While I was drinking alot of water and eating less fat, I was eating alot of bread and processed foods. No vitamins, no veggies except a salad....
Recently I changed it. Now I drink alot of this True Blueberry tea stuff, I eat a 1/4 cup of blueberries every day. I eat a bowl of cereal in the morning with 2 percent milk, usually a whole grain cereal. For lunch it's usually a sandwich I made at home, or a hot pocket with baked lays and a salad with light dressing. I also forgot to mention I drink a couple glasses of 100 percent oj in the morning as well.
For dinner it's usually either one baked chicken drum stick (8 grams of fat) or a baked salmon (for the omega 3s), a TON of broccoli (2-3 servings), and some brown rice.
I will eat before bed occassionally, but not on the days I don't work out and it's usually right after I just finished working out. Usually a half bowl of cereal.
I drink 3-4 cups of blueberry tea (high antioxidants) a day, and I do my best to get 8 cups of water.
I was told my recommended fat intake was 79 grams on lighter activity days and 85-86 on days I exercise. I'm a 21 year old male. I run a photo lab so I stand and walk alot at work, and I try to be somewhat active outside.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
Oh I also forgot to mention on that bowl of cereal in the morning I throw on two tablespoons of flaxseeds for omega 3s.
