So I've been adjusting my diet. Here's what I've done so far:
- added berries
- added a few salads here and there
- added some vegetables
- added nuts, dropped peanuts
- stopped drinking diet sodas (!!!)
Unfortunately after a few weeks this has not yet resulted in much weight loss. I was hovering from 230-233 forever, now I'm hanging around 230. Here's what I ate today (and this is typical):
breakfast - omelet w/ mushrooms, ham
snack - nuts
lunch - turkey, bell pepper, green beans (I think)
dinner - turkey casserole, all low carb
After some reading I'm probably overdoing the nuts. But other than that, do you see anything wrong with that general eating plan?
One other thing - I was very surprised to see a section in Mark's book on caloric expenditure, BMR, macronutrients, etc. I guess for some reason I thought I was leaving all that behind for people like bodybuilders to worry about. It does seem very CW...
