Who here is on a /diet/?

I'm 5'4 and 165lb and trying to lose some weight. I started a diet yesterday. Trying to eat lots of veg and lean proteins and keeping my total calorie intake below 800.I'm so hungry tho
How's your diet going?

I'm currently 5"4 and 136, trying to get down to 120-something. I was 150 during the end of Summer and after tweaking my eating habits I ended up losing a bit of weight. I try to eat a big meal once a day, a practice I picked up from intermediate fasting, I usually don't feel that hungry in the morning so this works really well. I still drink water/coffee and eat snacks during the afternoon, typically fruits but eating a big meal once a day has helped curb my binging issue.

I have yet to start exercising though, my university has a huge gym so I'll probably take advantage of that and start.

Anonymous 6213

I’m 5’7” and 159, came down from 187 by eating sub-600 calories per day on and off with occasional fasting.

I’m trying to get down to my old weight of 130 but have been having a rough time the past couple of months. After cutting alcohol out of my diet (the reason I’m fat to begin with) I’ve picked up a new habit of stuffing my face all the time so I’ve been only maintaining.

Anonymous 6215

800 a day seems too low, I'd recommend 1200 instead so you don't crash and burn.

Anonymous 6225


I'm 5'9 and 145 lbs. I started at 160 lbs and lost 15 lbs in like 2 months, it pretty much melted off on ~1000-1300kcal a day.

But now that I'm at 145lbs it's so much harder to lose.. my end goal is 130lbs (19.2 bmi) but it's so difficult now! I'll eat 1200kcal for a week and barely lose 1 pound, where as before it was dropping like crazy. I'm very meticulous with calorie counting so it pissed me off and I stopped trying.

Trying to get back on it now though, any tips for losing the final 15?

Anonymous 6227


Why stop what's working so well for you, even if the results slowed down? That initial burst of loss always feels great for weight loss, but committing to the dietary long haul is always the biggest bitch in the grand scheme.

Sticking to it, and adding the smallest bit of extra cardio is probably your best bet to be where you want to be!

Anonymous 6228

It kinda sucks because i lost the weight while I was out of school/work and had little to no responsibilities. Eating less than 1300 calories at my height is actually suffering if I have a lot to do between 12 hours shifts and studying. I've just been eating at maintenance since everything got busy.

I have no idea how people eat at a deficit when they have shit going on. I guess i dont know how to lose in a healthy way?

Anonymous 6231

You need to focus more on getting as much protein out of your calories rather than being sure to make the minimum caloric intake. That way you don't get too weak.

Anonymous 6233

I'm trying to eat 1000 calories a day but I keep failing. Yesterday i ate 1600 and wanted to kms literally. I'm about the same stats as you. 5'3 154.4 lbs

Anonymous 6235


I'm the same height as you. Years ago when I was in college I did 1200 calories a day with the help of frozen vegetables and cheap fish. I could still fit in a beer or treat now and then. I think I was around 115 pounds then? So you would easily still lose weight even with just a few hundred more calories a day. Focus on nutrient-rich foods.

But the stress of school and such low calorie intake was really hard on my body. Take care of yourself please.

Thanks for the suggestions. It's not the bullying that bothers me, I prefer places online where users can get feisty rather than bubble wrapped experiences.

stop doing that shit.

The average woman needs about 1900-2100 for maintenance. to lose weight at about one pound a week you need to get about 1500ish. Actually starving yourself for a long period of time will do jack shit once your metabolism catches up or alternatively your body thinks you're actually starving and starts eating your muscles.
Please for the love of god just get 1400~ calories a day, 40% protein, avoid simple carbs and the unhealthy kinds of fat, and do a bit of cardio every day. Like just run/swim/bike or whatever for 20 minutes a day , power through the sure muscles, they'll go away after you get used to exercising.

Don't do extreme shit please thank you

This is boomer logic if I've ever heard it. I lost 40 lbs on 500 calories per day, and even though I've gone back to a normal diet of 1600 calories per day I've kept it off.

Can’t argue with results though. Some of us like being skinny, not some doughy skinnyfat who eats 1600 calories every day.

Also who you calling whale, whale? You’re the one getting triggered over dieting so it makes more sense that you’re the bitter fat pig.

Anonymous 6262

You get results, but you don't learn how to eat a normal, healthy diet by fasting. You just learn how to starve and then go back to your shitty binge diet that got you there in the first place. Definition of yo-yoing, sounds horrible for you. It's all about learning how to manage the calories you have (depending on whether you're maintaining or losing) in a healthy way through a healthy deficit.

