    I am against all mental medications so I'll skip that part. you need to stop eating so much food. the meds will make it tough to build muscle and convert your food to fat, but gaining weight is from eating too many calories. if you have the apple body type I would suggest weight training to build muscle. I would concentrate on your legs. most people I see with that body type eat horrible and dont have any muscle. keep some cardio days though. diet pills will not help you.
    sorry to be the Ahole.

    I have somewhat of a different view on it myself. Although I do agree with some of what you said, and I think it was good advice. But I've also been in a similar situation myself, and seen and made diets for many people who have been in the same situation as well, and the answer WAS NOT to not eat as much.

    First of all I think it's fair to assume that anybody who finds themselves in this situation to begin with is leaning more towrds the endomorph side of the scale, rather than the ectomorph side. An ecto wouldn't ever have this problem to begin with.

    With an endo, the metabolism is by nature slower than the average person. To the point where the answer is NOT to not eat as much. I've seen people cut back to the point where they only eat maybe 2 or 3 meals a day, and when they do eat it's hardly anything at all, like maybe a pop tart or toast or something extremely small. Well obviously there not eating very many cals, and should be losing weight, but it doesn't work like that. When you quit eating like that, you take your already naturally slow metabolism and almost totally shut it off.

    Well, we all know what happens when your metabolism is going slow, you don't burn calories. The people, myself included, that have done this, have actually GAINED weight on that kind of diet. Not the answer.

    The answer was to eat more, keep it clean of course, keep your carbs up, to keep your metabolism going, if you go real low carb, and up your fats, your metabolism will slow down.

    My advice to you would be to set up a diet where your cals are a little bit below maintenance level. Then take that number and set up a macro ratio of something like 40/40/20 of protein/carbs/fat. Six to seven meals a day. It's important for you to keep doing that working out 5 times a week and doing that cardio though. Cardio and working out speeds up your metabolism incredibly.

    So personally, I would keep the cardio and working out schedule, just change the diet to something along those lines and you will be amazed how eating more food and more frequently will actually make the fat disappear faster than trying to not eat as much.

    Hey Workin 2005.....This is pretty much how my diet has been going for the past month or so.....Since i have been hearing so many different things from people i kind of just did my own thing some people said less calories, others said less carbs, then others said eat 7 times a day and other said only eat 4 so this is what ive been doing and how i have been eating...... I work 5 times a week so when i get to work at 9:00am i eat either a bowl of special K cereal with fat free milk, or something simple like fruit and yogurt....about 12:00 i get a little hungry so i snack on 100 calorie packs of wheat thins or i have a handful of peanuts....(i do not snack on chips or any other junk food...if i do have something like that its literally 3 chips and thats it just to get rid of my craving for it...and this is not everydays or all the time), for lunch around 2:30 i have a Tossed Salad with chicken and light italian or balsamic and oil dressing i dont have this everyday for lunch but some of the foods i will have for lunch would be.....chicken breast (deli) on wheat toast with spicy brown mustard, provalone cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. Veggie Melts with Broccoli, provalone cheese and Mushrooms. Grilled or oven roasted chicken sandwhich with lettuce and tomato on wheat bread with Sweet corn. (stuff along the lines of that stuff...i like alot of chicken not big on fish unless it's sushi. Then for Dinner sometimes i'll have a really small bowl of pasta with homemade red sauce (just enough to fill me), Asparagus, Corn, Broccoli, Baked Potatoes with butter and a little salt, oven roasted chicken, salad no heavy dressings i dont really like dressings just oil and vinegar, Rice pilaf, if im in the mood ill have an egg white omlette with cheese, broccoli and mushrooms. (i eat that for breakfast as well sometimes)....Im not big on snaking but if i do it's usually jello (sugar free) yougurt, fruit, Nuts and Sherbert, Slush! .....i think i pretty much sumed it up sorry for the whole story but i just really need some help......also you should no that i do not like fast food like miky d's burger king or wendy's i have not had that stuff in over 4 months and i dont drink soda because im really trying to get this diet going the only thing i love to eat on a cheat day is french fries (my favorite food) and i only eat them once a week as to where four months ago it was almost like 4 times a week

    The first thing I notice is a HUGE lack of Protein in your diet. Every meal should contain about 30-50 grams of protein. After you have that taken care of, it's simply a matter of balancing carbs and fats.

