Started weighing most of my food recently

    It was pretty shocking to see how much I was eating and didn't really need to be. Its made me REALLY look at my food intake and I've realized I was eating more than necessary.

    When I looked at 3oz of chicken, 3 oz of quinoa (or rice) in the tupperware it looked like so little, but satisfied me just much as the amount I was eating before. I add tons of steamed greens on top of it too.

    I can tell a difference in my torso definition after just a couple weeks, keeping everything else the same.


    Anyone else doing this?

    I can't bring myself to do weigh my foods.
    but at 5'6" 146-150# and more importantly what I see in the mirror I am "close enough" .
    About a year ago the mirror told me "no second helpings!" and I obeyed

    Quantifying food can be a very good thing, especially for those guys who complain about not being able to make gains, who then find out they are starving. You need to fuel the furnace. You need to keep your metabolism up by eating enough. Lots of gay guys are near starvation in an attempt at "gayness" that will come back and bite them later. EAT.

    For fat asses, quantifying food can be a bit more confusing because often they don't eat enough calories, but, eat the wrong things, at the wrong times. They train their body how to become a fat-storing machine through feast and famine cycles, which is totally counter-productive to being healthy.

    In either case, it's about viewing your body as a tunable machine.

    Once you start viewing food as part of a plan, you can completely change the way you look and feel, especially if you learn how the human machine works.

    Buffhunk64 saidEspecially if you take a lot of steriods. He forgot to add that part.



    And add plenty of self-righteousness to your protein shakes too, bro. Thats always a really awesome personality trait.

    Living alone, cooking and eating is a pain in the ass. I eat because I get hungry. When I'm no longer hungry, I stop eating, even if I haven't finished what's on my plate. I never have a second helping of anything. And, I'm fine with eating left-overs. Eating a little, more often, seems to be a lot better than stuffing yourself once or twice a day.

    I take a night where I cook a lot of rice, quinoa, chicken, veggies, fish, greens, pork, etc.

    Measuring my meals and storing into tupperwares for the week is pretty awesome.
