I'm going to be an attention whore on this. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a morbidly obese individual. I grew up overweight. Like, as long as I can remember. In the beginning of 2008 a weight loss thread started. I decided for the first time in my life I was going to go see a doctor and try and take off some weight. I was 450lbs.

I learned how incredibly ignorant I was to health, fitness, and food. Over the course of a year and a half or so, I lost 185lbs. I went from someone who had never been able to run a mile in his life, to someone who ran 30-40 miles a week. I have a framed picture of myself completing my first 5k, and it was one of the proudest moments in my life.

In August of 2010 my wife and I decided to move to Branson, MO from Seattle, WA. I've lived here before, and wanted to come back. I've never really drank in my life because I come from a long line of alcoholics. I chose a different poison, and always smoked pot. (Yeah, lost 185lbs with the fucking munchies every day. Go me!)

Needless to say, I started drinking when I got down here because the pot was horrible, and eventually stopped running. When I stopped running, I started gaining weight. Today, 2 years later, I weigh approximately 380lbs. I say approximately because frankly, I would have to find a freight scale to weigh myself.

Today is the day it all begins again. I thought long and hard about putting myself out there on this board, because it has changed so much since I did this the first time. But it was such a great release for me, and an insane source of positive encouragement, and valuable information that I decided to do it.

I also know that all that weight I lost inspired a few others on this board to do it as well. My understanding is that they have all kept that weight off. I'm hoping to replicate those achievements with some current fatties out there. Let's band together! Let's learn, and fight, and be who we want to be, rather than who we are right now.

I'm going to post before and after pictures in the next post. My before and after is a little different though. I'm going to post pictures of me at 265, and one of me today. I look forward to posting my after-after picture at the end of the year. I am going to lose 100lbs+ before this year is over. My goal, is to weigh 250lbs by January 1st. That would be the same weight I was at in the 8th grade. Public accountability is a big part of why I was so successful before I think. The idea of putting this up and being the same or worse by year's end is disgusting. I believe it will help me. I will be bumping this thread perhaps on a daily basis. It worked the last time.

Who's with me? Who is ready to put in the blood, sweat, and tears necessary to change your life forever? If I'm alone, I'm alone. But I hope some of you will join me in the battle of the bulge. We'll call it "Custard's last stand"! And to anyone who wants to talk shit to me, about me, or whatever, bring it on. It fuels me.

GO!!!

I won't be successful unless I drastically reduce my alcohol consumption. I'm not saying I'm going to quit, but I'm definitely going to detox for the rest of the year. It's necessary for my mind, as much as my body.

My friend, we lose weight in the kitchen until we gain fitness in the gym. If you want help, and can avoid eating the foods you love in exchange for good tasting food that will take fat off of you, let me know. I will help you. I normally don't advise taking diet advice from a 380lb man, but I do know a thing or two when it comes to weight loss through diet only.

I found the opposite to be true, I started hitting the bike pretty hard this spring, and I lost 10 lbs within the first few weeks. Been a while since I've been on a scale but I don't think I've lost much since then.

When I did my 40-lb. loss back in '09 during the TinyEvel fitness contest, I did some calculations and determined that 80 percent of the loss was due to eating better and 20 percent was due to exercise. Both are good, but diet is the real driver.

I'm in. I've yo-yo'd over the years. This year, I started off at 259 lbs. At the end of June, I weighed 219.6 lbs. No fad diets. I simply started eating healthier and watching my portions. I also took up jogging. In the last 6 weeks, I have been lax in eating healthy, started drinking SOME soda along with less water, but I have remained jogging. To no surprise, I've gained weight. Although, to my surprise, it was only 1.6 lbs. As of Monday, I start the remainder of the year off at 221.2 lbs. I've recently started doing the roller derby gig, and I have practice four hours per week. Still playing softball and still jogging. The exercise hasn't been a problem. Drinking my water and making healthier food choices once again will be my main focus again. I want to lose 50 lbs.

I went from 210 to a brief low of 169 in 2009. I'd classify it as a success because three years later I'm at 185, but I'd really like to be back down around 172 again. I look a lot better at that weight, because the additional 13 pounds goes straight to my stomach.

If you decide you want more info on Keto, call me. I can talk pretty much all day. I'm sure GoChiefs can give you a lot of pointers too.

Also a tip for everyone.

Diet isn't supposed to be defined as "the food you eat when you want to lose weight." It should be defined as "the food you eat."

