you wanna try to be ambidextrous, what happens if you pull a 127 hours and you don't know how to use your non-dominant hand? TORTURE.

I just started weight lifting again after two years of being sedentary after high school football where I was super fit. First few weeks I've seen massive gains and I lift more now than I did when I was in football( probably testosterones). Have to lose all this fat though sadly =\.

I've magically dropped about 15 pounds. Yay running. Thankfully I haven't lost a lot of strength, aka I was just getting fat. Maybe there is hope for this half marathon. Slowly pushing my mileage up, hoping to be at 5 or 6 mile days by December.

I started this diet designed by General Motors which promises to help lose 15-20 lbs in a week. Had an apple and an orange for breakfast, a few portions of watermelon for lunch and a cup of lemon tea with no sugar for lunch. It's 5 p.m now and I'm dying of hunger :( I have strong feeling that I'll be breaking the diet come dinner time.

Last week my friend and I modified are usual workout to account for the increased class hours we'll be taking starting next week. We'll still be working out the same amount of days (maybe more) but now instead of doing 2 sets at regular speed, we have changed the workout to single sets of slow reps. 4 seconds coming up with the lift, 2 second hold, and 4 second down. This modification is a challenge for our muscles compared with our workouts the last 4 months, but while my body is sore & weary after the workouts, I am already seeing and feeling gains! ^^

Yeah, that one. I broke the diet on the first day itself by having a huge dinner plus a brownie. I hate myself.

Well, a colleague said he lots 8 lbs in a week following that and I thought maybe I could try it, get to the acceptable weight for my height. It's too damn tough though. Now I'm left with a kilo of apples, a kilo of oranges and a kilo of grapes that I bought beforehand.

I don't how anyone could just suddenly go from normal eating to one day just eating fruit and drinking water. You would have to have a massive amount of will power not to eat anything else. When the diet has warnings of sudden muscle weakness, I would be a little worried. I believe in losing weight slow and steady and it is working for me so far and I can have the weekly burger and fries, or brownie and not feel bad for breaking my diet.

The key to diet isn't doing some new challenging diet for a short period of time, it's making healthier choices for life. Reducing calories taken in over time, avoiding the daily soda, etc. The most effective diets often include cheat days where you can have something you're craving, because it helps keep you on track the rest of the week.

It won't be as drastic, but it's healthier and more likely to be permanent.

I feel like a broken record on this one - people always try these stupid fad diets because they "heard it worked for X." Good for X, they don't work for most people and are usually a waste of time and a source of misery.
