Is mince meat processed?
lowest day ever, at which point does it become anorexia?
>>60819291>>60819279Book in with the doc and get it chopped off. 2kg right there.
>>60819296Anorexia just means no apetite. 800kcal is doable as a crash diet, but how much protein are you getting there? You could spare more protein within those 800kcal and cut out some fat.
>>60819279What kind of advice? The lose skin? Not much you can do about it except >>60819309That amount can't really be lost naturally in a reasonable amount of time
>>60819279Again, go to a doc. Only way to remove it, is to go under the knife. He might suggest you to lose more, but that's between you and your doctor. 4chan doesn't remove loose skin.
>>60819279supposed body fat
>>60819309>>60819340i know i'll need to get surgery, what i want to know is if the body fat calculator is accurate and if i need to lose more weighti was thinking of stopping at 84-85 kgs
>>60819289Mince will often have added fat or be comprised of high fat off-cuts. Extra lean mince or leaner cuts are preferable, but IIFYM. Normal mince will primarily be a fat componant of your macro budget.
>>60819399You're on the edge I think, the subcutanous fat on your loose skin will skew it. DEXA scan might be useful if you really want to know where you're at. Comparing muscle definition and seperation on your arms to reference pics might be a better guide to your real leaness.
Bros why do stairs absolutely kill me? I'm fine walking for long time, doing tough labor, cycling in rough and uneven terrain etc, but fucking stairs.
>>60819474so i may be already at my goal? i guess i should have gone to the doctor already, at least to start planning
>>60820041What does the calculator say if you removed 2kg of skin weight but kept the same measurements?
>>60820266like this? the body fat% doesn't really move when changing only weight
>>60819296>Implying you can still perform and don’t feel shit on a sub 1000 kcal dietwtf are you doing anon

After losing a good amount of weight I want to try the protein powder pill. I was also thinking about OMAD. Does a protein shake count towards your meal? Like could I have a protein shake in the morning, and a large 1200 calorie meal for dinner? Or would they have to be at the same time. Main reason is that I hit the gym in the morning.
>>60820761They are inserted calories, i would count it as a meal
>>60819279Congratulations on getting the weight off, king. You should be proud of yourself.
>>60820791Damn, maybe ill have my meal around midday, wait a few hours then hit the gym instead.
>>60819279I can tell from your skin that you've done great work on shedding weight, so good job. I agree with the others, get it chopped.
>>60819279Gj on your weight loss anon. Time to get the chop and think about bulking that chest after.
>>60819253Threadly reminder that calorie counting is a hoax invented by sugar advertisers.It's not a real weight loss strategy. It doesn't work.
>>60820820why do you need to take the protein powder before the gym?
>>60820855I was under the impression its better to eat before the gym for no energy. Also keep in mind I have no idea what im talking about
>>60820843Have you ever gorged yourself on chili to the point that you're full?
>>60820843God I wish we had ads today like they had in the 50s. Everything was weird but extremely genuine. No irony, no meta-humor. Just mascots, bright colors, and stupid jingles and slogans.
>>60820884>only propaganda and misinformation Yeah what an amazing time Retard
>>60820884grubhub has the ad for you bro
>>60820812>>60820826>>60820842thank you guysthe doctor that got me started on my diet is also a plastic surgeon so i'll check back with him as soon as i can
Reminder that intuitive eating is not a viable weight loss strategy, keto or not, and you must weigh your food, plan your diet, and count your calories, to be at a consistent caloric decifit neccessary for sustained weight loss.

>>60820843Back to tumblr intuitive eating shill.
>>60819253Bought a football to motivate me to do more cardio. Gonna learn dribbling/juggling etc. Started walking recently and it really clears your head. Also ran a little bit a couple of days ago and it made me sleep a lot better. It's one thing to read about the benefits, it's another thing entirely to feel it for yourself. Immediately when I finished running and was taking a shower I could breathe easier. People that say cardio is a waste of time are morons
>>60820884>Everything was weird but extremely genuineGenuine?
>>60820843Intuitive eating is not a viable weight loss strategy.
>Americans think there's such thing as genuine advertising
>>60820943>you must weigh your food, plan your diet, and count your caloriesNot only is this wrong, it's completely opposite of the truth. An outright lie.Counting calories is less effective than eating unlimited calories on a low-carb diet.
>>60820913You stupid fucking gorilla do you think we are living in a freer age of information by comparison? The only real truth you can experience is process and result based from your own perspective.

>intuitive eating works if it's keto
>>60819289No, minced meat is not processed any more than cutting a chicken into strips or chopping an onion. You could also claim ANY meat is processed by that logic because its gone through the process of butchery.It would be processed if they included other ingredients, often store hamburgers and such have additives.
>>60821004Do you think this is some sort of clever insult? I advocate low-carb diets for weight loss.This subreddit seems more in line with your beliefs: another ideology that tells people it's okay to drink Coca-Cola and eat processed food.
>just listen to your body and intuitively eat proteins and fats
>>60820966Genuine as in it lacked irony. Advertisements today make you very aware that the advertising dept knows that ads don't do shit. Ads back then were advertisements, not meta jokes on the state of consumption.

