    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! =)

    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.

    i have a pretty labor intense job out in the sun.. i used to come home and crack open a cold one after being in the heat all day.. then open another.. and another.. and so on.., used to party a lot too.. cut down on all that quite a bit just gotta stop partying on weekends i guess.

    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.
