Fitness Minutes: 10,387

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.

I have only been south once for 2 days in the winter hahahaha but I did enjoy it. Everyone says Bavaria is like it's own country. We live by the Harz mountains and we have more often than not gray cloudy days. Seriously when it's sunny out they all leave work early and sit in the sun it's really funny.
