First off I don't think you should call yourself madfatstupidpig. Secondly, what exactly do you need help with? If English isn't your primary language write in your primary language so everyone can just use a translator and hopefully help you.

Lol, I didn't expect that my English is too bad... Fine... Thank you for advise

It isn't that your English is bad, it's just you may be more inclined to use a different word than someone else so they get confused! And if that's the case, they can't properly suggest something to help you

Hi Kate. Not sure what you mean by 'restricting your food'. If you mean cut down and eat less and less: that's not the way.

You should keep track of your calory balance on a daily basis: get yourself a little app helper to track and breakdown each single meal (including snacks and drinks!). Be honest, the only one betraying would be yourself.

Second step: calculate your basic metabolic ratio (what your body burns in rest) and add the activity factor for none to light moving (check out Scotty K's topic related to losing and gaining weight) - it'll give you an idea of your energy consumption e.g. for just normal day in school or office. Finally add the cals burned through working out - app, gym or outdoors.

Thus you will know what your body is burning. Now compare it to your intake: if you eat more (on average) you will gain, if you eat less, you will lose.

Very important: DON'T shred your intake down to health threatening levels like 1200 cals or less per day!! Also don't completely cut down on carbs! If your body doesn't have enough energy, your metabolism will go in starvation mode, i.e. shutting down everything not necessary to survive AND store any cal it can possibly grab. You will feel tired, weak and depressed, not wanting to move anymore at all. Plus: you may even burn muscles and feel even weaker.

Thus: set your intake to a healthy level (your BMR is a good start e.g.) and watch your macrobiotics - basically your body needs all of them. And just try to eat healthy like fruits and vegetables. There's no need to completely cut out junk, you can have cheat days to reward your efforts and remember why you're doing this. Just keep it to a healthy level.

And finally: just move it! Having your intake at BMR level means that every workout you do will get you in the losing zone! It will take some time (1kg of fat to lose equals being 7000cals short!) so don't rush it and give up quickly. Slow and steady consistency and discipline will win this race - and you will feel and enjoy the results!

Best of luck!

Thank you so much for the advises

Welcome. Explained this often, but not getting tired to do so. The more people have good knowledge and also spread it, the less diet industry will squeeze out of the ignorant rest. Enjoy your journey! :-)

Hey now! First of all, I see that you are working out and recording your progress, and that's a great start, don't stop doing that, everyday,a little more! Matthias always has some great eating advice, and there are many more that you'll find on here that give great workout and eating advice, listen to them.

Lastly, do your best to be as encouraging and positive as you can, especially to yourself, and try to stay away from negative posts, they will discourage you from getting the work you need done, find positive people, follow them, participate in their blogs between workouts, we're all in this together, different goals, but same work ethic!

Thank you!!!

Thanks. Yeah, I've already counted calories and it helps. But sometimes I can't tolerate it and eat sweets with lots of carbohydrates)
