    I want to lose som weight to join another weightclass. I want to lose about 8 kilograms. I’m training kickboxing 4 times a week and weighttraining 3 times a week starting with 15 minuites of cardio.
    Is there anyone who has good advice for me, maybe a diet or something ?

    I recommend a diet where you don’t eat processed sugar. Look up the “meat, leaf, and berry” diet.

    Well if you’re training to fight, you usually end up running a LOT so you might just lose it doing that… my instructor wants us to run 3miles/day every day. I personally prefer exercise to dieting, but that’s me- and if you have to do it anyways, you might as well see if that works before you start counting calories.

    Oh yeh- brownies are bad. 😆

    oh man, oh man…;_; I thought I was doing so well because I cut out all fried food and junk and I’m still at the same weight I was at three weeks ago. 😥 So then my mom comes in and says, “So if you’re cutting weight, why are you having two bananas in a row between meals?”

    …. GAH and raisins…there’s so much sugar in fruit that I might as well be eating candy. I used to give advice for dieting but now I’m going to shut up because I have 7 lbs of fat to lose before march 5th, and it is seriously not cool.
    /end self pity rant

    Good luck! 🙂

    I was doing the meat, leaf, and berry thing and working out 5-6 days a week before my fight in Nov. and lost the 15 lbs. that I needed to lose in order to make weight. Since then I haven’t really been on the diet but I’ve been cutting way back on the processed sugars. I ate whatever I wanted to for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I had a lot of egg nog and rum on New Years. And I’m only working out 4 days a week now. But I’ve lost another 15 lbs. since my fight and I’m still losing.
    Just my “success” story, it may not work for everyone though.

    So does that make you around 120 now??
    I’d like to go to 125. Tell me more about the meat, leaf, berry thing. Pretty much I’m allergic to everything else anyway!! Can you email me? I couldn’t find anything on the web.
    Curious.
    Thanks,

    Sorry! I forgot to tell you…

    I don’t eat red meat… Only chickenfillets, fish and seafood.
    But maybe you can do the diet with vegetarian protein instead?
    Maybe you can email me too Rikki?

    Yeah, I’m weighing in around 120 -125 right now. I’ve lost 4 1/2″ in my waist and 5″ in my hips….I feel great!! I guess my next fight will be at 115 lbs.

    I’d be happy to outline the diet for you guys, just let me know where to send it to.

    Oh, and Sassy, this diet will still work without red meat.

    It sound very good to me…

    I know that you have a resting metabolic rate, and if you don’t eat (i.e starvation diet) your body, well, goes into starvation MODE and you stop buring as many calories.

    🙁

    Does anybody know if eating lettuce and like…cellery can help keep the rate up, simply because it’s food? and has like no calories? because I’m cutting and I need to know… 😥

    Hey Roxy,

    That starvation mode is triggered by caloric intake, not simply eating.
    Try 1/2 cup of steel cut oats in the morning with a cup of berries. that combo packs 20 grams of fiber – sure to fill you up for a long time, provide calories and help keep your body functioning properly.

    There is a great dressing called follow your heart. 50 calories and no yucky stuff. instead of just lettuce, try a big bowl of salad with dark greens, red onion, radishes and cucumber with a bit of dressing. it’ll have roughly 70 calories and about 5 grams of fiber which will provide your bod with a little more to ‘chew’ on than a fist full of iceberg.

    Think of your metabolism like burning a fire…if you put too much wood on the fire will go out, if you put to l ittle, it will die out, but if you give it a small log often it will burn at a steady rate. Sometimes it will need a couple logs and some poking.

    Hi everyone. I just found this forum today. 🙂 I am also interested in this meat-leaf-berry diet. Would someone mind hooking the new girl up? purple22octopus@gmail.com

    I’m coming to a point of frustration right now. I’ve been training BJJ pretty consistently – 2.5 to 3 hours, four days a week – for the last 6 weeks. I’ve been doing cardio 45 minutes, 2 days a week and weights 1 day a week. (Prior to training BJJ, I was doing cardio 45 min x 4 days, weights 3 days a week, so you can see I’ve cut down on weight training quite a bit). I haven’t changed my eating habits, and I’m a lot more tired & sore (although not nearly as sore as I was week 1). However, I am gaining weight. 😯 I figured I’d give my body 6 weeks to adjust, and wouldn’t make any changes until then, and here I am. I need to make a change, I just don’t know what to change yet.

    I’m 5’9″, and my weight bounced between 145-150. I weighed myself this morning, and I’m at 157! Previously, I was at 15% body fat based on biolectrical impedence tests, and I haven’t been tested since I started training BJJ. My clothes aren’t fitting any differently, so maybe I shouldn’t be worried. When I was at 145-150, I wanted to be down to about 140-145 and about 12% body fat, so you might understand why I’m concerned. These numbers aren’t going in the right direction. Anybody have any advice for the newbie?

    Did you start gaining weight after you started weight training?
    When I started lifting weights I weighed around 130. I was also doing a low-carb diet. I lifted for about 3 months; when I was done I had gained 15 lbs and none of my clothes fit….and it wasn’t all muscle.
    I don’t know what caused it and nobody could tell me. I know this doesn’t help, just know that you aren’t the only one!!

    BTW, I just sent the Meat, Leaf, & Berry Diet info to you.

    Thanks Rikki!

    No, I’ve been lifting weights for several years, and I was a pretty solid 145. I have a little fat in my tummy and sides that I could stand to get rid of (I swear, there are abs under there somewhere. 🙂 ) I’ve actually cut down on my weight training for two reasons: 1) I honestly don’t have the time to train BJJ for 3 hours and then lift weights for 2 more, and 2) I had to drop my gym membership to afford BJJ classes (so now I’m doing everything at home with free weights). Thanks for your input. It’s frustrating, to be sure.

    Rikki,

    i eat a diet of 1/2 cooked food, 1/2 raw food, and most of the cooked food is meat of some sort. so my fruits and veggies are usually raw. i try to go all organic. is your diet like this? i’d love to see it, can you send it to
    meltdawn2@yahoo.com

    thanks!

    No, cooked or raw doesn’t really matter with this diet. It focuses on cutting out processed sugar and bad carbs. I’m sending it now.

    thank you! i have found that in eating so much raw food, i cut out so much of the processed, preservative-loaded crap that’s out there.

    also, a note on avoiding breads, i did this and found that my sinus problems were food allergies! of course this sucks because i love beer. that’s a whole other story.

    i stay totally away from sodas now, especially diet sodas. i was a diet mt. dew junkie for 10 years. i had tons of haunting muscle pain and sensitivity. when my doc told me to drop the diet sodas, the pain went away. i did some research and found out aspartame is basically poison and that other people had my symptoms.

    I had to quit eating and drinking anything with aspartame because it was giving me “icepick migraines”. As soon as I dropped the diet soda the migraines went away.

    Thanks Rikki. I dont need it the diet personally but I am always interested in new diets and training techniques.

    I started incorporating running more into my workout to cut up a bit for summer….ok, ok, it is to get rid of my fat gut…anyway, For the first time ever (I was no fan of running), just this week, I felt really good while running. Actually enjoying the run. It was a actually a bit euphoric…the endorphins must have been running wild. Maybe it was all the noxious gasses of NYC, haha

    Anybody ever have the same feeling?

    I was an avid runner for years. I haven’t been able to run, due to having a torn miniscus in my right knee, for about 2 years now. However, back when I did run, that euphoria you speak of was an everyday thing for me. I miss running like i’ts nobodies business… God, I’m such an endorphine junkie… 😉
