      that's what he means by 'beating your own brain'. It's physically possible, it's just that you'll be miserable for quite literally the rest of your life as the price of doing it. Or at least, you'll be miserable so long as you're eating little enough and exercising often enough that you remain in shape.

        You don't even have to eat healthy, just less.

        You can't tell me that you've never once in your life skipped or even delayed a meal 3-4 hours because you were too entranced in a video game or something.

        Truth of the matter is your just bored and don't know how to deal with it.

          In other words, you have to be hungry. In perpetuity. That's the only way to eat few enough calories to be in the middle of the healthy weight range.
          >You can't tell me that you've never once in your life skipped or even delayed a meal 3-4 hours because you were too entranced in a video game or something.
          Oh, I certainly have. and then once I pull myself away from my game or whatever, I think, "holy hell, am I hungry". It's just like needing to piss, in a way, you can put off noticing it for a while, but once you aren't fully distracted anymore, you notice it immediately.

            If the portions and snacking just keeps you hungry, that is what fasting is for. Leaning into your own hunger so much that your body accepts it completely. It is not just your brain but your gut biome. The bacteria can greatly influence your cravings and even your mood. Eventually, the biome changes.

            If you are overweight, I am not saying you will never have to accept hunger to lose weight, because you will. However, I am saying that it gets better. Do you think thin people walk around in a constant state of miserable hunger? No, because they are not in the process of cannibalizing their own fat cells.

            Replace some meal(s) with oats. They're filling as fuck without being super caloric, and don't really take preparation (I eat them with milk but you can try something else).
            I'm a fatass and I lost weight ever since I started taking oats with a banana to work as my meal for the workday, instead of buying snacks or pastry or some unhealthy shit. If you feel like your serving of oats isn't enough to keep you sated for long, just add more oats. You're going to be full way before you reach a high calorie count with them.

        I literally just lost 5kg because I wanted to without suffering a little bit, I merely skipped lunch meals most of the days and my stomach didn't hurt, if you just play games and generally get really focused on any task for the day you'll forget you are hungry.

        this is just part of my yearly cycle now, eat a lot in winter and gain 5~10kilos to combat cold, feel energetic and so on, then lose everything in summer because heat doesn't make me hungry and there is no risk of disease so you can afford being a bit more in deficit of nutrients.

        If you seriously feel like coping a few months by not eating is worse than being fat for the rest of your life with all the health and social repercussions you'll get from it, you are very retarded.

        Maintaining weight isn't difficult unless you're being completely unreasonable for months

            Instead of skipping meals, try this:

            1. Delay your first meal as long as you can. I found it much, much easier than skipping/delaying lunch or dinner.

            2. Eat til you're completely full. Absolutely no snacking until your next meal.

            3. Once 5 hours have passed, repeat step 2.

            4. Gradually remove carbohydrates from your diet. Eat meat, full fat cheese, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits (don't overindulge in the sugary ones).

            Bonus step: Exercise.

            I didn't use this method to lose weight since I'm a naturally lean hard gainer, but it did solve my "unbearable hunger" problem. Even if I forget to eat after 5 hours, my stomach reminds me, with scary precision.

        You dont suffer at a proper deficit. It's braindead to eat 500 calories less than maintenance a day. Hell once you get to the weight you want, just eat at maintenance. When im not snacking on junk food, I struggle to hit my maintenance amount just because I'm too full

        You just have a bad relationship with food and use it as a coping mechanism for boredom

                because not everyone is the same, no matter how badly in denial the average ISTizen is about this fact

                >How are there any fit people if no one can control themselves?
                it's not that "no one can control themselves" it's that not everyone NEEDS to restrain themselves just to stay lean. some people are lean and they don't need to do anything to stay that way. some people can eat fuckloads of heavy food for months and still stay lean. but, once again, there are people who will deny this no matter what, because they want to believe that anyone (including themselves) can have whatever body type someone else has, as long as they stick to a certain autistic programme. yeah, good luck with that.

                This conversation is not about being skinny you fat landwhale tard. The person I was replying to claims that no one can control themselves. And because no one can control themselves, there is no point in a fat person every trying to get skinny because they will fail. But if the statement that no one can control themselves is true, how do fit people exist? Because it takes self control to work out and lift everyday. Therefore, since people can control themselves enough to work out everyday, the statement that it is impossible for fat people to control themselves is false.

    Stop buying junk and you won't have to use willpower/your brain to prevent you from eatting junk.

    Instead keep your place well stocked with healthy shit so you eat that when you are hungry.
    Unless you are going ultra lean that really is all there is to keeping a reasonable size without a ton of effort.

    If worse comes to worse and you really crave junk, then you have to make it from scratch, which due to the effort involved inherently limits how often you will do it if you already prone to lack of will.

