I am embarrassed to post this, but I am a woman who is getting into lifting and I am way too heavy. 5'7", 185 lbs. Definitely have a long way to go. I've been doing the following diet for a few months, but I notice if I have a weekend where I deviate (ex: I had steak/french fries and wine this weekend), I can quickly gain back several lbs and they don't go away! I have such a hard time with weight.
2 eggs scrambled with turkey
Green juice (kale, cucumber, ginger, parsley, lemon)
cabbage salad with walnuts and a little raw cheese
protein shake with 1/2 frozen banana
lean protein, veggies, sweet potato
a little dark chocolate
I agree there is room for improvement here, but I have to be careful because if I cut EVERYTHING I will fall off the wagon for sure. Guess I don't have great willpower. And I have bad cravings. I could easily eat way more than this (I have a brutal time with appetite control).
