How do you all make sure you stay fit and healthy during these times?

I'm a fatty who's trying to lose weight to fit comfortably into brand and I'm currently intermittent fasting on a keto diet, but motivation is killing me.

So, what do you all do?
>>
>>10498488
Using some burando bux to get a decent cross-trainer and doing most of the usually vacant hobbies or activities on it.
>>
>>10498488

If you can read Japanese and want a cute dieting app (for some reason the app being cute really motivated me to use it more as it fit into my lifestyle) I reccomend this one for android called "mogu tan dieting app" or something. It's got an adorable teddy bear scale as the icon and has drag and drop little icons for meals and ingredients. It's got some Japanese and western foods preloaded but also you can add your own calorie counts.

I loved using it in Japan and the predetermined calorie counts were pretty accurate for me there. My language teacher even used the same app for dieting!
>>
>>10498488
A few things that help me in the mindset department:
Food should make me feel good for longer than the moments it is in my mouth.
What is the nutritional value of what I am eating? (Helps me see the healthy foods in a more positive way).
Group fitness classes of a long-term nature. I do martial arts, and have since I was young. Because training is a long-term commitment, a better community gets built, rather than some random spin class that has different people each week. Martial arts was also really good for my confidence, which helped me into a place of valuing myself more authentically.
>>
I’m using Noom right now. I’ve used plenty of calorie tracking apps before, but knowing I have a fitness coach who’s going to actually look at my food log and call e out on it makes me more motivated to stick to my diet. Also they gave a ton of lessons and tools to use to look at food and dieting and nutrition in a more positive, balanced way. Like anon above said, focusing on all the awesome nutrients you’re giving your body instead of thinking of all the junk you want but can’t have, things like that. It’s $150 for a 5 month plan but it’s felt worth it to me

Another fattychan thread
>>
I'm a former fattychan and I found that the best thing for me was to keep things simple.

>count calories
I just used a txt file on my computer. Nothing fancy. I tried various apps but they all complicated the process, especially as I cook most meals at home.

> reasonable goals
My goal was 1200cal for ideal weightloss, but I really just tried to stay under 1500 most days, and if I sometimes went over that was fine too. The point is just to be mindful and not eat 30000 cals in a day.

>incorporating activities
I started walking. First half hour/day, then 1hr, then later 2 hrs when I had time. Not speed walking, just staying active. I also made a point to do more things like going to zoos, museums, hanging out at the mall, and stuff like that rather than just sitting around the house all the time.

>don't worry about what you eat
I tried kwto and IF and both left me miserable. I found it better to just make healthier choices when I wanted to rather than lock myself into some restricted eating style. It was more sustainable and helped me develop goid eating habits from the start vs losing weight and then later trying to learn to eat properly.
>>
>>10498488
>How do you all make sure you stay fit and healthy during these times?
I don't do anything different. I eat healthy homemade food everyday and I also take care of my mental health through self reflection. Mens sana in corpore sano
>>
just stretch & go jogging for like 5 minutes a day, and then increase that to like 30 minutes a day over time

if you are cisfemale you really shouldn't have any problems looking good as long as you are into physical stuff like sports
>>

I want to make my interior more aesthetic, but I have a really hard time to convice myself that it's not just wasted money because nobody but me will see it.
>>
>>10498595
If you feel it's a waste of money to just buy cute crap for your private space, you can work towards making it more functional and aesthetic at the same time. I've done a bunch of minor diy projects and upgrades this year to make my bedroom+office look better.

>lined the drawers of one of my wardrobes with soft plush fabric in pastels, to safely store purses and accessories
>replaced my curtains with hand-sewn heavily insulated black-out curtains, in pale pink
>painted a bunch of furniture in mint and white, makes the room look much brighter
>painted and arranged some of my totes and organizational stuff, looks better and easier to see what I'm looking for
>spruced up my desk area w/ a new mousepad, shelves, etc.
>changed out my lighting to stuff that looks cute but has more uses and settings than the old lights
>>
>>10498595
I don't think it'd be a waste since you will be spending most of your time there. I decorated my office with flowers, curtains, decals fake plants and I feel better more than before since I have a nice room to work in. Looking to get more items but I need more blouses, shoes and OTKs.

Does anyone here meal prep? What are some of your go-to recipes?
>>
>>10498666
Eggs
>>
>>10498528
Are you really surprised? cgl is full of fat people, kek.
>>
>>10498671
evidence?
>>
>>10498666

I meal prep parts of breakfast most of the time. I chop up and freeze or refrigerate fresh bell peppers, onions, and low fat turkey bacon to toss into morning omelettes for my partner and I. It's a pretty high calorie breakfast (like 400, which is much more than smoothies or oatmeal I'd eat at home when I'm not with my bf, but not the worst to stay between 1200-1500 daily). Makes it much easier to chop things up ahead of time, and faster. Using mini sandwich bags and putting just enough frozen fruit and veggies for one smoothie is also something I tend to do for breakfast and lunch, since it's an easy filling low calorie meal.

