Weight Loss Thread

Recommended Posts

Saw a stunning example of what happens when you weigh yourself daily. (Remember that my program requires it)

I weighed 167.3 yesterday after my morning shower. I ate dinner late on Sunday and had an ear of corn. I followed that transgression up with a terrible night’s sleep.

I did nothing special yesterday - ate healthy food, drank the proper amount of water, took a 20 minute walk. And then got a good night’s sleep.

I weighed in at 163.1 this morning. It’s amazing how much water weight salt and sugar can cause you to retain.

Well, I'm no longer running. My hips and knees can't take it. I ran on Monday and my hips were still aching on Wednesday. So, I'm now walking 1.5 miles in the morning and doing the same in the afternoon with no aches and pains.

That's probably even better exercise for you,

The salt especially. I know a couple that continually talk about their weight issue (and they do have one). When we're over at their house they are packing down the potato chips non stop. We've cut out so much salt that I can't even have the lightly salted chips as they are just too salty for me.  On the other hand don't ask me about my fixation with sugar!

Hey all.  It's my first time posting to this thread but hopefully the beginning of of regular contributions.  I can't begin to describe how encouraging it is to see everyone share their stories.  My goal is to use this thread not only as a source of information and encouragement but also as a medium for accountability.  I can only hope that I return as much of those things as I receive.  I'm Sean and I'm about 120 pounds over what a 32 year old male who is 5'5" should weigh.  I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and my knees ache most days of the week.  Something has to give, and I'd rather that something not be my heart, joints, etc.  I'm considering switching to a mostly plant-based diet along the lines of what people like Joel Fuhrman and Ray Cronise prescribe.  That would represent a massive change in my lifestyle, but my situation requires a dramatic amount of weight loss.  My plan is to make this change when I'm fully prepared (gathered information, tried recipes, consulted with my physician) which I estimate to be about 10 weeks from now.  Between now and then I have several major life events happening that I know will sabotage me if I commit any earlier (wedding ~4 weeks out, moving ~6 weeks out, start new job ~ 8 weeks out).  From now until that point I'm going to make healthier decisions and try and be as active as possible.  It's simply all I have to give at the moment.  I want to preemptively thank everyone for being what I'm sure will be the kind of community I need not only right now but moving forward as well.

Just remember you don't have to do this alone.  What ever you choose, also remember too quick in the weight loss and you wont keep it off, not to mention what your body will be going through.  We are all here for you, so if you feel a need reach out.  Someone here will have encouragement for you at the ready.

Here’s the thing - why not start making positive changes now even if you aren’t all in?

You are going to a plant based diet? How about no meals without produce? Okay you have bacon and eggs for breakfast but it’s two less slices and berries on the plate too. Salad with lunch, asparagus at dinner, banana and lightly salted mixed nuts as your snack.

Regardless you can do this and we will help. If I can loose 45 and keep it off for a year at my age and all of my bad eating habits anyone can.

You will love your new life style.

At 5’4” (used to be 5’6”-growing old is life’s greatest adventure) I can relate. I weighed 225 and was just about to turn 60 when I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I went on a carb reduced diet (the Mediterranean diet- high veg, healthy dietary fats-olive oil, nuts,avocados, fatty fish, less red meat) and lost 80 pounds in 10 months. That all started 7 years ago and I have kept the weight off. I did it and as long as you have the will to try, so can you. As you will know from other posts in this thread, weight loss will not occur in a straight line. You will have set backs for a myriad of reasons. Just persevere through the set backs. 

There is no shortage of bad advice out there, particularly on the net. Only accept scientifically tested, evidence based advice. I strongly recommend The Obesity Code by Dr. Jason Fung, a kidney specialist, as a great starting point to decode obesity and how to address it without getting trapped in the yo-yo diet cycle.

If you are trying to sort out Type 2 diabetes and would like to explore the possibility of preventing and even reversing the disease, than the companion book The Diabetes Code is essential reading IMO. I am about to try to finally kick this disease 7 years after I was diagnosed. It will take about 4 months to see if I can (a) stick with the program and (b) in the immortal words of John Lee Hooker, Quit It ‘fore It Quits You.

Good luck on your journey.

