I know this isn't 100% /biz/ related but losing weight has helped literally all aspects of my life (including being A LOT more productive and focused). I used to be a fat fuck just 1 year ago and thought losing weight would take tons of effort. It didn't. Here's my "diet":
> go for 30 min walk most days
> drink tons of diet soda (I know it's not good for you but it deals with the sugar cravings)
> meal prep TONS of low calorie food e.g. chicken, broccoli, carrots, pees, spinach etc.
Every time you get hungry you just eat some of the food you prepped in you fridge. If you feel it's too boring just add some ketchup (contains a lot less calories than you think). Stuff like chicken and veggies have very few calories in them so you can almost eat as much of them as you want and still lose weight.
You DON'T have to eat healthy all the time. I still eat/ ate candy and junkfood sometimes. As long you stick to your prepped food for most (but not all) meals/ days you WILL lose weight.
I've literally never felt better, had more energy, been more productive, had more confidence in myself, been happier etc. than now. My depression has gone away for the most part too. And it honestly wasn't that hard after the first 2-3 weeks.
As an added bonus, I save(d) a lot of money on food that I can invest.

If you're a fat cunt like I used to be then losing weight is one of the best investments you can make. Prepping your meals many days in advance makes it A LOT easier.

stop being fucking fat anons. i went from 110kg to 75kg in a year by only eating every second day. shits not hard once you get used to it, hunger goes away quickly. life is so much better and i spend SO much less on food. fasting helps you understand that hunger is a habit, and you don't need to be constantly processing food.

Something else I forgot to mention: Start looking at the calories on EVERYTHING you buy. Some things contain a lot more calories than you think (avoid these), but some tasty things actually contain a lot less calories than you might think (e.g. low fat yoghurt, ketchup, and popcorn).
Hope you make it fren. I'm 26 too.
I'm not an expert, I'm just sharing what worked for me as a normal (fat) dude. I don't think I have/ had the discipline to do intermittent fasting.
You have to do something that is sustainable. Starving yourself for a few days isn't sustainable. Also, for me balance was key. I didn't try to eat healthy every single day and every single meal. Balance ensures that you don't give up after a few days/ weeks.
Thanks. I eat/ ate shitty food sometimes too, but 4/5 days I was/ am at a pretty big calorie deficit so I still lost weight overall. Don't feel guilty when you eat fastfood, candy, drink etc. every now and then. It's part of a normal diet (most skinny people eat that too sometimes). Just don't overdo it.
If you eat a lot of low calorie food like I suggested (veggies and lean meat) then you can almost eat as much as you want and still lose weight. Add things like onions sauce, ketchup, (a little bit of) sesame oil etc. to make it more tasty.

I didn't change my diet at all. Yesterday I ate a full pizza and tonnes of ice cream, today some greasy chicken roll. Going to demolish a bag of chips in a second. Will probably make some tacos for dinner. Just eat 3 normal sized meals and avoid too many snacks. Easy.
Was skinny fat all my life until I decided to work out daily. Went from doing nothing for years to 20 push ups and 40 sit ups daily. Occasionally pushing for more. After 3 months I had more definition than I'd ever had and more energy than ever. Added yoga and more exercises. 6 months in and I felt better so did more, added running.
Here I am today with a tidy 6 pack.

Are you in your teens? I highly doubt someone in their 20s+ with a normal metabolism would be able to reach a healthy weight if they ate pizza and ice cream every day and the only exercise they did was a few push ups and sit-ups. The math just doesn't add up.

Oh, just noticed that you weren't fat before and never said you ate tons of unhealthy foods in the first place lol. "just do a few push ups bro" might be good advice for skinny fat lanklets who already have (somewhat) balanced diets, but it won't work if you weigh 50%+ too much and you eat unhealthy food every day.
If you're a fat cunt then you HAVE TO change your diet. You can't lose weight just by doing a few push ups if you're eating 3000+ calories/ day. Push ups and sit ups don't burn that many calories.

Based. Since May 1st this year I have lost 20 pounds almost exactly by changing my diet habits and working out, working in sedentary tech field as a dev. I want to lose about 10 more and get to about 175 (6’0, then I want to bulk and get fucking HUGE).
I have also stopped taking adderall daily, I have stopped smoking weed, I have stopped drinking alcohol, and I am almost done with cigarettes, still working on it.
I feel better than I ever have at 25 years old. I’m taking vitamins and supplements, and have totally turned my life around. I am also more financially healthy than I’ve ever been, and it’s a direct result of the good diet and cutting the drugs. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.
