Record Everything you Eat and Drink

Guidelines:
Guidelines: Keep a record of all the food you consumed. This helps you see how the food you eat affect your diary and your health. I will give you a pass on water. I drink so much water I don't always record it either, but with the exception of water-RECORD EVERYTHING!

"way off this week was trying a new diet"


Weeks 1 to 4

Keep your carbs at or below 50% (+/-2)

Guidelines:
Try to keep your carbs below 50%. Now that you see where your calories are coming from, concentrate on cutting back on your carbs if you need to. Look at your food diary from last week and see what you could do without. Some diets recommend 25% fat and 45% carbs. This would be acceptable also. This is just a guideline.

"way off this week was trying a new diet"


Weeks 1 to 4

Keep your fat at or below 20% (+/-2)

Guidelines:
Fat should never go over 20%. Now that you see where your calories are coming from, concentrate on cutting back on your carbs and/or fat. Look at your food diary from last week and see what you could do without or substitute. I use low fat or fat free cheese, nonfat or low fat milk, egg whites instead of always whole eggs, and low fat or fat free spreads and dressings. Try promise fat free spread if you need some butter on your toast!

Reward yourself!

Guidelines:
Do something special (only you need to know) for yourself. Buy a new pair of correctly fitting pants, properly fitting bra, new workout clothes, go see that movie you've been wanting to see, go out to dinner with friends to share your experience (remember to choose a place that has grilled items to choose from so you don't blow it!

Weeks 1 to 4

Exercise at least 5 days a week-minimum of 30 minutes

Guidelines:
Cardio-Do at least 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week (any exercise that gets your heart pumping). If you do 40 minutes 4 days a week that's fine too, but don't cram 150 minutes into one or two days. It is important to get that heart rate up as often as possible!

Do Toning Exercises at least 3 days a week for 15 minutes minimum

This could be weight lifting-get a 2-5 lb weight and do bicep curls during your favorite tv show! This would include Pilates, ab exercises, stretching, and there are many exercises you can do while sitting in a chair at work! Be creative and share what you are doing in the forum!
