Did you survive the holidays, or eat too much and gain? Ready for the New Year where everyone else is watching what they eat too?
Both male and female thinspo welcome.
>Did you survive the holidays, or eat too much and gain?
As a masochist I love the hate I get when I refuse food offered to me whilst the skinniest in the room. So na, I'm still good.
>Ready for the New Year where everyone else is watching what they eat too?
I've been at it for a while now. It's funny to see how quickly so many new faces at the gym come and go.
It actually gets super awkward when the noobs assume you're judging them. Btw, how many calories in water? :^)
Man i've been trying to cut down and lose weight for the past 3 months. Eating around 1000-1500 calories a day. I'm only down like 12 pounds and it fucking sucks. My face still has a fuckton of face fat, so does my stomach and tits. It seems like the only place i've lost weight are my thighs, which noone even gives a fuck about. Maybe it would be better to just lose all my weight and muscle mass quickly instead of going through this long grueling weight loss process.
I look at myself in the mirror and i hate my disgustingly chubby face.This August i went to the beach with my cousin and her friend i've never met before. We joked around a lot and i though she might have interest in me. I asked my cousin what she thought of me ,she said that her response was "ew, hes unattractive". I would have never dreamed of a girl responding to me like this. Girls used to find me attractive. How dare she, who is she to respond to someone like me like that. Since then i've lost around 15 pounds but i still look like fucking shit.
>implying anyone cares
yeah, but im drunk and im pissed. it makes me legit angry as fuck when a girl responds to me like this. the only time its ever happened was on September 13th 2008, when I was in the 8th grade and the first girl i've ever had the courage to expressed interest to said "ew" to me. how dare she.
after puberty when a grew tall and broad shoulder and the girls started liking me i remember when she started flirting with me sophmore year. she turned out to be even prettier, but i remember the satisfaction when i said "ew" in front of our group of friends when she was all over me at a party. her girl friends started bitching at me and she started to crieing. that was the most satisfying day of my life, arguably the best. probably the best memory ive had in this life. no matter what happens im going to do that again to my cousins friend after i lose this weight. that fucking bitch. that fucking bitch. i cant weight.
6'0 175 right now btw.
>i can't weight.
But bruh you got this, just keep at it, make sure you're doing your cardio every day and you can get there with perserverance. I'm lucky to have been skinny my whole life after puberty (was fat as a kid, thinned out when I got tall)
Just make sure you're dieting and exercising, not just one, and you'll be good.
Senpai i know feel when girls that used to hate you when you were ugly and after you become attractive they all want to suck your dick feelsbad desu does real love even exist :') ?
Know that feel, I wasn't fat but I wore shit clothes, shit hair, etc. Became effay over the summer once and had a few girls wanting my dick and it is a confidence boost, but it's naive to call it fake because no one's going to be attracted to an ugly faggot whether they have a charming personality or not (not that I did, because I didn't)
Doesn't feel bad, feels great desu

>Doesn't feel bad, feels great desu
I don't know i'm a very silent guy so i know they just want me for my body and i'm really scared of aging because of that
Damn. I wouldn't mind making an account with a throw away...
MyFitnessPal bawks at you if you eat less than 1400 calories. I eat above that but for some of you that wouldn't work either.
Ok I was gonna make a thread about this somewhere but maybe one of you guys can help
>suddenly developing visceral fat (tummy getting bigger)
>weight hasn't changed
>started growing a lot more body hair
>I'm part Italian so I've always had to do my upper lip, but that's it
>now I'm nearly growing a full goatee
>I've never had hair grow above my knees
>now guess what
I think all of this may be hormonal, but I don't want to go back on the pill because it fucked me up last time. I don't even 100% know if it's hormonal or not.
Does this happen to everyone who turns 20? Am I a freak?
Should I just save and get lasered?
You'll still be changing until your mid 20s in my experience, you're fine just growing likely. Could talk to a doctor if you want, otherwise just remove it.
Since this is a thinspo thread, how much do you weigh and what is your height? Are you too low and getting some of the fuzz that your body makes to warm you?
jan 2015: 185lbs
jan 2016: 122lbs
19/m 5'10" btw
gw is 110-115lbs i'm getting there boys
>Did you survive the holidays, or eat too much and gain?
