I am an older woman and it is not easy for me to lose weight anymore. High protein used to work for me but no more! I now know that it was not a smart idea to follow high protein diet as it impacts your bones (your health is more important then your looks!). However the damage is already done. I do not want to lose weight fast as i have mature skin with less elasticity
I started my diet yesterday. I intend to eat veggie only for two days a week
Breakfast – Bell Peppers (I think!). I told you, i have hypothyroid symptoms.. i cant remember what i had for breakfast yesterday but i know for sure i had some vegetable in raw form
Lunch – Fried Okra in Olive oil with garlic and cumin seeds
Dinner – Grilled Broccoli. I sprinkle salt on it and put it in toaster oven
Water – 8 glasses
Exercise: Bikram Yoga (As i have open pores, I was reluctant to try hot Yoga initially. However i have found that if I put mud mask right after the hot yoga, it closes my pores). Another benefit I felt was some tightening of skin. It could be my imagination but i feel the skin under my chin is somewhat more tight. My relatives who are much older than me who live in a hot and humid climate have a much better skin then me. I assume that the hot weather and sweating makes skin better.
Breakfast: Grilled Brocolli
Lunch – Salad with Lettuce, broccoli and Spinach. Some dressing.
Later afternoon – One avacado
Dinner – One avacado
Water – 6 glasses
exercise – Brisk walk for 30 min
