This is so confusing. I’m 5 feet tall and 120 pounds (age 42). Everytime I calcuate my TDEE with light activity (I work out 3 times a week and stay active on the weekends just doing stuff) I come up with 1317. That’s pretty low. And if I try to make a calorie deficit of 20 percent, that leaves me with only eating barely 1,000 calories a day. That’s hardly eating. And I keep hearing everywhere not to eat less than your TDEE to lose weight. I’m totally baffled. Here’s my situation. I was eating 1200 calories a day and lost 40 pounds total. I did most of my exercise through 40 minutes to 1 hour on an exercise bike 4-5 days a week. I know how to keep a diary and track everything I eat (and I eat healthy…not junk). I am now trying to lose the last 10 pounds to get me to the 110 range. I have not been able to do it at all over the past year. The biking for 30 minutes 3-4 days a week wasn’t working (my schedule too busy to do more than that now). I’ve been doing HIIT for 25-30 minutes the last 2 months…no weight loss either. I’ve checked and rechecked diet. I’ve tried eating more than 1200 after learning to not eat lower than my TDEE. No response. It’s been a year of this battle. I’m totally confused and eating 1000 calories a day doesn’t seem healthy at all. Help!!!
Hoodia has been around for a while and remains a bestselling weight loss product. A plant native to South Africa, hoodia has for many years been used by tribes there to suppress their appetites during long hunts. You’ll find that many conflicting reports on the effectiveness of hoodia for weight loss exist. One problem is that it’s sold by many companies, and you can’t always be sure you’re getting the real thing. Hoodia weight loss supplements are sold in capsule and tea form. It’s best that you go with a hoodia weight loss product that’s made by a reputable company so you don’t end up wasting your money on a weight loss product that doesn’t work. If you use authentic hoodia, you can count on losing weight through the suppression of your appetite.
