I'm going to post my diet log here on the forum, I would really appreciate some feedback on my eating and why I'm gaining weight from what I'm eating, you'll also see some comments where other people have commented on my log as well.

If you could please help that would be great

Re: Gillian's Diet Log

Current weight - 122.4kg
Goal Weight - 60-65kg

I know that I can do this, I've done it before via Weight Watchers and got down to 86kg. I'm going to try and follow Paleo as best I can, if not then I will go back to what I know which does work really well for me, is Weight Watchers. Now I just have dig in, stay motivated and driven to achieve my ultimate goal. I'm going to try and break it down into 5kg mini goals

July 7th

This is a from a board member named Dan

Good on you for taking the hint.

Weight watchers is **** quality food. Its not just about your weight, its about your health and wellbeing and thats why we prescribe paleo. Eating portions of rice and a bread roll is doing you more harm than good - its not about counting calories.

Stop allowing the negativity to get in your head. WW is not a long term strategy for health and wellness. None of us really care what you weigh, we care about your health and your Fran time. You will do this and do it easier than you think. Draw a line and just do it.

This reply is from me

Thanks Dan, I'm going to give it a go, I'm actually looking for some paleo recipes on the net, and found some that seem to be really good, like Mediterrian Chicken, and White Fish with Macademia, so I'm looking foward to trying some of them out. The only thing I'm a bit worried is lunch, cause I usually have a sandwhich and hence the carbs - shouldn't have that know, is it basically salad is the option for lunch?

Its not about "the carbs". You need carbs.
You just dont need ridiculous amounts of them and you dont want them from sources that mess with your health.

Subway make great salad bowls, multigrain bread is not good for you, and is hindering weight loss amoung other things.
Also, looking at what you have posted, your eating nowhere near enough food, and certainly not enough protein.

Thanks for that Dan, I'll definately have to try the salad bowls next time. I just general find that I'm not really that hungry in between, I might just have an apple or a banana or something, but generally I don't each much in between meals.

What would you suggest that my eating plan should look like?

He replied with:

Hi all, first diet log, create your own diet log similar to your training log.

Legend because im lazy will be
B = Breakfast
L = Lunch
D = Dinner
S = Snack
PWO = Post workout
O3 = Omega 3 - at the moment I take ethical nutrients hi strength liquid, 5 grams = 3 net grams of DHA and EPA

B = 2 pieces of bacon, big sandwich style bacon, I soak this in water for about 20 mins before cooking to get rid of as much salt etc
Handful of blueberries and strawberries and a handful of nuts (Macadamias and Walnuts mainly).
O3 - multivitamin
1 cup black coffee.

S = Tuna and apple and more nuts

L = 2 cans Tuna on a salad, my salads are huge and take me about 30 minutes to munch through. Saturated in Olive oil for fat and flavour. Awesome. O3

S = Homemade jerky, nuts, fruit (melons)
1 black coffee

PWO = Approx 100 grams sweet potato and beef jerky with some more nuts and an apple on the way home.

D = Slow cooked pork hock (awesome again), mashed sweet potato and broccoli, olive oil drizzled again for flavour and fat. O3

Might have a snack before bed, not sure.
I like to eat.

Also Gill, you should be having also 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight until you hit the desired body comp. You should be eating at least every 3-4 hrs. Its a lot of food, treat it like a wod, get it done.
