  1. Hello all. I am using https://tdeecalculator.net/ to calculate how much I should be eating but I am unsure of what exercise level to put. I have an office job but make sure to walk at least 9k steps a day and I do bodyweight fitness 3-4 times a week. I don't know whether this makes me "sedentary" or "lightly active". I am also conflicted because I have PCOS and I don't know how exactly that affects how much I should eat or what I should eat. I was on keto a couple of years back because I had heard it was good for people with PCOS and I got pretty thin (to be fair I was
  2. First off I know that everyone says you can't build muscle and gain fat simultaneously, but would this actually work? What is it that enables muscle gain - purely protein intake or do you have to increase all macronutrients and calories too? I know this question is kinda dumb, but I was just thinking about it because I've been trying to eat at a calorie deficit for a while now but only recently started increasing my protein intake within that calorie deficit, and (this may not be true) but I feel like I am eating more protein than I used to be when I just ate whatever and at mainte
  3. Hello everyone! I am buttercupmakeup and I am not a novice when it comes to weight loss. I've actually lost 61 lbs so far, but unfortunately have been stuck for a while. I would like to take you on a journey into my back story so that all pieces of evidence can be considered! So my weight loss has been over two years of actual active weight loss. I achieved this through heavy lifting and basically keto. Well one day the platue monster decided to rear it's ugly head and has been siting guard over my coveted goal weight since that time. I am now in year three and making some changes.
  4. Hello, I am a 20 year old girl who has been training in the gym for a year now, i am 5'6", and started weighing 71,5kg as a i came back for a 1 year vacation. I currently weight 63kg, have a muscle mass of 45,8 and a Body fat percentage of 23% (last time i weight myself, but I know is approximate so i would say im around 25%). I go to the gym 4 times a week, 2 days upper body, 2 days lower body, 25min of cardio all those 4 days. I have three dogs so i keep myself active also after the gym. About my diet, is something i was very aware of at the beginning but not so much now:
  5. PACT Plan Challenge 2 "Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy and wealthy and wise" I'm continuing my plan to Put Away Childish Things (PACT) which you can read more about here. I will be continuing my daily calorie goal, taking the next step in my sugar goal, and adding in a sleeping goal which will be the big focus of this challenge. I also plan to maintain my habit of walking every day, but will not report on it in this challenge. June Goals Eat one or less servings of sweets per day - YES/NO One day per week with NO
  6. Become the Wolf Here we go again (Again again again). Last time I attempted this I tried my hand at Keto and although it worked really well in the beginning it wasn't for me. Near the end I was mentally exhausted, bitter, frustrated and found myself cheating and eating worse than I did while off the diet. Which of course brought on the feelings of guilt and failure. So here I am again, ready to push forward and become the wolf. Fierce, wild and determined. Let's see how far I get this time. The plan - Drink at least 2L of water daily - Meal plan ahead of
  7. I decided a challenge where I treat myself like a queen would probably yield great results. be strong for yourself and the people that depend on you lift 4x per week (except week 4) use the resources you already have available I have a pull up bar I never use. pull up bar play, 10 mins per week be graceful and well-rounded run/hike/cardio 2x per week burpees 3x per week: 20 per session yoga 60 mins per week take care of your regal self stay within 13,000 cals per week no more than 800
  8. I'm male, 16, 259 LBs, and at 34% Body-fat. For fat loss I am considering consuming only 1800 calories (I'd go lower but I'm a teenager) Here are the details. Cal:1,800 Carbs: 90 Grams (Excluding added sugar) Protein: 180 Grams Fat: 80 Grams (Moderate saturated fats and unsaturated fats. No trans-fats) I will also be lifting and doing moderate cardio. Please let me know if this is good or not.
