QUESTION: 21y/o female here. I was going through a fast food phase so I gained about 15-20lbs in the last year. What are some diets or something that you've tried and have worked for you?

  1. calculate your tdee (google it) and eat less calories than that to lose weight. seriously, this shit isn't that difficult, people gotta stop going on about fad diets.

  2. it takes deficit of 3500 calories (assuming you are still getting decent amount of protein and carbs and other nutrients) to loose a pound of fat. so if your rmr is 2500, take in 2000 every day, and you should lose somewhere about a pound in a week.

    Eat healthy, and get some exercise, if you are disciplined, it will take you 3 months to shed that sh*t.

    Good luck!

  4. A fad diet or one you can't maintain will just cause you to gain the weight back.
    Simply make a diet change - eat more veggies, less junk/fat. Stop eating fast food, try to add exercise. Do it gradually so you don't fall back to your old ways.

  7. I cut down my diet to 3 meals a day ... I found that I used to eat when I was bored, happy, sad, confused, basically I love food and I need to snack every 2 hours :(

    Lol this is like the worst tip ever, I'm sorry.

    1. Seriously... just stop eating the fast food and the pounds should fly off without you having to worry about it. A few years ago I lost around 10-15lbs in a couple of months just by cutting out soda.

  9. Just cutting down on your food portions really help. When you eat a lot, it can cause your stomach to expand, therefore tricking your brain into thinking you need more food to be full. I use to eat large portions, but ended up cutting it down little-by-little. So now, I get full a lot faster now and don't end up eating as much.

    Nevertheless, I still eat the same things I ate before- its just that I don't eat as much of it. Ended up losing ten pounds (but this was a gradual process that took me four months), but the small portion habit has stuck with me, so I've been able to maintain my weight.
    - Drink a lot of water or green tea when you're quarter-way through your meal
    - And ONLY eat until you're full and you can feel your tummy start to expand. Not until your plate is finished (you can save that for later).

  10. Eat less
    Exercise more
    Stop eating disgusting crap
    Temporary diet = temporary weight loss

    Not that fucking hard. How'd you get into UW again?

  11. Fad diets don't work long term.

    Counting calories until your brain starts to subtly realize the amount of food you are supposed to eat is a good idea. You don't need to count forever.

    You can still eat whatever you want (for the most part)

  12. Black coffee! It's an effective appetite suppressant.
