|Hi, I have just joined this site and am looking forward to posting and hearing professional comments.
I have been training/eating well for quite a while now and have just got a few more pounds to shift. Im 5 ft 2, and weight 106 lbs. I would just like somebody to have a look through my regular diet sheet and see if im doing okay. The only thing is, I dont seem to be getting rid of those last few pounds and not sure what im doing wrong. I will have to post in the fitness section as well to see whether it is my training programme also. My main problem is my butt, the rest of me is doing fine, ie arms, stomach (even got a 6 pack showing! cool.gif ) but my thighs and bum dont seem to be going anywhere. Would really appreciate some help.
B: Banana, Oat so simple, Breakfast sprinkle
L: Tuna, Sweetcorn, salad, beetroot
S: Grapes, pineapple
T: Chicken breast, wholemeal pitta, cheese
All of this comes to about 1,230. I do change it about a bit, but mainly the lunches and teas, but probably not by much, my second menu comes to about 1,290.
I had been using a site which helped you calculate your cals and record them down and apparently my maintenance cals were about 1600, plus you had to eat all of your exercise calories so sometimes I was eating about 1,900 sometimes more if I had exercised harded that day. Is this right? I dont want to eat too less or too much and its really hard to work out exactly how much I should be eating.
My exercises are pretty good I think, ie for the cardio days (sometimes x4)I am just using the treadmill and crosstraining, each doing about 18 mins each using interval training. Then on the strength training days (x3) I am using somebodies plan which involves alot of whole body resistance training moves plus weights.
So, can anybody help to see where im going wrong.
Thanks and sorry its a long post wink.
