Leaving my wife a widow at such a young age doesn’t seem like too nice of a thing. So bragging about what I’m not going to do but intend to do would be rather unwise, I think. Food Network’s Alton Brown last year put a show on explaining how he lost 50 pounds eating exactly what he wanted to eat. (see episode ‘Live and Let Diet’) With this as our guide we begin this year with very different eating habits along with a modest exercise plan intended on focusing on cardio and muscle toning.
Breakfast of Champs:
Vitamin and protein dense foods are what will be on the menu for
the rest of the year and so far breakfast was quite the treat. A 300+ calorie oatmeal concoction that covered my whole grain, fruit, dairy, and vitamin c for the day!!!
Below is a picture of the ingredients I used, which proved to be rather filling! I thought I was going to need more, but boy was I wrong. I think that Alton guy has somethi
ng here. =^D
What I Used:
1 Serving of Oats, 1 Serving of Strawberries, 1/2 Serving of Peaches, 1/2 Serving of Skim Milk (with 1/2 cup of water), 1 Tablespoon of Splenda, & a Dash of Salt (to taste). = 325 Calories and a very full stomach!
Now, I'm not a Doctor, Nutritionist, or a Personal Trainer. Please know that this is simply a blog series about my journey on how I'm getting back in shape! I would love any stories or advice anyone may have! Have a great New Year AR.
