    [–] Banana bread at 200 cal a slice... not the lightest, but a great breakfast! dimplezcz 7 points ago in 1200isplenty

    I'd only use two bananas, ditch the chia seeds, (saves ~160 calories) and maybe replace one of the cups of oatflakes with a scoop of protein powder and applesauce (saves ~245 calories, depending on your protein powder; mine is 90 calories per scoop/25g).

    Combined it would save about 50 calories per slice. I'd inevitably add those 50 saved calories right back by adding a tablespoon of yogurt butter on top 😍

    When I do lift, I do three days a week (Tuesday/Thursday/Friday), but since I am walking around a huge and hilly campus all day, I am exhausted and starving by the time I get home on days I lift but I'm okay on days that I don't. I think it's more of a mental thing doing a week on/week off type ishπŸ˜…

    I basically did what you plan to do: ate at maintenance from December until now because it's just exhausting being at a ~500 calorie deficit for months. I think I'm ready to lose the last 7 lbs now...gotta get that summer bod ready! Good luck to you!

    That's awful that your parents won't listen. Mine buy snacks and nothing but snacks so I know when I'm going home I'll need to bring my own food. If you can afford it, maybe you can have a stash of healthy food and snacks that you keep in your room so you won't be tempted to eat the unhealthy stuff?

    The "out of sight, out of mind" mindset really helps prevent me from binging on junk. I used to have the GrubHub app so I could get food delivered if I was feeling lazy and craved junk, but I deleted it so I wouldn't be tempted to even look through it. I know if I buy chips or cookies I can't just have one serving and be done, so I don't buy them at all. It sounds shittyβ€”but only having food that requires prepping and/or planning is a great way to curb the cravings.

    I took a break from weightlifting this week (and drinking this weekend), and this morning I'm at my lowest weight (142.4) since I started dieting! I had been maintaining 145 since Thanksgiving basically and was about to just say "fuck it, this is my set point". But I realized that heavy weightlifting might have been the problem because I would basically eat at maintenance instead of a deficit. I've been at a decent deficit this week and the scale finally reflects that!

    Hopefully by the end of my cut (GW is 135) I will have some muscles to show off, too πŸ™ƒ I'm considering doing one week on, one week off of lifting so I don't lose too much muscle while cutting. We shall see!

    I think that's what the problem now is: I've been maintaining this weight since November, which is around when I started seriously lifting. I do go over 1300 calories quite a bit, so I think if I stop lifting temporarily then I won't be as ravenous at the end of the day. I've made decent gains while still at a deficit according to my tape measurements, but I still need to cut fat.

    I lost my original progress picture, but on the left is me around May of last year, and on the right (NSFW) is me now! I still have about 10 more pounds to lose, and then I plan on going back to my 531 program so I can actually make decent gains.

    Now if only this 3-month long plateau would gtfo so I can go up to maintenance that would be great πŸ™ƒ

    [–] Recipe Thursday dimplezcz 3 points ago in fatlogic

    Skinnytaste's recipe has the exact same amount of calories but with only 4 ingredients! Everyone on r/1200isplenty has been rightfully obsessing over them for the past week or so. I made some the other week and they were awesome!

    [–] Arla protein pots - delicious and filling! dimplezcz 12 points ago in 1200isplenty

    I was gonna say holy shit is this even yogurt if it expires in August but then I realized you're in the UK

    [–] Me too thanks dimplezcz 14 points ago in 1200isplenty

    Clockwise from the top: cinnamon sugar, sesame, rosemary & garlic, and asiago. I had the asiago one with my dinner and it was delicious! I tweaked some things because I only had Kroger Brand Carbmaster plain yogurt, so to thicken it up I added a scoop of MyProtein unflavored whey isolate. Strangely enough it still ended up being exactly 152 calories...
