How fat are you, /ck/?
Are you currently trying to lose weight?
What are your experiences with different diets?
150kg (300 amerilards) here, feeling like pic related most of the time. Currently trying a regular old calorie reduction diet.
Real talk, through how many long term diets have you been?
I lost most of my unhealthy weight over the course of a year or so about 4 times in my teenage years and adulthood with different diet and excercise approaches. It always seems to go well but at one point I just crack and end up fatter than ever before.
I'm just about done with this shit.
So you're just having one meal a day? That sounds terrible. When would you even have it? In the morning, then you'll be hungry as fuck in the evening and the other way around you'll feel un-energetic all day.
I'm sorry as a youropoor im not familiar with your retarded measuring sytems.
We have this great sytem where everything is neatly in order in steps of 10 or 100 so even idiots and immigrants can figure it out...
I'm 5'5" and 190-ish pounds. I feel like I look much thinner than that, but I do worry about how my neck and chin look, and my stomach sticks out a bit more than I'd like. I'd be happy with about 160.
I'm not bothering with a strict diet, just making more home-made lunches and including more fruits, vegetables, and water in my diet while reducing refined sugar, breads, and fast food. I've been lapsing a bit the last couple days, but I've been eating less overall, and replacing sweets with fruits.
>everyone must conform to my standards of measurement, not the other way around even though 99% of the world use a different, better system and I'm currently posting on a taiwanese knitting board
Ask me how I guessed your nationality.
I added the american measurement out of consideration knowing that american posters are more comfortable with it.
But with that kind of attitude you can fuck right off.
If find it actually a lot easier to lose weight when I'm on my own than around my family since I'm super concious about eating and especially working out around other people.
Maybe for you the opposite works, go out excercise with your friends.
But honestly 160 doesn't sound bad.
All the lardasses ITT will ask for pics soon
need to put on muscle and lose fat as i currently have minor mantitties and a pretty decent gut
been running recently and watching how much i eat, but working at a pizza place really doesnt help me since i apparently have the willpower of a fucking goldfish when it comes to pizza
I will not be lectured by an american about education, thank you.
At home there's never a lot of food, so it's easier for me to hold off and not over eat. Also I tend to not eat junk food around my mom because she'll criticize me.
At my dorm my roommate always brings snacks and I'm a weak bitch. The dining hall I eat at is portion controlled so I think I've done alright with not gaining anymore weight than I have.
Nice try tho
Is food tolerable at your college cafeteria?
Here in Germany it's pigdisgustin so I always end up at chinese take out or kebap or something which is great in comparison but also fattening.
I always wondered with all the alcoholics on this board - but few seem to be overweight - do you not eat? Like at all? Because the amount some here drink is staggering but so are the calories in booze.
It's okay, most of the time I'm having chicken and rice and end up eating only half of it because it's very meh.
Although, my campus has this great wing place down the road and my school also has their own wings every Friday for "late night".
I'm thankful for how large my campus is because all the walking I do probably burns off the extra calories I get from all the wings I eat
Depends. Beer benders I eat normally, liquor benders not so much. Generally I have eggs, toast for breakfast, smoothie when I get to work, generally 1 or 2 cups of tea at work, leftovers for lunch, nuts or popcorn during my conference period and meat/carb/veg for dinner. I imagine I consume 2200 to 2750 calories a day. I used to clear a handle of vodka about every 36 hours, but I wouldn't eat for about two weeks, then I'd vomit my brains out, so I stopped doing that.
Now, I generally start with two stiff screwdrivers, work and kill about a 12 pack after work. I'm amazed I have kept my job for almost 6 years now.
Not to sound preachy but walking around for a little bit is probably not that usefull and sure won't burn off the chicken wings.
Personally I found excercise to be pretty uselless.
If I ride a bike for an hour and burn 500 kcal I'll get so hungry that I'll eat 1000 kcal for dinner and it was all for nothing.
Much easier to just not excercise, then only 500 for dinner, or in your case no wings.
This is probably terrible advice. [spoiler]I'm sorry[/spoiler]
you absorb the alcohol from your stomach into your blood stream where it is metabolized into acetylaldehyde.
its metabolized into acetylaldehyde just like glucose is. Your body cant tell the difference between acetylaldehyde made from pyruvate vs. alcohol.
