Fat and Lazy (Read 1128 times)

    Anyone invent a magic pill for people like me yet?  No I am not looking to become a meth head or a crack addict.

     

    I used to have success before they banned the ephedra based metabo-life.  It took my appetite away and made me angry and irritable.

     

    Anyone have success with any current nutri-ceuticals?

     

    Yes-Yes, I know eat less, drink less alchohol or work out more.  I have been trying that for 9+ years.  I have a completely fair metabolism, so my fatness is totally from more calories in than I want to be eating or drinking.

     

    I hear lipo hurts?

      You know, to 99% of even RunningAhead's population, someone could say "Run more."

       

      That doesn't really work here, DB.

       

      The Hacker's Diet and its tools have been the real source of my modest successes.

        I don't know, but I would join your fat and lazy support group.  Actually, I'm mostly injured, fat, and lazy at the moment.

          I can put on 5# a week in injury times ... Maybe I should know - But what is your injury?  If you are not making progress -

              The Hacker's Diet and its tools have been the real source of my modest successes.

              +1 for The Hacker's Diet. I really like their weight tracking log.

               

              I also use My Fitness Pal to track calories. It's very enlightening to see your net calories each day when tracking calories consumed vs calories burned. After using it for a while you get a better feel for how many calories you're consuming vs burning. It caused me to make some slight changes in my eating habits. Nothing major, but enough to make a difference.

               

              I've used these two tools to help me drop 40 lbs.

                I will look into this - My issue is not tracking calories or activity - I have a spreadsheet that I can do that with that historically has been 95% accurate to net calories to weight loss or weight gain.  It is more controlling the urge to eat - I do not experience satisfaction in anything, just uncontrollable desire ...

                  I like MyFitnessPal as well, but I found the most interesting aspect of it relates to the other balancing items.  For example, the "Sodium" intake or the "Potasium" intake per day and the things you need to consume and seek out to consume in order to balance your diet.  I found that I was constantly short on potasium every day and I had to tweak and modify my diet in order get enough.

                   

                  I like the bar code scanner and the recipe making options as well. 

                   

                  WIth that being said, after about 6 weeks of it, I quit cold turkey.... Actually, that happened to be Thanksgiving week that I quit cold turkey.

                    I don't run your mileage, but I hear you.  I am hungry 95% of the time, regardless of how much I do or don't eat.  If I eat until full, I will gain weight quickly.  

                     

                    High protein/fiber foods--particularly raw ones--seem to keep me feeling full longer, but not really by a huge margin.

                     

                    If you find an appetite solution...I would love to know.

                      When I have one of my "bottomless pit" days I drink a Fat Tire. It is seriously the only thing that will fill me up. But just 1 or you're better off eating. I try to chew gum rather than eat when I should not theoretically be hungry, but that is still miserable. The thing that seems to curb my husband's appetite is when I try a new and healthy recipe that is an epic failure.

                          The Hacker's Diet and its tools have been the real source of my modest successes.

                           

                          Same here. I went from 215 to 165 using the Hacker's Diet 12 years ago, and have kept it off.

                           

                          I haven't found any of the weight- and calorie-tracking iPhone apps to be usable. None of them carry over calorie excess / deficit to the next day.

                            Have you thought about generic wellbutrin? Some folksuse it to curb smoking urges, and appaarently has an appetite surpressing side effect.

                              For me the key is finding something to kill the desire to eat when I just want too (not when I need too) what does work for me at night (which is when I get the muchies) is to make aand drink hot tea, there is something about having to go through the steps and then drinking it that gives me enough "to do" to kill the need to munch.

                                Now there is someone that understands the spirit of my question - I am fat and lazy !!! I just want a pill to take care of it.
