Just weighted myself about 2 hours ago, my weight was 72.6 in kilograms, and my height is around 1.64 in terms of meters. Which to calculate, it is 27 in BMI, which is your average overweight, and I am 20 years old, which is considered being an young adult.

To tell the story, about 1 or more year ago I used to eat pizza everyday, which is the reason for my weight gain and my weight is used to be like 83 kilograms (Height is same, 1.64 meters).

I stopped eating pizza completely, and started to do exercises for a good 1 year, my weight got reduced to 69 around something kilograms, though instead I started to eat fast food such as burgers in any restaurants (Including MacDonalds), and I still drink hella load of Coke.

This is how I exercised, and to note that I used to make several changes in my exercise schedule.

So yeah;

* Get outside and run for a distance of 1 kilometer (Or less I think, not sure).
* Then walk to the nearby park where there are exercise Facilities, where is that one where you need to hand yourself with your hands down and move your legs up - down, I did it for many months untill I canceled it and exercised just at home.
* In home I needed to do recumbent, and those passive exercises where you hold your entire weight with your hands elbows, and I sure you get the rest.

But later on I just dropped doing exercises about at February I think, maybe call me a lazy fat fuck on this one, but just so you know that all of this exercising stuff is just feels like too much of an forced thing which makes it feel like not being worth the hassle. I tried resume it back, but I quickly gave up. I don't really wan't to be stuck doing exercises for my entire life which would just easily-quickly cripple out my willpower.

It's not because I hate going outside, I do encourage myself to do so as It's a fun activity or meet up for a good trip or something that is actually important, rather than running outside for just a 10 minute exercise and making myself look like idiot in-front of strangers.

I'm actually not that fat in terms of looks to be honest, except that there is a little bit of an fat on my belly and my face is slightly inflated.

All I desire is to have an healthy, slim body (Having muscles is not important to me really right now). Maybe perhaps toning/cutting out the Burger, Coke, chips and other kinds of unhealthy food consumption will help with that? Maybe it is indeed that those exercises are just useless forced schedules?

No refined sugar - this shit is addictive and bad for you.

Loads of veggies/fruit, protein (don't overdo it), good fats (grass fed butter, olive oil, coconut oil are all good sources of fats).

Check for vitamin/micro-nutrients' deficiencies; some deficiencies affect metabolism (notably iodine).

Limit refined carbs; try and get most of your carbs intake from complex carbs i.e. whole-grains, sweet potatoes, brown rice etc.

Exercise is good, but it will do little for you if you don't fix the root cause, which is diet.

Its mostly diet yeah. The diet is more than food, too. It's the music, tv, etc you consume. Some people drink coke for example because they see a commercial for it all the time. Maybe the polar bear appeals to their emotions, who knows. I think soda is the absolute best to cut out immediately and for good. Try mixing things into water if you're bored from water. Ice, lemon, cucumber, or get creative. Share your creations with friends and create a logo for advertisement to compete with coca cola. Go out of your way to put coke in its place, because of the harm it caused you. Take it personally. Make sure your friends drink your stuff and not coke. Be yourself, not a coke fanboy.

What is the reason that you eat fast food? That will help. Do you know how to cook? Do you think you dont have time to prepare your own food, or is it simply a taste thing.

The easiest way to control your weight, especially if you're only slightly overweight, is moderate daily exercise (at least five days a week, but it can't hurt to do seven) and caloric restriction. Find out how many calories it takes to support your current body weight with your current activity level, then how many it will take to sustain your desired weight. I do recommend a balanced diet, as this will make you feel better and stay healthy overall, but your diet's makeup will not affect your weight gain or loss, your net calorie intake will. I recommend a good daily multivitamin (unless you have a deficiency you don't need more than one, you're going to pee most of it out anyway), as it's impossible to get all of your necessary micronutrients, no matter how good your diet is. Don't feel like you can't eat junky food every now and then, as long as you stay within your daily caloric limits. Your weight loss will be slow but steady, for most people this is the best way for sustainable long-term weight control, and it's arguably one of the easiest.

