Beans are great for you (:
Sure! It’s sweet & simple (:
True. Anon is only calculating their BMR, no activity. They should use this calculator: http://www.muscleandstrength.com/tools/bmr-and-daily-calorie-calculator.html
THANK YOU! Posting this because it’s important & I think a lot of people get confused when it comes to BMR.
Are you certain your eating enough? Your BMR seems very low to me. Also BMR only accounts for what you’d burn if you were to lay in bed all day. You have to account for your daily activity as well.
I’d say eat more & work out! And remember to be patient, weight loss isn’t a fast or easy process.
Yes! Well to an extent… Green tea is great for you! It has a ton of benefits. In regards to weigh loss, it helps boost and sustain your metabolism. Obviously though, to reap the benefits, you’d have to drink a lot as well as eating a healthy diet.
I’m not currently using any but, EAS lean protein 15 is what I use to use. Took 1 serving post workout.
In all honesty there is no complete right or wrong answer. Do what YOU want to do. I personally have a cheat meal probably once a week. & by cheat meal I mean pizza, cheeseburger and fries, donuts, etc. Stuff like that!
Also I don’t really “plan” my cheat meals (which is fine if you do). I come across enough situations where I just choose to have a cheat meal. For example; yesterday was my brother’s b-day so I had some cake and ice cream. Or on occasion my bf will want to go out to dinner and I’ll use a cheat meal then.
*a cheat meal should not be a binge
*a cheat meal should not turn into a cheat day
You can’t spot reduce. All you can do is eat clean & workout. Though toning your oblique muscles with some strength training may help tighten up the area (:
Keep doing what you’re doing! & don’t rely so much on the scale. Take measurements, make sure you have some before pictures, don’t weigh yourself as much, and focus on how you FEEL.
There are still days I look in the mirror and feel like I haven’t lost a single pound, so it’s nice to have those references to remind you how far you’ve come! You can pull out that old pair of jeans that don’t fit anymore, or take a peek at your “before” photos and be like “wow, I really have made progress.”
Also be patient. Weight loss can be so frustrating. In the past 3 months I’ve only lost 6lbs… which is only 2lbs a month ): At first it was real discouraging, but those little pounds do add up.
If your not seeing results in the next couple months still, only then maybe I would say it’s time to “re evaluate” what your doing.
