Alright fit, has anyone actually tried losing weight with Acai Berry?
I gained lots of weight when my parents split up, and after a year of depression and anxiety I've realized it's time to focus on my health before it gets any worse. I've recently started a diet and exercise plan and have lost 10 pounds this month. I was just wondering if there were any food tips I could use to help with the process. pic related, it's me.
go do squats faggot.
fuckable face is fuckable
Working out is a waste of time. I get paid for working out. I just graduated highschool and now I unload boxes of fishes from ships at the port.
I'm packing muscle like no tomorrow now. tl;dr get a job where you lift things for 6 hours a day and you'll hate it at first but eventually you'll be muscled.
What exercises can I do in my own house that will help me get fit? Normally I would go outside back down in NSW where it was cold and miserable like Britain, but I'm staying in QLD for a few days and it's FUCKING HOT and humid, so I'm staying in with the comfort of my air-conditioner. The guys on /k/ recommended burpees, which seem to be a pretty good option. Two questions: 1: Will most exercises done in the home with no equipment (other than a weight, I'm sure I can find something) let me loose weight or do I really just end up turning it into muscle (I hear it's a bunch of crap) 2: Is it true if you sweat more, you'll loose more weight (if so, fuck the heat outside, I'm going for a run) Pic isn't really related unless you're in the Iron Man Contest.
>2: Is it true if you sweat more, you'll loose more weight (if so, fuck the heat outside, I'm going for a run)
YES. This is true, but it's water weight so once you go back inside and replenish yourself it's all back baby.
>1: Will most exercises done in the home with no equipment (other than a weight, I'm sure I can find something) let me loose weight or do I really just end up turning it into muscle (I hear it's a bunch of crap)
That will build muscle. Strength training doesn't lose weight, it builds muscle. It damages the muscle cells, which then build back up larger. To lose weight you need to either a) let your muscles atrophy (don't do that) or b) "burn" fat.
You want to do b.

(subtract 500 cals)
this is somewhat shady. high intensity exercise increases your metabolism for a longer period of time than moderate exercise. so high intensity weight lifting or body-weight exercises can help you lose weight faster than moderate cardio
At first I assumed I was a lazy fuck who ate too much, but spending many hours walking a week and watching what I eat, it's not that bad. It would make sense for me to be overweight, I often pig out a little on nuts or chocolate, but the degree to which, what I'm consuming, isn't really enough to make me as big as I am.
Due to the unbalanced distribution of the fat I'm thinking it could be a glandular problem or something similar. I'm usually fairly drowsy, drained of energy and uncomfortable. My blood sugar level is normal. TL;DR what health problems tend to lead to metabolism problems/general weight gain.
I refuse to believe that no doctor in the area could tell you whether or not you have some kind of special endocrine disorder. What did they do/say?
You mean if you DO have a glandular disorder, then you have an excuse for being fat, and it isn't your fault after all. Then by extension, everything bad in your life that is a result of you being a lazy fat ass is also not your fault. You'll be able to continue being a worthless tub of human garbage, BUT IT'S OKAY! It's not your fault.
Just say it over and over fatty, "it's not my fault."
YES, you have a health issue: you're fat. Now, since your doctor won't give you an excuse to be fat, you're asking Internet to give you one. Good move, fatty. By which I mean, "It would be good for you if you actually moved, fatty."
You know I'd probably take you seriously if you didn't sound like one of the most immature dumbfuck school children I've ever been near.
You seem to have a ridiculous obsession with a retardedly simplistic model of personal responsibility.
That's nice fatty, but at the end of the day, you're fat and looking to blame it on a glandular problem, SO HA!
Maybe you should try our retardedly simplistic model of personal responsibility, it goes something like this:
IT IS YOUR FAULT THAT YOU ARE FAT YOU FAT PIECE OF SHIT DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT EAT LESS MOVE MORE DO SQUATZ DEADLIFTZ OATZ RRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
Does anyone have any information on this???
we already know. its a spider bite from a brow recluse (sp?)
what do all of you pussies max out at anyway?
970lb shrug, thats the only thing i do in the gym
10 minutes on the eliptical, thats the only thing i do in the gym.
