    BioLayne did a good video about metabolic damage from such low-calorie dieting. his angle was more focused on fitness competitors, but his message was/is the same: if you want to be fabulous & stay thin without going out of your mind, you have to heal your metabolism first & only then move on to losing weight. He does this w/his clients by, yes, increasing their calorie intake over the long term (I repeat: long term) and only then starts to whittle them back down to competition levels of body fat. In one case, his client stays only 4 pounds above her stage weight in the off season & eats a boatload of carbs (400-500g per day, I recall) & is happy. My takeaway is that if your metabolism is healthy – or healthier, at least – you no longer need to plummet your caloric intake to concentration camp levels & play diet-roulette with your poor beleaguered metabolism for the weight to come off. But that takes time and patience is that very annoying grown-up attribute which is pretty much MIA these days.

    I know this sounds a tad weird, but I started making jello with strong black coffee. I have it in the morning – I was looking for a way to caffeinate but also cut down somewhat on liquid. I do still have coffee but now not nearly as much as before. My coffee jello plus Fage 2% greek yogurt with either raisins or dried plums mixed in gets my temps in the high 98s which is unbelievable. I’ve found the two to be an incredibly warming morning meal for me.
