So I don’t have time for cardio just now. I get home from work, cram my dinner down then help with the baby until he goes to sleep, by which time I’m exhausted and need to go to bed myself.
Problem is, this routine has made me put on some excess fat.
I reckon I can sort this out with some gentle dieting, I’m on my feet all day moving around and carrying heavy loads, swinging hammers, running up and down ladders etc, so I think I can get away with not doing cardio.
Current (average) days food looks like this;
7am - glass of water
10am - 100g of granola w/milk, piece of fruit, coffee
1pm - handful of spinach, tin of mackerel in olive oil, piece of fruit, water (that is my usual lunch, sometimes i forget to make it and have to buy a sandwich)
5pm - Dinner, whatever my wife makes, usually quite carby
6pm - coffee
9pm - toast w/honey (a bad habit, i know)
How can I change this average day to achieve a calorie deficit? I need to be able to maintain it.
I was thinking of carb-cycling, it worked for me before very well but I was training pretty hard so not sure it would work the same.
