  1. can you guys and gals recommend some easy to cook recipes? i plan on going on this diet when im out of the hospital, they got me on a 2500calorie diet but i may up it to 2700 or 2800 for a bit, then go back down at a steady pace. for starters, i suck at cooking, my best thing i can cook is fried eggs and bacon w/ toast, so i dont got much cooking under my belt yet, any advice would be great, thanks!
  2. Hiya, guys! So a few years ago in my late-teens I suffered with disordered eating, namely, eating 700-800kcal a day, purging, etc, being quite underweight. Its been a long time since then or at least, about 5-6 years, and I'm just a regular adult who has always been petite but who has the tiniest bit of squish/body-fat after lockdown that isn't normal for me and that I want to get rid of - its making me feel really unhappy in my own body. I've tried since making better choices by starting to have salad for lunches at work and still having whatever the S.O makes for dinn
  3. I'm new and here for a place to describe what I'm doing, express my thoughts about it, get some feedback, and ideally participate in a community. Areas for exploration Physical Be consistently active, following my plan. Since I'm trying to do too much, figure out what's carved in stone and where I can be flexible. Dumbbell workouts three times a week will likely be foundational. See what happens when my planned hikes and weighted pack walks collide with my new jogging habit -- do I decrease my weekly urban hike? Kick jogging down the road? Leave the backpack behind? Take
  4. 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
  5. Hi! Been doing IF for 7 days strict calorie control and macros. Day 4 woke me early with horrible stomach cramps. I ate carbs and egg with salt to resolve. Day 7 the stomach cramps came back and made me break my fast 3 hours early. Taking women MultiVits. Healthy 5"8 age 30 BMI approx 31 (Shy about weight!)

I'm not feeling much hunger pangs but the abdominal cramps is awful. I'm worried that I'm harming my body. Has
  6. Hello adventurers ⚔️ On this 18th day of April 2020, I begin my food and training log, as a way to ensure accountability! I am a girl (or woman?) in my 20’s, 5’4", and 124 lbs. I have always been physically fit — I have a black belt in taekwondo and I have run a mile in 7 min 15 seconds. However, those milestones were achieved back when I was a teenager. Throughout my college years, I lacked the time management skills necessary to balance academics and physical activity. Now that I am back home, I hope to regain my former strength and become even stronge

  8. ^^ Minor spoilers for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time ^^ About me Despite the above, I am not a boy but a man in his 40s. A man who works from home and wants to see if his dream of becoming an author might just become reality; a man who wants to find a way to increase his inadequate income; a man who doesn't want the deteriorating health that comes a desk-job; a man who wants to see if his dream of becoming a game-developer might just become a reality (is there any Earthly reason I should not succeed at both this and becoming an author?)

  9. Well, I'm still here. The weather out here has taken a turn for the awesome, and we've had a very snowy fall. I have a very interesting road ahead of me now. A substantial portion of my bandwidth is going into getting this house buying thing across the finish line. The above is the view from the window. Yes, in Colorado deer are everywhere. There are issues with the inspection, and I'm hoping the Seller can meet with me near the middle and get us across the finish line. This will be fairly vague, but I'll keep you updated with the effort. Pending any luck, I'll
  10. Why are all the recommendations online all over the place? I can't find any consistency from post to post. I'm a 49 yr old mother of 3 (who feels 29 but certainly doesn't look it!). A friend recommended carb pairing??? I dunno. That's a new one for me. She sent me to carbpairforloss which, I’ve never heard of. I'll check it out and see since she referred them and had success, but was hoping to hear from some others. Anyone got suggestions?
  11. I want to overhaul my diet. I was looking at the make-ahead lunches. For the chicken and veggies with sweet potatoes lunch, is olive oil a no no? Is olive oil a no no in my whole diet? I'm looking to lose about 15 pounds. I'm a female 138 at 5'2".