I'm about 15 lbs overweight but it fluctuates like mad, depending on if I crush a lot of beers that week or not. I've got a slight belly and chubby thighs (which as a female I don't care as much, as a male I think I'd look oddly distributed) but I came out of a horrible eating disorder last year. I could barely get mixed greens or an egg in me without throwing up.
I'd like to get more fit and overall feel better. I take the extra weight as my body being normal again even tho now I can only stomach real tame foods like fish, rice, and soup and greens bc my gut is real messed up. I don't feel good about being chubby but I know my body needs food after all that and I like drinking.
15 lbs is like nothing don't worry about it. As a womyn it's probably not even unhealthy.
Better to watch that eating disorder, sounds nasty. Why can't you stomach certain foods, what do you mean your gutt is messed up?
I'm just like 5'3 so it adds up to s lot on my frame is all. I can't do greasy or acidic or fatty foods BC the doctor told me my stomach/esophageal lining is thinned and sensitive from so little food/throwing it back up. For upwards of four years. I've been in recovery for almost a year so I probably could eat "bad" foods but I'm trying to eat a lot of better for you foods to satiate that disordered feeling without neglect.
Alcohol probably doesn't do me no favors but eh I've liked it for way too long
Used to weigh 338, down now to 296 (since the end of November). I seem to be stuck here, the scale hasn't moved in 2 weeks, and I have been following the same diet and exercise plan. WTF? Yesterday (because of the Superbowl) was the first time since before Thanksgiving that I drank any alcohol or ate anything fatty/unhealthy. And I felt LIKE SHIT this morning. That was a real lesson. I can't believe I made it through the holidays and stuck to my diet and exercise, then blew it on Superbowl Sunday, only to wake up feeling like hammered shit. Lesson learned.
You want to spend 8% of your GDP on education, better 10% or else you'll sooner or later have to deal with a severe lack of highly-trained individuals in any branch of the economy.
Though I guess you americans can just get your doctors and engineers from south america and asia...
well there is a couple different pathways that depend on how much alcohol has been consumed or genetics. These still end in acetylaldehyde even if there may be different intermediates.
the overall effect of these different pathways is really just a difference in speed of metabolism.
Well, get your eating disorder under control first and go on a diet later or else things will go terribly wrong.
If you're really just 15lb overweight you're probably safe in the looks department, be more confident.
I recently looked at old pictures of me after one of my diets and I still remember being very unsatisfied about my body still but looking from today I think damn, I was like a 7/10, I could have hooked up with somebody for fucks sake...
same oh god...even before I saw myself get taken over the disorder. Its such a self esteem bs issue because now I'm 24 and remember being 19 and thinking I was disgusting and I'd love to go back. Thanks for the support friend! I hope you are healthy
That's the federal budget you fucking mongoloid. Do us all a favor and jump off the nearest bridge with stones in your pockets.
5'11" 175 lbs, muscular. Keto diet for the last few months. Only weighed 10 lbs more then, but I'm replacing my fat with muscle, so my weight is staying the same. Waist is 3" smaller and BMI charts seem kind of useless now. There's no way I have 24% bodyfat. Best guess is 15-20%.
As a young man, I was over 200 lbs, probably 30% bf, so I didn't look so great. Never "dieted" and I don't really consider this keto thing a diet. It's just the way I eat now, and I feel fine. It's almost impossible to binge on vegetables, fats and proteins. You're just fucking full. You can somehow eat the shit out of carbs and still come back and do it again the next day. Shit like eating a whole large pizza by yourself, and thinking to yourself it'd be cool to do it again in a couple days. But you feel like crap when you're overweight. Like really. I felt like crap physically. Hope you figure out something that works for you.
Oh, and I don't go to the gym. That shit is gay. Just get a set of dumbbells.
>mfw keto diet is always right
I still can't believe that shit works. I'm still really reluctant to try it though. Maybe if this one fails it will be my next diet haha.
I could lose quite a bit but don't really care until clothes start feeling tight and going around my daily business starts making me sweat and pant and all that.
I jog regularly, three-four times and as many hours a week.
>i don't go to the gym
I've been doing some very basic strength training for just 20 minutes or so a day for the past week with 5kg weights since I have essentially no muscels left from years of not excercising.
