View CECILY55's food & exercise for this day
Lose weight and get in shape?!?!? Does this sound the least bit familiar? I certainly need to do something: weight is up to ~210 or thereabouts. I started the slow carb diet back in January, did OK for about 10 days or so and then totally gave it up. I'm sure there was a reason, but I don't remember what it was. I also quit exercising and say on my butt and pouted.
Well..... I am now an unemployed student -- yesterday was my last day at work. I have time and less stress, so I can devote some hours to getting my weight, my life, and my house under control.
I had a sandwich for breakfast this morning, but I am going to start this diet now. I plan to give this a 12 week trial -- which will take me through summer and summer school.
My diet plan is as follows:
Rules for 6 days per week:
>>Eat within 30 minutes of getting up
>>No "white" foods or foods that could be white -- no pasta, bread, potatoes, rice; cauliflower and white beans are OK
>>No dairy except cream (limited) and cottage cheese
>>Drink lots of water
>>Eat 3-4 times/day, at least 20 g protein per meal, legumes 3/4 meals (limit garbanzos)
>>Measure, record, track some metric
Rules for 7th day each week:
There are no rules. I think this will be Sunday, but that may be subject to change.
