I am trying the same thing at the moment xD Do you could your calories?? Because you will be surprised how much crap you consume without even realising it!! I recommend you use this tool to find out how many calories you should eat in a day and then eat less!! I wouldn't worry about fancy diets too much buddy, as long as you burn more than you take in, you will lose weight!!


I'm a prettyyy awkward weeb that likes alcohol and punk rock :')

two oreos is almost the same amount (if not more) of calories as a can of coke. and I can eat those things like there's no tomorrow haha. calories are certainly a huge part of it. you provided them with a great tool.

in addition to your cardio, if you can't go to the gym (I understand that is not an option for everyone) do a lot of pushups, situps, pull ups (if you don't have a place at your house go to a local park or something, there should be something you can use) and a lot of those exercises. you might not build the same amount of muscle as if you were going the gym, but it will certainly help and it is better than nothing.

Like the above users you can count calories and track your exercise, using apps like MyFitnessPal or Samsung Health (Android) are both free and they can be used as pedometers and calorie counters. I don't know about other apps but with S Health you can even input the exercise that you do, i.e. if you swam lengths for 60 mins it can tell you how many calories you potentially burned. You can also compare it to other people using the app. Side note: most of these apps are free!

Like Flapjack said if you burn as much as you take in you should be set to lose weight! Cardio is the primary fat burner so running up/down stairs, jogging instead of walking etc can help you burn calories.

Also eating healthy is going to help tremendously!! Foods high in fibre (think kale and spinach) and protein (fish and eggs) are definitely weight loss friendly. Dieting can be hard if you still live at home but even the little things help, like changing a chocolate or salty snack for a portion of fruit or vegetables. Also be sure to drink loads of water or even green tea (if you can) cause it's good for losing weight as well as being really good for your skin and body

Good luck!

It's all about calorie intake. Burn more than you eat and you'll lose weight.

Green tea could really help you, then! Having a cup of green tea or a glass of water before you eat can help you reduce your appetite a little, therefore less calorie intake

Have you progressed since writing the thread? Has anything worked for you?
