  • Try a cup of hot coffee with 1 tsp of l-theanine powder and 2 tablespoons of horizon heavy cream (occassionaly you can also sprinkle in half a tsp of Hershey special dark cocoa powder). And it helps to have a standard multivitamin everyday to keep y…
  • (Quote) This video is very helpful for finding what to eat on OMAD! :)
  • Jack Daniels. I have it once every couple of months.
  • If you eat one big meal a day, it could help you with your diet if you're looking for more satisfying meals that require a bigger number of calories. However, certain meals at high calorie ranges are so bulky that you might experience a lot of indig…
  • Yesterday: 123 lbs. Maintenance range: 120 to 125 lbs. I usually check my weight once or twice a week. This week however, I only checked my weight once. And I am tempted not to check it at all if I am just doing the same thing to maintain my weight…
  • 130 squats 100 heel raisers with variations in different angles to target my big toes and my pinky toes :D 30 pushups and a 1 minute plank 60 bicycle style ab crunches 40 back extensions lying on my stomach basically and crunching backwards 10 pul…
  • Do more body-weight squats, like a 100 a day every other day that you're not running if you like to run every other day. Squats strengthen your legs so much and as a result you'll move faster with greater ease and more control.
  • (Quote) Same here! I inevitably eat at maintenance during my period. On day 1 of my period and before my period, I don't really get sugar cravings. But when day 2 hits, I feel such an intense sugar craving and cravings generally for larger portions…
  • It depends on if your making your own food. I personally spend $30 on grocery for the week, and I don't eat out because that would bring the expenses up some more, especially since I live New York City.
  • I've found the calorie calculator useful for determining maintenance calories. You can google "calorie calculator", type in your body stats, and get your maintenance calories that way. I also check my weight every 3 to 4 days to check, mon…
  • Body stats: 5'7"; 124 lbs. Maintenance range: 120 to 125 lbs. Week 4 of March: 124 lbs.
  • I'm not really a breakfast eater myself. I usually just have a cup of coffee, black or with heavy cream, in the morning. And on the days I'd like something sweet too in the morning, I have a banana or a plain baked sweet potato along with my coffee …
  • Here's a great ab workout including bicycle crunches with Lacey Stone. Cheers! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5bvQCNdFMc
  • Try bicycle crunches. And if you don't already, use a padded mat to support your back. https://www.amazon.com/GoFit-Aerobic-Floor-Mat-24/dp/B0007W2FC2/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=gofit+mat&qid=1553891607&s=exercise-and-fitness&sr=1-1-fk…

  • Sounds awesome! Enjoy it!
  • Exercise to me is like breathing. I don't take a rest from it. However, I don't work out strenuously every day. For instance, for 5 days of the week, I do a morning cardio style calisthenics routine before work, then I jog 4 miles Fridays and Sunday…
  • What kind of vegetarian are you? I like eggs and dairy, so I would prescribe 1.5 cup of dry Quaker Quick One Minute oats with water, black pepper, ground cinnamon and a tablespoon of sunflower oil microwaved for 6 minutes. And for your protein, I wo…
  • I used to weigh daily, but since I have been maintaining the same balanced eating style, I now sometimes weigh myself once or twice a week, usually after getting 8 to 12 hours of sleep on Friday nights.
  • (Quote) Hey, I feel for you, and I hope you get better soon enough to resume more active exercise. But with bike riding, unless you're doing it a relatively controlled bicycle lane in a park, you're putting yourself at risk of getting injured by to…
  • Those studies are impressing on people moreover the importance of monitoring their cholesterol levels. As such, balance is key. For instance, this past week, I had 8 whole eggs scrambled for dinner. But I don't eat eggs every day of the week--maybe …

  • I personally find heavy breakfasts makes some people feel lazier during the day (think of the post-Thanksgiving-dinner feeling). I much prefer to eat my main meal later in the afternoon or in the evening, between 3PM to 6PM or anytime after work, wh…
  • My breakfast is pretty low calorie, comprised of a cup of coffee with or without a tablespoon of heavy cream. And I don't take my coffee with sugar, honey, or any of the other sweeteners, because I usually eat a banana (on the days I'm craving somet…
  • My dad has a body like the musician Prince all his life. He practices a balanced eating style and eats only one main meal a day. The rest is coffee with a splash of cream and pieces of fruit to snack on until afternoon/evening time comes again. Actu…
  • (Quote) You're welcome! :) Best wishes on your health and fitness goals!
  • I'm not much of a morning person either, but since I know I'll be physically tired at the end of the day and would not want to exercise at that time, I've gotten in the habit of exercising within 15 minutes of waking up. I do accordingly work out at…
