View Full Version : Please Critique My Diet/Workout

Goal: Lose 15 lbs in 6 week and run 7 min/mile for a fitness test

Current Stats: 128-130 lbs, 4’11
I have to weigh 115 lbs

I have been reading the posts on this forum and two other. I was so confused when I read the sticky post on the dairy/yogurt as it suggested that those desiring weight loss, dairy should be avoided. Wow. Maybe, that’s why it took me so long to lose the initial weight.

I will be working on my diet plan but my workout plan has been quite consistent. It will change after I take the fitness test. I am mainly concentrating on running faster. Believe me, I have come a long way in less than 3 months from not being able to run past 2 minutes to running up to 45 minutes or longer now. It’s just not fast enough

I also started taking flax seed oil and lecithin. I will be ordering body octane this week. I haven't taken the sesamin because I wanted to do so when I am no longer seeing any improvements.

What do you think?

What...I almost wish I was. I am needing to get down to 115 because that is the max I could weight according to Army regulations. But by no means am I anorexic.

At one time, I met the criterias for bulimia (non purging) but I exercised a whole lot.
