I need to change my eating habits, but I'm not too sure how to go about doing so.

I just reviewed what I eat in a typical day, and it seems that its mostly carbohydrates... I don't know how to cut some of them out, since it seems like if I'm not eating them, I'm hungry all the time. However, I need to cut some out to help me lose some body fat -> exercise isn't giving me the results I need.

Any advice?

Re: Carbs

"Carbs" covers such a broad expanse, it would be helpful to know more specifically what you eat. (Are you getting some protein at every meal?)

Your in the same boat as me.I have started using ****** its free and you enter what you eat and it has a chart to tell you how many carbs and other things you have had to eat or you can do as I do and enter some of things I plan on eating that day.

I am using the 1200 calorie plan which is you eat up to 1200 on a day you dont work out and 1400-1500 on a work out day.My doctor just said you can stick with 1200 but try not to go over 1400 and work out 30 minutes a day.I use the low GI veggies and fruits that are on south beach.I like it I've only done this a few weeks and I am done 7 pounds.And make sure you take a multi vitiamin.I take from wal mart One source Pure Performance.I had NO energy and this plan has put a peep in my step now I dont sit around all day.

This is how the chart reads for 1200 caloires
protein 75-100g
carbs 120-135
total fat 40
sat.fat 13g
sugar 30g

1500 calories
protein 94-125g
carbs 150-169
total fat 50g
sat.fat 17g
sugar 38g

You can enter these limits on ****** and after or before you eat it will show on a chart where you stand with your daily intake.I enter somethings I think I want to eat and I see its over my daily limits so I back off and pick something else.You can a fudge pop or fat free pudding at night.I just couldnt do south beach and atkins.I couldnt think straight on those plans I need my carbs to think.Good Luck.
I hope this helps.

Re: Carbs

Hello, The only thing that I would do is to change the 2 bagels to 1 bagel, and I think you'll see a big difference. Also you could have more a variety of vegies at night instead of having a salad every night...Maybe one night a salad, another night string beans, another night brussel sprouts, etc. I am assuming that you are eating lean meats and not the heavy duty fatty stuff.
