  • I lost like 32 lbs in 10 weeks on 4:3. Unfortunately I reverted back to my old ways and gained 20 back but trying this one more time. ADF/4:3 really works and is easy for the most part for you new peeps who are just starting and a bit apprehensive. To me 5:2 was a little harder to get into a routine so I fast m-w-f and eat…
  • WEll when you run outside you have that extra push off on every step that helps the muscles whereas the TM belt propels your legs for you. Try doing it an incline of 1-2 on the TM. That helps a bit better to simulate outside running that just lfat on the TM
  • Running with someone really helps. Other than that....maybe run to an area you are not as familiar with so you have a change of scenery. Maybe use a diff play list for later in the run with some newer music you havent used before. Hell..reward yourself with something you wanted after the long run.
  • ...of course the waiter wants you to do that so you are hungrier an order more. Bigger order = bigger tip!
  • and eating hardly any calories per day......
  • Ask a doctor. I know a lady who would run darn near up to her delivery date on pretty much all her children.
  • Previous co worker would tell her friend it was OK to borrow points from future days on Weight Watchers. One week they ran out of calories after I think 3 days of borrowing forward. Same people who would wait until midnight to order from dominoes pizza and eat the whole thing because i twas a new day with a new allotment…
  • The 5 bite diet. At your meal time you can have 5 bites of ANY one food you enjoy and you will lose weight.
  • Look at the c25k plan and pick up in the middle dependent on your current ability or use the backwards planning and do the last 3 weeks of the program. It is doable if you have some endurane built up. If you have not been that strict then maybe run every other day. Another option is this tha MAY work for you. The c25k…
  • When you run at an incline on the treadmill you simulate running outside much better than if you did it at zero. WHen running outside you have to push off on every step whereas the TM the belt propels your legs to make it easier. So if you are looking to improve your running time outside and do alot of your training on the…
  • 2 hour long workout? Ramp up the intensity and go much less. No reason your gym workout needs to be 2 hours long.

  • True. A pound of fat weighs the same as a pound of muscle. But if you look at what a pound of fat looks like compared to a pound of muscle...that lb of fat is much bigger and I am pretty sure that is the context I see it used most. Or they say that muscle weighs more than fat to explain how a body is transforming and even…
  • You would end up losing weight but probably feeling pretty crappy if you only net that much in day every day. There are calculators on here to help you determine how many to eat and the min I think is 1200. If you try to net that much you most likely wont be sticking with it very long.
  • Goodluck. Races are a BLAST! Just remember to go slow at the beginning. You can wear yourself out in the first half mile if you are not careful! I set my GPS watch with pace alerts for races to beep when I go too fast or too slow and early on I always find myself having to slow down!
  • Its only been like 15 minutes. Chill. One thing to be careful about a HRM is that although it may be better than a machine in counting cals burned, it is still an estimate using the program that company uses. I use the garmin 305 gps watch and sometimes strap on the HRM to guage the intensity of my workouts and pay zero…
  • Before you get new shoes though..did this start right after the new shoes? Or have you been in them for quite awhile and maybe need replaces?
  • After you complete the program I would suggest testing to see how it goes. Run back to back days with a rest. Repeat. Then run 3 days, off 1. Then if you want...run 4 and one off and keep testing. I prefer to run 5 days a week. I usually take of Tues/Friday off so I bascially run 3, 1 off, run 2, 1 off. Being a new runner…
  • 90 minutes is alot of time at the gym. YOu can probably cut that in half and workout more intensely and not be as bored.
  • Oh, she probably was eating dirty food with like dirt and stuff on it, and now she has one bit dirt clod in the stomach making her gain on the scale. That is what you meant by eating clean right?
  • What are your goals? If your goal is losing weight then I wouldnt necessarily subscribe to forcing calories after working out just for muscle recovery. If your goal is more shaping, and needing to get the most of each workout, things like that then I would look into the benefits of Chocolate milk. Cheaper and studies show…
  • \Unless they are the exact same model number then they may not be the "Same" kind. Even when they come out with an updated model (like Cumulus 10 to a 11 or whatever) they can change enough that you will notice. It was one bad day where you were really sore? Eh, it happens. Heal up and go back at it. How many miles do you…
  • I have a thing I call Hell Week that I do every couple of months and it is where I get in at least two mile runs in the morning AND evening each day for a week That is pretty hard on the body. However if you are asking about maybe running at one point, and doing something else another part of the day....I imagine if your…
  • No, it is not a bad idea. Fueling for a run is mostly intended if you are racing, or doing some hard core training aiming for optimal results. With being a beginner 5K training you are just starting to run so if running in a fasted state works best for you then keep at it. I usually only eat within 4-5 hours of a run when…
  • She sounds like a party girl. We likey a party girl!
  • When you get to the body sculpting stage is when you really need to focus not just on the calories in vs calories out, but also the type of food you are eating. Same can be said about serious athletes and getting the best bang for your buck when it comes to performance and workouts. but for the most of us who are just…
  • Ha...true! I always have part of a monster java drink about an hour before a weigh in, or black coffee, as that always makes me go within 45 minutes!
  • Find some foods you like there that would keep you within your caloric range for the day. Pretty simple.
  • It can fluctuate by a few pounds DAILY. My suggestion would be to weigh in the same day per week, at the same time, wearing the same thing/naked. To take things a bit further and to ensure a more accurate reading, the day before make sure you are very regimented in what you eat/drink. When I weigh in I dont eat or drink…
  • Sure it is realistic. Google HM plans. Most are around 12 weeks and start you off at 3 mile runs. Biggest thing to be true to on those plans is the weekly long run increaing the mileage. The other stuff is OK too, but make sure you get that LR in each week.
  • As a beginner, I would sugges going every other day if you can. Once that really gets into a routine and you want to amp it up then run two days, off a day. REPEAT. Biggest thing you dont want to do is rush it though at the beginning. You can get injuries and mental burnout if you try too much, too soon. Check out the c25k…
