I am new here found the site after eating healthily for the last week and totally disheartened that I had actually put weight on!!
Decided to search on the internet for an idea of diets to look at to see if I could work out where I had gone wrong (Not enough fibre in what I was eating I think) and found the Top Diets Review, which made great reading. Checked the BMI and ouch - Obese.
I then downloaded week one to have a look at and liked what I saw so downloaded the whole 12 week plan and then I went on to the 'Get fit with Strength and Flex' and completed the first workout.
We were having friends round last night so I decided to let myself have my last blast and eat / drink what I wanted. To my surprise when I logged it this morning I was still within the range (and not past the middle of the range) of Calories that the BMI calculator advised. Therefore if I can do that when not trying this is definitely the plan for me.
I plan on being good today and weighing in tomorrow morning before I head to work.
Things I know I will have to work hard to do to start with
- Trying to eat breakfast before I leave for work. - Today I will be making the Grab & Go Breakfast bar, so I have it ready for the week for any day I am running late and don't have time to do my eggs on toast etc.
- Make the pack lunch the night before or at least 3/4 of it and put in the fridge
I was drinking far too much coffee and for the last two weeks I have limited it to two mugs in the morning max before I go to work and then hot water either plain or with a squirt of lemon juice at work.
Thanks for reading if you got this far
Ooo forgot to add - I have stopped smoking 86 days ago - so now the focus is on the weight and fitness
