Since the first of the year, i have been pretty consistent on working out and running. But diet is my weakness. I have never dieted, and don't plan to actually do a diet like atkins or south beach etc. But I do want to see more results, beyond what I get from exercise, and I know i need to eat better to do that.
I know many of you have had success with the low carb diets, so give me some tips on foods. again, i am not doing this gung ho, just trying to make some small changes that can last.
so given i am a complete picky eater and a carb addict, i need some suggestions. I just want to watch my carbs, and cut back some, not as drastic as measuring them etc. I eat a lot of carbs.......being that i don't particularly like veggies, fruit or fish, i eat a lot of junk- love potatos, rice, pasta, junk food, candy etc.
so i am trying to focus on cutting out at least the white foods like potatos/rice/pasta at both breakfast and lunch. I usually have at least one with dinner, although i usually eat brown rice, not white. I figure if I can cut out bread/pot/rice and pasta from my first two meals, it should help a bit? so what are some good ideas for lunches then?
i usually have a protein shake in the morning, so breakfast is covered- i guess i can do a couple of eggs if i want? what are good ideas to bring for lunches? i usually have a sandwich or baked chips with soup. i plan to cut out the bread and chips at lunch for sure. today i am doing tuna with mustard and pickles, and then might have a tomato 'soup on the go' later if i get hungry. i have almonds for a snack before the gym. what are other good choices for a picky carb addict trying to cut back?
