I hear that I NEED to eat a lot. But since lifting heavier weights since December Ive gained 8lbs (up from 108. Hopefully muscle) and overall feel fat and gross. But I love to eat...
I should also note that I LOVE cooking and 95% of what I eat is wholesome and cooked at home. I don't eat gluten, only sprouted grains/legumes, and limit dairy due to intolerance. Also only natural sugars (fruit and honey).