I hate eating food that's been in the fridge too long and am picky about what I can microwave so meal prepping that involces fully cooking food and storing for later rarely appeals to me.
>>
>>10498677
Self-posts, census and tons of posters admitting they're fat and can't fit into their clothes in basically every post

>>10498687
So what you're saying is that everyone on /cgl/ in every thread, every lurker, has posted that they are fat.
>>
>>10498679
How is 400 calories a high calorie breakfast? Breakfast isn’t snack time you should eat more than 100-200 calories at it.

chillax chubby-chan, it's pretty clear that there is a subpopulation of people who can't fit burando here but that anon wasn't saying it was the entire board population

>>10498666
i wash and cut up veggies when i buy them to make cooking after work less time intensive and pre-portion large purchases of meat into ziplocks for freezing for two people. it can be really nice to make a big bowl of salad or a pot of chili/soup at the beginning of the week to have available, but my storage situation is such that i can't truly do long term meal prep on top of the idea not really appealing to me.

>>10498700
nayrt but it just depends on how you break up your calories, my breakfasts typically are snack-sized ~150ish cal "meals" that are almost exclusively to prevent vitamins and coffee on an empty stomach nausea.
>>
>>10498718
>"In basically every post"
The anon was clearly implying that a vast majority of the board is fat or chubby which is a stupid conclusion since there are even more posts that talk about how easy they can fit into brand.
>>
>>10498666
I oven roast big batches of potatoes or pumpkin or turnips or whatever root vegetables I’m using as my carbs that week. That’s the thing that takes the longest to cook at dinner and if I’m tired after work and I don’t want to wait too long to eat I’ll be more tempted to get takeout. With the potatoes already done I can cook up vegetables and meat in about 15 minutes and that’s a solid dinner.

I also find just pre-chopping veggies and keeping them in a bag in the fridge encourages me took cook dinner as well. The only other things I batch cook are meatballs or stock. Whenever I’m making meatballs I just make a ton and freeze them. For the stock I slowly save up chicken bones and vegetable ends in a bag in the freezer and then make a gigantic batch and freeze it in a bunch of little containers that I can use to add flavor to rice or make a quick soup or simmer veggies in, just whatever. It’s a much better way to add nutrients and flavor to dishes instead of high calorie things like cheese or sugary sauces/condiments.

How many calories do y'all eat to maintain? I try to eat 1400-1600 a day, workout 7-8 hours a week, and walk for an hour every day to maintain ~108ish lbs. I wish my legs were smaller but I really don't know how I could manage cutting any more calories without collapsing. Sometimes I binge a bit and my calories go close to 2100, though.
>>
>>10498488
>So, what do you all do?

I take wellbutrin and sit on my ass and eat like shit and do a handful of sit-ups or squats when I remember. I guess I don't really sit on my ass ALL day, I do clean and pace a bit. But I'm mostly sedentary.

But yeah idk I can eat what I want and maintain a <18 BMI with a body fat % equal to that of most athletes. Oddly, wellbutrin increased my appetite, but I still lost a couple pounds.
>>
The three best things I have done/witnessed:

Don't eat meat.
Stay away from marijuana.
Avoid packaged foods as much as possible and try to mainly cook meals with fresh produce instead. (Helps if you make extra you can have for later meals.)

I mostly eat a vegetarian diet with a little fish and have been ~115-120lbs at 5'6" for the past 15 years. Fit AP and baby like a dream except high waist cuts because I'm a bit tall. Skin/nails/hair are great too, but I also take supplements if my diet is a bit lacking.

Eggs, tofu, beans, and lentils are my best friend, along with hardy vegetables with lots of fiber. I do minimal working out (mostly light cardio and exercises that use my own body weight to build muscle) so I'm not in the best shape and I mainly rely on my diet to maintain my weight.

Bonus: my diet makes me learn how to cook lots of creative and tasty meals that I find my friends and relatives love, and more importantly: it's good for the environment.
>>
>>10498749
How tall are you? 108 lbs is fairly useless information without knowing your height. If you're like 4'11 that's on the bigger side of average but if you're 5'5 you're underweight
>>
>>10498751
Wellbutrin was hell for me, I've been off of it for nearly two years and I still don't have my complete memories or brain function back. I look back on pictures and can't remember what it was like experiencing them.

The appetite suppressing and energy were great though, I miss that.

It's been an actual life changer for me. I went from having intrusive and consuming suicidal thoughts every single day, to basically 0 suicidal thoughts (sometimes when my BPD gets triggered my mind wanders into that territory, but it's rare and definitely not daily or even monthly, and it's never a lasting feeling anymore). My friends and family were like damn, it's so good to have YOU back.

Sorry it was awful for you. It's nuts how different everyone's brain juices are.

