Last year I did pretty good. I basically ate whatever I wanted over the last month and gained 10 pounds though. I'm at 220 with a goal weight of 175. I have to be at 198 maximum by next fall though with some other fitness goals thrown in as requirements, so I have a bit of motivation on my side!

I'm in it to win it this year!

A friend of mine who is a personel trainer had this advice: If it was running, crawling, swimming or growing from the ground 100 years ago, go ahead and eat it. If not, stay away.

January 1st weight: 280 (I will get a scale shot if necessary)
Height: 6'8"
Waist: 36"
Estimated BMI: 30

Goal weight: 240

1. Cut Alcohol
2. Cut Soda
3. Eat eggs
4. Eat oats
5. Eat soup

Reduce alcohol, cut soda completely. Calories from liquid are the dumbest thing in the world if it doesn't include protein(not that kind). Drink water or tea.

Eat lean meats(chicken and fish rule over red meats), raw vegetables, have a salad or an apple or something small 10-15 minutes before a meal to cut your appetite so you don't overeat. Try not to get second helpings of anything in excess.

On the other hand, don't starve yourself. You'll just end up being skinny-fat because your body will burn muscle mass instead of fat, AND you'll feel like shit.

I don't think so. Lacking proper caloric intake and balanced protein/fat/carb intake, your body will sacrifice its own proteins first because it's easier to use as energy. This is why you can be "skinny", but retain high body fat percentage and still be at high risk for obesity related diseases.

Starvation mode is a state in which the body is responding to prolonged periods of low caloric intake levels. During short periods of caloric abstinence, the human body will burn primarily free fatty acids from body fat stores. After prolonged periods of starvation the body has depleted its body fat and begins to burn lean tissue and muscle as a fuel source

No, this is absolute nonsense. If you have a high body fat percentage, it's because you are not working out and you're eating too much.

Top 10 Fasting Myths Debunked (http://www.leangains.com/2010/10/top-ten-fasting-myths-debunked.html)

It is a good idea to take an occasional diet break, though (this is known as a refeed). Extended calorie restriction can drop leptin levels, which can suppress the metabolism through the thyroid.

Leptin (http://blog.cholesterol-and-health.com/2010/11/is-insulin-resistance-really-making-us.html)

Dieting/Overfeeding (http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/muscle-gain/calorie-partitioning-part-2.html)

I have controlled my weight since the first of November by intermittent fasting (IF). I was eating pretty much whatever I wanted but only between 12 - 8 pm (in reality, it normally works out to 3-8 pm). Between Christmas Eve and New Year's, I opened up that eating window and ate too much junk and puffed up 10 pounds. I returned to IFing Sunday and have already dropped 2 of those pounds.

I am getting serious about getting back down into the 160's again, so will throw my hat into the ring in this thread. My starting weight is 199.2 lbs. I will do measurements and whatnot on the weekend.

You might be surprised. I started a zero carb diet in April '08 at almost identical stats as yours (I'm 5'11" and 46 years old, BTW) and was down to 169 lbs by November and could have stood going lower. I really never, ever expected to be that low since I hadn't seen that weight since high school.

Unfortunately, I had a hard time sticking with it last year and regained most of the weight, though I am actually smaller now than I was at the same weight before starting ZC.

Restarted on the South Beach on Monday. Plus exercise most every day. Doing phase 1 now. Currently 6'2" and 240 with 42 waist. Should drop to 190. So 50 lbs is the goal.

Did the same routine about 5 years ago and got down to 190 and kept it there for a year or two. Until the wife got pregnant and then the diet routine crashed. Then since he was born, the exercise routine crashed.

So back at.

I know I do better with small goals, so my goal right now is 250. When I hit that, I'll revise my goals. But if I say 220 right now, that's too much to lose in my mind and I won't get serious, and I'll stay unmotivated, even after losing 10-15 pounds. So manageable, reachable goals for me, then re-evaluation.

Day 2 of WeightWatchers Online for Men is going well. I'm liking their new "PointsPlus" plan...seems to make even more sense than the old one.

The new plan factors in fat, carbs, protein, and fiber. In addition, pretty much all fruits and vegetables are now 0 points which is great.

If anyone is looking for a plan to follow, you should check it out.