440 squat 300 incline (my traps and lats are made of steel) 260 power clean
bragging rights. i mean sure i can go on about how LOL IM BETTER THAN YOU AND IT BUILDS SELF CONFIDENCE but at the end it boils down to me feeling better about myself when i can bench/squat/deadlift more than you
10 minutes posing in the mirror, that's the only thing i do at the gym
I have a lump on my neck, just under my hairline and I just found another on the right side of my neck. Hard to desribe them, but they feel similar to the glands under your jaw.
Feels like a firm domed lump under my skin rather than my skin actually being lumped. They're slightly sore to touch. What the hell are they? inb4 cancer, AIDs or you're gonna die.
same history here
a friend of mine had one who keep on growing, chirurgicaly removed or it could have cause bad thing to him (don't know much than that)
today a fellow coworker who had a same kind of "bump" there has been diagnozised with a kind of throat cancer (she was smoking like a firefighter)
so go check your doctor
LOOKS LIKE SYPHILIS.
IF THATS YOU I WOULD SOOOOOO SQUAT YOU ONTO MY PENIS!!
This ain't me. Unfortunately.
Possibly a lymph node. You are most likely fighting an infection. Check the creases between your legs and groin, your underarms, behind your knees, under your chin, behind your ears, and around your neck to find more. If it stays swollen for more than two to three weeks, go to a doctor to get it checked.
This is not something you want to mess around with, OP.
How many of you take protein supplements?
According to fit day I only get like 25% protein a day. I read that I should be shooting for 40%, and I'm not sure how I can get there without it.
It's a rule of thumb, not a scientific law.
check out page 6
this is the "recommended" value for an "average" person. However you want to interpret "average" is up to you.
I personally just take only one scoop after working out. That's 3 scoops a week.
>>482518 >This is in KGs, which are half a pound.
1 Kgs = .5 lb? so if I weigh 80 Kgs, it means I weigh 40 lbs? Thanks for explaining that so well.
Oh I'm not OP. I don't take protein supplements...I just try to eat enough to get around 100 grams of protein...which is around 2/3 of my body weight...so in between the 1x shit and the 2000 calorie shit.
So then how do you know it works? What if you're just wasting calories or eating too much or gaining excess weight because the protein isn't digested as protein? Like I said, too much protein just causes me to fart and it smells like shit...
the point of whey protein isn't really to "supplement" your RDA protein needs. It's quick absorption and easy to prepare. I'm sure you can easily fulfill your needs with regular food. No one takes whey because they can't get it elsewhere, but a couple of gulps for 20g of protein is pretty convenient.
I recently started growing a goatee again and was wondering, how many of you use straight or safety razors, as opposed to electric or disposable/cartridge types.
Any tips on where to get a good safety or straight razor would be handy as well.
I've heard that. When did you start using a straight razor and how long did it take you to learn to use it?
do you use the shaving foams?
I lol'd at OP's pic.
learning to use the razor took under a week, its not as hard as everyone makes it out to be
what IS hard, is honing properly and learning to strop well
im still working on those.
What kind of exercise would you recommend someone from /b/ to get rid of a pot belly? Picture is tangentially related.
http://exrx.net/Aerobic/AerobicGoals.html >The ACSM recommends to target a weekly exercise expenditure of approximately 1000 kcals a week (e.g. 3 sessions of 300 Calories or 4 sessions of 200 Calories) (ACSM 1995). See Calorie Expenditure Calculator. >Review of the scientific literature suggests that moderately intense aerobic activity needs to be performed most days of the week to bring about significant fat loss. Some sources recommend brisk walking progressing to 45 minutes or more daily. Other authorities recommend working up to 60-90 minutes of daily physical activity for weight loss. >The USDA recommends at least 60 to 90 minutes of daily moderately intense physical activity while not exceeding caloric intake requirements to sustain weight loss in adulthood. About 60 minutes a day may be needed to prevent weight gain. (USDA 2005). >Alternating weight bearing with non-weight bearing exercises every other day may be recommended to minimize the repetitive orthopedic stresses of exercising daily. See Overtraining. The combination of aerobic and anaerobic exercise may utilize more fat than either type of exercise alone. See Fat Loss.
