Well, eggs are a pretty good start. What do you NOT like?

Mostly things like cous-cous, nuts, most kinds of veg, lentils. Mostly veggies and things. Its not like all I do is eat meat and cheese all day but my foods mostly just the same few things over and over.

Tastes change over time if you make an effort at it.

Celery, no calories ;8
Brussel sprouts will put you off food as well.


Walking helps. I walk to school when I need to go there... just because I don't like suffocating in public transport with people who couldn't take that short walk from Flinders Street to the Arts Centre :mad:
But seriously I've noticed loss in weight just by walking 40 minutes when I need to, if I wasn't too lazy to stop there I just might be healthy ;9

I'm starting to replace all the soda in my diet with water. It's already showing some fairly good results.

Brussels Sprouts are amazing. If you don't like them, you're cooking them wrong!

I have trouble keeping excess fat off :/.

My problem isn't an inability to lose it. Between resistance training and supplements I can lose weight easily (I hate soda now). The problem is resisting my grandparent's cooking -_-. I live with them so...yeah. Anytime I don't eat a lumberjack's meal they think I'm turning anorexic :/ lol.

so question for you ladies and gents. What is the best time to workout?  If there is one.   I usually work out at night, after dinner. So usually around 7 or 8 pm.  I either go to the gym where I usually get in about an hour and 10 minutes (30 min treadmill + 5 min cool down, then 30 min stationary bike or eliptical + 5 min cool down).  Sometimes I'll use the weight lifting machines, but that is rare.   Right now I'm really focused on loosing. I have a lot to lose ;9

If I don't go to the gym, I do 50 minutes of dancing. I have a new heart rate monitor I got for Christmas, and honestly the dancing gets my heart rate up better than the gym.  My average heart rate when dancing is 162 (which is right in the middle of my target range). 

My only issue is this: once I work out I get HUNGRY.  No matter how full I was before I worked out, about an hour afterwards I am so hungry >_<  And I don't want to eat that late, so I end up snacking, and then I think "well don't snack, just eat something real"  So I eat a little bit.  It's not like I'm eating a massive amount of food at these times, but still that little bit puts me over my caloric intake for the day (set at 1400 calories per day)  and I don't like eating at 9 or 10 at night since I try to go to bed around 11:30 or so now.  I'm thinking if I moved my workout up to the middle of the day.. maybe when logan is down for his nap, that might help. I  could work out and then eat a little something and I'd have the rest of the day to work it off.

There are two problems with this: 1) I can't go to the gym any earlier. I babysit my nephews and so I go when they go home.   2) I'll still be over on calories.   

Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.

Traditionally, morning is the best time, but some people believe that the afternoon is the best time.

Maybe I'll try doing the dance workout while logan is asleep then. what about the hunger thing? Is that normal? Any tips for controlling it?

You're supposed to eat after you workout. Google "what to eat after a workout" and you'll find some good info. Anything high in protein is great. Turkey, tuna, even peanut butter, but don't go crazy with it. You need to replace the calories that you just burned. I know it sounds counter-productive, but its not. The human body is weird.

ouch!  >_<   Sir, you need to be careful!   I hope you heal soon, pulled muscles hurt ;9



I did nothing yesterday and expect to follow that trend today. On the up side I'm barely eating so it shouldn't matter too much. I hate going to see a doctor but my throat is sore and super freaking itchy and it isn't getting better. I may have to suck it up and go see one soon though >_<

For going the distance for a balanced breakfast.Project of the Month winner for June 2009For being a noted contributor to the RMRK Wiki2013 Best WriterSilver Writing ReviewerSecret Santa 2013 Participant
I was told that your best performance is after your afternoon glucose crash. As far as diet goes, it depends on what you want to do. For gaining weight, like muscle mass, go with lots of calories- good calories, like in fruit and simple starches. Your protien intake doesn't need to be increased, most likely, just reshuffled to 25% just before your lifts, 25% afterward, and the rest as you go. BASICS: Eat enough. Eat meat, veggies, fruit, some starch and no sugar. Water is your friend, as are carbs to jump-start your workout. Gaining mass is easier in the fall and winter.

For weight loss, you start early in the morning. Lots of cardio, MUCH water will help keep you hydrated AND feeling full. Fiber intake should increase, as important to weight loss as protien is to weight gain. The goal here is to excercise untill you sweat or 20 minutes, whichever comes last. Weight loss is easiest in the spring and summer. So I was told.

It worked for me. At the beginning of 2011 I was 260 lbs with 33% body fat. Now I'm 215 lbs with 23% body fat, and I can lift 180 lbs over my head from a sitting position.

Yes, FITNESS! I'll share my progress, and encourage others to do the same! :)

I was actually planning to post here soon, since I've been working on some weight loss look better goals. This time of the year doesn't particularly help, since I have an incurable sweet tooth. I'm probably not going at it the best way, but I've managed to slim down a bit, appearance-wise (unless either Malson or myself is lying to me :mad:).

Bear with me. I'm trying. ;_;

For exercise - So far, I've been doing Pilates (twice as much as I usually do). I have a specific work out kit that has been my on-and-off go-to for years, except for the times when I'm stupid enough to stop doing them. They're great at shaping and muscle-building, but my weight number hasn't exactly changed (muscle weights more than fat and all that). So, I've still got a tummy bulge to eradicate. I can feel muscle underneath all my tummy fluff, so there's a start. B)

Another thing I'm trying is (gasp) monitoring the calories I get from drinking (soda). All in all, my sweet tea and soda consumption is scarce, compared to what it used to be. :) I've mostly cut them out. It was easier than I thought, especially since I got into a citrus green tea craze and started to drink that instead. It seems a lot healthier, but I'm sure it has its downsides, as well. I can't stop looking at all those vitamins on the label, mang.

Food is my weakness and ally. I've tried to cut back on my calories before and ended up destroying my energy. It's really hard to measure what I need when I don't exactly fit the average female's criteria for build and height, so I can't quite diet like a normal female. I usually have more luck with exercise, though I'm totally up for a few food substitutions.

I'm going to try out some of the cardio advice I've seen around here. If anyone else has some simple fat-burning exercise/etc ideas to add to the pot, I'm all ears!
