New job walking 10 to 14 km a day diet .

Just started a new position at work where I will be walking 10 to 14 km a day . What type of calories do I require daily. My current diet is below .

Two hard boiled eggs with 2 slices of bacon and a muffin for breakfast .

Mid morning snack is a banana.

For lunch I have sandwich with roast beef of prosciutto with cheese on rye . Along with some cherries tomatoes .


For dinner is varies from beef to chicken . I try to stay away from potatoes as much as possible .

Is this enough food for my job ? I'm a male 5'10 and 225 pounds . What do I need to increase ?

I recommend eating complex carbs like potatoes (baked or boiled), ditching the bad stuff in ur current diet, and finding comfortable shoes.

I have a bit of a beer belly . But when people look at me they never believe my weight . Both kids are skinny but they both weigh a ton .

These guides always put me as obese . I have a bit of a beer belly . I doubt anyone would call me even close to fat .

Just see what happens and increase your intake to match your hunger and energy level.

For your intake you listed, you shouldn't have 'beer belly'. You must be eating some extra calories somewhere. Use an app like chronometer to measure your intake now and then compare with what you end up eating afterwards.

Need a more accurate intake list. At your weight you’re definitely eating more than what you wrote. I would start walking without changing a thing. See how that goes first.

I just finished a job where I drove all day . Bad eating habits on the road . Plus some IPA beer here and there . What I posted is what I'm trying to stick to . Once I get to work I'm not going out for food .

you have one muffin every day but stay away from potatoes?
not one mention of a vegetable other than the cherry tomatoes (which are botanically a fruit)?
i would waste away on a diet like that...without all the walking. i do lift a few times a week.

Track your weight, food, energy levels and actual distance walked for a few weeks and it will be easier to adjust after collecting that data.

Walking 14km a day... you will lose weight unless you diet consists of only Burger King and donuts.
