This is my problem. I always skip, and can never lose weight.
Yep, skipping meals is awful, every bite you take after skipping is gonna stick right to your ass! Remember that!
no wonder i got a belly like a balloon
So so true!
What if I don't skip meals, but eat chocolate chip cookies for dinner?
@Renee V. You so made me laugh! :D
I do that for breakfast, Renee... That way supposedly you burn it off through the day, as opposed to sleeping on it though the night.
Far out pIc
Breakfast is the most important mea of the day. You need to eat at leas 25 grams of protein. It wil keep you full longer thru out the day. Try to eat a much lighter dinner but don't skip meals!! Especialy bk!!
This really isn't true. Check out intermittent fasting if you haven't heard of it.
This isn't true at all. Intermittent fasting is where it's at!
Alison/hayley- in my experience this is 100% accurate.
This is actually not true.
I have been my skinniest when I skip meals!
I agree with Haley! I fast for ten hours then eat a small sensible meal went from 125 to 110 in one month :) of course I still do workout! I skipped meals in highschool and was always thin :)
Studies have shown that when/what time/how many times you eat is irrelevant to losing/maintaining weight. Intermittent fasting does a good job of explaining this. It's not about "starving yourself" either.
However if you skip meals and it causes you to get too hungry then eat over your TDEE cals, you will gain weight.
If you fast for ten hours and then eat a small meal that sounds almost like anorexia..
Well, if you are doing IF correctly, you don't eat a "small meal". You eat enough calories (based on if you are trying to gain/maintain/lose). For example, if I am on my IFing schedule of 16/8, I will do a 16 hour fast (from 9:00 p.m. at night until 1:00 p.m. the next day). Then I will eat during that 8 hour time. I personally feel better eating a larger amount of cals at one setting. I feel more satisfied. Studies have also shown benefits of fasted workouts. If you are "fasting" and eating a small meal of 300 calories for your whole day's allotment, yes, that's anorexia. Anyway, look at leangains.com and tell me if the founder looks anorexic :)
So true. Alot of people try to do it the fastest way possible, but when it comes down to health/weight loss you shouldnt have to starve yourself. Old school methods like eating less and burning more calories never goes wrong :)
Yeah the last sentence isnt true. There is lots of pro research for intermittent fasting. It will slim you down like mad. You could always have a high calorie day and fast the day after. Even better!
I eat all the time and when I eat I eat a lot. It's just how I've always been and I'm still 5'7" and 120 lbs. I dance and I work out a lot! You shouldn't have to starve yourself if you excercise!
