I dont want to be cut or work out in a gym everyday.

I like to play basketball and run everyday.

But what I hate is I see people eat so much and I try so hard to eat healthy... The the people that eat a lot can be skinny...I think it has somewhat to do with how tall I am.

I mean carots and apples water and milk over soda....

I just dont get it.

Is it my metabilisim? My worth ethic? the food I eat?

I am not sure.

I try my best.

I am faster than every1 I play against.

People will often say, " I didnt think he was that quick" Or, "I didnt know he was that fast".

And I know this. Bit I want to loose weight and be faster.

I am also a very good shooter because I am short so I focus a lot on my ranged game.

I can hit basically anything on 1 foot spining in a circle with a defender in my face.

And then on the drive I have the speed.

PROBLEM? Stamina.

And I can be quicker which makes me angy when I have a good defender because I know I could burn him if i was as skinny as I used to be.

In HS I was 120 pounds which is skinny....but for being short? Its really not bad.

the difference between 120 and 160 is HUGE.

IDK I am going to minny this summer...later summer for some booze cruizing...which means the shirt will be coming off and I want to lose weight before than.

Aug 1st.

You don't have to hit gym everyday. The reason those guys can eat so much and be 'skinnier' is because they most likely have more muscle. Which means that they burn more calories. The more muscle you have, the quicker your body burns energy, hence fats at times.

Don't lift everyday. Go in 2-3 times a week and try and hit everything. If you are already fast, you're only going to get faster, and you'll start enjoying basketball even more when you notice improvements from gym carrying over to your game.

delicious!

Damn man, that is a LOT of stuff to put in a drink. Sounds pretty damn good though. I shall try it when I can get all the ingredients together. A lot of people underestimate or are simply not aware the importance of having fruits and veggies that detox and help keep the body healthy so all the other stuff you put down your piehole gets used up properly. Just after my morning fast + basketball session I had 2 apples, a kiwi, half a mango, some winged and string beans with squash. Looking to add a 4-egg omelette with some spinach and another kiwi or apple + peanut butter later for a snack.

If you're getting sore knees/shins when running you should try and work in some low impact cardio. I used to run 40km a week or so (That's about 25 miles) but my knees hate it so now I'll usually go on the stationary bike or do some yoga. I know that stuff has a girly rep, but if you add in some other exercises like pushups, sit ups and other activities with dynamic resistance it really gets your heart rate up (I do DDP's yoga system) I do that, get my HR up to the 160 area, go for 45 minutes. Works out more muscle areas than just running and improves your flexibility also.

It seems to help with it being more liquid than semi-solid. It fills me up to drink both but I feel great all day long.. can't really stand to eat anything sugary after it cookies pie cake etc.. I don't usually eat them anyway but..

And my poop is great! Greatest shit's of my life come when I drink this. I go out to filaburtos for a burrito and horchata and I blow the bathroom the f*ck up! These shakes.. great shits!

Same. And once you actually start filling up on foods that DO provide solid nutrition, you do tend to lose your taste for all the sugary crap. And yeah, poop is actually a very good indicator of one's health.

i have been slacking hard lately. gonna run tomorrow morning til I PUKE then do my lower body (squats/calve raises) and then triceps + chest.

free membership, start posting

I'm very motivated!

I'm gonna start waking up earlier than usual every week, and workout till I can't go any longer. I will do this for the first 2 weeks until my body gets used to it, and then stop..... as usual.

But seriously, I just got my blood test results and they said I'm a 39 cholesterol level. But what's motivating me even more, is this chick at work telling me how skinny I am. this is the 4th time she's mentioned this so now I wanna prove her wrong. Starting tomorrow I'm gonna start to work out, try to gain back some of my old weight.

I have no gym membership.

All I have is some weights to help me curl and the perfect pushup. With that and with that alone, I'll go from 150 pds- 155 and hopefully push that to 160. My heaviest was 170, but I was in the gym for 2 hours a day, drinking milk like it was water, and eating like crazy. I was a stud back then not anymore

I'll teach her!!!

Just went on a 3 mile run and then i hit the exercise bike for a solid 30 minutes.

Had 3 scrambled eggs and 4 pieces of turkey bacon with some wheat bread and cooked veggies. (huge glass of milk too)

Big breakfast is ideal, kickstart your metabolism.

now for much smaller meals for the rest of the day.

The reason why is because if u have a go with the flow mantality and have a specific goal then it's probabaly not going to work out. People wanting to gain weight tend to overestimate how many calories they're actually eating and People trying to lose weight usually underestimate their calorie intake. I'm trying to bulk up and I suspect I'm overestimating how much I'm eating and can't really do much about it because I have school, but next week I don't and I'll consistantly be able to eat lunch, eat real meals instead of snacks during class time, etc. P.S. I only drink skim milk cause all other milk is nasty :P

I've never ever ever in my life counted calories. My goal has always been to get bigger and I've added probably 20+ pounds of muscle in the last 3 years or so.

I eat a fairly small lunch and a good amount of protein for dinner, then I lift and drink my protein shake after whatever workout I do every day. Counting calories and seeing how much i take in per day has never been a real priority of mine...in fact the only time i know how many calories I'm taking in on ANYTHING is when it says in big letters on the package how many there are lol

Just find what works for YOU and do it.

I have a fitness journal. There's not much to it, I kind of just jot down my workout that day and chat with other athletes re: training, advice, motivation, etc

Slayer: Yeah, that's the kinda hard part about it. For those of you who want a somewhat "surer" approach (although I personally didn't get any results from it), you can count calories.however,if there's one thing. I learned from reading up and my experience, you CAN build muscle on a caloric deficit AS LONG AS you eat good nutritious food.

I don't mean to keep endorsing products in here, but as long as we're talking about fitness this is one thing that i 110% recommend, whether you're tryin to lose weight, tone up or add muscle

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uINmw0smNQ8

I've talked about it on here but I got this early last year and added it to my little home gym, and it definitely gives you a good workout if you don't have enough room or money for a lot. You can do over 100 different exercises with it. If you're tryin to use it for cardio just lower the weight, and if you're tryin to add muscle then use the max weight levels. It's done wonders for me
