Im a guy, but im quite (read really) short lol. I weigh 9st 13 and have a bmi of 23.
The problem is I feel I am quite fat- eg I have noticeable man boobs and hold nearly all my weight on the front of my stomach. I also have comparatively a large rib cage which doesn't help with the moob's.
Anyway, hoping to lose weight I have a plan for the summer. I don't want a strict diet or calorie counting as it will only put me off. Also the gym is out of the question due to cost.
My plan is for food-
Breakfast- Porridge Oats cooked in water with a tablespoon of honey and 1 serving of fruit (eg banana, strawberries etc)
Lunch- Alternate between ham salad sandwich, a ham/chicken salad, jacket potato and beans, egg with corned beef and salad, Homemade soup (But thats rare :P). With a piece of fruit or other healthy snack.
Dinner- Varies what we have at home but Spag Bol, Stir Fry, Fajitas, Chicken Salad with wedges, Curries with rice. Lamb/Chicken with potatoes and vegetables and similar home cooked meals. (I will though cut down on portion size)
Evening snack/Supper- Piece of fruit.
To drink- 250ml of Orange Juice plus at least 8 glasses of water. Some tea, but drink it black with no sugar. Also a multi-vitamin and a Calcium supplement.
- 20 minutes on the cross trainer at home everyday.
- Go for at least 3 20 minute walks per week.
- We have some dumb bells at home but I wouldn't have a clue how to use them. They are 3 and 5kg ones. I could have a go I suppose
This compares to nearly zero today, though I do a bit of walking- say 90 minutes per week to lectures.
Do you think I could lose say, 6 or 7 pounds by August?
