diet tweeks

Ok ,I do actually share my diet and exercise changes with people in person. RARELY:) Yesterday ,I shared my recent food diary with a friend of mine who is a body builder. I don’t want to be a body builder but my goal not only includes losing weight but losing fat and increasing muscle. I am training to be a black belt in tai kwon do. I need muscle to do those jump kicks! My main meals were ok but snacks definitely needs to improve. I actually know these things but it helps when someone points them out. Lets start with the yogurt. Blueberry Chobani not the best choice. It is better than just fat free yoplait but if I want the best plain greek yogurt is better. Ditch the Kind bar too much sugar. I realized that after I bought it. I can make my own snacks with nuts and fruit. Dang there goes that menu planning again. Skip the cheese has lots of salt and I get can get calcium from other sources. The crackers should be replaced with veggie sticks . Same thing salt and carbs. I’m getting cabs with main meals. Natural carbs such as fruits are better. Stop the muscle milk. If I want to do protein powder there are better sources according to my friend. I won’t mention which because I want to look more into that. It does help to share. I will see how these changes work for me.

  1. Tweeks are good! Big changes are much harder to stick with, I think. Shift a little, get used to it, see how it works, then shift some more. I agree with the KIND bar rip. Unbelievable how much sugar some of the varieties have.
    BTW, I tried signing up for tae kwan do (sp?) a year or so ago and got a ‘trial’ one-on-one lesson with the dojo. I’m still sore, he almost made me cry and vomit and I never went back. I just wanted to be a white belt and learn how to kick and he completely wasted me for 45 minutes.
    So I am REALLY impressed you’re on your way to black belt and have every confidence in your toning and weight loss future based on my wretched experience!
