  • I ate all the fruits listed and not in huge amounts ( could not lose weight and I did not eat white flours, pasta, or carbs like that! When I quit all the fruit the weight fell off! I used a glucose meter and saw that 1/2 a small grapefruit spiked my blood sugar more than freaking bread! Fruit is sugar if you want to gain weight eat fruit! All fruits are plain sugar with some fiber but they will raise blood sugar too much to lose weight.

  • Hey, thanks you for video. I just worked out my resting calorie burn rate, and I need to consume 1425 (ish) calories each day just to keep ticking over. I am amazed by this because I actually thought it would have been so much lower. I do not obsess with calories and I am very much lead by what my body is asking for, even with cravings. If I am craving something salty, I sometimes think it’s a possibility I have drunk too much water and need the salts to replenish. Love your channel…keep up the fab work

  • You see I really like to lose weight and I keep on going but I was still fat I keep keep on doing exisise but still it didn’t work��������������������

  • Question: After an intense workout, my body particularly craves carbohydrates. Is that normal? My regular 120-150g of carbohydrates doesn’t feel like it’s enough. My goal is to lose weight and I’ve been working out everyday for about 6 months now.

  • I walk up to 46 steps every single day sometimes two or three times a day and I walk a lot and what’s the point of making this video of you guys was no help it makes no sense you guys don’t even sound like you educated on anything because the average person is supposed to eat 5000 calories a day best typically and normally what it says online and you guys couldn’t even figure that out come on now you guys sound like you’re reading off a script you’re not using your own intellect and information

  • I love you guys your videos inspire me! I was only consuming 1200 calories a day an I didn’t feel like I starved myself but I’ve pretty much reached my goal weight an only want to lose a few pounds now an maintain my weight, but since I’ve seen this video an the most recent one where Kelly said she eats 3000 calories a day.. I have stopped being so hard an strict on myself. I still eat healthy but don’t obsess too much now over calories, love u guys

  • I eat 1,000 cal a day in order to lose weight I’m also working out and sometimes the calories that I burn I eat more is it unhealthy? Because I don’t want to keep doing what I’m doing and not lose weight

  • I lost weight on a strict small portion diet,exercised.Main meals salads tuna,salmon chicken etc.calories i did not follow.I lost 35 lbs and have maintained this area of weight for years, 3 meals, break snacks
    through the day and walked a lot. I started when I was diagnosed type 2 Diabetic no med. control diet and exercise.

  • I think people would diet better if they didn’t have to count calories and just be aware of the type of foods you eat,small portions to loose weight,and maintain,cut back when you over eat,that is my suggestion.

  • I would only use this for when I go backpacking so I know about how much food I need to prepare for my trips and allocate meals for each day!

  • I consume almost 1000 calories per day. My doctor said I am very underweight and said I should be consuming more. Since my family is Japanese I have been taught to always eat 3x a day, but when I eat my meals I get full super easily so I end up not finishing my meals. I rarely feel as if I am starving. Is there something you recommend I do?

  • I’m glad I saw this video. I’m tired of being called names because of what I look like:( I have now started just eating healthier, and workingout. Thank u FB.

  • Lovely video:) I’m currently needing to put on a bit of weight as I’ve started exercising quite a bit (on week 4 of your newest 4 week program!). I’ve just lost a bit too much (weight loss was never the goal for me, I want tone and get stronger!) and know I need to eat more so am slowly trying to figure out the balance!

  • I would like to see a video on eating habits and what listening to your body looks likehunger and thirst vs craving and boredom eating. Thanks

  • A mi tambien me gustan sus videos, Ojala y pudieran subir videos traducidos al español. Cual de sus videos me recomiendan para hacer diario y bajar 20 KG. En 2 meses o 3.? Tengo 40 años peso 70 kg. Ayudenme porfavor.

  • I’m so glad I discovered Fitness Blender�� Never felt more fitter and stronger. Kelly/Dan love the couple banter on your 5 day challenge videos, something to smile about when my muscles are screaming. Kelly proud of your journey, you’ve come a long way. Well Done �� FB Thank you for the motivation, the tips and the best fitness videos.

  • So what should one do if they want to build muscle mass while losing body fat? How does one eat? EX. if I want to for example grow my butt and do glute exercises at the gym, but want to lose inches around my waist, should I still eat for a caloric deficet?

