bossbunny, sorry to hear about your fall. I bet that did hurt.
Those vitamix blenders are AWESOME! I'm super jealous!

Thanks; nothing ice, elevation, and sleep wont help!

Not bad but I would add some protein to that!

For those who already do this the fat loss won't be much but for someone who doesn't do any of it the results can be significant.

Chances are, if you're like most people you don't have a lot of patience when it comes to dropping flab...and why should you, when you can achieve it quickly with the right approach.

With that in mind, is it really possible to drop 10 lbs in just 7 days?

Of course it is, especially if you have a fair amount of weight to lose...just follow these simple steps:

1. Ditch all the "white stuff." White breads, sugars, potatoes, cereals and even rice. (Exception: Cauliflower. It's a great choice.) These foods quickly convert to stored body fat.

2. Get to work. If you want to experience RAPID fat loss then you have to be willing to move that body. I'm talking truly intense exercise (if you're not sweating, you might as well just stop wasting your time). Fortunately, if you keep it intense, it doesn't have to be long...but some work IS required (go figure!).

3. Confuse your calories. If you just eat carrot sticks all day you're going to end up shutting down your fat-burning hormones and slowing down your metabolism; you'll gain weight in the long run. The trick is to "trick" your fat burning hormones by eating different amounts of calories each day. (And some days you need to eat a LOT more calories than others.)

4. Up your protein. Many people are eating too many carbs and not enough protein (like cottage cheese, beef, chicken, turkey, and my favorite -- protein milkshakes . Perhaps the coolest thing about protein is when you eat it, your body will use up to 30% of its calories just to digest it. That means 1000 calories of protein really equals about 700 calories. That's 300 free calories!

5. More fiber please. Many Americans have a digestive track that is loaded with "toxic waste." The reason is they aren't eating enough fiber (at least 30 grams a day) especially from sources like beans, vegetables and certain fruits. Up your fiber and you will rid your body of pounds of waste.

6. Drink like a fish. Drinking water causes you to retain water and feel bloated right? WRONG! Drinking the right amount of water helps your body burn fat and release excess water weight. Take your body weight and divide it by two. That's how many ounces you should get each day.

Hope you're better soon BB - sounds like a nasty hit. Have fun at the HTCC party

So forget 1/1/13 that was spent on the couch getting much needed rest and eating things I'd not care to discuss. So on to 1/2/13

Wed 1/2/13
Boot camp 6:00-6:45am
can't remember what we did but
I was tired and sweaty when it
was all done.
7:00am-Protein shake -one scoop whey w/coconut milk
10:00am -Chobani yogurt
1:00pm-Bob Evans Cobb Salad with French dressing(dinner size)-1 roll
5:00pm-protein bar -homemade at the market near my house -very good!

Thurs 1/3/13
6:00am -Instant oatmeal packet -Healthy or Active lifestyle Kroger brand
10:00am-chobani yogurt
1:00pm-cup German Tomato soup and tuna sandwich on whole wheat
In another hour or so I'll have another protein bar.

My work hours this week are all messed up. I worked til 9:00pm yesterday and same today. Tomorrow I'll work til 6:00 then go to a camaro meeting. I'm really trying to stop eating by 7:00. Tomorrow will be difficult because we always meet at a restaurant. I keep telling myself "make better choices".
So not a rip roaring start, but a step in the right direction. I realize I still have A LONG WAY to go, but thought I'd get your opinions. I have not had a chance to go to the store yet. When I do, I'll look for the good stuff to make the oatmeal pancakes

So what do you guys think?

I think the hot and sweaty part after yourworkout is great, your diet, not so much lol. I do see you are trying to make good choices and what you're eating isn't the worst thing but you are not eating anywhere near enough. I am not familiar with the nutritional values of the oatmeal or the salad you mentioned(french dressing is a no-no, it most likely has more cals than your whole meal) but from what I can see you can't be eating more than about 500-600 kcals daily. You should be up around 1200 or so I would think not knowing your stats. Does the tuna sandwich have mayo? If so, maybe not so good A lot of instant oatmeal packs have a good amount of sugar in them, check the ingredient list. When you get your nutrition right you should be eating about twice as much food and burning more fat. Back in post 107 I posted a recipie book that may help. Where are the fats, not the ones in the salad dressing or the roll, the good ones? Olive oil, nuts, avacardo, things like that, they are essential for fat loss and good health.

So it's a small step I really haven't had time to get to the grocery store and get what I need. I did like some of the recipes in the post you did, I just need to make them and with work hours this week it's not going to happen. Sunday should be a "quiet" day so I'll get myself organized.

I knew these weren't the best choices, but by telling you what I'm doing it will make me accountable Thanks for the input, we'll see if you like tomorrows choices any better

You will get there, little by little as I see what you eat I can make suggestions that will get you on target. It won't take long to get the hang of it, I promise lol.

Sorry you got hurt bossbunny. Take good care of it & hopefully it will heal soon.

I am not off to such a good start. Still having my morning shake & my home made mixed nuts etc trail mix snacks. I now take Amy's entres for my work lunches. If you have not tried any of her frozen entres you should. I don't know how nutritionally balanced they are, but it is not easy eating clean and gluten free. Her foods are made of organic real food ingredients (no chemicals, preservatives, etc). Yesterday the supper Mike cooked was WAY too sodium heavy, but I was tired & hungry & ate it followed by a lot of water. Today's was better (baked chicken breast with green/yellow peppers, brown rice & (the least good item) creamed corn. I didn't fuss. He gets home first & he is trying to learn to accomodate my gluten free diet. I still need to purge the house of leftover holiday treats that tempt me & I give in sometimes. I does not help that I have been rather down-in-the dumps lately. I do think I have, maybe, worked out a solution to my need for a exersize class. I will learn more about it tomorrow & see if it will work out. I will feel better once I get that going again. One step at a time I'll get back on track.

Hi all. I hope everyone doesn't get pissed at me but I feel the need to say this. If you are not meeting your weight loss goals it's your own fault. I, and many others here have often posted tips, recipies, strategies everything needed for anyone to loose weight properly yet it is not working for some, why? BECAUSE YOUR NOT FOLLOWING IT. THERE IS NOT ONE VALID EXCUSE that I have read in this and the previous weight loss threads. If you want to loose the weight, become healthy or just look good stop eating crap and move your ass, period. Think about it, is anyone holding you down and force feeding you bad food choices, no. If it is important to you, it should be and obviously is for some as you are here and posting continuously. Everytime you go to put something in your mouth pause for a second, picture my ugly ass standing over you doing this then think, do I really want to eat this and have to read another post like this, then put it down and eat something that would make me do this. So if you're sitting at your desk at work right now finding yourself ready to eat a snack, I'm watching you.

Brutal honesty is sometimes the best policy. People coddle others, like oh you are doing great, you'll see change eventually when really they need to be rethinking their habits.

Snack in 90 minutes: almonds and prunes.

Breakfast 1: 1/2 an avocado and a piece of toast (250 cal)
Crossfit
Breakfast 2: Cheat meal - CFA 3 count minis and a fruit cup (330 cal)
Snack 1: almonds and prunes
Lunch: Salad and soup - (330 cal)

Snack two and dinner - unknown but I'm leaning towards homemade cauliflower soup.

That's the training and thought process we need to develop and it won't happen overnight. I know I am stopping to think twice and although the choices are not up to your standards, it's a work in proccess. My eating habits will change, but not overnight. Thanks for all your time and efforts to help us. It is not wasted. If you change the life of one person, you've done a terrific job - thanks again. I'll post food later -I'm sure it won't be perfect.