Thanks everyone for the great responses.  It's been a really good few days since my post.  I'm focusing on what I can reasonably do before the wedding: count calories, limit salt, make healthier choices, be more active.  I'm already encouraged by your support.  

@Pug, despite taking such poor care of myself, my blood glucose is fine.  But I do have a family history of diabetes so it's something that's always on my mind.

Checking back in after a long break.  Got down to 265 from 293 but let myself gain after from June until this week.  Weighed in at 278 a few days go.  Decided to join the gym again which works for me as it is next door to my golf club.  Couple buddies and co-workers are having good result with the 16/8 intermittent fasting.  Currently o day 1 of that and looking forward to eating in about 8 minutes.

... Congrats to all of you trying to make positive changes in your life!!! I have always been very active and never got more than 20lbs over weight in winter but thankfully my family is extremely health conscious so I want to share a few things I have learned from them. 

... Agro Biz has really done a number on the American public. The most egregious is sugar. Sugar is a once in a blue moon treat and should most definitely not be included in anything but deserts. It is highly addictive, as much as cocaine and once in it's grip it is extremely difficult to do without it. Getting rid of ALL high fructose and most processed sugar in your diet is a really great place to start. 

... The bad news that most just don't want to hear or believe is food is not and was never supposed to be "delicious".  It is a real eye opener for most. Quite simply food is fuel and the nutrients in food are necessary for a healthy and active life style. Now the good news is once you change your palate, you will find lost of really good tasting food you would have never thought possible. Kale, a superfood that is sooooo good for you gets a bad rap because raw it is tough and not very tasty. But massaging Kale, actually squeezing and breaking it down, and then adding virgin olive oil, cranberries/cherrries/raisens, lime/lemon juice and a little honey is one of our favorite foods and is really quite tasty! Green beans with some Fresno chillies and a baked potato slathered in grass fed butter and sour cream are excellent side dishes to Ribs, Burgers, Steaks, Grilled Chicken and Pork Chops.

... The other good news is the reason most over eat is because their bodies are not getting the nutrients they need. If you eat a salad with fresh vegetables and an oil/vinegar/lemon dressing and a nice grass fed steak or burger (sans bun) and some broccoli bathed in grass fed butter you will enjoy the meal and be satiated until your next meal because you are getting the fat and protein your body needs. But eat some CAFO meat of any kind (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation) that is stripped of nutrients as well as added chemicals and hormones for cows standing in there own feces, with some boxed Mac and Cheese and some chips and a sugary desert and your body still wants more nutrients NOT more food so you eat more, because what you ate is not really food. Once you change your eating habits to nutrients that you need, instead of food-like-substances that you want you can eat as much as you like because when the body gets the nutrients it needs, you cease to be hungry. Ever eat a box of flavored crackers but you are still hungry? You have triggered your body's need for nutrients but there are so few in processed foods that your body still wants more, More, MORE!

... And more good news is you can eat salt, just not table salt that has all the minerals stripped out and adds iodine, but Himalayan Sea Salt that has 84 natural minerals that balance the sodium and has no detrimental effect, in fact quite the opposite as our bodies need salt for basic cellular function. 

... Eat organic or better yet grow your own vegetables. Find a local rancher that provides grass fed beef and pastured chicken and pork. We eat a TON of meat from a rancher/farmer we know in Iowa and we are all in excellent health. It isn't cheap but that is the scam Ago Biz has pulled on the American public, because food never was cheap. If it is cheap, it isn't real food.

... I used to be a typical American male eating fast food and all the junk corporations have produced for profit knowing full well it is bad for us. Once I saw the light, thanks to my wife and 2 boys about 10 years ago, I have been happily surprised by just how good REAL FOOD tastes and again YOU CAN EAT AS MUCH AS YOU WANT because once you get the nutrients you need, you just aren't hungry. That said, the hard part is giving up the sh!t that passes for food, ridding you body of its chemical addiction and then taking the time to make good food a priority. We are the fattest and sickest country in the world because we don't eat nutritional food, we eat junk. 

