After 6 days of keeping a minimum calorie deficit of 1000 and doing mostly push ups as well as other simple exercises (plus lots of walking) I have lost 2.4 Kg and 1% body fat. :yahoo: 

 

Great! That's real progress dawg!

 

Previously you mentioned that your calorie intake was 800 divided into 5 meals a day right? Can you tell me how do you pull this miracle? What goes to make a meal? I clock up 500/600 calories per meal if I eat five times a day, which comes to 2500/3000 a day. Probably okay for a slim fit man with lots of physical activity. But not good for me.

 

Doosri baat, what can I do to speed up my metabolism? It's key to losing weight right? A nutritionist told me for genetic reasons I have very slow metabolism, which means my body stores extra calories easily. It also means I have to work twice as much as a normal person to lose as much weight.

 

Life's hard :pushup:

Thanks bro. My understanding is that you gotta have small size but regular meals and sufficient sleep in order to speed up metabolism. To be honest, mine sky rocketed since I started having regular small meals. I've also quit most of the processed and junk food. I am sticking to mostly organic and home made food which I think may be helping. 

 

My list of food items is not something you'd appreciate. Keeping our Pakistani diet in mind, I'd say you continue to consume at least 2-3 rotis per day. Best to divide it between meals rather than having 3 rotis at once. And if you want to challenge yourself you can include the following items as part of your regular small meals: a fruit a day, two cups of tea (if you're a tarorri like me), cucumber, 2 carrots, a tomato, 2-3 boiled egg whites, nuts, fish fillet, a cup of cooked brown rice (basmati is fine too), a few strawberries, half sweet potato, half a banana, quarter chicken breast, 2 weet bix, mix salad (no dressing) e.t.c These are the usual items in my list. I plan my day every morning and pick the foods as per my liking and as per availability. I try to consume low calorie food during the day (egg whites, carrots, cucumber, sweet potato, tomato, apple e.t.c) because I like to have 1 proper meal in the evening to keep sanity and to look forward to something yummy; 1 roti with the usual home cooked salan. It's amazing how you also start appreciating Kaddu and teenday by then :D

Thanks you for showing me the way, saeen. Most of the food items you mentioned are on my list. I'm eating no more than one roti a day, and avoid salans that use lots of oil. My erratic sleep times need to improve. I underestimate its effect on my metabolism I guess. One problem of not having a 9-5 job is that you become random. Anyway is there some jari booti type thing that I can eat to improve metabolism? Like Ispaghol husk or something. They say it's good for metabolism? 

And yeah, every thing tastes like Manna when you eat a good evening meal after a long day of near-abstinence. That way husbands appreciate their wives cooking skills :P

That video of Street Workout is incredible. I have never seen a guy doing one arm work with a weight in the other hand, with a smile on his face. Wow. MashaAllah.

Woah! haha those videos are awesome!  Thank you All. I needed this 'push' .... Didn't do enough push ups today (for a genuine reason). But the good news is that other people have started noticing the difference and I received good feedback from guests. So I am all pumped up and starting tomorrow, I am gonna do 20 push ups for every post above starting from the Obama vs Putin one .... :pushup:

@Chaotic Muslem Those two videos are my bible for the next couple of weeks :D thanks. I won't be able to do all of them.... especially hand stands and one arm push ups....not that advanced level yet.... but I'll get there... one day

Another advice i wish to give which is really one of the secrets for performance is breath regulation.

Try different ways or breathing while doing excersize, like try synching it with your movement and hold it in different phases.

For example: when you lift heavy objects, make sure you fill your lungs with air and hold the air during the lift and when your releasing the weight, exhale as you do so.

On a benchpress you can try inhaling a lot then hold it in and pump like 4-5 times and then exhale, take new air and hold it for another 4-5 reps.

For stamina, make sure your breath follows a rythm and make effort to keep your heart beat down.

The best thing for weight loss is to maintain a some what high pulse for a extended amount of time while doing your excersize.

Sorry for any misspellings, typing on phone. Also, good job and keep it up!

