There sure are a LOT of weight management tips across the internet, and after my research it appears finding the facts from trustworthy sources is harder than it seems. Heck, I’m a doctor and had trouble verifying a lot of this stuff, so how is someone without a medical degree supposed to find accurate and safe info? Today I’m taking a look at some popular weight loss tips around the internet to tell you what’s real and and what’s not.

  1. My most consistent weight loss has been so far just cutting back on what I eat and 4 mile walks every 4-5 days. Daily meal replacement shakes and 3 chicken thighs. Sometimes at most half a dozen cups of coffee with 2 teaspoons of sugar but this only lasts for 3-4 days then a few days without. Down from 150kg to 140kg since a month ago. Double the thighs on walk day.

  2. Last year I ate so much but so much junk food that I finally hit the "Obese" in BMI chart. After I started fasting, EVERYTHING got so, SO much better. I'm drinking more water and also drink coffee before doing exercises in the morning. Not only I lost 10kg since february but by my blood exams, everything is alright. I'm pretty sure if I had blood exams last year I would be SCREWED.

  3. I lost the most weight when I started to study again at a university after 8 years of doing literally nothing and in a language I could barely comprehend on an academic level.. Was constantly eating all kinds of sugary stuff but my brain just had to work so hard that at the end I got only skinnier and skinnier. So weird

  4. Yes! Because apparently without really trying. I have been loosing weight. So I am trying to loose more. Been drinking a ton of water. Going on a small jogg. To increase my heart rate. However. I love your channel because you tell us what's real. And what's fake. And even give some facts behind why it is false. Or why it is true. And I really appreciate that.

  5. started a low to no carb diet as well walking 8 to 12 miles a day and weight lifting (at home) lost 27 lbs in less than 2 months. strick diet chicken, fish, spinach, baby carats, egg whites, apples, frozen pineapple chunks (sweet to satisfy my sweet tooth). green tea, water, apple with prune juice. some 'forbidden treats every other week so I don't feel deprived.

  6. I personally think my exercise helped a bit with my weight loss journey, but I think it was mostly having activity made me feel way less frequently bored, which lead to me not snacking random unhealthy food out of boredom instictively.

  7. My dude, if you’re regularly lifting weights and you can get all of your protein from food alone, I commend you. Whey protein is never good as a replacement for real food, but it’s usually used to get those extra grams of protein

  8. If you are really weightloss

  9. If you want to eat less, just eat with judgy people. Not only will you feel bad for even mouthful, you’ll also get to see the disgust on your dining companions faces. My grandparents used to do this to me all the time. I have issues with food.

  10. Biggest tip I have as someone who is overweight and losing weight is this-

    Serve your plate then put your leftovers away before you eat. This makes it more effort to go back for seconds, and that minimal amount more effort might deter you from having another plate. This small change of putting the leftover away before I eat instead of after i eat has been GAMECHANGING for me personally.

  11. I like when you admit areas where you need improvement. I've been a personal trainer for 10 years and we are often expected to operate on super human levels in our personal lives and I think this paints an unhealthy picture for our clients. No, I have cheat meals, I enjoy cocktails, my life isn't perfect and that's ok. When you are trying to get in shape it's important to not hyper-focus on the big picture but to take a small manageable task and tackle it. For example, and this is advice I do give my clients with soda addiction: take 3 days and keep a journal for every time you have a soda, take notes on any emotional cues you experience which lead you to drink the soda, and note the time. Then put alarms in your cell phone for the times you naturally go for the soda and only drink when you have an alarm for it. Then after a week remove the alarm with the weakest emotional cue. In the next week remove another. Repeat till your soda intake is at a level you are ok with. Also, opting for the smaller cans of soda or an artificial sweetener-free low sugar soda. Doing it this way will reduce withdraw symptoms, it might even feel good when you remove a new alarm. It's important to understand that you will not be your best self today, but making taking manageable little steps the habit will lead to long term success. If you try to switch to surviving on kale and mushrooms and you hate every minute of it, you will fail. If you add some kale to your salad you might not even notice it's there, right? The little changes will add up, I promise.

  12. Sorry…telling someone to not use whey protein is irresponsible. Whey protein IS food and can easily be substituted for protein sources that don’t fit in the diet and many, many whey proteins have vitamins and minerals that people can use! And don’t skim over resistance training for people…there are so many benefits to adding weight training instead of more cardio training! I’m REALLY DISAPPOINTED by some of your comments, @DrMike! Please do some research on these points. People aren’t getting enough protein as it is…and heavens knows, they aren’t even walking or doing basic body movements, let alone resistance training…and you’re saying it’s not a priority. Shame on you.

  13. It seems caffeine doesn't do anything to wake me up and the "depressant" known as alcohol (as an alcoholic) actually gives me energy… So uhhh did my wires get crossed upon on incarnation or what?

  14. No matter what you choose, diet, exercise or meds. Weight loss is not easy. I recently shared my story on my channel, on how I lost 22 pounds in 5 weeks, which could be really helpful to anyone struggling with weight loss.

  15. here is what worked for me. I eliminated bread, pasta ,beer and fried foods. The weight fell off quickly. unsweetened Oatmeal w/oat milk and blueberries or eggs and sausage for breakfast and i used carb wise wraps for my sandwiches-roast beef/turkey breast for lunch-no chips but soup ok and an apple w/peanut buttter for snacks or oatley ice cream, grapes or strawberries. Any kind of meat and veg for dinner and salads w/any protein you want usually chicken w/oil and vinegar dressing. I carried a lot of muscle and was a steady exerciser but the belly fat was cramping my style and this routine melted that abdominal fat away-also i gave my self a good cheat meal once a week-pizza burger fries etc…and a couple of whiskey drinks to boot but only once/week. pretty easy to do and i feel great at 56..I maxed out at 193.6 and just saw 180.4 after just 5 weeks-w/my height and muscle mass my target is 170-172

  16. So for weight loss should I do hiit and cardio or should I only do hiit? What I was planning on doing was on leg day 30 min on elliptical, on push and pull days 45 min of cardio, and on core days I would do hiit. I get bored if I do one thing to long so thats why I came up with. this

  17. The comment he read about "ruining the food" so you dont eat it. I would like to change that idea. If I have food that I can eat, but that is probably too much for me to eat at that point and maybe the guilt is kicking in making me wanna clean my plate, I have to remind myself:

    "Do I wanna waste this food inside my body, or outside my body."

    Forcing yourself to continue eating is a disordered relationship with food, and it's important to remind myself that if I'm taking care of my nutritional needs, I dont need to finish my plate or those leftovers just because they're there.

  18. The only thing I disagree is HIIT cardio. I mean, HIIT is beneficial in many ways, especially IF you are an athlete. But no, it's not necessary, nor a prerequisite. If you're overweight or have any medical condition, a steady pace cardio is good, and you still burn off calories. With HIIT, it's the same thing. But the thing is, most people are looking forward to improving body composition. The only way is through a calorie deficit, cardio, and weight lifting. HIIT is not that necessary because it's mostly for athletes only. Seriously, more overweight people will be doing HIIT and eventually, they will go past their limits, thus, slowly doing harm to their body.
