For cardio I do prefer HIIT, it can be a killer compared to most other routines. I'm trying to work my way back into it as earlier this year I was doing 60 second sprints, 60 seconds rest 10 times.I just started the sprinting and only do it once a week.

I do 6 x 50 meters at half speed and then 6 x 50 all out with a 400 meter warm up.

The first attempt left my lower body in shambles. The 2nd attempt was better but I was still sore for 3 days and my latest attempt felt really good.

I'm surprised that there's so many muscles that I wasn't hitting with distance running, swimming or weights in the past.

I'll start mixing in hill sprints and working up to 100 meter workouts eventually.

Love that picture. I'm going to do a weigh in on 09/01 for anyone who wants too. I already know my approximate starting weight, and I'm purposely waiting until 10/01 to find out where I'm at. I don't want a scale to be a part of this process for the first 2-3 months. I'm going to weigh monthly just to make sure I'm hitting targets and for adjustment purposes. The last time I did this I obsessed over the scale way too much. I'd like to find something else to obsess over this time around. :)

Mr. BackseatModNuts
08-28-2012, 06:14 PM
Great. I'm pretty sore, but that's from getting off of my ass. I didn't officially go low carb until late this afternoon, as dinner reflects. I talked to Buck, so I know to expect the carb hangover, or whatever you want to call it. As far as low calories go, no big deal. I've ran 5 miles coming off of a 36 hour fast, so I know that eat before you workout stuff is bullshit. As long as you're getting enough protein everyday, the hunger goes away after a couple of weeks.

Haven't even looked. The fat requirement tastes great but nets less food. Low carb veggie increase is coming. Eggs will be a staple.

Lunch-left over beef short ribs slow cooked in tomato sauce/balsamic vinegar and dates with a side of diced carrots baked with diced dates (I used left over bacon grease on the carrots).

Dinner- chipolte cubed chicken breast cooked in coconut oil. I then used butter lettuce and made wraps with avacado and grape tomatoes. The chipotle seasoning was nice and spicy.

Post workout snack-banana with approximately 1 tbsp of buckwheat honey.

I don't eat breakfast.

Question since you're going keto.

Are you going zero carb or keeping it under 50?

Here's my bread and butter.

1 lb of 80/20 (85/15 is okay too) ground beef.
Half a can of diced tomatoes (get the ones that are seasoned with garlic or something Hunts brand I think.. this is optional)
~20 pepperoni slices
~1 cup of some Italian style shredded cheese.

1. Season the ground beef w/hamburger or Italian seasonings and brown and drain.

2. Turn to lowest heat setting and either put the half can of tomatoes (less juice the better) in the food processor and then into the pan or just the tomatoes right into the pan of ground beef. Mix. (optional)

3. Layer the pepperonis on top and let it simmer for about 5-10 min.

4. Layer the shredded cheese on top.

5. Put the pan under the broiler at 300 degrees for 4-6 min (until cheese is golden brown or less time if you just want cheese melted.

It's like Keto Pizza. The pic is this w/out the tomato sauce.

Did you know that having some type of protein within an hour after waking up gives you an extra boost of energy about 6 hours later? I quit drinking my protein shakes for breakfast for a little while (I'm not a breakfast person either), and I can definitely tell a huge difference come about 2pm.

For those drastically cutting calories, just remember that calories are energy. If you find that you're feeling more fatigued, then you may just need to try eating a bit more or drinking more water (don't want to cramp up).

So basically 80 calories and a banana has been my breakfasts as of late. Protein shakes start again next week, so no more coffee.

Just my $.02 for your guys doing keto. Make sure your eating a lot of green leafy veggies. Sautee some brocc or spinach in olive oil and garlic, its very good and helps 'move things aloong'. Definitely take a EFA/fish oil supplement, especially with all the sat fat your eating. Try to stay away from prcoessed crap meats like pepperoni, salami, etc. Also remember that total calories ultimately count, and its very easy to go over your daily cals since fat is double the cals of protein or carbs.

I used the metabolic diet (CKD) for about a year to get weight in check. It is a great diet, but absolutely sucks if your trying to lift any reasonably amount of weight, play a intense sport or build muscle. Takes a couple weeks for your body to adapt to fat as your main source of energy instead of carbs, so the first couple weeks suck, you have to push through it.