    • NO, IT IS HARAM. SENDING GIFT TO HER AND CONGRATULATING HER FOR HER FALLACIOUS MARRIAGE IS ALSO HARAM.
    • Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib(as)   I have avoided the discussion of “The God” and aspects and working, so we do not get distracted and dwell in the realm( of Evil, Mercy, Love, help, present/absent, why does he not act, or why he/ she is silent, why allow all this, that is going on ) that is out of our domain for this discussion at this point in time. If there is a need, I(Layman opinion) will say, The one who  created me, doesn't own me anything, beyond guidance. If anything exists it's the lack of follow through or rejection of the guidance. I.e. If the humans allow conditions to develop, and there is oppression. Where is God is not the question. Question, is Humanity has been guided at two levels ( inner and outer), rejection of both is the issue not why God does not take away this evil person that we elected or tolerated until he/she turned on us(we were fine up untill it was happening to others). We human need to do our job, instead of having entitlement mentality, and deflect it to it's your fault God., where are you and why you do not help. We have been helped. Intellect/Guidance( brief understanding, as a layman). Maybe not the best example but it will suffice, We would not expect the Mars rover to dwell in the realm of our working, instead it should be concerned with its prime directive, and we are to provide it guidance to accomplish its work. There are may misunderstanding, in  definition, version, understanding due to linguistic, terminology(old/new), cultural (East/West) and lack of Conceptual discussion at the basic fundamental level instead of technicalities and mechanic(which is subconsciously embedded in the way we have been groomed in schools and universities). A charged and contentious environment does not help in getting to any resolution. It's usually tit for tat, and pride get in the way in different threads a that were responding to targeted and side issue out of context. No one to the best of my knowledge and understanding denies we are limited creations in all  aspects. Your creation and Your surrounding creation(s) , are proof of something that  can not be denied. So, there is a Cause, the unlimited, infinitely powerful, Unknown/Unseen Source of all this. What you(non Muslims) call that source is not relevant - you can call it a system,  I call it God. So, there are no Atheists or Agnostic here. What an Atheist/ Agnostic may be, saying is that they do not believe in the God of Islam as “presented “or as understood or as described. That is a very different issue. But this issue, gets mixed up with other issues dealing with the mechanics in other threads which are on specific topics. Getting back to the Topic. We turn now to Stephen Hawking. He proposes M-theory, a variant of string theory, to explain the origins of the universe. The conclusion of his last book, The Grand Design, states:
      Stephen Hawking is a SME ( Subject Matter Expert) in his field of Study. If he gave his scientific theory and left it at that. I would not care nor it should be my concern, as there are many SMEs and have their theories in the Scientific world about may things.  His connecting it to and concluding that there is no need for god( his understanding of what god is to him). Is the issue, I am highlighting it not only because of what he said, because he or people like him are followed and the laypeople use these ideas to formulate their ideology. This is something, prevalent, using  fiction which they call ‘Science” as a tool to attack Divine Religion. This is where this talk and connection / implication that this is the god and of you can’t pray to or ask for help form gravity, or physical laws are not empathetic, and are cold  and have no concern for the humans ….This connection makes no sense. Comparing apples and oranges and mixing stuff that is confusing. This mentally is delusional and it stems out of misunderstanding of the concepts of pray, or help, mercy, etc..or implications that ignorant people believe in miracles and angels. Or we can’t carbon date the text, or evidence of such and such event. In short ignorant conclusions by apparently learned people in their field of study Trickle down effect, and the lay Atheists/Agnostics take these talking point and formulate an opinion and argument with it. Objectivity is also an issue, here. Double standards. Scientific theories are not subject to the same rigorous, and shredding mentality.   Its 5000, 2000, 1400 old stuff, we are Technically advanced. We forget that this advancement is in Technology,(only). The basic alphabet  in terms of Social behavior, is as old as the cave people.  Moving beyond, Mechanics, working, Techinacilities and this attitude of the best generation to exist, every preceding generation had the same attitude. and we will be looked at and our theories considers as old and outdated by the new generations.  Its a Point is time assessment.  What are the benefits of the revealed information- i.e Revealed to us through our struggle and study through discovery of us and whats around us.? Do we follow the Laws, derived from this new knowledge?  If not what are we rally arguing about. If a person can't even at least in Theory acknowledge the laws of Nature for our(Humanity)  Benefit. If you were to do that, you may rethink you position, because you may realize that you have been arguing against something that Natural laws actually prove.  This is what concerns me, at this point. Why can't the objective, learned and "technically" advanced people  see that and make this connection?  
    • The nature of the Existence is to exist. Thats all.
    • If the father doesn't approve of it, and didn't leave the door open for further contact, then that's it. They are not being disrespectful. Saying "no" should not forcibly come with an explanation, thus you can't demand it nor force them to listen to you. It is called freedom, and that is more sacred than anything you can tell them.
