    Smile Help me lose TEN pounds

    Hi guys,

    I want to lose ten pounds.

    Currently 195 BF is about 15% height is ~6 feet. Age 31

    Typical diet includes:

    Morning

    Breakfast: 6:30am
    Kashi Go Lean cereal (15 grams of protein)
    2 slices of whole wheat toast with strawberry jelly
    Big glass of skim milk
    Small glass of OJ
    multivitamin

    Snack: 10:00am-10:30am eggwhite (2) on whole wheat toast

    Lunch
    Footlong sub (subway or mr sub)
    Usually turkey with whole wheat bread, turkey, lettuce, mustard and green pepper

    Dinner
    large chicken breast or 3/4 pound of rainbow trout or salmon, fresh cooked veggies (beans, broccoli, carrots etc) sometimes a pasta or stirfry

    After dinner snacks
    I tend to eat a lot of cereal at night. Sometimes 2-3 bowls LOL! Also some fruit occasionally as well.

    Workouts are generally:

    speed (Max V and accel)
    tempo (12 x 120)
    rest
    speed (short Hills, 2 x 5 x 50 meter)
    tempo (10 x 100)
    weights
    Rest

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Cut the cereal out !!! Try to add some cyan pepper to your meals. Maybe you can shit off the ten pounds

    Seriously I cant see where you could cut more food out. Are you taking omega 3 oils? Maybe an early morning cardio session? I'd be starving if I was eating like that and Im a little guy!!!

    i agree, the thing that jumps out at me is all the cereal at night. presumably you're having milk with it which can have lots of sugar, plus if you're having high GI fruits.... more sugar. I would try shifting fruits and cereal to pre and post workout or early in the day, and tapering to veggies and protein in the evening, depending what your schedule is like.

    Use some EFA's and coconut milk.

    I work out at night after work so that is when I am usually starving and eat all the cereal

    I basically work a desk job for 10 hours a day and then run after work and on weekends.

    I can't sleep when I am hungry so cereal/milk helps me settle into sleep mode

    I am open to suggestions and would love to see someone write up a plan for me. I would post pics but am too shy

    You could try the SNAC proglycosin post work out drink. I have it after the gym then some ZMA. But guess what keeps me from pigging out... Going to bed early. When Im up late is when I go cooko for cocoa puffs and binge like crazy... I mentioned the fish oils b/c supposedly they help your metabolisim. I noticed the cuts in my abs more when I was taking them everyday. Maybe it was just me.

    But seriously have your shake and try not to to eat late.

    What's the problem Rupert?

    I need to trim 10 pounds off to hit weight I was competitive at 10 years ago when I ran. During training especially top speed work I feel the extra 10 pounds. (accel work is fine)

    What better place to ask about losing excess fat weight without losing muscle thank in the diet section?

    Cheers,
    Chris
