Blogpost time to get the thread going
>-Post your goals, your current state, like yout weight or measurements;
Currently about 60kg at 172cm, started in July at ~66kg. GW is 55 at the bare minimum, it's almost underweight but I've been that weight before and still had fat legs so unfortunately I'm gonna have to reevaluate when I reach it and possibly lose more.
>-What you're going to do to change it and your methods (Weight training? Intermittent Fasting? Running? Raw eating? MyFitnessPal logs?);
Eating about 1200-1300 cal on average, I try to eat under 1200 on weekdays so I can go out for bigger meals on the weekend. No special diet except trying to cut down on sugar and bread. Doing sport 1-3 times a week and going for hr long walks on other days, and I plan on joining a gym in the next few months, I just wanna make sure I'm 100% committed and not wasting my money.
>-And how to be held accountable for it, like biweekly weigh-ins or measurings.
Weighing every day for consistency in my data, measuring when I feel skinny/try on clothes.

It's going suspiciously well so far, my hunger levels are manageable, had no real binges or serious cravings throwing me off track. But I'm only cautiously optimistic, I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop and to start binging and eating crap because that's what happened with past attempts. But I think there are some key differences this time
>found some really good low cal foods that work for me, also strawberries are really cheap atm so I'm living on them and yoghurt
>weighing every day
>focusing on overall average intake rather than trying to get 1200 exactly every single day
>eating at set times so I never get too hungry and never have to make a choice whether to snack or not

My biggest struggle is accurately calorie counting, it's almost impossible at restaurants and when other people make me food. I always worry that I'm eating more than I realize and try to round all my calorie counts up to compensate.

-Post your goals, your current state, like yout weight or measurements; I'm currently hovering around 145-148 but I'm pretty short (5 ft) so it's really bad. I put weight on incredibly quickly. My goal is 95 lbs but my REASONABLE goal for now is 120.
-What you're going to do to change it and your methods (Weight training? Intermittent Fasting? Running? Raw eating? MyFitnessPal logs?); I'm eating better because I had a hard time mentally during Corona and put on around 25 lbs from depression and overeating. I'm eating smaller portions and doing intermittent fasting while going for runs/walks. I don't have a lot of time to go to a gym right now but when I do I want to do a lot of core excercises!
-And how to be held accountable for it, like biweekly weigh-ins or measurings. I weigh myself every morning. I want to lose weight but I have very bad mental issues so I can't make it my whole life or else I'll spiral out of control but I am eating much better and drinking more water instead of alcohol.

Is this a good general diet (vegetarian and dairy free) for maintaining average muscle mass and low weight?
Breakfast: Banana, large cup of coffee with oat milk
Morning snack: 2 hard boiled eggs
Lunch: Noodles with chopped and pan fried veg (broccoli, cabbage, mushrooms, chillis, pepper, eggplant)
Dinner: Small portion of white rice with black/kidney beans, chopped onion and tomatoes.

For something sweet or other snacks: strawberries, coconut based yogurt, almonds, rice cakes

I’m terrible with exercise but very good at maintaining a diet, my biggest concern is lack of protein. Any thoughts?

No. 153682

>>153660
As you say, lack of protein is the key issue here. I had a similar problem. Do you like oats? Since having overnight oats with protein powder, I am getting 35g of protein in my breakfast which comes out to about 350 cals. I am 5'8" and 125lbs so aim for about 120-130g of protein a day. I know it's basic, but it has been a game changer. Try throwing some tofu in there. It's nice scrambled! I'd have like scrambled egg/tofu with some beans and sweet peppers. Maybe make an omelette with it? It is hard to say without knowing your build etc but maybe knock out a few of the sweet snacks in favour of higher protein foods. You will feel fuller for it and probably snack less.

>Post your goals, your current state, like your weight or measurements;
Currently I'm 5'2 and weigh 134lbs. I'v already lost about 10lbs during quarantine, but recently fell off the wagon when I realized I had nowhere to show off my weight loss. I'm within healthy range and I'm down to 19.2% body fat. But still that means I have around 30lbs of fat and no thanks. Ideally, I'd like to be around 1150-120 because I know once I'll put on a few more lbs of muscle mass before I start to loose weight. Ideally I'd have 10lbs or less of bodyfat.
>What you're going to do to change it and your methods (Weight training? Intermittent Fasting? Running? Raw eating? MyFitnessPal logs?);
I use FITINDEX as well as their smart scale but have been super lax about using it lately. I need back to daily morning weigh ins to hold myself accountable. I need to cut out some junk foods I've been eating and be more strict with 16:8 intermittent fasting. I also need to get back to running and weight lifting. I need to be doing cardio 6 days a week at least and weight lifting 3 days.
>And how to be held accountable for it, like biweekly weigh-ins or measuring.
Morning weigh ins every day, starting a tracking journal. I also want to put some money in a cute dress fund for when I get down under 125.