Your BMI is underweight at 16.9 so you definitely have an eating disorder, you're undereating and over-exercising to purposefully maintain and UW BMI. Not healthy physically nor mentally and most embarrassing behavior in general. Take it to an ED support group.
>>
>>10498749
That's amazing anon, I'm truly happy it works for you! It warms my heart to hear a successful story like that.
>>
>>10498763
being slightly under or overweight isn't a big deal, some people are just built like that. assuming anon isn't lying about their calorie intake, they're doing ok, although i do agree they're overexercising a bit. 7-8 hours a week is already great anon, you should just let your body rest in between exercise days
>>
>>10498767
I never said being slightly under or overweight is bad. I'm naturally slightly underweight, but I eat 2000+ calories daily and do minimal exercise. I also don't worry about my legs not being small enough, and I don't say things like "if I restrict any more I will collpase"

I'm saying anon has an eating disorder. Her thoughts are not healthy and neither are her behaviors. Especially since anon is already UW, already exercising all the time, and thinking 2100 calories is a binge. And they think their legs aren't small enough, despite being an UW BMI.

I'm a recovered ana-chan (I was hospitalized at a BMI of 13). I know disordered sentiments when I see them.

Don't cut any more calories. You're doing great and are most likely being to harsh on your body. We all have insecurities but the focus should be on health not just size. I don't know your routine but you can always try changing your workout.

>>10498831
Yes! I try to wear something darker without any lace on the hem because most of my dogs jump up and could catch in the lace and where I walk is muddy. Thick tights aswell and some dark or tan granny boots. I found some cute pink hiking boots but they are nubuck and get destroyed, same as white boots or wearing a light coloured coat its not worth the hassle to clean spots off it. Then I walk them in local forests as I live rural so its either that or at the side of the road and I don't find it peaceful. If you live somewhere cleaner and keep to paths you could probably wear paler colours without fear.
>>
>>10498749
Thanks for posting this anon. I have to do a lot to keep my weight off, too and I am meant to maintain at 1,600 but if I didn't exercise with that I would go up in weight. I wonder if I am being extreme in terms of exercise as almost everyone I know seems to be able to eat what they want and do maybe 4 sessions at the gym a week if they bother at all, whereas I need to exercise twice a day and count cals to keep it down. And I am a looot heavier than you, too. I hope you can keep your routine up.

If you are interested, try small substitutions at first!

If you get tacos or burgers, get bean/veggie instead of meat. Or you could do 1 day of the week completely meatless. I used to eat meat frequently while growing up and I slowly transitioned it out of my diet, you don't have to do it over night!

The health benefits are really amazing and now after so many years, eating meat free is second nature to the point where I don't have to even think about it anymore. It gets easier if you stick with it and learn new recipes (which is great motivation to stay away from fast food and packaged foods too, thus keeping you thin.)

Also I have to say, Impossible Meat is amazing if you still want the flavor of meat. I was shocked when I tried it.

You can do it anon, I believe in you!
>>
>>10498848
Other anon does not have "heavy legs" her BMI is underweight and she has an eating disorder and body dysmorphia. Nobody has "heavy legs" at an underweight BMI.
>>
>>10499030

Depending on where they hold their fat maybe. If they're very pear shaped they could have bigger legs easily despite overall being small sized. Some Japanese girls have very thick legs for example. Or very muscular in the leg area due to exercise but not enough to be bulky and have a ton of weight.

>>10499208

I have just recently been diagnosed with ADHD but haven't gotten meds yet and my bf and a friend of mine rexxomend Vyvanse (may be spelling it wrong) over Adderall because it's a delayed release and can be low dose. Apparently some studies had also been done to harness the side effect of the suppressed appetite and give mid tier doses to obese people and it really helped them.

>>10499654
Almost none. I was already thin when I went on it and got grossly thin. My appetite was nonexistent and I was only sleeping for maybe 5-7 hours, every 24-36 hours.

Eventually it just started giving me intense anxiety attacks that would last for hours, so I stopped taking it.
>>
>>10499654
Only some adults appetites are affected. My psychiatrist said the older the person the less likely their appetite will decrease.
>>
>>10499664

It probably also varies depending on the drug. Adderall from everyone I've spoken to makes people feel like shit and makes you look like a methhead because it's basically a little better than meth. Vyvanse is an extended release or something where your body has to process the lysine first and has fewer or less intense negative side effects or at least is supposed to.

there is no advantage whatsoever to drinking distilled water unless making sure your drink tastes like shit is your priority, and drinking it exclusively will eventually make you dead

>>10499654
i'm 28 and have been taking concerta (it's an extended release formulation) for about three years. eating breakfast before you take it in the morning anecdotally helps me get around its noticeable appetite suppresant effect/smooths out any jittery feelings while still doing its job. it definitely cuts down my urge to snack or grab something sweet when i stop by the store. for people who already tend to eat throughout the day for most of their calories, it might do more to cause weight loss than it does for someone who prepares one or two full meals in a day and eats them at regular times. that said, don't be afraid to ask your doctor to try something else if it's messing up part of your life! i believe there are non-stimulant meds available, and some people report no appetite change at all anyway.

Actually there are plenty of toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Seems like you want to act like that's not true. Also you should be eating your minerals that folks say should be in your water.

>>10499755

Distilled water doesn't just not give you minerals, it straight up tends to absorb them out of your body, including what you would get from food. On top of that, it doesn't replenish any minerals or electrolytes you lose from sweating if you are exercising a lot.
>>
>>10499778
source?
>>
>>10499783

It's the first thing to come up when you Google it. I forgot the scientific reason behind it and don't know how extreme the issue is/how much you'd have to drink for it to be a health concern, but distilled water is labeled separate from drinking for a reason.

