re: PuttaDaForkDown


From my deep interwebs search, it appears whole30 is a form of Paleo.

Yeah it's basically a strict 30 day paleo diet. No grains, no dairy for 30 days. It's pretty much what I normally do but it's getting my wife to do it with me so I'm happy. It's always better when we're on the same page since she doesn't cook.

Finally losing again. My legs and back are big as shit! Kidding. But lifting definitely halted the weight loss as I was eating like a pig.

slow and steady burn, just how I like it. The good thing is, 2 weeks into P90x, I can already start telling that my waist is shrinking, even if I'm not losing as much weight as I thought I might.

re: PuttaDaForkDown

But are there any suggestions on solid meals that don't have just grilled chicken? And would also love to know what most of you do for breakfast...hope i can keep it going, i love food and the worst kind....but great to see all the folks that are enduring. Again, any advice would be appreciated

Welcome! What type of diet are you doing? At your weight eating around 2,000 calories should help you to lose weight slowly. If you're looking to lose faster of course you can try cutting some more. I know personally I do best when I stay around 1500 calories a day. It does take time to adjust to that though.

Most of the people in this thread do some form of low carb diet. No matter what you do, it's usually a good idea to begin with cutting down on most sources of carbohydrates if you want to lose weight. Things like grains, rice, and processed foods.

As for breakfast, I personally skip it most days. When I do eat breakfast I keep it simple and usually eat eggs, sometimes with bacon, and maybe a piece of fruit. As for other meals. I know grilled chicken can get really old. How much fish do you eat? That's something I like to eat once or twice a week at least. Fish like salmon have a lot of good fat in them, plus for lunches I like to eat sardines every once in a while. Pan seared fish is always great.

What's most important is to find good foods that you like. If you feel like you're miserable while trying to lose weight it won't work. I've learned that the hard way. Feel free to post often in this thread, it's good to see what others are doing and to know that it's natural to have ups and downs. There are several people in here who have been posting for years and they've been succesful. Which proves that consistency is key.

thanks for the tips. I'm not on any particular diet,just watching calories. You said the dreaded words "cutting carbs" that's really hard for me,especially grains...I'm a sandwich nut. But I will definitely start incorporating fish into the diet. Thanks again

That bread is a pure convenience. You don't want it. You sure don't need it. Man doesn't want or need it. Especially fat men.

Cut it out first.

I know man. But once you don't have it for a few weeks and eat for a purpose? I'm still a fat frick...but I know I don't need bread, rice or sugar. If that sacrifice alone keeps me 20 lbs. lighter I'll deal.

Don't miss that stuff. It's gorge food.

Whatever works for you. I eat eggs...but I'm fat!

I really just don't see a needed place for carbs in a fat persons' diet.

re: PuttaDaForkDown


Ok cool, well I'm in this now!! Been reading previous pages...I definitely know I will have to pre-cook my meats for me to be successful throughout the week

I've actually done well at maintaining the last few years, even though I'm fat.....but i have to get this weight off and then try and find that happy median. I not trying to do anything drastic as far as losing weight fast, but I'd like to lose at least 25-30 in the next few months

Keep it up. I'm not going to go on a huge anti-carb rant but I'll give some thoughts on what will make you feel better and possibly lose weight faster.

-Slow-burn carbs only. NO BREAD. Not even wheat and "whole grain" breads, as they still have a high glycemic index.
-Quinoa is a fantastic source of carbs, it burns slowly and has a very, very small effect on your insulin levels.
-Real oatmeal is a great source of carbs. But don't get the quick fix stuff. Get whole oats and flax seed and make your own oatmeal.
-Sweet potatoes are a decent form of carbs. Still kind of high on the glycemic index. Partake occasionally.
-Avoid most cereals. Some Kashi cereals are okay, but most cereals are quick-burn carbs and laden with sugar.. just a bad idea all-around.
-Don't be afraid to ingest healthy fats. Healthy fats are great for you. Coconut oil, olive oil, avocado, animal fats, etc. are all great sources of healthy fats.


If you take in the right sources of carbs, you shouldn't have any problems with limiting your carb intake to ~150g/day. The only people that really need more than that are endurance athletes. The reason cutting carbs and/or eating slow burn carb works and helps you lose weight faster is all about insulin control. If you're eating those quick-burn carbs, and a lot of them, you're spiking your insulin at every single meal. When your insulin spikes, you end up storing excess carbs as fat. If you want to kill yourself exercising, you can burn off the stored fat. Or you can eat the right carbs at the right amount and a healthy amount of exercise and be well off anyway.

What H said!

My breakfast tip = Cheerios are not the answer. Do eggs and fruit.
Carbs =
Sodium >
Butter =

Huge bounce up.





I figured my recent surge down might be a little dehydration.
