I used to weight 100kg but went down to 90kg (via my method described later) but depression hit me and i got suicidal anyhow i drink a liter of cola a day
(its the only thing that helps me cope and diet soda makes me sick and i need to flavour water to drink it as it also makes me sick which is just as fattening as cola)

But anyhow i generally drink a litre of cola 400 cals and goto the gym and do a workout that generally burns roughly 400 cals (apparently i don't believe you can find out the specifics but i tend to spend an hour or two at the gym doing different things.

The reason i don't lose weight is because i eat alot of food now my problem is everyone tells me to eat for nutrition so i do that but i always feel hungry and it hurts so i eat more to make the pain stop (which is worse then the pain of overdosing)

The way i was losing weight before was i was just doing what i do now but i was eating noodles mixed with a few vegetables (i hardly eat fruit or veg as most make me sick due to texture and taste however with things such as noodles i seem to be able to eat them)

So i was doing this losing weight but people kept telling me to stop and eat more nutritional food so i did and i gained weight and can't lose it.

Now im conflicted because on one hand i know what i can do to lose weight but it won't be nutritionally as good or i can just eat nutritionally good food then suffer to immense pain.

I really just want to stick with what was working Pasta Veg and rice but im not sure maybe others are right and its better for me to be obese and nutritionally better then to be thin again and nuritionally not well off?

Im so confused as it seems like the only choice where i can be thin and healthy is one where i constantly am in pain all the time and i have a super low pain tolerance.

Im going back to doing what was working before but i wanted opinions on the matter.


Alright you listen hear mister, and you listen good, well in this case read. Losing weight isn't about who can get to the finish line first. It won't happen over night or some quick montage like in the movies. Losing Weight is about transformation, a current process not a future goal. Dieting is not for everyone. Your hunky and beefy therefore, you body will need more food.

You love to eat. Good. You love junk food, fine. You wanna lose weight, then lets freaking rock and roll. Diets are not for everyone. Moderation is key for fatty foods. If you order a large combo make it a small, If you eat two sandwiches, make it 1 and a half for example. Replace chips for carrots or even better popcorn. Love bread well go wheat or sour dough. Still hungry, drink a large glass of water first, or eat some fruit then go for the good stuff. Eat more at home that you do drive through.

Indulged on the fatty food once a week or two days out of the week. Shock your body. Just make smarter choices when you eat. If you go cold turkey and eat bland food, of course you will go depressed and suicidal. Food that made you happy is gone completely. Not the way to go.

Get the flavored packets for water, they are amazing and taste good. I love the fruit punch. Light male with lime is hella better than light male. If you can't give up certain things, then have a portion control. Still hungry? Again start or finish with a healthy alternative.

Make sure your committed to working out like walking for example. Remember the more you work out and are active the more hungry you wll be, its like driving and gas.

Got any questions? You and I are in the same boat brother.

If you really want to lose weight, then I suggest you to bring some changes in your daily routine. Don't start dieting to shed weight. Rather eat healthy from livre régime. You can also check here https://www.cellublue.com/fr/product/mydetoxtea-mycellutea/ about thé cellulite that will prove efficient in weight loss. Also, take regular exercises to lose body fats.

I think you're having too many pointless calories. It seems that you are addicted or at least somewhat habituated to drinking soda and eating unhealthily. Being in pain when not eating and being sickened by healthy food is a telltale sign that you need to change. Better sooner than later, since you're still young and don't want to wait until your body is older and less able to recover.

Cutting the sugar is one of the best things you can do. I suggest drinking calorie-free stuff. People complain about the chemicals but I think this is still healthier than having soda and a bunch of sugar. Drink lots of water. If you simply can't do without a soda, get reduced sugar, at least. The flavor can held you hold out. Just don't drink the original with like 23 grams of sugar per serving.

Rice and pasta are cheap filler with little nutritional, but they are acceptable in the morning when you need energy for the rest of the day and will end up burning it throughout the day if you have them for breakfast. You should eat lean protein that keeps you full for longer. Stuff like eggs, lean meat, fish, etc. Soups are also good, as they are mostly water and help you feel fuller on fewer calories.

But keep in mind it is very hard to go from an unhealthy diet to a fully healthy diet that's half the amount of food. You need to set weekly and monthly goals and slowly build up toward becoming more healthy. No need to kill yourself with 4 hours of exercise a day, either. You will become tired and stop. Exercise maybe 3-4 days a week for just 30 minutes per session and then work your way up. Choose to walk rather than take elevators, drink a glass of water a few minutes before each meal to fill yourself up, limit sugar as much as possible. Eat less on days during which you exercise little or not at all, and try to view food as fuel for your activities. No activities = no need to ingest more fuel.

