i'm gaining weight because of muscle wasting. this is what happens when a person consumes less calories than she is burning through exercise. the muscles get consumed by the body, only to be replaced by fat. hence the weight gain.
i exercise regularly even when on the field. i swim, do pilates, do sun salutations. here at BGC, i walk to and from work.
so now, to lose weight and maintain it more effectively, i have been instructed by the FF nutritionist to reintroduce good carbs to my diet - in the form of whole wheat breads, pasta, even potatoes. rice is actually best recommended because it only takes 1 cup to have 8 slices of bread and 2 cups of pasta.
so now i eat but also exercise with instruction. yoga 2x a week and gym work 3x a week.
a smarter way to get fit, again, that is.
