on top of this, learn to use lazy cooking methods. you can make a whole crazy amount of delicious foods with minimal effort in your oven, a slow cooker, and a sous vide. instant pots are great to. like the four horsemen of tasty ass food without putting in a shitload of work. i make a killer chuck roast by doing nothing more than putting the meat in the cooker, putting the seasoning packet in, dumping in half a cup of water and letting it sit all day. thats literally it

Once you accept this doesn’t end, it gets easier. Don’t push yourself too hard or you’ll burn out like I did after smolov. I wrote my diet plan into 3 notebooks and got motivation to continue by the cost-sink fallacy of how many days I’d invested into them. Obviously myfitnesspal and other similar apps would work as well, but for me, these were physical evidence of my progress.
Message permalink: 710096461181747222
The more you invest, the more you’re not willing to quit. Especially if you buy your own home gym. If going that route, all you really need is an adjustable squat rack, bench, and 300lb of weight. Also, when buying weight that’s used, make sure to bring a scale. I have a 45lb weight that weighs 53lbs. Bought it off craigslist...at a gym that had been closed for years who’s owner was slowly trying to get rid of everything.

Swimming burns an insane amount of calories. My warning as always with the keto is make sure to consume some carbs otherwise your brain will shut down. A larger intake of water is needed as well for converting fat into energy. \

It works best because it is a strict diet. Please do a little bit of research first before starting it since drastically altering your diet can be dangerous. When in doubt consult a dietitian not a doctor.

I had a coworker recommend a smoothie in the morning. 1 cup whole milk One scoop protein powder (I usually used vanilla or chocolate) 2-3 tablespoons peanut butter 1 tablespoon fiber powder And 1-3 tablespoons honey 1 banana Blend until smooth I used to drink one of these every morning around 8am and wouldn’t be hungry until 2-3 in the afternoon. Of course, back then, I was in carpet cleaning and on my feet 6-12 hours a day. High protein, high fiber and low carb and sugar. I’d get a subway sub with double meat and cheese (usually the roasted chicken breast) and load it with veggies and go to town. I could also get 2 double quarter pounders w/ cheese from McD’s and I was still losing about 1-2 pounds a week. Now I have a more sedentary job when I’m working so I can’t eat like that unless I start burning more calories. I don’t have access to a pool, which is why I opted for the exercise bike. I might have to get back into my morning smoothies. He said that the fiber powder bonded with the proteins in the shake and helped it break down slower, in addition to helping keep you regular and peeing more, which is apparently how your body gets rid of most of its fat. My issue is more portion control as well. I’m working on it bits at a time though. The problem is that I let myself get bad enough that it’s hard to get back into it. It’ll be a long, slow road.
Message permalink: 712482670164181033
Losing 1-3 pounds a week is the ideal way. I like your mind set of starting slow because that is very achievable. Try to do add one thing max per week and really trying to work it in. Having a person that you tell either weekly or even daily will hold you responsible. I don't think that you will be peeing out fat unless something is very wrong. Having a goal list for each day with a goal. Those smoothies are probably pushing 800 or so calories and sound very tasty.

Message permalink: 713462230104014888
Start very slow with one small goal @P. . While losing all your weight fast will be rewarding start with something like taking a small sip of water in between bites during meals to reduce the amount of food you eat. Also try to identify several flavors of the food you are eating this will make you much more aware of your eating habits. When eating only eat with no distractions such as music or even a TV in the background. These aren't a quick fix and it may take several weeks to see results but it will allow you to keep trying. Don't label food as healthy and unhealthy instead of eating 5 cookies for example (I'm looking at a few right now) slowly eat one cookie and enjoy the flavors. So don't cut out treats because that isn't fun or healthy but try to eat even one less bite than you normally do. A lot of quick weight loss is water weight too which will come back once you drink more water.

@Catman I know I'm gonna sound like a douche but I belive that I might have a problem with appetite specifically. For instance I had a good meal last night and here it is at breakfast and I have a literal gut pain. I feel like I got punched in the gut because I'm behind my meal time by an hour today. I have done 72 hour fasts before and I felt fine, well maybe a little dumb, but the hunger wasn't this bad. Idk man, got any thoughts?
Message permalink: 713472647517962371
@P. I have some similar issues. Honestly, as you eat more, your stomach expands, so you need to eat more to feel full. It’s a vicious cycle that I’m also trying to break. As far as suppressants go, coffee and tea are both pretty good while also being diuretics. So you’ll be peeing a lot of the water out that you can be drinking between meals. I have found that a high protein, high fiber and low sugar and carb diet has worked for me in the past. For example, I’d run through McDonald’s after a long day at work and get two double quarter pounders with cheese but no fries or soda. Of course, I was on my feet all day for work at the time. Green tea is also supposed to have some good fat burning qualities. You could also switch to less calorie dense foods like vegetables. You eat as much as you normally would, but a pound of broccoli has less calories than a pounds of beef, for example. On the other side of that, you could eat foods that “stick to your ribs” a little longer like oatmeal and protein shakes, thereby eating less because you’re less hungry throughout the day. I used to do a protein shake in the morning around 8am and wouldn’t be hungry until 2-3pm, when I would get those burgers or a double meat, double cheese sub from subway loaded with veggies. I’m looking to lose a bunch of weight as well, but my main issues is getting moving and portion control. But slow and steady does it best, I’ve found.
Message permalink: 713486407825358902
@Schweet-T Thanks man, that's some good info. If you got a hard time getting moving I would suggest joining a casual sports team. Assuming your not all banged up already, I would highly recommend rugby. But for real, a team makes things 10x easier.
Message permalink: 713487696215146598
It’s more that I’ve really let myself get way bigger than I thought I would. So low impact stuff for me until I can get my knees to handle extended walking around. I’m looking to lose about 150-ish pounds, to give you a bit of an idea.
Message permalink: 713490074225868901
@Schweet-T Yeah I've very shamefully let myself go, but I can still recover at this point if I work for it. For you, if you can, try swimming. Like go for 3 or 4 hours. I will try to cross the pool holding my breath underwear.
Message permalink: 713503770482311269
Schweet summed up the stomach expansion pretty well how your body can get used to eating a lot more and eating less can be painful. Fasting and delaying a meal are two separate things. I don't know very much about fasting.
Message permalink: 713528895877677148
Fasting is something that you need to research before doing before you end up getting bigger when you crash off the lifestyle. You start off with a large eating window and a small no eating window, as you progress, you up the no eating window to say 16:8 16 hrs being no eating, 8 eating window.