I'm torn about keto. I lost weight really quickly and my body looks good now, I didn't expect for it to work so well without exercising, counting calories etc. My hair and skin also look much better. I don't feel bloated anymore. And yet I'm thinking about dropping this diet because I constantly have nausea and I constantly need to drink water (it's also too expensive for me).

You won't necessarily feel as bloated as before when you'll re-introduce carbs into your diet. Keto may have changed your gut flora and insuline sensitivity, this effect lasts longer than the diet itself. Like above anon said, keep it low to moderate carb, it's ideal to have carbs before or after working out/moving around.

You go into ketosis daily when intermittent fasting as well. The metabolic benefits are better if you're fasting earlier in the day too (skipping dinner rather than breakfast). There's no right or wrong diet with IF.
I also cut out gluten (because of intolerance) which makes staying low carb pretty easy, and the carbs I do get are high quality whole food carbs. Honestly if you're really craving fruit, go for it. Make sure to reintroduce them slowly.

No. 154724

>>154714
It will only help you short term if you don't exercise your core muscles. Given it "forces you" to sit correctly, at the same time your muscles don't have to do as much effort to keep your posture as it should be, which will lead to them becoming weaker, ultimately messing up your posture long term (as you will struggle even more than before to keep it with the waist trainer off) and cause back pains anytime core is engaged for too long.

One positive of 2020 for me: I lost around 16 lbs so far during the pandemic/lock down.

In the first few months I lost weight through pure exercise by biking 2-3 hours a day, 5+ days a week. I love biking so this wasn't hard for me but my dumbass still ate way too much food so the weight loss was slow. I went from around 165 to 154 (I'm 5'8) in 5 months.

After seeing real progress I didn't want to sabotage my efforts anymore by overeating. My biggest issue was snacking, especially late at night. All my snacking would basically add up to eating a second dinner. I cut all that out but I never starve myself. It's not realistic and sustainable. If I feel hungry, I eat- just a way smaller portion. I'm now down to 149, my lowest weight in a decade. I don't have the cravings or the huge appetite anymore. It's crazy how bodies adapt to change.

My biggest challenge will be over winter. I always eat a shit ton of food when it's cold and I'll have to switch to a boring indoor exercise bike. The number isn't super important to me but I'm hoping to maybe get and maintain around 145 lbs.

I started at 72kg in 2018, dropped down to 59kg in 5/6 months via calorie counting and using random gym machines/minimal cardio. Then told myself i would slow bulk/maintain and lift for real using a suggested plan from /fit/. I still lift but i stopped calorie counting over a year ago and my gym going is irregular. 1-2x per week. Corona stress isnt helping.

I would advise you to first ask yourself why you seemingly can't stop eating. Seriously analyze your mental processes and emotions pertaining to food/eating. Are you eating because you are genuinely hungry and never feel full? Eating out of boredom? Eating to cope with emotional problems? Out of fear of going hungry?
Treatments for this sort of thing are really varied and knowing what's causing you to overeat can be beneficial in finding something that works for your specific case.

I would recommend HIIT (high intensity interval training). It's tough if you're pushing yourself but short and effective. If you do it regularly you can likely recomp a good amount of fat into muscle over 2 months as a newbie. LovingFit has a ton of free, good routines. You can sort by lower body but honestly you need to focus on your body overall because you can't spot reduce (your body is likely just predisposed to store fat on the thighs) and you can overtrain by only focusing on one area anyway. Just do 2-3 lower body-centric routines a week and that should serve to tone plenty. https://www.lovingfit.com/exercises-workouts/workout-routines

Weight loss is about what you eat, not how you work out. Working out helps I guess but since you can't target weight loss, you won't really be doing much but wasting time toning your muscles under fat.

If you want to tone, yes do the exercises that those anons have provided. But if you want to shrink in size, I recommend doing Whole30 diet. Or at least something REALLY close to it. Or another diet to shock your system and cause you to rapidly lose weight in a very short amount of time.

