Hello and I am new here. so I really am not sure how these things work. I am currently on a strict diet and i hope to get some guide. This is my meal plan. For breakfast I take a bowl of cereal and a cup of low fat milk. For lunch I take bigger portion of veggies and smaller portion of meat or fish depending on what I have. As for dinner, I take almost the same as lunch. I do no take rice, soft drinks, juice, fast food, desserts or even bread. For snacks, I go on fruits such as green apple and pear. How is my diet going? Is it okay or should I make any changes. I am supposed to lose at least 10 kg to get my ideal weight. I am also doing exercises at home using the Wii fit for at least 40 mins a day. I split to morning and evening since I am quite busy. Please leave a comment.
Hi and thanks so much for your posting. Welcome to our community! Good for you to be so proactive about your health. I'm not thrilled with the word "strict". The way one sheds the pounds has to be healthy and reasonable and sustainable. Can we change up the language and therefore the mental focus to a change in lifestyle for the better?
I'd get rid of the cereal as it's empty cals. Instead you need protein, fiber and healthy fat. Greek yogurt with walnuts and berries. Omelet with veggies and low fat cheese. Oatmeal with walnuts and berries. Protein shake with fruit, vanilla whey protein powder, and water or skim milk is great. Much more satisfying and kills carb cravings.
Lunch and dinner with lean protein and veggies is great.
I'd recd a mid-afternoon snack like a shake or yogurt.

Wiifit is great and keep it up. You may want to just get outside and walk as well. Great to mix it up.
