Hi everyone. I've just started the NHS 12 week plan with the intention of trying to lose a bit of weight. I'm 33, 5'10" and 82kg 12st9 (or 78kg 12st3 depending which scales I use). I'm not what you would call 'fat' but I do have some extra weight around the belly that I have always had since a child and I'm determined to try and get down to around 75kg (11st 6). I am staying under 1900cals but not being massively picky about what I eat. I'm obviously not eating chocolate, crisps etc but I had a pork chop on Monday and tonight I had chicken curry (Aldi sauce in jar) which I'm led to believe can be included as 'everything in moderation'.... I'm also exercising 5 days a week, 30 mins running machine @ 8.5km/h on random which suggests im burning 450 kcal, then weights and 100 sit-ups for about 45 mins and finish with 30 min on the cross trainer which suggestes 300kcal burned, just keeping my heart rate between 120-130.
Can anyone help me in determining if this would be effective in achieving my goal? Should I be looking more closely at fat/sugar/carbs etc? I would like to reach my target by May.
Thank you for your help.