If you really wanna do whole30 without needing to set up, buy these staple ingredients:

- coconut milk
- fruit
- potatoes
- chicken, beef, pork (NONE of them should ever have any add-ins. Get them straight from the meat locker, do not get "special seasoning" meat)
- vegetables


Eat with these foods (if you wanna lose faster, scrap the potatoes), and you'll basically lose weight faster than CICO (water weight comes off quickly).

I'll reiterate: weight loss is about diet, not exercise. Abs are made in the kitchen.

I can't thank you enough anons, you've made me feel like maybe this isn't such an impossible task after all. The fact that the Chloe Ting workout can yield results after 3 weeks is extremely encouraging.

Regarding the need to target my entire body to see results: would it be okay to focus on lower body exercises and just do some simple arm workouts (eg. bicep curls) to tone my upper arms? Obviously in addition to a sensible diet that burns fat so the muscle can show.

General low carb to find out if there's a food intolerance would probably work well with less restrictions though. It requires a lot of willpower to stay at 20 and below carbs unless you're creative as fuck or don't care about what you're eating if it gets samesy.

You don't necessarily need coconut milk unless you plan on making coconut curries or need a thick cream-like product (I used coconut cream to make coconut banana smoothies). Almond milk works, cashew milk too. UNSWEETENED. Just nothing with oats or dairy. No wheat, no grain, nothing. Stay away from that shit for 30 days.

I'm not the one that recommended you keto. I would never do keto, it fucking sucks not being able to eat fruit or potatoes (for the love of god potatos). When I did Whole30, I ate potatoes almost every day and lost weight. You don't HAVE to eat potatos though and you'll shed weight faster.

If you think any of that sounds hard… Just know that I'm a lard ass who ordered out 7 days a week for lunch AND dinner and then I went to making homemade dinners and eating leftovers for lunch. No sugar, no dairy, no grains. It's only 30 days too. With that being said, even if you don't want to do exactly whole30, just try and keep a simple diet. Don't order out, make all of your meats from scratch and season yourself (do not use pre-mixed seasoning like lawrys or ms. dash).


I can list all the recipes I used and everything I did if anyone needs more info for whole30.

I have lost ~30 pounds since March. How did I do it? Stopped drinking alcohol. Seriously, I feel like I've discovered the secret to loosing weight. The pounds just melted off with very little work at all. I'm kind of bitter that I wasted all my good years being fat and all I would have had to do was stop drinking. I tried so many diets and other methods over the years, I could never loose anything. But at least now I feel pretty good and actually am happy looking in a mirror for the first time in years. I'm still about ~20 pounds away from my goal though so hopefully I can keep this up.

Obviously not everyone is an alcoholic like me but I feel like identifying the 1 thing that you are doing a lot that is adding calories (whether its soda or chips or alcohol or whatever) and cutting it out completely really makes a difference.

Congrats, anon. People never realize just how many calories are in alcohol. I would drink a six pack and that's 600 calories right there. Plus vodka… So many calories.

Congratulations. But have a white claw once in a while.

Can anyone think of a reason why my stomach looks flatter than it did before, but I haven't had any significant lifestyle changes? I started working out in the midst of quarantine but stopped a while ago. When I got on the scale, it said I've gained weight but my stomach looks flatter than it used to. The only guess I could throw out there is that I eat less now, but even then, I still eat like shit.

I'm 5'4 and 110 lbs. When I met my bf he thought I looked skelly at 95 (I thought I looked normal rip). At first I was indifferent to my weight but honestly gaining weight has done me a lot of favors in the face and butt department in my opinion. However I'm not a fan of the fat in my gut because I have small tits. I know you can't really spot treat but my concern is that it's taken years to increase my weight to this point. My food intake is so high because I eat several times a day and eat until I'm full and I'm worried how I'm gonna change my diet to something healthier and still be able to eat enough quantity to gain? Help me anons I'm retarded. Ideally I want to be 120 but I don't want my belly to be so round? What should I be eating/not eating to accomplish weight gain without a fat gut? I guess I need to be weight training? Is there a way that I can do that at home without a home gym because I don't have a car I can use atm.

Alright here's my plan.
Right now I'm 185lbs. My goal is to be in the 130s.

