  • I’m instantly subscribed because you said you’re 5’1 sw was 185lbs. I’m 5’1 and just got down to 183lbs! My goal is 150lbs for now!

  • Fellow females: download a tracking app (i use clue but any works) and just refuse to weigh yourself during the 48hrs before your period’s first day and on the first 3 full days of your cycle.

    Life is better this way

    You can also do what I do and take a whole week break from weighing & measuring yourself every month. My emotional wellbeing has improved AND I get a less distorted image of my progress since discontinuing tracking my physical gains & losses at any time during the last 3 days of my cycle and first 4 days of my period. I still use apps that allow me to fitness track and food diary and combined with my dietary restions it’s more than enough to keep me accountable during this week

    Also keep in mind: If your a female with the ability to menstruate/ovulate monthly then your BMR elevates slightly ABOVE BASELINE at the start of your luteal phase. So if the week before your period starts your average daily calories are a little higher than usual (say 50-100kcal a day worth) don’t beat yourself for snacking more than expected for a few days in this phase before your period starts— its very possible you didn’t even ‘set yourself back’ any more than one day if at all because your slightly increased BMR helped even out.

    The BMR calculators on health sites and the TDEE calculators in fitness apps do NOT take this modest rise of BMR into account even if it asks your sex. If they did the calculators yield less accurate calculations for women who are dealing with; anovulation, amenorrhea, highly irregular or infrequent ovulatory periods, below-typical hormonal rises or progesterone levels, or peri-/present-/post-menopausal states. It also couldn’t be standardized for menstruating women not dealing with these issues since the luteal phase a varies in length from woman to woman (some women have luteal phases that are 8 days long, in rare instances women can have phases over 16 days). Our individual luteal phase length also doesn’t remain constant throughout life

  • OMG It’s so terribly frustrating. Check this out, Dami I went on like a 2 thousand calorie a day diet about a month ago at around 450. The weight started flying off like crazy. After 3 weeks in, I lost about 25 lbs. Now the scale has been at exactly 426 lbs for the last week. It’s terribly troubling. When you see very large people like myself on Televison, they are losing like 40 or 50 lbs a month. It’s a huge mind game for sure. You start to think that you have some type of rare condition that only 1 in 7.5 billion people in the world have that prevents weight loss:p

  • I had a 3 ish week plateau. Broke it this morning with a wooosh, yayyy ☺️ It’s so hard but you have to keep going, and take measurements!

  • I’m trying to lose weight I’ve done it previously I lost 17kg quite quickly but after having a stomach issue, I put the weight back on. I was 24 at the time so I’m sure age played a part. I am now 31 and am trying. I started my weight lost journey in March and I’ve gone from 74.3kg to 65kg but now I’ve hit a plateau. I haven’t lost anything for a couple of weeks. After watching this, I don’t think I eat enough. I am on a low carb diet and I don’t eat very fatty foods. Anyone have any advice on what to do? I try and have a cheat meal every Saturday but not sure if I should change that to a day etc? Very confused. My goal is get down to 50kg but now I’m feeling very discouraged.

  • I’m so happy for you You look beautiful My starting weight was the same as yours and I’m down 14 lbs but I’ve been stuck for 3 weeks

  • Thank you so much for this video. I started my weight loss journey a couple of days ago and I lost 2 kilograms in that short amount due to eating less than half of my maintenance calories (600). I am 5”3 and 128 lb and idk what was up with me but I now realize how unhealthy it was. I’m gonna restart my journey once I get back to eating a healthy amount then eating a deficit.

  • Y’all call a 3 week weight loss stall a plateau, try 6 months of being stuck at 145lbs (and yes, I’ve reduced calories further, reversed dieted and upped my calories slightly, switch to low carb, more cardio etc nothing has worked)

  • I have the exact same weight as I did a month ago, but my measurements are actually higher:( which is very disappointing. yeah, maybe I’m building muscle under the fat, but why isn’t the fat going away?? �� I almost cry every time I look in the mirror now. my clothes from last summer barely fit so all I wear are baggy shirts, hoodie and leggings.

  • Guys idk if I’m supposed to eat more than 1500 I’m supposed to eat 2900 (according to TDEE ) I’m 85 kg and 175 cm so any help + I workout everyday (hiit)

  • Jesus you read my mind, I just lost 13lbs and hit a plateau, now im going to reduce my caloric intake and eat a little more protein and hit the gym even harder while intermittently fasting!! Thanks for all the great vids pleass keep em coming, gj with longboard practice makes perfect

  • I really needed to see this. I’ve been at 1290-1400 calories per day for 5 months and the past two months I started feeling so discouraged. My weight just stopped dropping. I KNOWW I need to go back up in caloriesespecially since I work out 5 days a week so alot of days I’m burning an extra 1000 a day and still eating only 1300. Oops.

