How to lose weight?

I had the same problem with not being able to lose weight. I used an app called Noom weight loss coach along with hydroxycut weight loss. That worked for me. I used to be 220 and I Got down to 165.

Mine didn’t come off til I did hiit workouts and only drank water after supper. Then I got those results :arrow_down:

This is what I was given while pregnant I had GD and talked with a professional dietition.

This is me after 3 kids.
What I did to lose weight was drink green tea in the morning and in the evenings with drinking water throughout the day. I wore a post pregnancy waist belt while I did post pregnancy workouts at home. I ate healthy as well.

Try this apple cider vinegar mix once daily…

2 tbspns apple cider vinegar
1 tbspn lemon juice
A pinch of baking soda

Put all in a glass,add drink mix…I used great value Rasberry Ice…fill glass with ice water and stir. Drink once a day after eat dinner.

I lost 20 lbs in one month doing this.

Intermittent fasting and formulaFF from ItWorks! are the only things that help me lose weight. No matter how healthy I eat or how often I work out, I can’t ever lose weight without using the formulaFF and doing the intermittent fasting. The fasting on it’s own helps a bit, but I often have my weight go up & down, over and over, and stay in the same 10lbs range. The supplements really help to kick the weight loss into gear. I also use the thermoFIGHT, which helps even more, but even just using the one helps me lose weight. And no, I’m not a rep or anything. I don’t sell it, I just use it, because it really does work.

Watched what I ate and drunk plenty of water

Do high carb days and low carb days til you find which combonation tricks your body into burning fat on the low carb days.

I would suggest getting your thyroid checked, pregnancy can really throw it through a loop

I went from 331 to 276 by stopping all drinks except water, doing Premier protein for breakfast and dinner and doing a small healthy lunch. And adding walking.

You should make sure you are healthy first and not deficient in anything! That being said there are tons of products out there remember most also require you to move around more. Good luck and keep us posted!

Drink lots of water. Make sure you’re eating smaller portions frequently through the day, and make sure you’re measuring correctly with serving sizes etc

Firstly, you HAVE to eat. If you don’t eat correctly, your metabolism slows down. I have an app I use to meal prep. It’s not my app and it’s free. I think I’ll be ok posting it here but I’m not sure. If you’re interested in it, message me and I’ll send it to you

You sound like me, almost to the T.

Start following Ilana Muhlstein on IG (I am NOT a Beachbody coach or advocate for anything AT ALL so don’t come for me lol) I love her food ideas, advice, and if you end up getting her 2B Mindset program she helps you learn to adjust your attitude about food and some good every day techniques to tailor your food intake to YOU. And if you don’t get the program you can still get major yummy food ideas and advice for free from her page!

I know how hard it is on you emotionally AND physically, but remember that your worth does not equal your weight. Good luck mama xo

What are you eating in a typical day? I suggest you download a free app to track EVERYTHING you put in your mouth including all foods, water, caloric drinks. You can also track your exercise/walking. Many of these apps allow you to put in your current weight and your goal weight and it with then tell you how many calories you should eat a day to achieve your goal weight in a specific time.

Also… walking is great, but try to add a little be of weight lifting to your routine. Start with some basic exercises… check out Pinterest for some
Ideas.

I got fitness pal app and I eat the calories they tell me too. I cut out bread, potatoes, sugar, soda, etc. I’ve lost 22lbs in two months.

Water, cut carbs, try lazy keto. Weigh and measure. 5 lbs of fat weighs same as 5 lbs of muscle but looks leaner. Make sure you are eating enough calories if breastfeeding add 500 calories to what your calories to lose is. Make sure meeting that with better choices and if not great choices then keep within your calories.

