Hey all, new here, although I’m a long time reader. I need some help with my diet. This is a long post so be warned.
I lift 3-4 times a week and cardio 2-3 times a week. I’m trying to lose weight. I eat a little too much as it is, I’m 5 foot 5 and eat about 2200 kcals a day. I’m trying to cut back to 1800-1900 kcals for now untill I can get a bit lower. My current weight loss approach is cut back on carbs, increase protein, pretty basic. My problem is that by 2pm I am ravenous, like I am hypogylcemic and binge, a regular snack doesn’t cure it.
Here’s what I ate today, pretty typical although a little high in fat, usually I’m in the 25% range. I just posted untill afternoon because thats when the problem hits. Also, I am famished by my 10:30 snack.
1/2 cup dry oats, cooked topped with Splenda
1 Low carb Pro Shake (105 kcals, 22 grams PRO)
1 portion part-skim mozza cheese
1 homemade no-bake Pro bar
Fat Free Yogurt (not artificially sweetened)
1 cup lettuce
3 oz chicken breast
2 tbsp oil and vinegar salad dressing
1 Diet Soda
1/2 cup sliced cuke
Total: kcals 969
Fat: 34 32%
Carbs: 67 25%
Protein: 100 42%