The point is that you need to make a lifestyle change, not just go on a "diet."

Or stop keto?

Or stop Nutrisystem/Medifast?

Or stop fasting?

How do you plan to teach yourself healthy eating habits?

I will say that fasting is my eating "habit" now. That's just pretty much the way I eat for the last 3 years or so, and I don't think I'll ever go back to 3 square meals a day, every day.

I can appreciate that for sure. I think as far as a lifestyle change that is a good one.

I've tried nearly every "diet" out there. They all work, as long as you stick to them.

Whats frustrating to me is that I like a wide variety of foods and drinks, and I don't like to deny myself those simple pleasures.

I haven't shared this with anyone but I'm going to share it with Floptits now in the hopes that it might help him.

Last year I got incredibly depressed towards the end of summer. I put on about 35 pounds between then and the end of the year and I was dangerously close to turning back into a fatass. I stopped working out and had zero discipline with my diet. My clothes were getting very, very uncomfortable.

I got incredibly motivated by a hot girl and lost it all and fucked her, and haven't regressed since in the last 6 months and am leaner than ever.

So just know that we once-fat-turned-skinny-almost-got-fat-again-but-committed-to-staying-skinny-once-and-for-all people have issues sometimes, too.

EACH MAN HIDES A SECRET PAIN.

Share my pain, and gain strength from the sharing.

Good luck Flopnuts. It's hard to stick with but keep trying. I'm down right at 30 lbs this year, smaller portions and working out 2-3 times a week.
I have been eating quite a bit of Progresso soup, add crackers and it's like 300-400 calories a meal plus it's cheap when you price match or pick it up at Sams. Figure a meal for a buck or 1.25 and your doing well!!

If you decide you want more info on Keto, call me. I can talk pretty much all day. I'm sure GoChiefs can give you a lot of pointers too.

Also a tip for everyone.

Diet isn't supposed to be defined as "the food you eat when you want to lose weight." It should be defined as "the food you eat."

The point is that you need to make a lifestyle change, not just go on a "diet."

This is the only way to keep it off.

I've said "I'm in," and not followed through on several of these threads, so I won't embarrass myself further by doing so. I'm back coaching football after two years off, and I will never go into another season with as much weight as I'm carrying. It's just too damn hard on my body (plus, I'll be on espn tomorrow!).
I will say, though, good luck Flop. You're good people and I'm rooting for you.

I'm a food whore. I absolutely love food. I'm the guy who would make moms blush when I went to a friend's house because I was asking for seconds and thirds (thank god my metabolism is high as hell, which is probably one reason I should stay out of these threads... because I haven't ever had to deal with the shit that other people do as far as weight loss). When I travel, I travel to eat, researching the restaurants I'll eat at for months in advance. I spend an average of 1-2 hours in the kitchen an evening cooking. In short: I'm a foodie.

Fasting, though, has allowed me to just ignore all the shit meals and calories I was taking in out of habit and really focus on enjoying and doing the food right during my eating periods. It also has allowed me the ability to splurge on occasion when traveling or during holidays with the confidence that I can get the pounds off again if necessary.

But yeah, I freaking love to eat. But I'm also an all or nothing guy. If I get started eating something, then it's really hard for me to stop until it's all gone. IF I start in on chocolate chip cookies or cake or something that someone brings to work, then I'll probably have multiple servings, not one. It's much easier for me to never start eating the food than to stop once I do eat it.

My wife, on the other hand, does small snacking portions (handfuls of almonds, piece of fruit, slice of cheese, etc...) all day long with no problem.

Exactly. I think it's because I grew up with two older brothers, and we would all be fighting for every last scrap of food at the table (it was just about competition, not about actually not having enough food to eat). My parents also both grew up poor, so they made us feel guilty for not cleaning our plates. As such, I end up cleaning every plate at the table when I go out to eat with my wife and kids. I've actually started ordering less food for myself these days because I know I'll end up eating everyone else's scraps. It's weird.

So that's why fasting works for me. It suits the way I eat. For others it might not work as well (like my wife).

The whole "loving food" thing has always interested me. I used to work with a guy whose entire day was about what he was going to eat. I used to drive him nuts because while I like food (and love some), it's really just something that my body requires. He used to say, "You know what, Donger!? You eat to live. I live to eat." I actually enjoy the process of making a meal a lot more than eating it.

