  • Stop doing silly diets and follow a healthy balanced normal diet so your energy doesn't slump and you have the right building blocks to support your body nutitionally through weight loss. Simple thing is, unless you're at the latter stages of getting shredded, not generically losing weight, then the simple calories in <…
  • Wow.... I thought this was trolling... agree with TavistockToad., who says romance was dead?! Even if you d trust him, he doesn't trust you and that honestly NEVER ends well....it's just a matter of time before one or the other gets fed up and it implodes after normally a big explosion of emotions where all pent up…
  • He sounds dangerous and like he shouldn't be working in the health and fitness or healthcare industries... and like hes a psychopath... Report it to the police as domestic abuse, which is what it was. Even retrospectively. Sorry to hear your ordeal but glad you're at the other end of it.
  • lemon juice, balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze... black pepper... Radishes, cherry tomatoes, spring onions. Lunch typically atm is salad with tomatoes, spring onions, extra light mayo, chopped seafood sticks, smoked salmon or tuna... and a slice of small wholemeal bread! yum! Also, adding herbs like basil, parsley and…
  • I took this with a pinch of salt tbh! But may have taken it differently in a different mood, and depending on past history... I saw it as OP meant, but can see it was potentially insensitive... unintentionally. Lighten up guys... I know bulimia isn't funny, at all; but am sure OP didn't intend to be so frivolous and will…
  • This and a whole other myriad of other stuff... i do cardio to pass my fitness, test, make me feel good, make my job easier, boost my circulation, and it still burns calories so lets me eat more generously!!!
  • You are a LEGEND! Massive congrats on such a lifestyle overhaul and getting into great shape/health!
  • I double track on endomondo and runkeeper for a comparison and never had problems, not on my iphone 3gs, not on my iphone 4 and not on my now, sony xperia z... try deleting an reinstalling... and check device compatibility. surprised that they wrote that stuff to you though.
  • You can take a horse to water but you can't make the horse drink... and the opposite applies... Or you'd be arguing that for all cases where people die of illnesses because they won't take their medicine because they don't like the tase/side effects...but itll make them better...
  • This is probably too low as pointed out by the first reply, you need some stuff to help your body retain muscle and allow it to lose the fat. Musclee uses a lot of energy to maintain and muscle burns more calories than fatty tissue/unit weight. What has worked for me is not having such a massive deficit as I work out, and…
  • Both brilliant...! btw... that's one hell of a wart!... You forgot blowing nose... shaving legs?! Removing watch, gold medallion!?!?
  • It annoys me that H2B sometimes has whinged about pics I put up of me in a BIKINI! The very same one he encourages me to wear on a beach that covers well! Its not a thong nor is it skimpy as far as bikinis go!!! And sports bra pics... well he complains about them being really frumpy and covering up, bearing in mind mine…
  • ELLIPTICAL! And use anti chafe balm as used by cyclists... and shiny fabrics so they glide over each other... try some compression wear underneath too as it will make your legs a little slimmer by redistributing so called chub! So there should be less pressure on the rub!
  • I do both and nothing wrong with it at all! Whatever motivates you! Plus some other people in your shoes so they need YOU to race against! ;)
  • And if you're unlucky enough to be disporportionate and tall too like me... then the exercises get harder! My arms are longer proportionally than average... so need to produce more torque in joints because of the leverage when doing things like pushups... doenst stop me, but it is physically harder…
  • An army marches on it's stomach so the saying goes...
  • I hate the association with "military" and this. In basic training, i didn't think about what i ate other than "SHOW ME THE CALORIES" you need it just to get through your day and keep up with the phys, long hours and morale for all the BS!!!
  • Lots of running, eventually weighted brisk walks in boots -don't do that right away though and certainly not running and do not use loads of weight at first... 5kg maybe. Pushups, situps (don't bother with crunches!) more pushups, inclined pushups, declined pushups, unstable surface pushups... think hands and feet on piled…
  • To save the hassle... i weigh it out pre cooking and use the value on the pack uncooked every time... its about 1 calorie, or just over per gram.
  • Born in Wakefield in the biggest and best county (braces!), Yorkshire! Lived in Newcastle, Lincoln, Shrewsbury and back in Lincoln... Travel around every few years with job!
  • Sensible.
  • I love it when someone says hi! But I can be shy, and sometimes hanging out of my *kitten* so you'll just get a grunt... or if my headphones are in and im focussed on the running or an obstacle a head or something else like a dilemma at work im running through my head as i run, then i unfortunately may not notice "you" and…
  • This and a whole host of other stuff people have written on here... Quit and give up, but you're only getting fatter because you're doing it wrong. You probably are not being honest or accurate with your expenditure and intake. Same reason when I put on weight, I know hand on heart that it's because I ate a little bit here…
  • Personal training sessions... to help me get past the next stage and get lean!
  • Me too! A quick pat on the back too...
  • Definitely running... and deadlifts... super core and ab movement (uses whole core) Crunches can widen your hips and are a bit of a nothing exercise... Any cardio that uses big muscle groups will help you lose weight assuming a diet to match, through sheer calorie deficit. But the motion of running does use your core a lot…
