    weekly weigh in

    I thought it might be fun to start a thread where members could stop by, talk about fitness goals, weigh in once a week or so, and just give an update on how you are doing.

    I have been doing low carbs since the middle of January. Then, a few weeks back my wife wanted to start doing the meal replacement shake thing. I lost 19 pounds in the first 19 days of that program. I weigh in again today and will let you know.

    LOL Chrys! I can't rep that yet but hope to!

    Hi Delmar,
    Are you trying the same shakes that Judge Napolitano on Fox News used and lost so much weight with?

    I had to google that to find out that he did the Factor4 program. We are doing Herbalife. Primarily because my stepson's girlfriend got him going on it, and they sell the product. When my wife said she wanted to try it , and I was already losing weight, I figured why not go with the same program.

    Just saw this link on IF

    http://www.sunnyskyz.com/blog/1642/T...t-For-16-Hours

    I have nothing against IF and may try it soon but it looks to me like it amounts to a variation on caloric restriction. What's the main difference between eating only within an 8 hour block vs eating smaller meals at the usual times?

    I generally skip breakfast and eat two meals within an 8 hour window.

    I think there's some evidence that fat burning is in high gear for those morning hours while you are fasting.
    There are mild spikes in HGH production while fasting.
    And less insulin spikes are a good thing.

    I don't think there's any huge advantage to it over eating more smaller meals.
    I just like being able to eat bigger meals while keeping total calories in check. For me, breakfast
    is calories I don't need or particularly want.

    172, lost an inch/2 lbs. around the belly, but gained 2 lbs. in my brain. Took a nap after discovering how brilliant-er I am, from last week.

Your body is fueling it self on your fat reserves at this time when you're fasted. So if you burn 100 calories fed, if you did the same thing while fasted it can be double or even quadruple the calories burned. Fasting also increases human growth hormone by 100s of %. Growth hormone increases lean mass and causes you to lose fat easier. Basically you don't put on as much fat eating the same stuff if you just put it all in one meal a day.

    I am experienced when it comes to IF having done it for a long time. If I could put it into numbers maybe even over a 1000 times lol. I have done longer water fasts too, I just did one for 16 days. That's a different kind of fast but it also has its own benefits.

    Read leangains IF blog to learn more on IF. Or look up the science and fine art by herbert m shelton to learn more about fasting in general.
    Can I still take a nap?

    Eliminating unneeded fuel works every time. The body prefers fatty acids and it will absorb them as long as you don't feed your body a bunch of grains and starch.

    last year i was in a daily routine that contributed to a weight gain that peaked at 265

    this year is very different and i've dropped 45 pounds without really trying - just different eating habits, different activity levels

    been hiking with the dog, but that's limited by her ability - she's 14

    soon as the ice is out of the slip i intend to start rowing

    as soon as the spring rains wash the salt off the roads i'll start biking again

    and as soon as the ground firms up there's no end to the chores and maintenance at the cottage and the farm

    my goal is to break 200 by the fourth of july

    Well, I broke my leg and back in 2011 so I can't get into exercise too much. I'm hoping a sugar free diet will help but I've been eating sugar again.