>>60821044CICO/"energy balance" is pseudoscience. You have the mistaken impression that it's legitimate because sugar sellers have spent over half a century telling people that sugar isn't fattening.In randomized controlled trials CICO has consistently failed. Anyone who is scientifically minded needs to reconcile with this fact. CICO is absolutely disproven by the scientific evidence.
>>60821185You have never been fat.
>>60821242>sugar sellers have spent over half a century telling people that sugar isn't fatteningWho the fuck thinks sugar isn't fattening? It's a well established fact everywhere in the world that sugar makes you fat, you will have to search far and fucking wide to find someone who thinks it isn't, even the most delusional tubby tumblerina fat acceptance beast will recognize that sugar fattens you.Don't be a cocksucking faggot.
>>60821242>actual doctors are sugar sellers and are biased>let me use their own studies to prove how they are sugar sellersmaybe they know something more than you who just read the glossary?
>>60821248I was fat my whole life until I figured out that calorie counting was a fraud. If you just eat healthy food you'll be a healthy weight.I stopped calorie counting and stopped eating carbs. This resulted in me reaching my goal weight and staying lean for the first time ever.I eat delicious food. I am never hungry. I eat carbs whenever I feel like it, but most carb foods are just worthless filler so I only end up having occasional treats. This Christmas I made (and ate) a lot of fudge.The second best thing about it (next to the fact that it actually works) is that I don't have to measure and track everything I eat in a diary. That is a severe mental illness. Calorie counting is a very unhealthy lifestyle.
>>60821305>Who the fuck thinks sugar isn't fattening?Just look at the OP: >>60819253He's probably not joking. He actually thinks weight loss is all about calories. You can also see various other posters chimping out at the suggestion that sugar is fattening.
>>60821348you keep conflating "health" and "weight loss"to you healthy food = food that makes you lose weight. bad food = weight gain food. this is a pretty retarded take, there's more to health than weight/fat gain/loss
Is this going to be the keto thread now? Asking because at this rate I might as well stop clicking on it.
>>60821408Just filter him. It's not like he has anything new to say.
>>60821397if i lose weight by eating sugar, is it not weight loss?
>>60821398>you keep conflating "health" and "weight loss"No I don't. Fat people aren't healthy. If you are healthy, you cannot be fat.You can lose weight unhealthily. For example veganism or plant-based diets will result in major weight loss. They also will result in muscle loss, bone density loss, and brain damage due to nutrient deficiency.Animal-based ketogenic diets make people healthy and this results in them being a healthy weight. Overweight people lose weight on low-carb, but an underweight person (e.g. a recovering anorexic) would gain healthy weight.
>>60821417How do I do it from android?
>>60821420If you lose weight eating sugar you will destroy your metabolism. This results in weight regain.
>>60821462Oh no, i ate too much strawberries, i ruined my metabolism
>intuitive eating, but keto
>>60821486You definitely need to stop eating carbs.Avoiding carbs on an ad libitum (unlimited calorie) diet results in greater weight loss than calorie counting."Intuitive eating" and "CICO" are the same fatty cope. They just can't stop eating sugary treats. Intuitive eaters accept that they will always be fat eating that way whereas CICO cultists think they will end up lean if they just log everything in a diary. Nevertheless the same addiction underpins both ideologies. They are just trying to rationalize their disgusting self-harming carb habits.

Why does this happen despite low IQ appeals to "thermodynamics"?>the body controls energy expenditure and mediates it based on stimulus or inputs>chronic long term hypocaloric dietary state will elicit a famine based physiological response>body will restrict energy expenditure by down regulating physiology to match energy input to surviveGuess what the body uses to control energy expenditure in physiology? A hormonal system to control blood sugar homeostasis, ie energy expenditure.>Do the individual marcos have an effect on energy expenditure, how about when combined?Fat and carbs are the two primary energetic sub-strait in body. The body does not like to hybridize their use from diet because of the negative effects on blood sugar which cause a hypocaloric energy expenditure state but also trigger hunger rather quickly after such a mixed macro meal.This is why low-carb high fat or high-carb low fat works best for expenditure in normal population, because that energy output is consistent without the down side of hypocaloric states elicited from mixed macro diets which are fat storing.CICO is pseudo science in the field of human healthy because on top of thermodynamics there is human physiology which controls energy expenditure in response to environmental inputs you research illiterate faggot.

I take it black now and it's so fuckin good.separetely, I'd like to confess that I've been INCREDIBLY depressed in the last few days, and yesterday I caved and got a big pizza and wings. needless to say it was amazing, but it's fucked up my week. today is a new day, and I plan to get back on track and walk about 1.5, 2 hrs today. Overall I'm down 15 lbs since February which I'm happy with, but I've occassionaly still had these binge instances which are really hard to shake. I've even gone to therapy for it but it wasn't incredibly helpful "Anon just take a cold shower. Just do something like drink tea instead when the craving comes on". any /binge/ here know the feeling? how the fuck do you deal with these cravings? food is still my drug. it's very shameful. I'm not allowing it to control me AS MUCH (given I've lost the 15 lbs), but it's still there. I just want the cravings to go away for good - hell I'd prefer that over the actual weight loss. sometimes I feel like the cravings control my life
>>60822428So high fat, low carb is what I should be doing? I'm not lazy with independent research but you know, I am looking for an operating basis while I cut and learn more.

