Default Skate Diet ??

This isn't about training so I didn't put it the fitness forum. This seemed to be the best place.

Ok, so I started back skating October 2008 which led to an injured L5 my first half lap! Two weeks later I was back at it. I had the bug and couldn't figure out why I ever stopped skating. Paul (A-TownSk8er) pointed out that it looks like I lost weight so I started looking at older pics. And I guess it does show! He's the only person that has noticed but it feels good that someone has. I now skate 4 times a week minimum and I skate fast and hard. Just tonight I did 4, 3 song shuffle / jam skates. We have a new awsome DJ that mixes the beats so its no breaks between songs. Today I went shopping and bought 2 new pair of pants size 38 and 2 new XL shirts. I have been wearing a 40 waist and a 2xl shirt. I did it for motivation and figured I would try them on once a week and keep up the diet and skating untill they fit. So when I got home I tried them on and they fit! That put me in a great mood So now the pics. I was 275 first pic, don't know how much on the second one taken October 10th the last one from saturday night, I am 238. My goal is 210 by 2010

275 lbs


Not sure how much I weighed here October 10th:



Now 238:

Good job, yeah the skates will do it.

Before long you will be like that guy on the Subway comercials. Quick, find a skate company to pay you to be in comercials for them for skate dieting.

Yeah I also stopped drinking Cokes and other soft drinks. On occasion I drink a coke zero but mainly water. I'm actually cheating a bit right now. I'm drinking a Mike's hard lemonade .... and I don't want to hear all the crap of it being a girly drink. I like them LOL but since I only ate a pack of Ramen Noodles today because I was too busy to eat, One drink won't hurt

Yeah .. skating really works! I'm at 230 even right now. Here I am last saturday in Anderson at 233. I like the new me and I can skate better, do more moves and learning new tricks takes less effort. Also I fell 4 times saturday and it didn't hurt as much!

233 ... on my way to my goal.. 210 by 2010

That's awesome, and keep skating!

I, on the other hand, seem to be stuck at 195-200lbs, with a gut that won't go away

I'm dreading the winter months as I will invariably be gaining weight with significantly less skating time, unless I grit my teeth and run.

That's great to hear.

This is one of the main reasons why I will be rejoining the skate ranks. I am 37 and it just gets harder and harder every year. I am in the gym 4-6 times a week lifting and I get on the boring treadmill or elliptical for between 20-40 minutes and I am just sick of this part of my workout. I love to lift heavy and have been lifting for 22 years. When I lived in FL and could run on the beach or swim or bike it wasn't an issue-but the gym cardio just kills me. My diet is outstanding, don't drink cokes, and have maybe 4 beers a week.

I am 5'9" and 215. 36" waist and I wear 2xl shirts. The shirts don't bother me but I would like to get back down to a 32-33" waist.

One of the crazy things about skating is that if you start doing significant distances, you start to build crazy thighs, which result in getting pants that don't fit.

Eric Heiden, 5x gold medal Olympian, had to wear size 38 pants, despite having a 32-in waist.

Me, I'm in it for the adrenaline rush. A speed junkie, I am.

YUK! I have that problem right now. Been skating since I was 16. Although I'm 6'3" 233lbs my waist is 34 but I have to buy jeans that are 38 to 40 in the waist just to get them on! UGH!

Default Congrats Jimmy!

Congrats Jimmy! I haven't known you too long, but just based on the pics,
I can totally see a difference also!

I've been doing Atkins Diet (no/Low Carbs) since February and
have dropped weight like I never thought could be possible.
I've slacked off in the past 2 months, so, Im kinda stuck at the same weight now..
I was hoping skating again would help the weight to come off.
But Im still the same. Guess Im just not skating hard enough.
Well, My skills arent even close to yours.
And After my fall last night, Im not sure if Im gonna push it anytime soon!
You Should be very proud!
Juicy

Congrats on the loss, it really shows you've worked at it in the pic! Sometimes you will plateau and not lose a pound for your life. That indicates it's "time to mix it up" - trick your body so it does not process the foods in the same ole' way, keep it guessing, and keep the metabolism working. Changing diet foods will kick up your losses when combined with exercise. Try limiting foods to low glycemic index foods (like those for stabilizing diabetes thru diet), or even diets like the south beach can be of benefit (south beach is similar to atkins only less or no fat - I'm personally not a huge fan of atkins, too much fat, besides look where old mr. atkins is now-a-days). Of course, you can do these different diets short term, but then look to balance your every day diet in the process to a more healthy diet, maybe incorporating some of the key dietary things. You'll find in the diets mostly high-proteins and low-carb fruits & veggies, nuts, and minimizing diary products( as best possible), etc., these foods will help fuel your losses. Ween yourself off of any starches (potatoes, rice, white breads).

You pointed out eliminating coke's, and are correct in doing so - seriously who puts 10 teaspoons of sugar in a normal drink - add it up that's a lot of sugar! (1 tsp of sugar is 16 cal). Coke zero is a better choice when you need a carbonation fix, or try Zevia cola(cols made with natural stevia sweetener, also 0 cal.

Best of luck, keep rolling and those pounds will roll right off, too!

I stopped eating potatoes all together and I like white wheat bread so Im good there. I have discoverd Cherry coke zero and it is really good! Doesnt tast diet to me at all. Now I am at a steady 230 and nothing is budging. I have gave myself a "free" day. Every sunday I can have a treat or something I normally do not eat anymore. It's alot easier to cut all the crap out if you can count down the days to a reward. I haven't taken any diet pills or ate any diet food. Maybe a switch to diet foods will jump start me and I will reach my goal.
