Sleep Apnia questions

So, last checkup I had with the doc a while back, he’s just asking random questions, and says "are you tired all the time?" I’m like ya and basically diagnoses me with sleep apnea, which my gf confirms. I snore and stop breathing constantly while I sleep. It was kinda weird because he was tipped off by discoloration in the armpits. Dunno what that’s caused by.

Well this has basically correlates highly with my becoming a giant fatass. Apparently it can actually cause increased weight due to increased appetite, lower energy, etc, and increased weight makes it worse.

Gym Workout Plan?

Hey guys. I am looking for some help in need of a workout plan for the gym. I am going to obtain a membership tomorrow morning and I want to start this as a daily routine after work for about 1-2 hours a day?

ok.. some background, I am 18, 5’11” and I am 295 lbs. I’ve been told that normal weight for my age and height is 160-180 lbs. Need I say more??

I’m really looking to lose some weight. I’ve never really cared about it up until about 2 months ago(which is sad, i know) when I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and I just finished taking meds for it. Doc says my blood pressure is ok as of right now but if i don’t knock some weight off then he’ll be seeing me alot more.

Easier to eat eggs over easy vs. boiled

You guys find it easier to put down your eggs if you cook them over easy/sunnyside up? When I boil my eggs it seems like I get full after eating four of them.

I usually eat six eggs in the morning.
I pretty them over easy, but I eat them both way. I really like hard boiled eggs in salads.
i like scrambling them the gordon ramsey way

I think i could eat a dozen that way

Nutrition EDU

There was so much information that I now have to split into multiple post

The same questions come back over and over again so I wanted to make an EDU about it. Feel free to add a comment or PM me if there are mistakes or stuff to add. I might add links to some resources or to my sources, just ask for it and I’ll look it up and add it. If there are terms you don’t understand, use Google and Wikipedia, this crazy website for geeks () THEN ask questions.

A huge influence on your progress will be your nutrition. Training is usually the one thing people talk about but nutrition is almost always overlooked. People know how many miles per gallon their car does, but now how much cals they have to eat to maintain their weight. Some people can get amazing results in spite of what they’re doing (eating, training, etc). We shouldn’t try to do what they do. Genetics doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything about it, it means that you’ll have to work harder to get it. Part of being what you want to be is doing stuff you don’t really want to do.

It’s also not necessary to get some food every 2-3 hours. As long as you’re getting at least 3-4 “feedings” (both meals and snacks) everyday, it’s fine. Continue reading Nutrition EDU