>>60819279Collagen supplements (DYOR)By the way you count your calories to settle into your new caloric intake, then it just feels natural to eat just enough.
>>60822954i already eat tons of protein daily though, how much of a difference would it make supplementing it directly?
Been on a camping trip with my family and terrified about weighing in when I get back, because I haven't been counting. It's only a few days and we hiked at least ten miles a day though.
Summary of the CICO/keto debate in this thread:* CICO works because it has to. If you move more than you eat the energy has to come from somewhere.* In studies, people told to eat keto and not count lost more weight than people told to count calories. This is because <garbled pseudoscience>Yes keto works better for many people than counting, because they are faggots who don't count their food correctly. Keto radically changes your diet so it takes a while to adapt to it which creates a deficit more reliably for morons than trying to actually do it on purpose. This does not invalidate CICO.By the way, studies also show simply telling people to eat more protein results in more weight loss than telling them to count calories.Counting calories isn't a "lifestyle" also lol. It takes like five seconds.
>>60822768Eat a high fat, moderate protein diet with 20g or less carb in the diet. If you have an inflammatory condition like histamine reaction that number should be close to zero. Also if you're coming off a mixed macro diet transition slowly. People with no adaptions to high fat will have it rough as the body adapts for a month or two.Over time try mixing in intermittent fasting or OMAD(one meal a day) as your body gets slowly used to a reduced or fixed window feeding periodicity. After sometime on a high fat diet stuff like fasting for accelerated weight loss is rather easy to do on high-fat low carb. >>60822839Doing a suboptimal weight loss diet with increased hunger signaling that often leads to failure long term because no understanding of physiology? No thanks.
Oh also re: keto: the national weight control registry, which tracks people who've lost over 10% of bodyweight and kept it off for at least two years, says the majority of them did it with low fat diets.
>>60823130Well I got it recommended to me back when I was going from big fat to medium fat. Ended up with no loose skin. Supposedly supplementing collagen in proper form improves the elasticity of skin and helps it shrink down.
>>60819296You're gonna fuck up your shit doing this. Definitely not getting enough fat for hormone production. It's a marathon not a sprint. If you crash and burn you'll end up worse than before. The sprint mindset is what got you fat in the first place, needing instant gratification
>>60823257"Lower carb" consistently beats out higher carb diets in studies. Additionally CICO fails its adherents massively because hypocaloric state with sugar in diet over months to years rails hunger signaling in a very negative way and its adherents are more than likely to yoyo and fail their diet. An effect which is very well understood in research.There are ads prior to 1950s promoting weight gain for women because the ancestor never had to deal with a the saturation of mixed macro diets which shit the bed of energy expenditure.CICO is a pseudo scientific scam because its not thermodynamics that dictates energy expenditure but human physiology where the macros each have unique effects on the body. Especially when certain macros are combined. >try that again you research illiterate faggot
>>60823281I've been 1500-1600cal/day mostly IF & OMAD, eating at a consistent time with a carby snack in the morning. More close to 35-60g carbs/day. A month ago I was pounding McD's and other garbage but my diet has been mostly on point as of late. Probably too low in protein because I've done the bare minimum with cooking so using eggs as a crutch.

How do I control my hunger pains /fat/? They seem to be getting worse despite me losing weight. Shouldn't it get easier as time goes on? Maybe I need to do a big cheat meal.
>>60823549post height/weight/diet faggotyes it should get easier, and there shouldn't be any pain at all what are you talking aboun
>>60823549You get used to your diet. Drink coffee/tea or eat stuff like pickles or your choice of low calorie snack if you feel the need to eat.
>>60822741The first most important thing to understand is that the component of food which causes binging is carbohydrate. Carbs in food are like alcohol in a drink.The second most important thing to understand is that when you have an addiction, you can't manage that addiction by limiting consumption. The only strategy that works is avoidance.Alcoholics can't fix their problem with an app that tracks how many drinks they have. They need to quit drinking.

>>60823665Make sure you're getting enough dietary fat. Protein satiety maxes out at 30% of intake. Fat is most satiating. 1:1 protein to fat by weight is a perfect ratio.Additionally you can just eat more as long as you avoid carbs. Calorie restriction isn't necessary. Eating to satiety works if you're eating saturated fat and protein without carbs or vegetable oils.

Any 6'2" or taller fatsos here that also had some background in powerlifting before skyrocketing thanks to the coof?I was reasonably close to a natty 1/2/3/4 two years ago at 260lb and now I'm 320lb, while starting TRT. Yeah, I know TRT will equate to weight gain, but hopefully moreso in the form of muscle as I've started working out again, and before I start a serious cut (I've done keto and IF respectively before with moderate success).Was just wondering if someone else had a similar story and what worked for them in the long run.

