    I could definitely gorge on food if I wanted to, but I want to fit in nice clothes.

    Not a healthy way, but I set a goal for 800 calories a day, leaving 800 for snacking if I got the urge and lost 20 kg in 3 months. Got back to old habbits and havent gained anything .

    Stop taking anti-depressants, start reading parenting books written by your own gender, more effective long term. From there things will keep getting better in the long run with ups and downs in the short run.

    Telling someone to stop taking anti-depressents over the internet with absolutely no information on that individual is insane.

    Any advice would help i do like water but ive been drinking soda so long now its like i need flavour i.e sugar.
    Diet sodas and zero calorie stuff like Coke Zero are better if you have to have a soda. Another alternative I do is buy carbonated water and flavor enhancers like Mio, basically makes a soda.

    It's not for everyone, but for coffee and tea I forced myself to make a permanent switch to liquid stevia extract (the powdered stuff is mixed with other zero calorie sweeteners) after while I completely stopped noticing the aftertaste people complain about. Alternatives are Monk Fruit extract or Allulose (if you can find it) for ways to sweeten things that are a bit better than classic artificial sweeteners. Note that anything other than straight sugar is simply going to be more expensive.

    guess how many people survived millions of years without anti-depressants?, after 20 years on them I know that they are a cage and nothing more than a different kind of pain killer. I got off them by learning about having a family and that helps the mind know that you are going in the right direction. Your mind tortures you because it knows you are either going nowhere or going in the wrong direction. I thought about suicide for years before Anti-depressants and thought they were wonderful for a while as I became a social butterfly but the weight gain, loss of motivation and directionless existence eventually made me realize that I was still just sliding into the darkness with more apathy.

    Man, that is so fuckin' dope!
    But thinking you are above licensed physicians, and not only that, being able to diagnose if someone should or shouldn't be on anti-depressants, from a brief and meningless interaction online, is absolutely insane.

    People overcomplicate things, want to lose weight? simple, you don't need intermediate fasting, you don't need keto, vegan or other bullshit, just be in a healthy calorie deficit aka 300-500 less kcal, eat high-density foods that cover all the nutrients and micronutrients your body need, stop drinking soda( even zero, that is a huge craving trigger) and increase your activity (weight training barely burn calories) like steady state cardio, don't overcomplicate things with all the fads and other bullshit stars or influencers do and more important DON'T HAVE CHEAT MEALS, yes The rock has it, you are not the rock, focus on a plan and push it, no excuse, a year have 365 days, you will fuck it up with binging few times, don't panic and keep grinding

    This it it, in a nutshell.

    Just keep it simple.

    Had a really fat friend that just altered the moments she ate and made them more regular.
    She didn't eat any less but she did start to lose weight.

    I've no experience with fatness myself, my gut's fucked and my brain is permanently overactive so my intake is naturally constrained while my baseline fuel consumption is heightened.
    Honestly i'd much prefer to be fat above the more directly debilitating health issues.

    But yeah: health issues, also a great way to lose weight.
    This is a signature of an ailing giant, boundless in pride, wit and strength.
    Yet also as humble as health and humor permit.

    Furthermore, I consider that Carthage Slam must be destroyed.

    If there are health issues eating can be problematic when you're stuck to eating only certain foods. Protein for example can really get the belly going...but if you've a digestion issue you might not be able to eat meat and dairy which are sources of protein. But you can eat as much of celery and bean sprouts.

    Either visit a doctor to get help medically. Or eat more, whatever you can eat, eat it and increase volume as well as add in calorie dense foods that is easily digested.

    That doesn't solve the health issues, also it does not work as most just leaves again undigested.

    I have literally eaten chocolate per kilogram, beef, carbs, whatever as well.

    Eating more simply does not work in such a situation, as amazing as it might seem to a fatty.

    What is that health issue then?

    If your goal is to gain weight, then eat more to gain weight. If your problem is something very complex, then talk to doctors because that is very odd and will require special and individual care.

    Shut your novice ass up and try be a little more specific

    I am in the talks with doctors, it is as of yet not entirely clear.

    Alas modern medicine is very limited in what it can fix or even identify, so presently my spleen randomly swells and crushes my upper guts and stomache, additionally it causes my gall bladder and liver to malfunction which stops any sort of fat from being digested which clogs up the gut as a tar-like substance.

    So yeah, the living testament that eating more simply will not work for some, perhaps even many; people are simply not so uniform when you get down to such details.

    That isn't true whatsoever. It really is that simple.

    Best way to lose weight is avoid diets. You want to eat a protein packed meal in the morning and a decent sized lunch. Dinner should be your smallest meal. You also want to eat small snacks through out the day and drink lots of water. I drink an 8oz glass of water before and after every time i eat something. Your snacks in between meals should again be protein based. I eat at my office a lot and usually buy all the office food from Costco so my breakfast is (2) egg bites and a cup of grapefruit. First snack is typically a handful of mixed nuts and a piece of beef jerky. Lunch is one of the SW chicken salad kits with only half the dressing. Second snack is guacamole cup with some multi grain chips. Dinner is lean protein typically with veggies of some kind. I also try to eat (3) salads as dinner per week. On top of that I hit my exercise bike for 30 minutes per day and do low weight high reps on weights doing upper body, lower body then core then upper and lower body again. Work out takes about 45 minutes to complete and I am usually very fatigued by the end again due to high reps. I go to bed by 9PM and I wake up at 5AM. Good sleep is key for healthy body so it can repair and recover. Cut out as much processed food as you can, switch simple carbs light white rice and bread up for complex carbs like wild/brown rice and mutli grain bread. Really try and stay away from bread. Try to eat dinner as early as possible and if your hungry after your work out eat a banana with some organic PB or something like that. If you love ice cream switch to sorbe or frozen yogurt and try to limit that to smaller helpings. Take your plate also and sub out your standard large dinner plate for a smaller plate and once you eat drinking a large 16oz glass of water and do not go back for seconds for at least 20 minutes. Also last comment, sit down at a dinner table with electronics off when you eat, this will help avoid over eating.
