Lately I've been having alot of trouble just trying to get motivation on exercising, and it's very complicated.. plus I've been having problems of what kind of healthy foods I should be eating during the day, lunch and dinner. Any help or suggestions?

Hi Amanda, firstly think of what may be eating you. Understand what's driving you to comfort eat and then work on some stratagies to stop that behavior. For example, don't stock food that will be bad for you, shop for the food you should be eating, be ruthless and clean out your cupboards, drink more water etc. Visualize what fit means to you and how it would enhance your life. ....realky look at it. Feel it. Then go for it. Can happen quite quickly once you start moving in that direction. Good luck and all the best:-)

Hey.
    Just started today and im trying to reduce as well. Just gave birth recently n started to eat healthy again, i suggest for u to eat lots of veggies, full ur plate up w veggies n have a healthy protein not fried only baked or broiled or boiled. Morning u can eat egg whites, is really low in calories n add vevgies like spinach leaves, turkey cold cuts, peppers, n onion any other green. Always try to keep urself under ur calorie intake. Consume enough protein it will keep u full longer n lest in carbs.

Think about why you are working out and what you want to achieve. It does take hard work and focus, no way round it, but it will be worth it.

Do a wide variety of challenging workouts for best results, there are loads to choose from on here. Try and do at least 4 days a week, of between 30-60 mins per session. You won't enjoy them all, but they will all help you toward your goal.

With regards to food: cut down on sugar and carbs and eat more protein. Read food labels, so you know what you are eating. Avoid crazy diets, just eat sensibly and healthily. Avoid the 5 "C's", chips, cake, chocolate, candy and cookies, as much as possible. Eat healthy 6 days a week (strict) and let yourself go a bit one day a week.

You know that you CAN do it, so take control and make it happen!

Oh that sounds very interesting.. I only do at least 20 min workout which is still pretty rough but I'll give it a shot.. also I'll try to improve my eating habits, I eat some what healthy but not enough, for this topic I was looking for a motivation buddy hopefully to help me everyday.. and that could be great if you can do that.

Try "go long", its a good 30 min cardio workout. It may be a bit tough, but you will feel great once its done! :-)
