Hey, we have a thread for every other thing, How about what we've eaten?


Breakfast-......not much on breakfast. I had 3 glasses of Ice Water

Lunch- Grilled Chicken Breast, Mashed Potates, Corn, and other grilled vegetables. There was this really good cream of mushroom gravy with it.

Supper- Attempted to eat a family sized can of soup all by myself, but could only eat about a fourth of it.

Snack-Chocolate chip Granola Bar.

Breakfast - 2 small slices of canadian bacon, 2 whole eggs (scrambled), 2 whole wheat english muffins

Meal #2 - 2 pieces of grilled chicken (skinless, boneless) on stir-fry vegetables

Meal #3 - Protein smoothie (chocolate whey protein powder, raspberries, blueberries, fat-free milk, ice)

Meal #4 - Teriyaki tuna on reduced-fat Triscuits, apple

And, yes, this is pretty normal for me, except I usually have another smoothie or small meal on the day. I didn't have time to eat much today, and I had to make up for yesterday's pizza and pie cheat.

I don't know why anyone would care what. But why not.

Breakfast: Piece of whole wheat toast with a little diet butter, and a handful of almonds on my way to work. Water

Lunch: Went to Penn Station. Medium Teriyaki sandwich, small fries (their fries are really, really good), and small lemonade.

Not sure what I'm having the rest of today.


Yesterday (Sunday) - Toast and almonds for breakfast, an orange
Lunch: Turkey sandwich and some Fritos with glass of water. Two cookies

Dinner: Pasta with garlic bread. A medium mint Oreo blizzard from DG, (wow that was good) Coouple of cookies last night

I drink water all day long.

It make me so mad though, two years ago, from April 2004 until September 2004 I lost about 30 pounds, and if I could have just stayed there, it would have been perfect. But I've gained all that back over the past 16 months or so. Actually it all started 11/19/04, I started eating like a pig then. Oh well, I'll lose some over the next 6 months, not sure how I'm going to do it. Starting is the hardest part.

It's all Ron's fault though

Now I know why you were asking me all those questions at the forum party. :laugh:

Dieting is hard...REALLY hard. But if you want any pointers on what to do to help, just LMK. The first couple months usually yield the most noticable results. Right now, I'm on the verge of modifying my diet to add more protein and build more muscle, and hope to burn the last of my belly fat in the process.

Today, so far, I have had:

Meal #1 - 2 small slices of canadian bacon, 2 whole eggs (scrambled), 2 whole wheat blueberry waffles

Meal #2 - Protein smoothie (chocolate whey protein powder, red raspberries, strawberries, fat-free milk, ice)

Meal #3 - 8 oz. of extra lean ground beef on stir-fry vegetables, apple

Meal #4 - Fat free cheddar cheese on reduced-fat Triscuits, apple

Meal #5 - Protein bar, 2 small containers of nonfat yogurt

Meal #6 - 2 sticks of string cheese, natural peanut butter on whole wheat english muffin

Oh I getcha.

All of my buddies at lunch LOAD UP their salad with our school's gross salad dressing (basically straight mayo). Almost as if they are having some dressing with a little salad on the side.

I like my salad without dressing, I fell in love with the taste of it as a little kid. :laugh: I think it can taste pretty darn good if you got good green stuff.

Haha yeah, I know people like that. I put a little squirt of Thousand Island on my salad, just enough to have a little bit everywhere, but not globbed on. Sometimes, I just put the dressing off to the side and dip my salad in it.

I rarely do, in fact the last time I had any was over a year ago. Last time I was drunk at all, was ....... many years ago. I've probaby only been drunk about 4 times in my life. Got sick once, no fun really. That is about it. Plus the times I have been drunk I get even quieter so I don't need that.

So far today I've had an orange, slice of toast and a handful of almonds. And probably 45 ounces of water. Got to run - annother trip to the Restroom

I feel bad now. Everyone seems to eat healthier than me. And drink lots of water. What's up with that? I actually hate water unless it's *ice* cold. Even then I prefer sweetened ice tea or Coke. Anyway, on to today's menu...

