Can anyone suggest where I may be going wrong.
I'm 5ft6 and weight 12st6lbs. I do a lot of exercise so have quite defined muscles with wide hips and shoulders. I look a little overweight but quite healthy. When I was 11 stone I looked slim so if I were to lose 2 stone I would be skinny. This is my goal weight.
I actually have never even attempted to diet as I'm not unhappy with my figure but as I feel constantly tired the doctor suggested I cut out refined sugars and unhealthy carbohydrates (specifically White bread, cake etc).
So I've done this diet for a few days now and I am losing weight very slowly (2lbs in 2 weeks) but I feel quite ill and so I know I'm going wrong somewhere. This is a typical day for me. Am I eating enough of everything?
Breakfast: homemade banana and blueberry wholemeal pancake. Basically a tiny bit of butter, half cup
Of wholemeal flour, blended together with one whole banana and a cup of blueberries. Served with two boiled eggs and a manage and papaya smoothie.
Lunch: large wholemeal wrap with tablespoon of houmous, mashed butternut squash, slices of grilled chicken and sweet corn. Served with a sweet potato brownie (trust me it's amazing). Which is cocoa powder, egg, sweet potato mash and milk all blended together and baked.
For dinner I have a large serving of mashed potato (without milk or butter), green veg mixed with lots of peanut butter and homemade beef meatballs.
Then I have an avocado and cocoa mousse which is just avocado, cocoa and honey blended (again delicious, that me). Haha.
For snacks I have sweet potato fries with houmous, bowl of yogurt with almonds, bowl of sugar free museli and milk.
I do a Minimum of one and a half miles of walking a day but it can be up to 5 miles. I average about 2 miles but I walk every single day.
What's missing? Or is my diet fine.
I feel constantly thirst, hungry and with a headache. This is my diet.
