I eat a lot of fruits. My favorites are bananas, strawberries, apples, mangoes and watermelons. But despite this list, I love fruits in general. I'll eat almost any fruit.
I love vegetables as well. I can't go through a list because there's so many. I eat a lot of salads and even snack on raw vegetables like carrot sticks.
I also snack on nuts and granola bars to keep me going in the day.
I also drink detox tea once in the morning, and another one at night. If not detox tea, just a regular black tea. Before I could not drink it without sugar, but now I prefer them without sugar.
Just recently, I also added a protein shake to my diet. Sometimes my calorie intake throughout the day is not enough to sustain my activity. I lose weight easily and get really skinny. The protein shake just helps to increase my protein when my seafood and soy intake isn't high enough.
Lastly, WATER. WATER. WATER. I have been convincing myself that as well. And the common thing: no junks, sugary stuff, yaduh yaduh.
Now I do a mixture of the following:
Metamorphosis (muscle exhaustion) by Tracy Anderson
Weightlifting (power clean, front squat, back squat, lunges, modified deadlift)
Planking (lots of them)
Ab workouts (I sometimes follow Ab ripper X of P90x)
Sometimes I'll do the treadmill (but I hate running so it's rare), or I'll do the elliptical or bicycles.
Just whatever I feel like doing and depends on how exhausted I am from work (I am a nurse so I mostly walk all night long for 12 hours!) I don't do the same workout back to back. I change it up :)
So there you go! I have no magic miracle diet or routine. It's really a physical and mental battle to stay healthy.
