Hi there. Thanks for all the tips and advice on the website!
I was looking for such tips as I have lost quite some weight in the past few weeks but I still have some tummy fat. I was never really fat before but I felt like being in shape again so I dropped a couple of kilos.
How?? Well as I wasn’t doing sports at all for a few months now, so I started exercising on a regular basis. For the past one and a half month, I have been jogging or playing tennis once in every two days. I also do exercises that focus on abs. It wasn’t easy at all at first as I had quite some fat and I wasn’t in shape any more. But then your body kinda gets used to doing sports again and you improve real fast.
As for the diet, I have cut all snacks, junk food and sodas obviously. I’m just hoping my diet isn’t too bad though, can you maybe let me know what you think?
Basically the idea is to have a good breakfast (as opposed to a light bfast or no bfast at all) so that I am not hungry in the afternoon. Lately I’ve had brown bread with small quantities of either light butter or light jam.
Then for lunch, I have food that I like but I make sure it’s not too fat. I usually go for some meat (chicken, beef or fish usually) with pasta or rice or boiled potatoes. I use olive oil for the meat but I make sure to use just enough and to get rid of the fat. I may have a yogurt and/or coffee to end my lunch.
Dinner needs to be a light one. I usually either go for a salad or for fruits (apples or a melon). And that’s it. It’s been working out pretty well so far so that’s good. I’m just hoping my diet isn’t bad.
I’ll add one more thing. For dinner, like I said, I have been having salad or fruits.
Lately I’ve had less and less food for dinner as I’m not too hungry any more (perhaps my body got used to not having big meals for dinner?). Anyway lately I’ve been having only 1 apple for dinner. And I feel fine after that. Is that not too little? It does not feel like it.
What do you think?
Hi Mehdi, you are probably getting enough energy and nutrition on that diet. If the aim is to lose fat then you do indeed need to eat less. However, the only way to know is to try and monitor your results. Weigh yourself weekly, take waist, hip, thigh, chest and arm measurements each week also. Keep up with the exercise – and focus on getting fitter too.
