So I felt a little cruddy about myself, which is why I went running today. Running to Roosevelt Beach and back is one of my favorite things about visiting (okay, living) in Oyster Bay.
|This is the nifty 5 mile loop I like to run.|
If you rapidly lower the amount of calories you are consuming, and you are not obese, your body will freak out because it thinks it is being starved to death. Instead of losing weight, your body will start storing calories like a bear about to go into hibernation. Be sensible, although every so often I like to go way below my calorie allowance. It tends to wake me up a little.
Drink a lot of water. You will feel fuller, and most "hunger pains" are actually dehydration.
