go to last post
In the past, before I go married, I was able to get from 300lbs to 180lbs and stay that way for a long, long time. But then family life came along and BAM: am almost back to where I started. This time I plan to keep it off.
One of the ways I'm working to reduce my weight is by drinking a fresh veggie/fruit smoothie for both breakfast and dinner, followed by a dinner with smaller portions. I am interested to see what you all think of the following:
Basic Smoothie Recipe (2 14oz servings (breakfast/dinner))
-1 1/2 Bananas
-1 cup of fresh baby spinach
-1/2 cup of skim milk
-1 cup of oatmeal
-1/2 cup of carrots
-1/2 cup of broccoli
-1 cup of various fruits like strawberry, mango, peach
-1 scoop (prolly 1/3 cup) whey protein powder
-2 tablespoons of Fiber-Sure
I take the following supplements (except for Men's Heart Health with I take once a day) once at breakfast, and then again at night:
I also take 2 1000mg fish oil caps, 1 100mg COQ10, and Potassium Glutamate. in the morning and then all again at bed.
I'm pretty good at sticking to things like this. I'm not new to making healthy smoothies, but want to get feed back on how healthy this specific recipe might be. I feel that it's got plenty of fresh veggies, plenty of fruit, good amount of fiber, some dairy and some protein. Also feel that the supplements are good to help lower my blood pressure.
Just wanting to get some feedback to see what you all think? Should I add, should I subtract? Are carbs too high, too low? What can I do to make this a better part of my life.
Of course, am also exercising, but that's for the other forums.
