  • 1633 days later, I still need the app to keep on track with my macros.

  • The only way to lose the stomach fat is to continue doing what you're doing until its gone. Eat at a deficit. Back in 2016 I managed to hit my goal, surpass it, and STILL did not lose it all. I stopped, began a bulk and cut cycle and pretty much just live with it. But if you want it gone, you have to keep losing weight…

  • Walk in a pool. If you have no way to build up tolerance by walking in water in a lake near by (or ocean depending on where you live), then look into local pools or YMCA. It can help relieve stress on your joints but allow you to work up your stamina. Just a thought.
  • What matters, on any diet, is the calorie deficit. If you eat Keto but are in a calorie surplus, guess what happens? You'll still lose the water weight and it'll look like you're losing weight at first but you'll eventually gain weight. So eat however you want and use the calorie deficit for weight loss. The only reason I…
  • For me, I consider myself sedentary at all times. The reasoning behind it is that I work a desk job for 8+ hours a day M-F, then when I get home I generally spend my evening hours cooking, eating, and then going to bed with the exception of yard work or house cleaning from time to time. Exercise is logged as I do it (5-6…

  • MFP doesn't do net carbs at all. You will have to do that calculation yourself. Just make sure you have carbs and fiber as one of your tracked macros. At the end of the day just subtract the fiber from your total carbs and you'll know how many carbs you have eaten for a day. I do wish it had a column for net carbs but…
  • One thing you didn't mention, do you weigh/log all food you intake? You can exercise up a storm every day and if you eat more than you burn, you're going to gain weight. Judging portion sizes simply doesn't work, even if you use measuring cups. You also can't trust labels on pre-packaged foods, they can be off by up to…

  • I have lower back issues, so I can relate. I do some yoga stretches for my lower back before I plank. It's not really a warm up, it's just to relieve the pain and stiffness I usually have in the mornings. You can google them if you want, it may help. For me, it's from previous herniated discs, but I found that the…
  • I'll join in this month for 60. Been spending more time with other core exercises lately but really should get back to planking! Thanks for keeping the challenge going! July 1st, None, Planking Rest Day Total for July 0 minutes, 60 left to go!
  • First of all 3lbs means nothing. I've personally gained up to 7 lbs in ONE NIGHT of eating a huge high-sodium meal then lost it a few days later doing nothing different. If you're a woman (your profile doesn't say) this may even affect you more than a man at different times of the month. As far as eating 1600 cals a day,…
  • It's really really easy to eat that much peanut butter. Don't feel bad. The average peanut butter sandwich people make has between 2 and 3 servings of peanut butter anyway. A couple of those, which I can easily eat, and you'd be at 4-6 servings x 180+ calories per serving. 6 servings = 1000+ calories. That's not a half a…
  • There's actually so much I would do differently it's hard to choose. Fitness would be one thing. However, the one thing I'd probably direct most of my effort toward is spending more time with the loved ones I've lost since then.

  • I used to not count lifting because I'd rest between sets, and honestly it doesn't burn that much. However a couple years ago I turned it into circuit training by switching muscle groups, or doing other exercises between sets rather than resting. I now calculate it somewhere between walking and running as far as calorie…
  • This. Stop using the fitbit for a while. If it has a HR monitor, sure use that if you're trying to hit target heart rates, but otherwise stop letting it tell you your calorie burn. MFP has a decent database which you can use to estimate calories burned for exercise, try manually entering it for a while. See what happens…
  • Although I understand trying to lose weight as quick as possible I'd have to agree. The OP could probably move up to around 1800-2000 cals/day and still lose weight at a decent pace. If the OP is going to add in the gym the calories will need to increase anyway, likely a couple hundred a day on average for what is…
  • I'm 6'2" tall, and currently somewhere in the 235lb range. I originally started with MFP in 2015 (weighed 305+ then), shot down to 187lbs in about 14 months, maintained it for a while (that was 1700 cals/day plus about 50% of exercise calories), then started bulking and cutting off and on for the next two years. Started a…

  • I'm in for 60 minutes. Depending on time might do more. Thanks again for continuing the challenge! Starting out... May 1st, None, Planking Rest Day Total for May, 0 minutes, 60 left for goal.
  • Thank you @jeffrey_ad! I was tempted to ask you to do it, but didn't want to impose. I appreciate it, and I'm sure everyone here does as well. I'll do my best to promote it as we go along, and will join in a reduced capacity myself.
  • Last day everyone! Get those last few planks in. I barely squeezed my last 10 minutes in this morning. I have an announcement, I am probably not going to continue the challenge past this month. If someone else wants to continue it, they are certainly welcome and can copy/paste any of the material in the main post to do so.…
