Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
Can someone please help me with losing weight. Right now I'm 5'5 125 pounds. I want to lose 5 or 10 pounds, just because I have a little excess flab.
I just don't know how to lose weight. People say it's simple, eat less, exercise more. But then others say if you eat too little you'll go into starvation mode and get fatter. So which one is true??? Should I eliminate all junk foods like candy, but still eat stuff like stew and meat? I don't want to completely change my diet, so will just eliminating the junk be enough?
For exercise I do bjj 3 times a week. I get sweaty after practice. That's mainly what I do, but I also go skateboarding and/or shopping (all day, it's a lot of walking) both at least once a week. When school starts I'll also be taking PE every second school day. I always take public transport so I get a bit of exercise there. Is this enough exercise, or do I need to add more? I may be able to do some at home workout that don't require equipment, but I'm not sure I can do much more. I don't have any equipment and don't like running, but if it's absolutely necessary I might be able to do kickboxing.
