Do you think i can lose weight with this diet?

morning wake up call: veggie juice (celery, baby carrots, 1 apple, pinch of cayenne pepper)

breakfast: fruit smoothie, scrambled eggs w/ cheese and salsa

lunch: 2 turkey burgers w/salsa (no bun) large garden salad

dinner: rice and chicken, steamed veggies

pre-bed meal: bbq salmon.

im not sure if I will lose weight, but I suppose it’s a little healthier, high in protein for muscle gains. I also will be drinking a liter or 2 of water each day. I think im a bit dehydrated at the moment.

It depends what and how much you’re eating now. I wouldn’t suggest eating the same thing every day, though. You need more variety to get all the nutrients you need. But, generally, it looks good.

Good luck.

thanks, lately I’ve been filling up on carbs and eating twice a day. this will be more protein, I know it’s not quite keto, but I think I need some carbs if im going to be working or doing cardio each day. Im just not that creative with recipes, I like to keep things simple and don’t like to spend a lot of time in the grocery getting different ingredients so I often eat the same thing everyday.

Do you have a slow cooker?

yes I do but I never use it.

You can usually buy boneless/skinless chicken thighs pretty cheap. If you slow cook those, they shred SUPER easy. It usually takes me about 5 minutes to shred 3 pounds. Season half with taco seasoning for easy fajitas, nachos, and taco salads. Leave the other half plain or season with something else for salads and such.

ok thanks for the tip. will try that.

Oh, and to double up on ingredients (bell peppers for fajitas and nachos)/cut carbs, you could try those bell pepper nachos that I posted the other day. They tasted amazing and bonus, no carbs from the chips.

Your diet sounds delicious.

You’ll only lose weight really if you can sustain it and the same meal every day can get boring. I like your short term chances but question how things will go in the long term.
