The largest concentration of my fat deposits lie in my obliques. The good news is I am in much better shape and feel like I have...
I just did another evaluation after week 6 and here are the results: Before: Weight: 176lbs Waist: 36" BF: 19% Max Pushups: 37 After: Weight: 176.5lbs Waist: 36" BF: 17% Max Pushups: 43 He told me my body fat was lower only in my chest and thighs, exactly the same in stomach areas. My initial goal was to get to 12% body fat but seeing the difference between 19% & 17% it is clear I'll have to go lower to lose the...
[quote=whacked;1950430]Again, you're missing the point. You are not losing weight because you eat too many calories for your level of activities, plain and simple. Fitday might overstate the amount of calories for the specific chicken breasts you buy, but chances are a drop of olive oil here, an extra oz. of Kashi cereal there etc. that you don't count more than make up for the differences. You're not losing weight quick enough => you need to eat less. That's all it...

Exercise is not nearly as effective as dieting is in that regard. If you need to be convinced further, look up Cal...

Are you using this for effect or has someone done a study on this? I take everyone's ideas/thoughts/recommendation into account. As with anything it's always better to continue learning. After doing more research I believe FitDay...

I did this calculation for you a few posts ago assuming you were 30 years old and it came to about 2300 Kcal. This means that at 2176 Kcal, you are eating too much. I would eat no more than 1800 KCal (500 less than maintenance) and do...

You probably already will do this, but this would be the number for a serving on the label multiplied by how many servings for the amount you eat. Kashi Crunch: -1 Cup (53G) -13G Sugars 2% Milk ...
