    sticking to the diet

    anyone else have a hard time keeping to the diet your supposed to be eating? I've lost 30 pounds but i'm having a hard time losing the last 10 i want to drop because i cant keep it together. I eat perfect about 4 days a week but as soon as friday gets here it falls apart. Before i know it i've drank 12 beers and had 2 cheeseburgers and a vat of cheese dip. How do you guys handle it?

    Its more of a mentality thing. Have a cheat day for yourself or a cheat meal so you're not all tied up to your diet.

    When Im not training for anything, I'll train and eat healthy diet wise but here and there I'll eat some extra foods. But when dieting, gotta keep the goals in mind and in the long run.

    it gets easier over time, dont give up! =)

    yeah the food isnt the problem i like healthy foods but i'll be damned if i dont have a week spot for beer. I used to drink atleast 12-18 beers a day. woke up one day and was over 210 pounds at about 30%+ body fat i cut it out almost completely i just cant make it over a week without drinking one lol

    You have a choice man, either you can be fat with a beer gut that everyone will laugh at, or you can choose to have a chiseled physique that will make women drop their panties. Its your choice bro.

    Fuck, you can't make it through ONE weekend? If you can make it through one you can do two. Then it's a matter of what your goals are. Well if you used to drink 12-18 beers a day and you have an issue with beer now, in any capacity, you might need to talk to a counselor. If you can't make it a week without beer, you have a real issue. And I'm serious.

    Or it's just a habitual bad habit your in. I remember a time when i quit lifting and was slamming beers after work on a daily basis. It just became a part of my daily routine. Luckily I changed habits and began to train again and eat right. You can replace bad habits with good ones.

    Figure out how to work all that into your allotted calories. It's not ideal but it's better than what you're doing. If you know you're going to go play cards or go out, get your protein and fat in but eat fewer overall calories through the day.

    You can also try to have a solid protein shake before you go out -- perhaps 50-100g of protein. On a smaller scale, you are welcome to do something like that before each meal. It should help decrease your appetite.

    I think if you utilized to drink 12-18 beers a day and you have an topic with beer now, in any capability, you might require to converse to a counselor. If you can't make it a week without beer, you have a genuine issue.

    You Guess! Your a person that is either not motivated for life or your a pussy that doesn't have the balls to discipline yourself to obtain your goals. Either way you got issues man that need to be addressed.

    Yea I could see this, theoretically. It's mighty hard to differentiate between a bad alcohol habit and an alcohol problem though. Real hard. REEEEEEALLY hard. But yes I concede that point. I used to be the same way with sipping caffeine drinks and riding around listening to my fave songs to get pumped up before the gym. Then I realized I just needed to sip just about anything with some flavor before the gym. It was 90% mental.

    Try giving up red meat and refined sugar as well as sodium. That shit takes discipline. Its been 90 days since ive had any of the above.

    I understand where in social situations you can get caught up in after work drinking or going out drinking. But the truth is followers run with the pack...leaders run ahead of the pack. Its a choice to be a leader or a follower.

    Are you considered a follower if you are the guy rounding up all your friends to go out boozing with you.

    12-18 beers a day? lol...My favorite line is "Before i know it i've drank 12 beers and had 2 cheeseburgers and a vat of cheese dip". Before you know it? I guess I am a lightweight but after 4 beers i am stuffed and feel like I am going to explode, nevermind the 2 cheeseburgers...Oye! Best of luck dude!

    Just replace the beer with some diet coke or something...as long as you're sipping on something it won't be all that hard to kick the beer...

    As for sticking to the meal plan, it's very hard to do sometimes when you're out of the house but when I am at home, I find it's much easier to stick to a diet if I prepare my meals in advance.
    Make a big batch of baked chicken breast, brown rice, broccoli, and low fat cheese, buy some little ziploc containers and measure out several meals and throw them in the fridge. About 90% of the time I eat unhealthy it's because I don't feel like preparing something healthy and I make something fast and unhealthy
