  1. Let's get rid of the narrative that you need a gym membership to get in shape, as a beginner. Just go outside. Look up beginner calisthenics, get motivated and creative.

  2. I joined 2 gyms, lifted weight's, cardio and this was in the am. Ate healthy, and did not lose a pound!!!!!

  3. I started intermittent fasting after becoming so disgusted with how I felt in my own skin. I’ve done almost all the fad diets, medications, exercise plans, gym memberships and personal trainers and had been overweight by at least 60 pounds for 2 decades. I was strict, punishing it felt in my eating but did splurge on my cheat day like a champ. In 8 months, I was down 60 pounds. I only walked my dog for 20 minutes a day, no other exercise. I want to start strength training to tone my muscles now but am AMAZED that it was all about the food I was eating. It takes discipline, sacrifice, but the pay off fees so much better.

  4. Exercise does help, but it's just part of the weight loss process. It's also about the calories you consume.

  5. You aren't "erasing" exercise by eating food. Your heart still got a workout, your muscles got stronger.

  6. I'm wondering if exercise DOES help increase our Resting metabolism. Since there is some minor damage to our muscles, bones, tendons, etc. ocurring during exercising, are more nutrients and calories are used for repairing them? I find it logical because most of the recovery happens during our sleep, and workout seems to boost our sleep quality. There must be a link between them, mustn't they?

  7. Calories in calories out. I guess if I consume less calories than I use I will be golden.

    Ok, I will drink 1500 calories worth of sugar water everyday and not eat anything else.

    Wish me luck;)

  8. I worked out for a long time but didn't get results because of a poor diet. I then found a website called Agoge Diet, finally I started seeing results

  9. My dad lost 100lbs. I visited Agoge Diet and followed their steps. I only selected food he likes and they provided me with FULL PACKET in seconds. I got 30 days DIET MEAL PLAN, TRAINING PLAN, FITNESS TIPS, and HEALTHY RECIPES as well.
