O ho I hate water weight!!!!
Watch your salt intake. Pre packaged and prepared food is simply loaded with salt. I started tracking mine and found that, despite thinking I was eating relatively healthly, I was eating an average of 6,000mg/day, which is scary high. The cause? Deli meats, pre-cooked lean meats (turkey), whole grain breads, cottage cheese, salsas and other seemingly relatively healthy items.

More salt = more water retention.

And, drink until your urine is clear.

Appetite and exercise
Anyone else experience a _decrease_ in appetite when they exercise?

Strange as it is, I'm always more hungry when I don't exercise. When I'm being good about going to the gym, I can easily maintain my calorie goal. When I'm being lazy about the gym, I tend to overeat. Not sure if it's physical or mental.

What are some of your embarassing/emotional/eye opening reasons for loosing weight?
My embarrassing moment was when I realized my 67 year old dad undergoing chemotherapy was in better shape (hiking) than me.

Explain how someone can lose weight after initiating caloric surplus by cutting starch but actually upping calories with increased fat intake. Very Happy


If true, the changes made actually created a calorie deficit. Like I already said, the strategy is straight forward, but the tactics may not be particularly straight forward.

Calorie number of food items are at best estimates. Calorie estimates for BMR, exercises, etc. are at best rough guidelines. People lie to themselves all the time about how much they actually eat & exercise. Metabolisms (and other body chemistry) varies. Starve yourself and your body will go into starvation mode and/or you'll just burn up muscle tissue lowering your metabolism.

Some people don't digest certain foods very well (depends a lot on genetics and gut flora) and can "get away with" eating those foods without increasing their actual caloric intake (i.e. the intake that becomes biologically available). Sometimes it manifests with negative symptoms (i.e. lactose intolerance) and sometimes it doesn't.

A good example is fiber. There is a great deal of variation in how many calories you actually get from consuming fiber (i've ready anywhere from 1-4 calories/gram depending on your particular body chemistry). Depends a great deal on gut flora which is different from person to person. In addition, food labeling in the U.S. has no standard for dealing with fiber. Some labels include it in the calorie count, some don't. In other words, who the hell knows how many bio available calories are in, for example, bran flakes (answer: no one)

Doesn't change the bottom line though: create a caloric deficit, and you will lose weight. Create a caloric surplus, and you will gain weight.

Create a calorie deficit and you WILL lose weight. Unless you live in a reality distortion field that is.

It's that direct.

Doesn't mean it's easy to do. It can be very difficult to quantify your caloric intake and expenditures to create that deficit, but it is certainly HOW weight loss is done.
