  • I feel sad for yuri… yuri has what they called banana shape body it’s hard for them to maintain being thin because their bones structure is different.. we all have unique body sad because she needs to fit in to please her hypocrite fans.

  • I’m kind of ‘recovering’ from heavy calorie restriction. I was eating like 450 calories a day and burning 600 calories. That went for 2 years. I was obsessed.. I started at 67. 1 kg and now I’m 65.5 kg. At my ‘best’ I was 63 kg. I was eating so little and didn’t even lose that much weight. Now I just did a lot of home workouts for 4 days and I’m not eating more calories (500+-, slowly trying to eat more) but more protein in the calories. Now I am 67 kg (btw I’m 165 cm). I was always very muscular and very sporty. I hope It’s muscle and water weight… I’m just so anxious about gaining weight�� At least I don’t have to go to school at the moment

  • I am so like you are in this video!!!!!!!!!! I am trying to figure out how to eat and what to eat!!!!!!!!!!! I am going crazy with trying to figure it out!!!!!!!!! I know that I have to workout for the rest of my life because it’s what we have to do to stay healthy. It’s the eating part that I can’t figure out.

  • Thanks for the info! I was wondering if you could do a video on how someone would “fix” their metabolism after yoyo dieting for a long period of time, years!

  • Thanks for your great advice! I’m learning how to leave the “all in or all out” mentality that has kept me in the yo-yo syndrome. I’m learning to give myself the grace of not dogging myself for eating a bad meal I evaluate what I did, brush myself off and get back on track. Sometimes I even plan for eating a meal that’s outside my eating boundaries but then it’s back to my better eating plan. I’ve stopped thinking that a slip up is falling down into hell.

  • YOLO ��������������
    I reversed using the information that I get from watching your videos and I can say that I am doing it perfectly. Thank you so much the your information.

  • I just got here from Every Day Damn Fitness and you’re everything I aspire to be. Funny, bubbly, open, confident, all of it. I’m on a journey myself as well, on my way to lose whatever I can (goal for now is to get below 100kg/220lbs) and I’m 17kg down from my highest of 137kg (302lbs):D

  • 2:11🙁 i wish it was easy for me.. I struggled to lose weight and I am stuck at 55-60 kilos I can’t lose more even though I eat healthy (sometimes I think that I need to eat more than 1000 calories but I get full really quickly).. (I managed to lose 20 kilos in two years but I can’t lose more I don’t know why Hahaha ) but seeing how critical the society acts with both woman and Man really disappoints me,It’s really hard to try to be happy with your own body when society portrays that pretty only means skinny and good proportions,also pretty hair and skin while maintaining a diet, I am vegetarian because I want but I see so much people taking it as a diet,not as a lifestyle and they get so sick and they blame the vegetarian `diet’

  • Thank you Ryan… JoseTheVegan on YouTube here, great video once again!
    My downfall has been potato chips. I can’t put those down once the bag is opened! I just don’t buy them anymore!
    Thanks and best regards!

  • You inspired me to do better and commit fully to my weight lost goals. Yesterday i finally bought a Fitbit because of you! You’re right,there’s no way i can accurately track my steps without it! Today, i did 10,565 steps! I’m proud of myself for doing what i thought would be really hard to do! Thank you Carlo!

  • What about when you are sharing a house with people who aren’t on the journey with you in terms of the foods? We share our resources so I will always see those cookies on a bad day and happily eat them all. It’s not easy

  • I see a lot of people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets. But Im not sure if it’s good. Have you ever try this popular weight loss secrets?

  • Hi sir I’m a fan�� Im doing Intermittent fasting for almost 3months and I lose 13kg already..Im also doing Calorie deficit but sometimes im still drinking coffee from starbucks and that okay? ☺️

  • Hi Carlo… You are truely inspiring…!!
    Its just literally been 3 weeks… not even a month! And i lost 6 kgs… i was not a morning person…but i find myself to love morning walks.. and meditate.. and today i had this huge day… usually i would go zero energy in the middle of the day! But i was on my fasting mode and i was so energetic… God Bless you..u r truely doing a great job.. specially when u focus on the psychological perspective….
    Just keep doing what u r doing❣ always happy to see ur videos on my newsfeed..

  • Hi Carlo, I love watching your videos when I’m on stake out like I am now. A quick question. I know I’ll have about 20 minutes free when they start talking about Kobe vs Jordan and I usually go some fast food. What should I do instead? I thought about doing some burpees but they’ll know I’m a narc. I need a stakeout friendly workout and diet regime. Oh… wait someone’s coming up to them. Hopefully it’s a junkie needing a fix! No, they are comparing sneakers. Sigh.

  • Carlo, I would love to say a big thank you from my heart, you videos keep me going, you are plain, I follow your work and I’ve gone from 242 pounds to 196 pounds,I have 10 more pounds to lose to be at my normal weight,I’m super excited,what exercises do I do to tone up my chest please

  • They have so much money and they can’t hire a simple dietician to help their idols? There are so many healthy foods you can eat a lot of and still lose weight.

  • this is extremely heart breaking… i think she’s the most beautiful member no matter what her weight is but reading some of those comments was hard. knetz are so unnecessarily brutal and overly observant it’s very sad. they try so hard to find “imperfections” amongst every idol but i wonder how THEY look. the fact that yuri was never appreciated by her talent breaks my heart even more, god give this girl strength but she’s definitely in great condition now but that 2011 june fancam shattered my heart oh my goodness… please stop worrying about other people’s weight.

  • I discovered your channel thanks to Every Damn Day Fitness and now I’m binge watching all your videos in order, can’t wait to follow your journey, you’re amazing!! Truly an inspiration!

