10 pounds lighter before 2009!!!!

#1
I'm starting a dairy to help me with this goal. i would like to lose 10 pound by the end of this month. I am a student, busy and don't really have time for the gym or i always make excuses not to go. so i have bought exercise dvds that focus on weight training. okay so today:

5 eggs with 3 yokes-used butter flavored spray to cook instead of oil
oatmeal mixed with grits with a teaspoon of suger
1 cup of rice mixed with veggies(white but i purchased brown rice today and will be using that from now on)
fried mashed chick peas(arabic food, i really like them)
1 cup of coffe with i tsp of suger

im sure others will be along to give you more informed advice, but I am a bit concerned about your diet plan - there is no fresh fruit or veg in there and i'm pretty sure the balance of what you're eating isn't great. Its obvious you are trying to build muscle what with all the protein, and I'm not educated on this type of dieting... but unless you are doing a LOT of working out in the gym (we're talking an hour upwards on weights) I dont see why you would need quite so much protein in there... my brother was trying to bulk up so had the protein and did 2 hours a day in the gym, and my ex was the same...

this isn't a criticism, just a concern (it may even be unfounded) xx

Wannabslim, yes i want to build muscle and lose fat. i was actually concerned that i was NOT getting enough protein, as the general bodybuilding rule is 1 gram per body pound. i am trying to do high protein, moderate fat, and complex carbs with the majority being protein as it is the building blocks for muscles. yes, you are correct about implementing fruits and veggies into my diet. it does not seem that i am getting all my daily nutrients in. i have been taking a multi-vitamin so i may get all my neccarry nutrients so my body may function efficiently. today i did have lots of fruits though and some veggies. here is how my diet looked like today.



12-7-2008

-1 large orange
-multi-vitamin
-2 bars of granola
-1 can of salmon

Hey hun, you can do this, keep going. Are you doing enough exercise to warrant the additional protein? As if you're not using it up through working out, your body can store it as fat (you may already know this, if so I'm sorry!). I never used to realise that - which is why even if you cut out carbs but you had a lot of cals in protein and didn't burn it, you could actually gain.

you are correct about my body storing unused protein as fat. and no i have not been working out as diligently as i am supposed to be. i do my 5 of 10 minutes in the morning. i have plenty of time to exercise if i get up earlier but its so hard to wake in the morning to exercise. i am going to make myself wake tomorrow morning for a cardio session before work. :sigh:
