    Default This is what I ate today...

    I'd like to lose around 10-15kg's. Yesterday I started my healthy eating plan and I was wondering if anyone could comment on my progress and advise as o whether or not I'm likely to lose a good amount of weight (2kg's this week would be nice ).

    Breakfast: Special K cereal with sliced banana and raspberries, light milk.

    Lunch: 1 slice multigrain toast with a few mushrooms, tomato, avocado and a boiled egg.

    Dinner: 2 steamed dim sims, four fish fingers.

    Snacks.. I had 4 rice/corn cakes topped with cottage cheese, lettuce, cucumber and tomato.

    And about 15-20 Malteasers .... I figure denying myself a treat would lead to bingeing... and they're so little and addictive so easy to gorge on, lol.
    But yeah, I'm not normally a big chocolate person and reckon I wont eat any other sweets for the next fortnight.

    So about my diet... good for weightloss? I've also cut out alcohol and am only drinking very low cal soda or water.

    I walked for over an hour today as well, left the car at home and put bubs in the pram and walked to the shops.

    Lose the cereal and try for a cooked breakfast of eggs in some form; you'll eat less over the course of the day. Head to the Sweet Poison Facebook page for a total health solution

    I'd probably opt for more nutritious dinners too.. salad or steamed veges for a start. I can't really see the benefit in dim sims and fish fingers, sorry op.

    I think your snacks are too big and your dinner needs to be better than that.

    Definitely lose the dim sims and fish fingers. Try a salad with grilled fish maybe. Maltesers or choc treat once a week is ok I think.

    I reckon you did awesome! Expecially leaving the car and walking!
    I can't comment on your dinner (I know nothing of Asian foods).
    I think you could do with more fruit and vegetables there, I love milk shakes in the morning as they fill me up so well. And salads or veggie soups are always guilt free foods I love.
    Oh and I you have an iPhone myfitnesspall app is really great expecially for getting to know which foods are good/bad, I think you can also use it online but I'm not sure.

    Hi Plexus, good on you for making a plan. My tips are pretty similar to marepoppin's. Protein is what keeps insulin levels stable, and therefore eating some at every meal will ensure you don't get those insulin spikes and crashes, leading to less reaching for sugary carbs.

    Sometimes, I make myself a big breakfast frittata, with veggies so I can have that over a few days with some toast in the mornings. Other times, I have smoked salmon on toast with a bit if cream cheese etc.

    Lunches and dinners tend to be salads, soups, meats, fish & veggies.

    My gp told me to eat this way when she found my insulin levels were a bit raised. I do this about 80% of the time and it has really helped with my energy levels, and my weight is pretty stable. Gp also recommended the paleo and bodytrim ways of eating for optimum health. Hope this helps!

    Great start.

    Tomorrow I would aim to eat
    protein at every meal,
    2 fruits - frozen green grapes are great for hot day snacks or a mango smoothie/or purred with a little juice and frozen for a sorbet
    5 veg - a salad/soup/steamed or spray oil roasted veg
    limit cereals and breads to 2 serves.
    Drink, drink, drink, yes pretend your a fish
    and keep up with your exercise...
    You will lose it in no time.

    Yeah I agree that the dinner I ate last night was crap, lol. It was unplanned and was what I was cooking for DS and his friend sleeping over so I just served myself a small portion of that as I couldn't be bothered cooking myself another meal..
    Today for dinner I'm planning on having mixed steamed vegies.

    For breakfast today I ditched the cereal and had:

    2 slices multi grain toast with avocado, vegemite and 2 boiled eggs. (I woke up starving and wanted a filling, healthy meal that should sustain me for most of the day.)

    I have strawberries for a snack.

    Eat smaller portions more often to keep your metabolism working.

    Drink 40ml of water for each kg you weigh. So if you weigh 100kg, you need to drink 4L a day.