Good luck.

But I do understand that proteins and fresh fruits are a luxury for a small segment of our population, and I sympathize with them.

But there are way more people out there who don't know how to shop and prepare their own food and vastly overestimate the amount of money it costs, thinking instead that it's cheaper to just buy dollar meals from the nearest fast food joint (not counting you among those people, of course) or boxes of mac and cheese/TV dinners.

And I'm not so bad off that I have to worry about where my next meal is going to come from or anything. Obviously- I mean I'm sitting here in my apartment watching TV and browsing the internet.

I have a real hard time coordinating what and when I want to eat with the family dinner. My wife gets frustrated trying to plan meals and I usually just cave and eat what they eat. I also like to eat only when physically hungry and that doesn't always line up with when dinner is ready.

It will be a lot easier when the boys are out of the house. My wife doesn't mind simple dinners whenever but it's harder to do with two voracious teen boys in the house.

Fine maybe once a week. There's no way I'd eat that sh1t every day. I don't have a problem with the fat or protein content.. its the damn nitrates/nitrites they use a preservatives.You should look into the fancy stuff at an organic grocery store. Uncured and no nitrates.

It's tasty but like you it's not the kind of thing I'm going to eat everyday.

I'm married with two kids. My wedding ring doesn't stop me from eating half a sandwich for dinner once or twice a week.

I guess my issue is that I do all the cooking at my house. If I'm cooking it, I'm going to eat it.

The good part of that is, I do all the cooking. So we eat healthy (my wife is a health nut as well). The bad part is that if I were bringing home a sandwich to eat for supper, I'd be like, "Fuck it, you all cook your own food. I've got mine."

Six months ago I was a 224lb beer belly with legs. I began to wonder how come I was fat.... could it be lack of exercise, or maybe eating too much? Then I computed the calories that I was taking in. I like beer & the Lagunitas Brewing Co. (IPA) is just down the street from me. I live in wine country. Folks here drink wine like the folks in Seattle drink coffee. But I like beer. So I sucked down both the wine and the beer.... about 1,000 calories a day. I quit both.

But I need some kinda drug so I started drinking sugar-free energy drinks instead & now I get all nervous & stuff & have trouble sleeping but at least it doesn't make me fat so I just keep doing it but now I'm no fun at parties cuz I tend to talk too much & miss the cues when its time to go home & stuff like that. Went down to 190.

Meanwhile, I still have too much flab. Just cutting out alcohol and becoming a speed freak isn't enough. I will actually have to learn about nutrition & exercise if I am to have a healthy weight loss. Maybe this is a good place to start....

Lunch-left over chipolte chicken lettuce wraps with avacado. Plus a kiwi.

Dinner-heritage pork sage sausage with 3 scrambled eggs and 4 pumpkin pancakes (canned pumpkin, eggs, cinnamon, splash of real maple syrup, and vanilla).

And I swam a half mile after work at a leisurely pace.

I'm less likely to want to snack after an easy workout. The high intensity days seem to lead to more evening trips to the pantry.

If I'm reading the jacked up formatting right, you had 21 g of carbs, even with the milk.

That's ketogenic.

BTW, I would increase the protein quite a bit if you are going to stay that low carb. You'll lose muscle otherwise.

All we drink is Almond Milk around my house. It's freaking delicious. Of course, we drink the "original" which is sweetened. I've tried the regular (not vanilla) unsweetened, and it's pretty foul. I don't ever actually drink it by the glass, though, just use it in cereal and cooking and such. My kids, on the other hand, pound that shit.

Milk is pretty disgusting to me these days.

8oz of milk isn't going to make or break keto. I've seen keto guys down 16oz gatorade during lifting and still show trace amounts on ketostix. The <50g day rule is just something to shoot for, it really depends on your activity level.

There may be some mental benefit for you in separating your weight loss phase from your weight training phase, but there isn't any physiological. You can lift weights the entire time you're losing as well and likely accelerate that weight loss as well as make gains in your strength and overall fitness as you lose.

Sign me up. I have to come to terms with my size. When I got married in '96, I was around 235 at age 32, and as recently as July I popped in at 311. I'm 6'2", wearing a size 52 tall jacket. Waist fluctuates between 42 and 44. I turn 49 next month.