But after that tiny amount allready my elbow joints fucking hurt and I'm getting really scared. Muscle ache is no problem since I know it's not permanent but I don't want to hurt my joints.
Is that shit normal when you do strength training?
It started to really hit me when I realized I no longer fit into the seats in most cafes / restaurants and I arkwardly bump into people when squeezing through tables.
Don't let it get to that point, it's fucking embarassing.
Oh, you can still fail keto if you go way over your target calorie intake. I think the biggest reason crash diets don't work very well is you can only sustain them physically and mentally for so long before you get sick or tired of it, but haven't put any thought into what your future self's diet will be. Regression occurs without that plan in place. Better to pick something you can just do forever, and your weight will dip quickly but slow down eventually. Losing more than a pound a week probably isn't a permanent change. Indicates you haven't addressed a lifestyle change. But yeah, keto is great. It's not magic though.
Yes, I am. I've been trying to eat at a calorie deficit for about two years now (it will be in May). When I began, I was at about 210lbs, and after a year, I got down to about 190lb, but I've gained it all back. I still live at home, and that is about 95% of the problem. Hell, when I went away for college, I didn't put on the "Freshman 15" but instead LOST 10lbs.
Anyways, just before New Years I bought a stationary bike on Amazon, and I've been biking between 20 and 40 minutes daily, and have gradually done this on medium resistance; my goal by the start of June is to be able to ride hard for 15+ minutes of my workout at the "5" level of its settings (goes from 1-8).
You should chose a weight that you can do 8-12 reps x3 sets, with about a minute or 2 rest in-between sets. You only want to do it every other day so the muscles heal/rebuild. The first couple weeks your muscles will be sore as hell, but that goes away if you keep at it. If something hurts your joints or tendons, stop. Either really back it off and try to build yourself back up slowly, or see a doctor. Do not hurt yourself.
You're absolutely right but when I'm on a diet I kinda want to see quick and substantial results because you know, why go through all the Troubles if not for experiences like suddenly fitting in your old shirts again.
I realize it's a problem but I kinda push it to the back of my head when I'm dieting. I assume that's what many people do...
A year of diet for 20 lbs.
Jesus. Are you sure you didn't cheat? That sounds depressing. Good luck with your bike though. Have one too since I'm too embarassed to wiggle my flabby body through the street s for everyone to see...
It took years to put it on, so it'll probably take a couple to take it off. But the first few months are where it happens fast. Just don't think of it as a diet. Set the parameters of what you eat, how much, and within those parameters buy and cook all the food you like eating. This is how you eat now. Your body changes, and you never have to obsess about it.
Yeah, it sucks. The first year was pretty easy for me. I was eating around 1900-2000 calories per day, and it was a breeze. Then I absolutely got wrecked in 2015, and I was regularly having weeks where there wouldn't be a day that I'd eat >2500. There was one stretch that I remember where I went about two weeks straight where I didn't eat less than 3000. So far in 2016, I've been averaging around 2300 from eating which isn't great, but at least it's a deficit - and keep in mind that it doesn't even factor in the calories burned from working out lightly now.
As I said though, having to live at home again is what is fucking me up hard. Dealing with what my mother will eat (she's obese of course) is like dealing with a child most of the time, so I end up being like a fed up parent and just eat whatever shit I make for her. It doesn't help that she brings home really bad food/drinks on her way home all the time for me, and I'm too weak willed to not eat/drink them even though I've literally (yes, I mean LITERALLY) asked her about 300 times in the last two years to stop bringing me shit like that.
For me it's the opposite situation with my family since they are all healthy as fuck and excell at sports, even my extended family of aunts, nieces and so on.
I'm the only fat fuck around and sometimes I think they're worried I might croak all of a sudden when no one's looking. My brother is like a flawless skinny slightly ripped version of me and im jelly as fuck. Mfw can't blame muh genetics..,
98kg, down from my peak of 107kg like two years ago. A lot more muscle now though as my job is very physical.
I'm not so much trying to lose weight as to stop being an alcoholic which is a bit harder than not eating Macdonalds five times a week.
I think fancy fad diets are replacements for not wanting to get off your ass and exercise. I also think gym culture turns a lot of people off because for some reason they think you can only get fit if you have a membership which is a load of shit.
5'8" 67kg grill, I just a year or two ago I was ~58kg so my clothes don't fit so well now.
