@Skullbone
By slow metabolism she means she eats too much shit and doesn't move enough.

If she honestly had a slow metabolism then she'd be fucking cold all of the time tired constantly and morbidly obese even while eating starvation levels of calories.

Tell her to keep a food journal.
Anything that passes her lips gets photographed and logged. Even tiny pieces of candy "that shouldn't count' and those snacks that she rewards herself with.
Then have her use a pedometer ap to log her steps.

Harmless_Venom

@Skullbone
It's real, but uncommon. It's called metabolic syndrome. Usually it's caused by getting fat in the first place. The adipose uses hormones to fuck up your appetite regulation so you become just generally a very slow and tired person even considering your weight.

Not actually a fat fuck anymore but after going from 210 to 150 lbs then lean bulking up to 157 I feel like shit all the time. I basically never feel satisfied no matter how much I eat and I always feel low energy. Also have literally no sex drive. Only reason I'm not balooning up is because I stick to my macros.

@Supergrass
Fats (nutrients) are not the same as inflated fat cells. They are more calorie dense than other macros (protein and carbs) but they're better for you than carbs. You need a little bit of all three in your diet, but too many fats is never bad as long as you're not over your TDEE (unless you're trying to bulk of course).

Exactly how does fat make you resistant to insulin?

PackManBrainlure
PackManBrainlure

@Skullbone
It's the biggest meme in normiedom.

Fatties insist that they have a low metabolism (i.e. when the body uses less calories per time) and that's the reason they're fat. The real reason they're fat is simply because they eat too much. People tend to get a low metabolism when they don't move very much, have a low muscle mass, or eat low nutrients. If you're fat and cite the 'low metabolism' meme as your excuse, then that means you've somehow managed to eat a fuck ton of food while managing to avoid proteins and essential vitamins and minerals at all costs (and staying bed bound most of the time). Usually the only people with a genuine low metabolism are very skinny people who don't eat much and tend to have very low energy. Ironically, it's these same people that will eat once a day (which will consist of greasy garbage), and then they'll brag to fat people how they can eat whatever they want and not gain weight (because they think they have a high metabolism), and that's why you hear so many fatties say that they must have a low metabolism.

femanon here. i've been low carb for about a week now (cooking all my own meals consisting of vegetables and lean proteins and spices) and i've been working out pretty regularly for a few weeks with the intensity dvds my Veeky Forums bf lent me. i was feeling pretty good about how i looked this morning and felt that i had shed a bit of weight, and then i stepped on the scale and it said that i had actually gained about 6 pounds. i feel terrible and discouraged. I had lost about 40 pounds about a year ago and here i am doing it again, but now i'm officially the heaviest ive ever been at 190 and its seriously bothering me and has been making me want to cry because ive felt a lot better and more energetic and confident until now. i'm not giving up though I'm still going to push forward and make it. just needed a space where i could rant. we've all got this we're all gonna make it.

Your metabolism can variate from calculated BMR by up to 50% in both ways, plus your metabolism can go as low as 500 calories on a scarcity of food.

It depends on genetics, gut microbiotics that you have, your liver, pancreas and thyroid, lean mass, medicine you are taking and some other shit. There has been a research on that.

But I bet your friend is just fat and doesn't want to count calories, probably doing some meme exercise like yoga and thinking that she should be slim as a model.

@haveahappyday
Okay well to be fair this was a question you could Google yourself but I guess not everyone can be as smart as me. It says in the description of the product that it works off statistics and assumptions, meaning that it measures a few quantities--namely the amount of cells with excess water (muscle cells)--and using that information it compares your data against a person with a known muscle and fat composition to give you an estimated body fat percentage. It's an accurate machine but there will still be a deviation tail that will include a small percentage of people for which it will be inaccurate.

You can try using a different machine and see if you get a different result, or alternatively you can assume the machine is working properly and there's a biological reason why you are losing muscle (i.e. the relative calories burned working out sufficiently surpasses the amount of available energy from fat cells that can be utilized for muscle repair).

How much are you eating and how much are you working out?

@BlogWobbles
Stop weighing yourself everyday (purely for psychological reasons). You will lose weight slower as you get to a smaller size, and the natural weight variation (due to the digestive track and water retention) will cause you to have a harder time determining your weight loss trend unless you look at the long term trend (week to week) as opposed to the short term trend (day to day).

