I was looking for some guidance on how to really lose weight.
For reference im 6ft 3in and roughly 230lbs
Prior to my 21st birthday I began taking my health more serious. Eating better working out daily and cutting out drugs and alcohol. On my 21st I contracted corona virus and everything went down hill really fast. I was in and out of the hospital and found myself gaining weight after the early symptoms went away because i contracted some long term symptoms. My heart rate was extremely high as it would spike to 135 just walking up the stairs. Resting it would sit at high 70s low 80s. I got it checked out and no one could find an issue. Well now im almost back to normal and Im trying to work on myself.
My freshmen year of college instead of gaining the freshman 15 i lost 30lbs. It was in an unhealthy way (not eating) but it was due to my detest for the schools food. Then i was around 200lbs maybe less.
For sleep I usually dont sleep till 2-4am due to insomnia post covid. I wake up around 1:30pm (Im in college so its ok haha)
For food i usually skip breakfast since im up late and eat two meals a day. MY meals before were awful so its something im really trying to work on. Ive been adding my meals to myfitness pals and im extremely lacking in calories usally 500-1500 pre day. I eat alot of chicken but also carbs. For reference i shy away from alot of vegetables but ive been trying to eat the ones I do like. Im a broke college student too with limited access to cooking equipment, just a range.
For exercise Ive been boxing daily for an hour working on cardio mainly I have a bit of a gut from corona. Ive also been doing other cardio like crunches, planks, and some others. Im hoping to add some weights in, in the coming days.
If you have any recommendations for weight loss or my current plan please let me know!