If he thinks anything less of you, after being pregnant for 10 months with his child and going through everything that goes along with pregnancy…then he can go f#ck himself :rofl:

Keto is the way to go my mom was 278 and got to 187 it took her 8 months to do it

I drank a lot of cranberry pomegranate green tea sweetened with Splenda plus fiber. I ended up losing 60 lbs stopped because of a move and recently started again and have already lost 15lbs

First, you need to eat. If you don’t eat regularly your body stores everything you eat as fat. As it doesn’t know when youre going to get food again. Drink as much water as you can. Breakfast is key as it kick starts your metabolism. Maybe try intermittent fasting. Nothing to eat after a 6 and only water to drink until 10 am. I’ve never done it, but I’ve seen it work for many others. Good luck to you mama, learning to love your body can be hard!

I 100% reccomend a keto diet !!! Iv lost 170 lbs in a year and a half just doing it lazily xx

My doctor prescribed contrave for me. It has worked wonders. I have lost 50 lbs since January and continue to loose every week.

Everyone reacts differently to medications but this one worked for me. I’ve tried everything on the market and this is the only one that has helped me.

It could be medication. I was having the same issue. I stopped getting my depo shot and now I only eat a little bit before I lose my appetite. I have lost 20lbs since I stopped it.

Lots of protein/veggies, not many carbs

I suggest seeing a nutritional therapist. You very well could have a food addiction

Please message me for a lifestyle change not a diet. Diets never work.

Honestly, it’s a brain game. You have to overcome the inner thoughts that lead to the binge eating. Find the triggers and find ways to cope with them or avoid them all together. Tell yourself positive things all of the time. “I don’t crave that.” “I don’t want that.” “I feel great being healthy.”

Topamax (Topiramate) is sometimes prescribed to curb cravings and binging behaviors.
You should talk to your doctor, and perhaps a counselor to get to the root cause of the binging.

I feel your pain,food is life…:neutral_face:especially with all the lockdowns and staying home all the time and having a baby, arghhhhhh​:sob:

Plexus has given me the ability to function with energy.
This has given me my LIFE back.
My confidence back.
I’m calmer. Not constantly stressed out.
Happier. No insane or irrational mood swings.
I used to be really stressed. I survived on candy, chips, Pepsi, gas station snacks and fast food. Sure, every now and then I’d have a salad (on the side of my large very cheesy pizza! And then you KNOW I rewarded myself with a damn cookie for eating that salad! :laughing: I had crazy cravings. Going to bed with a big ol bag of Reese’s or some other kind of chocolate and a pop to watch a movie until I fell asleep happened more often then it didn’t. I didn’t sleep good AT ALL. My anxiety was through the roof, seriously THROUGH. THE. ROOF! Just ask my hubby or my mama, it effected my days and especially the middle of my nights so much! Yes, for some reason my anxiety got worse as it got closer to nightfall or when it got dark outside and when I was the only one awake in the house at night it was even easier for my mind to race with all the anxious thoughts.

I was always sick too… headaches, tummy issues. I had crippling digestive issues.

I lived with chronic pain in my neck for a couple years before starting Plexus. Which most likely stemmed from me being super overweight and working on my feet all day. Inflammation ruled my body. I lacked energy. I lacked motivation. I honestly had just resigned myself to the fact that this must be what it feels like to be a mama.

Until I decided to give this a try.
And guess what?
Within the first few days I could tell something in me felt a little different. Something was definitely happening. First, I noticed I had some energy and it felt GOOD. Then, I remember one morning waking up thinking, “MAN! I slept good last night!” Within the first few weeks I noticed I wasn’t craving sugar like a mad woman every day. Instead, I was craving healthier foods. I started drinking water, actually CRAVING IT again for the first time in a long time.
I had energy.
I began having pain free days.
My digestive issues started disappearing.
My husband noticed a huge change in my mood and he LOVED IT!

That was it. I was all in.

I’ve seen people set free. Over and over again.
I KNOW it will work for you too.
I. KNOW. IT.