For diet I'm not going to track calories but I'm going to focus on fixing my eating habits. Right now I eat like an animal and if I want to be thin and stay thin then I will need to change how I eat. I actually love healthy food but since moving in with my in-laws I've been eating fast and easy food (I don't wanna be in the kitchen with them kek), so I'm going to try to meal prep more plant based meals so I don't eat like ass. For eating habits, I'm going to focus on eating slower, chewing way more, only eating when I feel my stomach growling, and leaving my food when I feel satisfied. I'm also going to stop eating at work and avoid eating food other people make.

For exercise, I'm going to bike 30 minutes a night before bed. I'm also going to go to the gym 3 times a week on top of that, honestly just to incline walk because I love it.

I started a few weeks ago but I was doing more exercise and it was super overwhelming and hard to stick to. I hope I can stick to this, it should be easy as long as I stay focused.

I've been rebalancing my eating habits for one month and I've lost 3kgs. Can't really go to the gym since it's closed for 6 weeks, but I plan to watch some videos to work out at home. I love cardio, but body building, not so much.

Is losing 3 kilos per month reasonnable? Kinda glad with my weight loss. I'm not restrictive with my diet, just eat a lot more vegetables with homemade seasonnings, stopped eating red meat (I don't eat it that much anyway), don't eat refined sweets, and just treat myself for my cheat meal day.

How to I curve me nighttime appetite? On most days I work from about noon to later in the evening, usually getting back at around 9-10 PM. I have a lunch break in the middle of the day, but by the time I get home I am super hungry from standing/walking/lifting things/just generally being on my feet all day. That usually means I get around to eating dinner at around 11 pm. I know its not good to be eating that late and I want to break the habit of eating so much before bed. I feel like it's already contributed to some extra weight on me but I don't know what else to do besides skipping dinner entirely.

dinner is a bit of a wildcard since I vary my dinners quite a lot and put more effort into them than any other meal.

>2x coffee with sweetner and either almond or soy milk

it is a myth, some people just feel the need to eat less than others or maybe they move around more in their day to day lives.

Or because bigger people who believe in fast/slow metabolisms and genetics and such have told them that.
I'll usually eat a shit ton of food early on or late in the day but then my adhd brain will get distracted by something and I don't think about eating for hours so it evens out and I don't gain weight. Like op I kinda need to tone up but I'll never have the dedication needed to get abs though lol

Goal weight: 50-55kg
Current weight: 59kg, 167cm

I started at 79kg last november and lost 20kg in a year with calorie counting. I am still unhappy with my figure cause i have pretty unfortunate fat distribution and very little muscle.
I am planning on working out but it's hard to start since i have no discipline in the lockdown. I try to drink a lot of water every day and completely cut out soda exept diet coke as an occasional treat.

I weigh myself every week and use the app LoseIt. Losing weight has been tricky cause i'm autistic about vegetables but calorie counting helps a lot with portion control.

Congrats, that's awesome!
Since a tracking app helped you discipline your diet, maybe a fitness app can help you discipline yourself for working out? Give them a try, at least. Good luck with getting in shape!

have you tried the workouts on youtube? I work out with them almost every day and I am quite satisfied with the results. I recommend lilly sabri. plus intermediate fasting.

love yourself girl, you're doing great so far!

>eat around 2000-3000 calories for 3 days in a week as well as a couple of 1500 days
>gain over 2kg
God, I know I ate too much but it wasn't 14000 calories extra!! Hopefully it's mainly water and comes off quickly, this is the worst fluctuation I've had since I started dieting and it's really demotivating.

Is there anything in particular about vegetables? I know the texture & smell can be a big issue for people.

Have you tried a greens/reds powder? You can get some that are berry or citrus tasting so they might work better for you while boosting your nutritional status

Learn what appropriate portions for you look like (calorie count until you really know it) and make that your normal. If your clothes get tight, eat less. If they get loose, eat more.

It's my dream to have a toned tummy, but I remain sad and flabby because I have an irrational fear of thickening my waist with ab workouts. My hips are narrow as is, so losing the little waist definition I have would complete my transformation towards looking like a literal ruler. What do, oh toned anons? Should I just combine crunches with booty-building exercises and pray to the ratio gods?

No. 160707

>>160705
Well this may not be good advice but I was also pressed with wanting to have a narrow waist which I just don't have because my ribs are wide and waist is narrow but since I started exercising I just forgot all those dumb worries of wanting to change my body shape and I just feel happy seeing some muscles.

