  • The Ultimate Burrito vs. The Mad Yogi : A Weight Loss Challenge

    So the Ultimate Burrito has agreed to step into the ring with the Mad Yogi for a battle royale. We've both expressed interest in losing some weight and reducing our fat pads, and a little friendly competition should help kick that in gear.

    We will compete for a little over 4 weeks, with the final weigh-in on Monday, August 24th.

    The winner will be the one who either 1) loses 15 pounds the fastest (even if that's before 8/24), or 2) loses the most weight by the final weigh-in.

    Since I'm entirely manual, and the Burrito likes his devices, I expect some dirty tricks from his end, but fear not ... I have my own secrets.

    Let the competition begin!
    START : 2/6/2020
    BPEL : 5.875" - BaseEG : 5.25" - MSEG : 5.0"
    CURRENT : 2/10/2021
    BPEL : 7.875" - BaseEG : 5.625" - MSEG : 5.5"

    BPEL GOAL : 7.5+" - MSEG GOAL : 5.75+"

                Ahh enjoyed another good meal of chicken and broccoli to finish off the leftovers and it was delish! Found an awesome website with healthy meals and decided to try this recipe tomorrow:
                https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/c...-green-cabbage

                Researched and found that I can drink up to 3 Michelob's a day but only had one tonight and there is also no carbs in whiskey! Maybe this isn't going to be so misrealble after all. Tomorrow I'm hoping to dive under 200lbs.

                  who wins if one guy loses 15 lbs first and the other guy loses more libs by the deadline?

                      Well. Good luck to both contestants but I must say15 lbs lost in the time allowed in neither healthy or permanent and more than likely a lot of water weight loss. Just saying.
                      A prayer, is kinda the same as a "Like". If there are enough likes, God will take notice. So "Like" away please. My daughter needs your prayers. Thank You.

                        I was just wondering about that.

                        Go for it anyway, best of luck to all involved, but me and Party will get a side bet going on who gains it back first

                          You ain't lying! That's the real challenge. Pretty much why I have been bookmarking all kinds of keto recipes. Hopefully if I can find 5-8 good meals that are enjoyable and won't break the bank I can make it a lifestyle. Cutting out sodas and sweets really isn't the problem, it's the eating habits. I'm also working on portion size control as well.

                          Few years ago there was a challenge at work to see who could lose the most % weight and the winner got a Fitbit. I was at my heaviest at 220lbs and figured it was a good opportunity to turn my weight around. The challenge was for 8 weeks and I managed to go from 220 to 189. Eggs for breakfast, weight loss smoothie (posted on this site) for lunch, chicken and veggies for dinner. M-F were diet days, Sat and Sun were free days. I have never gone back to 220, in fact, right now is the heaviest I've been since. I really think what made my diet successful was allowing the free days, at least then I had something to look forward to haha.

                            Since you're going keto to do it, and the challenge is measured in total lb lost, you're almost certain to lose quite a bit of lean muscle weight by the end. I like those challenges that test our discipline so I say you should have fun with it - it's only for a month. But... once the challenge is over, I'd suggest you focus on building up the muscle mass and slow the rate of weight loss down a bit. And, unless you're fat adapted and have a solid handle on the exercise programming along with nutrition, you may have to go out of keto and start packing in the protein for muscle synthesis. I'm not saying you can't build muscle in ketosis, but it's considerably harder to do than if you switch your macro composition over to, say, 40% protein. Regardless, building lean muscle mass will ultimately help you in the long run so I'd recommend making that a priority once you've finished the challenge.

                              I think that's a sound strategy. Right now I'm doing push ups (15), pull ups (5) and sit ups (30) daily. I'm not really going for bulk, just want to be lean and toned. That's the end game for me. My body seems to be really responsive to this workout routine and looks good when followed consistently. Of course I plan to gradually increase reps over time. Target would be 30, 12, 60 in the same order listed above. Probably will stick to 30 sit ups for a while though.