  • Always a great content and loaded with info. I’m new to your videos (3 weeks) and i’ve been following it since. I’m on IF and minimal home workouts. I’ve lost. 4kgs in 5 weeks since i start dieting. I plan to do 10k steps per day as you recommend. Thanks for your amazing advice including what to avoid and superfood!

  • Bro… the part when you said you would research alkaline foods WHILE eating the bad stuff, that’s me! Lol! It’s a process though one step at a time

  • You don’t need to like every member but it gives you no right to judge them. You’re a fan, not a judge. Get your job and title right “sones”.

  • When you mentioned cutting out exercise routines from magazines in the 5th grade I couldn’t believe that someone else used to do that too!! I’ve never seen anyone around my age and my weight go through this type of journey. You’ve inspired me to start exercising again and make health changes. Hopefully I can see some results like you have. Keep going your doing amazing!!!

  • Love all your content. ���� You made me start IF 3 months ago. More content like this please.

    Did 10,000 steps yesterday. Hope to make it everyday as much as possible.

  • How do I stop yo-yo dieting if I use food as a comfort food/vice? Whenever i’m sad, bored, stressed out, I eat bad food. I dont eat food for sustanance I eat for comfort. Kind of like how alcoholics lean on alcohol for comfort and it’s an addiction, i’m that same way with food. I’ve even thought about replacing this vice with another vice it’s gotten so bad. Do you have any tips for me?

  • I swore back when I lost my 30 pounds that that was it! I would never go back to eating like shit. Today, here I am. After my binge yesterday, I am currently back on track….for today. I am hoping to continue. It was in mid July of last year that I really noticed the weight loss, so I hope by then to be where I want.

    The sad thing is, the biggest enemy in my diet is my husband….. I wish he would stop bringing me junk.

  • I have 2 boiled eggs and black coffee,every morning but i think i can go with out breakfast but OMAD instead…thank you Carlo for all the from Hongkong

  • Watching your video first thing in the morning… I’ve been yo yo-ing my diet while I hanging out with friends then feel like absolute crap… This helps me a lot.. Thank you so much ��

  • I’m on a weight loss journey to I’ve been slowly making some different changes lower carbs I use to drink no water now I’m really trying to drink half a gallon a day and eventually go up to a gallon I cut my soda intake trying to not have one today started walking every day use to not walk much at all and only eating during a certain time frame it’s different it’s a challenge but I just try in stay positive

  • Great advice. I lost 20 lbs in 14 weeks and fell of the wagon for 10 days straight recently (Yikes!). Not much weight gain but I felt terrible emotionally. I’m getting back on track because of your videos. Very Much Thanks Carlo! You’re a lifesaver!

  • Hi kuya Carlo:) hope you’re doing well.
    Thank you for sharing your weight loss knowledge:)
    Just wanna know if drinking turmeric tea can break my fast?
    Thank you:)

  • I know this is not wright loss related, but I would like to know how you worked on your relationship with money, can I contact you on Instagram, I also struggle with money problems

  • I’m disgusted by these people saying she’s fat and making fun of her… I would like them to feel the pressure of being an idol:/ We lost lives because of these people so they need to stop quickly before it happens again…

  • The fact a normal and most likely healthy weight for her height is considered really fat is horrifying. The most she ever weighed was maybe 130 tops which is about the perfect weight for someone’s who’s 5’6… and honestly the “too big” eras were the only time she genuinely looked healthy???? Like she wouldn’t collapse from exhaustion or starvation. Kpop industry really needs to fucking fix their standards of beauty bc forcing these young girls into eating disorders is so beyond terrifying

  • In my personal opinion yuri was the one and o my idol that went to the gym for a healthy body… her so called “yo-yo” was just intense schedule…. she was always healthy never too stkinny never to heavy… she has the best abs…. of course she watched her figure but don’t we all remeber all the fitness stuff she did?

  • It’s just so sick how especially in asian culture (and I’m saying this as an asian and experiencing it myself even from family members) you always get comments on your body, no matter what shape, size or weight you are. You’re either too thin, too big, too bulky whatever, nothing seems to satisfy anyone and what for? What is the need for constantly commenting on other people’s body. Just look at yourself and take care of your body, the way you want to and let others look and feel the way they want to. Most important is that all of us feel content with the way we look and consume mostly healthy food and exercise as often as we like and as often as we feel necessary. As a teenage girl, I was a little chubby but I was completely fine with the way I looked but because of comments from my family I started doing useless diets, overexercising and all of that didn’t help but just made things worse. I am so glad, that I don’t give a fuck anymore what people say and just do what I feel is healthy and good for myself. Seriously. I pity all those girls that face these terrible criticism everyday from every possible person.

  • 2011 body was very much like a super model, very slender, snake like, and pretty which photographs really well.
    2017 body was thick which is usually the ideal type for what guys like since she has some “meat” to grab and hold onto.

    2018 body seemed like a happy middle.

  • 12:04 I think it was because her arms are thin and she still has her thighs. Once her arms are big, everyone insults her again.
    Imagine only being known for physical beauty and losing weight. Then all of her “fans” rag on her for trying to act or saying that she sings poorly.

  • I can’t even tell the difference much. She still look skinny. The only time I could tell she gained weight was when they had Kcon in LA (Mr. Mr. Performance).

  • 800cal??? The human body needs a minimum of 1000cal to function, and even then that could lower your metabolic function. This diet is setting them up for rapid weight gain…

  • i think she’s simply diabetic, my mom is exactly like her in 1 year 6 month fat 6 month super skinny according to her prescripted pills and physical condition….. my mom also gain/lose weight so fast…

  • My husband is not on my whole food plant based diet, makes it harder for me. He wants the foods and desserts, ice cream, things I know not to eat. Makes it hard to say no thank you.