  • Thank you! I was only doing 15 minute pilates workouts 3 times a week because I was focusing on my diet, trying to change it and get healthy. I hit a plateau after loosing 20 pounds and I think I need to do more cardio now. Thanks for insight!

  • My period is in a few days haha so I needed this. I’ve always been aware you can weigh a bit more before it starts but when trying to lose weight it can be such a bummer. Bloating really doesn’t help either.

  • Also sometimes I do eat 1200 because I don’t have a huge appetite I don’t always mean too and I’m not tryna starve myself it’s just sometimes breakfast and dinner is very filling and I don’t want to feel bloated when I don’t need to

  • ok so for the first one that eating too much i think thre problem with me is that i quickly jumped to eating so little that my weight dropped very quickly and then soon after my body got used to it so it like stopped losing the weight which i wasn’t even half way through losing and then i’m at a point where i’m like if i cut down any more calories i’m scared i’ll basically be starving myself and i’m trying to be more active
    edit: number 2 is the explanation

  • Thank you so much for this very helpful video, but also, you should consider pressing charges against that plant for sexual harassment.

  • Since August I’ve lost 50 pounds however the past 2 months i haven’t been able to budge. I went from 190 to now 140. Im 5’2. I hit a plateau before and started counting calories. I did a 1200 calorie diet. Now I’m thinking doing that isn’t working, but I don’t know what to do. Eat 1300? 1400? ����

  • I appreciate you for talking about “non scale victories”. I’ve plateaued but my clothes definitely fit looser. I’ve never looked it that way. I was very discouraged but hearing that helped. Thank you��

  • I’ve lost 25 lb so far eating 1200 calories a day and I still have 75 lb to go but I hit a plateau �� should I increase/decrease my calories or fast?

  • IMPORTANT REMINDER: It’s easy to get preoccupied with the number on the scale and want do what it takes to make it drop, but adding more exercise and calorie restriction to an already restrictive diet can negatively impact your metabolism and hormones. A weight loss plateau can mean many things. Keep up whatever healthy lifestyle changes you’ve implemented and keep in mind that physical and mental health is more important than a number on the scale! Take care of yourselves, Narwhals. You can do this. ��

  • There are only a few people on YouTube that speaks about taking a break from intermitting fasting. Truth is I have been stuck on a plateau for a month. It is only now I am getting advice on taking a break. So I am going to take a few weeks off from intermitting fasting. Can’t hurt. Great advice

  • Can someone help me? Are you really not supposed to eat below your bmr calories? My bmr is 1556 calories and I usually eat 1300 to 1400. Is that okay? Should I increase my calories a bit or just keep going?

  • Been on a plateau for almost two weeks, I just want to hit my 55lb goal but It really feels like something is keeping me from getting there!�� It’s discouraging

  • WOW You Are A PRO!!!

    I was searching all over for someone that explains how and if eating too little can effect weight loss!!

    Im sooo much clearer now thx a zillion, god bless you!����

  • Starvation mode is a myth! Look in the world, how are so children in Yemen and Africa so thin? It’s a myth and definitely doesn’t exist…

  • I tend to focus on my progress in measurements more than scale wise but sometimes it’s confusing. I’ve lost and inch off my waist in the last couple of weeks but nothing on the scale. So confusing

  • Thank you Dami, you have explained what happens when you are trying to loose some weigth ewith clarity and simplicity and I found it easy to put it to practice.

  • A reminder that plateaus pass. I was stuck in the 330s for almost 2 months, 6 months later I’m in a plateau at 240. Just take this time to appreciate everything your body has been through and everything it does for you.:)

  • Was in a plateau for almost two months. Refeeding and stopping exercise helped a lot. Woke up one day and saw I’m five pounds down, my new lowest weight. 35 in total.

  • This plateau problem affects nearly everyone losing weight.
    It really attacks a person’s psychology.
    Don’t let the weight-loss guilt-trippers call you a “sinner”.
    It’s a natural phenomenon and it’s not simply “calories-in-calories-out”.

  • Refeeding/Going back to maintenance for a few days usually works wonders. If you just started a new workout routine, you also have to keep in mind that the first couple of weeks you may gain muscle/water weight due to your body adapting to the new routine, while still burning fat.

