HI i am new to fast-5 and jumped right into the lifestyle 4 days ago with no problem; however, today was a bit challenging for me to make it to the 19th hour for some reason even though i made it yesterday, so i only made it till the 17th hour before i had to cave in and eat something. Not surprising i was full after 1/2 of shredded wheat cereal and whol organic milk (1 cup). I drink a lot of water and had 20oz coffe from starbucks. I had my dinner and even a piece of candy and i still only got to 1042 kcal before my window closed. 1024 kcal is the first time since i started the program that i was up to 1000 usually its between 600-900 and this is not on purpose, i just end up getting full before i can keep eating before my window closes.
about me im 5'7 started orignially at 288, started fast-5 at 268 today im 262.4.
i do aeorpilates on one day, other day silm in 6 with resistance bands and sometimes power 90 although im supper bored with power 90 its definietly not for women so i ll stick with the silm in 6 and aeropilates, i work out about 6 days a week and im always drenched after and usually sore everyday but with the fasting i definitely have not been nearly as sore as i have been in the past.
question: what should i do about not being able to consume as many calories as i probably should (especially since im working out cardio/ resistance bands/ resistance training) which i was told by some online program that 1800-1500 is ideal for weight loss and anything under that is dangerous, but i feel fine, great even, except for the hours closer to my 19th hour but i know this will get better so im not worried about that. should i open my window longer to get in more calories? or should i force myself to eat more? (not really down with this idea lol)
