  1. Just in case anyone says they don't believe I lost the weight here's proof ....
  2. I've noticed a lot of post from college students lately so I thought I'd let you all know what I did when I was in college (miss those days ). Personally, I lost a TON of weight when I was in college, 90 pounds to be exact. I switched my diet to a "bodybuilding" style gluten-free diet and worked my A$$ off, but the results I achieved were definitely worth it. I always prepared my food for a few days to a week in advance and then loaded it into tupperware containers. Tupperware soon became my best friend, and it will become yours. Whenever I was hungry I simply heated up my container of food (or ate it cold if I could stomach it and didn't have a microwave) and ate it! All of my meals consisted of meat or eggs for protein, a leafy green vegetable, and a few meals of the day I'd add carbs in, usually Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Rolled Oats. Here's a sample of my daily meals: I've broke them down into macronutrients ( P = Proteins, F = Fats, C = Carbs ) PROTEIN/FATS/CARBS Meal 1 8 Egg Whites - 32/0/0 1 Whole Egg - 6/5/0 1 Cup Oats (Bob's Red Mill) - 12/5/54 Multi-Vitamin Total Macros - 50P/10F/54C Total Cals - 506 WORKOUT ((Post Workout)) 1 Scoop Whey - 24/1/4 1/2 Cup Oats (Bob's Red Mill) - 5/3/27 Total Macros - 29P/4F/31C Total Cals - 276 Meal 2 7.8 Oz Chicken - 51/3/0 8 Oz Sweet Potato - 4/7/45 1 Cup Broccoli - 2.5/0/6 Total Macros - 57.5P/10F/51C Total Cals - 524 Meal 3 7 Oz Canned Tuna In Water (Chicken of the sea brand, broth is made of soybeans) - 51/2/0 1 Cup Oats (Bob's Red Mill) - 12/5/54 1 Cup Broccoli - 2.5/0/6 Total Macros - 65.5P/7F/60C Total Cals - 565 Meal 4 7.8 Oz Chicken - 51/3/0 1 Tbsp EVOO (Olive Oil) - 0/13.5/0 1 Cup Broccoli - 2.5/0/6 Total Macros - 53.5P/16.5F/6C Total Cals - 386.5 Meal 5 6 Oz London Broil - 60/6/0 1 Tbsp EVOO (Olive Oil) - 0/13.5/0 Total Macros - 60P/19.5F/0C Total Cals - 415.5 Meal 6 1 Scoop CytoSport Complete Casein Protein Powder (Gluten-Free) - 24/1/3 ----- 2 Scoops on workout days - 48/2/6 2 Tbsp Natural PB - 7/16/8 Total Macros - 31P/17F/11C --- 55P/18F/14C (Workout Days) Total Cals - 321 --- 438 (Workout Days) Total Cals on non W/O Days -2664 - Total Of ALL Macros - 317.5P/74F/182C Total Cals on W/O Days - 3057 - Total Of ALL Macros - 370.5P/79F/216C I hope this can help some of you out. I know this seems like a lot, but I promise it was worth every second of my time that I put into it.
  3. As the others have stated you should see your doctor and get a drs note from him / her. Take that note to your school and they should definitely be able to accommodate you. I've always cooked my own food, so when I was in college I'd cook enough food for a few days to a week and then put it in tupperware. When I was ready to eat I simply heated it up and was ready to go .
  4. Ugh. I remember when I was in college. What a hassle it was to eat gluten-free. I eat similar to a bodybuilders diet so what I would do is cooking a TON of food at once and just fill tupperware containers up. Then for a few days to a week all I would have to do is throw one in the microwave, or eat it cold. As the post above mentioned, rice cakes and pb is also a quick and good little snack when you're on the go.
  5. Gaining Weight And Growth

    Personally, since I've gone gluten-free I've grown about 3 inches total. You're still young. I went gluten-free at the age of 18 and those 3" came after 18. No need to worry yet.
  6. Want To Lose Weight, What Diet Is Best?

    Newbie here, but a great tool to determine how many calories you can eat each day is the BMR formula for women. The formula is Women: BMR = 655 + ( 4.35 x weight in pounds ) + ( 4.7 x height in inches ) - ( 4.7 x age in years ). This is just a basic guideline. The number that you get from that formula is the amount of calories you can eat each day to MAINTAIN your current weight. That is if you lay in bed all day and eat that exact number of calories, you'll gain no weight. If you want to lose weight, subtract calories from that number and you'll be well on your way . All The Best, Edward
