HH, sounds like a lovely active day. Where are you sore? Your back or just general fatigue-muscle stuff?<br><br>
The first few weeks of exercising will be hard. Take it too easy if you need to. Then you'll get your stamina and energy back.<br><br>
Feel free to tell us more about the dietician's recommendations, too. (maybe in meri's forum?)<br><br>
You have a smart return to exercise plan, a professional diet, and us to cheer you on. You're set!

All right, Heavy, I mean, HighHeat. Best of luck to you on your eating plan. You know you can do it because you did it before, so it's not uncharted territory for you.<br><br>
I'm also interested in the plan you're following.

Looks like a very do-able plan.<br><br>
Is the caffeinated green tea to speed weight loss, as some studies have shown? For an energy boost? Or the antioxidants?

Coffee contains antioxidants as well. I don't know how the levels or types compared to green tea. I think it would vary based on freshness and type of coffee/tea. For whatever reason (maybe because that's what's been studied?) green tea intake has shown a slight association with weight loss.<br><br>
But Heavy -- sorry -- HighHeat, you are the stats person, not me. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

The dairy advice is interesting given that the dairy association has been promoting dairy foods as diet foods (the 3 a day for weight loss campaign). Those studies were funded by the dairy association and definitely weren't conclusive, just well marketed. Your RD is smart.

Because she (he?) isn't buying the party line about dairy and weight loss. I've been to reputable nutrition workshops where it's dairy dairy dairy.<br><br>
If it's part of a calorie restricted diet, <i>any</i> food will lead to weight loss.
