I want to find happiness and balance in my life. I'm looking for people that are changing the way they eat to be healthier and choose whole foods. If you are on this path, please let me know, I would love to be in touch! -30 lbs and counting!
Now I'm giving Keto/LCHF a chance

Edited 01/26/2018: Now, I'm -41 lbs and counting. I'm still doing Keto/LCHF (happily) and now and then I do Intermittent fasting 16:8 and it's been surprisingly easy with Keto.


Member Since: 5/7/2015

Fitness Minutes: 44,767

My Goals:
I'm trying to lose 76 lbs. I would like it to be as soon as possible, but I'm OK just by starting.
Edited 5 months later: I still have a weight loss goal, but now my main goal is to become healthier: I quit smoking, I quit sugar and I want to eat cleaner and more natural every day.

Start working out 3x a week. DONE June/10/2015
Quit smoking by September/24/2015. DONE June/12/2015
Workout 5x a week. DONE August/2015
Lose 10 lbs. DONE June/22/2015
Quit sugar. DONE September/14/2015
ONEderland. DONE September/28/2015
Lose 20 lbs. DONE October/26/2015
Lose 30 lbs. DONE March/18/2016 AND August/25/2017
Lose 40 lbs. DONE May/13/2016 AND December/8/2017
Lose 50 lbs.
Lose 60 lbs
Lose 70 lbs AKA Goal Weight.


My Program:
I believe that every food group has it's benefits and shouldn't be excluded, with that in mind I (try to) eat vegetables as the base and add protein (lean and clean) carbs (complete grains, nothing processed), fats (mostly from vegetable sources) and fruit (twice a day) and NO ADDED SUGARS!
I also do some short workouts first thing in the morning and yoga or another workout after work.
Lots of water, no fizzy beverages, no artificial sweeteners, no sugar (not even honey, agave or anything) and no "fat free" products because of the horrible amount of added sugars.
I try to find balance and choose the best option for my health.

Added August 2017: I just started a Keto/LCHF program and let's see how that works for me.



Personal Information:
My name is Danny, I'm trying to lose weight, stop smoking and being healthier.

Edited to add: I quit smoking 2 years ago (cold turkey), I'm working out regularly, and trying to choose wholesome and unprocessed food.

Edited to add, 01/26/2018: Still no smoking, no sugar and working out. Now I'm doing Keto/LCHF and I've been feeling fantastic and losing weight easier than with a traditional high carb low fat diet.


Other Information:
Not my first try at loosing weight, but my first try at a healthy lifestyle and healing emotionally so I don't overeat for comfort. So far so good! (-30 lbs)

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.