  • I find you really inspirational! I am also starting my weight loss journey after getting on the scale and reaching my highest weight ever, 215 lbs. I’ve been binge watching your videos and I want to thank you for introducing me chloe ting and her challenges.

  • This is what I call disloyal fans. They come for the hype. They leave after the hype is gone. Pathetic people they are. One second they are fans next second they are body shaming.

  • So relatable ���� just found your channel but excited to follow your journey. We are at very similar points in our lives and weight loss journeys. Thanks for sharing!

  • You know having fat/bigger ankles and wrists are better. They don’t look like they’ll break. Also they won’t break. Having really thin ankles will result in weaker bone when you’ve grown old.

  • yo-yo dieter here checking in… I need to continue to watch my food intake even when I’m finished my cutting phase. I’ve failed this twice so far. Third times the charm?

  • 3:25 my close friend still doesnt get my diet till this day because i eat like that… “you eat a lot, but at the same time you don’t really, and i don’t get it”

  • Why are netizens so… terrible and harsh? Would they want people bashing their OWN bodies like that?! I THINK NOT! So why would they do that to others??!!

  • Yuri is my bias and I totally understand the struggle of gaining weight fast and losing it fast too. It is so difficult to manage.

  • Hey Carlo, I’ve been trying omad for more than a month now, and I do cardio and home workouts 6 days a week. But I don’t see a reduction in my weight. I do (maybe) see a change in some parts of my body. Should I switch to 18:6 or keep going? I hve to loose about 6-5kgs but I’m not able to loose even one kg

  • You‘ve become my favourite youtuber concerning weight loss. I learned a lot about intermittent fasting during the last year, but on april 6th this year I was fully committed to my weight loss journey and I started with full determination. I watch a lot of videos und read a lot to understand the mechanisms behind weight loss and keeping motivated. One meal a day was the game changer for me. I lost 31lbs since I started. My favourite quote of yours is „don’t be a tree!“. I walk every day and just love it. Thank you very much for your competently and nice way of explaining the mechanisms of weight loss and the mindset behind it. Kind regards from Switzerland ����

  • I can say that my situation is relatable to Yuri unnie. Even though I’m only 16 now i can see how many times my body shape changes and how people respond for it. Seeing this, I’m not worried by what the others might say but more likely worried to my own body, having this kind of diet.

  • But why is it that no matter how much weight these idols gain or lose, they always look so pretty? I look really different with only a 5kg weight loss or gain.

  • I still think she had shots on her thighs to get rid of them:( it’s sad and I think companies should focus on teaching idols self love and health instead of pushing them to lose weight to fit a ”concept”. Yuri is beautiful but it seems like she only feels good when really skinny, like someone engrained that in her brain and it hurts cuz she was the first idol I ever stanned

  • People will always have something to say whatever you do. It’s true that the standard of this world is too much. Yuri is great and she really has a nice body, she can do whatever she wants because it’s her own body.

  • I wish that knetz who keeps bashing her ended having a elaphant leg….i wish infinity stone is real so that only kind person may exist….

  • Idols this days will never feel those kind of body shaming, being yuri must be hard. Sooo hard. And I’m so disappointed to the fans that keep urging her to diet, she looks great even with a little gain.

  • You are just adorable and I’m so excited for you! Thanks to sharing all the info. I’ve been looking for inspiring videos of women who have shared their journey and yours is great, glad I found it. You’re so brave! I keep thinking that if I did a YouTube video diary it would help motivate me but I’m soo scurred. I wish you the best in your new adventure, you’re going to do great!

  • Honestly, she was always one the members who I thought looks so good when she had weight on her. I feel so bad for her knowing how damaging weight issues can be to ones confidence and over mental health.

  • Its sad to have videos and people that only think of image. They are people who get so much hate, im surprised how they stay sane. I would of fought everyone.

  • I feel as if the yo-yo chart almost resembles a “diet break” without regards to the biweekly said timeline and lowered maintenance kcal

  • some of these are totally misleading. i do hope you have some consideration to delete the videos and do some research before make the real one. some of the pics got photoshopped.

  • I feel like I’ve seen this video before. Why are you uploading it again? Yuri says she watches Youtube vids a lot, did you want her to see this and feel even more bad for herself?