As always though, before making any major dietary or lifestyle changes, please consult with your doctor or licensed dietitian.

Both obviously. Being more lightweight gives advantages; You can run for longer without experiencing fatigue after running 100 meters because of my weight. Plus being overweight gives bad pressure on your body overall which is bad for your health.

As for girth, getting rid of it too also would be very good because I as I said before, I want to be healthy and look slim, and able to sit without my belly turning into mishmash because of the fat.

Animal fat is better for you than refined carbs and sugar, especially HFCS. HFCS is the devil and is the most common sugar used, often in unexpected products but also, in expected products like sodas and juices.

Generally speaking, calorie calculations are based on your age, current weight, activity level, and biological sex. This produces a rough estimate of how many calories you need in a day to maintain your current body weight. Again though, this is a rough estimate so there will likely be slight to moderate differences in what you actually need. I, for example, have an extremely slow metabolism, and will often eat significantly less than what my estimate is, without losing weight. As I mentioned in my original post, a dietician or doctor is your best resource.

I’m no nutrition specialist, so I’ll talk using my personal experience.
I have always been on the border of overweight. In June 2018 I was 177cm for 78kg, thus having a BMI of 24.9, 25 meaning overweight. I lost 7kg by working around 12-16 hours a day for a café seller in a festival for a week and two weeks for another company where I worked standing. I really felt the change when I had to shave and cut myself on my jawline. But working wasn’t all I did, I drank nearly only water and ate 3 meals a day and fruits at 9am.
A year later, despite sitting the whole day and not exercising a lot, I’m still around 70-71kg and still don’t exercise a lot. I just started a Bodypump course last week. I still go to McDonalds, subway or a local kebab a few times a month. I went to a Chinese restaurant with coworkers and ate two plates while they only ate one, and I then still went to the supermarket buy a slice of pizza and a tuna sandwich.
What I’m trying to say is, in my case, that I didn’t have to do any strict diet to lose weight, I just stopped drinking soda and ate more fruits. I still eat sugar, I love Haribo. But with all the sugar that is in a coke bottle, and admitting you drink like one or two a day, you drink as much sugar in a day as I drink in a month. I believe entirely stopping to consume something is not necessary, like when I go to the restaurant, I still drink sprite.
There is also something with hormones and sugar going on, but I don’t want to bullshit you, because I’m not sure of what I’m talking about. However, it’s something really interesting and if you are motivated, you should go do research about it.

Historically many people have starved to death.

I only was severely overweight once in my life, between march 2017 till about December 2018. (the freshman 15 did make me gain weight however it worsened in my sophomore and junior year of college).

I sadly forgot my past life / reincarantion though I remember eating so much between that time span. When I started to forgive people for their mistakes, it did help me lose weight. Though I admit, I felt much colder in the winter weather.
Now in 2019 if I were to do it again, I would take a blood type or follow a diet based on blood type, especially if its B or AB. Though more people are blood type O and Blood type A

AB-negative (.6 percent)
B-negative (1.5 percent)
AB-positive (3.4 percent)
A-negative (6.3 percent)
O-negative (6.6 percent)
B-positive (8.5 percent)
A-positive (35.7 percent)
O-positive (37.4 percent)

However, blood type O's are not given good advice for weight loss in this blood type diet, since its mostly cut off on milk/dairy and caffeine. I'm blood type AB+, so as long as I stop eating beef, duck, chicken, avocado, bananas, caffeine, and alcohol, I'm good. I'd replace beef with lamb, goat and replace chicken with turkey.

More complex things:
Hemp is harmful to Blood type O but surprisingly helpful for Blood type AB. i dunno if this expands to the psychedelic counterpart.

(go to dadamo's website for the database, I'm not allowed to post links)
