This doesn't make any sense. I'm sorry, but this is just straight up wrong. There's a lot that seems true anecdotally or based on personal experience, but that doesn't mean there's a scientific basis for it. I think I might have unintentionally contributed to the broscience being thrown around here, so this is my last post on the topic, but lifting weights will not inherently make you bigger, and it definitely doesn't lower your metabolism. Ultimately what matters is net caloric balance in weight loss, but there are complex physiological factors involved in how your body regulates which and how much energy it uses, which is why the concept of just running on the treadmill longer is not a very efficient method of losing weight long term. I have a graduate degree in physiology, but more importantly, I read and follow a lot of the newest studies in this specific area.
That being said, for the average person, any system whether its a food diary, weight watchers, or myfitnesspal which forces you to track your intake on a daily basis will result in weight loss because most people eat more than they think they do on a daily basis. It also gives you a better awareness and feel for nutritional balance, and there's a lot of psychological factors at play as well. Also, just hang out with skinny people, studies have shown that people who hang out with fatter people tend to gain weight and vice versa.
The tapeworm diet is also an option.
You lost all credibilty when you said hang out with skinny people to lose weight.
Lets see what you look like.put up or shut up.post #39187 of 476266/22/16 at 12:25pmpost #39188 of 476266/22/16 at 12:33pmpost #39189 of 476266/22/16 at 12:39pmQuote:
Peer groups --and their behaviors, and what they value -- are definitely a factor. Just look at the last few pages of this thread.post #39190 of 476266/22/16 at 12:42pmpost #39191 of 476266/22/16 at 12:44pmQuote:
Is the peer group a spin class or eating wings at a bar.
Come on gimme a fucking break.
Fucking Millenials man.post #39192 of 476266/22/16 at 1:01pmQuote:
Now you're just acting daft on purpose.
A higher proportion of thin people are probably doing coke and heroin than are stuffing their face at a wings joint, relative to total numbers participating in said activity.
Noob has a fair point. You're just playing dumb. C'mon brah.post #39193 of 476266/22/16 at 1:09pmQuote:
Both of your examples apply, though. In the first, the peer group will likely have a positive influence in terms of attitudes conducive to weight loss, and a negative impact on the second.
Also, no matter how hard I try to act like it online, I'm not 18.post #39194 of 476266/22/16 at 1:09pm
Since there’s not enough weight loss opinions here, I’ll throw out one more.For the average overweight person (not someone with autoimmune disease for example), exercising and eating real foods will both contribute to weight loss. If you can exercise hard enough, like I could before an injury wrecked my body, you will not be fat. If you dial in your diet, like I did before I lost ~80 pounds ~5 years ago with very limited exercise, you will not be fat. I still can’t exercise much, I don’t count calories, I eat as much as I can, and I’ve kept all the weight off. Before settling on the specific diet that worked for me, I tried very hard to count calories, eat a Mediterranean diet, eat a vegan diet, eat a low-fat diet and whatever Walter Willett said I should eat, and it always ended in disaster. You can count calories all you want, but if you’re not an average person, and there is an underlying problem with some type of food that you’re eating, then this won’t work because you’ll be miserable. An average person simply cannot comprehend what it feels like to have your body shut down with hunger, or to decide between eating foods that you know will make you less hungry and keep you from having that multiple-day debilitating migraine. I’ve tried lots of wierd diets out of desperation. Once I just didn’t eat anything for four days because I read a paper that said it would restart the the production of immune cells because the body eats them to save energy during starvation. After three days I was indeed starving, and I pretty much had to walk around every 10 or 20 minutes to keep my body temperature up. It kinda sucked, but it was nowhere near as miserable as the hunger I felt on previous diets. My point here is that just telling someone to eat less won’t necessarily work if there is an underlying condition, particularly involving inflammation as in my case. Celiac is a good example of this, but certainly not the only example. So, all rants aside, here are some links to some nutrition websites that I like. I don’t follow any of these diets specifically, but I think they are good, and they show you the whole diet without having to buy anything. The closest thing I’ve seen to my diet is that of Tom Brady.Here’s one more, a 538 article from a guy who tried Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson’s diet.post #39195 of 476266/22/16 at 1:15pm
this is the thrift thread right? are dudes really challenging each other to a wet t shirt contest in here?
in other news (ahem!) i took my kid to the playground and some lady was like "oh nice shoes those are super cool" i thought she was talking about my kids neon green sauconys.
in hindsight she may have been referring to what i was wearing:
