Seems like these days everyone is getting healthy at least my social media streams are constantly being updated by gym visits … diet tips and all sorts of links. Well I’ve been trying constantly the last few months to kick start a diet and well it hasn’t been working. Hence I’m about to make this blog post get it out in the open so to speak and make me realise I need to just do it.
It’s not really a case that I’m exactly unhealthy I get a lot of exercise at least I got for a few km of a walk every day. I am however prone to sitting in the home office day in / day out and when stressed this leads to all sorts of food being consumed. A can of coke here (though in my case it tends to be a 2 litre bottle) a pack of crisps there .. and I’m talking the 100 – 200gramme variety … being a bit too busy to cook properly or just to cook for myself and I’ll end up throwing on a pizza. A pizza it should be noted has pretty much all the calories I should be having in a day and I’ll happily polish one off for dinner. Living above a bakery doesn’t help either and it’s very easy to go grab a butter laden pastry or another baguette.
So I’m finally putting this blog post online. I need to cut out the crap and get back to eating healthy. From a few of the meals I post I really should be eating healthier. For me it’s mainly going to be about cutting down on the coffee with sugar .. red bull or similar energy drinks and all the other crud I pack into myself. Thinking about it I’ll generally relax with a beer or two in the evening to boot add in a few more at the weekend and ouch!. Definitely not a healthy mix at all and it’s all pushing up my daily calorie intake to a constant putting on weight mode.
I’m currently at 92 Kilos and I feel bloated … around the tummy especially some pants feel a bit tight not to mention my suit and while I’d love to think they’ve just shrunk in the wash I probably can’t blame it on that completely.
So no doubt there are lots of diets out there but the one I’m going to try for now is http://mydukandiet.com/dieting/attack-phase.html. Basically the first week is about cutting out carbs (for 5 – 10 days in the attack phase) and having lots of protein and well I think I can live with that. I’ll give it 5 days at any rate.
I should be on 2600 calories a day. Immediately by giving up having 2 beers a night = around 300calories each so that’s 600 calories which = wow … just wow. A pizza looking at the boxes is anywhere from 1500 – 2500 on the ones I’m seeing at any rate and I probably do that one day a week.
Sugar in my Coffee … that pastry … bottle of coke (1.5litre) seems to be 600 calories … those biscuits or that bar of chocolate … EEK .. I’m starting to think I should be dead or something with what I’ve been putting into myself :D
So it starts … ( well it started yesterday with a pretty low carb diet )
