    In the last month, I've been counting my calories, using going over as an excuse to guilt myself into eating less, but nothing's changed aside from the lesser calories. I use these apps, but nothing is really helping: Run Keeper, Lose It, Lift, GymPact. I'm 185lb at 5'10" and my main mode of exercise for the summer is cardio, running and swimming. All I'm trying to do is lose some belly fat. I don't have mean to get into the gym right now, nor to buy exercise equipment.

    Should I drop Carbs from my diet since that seems most prevalent in my calorie count? Is that a healthy way to lose weight? Or is Calorie restriction gonna work out at some point without dietary change necessary? Alternate App ideas?

    Thoughts? Opinions? Help?

    I am following a new tastier programme and I have taken my belt in three notches already after just three weeks!

    This is it!!!

    Basic stir-fry dish

    Tofu
    Broccoli
    Butter

    I season with fresh ginger, lemon, cumin, mustard seeds, tumeric, salt, MSG. With coconut milk, lime juice, sugar-free soy sauce, fresh coriander and fresh basil it becomes a Thai/Vietmanese dish.


    This is for making the Israeli dish Shakshuka, and I use one teaspoon of cumin in the olive oil, and thenceforth one teaspoon of tumeric in the tomato into which I scramble the six eggs before adding the block of crumbled feta:

    Olive Oil
    Feta Cheese
    Tinned Tomatoes
    Eggs


    Insalata Caprese

    Mozzarella Cheese
    Fresh Tomatoes
    Fresh Basil


    Fresh Lemons or PLJ Lemon (for seasoning, home-made lemonade)


    Treats with coffee!

    The Atkins choccie bar
    Erythritol Diabetic Dark Chocolate
    Double Cream
    Artificial Sweeteners


    Low-carb and delicious, and I am shrinking again! icon_biggrin.gif

    This is a ketogenic, vegetarian Atkins-style diet, and it has levelled my blood sugar levels out like nothing else, and I feel absolutely great.

    Google LCHF - use an app and limit your carb intake to <50 grams per day.
    Also look for a book just released "The Real Meal Revolution"