    Recovering landwhale here. Weed helped me lose weight the most consistently so far, especially with aiding the pain and recovery from workouts. 40 pounds and going. It made me drop booze (my biggest calorie intake) and got me moving around and active more. It made it easier to fast and not require food out of boredom to enjoy an activity. The most weight I ever lost, however, was when I was peak depressed and barely left my room for five months and did nothing but read manga and draw. Lost 80 pounds. The big trick I found is you have to keep your mind and hands occupied on something engrossing for long periods of time. Ideally it isn't something that will lead to suicide attempts like my latter experience.

    This is why for some people working out could really help, even though diet is the most important. If you find you really enjoy it your mind will be on that more than food for pleasure so it's worth a try. Our brains were warped in adolescence by single mothers or lazy parents who used bad food as rewards and shortcuts. You basically have to rewire your mental system for rewards and pleasure, which sounds unlikely (it's certainly not easy), but it's possible.

    TLDR: you're bored and you need a healthy, engrossing distraction(s) to replace your need for food as a reward.

    P. S. do not lose weight for the sake of just women, and especially not just for sex. And especially if you're morbidly obese. You will be greatly disappointed when you find it's not necessarily all of what is holding you back, and even more upset when you find yourself turned into a saggy fleshman with much more work to do to look even remotely normal. You will also be disappointed when your woman leaves you and you have no more motivation to stay fit anymore if you do grab one.

    yeah its alot harder than people think
    i never had a problem with weight myself but i've struggled with sugar addiction which is similar to general food addiction. I used to eat so much sugar, literally 2 energy drinks, a bag of m&ms, & a bag of chips, sometimes more, every single day.

    >"lol just dont eat it, bro"
    you completely disregard the psychology of it when you think of it that way. Once you're used to consuming something every day for a long period of time your dopamine receptors adjust to the levels and so consuming it doesn't become about giving yourself a dopamine boost, but rather not experiencing a deficiency.
    Basically the moment you stop, you begin to feel like complete shit. Nothing that used to make you happy makes you happy anymore because your dopamine levels are so low. Watching anime / playing vidya / talking to friends / etc. all feels like watching paint dry. Life literally becomes so dull you wont believe it. When i tried to quit sugar cold turkey, i remember days where i'd literally just lay in bed staring at the ceiling for hours.
    After a few days you start to question why you even want to do it anymore, no matter how much motivation you had at the start, your mindset somehow completely changes, all the thoughts that used to motivate you, such as maybe getting fitter, getting a gf, becoming more social, getting a better life, etc. doesn't give give you that feeling of desire anymore, in fact you stop to care about it at all. At this point all you know is you feel like shit, life is dull & you are bored out of your mind, you have no desires but to start consuming again. Thats literally the only thing you "want" to do & that you know will make life not be dull again. Then theres always the thought of "i can always just try again tomorrow". Of course if you stick it out anyway you'll eventually get better, but its incredibly hard to tell yourself just to stick it out when in the moment you have 0 desire to even achieve it

      This pretty much. I dropped from 4xl to 2xl in a year and I didnt even count calories, just healthy swaps and using low cal choc sauce in my morning porridge at first when I needed a chocolate fix to gradually wean of it.
      Today I had a bit of a treat I must admit, I ate
      >Porridge with fruit
      >Chicken sausage sandwich with lettuce tomato and peppers
      >Hispanicy pepperami
      >Quavers knockoffs
      >A couple handfuls of salt popcorn

      >8 chicken nuggets and two sweet chilli wraps from Macdonalds
      And plenty of water, tea, coffee and diet soda (bit of a caffeine junky but I need a vice I guess).
      But I did some moderate exercise for over an hour. Just enough to build up a bit of sweat.
      Over time you just get used to it and you dont even miss the stuff you used to eat. You see it as a waste of time because you feel so good eating healthy.

        I've done other diets before. I yoyo it back on.
        But I dont see this as a diet. No. I see it as a lifestyle change. Fuel to further my training goals. That mindset allows you to then have the willpower to reject stuff you dont need.
        Like I reject spare food a lot now. I used to hate seeing food go to waste and just eat it, but these days I try my best to store leftovers if they are significant enough, eat them if its only a little bit and its something not so unhealthy, or I just bin or give it to someone else.

Sticking to 2-3 core activities to rotate between worked for me. Set some minimum requirements a week for these, including the exercise. Not a strict routine per se, but some routine is good for our monkey brains. In the wild we would do this shit necause its survival instinct.

    Kek all you need is 4 bananas. That's what I do, just 4 bananas and you lose wight, 4 bananas a day. Maybe you don't have what it takes to do that every day, but do it enough days and it works

          If you stop and go back to eating as normal, you will probably just gain all the weight back

            Eating normal does not and can not cause you to get fat. Eating like a disgusting fatass is the only way to get fat. Losing fat quickly then eating as normal will just make you maintain your weight, not gaining or losing.

              it does, and it can. when obese people eat 20 portions, that IS their normal, because THAT is what it takes to satisfy their appetite.

