Any chance you were feeling lethargic and dizzy because you didn’t eat enough?
This blogger who writes a blog called “Happiness Awaits” had her resting metabolic rate tested and it turned out that she had been eating so few calories that her body had entered that dreaded starvation mode we always hear about, where it hangs onto weight because it thinks we are starving.
She’d been worried about gaining weight, so she exercised religiously and watched what she ate, but then the doctor informed her she was eating too little and it was making her feel sick all the time, and probably keeping a few extra pounds on her frame.
She increased her calories to the amount needed to maintain her weight (or maybe lose a couple pounds) and she LOST WEIGHT immediately. I could not get over this.
The point is, maybe you weren’t feeling well because the body doesn’t function well on less than 1000 calories a day? Just a possibility…

so i love hummus, and i just got this awesome hummus from wegs that has olive oil and pine nuts and stuff in it, and im eating it with carrots and celery its sooooo yummy, however it makes me wish that i had turkey so that i could make this an actual meal… i need a way to round this out before i go run errands and work out. any ideas?
Sometimes I’ll just do hummus on toast or on a wrap by itself! It’s also great with crackers or a little cheese. YUM! Enjoy. :)
