hi guys :unsure:


Ok so around october I decided to well, not be a [kitty]. Instead of hating being fat while eating a big mac (ok, so that wasn't me... Still it reminded me of in the nutty professor. Hah. too funny...) so I just started what I call the Common Sense diet. I greatly decreased my soda intake, greatly reduced my fast food intake, and started exercising. I've lost about 50 lbs in about 4 months, which even though that's pretty pitiful (10lbs a month...) some months I ate a lot of junk food. Anyways, this is currently my exercise routine:

Run 1.5 miles a day
80 reverse crunches
30 pushups
and 90 dumbbell curls. (15 lbs dumbells each)

Anyways, what I do is I run the whole 1.5 miles a day at once ofc. But someone said it was good to spread exercise out... so I do 40 reverse crunches, 15 pushups, and 45 dumbell curls in the morning, and all those + 1.5 miles at night. And I'm just not losing weight anymore. Which is kind of aggravating since I thought I'd have lost more weight by the summer. Anyways, I digress:

Is that an efficient way to do it? (Splitting up the exercises instead of doing at once) And what are some easy moves to do with dumbbells besides curling? Hah I have *no* money for gym memberships, and the 15 lbs ones are the only in the house... I really want to broaden my exercises, but am not really sure how. I bought the ifitness for my itouch, and that helps but can get pretty confusing.

Anyways;
I'm allergic to about 35 different foods (somewhere around 35 cbf to remember them all.) and they are mainly the reason I'm overweight, because when I eat them the body stores them. Yea I don't understand it either, all I know is the doctor was a specialist in my condition (Candidasis)so ye. And around Feb 17 or so I decided to stop eating all my allergy foods, and so I bascially ate the atkins diet on steroids (I'm allergic to wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs etc.) and lost a crap load of weight. However, the food I was eating was organic and VERY expensive. Holy [cabbage] it was expensive. I mean I noticed I exercised easier and faster, and I didn't have this *dead look* on my face like I usually do... But it was so damn expensive, that after a month I quit it. And even though I'm losing weight still, I've basically plateau'd. Which is depressing XD.

Anyways, I got a new job in an office, with a nice dating prospect who's shown interest, so naturally I kinda want to kick this into overdrive L. Which brings me to part II of the post. Are there any *healthy* microwaveable meals out there? For dinner I currently eat the Lean Cuisine Chicken Parmesan (freakin amazing :thumbup: )some carrots, an apple and some pretzels. But I looked and whatddya know, the meal is packed with sodium. Kinda shoulda seen that coming. I would really prefer a nice healthy cheap food, as no [cabbage], I LOVE organic healthy foods, and I *hate* fried/fast foods. But they are so damn cheap. And Now that I found out I can't get federal aid for college because my dad makes $65,000 a year I really have to cut down on expenses. I've tried that whole Amy's line of organic foods, and those are gross. heh. But I'm open to any suggestions.

Ok if all my rambling on/run on sentences have left you shaken, let me summarize:

Quick easy ways to broaden my exercising at home

Cheap healthy *yummy* organic food, these microwaveable foods aren't cutting it.

I'm afraid I don't know of any off-hand...

But let me say one thing, I'm pretty sure losing 10lbs a month is pretty good. Yeah, you may want to lose more, but losing more weight in a short amount of time can be quit unhealthy. And, um, do you do sit-ups?

I read somewhere reverse situps were like a billion more times effective. I also do about 20 twisting crunches that were the obliques, but I do those crazy randomly, so I decided to not put them there.

I lost a lot of weight simply by cutting soft-drinks out of my usual intake, and power walking 4-10km at 6%-12% incline on the treadmil every second day.
Also, excersise bikes are excellent for building up lower body strength (developed muscles burn fat faster/more efficiently just to operate, and your legs have some of the biggest muscles in the body)

Yea. I love bycling, I might save up for a rec center membership solely for that, but at the moment I'm living off of lean cuisines that I buy w/ my mom's visa, and food I can rummage for the house. I was going to buy an outdoor bike, but I'm tall (6'3") and so getting one for tall people cheap is hard L.

There's really no such thing as a "tall person" bike, unless you're something like 7'. I'm 6'3" as well, and a regular bike works perfectly fine for me. Just adjust the seat, on some bikes you can probably adjust the handle bars as well. One thing I can suggest is just to start increasing you physical activity; start doing sprints and more physically demanding activities, go to a public pool and swim there.

Also, if we know what exactly you're allergic to, we can help you find foods that you can eat. Although if you really want good diet advice, I'd suggest trying to go to your doctor.

There's no such thing as regret. A regret means you are unhappy with the person you are now,
and if you're unhappy with the person you are, you change yourself. That
regret will no longer be a regret, because it will help to form the new,
better you. So really, a regret isn't a regret.
It's experience.

Don't have any advice to post, but damn this guy is right. 50lbs in 4 months is a lot of lost weight. And IIRC, the first x pounds are easiest to lose, and then the weight loss slows down. So don't panic.

What were your starting/current height and weight though?

I'm sorry to tell you this, but I will tell you what your doctors probably didn't.

