  • Added sugar and refined sugars are pretty terrible for you. After a big workout get some carbs, but mostly protein.

  • Certainly need a food scale, and even with a heart monitor it's hard to calculate calories burnt. I had the same issue as you last year and I didn't start losing again until I stopped counting exercise calories. Of course this is not the best advice if you are going absolutely bonkers in the cardio department. Try adding…
  • I love sugar free jello for this. I try to always have some in the fridge for that once a week sugar craving. I think an entire box is only 80 calories.
  • I've done both. I was a cardio *kitten* two years ago and I lost a lot of weight doing it. However, I got bored with it and got fat again. I've been primarily weight lifting for the past 3 months and I feel much better than I ever did with the cardio. I'm still about 50 pounds away from my goal but I feel better than I…
  • Oct 1, 2011. Just celebrated my 1 year, and damn is it nice. Can't believe I smoked for all those years. Stupid. Oh, and once you quit, you are quit. 10 years from now you won't be able to take a puff off your friends smoke at the bar. Just don't ever do it. You're done for life. I think that's what finally got me to stay…
  • It's tough, and I bet most of your family is overweight. If so, chances are they secretly rooting for you to fail. They don't want to see you lose weight, and lead a healthy life style because then they have one less excuse. I was hoping to lead the charge and be the one who got healthy in my house, it didn't happen. It…
  • Almond milk! I never knew I was slightly lactose intolerant until I gave up milk and my stomach problems were gone! Luckily it's not too bad since I still can eat the occasional yogurt and cheese without issue. But the half gallon of milk a day was killing me.
  • Watch the Gatorade since it has loads of sugar. Better off eating a banana or coconut water(any of these options is going to yield you around 100 calories so make sure you add them). What worked for me with my shin splints(caused by weak calf muscles) was stretching after a warm up. Spend 5min doing some light exercise…
  • I do about 1450cal/day but I don't really add more for exercise so I typically end up anywhere from 800-1400 "net calories"
  • They are only addictive because they are enjoyable. Your brain will get addicted to anything that causes stimulus. So you better just stop doing anything fun because you might become addicted to it! Besides the caffeine, there is zero chemically addictive properties in artificial sweeteners. So if drinking a diet coke…
  • Do you even know what you're talking about? First off there is zero scientific evidence showing artificial sweeteners do any harm to the human body in the doses we consume. The only study where it showed an increase in cancer was when they gave rats the equivalent of 100 diet cokes a day for their entire lives. The reason…

  • I have a few people at work, and my mother who give me **** sometimes. Funny thing it's all the overweight people telling my I'm too skinny. Maybe it's jealousy, or some other form of hatred. I'm no where near skinny, and people keep telling me I need to stop losing weight because I'm going "too far". I weigh 188lb(85kg)…
  • Go to settings, and update your diet/fitness profile. Even if nothing in there has changed hit accept. It will tell you what your new calorie goal is. You should be doing this every 10 pounds you lose. The more you lose, the less your body naturally consumes, and the more you have to cut back. My first goal was…
  • I made this a few weeks ago and it was a huge hit. I'm making it again tomorrow. So freaking good as taco filling. Lots of sodium but only about 250 cal/serving. The recipe listed below is a total of 1513 cal, 65 carbs, 9g fat, 276g protein, 21g sugar, and 6346mg sodium(lol). I split it into 6 servings and ended up eating…
  • I wasn't losing any weight until I started to ignore the net calories on days I went to the gym. My goal was 1500 cal/day and some days I would rack up an extra 600 calories doing an hour on the elliptical so I would eat about 2k total cal. I didn't lose a pound for a month. Now I just eat 1500/day regardless if I…
  • If it's from fruit you should be ok for the most part. Just try to make sure sugar doesn't make up a lot of your total carb intake.

  • Thank you. I hate these types of threads. News orgs find some crazy scientist and tell people they're going to die so they get some ratings. Turns out that scientist posted a crap study in some po-dunk journal that got shot to **** by real scientist, but it makes a good headline so the media runs with it. Just a reminder…
  • Wow, lots of misconceptions here about diet drinks. Artificial sugars have been shown to cause cancers when given to mice in very high dosages. A human would have to drink almost 2 and a half gallons/day for 30 days straight to get that type of dosage. These drinks are drank by 500 million people every day. If they are so…
  • You won't be able to use the rice you bought as "sticky rice", and your rice cakes will likely fall apart. Jasmine rice is kind of sticky, and sometimes used in sushi but isn't proper sticky rice. Go to an Asian market. You would be surprised how many there are, even in small towns, and it's almost a given you live by one.
  • This is what I use. Sometimes I feel it's a tad low, but if it is then I guess I got some bonus in.
  • So long as it's from fruits you should be fine. Just make sure you're being healthy, and get a glucose test every few months if you're worried about it. Now down the road if you wish to lower body fat % and build muscle then you will want to lower your sugar/carb/fat intake and increase protein.
  • People started to notice about 15-20lb on me. I didn't really see much difference until recently. I havn't dropped much more weight, but my bf% is down about 8%
  • I tried to lose at 1800/day but never did. I eat 1550/day, and try not to go over that even when I exercise. It's the only way I can drop. Everyone is different, but my body loves to keep the weight on. I'm 5`10" and at 195lb right now.
  • I work at a pizza shop, and I work there 6 days a week. I eat pizza a lot, 3 or 4 times a week at least. The best thing, IMHO is a plain cheese pizza. Fit it into your diet and you will be fine. Obviously thin crust, and light cheese is better, but just portion it. At my place a slice of a 12" cheese pizza is 150 cal. Not…
  • What everyone else has said. I was a bit disappointed when I only last 2lb in 3 weeks when I started, regardless of hitting my calorie goals, and exercising every day. Then on weeks 4 and 5, without changing anything I dropped 10lb and it's been a pretty steady 1.5lb/week drop since then. Change of lifestyle is hell on our…
  • I will have to try these. I've been hurting for something a bit sweet to help with my sugar cravings. It's the one thing I have yet to fully kick.
  • Just marking my spot for later.
  • I'm going with everyone else and calling that label suspect. Way too many carbs for just chicken. Either someone at the factory screwed up or you're not eating real chicken.
  • Yeah, I think I will wait for a peer reviewed scientific study to be published before avoiding all these dangers.
