Start Weight:(18 Jul 13) 181.0 lb
Current Weight:(03 Sep 13) 183.0 lb
Goal Weight:135.0 lb
following: Bingy's own diet
performance: gaining 6.1 lb a week

I've battled my weight for as long as I can remember. The only time in my life when I was a decent healthy weight was at the end of my highschool years and then plumited back into binging and eating blindly. So I'm trying this tracking my intake this time to see if this works and gets me back down to a decent healthy weight.

I'm the type to buckle under peer pressure and seems to only workout in fair weather. I'm disiplined but life seems to always steer me in the wrong direction when it comes to food and activity. This time though I'm determined for this to work and show me exactly what I'm taking in to open my eyes a little and render me back to a reasonable way of life.

@reddarin - I agree with you Smile

Do what feels right to you and your body Peytoh. Fit it in your life with your habits so you can't fail. Plan it and refine it as you go. Tailor it to YOU.

For example: my worst habit is binging (as per my Alias lol) and well I chose a diet/lifestyle that is fitting in with that bad habit and turning it good. I chose to become vegetarian and trying to follow 80/10/10 so now I'm binging on all the Fruit and veggies I care for, and in doing this I'm refining it to what my body is telling me. Seems to be working so far slowly, but I'm seeing constant benefits popping up after certain levels of detox have been achieved. I'm finding serious happiness in that and the mass amount of food I'm consuming equalling to a "normal" amount of cals someone should be taking in daily...which is way less than what I was consuming when I was eating just anything I could get my hands on when I was hungry.

I agree with Nag1ka on this. I've done the LC and lost a tone of weight quickly but couldn't maintain it. I've noticed that not restricting the limit of high quality carbs from vegetable and fruit is correcting some of my craving and other bodily issues. To the point where it's taking longer to loose weight but my body is more aware of what it needs, when it's actually full, and when it's actually hungry.

Controlling the amount of calories you are taking in along with the fat you are taking in (you need a little fat [at most 10% of daily intake, about 30-20gm or less] don't get me wrong for joints, brain, etc., from nuts, avocado, fish-for none vegitarian/vegan) it should be the key, that way you can plan your activity see about how much you will burn and eat accordingly.

Amount of protein would be based on the amount muscle you al looking to gain and maintain....

From what I've researched thus far you can have as many carbs as your body desires it's the source/type of the carbs that will make the difference. As for sugars again it's the source/type that will make the difference (mainly just get it from fruit and plant based sources as it is easy for your body to metabolize into energy). And for sodium 100 mg per Liter... keep it low and if you need a salt alternative add celery to your meals instead of salt.

Hope this helps Smile

Late Night Workouts
It's all circumstantial and our bodies adjust to our routine. If your routine works for you and it's healthy, your body will reward you with success if your weight loss goals. If you find that working out late interrupt your sleep I would try drinking a nice hot cup of chamomile tea... this will calm you right down and whisk you into slumber. Also most grocery store sells tea called "Sleepy Time" which has the same effect ..hence the name.

Drink that with a small/mini protein rich snack.. like (Greek) yogurt, or 1tbsp real peanut butter on celery, or hand full dried apricots and almonds, hand full trail mix.... you'll see it will satisfy your hunger and keep you till you wake up.
