Losing Weight is Hard

I'm 6'1 260 lbs tested at 27% bf. My sedentary TDEE is 2600 calories.

This means that if I cut on 2200 calories, I would only burn 2800 calories a week, which is not even good for 1lb of weight lost. To lose 2lbs/week, which is only a modest weight reduction, I would have to burn 4200 calories through additional exercise per week, of 600 calories per day. That's likely over 1hr of additional exercise.

That's intense, dude.

    You could lose 26lbs of pure fat and you would lose 0% muscle mass, just fast.

      That's why I'm not going hardcore with the weight loss. Aside from my paunch I've built a fairly decent physique for myself and I don't want to let go of it even a bit.

    Losing weight is easy.
    I'm 5'00, 240 lbs
    My sedentary tdee is 400calories
    This means if ai don't eat I can lose 1/5th of a pound of fat a day.
    That's almost a pound a week.
    I've been doing it for almost 4 months and I'm down 20lbs.
    Clearly physics is broken or something but goddamn I do not mind

    You understand that you constantly burn calories throughout the day and when you're sleeping, right?

    I'm 6'1, 210lbs, ~27% bf too. Sedentary TDEE estimated at 2250.
    I've started being in keto and calorie deficit (-750 daily) 2 weeks ago, when I was a 225lbs, but apparently that's too fast to be healthy (even though a good chunk of that must have been water), so I'm bumping my lifestyle from keto to hi-proteins/low-carb and my calorie deficit to -500.
    I'm eating some gross mix of cottage cheese and mixed berries I just made as I type this. It tastes like regrets and wasted berries, but I think I can finish it without barfing.
    Later, I'll try a suspicious chocolate-flavored protein drink. Can't be worse, can it.
    At some point, I'll add physical activity to the mix, but I'm giving myself the time to figure out the "calories in" bits first instead of trying too hard to get everything right at the same time.

    Anyway, it's an iterative process. I had no idea what would happen to my weight when I started, I just decided to track my food correctly and eat less. Maybe don't overthink it either and just start too.
    You can always course-correct later once you see how that goes.

    You’re gonna need to cut more, bro. I’m not sure what your daily diet looks like, but I’m sure there’s plenty of room to easily cut out more than 400 kcal. If you eat high-volume whole foods, you can cut with minimal hunger. It’s normal to be a bit hungry and it’ll get easier as your body adjusts. Download my fitness pal or some other calorie tracking app, put in your info, choose to lose 1 lb a week, and follow their calorie restriction.

    I used to weigh 300lbs at 5'10" so I had it way worse than you
    Legit, start with stretches and the like, just simple shit like mobility stretching as you're going to need it down the line and it's beneficial to everyone.
    I know it might sound dumb, but tai chi and other chink exercises are genuinely great and will have you feeling better and by the sheer amount of repetition, it burns calories. There's this one movement where you stand feet apart, arms parallel to the ground and you rotate and bend to touch a hand to the opposite ankle, just do 100 on each side, it feels easy but it uses muscles that don't really get used otherwise and doing it 100+ times will leave you sore in the morning. The whole movement opens up the hips, back and arms, and they have tons of things like this since it's for old people, which I'd say being fat is like being old in terms of phsyical ability.

    As far as deficits go, you literally just have to increase your expended calories, literally just go for walks. At your weight, 1 mile should be something like 80-100 calories, I walk about 5 miles 5 days a week, so that right there is 2500 calories burned. Throw in the stretching and dumbbell workouts i do an I'm easily burning at least a pound a week in exercise alone, I'm on a more severe calorie deficit than you too, which is the worst part. You're going to feel low energy because yes, your body is using more energy that it's taking in, more specifically, you're burning stored energy and not energy you're consuming, so it's natural and normal, deal with it.

    Just go for a 1 hour walk each day. Weight loss isn't difficult.

    Stop eating for a few months.

    >cut out sugar completely
    >no liquid calories
    >write down the calorie content of meals you frequently have
    >weigh yourself every two days
    I guarantee you will lose weight, this combination has worked for me massively because now I just keep a running counter in my head during the day of around how much I've eaten. When weighing yourself hold yourself accountable but don't cry over small fluctuations over a few days, we are gathering data and looking back at it over a week/fortnight. Don't try to overcomplicate things.

    bro eating 1600kcal a day is easy, and it would be a 1000kcal deficit for you. The hard part is doing it consinstently instead of slipping up every week

    • 1 month ago

      i do this and yeah it's super easy, 4 meals a day, 400 calories each meal. If you avoid high fat foods it's still filling and you wont be super hungry.

    >I would only burn 2800 calories a week,

    < 1 LB / week is fine ffs

    Try this: walk 5 miles every day. That's over 500 calories per day. Do that every day of the week and thats 3500 cal / week. Then, eat at a slight deficit (2000 calories is fricking fine according to you, you fat moron) and you will lose plenty of weight!

    I'm 6'3, started at 260 pounds, been losing weight eating about 1500kcal while also making noob gains liftan, but still only losing about 5/6 pounds a month.

    TDEE calculators tend to way overcalculate it. I have a similar TDEE as you and I can guarantee that if I eat 2200 I will not lose weight at all.

    Dude I ate 1200 calories for months, if you can't handle eating 2k calories a day idk what to tell you. I have to try to eat that much. Just OMAD

  19. 1 month ago

    Just do 1500kcal low carb OMAD (eggs, meat, dairy, fruit) by eating the same meal every day and by doing 1hour cardio 1-3 times a week for at least 6 months and you're good.
    It's literally that easy.

  20. 1 month ago

    Your fatass would probably only have to walk 90 minutes to hit that. 30 minute walk either before or after meals no big deal. I have to actually run to hit 500 out.

  21. 1 month ago

    You should be lifting weights, you can gain a lot of muscle while losing fat as a beginner.

    have you tried not stuffing your face all day?

    yea i am gonna go out on a limb and say you aren't 27% body fat

    • 1 month ago

      yea I was like 25% bodyfat at 190 pounds, no way OP could be 70 pounds of muscle/bone heavier than me without being an elite lifter

    • 1 month ago

      IDK, at same height, same %bf and 50 pounds lighter, I just assumed OP was fricken ripped under all that fat. Genetics or some shit.

  24. 1 month ago

    Just stop eating. I started 290 and 210 now. Lose between 10 to 15 pounds a month. Eat once a day. 1500 to 1800 calories. Skip eating one or two days a week. I don't even exercise.
