The Diet

Hey Everyone. Like a lot of women I have that invincable pouch on my stomach that does NOT go away. Everyone says I need to diet and excersize. I excersize regularly with at least 30 minutes cardio and I lift on almost all the other machines. I was wondering how much and what foods should I eat? I'm going to college full time so I eat in a cafeteria with a lot of choices. Could you give me an idea of what to eat? My goal is to lose 10 - 15 lbs. Right now I am at 140 and i am 5'8. Thanx.

Re: The Diet

Try to eat as natural as you can. Lean meats, salads, veggies, fruits, nuts and such. Avoid white, starchy foods, saturated fats, and sugars like bread, white rice, sweets, cheese, most beef, and fried *anything*. And make an effort to get enough protein. That will help a lot. At least one lean protein food with each meal, be it eggs, jerkey, soy, chicken, etc. And no soda. Make sure you drink as much water as you can.

Re: The Diet

Chicken and turkey _breast_ specifically. The other parts are higher in fat content. Ham tends to be pretty fatty, most beef cuts have a lot of fat, but some are alright. Deli meats are okay, but there is so much "other stuff" and the protein is a pretty poor quality that you should only it that if you're in a bind or if it's all that available (or just once in a while as a snack or treat). Jerkey is great but very high sodium. Fish is fantastic because even the fatty fish (salmon, mackerel) is good fats, so it's still healthy. Canned tuna is great because it has 37g protein, 1g fat, and is maybe 50 cents a can. Fast, cheap, easy.

Re: The Diet

If you do that every day, that's fine. Eventually you'll want to increase time or intensity because your body will become adjusted to the workout (become more fit) so you'll need to work harder to get to the same heart rate.