    Your meals should be planned better and you should shoot for 6 per day. There are a ton of "diet tricks" that work for some and not for others, but the 6 meals per day plan has proven effective for people over and over again across the board.

    Shoot me an email at: aaron@nimbusnutrition.com

    i hink your biggest problem is those pills you take. if it is at all possible.... get of the pills! There are a bunch of different natural ways to help your situation.

    try some muira puama. i dont know exactly what your condition is but most of the time the types of medications your taking do more harm than good.

    you cant go wrong going the natural way, you just cant so give it a try.

    RoRo... I feel for you. I actually used to take Celexa because I was depressed and down about how I looked with weight. Then, I actually put on .5lbs per day for 40 days in a row. Needless to say, the pill I was taking to cure being depressed actually caused me to be more depressed.

    I am not a doctor and do not know your specific issues, but honestly, I think the best thing I ever did was stop taking those pills. I just went cold turkey on the anti-depressants. The best thing I have ever done for my mood and wellbeing has been to change my diet. Although it is not the best for building muscle, try to do a raw or natural food diet for a few weeks. I think you will have more energy and more importantly I promise that you will feel like a new human being. Once you get all the crap out of your body you will most likely not need any antidepressants... then you can go back to eating clean food with more protien and get back in shape. Give it a shot!

    This is my first post to this group, so I hope I am doing it correctly.

    I'm in the same boat as Roro84. I have been running 4-5 times per week (typically 45 minutes each time) and started lifting weights in January (2xs per week). I'm not a bodybuilder. I've got the cardio down pat, but I know there is something wrong with the other half of the nutrition equation.

    I have just been putting on more and more belly fat and have gained a handful of pounds in just 6 weeks. I'm female BTW.

    I eat very healthy, but never know if I'm eating too much or not enough. My caloric intake is around 2000 calories, but I have changed my diet since I last kept a food diary back in January. I am now experimenting with the moderate carb, moderate protein, higher "good" fat program eating lots of wild salmon, veggies, omelettes, nuts, etc.. I don't eat meat.

    I just can't seem to figure out the correct balance and quantities. I eat three meals with snackes in between, typically a piece of string cheese and an apple and/or some nuts.

    Any guidance you can provide would be much appreciated!

    you need to eat meat. if that is really not an option then look into milk, whey, something with protein in it. nuts are great but full of calories.

    I eat lots of salmon (4-5 times per week), tuna, and eggs (daily egg white omelette), so I do get plenty of protein. I also eat low fat ricotta cheese as a dessert, which is also high in protein. I have cut out all bread and grains two weeks ago and use only low carb tortillas. I'm not sure what else I can do. I have gained 13 pounds over the past year. I am not "fat", but all the excess weight is distributed around my middle, which is so unhealthy.

    Prior to a year ago, I used to eat out 3 times per week, eating the bread in the basket, and had a glass of red wine every night, but yet, I was 13 pounds lighter back then. I still ran 3-4 times per week (45 minutes), but did not lift weights.

    I would guess that I ate more back with all the restaurant meals.

    Which makes me question the theory that perhaps I am not eating enough calories now, though I find that hard to believe since I'm at roughly 2000-2200. I have used some of the calculators to determine my basic caloric needs, not accounting for exercise and it came to about 1700-1800 calories just to exist.

    However, I did just experiment with eating more healthy fats (and more calories), (e.g. nuts, avocados) and I ended up gaining weight so that theory seems to not hold water.

