Reminds me of an episode of “Creepshow” I watched. A company had found a weight loss method that involved using some kind of leech that would suck out the fat instead of blood. It seemed to work great until there was an eclipse. Not going to say what ultimately happened but you can probably guess. By the way, “Creepshow” is a horror anthology series on Shudder based on the movies of the same name which are an homage to the old EC horror comics.
I do what feels right for me. I take a 40 minute walk almost every day, part of the walk is up a big hill, and in the 6 months I've been doing that (since lockdown) I can now walk up the hill at a decent pace and not even get winded.
I watched my weight, it dropped initially then went back up as I gained muscle, but the real telling factor was that I needed to put a couple extra notches in my belt because my waist was slimming down so much.
I recently took up an interesting practice - eat out of a bowl, not a plate. A bowl limits the amount that gets otherwise piled on to a plate, and I feel quite full after just a bowl of food. And this isn't some gigantic mixing bowl! It's about the size of my hand.
I also changed how I store things in the fridge. This may seem to have little to do with eating healthy, but I arranged my fridge so that the foods that spoil quickly (fruits, veggies, greens mainly) are on the top shelf - the "must eat very soon" shelf.
The two other shelves are arranged "with should eat within a week or so" and "the stuff that lasts".
So, simply by changing how things are arranged in my fridge, I discovered I'm eating more non-meat things, which has the side-effect of reducing calorie intake and quite frankly improving nutritional value.
Oh well still looking at the green side so can't complain!
Can you still see if your sockets are from the same pair without a mirror?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Actually I'm 6'3" and weigh 185. We don't buy sweets or junk food, rarely eat out.
I was wondering if you were being sarcastic, serious, or a little of both. Hah, I'm 6'3" and around 210, I went down to just under 200 when I started doing the daily walks and then went back up to 210, but the waste keeps slimming and legs keep bulking up!
Yeah, I'm 57, will be 58, oh my, next Wed, so yeah, I get it's harder for the pounds to come off as one gets older.
Talk to your doctor about this. They can give you direction to where to get started. The bottom line is in order to lose weight you need to consume fewer calories than you expend, which basically means eating right and very possibly less and exercising more.
A lot of health care plans actually cover weight loss for the purposes of getting a "healthy" weight.
