I decided to lose a lot of weight during my senior year of high school, I went from 285 lbs to about 180 lbs by the end of my freshman year of college.

Calorie counting and exercise should work unless something is wrong with your body.

If you're eating too much, try adding some meat into your diet, some foods will go right through you, but meats will leave you satisfied for a while, it's also good to try to get your body adjusted to eating less if you have a habit of eating your heart out.

You should be fine eating whatever the hell you want as long as you're (accurately) counting your calories and making sure you're not going over whatever your daily limit is.

Hmm, well I go from being overweight to skinny based on how often I work out during a given semester or how busy I am.

If there is anything I could recommend to the OP it is to avoid drinking beer often, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables (helps quell hunger, low in calories and obviously good for you), mix weight lifting with cardio to better your metabolism, and give up soda already or you will never fix your weight problem.

I'm down about 15 lbs since last year from eating better, doing weight lifting, jui jitsu and running.
Giving up soda and beer was easily the hardest part for me though, but actually getting anywhere was basically hopeless otherwise.
If you need the caffeine fix stick to coffee, not nearly as bad as long as you don't go super crazy with sugar.

One final word of advice, stay the hell away from microwavable crap (i.e. pizza, breakfast sandwiches, anything overly "fake", etc.) that stuff is loaded in fat and god knows what else and is easily what screwed up my weight while I was an undergraduate in the first place.

what would you recommend instead of microwavable stuff for someone that doesn't like to cook and doesn't have time all the time.
Most foods i eat are premade

Processed foods are the worst. If you say you have no time, you have to make time.

If you have time to post on the forums or go on Discord chats, you have time to make yourself something to eat. Buy a George Foreman grill or something like it, buy some chicken breasts, season them and just grill 'em. Only takes around 6-7 minutes to cook those. Have them with some veggies (e.g., brocoli, spinach, kale, green beans, asparagus, etc.) and rice and you have a high protein meal that's low in calories but is dense in nutrients.

I would rather avoid cooking aside from meat im happy to cook meat and rice.

So i should just eat raw foods if i dislike cooking (edible raw foods that is)?

but if it's a must i guess ill have to cook

Can't really speak for raw food. The only time I eat raw food is when I'm at a Japanese restaurant. I've never tried raw veggies.. I always steam them or put them in a stir fry.

All I gotta say is you're gonna have to sacrifice something if you want to see results. You may have to sacrifice a few things. It's all a matter of how much you want "it". If you want "it" bad enough, you're going to do whatever it takes.

Hmm, I also don't like cooking. Well, good old PB and Jellies, Steamers vegetables (microwavable, not fake, exception to the rule), salad, tuna, pasta (ridiculously easy to cook, minimal effort), deli meat sandwiches, apples, grilled chicken (can throw on salad too), cereal, some can stuff (although in moderation due to salt), bagels, toast, oatmeal.

Most stuff you can get at the supermarket, leave it in the fridge and make fairly easily.


Tbh, my life is somewhat easy since I'm from a huge family and there is usually something leftover by the time I get home from work since people are always coming and leaving my house

It is definitely more inconvenient than microwaving stuff or living off ramen, but if you want to get weight down its probably the most effective dietary change you can make, and I speak from experience.

Every weight loss method is good and effective if you get benefit from it. For weight loss my friend is taking thé detox tea. I found this site on the internet and I am also thinking to go for this to lose my weight and fats. I also heard from my friends that élastique fitness is a way to shed weight.

I had the same problem for a very long I used to weight over 318 lbs or 144 kg(lost 35+ lbs) :D
my trick is definitely was stop drinking soda and drink water plenty of it too i still pretty much eat the sames foods i eat
the truth i really hate working out but i did find a exercise i actually enjoyed which is cycling(i usually ride 30-50 miles per week)at first i couldn't even do a 10 miles per week)
and i had to make a diet so i fast two days a week during those two days all i have is small snacks and water(you can also have a soda every once in a while just to satisfy your taste bubs)
and i feel i was in the same shoes as you are now its just take time

It's an oxymoron to drink a litre of soda and then question why you aren't losing weight. I drink like two sodas a day. I used to drink less when I was losing weight. I didn't go to the gym once, all in all I lost like 85 pounds, then gained 15. Now my weight is pretty consistent around the 'average' side. I could eat less and lose more but I am content

Avoid bread and dairy products. Avoid added sugars. Eat protein and vegetables. Maybe use some if these guidelines:

Honestly it sounds like you have an enzyme deficiency, and you might not be digesting all your food adequately.
**Stomach pain.**
Foods high in enzymes may help. Things like good mineral balance versus proper water intake might loosen the body and promote bone nutrients, especially considering soda.


I see a few options here, none of them fun.

1. Walk 10 miles a day, up hills, down mountains, and do it with a minimum of food, and water. Add a 30 pound pack. Do this for a year. (I've tried this, it works.)

2. Swim constantly, or at least spend a full hour in water, physically moving everyday, for a year. (I've tried this, it works.)

3. Enter the hyperbolic time chamber, and find out what works best. (I have not tried this, would like to.)

4. Paleo diet, or hyper specialized macro-nutrients and high enzyme diet. (I've tried this, it works.)

5. Wear 10 pounds on each leg; 5 out of 7 days a week, for 3 months or more. (I've tried this, it works.)


Other ideas:


Get protein powder and use that to switch up with meals. If you're feeling like being full helps get an appetite suppressant that uses fiber to fill you and give you nutrients. (Be very observant about fiber sources, if it's from something that is originally a sugary fruit, avoid it.)


Switch to a drink that isn't sugar. Including fruits and juicing nonsense. No offense, to those who succeed...
But if you're bleeding chlorophyll, whats' the point?


Greens, though entertaining when going to the bathroom, are best reserved for soups, pastas, and rolled flat bread pitas etc.

Carrots become sugar, which is the biggest problem with any vegetable that is not obviously greenery.

Eat every type of cabbage, and radish that has ever existed.


Prioritize nutrients over bulk. Devour anything with lean fats and protein; fish, soy, cashews, hemp protein.
It seems that the fats you might be eating are not lean, and in doing so, take forever to digest. Many nuts, and other types of protein are not lean fats and proteins, which is really important.

If I sound like an ass, I'm a jerk when it comes to nutrition in general. I've seen people stuff themselves with butter and crackers, and wonder why they're not losing weight, and talked to individuals who can't understand that the body needs electrolytes, minerals of all kinds, to even convert food into energy. (These people are just self harming to some extent that is mildly indicative of desire to leave a very ugly corpse.)

Most importantly: Rest only when you need to. I walked 10 miles a day covering about 1000 ft of elevation and across sand on beaches with my pack, it was grueling, but worth it.
