You're in a tough spot. My situation wasn't life or death like you're illustrating, but diabetes was becoming a real threat, thus my move on sugar.

I do think 'food replacement' can be effective. Even something like low fat ritz crackers or pretzels instead of chips would be a start. He could probably eat all the pretzels he wants and still improve.

I think sometimes people think they're too far gone so they give up when really you can turn it around awfully quick with some minor diet changes and a little exercise. I hope the conversation with the cardiologist works.

Try making some hummus outta chickpeas lemon juice cumin and low sodium hot sauce. Use some no salt pretzels or home baked corn tortillas to dip them in. Try carrots or mushrooms too. Make em and bring em over to him for a game. Don't be all nag Michelle Obama about it but down it yourself too. I always had a need for the salty snacks like PO's and this helped save my life literally till i could get to a better diet.


Neb is so right about small changes can see big results - its a matter of taking control with a more plant based diet. Aint nothing wrong with killin squirrel you just cant eat it all the time. Once you take control even a little you feel more powerful and in control of your destiny.

good luck!

What sort of bike did you get?

I'm doing the 100km from Sorrento but I do one or two 40-50km rides most weeks. For a multitude of reasons, glad I'm not your ass :D

Earlier this year, I cut way back on my sugar consumption. I haven't had a soda since March and, in general, I watch my sugar intake very closely. Most days, it's just from yogurt (about 12 - 15 grams).

But, to be perfectly honest, I've seen a much bigger change in how I feel in general from cutting out wheat. The wheat in this country is actually a hybrid and there are side effects from the hybridization. Funny thing is, I was skeptical and was expecting to feel exactly the same. For the first 4 - 7 days, I felt like I was starving myself. But then it just stopped. No more hunger pangs every 2 hours. I just cut out wheat, not ALL carbs and ate what I normally would've eaten like steel cut oats for breakfast, fresh vegetable juices, and varied lunches and dinners.. everything from brats (w/o the bun) to pork chops to potatoes. I even tried a pizza with a crust made from cauliflower (believe it or not, it was good). Anyway, I dare anyone to try it... I think you'd be surprised.

Congrats Henchman.

I agree on the wheat as well. In addition to wheat, I avoid soy and dairy since all 3 are screwed up in the USA. I eat as much fresh/natural foods as possible and try to focus on natural meats, enhanced waters, some free range egg and overall limited carbs.

The system in the US is designed to make the population obese and sick.

Six months ago I would've thought that was some weirdo conspiracy nutjob thinking, but after watching a few documentaries it really is **** up how much garbage they're putting in the food over there. Made me sick to even think about it, so many unnecessary chemicals and additives purely designed to make things bigger than they actually are. I'm sure it happens here too but definitely not to the same degree.

Yeah doing the full 210km. Only decided for sure I was going to go through with it today. I've been on a 25k and a 45k ride this week and cramped up massively in my legs both times. But I've been given some salt tablets that will supposedly fix that. I got this bike: http://www.reidcycles.com.au/bicycles/road-bikes/2012-reid-condor-road-bike.html#.UIJ0v8WSpCM if you don't hear from me I've died on the attempt. :D

Good luck brother - sadly I think you're in for some pain :(

I had to pull out as I'm heading up to Qld for a week, snuck out for a quick 50 today and that hurt enough!

A 210km ride with 3 weeks prep?

Should be right for Tour de France next year. Maybe something better than salt tablets though...

I got the bike 3 weeks ago but only rode twice both times in the last week. Maybe I missed my calling.

Holidays are upon us so I thought this an appropriate bump..

Personal update: I tore ligaments in my should 8 weeks ago and I'm back on the court 5 days a week, starting to lift again and have added a regular run into my fitness routine. My runs have consisted of 3 miles sets and I usually do 1-3 sets depending on day, etc.

Needless to say, taking on the worst injury of my career has me refocused on committing to getting even stronger and in even better shape. This is the best part of a rehab program and it's working.

Now with the holidays and all the eating, it's been my focus to come out on the other side of New Years in great shape and well ahead of all those who fell off during the holidays.


I've also started using a free app that I think works great as an easy data tracker:

http://www.myfitnesspal.com/


Check out the free phone app as well. It's a really easy way to keep your expectations in line, has tons of foods and exercises and is very easy to use. You can also enter in your own foods.


Good luck all

Just started p90x last night, and it felt good. My muscles feel sore today, but not terrible.

Excited to continue it tonight.

Im skinny, with a bit of a stomach (brb worst phsyique you can even have lol) so Im hoping it makes me more proportional. I have mild heart/back problems that prohibit me from heavy lifting, so I figured Id go this route instead.

I have been on the south beach diet for 2 weeks now, and have lost 20 pounds. I only eat 1 meal a day, and I don't drink anything during the day. I squeeze up lemons/limes/grapefruit for a healthy juice.

I was thinking about training for and attempting to do Tough Mudder until I heard about the part where you can get electrocuted. That freaks me out, so I don't really want to do it. :(

After a long layoff, I did some supersets of pullups and military presses two days ago, and today I feel like I got hit by a car. I always break in too fast. Never learn my lesson. I seriously feel miserable.

I did the tough mudder two years ago. I wanted to be tough going through the shock part since that is where all the people are watching you. Ran full speed and braced for it. I tripped on some hay and face planted it. People thought I had the biggest shock ever when I didn't even touch it. Most people don't get shocked.

Interesting.

I don't drink alcohol (never have), and hate soda, but I love milk. I used to drink about a gallon of 2% every 2 days (seriously), but since the new year Im down to 2 glasses of skim milk a day. Water for everything else, sometimes juice. Feels good, not so bloated with all the milk.

Yeah, I just don't want to be one of the people who randomly gets shocked though. It's not that I'm afraid of the pain so much as that type of thing can kill you. I'd rather just do some sort of obstacle course/challenge where I don't have to get shocked. ;)
