    Great job! I am curently trying something similer, except i have cut all simple carbs out of my diet, but i am not cutting a lot of the sat fat out(but am keeping it reasonable). I stopped smoking Nov '04(i smoked for 33 years), and i packed on 50 pounds i could ill afford to gain. Last December i went over 300#,a nd it scared the fuck out of me. I see my doctor every 6 months, and i get a blood test. We finally got my cholesterol down and my BP is good, but now my blood sugar is up and i am borderline diabetic. I have always been very healthy, an di dont like this bullshit, so i decided i needed to do something about it.
    I went on the diet (basically its south beach) in early January. So far i have lost approx 30#. I am hoping to get down to 225, and i am hoping to do that by the end of 06.
    Congrats!!

    diet alone = minimal gains

    exercise alone =minimal gains

    exercise + diet = excellent gains


    exercise burns calories, but its real bonus is raising your metabolism. Then you'll be burning a lot more calories ALL the time, even when you're not exercising. Also, eating a lot of smaller meals throughout the day > eating one or two big meals.

    I can remember back to the original F&N thread (Attn:1320) and remember 1320 saying he was 235lbs. I remember thinking "god I wish I could get down to that weight!"

    on a side note, just got back from the gym. Did and abbreviated workout cause I'm feeling a little sick. 2 sets each of curls, bench press, incline bench press, and whatever you call the one where you put your knee on a bench and lift up a dumbbell straight up off the floor. then 15 min on the stationary bike, 15 min in the eucalyptus room, 15 in the sauna and 10 in the spa. bowl of special K for breakfast, tuna on wheat sandwich and a grapefruit for lunch with a whey protein shake and a fish oil cap.

    i kinda like going to the gym. Cause once I'm there, I have the motivation/lack of distractions to actually do it. If I had all that equipment on one side of my house, and my nice comfy couch on the other side.... well..... the couch would usually win.

    I lift in my basement, I've got a ton of free weights, never been to a gym in my life. I've got a treadmill too. I'll usually run one day and lift the next.

    oh and I live on whey protein, aleast 80g a day

    you have more motivation than me. I can't workout at home. I end up looking up porn on the net then going to bed. I get a good hour of lifting at the gym.

    I am thinking about taking a supplement but I can't find one I like. I am starting to get to the point where my muscles hurt like a mother on the off days, kinds like they can't grow fast enough. What does the protein do?

    also protein is good if you need energy, it doesn't get you going like carbs but it doesn't let you down as fast. When your trying to burn fat and gain muscle protein is the most important part of your diet. Not just whey though, you need meat too.

    I've heard of people taking as much as 1g per pound of body weight daily to sustain muscle mass.

    I've noticed that the past couple of years also. Then I realized that I was over 30. Lot of joint cracking on the warmup sets too.

    no shame in resting

    I'd rather be hurting than stuck on a fucking plateau (like now)

    Get into bicycling, nothing drops weight faster than bicycling and it's a whole lot more fun than real exercise

    I'm on week 4 with ediets.com now, and I've lost about ten lbs. I'm on 12-1300 calories a day, low sodium, low fat. It's working out really well for me, they give me menus and a shopping list, so all I have to do is cook. I wouldn't know what to eat otherwise. I had a membership at the ymca, but I'm unable to go since I moved. However, I did buy a total gym a few days ago. So I'll see how that works out. I've been taking thryin atc as well.

    yeah I've been injesting mass amounts of protein. the OT F&N forum guru's suggest between 1g and 1.5g per pound.

    that sounds a little low. if you eat too little your metabolism will go into crisis mode and start conserving. or so i've read. I dont think i've ever experienced that problem. :o

    your daily caloric intake while dieting depends on your baseline metabolism

    your average males baseline is about 2100-2300 depending on some factor while your average womens is 1700-1900
