Default Quick nutrition advice needed

So, Doc says I need to start an exercise regimen and cut carbs etc.Need to drop 25 lb, lower glucose and hypertension.
Medically Supervised workout is at 2:30 in the afternoon. Assume a 2 egg omelet, high fiber toast and 1 thin slice deli ham for breakfast- about 8:45, what should I have before workout? I'm thinking a high protein ensure and an apple about 1 hr before? Really would appreciate any suggestions for leaving the office and going to the gym.

What a great Gamecock weekend!

I have a protein bar, a fruit cup, and a bottle of water 45 minutes before i hit the gym. Yours sounds comparable
Good luck!

Take it slow. Eat 5-6 times per day. Make sure that whatever bar/shake you are using only has around 200 calories. I had gained a lot of weight cooking high density meals for Marie when she was on chemo. I had ballooned up to 212. I made it down to 206 fairly easy but was stuck there. I got this body monitor through my insurance company. Ended up costing me $120 and I am getting a year of the $15 monthly monitoring fee free. Since starting using it on 1-21 I am down to 197. I've been impressed with it. You may be able to take advantage of the discount even without having Cigna. Check it out here: http://www.bodymedia.com/site/landing/cigna.html

Many thanks, Yancey - how are you doing?

I'm trying to add more beans (white, lentil, black) into our diet and fewer potatoes for me. If I could do this with beer, wine during the week and scotch on the weekend, I'd be OK.

Frank, I have managed to use cauliflower to replace potatoes and cheese in certain recipes. Works well!

I can attest to this, as well.

Many are skeptical or hesitant about cauliflower, but if you use it with other ingredients properly, you'll barely be able to notice the dish has cauliflower at all.

I eat a spoonful of peanut butter and take an NO3 supplement about 30 mins before I work out. And you should take protein after you work out if you're trying to add muscle.

Cauliflower is a great carb replacement. Caulflower rice is easy. Just put it in processor and microwave it for 8 mins.

Like stated above, I've used it in potatoes, rice and even as a pizza crust.

Medically Supervised workout is at 2:30 in the afternoon. Assume a 2 egg omelet, high fiber toast and 1 thin slice deli ham for breakfast- about 8:45, what should I have before workout? I'm thinking a high protein ensure and an apple about 1 hr before? Really would appreciate any suggestions for leaving the office and going to the gym.

I actually presented a power point for corporate wellness a couple of weeks ago. When I find it, I'll send it to ya. Maybe provide a little more help.

I was doing a quasi-paleo thing for a while, where I cut out most grains, and legumes. I changed my breakfast regime to eliminate a lot of the carbs I was eating then. At first I had an energy drop, but once some weight came off, I could get by just eating an omelet in the morning, with broccoli and mushrooms, maybe some tamaters (or salsa, when they're out of season, like now). 2-3 hours later, I have a banana, and some birdseed (sunflower, usually) and the rest of the day varies, but I adhere to some of the general principles stated above. I workout regularly, and didn't have any real problem, except (like I said) at the beginning. Over a few months, went from 212 to 187, though I've back-slid a little, and I'm back up 6-7 lbs.

So you might try dropping the toast, for starters. You might also try walking, on days when you don't want to work out hard.

Cutting out the booze would make a big difference, but doesn't sound like you're willing to do that.