I definitely maintained, maybe even lost a bit? I'm starting the ECA stack today. 5'5" ~115lbs? Everyone says I look smaller so we'll see when I weigh in today.
>baking up a storm
>not eating any of it
pic related: me
i made smores cookies last night and only ate about a teaspoon of batter. i follow recipes and i'm really only baking for my family since i'm home from college, so it's not a big deal if shit comes out bad but it's all been allegedly delicious
it gives me some sick satisfaction to calculate the amount of calories in the whole batch of cookies (4400) and then watching as my family just fucking devours them
>it gives me some sick satisfaction to calculate the amount of calories in the whole batch of cookies (4400) and then watching as my family just fucking devours them
kek how evil
also, obligatory L O N D O N?
Gained around 5kg since november. Currently living in a friend's shitty flat with no working stove or oven, he also doesn't have a microwave. Also found out that the reason for my dermatitis was some sort of allergy to raw foods like salad (not kidding), carrots, tomatoes and fruits so I mostly ate carbs like potatoes and bread... But at least my skin's perfect now.
I already lost 20kg once by eating clean. I hate excuses but I'm kind of at a loss here. I think I'll walk the 50min to work so at least I get some excercise.
172cm/5'8 at 65kg/143lbs (grill)
how about you not be a pleb, being fat isn't healthy either :^)
hah, I do neither.
I resort to not eating much until I have a stove again.
When I lost a lot of weight I loved cooking low cal veggetable soups and huge batches of cauliflower and broccoli to keep the hunger away.
ok how bad if I ate a MASSIVE lunch. probably talking about 900-1100 calories if im being conservative. the thing is though, I hadn't eaten anything all day and I don't plan on eating dinner as a result of it. am I fucked? my bmr is around 1865 so like, mathematically I should be fine but is eating this much food at once and then not eating for hours going to fuck me somehow? interested to hear people's thoughts on this.
in other words do I need to go run right now because if I don't i'm fucked? also, do I HAVE to eat after running 2-3 miles or is water enough? like, do I risk losing muscle mass if I don't eat anything?
ive lost 190lbs confining myself to one large meal a day. perfectly viable.
if you dont mind me piggybacking on that post: if i eat that amount in a day, however, my body starts giving me shit for it: i feel cold, weak, my blood pressure goes into the toilet and i become susceptible to binging. i wonder if there's any way to supplement my way around that since the only thing it DOESNT do is signal actual hunger.
Hows your posture? Bad posture pushes out your gut.
5'8 110lbs trying to get down to 100
I always have a problems finding dresses that actually fit. If the dress hits my waist right it's way too big and if it fits it's way too short and the waist hits a weird spot. The struggle
>Did you survive the holidays, or eat too much and gain?
I did pretty good. Ate a moderate amount but didn't go overboard
> Ready for the New Year where everyone else is watching what they eat too?
New years was easy. I arrived after dinner was over and I didn't eat while everyone else was munching on the snacks
I dropped from 220lbs to 150 with a diet of water protein bars, and zero cal energy drinks in my senior year of highschool. Not the most healthy way but it proves cal in vs cals out is all that matters.
Question for you guys.
Let's say you eat 400 calories of cereal+milk in the morning one day, and another day eat 400 calories of eggs. Is the calories what determines how long you stay full? Like if you eat 400 calories of any reasonable food do you stay full for a similar amount of time (I'm excluding complete junk food)?
I've read that different types keep you full longer, but do you guys find that in practice?
My posture is so bad and I've really been trying to work on it for about a year because it causes my upper back to hurt, but I haven't had much progress. My gf says I stand taller now, but, I really don't feel like I've made much progress. I donno.
What I do (And again, it hasn't worked imo) is I pay attention to it as much as possible, and I also keep my chest stretched out and try to strengthen my back. The chest gets tight and can pull your shoulders forward, which is bad. And stronger back muscles can help hold your shoulders back easier.
Yaaas survived the day
My limbs feel like noodles though... 1h of yoga, 1h of walking, 45 minutes of swimming
It all depends on what goes into making that food, b. If you're looking for a food that'll clock in at decent amount of calories and keep you full longer get some fiber in your life.
