You are still eating too many carbohydrates in a day, it doesn't appear as if you're getting enough protein and lack of vegetable/fruits are a concern.

    You asked for advice, what were you looking for then if not help on how to maximize your nutrition and weightloss?
    Can I just say something... the finn crisp ones are good as a snack or instead of normal bread. They contain 25 calories per slice and is low in sugar carbohydrates. 1g dietary fiber per 6.5 grams of product is a damned good ratio, and it contains a good amount of iron and magnesium too. Just because something is made from a grain doesn't mean it's bad. This products is mostly wholegrain rye flour, wholegrain oat flour, barley and millet. In fact most of Finn Crisp products are made from rye, which has a larger amount of dietary fiber than wheat. They use no added sugars or fats either.

    I didn't say grains were bad - A snack of them occasionally isn't a big deal but if you're eating them every day you're sacrificing nutrition when you could be eating a more whole grain food that's less processed. They're still crackers, eating whole grains such as whole barley or bulgar is a more nutritious way to get your whole grains in and they'll fill you up for longer. Processed flour, regardless of whether it's white flour or wholegrain flour will not stay with you as long as a 1/2 cup serving of actual grains and it's nutritional value is triple than a serving of the crisps. If, for example, you serve 2 crackers with a tuna salad or a tuna and white bean salad then it can be added as a serving of grain but you still shouldn't eat them as a primary source of fiber or grains. Add to that the 2 slices of bread and then you've taken in way more processed flour than you should be. I won't say to stop eating them; all foods have their place in a healthy diet and while I don't think the Finns are unhealthy at all, just that there are better ways to get your whole grains in. Also, since Vampyria is looking to revamp (no pun intended) her eating plan, we're looking to cut back on that and incorporate alot more veg and fruit.

    I've not had the Finn crisps, they look like the Wasa crispbreads, which I do actually like to eat with my tuna white bean salad.

    In your opening post you discussed what you've been eating which means you're aware of what and how much you're taking in. That's the first step.

    Iīve lost weight!
    My legs are smaller and my belly aswell, I think itīs because I stopped walking for more than maximum 2 hours on weekends(my legs became bigger when I walked 3 hours or more) and my belly, well I think itīs because I changed my eating habits a little and I am not as stressed as I was before, happy:D I still got my ass but hey, canīt do much about it and my belly, well itīs getting smaller but not flat but still, I am working on it, just so happy:D Mom told me how nice I look now that my legs are smaller, which makes me feel great.

    I believe that in order to lose weight you need to do exercises more systematically and eat normally. If you cann't plan your workout yourself, then you can search on the site https://wodcat.com/wod suitable for your level of training. It would also be good to consult with a nutritionist so that you get all the necessary vitamins and nutrients from your diet.
