Best weight loss program hands down: Torrid GF break up. Between the sleepness nights and loss of appetite that can last for weeks, nay months on end, you'll shed those unwanted pounds like they were cherished memories of the times you...spent together...

Not to mention the water loss from the copious tears. Copius, I tell you. That means "a lot." Aquaban may have the Good Housekeeping seal of approval, but that aint nuthin.

Oh yes, abject poverty also helps. Can't afford to eat? Well, can't afford to put on any weight.

Entendeded bouts of the flu. Yes, that too works wonders. Look into it, especially the GI type. I "shit you not" the pounds will melt away.

That is funny! I could live the same way at one time. You must be a young un'. At 40 I noticed my metabolism slowed and i started packing it on. I am 46 now. I am just a tad under 6-2 and was up to 252 last year. Was 225 this AM...almost "lean and mean" but still a few more lbs to go. :)


it took you til 40? lucky. my body rebelled on me at around 30. 5'10" and about 175. Would like to be a little bit leaner maybe. Running/lifting/other cardio and weekend climbing do a pretty good job of letting me continue to drink a few beers and not have to watch every morsel that i eat.

The important thing about changing your diet is not to cut anything out completely. Otherwise, your body will realize it has been cut off from the good stuff and go into conservation mode and start storing more fat. Tailor off your consumption slowly so that the body doesn't freak out.

You stay away from mah pig!

I took off about 10lbs from March to May. Limited myself to about 1800 calories a day on weekdays, focused on lean proteins, no animal fats at all. JML's beta on not eating late in the evening and night worked well for me too.

Combined with hangboard training, the weight loss contributed to a really good spring sport climbing season for me.

Growing a winter coat in Red Rock Canyon- December 2013.

I've just started going to the 24 hour gym after work (week 2 now) with my gym rat co-workers in addition to the outdoor excercise I get on my days off, and have lost 5 lbs., Being only 5'2", a loss of a 5 lbs. makes a good difference in how I feel ( energy level, and appearance) which is motivation enough for me to hang out at a gym with the Vegas locals at midnight. : / As far as my diet goes, I eat fairly healthy these days anyway (most of the time), but have cut down on my portion sizes of meals. I'm shooting for another loss of 5 -7 lbs, and working hard with weights to get stronger. I've never really worked out regularly at gyms during my work week, so this is a new experience, and I'm excited to see what the end result will be. Went climbing today, and felt pretty damn good! Woohoo!! : )

Dropped 20 in depth of winter when I usually eat like a bear and put on weight. Feb to late March. More fish,fruit, veges, less snacking at night. Plenty of sleep, but did NOT cut back on the beer. Miracles!

I lost 22 lbs from februrary to june. I dindn't do any exercise except climb every other day. I ran a caloric deficit.

I figured I needed about 1800 cals/day on non climbing days to maintain weight and about 2200 on climbing days to maintain weight. A lb of fat has about 3500 cals in it. I ran about a 500 calorie/day deficit and lost about a lb/week. I didn't count anything other than total calories to keep it simple. The only other thing I did was eat small meals, about 4-5 per day. Right before bed, I'd eat about 50 calories, so I could fall asleep easily.

After cutting from 176 to 154 (5 11 3/4) I was 6% body fat. Climbing improved substantially and in june I did my hardest boulder problem ever. In july, I slowly increased calories to maintain weight. Now, I'm 156 and still 6%, I've added two pounds of muscle, only from climbing.

I never wanted to think that it would make such a big difference b4, it's truly amazing what cutting weight can do.

If I were single and 21, I wouldn't be worried about gaining weight.
Got any advice for 40 and married?

You know the difference between Single and 21 and Married and 40?
At 21 and single, when you get home you look to see what's in the fridge, give up, and go to bed.
At 40 and married, when you get home you look to see what's in the bed, give up, and go to the fridge.

Mathematical!

I lost 25 lbs in the last few months. I was up to 200 lbs after my back injury last year. I'm 6'3" so I wasn't exactly over weight, but heavier than I wanted to be. I started by giving up fast food. Dropped 10 lbs easy. Then I started going back to the gym 3x week, and now I'm down to 175 :)

Similar story here (though dunno what my bodyfat percentage is).

Was 174# (5'10"/reasonably athletic build) after back-to-back 4th of July parties and I'd previously promised myself I'd never see 175#. Plus, I had a climbing trip planned for mid-September that I knew would benefit from me being lighter. I set a goal of 160# and am currently at 165# with 3.5 weeks to go.

Using the same 500 cal/day deficit idea, I've been losing 1-1.5 lbs/week (though a week's vacation in California had me gaining back a couple pounds). The two keys for me:

1) Food journal. Writing down everything I eat, along with its calories, has yielded some surprises, and has me eating better than I have in years, not that I'd been eating like crap. I eat pretty healfully, actually, but had a bit of a problem with portion control.

2) Running. (Training for a trail half marathon.) I'm averaging around 20 miles/week now, and that definitely helps burn off the calories.

Just got back from a week at the Bugaboos. We guestimated how much food we would need and came up a little bit short on the last days. Hiking and climbing for 8+ hours a day on light rations will definitely have you dropping weight fast.

Holy crap. To get to the midrange of this normal BMI scale, I'd need to have only around 150 pounds on my 5' 10" frame.

By which calculation I can conclude that, despite my incorrect assumption to the contrary, I am a fatass.

Frankly, I can't imagine weighing 150 pounds, though I suppose it would help my strength-to-weight ratio, even if i was somewhat weaker...

F! Wish we could just telport instead of doing this on the way to the next climb.

I was into bodybuilding and weighed 230.

Then started climbing,
five years later,
around 180.


Wish I never started bodybuilding.

pulling crimps at 220 sucked balls.

I find this extremely interesting, I never thought of how elevation plays a role.

I'll be heading down to summit county area for the winter so maybe I can shred a few more lbs at higher ele.

How has your roadtrip been? I'm about to start living out of my car end of sept. Haven't figured out the setup I'll be going with yet though.


Thanks again for that insight into elevation, didn't occur to me at all 'til now

Then again, I shouldn't be posting too much in here cause I'm not on a specific diet or anything either. Just been losing weight by eating a bit cleaner and trying to get out to play as much as possible.

Seems to work.

Never been able to count calories.
