Well... after about 2 weeks of dieting, ive lost about 10 pounds... not bad i say... but i fear im eating too little. I take a multivitamin every morning, and am taking Hydroxycut with my diet... but only a Max of 3 a day.

Yesterday, ill i eat all day was a multivitamin, Tuna Sandwich, on whole wheat bread, with no mayo... (I dont like mayo) and tons of water... Reason being, i was buisy all day at work and with friends and just didnt have time.. today, i had a rib eye steak, and about 8 little rice cake things called "crispy Minis" and a miltivitamin. I know this is alot less than i need to be eating, but i just dont get hungry...

Could someone tell me the affects of eating Too little? Im going to eat more tommarow, start with Oatmeal in the morning... have a tuna sandwich for lunch, and steak and salad (no desssing) for dinner... should be alittle better.

I just would like to know the effects of eating too little...

Also.. What does you diet consist of? If someone wouldnt mind showing me what a good diet looks like, id appreciate it. Thanks

BTW: I do cardio 3 times a week and workout 3 times a week... all on different days...

If you eat to little you could lose muslce along with fat. You can get sick easier and its harder to recuperate from a workout on low calories. There are alot of good diets posted in this form, just gotta look a little.

After doing some reading (Articles) it says that if i dont eat for extended periods of time my body goes into "Starvation" mode and stores energy as fat... so i need to eat alot of little meals...

So.. Im thinking ill have 5 small meals throughout the day...

Like (Im just taking a stab at this... bear with me)

Morning (8:30)
MultiVitamin, Hydroxycut, 1 Packet of oatmeal, an apple or orange.
8 oz. of 2% Milk. Water

Mid- Morning (10:30)
Steak, Chicken Breast or Tuna Sandwich on WW bread. Protien Shake.

Lunch (12:30)
Hydroxycut, Tuna Sandwhich, apple or orange

Mid Afternoon (3:00)
Chicken Breast, Veggies, Fruit,

Dinner (5:30)
Hydroxycut, Steak,Tuna, Or Chicken, 5 or 6 Mini rice cakes, 8 Oz. 2% Milk

What do you think? any opinions helpful... thanks alot

and maybe move your 3rd hydroxy in with lunch? might mess with your sleep if you take it anywhere near time to sleep, or maybe its no big deal since its only half a serving

if you go to 6 per day though, might be a good idea to move the last one to lunchtime

I used to take h-cut before I slept and I slept like a baby.