But here is the thing. I won’t force it on you. I won’t hound you or chase you down. I won’t make you try it and I won’t nag you to be consistent.
It’s up to you.
Being ready to make a change for yourself. Being ready to truly be consistent for longer than a week or a month.

YOU ARE WORTH IT.

Not just that. Your family is worth it.
They need you to be the best version of you.

If there was ONE thing you invested in, hands down, it should be this.
It should be you. :yellow_heart:

I have been taking thrive ( all natural vitamins it has made a world of difference for me. I was close to 300 lbs when I started. Binge eating was an understatement for myself.
I have now been keeping thrive in my system for the last 5 yrs been able to maintain the weightloss, even through the shutdown. Absolutely love my daily energy to keep up with the kids & the household. Be blessed hun. Let me know if you might have any questions.

Look into Brag apple cider vinegar, I do two tablespoons in my mint flavored water in the morning…lost 12 pounds so far…and lots and LOTS of water

I really like bell peppers and hummus

I have tried everything in the world to lose weight and it’s always just one or two pounds here one or two pounds there never amounted to nothing 2 years ago I had something very bad happen in my life I weigh 270 lbs I got down to 224 I was losing over 10 lb a week by not eating but once or twice a week then one day my appetite just come back and I’ve gained a hundred pounds back I weigh more than I did before I started at 329 now I had a closet plum full of pants capris t-shirts night shirts nothing would fit now so I had the opportunity to box them all up and I’m going to give to my sister when she comes to get them some of them even has tags still on them at least my sister will be getting some use out of them

I would talk to your doctor. I know when I get really upset or emotional I tend to wanna eat a lot. For the last three months I have been on a lazy keto diet I keep My net carbs below 30. sometimes when I get emotional and I want to eat more I’ll go over but I’ll stick to the food that’s on keto. They have keto ice cream and keto candy so that’s really help me a lot lol I’ve already gone down three pants sizes. I also do 20 hour fast and then I have four hours to get my 30 net grams of carbs in. I also drink a lot of water. But I’m not a person that East’s all day even before I went on this life change I was only eating one meal but it was usually super unhealthy so I kept the eating schedule the same but incorporate better food and lots of water. I also take lots of vitamins since starting this. It’s extremely hard the first month but once I made it past that it’s been better. I also give my self a cheat MEAL once a week. If I’m feeling like I wanna eat something I shouldn’t. A lot of people on keto do a cheat DAY and for me it was to easy to slip back into it. So I just do the one meal. And desert of course :joy_cat::joy_cat: but usually a desert is once a month

I lost almost 60lbs on Noom, and I feel AMAZING!

Substitute a lot of the carbs with something else. Ex: if you’re a coffee drinker, use half and half instead of creamer. Tonight I made tacos, but instead of taco shells I used avocados. Get low carb wraps instead of bread, etc. many things you could do here. Also, you could try a meal supplement shake for breakfast and lunch, and then a high protein dinner. If you’re hungry in between… snack on some cheese sticks, celery and peanut butter, etc. also, a lot of walking is a great method of weight loss.

Cut down on carbs an sugars. Eat lots of veggies. And drink lots of water. Walk at least 30mins a day. Make sure you are having 3 square meals with light, healthy snacks in between also.

Drink lots of water! Don’t snack after dinner. Watch carbs and sugar intake. Set a goal to exercise and get active. I always brush my teeth after dinner and I don’t crave anything! When you are bored and want a snack drink water or distract yourself! Keep healthy snacks in the house! And indulge but in moderation!! You got this! Focus on one day at a time and don’t get so caught up in the scale number.

