    well, for the past 5 months, my diet has helped me lose 20 pounds. i've adjusted over the the last few months.

    at first i would skip breakfast not eat lunch at work and just eat once a day after work. usually rice and chicken. but now its 4 slices of toast with butter for breakie , 2 megamen multivitamin, 1 xyience xelerate, 1 thermolean. then no lunch till i get home from work, which might be a can of soup or maybe a couple of baloney sandwiches and some milk or koolaid. I've lost about 40 pounds since september, 20 in october alone from thai boxing in thailand.

    any thoughts?

    sounds like you're not eating enough and what you ARE eating is crap.

    I started eating 5 times a day, but only about 1700 or so calories, this speeds up your metabolism. Lost 20lbs in a few months. Not eating anything will work, but once you start eating again you'll just gain the weight right back because your metabolism is still slow.

    maybe, but my metabolism has always been slow. it seems like we both r eating about the same calories, the difference being the frequency of meals. and both lost about the same amount in similar times. oh i just got back from work, so thats why i never replied earlier

    Step 1.
    Read the fucking sticky
    Step 2.
    Your diet is terrible beyond terrible, worse than mine, and mine is bad
    step3.
    ask well thought intelligent questions, read beofre asking people shit like this, you are wasting everyones time.
    give us some reasonable information
    your goal: obviously to loose BF
    your current weight would help too

    Don't skip meals. Space your meals out more, try and get most of your carbs by 5:00 PM. Drop carbs some, increase fats and proteins. Aim for about 1700-2000 calories a day, eat better fucking food then bologna sandwiches. Stop drinking kool aid.

    Try and aim for a total diet of:

    Fat: 20-25%
    Carb: 20-25%
    Protein: 45-50%

    You should be fine.

    The point is if you eat cleaner and healthier, not only will you benefit from weight loss, you'll be perpetuating a better lifestyle in general.

    the stickies don't tell me whats wrong with the way i'm eating, just what i should be eating. i'm eating the same foods i've eaten my whole life, just less for the most part, i hardly feel terrible, and rarely feel hungry. i read posts, and most of the posts in this thread aren't worth responding too. i'm not looking for trouble, despite the personal attacks. If i could follow most of the diets given in most mags or what not, i would have long ago. but i don't prefer to feel hungry all day, which is what most of those diets do to me.you said i might have serious problems if i can't lose weight on 12-14k cals , well i ain't eating that few calories and i said i am losing weight eating what i am.

