I swear 50 burpees has to be more than 59 calories.

I've never hated an exercise like the burps.

Yep, and I don't know how squat thrusts mutated into this freakshow of an exercise. But you really can't argue with the results if one adheres to proper form.

Mike, on the standing desk, what I've read is that you have to be cautious of not doing something silly and causing problems, like varicose veins. The key is to not stand still for more than an hour at at time (or again, that is what I've read).

So I stand an hour and then either sit or go do something that involves moving my legs around. Then another standing hour. Etc....

I don't know if your inclined or care, but one of the things I've decided to do is start eating grass-fed beef from mostly local farms. That's teue for eggs, poultry, everything I eat that once moved on 2 or more legs.

Mike, where I'm at, the whole concept of organic is fairly alien. And while you CAN occasionally find things like free-ranging chicken eggs or chickens, it isn't usually the case.

Not much of an option to go the super healthy route here....

Glad to see recognition of calorie intake < energy expended = fat loss.

Look at your weekly deficit - going over on a day or two can be countered by going more under on two other days.

Like HM said, solve for Protein and Fat and fill the rest with carbs. I personally think people recco too much protein however, turning them into expensive carbs. I like 1.6g per KILO of bodyweight if you don't have a good BF percentage from calipers, DEXA, or BodPod. Fat, for fat loss - I like .33g per POUND of bodyweight.

I have no idea about bodyweight only exercise and running over 30 minutes - I want to weigh as much as possible with a low BF%, using periodized heavy resistance training. Usually, that is the way to go for a Body Recomp (add muscle/lose fat).

Good luck! (And no, I didn't read any but the first couple posts :-))

I'm by no means against this mindset, but I just find that it drives me insane to try and keep up with it. So what I usually find myself doing is about .5-.75 g to bodyweight (lbs). But then, I'm not doing heavy lifting and really don't expect that I can add muscle mass, anyway (too old?), so no biggie.

Hmmm, reading your post and applying 3rd grade lvl math abilities, I think we are roughly in agreement with protein intake....

144P 65F, rest Carbs up to your calorie limit. (Which can roughly be 500kcals under Maintenance for a sane 1-2lbs per week fat loss/maintain or add muscle).

If you went with 1g per pound OR MORE! you'd be downing roughly 60 more grams per day. That's almost 3 scoops and that add$ up quick! That's also 240 more cals you don't get to play with. Supplement companies love 1g+ per pound!

Read stuff from Alan Aragon, Eric Helms, Brad Schoenfeld for some good low down.

Especially since you aren't trying to add mass.
