Cardio for one here are some things you can do to help with your "QUOTE" exess lard "UNQUOTE"
This should help you!
Burn More Calories
Increase or double your activity level. A 30 year old man who is 5'10" and 170lb can
burn extra calories a day with these activities:
burn 25% more calories a day just by eating breakfast (ie 1200 x 25% means 312 extra calories burned for me)
burn 184 calories an hour ballroom dancing
burn 107 calories cleaning house for 30 minutes
burn 77 calories cooking for 30 minutes instead of getting take out
burn 184 calories hiking for 30 minutes
burn 92 calories bowling for 30 minutes
burn 122 calories gardening fo 30 minutes
burn 227 calories inline skating for 45 minutes
burn 204 calories jumping rope for 20 minutes
burn 138 calories pushing a power mower for 30 minutes
burn 122 calories playing miniature golf for 40 minutes
burn 82 calories doing 10 minutes of pushups
burn 102 calories running at 6.0mph for 10 minutes
burn 80 calories with 60 minutes of hot sex
burn 390 calories in a 45 minute step class
20 minutes of tai chi burns 82 calories
20 minutes of treadmill walking at 4mph and 15% incline (my favorite!!!) burns 249 calories
20 minutes of treadmill walking at 4mph and 5% incline burns 137 calories
20 minutes of beach volleyball burns 163 calories

its ok to take carbs before bed......
09-19-2005, 10:42 PM #4
I take a protein shake "always" before I go to bed

I come home around that time from the gym, maybe 10/11 pm - I take my pwo shake ~15mins after lifting, and a carb-pro meal (rice, chicken, broccoli) ~ 1hr later- and sleep like 20-30mins after that. Depends on the night and mood on when I crash.
As long as your in overall hypocaloric deficit as compared to your maintenence calories - then there's no problem. Especially carbs are important after your pwo meal on training days to aid reocovery. Depends on how your ratios (i.e. 50 C / 40 P / 20 F or 40 / 40 / 20 - just examples) are too - Just make sure your carb meals are carb-protein and NOT carb-fat

I apreciate that ketosis has no advantage, i dont want to go into ketosis anyway. Its just exess carbs do not agree with me they make me lethargic, i was just eating the wrong kinds of carbs ie white bread mainly.
I want to get he timing right so i dont just eat and go to sleep with those carbs doing nothing but sit in my gut.
Heres what i have come up with for a basic meal plan
Breakfast. Oatmeal w/ banana and 3 egg omlete
Mid morning. Cottage cheese and berrys
Mid arvo. Tuna and salad
PWO Meal. Chicken and rice
Last thing b4 bed. Protien shake
Can yall please critique!!!!

Again there is nothign wrong with carbs before bed. They will not make you fat if you are hypo caloric. The diet looks pretty good but no macro breakdown and no total cals.
09-20-2005, 06:52 PM #12
thats where i need the help i wouldnt have a clue, hey giant can you help me out on this 1?
09-20-2005, 06:58 PM #13
Basically you just need to come up with the amount in grams of Protein/Carbs/Fat that you eat at each meal. Websites like calorieking.com and fitday.com shoudl help this out.
09-20-2005, 07:11 PM #14
Hey thanx man i will get straight onto those sites.
Im a giants fan all the way from NZ

it doesnt matter one bit what time of day u eat certain foods, also carbs themselves DON'T make u fat, only excess calories
09-25-2005, 03:12 PM #20
yea i want to up the calories i will starve with that little calories. I will make those changes to the eating plan.
Go the Giants!!!

I was just about to start a thread about this. I usually get done with my workout anywhere from 1115-12. I was planning on a PWO shake and I was contemplating a little oatmeal
09-26-2005, 05:11 PM #22
Hey just a question....
When im making a caloric deficit with cardio and wieghts what should i be aiming for per day?
09-26-2005, 05:52 PM #23
Aim to eat at maitenance and let the workout do the rest. Weights and Cardio in the same day will most def take care of this. On non workout days just do cardio and decrease cals a bit thats all.
09-26-2005, 10:17 PM #24
Hey giants (and any1 else) whats your take on having milk with my protien shake? Also i noticed that you suggested cottage cheese b4 bed is that instead of the protien or with it?
09-27-2005, 07:37 AM #25
If you are using milk, make it skim. And Cottage cheese is great before bed. Just have enough of it to meet your protein needs. There's about 13g of Pro per 4oz.
