Weight Loss - Unsure of Diets
I've always been rather lazy, spent most of my time on the computer and eating junk, and it's all caught up to me. I'm trying to work off years of 'abuse', but not sure how to go about it.
I started off at almost 13 stone. I'm around 5 foot 5 inches, so that's obese.
I'm down to around 12 now, but I think that's mainly from fluids. I'm kinda stuck at the moment. I'm trying a few different things, but I'm not sure if they're the right way to go about it.
From what I understand the low carb diet allows you to eat some rather enjoyable stuff, such as bacon, burgers, etc - is this correct? Is this okay even though the foods are fatty?
I'm trying to combine a low carb diet with a restricted calorie diet. At the moment I know I'm not eating enough, as I feel quite hungry. As a typical example, today:
- Around 1130 calories eaten
- 320mg of Cholesterol, which apparently is bad
- 72g of protein, which my weight tracking program says is bad?
On top of the above, I've also got around 500-ish calories burned off with exercise, whereas usually I don't do much of that.
I'm wondering if I'm skimping on calories a bit too much due to the exercise. I'm also wondering if people can advise if I'm correct in thinking with low carb diets, I can eat a bunch of stuff I enjoy, such as red meat.
Can anyone give me any recommendations or suggestions on what to change?
Thank you for your time :-)
