if you have time to post topics and make cosplay you have time to workout :P

Don't get me wrong I love cheese burgers I eat them all the time, especially on 49cent cheeseburger deals at McDonalds lmao



HAHAHAHA

Remember your supposed to eat 6 GOOD meals a day, cheating on 1 or 2 isn't bad as long as your not eating it with large fries and a large soda. Unsweet Ice Tea can cut you around 500 calories for a large drink, and fries another 500 or so.

Also the more you workout the more you need to maintain your lean body mass. Look at Jason Huh he's my friend's cousin.



Just became IBFF pro this July. He's already noted as one of the top bodybuilders in the industry especially as his leg's are concerned. he's a regular at Cheeseburger Cheeseburger lmao!

The more you workout, the more your allowed to cheat on your diet, many body builders still don't obtain enough calories to grow bigger. Getting good solid diet often lacks clean calories after all.

That's why I always say workout, and NOT TO DIET at your start, and let your willpower build cause soon your gonna go god damn it's gonna take me 20 minutes of RUNNING to burn off this can of soda!!!

As your body changes your confidence and willpower will get stronger period. Also even if you workout 30 minutes a WEEK, after a full year you'll have noticeable differences. The hard part is pushing yourself to do 30minutes of INTENSE workout, and not just 1 set of benchpress then rest for 3-5minutes then doing another set.

Basically my 30 minute workout is

I'm putting my weights as example.

Lat pull downs 135 lbs wide as possible explosive and fast 10 times , NO REST then 105 lbs 10 times moderate speeds , NO REST then 75 lbs 10 times slowly. 1 minute rest then Repeat 2 more times for total of 9 sets.

I repeat that for everyworkout, do about 6-8 exercises for each muscle group. This is circuit training with HIIT training included.

Circuit training is quick intense workout that keeps your heart rate elevated MORE effective in burning fat and building muscle in recent studies.

HIIT is high intensity interval training which incorporates mixing up your workouts. Like if your gonna run you run jog walk sprint in random order. This burns more fat than running in a constant speed, think of cruise control saves gas while on the highway, if you have a heavy foot drive like a moron inbetween cars and braking a lot you'll burn more gas.

With my biceps and triceps I do 2-3 sets of continous drop sets.

Starting from 45 pound curls, to 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 5, 10, 5, 10, 5 that's 1 set with NO rest inbetween. 1-2 minute rest and repeat. Alternating from flat curl to hammer curl (flat curl is where your palms are faced up , and hammer is where your thumb is pointed up) Since it's Bicep which Bi means 2 it targets each muscles separately

Triceps you can do it with push downs with palms facing up, thumb up, and palm facing down. I continously go from one grip the next which completely blows up my triceps.

biceps and triceps are easy to workout and pretty basic since it's primarily one movement, I do biceps with dumbbells and triceps with cables, but often mix things up.

NEVER get on a set routine, ALWAYS mix it up to help avoid plateaus in training.

REMEMBER THE HARDEST WEIGHT TO LIFT IS YOUR ASS OFF YOUR COUCH

another fun picture



Yes off season many bodybuilders like to get FAT, cause it makes it easier to build muscle and maintain in the off season

oh and don't be afraid to lift weights and take protein as a woman,



Jamie Eason is a fitness model / celebrity in the industry and lifts quite a bit of weights.

Diet soda is actually WORSE for you than regular soda. Not only that I know people who are literally addicted to diet coke where they'll get migraines if they try to stop drinking it. So yes it is addictive to some people.


More Diet Drinks, More Weight Gain

Fowler's team looked at seven to eight years of data on 1,550 Mexican-American and non-Hispanic white Americans aged 25 to 64. Of the 622 study participants who were of normal weight at the beginning of the study, about a third became overweight or obese.

For regular soft-drink drinkers, the risk of becoming overweight or obese was:

* 26% for up to 1/2 can each day
* 30.4% for 1/2 to one can each day
* 32.8% for 1 to 2 cans each day
* 47.2% for more than 2 cans each day.

For diet soft-drink drinkers, the risk of becoming overweight or obese was:

* 36.5% for up to 1/2 can each day
* 37.5% for 1/2 to one can each day
* 54.5% for 1 to 2 cans each day
* 57.1% for more than 2 cans each day.

hmmm.... what you say makes sense, but i don't get how the statistics are valid since people that are drinking diet soda are predisposed to being overweight because they are drinking the diet soda for a reason. For instance, Skinny people probably wont be drinking diet soda unless they are anorexics. I don't know, i don't want a debate. you know far more than i do. but, I'm trying to subconsciously find a reason not to stop drinking it because i am truly addicted to aspartame and Ive tried to quit drinking it before. its not like diet soda tastes good, i just cant stop drinking it. Sorry for all the psychology talk but im taking psych this semester and as I'm talking i am evaluating myself and picking out flaws as i type.

drinking things that are sweet but without the calories can trick the body to gaining weight, Dr Pepper had some good articles that explained the thing about diet soda's entirely before (the poster not the drink ) but I'll try to get around to it after the gym

This. Sweeteners have been shown to trigger insulin spikes/releases when consumed. Insulin is a double bladed weapon. Incredibly helpful and incredibly harmful depending on diet and activity levels. Its what basically helps signal your body to deliver the nutrients you've consumed to your body.

On another side of things diet soda has been shown to cause bloating and weight gain, and someone drinking diet soda IIRC can lose up to 10 pounds in a year just from stopping with not other changes.

And on a more psych oriented view point, many people have the habit of justifying a cheat if they are "making up" for it somewhere else. The big mac with a diet coke, or just a medium popcorn with the diet soda. It don't work that way, lol.

If you are really drinking 6 cans of soda everyday (and I've been there) you need to weem yourself off. Try to drop down to 3-4 cans a day for a week, then 1-2, and then one maybe once or twice a week really shouldn't stand in your way of making progress.

And frankly, if you are drinking your gallon to gallon and a half of water a day, you probably aren't going to be all that thirsty for soda. Though replacing the caffeine intake can be important, you'd probably benefit from slowly getting off of it for a while just so that when you need a pick me up, it actually works.

Around February/March of this year, I decided I wanted to lose weight until I was within a "normal" BMI. Not really for health reasons- I've always been healthy, and I'm a strong advocate of Health At Every Size. I just wanted to have a body that I could feel comfortable doing fun cosplays with.

Anyway, by restricting my calories and just generally leading a more active lifestyle, I've managed to drop from 165-170 pounds to my current weight of 135.

Here's my face at my heaviest (185-190), my previous weight, and me now.

And here's a full body shot (at my friend's wedding, that's the giant blur of white) from May:

And this is me now. This is the first time in my life I've owned a bikini!

Sorry the pictures aren't all uniform or anything... I never take pictures of myself just for the sake of showing the shape of my body,XD.

I am surprised, yesterday I ate 1 and a half burgers. Just totally indulged. Today I lost 2 lbs! Usually I wouldn't be excited about this but I FINALLY got through my plateau, I've been stuck at 106 for 3 or 4 months. Working out a bit more must be paying off?

It's quite possible that working out more has increased the speed or efficiency of your metabolism and subsequently you can eat more yet still lose weight.

I never knew that people would want to lose weight when they're already under 110. I could toss you with one arm!

Although, which one are you in the pictures? Purple, blue, or pink hair?

I am pink. I'm 5'2 and carry weight kind of weird. I wasn't actually going for losing more since I've been looking to build muscle weight and tone. I was expecting to gain some, but hell I'll take anything.

Ha, cutest one of the bunch, no disrespect to your two friends or anything. Well I hope you hit your goals.
