I also need to cut back on my intake of lipids and also substitute some meats and poultry with seafood other than tuna. As for my personal physical activity I need to increase muscular training.

Before becoming vegan I always had a negative view of carbs because people who were giving weight loss advice said that carb were the enemy when it comes to losing weight. I learned that is not technically the case and instead carbs are very important because they give you energy you need throughout the day. So to have enough energy throughout the day I made sure to eat some sort of food for breakfast that has a good amount of carb... ... middle of paper ... ...nowing now all the issues that follow if you do not get enough fiber and how much damage it does for your body, I was really pleased to learn that I get more than enough and I do not have to worry about the effects at my current state. I eat a lot of fruit and vegetables that contains high amounts of fiber, bread, bagels, and beans. All I need to do is keep this up.
Some health problems associated with obesity are heart disease, stroke, respiratory problems, diabetes, and an increased risk of developing certain types of cancer (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2012). Therefore, my eating and exercise plan will focus on moving toward a healthier weight and maintain a healthy weight once the excess weight is lost. Since I have a good understanding of how to understand nutritional labels, meeting my weight loss goals will be easier. One problem that I have had is eating much more than the suggested serving size for foods. I will only be eating the recommended serving size now, which will contribute to helping me meet my nutritional goals.
My goal is to continue keeping track of my dietary journal to make sure I regulate what nutrients I need and what nutrients I need to decrease for overall health.

I can, however, cut back on eating sweet treats which I think will be easier. In contrast to the refined grains, my intake of vegetables was very low at only 1 cup. This is going to be more challenging to change because I’m so used to my mom making dinner which is where I would get my daily vegetables.
