  • Don't get overly caught up with day-to-day changes, your weight fluctuates quite a bit throughout the day for a wide variety of factors. As long as you stay at a calorie deficit though, it will always eventually start to go down.
  • Any dessert items, lol. It's not even about trying to stay fit, I've just never liked desserts or had a sweet tooth whatsoever.
  • Eating just 1,200 calories per day won't make the 'starve' as some are suggesting. I do intermittent fasting every other week and only eat once per day (1,000 calories) and then the following week eat 2,500 calories per day with regular meals. I've never gotten that hungry during my intermittent fasts and am always…
  • It's important when you're adding your foods into your daily log to be very specific about what it is you ate. I'm not saying you aren't already doing that, but whenever I input something, say for instance cottage cheese, I'll match the nutrition label to the exact item on the fitness pal app. If you pick the wrong brand…
  • Breakfast: Raisin Bran and Skim Milk Lunch: Whole wheat bread, turkey breast, light mayo, one slice of colby cheese, lettuce. Dinner: Two chicken breasts seasoned but without any sodium added. Snack: 2 reduced fat string cheese. Unfortunately, I burned the chicken today tho...lol
  • I live in an apartment complex that has a private gym area, so I fortunately have been able to continue as normal. I live in Texas as well and the regular gyms will be opening back up a week from today. Other than that, I bought a TRX strap which allows you to do a lot of different exercises.
  • I’m working on being able to run a 5k and average 8 minutes per mile. I’ve never been a great runner, but trying to get better. I have a training program I’ve been utilizing every day.
  • I’ve never had a sweet tooth even when I was a little kid. I’m weird and lucky in a way because I find chocolate and deserts dry and bland 😂. Unfortunately tho, my cravings for salty foods is still there so that’s why I try to curb
  • Breakfast: 0% Milkfat Greek Plain Yogurt with a pinch of sugar for flavor and topped with granola and berries. Lunch: Scrambled eggs with peppers, jalapeños, onions and light cheese with low sodium garlic seasoning for taste. Dinner: Pan seared chicken breast with a side of cottage cheese and baby carrots Other: 3 cups of…
  • This was my dinner last night. Seared chicken breast with a side of green beans topped with a low calorie homemade mushroom cream sauce
  • Some scrambled eggs during the day always make me hit my protein goal easily and they’re low calorie and very filling. My breakfast yesteday below!
  • Yes! @DWBalboa not someone you want to get into a fight with
  • 3 Sets of 5 Minute Planks / 25 Leg Raises with a 2:00 Break Between Sets 3 sets of Weighted Machine Rows (10-15 Reps) 3 sets of Lateral Pull-Downs (6-8 Reps) 3 sets of Front DB Raises (10-15 Reps) 3 sets of Lateral DB Raises (10-15 Reps) 20 Minute HITT alternating between 3 minute high-intensity run and 3 minute walking.
  • I exercise at night time heavily right before so when I'm finished I'm completely exhausted and all I want to do is sleep. It works for me, but I'm not sure that would work for most people lol.
  • In my honest opinion, I don't think any diet is necessarily bad or good if your overall goal is just to simply lose weight. Many people find success in a wide variety of diet plans (intermittent fasting, all natural diet, vegan diet, keto diet, traditional diets). I think the important thing is moreso to find a diet that…
  • I've been eating a lot of breaded tilapia as a low-calorie high-protein option for cutting. I know a lot of people find tilapia dull, but it can be really good when properly seasoned. I could eat it for every meal and be perfectly happy.
  • Interesting insight. I'll have to look into this formulas more! Thank you for the information.
  • Congratulations on the weight loss! You must feel proud looking back and seeing all the results!
  • It helps me to always remember that weight loss is always going to occur when you're at a caloric deficit. There are obviously other factors that come into play, but I think it's important to constantly remind yourself that if you keep yourself at a deficit (even if it's just a small one), that eventually you will lose…
  • The Harris Benedict Equation is the best method to determine this. If you google it, you'll find some online calculators that will do the work for you. I learned about this in college and had to use it a lot for various projects. According to my professors, it is the best measurement to determine caloric requirements based…
  • Hey Mila! I just joined today also. I'm looking to cut a few pounds as well. Best of luck to you moving forward!
  • Currently cutting. Breakfast: 4 brown organic eggs, chopped tomatoes, onions, red pepper, and jalapenos with light feta cheese and herbs for seasoning (trying to keep sodium levels low) Lunch: Two pieces of breaded tilapia, black coffee and carrot sticks. Dinner: Skipping dinner today. Currently alternating days when I…
