starvation diet is 850-1000 calories per day?

I eat less than that normally without trying to starve myself anyway, I don't think it's that bad

 

Also have anyone tried intermittent fasting?

Sorry, but you can't spot reduce.

I meant toning. You can work on the muscles of a specific area to improve the appearance

Oh. Well, any exercise will work out your muscles and give your legs a firmer appearance. Losing fat helps too. Squats work out most of your leg muscles and your butt too. And they're super easy. I recommend lunges too. Front lunges, side lunges, back lunges. But I recommend full body workouts more.

Hi everyone!

 

I want to adress some things, because there are a lot of misconceptions in this topic.

 

1. There is no such thing as starvation mode. Not eating enough will not make you NOT lose weight. It is a myth, truly. But don't take this the wrong way - please eat enough calories to lose weight in a sustainable way. I would seriously not recommend eating under 1000.

Here is a link for those of you who wants a better explanation: http://www.aworkoutroutine.com/starvation-mode/

 

 

2. You cannot spot reduce fat. You cannot do "x" exercise to slim "y" part down, the human body does not work like that. Read this: https://breakingmuscle.com/learn/spot-reduction-one-final-attempt-to-kill-the-myth

 

3. Your weightloss can stall. Some weeks the scale won't show a loss. Sometimes you even will experience a gain even though you've successfully stuck to your diet. Don't let this discourage you! The human body is very comlex and let me just assure you that you are not gaining fat and can still be losing despite the scale not going down. When losing weight the fat cells replace the lost fat with water, hence you will sometimes not see a loss on the scale. You plateu. But once the fat cells release all the water you will lose a significant amount during a short time, this is called the "woosh" effect. Read more here: http://100down.org/the-whoosh-effect/

Also, if you increase your exercise and don't se a weight loss first - be calm! Exercising causes inflammation in the muscles, which makes the muscles retain water.

 

4. Measure multiple areas once a week to track progress because the scale, as mentioned before, doesn't always truly show your progress.

 

5. All the "lose 5 kg in a week!!!!11!!" stuff is utter b-u-l-l-s-h-i-t. You mostly lose water, it is not possible to lose 5 kilograms of fat in a week unless you are severely obese.

 

 

I know right, who am I to tell you what to do? Well, honestly.. reading a lot of the comments breaks my heart. It is like reading my old self before a lot of shit went downhill for me. But I can just assure you that slow and easy wins in the long run. Don't deprive yourselves, you can reach your goals without being miserable.

Height- 5'1

Hw-130lbs

Cw-115lbs

Gw-105lbs

 

After slowly going down 15lbs I can't seem to get any lower. I am having a very hard time keeping a good diet. My family is always making me eat big dinners like spaghetti or something thing like that. And if I talk to them about it they get mad at me for wanting to lose weight (even though they are the ones who called me fat in the first place)

When I was 130lbs they called me fat but now at 115lbs they tell me I'm way too skinny and they should force feed me.

 

It's very frustrating. Any advice?

Im on a keto diet for a week already


im 1,73m and when i started i was 60kg amgplz.png


 I felt so round and bad about myself, but i was never a person


who goes on diets coz i never needed that, i was always average,


didnt really matter how much i ate, i was always the same weight, but i guess


im getting older and things change lol


So i decided to try keto and i already lost 3kg,


of course its water weight, but still im happy something is changing laugh.png


the hardest thing is to get rid of old habits.


I always ate rice, noodles, bread before and now i cant do that anymore,


which is reaaaally hard, but the key is to find good recipes and read nutritional


information,  dont trust anything whats written on the package,


it may say low carbs, no sugar and etc. but when you check the back


you see 4356567g of sugar and other stuff which you dont need.


I will do a meal prep in the end of the week.


All week i didnt really follow how much exactly carbs i ate, but now i will


try using myfitnesspal

Came back to this thread to ask for some in-depth and professional health tips.

