On the trip I was reading about a competitive swimmer in his forties who was eating right and training 4+ hours a day and still gaining weight. I’m not training that hard, but I’ve been eating <1500 cals a day for over a year and working out 30-90 minutes 6 days a week and I haven’t lost an ounce. Clearly my metabolism is not working like most people’s (can I be the only person who trained for and ran the NYC marathon and actually gained weight in the process?)
Going to experiment with low carb vegetarian to see if that can make a difference.
It’s definitely going to be a challenge since I can only eat so many eggs and haven’t bought milk or butter in years. It looks like eggs, tempeh, tofu, and beans are going to be in my future A LOT
