  • In general I look at all of this as a three-legged stool - in the context that most of us have a couple of reasons for wanting to lose weight. It's usually a combination of wanting to be healthier and to look better. Also, "losing weight" is not u…
  • Yes. It matters to fitness. It can help with weight fat loss, but only if you are in a caloric deficit. If you had a choice between owning a food scale or a bathroom scale, pick the food scale. Once you get used to using one, it gets surprising…
  • The biggest key for protein, when it seems hard to reach, is to concentrate more on lean sources. Tuna, chicken, other fish are good. Pork tenderloin has a lot of protein bang per gram - just finished about 6 oz for lunch. Egg whites are good too…
  • I can't speak specifically for OT, but let me ask you this.... If you were to start, progress and get fit, what would you think about somebody in their 50s and 200 pounds walking in next year? Would you likely support them? If your answer is yes,…
  • Hello Jon. Prior to answering, I was one of those who was not exactly patient with you awhile back when you had asked about the different programs and what you wanted to do. So I wanted to apologize for that. To answer your question, there are man…
  • I ran your numbers through this website (the one I use): https://www.niddk.nih.gov/bwp with the assumption that your activity level is very light - i.e. desk job with light activity. Its output was about 2250 kcal per day. Given your numbers, 1800…
  • If you are willing to share your current height/weight/age, we can check out which one your PT is referring to fairly easily (as an alternative)
  • I see these kinds of numbers recommended for those who do a lot of strength training. Barbell Medicine might be the most reputable of those who recommend high protein, but there are several. At 5'11"/ 205 lb, those recommendations for me are about…
  • Agree with the 80/20 in general. Because the activity part of our calorie burn is relatively small, consumption is a far bigger driver for most of us - and it's the easiest to modify. But I live by 3 things, because for most of us it's about more …
  • ...but according to the fittest woman in the world it works magic. And....you can have it in the form of gummies now. Hurry while supplies last! /sarc off. ACV is great in some recipes. I make my favorite salad dressing with a little bit of it.
  • Get a food scale. J/K. Everybody's weight fluctuates throughout the day. If it's fluctuating by the minute, it could be as simple as batteries. I stopped worrying about the bathroom scale a long time ago. If I use my food scale properly and log…
  • I was 50-something a couple of years ago with 3 teenagers when I started. Control diet first (doesn't have to be "clean" - whatever that means; just eat enough protein, support your body's energy and eat in a reasonable deficit if you want to lose …
  • If you wanna make "big" changes, I'd recommend making small changes over time. In my profession the biggest thing I learned early on is that big project is just a whole bunch of small projects strung together. One of the surest ways to short circu…
  • I don't think you need to go that low. I started at about 245 - also at 54 (two years ago). I lost 50 pounds eating around 2200 kcal per day. I may have a walked a little bit more, but if you really are only eating 1400 calories, you'll soon find…
  • Not planning to be your Keto pal, since 1) I don't do keto and 2) I'm a man. But...I would encourage you to ensure that you eat in a deficit whether you use keto or not. Because male or female, we all lose weight the same way: eat less calories t…
  • Didn't say they were "incorrect". You're putting words in my mouth. Not the first time in this thread. You said "You don't know anyone who has done well in MLM" in your response to me. You would have no basis in that assertion and I refuted it. …
  • This is a thread about Isagenix, and to some extent about its MLM practices. So I won't take it much further. But... 1. You don't know...and cannot know whether I have "done the research". 2. Making money from a downstream network is not a pyram…
  • The thing is...they actually work on many of the same principles that other products do, but they give easy entry into a non-traditional distribution method.. And for the record, in order for something to be an actual pyramid - in the illegal sense…
  • +1 on the Strong app. It's free and if you're a lifter (or even somebody who doesn't consider themselves a lifter - just somebody to lifts some) it's hard to beat. The library of lifts is extensive, and you can even add your own if you don't see o…
  • Actually because of the herd mentality of peers, the process, and need for funding, you really have to also be wary of those. If there were peer reviews 500 years ago, nobody would have ever believed or funded an expedition around the world. (Hype…
  • Again, it really depends on what you want. There is a skinny/fat extreme you can get to at 175, or there is muscular extreme you can get to. Each one would give you the same BMI, but they might have radically different body fat percentages. You m…
  • Not really. At least not in the way you might expect. If 175 is your goal weight, and assuming that's with a healthy body fat percentage, getting to 185 means a 1.6 lb/wk goal. If you ate the number of calories necessary to do that, you will burn…
  • I sure wish that I would have gone there when I lived there. Spent most of my growing up years in the Seattle area and then 15 or so more of my adult life there and yet missed so much of what it has to offer. Beautiful area up there. Brother is i…
  • If you eat within your calorie goals it should not matter. If you have specific macro goals you want to hit, you can adjust those in your goals. But remember it's difficult to hit all of them right on the nose. For most, hitting the protein goal …
  • The only way I'd buy a peloton is if they included the ridiculously posh settings they're advertised in. Of course it doesn't help that I'm not a fan of stationary bikes to begin with. B)
  • It depends on your size and the intensity. You can search on line for various calculators. What I did when I was doing more running is took a sample of 3 of them. They were all in the same ballpark with each other. If the profile pic is you, I'm…
  • Not a lot of advertised HIIT is actually HIIT. It is actually very difficult to do the real thing more than a couple of times per week. As to logging, calisthenics is probably a good choice.
  • I love the dead lift. I hate the dead lift. I love the dead lift. I hate the dead lift. Man do I love the benefits of the dead lift. I hate failing a dead lift rep. I started lifting for the first time at 54. I'm 5'11, 200-205 lbs. One of my…
  • I'd like for you to understand that because you are not reacting to the way that most intended their posts to be, then it follows that there is no way for many of us to even know what kind of posts you intend to read in response. Mine was among th…
  • @82EC I sincerely hope you consciously reset how you read things. It seems to me that there is some confirmation bias going on here. If you are looking for things in what people say to be negative, you'll have no trouble finding it. If you assume…
