Looks like I need to find another sugar substitute. Splenda isn't to bad, but my wife was telling me the other day she read that Splenda slows the metabolism. Bah!
Very cool. Just wrote that down and stuck it on the fridge and in my diet/activity log. That will help for sure. Actually makes me feel abit better and not so "information overloaded". Thankfully, I don't drink much so that's one less vice to kick.
How long did it take you to lose that 90lbs?
How much excersise were you getting during this diet?
It's been about a year and a half.
Currently I lift 3 days a week, and do cardio 1-2
For a good portion of the begining, say the first 30 pounds was diet alone. Staying around 2000 calories.
The next 40 were lifting 3-4 days a week, and cardio 4-5 days a week, with 30 min on lifting days, and 45-60 min on non lifting days.
Calories were up here between 2500-3000 a day
I was down to 252 at the end of the contest, but those 25 pounds were all diet, as I didn't have time to get to the gym with work and life. 1500 calories a day 5 meals a day, no cheat days.
But I put about 15 of those back on after the contest as soon as I slipped on the diet.
I'm down to 260 today, and for the last few weeks it's been 3 days a week lifting 1-2 days a week cardio. Diet is 2000-2500 calories a day, 5-6 meals.
Although my lowest "weight" was 252, i'm less body fat percentage now at 260, than i was at 252.
