Recently I've decided to switch up my workout routine because I am stuck at that last 10 pounds. I am wondering should I also switch up my food? I have been eating the same breakfast/lunch/snacks for the past year...
Breakfast: Kashi granola bar, cup of coffee, handful of almonds 340 cal.
Snack: banana 140 cal.
Lunch: 1 cup of dry oatmeal (makes a huge bowl) 300 cal
Snack: fruit or string cheese 80 cal
Then I workout and go home to eat dinner... and usually that leaves me with 800 calories or so to eat to reach 1200 + what I burned from my workout.
So, might be a dumb question, but does your body adapt to the same foods? Any suggestions?
Yes - switching up your routine will help keep the body guessing. :)
Also - it's good to get used to eating other foods so that when you're thrown into an unplanned eating out situation - you are comfortable picking healthful low cal items on the menu. :)
Good luck on that last 10lbs! :)
you definately need to make some changes to your diet!
Mix it up in the morning: egg white omelet and add lots of fresh chopped veggies (you really need to step up the veggies), muesli and yogurt, fresh fruit with yogurt, english muffins topped with no added sugar jam + chopped berries or banana
Snacks should be protein packed, so peanut butter with fruit and veg or cheese on craqckers with veg etc
Lunch should incluse lean protein (chicke, fish, tofu) carbs (rice, wrap, whole wheat bread, beans) and lots of ...... VEGETABLES!
Same goes for dinner.
Make it exciting!
Good luck on losing those last 10lbs