>>60822741(1/2)I know what you're going through anon, I deal with emotional binges as well. The way I am currently dealing with my binges is based on the advice they give smokers: change your brand of cigarettes to make smoking less pleasurable. I generally binge due to stress or depressive type feelings. I crave high-fat/high-salt foods and generally binge until I cannot eat any more. I always keep a bunch of veggies on hand now, and none of the food I generally like to binge. No chips in the house, no frozen chicken or pizza. Don't make the binge easy. I allocate a certain amount of money to spend on food each week, and if I have spent most of that at a grocery store, then I don't have it to spend on take-out. For whatever reason, I find it harder to break my spending rules than my eating rules. Now, when I get a craving that I cannot shake off with distractions here is my routine:1. Drink a full glass of water. This immediately puts something in my stomach, and sometimes the sloshing mimics the feeling of fullness.2. Pull out a mix of vegetables and start cutting them into even, bite-sized pieces. Work on getting the bits as uniform as possible. It gives a task to focus on, rather than the bad feeling triggering the binge. Binges come from feeling out of control, so assert control of a very tiny space: your cutting board. If I feel in control of the space, it takes away from the chaos of an impending binge. Make a whole bowl full of them.3. Get some garlic at least, and whatever aromatics you like: herbs/ginger etc. Cut them into a paste, or as close as you can get. Strong smells help with mood, and lots of fresh scents can make me less interested in pizza.
>>60822741(2/2)4. I crave grease and salt in my binges. I will keep bacon grease from my family's breakfasts in the fridge. Melt a tablespoon in a big frying pan or wok if you have it. Saute the veggies in the fat until crisp-tender. Add some onions sauce at the end for more salt.5. Eat as many veggies as you need to feel full. I find that I do not eat as much as I would if it were pizza, and what I do eat is still low calorie. Also, the uncomfortable feeling doesn't seem to last as long.Maybe I'm just substituting another unhealthy behavior, but I'm already obsessive about food. I have now started this process and treat it as almost ritual. I find chopping the veggies a bit meditative now. I've done this for a few months, and I am at a point where I can use my cutting time to examine why I really want to stuff myself. Sometimes I feel ok before cooking everything up, so I put it all away as meal prep for something else. I don't know if this is of any use to you, or if my head is even stranger than your own, but if you are desperate, then give this a try. It has definitely helped me deal with my binge tendencies without sabotaging my diet.Thanks for reading my blog post.
>>60819253Newbie question that doesn’t deserve it’s own thread:I’m not that smart so I’m just trying to make my diet change as simple as possible. Is it safe to say I’ll lose weight and see results if I (1) completely cut out soda and stick to milk/water, (2) completely cut out fast food and chips, and (3) work out 6/7 days a week?I just want to drop like 10-15 pounds to eliminate this stomach fat and im learning how to cook proper meals at home to replace fast food (baked chicken or fish with greens on the side, maybe pasta once a week).Work outs consist of lifting and hiit-style cardio on the treadmill.Also, how long might it take to see a difference?
>terrible, uncontrollable urge to eat chocolate/junk food when It's available>binge hard. Inhale literally everything in sight>enter an almost trance state where I don't realise the reality of what I did until afterwardsI have a fucking terrible relationship with food. There's something wrong with me, I physically can't stop myself until it's too late and then my brain says "well you already fucked up, so go ahead you worthless retard, you're already far over your calories for today" and it snowballs I know 1000% I need to take responsibility for my own behaviour. I don't know how to stop myself. I deliberately only take enough cash to buy my healthy groceries now, and don't go to the store for anything else anymore. I live with my family and I can't tell them not to bring that shit into the house, but it takes an insane amount of willpower on my end to stop my fat fucking hands from grabbing everything in sight. When my family gets a takeaway my brain is screaming that it wants some too. I feel like a crack addict. It's like there's a void in me only momentarily filled by gorging on food.I hate myself. I just want to be alive. I've already lost so much of my life to this.
>>60823769throw it away, they're slowly trying to kill u
>>60824910>Also, how long might it take to see a difference?20-30 lb to see a difference, but you'll feel it befre then. As for whether you'll lose weight, just count your calories and don't go over your TDEE. Doesn't matter what you eat.
>>60824201I'm like 140kg at 185cm
>>60824920You may need to talk to a therapist anon. You are clearly addicted to food, and that addiction had to start somewhere. Figure out why you binge (stress/loneliness/sadness) and then you need to find a better way to deal with the problem. It will not be easy I'm sorry to say, but it is your only path forward.
>>60824910Read sticky, water only, nutrition > fitness for cutting.
>>60824920The addiction goes away after you abstain from carbs for a while. I used to struggle to not buy pastries and candies at the grocery store but now they don't seem appealing to me at all.
>>60824920Stop eatingStop eatingStop eating
>>60825064>>60825112Thank you anons. I think Therapy would be a good option, especially if they have experience with food addiction specifically. I'll see if anyone would be open, though I'd be very nervous. And I will look into eating a lot less carbs, I suppose they do take up most of my diet when I think about it, even when I'm trying to be healthy and calorie count I still eat a lot of rice and bread in proportion to everything else. I have a big problem with bread and candy in particular.
>>60825108Black coffee's good too. Negligible calories, natural laxative and appetite suppressant.
>>60819253What's a good "natural" laxative (something I could buy at a small grocery store)? I was doing keto with some low fasting and ate carbs for easter, now have the liquid shits. I just want them out at once instead going every half hour

This is a fatbrain question, but are there any foods that consume more calories to digest?
>>60820992Because carby foods are Generally way more calorie dense than fatty foods
>>60826592Not more than the food provides but yes things like nuts or fibrous veggies take more calories to consume than a piece of bread

>>60820855If I don’t get protein before I hit the gym and work hard, then I crash within 30 min. of finishing at the gym. It’s either that or I need to get electrolytes and glucose in me soon afterwards. I’d rather prevent such a crash than deal with it afterwards. Driving home afterwards can be like driving drunk.