And of course water with no minerals or electrolytes (distilled water is I'm pretty sure basically pure h20) isn't going to replenish either should you lose them while sweating. So you could have issues that people typically get when sweating a lot and drinking too much water rather than an electrolyte solution but presumably even worse.
>>
>>10498488
Limit your caloric intake to around 20,000 a week unless if you're an average height. Purchase your food weekly, and buy 50% protein, 30% carbs, and 20% fats. You can eat whatever you want within those boundaries.

If you don't have access to a gym or weights, go for jogs around the park. Cardio is the best form of exercise. Ride your bike anywhere and everywhere it's reasonable to do so, and as long as it isn't thundering.

If you want to get a tight stomach and possibly abs try doing pushups, planks, crunches, and burpees.

That's it, that's the secret. Not really much of a secret, but yeah. You just gotta stay on top of it. A diet only works so long as you're on it, and you only stay fit so long as you keep exercising, unless you have the metabolic rate of fucking Wolverine like I do. But then that presents the opposite problem, being too much of a twig to do anything. I'd prefer starting out overweight desu.

give me a source. the first two results that comes up for me say that it doesnt absorb minerals out of your body it just lacks the minerals undistilled water has.

i didn't realize the concerta was making me depressed and suppressing my appetite when i started taking it. I never had an adhd coach or anything to guide me through it so i thought i needed to increase the dosage
eventually i made my way to max dosage (54mg) and during a stressful time it got so bad i started to gag just on water. eating became so difficult. it gave me anxiety on top of the depression. i was medically underweight the whole time on it because i thought i had to take it everyday when it was actually as needed. I was 90 pounds and managed to get to 100 by the end of highschool partially because of the muscle weight from group fitness.
ymmv, but don't go to 54mg or even 36 if you can avoid it, and just take your symptoms seriously
>>
(btw I'm fine now, I'm a normal weight for my height and i actually enjoy eating again which makes life actually worth it; am hella out of shape though bc no more group fitness )

I started working out again recently, feels bad when things don’t fit like they used to.

I’m 5’5 and my weight has been fluctuating between 128-133. I just wanna lose like 10 pounds and fit my brand comfortably.

I usually do cardio for 20-30 minutes and then another 30 minutes of whatever I feel like that day (squats, push-ups, etc.)

Is there a way to burn belly fat without doing ab exercises? That’s my problem area, but my doctor has told me to avoid doing an exercises because I have acute IBS and it triggers gnarly nausea and the runs (already tried anyway lol). I know eating less and not eating sweets helps too but was just wondering

It does not suck out your minerals--I think this misunderstanding comes from the fact that distilled water would be a lot more corrosive in an environment like a pipe. It doesn't replenish your electrolytes and is a bit less efficient for your kidneys. This could be an issue if you're sweating a lot or you're sick and losing minerals rapidly. Give some poor dehydrated bastard with diarrhea some distilled water and they might die. It can cause water retention due to the whole No Electrolytes thing, and it can also increase the osmotic pressure in your cells enough to make them pop like sad overfilled balloons, but I think you'd have to drink a lot at once to cause this. It isn't super risky or deadly, but it's also pointless to not just add electrolytes/minerals to it to offset the effects of being pure water.

>>10499755
The only people who benefit from convincing people that regular drinking water is dangerously contaminated with mysterious "toxins" are the door to door shills that sell you their dumb fucking kits. Seems like you want to act like that's not true. If my tap water had significant heavy metal contamination I'd surely be symptomatic by now, and even if I knew for sure it did, I still wouldn't have a good reason to drink distilled water over normal water with minerals but no heavy metals. The reason why electrolytes in water are important is not to make sure you aren't deficient (though that is good), but to prevent electrolyte imbalances.

Look up the contaminants in tap water. Many of them are carcinogens. meaning they cause cancer. I'm not denying your logic, I just think it's foolish to trust municipal tap water as safe and healthy. You should go the extra step and purify it. And if you're so concerned, remineralize your water

>>10500340
i'm not american, but you probably are. they're not known for being healthy, but they are known for being anti-intellectual spazzes with no capacity for critical thinking. do you eat rice? do you breathe air? congratulations, you're exposed to arsenic. these naturally occurring substances are constants in our environment, and unless you are drinking from an actively contaminated water source (you're probably not!), drinking distilled water is a futile at best, actively harmful at worst attempt at protecting yourself from the world. there are reasonable steps to take in order to avoid harmful substances, but distilled water seems to be the method of choice for woo-infused stoners and scam victims who think they're fucking redpilled after being tricked into installing some overpriced and energy inefficient machine under their sink.

i'm not anti water filtering and have lived in areas with extremely hard tap water that had to be filtered, but these moronic methods that 100% strip water of everything are expensive and slow for literally no benefit- and as far as the original point of it being suggested in the context of weight loss, it still has NO benefit and increases water retention. if you really give a shit about dangerous substances, try addressing your local farms and factories. your primary exposure to carcinogens is via industrial pollution and the literal sun. this is the logical equivalent of those who forgo vaccines due to their .02mg formaldehyde content when your body manufactures over 50,000mg a day.

