Fitness Minutes: 10,644

My Goals:
June 14,2014
Summer 5% Challenge

Exercise: I will weight train three times a week, and continue the walking I do now.

Diet: see below

My Program:
I went to an italian dietician and she gave me a restrictive low-carb diet. I've learned that restrictive diets really work for me, because they eliminate all the guess work. And this time it's working well- I've lost 14 pounds in 6 weeks and the scale is still going down!

Breakfast: 2 slices of wheat bread with a) cheese (ricotta, cream cheese, etc.) or b)
jam or c) slice of turkey or ham or prosciutto

Lunch: red meat, white meat, fish or insalata di mare (a cold fish salad, usually with octopus and calamari)
vegetables -all you can eat, or desire to eat

1 carbohydrate lunch a week (100grams of pasta or rice or two slices of bread etc.)

Dinner: white fish, chicken or turkey (without skin), tuna, prosciutto, eggs, cheese
vegetables –again, all you can eat

Snacks: 2 yogurts a day (eaten whenever you want, even for dessert or before bed). The low–in-fat variety.
Fruit –as much as you want but not with meals


Personal Information:
I am an American married to an Italian living in Italy.


Other Information:
What do you want to know?

Oh Sarah, just read your feed, about the problems you're experiencing. I guessed wrong in the note I wrote in my goodie. So sorry you're having trouble and hope things get better soon. Please take care.
