Such as what?(And please don't get me the "Calories in, Calories Out" bullsh*t of starving yourself thin. That doesn't work in reality because of homeostasis; your body will adjust to it quickly and increase its Starvation Mode criteria.)
I wouldn't suggest staving yourself that'd be unethical and it doesn't work. And there are issues that can arise with intermittent fasting such as bulimia, gaining weight and it can lead to you overgorging yourself and binge eating due to cravings and hunger.There is also problems with it such as malnutrition, dehydration, problems sleeping, fatigue and low energy, headaches and light headedness, digestive issuesNo I was merely going to say cutting out bad foods, adopting healthy eating practices and working out proper and consistently. That will do more good for your body in the long run and is heathier. As a former PT that would be my advise.
If you still choose to do it though do be careful.
Well, at least we're in agreement that "Calories in, Calories Out" starvation is complete and utter bullsh*t. I already only eat 800-1000 calories a day. I only eat one meal a day and I'm almost literally never hungry. I get hungry maybe once a month or something, but I only eat that one meal a day because I have to remind myself to. That "humans are supposed to eat food." So based on these people giving me that sh*tty advice, I'd already be at a 2000 calorie deficit daily and wouldn't be slowly gaining weight for unknown reasons.Before stricter COVID restrictions here, I was boxing every Monday night and doing elliptical cardio Tuesdays through Fridays, because I get off work at 9pm and the normally 24-hour gym was previously closing at 10, but now closes at 8 cause of COVID, so I can't even do that anymore.I asked about Intermittent Fasting because it feels like I've also technically been doing that the entire time too, only eating one meal a day, usually at 10:30 or 11pm after the gym stuff, or coming home straight from work. That meal is usually a burger, or chicken sandwich, or piece of chicken with rice, or something. I used to eat healthier, but I'm no longer in the mood and it seems pointless now. If I'm going to be fat no matter what, I might as well somewhat like what I eat instead of living off raw kale and broccoli for the rest of my life.So I just don't know WHAT will work, anymore.
Yeah I mean anyone knowledgeable or with schooling in that area knows that.As for eating heathy it's kind of a myth that you have to only eat stuff like kale or steamed broccoli to be healthy. If you want I can suggest foods that are fine for you to eat or even some recipe books with a lot of really delicious food in it that's still healthy.But I would recommend cutting out things like soda, soda is a major contributor to weight for a lot of overweight folks.
I don't really drink soda unless it comes free with a meal. I mostly drink orange juice or mandarin juice, or water. I loved fruit punch back home, but it isn't a thing in Korea. So I drink water daily, and OJ or MJ at home.I suck at cooking, so all my meals are simple ones, like chicken and rice, or a sandwich. I like meat the most, as well as dairy. I try to cut out carbs as much as I can and only eat a burger bun, pizza crust, or bread if it's part of a sandwich. Besides that, I try to avoid all carbs. But yeah, I'd appreciate some foods that can be eaten that aren't just kale and spinach. Thanks.
Well I was just sing Soda as an example of something you'd want to cut out or limit yourself on.Carbs are more or less fine so long as they are healthy carbs, things like rice would fall under that category. Whole multi-grain bread is also fine.Foods chicken obviously or other lean meats, tuna, salmon, peanut butter is good fruits, specifically apples are great for you but fruits in general are good. Spinach, butternut squash, eggs are fine as well though to make it heathier though replace butter with olive oil or something similar.Things like that, I would recommend buying the book The Shredded Chef by Michael Matthews it's a great book with like over a 100 recipes that are all healthy and quite delicious and are separated into two categories fat loss and muscle building recipes, there are even desert reprices in it you can eat without worrying.I used to use Shredded Chef all the time as a PT, great book for someone who needs healthy recipes.
