    Yeah, no! You cannot gain weight if you do not overeat and exercise. It's thermodynamics. You cannot create mass out of thin air. So what if your metabolic rate drops (by the way 2000 calories/day is not low, it's normal). Just don't eat more than that. So it IS about willpower. I don't care if you drop to 1500 just don't eat more than that. Oh, it's hard, I know, that's where willpower comes in.

    Just so everyone knows, I'm assuming this is ONLY referring to losing weight too fast thorough extreme diets. If you lose weight slowly, u can achieve your goals.

    changing your diet is gonna do much more to help you lose weight than exercise will. you can eat whatever you want and be healthy; the key is how much of those fatty and sugary foods you eat. keep track of nutrients and that'll help you most.

  • Robert Silvers

    This MD is generally wrong. Once you reach your target weight, you do not need to continue the extreme activity and low calories because you can end your deficit and go into a higher amount of calories that maintain your weight. Is this fewer calories than before? Sure, but you are so much smaller that you don't need as many calories to be full.
    He also said most of the difference in people's weight is genetic. That is also obviously not true because people were not generally fat until the 1970s. That proves it is diet based - mostly how much sugar you eat in convenience foods.
    If you put a thin person's brain into a fat person, they would lose weight and keep it off. It is all about choices.

    Please stop lying. Everyone can be thin but its about loosing weight healthy and changing what you eat. You can't go on the biggest looser loose weight and than go back to big macs. Also less than 3% of people are affected by genetics im weight loss. It's parenting, a child's diet reflects their parents.

    Anyone who has truly struggled with obesity and dieting understands what he's saying. It's redeeming to know that there was a reason beyond will-power of why my dieting failed. I'm going on 15 years of my transformation by eating at a deficit for 6 days a week with a surplus of calories the other day. What this does is deplete glycogen and force fat to be burned for energy and then re-stores glycogen before leptin is affected and begins to de-regulate my metabolism.

    The study done about the show 'the biggest loser' was so flawed that it can't be used as any sort of proof other than 'you CAN lose wieght'. The majority of the contestants go back to their old eating and exorcise habits, but those who kept the diet, exercise up and regularly weighed themselves didn't gain the wieght back because they didn't go back to eating like pigs. Like this whole episode isn't helping anyone

    By maintaining a high protein intake, proper portioning (to caloric need) and following an appropriate workout regiment anyone can become fit and healthy. Ref Dr. Kim university of Toronto, protein synthesis and athlete protein intake review study.
    You can't change your body type, but physique and health can almost always be changed for the better. What this video is saying is that the extreme dieting seen on the biggest losing doesn't work, the human body is an amazing machine, if you treat it right amazing things will happen.

    You see kids, genetics explains most weight differences between people. This is why we had the same obesity rates 100 years ago that we have today. You know those pictures of "circus freak" world's fattest men from the early 1900s that just look like average Americans today? That's just propaganda paid for by the fitness industry. We've always been this fat. Calories in versus calories out is a lie and you should just give up.

    why not just do it at a healthy rate, cut back sugar, include fruits and veggies, work out an hour a day, and don't eat too much before bed time? Everyone's different and it may take longer due to various body issues and you may not shed pounds like a snake, but you at least will have more energy and your organs will be healthier.

    Then there's the people having problem with gaining weight. My sister and I have powerful metabolism's.
    For example, she ate four whole pizza's [ not slices, whole pizza's ] and was still hungry. Didn't gain anything from that.
    People look at that and say "Oh you're so lucky to have that" but it's not as great as people think.
    For the average person's grocery bill where I live, they spend $200 at most a month on food.
    My sister and I spend $600 AT LEAST on food a month. That's not together either, that's $600 each and the sad part is, my sister is actually losing weight still. She's so thin you can see her rib bones.

    You can cycle, you eat what the amount of calories your diet says, and then after some time, it could be every 3 days, or once a week, you eat what you would normally eat, it keeps your metabolism from slowing down, it doesnt completely reset it, but in long term you will lose weight and it will be easier to maintain.

    Ive been more confused about diet more and more ever since Home. EC. 20 mins Adam Ruins Everything and I get:
    - fat isn't the issue, it's the sugar. The 'low' fat will be replaced with lots of sugar.
    You will shred from starvation, but your body will get it right back.
    It's down to genes.
    More veg, legumes, some meats and some full fats.
    Leveled exercise.
    Cut junk and screw sugar.

  • Angry Nerd Bird

    What's neat is how surprisingly easy it is to lose weight if you just make one specific change and stick with it. I cut down on sugary junk and treated my sugar cravings with fruit, and I lost like 20+ pounds.
    But if you slip up and go back to eating junk, that weight comes RIGHT back. Losing weight is easy, but keeping it off is extremely hard.

  • jeramahia123
    jeramahia123 10 месяцев назад

    Yeah. It's unfortunate how unfair genetics can be. You usually fall into 3 body types:
    *Ectomorph* - with metabolism so high, they can actually lose weight by lying in bed all day. Their problem is putting on weight. They burn calories so fast, working out will make them lose muscle mass - unless they eat like 8 whole chickens a day and 5 kilos of rice.
    *Endomorph* - the slow metabolism where just looking at a glass of water will make them gain weight. *Mesomorph* - the assholes with perfect genes we all hate. People born with this body type get ripped muscles without even working out. Most of the Hollywood actors you see on the front of health magazines are this type and don't even need to diet or exercise that much.
    It's sad how many myths there are about "getting into shape" that we all believe in because the magazine had ripped shots of Hugh Jackman and Joe Manganiello. Truth is, Jackman's trainer stated that his physique was probably 80% due to his genetics. In fact, those Ripped 6-pack bodies are only possible by them not drinking any water for at least 24 hours. A 6-pack isn't a sign of great health and fitness. It's a sign of dehydration.
    But, as Adam might say, we shouldn't feel bad about being attracted to people with fit bodies. It's just part of our own genetics. Who we are sexually attracted to is motivated by evolution: we instinctually seek out the most suitable mate who will provide us with the best children (as well as provide for that child and the family as a whole) who will, in turn, be able to attract mates when they are older. It's the same reason we are attracted to money, success, power, intelligence, social skills (humor), large breasts, kindness to loved-ones, aggression to hostile entities, parenting skills, etc. But you shouldn't feel bad about not being considered worthy of having children with. Because having kids won't necessarily make you happy. We are led to believe that having a family will complete us, but that's a myth. Plenty of people live happy complete lives without getting married or having kids or a successful career. We just have the stigma that it will.
    But we also have this stigma that being fat or skinny is that person's own fault, and those who are fit must be admired. When really, they are in less control of their body than we are in control of our height, eye-color, skin-tone, breasts-size etc. And that leads us to feel that the only way we can actually become sexy is with plastic surgery.

    Actually, the genetic component of obesity is generally not considered the main cause of obesity. It is true that rapid weight loss will change your metabolism and can counteract your ability to keep loosing weight or simply keeping the lost weight off. Genetics account for a small minority of obese individuals, bad eating and exercise habits account for the rest. Improving your general lifestyle by taking a daily walk/jog/run and reducing your intake of unhealthy foods and drinks will provide a consistent weight loss and more importantly improve your general health.
