    Bodybuilders mostly use ultra-pure, sodium free, or distilled water before comps, I like the bit abot bodybuilders dying because of excessive steroid use and not excessive diet coke drinking....

    Default 20. Keep sodium intake at or below 2.5 grams per day

    how would you do this every thing you eat has sodium in it ?
    weight training is not my life just a means to have a life, so wear out or rust out it's up to you!

    The FDA...

    Did you know that food manufacturers do NOT have to prove that their products "Sustain life"...only that it probably won't kill you....

    Nuff said.

    Wouldn't that be like Ford legally selling brand new "Cars" that can't move???
    Total BS.

    I wouldn't trust the FDA for anything.

    I used to raise an eyebrow when I would see "not aproved by the FDA" on a label....nowadays I figure, what's the bloody difference! LOL

    I was just surfing the web, and i came across this helpful cutting tip if you enjoy gravies, soups, etc. I know some fat is good, but its just an idea.

    Chill soups, gravies and stews, then skim off the fat that floats to the top.

    Yeah I like Beef stew because you can put anything and everything in there just let it simmer for 2 hours or more and it all tastes the same. Just make sure you got at least a pound of stew meat or you won't get the most ot of the flavor.

    I knew someone who had an ulcer, in her 60s, strong as an ox, and she skimmed the fat off 3 times for every batch of meat, in the same manner as described. I use the once skimming technique too.

    Default How to burn the fat

    Hi group , i'm new to the group and despearately want to burn the fat. Out of these 25 fat reducing tips I'm following most of them but don't see a significant differnce?

    My weight was 165 lbs last year . (more than 14 months)
    since then my weigt is moving between 176-186 lbs.
    I look muscular bulky - hate myself when i see in the mirror.

    I used to run 3KM running 3 days per week - no difference

    In between I was not doing the regular workout , sometimes 1 month then then 2 weeks or 3 2weeks rest.

    I'm using low fat diet .

    I'm sure there is something or I'm doing right way to reduce the weight.


    your help is appreciated. thanks in advance.

    use this tool to determine your calorie needs: http://www.muscleandstrength.com/too...alculator.html

    then subtract 500 cals from this value so you will be losing 1 lb of fat per week while mainting most muscle mass.

    also, post up your diet and routine so we can take a look at it.

    Thanks
    according to this tool I need 4939 Calories per/day. after subtracting 500 cals I need 4439 cals which will let me lose 1 lb per week. So whatt if I subtract 1000 cals, am i going to lose 2 lbs per week?

    8:00 - My day starts with one full glass of water, then one cup low fat milk and corn flakes.

    9:00 - One cup black coffee and one spoon sugar.

    10:30 - 2 boiled eggs (white only)

    12:00 - One cup of tea with milk without sugar

    14:00 - Lunch (grilled chicken/turkey/fish) with brown breads (2-3 slices)

    15:00 - One cup of tea with milk with sugar

    17:00 - One cup of tea milk no sugar

    18:30 - One chicken Sandwich

    19:30- workout

    21:00 - Dinner with grilled chicked/fish with borwn bread

    23:00 - another tea with milk

    01:00 go to bed

    I know I have too much intake of tea but can't live without it.

    I'm a bachelor and can't cook , can i take alternate (protien) for the meals.

    yes, you can cut 1000 calories per day but start slow by subtract 200-300 cals per week until you raech 1000 cal deficit. any lower and you risk losing muscle mass. What is your workout routine? could you go to bed any earlier than 1 am. Most athletes need at least 8-9 hours of sleep per night because of the heavy stress they undergo while working out.

    The above meal plan does not look like adequate calories, look at the articles and posts on the site to construct a diet. Ensure you 5-7 small meals follow a 30/50/20 Carbs/Protein/Fat ratio. For postworkout, intake 50-60g dextrose or maltodextrin or Waxy Mazise Startch and 40g whey protein.

    do NOT subtract 1000 calories from your diet. if you do this you will potentially be under eating by 3,500 calories per week. this is going to put your body into starvation mode and in a hurry. if you're looking to lose "weight" then you can do that, but if you'd like to hold on to the lean tissue (ie. lose FAT weight only) then subtract 500.

    the calculator figures in your daily activity, therefore, when you subtract 500 that will put you at a small caloric deficit, THEN you will also burn calories (say hypothetically 500) from your workout in the day.

    (-500) from diet + (-500) from training = -1000 for the day = -7000 calories per week = 2lbs

    follow me?

    great.. yes I do follow you.

    I also want to lose my weight. My height is 173 and my current weight is 182.5 lbs which is quite high. It is suppsoed to be max 165 lbs (it used to be once ).

    Yes I want to lose the weight so shall I

    Subtract 500 Cals from the total, 500 from the workout and 500 another to lose the weight?
    I'm doing 5 days workout

    so cals burn in 5 days 1500x5=7500 and 2x1000=2000
    total 9500 per week approx 2.5 lbs per week?

    what do you recommend?

    do NOT subtract 1000 calories from your diet. if you do this you will potentially be under eating by 3,500 calories per week. this is going to put your body into starvation mode and in a hurry. if you're looking to lose "weight" then you can do that, but if you'd like to hold on to the lean tissue (ie. lose FAT weight only) then subtract 500.

    the calculator figures in your daily activity, therefore, when you subtract 500 that will put you at a small caloric deficit, THEN you will also burn calories (say hypothetically 500) from your workout in the day.

    (-500) from diet + (-500) from training = -1000 for the day = -7000 calories per week = 2lbs

    Yes I want to lose the weight so shall I

    Subtract 500 Cals from the total, 500 from the workout and 500 another to lose the weight?
    I'm doing 5 days workout

    so cals burn in 5 days 1500x5=7500 and 2x1000=2000
    total 9500 per week approx 2.5 lbs per week?

    what do you recommend?
    What donnay was sying is that you create a calorie deficit of 500 calories below your maintenance level from your diet, and increase calorie expenditure from exercise by another 500 calories, so the total deficit for the day is 1000 calories.

    Yes , if you read it again then he meant that I could go for it If I want to lose weight.

    Plus I'm doing the workout for 5 days so I'm not burning cals 7 days ...

    so to calculate it will be 1000*5=5000 Cals while
    500 cals 2 days =1000 cals.

    to total cals burn per week is 6000 cals instead 7000.
