Depends on many things like how much activity you do per day, how you metabolize....Originally Posted by Hawx
What if i eat below 1500calories but mostly of eg chocolate (saturated fat), could i still lose fat or only muscles?
Yea, that probably won't work. There have been times when I've eaten so much chocolate I felt like throwing up. (gross I know) That didn't keep me from doing the same thing later though. If that sort of strategy actually worked there would be a lot less addicts in the world.Originally Posted by Hawx
The reason i ask this is because i used to have a choclate addiction especially to snickers bars but have been off of it for 4 weeks now but the craving just wont go away. So im thinking of eating nothing but snickers bars for 2 days and nothing else so i migh find it to get disgusted and the memory of that will remain.
I agree with this. Either eat something else or just replace the behavior with something else entirely. It doesn't really matter what it is. Just replace that negative behavior with something else. Changing deeply ingrained habits isn't easy, (In fact you can expect it to be quite difficult.) but it's doable if you make enough of an effort.You have to overcome the urges. If you do a two-day binge, you just admit defeat to yourself. Just find a food to replace Snickers. When you crave chocolate, eat a certain food instead. Reprogram your taste buds.
I make something like this pretty regularly except I don't use that much liquid. Mine comes out more like ice cream, but I think I'll try it this way too.Originally Posted by Mrs. T
Smoothies are a regular breakfast and lunch for me. Here's a chocolate one for you that will give you actual nutrients and not just empty calories.
2 medium, sliced frozen bananas
1 cup non-dairy milk (I use soy or almond)
1 T. Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder OR 2 T. regular cocoa powder
1 t. agave nectar (optional)
1 T. ground flax seed (optional)
Whiz this all in your blender. I actually do it in a food processor because I don't have a blender right now. It tastes just like a chocolate milkshake.