In the morning I went to the pool (45min) & walked home (30min)
In the evening I walked to & from the gym (30) to do yoga (1h)
If you break it up it's doable. I'll go back to 1-2hrs per day later though
Okay guys I've been losing some weight recently but I have a few questions. I don't have a scale in my house so sorry but I can't tell you how much I weigh exactly, I can tell you that I'm 6'3" and not lanky or anything, I have a very athletic build, wide shoulders, thick legs, big arms ect.
Basically since after Christmas day I've felt really shit about the amount of stuff I eat so decided to just cut down a bit, I eat pretty normal food but I cut out snacks and big portions/more than one portion as I've been bordering on being a bit too big. However over the past week or so I've been hardly eating anything, like maybe a slice of toast and a tiny bit of whatever's cooking for dinner. I realise that this can't really be healthy as I'm pretty much starving myself but I never feel particularly hungry and eating makes me feel kind of sick. Shall I just carry on and see how it goes as I've noticed that I'm much slimmer and have actually had people comment on it in the short time I've been eating less.
Sorry for big post but I'm a total newbie to this stuff, any help is appreciated :)
Get a scale, they are cheap. Weigh yourself every morning and take the average over the week (it varies so expect to go up and down)
Eat your TDEE minus 1000kcal until you are skinny, then eat -500kcal until you are effay.
I'll grab one next time im at the supermarket or whatever. can't I just eat less calories to begin with and get skinny faster? Also when losing weight without exercise will I just end up looking weird or will lack of body fat make the muscles i do have look better? can an athletic build even look good skinny? thanks for answering tho and sorry to bombard you with more
Depends how fat you are. Sure at first just not eating French toast makes you lose weight , but as you get lower you need to calculate it to know.
Regarding how you'll look, it just depends. Most guys have some muscle without working out, just depends what look you are going for. Most of us just want to be rail thin, /fit/ is more about muscle
im not really fat, just very average. I've basically cut down my eating to hardly anything and Im not hungry really anymore so i guess I'll just carry on and lose weight quicker. i guess I'll look alright without exercising because I have quite defined arms and legs for someone who doesn't go to the gym. thank you based genes. cheers for the answers dude <3

I'm 6'0 and was 125lbs for a long time then my gf and I broke up and I went to college and in two years I now way 160lbs. Fuck I hate this so much. How do I get rid of this, I have hypoglycemia so I have to have sugar a lot (or I have seizures)
I'm 5' 10"
How low should I go /fa/?
I'm going slow, around a pound per week, slowed a bit late 2015 but picking up pace again.
There's a term that exists called "empty calories", and it's basically the exact same as the example you stated. Simply because you ate your caloric limit in shit food for the day, doesn't menn that' going to fill you up or provide you with adequate nutrition. I would suggest eating lean protein nnd at a deficit, meaning that you burn more calories than you ingest.
It's the food itself that determines your fullness, not the amount of calories.
I went to /fit/ and read the sticky about weight loss, which pretty much is just eat less than you take in (simple enough, but kept me from trying some exotic diet). I grabbed MyFitnessPal and figured out how many calories I was eating, then used that app to set daily calorie goals - then just made sure I did my best to track during the day.
Biggest thing I learned is to adjust your goal every 10 pounds. For me, I could start with a much larger deficit (2pounds/week or -1000kcal) but as I got lower in weight that made me too hungry so I went to 1 pound/week or -500kcal daily deficit.
For me gradual adjustments work best, rather than really dramatic ones. Right now eating 1600 calories per day keeps me full but I'm still dropping a pound a week. If I had started right away eating 1600 calories per day I'd be starving.
Meal wise I eat oatmeal or egg white omelette (weekends) in the morning, then lunch varies but generally chicken with salad, for dinner some kind of fish or more chicken.. I try to toss of vegetables in there. Sometimes I'll have pasta but I try to avoid carbs later on.. I don't go nuts about it though - if all I have access to is pasta I'll just make sure I don't eat more than the calories in my daily allowance.
Good luck if you are getting started. After about a month you are used to it and don't think about it much.
What are some recommended cigarette brands for the CC diet?
I think that's me in the future, girlfriend is going to France in a few weeks and I asked her to get me a ton of Gauloises
What is my bodyfat percentage roughly? I've been on a caloric deficit for the past two weeks, but I still have at least a month to go
Are you guys aware that no one in France actually smokes Gauloises and doing so will automatically result in being categorized as a 'that guy who's always there in your shabby hometown bar and that you've never seen sober' type?
