I’ve been looking at changing my eating habits, not that it’s really unhealthy but just that it’s not entirely helping my fitness. I’ve been running three times a week since March and although i have lost a few pounds along the way not one ounce of body fat has come off. I tend to be quite carb sensitive in that anything that contains too much sugar (even something as simple as baked beans) soon has me dozing off. I think it’s this issue with carbs that hasn’t seen me lose any body fat. Although i try and eat healthily any sugars or excessive carbs in my diet are creating an insulin response which in turn is resulting in alot of those carbs being stored as body fat. So i am planning on moving to a higher protein diet with less carbs with most carbs being consumed post training only. I have followed this type of diet last year with good results, my body fat going from 28% down to 17%. I am currently back at 28% body fat and expect to lose about 1% per week. The diet will look something like the following.
Wake up: Protein shake with added wheatbran
Breakfast: cheese omelette with mayo , banana
Mid Morning: protein shake with added wheatbran
Lunch: Tuna mayo (no bread)
Mid Afternoon: Egg mayo, protein shake with added wheatbran
Dinner: Chicken with spring greens
