Food/Exercise Log

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
After eating Nachos, Chinese and Pizza/wings for dinner the past three nights ( I only eat this way with outside influence-), a conversation with a certain someone (the influence) last night and standing in the shower this morning I decided that I really need to actively pursue some weight loss. I've always had the problem of seemingly gaining weight faster then I can loose it, I don't know if this is because of added muscle mass every time I start to work out more or if it is because I eat more when working out. Up until 3 weeks ago I was doing crunches and sit ups every morning, climbing 3 hours a week and getting in at least a couple 25 mile rides. It was just starting to do good things to my body when I stopped for whatever reason.

In the past I've put in a weak effort of recording my meals. I googled "Food log" this morning and found the Live Strong website: www.livestrong.com/thedailyplate/
At first glance this looks great, it lets you track all food intake (it even has store specific brands), exercise etc. For example, I burned 31 calories this morning shaving! I think the BMI calculator is B.S., as at 5' 11 and my build I will never weigh 178lbs (the max. weight to stay in the "Normal" range), but all of these seem to be. I'm going to stick with this for a while and see what happens...

I am sorry if I seem to be pushing this Crossfit stuff, but our Paleo Challenge at AlbanyCrossfit has yielded some amazing results.  I am talking about a lot more than just weight loss.  This is certainly worth a try.  I am about 30 days into it and I have lost 12 lbs and more importantly, I am able to train at much higher intensity levels.

You have to work at it a little and plan your food purchases.  But it's actually not that hard to do it you make an effort.

Paul,sounds like your doing great!.
Don't feel like you've got to apoligize for CF. Sooner or later everyone will be drinking the kool-aid.
We just start a 90 day Strict Paleo challenge. No dairy,no alcohol.
We were supposed to start July 1 but we went out to the CF Games and ate like crap & drank like fishes. We had a real good time.