  • So I went down from 85 to 80kg and now I’ve reached 74kg but it’s been something like 3 weeks and I still can’t lose anything, but I want to reach 65kg by summer and I really have no idea what to do so thanks for this video!����

  • I went vegan and I started eating around 1200-1300 calories per day. I guess I have to bump it up to 1500-1800 to start losing weight again. My BMR says I burn 1645 calories if I’m laying in bed all day. I’m trying to get to 130lbs and still have a little fat on me because I want to do a bbl.

  • Thank you so much for this video! Can you please help me figure out how many calories I should be eating in order to be in a deficit? I’ve seen two different ways on how to calculate it but I’m not sure what’s correct.

  • i’ve lost 20 pounds so far and i still want to lose at least 10 more pounds, but preferable i would want to lose 20-30 more pounds. i have been on a plateau for about 1-2 months i’ve lost like 4 pounds most within the past two months, i brought my calories back up and tmr i think i’m going to bring my calories back down to 1200 calories

  • All these other videos I’ve watched didn’t make sense whatsoever I have ADD so my attention span is No bueno but you made a lot of sense! Thank you! I was eating 1300… and I’m 147 and 5’6 I realized I was eating wayyy too little and I was working out 6 times a week… HIIT and weight lifting and my hair started falling out and I was always tired… I know now that I need to eat more and switch things up and relax for a bit…

  • Last June I went on my journey. I was 231. I’m down to 156.8 I want to get to 145ish I am 5′ 1.5″. For the last few months I have been plateuinng. I has caused some depression.

  • Thank you so much I just found you because I was in a weight loss plateau you helped me more than anyone so far! Great info thank you young lady.. and when you talked about eat some carbs one day or eat some fat one day we’re almost at Thanksgiving and girl I am going to enjoy my food and have a glass of wine or two because I haven’t had any wine for like a month.. or sugar for 6-7 weeks

  • U have lost weight!!! I didnt recognize you i clicked on ur previois video and i was like what i have already seen this vid and btw u look amazing!

  • simply due to body dysmorphia I’ve found that even if I DO lose weight, I still feel like I look the same. And, if I don’t lose weight and show non-scale progress, I still think I look the same. I’m very much the type of person that just has to trust the process and one day I look at myself and realize that I look completely different. Since I see myself every day, I don’t notice small changes because I assume that anything different is just a fault of my own vision LMAO

  • So I’m kind of in a huge problem, when I started off at 220 pounds my BMR was around 2,300-400 and instead of decreasing it by -400 or -500 I went straight to 1200 and but I did lose 24 lbs and now I’m in a problem, I think my body is used to eating 1200 now I measured my BMR now and it shows 1900 what should I do now if I start eating more than 1200 I’m going to gain weight again someone help……

  • Good shit bro, ya channel helps a lot. Dropped about 25 lbs within the past 3 months doing I.F. Like you said cardio helps a lot. I altered my diet to around 2,000 cals a day during the wk (still eating my favorite shit) and ride the exercise bike for an hour 4-5 times a wk (1 hr @ 40 mph even at low resistance will burn damn near 1,000 cals). Consistency is key. Listen to my man y’all, he knows his shit. Keep it up Tao!

  • lady I beg you I have obsessed with white teeth I’ve asked other YouTube fans how did they whiten their teeth it just didn’t seem right some wouldn’t answer can you please take time to let me know how did you get your teeth so white

  • Your so pretty! And this was a great video!
    As a creature of habit, I really hope I don’t plateau and have to switch up my routine ��

  • Hey TAO… You mentioned on another video that you need less protein when bulking. Can you go into this more? Thx. Awesome videos! big fan…

  • If I train early in the morning, is it okay to fast until dinner time or should I take BCAAs right after and then fast until dinner?

  • I am currently going through a plateau, and the most practical way to solve this is to keep going! �� I usually hate cheesy advice but think about it this way, when you are going through a plateau you only have 2 options, give up or keep going! If sticking to the diet plan doesn’t cause more discomfort, then why not keep going!

