So I put in what I ate today. Though I think I've done quite badly today, since I caved in and ate a piece of caramel slice for dessert, I came in under the target, 1565. Then it said to put in my exercise - a friend and I went for a bike ride around the lake, about 2 hours worth. Adding this made me significantly below the reccomonded number of calories, only 687 all up.
I had a look around the website, and it said I shouldn't aim for below the target, but exactly at the target. Otherwise I go into starvation mode and don't loose any weight. Also my day isn't finished until I've eaten all the calories.
So should I go downstairs and get a couple of chocolates out of the vending machine? Somehow I don't think so...
So what's the deal? Have I eaten enough to loose weight? I feel full enough, I'm not hungry. Maybe thirsty, but I'll have a drink soon (not near the computer, lol!). Anyway, I thought the caramel slice would cancel it all out.
Help? I'm confused...
