What's your best way to lose weight?

Page 3 of 8 First 12345 ... Last

  1. These are some great suggestions I will be using them all during my training period. I plan on doing
    HIIT training at least 3 days per week as well as weight lifting 5 days per week this will kickstart
    my metabolism. I also plan to eat at least 5 times a day and really eat clean.

    Sounds like a good plan! Are you trying to lose the weight by a certain date??

    Cardio/weightlifting do not affect metabolic rate to any significant degree.Portion size and total calories is far more important than food choices (aka eating "clean").

  4. Didn't know that mr. cooper thanks for the advice and yes Miss Q I am trying to lose the weight before the summer comes in.
    I want to look my best last summer I had an 8 pack and I want to get that back! I know I can do it it will take some hard work
    and discipline for sure but it will come I know it will. Just gotta put in the work

    So....you saying cardio/weightlifting is not important and neither is eating clean??? Confused

  6. Drinking a glass of warm water with lemon and honey as soon as you wake up in the morning (after ), raises your metabolic level significantly. Water has significant health benefits. Through the night, your body is deprived of water, and since most of your body processes use water as a medium, your body’s machinery slows down through the night. When you drink water in the morning, it helps to rev the machinery back into gear, so it kicks up the metabolic rate. U could also press the acupuncture point below your nose and above the upper lip to increase metabolism rate. The lemon has Vitamin C, and honey has its health benefits , since they add vitamins, minerals, and flavor. So, assuming that your diet , exercise and activity level is the same, and you start drinking lemon water as soon as you wake up, it will increase your metabolic level. With an increase in your metabolic level, your body will burn more calories for the same activity.
    also alternate days 15-20 mins in sauna can help you burn those xtra pounds

    I belive he's saying that cardio and weights will not directly increase metabolism straight after a workout (i.e. create an 'afterburn') but this is intensity dependant. But your typical weight session and cardio (LISS) will not stimulate the afterburn effect.

    It has been said that the compostition of calories (whether 3,000kcals from brown rice or 3,000kcals from big macs) are not important in the grand scheme as both equate too 3,000kcals, and if this causes you to go over your TDEE, then weight gain will occur regardless of how 'clean' you eat. In weight loss cases its more important to monitor TOTAL calories as this will determine the amount of weight lost.

    Eating 'clean' is important just to meet your micronutrient goals but will not in effect be the sole reason for weight loss, you will still have to monitor total calorie intake

    I'm gonna go right ahead and call this one out. There's really no scientific background that would suggest Lemon + Honey will raise your metabolism in the morning, let alone pressing below your nose and upper lip; if that was the case I would walk around all day with my finger under my nose or develop something to be worn there and make millions.

  9. Drinking Water May Speed Weight Loss, on webmd (still can't post links)

    Yes, it's an article and not a stand alone, peer reviewed study. Yes, it is an article discussing the findings of referenced peer reviewed studies that can be researched independently should a reader so desire.

    As I interpreted the post, water was suggested as the metabolic stimulant, the honey and lemon for additional health benefits.


    Regarding lemon juice, as it is acidic, it stabilizes your blood sugar level, facilitating an environment conducive to weight loss.

    Drinking adequate levels of water, and spiking it with lemon juice, is conducive to weight loss but it is not a magic bullet.

    Essentially, you can't out train a sh!*ty diet.

    Yes, I understand that Jiigzz, thank you.

    Here's the thing though (not directed at you) I have gone from being very overweight to 4 weeks out from competing, never once counting my calories/macros or any of that other stuff and did just fine. I ate clean, left carbs out at night, and worked my ass off in the gym. If I'm going to diet then I'm certainly not going to sit around eating burgers and fries because it's in my macros. I would look like crap and feel like crap.

    Telling someone that wants to lose weight that it doesn't matter if they go to the gym or eat clean is ridiculous. Seems like a lot of ppl like to give advice that sounds like they are copying and pasting from text book's instead of using real life situation's. Everything does not work the same for everyone. If I did not utilize cardio and weight's, and ate whatever I wanted (as long as it's in my macros) then I would not look the way I do, and that's just a fact. I was under the impression that this is a BB'ing website, maybe I was wrong.....

    YEA! Screw empirical evidence from so called science.

    Ones single persons personal experience trumps any peer-reviewed study and is all I need to know. Their biased subjective experience is all one needs in order to separate whats real and whats not.

    Science- schmience!

    Never said that either. Like I said my way is not the right way for everyone, but why don't more ppl on here talk about what works FOR THEM in real life instead of - i read this study.....i read that study......easy way out.... there seems to be a lot of that going on....oh well....like i said whatever works

    What I stated happens to also work for me. I got to 7% BF eating a 300g carbohydrate meal of kids cereal and sugar prior to bed almost nightly.

    I agree 100%. If you have superior genetics, yes you can eat whatever you want and see results. If it was as simple as calories, everyone would be walking around at 6%bf and 18" arms.....

    Most of us believe in evidence based practice which is essentially the blending of science and art. You on the other hand seem to have the mindset that the only information of value comes from the "trenches" or as you say "real life" This mindset is a mistake. You can not disassociate the art from the underlying science that supports it. Science gives us an objective measure to which help guide us in making decisions. This mindset that chooses to ignore this are only really doing an injustice to the themselves and that is perfectly fine (I am of the belief people have the right to be stupid if they so choose to be. Got my fingers crossed darwins theory will prevail in the end) but when these individuals start to spread this concept I do feel the need to chime in and help add some perspective. As I mentioned above in my sarcastic post, without consideration of scientific research, you will ultimately fall prey to the biases of subjectivity.

    Now, this does not mean that everything should be based on research alone and that personal anecdotal evidence is somehow irrelevant. It just shouldnt be the main driving force to creating ideas. Rather, one should be current with the available research and use this as their basis for decision making. You take the conclusions drawn from the research (as a whole, not just a single study) and apply them based on your personal experiences and whatever "real world" factors you need to consider (i.e injury, illness, schedule, convineince and practicality, etc) This is evidence-based practice and is what this industry needs more of

  19. Did I say food choices don't matter? I said portion control and overall macronutrient intake is far more important.

    These nutrition debates always end up in semantics, which is why I'm not gonna bother here. If you do truly find scientific evidence to be of little worth, though, then there is a fundamental flaw in your approach to problem-solving.

    Exactly....wouldn't we all love have those genetics, BUT WE DON'T!!!

    Again.....I'm already bored......what did you say earlier? Science- schmience!

    What's your REAL WORLD experience??

    I have low T, high E, high cortisol, low TSH, and was in the 15th percentile of bodyweight throughout my entire childhood. What genetics?

    The tenets of my statements are used by physicians in my locale in the treatment of obesity. Hundreds of thousands of success stories from one clinic alone. Is that real world enough?