  • Hi Dami I am sorry to say but frankly speaking I am Indian and I think Indian, Middle eastern and African people have more body fat than European, Japanese and Korean… I want to loose the few pounds but unable to reduce weight 100gram trying hard reduced calories doing moderate workout I am totally frustrated now ����

  • hi! i’m a little confused. my tdee is 2,117, so how much am i supposed to eat to be in a deficit? (i’ve been eating 1300) thanks in advance:)

  • Great video. I saw My Fitness Pal had an article about fasting. It was comparing fasting to calorie counting. To me it was trying to dog fasting but not terribly. The thing that caught my eye is that the article says fasting can raise your LDL (bad cholesterol). Well I’ve been doing IF for over a year now and I’ve lost 75 lbs to date doing it. I’m getting my annual blood work in two weeks and I’ll see what my numbers are. Last year my LDL was 195. This is when I weighed around 250. I’m 195 now. Will see what the new numbers are and I’ll post back if anyone wants to know. I’ll be blown away if the number is higher than 195. Tome, I’ve got the shirt and I promise to post a pick of my ugly ass very soon. You have made my life better in the last year and as always thank you.

  • I’ve been trying to lose weight by doing a clean eating lifestyle. I started a week ago and I lost no weight at all. I don’t understand why this is Happening but it’s making me wanna call it quits.

  • Hey Narwhals, hope this video helps �� if you have any weight loss topics you’d like me to cover, let me know below! Join our Reddit Community: https://www.reddit.com/r/loseitnarwhals/

  • I’ve been at a plateau for the whole of July, but I’m staying dedicated to my journey. These videos are so motivating knowing other people are like me:)

  • OMG this came right on time!! I literally have been on a plateau this week and a half and it’s been really worrying me. Thanks LukeNarwhal!

  • I’ve been at a plateau for 2 months now, stuck at 150 lbs (I’m 5 ‘2). It’s hard to keep going after checking the scale every week and seeing nothing change. I am learning to also pay attention to the nonscale victories. I have been consistent with my diet and will continues to be. I have lost 46 pounds in 7 months so far. Maybe will start weighing in only once a month to keep my confidence from falling. JUST REMEMBER YOU GOT THIS!!

  • I’ve plateau’ed a few time now. What have seemingly helped for me was taking a day off from working out. basically doing nothing at all. I ate mostly watermelon and I doubt I ate 1000 kcal worth, but I also did absolutely nothing and just gave my body a chance to rest up completely. I can’t say this is advise that’ll help anyone else, but it has seemingly worked for me.

  • I’d like to know the science behind these types of phenomena and why they occur. Because it sounds crazy that you’re dieting /exercising and not losing weight! Maybe your body is just taking a break, weight loss is hard work. Like it’s just chillin for a bit.

  • Really needed to hear this, been stuck at the same weight for two months after losing 30 lbs in 3 months… So frustrating, thanks for making this!

  • The demoralising thing about weightloss for me isn’t the scale, I can sort of get past that. It’s not losing belly fat, I can see I’m losing it in other parts but you can always see your belly in front of you and it looks no different from day 1, which is really demoralising and makes me want to quit despite everyone saying I look slimmer.

  • I’m so thankful for this channel and these videos, they’ve really helped keep me motivated to stick to more healthy eating and exercise habits!

  • I just chalk it up to salt/water intake. I don’t care about losing weight so long as I’m losing fat so I focus on keeping the diet the same and keeping active throughout the day. It sometimes happens that I’ll be stuck at a weight for like 6 days and then drop 6lbs in one day and not come back up. It’s not linear so whateves

  • Thank u girl. Im going thru a plateau right now but u gave me advice n im going to try these different things n see if i loose more weight.

  • I am the same height! It is HARD getting weight off a small frame. I am at a plateau now, with 30lbs to go. This is most definitely a journey! Kudos to you and thanks for the tips! ����❤

  • i do monthly cheat/refeed days but also body progress pics and/or body measurements! i started my diet a little over a month ago. not i lost 2 lbs, gained 2 lbs, but i lost inches around my body, including 3 around my waist. i have noticed more definition, and i’ve been using the same bikini for a weekly progress pic so honestly i don’t touch the scale often, though i do it a few times a month.

  • Will i loose weight eventually after the plateau? I’ve been stuck for a week, but i keep my calories in check. It’s really stressful, but i don’t lwt myself under eat and starve for the sake of losing. I’m new to weightloss, and i’m fairly worried this i’ve hit maintenance calories and i won’t lose weight anymore.

  • Hey I’ve lost about 60 pounds so far and am trying to lose my last 25-30 pounds been stuck for almost a year now. Have a light appetite and usually always eat under my bmr can’t help it. Help??

  • hi, I was on a weight loss journey for over a year and I lost 60 pounds, and I think I’ve been in a plateau since mid-January. I’ve been eating 1330cal, and then I dropped it to 1200. But I haven’t dropped any more weight. I added weightlifting with dumbbells to my routine, bc I would normally just use the machines, and now I am trying interval workouts on the treadmill, stairmaster, & elliptical, while I would normally do the assigned fat burning exercises they had. Still no progress. The plateau is getting to me, I feel like I’m gaining weight even tho I’m just maintaining it. Any advice?

