Before and After, anyone?
Very nice, Bill! Awesome picture. And thank you, everyone, for the compliments.

Before and After, anyone?
I wanted to share this, as a new "in-between" picture. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/JjOE7w... I have started my own weight loss coaching company! How about that?! Seeing this picture of me - taken yesterday - I was amazed with the amount of muscle that is suddenly appearing. Sure, a chunk of body fat is also present - more than I had half a year ago, but one can't build muscle without gaining fat. It's now time to shred! :) Life is good! (And yes - I'm the one in the picture on the banner too!)

Need morning energy during 16:8
Bill, that's how I felt when I started reading his stuff. WOW! The beauty is that he explains things very clearly, and backs it up with science on a level that a moron like me can understand. Personally, I think the treadmill is fine as long as it doesn't "get in the way" of strength training. It's fine to burn some extra calories, as long as you eat them back in to not lose energy. Maybe this is actually where your lack of morning energy lies? Just a thought. Obviously, if you suddenly skip your treadmill walks/runs, then you also will need to adjust your calorie intake, but you know that. :) I love the way Mike talks about working out "smart" instead of "hard". I completely agree with him on that. Doing circuit ("circle") training has completely opened my eyes to that. I don't "waste time" when I work out, and this gives me enormous results in just half an hour three times weekly. Sweet! :)

Eat to Live
Very interesting - and congratulations on the massive weight loss! Do you at all focus on protein/fat intake in regards to muscle building? If so, what does the Eat To Live philosophy say about it? Where do you get your proteins, if you are mostly living off of vegetables?

Bill, this is the "2 meal mike" I was talking about! :) I highly recommend his book, "The 2 Meal Solution". You'll like it! Keld.

In regards to the coconut oil in the morning coffee... I know that "2 Meal Mike", who wrote the book "2 Meal Solution", which I find to be a LOT of good info on intermittent fasting and working out, is a firm believer in a scoop of coco-oil in the coffee. He feels that it gives a boost large enough that it is actually worth breaking the fast for it. Inspired by this, I decided to try it, but I felt absolutely no change. I did it for a few days to see if anything changed, but it didn't. Anyone wanna buy an almost full jar of coconut oil? :)

Hey Bill... I find it strange to hear that you don't find much energy in the mornings. I have OODLES of it, even on days where I didn't sleep well. Once I'm up and going, there is no stopping. Are you still following IIFYM along with 16:8? If so, are you making sure to hit your macros, to optimize your carb intake? Carbs give you energy, remember? Also, are you going with the recommended calorie intake? Remember, if you go too low, you will not only lose muscle, but also not have many carbs available, and thus not as much energy. I know that you know these things, but sometimes we stray from the beaten path. Just a friendly reminder. Hope you're doing good, my friend! Keld.

So damn proud! - part two.
Thanks, my friend. And yes, I did enter the contest. Well, he did it for me. Actually, the story is cooler than that. Normally, a reader can name a person to be entered to win. I'm the only one that the magazine went out of their way to find, to tell my story and have me participate. I'd say odds are good, but who knows? LOL.

So damn proud! - part two.
Hey guys. Well, I did it again. Actually, this one has been coming for a while. When I had my 2nd surgery to adjust excess skin, an email popped into my inbox. I was still in a haze when I read that a journalist wanted to get in contact with me. He had seen the [url=http://fatsecret.com/Comm... and wanted to write more. He wanted to enter me in a Danish contest, "loser of the year", where I could win a $3,000 gift certificate for traveling. I didn't even know there was a contest, but of course I'll try out! Nothing to lose, everything to win! There hasn't been named a winner yet - I haven't won yet, and I have no idea whether I will or not. However, part of the package is also a two page spread in a national magazine. It was so weird and surreal to talk to him on the phone, literally minutes after waking up after surgery. I'm glad he remembered to call later, because I had pretty much forgotten. :) Anyways, this Monday the magazine hit the streets. I think it's time for a "So Damn Proud! - part two". The article is in Danish, and I'm afraid google translate can't handle this one. Sorry, guys. I can tell you, it's basically my story. How I lived in the US for some years, moved back to Denmark, and how I now teach weight loss classes and live a much better, healthier and happier life than ever before. It's good story. I'm glad it's about me. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/ziiIvC... To see the full size image, click [url=http://i.imgur.com/ziiIvC... I don't really like to brag, but I am just so damn proud and I wanted to share. :) Thanks for reading. Keld.

Thank you, Bella. I appreciate the gesture. There is nothing I would rather do than help and inspire. In fact, a LOT more of that is coming soon. Stay tuned. ;)

Hi... New here
Welcome aboard, Jana. Your daughter is wise, pointing you to FatSecret. This place has changed - and saved - many lives, including mine. Feel free to add me as a buddy if you like. Mardee and Draglist are GREAT examples of what can be accomplished here. :)

weight loss is good but my body looks crap
Mummydee is right. If I were you, I'd focus WAY more on strength training than cardio. Build muscle, look good. :)

A little help
Definitely keep the cheat days to a level where they don't undo your hard work. From what I hear from you, you're doing well on strength training, which is essential on your level (judging from your profile pic too). Make sure you don't starve yourself unintentionally. Your body can handle a deficit of 30 calories per lb of body fat. Create a larger deficit than this, and you will risk losing muscle, which would be counter productive. Do you know your body fat percentage? This would help you enormously. I to some degree agree with Randypanz - protein is essential, but so is fat and fiber. Carbs are "just" for energy. Don't be too scared of how many grams of carbs you take in, as long as the other requirements are met. You can make all the calculations at www.iifym.com.

How accurate is the RDI that Fatsecret gives you?
Depending on your weight, gender, age and general activity, many people can easily lose weight on 2200 calories. I'm a good example of that. When I am in a weight loss part of my maintenance, I typically go for 2000-2500. As long as it is less than what you burn, it's all good. That being said, I myself went lower when I started my journey here. Today, I'm honestly not so sure it's a good idea. Remember, losing weight is never about eating as little as possible.

Ramping Up Fitness Program
This made me laugh hard! It's it awesome when we realize that we're doing WAY better than we thought? Of course, Bill (Draglist) is right. There is a point to be in the "fat burning zone" versus the "cardio zone". That being said, it I think the single most important thing is to do what you LIKE to do. Have you considered HIIT as an alternative? It's kind of best of both worlds. Check this out: http://russhowepti.com/hiit-ex... Keld.
