                Ah, I see. So eating large quantities of food at any time is bulimia. I guess I’m bulimic then, and I suspect most of this board and in fact most of the 1st world is. Good job anon, you’ve discovered we’re all bulimics, and I’m really hoping this is just moronic b8 because anyone who is genuinely this moronic would make me very sad.

      as an old man, 36, I've seen it with my peers. Most start to get fat in their early 20s, I'd say for most people 22 is the last age where they actually look good. every year they'll maybe put on 5-7lbs and not really notice it, and then they're full blown lardos by the time they're 30. then they act as if it's all because of their age and ignore the fact they spent their whole 20s boozing, eating shit and not working out

      And then once they're fat, they struggle to get un-fat because they've built up a lifetime of bad habits which are hard to break, and they also expect to be able to shed 15 years of fat gain in a fricking month at the gym

      It does, but people put waaay to much stock into it. It's really not a significant amount. From 20-30 it's maybe 10 calories a day different. It's basically one more calorie a year after 30. That means even at 50 years old you burn maybe 40 calories less in a day than at 20. That is not difficult to overcome.

    the notion that your metabolism slows as you age is a myth. in part its because people tend to exercise much less in their old age; but also because it's much easier to gain fat than to lose it, so over time everyone who doesn't regulate themselves will tend towards being overweight

    it's not. staying thin as a child and staying thin as an adult takes about the same effort.
    the difference is that once you're an adult, you get to decide about your diet by yourself, there are no longer any parents around who'll tell you "no" when you want to eat the whole bag of chips.
    people getting fatter as they get older is just the natural progression of their lack of discipline.

    Your metabolism slow down

    But it's not hard at all. You just can't gorge on massive amounts of food as when you were young

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      the slowdown is so fricking small, you can easily compensate for it by just eating ever so slightly less
      it's not like you go from 3000 TDEE to 1500 TDEE
      IIRC, it's like 1% per decade or something, starting at 20. By the time you turn 100, your metabolism has only slowed down by some 8%.

      This is true. When I was teen/very early 20s I used to eat a lot more than I do now but only weighed around 60kg at 5'9", I eat less now and hover around 80kg. And I have genuinely always weighed my food and tracked my macros, so I'm not just thinking I ate more then

      Not that I'm complaining anyway, gains are easier and faster to make, groceries are fricking expensive so I'm happy to maintain my weight on less food. Slower metabolism makes it easier to pack on the guns. Back then my 1rm bench was fricking 1.5pl8 and now I do 2.5pl8

          I know this is going to sound crazy, but maybe you could… eat lesser amounts of food to compensate for your decreased physical activity?

    >tfw 125 since I was 16
    I legitimately have not gained weight. I'm just now going to the gym at 30 because I'm tired of looking like a kid.

    It is not. It's just people getting lazy. I'm 37 and have never ever been fat. I workout the same as when I was 27. People in the west are just lazy fat fricks.
