Calorie Deficit and yet I’m not Hungry

Lose Weight by Counting Calories

Calorie Deficit yet not Hungry

From the few different calculations I’ve tried, my calorie intake should be between 2500-2700 calories. Last time I lost weight, I stayed around a 500 calorie deficit which I struggled with, partially thanks to binge eating disorder, but over time made it work.

Fast forward to a couple months ago, after a long year I had gained around 50 more pounds, and hit 290 at one point. I eventually found the will to try and lose weight again. Again, struggling at first with binging more than anything. Skip to now, I have managed to control the binging quite well. Since getting to this point though, I have been eating surprisingly little.

By little, I am saying around 1200 calories at least to 1500 calories at most. But, I’m not hungry the majority of the time. It is the first time in my life that I am not dominated by hunger and my relationship with food. I am also a creature of habit and heavily repeat the same foods.

A typical day the past two weeks has been two eggs cooked with 1/2 a tablespoon of butter and a couple turkey sausage links, which should be around 280 calories.

For lunch I’ve been having a 6 inch ham and cheese sub with lettuce/olives on plain Italian from subway, which according to their ingredients listing adds up to 300 calories. And for dinner, I’ve been having…the same thing but a foot long. So, around 600 calories.

I don’t know *why* I have been eating the same thing, but it is something I do enjoy eating. As for drinks, I mainly drink sparkling water and gatorade zero- Also what I like, not a change from the norm. So all in all, I have been ranging close to 1200, sometimes 1500 with the occasional different lunch or dinner.

I do know this is *very* low for my weight. I know 1500-1700 is significantly low too and that it would be ideal trying to maintain 2000-2200 a day for the usual steady pace.

But the strange thing, to me, is I am not going hungry. I don’t feel (physically, I am aware mentally.) like I’m eating too little. I don’t have cravings that I am suppressing.

I do have an appointment with my doctor coming up where I will bring it up, just to be on the safe side.

Thanks for reading!