I used to be a skinny kid up until I was about 8 years old. My Dad got orders to Okinawa and left 3 months before my Mom, my brother and myself to get everything setup. The three of us went to live with my grandparents on their farm. My grandma is the type of person that would make you whatever you want to eat but you had to eat everything on your plate. Apparently my eyes were bigger than my stomach. My Dad said that when we got off the plane....he didn't even recognize me. I had gained that much weight. I've been fighting that battle since then.

Yup, I'm a picky eater and there is a lot of healthy stuff I just won't eat and giving up my favorite foods just seems stupid. If I'm going to have pizza, just have two pieces and eat light that day. I know some people that just use some of the free apps on the web to basically do it for free.

The original low carb diet was based on the premise of Ketosis.

The only difference now is that instead of being a radical idea people thought might be risky (high meat diet = cholesterol and heart disease) there's a decade of science behind it and it has a cool new name based on the same 10 year old science...

I'm going to be an attention whore on this. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a morbidly obese individual. I grew up overweight. Like, as long as I can remember. In the beginning of 2008 a weight loss thread started. I decided for the first time in my life I was going to go see a doctor and try and take off some weight. I was 450lbs.

I learned how incredibly ignorant I was to health, fitness, and food. Over the course of a year and a half or so, I lost 185lbs. I went from someone who had never been able to run a mile in his life, to someone who ran 30-40 miles a week. I have a framed picture of myself completing my first 5k, and it was one of the proudest moments in my life.

In August of 2010 my wife and I decided to move to Branson, MO from Seattle, WA. I've lived here before, and wanted to come back. I've never really drank in my life because I come from a long line of alcoholics. I chose a different poison, and always smoked pot. (Yeah, lost 185lbs with the ****ing munchies every day. Go me!)

Needless to say, I started drinking when I got down here because the pot was horrible, and eventually stopped running. When I stopped running, I started gaining weight. Today, 2 years later, I weigh approximately 380lbs. I say approximately because frankly, I would have to find a freight scale to weigh myself.

Today is the day it all begins again. I thought long and hard about putting myself out there on this board, because it has changed so much since I did this the first time. But it was such a great release for me, and an insane source of positive encouragement, and valuable information that I decided to do it.

I also know that all that weight I lost inspired a few others on this board to do it as well. My understanding is that they have all kept that weight off. I'm hoping to replicate those achievements with some current fatties out there. Let's band together! Let's learn, and fight, and be who we want to be, rather than who we are right now.

I'm going to post before and after pictures in the next post. My before and after is a little different though. I'm going to post pictures of me at 265, and one of me today. I look forward to posting my after-after picture at the end of the year. I am going to lose 100lbs+ before this year is over. My goal, is to weigh 250lbs by January 1st. That would be the same weight I was at in the 8th grade. Public accountability is a big part of why I was so successful before I think. The idea of putting this up and being the same or worse by year's end is disgusting. I believe it will help me. I will be bumping this thread perhaps on a daily basis. It worked the last time.

Who's with me? Who is ready to put in the blood, sweat, and tears necessary to change your life forever? If I'm alone, I'm alone. But I hope some of you will join me in the battle of the bulge. We'll call it "Custard's last stand"! And to anyone who wants to talk shit to me, about me, or whatever, bring it on. It fuels me.

GO!!!

There isn't a lot to talk about, it is mostly calorie counting. WW is just an easier way to keep track.

Yeah, it's pretty easy if you aren't sure about something.

Gotta have a food scale though, IMO.

If anyone wants to talk about healthy eating, portion control, and exercise, I'm all ears. :)

Otherwise, I'll just click to check the status of everyone's keto from time to time.

Exercise sucks, so I make it fun. I play soccer twice a week for 2-3 hours at a time at Lake Country. That's my exercise. Beats the lame gym.

Mr. Flopnuts

Then what happens after you stop juicing?

Or stop keto?

Or stop Nutrisystem/Medifast?

Or stop fasting?

How do you plan to teach yourself healthy eating habits?

It's really just discipline. I know what to do. It's applying it every day, and remembering that a mistake doesn't have to be compounded into this. Obviously there was some depression and things going on, but that's just not a good enough excuse. It is what it is.

If you decide you want more info on Keto, call me. I can talk pretty much all day. I'm sure GoChiefs can give you a lot of pointers too.

Also a tip for everyone.

