Is it possible to still eat normal?

I am doing the Special K diet and have been trying to keep my calories down around 1000 per day. Today I am dying. I dont know why but I am starving. I have had my cereal and fruit for breakfast and lunch and have had a snack of the Quaker Mini Delights and then broke down and had a Healthy Choice tv dinner. I am at 800 calories for the day and its only 6:10pm. My question is can you eat normal meals and workout and still lose weight? I have 125 to lose. Do you have to feel hungry to lose weight?

Of course you can eat normal meals, workout and lose weight! And no you don't have to be hungry. Have you spoken with a doctor or nutritionist? 125lbs is a lot to try to lose on your own, and cutting back to 1000 calories a day is not the best or most effective way to go about it.

Essentially, you feel like you're starving because you are starving yourself. Talk to a doctor, or at least educate yourself about nutrition a bit. There are really great books on the market, and tons of information online.

I wish you tons of luck, and good for you for at least trying to lose the weight. It's a huge step to take, but so worth it!

So what is normal caloric intake? I thought since I was 267 I had some to spare so to speak.

I'm appalled at what you are doing to yourself

Honey, get some food in you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only way to lose weight permanently is exercise and to eat correct portions of nourishing food. You have had enough carbohydrates, get some olive oil, protein, and veggies in you right away.

And before you do anything else with that crazy diet of yours, get some nutrition knowledge. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Before you kill yourself or permanently damage your internal organs.

Talk to your doctor or a nutritionist, learn your portion sizes, learn to pick lean proteins and healthy fats. Cram in the vegetables, stirfrying them in olive oil always taste good.

I had 65 pounds to lose, and I have lost 30 of them. I was just gone on over a month of trips and still lost weight even though my goal was only to maintain. I am doing by eating real food, no shakes, bars, dinners, pills. I am almost 44 and going into menopause, and many health and injury issues and a very low metabolism. If I can do it in a healty fashion, so can you.

No one can survive on 1000 calories of carbohydrates daily. Please stop and educate yourself. Please, because you are worth treating well.

Nobody should be eating below 1200 calories. Trust me. You'll lose more weight when you give your body the amount of calories it actually needs to function properly. Your only eating carbs and perhaps minimal amounts of protein. which is not good - a good diet should be 40% carbs, 40% protein and 20% fat. When you eat that small of calories a day you trick your body to thinking that its in starvation mode so with that your body holds on to your body fat. If you weight yourself in the scale you maybe losing "weight" but that weight could just be water or muscle not necessarily body fat. You need your muscle since muscle is very calorie expensive and takes alot to maintain so it boosts your metabolism. Get a good diet and you add excercise to it and you double your chances of losing body fat not weight.
