    Hi, Weight loss is not as easy as you think. It mostly depends on determination. My advice to you is to control your intake (food). I wanted to maintain my weight and I came across a website having more vital information. I think it will be useful to you. You can click the link for more insight. I Hope you will find your choice.

    Low carbs MAY works but... you still need fruits/vegetables and carbs from sources which aren't pasta or bread. The main issue is some high trans fat foods are tasty -- and any proteic food has tyrosine, a precursor of the serotonine ^^,
    No carbs, no simple sugars (from fruits) is indeed risky. And even that scaring cotton-soup O_O

    So starving is a no, refined sugars are a no, and vitamin deficiencies are a no. Easy solution: Replace junk food, like chips and candy, with healthier food such as nuts or fruits when possible, and exercise.

    My diet consist of oat meal with strawberries and blueberries and a fruit smoothie. For lunch I have a salad with lettuce zucchini cucomber rasberries and carrots and low fat hummos on the side. For dinner I have grilled chicken with grilled broccoli or if I want something different I eat 3/4 to A cup of brown rice chicken and some type of vegetable. I like to try to drink 5 to 8 cups of water a day. This is what works for me and it's mostly trial and error. You just have too keep going until you find your diet.

    I lost a lot of weight recently by only consuming a diverse dinner (not really holding back on portions), 2 pieces/servings of fruit, and a shit ton of water (6-10 bottles of 0.5 liter) every day, while also running 3-5 times a week. Worked really well, especially in the beginning (I lost probably 2 kilo's a week for the first month) and now it consistently maintains my lower weight.
    Don't know if it's truly a healthy diet, but it worked.

    You never brought up a plant based diet!! I was excited for that lol... I notice something inaccurate you pointed out tho. Maybe you could do a video on it??? Isolated sugar can make you gain weight (sugar, honey, fruit juices, ect) but fruit will not make you gain weight. Fruit has fibre and other nutrients that block the negative effects that sugar can have. So adding blueberries to your bowl of sugary cereal can help block some of the detrimental effects of the sugar in the cereal. Humans have very similar characteristics to a frugavor and are ment to thrive off sugar from whole fruits!!! Just like our relitives the chimpanzees and gorillas. There is no such this as eatting too much fruits and more fruit has shown to be helpful for diabetes as well as weight loss.

    I really don't understand why people take this so extreme and make healthy diet so complicated.
    If you want to loose weight, just do the obvious changes with your eating habits:
    quit any junk food, fatty stuff, deep-fried foods, all that nasty industrial processed and canned shit and start eating only healthy things. eat 3 meals a day, don't overfill your portions like it's the last time you'll ever eat, avoid anything too fatty, or any source of concentrated sugar like candy and white sugar (except for sweet fruits, vegetables, whole organic brown sugar, and honey), if you eat something that has high amounts of fat, NEVER eat anything related to saturated NOR trans fats (because once they're in your body, it becomes one with your body easily. solid fats are far harder to metabolize and break down and dispose out of your system), trim fats away from any red meat you might want to cook for yourself, avoid sauces, mayo, and generally anything with cholesterol over 10 per 100 grams (but i guess healthy home-made light sauces or salad dressings might be fine), instead of junk processed sauces - use lots of fancy seasonings, within reason of course (seasonings are made out of dried herbs and are quite healthy), such as: basil, oregano, marjoram, parsley, rosemary, thyme, dill, cinnamon, paprika, tumeric, ginger, saffron, cumin, etc.... Any store that sell seasonings have hundred different types of spices, buy like 100 grams of each say 10-15 varieties of seasonings that you might like by their smell and taste. Seasonings and herbs make foods far more delicious, healthy and nutritious. Cook your meals through easy healthy recipes like the legend Gordon Ramsey and Jamie Oliver make on their channels.

    No diet exists for weight loss, impossible!!!
    Overweight people are treated horribly and are desperate to appear more normal, which is why they spend billions every year in a futile effort to lose weight.
    Sensible eating of healthy foods and lots of walking are your best option.
    Our nutritional science is junk, remember the food pyramid? ??
    They had us eating unhealthy for 2 decades!!!

  • DancingCheese

    Look look look, if you want to loose fat, sugar is the enemy (especially sugars that don’t come from fruit) the liver will directly turn it into fat if you have too much, and considering sugar is addictive, that’s not a good idea. Sugar has been directly linked to heart disease and obesity, and “low-fat” foods *actually make you fatter.* When carbs are cut out of foods, it tastes bad, so it is replaced with sugar. If you want to loose weight, restrict your sugar intake and to God don’t listen to that “low fat” marketing bullshit. Eat as much bread and meat and such as you want, just maybe not that cake.
    Edit: Of course, this doesn’t really mean carbs and chips and such are necessarily good for you. It’s associated with unhealthiness because 1. The sugar industry wants your money and 2. A lot of high-carb foods don’t have many nutrients or even things that can be bad for you because of the sheer amount, like donuts with sugar coated in it or chips and pretzels with salt.

    Simple common sense, huh? I can attest to this approach: in December, 2016, I weighed 249 lbs.; in December, 2017, 211 lbs; on June 28, 2018, I weighed 188 lbs.
    A year out of high school ('69) I was at 258 lbs. and never looked back. The difference now? I have cut down on my calorie intake, pure and simple.
    My excellent brother Ray shared an image with me several years ago that made sense. He told me to make a fist and said that my stomach was actually about that size. If I eat more than that at any one time, I'm overeating.
    This was my epiphany. That easy truth provided me a path for portion control. When I'm hungry, I eat, whatever I want, until I feel full. The portions are now much abbreviated, and the quality of my diet has improved. I do not 'diet', what with the pointlessness of most. I just eat less.
    The weight loss has pleased my physician; my labs are all satisfactory. And did I mention I am close to ending my need for injecting insulin? Huh. Go figure!

    Here’s my average food plan
    Eat lots of proteins, eat good fats, avoid wheat, may eat starches every once in a while, eat organic, and ovoid dairy.
    Now dairy is okay every once in a while but yeah I usually eat food with things like this nuts, berries, vegetables, potatoes, avocados, spinach, salmon, chicken, beans, corn, and lots more food like this. And I usually eat meat once a day.
