No eating at all after 8pm (anyone remember Gremlins)
Minimum of 30 minutes exercise everyday (as simple as a walk)
Dinner cannot exceed 1000 calories
Alcohol can only be consumed 1 night a week
Do NOT skip any meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
I am going to use a Diet Meal Replacement Shake with a high protein content, fresh chicken, beef, and fish along with the usual fruit and vegetables. Cheese and nuts in moderation.
I am going to read the label! Avoid low fat items and look for reduced fat, low carb, high protein. Anything that is more than 2 grams of sugar per serving will not go in the shopping trolley.
I own a dog and a bike so I have two obvious options. I will at minimum do a 30 minute dog walk every day. I am also lucky to have a gym in the building I work in so, I may even use that from time to time but I would prefer to get into a home training regime with something like a Power Band and if I can find the time try some yoga!
According to the internet my calorie expenditure should be a max of 2900 per day for my age and you need to burn an extra 500 calories to lose approx. 1lb of fat.
