Preventing weight loss.. (Read 345 times)


Old , Ugly and slow

    I always run with out eating and I am still fat.

    Are you lifting weights.

    first race sept 1977 last race sept 2007

     

    2014goals   1300  miles  , 190 pounds , deadlift 400 touch my toes

      I used to smoke.  Didn't eat a lot.  Was super skinny.

       

      I now run, eat more, and am less skinny.  I tend to run on an empty stomach too most the time.  I can assure you it doesn't always lead to weight loss if you counteract it with enough food later.

       

      I guess its different for everyone, I quit smoking, started running and lost 30 pounds.

          yeah I am guessing that could be the cure.

            Tom, running is the only type of work out I do on an empty stomach, I run 2x a week but I try to be active everyday (compensating for sedentary job AND commute), 1day weights/strength training, Tabata the remaining 2-3days, sometimes sprints. Again, we are all different.

            Body Step is  perhaps the most devastatingly effective calorie burning workout I've done on a regular basis.. I wanted to improve my coordination and sense of rhythm... but mainly, it was a ton of fun! And made me eat, eat, eat.  Alas, no longer fits my schedule.

              I can run 100 MPW and still gain weight (fat) ... You just are not focussed enough on Bacon and Doughnuts ... Beer and Brats ... Ice cream and pizza ... Did I mention beer?

                Well, man, let's not neglect Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, Pisang Goreng and Kadaif! Can easily up the calories intake by a few 1000's on any of those, no blinking. I actually quite like Dubbelbock, as it's called here, but my favorites are high yeast Belgian 'trappist' ales, e.g. Westmalle 3pl. Not very frequently though, ~ 9%vol or more, that takes its toll...

                  Dopplebock is the 220+ pound weight division at one on my favorite races ... The Point Bock 5 miler ... held at the brewery ... 1st weekend in March.  I have been > 220 pounds at this race, but for prides sake, I sign up for the Big Bock division (200-219).

                   

                  I am currently enjoying IPAs along with anything else someone put's in my hand.

                    There is a British TV program called: Supersize vs Superskinny.

                     

                    The truth they found out is that superskinnies always don't eat enough. You may add 50% more every meal or eat until you are going to explode.

                     

                    Actually I have the same problem to keep my weight up. The problem for me is that I often eat about 1800 calories a day instead of 2500 which is probably required when I run. Now I have some nuts and a banana for snack (about 300 calories) between breakfast and lunch and then have a big lunch + an apple and an orange to bulk up.

                      @DoppleBock Respect!

                       

                      @DavidLiu very interesting, thanks for the tip! Too bad it won't play for me right now (geo restrictions), but will eventually see it on dutch tv...

                        Beer seems to do the trick for me ... to prevent any weight loss that is.

                         

                        Haha! Smile

                         

                        @LuigiG, go on a high calorie diet. Go crazy on peanut butter, milk, bread... But make it a point to still eat healthy. Smile

                          Eating a lot after running can be the best way to avoid weight loss and maintain the current weight.

                            I also have trouble maintaining my weight, so I can't say I have a solution, but this is what I'm doing:

                             

                            1) I drink ensure, usually a bottle every morning (it's 250 to 350 calories)

                            2) Eat when hungry. I have a tendency to not do that simply because I am too lazy. Making food and eating takes time and is often inconvenient (like in the middle of the night). Having convenient food helps (like banana). (I don't eat a lot of junk food, but I suppose that will help too, although it may cause other issues)

                            3) When I finish a meal, I think I'm full and I'm done and won't want anymore food, but that's kind of psychological because I won't actually feel differently by much if the portion size is a bit smaller or larger. So I started using bigger plates/bowls (meaning more food).

                             

                            I just had a physical checkup last week and my doc laughed at me and told me to eat more, so I understand where you are coming from...
