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?
This is probably better suited for the health and beauty board >>>/hb/
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.
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.
800 a day seems too low, I'd recommend 1200 instead so you don't crash and burn.
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?
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!
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?
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.
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
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.
What are some good weight loss communities? Preferably full of other girls that are also trying to go from an average weight to a low end HEALTHY BMI?
MFP forums have been helpful for me, and also the forum section of 3fatchicks.com
Places like Reddit and other imageboards besides this one are filled with ana-chans and fat shamers, stay out of there if you want advice without added bullying.
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. I just can't relate to fat people or anorexic people's weight loss journey and they seem to populate ALL the weight loss places I've ever seen. Looking for places where people try to lose up to 10kg max and discuss the struggles of the last few pounds without the anashit.
y-you can talk to me…although I’m trying to lose 25 lbs.
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
You must be delusional if you think that, anon.
I'm clinically overweight and all I do is maintain on 1700 calories per day, let alone 1900-2100. Jesus.
Anon's numbers are a little high for shorter girls, but they are right that <800 is the real problem.
>>6252> <800 is the real problem.
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.
Take your fatass opinions elsewhere, I bet you're against fasting as well.
>>6253>boomer logic>lost 40 lb on 500/day>acknowledges that 1600 is a normal caloric intake
>>6250>The average woman needs about 1900-2100 for maintenance
telling everyone they need 2000 calories a day is why everyone is fat
more like 1500-1600 a day for the average short girl, the extra 400 calories a day adds up quick. im 5'9 and i gain weight if I eat over 1750>>6253
fasting is so retarded, it's like anorexia-lite. The posts/memes on /r/fasting and proed spaces or whatever are almost indistinguishable. just eat like a normal fucking person how hard is that, whales
>just eat like a normal fucking person how hard is that
Not disagreeing with you but a lot of people want instant results instead of gradually losing weight on a 500k deficit.
>>6257>fasting is so retarded, it's like anorexia-lite
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.
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. >>6260>me>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.
I'm glad you turned it around! Establishing a decent diet was the best thing I've ever done for myself.
Currently 5'2" and 102-ish. I'm keeping my intake around 1000 (it's that high because my job is very demanding intellectually). Trying to lose down to 90 or at most 95.
>>6262>"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.
I'm doing keto again.
I got to a really bad spot (I'm 240 at 5'4).
So far it's working. I just get so tempted by my boyfriend when he cooks pasta for himself :(
also I study all day
oh wow this is a pathetic post
>bmi of 20.8>fat
oh ana-chan you silly goose, you know it's attractive to have SOME tits and ass right? There are legit studies that show 19-20 bmi is peak attractiveness to men. And it makes sense, that's the weight where you generally have a flat stomach but still tits and ass. No sane person thinks a 19-21 bmi is fat. Who are you trying to impress here?
you sound pissed btw lmao, calm down i wouldn't want to trigger a b/p episode
btw, since making that post >>6225
9 days ago I'm down to 143.0 lbs. I guess the maintenance break was all I needed. You don't have to starve yourself to lose.
i have not weighed myself since the holidays, yiiiikes. i'm sure i've gained ~10 pounds but i'm scared to check…ok, I'm gonna go do it…5 pounds gained. 149lbs at 5'1 lol gross.
>>6285>149lbs at 5'1
yikes indeed, what's your plan for weight loss?
Who here /landwhale/. I have hovered around 300 for the last few few years after a stint of antidepressants :(
jesus.. no offense but how can you even live with yourself at that point? would you consider food an addiction or something comforting?
i'm look into IF, literally the laziest plan. i don't exercise at all except for walking ~1 mile/day walking to/from work every day.
i feel to self-conscious to intentionally move my body, even when i'm all alone. it's stupid.
I never exercise and I've been able to lose quite a bit of weight. Diet is enough, but exercise is welcome.
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.
Eh when you have been fat literally your entire life you just kind of get used to it… Plus my ex bf liked me fat so I used that as an excuse for my shitty habits :/
thank you for the encouragement! i'm setting up my fasting periods for this week and we'll see how it goes.
I'm 5'6 and 165 pounds as of this morning. I've been trying to do the whole "new year, new me" meme by trying to cook more at home, getting more fruit and veg, and cut down on the alcohol.
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.
Starting today, 1000kcals max. I want to lose about 15kg.
are you ok? what would it be like to look into talking to a counselor or something?
ok, I've been doing it 3 days now and am down to 146 (from 149 on Sunday) is that weird? I have been doing really well with keeping to my 8-hour feeding window each day so far.