Diet isn't supposed to be defined as "the food you eat when you want to lose weight." It should be defined as "the food you eat."

The point is that you need to make a lifestyle change, not just go on a "diet."

I don't have any idea what to eat to remain in keto. I guess it's probably better than juicing, I just fucking love potatoes and pasta. But if I'm juicing I don't get those things, I may as well dig in on some sausage and eggs. :D

I'm a food whore. I absolutely love food. I'm the guy who would make moms blush when I went to a friend's house because I was asking for seconds and thirds (thank god my metabolism is high as hell, which is probably one reason I should stay out of these threads... because I haven't ever had to deal with the shit that other people do as far as weight loss). When I travel, I travel to eat, researching the restaurants I'll eat at for months in advance. I spend an average of 1-2 hours in the kitchen an evening cooking. In short: I'm a foodie.

Fasting, though, has allowed me to just ignore all the shit meals and calories I was taking in out of habit and really focus on enjoying and doing the food right during my eating periods. It also has allowed me the ability to splurge on occasion when traveling or during holidays with the confidence that I can get the pounds off again if necessary.

But yeah, I freaking love to eat. But I'm also an all or nothing guy. If I get started eating something, then it's really hard for me to stop until it's all gone. IF I start in on chocolate chip cookies or cake or something that someone brings to work, then I'll probably have multiple servings, not one. It's much easier for me to never start eating the food than to stop once I do eat it.

My wife, on the other hand, does small snacking portions (handfuls of almonds, piece of fruit, slice of cheese, etc...) all day long with no problem.

Will you do me a favor, and explain your fasting regimen? I did VERY well with fasting but I'd like to get an idea of how often you do it, and how long you go. TIA. And please, come into this thread. God bless you for not having to deal with this, but the fact is, you're supportive as fuck, you're very positive to hear from, and fuck, you're Trent Green's BIL. :fire:

A question for you people who have lost a significant amount of weight: Did you have some kind of destruction ceremony of your "fat" clothes, or did you keep them stored away "just in case"?

I gave them to a fat person.

Me too. Donated to my buddy before I moved. Oops. They were a little big on him at the time, and he's filled them up. I still have my size 52 shorts and 6xl shirt that I first weighed in at 450. I'll never get rid of those.

BTW, God bless every one of you fuckers. I mean it. I've been talking about this, and planning this, and putting this off for weeks now. Right this second with this thread, the responses, and people signing up, it's real. And that is already affecting my decisions I made while I was out today. I'm actually getting started right now.

So, for that, I thank you all. I feel blessed to have this many people post in this thread, and sign up for this with me. It's amazing how much of an impact this website has made on my personal, real life.

I've had people on this website help me out in my real life. The last time I did this someone contacted me and sent me a couple of cases of protein shakes for after workouts, and is offering to do it again. I've had people spend hours trying to explain, and help me train to achieve my goals. I've had people offer to get together with me to show me how to do things. Yeah, don't doubt for a second that I'm blessed. This place is pretty fucking special.

I've said "I'm in," and not followed through on several of these threads, so I won't embarrass myself further by doing so. I'm back coaching football after two years off, and I will never go into another season with as much weight as I'm carrying. It's just too damn hard on my body (plus, I'll be on espn tomorrow!).
I will say, though, good luck Flop. You're good people and I'm rooting for you.

I'm going to look into it. I don't know if I want to do it for life. So I don't know if it's good for me, I've heard there is a "golden shot" your first time around. What I do know is the body will shed like a motherfucker for 3 months as it's going into shock, then it will adjust and weight loss becomes a bit more difficult. I want to slay those 3 months in whatever manner is necessary.

My wife is a vegetarian, so pasta was one of our staples. We now have it, maybe, once a week. I made a pretty amazing pasta substitute this week, though. Cooked up some gigantes beans (they're huge and potato esque), did a bunch of tomatoes, garlic, and basil to finish. It was close to eating gnocchi. Pretty awesome.

I know they're not much better, probably, from a keto standpoint, but we eat the hell out of sweet potatoes still. We don't touch "regular" potatoes except for the occasional chip or fry, though.

In... started the year at my heaviest point ever (317) and as of today am down to 282. Still a gigantic fat ass but plugging away at it. I've asked my work to extend my lunch break by a half an hour so that I can get to the gym (yes, we have a gym and showers at my work) between work sessions. Hopefully they can make the schedule work for them.

