re: Dealing with snacking at work
OP, you can still snack throughout the day. Instead of eating snacks from work, pre-pack some fiberous and low-caloric foods that can be filling. Every day, I eat a snack pack that I make of celery, cucumber, baby tomatoes, sweet peppers, and hummus; it fills a meal prep container and is generally near 150 calories. I eat it at 2ish and make it to 5:30 dinner without any problems. I'm going to get blasted for this, but get on Pinterest and get some healthy snack ideas and measure out your portions!

I also recommend 2 1mile walks a day rather than 1 2 mile walk. Getting active more often is better than more activity at once. Go on a walk before you shower in the morning. Do you get a break at work? If so, grab a protein bar and walk for 10-15 min.

There are ways to do this without drastically changing your diet all at once. You don't need to follow any specific diet plan. Just get yourself moving more throughout the day - not in the gym, just in life - and take healthy snacks with you to work, and watch what happens to your body.

re: Dealing with snacking at work
What is your aim here?
I recommended sugar alternatives.

I also listed fruit as an option in smoothies. There should be no problem with that. If you're under the impression that all "sugars" are the same, just stop responding to me. That's probably for the best anyway. Perhaps you can find someone else to misrepresent.

Sugar is sugar doesn’t matter the vehicle it comes in. Sugar isn’t necessarily bad, however for someone like the OP who is having issues with snacking sugar is a horrible choice. He needs high leptin foods such as eggs, red meat, etc to suppress ghrelin.

This thread is a great microcosm for the fitness industry in general, minus shitty influencers with stupid shake diets and cleanses

I apologized. If you can’t be a man and accept it, then go frick yourself.

And by the way, all sugar is the same.

re: Dealing with snacking at work
You should do some research before saying things like that that equate all sugars. Different types are processed very differently in the body.

Eggs and meats are a good idea, as I've already said. But just remember, you get hungry for a reason. Yeah, a person can do things to suppress hunger or overcome it with willpower. (I've done that a lot. I can go 24-36 hours without food very easily.) But hunger is what we feel because the body wants nutrients. A lot of people are deficient and don't even know it. Get some bloodwork done and it might surprise you.

I'll accept your apology, but this is really sidetracking the thread for OP.

Instead of having a flow of information to discern and apply toward the goals, there's this back and forth over who didn't say this and that. It just muddles things up.

The OP is 100 lbs over weight. His "hunger" has nothing to do with nutrients and everything to do with being addicted to sugar.

You've recommended foods that give little satiety and are often times foods that are most notoriously over eaten. For someone that admittedly doesn't even know how to make a smoothie, much less eyeball portion control, they don't need to be eating those foods.

Everything you've posted is some woe is me yalls recommendations will be too hard, just stuff your face with sugar alternatives. He can do that and stay fat and addicted to sweets, or he can come to the realization that this won't be easy, he'll feel like he's sacrificing a lot at first, and its going to take a lot of change.

re: Dealing with snacking at work
Oh frick...

Okay...where are you getting that "100" number from?

I saw 40 pounds over BMI, which is very far from a flawless standard anyway. I've been well over my supposed "BMI" and lean as frick.

I have tried to recommend things that would be helpful based on the little information provided about the circumstances. This is about snacking at work, so I tried to come up with things that were convenient. I tried to be general because we don't even know what OP does for work, or other important factors.

If you're scared to eat fruit, we are just on such different planes here. Diabetes is not skyrocketing because of fricking fruit. It's all the unnatural stuff like excessive added sugar, HFCS, artificial garbage like aspartame, mixed with all the other garbage in foods like hydrogenated oils.

I said none of that other garbage in your post, so you can frick off. There will be better and worse ways to go about these kinds of goals. I think it would be better to establish a baseline of healthy eating as opposed to just jumping into fasting for a person who is already likely deficient in nutrients.

He said himself he wanted to lose 75 pounds. 40 go get out of obese and another 35 to get out of the overweight category.

Are you 300 lbs eating 6 bags of cookies a day and just started walking a couple of days a week as your exercise?

This is about snacking at work,


So you only read the thread title and not the several paragraph body?

quote:

I do

Like what? He laid out most of his day in the post

I never said that. Though you are wrong about the sugar in fruit being different.

quote:

I agree

quote:

I agree, the problem is it doesnt matter how healthy it is if you are still eating 5000 calories a day of it. That is the problem with many of the recommendations you made. He's going to over eat nuts if he doesn't even know how to operate a blender that's just a fact. And a smoothie isn't going to fill him up and fuel his sugar addiction.

quote:

jumping into fasting for a person who is already likely deficient in nutrients.


Fasting is going to have zero affect on nutrient deficiency. You are stuck on that and it's fairly irrelevant as opposed to all the other problems.

By the way, I don't think there was anything "hard" about what you suggested. If OP wants to eliminate snacking and fast, okay. But at some point, you have to feed your body the right nutrients to maintain good health. I'd focus on starting there based on the context provided, but obviously people can do what they want.

Id start by trying not to suddenly die of a heart attack or get diabetes or some other chronic disease due to my weight rather than worry about how much calcium or zinc I'm getting, but that's just me.

re: Dealing with snacking at work
Right, so...I still don't see how you're getting 100 from that. And if we're talking about 32 pounds away from "BMI", that other 35 seems questionable.

Other factors like access to a refrigerator/freezer, time for meal prep, etc. Specifics on any health conditions, fitness level. All this would be relevant information.

No, it's not a "fact" that he's going to overeat nuts, and no one said anything about 5,000 calories.

Yeah, fasting will have an effect on nutrient deficiencies if one is not getting those nutrients in their diet. Have you ever had bloodwork done? (And yes, sugar in fruit is "different". It is natural sugar bound with fiber. Part of the rationale of suggesting fruit is because it will also deliver vitamins and minerals that are probably currently lacking. And there are many more variations with "sugars". If you are really that fricking ignorant, you can start with the glycemic index.)

This is not going well...

Nothing about establishing healthy eating should result one of your dramatic, made-up catastrophes. However, it could help future fasting go a lot smoother.

This isnt his first post on the board.

I know all of that info.

You're right, its probably more in the 95% range.

Yes, and that argument is stupid because many of those indicators change as soon as you eat. You arent going to lose bone density from not getting calcium during a 16 hour fast. Im not sure what your point is here

quote:

So its sugar, got it

The same ones you can get in a multi vitamin while not continuing to feed your sweet tooth and snacking addiction.

No there is sugar and there are different ways it affects your blood glucose, but its still sugar.

You're hung on this like I'm saying fruit is bad, im not. I'm saying this guy has multiple problems that eliminating as much sugar and snacking as he can for a short amount of time will help. Fruit is part of that strategy, not fruit is bad.

True. Last time I was 220 (my initial goal weight) I was a starting center, as a freshman, on my school's JV football team. That was 25 years ago...
