  • Extreme Weight Loss

    Used to bike 100 miles a day and do heavy power lifting on top of it 10 years ago. I would eat 4 lbs of rice 2lbs of chicken 12 mcdoubles a large bag of peanut mms and other random things every day. I settled down with a girl and my bicycling dropped down a good bit. then went back up to 35 miles a day. then i had a kid and my bicycling all together stopped for a few years. Then i got a labor intensive walking around all day wrestling 400lbs job. then i got a shoveling 90,000lbs of sand a day job. then they stuck me in the office and i turned to goo. i spent 3 years behind a desk getting my weight up to 210 of almost pure fat. I did go to the gym awhile to lift and do 15 mins treadmill or exercise bike everyday but not much. i spent last summer bicycling every day for my 13 mile commute up and 13 miles back at my leisurely pace. My weight still hung around 210lbs. Anyways I spent a week Zwifting on a Sunny dumb trainer and lost 25 lbs only adding a little extra food to my diet. I spent this week riding a wahoo Kickr and lost another 6 lbs despite tripling my food intake. For the most part I’ve felt great and only needed two days off from my riding over the 2 weeks. I have noticed my arms are healing slower. I started a second full time job stocking produce lifting several pallets of potatoes and much more every night. I’m getting into new healing techniques. I got a roller stick and a back roller. I wish I had known about them sooner. what kind of food are you guys eating? How much do you guys eat vs miles you put down? Which direction is your weight headed? Which way would you prefer it go? My goal at 5’10" was to have a weight of 230lbs muscle. I am sad to be at 179lbs this morning and realize i still have a few lbs of fat on me and so little muscle.​

    It sounds like you've been through a lot of changes in your life that have impacted your fitness routine and eating habits.
    I'm glad to hear that you're getting back into biking and finding success with Zwifting and the Wahoo Kickr. Have you considered working with a personal trainer to help you create a more sustainable workout routine that fits your goals and preferences? They can also offer guidance on nutrition and overall wellness. I've recently discovered the personal trainer webpage, and they have some good insights on extreme weight loss.
    As for food, everyone's needs are different based on their activity levels, metabolism, and overall health. It might be helpful to track your food intake and exercise using an app like MyFitnessPal to get a better idea of your calorie needs and nutrient intake.