Honestly, that's probably exactly what I needed to hear.

Well I am glad I persuaded you. Oh also I think if you really want to minimize the growth of your waist just don't do exercises for muscles on the sides of the torso. You can just do exercises for the front and back muscles

No. 160722

>>160713
Sorry for the dumb question, but what kind of exercise would engage only the front and back muscles? Sit-ups?

No. 160731

Has anyone done facial exercises? Do they work?

No. 160734

>>160722
Side ab muscles engage when you twist or lean your torso left or right in relation to the lower body (or vice versa). So any exercise that doesn't do that, that just goes up/down or forward/back and your body remains aligned.

I've gone from 71kg to 68.3 in 2 weeks. I'm 154cm.
I did a 24hr fast, then 1 week of 1000cals and now I'm staying at 1200 but eating back my cals. fasting between 7pm and 1pm. ive also quit drinking after having half a bottle to a bottle of wine a night! I'm doing the stripped 5x5 lifting plan and walking at least an hour a day. I'm feeling amazing. this is the first time I've ever "dieted" with a healthy frame of mind, seeing at as a treat for myself instead of a punishment. my goal is 65kg by the end of the year and then 55-60 eventually, depending how muscly I get.
I'll try to update weekly

>Post your goals, your current state, like yout weight or measurements;
Currently, i'm 166cm at 66kg, borderline on healthy and overweight.
>Chest: 35 inches, Waist: 27 inches, Hips: 39 inches.
I had previously weighed 78kg and lost all the weight by eating 1000 calories a day. I plan to do this again to get down to 58kg and then figure out maintaining.

>What you're going to do to change it and your methods

I like to do pure diet, i'm not that into exercise and get a good amount from my job where I'm almost constantly walking.

>And how to be held accountable for it, like biweekly weigh-ins or measurings.

Weekly weighs and measures, as well as myfitnesspal logging.

thank you non. I am super proud! today was hard because I started my period so I just wanted to eat everything and do nothing. so i upped my allowance to 1500 and still went to the gym and I'm feeling much better for it

>current state
5'2, 135ish lbs (makes me feel less lonely to see fellow anons in my height/weight range!).
My main goal is to get a smaller waist. I've been lifting bodybuilding-style 3-5 days a week for 5 years so I am mostly happy with my physique but carry my extra weight solely in my stomach.

>what you're going to do to change it and methods

Calorie counting, cutting out soda (I know, I'm retarded), and switching my workouts to just pilates and the occasional resistance band workout to maintain some of my muscle mass. If I lift heavy and do HIIT I want to eat more, so I've learned I can't train in my favorite way if I wanna lose weight :/

Side note: I've been doing dumbbell and resistance band workouts all throughout quarantine and have actually put on more muscle than ever (fml), but for the anons out there who want to build muscle at home it's totally possible with just dumbbells and a resistance band!

>accountability

I previously lost a bunch of weight by calorie counting, weighing myself once every two weeks and having one cheat day a week.

Good luck everyone!

I like Moving Mango, her workouts are creative even if she goes too fast for me sometimes. Blogilates annoys me too much, but her 30 minute long full-body videos are a good starting place

How do you get the organless look without photo editing?

No. 160991

>>160986
Realise that half the people screaming about organs seem to think that they take up about twice as much space as they actually do. Having a liver does not mean it’s impossible to have a small waist.

No. 160996

>>160986
Depends on how extreme you want or even can go but the easiest way is to just build muscle

No. 161012

Alright. I just have a hard time believing building muscle would flatten and reduce my waistline. It doesn't seem like the zoomer girls with these waists do that. Im at a 25 to 24 inch so its okay rn. Body weight excersize didn't have any effect on me so I gave that up.

No. 161015

>>161012
they obviously photoshop, I don't really understand what you're asking. If you want to look like you have no organs, you will have to edit your pictures because human bodies..have organs..

No. 161173

>>161012
anon, these zoomer girls you’re talking about are all editing their waistlines. a 24 inch waist is already trim & far below average. but reducing your overall bf% (by gaining muscle as the other anon suggested) is a good way to keep everything corseted in. try stomach vacuums and ballet beautiful (really improves your posture and gives you a lean physique).

>store fat normally
>normally
Gut fat is the way men store their fat. Fat storing in the thighs is the normal for healthy women. How the hell do you think a diabetes belly is more normal than thick thighs?