I feel really shit guysI'm pretty sure I have gyno. My man tits look like they belong on a guy with a gut twice the size of mine. I lose about 12-14lbs in the past month and a half but all it has done was make it more obvious I have a bad case of gyno. I probably should have been exercising more. So I've gone back to a more normal diet, eating at maintenance but I still keep carbs to 20g or less a day, I've also been doing some calisthenics and cardioIdk what to do. I'm panicking that the changes I've made have somehow made things worse, now I'm freaking out about every little thing in my life. This fucking sucks man, I was never even close to being obese and I have the most pathetic looking bodywhat do i do?
>>60827570Lift anon, lift
>>60827662Gyms are closed. It's okay, I can go to a calisthenics gym so I can do dips, pull ups and rows, all of that shit. I can also do cardio ofcI really think the calorie restrictions made things worse. I was too tired to exercise on 1000-1200 calories a day
>>60827711Gyms are closed here as well anon, can you get some basic dumbbells? Not saying calisthenics aren't good but there are days one is just not in the mood to go to the gym but still can be arsed to lift home.
>>60819253Can't get rid of this fucking childhood fat
>>60827780lose more weight, also nice tits.
>>60827744I can still do calisthenics at home, I just won't be able to do pull ups. maybe I could get some dumbells too
Stalled for 2 weeks. Have lost 7 pounds over next two weeks. Is this consistency at work?
>>60827812What's my body fat % ?
>>60827827It happens. Just keep it up and it WILL show results eventually.
>>60827521Oh man, i'm at 136kg, I really hope I don't have to undergo surgery.
>>60820913Like that shit changed.Back then it was like "fat bad, eat sugar instead".Now you get "fat AND sugar bad, have artificial sweeteners that give you gyno"
>>60827346I weigh in tomorrow, and I’m not certain at all Imm gonna have lost any weight. He’ll, I might’ve gained a pound. But I’m not going to be unhappy about it, because I just found out last night I can deadlift 290. I can lift more than I weigh, which feels fucking great, and opposite of where I was when I started.
>>60822037same bro, good luck. I have already lost nearly 20 pounds. I feel good. you got this, brother.

I just started dieting and I simply can't stomach plain oatmeal. The taste just makes me want to vomit, even if it's dressed up with fruit and cinnamon. Is the lower-sugar version of Quaker oatmeal really so bad?
>all I've eaten today so far is a turkey sandwich with some carrots, celery, and a banana>comes to about 400 cals>don't feel hungry at allWhat do?
>>60829027if you're not hungry then don't eat
>>60821030Normally you just shit them out. Digestive tracts aren't nuclear reactors. Carbohydrates can be easily broken into simple sugars through fast enzymes and immediately absorbed while fat is very inert and takes bile and time to break down into a form you can absorb so you can't get all of it if that's all you're eating.
>>60820843Calorie counting originates in fad diets from the 1920s you doofus, women wanted to be full skelly mode so they could wear flapper dresses
>>60820028Horsepower...moving weight against gravity at a normal walking pace can be torture for us fatfucks.
>>60824594Bro, nothing wrong with a little refined sugar if your metabolism is crashing or you are about to exercise. It's actually great if you want to stave off a binge or go hard on the elliptical. It's all tools and different methods that you have to navigate to find what works for you, which is especially important for a group of mentally and physically damaged outcasts that rely on eating as a coping mechanism. Your methods mean fuck all here if they don't work for this specific class of people. Which is the real linchpin of the CICO vs. KETO argument.
>>60819296it is better to not eat for a day then eat a proper meal the next, than to eat at such a caloric deficit

177cm, 105kg female, I have binge eating problems after developing PTSD following a near murder attempt and years of my mother abusing me. Eating was and is my only comfort and recently things got bad so I just went from 55kg to nearly twice my weight. I can't trust myself to have any food in the house, I've meal prepped and just ate it all. Now I've emptied my fridge, there's just pickles, apples and oranges in it. Hired a meal plan service to send me prepped meals daily that will put me at 1000-1200kcal daily. High protein meals and I'm taking fish oil, multivitamin and minerals. Going to start drinking only green tea or this yerba mate stuff I saw people mentioning. Going to add collagen powder to my drinks and hydrate more. I feel now that I've paid for 12 weeks meal prep it's going to go better. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, had to be to avoid getting beatings so having started this thing feels more serious, almost like homework. I'm better at performing as I'm told than coming up with things myself. Once I'm used to the hunger and portion sizes I'm going to start couch to 5k to gain some stamina. My mother kept me sitting at my desk studying so much that I could never walk much, so I'm going to try fixing it. Wish me luck, I'm really scared and nervous.

