  • Diet & Exercise

    I need some help figuring out if what I am doing is going to work for what I need it to do....


    Background:

    Male, 6' 4", 300lbs. BMI of 36.4 (obese). Little to no exercise, and eat like a pig.


    Changes:

    I have begun to exercise 1hr every morning, alternating days between: chest, core, legs, DT, & cardio (full day). I do 30 min cardio in the beginning regardless of the plan for the day. I have cut my caloric & carbohydrate intake to nearly nothing, following the Scarsdale Medical Diet (approx 600cals/day), and boosted my protein count to ~75g per day. I have been following the SMD as written, to the letter for the first week, and have been eating "better" in the week prior to get my body ready. In the 2 week "keep trim" period, and planning on eating lots of lean meat, eggs, protein bread, etc. and continuing the exercise.

    Over the past 2 weeks - the first of a small diet change, the second of severe diet change, and both with vigorous exercise, I have lost 7lbs.

    Desired Results:

    A BMI in the 19's and the ability to run an 8 min mile.

    Thoughts? Opinions? Ya'll know more than I do about lifetime wellness, so please, educate me - I am too broke for a dietitian, so as so far, I have just been using internet research. I am not expecting instantaneous results, but would like to know if this plan will get me where I want to go eventually.

    How old are you? That would also help in giving you an answer.

    I would recommend taking C4 extreme before every workout. It's a metabolism booster and it can improve your muscular endurance allowing you to work out longer.


    Also what exercises do you do to target your chest, core, and legs?

    How much do you run every day? 8 min a mile isn't awful bUT you could still use some serious work. If you're trying to improve your mile time just keep running and whatever you do, avoid the treadmill.

      Remember, intaking high levels of protein like that doesn't mean you're going to drop weight. Muscle is heavier than fat. If you want to drop the weight, than cardio is the best route. Running and high intense excersises like burpees, etc help. High intensity for a short period is just as effective as running for long stretches. Be careful of excess sugars and white flour, like in most breads. Beans are a good source of protein as well and better for the body. Not to sound like a hippe, but eating too much meat isn't always good, beans and plant based proteins work just as well and are healthier

          Understood. I suppose loosing weight isn't the goal. Losing belly fat is the goal, and being able to regain some of my mobility, like running.

          Thanks for the advice!

          I am 19.

          C4 extreme......got it. I suppose I can pick some up at some health food stores?

          I run as much as possible. I may have misspoke - an 8 min mile is the goal. I cannot straight run a mile as I stand now; I haven't done cardio in, quite literally forever. Why avoid the treadmill?

          Since I started, I run 15-30mins per day; meaning I run as much as I can, then have to dial the speed back, and breathe, and repeat. Like you said - serious work is needed.

            First thing I'd do is take the BMI scale and throw it right out the window. Most healthy people (who work out with weights and develop strength) will be considered overweight to obese on the BMI scale. There are world class athletes with minimal body fat that score as obese on the BMI.

            Body fat is a much better scale than BMI. So is general fitness and VO2 max.

              If using suppliments like C4, make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Your liver and kidneys will thank you

              With running, just keep adding more and more as weeks go. This week you do 2, next week shoot for 2.5 to 3. If you want to build up speed, run in intervals, sprint 20 seconds, go half speed the next 20, sprint again, walk a few, and so on and so on.

                Be dedicated but, not obsessive on working out. In 19 years you have made some mistakes and it is not going away in a month or even a year. My wife joined a martial arts gym that does a workout routine. In one year she lost 50 pounds. That was going 5 days a week for a Spanish Inquisition style workout. She (and by she I mean we) started eating better. For me I work out 2-3 times per week with a 5K once a week. I also try to eat less. Portion control is the biggest for me. I am old enough that my metabolism is not what it used to be. I am also trying to eat more fruits and vegetables. I was bouncing between 205-210 but, now I am about 195ish. Not sure my scale is the best.

                At least you are young enough and have realized early enough that you need to get off your duff and do something.

                    Pullet, yes regular exercise can help you control your weight, reduce your risk of heart disease, and strengthen your bones and muscles and prepared you for a future physical agility test.

                    However if it’s been awhile since you've exercised regularly, It’s a good idea to talk to your doctor before starting your new exercise routine. I strongly suggest a physical with comprehensive labs; you may have health issues you are unaware of.

                    Also keep in mind sex with someone other than yourself may help you lose weight and burns about as many calories as the same amount of time spent with training or walking.

                      Also keep in mind GOOD WHOLESOME BIBLE STUDY PRAISING JESUS with someone other than yourself may help you lose weight and burns about as many calories as the same amount of time spent with training or walking.
                      LOL. I was not expecting that lul....

                      It has been awhile since I have been to a doctor in general, I think that might be a good idea. Ill also make sure to mention that last tidbit of information to my girlfriend, I'm sure she would be quite happy to join me

                        When you have time take a look at SFPD’s PAT and height / weight requirements.

                          You might try finding an active sport you enjoy. Especially if you are competitive, it's more fun to exercise with an eye on competition or an event. Triathlon, running, comunity league team sports, or the various gimmicky tough guy/weekend warrior type stuff like GoRuck, Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, etc. Just get out and move. Cut out the gas station lunches and dump the soda.

                              BTP as a suggestion, wear 5 lb ankle weights when going door to door handing out leaflets in support of California prop 60. Added weight will help you burn additional calories and help strengthen your legs.

                              Proposition 60, the Condoms in Pornographic Films Initiative, will be on the November 8, 2016, ballot in California as an initiated state statute.
                              A "yes" vote would be a vote in favor of requiring the use of condoms and other protective measures during the filming of pornographic films, as well as requiring pornography producers to pay for certain health requirements and checkups.
                              A "no" vote would be a vote against requiring the use of condoms and other safety measures during the filming of pornographic films.
