The best way and the only way to lose weight is to create a calorie deficit, but you need to do this correctly so as not to harm your health.

Easy to say, difficult for a lot of people to execute. I'd add to this that you must learn how to read labels and ingredient lists on the foods you purchase. Learn which ingredients are detrimental to weight loss as well as your health.

Canned chicken sounds easy and should be low fat and high protein, right? Carrageenan is found in some canned/processed meats to prolong shelf-life. Carageenan is an inflammatory used in labs to perform tests on the effects of anti-inflammatory medicines. It also causes gastrointestinal inflammation, ulcers and even colon cancer in laboratory animals. It's also been linked to insulin resistance and glucose intolerance in mice. This is something that will completely stop weight loss and increase weight gain in a human.

The point being is operate at a caloric deficit while ensuring you're feeding your body with the right macro and micronutrients. The foods you buy should be as minimally processed as possible.

I haven't read this 10-page thread, but I'll give you my take on it. I lost 30 lbs in 3 months a few years ago, and have kept the weight off. Here's what worked for me.

First, like a good boxer, it's not about the one punch, it's about the combination. So stacking good's will absolutely make a great.

- 8 to 10 hour eating window in line with your circadian rhythm
- first thing you eat in a day can't have refined sugar in it
- drink only water (no funny water, just water)
- make sure you do some sort of exercise every single morning
- cut your portions by 1/3
- cut your bread by 2/3
- no overt sweets (cookies, candy, cake, ice cream, etc) until you start to drop weight, then limit them by 80%
- if you can do without soda you're 10,000% better off
- cut out as many preservatives as you can, as these hold on to fat in your cells
- do some sort of weight lifting every other day for at least a half hour, doesn't have to be heavy, you're only looking to change your muscle density

If you add all these good things up you'll have a great result for absolute certain. Depending on your particular genetics, where you are in your body curve (closer or farther away from optimal), and how hard you hit it will determine the speed of your loss.

Now for the weird part.

Your body gets into a rhythm. So if you're 200 lbs and 50 lbs overweight, and you eat 4 cupcakes, your body is affected differently than if you're 150 lbs and eat those same 4 cupcakes.

What I'm saying is, although it's absolutely true that you can't out-work a bad diet, you can certainly get away with more if you're not overweight, and you're working out regularly.

At 138 lbs I still enjoy ALL the things I used to enjoy at 170 lbs, I just enjoy them less, and I work out a lot more.

One other thing that really helped me was thinking about going back in time, since I'm 49 and feeling that crunch. I looked back at all the times I had written down my weight, put them all into an excel spreadsheet, and then thought back to when I was happy with my body. As I started to drop weight I saw it as going back in time, so I was always like "hey, if I can drop 5 more lbs I'll be the same weight I was in 2004!" That sort of thing really helped me a lot.

I ended up getting down to 129 lbs (same weight I was in 1986), and had pushed it a bit too far (41 lb loss), so then I started adding muscle.

At present I'm 138/139/140, medium muscular, eat pretty much whatever the hell I want, and feel fantastic.

For me, STOP shoveling food down my neck! If I dedicate my self to counting calories, I can loose close to 5lbs. a week for a few weeks; till the infamous plateau hits. Then it's a slow 1-2lbs. a week...

Fat Deposits: lower belly, lower back, love handles, face/chin



I really want to get lean, fit, healthy, athletic body and be around 170lbs with body fat of 20-23%.

An update

Weight: 181 lbs

Fat Deposits: lower abdominal (all around), chest, slightly double-chin

I have lost 14lbs.
But my body fat is at 28%. Lost 2%, is that even accurate??
I am using Omron HBF-306C for fat measurement.


I am aiming for 165lbs, with body fat around 20%

Stay away from soda, sugary drinks, sugar, alcoholic beverages, most sweets, limit starch intake, junk food/chips etc, and most importantly, gets off the couch and keep your body in motion. Stay active, even if your not a gym rat. Put down the cell phone, and get OUT.

Doesn't seem like it based on purely math. If you were 195 @ 30% BF then after loosing 14lbs of fat only you would be around 24.5% BF. Again just math, if you lost muscle in this process the numbers would be affected.

That said I go from 200 down to high 180s and back to 200 all the time and my scale still reads the same BF % although I know that number is way off haha.

Just go off mirror results. Rest isn't as important.

+1......Also ditch that Omron BF calculator unless you are just using it to track a trend. They aren't accurate and I can make one show a 5% difference just by hydration alone.

At the very least, get someone with some Body Fat Calipers to measure you if you want to see something more representative of where you are truly at.

If you still canít lose weight, then analyze the thyroid gland. Maybe she does not secrete enough hormones. It can be cause, good luck

Intermittent fasting worked for me as I had elevated blood sugar issues (now resolved after a month of intermittent fasting), the longer you can be at baseline, the more you get into your fat reserve for energy.

I lost 25lbs in 60 days (including the initial water weight) by fasting and not changing what I eat or workout with basic items.

Did a 16/8, then 18/6, now 20/4 for a schedule. First few days were terrible though, but once you cross the point of your body telling you it's hungry, you actually feel alert and sharp.

im a professional athlete, im about 6í2 205 now, i was 250 pounds...all i needed to do was burn more calories than i ate...hiit cardio will be your best bet to aid you with being in a deficit. lifting doesnt burn many calories, but if your losing weight in my eyes its essential to lift to keep all your nice muscle mass. Remember that like 75% of your body composition will be determined by your diet and caloric intake.
Hope this helps!

Calculate your daily BMR, eat 500 calories less than your calculated BMR daily, you will lose one pound per week.

Nothing else matters, not the size or timing of your meals, not a specific type of diet. Not even exercise matters, unless you want to speed up the weight loss.

The only reason diets and meal timing are important is for how they make you feel and for overall health, because let's face it, fruits and veggies are full of healthy vitamins and donuts are not. However, you can absolutely eat the equivalent number calories from donuts or from fruits and veggies and still lose the same weight over the same period of time, you'll just feel worse doing the former.

Uh sort of, exercise matters because the amount you do dictates what your bmr will be so if it changes daily so does your bmr.
