Best Weight Loss Blog. My Weight Loss Journey. Recipes for Weight Loss. Over many years of trying to lose weight, I tried a lot of different weight loss diets, programs, and even some gimmicks.. Blog focuses on science-based health resources and weight loss information to help you live a healthy life.
This is a guide for losing weight for health reasons. This assumes a few things:
There are four basic ways to approach losing weight. They can be approached simultaneously, but it’s important to distinguish starting points:
1. Exercise of some form (cardio, resistance training)
2. Change how much you eat (reduce calories)
3. Change what you eat (e.g. keto diet, vegan diet)
4. Change when you eat (e.g. intermittent fasting)
Overall, if your goal is to lose weight, exercise is not where you should start. I strongly recommend exercise, and it’s a good thing to do. In particular, resistance training can help you build muscle which can improve overall health and assist in long term weight loss. But assuming you have limited time, energy, and will power, this is not going to give the best result.
This is in line with standard diet advice: eat less, move more! This advice has failed for decades. 95% of people who “diet” end up gaining back all the weight within a year. It’s for a simple reason: eating the same foods in the same way, but just eating less of it, requires a huge amount of willpower. You spend every minute of every day fighting hunger and cravings. You sit down to a meal, try to eat a small amount, and eventually give in, consume everything in sight, and gain the weight back.
There are a few simple rules for “what to eat” that are fairly universal:
1. Avoid sugar and refined grains
2. Try to eat “real foods”.
My personal recommendation is low carb. It helps fight cravings the best in my opinion. That said, any diet that sticks to real foods, and doesn’t overwhelm you with too much of the combination of both carbs and fat will be successful. You can lose weight on both a carnivore and vegan diet. Just choose one and stick with it!
Recommendation for lose weight.
You want to get started, and just get told what to do? OK, follow these steps, which are optimized to avoid demanding a lot of willpower:
Identify the junk food you binge on, and remove it from your house. Give it away, throw it away, burn it and dance around the bonfire. It requires 0 willpower to eat food that isn’t there.
Introduce a 12pm-8pm eating window. Allow yourself 1 day a week to be flexible on it, but otherwise stick to it solidly. You’ll be hungry the first few days, and then you’ll get used to it. Very little willpower necessary.
Reduce carb intake. Sugary beverages should be the first to go. Do not make any meals based around breads, pastas, etc. This one is more complex, but low carb food is really delicious. It takes effort to pull this off, but you’re not fighting hunger and cravings on a daily basis.
