This time of year, I am on a calorie deficit. (eat less than I use). I get cold and cranky. My weakness is almost any *comfort food* or drink.
For example, yesterday I had a protein bar for breakfast and small salad for lunch. Then on the way to the gym I drank a SlimFast. Total of about 700 calories. So far so good. Then I ran for 90 minutes. Chicken and veggies for dinner was fine. Then I was so cold I was shaking. I ate a grapefruit, that didn't help. Then a bowl FULL of peanut butter. Blush

Seriously Dan, are you eating enough protein and total calories? It sounds like you are on about 1000 calories a day, which is not enough for an active person like yourself. Adding some good carbs(whole grains) would help, as would some protein on that salad at lunch. You might want to check with a dietician if you haven't lately.

Yes, I am getting enough protein. Except for the grapefruit everything above contained protein (Even my salad).

No, I'm not getting enough calories. That's the point. Burn more than I eat. The trick is to keep it at a minimal deficit.

You care about my fiber? I care about your fiber too. Big Grin

but one can go too far in the calorie deficit area!
Fiber helps you feel full and helps regulate your blood sugar. When you get cold and shakey, your blood sugar is dropping. I have several diabetics in my family. If they are cold and shakey, they need to eat!
