    Man, just drink, have a few beers and don't get plastered all the time.

    Some of you guys really like to over think very minute things.

    I used IF to cut about 15 lbs while injured last summer. Maintenence on workout days, -20% TDEE on rest days. RPT for my workout.

    Wouldn't mind losing the 5 lbs i've gained back + a little more to to get TK shredded but I'm more focused on being active/physical therapy/maintaining what i've got/building back my legs (I lost a lot of weight there because I could only do iso leg work with the injury).

    When I was wearing bodybugg, my workouts would burn about 350 calories in a 1 hour weight lifting session.

    I'd imagine the calories spent sitting in front of a computer for an hour wouldn't be much less than that.

    I'm assuming you went from fat to still kind of fat.

    hehe lol. By your standards probably everyone here is fat :laugh:

    If you count long enough you'll eventually get anidea of what you're eating without counting every single bit of consumed food.


    I've also been doing LG/IF for a few years now, GraphicN. I like not having to worry about food all day and then pig out post training.

    Any RHETers on fitocracy?

    I would estimate ~10% by now :nodding: another 5lbs or so and I will be you last year

    Hell, may as well: http://tinypic.com/r/9knyf4/5

    Am bad at the guessing, where does rhet think I was there? No, dyel% doesn't count

    I track my intake and macros and weigh/measure etc still, I just find counting cals to be dreadful

    Yeah, about 10% sounds right. Just saiyan...you're going to have a hell of a time getting below that and preserving any muscle mass if you don't track calories.

    10% would be my guess too. Not good at this either.

    A friend of my girlfriend's is quite fat, but she exercises a lot. A bunch of crossfit, which I think is kinda a waste of time if you want to actually do weights, but it still should burn a lot of calories.

    Anyway, she's constantly saying shit like "I just have to listen to my body" and "I actually need to eat more to help me lose weight" (!).

    With a fucking straight face.

    It is so difficult for me to stop laughing.

    My BodyBugg reads roughly 1.8 to 2.2 calories per minute while I'm sitting down, completely relaxed, with a low pulse. That's about 120 calories per hour, so no.

    My typical lifting session has me burning around 400-450 calories in 1.5 hours. If you subtract the calories I would burn while not doing anything in that time, I burn an additional 250 or so during the workout ((400 + 450) / 2) - (120*1.5). Yeah, a bit technical but you get the idea.

    Yup. Truth.

    I got from 15 to 10% bf really fast, like after a month or so of cutting. My workouts were still great and I didn't have any issues on my general well being.
    Going down to 7% or wherever I ended up from there took a lot of more effort and time. I had to sleep and rest more or I would be a giant mess. Noticed problems with concentration and some lifts stalled. Also had to start doing early morning walks to lose the last fat.
    And I measured everything I ate with very calculated macros, refeeds while using a BodyBugg.

    I beg to differ, like I said, I track my intake, just not by counting every last calorie

    Portion counting, friends... There is value in using calorie counters to figure out a starting point but bodybugg etc is a little over the top IMO in terms of effort versus return.

    If I keep my intake consistent portion wise and either subtract a certain serving or increase activity, I lose weight. Weight loss stalls, drop another serving/add more activity. Putting everything into a calorie counter and quantifying my daily expended calories is unsustainable... Are you going to pay a bodybugg subscription for the rest of your life? No; at some point you have to accept that guys have been getting swole n shredded without the internet for half a century using shit simple ideas. No reason why we have to quantify every last everything down to a perfect macro split every night when I can cut or bulk largely relying on common sense.

    I wish I could have a stomach drop like jarude and remain strong. But genetics and all the damn hip and core work I do = a thick big midsection