Need to go for about 1200 cal to lose weight, I just like cooking a lot and trying things for the sake of it.
>around 135 lbs last i checked
>asian diet of tons of rice and fish/poultry
When am i going to die anons?
Im not skinny fat or fit(dont workout) but my lower belly has beenfattening up while i have a 6 pack above it, it looks fucking weird.
Wealthy communities can put a lot of money into their grade school systems, resulting in higher quality education. Similarly, poorer communities often lack the funds to invest in quality teachers in addition to a pervasive apathetic attitude among students and parents
You can put as much money into schools as you'd like but it's not going to help much when the students come from shit homes and broken families. Take LA Unified for instance; you could fund half of the US with what they pump into there from what I've read about over the years.
In August last year I decided I wanted to lose weight. I'm 5'3" and I weighed 144 lbs so I was a little on the chubby side. I'm now down to 113 lbs. I just started tracking what I eat with an app, and keeping up a calorie deficit. I still have a few more lbs to go until I hit my goal weight. But getting into meal prepping and cooking healthier food has been fun.
It is so much easier when you are already thin/starving yourself. When you're fat you have all sort of cravings and brain fog and withdrawal when you try to cut, that is why fatties stay fat.
>Currently trying a regular old calorie reduction diet.
Good cause that's the only diet that works. Anything else is fatlogic and broscience.
A helpful tip to keep you on a caloric deficit as your losing weight is to keep calculating your Basal Metabolic Rate (there are online calculators you can use which is easier than doing pic related yourself) every couple of weeks and eating a bit below that. Also when in doubt overestimate the calories you eat.
Also it's actually more of a lifestyle change than a diet cause, while you'll no longer have to eat below you're current BMR, you'll still have to keep eating a lot less than you did at 150kg or you'll start gaining back the weight.
90kg, trying to lose weight, cant be arsed to diet, but I work out twice a week now, so at least I'm doing something, probably won't lose much weight as I'm gaining muscle while losing fat
If it hasn't been said, weight is an imperfect proxy for good health. Heavy people who go from big to less big may still lack maaahscles, proper nutrition, habits, etc. that make one fully healthy.
Actually, focusing on weight loss can be detrimental because you can't just starve yourself into shape. For lasting results it's better to make small lifestyle changes over a period of time and keep to them. Giving up sohdee-pop and tendies is a decent place to start. Also, substituting wheat bread for white bread. I know most of the people on this bored appreciate fruits and vegetables.
Walking more is good; a constant among my heavier friends is that they complain if we walk for too long. This can be a real buzzkill on attempts at nature walks or, say, going the length of the Ocean City boardwalk. My thinking is that you should get bored of walking before you get tired of walking! But the more you walk, the easier it gets, so this is not a difficult fix.
Also, go on this website less. Many of the posters are assholes and you will gain more from interacting with people who care about you and want you to succeed, like friends and family, versus people who probably get hard off being mean on the internet.
t. former big guy
5'3" 120-125 lbs. Forever cutting. Skinnyfat.
Opposite for me. When I cycle or otherwise cardio I am not only less hungry, but I tend to crave healthier options. Nothing better than a salad after a 20 mile ride.
Hiking I eat like a pig, though. But 8 hours of hiking up mountains will do that I guess. Overall I still burn way more than I eat back... Hiking days I end up with crazy deficits like 1500 calories. Only downside is places with long hike circuits are a 3 hour drive. Local trails are only like 5 or 10 miles and no vertical change.
Alcohol doesn't always get fully metabolised, especially if you're binge drinking, and it takes more energy to metabolise alcohol than something like sugar. 100 kcal on the label isn't going to be anything near 100kcal in the body.
>used to play college football so I could eat like a wildebeest and I was still extremely /fit/
>tfw now I sit on my ass all day and have not adjusted my eating habits
Went from over 90kg to 70kg over about a year while being a chronic alcoholic.
I just ate less. Put less rice on my plate, cut thinner slices of cheese for sandwiches, that sort of thing. It helps that 1000 calories of booze a day leaves me not particularly hungry.
Well youre actually just getting less energy(ATP, NADPH) generation from alcohol, a lot less. Almost less than half of say glucose. So the cost to metabolize is pretty negligible in both alcohol and sugars, but the energy generation is much smaller.
