Diet Plan

Question: Diet Plan? I am wondering if I can lose weight following this diet and exercise plan. I eat about 6 servings of whole grains, 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruits. I eat around 3 servings of meat, mostly egg, turkey, and chicken breast. I also eat 3 servings of dairy, mostly milk, fat free yogurt and a slice of cheese. I workout once a day by either going to the gym or running. And my job involves pushing carts for a grocery store. Will I lose weight.

Answer: More than likely. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water. I mean just plain water, at least 6-8 8oz. glasses (if not 12) per day. Make sure you're also splitting your meals up fairly equally, about 4-6 meals per day. (eat about every 3 hours.) I have done a lot of research regarding losing weight and gaining muscle over the years, as I was once very overweight. I am now at 10% body fat and weigh 230 pounds (6'1 tall). I keep myself this way by following these guidelines. The servings per day you explained sound pretty good. Good luck, you can do it!