  • WARNING: Long comment, but worth it!!:-)
    I’m 23, 5’5″ and weigh 119 lbs. I weighed more when I was in middle school and was under 5′. I was never really big but struggled a lot with insecurity, always had cellulite, stretch marks, blotchy pale skin, acne, bumps on my arms and legs, etc. I used to try everything too, but eventually I gave up on losing weight and just accepted myself for how I was. One day, I went raw vegan cold turkey. Not to lose weight, but because I was doing a ton of research on toxicology and nutrition and I just realized it was the healthiest way to eat; the most natural. The chemicals added to foods and the plastic packaging contributes a lot to health issues. Same with contaminants in drinking water. And animal products? OH man. You can get organic meat and everything, but just based on the research I did-organic or not, it seemed to be incompatible with our digestive system and physiological needs. Makeup, hygiene products, cleaning products, paint, etc…so many things in our environment contain carcinogens and hormone disrupters. I’m not totally raw anymore, but I am still vegan and I only drink purified water and organic foods. I haven’t eaten meat in 5 years and haven’t even been tempted. It sounds hard, but after you do the research it’s no longer just an option but a necessity for a high quality of life in the long run. If you find local organic farms, farmers markets, health/natural food stores, and community cooperatives, it’s really easy and inexpensive to buy organic produce(health food stores are the most expensive out of the ones I listed, but honestly even then, it’s worth the price for the long-term payoffs). I’ve never been happier, healthier or looked better. I eat mostly fresh produce and cook most of my meals myself and grow a lot of my own food organically. Nuts, seeds and fatty fruits like avocado and coconut are calorie-dense, but don’t add bulk to your body. You feel full with a lot less. Here’s the real kicker and what I honestly feel made me LOOK as a good as I do and that’s aligning my body. Most people have subluxations-in other words, their vertebrae are out of place some way or another. Everything in the body is connected and something out of place in your back throws everything off. Ever feel like one side of your body is lopsided? It’s probably because it really is! Anyways, I didn’t work out this whole time to get to the size I am. I adjust my own back. I have been for years and my body has never felt so COMFORTABLE to live in! So much looser and more relaxed. I feel like weight clings on to our bodies in these lumpy masses when things are pulled out of place and muscles aren’t able to activate properly. And I honestly feel like the changes I made above are responsible for the attainment and maintenance of my current figure. Remember weight is just a number! It’s good to get within the healthy range of BMI, but it’s all about how you look and feel (through your own eyes!), like the glow/tone of your skin, toneness of muscles, and genuine health. That’s what it comes down to: a healthy, natural lifestyle. Staying active. That doesn’t have to be deliberate exercise; I hate exercising, but I love staying active. I garden, I walk to the river and I even gave up my car and ride my bike everywhere ( for the environment-prevent global warming). It’s all about what is practical and makes you feel good!:-) You’re right-lasting change is a slow and transformative process. This is about changing YOU from the inside-out. Clean out the clutter of your mind, see how beautiful you are and don’t ever beat yourself up for slipping up. These things can’t come over night; you’re completely reprogramming your body, mind and soul! All of things I suggested are also the best things you can do for the planet. That’s my 2 cents for what it’s worth. I hope that helps you on your journey:-) Love you girl. Keep up the good work and keep shining. You inspire me:-)

  • I’ve been a fan of Yuri since 2009 and I don’t know why people in the comment said she has low self esteem and self confidence?? She always says she’s proud to have her skin tone and don’t want to change it even if she’s given the chance. She also knows she tends to gain weight and for all i know she didn’t do diet just because people told her to. Saying her happiness lies on her weight is just so wrong I’m now afraid if Yuri would find this vid now that she’s active on youtube too. Also, quoting netizenbuzz’s translated hate comments with only few upvotes isn’t helping at all. Ok, first of all, Yuri’s burst of popularity in 2009 is not solely because of her body, but also because of other things, for example she was on a variety show called Invincible Youth where she received so much love and gain a lot of fans. And then there’s genie era where the concept suit her the most. If you are talking about her extreme weight loss in 2011 it was probably because they were so damn busy in japan and had to go back and forth to korea and other countries and doing concert tour on top of it. 2014 was a rough year for both SNSD and SONES, i don’t think there’s a single SNSD fan with a sane mind out there that would whine about their weight gain when we alr had a lot that year. 2015 was also a busy year for Yuri because SNSD had double title tracks and single comebacks and she was all over the variety shows and i don’t think she was overweight or underweight too. 2018 and 2019? I’ve seen all of her pics those years and i found her getting all the muscles and that’s definitely not yo-yo dieting. I think she’s just the type that can lose and gain weight easily based on her mood and her schedules. For example, recently, she shared that she has been going through surgery because she had problem in her stomach and that really cause her loss a lot of weight in probably a month because she said she lost all her appetite while she was at home recovering, so i don’t think your opinion about her gaining weight when she had ankle injury in 2017 were right either. I think you need to stop using captions that look like you know the idols like the back of your hand, just sayin ��

  • Even in 2016/2017. She was so thin though. All of SNSD were. I was so surprised by how their legs look like long bamboos in real life when I watched SIA.

  • Subscribed ✔️ Thank you for making this content! It’s so refreshing to see someone being honest and sharing their growth and learning. I started the same journey 5 months ago after the same sort of story as you. Tried every fad you can think of, and now I am trying to “untrain” years of this mindset about dieting. I have slowly lost 15kg, but have for once in my life enjoyed it. I never feel hungry, or tired or crave food. It’s truly changed my life to change this mindset ���� thank you again! Wishing you all the best.

  • And people wonder why korean stars commit suicide. The expectations are just too high. Her weight is seen as skinny in America even at her “heaviest” which isn’t that heavy to begin with. Its a shame so many women have to starve themselves just to be seen as valuable.

  • This video is 35 min but it took me almost an hour this was definetly a rollercoaster from dieting to gaining and honestly this is very sad Idk wtf is wrong with knets bashing every idol like literally you will never find an idol that everyone agrees to love there must be someone hating and that goo hara comment is disgusting and the fact she got recognize cuz of her body is shameful ��
    Fighting Yeri-ah you’re much more then a body ��

  • I’d kill for Yuri’s figure. She looks so much healthier with more weight on her, it’s ridiculous she’d even be considered fat when looking healthy

  • I honestly say I was one of Yuri’s body admirer when I saw her the first time in Oh! and RDR video. But I also loved her dance. It’s ok to expréss your opinion about your likes. I prefer a Curvy body over a skinny, not because skinny = unhealthy, but just my liking, BUT, you dont be mean or unrespecful to others. I also am aware that body was thanks to extreme and hard work so Is spected the moment you take It easy It will go away, so it’s really sad in this industry, first people wont accept a person for who they aré and second, people is not strong enough to love and defend themselfs to say “the hell with you people”

  • Gaining self-confidence doesnt happen overnight. For some, it may take a long while. So no one is allowed to break someone’s confidence. Funny how it works, you build your confidence for a very long time and these bored and shitty people will say something bad and then you’re at zero. Stop body shaming idols!! Their body, their rules.

