-- 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 really like it, but it's more off and on for me at this point.... when I'm on it, I stick to ~50 carbs/day (not including fiber), which is on the high end, but it's a good number for me.

For relatively short term weight loss, it's been great. I've used it a a few times at 2-3 months and lost weight pretty quickly. I'll probably never stick with it 100% long term, but still don't eat the really obvious carbs (I used to eat a ton of pasta, pizza, Clif bars, bagels, etc.) and don't drink as much beer.

When I'm committed to it, there are still days I cheat a bit (like once every few weekends), but even then I try not to go much over 100 or else it becomes frustrating to get kicked out and have to spend 2 or 3 days feeling hungry all the time.

And of course there are times where it's just not all that feasible, like around the holidays and when I'm travelling a lot.

Long term is of course a lot more about sustainability and I personally wouldn't keep to under 50 carbs/day all the time.... at the same time, it's really opened my eyes to how much I was eating overall and how I'm sure I was on the fast track to diabetes.

1 soda, probably 200 or 300

a lot of people (and I was one of them) do not realize they are eating more calories than they burn every day...and even if youre a LITTLE BIT off , it means you constantly gain instead of maintain or lose...

its REALLY hard to estimate (for me anyway)....so i simply have to keep track or I go over too much.
I totally agree. It wasn't until I started to really track down to tablespoons of BBQ sauce or whatever that I realized how bad I was at estimating how much I was eating per day.... and once I started looking at a 500 calorie deficit/day, I didn't realize 1) how excessive my eating habits were, and 2) how relatively little food I could survive on.

And when I don't track, I tend to fudge a little here and there, so it keeps me honest, or at least in the ballpark.

36 is your moment of panic for me it is a number I haven't seen in almost 40 years yet is in sight.
Good luck friend

Iíve lost 24 lbs in 6 weeks. 48 lbs lost total in 3 months. Not counting calories. Portion control. More veggies/fruit. No burgers, pizza, pasta etc. Not doing any kind of ďdietĒ. Itís more of a lifestyle change than a traditional diet. Walking 2-3 miles a day.

Went out and heard some music drank 5 beers, had a pizza early in the week and some popcorn today at the movies. But thatís not been typical.

I was going to post this last week in a separate thread, but it works here as well.

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.

I don't imagine the occasional one will hurt. I may get some Diet DP at the store this evening.

yep; I believe it (the margin part).
I need to just cut out soda altogether. hell, only a few a week it's not like I'd miss it etc.

I probably just need to re-calibrate what i'm eating etc.

no worries.
I'm sure i probably eat other stuff that I don't realize, as you mentioned and it just adds up without me realizing it.

and yeah, I don't get any activity at all. 45 minute commute each way; 9-10 hours at work. get home, let dog out, get dinner ready; eat, clean up. Bam, it's 7:00-7:30. and I'm in bed by probably 9pm - 9:30. Brain dead/wiped out each night.

usually up by 630 and in bed by 930.

it almost all comes down to activity for me, I'm sure. when I was trucking and working flatbed, I lost 30lbs. strapping/chaining/tarping loads / up & off the trailer etc. I just need to get active again, but it's hard to find the time or energy. when it gets nicer, I'm going to start trying to go walk for an hour at lunch while at work. bring a snack I can eat while walking etc.

A few years ago I spent 8 days in the hospital and lost almost 40 pounds. I donít recommend renal failure, but it is effective.

Yeah, it's going to be tough for you to find the time and energy to make a change. Shit sucks.
