Losing weight tips

What are some good tips to lose weight with less effort? I think a lot of the hacks I see involve making annoying substitutions to food that aren't realistic.

I'm also willing to buy the low calorie stuff at the grocery store even if it costs more money. So any product recs?

Also counting calories with apps is such a pain in the ass. Tried that and it sucks when you're someone who actually cooks their meals with fresh ingredients. Like I'm not gonna measure my onions when I make a sauce.

Working out just makes me hungry, but I try to at least go for walks for mobility. But this isn't Culinaly. I'm trying to lose weight via the kitchen.

The past few years I've been only about 20-30 lbs overweight and I want to finally lose that and keep it off for good.

        Most of what you've lost isn't bodyfat, it's just retained water weight combined with simply having less food in your guts.

        t. dropped 8kg in the last week or two because I stopped drinking beer

    >What are some good tips to lose weight with less effort?
    Here's my definitive guide for losing weight with the least amount of thought and no calorie tracking (only tracking grams of protein):

    1. FASTING. If you fast for 24, 48, or 72 hours and then eat freely until satisfaction for a day or two and then repeat the fast you WILL be in a calorie deficit, guaranteed, unless you literally just eat fast food and sugar on your eating days. Since you said you make your meals you'll be fine on this point, don't limit yourself.

    2. PROTEIN. Eat your pounds of "ideal body weight" (see below) in grams of protein every day AT MINIMUM, then add fat and some healthy carbs to satiety. The protein will make you full and keep your full, so you don't overeat on fat and carbs. I you can't handle eating that much protein in one day, start with half that amount and add a bit more to your meals as you go until you can get up to that "ideal body weight" number in grams OR MORE.

    3. ACTIVITY. Go on daily walks of at least 30 minutes every single day, whether eating or fasting, preferably twice a day. You need to stay active to tell your body your muscles are in use and need to be spared and built up. Add in things like running, sprinting, or weight training on your eating days for better results. Use up your glycogen stores. More activity will help you be more hungry for protein to reach your protein goal.

      Dude just eat 3 meals a day. Nearly every human for all of human history has been a healthy weight without even considering it. That includes both active people and sedentary people
      Every fat person eats WAY more than they should

      Most people who say they eat normally somehow forget the 2000 cal snacks they spread out throughout the day. Everyone I know who stays thin literally never eats outside the standard meal times, and eats normal sized meals

        Fasting for 1-3 days in between eating guarantees a weekly caloric deficit even if you overeat. It's foolproof, that's the point. OP wants no calorie tracking, the simplest thing to do is just fast more days per week than you eat.

          Idk seems more laborious and unenjoyable than just eating like a human
          And really my rules are also foolproof. Just eat normally. There aren't even adverse effects to doing that. You're not gonna be tired or dizzy from hunger, you get to engage with normal people who eat normally. I guess the weight loss will be slower, but you'll get to have an eating habit that you can carry on for the rest of your life without issue

            I don't think you understand the absolutely MOUNTAINOUS amount of baggage that comes with saying to do ANYTHING "normally." For a lot of people, snacking on sweets all day long IS normal, it's what they see every person around them do every single day of their life. Even in my own experience, any time I choose not to eat donuts or cookies in the break room at work people will literally ask me why, and to them just saying, "I'm not hungry, I already ate," isn't a satisfactory answer and they'll tease and hound me over it. In situations like this, eating the donuts and the cookies and still eating a big breakfast, lunch, and dinner IS NORMAL. Is it healthy? NO. Will it make you lose weight? NO. Is it normal to everyone? YES.

            CICO is the goal and you get there by showing less shit in your face. It's easiest to shove less shit if you do fasting and keto (or at least low carb).

            Fasting feels good.

            Buddy hunter-gatherer humans from 8000 years ago aren't how I would model my diet for the modern man. We have 6000 years of civilization, wherein we were eating discrete meals basically all the time. Cross-culturally, 3 a day was a common one.