So starting off, I've just had a medical exmination last 2 weeks and here's what I got: At a height of 5'6'', I weigh 205 lbs and to top it off, a BP (at that time) of 145/90

 

Heck, things got out of hand and here am I. So after that med exam, I started my adventure to a healthier life.

I looked for the calorie deficit calculator (how much calorie should you intake to properly lose weight without starving oneself) I've seen months before but I can't find it now, could be of great help.

 

I would like to ask for help regarding that matter and along with it, a meal plan to complement that calorie deficit plan. Right now, I go with quaker outs with fruits and nuts for breakfast and a complete meal with rice in lunch (since that's the only thing available in our office) and hardly nothing (or egg or oatmeal again) for dinner.

 

For physical activities, I always walk going to office and back (10~15 minute walk, one way) and once I got home, I jog (intervals) and simple workout (yknow, push ups, crunches, etc) for an hour and a half, everyday.

 

Well now, if someone could help me construct a more detailed meal plan and could suggest a plan for physical activities as well (as much as possible, no equipment, as I'm homebound lol), it would be greatly appreciated!

I baked my first keto bread


which was a fail


375g of bread - 35g of carbs ohdearplz.png


but ye i wont eat it alone and not in one day,


only 1-2 slices a day.


Biggest mistake was coconut flour whcih has 24g of carbs per 100g


and baking powder - 33,6g per 100g rlytearpls.png


well next time ifi make it again, I will make sure


i use almond flour and baking powder with less carbs.


I didnt have a bread form so it doesnt really look like bread lol


and taste is interesting since coconut has that sweetness and i put some salt.


overall this bread isnt super bad, at least its better than normal bread

Your weight was fine before but I agree with the rest of your post. I prioritize glycemic index over total carbohydrates though they kinda go hand in hand.

1200 calories per day is the minimum for a female but it depends on your height, weight, activity level, and age. I just googled this and maybe you can try this calculator: https://authoritynutrition.com/how-many-calories-per-day/ 

 

I don't know what kind of oats you are using, but I recommend steel cut oats versus instant or rolled oats. It has a lower glycemic index and will keep you feeling fuller longer. Eat brown rice versus white if you can. You should add veggies to your dinner as well. It's recommended that 50% of a meal consists of veggies, 25% protein (example meat, egg), and 25% carbs (example rice). 

 

Your jogging and resistance training sounds good. Fitness Blender on Youtube is good if you want a variety of at home workouts.

I recently decided on dieting. Going on my third week but haven't weighed myself so I don't really know if I have lose anything. 
This past week my friends and I decided to go to the gym and went for 6 days with one rest day.

My weight stopped dropping for a whiiile and now i checked


and im 55,5kg , woooooo


if i was doing this diet alone, i would have stopped already.


I understood i cant really have anything sweet or else i will


start having cravings for more ;__;


We bought mascarpone its a bit sweet and i ate so much, really felt


like cheating, thought i will get kicked out of ketosis, but i didnt !! dave.png


but ye, now i know and i wont eat anything sweet other than black 100% cocao chocolate,


which at first was super bitter and tbh i never ever liked it, i always found it disgusting, but now


i started liking it and i taste some sweetness, so whenever i crave for something and


feel like cheating i take a bite of dark chocolate.

I don't exactly know where to go for this, and this thread isn't very active to be honest, but well, it's gonna have to do for now. I've been on a diet since the end of June now, after suffering health problems (mainly back pains) for a good part of 2017. Also feeling gross with myself, body image wasn't so good either, and overall personal issues led me to take some actions towards a healthier me. I have now lost 18 kgs total thus far, and hope to lose 30 more hopefully if things go well.

 

It's still frustrating because while body image is getting better, it's still nowhere near where it was 4 years ago. I desperately want to fit in my clothes again, because I love them and feel like I could express myself and who I am through them. But it's a process, and I'll get there eventually anyway, and finally feel like myself again.

