If they're not losing weight, they're probably not only eating 500 calories a day.

>> No.10360316

Consider your carb/sugar/sodium/fat intake. As well as your water intake. Also eat a bit more, try around 900 instead, because your body is likely holding onto your weight because its going into panic mode with starvation. If you want to severe cut especially the idea is to put your body on border starvation without peaking below that threshold. Otherwise your body will just eat at your lean muscle which will make you feel like absolute death and low energy. I've dipped under it.

If you aren't already try exercising to kick off your metabolism rate as it will actually decrease making it harder to lose weight if you remain stagnant and cut that severely.

Also take a multivitamin so you don't endanger yourself and your bone density by not getting better nutrition. Iron is an important supplement if you're a woman.

This "starvation mode" myth is bullshit. It would not keep you a large fatass if you're only eating 500 cal. This lie is constantly perpetuated by other fatasses. If OP were truly eating that much, they would be losing weight. I once had to eat 500 calories/day for reasons out of my control and my weight dropped low incredibly quickly.

The simplest explanation? They're not only eating 500 calories. They must be fucking up their calorie counts by massively underestimating the amount of calories their food has.

Kek that "can't gain weight no matter what" excuse is literally an eating disorder coverup line. "Starvation mode" is never going to keep you a fatass. Because in case you never took high school biology, fat is stored energy. Your body will consume that energy. I actually ate <500 calories a day once because I was unable to for reasons out of my control, and I dropped weight extremely quickly.

>> No.10360382

Do you have underlying medical conditions or are on meds that could prevent that? If not then your personal experience doesn't matter. Go google the science on how those can majorly affect weight gain/loss regardless of amount eaten.

Also, I've had to take corticosteroids before.

People's meds "make them gain weight" because they make them hungrier and eat more. If that person was accurately counting their calories, that would not be an issue. Protip: they weren't.

>> No.10360411

You took high school biology which in no way trumps college classes in molecular biology. In fact, people with hypothyroidism usually don't feel that hungry to begin with, but can gain weight excessively fast even eating under 1,000 calories a day.

I've only met one person in my life with hypothyroidism.

People with the disorder tend not to live very long... usually not past middle age. Trying to go in 'starvation mode' only knocks their thyroid out more, but eating causes them to gain weight. Medication helps, but people who truly have hypothyroidism usually have a pretty dismal outlook.

Hyperthyroidism exists too. I have it, and, yeah, I can eat a shit ton & unhealthy, and barely gain weight. It's not good for people with hyperthyroidism to do that though because eventually the thyroid will give up from the overload, and those people then develop hyperthyroidism.

It's a shame you never took college courses past high school biology. You'll never become a doctor with just high school biology.

>> No.10360412

develop hypothyroidism*

>> No.10360413

Also... yeah, someone with hypothyroidism will find themselves at a normal weight eating that little... However, the instant they eat a normal amount, the weight skyrockets back up in days. Like I said, I've only known one person with hypothyroidism.

Humans can't live off 500 a day though. They'll starve to death. The same goes for people with hypothyroidism, and cutting that low long-term only further worsens their metabolism until they starve to death at a normal weight.

It's not a fun time.

>> No.10360414

>In fact, people with hypothyroidism usually don't feel that hungry to begin with, but can gain weight excessively fast even eating under 1,000 calories a day.
Other anon here. I've had hypothyroidism and know multiple people in my life with it.

> People with the disorder tend not to live very long... usually not past middle age.
It is NOT some dangerous disease which kills you in middle age like you're making it out to be. The fact that you're even suggesting that is absolutely fucking laughable! You would know this even from a cursory Google search. Also, if you actually knew anything about it, you would know that it only causes you to gain 5-10 lbs of water weight, which you should easily lose after being medicated. This information is easily available on the American Thyroid Association website.


So all this bullshit about "classes in molecular biology" is just that. You're bullshitting. Please stop making up easily debunkable facts, it's embarrassing. Especially for someone who purports to be educated.

>> No.10360415

Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism are completely different then high and low thyroids.

People get it confused. If someone really has a medical diagnosis of hypothyroidism, not just 'low thyroid', leave them alone.

>> No.10360416

Do you have a low thyroid or hypothyroidism?

There's a difference in the two. I've known plenty with a low thyroid.

I've known only one who's thyroid essentially didn't work altogether hence why they had the diagnosis of hypothyroidism.

You seem to be talking about what they call low thyroid in my country.

>> No.10360417

You fucking retard, they're the same thing. You get "low thyroid" hormone if your thyroid gland is underproducing it. AKA: hypothyroidism.


> Hypothyroidism occurs when your body doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormones. The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland that sits at the front of your neck. It releases hormones to help your body regulate and use energy.

Having low thyroid hormone levels is literally the definition of hypothyroidism. Please stay in school, you clearly need it.

I do, but even if you take exercise and general moving around into account, that still only brings me up to about 1700/day.

Maybe it’s a cultural thing. I know a lot of people who reunited with their families to isolate.

Getting in early and achieving things while you're young makes it a hell of a lot easier, but you haven't missed the boat. Remember people change careers well into their 40s, divorces happen, etc. If there were a time limit on this shit those people would be fucked too. Life goes on, it's gonna be harder now but you can do better. Even if it's just a little better than yesterday, it's progress.

