OK, my old lady is after a diet to help her shed the pounds and get a bit fitter.
She eats super healthy now but has fallen into what her dietician has recommended her which is basically huge amounts of fruit.. and guess what shes not losing weight ! What is it about dieticians and their lack of understanding about fructose sugars and fat storage etc...
ANYWAY, she has asked me to sort her out with a little diet plan and routine. Now, my mum is very stubborn but I have outlied a diet that she likes the sound of.
She has two conditions - she will not eat first thing in the morning, she will not take any supplements (apart from multivits and oils), and likes the occassional glass of wine. She is unlikely to do any more than 60 minutes cardio per week but i'm working on convincing her.
She wants to lose this stone and I said it will take 6 months, perhaps slightly faster if she can do more cardio.
Wake up 730am, sleep at 1030pm.
745am Tea / Green tea, Cod liver oil, evening primrose oil
10am 50 grams starflower seeds/pumpkin seeds, an apple or 50 grams prunes, Green Tea
1pm chicken breast salad with olive oil dressing, Green Tea
330pm 10am 50 grams starflower seeds/pumpkin seeds, an apple or 50 grams prunes, Green Tea
630pm Salmon fillet / (lean meat or fish steak) with brocolli, peppers, tomatoes, Green Tea
10pm cottage cheese with lettuce, celery or any watery vegetable.
I think this equates to just under 2000 calories.
In terms of exercise, I think it would be 20 minutes of walking or cycling (around 110 - 120BPM) per week, plus 1 weights session (40 minutes and fairly light).
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
