Since December 2007, I have lost around 20 kg-Started at 85kg, and I'm currently 65kg. Im having real difficulty reaching my ideal weight of 60kg, I"ve tried lots of different things, but my weight constantly hovers around 64-65, and has been like this for about a 8-9 months or so. The last thing that I can think of is that perhaps Im not eating enough? An example of my daily diet is below...opinions would be fantastic!
1/2 cup Oats cooked in water & a splash of skim milk
Apple OR half a grape fruit
1.5 cup of cheerios & 1 cup skim milk
Skinny latte - regular size
Usually a sandwhich (never white bread) with Vegemite or Tuna
some carrot/capsicum/celery cut up
& a apple OR an orange
A huge garden salad with a little tuna & ricotta on top.
Don't always have an afternoon snack, if I do it would be another coffee, or a carrot, or a couple of corn thins.
What ever is cooked at home, always vegetarian (we eat fish tough) / healthy food. Usually lentil dahls with brown rice, pasta dishes, salads, spanish omlettes....that sort of stuff. If we ever eat take away, it is japanese. Sushi rolls, sashimi, teryiaki tofu etc. I will always have a small portion of this dinner, then load up on salad or steamed vegetables.
If I do get hungry thorought the day, I'll have an extra piece of fruit (could this be my problem?) I also drink heaps of green tea and water! some times i have 2 squares of chocolate after my dinner aswell, but not everyday.
Currently I exercise 6 days a week, alternate with 45 min power walks (around 300-320cals burnt) and 40 min jogs (around 500cals burnt) each morning. I have been doing pump & rpm classes too, which i have stopped in the last month or so...wasnt really liking the gym atmosphere & saw no difference in about 6 months of regular attendance.
Any opinions very welcome, feel free to critique!
