Also - I pay a lot more attention to the food I eat in general; ie: what's in it, is it covered in cheese, how fatty is it, is it carb heavy in the evening etc etc.
You've grasped the main part now . Incremental changes to your diet are worth their weight in gold . Couple that with a structured exercise programme and you'll be looking for a pair of 32inch jeans before you know it.

When people deprive themselves or make the routine too severe they fail , it's too much of a shock . Ive been around the same weight for 20 years 77-79KG and it's hard work as i have to constantly watch what i eat and i train at least 4 times per week .

I like to booze and eat crap now and again so you just have to make the right choices . Keep at it because the lighter and fitter you get the more incentive it will give you .

You'll be fighting the lasses of with a shitty stick at the Barasti soon

Agreed. Too much too quickly is a waste of time. Got a pal who has quit smoking, stopped boozing, gym every morning, zero fun allowed. It's going to come tumbling down soon, such is.

I've focused on this diet, squash once a week and now I've moved offices; I have been smoking 50% less without really thinking about it.

Bit by bit.

Well done scamp - the hardest part of any change in lifestyle is getting out of your comfort zone.

5:2 is easy to start with. Miss sometimes a meal or 2 for the rest of the week and the weight will carry on dropping. People stop and blame fasting and look for a new diet when they stall. The body quickly learns to adapt hence the stalls.

Im big into fasting - its soo much easier than remembering calories, remember macro levels of protein/carbs/fat.

I now use a random generator on my phone and that tells me how many meals i eat in a day. Thats much more in tune how mankind developed - sometimes you found food and sometimes you didnt. I still try to keep away from all processed food but sod it a couple of double whopper meals is worth it !

How much do you eat that you need an app to tell you how many meals you have eaten?



Or do you have dementia?

That app sounds brutal!

I have found myself eating less in general. Yesterday I was up early to go to RAK to play golf and acquire beverages on the way back. Had lunch at about 3pm. Didn't eat any dinner. So I had one meal, oh and some chocolate orange, but that's alright. I find myself generally being less starving hungry etc but I still never eat breakfast. That'll be the biggest 'lifestyle' / diet change I need to make - to at least start doing that.

I use the app to give a random number ranging from 0 to 4 meals a day. If its 0 means a full day fast, 1 = 1 meal a day etc.

Nothing to do with dementia but more to do with learning to control my apetite (please dont start talking about how if i dont eat 6 meals a day my body will go into starvation mode). It works fine for me - your mileage will vary

What if the app gives a run of, say seven, zeros. That is possible.

The basic problem is too much cake, not enough walkies.

Minimal loss of KGs mate.
Next 3 months I started a running / walking regime on the running machine :
200 meters fast run and 200 meters normal walk. Do that for 40 minutes or 5km, 2 times a week and voila, 2-3 KGs a month easy! Point in trying to make is, I thought that just by sweating a lot I could shed the fat but you also need to get a good cardio workout while sweating to actually get the fat burning.
I dislike Saunas because of the dry heat. Prefer Steam room.

If you didn't lose weight after 30 mins in the Sauna then sit longer and if that doesn't work sit even longer

I have high metabolism so my problem is trying to put on weight. Anyone know if those muscle building powders and shakes are any good in putting on bulk/body mass?

Here's another tip.
Even though I am not trying to lose weight,I found that limejuice / limeade / lemonade really takes away my appetite.

they do work - but I find that they fill me a lot and then stop me wanting real food.

Default Re: Diet

So I'll give some of you an idea of diet day and what it's like; bullshit.

Woke up. Weighed myself, weekend of boozing, eating what I want and I'm back up to 102.3kg

No great dramas because the fluctuation has been on a downward trend still. I'll wake up tomorrow nice and light.

Two big black coffees and one cigarette so far. Normally I'd have had 2+ coffees and 3-4 cigs.

I find the fasting thing interesting and if it works on some people then fair play . It's not sustainable or long term though . People need to eat 'clean' full stop , it's the only long term solution for weight management and good health .

If you eat clean the majority of your time and train hard and well you will change your body shape very very quickly .

It's a very simple formula and i still don't get why people complicate it . Eating well coupled with resistance and cardio is the best way to go long term .