I got on adhd meds and I make sure that I eat enough by counting calories so that I eat enough. Eating before taking meds helps and eating at night after the effect wears off also makes it easier. It's more of a mental block and it just takes effort and forcing myself to eat. It is easy to forget to eat when taking adhd meds because you don't feel hungry.

>>10499661
Did they start you from the lowest dose and work you up as needed? You shouldn't be having those kinds of effects unless if you're taking a high dose. I was put on vyvanse at too high of a dose and it did similar things to me. I switched to adderall on a lower dose and it doesn't make me feel anxious or prevent me from sleeping.

That doesn't work with globalism and open borders politics and an economic system that is relying on eternal growth. If the population shrinks, your government will just import more third world people to make up for it.

Your personal abstinence from animal products and you not reproducing won't help the planet either in the long run.

to be fair, most people do mean "save the planet" in the sense of preserving a viable home for future generations of human beings. whatever dumb shit we do to kill ourselves off will probably result in us being outlived by other things and the earth eventually making some kind of ecological recovery.

convincing a tiny minority of already privileged people that all they have to do is not fuck to save the earth will probably not save the earth. less people might do less damage, but that is in no way a solution, especially since it can't reasonably be enacted on a planetwide basis. inaction seems like a stupid way to address several gigantic actions.

I dont snack.
Most meals are just survival....rice and poached fish, salad, baked chicken breast ans weet potato.
I do not limit olive oil or butter.
I quit drinking alcohol except for a shot or two of gin w diet ginger ale on weekends
I do not eat fried foods anymore.
I do eat alot of rapini, and peppers.
I dont associated foods with a time of day anymore...like breakfast can be a grilled chicken breast and half a sweet potato.
Once a week I go off and have some pizza or a steak.
For excercise I walk 3 miles a day , pretty fast.

I have lost about 40 lbs in 3 mos.

Once you have eaten fairly well for awhile...eating things like fried foods are a challenge.

So I'm on keto right now and actually having success, whereas last time I was literally crying in Walmart looking at the 48-count box of Poptarts. Turns out the big difference is I started eating probiotic foods, namely milk and water kefir. Turns out your gut bacteria have a lot to do with what you crave, and when you change them, your cravings also change. Also, my acne cleared up, I'm less anxious, and I'm not constipated at least one morning a week anymore, yaaaay!
Any probiotics will work starting out, but I got obsessed with kefir once I confirmed all the changes were straight-up because of it. You can buy some at the store or get grains to make your own.

I'm 105 lbs, 5 ft, 30y/o. I do not exercise. For breakfast I have a banana. WFH lunch is something simple like a medium sized bowl of marinara pasta. Dinner is meat, carbs, and veggies, with the veggie portion being the biggest. It would be something like half a pan fried chicken breast, steamed broccoli, rice. For dessert it's usually a tangerine, yogurt pack, or cereal. I completely cut out soda and juice and solely drink water, milk sometimes.

That's my lolita lifestyle. Was not too different before the pandemic except I would get lunch at a cafeteria somewhere instead while working. People scream genetics at me but it's more I've had these good habits since I was young and I don't look to food for comfort or to get that feeling where you are just completely knocked out after a meal unless it's a special occasion. Like my friends would actively try to get into "food comas" or they would take up baking and use it as an excuse to gorge. It would be they only time of the day they could be happy and I think that's why it gets people so fucked up.

If you are obsessing over your diet I would advise people to approach their food as more of a utility thing and focus in on other hobbies to get that serotonin boost elsewhere. Eat slower, so your stomach has time to register that you are full/rewire your brain. I take at least 30m for every meal except breakfast.

Exactly, you don't know anything about the people responding to you. They could have a capsule wardrobe, they could only buy local, natural materials or make their own clothing. Assuming they have a constant stream of poly dresses being shipped to them from Japan is just a cope to try to make them look bad and absolve yourself of any personal responsibility.

Luckily I start work soon so I can maybe start to get back to a routine but man, why tf did I do this to myself. I lost 40lbs in 2019 and now it’s almost all back.

Every time people (myself included) talk about preferring cotton people come out of the woodwork with why they love poly, like how it's so easy to wash and won't fade, etc. etc.

A good chunk of people here don't mind poly based on the posts I've seen, despite my own personal bias toward cotton I can still see that. And some brands are still putting out pieces in cotton. Like BABY. So...you can like cotton and still follow trends. And AP is rereleasing stuff fairly often so it's still keeping up with what's current to buy rereleased and MTOs. And cotton isn't inherently good for the environment or people on its own. There are factors like the large amount of water that it can take to produce cotton textiles and the unethical practices of the people in India or wherever who employ those who pick it.

I don't care one way or the other about the environment beyond ensuring corporations are held accountable for reducing emissions, I just think it's intellectually dishonest to pretend there is that high of a chance a gull is some handmade only, never buy firsthand, only buy locally and not having things shipped to them queen for the environment whether they are arguing about sustainability or not. It's dumb to be upset with that anon above for having the reasonable assumption that lolitas, like most other humans on earth, still engage in environmentally unfriendly behavior.

