I figured out, according to my food logging, my carbs were out of control between 130g - 160g per day, so I have been cutting that down drastically, but having a hard time reaching 1200 calories a day that way, also my fat intake which was about 20gs avg has significantly raised trying to cut my carbs.
Please help me, I need advice! I still have another 50 lbs to loose!
Have you reduced your calories since you've dropped 50lbs?
Fat is a metabolically active tissue, so with less fat comes the neeed for less calories. Some suggest a 50 calories reduction for every 10lbs lost.
