    Hey guys, I'm sure there are a few of us that would like to lose a few pounds.. Lately I've been using this.

    Dailyburn.com

    It tracks how much you want to lose, and creates a list of how many calories, carbs, fats, and proteins you should be taking in if you want to get to a certain weight. I've lost 10 pounds so far, and it's relatively easy. I find it easier to stick to a diet if you have something like this to keep track of things. Just thought I'd let you all know about it.

    I'm not positive, but when you sign up, they ask you what your goal is, and I believe gaining weight was one of the options.

    Just checked out the site. Looks good. I'm willing to have a healthy diet if someone would just tell me WHAT to eat.

    It's pretty simple, man.

    Stay away from processed stuff and carbs. Eat your protein, vitamins, etc.

    For a basic, simple meal plan you could do something like this:
    (meals/snacks should be spaced 2-5 hours apart)
    breakfast - cereal and fruit. use lowfat milk with the cereal and obviously choose a health(ier) cereal..like Special K, Total, Raisin Bran, etc. have as much fruit as you want.

    -OR-
    oatmeal(like 1 packet if you use instant but regular, not instant, oats are better for you), with 2 hardboiled eggs.

    mid-morning snack - something with protein. think a protein bar, or half a PB&J sandwich(on wheat)

    lunch - get your protein plus veggies. have a turkey sandwich, or chicken/ham/roast beef/whatever sandwich. Use wheat bread not white, and no mayo. Have about a cup of veggies.

    mid-afternoon snack - an energy bar or even another half of PB&J sandwich on wheat.

    dinner - protein plus veggies. chicken, baked chicken,(stay away from fried), stay away from the frozen section at your grocery store. or turkey breast, beef, etc. Chicken and turkey is obviously more lean than beef but it's all protein. If you want rice or pasta with it, go brown..as in get brown rice if you want rice, or if you want pasta get the brown pasta(it's called whole grain pasta I think? but it's definitely in the pasta aisle at your grocery store)

    Now obviously if you want to lose weight you have to limit what you eat..(as in the meal plan above) but if you aren't losing weight you can eat what suits you. Have more veggies, more fruit, more oatmeal in the morning, stuff like that.

    I'm not claiming to say this is exactly what you should do, because I am not a professional..but I have had a very similar meal plan and was losing weight from it(along with working out). If you want to get a bigger meal plan so it's not the same shit every day you can go to a dietician, although they are expensive. Maybe your gym(if you go to a gym) has personal trainers that you could meet with and they could help you with that. Some gyms offer a few free personal training sessions that you could sign up for and you'll be able to get some info from those.

    BUT if you don't have the money/time for any of that, just do the basics stated above - stay away from fast food, high carbs, processed foods, soda, sugar, stuff like that. Go fresh with your fruit/veggies/meat, and drink lots of water..atleast 64 oz per day.

    Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you are still using this site. I think I'm going to give it a go, and if any of you want to be motivators for each other I'm all for it. I need to do whatever it takes to lose some weight here, and I think something like this might to do me some good. I have new running shoes coming tomorrow, and picked up a couple supplements as well to get me going. I also purchased a camera a few weeks ago to document my progress to keep me motivated. Sometimes seeing is believing, and I know hcky21rskor told me taking pictures helped him out when he dropped all his weight. So yeah, if you guys want to add me, my public profile name is nhoffman77.

    This was something I was going to do but having to go on the computer to input everything was what broke it for me and decided I wouldn't do it. (I rarely ever get on the computer except at work and I wasn't going to litter my work time with even more crap like that)

    BUT

    there is an app, available on both the iPhone App Store and Android Marketplace called 'My Fitness Pal'. It does exactly what this site does - you start off with info about yourself and what your goals are and it will track everything you eat - calories, carbs, fat, sodium, protein, potassium, fiber, even some vitamins. You can search for the food you eat through their database which is pretty simple, OR what I like to do you can scan the barcode on the package of whatever you're eating and more times than not that item will already be in the database waiting for you to add it to your log. If you scan an item and it doesn't bring anything up, you can just add it in yourself.

    You can also add in exercising - both cardio stuff and weight lifting. It keeps track of the calories you lose if you do some cardio and there's also a good sized database of things to choose from for what cardio exercise you did. You can also put in how much water you drink per day.

    Keeping track of what you eat makes achieving your goal SO much easier whether it's losing weight or gaining weight.

    I'd recommend this app to anyone looking to either lose weight, gain weight, or just simply watch what they eat in general..being able to do all of it from your phone makes it 100x more convenient for you. I can put my breakfast in as soon as I finish, or shit even put it in before I eat if I know what I'll be eating..if I put all my food in for the day and see that I'm over my recommended calorie intake I'll know I can go exercise and know roughly how many calories I need to lose working out to balance out my daily calorie level. Using it on the phone makes it sooo easy especially with being able to scan shit - once you scan it and it correctly identifies it all you have to do is choose how many servings of it you have/had.

    If any of you decide to get this, my name on there is focusix and add me up..not sure how the friends thing works but it's always nice to have a buddy joining you on something like this.
