When trying to LOSE fat…. and tone up for bathing suit season..?

I have been losing weight for quite some time now. I have lost a total of 52 pounds and YES I know how to do it the healthy way. I love my body now at a healthy 150 BUT.. I’d like to be 140 for bathing suit season!

I have a question though. How does this sound for trying to LOSE fat?

Breakfast: PROTEIN SHAKE with one banana, milk, ice and one scoop of (PLEASE RECOMMEND A PROTEIN SHAKE FOR ME?????)

If I had protein SHAKE as my breakfast and ate a “vegetarian” diet the rest of the day would that be a better way to lose weight faster? Or should I stick with what I do now.. which is incorporate plenty of protein with every meal? (I eat 5 small meals a day)

Honestly, I would most likely find a way to include protein at every meal while taking the protein shake for breakfast, but the amount just wouldn’t be as high. For example, what I do NOW when I eat lunch is, for example, I’ll have a salad with grilled chicken breasts in it. BUT.. when I start the protein shake for breakfast plan.. I wouldn’t put in chicken but maybe a few slivered almonds for SOME protein..

Anyway. The final question… Which is better for losing weight/ body fat FASTER? What I usually do.. which is very healthy and has always worked.. but slowly? Or the protein shake in the morning with the rest of the day being a “vegetarian” diet?

BY THE WAY- I work out 6 days a week. I am waking up early and jogging 4 miles. Then at the end of the day, I do a 55 minute cardio/ weight training workout, I also do pilates on saturdays. I have been walking one mile after lunch as well to keep my metabolism up and keep burning extra calories.. 🙂 I just need to know which is better for dieting?

    You wanna find a protein shake with low calories. lots of calories are needed to build and bulk up your muscle. But if you find something with low calories, you can add your banana and milk and it won’t get too high in calories.
    Protein shakes shouldn’t be used as a meal suppliment. Only take your shake after your workout. It’ll have the high concentrate of protein to build muscle.
    Stick to eating some chicken breast with your salad. Keeps the almonds for a snack during the day.

    Here’s how a day should look.

    Breakfast – Oatmeal with some fruit, or a poached egg and a whole grain english muffin.

    Mid morning snack – a piece of fruit or veggies

    Lunch – salad with some chicken. Remember that the chicken portion should be the size of your palm. Just a good referrence.

    Mid aft snack – some almonds, maybe a handful. If your’e still hungry, grab a banana

    Dinner – Chicken breast or a lean piece of beef, brown rice and some steamed veggies or a salad.

    Your shake for post workout is a scoop of low calorie protein, a cup of milk, cup of water or ice, a banana for potassium (helps you heal)

    Lots of water during the day.
    Focus on body fat rather than weight loss because remember that muscle is heavier than fat, and you may not drop the weight you’d like but you’ll get leaner.

    Good luck and work hard! Also, mix your running with other types of cardio like jumping jacks, burpees, body weight exercises (squats, pull ups, push ups, sit ups) Keep your workout intense and hard. You won’t need to work out long if it’s intense. Probably can get out of there in 30-40 minutes. [email protected] for any other questions.