I'm 99 lbs and 5'3. I also don't exercise. I eat whatever I feel like, though. I have bacon egg and cheese sandwich (homemade) 1-2 times per week for bfast, or 2 glazed donuts 1-2 times a week. Other days I usually have peanut butter toast and juice.

Lunch is usually cheesey pasta or fish or curry with lentils or chicken over rice. Or chick fil a.

Dinner is either Taco Bell or another curry/pasta/fish dish.

I have a lightning fast metabolism and am just super lucky.

I'd love to be someone's petite lolita sugar baby if anyone wants to drop their email, I'll give you the gf experience and video chat with you and send lewds. I'm Germanic/Scandinavian/French descent and have super pale skin and long dark hair.

I don't usually watch what I eat because I compensate by doing a lot of exercise everyday. But now that I'm working full time I don't have the time or energy to keep going on long runs everyday. I'm struggling a lot reducing the calory income, but I don't want to start gaining weight...
>>
>>10502027
They can totally care and be different, but to pretend like lolitas care more about the environment than a normie when we consume just as much if not more is retarded. I wasn't even originally apart of this argument because demonizing individuals for corporate emissions is a retarded stance to take but the idiotic argument that a typical gull is at all likely to care about the environment beyond the general amount and consensus of most people in developed countries will never not be stupid.

I can agree, there is a decent portion who like the poly. But anytime you post about a preference, you're going to get dissent.
And while I understand your mention of Baby, I don't believe the majority of people complaining about AP are interested in switching brands.

But yes, besides that point, it's impossible to be perfect while still actively participating in society to make change. It's just a troll argument to deflect not made in good faith. Acting like an alternative fashion isn't going to have environmentalists is not an argument.

> lightning fast metabolism
You know this doesn’t exist right? It’s all about calories in and calories out, metabolism makes maybe 100-200 calories of difference at the very maximum unless you have hormone issues. I’m 92lbs at 5’4” and even though I feel like I eat “whatever I want”, the reality is that I can eat the foods I do and maintain my weight due to the small portion sizes, which is likely your case as well. Your stomach gets used to eating less, so it doesn’t feel like limiting yourself— you just get full faster.

I used to lift before corona happened. Went from 37.75 B 30.75 W 39.5 H to 36/28/38 from ~2 days a week in like half a year? The weight loss was steady and feeling strong was nice. I probably should have gone to the gym a lot more. Now I'm a weak little shit and have lost muscle but am around the same measurements. I need to hit the cardio and at least run around my neighborhood. I gained about 5 pounds back after losing 10 during all of this corona nonsense and I'm upset about it.

If it keeps you from overeating, and you're making sure your vitamin intake is correct, it doesn't really matter especially if you've got a good exercise routine. I don't like my food swimming in grease either, but it's better to be swimming in grease if it makes you feel sated. There's a lot of cultures which do have surprisingly fatty foods, but they maintain their weight well because they eat smaller portions. It's greasy, but it's a small portion.

I was wondering how this conversation got so far. Oh... yeah, anon, a lot of people don't actually know where onions comes from or what it takes to grow it.

I understand that. Whenever I start packing on a few pounds more then I appreciate, I just look to see what's changed from previously. Usually I find the culprit is just that I've bought takeout more then usual or some sort of processed snack. Chips and takeout are my weakness. I too struggled many, many years ago, so I find dieting isn't the best way to go for me.

Maybe don't diet. You said you use to struggle so you must've gotten to weight you liked without anorexia at play. Maybe instead of dieting, just look to see if there's been a lifestyle change that could be contributing whether... maybe you're busy and you've been eating out more then usual, maybe you've been exercising less, maybe you found some sort of snack food recently that, while delicious, is packing on more pounds then you intended, and the answer is... just not buying it more then once a month or more. I find there's some foods that if I buy them, I tend to eat way more then I should.

I'd seek less to diet, and more if there's a bad habit you've picked up. Usually, when I cut out the bad habit, I find a few months later my weight goes back down pretty quick.
>>
>>10509412
And to give a solid example of that, Chipotle. A few years back I use to buy takeout coming home from class, usually a side of bacon chedder fries. My ex-b/f went on a 'health spree', and was like, "Dude, Chipotle's healthier, let's go to Chipotle." No doubt rice, beans, and a little meat is healthier then bacon chedder fries. I started gaining weight.

It may have been healthier, but the calorie value in one burrito was the same as almost 3 sides of bacon cheddar fries from the other restaurant. When I stopped eating Chipotle, my weight dropped back down within a few months.

