    Dont listen to the people that say you should go on X diet, just eat normal food. Dont bother counting carbs / fats.

    yea right, and after you do this, then go for the x diet...atkins and duncan diets are popular for a reason.
    The trick of selling a PvP-MMO is creating the illusion among gankers that they are respectable fighters while protecting them from respectable fights, as their less skilled half would be massacred and quit instead of “HTFU” as they claim.

    Because they're fads that offer quick results for easy effort?

    If the diet needs to have a special name and be marketed, there's a really good chance there's some bullshit attached to it.

    Losing weight is as simple as keeping your daily caloric intake below your weight maintenance requirements. There are no "fat burning foods", there is no combination of food that loses weight faster, and there is no specific diet tailor-made to help people lose weight better than anything else.

    Trust me, you can be hungry still and also gain weight with these kind of foods. The only thing viable is discipline. When I don't force myself to it, I can easily eat huge amounts of "healthy food" (vegetables etc) and gain weight with it, because its simply soooo much. Your stomach will be widened and you will get more hungry because hunger is an emotion sensed by the percentage of how much your stomach is filled.

    Most vegetables range around the 10-30 calorie level per piece. That's a ridiculous amount of food to gain weight with. Literally mounds of it.

    For those of you who don't know, I am one of the heavier members of MMO-C, I have struggled with my weight ever since 6th grade (currently a sophomore in college) and I really do put effort into losing weight. I want to lose weight so that maybe one day I can help someone else lose weight or get on track.

    I am 5'7 white, 21 years old and weigh about 375 pounds. I "try" to go to the gym everyday, though most of the time I get sidetracked with school or social life issues. I really don't play games anymore (this is why I gained all the weight I did, paired with eating out) and I try to keep myself pretty busy. Based off what I have told you, what advice could you give me?

    Here are some things I am doing or will be doing very shortly (in the next couple of days):

    -Gym every single day (1-2 hours, 85% time spent doing cardio)
    -No sugary drinks (water pretty much)
    -Portion control (eating when I have to, not when I want to)

    What are some other tips? Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: My diet includes everything that isn't healthy. Like even basic healthy thing I won't eat, not cause I'm a dumbass but rather because I'd throw up or starve to death if I was forced to eat them. Any kind of vegetables I won't eat, salads, fruits, etc. When I diet I do portion control and calorie counting. That is it.
    Well I recently started doing a diet (at the start I was something like 240lbs -- im 5'11 19yr old) -- and ive lost an absolute shit load of weight not even counting exercise, haven't had this weeks weigh in but last week I lost 12lbs -- the diet is called the south beach diet, trust me its very very hard, but extremely healthy and if you've got the balls to do it you'll be grateful in the long run.

    R.e. your healthy food aversion, then your going to stay fat mate i'm afraid.

    Your attitude to food needs to change, healthy food is not bland, boring or horrible. Learn to make decent things and you'll find they are far more tasty and filling than fatty, processed crap.

    If you wont each vegetables, fruit etc, then you are storing up massive health problems in your future. Which no amount of excercise will solve.
    Terrible advice. If he is going to the gym every day he should stick to cardio. Weightlifting without days off - you wont gain anything.

    They end or evolve like this one. Lots of (contradicting) suggestions.

    What helped me? Cutting carbs, alkohol and sugar (yes, of any kind, including fruit sugar and artificial sweeteners). (Lost 50 pounds, 25 kg). But one thing is sure: It isn't a one-off thing. The moment you go back to your old routine, you gain weight. I still have to be careful to indulge only in "once a week" binges where I treat myself to sweets or crisps.

    So, in short: the internet.

    you aren't going on a temporary diet when you are this overweight

    you're making a lifestyle change

    it's going to take a year or two to get where you want to be, depending on what you do

    Melee isn't awful for Challenge Modes; you are. Melee players are a liability for the windows of time in which a tank keeps an enemy mob faced towards them, resulting in an exorbitant loss of damage or death. Melee players are a liability for people who keep rooting mobs next to them. Melee are a liability to a healer that cannot heal.

    If you go on a low carb diet you'll lose mostly water weight, which you'll gain back when you eat carbs again.

    So if you're gonna eat a low carb diet, its gotta be for life.

    This is a lifestyle change, is not a fast diet for a month or 2...

    Then what are they supposed to do to lose weight if they don't have the time to work out?

    Exactly.

    Diets are there for a reason, and they do not simply mean cutting down on food. It just means that they are eating differently than what they are accustomed to which most of the time is unhealthy.

    I tried doing the Paleo diet like last year, so far it has really trimmed me down without any side-effects that other diets give out in the long term.

    Agree with this guy. Random brand name diets are stupid, just watch what you eat.

    I don't think it's physically possible to eat enough cabbage to gain weight.

    losing weight is 80% diet and 20% working out, i know im in shape. Plus if you want to lose weight doing 2 hours of cardio is a waste of your time. Go pick up a weight, sitting on a treadmill most likely will not work

    Well TECHNICALLY there is but its kind of a paradox, Celery is one of the foods that has TONS of nutrients as well as negative calories as it takes more calories to process then it provides. xP

    Celery, for instance, requires more calories to chew and digest than it provides to your system. Eat Celery for a snack. And if you are working out add some peanut butter for the protein.

    Just don't get into it to much, if you have other things to do besides put your complete focus into this project. Go slow and just start by eating healthy and not as much. Basically if you go into extremes you'll burnout and loose motivation when you hit a plateau, which you most likely will.


    And don't think about fat burning foods. Eat them because they're healthy. They can't be your energy source. You need money to make money, you need food to loose weight.

    Before doing anything I'd see a Doctor to make sure you lose it in a healthy way. Losing mass amounts of weight quickly can do damage to your body.

    Eat lot's of proteins, reduce the carbs as much as you.
    Make sure that your body burns more calories than you eat.

    http://www.muscleandstrength.com/too...alculator.html

    Calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate. Use the calculation to plan your daily calorie-intake. Let's say your result of the calculation is 3000 calories. Then you need to eat 3000 calories/day to maintain your current weight. Any less than that and you will lose weight, a higher intake will make you gain weight. So if you wanna lose weight I would recommend that you eat about 500 calories less than your balance(3000 calories) in this case. So we end up at 2 500 calories daily. This should make you lose weight at a steady and healthy rate.

    If you want 'extreme' weight loss then you'll have to reduce the calorie-intake by alot more.
    The less calories you eat, the faster your weight-loss will be. Please note that this is neither healthy or good in the long run. It can damage your body and make you lose alot of muscle-mass doing this. If you wanna take this route, be sure to atleast keep the protein-intake as high as possible so you can keep some of your muscles.
