M4MMC's Journal, 23 February 2011

Received my book today the eat clean recharged diet by Tosca Reno, I've read the first 40 pages and it's quite different to what I thought and I think I'll be incorporating each point separately or I will get fed up!

I also got my new scales which are great apart from that they make me heavier than I was but I wieghed myself on my old ones and unfortunately they said the same. Whether I have put on that 1.2 kg ARGHHHHH or if it's just that I don't normally weigh myself on a Wednesday at that time...................we shall see. So I've recorded my new weight, it also shows my fat %, muscle % and hydration- these were worse than I thought as well, quite surprised I've not taken to the chocolate almonds in the cupboard! Fat % 29.4 YIKES, when I calculated it on line it said 23.4 so that was a surprise and not a good one. My hydration was 51.4 which is on the mid range of what it should be and muscle % was 32.3 but I've no idea if this is bad~good~or average..............DOES ANYONE OUT THERE KNOW PLEASE..

So today I-m starting with my smaller meals more often, also going to try to keep food intake to 2000 cals and exercise a extra 500 in an attempt to lose 0.5 of a pound each week.

Definately think I'd find this easier if I was only feeding myself but I'm not so better just get on with it and keep smiling and leave the chocolate almonds in the cupboard!

Eating clean is great, but don't try to do everything at once. Concentrate on whole foods. Incorporate things like eating 5 or 6 smaller meals. Work around the foods you enjoy. There are lot's of recipes and there is a book about family meals. You may have to adjust your calories as you go. I would google the thing about percentage of muscle. But I know it will be a little different for each person. Men have a lot more muscle than women. Women who work out have more muscle than women who don't. Take it one step at a time. Change takes time.
