Foods Does anyone else experience Bottomless Hunger? Jan 17 2007
04:19 (UTC)
I'm fairly new at all this too, but I'll do my best in telling you what I see. It seems you're eating rather healthy food (minus the cake, but it was only a tiny slice) which is good, but maybe you're just not taking in the right amount of calories? If you exercise a lot, you need more calories to keep you going.

I think a 400-500 calorie difference between what you burn and what you eat is healthy (although I'm NOT sure and anyone else posting should correct me).
It's either this, or you need more protein? I know that the eggs and tuna are a good source, but i'm not sure about the rest.

Anywho, I have had days where I was just hungry, not matter what I ate, but that was usually when I was highly active and needed more to sustain me.

Good luck with this!

One more thing! If you haven't yet, use the tools on the site to show you an estimated calorie expenditure and allowance. It'll show you how much you burn and how much you should be eating :)

hey everyone! Just found the thread :) How's everyone doing? Today was a new day for me, cause I've just found the joys of exercising! And the pain D: my right knee is killing me cause I didn't exactly warm up for my cardio and I'm more out of shape than I thought! Anyone have any techniques to help strained/hurt knees? Or should I just wait this one out?

Good luck everyone!!
(P.S. Loving our team name)

Hiya everyone, I'm Bethan (pronounced Bee-thin; I was told this was the Welsh way of saying my [nick]name). I'm 18 and a freshman at UMass, hopefully to be accepted into the Computer Science major. I love computers and technology a bunch, whether it breaks down or not :) I'm also very much into astronomy and art, willing to sit out on a cold February night to plot stars and make spacescapes through Photoshop. Aside from my nerdy self, I'm starting to seriously take my health into consideration. Last wednesday I weighed in at 200lbs, and though I don't see too much improvement this week, I've started cardio and yoga (today) to get myself into exercise. Hopefully by next week I'll be sufficient help to my team!! My goal weight is 160, and possibly even 150. I believe joining in this competition is one of the biggest motivators in my challenge to lose weight.

If anyone ever needs some motivation to keep on going, I'm happy to help (even though I'm a newbie to all this, really).
Good luck everyone!!

Weight Loss a couple questions for anyone who is in/has gone through college. . . Jan 04 2007

Thanks everyone!

Okay, here's what I've found out about my gym facilities at school: all the one's close to me need a paid membership, though it's not too much if I save a little. I've also found that there is a free gym on campus (that I need to locate) but I've heard that the lines to get in aren't worth waiting. I will try going though! I just need to find a buddy (going by myself is sort of discouraging the first time).

I also do have a problem bringing food back to my room :\ I'll try to stick with fruits and juice there so that I'm able to get a snack as well as breakfast (classes sort of took away from my ability to get breakfast in the morning).

Thanks for all the help everyone, I'll post how I'm doing when I get back for the Spring semester :)

Heya everyone. I'm from (Eastern, mainly) Massachusetts (i love spelling out the state, seeing as it took me most my life and a few anger English teachers to get it right).

It'd be awesome to find someone near me, maybe bike/walk/jog around the Charles :)
