Just got back into the gym after a 2 year and 20 pound gain. Only 3 pounds lost but it's only been 2 weeks. Feel better already. I used to lift and exercise religiously for almost my whole life then the past 10 years I lost my motivation and ate all the wrong foods and, worse, started drinking.......a lot. Went from an in shape 185 pounds to a disgusting 220. While people tell me I don't look fat I know better. While I don't have this huge belly sticking out I know I'm way out of shape. Good thing is that since I used to lift so much I still have some muscle so think that's why people say I don't look that fat plus it will be easier to bring back the muscle I had. I'll wait a few months and see about posting some before and after pics. ...............maybe!

Stress is a killer. I am sticking to my diet and my work outs and the results are that while I am getting more fit, I haven't lost a pound in months. Very frustrated that I am feeling good after a workout, but nothing is happening, I'm not shrinking in the any part of my body nor am I losing weight. in fact today I was up to 217!!!!

Work stress is killing me, I am a Senior Manager of Customer Support and well there is a lot of stress in my job. A lot of stress. Been doing some reading on cortisol and I may have to quit the caffeine for a bit along with taking some rhodiola. Anyone have any input on this?

This guy's a friggin Genious! He summed it all up from start to finish! How TRUE it is, I see sooooo many of these guys that get consumed by working out that their entire life is in the gym. The only guys they hang with are other gym rats, oh and of course their best friend, the guy in the mirror. LMAO!!!

I'm still having shoulder trouble but still do leg work and some bi's and tri's. I suppose painting my house isn't helping my shoulder any. lol Which brings me to a whole new problem, I'm getting ready to put my house up for sale and am moving back to my house at my shop, in the process of moving stuff around I realized I have no place for my gym, I may be selling off some of my equipment but need my power rack and that is the problem.

Well, I decided to do some more drastic things to get myself on track. As noted, I am working my butt off for 0 results. I am increasing the level of effort for my HIIT training and getting better at it.

After reading many articles on stress I am making some changes to hopefully counteract it. First off caffeine, I love coffee, but it is not helping. It can raise cortisol levels 30% in an hour. So I will have to have some healthy shakes for my morning commute or perhaps some herbal teas. I am also adding in Rhodiola Rosea as a supplement, it is supposed to relax you and help fight off Cortisol. I am hopeful. Finally, I am not going to drink the craft beers I love for a month to see what the results are. Tired of being fat.

you work can your butt off ALL you want, but if you are over consuming calories you will not lose weight. Simple as that, people love to make it complicated....how many calories are you eating a day? Are you tracking them accurately? How did you find your caloric intake goal?

Yes, while stress does not help fat loss it wont impact you that much that you wont lose weight at all. Do not drop the coffee, bad idea...coffee is actually great when dieting as it aids in an appetite suppression (between the hot beverage and the caffeine content)....Drop the supplements, and there is no reason you cant have your beer moderately if you can fit it in your calories.

Please please watch this. Unless high cortisol levels are sustained for long periods of time, it has no detrimental effect....

Don't believe me, believe Dr. Layne

Layne norton is IMO the best in the industry, here's the problem....

most people who say their diet is good, do not track calories...theyll post what they eat, ok well how many calories is that? They'll reply i dont know I just eat really clean and no progress is being made...they always have a "clean diet"....News flash "clean foods" wont help your weight loss if you over consume them...you can get just as fat off lean chicken breast as you can chocolate cake....it comes down to portions, it's simple....download myfitnesspal and start tracking, if you already are, you need to lower your calories

I hate the utmost pleasure of spending a weekend around Dr. Layne, Ben Pakulski, and Dr. Jake Owen. I attended a weekend of seminars and at lunch with them for two days.( my major is Biochem just like Layne so they graciously invited me out after the seminar at the university of Tampa). I'm sure they were completely tired of me by the end of the weekend, but I took 12 full pages of notes from them. Each one of those guys have to be the most intellectual, cerebral, and well spoken individuals I've ever met. Not to mention they are all some of the nicest most helpful people I've ever known. I truthfully believe Layne has a lot of good things coming for him and rightfully so.