Good luck.

Out of everything that has been said about "dieting", what is said above by Ryulightorb is right on the mark. Its all about lifestyle choices.

I hope to clear some misconceptions about weight loss for you.

Contrary to popular belief exercising alone is not the way to losing weight; exercising is good for maintaining the body (after you reach peak maturity, around age 30, your body starts to break down for reasons only god can explain) NOT for losing weight - In fact you could end up gaining weight (in muscle mass) without even realizing it (exercise is not a numbers game). That being said, it is not a bad thing to exercise as long as you get to moving in one way or another (in the modern world, people don't move as much as they should), it doesn't have to be in a gym, it could be as simple as enjoying a walk in the park.

In magazines they usually say something like, "Go hard at the gym to boost your metabolism" or, "Eat certain food to boost your metabolism". The first thing wrong with this is that exercise will prioritize certain functions and metabolizing is not one of those needed functions for exercising. Second, what magazines should say about food is that certain foods are easier to metabolize, there is no "boosting of any kind"; Metabolism is not about burning calories as I will explain in detail below.

It is incorrect to say that people have a metabolism, this leads to a bunch of misunderstanding. It is true that your body has a "metabolism" but this is not a magical spell that burns calories. Metabolism is a process that happens in your liver; After you eat food it goes into your stomach, the stomach's job is to break your food down even further in to smaller bits, then into your small intestine it goes, here is where food is broken down even further into particles, the unusable waste goes to your large intestines and out the anus, but the usable parts will go to your pancreas and liver. The liver is where the magic happens (I mean magic in a metaphoric way), the job of the liver is to convert or transform whatever chemicals comes it way (food is a chemical too) and assigns it to wherever your body needs it (This is metabolism in a nut shell, it is a bit more complex than this). The process of metabolism happens at all points of the day, but particularly more at periods when you are at rest. Your body metabolizes what ever comes its way, this too includes fat and muscle (Only in an emergency will fat and muscle be metabolized for energy so be careful with this knowledge).

These things I recommend to you:

Diet wise; "Dieting" in the sense that one should eat a specific way is not correct way to diet, especially by way of all the fads you hear celebrities recommending these days- I highly recommend not following these (especially) on a whim. You say you can only eat pasta and rice, I can't stress enough that this is NOT nutritional bad for you (in fact having plenty of carbs will aid you if you plan to do something like running a marathon), the human body needs nutrients of all kinds from a variety of sources, it is however not a good idea for you to only be eating this purely for losing weight especially if you plan to sustain yourself on this alone; sure it leaves you full and gives you much needed energy (I hate to say calories), but its like filling up a car with gas and neglecting to change the fluids - the car will run but it will start to break down eventually.

I highly recommend cutting down on your intake of sodas as soon as possible, not because it is high in calories (calories are not a bad thing) but because it is terrible for your health in general. I too like sodas but they are to be treated as you would treat wine (this is a personal message to all the housewives out there that drink wine because its "healthy": Call it what you want, that doesn't change the fact that you are an alcoholic!). The problem with sodas is that it is hell on your liver because of all the sugar and other chemicals found in soda (You can't live without a liver, and remember what I told you about the job of the liver). Do not substitute with "diet" sodas or sugar free sodas, they may say zero calories and zero sugar on the label but when soda companies cut the "sugar" out of their product, it tastes really bad and so to counteract this bad product they add sugars from other sources to make it taste better (this is intentionally misleading to sell their product as a "healthier" alternative); even though there is no "sugar" in the soda they are not legally obligated to say that artificial sweeteners are sugar, even though it totally is!

I am not a clinical doctor, so I can not give you a diagnoses nor can anyone in this chat room. I see that you are seeing (or were seeing) a doctor, but I believe that your are only seeing a general physician. I recommend seeing a Physician Nutritional Specialist (this may take a bit of time to find but will be worth it).

To sum it all up, remember: Exercise in the traditional sense of going to the gym is not the answer to losing weight, it merely supplements a healthy lifestyle. The metabolism that magazines describe are a myth, metabolism happens regardless of what you eat and at any time of the day. Ignore what magazines and celebrities say about dieting, these are what you would call in the cyber world - "click-bait". Cut down on your soda intake as well as your overall sugar intake, and see a Nutrition Specialist if you want to know more about nutrition.

I didn't mean to make this a whole essay but I hope this information is of use to you and your dilemma.
