IO have attempted fat loss before. Eerytime I lose about 2 inches off my waist circumference, I hti a 'wall'.
This wall is an extreme hunger, where I feel very 'depleted'. The hunger can only be sated by eating tremendous amts of unhealthy saturated fats.
I am experiencing this again.
My usual cutting diet (and my builking diet) consists of 30, 40 , 30 (carbs, protein, unsaturated fats in calories). The cutting calories is about 2800, with my maintenance being about 3500-3600 calories. Today, I had extreme hunger pangs, and ended up eating over 4000 calories (I am on a cut now). If I ignore it, I cannot mentally concentrate at all or muster the energy to even get out of my house. I would become etxrnmeley irritated.
When I increase my calories, it doesnt work...this extreme hunger was only supppressed when I ate 4 drumstricks in 1 sitting, with 2 more meals several hours later, exceeding my alotted 2800/day calories.
Does anyone know what is physiologically happening to me when I experience this extreme hunger? If I eat more than 2800 calories, I cant really lose that fat. Please help.
