Crash Dieting . . .

Recommended Posts

I am right there with you Mel. I have some more weight to lose and 33 days to do it in.

 

I thought I would try today to not eat carbs, but I can't do it. Its not possible for me. lol

 

I ate pretty well today though, so I am working on it. I have boot camp tonight and I am going to really push myself. I am thinking that the salad I just ate will not keep me full for long though. SO, I need a very low cal snack with some protein in it that I can eat when I get home from boot camp. Any suggestions?

I got home late from work and didn't have time to cook, so I ate a bowl of multi-grain Cheerios with low-fat milk and added some raisins.

Letting it digest before I go work out.

It has 100% of several vitamins and minerals, so that's good.

I don't eat it every day, but good for times like this.

 

Good luck ladies!!!

Yay!! So glad you started this thread!!!

 

I worked out this morning for 1 hour 15 minutes total, I was supposed to take one of the dogs for a walk/jog this afternoon, but my afternoon got kind of screwed up and it was almost dark when I got home, so I'll try for the double workout tomorrow.

 

I ate a light yogurt, a banana, a lean cuisine, and a pork chop, and lots of water. Not my ideal menu, I usually have salad, but I'm not that hungry tonight so I just ate the porkchop.

 

We can all do this!

Ummm I love carrots or cucumbers, don't know if that's good prior to a workout. You should treat yourself to a protein shake after bootcamp. I put in protein powder, OJ, a banana, some vanilla yogurt and 3 strawberries. Oh and ice too. Blend it up, it's soo yummy.

That's super jill! Wow, with your double workouts I kow you'll see results. I'm so proud of you. I don't like working up a sweat.

We can all do this!

You're right we can do this. bunny_4.gif Gotta keep saying that to myself. It's so hard.

Thanks Kash about the shredded wheat tip and recipes. I'm going to try the salad tomorrow. I love balsamic.

We ended up having chicken and corn on the cob tonite (I know carbs). I added a side of steamed brocolli while FH added some potatoes which looked so good.

It was hard Jill! But I'm proud of myself for doing it. Now I have to go work out and I'm not wanting to. I'd rather have a nice relaxing bubble bath.

If you want to drop pounds fast, stick to a 1300 calorie per day diet. A good way to make sure you are getting enough protein is to follow this ratio: 22% protein (71.5g), 22% Fat (31.7g - yes, you need good fats) and 56% Carbs (182g).

 

Keep doing your strength training (weights) AND do 1 hour of cardio 6 days per week (target 228 calories burned each session). The equipment at the gym is usually off by 65%, so if the treadmill says you've burned 100 calories, it's really only 35. No one ever tells you that and it's a bummer.

 

I got this regime from my (expensive) trainer. I am so happy to share it and hope it helps!

 

Good luck!

Muscle Milk light is great. Put is in the blender with 1 cup of frozen berries and you have a terrific meal.