Now, that could have nothing to do with why you're gaining weight, but little things like that can add up, and then you don't really need to diet, you just need to cut out the habit causing you to gain weight.

tall lolita here (176cm) . i’ve been plateaued on 140 lbs for the past few months or so and i’m not sure whether it’s my dysmorphia or not but i literally feel like i look like a landwhale if i’m not doing at least 24h water/liquid fasts multiple times a week and even then it’s iffy

i have some hormonal problems that are probably affecting my weight retention and distribution in some way but in conjunction with my brain meds i’m paranoid that i’m just gonna be holding onto the fat forever. even when i’ve been active it doesn’t do much in the way of shedding weight off or building muscle. knowing me it’s probably bc of the fasting and restrictions since i probably eat at most 1100 a day and at the least like 300. it sucks but if i eat anymore my brain freaks out

that was a bit of a ramble but do any recovering ana-chans have resources or tips/resources on adjusting your diet to be better suited to weight loss without destroying your metabolism in starvation mode?
>>
>>10509673
Eat regularly or do fasts occasionally. You need to exercise more as well. Your metabolism is probably all fucked up from so much yoyo-ing. Do some weight training, you will gain muscle which burns a lot more calories per pound than fat does.

If you have an active lifestyle you can eat 2000 calories with no issue and maintain a healthy/low weight. Also for women it seems like you can gain and lose up to 10lb or some shit when you're on your period. It's insane how much bloat happens. I've lost 5lb overnight from pissing basically lol.

Also see a doctor to make sure you don't have hypothyroidism. You will need to take a pill for that if you do and it can fuck with BMR. IIRC you need to watch what you eat but not completely restrict with hypo.

Rooting for you. I'm around 172 cm and I plateau'd at 145 as well, but I wasn't exercising at all lol.
>>
>>10509673
>>10509691
Those are both healthy weights though. There’s no reason to think you have hypothyroidism.

I also have a history of ED and am currently at about 130 lb for 168 cm. Because of ED brain I want to be thinner, but I know I’m healthy. I find it’s helpful to keep a calorie app and make sure to consume/burn right around where they suggest for maintenance. If you want to lose a little weight you can set it to lose 1/2 or 1 lb per week. The one I use also calls you out if you set too low of a calorie goal, which is good.
>>

OP here, for better ref i’m not sure what my actual issue is but i took some blood tests earlier this year and fsr my testosterone levels are waaaay higher than it should be even though i don’t think i’ve ever taken any meds to cause it to be as high as it is. i have a feeling it’s having an effect on my weight distribution though but i could easily be wrong

ty for the tips especially irt weight training, i used to lift in high school but i got super out of shape. since then i’ve been on and off with cardio but i really want to get back into weights and core focused stuff

i’m gonna try and schedule something with an endocrinologist or gyno soon but covid makes everything 10000x harder to schedule with specialists. in the meantime though i’m gonna try and get a therapy sesh in so i don’t end up starving myself into a useless pulp and wasting all my burando bucks getting tube fed

Ring fit adventure is finally back in stock in my city so I bought it and have been using it for the last two days. I’ve tried a few different things like exercise bikes, tabatas, just plain walking, but I just can’t it’s so fucking boring. I always start out strong and then quit after a week or two.

I have much higher hopes for ring fit! It’s actually fun and I am not just staring at my watch waiting for it to be over. I’m even a little bit sore so I think it’s working.

I also stick to around 1200 a day with an emphasis on eating protein.

I lost 12 pounds at the beginning of quarantine but I’ve gained almost 5 back :( I’m back on track though and shooting for 115 and hopefully 110 eventually @ 5’7” currently 122 :|

Bronkaid is a really good appetite suppressant that you can get over the counter if you don’t have access to anything stronger. You have to sign for it like certain cough medicines, but anyone can buy it. Pair w caffeine for best results.

Can a diet anon give me their weekly meal plan?
I'm in dire need of a plan as I'm too busy to think of my own meals.
>>
>>10510253
Not a special diet, but my daily/weekly intake is as such:

Snacks: apples, pears, grapes(sometimes because they're too sweet for me) bananas rarely, yogurt(siggis cuz it doesn't taste too sweet), berries, melons

Typical meal:

1) salad with tomato, arugula/mixed greens/kale/etc base, throw some other fiber on there and chicken, black beans/choice of beans for protein

2) chicken/salmon, brown rice or forgo grains/rice, and some kind of steamed or cooked in a small amount of oil vegetables. Leafy vegetables are the best like bokchoy or even kale. Garlic works well as seasoning.

3) hardboiled eggs, a sweet potato/yam, other easily prepared easy shit

Treats: a couple pieces of chocolate like toblerone, very small slice of cake/pie/etc, Ice cream(you can eat this everyday and still lose weight if you're portioning like one tablespoon a day)

Honestly it's all about moderation, portion size, and drinking a bunch of water. If you're consuming a lot of fiber and fresh vegetables and fruit and health carbs you're going to feel full for longer and your skin and body will feel better overall. I also rarely eat red meat, typically only during my period and very little. If you're preparing all of your food and cooking a lot you will appreciate it more imo. I like to cook a few portions then save them in individual containers and microwave later for easy use. Don't buy junk food because you will probably binge eat it unless you have perfect self control. Have fresh vegetables and fruits handy so you have healthy good foods to snack on. You can treat yourself once in a while to junk food, but if you're not disciplined this is a slippery slope. Start slowly and be steady. Type A personality tactics don't seem to have high success here. I had the most success with weight loss and overall health when I slowly cut out shit food and started cooking and meal prepping for myself.

