My friend's little brother was once around 162 with the same exact height and he also tried losing the last of his belly fat. He would wrap garbage bags around his midriff and run several kilometers each morning to try and sweat it all off. He also did those 12 minute high intensity exercises. No matter how much he tried, it still wouldn't go away. Eventually he realized that his eating habits were killing him (note: he wasn't a vegan) and decided to give up on ketchup, bread, cheese, etc. 8 months later he lost 20 pounds and more or less didn't have those love handles anymore. I don't know if this helps you in any way. Also, weight loss generally causes you to lose water weight and muscle mass before it targets your body fat. Look at those long distance runners vs the ones who just do the 100m or 200m dash. I find that trying to do bodybuilding with too much running can be detrimental to the physique. Of course, some will disagree with me.
I was doing some research earlier on different forum board types and am slightly confused why so many phpBB forums don't allow gmail. I have several gmail accounts that I tend to sign up for many health & fitness boards to learn as much as I could, but half of them don't allow me to sign up, lol. Some say it's because of spammers. What exactly do they mean by that? I thought spam comes from any sort of email. I mean gmail requires phone verification these days and you can only have 5 accounts per phone number, so I find it a little odd. Thanks!
Hi, everyone! I'm Sandra. I help my friend run her health and fitness blog, although she isn't even a vegetarian. Since this is my first post - I won't be able to show you her site. Anyway, I can't say that I have been a vegan for a long time. It's been almost 3 years since I have given up meat. The first few months were tough, but I pulled through. I'm looking forward to learning from you guys. I have a few things I'd like to talk about, but I'll save that for another topic.
