    Re: OT: anyone interested in free personal training?

    If you guys want to use 5/3/1, I would recommend actually buying the ebook. Periodization isn't something you "sorta" do. Besides, Jim Wendler is a good guy and it's only $20.

    But really we can talk strategy all day. 90% of you will write invisible scripts and generate excuses why you can't do it. That's why we start with one singular goal: food log. If you can't do that, don't bother getting a gym membership. No offense but if it was that easy we'd all be ripped.

    Goober - I agree completely. This is going to be 85% diet for everyone here, including me. My advice just comes from losing 60 pounds over the last year, then gaining ~10 back from vacation, and losing it again to my now lowest weight of 199

    Start with the diet, then figure out your fitness goals and work from there. You can't out exercise a crappy diet.

    I need to lose a lot of weight (currently 131kg at only 6'1, which is horrendous even with my build) so this could be very useful and came along at a decent time for me. I definitely need the motivation from other people, I'm fairly useless at motivating myself. I'll start my food diary today and see where I'm at next Saturday - I will keep track of what I eat and will post it here next weekend.

    One question though: How do you deal with eating out? I travel a lot for work, sometimes for several weeks at a time, and therefore a lot of my meals are in restaurants and hotels, making it difficult to keep track of what I eat.

    Just snap a cell phone photo of your food before you eat it. Easy.

    If it starts raining a lot and that makes me run less, then maybe I'll need some complementary exercise.

    I have some questions. How long before and after running should I eat something? And what should I eat?

I had to get it corrected every second month or something and that was sorta uncomfortable, but between that I had no pain or problems whatsoever. Can strongly recommend it.

    Edit: picture of nail thingy on a nail
    I'll consider it if the nail starts misbehaving again. Thanks for the intel!

    Good idea, hadn't considered that. I also have a feeling that long work trips will be the hardest part of keeping my diet under control, I find it very easy to eat far too much when I'm eating in restaurants for days on end.

    I can recommend dabbing something like acetone (or similiar high alcohol concentration liquids) on problem area of ingrown toenails. Somehow fixed my (perhaps lesser) problem.

    Colony - You're about 7kgs higher than where I started, but you can do it! Don't try to do everything all at once, or you'll likely burn out. Take it slow, and just start with one or two things. For me, I started with cutting out soda, and didn't change anything else. Then I started lifting, etc.

    As far as going out to eat, there's a few things you can do. Most restaurants have calorie information posted these days. You could also try what I do, although it will take some getting used to. Basically I just eat one meal per day, because my cravings get really bad when I'm always around food. I just drink a bunch of coffee all day, and count calories from the cream and sugar. So by the time I eat dinner I still have 1800 calories I can eat, which opens up just about any option if someone offers to take me out hahah.

    Re: OT: anyone interested in free personal training?

    Everyone's metabolism is different. Some only eat once a day, others need to eat six times a day.

    One of my friends had diagnosed medical hypoglycemia. She even got her gall bladder removed which of course didn't treat it. I began coaching her to eat three meals a day consistently. Within 16 days she was subclinical and was considered medically "cured" of her hypoglycemia. Coincidentally, she is now going to school to be a doctor.
