So in short, I really don't work well with calorie counting. So instead I am trying to make "eating guidelines" or an "eating routine". Here is what I'm thinking of doing. Does it sound sensible?
Breakfast 07:30 - 40-50g wholegrain cereal with milk or porridge made with 40-50g oats
Lunch 12:30 - Wholegrain starch (i.e. a bagel, pitta, 2 slices toast) with salad or fruit
Dinner 18:00 - Split my plate into 1/2 veg, 1/4 lean protein, 1/4 starchy foods.
This is something I washoping to stick to on week days. I would vary it more at weekends so I don't get bored (perhaps soup).
I'm 250lb so I do have plenty to lose!
