exercise and diet

Hi

4 mths ago i started useing my exercise everyday for 40 min. i break up the workout to 2 - 3 times a day. i go 33km/phr level 3. i drink about 3lts of water a day and stick to a good enought diet special k cereal in the morning with low fat milk 2 slices of wholemeal brown cake and a cup of orange juice Dinner is usually chicken and veg with cup of milk. i don't eat potatoes. supper is salad with 2 slice sof brown bread or a boiles egg. in the evening i might have 2 more slices of brown bread and a cup of tea. i don't drink or smoke and don't take sugar i think i eat healthy enought i just can't understand why i haven't lost more weight. i think honestly i lost about 12lbs in 4 mths. could it be that i am gaining muscle. hope someone can help.

Re: exercise and diet

COuld be from too much carbs from all the bread. Six slices a day is a pretty good bit. And you need more protein.

Re: exercise and diet

Thanks for your reply.i was thinking the same about the bread. i suppose if i eat more fruit during the day. and eat more protein hopefully it will make a difference. thanks again for your reply.

Re: exercise and diet

IMO this is not a healthy rounded diet that will help you lose weight. Special K is pretty average, too much bread, orange juice is like liquid sugar, and your diet is lacking in protein, it's all carbs and not much else, if you want to lose weight this is not the way to eat.

Re: exercise and diet

Sounds to me like you've just reached a plateau... some people just find it much harder to loose weight than others... stick at it!