            >downright gluttony
            This is the problem with you Americans. You hear 3 meals and the image that comes to your mind is eating 3 Denny's Grand Slams a day.
            Two eggs for breakfast. Sandwich for lunch. Steak and potatoes for supper.
            A comfortable amount of food that you won't get fat with. You WILL experience hunger before lunch and before supper. That's fine

            >this idea that you should lose weight by eating is beyond moronic
            Again this is just American talk. Your idea of a meal is just fricked beyond repair. You can't fathom an instance of eating that doesn't involve using a ram rod to force food down your throat so you declare all eating to be the problem. Idk why you think you have to toggle between gorging yourself and starving to get a sensible weight. Nobody on earth does this but Americans

            NTA, and not an american what is your obsession with them. Your metabolism has not undergone any evolutionary changes since hunter-gatherer times. The ability to get fat is proof of our adaptation to fasting, single kg of fat is at least two full days of energy and there's esentially no upper limit on how much fat we can have

                Anon's right, though. Thousands of years (more realistically the last 200 years at most) are nothing compared to the length of the evolution of a human.

                Extra weight and obesity is not limited to Americans by any means. Europe is full of fat fricks as well and everything that Anon wrote is sensible and applicable across the western world.

                Anon I think I've just solved fasting. I had my last meal 47 hours ago and feel great with no energy or hunger issues. The key is stock.
                Before I started I filled the freezer with home made stock. Beef, pork, chicken, turkey, all kinds. I drink 3 cups of hot stock per day, the umami and salt is extremely satisfying, a hot drink during winter always hits the spot and suppresses hunger completely. I feel no drop in my energy levels or the ability to focus.
                In the past I would fast for up to 3 days but now I feel like I can go as long as my stock supply lasts.
                Last but not least, don't break fast with carbs and don't go back to your previous diet. Take advantage of the fact that after 48 hours fasting you are in ketosis and switch to keto for at least few extra days after fasting. You'll be able to have very satisfying meals but you'll also remain burning body fat.

                the key is making sure you are getting your electrolytes. if you want to move off stock to something that is completely calorie free, look up the snake diet on youtube. that guy has a formulation of salt/baking soda/potassium salt/magnesium that you drink throughout the day

                yeah I understand it's an alternative to the snake juice as a source of electrolytes. The amount of fat and calories in the stock is minuscule so I ignore them. The body gets into ketosis within 2 days so few grams of fat have no effect on anything. I'm sticking to my stock, a hot drink during winter is much appreciated anyway.

              In my eastern euro shithole, according to a somewhat large survey, 38% of the population only works out once a week, and about 50% do nothing. It's not as visible in the bigger cities, because yuppie phenomenon is still a thing here, but go out of the nice areas and you can tell American obesity issues are just about 15-20 years ahead of us

            not really. 12 hours out of the first day are for free (say you eat your dinner at 6pm, eat nothing more and go to bed. By the morning you've fasted 12 hours with zero effort) and completing 24 hours is quite easy. 36 hours (1 full day + night) is a nice sweet spot that does not take any labour or too much discipline, yet it cuts down your energy intake by 20 % if you do it once per week.

          there is nothing "foolproof" about starving yourself, this is just CO>CI with extra nonsense and extra damage to your health. we are wired to avoid starvation at all costs, once the hunger sets in all that you care about is food, and many people cannot ignore that and pretend that they don't have plenty of food at their reach that could put and end to the hunger immediately. ultimately the problem is that our food is too calorie dense and that messes up our sense of satiation, so we end eating more than we need.

        for most of human history food was not GUARANTEED, people could and still CAN go days without eating because of this, you're BUILT to withstand prolonged periods without food. The idea of "3 meals a day" is very, very recent.
        Even after the invention of farming, breakfast wasn't a common thing, that's why it's called a BREAK FAST, and not Mainmeal or Mostimportantmeal(doNOTskip), because you were going out of the norm (fasting) to eat.
        Eating 3 times a day is a privilege and honestly downright gluttony, you do not need that much food. Even thin people have enough fat saved in their bodies to fast for days. If you feel like shit fasting you're just missing sodium, you can easily replenish minerals by having a glass of water with sea salt.
        That's it, if you're fat and want to lose weight that's all you have to do, just don't fricking eat, moron.
        This idea that you should lose weight by eating is beyond moronic and the reason people never make it and give up. It's why everyone's obese and moronic nowadays.
        STOP EATING. wait 24 hours between meals, it's not that fricking hard, and when it's time to eat you can eat a reasonable, satiating meal. Meat, butter, vegetables, you don't have to eat diet food, you don't have to eat plain white rice with chicken. That's a terrible idea too, rice is all carbs no nutrients, carbs which turn to sugar, which spikes your insulin, the more you do it the less effective insulin becomes and that makes you FAT. Eat broccoli, eat cauliflower, eat kale, eat arugula, sauerkraut, beef, liver, salmon, cod, deenz. Cover your vegetables in high quality EVOO, drink some lemon and apple cider vinegar water. It's not that hard, just fricking do it. You don't have to be fat all your life.