Breakfast - bowl of Oatmeal Raisin Crisp
Morning snack - 1 Quaker Crunchy Granola Oats, Nuts & Honey bar (I highly recommend these)
Lunch - Uncle Ben's Spicy Beef & Broccoli rice bowl with water (Edit: add barbecue chips and a cup of Pepsi; Edit #2: one large blueberry muffin (dammit, I'll eat anything that crosses my path and is free!))
Afternoon snack - another Quaker Crunchy Granola Oats, Nuts & Honey bar (they come in packs of two)
Dinner - breaded chicken sandwich with seasoned crinkle cut fries and lots of ice tea

There will probably be chocolate involved at some point. There always is. ;) It's especially not helpful when one of my coworkers brings me back a boatload of authentic German chocolate. Mmmm....

I'm shooting for about 200 or so now. Since the last of my belly fat is being so stubborn, and the rest of me is ridiculously skinny in places, I've started taking in a bit more calories in order to build more muscle.

Any personal trainer that told you that needs serious work on tailoring his efforts to individual people, not just quoting the average caloric content of 1 lb of fat. Simply saying that is kinda stupid. What exactly does it mean? How fast does your body burn calories? Most importantly, how quickly do you burn calories when you're at rest? Or excersicing?

Gyron
01-30-2006, 03:26 PM
It was just a fact, had nothing to do with tailoring my workout.

She was just spouting off a fun fact.

Im actually doing quite well with mine. Haven't lost a lot of weight, but Im turning a lot of that fat into muscle, or replacing it with muscle however that works.

Your PT needs a new line. While what she says is technically true, what she didn't tell you is that the average body burns between 1800-2200 calories per 24 hours simply by existing. Heart beating, breathing, moving from place to place etc... So lets say you eat 1600 calories that day, you're at least 200 ahead, then you burn 300 calories in a 30 minute jog, you're at least 500 ahead. But that's not all, when you do aerobic exercise, your body doesn't just stop burning calories when you stop. It continues to burn calories at a faster rate for almost an hour after you stop because your body is replenishing what you lost during your workout. So lets say you burn an extra 100 calories. You're at least 600 and possibly 1000 ahead that day alone. That's the same as eating 600-1200 calorie diet. If you maintain that level, you are guaranteed to start shedding weight. The mistake people make is thinking that exercise is the fastest way to lose weight. That's a complete and total myth. The fastest way to lose is by counting calories and limiting your caloric intake. Most people can cut off over 500 calories a day simply by drinking water exclusively. All that soda, coffee, tea, and beer really makes the biggest difference. It doesn't hurt to couple it with exercise at all, but if you eat 3000 calories a day, which is actually pretty easy, it takes a TON of exercise or a superhuman metabolism to stay ahead of the curve.

Actually, it's 3500 calories. That's why a 500-calorie deficit each day is advised to lose 1 pound of fat per week. Each person's maintenance level is different depending on age, height, weight, and body fat percentage. :teach:

And all calories are not created equal.

To add onto trav's tangent, building muscle is the best way to burn fat. Keeps your resting calorie burners set to maximum.

You've been reading the Abs Diet book, haven't you? ;)

Yes, that's true. While cardio is always good, strength training keeps your metabolism revved for up to 48 hours post-workout, whereas cardio stops burning calories shortly after it's concluded. Too much cardio then starts to burn away muscle rather than fat. Also, each pound of muscle burns 50 calories a day. :teach:

I thought it was 3500 cals a pound? 3100 doesn't seem right.

I've always considered a good mixture of diet, weight lifting, and cardio to be the best way to lose weight.

Btown, did you go into a health career or something? I was thinking about it back in the day, it's pretty interesting stuff really.


Oh yeah, what I ate.

A little bit of grape juice, it tasted like puke. Milk and a small turkey sandwich for luncher. A pretty big turkey sandwich for dinner. :eyebrow: Plenty of water.

