    Yeah, I eat mostly what I want, but I don’t stuff my face with junk. I drink beer when I want, I eat wings when I went. I limit maybe if have a side of fries or not or I switch to whiskey if I’m having more than a couple of beers, to keep the calories down a bit. I eat pasta, I snack on chips and queso sometimes. But a lot of meals are also grilled chicken, rice, guacamole and beans or just a steak and spinach. And I also don’t slam Oreos and donuts or Doritos, I drink virtually zero calories besides beer; I don’t drink and soda or juice, I take my coffee black. I’m 34 in a week and I’m still around 9% body fat while weighing 200lbs at 5’9, so not just a naturally thin person. I’m actually pretty thick but I’m able to stay lean while pretty much eating whatever I want.

    well i was talking in terms of the original comment of eating anything you want and then just working out more...to me anything you want isn't just large quantities you are also mixing in junk food, fast food, etc because there is no limitations...

    consuming enough calories is a lesson that most people fail to grasp and thats why so many people yo-yo diet. they starve themselves to hit a goal and then go back to eat 'normal' and gain it back. rather than a lifestyle change that can be maintained (which can include junk food just in moderation)...slow and steady wins the race

    One of the things that I learned was that if you want to have real gainz, it is amazing on how much food needs to be eaten.

    That said, I do not really restricts myself. Or rather maybe I just choose what consume is the better way. I do not really drink beer, but choose wine and scotch. No soda. No cookies or cakes. Certainly will have break, but will not sit down and eat a loaf. No chips. But if I want to have something to dip into a dip, I will. Love wings. Love fries. Love cooking with bacon fat. Will eat meat, fish, chicken, duck, rabbit, deer, etc.......

    well obviously it depends on your goals, but what you consume is vital. if you are 'smart' about it you can eat a TON without the crazy calorie totals to go with it...and if you take the time to learn how to cook and use spices, you can have 'healthy' food that taste even better than junk and can eat a ton more of it.

    Does anybody have any experience taking caffeine?

    I've been considering a tablet or a gum to offset some of the calories from coffee and soda. And frankly, I'm just sick of being forced to drink coffee or soda every day as a chore.

    You’ll understand when you turn 30. I mean, both are hard in your 30s but it’s impossible to outwork a bad diet at that point.

    Time to bring this thread back since it's almost summer aka the best time of year in my opinion.

    What goals do y'all have fitness wise?

    I have been running consistently since the pandemic with only a few breaks due to bad weather or work deadlines. I'm in the 15-20 miles range on most weeks.

    I'd like to get in between 22-25 miles per week for the next 8-10 weeks and eventually bump it up to 30+ by the end of summer.

    I was finally able to get some real dumbbells and kettle balls so do a lot of maintenance.

    I'm able to go back to the gym in early June so I figured three days of weight training.

    By July 4th I'd like to be in very good shape.

    Post-Labor Day which seems like a realistic option to start going back to the office part-time, I'd like to have the gym fully re-integrated into my routine but rarely if ever use a treadmill again (all outdoor) except in the worst parts of winter.

    Straight diet of meth... just soon as I get the veneers I’m set

    I’m kidding but anyone looking to lose weight and get fitter, start small, beginning of the pandemic I cut all (but one can) of soda and just started small with better meals and healthier ones. Then brought in walking/sit-ups/cardio and I should move to weights now.

    however just the simple changes I’m down 4 pants sizes without changing much. I look better but more importantly I feel better.
