I am hoping to get some tips for how to alter my current diet and exercise plan to maximise results.
I am currently 70kg and would like to get down to 60kg.
In the past two weeks, for exercise I have been walking 30mins a day and also taking part in the couch to 5km program (30 mins per day, starting from week 1). I also do about 50 crunches, 50 bicep curls and 40 squats a day.
Food-wise, here is what i have been eating daily:
(please note I am a vegetarian)
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup almond milk
handful of berries
1 tbsp honey
2 slices rye/wholemeal bread
1/4 of a medium avocado
1 slice fat-reduced cheddar cheese
- a little bit of 98% fat free mayo
- assorted salad (tomato, lettuce, cucumber etc.)
-Coffee (with milk), piece of fruit
-Omelette with 4 egg whites and 2 yolks and mushrooms, plus salad
-baked pumpkin, zucchini, carrot + 1 tbsp light sour cream + portion of tofu
Although I am seeing basic results, they are limited compared to when I previously cut out carbs and increased protein in my diet, though exercised less.
Would you suggest that I increase the amount of exercise I do, or focus on changing my diet / removing carbs?