Skullbone

@TurtleCat
echoing this. I've been in a bad plateau for a while, but I notice that I'm still getting slimmer.

I think this is because my MR has gotten way smaller, and I've also been making huge fucking gains so water retention has gone up.

Still though, 'under the hood' good things are happening!

@DeathDog
I eat mainly dark meat but it's because it tastes better to me and has more nutrients besides just protein. There's still a lot of protein just only a little more in chicken breast. Also dark meat has a little more calories. If you're going for optimal efficiency then, yes, chicken breast is better but you can eat the wings and drumsticks as long as you're tracking your calories correctly. I keep it under usually 700 calories a day with chicken meat and get a lot of the mass of my intake from vegetables.

Carbs increase your blood sugar which increases your appetite and blood pressure. Avoiding carbs in order to enter ketosis is NOT the only reason why doctors recommend avoiding carbs while dieting.

Look it up yourself, don't beg me for readily available information at your fingertips unless I'm citing some obscure scientific field or some one-off study that was done (or if I'm writing a paper, which I'm obviously fucking not).

Fats are more calorie dense, but they do not have an effect on your blood sugar. You can safely eat lots of fats keeping in mind you will not be able to fill your stomach as much as you could with carbs or proteins.

It's not as simple as calories in = calories out. While that principle holds true, there are better and worse ways of taking in calories.

Also watch your tone from now on. I don't know what idea you have in your head that your brainlet status shouldn't hold you back from respecting your intellectually better.

Exercise. Increase your lean mass. Take a lot of nutrition and vitamins, so you can have more energy. Take fish oil supplements.

You can also get some probiotics and tablets that makes your gut microflora more healthy. Also I think there should be supplements aimed at weight loss through the increase of your activity. Have a cheat meal once a week where you eat more than you usually do, so your body doesn't lower it's metabolism because of scarcity.

You're out of the rapid weight loss phase. It's time to retake your perception of the situation. Start weighing once a week instead of everyday. Get a sewing tape measure and start measuring yourself and calculating your body fat once a week too. Recalculate your TDEE and adjust your eating habits accordingly. This is the time to be persistent with your goals because it's only going to get better from here.

lost 7 pounds in the past 2 weeks, not sure in total because didn't weigh myself until like a month and a half in. been walking 15K steps a day too which obviously helps and have one cheat day a week where I drink like 1-2k calories of alcohol and then eat whatever probably another 1-2k.

fat shit rooommate who always tells me i wont make it offers to pick up the stuff
one of the things is coconut milk that I use in replacement for heavy cream in some of my cooking
he ends up getting heavy cream
"It tastes better, plus it has less calories per serving anyways"
check the carton
the fucking small carton of it has 32 fucking servings
the serving size of the coconut milk is more than twice as big
end up cooking other stuff because fucking heavy cream

i swear to god I need a new roommate he's got to be trying to sabotage me

he ended up using the heavy cream with his breakfast cereal this morning because he forgot to pick up milk. The whole carton is 1600 calories and he used it all

Don’t focus so much on weight. Worry more about your body fat BF percentage. Scale watching does more harm than good.

Two ways to monitor your body fat. Either buy an Omron Fat Loss Monitor off Amazon for like 35 bucks, or use a tape and tape your abdomen (over the belly button) and your neck and then google the army’s body fat calculator:

http://www.calculator.net/army-body-fat-calculator.html

It’s more important to watch your body fat decrease than your weight. Again, weight can be misleading especially if you’re lifting and doing cardio.

I don’t care if I weight 210, 180, or 200 as lon as I’m cut, in good shape, and have around 12% BF.

Booteefool

@ZeroReborn
I mean if you're legitimately morbidly obese BF% measuring isn't going to help as much. There is legitimately nothing wrong with weighing in once or twice a week to keep track of it.

I'm not one of these people who get stressed over the scales or weigh myself daily or anything like that I just weigh myself once a week and plot it in excel just to a. gauge general progress and b. to have something nice to look at in the end

I have a realistic goals set and I know what to do to achieve it and progress is going as anticipated, I will check out that monitor though.

@Stark_Naked
at 155lbs you should be normie tier. assuming you are a grill mabe try for 135-140 since you dont have the muscle mass of a guy who would look normie fit at 155 given 125 lbm. if you done want to lose more weigh then try a recomp for 6 months which should give u some more muscle while cutting off some more fat. guys like curves yes...but not celulitis curves.