“I was surrounded by drug abuse. It was something that was always there. The editor, the photographer, everybody was smoking or shooting drugs, so it was natural for me. I just thought that was the way things worked. Did I shoot heroin? No, I sniffed it….I looked so skinny, with black circles under my eyes. It makes me sick, so sick, that’s what they wanted…. My habit became a full-time job….It cost money but I had money. If you give a 15-year-old thousands of dollars, she’s going to buy lots of shoes, clothes – whatever she is into at the time. Magazines will talk shit about you but they’ll still book you.”

What is you guys' experience with speed? Apparently one dose can curb your appetite for 3 whole days and it's cheap as fuck. I got it from a friend once, but I think he was scammed. Snorted a whole gram in one evening, but didn't feel anything :(...
>whole gram in one evening
You were snorting baking soda.
Speed, while much cheaper than cocaine, is so much fucking worse. Gives more jittery effects than cocaine in my experience. You should go for cocaine if you can, and know the difference between good cocaine and cocaine cut with speed (popular action taken to bulk product). Yeah, it curbs appetite, but for me only as much as coffee or cigarettes.
Yeah, I did a key tip of cocaine once, but unfortunately I cant afford to get addicted. I gotta say it snorted like silk and did feel good indeed. Unlike Ritalin or the baking soda I did that burnt my nose. I was wondering though. I pretty much get unlimited Ritalin that my insurance company covers for me and I used to take that daily when I was like seven to ten years old. I don't know if Ritalin and speed are much alike (they're both amphetamines), but could it be that the Ritalin made me tolerant? Because the speed I took was crumbly (unlike baking soda) and my friend did feel it (although he could be having placebo).
Get Adderall XR (extended release) .. or just a bunch of IR and take it a bit more often. Suppresses appetite a bunch and easy to get to last all day.
I'd avoid drugs for weight loss though, they all fuck with your sleep and mess with your personality.
I used to take Adderall and with my insurance a month supply only cost me 5 bucks.
Cocaine is good for going out drinking but it goes away too fast and is expensive.
>Unlike Ritalin or the baking soda I did that burnt my nose
Snorting amps is a waste, just take them orally.
>I don't know if Ritalin and speed are much alike (they're both amphetamines), but could it be that the Ritalin made me tolerant?
It could have just been shitty speed. Hard to say. But sure you'll get some cross tolerance. You should still feel it though.
Again, I preferred Adderall when I was doing that stuff. I'd take like 30 IR in the AM, 20IR at lunch, and 10 mid afternoon... I'd ween off end of the day so I could sleep. I took way too much, had my doctor convinced I needed it. I'd start with like 5IR am, 5IR lunch, 2.5IR pm and try to keep yourself from getting a high tolerance.
what is the lowest a 5' 11'' male should go? I want to be as thin as possible without dying
5'5" 115 anon from other day, i saved like 350 of my 750 cals for today for WINE and so i'm drunk and baking brownies for my high test sister and lil brother. looking ok???
they're such an eyesore, i hate how fucking emo i was a few years ago
now i just don't eat :^) it makes me /fa/ instead of psycho
i had part of a cookie i made yesterday and halfway thru i spit it out because i regretted it
Thats pretty pathetic. You're just as psycho as you used to be but now you've just funneled it into a different form of uneducated addiction.
Heres a tip, eat healthy and exercise more and you can eat whatever the fuck you want.
>may of 2015: 218 lbs; 6'1
>january of 2016: 176 lbs; 6'2
im male, 18, just did IF and ran a bit during the summer (2-3 miles, nothing crazy at all). ate around 1200 cals a day. now im in uni so i either eat 1500 cals a day (one meal per), then nothing but coffee+cigs+ fasting the next day. want to get down to 150 by may/june, going to start running a lot more and getting back on my IF diet again, love these threads btw
I feel my body is just off but I feel as though I just cant get thinner than this* and shoulders and ribcage are too wide to be legit fashun muddle in my eyes but anyone think I can realistically go thinner without looking absolutely spooky?
