Moving around more won't help much except that it makes you lose more energy, but you could just aswell eat less. So neither is required, but if you do either of them you get health benefits and can eat more and therefor get more nutrition from the food you consume and it gets easier to eat more protein and so on.israel wrote:i saked this question in a thread - but i really want to know what you think of it so :
i want to loose fat fast but......
i dont understand why they say in the velocity diet that you need to train usually and plus do walks -
i understood that HIIT is good for weight lose and cardio isnt - and here they say to do walks which is cardio ????
No, it doesn't matter, you can find people suggesting intermitting fasting with just one or two big meals around training to.israel wrote:for metabulisem aspect :
they say it smaller meals and spred them every 2 hours
so is every hour better then every 2 hours ????
Unless you're unhealthy fat I would suggest you relax somewhat and let it take more time since that will be beneficial for the end result. But the more load you carry the faster you can go down.israel wrote:its just latley i ate like a pig - a full cake before bed and 2 avocados a day and more ...... every day .........
but im really mentally strong WHEN I WANT TO - hey im vegan that takes mental strength more then just cuting on food
When you start to eat again it will be easier to get the muscles back (and the fat to..)israel wrote:but the question is if in the long term it be worth it - cause if i loss muscles then in the long term im going to gain fat
Each gram of stored carbohydrates in your muscles and liver will hold around 3 grams of water. So if you are full of food you carry more things in your stomach and intestines I guess and finally you have lots of muscle glycogen holding water as you say. When you eat less you will obviously not hold that much carbohydrates as they get used as fuel and therefor won't hold as much water and you will get lighter, even though all of it wasn't fat.andrew85 wrote:I have a lot of experience with losing weight myself. My heaviest weight was over 280lbs 4 years ago when i was 19, and my lowest was 185lbs which was this past summer. I gained weight back but i'm currently in the process of losing it again, and I've lost 16 lbs in 2 weeks and i'm down to 196lbs. I lose weight faster when i first start my diet and exercise plan, probably because i'm losing retained water from eating too much sodium.
Or shorter:andrew85 wrote:What works for me is eating about 1600-1800 kcal/day. spread between 5 meals. my meals are 2.5-4.0 hours apart. and i balance carbs/protein/fat 50/30/20 respectively. I also make sure to keep my sodium levels below 2400 mg.
It's not just that you see the muscles you have better?andrew85 wrote:This diet gives me lots of energy to workout, and I lose fat really fast. I do about 5 hours of weight training a week, and i run about 30 miles a week. I also cross-train on my rest days from running, usually on the rowing machine or exercise bike. Once i get down to my goal weight i'll increase my calorie intake to more of a maintenance level. But with this diet and exercise regiment, i average 20 lbs/month, and i actually build muscle (slowly, but at least i don't lose it). This weight loss is dependent on the fact that i stick to the diet and exercise 100%.
I'd say 1600 is too low to, he don't have to lose 20 lbs / month ..andrew85 wrote:This calorie intake is specific to my weight and body type. If you weigh significantly less than me, you may want to eat even less calories, but i wouldn't go below 1400 because your getting close to starvation levels at that point. It may sound a little tough to follow all the guidelines, what I do is come up with a meal plan that meets these requirements, and then eat pretty much the exact same thing everyday. I'm too lazy and i don't have the time to constantly balance my nutrition, so it's easier that way. also nutridiary.com is a good website for monitoring your nutrition and exercise. Hope this helps.
