Thread: having trouble losing weight
3/28/2008 6:16pm, #11
i eat just about every two hours when i am at work and on the weekends. i try to balance my carbs and consume close to 100 grams of protein a day ( i weigh in at 128). I also keep my cals relatively low because I am out of training due to injuries and cant train like i used to. Cardio is key. I still do weights, though. Using light weights, high reps...but that is just because my sprained wists, rotator cuff and bad knee are severely limiting me. But I also do mainly kettlebell workouts/compound/supersets/ going from one exercise to the next with short rest periods. keeps my heart rate elevated and it's still somewhat of a cardio routine. We'll see how well it works. I'll have to see how much body fat i drop...because to be quite honest...i could care less about my actual weight as long as i am solid and lean...which i'm not at the moment..but i WILL get back there again!!! Stoopid injuries...

YOU CAN ONLY LOSE THE BELLY IF YOU CONSUME LESS CALORIES THAN YOU ARE USING.KEEP A GOOD AMOUNT OF LEAN PROTEIN IN YOUR DIET TO RETAIN MUSCLE MASS.WHEN YOU ARE HAPPY WITH YOUR BODY MAINTAIN YOURSELF BY SLIGHTLY ADJUSTING YOUR CALORIE INTAKE IN REGARD TO WHETHER YOUR LOSING OR GAINING WEIGHT WEEK BY WEEK.KEEP THE CARDIO UP BUT ALSO REMEMBER IT DONT MATTER HOW MUCH CARDIO YOU DO IF YOU EXIST ON CREAM CAKES,CHOCOLATE,AND PIZZAS.GOOD LUCK

Cutting all fats is not a good idea. Eat healthy fats (i.e. omega-3 rich fat like extra virgin olive oil, the oils in fish and the fat on lean 'game' meats like Venison) rather than unhealthy fats (like industrial-grade vegetable oils, synthetic hydrogenated fats like margerine) and avoid combinations of fat and high-GI carbs like the plague (i.e. white bread and cheese or butter, potato chips, fries, egg-fried rice etc..)!!RENT SPACE HERE FOR 10 VBUCKS PER LINE PER MONTH!!

Well, I was being slightly glib. I did Circuits (5 x per week) for 12 years before I was persuaded to undertake a Weight Circuits Class. The sports centre introduced a "machine room" and were trying to inveigle users to drop Circuits, Aerobics to amplify their cash-flow.
For Weights. I still do them up to Thrice weekly. I have more than a passing knowledge.
Running. Still do it but not as much as I would like.
Cycling. Broke my 20+ years (everyday, Winter etc) commuting/touring Claud Butler last year. Replaced with a superb MARIN hybrid, which was stolen from outside the doctor's surgery while I was having my shoulder looked at.
Like I said, I was being glib, as I'm fairly sure you already knew.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

go to your local military branch and act like you want to sign up, they'll give you a weight loss plan to get into the right fit bmi (they do the right BMI tests, not the stupid ass weightxheight ****) and just follow that. It worked great for my buddy Paul who went from 220 to 175 in about 3 months

TS, just eat less, avoid sugar, and eat simple. Work out three times per week and drink plenty of water.