As for the normal weight loss stuff... really I am just being careful with what I eat. Trying my best to stay around 1500 calories per day. Doesn't always pan out but pretty damn close. I need to go down by a minimum of another 50lb.

You go man.... Just never lose you! Be healthy, but be happy. I workout 5 days a week because i love it. Now, the treadmill is something that gets 20 minutes, NOT 21! It sucks, and I find it's usually what makes folks quit! For those who love it, good for you! I know when I lift, I lift with my son or alone - I can't stand chit-chat at the gym, but that's just me. For those of you chit-chatters, good for you (just move it to the sauna and get off the weights when you're talking).

What I'm saying is find what you love, and do it a often.

Just never quit!

This is me. Every year I intend to stay lean and mean through the summer, but I get off my routine because I'm not reporting to my regular job (teaching). When I'm at work every day, I can regulate my diet easily. When I'm at home, hanging with the kids, going out on daytrip adventures with them, and such... it's really easy to have 2-3 "splurge" lunches, breakfasts, or brunches in a week. Those things add up pretty quick.

I work out more and am more active in the summer, but I also sit around and eat shit with the kids way more and drink a hell of a lot more beer.

That's what I did and it worked great short term for me. No more eating out, no more alcohol and no more pop. Like I mentioned in the group I was down around 11 pounds or so in about a month or so. I even walked a bit, but not too much.

I appreciate it. This is a different approach that I'm taking that I honestly wouldn't recommend for very many people. I've done this. I've lost 185lbs. I knew exactly what to do to keep losing and live a great, healthy, athletic, lifestyle.

Then I fucked the whole thing up and put 100lbs on. Okay. No. Big. Deal. (bullshit, it sucks) I know what to do when I get there, but I also know that I have 90 days to achieve ridiculous results. From there, it's all like before. So I think I'm going to take my "golden shot".

That's what I did and it worked great short term for me. No more eating out, no more alcohol and no more pop. Like I mentioned in the group I was down around 11 pounds or so in about a month or so. I even walked a bit, but not too much.

That's my plan of attack again.

That's awesome. Exercise is good for the mind, as well as the body. I would suggest giving 30 days of pain to it, and see how you feel about it at the end. If you can make it 30 days, I'd bet money you wouldn't want to quit. It's incredible what it does for the endorphines in your brain, let alone the physical athleticism, and weight loss. Just my 2 cents, bro.

Its taken me over 5 months to lose 50 pounds. But I am not starving myself. Just watching my intake. Luv and Buck are inspirational for me! I took a pic this weekend and realized that I am still a fat fuck, so I am now jogging. 220 or bust.....

I've been watching you on Facebook. Why aren't you in our group? Fuck that, Burt. You're a Flopnuts Fatty now. I'm going to add you to the thread header and put you in the Facebook group.

P.S- You're doing fucking phenomenal! Keep it up!

If anyone wants to track their weight publicly, feel free. I've set it up in the thread header. 1 awesome thing I've got going now is I got a new Bodybugg. I used that little bad boy when I lost my weight the first time and it was awesome for tracking calorie burn, and forcing me to read labels, and measure my food (most of the time) when I was using it.

It's totally outdated, there are better, cheaper products on the market, but I got the one that links with smart phones and a 6 month subscription to the website for $100. That's fuckin smokin! I should get that in a week or so. Really looking forward to it.

I'm going to get off my ass and exercise in the morning. I will be truthful about it. If I don't, I would appreciate tons of ridicule. :)

I'm trying to figure out my plan for attack. I've stopped eating out, and am eating better. I'm even eating less, and no drinking at all. We've been talking on the Facebook page, and I'm kind of leaning toward keto, but I need a lot more info. I want to fucking crush the first 90 days, then I want to transition back into a more normal life long lifestyle. There's no reason I can't lose 100-120lbs or MORE in 3 months.

That said, I need to get off my fat, fucking ass and move if I'm going to make that happen. Help me Buck, make me a Keto master. I DON'T WANT TO JUUUUUUUUUUUUUUIIIICCE!

If you adhere to these rules, in the first 90 days you'll lose probably at least 100 lbs.

