[QUOTE=StellarKart;5528373]I would second the switch to oatmeal. It sounds like your diet (at least from the info provided) is fairly sound. You're eating foods with a low glycemic index, which is good. Things like whole wheats, eggs, lean meats, pasta, veggies, etc. This kind of stuff is ideal for a healthy diet. Like superwho said, don't wait hours and hours between meals, try to keep a little something in your stomach at all times, maybe try adding a protein bar here and there to curb appetite when you're on the go. I would recommend not buying foods that are "low fat" or "reduced fat" or "no fat" unless specifically prescribed by a doctor. These kinds of foods are usually loaded with unnatural sugars which have a high glycemic index and will likely make you store these simple carbs as fat.
Diet will get you a long way, but exercise is essential for weight loss. Even if all you are able to do is walk or run around your neighborhood, results will come so much faster if you get your heart and muscles working along with your diet.[QUOTE]
Great info... Keeping your metabolism up is Key! I believe after a hard workout you keep your metabolism up for 39 hours - (odd # I know ) Doing this daily helps shed old fat and keeps new fat off
