    Diet Thread - for all those who want to lose weight

    I am starting this thread for all of you who want to or are thinking about shedding a few pounds. For those of you who already have a good diet, maybe you could offer some advice to others. Anybody who has some knowledge is encouraged to post here. I will start with me.

    When I got out of the Army in 1996, I was 165 lbs; lean and fit. I have always had a great metabolism and never gained weight. That was until I went on my honeymoon.

    Long story short, being promoted to a supervisor at work meant that I was not required to do much manual labor anymore. And now that I went back to school I have added a few pounds. I peaked at 213.5 in January, I am only 5'11. It was mainly my gut; I kinda looked pregnant.

    So, I decided it was time to do something about it. I was very disgusted with myself and really depressed. So, through church I joined a diet group. The diet I was doing was to eat every 2 1/2 - 3 hours and intake something small and healthy. There was no eating after 5 pm (eating late really kills you...big time). We were supposed to use a treadmill or walk briskly 4 times a week. I did not do the exercising, but with the diet I lost 5 pounds in the first week and about every week thereafter. Oh yeah, drink a buttload of water too.

    About 3 weeks ago I was not losing anymore weight. I started lifting again but I always overslept on the days when I had to do cardio (run or swim). I was only down to 198 for weeks.

    So, just playing around I changed the diet a little to kind of "shock" my metabolism a little. I only ate every 4-5 hours and did not eat much. But I kept my protein high. Most would say that it is not good to do this because your body will store fat and go into starvation mode. I did it anyways for a week and now I am back to my other diet plus trying to eat more vegetables.

    Today, I weighed in at 191. So, I have lost 22 1/2 lbs since Feb. 1. My waist has slimmed down a bit, but it mostly has come off of my butt and legs. My pants are almost too big now; which is a good thing.

    I missed my workout today, but tomorrow I am hitting it hard everyday this week and my goal is to be at 187 by nexy Monday.

    I will be posting some links here soon. Please join in and help encourage others. Its not bad. I am not starving. The first week was tough but my body got used to not eating so much.

    Lets do it!

    Re: Diet Thread - for all those who want to lose weight

    I try to stay away from processed foods and seriously watch out for what you drink. Stay away from fruit juices, non diet sodas, non diet ice teas, etc...they have an unbelievable amount of calories in them

    I do not even drink diet soda anymore, just water.

    Also, you burn more calories with cold water because your body is working harder to regulate the temperature.

    Soda has a ton of sodium. Sodium = bloating.

    Re: Diet Thread - for all those who want to lose weight

    Congrats Ultra!

    I too went on a diet -actually I should say, changed my eating habits. ("diet" sounds too "temporary") NO MORE Mountain Dew and junk food, eat every 2 1/2 hours, work out 3-4 days a week... etc.

    Since the beginning of January I've lost 20 lbs. of body weight while, at the same time, adding muscle lifting weights. I'm 5' 9" and hit 202 this winter and said enough is enough. Now I'm at I82 lbs. and counting.

    It's nice to look down and see...."it" again. :lol:

    Re: Diet Thread - for all those who want to lose weight

    I do a different diet, before going to college i was around 210 at 5ft9, after sophmore year decided it was time to work out.

    I eat healthy during the week, yogurt, sandwhiches, fruit and water for lunch, a power drink for dinner (frozen banana, milk, protein powder) that's it for dinner.
    After work i go work out, i run for 15 - 20 minutes then lift weights for an hour.

    I eat whatever I want on the weekends, and i'm at 165 lean and fit. By keeping to this diet, your metabolism stays high, it's nice to get fat into the system, and i can't stand doing the eating every 2.5 hours, i get too hungry
