I just started going to the gym a week ago, so bear with me. I'm trying to get rid of my (modest) belly before it gets out of hand.
I promised myself that going to the gym for an hour every other day is quite a step up and I wouldn't bother with paying attention to what I eat or drink. But of course I'm starting to because I don't want it to be for nothing.
So I just ignored a box of Pringles (500 kcal/100 grammes) and took some bananas home. But apparantly that is still 130 kcal a piece. Which is too bad, because after 20 minutes of torture on the bicycle it said I'd burned off a little over 300 kcal. So I guess my whole workout is like 500 kcal (I took it easy after the bike-thing).
Basically, my question is: all that trouble for 3.5 banana? That's it? Kind of disappointing. I'm going to have two cans of beer too. Probably a lot of calories, but hey I used to have a few beers every night without the work-out so this must be a step up...
Also, just for my own reference framework: I ate a plate of low-fat milk with wholegrain cereal, two kiwi's, one banana, 0.5 liters of plain activia yoghurt, a white bun with Dutch cheese and salami, and a plate of nasi goreng with saté sauce today. And drank a liter of reasonably light Almaza (Lebanese) beer. Rest only water. Ehm... anyone any idea what that adds up to? I'm just asking
PS: now that I'm asking I might as well be precise: nasi plate consisted of 150 grams of rice, 150 grams of chicken, 150 grams of fresh green beens, half an onion, garlic, pepper (all fresh) and a 125 kcal mix. And a little bag of the saté sauce with 125ml water
