Embarked on a 1500 calorie a day diet.  6'2", 306 lbs at the start, already down to 301 after two days.  Racquetball is the primary form of cardio excercise.  Here's what's been on the menu the 1st two days.

(35 calories)  Chiropractic Blend Natural Greens Drink; loaded with all kinds of good greens

(375)  Turkey Bacon~Egg~Spinach Sandwich; 3 slices of TB, 2 eggs, 2 slices of cracked wheat bread, spinach.

(180)  Skim milk; two cups.

(190)  Dark Chocolate Perfect Zone Bar.

(45)  G2; one bottle.

(170)  Almond Pecan Cashew Clusters; 5 clusters, made by True North

(80)  HoneyCrisp Apple

(25)  Chiropractic Blend Reds 3000 Drink; packed with top fruit antioxidants, tastes great.

(270)  Lean Cuisine Garlic Chicken; new "steam bag".

(135)  Popcorn; half bag.

(0)  Plenty of water.

Will come back to that lineup frequently, but over the next three days I'm incorporating a 720 calorie meal from Chipotle.  Any combination always totals 1500, every day.

306 and you play raquetball. I have a hard time picturing that.

Do your knees a favor and start swimming. Best cardio around and you will be able to walk still when you are 60.

Get down to 220 play some raquet ball.

Be careful not to "over do it" too soon though. What I mean is it is better to find a happy compromise with your diet that you can keep up for a long period of time rather than going "balls to the wall" in the beginning only to go right back to your bad habits a week or two later.

If you find your self struggling I would suggest going back to eating things that you enjoy but eating much less of it and trying to be a bit more healthy about it.  For example eat ground turkey instead of ground beef, eat a chicken sandwich instead of a burger,  leave off the mayo, drink water instead of soda etc... you get the point.

Thanks for the tips and support.  Good, bad, or ugly, I will periodically update the thread.  Excited to slowly chisel away at this body.  Love racquetball, which I think is a dying sport with kids, lots of start/stop shuffling, great cardio, easy on the joints.

I agree with you in theory, but I think giving into cavings and making "deals" with our selves in diet is a slippery slope and really the path to eventually giving into impulse...

Logically and rationally you are 100% correct, but impulse is based on emotion and what we crave or feel like eating... 

So actually sticking to set diet may be more effective because it eliminates the "bargaining/rationalizing" which is a rational thought process manipulated by the impulses to meet emotional/physical needs/cravings....

especially for those that lack impulse control ability (not specifically you, but its covers...)

Mizuno,

I admire your effort and keep up your diligence and stick with your goals... and I would recommend avoiding getting into the game of "bargaining/rationalizing/exceptions"...

Great angle "MattBrot", but I couldn't have said it better myself "DL36".  It's those "deals~emotion~cravings" are what got me to all-time highs.

SUB 300 on the scale tonight; 299.5!  So, I should be 298 in the morning.  Day 4 begins tomorrow.

you know what is true based on real life experience...  I am not a dietitian, so I cannot comment on calorie intake... But I do understand the psychological part of weight loss, dieting and issues around cravings, so I can comment on that..

Beware of frauds and fakes who claim to be medical professionals and give out advice that they "cut and paste" from the internet or even worse make up on their own...

You are doing great!  keep up the good work...

You should be fine without the need for a Clinical Psychologist
or should I say some sort of two-bit counsellor.

If you can do the 1500 calorie diet than that is obviously the best way to go.  I am only saying that if you start to struggle with it than there are other options rather than just slipping back into bad habits.

Keep up the exercise as well

Why is it that the "GBP Alias" needs to come into the food and fitness starting ruining this forum again...

This guy is simply posting about the topic food and fitness and here we go with the same old "Thread killer" behavior spamming up threads to ruin it for this guy...

I mean you completely ruined this forum before and people spent hours upping threads to try to remove the traces of the senseless spamming of the "GBP Alias"...

"We will never forget"

Its time for you to STOP...

Stop ruining this guy's thread with your bullshit...

mattbrott,

dont let the "GBP/Rebelyell" alias  be a spoiler to the thread... he trolls threads and senselessly starts stuff with people constantly...  just ask anyone else in who hangs out in the food and fitness forum...

point is you and I are both united in trying to help and support Mizuno... 

Lets all just ignore the "TomFoolery" by the "Rebelyell/GBP" alias...   becasue I am sure he will chose to continue....

294 this morning, so this lifestyle change is getting results.  An app on my Droid X phone is a big help.  Every morning, I simply map out my food intake, then execute it.  Normally, I'd down a couple big bowls of cereal, but now it's like the phone is telling me, "you're done for the day".

The fact that the food items on the initial post wasn't attacked told me that I was on the right track.

60g of oats +400ml slimmed milk

Microwave for 4 and a half minutes.


Oats give you satiety and contains soluble fibre that lowers cholesterol

Mizuno,

I appologize for the "GBP/Rebelyell" spamming...  He appears to have a history of grudge with this forum and myself and has a history of a patten of trolling and spamming threads to be a nuisance..
you came here for support and advice.... 
not for the senseless rants ruining of threads that the rest of the poster in the "food and fitness" have experienced historically with this "wacko-nut-job"

I think that your strategy to calculate things out and stick with your plan sounds like it is working for you and would stick with it... better then then mindlessly/compulsively downing the bowls of cereal out of habit and finding out you have reached your calories for the day...  Your mindful and conscious eating seems like it is a key to success for you.

your food choices on the list seems pretty solid...  I also like the popcorn rather then chips or others snacks... good job...

as I said before...

"Lets all just ignore the "TomFoolery" by the "Rebelyell/GBP" alias...   because I am sure he will chose to continue...  Just like I predicted last time"

this is what you should do if you are stuck, faltering or concerned.

this is generic advice and not a whim of mine.


 consult healthcare professionals who have relevant competencies and specific training.

Because you need Lifestyle changes, and a specific plan needs to be formulated for you. It requires not only dietary advice for weight management, but also an exercise plan

The whole aim of your Lifestyle plan will be to ensure that total energy intake should be less than energy expenditure.


p.s   you will have noticed exchanges between myself and dl36,

keep out of that and focus on your goals.  It is not appropriate and dl36 should take his views about me to the  PB, rather than spoil enjoyment of the thread.

"Rebelyell/GBP" still trying to ruin this guy's thread?

Please STOP

You are killing this guy's thread with your BS...  I know it has been your pattern to put time and energy into ruining the "food and fitness" forum because you get PWNED here over and over, but Mizuno has nothing to do with your nonsense and I am asking that you STOP...

No one wants to see your posting of the "quotes that are trolling for"... 

Continuing to ruin and compulsively spam up this guy's thread with your nonsense... 

as I said before...

"Lets all just ignore the "TomFoolery" by the "Rebelyell/GBP" alias...   because I am sure he will chose to continue...  Just like he has shown on this thread"...

Keep up the good work Mizuno...
