LIFESTYLE“Glow up” buddies wanted! (self.RedPillWomen)

submitted by Enchantedmansion

I will be completely revamping myself and would like to know if anyone here wants to join! I am 21 and from the UK

What changes I’ll be making: 1.) Learning how to cook delicious nutritious food and drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. Hopefully I will lose weight and it will help clear my skin

2.) Regular hair and beauty treatments (at home)

3.) Starting and sticking with a strict fitness plan and cutting out junk food completely

4.) Working on confidence and self esteem

I would love for somebody to do this with me. We could encourage eachother and update one another what positive changes we’re making through this journey. Message me if you’re interested :)

If your goal is to lose weight you need to track your calories

    It’s still cutting calories

      If you don’t eat below your tdee you won’t lose weight.

      [–]mmerijn 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      Yes, but for some it is easier to lose weight by eating smarter than it is to keep track of calories all the time (not everyone has the kind of energy needed left for self-control after a hard day).

      I’m sorry but this just isn’t right. I have a bachelors in human physiology, and the latest research indicates that the old idea (a calorie is a calorie, burn more than you consume) is just wrong. Your hormonal profile responds to what you eat and your body acts accordingly. Insulin is what makes you fat, not fat. It puts your body in storage mode when you eat simple sugars, and trains your body to burn fat when you eat healthy metabolically available fats.

      99 percent of people in 2018 are obese and fat due to over eating not because they don’t eat the “right foods”

      Can you back that up with a study?

      [–]girlwithabikeEndorsed Contributor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      The Case Against Sugar is not a single study but a pretty well researched book that hits on this idea quite a bit. He has another one called "Why We Get Fat" that I have not read but I believe is more of the same.

      From a lot of what I've read the science is going more in the direction of what u/alisonrw is saying.

      Cuts out legumes too. Pure pseudoscience.

      NYT didn’t conduct the study, they wrote an article about the results of a peer reviewed study.
