Have any /wiz/ards spent time and effort and gotten fit? Has it changed your mental outlook at all?

 No.182474

I went from about 30% to 15% bodyfat but it took immense willpower.

I was supposed to build muscle after that but I was too depressed, it was a gigantic effort to even get out of bed let alone lift heavy weights.

I guess it can be done, but if you have depression you need almost superhuman mental capabilities to get through the drudgery, the diet, everything.

Yes, it absolutely did change my wellbeing and mental outlook. I felt happier, more balanced when I was at a normal weight instead of overweight. My mental clarity increased.
Normies also for the first time in my life treated me normally instead of with contempt.
And customer service, restaurant folk etc. called me sir instead of ignoring and gawking at me.

How you look and how much you weigh has a huge impact on life, but I've ballooned back up to about 25% body fat because I don't really have anything to live for.
With nothing to live for, the calorie restriction is no longer worth it and it's too easy to binge again for easy dopamine.

Yes. I was obese going in to my 20s and after a mixed bag of depression and poverty I was forced to lose weight, but in time I came to recognize that being a healthy size felt so much better. I was breathing better, sleeping better, and overall just felt good physically. Things have cheered up since then and I've been on a few health binges to keep my energy up, and have gone on quite a few exhausting walking holidays that I wouldn't be able to do with any more bodyfat than what I have now. A few weeks back I completely cut fried foods, salty snacks, and sugars out of my diet. I'm still a very hungry person though so I can eat a pound of cheese or a whole pack of steaks in one sitting if my wallet permits it.

I'd like to build up a great amount of muscle to feel even better, so I've been doing light lifting and other assorted exercises to get some blood back in my appendages, but I'll need to learn from other bodybuilders before going in seriously so I don't screw it up somehow.

I actually got pretty fit back in 2011/2012, even managed to do 1/2/3/4
It was really great the whole having a goal in mind and to follow it thoroughly from a skeletal guy to becoming buffer than most people around. Taught me a lot about self discipline and how rare the thing is.
Emotionally I was pretty sound, then again I was on SSRIs as well.

Sadly that didn't change much about my life, despite being buff I was still a sperg that couldn't deal with people, with no friends/gf, still living with parents and eventually lost interest on the whole thing.
I still believe exercise is really important to keep a mental well being though doesn't have to be weightlifting as most male oriented imageboards/forums make you believe.

 No.182488

getting fit doesn’t matter I’ve found, it’s enough to just eat clean healthy meals and get some mild exercise like walking around your house a bit or doing some chores, muscles are pointless in modern day and most people who build them just end up getting fat once they stop exercising. So control yourself, eat healthy, get up to walk from time to time, that’s the secret to better mental health

Honestly I think muscle building is some typical macho male meme right next to “nofap” and extreme beard grooming garbage, it’s stupid

>most people who build them just end up getting fat once they stop exercising

ignorant people are quick to talk about things they know nothing about. in reality:
muscle tissue is metabolically more active and burns more calories than fat tissue. The more muscles you have, the bigger your resting energy expenditure, which means that your body burns more calories “while doing nothing”.

No, maybe if you're a bodybuilder or one of those meatheads. You don't have to obsess over your caloric intake.
>just eat less and don’t waste you time/money on having pointless muscles
Building muscles and strength training is about your health. How is it pointless having something that improves your health and reduces the risk of diseases?

 No.182509

what matters to one's health is physical activity in a very broad sense, not strength training or sports or any other tryhard shit that's constantly and counter productively shilled to the public.
we've never been this obsessed with sport yet have never had so many people ill from a lack of activity, yet the answer from the meathead is… more pointless sport. running to go nowhere, moving stuff around that doesnt have to be moved and so on.
humans have probably never run so much as today, yet we don't walk as much as we used to. in a normal environment we should not have to over compensate by burning energy pointlessly.

I keep myself in decent shape, that is to say lean and however much muscle I can get by doing basic calisthenics and some moderate cardio. I'm generally very lethargic and the thought of having to lift heavy weights or doing really exhausting exercise is enough of a deterrent to not bother. I can do ring dips, currently working towards one arm pullups and pistol squats, which is probably still fitter than a lot of the population.

Now I lost 23 kgs during the pandemic but it's such a pain. Fortunately now I'm good at keeping my progress but shedding the weight is such a pain…
I don't want to eat junk, I just want to be at normal weight. Losing another 25 kgs but it's slow as fuck

 No.182800

Possibly not exactly fit, but wondering if anyone else here just does passive diet restriction? When I was a kid I would just eat everything my parents gave me and not really think about it, I wasn't extremely fat but I was chubby and people thought I was a young girl lol.

