Found out that eating less than 1000 calories a day was more damaging to weight loss than good. Still pretty close to the obesity bmi. A 1200 calories diet would require me to eat double of what I am already eating. Would I be better off eating a cheeseburger for two meals? Burger = 500 cal. Fucking help.
Can we have a making it/good feels thread? I'll start:
>Studying in my floor's den/lounge
>started lifting first semester, been clean bulking and enjoying beginner gains, confidence slowly going up
>two hot girls and 1 qt who all room together come in and sit at the table im at
>talk to me for ~30 minutes and I didn't sperg once, held the conversation well and even made them have a couple of giggles
Don't think any of them are into me, but it still feels good man. Feel like I can conquer the world atm
> woke up depressed as fuark
> hop on scale to check da weight
> finally under 200 lbs
I haven't been under 200 since middle school /fit/. The suicidal thoughts are starting to subside and I can actually wear a shirt without checking to see if my nipples or stomach are poking out every 3 vseconds. My bodyfat has dropped significantly and I'm seeing minor strength gains. One day I'll make it bros.
>Bench stalling for forever over this winter at around 185x6
>Decide to cut for around a month
>come back to bulking for another month or so
>Lifts suddenly skyrocket, go from struggling to hit 195x4 to benching 225x3 in less then 2 weeks
>all while much leaner then I was before
Just seems like some overpriced food.
Everything is titled as healthy but shit is clocking in at 200+ calories for a small bar.
Got that vegan shit everywhere that still seems bad for you only with a serious price hike.
Are all the owners Jewish?
They only exist because most vegans are stupid and pay extra for gimmicks, and because suburban housewives want to brag to their friends about how they only feed their kids "whole foods" just like Dr. Oz said to
what do you do when you lose motivation?
motivation is for faggots seeking external validation
new(ish)fag here: first post, too poor/lazy for gym membership, but recognise I'm unfit as fuck. What are simple, equipmentless things I can put into my daily routine to get in shape. Already doing:
15 min run morning and evening
situps until I physically cannot do more (unfit fuck so ~20), rest and then another set.
Same as above with pushups.
i've eaten less than 700 calories today (cutting)
it's 9 pm
if i go for a quick 15 minute run will i die?
A girl im banging/training tells me coca cola is good post workout to help replenish glycogen deposits. I just listen. She's 5'6 115lbs 25%bf. Tells me she wants to hit 20%.I tell her she needs to cut out the soda. I tell her there are better alternatives to coca cola. She disagrees and acts like her opinion is a fact and refuses to even look at links of nutritional information that I send her. Telling her I can't train her anymore next week. What's the best way to tell a crazy bitch I can't train her without her ruining my rep as a trainer by bashing...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If I'm 5'11 350 lbs, how many calories would I burn walking exactly 4 miles? Calorie calculators online seem to all vary wildly between 500 to 1000 calories.
Enough with the wimpy faggots too scared to do it, who else here trains at a crossfit box to get actually functionally fit and strong? Or is /fit/ nothing but gay bodybuilders and fat powerlifters?
you will never be this alpha
>gym worker tries to stop him from working out there
>gets the gains goblin fired
I feel like they can't be good for your wrist.
I'm 225 lbs and can do like 15 body weight dips when I used to do them.
Then I tore a ligament in my wrist.
After, I cut out both dips and forearm isolation exercises.
Never had the problem again but I don't know which caused the tear.
i live in an area where there's not any great gyms around. i'm stuck either using a planet fitness, a ymca, or a home gym, but that'd cost a lot to get the equipment. i've heard both planet fitness and ymca are pretty shit for weight lifting. if you were stuck in this situation, which would you go for? planet fitness is cheap but shit all around and the ymca is kinda expensive but has basketball courts and pools/hot tubs, too. starting my weight lifting journey at the start of summer and don't wanna waste money
Who else had shitty parents that raised them on sugar/fast food/candy and no exercise?
Pic related, I only drank these, orange juice, and soda every day until I was 14 I realized the harm I did to my body. I had a BMI of 31 and no muscle. My best friend never outgrew this and is now 19 with a BMI of 50
I hate how my parents knew how fat was getting and how damaging it was but didn't change anything. What finally turned me around was learning about the nutrition types and diet in health class
Ugh, this guy right here. I don't blame my parents entirely, but they got theirs. My mom is Type II, I'd be by now as well had I not made necessary changes.
She is at least trying to do lowcarb, it has been helping a lot when she sticks to it.
I was 325lbs at one point, down to a muscular 175 now. Lots of extra skin, but I'm proud of what I've accomplished.
What's crazy to me, with my perspective, is that people can be satisfied with life at 300+ lbs. For me, there was no option. I had to lose that weight, there was no giving up or accepting it.
/fit/ I need help. How can one girl in my life completely control my actions and thoughts just by me looking at her. How can I be stoic all the time except when I'm with her. How can I completely be vulnerable to this girl and why is she the one I can't get over. Also mental health general
You're smitten with an ideal and not an actual person (the girl in particular)
Source: Made the same unreciprocated infatuation mistake multiple times with nothing but heart ache to show for it.
My advice. Question what about her causes you to feel this way, and be aware that your feelings are pretty unrealistic especailly if you just saw/met her.
What does fit think about Radu Antoniu?