  9. This challenge I have been logging my meals into MyFitnessPal. All week I have been below the calorie goal but I'm not hungry. Today I slept through breakfast (until lunch because I was out late last night) I ate lunch, did my workout a few hours later, and then ate dinner. After logging it all I didn't even get 900 calories today. On a regular day I seem to get around 1200 net calories. The thing is I feel like I am eating enough and I'm not hungry. I am trying to lose weight and I have since going primal last challenge but I am worried that I am doing harm to my body by not getting enough
  10. Hi there, I have just joined you guys. Yay! I am a female, height 154cm, weight 69kg. I am trying to lose weight. I started about 3 months ago. It has been a rocky road this far but I lost 3kgs in 3 months and only a few 8cms. It is a small amount over 3 months and the number on the scale refuses to dip below 68. I was doing resistance band routines in the morning and about 3 weeks ago started doing dumbbell (I think endurance) routines with a friend that was looking for a partner in the afternoons. I also do a 10-15 yoga (very beginning beginner,
  11. Soooooo! I am getting in on this new challenge too! Last challenge was a sort of "grand" return to these fine forums, and I had a lovely time doing it, and could not wait to sign up or volunteer as tribute for the new challenge! My goals in four parts are thus, this time, not all fitness oriented, because Summer's coming and I have art to make! 1) I have a FitBit. Time to make use of it's nifty app. I'm aiming to hit my step goal (10,000) everyday, but the goal is more to track food, water, sleep, and calories in/out. I tracked calories last challenge with a different a
  12. Hello all, I've fallen off the internet a bit, but I am clawing my way back to the forums and just in time for the 4 week challenge! I'm setting out my goals as such (from the nifty worksheet): Put House in Order (Konmari Method) 4 Weeks of Calorie Counting, goal is 1,200/day Zombie 5K Meal Plan for the week, and making one shopping day. I have already started the KonMari method of putting my house in order, but I am hoping I can finish it up in these 4 weeks. My reward to myself (another chore) is to paint my living room whe
  13. ERMGAH I AM LATE. I don't have a challenge figured, out, so I think I'll do the same thing last time. it.... kind of worked out? stemmed the upwards weight, anyway. got me back in the habit of gymming. MAIN QUEST LOSE FAT. This could be signified by either losing weight, or using fancy schmancy tracking tools (wifi scale, skulpt device, measurements, photos) to double check. * so.... actually compare photos this challenge, hmmm? Goal 1: Exercise More / Don't Break The Chain I need to do something every day. Running, TKD, going to th
  14. I'm busy, really busy. I have a lot of things that I do and that I want to do well. I'm kind of in a funny exploratory place right now, where I'm trying to figure out how to do all the things I want to do, how to do them well, and how to feel like doing my very best is enough. Maybe I am totally delusional but I'm starting to wonder if maybe it IS possible for me to DO ALL THE THINGS. let's see, ok? I mean, it feels delusional, after I could only barely check in during the last challenge. but I'm up for it. * restrict the calories last challenge remi
  15. I keep getting different calorie intake numbers. I've tried several sites. According to MFP I should be consuming less than or equal to 1200 calories a day. Other sites say 1500, some say way more. I'm so confused! Also, I am active, but I don't think it's enough to set off my calories. I'm not sure if I'm sedentary or active in lifestyle enough for a change in intake? I work out, but it's a fairly new thing that I've stepped it up a notch. How far into a workout routine change to my schedule should I change intake? Any advice will be appreciated! Thank you!
  16. Me the last two weeks: So After IRONMAN 70.3 New Orleans I slacked and ate like Kirby. Last week I got my butt in gear and hit all my workouts. This challenge I am going to keep hitting my workouts, eat appropriately, get my house work done, and stay on target. Each day I will pick a Video game character to be my goal. No races during this challenge other than a Memorial Day 5k, I may sign up for a GORUCK over memorial day weekend as well, but it will be a last minute thing.