Doing this for a couple days makes me realize how much I was using food as part of relaxing – like munching, internet/tv just went together for me. it's nice to get clarity on how automatic this stuff was/is for me.
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.
Good luck to you all, anon-chans! I'm rooting for all of you!
Spoken like a true fatty.
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.
Also most men I’ve encountered seem to prefer girls who are around ~5lbs underweight, not that it even matters.
I have a study that shows bmis ~19 are most attractive and bmis deep into underweight are unattractive. what do you have? No one cares what some proana bitch, who thinks a 19 BMI is fat, thinks. Seek help.
Yeah, actual curves are attractive when you have a thin waist, pancake ass.
Are you lifting heavy weights?
How much muscle are you packing, skelly?
Hey, why are you so upset that people around you are comfy being average or even kind of chunky? Is it really worth being angry over the fact that people have different aesthetic tastes for themselves and others than you?
I don't hate skinny women. So I don't understand why you hate non-skinny women so much.
I don't agree with the ana shit but it seems like the other anon is also being a dick to fatties by calling us "whales", as seen here >>6257>just eat like a normal fucking person how hard is that, whales
She was obviously referring to me as well as some of the other people in here. I posted above that my BMI is over 25 and I lost weight by eating less than 600 calories and I deserved to be insulted for that? As if I don't already hate myself enough. I'm just so mentally damaged at this point that I admit I'm self harming. Calling me a whale isn't going to magically make my mental problems go away, just make them worse.
Adding - none of us would be here if we weren't already unhappy and trying to change, including the anon whose getting attacked for being average weight. Weight is a really sensitive subject and there are kinder ways to convince people not to harm themselves than dragging down their self esteem. I get this is an imageboard but seriously, that really hurt.
lel, yeah, I'd almost forgotten about her post there.
They both hate heavier women and
other skinny women. Not to come off as "greater-than-thou" but being so viciously competitive about weight and also hating people who don't even want to compete must be tiring.
I don't get why people go crazy about weight. How do you define thin and fat? Is 5'9" 150 lbs fat? Is 5'5" 100 lbs thin? Is there a perfect BMI range to say you're thin or fat?
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.
>>6325>>6327>>6328>>6329>muh muscle mass
Yeah fucking right. Have a tiny bit of self control and stop eating. normal bmi ranges are HUUGE, JUST fall within normal!!!
If you were in my line of work you would be disgusted w fat people. the conditions they put themselves in for a fucking mcdonalds burger (that they still eat) and having to watch the strain they put on the poor people who have to lift and care for them too. Even a little bit of visceral fat is so unhealthy for you. Just fucking stop eating so much retards. There are not enough excuses in the country for 70% of america to be overweight/obese.
>muh childhood ptsd>muh medication>muh condition
Unless you have some rare untreatable condition that makes you obese you have no excuse for why you arent at least at the higher side of normal.
Yeah no, i don't hate other skinny women. Im happy for them and respect them for having the self control to be in the minority. Only if they attack me obviously.
I used to be just like you when I was a teenager, skinnyfat and hated fat people, then karma bit me in the ass after I went off to college and I ended up gaining a fuck ton of weight. I realized that my hatred of fat people was based on my own deep fear of becoming one of them, not that fat people have done anything wrong to anyone but themselves.
I really hope you're a child, otherwise it's time to grow the hell up and get over your insecurities boo. I don't think you're fat, but you're equally as much of a cunt as any ana-chan.
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.
THIS IS THE TREND SO MANY COUNTRIES ARE FOLLOWING (even if you arent american) You need to grow up and face the terrifying reality. Im more disgusted by all this than anything. You dont get to see where it ends up.
Im sick of all your excuses, again there are NOT enough excuses for 70% of the pop to be like this.
And let me add i never care about this shit until i started studying/working and seeing actual fat people in action. I wish everyone could see it in real life.. it would horrify everyone to stop stuffing their mouths
Okay but here you are screeching like an autist at people in this thread who aren't even close to that level of obesity.
Perhaps you should find a new line of work if you're foaming at the mouth like this over your patients. Obviously you're not emotionally stable/mature enough to handle it.
Nobody here is supporting the rise in obesity or saying it's perfectly okay to be so fat you can't walk. We're in a weight loss thread you moron, everyone here is taking steps to become healthy. All we're saying is that you should stop being a turbo-cunt.
