LOSING Weight is all about GAINING!
Gaining momentum and speeding up your metabolism! Below are a few tricks that really help cut the fat and boost your metabolism!
Avoid JUICES!!!-Get your nutrition from calories you chew rather then swallow
Increase Your Fiber!!!- At least 20-30grams a day 4-5 days a week
Increase Healthy Fats- Increase your fish servings(2-4 per week) to get those Omega 3s

Good post. I live by all of these except the salt. Is using sea salt vs. Regular salt really important?-It's not about what you're doing, it's about how you're doing it.

chemically they are identical so it won't really make a difference.. other than trace minerals that are removed in the processing of table salt.. sea salt has all of the trace elements left in it.. Table salt also contains additives to keep it from clumping which Sea salt doesn't.. minor differences, but the they are differences are so minute it wouldn't change anything really.

I am really starting to believe more and more from my own experience that the two keys to the entire operation are as simple as 1. monitoring your total calorie intake and 2. keeping your simple sugar intake as low as possible. I think the focus that a lot of people have on minimizing total carbohydrate intake is misplaced (which is why I'm glad the original poster specified).

Brown Rice instead of white
Whole wheat pasta(so many kinds) instead of regular pasta

i fast 16-18 hours a day . i have been for the past month or two and ive seen some great results. you should give it a try.
heres a couple logs where people are using the same protocol
Schwellington kicks summers ass with a mixture of things,(INC. ANDROHARD UNSPONSORED)
RickRock is finding his abs and making some LEAN GAINS!!
For me, the action IS the juice.

Well, this post is pretty flawed in many ways depending on your take on things...
The whole idea of trying to give "general" weight loss tips and tricks is just impossible. I am on the Metabolic Diet and most of these hints don't apply or would actually make me gain fat rather than lose it.
Also, Salt has not proven do be of any harm during cuts; contrary to popular belief it will not make you retain water. So there isn't any actual "weight loss value" added to not eating salt or replacing it with sea salt for that matter.
But again, perhaps to the regular obese american some of these may prove helpful, but I wouldn't say it applies in many cases.

Well, like I mentioned, it's going to be dependent on what diet you choose to follow;
One main thing that applies to most diets though is: make sure you got your macros right and follow those. Also, try to avoid mixing the macros up, i.e. don't eat carbs in the same meal as you are taking in heavy fat. Don't eat carbs at night either and get plenty of protein.
Because here is the thing, if you're on a high fat diet, for instance, you should be getting as much fat meat as you possibly can, but if you're on a high carb diet it's the other way around and you should be consuming nothing but lean turkey, chicken, tuna etc. I on the other hand, bacon my ass off and that works for me.
Also as pointed out, keep an eye out for calories. The whole cals in < cals out is basically what it boils down to. It is hard to give general advice considering the amount of different diets out there I guess. The main advice would be, stay away from high fructose corn syrup and its derivatives. And don't think that just because it says 0 calories it means it's good for you.

this goes without saying but NO SODA EVER
drinking soda is probably the worst thing you can possibly do
06-13-2011, 02:08 PM
My great grandfather has drank 1-2 cans of diet soda a day for the past 15 years or so -- he's 97, entirely independent, and free of disease and disability. I've worked with at least 6-7 different people (both men and women) who made significant progress with fat loss who consistently drank diet soda and low/no calorie soda variations. They can be extremely advantageous in satisfying sweet cravings during periods where dietary choices are limited or calories are restricted.

Things I would add:
Track your calories- If you don't know exactly how many calories you're getting, how can you manipulate your intake to speed up results? Most people get more calories than they realize. I certainly did before I started tracking everything.
Lift more- Resistance training should be the centerpiece to losing fat. Building muscle allows you to burn more calories through the day.
Be more active- Go for a 45 minute walk in the morning. Go for another walk when you have time. Park farther away. Do active recovery on off days. Anything to keep you moving more.
Start with carbs first- I know so many people who have seen dramatic results by lowering carb intake. If you're stuck in a rut try carb cycling or try to go for a few weeks with around 100 grams or less of carbs. See if this does the trick for you.
Decrease stress- Living stressfully increases cortisol which leads to catabolism and weight gain. Do whatever you have to to decrease stress.
I can probably come up with others, but I gotta go eat...and yes I will be tracking it

The iodine in salt isn't for clumping. It is for iodine deficiency which is very wide-spread, especially in undeveloped countries, and can lead to thyroid problems. It helped to prevent the frequency of Goiter cases (inflamed thyroid), which is not pretty. So just make sure you get your iodine from somewhere.

fasted AM workouts with supersets/dropsets/pre-exhaustion/cardio
keto (extreme measures)
all one really needs to do is cut rest periods/and up the intensity and volume and that can make up for dieting issues
fasting works too- youre not gunna lose muscle.... trust me im a wrestler/trainer
no grains/gluten/wheat/soy/pasta/alcohol/high glycemic foods

Discipline, discipline, and more discipline. Count your calories fellas and count how many you're burning. Don't underestimate intense lifting and add creatine if you need it to help with training intensity.
