Same as me. try to keep the fat low, high proteins but all the carbs I need especially when I am headed to the gym; in teh gym four or five times a week w/ cardio and weight machines. try and go before work every day.

You're absoluotely right, eKatherine. I think what I find so postive about tracking my body's measurements is that it is not abstract like body weight. When you lose a half inch off your waist or hips (or thighs and biceps, which I also track) you know you are making progress that you can see in a mirror. I only check once in a while, and I actually record the progress in my journal on F/S so I have a handy place to store it. I am still a long way from a six-pack, but for me it gives some quantification to my progress that's a little more refined than jsut weight.

So, I am a happy camper. I've made a lot of progress and seem to be getting to where I want to be. I see all the comments on weighing your self, but if you are serious about working toward a healthy body you have to measure your body. I will show you the folks I use, details below in cluding my measurements. Please let me know how you feel about the need to measure yourself; I track a few measurements not included in the calculators below as well, pls feel free to mail me or buddy me if you want any help or want to discuss -thanks, Neal 51 So - this is the url of the site that I use for recording measurements; it includes five differnet measurement calculators. I have no interest in the site. Let me know if you use it and how it works for you. [b]http://www.healthstatus.com...

Why should you weigh yourself?
Some of my buddies on Fat Secret say I weigh myself too much. Currently,I weigh myself every morning twice. Once, after I go pee pee first thing in the morning. Then the second time is after I finish at the Gym, and have sat in the sauna ten minutes but before I shower cause the water drops on my skin probably weigh a lot. Then, I update the lowest of the two weights on Fatsecret, if I have dropped weight. If I haven't dropped I don't update. If I have dropped on my first morning weigh-in, and then drop on my second, I also update again. Does this make sense? One of my buddies said they track their progress by taking a bunch of measurements? What kind of nonsense is that? (:) I noticed there were over 1,000 post to a question about when one should weigh oneself - so I thought it might make sense to ask why one should weigh one self? [/b]

Lot 5pounds, but can't budge off 195
Thanks, Preggo. I am not drinking enough water and I will work on that. I get lots of healthy protein from Body fortress; usually 3-5 scoops a day; so that helps keep the protein high and the carbs low - I have also been keeping fat below 20%; but I am now going to swtich to very low carb; under 40 grams, so the fat will go up to probably go to 30 or 40% as I switch to real meat.I wouldn't mind more calories; I've just been sliding it down from 200o daily to 1500 every couple of weeks in an attempt to get the fat to start to burn; but it's not working. I do drink three scoops of B Fortress before I work in the morning so I do have a decent shot of 20 or 30 G carb and 60 Grams protein, and I don't seem to be losing the stregnth to maintain my normal intensity workouts - it may have slipped a little, but not much.

Lot 5pounds, but can't budge off 195
:( I work out pretty well, last two weeks been every day with 1.5 hours of weight training on off days and 1.5 hours on the elliptical on the other days, 5 or 6 days week. So, I'm 5" 10.5" and weigh 195 so I still have a BF % in the 335 range with about 30 or 40 pounds of body fat and Im having a hard time budgung off 195 - it's been onths - check you my histry and you will see that Im running soemtime a 1000 or more defifict - but no budge - so I am officially moving to LOW CARB lo calorie starting today - as i push down to 1500 calories daily now,it has been getting lower and lower anyway... I'll see if that works -- Thoughts?

Whey Proteins.....what can you do with it?
Thanks! But I was hoping I could turn it into something hot - maybe a sauce or something if it came in plain whey without the flavors - I think I remember seeing it in health stores but I'm not sure.

Whey Proteins.....what can you do with it?
So0....my Doc said I should be eating 150 Grams of protein a day since Im going to the Gym 5 times a week. Which turned me into as carnivore, eating large chunks of meat 10 ounces at a time...mostly lean ham.... Soo...then I found whey shakes (Body Fortress) and I do less meat .... But the shakes are kinda funny tasting....and dull..... What else can you make with whey....can you buy it in other than strawberry and chocolate peanut butter, etc etc......

protein
HEY ! I just noticed that I was 41 pounds lost with 41 pounds to go - that's pretty cool.

protein
Ollie's making sense. I started my journey at 247# (5 foot 10.5 inches) and a body fat % of 41; that was Sept 1 - now I am at 206 and 28 or 29%, I've always been good at recording but only the last month at balancing nutritional input. In October - my DOC told me to be sure and get 144 grams of carbs cause I was sorta high protein low carb, adn she explained that I was metabolizing muscle beacuse of it. Then, on Jan 7 I got a full body fat scan (I'll post where and how later) and it gave me a very precise picture - that process calcualted that I needed about 155 grams protein daily - one gram per LEAN (not fat) pound of weight. Since then, I've been doing that but I have also been trying to keep below 10-15 % fat intake and that has need working well for weight loss. Lower fat intake tips are egg beaters (make a giant omelet that has almost no fat, with veg and lean ham) and also protein shakes for a quick pick up on protein with out massive quanitities of tuna and meat.....hope this helps....im shooting for 10-12 % BF which I think is 160-170 pounds. Good luck!!
