A Reddit user, bigchiefhoho, had successfully completed the fat loss challenge in r/BTFC 8 by losing 10 pounds during the challenge period while adhering to a strict calorie deficit, doing Strong Curves weightlifting, and some cardio activities like Zumba.

The Plan

As stated by bigchiefhoho, the plan was simple – to consume only 1400 calories per day, do Strong Curves workout for weightlifting, and some cardio exercises. In terms of a diet, she did not follow any specific diet plan like keto, Mediterranean or vegan but just consumed fewer calories than her maintenance level.

The Process and Outcome

Although the process involved was simple, executing it is not easy as anyone who has tried to lose weight could attest. Bigchiefhoho had to deal with hunger pains, muscle pains, and the temptation to overeat. But she was able to suppress it and stick to her plan. During the challenge period, she managed to lose 10 pounds, went down from size 6 jeans to size 2-4 jeans, and gained more confidence in herself. Her plan for the future is to lose another 15 pounds, then do a slow bulk to add muscles in some areas.


Bigchiefhoho's experience teaches us that one can lose weight by following the simple formula of being on a calorie deficit and engaging in physical activities. It is a matter of mental toughness and consistency. Anyone can follow her steps and try it out themselves to help them reach their weight goals.

Final Thoughts

Losing weight takes a lot of discipline, consistency, and patience. Bigchiefhoho's weight loss journey is a testament to that. Her journey shows us that we need to stick to our chosen plan and do our best to avoid temptations. It is up to us to make the necessary changes to achieve our ultimate goal. Anyone reading this may want to try doing what Bigchiefhoho did and see the results for themselves.
