You guys getting any results?

Would you say diet is more important than workout? I'm just trying to shave off 10-15 lbs. Insanity or just regular diet/exercise?


Diet is the most the important part of the whole process.. If u arent eating how you are suppose to then u arent good to see the best results.. If u are lifting weights, doing cardio but eating pizza, donuts, fast food all the time there is no point.. You eat right, you workout and you will see the results.. Also i will post my results on friday morning of the past 4 months from going from 200 down to whatever i weigh in at tomorrow...

i feel diet is far more important than the workout

stick to protein and good fats, no carbs aside from postworkout meal


Pootie i hope u arent doing this? U need more my grams of carbs than you do protein.. U have to eat the good carbs throughout the day.. Its essential of good nutrition..

Can't really sit down and go through 60+ pages so i'm not sure if it's been asked before but fuck it here goes...

First, my situation; Right now I'm on a 1400 calorie a day diet. My maintenance taking into account my height, weight and activity is 2,200 so as you can see i'm trying to cut weight. On workout days I usually burn from 600-1000 calories at a time and usually do it 5-6 times a week.

The question is, do you guys eat back the calories you burn? On the internet I always see it from two sides. Some say to eat the calories b/c if you don't, you'll be in an extreme caloric deficit and your body will go into starvation mode and others say you shouldn't because it would just cancel out your workouts.

What's your thoughts on this fellow hbers?

^ Just something to look at, to burn a pound of fat u need to be 3500 calories under your normal weekly intake at the end of the week.. So u are at 2200 a day which for the week u need 15,400 calories and in order to lose pound u gotta be at 11,900.. But then again a good heathly diet is around 1800 calories a day.. As long as u are eating that amount, u can burn as many calories as u want and u will lose weight the healthy way.. But also remember if u are lifting weights, u are burning calories but also gaining muscle is weighs more than fat...

Aight cool, yea sometimes I do feel like I'm eating too much just for the sake of eating back those calories. But looking back at my logs I almost never go over 1,800. Guess i'll just boost my limit around there then.

no way man, but that's because i'm trying to add some size. eliminating carbs (aside from post workout and maybe breakfast) helps if you're trying to lose weight and cut.

tried my homebrew jack3d for 90 days, didn't notice any results other than terrible caffiene withdrawals in the end :/. (5g Beta Alanine, 5g Creatine Monohydrate, 50mg 1,3 dimethyalamime, 200mg Caffiene).

So it's been 4 months since I started taking fitness seriously and doing my whole transformation.. I said I would post my results and everything like that, so here it is... So I shot up to 204 from about 178-180 in acourse of a year.. Basically got in a contract issue with my gym(muay Thai and JJ), started working alot, ate like shit, moved to New York for a couple months in the winter which I basically ordered food everyday cause it was to cold to go anywhere.. So I moved back to California and started to read up on fitness and dieting.. About a month in of doing some strength & conditioning plus changing my diet completely I started dropping weight.. But then I started really getting into it, reading articles about everything, finding a lean muscle program and here I am now .. Hahaha so here are the results in just 4 months but also I'm not done yet.. Haha

Beginning weight: 204
Weight now: 177

Starting body fat: around 18%
BF now: around 12%

Supplements i used: ON gold standard whey, BCAA, cla, multi vitamin, omega 3...

Every advice on dieting that i give is exactly what I was eating exception of meat cause I don't eat it.. But everything else is right on with what foods to eat.. But I'm going to try and drop 4 more pounds to 173 then I'm going to bulk up about 10 pounds of muscle then cut my BF to about 8% and be at 178 all said & done...

^ My ♥♥♥♥♥. Proud of everybody who's making progress.

I weigh myself on the scale every morning and I'm just glad I'm consistently losing weight (IDGAF if it's water weight).

Syntha 6 is very tasty, Vanilla is pretty good but the protein itself sucks. The servings are weak and it takes a while for it to reach your muscle.

ON Whey all day. The strawberry is pretty decent. Chug that shit down in seconds without much difficulty.

Word. What you said isn't an excuse D. I juggled working and summer class to go to the gym and work out. Mind you it was a medical terminology class so it was hard as fuck. I'm also pretty fucking lazy, but I forced myself to go to the gym. Must do can do.

I like vegetables and eat a lot of fruit and drink a lot of non-sugary fruit juices, but what are some other foods for "eating right"? Like I know the basics like grilled chicken and what not, but if I can't be getting grilled pollo every day what should I try and aim for? My main things for snacking are carrots and plain cheerios.

fuck juice. drink water. like a gallon a day. no joke.

ground turkey also works, using it as a substitute for ground beef for things like tacos, pasta, burgers, etc. turkey is actually even better for you than chicken.

are you working out at all? if so what're your goals? that has a pretty big effect on what you should be eating, but i would say keep eating the fruits and veggies as well as cheerios, and also try throwing almonds in.

Yeah I drink a lot of water but juice with my meals but probably not yet a gallon lol. I work out weekdays for an hour and a half different body part every day and run at least a 5k every weeknight usually 4-6 miles depending on how I'm feeling/sore I am. Started at 115 lbs and weighed myself earlier today and I'm at 128 and I definitely see more definition so I guess I'm on track. Gonna keep doing what I'm doing and try and reach 140-145 sometime within the next couple months just trying to build some muscle.

wheatbread, oatmeal, bananas, chicken, peanut butter, milk, broccoli, whey protein, brown rice, and lentils
if you eat pretty damn good then you can add a protein bar I like clif bodybuilder bars

lentils for cheap proteinsmokeyface always pair with something whole wheat.

I'll post this one more time, a simple list of what you should eat and buy when shopping or ask your parents to get:

Lean Proteins:
Fish
Chicken
Turkey
Beans
You can occasionally have lean cuts of Red Meat.

Complex Carbs:
Brown Rice
Whole Oats
Beans
Sweet Potatoes
Whole Wheat Pasta

Vegetables:
Broccoli
Spinach
Asparagus
Peppers
Tomatoes

Fruit:
Apples
Berries
Grapefruit

Fats:
Olive Oil
Flaxseed Oil
Avocado
Nuts
natural peanut butter
Fish

If u are looking to Bulk up in size just eat bigger portions, if u are trying to lose weight eat less portions.. But always keep in mind u should be eating 5-6 times a day.. U will feel much healthier just eating this stuff, trust me! Also grab some good supplements if you want but always have some sort of Whey protein shake, a multi vitamin and omega 3 vitamin... Also can use BCAA, Creatine, Glutamine, CLA, L-Carnitine.. Those have been studied ALOT and have proven to work.. Throw in a good workout routine for whatever you are trying to achieve and you will get results..
