For faster weight loss cut out the carbs except for during and immediately after a workout. Get more green veggies, cut the lean cuisine (too much salt, too much processing), cut the bacon.....frozen yogurt...? wtf? =)
Stick to a pairing of veggies and proteins at every meal. Get the bulk of your carbs from fruits and vegetables. Your proteins should be lean and low in saturated fats. (You need some saturated fats although.)
Peri and post workout get those high gi carbs, but also take advantage of the insulin spike it will create by adding some protein and nutrients to the mix. I like to make protein shakes after a workout consisting of apple or orange juice, frozen mixed berries, 25g of a vanilla whey protein powder, and 5g of creatine.
Your next meal after this post workout shake is also an okay time to get a few more carbs in. Avoid high concentrations of sugar, but this is a better time to eat starchy carbs like bread, or crackers, or potatoes. Don't over do it though.
If you have a sweet tooth, look at sugar free jello with a dab of whipped cream. I personally enjoy sugar free, fat free jello pudding every now and then but with an added scoop of vanilla protein powder for added nutritional value. It also helps thicken the pudding a little more. Mix in a blender for a smoother consistency. So many flavors to choose from. (I recommend pistachio and butterscotch.)
Best of luck, and good job thus far, you must be doing something right. You'll get there in time....unless of course you get hit by a bus first.
You have the best day ever!
