I've been going to the gym, and I like to commute with my bike, but unfortunately, up here in the fabled Canadas it's getting a little too cold to be out on a bike. I'm hoping to add some Yoga into my routine.

I wish I wasn't so freakin' sick, I wanna get back in the gym.

What do other people do in the gym? I focus on big movements as I only really care about strength/weightloss:

First this:

Now this:
http://stronglifts.com/5x5/

(Though I don't do it as described I usually AMRAP the last set of each exercise and I've tacked on Dips and (assisted) pullups)

The first time I deadlifted over my own bodyweight was pretty cool, because I'm not a little guy. I've (slowly) lost about 30 pounds so far.

Also, I don't suggest doing sit-ups and crunches, it's a bad movement for yer back. Yer Boy Dr. Stuart McGill:

I believe in taking care of myself, and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now.

I recently started doing the Slow-Carb diet from Tim Ferriss' Four Hour Body book, and it's pretty crazy how well it works in terms of shedding body fat.

I'm a "very skinny" guy, but I was slowly gaining belly fat as I got older (36), even with tons (relatively speaking) of aerobic exercise (biking everywhere).  On this diet, after a few months, I can see my abs.  And I've been measuring with body fat calipers, so the results are not imagined.

It seems like carbs are to blame for fat gain, all tied into blood sugar levels and hormone responses.  This diet is easy to stick with, because you eat lots of fat, protein, veg all week, and then MUST eat carbs all day one day per week to reset hormone levels.  So, Saturday potluck parties are just fine, or pizza night, or whatever.

I'm also working out 2x per week with Gorilla Strength Bands, following the Four Hour Body protocol for maximum muscle gains.  I'm getting stronger (pulling more resistance each week), but besides the abs, whatever muscle growth I'm experiencing has been subtle.

Yeah, diet is really the hot secret to losing fat. I'm following the (Your body-weight(lbs) *10) for calories goal, then tracking protein, as I found it was the best way to prevent feeling like crap after working out, I shoot for my target weight(lbs) as grams of protein, so ~200 grams of protein per day. I've lost ~30lbs so far.

I just took a look at the scale and realized I need to start counting calories again. That seems to be the only way to go in my book, if you take in less calories than you burn in a day you lose weight. I may also end up going for the 100 situps and 100 pushups thing if I can remember to do it every day.

I've recently read a lot of modern research in this area.

Calorie reduction WILL cause you to lose weight, but the latest studies show that you can lose muscle and actually GAIN fat by doing this.  Your weight goes down on the scale, but that's all muscle lost, and you're actually gaining fat.  This all has to do with how your hormone levels change when your body goes into starvation mode.  It's pretty complicated.

Calories in, calories out is coming closer to being debunked as a myth.

In my case, I made one dietary change, as a mostly-vegan for 10 years:

I normally ate rice, beans, and veg at lunch and dinner.  I replaced the pile of rice on my plate with a half pound of fatty meat.  I replaced oatmeal at breakfast with four eggs and fatty sausage.

That definitely doesn't result in fewer calories per day.  I'm eating way more calories than I used to.  But my body fat is melting away (according to actual measurements with calipers).  I've "lost" only a few pounds according to the scale, but the calipers tell a different story (I'm losing fat and gaining muscle).

Well, when you eat as many calories as me, its at least a factor. Idk I'll have to read more on it. I thought they said people on low calorie diets ended up living longer right?

I was walking a mile or two every night for like 2-3 weeks (about a month ago), but then I got the flu and haven't started walking since then.

I think it's about eating much more than you need vs just eating enough. Obese people will definitely have more health problems. Reduction diets are mostly about reducing carbs but still eating all the calories that your body needs.

I want to work out but I can't get enough food to gain wait. I'm a waiter and the fall is our slowest season. I basically only eat 1 600-1000cal meal a day. With birdies.
