>>25738080 it sucks. I'm on day 5 today and I'm always hungry. I'm trying to eat at least 50% (or close) of my daily calories in fruits and veggies and restrict the lean meats to 3oz per meal as is recommended, but I just feel crappy about it and I miss sugary foods like cereal and cookies and ice cream.
also, my parents threw me out of the house so now I've just got a massive bag of unwashed, unpeeled and raw produce and that's like my only food.
>>25738201 Google says a slice of Costco pepperoni is 720 cals, and the whole pie is 6 slices.4320 cals is about double what you should eat in a day, and nearly triple what you should eat on a diet in one sitting.
the only reason I'm on a diet is because I'm going to bootcamp in a month, I'm down from 185 to 164 in two months by sticking to 1200 calories a day, plus 300 calories and crunches which must burn some calories.
Push-ups aren't making me stronger though... only able to do more push-ups. Yesterday I was trying to unflod a table and I couldn't do it and some guy over the weight limit did it easily. Idk.
>>25738080 >1500 cal deficit >started in june at 265ish, 6'3" >went well for most of the time >stalled hard during holiday season nov/dec >now back on track, 215 >still would like nothing more than to pig the fuck out
Heaviest I ever got was about 300 pounds. I honestly find it hard to see a difference. I'm hoping to lose 20-30 lbs to reach a nice cut look. Who knows, I'll see when I'm closer how much further I need to go.
>be emaciated manlet >find some 20 pound dumbbells in my house >do bicep, tricep, trapezius, back, and shoulder exercises >struggle to even do 10 reps of shoulder exercises >left shoulder hurts literally 2 days after doing it
>>25738080 Pretty good. I learned that sugarless and carbless sweets can actually be delicious and I still lose weight.
>>25738326 That is shitty as fuck about your situation. I'd cut the fruit a bit and eat more of the veg, senpai. Sugar even from fruit can actually hinder your weight loss. While this isn't going to help much with your life at the moment, the more meat and protein you get into your system, the less you'll feel hungry and your cravings will get better.
>didn't diet but slowly changed my eating habits over time >almost no sweets, almost no sugar >lots more fruit and vegetables >start buying food more consciously, pay particular attention to fat and sugar but dont bother counting calories >eat three times a day with fruit as inbetween snacks >start going to yoga class once a week, sweat and become flexible >feel way better about myself, he this is fun >lose 22 pounds within a few months >spend a few hundred bucks on new /fa/ clothing >spend a few more bucks on beauty products >bein to be more self confident as girls begin to show interest >as a result of confidence and positivity, even more interest >have a date on friday >unless she makes up with her ex today/spoiler]
I think a slow but consistent change of eating habits and food buying behavior works much better that any crass diet in the long run but you have to combine it with sports, the regular yoga really helps and its more motivating if you have a set date and do it with others
>>25738271 Try go mad. A gallon of milk a day. Get whole milk, it's so rich and delicious. I found it easier to eat enough when it takes zero prep and I can drink it instead of eating. You don't feel full and can get it all down. This is how I finally broke out of skeleton life. Then I started lifting too but that's another story.
About to kick my ass into gear and start dieting/exercising properly again. In the past I lost 200 lbs and got fucking jacked as hell, but then sperged out and put a lot of it back on. Oh well, I did it before I can do it again. Hardest part is just staying motivated/disciplined enough to stick with it.
>eat light for most of the day, eat balanced meals >evening rolls around, urge to snack becomes strong >eat ice cream, want more >eat cereal, want more >eat chips etc. >after 4 hours of constant eating realize what I've done and get really depressed and want to die
Usually how my days go
Keeping weight off is a struggle. I eat because I'm sad and it feels good in the moment, and eating makes me feel bad about myself, so I eat to feel good again for a bit and so on and so on
>>25742104 if you diet alone, yes. i didn't need one of these starting out, but i also exercised. it's not hard to estimate how many calories you're eating though. you start to take note of what food has what calories and after eating it you remember how full it leaves you.
once you start lifting weight then it becomes a different story and having a food scale is non-negotiable. you want to be sure how many calories you've had in a day, otherwise you run the risk of wasting the day not building muscle and if you ever cut weight, you need to be sure about your portions.
>>25739414 You're honestly a fucking champ and I'm proud of you, keep it up bro. I recently started doing something similar except I'm doing HIIT and completely cut every form of carb out of my diet. I'm a sucker for sweet tea lol.
>>25744707 >food scales illegal food scales are not illegal. they're integral for baking. they're also different than digital pocket scales, which measure in much more precise amounts and are commonly used for drugs.
I still doubt pocket scales are illegal where you live but they might be.
>>25744831 >it's as real as anorexia though hardly addressed I can believe that. I used to be anorexic no im a boy
>be me in 5th grade >was a little pudgy but not enough to be considered fat >brothers teased me relentlessly >certain classmates teased me >stop eating, save for maybe once a day >mom noticed i dont eat >mockingly asks me if im anorexic and calls me a girl >despised getting teased and still kept eating to minimum >puberty happens >notice i don't grow all that much compared to brothers and still super skinny >get to high school and start to get made fun of for being tiny and too young looking >start to hate that too >try to eat to gain weight and bulk >too many years of minimal eating fucked my growth as well as my capacity to eat enough food >nearly 8 years out of high school and still have trouble holding weight >still small wtf did I do to myself
Really well. High fat low carb is where it's at! I eat eggs, meat, and veggies all day covered in butter and olive oil. I don't feel hungry all the time, don't wake up and want to eat a horse, and my wife said my face already looks thinner.
>>25744939 God forbid people take care of their bodies anon. Yeah, I may be small, but that doesn't make me less of a man. Plus, the idea of not having heart failure at 30 is kind of nice. Go away tubby
>>25744501 This is the way I deal with it. Would you rather have 5 minutes of pleasure followed by 2 hours of sadness and regret? Or would you rather have a whole lifetime of rejecting stacies and feeling amazing about yourself?
It's still pretty fucking hard not going to lie m80. I'm 1.5 months in and I've lost 13 pounds, been fluctuating though because of Christmas and generally being a fat shit. But I'm back on track now, my stomach feels smaller, my legs feel stronger and I feel slightly better. Still have a hell of a long way to go though.
>>25738080 I started doing exercise 2 hours everyday 4 days ago and i haven't eaten pretty much anything in those 4 days. And i mean seriously anything, some rice two days ago and thats it i think. I feel kinda weak and tired but i will try to keep this up.
3rd day out of 7 on a veggiesoup & fruits crash diet.
Yesterday I felt so disgusted with the soup I only had one bowl and some broccoli, probably only had 250ish kcal all day. Felt tired, cold and had a headache all day. Felt like complete ass. Feel a bit better today. Gonna stick it out, but when I'm done I think I'd rather get my fat ass on a treadmill than suffer this horrid ass soup.
