01 Mar 224 | 200 : MY WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE
Over the last few years, I have had my steady ups and downs when it comes to my weight. Unlike many of my friends, when I went to college I lost 20 lbs of fat and put on 15 lbs of muscle. I had an in-season weight of 167 with 12% body fat and an out-of-season walking around weight of 185 with 15% body fat.
Breakfast @ 7am Egg white frittatas (made with veggies like mushrooms, bell pepper, and onion)
Snack @ 10 Veggies with hummus or smoothie, I live on the road so hummar can be difficult but smoothies are easy to find. Just need to be careful to not get ones with lots of sugar
Lunch @ 12:00 Salad with protein or Veggies and protein
Snack @ 3 Small mixed green salad with chicken, cucumbers, green peppers, and tomatoes with a homemade lemon/garlic vinaigrette
Dinner @ 7 – 9 Fish and veggies, lots of veggies
Here are a few rules I will try to stick with (pulled from Tim Ferris’s Website)
Rule #1: Avoid “white” starchy carbohydrates (or those that can be white). This means all bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, and grains. If you have to ask, don’t eat it
Rule #2: Eat the same few meals over and over again, especially for breakfast and lunch. You already do this; you’re just picking new default meals
Rule #3: Don’t drink calories. Exception: 1-2 glasses of dry red wine per night is allowed
Rule #4: Don’t eat fruit. (Fructose –> glycerol phosphate –> more bodyfat, more or less.) Avocado and tomatoes are excepted
Rule #5: Take one day off per week and go nuts. I choose and recommend Saturday
Rule #6: Water, drink tons of water
While I am sure I will refine my meals, change up the workouts, and buy for fitness stuff to keep me motivated. Here is my game plan for now; let me know if you are interested in a weight loss challenge or something of that nature.
