I booked a session with the Personal Trainer at the gym today and boy did she work me hard. I thought I was reasonably fit until then!
I discussed with her I really need to lose some weight as my BMI is 32! I have been eating fruit for breakfast with a yogurt and snacking on fruit between meals. She informed me all this fruit gives me a sugar rush and my body will store those extra sugars as fat - I thought I was eating healthy
She has advised me to eat a high protein diet and to add in nuts and seeds to my meals and as snacks in between meals. These are foods I have never eaten. She also advised me to try not to eat bread but have salads instead.
I really don't mind eating salads but can't imagine them for lunch every day especially in winter.
Can anyone offer me any ideas on high protein meals and how to use nuts and seeds in my diet. I am really hoping this might work for me in the long term as I have lost weight on diets before but can't maintain it. I would prefer to make changes I can stick to. Any help/advice would be most appreciated, thanks in advance
