But i need to formulate a healthy eating diet that won't set me up to fail from what i understand the eating every 2 hours or 6 small meals is ideal for weight loss.
so far i have
6am- banana? this is when i plan to do my cardio
8am-breakfast-oatmeal/special k (plan to alternate daily)
Ps-Im going to cut out fast food and soda completely. Please keep in mind iam a full time college student and worker so the food has to be easy to make. and one more thing estimates on weight loss? how much can one lose in 3 months time? thanks bros!
if your serious about losing weight you should really cut out all sugar.
Breakfast should be carbs like Oatmeal in a bowl that is about half your fist.
For snacks i would stick to nuts and vegetables.
I also would invest in some vitamins like Omega 3 and a multi vitamin.
For lunch i would eat clean protein like turkey or chicken and have veggies like carrots, parsnips, steamed broccoli, Steamed or not steamed spinach. Think dark leafy vegetables. if you have a salad make sure it's an oil and vinegar dressing no cream no cheese.
For dinners I would have a large salad and a small amount of protein. Ideas like EGGS, turkey, nuts.
When you go to bed i would take an omega 3 also i would invest in.
I have some before you go to bed and after a workout. It gives your muscles the essential needs to keep your muscle stable and strong. This with a proper diet like the ideas i have given you should do wonders.
I also would make sure you go threw all your house and dump any unhealthy food. Your trying to break a habit of eating garbage which does nothing for you body. dump it and when you have a food craving first thing is drink a 2 glasses of water and wait. Some people eat out of habbit and not nessecity, you need to eat out of need not want.
Good luck to you bro, your 22 your young enough to start making healthy changes in your life, be sure you keep consistent and positive with your attitude. This will change your life.
Also have one cheat day make sure it's only one a week! and not a binge eating fest. Good luck bro you have the ability to change your life. KEEP AWAY FROM DAIRY,CHEESE! that **** is no good for cardio! (but yes on your cheat day)
