hello and thank you for aksing HCM,

I understand your concern. It is not good to stop eating because it slows down your metabolism, which eventually leads to easier weight gain. My suggestion is to count calories. Women need 2000 and men 2500 calories per day. Try to find on the internet a calorie food table and count your food intake every day. The best would be to seperate the calories in five meals a day.

I hope this answer was helpful to you.