Your second one sounds awkward, to be denied doesn't flow with the last clause of "I'm still out of place". I think the first bubble is a bit awkward in English but they mean [in order to be] denied by people, fat people shouldn't be allowed to love, it is pointless to dress up. That the first bubble is qualified by the following two.

    Don't worry about calories
    Cook all your own meals
    Eat mostly animal product (meat, liver, broth, eggs, milk, etc.)
    Eat only organic vegetables
    Use only EVOO, ghee, butter, tallow, duck fat, lard, etc. to cook
    Avoid sugar as much as possible (syrup, honey, sweet fruit)
    Avoid grains as much as possible (bread, pasta, rice, corn, oats, etc.)
    >if you crave bread or pasta try to ensure it uses organic flour, not enriched
    >better yet if you crave bread make your own sourdough, it's easy
    Don't avoid salt, pepper and other natural single-ingredient spices
    Drink spring water or bottled water (avoid tap water), coffee, tea, milk
    Don't avoid natural fat from animal product and plants, embrace it
    >e.g. only buy whole milk, eat the fat from your steak if you enjoy it
    Eat fermented foods as much as you like
    Eat as much meat as you can afford and like
    Eat twice a day within an eight hour window and be consistent
    Get 30m of direct sunlight a day (no sunscreen)
    Walk for 30m a day outside preferably
    Sleep eight hours a day (yes, this is important to lose weight)
    Supplement with methylated complex vitamin B (make sure to take directly after a fatty meal)
    Eat liver from ruminate animals (cows, lamb) as much as you can

    You literally can't do this and retain unhealthy amounts of fat. You get fat not necessarily because you eat fat but because your body is unhealthy and it's sweeping shit under the rug by encapsulating toxins and foreign agents it's afraid or don't know what to do with with fat cells.

    In fact if you do this you'll feel like you've woken up from a stupor and have energy and mental clarity like you have never felt before. Detrimental things like fast food, cake, alcohol, etc. will not only be unappealing but will probably straight-up disgust you

          >Eat only organic vegetables
          Why? What's wrong with non-organic vegetables in regards to losing weight?

          This and a very oversimplified explanation I gave as to why people get fat (and cancer) these days is because the body traps toxins it's afraid to process in fat.

          Ergo, eat non-toxic food, and an assurance (don't believe it's anything more) that your food is non genetically modified and has never been sprayed with any fungicides, herbicides or pesticides and has been grown using natural methods they've survived on for millennia is about as toxic free as you can guarantee.

          >inb4 plants have naturally occurring toxins

          Yes, but the body can tolerate that shit and usually passes it through. The toxins our bodies go "WTF is this" are usually so crazy shit that was synthesized or heavily processed in a lab.

          But as the other anon said, a particular problem in America is glyphosate is on almost literally EVERYTHING and different plants absorb it differently and you cannot wash it off and then YOU absorb it and guess what? It's made to kill organisms, your body is going to hold onto it, so do you think it's doing good for you?

          Nah.

          The best medicine is preventative medicine. Pay more for good food and you'll save money at the doctor's office.

              Nah, they save some money but they are most definitely not healthier

              But go ahead and keep putting garbage in your body to save some money. I can enjoy mental clarity, good sleep, good sex, not having to even use sunscreen anymore and not get sunburnt (inb4 Black person; I'm 100% white), gain muscle easier, feel younger, recover faster, don't get sick anymore, tolerate cold/heat better, and am at far less risk for cancer and other diseases now.

