How to lose weight and what to eat?

I am 6’2 and 270lbs and 21 years old. I am looking to lose weight but I’m not sure what to eat, as well as which exercises to do. Any tips on what weight I should be at my age and how to lose this weight?

    1) Create a caloric deficit in your diet. Nothing too drastic, ~500 calories. Split these among 5-6 meals per day, eating every 3 hours or so. EAT BREAKFAST!

    2) Keep your diet around 40% carbs, 40% protein, & 20% fat. I’ve used 50/30/20 as well. I like 40/40/20 because of the increased protein to keep feeding the muscle. Make sure you’re getting plenty of lean meats (chicken, tuna, salmon), complex carbs (whole grains esp), & good fats (nuts, etc)

    3) A few rounds of cardio a week. Either 30 minute interval sessions or 45-60 minute of steady-state cardio like biking or jogging.

    4) Weight Training is a MUST to keep lean muscle on, plus it does far more to crank up your metabolism than cardio! Muscle burns more fat, so the more you have, the more you burn 24×7.

    5) Drink WATER! 8-10 glasses per day.

    The best reference I’ve found for fat loss (and the one I’ve used myself) is Tom Venuto’s Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle.

    Stay away from sugars, starches & saturated fats. Drink lots of liquids, fresh fruits & vegetables, nuts & walk at least half an hour a day to start.

    Keep it simple. Eat 6 small meals rather than 3 big ones. For each meal, eat some protein. Skip all white foods (bread, potatoes, pasta). Drink 8 glasses of cold water a day. Your body burns calories as it heats the water up. For exercise, walk or run at least 45 minutes a day, no exceptions. Do weight bearing exercises such as squats, push-ups and ab crunches 3 times a week.

    1. No one can tell you what weight you’re supposed to be at, and anyone that claims to is an idiot. Each person’s body has an “ideal” weight it will be at if you treat it right. For example, I was 160lbs and a size 12 when I went to Marine boot camp. After boot camp, I was 160lbs an a size 6. Any doctor would tell you that I’m obese at 5’7 for being a 160lb woman, but when I got sick and went down to 145-150 range, I could see my RIBCAGE. Yet they tell me I should be 120. It’s completely stupid, and thankfully other people are catching on.

    2. Losing weight is all about treating your body right. We’ll buy nice clothes, add cool things to our vehicles, and improve the looks of our homes, but many people neglect their bodies by being inactive and feeding themselves junk. Would you go to into your mother’s home and cover it in grease, corn syrup, and random food colorings? No? Then why do that to your body?

    So how do you treat your body right? All you need to do is feed it good (aka, natural) foods and exercise regularly. People tend to flock to cadio, just the treadmill for just 20 minutes, but the reality is that not only do you need weight training and something to improve overall wellness like yoga, but using the treadmill for only 20 minutes is a bad idea. Not only do you do less work (and thus burn fewer calories) because the moving belt helps you along, but I don’t know where this 20 minute figure came from. 20 minutes is great for interval training, but people are barely jogging and think they’re good.

    It’s not rocket science, it’s just a chance in perception. Do what’s best for your body, and it’ll happily respond. If you want specifics, you can always email me.

    Losing weights is never an easy thing to do. Commitment is one of the key factors to losing weight. If you are serious about losing weight you need to stay serious. Realize that the weight will not come off right away(you did not gain it over night so it will not come off over night). Eating right is the absolute biggest factor to losing weight. Now eating right does not mean you need to starve yourself, infact, that is the worst thing you can do!!! Try eating more organic foods because they are not processed and are healthier for your body. You also need to include exercise in your daily tasks. Start out small. You don’t have to be a marathon runner. This lady, Rose Cole, helped me lose 40 pounds after I had been trying for years. I have kept it off for three years now and I feel amazing. She has some amazing articles and videos that would be extremely beneficial to helping you reach your goal!! Good luck!!! Make sure to check out my source(that is rose cole’s website with all the helpful videos and articles!!!!!)

    ———– Eat foods that speed up metabolism —>(Spices,High protein foods,High fiber foods)

    –Eat more fiber –Fiber is digested slower, keeps us feeling fuller longer and releases its energy slower which keep our blood sugar levels even and helps us avoid cravings.
    — Eat more fruits and vegetables
    –Increase your protein intake– Protein increases metabolism. It helps in building muscle tissue. More muscles burn more fat and increases your metabolism. Calories from the protein rich foods are much harder for the body to breakdown and process.Protein is a good appetite suppressant.
    ——— Spices-Spices boosts metabolism, suppresses appetite, reduce fat absorption and adds taste to your meal. Replace butter or mayonnaise with garlic, chili, mustard, ginger. Saute vegetables and chicken in hot sauce as opposed to oil.
    –Eat smaller, more frequent meals–
    –Replace white rice, bread, and pasta with brown rice and whole-grain products–

    –Drink more water–Water helps to lose weight. Water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body metabolize stored fat.
    Most important—–Do not skip meals–

    I have been seeking this info for a long time. Almost 2 hours of online finding, fortunately I saw it in your website. I wonder why Alexa never show this sort of useful websites in the top of the list. Generally the top search engine results are full of garbages. Maybe it is time to change to other search engine.
