Emerald17's Journal, 24 June 2015

Not doing well as far as weight is concerned. I'm back in the 130s and I seem to be stuck here. :( Skipped Monday's workout. But I worked out on Tuesday and today. I'm not sure what else to take out of my diet. yesterday was my anniversary, and DH grilled steaks, ribs, and sausage. I ate half a large steak and one pork rib with some potato salad. I've been trying to stay away from carbs, but with the party we went to on Saturday, being out of town again on Sunday, and our Anniversary yesterday, I didn't do as well. Do I need to cut out carbs completely? I thought with the extra protein, I'd be ok....but apparently I have A LOT to learn still, as far as food management, working out, and nutrition in general. Could use some pointers and suggestions. Wish I could afford to continue on the Visalus shakes. Those seemed to help me a lot. Plus, after 2-3 days of replacing two meals a day, the shake really helped curb my appetite. It's just so expensive though.... I tried green smoothies...but I get tired of them. Plus, I hate how the liquid separates if you don't drink it fast enough. I don't have a juicer....just a blender. So this whole thing is frustrating me. :(

No they say u can eat the things u want all u need to be is a caloric deficit meaning u have to eat 300-500 calories less than what ur suppose to be eating man and you'll loose it man

I highly recommend counting your calories, and I mean every single calorie goes in your mouth at least for a few days until you get back on track. You will probably be surprised at how many you're consuming. I know this from experience. I agree that you must have a calorie deficit at the end of the day (meaning that your burned calories must be higher than your intake); however, I disagree that where the calories come from doesn't matter. Most foods and drinks are ok in moderation, but you can't out run a bad diet.

Calorie count is helpful - however, when you do low carb, you also want to moderate the protein because in the end protein you do not use for energy is metabolized by the liver in to glucose and stored as farm too, like carbs. So you may want a low carb, moderate protein, high healthy fat program to see of that reduces your body's dependence on sugars/carbs and turns it to burning fat instead.

Just count calories. It doesn't matter where they come from, fat, protien or carbs. Maintain a caloric defecit and you will loose the weight. When you start building muscle, then you will want to work on your protien, carb, fat ratio.

I guess 'loose' works too. Lol

http://www.aworkoutroutine.com/how-to-lose-fat/ Several studies are referenced in this article which show people eating ALL carbs, protien or fat while maintaining a caloric defecit and losing weight equally.

I log every single thing I eat. If I can't find it I will find something similar and wing it. I also try to log my exercise down to washing dishes and sleep. I try to eat 500-700 less than my FS calculated RDI. (2500) At the end of the day i like the difference between the two to be 700 or more. It's a pain to log everything sometimes but it really has helped me. To be honest, I haven't started to eat much healthier but I do have more portion control because of the logging and calorie counting. I've also cut all food and water out after 8pm. Good luck
