I’m now two weeks into this. Like I said in a prior post, I am not even considering anything weight loss until I get down to my previous all time high of 281.
But, today, I had to get some skin cancer taken care of . The nurse said I should probably get to my primary care doctor to talk about adjusting my blood pressure medication. ADJUSTING IT BY POSSIBLY REDUCING IT!
So, far, just two weeks of exercise (8 crossfit classes and a couple of 2 miles walks in between) and adjusting my eating habits are already having an effect on my health. Don’t get me wrong – I am still a load. But, this (whether they adjust it or not) is motivation for me.
The plan I am on for eating is three meals a day – basically 8 oz of protein and a cup of veggies and 8 grams of fats, and two protein shakes in between. It’s coming out, generally, to 1500-1650 calories per day. Probably low for someone my size, by I haven’t been hungry. The only change to that is the meal immediately after a workout, the veggies are switched with 50 grams of carbs.
I think this particular direction may be the right one for me!
