Meal 3- 4 ounce chicken - 1/2 cup cooked brown rice - 1/4 cup peanuts ( for fats) 425 calories
Meal 4- 4 ounce chicken - 2 hardboiled eggs (no yolk) hot sauce, soy sauce, broccoli - 400 calories
Meal 5 - 4 ounce chicken - broccoli, mushrooms, steamed - 400 calories.

Puts me right around ~1800-1900 calories. But very very clean calories. With intense workouts and the time I spend on my feet at work I should be in that Sub 500 calories range per day.

That looks pretty good and if you keep things along these lines I think you will be ok.

One thing on fats, they are not created equal, although nuts are considered a healthy fat they are not the best choice. There are a bunch of healthy fats, some of which are avacardo, olive oil, flax seed,nuts, fish (salmon) egg yokes ,egg yokes do have saturated fat but half of it is monounsaturated (good) so one or two yokes are ok. The best fats are a combination of omega 3,6 and 9. so a variety of fats is good. If you like salmon it is an excellent source of both healthy fat and protein. I eat a variety of healthy fats but almost always use Udo's Choice. it is made of seeds and nuts and is the right proportions of all 3 omega fats. The other as I mentioned is Carlson's Fish oil, it comes with an orange flavor so it's not fishy and using either of the above mentioned is a great choice.

Okay guys, I need some help of another sort. I have been after my husband for years to go to the doctor. In the 33 or so years I have known him he has NEVER been to a doctor. The only medical attention he has gotten in that time was a trip to the ER after getting a couple of brown recluse spider bites. I know, I know, classic story of guys not wanting to go to a doctor. But several issues have me concerned as well as just age. So I started trying once again to get him to go. So as another way of avoiding, he goes to a GNC store today. Depending on who he talked to there, not a terrible thing. But this is what he came home with. So what in the heck is he about to start putting in his body & how bad is it?

Ruby...it's not bad...

It's designed to raise his testosterone levels and lower estrogen levels which in theory allows him to add more lean muscle mass.

The thermogenic agents are going to increase his body temp, increase his bp and pulse.

I cycle things like this maybe 3 times a year for 2 months. I've tried a lot of different things..I prefer the MHP line. Best prices are at supplement warehouse.

Thanks. Good to know. I had no idea what he had gotten himself into. Maybe it will help. But he still needs to go to the doctor.

At the very minimum, make him get his BP checked before taking that!!

So depending on what you want will influence recommendations that I can make.
Yes, pretty happy with the way I look, but concerned because I keep losing weight without trying to. The stress has me not eating much (but I try to eat healthy food when I do), and when I do eat, I'm literally sick within an hour. I hope now that everything is final, the stress will start to go away and I can just maintain...

I would honestly throw it in a barrel. It is a blend of a few of the new "trendy" fat loss supplements that have shown very little if any results. Honestly, it's garbage. I don't see anything that's a health risk.

Stress can reek havoc on your body and mind so I will bring this up again. You should incorporate exercise and if you can fit it in especially weight training. It is a proven stress reliever. Also you should try to eat properly. If you can manage 4-5 small meals daily it may agree with you better and is the right way to eat regardless. I've been through a divorce as well and believe me it does get much better with time.

Yeah somewhere around there. When she started her "transformation" she was 196....

Thank you for your kind words. You should see her back, quads, and ass

You CAN get your arms like that bit it takes weights. Real weights...not the 10lb dumbbells. PM me if you think I can help you

Hi all. Haven't been on much, busy as hell, that's the way it is summer time in a motorcycle shop.

I see some impressive results here, "all" it takes is dedication and a plan, sounds easy huh? lol

I've been at the weights hard and am right at my personal best on most lifts for the last 5 yrs and am continuously progressing, I'm quite happy with it.

Keep it up, you will get results!!

Well I know you'd appreciate this..she is approaching a 3x BW squat.

I appreciate all the comments. The "ship" was there all along...she just needed someone to right the rudder and get it headed in the right direction. I was a very, very small part of it. It was her drive and commitment that did all the work.

To those reading, you can do it but you have to want it bad enough....more than anything. More than going out with friends, more than car shows, and if need be even more than sleep. If a single mom of twins and 4 dogs, who was obese can do it, you can too!

I'll chime in now that I'm finally having some success - working out more, eating right and just plain sick and tired of being sick and tired.
joined a gym in March and am now 20 lbs and 20 inches less than I was! Yay me!
