Devlyn, that's my ultimate goal -- but right now I can't run for longer than 20 minutes at a time.
I used to be able to run regular 5Ks, but I haven't done that for about a year. I'm following a training schedule from Cool Running
to ease back into it! I'm on week 6 of the program.
AND, lol, I'll give that a try, but I'm already shooting for a really low BMI (19). If I aim for 10 lbs lower, I'm afraid I'm going to make myself anorexic!
Angela, I'm giving it a try. I did a TB of canola oil this morning just to see what happened, and for whatever reason, I wasn't completely
I can't attribute that to Shangri-La, though. I'll let everybody know how it goes.
Cron, I love that guy's writing style, too! It's much more congruent with the way I actually diet. The pros say: Eat healthy and use your willpower to conquer cravings, and you can diet without ever being hungry. The Hacker's Diet guy says: Face it, losing weight means eating too little for your body to exist on, making it use its stores of fat. Duh, you'll be hungry! But at least it's only temporary.
PS, You know what's really funny? I read in Fitness magazine last week that they're now recommending that you weigh yourself -- ready? -- EVERY DAY! Hahahahaha! The experts now agree with me!
Since reading the Hacker's Diet, have you changed your opinion on that?
By the way, I was going to recommend a no-frills digital lithium Tanita scale to you on your other thread. Then I remembered that my boyfriend hates that scale because he doesn't get consistent measurements from it. Which is weird... because I get really consistent measurements from it. Post a link to the model you got; I'm interested in seeing how it works for you.
