Yeah good point, I take back my snarky replies.
Good luck! I would post suggestions, but every single body is different, so you got to find what works best for you. Ive gone with the simple eat less and exercise more, and that works for me. I had a goal to lose 40-50 pounds this year, and so far have only lost about 20-25. Ive had a couple of plateaus in there, but I haven't gained any back so thats good. Just be patient with yourself and you will get there! Ill be using your progress as motivation for me to get to the rest of my goal.
I would argue eating less may not be the solution anyway. It will be eating differently IMO. People are correcting and reversing Type 2 with certain changes in their diets .
Have you tried water work outs at all? Could be a little less stress on the ailing body parts, although previously having torn my medial meniscus I understand the annoyance and pain that come with knee issues.
Go see the doctor with the injuries and tell him/her you are serious about an exercise plan. If the answer is you can't run, ask about rowing or cycling. If you can't row or cycle, ask about swimming. Don't take no for an answer. If you get that answer tell the doctor what you told us about being on the road to an early death.
There is a good chance that the knee pain is from compensating for the bad foot. Get them both looked at!
Wanna do the diet part with me until you’re healed and healthy enough to go to the gym?
Best of luck to the OP, I hope this journey goes well for you.
Thanks for posting - I need a good kick in the butt myself and your post provided it. I’m not very overweight, if overweight at all, but I generally don’t feel that great and am tired all the time. I’ve been checked out for heart-related issues, sleep-apnea, and a number of other health problems and they can’t pinpoint the issue. I’ve been told to improve my diet and exercise more but I haven’t found the motivation to do either. Like you, I don’t want to go through life “like this” and need to make a change.
Thanks again for your post.
I'd advise some sort of calorie counting. It's helped me quite a bit and helped me understand why I'm failing at times too. Even if it's just to do for a little while to get an idea how many calories per day/week you're eating now, and how you need to change it to fit your goals.
Running has helped my back, knees, and hips quite a bit. I started with a couch to 5k, I think it was a 3 month buildup. Had some injury setbacks but eventually got there.
Everyone has something different that works for them, it's really just finding something you can stick with. Good luck, it'll be hard as hell but worth it.
It's the difference between diet and dieting. Lot of mixing and matching the two.
And portions. JFC, I'd swear the food industry and restaurants WANT to kill us all. Not sure of their motivation but damn. The only time I see proportions that I think are reasonable is at higher end expensive restaurants. I go out with a couple on occasion to dine and we are all pretty lean by USA standards. If we get a dessert it's usually a three way split for a single item.
I lost 70 lbs doing intermittent fasting and Keto, be well my friend, and good luck
Good luck. I would try and start sooner if possible. It’s a full lifestyle change. I am a marathon and tuck racer. If ya need any tips hit me up.
Ive done Hammer and Chisel a couple times and the difference as far as hunger between that and say, Insanity, was astounding.
I've done this before. Got up to about the same as you, dropped 50, felt great, had it figured out, then just fell off the wagon. So, I'll try again. I'll match your exact proposition. Let's do this.
I'll echo what others have said about going to see a doctor. Both my father (quit running marathons, didn't quit eating like it) and my wife (pregnancy/gestational diabetes) went to nutritionists to get diet plans.
Good luck to you. This is a tough time of year to commit to losing weight and getting healthier with the big holidays coming up, but it sounds like you have the right attitude. Stay with it, and I hope you start seeing results soon.
The app is a nice tool to have. I wouldn't necessarily treat what it says as gospel but it does give you pretty handy and accessible means of checking your daily calorie intake and burn. Just remember - garbage in, garbage out. If you're not honest with yourself then any fitness app is just going to show you what you want to see.
i have the same problem
i dont get full
i can eat and eat and eat and not get full
but ill get a stomach ache an hour or so afterward if its something like a pbj or something
but im not fat at all, obviously because of some genetic disposition
i am currently in the process of cutting out wheat; coffee and sugar
but i think it is something with the endocannabinoid production in your body
because before i was messing with my ecs system i never had the problem
but now that i have messed with it not sure how to undo without losing some of the good effects that i gained by messing with my ecs system
You probably picked the toughest time of year to do this but good luck to you dude. I went through something a little like you right after I graduated college. Was up to about 260 from 200, mostly thanks to the college lifestyle (booze, fast food). Like others have said, a diet won't do you any good without some lifestyle changes. I really didn't diet, just managed portions and calories while essentially eating what I wanted, plus consistent exercise. I didn't work out like crazy just always stuck to 2 or 3 things that I knew I could do everyday and that i knew I could maintain after I reached my goal weight.
I wasn't looking at getting results as fast as you were but after around 18 months, I was back around 205. Several years later, I've settled in between 215-220. I've put a little bit of the weight back on but its been over a decade and while I'm heavier, I'm much healthier. Good luck again, I hope you get the results you are looking for.
You've got nothing to lose taking 60 days and going off sugar and carbs and seeing what happens. If you're looking for a good book, try Gary Taubes Why We Get Fat.
That's another issue. My previous doctor who I wasn't thrilled with is retired so I'm in search of a new one. I know the doctors that associate with the iowa state sports teams are through McFarland clinic. I wonder if they take on regular patients. Anyone on here that is in Ames have good recommendations regarding physicians in Ames?
Start slow and work your way into it otherwise you'll probably burn yourself out and be unhappy.
