Please share the recipe. Would like to give it a try. Have all the equpment mostly.

 

I've made this playlist of low carb sweet recipes

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL95z9TMxng-13dpHVDhnS_uY4jkiMJzVJ

 

For sweetner I use either this or this. Stevia is 1/4th of sugar substitute but has a slightly bitter aftertaste. Erythritol is 1:1 and closest you'll find that tastes like sugar. 

 

Also dark chocolate and almond flour. You can also use 90% Lindt.

Not that hard if you make your own stuff with sugar substitutes like Erythritol or Stevia. Grab a cheap OTG oven, some almond/coconut flour, eggs, cream cheese and some dark chocolate and you'll be making sweet a*s stuff that you can eat for days with no sugar guilt. I've been on a sugar/carb free diet for over a year and the sweet craving has actually disappeared completely. I just make sugar free cheese cakes and chocolates bars with coconut ganache at home so I don't feel like eating the sugary sh*t they sell in stores.

 

How's the sugar/carb free lifestyle working out for you.

Pretty good actually. I lost 10 kilos in a year, which were actually the last 10 kilos I needed to lose for my height, which are usually the most stubborn kilos. Plus better mental clarity, reduced appetite, no sugar craving, not sleepy during the afternoon etc. Only downside is that you have to pretty much cook everything you eat by yourself. Practically every food item here in the restaurants is loaded with carbs in the form of refined atta, white rice and sugars/MSG. On the upside, it'll make a decent cook out of you so you can impress people with your juicy steaks and homemade chicken tikkas and paneer makhnis :P

I personally managed to drop 14 kgs by simply changing my dinner to only soup and salad and started drinking black coffee instead of the regular one.

This one

Pretty basic but gets the job done.

 

The best part about low carb diet is it doesn't ask you to eat in moderation like other diets or drop your daily calorie below maintenance which eventually destroys your metabolism if you don't workout. As long as you don't eat carbs you can go ham with stuff like butter chicken, ghee fried scrambled egg, deep fried pork chops, make rice out of cauliflower and eat 2 plates full of mutton biryani made from that rice. If your daily MBR is 2000 Kc you can eat 2000 Kc per day and still lose weight.

Guys, what's a good pre workout and a good mid afternoon snack ? Don't want to gorge on biscuits and stuff, trying loose belly fat.  Been going to gym and get hunger pangs like crazy when I'm doing cardio or post workout.

 

I go to gym in the lunch time (12), and have lunch immediately after at 1.  Have breakfast around 8/8:30.  Get cravings while working out or mid afternoon around 4/4:30.

Guys

How to lose fat without losing Muscle.I am kinda getting frustrated here.

When i eat less i lose fat, muscle and strength ,when i  eat more i get big along with fat .

I also tried cutting carbs,.

 

 

Run, run, run, run.

To say in simple terms, do 80% cardio and 20% weights to maintain muscle mass.

Keep your diet high in protein, obviously.

 

You can't have both without exercise.

I did say last eleptical post, but I didn't think I would be able to better that last 50 minute reading.

So increased another level and it's a 575 calorie first exercise.

This time had to take 6-7 breaks of 12-15 seconds each to drink a sip of water and also when I felt like puking though.

I started running from Sunday. Very hard to sustain even light jogging. It take 45 minutes+ to complete 5 km. 

However, feels very good. I feel fresh and energetic the whole day. I just hope I am able to sustain this for long. Never done any sizable physical activity in my life.

^^ 575 calories on an elliptical in 50 mins  :O  What were your settings ? That's awesome, hope you've not stretched yourself to the point of injury !

Level 11 manual setting (same resistance all the time) from the very start (switched to level 12 for 15-20 minutes maybe)

And average comes to 50 cycles per minute.

Maximum is level 15.

 

No, apart from feeling like throwing up a few times while doing - no bodily fatigue, did some calf, knee and light upper body exercises exercises after it along with 100 bicycle crunches.

Watch out for heel pain and lower back pain, got myself some lousy pain by over exerting myself in the beginning.  Eden I went back, I took it nice and slow.  Mild walking, brisk walking and then jogging.  For me it was important I worked out for 30 mins every weekday, not three died/distance covered !

I'll keep that in mind. There is some pain but not in the heels or lower back. People always say that it hurts a couple of days and then subsists. I'm kinda going off of that.

I would say it never ever gets easier, keeps getting difficult everyday and first few days there's great motivation and fresh energy as well.

 

What was exerting you in 5 KM's will exert you in 10 KM's or you ll cover 5 KM's in 20 minutes.

 

and it ll still hurt and actually more.
