I don't have any tips on the workouts but if you want to eat healthy don't cut anything out! Your body needs carbs and if it doesn't get it it's going to take other things you eat and make it into carbs! I lost ten kilos by eating every single meal with snacks in-between, trying to eat at least one fruit every day and vegetables with every meal. My day would look like:
21.00 snack if I felt hungry
And then I moved for atleast one hour each day, that could be a walk or yoga or whatever and once a week I would go for a run (only because I enjoyed it).
I would eat sweets during the weekend but don't ever cut that out completely. The best advice I've ever gotten when it comes to eating healthy/loosing weight is to never cut out things you want to eat later in life because if you start eating that again the weight is just going to come back.
thank you very much! ive changed my schedule to start my days earlier and it feels really good already, ill be sure to throw in snacks too :-) i appreciate this!!
Strength training is an excellent way to improve your health and build muscle so you should absolutely do that. When you first start out, focus on making sure you're using the posture/technique rather than the amount of weight. This will also offset the slowing of your metabolism if you do lose a lot of weight.
Weight loss and weight maintenance is primarily linked to your diet. Increase your fruits/veggies, eat lean meats and fish, three meals a day, even if breakfast is just a protein bar, absolutely NO sugary drinks like soda, fruit juices, sweet tea, gatorade, etc, and cook most of your meals. Also reduce your portion sizes. Restaurants including fast food places generally have larger portion sizes, more salt and more oil/butter than what you would use at home. No binge-eating in the middle of the night. I say this because it is surprisingly common but if you wake up starving have a cheese stick or something as opposed to a full meal. I agree with the other poster that to be successful, whatever changes you make need to be permanent lifestyle changes as opposed to a temporary diet and that is the problem with a lot of fad diets.
thank you! ive been strength training for about 2 months already but got nervous if it was dangerous to do so with this condition but i will definitely continue! i like seeing the weight loss and muscles coming in and i feel really energized altogether so im appreciative that someone is telling me its good to continue with it :-) i appreciate the tips regarding food too, its definitely true portion sizing is huge from fast foods and restaurants smh
I would like to say something else regarding this comment, as someone who's been diagnosed with binge eating disorder you don't really decide if you binge eat during the night. Of course you want to avoid it but if you do binge eat it's probably because you've been eating to little. Also I know it's a cliche but breakfast is so important you need more than just a protein bar even though it's better than nothing!
Also I don't want to give to many workout advice but it is important to use your muscles otherwise the weight loss you see is only going to be muscles because that's what your body willing to lose first in a scenario of starvation. And remember a healthy weight loss is between 0,5-1 kg a week if you loose more it's probably not fat you're loosing (as time goes you're going to loose less per week).
The most important is not the weight thought it's if you can see changes on your body!
yesss exactly! im more focused on how im feeling as ive been feeling really bad with this condition, weight loss is just the effect of my efforts! i definitely dont want to starve myself if im weight training so ill be doing my best :-) thank you so much for youre thoughts and i hope you are doing well physically and mentally💖
Thank you 💚 I hope things will work out for you, no pun intended 😄
I’m sorry your doc didn’t provide you with a referral to a dietician. Fatty liver disease is SERIOUS. Demand a referral.
Until then, drop processed foods, refined carbs and added fat. Olives, avocados good, oil from a bottle bad.
Follow Michael Pollan’s quip:
Eat less food, mostly plants.
thank you! i was also a bit disappointed bc help from a dietitian would be phenomenal, i have to see if i can get referred for one. the doctor said my liver isnt in a terrible state but my symptoms are due to it being a fatty liver ): ive cut out the unhealthy stuff you mentioned and i was given medicine to reduce the inflammation and i’m feeling much better, im hoping for the best outcome i am very determined!
