Has anyone else tried this? I’m on day one of this ‘lifestyle change’, as I like to call it.
I’m currently sitting at 5’6″ and 160 lbs. My goal is not only to lose weight but to genuinely begin eating healthier and exercising. I would like to get down to 130, but I really want to focus on my physical health instead of a number.
I don’t drink soda much (if at all), so it’s easy to go ahead and cut that out. Green tea/coffee I’ve limited to 1 cup every other day.
I can drink as much water as I like throughout the day- and I’m trying to drink even more (I drink around 67 ounces/day as it is).
I’m also going to be walking 4-5 days per week for at least 1 hour. I haven’t exercised any in the past couple years, so I want to start out slow.
Here’s what my meal plan for today looks like (and any advice is welcome, since I’m kind of winging this on my own!):
Breakfast: 1 apple, 1 banana, lemon juice from 1 lemon, handful of shredded carrots, 1/4 scoop protein powder, and a little bit of milk mixed in my blender to drink. (12 oz container)
Lunch: 1 avacado, 1 cucumber, 1 handful of shredded carrots, 1 handful of kale, and lemon juice from 1 lemon with 1/2 scoop protein powder and a splash of milk blended into a drink. (16 oz container)
Dinner: Baked chicken (no marinade/spices), fresh kale, and 1/2 an avacado with water.
Does this sound like I’m getting everything I need to get in a day? I don’t want to do anything that could be detrimental to my health, but I also want to continue doing the ‘smoothies’ for breakfast and lunch, if possible, because it’s filling without me feeling stuffed.
