How long have you been on your new diet/workout plan? Have you been keeping track of your measurements? You do know new muscle weighs more than lost fat, right? and if you weighed yourself the same day as your buffet, the added weight is just food in your intestines. Why do people always associate successful health plans with numbers on a scale?

How long have you been dieting? If you really haven't lost any weight perhaps you should see a doctor.

In the famous words of the dearly departed Man Show: "Ive found a cure for obesity! It's called Stop eating so damn much!"

That's not true at all, people can have medical problems that make losing weight near impossible.

Too many negative votes, comment buried. Show the comment

That is horrible advice. Obesity shortens lifespans by many years, meaning s/he will miss a lot of memories with their friends and family. OP, most trainers will let you "cheat" every once in a while, but a buffet is taking it too far. You can't stray from your diet that much.

Reply

Actually you can stray from your diet that far ever once and awhile. It completely throws off your metabolism so it resets it and you'll lose more weight in the few days after, once you get back to your diet.

just because you eat at a buffet doesn't me you over eat.. and some buffets can be actually healthy depending on what you eat.. op doesn't deserve it.. many people don't lose weight easily

It's actually not bad advice 83. People forget that it's the can't remember your name, shitting your pants senile years at the end that you lose first.

that's what's I was going to say! One hour isn't enough. If your really that determined, you need to be going for two hours a day at least

not really it all depends on what OP is doing in the gym. And what the hell do you mean over-worked at two hours? So you mean to tell me all those UFC fighters in the gym only work out an hour a day so they won't overwork their muscles? Yeah right!

Reply

actually you are only supposed to work out with weights for an hour a day or else you do over work your muscles the rest of the time is card or in ufc case training dumbass. read some magazines or talk to some personal trainers and get facts before you speak.

^^^ not true at all. time is reallmp mp. irrelavent. its the amount of physical work that you put the muscles through. go find a professional athlete in any sport and try to find one whose trainer tosses him out of the weight room after an hour...

Not going to support anyone on this, but it depends on your muscles tolerance. If you have never had a real workout, don't just throw yourself into a three-hour intense exercisement routine. That way you will surely overwork your muscles and harmoni yourself. As for OP individually, the answer is "make it a routine". You can't exercise an hour for only a few days and expect to see results, then quit... Build it up over time. Just as with food or any other chemicals your body absorbs, your muscl

one hour is more than enough if you work out efficiently than you should be able to lose a decent amount of weight I only work out for 45 mins per day and I'm losing weight

not true 2 hours is good for loosing weight just not if ur trying to gain muscle. to do that u need breaks in between for ur muscles to rebuild. also OP must b doing mainly cardio workouts, some people try to loose weight by lifting weights and other strength workouts but that doesn't work for weightless.

Reply

Cardio alone might help you lose some, but if you combine cardio and weights it's the best work out for weight loss. With cardio, as soon as you're done you stop burning calories. With weight training, you keep burning calories after you're done.

Reply

210 -- you're wrong. cardio does spike your metabolism for a bit longer after you're done, not just while you're doing it... that's the main reason why cardio is often recommended at the beginning of a person's day. |the kid|

thanks saved me the time of writing that. I know for me it's the BMI index, if I went down to the weight I'm "supposed" to be for my height and weight I would look unhealthy.

Reply

Even BMI isn't always perfect. If you start building muscle (which is heavier than fat), BMI can put you into the overweight category. I know a guy in stellar physical shape but is "obese" partially because of muscle weight. If you're really athletic, get your body fat checked instead of BMI.

Reply

I don't. I'm dieting myself, eating mainly fruits and veggies in smoothies, with a small carbohydrate intake. Lost 13 lbs. and I'm only a month and a half into the diet. Add some cardio, and BAM!

Unicorn lady...are you in shape? I never overeat, because there is no reason to. I eat until until just before I'm full. It takes awhile for you to feel full, As far as loading yourself up with unneeded fat and grease, why would you put yourself through the torture on your body that the cholesterol and empty calories? Plus it takes awhile to create a healthy habit, so if you cheat you're breaking that habit and making it that much harder to develop a good habit. It's like quitting smoking and al

I am overweight and on a healthy eating plan and it's absolute torture. I hate healthy foods. Some are "ok" but I don't crave vegetables or grilled chicken. People are just wired differently. I can't survive without the occasional bowl of ice cream or fried chicken. It's called moderation. Every nutritionist, dietician, therapist, and personal trainer I've ever met preaches moderation. You just can't go eat all that crap 24/7. Every now and then won't hurt you.

Reply

This is my problem. I eat healthy food but it's just so bland and boring; it makes dieting pure torture for me. I eat the shit anyway cause it's good for me, but god does it lack flavor. My school cafeteria, which is where I eat most of the time because I can't afford to buy my own food, is absolutely TERRIBLE at cooking vegetables. If they aren't smothered in butter, they're just served plain, and I can't ever get to where I'm actually enjoying what I eat. I want eating to be an enjoyable

Reply

Just because the OP was at a buffet doesn't necessarily mean that everything they ate was unhealthy. There are a lot of healthy things such as salad, skinless grilled chicken, and the like at buffets. It also doesn't mean that they over ate because it is entirely possible to stop eating when one is no longer hungry, even at the buffet.

Reply

unicorn. you likely don't crave healthy foods because after years of eating unhealthy foods your body has come to crave it. likely expecting it's healthy dose of sugars and msg (otherwise labeled as "natural flavors"). you have to break the cravings for this. it's not "wired different" it's learned dependency. it is up to you to fix it if you want to loose weight.

Reply

...or I could just keep doing what I'm doing where I eat healthy almost all the time and have one good meal here and there and keep losing weight... I don't get why some of you are so anti-moderation. There's nothing wrong with enjoying tasty foods as long as you don't overdo it. Eating pizza once a month is not going to hurt you.

Oh gee, I bet the poor people who live on under $1 a day in the world would so understand your complaints. Be thankful you have food and don't exactly need to do anything to get it. Maybe you could swap places with someone who'd appreciate it and probably be more deserving of it, and perhaps oxygen? lol