Ha, no. I keep myself pretty educated on the topic, even if I use that education rather poorly. But I've started eating pretty well the last month or so, and I've gotten back to running consistently. Now, I need to get back to lifting after a 7 month hiatus and having lost most of my muscle mass, which was at an all-time high for me.

Shade can tell you all about the particular eating habits I'm following. It seems as though he's doing about the same thing, though a little more with a little more protien and carbs than I am. It's not really a diet, as I'm eating all the damn time. It's just a much better way of eating. Nothing Earth shattering, but finally decided to actually take care of what goes into me this year.

:laugh:

I'm relatively trim, but I've still got this patch of belly fat that just won't seem to go away. It bunches up when I bend over and, to be quite honest, it disgusts me. I don't hang over my pants or anything, but it just really bothers me. I can't seem to get rid of it no matter what I do, and it's incredibly frustrating. I'm thin as a rail in some places. I have virtually no fat in my arms, chest, and hips, which makes the belly part really weird because I can see my hip bones pretty clearly.

So, yeah, maybe I'm a little anorexic. But I don't think it's an unreasonable goal to just completely flatten my stomach. I just don't get why it's taking so long to get the job done. :shrug: :(

Yeah, but I want less. It just really annoys me. It seems to be mostly in the lower belly around the midsection. I'm fairly thin in the upper belly and around my hips.

I'm driving some people crazy, too. A couple of my friends, as well as my boss and parents, are legitimately concerned about my health. I assure them I'm okay, and if anything, am healthier than I've ever been. But I look NOTHING like I did a couple years ago, so that kinda freaks them out a bit. I haven't slept well for a few years now, but now I'm so much thinner in my face it's starting to show, and some people think I'm sick. I keep telling them I'm just an insomniac, lol.

Ryan's Steak House Story

not for the faint of heart

(not my story)

Now, I know that there is a lot of embellishment that occurs on this group and I am aware that a small number of things are perhaps sheer fabrication, but I have a story to tell that is the absolute truth.

Funniest damn thing that has ever happened to me. A couple of weeks ago we decided to cruise out to Ryan's Steakhouse for dinner. It was a Wednesday night which means that macaroni and beef was on the hot bar, indeed the only night of the week that it is served. Wednesday night is also kid's night at Ryan's, complete with Dizzy the Clown wandering from table to table entertaining the little *******s. It may seem that the events about to be told have little connection to those two circumstances, but all will be clear in a moment.

We went through the line and placed our orders for the all-you-can-eat hot bar then sat down as far away from the front of the restaurant as possible in order to keep the density of kids down a bit. Then I started my move to the hot bar. Plate after plate of macaroni and beef were consumed that evening, I tell you - in all, four heaping plates of the pseudo-Italian ambrosia were shoved into my belly. I was sated. Perhaps a bit too much, however.

I had not really been feeling well all day, what with a bit of gas and such. By the time I had eaten four overwhelmed plates of food, I was in real trouble. There was so much pressure on my diaphragm that I was having trouble breathing. At the same time, the downward pressure was building. At first I thought it was only gas, which could have been passed in batches right at the table without too much concern.

Unfortunately, that was not to be. After a minute or so it was clear that I was dealing with explosive diarrhea. It's amazing how grease can make its way through your intestines far faster than the food which spawned the grease to begin with, but I digress... I got up from the table and made my way to the bathroom. Upon entering, I saw two sinks immediately inside the door, two urinals just to the right of the sinks, and two toilet stalls against the back wall. One of them was a handicapped bathroom. Now, normally I would have gone to the handicapped stall since I like to stretch out a bit when I take a good ****. But in this case, the door lock was broken and the only thing I hate worse than my wife telling me to stop cutting my toenails with a pair of diagonal wire-cutters is having someone walk in on me while I am taking a ****.

I went to the normal stall. In retrospect, I probably should have gone to the large, handicapped stall even though the door would not lock because that bit of time lost in making the stall switch proved to be a bit too long under the circumstances. By the time I had walked into the regular stall, the pressure on my *** was reaching Biblical portions. I began "The Move."