@Booteefool
I’m not saying to never use a scale I’m just saying there’s a more productive way to monitor your success.

Let’s say you weight 230 lbs. that means 1% body fat weighs 2.3 lbs. let’s say your 30% body fat. You’re working out daily lifting and HIIT training.

So you lose 3% body fat which would be 6.9 lbs BUT the scale is only telling you lost 3 or 4 lbs. a lot of people would get discouraged and either start slowing down their workouts, freaking out their diet isn’t wrong, or quitting entirely. By looking at the body fat percentage they’d realize they’ve lost almost 7 lbs of fat and probably gain a couple of pounds of muscle, which could completely motivate them to continue on.

Samefag from @SniperGod
here.

Hoping to go get some dinner. But every entree in the dining hall is either meat based or contains more than 20g carbs which is my entire fucking daily allowance. Which I guess might be okay if not for the fact that I've already had some carbs today so it would put me over.

Meat based isn't an option either because I'm a habitual vegetarian and the thought of eating meat deeply disgusts me -- not even from an ethical perspective, just as a visceral sort of thing.

What the fuck do I do. I've had less than 500 calories today, I'm way too fucking hungry for just a salad, even if I were to put some cheese on it or something.

I guess I could just not eat. But I know I'd regret it tomorrow. You either eat a moderate amount that's a little on the low side but not too far, or you eat nothing. It's the in-between that fucks your metabolism over and results in the headaches and such.

@CodeBuns
Broadly speaking, people get fat for one of two reasons: ignorance or addiction.

I see from the way you're writing that for you it was addiction.

Calm the fuck down, don't have an autistic meltdown. You're massively overreacting to not being able to find anything to eat right now. Hunger alone doesn't justify or account for the way you just lashed out, even though it was just over text.

You lost 5lbs. Do what you want as long as it's not a binge. You've earned it, and it won't set your progress back by more than about a day. That being said, you're fat, it wouldn't kill you to just pass on the eating altogether and go without adequate intake for the night if that's what you feel like you need to do. You don't have to freak out about it as much as you are.

I guess what I'm saying is your true colors as an addict are really showing through.

So I lost 160 pounds in the past 8 months. I'm down to a size 34 waist and a M/L shirt. Good shit. But my belly and thighs still look like a mess, I'm guessing loose skin and depleted fat cells. Anything I can do to help make em go away? I've got a physical coming up in a month, figure I'll ask my doctor then but I'd like to hear thoughts from you guys as well.

I havent lifted weights in about 2 months. I have been doing some minimal cardio though. I've recently been taking walks. Im too fat to run. I have bad genetics and my skin feels like its on fire the first 5 minutes of intense exercise. Makes me want to kill myself. Its getting better though since Im slowly losing weight. Im trying to make a fast final push to lose about 20-30lbs before I start college in the spring.

I was doing a lot of cardio back in the summer but the gym sold most of the stairmaster machines because they all started breaking down. So now I just go on walks. I did a bit of biking when it was warm out too.

@Crazy_Nice
has nothing to do with caloric deficit.

Is hunger arbitrary, or is always a sign that you
overate if you feel a bit full
or hunger pangs indicate that you're burning fat
And etc. Today for example I ate around 1200 between 9-3 and am just now feeling sort of hungry, 6PM.

I know it's a stupid question. I just want to know whether or not I can trust my own body.

Skin is usually pretty elastic and will shrink over time. But losing a 160lbs means you were what? Well over 300? So that degree of weight loss *might* require skin removal surgery.

6'2, 365 -> 205. I'll give it some time and keep lifting. I'll ask my doctor when I have my appointment and see what she says. Worst comes to worst I can afford some elective surgery but I'd prefer not to if at all possible.

Exactly. They end up eating all the shit that got them in trouble. Instead of cheat days or cheat meals just incorporate one or two of your favorite “bad” foods into your new eating habits.

For example: if you were eating fast food, processed foods, junk foods. Then pick one or two, give up the rest and move on. If you love pizza then just have s slice now and then, you don’t need a cheat day for it.

cardio is your friend user. it will help with fat loss but will do nothing to tone you up, ull need to lift for that. also a lack of cellulite is good, i have no sympathy for grills that confuse cellulite for curves. also as a grill try and focus more on lower body workouts as you can progress much more there than a guy. a grill with well developed bottom half is so good....love the 130lbs azn grill that can squat 220 lbs and deadlift 180lbs at my gym. the only grill to date that can distract me while i lift.

