Forums - General Discussion - Anybody trying to lose weight ? heres my story. of 6 days 7lbs lost

I am in business of losing some weight.. 10kg or so would do me good. I am not in a rush however since, doing something like this would probably not help me in the long run since I am looking for something sustainable and I dont find the quick loss to be sustainable in the end. Over the past 2 weeks I've stopped eating my crack (candy) and eating more vegetarian and fish dishes. Lost 2kg in doing so. Hoping to have lost these 10kg by Christmas.

But each person works differently so I wont say this is not good for you, but it definately wouldnt work for me.

Good on you for keeping on with eating healthier. You only gained 2 pounds on the slide, which isn't bad. And 7 pounds less since then, so good job. I gotta lose a bit of weight and put on some muscle. I've slipped big time recently. Worked out every day for years. Some stuff went down and I just kinda stopped. Try to get some exercise in too, even if it's just walking.

Damn man I'll feel like the super fat guy if I tell you guys how much I weigh. I wanna lose weight, but dammit food taste so frickin' good. *sigh* What a dilemma...

Back in my heavy days I was 235 lbs, I am currently 175 lbs and been that way for a decade. 90% diet and 10% exercise. People overrate excerise in weight lose. It is mostly diet. Specifically portion size reduction and eating greens. Worked for me.

You don't lose weight by eating, you lose weight by not eating.

Go for a fast, either a complete fast for many days or do OMAD (one meal a day). Fasting is known as a healing technique for millennia so don't believe that it is unhealthy.

Avoid sugar and processed carbs because you'll get hungry again faster. Eat animal fat/meat and plant fat to feel satiated for a long time.

I am not fat but I am doing OMAD from time to time just to feel better. This will also cure every form of pre-diabeetis that most fatties have.

 And finally drinking a lot of wine (I don't know why, but I usually seem to lose quite a bit of weight after a night of heavy drinking).

Water loss (dehydration) because of the alcohol. Some people say that alcohol and coffee reduce hunger so that might help eventually.

I'm way too lazy to try and lose weight, I'm actually too lazy to care. To be honest I'm kind of average, not really thin and not really fat but in my experience if I tried losing weight, my body would respond with countermeasures and I could end up losing some but very soon gaining even more than before I tried losing some.

On the other hand If I eat anything without trying to follow a diet, my body keeps me from substantially gaining weight too.

Bottom line, if I try to lose weight my body would not allow it and if I tried to gain weight my body would likewise not allow it too so I just remain in average weight, not fat nor thin and I'm fine with it.

Eat normally, do more phys. Dont starve ones self off vital nutrients, just put your self into a calorie defecincy state. The weight will come off gradually whilst keeping muscle ( if you eat a healthy amount of protein and myabe BCAA's)

I've been the same weight for like 15 years now. Like, exactly the same. Not somewhere around something, no, exactly. And then when I do something that makes me lose some weight, like my long and plentiful walks, I regain weight until that same point again in no-time. It's a good thing though, my BMI is basically perfect.

But sorry I don't mean to brag.

I hope your diet works out, I wish you good luck. All the advice I could give is just to eat natural; pretty much everything that comes in a wrapping or container has been processed. Which you can eat, but mix it up with enough fresh stuff. You need meat, but you don't need meat every day. Cook in olive oil. Use tomatoes, red and yellow food is usually bad, unless it's red because of the tomatoes. Water is best, tea is good too as that is just warm water with plant extracts. Juice is mixed, good on one hand (fresh juice anyway) because of all the minerals and vitamins, but bad on the other because of the naturally occurring sugars in fruit. Lastly do normal exercise. No need to go to a gym or do anything extreme, but just take a walk or a bike to things close by you'd usually use a car for. Take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Hate to be that guy with the opposite problem.

But I am down 35 lbs/13 kg since March. I really don't want to lose more weight, but it seems that I can't find the time of day to eat enough food to gain weight. With how much exercise I get naturally, I have to eat like a 3,000 to 4,000 calorie diet in order to not lose weight.

I eat about 800 calories for lunch, and 1600 calories for dinner, and maybe a 400g snack. After dinner I am dead tired so I can't eat anymore. After all that I still lose weight.
