    So first day went like this...

    Breakfast- porridge (two flat tablespoons of oats made up with milk) with a teaspoon of peanut butter (300ish calories?), glass of orange juice (100), tea

    Lunch- chilli with rice (530), tea

    Dinner- feta and spinach pastry with veggies (350)

    Snacks- chocolate geobar (130), milk in tea (100), dates (100)

    Total calories = 1610. Slightly above target...oops. Not sure how much 110 calories matters in light of the fact I've burned about 750-800 calories in exercise today...

    Exercise- 4 miles cycling about the place, 25 minutes running on the treadmill (between 10-13 kph), 35 minutes on the x-trainer.

    Feeling quite hungry actually
    Eat more protein. Seriously. It'll keep you full, and lean proteins tend to be lower in calories than complex carbs (and obviously simple carbs too).

    Hey Lell!!

    I would recommend cutting out tea from your diet, especially if you have it with sugar and milk (an average glass of milk can contain up to 16g of sugar). Instead opt for mint tea, peppermint tea or green tea.

    Also orange juice has a high calorie content and should be drank sparingly. Stick to water, water and more water! Not all fruits and veggies are 'healthy' in the way you may think. For example apples, oranges, pineapples and bananas are all actually high in calories and sugars. Best to swap the fruits for veggies such as kale, spinach and broccoli. And if you fancy some fruit, fresh blueberries and raspberries are better.

    Lastly, pastry and chocolate bars/energy bars are a big no no when it comes to losing weight! They are packed full sugar. Try to think more about healthy eating, rather than counting calories. Lean and clean!!

    Hope this has helped Z.

    Hahaha, not only is this advice completely erroneous, but you are also replying to a 3 year old thread...

    I don't even understand how people find these threads to bump them :confused:.

    In July I lost a stone in 4weeks. I know this isn't healthy and this month I pretty much put all the weight back on. How do I keep the weight off? I want to start excercising but my back is really weak and I get tired after 10mins with a lot of pain, so I mainly rely on my diet to lose weight.

    Increase your resistance training to build muscle this makes your body work far more efficiently at rest. Reduce cardio to two sessions a week and get somebody to do you gym plan with good compound moves that will burn fat. Make sure you eating enough protein fats and good carbs drink lots of water and good luck.