I'm betting your condition came from eating processed foods. The food industry injects our "food" with various preservatives, artificial sweeteners, artificial colors....plenty of other chemicals. This stuff is killing us.

Go back to your organic diet. It might seem expensive, but obviously your body responds great to it. Or, you could pick the "cheap" food, which will continue to detriment your health. In the long run, you're gonna end up paying even more due to medical problems in the future. Organic food is cheap, considering that it is saving your life.

Think of it this way. Anything that isn't organic is just a product. It is a product being sold by a company that wants to make as much money as possible. They give you the cheapest stuff possible and then jack up the price as much as possible.

Organic food is food, not a product. They give you good, wholesome, nutritious food that will help your body become healthier.

Preservatives were invented to save money for companies, not to feed your body.

Don't eat chemicals. Eat food.

Wow that sucks..But honestly if you are on a budget, pre-cooked frozen meals seem like a really expensive thing to do. Especially lean cuisine. You could save a lot of money by making your own meals in advance and then microwaving them at lunch. Plus you could avoid some perservatives which surely will not help your sensitive system.

Could you clarify something for me though?

You say you have allergies to tomato, and dairy.

But you say you like Lean Cuisine Chiken Parmesean. Is there some foods you need to avoid more than others? Chicken parm has tomato and cheese.

First off, the reason why my above post was so garbled was because I was writing on my fail phone. It has the weirdest grammar rules..


Anyways, the only reason I do Lean Cuisines is because my mom said she'd pay for them XD. But anyways I'm not following my *allergy* diet at all atm, and at my supermarket literally the only ones they have are chicken Parmesan, this weird stuffed dish, chicken, rice, carrots and peas stir fry,(which is what I had tonight) and pizza. Heh You should see what my coworkers eat. [cabbage]. Like triple whoppers with cheese and those funnel cake things. Eww. Cheese on burgers is gross. As is mayo (in general)


And yea on my old diet I still worked at my old job at a restaurant, so I could get the food there for free that was healthy, and on my *allergy* diet. However now that food is like $10 a meal. So thats a no-go.

If you wanna talk cheap, healthy eating...it doesn't get much better than fruits and vegetables. Bananas are 69 cents per pound. Apples are usually around a dollar per pound. Other high value produce includes potatoes, corn, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, carrots, cucumbers, and celery. I'm sure theres also plenty of stuff I forgot to include too.

If you want to start bringing these things to work, one thing you are going to need is plenty of good tupperware containers. These will help you take fast and easy meals on the go.

For example, my Sunday nights are usually spent peeling, cutting, cooking, and packing my meals for the next 5 days. I am busy during the week, and I know that if I don't have my healthy foods ready to go, I might have no time to cook and end up buying a fast food meal..

So I cube up 1 or 2 canteloupes, 10 stalks of celery, slice up about 5 apples (toss them in some lemon juice so they dont brown), etc. You can also do things like hard boil eggs in advance. I also like to make some type of chicken or tuna salad and keep that in a tupperware container. Then, I will take the tuna salad and either eat it plain, eat it with some celery, or put it on a sandwich. I even make entrees in advance, like grilled chicken breast.

I love sweet potatoes. On sunday I bake 5 sweet potatos in the oven, and then wrap them in plastic wrap and keep them in the fridge for the week.

So if you wanted to have a healthy lunch ready for work, you could prepare these things on Sunday and then they would be ready to grab out of the fridge on any morning. You could wake up, and grab your grilled chicken out of the fridge, and grab a vegetable to go with it. Then just put it in the fridge at work and you are good to go.

Before you start an organic food diet, watch the episode of penn and teller: [cabbage] about organic food.

Eating healthy on the cheap is easy. Oats and fruit or an omelette for breakfast, nuts for snacks. Brown rice and tuna for lunch with fruit and raw vegetables.

I kind of did the same thing. I put on about 10 pounds freshman year of college and I decided to eat a little healthier this summer. I lost about 15 pounds(now I only weigh 150, so I need to bulk up some, I went from being pudgy to being scrawny, but I'll worry about that when I get back to college and have gym access. I basically cut out soft drinks(I have like one a week maybe), and tried to get something healthier when I go get lunch after work. I was running for about 2 months, but I got my wisdom teeth off and had to take a week off and haven't started back. But I haven't put on any weight since I quit running, and it doesn't really bug me because I don't want to lose any more.

Wow, my girlfriend has almost identical allergies. I can attest to the fact that it's really hard to eat according to those, and a lot of organic food is really expensive.

In terms of "tasty organic food, soy food etc" you really just need to hunt around, trying different things. A lot of that stuff is great for you health wise, but tastes like crap. Occasionally we will wander onto something decent tasting though.

EDIT: I don't know about your allergies, but she definitely has "degrees" here. For example a lot of the stuff will just make her feel mildly ill (upset stomach) whereas if she eats dairy she gets really sick.

If you want to burn fat, you have to exercise for longer, not harder. Sprints, weights, and sit-ups will not burn fat but will instead tone your body. Keep doing those and increase the amount of time (not necessarily the difficulty) you are running, walking, cycling, or whatever.

Uh pretty sure that the exercise longer and not harder part is wrong. Free weights will achieve weight loss too, as long as you know how much to eat