Eat Several Smaller Meals

Diets regularly recommend eating five or so small meals a day rather than three big meals. The major claim is that it boosts your metabolism (your body's digestion engine is always churning to digest), but it also helps level out your appetite a bit. This is easy enough to understand from personal experience—most of us are more likely to binge when we've let ourselves get very hungry. After denying yourself food for hours, your much more likely to go overboard when you do eat. The key is balance: You can only get away with eating several smaller meals during the day if you're spreading out your calories. LiveStrong has a nice little guide to getting your intake right.

As an added bonus, dieters who stick to several meals a day do a better job at sticking to their diet because the more consistent energy you get from your several meals actually helps you exert more self-control.

There are conflicting reports everywhere about nutrition. All I can tell you is that if I eat throughout the day, I eat better.

If I've had a piece of fruit or something mid-morning, I'm going to be less tempted to overeat at lunch. Somebody with stronger willpower than I might not care about that, but frequent eating is what works for me.

You have to do what you have to do. I do know a lot of people though, that have a hard time stopping once they start eating in the day. The "frequent small meals" ends up being an excuse to overeat all day long.

I totally agree with the different strokes for different folks mantra. Whatever works for an individual is plenty good enough.

For me, I found myself hungry as shit for 2 weeks. It was a struggle, and a major commitment. After that though, it became normal, and I didn't even get hungry before about 4pm.

That was actually my point, which, as usual, I didn't make very well. Too many people fail at losing weight because they slavishly stick with something that doesn't work for them because it's the conventional wisdom. Myths like "eat 6 small meals a day to ramp up your metabolism" are repeated ad naseum despite have zero credible science behind it (plus it doesn't make sense from an evolutionary point of view). I was throwing out counterpoints in case someone wanted a different point of view and other options to try. I personally don't care what people do as there is no right way to lose weight for everyone and it's hard as hell as it is.

I usta be 6' 0" most of my life, but I lost an inch due to vertebral disc compression resulting from DDD. Frame is a 6' guy, just squished down a bit.

I searched for my "I'm not fat!" thread of 2008 & my weight was down to 182. I think I can do that again. Here's a pick of me at 183 way back when I was 27 (I'm the guy on the left with flowers in his hair):

Dang, I knew there was a reason I liked you...

I'd be in but I'm not trying to lose weight. Rather, if it happens now that I'm working out then great. If not, then so be it. Too many times I've tried to do both and would fail to lose weight or continue exercising because I failed one or the other. I hope that separating the two in my mind will help keep me motivated.

Losing inches and gaining muscle is nice even if the scale isn't where you hoped it would be. I am using Tosca Reno as my inspiration though I'm not strictly following her diet.

I have been doing 'Bodypump' types of workouts. I feel great.

Are you talking that "I Used to be Fat" show? Yes, it's unrealistic for people like you and me, but probably not all that unrealistic for guys that get personal trainers everyday for 110 days straight, while working out 6-8 hours a day. Throw in a very strict eating plan to go along with that, and it equals guys that are (in the case of that show and shows like The Biggest Loser) obese to morbidly obese being able to shed weight like that.

I've always heard that if you lose 2-4 lbs a week, it's the healthiest way to go about it, and it increases your chances of keeping it off, if you're looking to dump more than a handfull of pounds.

This is the deal. One pound a day on average is about the max you want to lose. The first few days 2 pounds is not unrealistic ans you may have some water retension from your diet before. The reason I don't suggest more than that is you have toxins in your fat that your body is cleaning out which can be very hard on you if you lost it too fast. I just lost 20 pounds in 28 days and I wasn't running my program as strictly as I could have. If you recall I spent the vast majority of my life in the health club field and know many professional; trainers. You want lose at a pound a day rate it is very easy. First thing in the morning do a strenuous cardio routine, I suggest 30 minutes or so. Do this at least every other day. Breakfast is a whey protein shake, find a good one. When you digest that you can have your coffee for the day if you do that. The rest of your day will be eating raw veggies and lean proteins with one piece of fruit. Your last meal is strictly protein 3 hours before you go to bed. You will shed like a MF'er.

An extremely fat person can lose an incredible amount of weight when they first start out, but it's about like an average person losing 2 lbs when you consider the proportions of the individual.

