I came across this video talking about how exercise really doesn't help weight loss much at all and it really does come down to calories in and calories out. Based on my own personal experience with losing weight I'd have to agree. That's not to say that people shouldn't exercise. Exercise is still really important and we should do it to stay healthy (and god knows I certainly don't do it enough) but I thought I'd post this since it's such an interesting video.
I just came across this article about a weight loss "pill" that is actually a small balloon. Basically you swallow it and a doctor inflates it and it's supposed to take up room in your stomach so you don't eat as much. I guess it's probably safer and less invasive than gastric bypass surgery.
What helps you stay on track losing weight or maintaining your weight? Do you keep a food diary, do you make it a point to work out every day no matter what? Do you reward yourself with a new lipstick or some other non-food reward? Personally, I use a food diary to help me remember how much I've already eaten and how many calories I've consumed so that I don't go over my limit.
I think that if you’re trying to lose weight for the long term, whichever approach you take, it should be maintainable - I want to be able to eat carbs and don’t like the idea of taking pills/ supplements for the rest of my life! Realistic for me is baby steps – I’ve started by cutting the wasted sugar out of my diet, like the sugar in my coffee and home cooking and I feel great! I’ve been using a low cal sweetener (Natvia) which I found in the supermarket and it’s pretty good. I found cuttin...
So you guys have probably heard all about low carb diets (and based on my own personal experience, I think they work) but I came across this article today about identical twins that did an experiment where both of them were allowed to eat as much as they wanted (no calorie restriction) but one was on an extremely low carb diet and the other was on an extremely low fat diet.
Have you heard of the HCG diet? If so, what do you think of it? Do you think it hasn't been approved by the FDA because it really isn't safe or do you believe they just won't approve it because it would ruin the weight loss industry?
As much as I recall I have been always overweight, and now I really think I am the heaviest I've ever been. All of it started after I stop playing sports in my high school, and I started working in a fast food restaurant. Cause of working very long hours I started eating in the wrong way, and I rarely exercised. But right now I feel like my time of change came, and I really want to get rid of body fat once and for all. You might ask me what things motivated me? Well, nothing much. It is just...
What kind of diet advice has worked for you? Does using smaller plates help? What about eating smaller meals every day instead of 3 main meals? Anything that has worked for you goes!
Are you overweight or have you even been overweight in the past? If so, what inspired (or inspires) you to get healthy? For me it was because I used to work as an EMT and I witnessed first hand what being overweight can do to a person. I saw so many people dying from heart disease, diabeties, etc. that I realized if I didn't make a change I would end up like that too.
Are there any healthy foods that you just absolutely can't stand? I have trouble eating any kind of salad, not because I just don't like it, but because it honestly makes me feel sick to my stomach. Do you have any foods that you just can't stand to eat?