Since we started football practice with the boys 6th grade team, I've been more active, and am down to 303. I expect to crack 300 in the next week or so.

I have an irregular heart beat, and that gets to me, but I'm not restricted from exercise. The thing that restricts me the most are my knees, both reconstructed, no cartilage in my right knee. Will eventually have surgery, possible replacement on the right, but I'll put that off as long as possible.

It isn't even "likely", you lift weights and diet you will lose weight faster than diet and cardio or of course just diet. The general rule I keep reading is that you cardio burns calories for a little bit while lifting continues burns calories for 24 hours.

I loosely follow WW guidelines on food and basically alternate upper/lower lifting days with cardio and core the next. Take a day off every 3 days or so to let the body recover, and I tend to melt away at about 3 lbs a week. For the best weight loss from Cardio HIIT is the best way to go.

We seem to have similar routine but there are some slight differences.

My week breaks down like this (not every week is the same due to scheduling).

Monday - Heavy lifting - 20 pull ups (currently weight assisted), 50 unweighted squats as fast as I can do them, 50 push ups (currently from my knees), 3 different planking/core exercises (holding a pose for 90 seconds). I do this routine twice. This has lead to a major jump in muscle building and strength.

Tuesday - Either swimming, biking, walking or rowing. I go at a medium pace for a long distance. Nothing that's going to wear me out.

Wednesday - Day off

Thursday - Repeat the heavy lifting routine and try to increase my reps or difficulty.

Friday - Slow moving workout

Saturday - Sprinting - 400 meter warm up, 6 x 50 at half speed, 6 x 50 at full speed.

Sunday - Day off

Prior to this routine I was doing the old school cardio and weight interval training. Once I made the switch about 6 weeks ago everything changed. Weight started falling off faster and muscle started building more quickly.

I like to keep my body guessing a bit. The 100 degree weather has kept me off the bike, but I enjoyed mixing that in as well. I do forearm and side planks as part of my core workout, hate those puppies, lol. I'm constantly tweaking my routine to get the most out of. I sneak in 40 regular pushups as part of my core routine as it really stretches out my chest after the lifting the day before. I do know that when I switched from running on the elliptical machine in the pyramid workout to HIIT I dropped weight really fast.

I'm talking to myself on that one as well. Reading through stories, though, I just noticed that everyone was listing reasons for not being able to do things. To me, that's a little discouraging.

I had one person drop because it was just too many people they didn't know in there, and I never really thought of that. Would we prefer a CP inclusive Facebook page? Because we can make that happen. Give me some input guys and gals. I figure the more the merrier myself, because I know first hand people join, then forget about it a couple of weeks in.

A lot of girls who look awesome in their profile pics saying they need to lose 30 lbs or whatever. And the guy saying "Do this and you can eat whatever you want!" I just need to remember that I'm not there to criticize people's methods or needs. Only to encourage.

Dinner - Are off the hot bar at the store - blackened chicken thighs, balsamic beats and peas.

The workout was heavy lifting and thank god today is a workout day off.

I've gotten away from keeping a food journal. It's not something I want to lean on for the rest of my life, so I'm seeing how well I can do without it.

Derby practice kicks my ass sometimes. Last night wasn't too bad, though. However, they don't turn the air on during practices, so I can usually feel beads of sweat rolling down my back before I even get all of my gear on! Needless to say, I'm usually a bucket of sweat by the time I leave.

It's not really raining right now like I thought it was supposed to. More of a mist. If softball does end up getting cancelled tonight, though, I'm going to go skating instead.

I like to keep my body guessing a bit. The 100 degree weather has kept me off the bike, but I enjoyed mixing that in as well. I do forearm and side planks as part of my core workout, hate those puppies, lol. I'm constantly tweaking my routine to get the most out of. I sneak in 40 regular pushups as part of my core routine as it really stretches out my chest after the lifting the day before. I do know that when I switched from running on the elliptical machine in the pyramid workout to HIIT I dropped weight really fast.I also hate planking. I have seen the results so I'm continuing to do it but I'll continue bitching.

I also hate ellipticals. There's something about that motion that f's with my feat and my hips. If my back or knees feel out of whack a run seems to put everything back where it belongs. The elliptical does the opposite.