  • Yuri: getting a little chubby
    “Fans”: she doesn’t look healthy anymore

    The point of this video is also wrong, discussing celebrities weight. Even i am even guilty for clicking this video. Honestly, the heaviest weight on yuri is never not healthy. People are ao judgemental..Damn!!

  • Chris!!!!! You are absolutely phenomenal! God Bless you for real…..this I’m sure is a labor of love, thank you for your dedication and for allowing yourself to be a vessel to spread this powerful message

  • For me yuri and hyoyeon are the most attractive members in snsd especially in Lion Heart performance.
    I feel bad for yuri:( because of her job, the pressures, and all that shit haters said to her, she has to do unhealthy diet.

  • Korean idols are in constant pressure to have an extremely thin body. People are always focusing on their bodies forgetting they are normal human beings. It’s normal not to look the same all the time. This ridiculous standards are what make idols starve so people doesn’t say they have “gained weight”

  • It is actually really funny how they call them fat and ugly they should look at them selfs like who wants their opinion.
    If they are fat then I don’t know what I am��

  • while every knetizen was saying that Yuri is ugly/fat/too slim/talentless i was just happy to see her performing no matter how she looked she did her work as good as possible this is the thing that matters not her weight or looks and it always drove me crazy how some “fans” would ask her to put on weight or loose it
    it was so ridiculous
    i am happy that nowadays we have a lot kpop stars that try to show variety of real bodies

  • There a channel on YouTube called “Blended adobe” she’s a fantastic cook and cooks only Dr Debi approve alkaline recipes she teaches people how to cook please check out her channel

  • I’m currently on my second water fast.. instead of pounding water I’m drinking when I feel like it.. I feel better and I have more energy than the first.. u truly planted a seed in my mind.. thanks again

  • Keep up the good work. Good luck with growing your channel! Why don’t you use zmsocial[.]com!? It’s a handy tool to help you grow your YouTube following.

  • Haha I commented on another video about this subject! Thanks Chris!! You have really changed my perspective, people thought I was crazy I would mention you the YouTube guy aha but really thanks man! You’re way of communicating comes sincere! Best of wishes!

  • don’t know about her diet as she claimed no one from the group is dieting at channel soshi. but calling her good for nothing or talentless is utterly stupid.

  • Also, I would like to add. The more good food you eat, when you do eat the bad foods they won’t taste as good as they did before you cleaned up your diet. That always helps me to give up certain things because it just doesn’t taste that good anymore.

  • Hi Carlo, does omad affect metabolism, and does calories matter in omad? I have started OMAD for a week and I feel great with my results but I feel dizzy some days, I don’t really feel hungry tho. I have cross country training twice a week, I am having about 800-1200 every day at dinner, is that too less or its good?

  • Sorry to ask a question that is off-topic here, but does anyone know how Dr. Sebi stands on herbal/medicianal teas?  Appreciate any response.

  • I’m beginning to think you’re super human… like on the verge of perf ����‍♀️ Lol..!! The advice you give is so true & so helpful! I’ve definitely been a yo-yo’er for years. But now! Oh honey I’m almost on your level (����‍♂️����‍♀️) I’m getting there day by day! I get excited about my day and how I can achieve another goal of eliminating certain unhealthy foods and being conscious of the choices I make overall! I love the freeness yet secure grip I have on myself. God is Great!! and you are wonderful ���� Thanks for inspiring others the way you do✊������

  • Yo-yo dieting is a cycle of short-term changes in eating and activity. For those reasons, it leads to only short-term benefits. After losing weight, appetite increases and your body hangs on to fat. This leads to weight gain, and many dieters end up back where they started or worse.-healthline

  • I don’t like mushrooms either because they use to grow in our lawn as a kid and it creeped me all the way out. I don’t like those grey/black stalks on anything. now if it’s chopped really fine and I can’t see that stalk I’ll probably be good with it.


  • It’s as if you know my life! Loll I’m definitely applying this! Will you be making a video on your journey to improve your eyesight?


  • This is interesting. I have tried to be vegetarian a few times. It wasn’t satisfying. My diet now is mostly vegetables with meat on the side. Gradually naturally I shy away from meat more and more (not liking the taste) but I am apprehensive to pull the trigger that I will not be satisfied. So I will just allow it to happen organically if that’s what’s happening.

  • I am the all in type and gradually making the changes really worked for me. You’ll see your whole mindset change. Great advice Chris! ��

  • Hi Chris! I see you growing my friend! You will be at 100k followers soon! Didnt I speak it before? Told ya! Great content as always! This actually was the most helpful and realest video for me thus far! I tend to be a all in or nothing kind of person so this definitely helps me! Thank you Chris! So many people need to see this video, because we all struggle with the up and down at times. Keep ’em coming! ���� i

  • I’ve come to this conclusion a few weeks ago. I’m yo-yoing. I’ll do gr8 for 2 or 3 months. Then my one cheat meal turns into a month of bingeing. I need to get it together because I don’t want to develop a bad case of fatty liver disease & messing up my stomach lining.

  • 1150 seems way to low for someone who is 5’6 plus working out, dancing, and doing other activities for somewhere around 8+ hours a day. At her height, wouldn’t she need at least 1200 just for basic bodily function?