>a whale or a fat pig
lmaoo ok girl, I'm not jealous of some immature ana-chan who starves herself on 500kcals a day. There's dieting, and then there's starving yourself. Enjoy the loose skin and stretch marks!

My bmi is 20.8 anyway, on my way down to end goal of 19.4 in maybe 2 months

Like I said, I completely agree with you. When I was poor and depressed I lost 30 pounds but gained it all back through shitty eating and entered a cycle of binging and fasting that fucked up my metabolism. I’m losing weight at a slower pace now through eating right and exercise and I definitely prefer it since my mind is much clearer and I’m more muscular now.

>"My bmi is 20.8 anyway,"
>actually believing this isn't fat
Holy fuck my sides.

A BMI of 20-21 might not be clinically ~overweight~ but it's still chubby. Unless you're a literal body builder (which I highly doubt since you're sitting on your ass getting butthurt on an imageboard instead of spending those hours at the gym) you still have a bloated face, flabby stomach, saddlebags, thighs that touch and cellulite.

Also 500-800 calories per day isn't automatically anorexia you absolute dumbass. The posters ITT talking about eating that amount to lose weight are all still clinically overweight based on their stats therefore don't meet the diagnostic criteria to be anorexic, which requires you to be severely underweight and malnourished.

But go on ahead dumb bitch, continue whining about not being able to find a community online to whine with other fatties about not being able to reach your skinnyfat goal that is only 10kg less than your current weight. Maybe stop stuffing your fat face full of 1200 calories and do things the efficient way like the rest of us. Once you see actual results maybe and reach your goal you'll realize what a fucking retard you're being.

IF is a really good diet program and it's easy to follow. Best thing is that it's realistic (unless you have really early mornings and even then you can shift the 8 hr window a bit). You can do it!!! 149lbs really isn't too bad of a starting point.

I've been in the 170s for most of my adult life, but my weight has yoyo-ed between 145 (I was like 15 and abused laxatives) and 200+ since I hit puberty.

Sob story alert I lost the initial weight like a year ago as a result of the stress of my then bf abusing and cheating on me. I didn't eat and the weight fell off shrug don't do this ladies

Rn I'm just trying to maintain my current weight loss and possibly lose like 20 more lbs.
I love exercising, even did it when I was heavy, but I can't run outside during the day without feeling like a fucking idiot. My biggest diet struggle is my sweet tooth and my tendency to get bored of food pretty quickly lmao.

i started at 145 pounds / 5’4, i’m now down to 105. i think i slowly slipped into an eating disorder after becoming sick and not being able to eat over 500 calories for like a week straight, my appetite changed drastically so it was physically harder to eat more and seeing the number go down was very pleasing after being pretty much overweight or chubby for all of my life prior. it’s very scary as sometimes i’ve fainted or gotten very very bad ‘brain fog’ where i cannot speak correctly without stuttering or pronouncing things correctly.

I've managed to lose a lot of weight after I got over a horrible episode of depression, which I'm quite proud of. I've been eating small portions often and been using one of those complete food drinks (not soylent, but huel) which is very handy when I'm too lazy to cook. Makes my shits coherent af too.

I'm quite happy with my current weight so I don't want to lose a lot more. I'm more trying to gain muscle in my arms and torso, so I have more strength and stamina for going out camping in the woods, things like that.

Also top kek at the fact that you base your appearance around what you think men want. The whole “men only like curvy girls” meme was put in place by fatties that were jealous of thinner, more attractive women anyway.

Anonymous 6329

BMIs are a worn out, retarded meme. Some people look attractive and fit at "overweight" BMIs while others look like shit at lower BMIs. Muscle mass plays a huge role in this. Having a 19 BMI doesn't guarantee you're not going to be a flabby blob anymore if you happen to be a couch potato.

Yeah fucking right. Have a tiny bit of self control and stop eating. normal bmi ranges are HUUGE, JUST fall within normal!!!

You are just so complacent with the way everything is r/t obesity. Coddling fat people is just making the overweight/obesity rates rise and is ruining the health of this nation. Accepting it is NOT ok. I finished college too, gained a bit throughout (still in a healthy range) and lost it.

If you think fat people only affect themselves you are so so wrong. and if you think there is nothing wrong with the % of obese/overweight you're so messed up.

If you worked in healthcare for a month you would resent the obese and overweightpeople that grace our halls with health issues they are way too young to have, and the obese inpatients that are SO rude and uncompliant and strain the backs of every health care worker in the area. I've had ~30yr olds that cant even wash themselves bc theyre so fucking fat.

That doesn’t sound like “an excuse for obesity”. It’s true that you’ll look slimmer at certain weights if you build muscle than if you have almost no muscle. What you’re looking at then is solid fat instead of lean body mass.

