1 Bottle of Water
1 Bottle of Water
1 1/2 Servings of Meat
1 1/2 Servings of Vegetables
Unsweetend Tea W/ equal
just any suggestions will help thx
Looks like you're not eating enough, even if you want to lose weight. Add an egg to breakfast, a chicken salad to lunch, and have snacks of fruit, veggies, and nuts throughout the day. If you try to eat on that menu you'll starve and then cheat. Read some stuff by John Berardi.
im doing good so far ive been drinking water to make me not hungry...but i will probably get more fruit to make it not so bad
Still need more protein. Maybe get some unsalted, unsweeted nuts like almonds, and an egg at breakfast.
ok, thanks for the advice
Agreed. You need to be eating more. Do you track your calories?
not really.....i probably get like 1500 a day
Sounds like your just starving yourself and the second you start eating normal again you'll gain it all back.
well i changed my diet a little
1 Banana (any fruit I have really, just what I have right now)
1 Piece of toast
1 Bottle of water
Snack: (eat this either before work or after work)
1 99cent bag of pork skins
1 Piece of fruit
2 Servings of meat
2 different vegetables (1 1/2 serving of each)
Unsweetend tea with equal
I tried this yesterday and I felt a lot better and energetic.
More protein. I had more protein this morning then you have in your whole day.
why so much protein? i mean come on should I buy some whey protein?
Yeah for sure, two scoops for that is about 50 grams of protein. The shake is just like normal food.
i mean why? im trying to lose weight.
I would go to fitday.com and track all of your calories. You'll see you still aren't taking enough in.
well according to fitday.com
here is what I get:
grams cals %total
Fat: 54 489 27%
Sat: 15 132 7%
Poly: 12 112 6%
Mono: 21 192 11%
Carbs: 185 638 35%
Fiber: 25 0 0%
Protein: 172 686 38%
Alcohol: 0 0 0%
Protein is essential for keeping you healthy and preventing muscle degradation when you lose weight. Carbs and fats are just for energy. For lunch, get a tub of 100% peanuts peanut butter and eat it with your banana.
