Everyone at one point in their life has been unhappy with their body. And when we are desperate, we try to find the easiest ways to drop the pounds, most of often people result to starvation techniques or slimming products.
Ever since I started to loose weight, people would always ask me how I did it and what did I eat(especially with them knowing that I am a really choosy eater). I guess its because a diet with less vegetables is sort of unheard of. Here is how I dropped 25 pounds in 4 months and the journey still continues! Please do keep in mind that while doing this, I did exercise almost 2 hours a day 5-6 days a week. I made a post about it before, link here!
If you have read my blog before, you would know that I am no nutritionist or medical professional. What I am is a picky eater, meat lover and a creature of habit. Did I ever mention I was a vegetable hater up until 3 years ago?
When making a meal plan, I considered what works best for my blood type and what kinds of food I like because it would make it easier for me to follow it religiously and I feel less deprived.
One thing that really motivated me at the beginning was the people I surrounded myself with(Shout out to Living Fit Wellness Studio), they taught me simple rules of thumb on what to eat.
In making my meal plan, I definitely considered what non-processed food I liked and what food worked well with my blood type(A). This is a link that shows what types of food are beneficial to my body and what aren’t, link here! It basically says that the only meat I should be eating is Chicken and Fish(especially), everything else should be avoided(sad face). Being blood type A, it is encouraged to be a vegetarian but TBH, I don’t know if I can do that! I also took into consideration that to loose weight efficiently, I had to eat about 1600 of calories daily.
So here it is! This is more or less what diet I have been following for the past month or so. Note that I don’t follow this religiously because I do also eat out but when I do, I usually pick the more healthy option or something I know that’ll be more beneficial for me.
Do keep in mind that, you have to portion your food! I found it helpful to count my calorie intake. I was told that with my starting body mass, I was allowed to have about 1600 calories a day to see your weight loss result efficiently.