Also I have a lot of muscle on my thighs and calves, how can I reduce them because running only makes them firmer and wider.
*yes I have gyno, yes I have weird nipples, yes I am completely aware of the fact it looks weird to most people but the agent loved my androgyny so idk guess I'm gonna keep them as is.
I dont support /thinspo/ but as someone 6 foot 145lbs (previously 125lbs) with a sub 10% bf, a slight cm or so of fat over your lower stomach is pretty hard to avoid, everyone stores fat differently.
Look in the mirror and lean back, and feel your stomach and you'll see how flat/hard your stomach actually is when the fat isn't all lapping over your stomach.
Don't try to cut even further, at that weight theres no chance you'll get rid of the fat without being practically anorexic. Just workout w/out losing weight, potentially try to gain weight slowly while working abs and you'll see difference.
Right now at 145lbs my stomach is flatter/harder than at my skinniest, and I wasn't even purposefully skinny, just didn't eat much/was inactive with dangerously low bf% yet I still had slight layer of fat only on my stomach.
btw you likely have body dysmorphia as well which will skew your perception.
Well I'm at the standard height of new runway models who are female 5'11 1/2" but I can't wear most women's wear but also because I'm opting for the men's board since I was given the option I am quite small compare to the 6'2-3" men dominating now so I feel as though I'm in a bind
>if i ever pass out
>that's the end of me trying to get skelly
Why one of the two extremes? Find a happy medium and ride that course until you reach your goal. The stability from that will help your mental issues (not trolling).
lol yep, i'm a much more pleasant person to be around now. i just like clothes a lot and clothes happen to look good on skellys
when i say "the end" i mean i'll just go back up to ~19.5 BMI which is my resting BMI, so not bad
I have been eating at about a 1260 calorie diet for the past two weeks; is it possible that my body can become used to this diet, that I stop losing weight altogether? For reference I am exercising very often and my net caloric intake has been in the triple digits on a few days recently
It won't become 'used' to some diet, but the body does seem to have "stuck points" that take some time to burst through when lowering weight. For a male you might go really fast down to 156, but then get stuck there for a few weeks, and then after that you'll start dropping fast again. For me I didn't drop completely linearly, despite my caloric deficit being maintained very constant.
Double check your calories and make sure you are being accurate, but I'd say nothing to worry about, your weight loss will start picking up again.
I know. What I meant was why such drastic ends of the spectrum like either failing and reverting or taking extremes like starvation/malnutrition until passing out or whatever? Why not a balanced road?
>wanting to get in a relationship with a borderline
you have no idea how crazy, crazy can be.
I'm not her. borderlines aren't really evil they just oscillate between these extremes - and everything is black and white. makes it hard to be in a relationship with them because they either are crazy, crazy in love with you and everything is perfect or one thing goes wrong and you are a COMPLETE asshole terrible fuck you etc. it's a wild ride.
they get better as they get older generally. a teenage/college age one is a nightmare.
Oh absolutely. I dated one for a while. When things were good they were REALLY good: I was the best person in the world. When she saw me with another girl I had a project with (and wasn't fucking) she told her family I raped her when we first met and cut all my electrical cords in my apartment. Crazy shit. She eventually apologized and went to some kind of therapy called DBT which is supposed to help them balance those extremes and attention seeking behavior. Ran into her a bit back and supposedly she is doing better and more balanced.
I HAVEN'T LOST ANY WEIGHT THIS WEEK DESPITE NOT CHEATING ONCE
Hey guys I starved myself from 180 to 125, but for the last year I've been on a binge streak and now weigh ~130-135. Any tips for getting back my self control I once had? I've heard of reactive feeding (I think that's what it's called?) but I'm not sure if that's something people with no self control say or if that's really thing. How do I get back to where I was? I used to be fine eating <600 cals a day without binging at all for quite some time. Why can't I do it anymore? Does anyone have advice?
i'm OP, holy shit i can't ever think of a time in which i'd do that.
also i'm in DBT which hasn't helped with a lot of things but it's taught me how to not bitch at my parents as much so they're happy
right now i'm cycling down to around 500, i need to start exercising but i'm also doing an EC stack and i don't wanna die
Instead of doing such dramatic starve diets, why not just calculate what your TDEE is and subtract 500kcal until you get to 125 and then eat maintenance? I'm 122 and 5' 10" and eat around 1200kcal per day, give or take. You don't need to starve to be thin.
