    Yes I know- But I'm too lazy to get chicken and cook it. Sometimes I'll substitute canned tuna.

    Frozen bananas is a good idea. I just buy bags of frozen fruit, but think I might incorporate the bananas.

    I put as much veggies and fruit as a large salad - as much as I would eat in a meal. Plus added protein powder. This is my breakfast. I feel immediately alert and awake after I ingest this.

    I used to just get a sausage or bacon and egg sandwich like a lot of people do in the morning. Just makes you feel crappy and groggy.

    I am too lazy to read this plan to the end:)
    If you want to lose weight fast and stay fit, don’t just concentrate on weight loss exercises or a diet plan. I don't skip breakfast anymore. I start my meals with proteins and vegetables rather than diving into carbohydrates. + I attend beautyfixmedspa center for coolsculpting procedures. And of course I drink more water because it helps to boost metabolism and thus help in weight loss.

    There are so much fat loss and muscle building info out there online only rivaled by porn that I feel it's redundant to make a post about it.

    Most people's problem isn't knowledge, it's motivation. These things are incredibly easy to do one time, problem is most people cannot stick to it on a daily basis.

    I ballooned to 110kg in college from combination of discovering beer, partying instead of doing sport, and unregulated stress eating from deadlines/exams. I fought my way back to a respectable weight at 75kg and kept them off for over 10+ years now. When people asked me how I did it, they were all hoping for some magical shortcuts, and I can just see how their eyes just sort of glazed and not paying attention when I tell them it was through diet and exercise.

    The color of your carbs doesn't matter. That's a myth. There's nothing wrong with white rice and it's easier to digest.

    Also, fatties don't get carbs. Carbs are a luxury.

    Yup, seltzer water (0 carbs, 9 sugar, 0 sodium). Been drinking them for over a year. Maybe have 1 soda a month.

    I have to juice my veggies. I don't really like to eat them.

    you are doing way to many curls, I dont do curls much because I have big biceps they are my strong muscle, Ill only finish off a workout with some bicep curls

    everyone works out biceps, you should focus on chest, legs, and back, people hate doing those the biceps and triceps get work automatically when doing lifts and pulls so you shouldnt really focus on taxing them at all. just do cap off workouts at the end during push and pull days.

    I'll say it again as I believe it.

    "Diets" are built to fail. The very nature of them being a temporary thing you do to lose weight and something you will stop doing once you achieve your desired weight set you up for failure as you then return to a more normal 'diet'.

    By going on a 'Diet' and creating this calorie deficit that allows you to burn off fat you are creating a situation that is unsustainable generally. Instead what you should be doing is optimizing the calories you take it to the size you want to be and allowing yourself to get their over a longer period of time. Then once your body gets there you don't ever have to change your diet as you are eating the proper amount of calories now.

    Example:

    - you are a 6 foot male and weigh 250lbs
    - you eat 2800 calories a day
    - you want to be 200 lbs.

    DON'T

    - drop calories to 1000'ish a day which will cause rapid weight loss
    - problem is once you get to 200lbs you need to re-introduce more calories or you will continue to lose weight


    DO

    - drop calories to about 2100 a day which will cause weight loss over longer time
    - weight loss will just subside once you get to around 200lbs since that is the calories needed to sustain that weight


    The problem with doing the former and 'dieting' is you do not know what is the right amount of food or how your body will feel as you've gone from over eating and being fat to now under eating and shedding pounds and eventually you must find balance.

    By doing the latter and not former you do not have the peril of needing to ramp up your diet again to stop the weight loss. By doing the latter Your entire diet time was you adjusting to the proper amount of food you should be eating. There is not adjustment or change of diet once you hit your weight. You were eating the right amount the entire time.

    It's one of the easiest possible things to cook. Buy chicken. Marinate for a day. Throw it in the oven. Canned chicken sounds disgusting.

    I'm that lazy.

    And canned chicken is not that gross. Just plain cubes of chicken that is already steamed.

    I have been living off of Costco/Walmart roast chickens lately.

    I buy one for every day of the week (I normally stop by the store 3 times to avoid eating stale chicken), and buy bags of mixed veggies and salad kits.

    Either I steam the veggies and eat it with the chicken, or I dice the chicken into pieces and add it to the salad kit. The latter is surprisngly tasty, as Costco has some amazing salad kits with tons of variety. I will normally add pistachios or cashews to the salad in lieu of croutons for a "crunch".

    While I try and get most of my carbs through fruit/veggies, I will sometimes buy a french loaf and make a sandwich with the chicken leftovers. Nando's sells their hot sauce in grocery stores now, so I just douse the chicken in hot sauce, and grill the bread in the George Foreman.

    Aside from questionable sodium content, canned chicken isn't so bad. My only issue is that sometimes there will be pieces of grissle or fat in the can, and the texture really freaks me out.
