Hi guys. Im new and just found out about this site but ive been online almost everyday eversince. Ive been trying to find people i can connect with to help me get started with living healthier (and hopefully longer). Besides being a newbie in this site, i dont know a darn thing about any diets (except the most obvious, you know eating less), or how to stay motivated in loosing weight. I have tried jologs efforts to eat less before, also to exercise more but kept loosing motivation before geting any significant results. Stress with work keeps getting me distracted with my goal. Do you have any good ideas i can use? Hope to hear from you guys. Magandang araw Smile

HELLO ... I am also new on this site. What have you achieved so far? I am also looking for a fitness buddy. I'd like to call it fitness buddy so that I won't be pressured into dieting and exercising too much. What are your plans?

A good way to keep your motivation high is to frequently look at pictures of great physiques, for example, Brad Pitt in the movie Troy. You might find that every time that you look at a great physique, you are inspired to up your game and take your fitness goals to the next level.

Eating less is actually a bad idea on fitness. Sure, you'll lose weight at first, but then your body will go to starvation mode and slows down your metabolism. Your body will adjust to that less calorie intake diet so when you go back to eating normally, you will gain weight.

So you're saying is, we should continue with how we eat and focus more on working out?

no. what I am saying is slashing calorie intake drastically is wrong. of course you should eat less because of the calories in-calories out rule but cut calories gradually. for example, cut 500 calories out of your daily calorie budget today by not getting a second helping of rice or passing up a 12oz bottle of soda.

plan your nutrition strategically to reach your goals (lose fat, build muscle, power your workouts). Eating clean is key to build the physique you are after -- you cannot out- train a bad diet.

Here's a link to one of my blogposts that explains diet still matters even if you go to the gym
