feedback on my slow carb so far
Okay, I have been doing it for a month and lost around 11 pounds which includes working out seven days a week. my typical day begins with a protein shake, I mixed OJ( 50%less sugar and calories orange juice brand) with a banana or strawberries and I add flax -also eggs whites , turkey bacon, veggie sausage or Canadian bacon, I don't Have beans or vegetables in the morning-hard to do.
lunch consist of lentils, chicken or beef and vegetable -dinner is fish or beef, beans, vegetables. Snacks includes almonds or celery/peanut butter. And I end w/ a glass wine.
The Best Answer
If you're following slow carb - drop the OJ, banana and strawberries. No fruit allowed.
I'd trade in the protein shake (especially if it's sweetened) for whole eggs or meat.
make sure you're getting enough protein.
working out 7 days a week may be a little much. If you're "forcing yourself to cheat" you don't really need to cheat big every week. spiking calories once a month should do it. You can go with a cheat meal or just eat fruits the other 3 weeks. your choice.
Define workout 7 days a week. That can easily be excesive and retard your fat loss due to lack of healing. Not to mention the body (especially my body) adapts quickly to workouts and I get deminishing returns. Just a suggestion, when posting, use as much detail as possible without driving people insane.