                That's not normal. They think it's normal but everyone else knows it is literal mental illness, laziness, lack of willpower, and moral failure that makes them think it's normal. Appetite is a fucking meme. Just ignore the hungies and it's not there. You are supposed to eat for energy and nutrition. Anything more is disgusting. If they'd just eat normal they would not be obese.

                completely and totally wrong. I can believe you would have such warped ideas about appetite. if you just ignore hunger and it disappears for you, that is an incredible privilege, and you need to understand that for other people, it doesn't work like that at all

    Just stop eating, or at least keep it to only one meal a day. Losing weight is the easiest thing in the world. It will happen even if you don't want it to just by accidentally going a couple hours not constantly thinking about food and forcefeeding.

    fat ass here, i used to eat like total ass and might have an eating condition, but im starting to finally lose weight, truth is, you dont need to go to the gym at all. if you do physical labour as work or just go on walks in your spare time thats more than enough. also just eat 3 times a day. i also find if you remain occupied you feel the need to eat less.

    literally nothing is forcing u to eat. just drink water

        but think about it, nothing is physically forcing you from eating,, thats how i go about literally anything. smoking etc. if im not forced to and im "addicted" i just stop, sure you might feel withdrawal symptoms but youre not being forced, your brain thinks you are

          that's not true. if you eat then you were forced, because every physical event which occurs in reality was physically necessary

                you can say "no" to your brain. willpower. it's hard, but saying your brain is "forcing" you to do something is simply not true at all. you have free will over your bodily desires.

                I am struggling with exactly what you are, bro. I understand how hard it is. I have lost 40 pounds in the past by simply letting myself be hungry, and having the willpower to stay within my caloric limits. drink warm water like tea or something, it helps with hunger, and distract yourself. just push through it, and it's completely worth it.

                I remember thinking at the end how amazing I felt, mentally and physically, to be so much lighter. And how glad I was that I stuck with it.

                M8 this isn't some fucking revelation. You're not some internet Jesus showing fat people how to not be fat.
                When it comes to the options in losing weight willpower is a low hanging fruit. It is also a fairly ineffective one. If it were effective we wouldn't have 100 people ITT debating this shit.
                I'm not saying being fat is a hopeless situation but it often requires more than just mental brute force.

                this is what i thought before i stopped making excuses for myself and just powered through it. a realization that some people find just absolutely terrible is that to get what you want, you often have to be uncomfortable, tired, because you're WORKING for something.

                that's why there's still fatasses out there. they don't want to be hungry, or uncomfortable. i'm not some weight loss jesus, just someone willing to actually be consistent, even when it gets very hard. consistency is literally the one thing you absolutely need to have in order to lose weight.

                I'm saying that a lot of people here don't have the mental strength to push trough it all. I certainly did not. I tried my best repeatedly over the years and nothing came of it. I was still giving in to temptation and that ruined my chances.
                Instead I approached things methodically and noticed how I came face to face with said temptations. Then I did my best to avoid them.
                Now I always eat alone, shop at the same store every week and have a predetermined route that keeps me away from all the junk food. Out of sight, out of mind. I don't have to waste my limited willpower on not eating junk food. I started doing this in March and so far I've lost 12kgs.

              Clearly you do not understand that it's more than just a decision.
              If you're a fat fuck that's been binge eating for a long period of time then the body changes accordingly. And I'm not talking about simply being fat. We're talking hormone receptors here.
              A certain hormone is released whenever you're full. If you eat plenty and often your hormone level is constantly high and stimulates the receptors in your brain constantly. Now the neurons don't like to be constantly stimulated so they remove some of these receptors. Because of the fewer receptors you need to eat more to feel as full as you did before.
              This is a biochemical process and it's quite similar to addiction so unless you're the kind of person that can stop drugging himself whenever you're not going to be able to break free easily.

    I was a skinny stick until I started working office jobs. The years of doing the wake up at 7am get home at 6pm really started to take its toll on me and I put on a lot of weight.

    Kinda realised physical jobs are much better than office jobs when it comes to keeping the weight off. Most people I meet in office jobs are fat or overweight

    Just don't eat as much you goon. The secret trick to losing weight is that if your caloric intake > caloric output, your body stores fat!! So you have to not have as many calories!!!!

    wrong. you have to manipulate your hormones. get your insulin down low enough that it allows stored body fats to be utilized for fuel. the 2 easiest ways to do that are to high fat moderate protein very low carbohydrate diet, and to practice intermittent fasting avoiding snacks and sugary drinks for significant periods of the day.