Food is my weakness. Happy- I eat, sad- I eat more. I lose and gain, like a yo-yo. I’ve found for me personally, I can cut back on portions and work out 5 days a week to lose weight and actually keep it off as long as I’m working out. Diets are an absolute fail for me no matter which or what I try, because I just LOVE food. Especially rolls lol

Intermittent fasting, calorie deficit, it all depends. I would definitely talk to a doctor just to be safe and to get other options for your body type. :slightly_smiling_face:

I was really bad with binge eating(embarrassed to even admit) due to stress and never eating during the day(my kids keeping me busy). At night I try to stay away from the tv due to it being a trigger. I put my mind into reading a book or doing something productive. If I get hungry, I drink a ton of water at night or spoil myself with some herbal tea.

Count calories and exercise daily

I see an endocrinologist for weightloss. She put me on phentermine and topomax. She has told me to cut me food intake by 30% cut out alot of carbs, more fruits and veggies and to use a smaller plate.

You arent failing… if you keep trying.
So maybe do one extra thing every day… take a walk… eat less… work your abs… any little thing will help… and motivate you

Binge eating is a mental disorder!! No diet will ever fix that!! You have to change the way you look at food. Stop focusing on what you " can’t have". That alone leads to binge eating…trust me I know. I recommend talking to a specialist that focuses on eating and mental disorders.

I the same tips but wanted to say loving all the support instead tare down…losing weight is hard

Therapy first. Sounds like addiction as well as trauma plus bad habits. Why are you binging, what are your triggers, what hole in your life are you filling with food? See an addiction counselor or psychiatrist to get to and address the root of your problem, or nothing can get better.

Once you have that sorted out & have ways to counteract your binge behavior, get with a nutritionist who will work with your likes and dislikes. If you love chocolate, just eat small portions on some occasions (get a single bag of M&Ms from 7-11). If you like chips, maybe change to baked ones or ones made from cauliflower, for example. Instead of soda, order or buy unsweetened tea or sparkling water (with natural flavors, no aspartame).

You have to commit to change your life from here on, which sounds scary, but “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Take things very slowly as you change eating habits one at a time. Give up or change one thing and do it for a month before you change anything else.

Switch out foods for healthier versions: brown rice, whole wheat bread & pasta instead of white, for example. Or use spaghetti squash, zucchini “noodles”, or edamame “pasta.” Choose frozen nonfat yogurt instead of ice cream. Use an air fryer vs. grease in a pan.

Go for more whole grains instead of potatoes, rice, corn and pasta. Quinoa (Keen-wah) is easy to cook, only takes a few minutes, is delicious, and is the only grain that is a complete protein. There’s spelt, farro, teff, amaranth, buckwheat kashi, wheat berries and more from online if your local grocery stores don’t have them. And of course oatmeal is good, grits less so, and cream of wheat less beneficial, but still healthier than Wonder Bread. Add applesauce, bananas or other fruit to plain oatmeal; don’t buy the flavored kinds loaded with sugars.

Buy single-serve portions of cravings like one pack of Oreos or Sun Chips from a vending machine or those 4 oz. tubs of ice cream, so you won’t have any more to eat when that’s gone. Buy those bags of tiny potatoes so you can cook just 3 at a time to eat. Eat them with the skin on.

Eat off smaller plates and bowls with smaller utensils (teaspoons and dessert forks, for example), cut your servings in half of everything except colorful vegetables—double or triple those. I always have a bag of frozen mixed vegetables and a box of frozen chopped spinach to dump in recipes. You can also buy frozen chopped bell peppers and chopped onions or cans of greens to add to recipes. Commit to meatless Mondays or vegan dishes one day a week, but don’t load up on cheese. Think of cheese like the French—a small piece is dessert.

Add fresh fruit to plain yogurt vs. buying the sugary sweetened kinds.

Cook more at home. If you hate it, use Blue Apron or Hello Fresh low cal options to simplify matters. Shop the perimeter of the grocery store & skip most of the food in between. Avoid the bakery, pasta aisle, candy aisle & most prepared or packaged foods. Eat low on the food chain.

