i agree with joeyboy777, you need to get your total calories up as they are way too low. if your on CKD, you can do this by adding more fats to the diet. dont' believe the myth that "if you wanna lose fat, you gotta not eat fat" b/c that'll throw a wrench in your diet success faster than anything. another myth you need to be careful of is: "if going 500calories below maintenance will help me lose weight, going 1000 calories below maintenance will help me lose it faster" basically the "more is better" mindset... if your calories are too low, your body will go into "starvation" mode... basically it'll hang on to as much "energy" as possible thinking that you are starving. what is the energy source it hangs on to? yup... FAT. and at the expense of your lean mucle mass you'll find it getting even harder and harder to lose FAT. i assume when you say you want to lose weight, thatyou mean you want to lose FAT while retaining as much muscle as possible. muscle is your friend when trying to stay lean.