Oh yea, one last thing, if you're still feeling hungry, wait for your food to settle.
>>
>>10511644
Obviously, also go exercise. Even walking a few times a week or doing some weight training using only body weight a few times a week will be very good for your health and facilitate a healthy heart and body.

Imo you gotta develop a healthy relationship with food and that will help you overall in life vs yo-yo bullshit dieting. Do some research on nutrition and watch cooking videos and read recipes. Try cooking more for yourself. It's really rewarding.
>>
>>10511647
Seconding everything this anon said, that’s the deal, it will make you loose weight in a constant rate until you hit a healthy weight, won’t let you feeling hungry or irritated and it will be something you can actually maintain.

5'0 95lbs. No snacks, a cup of green tea for lunch and another after I eat my meal for the day around 5:00. I usually eat rice with some meat and sometimes a bit of veggies. My go to food is eggs since they have most of the nutrients you need. I don't count calories anymore but I assume I'm maintaining at around 1000-1200. No exercise anymore cause I'm lazy and don't want to go out anymore so I've lost some weight since quarantine started(104ish). Losing weight is mostly about dieting, exercise only ever made me have a flat stomach and thicc calves.

I agree, though exercise is quite important when you're just starting out with the diet because it tones your body and prevents you from getting skinny-fat or ending up with loose skin (especially if you're about to drop a lot of weight)

If you end up having pcos try cutting gluten and dairy out. I lost 90lbs in a year calorie counting while going gluten and dairy free... gained back 60 this year eating the same calories but trying to be able to eat gluten again. feels bad.
>>
>>10518608
Sounds like you've been given correct advice but chose to ignore it. I'll leave you with this bit of info though.
1lb is 3000 calories. You need to burn 3k to lose one pound. Unless you are obese, the safest way to lose weight is to lose 1lb a week.

Or just get surgery you lazy fuck.
>>
>>10518618
i've been thinking about going gluten or dairy free since i don't really eat a bunch of either realistically (i think the only thing i eat semi-frequently with both is pasta? i'm not really a bread person and i've been eating a lot less dairy) but i think if i tried to cut both i would go full malnourished mode LOL

i've still been plateau'd in terms of my numerical weight since my initial post but my waist + thighs have been looking better just from being a bit more active so that's a plus

i just ordered a new main piece so if that fits we'll be on the right track i guess

3500 calories is one pound. Also if Anon is obese they can lose more than 1lb a week. If they are morbidly obese they can lose a lot more as well.

As someone who tried, brand Ritalin, off brand concerta, biphentin, and finally vyvanse, it makes you feel a lot less like a crackhead.
Coming off of biphentin cold turkey after years have me mild psychosis, coming off of vyvanse had zero negative side affects (other then what was wrong with me before the meds I guess).
I recommend vyvanse over anything else 100 percent, it’s just waaaay more expensive if your insurance doesn’t cover it.

Pretty good if you're an adult and already have some sense. If you aren't needing it some days (e.g. it's the weekend and you don't need it for work or study) then you don't have to take it that day. If you know you struggle to keep weight on, think about the "easy" ways to increase energy in your food (more butter, oils, nut spreads rather than jam on toast, cream in coffee and tea) and look at washing it down with a supplement drink or even meal replacement drinks on top of your usual meals if you're finding you get the appetite effects
>>
If you have trouble cooking, skip meals as a result, and then binge or get takeout, you could always try a meal replacement. I went from eating like shit to using MANA as 80% of my meals with simple vegetarian dishes making up the other 20% and I'm down twenty-three pounds after eight years of just not giving a shit and ballooning out of control.

Take regular hot baths and soak as long as possible. Exfoliate twice a week and moisturize religiously. The goal is to teach you how to recognize that your body is something worth cherishing and caring for properly.

Get rid of every sugary drink in your house and replace it with sugarfree sparkling water in a flavor you love. Find a tea blend that you actually like and keep it on hand. If you've eaten within the last two hours, haven't been physical, and think you're hungry, have a cup of tea before you decide to eat anything.

If you know you're not going to be able to stop yourself from eating all of something, take a quarter of it and offer the rest to someone else. If you can't do that, then don't buy whatever food's tempting you. It's a lot easier to not eat something bad for you when it's still at the store.

Count your calories and remember that the goal is to build long-term habits, not hold out until you reach your target weight. It isn't impossible.
>>
>>10522691

Adding on; if you binge, treat the urge to binge like you'd treat the urge to self-harm. Drink something and distract yourself until the urge passes.
>>

I use Huel as a meal replacement because Im working in another city for a few months. Its really delicious. Its like dried lentils and stuff and you just add hot water.

Any tips for patience while just starting to lose weight? I ballooned up to over 200lb because of a long period of depression. I’m losing weight at a reasonable pace, 2lb/week, but I can’t help but obsess over it because I want my old body back now, you know?
>>
>>10525534

Celebrate your little milestones and when you feel down, try to remember that you're doing it right and that the habits you're building now are sustainable.

You're going to be a lot less likely to regain suddenly and you're going to feel great.