1. Strict 65% Fat - 30% Protein - 5% (or less) Carbs (by calorie)

2. Less than 20 g Net Carbs a day (Total Carbs minus Fiber)

3. Start out at 2000 Net Calories a day (Food minus exercise) and within 2 weeks get down to 1500 Net Calories a day.

4. No Sugar, Bread, Potatoes, Pasta, Rice, Fruit, Milk, Soda

If you can do all that, you'll be down 100 in your first 90 days.

seriously, what about diet soda?
last summer, i cut out ALL carbs. i was a nasty little cabletech for that month. then i gradually added around 15-30 total carbs a meal. i was around 235. i went in for knee surgery in late october and was right @ 200.
the surgery kicked my ass (and i sat on said ass, a lot). probably gained back 20. i'm back to 210, with a total goal around 190.

most of my fat is muscle, so you know.

Flopnuts. In in with ya man.

I started a year and half ago and lost 85 lbs. Last month or so, I havent been as strict on my food. Im still working out, too. I havent lost any Lbs in about a month and half, but I thankfully I have not gained any though,

I was at 287 at 5'2 (A short, round mofo!) and now am around 200.

I think I have the maintain part down, but I need to lose about 30 more and muscle up.

I need a kick in the arse and posting here helped me so much, like it did for you, Im back in with you, and good luck sir!!

I appreciate it. This is a different approach that I'm taking that I honestly wouldn't recommend for very many people. I've done this. I've lost 185lbs. I knew exactly what to do to keep losing and live a great, healthy, athletic, lifestyle.

Then I fucked the whole thing up and put 100lbs on. Okay. No. Big. Deal. (bullshit, it sucks) I know what to do when I get there, but I also know that I have 90 days to achieve ridiculous results. From there, it's all like before. So I think I'm going to take my "golden shot".

If you want a lifestyle idea, I can tell you what works for me (keeping in mind that the most overweight I've ever been is maybe 20-25 pounds).

I eat a Kashi granola bar for breakfast and have a couple of walnuts around 10:00. Costco sells huge bags of them for cheap, and they are delicious. I go out for lunch every day just like I always have (and this plus beer is why I pack on the pounds to begin with), but I only eat half of my meal. I then eat the rest of the meal for dinner, and I'm all set. I might have a small snack in the evening, but I try not to get carried away. Even if I do get carried away once in a while, that's nothing compared to eating the equivalent of one large meal total for lunch and dinner instead of two.

The key for me really is portion control. I can eat an enormous amount of food when I let myself go. The more I eat one day, the more I can eat (and want to eat) the next day. If I can just go two days of eating small meals, my stomach shrinks down to a fraction of it's previous size. Then, I can't even fathom eating a full restaurant meal.

So, I found myself wanting to eat bullshit today. I ate a cup of popcorn at work, but that's all I've had outside of 2% milk in my coffee. I busted my ass this morning, and was just sitting here jonesing for a burger from the diner down the street where my BIL works. He was out of smokes and I decided to take him some.

Got my car to the top of the lot, and said fuck this, turned around and parked. Huffed the steps to drop my keys off and grab my mp3 player and walked up there. Branson is hilly as a motherfucker, and I think it's all uphill! In any case, I got up there and gave him his smokes, took a deep breath of that wonderful smelling hamburger meat cooking, and walked out.

I walked another 30 minutes and took the long way home. I'm fucking beat! I'm pretty much carrying Buck on my back everywhere I go. Can't believe I let this happen...Oh well, here we go! Now, what to have for lunch? I'll ponder that until sometime around dinner.

I think I would like to get in on this. Some public accountability might help get me over the hump of perpetually restarting.

I've been maintaining a 30 lb loss for 14 years now but my body seems to love to stay at the current 200 lbs, which is still a little too heavy. My clothes seem to fit best and I feel best around 170 - 175.

Two years ago, I got down to 169 lbs doing zero carb. It worked great for a while but I ended up nuking my thyroid in the process (super cold all of the time, zero energy and started regaining weight even though the diet didn't change). I went back to a mixed diet and ended up gorging on all of the stuff I hadn't gotten to eat in a while. I ended up regaining right back to 200 lbs. :rolleyes:

I have found that I can maintain like a mfer on a mixed diet but can't lose for shit. I am thinking of going back to very low carb to lose but mix in some refeeds and diet breaks to keep the thyroid happy this time.

The problem is getting started. I keep planning it, starting it, then stopping after a couple of days for "one last splurge" which derails me for a couple of weeks before I restart again.

I have a (probably stupid) question about the Facebook group - would posts there show up on my wall?

It doesn't happen to everyone and it seems to be avoided by consuming about 50 g carbs per day.

