wheat cereal, orange juice, banana This meal is pure sugar....god, I hate orange juice, lol. Switch the wheat cereal to regular old fashioned (unsweetened oats)...it'll bulk you up w/o adding fat better than the wheat cereal will, it can be flavoured w/ a sweetner and cinnamon or add some peanut butter and chocolate protein. An apple, grapefruit or berries are better than the banana, but it won't hurt you if you keep it. You do need protein here though....if you don't add any protein & peanutbutter to your oats, have a protein shake w/ flax or make some eggs w/ yolks LUNCH
bacon and salad sandwich, apple, glass of water The apple is good....switch the bacon to lean roast beef or turkey or chicken...real food, not the deli crap...don't forget the mayo! evening meal
2 turkey steaks, medium in size, about 5oz each, boiled potatoes, salad, some water Add some fat here....oil&vinegar added to your salad would be good snack in between all of this
burger and chips much better options than chips! Add a sweet potato or some brown rice instead
bad diet a diagnosis???
recently i have begun, about 3 weeks ago, to take this protein shake called CYCLONE, its made by a company called MAXIMUSCLE, i take it once a day, not twice as recommended (i mix it with full fat milk, about 400ml) because it runs out too soon otherwise and is v.expensive...... even better than the milk is 3-4 tbsp of heavy whipping cream (not whipped cream) diluted w/ water
i also eat, rice, i never eat white bread, only wholemeal and brown, i dont like pasta so i try to stay away from that, tuna and fish too - i know i shouldnt but i really hate the stuff. i mainly eat lean chicken breast and protein. i dont eat much snack food - i dont like sweets and chocolate either - weird huh? What about lean beef, turkey, eggs, cottage cheese?
so does diet have something to do with it in my case???