I overfed my dog and in 3 months he went from 38 to 46 lbs. My plan is to take him on 3 mile runs every day and an easy 30 minute walk on the off days. Also I will be cutting his food from 2 cups to 1 cup per day. Should I ease into it at all?
>>60821408I hope not but people have to STOP replying to the ketofag. he shits up the thread and retards allow him to continue.
>>60831407Nah, just feed him around the end of the day so he doesn't bother you while sleeping due to hunger.
>>60830962I had my mum drop me off at a 24 hour library to study overnight for exams and when I went to the McDonald nearby to have a hot chocolate this guy stabbed me for my purse because I froze up. Been scared of going outside ever since. Got a big dog now that will protect me hopefully.
So, i've been doing keto for a while and I lost 4kg in a week and i'm pissing a fuck ton all the time.Does this mean it's finally working?
>>60831407Do be careful with the running, extra fat on an animal is hard on their joints.Also check his macros, it can be difficult to give your dog a complete diet when you're simply reducing feed.
>>60831407Just feed him a species appropriate diet and he won't be fat. For dogs that is meat. They're carnivores.
>>60831461Yes. Water loss at the start of keto means your insulin has gone down. Insulin is what causes water weight.So you're on the right track. Just keep insulin low (no carbs) to stay in fat burning mode.
>>60831639>Water loss at the start of keto means your insulin has gone downMust have had pretty high insulin levels then, aside from a few days where I ate some whole wheat pasta and bread, i've mostly sticked to no carb food since January and I didn't lose almost any weight nor felt like pissing this much yet.Also, does it matter if I stick mostly to protein?Most of what I eat is meat, fish and eggs, since I already ate those before.
My legs hurt so fucking much bros
>want to stop having food cravings>don’t want to drink coffee because it fucks my sleep
>went back to the gym this week>weight has gone up due to noob gainsAny way to counter this?
>>60821108No dude. They won't use the best cuts obviously. And the fact that it no longer looks like meat means they could put shit in like preservatives. There are even laws regulating the amount of real meat you are required to have in sausages. I won't be surprised if they play the same game with mince. Just buy real meat and smash it yourself.
>>60831720As long as you're not hungry, mostly protein is fine. If you aren't satiated you can add fat. Just avoid carbs.
>>60831857As they should be
Exercising is a blessing, bros, I went my usual weekly groceries routine today and I used to get tired walking up and down the streets, today I didn't even feel like I made any effort, also, I usually take out 3 or 4 bags of trash at once and I have to go up a 50m street to get to the place where im suposed to throw the trash, back when I was a lazy faggot I got tired and had to rest midway through, now I can go all the way no problem. I can't even imagine how good it must feel to be thin, it must feel godly, im feeling like a chad already. It's the little victories, bros, believe in yourselves, you can do it.
>>60820843Its interesting to note Marilyn Monroe's diet:Morning Meals:2 Raw eggs with warm milk.Supper Meals:Steak, liver, lamb chops, carrotsCheat meals:Ice cream or sundaesNo processed foods, no eating out at restaurants when she was on her own. Its interesting to note there were actual ads back in the ancestor's day advertising weight gain in women who wanted not to be a stick with some meat on em(not in the modern sense mind you).
>>60831461>>60831639>>60831720Bros, redpill me on keto, i dont want to be a faggot and say cico is shit because it obviously works, but I want faster results>how bad is the adaption period, and how long it takes>how it affects your thinking capabilities>how bad is keto flu>how is exercising affected by itI don't even know if the /fat/ general is the proper place to ask, but whatever. I really cant stay too much time on adaption period because im a software engineer and I unironically need to do high iq tasks on the daily, as retarded as that sounds, im afraid keto might impact my job effectiveness.
I swore I'd never do it to myself again (have got fat three times now), but I'm back on track. >-11.1kg since Feb 24th>Gyms re-open Monday (Britfag) so I can lift again in addition to running and yoga

>>60832802>software engineer>high iq tasksDOUBT
>>60832802Cognitive function works better on keto, especially for people with insulin resistance. The metabolic boost from keto is partially from your organs working better. The brain uses the most energy of any other organ.
>tfw started on Elvanse/Vyvanseno wonder they don't prescribe this to anorexic bitches because holy fuck, the hunger is completely gone. Getting 1000 kcal per day is a very bad idea from a pure metabolical view, right?

