Weight Loss Help Needed.
 
# 1 : Monday 23-8-2010 @ 16:48
 
 
Hey there folks.

I have been starting to get back into the weight loss game and I am wondering does anyone have any kind of progression spreadsheets, ideas on ways to track food intake, exercise done etc?

My plan is to start eating right, get back on the bike and start swimming, wish me luck

Yes, water, absolutely. Dont cut things out, replace with healhier alternatives - see it as a way to introduce new things into your diet. Lots of fruit and vegetable, low GI carbs. Give your body time to adjust - dont forget sustained weight loss is much preferable to quickly lost and just as quickly gained. Make the changes to your lifestyle that will be consistent, and dont forget - youll feel great when your body feels healthier inside.

Firstly good luck!

Secondly I am encouraged by the fact that you approaching this issue from a balanced perspective mentioning both diet and exercise. A good idea to help you track progress and provide motivation that is quick and easy is to take one photo of yourself as close to naked as you feel comfortable with each month. Each time you take the photo you will have passed a month of weight loss and when you compare the latest photo with the preceding ones you will really see a tangible difference.

Additionally any comprehensive weight loss plan must include a decent weight lifting regimen. While cardio is great at burning calories and increasing metabolism in the immediate aftermath only muscles can offer a long term metabolic improvement. Think of your muscles as little fat burning factories.

Good luck ! Yeah, diet and exercise is the only thing that works. Be realistic, it's not going to happen overnight, be in it for the long haul. And as people have said you need the right exercise regime, both crdio and resistance to build & tone muscle. Are you in a gym, don't know if you can afford it, but if you can a Personal Trainer would be great to work out the right programme for you. But your plan is great, stick with it.

well,for me karate and excercise are my way to loose calories and get my blood circulation going.which will be helpful on burning of fat plus,its also fun.secondy when it comes to food,i eat a lot of green vegetables,fish,carbohydrates.and i eat a lot.thats important as well.

a lot of people always thinks for making their body hungry when they are on diet.this just make your brain tell the body "well,the body is hungry so lets go on fat storage mode so the body can tolerate hunger better",so i think it better not to cut down what you eat,because we need certain amount of nutrients,mineral,calories everyday to keep our metabolism going.

well im not a physician but this way helps me keep my weight.

i weigh about 80kg,heavy weight compare to my height.i havent slept for the past 40 hours and only ate a little about 24 hours ago.all i keep on doing was meditating and relaxing.uposn seeing this post,i checked my weight,and quess what,i im about 77kg in the scale!wierd or probably misreading of the scale?to think that working mentaly can drain a lot of energy as well.lol

and dont forget water,thats important

Never do long duration exercises eg. an hour on the treadmill / bike. As a trainer I find there's no need for it and they usually leads to loss of focus, sometimes injury. Interval training and weight-training has better effect on aerobic ability. I'd say forget the long, slow exercises and stick to the short, sharp workouts. Intervals are the only realistic option for burning fat, increasing speed and stamina, and developing functional fitness.
Minimum three times a week.
Consistency is the key to obtaining great results. Even if you feel a little tired just train at a lower intensity on that day. It all adds up. Don't break a good habit!

If you struggle finding the energy to even get to the gym, one nutrient can help alot with that slumpy feeling.
Here comes the science bit: Co-Enzyme Q10 is a nutrient that is required for electron transport, generating energy within cells. Q10 is found primarily in meat and fish but it is also found in spinach, broccoli and whole grains.

Essential fatty acids Omega 3,6 & 9 help with fat loss as well as heart, brain and joint health. Sources are fresh fish like herring and mackrel as well as seeds such as pumpkin and sunflower which can be sprinkled on cereal / porridge. Can also be taken in capsules.

Eat five moderate sized meals a day and ensure a serving of lean protein eg. fish, chicken breast, eggs with veg at each meal. Eat food as fresh as possible (meaning as close to it's natural state, not packaged), and cook by steaming or poaching to retain the nutrients. Also drink plenty of water.

Hope some of that's helpfull if you didn't know it already. Good luck, keep us posted!