              Some of that is anecdotal, my own feelings as a benchmark from how I felt years ago, when, as a younger man, I should feel better than I do now since my habits, other than my diet, were the same. So if anything I should feel worse than I do now, right?

              I genuinely don't understand it when people don't want to eat better food, like their food that was genetically modified so it can better withstand herbicides is somehow better.

              100% of people would choose a natural food over the former alternative if given the choice but tell them it's more expensive and they stick to their wallet.

              Then again that's the curse of the poorgay: save money now and lack the foresight to save it in the long run. They can only think in the moment, which is why they are forever poor, forever unhealthy.

              I make no argument that I will live longer than anyone, but I will live a more enjoyable, fulfilled and pain-free life than they will.

                The cure for poverty is to get better reading skills.

                It's a trait that poor people have: that they would save money in the short-term at the expense of spending more in the long term. They'll do it with food and everything else. It's part of the reason why they're poor, but not just because of poor food choices.

      Cook your own food and portion it. Portioning is surprisingly good, since it'll help your budget and your health.
      Live an active life; if you don't already, go walking for 20-30 minutes. Finding a physical activity or hobby can also help.
      Fast once a week. I go 24 hours without food every week, and it's a surprisingly effective diet. Biology basically encourages you to take cheat days (the day before you fast) and lighter days (the day after you fast) to handle fasting properly.

    Meal prep. I've been working on losing weight this past year, and shed a ton so far. All I've done is restrict my caloric intake to around 1500calories, and go for 2-3km walks a few times a week.
    I hate calorie counting too. So I just meal prepped, that I don't have to think about it except for one day of the week. Come up with a basic template for your meals, and season differently to keep your taste buds from getting bored.

You have to stick with it no matter what you choose. Keto is the most satisfying because you can have that delicious fat. But if you can't deal with carb cravings then it's not for you. No matter what you have to make choices and be consistent. Just one cheat day can ruin you. Be steadfast when you settle on a direction and you will succeed. Good luck.

    Minimize eating out and make more of your own food. If you make your own food you know exactly how much butter, sugar, salt, etc is being used and can make cuts or replacements. A lot of food that people buy, whether from a store or a restaurant tend to be much unhealthier than they think, even when it comes to foods advertised as healthy. Whenever you buy foods that are already prepared check the nutrition label, you will often find it actually has a shitton of sugar, sodium, saturated fat or calories

    Focus on eating things that are filling. Proteins are filling. Complex carbs and whole grains are filing. Potatoes are filling. Most foods high in fiber tend to be filling. Fruits and veggies aren’t as filling, but you can eat a bunch of them because of how low calorie they are.

    Minimize drinking calories. High calorie drinks like sodas, milkshakes, fruit juices do not satiate you anywhere near enough to justify their calorie count. Water is free, you can drink a bunch of it and be fine. So is coffee and tea. Oils in general tend to be high in calories, if you enjoy frying food try to think of alternative ways of cooking it that use less oil, like baking or air frying. Be wary of things like salad dressing as well, sometimes they can be a high source of calories especially if mayo is involved

    Try to avoid snacking, by eating filling meals. If you absolutely have to snack, at least have it be something either low in calories (fruit) or high in protein (nuts, jerky)

    Really you should do it for a week or two so you have a good idea of what is coming in under your TDEE then you can just wing it from knowledge.
    Meals with large amounts of veges and high protein fills you up very easy and it's not hard to come in under regularly.

    trigger warning: pro keto opinion coming thru

    What made losing weight hard for me was sugar/carb addiction. A diet full of carbs made me crave more carbs. Lowering calorie intake, and carb intake, just made me want carbs even more. My body was telling me I'm dying because it's not being stuffed full of carbs. The cravings were unbearable. So much so that I would eat carbs just to get my body and mind to shut up and sacrifice yet another day of losing weight to sate carb cravings.

    A full keto diet immediately sent a shock to my system, and after a day of not eating a single carb, my body didn't ask me for carbs at all. My stomach didn't growl. My stomach didn't feel empty. Despite many times knowing my stomach was surely empty, as I hadn't been eating that much. Ignoring how easy it is to operate a caloric deficit with a high protein low carb diet, the rewiring it did to my cravings made the entire diet worth it.