The mustard I get has 5 calories per tablespoon, but I never put a tablespoon of mustard on anything, so I don't generally count it. If you're not doing the low carb thing, the flour tortilla is a good choice. Might buy some ham or turkey instead of bologna if you can afford it. But it doesn't sound bad. Almost like having bologna and mustard on wheat bread, only the tortilla will have less calories. Good job!

Corn tortillas are about half the calories and a quarter of the carbs from their flour counterparts. The problem is that they suck to eat cold. However, if you can heat them up briefly on a stovetop or oven, they're awesome. My wife and I only eat corn tortillas these days. That being said, I used to carry a wrap to lunch with me at work, and a corn tortilla wouldn't really work well for that as it would be hard and chewy.

If you're going low-carb, try creating your own shell out of shredded cheese. Take shredded chedder (or whatever) and spread it around a paper plate. Microwave for about a minute. While it's still warm you can fold it over in half, or use it as a chip, or a crunchy accent in any other low carb meal.

Really tryin to push right now. I'm low as fuck. This really is a shitty feeling. I hope it passes quickly. Didn't get out and exercise this morning, but my bodybugg has me pinned to burn up right around 4000 calories today so the walking around at work added up to something at least. Diet is mostly on point. Carbs aren't at 20 or less, but they are usually around 25-26. It's my coffee that's doing it. Veggies is where I'm getting the lion's share of them from though.

I have also been eating too much. 1600-1800 calories a day instead of the 1000-1200 I'm trying to stick too. I need to ramp it up and start doing more than this brisk walk that I have going on. I think it's elliptical machine time, and I'll be curious to see how quickly I adapt to it. I'm coming out of the gate with resistance this time, so it will be tough regardless.

I wasn't in on this at the start. But I'm a fat dude. 5' 11" about 250 lbs. I eat shitty food, but not much of it. It's usually one meal a day for me. (just before bed) But... I drink a shit load of crappy beer... nightly. That's where the majority of my calories come from.

I think I've got gout. I've got this terrible pain right at the joint where my big toe meets my foot, and it's the second time. Last time, I thought I had a bone bruise, because I had recently (drunkenly) stubbed my toe running up the stairs.

Now that I have that same pain again, and nothing happened... I'm pretty sure that's what it is. It's difficult to walk, and it just popped up in the middle of the day. Anyone have any experience with it?

Jesus. How long does this last? I ****ing hate feeling all lethargic every day. I haven't exercised in 3 days. Today I got called into work, and got a huge promotion so that was well worth it. I WILL get out in the morning and sweat, but I'm really looking forward to this shit going away. I'm trying to treat it like detox, but detox shouldn't take forever...

Depends on how big you are and how much you went off the deep end. Took me about a week.

It all depends on how far you have to go to change your life to keep it off. I only had to it for a few weeks before I didn't need to do it. At this point only a few times a year usually around the holidays the homemade stuff is hard to pass up.

While I was where you are at stage I avoided bread, pasta, pizza like the plague now only once in while do I eat it. Like it has been said before this is a life style change.

so, not trying to be a huge dick or anything, but i was out on the town with my 5 y.o. this morning. and he was being relatively good (for a 5 y.o.).
and he asks "daddy, can we go to the donut store?"
as i pondered for a minute, i said sure, why not.

well, after my 2nd apple fritter, i think i may have died and gone to heaven (or haven, i don't know what the kids are calling it now).
point being: enjoy the little things once in awhile. don't over-indulge. and treat yourself to something special, every once in awhile.

First 5k done and in the books! My goal was to finish in under 32 minutes. Crossed the finish line at 29:50, no walking, didn't even think about it for a second. Every mile was faster than the previous one.

Then I went over to the Heartland Harvest Garden and tried some of the hot peppers; whoa. I tried the Chinese Ornamentals, Black Pearls, Black Hungarians, but I stopped short of the Thai Dragons, Habaneros and Ghost Chilis.

So, I discovered today that I have full access to all the amenities to our resorts here in town. I went and got on the elliptical for the first time in over a year and banged out a solid assed half hour on that mofo. Didn't burn any extra calories than I do from walking, which is retarded, but the fitness is increasing so I can burn more later. :fire:

I'm pretty excited. Take a nice 2.5 mile walk in the morning, then go bang out a half an hour or more on the elliptical after work, and some interval running on the treadmill afterward. I WILL BE A BEAST AGAIN!

