How One Man Avoided Vacation Weight Gain & Then Lost 20 Pounds! chevron_left PREV: When it Comes to Splurges, a T But since then I’ve lost around 20 pounds, and will probably now try to bulk up a bit. Thanks to this surprising fitness education, I understand my body better and I recognize the difference between good weight and bad weight. Research suggests adults often gain between 0.4 and 0.9 kilograms (or about one to two pounds) during the holiday season.

People who are overweight or obese often gain even more weight. Few people want to hold back at every meal on vacation. Instead, try to set the tone for the rest of the day by practicing a little bit of mindful eating and control during your first dish.

How One Man Lost 121 Pounds and Added 20 Pounds of Muscle; How This Guy Lost Fat and Gained Muscle; How This 20-Year-Old Put on Muscle, Kept off Fat; This Man Lost 122 Pounds With the Help of a Fitbit. Great job losing the 60 pounds! That’s so hard!

I’m on a mission to lose 40 (It was 60 but I lost 20 almost two years ago, but then put 10 back on..then lost 10 so now just the 40 to go). First, to determine how much weight you’ll gain after a few days of unhealthy eating, use the same calculations you’d use if you want to drop weight. An extra 1,000 calories per day would cause you to gain about two pounds per week, while an extra 500 calories per day which would cause a one-pound weight gain. Here are 20 good tips to avoid gaining weight during the holidays.

Many people gain weight during this time and don’t lose all the weight afterwards. Many travelers fear that a vacation filled with indulgent food can lead to weight gain. But a registered dietitian told INSDER that vacation weight gain isn’t worth so much worry. Weight fluctuates naturally all the time, and a short stretch of heavy eating won’t make that big a difference.

Drink lots of water to rehydrate your body, which eases water retention, depending on your overall health condition. Drinking two glasses of water before meals can help you shed the five pounds more quickly, according to the American Chemical Society. Until you lose the vacation weight, avoid soft drinks even diet ones and fruit juices. I wasn’t super strict with my food, while on vacation, but I was still watching it.

I weighed myself daily when we got home and believe it or not, I lost all 5 lbs of vacation weight in just 4 days! I think it’s mostly water retention from eatting more carbs than usual (glycogen stores more water in your muscles when you increase your carb intake).

  • Extremely useful tips. Best video on how to maintain our weight after weight loss. Loved them all!! I particularly liked #3 and #7. Thank you so much! ����

  • Thank you. I needed to hear ALL of this. I realised how much I’ve backslided after I had a huge motivation boost because of my husband’s depression and it’s impact on me. I wanted to loose the weight to set my mind on more positive things for myself, our kids and him…after I lost my goal weight I lost focus on why I started in the first place. This morning I woke up feeling terrible for all the weight I put back on and I needed to find out why….just adding key words into the search engine got me to your video. I needed to hear all of your words. Thank you. Start date was May 1, 2019 @ 94kg after already lost 5kg by fasting on and off for a month prior. Stopped at 83kgs by July 27th. Now it’s September 2nd and it’s creeping back and I’m at 87kgs…sore and slow. Today I start again. Sept 3rd.

  • This is another reason why I respect Dr Stephen Phinney. Yes, he obviously promotes low carb, BUT he wouldn’t say we should ALL be on it. Therefore this dude doesn’t have a hidden agenda, this isn’t a business op for him. He comes across as very genuine and passionate in helping people get healthier.

    In a sea of quacks, it is great to come across this dude….Also, he has a soothing voice, very digestible. ;D

  • I used body for years! I was in the gym every day, but never really saw the full results I wanted. I heard about you guys, and I tired your workouts. HOLY COW! I got my results…. and I was not even in the gym!! I was in my kitchen doing these awesome workouts! YOU GUYS ROCK!

  • Which intermittent fasting did you do? 16:8 or did you do 24 hours every couple of days?? I am curious which one because I am thinking of starting, thanks!

  • Thanks so much for this, just got back from a mini-break at the coast. One thing I’ve noticed since I’ve made fitness/eating healthy a lifestyle, is I get excited to see the new workout environment. What’s the hotel gym like? Is there a cool outdoor space to do a hiit circuit in? Jogging/walking on the beach becomes an exciting opportunity!

  • Weight gain after weight loss is a common problem among us. Thanks for your tips to prevent them. Learned a lot from your video. I appreciate your hard work.

  • if u dont wanna gain just stay under 2000 calories wich is pretty easy. it doesnt matter if u eat healthy, or eat junk food. just stay under 2000

    Diamond’s start off being formed many miles down in to the earth. They are being formed in the fiery lava at the deepest depths of a volcano, under lots of pressure. They begin to rise up thru the lava and get a lot closer to the surface. Then many years later, the miners find the diamond deposit locations in the earth. They blow up the ground and there are big chunks of rocks all around. The large rocks are all removed with large machinery, taken to a factory where they are processed. The rocks are broken into small pieces, the diamonds become visible and the rest of the rock is carefully broken away from the diamond. They are then cut into perfectly shaped gems that are fire prof and the strongest substances on earth. Then put together with various gems that require a similar meaningful process and turned into a beautiful piece of jewelry.

    The reason that it is hard to go back into ketosis is evolutionary: suppose there are temporarily cheap carbs available, like fruits or roots. Then the herd should eat them untill those carb sources are depleted, in order to store enough fat for the winter.

  • I think I lost like 40ish in 3 months and another 20 in about the same time but I wasn’t working out crazy when I lost 20 it was just summer but I lost 40 in basketball.

  • Thank you, Kelli and Dan, for being so loving, funny and informed! I love all your videos. I’m going on vacation soon, and this video assuaged my worries beautifully. PS: Someday, I hope to HIIT like a hamster.:D

  • I think I need to do low carb, cause I workout and ball but still got a little fat on me, I’m 20% body fat, trying to get down to 11 or 12% like you

  • He honestly still eats like shit and he’s getting results. This just shows that you don’t have to give up a lot foods and go on a super strict diet. Good video!

  • i’ve always been a very athletic kid, never been ripped but usually always was in shape. after i graduated high school i gained weight. i was 225 pounds and i lost a lot of weight by carb cycling. i’m still going and tight now i weight 190 and i didn’t have to give up eating! obviously everyone is different but for those who really don’t want to give up food look into carb cycling