I know that some acetylaldehyde stays in the stomach and liver for a short amount of time but it seems to be very very small compared to the amount metabolized.
6'3", 165 lbs. I went through a pretty intense cut to try and get abs. Now I have them and, weirdly, I lost a ton of my appetite. I used to have to eat a square three meals a day or I felt shitty and useless, but now I have to remind myself to eat or I just kind of forget about it. It's actually been kind of an issue since I'll get preoccupied and forget and then when I go to the gym I have zero energy and my lifts are weak af. I'm pretty happy with it, though. Originally I did it because I thought girls would like abs, but for the most part they don't care. Gave me a ton of confidence though, which is better in the long term.
studies have been done that skinny and lazy is massively better for your overall health than fat and 'fit' mostly due to visceral fat being overall lower in skinny lazy people and said visceral fat being the thing that will eventually kill you due to it's large role on hormone levels that lead to diabetes, fluctuations in cholesterol, low test high estrogen in men, etc.
5'11" and 212 lbs. In my prime I wavered between 160-175. I'm not an athlete anymore and I drink like a fish, which usually ends up with me eating a ton of carbs and high-fat foods to help the booze go down. My "diet" foods are vodka, less beer than usual, and a plate of pickled foods.
I met this girl and I want to get into shape again. She says I look good but I have a disgusting gut forming, a bit of fat starting to form under my chin, and my cheeks are more full and not as gaunt as they used to be when I was an athlete. Also my ass and thighs are getting just too big for slim-cut pants.
I suspect that mostly what I need is to stop drinking, which I really feel I can do now for the first time in years, and also to get off my ass and onto a bike. Fad diets don't really work. If the vast majority of people would actually count their calories and move a little, they'd see that it actually works. You just have to keep it up. Some people think I'm on the cabbage soup diet because I eat a lot of it, but I just really like cabbage soup. It does help, though, but you need to vary your diet some.
I took a two week vacation to visit some friends and they quite literally took me to a restaurant for every meal; breakfast lunch and dinner. For all two weeks.
After that Christmas vacation I was 200 pounds and have stayed at that same way ever since. I have a desk job so I sit on my ass all day, and it's really hard for me to lose weight that I gain.
>it's really hard for me to lose weight that I gain.
No it isn't, you are just lazy.
A sedentary lifestyle is degenerate. Physical exercise and sports foster team spirit, healthy competitiveness and a sense of duty towards society.
Come the day of the rope you will called to account for your degeneracy and will be judged as to whether you can contribute to the greater good of the reborn Order.
Repent now, the hour of your fate draws ever closer and those of us who sit in judgement of you will judge absolutely with out compassion or mercy.
Currently 65", 136lbs. I've been about this for the past 10 years.
I spent my whole childhood fat and I think I missed out on a lot of things plus the bullying that has really affected the way I see people.
I peaked at 205 in 2006 when I said enough was enough. I lost most of the weight with diet alone. Nothing special just calorie counting and healthy choices. Fad diets are bullshit.
I'll never go back to being fat. Now I'm exercising everyday to build up some muscle and endurance in preparation for the fire academy in two months.
5'3 and 152 lbs
I know I look awful but i'm trying my best,my objective is to drop down to 92 lbs
currently not eating almost anything and exercising 3 hours per day
/ck/ is actually a wacky board in that it's almost 50/50 men and women
I sincerely hope all these <5'7''s are women though or we have a serious height problem
As long as you're proportional and twinkish enough to fit into that svelte elf-man mode
Fat short guys are the ugliest people to waddle across the Earth.
I think the problem is thinking of everything as a long term diets and a exercise routine. When I thought of doing a diet or exercise routine I would always think how long? By the time I reach the perceived goal I would become sloppy stop dieting and exercise and go back into shitty habits. Now I just decided to eat cleaner eat more fruits and veggies, look up different cultures cuisine and try to cook it and control portions and cut out soda. For exercise routines the only thing I forced myself was waking up an hour earlier and going for a walk sround the block when I was 400, a light jog-walk when I was 350 and a full jog when I could while extending the distance. Eventually 2 years later I do enjoy running in the morning but in the start I hated it. I also lift weights 4 days of the week.
I was 400 pounds in 2012 now I'm 240 in 2016.
181cm / 65kg / 20yo Eurotrash here
65 kilo is fine but I want to become a skelly so I can tone more easily. Living on mackerel and veg and it is total bliss. Bulking is for chads.
