If I'm eating the right amount of calories to lose weight…

Can I Eat Anything I Want & Still Lose Weight?

eat what you like and still lose weight?

Yes because…

You lose or gain weight based on how much or how many calories you eat and NOT What You Eat.

This is how you gain weight

Let's say your metabolism burns 2000 calories per day or your body only needs 2000 calories per day to maintain your current weight but you constantly eat 2500 or 500 extra calories everyday then you're going to gain weight because your body takes those extra calories and stores them as fat and it DOES NOT matter where those extra calories you eat comes from.

So if you eat too much or too many calories (of anything whether it's healthy or unhealthy) you're going to gain weight.

This is how you lose weight

Again, let's say your metabolism burns 2000 calories per day but you constantly eat 1500 calories per day then You're going to lose weight because you're not eating enough calories to maintain your weight.

Whenever you don't eat enough calories (regardless of what you eat) your body will burn off your bodyfat for energy (causing you to lose weight) to make up for the lack of energy/calories you're not eating.se

I am 35, 152cm and weighed 49kg in week 1. I have been eating a chocolate snack (around 100 calories every 2 hours, 6 times a day to keep off hunger and one savoury weight watchers lunch (around 150-170 calories) per day. I am therefore eating around only 800 calories per day which I find hard as before that I was eating whatever I liked. I go to the gym twice a week and burn around 400 calories each time.

Initially I lost weight very fast - by week 2 I was 47kg and by week 2 I was 45kg. After that though, I put on a bit of weight and have been stuck on 46kg since then (now is week 5) and cannot seem to lose more. What am I doing wrong?

My ultimate goal is 43kg as that is what I was pre-pregnancy and I am very small and like to have a thin rather than average build. I have such a sweet tooth and love carbs so cannot stick to a low carb or traditional diet. I just don't understand why I was losing weight fast at first and now I'm just stuck. Can you help?

I'm 5'4 male. Currrently at 126.8 lbs . My goal is 119.4 lbs. I'm doing this so i could lose my love handles and tummy bump. I also workout 6x a week (Hiit treadmill, leg raises, oblique crunches, planking). I also limit myself to 1500 calories/ day. I can't seem to balance the amount of carbs i take/day but it doesn't exceed the 1500 calorie a day diet. Will this impact the body goal that I'm aiming for?

carb content will not affect fat loss goal. only too many cals will do that

I'm a gymnastics instructor and have only been doing it for less than a year. I haven't weighed myself during that time but I have definitely lost fat and gained muscle. I also work day care during the day a few days a week. My job has definitely caused some foot pain and sore muscles, like my back and shoulders. However, I have found that I feel more sore and tired when I took vacations and didn't do my stretches or work out (my workouts aren't exactlt work outs, but some lightish tumbling and back bends and stuff). My advice is to stretch and work out your whole body with calisthenic exercises. I used to be nearly obese, now Im still slightly overweight but my body doesnt hurt like it used to when I would rest all the time when I was off work. I think your soreness isn't as much from work as it is from rest. Surprisingly my back and neck feel much better doing backbends and pike sits and stuff than it does if I haven't done them in a while. And I hadn't done those things for many years before I started doing them again in my classes I teach. The people I most often see complaining about body aches tend to be those who are more sedentary.
