Isn't it funny how I have searched and searched for other forums on the subject as reliable as this one is.. and didn't find one.. and the thought crossed my mind that hey! why not ask here... I am positive people have advice to give on the subject..
I'm not looking for a strict diet plan more just small changes to my current "diet." I am a fairly healthy person. I'm in the military and am very very active, exercising an hour a day, 5 days a week. I try my hardest to eat well, but I love food, lol, so I slip.
Basically it's this.. I am deployed right now for the next 7 months. I am not unhappy entirely with my weight and figure, however, I have some small complaints, of which I know are fixable, but I am not as knowledgeable as I would like to be on the subject. I would ideally like to lose about 15 pounds. More so in my mid section/love handles.
Like I said I work out regularly, and I eat regular meals 3 times a day with 2 small snacks in between.. The chow hall here is all I have so food choices are not entirely my choice. I do have the ability to make sandwiches with what I think is wheat bread
and salads. I generally try to eat fruit for my morning snack and usually a cliff bar, or a healthy single size cereal without milk. meals honestly vary on whatever is being served so that's the hard part. and I generally limit my desserts to once or twice a week.
Agian, I don't need a meal plan, I just know that working out alone doesn't really work for the midsection, a lot has to do with diet.. of which I am working on.. just looking for people's opinions and advice from others that know a little more on the subject. Thanks and advance!
