I can't run either, I'm too heavy for my knees to handle when running. I would recommend going on long walk, more like power walks. Do one hours at least every day and it will give results. Also don'r accumulate it, meaning 10 mins there and there, do one hour nonstop. Together with diet changes also it can do wonders! That's what I did before I also started gymming and I lost maybe 20kgs on walking/diet alone.I tried running for a while last year, but it didn't stick (I blame the fact that I got rather fat in the last few years, and my legs can't sustain my new weight as well as they did when I was a spring chicken), but I definitely need to start again, maybe slower at first.
No idea, I'm usually pretty hydrated, it's a minor annoyance and goes away after a while, but it happens mostly on weekends when I go out and eat with my family, and I end up hungrier when I get home, feels like a waste of moneyMaybe you are thirsty or the food is very acidic? I used to always feel hungry after eating apples for some reason.
This is a good starting point.I've started trying but I have little ideas how diets works. I'm starting by cutting out sugar and bread where I can, and counting calories. Wish me luck!
The hunger sucks.
Thanks, I greatly appreciate it. As for the advice, I'll take all I can get but I don't want to impose. How do you deal with the munchies?This is a good starting point.
Cutting carbs (chips, white rice, greasy food), saturated fat and sugar will give you great results if you're keeping your caloric intake in check.
I lost 150 pounds between 2011-2013 by doing this. Minimal cheat days and an overhaul of my eating habits. If you need any advice, let me know.
I had the sleepiness thing for several months, I'd feel drowsy soon after I finished my exercise routine each day, I had to take naps at noon and I still slept like a rock at night. It went away after a while but I still take a break in the afternoon to nap now. I remember 2 sundays where I just literally stayed in bed and slept through the entire day after I was done with my morning stuff, and strangely the drowsiness just kinda went away since.Since I started lifting weights, and I don't lift that much, I've been hungry nonstop and doesn't matter how much I eat and I'm sleepy also always. Don't remember it being like this before.
20 min naps around noon are the best! I often take them. I've also become a morning person, I love waking up early and having my coffee before the world wakes up.I had the sleepiness thing for several months, I'd feel drowsy soon after I finished my exercise routine each day, I had to take naps at noon and I still slept like a rock at night.

Good thing is that it kind of fixed my terrible sleeping habit I had my entire life, I hit the bed as soon as I have the time at night and I became a morning person, I could actually sleep for hours straight like when I was a kid, I always thought that's not possible ever since I became an adult
Funnily enough NAFLD is also what kicked my arse into gear late 2018, I'm still in my very early 20's, way too young to be dealing with Fatty Liver Disease. I did it to myself and by god I'll undo it myself if it's the last thing I do lol. Let me know if you need any dieting/exercise advice.A few months ago I've tried one of those blood-tests-at-home, which gave some abnormal results.
I got in touch with my GP, and a few other blood tests and one ultrasound scan, it turns out I've got the so-called Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, which is kind of a mouthful way to say I eat like shit and hardly move my butt from the chair, which yeah I could have told them immediately, saving the NHS some quids.
Long story short, if I don't drastically decrease my carbs and fats intake, and also do some excercise every now and then, I risk getting type 2 diabetes, cirrhosis, strokes, and death I guess? Death it's kind of a given at some point, so why not.

What will really be painful is the change of diet.
I'm Italian, and my wife is Italian too, so pasta/bread/pizza/etc. it's kind of a given for us (and also our baby daughter needs to eat her carbs).
But most importantly, I'm very into Chinese cuisine. Like, I would eat Chinese every day if I could. I'm even a decent wannabe Chinese cook!
Unfortunately, even removing carbs from the equation, Chinese is also rich in fats and salts (those delicious sauces!).
Damn, 2020 will be a big pain in the butt, I know.
Thanks! It was quite possibly the most mentally taxing thing I've ever done but it gets easier the more you get used to dieting and exercise as I'm sure you know, 60kg is no small amount!
If you're not overexerting yourself than the 2 most common reasons are dehydration and low blood sugar. If you don't think it's one of those 2 than go to your GP as you may have an underlying health issue that may be causing it.For some reason whenever I exercise I get lightheaded. What could be the reason for it?
Yeah, our metabolisms are funny like that - this is how I've gone about boosting my metabolsim after years of unhealthiness. Cut out as much sugar as you realistically can (you don't need to go keto crazy or anything), less than 70g a day or so - especially sugary drinks, if you need sweet drinks than find something naturally sweetened with something like Stevia, not healthy but better (I like Nexba's soft drinks and sparkling waters). Make sure you're eating enough calories, a lot of people don't realize that consuming few calories (<1000) on their own (crash dieting etc.) can cause more harm than good by significantly slowing your BMR down, so make sure you're eating at least 1000kcal a day unless you're on a specific regime/program like OptiFast (which combines very low calorie intake with keto). Also eat more protein and spicy food where possible.Haha the fuck, I almost lost 2kg in a few weeks.... but going on dates, going to the cinema and getting candy and being lazy and getting bread and cheese for dinner I gained it all back in just a few days!
I'm suspecting that during the years being homeless and not really eating that well and always moving made my body drag the metabolism way down, so now that I don't move as much but eat much better I gain weight like crazy.
