I already lost 79 lbs since I started my healthy diet 7 months ago. I eat clean (mostly) n healthy ,never skip a meal. eat more than 1,200 cal intake and exercise at least 3 days a week. now I got 10 lbs left (mostly belly fat) to reach my goal. I always have time for the gym in the evening. Cardio,HIIT (sometimes) n train. I just knew that I have to study 7 days a week for 2-3 months in the evening which means no gym and for my lifestyle I spend a lot of time sitting (study n even doing my project) I don't know how to deal with my new schedule and my diet / to lose fat together and I need some advice on meal plan.I usually eat a lot of carbs 180-250g per day (90% good carbs (oatmeal , whole grain, fruits and vegetable) Not sure if I should eat more protein cause I felt like my digestion doesn't get along well with chicken or beef. though I can eat fish n bean even low-fat diary products. Tell me if you have any advice or tips for me. Thank youView Thread
eat protein as soon as you can after running it will help you stay injury free, also stretch after your training or competition, eat handfuls of fruits and nuts as snacks, it looks like you don't have any weight issues so I would maintain what you are doing other wise.View Thread
Unfortunately for most of us, it's still much safer for us to diet and exercise. It's very confusing to try to get through the hype and decide on a plan. For now, I am trying to eat less junk food and exercise 30-45 minutes at the gym 3 times a week. Down about 12 lbs in 6 weeks...not exciting...but progress...View Thread

The biggest struggle I am facing while trying to lose a couple of pounds, is craving to sweets. I recently discovered a wonderful product, which helps me satisfy the craving and helps me with weight loss as well. The product is called Yacon Syrup, I found some blog which I dont even remember where I found it, but i found the product on amazon for a very reasonable price, and I am extremely happy, it just changed my life. (there are many brands out there, many of them have cheap and bad tasting right from china, just check the amazon reviews before you buy it)View Thread
I quit after smoking no less than 2 packs a day for over 40 years. I am a truck driver and all I have to do is light one up as a new situation arises. For everyone that chooses the excuse "I don't want to gain weight that is why I don't want to quit" I have one word for you that worked for me cold turkey. "DIET" yes that is correct, I will tell you how I did it. Being a truck driver I have to take a medical exam every year for the DOT and during the last one they saw my sugar was to high, I went to the doctor and he told me to go on a low carb diet of about 100 carbs a day. Amazing on how much you can eat and loose weight. Now about the smoking relation to this is the hunger pains I got from the change of my diet I blamed on the smoking withdraw or vice versa not knowing which was causing my discomfort, after the first few weeks I gave the issues no thought because I was loosing so much weight, I lost close to 20 pounds in the first month! I am still loosing weight, when I do get a urge to smoke I tell myself "self .... you don't smoke anymore" and I move on. Ya know, I feel great now my motivation to quit also helps, my wife smokes, not much but she has COPD and as long as I smoked she would never quit, so someone had to stop first, now I prey she gets the message I am sending and quit her self, I don't think I have to bug her about it, I want her to do it on her own. She has my support. I hope this helps, all I can say is you can do it and it doesn't have to cost you anything and like me I gained a better life and saved money at the same time.View Thread