I honestly think we're gonna be dealing with this shit for a while, vaccine development is still a year off, trump seems to be doing his best to pull the wool over everyone's eyes and doesn't care who dies, meanwhile the virus is mutating fast enough such that even those who've already had it can't be considered completely immune. We will find ways to better deal with it and slow the spread, and won't be stuck in isolation forever, but imo large gatherings such as cons will likely be off the table for a bit longer.

What about you start trying to date in your own age range ? As >>10364980 said, unless you're hot or rich there's absolutely no reason a younger woman would want to date you and let's be honest, if you've never been on a date at your age you're most likely neither of those things.

You just said that a 30 year old has it together way more than a 24 year old and you're still wondering what's wrong with your behavior ? You basically admitted that you want to have a position of power over your partner, for fuck's sake. What's creepy isn't the age gap between a 24 and a 30 year old, it's that you're actively seeking for someone younger than you. Also, there is a big gap between someone who's most likely just out of university and someone who's been working for a few years, whether you want to admit it or not.

Well, yes, that’s true, but the only reason anyone would even need to acknowledge that is if they have problems with putting their entire life’s value on having a romantic relationship. If that’s not the case, why even bother bringing that up? Unless you’re a lazy ass who does absolutely nothing or an abusive piece of shit, your chances of having a healthy, happy relationship aren’t 0, and even the above categories can make it happen if they change their ways. People who want something but are doubting their ability to achieve it need encouragement that it’s possible and support behind their efforts, not “or maybe you’ll fail, oh well!” They already know failure is a possibility, and reminding them of that isn’t going to help.

I don't find dating any more challenging or less appealing at 29 than at any other age. Only one person in my friend group is even in a long term relationship, and that is the norm.

Those numbers aren't even correct based on a very easy Google search. Almost all first world countries have a first marriage age (which is what these studies show, not whether or not someone is currently married, so there are even going to be people who got married younger and then divorced bringing down the age range) of late 20s to mid 30s. The United States being at just over 28 is honestly on the lower end of the age spectrum, and I'd wager a lot of that is because of the huge conservative and Christian population it has. It is very, very common to not be married at 30.

you find a person you like a lot and want to spend a lot of time with. hopefully that person thinks the same of you. you spend a lot of time with them and then someone tells the other "hey, I want to be with you for the foreseeable future" and voila, marriage!

If you just mean procreation that process is a lot simpler.

Well, most people start dating in HS or college and build up experience from there. So by mid/late 20s, they know what they want in a long term partner.

I fucked up my entire 20s trying to make a career in illustration so I was painting and drawing 12-16 hours a day, and the off day or two I had a week I'd end up playing video games the entire day. I was borderline homeless on income so I didn't bother going outside to try and get dates because who the fuck wants to date someone who has no money, I couldn't even afford to eat out.

I'm now getting into IT security as a career change and will make good money next year. I also don't think I'm that attractive, some girls have told me I'm a 6-7 out of 10 being brutally honest.

I'm so scared no one will ever find me worthy and I'll never get a nice partner. I don't think anyone has ever been attracted to me either, I've never been hit on before to my knowledge.

Should I try my first attempt at a dating app or something? I was thinking of going to cons to find someone in the 25-32 age range but people on this site are saying 30 year olds are creeps now and it makes me feel self-conscious.

Whats the best way to find a weeb gf and how do I handle things like being a virgin? Do I need to tell them before we do anything and what are some guidelines? Any suggestions on dating sites?

>> No.10366879

Just being honest, an average or below guy is not going to get younger women of any caliber (except maybe single moms). Your dating range should be more like 30-35. If you are open to older women, single moms, overweight women and others deemed "less desirable" than you could do fine on dating apps. They likely won't care that you're a virgin and all that.

If you have a bunch of standards and go for young, skinny, pretty women with no children... well, good luck with that.

>> No.10366880

Your numbers are still below what results I'm reading online. Do you really think I can't Google the same countries you list?

China - 26.3
Cambodia - 22.2
Malaysia - 26.9
Phillippines - 26.7
Singapore - 29.2
Vietnam - 24.9
Thailand - 22.7

And again, these are averages. You take the average age of Malaysia, just below 27, which is the AVERAGE. It doesn't mean that the minute you turn 27, everyone thinks you're too old and no one will ever marry you. It actually guarantees that lots of the population marries AFTER that age because that's how averages work!

Also throwing in a country like Cambodia that has a huge problem with child marriage is kind of making your argument feel a bit facetious in the first place.

They do, idk what those anons are saying. There are plenty of ugly people who are married, being attractive is not the norm. Keep in mind 5/10 is average in looks, so a 3 or 4 is just a bit below average, not even deformed-tier. But if you have really high standards and are expecting to get a 9/10 gf in her early 20s while you're ugly and in your 30s, you won't have any luck.

>> No.10367453

I'm saying the average age overall, not done by gender because there have been both men and women in this thread talking about relationships in their 30s.

There are newer studies than the ones referenced on wikipedia.

And no, I'm not wrong, even if you specifically want to talk about how women do face more pressure to marry earlier than men. It doesn't disregard the fact that even if we used your numbers, those are still averages, and lots of people will fall above and below them. Not to mention this doesn't include couples who never plan on marrying for whatever reason.

And referring to women/men as "females/males" makes you seem more like the person who needs it pointed out that this is the "female board."