  • Everytime i feel demotivated to workout or eat healthy I always come back and watch your videos to motivate me to do better and it always works:)

  • Honestly no one has ever explained weightloss to me like this… it makes so much sense I’m kinda mad that i didnt get it earlier lmao

  • This is awesome information but, the problem I have is I don’t know how to figure out my Resting Metabolic Rate. I know you can use an online calculator but I have been eating pretty lean at around 1700 calories and the calculator says 2400 calories. Should I maybe type in a lower body weight?

  • Here is the link to the decisional balance worksheet.

  • Strange in korea if thick is fat. All this thick girl is hot and yummy being skinny and take risk of their owm health. They are not even that fat.

    Jihyo twice
    Why the heck korea entertainment industry and their netizen is so judging. They are already delicious and yummy being thick. That is not fat. F^#&# off

  • Hi Carlo, is core training considered as cardio, I’ve heard that cardio don’t do good for fat loss long term and too much will negatively impact results. How much should I train a week with what exercise.

  • New subscriber and so happy to found your videos, very relatable! Hilarious & cute!! You’re rocking this journey.
    “Older lady” here, mid 30’s….. Sup Girl?!! Lol

  • Ryan, such a good video! I’m going to concentrate on not relying on the scales so much for results. I want to lose about 10 pounds and in a little over a month, I’ve lost 4. I was hoping for more based on all the wonderful testimonies I see on YouTube. I now realize that this is MY path and I am happy with it. Sometimes I need a booster about food. I eat oatmeal for breakfast, starch and veggies for lunch and maybe some oatmeal at night for a snack. Please tell me what you think about this way of eating. I appreciate you!

  • The GOAT. Purchased both the contest prep guide AND fat loss forever and WOOOOW. I cannot possibly say enough positive things about them both. If you’re sick and tired of the bullshit these IG “influencers” are promoting, then educate yourself. If you’re continuing to fail in attaining your physique goals, it’s your fault! The information is spelled out for you in Laynes book. Okay, I’m done now. BUY HIS SHIT.

  • You are so funny and cute and real!!! Love you and sending you a ��. I hope �� you are still on this journey. I’m already motivated. ��

  • I was looking for some results of Chloe’s challenge and that’s how I got in your channel, and girl……………….. I feel that. I’m also in a journey to lose 40 kg and it’s not easy at all. You have already inspired me a lot and I’m gonna do the same challenges you did hahaha thanks A LOT for sharing your process with us, I can’t even imagine how difficult it is

  • Like you I’ve been dieting my whole life and I’ve never heard of mini cut cycle. I think I will try it out at the end of this month while also continuing my IF.

    Visit us your natural soy candles, wax melts, and lotions.

  • You’re inspiring me to want to create my own weight loss videos (people seeing it would likely motivate me to keep going). I am so proud of you and can’t wait to see more videos!

  • i’m 12 years old and 201 pounds i’m around 5,8 and i’m trying to get too around 150 so your videos are helping me out, thankkkk uuu

  • Girl, I wish you were my neighbor so I could do this with you. We’re the same weight and I am struggling so hard core to get started. Keep up the hard work because you’re my motivation.

  • I’m not an older lady and I’ve been enjoying and finding your content useful. I’m also in Colorado on a similar journey. Let’s hope for some good in the 2020 apocalypse! Good luck everyone!

  • I need to get off this YoYo. Once again you posted this just in time. If anyone cares, yesterday I ate:

    3 pork corn tortilla tacos, a french pastry, a small lemonade from Sonic, two pieces of bread from the Mexican bakery, two bowls of espinazo which is thickened with corn flour, and with one bowl I had two corn tortillas. Also, some mixed nuts, some peanut butter on a spoon, some animal cookies, a freaking frappe from McDonalds that my husband brought to me…and I can’t forget my cup of coffee with half and half I started out with in the morning. Oh, and some leftover steak.

    Horrifying. The good thing about a big binge like that is that it kicks my ass into wanting to get back on track for real, really get it together.

  • You crack me up. I found you by accident and watched a few videos. Now I’m starting from day one and implementing a plan for myself. I’m 5’9 and 274. You are my inspiration!

  • Hi there B,
    Hope all is well. Good luck on your journey. I’m on the same journey. It’s well worth it we’re worth it. God bless you B. ������������

  • I started my weight loss journey last month, May 19, 2020 With 72kls weight. I feel motivated everytime i watch your video. After a month of low carb diet, i am weighing 65 kls as of now June 19,2020.. Is my weight loss too slow or too fast? Thank you! Greetings from Philippines ��

  • Also I started my water challenge today! I downloaded myfitness pal. And I am trying this whole intermittent fasting thing. Day 1! Here we go! I’m 4ft 11 in and at 172.2 I’ll keep you posted.

  • Just joined your journey and currently binge watching your videos like I did the office on Netflix. But you are one of the few people I relate to when it comes to weight loss. I don’t feel bad for shoving Panera bread Mac and cheese down my gizzard after my wisdom teeth removal after watching you. I will definitely keep following you and your progress!

  • I just started watching your videos and I started my weightloss journey 1 week ago. I think you are so awesome and down to earth. I got 60lbs to lose �� but your videos make me believe it can be done. I’m rooting for you ��

  • I really loved this video more than others because it really resonated with me. I’ve struggled to lose weight for the past 2 years (and initially gained 30 lbs when I went vegan). I’m very slowly seeing the scale budge but your right. I have been allowing those “bad foods” in my diet a couple times a week and for awhile was addicted to fast food (vegan, but still). I cut out all fast food and potato chips (my biggest weaknesses) and I’m starting to notice that I don’t even want fast food anymore. I can walk right by the chip aisle and not be tempted.
    I believe the weight loss is right around the corner. I’m happy to see these changes in my life that I never thought would change.