    Keto is shat on by many a people on the internet. Sometimes for good reason, as keto memers will stuff their faces with a giant bacon weave and call it healthy. But keto is the only thing that has ever worked for me mentally as well as physically.

    Low calorie food is a trap.
    Your body adjusts the hunger hormone based on what you eat. If you're constantly eating at a calorie deficit, it gets used to it. If you're constantly eating at a calorie deficit AND completely filling yourself with high volume-low calorie foods, you get used to being stuffed, and you'll get hungrier faster/more intensively after meals.

    Drop breakfast/lunch dessert/afternoon snack/dinner dessert/night snack and eat smaller portions. Stop trying to game the diet or you'll never make it.

      Anon, the actual solution to preventing metabolic down-regulation is to alternate between fasting and feasting. You either eat your full TDEE in quality, healthy, homemade food or you eat nothing at all. That's how you keep your metabolism from fricking up. All caloric deficits should come from fasting so that you lose fat instead of muscle and so that you don't become sluggish with a low metabolism.

    Stop eating breakfast. Unless you're a day labourer or a kindergartener there's no good reason why you need to eat before lunch. Most people eat garbage like breakfast cereal or pastries for breakfast anyways. Replace with coffee & skim milk, absolutely no sugar. Have a single piece of unbuttered toast if you're famished.

    No snacks outside of meals. Eat lunch in the early afternoon and dinner around 9-10pm instead. Your lunch should be your biggest meal of the day. Your lunch should be about 800 calories and your dinner 4-500 depending on your BMI.

    Completely avoid drinking alcohol. Even if you diet well you can very easily consume over your daily caloric requirement by having even just a couple beers. If you drink regularly, cut down severely and try drinking only once per week, no more than 3 units in that day.

    You don't have to buy low calorie food or shit like that, just get a good idea of how many calories a day you actually eat and cut back. Try using one of those calorie counting apps like Loseit for a week or two just to give you a rough guideline for how much food you should eat in a day vs what your current routine is.

    Making healthier choices. Moving more. Eating until satisfied, not until full. You’re trying to change how you live, how you eat, how you experience life. I have found that drinking a lot of water helps portion control. I don’t mean a big jug always on you constantly sipping like some sort of moronic woman. But have one or two glasses of ice water before you eat. As well as learning how to cook healthier so you can have larger portions so you don’t feel hungry and dissatisfied with out being loaded up on unhealthy foods.

    Another big thing is also trying to find out what your worst food habit is. For me it was drinking energy drinks and soda. I was drinking calories with out eating then having a massive dinner and slamming my body with insulin spikes and getting sleepy after every meal. For others they use a ton of saturated fats like butter on prepackaged foods and fats and oils to deliver more flavor and salt. For someone else it might be eating snacks like Doritos and chips all day then eating meals right after just constantly grazing.

    Good luck anon.

    Stop eating "low calorie" meals that leave you hungry and wanting to eat more. The thing that makes you feel full isn't your stomach being physically filled, but the presence of a hormone called leptin in your system which is released when you eat food. The amount of leptin released is based on the sort of foods you eat and nothing more.

    https://optimisingnutrition.com/satiety-index/

    Read and process this entire article. If you want to feel full while keeping your caloric intake down, just eat more of the things that fill you up the most per calorie. Meat and vegetables are basically what you should be eating. The humble white potato is the most filling thing you can eat per calorie, and they're dirt cheap too. Oatmeal is moronicly filling and once again dirt cheap.

    Remember: Not all calories are equally filling.

