Thank you so much :)
you are very welcome :)
Be careful with the pasta, though. Make sure you include those vegetables so your body can digest it properly.
@Jamie05rhs I agree I know though my ex girlfriend lost lot of weight at a steady pace with mac & cheese but she would also add veg and fruit in to her daily intake tooit wasn't until she became lazy (or rather lazier) that she stopped bothering
Thank you! :)

Thank you so much :) what can I eat as snacks during the day?
What sort of things do you eat now if I may ask, and your worst habits and worst things you eat? Another thing I recommend is to keep a scribbly log (or maybe just type something in a notepad app in your phone). All you have to do is before you eat or drink anything with calories (don't have to bother for water, e. g., since that's zero calories), scribble it down. It just takes two seconds and you don't have to be neat. The point of this is to turn subconscious snacking habits into conscious ones; you're not allowed to eat anything until you jot it down.
I’m ashamed of my eating habits and I’m trying to change but here it goes :(. I have a sweet tooth and I’m a big meat lover and because I’m a waitress at a restaurant I eat lunch and dinner there.. I usually have a burger fries and a soda and chicken nuggets for lunch and a ice cream or banana split. For dinner I usually eat eggs with pancakes and a side of sausage and bacon. For snacks it’s usually something sweet like an ice cream cone or brownies.. I’m certainly a mess and I’m trying to change it but it seems really hard for me to not eat what I really want..
The meat actually isn't so bad for weight loss if it's reasonably lean and not covered in fat/oil/grease/butter/etc (long-term health is another issue, but for weight loss not so bad). If it's mostly protein you actually burn about 20-30% of the calories you consume in protein just digesting it.The sweet tooth is a bit more of a challenge. The first challenge I'd set forth for you is to cut out the liquid calories like sodas and fruit juice and replace with zero-calorie drinks (water, sparkling water, black coffee, unsweetened tea). If you can't do it in one go, then a compromise is like you're allowed one drink with calories but the next one has to be a full glass of water. If you can at least manage that, then you might say two glasses of water for each of such drinks, and so on until you're drinking just zero-calorie drinks.For chocolate craving like brownies, see if you can acquire a taste for dark chocolate, like maybe 70% Cacao in the beginning. It's going to be bitter but it can hit the craving spot for chocolate. If you can get used to that, go darker like 80%, then eventually 90%. The darker it gets the more bitter, and not only is it healthier and lower in calories, but the bitterness usually stops you from eating so much of it.Just make the tiniest compromises, like look for a lower calorie version of something you like that you like almost as much -- like air-fried chicken to chicken fried in oil, then grilled/boiled. And work your way in small steps. Get in the habit of glancing at nutrition labels of things you eat (can look them up quickly on the internet at restaurants).Then you are no longer a "blind shopper". You can compromise nutritional value for taste, in the same way when you shop for groceries, you might favor something at half the price of something else that you like almost as much.
You can probably stand to lose some weight fairly quickly just eliminating the liquid calories like sodas. Those tend to be the worse since they can skyrocket your calorie intake without making you feel full at all (almost no satiety).
Thank you so much for all of the information :)!! I’m thinking of leaving my job because it’s really a lot of temptation to eat junk food but I can’t currently so I will have to learn to resist for now
And celebrate your progress here. If you can just make a tiny compromise like cutting down on sodas and sustaining that, you have made real, long-term progress no matter what the scale says. You have managed a real lifestyle change. Keep going and your body will start reflecting the changes over time. If you start learning about the nutritional values of foods you like and eat most often, that is also progress. That knowledge will stay with you for the rest of your life. Celebrate it.
By celebrate I mean just pat yourself on the back, not like binge on junk type of celebration! :-D
Lol😂😂😂 got it!!