  • @beatriceCaruso I’m perimenopausal & cannot lose anything like my metabolism is on permanent shutdown. I love the micro-cut I’ve never heard of that before. I will look into it to see how to adjust my caloric intake. I’m 5″7″ & 163lbs. I walk 4 miles a day, do intermittent fasting, and eat about 1100 calories a day you’d think I’d be tiny… but no, I never lose any weight just maintaining. I think to loose weight i’d have to eat like 900 calories a day… what?? That’s nothing. Anyway love your videos stay honest & true. Oh and I started a challenge of my own…. Swim every morning. Today, I managed 15 minutes 16 laps in a 25 yard pool =.23 miles. Excited to see if this old body changes.

  • I killed the +370 pages in few days.
    1. It’s easy to understand, if you like science or not ��
    2. Some parts are hilarious �� you will learn and laugh at Layne’s jokes
    3. My fav thing of the book: tables with all the data you need for quickly calculations. Bookmarked them all.
    Looking forward to have your complete guide! Great great job ����

  • Wow it’s so cool seeing someone on a weightloss journey doing diet breaks! I saw videos on the paper and considered it but then the temptation to rush my weightloss gets to me. Ok now I want to do this too, I’m at the end of week 2 so one more week of strict dieting especially since I haven’t been so strict before. Also my break week is going to be where I’m going to challenge the weights i lift, love your updates and so excited to see your progress!

  • girl i’ve been watching your videos in a very random order and whenever you said shark week i thought you were talking about an extreme workout (i guess bc of gymshark) and i was like what is this shark week? and it didn’t cross my mind that you were talking about your period lol. from a confused non-native english speaker

  • Some knetizens seem especially vile with their comments. A revolution
    in thinking is needed in the industry and society with more focus on
    (body) positivity, included but not limited to Korean idols’ obsession
    with unnatural lightening of their skin, plastic surgery, and of course
    being unhealthily thin!

  • I just found you and I beyond love you already. I’m in a similar place in life-mentally and physically and locationallylike I also live in Colorado haha!

  • Thank you so much for making these videos! I am just starting my journey as well and I see a lot of similarities between our bodies which completely motivates me to work along with you! <3 <3 <3

  • This video really helped me. Thanks for sharing. Also, you are a riot and I was a forever fan within the first two minutes of listening to talk <3

  • Wow! Once again im posting a creepy comment. You are my role model. Just discovered you yesterday. currently binge watching all your videos haha! Youre gorgeous and that personality, girl! Wowzaaaaa ��
    Im also in the same boat as you, trying to lose weight slowly but surely and you give me really great advices here:) you also motivate me lots. Also, you help me tremendously because Ive been struggling with crippling anxiety these past few months. So thanks you, for being an awesome person:)

    Much love, from French Canada ����

  • Decided to spend my day watching all your vlogs and yes this older chic, 43 enjoys your videos. So far I have a list going on what I want to try according to your awesome results.

  • I am so glad i discover your videos, you and Rachel Sharp helped me a lot.. it is exactly one month since i started doing ADF fasting combined with eating unprocessed whole foods and no counting calories on my eating days!also i am a new member of newbie fitness academy and i am really excited to start…last two years i gained 37 pounds, tried all the diets you can imagine but always got everything back, became tired, depressed, i lost any desire to
    do anything except eating i am a huge emotional eater… btw i already lost weight just in a month and no
    i am not stepping on the scale i am just measuring myself, also i am way more energetic, less hungry…i am going to check in a few months with the results, thank
    you Carlo!

  • I have a huge problem with limiting my calories and then usually by Thursday or Friday I’m starving and end up binge eating. Then on Monday I start all over again. I’m going to try this and make sure I get as close to the calories the calculator gives me. Hopefully I can break the cycle!Wish me luck everyone!

  • By the way Layne lays out the metabolic damage accrued from the cutting phase, why would it not make sense to go on extreme deficits for shorter periods of time than to step-wise decrease calories? It seems like the main variable controlling metabolic damage or metabolic repair is time. Minimizing time in a deficit and maximizing it in a bulk seems like the best way to optimize this process. Reverse dieting up seems beneficial while reverse dieting down seems damaging by the way it is defined here.

  • Question here. When does it happen that you gain weight and body fat but lose lean body mass as well at the same time? Unless it was a mistake when I got measure, it looks like I did it ��. And I didn’t stop training completely, maybe just slowed down slightly because coming out of an injury.

  • Hi. I was wondering if you can share the study that shows that gradual calorie increase after a cut restores BMR back to precut levels?

  • I have cut my diet to 13 to 1400 calories a day. I’ve had people tell me that that’s too extreme. I consider it not so because it’s only by a thousand off. I used to be a bodybuilder. Now I’m a bodybuilder in a different form. I’m tired of being overweight. I know that doing a diet as Extreme as this could be considered a yo-yo diet especially since I gained most of my weight back after I started getting stressed out from work. But I need to drop this weight. I want to get down to at least a hundred pounds less by next spring. I think I can do that. I can understand the whole breakdown in the chart but can you tell me if there’s any negative side effects for doing a diet like this? No granted when I do start eating more once I’ve lost the weight I don’t plan on going back up to the massive amount of food that I was eating because I would just sit at the house and eat when I got hungry. Now I wasn’t massive, but I’m not happy with being overweight. Especially since of what I used to look like. I see all those pictures I’m like… Damn I was in shape and ripped. Now I’m more like damn I’m out of shape and I’m going to rip a shirt

  • That was a pretty good video, and I got the point, although I have but one question. You didn’t draw the maintenence kcal line, so I suppose, it should be somewhere in the middle of the diagram? If that so, how come, your bodyfat, and lean bodymass starts to increase, while you are still under the maintenence kcal but with a little higher kcal intake?

