How to loose weight within 3 months or more?

How to loose weight within 3 months or more?

Nowadays you see all those weightloss programs like Weightwatchers coming out and saying that you can eat pizza hamburgers lasagna etc on the diets and still lose weight. And that is completely true. What you eat matters, but how much you eat is even more important.

You first need to find your basal metabolic rate.This is the number of calories your body uses per day to perform its basic, everyday, life sustaining functions such as maintaining liver and kidney function, keeping the heart beating, breathing, etc. Thats what you need to just stay alive. For me that's about 2000. I absolutely need that or I will feel weak and tired and eventually go into starvation mode b4 dying. Then if I'm Sedentary all day, like a desk job,go home ,sleep, I'll multiply my bmr times 1.2 (2000 * 1.2) If I'm lightly active (light exercise after work 1-3 times a week), then I multiply by 1.3. My number is about 1.3. So the amount of calories I need a day just to stay the same weight is 2600.(2000* 1.3).

There's 3500 calories in one pound of fat. There's 7 days in a week. So to lose one pound of fat in a week, you need to create a deficit of 500 calories a day in your body. So if I eat 2100 calories a day, for one week, I will lose one pound of fat.

I've always been a 'why' guy. I need to have a scientific explanation of why something works. And when I began to have weight problems I decided to check out the Internet. OMG. There are literally millions of different ways, means, websites, exercises, pills, teas, books, meditations, Techniques. I even saw a weightloss bubblegum. There's is one commonality in all of them though. And that is the caloric deficit, bmr, and exercise theory. And websites like make it easy. You can find how many calories is in a slice of pizza from pizza hut, dominoes, in a cut of bacon, a happy meal, anything! And I lost weight the healthy way.

There was a guy on National Geographic who ate less than he needs, did martial arts training 3-4 hours a day and was still 400 pounds overweight. They couldn't explain it. But they did find out that his brain had an imprinted mechanism that kept his weight at a preset level; like a thermometer on a thermostat. Genetic coding causes that. Who knows, he could've had Eskimos in his ancestry line. They do need the extra fat. And that code, which was dormant in the parent, could have been activated in him.

To me,there are people who are walking up on stairs. If they step up, they'll go up, step down, they'll go down, stand still they won't go anywhere. There are those on an up escalator. They don't even need to try and they go up. But it is a heck of a lot more difficult to go down. And there are those on the down escalator trying to go up. They need to keep moving just to stay in the same place. And they need some real, consistent, gut wrenching effort, just to move up two steps. But you know what, they all reach the top (eventually). Once there, and you step off that escalator, all the odds are now the same. Who would you say is in the best shape?

Good luck!

Is giving up steak and hamburger really more difficult than...?

Is giving up steak and hamburger really more difficult than...?

Actually, yes, it would be much more difficult. I do food storage, so I'm going to answer this question from a bit of a different angle than some of the folks who are answering (getting some good answers, by the way).

My husband and I have food storage. We have over a years worth of food in our house. I've done a LOT of research on food storage, and what happened to people during times of national emergency, when they didn't have food (mostly stuff from WW II).

Interesting things I learned. When people are stressed, they will refuse to eat what they do not know, even if they are starving to death. This is especially true for the young, and the elderly.

If someone is going to do food strorage it is of VITAL importance that they store foods their family is actually familar with, and eats on a daily basis.

As you have read before, I also sell meat goats, and rabbits. People come to my farm, and butcher the animals here. It's rather like National Geographic as come to visit my farm. Customers (almost exclusively male) will come. They will bring their very young sons with them, to teach them how to butcher. The entire time, they will be telling them stories about how their father, or granfather taght them to do this, and where in the village they would do such tasks. There are stories about the importance of the animal, and importance of certain organs of the animal. Very often the child is given a slice of raw liver.

You must realize my customers are students at the local University. Eventually they will be returing to their countries. Most are from central Africa, or the Middle East.

My Saudi customers were INCREDIABLY thrilled (!!!!) to find goats for sale. They had been in the U.S. for 9 months, and found no goats. They were taking pictures of the goat (while it was alive) to email back to their mothers. Their families had been very worried about them, because they hadn't been able to find any "good meat."

It was truelly amazing to see the amount of jubilation at finding goats, so they could finally have the meat they were so use to eating. Please do not get me wrong either. They are Muslims, and have a TREMENDOUS amount of respect for the animals, and want to cause them no fear. They will not allow one animal to see another animal butchered (or dead), nor will they butcher a hungry, or thirsty animal. They are actually quiet kind to the goats and rabbits.

For the 9 months prior to them getting in contact with my farm, they had only been able to eat fish (per their religion). Finding just what they want to eat has made their lives MUCH easier. They feel more comfortable, and happier here in the States, away from their families.

Meat can be a deeply cultural thing. It bindes entire families, and tribes together.

You must also never underestimate the power of "comfort food." Every person has food they favor above all others in times of stress, or sickness. Meat can definatly be a comfort food, especially during stressful times.

I also collect fairtale/folktail books. I have hundreds of such books, with stories from very nearly every country. You would be amazed at how many of the stories center around food, and meat imparticular. Very nearly every culture values it, as something of great importance.

My own family is from Poland. My Great grandfather/mother were the first of my family here to the U.S. One of the stories from my own family is how my Great Grandmother tried to embrace modern American things. She presented my Great Grandfather with a wonderful new American dish...Macaroni and Cheese. You must understand this was homemade, with real cheese, and homemade noodles, rich and delicious. My Great Grandfather took the cassorole dish of Macaroni and Cheese, and chucked it into the back yard, and said, "Now make some real food."

People rarely budge on the foods they enjoy and eat. It's easy to turn down the thermostat, and put on an extra sweater. Another thing altogether to eat foods one is not use to.

Then too, there are also a few people like me, who have been anemic since birth. The iron my body can absorb and use is worlds different than what is absorbs and uses from pills. If I don't eat meat, I not only start to feel sick, I actually get sick. Almost all the foods I eat (including vegtables ) are very iron rich, since it's a must for me.
