  • Definitely managed to put on weight despite all the riding. I blame the deliciousness of Ice cream. Last night there was this Ice cream shop that made a bowl out of a sweet pretzel and put 2 american sized scoops of ice cream in it. And then some whipped cream. And then some toppings. And then some fudge sauce. Naturally I ate it all and when they said it was for 2 people I laughed. Srsly though- if you ever find yourself in Bethlehem, PA, you need to track down this ice cream place.

  • bananas for breakfast lunch and dinner.

  • Terrible week for me, if I'm under 74 tomorrow morning I'll be ok with that, out for dinner and 3 days of out of office all day meetings meant I trained 3 times instead of a normal 7 or 8, eating went to shit, I drank too much and I didn't even have my commute to burn a few calories each day as I was in the car!

  • Just broken my kneecap. Going to see how much I can starve myself during recovery.

  • So, (while sober!) I entered a bet with a friend to see who could get in the "best" shape within 6 weeks. I'm not massively over weight, but it's really easy to over-do portions here in the US. Currently at 86kg with 36inch waist. Don't overly care about the weight, but need to get that waist down to sub 32inch. Only one thing for it, Ketosis and more exercise :)

  • oh and no beer. bah. although rumour has it whiskey is still ok

  • Just broken my kneecap. Going to see how much I can starve myself during recovery.

    Ouch. Good luck. The temptation to eat everything in sight out of boredom must be a strong one. What happened?

  • I'm wincing just thinking about it, I hope your knee heals up fast and well.

  • Here's the real fucking fail. Fell off some scaffolding I'd climbed up, pissed. Climbed it many times before, this time a fixing came loose, bar rotated, I decked it from about 6m, walked on it for about 10 mins, which then became as assisted hobble. Woke up at 7.30 unable to move it, called amberlamps.

    6 weeks minimum with a full leg cast. I am a bellend. I'm also missing about 3k of work and I'm not insured (insurance guy even came round the other day but I couldn't afford it at the time).

    WINNER!

    All in all I deserve no sympathy because I'm a bellend.

    Edit: gonna get well buff shoulders from using crutches though.

  • ^ouch. Heal up quick.

    I have put on 7lbs this week down to the bloody painkillers I have been prescribed. Nothing in the leaflet about weight gain, but everything on google says 'rapid weight gain'. Plus Ive been injected with some sort of Steroids for the past four years. ( I've got one more steroid injection next week and that should be me last.) On top of the weight I still haven't lost from the beta blockers I was on quite a while back, I am now an extra cuddly Shoosh. (Or more of a Shooshana than a Shoosh).

    I'm back on my exercise regime tomorrow regardless of pain. Aim is to keep the calorie intake at 1500-1800 per day (and 30g-50g fat) and the exercise output 1000 calories plus. (Cycling, gym, walking, aqua aerobics, Pilates). Tough, but I've got to do something before it gets any worse. I will have 5-7 days to recover from my injection then will add in Bikram yoga to my schedule for a month. My aim is to shift 10lbs in 5 weeks.

  • If by steroids you mean corticosteroids, like for inflammation. Then indeed a terrible thing to put in your body. Basically stress hormones, makes your body store fat and lose muscle tissue.

    For a woman of average size, that calorie count may not be enough to drop fat. Depends of course. May I ask why you are pre-allocating a quantity of fat? Surely it does not matter how much fat you take in as long as it doesn't push you over you calorie quota?

    I personally suggest for all people, just eat clean and your body will sort itself out. Very difficult to be fat if you are eating sensible foods, not matter how much of eat you eat. Meat, Vegetables and treat calorie dense carb sources as treats, not staples.

    If someone is less concerned about body composition/health and just wants the scale to drop. Reliance on Fruit and Coffee (and little else) is great.

    Somehow I'm 72.8 this morning!

    In fairness id been too scared to get on the scales since thursday so my weight could have been anything this morning, Reckon if I'm back to my usual standards I'll make this stick and hopefully a few days off will give me refreshed motivation!

  • 82.6 this morning... still lost weight but not as much as I should. It was down to a lax week with plenty of cycling but also a couple of client lunches. None in the diary this week so time to make it up.

    Yes, it's only a small dose, but its a form of corticosteroid. Up until recently the benefits have outweighed the risks.

    The reason for restricting fat content too is that my body doesn't process fats efficiently. I am hoping with a huge boost of vitamin b2 daily this might change, but in the past the most successful way for me to lose weight has been to watch my fat intake as well as calories.

    The calorie count should be enough to drop fat and lose it long term providing my calorie output in exercise is 1000+ at least four days a week.

  • My body doesn't process fats well at all either. Without getting too graphic, most of the fat I consume comes straight back out. But surely this is more reason to indulge? My body (just like everyones I guess) processes carbs extremely well. Have to both be careful on timing and quantity for it not to zap energy and cause weight gain. So I eat them when I need them, not in the "low carb" camp but sensible quantities and times. Much more when I am more active and drop it lower when having lazy few days. Some meals with none.

    Fat however, I really take the piss and chug down. I really wish my body would process it as I prefer it as an energy source (does not make me feel tired etc). I pile on butter, hard cheese, soft cheese, olive oil to everything. Also fatty cuts of meat.

    Has no effect I am the skinniest now I have been for a long time and I literally exhaust myself eating.

  • Been on holiday all last week eating Pizza like it's going out of fashion- 78.4kg this morning.

    Eheu!

    I've had my gall bladder removed. They say it makes no difference but oh yes it does. Makes a difference to the way my body handles everything, including alcohol.

  • 82.1 this morning. 0.1 down on the end of last week. hmmm.

    Still it's progress, going well. I've fell of the wagon a couple (few) times but write that off and start again the next day.

    Distinct lack of booze in my diet this week too - only had a whisky last night when getting a little annoyed on the computer.

    Protein shakes have arrived. Even though I'm running at a calorie deficit should I be taking these in place of a meal? For example having one instead of breakfast - or go out for a run, lift some weights then take one before dinner?

  • The gallbladder helps with digestion fat, therefore if you loose it you cant digest the fat. The logic in my mind follows that the you could eat more fat without it increasing body fat as your body can't process it.

    However, some people who have had their gallbladder removed have reported symptoms of bloating and diarrhoea after eating fatty or spicy food. If certain foods do trigger symptoms, you may wish to avoid them in the future.

    Its simple carbs that make me fat, fat that increases my cholesterol, and protein that bungs me up.

    I'm sure that it is not the fat in my diet that makes me fat.

  • ^by not processing fats, or breaking them down properly, this usually means that you store more fat, rather than it being processed at all.

  • I would have thought it means that the fat passed through your digestive system and out the other end. Hence the bowl issues mentioned above.

  • You have to process it in order to store it. It might result in not feeling too great as mentioned about but you will be less efficient at breaking it down and therefore absobing it at all.

  • ^by not processing fats, or breaking them down properly, this usually means that you store more fat, rather than it being processed at all.
    That's not quite what happens though, is it? If dietary fat is not "processed", you just crap it out.

    Orlistat, for example, prevents the processing of dietary fats. And makes you shit grease.

  • Heh, a friend worked with a lady on that- she had to wear a nappy 24/7.
