How to lose weight?

Anyone else struggling to lose weight? I am 5"8, 240lbs and I have literally tried every diet. I just always feel hungry no matter what I do or how much protein I eat. I am at a loss because I just want to feel good about myself but literally am always craving something sweet or bad for me.

Honey I’m 5’8" and weight 265 and I make high amounts of estrogen
Healthy is not about the number on the scale
Healthy is how you perceive yourself
Healthy is your metabolic panel being normal
Healthy is being physically active
Healthy is being yourself
Healthy is your mindset
Healthy is learning to love yourself the way you are.

I’m the healthiest woman in my family and I have an athletic build and at 265 I am the happiest I’ve ever been. I’ve learned to embrace my individuality and my curves.

Check out Truvy, I have lost 42lbs taking just half of the recommended dose. It isn’t a scam or a pyramid scheme. It definitely helped me and several members of my family.

I know diets can be a pain in the butt. But with every diet needs a little workout plan. It doesn’t have to be a lot. Even just search up high rep low weight exercises, atleast 30 min a day will help a lot! And hey I crave something sweet all time. It’s okay to have a little bit of course don’t cut it all out because then life won’t be fun. Just keep up a good little workout everyday, and eat in smaller portions and you will do awesome!

Follow CICO. Start by tracking what you eat. See how many calories you take in on a normal day and set a goal to eat 500 calories less for two weeks, the 500 less after that if needed. You can eat what you want as long as your in calorie deficit. That’s the only way I’ve been able to lose any weight.
I eat tacos 3 times a week, and I lose weight.

Have you had your
Thyroid checked?

I developed gestational diabetes my second pregnancy. I did a low carb no/low sugar diet and lost 57lbs in 6 months. I quit soda that was the hardest. I started drinking water and Gatorade zero. Ate zero carbs at breakfast. 30-45 for lunch but I always kept it on the lower end and 30-45 for dinner. Portion size is also a big thing. Like if I ate a hamburger steak with a salad and baked potato I would only eat half of the potato. Pay attention to serving sizes on the nutrition labels. Limit intake of fruits and eat more veggies.I always ate a spoon of peanut butter before bedtime. All snacks should be 15g carbs or less.

Don’t diet! But yourself in a calorie deficit. I still eat whatever but I just count my calories! Down 20lbs in 2.5 months

Lots of walking and calorie cutting!

Start with light exercises and work your way up

I set a calorie goal and it’s helped me lose 20 pounds so far. Switch to low calorie foods like pam or I can’t believe its not butter, caged free eggs, turkey instead of ham, replace snacks with baked chips or fruit or beef jeky. Gatorade now has a low calorie bottle that you can replace soda with. There are many ways to lower your calorie intake, satisfy your sweet tooth, and still get full meals without starving yourself.

You can eat a little bit of everything. The key is to burn more calories than your calorie intake. That’s all. Smaller portions of carbs , more veggies and white meat. Don’t starve yourself. U can eat healthy all day long. U just gotta burn it.