But basically now I'm the lowest weight/healthiest I've ever been, and all I do is just not eat so much food and make sure what I do eat is healthy and nutritious. I have 3 meals a day, breakfast and lunch I make a bit small because my mom always makes large portions for dinner and I got now way out of that, occasionally I will have a snack(peanut butter, prunes, nuts), and I swapped out soda and milk for water and tea. It's sorta amazing that just a little thought put into your diet can make such a big difference.

I was about 189 pounds(six feet tall) at my highest and now I sit at 165. I could probably do with losing 5 more pounds but I think I'm alright where I am. I am a lot more confident when I go outside because I don't worry about the muffin top I get or the kinda neck fat that hides my jawline. But don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to attract a mate or anything, it's just a sorta self-respect thing. Eat good, look good, feel good. And despite weighing less my healthier diet gives me a lot more energy.

>self-respect is an unconcious desire to find a mate though

I would agree with this statement.
Being physically healthy/attractive is in-and-of-itself satisfying only because the instinct that drives us to be sexually/socially selected is so strong as to be self-rewarding.

While there is an argument for being healthy simply to feel energized, stable and healthy - which you'll probably raise - that only goes so far. People wouldn't care about looking good or being strong (or w/e else) if it didn't provide them either with the reality or imaginable reality of sexual/social prowess - that's where the bulk of the satisfaction comes from. You're kidding yourself if you think otherwise.

 No.182873

Yes I was fit for a few years until other life events removed the focus from fitness. If you're a wagecuck, it's a lot more work on top of that. You need to eat a fuckton of food and if you want to do it cheaply, you have to cook it yourself. In addition to the 1 hour or so of gym time that you must fit in with your office commute and wagecuck unpaid overtimes.

If you can devote the time and effort to it, I recommend it. People, especially succubi, treat you way better. They won't jump on your dick or anything, you need way more than just fitness for that, but at least not all of them are rude or dismissive in regular everyday interaction. Also, it's an ok hobby and can be enjoyable and you feel like you have more energy for things.

No one in this reply chain even mentioned going to the gym or any of those things you listed, you claimed that (basically) not looking like a fat raggy homeless man means you are trying to be sexually attractive, then you tried to backtrack and say a haircut and staying slim is fine because doing that is somehow no an attempt to look better, now you're trying to add in all these things no one even brought up, like going to the gym, styling your hair, wearing fashionable clothes, trimming your beard, etc.. You cognitive dissonance is unreal, you're just coming up with random shit to support your flawed argument that if you have self respect you are trying to have sex.

I would argue that only with the mindset of a wizard can allow one to sculpt their own body to their own desire. Those that pursue a Adonis like body for vain pleasures often fail because of such petty goals . And those that do succeed tend to lose their body after becoming complacent after mating/marriage. To the average person, finding a mate is the desired result. To the muscle wizard, at least, finding a mate is just a byproduct of that self-respect.

I guess at first it makes you feel good to feel and see progress in yourself but after a while working out just becomes something you do because you "have" to. It stopped being a hobby for me and just became something expected like eating.

Men will frequently comment on my body and joke around about how big I am. succubi don't bother me about it because as some guys in the gym have put it, I look like a supervillain and am basically terrifying to them.

As a wizard who was fit in his teens and 20s, it does help. Normies will assume you're like them and generally treat you positively. Succubi will also be more pleasant initially and generally but it isn't going to get them to jump on your dick unless you're naturally really attractive. If you're a wizard at heart, it's not going to help much in that regard.

I would say in general it is a net positive. I found that getting a job was much easier even without education and that people were more pleasant. If you have the discipline for it, it's a good thing.

I've been basically perma obese my entire life. I lost 45 kg and maintained a healthy BMI for close to a year. I felt much better, it's such a night and day difference. A few of my health ailments disappeared and I had much better sleep quality.You can move so much better. Made the most difference wageslaving because I could keep up with the workload and coworkers let me be because I was getting everything done on time. I was on high dose ssris when I lost all the weight. I tapered off and then put most of the weight back on the last two years. I guess the pills made me numb/stable enough that I didn't need to binge eat to deal with negative emotion anymore.

I didn't see much cognitive improvement when I wasn't fat. Probably because I was so heavily medicated at the time.

Hey dude, I just wanted to say don't worry about it. Yeah gaining back the weight you had to suffer to lose sucks I experienced it too.
I think it was 7 years ago when I had my last successful weight loss. I dropped 22kgs (was still obese). Then I failed out of college and depression did it's work and I slowly gained it all back + 4kg.
Now during the pandemic I managed to lose 23-24 kilograms. I'm almost at that weight, I was at 22.
Hopefully I won't fail this time.
My advice is to just do it anyways.
There is no good time to start a new diet. If you start all motivated then eventually the motivation is going to run out and you may fail again.
But if you start when it sucks and you push through the sucky times you'll have a better fighting chance during the bad times.
Just build discipline.
I liked your story, it makes me hopeful that I can get rid most of my sickness and be able to live a relatively normal life because I don't know how it feels like being slim, I was a fatty since I was 10.

