Can You Lose Weight By Eating Ramen Noodles

I wear a belt, so I can keep track of everything, and I won’t replace it. There are only a few holes in this worn-out, ancient leather strap. Based on the permanent dent in the leather, I can determine that a year ago, I was on the smallest hole and stayed there for a while. But ever since, I’ve slipped through one, two, and three holes to the point where I’m now holding steady. The largest indicator, naturally, is the pants I wear—or rather, don’t wear—because I can no longer fit my ass into them. My wardrobe is getting smaller because I’m too frugal or stubborn to go out and buy new clothes, and there’s still a remote possibility that I might fit into the khakis I bought only a few months ago.

Thus, the only task remaining is to determine the depression angle. I’m not doing too badly on that front; between binge-watching excessive amounts of television and avoiding social interaction, I believe I can reach the suicidal thoughts stage in a few weeks. By then, dehydration from eating raw ramen and increasing my sodium intake will have caused me to start losing some water weight.

but still, the results can’t come fast enough. I have to look at my lifestyle and contrast it with the two years of college I spent actively trying to lose weight, which is the only recent memory I have of doing so.

Note: The author wants everyone to know that he is not suicidal, that he does not support fasting or crash diets in order to lose weight, and that he does not like to eat top ramen. He is trying to change his weight, but he is a little overweight.

I’ve actually started exercising regularly. I use a stationary bike (thank goodness it’s stationary because I can’t ride the real mobile kind at all), freeweights, and a stairmaster that kicks my ass in the lowest setting. I do that every other day, and on my days off, I try to catch my breath by lying on my back and watching TV. Really, I perform crunches and sit-ups until I’m exhausted, at which point I wait for the next commercial to repeat the entire exercise. not a bad routine, methinks.

I walk. A lot. If not, you should be aware that it has many advantages beyond just helping you lose weight. You gain muscle, spend time outside truly taking in the beauty of nature, and watch the seasons pass by. Walking takes a lot more time but has less impact than running or jogging. I used to walk my daughter in a stroller, as I previously mentioned. This is the first video showing my improvement from 2018.

I made the decision to push myself to consume no more than 1200 calories a day in order to get things going. When you burn more calories than you take in, you lose weight. I use MyFitnessPal to log everything I eat. My typical days start with vitamins and a drink that contains 300 mg of caffeine. Because they contain creatine, I prefer the Bang or Reign drinks. This stuff helps your muscles stay more hydrated, which reduces the likelihood of leg cramps. Leg cramps aren’t fun. I walk about 7. 5-8. 5 miles in the morning, return home, and consume a protein drink and another caffeine beverage. I do the Premier Protein shakes – the pre-mixed ones. After that, I go for my afternoon stroll, which usually leads me to this sign, “Welcome To Seattle.” By the time I’m back I’ve got 15 miles. When my wife gets home, I have popcorn. For supper, I have a can of Progresso soup with half a cup of brown rice, cheese, and Goldfish crackers. If I’m still hungry, I usually have a few hundred calories left to eat. It works out pretty well.

When it comes to walking, I would say to start out slowly and add more on I started out doing 4,000 steps a day and worked my way up to 6,000, 7,000, and 10,000. I used to do apartment laps as well, but walking outdoors with varied grades, hills, and other terrain is preferable. It’s also quite boring. I once purchased an exercise machine, thinking it would be perfect for rainy days. It sits unused. I glance at it whenever I’m feeling a little sluggish and then head outside right away because I find that exercising while stationary doesn’t work for me. Fresh air is nicer.

Thank you for reading, and I thought I’d share since it’s a significant aspect of my life.

I made the decision to attempt walking ten miles every day. This did not occur because I continued to push it above that point. However, I had walked more than ten miles every day for 101 days, with one walk of 26 miles between February 26 and June 10. 4 miles, or slightly more than a marathon, was simply too much, and I had to take the following day off.
