My parents have been negotiating the final stages of purchasing a house lately and all they can talk about is the same damn stuff over and over and over again. I am getting a taste how a lot of people may feel on here. Who is narcissistic enough to just continually write blogs and expect people to read them? Well, me. And, yeah, they can be pretty bleak sometimes. Over and over and over again.

Time to get honest:

I am getting fucking old. I am 37. That is why I am losing it and contemplating giving up. It's not that 37 is so bad it's just that it's all downhill from here. I can't play basketball anymore. I can't do a lot anymore.

I weighed 249 lbs at 6'2'' today at my doctor's appointment. That's pretty fat and it is starting to effect just about every aspect of my life.

I am not exactly sure how I am going to combat this. I think it starts with a plant-based whole food diet even though my doctor told me to reduce carbs like bread, potatoes and rice. That's ok he's a good PCP. My GI doctor told me plant-based whole food and all of my findings have always said plant-based whole food. The danger here is if I don't do anything right now I may get diabetes and I really don't want to starve myself and eat animal products for the rest of my life or get a shot or any other horrendous aspect of that.

I'm not sure how I'm going to train. I think I can still run. I think I can still swim. I think I can still ride a bike. I think I could probably do these things into my 50s. Yoga. My sister always tells me I should train for my mental health first.

I am terrible at goals. I have another GI doctor visit in the middle of November. That gives me 2 solid months to get after it and to see what I can do. One thing in my favor is that the weather outside should be getting less perilous and I can train outside all year round here.

I don't like the performance society.

I don't like the burnout society.

I don't like bare life (survival). Having no consideration for the good life but to pump up the health level and see who can have the oldest corpse is not for me. I don't really want to start loading up heart monitors and smart watches and eating gruel every day. We will see. We will see.

I don't think I would harm hiems if he came over to my parents' house to demand that I get rid of my star but I might eat him.

Don't listen to your doctor there are a lot of valid approaches to weight loss but low carb isn't for everyone and alot of times isn't sustainable.

Regarding the plant based whole food diet thing doesn't matter if you eat 100% the correct foods if your portion control isn't right and you aren't in caloric deficit you will not lose weight.

Best way to lose weight is to outsource the diet part to ppl who actually know what they are doing.

I had a dexascan a few months ago and my bf % was 27% so I hired an online fitness coach (he's a Phillipines based ifbb pro). I first tried hiring ifbb pro Chris Tuttle but he wasn't taking clients cause he had too many clients.

If you want a vegan option Daniel Negreanu seems to work with a vegan weightloss expert you can find that guys info just search on Daniel Negreanu instagram.

Yeah, I am not listening to my pcp. Nothing wrong with bread, potatoes, or rice (besides arsenic in the rice). I think my dad has lost 70 lbs. now on paleo type diet. Good for him but he basically makes a 1,200 calorie omelette in the morning and starves himself the rest of the day. He also walked like 10 miles a day which is pretty impressive because he kept that up and still walks 7+ miles a day. He is basically trapped with that for the rest of his life though. My mom recently got diagnosed with diabetes (she is normal bmi - we think it is autoimmune related) and is falling into paleo as well. Very severely starving herself and eating 0 sugar and barely any carbs in a day. I hope to not have to go down that route. I've been down it before.

Fucking hiems hiring ifbb pros lol!

I would imagine it is a lot of chicken and broccoli.

I don't have any money to hire anyone. Since my parents have gone paleo mad I'm probably stuck with some chicken and shrimp because I damn sure don't want to be eating pb&js for every meal. We'll just have to see how it goes.

The biggest issue is I am not nearly as athletic as I used to be. I am WAY passed my prime. Even if I get disciplined with some training I won't be able to outrun my mouth (Ray Cronise). It's easy and comforting to just go to Burger King and get an Impossible Whopper meal and drink like 2-3 Coca-Colas. Drinking Coca-Colas feels very harmful to humanity in a way but beyond that it is easy to rationalize it away and then I am back to getting fast food every day. I need that feeling of fast food being gross and harmful instead of me getting cravings and dopamine firing in a profound almost unstoppable way. I planned on stopping at Chick-fil-A after my doctor's appointment but I was the heaviest I've ever been in my life by far plus my blood pressure was like 150 over 90 and it is pretty clear that it is time to do something about it. I don't want to die but I am not sure how to live. Exercise is clearly a part of any good life and honestly obesity probably disqualifies the good life. Sometimes I feel like I have Robert Baratheon energy. Henry VIII. But, just because they were eating and fucking well doesn't mean they were good people. So, I can eat like a King and it brings me joy and some sort of identity but in reality overfeeding myself is not the good life and never will be.

I am 37 and I work out 6 days a week and have a 6 pack.

It's not a brag, it's just that it's not that hard to do it if you literally just get up each day and do the things that you need to do. It's just that simple, let go of whatever else you are worrying about or want, at least at the times that matter, and sacrifice for your greater good.

Do this:

1.) eat nutrient dense food that is unrefined and low in sugars so you can consume less calories while getting proper nutrition
2.) build some more muscle mass so that everything you do burns more calories
3.) exercise to burn calories.

my diet is mostly fruit+protein smoothies, veggies and rice, and rarely but occasionally something other than those 2 things

2.) and 3.) are not total contradictions but I don't see how I will gain muscle and be at a caloric deficit. I know people have accomplished this especially when soft and undertrained I've just never been able to do this personally and have never found a way of training and eating to do this.

Eating the correct way and exercising does result in building muscle while dropping weight. It's just mentally exhausting since you'd be changing the way you eat (most of the time meaning you'd be swapping out carbs for proteins and fats, which itself is hard) and then on top of that pushing your body.

If you're struggling with that attempt it gradually, first fix your diet and then start exercising, you don't have to do two huge changes simultaneously. But I'd suggest starting with the diet change first as it would be more challenging mentally and the workouts will have a bigger impact once you get to them.

Maybe try something like that if you can't afford a trainer. Buy a scale with the 0 out function.

Consistency is key. It doesn't matter how perfect the initial calories are since your body will adjust to it and you can use it as a starting point and observe how your body reacts after a month or so and adjust from there.

How do you guys track your calories burn daily?

The first coach I was about to hire said that having a fitbit is a good thing but I have been too cheap to get one. Other than that I don't.
