    Question Weight loss at 45

    I have been looking for a forum such as this for some time, I love the content on here and have never gotten so much information in one place.
    Can anyone direct me to any product that can help with stubborn weight?

    Food journal and a food scale. Use both and adjust food intake to your rate of loss goals.

    500 calorie daily deficit for 7 consecutive days should net you a pound of “stubborn” fat lost.

    Canned green beans

    Take a whole can of green beans in water, not sure US can sizes, 14 ounces???
    Drain and place in bowl
    Microwave until hot
    Chuck a load of Chipotle sauce and stir, chilli sauce or something on it so it doesn't taste like eating a can of green beans.

    That is very filling and keeps you full for a long time and has only about 120 calories or something (not including sauce) plenty of fiber. Because it keeps you full for a long time, you're 100 times more likely to comply with your diet than if you were hungry.

    This might just be the best product in existence to help diet compliance. I'm sure they'd brand it as some super supplement and sell a can for $5-$10 each if they could. But they can't.. it's super cheap

    Enjoy!

    Edit, think you may call it haricot or common bean? The ones I mean are in a green pod and it's almost all pod in the can with only tiny tiny beans inside

    Weight loss is the same at 45 as it was when you were 20 and is the same as when you will be 70.

    consume less calories than you expend.

    No products needed.

    Use a scale on your food so you know what you are eating. Prep your food in advance, again so there is no guess work. Find low calorie density foods that fill you up. That takes a bit of research but you can't live on just green beans as the poster above said. I also found I am burning a lot less calories on a daily basis than I thought. I added walks twice a day as well as a daily workout.

    You have to also break the expectations of the people around you. That gets a little weird but people wonder whats wrong with you when you only eat half a steak or whatever.

    Lost 55 pounds since March and I am still going.

    Good luck

    Indeed.
    I'd just add that the magical world of apps can be a useful tool. Paper food diaries are ok, but several apps out there will track calories etc extremely well - and worth the $30 a year.
    Why NOT?

    Agreed, tracking creates personal accountability but, as with anything you only get out what you put in.

    It truly is as easy as this.
    People love to overthink things

    The supplement you're looking for is called caloric deficit

    veggies instead of carbs allow for quite a decent medium term weight loss

    Calories in vs calories out. Try for under 2000 calories per day. Waling at a good pace (?5km/hr) for an hour per day works too.

    Still the same as always. Age doesn't override it.
