Can anyone help on how to discipline oneself to diet and workout? I can manage to workout but I can't stick to a healthy diet for a long period of time. I just love food too much. I'm 5'10 and 25% bf weighing at 197 lbs.

You need to think this way:
Once you lose the fat, you'll look good, when you're there you can keep on eating healthy and lifting to build a decent body or you can stay this way just eating whatever you want like a fatass, you won't get fat if you burn it with cardio.
As long as you stick to it, 45 minutes of cardio everyday guarantee that you'll never get fat.
>>
>>35966938
You just do it. Wanting it is personal. I do it to convince my family to be healthier so they don't die early. Also knowing that something like working out and eating right takes time to see results makes me know that other things take time to see results. Like whitening my teeth, studying for a good GPA and career, getting enough sleep, and all other positive things in my life. That's all I need to know, but that's just me.

open profiles of those who look good in otter mode
that is your goal weight

Ill dump some motivation but sersiously you need to stick with it for one month having one cheat meal per week max, if you can stick it through for one month your taste buds change and the fruit and vegetables that used to be gross or bland are now delicious.

I'm still within a healthy bmi, but I'm struggling to stick to what I previously could. I just don't seem to be motivated anymore. I'll keep lifting though, I love that shit

For me, I was only able to succeed on keto. It was the only way. It curbed my appetite, controlled cravings for sugar (don't underestimate this, I know plenty of people that are sugar addicts), and at the end of the day it made it easier to stick to a caloric deficit with the lower appetite and avoidance of delicious carbs for more fullfilling foods. Zyzz said keto was his favorite for a cut.
>>
>>35966938
>but I can't stick to a healthy diet for a long period of time
Don't do fad diets, just eat healthy things that are tasty, with a cheat day once a week.
>>
>>35970430
Zyzz also died in his 20s.

Also
>addicted to sugar
lol, that's like saying "addicted to air".
>>
honestly for me it boiled down to this: eat loads of veggies, drink tons of water, eat veggies before your protein in your meal (veggies take longer to digest and slow down the digestive process, making you feel fuller for longer). if you're really desperate start smoking or do an EC stack, and I found that i got better results if i had one day a week on a cut when i literally ate like 600 kcals of pretty much just protein, and also had one day a week where i ate like 500kcals over my target. hope this helps!

OP here. I know what to do and what to eat, but I don't have the discipline for it. If someone offers junk food I can't seem to say no. Do I need to punish myself somehow?

no one can motivate you, but yourself.

>I can't stick to a healthy diet for a long period of time
Why can't you? What's stopping you?

>I just love food too much
Do you love food too much? or do you love junk food too much? You can still lose weight, and enjoy food.

>>35971395
You're already punishing yourself by eating it.

Do you really love food? Like do you love preparing dishes and thinking of new ways to cook stuff? Or do you love garbage? Greasy, salty, processed, instant trash food? Sugar-laden, carbofatbomb crunch?

If you like food, switch up sweets for fruit and eat lean meats, oats, grains, sweet potatoes and such you should be able to maintain a decent diet and feel full after a meal. But I bet you mean you like eating garbage.

Well, lets be honest, you didnt get to your current weight by being disciplined. You just need to control yourself. If you can't, then you dont deserve to be in shape. Its your choice. Theres no magic answer

>>35966938

There are really no easy answers for that. Different things work for different people, and at the end of the day? Nothing that anyone else says is going to be able to keep you motivated long term. You've got to do it yourself.

One small trick that does sometimes help me if I'm feeling shitty, or want to skip a meal/gym day/whatever, is to re-frame the idea in your head.

You want those chips? That soda? Use it as an opportunity to prove to yourself that you can abstain. It doesn't mean that you have to follow your diet forever and ever, no exceptions. It just means that today - this time - you are proving to yourself you can do this.
Then do it again next time.

You don't wake up one day and decide to be fit.
You have to wake up every day and make that choice, each time.
>>
>>35966938
When you say you love food, do you mean you actually cook tasty high quality meals yourself or are you addicted to calorie dense fast food garbage?
Because if the latter is true, you certainly do not love food. Even deeming that shit food is an insult to actual food.
