Corn in your diet is behind the obesity diet?
According to research the average person has between 50-60% of their carbon is made up from corn They say the best way to lower the corn in your body is to quit eating fast food.

Okay I want to begin by saying im not a nuitrion guy, nor do I have alot of experience in this. I'm a fighter and Ive had to cut wieght multiple times.

My last diet consisted of me loosing 32 lbs in 5 weeks. That is almost a pound a day. Now to be fair, I did cut 5 lbs at wieghins, but that is temporary water weight.

My "diet" consisted of me cutting out as much bad carbs out of my system a day. I would eat 12 grain bread once a week. I still drank milk, but only slim milk. I ate alot of chicken, beef, fish, and alot of veggies. Rice maybe once a week.

I kept to a very clean diet, which i wish i could keep on a regular basis.

The most important part of this write up, which I have not mentioned yet is that my calorie intake only droped slightly. I dont know of anyone who consumes less then 2000 calories a day. My protein shakes are more then that daily. My diet did improve which did drop the calorie intake in that slightly, but I had still been taking in over 3000 calories a day. Every day. The diet I followed was the eat your face off diet. I ate upwards to 7 times a day. Very small meals offcourse, (maybe 300 cal per meal) but man did it ever work.

Everyones body is different. I understand that. I went from having a slim, but slightly soft 203 lbs body to a weigh in weight of 170 in less then 6 weeks. I never felt better. I always had energy and I never starved.

I hope all this babling kinda makes sense. I follow my eat your face off diet every day, and im hovering around 180 mark and have put on about 8 lbs more muscle on my upper body in about 1 month. My calorie intake is 4000 cal per day (est) and My body fat level stays the same.

im with david all the way on this. and truthfully, you ought to be fighting as close as possible to your natural weight to minimize the amount of weight being cut. i weigh 145 and walk around between 143 and 148. I eat what i want and i get the proper amount of exercise. i also have a LOT more energy in a fight than someone who has had to cut 10-15lbs of water weight.

as far as losing weight goes, be aware of how many calories you are consuming. exercise to burn off the excess. avoid empty calories (anything that provides calories but little or no nutritional value). glycemic index can be a factor, but if you eat 5 meals a day it usually isn't. max weightloss ought to be 3-5lbs a week for a normal person. anything beyond and you're either doing it the wrong way or you were exceptionally out of shape in the first place (30+lbs overweight, muscle atrophy, etc).
either way, i dont think this post is accomplishing a whole lot.

david, i'd rep you but it wont let me... sorry guy.

use of a weapon I agree with you that it is fundamental to maintain weight in your fighting range however. the real problem starts for fighters who have to put on muscular mass, to increase in power and endurance, there is an old saying in boxing that a good weak fighter is not good enough to beat a good strong fighter. and is the heart of the issue because people have to bulked up initially to sculpt back down. this why you see fighters walking around 15-20 pounds heaver before a fight.

Clenbuterol FTW. Just kidding Losing that much weight is not healthy in that window of time.

clenbuterol stops working after awhile (in people anyway) and they start to balloon even if they're restricting their food; not worth it. Of course people in the entertainment industry have already learned this lesson after many failures and disasters...duuuuuuhhhhhhh

If you're a horse though, feel free it'll get you all ripped!!

ok, this would have been funnier if I could find the "ASS" stamp from Conan O'Brien. Nevermind. Botched joke.

oolong tea is good for fighting weight loss.
"Polyphenol in oolong tea is effective in controlling obesity. Specifically speaking, it activates the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving triglyceride.