Yes that is obviously true, but BMI is still a good indicator for health (or hip to waist ratio) and if youre fit muscle wont tip you into obese/overweight unless youre jacked. But i see muscle used as an excuse by overweight people all the time, so maybe the anon didnt intend to mean it in an excusey way.

Anyway this argument is pretty tiring, i think youre alright for trying to make changes to lose weight. But honestly i dont understand why being called a whale should be anything but motivating. Weight is one of the few things you can change. If you dont like being seen that way you change it. Im not the only one thinking it when i see fat people.

If you are fat you CAN NOT hurt yourself by not eating. The only exception to that is if you have Diabetes and your body can't regulate blood sugar on its own. You can go literally weeks without eating, that's what the fat is for.
If you feel like shit eat some electrolytes (salt/magnesium/aluminum). Make sure you drink water. The fasting is not the problem.

Anonymous 6364

Fuck off with this ana-chan shit. There are better ways to lose than starving yourself.
Just because humans can survive weeks without eating doesn't mean that their organ systems don't get fucked from starvation. Fasting doesn't mean not eating entirely, religious fasts usually take place during the day and people eat in the evening similar to IF.

Your body breaks the fat down into glucose which your cells can turn in to ATP which they use for energy. If you have fat on your body your blood will deliver the glucose to 100% of your organs. No damage. Their is literally ZERO RISK from not eating as long as you are fat. Long fasts have already been documented by medical science.

Did you even read what you linked, that is one example of a long fast, akin to an anecdote since this type of fasting hasn't been replicated. It was also under supervision and heavily supplemented, which is different from saying "just don't eat, fat people can live off their body fat without any negative effects."
If the over-simplified fat -> glucose -> energy for life worked, why don't more people genuinely just starve themselves into shape? (Answer: they don't because that is a bio 101 view of the world)

Anonymous 6381


I'm someone who does 24-48 hour fasts for discipline, and my rule is if you feel like shit you should stop, whether it's physically or mentally. If you're out of breath climbing a flight of stairs, go eat something. If you start getting syncope or headaches, go eat something.

And whether or not you're doing calorie restrictions, make sure the food you get is nutrient dense to compensate for the calorie deficiency. There's plenty of delicious food out there that's high in nutrients and low in calories, like kale and broccoli.

IMO the best way to lose weight is slowly with exercise and a slight deficit. In my own experience, the more drastic your diet, the more likely you are to break it and revert back to your old ways.

First of all, "prehistoric" hunter-gatherer societies predominantly relied on gathering vegetables and fruits for their daily caloric intake. Meat was eaten when it was available. They did not fast unless there was no food available. I have no idea what you're talking about. Like cavemen are the ideal standard of health anyway? Wtf is this stupid ass statement.

>How about mentioning the other half of the problem. How much do you work out

Working out doesn't matter nearly as much as what you put in your mouth (if goal is weight loss). The average person does not work out enough to break a sweat regularly so suggesting 2000 calories a day for every woman is retarded.

>How about you stop repeating jews news. Do you really want to appeal to the most common "beauty standard"? I'd be scared if 90% of men found me attractive

LOL wtf? Did you really just ask me if I wanted to be considered universally attractive? Why would you be afraid of being attractive?

>I'm not supposed to give my opinion but pic related is why bmi is bullshit. Coach potato and /fit/fag can have same bmi but look totally different.

BMI is a general guideline for health. It doesnt matter that couch potato and fitfag look different at a 23 bmi, they're both in a healthy range. In a country where there is an overwhelming obesity issue the problem isn't fit people being misrepresented into the higher end of normal.

Im assuming you're a man from the last part of your post, keep your retarded opinions and comments to yourself

I hit an all-time low on my weight loss journey this past week but the past couple of days I went through some emotional trauma so I’ve been stuffing my face full of probably 2000-3000 calories each day. I turned to food since I’m trying to avoid depending on alcohol again but regardless I still feel horrible physically and mentally.

I hope tomorrow is better and I can get back on track. If I can’t manage to constrict then I at least hope I can manage to eat a healthy amount of food.

I'm sorry that happened to you. I don't know if this helps, but what helps me when I'm relying on food for emotional support is to not allow any junk food within the house. Even if I end up ordering takeout (which I rarely do because I'm cheap), it's better than eating 2 family sized chip bags and skittles because I'm upset.

I hope everything gets better soon.

>average woman needs about 1900-2100 for maintenance
Median American woman is 5'3" tall, that works out to ~1500kcal/day depending on activity level.

Absolutely agreed that fasting (and "dieting" in general) is retarded. What matters most with weightloss is changing your lifestyle (intake/activity) in a permanent, sustainable way.
