Mamato4kiddos's own diet


 Summary:

I wake up at 5am ( this is not required ) so that I can have my peace and quiet before the rest fo the hosue wakes up. I walk or run on the treadmill for 30 minutes then do situps and light weights for the other 30 minutes. I do not eat any breakfast until I am done working out. However I do finish a 16.9 oz bottle of water by the time I am done, and usually have another with breakfast. My breakfast includes fruit and usually cottage cheese or lean potein of some kind. These foods give me a good boost of energy. If I get hungry before lunch ( which I usually don't ) but if I do I will have some veggies ( celery, carrots etc.. ). For lunch I will have a small salad, a chicken breast,tuna, or chicken pitas are great too! I add some fruit or veggies to that too. I usually don't snack between lunch and dinner, but if so same rules apply, fruits/veggies anything low calorie.. For dinner I make a normal dinner for my family even spaghetti with rolls etc.. I just eat a smaller portion then they do this way I am not deprived at all.

About / History

I started this "diet" in August of 2006 when I weighed almost 190, by December of 2006 I had lost 58 pounds and was 130. I fluctuated up to 145 when I hurt my knee and couldn't exercise but am back on it again to get to my goal weight of 120!