  • I have a bmr of 1606, I am working out 6 times a week 35 minutes a day currently im doing the free 5 day workout with these guys. How much calories would I need to consume to lose weight? Do I subtract 500 from my bmr?

  • I am often hungrier on some days more than others depending on what I do or don’t do in terms of exercise as well as many other factors. I use MFP to track but I try to focus on macros and averaging my goal across the week which it shows you. Soooo some days I may have more avocado and nuts and healthy fats and end up going over my calorie target but other days I am under and may have higher carb or protein intake. As long as it evens out to my goals roughly over a week period I don’t think the day to day needs to be obsessed over. I think it’s a good guide for some people though. I like the listen to your body approach you guys have adopted here but tracking for me is a guide to know I am getting enough of the good things into my body and because I don’t have tons of weight to lose I don’t mind if I have some chocolate here or there and not write it in…rather focus on the positives of healthy eating and try to slowly minimise the junk knowing my body is fueled correctly but not chastising myself and guilt binge more!:)

    I lost weight over many years then was skin & bones bedbound for years then dramatically gained weight (about 40kilos in 3months) to mid-healthy range (according to BMI guides which I don’t care for too much) then trying to tone up and turn what was mostly fat gains into muscle so I don’t really have much of an internal eat/stop eating instinct. It is slowly coming in after nearly 5 years trying to eat healthily/stable now but that guide is a handy backup also.:)

  • I am a child and I excercise for at least 2 and half hours a day. (dancing, walking, running, skating) I use S Health and I eat around 900 calories a day, is that bad? Am I staying fit?

  • Ive lost over 60 lbs (thanks FitnessBlender), but now I think I may be suffering from an eating disorder. I obsess over every calorie that goes into my body, how much I burn off, etc, so I really want to learn how to get out of it. Thanks for the video FitnessBlender, part of the problem for me was that I relied on the online BMR calculator, and not on what my body told me. Wish me luck!

  • I feel like this is good advice if you are already fit and have created a habit out of a healthy life style. Personally if I never calorie counted I would never realize what a good portion of food actually is. If I never calorie counted then I would consistently over eat because my whole life I have been in the habit of “full” feeling as being over stuffed. It is easy to accidentally over eat if you are just listening to you body. When you are very overweight from over eating your body doesnt want you to cut out calories! Calorie counting is good for becoming mindful of what you’re eating and learning habits that maybe years later become no-brainers

    Is this ok? and sometimes doing fitness blender stuff:)

  • I just ate 4200 cals today. I’m trying to gain fat. I hate it when I step on the scale and see a loss. Also I never go outside or pay sports I am completely inactive and i’m gaining well.

  • I’m 17 164cm 64.2kg and currently trying to lose weight. Didn’t eat more than 800cal for a month and lost very little amount of weight i know i ate too little, i workout 6-7x a week for 30-40min(Zumba) can anyone who’s specialist in this thing tell me how many calories should i eat to lose 1.5-2kg a week? Would help a lot❤️

  • I eat about 1500 calories a day and workout 4-5 days a week for 1 hour on average doing Hiit/cardio or strength training. Is this safe/healthy?

  • Its a bit hard for me since I have made a transition to not eat processed foods, does anyone know a good video in regards to calorie intake and whole/ raw foods.

  • i eat +2000 calery a day..i eat when i’m hungr\ and stop when i’m full.. i need to lose 10 kilo…my calories come from healthz foods and i work out everz day…can i loose weight with this method and cal?

  • I guess I’ve never really thought about what I’ll be doing “10, 20, 30 decades” from now.  Is that bad?  Should I have a 300 year plan?

  • 1.500 or under is good for me, and exercise about 30 minutes workout everyday. But also riding a bike to school for 5km and back, so 50 km every week. And freaking walking stairs all the time in the school. And if I walk with my friends or something,,, so that makes me lose weight lol:D

  • I have spent months researching into weight loss and found a fantastic website at Triple trim formula (google it if you are interested)

  • Because of this video, I deleted My Fitness Pal from my phone. I was definitely obsessing over calories too much and probably not eating enough. As long as I’m eating things that are good for me and don’t feel hungry, I have nothing to worry about.:)

  • What if I eat less calories than I’m required? I’m 174lbs. I checked my BMR and calculated how much I need based on working out 5 days a week and it say I need about 2300. What if I only eat about 1700?

