Discover the Secrets of a Reddit User’s 13 Pound Weight Loss Success
Learn the science behind a Reddit user's 13-pound weight loss success through fasting, calorie counting, yoga, and strength training.
Article by Madeleine Smith
A Reddit user, chinaacatt, shares her inspiring 13-pound weight loss success story through various lifestyle changes.
To lose weight, chinaacatt incorporated fasting, eating below 1200 calories, yoga, weights - low weight high reps, a little cardio, and smoothies as meal supplements. She also adds plenty of walking and hiking to her daily routine that helps her stay active.
To calculate her calorie deficit, chinaacatt needed to consume fewer calories than her Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) that yields the minimum amount of daily calories required to function healthily. She consumed roughly 1200 calories per day and worked out enough to burn around 300 per day. Although this range might seem low, it was calculated based on her BMR and her gender and size, much like any individual's dietary needs.
Persistence and patience
It took chinaacatt around three months to lose these 13 pounds. Despite strict dietary changes, she found success in moving her body in some form every day, even if it was just going for long walks with her dog. It's a reminder that consistency is key when making lifestyle changes.
Chinaacatt's story reminds us that a healthy, sustainable weight-loss plan includes a balanced diet, consistent physical activity, and something that brings joy, like walking or hiking. It's essential to remember that everybody is different, and what works for one person may not work for another. To experience success means to try things out for ourselves and find via trial-and-errors what best suits our body, lifestyle, and preferences.