When it comes to IF, is skipping dinner preferable to skipping breakfast?

I feel like skipping breakfast just makes my hunger build up during the day and I feel ravenous by dinner time.

I also workout in the morning which may be another aspect of it, I feel like eating pre-post workout would help my muscle and help my workouts.

plus its harder to overeat in the morning, can’t eat a whole pizza in the morning, at night i can eat 2

Brad Armstrong, of Olathe, Kansas, was a /fat/fuck. He had been since childhood. It was because when his abusive alcoholic single father, Marty Armstrong, would beat him or rape his baby sister Lisa, he would retreat into food for comfort.

Because of his weight gain, the bullying it brought with it, and the sexually charged trauma of watching his sister be raped and being occasionally forced to participate, Brad learned to hate himself and his body at an early age, and started secretly practicing karate as a way of pretending he didn't.

Overeating was the beginning of a maladaptive turn toward an addictive personality. It followed Brad into adulthood, at which time, desperate for stronger sensations to blot out the bad memories, he let it progress into alcoholism and hard drug addiction. It didn't help that some sort of hybrid bio-nuclear warfare had supposedly wiped out all women on earth, leaving society in a state of ruin, sexual confusion and frustration, and mass violence.

Everything changed when Brad found an orphaned baby girl alone on the ground with no indication of whom had left her there or what to do with her. He took her under his wing and named her Buddy. Until she was adolescent, taking care of her had helped wean him off drugs and alcohol, but the traumatic memories came back hitting harder than ever. All it took was one pill, and he couldn't stop himself, and once again he barreled headlong into a crippling degree of dependence, isolating himself from his adopted daughter and becoming just as neglectful a father as his own had been abusive.

Feeling unloved and excessively restricted in her daily activities, Buddy ran away from home. Being that she was the only female anyone had seen in decades, it wasn't long before vast, gibbering legions of sweaty old perverts were after her, just as Brad had feared when he took her in.

So what did Brad do? He shaped the fuck up and used his karate skills to keep her safe.

If Brad could make it, we all will.

You are fasting to lose weight. But before you do that, you are eating over TDEE (I assume)

If you just ate at a reasonable deficit continually, it would probably be easier and definitely be more is in terms of learning how to keep your weight down over the long term.

Because most people aim for an average healthy weight, but they still have so much excess fat they just look fat still.

If you want to get rid of your gut and man boobs, you have to worry about your actual body fat percentage and get down to 10-15% body fat. One of the reasons building muscle is a good idea is because the more lean mass you have the easier it is to get get your body fat percent lower.

My goal weight initially was a healthy BMI, but clearly it's not enough so 80kg is my new goal of having a BMI of 22 and if I'm not satisfied then I'll buy some calipers to get my BF% and work from there.

depends on how much weight you're lifting, if light then the volume is okay, should add more sets though.
limit your DL to 5 reps, you can lift heavier and won't be sporadic

Started dieting 2 weeks ago
Keto, ~40 grams of calories/day
BMR is supposed to be 2060 calories
Cut food to 1400-1600 calories
Calculate everything, including butter used for frying
Walk 4-5 miles each day
Gained 2 pounds

Why the fuck is that? Do I really have a slow metabolism/genetics???

Got a few victories for you lads:

Cutting at 500 cals
In the course of 3 weeks, I binged pretty fucking hard
Still lost 0.8 kilos
That's 2 pounds over just under 3 weeks; honestly could have been so much worse
I'm not too upset, kek. I was expecting to step on the scale and be greeted by no progress at all
Good times were had with the lads as well, which is why I'm not too stressed; I'm willing to trade a week for those few days
Finally started wearing v neck shirts again; I looks pretty good in them

In other news:
Girlfriend doesn't like a female friend I have
Outright told me that she doesn't care if I talk to her or not, she just doesn't want to hear about it
Starting to realise my gf's attitude to friends is incredibly fucking toxic; she has very few, and although I love her, the way she treats people is very holier than thou
Starting to realise I don't agree with that; her behavior shouldn't be my behavior, and I don't agree with cutting people off for little shit
I think I should try to be a positive influence on other people
Realise that the way I've been treating this girl isn't the best; very flaky and avoiding getting coffee and catching up, despite not having seen her for about a year
To be fair, the friend was kinda a bitch and outright ruined my birthday a while ago, but I feel that people deserve second chances, and I think it's entirely possible that she's grown up
I'm getting coffee with her tomorrow; probably only for a short while
Been doing that with a lot of people I knew in highschool over the last few months, so this isn't random or out of the blue

Feeling pretty good desu. Feel like I've made a scale victory, and a social victory.

