Some people prefer the taste over regular not to mention it still has less sugar.

I've been losing weight steadily since February I was technically obese according to my BMI but I didnt look it. I was still pretty fat though. I knew it was because I had a ****** diet and never worked out. I decided to go to the gym with a friend who knew what he was doing and I'm down about 25 pounds. Now that I see people talking about **** like thin privilege it just makes me rage because losing weight is not as hard as people think it is.

I can agree with this, in November I was 93kilos and now I'm 75kilos. Really easy to lose weight as long as you eat healthy.

I agree, I've lost 20 kg since mid january. If you know how and what to eat, drink enough water and exercise it really is simple. The problem is in the media and marketing. They are selling diets, all of which are ********, and "miracle" products for weightloss. The problem with diets is that once people achieve their goal they often start eating like they were before and the pounds/kilos come back. The poin is that you chance your eating habits so that it's not really a diet you're on but just heathy eating

Weight issues can come from genetics.

I'm 106 pounds, 5'11", and I constantly blame my genetics for my inability to get fat and people always agree with me, so why is it that when a fat guy complains about their weight being genetics, everyone just blames his lifestyle?

I guarantee you you're not eating enough. You should be eating 2500 calories minimum if you want to gain weight; if you tracked your calories I'm sure you're not eating enough

I consistently ate 3500+ calories every single day for 6 months, and didn't gain a single pound.

My uncle was the same way in his 20's. When he got into his 30's, his metabolism slowed down and he started to gain weight. He's stilly pretty thin though.

"Just eat more food bro" is pretty useless advice to be honest.

Eh.... no.

Even if you eat 40 000 000 calories a day, but also waste the same amount, you simply won't gain weight.

So, even if you did eat 3500 calories a day, you could also have the same expenditure, so nothing changes. Now you're gonna come back and tell me you're a couch-potato who doesn't move all day long.

It's simple thermodynamics. Energy is energy, unless it's transferred into something else, it is stored. People aren't immune to the laws of physics.

But this is the same pointless argument.
"According to the laws of physics, you should be fat by now".

Seriously, why is it that i can eat twice the amount of food that my obese friend eats while we both do the same activities, and yet he keeps gaining weight while i stay the same?

I think genetics play a huge role in this (thyroid, metabolism etc).

Nope, sorry.

People always misjudge the amount of food they eat, and the calories they burn. It's just science.

Yeah, well science is being very annoying right now.

I tracked my caloric intake with Cronometer, and was sure to get at least 3500 every day.
I also didn't do any exercise other than going to school.

Not all people store excess calories as fat in the same amount.

Problem with Cronometer is that it's ********.

If I was using that trash, I wouldn't lose any weight at all, there are better and easier ways to lose weight, without it being so complex and tacking every single mineral you put into your body.

Same goes with gaining weight. Cronometer probably ****** you over on both your calorie goals and the amount you were taking in.

Also, if you go to school by walking, that can account for a decent number of calories that you burn, depending on how far you walk each day.

Unless you have a tapeworm inside you, you're doing something wrong.

I believe that some people don't put on weight the same way other people do.
I think there's much more to it than just energy in vs energy out.

You have a different opinion, so let's just agree to disagree.

Unless you have a special condition like I said, something like a tapeworm, it really is that simple. There is some extra science with carbs and fats, but it's not really that important unless you're trying something very specific to bodybuilding.

If I am to lose weight, my maximum caloric intake cannot exceed 1768 calories. Chronometer tells me, I can eat as many as 2300. The problem is my MAXIMUM caloric intake in order to maintain my weight, is 1983.

I can't eat less than 1388 calories, or else my body will go into starvation mode and then I'm ******. So today, I ate 1463 calories.

Wanna know what Chronometer tells me? 1004 calories. So not only would I have to eat more food in order to match it's calorie calculation, but I would be allowed to eat even more then I should, based on my height and weight. So it's ******** software.

It's okay to disagree, but at least know that you're disagreeing based on false information.

Then you really are an outlier. Can't help you at all.

106lbs at 5'11 is like deathly skinny, do you scare kids on a regular basis? I'm 140 at 5'9 and I'm skinny as hell

I'm not 106lbs. im about 145lbs at 5'10.
Still skinny though, but my point was that i didn't gain any weight at all even when eating to the point of feeling nauseated every day.

Now i eat when im hungry, and nothing more than that, and my weight stays the same.

Dude.. i just told you i ate 3500 calories every single day; sometimes more.   
   
I was completely stuffed, and sometimes woke up with heartburn in the middle of the night because i ate too much.   
   
If i ate more than that i would probably throw up, and you are simply telling me that i should just eat more???

I am not trying do be a dick, but your body does not defy the laws of thermodynamics. If you're not gaining weight at 3500, you need to eat more than that. A surplus of energy can not simply disappear into thin air; it will be stored in your body in various forms.

Try eating energy dense foods that don't fill you up too much, in addition to what you're already eating.

It most certainly can disappear into thin air, literally.
Some people burn off excess calories as body heat, others store it as fat.

We are not all the same.

It can't disappear into thin air, this isn't Narnia you're living in. But you are right, we are all different. The problem is tho that getting a bit more fat in order to look a bit less skinny is nonsense. If you wanna gain weight work out and gain heathy muscle mass, go to someone who know's something about nutritions, it's not all in your calories intake it has a lot to do with the type of nutritions you get them with. Also you should understand that gaining weight is much harder then losing it.

No, you are absolutely wrong. I will not explain why and this will be the last time I reply. I hope that you will cease to make excuses for yourself and try harder to reach your goals.

There are a lot of medical reasons for being overweight, like having an under active thyroid. I think what pisses people off is when people blame their genetics for their weight issues and then use that as an excuse to not even attempt to live a healthier lifestyle. You may have a genetic problem that keeps you from losing weight, but that's not stopping you from exercising and eating healthy.
