As you can see from my signature line, I started at nearly 190 lbs and this morning I was at 158 lbs. It does work!
I keep it really simple, eating very similar meals from day to day, but I don't find this boring. In fact, I find it kind of comforting. You may differ
2 eggs, 3 slices bacon or a sausage
Big salad of mixed greens, 1/2 avocado, a handful of cucumber slices, a little bit of bell pepper, some coleslaw/broccoli slaw mix and olive oil/balsamic vinegar dressing.
A can of tuna or salmon, some roast chicken, beef, pork or shrimp (whatever's in the fridge that catches my fancy - usually 5 or 6 oz worth)
A small serving of fruit (1/2 an apple, a half cup pineapple, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries)
5-6 oz protein, 1-2 cups steamed vegetables with butter. Maybe 1/2 a white potato, sweet potato or 1/2 cup of white rice as well.
1/2 - 3/4 cup of frozen berries with 1/4 cup coconut milk and a square of dark chocolate.
Beverages: water, black coffee, plain chai tea
Usually I come in at around 1500-1600 calories. I try to stick to nearly 95% primal but have been known to use barbecue sauce and eat an ice cream bar When I started I ate dairy and almond butter but I've cut back on those quite a lot. I did have some cottage cheese this week and really enjoyed it, but I don't make a habit of it.
I try to move a fair bit. I walk 20 min every day, recumbent bike 15-20 min every day, work with 5 lb dumbbells a couple of times a week, and do wall pushups and squats and run sprints when I think of it. I'm not a gym rat or a lover of cardio. I don't like sweating