  13. Late to the party, whoops, but I did just return from vacation on Monday. I trailed off on the last challenge but don't feel terrible about it because it was insanely hectic - not the most stressed I've ever been, but definitely the most major events in a month. Plus at the beginning of the challenge I wasn't planning on the Italy work trip, and then that happened in the middle of everything. My healthy routines were thoroughly disrupted, but I still squeezed in a little exercise and some vegetables. I'm thrilled to be home, and in my own kitchen and bed again (not at the same time, obviously)
  14. In my continuing effort to reclaim the glory that was me & fitness circa 2016, I'm throwing some more spaghetti at the wall to see if I can get something to stick. Because YET-A-FREAKING-GAIN I was reminded recently (of course when waxing rhapsodic about my Nerd Fam trying to rope in a new recruit) that a: I was kind of a little badass back then, and b: I had my shit under so much control diet and exercise-wise that it was easy. So easy, I was Queen of the damn side challenges. So ... ummmm ... yeah. I AIN'T THAT ANY MORE. And on the one han
  15. Hey folks. Bardic Garlic here. Very bardic. Very garlicky. A professor. 30. I live in SE Asia after 12 years in the USA. At the end of this challenge, I will be in California for a conference. I need to get ready to dish it out. This bard of the orient is going to face the giants and the gods! (The American folks are literally giant for me. I'm 5'5 (165 cm)). To get to Asgard, I will need to get approval from each god. SACRIFICE: I sacrifice bubble tea for Odin. My replacement is black tea with no sugar. HEIMDALL of BIFROST: Eat the r
  16. Hello guys, rookie here asking for advice. I'm currently standing at 5'9ft, weighing 164 lbs, waist measurement of 34 inches and quite some stubborn body fat around my chest and belly (skinny fat build), 23 years old, male obviously. I'm trying to slim down to a waist measurement of 32 inches and possibly tone my body out. As of this writing, my current exercise regiment consists of the following: PART 1 1.) 10 jumping jacks, quick jogs in place for 10 seconds, 10 push ups, 10 body weight squats done successively three times *10 second rest 2.) 10 jumping jacks, quick jogs in place
  17. Good Morn, Noon, Eve, one and all! This nerd has a goal to obtain! To become healthier person for my family and for myself. I want to be able to play with my kids and feel good marrying the king I love; for the latter, I only have 6 months to achieve this goal. I am an extremely self-conscious Queen with many mental and physical wounds to overcome. A mother of three; to two handsome princes, and a darling princess. I weigh in around 180lbs at 5'2" tall. My goal is to lose 50lbs to get back to my pre-baby weight of 130lbs. In order to do this, I have taken upon myself t
  18. My goal is to post a daily plan here every morning, including food, goals, and fitness. Then the next day I will reflect on what actually happened and set new goals. Th 12/27 Food: Breakfast: Greek yogurt + all the coffee Lunch: Scrambled Eggs, Broccoli, Afternoon Snack: Skinny Pop, Nuts Dinner: Slow cooker chicken recipe Movement: Gym. 15 minutes treadmill, 10 minutes elliptical, 15 minutes body weight / kettlebells, etc, Personal Goals: Declutter 10 items Put away new Christmas gifts Paint hallway
  19. Hey, Nerd Fitness n00b here. One thing I've noticed, both here and in general, is that articles (and freebie PDFs) about healthy eating are always phrased around weight loss. I am well within the healthy range for BMI, and am trying to be a healthier person, not a lighter person (potentially even a heavier person, but I'm aiming for healthy first). My diet, however, is absolute garbage, and I'm at a loss as to how to fix it. What changes in most of these guides when the goals are health-oriented, as opposed to weight-oriented? Referencing the Nerd Fitness Ten Levels guide would be fine, a
  20. I want your input on whether the following diet can result in a slimmed down appearence: Breakfast: protein shake (like this one) Lunch: quinoa lentils avocado Dinner: refried beans corn tortillas black olives nutritional yeast hot sauce
  21. I haven't been here for a year, but I'm back for the sake of the challenge accountability. I want to focus on diet this time around. I've started picking some of my bad food habits back up, and since January I've regained a couple of the pounds I lost in 2016/2017. I want to lose another 15-20 pounds instead of gaining more. This challenge is going to focus on improving my eating habits and losing weight again. Specifically, I want to cut down on sugar and stop snacking between meals. I've been better about fitness than diet. I haven't really had much direction this y
  22. NightWatcher woke up, groaning and holding her head in her hands. She glanced around the cell, initially thinking she'd gotten back to the undead asylum... But that couldn't be right. This place was too shiny, and she didn't remember flying back... Everything came back at once. She'd meant to go to one of the smiths, somehow gotten to a strange library bigger than any she'd seen while she was alive, and then there was that dragon... No scales, surrounded by crystals. Which meant she was in a new prison... she glanced at the nearby bonfire and tried to warp back to the Firelink, and felt..
  23. All around us, it was as if the universe were holding its breath . . . waiting. All of life can be broken down into moments of transition or moments of revelation. This had the feeling of both. G'Quon wrote, "There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities – it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope, the death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender." The future is all around us, waiting
  24. My current goal is to lose 50 lbs, I'm down 100 since March 1st 2017. Here i will basically log my workouts and how well i think i did on my diet. So lets start with today.

Breakfast 6oz milk, pure protein bar sna
  25. Yay! Back on NF after a long absence. My long-term physical goals are still to improve my ninja-weasel shenanigans in the woods, and I remain an assassin at heart, but I've been experimenting with simple barbell workouts lately. My goal with the lifts is to feel comfortable with the form, get my numbers to the benchmark the coach describes as "sufficient to support vigorous recreational activity", and then focus on more interesting activities that put that strength to use. PRIMARY GOALS: Get my form right for the barbell squat. I’ve been screwing around with this stuff for