For those women who may be reading this, let me take a moment to explain "The Move." Men know exactly what their bowels are up to at any given second. And when the time comes to empty the cache, a sequence of physiological events occur that can not be stopped under any circumstances. There is a move men make that involves simultaneously approaching the toilet, beginning the body turn to position ones *** toward said toilet, hooking ones fingers into ones waistline, and pulling down the pants while beginning the squat at the same time. It is a very fluid motion that, when performed properly, results in the flawless expulsion of **** at the exact same second that one’s *** is properly placed on the toilet seat. Done properly, it even assures that the choad is properly inserted into the front rim of the toilet in the event that the **** stream lets loose at the same time; it is truly a picture of coordination rivaling that of a skilled ballet dancer.

I was about halfway into "The Move" when I looked down at the floor and saw a pile of vomit that had been previously expelled by one of those little *******s attending kids night. It was mounded up in the corner so I did not notice it when I had first walked into the stall. Normally, I would not have been bothered by such a thing, but I had eaten so much and the pressure upward was so intense, that I hit a rarely experienced gag reflex. And once that reflex started, combined with the intense pressure upward caused by the bloated stomach, four plates of macaroni and beef started coming up for a rematch.

What happened next was so quick that the exact sequence of events is a bit fuzzy, but I will try to reconstruct them as best I can. In that moment of impending projectile vomiting, my attention was diverted from the goings-on at the other end. To put a freeze frame on the situation, I was half crouched down to the toilet, pants pulled down to my knees, with a load of vomit coming up my esophagus.

Now, most of you know that vomiting takes precedence over **** no matter what is about to come slamming out of your ***. It is apparently an evolutionary thing since ****ting will not kill you, but vomiting takes a presence of mind to accomplish so that you do not aspirate any food into the bronchial tubes and perhaps choke to death. My attention was thus diverted. At that very split second, my *** exploded in what can only be described as a wake...you know, as in a newspaper headline along the lines of "30,000 Killed In Wake of Typhoon Fifi" or something similar. In what seemed to be most suitably measured in cubic feet, an enormous plug of **** the consistency of thick mud with embedded pockets of greasy liquid came flying out of my ***.

But remember, I was only halfway down on the toilet at that moment. The **** wave was of such force, and of just such an angle in relation to the back curve of the toilet seat, that it ricocheted off the back of the seat and slammed into the wall - at an angle of incidence equal to the angle at which it initially hit the toilet seat. Then I sat down. Recall that when that event occurred, I was already halfway to sitting anyway and had actually reached the point of no return. I have always considered myself as relatively stable gravitationally, but when you get beyond a certain point, you're going down no matter how limber you may be. Needless to say, the **** wave, though of considerable force, was not so sufficient so as to completely glance off the toilet seat and deposit itself on the walls - unlike what you would see when hitting a puddle with a high-pressure water hose; even though you throw water at the puddle, the puddle gets moved and no water is left to re-form a puddle. There was a significant amount of **** remaining on about one-third of the seat rim which I had now just collapsed upon.

Now, back to the vomit...

While all the ****ting was going on, the vomit was still on its way up. By the time I had actually collapsed on the toilet, my mouth had filled up with a goodly portion of the macaroni and beef I had just consumed. OK, so what does the human body instinctively do when vomiting? One bends over. So I bent over. I was still sitting on the toilet, though. Therefore, bending over resulted in me placing my head above my now slightly-opened legs, positioned in between my knees and waist. Also directly above my pants which were now pulled down to a point just midway between my knees and my ankles. Oh, did I mention that I was wearing not just pants, but sweatpants with elastic on the ankles. In one mighty push, some three pounds of macaroni and beef, two or three Cokes, and a couple of Big, Fat Yeast Rolls were deposited in my pants...on the inside...with no ready exit at the bottom down by my feet. In the next several seconds, there were a handful of farts, a couple of turds, and the event ended. Yet I was now sitting there with my pants full of vomit, my back covered in **** that had bounced off the toilet, spattered on three ceramic-tiled walls to a height of about five feet, and still had enough force to come back at me, covering the back of my shirt with droplets of liquid ****. All while thick **** was spread all over my *** in a ring curiously in the shape of a toilet seat.

