I agree with arober11, swimming is a good exercise, especially when you are "a little over" and because you "can barely move your legs or stand", it is very joint-friendly and of course it also trains many muscle-groups at the same time. I would also recommend you to do a litte strenght workout, even it is only once or twice a week --> you don't have to do ...

Swimming is a good general exercise, as it will work most of your muscle groups, but if you just want to work your core try a combination of: Squats, Planking, and a few Crunch variations.

From a peer reviewed research study of GW1516: ...tests on rats showed that at all doses, the drug rapidly causes cancers in a multitude of organs, including the liver, bladder, stomach, skin, thyroid, tongue, testes, ovaries and womb... I recently wrote another answer that provides a general breakdown of how to take big swings at your physical ...

The problem, I think I'm finding, is that many overweight people identify with being overweight. You need to identify with being skinny before you'll ever get there. That sounds stupidly simple, but hear me out. In Rich Dad, Poor Dad Robert Kiyosaki talks about his dad, who, even when incredibly poor, would always say things like, "I'm a rich man, and ...

You are where I've been at for many many years in the past. You need enough results to want to keeping going on, and you are defining 'results' as 'weight' loss, while your real problem is not being to heavy but being to 'fat'. If you want results that make you want working on it, just ignore your weight for a period, hell , throw away your scale and use a ...

There is little to no evidence at all that exercise alone affects weight, there are many reasons why exercise is good, but weight isn't one of them. So your focus should be on your diet. If you eat less energy than you use, you will have a net loss of fat, no matter what source (fat/carbs/protein/alcohol.) Of these energy sources, one actually increases ...

You may not want to hear this...but the solution you have desired for so long (discovering some "thing" that will give you sufficient results that will keep you motivated...ideally, for the rest of your life) is in my opinion one of the biggest obstacles standing in your way to a fit & lean body. As long as you keep thinking like everybody else (that ...

Maybe my answer is too simple and unsophisticated, but it worked for me and is very easy to do: Start weighing yourself every morning and write down your weight (Excel table works best for me). Then you will get easily motivated to do all the other necessary steps to drop weight.

For better or worse, there are common approaches that work for 99.99999% of all people. They rely on consistency, discipline, and following the evidence. Get your diet dialed in. Figure out how many calories you need, and track what you eat for at least two weeks. Watch Fed Up if you can. Barring being an ultra-marathon runner, it is way too easy to eat a ...

You should give a keto diet a try, I used to eat low carb a while ago while losing weight and I felt like even if I got hungry, I didn't get worn out mentally like you often do. Could be that your blood glucose levels don't fluctuate as wildly on a keto diet, but that's entirely speculative. Give it a week, the first days you'll feel like you can't focus ...

This depends on how long you have been on that program really, and how long you have been exercising and dieting in general. That looks like a decent diet, and with a high-intensity form of exercise (lifting weights) 5 days a week your body composition (how much muscle and fat you carry) should improve quite quickly even on a "bulk". Maybe up the intensity ...

Turns out that NutritionData does have a search by fullness factor:

While I can't provide you with a sortable "fullness factor" database - here's exactly how I would get a list of the foods you're looking for... First, you need a sortable list - and you can download the USDA nutrient database in excel here: http://www.ars.usda.gov/Services/docs.htm?docid=23634 You can begin with sorting all the foods ascending by calories ...

One way of checking wether your belly is big because of subcutaneous fat or something internal is to check how thick a pinch of skin is, the fat you grab when grabbing a fold of skin is subcutaneous, and you can not affect where on the skin that will be stored. If the fold is thin, but you still have a large belly, you either have visceral fat, or the stuff ...

Rok I have been doing IF for a year or so. In absence of any clinical trial and while I am not strictly answering your question, I am hoping that you really want to give IF a go. Consider this: By giving a large time gap between your last meal of the day and first meal of the next day, what will your brain and body be running on? We can only store 100 ...

This was covered in: What's The Right Diet For You? A Horizon Special and there appears to be a few bits in the associated free interactive eBook. Essentially the thought is that intermittent fasting (IF) is a useful dieting technique, for people that they categorise / profile as "Constant Cravers", as the body will produce appetite suppressing ketones in ...

I am doing stronglifts on a deficit (1760 calories a day). I am 5'7" and weigh 173. I was 172 when I started back on the program. I had to stop going to the gym for financial reason, and from October '14 to Feb '15 I gained 20 lbs. Over this first four weeks I shot up to 178lbs and I am now on a downward trend. My goal is to lean up (just not be a fat-ass ...

It is absolutely impossible to eliminate body fat in "only one place". Lifting weights has no connection to eliminating body fat. Lifting weights makes your muscles larger (which is totally fantastic) but has no connection to eliminating body fat. The only way to eliminate body fat is via diet. Body fat is simply caused by eating carbohydrates, which ...

You can look for Martin Berkhan's Leangains method here: http://www.leangains.com/ A guy did an AMA for that leangains program here: http://www.reddit.com/r/leangains/comments/1jjrci/former_berkhan_client_ama/ There is a book named, Eat Stop Eat, talking about the benefits of fasting, here: http://www.eatstopeat.com/ and here: http://bradpilon.com/

Currently there aren't any available studies that I can find that examine IF solely for weight loss/fat burn effects. I can find quite a few studies showing the efficacy of intermittent fasting and calorie restriction on a whole host of body systems, but I can't find any addressing IF by itself, which means that you can't distinguish between weight loss ...
