Eat food.

At some point in time, in order to maintain the deficit, you have to cease eating food.

Now, do you just wish to be sarcastic or actually be helpful?

Do starvation diets work for you?

I am writing the calories down now; between 1600-1700. As I understand it, one inevitably becomes hungry during a diet? Do you disagree?

If you diet at 1600 calories yeah one might get hungry.  Cutting isn't rocket science - 1600 calories a day = fail.

It was calculated for me. I have a slow metabolism and little muscle mass and my maintenance is around 2200.

How many calories would you eat?

Ok your maintenance is 2200. Eat 2200.

Then create a surplus by doing cardio, weight training etc.
Do cardio 5-6 times a week. Cycle your calories 2 days 2200, 2 days 1800, 1 day 2500 etc
If you are counting calories now then you are in a good position. Eat 6 meals high protein, moderate carb and only healthy fats. Stick with starchy carbs earlier in the day, moving to fibrous carbs later on. You could try Layne Nortons method of 3.5+ hours between meals but that doesn't work for some people(i.e. people can't wait that long etc)

I agree, this may be a convenient way for some people. For other people it won't.

My advise would be to play around with all unessential factors until the most convenient way is found. The unessential factors are: meal timing and frequency, cardio vs. eating less, macro composition (beyond minimal requriements and protein intake).

Added to my post above. My point is not to eat "junk", don't do cardio, only eat one huge meal or eat a lot of sugar etc. My point is to use the unessential factors for convenience.

Any tips?

I have found drinking water to be helpful.  It also helps to take a quick walk around the block if you can.

air-popped popcorn with butter spray
rice-cakes
(drinking water with the two foods above,causes a sensation of fullness)
sugar-free Jello
lots of water
lots of salads/fibrous vegetables
sugar-free gum

Beleive it or not,when cravings come,brush your teeth..........really helps to curb the appetite (old school trick)

Any tips?

eat some more chicken
Protein Shake
A bowl of oatmeal

You shouldnt really hungry really


But Donny's advice is good, same calories added with weight training and cardio should do the job just fine.

I usually try to drink ice tea or water with lemon...... seems to fill me up and get my mind of food.

Sometimes I am not so disciplined though and wind up going to the drive through @ Wendy's!

Wes's suggestion of brushing your teeth is a really good one.   Cool

Pickles and green beans are great help for me when I am starving.  I like green beans because I like to take the time to pick the ends off each one of them individually and then steam them.  It takes a long time, and when I am dieting, the more time I can spend preparing my food, the less time I have to sit there and obsess over it in my head. 

I also like to brew up big pots of flavored teas when I am dieting.  I usually drink some hot tea and refrigerate the rest of it, and I chug a huge glass of it when I am hungry or before I eat.

I never heard the one about brushing teeth before.  That is certainly worth a try.

Info like this is why I still come to GetBig even when the "ownings" get to be too much.   Smiley
