    Sorry who studies media?

    Eh you can still study media and be intelligent. You just have to go out of your way to learn and understand this stuff since media students won't learn it in an academic environment.

    Nope not seen it. I try to stay away from that side of youtube, it makes me unreasonably angry. Haha
    It is irritating, I agree. All her followers just piss me off.

    Also I must say that diet is hardly sustainable for the average person, mostly because it's also ridiculously expensive. 5 boxes of bananas, 10 boxed of dates? Oh please...

    Ah no, the thing is if you eat 'healthy' high carb low fat you cant gain weight even if you over at because carbs do not get converted into fat(which is the fat on your body) and also its hard to eat more than 5000 calories on this lifestyle; if your confused as even 5000 seems a lot ithink you should watch drewlikesrice or smthing
    Carbs in excess go to fat. They don't vanish

    Because unlike you I actually try to understand the human body, I study it at university and actually know what I am talking about.

    People like you however spread misinformation and dangerous and unhealthy diets which actually cause harm, and anyone who says they didn't do well on these ridiculous diets just gets blasted and insulted by people like you and freelee and all those other toxic morons.

    You, frankly, should be ashamed of yourself.

    Pls post if you feel the same & tips for staying motivated on healthier lifestyle
    People post all kinds of crap in these sort of threads (and would appear to have done so again) so I'll try and give some information without the nonsense.

    Firstly, avoid fad diets. Whilst plenty of them will help you lose weight, they are not a good way to go about it, Two problems. Firstly, they aren't healthy. They normally involve cutting out food groups, or fasting, or some other rubbish. These are not particularly good for you. Secondly, and more importantly, they aren't sustainable. Sure, you'll lose a couple stone in 6 months or some such. Great! But then, almost invariably, you'll fall back on old habits and the weight comes straight back. If it isn't sustainable, it isn't a long-term solution.

    So, in terms of how to manage your diet. Make some kind of measurement (a rough measurement is fine) of how many calories you're taking in. Losing weight is pretty simple really. You simply need to be using up more calories than you're taking in. If you're a guy then the average calorific requirement is about 2500, if you're a girl then it's about 2000 (I think). This varies depending on your activity level, there're calculators online to tell you your calorific requirement. Then, to start with, just subtract 300-400 calories from this, and that should be your daily intake. You can increase this as you get more comfortable with eating less (I'm cutting at the moment, and I'm about 500 calories below my requirement).

    In terms of what you eat, strictly it doesn't matter. If you're taking in less calories than you're using, you'll lose weight. However, if you're eating less, in order to meet all your other dietary requirements you'll want to stick to healthier options. Typically, I'd recommend sticking predominantly to white meat and fish, lots of fruit and veg, and something like weetabix or porridge for breakfast. I find it's easier to stick to this kind of plan if I have a cheat day, where I'll loosen up on the dietary rules.

    Also, add some exercise into the mix! Some form of cardio would be the way to go. Start off taking it easy. Go for a 20 minute run, cycle for an hour, something along those lines. No more than twice a week to begin with, then start to increase it as you feel comfortable.

    That would be the most basic advice I could give you. Good luck!

    Im not blasting, it is healthy and i have seen it work for a lot of people but the thing you vain people can't see while you call us disgusting etc etc is that we are doing it for the animals... i only started talking about carbs because this is a health thread.

    The animal industry is a corruptive place of and i dont see how people can be putting corpses in their bodys and calling it healthy

    1) I never called you disgusting.

    2) You very clearly are, have you even read what you are writing and saying?

    3) I have nothing against vegans, and I think veganism is a good cause. But what you have said in this thread has been completely factually incorrect nonsense and out right lies.

    So like I said, please educate yourself. Learn the metabolic pathways and then come back here and claim carbs can't be stores as fat with a straight face. Bet you can't, because you'll realise what a complete fool you have made of yourself through this entire thread.

    We're omnivores lol. By definition, that means we eat meat as part of a healthy diet. You can object to the slaughter of animals for food on moral grounds - I'd disagree, but accept your point of view - but don't tell people **** like eating meat is unhealthy. People are looking for actual advice, not this kind of rubbish.

    What kind of stuff do you eat for your meals or snacks? Just looking for ideas and you seem to know what you are talking about.

    I actually recently have been eating quite poorly, I had several bouts of being ill and recently can't stomach many foods.

    But typical meals for me:

    -chilli con (or sin) carne
    - stir fry
    - kipper fillets with sweet potato chips (or cous cous)
    -stuffed peppers and mushrooms
    -baked potato with various toppings


    I don't tend to snack very much if I'm eating properly, I prefer to eat 2 big meals per day. That's just how I feel best, but other people might not get on well with that.

    haha, I see it as hopefully nipping it in the bud.
    By saying my bit I hope I inform them of the facts behind it before some confused and poor soul who doesn't understand gets a message from someone like Veganavb and ends up incredibly unhealthy, fat and with diabetes from eat nothing but carbohydrates in a massive calorie excess from following her complete uneducated nonsense..

    Who would you recommend?
    Nikki Blackketter. I'm a guy and I watch her videos but she's probably the most popular for girls. I think lots of people can relate to her and she's got one of the best physiques you'll see.

    Christian Guzman is another one, but I think its mostly guys who watch his videos. CG and Nikki used to be together but the recently split up.

    Since you are more educated, can you explain why vegetarians and vegans live longer than meat eaters? Or is that nonsense too? Is it also not true that meat is directly linked with a number of issues including heart disease, high cholesterol, cancer etc?
    I have heard it suggested that as a population, there are more likely to be more health conscious individuals among vegans/vegetarians than the general population.
