Over the period of a month I have lost 5lbs. I'm pretty proud of that.

@DEVILinIRON: A pound a week (a little more actually) is a pace one can keep up for long. Granted if you got 200 lbs you want to get rid of, it will be slow, but if it is less than 30 lbs, it's good. Doesn't wreck yourself energywise.

My friends were big guys like they weight 145Kg and their height was only 5'8, Then they tried the new trend Keto and Intermittent fasting where you remove all the carbs and sugar in your meal! They lose 7kgs in 15 days, Try searching for this trend! Hope it can help :)

Regular exercises and fitness plans and dieting plans make us stay healthy. Need to drink more water at least 3 liters. Regular exercises make us tired and will get a good sleep in the night.

You sound like a spam bot honestly.

The first kg/pounds will come off very easily. It's just water. A number often used regarding how many calories in a pound body fat is 3500Kcal. 7 kg is a little over 15 lbs. Do you think your friends have burned roughly 3500 Kcal more than they consumed each day for 15 days straight?

That's ok.

The rate of water loss can really mess with ones motivation to continue lose weight. Be at the same weight for roughly two weeks or so and then over 3 days lose another 5 lbs.

I went from 280lbs to 217lbs since April 1st. That's not a joke either, I decided to take my life seriously on April Fool's day lol. I went on the keto diet as well as fasting for 47 hours at a time. I eat 1 meal and restart my fast afterwards. I'm not ready to show a shirtless before and after yet but, this was when I dressed up as Eggman for Halloween 2 years ago when I was 280lbs, this is me in that same jacket now.

I've been at 280lbs for multiple years, in fact, I think I was heavier in April. Maybe almost 290lbs or even heavier. I was too scared to step on a scale all last year and this year until I started to lose the weight. I believe in you guys and support you all the way.

Edit: My goal weight is 150lbs.

@-paranorman-: good going man....

How do you feel now, its feel great when you think back to what you were.

Im at 228lbs this moring, so 42 lbs lost since February.

Your weight loss is has been insane, less than 3 months youve possibly 70lbs ?

Incredible how good keto is for quick weight loss.

@thehig1: I am 5'5. 150lbs is supposed to be the ideal weight for somebody my size so, that is my current goal, afterwards, I will start working out to gain muscle!

I feel phenomenal! I can't remember the last time I felt this good. Even in high school, I was already hitting 260lbs. The only complaint I really have is that, I get cold a lot easier now and my old jackets aren't enough to keep me warm anymore, haha.

Congratulations! 43lbs is quite the drop. Keep at it!

Yeah, I have actually lost more since my last post. I am now currently sitting between 212lbs and 211lbs.

Keto really has a lot of benefits for weight loss. Fasting is what is really kicking my fat to the curb though! Nothing will get you into ketosis faster than fasting.

Haha, when I hit 200lbs I will probably upload the shirtless before and afters! Still a bit insecure about those.

@-paranorman-: skins man, my body is not great, fat hangs around in areas you don't want and I have a massive scare down the centre of my stomach from an operation a few years ago.

I fast for around 20 hours a day (on occasion) couple times a week, with my job being active during this time I likely get into ketosis short term.

However Im not eating low carb enough for the effects to be so extreme.

Happy with my current rare, roughly on course to keep pace at a loss of around 10-15 per month.

You dont watch Thomas De Lauer you tube channel by any chance ?hes a big influencer in fasting and keto.

His community are doing a 3 day fast on June 23rd, im giving that a go.

@horgen: there are considerable health benefits, although there are some risks.

The only other time I've met such an idea was among anorectic people. Some of them couldn't return to solid foods after their "fasting" periods. but I guess they had a lot of damage done already to their stomach and intestines.