When you go very low carb (VLC), your body tries to maintain blood sugar levels through the glycogen stored in your liver. Eventually your body switches over to ketones for fuel, reducing the need for glucose. However, not everything in your body can run on ketones, so some glucose is still necessary (about 50 g /day). If you aren't eating carbs that glucose has to come primarily from converting protein to glucose (gluconeogenesis).

Gluconeogenesis isn't very efficient, though, and it takes about 2g of protein for 1g of glucose. If you aren't getting enough protein or exercising too hard (like long distance running or biking) you can end up in a state of permanently depleted liver glycogen, which is a sign of starvation to the body. The body reacts to this by slowing the metabolism (through the thyroid).

Refeeds and diet breaks work because they replenish the liver glycogen, signalling the thyroid that everything is fine and you aren't starving. Also, I think some people are just better at gluconeogenesis and can keep their glycogen topped off.

BTW, if you do LC below 50g/day, you need to increase your protein intake quite a bit to avoid losing muscle while trying to maintain blood sugar levels.

Sorry to hear you had a bit of a relapse flop. Stay with it. You've done it before. You can do it again. Just try to focus on changing your life from now on, and not just hitting a certain point where you'll be satisfied with what you've done. Permanent change, versus a temporary goal. I say that not to lecture, but because that's always the struggle for me. I stop and I start, I take one step forward and two back. Year after year after year...

So what I'm saying is that the january 1st goal is great. But also put some focus on changing you forever. Never settle.

Bit on me without getting too far into it: I'm just about to drop below 200 pounds for the first time since the mid 90s. My diet (meaning my eating habits) still isn't quite what it needs to be, but I've shed 30 pounds since last July 4th, 20 pounds since early February this year, and about 10 pounds since July 4th this year. My weight yesterday morning was 200.4 pounds, and I think by October 1 I should be settled somewhere between 195 and 200. What I really have to work on now is toning my midsection (I'm 6'0 but have a 41" waist - this is where my diet's a problem...) but all-in-all I'm pretty happy with how things are going. I'm in better shape than I've probably been in 20 years. I hurt my knee at the beach in late June, but I've been able to start running again recently. Hope to be able to handle a steady (slow) 2 miles in the next week. And I've been biking my ass off. I'm about to hit 1,500 miles for the year, my pace is generally around or above 15 mph (compared to 13-14 last year). And a couple of days ago I managed 40 miles in just under 2 hours and 45 minutes (I did take a break of about 10 minutes right around 30 miles, so it was closer to 3 hours total time), which was a personal best.

I have a feeling we'll see you here in january telling a similar story. I know you can do it.

Don't you have gluten-allergies too? Could your problems with zero Carb possibly be elated to some inherent issue with that sensitivity?

Maybe. I've always had a hard time getting keto adapted. It takes me a long time to get over the carb flu when going low carb.

However, the studies back up what I said. VLC mimics starvation so it isn't surprising that your body would react to VLC as it would starvation (slowing the metabolism). Fortunately, it doesn't seem to be a permanent adaptation, so refeeds and diet breaks are useful to overcome the problem.

I was very active in the ZC and VLC communities and knew quite a few people, both young and older, that had the same kind of reaction to long term VLC. I also knew a lot of people that seemed to take to it well over the long term, so it seems highly individualistic.

I'm not bashing it. It worked great for me for quick weight loss; I just can't stay on it long term.

I've been on Paleo for a while now and I'm down 45 lbs on the year. My weight is below what it was when I was 19 and my performance exceeds what I was at during my physical peak in the military.

I recommend it to everyone that asks and to family members that don't.

It's lower carb than a standard diet but I personally eat fruit everyday and I eat veggies that are high in carbs. Going extreme low carb seems to f with me.

It's basically the elimination of sugar and grains (rice, wheat, corn...). One of the best books that I can recommend is http://www.amazon.com/Practical-Paleo-Customized-Whole-Foods-Lifestyle/dp/1936608758/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1346190788&sr=8-1&keywords=balanced+bites

The recipes rock and she breaks down the diet in a very basic way. There's a lot of other books that get way more scientific but those seem to scare people away.

It's helped me simplify things. I no longer f around with long distance cardio and I regularly kick my own ass with his sprinting program. My friend who is a marathoner was blown away by basic sprints and we were both sore as a mofo after our first attempt. It's a great workout. I also dig the basic pullup/pushup workouts.

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.
