Count calories and pick a calorie goal. Something like 2200 or 2000 is probably ok to start with. You can look at a Basal Metabolic Rate or BMR calculator to get a good idea of the range. Find out how much calories you consume and then subtract a reasonable amount say maybe 500 calories per day. Having too much calories is much better than having too few, if you have to much it'll take longer and you can adjust down. If you have too few you'll be absolutely miserable, dreaming of food every night and eventually break, maybe wrongfully conclude that you can't lose weight.Eating things that are high in fiber and water content is good to increase satiation without increasing calories. Things like vegetables generally, pickles, celery are good, as are lean protein like hard boiled eggs, tuna, and greek yogurt. Try to avoid eating a lot of food that is fairly dry/little fiber, has a decent amount of fat, or sugars as these tend make you less full per calorie so you'll feel hungrier. I can easily eat 1000+ calories of buttered toast but would struggle to eat more than 3 boiled eggs ( which is about 300 calories). For the same reasons try not to drink your calories either, instead drink plenty of water as that help with appetite. Caffeine helps too, but it's a double edged sword, nothing is worse than being awake at night caffeinated and hungry. I also found it helpful to restrict when I ate food, essentially a version of IF. I'd eat between 2pm and 7pm. The first two weeks are the hardest. You'll figure out that hunger you experience is more about habit than anything else. After about two weeks you'll break most of those habits so you'll begin to feel less hungry/ have a smaller stomach. Exercise helps too, but this struggle is going to primarily be in the kitchen. It took me about a year to drop from 220 to 150. The most important thing is to stick with your calorie budget. If you go over one day don't reduce the next day or vice versa, just stick to the plan.
Start with something easy that you can maintain for a long time and then slowly build up the difficulty until you are walking long. I recommend walking at 2 miles an hour for 1 hour a day - then build up to 2 hours a day - and then 2.5 hours a day - then increase to 3 miles an hour for an hour a day - then 2 hours a day - then 2.5 hours a day - then 4 miles an hour for an hour a day - then 2 hours a day - then 2.5 hours a day etc...
Have an opinion?
Don't do anything crazy like starve yourself.I THINK it requires a lifestyle change.Find an activity that you enjoy that's active.Do the calorie counting thing that the other person in this thread mentioned.Your motives should be "selfish", meaning you should do it because it's what you want.Doing drastic things like starving yourself will eventually result in you gaining more weight.Your body will think it has to store more food. (That's what school told me)Bolemia and anorexia will damage your health.Don't feel like you need to be "attractive", feel like you need to be "healthy".Healthy is attractive.
Don't keep food that'd break your diet in your place, don't buy food that'd break it. It'd also be a good idea to not call it a "diet", it should be a permanent lifestyle change. And because if that you also shouldn't go cold turkey and get super strict on what you can and can't eat.
*because of that
Are you doing it alone? If so get help from a professional if you can. If you can't, the secret is not being too hard on yourself. You have to go for objectives you can stick to in the long run.If you say "from now on I'm only eating veggies" you'll last less than a week.The second thing is to keep track of what you're doing. Make a schedule and short term objectives.
First remember that muscle weighs more than fat, so I'd advise getting a body composition analysis done. After that set a goal in a workout program I would suggest something like insanity by beachbody. com and focus on having a high lean protein diet.
There are no tricks, you just have to stick with it even through the hard parts. It's all willpower and discipline.
Don’t diet too quickly.Start weight training.It should take you about a year or 2 the faster you lose it the quicker it comes back.Take a walk every day you don’t have to do anything that is intensive.
Talk to a personal trainer and/or dietitian. Pick something fun to do, something you’ll have no issues committing to. For food, listen to an expert who knows your health.
Choose a form of exercise that you enjoy, that will make it easier to stick to your goals.
Eat smaller healthy meals more often, keeps the metabolism up
How would you portion?
I think you can look up meals online for specific weight loss targets
Its all about how badly you want to
Dont you think you are beautiful the way you are
I think you are
Beautiful maybe. But very unhealthy.
No one is at their most beautiful when they are unhealthy and more prone to health problems. I'm sure she's a beautiful person but if she wants to improve herself and be at her best there's no point telling someone they are beautiful the way they are.