PLENTY of femanons here, why dont I meet any based cooking hoes irl?
Also statistically verifiable preference for tall men as partners in both heterosexual and homosexual relationships
So, I've lost about 40 lbs in the past 4 months, and I was fucking estatic when I got below 200 (my goal is to hit 185, I'm 6'1" and large framed, so that's around what looks good on me).
Anyway..... the day before yesterday, I was at 196. Last night, we had Chinese food for dinner, and I thought I did pretty good by ordering Mu Shu Chicken (and not eating the pancakes, just the chicken and vegetables ). This morning, I weighed myself, and it had gone up to 203. Please tell me it's just Chinese food mind tricks.
Easily. Keep to a STRICT calorie restricted diet of ~1200 calories (maybe up to 1500 if you really cant do that) and try to walk when you can. Calorie restriction is really the main thing though
I've been losing weight steadily.
As it turns out, a food budget is the best diet.
What's your height/weight/age/gender?
That chart is for the metric system. Are you sure your using it right?
>lose a pound per week
This is pretty good. Losing weight isn't a quick process. It takes about a 3,500 calorie deficit to lose one lb. You also might want to start counting calories more conservatively. You could be eating more than you think you are.
Great I need your advice. Currently I'm boxing monday-friday and liftining tuesdays thursdays and sundays. Now the boxing is mainly pushups, situps and foot work. Is it possibly that I'm overtraining if I lift in the morning and box in the evening? I'm guessing pushups and shit are low intence training so I only got high intence training three times a week.
280lbs, not as fat as you would think since i used to lift very frequently for years. i was huge. then i realized it was a waste of time and just drank daily. i lost my confidence, but i am more comfortable with shit like no afterlife and life has no meaning and everyone i know will always end up looking like an asshole overtime and you will never find someone to spend the rest of your life with.
still, i do have some fat, and tits. thats the worst. all my fat is in my ass, stomach and tits. my fat cock at average length looks like shit now because im fat.
That's to be expected anyway. I weigh myself naked after taking a shit in the morning and I am at least 2.5 kilos lighter than I am wearing clothes in the evening after dinner and with full bowels.
No way would you put weight (fat) on that fast.
In all honestly, this is how I starting feeling about life a few years ago. Really dont see a way out of it, watching my friends talk to girls and make other friends all the time made me realize being fit doesnt help unless you have those qualities. I guess Ill be the faggot that says while I was OK with it a couple years ago Im not anymore, and Its a long road If i wanna get back to where I was
I'm 5'10" and around 155 lbs. At 10-13% BF, trying to gain weight right now.
How many calories do you eat per day? Do you work out at all?
Currently working out 3 times a week and mostly eating salads and slim fast shakes.. sucks but it works.
>you'll be hungry as fuck in the evening and the other way around you'll feel un-energetic all day.
lol no. that's only what YOUR body which is jacked up on carbs and constantly craving sugar experiences. intermittent fasting is an extremely effective method of weight loss. and if you have the WILL to see it through, results will follow
I have a normal weight. I don't exercise or anything, but I eat alright. Almost every meal home made from fresh ingredients. The real trick is just not drinking soda, I think. I've always eaten this way, but ever since I left school and no longer had soda within arms reach for 8 hours a day, I've held a healthy weight. I was 40 to 50 pounds overweight through middle and high school.
I've started to do squats everyday but that's literally the extent of it. I try to manage my diet by eating salads with my meal of chicken and rice instead of grabbing a slice of pizza to go with it.
I would absolutely kill for a blender and my own kitchen tho
196cm, 125kg. I used to be just over 145kg before I started eating less and walking. My roommates insist I never use their pots and pans and eat only the food they make. I'm stuck at 125kg because I can't afford to live on my own and their obsession with cooking every meal in butter and olive oil is not great calorie wise.
I'm broad shouldered so it carries well (and the height helps) but I'd love to lose like 40 pounds. It's mostly belly weight so all my shirts fit weird.
I don't eat much more poorly than the average person, but I have a very low level of physical activity. My job has me in a chair for 12 hours, them I come home and...sit in a chair.
I gotta start an exercise program but don't know where to start. Unfortunately /fit/ is useless unless I want greek-god level physique. I just want to not be out of breath when I walk to my car.
