So I struggled forever with more of a mental issue with weight loss then a physical one. Before all my knowledge I thought I could only lose weight through lettuce and fruit. Now, all my friends. (Who are morbidly obese) Have this problem, now of course I've researched it to the max, and honestly. I lost all my weight (Around 10 kilos) And kept it off purely by calorie counting, also with choosing healthy options. For instance, I have chocolate paddle pops, which are 100 calories each, so I might have a few. Along with a can of stew, which is according to the label 5 serves of veggies and shit and it has chicken n stuff. And only 300 calories a can, I also swerve my addiction with coke through diet coke. Now I know to be "Healthy" You wouldn't choose these options, but for my friends, eating under 2000 calories a day I feel could save their life. I admit, I'm only just starting to eat calorie restricted again, I think I gained a few kilos. I'm already down to like 62 kilos. But yeah, I think their should be greater focus on this, as not many people have this will power to eat healthy. I know once I start working out I'll be eating healthier. At the moment I do heaps of excersize and stuff which helps but yeah. Anyways, my point is, why eat healthy to lose weight? What are your views? Weather it be mental or physical? Or purely for good nutrition, and I'm not talking about just average people, I'm talking about the obese.