I did get off point from the dietary angle which can be more important than all the exercise. Once you can find ways to crave healthier foods because you enjoy them that's when you'll actually feel yourself on the right path. Wheatgrass tastes good to me. I neeed a lush salad with my medium rare rib eye. You can't have ramen without it being mostly vegetable soup and at least 1 egg dropped in. And I highly recommend smoked fish as a meal replacement type snack. Zero soda, drink tea or lemon water. Zero alcohol. Zero super junk, just eat real meals that you can honestly enjoy which have real nutritional value. Give your body what it actually craves and it will start rejecting your choices for ultra-junk on whim. And the exercises and motivation will actually help each other too. We're putting points into every category and watching it grow through our efforts.and there are countless work out motivationals in the atmosphere to help you with The Pumphttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMbjuVC7CS8
I know I’m repeating myself, buuut, it’s important! Always make sure your healthy, Check in with your doctor, don’t bore yourself with foods, don’t starve because you may just binge and gain all that weight back (and it isn’t unhealthy) have some support! Like a support group, a friend, or even a therapist! And most of all, if you cannot get the weight of, it’s important to converse about strategic methods to help you! LikePills, or surgery!
And of course daily exercise! And I don’t mean run for three hours straight on the treadmill at marathon level, I mean in the beginning at least so yo
So you don’t strain anything!*
You have to walk at least!
Maybe for 30 mins to a hour, and the days that you are tired, maybe for 15-20 mins!
And always have a cheat day! I don’t mean go and buy the menu at McDonald’s, I mean if you want that slice of cheesecake go ahead! You deserve it for completing a week y’know?
Hope this helped!
Thank you! :) while I’m not in school I’m between 2 jobs so it’s stressing
Also figure out why you got to that size. What triggers you to eat? Are you an emotional eater, overeat, eat secretly etc? Perhaps go talk to a psychiatrist.
Just remember though, BMI isn't everything, like anyone can fall in the overweight (probably not obesity though ) character, but that doesn't necessarily make them unhealthy, because BMI doesn't take into consideration what your weight consists of, which is key. Best of luck with your journey and I hope it works out for you.
Thank you :) why is drinking zero calorie soft drinks bad?
Drink water. Don't drink any soda. Drink water. Period.
Because they tend to have a higher salt content/ have other variations of sugars and there have been studies which suggest that having low-calorie soft drinks can increase the likelihood of you becoming diabetic (if you aren't already).
@Thatsamazing Squash also counts as water intake -anything that's mainly water can be included.Namely, if you don't like water, drink squash.So yeah, coffee and water may also increase water intake, as can fruit juice...However, it should be noted that caffeine has a half-life of 12 hours so the coffee you drank at 12 noon will still be in your system at 12 Midnight.Milk, tea, coffee, soft drinks, fruit juice and squash will increase water levels. So yeah, they still classify as water even if they aren't pure water.
Just keep in mind that:1) alcohol gives you sugar and dehydrates you2) fruit juice should be kept as a maximum of 150ml a day (since the fructose can harm your liver) -though it still counts as one of your five a day,3) All drinks that aren't just water will increase your calorie intake.4) Caffeine has a half-life of 12 hours (so if you're affected by it then only consume it in the morning.5) Drink semi-skimmed or skimmed milk (due to their reduced fat content) if you're going to drink milk (unless you choose the plant based alternatives).
@HumansExist thank you so much :)
You should have made your own comment! @HumansExist
Meant to say "push yourself hard." In terms of exercise.
Thank you :)
As others have noted, consult a doctor/nutritionist if you have health problems or concerns. They will tell you these diets are unhealthy but probably follow that statement by telling you to eat high carb (sugar) fruits and vegetables. If they don't provide guidance and only criticism, get anorher opinion.
I prefer not going to the doctor all I do is get criticism there
Just remember your health can change rapidly. Blood tests and metrics matter. Don't go hypochondriac, but keep an eye on the factors.
How much does it cost for surgery?
I don't know, never did it. But I know it helps and exists 😄
I am starting to eat less :) I can’t exercise because my ankles really hurt when I move around too much
Yeah your mobility is limited right now, but as you get lighter through diet you can begin walking treadmill etc. In the meantime you can do in place weights. by the way, if you have money there are some really great resident fat farms in the US. Girl like you could pull 6 to 8 pounds a week at least. Your youthful metabolism really helps.
You think you're funny?