I woke up and was groggy for about 10 minutes, but I've been bouncing around all day and feeling like a million bucks. I absolutely loathe working out in the afternoon, but I loved it today. I've read about it, heard about it from you guys, but it's really incredible how much it changed almost over night. I haven't had this kind of energy in years. Maybe ever. Life's good. And I'm going to peel off some serious weight if this continues. How long did this last for you guys before you leveled out? I'm hoping 3 months, lol.

I don't want to post in this thing all by myself. I ordered pizza last night and got shit faced. Ate the toppings off the crust. Didn't eat after I got drunk, and was still under 2000 calories for the day after downing 10 oz. of Jim Beam. Felt pretty good considering it was a full on cheat day.

This is really a great diet. I just don't miss potatoes, and pasta like I thought I would. Been thinking about pizza for a few days and was completely good with eating the toppings and a little sauce with it. No clue what I weigh, don't care. Clothes fitting better, and I'm putting on clothes I had outgrown just a little over 2 weeks after starting up. I know it's going well. I may jump on a scale today just to make sure I'm on point. I dunno. It really hasn't mattered to me yet. I've got a long assed ways to go...

Anyway, I'll throw a post in every once in a while, but I'm not going to make this a blog like I did the last time. I'll just start a blog if I want to do that.

I will also say that while I haven't quit drinking, I have slowed way the fuck down. 1 night a week only. I've also started exercising a little more consistently.

Yo Flop, I keep seeing you talk about 3 months. Don't put a hard or soft cap on your timeframe or goal weight. I did that and then realized that the time and weight I had set for myself weren't what I actually wanted to do. Just roll with it until you're ready to finish. Personally, I think you should be on Keto for longer than 3 months, but its obviously up to you.

Originally I set my goals at 6 months / 220 lbs and I realized that 220 was still pretty overweight. Also, I like Keto too much to change diets.

Yeah, my wife is wanting to do it longer than 3 months. And honestly, I see myself doing this indefinitely as of now. I like it. I don't miss the foods I used too think I would, and after ordering a pizza last night and being completely happy with peeling the cheese and toppings off of it, there is no reason to change.

Pretty fucking awesome. When I did a strict calories in vs. calories out diet, I found myself feeling deprived frequently. I sucked it up and dealt with it, but I felt that way nonetheless. With Keto, I miss nothing but pizza. So I have pizza. Without the crust. I don't miss bread, pasta, rice, or potatoes. Potatoes was a shocker. I figured I'd miss the hell out of some mashed taters. Nope. Not at all. No deprivation, no hunger, no nothing. I'm good. I eat what I want, I naturally stay in that 60/35/5 range, and I'm happy.

I'm not exercising enough. I need to get that in. Really need to get that in. But I've lost over 20lbs. Oh, and I even stay away from carbs when I'm drinking. Helps we don't have many in the house, but my mind is straight with it. Question. I'm hearing that low carb diets fuck you up when your exercising.

There is some truth to that. Exercise is fueled by glycogen, which is basically a glucose polymer stored in your muscles. When carbs are consistently kept low, glycogen levels are decreased (hence why that first week or two, you lose a lot of water weight).

You will not be able to sustain intense levels of exercise for lengthy periods. As long as the bulk of your calories comes from fat, you shouldn't break down muscle for energy. It's just really hard to recover and almost impossible to build quality NEW muscle in the absence of insulin. I know sugar gets a bad rep, but when timed correctly it is awesome. One of the most anabolic hormones your body produces.

If you start smelling like ammonia when your working out/sweating.. its a sign of muscle tissue being broken down for glucose (energy).

I just started sprint-8. It's a really quick workout three times a week for 20 minutes, but it's intense as all hell. 30 seconds of balls-to-the-wall sprints followed by 90 seconds of jogging repeated 8 times. Couple minutes of jogging before and after for warm up and cool down, and that's it.

I run about 3-4 miles 3-4 times a week, do boxing/light mma training twice a week and have just started this. I'm a shade under 170 pounds and in pretty good shape, but this kicks my ass in a completely different way.

Is there a website on it? Does it get progressively harder with longer sprint times and shorter jog times?

No need for a website but there are plenty. There is no progression. You just run harder/faster as you improve, but the splits stay the same. You might not be able to go eight rounds at first depending on what kind of shape you're in, so it's okay to start at four or five and work your way up. I was able to go all eight my first time, but the eighth one about killed me. I wouldn't have been able to go nine.