Get a blender. Making smoothies ( as long as they don't have a ton of sugar ) is really fast and Healthy for you. Try going out for walks too, unless you can get work out equipment. I hated going to the gym so I bought a eliptical, and I love it.
I don't need to lose much, I just am skinny fat and flabby. Maybe 10-15 lbs.
I'm trying to do it with a healthy diet and exercising as much as I can.
I'm doing well making mostly healthy meals by cutting down my consumption of red meat and simple carbs, increasing the amount of veggies, and cutting soda and sugary drinks out almost completely. I'll let myself have a cheat fountain soda once or twice a month, and if I get 100% fruit juice I cut it with water. Or I just drink water with a squirt of lemon and lime.
I'm having issues with the exercise because a lot of the gym memberships in my area are expensive. I had to move quickly and sold any old workout equipment I had. I'd be fine outside, except often it snows until about March. Any tips?
5'3 205 here. My highest ever was something like 240.
Was doing really good about a year ago when I was around ~160, then I got into a relationship and I started to fall into bad habits. I don't have a soda or sugar problem, my downfall is overeating what would be healthy in smaller portions and whole milk. Dropped my relationship with my gym. Got an office job. And just not counting calories in general.
Stepped on the scale yesterday and realized I gained 10 pounds in just under two months. Started my evening buying a stalk of celery, some beets, and limiting my milk quota to just two small cups a day. Personally I don't think my eating habits are bad on their own, it's the fact that I don't exercise. I dropped weight like crazy when I ran just 3 miles a day and did some lunges/squats.
5'9, 191 pounds. Lost 15 pounds the month of January, but I'm hitting a wall pretty hard because of a few cheat days I took reminding me how much I like food.
Nah, that's no trick. I gained 6 pounds in one day once when I broke my diet with Pizza Hut. A lot of it is water from the huge salt intake... and a lot isn't.
5 11 at 20 lbs down from 250 since September
30lbs to go. It's not even been a struggle. Cut out fatty fast foods and soda. Eating stuff I prepare myself and exercise. It's been time consuming and slow but it works.
Buying a crock pot helped me when making fresh meals weekly
5'7", between 132-138 lb
132 is the lowest I've been recently, but I stress eat when I get depressed. I normally do IF and make homecooked meals, plus I'm cutting out sugary foods for Lent so I hope that helps.
5'3 and was 185lbs. Last June I was told I would become diabetic if I didn't change my eating habits so I eat very little sugar and almost no white flours or rice. Now I'm 140, still have about 20-30lbs before I reach my current goal weight. You can do it OP!
5'4", most recent weighing was 75 kg and I'm mortified. With the holidays and my birthday I really didn't keep my self control in check, I easily admit that.
What's a good way to restructure my diet if I want to shed at least 3kg (ideally 5kg)? I'll go biking more often in my free time too in addition to that if I have to. I don't want to lose my butt though.
I'm 5'2 at 160lbs.
I was up at 170s but then got down at 145lbs but the weight has crept up on me again. Mostly the weight gain is from pop and vodka but I was really bad over the Christmas holidays. I am eating healthier but my drinking is still a problem.
5'11" 170 here and in decent shape. Since I have gotten into my 30s I have cut out a lot of excess carbs and things like french fries. Logging meals helps. The best thing is that along with some sort of lifting and cardio.
My only advice there is to find something you enjoy and stick to it. Most people fail because they quit a week or two into it and say it wasn't working.
5'3", 225lbs. I'm disgusted with myself but I've lost about 8 lbs since the beginning of the year and hoping I can keep it up. I've just stopped drinking and am trying to eat less but I have a serious problem with binge eating thanks to depression and I'm struggling to get it under control.
I got up early today and had some green tea and fruit, there's hope yet :)
Yeah shit sucks. Working on it tho >>7362642
I've got all of those things at home so I can't wait for the semester to be over! For now I'm just working on how much I eat and trying not to snack in between and doing some at home exercises
I'm 6'1'' and 220lbs. I'm nearing /2/3/4/5/ on my lifts.
