So I eat well, cook most from scratch, I go to the gym at least 5 times a week with a mix of cardio and weight training. I really struggling with my weight and always have done. I recently invested in a PT to help me at the gym in the hopes this may kick start something. I have been in a good routine for around 4-5 weeks now and been feeling quite good and positive. I have not weighted myself as I am weight lifting and this will only make my weight go up and have been told by my PT this will only dishearten me. So all good until this morning! I put on a pair of trousers this morning which I have not worn for a few months and they are so tight I could not wear them. What am I doing wrong! I have reduced my carb intake right down as recommended by m PT, upped my protein and reduce portion size.
Example of my food:
Breakfast - Diet protein shake
Snack - 0% fat Greek yogurt & Grapefruit
Lunch - Brown rice, chicken breast, salad, low fat salad cream
Snack - Carrot Stick & boiled egg
Dinner - Salmon fillet with spinach, new pots and salad
Snack - 10 almonds & yogurt
I do not drink fizzy drinks, i am on 2 coffees in the morning and the rest of the day water, i drink out of a hydr8mate bottle so i know i am getting plenty of fluids in. the odd occasion i'll have a green tea throughout the day.
Any advice or if you are in a similar situation just so i know i an not the only one!
