Hope this is the right place for this thread,
I've recently ended a long term relationship, and found myself with a lot of spare time on my hands, and a general downhearted feeling,
Anyway decided to use this constructively! So i started my change in diets bout 3 weeks ago, and a program to get back to generally good fitness,
Weighed myself 2 weeks ago and i was 248 lbs quite overweight! i'm now down to 235 lbs, and losing more every day , I do have a few concerns, thats one of the reasons i'm posting here, i'm also looking for any tips or advice in the area of diet, nutrition and fitness,
So on the diet, I decided to irridicate Carbs! from reading alot of these threads, they seem to be the worst group to be consuming when trying to lose weight, i was the prime carb offender, i'd have white bread for breakfat, lunch, with maybe noodles, and potatoes for dinner! so thats all changed now, i'm intaking mostly protein in the form of eggs for breakfast, Nuts for snacks, meat for dinner, with as many high fibre vegetables as possible.
On the fitness side of things, after breakfast i try do a full body strech, then 4 days of the week, round 12, i play squash for 45 - 60 mins, if its a short game like under 45 mins, i'll try jog for 15 - 30 mins, but my fitness is quite low so that involves a bit of walking,
After lunch then i'll try fit in some weights, 15 - 20 mins, with some streches, in the evening then i'll bring the dog on a 3-4 mile walk, roughly an hour,
I also started back soccer training last night, so thats gonna be 2hr sessions by 2 nights a week, found that quite difficult to keep up with the pace last night as my fitness is quite low, as said,
So one of my worries is, i can only run maybe a 1km or 2 before getting tired, would this be a result of the low carb intake?
any other tips on weight loss, building fitness, etc are more than welcome,
