ALWAYS HUNGRY

eatmymedseatmymeds Member, Premium Posts: 7 Member Member, Premium Posts: 7 Member
Finally hit my goal of 130lbs at 5'4". I am eating 6 + veggies/fruits a day. I am a vegetarian but eat tons of tofu/beans/fiber. So what the heck is going on?
Oh I do Bikram 2 or 3 times a week and trail run 2 or 3 times a week. Any tips?

    Are you getting enough fat? When I don't get enough fat, I can get really hungry.

    What is your calorie goal? Are you eating back any of your activity calories?

    Make sure you're getting enough fat and protein

    Most def eat back my calories. But I probably need some additional healthy fats. Love that avocado season is here.

    I'm not sure what kind of protein and fat you consider unhealthy, but for protein I personally enjoy beans, seitan, tofu, and tempeh. For fat, I like nuts, coconut oil, olive oil, avocado, olives, and tahini.

    How many total calories are you eating?
  • slaite1slaite1 Member, Premium Posts: 1,313 Member Member, Premium Posts: 1,313 Member
    Avocado
    Nuts
    Chocolate
    Dairy (if you eat dairy)
    Gardein products are delicious sources of protein
    Beans never fill me up, neither does tofu

    Lately I have been having a morning snack of sweet potatoes (roasted, mashed, sauteed in butter and spices). I find that it really fills me up all morning. Root veggies are full of nutritious fiber and starches.

    You needed permission to eat?

    Make sure you're eating fibrous foods, and a good macro balance. And drinking enough water?
