    Post by lavenderlilacgirl on Sun 27 Jul - 15:12

    For months, I have been looking for a perfect diet...the one you drop a shit load of weight for not a lot of work. The diet you can't stop talking about. You know what I mean. Soo...

    I haven't found a single ultimate, perfect diet. I try something, and then I plateau, so I try something else, then reach a new plateau.

    When I lost the most weight was when I was running cross country and eating a somewhat "normal" amount. Small breakfast. Modest lunch. Whatever dinner my parents cooked. I was too exhausted and busy with schoolwork and training that I didn't have time for things like snacks. I probably ate 1500-1800 calories per day, but I lost 15 pounds in that season.

    The kind if running we did varied a LOT. We'd do sprints, distance, VO2 Max, long, slow runs, fartleks (change your pace as you run), hills, 400's (run 400 at race-pace, jog 400 for recovery; repeat), and actual race-days. So much running, but it was many different styles of running, too.

    Oh, now that I think about it, we also did strength training with weights in the gym, and every now and then TRX workouts.

    Part of me thinks I lost weight because I didn't have a choice in doing those exercises. The coach was making us do it.

    The only thing that really works for me is just severe restriction.

    I have been trying to craft the perfect diet that gets you the maximum nutrients (so you don't end up with deficiencies that make you faint so other people get suspicious and angry) but the lowest calories. I'll post it here when I get done if you like Smile Standard disclaimer, I am not a nutritionist

    The trouble with multivitamins is - they don't always absorb, especially if you aren't eating much/anything, and - most of them don't contain all of the vitamins for a number of reasons. In particular a lot don't contain minerals or electrolytes at significantly high levels.

    You can buy electrolyte supplements tho. Magnesium, calcium, potassium and sodium. or like buy sea salt or that no salt stuff and sprinkle it on everything.

    There is no such thing as a "perfect diet." That is why the diet industry is such a billion dollar business. *sigh*
