    I use a macro based diet. and 30-45 minutes of exercise per day (6 days one rest day)when I stick to it I do really well, but the last six months I've been struggling with the workouts. My daughter is a bodybuilder, and have learned macros from her (she is a master of it ) I just need to refocus!!!

    I'm sticking with a whole foods based diet and light daily exercise. I don't eat meat, eggs or dairy, so during this challenge I am also going to try and increase my protein intake as I have been lazy with it lately, which doesn't help in the long term. I aim to eat between 1200-1500 calories, and though I count calories for peace of mind, its not the end of the world if I go over.

    I run daily for a minimum of 30 minutes up to 60 minutes, using a 10k training app. I also mean to do daily callisthenics but I haven't been consistent with it - so thats another thing to get on top of during the challenge! Seeing as I have a total of 40kg (90lbs) to lose, I want to maintain the muscle I already have underneath, so when my body is smaller it will still have muscles :)

    My plan is to eat clean under 1400 cals a day. Weight train 2-3 days week depending on how much my body can handle it (I have rheumatoid arthritis). Walking or swim 2-3 days a week. Mainly it's diet, though. You can't out train a bad diet!

    I like your plan - so straight forward and really simple. I have rheumatoid arthritis too!! The best thing I ever did was cut out added sugar. I have very little pain and do not have to take meds... yeah!!

    My plan is to stay within my MFP calorie limits, drinking a gallon of water a day, and doing the Jillian Michaels 30 day shed program. I am including a 100-200 calorie snack in the middle of the day as I was finding I wasn't staying full enough. The gallon of water idea came from a good friend who did a similar program and realized that he was more thirsty than hungry. The water kept him fuller for longer. I've been at it for 3 days and I'm noticing the same thing too. I believe in the K.I.S.S method (keep it simple stupid)- that way I'm more apt to follow :)

    At the moment I'm calorie counting and trying to keep low carb. If I'm having a carb trying to keep it while grain. Also keeping up with my kick boxing training and getting my steps in on the fit bit.

    Plan is to stay the course with this challenge. Trying to get back to using my kitchen scale and finding another exercise that I can truly enjoy.

    That's awesome to hear you are stable without meds! I haven't been doing any sugar, except for occasional sauces (my weakness) like the BBQ I had tonight. :blush: I am also hoping the diet+exercise will help with symptoms! Good luck!

    I haven't lost any weight in almost a year, I count calories and am on a high protein low fat lifestyle. I need to break through.

    I just count calories. My goals:
    • Stay under my calorie goal.
    • Add more workouts during the week, especially weights to keep muscle during the weight loss.
    • Get in more fruits and vegetables (been slacking on that lately)

    I plan to continue counting calories and do better about staying under my goal. I also plan to pick up exercising again and try not to let my life throw me of my exercise schedule anymore. I will stick to eating out once a week or less. I will also try to avoid candy and other sweets and will opt for some type of yogurt when I have cravings.

    I count calories and try to consume more protein than carbs... I would like to eat as clean as possible and limit my snacking. I want to also stay more consistent with my workouts.

    Hey All,
    I want to keep it as simple as possible, because it doesn't take much for me to get off track.
    I will stay within my calories, continue to walk on my break at work and take the stairs whenever possible. I will make time to exercise if only for 30 mins. I will also use my Nutribullet at least once a day during this challenge. I am pretty excited!! :0)

    Hello everyone. My main goal is to stick to my calorie goals or just under and avoid night eating . My stressful job used lead my to a few beers and snacking after midnight when I got home from work. Now I have been avoiding alcohol and enjoying herbal teas at night.

    CICO. That's it. Just sticking within my goals. I'd be lying if I said any exercise I'm doing at this stage isn't solely so I can eat more calories.. It works for me though!

    portion control
    decrease the beer and wine
    exercise regularly

    more than likely the 21 day fix to get started.....i tend to be an emotional eater and i eat when i'm bored so keeping busy and doing more active things.

    My plan of attack is low carb. I swear I am a carboholic. I am trying to keep my carbs at 20 but was way off today. Tomorrow is another day. :p
