I absolutely hate my body. I think I look disgusting. I have no waist, no hips and no boobs. I'm usually around a size 12 and im only 5'7". I go to the gym regularly and I'm still so big. I also don't eat a lot, maybe 2 meals max and I dont like to snack. I like my face but my body just makes me feel so unattractive. What do you think?

First off, no, don't feel bad! You're definitely not anywhere near the realm of disgusting, haha
I read one of the other replies from Other_Tommy_Wiseau, and like he said, there's a difference between going through the motions and working out. I have asthma too, so I understand the challenges that presents. The good news is, if you're trying to trim down, the cardio you want to be doing actually isn't that difficult. The most important question: where is your heart rate at? With cardio, it's all in the heart rate. If you're going all out, you're sweating, you're strengthening your heart and lungs... but you're not burning fat. That happens at a lower heart rate. "220 - your age" is the standard formula to determine your max heart rate, and then you want to be operating at about 60-70% of that number, no more and no less. So find that window and stay in it. I prefer to use the stationary bike, personally. You're just sitting there, so you can keep your hands in the sensors and monitor your heart rate throughout. I usually set it to the "Hills" workout, put a high resistance on to make my heart rate climb quickly, and then lower it as needed to stay in my fat burning window. Bonus points if you can do this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, you burn 3x times the fat! I have a job in the AM, so I can only do that on weekends, but with just two 45 minute weekend cardio sessions and a couple more at night at the "normal" fat burn rate, you'll see drastic results, provided you're eating healthy, which is just as important as the cardio. Get real familiar with skinless chicken breast (you can still season it), quinoa, brown rice, sweet potatoes, and green vegetables like broccoli, asparagus, green beans, etc. Eliminate as much sugar and white carbs from your diet, make sure your grains are whole grains. And you'll actually want to increase the frequency of meals. The less you eat, the more your body will store fat. If you eat something nutritious every few hours, your metabolism will be rolling in high gear👍 And always eat breakfast! (After your morning cardio) That sets up your metabolism for the rest of the day. And beware of what you drink! So many people eat relatively ok, but they drink soda, or even fruit juice, and both are loaded with sugar. Drink water, or unsweetened tea or coffee. You can live your life and get away with some stuff here and there, but the idea is to be consistent, not necessarily perfect.
Hope this helps!👍0

You've put your body into starvation mode by how much you exercise and how little you eat.
So your body is retaining fat as long as possible.0
