Snack and meal plan for optimal weight loss?
Ok. Cardio, Cardio, Cardio. Six days a week. Check, you guys.
I try to tone and build up the muscle I got every day.
A gallon of water a day. No soda, no sugars, little to no caffeine.
Trying to keep my diet as paleo as possible aside from the occasional serving of organic brown rice.
And I don't eat past six o' clock.
I'm obese, 5'9", and my house scale says I weigh 220lbs(I was at 230.6lbs two weeks ago when I started out)!
How many calories a day should I be taking in for optimal weight loss?
For a few days now I've been taking a pre workout drink and after my morning cardio work out I've replaced a morning snack/meal with a low calorie protein shake. For lunch/dinner it's been chicken breasts, sometimes shrimp, with organic salad greens.
I want a snack I grab an Apple.
I wanna step It up and make sure my body is getting what it needs to sustain it's self and lose the weight.
Am I doing the wrong thing? Am I eating enough? I could really use the advice.
Sounds like you got it nailed there!
Eat a little often..every 2 to 3 hours...
The 3 meals a day theory is now old news...eat like a caveman and keep total calories around 1500 mark, keep carbs down to minimum...
Piece of toast before bed...you burn in your sleep but your body tries to save energy (fat) when you dont get food within a few hrs hence the little often.
But your doing good so be proud and keep going!
P.s fruit is good for you but full of sugars and calories so keep it to minimum same apples for fruit juices...even fresh orange has calories in some case as much calories as burger and chips (or fries if you America)
That's awesome advice, thank you! I knew I was heading in the right direction but I felt like some things could be tweaked nutrition wise. I'll be on them caveman hours, haha.
Yeah, I heard to keep fruit to a minimum and bulk up moreso on raw veggies.
What are your thoughts on juicing?
