How i lost 30lbs in 9 weeks!

Hey all i was just want to know everyones opinions. Okay i recently lost 30 lbs in 9 weeks which averages out to be about 3lbs a week (pretty safe i think). i have went down from 42 inch pant to comfortable 38. lost 6 inches off my stomach. I am not a 100% sure what my calories were i didnt count, i just ate 3 healthy meals and snacked on healthy foods when i was hungry and drank only water. and i am a 19yr old male. starting weight was 248lbs current weight is 218lbs. I read all over on the web that men shouldnt go under 1500 calories when trying to lose weight. i have no lost anyt muscle on my diet i have only got more defined. i dont understand? can people tell me if i did this healthy or not? i think it was pretty healthy i ate good protein low carb lots of veggies and fruits. Any info would greatly be appreciated! also i am going to continue to use this diet and eat this way because i want to lose 30 more lbs is that a good idea? my excersise is i work out 6 days a week with hour long cardio, which varys from stationary bike, jogging and H.I.I.T and mma training.

I think what you're doing sounds good, and clearly its working. As long as you are eating healthy and not starving yourself, then continue to do what you're doing. Whatever it is, it seems to be working for you. Good Luck on the extra 30.

Re: How i lost 30lbs in 9 weeks!

hey thanks CJ.. yeah i am definitly not starving myself... i generally eat when i am hungry. i dont care what people say about eating 5-6 small meals a day. i personally like 3 good proportioned meals AKA: breakfast/lunch/dinner. with a healthy snack here and there. and my results do show that it is working so i just needed to hear someone verify i am doing this the healthy way thanks. also as a note.. sometimes i eat a small snack before i go to bed and it does NOT turn automatically to fat or make u gain weight. sure the next day u might be a little heavier but throughout the week it all works out

Re: How i lost 30lbs in 9 weeks!

Sounds like you are doing a great job. The truth is that a lot of the "rules" of weight loss simply don't apply. They used to warn, warn, warn about anyone going under 1200 calories a day. Then suddenly gastric bypass became all the rage and the medical community completely forgot their rule about not eating less than 1200 a day.

You've found a pattern that works for you. I happen to agree with the 3 healthy meals. If I eat tiny meals 5 or 6 times a day I never have the feeling of being full and satisfied. Stay with what you are doing. You've got youth on your side and making a very smart decision to get things in control now.

Re: How i lost 30lbs in 9 weeks!

if u want to slim down. Dont drink any sodas. Dont eat WHITE CARBS (white potatos, white bread, white rice) eat whole grains for your carbs they will fill you up and give you good fiber. as for cardio. i do an hour of cardio daily, u probably wouldnt have to work out everyday but i like too. and it doesnt matter when you do your cardio just make sure its NOT on empty stomach... eat at least a little something before working out otherwise you risk burning muslce not fat... hope this helps man good luck..

Re: How i lost 30lbs in 9 weeks!

Congrats and what a great job! You did it the right and healthy way! Keep up the fantastic work and I wish you luck on your last 30 lbs!

I also find it a bit difficult to eat 5 to 6 meals a day, especially when they tell you each of those meals is supposed to include a protein, carb and fat! I don't have time for that! I work 9 hours a day! I think everyone should do what works for them. There really are no set rules for weight loss. The only rules are you have to stop eating crap and get up and get moving in order to burn those calories.
