well....mine sucks so i was wondering if you guys could help me out
ive heard this 5 or 6 small meals a day thing but what should i eat in these meals, just fruit and stuff?
also how much cardio should i do right now i do cardio everyday of the week except the days i train, which is 4, i go on some fairly tough biking for half an hour
btw ive cut my calorie intake by like half
What are you trying to accomplish weight loss?
yeah i have a hard time doin it
I am not a nutritionist so the best advice i can give is do some research and find out healthy foods that you eat and eat them...no unhealthy foods.
But sorry mate but i can't help you with much, my metabolism is fast and i have never had to lose weight.
Eat healthy, cardio, lots of water
Hi... Eating five/six times per day helps your body process the food intake rather than say eating 2000 calories in a course of three meals per day, eating 2000 calories in a course of six meals per day gives your body more time to process the food.
Eating three times per day with large portions will take longer for your body to process the food, store food automatically which increases fat on your body.
Eating six times per day decreases this risk and helps your body process the food... if your not looking to gain size merely drop alot of fat off your body then simply eating your regular meal but save half of it and placing this in the fridge and eating the other half say two hours later.... Do this with your breakfast/lunch/dinner..
Cardio: do asmuch as you feel you want to do (not what you can do)... you will persevere.
And foods you should be eating include fresh fish like cod, chicken breast, along with pasta, potatoes.
Fruit i would recommdn just using as your "snacks" throughout the day and not an essential, and possibly before your jogs/cycling.. as they are good energy sources.
i will be posting up a large nutritional thread soon
This is a pretty standard day for me on workouts and diet. It should give you a good refernce and a base to build on.
6:00AM - 1TBS Peanut butter
7:00AM - 1 Banana, 2 scoops protien powder (blended)
8:00AM - 3/4 cup oatmeal plain (usually low carb)
10:00AM - 1/2 Cup Blueberries, 8oz plain non-fat yogurt
12:00pm - 2 slices whole wheat bread, 5 baby carrots, 2oz lowfat cheese, 8oz low sodium ham, 1TBS low cal mayo, 2 TBS mustard
2:00pm - Ballance bar
4:00pm - 6oz cottage cheese, 1 medium orange
6:00pm - Pita pocket (whole wheat), 17 Turkey pepperoini slices
8:30pm - 1 cup green veggie (broccoli, brussels sprouts..), 15oz Chicken, 2 cups salad, 2 TBS low cal dressing
Thats 9 meals. I make all my snacks in the morning and usually cook enough chicken breasts for 3 or 4 days at a time. Calories: 2784
6:15am - 45 minutes cardio/5 days a week
11:00am - weight training/3 days a week
jui-jitsu - 3 hours/Monday/Wednesday/1.5 hours Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Kickboxing - 2 hours Tuesday and Thursday
I realize the diet is busy because you have to eat so frequently but I cannot argue the results. Once I am fully cut up the diet will change a little. I will add more carbs and up the calories a little to hopefully add more muscle mass.
