I received the Volumetric Diet books that I had ordered in today's mail. I plan on transitioning from traditional calorie counting diet to a Volumetrics diet where attention is directed to the calorie density of different foods. On my own without the books I have been trying Volumetrics for my dinner. It has kept me full and all but eliminated my evening snacking which historically was always a problem for me.

Breakfast
General Mills Fiber One cereal Original, 1 cup 120
Milk 2% milkfat, 0.75 cup 92

Lunch
Fried Breaded Haddock, 4 oz 248
Mashed Potatos 2% Milk and Margarine, 0.5 cup cooked 60
Green String Beans Steamed , 0.5 cup 22
Homemade Seafood Chowder, 1 CUP 183

Dinner
Libby's Naturals Cut Green Beans No Salt No Sugar Added, 1 3/4 Cup 70
Glory Foods Sensibly Seasoned Lower Sodium Tomatoes & Okra, 1 1/2 cup 75
Giorgio Canned Mushrooms No Salt Added, 1 cup 40
Joan of Arc - Light Red Kidney Beans No Salt Added 1 1/2 cup 330

TOTAL: 1,240 Calories my goal is 1,730

PCT?

Related to cycling: I was looking at my weight last summer when I was cycling 150-200 miles/month. I was 5 lbs lighter than I am now even with my crappy diet.

Naturally went from 185 to 172 in 2 months doing plyometric like workouts. Pretty simple stuff that takes about 45mins. No weights necessary and all you need is about 5x5 ft of space with adequate ceiling height. You do the workout every second day to give your body a days rest in between. After 11 workout days, you rest for a full week and move onto phase 2. There are a total of 33 workout days which takes 3 months.

Here's the site (all free info):
http://www.basketballforcoaches.com/vertical-jump/


I didn't change my diet, probably ate more. Lost an unexpected 13lbs which really isn't what I was going for. My mission was just to jump higher.

playing basketball 2-3 times a week also helped with that too.

Same.

Although age and other factors come into play, I played basketball 4 days a week (3 ours of straight running) for 2 months, ate mildly healthier (but still ate sweets occasionally) and lost 60# (233 to 173). In two months. Again, age and other factors must be considered, but losing weight is simply eating fewer calories than you expend, and exercising consistently. Running gives your entire body a workout, so I'd recommend that.

Don't just jump into running an hour a day and eating veggies/meats for every meal. Your plan won't be sustainable for a long period of time. Ease into it.

I apologize if I'm making this sound confusing. Thanks.

In order to loose weight, eat less calories than you burn. From your stats, it sounds like your body is burning ~2000 calories a day by doing nothing. So with excerise and by eating at 2000 calories or slightly below it you will loose weight. By eating at a calorie deficit of 500 calories a day, you will loose 1lb a week (3500 calories=1lb). Most importantly, you want to hit your Fat Protein and Carb Macros. By doing so, you will keep you body looking proportional and healthy (if that makes sense). I'm 5"11 and at 169, I eat 70g fat a day (macadmian nuts and olive oil shots), and around 180g protein, rest carbs. You just want to make sure you getting around 70g fat and at least 1g of protein per body weight, so in your case 170. If you have any more questions just ask, i've been lifting for 4 years now. Diet wise, no need to do the no carb diets etc (personally did the Keto Diet), just keep your meals flexible so you can still go out with friends, just have calories going in less than calories going out

I do Crossfit sometimes (about 3x a week) and love it, in addition to running/biking.

My only issue with Crossfit though is that any idiot can become a "certified instructor." You don't have to have any real peronal training experience or certifications to be a Crossfit trainer (or whatever it is called) and be responsible for showing newbies what to do. This is just a recipe for disaster IMO. This is where people get hurt.

Of course some places are well known for being great. Just gotta do your research. Seems like OP has the exercise part down though. Just work on cleaning up the diet a bit.