Nah you literally said that you didnt like fat people/werent ok with fat until you became fat yourself. youre part of the problem.
And stop engaging in conversation about the topic of fat people and asking questions and then immediately writing off my replies as "screeching". I literally would not have written any of this until you started replying with dumb immature shit about your insecurity in college and all the assumptions you've made about me. And that other anon started making excuses for obesity. I dont care about your insecurities that youve projected onto me.
And generally obese people just look overweight and can walk around just fine.
Who the fuck was "making excuses for obesity"? Are you retarded, autistic, or both?
Can you read? the anon saying that muscle mass significantly interferes with BMI results is the most retarded over-used excuse. Unless you're the fucking Rock, but I doubt that, fatass. You all are always so full of excuses.
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.
Some people find insults motivating, for most people not so much. You can motivate people without calling them names, you know.
My BMI rn is 23 and lowering week by week so technically I’m in the ~healthy range~ you’ve been talking about this whole time, despite continuously calling me a fatass, but go on as you wish.
Note that this is an anon board and that i have no idea how big/skinny you are. I called you that bc you repeatedly called me autistic and retarded (fair enough, imageboard arguments). If you are a BMI of 23, i would never call you a whale. You really made it sound like you were one.
Lost 5 lbs in 1.5 weeks with IF so far. Yesterday I last ate at 1pm and didn't eat again until 8am this morning. I felt shitty last night and felt sorta scared of fainting. I'm worried if I don't keep strictly to it I will go back to my bad old ways. I don't know if I'm being paranoid of if I'm going about this in a dumb way. I think I'm averaging ~900-1000 cals a day?
wow that's amazing progress, but i'm worried about you. how tall are you? you shouldn't feel dizzy/like fainting on IF, especially after a week in. 900-1000kcal is probably not enough for you.
How long do you think you can continue to eat 900-1000 a day?
I'm only 5'1". Starting weight was 149 and now I'm hovering around 144. My first week I did 14:10 fasting, but this week I shifted it to 16:8 just to see what it was like.
I don't have a long-term plan…this mostly felt like an impulsive experiment. I literally have never dieted before and don't exercise very much at all.
>>6360>I don't know if I'm being paranoid>>6361>i'm worried about you>>6362>5'1">Starting weight was 149
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.
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.
Honestly this whole thread has been a massive shitshow between self-harming fatties, ana-chans and the FPH anon. When I first clicked on it I was hoping for a good discussion with people giving helpful feedback and sharing tips but was sadly mistaken.
Even thinspo threads on 4chan of all places are more helpful and civil than this. What the hell happened?
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. https://pmj.bmj.com/content/postgradmedj/49/569/203.full.pdf
Every time I cheat on my diet I end up getting my period early. What do?
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)
they don't because the TV doesnt tell them to, plus they dont have the willpower to go more than a week without eating processed shit. Ask your doctor about a long term fast if you're a fatass they will agree.
I'm aware that this is probably a dumb as shit question, but why does it matter if the egg is hard-boiled, poached, or anything else?
Hard mean more egg. Poach less.
I asked because I wasn't sure and wanted to get some other opinions since I assume people in this thread are/have been active dieters. Thank you for the information. I'm trying to learn.
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.
This might explain why I don't like chocolate (except for the white one, but that's not even real chocolate.)>>6257
How about mentioning the other half of the problem. How much do you work out?>>6257>fasting is so retarded,
Tell that to cavemen who feast once every few days if they manage to hunt anything. Of course they ate small prey and vegetables on a daily basis but it wasn't their main source of calorie income.>>6260>Also who you calling whale, whale?>getting triggered>you’re the bitter fat pig.
Where do this hatred come from? Low self esteem? I'm sure you'll get better after losing your weight. Answering to hostility with hostility doesn't help anyone here.>>6277>here are legit studies that show 19-20 bmi is peak attractiveness to men.
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.>>6365>What the hell happened?
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.
>>6382>Tell that to cavemen who feast once every few days if they manage to hunt anything. Of course they ate small prey and vegetables on a daily basis but it wasn't their main source of calorie income.
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.
>>6250>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.
>lost eight pounds since January
Twelve more to go!
