Hello folks,

Been losing weight for a month or so now and it is going well, i just wanted to know if this diet is the right way to go about it.

Breakfast
Porridge, Honey (sometimes penut butter) Half a scoop of whey
Mid Morning
Banana
Lunch
Wholewheat pasta (about a cup full) veg + kidney beans with meat(lean steak, turkey, chicken)
Dinner (pre workout)
Chicken + Salad
Post Workout
Protein Shake
Late evening
Cottage Cheese

Any ways to improve this would be appreciated

Thanks

Not enough fruits and vegetables. Too much emphasis on protein, not enough fats.

Barely, chicken and turkey is protein only, the steak does contain some fats. The only real source of fats I see is peanut butter. You could add some flaxseed, and eat fish regularly to improve on it.

I think you focus on protein too much, you're not eating much carbs either. But as you say for weight loss that does not have to be a problem per se, I just think it's rather low. I would not survive on that, let's put it that way. Your nutrient intake is very low, just one single banana that's all there is. A smart thing to do would be adding smoothies and veggie soup to your diet.

Do you fart a lot?

I know, it does not make much of a difference diet wise. Only the amount per portion is different, and fat intake could be a bit lower to make the calorie deficit easier to accomplish.

It's just my philosophy though, in my opinion a diet should go for maximum health first, any other goal is secondary. A diet that focusses on weight loss as fast as possible is an unhealthy crash diet, and I would never advocate that.

Again, it's my opinion and I'm not a world famous nutritionist, just one of the posters on this site. Take it for what it's worth.