Plan your meals & measure your portions. If you need to eat out, decide the healthiest options to order. Choose Wendy’s salads vs. burgers, Panera or Mediterranean fast casual instead of McDonalds. I ask for a box with my meal & put half the meat & carbs in it immediately. I eat all the vegetables with what’s left on my plate, then add a bunch of colorful vegetables to the leftovers for another meal.

Buy organic meats without growth hormones (partly why Americans are so fat). Eat smaller portions and less meat/poultry overall and you can afford it. Buy organic dairy too—pesticides accumulate in breast tissue. Organic is always better for you, but meat and dairy are the most important to choose organic.

Always carry a full water bottle with you & skip sodas & plastic when out.

Have/make lots of healthy snacks on hand: veggie sticks & hummous, cut up fresh fruit, small bowls of soup to heat up, small portions of nuts & dried fruit for snacks on the go.

It’s easy to make your own soup. Start with broth or bouillon (bonus if you’ve boiled a meat carcass for hours to get bone broth). Add what leftover meat or fish you have, then any vegetable leftovers and a bouillon cube h DJ or each cup of broth. Add cooked rice, noodles, corn or cubed potatoes if you want, a can of (rinsed) beans, and whatever additional vegetables you have on hand that would go (no red cabbage—it’ll turn your soup blue). If you want a creamy purée, toss in the blender with tofu or unsweetened condensed milk. Add herbs and spices. If you need tomatoes and onions, buy salsa & use that vs. chopping it all yourself.

I did intermittent fasting. I stopped drinking pop and lowered my sugar intake. Also tried to make smaller portions.

My biggest advice to you is to keep going. Even if you binge one day, just keep pushing past it and realize that you still lost weight and one day isn’t going to set you back. If it’s really hard, maybe set one day a month where you can eat as much as you want and then the next day switch back to your normal diet. I’d also not tell yourself “no” so much and learn you can have anything you want, but in moderation (eat a piece of cake, put the cake away). I used to binge a lot and this mindset really help. There is no failing, only bumps in the road. You will not gain all those lbs back in a day, believe me. Your weight fluctuates so much from day to day, but you are still losing fat.

I would recommend a therapist, but what I have started doing is not really dieting just changing a small thing until it becomes a habit. Right now I have started doing a smoothie for breakfast next will focus on adding more veggies for snack or dinner. If I try to do big changes it does not work amd I revert back to old habits but baby steps are what is helping me…

Binge eating is actually a eating disorder. I would recommend talking to a therapist who specializes in this.

I use to be 350lbs and just bought my first bikini top today… The problem to start with are diets!!! Do you know what the first 3 letters in the word diet are?.. DIE!! Do not diet. What you need to do is make small lifestyle changes. I quit all soda and switched to just water. I switched to decaf coffee. I stopped eating after 8pm and I eat six smaller meals a day to help reboot my metabolism. I started off with walking an hour everyday and now I do yoga and dance. But it all comes down to will power. I have a food addiction and I had to also seek therapy. One of my mind tricks is to always leave some food on my plate at every meal… It eventually tricks the brain into thinking you are full. Anytime I want to eat, I go for a walk or work on a project. It’s like anything else you need to change your lifestyle in small increments… And you need to work at it every minute of everyday until it becomes habit.

Speak to a health professional. A GP can provide some advice and guidance or refer you to someone with experience with binge eating disorders who can assist.

Portion control, calorie control & exercise. Lots n lots n lots of exercise. Little to no sugars. Tons of vegetables. Cut out fried foods. Pizza. Junk food. Its a real world rocking lifestyle change.

Juicing can be a good filler. Always drink a whole cup of water before eating. Snack on as many fruits and vegetables as you want. Eat one ingredient foods (chicken,
apple, carrot, ect) no refined sugar or processed foods. Your fruit and vegetables intake should be as close to 50/50 as you can get in your juices or on your plate.

Low carb lifestyle. It’s hard (and a lil expensive), but it works.

