you said that you're diet is no where near perfect. can i have an example of your daily meals please?
Breakfast: usually is some low sugar cereal (with either whole, 2% or 1% milk) Fruit (maybe a banana, or some blueberries, or a kiwi and a Yellow Pear) Orange juice Usually a small glass. 2 slices of either whole grain or multi-grain toast with either natural peanut butter (the type that the oil seperates) or raw honey, or low sugar jelly/jam on the toast.
Lunch: Usually take a lunch with me containing a sandwich with whole grain or multi-grain bread, low fat meat (but high sodium unfortunately like all packaged meat), one thin slice of cheese on the sandwich, and some mixed raw fruits and veggies (broccoli, berries, celery, banana, kiwi, etc) and a few bottles of water.
Dinner: Some days will make something like a hamburger on a multi-grain or whole grain (usually wheat) bun, sometimes with a thin slice of cheese, or a grilled chicken sandwich the same way. Usually a tall glass of whole, 2% or 1% milk, or a glass of some other low sugar (not OJ) juice.
Once or twice a week I will steam some frozen veggies and that will be it for dinner, with a glass or two of milk or fruit juice.
With the job that I work, it is next to impossible to eat 5 or 6 small meals a day, unless I split my lunch over several break periods (which I usually do) And sometimes dinner is much later than it should be (8PM or so), no getting around that and not gonna starve either. Meals are sometimes at odd hours of the day, as a result of my job.
As I said this aint the perfect diet, but far better than the garbage fat truck driver lifestyle I was living 5 months ago (stuff your face now, regret it later)
I'm almost 32 now, but in my early to mid 20's I was able to drop the pounds pretty easy when I began to work out, and diet was way worse then too. Plateaued a few times but overcame it with no major changes. Metabolism is a lot slower now, I don't need to be reminded of that.
Let me make my original question easier for you: With PROPER DIET and the exercise program I mentioned above, will I still be able to lose weight and fat by taking the above mentioned dose of whey protein?
