I have stuck to the same eating plan ( a good breakfast, slim fast for lunch, fruits as snacks, and a bowl of special K for dinner) and exercise routine (lots of cardio, not so much use of weights) for months
How close to your goal weight are you? How close to your goal body
? They really aren't the same thing at all. Whether you are male or female, young or old, my advice would be the same. Time for a change! Ditch the Slim Fast and Special K. Eat some lean protein, some complex carbs such as beans, brown rice, sweet potato, 100% whole wheat bread or tortilla, loads of green vegetables. Keep doing some cardio, but start doing some weight training!
. Especially for guys, muscle is the greatest fat burning gift that you can give yourself! No need to be a body builder, but cardio alone will not build a great body. The other advantage of putting on some muscle is that you can EAT more without gaining weight. When you start, you may plateau on the scale, but the mirror and your clothes will tell a different story. To build muscle, you really do need to eat more and especially some protein.
Congratulations on your journey and the new you
