    How long can you stay on this psmf diet?

    From the research that I’ve done, it seems that generally the maximum recommended period of time for PSMF is no more than eight months. This is the doctor recommended amount, and anything longer would require the guidance of a nutritionist or medical professional. It’s also going to vary...

    How long should I do PSMF to achieve my ideal body weight?

    Well, given that we don’t have a lot of information to work with, I can’t really say how long it would take you to reach your ideal body weight. However, what I can say is that it generally isn’t recommended to continue a PSMF diet for longer than eight months. The fact is that while it might...

    Cheese Sticks

    There is one thing I have to mention, and that is you should freeze the cheese before you fry it. I found out the hard way that frying fresh cheese is going to result in just a melted blob of cheese as opposed to a stick. I suppose it also might vary on the kind of cheese that you use, but in...

    How good is lipton yellow label black tea

    Just about any kind of tea is going to be beneficial for weight loss. The reason people recommend taking tea without milk is because milk is going to add (what some people feel are) unnecessary calories. When dieting, you want to reduce your caloric consumption to just the necessities, so some...

    Inability to lose weight even on this diet?

    I was going to point out that you should probably get your thyroid checked out, but given that you said your hormones are all normal, that crosses that off the list of potential issues. My next question would be, are you looking at the scale or at the mirror? You mentioned that you lift three...

    Salad Dressing

    I'm an incredibly simple man so I've never gone too complicated with my salad dressings. I'm mostly a fan of vinaigrette dressings, and there are two that I use in particular. The first is a balsamic vinaigrette, made by combining 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 1...

    Do you like fitness apps?

    I can't really say that I care for fitness apps very much. Then again, I've only really ever used two of them. The first one was some calorie counter which I've forgotten the name of. It was meant to have a database of just about every food, and you'd input the food and serving size, and it...

    Heartburn

    There are a number of factors that could be triggering your heartburn. As was already mentioned here, foods that are fried or naturally high in fat content can promote indigestion and heartburn since they are heavy on the stomach's digestive process. Sugar is notorious for causing heartburn as...

    Getting enough protein with psmf

    I'm going to assume that that calculations were correct, but 257g seems a little high to me depending on your activity level and body weight. None the less, I can see how it would be hard to hit that number, but it's doable. For starters, protein supplements are pretty much a must, powders in...

    Keto diet works for me!

    Recently, I actually had a discussion about ketogenic diets in another forum. I wasn't all too familiar with the concept of keto diets, so I ended up doing a ton of research on it in order to get a better understanding. For those unfamiliar, the basic idea behind any keto diet is that it is...

    Favorite Snacks while on a psmf diet?

    Please don't quote me out of context when I say this, but...I love nuts. Seriously, if you want me to fall in love with you, all you need to do is get me one of those trays of mixed nuts. Cashews, almonds, pistachios, macadamia, peanuts, hazelnuts, you name it. Not only are they loaded with...

    Egg Whites

    It isn't recommended to eat raw egg whites due to the fact that they inhibit the absorption of a key vitamin called biotin, also known as Vitamin H. The thing is that egg whites have a protein called avidin, which when consumed raw, binds to the biotin in your body and prevents it from being...

    Intermittent Fasting and Psmf Diet?

    Intermittent fasting can be a really effective way of losing weight. I'm currently doing OMAD (one meal a day) and my body feels incredible. I don't feel nearly as bloated or fatigued as I used to. That being said, I don't think I would use both OMAD and PSMF at the same time for an extended...

    Would I benefit from doing this once a week?

    To be completely honest, probably not. While it certainly wouldn't do you any harm, the odds are that any benefits received would be almost entirely negligible in the short term. It's obviously also going to depend on what your diet is like the rest of the week. If you do PSMF once a week and...

    What are your goals?

    I used to be really into working out, and I had that typical "gym bro" mentality. It was always about getting swole and benching more than you did the week before. I guess my main motivation was just to get buff for the ladies. Eventually I started meeting more and more women that actually...

    Exercises and eating healthy

    Ideally, I alternate between strength training and cardio on a daily basis. Every week I try and do three days of strength training, with three days of cardio, and take Sunday off. For strength training, I have a body weight circuit that I've made for myself and do at home every morning...

    Yes or No to Gym. Unsure.

    You can't eat healthy food because you're so dead set on eating processed and takeout foods? You realize how bad that sounds, right? My friend, not to judge you in advance, but if you can't convince yourself to even try and change your diet, then I sincerely doubt you'll last more than a couple...

    Is bike-riding a good exercise for losing weight?

    Literally anything can be an effective form of exercise if you do it with the right amount of intensity. The key to burning calories through exercise is raising your heart rate way above your resting rate. You can ride for miles, but if you're not riding hard enough to get your heart pumping...

    Ground Meat and Fat Content

    I don't know if I'd go so far as to rinse it, but cooking it certainly helps. The best thing to do is to get very lean ground meat right from the start. Many butchers provide ground meat with different ratios of fat for different cooking purposes. Either way, all ground meat is going to have...

    Protein per sitting with psmf?

    The whole point behind a PSMF diet is to introduce the minimally required amount of protein to your diet while minimizing caloric intake. When and how you get this protein is completely up to you. If you perform any sort of exercise, strength training in particular, I'd recommend you get the...