One of the reasons I love bulking is because I can do much more in the kitchen.
got a flabby gut leftover from when I was a bit heavier a few yrs ago that I can't get rid of. do a decent bit of running but am generally a lazy fuck so don't stick to any schedule/regime, just do it whenever I'm in the mood. eat reasonably well but drink like a fucking maniac and am not willing to stop so whatever
I'm more in the 'eat whatever you want but not too much' school of thought than vouching for any sort of diet
6' 125 lbs. Trying to gain weight but I feel like all food tastes like ass? I hear a lot of people talk about how it's hard to lose weight when you're poor but I feel the opposite also applies if you're a picky eater.
I'm 5'9 157 pounds as of a few minutes ago. Started at 188 and have been losing weight on and off for the last three years.
The only diet I've ever tried is eating less. I use myfitnesspal to count calories and it works really well when I actually adhere to it. At first, I just ate less of all the things I usually ate, which was mostly junk food. Now, in addition to that, I eat a lot more veggies, meats and whole grains for better nutrition. Also I can eat way more veggies and lean meats than I can junk food while still remaining within my calorie goal, so I still get to eat like a fatass.
Hopefully I can get back into a good rhythm and lose the last 20 or 30 pounds this year.
Over the last two years or so I've grown unhealthily fat. Solid beer gut, but I don't think I'm quite in landwhale territory yet. The reasons for the fat are fairly simple. I don't exercise because I'm a lazy shit and I've had some rough times at work and just felt pretty down in general. To compensate I've been drinking way too much and binge-eating snacks and garbage food.
My general life situation and mood is much better and stable now, but the alcohol and junk food is still hard to shake. I'm working on it, and I hope to force myself into a somewhat regular exercise regime in the coming months. Best of luck to those of you who are looking to make lifestyle adjustments. Set attainable goals and remember to enjoy life. You're gonna end up dead anyway.
Federal education budget doesn't cover most America schooling.
Federal education budget is is 100billion vs the 513 billion (total combined as of 2012) the states pay for.
....because of this quality varies wildly from state to state.
You are an idiot who knows nothing about what your talking about.
I'm about 25lbs overweight. I'm too lazy to lift, but how I live really doesn't allow me to lose or grain weight. When I work I only eat once and at most it's 1000 or so calories, and I move and lift a lot of shit around. When not working I eat whatever the fuck I want and probably eat more than 2k calories. If I balanced my shit evenly I could probably lose weight. But I don't care much.
I used to be a gorgeous skinnyfat elf man but then I started to get a hold of my anxiety problems and now that I'm not constantly on the verge of panic and I can actually digest food and metabolise it like a normal person I am packing on the pounds.
I also don't think it helps that I used to alternately binge eat and be too nervous to eat but now I don't get to that level of nervousness so I'm just overeating all the time. It's a tough habit to break.
I'm about 188 right now (85kg) but I'm just finishing a bulk. In a week or so I'm going to start a cut to go back to around 170 (77kg)
I'm still a skinny shit but at least I'm stronger now.
>What are your experiences with different diets?
Calorie deficit will drop the weight for anyone. Even 'muh genetics' tumblr whales. They just don't have the willpower to see it through longer than 2 or 3 hours.
Used to be 215 before the holidays, so progress is happening slowly. I've been eating lots of veggies and counting my calories, only eating complex carbs and trying to cut out refined sugar/junk food entirely.
I do eat a lot of sweet fruit, like clementines and apples, that have a lot of sugar. I wish I loved carrot sticks more than sweet things QQ
How quickly do you eat your meals? Slowing down can help, since the hunger signals take a while to die down. Eating half to two thirds of what your meal is supposed to be and then waiting for 20-30 minutes can leave you feeling contented instead of full.
Was 5'11 295 pounds August 2014. Started getting panic attacks. Lost 100 pounds by caloric restrictions alone. Lost 60 pounds when I was capable of running long distances. Now maintain between 135 to 140, but have been as low as 133.
Lately been pretty addicted to large intakes of water, like, guzzling a liter and a half or so in minutes. I love to piss and listen to the water slosh around inside me apparently.
the healthy range bmi for a 5'11 male is 133 to 179 pounds. It's nearly skeleton mode, but not quite there. It's a size I am comfortable with. If I get any higher then 141 and my eating disorder paranoia starts to flare up.
cross boarder here just browsing for cooking tips 5'9" 165. Pretty much average. Don't have the muscles i had in my early 20s, but I am rapidly approaching the attitude of just don't become a fatass.