... I could go on and on but hopefully you get the idea. Sorry for this soapbox post but I think it is just so very important to truly understand what real food is, why we eat crap and why we are so over weight and so sick. You are posting and reading this thread so you must want to be healthier. The change isn't easy, but once you dedicate yourself to real food and a healthy diet you will find real food actually tastes great and after some time away, gong back and trying to eat processed junk is impossible because it isn't food and it states terrible, like a mouth full of foul chemicals. I used to eat Cheese Puffs by the barrel and now they taste like garbage. I wish all of you the best of luck in your journey to better health!

So far so good on this intermittent fasting.  Down 4 pounds after just a few days on it.  I get a little hungry at work as I'm up at 430 am and don't eat until 10am.  My last time to consume calories is 6pm so I am eating at 540pm or so.  I'm not going to fast on my days off as  I get busy and bounce all over with projects, appts, golf, and what not.  My goal is to doing the IF 4-5 days a week and get some exercise 3-4 days a week.  Next stop...225 lbs.

... Congrats to all of you trying to make positive changes in your life!!! I have always been very active and never got more than 20lbs over weight in winter but thankfully my family is extremely health conscious so I want to share a few things I have learned from them. 

... Agro Biz has really done a number on the American public. The most egregious is sugar. Sugar is a once in a blue moon treat and should most definitely not be included in anything but deserts. It is highly addictive, as much as cocaine and once in it's grip it is extremely difficult to do without it. Getting rid of ALL sugar in your diet is a really great place to start. 

... The bad news that most just don't want to hear or believe is food is not and was never supposed to be "delicious".  It is a real eye opener for most. Quite simply food is fuel and the nutrients in food are necessary for a healthy and active life style. Now the good news is once you change your palate, you will find lost of really good tasting food you would have never thought possible. Kale, a superfood that is sooooo good for you gets a bad rap because raw it is tough and not very tasty. But massaging Kale, actually squeezing and breaking it down, and then adding virgin olive oil, cranberries/cherrries/raisens, lime/lemon juice and a little honey is one of our favorite foods and is really quite tasty! Green beans with some Fresno chillies and a baked potato slathered in grass fed butter and sour cream are excellent side dishes to Ribs, Burgers, Steaks, Grilled Chicken and Pork Chops.

... The other good news is the reason most over eat is because their bodies are not getting the nutrients they need. If you eat a salad with fresh vegetables and an oil/vinegar/lemon dressing and a nice grass fed steak or burger (sans bun) and some broccoli bathed in grass fed butter you will enjoy the meal and be satiated until your next meal because you are getting the fat and protein your body needs. But eat some CAFO meat of any kind (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation) that is stripped of nutrients as well as added chemicals and hormones for cows standing in there own feces, with some boxed Mac and Cheese and some chips and a sugary desert and your body still wants more nutrients NOT more food so you eat more, because what you ate is not really food. Once you change your eating habits to nutrients that you need, instead of food-like-substances that you want you can eat as much as you like because when the body gets the nutrients it needs, you cease to be hungry. Ever eat a box of flavored crackers but you are still hungry? You have triggered your body's need for nutrients but there are so few in processed foods that your body still wants more, More, MORE!

... And more good news is you can eat salt, just not table salt that has all the minerals stripped out and adds iodine, but Himalayan Sea Salt that has 84 natural minerals that balance the sodium and has no detrimental effect, in fact quite the opposite as our bodies need salt for basic cellular function. 

... Eat organic or better yet grow your own vegetables. Find a local rancher that provides grass fed beef and pastured chicken and pork. We eat a TON of meat from a rancher/farmer we know in Iowa and we are all in excellent health. It isn't cheap but that is the scam Ago Biz has pulled on the American public, because food never was cheap. If it is cheap, it isn't real food.

... I used to be a typical American male eating fast food and all the junk corporations have produced for profit knowing full well it is bad for us. Once I saw the light, thanks to my wife and 2 boys about 10 years ago, I have been happily surprised by just how good REAL FOOD tastes and again YOU CAN EAT AS MUCH AS YOU WANT because once you get the nutrients you need, you just aren't hungry. That said, the hard part is giving up the sh!t that passes for food, ridding you body of its chemical addiction and then taking the time to make good food a priority. We are the fattest and sickest country in the world because we don't eat nutritional food, we eat junk. 