  • Awesome info as usual! Would love to hear your opinion on a mini diet like say 4 weeks. Not to get shredded but just to lose a couple pounds of fat. More aggressive deficit ok? Is there a need to reverse out of a mini diet?

  • Hey Layne can’t find any videos of you talking about the effects of soy in relation to estrogen. So in your opinion good or bad? It’s my understanding that it won’t put you outside of physiological range on estradiol but if you could chime in that’d be great.

  • Did someone really focus on her ankles? Fun fact my left ankle swell after walking. I have no injury, but apparently I might have a medical condition that causes me to retain water in my left ankle.

  • Hi!! Question. Does it mean there is something wrong metabolically if after a lean bulk I still have to cut a pretty deep deficit to lose fat again?

  • Been struggling hard with yo-yo dieting. I never binge but I do IIFYM, and mess up and eat too close or just over maintenance for a few days.

  • Very informative,but pls next time use more diverse colors,i am having a hard time with these…and yes a am a little bit colorblind in red/green something like that which many men have…thanks!

  • I thought you said calories in calories out is only thing that matters with weight loss? You guys were wrong about saturated fat and now your wrong about obesity also, yes, people do lose weight when restricting calories, but that is only a correlation, calories are not the root cause of obesity!

  • Well you can eat as much you want post diet. Just don’t start with another diet until you regain your metabolic rate and muscle mass.. That is the most examples of bodybuilders who are doing like one show in one year. They can diet very hard, after that eat like a pigs and after like 6 months yes they will be more fatter, but their metabolism will be recovered + they will have more muscle mass. So they are ready for another hard diet. Maybe girls are more prone to this “Ou my god I gained so much fat after the show. I need to drop calories like right now..” Boys are more like “who gives a fuck. I am in off season..” Layne also talked about this..

  • The problem is not Yuri gaining or losing weight. The problem is those ungrateful netizens who hides behind their gadgets and spreading hate comments about idols, making idols depressed or feel bad about themselves. I just hope Yuri will live happily and not having to worry if she maintain or gain weight, because true fans can accept her body as long as she is happy!!! And haters will continue hating either way.

  • Can you explain the genetic potential in regards to losing lean body mass in more experienced trained individuals in a separate video

  • Would loooove to see more content/info on a proper gaining phase and building muscle after a fat-loss phase. Thumbs up if you agree?

  • Layne Couple things man. First, I don’t know why the hell you don’t have more subscribers. The only rationale I can think of is that you’re intelligent, you have credentials, and people don’t like to hear the truth. Keep grinding man. Secondly, I watched your Joe Rogan podcast last night. Loved it. Hope you guys can make a part two. Lastly, would you do a body fat test breakdown/accuracy video? I was just calipered at 8.1% and was 6.8% 7 months ago. I’m not an idiot and realize that may not be correct but I’m wondering your opinion on the errors with the various testing methods. Thank you sir.

  • I started watching you last week, and truly enjoy watching your videos. I am on a weight loss journey as well. I’d like to lose 50lbs. I wish you much success and look forward to watching your weight loss journey.

  • Those graphs were really a waste of time…trying to show four things on one graph is more complicated than just explaining the simple concept.

  • Fantastic video! I could relate to them all. My biggest issue is the Perfectionist or ‘all or nothing’ attitude. Ive been working on it and its a game changer for me. Thanks for all your great info and the work you put into your videos ❤

  • I don’t think she’s done anything wrong. Her life seems to actually be reflective a healthy, young woman truly LIVING her life, with all the ups and downs in emotions and weight that entails; nothing totally out of whack though. I cannot believe some of the comments you displayed; netizens saying her arms look short and fat in 2019, when they look completely and totally healthy/normal. I bet all of those people behind the screen have severe eating disorders or are just lonely men trolling.

  • I’m here for this journey �� I’m still researching what’s going to be the most sustainable for me but I’ll be starting my own next month! Can’t wait to follow you through this journey

  • Years ago, I lost a bunch of weight. When my situation changed, I thought I wasn’t being completely stupid. I was wrong. Ended up putting on ten more pounds than I’d started it.

    Now I’ve lost a buttload, but I’m fairly sure my metabolism is kinda wrecked. I can’t afford to cut calories and I haven’t lost an ounce in the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately, I’ve got another 10-15 lbs left to lose. It kinda sucks.

    I’m basically the living embodiment of the negative what Layne’s talking about here, unfortunately. Too bad he didn’t write his book back then! LOL

  • Fat or not, her visuals will always stun me. I don’t even mind a little bit of fat if she is healthy. And she is an idol. They sing and dance live, practice all day. So they need the stamina and healthy amount of muscle to be able to do that. Korea just wants stick and bones. It’s worse for girls and women. every female outfit you see, is revealing either their stomach or legs. So if they gain weight they can’t even hide it properly. Whereas guys can atleast, wear covered clothes and avoid the criticism. Please change this mentality. I feel bad for female idols and korea is gonna lose so many talented and beautiful idols to this shitty mentality.

  • Almost done with the bookgreat read and the information in the book is invaluable. Basically, the only book people should read to properly and most importantly maintain healthy weight loss. When looking at an overall goal of fat loss, how long should you continue to cut calories until you break or refeed? When you hit for fat % goal or periodically as you go down to your goal in order to properly maintain a reasonable metabolic rate. No timeline established or given? Thanks!
