Re: my routine for exercise and eating. is it excessive? - April 10th 2016, 05:53 AM

Hi Cheyenne.

Five hours of exercise is far too excessive and there is no way that you will have the energy to do all of that if you are eating so few calories.

An hour of exercise a day is sufficient, even if you are doing it to lose weight.

Now to your meal plan...

A smoothie for breakfast is fine, but fruit is largely water and fibre and doesn't contain many calories, so I would advise you to add other ingredients. These can include yogurt, protein powder, peanut butter, avocado and/or oats, and seeds such as flax, chia and/or hemp. More ideas can be found on the Internet.

A lot of people do eat a light lunch. However, a vegetable salad on it's own is only really good for a snail (particularly if it's mainly leaves), so it's a good idea to add some protein such as fish, chicken or hard boiled eggs, or dip the salad vegetables in houmous/hummus.

I understand that you are wanting to lose weight, but it's important to do it in a healthy way and ensure that the body is receiving all the nutrients it needs. Punishing yourself by eating so little and working out so much is not a good idea because you will only end up exhausted and unable to maintain the routine for more than a few days.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.


Be kind to yourself.
