Hello everyone. I am just starting this new way of eating and want to know if I am doing it right.
First a little background on myself. I am 27 years old, work full time and have a son, and started out monday morning weighing 264 pounds. My first goal is to get under 200 pounds. Prior to monday I could easily drink a 2 liter of coke in a day and ate whatever, whenever. That included candy, fast food and all junk food. I decided to quit drinking soda and eating all of that junk food and bought a lot of fruit, some veggies, tuna in water and lean ground turkey. Monday I ate a few strawberries, an apple, an orange, baby carrots, a few sliced cucumbers and a handful of grapes throughout the day. Lunch was a lean cuisine and dinner was a spring mix and spinach salad with half a chicken breast and light dressing. I also drank one cup of coffee with sugar free creamer and lots of water. Today I ate and drank about the same. For exercise I just walked 30 minutes after work. I have lost 3 pounds so far.
I was just wondering if this sounds like a good plan. Am I eating too much fruit or not enough of something? I am new to veggies and don't know of many that I like.
Sorry this was so long but I do appreciate any imput. Thank you in advance!
