well awesome that you excercise and sing! me too! I hike about 15 miles and perform on a weekly basis, so there ya go. As for the food part of it, theres nothing really SPECIFIC that youd need to follow(i.e. types of proteins/grains, colours of fruits/veggies, etc.), but this is what I used to get me down from 260(yes I was one BIG chick, lol) to now 139(only 10 lbs to go!)

proteins= 2oz/serving
grains= 4oz/serving(or 1 “piece” if something like bread or a roll)
fruit= 6oz/serving(or 1 piece if such as an apple or orange)
veggies= 8oz/serving

all meals have a grain and a protein, breakfast adds 2 fruit, lunch adds a fruit & veggie, dinner adds 2 veggies. A morning snack is a grain and protein and an afternoon snack is a fruit & veggie.

I know, I know, this sounds pretty complicated, but its easier done than said. Basically what it comes out to is…

think of your food groups in types and cups/day.
Groups= veggie ,fruit, grain, & protein
Cups= 4,3,2, & 1
In that order. Hope I helped. =)

If you have any questions feel free to message me. Im tellin ya this is awesome once you find your groove. Ok, Ill shut up now, lol.

What do you think? Answer below!

    well im not the best and its hard for me too, even though im 10 pounds over weight………… you should cut your meals in half, so a 4 chicken with sauce would be 2 chickens and sauce. Also eat when your hungry, if your thinking about food just ignore it unless your stomach is really weak and hurting in a hungry way. Try to have snacks when your hungry not meals 😉 like carrots which keep you busy especially shredded carrots take me like 2 days to finish because its a lot of chewing and best of all, calories are really low.

    That is my current diet and i been on it for 2 weeks, but you need to forget the urge of eating all of the meal just half unless if your hungry 🙂

    It sounds like your the same as most of us and even when you have a good diet plan you can find it hard to stick to.

    I found that working out how many calories are recommended that I eat on average per day and what level of exercise I have to do to burn off any excesses really helped. Obviously I try to eat a balance diet not just fill my calorie quota with sweet and fatty foods. lol

    I’ve found that keeping a blog has helped my stick with it. I know that almost every day I write what I did for the day and it really helps me stick to what I’ve planned. IPlus I’ve made some good friends and we keep each other going. I keep mine at extrapounds.com. You might find it helps with staying with it too.