Takes self control but really having this thread open on your phone to periodically look at and other such things is a good constant reminder. That's the point of thinspo for me, you look at someone super thin right before you want to eat and the cravings go away.
What are you binging on anyways? How many calories? I'll have a day once in a while where I don't care what I eat but can only eat so much before I'm full and feel sick. If I eat more than 2000 calories I'd be sick because my stomach is used to such small amounts
>Keep going dude I promise it will happen
Thanks. These plateaus are brutal. One thing to be hungry and lose weight, it is another to just be hungry.
I ate way too much this weekend and I hate myself for it
Also I'm stuck with this cringe coat cuz I don't have money
I think there's an element to cringe where you see something of yourself (that you hate and want to bury forever) in that other person. So guys rarely find girls cringeworthy as much as they find other guys. Works the other way too.
Since eating 1200kcal per day I swear I only shit 2x a week. I'm eating lots of lettuce and stuff for the fiber. wat do? how often do you guys shit?
I already have some coffee in the morning. Maybe I need a fiber supplement? Or maybe it's just nothing to worry about?
coffee+cheerios or maybe some toast in the morning, chicken and veggies for lunch, fish or some other lean protein + veggies for dinner.
I never really shit that much even when I ate a bunch - come to think of it, Like maybe 3x weekly max..but now I really notice it since not eating much. (plus I look forward to shits because always weigh less after in the AM)
Trying to get down to ~110lbs/50kg.
Ideally I would love to be 100lbs but I think my mental health is more important.
Nah this is a better pic. the lump at the front is cause I tied my shirt with an elastic so it's tighter on the back. Fun fact though - my right leg is longer than the other.
5'10, 19 y
today i ate:
coffee, toast with cream cheese x2, coffee, coffee #2, wonton soup, focaccia, another handful of trail mix, tea
cant seem to get below 155, what do? i dont think im eating too much, tdee should be a little over 2000 and what im eating should be well below that :(
cardio is shit for weight loss tbch. run for an hour and burn some 150 calories, might as well just not eat that many calories and save your energy.
for overall health it is great, but, for weight loss - meh.
>i dont think im eating too much
You need to /know/ you aren't eating too much, not /think/. Spend a week and map every single thing you eat to get a good idea. Just from your list already you could be eating a bunch of bread and cream cheese and loading up in calories that way. Cream cheese should not be in your diet, unless it is like 1 tablespoon max - that's just garbage calories. And why are you eating all that bread? Eat some protein.
Also that trial mix is absolutely loaded with calories, and the first time you mention it you say "another handful of trail mix" which implies you had some earlier you didn't list.
I think you are eating more than you think.
>runs for an hour
>burns 150 calories
>is a fucking mouse
Running kills like a hundred calories a mile for me. But since I started running I started eating way more and gained loads of weight
>tfw need to lose a stone by April for 1/2 marathon
>i'm almost 20 pounds heavier than you despite being the same size & almost comfortable
dont hate on small thighs btw. I find it impossible to find good clothes that fit properly and don't wear, cherish it
Yeah. Don't use cardio to lose weight. I like it as a hobby but I've never used it to lose weight since fasted runs makes me want to kill myself. I'd rather have a short fast, eat some carbs and then run.
>order salad at restaurant
>tfw forget to get the dressing on the side
im 6 feet tall and 155ish pounds
not fat by any means but i havent been this thick since i was a child. how do i lose weight fast? my metabolism is great so i barely accumulate weight at all, all i eat is shit and junk food and i have never been fat, so i think if i actually mind what i eat for once i should shave pounds off like butter. but what exercise and shit should i do? hoping to get down to 120 at the most
How great is it when you take that shit and then go weigh yourself?
Calculate your TDEE and subtract -500kcal daily for 1lb/week, -1000kcal for 2lbs/week. In my opinion/experience don't go below 1000kcal if you want some energy, but maybe that is just me. I did 700 for a while but ended up super tired and just layed on the floor too much. Lost a fuckton of weight though.
Don't fall for the exercise meme, take it off with calories. Nevertheless, take a walk daily/stay moderately active. But don't go running and shit.
