Try carb cycling with 3 high carb days following 3 low carb days eat whole foods/wheets and low gi carbs like oats sweet potatoes and whole wheat products. Eat 13 to 15 calories per pound of bodyweight drink 2 to 3 liters of water with a glass on empty stomach in the morning( gradually increase this) 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight and good workouts will help you cut down in no time. Don't forget the healthy fats from peanut butter nuts olive/coconut/fish oil and any unsaturated fats remember the ratio should be 52 %carbs 32 % protein 12-15 % fats take a multivitamin alongside too. Hope this helps :)
So far since last week I have been drinking a litre of green tea and water only. It's really hard and green tea isn't the most pleasant of beverages.
Yeah that's why add a glass or two of apple/grape juice and honey in it that's ought to make it good enough try peaches too if you want. And I could never drink that much green tea(hot) there's not enough time in a day try iced green tea this is better than gatorade or other overpriced sports drinks with artificial sweetners and what not!
That's exactly what I do. I make it the night before and stick it in the fridge so I can down it the next day. That's the only way I can get that stuff down. Lol
Remember this is supposed to be fun don't force something unpleasant on you that way you're only setting yourself to fail, the reason most strict ass diets don't work get creative and adopt a healthy lifestyle not a "diet"
Exactly diets don't work because they make a person nuts!! I'm just trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle. I'm slowing getting used to the green tea. It's not nice and I wouldn't choose to drink that at a party but taking a few gulp fills from the fridge during the day will only be good for me.
Try the new recipe tomorrow and get back to me how you like it remember add apple juice just an hour or so before you plan to drink it, juicer was just too much work lol so I just blend them these days :p
