Disagreements with weight loss plans

Monday, March 12, 2012

My boyfriend and I disagree on methods of losing weight. He hates vegetables, eats fruit when we can get it and besides that thinks as long as you exercise you can eat literally whatever you want. Which is what he tells me over and over again. and after his losing 60 pounds right before I met him that's what works for him. But heres the thing. Now that we've been together he continues to eat just about anything he wants and doesn't exercise. and then says things like.. "well i haven't gained as much as i thought i would." in order to justify sitting at the computer all day as okay. Which I have no problem with my problems rest in the him telling me I can eat WHATEVER i want with no consequences. Because yes for most people that will work in the beginning when they have a lot of weigh to lose but when it comes down to it.. at some point or another you have to start eating well to continue losing weight or to maintain the weigh which you have lost. Because while a little work in the beginning will make a difference, changing your lifestyle and committing to eating better and exercising will make the change and make the change last!

    Barbarasdiet- I know all people have different metabolisms and that men in general lose weight more easily. We are both overweight and while he did lose all that weight and was able to eat anything he wanted.. We were both in school and his course was very strenuous and they demanded a lot of him. They always ran, went to the gym, lots of strength training. I mean it was so much that a lot of people would either pass out or throw up. In addition to what was excepted from him in class, he would always exercise outside of class as well both running and going to the gym. That's why he lost 60 pounds in like 4-5 months.

    Darcidalessio- I lose weight fine as long as I work for it. And he has no medical conditions at all. So really I think its just down to exercise. If I exercise all day I could eat whatever I want and lose weight. But if I want a healthy body I really do think it isn't just exercise alone.

    It is also possible that he is hyper thyroid and you are hypo thyroid. If that is the case he can in fatc eat whatever he wants and not gain weight and you can diet all you want and not losew eight.

    People also have very different metabolisms and what will put weight on one person, another can eat without a problem. Also--men lose weight more easily than women in general!