        >the hunger comes back just as strong
        Perhaps in the short term, but not the long. Hunger is determined by the presence of a hormone called ghrelin in your system. Ghrelin's production isn't actually based on when you last ate or any just about anything to do with food really. It's more based on your routine. If your body is used to eating three times a day at 8am, 12pm, and 5pm, your body will produce ghrelin at those times to make you keep your routine. But the thing about ghrelin is that it's temporary; hunger doesn't steadily increase, but spikes then goes away even if you don't eat. Haven't you ever been so busy that you've skipped a meal? You don't actually feel hungry after a while because the ghrelin has gone from your system.

        https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/body/22804-ghrelin

        tldr if you just ignore hunger enough times your body will stop making you feel hungry at that time of day

            Oh and if you want another tidbit of information that might help, your body has two sources of energy, glucose and fat, but can only use one at a time. It will always preferentially burn glucose, and there's evidence that when burning glucose your body actually burns it as efficiently as possible, which is actually the opposite of what you want. This is opposed to burning fat as an energy source which can trigger something called mitochondrial decoupling whereby your body can actually waste energy, ie you burn more calories while running on fat than you do running on carbs. This is one of the big factors in why people think keto/low carb is great for losing weight, and while they're right most people are fricking moronic about it and just want to eat butter.

            Have you ever felt shaky after not eating for a while? That's your body running low on glucose. After another short while it'll go away as your body switches to burning fat. And the thing about burning fat is your body has a huge reservoir of it.

            that sounds more like you rebounded in fat
            you should never eat the same as pre dieting because chances are the loss of muscle and fat reduced your basal metabolic rate significantly so you need fewer calories a day now

            >that sounds more like you rebounded in fat
            Eating at +1000kcal over maintainence shouldn't cause you to put on 15kg in a fortnight or anything even close to it. You massively underestimate just how much of your bodyweight comes from the contents of your guts and retained water. I have lost 25lbs in the last fortnight just by stopping drinking beer after having drunk 4/8 pints a day for the last two years.

                I agree, they are. After experimenting with my own body I'm starting to think that there's some underlying hormonal mechanism(s) that dictate how efficiently you burn energy and whether you body wants to store it or not. Just look at steroids. If it's all CICO, why do steroids work at all? All steroids do is cause a huge hormonal change in your body, and it's the hormonal change that does the real work. People on steroids can eat pretty much anything they want, all sorts of junk, alcohol, donuts, whatever, and so long as they're going to the gym they'll get big and lean.

                Just make small positive changes to your lifestyle habits and forget about losing weight. You'll lose it without realising it after a while. You can't force it.

        Oh and if you want to do an experiment to see how much weight you've REALLY lost, once you've finished your diet spend a week eating how you did before the diet. There's a good chance the weight you think you're losing is just your body having less physical food in your guts and retaining less water to process it all. I've done it before, I cut down to 62kg, then within a couple weeks of eating like I used to was back to 77kg. It wasn't fat, it was just the weight of the food and water in my guts.

      Salt has no calories. Seems like a good way to add flavor to low calorie meals. Just make sure you drink more water to compensate.

    1. Don't buy any snacks
    2. Don't drink any sugary drinks
    3. Eat 2 meals a day of real food
    4. moderate portion sizes. learn to eat to 80% full. Eat to when you are not stuffed but still satisfied.

    You will not only lose weight but be metabolically healthy.

    Keto is the way. Even if all the haters are right and it does nothing, what it does do never nevertheless is:
    1) ban all snack foods
    2) ban all desserts
    3) ban all sugar drinks as well as beer
    4) ban nearly all fast food and take out.

    This alone will be enough of a diet change for the typical American farting to lose weight regardless of the supposed insulin effects. Even if you get the keto fast food you’ll quickly realize the food is so bad without the sugar bun, you won’t even want to get it anymore.

    I just do one meal a day. Not religiously, but most of the working days I just drink water, tea, or coffee, without any sugar or milk, to not break ketosis. The benefits:

    >Can eat whatever you want for that one meal
    >Extra time in the morning, since I eat only dinners
    >No bloated stomach feeling
    >Regular and good bowel movements

    I do break it from time to time on weekends when I go out, but it really doesn't matter. And it takes only a few days or a week to get used to it.

    Today I had this lovely steak with haselback potatoes and salad.

    1200 calories per day will do it. No matter how big or small you are, basically everybody will lose weight on 1200 calories per day.

    Just about anything itt will work if you commit to it but honestly, regular physical activity helps a lot. It doesn't even have to be a sweaty workout, just a good walk does wonder. Get that blood pumping.
