    That's exactly what I was thinking when he started pushing the supplements!!! And totally agree about Dr Fung over Jimmy Moore. I know it sounds really bad and judgy, but the guy is still significantly overweight (afaik)!

    Plus I found his style in the podcasts annoying - he was always trying to make jokes or something and they just didn't work (for me at any rate - maybe just the wrong sense of humour!). He was what I'd call cringeworthy!
    I had the same reaction to Moore, very cringeworthy.
    Dr. Fung used to be a fairly frequent guest on the show up until a couple months back when he tweeted that he would not longer appear on the podcast or have anything to do with Jimmy Moore. There is something shady about that guy.

    Oh, very interesting. Agreed - definitely something shady... Actually just did a google search on him and it was all quite revealing! I have a very hard time trusting people pushing any therapy, diet, alternative healing etc., when it is so clear that they are making a fair bit of cash from selling supplements, products etc. For some reason that doesn't extend to people selling books - maybe because you buy the book and that's it, there is no further outlay... Of course, as soon as they start selling stuff in the book or appendix - big red flag!

    The one I listened to was with some guy named Ben green something... Definitely not a Jimmy Moore LOL funnily enough though I agree the Ben guy was not very interesting and actually kind of aggravating LOL

    When you guys talk about %BF what method do you use or recommend?
    Since I was career Army I still use this:
    http://www.calculator.net/army-body-fat-calculator.html
    Although I have heard BF Calipers are more accurate.
    thanks, I'll use this one.

    I plan to get more exercise as I drop more weight for the time being I am going gentle but I know for sure that I will get into weight training and cardio this with fasting were the 2 missing pieces in my life. ( I lost a lot of volume in Oz when I joined a gymn and trained 2hours a day, it was amazing transformation.).

    But... my waist went down 1/2 an inch and body fat reduced to 20% using measurements. I had a rough weekend, missed OMAD on Saturday due a sleepover Birthday party with 15, 11 year old cheerleaders. I made it until 5 PM to start eating, but then I snacked all night. The next morning I fixed breakfast for them all, so I ate too. Hopefully I can keep it under control this week, and get the scale numbers to move!!

    Scale doesn't tell the whole story. You're down 20% bf and the 1/2 lost around the waist is awesome!

    Fifteen 11 year old cheerleaders sounds very loud to me... :)

    15 11-yr olds, yikes! Sounds like your putting on some muscle. Congrats!

    Today's a new day, just get right back on track...You got this!!!
  • blambo61blambo61 Member Posts: 4,372 Member Member Posts: 4,372 Member
    Give it a couple of days and you will be ahead. I almost always gain 2-lbs over the weekend and then it is gone by Tues when I go back on OMAD
  • minigrrllminigrrll Member Posts: 1,590 Member Member Posts: 1,590 Member
    It's Tuesday here and my weekend gain is already gone! :)

    Already gone as of this morning, I am still amazed at day to day fluctuations... I was at 215 today.

    Wonderful, Jason!

    I notice a very distinct pattern in my weekly fluctuations, Sat I drop 3-4, Monday I gain 2-3, it just depends on my schedule of activity and eating. So to see how I'm doing I compare to the prior week on the same day. It filters out the weekly noise.

    Good job!!!

    Same here, I will show you all a couple of my daily weigh in charts on my maintenance thread :)

    Agreed... My daily fluctuations up and down are very predictable week-to-week but I always know that I will be to my quote weigh-in weight the day I weigh in... That being said I might have to change it up to Friday depending on my new schedule we'll see lol

    I think that is the power of daily weighing - if you can do it for a few months and not freak out over the gains, you definitely see the patterns. Knowing your patterns, takes away the worry over gains.
