    For motivation






    Some of you might remember me from before. I had some stomach problems, which are almost fixed now and I am back to getting in shape
    My life is kind of crazy right now (looking for work and all), but I'm going to try my best to keep this journal up.

    Goals:
    •To get my body fat down.
    •Flatten my abs (they still stick out a bit from all those stomach problems.
    •Be the healthiest I can be! (no matter how good your body looks, none of it is worth it if you're not 100% healthy... unfortunately I had to learn it the hard way.)

    Background:
    •5'0, not sure on weight or body fat, guessing about 112lb and 26%bf
    •can't have: protein shakes, eggs, oats, sweet potatoes, rice, corn, all dairy, cod fish, coffee, chocolate, lemons (I have food allergies to these foods... I guess since I ate them all the time)

    Diet Plan:
    •1100-1200 cals/day
    •around 30p/50c/20f
    •at least 2.5L water/day
    •cheat meal once a week (usually Sundays)
    •eat not earleir then 2.5 to 3 hrs apart (this is one my my niggest problems)

    Workout Plan:
    M- 30 min cardio
    T-bis/tri +30 min cardio
    W-legs +30 min cardio
    Th-30 min cardio
    F-back/chest/shoulders +30 min cardio
    S-+30 min cardio
    Su-off

    Any suggestions are MORE then welcome.

    OK, I'll post today's diet and workout later on today.

    Hi Jenny
    Yup, I had a fool allergy test done. There're actually more food I have allergies to, but I don't really eat them anyway so I didn't bother to post them. It's not too bad, I fund a lot of new foods to eat, but I REALLY miss oatmeal.

    You should start by really figuring out what you need.

    1200 cals per day - You are not eating 1200 cals there. How much protein are you allowed according to your doctor?

    According to Fitday, I had about 1120 cals there (I forgot to add 1 capsule if wheat germ oil and 1 capsule of lecithing)..oops!

    My Dr said just to make sure to have enough grains, fruit and veggies (for fiber), but he also did say that I DO NEED protein, so not to go too low on that either. But according to my body it seems like I do OK with about 30% protein. Maybe eventually I'll be able to go higher (seems like my stomach is doing better and better), but for now I want to keep it safe.

    Thanks hun, I missed talking to you too. Haven't seen you on line lately, where have you been?
    It was basicly the same stuff. I added that dried fruit spread (called Fruit-Eze... actually tastes pretty good) and Primal Defense but other then that it was basicly the same stuff.

    Could you write out what you are eating down every little bit right down to the last bite. I just don't see that many calories AT ALL!

    I'm trying to go for 4 or even 5, but I end up eating all my cals by the 3rd meal so the 4th turns out to be only an apple.
    Something is definitely off wit my diet.

    Yeah, increase your calories to start. Then divide it between 5 meals a day.

    Why not do an isocaloric diet? 33% Protein, 33% Carbs and 33% Fat.

    That way you stay close to the protein you want. Check out the sticky in Diet forum. There is a shopping list in their. You can't have any Oats or sweet potatoes or Brown Rice?

    Eh, I cheated and had 2 more biscotti and more amonds. grrrrrrrrr

    thanks Jodi Yeah I think I neem more cals too, because I was starving today. How many do I need? Is there a formula of some sort to figure this out?
    I can't have rice either
    I think I'm gonna go one step at a time. Step #1 is to have at least 4 meals a day. When I'll get the hang of that I'll start being more specific about the food choices. I eat pretty healthy for the most part (biscotti are a rare thing at my house), so I think I should be OK.

    Question... post workout meal (it's about 1 hr after I workout.. takes that long to get home), is it OK to have flaxseed oil there? I think it might help keep my hunger at bay. I've read that post workout we shouldn't really have fats, but is 1 hr after working out still a post workout meal?

    You should have 12-13 cals per pound of bodyweight. You are eating junk because you are not eating enough and starving your body.

    Yes, 1 hour after workout is still considered PWO and should only be carbs and protein. Then 1 - 2 hours after that you should eat another meal.

    Jodi.. another question
    I'm reading the sticky again and it says that to cut we need 10-13 cals per body weight and to maintain 13-15. I'm not very active at all besides the workouts, so that's why I thought I needed to be on the lower side of that (10x body weight.) Am I missunderstanding something?

    If you go to 10 cals per pound NOW where do you go when you need to tweak because progress slows down? Nowhere! You start higher and drop as necessary. If you start to low you have no room to drop cals when fat loss comes to a hault. Going below 10 cals per pound will not only kill your metabolism but put your health on the line.

    After leg day I'm absolutely STARVING and sooooo thursty all day. I had a HUGE breakfast (like 1000 cals) and could eat more, why is that?
    I think it if wasn't for the leg days I'd be in a much better shape, but I can't just not work legs (dont' want them all puny looking). Eh.. NOT a good day.

    Oh and I'm also all frusterated today. I was offered a job in Miami, FL (I've been wanting to move for the longest time now), so I was all excited and then found out that although they calls this position "graphic design" it's not that at all, its just a sales position with a little bit of design envolved.

    Ummmm........because you are starving yourself.

    You HAVE to work legs. It's a large muscle group and your body requires more to recover. However, eating a 1K breakfast is not the answer. Didn't you eat before you went to the gym?

    I'm no one to give advice on nutrition... but girl you seriously need to get your calories in check. It helps if you plan your meals out in advance, especially right now when you're still trying to optimize your diet.

    1000 calories for breakfast alone? WTF?

    I worked the legs yesterday, not today. I'm always staving the NEXT days (weird ). I didn't even workout today.. too sore.
    I am raising my cals to 1300-1400 or so though
    I'm going to try to make a meal plan in advanced for tomorrow, maybe you could critique it for me?
