well, this week food monitoring wise was alright, khabbaset like 2 days mish 3 :P.. but i didnt follow much of the plan,, i didn't give myself time to think of preparing food according to the schedule,, i have been walking a little bit too..
gonna be more specific next week. no plan. just ground rules, and its just a trial..
ok, lets say for this week i want to:
walk 3 times for 1 hour with steady pace,, not to clear my mind but to exercise
i have a question: if you wanted to exercise in the morning would you rather have breakfast and go exercise or go exercise first? since breakfast is gonna be burnt throughout the day later on?
i want to have two meals, not three, and one snack in the middle to maintain sugar levels.
lets say i go exercise early morning, have breakfast sometime at 9:00 , go ........ (fill the blank) , and something like 7:00 pm with some one filling balanced meal. and thats it.
snack time should be at 2:00 pm and most preferably to be fruits! which has sugar/vitamins and no carbs.
i don't know about it? its been a week with regular two cups/day which is ?? so what alternatives should one take to work? i will try to replace is with water.
now what qualifies for breakfast?
definitely 2 toasts and something, name it ( labaneh/cheese/ turkey/7umos/thyme+ 1 tbs OO)
what qualifies for 7:00 pm meal?
Salad for sure
definitely its mainly protein ( 120 grms of meat/chicken/fish/tuna/eggs)
go as low as possible on carbs ( rice/pasta/freekeh/bread/starch) 6 tbs or below.
Soup if you can since its too hot/ something with vegetables is always good.
i don't think im being creative with the options.. must dig in some cook books.
i have questions in my mind like: what if i wanted to go have some burgers/pizza with my friends? what does this meal equate to?
i think if you manage to have a normal breakfast and a small snack, you can give it to yourself if you had fried stuff/bready/greasy for your main meal but its important not to eat till you get full.
and ofcourse dont eat directly before you sleep. give yourself 2-3 hours minimum.
water water water.
exercise is how you compensate for your gourmet sins if any :P
guess me is clear, at least to me.