>stepping around the skinnies deciding whether not eating counts as anorexic behavior if you're fat
I keep breaking my diet. I can always stay motivated to work out, but I have a massive sweet tooth and tend to have INSANE cravings. I will binge on all the sweet food in my house and feel so guilty about it I'll take laxatives to purge. I try to keep sweet stuff out of the house, but I also get stressed out and use these foods to cope with the big sad around weekends/holidays. It's really discoraging to have to lose the same 5 pounds over and over. ):
>inb4 the "lol ur just a fat girl with no self control lose some weight you fat fuck"
Replace food as an emotional coping mechanism.
Question - what do you consider a “whale”? I read your posts about hating fatties who are too big to wipe their own ass, but what about people with say, a 25-27 BMI - which is fat enough to look and feel disgusting but not fat enough to require assistance, accommodations or plus-size clothing?
I’m sure most people on the internet would coil up in disgust at anyone whose BMI is over 25 but I’m curious about your take.
Not that anon, but I only consider people who are so large that they require others to make accommodations for them, as in needed a scooter to go grocery shopping or needing two seats on a plane, as "whales". So at least a 30+ BMI
However, if you're actually calling any of these people whales or fatties directly you're not a good person. You're entirely entitled to that opinion, but you're not being helpful to anyone. I hate nothing more than people who shit on fat people under the guise of "encouraging them to lose weight".
You're allowed to hate fatties but don't you dare take the moral high ground for it.
Please don't take laxatives, amon. ;_; That shit can fuck you up.
>>6422>I’m sure most people on the internet would coil up in disgust at anyone whose BMI is over 25
I'm not sure that's true, lots of sexy thicc girls online are 25-30 or nearing it, but in the right places.
I'm the anon you're quoting and only consider people "whale status" when it starts affecting the way they walk (waddle) or it starts wearing their body down (esp joints). I obviously don't care about the individual health of every fat person I don't know like >>6423
mentioned. I mean, I'm disgusted that so many people are obese and that they become absolute burdens to everyone else just because they want to eat food. Who wouldn't be? How can you respect that kind of person?
That being said, 25-30 bmi really isn't that noticeable. There's nothing wrong with having an overweight phase and correcting it. I've never been in that range personally, but I understand how someone could slip into it d/t stress, having kids, decreased exercise but same intake.
But there is a point where you reach pic related (the starting point of whalehood imo) and you think, i really need to change something about myself. And if you can't pull together the will power to correct it or prefer shoveling food into your mouth, it's really hard for me to respect that kind of person. My opinion of course. If that person doesn't care that other people lose respect for them b/c they prefer stuffing their face that's up to them of course. They're adults they can do whatever their oversized hearts want.
absolute bullshit. using stored fat requires using energy. that energy needs to come from somewhere. closing your mouth when you're fat is generally a good idea, but fasting for several days straight is just retarded.
just have several small meals during the day at a calorie deficit like a normal person jfc
My roomie/friend helped me get on her diet because I got sick of this shit.
I lost weight because I discovered (at least for my friend) her skinniness isn't a meme. She's 100lb at 5'2" because her diet is (for anyone who wants it) :
Breakfast: Skip or smoothie
Lunch: 1 cup of sugarless greek yogurt, fried rice, lots of veg and fruit with a portion of dairy. Any combination of.
Dinner: Greens (fresh or stir fried in olive oil), noodles, non-oily soups, rice, plain chicken, marinated beef (with the fat all cut out), high quality cheese. Any combination of.
Roomie has a good bill of health and my own health improved a lot eating what she ate though I admittedly portioned more, being taller. I also noticed her idea of a snack is literally 3 oreos or a glass of almond milk. She still eats fast food, which was the surprising thing for me, but only twice a month… compared to my in-progress habit of eating out twice a week. Oof.
The wild thing is the memes were right. The cravings for sugar and processed food legitimately go away after a harsh withdrawal. It makes me think if some cases of obesity should be treated as symptoms of addiction.
Sounds about right. Me:
Breakfast: Skip (or sometimes some of that sugarless Greek yogurt, same as her)
Lunch: 4oz roast chicken
Snacking: Low fat popcorn (rarely)
By dinnertime I've usually had 200-300 calories for the day so I'm pretty flexible.
This thread partially prompted me to start skipping breakfast and eating a bigger, more carb/oil-heavy lunch. I feel more satisfied and end up eating less calories. Then I have my protein at night with vegetables and some carbs.
I do some light exercise in the morning and have some caffeine, and I don't feel hungry until about 30-60 minutes before lunch.
I stopped eating most junk and exercising more and now I get sick more often, am still chonk, and have acne worse than when I was 15.
