how much weight will i lose on this diet and how quick? and what can i do to stop pigging out on junkfood?
I KNOW THIS IS LONG BUT PLEASE READ IT ITS A SIMPLE QUESTION. PLEASE HELP =]
okay so ive been trying to diet. here’s what ive been doing:
-i ONLY eat when my stomach is growling, that way i know im truly hungry, and not just bored or craving something.
-i only eat enough to make my stomach stop growling
-i DO NOT eat any kind of junkfood, fastfood, or pop, even diet
-i drink as much water as i can every day.
so, for example, in the morning for breakfast, ill eat a 90 cal yougurt or an orange. for lunch at school ill only eat one thing, like a sanwich. then if my stomach is growling when i get home ill eat celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. then if im hungry a few hours later for supper ill eat soup. so in a day, i dont know, but im guessing anywhere from 500-800 calories a day with all healthy food. ive tried EVERY kind of weight loss solution know to man, and after a ton of research about weight loss, i think this is the best diet ive tried. im never starving, because i eat when im hungry, and stop when im full. and when i do eat, it’s healthy.
but i have a major problem. i CANNOT stay with it. i follow it for only a couple days, then when i let myself get hungry, and im in the kitchen trying to find something to eat, i think with my stomach and grab pizza or something instead of veggies or fruits. the main reason why i do that is because i get way too impatient because i dont see results quickly enough.
so i was doing fine and everything, i was following the diet good, and i was so excited becasue i thought this time i was finally going to lose weight. but then when i got hungry, i got really hungry all at once, so i went to go eat, and my mom always keeps a ton of junkfood in the house even though ive asked her a million times to stop buying it, and she had chocolate doughnuts sitting on the counter, and some pizza she ate before. so i started thinking about the last time i had chocolate or pizza, and i started craving it. but then i remembered my diet. then i thought of the same thing that always makes me ruin my diet. i thought, “this stupid diet is making me miserable. i miss being able to eat the foods that i want whenever i want. the diet isnt even working anyways.” then i gorge out on junkfood. im not gonna say what i ate, but about an hour ago, i ate 900 or more calories within about 10 minutes, and i had already ate like 300 calories before. plus, its only halfway through the day. i still have to eat again.
this wouldnt be a big deal if this was then 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd time this has happened, but every time i try to diet, which is like every day, this exact same thing happens. then when i get ready to diet again, i dont even want to because i know the same thing is going to happen. i think it would help if i knew how much weight i would lose on this diet in a couple weeks. that way i would stay on it. SO…
-how much weight do you think i will lose on this diet in a couple weeks?
-what can i do to avoid pigging out (binge eating) on junkfood when i see it?
-is there anything wrong with this diet? will it even work?
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP IM SO DESPERATE TO LOSE WEIGHT!! THIS DIET IS MY LAST HOPE AND I JUST WANT IT TO WORK!! =] PLEASE LEAVE SOMETHING ANYTHING AT ALL THAT WILL HELP. AND PLEASE NOTHING MEAN =]

That’s a bad diet. Too little calories can be unhealthy for you. Your body Is hungry because you eat so little. You don’t need to diet to loose weight, you just need to watch your portion size and eat healthy food. Exercising and eating right will help you loose weight. Don’t think abou how many calories each food has, think what is healthy an what is not, but watch your portion size. Healthy foods have less calories. So don’t think omg this has this many calories, as long as you eat healthy, you’ll loose weight. You also need to exercise, because muscle burns fat. Try walking, then when your ready,run. Just exer use one hour a day. You can loose weight by walking, and if you want to tone your body work on those apecific areas. You could still eat pizza, and chips, but don’t eat like 4 slices of pizza and the when bag of chips. Eat a salad first then eat a slice or two of pizza, the you could go outside and walk it off. Eat healthy snacks too. Like a fruit salad, or a granola bar. Just watch your portions n eat small meals. Have a variety of healthy foods available so of you get hungry, you have healthy foods.

I am seriously overweight and every method of weight loss out there,, it seems my body is resistant to it. most excersises are out of the question do to a foot deformity, my energy and metabolism are low due to a thyroid disorder,various food allergies and hypoglycemia make most diets impossible …i take various suppliments including fishoil and every vitamin known to man, i have tried numerous diet pills with nothing but heartburn to show for it…i am 22 years old with the body if a 50 year old…not just fat but sagging, bent at the neck..i am a single mom so money and time are tight…can’t spend on prepared meals or weight loss centers .i need some simple and relatively fast solutions…i am getting deperate.

I’m eating more meals a day (6) and yet only having one serving at each sitting. So the mini meals will help your low sugar. Because you’ll be constantly inputting fuel. As for the meal servings. Dont overstuff your plate. I have one serving and then throw the rest out! Sometimes i give it to the dogs or the trash can. I’ve lost 15lbs! I swore i wouldnt weigh myself but i had to. And i was so happy!
Something I wrote when I couldn’t sleep, what do you guys think?
(This was obviously edited as I typed it, thoughts don’t go through my head like this at all lol)
We are all children of what we beleive in, so we are all equals, and should treat eachother as such.
It’s time for people to live with love, tolerance, and self awareness.
As Ghandi states, “An eye for an eye will only make the world go blind.”
It is time to live life with love, tolerance, and self awareness.
Every one should live to help with something greater than ourselves.
Ignorance destroys bliss.
TV over time has only created the illusion of good times, it’s all vicarious information. Think about it as if you were the camera man, shooting a scene for Two and a half Men, that would be what I call good entertainment, it’s on a first hand basis and you directly interact with what’s given to you. With TV, everything you see is from a different location, a different time, and it has no interactions between anything. TV allows you to shutoff your mind, and you don’t progress anywhere in any way shape or form. Everything on TV has an underlying theme that allows the people behind it to dilute how you should really be thinking, freely.
Every thing since our birth has been conditioning us to satisfy somebody else’s desire, we’re told to by McDonald’s food because it’s good, then we’re told we’re fat and to buy this weight loss solution book. People today aren’t happy with who they are, they’ve been taught to hate the way they feel inside. We’re no longer happy with who we are.
Instead of having a republican part and a democratic party, why can’t we all be able to determine what is good and human, instead of mechanical and destructive.
This isn’t necessarily what I believe in, not necessarily my point of view, but it seems to be good to think about sometimes. It doesn’t necessarily need to have any meaning for anyone, I mainly wanted to write this down somewhere so I personally wouldn’t forget.

I agree with you in many points you presented because this kind of critical thinking is a very important step in our analysis of the “modern” world, and the human being’s position in it. It shows that you have what many call “media literacy”. However, I describe it as a step because once we manage to surpass that hurdle is when we come into contact with our understanding of our true natures.
We realize that what is projected on the screen is only but a partial reality or someone else’s reality as he/she wants to present it to you, not necessarily as it is. I don’t think media is evil because it has actually taught me this, so I may say it’s kind of a “necessary evil” that allowed me to realize the aforementioned. Not all media is bad, it’s just that we need to learn how to choose what seems true to us and what doesn’t.
While I think your writing has reflected thus, I also think that now that you have realized it you could go on to the next level, which is to analyze self within the world context, and decide which direction you want to take your life; what choices you are going to make based on what your own perceptions of this world are, and not so much those of the others although –like I said–they could have a say as well (advice, suggestions, their own experiences could enrich you).
