Create a deficit
Enjoy the food, enjoy the culture, how often are you going to go to India.
I would include exercise into the equation to be really healthy.
1. A stead pace wins the race. Track what is working and what is not, a journal is your friend.
2. Feeling good, really is 100% in your mind, a person eating 100% junk food can feel on top of the...
I don't think you are losing muscle mass, your muscles just appear smaller when they are drained of glycogen and water. Creatine can help give the more full look. Upping your carbs is another way...
I eat similar to you, very low carb. I say if it's not broke don't fix it!
Once in a blue moon, I will eat high carb, you know all the junkie stuff (pizza, beer, fries, chocolate), then I jump...
Skip the protein shake as well, its just extra calories you could consume during a meal.
You just need to drink plenty of water, eat when you eat.
We need to simplify all of this nonsense that...
Measurements are good to do, and using a scale once a week if need be.
Throw away the protein powder, total waste of your calorie...
Track your calories. If you want to lose a pound a week, drop your daily calories by 500 for a total of -3500 per week.
It all boils down to calories in vs calories out
You don't need any insulin boost after your workout, that's all b.s.
I will work out first thing in the morning, go hardcore for 1 1/2hours, finish around 10am, and eat around noon-2pm, never a...
I had a similar problem, I found it was the cottage cheese with me. I cut that out and everything went back to normal.
I also found a probiotic supplement very helpful.
Now just to make a few points about total calories. I got your BMR and you need to eat approx 1800 per day to stay the exact same.
You have stated that you eat in between 1500-1800 per day.
Very true, I am sure Grok didn't count calories, or worry if he ate over maintenance or not. But he didn't have a super market he could roll into and get anything he wanted to eat for the day.
I know you guys don't like to count calories but lets face it, the #1 rule in weight loss is, consume less calories then you burn = Weight loss. Trying to bury our heads in the sand is not the...
Well yes, I think the exact same thing, but I understand from there standpoint why the are requesting the absurd.
Just so we are all on the same page, the surgery is for an inguinal hernia. I...
Ok, so I have minor surgery in less then a month from now. They want me to drop 20 pound in a month.
What would you do?
A few things to point out
1. Starvation mode doesn't start in terms of hours, more like days, I would say 3 days at the min.
2. A White Chocolate Mocha has 400 calories (that's equal to a...
Haha, I just read this answer yesterday, so here it is.
I was in part 2 of the 3 part IF thread
Wow, all good suggestions, keep em coming
If all else fails. You could fast for a day or two.
I don't know about cortisol, but you can have withdrawal from even 1 cup of coffee a day. I will say your mind has a lot too do with it. If your feeling some withdrawal symptoms, you can build it...
I find night time snacking to be my crutch.
I always wanna grab a salty snack and a sugary snack to go with my evening TV shows/Movie. Not sure if its more of a habit, or a craving or both?
Well, I get a day or so under my belt, then I end up falling off the wagon hard.
After the first day or so, I start dreaming of a 'cheat day' my mind starts racing through all the different crap...
Mostly water weight I would imagine
I would cut out the nuts and see if that helps.
1/3 cup of almonds (a big handful for me) is 270 calories, not very filling, and it sets up a craving for just a couple more, maybe 1 more small...
