I recently came to the funny conclusion, it is April, it is a mid April and summer is right around the corner and I am still in my very not pretty 200's. My metabolism is still slow, but I think something is happening for the better. So, here is new plan - my 90 days challenge.
Step 1 Consume at least 80 oz of water a day
Step 2 Start eating right
Step 3 Start supplementation
Step 4 Start Working out
Step 5 Detox
Step 6 Keep a good work
Step 1 is complete. About a week or so I've been drinking at least 4 bottles of water and I almost completely cut out coffee (since it does opposite of good for water intake). Will limit coffee for few time a week and not much.
Step 2. I did this before - no diet, but eating right. I am following low glycemic eating style. Each food should be balanced - protein, vegetable, good carbs, low gycemic food. 2-3 fruits a day
My mother-in-law gave my mashed potato, fish, and salad for breakfast. I think it is very cultural to have big meals, but also she raised two boys that never had to worry about overeating. Ate salad and some fish. Had just a little bit of potato.
I know it is wrong, but somebody else cooked for me and I get to enjoy it. Well, I am working on it. I did talked to her and told me what I am trying to do, so now she is not sure what to feed me.
Snack - Kashi Bar,
Lunch - Dropped my healthy lunch, so I had to buy cesar salad - used the dressing, but skipped croutons.
Dinner Soup, Meatball.
