  • It does NOT matter WHAT you eat or WHEN you eat as long as you're eating -to- calories per day but…
  • You may eat 3 BIGGER -to- calorie meals every 4-to-5 hours or…
  • You may eat 4 BIG -to- calorie meals every 3-to-4 hours or…
  • You may eat 5 smaller -to- calorie meals every 3 hours or…
  • You may eat 6 tiny -to- calorie meals every 2-to-3 hours &…
  • Drink at least ounces of cold water everyday and remember this important fact…

You can eat WHATEVER you want & still lose weight (see why) as long as you're eating -to- calories per day.

  • Eat less than calories per day to Lose Weight Extremely Fast. The less calories you eat = the faster you lose weight but its harder to lose weight permanently on a very low calorie diet (why VLCD don't work)
  • A cheat day only happens when you eat more than calories. Cheat days are defined by NOT WHAT but HOW MUCH you eat.
  • Use 1 of these tools to track your calories.

I weigh 212 and have used weight loss supplements and don’t eat too many calories most of the time and usually just gain weight. I have both endometriosis and PCOS both which make you gain weight. What can I do to loose weight having both of these issues?

I'm 5 ft 8 and 177.2 pounds. I started at 184.4 pounds just under 3 weeks ago.

I usually eat about 1500-1900 calories depending on the day. I'm lifting heavy 3 times a week and doing mild cardio (200-250 calories burned) 2 times a week. I'm currently at 27.5% body fat. Any changes I should make or am I doing it right?

My day 1 weigh in was 188 pounds at 5’4 and I plan on weighing in again in a few days. I started days 1-5 burning 700 calories a day and eating around 1,200. Days 6-8 have consisted of burning 1,000 calories every day and consuming 1,200 calories. My goal for now is to reach 150 lbs. How fast do you think I can lose the weight and reach my goal if I continue burning 1,000 every single day (doing HIIT and weightlifting) and eating 1,200 calories?

start off with less than 2000 and simply go lower every 3-7 days if you're not happy with the results

It does matter what you eat. Not necessarily for overall weight loss, but so people don't become malnourished during the process. Especially if they are exercising and dieting. Eating a bunch of carbs and sugar that amounts to 2000 calories is not the same nutrition as eating protein and veggies that add up to 2000. Protein is even proven to help with weight loss if paired with exercise.

TRUE: it does matter WHAT you eat for your overall health (youre right)

FOR FAT LOSS: it does not matter WHAT

Carla Kukesh

Hi! 52 years old. 5'5". 160#'s. Ever since I had a complete hysterectomy, I've gained weight. I can't eat very much protein without getting stomach pain since my gall bladder was removed. I average about 1,000 calories a day or less. I do Jazzercise twice a week and strength class twice a week. I haven't lost a pound or inches. What do I need to do?

February 17, 2019

Adrian Bryant

how do you track those calories because on the 1000 ALONE you should have lost a lot of weight

Paula N.Nowak

On the weight loss calculater it states the activity level and how many times per week do you exercise but how many minutes of exercise do you need to do in one of those times. For example if I exercise 3 to 5 times a week, how many minutes of exercise should I do in one day ??

February 09, 2019

Adrian Bryant

at least 30 minutes of moderate activity

Hey! I’m 187 and my goal is to lose 30-40 pounds in 3 months. Is this amount obtainable, if so what do I need to do to jumpstart this weightloss?

Raven

Ok so im 5'2 and 176 pounds im eating 510 calories a day is that bad for me trying to lose weight??

January 19, 2019

Adrian Bryant

not bad for fat loss but it's probably bad long term b/c you probably wont be able to maintain that super low intake for so long.

Its best to simply start off with less than 2000 cals + being more active OR...

eating the amount listed in the calc on this page

I just wanted to tell you again how very much you’re appreciated. I had given up hope but doing exactly what you said has caused the 20 pounds I’d gained from PEANUT BUTTER, to fall off:) God Bless you!