>>60827780Fill a water bladder with ice water and place it against the fat part for two to three hours a day for a month. Cryolypolysis will kill the subcutaneous fat cells.
>>60833504Is it mostly subcutaneous at your gut? That is, can you grab the fat like it's just under the skin? If so, see >>60833616 if you have a large amount it may take several months
>>60832591Nice one, anon. I've been committing myself to doing one hour walks every day and fuck has it been a blessing. I used to get winded just going to the grocery store across the street. I'd get gym highs just from going to the local post office. It was fucking ridiculous but now I'm on my way to being able to walk for an indefinite amount of time without getting too tired and it's really fucking motivated me to see what other inconveniences I'll be able to overcome as the weight loss continues. Keep at it, anon. Always nice to read about the small wins.
>>60828307Thanks, I will keep going for all my fatty soon-to-be-fit comrades out there. Good luck to you too, 20 pounds is already a significant difference and it only gets better. It might take some time but it's a lifelong change.
>>60827521that's minus 47kgs.. how long did you do it?
>>60832802Keto isn't some magical way to eat everything you want and lose weight, if this happens is because fat and protein are super filling and your appetite will go away very quickly. This also applies to fasting and (way slower) when counting calories. At some point your body will adapt and stop tormenting you into demanding more food.That's it anon. In the end you need to teach yourself discipline and rules, about nutrition, self-control and exercising. The method that works in the long-term is the best, whatever applies to you. My biggest complaint about keto is the limitations when eating (try cooking without 90% of ingredients, or even eating out, it's a pain in the ass). I gave up intermittent fasting because I didn't like how it made me feel, and also because it collided with my lifting. It's up to you to see what works best anon. Oh and the local ketofag alone is enough to scare off anyone sane from keto, but this applies to any zealot who found a new religion to preach against the stupid infidels who won't see the light. Some people just want to feel better than others; the purpose of this thread is mutual help and I hope this wall of text will help someone.
>>60832591Same here anon. I always hate lifting and going out, now it's the main priority of my day when I wake up. Feeling like a chad is the one way to describe it, it's so empowering to be full of energy, life and self-esteem. I wish I did it years ago but better late than never. My life feels like it has restarted and I can only be grateful to whoever helped and proud of myself for finding the strength of will to do this.
>>60832802If you are metabolically damaged (eg fatty liver, pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes etc.), which is you are obese you almost certainly are, then low-carb or keto is an excellent way to bypass your bodies problems with carbohydrate metabolism. Combine low-carb/keto with a CICO diet and you will lose weight.Generally speaking you don't have to do actual keto, i.e. almost no dietary carbs so your body produces ketones. Most of the benefits will be there doing low-carb (under say 60g of carbs per day, around 15-20g of carbs per meal), your body will have close to enough carbs/glucose to fuel your brain without relying on ketones, but without having so many dietary carbs that your dysfunctional carbohydrate metabolism is not overtaxed with insulin and blood sugar spikes. Giving your brain that small dose of glucose will overcome a lot of the keto downsides like "flu" and brain fog.
>>60821108Mince is processed in the sense that it's comprised of fatty off cuts and has extra beef fat added to it. Compared to a whole cut of beef, mince will have a lot more fat in it and it becomes a more caloric expensive protein source than other cuts of meat. IIFYM but something to keep in mind when weighing up making burgers vs a steak/stew. Lean mince is good choice and doesn't have these problems.
hey anons, does anyone know where the whole "you should only lose 1-2 pounds a week" thing comes from? Is there some side effect to losing more than that per week, or is it just the goblins trying to steal my weight loss gains again?
>>60821242Read the sticky >>17018637Intuitive eating, keto or not, is magic escapism from the need to count and plan calories and macros and has no place on /fit/.
>>60834503Metabolism slowdown, starvation mode, muscle loss even harder than usual (your heart is a muscle). This obviously shouldn't be taken as a law set in stone as it's ok for giga obese, but caution is always required if you're cutting too much without medical supervision.
>>60834503Goblins. It avoids some pitfalls that normies will fall into from shit and meme crash diets like muscle wasting from insufficient protein (especially dangerous muscle wasting in heart valves), micro deficiencies, and electrolyte imbalances. Some early crash diets relied on collagen as a protein source (e.g. bone broth, which is an incomplete protein source lacking many essential amino acids) before amino acids needs were properly understood and people dropped dead from lack of complete protein after 6 months. For the general population aiming for less of a deficit means they will eat more food and will mostly avoid those pitfalls.The standard medical crash diet, for when some fat cunt needs to lose weight fast for life saving surgery, is now something like Optifast made by Nestle, which is around 650kcal and 60g of protein per day, plus 100kcal or so from leafy greens supplemented on top. Works fine and gives them enough protein and electrolytes so they don't drop dead and equates to a 1000-2000+kcal deficit per day.You can do something similar with more protein. Just make sure you get enough electrolytes and take a multi on top.
>>60834503These are all myths unless you eat a high Carb diet
>>60819279Simple, don't eat and your body will use the skin as nutrients. Look up the guy who fasted for a year
>>60820966That is fucking bonkers
>>60834687He had pounds of lose skin and grew aged cheddar in the flaps and folds
>>60834663>>60834595kk ty anons, I've already been taking multivitamins and most days I'm just eating chicken and spinach so my protein intake's been alright, and I've already been taking multis daily, I'll just throw in some electrolyte sources. also if my main source of weight loss is from burning calories through cardio (1.5-1.8kish calories daily) do I still need to worry about heart muscle wasting since I'm using the muscle so much?
>>60823314Is collagen a protein or something?I'm looking at a few options, and theres one available as a protein powder https://www.bulknutrients.com.au/products/hcp/as hydrolyzed collagen peptides vs something likehttps://www.vpa.com.au/products/collagen-prowhich doesn't have any protein with the same ingredients?
I'm thinking about joining a boxing gym once I lose a good chunk of this weight and things begin to re-open, but I'd like to have a bit of a baseline of fitness before I get there. If I'm not expecting to gain a good deal of strength while heavily dieting, should I focus on cardio and a full-body calisthenics routine for getting in shape?
>>60834875Nah you're fine anon, if anything try counting so you can have some more specific numbers. An unwritten rule is to eat matching your BMR, and not go under it unless you're omega fat. Treat your calories burned from exercise as a bonus but not an excuse to eat more than you should. Exercise will increase your caloric need after all.Cardio is fine but if you want to hold on to every trace of muscle mass you have, lifting is the answer. Every gram of muscle you save by eating protein+lifting is a gram of muscle you won't need to rebuild when you're slim. Of course your body hates you so it will burn fat and muscle at the same time, you can protect some of the muscle but not all. Tldr your body isn't stupid, it won't eat away your heart unless you starve it to death but in that case it's natural selection anyway
>>60834977Cardio and lifting should go hand by hand for different reasons converging to the same goal: lose weight, keep muscle mass, look decent when less obese. Calisthenics/lifting is mandatory if you don't want to look like a fire victim when you are slim again.
>>60819253you can lose weight with a ketogenic diet without a caloric deficitcicofags are so fucking stupid and gay
frens, how does a plateau even happens? I'm in a 1500kcal deficit and stopped losing weight. How is it even possible? My body just turns a knob and it's suddenly consuming massively less calories every day while still sustaining literally the same mass? How??
>>60835769Usually it's water retention. You're still losing fat if you're eating at that kind of deficit, and eventually you'll lose the water and it'll look like you lost a ton in a single day/week. How long has the plateau been going on? They usually don't last much more than two weeks.
>>60835798four days but i got desperate since i missed my goal :(So my body is just retaining water because it thinks I'm having a hard time finding food right?That's a huge relief, thank you fren
>>60835839No problem. Plateaus are only really concerning after a couple weeks. Keep at it and if you chart your weight-loss over time, you'll see that you were losing during the plateau but the scale just wasn't reflecting it. After all, the scale measures everything, not just fat. WAGMI
I am determined for 23 hours a day and then my mind goes fucking blank and I just walk into the kitchen and bingeAnd it undoes all the cardio I do every day (running two miles) because I shove my facewtf how do you cure literal binge eating disorder
>>60835903What do you binge on? Maybe when you get that urge, just go for a walk instead, even in the middle of the night. That's what helped me
>>60819253Anyone use breath right strips? Thinking of wearing them during lifting and cardio for airway gainzz. On the real tho, I have a pesky nasal blockage that's ailed me since childhood, hoping for a decent solution
>>60835769Take measurements, log them. When you're feeling discouraged by the scale take measurements and see how far your body has come.
>>60835839You know you can break a plateau, do you anon?
I've been stuck at a BMI of 30 for years now and started calorie counting the other day. Problem is getting a good diet going, I have no idea what to cook, how to cook it, and how much to cook. I'm still eating junk but at least I eat less of it now, baby steps. Good luck to all my blubber benders out there.

