  1. Hi guys, this is my first post. I've been hitting the gym for just over a week now and now some advice. Burning approx 500cals per session. My diet before was nothing more than loads of white bread and a big dinner each day, loads of calories and consuming loads of sugar while drinking lucozade and coke. I managed to completely stop the lucozade and coke and replaced it with robinsons fruit juice. I have also cut out the bread, but replaced it with Cornflakes. I'm not sure whether this is a right move. I'm eating cornflakes for breakfast, lunch and evening snack. I am a very, very fussy eater and have a strong gag reflex with anyone I don't like the look/smell off. Can someone give me any advice on whether this is suitable. Thanks Mark
  2. Good Evening all, I have a bit of a drastic question and what better place to ask than here :) I have been thinking and thinking about how exactly calories work and just how many calories are needed for body functions. I have read that the average person needs 2500 calories a day so the body can function. So what really gets me thinking is for people who exercise and let's say they consume 2500 calories per day and then burn calories by exercising, just how does the body function without 2500 calories per day? The only thing I can think of is does the body just burn your fat that is stored in your body so it is safe for everyone unless you have zero fat because then if you burned more calories than your body needs to function the body cannot burn fat and thus I guess destroys your muscles? I just can't understand how your body is supposed to need 2500 calories to function and obviously when they are burned off and you don't get those 2500 calories a day to function then what is it all about? Sorry to be so drastic but I just overthink and study too much sometimes and it is seriously bugging me how the body functions when you are not having 2500 calories a day because of exercise etc etc etc. Thank You for reading I appreciate it so much.
  3. Beer

    Hi everyone, so I understand the first thing your liver does is destroy the alcohol before anything else in our body. Because of this, it makes losing weight extremely hard and longer because say if you did not drink alcohol your liver just destroys fat and any other nasty unwanted stuff in your body. When you drink alcohol it is sent to the liver straight away and takes ages to destroy and anything you eat comes after the hard work of the alcohol being destroyed. My question to the clever people here is do you think I could lose weight by having 2 x 500 ML cans of beer per day? My diet is very limited at the moment, I am trying so hard, exercising for 30 minutes per day, but I am an idiot and I drink 4 x 440 ML cans of beer a day. Whats happening is I am not losing weight, and I know I must sound so stupid but I have been trying so hard with my eating and exercise, ok I lost 7 pounds in a month and I am due to weigh myself in May but I feel extremely bloated as of late and I bet I have put the weight back on despite continuing to exercise and eat carefully, I think those 7 pounds were most likely just water weight as as I type this I feel so bloated it is unbelievable, something tells me my next weigh in I am going to be so angry at myself despite trying. So I will be cutting down to 2 cans a day in May as long as I can lose weight on 2 cans, but if you guys and girls tell me that even 2 cans a day are going to make me not lose weight then I'll just have to stop drinking the rubbish, because that's what it is and I know it but it's a long story why I drink I promise you. On a final note, what is with these people that seem to be able to live on takeaways everyday, big fry ups for breakfasts, crisps, sweets, chocolate and fizzy drinks throughout the day, and endless amounts of after work beer/ other alcoholic drinks and be as skinny as anything?! That really confuses me because they say "calories in vs calories out" is what weight gain/ loss is, so I just wonder and wonder haha. Thanks so much for reading everyone and all the best :)
  4. Hi, so I'm struggling to get any solid advice by online calculators as the number seems to vary so much, and although I have a step counter on, I don't feel its particularly accurate in its calorie estimates as a lot of my work involves my arms rather than actually walking. Anyways, so a little about me. I am a 19 year old female, 5ft7 and about 125lbs id guess (haven't weighed myself in a while). I currently work 16 hours a week at a stables which consists of mucking out, wheeling barrows, lifting haynets/buckets, bringing in and turning out horses etc. so pretty constant movement of some sort. The work is intense enough for me to work outside comfortably in just a jumper in the winter but not enough for me to be out of breath if that makes sense. On days where i do not work i usually aim to walk briskly on the treadmill at a slight incline for 45 mins, as well as riding/caring for my own horse and walking my dog. I dont do any intense exercise or weight training of any kind and although I'm not sitting down all day I'm not constantly on the go either. I calorie count mainly as a habit following a nearly 3 stone weight loss a few years ago, and since then I dont really know what a 'normal' amount of food is. Can anyone come up with a rough figure for me to maintain my weight? I understand it heavily depends on a variety of factors but some sites have told me as low as 1300 and i dont think i could eat that little even for a day aha! TIA :)
  5. Gym Advice Needed

    Hi All, I need some advice on loosing weight and gym work. I am an 5ft 8 male, 15.9 stone, quite chubby physique. I want to loose wait quit quickly. I have tested myself on my calorie intake and can eat easily and comfortably eat a maximum of 1700 calories a day. I have signed myself up to the local gym, so what I want to know is, in each gym session what would I ideally need to be burning off to lose weight at a decent pace, calorie wise? Would it be in my interest to lower my calorie intake even more? Thanks in advanced for all suggestions. MAWigg
