View Full Version : need some help
ok well i just want to know what kind of exercise people do and how much a day?
how much a week? and
what do you at or have for breakfast?
do you snack if so what do you eat?
please help me get started losing weight!!!
I have just made my weight loss - 30kgs down from final pregnancy weight. To be fair, I probably gained 17kgs while pregnant and that came off quite easily - it was getting back down to my few years ago level that was hard.
OK - I am also a ceoliac (allergic to gluten) so I do have some restrictions
Breakfast - toast with sardines or tomato and low-fat cheese (2 slices - no butter, only WW spread or nothing) OR 2 boiled eggs OR plain omlette (2 eggs, 1 egg white). Cup of green tea, water.
Snack. apple and decaf, skinny flat white
Lunch: chicken breast (half) sliced into lettuce, avacado, tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, with vinegar. Variation could be salmon and salad. Sometimes small sushi as a difference. water
snack - fruit or raw carrot or low fat cheese (small serve)
dinner: meat and veges. Cut back on rice, potatoes and pasta. Still eat them but small amounts.
Occassional treat - yes of course. low-fat icecream, small amount of high quality chocolte and yes, still the odd serve of hot chips or Indian/chinese/thia takeaway. And yes, still drink alcohol
three weight classes (pump, bar calss) a week at gym. try and do at least 2 other sessions of uphill treadmill (40 mins) as well. walk as much as possible
I do 3-4 fitness classes a week at the gym - pump, step, combat and sometimes balance. I go whenever DH is home from work in time to look after DD in the evenings, and I go Saturday and Sunday mornings. I also do a mums & bubs swimming class once a week where we play with the babies for the first 30 mins, then they get looked after while the mums do 45 mins of water aerobics. And I tell you what - working in the water is hard work!
B/fast is Special K, low fat milk and I usually put a bit of All Bran Tropical on top for fibre. Or toast and marmalade and a milo.
Lunch is mountain bread, chicken and salad or last night's leftover pasta. If there's no food in the house it might just be a cheese sandwich on wholemeal.
Dinner is curry and rice, pasta or meat and veg. I just watch my portion size and make sure it's not as big as DH's.
Snacks would be yoghurt, fruit, slice of low fat cheese or rice crackers.
I guess the key for me is to have lots of healthy food in the cupboards. I try not to buy chips etc because I just know I will eat the lot.
Also at the start of the week I try to buy all fresh salad and have it ready to go eg I grate a couple of carrots and fresh beetroot, some cheese and keep in containers in the fridge so that it's easy to throw a healthy lunch together.
Drink lots of water, maybe even flavoured with some low-joule cordial.
Good luck! Start today.
