66.6kg today... Awesome! I finally broke into the 66s which was my goal for the week (weigh in Sunday).
Yeah no worries Oli, I think everyone is different, which is why it is important, I think, for people to understand their own bodies. Some people might take a few days, some a week or more for their body to click on. Mine is usually the second week. If I eat the same each day I will lose the first week, then stop losing the second week.
I have a daily goal of 1200cal/5016kj. I don't precisely say... I am going up by 200 cal today & down by 200 the next or anything. I mix it up without any pattern because I still feel that your body will catch on to this pattern... your body is very smart.
I have been using calorieking & my daily goals on that are:
I normally come under with everything, if I type something in before I eat it and my 'fat' for example goes over & gets a red box around it (CalorieKing Nutrition and Exercise Manager $45) I change my mind & eat something different.
I will look back at my days for the last week or 2 and record exactly how much I have had each day:
Wed 30/09/09 4242kj
Thurs 1/10/09 5405
Fri 2/10/09 3850
Sat 3/10/09 4829
Sun 4/10/09 3574
Mon 5/10/09 4028
Tues 6/10/09 4234
Wed 7/10/09 4331
Thurs 8/10/09 4967
I personally don't think it matters how much carb or protein you eat in terms of weight loss, however if you are aiming for a certain amount of kj proteins make you feel fuller for longer so you aren't as hungry and don't stuff it up. If you have strong willpower & only eat the amount you aim for it won't matter.
Summing up the kinds of foods I eat each day roughly include: Uncle Tobys Bran Plus cereal with trim milk, nestle diet no fat yoghurt (is quite low in kj in comparison) low fat jelly, little tins of low fat tuna (like johnwest tuns temptations tomato & onion), eggs, bacon, bread, little tins of champignons (79kj), thin sliced ham, diet coke, coffee. No Sugar on anything. Heaps of vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, sweetpotato, potato, green beans, zucchini, corn, carrots, etc), bananas, tim tams occassionally, chocolate occassionally, Best dinners for least kj is probably steak & vegetables. 100g steak, overflowing with vegetables. Watermelon, salads with no cheese, light butter, low fat soups, green tea, vietnamese spring rolls for dinner (not the fried kind). Probably a lot more... all I can think of now.
Oh & I mentioned that I have been taking blackmores weight loss accelerate (90 tabs $30) (taken 2 tabs 1/2 hour before each meal - 6 per day).
Hope this helps.
