I have 3 kids and have been successful losing baby weight but then we moved out of state away from all family and friends last year and that took a toll on me. I’m in a better headspace and ready to get back to feeling my most confident self.

I know everyone says don't complain, but I've been doing everything right and have lost 1 pound. I have only missed 2 workouts and am working between mbf and using my Peloton. I eat no more than 1450 calories per day based on calculations, and I'm usually pretty close to my macros. I go on walks during my lunch break at work. I have cheated once. I'm not looking for sympathy, but advice. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Try intermittent fasting BUT you really have to read about it and understand everything about it!! Reading the book Fast. Feast. Repeat. and it makes a lot of sense!!

Are you sure about those calories? Do you weigh your food, or do you measure or eyeball? Is there ANYTHING that you didn't count? A small snack, drinks, cooking oil? How much is your anticipated deficit? Do you eat back all your exercise calories? Machines are notorious for overestimating your burn, and you'll want to make sure you don't double count the calories with your tdee.

  • TGIF everyone, just a little reminder about workouts: more or longer isn’t always better.

    It’s easy to get into a mentality that you need to workout 60-90 minutes to really make any weight loss progress, especially when you’re up against a short timetable, like this DietBet. But remember that it’s all about finding the balance between your calorie intake and workouts. You do not need to kill yourself physically, thinking that will help when in fact, in can hinder results, like increase hunger and cortisol levels, create more inflammation in your body and/or lead to more water retention because your body is trying to recover. This also goes for double workouts in a day.

    Instead, focus on a SOLID workout that may be between 30-60 minutes (max). You’ll be able to push yourself harder since it’s a shorter amount of time, while still getting a solid burn. Then just remain active throughout your day. Remember as well, that muscle activation from weightlifting does increase your caloric burn up to 48 hours vs. cardio where calorie burn stops when you do.

    >>Tomorrow is our FIRST LIVE Q&A at 10am PST/1pm EST. Link will be provided in the group tomorrow. Drop your questions as a COMMENT IN THIS POST TODAY. We’ll answer a variety of them & announce the BUILT BAR winner from yesterday’s contest.

I’ve been at a plateau since I hit my 40’s. I’ve tried methods from calorie cutting, IF to keto. I’m eating cleaner and cutting down my alcohol intake. I go up in pounds and back down but cannot break past 158! I’m 5’2. What else can I do? Thanks!

Once you reach your goal weight, how do you figure your calorie requirement to maintain it?

I started Joel’s new 90 day hybrid calendar and am excited for day 3 10 rounds. I didn’t do the program by itself (I’ve done LIIFT4 multiple times) but have checked it out and done some boxing in the past with a pro teacher so I think I’ll be able to hang!

Day 2 of MBF core and could barely walk today after lower body. Nutrition and water were on point yesterday and today

Yes! Day 1 destroys your legs and you’ll feel it all week but then you’re not so sore after the next leg day. My legs got so strong doing MBF/A.