Alcohol's been my killer on this journey, but I've been pretty great the past month only drinking 1-2 nights per week.

Had 3 beers last night and woke up feeling like total scum and Im sick of it. Might try and take the next month 100% sober.

Were gonna make it.

Trying to get my uggo boyfriend working out more. He's 5'10, 250 pounds. His legs are fucking strong but the rest of him is disgusting fat. I'm getting him to workout 4 days a week for close to an hour. I'm going to whip his fatass into shape before he dies of hypertension. His main issue is that he claims he literally can't eat real food and it makes him gag. His diet is basically chicken nuggets, fries, an assortment of different candy and sometimes an apple. Citizens of Veeky Forums is there any hope that he's going to make it?

Stupidasole

@Evilember
Well, he can make it if he's willing to follow through with calorie counting and understanding that he'll be hungry with a shit diet like that when he could have twice the amount of food if he made better choices.
To be honest, if he's too much of a child to eat healthily, I feel there isn't that much hope because he obviously doesn't care enough to learn, grow up and be healthy. You shouldn't need someone else to take charge for your own health and body.

@Evilember
workout for years
don't eat shit food,haven't had fast food since last year and it was a few nuggets
refuse myself of yummy foods,haven't had a soda in years
everyone else in my house is downing sodas and junk and I deny myself trash and force myself not to eat them
do something to take my mind off food
drink nothing but tasteless water and black coffee
work my ass off at the gym and eat plain chicken breasts,broccoli,and nasty protein shakes with maybe a protein bar or a fruit as a treat
use a digital scale to calculate my calorie intake religiously
meanwhile some guy who eats nothing but chicken nuggies,fires,and candy has a Veeky Forums gf who basically drags him to the gym and tries to feed him healthy meals she cooks while I'm stuck in eternal loneliness cooking my own tasteless meals alone

sometimes i think what's the point of even lifting past my limits or even trying at the gym when i read shit like this. whats the fucking point of pushing for that last rep or stuffing my mouth with steamed broccoli or downing a chalky protein shake? why even lift brahs?

Already have a low kcal diet planned out for when I break the fast dumbass.

The point of the water fast was for rapid weight loss/gain control over cravings/reset taste buds so foods taste better.

You keep going with your 500 kcal deficit diet where you cheat and get yourself a 6k+ kcal takeaway and complain about only losing half a pound though.

@VisualMaster
Normal BMI is 125 to 163 for 5'8" which works if you don't have forty pounds of extra muscle on you. Use the links up top in the OP to calculate your body fat percentage. Make sure to copy the link and delete the parentheses words. Body fat will be a better gauge for what you should plan your goals around.

BlogWobbles
BlogWobbles

@Techpill
Why are you asking about it, if you have no plans to try it?

Technically it's not a meme. Without any real 'big' side effects, it's mostly harmless. You just have to have the fat for your body to eat

The Problem? You have to have a fucking huge ass will power to do it. So most people give up by day 3-5 anyways.

It's not dangerous just arduous. If you're seeing results from eating at a deficit keep doing what you're doing.

Day 5 of 23:1. Eating only once per day at noon. Low calorie meal with very high protein. Cardio + lifting every other day.

I already know if I look at the scale, I'll only get demotivated. I have to believe that I'm making progress.

I'm not feeling any hunger at all. This is weird, since on 16:8, I'd regularly have food cravings. Food cravings are completely non-existent and it's been extremely easy to maintain this plan so far. I hope this works out for me bros, I'm aiming for 2 weeks of this and seeing how I feel throughout, and if its worf.

Drop the beer and pizza. Getting over that dumb cunt is going to take more than hangovers and calories. Use this as an opportunity to better yourself so next time she comes into your life you can tell her to go fuck herself because your life is better now. Time to lift heavy objects for entertainment purposes.

Stop missing classes and being retarded on assignments and tests, obviously.

You can do that, it just takes even more willpower. Your brain is subsisting just fine, it's just holding out on you because like the lazy fatty you are you're not putting enough effort into making it work.

If you really just don't have that much willpower in you to handle this, you don't deserve to make it.
