MD who hates weight watchers. Loves keto and intermittent fasting. According to biochemistry the hormones are the issue with overweight people. Calories are BS.
Hey man it is nice to hear from you, it’s been awhile.
Yea good to hear from you @agent101g
@TheBest’s theme song…
As for calorie counting. It has proven to be effective in my personal experience. Granted these days I don’t do that.
Man that song never gets old. lol If calorie counting works for you that’s all that matters anyways.
Calorie counting works for me. But you have to stick with it.
Counting calories does not work for me, but I drop made weight doing Atkins and Keto dieting. They aren’t easy to do, but after about two weeks and you’ve lost about 15 pounds it’s such an incentive to keep going. No or low carbs is my go to diet.
To be fair, Weight Watchers isn’t exactly calorie counting. Foods are assigned a certain number of points based on their nutritional value, and you get a certain allotment of points each day. Foods like skinless chicken breast, eggs, beans, fruits, and veggies are all 0 points, so hypothetically you could eat as much of those as you want.
I couldn’t stick with Atkins or keto. I was just craving carbs the whole time. I was on Atkins for about 8 months at one point.
Yea I was a little unsure how weight watchers works. You lost 10 lbs in a month on it right?
In the past I went on the south beach diet. I lost 40 lbs on it. The recipes were amazing. Then I started gaining weight due to meds. I’ve never had any success counting calories.
Keto and low carb is unsustainable over the long term for me. And I can’t fast because I have to eat with my meds. So, low calorie is the only way I can go. And it seems to work anyway. I lost 50 lbs. one time doing low calorie.
Yeah. I’ve lost 11 pounds so far.
I think it’s supposed to be high protein, limit carbs, fat. Low sugar, obviously.
Oh, most fish is zero points too.
had some success counting calories and intermittent fasting but it’s probably not the best way to go, I don’t know.
now I just stick to the 2000 calorie/ day plan 3meals and a snack, and my weight is steady. im ok with my weight. starting to see more muscle definition from working out when I look in the mirror.
im high carb but I haven’t been getting fatter. lots of beans, peas, quinoa, oatmeal and fruit smoothies and veggies.
I started calorie counting in mid-March when I started Zyprexa, and I am down 19 pounds and counting. It’s working for me!
I’ve been counting calories but I’m a bit disappointed.
I looked in the mirror today and I look 7 months pregnant!
Got a big gut going.
Looks bigger than before this diet.
I’m about to give up!
Counting calories works for me. U can eat anything u want as long u eat lesser energy then u spend! It"s simple laws of physic.
8 think counting calories just takes discipline and some food knowledge to work. Home cooked meals are a little harder to judge in terms of caloric content.