... I could go on and on but hopefully you get the idea. Sorry for this soapbox post but I think it is just so very important to truly understand what real food is, why we eat crap and why we are so over weight and so sick. You are posting and reading this thread so you must want to be healthier. The change isn't easy, but once you dedicate yourself to real food and a healthy diet you will find real food actually tastes great and after some time away, gong back and trying to eat processed junk is impossible because it isn't food and it states terrible, like a mouth full of foul chemicals. I used to eat Cheese Puffs by the barrel and now they taste like garbage. I wish all of you the best of luck in your journey to better health! 

Chisag, I think you post some fantastic reviews for golf equipment, courses, etc. However, I had to cringe a few times reading your post on healthy eating. This is not a social media attack, just a difference of opinions...a good old fashioned disagreement...

Fear mongering is rampant in the weight loss industry. Don't eat this, don't eat that, demonize carbs, demonize sugar, etc. While a very small percentage of folks thrive on fear mongering, mentally, it's an unhealthy approach to your relationship with food. Fear mongering tells people that certain foods are evil, deadly, etc so they stay away as best they can, then when they give into temptation, they binge and bust their 'healthy' habits. How do you know if the person prescribing a diet may not have a full grasp on nutrition? They eliminate large food groups/ingredients/macros in order to achieve the same goal: caloric deficiency. You can be healthy eating the occasional pizza, just eat a salad beforehand. You can be healthy eating oreos, just stick to two, not a dozen. You can be healthy eating Arby's but limit it to once every other week, not every three days. 

Sugar, salt, fat, gluten, dairy, red meat, GMOs, and non-organic produce/food are all healthy...in the right dose.

Let's start with sugar. Sugar is not addictive like cocaine. The study performed with rats back a few years ago was flawed and many have spoken out about it. The rodents were only fed sugar every 2 hours. What human only eats sugar throughout the day? I would be hungry too if I was only given a dose of sugar every two hours instead of something satiating like a turkey sandwich or a hamburger. Sugar, in the right dose, is not harmful. Should you eat sugary foods/drinks every meal? No. Should you shun sugar? No, because your body NEEDS sugar. That's right. Your body NEEDS sugar, whether its glucose, fructose or sucrose. Does it need a lot? Well of course not. Cutting out sugar from your diet means cutting out fruits, vegetables, bread, dairy, every condiment, as well as every alcoholic beverage. A true sugar free diet is certain animal proteins, some vegetables and some nuts. Your body will not like that diet. 

Salt. There are studies that show salt are not as detrimental to those with good blood pressure. Basic overview is that if you have high blood pressure, watch your salt. If you have good blood pressure, it's not nearly as severe. The mineral content in fancy salt is so minimal, you would need to eat a crazy amount of salt for your body to benefit. Iodized/table salt is not unhealthy. However if you consume 1/4C of salt a day, then you should be more concerned with your intake than if you use Himalaya, pink sea salt, iodized salt, etc. 

Let's talk food advertising. Did you know there are only 10 GMO crops approved by the USDA? Those 10 are corn, potatoes, soybeans, canola, sugarbeets, apples, papayas, cotton, squash and alfalfa. You know what's not listed? Wheat. If you're buying Non-GMO pasta because of fear, guess what, you've been fooled. And the USDA has funded 82 studies concerning GMOs found in various ingredients/produce and 6 studies showed the GMO were healthier/safer than conventional foods, 62 showed no difference, 7 were inconclusive and 6 were shown to be less healthy/safe than conventional foods.

Organic foods might be the biggest sham by the food industry. Let's take the 'dirty dozen' produce list. Oh man, according to fear mongers, if you eat a regular strawberry, then you'll get cancer from all the pesticides. Guess how many regular strawberries one would need to eat in order to consume an unhealthy amount of pesticides? 186.

Did you know that when you spend the extra $2/lb for organic/antibiotic free chicken, you're buying the exact same chicken as the regular, less fancy chicken? USDA hasn't given a true definition of antibiotic free so if you see it on your food label, you're paying extra for nothing in return. 

While some food additives have unfamiliar names and are demonized left and right, the truth is that food and color additives are more strictly studied, regulated and monitored than at any other time in history. Those that spread the fear of additives, GMOs, non-organic foods, etc. cite rodent studies where the rate or mice were fed hundreds to thousands of times more of a given substance than are allowed in any food. In reality, those additives are at such low levels in foods, the risk is minimal. You have a better chance of getting e-coli from broccoli than an illness from additives. The ingredient/food is never the poison, it's the dose. 

