Hi everyone. I've been one of those people that are constantly on and off diets and really get nowhere. I am a big procrastinator and always make excuses. I used to be a bit more in control, but college food and drinking without restraint has bloated me to 205. I'm 5'11 and by September I want to be at 190.
I've had success with keto diets, but it seems that without carbs I end up making up excuses about why I should just have a little bit and binging one day and the diet goes downhill. I can much more easily manage a diet with moderate carbohydrates so here's what I've made up:
1-Protein pancakes (5 egg whites, 3/4 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese. If you want the recipe let me know because they're actually amazing and don't taste like the recipe makes them sound)
(20 minute morning jog)
2-chicken sandwich (2 slices wheat bread, filet of chicken or equal protein, tablespoon of hummus, tomato, and lettuce)
3-chicken and zucchini
4-chicken/lean steak/fish and broccoli
(Lifting and 15 minutes of cardio at around 10 p.m.)
5-Protein pancakes and whey protein shake
10 p.m. is the only time available for me to lift so I have to work with it. My calories come out to about 2300. I figure that by writing down my weight loss experience I will finally stop pushing things off and getting distracted. I want to finally be at a healthy bodyfat. Hopefully everyone can guide me a bit since I'm somewhat informed, but no expert.
