    You are right! but I will do some static exercises first in order to gain some strength.

    Don’t laugh, but I was thinking to join pole dancing lessons LOL . The exotic dancers have the best bodies, this is something that I have added to my bucket list.

    Since I finished the London Marathon on April I have not run a single metre and I've put back the 5 kilos I lost in training! There is another marathon in nearby Malaga in December so I may have to enter that, it seems like I need some kind of goal or event before i can be arsed to get up and go running.

    Since May 1st 2013 I got back in the gym and started Intermittent Fasting which is basically a regime rather than a diet. Still eat the same amount of food, but in 4h-8h window and nothing else during the other 16h. I'm 5'3 (168cm) around 176lbs (80kg). For 3 months I've managed to drop no more than 8lbs, without any huge diet changes (I have this thing for sweets ).

    I dropped from 15% bodyfat to 11% and going down. Finally after 28 years saw what my abs look like . I've lost around 4cm of my waist and retained the same biceps/triceps circumference of 41cm (16.1 inch). I feel energized and great and to be honest I will stick to that regime from now on. I had doubts and was quite skeptical in the beginning, thought I'd disappear and would lose all of my muscle too. Though I'd feel very hungry but I do not, as I do get my 2500 cals a day just in a more dense period of time.

    I'd definitely recommend it to everyone. You can go around read about it, but more and more people start learning about it and show great results.

    I train every day. Three days a week swimming before breakfast, four days a week muscle training in the afternoon. My height is 1,91 and I weigh constantly ~117-119 kilograms with low body fat percentage. I also did Krav Maga for many years, but stopped it because of lack of time.

    btw. I can recommend to everybody not to start training, before you optimized your nutrition... it can be very frustrating if you train hard but dont get any results... (or no good results)

    I've read a lot about the fasting but I don't think I'd be able to do it. As the muscle grows I become more and more hungry like every hour or so. And I find that if you become too hungry you start to binge on stuff you shouldn't be eating.

    It def works though. I've seen a few people who do bouts of it when they are cutting.


    This round for my cutting I think I will try some carb cycling. I've read some good stuff about it too but never given it a serious try.

    I thought so too, but then I'd stop eating around 8pm, and perhaps get to bet at 11-12. By the time I wake up at around 8-9 it's already been 12 hours. I train on empty stomach and by the time I get home it's close to 12 and my precious eating window opens up till 8pm again. As long as you meet your macros, anything that you experience like hunger is most likely in your head, like my super cravings for sweets and not just any sweets, artificial sweets.

    I have definitely noticed that if I eat late, then the next day I see that I put on weight. I try to eat the latest by 18:00 and that seems to be working for me.

    I was watching a very interesting program about how the body reacts when it feels threaten like in a case of starvation. The body tents to improve when there is lack of food, you became more intelligent, agile, and you are able to eat things that you would never imagine eating in a different situation.

    There is this guy that is doing studies on extending life expectancy by feeding the body with a lower calorie intake. I suppose is something to do with survival.

    Well Intermittent Fasting has to do a lot with lowering your insulin sensitivity. Insulin, protects tissues, sadly that goes for fat tissue as well. Eating frequently carbs, raises your sensitivity, as there's always insulin in your body. Hence that fat you are trying to burn stays protected.

    Intermittent fasting is in no way starvation. If you were to eat 500g of chicken breast, 4 salads, drink 1L of milk, east 300g of rice through the whole day, you just do it in 4-8hrs instead of the 12-16 we are used to. That's all it is.

    All I know is that this industry is not friendly for people trying to lose weight.
    Every time I come back from a conference I find I put up another kilo or two, which I never shed off. I think our expense account is just too big...

    By 2015 I should weigh at least 90 kilos. Very depressing.

    Ah I see. My fasting window is a little too large I think. I do a fasted workout at 5/5.15am. Protein shake at 7am is my first meal of the day. Depending on the time I'm home my last meal is either at 6.30 or 8.30.. 8.30 is only 2 days of the week. My problem is that when I wake up at 5 I am ravenous. I could never wait until 12 to eat something. Sleeping in doesn't help either. I can't sleep any later than 7 or 8am on the weekends.

    There is this guy that is doing studies on extending life expectancy by feeding the body with a lower calorie intake. I suppose is something to do with survival.
    When you are asleep your body is in it's most efficient fat burning state. That is why it's not good to eat less than 2 hours before you go to bed as your body will be efficiently burning food that is in your system rather than it's fat stores. I would say that the "weight" you notice is most likely water retention though especially if you're noticing it on your body rather than on the scales.

    Regarding starvation - if your body does not receive enough energy (calories) it will start to slow down it's metabolic rate, in other words your metabolism will slow down and your body will not burn as much anymore at rest. Basically anything you eat then will be stored as fat because your body thinks it will not get enough. A good example of this is when you see girls who don't eat and they are "thin" but they have a lot of fat on their body. No muscle tone, just fat. (AKA skinny fat girls).

    People who remain on low calorie diets for extended periods of time will get metabolic damage and it's very hard to recorrect. You end up needing to eat twice as much as you normally would to get to the same weight because the body just does not function anymore. If you are trying a low calorie diet to lose weight, it is recommended that you give your body a break every now and then and eat "maintenance" calories for 2 weeks or so to shock your body.

    I read this article about an experiment to simulate WW2: http://experiencelife.com/article/food-crazy/
    Although at first your body will adapt to the lack of food, eventually it will make you go crazy.
    I did also watch a documentary about these people who did not eat for an entire year and they were able to survive because they were so fat. The body just used their fat stores for that entire time. Needless to say, at the end their bodies were so fkd up that it was almost in saveable.

    Also, things like starvation, lack of sleep etc causes stress on the body. Stress produces cortisol which has a few bad effects on the body like suppressing the immune system (you'll get sick more often), decreasing bone density which makes you more prone to diseases like osteoporosis, muscle atrophy (the loss of muscle mass) and the suppression of lipolysis (fat breakdown).

    The least amount of calories a woman should eat to still get all the nutrients she needs for her body to function properly is 1200 calories which is what they give to rehabilitate anorexics. You'd have to work out your BMR to identify what you should be eating on a daily basis in order to remain healthy and it will not only depend on your height and weight but also on the percentage of lean muscle mass you have. A simple BMR calculator will give you a simple answer that you can go from. If your goal is to build lean muscle mass and lose body fat, I would highly recommend a dexa scan as this is the only accurate way to see the amount of muscle fat etc that you have and give you an accurate BMR (BMR is how many calories your body burns in a day at rest).

    Edit: I should probably also mention that starvation and fasting are two different things.

    You know, thanks to this forum I am learing about so many different types of workouts, not sure what to try first

    I have been suffering from a bad back lately, so as soon as I feel better I will be having fun trying some of these workouts.

    You have to take care of your back first!!!
    i think swimming & pilates will be most easy for your back.