  • I have a really difficult time to eat at least my bmr (1484 calories) but I’m not hungry or anything. I just don’t know how to attain 1500 calories

  • Dear Kelli, if you’re willing to film a “full days of eating”, it’ll be meaningful. We can have a better understanding abt the healthy diet plan.

  • I was using a digital calculator for calories some weeks ago before knowing your channel, and I’m still using it right now too but i’m less enthusiastic about it, I really don’t care and I think I’ve found a balance. I was consuming a low amount of calories but ever since I started doing your work outs suddenly I started to be MUCH more hungry.
      At first I tried to still follow the “diet” from before and don’t eat more, but some days ago I couldn’t sleep because I was too hungry, and I’m not the type of person to do snacks at night. I got off of my bed, adopted a midly “f*ck it” attitude (but a healthy one),  and ate an apple plus a cup of yogurt and finally I could sleep well, even if technnicaly my “maximum” of calories for the day, determined by myself and that calculator was over. I guess this might be an example of listen to your body attitude. I’m still technnicaly on diet, but now I’m caring less and less and I’m more focused on eating healthly and just eating healthy food in smaller portions to lose weight. I’ve decided to eat a little more on breakfast so now I almost never want a snack during the day. I used to be eager for the lunch during the morning, but now I feel much better. It’s really a trial and error. Thank you for this video! I really love your channel and you both, you’re helping me a lot!

  • I love you guys I really do. I just have a problem. I am a pescetarian and I cant afford a nutritionist right now, what is the best way to plan my meals and snacks. 

  • This is a good video, but honestly for fat people like me I would suggest starting with a calorie calculator because some of us who have fallen off the wagon on listening to our bodies need some visual numbers to help start us out that being said I’ve lost about 30lbs now and I’ve found my body has just adjusted to eating 1,200 calories per day it’s just easy I always thought eating that amount would be impossible for me because I was being stupid but now that I eat about that each day sometimes less it just makes total sense once I get to about 1,000 I can tell by listening to my body just like they said and I usually eat another 200 and go to bed it was so simple all this time…Don’t wanna be fat….eat less……lol Also I’m 5’4 so it’s fine and obviously when I exercise I bump the number up to 1,400 but i’m sick and I threw my back out at the moment so I need to heal so I can continue for the long haul.

  • Just let you guys know that I really love the way you guys thinking about healthy lifestyle rather than just stick ass in each calories every single day:)
    I am that type of person. I mean i have problem with my eating time. I love good food but since i read some wedsite/video/blog/newspaper about you can gain weight if you over eat despite it good or bad. I was shock when I calculate how much cals per fruit/nuts/poutry that i normally eat. I try to stick my meals < 1500 cals per day in order to loose weight and yes I do work out. But damn I feel freakin tired and have like no motivation to workout even I go with the science like 5oz protein 5oz cabs along with vegetable fruits dairy per day. I rather do not know about them and just enjoy the amount that I want. I guess listen to your body is a thing that I need to tell my mind right now...

  • i suffered from a severe eating disorder and got to 33kilos at a height of 160cm. it honestly makes me so upset to see all these young kids saying they exercise at least 1 hour or more and eat less than 1000 calories. that’s exactly how I got into that mess and it led me straight to a mental hospital (where I’m now recovered and eating normally). please, take it from me less than 1000 calories is NEVER okay, ESPECIALLY if you’re exercising. your brain alone uses 500 calories and when you’re young you need even more. it’s hard to get your head round when you’re ill, but it’s the sad truth
    please take care of yourselves

  • My BMR is 1393/day. Im just about to turn 15 and 163cm tall. Is it bad if i eat 1200 calories a day and work out everyday (strengh/hiit) for atleast 30 minutes

  • You two have the best approach to weight loss and fitness. Too many youtubers and everyday fitness and diet “experts” try to create a one size fits all plan in terms of calories, fitness, macros, etc. As teenagers, many of my peers and myself are highly impressionable and believe everything that they hear. In your videos you are very straight up, not to improve your personal wealth but to help improve people in a positive body conscious way. I love your thigh gap video and your fitsporation rant. I’m curvy but I am achieving personal goals in strength that I could not imagine before. So thank you!

  • You only spoke about maintenance calories goal.. What about weight loss? I’m sure that we need A LOT less than 1000 calories over BMR… 

  • I really love your videos. My doctor also talks about overall health and she never pushes diets of any sort. She talks about what to make sure to eat along with exercise and getting in water during the day. These videos make me want to watch more videos (I am a relatively new subscriber). Thank you!!!
