Weight loss is easy

redpill me on why people struggle with losing weight? I was a fat slob last year and its practically all gone, 4 ish more months then I'll start seeing my abbs

>weightlift 3-4 days
>cardio 4 days
>IM fast
>high protein
>big calorie defecit(1400-1500 calories for nearly a year)

I literally went to the sticky last August, spent 10 mins reading and then I just started. The biggest issue by far has been resisting to snack at night but dude lmao just drink some water, 0 cal pepsi or just go to bed. I started with obese BMI, 3 months ago I entered normal BMI and in about 3-4 months ill be dead centre. I ate some tasty food, snacked and drank nice drinks, never felt like I was gona go crazy since Im eating shit.

The more fat I lose the less respect I have for fatsos. Are fatties just lazy retards? Why wasn't I a lazy retard?

      Why would I need to decrease the calories? 1400 was already too low for me anyways, pretty sure I can continue eating that much until I am literal skeleton.

        That wasn't the point you retard.
        You claim to have read the OP yet you can't grasp the fact that such a large caloric deficit would net you fast gains for a total of three months tops. Then your metabolism adapts to your new caloric intake and you plateau. Why do you think even professionals start with smaller deficits that they move each 2-3 months?

          that's not a thing retarded gay, metabolism only adapts to your current weight
          1400 is low and you can go pretty fucking low in weight before that becomes your maintenance

            there is some truth to your body adapting to your calorie intake (you may subconciously be less active and more efficient to burn less calories) but fatties use it as an excuse because they have no willpower to go on big deficits

    I'm not joking, modern society is plagued with things that supply the reward chemicals your brain wants to soak in, without any of the actual rewards.

    In a world of easy to access stimulation, actually achieving something is subconsciously seen as pointless in a lot of people, and that view is very hard to break. I'm talking fast food (hyperpalatable food) that supplies the loads fat and sugar that's rare to find in nature (that's why the brain rewards you finding them, but it's abundant here). I'm talking porn, and drugs. Plus we can also talk about socioeconomic factors, as cheap calories, poor living areas and whatnot.

    Basically, this society sucks, and that's why people are unhealthy.

        Thanks. The thing is with so much disinformation on the internet (and IRL), it's hard to know what's good and what's bad. The best advice I can give is to experiment with evidenced info (like the IST sticky), and to avoid heavily processed garbage (the GOYSLOP meme comes to mind).

        I mean, I'm pretty sure every food group on IST has been dismissed by one crowd or another at some point in time. Carbs, meat, supplements and others. I wonder if anyone has that post where an anon listed the things people on here say no to.

    Same here. Started as a skinny fat, stopped consuming bread, sugar and alcohol, ended up losing 15 kg in 3 months.

    They don't want to lose weight they want to weigh less, every single fatty knows to eat less, they just don't want to, they want instant weight loss to what they consider perfect weight for them

    Many people don't have the self-control, but yes, the principle is not hard at all. Lost 100 lbs myself too...

    That said, I wouldn't be so sure about those abs if you lost a lot of weight. At least my skin sucks hard and I'll never see them without a tummy tuck

    Is there any science behind a "set point"? I've been 235 lbs or so since early high school and despite losing or gaining weight either way over the years I always drift back to that mark

      your weight is just a reflection of your lifestyle, which consists of habits, which you drift back to

    some people have shitty genes.
    I was ok weight-wise (6ft 150lbs) for the first 28 years of my life, but I only ate during weekends and only drank coffee during week. When covid hit I started eating normally and got 50 lbs in six months. I lost 25lbs in the last few months, but I can't lose anything if I eat over 600 calories/day.
    I'm tired of fasting and I'm sad I'll have to keep fasting to keep my weight low afterwards. I can't live like this. I might end it all.

        More daily exertion. You're big you should be throwing your weight around with sports, hiking, and manual labor.

      600 calories/day is insane, you body is trying to stop your diet and you need to give it a reset by eating a maintenance for a few months, maybe even longer.

      key points for dieting:
      -diets should last 6-12 weeks, with 12 weeks already being a very serious+long diet.
      -aim to lose 0.5-1.0 percent of starting weight per week (2-4% per month)
      -don't attempt more than 10% total weight lost in one go, you need a maintenance phase to break up the diet into two smaller diets
      -maintenance phase lasts anywhere between 2/3 to 1.5 times the length of the diet phase

      You can start off trying a 1:1 ratio of diet weeks to maintenance weeks. If the 2nd diet goes poorly, then you know you need more maintenance than a 1:1 ratio.

      So you're 175lbs now? That's normal, if anything you should try to gain weight by eating more and lifting

        I'm too flabby, it's disgusting. Yeah, 175 now, but at what cost? Wish I could 2000 calories/day and keep the same weight but alas

          No offense but you must be pretty skinny or pretty lanky to weight 175lbs at 6'0 and still be flabby. Do you lift? I mean you are on IST?

          I'm 5'11 and 202lbs and I have a little fat though nothing particulary noticeable, but I also have a naturally stocky build and I lift.

            I was flabby even at 150lbs. at 200lbs I was extremely obese. I don't know what it is. It doesn't matter how much I lift, my body stays flat. I tried trianing 3 times a week, 6 times a week, nothing works. The fat won't go away.

            Fun fact: I came back to the office at 175 and all my coworkers asked me was: "how the fuck did you get so fat? you used to be so skinny!"
            Of course they didn't know I was flabby, but my chest always felt like jello.

    No you won't fatty. It is likelier that you'll gain weight in 4 months than to lose it. AND if you do hit your goal weight, you likely still won't see abs because you're underestimating how much blubber you got, fatty.

    Until you're not fat anymore just close your mouth.
