I am on a standard ketogenic diet, is this the best diet for an endomorph to lose weight?  Im also involved in hiit cardio 5x week.

Round person: The ketogenic diet is high in fat and low in carbohydrate. There is much debate as to how healthy this diet truly is. I have seen patients have temporary success with this diet only to gain weight back when they resume a normal diet. I personally think the best way to lose weight for good is to eat smaller portion sizes and maintain an active lifestyle. ...Read more

Im 5ft7 & weigh 76kg i also workout every day, I am an endomorph, will i lose weight if hv around 1.5grams of protein & 0.5grams of fat per day?

Im 5ft7 & weigh 76kg i also workout every day, I am an endomorph, will i lose weight if hv around 1.5grams of protein & 0.5grams of fat per day?

How to loose weight: First, you want a balanced diet, and that means at least 56 grams of protein for a man, not 1.5gm! second, assuming you've done the easy adjustments and removed the bad carbs like soda, juice and sugar, weight loss is about calories in vs. Out. To loose 1 lb per week you need to cut back 500 calories per day from what you normally eat. Max target for healthy weight loss is 2lbs (7, 000 cal less/wk). ...Read more

Begin an exercise routine - find something that you enjoy as you'll be more likely to keep it up. Also watch your calorie and sugar intake and portion size. Programs are great since there is accountability and encouragement. ...Read more
