Need some advice...
So I've pretty much been struggling with my weight since I was 11, but I made a commitment to myself about a year ago to get in shape and finally be comfortable in my skin. I've been exercising for a year and doing yoga for about 8 months now and I can feel that I'm more in shape, but the weight is just not coming off. Definitely in a plateau phase... My uncle says I need to focus on diet now and aside from the obvious about what is healthy, I'd love to hear some input from others on how to assist me in my transformation.
Heya well I am still in highschool but a good way to start loosing weight is not eating a lot and of course for a 16 year old....food is life xD. Anyways I have found out that if I am busy with school and sports...I don't eat as much and my mom gives me nutritional foods so try cutting down portions and maybe join a sports club in the summer or recreation team.
Well I mean I'm not 11 anymore haha I'm almost 25...yeah i mean I'm active and I know the basics to eating healthy but I want more info
Reduce your calorie intake (controlled healthy diet) and increase calorie expenditure (longer or more intense exercising). You will lose weight.
Definitely staying hydrated, sleep is a mess right now because I'm overseas with no ac, I'm not counting my caloric intake though... That might be the first thing I could remedy. But I'd guess I'm around 1500 right now
Yeah I just can't wait to go home, I've been in Greece for 6 weeks and you think oh its a Mediterranean diet so it must be healthy... Hell to the no. The food is just all way too delicious and tempting. I have an easier time controlling my salt and sugar intake in the states even though there's about 1000x more fast food. But how can you say no when your grandma cooks you pasta with red meat?
Definitely gonna get back on the grind when I get back. This app has helped in maintaining a regimine but my yoga studio really kicks my ass into gear
Running 3 miles a day will help u very much..
Cut out sugar and processed foods COMPLETELY. Start lifting weights. Weight lifting causes your body to burn calories all day, whereas cardio type workouts mainly burn calories while you are engaging in the workout. Exercise 6 days per week and eat whole foods. You will see results guaranteed.
