So I've been on my health kick for a few months now, but not yet seeing much in the way of results. The biggest change for me was a much improved exercise routine - going to the gym 3-4 times a week but that alone wasn't enough for me to make any gains. So for the last week or so I've improved my diet. I wanted some advice on if this is enough or do I need to go further?? I don't really get on with calorie counting as it stresses me out so I try to keep an eye on sugar and fat content instead - tell me if I'm wrong!! Here's what I generally eat...
Breakfast: a bowl of porridge with semi skimmed milk, sometimes with a little fruit (Sundays I have an egg or two)
Snacks: couple of coffees throughout the morning, no food.
Lunch: Soup (or a big ass salad) with 2x brown toast and butter.
Snacks: usually a handful of peanuts or if its a gym day its peanut butter and a couple of rice cakes to refuel
Dinner: Beef stew and dumplings with lots of brussels (or something similar...)
I realise the dinner was not the quite up to the standard of my other two meals but I love a good filling dinner like that. Sometimes its better, like a risotto, others its a spag bol or a chilli. Anyway, whats your thoughts folks??
