I'm desperate to lose weight. I'm a 26 year old male, I weight about 18.5 stone and I'm about 6 foot tall. I'm fairly active, I play football at least twice a week (although for one game I am the goalie, so less running) and I've just bought an exercise bike and I'm cycling at least 5k a day, minimum. I'm not afraid of the hard work, I've recently had a very big reason to lose weight, it's my diet that concerns me. It used to be terrible, absolutely terrible. Sweets, fizzy juice, takeaways etc all the things I shouldn't be eating. I've cut all that out now, but even then - I can't eat fruit or veg. They literally make me ill. I can eat potatoes and even carrots if they are grated into a soup or something, but that's genuinely all I can eat from those food groups.
I want my diet to improve, vastly, hoping to get the 5 a day etc but as I said, can't eat fruit and veg. I would also like to stay away from fresh oj etc due to the sugar.
Anyone got some advice on how to plan healthy meals that don't involve fruit or veg? I'd really appreciate any insight.
