Hi all, I was hoping for a few pointers. I'm looking to get into some sort of shape that isn't a pear, however it's not as simple as 'dont eat' (or maybe it is?) A list of requirements through one thing or another would be:
-diabetic friendly
-arthritis friendly
-vegan friendly
It's a lot to ask but I imagine I'm not a lost cause. Currently weighing in at 17st2lbs, and I'd be aiming for about 14.
Anything is appreciated, be it exercise advise or recipes.

Does anyone else get headaches from spending time in the sun?

Despite keeping hydrated and wearing sunglasses it still happens. Wonder if anyone has any strategies for prevention.

There is a line of reasoning that suggests that headaches caused by spending time in the sun are in fact a result of magnesium deficiency.

Exposure to sun produces vitamin D as most people know, but the production of vitamin D also consumes some of the magnesium in your body. When you combine that with the extra magnesium you lose through sweat while you're in the sun, the levels of magnesium in your blood can drop quite a bit, this then interferes with the flow of blood to your brain and this causes the headache.

I was planning on buying some magnesium supplements from Tesco tomorrow morning, but I can't because they're for WOMEN and I'll feel like a girl picking a pack of these up and handing it to the cashier to scan. Then I'll walk out in a hurry and blushing knowing that the cashier is thinking "Is he a tranny or summat? He just bought lady tablets!"

But yeah, I'll give them a go tomorrow. Cheers lad.

I know, I had the same problem.

It doubly pisses me off because not only is it something that both women and men need equally, the marketing towards women is based solely on a stereotype of women suffering from anxiety and needed to be calmed down.

It's also pretty expensive in Tesco, even Holland and Barretts will sell you a bigger pack for the same price.

How dip strength compare to bench press strength?

I've just reached 100 pounds in the dip for 5 reps. I weight about 210 pounds so that's 310 altogether and the 1 rep max is about 360.

Does this mean I could bench 300+ pounds now?

Yes, but something as basic as food, which can impact your health in so many different ways, should not be taken so lightly. How many pounds could have been saved if everyone was taught about basic dietary needs in school? Would we still have an obesity epidemic?

Schools are where students are supposed to learn practical skills which they can apply to their lives when they are adults. To say that they shouldn't be taught anything useful, and that they should visit reddit or google for those skills is very silly.

Been a gym member for about 3 years but have only gone about 50 times in that period. Started going regularly last week, I've got spare flab but I weight less than 80kg, reasonably short, quite a large chest for some reason, next to no muscle.

Anyway I'm weak as fuck and it's really getting me down. That's why I'm going to the gym, I know, but it's a real downer.

Anyway, do you guys think this is reasonable as a 3x a week full body workout?

3x12 freeweight dumbell press
3x12 freeweight rows
3x12 freeweight flys
3x12 seated dumbell press
3x8 tricep dips and 3x8 pullups (superset)
3x8 dumbell squat
3x12 leg press
1 minute front plank, left and right plank and as many leg raises as I can do.

Interesting, and apologies in that case. I'd assumed that the "bending over"/compressing motion of the squats and swings was what was aggravating the pain as it was the only thing I could think of that the exercises have in common (beyond activating the core for stability), and that would have ruled out a whole bunch of stuff.

If you can do all the exercises you listed then you'll probably be OK, although I'd ditch the dumbbell squats as they'll be useless in very little time at all.

Alright lads, Just under a month ago I fell over at work and hurt my foot pretty bad as well as my leg, when the bruising came up a few days later it was dark purple. That's gone now and the foot is fine, Had an X-ray and nothing was broken.

The problem is I have what I can only describe as a raised area on my shin, Or a flat lump maybe. It feels pretty hard compared to my other leg and there is a kind of numbness to it. If i apply slight pressure it hurts.

There isn't any bruising what so ever and it's been like this since the fall. As said Nothing was broken in my leg and there isn't a bruise.

Any idea as to what it might be? Pic semi related. It's what I fell over and onto to.

Was it a Euro pallet or an ISO pallet?

Anyway, it's nothing to worry about, another month or two and it should go down. It's fairly normal to get a lump like that when you bang your shin, but I'm not sure of the specifics of what causes it.

General advice for finding a lump on a bone is to just see a doctor if you have no know injury.

It's probably mild RSI. If you can feel a round lump in that blue area, then it might be a ganglion cyst.

Read the recommendations at the link below, give your hands a bit of a rest, maybe take a couple of ibuprofen. If you're still in pain after a week or so, or if the pain gets significantly worse, go and see your GP.

So I've gone and done it. I've joined a gym. Yes it's a NYR, but I am determined to keep at it.

I have an appointment with a PT on Tuesday and need two questions answered.

