I eat pretty healthy & cook most meals lots of veggies & lean proteins...and get between 2-3 workouts in a week but then have moments of weakness...but not too often. Have had 15 pounds just sneak on a few pounds at a time - turning 46. Used to just "watch" for a few weeks and 5 would come off...now the needle is stuck. I'm on day 21 - and I was feeling pretty good although wanted faster results. Scale was NOT my friend today and it's depressing but I only got one workout in last week. Trying to stick with it...
Good economy meal is Turkey chili - I also buy bulk Ground Turkey and Chicken Breasts from BJ's - although they don't have No Salt Added diced tomatoes, so you always pay a little more because they only have standard sized cans of those. Beans and soups are another cheaper, yet filling meal - and I especially like those in the winter as it feels like comfort food. I made a celery root & cauliflower soup with onions and NSA Chicken Broth - it was really good!
I agree - if I don't remember to take a picture, I generally just look up the food on google and save off a picture from any recipe / image that is close to what I had. :) But I agree - it would be nice to just describe and use a default image if we don't want to picture log.
I hate mine with water...I get DB Fuel and it is good, but I like the chocolate better than vanilla. I put Coconut Milk or Almond Milk (unsweetened!) in it and then with vanilla - I add either a little frozen peaches, or frozen raspberries...also if I'm really being indulgent I add a little bit of unsweetened coconot plus pinapple. It's not quite a pina colada.....but....
on day 21 - I lost 5 pounds originally - which I thought wasn't horrible as my goal is 15-20. but this morning 3 came back on...really? I had one SOLID workout last week but didn't cheat once on the eating - it was just a busy week and difficult to get anything more than my daily stretch in. Trying VERY hard not to be discouraged. HOWEVER - I have felt more alert in the afternoons, etc. Not sure if that is the no gluten or dairy or I suspect maybe both.
I like the chocolate better than vanilla - I think the vanilla has a little more protein taste - I usually mix with fruit on that. Cost wise - if you buy a similar quality product it will be about the same. I tend to use 1-1.5 scoops instead of 2 though...with coconut or almond milk instead of water.
If you follow the ones that just come up on your program, just jump back in with whatever work out is served up that day. I tend to do "Discover" and change the workouts on days when I have less time or prefer a different workout and switch to something else. The key thing is that you're doing it....obviously you can't do "recovery" every day...I try to mix up the more aerobic intense with the strength building and then recovery in between or as an extra workout.
I love a good mojito, but I'm still in the Ignite phase...and I think my wine & Mojitos were contributing to my getting "stuck" and not losing weight. So - I'm now having Mint, Lime with ice & Club soda. It's not quite the same, but it feels good to not cheat! :)
so no one actually answered the question - which was why NOT eggs? I'm reading this as they are trying to make it simple...and cooking eggs may take a slight more minutes than making a shake. But I'm having my egg whites, onions & peppers & spinach (tossed in at the last minute) since it's one of my favorite breakfasts and follows all the rules.
Started on Monday (didn't hit finish my online prep till Wed even though I started - was disappointed I couldn't adjust the dates). BUT, I've still lost 3 pounds. I'm trying to lose 15 pounds and have just been STUCK. The Evil6 is a lot to give up - as usually even the "healthy" stuff I eat (like my steel cut oats with blueberries) is on the no no list. But I'm sticking to it for the 21 days!
I love the tracker...for tracking my nutrition. I wish these apps were combined. I type in my weight and show that I did this workout, I would love to see that added to my tracker workout progress. Or at least be able on Tracker to do a search for "Cody Tabata" class and log it simply.
you could use a hand peddle bike if you belong to a gym or do upper body work, but i agree with the other person that too much use of the foot in a cast will just cause longer term problems. Stretching and some of the things to can do seated (arm circles, punches, etc) can still get your heartbeat up but let your foot heal.
Cody's recovery video will work great to stretch out sore muscles. the recovery / with the rollers or tennis ball may be too intensive if you are that sore. but the yoga / stretching will help.
I find this is a great source for recipes:
They are not all sin-free, so sometimes you have to adjust. The quinoa spinach patties are my morning staple - but I leave out the Parmesian cheese during ignite.
Also under the LIFE - they post new recipes more frequently - and you can look at the back posts too.
Even if you are avoiding the six sins...you also have to watch your portions. They don't give exact measurements of food, but being very reasonable with the portion sizes...even of the healthiest food. Keep it up...and think of the long term goal.