Around Valentine's I ate copious amounts of chocolate and LOST WEIGHT. idk what's up.
Slow metabolism. You need more spices and herbs. You think you're only losing weight from binging, but it was the diet that lost your weight. It just happened too slow to notice.
Second anon, and possibly. I like the blandest of the bland food.
Stacey eats pizza!
Hey, I'm the same weight/height as her! (In the process of losing 5-10 lbs though). My diet:
Breakfast >half-serving of Vector granola (the one with 20g protein in every serving) – about 145 kcal >handful of blueberries/blackberries with the granola (I don't count these calories, they're negligible)>sometimes, a tub of yogurt, either Greek or regular – about 100 kcal
Lunch>1 medium honeycrisp apple – 130 kcal
or>1 wrap w/ 100-kcal tortilla, 30kcal of dressing, 30kcal of deli meat, and 50kcal of cheese (also lettuce/tomato, but those calories I ignore) – 210 kcal
Dinner >quarter-filet of salmon + green beans, cherry tomatoes, and baby potatoes (w/ spices and olive oil drizzled, then baked in the oven) – approx. 350 kcal
Snacks>1 mini-bag of Orville Redenbacher popcorn (butter flavor) – 160 kcal
and/or>3 Dare's digestive cookies – 140 kcal
It's actually surprisingly filling. I can't recommend that granola enough, it's amazing. The only time I'll get hungry is right before dinner, which is great because it makes me feel even better when I do eat. I also try not to eat anything past 7 or 8 PM (I go to bed around midnight), or it affects my sleep and I wake up feeling shitty.
I'm 5'7 and 132, I feel like that's too heavy but only a bit too heavy so I'm not motivated enough to lose it. I dunno, would you guys consider than chubby?
>>6571>she's an inch taller than me and at my goal weight>she calls herself fat
hibbity hope, it's time to rope
I'm sorry, I know i'm not fat, i'd just rather be a bit slimmer, please don't do anything bad, I don't carry weight well or evenly and basically none of it is muscle
Lol. Absolutely not, but I can understand wanting to be a bit thinner. I'm the same height and used to be around the same weight a couple years ago before I gained a fuck ton of weight, and I remember thinking to myself that although I definitely wasn't fat that I was a bit curvier than I'd like to be (I had a small waist/flat stomach but was definitely a little thicc in the thighs and had decent sized boobs).
There's nothing wrong with wanting to be skinny instead of curvy but don't for a second believe you're fat, dear God.
Oh okay yeah this is a good answer. What kind of work do you do where you're constantly subjected to the morbidly obese? ER nurse or something?
I've been in ER and Med/Surg. I work on a medicine unit now. It's unfortunate but it's just full of patients who are finally seeing the consequences of their actions.
Decided to try out ECA stack to supplement my diet/exercise. My psychiatrist told me there's a very slight chance I might go bonkers so here's hoping I don't.
Anyone else try ECA with any luck?
Since I posted this I've gone from 48.8kg to 48.0kg. I don't always skip breakfast, though. Sometimes I'll have a ~300 calorie breakfast, but the calories eaten end up the same.
You can do it girl. I started at 162 at 5’1 and so far have lost 15 lbs in a month and half doing intermittent fasting at 1400 kcals and cardio.
I lost 12 lbs last month with IF. Works well for me because my schedule is pretty packed atm. I'm trying to get to a low weight before we start trying for a kid. My friend had gestational diabetes which is a bit of a nightmare, so avoiding that at all costs.
The thinnest kid I've ever known (I'm talking 5'11" 110 lbs skinny) told me that he never eats lunch or breakfast, only ate a snack after school around 3:30pm and then dinner a few hours later, for as long as he was old enough to feed himself.
Intermittent fasting will make you drop weight like crazy, I still lol at the idiots who argue that it'll make you gain weight because "starvation mode".
Breakfast is a meme anyways. At most two healthy, proportionate meals a day will put anyone on a fast track to losing weight. Every single skinny person I know (who /stayed/ skinny past their twenties) doesn't have breakfast.
>no interest in food, eat mainly for nutrition and to stop feeling hungry>hate vegetables and never count calories, too lazy to exercise>what I do eat is heavy in fat/oil and protein>only eat once or twice a day>drink a lot of calories (mainly from honey in tea or some form of milk or protein/nutrition shake from the store)>skinny enough that my ribs show (5'3 110 lbs)
Just become too lazy to eat. Every time I eat I have to wash the fucking dishes, fuck that. Half the time I just say the hell with it and go without. Being not-fat is the easiest thing in the world. I'd switch to a diet of protein shakes and fruit/veg juice if it was economically feasible because I am indeed that fucking lazy. Food is a pain in the ass.
