I am 5'8" and I weight 140. I"m a size 4. I can't complain about anything publicly to friends/co workers because they make fun of "the problems I have." Well, my only concern is that I'm not a foodie. I eat to live. I don't live to eat, so the drive to eat a massive amount of food really doesn't happen and when I do, it is fairly healthy with a lot of veggie and fruit servings. I do have a sweet tooth, but the problem I'm having is it seems that I"m not eating enough calories per day to maintain my weight. When I do eat enough per my (my fitness pal) app, it is filled with fattening foods or carbs. I just need some guidance on what I should adjust (hence this site) but I can't possibly be the only one that at my age (35) has a good metabolism, in shape, can run 8-10 miles twice a week, but worry that I"m not eating enough food to maintain my weight as opposed to lose weight. I have cut down on the running to 4-6 miles as a result because i was burning 1K calories in each run, but there has to be a better balance out there. HELP!
Yeah, I have definitely been drinking olive oil these days, about 5 tablespoons. Avocados always go bad before I can complete an entire one, but I will try it out again too. Thanks so much.
I use Gatorade every now and then when I"m preparing to run outside in the summer. I have the ability to run around 8-9 miles twice a week. I say have the ability, because i definitely notice a significant loss in energy around mile 9, I know my body is capable of running farther, but I don't have the physical energy to do so.
Gatorade (beverage and chews) has helped with that, along with other food, drink items. Outside of it being banned in over 100 countries, which is quite possible, I usually choose the ones with fewer calories and fewer grams of sugar to kind of combat that. The regular ones have a lot of sugar in them. I know that my body needs a bit more to keep me going through the long runs that I crazily commit to in the summer months and water doesn't seem to do the trick as well during the work out. Just a thought.
