Here's the thing, though. That's my average diet each day. According to some articles I read online, I should be burning around 2,000 calories per day basically just from existing. Honestly, a lot of days, I don't think I even end up hitting that. And that's not even taking exercising into account.
And yet I'm not losing weight. Granted, I'm not gaining any either, but I'm honestly kind of surprised I don't look like more of an anorexic than I do. :/
Just wondering what you guys think about this. I would like to slim down a bit, and I'm going to use the sticky for that, but I figured I'd see if /fit/ could make sense of any of this for me.
Pic mostly unrelated.
