one meal a day is stupid. going to give the old blueprint a try.
wake up call: juice of 2 celery thingies? a few baby carrots, 1 apple, and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
breakfast: fruit smoothie with protein powder, 1/2 cup oatmeal, mix of raisins and pumpkin seeds
lunch: 1/2 cup quinoa and onions with marinara sauce, large garden salad with olive oil and cheese, tomato basil or some other kind of light soup
dinner: bean salad, baked potato, side of peas and cheese on the baked potato.
sounds simple enough. now let’s see my weight.
IMO, make the starches 1 cup, they’ll keep you full. Sounds like a hungry but healthy diet. You can add unlimited raw veg if you need it though.
To lose weight, I think some kind of endurance exercise is needed. I heard of a guy losing 100 lbs with 1 hour of brisk walking on a treadmill every day.
That doesnt sound like 1200 calories-ish @lifer …
I’m guessing you’ll be downing a lot of water ?
Try adding some type of soup with veggies, it’ll keep your hunger at bay.
Good luck !
Sounds healthy but not much food.
I don’t think it would be enough food for me.
I long for a salad.
I can’t afford it right now.
Have frozen vegetables though.
Good that you are eating so well but it does sound like very little.
Hi @Lifer! I am on a high protein and vegetable diet cutting out carbs. so far I have lost 3 pounds.
well let’s see, I think the calorie amount is about 1500, but not sure, and protein I get 15g from protein powder, 12g from cheese, 12g from sunflower and pumpkin seeds, 21grams from a can of beans, and another 10grams from peas. so add that up and you get 70grams of protein. plenty of protein.
If I need more calories I will add more olive oil and a piece of bread to soak up the olive oil in the bottom of the bowl. or a bag of pistachios, which will up my calories and protein.
