Discussion on: Do you workout son!? 🧐 🏋️

Once tried doing workouts using some mobile app named BodBot, but it didn't really do much to me. 😅 Wasn't losing any weight despite my goal set on losing weight (Bodbot adapts its exercises to the goals you've chosen) and definitely sweating hard.

I also once joined a badminton club. Eventually I was banned because they thought I had some dangerous health condition due to how much I had to lie down as to not to faint (note: nothing's wrong with me, I just overdo myself and have low blood pressure by default). Conveniently I was banned the moment covid began and we got in lockdown, so I haven't attempted to defend myself on that matter.

Now I'm just trying to stay healthy with an exercise bike, by doing gardening, and when the weather's good enough I just play some badminton in the garden with my partner. Emphasis on trying. 😂

For weight loss, exercise isn't going to really do much since it will also increase hunger. I recommend changing your diet instead. Dealing with nutrition first also has the added benefit of making exercise easier and, depending on the individual, being less prone to injury.

Not sure if you've read everything else in the thread, but I'm doing exactly that. I ate way too many carbs (which I've drastically cut off after doing keto for 3 months and currently limiting the intake permanently), but other than that I've had the sufficient amount of nutrients my whole life.

I was never overweight until at a certain point in my life that was caused by multiple factors. I haven't been able to lose that weight again ever since, despite eating even healthier than before I was overweight.

Wow, your training history is very interesting! If you want to get rid of stubborn fat, you need to reduce your calories. And it's all.
I was overweight, and I burned it only when the calorie content was reduced. I stopped eating all sugary foods and all flour products. It was hard, but it was worth it)

Haha, diet advice on dev.to!

I already did what you said. I never really liked sweet things like sugary food in the first place, I was on a strict keto diet for 3 months (recommended by my doctor) and my carbs intake is currently still limited. My fat levels were also already low, so that was definitely not an issue. It's just not working out I guess. 😅

You say you completely cut off on flour products. Do you mean you did that permanently? That's really impressive. 😄 I don't think I use a lot of products that contain wheat nowadays, since I mainly use alternatives, but I don't see myself never eating wheat bread ever again. I only have bread about once a month but I still absolutely love it lol!

I don't really know much about this kinda stuff, but people always say that just healthy food and moving a lot don't work separately. You have to do both. And I'm mostly missing the moving part. 😂

Free diet and workout advices for all 😆
Well, I did my diet for 3 months and that was enough. Now I'm eating sugar and etc. but once a week.
