What to eat
You don't have to eat these foods to diet or lose weight. There are plenty of other healthy foods.

making progress!
It seems like you are really motivated, good work!

protein
Tuna has a ton of protein and is extremely low calorie and almost no fat. Try canned tuna-like I said-the only macro it contributes to is really protein unless you add stuff to it.

New Member... Any fat burning food ideas?
There are also "negative calorie foods" as some people call them-foods where your body burns more calories digesting them then they actually contain-those are always good and may actually be helpful to eat. And drink lots of water. Either 64oz. per day, or, if you are severely overweight, then you should be drinking half your bodyweight in ounces of water each day. Good luck!

High fiber foods might help-they clean out your system and aid in digestion

Should you weigh yourself with or without clothes?
In my case. I wear the EXACT same clothes each time. After I use the bathroom, first thing in the morning before I eat or drink. I do take my jewelry off :)

Staying Motivated After The First Week
You hit the nail on the head, Steven. I think spacey just likes to argue. I'm done giving the time of day.

Staying Motivated After The First Week
There is no RIGHT or WRONG way to lose weight. It's what works for the individual as long as it doesn't cause problems for them.

Staying Motivated After The First Week
ok. but it's what works for the individual. you just said it, just because it may not be the exact best way...well...more power to ya'. I mean, it's like IF, for example. People don't eat for a day, eat the next day, etc...it works for some people, others wouldn't be able to do itThe people that can't or won't do IF do other programs to lose weight that wouldn't work for the IF'ers. Like LCHF/Atkins. Or CICO, or Southbeach...etc.

Stagnation
Basically eat at least 800-1000 calories MINIMUM and of the proper food groups. 5-6 servings of fresh fruits and veggies, proteins, and stay active! You don't have to eat ANYTHING unhealthy, but you are not going to lose if you eat 400 calories because your body will hold onto each calorie you give it because it doesn't know when the next time you are going to feed it is.

Low carb question
Erika said it pretty well, and I do a version of low carb, but I hang around 40-50 net g like you do, and it's a slow loss of about 1 pound per week. I also tend to get more protein than fat, and know that's backwards, but I can't seem to train myself to eat fatty foods! LOL Good luck, Clayboro!

Staying Motivated After The First Week
Everybody has preferences, believe it or not. Things that work for them. Maybe I feel more confident doing a water fast after eating pizza. I may only eat those 2 or 3 slices once every month, and that's my choice. I lose slowly, but I'm still losing.
by XshapeshiftX (submitted 2 years ago)
Staying Motivated After The First Week
I, myself try not to let myself have "cheat days" any more often that once per month because then I fins myself getting discouraged, like "It's going to take me so long to work off the calories I ate today, so let me just keep eating this way, who cares?" Usually the last Saturday of the month I'll eat something like pizza or Chinese, something I love to order out. I'll get something just big enough to satisfy me, and do it early, around lunchtime. The day after, I'll do a water fast. I'm glad you found something that works for you!

Your 'Actual' Weight...
:d I'm glad you got to that point, spacey, but not everybody has, and maybe they won't. I don't know if you have read my bio, but I've have weight issues from before I hit 10 years old- first overweight (I was 160 pounds at 10 years old) and then too skinny (86 pounds at 13 years old, and diagnosed with anorexia nervosa). So, you can say I've been obsessed with the scale my entire life.:( I no longer have any type of active eating disorder, and everyday I try my best to eat healthy and stay balanced with good food and exercise regimen, but the numbers are something I can't put down. I have to know what I am getting into for the day. Whatever number I see that morning sets the pace for the day! Whether it makes sense to anyone else, I don't really care. That's me.

Your 'Actual' Weight...
[quote=spacey48]weight once you reach a point is largely irrelevant, [/quote] And for each person that point is different. We all weigh ourselves, even those that DO USE tape measures and DO measure their bf. All the numbers matter. I can't help my morning routine: wake up, pee, get on the scale, drink water, shower, get dressed, go.

Your 'Actual' Weight...
You know how when you (for example) have to do a cleanout for a colonoscopy and afterwards say "I must have just lost 5 pounds"? Well, afterwards, you very well might have. So that weight is your 'actual' weight, right? The weight you carry around that is stool inside you doesn't really count, right? Because it's not fat...? So if you weigh yourself in the morning and get one number, and then move your bowels, and weigh yourself again and weigh, say, .75 pound less, you can take the smaller number, right?

having a hard time
Did I miss something? What was deleted off of here? I believe I might only be seeing half of a conversation? In any case, I always found it hard to break out of the low fat WOE because it always made more sense to me: if you don't eat the fat you won't gain the fat. Simply put. As I explored the internet more, this site, talked to people at the gym and at work who are dieting-it's true-you need to eat fat to burn fat. Every single person I (only me) have talked to who follows LCHF/Atkins has lost weight fast, myself included.

[quote=Halo Kiwi]diets are just fads and don't work, and I am not one of the 'trolls' you talk about [/quote]I never said you were
by XshapeshiftX (submitted 2 years ago)

Yes, what your body does is burns carbs before it goes on to burn fat. If you don't take in carbs (a lot of carbs) then it will go straight on to burn the fat. You need to eat the fat to burn the fat. There is a diet called LCHF (low carb high fat) if what I just said is hard to understand, look up details of that particular diet on google. I will warn you that there are trolls on this site that will try and talk you out of this diet, even though it works. You have to try it and decide for yourself, talk to people that are on it and hear their experiences. You will often lose weight sometimes as fast as 1 pounds per day at first. ;)

Weight Gain?
Maybe switch it up a bit. There are different things to do. Have a off keto day, Eat high calories, and then later do some fasting.

More Fast Food My Way
Me too. The competition shows are fun, but I miss the days when Food Network was mostly instructional. But I no longer have cable and there's plenty on YouTube so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
