I finally got to the point where I wanted to change myself for me and have lost a significant amount of weight in the past year. I started out dieting and a lot of cardio with a little bit of weight training. I have now hit a plateau. I juiced for 2 weeks and lost 10 lbs but as soon as I went back to solid food I gained everything back. I started at 320 Jan 2014 and am now to 250 and I float a few lbs every week. I attempted the Keto diet but did not like the way it made me feel. I have since went back to a low calorie diet and I am trying my hardest to keep eating throughout the day, which is hard because of my job. I am doing mostly free weights and a little cardio.
So here is my diet as of now. I drink a whey isolate in the morning with oatmeal mixed in, mid morning I have a bagel with light cream cheese, lunch I do a sweet potato,plain turkey burger patty, and wither black beans or veggies and brown rice. Afternoon I am doing greek yogurt and a small amount of raw almonds. Dinner is usually a lean meat and veggies. I work a 12 hour shift so I start at 6 am. I started a new high intensity workout this past week, 2 days on then rest 1. 4 rounds of 25 jj, sit ups, push ups, squats, and a 200 meter run. I know I should probably cut out that bagel.
My supplements are MetRx Whey Isolate, Rapture lean pre workout, Calcium, B12, B6, Fish oil, L carnitine, Acetyl L Carnitine, Vit A, Vit E, D3, Zinc, B2, Magnesium, Copper, Biotin, and Iron. It’s a lot and I should probably just take a multi vitamin…don’t judge me ha. Seeing how I just started this, do I need to tweak anything or do I have a good plan going? My goal is as everyone else’s, lose fat and gain muscle. I really appreciate everyone’s input and support.