  • This video was super helpful. I still have SO much to lose and it’s been 4 days I’ve been stuck on the same exact weight which is super frustrating. Going to try some of your tips!

  • I’ve been on the same weight for four months. I can’t seem to get the weight off. I’m this close to giving up. I exercise, avoid sugary drinks, drink green tea and water, eat healthy, and nothing has changed! I’m at a dead here.

  • I was set on having a binge and was planning a grocery store trip for later. Then I stopped at the dollar store and the cashier mentioned her 26lb weight loss to me (because she kept having to pull up her pants). It was like a sign… no binge today

  • Stress could cause plateau but I literally can’t stop stressing about how i’m not losing any weight when i’m cutting out so much calories and its only leading me to binge

  • Hey! Nice video. I hit a plateau but like you mentioned I need to eat less and work out harder! ill update you on the results of that.
    Side note: Please touch the topic of entering the nursing program. I recently completed all my pre reqs then took a 1 1/2 break due to issues. I am now ready to apply for program. Any tips? Can you tell us you journey?

    Thanks. bless

  • I can’t tell you how timely this is!! I just debated stopping my weight loss because the scale was moving and my totm was making things worse. Glad to see I’m not alone!!

  • I love these videos,it somehow makes me productive,I could clean my whole house listening to these videos and it distracts me from snacking

  • perfect timing, i went from 81kg to 71 kg in 5 months, in order for me to hit my GW 65kg i have to shock my metabolism by going on a liquid diet for 2 weeks, i usually loose 2kg and keep the weight off.

  • Whats helping me is changing the time of weighing myself. I used to weigh myself every week, and now I have changed it to every month instead. I don’t allow myself to measure or weigh myself until it’s the day to, and if I’m bloated, I’ll postpone it. So much of it is mental so please take care of the mental as much as you take care of the physical. Weight loss takes time, it always has and it always will. You won’t see your ideal weight just because a week has passed.

  • It’s simple but not necessarily easy, calories in and Calories out. If u want to be in even more of a deficit to lose weight, you have to do cardio! Cardio and CICO is ��

  • I have saved your video… I’ll need to watch again when my weight freefall is over. When the scale stops moving I get very upset and forget what I know.

  • If you don’t like calorie counting, try just food diary. It really makes you realize how much you are eating and aware of every snack. I use to go to mindless eat until I got to lazy to put it down in my diary so I won’t snack. And wait for REAL hunger

  • Plateaus isn’t what you think it’s. If you’re ACTUALLY eating at a deficit you’ll lose weight, but sometimes weight loss will stall (I don’t know the exact reason, maybe has something to do with water), but after give or take a few weeks you’ll lose what you were supposed to lose during that “plateau”. It happened to me multiple times, you just have to be patient even if scales don’t move but you for sure know that you are eating the same stuff that you were eating earlier (during weight loss).

  • I lost 4 KG in two months, by reducing the food I eat and exercising on a daily basis, but I continue on the same system and the same workout. My weight has not decreased. I have completed 4 months and I have not seen a difference. I didnt lost more than 4 KG. What should I do?

  • This video is exactly what I needed. I’m going through a plateau right now. I’ve been eating right, walking 3.5 miles every day and counting calories, so I don’t really think I’m doing anything wrong. Just gotta push through.

  • I swear to god I feel like I’m being watched or the government is on me ��. I was on a weight loss plateau for a week and half and it was stressful. But remember focus on the visual and not on the scale.

  • not on a plateau but I’m watching this video cause I love all the videos you put out!! I wish that you can release more content no matter what it is cause it’s just fun to watch you really inspiring stuff man keep it up!

  • I lost 10.4 lbs and 16 inches, but the scale hasn’t moved in about a week. I think switching up the workouts might be the key, like you were saying. I’m working out to Insanity and watching my eating, but yeah it’s weird that the scale hasn’t budged.
    🙁 This video gives me hope though.

  • after struggling with my weight and going through a 2-3 year binge and restricting cycle, i believe my metabolism had slowed down a lot. i want to try and lose the weight i gained over last summer (around 20lbs from binge eating) in a healthy way instead of starving myself but its so hard. if anyone has tips on what i could do to get past this, i would really appreciate it.

  • Good luck to everybody with their fitness goals! If anyone cares, I’m documenting my journey on this channel so that I can help motivate others and keep myself accountable. Cheers!