    I have the workouts down pat, but the nutrional side of the equation is where I am lacking since that is 50% of the equation.

    I do have whey powder, but have not used it lately.

    What is the difference you've felt since you started taking it... I suggest switching to something like Kava Kava or valarian root, if it is less anxiety. That should solve the low metabolism issue

    one year is not going to slow down your body enough to say your older now and have a slower metabolism. there had to be a change that is making you gain weight. eating more calories makes me gain weight. I have problems believing you can eat more calories and lose weight. timing of your meals is important. sounds like the types of food you are eating is good. is it possible you have gained muscle weight? women's weight will fluxuate more than mens, but the average should be the same. it seems like you are either eating more calories or burning less.

    There is a good chance my thyroid is hypothyroid. I've had a out-of-range reading in the past, though it tested normal on a follow up visit so I didn't give it a second thought. About 18 years ago, I was also on a synthetic thyroid medication for a short time also which I had completely forgotten abouat. After being completely perplexed as to why I was continuing to gain so much weight even though I cut out my evening popcorn, wine, and am on a low carb diet, not to mention all the working out, the thyroid issue popped in my mind as a possible cause. One apparent way to determine if there are issues is to take your daily temperature first thing in the morning, before you move about. Mine has been quite low. I'm giving it a few more days before I contact the doctor, but I am hoping that this will be the answer to the question of why the weight gain and difficulty in losing it. I also match most of the other symptoms attributable to hypthyroidism. Part of me doesn't want to have it of course, but part of me would be relieved to know there is a reason for my symptoms. We'll see...

    Why are they like poison? I think depression/anxiety meds have helped a lot of people lead happier less stressful lives. So what physical harm do they do to a persons body, just to clarify?

    the people that take those medicines are not happy nor less stressfull they are just living in denial!!! you can try to argue all you want but when it comes down to it... its not real. A pill does not fix what causes those problems.

    I dont know why you are even asking this question, i thought it was common knowledge.. Lets just say most people would agree that those kinds of pills are not good for your body and that the side effects outweigh the benefits.

    IMO taking a pill to fix depression, anxiety, stress and whatever else problems life throws at you is just making your problem worse. First of all... by taking a synthetic drug the cause of the problem does not go away, so now you are living in denial, and the problem is still there. On top of that you can add drug addiction to your list of problems.. a drug that is leaving chemical residues in your body, destroying your brain, your personality, and giving you all kinds of other side effects that you have to take more medications for!!!

    Farmaceutical companies are the biggest drug dealers in the world. If they sold you something that fixed the problem and didnt give you any other problems then they all would be nice people and the world would be a perfect place. The reality of the matter is, they are evil bastards driven by greed. They just sell you a lie. Its a remedy, that makes you have to come back and buy more, and more to fix the side effects the first drug gave you.

    I'll have to agree. the bad thing is most people are pushing these pills as cures. I work with people that think everyone should be on them for one reason or another. no more bandaids. get rid of the pill and fix the problem.

    hmmm


    This is pretty absurd for the most part--however i am not a fan of pharm companies nor the doctors that "push" these chems, but saying that they are not good for your body without backing it up... you still didnt answer the question. Have you ever dealt w/ anxiety or depression (im guessing not based on your reply)....ever heard of clinical depression not just the "blues or im sad i got dumped, didnt pass a test, got fired etc..." Some people have a chemical imbalance(sure excuses, excuses, but what if everything in your life is peachy king, rich, loved, successful....but you still feel down, anxious, have felt better a lot better in the past under worse circumstances)....its genetics a lot of the time. So lemme ask you this..what is the "cure" (besides altering your genotype..)to these problems....that isnt just a "band-aid." im sure millions of people would love to know what you know if you've got an answer. Whats the point of living life feeling miserable just to avoid taking a pill...you only live once man. FYI i have taken these poisons and feel a million times better...w/ no side effects to speak of....liver is fine, blood tests are great...
