  • Can someone help me please :) !

    Okay, so let me start off with that I have pcos but have almost beaten it I think! I recently have been just eating healthy around 1500 cals ( I've been under the weather ) but eating healthy just leads me to wanting to eat more.
    I am approx. 25 % body fat and 160-161 pounds. I have no energy to workout but I want to start going to the gym. I do hot yoga on the weekends. Also, I follow my blood type slightly by not eating chicken, I eat turkey etc ( my naturopath recommends sticking to it mostly ). Any way I'd like to be 127lbs as soon as possible I have such a need to be this weight ( I've lost 19 over the summer ) I really see myself at the gym being fit and 127 and I want to be this way. I also have been craving hard boiled eggs and love protein powders and recipes. Can anyone help me with losing 30 lbs as fast as possible!?

    You could start your workout routine with some basic, at-home, bodyweight stuff to start building some strength and endurance, and then transition this into a more structured lifting program. You can't just jump into the gym full-force if you aren't prepared for it. Start by building yourself up to it. Good bodyweight stuff includes, lunges (can try while holding heavy things), push-ups and sit-ups of various types, prisoner squats, ect. I'm sure you can think of several others to include as well. DEFINITELY get out and go for long walks regularly. Try to add in about two or three hours of light cardio (55-70% of max heart rate) per week if possible.

    As for diet, listen to your body. Eat to satiety and try to learn when that is. You body will tell you. Also, cravings for certain foods may mean that your body needs the nutrition it is offering. If you find you have a craving for protein lately, it may mean that you are not getting enough of it. On the other hand, we all know what sugar and wheat and the like can do to mess up our cravings, so do keep that in mind when trying to figure out what your body is telling you. Lower carb means more rapid fat-loss for most people but this does not always translate to better health. Some people thrive on low or even very low carb diets, other people don't feel well and require more carbohydrates to feel at their best. It is important to experiment with your diet and learn where you feel best. No one can tell you "low carb is bad for you" or that "high carb is evil." You must learn where your body personally feels best. There is no right or wrong here, there is only "I feel great eating the way I do." That is the goal with your diet. Everyone has very individual needs given their genes, body-type, exercise routine, type of job (active or desk-based), ect.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

        Truth.

        If you are 160 pounds and 25% bodyfat, then your fat is 40 pounds and your Lean Body Mass (LBM) is currently 120 pounds. Dropping too far below 20% bodyfat is unhealthy for women- that would put you at 144 pounds. Even to 15% bodyfat, you'd still be at 138, and that's pretty near competition level for figure competitors.

        To drop down to 127 pounds you would have to lose Lean Body Mass (organs, bones, muscle, connective tissues, etc) or be at a dangerously unhealthy low bodyfat- less than 6-7%, which is tough even for a guy. Losing LBM is not a good plan- you'll look anorexic and lose health. It's bad both short-term and long-term.

        TL;DR: No, I can't, as it would be extremely unhealthy for you to do so.

                It depends on your height. For males, they they'll tend to be more towards the top of the BMI scale if they're at their best muscularity and leanness. Females on the other hand will look best 5-10 lbs over the bottom of the BMI scale.

                Anyways, if you want to lose weight fast, you have to keep your calories low for a while. And my idea is you have to make it comfortable to do so. And the best way to do that is to stick to leaner meats and stay away from adding extra oils to your diet such as cheese, olive oil, etc.. Instead, get your fats from your lean cuts such as steak, chicken, fish, eggs, etc.. Lay off of real fatty meats until you're lean.

                That way you'll end up getting more volume of food with lower calories, really filling you up and making you feel stuffed. Also realize that protein cost more calories to digest, like 25% of what you consume, so that means 1000 calories of protein will really be like 750.

                Then for carbs, lay off the sugary and starchy carbs for a while too.

                Also, you can try fiddling with some intermittent fasting regimens. That helps a lot with convenience and satisfaction. Figure out what you like best. Personally I like 2 meals per day the best, lunch and dinner.

                Expect to lose energy while dieting as well. It's inevitable while cutting calories. There's no way around it unless you plan for slow progress. But who wants that? I'd much rather lose the fat faster, then get my strength and energy back later on.

                So as for working out, I don't think you need anything too fancy. I'd stick to weight training a few times per week to maintain muscle and keep your metabolism high. Then do anything else on the side that you want, just to stay active for good health. It could be walking on the beach, or what ever. The main thing is that the diet will get rid of the fat. The weights will help. Everything else is just for fun.

                  what jkr said! I'd rather weigh 175 and look like Xena Warrior Princess than a flabby 135 tooth pick!

                  I'm 5'6" and also have PCOS (and thyroid issues and diabetes). Eat clean, stay active, be mindful of portions, and the weight will come off.
