So starting tomorrow I’m calorie counting..
I’ve got a preliminary 4 week programme to start with which reduces my calorie count each week and has a 120g minimum protein intake per day. Shout out to Luke Hopper https://www.instagram.com/lukehopperpt/ for the help and programme to assist me with this new challenge. Check out his page for nutrition/PT etc.
I’m feeling confident but also a little apprehensive about taking this on; my concern is getting enough protein into my diet and not falling foul to snacks! As I mentioned before I do not have the ability to say no to food but I’m going to have to be super strict with myself.
A couple of tools that have been recommended to help are myfitnesspal which I’ve used previously so luckily know how to work; it’s a calorie/macro/exercise diary. The great thing about this little app is it counts everything for you – all you have to do is scan the barcodes on food packets or type it into a search bar and it provides you with all the info. Tracking macros has never been easier.
I’ve also ordered myself some diet whey protein powder to make sure I am getting enough to hit my targets. Thanks to https://threebrits.com for the assistance there. The website I used is http://m.myprotein.com/sports-nutrition/impact-diet-whey/10530657.html and I’ve gone for chocolate mint as my first flavour of choice. A little tip if you do go ahead and purchase anything there is a 15% discount code which I successfully used: extra15
To get the ball rolling I took all my measurements today ready to kick it all off tomorrow – this included waist, thighs, arms, bum and weight – I will be doing this on a weekly basis but mainly using the mirror to judge my results.
Let’s do this..