 

I had already lost a massive amount of weight several years ago, so I know I can do this, but I really want it to stick this time. Sadly, life sometimes gets in the way of your plans, but you gotta do your very best anyway. This time I'm losing at a slower pace, which I think is better. I also experienced my 1st weight loss in a very traumatic way under extremely challenging and tiring circumstances, but I'm in a great head-space this time, so I think that can make a difference on the long-term.

 

I'm basically counting everything I eat, measuring every grams, calories, and reporting them. Using myfitnesspal as well, and it has been extremely helpful thus far. I try to eat around 1400 calories a day, but to be honest, I feel full before I reach that limit most of the times. I try to still take on enough calories, because I know my body needs it, and that it ain't healthy not to. I cut on carbs heavily, processed food entirely. I prioritize vegetables, fruits, meat and milk-based food. I allow myself cheat days regularly, because eating is a very social activity in my country, and I don't want to feel like shit everytime I go out and eat with friends and family, that's actually something I struggled with a lot the 1st time around. It can sometime slow me down for several days or even weeks, but it's alright, it's definitely better to take care of my mental health as well during this process, and not just be strict and harsh on myself all the time. I want to develop a good relationship to food, and not a punishing one, so it'll take time, but I'll get there!

 

And that's it for now. See y'all in a few months. Fighting everybody!

It's 2018 and people still belive the fast/slow metabolism thingand starvation mode.

When weightloss is just CICO. You have to find your TDEE and eat less calories than it and thats all.

I just cut out fast food and sweets last month and I'm hoping to get down to at least 47 kg by the end of the year. It's hard but I think I'll be fine, I have 2 cheat days once a month.

I'm on the starvation diet because I'm way too busy, so I spend a lot of my days sleeping... if I'm not sleeping, I'll be studying. If I'm not studying, I'm in class. However, I did try intermittent fasting and it definitely works.... Trying to hit 120 lbs rn gahhh.

Not on a diet but I wonder how much weight I'll lose from today.  I have no appetite and I didn't sleep enough.  I woke up 5 hours ago and all I've had is miso soup, 3/4th of a cup of tea, and leftover pieces from a granola bar.  It could be worse I suppose.

 

Edit:  Right after I typed this I pulled myself up by the bootstraps and fed myself.  Now I need the willpower to stop using this message board to procrastinate instead of study.

Hi! Coconut flour does seem to have a lot of carbs but a big part of it is fiber so it doesn't count! You need to keep track of net carbs (total carb grams per serving minus the grams of fiber per serving).

TMI:

 

: You need fiber in a high protein or high fat diet or you won't be able to ... ya know... poop

 

 

I tried recipes w coconut flour but either the coconut flavour was too strong or the egg flavour way too strong and it tasted like an omelette :/ I also tried some PB cookies w/ coconut flour yesterday and thank god the PB overpowered the coconut but 1 cookie is TINY so I had 6 the whole day warstarplz.png

edit: btw it took me a while to realize posts are old lol, sorry

i should keep an eye on this thread, tho i kinda wish it was called healthy eating thread instead of diet laugh.png but that might be me being oversensitive as a former anorexic. 

 

anywayyyy i love eating and i love cooking and i love healthy foods! i stick to a ketogenic diet more or less tho i had a huge setback during christmas. trying to get back into shape and my usual routine of things. i'm on about 2000 cal a day tho i don't count calories but i do increase them on occasion to fit my workout. my worst enemy is my troubled sleep. when i don't sleep i get a craving for sugars and complex carbohydrates you wouldn't believe...

so minor setback, i couldn't eat eggs in the morning so my whole day is off the wagon. 

 

coffee and fruit salad for breakfast, not enough calories and ofc, loads of sugar. 

 

3 sugar cookies as an intermittent snack oof. since i worked out this morning my body was basically burning nothing. 

 

protein + fat charge to make up for this, avocado, chicken thighs and spinach. too few calories so far tho, under 1000 easily... increasing for dinner to reach my 2000 mark.
