I have recently changed jobs and now work on a mine site, and have realised I am eating more healthily than ever before. A regular day would be:
Breakfast: 1 slice of toast with some baked beans or sml scoop of natural museli and 1 sml scoop of all bran
Lunch: Salad sandwich
Dinner: 1 sml slice of roast meat or steamed fish, vegetables (usually steamed corn, broccoli, cabbage...maybe 1/2 potato sometimes), pudding & custard for dessert (this is a very bad habit)
Snacks: fruit (3 sml slices watermelon)
I eat only wholewheat bread, use no butter or spreads and do not drink alcoholduring the week.
Compared to my previous diet of fast food 3 times a week, wine during the week, cheese and starbucks coffee this is a complete change for me...however even despite what I deem to be reasonable potion sizes I don't seem to be losing any weight!
I do not get much time to exercise here (and they do not have any yoga up here)...is there anything you can recommend changing in this diet (ok...except the pudding!)
I am 5'8 and 78kg.
Sounds like you're eating just fine. If you want to lose weight, you have to BURN more calories than you eat. I would suggest adding some cardio to your routine - perhaps 20 minutes, 3x a week of jogging or cycling. Add a little strength training too for increased results.
