    Default a twist

    ok, I know this subject has been brought up several times but I thought; what the hell.
    I'm currently stuck at around 12-14%(probably just water differences) and want to get down to below 10%. So to make this more fun and interesting please post you

    Default well...

    1. sleep (sleep deprivation has been shown to reduce metabolism).
    2. drink a glass of water every hr or at least as often as possible (water cant just be taken in in one gulp. just like food, water can only be taken in only to a certain amount).
    3. nutrition (foods that help increase your metabolism will probably help also. (ex: green tea) fruits and vegetables are very good for you and should be eaten in more than adequate amounts. fiber helps clean out your system and helps everything operate at maximum efficiency.
    4. exercise (i am guessing you are already doing this, but also some good cardio work (interval training) or something that is really intense to really get your heart pumping and the nutrients circulating). stay more active than inactive basically.


    I cant really think of the fifth but if you work these to the best than you will get down to below 10%...im at 8.5% and i do follow this sound advice to the best i can. though i have trouble sleeping.

    Default a twist

    Not in any partiicular order:

    1. lower carb intake (bad carbs)
    2. reduce calorie intake
    3. Do what Ellington Darden calls "super" hydration, drink at least 1 gal of water a day. Spread out over the day.
    4. Don't eat after 5 PM if possible
    5. get at least 8 hours of sleep
    5.a. continue exericising

    1. Count calories. I know lots of people disagree, but it is the only way to be sure you're doing the right thing. If you're not losing fat fast enough, know exactly what you have to do. And it also prevents you from undereating and then bingeing at night.
    2. Work out every day. Do something strenuous at least once a day, at least 6 days a week.
    3. Don't combine fats and sugars. Chose either lowfat or low carb and watch your calories. Both work. I like low fat better, but many don't.
    4. Enjoy your workout or you won't stick with it long enough to get lasting results.
    5. Enjoy your diet or you won't blah blah blah same as 4.

    Default super hydration?

    what's so good with that?
    don't you flush out electrolytes and stuff if you got to much water in you?

    thanks

    You can definitely overdo it. But a gallon a day should be fine.

    Default super hydration?

    1. lower your standards
    if that one fails, do two or three days a week of very high intensity work. like run bleachers with a sandbag on your shoulders until you want to die, then drop the sandbag and keep running them, take a light jog or bike ride for five minutes or something and do it again. sprint up hills while carrying a midget. run with ten pound ankle weights on. look up wrestling drills or navy seal drills or something. spend your weekends laboring for a mason. while you're doing stuff like that, you might find you can sleep three or four hours a night and be vaguely functional. try that, its an extra few hours of being awake and having a higher metabolism, and some studies (and my own and a friends personal experience) suggest that getting such a low amount of sleep kicks your metabolism into overdrive. maybe eat nothing but two pounds of chicken breast a day. the goal here is to shock your body good. alternately, theres lots of ways to boost your metabolism throughout the day- constant mini workouts, like doing just enough pushups that you don't break a sweat or get really tired once every half hour or hour, stand up instead of sit as often as possible, hold a gripper closed constantly in your free hand, always chew gum. dumb little stuff like that will add up by the end of the week if you always keep it in your mind

    Default super hydration?

    Eat your biggest meal in the morning, and try not to eat anything past 6:30 p.m. or so, besides raw fruit or veggies for light snacks. Drink lots of water.

    Don't eat any sugar, and cut way back on salt if you can, and no sodas or alcohol. Drink only water. You get enough sugar from healthy consumption of fruits and vegetables, and both sugar and salt are so high in almost any prepared foods you eat that it's very difficult not to get enough salt unless you are sweating up a storm regularly. Even things like bread and many bottled sweet drinks have more salt and sugar than you'd suspect. Both pack on fat very well.

    Use light sauces and dressings. Many dressings have more calories by far than several helpings of the salads they garnish. Try rice vinegar, flavored vinegars, or lemon juice for salad dressings.

    Cut way back on starches, and eat way more vegetables.

    Alternatively, become a rock star or find some other way to stay up three days in a row taking drugs. Even if you eat a lot, you can drop 30 pounds in 10 days! People regularly lose weight in the hospital when they have to get all their nourishment from an IV drip, too.
