    I guess the best 'diet' is doing sports and try not to eat too much sugar and fats, a bit less than you burn but just a bit?

    • Logbia7k
      Logbia7k Day ago

      That's true. But sports is still optional and only effective if you don't snack unhealthy before or afterwards.

    My close friend lastly confided in me exactly how she dropped most of her unwanted fat and it has been by using the “Yamzοkο Weebly” (Google it).

  • Lost Boi
    Lost Boi Month ago

    Eat mostly vegetables, small amount of meat, small amount of fruit, very small amount of refined sugar products, do plentiful low impact exercise like walking, get plenty of rest, drink almost only water, periodic stretching exercises is a plus if you feel like it. Definitely do not smoke. If you drink then only 1 on special occasion. This is all it takes to live a long life and still feel good when your old. This is what we were designed to do but nobody does it. No diet required, it's just the way to live your life. Once I gradually changed over to this and kept it, I lost 50 pounds over about 3 years and many health problems just remedied themselves.

      @Logbia7k good luck

    • Logbia7k
      Logbia7k Month ago

      @Lost Boi Yes ;) You can in theory. But in practice... people don't eat that much vegetables and fruit. You need 70 grams of fat and 90 grams of suger each day. That means you need to eat ~7 bananas each day to get the suger and you need to eat 2 medium sized advocados to get that. ;) If you do that, fine by me. But it just doesn't apply for most people in their average life. They mostly need ~ 1 or 2 bananas each day and ~a portion advocado. And the rest they get from unhealthy stuff.

    • Lost Boi

    • Logbia7k

      Surely not healthy. You need fat and suger to feel and get energy throughout the day. So only vegetables is a really bad idea.

They give me plenty of energy and also suppress my desire for foods, however I don`t quit whenever they wear off which I enjoy, and they don`t make me jittery. I have not changed other things I`m doing and also have shed 7 pounds. .

  • Erick Sanchez

    Since you're on this video... you should really look into a "plant-based" diet, specifically a whole-foods pb diet, considered a "vegan" diet. It has shown to and can treat, prevent or even reverse chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other things like asthma, erectile dysfunction and even certain allergies, the list just goes on and on; it can extend your lifespan by several years. It's a truly amazing thing and has helped thousands of people already. It's also all backed up with (real) science, some that has existed for decades and some that continues to come out, all showing that animal product consumption is not healthy for us and a plant-based diet is optimal.
    P.S. Yes, you can get protein from plants. Guess where the protein in animals we eat comes from. (plants!)

    Most people seem to use diets as a way to get slim and lose weight to get the “perfect” body. You don’t necessarily need to be thin to be healthy. We should alter our diets to get proper nutrition not to look a certain way. The bodies we have are the bodies we’ll have forever. It’s important that we learn to love them the way they are.

They actually found out, the only this they did to gain weight was eat rice. And even then they ate like 20 bowls for breakfast. Anyway the point is that when they conducted the research they found that they where just as healthy as a healthy fit man the same age!

But in the case of a person who is 300lb if fat their weight it's completely diffent.

    Mohamed Alemara 5 months ago

    You left out a big part when describing low-carb diets. The body resorts to carbs for energy first, and if there aren’t any carbs then it goes to fat for energy. Low-carb diets like keto trick your body into using fat for energy, so you’re always burning fat. These diets turn you into a fat-burning machine

    For a healthy diet stick to: vegetables
    whole grains
    Try not to eat red meat too often (1 or 2 times a month).
    Try not to eat too much chicken (twice a week at most).
    Drink only water and tea. Tea should not come in packets. (Spruce, fir, cedar, and pine tree's leaves can all be made into tea.)
    Of course if you want to lose weight, eat less than what you burn.
    You can lose weight by eating junk food as long as you keep a calorie deficit. But it will be harder, and you'll feel like crap.
    Eat healthy, eat only when you're hungry, drink lots of water, sleep 8 hours a day (rip college students) and excercise.
    HIIT cardio burns the most calories in the least amount of time. It works well if you don't have too much time.
    Strength resistance training won't make you burn as many calories as HIIT cardio but you'll build muscle (Eat more protein of you do strength resistance training).
    That's about it.

    Alright USclip I watched it.
    Might as well say: I doubled my calories, now eating 3000-6000 day to day, and no exercise. I've lost over 100 pounds in about a year. Not sure how important calories really are anymore, especially since calorie restriction is linked to permanent slow-downs of your metabolism. All I did was limit carbs to 20 a day, though not counting fiber or carbs from green vegetables.
    Never been healthier. :)

      Lockstin & Gnoggin Just how?????? 6000 calories!?!!!!!????? With no exercise, I literally don’t care how healthy you eat, if you eat that much you’re going to gain weight unless your like the Hulk or something. I know that I used to think I ate like 3000 calories since I was very active and seemed to eat a lot but I was only really eating like 900-1500. So i’m just saying you probably aren’t counting.
