This doesn't really make me want to go out and start being more active.* Being hungry all the time SUCKS, so I'd end up eating handfuls of almonds (or something) constantly. On a more idiosyncratic bent, hunger/low blood sugar is one of my migraine triggers, so I prefer to avoid it. I don't usually get the icepick-to-optic-nerve kind of migraine anymore (I miss them, and I would prefer them tbh, if only because they respond to medication); I get abdominal migraines, which are 2-4 hours wherein I exhibit all the symptoms of food poisoning. Yeah, fun. Thanks, body.
There has to be a way to be more active, increase strength and stamina, and generally improve one's health without starving in the process. Right? Right?? I don't care too much about losing weight; I'd be happy at my current weight if it were closer to 20% than 30% body fat. On the fitocracy boards, people are always talking about how little they're eating to lose weight, and I'm just going "... I'd be starving constantly. No."
*My current exercise regimen is tai chi class once a week and practicing when I'm not a lazy slug, so not as often as I should, and walking/walk-jogging periodically. Now that the weather isn't 90 degrees and humid, that may happen more often.
