Got myself a Nintendo Wii and have been addicted to the tennis game. I lost two pounds over the weekend. Have been dieting for about 3 months and lost weight fast for the first month, but then got to the point where I wasn't losing any more. The Nintendo has given me a good cardio workout, and I finally lost a few more pounds. I plan to play at least 30 minutes every day.
So I am genetically predisposed to have somewhat of a gut, but it's getting a little out of control. I'm 5-9, I was around 150 before law school and now I'm at 165. I know I'll never have a 6 pack but I would like to at least lose some of the fat. I was figuring since I'm in my late 20s I need to take in less than 1800 calories a day to slowly lose weight. I'm moderately active (usually walk a total of 3-4 miles a day). Any advice about what I can eat to cut down on the gut? I don't have the time or inclination to cook vegetables and I've heard that canned vegetables have basically no nutritional value- so should I just go with PB and J and spaghetti and other stuff that's not very high in fat? Any advice much appreciated...
I find law school to be an easy environment for controling your weight. The schedule is flexible enough to fit in exercise every day and it is one great way to relieve stress. I don't buy it when people claim that they are too busy to exercise. Even while preparing for finals there are at least a few free hours in the day.
