I don't exercise daily because I read and heard from multiple intense physical trainers that you need to give your body days to rest. I struggle to not exercise daily because I feel so energetic when I do. I feel sluggish and even depressed when I don't. I lost a significant amount of weight three years ago and have maintained that weight loss. I eat more than most men do and I'm a 5 ft even 20-something year old female. As long as you don't become consumed by thoughts of maintaining weight and don't criticize yourself in your head or become overwhelmed when you don't exercise, you'll be fine. I catch myself doing the above-mentioned things and am starting to learn to forgive myself. If you need help, I am here for you.

Everyone's body is different. The exercise/meal plan that works for one person may not work for another person. You might consider talking to your doctor about your concerns, or maybe even seeing a nutritionist. If you spend a lot of time thinking about exercise and worrying about your weight, or if you think you could be at risk to your health, you might consider taking NEDA's online screening: http://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/online-eating-disorder-screening . You can also call or chat online with the NEDA Helpline if you need information about resources in your area: http://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/information-referral-helpline . Good luck! :)

I would get cleared from a doctor prior to engaging in rigorous exercise programs. Also incorporate a meal plan with it too. Just try and have a balance.