1) Clothing. When I went running, a T-Shirt and shorts were all I'd throw on. Nothing fancy. Should I get something better? (And if so, what?)

2) Setting goals. I want to lose weight from my tummy and legs and build up some upper body strength. How do I quantify that? I'm an engineer and want my goals to be measurable. I'd think actual body weight, but that won't work as I'll lose fat, but gain muscle instead.

Ok, I'll hijack this for a few posts.

So yeah, /fat/lad. Cut sugar out, lost weight, bit flabby. The reason I cut sugar out in the first place was to be healthier and lose a bit of weight, but exercise is difficult for me. I was diagnosed with a neurological condition which causes my CNS to exaggerate pain stimulus. I haven't joined a gym yet, instead I've been doing stretches and that is pretty much it. Just trying to stay limber, but I feel better than I have for a while. To warm up I've been walking up and down the stairs in my flat.

I'm not a cripple, but I'm a bit nervous around exercise for obvious reasons.

>I was diagnosed with a neurological condition which causes my CNS to exaggerate pain stimulus.

Can you tell me more about this? I'm not a doctor or physio, but it would help to know what (if any) kinds of exercise you'd be most comfortable with. In my experience light to moderate resistance training brings about a lesser sensation of pain than, say, prolonged cardio or very intense interval training.

Walking and stretches are good choices over the long term as they fit around most schedules and the risk of injury is virtually nil. Swimming and cycling are also good choices for the same reasons. You might consider taking up yoga, something involving holding challenging poses, and advancing to tougher forms of calisthenics over time. Whatever you choose, someone earlier in the thread made a sound observation in saying that the best exercise to go with is what you enjoy. That will keep you coming back, and consistency is everything.

My personal experience is in strength training with barbells, though I have got into conditioning work over the past few years. What I know about fitness stems mainly from that. Even if you're not into the idea of lifting weights, I will say that more intense exercise will bring about a greater effect on the metabolism (i.e. more efficient muscle building and fat loss), and strength is a significant component of almost all physical pursuits, often including recovery from illness and injury. It may well be worth checking out if anyone with a similar neurological condition to yours has asked the same questions. There are lots of general resources out there, one of the best being exrx:


You sound like you're on the right track with your diet, small permanent changes are the best way to handle food in my opinion. As I mentioned in the other thread, you can't go far wrong with scaling your carbohydrates to your level of activity (you can figure this out depending on what kinds of exercise you're doing), getting in plenty of protein, and eating as much (non-starchy) veg as you can stand throughout the day.

3078 Sleep
I think I might be sleeping too much. In the past week I've been going to bed around 2am, falling asleep within 20 minutes, and then easily sleeping until 12-2pm. Often I'll wake up around 9 or 10am, realise it's far too early to even need to get up, and close my eyes again for another 1-2 hour snooze. I work evenings and don't have any other demands on my time, and while I am rested when I finally wake up I do find it incredibly difficult to resist the urge to just sleep as much as I want. Waking up in the mornings has always been hard for me; it's always a struggle to free myself from the warmth of bed. I don't have any other symptoms of depression, and having been through a serious depressive episode in my youth know the signs, so I don't think it's that.

Is this bad for my health and should I be trying to sleep closer to 8 hours rather than 10-12? The only thing I'm really losing out on is time to do stuff in the day before work, but I have heard that oversleeping can make you feel overtired in the long run. If I should be making efforts to sleep less, how can I improve my chances of actually waking up/getting out of bed when I should?

You make the most when you first wake up, which gets you out of bed and ready to start the day, levels then fall gradually through the day and are lowest at 11pm. At the moment I can't actually find any good information about what happens after 11pm though.

My assumption is that the body assumes that if you are still awake after 11, then there must be a good reason that you are awake and it tries to keep you that way. It does make sense, in nature a diurnal animal is only going to be awake that long after sunset if it is in danger for some reason.

Anyone who has pulled all-nighters to get some work done has probably experienced this, you hit a lull before midnight, and then become most productive in the hours between 12-3 ish.

Nah, bruv. Just requires a bit of forward planning and tolerance for maybe a day of two feeling a bit rough. Getting into the habit of light exercise and eating a big breakfast at the time you want to be awake will have you up and alert better than any alarm clock.

I've been slipping and getting up (and therefore eating later and skipping exercise) at around 8am, rather than 6am. The effects are profound, the more I sleep in the more I feel shitty and foggy-headed. I intend to correct this over the weekend using the above techniques.

As others have mentioned in this thread, I also swear by flux and similar programs to ensure I feel tired at the correct times.

I have fixed my diet and have lost some 7 pounds since the 25th July. Went from 223 to 216/217 lbs. I try to aim for a 500 Cal deficit, but I fuck up and sometimes go way lower (over a 1000 Cal deficit). Pic related has been this week. My Q is should I pig out and try to eat the remaining 2400 Cals? Some people keep saying I'm going to get myself ill. So far I have no problems, health-wise. Is this wise? Should I keep going?