And there was no ****ing toilet paper. What could I do but laugh. I must have sounded like a complete maniac to the guy who then wandered into the bathroom. He actually asked if I was OK since I was laughing so hard I must have sounded like I was crying hysterically. I calmed down just enough to ask him if he would get the manager. And told him to have the manager bring some toilet paper. When the manager walked in, he brought the toilet paper with him, but in no way was prepared for what happened next. I simply told him that there was no way I was going to explain what was happening in the stall, but that I needed several wet towels and I needed him to go ask my wife to come help me. I told him where we were sitting and he left. At that point, I think he was probably assuming that I had pissed just a bit in my pants or something similarly benign.

About two minutes later, my wife came into the bathroom not knowing what was wrong and with a certain amount of worry in her voice. I explained to her (still laughing and having trouble getting out words) that I had a slight accident and needed her help. Knowing that I had experienced some close calls in the past, she probably assumed that I had laid down a small turd or something and just needed to bring the car around so we could bolt immediately. Until I asked her, I'm sure she had no idea that she was about to go across the street and purchase me new underwear, new socks, new pants, a new shirt, and (by that time due to considerable leakage around the elastic ankles thingies) new sneakers. And she then started to laugh herself since I was still laughing. She began to ask for an explanation as to what had happened when I promised her that I would tell her later, but that I just needed to handle damage control for the time being. She left.

The manager then came back in with a half-dozen wet towels and a few dry ones. I asked him to also bring a mop and bucket upon which he assured me that they would clean up anything that needed to be cleaned. Without giving him specific details, I explained that what was going on in that stall that night was far in excess of what I would expect anyone to deal with, what with most of the folks working at Ryan's making minimum wage of just slightly above. At that moment, I think it dawned on him exactly the gravity of the situation. Then that manager went so far above the call of duty that I will be eternally grateful for his actions. He hooked up a hose. Fortunately, commercial bathrooms are constructed with tile walls and tile floors and have a drain in the middle of the room in order to make clean up easy. Fortunately, I was in a commercial bathroom. He hooked up the hose to the spigot located under the sink as I began cleaning myself up with the wet towels.

Just as I was finishing, my wife got back with the new clothes and passed them into the stall, whereupon I stuffed the previously worn clothing into the plastic bag that came from the store, handing the bag to my wife. I finished cleaning myself off and carefully put on my new clothes, still stuck in the stall since I figured that it would be in bad taste to go out of the stall to get redressed, in the event I happened to be standing there naked and some little ******* kid walked in. At that point, I had only made a mess; I had not yet committed a felony and intended to keep it that way.

When I finished getting dressed, I picked up the hose and cleaned up the entire stall, washing down the remains toward the drain in the center of the room. I put down the hose and walked out of the bathroom. I had intended to go to the manager and thank him for all he had done, but when I walked out, three of the management staff were there to greet me with a standing ovation. I started laughing so hard that I thought I was going to throw up again, but managed to scurry out to the car where my wife was now waiting to pick me up by the front door.

The upshot of all this is that I strongly recommend eating dinner at Ryan's Steak House. They have, by far, the nicest management staff of any restaurant in which I have eaten.

Meh, Shade and I were really keeping it up, but he's right: You can only post eating the same thing so many times before you just stop posting it anymore.

I ran my first timed mile in a couple years this weekend.

I ran about 3 miles to "warm up", then hopped on the treadmill. Got one out in 6:30. Not where I want to be out ideally, but a hell of a lot better than I thought I could since I really only got back to running around Xmas. I hope to have that down in the 5 range by summer (though it's unlikely I'll ever get it back into the 5:10 range I had back in the day when I used to be in real shape for various sports).

I had some egg nog creamer with mine this morning for the first time, and I thought it was kinda strong spiced, but it was pretty good.

I also had this scrambled egg mixture baked into a kinda sweet roll. it was great!!! I think it came from Chokolad (think thats how it's spelled)
