Day 402: Eating Safe

February Sprint continues. Still feeling good — uncomfortable at a few points during the day, but we unpacked that yesterday.

I was just checking in on minimal safe calories per day, though. I want to get the weight loss stuff back on track, but I also don’t want my kidneys to explode or something. So while I’ve had a run of a few days at about 1,000 calories per day, that’s pretty much just a ramp in, and I need to start thinking about eating a bit more on the regular.

Of course, the Internet being the Internet, it’s 99% horseshit out there. Fortunately, if you know how to do site-restricted searches, you can go right to the source and search, like, Health Canada for estimated calorie requirements. Is it perfect? Probably not, but it’s at least based on something, which is more than I can say, for, like, WebMD or whatever.

So I think coming in at about 75% of my “maintenance” intake, which comes out to about 1600 calories a day for food.

Let’s get this straight: I do not enjoy this kind of food tracking. It’s hard for me to lean into. I just find it fiddly and annoying. But it’s the February Sprint, and I can get behind a few weeks of aggressive food tracking to drop some pounds… healthily.
