    Fellow Fat Asses: This One is Working for Me

    My buddy's wife is using the "Take Shape for Life" Diet and it's not cheap. But he's been feeding me insights into it and I've been dropping lbs and noticeably right away.


    1. Go to Wal-Mart and fill your cart on the Fiber One Baked bars. Get whatever flavor suits your fancy, just stock up.

    2. Same section-do the same with the "Fiber One" snacks. (Trust me)

    3. Go to pharmacy section and load up on the "Pure Protein" items.

    I recommend the Almond Milk as well

    Breakfast: Either Cheerios with the Almond Milk and one sweetener such as Splenda or 2 hard boiled eggs

    Then, every hour and a half, eat one of these "fuels" (bars mentioned above) at the office.

    They taste good too btw

    Most of these "fuels" are 95 ca

    I mean, realistically? There’s not much you can do besides cut back and go full dad bod. Lifting weights at a deficit is hard as fuck as it is, you add in age and the wear and tear from being an athlete when you were younger, and you’re kinda stuck. Maybe talk to a trainer?

    I suppose I understand that. I don’t know how tall you are, but assuming you’re relatively average height, 250+ is pretty damn big. If I had to guess, he wanted you to take extreme measures in the short term because you had some health risks. I won’t disagree with a doctor for obvious reasons, but I don’t think he’d disagree with my advice either now that you’re down to a reasonable size.

Most people need to address their nutrition which is both what they are eating and the quantity they are eating. I know people who eat things that are not good for them but justify it by saying they went to the gym or worked out. Then they wonder why they are not getting healthier and get discouraged.

    Ideally I would like to get with a nutritionist and have them work out how much calories etc. I would just do that and have the occasional cheat day.

    Also, congratulations on the weight loss TTU, I hope you’re still doing well. I didn’t mean to come off as an asshole, but what you did is very extreme and far more likely to discourage people than help them. Props to you for having willpower, but yeah dude, that’s not the best way to go about it.

    Oh, and one more thing: Sleep at least 8 hours in a dark room every night. No screens, no distractions, just you, your bed, and your hand to keep you company. If you’re starting a new routine, kick that up to 9 hours a night for the first month or two while your body adjusts.

    If you want to lose weight. Clean up your diet and drink only water. Eat around 1,200 calories and work out. Diet is actually the primary thing count your calories.

    March 16 2017 - I was like 259.8lbs then I decided to lose weight. Just slowly taking away things from my diet. Started to only drink water. Gave up ordering mac and cheese etc.

    March 2018 - I was at 234lbs. My doctor said my cholesterol was a little high. Gave up eggs, high cholesterol foods, and only a serving spoonful of carbs. Started to eat things like grilled salmon. Started to actually count calories and keep myself in the 1,200 to 1,500 range. Started to work out 3-4 times a week.

    Feb 2019 - Weighed in at 181lbs at my doctor's office and he told me I have to maintain this now but I could stop dieting. Went off the reservation for the weekend because I had not cheated on the diet for weeks. But now I can lift weights again and don't only have to do cardio.
    No adult male that isn’t a midget should be eating 1200 calories a day, ever. Seriously guys, do not fucking do this, it’s bad for your health. What you should be doing is eating a lot of protein (red meat for dinner 2-3 times a week preferably), fruits, and vegetables. Limit but don’t necessarily eliminate your intake of the following: bread, pasta, and processed food of all kinds. I say limit and not eliminate because carbs can be good on recovery days. Only drinking water and black coffee with the occasional exception should be a no brainer. Always lift weights, but don’t go too heavy and fuck yourself up like a moron. Cardio three times a week. Congratulations, you’re now something resembling the absolute bad ass that I am.

    Seriously though, jokes aside, make sure you eat enough if you’re exercising. Cutting your intake down too much fucks with your sleep, muscle recovery, cognitive function, sex drive, basically everything. If you’re anything like 99% of the population, how MUCH you eat isn’t the problem, it’s your inactivity and WHAT you’re eating that’s killing you.
