  • It's not the time on the bike that burns the calories per say it's based on your stats plus speed and distance. 2hours on a bike could be 10 miles....or 20 miles or 50miles a 150 person cycling a steady pace of 14 mph will burn 48 calories per mile, that same person traveling at 20 mph would burn 56 calories per mile. A…
  • so agree with this... I find when I treat my body as it should be treated I feel amazing... Now if I go off the rails and do stupid stuff like drink too much, don't get enough sleep or good sleep, eat food that is mediocre in taste and health benefits...I pay...and it's just not worth the cost to me now...
  • it's a great beginner program...but after doing it for almost a year I had to move on it was taking forever with the breaks required. I've been doing 5/3/1 for years now and it still works well. Still the big 3 plus overheads and you can add in accessory lifts if you want.
  • hmm perhaps but I can take a bite from something and spit it out as it isn't worth it. but if I go for a walk I feel amazing with the fresh air, sunshine, endorphins etc. All this no pain no gain etc is part of "diet culture" that is total Bullsh*t imo. Find something you enjoy that gets you moving more...biking, swimming,…
  • why 1200? 4lbs is pretty fast unless you are at least 100lbs over weight... For me I eat appx 1600 calories a day to lose 1lb a week and I do 5.5 miles or appx 90mins of cardio a day broken into 4 sets of walks. Then I just started lifting heavy again.... If I want to slow my weight loss I can eat up to appx 1900 calories…
  • Zombie thread
  • There wasn't just one.... it started with as Ann put it "flipping the switch" Then coming here and logging my food....which lead to education....which lead to my food scale. Then prelogging my food and prepping to make life easier... 60+ lbs later.... That was 2013....8 years later I am maintaining my weight loss fairly…
  • naw.... when I talked to my diabetic brother....the one who's had it since he was 6.... starches aren't his worst enemy...as a matter of fact he needs a set number of grams to be ok. what his worst enemy(s) are things like taking his insulin and having to wait too long to eat....yah that can kill him....literally...I've…
  • In responding to a statement it is fine to highlight the part you are responding to for sure...aka using bold and italics. As for indicating you've eliminated part of the quote don't clip it and you won't have to. as for pandering to a simple request then don't...I have very easy remedies if I feel I need to implement…
  • perception is reality...and your perception of what was done doesn't match mine. *shrugs* so be it.
  • don't believe every youtube video you see.... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5828430/ As well the 0.8-1.2g per kg is minimums....that would put me at 58-87 grams a day and that isn't nearly enough to keep me going...if you are sedentary and don't exercise sure...but even then minimums...
  • I set it myself under goals.... That being said yes my calories are a bit lower. I am at 1500 and my macros are 45, 25(fat) 30 (Not 40 my apologies)at the moment trying to get rid of the covid 5 I have on my frame and maybe an extra 5 for cushion. as for lean mass that's hard to get without a scan or estimating hence the…
  • I do that always...my secret is to log my treat first. When I was here initially I ate a serving of chocolate every night and still managed to hit my deficit goals and macros. so it can be done if you think it out. I remember hitting my calorie and macro goals even using Macdonalds food items... PS I am 48 (49 this year)…
  • Yup this is what I do as well.
  • Nuts are a source of fat not so much protein.....same with beans more carbs really. Proteins best source is meat and cheese or other dairy products. For OP not sure why your protein goal is sooooo high tho....but with it being that high you will really need to concentrate on getting in lots of lean meats/fish (PS we…
  • and that's my point....you cut my comment off...and that takes it out of context. If you have had a healthy relationship with food it will continue....as I said in my first comment (which you deleted out without indicating you have) having a healthy relationship with food is built based on years of "building it" from when…
  • except Zucchini etc are carbs.... I believe what you crave are starches.... not to be picky but that is a bit different. and my question would be is it cravings? or is it because you say no to these things all the time and you aren't feeling "satisfied" with your intake...and that means something totally different when it…
  • "starvation mode" as understood by the general population is not a "real thing"
  • no your fine....2500 would be maintenance based on other calculators. But yes 2lbs a week is pretty good. As for starvation mode....no. Simple answer. But logging is tricky too....using correct entries is as important as weighing food in grams and logging it all. As well remember that there are stress hormones that can…
  • it doesn't hinder it either for the most part.... having a healthy relationship with food is built based on years of "building it" from when you are a child to now... I "treat" myself with food all the time...high calorie foods are a treat and as long as I've done my work I will reward myself....
  • The assumption here is that people are following the same guidelines/calorie setup as you are. I do not. I follow TDEE and set my calories for that....but My fitbit is sync'd in too...so it adds calories to my total. I will often complete my diary and it will be "under my calorie goals" but I hit TDEE goal.... So if…
  • if your main concern weight gain adjust your calories. This is why I have always mentioned not using exercise as a method of calorie control and weight loss because there will come a time when you can't exercise....either due to injury, time or desire. Exercise is for health and fitness calories and food intake for weight…
