Default Fat Loss, revisited

"Jason Carlton" wrote in message
...
Guys, I've really become very discouraged with losing fat. I've taken
all of the advice I can for a year and a half now, but really see very
little difference.
-snip-
I've posted before, and the advice is generally "get your diet under
control." That's just it, though; I don't see how I could get it more
under control!


To lose weight, eat less.

If you need to count calories, start a food diary on
http://www.fitday.com or similar. Once you see how many calories you
consume on average, try cutting back by 250 to 500 calories per day.
That should be good for a moderate, steady weight loss of 1/2 to 1 lb.
per week.

Many of us find it easier to eat less if we keep the carbohydrates
relatively low; I know I do.

Cut out _all_ soda. Stay as close to the source of the food as
possible, e.g., vegetables fresh or fresh-cooked.

Consider cyclic eating in some form, e.g., do a web search on "Warrior
Diet" and/or "Intermittent Fasting" and give one of those approaches a
try. I've been doing the WD approach for about 5 years.

[I'd like to see YouTube of a 185 lb. man benching 400 and squatting
600. Not that it hasn't been done, but it's not very common, either.]

Some calories count more than others.


If so, they hide their effects from researchers.

Try cutting out the starch for a couple of weeks and see if that helps.


It will. If you cut the most popular foods out of your diet, you end up
eating less. That works.

Alright, so I have a few questions about starchy carbs.

Is whole wheat good or bad? I tend to eat whole wheat bread 2-3 times
a week, and whole wheat pasta maybe once a week, although not to a
large degree.

Similarly, what about oatmeal? I'll commonly eat the Quaker kind that
you cook and mix in a scoop of protein about 30 minutes before a
workout.

Is brown rice OK? I switched to brown rice as opposed to white rice,
and eat a lot of it.

Sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes? I usually eat a sweet
potato every day (in the form of chips, baked, or mashed), where I
used to eat regular potatoes once or twice a day. I'm under the
impression that it has far less carbs, and is a good source of fiber.


I'm not a diet specialist here. I really never was on a diet my whole
life, so I've no personal experience with them. In general I tend to
think that there is very little difference between various diets, but
personal preference, which I'm lacking.

But limiting yourself to some strange and exotic foods may work very
well the same way as I previously wrote. You throw away popular stuff,
so you end up eating less.

Last question. Andrzej, I've discussed things with you on here a lot
in the past, and I really don't know how to pronounce Andrzej. Is that
your name, or a handle? If it's your name, is it pronounced and-er-ZEJ
(3 syllables, with the emphasis on the last syllable)?


Unjay would be close enough for me. Two syllables. "rz" is one sound made
up of two letters, like for example "sh" in English. Polish names read
funny in English, but they sound fairly normal when you read them in
Polish. Of course English names can be a total jawbreaker if you try to
read them in Polish too.

This is fairly important to me because you explained a shoulder
routine to me that you called the "Andrzej Lift," and I've shown it to
a few others locally and called it the same thing :-) So I need to
make sure I'm giving it the appropriate name!


Damn, I thought I should remember the lift I supposedly invented, but I
do not. What was it?

The usual English mispronunciation of this name is "Andre," as in Andre
the Giant.

Not so. :-) Never heard of "net carbs"?


I heard that Krispy Kreme complained about them (they lost money due to
low carb diets).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medical...ohydrate_diets

Here is an overview of research spanning a century. You'd think that
after such a long time there should be something stronger than "it
appears". But there is none. Low carb diets seem to work a bit better
for some people with diabetes and insulin response problems. A bit
better.

Fine too. Germans used to call me that. (But why would you assume that
"as in Andre the Giant" could serve as a clarification for someone who
probably never watched pro wrestling? I googled the guy, and am still
smiling due this pan-Americanism. ;-))

Andre the giant was one of my favorite actors.


Exactly - I know nothing of pro wrestling. Here's a link to The
Princess Bride.

I haven't seen this movie, and a pro wrestler was first to jump at me
from Google. I'll try to see it some time. Thanks for a tip.

One of my all-time favorite movies. The trailer on the imdb site does
not, IMHO, do the movie justice. It's a must-see.

It's a classic. Semi-comedy...


Agreed, if you haven't seen _The Princess Bride_ you should. It's got
sword fighting, torture, miracles, pirates, and a whole pile more.