Also I only go to the grocery store on foot, so I have to carry all my shit a mile home. Do that and you will never, ever get fat. Cars enable fatass habits like drinking soda and eating a bunch of snacks. A box of tea is less heavy than a flat of soda for 24 beverages. If you don't use a car it is physically impossible to buy enough food to get fat on.
What I ate yesterday: 4 oz steak that was on sale, a palm size portion of cheese cubes (palm, not fingers), a bowl of lazy man's chicken soup (chicken + water + green salsa, homemade) and tea with honey.>>6250
This post is bullshit. I only need around 1100-1200 calories a day for maintenance if I don't exercise. >>6658
I eat breakfast and lunch, or combine them into one meal. I don't usually eat dinner. It doesn't matter when you eat, only how much you eat. If you're fat just fucking eat less, this is the simplest thing in the world.
Yeah, and every fat person I know is all about their “complete breakfast” which they claim they need to be able to focus at work/school. Skinny people never talk about needing food for energy like fat people do.
Going back to the original post, skip breakfast often enough without cheating in between and you won’t feel hungry in the morning anymore. Your body eventually adapts to your eating schedule, which is why IF is such an easy plan to get into and stay on.
Breakfast is meant to break fasts!
If you're not fasting, then you can't breakfast!
I guess “breakfast” is at 2pm for me then.
It's recommended that you break your fast up to 8 hours after you've woken up. It doesn't have to be immediate. In fact, it shouldn't be.
All this post tells us is that you’re a complete fucking loser.>If you're fat just fucking eat less, this is the simplest thing in the world.
No shit, Sherlock.
>>6685>terrible diet>doesn't exercise>probably has poor hygiene due to laziness
I doubt it.
idk if this is worth a new thread but does anyone want to team up and lose weight together?
don't give the lurking males any ideas
I'd love to. I had a group of girls I met here earlier and it was really motivating.
I'd like to too. I started at 145, and I'm currently 132. I've been doing 1200 calories a day and running almost every day. I was maintaining my routine well, but when I started to get stressed I started binge eating again and went back up to 135, which was a little discouraging for a while but I'm back on track.
My goal is 123, but I'd be happy anywhere between 120-125.
I like your plan anon. I’m going to copy you because I’m hovering around 138-140 but I also want to be 120-125. I used to maintain that weight by doing what you’re doing plus cheat days (which is why I didn’t keep losing past that point) and it actually worked really well for a few years but then I got lazy. So I’m gonna get back to it and also do 1200/day plus running or biking or calisthenics every day.
Good luck to you! I’ve found couch to 5k really helpful. Also foods that are high in protein like lentils and tofu for remaining satiated. I think cheat days are okay every once in a while, but when they become every other day they’re detrimental (which is why I started gaining weight again).
National Geographic's research says it should be before noon.
Why is "eight hours after you wake up" past noon, anon? You should be in bed before the witching hour.
I don't know why I didn't do this for so long but if you have bad cravings for chocolate buy pistachio's (or ur closest favourite nut) and eat that instead. I like pistachios cause it kinda tastes like chocolate to me, also it takes awhile to eat them so even if you do eat heaps of them its over a longer period.
I've found when I'm craving chocolate, it's usually because I'm just really hungry and my body just wants calories. But if I really want chocolate, I just let myself have a small square.
I got a scale that measures stuff like body fat. Obviously not 100% accurate but still pretty neat.
I have the same thing. The Renpho scale.
Sadly mine is starting to get buggy, it gives different weights whenever you step on it. :S
Clean it out, probably a piece of something stuck in one of the feet causing variance.
Just got prescribed Topamax to balance out the weight gain side effect of an antipsychotic I’m on. I looked up some stories of people losing weight on it via reddit and people are saying they lost anywhere from 5-25 lbs effortlessly. 15-20 would be ideal for me.
By fair chance has anyone on c.c taken Topamax? The one thing I’m worried about is the fact that it potentially makes you dumb. Like really, really dumb - forgetting words, names, and being unable to speak well. I already have some cognitive issues that get in the way of my work.
Ooh I didn’t know this was the case, ty for the tip!
