First off I know it's awkward for someone like me to be on a "Bodybuilding Site." I'm 6'1 352lbs.
I was supposed to have lap band surgery on August 26th and had to do a pre-op liquid diet before the surgery starting August 12th (I was 373lbs at the start). While I was doing that diet I found it relatively easy to control myself that I postponed the surgery to give weight loss a real attempt on my own without the surgery. In 1 week on that diet I lost 21lbs (it was basically starving yourself). I was losing anywhere from 5 to 2 pounds a day.
Now that I'm doing it on my own I am giving myself a 1,200 a day calorie limit. Yesterday my day eating was:
Breakfast - Emerald Breakfast on the Go Nut & Oatmeal Mix
Lunch - Turkey on Whole Wheat w/ Mustard
Snack after work - Banana
Dinner- 2 Grilled Chicken cutlets with Iceberg Lettuce & Grape Tomatoes then I had a peach
Snack - Danon Fruit at the Bottom
I also walk to the train after work which is a mile desk to subway station.
Am I doing the right thing? What else should I be doing?
Should I try doing sit ups will they do anything at this point?