I should have add a couple things. An anaerobic activity in the evening helps big time and will increase your natural testosterone level along with burning calories.. Lifting weights is great. BTW I highly suggest a good yoga class when you can get them in. I could do the next 30 minutes on why but in a nutshell it will increase your flexibility, work core, help your knees through all the cardio, burn calories and make you feel much better. You should drink a lot of alkalized water to kep properly hydrated. YOu can buy it or make your own by squeezing lemons into water. The reason why is your body is dumping tons of toxins and acid in you fat and this will help neutralize that acid. YOu also have tons of shit in your intestine that you don't need in there. Get some psyllium and take it every late afternoon to early evening to help you get the shit out literally. The best psyllium I have ever found is sold at Trader Joe's and has little egyption guys on the label. I hope at least one guy follows this so you guys can take from somebody but myself. This is a healthy, awsome way to dump a pound a day.

I'd like to get in on this. Been dieting since Jan 1st. My brother was in town over the hollidays and I just ate and drank like crazy the whole time. Hit 220+ for the first time in my life. I am using Ori Hoffmekler's Warrior Diet, which is a "one big meal at the end of the day" eating plan. I've done this twice before and had great success with it.

I have been strict all month and my most recent (before my meal) weight was 207. I'm calling it 13 lbs, even though I'm sure my 220 was a bloated weight. Likely closer to 6 or 7 lbs of actual fat loss so far.

The goal is to do what I did two years ago (when I topped out at 210 and dropped to 172 using this diet). Except I don't want to quit after I reach it. Need to make lifestyle changes so I stay fit. I have a very thin frame and not a ton of muscle, so at six foot I should probably be a skinny 160-165 then try to add some muscle to get back into the 170s.

Im kinda late to the party this year but I have been dieting and exercising since right around Christmas and I'm down 17lbs. I have gotten in the "fat boy contest" the past 2 years and had good overall success and havent really gained a WHOLE lot from year to year but I have had trouble sticking with it. A little over a year ago I weighed in around 360. Started eating right and exercising and by last summer my lowest weight was 288. I weighed in around Christmas at 304 and weighed in yesterday at 287 without a whole lot of exercise, but eating right. Got back into my 38" waste clothes and it feels pretty good. Once the weather starts to warm up I will be more apt to get my butt in gear on the exercise. Sounds like you all are doing pretty well so far. Good job and keep it up.

Stats:

227 lbs 5'11", muscular build with a nice growing layer of beer fat. ;)

Stated Goal: Drop down below 200 to 195

I plan on doing so by using the treadmill in the morning before anything else, minimum 30 minutes, eating healthy, and weights a minimum of 3 nights a week.

If I slip up and skip the treadmill in the morning I will swim laps at my community center sometime that day or night.

If I don't eat healthy I will fast throughout the following day on fruits & veggies along with lean meats and green tea. Low carbs.

If I don't go to the gym 3 days a week to lift I will make it up with 2 a days until missed workouts are caught up.

32 lbs in 52 weeks.

I am ready to stop making excuses and make my health my number 1 priority.

That's not fasting.

You don't need to do weights more than 4 days nights a week. Don't overdo it. 2 a days are overkill.

It is in my world. ;) Any days without beer is fasting but I really need to lay off for a while and give my body a break, I am definitely not 25 any more and its starting to show.

As for the weights I have been lifting semi-regularly since high school, but I need to stop this once or twice a week if that garbage. If it means fitting in a two a day here or there so be it. 3 sessions a week minimum. I know you only grow when you rest and will take that into consideration.

Thanks for the feedback.

Have you seen the cauliflower lasagne recipe?

http://denver.yourhub.com/Longmont/Blogs/Archive/Blog~435499.aspxCauliflower Lasagna!


1 cup (about 5 ounces) cooked cauliflower, grated, riced or shredded
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (6 ounces)
1 egg
*½ cup ricotta cheese (3.5 ounces) (mixing an egg in with this improves the texture, but is optional)
3/4 cup tomato sauce or alfredo (6-7 ounces)
Toppings (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray the inside of a glass bread pan (9X3) with non-stick spray.

Mix prepared, riced cauliflower with one cup of the mozzarella and the egg in a bowl.

