My wife has gone to work so I have to make sure that the children come to school. Always a hassle, but it worked out we are all down. I still don't feel very empty so in that sense the feeling of hunger is not too bad. I can eat greek yogurt with strawberries and berries. Yummy!

The children get tasty sandwiches with chocolate spread that I am not allowed to eat. Gosh, that's disappointing! Greek yogurt with coffee is also pretty boring. Normally with a sandwich it is much better. I take a spoonful of peanut butter to make the coffee more enjoyable.

Dinner is fine. We make a kind of wrap with tasty vegetables, minced meat and even garlic sauce. The wrap itself is iceberg lettuce.

In the evening I actually have time to spare and that's because normally I think I start doing nothing more quickly. A bit of snacking and a beer, I think you know it. That's why I cleaned up a lot of the garage. So nice and busy! We close the evening with a series. We are now looking at an Israeli series called Fauda. Lots of action and it all goes pretty smoothly. Soon it is evening and I fall asleep like a baby.

It's time. Today I started my diet. My wife is going to do it too. Well, in terms of kilos, I need it a bit more than she does, but our lifestyle could be better. At the moment we eat too many tasty things and drink too much alcohol.

My lifestyle

In the morning we start the day with a cup of coffee with a few tasty sandwiches with jam, chocolate spread and sprinkles. During the day we actually eat reasonably healthy, but of course a dessert with dinner. Also with sprinkles… ..

In the evening, however, things go very wrong. During the holidays we developed a rhythm in which we combine tasty beers with brie, cheese and other tasty things. At the moment I drink an average of 3 beers in an evening and sometimes I also drink a glass of wine. Nice, but now we do this almost every evening and I am disappointed. For a number of weeks I have already decided that I will stop, but every night it goes wrong again. It also seems like some sort of reward at the end of the day. I am tired and now I have earned a treat.

The diet was downloaded from the site of a weight loss expert. We have received two weekly menus. My first impression is that it is very similar to a keto diet like Atkins or Dukan, but the nuance is that this seems a bit healthier. Less meat, less cheese and more healthy things like kinoa.

My starting weight

I weighed myself and I am 85 pounds. My height is 1 meter and 83 centimeters, which brings my BMI to 25.5. That means I just ended up in the "overweight" category. Bummer !!! In addition, I have a waist circumference of 102 centimeters. My chest circumference is 105 centimeters. My arm circumference is 32.5 centimeters. I mention the latter because I will also become more active with fitness again.

The first day was quite okay food wise. For breakfast a fried egg with many vegetables in it and for lunch a salad with shrimp. For dinner a meatball, endive and sweet potato. A stew, who would have thought. Stew while on a diet. In terms of carbohydrates, I don't think the sweet potato is quite right.

I also worked out. First fitness for an hour and then a small 4 kilometer run. It went pretty well. In the evening I actually did not miss the alcohol. Watched a movie about the founder of McDonalds. Hmm, strange choice.

In the morning I wake up nice and fresh. Of course it makes a big difference that I haven't had a drink last night. Fresh and fruity I get out and bed.  The children have to go to school and I am going to eat something that at first glance looks very dirty. It's gray buth it also has some strawberries in it. It's called a Chia pudding. It's terrible, I will never eat this again. At noon I eat an Apricot quinoa and that is actually quite delicious. In terms of carbohydrates, I think this is not quite okay, but well there will be a plan behind it.

During the day I forget snacks because I have appointments for work. I'm not hungry so that's okay. The weather is great today so I cycled for an hour on my racing bike. Lovely in the sun!

Because the children have now returned from school and my wife is home late, I have to make a quick low-carbohydrate dish in the evening and that goes well. Minced meat, endive, cheese, onion and bell pepper in an oven dish with coconut milk. Fine, but I can notice that this contains less carbohydrates than in the sweet potato dish yesterday.

My wife goes to the gym and I actually wanted to do Tae bo, but I have no energy at all. So I skip it and go to work for a while. Halfway through the work I put on a new film. Bumblebee, a Transformers movie that looks good. Halfway through the movie I turn it off and go to bed. I have not felt the need for alcohol again. Actually, I didn't even think about it. This is not so bad for me.

Computing your BMI value is actually a statistical way of determining which percentage of your body weight is fat. The index was developed by the Belgian mathematician Adolphe Quetelet in the mid-1800s. Today, it is still being used by doctors. Since then, the body mass index has been a proven indicator of imminent health risks for overweight and obese people

BMI values ​​for men

In 2010, an article appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association, which showed that nearly 75% of men aged 20 years and over were classified in the "overweight" category. Within this category another one third is categorized as obese. These findings are based on their BMI.

By gaining more knowledge about your own BMI value, you get insight into your own situation.
BMI scores can be divided into four categories. It is about underweight, normal weight, overweight and obesity / obesity. Scores of 18.5 and lower are classified in the category underweight. Normal weight ranges between 18.5-24.9. Reach for overweight standards 25-29.9. Obesity falls below a score of 30 and above.