  17. Challenge is gonna look something like this, details in the second comment below. Eat your damn vegetables already Stop eating all the calories Find balance between strength, cardio, and mobility Get shit done So I don't turn into this:
  18. Looks like I'm a day late and a dollar short for this challenge! The end of the last one was a right fizzle. What with being sick and spending so much time on the ski slopes I pretty much forgot to close it out. Not to say that I didn't have a great time--one of my best days of skiing of all time was had on the Saturday of the last weekend of the challenge! But, the season is pretty much done and I've definitely improved quite a bit, and put in a lot of time doing deep lunges down the mountain. Unfortunately, I've also practically given up on trying to keep my diet under control.
  19. When I wasn't exercising, the TDEE I got from these calculators on the sedentary setting seemed to be more or less on the nose. When I ate 1400 calories, I didn't gain or lose weight. Now that I've started working out regularly I want to know how many calories I need now, since obviously 1400 will not be enough anymore. I'm working out with moderate intensity 3 days a week, and these calculators are all giving me 1600 calories. I'm a very small person, I doubt I'm burning 200 calories in a single workout, and I think it's ridiculous that I'd burn any extra calories on the 4 days a week I'm not
  20. This is going to be my food log for 1 month. I keep a MFP account (veggiejulia, feel free to add me). However, my macros have been kinda of loosey goosey lately. Hence, I am going to do a 1 month food log here. It's only for 1 month at the moment, due to the fact that I already keep an MFP log. Calories - around 1700, up to 1800 on workout days This: Macros- Carbs - 144 g - 35% Fat - 64 g - 35% Protein - 124g - 30% Dates - February 22 - March 21 Focus for this month - Stay under 1800 calories, - Can have one free day a week where I eat 2000 calories - Stay under 145g carbs on
  21. Welcome, friend! My overall quest is still the general ‘to look good’, and to move towards this my main goals for 2016 are: Lose body fat (aiming for 12-14%) Build muscle Obviously these cannot be done at the same time, so I have to focus one one. In January I lost a bit of weight and I think I’m making progress on my body fat %, but I’m ready to try bulking. Then, hopefully, by May I’ll have seen some results and can have a three month cut before my holiday. This challenge is going to be focused around what goes in my mouth. My current problem is that I neglect diet so much. I r
  22. Intro: I joined NF a week before the April 2015 6WC started. At that point, I was five weeks into a new workout routine, and nine weeks into attempting to eat better. There are links to my introduction/origin story and my first five challenges in my sig below. Feel free to go rummage around in there. I’ve gone from 255lbs at the end of January 2015 to 209 as of right now, getting as low as 196 by challenge 4 before backsliding after a horrible flu and then cake season. It’s a work in progress. Life Quest: There is an ongoing life goal to dress like a proper grown-up adult man, in cloth
  23. I just got a scale today and used it to weigh myself and my body fat % so I could figure out what calories I should be eating in a day to lose weight. I got that I should be looking at eating 1700 cals a day as I'm not currently exercising (I plan to when I'm more confident with my food) I've bitten off more than I can chew in the past (pun not intended) and I want to make sure that what I have is achievable. Here are the deets: 5'4.5inches female 30 100.7kg 53.3% body fat 34.5% body water ( idunno what this means exactly but my scale told me so) 37.4 BMI I decided to use lightly active
  24. Should I worry about calories or not? I count calories but don't do more than biking 5 miles a day when I go home from work. I'm down with the Paleo idea, but should I count calories too? Or should I forget about counting calories as long as I'm eating Paleo? it seems like a lot of articles alude to not counting calories if youre eating paleo.
  25. I'm trying to figure out what workout plan to do for the upcoming 6-week challenge. I am already doing Starting Strength every Mon/Wed/Fri each week, and for now, it seems to leave me wanting to do more after I've finished the sets. I want to continue working on my strength training, but I also want something to do on off-days or alongside SS to burn calories, and maybe stretch my muscles in a good way. The beginner bodyweight circuit suggested by Steve seems to give me a good workout and only requires dumbbells. It actually left my legs more sore than SS, so far (I'm 280 lbs and have just f
