Hell im one of those people. I csn eat clean and eat at a caloric defecit , but my weight wont move. I legitly
need to train like an olympic athlete and eat good to stay fit. I get tired of it sometimes.
Who we talking about though?
I was going to ask if the yellow was a conclusion you came to through your own opinion and 'stuff they say' or if you had any research to support it, but 'legitly' kind of answered that question for me.
As much as people don't WANT it to be true, our bodies are machines.
JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND YOUR OWN MACHINE DOESN'T MEAN THE RULES HAVE CHANGED.

All of them.
Healthy is not relative, regardless of America's insistence that it is.
Now if we want to have the conversation about people never being taught healthy choices, I can dig it. That doesn't change the science behind the machines that are our bodies, though.
Or if we want to have the conversation about 'food addiction' or emotional eating, I can dig it. That doesn't change the science behind the machines that are our bodies, though.
bodies are different though. I stay in the 190s doing what I do. I'm trying to get down to 170. I lost over a 100 pounds doing the same thing I'm doing now but for some reason I don't lose anymore weight.
I eat brown rice , vegetables and grilled chicken almost every dinner. I eat fruits for snacks and drink nothing but water. Eat under 2000 calories a day but still haven't been able to get under 190
Yes, our bodies are different, but that doesn't mean the science that goes into body weight, blood pressure, fat percentage... all that... that doesn't mean the science behind our bodies are different.
People WANT it to be different, people want it to be that health is just up to completely blind, dumb luck... but... no.
There's a reason you're not losing weight. The thing people are confusing is dumbing the science down to 2 or 3 things. "I cut out sugar, started doing pushups in the morning and bedtime, and eat a banana for breakfast every morning. Whole month. Lost exactly 0 pounds. *facepalm* "
Ok, so there's something else that needs to be considered, and apparently you don't know what it is. Nothing wrong with that, because our bodies are very complicated machines, but they are machines. For example, I don't know if you just happened to skip this, but I noticed you didn't mention anything about activity. And even then, there are different types of activity. Intense cardio is going to get your heart pumping way more than something like walking around the block 5 times.
