We've been over this, sexy nazi dogs are not to be ******.
Hello I am random negro anon that likes to waste time writing pointless comments on random profiles.
Now I am going to annoy you until I get bored, which will be like 2 months.

Hey man, if you are really serious about losing weight, then I suggest eating nuts as snacks, personally I like cashew nuts the most because they are tasty and really healthy.
By eating nuts instead of sweets and getting rid of food rich in carbohydrates I've lost around 15 kg now in around 2-3 months (I was 98 kilos now I'm 83). I still feel like losing around 10 but I heard that doing the last ones is really hard.
So yeah, mind me asking, do you use any guides on losing weight and would you recommend any?

Oh yes, it's like you read my mind. I neglected to mention in my comment, but I have already replaced all candy consumption with nuts. Cashews and Pistachios, mostly. I try not to rely too heavily on nuts, as I've heard the kind you get at the supermarket aren't super healthy, but I can't imagine they're anything but a positive alternative to candy.

At this point, idgaf who knows how heavy I am on the internet, so I'll reveal that as of yesterday, I weigh 120kg, give or take. I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life. I think the long term goal is to lose another 30kg if possible, and perhaps lose even more once I get to that stage. It's all
extremely daunting though.

I don't use any guides, with the exception of advice from my college gym teacher. His advice clashes with some of the stuff I'm seeing in replies to comment, so if I'm honest, I'm rather confused about what to do, but I'll maybe try combining all the advice I'm getting into one weight loss plan, or maybe consult a professional about having a personalized plan made just for me.

Thanks for your respomse and thanks for being honest, but way too much salt can be really unhealthy and you can get swollen, though I think that you already know this.
Also, from the thread I've read no one mentioned the dangers of lifting and exercising, you see, with being overweight your heart has to work overtime to move your blood all over your body, if you plan to lose a ton of weight don't overdo it with exercise, I know a person who has lost an eye due to having a really strong heart, not sure how but probably to blood vessels popping in the eye. My personal advice would be for you to lose around 30 kg just by diet and then stay like that for few months for your heart to adjust to your new, lighter body. Then you can start burning the leftover fat by turning it into muscles.

I'm getting a lot of conflicting advice from so many different sources, it's hard to keep track of it all. iRetaliate posted three huge comments that I've saved for future reference, and he suggests a back and forth regimen of lifting and cardio.

He sure sounds like he knows what he's talking about, but then again, he never saw the 120 number. Maybe you could duke it out with him if you really disagree with his advice. I'm so confused

The concept he's talking about is a mistake a lot of people make and something I want you to isolate on if you feel it.

The concept of OVERTRAINING.

Overtraining in beginners DOESN'T EXIST. You simply won't be lifting enough weight to overtrain your CNS. Your central nervous system can handle TOTAL loads that are astronomical percentages of your body weight in single sessions. My tolerance is calculated at around 100,000% (in other words, I can lift a TOTAL of 150,000 pounds in a single session before my CNS is "fried"), yours is probably lower, but at the very least it's around 90,000% (ie. Your bodyweight times (over) 9000).

What this means is that those symptoms are caused by something else; usually one of 3 things.

1) Undereating OVERALL (not enough calories to REPAIR your body)
2) Undereating ESSENTIAL VITAMINS (specifically the B-vitamins, and vitamin C which are highly important to nerve function)
3) Under OR Oversleeping (8-10 hours a day is optimal, anything less or anything more is bad for your CNS)

By the way, the reason I know all this is through experience and also through the fact that I'm currently in the process of getting a PT license.

Hey, I'm using my own experience, when I started losing weight I noticed that my heart was pumping way stronger than it should when I am tired, now it has been a while and it happens more rarely, but I could feel how the beats shake my entire body and I could see black spot things all around the eye, as if it was pushing out from inside (just feels like it, doubt that they are actually going out).
