I want to loss my weight

Recommended Posts

Cutting back on carbohydrates (which is just about everything that tastes good) is the best way to lose the rollers.  Like maybe one slice of bread instead of two.  Just a few chips instead of a bunch.  2 beers instead of 5.  etc.  Along with a 30-60 minute walk (or treadmill) 5 days a week you will be feeling good soon.

Beans are carbs. Broccoli is carbs. Think again. So many people want to sell simplistic solutions to a very complex problem.

It's not only about calories and simple math. Different foods are used very differently by the body. In other words calories consumed is not in any way the same thing as calories used.

Maybe I should have explained 'eat less' in more detail. It means whatever you are eating now eat less of it at each mealtime, + do more exercise. Then 'simple math' does rule.

See you added further edits as you normally do. Not interested in your further justifications, I repeat eat less means eat the same as you do now but less each meal. How the body deals with different types of food does not come into it then.

The old it's just simple math cliché is as dated as answering machines.

But the thing is it works.

A calorie is a unit of energy  There are different types of energy but a calorie is a calorie whether being consumed or expended.

Choosing what kinds of foods to eat and which not to eat or to  limit (and also portion control) is much more logical than counting calories. The old it's just simple math cliché is as dated as answering machines.

The thing is if you make it too complicated for people, they'll just say forget it.  The simplest advice is true:  burn more than you take in and you will lose weight.  I'll bet the OP doesn't exercise and just porks out at every meal.  He knows what he needs to do...but is hoping for a miracle cure that doesn't take too much effort.

Yes it would be the first step, but being determined to do it is more important.

Motivated...determined...what's the big difference?

I did this. I lost 45 kg in 16 months. (108 to 63 kg) I just want to add that the walking should be done at maximum speed, not just a leisurely stroll. Even though a stroll is better than sitting still.

Giving the heart a good workout is usually a good thing.  But, whether one sprints for 1 minute or leisurely strolls for 20, the calories "burned" are the same for the same distance.

Motivated is an 'idea', determined is the act of doing it until the 'idea' is fulfilled.

You totally missed my point.

One chocolate candy is a 30 minute walk.

From personal experience, I know it does work.

So do I. It's surprisingly easy once you get the hang of it.
