My first post after reading tons on this site. WOW…what a great discovery. You guys are the best at what you do. I’m really glad this site exists. =)Looking for any info…even good critisism
My current goals are weight loss and general health improvement for now. Not after muscles gains yet just muscle retention (of what little I have) until I get to a lower weight. I’m 6’0 237lbs (BMI-obese). Two months ago I was 254lbs, so I’m slowly winning my battle of the bulge.
My current diet is just cutting calories. No special program yet, just eliminating the garbage and having shakes (fast food, pop, restaurants that sort of stuff are gone) and daily bouts on my home bike. I do daily cardo for 1hour on my stationary bike at mid level resistance which makes me work like a pig.
My question is this. I haven’t seen (found yet) any recipes for good weightloss shakes. This is what I have been taking twice everyday as meal replacements. (I eat tons of veggies in between the shakes)
1 liter skim milk
1 scoop whey powder
1 scoop slim fast
1/2 tsp flax oil
1 large bananna
12 frozen strawberries
1 cup blueberries
2 tbs cod liver oil
I blend it all up
now it tastes great…I’m just not sure if it’s good enough for a meal replacement. I try and eat 4-5 times day as such.
1 cup skim milk
1 1/2 cups special K
2-3 peices of fruit (whatever is around)
More fruit and veggies. Again 2-3 pieces or if veggies cups
Shake w/ no flax oil
Dinner- Usually skinless chicken breast, 2 serving of veggies (corn etc) and a small salad
Meal 6 (sometimes)
Same as meal 1…bowl of cereal before bed.
You think I am on the right road? or am I off in the bushes going in circles in the long run.
