I am new to dieting. I've always eaten nutritiously and rarely do I overeat, and have maintained my ideal weight that way (along with some light weight lifting and 1 mile walks 2 or 3 times a week)
But lo and behold, after hitting the age of 42, that isn't enough any more.
I gained 10 pounds in the past 2 years,
now I'm 44, and I've been trying to cut my calories a little,
but it's so hard because I start to lose energy and strength. Has anyone had this experience and what am I doing wrong?
I'm not being drastic with my calorie cutting, I'm not skipping meals, just trying to eat say, a small bowl of cereal instead of a large one, and a smaller helping of casserole at dinnertime. but then between meals I get tired and have no strength or energy. I try to have a little snack like carrot sticks, maybe yogurt or something, but it only makes me more hungry....
