Epicurious Louisville

Louisville Kentucky is a treasure trove of amazing eats. I blog about them here. Y'all pull up a chair and sit awhile.

Anonymous asked: Hey, saw your post about not losing any more weight. It's super frustrating, but one thing I've noticed that really helps is a 1-2 week reverse diet- eat at maintenance or even above for a couple of weeks and cut down on your workout routine. Then when you start dieting and exercising again, it works as well as it did when you started because, to your body, you have restarted. Hope this helps :)

Thank you! I am kind of terrified to refeed. My main plan  now is to ramp up my workouts (my last hot yoga class was today, so now it’s time for all the cardio and lifting!). I know it’s disordered as can be, but if I see the scale go up I get into this blind, terrified panic. Like I’m going to gain back 115 lbs in the next week or something.