Also, lifting, am I going to make it while cutting? Can I look half way decent? Am I going to become flabby with loose skin? Loose skin scares me a lot.

Ok so you're about 5'6", if you're male that isn't very tall, and 223lbs is a fair amount of weight to carry on that frame. To put it in perspective I'm 6 foot and wide-framed (shoulders and hips) and I look like a fat cunt at 230 (105-ish kilos).

I don't think you're bad enough to warrant too much worry about loose skin, you're young and if you get your exercise in and lose the weight properly you'll be fine.

The main things to do to avoid loose skin are:
a) Make sure you don't lose the weight too fast (that's good general advice too; it leads to all sorts of problems).
b) Exercise. If you don't exercise then you'll end up as a 'skinnyfat' -- light but no muscle, definition or strength.

I wish I could lift but joint problems consign me to cardio. Though night work at ASDA is very intense and I reckon a 1500+ cal workout over 8 hours.

It really depends on how you feel, what you look like now, and what you'd eventually like to look like. If your body generally looks flat, and you'd like it to look stronger and more defined a lot of people would recommend you maintain your current weight for a couple of months and do some resistance exercise (or increase the volume if you're already doing some). If, on the other hand, you still feel like you're overweight then you could probably keep on losing weight (slowly) until you drop probably another stone or two (max) which would put you in the healthy range for your height (according to BMI in any case).

There's a lad passed out in a doorway on my street who I went past as I was walking home. He doesn't look homeless and looks more like he just got locked out - it's a very quiet area around here and I didn't want to wake him up. I went and put an old blanket over him but it is quite chilly and I wondered what the risk of him getting hypothermia was. He's in a nice big puffy jacket and gloves so he seems nicely wrapped up, but it can't be warm on the concrete.

Should I do more?

Referring to your image, it's almost a trick question because it's only asking if at least one of your parents was residing in the UK. British citizenship is more complex than it really has the right to be but if at least one of your parents was British and you were born in Britain then you most likely are British too.

I do remember some mess about some children of British couples born abroad not meeting the criteria for citizenship, and a big furore over the fact that some of these children had been born abroad because the couples had been abroad on military service.

That big RAF place with all the golf balls, I'm going to make a complete guess and say some of the chaps who were based there may have been based in West Germany back when, or something like that.

2999 Cum query.
How do I make my cum thicker, and whiter? My girlfriend likes facials but I can't seem to get it like they do in porn.

There is a really good image floating about the chans of a post from /fit/ which nails all the things down you need to do.

It's on my other computer, so I'll post it for you tomorrow if someone doesn't beat me to it.

I found this the other day, yet to try (or do any research for that matter)

The "really good image" is basically >>3000 plus >>3021, I just didn't know what search terms would bring it up and didn't care to spend that much time looking for it.

I have recently quite smoking, and I've only just begun to notice I have a really wheezy, mucus filled chest/lungs.

I went on a run and I'm wheezing and gremying all over the place.

I've seen this product, and I'm wondering if it would be safe to use long-term, or if anyone has any experiences with it?

There's a fair amount of anecdotal evidence that supplementing zing and magnesium improve the quality of sleep, possibly because a lot of us are (allegedly) somewhat deficient in both of them. I say anecdotal because I'm fairly sure there were studies done somewhere but I'm buggered if I can remember where. Maybe google about for "zma sleep study" or something (if anyone even cares).


To be fair, even if the "dose up on vit C and it'll nip your cold in the bud" thing is mainly untrue there's a lot to be said on eating well to keep your immune system up and get you feeling better and healthier generally, and especially when you're sick.

My newly-discovered favourite meal when I get a cold is a spicy Chana dhal.

Garlic, ginger and tumeric are all claimed to be some of the best foods there are for the immune system. Chilli really helps clear your sinuses too if they're blocked up, for a while at least.

A lentil dhal is just generally more nutritious than the traditional comfort food soup. Especially if you add extra vegetables like spinach.

Alright, thanks all, sounds like it's something to avoid.

What then, is the best way for me to clear myself? I'm keeping up the running. I've started drinking ginger tea, long showers. I suppose just time.

You might want to get one of those apps on your phone that tell you how long it's been and what is changing in your body. There's not a lot for you to do really; just wait while your body adjusts.

You should find that running gets easier and that your sense of taste and smell 'sharpen' after about 3 weeks. There's not a lot you can do to hurry this, but it is a lot nicer to wake up feeling more energetic and to have better semen.

Neti pots are great for flushing out sinuses. I think I got mine for about £4 inc P+P off Amazon.