    well, aparently this link IN the sticky answers none of your questions....
    http://www.johnberardi.com/articles/training/winning_2.htm
    The next important variable is the macronutrient breakdown of the eating plan. With the recommended exercise program, the diet should contain a good proportion of carbohydrate energy to sustain the intense anaerobic exercise (40% - 50%). Therefore, with this eating plan you should be getting the approximate breakdown seen below (+/- 5% for each variable).
    Protein 29% (217g)
    Carbohydrate 47% (350g)
    Fat 24% (80g fat)
    And finally, let's get down to the variable I've been stressing in several of my articles, food selection. Here's a list of the very best foods. These foods should make up about 80% of your daily diet and you should be eating many of these foods each day, not simply picking one or two selections to eat all the time.
    Protein Foods:
    • Fish (salmon, tuna, cod)
    • Eggs
    • Chicken breast
    • Cottage cheese
    • Milk protein isolates
    • Whey protein isolates
    • Lean red meat
    Carbohydrate Foods
    • Vegetables
    • Mixed beans
    • Low glycemic index fruits
    • Oatmeal/oat bran
    • Mixed grain bread
    • Small amounts of protein-enriched pasta
    Fat Foods
    • Flax oil
    • EPA/DHA
    • Olive oil
    • Mixed nuts (no peanuts)
    For active individuals, an additional 20% of your daily calories should come from the following sources (in order to enhance your recovery from intense exercise). Note: The liquid meal should come during and after a workout while the second high carb meal should come about 1-2 hours later.
    During workout and immediately post workout meal:
    Protein: whey isolates
    Carbohydrate: High GI liquid glucose (dextrose) / maltodextrin
    NOTE: These ingredients, in exact proportions, along with a specific blend of branched chain amino acids, are contained in Biotest's Surge.
    1-2 hours post workout meal:
    Protein: plain yogurt or cottage cheese
    Carbohydrate: High GI solid fiber cereal
    In addition, here is the other list that I give to my clients. These are foods to avoid at all costs:
    Protein foods to avoid:
    • Fatty meats
    • Fatty dairy foods
    • Most lunch meat
    • Whole milk
    • A lot of soy
    Carbohydrate foods to avoid:
    • Regular bread
    • Sugar added foods
    • Most cereals
    • Soda
    • Fruit juice
    • Bagels
    • Fruit bars
    • Candy
    Fat foods to avoid:
    • Margarine
    • Vegetable oil
    • Corn oil
    • Heated or fried oils in general
    Some great rules I've found for making food selections are as follows:
    • Eat predominantly food (don't subsist entirely on shakes).
    • Avoid meals high in both carbohydrate and fat.
    • Always eat protein with each low GI carbohydrate or good fat meal.
    • Eat fiber with each meal (especially with your shake meals).
    • Drink water with each meal (at least 500ml).
    • Avoid real soda, fruit juice, and any beverages containing calories.
    And finally, what you're really looking for, here is an example of a diet that meets the above criterion. It's about 2800kcal (25%P, 45%C, 30%F) and is made up of the best food choices.
    *6 egg whites
    1/2 cup mixed beans
    1 thin slice real cheese
    1 cup Veggies
    2 oz mixed nuts
    1g EPA/DHA
    6 egg whites
    1/2 cup beans
    1 thin slice real cheese
    1 cup Veggies
    1 tbsp. flax oil
    1g EPA/DHA
    1 can salmon
    1 tbsp. Olive oil
    1 cup Veggies
    1/2 cup beans
    2 oz mixed nuts
    1g EPA/DHA
    Workout Drinks:
    (During)
    1 L water
    0.5 servings of Surge
    (Post)
    1 L water
    0.5 servings of Surge
    1st meal post workout:
    Mixed berries
    1/2 container cottage cheese
    0.5 scoop Grow!
    1 cup cereal
    2nd meal post workout:
    1/2 cup oat bran
    1 scoop Grow!
    Veggies
    1 piece fruit
    *You'll notice that some of these meals seem to "break" the massive-eating food combination rules (particularly the meals with beans). That's okay. Remember, the massive eating combinations were laid out to help you understand that high carb meals containing a high fat content should be avoided. In this plan, although some meals have modest amounts of carbohydrate and fat, they certainly aren't excessive. In addition, some of the very high fiber, low glycemic foods (like beans) are sort of an exception to the massive eating rule as they barely raise blood sugar (and blood insulin) anyway.
    *In addition, if you do decide to split up your weight training and aerobic/anaerobic training, you do not need to have 2 servings of Biotest Surge per day. Keep it simple and eat the same basic diet each day, taking your dose of exercise when you can.
    According to my calculations, I believe this article is now complete. Now that you have the eating and exercise plan for success, go out and get lean!

    well, i guess reading past the first sentance of the section that pertains to you is too much to ask.
    :eek4:
    Cutting (losing fat)


    Are you fat?

    To lose fat (hence get the fat off your abs so you can see them) you must bring in less calories than you are using in a day. If you are cutting you should intake about .85 X your maintenance calories or 2890 in the example above.


    Generally it is advised that you Cut no more than 500 calories below your maintenance level. If you try to starve yourself you will make it harder to lose weight.


    EDIT:
    and for all of the fuck tards who are going to come in here and claim morbid obesiety is the exception to this, this guy was not following any sort of PSMF, and if his true goal was health he still eats shit...

    ohh wait this is em saying this, Dissregaurd it because I too eat like shit.

    eat whatever you want, dont worry about how many carbs/fat/protein you get.. just watch the calories and eat generally healthy.. nothing to obsess over.

    it tells you that your diet sucks, because it is completely devoid of nutritional food of any sort. It also tells tyou you are nto eating enough hence why you apparently have a slow metabolism. the link also tells you how to fix all fo this crap.
    It seems that you are also completely lacking in any abillity to reason or make decisions on your own by becoming informed in addition to your extreme lazziness.
