How I plan to do it

I have been putting thought into how I will accomplish my goal of losing weight. When I played soccer I was working out 2 hours a day for 5 days a week. Playing soccer felt fulfilling and motivated me to keep working out because I was part of a team. Now that I am no longer part of a team and I’m on my own I have to find my own way.

Many of us who try to start a work out plan fail to stick to it because previous commitments get in the way. We spend our time at work, school or with friends and family but we never spend time on ourselves. We think about what we want to do but we usually don’t go through with it. My plan this summer is to stick to a work out plan that works with my time restrictions however any work out plan won’t be useful unless eating habits change.

When you think about food there are three general sources where we derive our energy from. They are carbs, fat and protein. Technically speaking the consumption of carbs is not necessary and we can live without eating any carbohydrates. The only reason we do eat them is because they help us control our hunger.

Now I know you’re thinking that fat isn’t a good source of energy, but really if you focus on healthy fats you can help restart your body. If you do need to eat carbs the best time to eat them is in the morning. Eating slices of bread will help keep you full for a longer period. Throughout the day its best to eat lots of protein, veggies, and healthy fats from food like avocados and almonds.

Here are my rules:

  1. Only eat carbohydrates (bread, cake, rice, etc.) in the morning to help you feel full until Lunch.
  2. For Lunch and Dinner eat lots of protein (chicken, beef, etc.), healthy fats (avocado, nuts, fish, etc.), and leafy veggies (kale, spinach, cabbage, etc.)
  3. Cut out any items with sugar you didn’t personally add sugar too. (Soda, candy, granola bars, etc.)
  4. Create a work out plan that accommodates your schedule.

As long as your foods are as close to their natural state and you follow your work out plan you should be able to improve your health and maybe even lose weight. Let’s hope this actually works because I’m going to try it out. This is my idea of a work out plan.

  1. Hello Agent_Zero thank you for your comment! The reason why I believe we don’t need carbs like bread is because they are an empty source of energy. They keep us full in the long run but if your metabolism is slow carbs will not help you out if you want to lose weight. Especially if you consume them in every meal if your day. Healthy carbs like broccoli are a great source of energy that will help you stay energized and satisfied until your next meal. Protein is also very important because it helps build new cells in the body. Those cells work hard to grow your finger nails, hair, skin, etc. Eating healthy is about eating smarter. We need to eat carbs in moderation. That’s why carbs are best to eat in the morning because they can be digested throughout the day!

  2. Hey Ms. Cholocha I am really inspired by your motivation of wanting to make a physical and nutritional change in your life. I need to do the same I am starting somewhat of a new diet and workout plan myself. But I have a few questions. You say we don’t need carbs but so many people who are active eat carbs why is that? Anyways I wish you luck in your new lifestyle change and hope you reach your goals.
