So. I’ve been trying to go on a diet for a while, because I’m unhappy with my body shape. Everything I eat goes straight to my stomach and stays there. I eat healthy enough and do yoga a few times a month, but the weight just won’t go away. Anything I’m missing?

Edit: To everyone who responded so quickly, thank you so much! I’ve been avoiding exercise because I’ve grown excuses for myself. Tomorrow I’ll take a nice jog in the morning, and try do one every morning to track my progress. Thank you all again!

    Simple, eat less. Eating healthy doesn't matter at all for weight gain, track your actual calories.

    Weight is mostly related to burning calories. Less food will always result in loosing weight. But you need to round that out with exercise. Yoga a few times a month probably isn’t enough. From exercise you will gain muscle mass which will burn more calories. Try doing something a couple times a week at least. I dropped from 230lbs to 195lbs through exercise. Now I’ve started intermittent fasting, I don’t eat between 8pm and 11am, and it has gotten me down below the 195lbs wall I hit.

    “Everything I eat goes straight to my stomach”

    Are you sure? Mine usually takes a walk around the throat and the esophagus before reaching my stomach.

      I become bloated after a meal if that makes sense?

      If you’re bloating you might have a food allergy. Do an elimination diet and find foods that don’t cause you to bloat.

      Also, simply walking 2 miles will improve your digestion by pushing stuff around in your gut and intestines more. I “de-bloat” by walking. Lots of gas expelled.

  • Sports or martial arts are good exercise, so is vigorous sex. Let me know if you need help with any of them.

    Look for CICO. People over estimate calories they burn with exercise and under estimate calories they eat. To lost weight you need to be at a deficit. Track everything that goes to you mouth for a week. You will be surprised.

    Find out what motivates you and tap into that.

    For me, it was turning the process into a game with an activity tracker. Helped me realize my calorie intake vs output.

    That in combination with exercises classes which taps into my competitive side.

    And for days I just don’t want to get aggressive at a class... yoga Matt outside with a couple of kettle bells.

    What motivates you?

      Dancing is a tiring but fun activity, but I usually only last about an hour before tiring out completely. Although I will take the advice, thank you!

      An hour is great! Keep dancing. Maybe try barre? Variety is the spice. Just keep at it. You’re doing great.

    • If it tires you, then it's working.

      Apple cider is loaded with sugar. That’s the last thing you’d want to consume if you’re trying to lose weight

    You literally don’t have to exercise if you don’t want, although it’s recommended. It’s all about calories. Cut your calories down to like 600-800 for a couple months and you’ll lose 20-30 pounds. And avoid carbohydrates, no breads stuff

      The problem is your brain suffers. You need certain chemicals - fats, sugars etc and when you cut back that far your brain is what starved not the other core functions.

      Keep eating but exercise

    Did you check your thyroid levels or metabolism disorders? Sometimes it could be s medical issue preventing you lose those pounds

    Stop doing yoga and get your ass to the gym. Burn those calories on a treadmill and lift heavy. Eat fewer calories than you maintenance calories. That’s the only way you’re going to lose weight

    1. Chew your food well before swallowing
    2. Count your required calorie intake, cut 20-30% of it and make sure you don't eat more.
    3. Exercise for keeping your body healthy, but don't expect you lose much weigh because of that.

    Once you start calorie counting you'll see how some foods are calorie dense even if you didn't expect them to be. Usually it helps people to switch to a healthier diet, because you'll think twice whether you want two slices of pizza and run out of available Cal's for the day or three proper meals with veggies and protein, and still have a spare hundred for an apple for the dessert. Or big cup of low calorie Americano vs latte, etc.

    No short time diet will give you a long run result, unless you change your overall eating habits.

    Food storage in your body is a simple formula based on calories.

    In-burned = stored

    Sounds like you want to create negative calories most days.

    Muscle is what burns calories so make more muscle. Strength exercises are great for building muscle.

    Do cardio to make sure you’ve got the plumbing to support the new muscle.

    Even idle muscles burn calories. The more muscle you have the more calories you burn.

    Diet is a four letter word. Find something fun that keeps you active and burns calories - then you don’t have to do evil four letter words but you’re more attractive and can do the fun flw ;)

    There is no one healthy eating plan for everyone. Try something like The Whole 30 to get a grasp on what food groups work well and don't for your specific body. Take all nutritional advice with a grain of salt, nutrition science is one of the most junior science fields out there and doesn't show much promise of improving in the short term.

    Also, work out consistently with weights, cardio is a waste of time when weight lifting improves cardiovascular performance more in less time and it will actually give you a well defined body. There's a very true saying I'm probably going to butcher that's along the lines of "lose weight to look good in clothes, gain muscle to look good naked".

  • Do cardio. Swimming is the best calorie burner. Yoga doesn't do jack shit. If your heart isn't beating out of your chest and you don't feel like you're gonna die of exhaustion, you're not burning much calories. Eat less.
    It's not 🚀 science.