To arrange:

1. Layer the bottom with ¼ cup sauce. Distribute gently with a spoon. Do not add toppings yet.

2. Layer with 1/2 of the cauliflower mix. Press down very gently with fingers after distributing evenly.

3. Layer with 1/2 of the ricotta by dotting it on in small piles and then spreading slightly.

4. Add 1/2 of the remaining sauce. With a spoon, spread and slightly mix the two layers (ricotta and sauce) for better coverage.

5. Add half of the toppings you've prepared. (If there are none, proceed to the next step.)

6. Layer with ½ of the mozzarella cheese.

7. Add the rest of the cauliflower mix and spread and press down gently. (I use my hands)

8. Add the rest of the sauce.

9. Add the rest of the toppings. (If there are none, proceed to the next step)

10. Add the rest of the ricotta and spread with a spoon as well as is possible. It will be a little more bumpy, so no worries if the uniformity isn't there (friends tell me that mixing the ricotta with egg creates a better texture and greater spreading ease. Thank you!)

11. Add the rest of the mozzarella cheese.


Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes, or until bubbly and the cheese is golden/brown. Let rest for 15 minutes before serving.

Yeah, I know. But if I don't go hard-core for at least the first couple weeks, I have a very difficult time getting into a rhythm where I can cheat and not continue to cheat for the next three days.

Once I get into my routine, I'll do a single cheat meal per week. Last time I was successful at this, that's what I did. And I found a single cheat meal was enough for me.

But I have to set that routine before I do any of that.

Count Alex's Losses

It's 0 carb apart from the tomato sauce.

Pork Rind Crust Pizza
1 bag pork rinds -- crushed
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 eggs -- beaten

Add all the ingredients and mix well. Press into a non-stick sprayed pie plate, bottom and sides. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. Add your toppings, and then rebake until cheese and toppings are hot. The recipe could easily be doubled to fit an actual pizza pan.

notes: Do not overcook this or it will be dry. I overcooked mine because I didn't want to it to come out too flimsy like the cauliflower was the first time (I didn't get the water out of it the first time I did it). After the crust is finished, let it cool for a bit before adding toppings. I prefer to broil the toppings.

It's also possible to make very low carb ice cream. I use heavy cream, eggs, splenda and chocolate protein powder. I don't even cook the eggs, so it's pretty simple. Live dangerously.

ABSTRACT

The dietary guidelines established under the auspices of public health policy are intended to promote healthy diets in the general public. The current recommendations for sodium intake stem from studies and publications that are older than much of the public they are designed to benefit. The past 2 decades have seen a dramatic increase in our knowledge of nutritional science, particularly our understanding of the role of sodium in blood pressure regulation. With a myriad of data from observational studies and randomized, controlled trials, we have the information to finally put sodium into its correct context in terms of its role in the regulation of blood pressure and hypertension. Not the sole and pervasive dietary villain it was once believed to be, sodium is but one factor in the complex interplay of multiple, inextricably related regulatory systems of which hypertension is the end result. With the data now available concerning dietary sodium, including the minimal and specific blood pressure effects of sodium in normotensive adults and both the benefits and risks of sodium reduction, future public health recommendations can be based on carefully acquired, consistent, and rational science.

In either case, this is a fat loss thread. Sodium content is irrelevant. Especially if you're exercising and losing a ton of sodium in the process.

Those same idiots will probably warn you not to eat saturated fat and make sure you're getting plenty of carbs every day. Old science dies hard.

Nice article from 11 years ago.

How about the friggin' New England Journal of Medicine, less than 30 days ago?

See how easy it is to find compelling articles and studies to support whatever claim you want?

"Just targeting slightly lower salt [intake] would have some benefit for everyone in the U.S.," says the study's lead author, Dr. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, an epidemiologist and assistant professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. "This is the ideal type of intervention for those who are interested in public health to get behind, because the effects would be so dramatic."

Alright, so the pork rinds I bought will make 4 pizzas. Check. I'm going to try this out tonight.

It's also worth noting that your source, The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, said in January that excess salt can lead to hardening of the arteries.

Granted, it's a small survey. But everything you're spouting is a decade old, and as you've mentioned here, a lot can change.

The crust on that pizza while edible, was not worth the calories so I scrapped it. It was soggy and soft. Solved a pizza Jones though.

You didn't do it right.

Did you let the crust cool after it baked, before adding toppings?

Not for long. Just a couple of minutes. Does it dry as it cools?
