I’m currently trying to lose 60 lbs. (I weigh 250 right now). So, I’ve put myself on a 2,000 calorie diet. I eat a banana, an orange, and some pears for breakfast, a sensible, but large, lunch (my biggest meal of the day) usually some salad, (no or lite dressing), some low-fat foods of various types, depending on what’s available, then a Slim Fast shake for dinner with more fruit.
I also have taken to exercising by walking two miles a day, every other day. (There is a waking track literally right around the corner from my house). On the days I’m not walking, I’m using a Power Rider or doing some other physical activity to get my heart rate up.
I started this diet about two weeks ago and I’ve lost 6 lbs. so far. So, I’ve got a long way to go, but I know I’ll get there.