Failed a day on couch to 5k for the first time today on week 6 day 2 and only did half of it, couldnt even run for more than 2 minutes after the 3 minute walk. felt like shit but I think it's because I'm not getting enough of some kind of nutrientMy legs have been sore for like 2 weeks now and I thought I was supposed to just push through it but now it's at actual pain stage and now I gotta rest, I'm hoping itll be gone in 5 days. I doubt I was pushing myself too hard since the program seems to be pretty consistent, so it must be lack of something I'm thinkingHope to restart week 6 on Tuesday
Started my weight loss journey on 22nd February, to this day I’ve lost just shy of 20 lbs. I’m a 280 lb fatty, should I increase the daily deficit or stick with this slower deficit?
>>60831152I've been stalling all year
>>60819253>Calculate your TDEE at sedentary>Eat about 500 less calories than your TDEEDoes that still apply if I do 1 hour of lifting and 1 hour of cardio every day?
>>60838376I found it best if you never count calories you expend lifting or by cardio
>>60832802>how bad is the adaption period, and how long it takesIt's not bad for me, and i've been a couch potato for about 6 years now, most I got was runny shit.It did take a bit to start feeling the effects, I started on January 16th and until this week I didn't start really feeling anything special, but apparently if you've been a mess for a long time it can actually take that long.And i'm not even sure it would taken that long if I actually had started informing myself earlier considering that for a month I was eating whole wheat bread everyday and sometimes ate whole wheat pasta every now and then since I thought they didn't have carbs.>how it affects your thinking capabilitiesI don't feel any different, honestly.>how bad is keto fluAs I said, the closest to it i've felt was that my shits were borderline liquid for about 3 weeks.>how is exercising affected by itCouldn't tell you much, all i've done yet is some lifting and walking, all of them did it while fasting and I didn't feel anything unusual.The main things i've felt was the liquid shits and this week having to piss a shit ton, but I have lost almost 5kg in the past 6 days, although I guess most of that is water weight I just pissed out.
>>60838376Never count excercise calories.Not only is it extremely hard to track how many you've lost exactly due to way too many variables, but it will just make you think you can get away with eating shit.
