Hi All! Thanks so much for responding! What I do to burn 800 calories is an hour doing full body weights and an hour on the elliptical at 10 or 11 resistance and 10 incline. I don't trust the elliptical readings but I do put in my age and weight every time and that alone says I burn 800 calories just doing the hour of elliptical so I'm kind of averaging w/ the weights and cardio. This is what I eat:
B: protein shake or eggs, 1/2 c oatmeal w/ splenda, cinnamon
S: 22 Almonds
L: Salad w/ 2 tbs regular dressing, 4 oz chicken, 1/2 c brown rice, 1 c veggies
Mid afternoon meal: 4 oz chicken, 1/2 c brown rice, 1 c veggies (my hubby and I make up pre-made tupperware dishes of this every 4 or so days so we can just grab and go)
Post workout: Protein Bar or some combination of carbs and protein
Dinner: Usually the 4 oz chicken or fish, veggies.....either frozen or something like spaghetti squash, and sometimes brown rice.
I don't mind the monotony of my diet at the moment. We switch it up once in awhile. :)
I am going to try and do just 45 min on the cardio this week and see if that helps...that cuts out about 250 or so calories burned for me......