Why live in fear when it comes to food?

In the last year I am down 40lb and down 15 since the start of the golf season. This has been a lot of hard work and watching what I eat. That being said I am stuck with about 15-20lb left to get to my goal. 

Going back to the basics that helped with the 40lb loss. Low to no carbs and intermittent fasting.

IF has no set rules other than the types of IF. 16:8, 20:4 or a 24 hour fast 1-2x/week. 

IF is nothing more than one way to control caloric intake and usually used to make eating in a deficit easier, but it’s possible to over eat in using IF.

... I over stated ALL sugar and have edited my post, sorry about that. I can supply link after link form health sources and you can provide link after link from the food industry refuting them.  I have educated myself on what food is and the thousands of years of farming and hunting compared to the last decade of chemically laden food like substances from Agro Biz that have created a very sick and obese country.  But I do not live in fear of food like substances masquerading as food, much the opposite we know our farmers and ranchers and really enjoy cooking and eating great food. 

... I have been down this road on another golf forum and agree we should leave this at we disagree. The 3 people I "fought" with about this worked for Monsanto, Kraft and owned a grocery store and we ended up quite adversarial and I don't care to go down that road again. 

... For anyone else reading this, I highly reccomend starting out with 2 documentaries Food Inc and Food Matters. I think they can change your life. Previews below:

Not every day for me. I have moved my eating window a few times but right now I eat early stop around 1pm after lunch. I am picking back up to 3-4 days a week to start losing again.

All I’ve done is a modified form of this sprinkled with moderate exercise and fish (I live where you can take a poll spend an hour in the water and bring dinner home). Lost 45 in 9 months and have kept it off for a year with no hiccups.

I keep seeing stuff lake fasting or fad type things pop up. It reminds me of our golf threads where without professional advice we cut our clubs, change our swing, buy a 700 driver because it works for Rory or whatever else.

My advice here is the same as for golf - consult your doctor and ask him to recommend a fitness expert - like a trainer - there are even golf specific trainers if you’d like to double up. As an added bonus your health insurance may cover your fitness program.

If you are struggling to keep the weight off it’s because you need a lifestyle change. The dads don’t work.

165.7 today - less than I weighed in college. I ate fish twice yesterday - it was delicious

... For anyone else reading this, I highly reccomend starting out with 2 documentaries Food Inc and Food Matters. I think they can change your life. Previews below:

 

 

I'm more than happy to let sleeping dogs lie, but if you're going to leave a rebuttal with those documentaries, I'd like to offer my final rebuttal as well...a challenge, if you will.

Anyone can offer nutritional advice because of social media. While the vast majority have no business offering up nutrition advice that either flies in the face of science or is complete hoakum, you can find those that practice and study nutrition on a daily basis if you know what to look for. Look for people who are registered dietitians (RD, RDN, MSRDN), have masters or PhDs in nutrition science, have a degree in chemical engineering with a focus on food science, etc....something that would equate years of study and are in the nutrition field every day of their life. Would you take legal advice from a sports broadcaster that dabbles in law? Would you take nutrition advice from an author or mommy blogger? Would you take golf club/ball advice from a doctor? Hopefully you'd be cautious in all of those scenarios and that's what leads me to these documentaries. 

Food Inc was written by Robert Kenner (film producer), Elise Pearlstein (film producer) and Kim Roberts (film writer). Food Inc touts the leading men, Eric Schlosser and Michael Pollan, as their 'experts'. Well, the first challenge is to look at their backgrounds and see if these men have any sort of nutritional background. Both are authors. Eric has written books on the Syrian conflict. Michael Pollan has written many self-help books. Do either spend their days in the world of nutrition or do they focus on one subject for a few months and then hop over to the next? Who would you take advice from? Someone who practices nutrition every day or someone who took an interest for a year or so and is now onto something else? I'll let you make that call. 

