    Anyone got any ideas for a low carb meal planner? Breakfast I usually eat oatmeal with egg whites which is carbs but ok for breakfast.

    Where I run into problems is in the evening. Aside from steak, salmon, chicken all with veggies, what more can I think of? I do eat tuna also and I hear spring water is the healthiest.

    I gotta lose the gut before my next overseas trip. Unfortunately I had kfc last night and a caramel slice with lunch yesterday :(

    Why egg whites? Where are the yolks?

    I was told to take it out. Not sure why it’s bad though.

    The yolks are the most healthy and nutritious part of the egg, and makes up around 40% of the protein content.

    Here's what I usually have:

    Breakfast: nothing. Have a coffee with no sugar or milk if you can't skip a meal. It will suppress hunger.
    Lunch: Tuna salad.
    Dinner: Meat/fish/eggs and salad, often add cheese.

    No snacks, no dessert, no juices, no alcohol. Maintain a caloric deficit without carbs and you'll lose weight. I go to the gym so have whey protein post-workout. Avoid nuts because of high calories.

    Add high-intensity interval training (HIIT), I recommend a stationary bike, plus weight lifting and you'll lose weight. I dropped 6kg in a couple of months to basically as light as I have been as an adult. Now lift to gain weight, may do a cut soon but only changes portion sizes (and not eating yoghurt which I do now).

    Lunch: Caesar Salad

    Snack: Protein shake - usually have it with Greek/natural yoghurt

    Dinner: Some form of protein (fish, steak, chicken etc with green vegies)

    Snack: Berries and Ricotta or Whipping Cream

    Of course you will lose weight if you starve yourself. And lifting weights while eating so little isn't going to work. You need to eat more calories to put on muscle.

    I am aware of that. I've put on 6kg after losing 6kg but it is mostly change in body composition (i.e., muscle).

    It depends on what your current goal is. But I still go low carbs regardless and still fast (intermittent).

    That's good. At least you're not going out of control. Glad to hear it is working for you :)

    If you are just looking to lose weight then just eat healthier and exercise a bit more. The biggest issue is see in your post is the last sentence - lack of discipline. You want to lose weight but you'll have KFC and a caramel slice.

    These low carb diets might work but if you are already struggling for discipline now then it wont work for you.

    That's the beauty of fasting. If you have zero calories for breakfast (fast) and a low calorie lunch like a light salad, then you just have to avoid eating crap and you can basically eat what you want for dinner. It's a way to cheat calories as well as obtain the benefits of fasting. Some days I only eat once but can have a couple of steaks for dinner and yoghurt and chocolate for dessert - and not get fat.

    Discipline is a matter of habit. Create a monthly routine check sheet where you list your daily habits. Tick off the days you fulfilled your mini-goals. Look to improve month to month. It took me a year to get off processed sugars, improvement is not linear. For setting of strong goals check out the Harada Method.
