  • Jesus Christ I don't want to be a dick, but why?

    Why can't you get your fat ass on a treadmill or something? Why can't you go for a run once in a while ? Why can't you diet and cut down on the calories?

    Why do you have to resort to garcinea and apple cider vinegar pills ?

  • Do not rely on supplements and gimmicks. You are wasting your time and money. At the end of the day all that matters is:

    Energy in vs energy out. Your body has to be burning more calories than what you fuel it with. This does not mean you have to exercise like crazy in order to burn more. You can simply eliminate hundreds of calories with diet alone. Exercise and diet go hand in hand so combine them both for maximum fat burning.

    Your body burns calories even when you are not doing anything. These calories are used for bodily functions such as breathing, pumping blood and digesting food.

    This is called Basal metabolic rate (BMR)- My BMR is roughly 1900 calories. You can find an estimate with a BMR calculator online.

    The amount of energy your body needs to perform basic bodily functions is your BMR. Imagine you are just laying in bed in a comatose state.

    A rough estimate of the energy (calories) used walking, talking, working ect in an average day comes to around 500 calories. You add this estimate to your BMR and you get a another figure : Maintenance. Mine being roughly 2400-2500 a day.

    Your maintenance is the amount of calories required to neither gain nor lose weight.

    So, in order to lose weight, you will need to be eating at a calorie deficit. A deficit is just a reduction of your daily intake. Using the 2400 figure for maintenance, we reduce this number by 500. We are now in a caloric deficit and will lose roughly 1 pound if we are able to keep doing this for a week.

    3500 calories are in 1 pound of fat So by reducing our intake by 500 we can aim to effectively lose a pound per week.
    500 x 7 = 3500.

    For faster weight loss (and the recommended maximum amount) we can reduce our intake by a further 500 calories leaving us with just 1400-1500 calories a day effectively shedding 2 pounds per week.

    There is no such thing as a slow metabolism or "starvation mode", the state in which your body holds onto fat because you are starving it, ultimately hindering weight loss. The fact of the matter is that it all depends on what goes in vs what goes out. There is however evidence that shows that the metabolism is adaptive, and weight loss can slow down eventually, but as long as you are in a constant deficit, you will be always losing weight. In contrast to this, as you lose weight, Your BMR will be less, meaning the amount of calories required to fuel your body will reduce over time. It is advised to recalculate your BMR after significant weight loss so one can alter their diet in response to their decreased BMR.

    Exercise alone can make it difficult to shed the pounds, but in conjunction with a good calorie reduced diet you can be well on your way to losing weight. Willpower and determination will yield the desired results.

    With this information (everything i have learned over the course of my weight loss journey) I hope you are now well equipped to shed those pounds.

    Food scales are your best friend and also a good calorie counter is a must. I recommend My Fitness Pal.

  • I got daily exercise and a healthy diet into my daily routine. Took a few months but I lost fifty pounds. Never cared for that chemical shit.For me anything with vinegar (even in a pill) would make me vomit.

  • If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. I wouldn't fall for any of those "lose weight fast" gimmicks.