Food Matters was produced by, well, Food Matters, a natural health and wellness company in Australia. Food Matters is owned and operated by vegans. They push natural health and their 'expert'  PhD has written books that are aptly titled: Fire Your Doctor! and Doctor Yourself, a Natural Healing that Works. Do you know what we call alternative/natural medicine that works? Medicine. If going vegan helps you get to that healthy weight, then go for it, but the vegan lifestyle is one that is notorious for being malnourished. The diet lacks key nutrients like iron, vitamin B12, omega-3s, zinc and Vitamin D. Also, if you're comfortable taking advice from folks who don't think you need to go to your doctor, then have at it. I, personally, trust my doctor and my health is dependent on someone who believes in western medicine. 

There are other folks out there that have disguised themselves as nutrition experts, yet have no background or expertise other than trying to make a buck off the uninformed public. Please, please, please do your homework next time you see someone touting nutrition information. Also, look up research studies on topics you have questions about. Most of it is published online for free. Question about sugar? Look up studies and read the entire study, not just the summary. Questions about the safety of certain ingredients? Chances are someone has done a study on it. My wife is a registered dietitian and we receive the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics on a monthly basis. Just this past month they had a long-term study published about food exposure in childhood and how it relates to neophobia in college. It's fascinating stuff and it's all free. 

Science is not the enemy. In fact, the irony is that science has gotten us to a point where we are living longer and healthier than ever before, yet some want to deny that very science and go against it because it fits their personal narrative.

The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss 

The Diabetes Code.

 The Complete Guide to Fasting.(with Jimmy Moore).

The lead or sole author of each title is Dr. Jason Fung, M.D. He studied biochemistry at the University of Toronto where he also completed medical school and his residency in internal medicine. After residency he studied nephrology (kidney disease) at the University of California, L.A. Mostly at Cedar Sinai Medical Centre and West Los Angeles VA Medical Centers (then known as theVA Wadsworth).

Sufficient qualifications for me to carefully consider the opinions of this specialist. BTW, each book is replete with references to the numerous studies on these subjects, many of which were contradictory. Explanations regarding how contradictions occur are provided. For anyone looking for a thoughtful and in-depth professional opinion on these topics this is reading that I, as a layman, am happy to recommend.

Well, I got the treadmill Saturday and got it into the basement by myself...heavy little bugger too.

First go on it this morning. I'm really liking the weight loss setting as it automatically inclines to simulate hills and made me work up a little bit of a sweat going at 3.5 mph.

Thanks everyone for the great responses.  It's been a really good few days since my post.  I'm focusing on what I can reasonably do before the wedding: count calories, limit salt, make healthier choices, be more active.  I'm already encouraged by your support.  

@Pug, despite taking such poor care of myself, my blood glucose is fine.  But I do have a family history of diabetes so it's something that's always on my mind.

You’re off to a great start. You will find there can be many different paths to get to where you want to be. Intermittent fasting, for example, is not for everyone, and there are numerous variations on that theme. I think that it’s important that you have made a start. Processed carbs (as opposed to those naturally occurring in whole foods) and added sugars are my personal bug bear, but we each have our own.

Like anyone who became badly de-conditioned will tell you, the hardest thing about working out 🏋️♀️ is getting through the gym door!  The same applies to cleaning up our diet. Starting is the hard part.

Good luck.

IF has no set rules other than the types of IF. 16:8, 20:4 or a 24 hour fast 1-2x/week. 

IF is nothing more than one way to control caloric intake and usually used to make eating in a deficit easier, but it’s possible to over eat in using IF.

 

You might also check out The Complete Guide to Fasting by Dr Jason Fung and Jimmy Moore. It covers a wide range of fasting modalities and stresses the need to fit fasting around your life, and not to fit your life around fasting. I committed to a fairly rigorous 36 hour fasting schedule three times a week. I start after dinner on Sunday night, fast Tuesday through to breakfast on Wednesday. Repeat fasting through Thursday to breakfast Friday than again starting Friday after dinner.

 I started that regimen 21 Sept. On 14 October my doctor took me off my diabetes medication. This is just a test to see if I can keep my blood glucose under 5.9.  I will assess again in 5 weeks to determine if a longer fast in the 4 to 5 day range is required to break through insulin resistance or if my current regime has done it. If so, I will reduce the fasting duration to 24 hours two or three times a week  and adjust as required.

 I was Type 2 Diabetic for at least the last 7 years. 

Chalk one up for intermittent fasting.
