Tips on weight loss and eating healthily?Watch
Posted from TSR Mobile
Once you know your calorie and macro-nutrient requirements just follow them. You don't have to eat super super healthy to stick within them either (again I tried that and it got ugly. I started DREAMING about food) but just make sure you follow them.
Myfittnesspal is an amazing app that helps you track all of this.
I Think you should:
-reduce the amount of salt in your food(also salt from spices mixtures, fast foods and frozen/instant foods)
-try to eat 3 servings of veggies and 1 serving of fruit every day(more or less 200 g each)- eat them fresh/steamed
-eat basmati rice/lentills/millet groats for your dinner(together with veggies and some poultry/fish, but do not deep fry it!)
-eat eggs/white cheese/tuna/ salads for your last meal and eat it 3 hours before you go to sleep
-have something fullfilling for breakfast(porridge/ scrumbled eggs with wholemeal bread/ homemade granola&yogurt)
-drink 2l of WATER every day, don't drink sweetened juices, don't add sugar to your coffee/tea
- don't forget about fats- they are important too! Eat some nuts/almonds(for example with your breakfast) and add olive oil to your dinner
-don't eat salty snacks/sweets/fast foods
-eat regularly-every 3/4hours and don't eat anything between your meals
hope that helps!
Oh! And don't forget about exercises- in your case 40mins-1hour of cardio at least 3times a week should help you can swim/run/rollerblade/have long walks/jump on a jumping rope/try some youtube workouts like Jillian michaels/mel b/tiffany rothe?
-Track your weight and size of various body parts (any body part can be added via website)
-Input a goal weight (loss or gain) and it will give you a rough estimate of calories per day
-Find out calories and nutritional values of foods (Its never failed to find any food I have eaten)
-Put in a recipe manually or with a URL and from the ingredients it will calculate nutritional values and calories in the recipe.
-Visit their forums for support and advice from other users
-Modify your ratios for individual diet requirements (body builders want to ensure the eat 40% protien, 40% carbs and 20% fat, however, the average fitness seeker may want to ensure they consume 40% carb and 30% each of fat and protien)
It's obviously not a quick fix but it does help make you more aware of different kinds of foods and how much of them you are consuming.
Also if you can spare 20 mins 2-3 times a week, try looking for HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) on youtube, I lost a stone in a month with no diet changes (using Josie Gibsons '30 second slim'). Alternatively join Roller Derby; its fun, active and a brilliant stress relief
