I apologize in advance if meme is insensitive, I keep accidentally implying things that I don’t mean whenever I make posts on the internet

    I’ve been doing it since January 2020, which is crazy now that I wrote it down. But I lost 100 pounds that way and I don’t know how to be healthy otherwise. I bike, climb, hike, play in three bands and do a pretty physical job, I often do multiple of those things in a day without issue.

    I don’t know where I was going with this, but I don’t find it to be unhealthy, in fact I feel like I was probably closer to death before.

        I highly recommend that when you do you count calories and pair IF with some planned regular light activity. I would go for long walks three or four days a week and that was enough to lose a lot of weight until the gyms opened up post-pandemic.

          I know I can lose weight by counting calories. I can count calories and lose weight eating three meals a day. I’m looking for a way to lose weight without counting calories. I was hoping OMAD would be the ticket.

            Unfortunately not for me, but if it might well work out that way for you.

        Often, yeah. I always ate fairly healthy but I just have no limit that tells me I’m full so I’d tend to overdo it calorie-wise.

        Mostly I’d say the issue was that being heavier made it hard to be active in general. Mentally and physically exhausting being so heavy and stiff, it was tough to get motivated to get out and do stuff. Now that I’m lighter it’s no sweat without pain.

        I also found out fairly quick once I started working out and counting calories by the gram that my BMR is just trash, I burn very few calories on average.