There's nothing wrong with that time. A friend of mine that is a serious runner AND a doctor has always said this, "It doesn't matter whether you're running, slow jogging, or walking, the important thing is that you're moving."

That really inspired me. Even if you're only walking a mile per day, you're still moving.

Just ran my first 5k about a month ago and actually came in at 29:58. I'm 5'8" and 195. Started running a couple months ago. My original goal was to walk/run 50 miles per month. The last two months have been 70+.

Day 2 of Low Carb.....I'm damn sure I didn't go over 20 carbs. The good thing is that I really haven't been hungry....at all. So....a couple of questions for everyone who's doing it.

1. When you count carbs.....are you counting total carbs or total carbs minus the fiber (like in Atkins)? Just wondering...

2. I haven't hit a fog yet or anything like that....but what I have hit is the fucking bathroom. In the last two days....I think I've shit like 5 times. That normal?

And lastly....anyone can offer advice on this one. I've been thinking....and I think I'm going to roll with the low carb...plus intermittent fasting. Say for instance I stop eating at 7PM. I normally don't eat lunch till around 12-1 PM anyways....and I'm not a huge fan of breakfast (and I don't have the time honestly). So that would give me a 17-18 hour fast each day. Does anyone see any problems?

Day 2 of Low Carb.....I'm damn sure I didn't go over 20 carbs. The good thing is that I really haven't been hungry....at all. So....a couple of questions for everyone who's doing it.

1. When you count carbs.....are you counting total carbs or total carbs minus the fiber (like in Atkins)? Just wondering...

2. I haven't hit a fog yet or anything like that....but what I have hit is the fucking bathroom. In the last two days....I think I've shit like 5 times. That normal?

And lastly....anyone can offer advice on this one. I've been thinking....and I think I'm going to roll with the low carb...plus intermittent fasting. Say for instance I stop eating at 7PM. I normally don't eat lunch till around 12-1 PM anyways....and I'm not a huge fan of breakfast (and I don't have the time honestly). So that would give me a 17-18 hour fast each day. Does anyone see any problems?

1. Our text went over that, but yes, subtract carbs.

2. You may not hit a fog. Then again you probably will. When I did, it wasn't as bad as most people's. To me it felt like I was perma-stoned for like 24 hours. As far as the bathroom, your body is adjusting. Soon you will notice you aren't going to the bathroom as often. Make sure you drink at least 2L of water (4L is preferable) a day, and eat at least one serving of green veggies a day to stay regular.

As far as Intermittent Fasting goes, it's a widely controversial topic. I say go for it and see how you like it.

Also, since my first goal has passed (Sept 23 wedding where I was a groomsman), my new goal is to bang a hottie from the gym. Pretty shallow, but screw it, I want them, and the goal is to make them want me. :)

I just started sprint-8. It's a really quick workout three times a week for 20 minutes, but it's intense as all hell. 30 seconds of balls-to-the-wall sprints followed by 90 seconds of jogging repeated 8 times. Couple minutes of jogging before and after for warm up and cool down, and that's it.

I run about 3-4 miles 3-4 times a week, do boxing/light mma training twice a week and have just started this. I'm a shade under 170 pounds and in pretty good shape, but this kicks my ass in a completely different way.

My wife and I both did Sprint 8 for years. It's a good, quick sprint program. Fun to see your progress as your max speed and "recovery" speeds climb. I think I was recovering at like 7.5 or 8 by the time I finished doing it and sprinting at like 14 or 15? I can't remember, though. That was the last running program I ever did (though I've been considering getting back on a sprinting program).

And yeah, basically a quick HIIT program for the treadmill.

So far haven't been doing bad on the low carb/intermittent fasting change. I stop eating at 8-9 PM.....and I don't eat lunch until 1 PM the next day. 15-16 hours of fasting every day and I'm keeping my carbs under 25 during my eating window. So far in close to two weeks....I'm down 10 lbs. And that's with NO exercising....because I can't get my fat ass to have any motivation to work out. Starting to piss myself off.

You should probably stay under 20g of net carbs per day.

I found out that when there are major hotties at the gym, I actually want to go there.

Gonna hit up the gym today for some active recovery.
