I just can’t lose weight and it’s getting bad nowWatch
I’m ngl I’m very overweight(obese), I’m 17, and it’s ruining my health, I can’t wear clothes that I want to, like jeans, I can’t even play sports properly, I guess I love food too much, how can I get over this and lose weight, I’ve been trying to for so long but I can never do it
Start out small because big changes can cause you to lose weight and go back after a while.
Maybe first you could set out just one day a week where you aren't allowed any junk food. You could also set a day where you go on a brisk walk or a cycle. Then you slowly increase overtime. So in a few months maybe you only eat junk food one day a week and walk/run regularly.
I was also obese but 6 weeks ago I started going swimming every day. I've lost 14lbs. Sometimes after work I feel too tired to swim and just want to chill out in front of the tv - that is where mentality comes in. I want to lose weight so I need to force myself to work out - and it works. But you gotta want it.
And by that I mean they don't love food in all the wonderful varieties it comes in. They tend to love only a rather limited range of foods - that tend to have high calorie densities.
So that for example, if you present an overweight person with a meal made from chick peas and black eyed beans with a cabbage, carrot, apple, red seedless grape, rocket and mint salad plus some lightly roasted cashews, almonds, pistachios plus some mushrooms cooked with garlic and more often than not they will turn their noses up at it.
As part of your lifestyle aim to eat loads more fresh fruit, veggies, leaves, herbs, seeds etc. Eat as much of this stuff as you can. Stuff your face with it. This should lead to you eating less pizza, chicken nuggets, chips, burgers, meat, etc etc
As a result you should start losing weight when combined with an increase in exercise to the tune of an additional 30 minutes per week where you get puffed and your pulse is racing.
Don't expect miracles overnight. A loss of 0.5 kgs per week is fine.
The aim is to lose weight whilst having more reserves of strength and energy and whilst feeling better in yourself and having no side effects. Apart from maybe some more wind. And with this lifestyle change you should avoid yo-yoing.
Obviously just to break it in that you are trying to lose weight not that what i am suggesting is healthy. As a disclaimer.