Don’t binge eat and don’t diet find a balance, give yourself designated cheat days

Noom, it’s a weight loss app, I couldn’t lose weight for years and would overeat and not eat good foods. I’m about a month into Noom and I’ve lost 6kgs

Well…let’s just say my answer isn’t for everyone.
Move more, eat less.
It’s the only long lasting way I found after trying every diet around. Coming to terms with the fact that I was indeed the problem, wasn’t easy. It was always me blaming my thyroid or some other bs excuse…truth is: it takes a lot of calories to maintain a large body- not to gain or loose weight, but just to stay where you are. I was over 300lbs which means I was ingesting a minimum 5500 calories a day to just stay there. When simple math and some harsh self facing took over, my pounds dropped like a brick. I halfed my meals (use a small plate to make your portion look big…) and started walking 30-60 minutes a day- lost almost 100lbs in 1 year that way. Just walking and eating less.

Other tips
When reaching for food/snacks - ask, am I really hungry? Drink a water then if you still need to, eat.

Stop with sugar drinks and move to water. Liquid calories sneak up on your body in a big way

Be nice to yourself. Some days will be easier than others.

Dont ‘diet’ as such, its on/off. Just cut down, halve anything you would normally eat. Dont count calories, dont eat special diet food or diet regimes. Just eat how you normally do, but halve it.
Dont give yourself any deadlines, no ‘I want to loose 3 stone in 3 months’ kind of goals.
Dont weigh each week, if you can wait 2 or even 4 weeks between weigh-ins. Try and forget about losing weight.
It will be slow, but it wont be hard and this might take the pressure off you. Dont even tell anyone this is what you’re doing, just cut down by half and do some regular excercise like walking or swimming, (forget the gym, that’s dieting unless you go anyway and enjoy it).
Forget about good/bad, on/binge cycles, it becomes obsessive. Just live a natural life.

Pick up a hobby that requires you to put physical effort into
Biking, jogging, working out, a sport, dance classes, swimming, etc

Don’t eat white foods, rice, pasta, bread and potatoes.

I went to a weight loss clinic and they gave me phetermine, completely rid me of my need to binge

Try noom! It teaches you how to eat, and helps work through the psychology of eating. I highly recommend it!

Find an activity you love so that exercise doesn’t feel like work. Diets don’t work for everyone, I suggest a nice daily workout routine

I have a slight issue with this as well and I found that keeping junk food out of my house has helped a lot. I just don’t buy it, and if I do, it’s not a whole box it’s a single serving.

Drink water, exercise, and DONT EAT AFTER 5:00 AT NIGHT. When you eat after 5 it dont digest properly and you dont do anything to work it off, you just lay down for bed. They say to eat your dinner for breakfast, so you have the whole day to work it off. Then for dinner eat a small breakfast, like a bowl of cereal, or maybe some eggs and toast ect.

I joined weight watchers. Over the years, I have tried it all but nothing sticks. For some reason, tracking my points with them really keeps me on track. I’ve learned how to be more mindful about portions and what goes in my mouth. Mainly, I’ve cut out alcohol, sugary things and the kids snacks. I’ve lost about 18 healthy pounds in two months. I’ve never lost weight like this before and kept it off longer than a few weeks. It’s a mental thing. Of course I want to eat what the kids are eating (snacks, doughnuts, ice cream, chips…) but I’m also so tired of being devastated when I try to go clothes shopping. You’ll find something that works for you, just don’t give up. My hobby is running, but also crafting. A mental outlet helps too.

Calorie deficit I been on it for a month and my clothes are baggy on me now stay away from scales though they could go up for any reason xx

Binge eating is usually associated with mental health, so make sure to do things that make you happy and keep you motivated! For my first 50lbs lost I gifted myself with a tattoo, and for 5lb increments I would do something smaller like buy myself a clothing item or decor for my house. I know it sounds silly but it made me love myself a little more when I reached a goal and did something for myself.

By giving yourself grace! You are a human.
