Re: GET IN SHAPE THREAD: Weight-loss, Dieters, and Exercise-enthusiast

omg. I just can't
I had to work yesterday from 10AM-6PM, and when i got home yesterdayevening i was hungry. So i had a huge salad (500g) and yogurt/quark (800g), so 1.3 kg in total.
When i woke up this morning, i weighed myself and my weight was still the same as yesterdaymorning.
I didn't expect to have gained 1.3kg obviously, but i didn't even gain 100g

Is this normal?

Re: GET IN SHAPE THREAD: Weight-loss, Dieters, and Exercise-enthusiast

The path to weight loss and fitness gains is relatively easy. ...it's the discipline to stay on the path that's hard.

You need three tools:

1) a cardio plan
2) a heart rate monitor
3) a caloric intake log

Once you figure out your own personal metabolic rate and how many calories you need per day to maintain, gain or lose weight, then it's a matter of math.

For me, the tools I use recently are "Ride Your way Lean" (a cycling plan in a book by SELENE Yeager). I found that cycling is a means of exercise that I can do on a consistent basis and not beat up my joints and ligaments. I've done both P90X and Insanity. They're excellent. They work, but physically they take a toll on your body that makes maintenance difficult. But more important than any PARTICULAR plan is that you HAVE a plan that you can stick with.

I also use a Polar HR monitor that gives me calories burned, % of fat calories, average HR and other key info.

Finally, I use an app called "Lose It" on my phone to quickly log everything I eat. In addition, the "Lose It" app, after giving it a bit of info about your weight loss, gain or maintenance goals will give you a daily caloric "budget" to meet that goal by whatever date you requested (within healthy reason of course). It has a HUGE data base of restaurant, grocery store and brand name foods caloric and nutrition data already within its data base. Oftentimes, instead of entering data for unknown foods, it allows you to simply scan the foods barcode with your phone's camera and all the particulars pop right up.

anyway. I can almost guarantee you that if you use those tools and stick with it, you will DEFINITELY meet your goals.

You are trying to weight? If so, I would recommend lifting weights and putting on muscle.

Yes. It is not for anybody who is over about 40 years old unless you are already in the kind of shape that you don't need it.

Lot's of jumping around so make sure that your joints are in good shape.

Good luck.

For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare

Re: GET IN SHAPE THREAD: Weight-loss, Dieters, and Exercise-enthusiast

Based on those body types i'm an endomorh

I have great legs, always have but I have a bit of a belly even though i eat well, do a LOT of walking daily and i'm still in a BMI that's healthy.

I've started doing some weight training about 5/6 times a week, around 30 mins a day. Not sure if I can see much of a change so far. I think my arms look more toned and slightly bigger. I think my belly has gotten slightly smaller but i;m gonna keep going. Oh plus i've cut out all crap Crisps, chocolate, biscuits that sort of thing. I do have the odd dessert though

GOOD LUCK IN 2014 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Seriously why don't you just eat a burger if you want to gain weight?

The best way to gain weight is to put on muscle. I'm as skinny as I've ever been but I weight a good 10 kg more because I have muscle in places I didn't before.

Starting weight training again this week but will probably keep to just once a week or something.

I'm been running every morning for like 2 months now. Only missed 1 day.
