How is my diet?

I have cutted all junk food in my diet. I don't eat anything processed or full of empty calories. I don't eat anything sweet. With the exception of canned/organic fruits. I have been making all my meals. I eat thoroughly and slowly. I try to make all my meals as long as they can be to make myself feel more full. I have been very successful (I have noticed that even when you are very hungry, eating your food thoroughly and slowly makes yourself feel more full. This prevents overeating extra calories). My diet has been very successful. I have been doing this diet for about a month and a half. Also, I have been taking multivitamins for the nutrition my body needs. Also, recentIy I have just started this week taking oil supplements. I have also been exercising daily for at least an hour. I have lost a total weught of 15-20 pounds. I was at the very beginning stages of obese, now I am normal average weight. But not underweight. This whole week recently, I have been feeling faint and dizzy. I just started school and have been overwhelmed by hours of homework + studying. When I get home from school, I do chores for an hour. After I exercise at home for an hour. I start my homework after exercise. When I feel tired of homework, I go to my local gym and exercise for another hour. I have this routine 4-5 days a week. This has shorten my hours of sleep. For the previous month, I slept at 10:00pm everday and woke up at 6:00am sharp everyday (This was before school started). I was very happy and energetic when I did. I was always positive. However, this week when I started school, my sleep schedule is ruined and I sleep an average of about 5-6 hours a night. I'm not grumpy or negative or anything. But I was very happy the previous month with my sleep schedule. During my weekends, I still don't "sleep in." However, I go sleep early and wake up early. I get at least 8 hours of sleep in a day during my week off of school. In the total 4 years, I have lost a total weight of 40 pounds. How am I doing?

Weight loss wise fantastic! Congrats!!! :D But you need to sleep more. Maybe try to maintain weight now by running (cardio) longer distances and other maintain exercises that still burns calories (still exercise an hour a day) so that you don't gain weight. Idk what time you wake up in the morning (maybe 5 or so???) if so, then I think that you should go to bed at about 9 so you can get that 8 hours of sleep you need. But besides that congrats and good luck!!!

You're doing great; however, GAINING 40 pounds of muscle weight in a 4 year period is twice as difficult, for most people, at least.

I know she did, I was just comparing the difficulty of losing 40 lbs verses GAINING 40 lbs - get it?!? (I suggest the site owner invest in a more intelligent Chatterbot program).

Had I not posted an answer and triggered the Chatterbot responses, there would probably be no answer for this question yet. Pathetic Chatterbot sites, I'm not fooled but this fake garbage at all.

....Sorry I didn't look at the user name.... I usually find this kind of question from a girl and I'm really sorry for the misunderstanding. But congrats on the weight loss :D And no, there are no "chatterbots" on this website, I can tell you first hand that I am indeed a human being just like yourself and just about everyone else who uses this website.

Sounds great. Check with your doc about the vitamins and oil supplements. If you are eating healthy like you say,you shouldn't need to supplement. Get more sleep(at least 8 hrs per day), and make sure you get enough protein. Iron helps prevent anemia as well

If you don't eat "anything sweet", maybe you are having symptoms of low blood sugar.
