-- Let's talk about counting calories & routine

Hi Guys,

I'm up to a 36 waist - thanks to Del Taco and a few others. As well as eating pretty poorly over the last year, or so.

I'm on a strict regimen now and doing a three week diet and then merging it into a new way of life. I have a history of eating well (normally) - but, again; have been quite clumsy over the past year or so.

My plan is to limit myself to 1100 calories a day the first week, then up to 1200 the second week, and then stay on or around 1500 calories as the norm, with one cheat day per week.

After the third week - I'll get back into some sort of exercise, which too will be part of the new 'way of life'

In this thread I'd like to discuss food ideas for assisting myself (& others) with weight loss.

Since Monday I've not gone above 1100 calories/daily - I have eaten oatmeal, oranges, bananas, hard-boiled eggs and in closing, in the evening - I'll eat one of the Chick Fil A Spicy, grilled chicken wraps w/o dressing (350 cals)

I'm open to ideas - but the goal is - finding items that are a little less common and more creative.

Please assist at your leisure - anyone else need assistance or interested in jumping aboard, I welcome it.

Thanks again

I don't care much for cooked veggies and too lazy for fruit. This is a nice way to get your fruits in and for a "fix" if you get the munchies.

any fruit (sliced up apples, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, pineapple etc) yogurt (I use strawberry), a little heavy whip cream, cottage cheese, granola.

Whip up a batch, put some in a small tupper, freeze the rest for later.

Munchies: eat 4-5 spoon fulls. Done. Got my fruits for the day.

I eat one meal a day. Just snacked on 5 spoonfuls of coleslaw, crab salad and yogurt. In a few hours if I get the munchies again...some nuts.

I also try and get 10,000 steps in a day. I try and stretch every night before bed. I have just recently started doing a stomach routine (2 types of crunches 20 per, 30 leg lifts, a leg left for 60 sec all without rest), 3 sets of push ups 30/20/10. Since I am already on the ground for the stretching...why not spend an extra 2 min to do the stomach thingies? Roll over and knock out the push ups. I am trying to start out slow and not over down it. It is easy to do.

I will incorporate rowing next week for 25 min a day. I have a nice rowing machine that laughs at me every time I walk by I will also start light dumbbell work.
thats a shit ton a good decision making going on right there. Way to go!

There's nothing wrong with diet sodas on a cut. Your sodium intake will go up a bit, but as long as you're consistent it'll even out. The main thing is there's no cals or sugar in them. Drink extra water as well and it'll help flush out the water weight that diet sodas will keep in your system.

Just as shitty for you as regular soda. Tastes worse.

If you want soda, drink the real thing.

If you want to cut out soda here's how. It's a bitch, but it is 100% effective.

Eliminate sugar for a week. 7 days. You can eat fruit, nothing refined. No BBQ sauce, or anything else with sugar or high fructose shit. No cookies, bakery stuff, dessert. You will be a bitch on days 2-5. This is when you're beating the addiction.

After a week soda is way too sweet for you. It'll taste nasty. And fruit will be sweeter than you ever remembered.

Now, keep sugar intake low, which isn't hard cause everything will taste way too sweet. If it starts tasting good again repeat process above.

I LOVE lemonade. Can't drink it anymore cause it's so sweet it's disgusting.

One thing I’ll share that’s been successful for me in “hot chicken”. Just stick some raw boneless chicken breasts or turkey breasts in a crockpot with your favorite dry spices. A little onion. Pour a bottle of Franks hot sauce over the chicken. 6 hours later, great low calorie shredded chicken.

Frank’s has no sugars or creme. Vinegar and spices only. Even salsa and sriracha has sugar in it.

Thanks.

I don't "diet". When I eat, I try another exercise. It is called the "push away". Don't eat fast and when you feel kinda full, stop and push away from the table.

Losing weight, like anything in life is just 6 inches. That is the space between your ears.

All in all, it is a life style change. Make good habits then they are normal habits. It took awhile to put in on, it will take awhile to get it off. Every time I put something in my mouth, I think of what it is gonna take to lose it.

I weigh myself every day to keep the focus. If I have an Oops, it is an oops not a Holy Crap I can't lose weight. Not a sprint but a marathon.

Absolutely not. Drinking sugar is far worse.

I was always around 224-227 then I moved to KC in 2015 and eventually got up to 248.

two months ago I gave up all alcohol and lost 8 lbs in a month. I have been stuck at 240 for a month now, hoping to eventually get back down to the low 220's. I better start working more at it.

Well welcome TE I think if we all stick together - we can find some success. I'm about 227 at 6' 1" - I'd like to be around 195

If i can make 1 recommendation to you it woyld be this:

Dont worry about cutting calories or changing anything right now.....if you want to "re calibrate" , install my fitness pal and just


Track and input EVERY SINGLE thing you consume. Do not try and cut back. Just look at the data for a few weeks.

Then, assess how to cut back....AFTER the initial period of just logging everything like a diary. Once you get in the habit of logging everything, changing your diet and trimming back little bits here and there is far, far easier

Hell, even if you do nothing but jyst honestly log everything for a couple MONTHS before you attempt to cut calories...it WILL help