Before I started getting fit I was in a real bad spot mentally and physically. I was starting to experience all these random health problems so I decided I had to do something. I started with just walking for a mile at night. It was a relaxing way to spend the night so I quite enjoyed it. I then knew I needed to control my weight so I started eating once a day. Then I started using the exercise bike and that's when it really changed for me. I experienced that "runner's high" and even when I was in a bad mood I felt amazing. Then it really just took over my life for me. Now I do more lifting and some hard cardio 4x a week.

Physically I look better. Physically I feel better. And I suspect that endorphin rush I get from exercising is no accident. I believe we are biological machines and exercise/diet are tools we can use to maintain our bodies.

Doing 5x5 Stronglifts, I know I could be doing much more, I have terrible discipline so if I workout 2 times a week and don't drop below 8000 steps a day I feel like I'm succesful. I don't eat a lot, courtesy of anhedonia.
It doesn't really change my outlook on life, it's another chore. I'd upload myself into a android body or take some miracle drug like in anime if it was possible.

I was a wrestler in High School, and made it to semifinals for state.
To the extent that it could impact my mood or disposition, it was entirely negative.
If you do not learn to despise people in fitness, then you probably were not immersed in it enough, and definitely not in a sport that borderline-requires <5% bodyfat levels for serious participation. Maybe you played something like baseball where lardballs make it on the professional stage.

Very true. Could have something to do with the protestant work ethic tripe, sport as we know it is mostly of anglo-saxon origin after all.
The moralism around it has always made me sick, all the tired cliches on hard work, team work, camaraderie, fair play, that kind of saccharine nonsense spewed out machinally in the media, especially when there's a big event like the olympics to sell, and you know it is getting harder nowadays.


>If you do not learn to despise people in fitness, then you probably were not immersed in it enough

lol. More generally I would think it is true of most activities with an obsessive focus on performance and showing off that you are dedicated to an extreme degree. It is very visible with fit freaks because they tend to wear their tryhardism on their sleeve, so to speak… and sometimes literally, when they tape smartphones to their arms or use these spying devices that track their heart rate or what have you.

I moved back in with my dad after C19 made my job go remote. Quit drinking alcohol and started workin out in backyard with a rusty old 20lb barbel I found in his garage and cleaned up with a wire drill brush. Have lost about 40lbsand and have a lot more mental clarity and energy and don’t have the feeling of impending doom anymore and can enjoy stuff like reading books and playing RuneScape again. People are much nicer in public when you look more fit I have noticed. Overall I’d recommend it.

I know many people like that. If you were obese as a child, you are almost certainly stuck that way for life.

Going from being thin all your life to overweight very suddenly is a form of body horror. Is it the same going from obese as your default weight to thin? Not recognizing yourself in the mirror is depressing. It becomes unavoidable as you age but I'm trying to delay any appearance change as long as possible.

What I'd try in such a desperate case:

>meds can affect your metabolism

>leave carbs, all of them
>leave red meat and dairy of any kind
>reduce your schedule of food intake, like just from 9am to 2pm and no more until next day
>try a keto diet for a month

You may experience some balance, but can't guarantee a miracle. Even if some cases are given.

P.D: You are surely in a pre-diabetic state.

Lifting is my main way of coping with reality. I have spent many years studying lifting and nutrition and have a massive folder of programs that I study to learn about better programming.

Despite all this I'm still not that big and pretty weak just because my genetics are trash. At least I'm not obese anymore though.

Your testosterone levels go down but its still plenty possible to be fit at that age naturally. Keep in mind that things like weight lifting and a proper diet raise testosterone on their own or like the other guy said just hop on TRT and become a total beast in your older years.

I do a relatively mild workout plan focused on mobility, maintaining health, and preventing injury. Mostly using exercises I found from "kneesovertoesguy" on YouTube, who is a basketball player that had several knee injuries and successfully rehabilitated them through exercises. Mostly I do this because I don't want to experience physical pain or impairment as I age, especially since I will be living alone without other people to help me if I am disabled. I also tried training martial arts for a while, which was a fun hobby and good exercise but the gym shutdown for pandemic lockdowns.

As far as OP's original question about mental outlook, the answer is yes and no. I never lost or gained a ridiculous amount of weight from working out, because I was always pretty skinny, so I don't know about a huge change like that. However, I would say that after a decently hard workout I get a feeling of a kind of mental reset, where my mind becomes more clear. The mind is like a pipe that gets clogged up with different thoughts, and then forcing the body into exerting itself clears up the thoughts somehow. After a decently hard workout I get a temporary increase in mental clarity, focus, and mood because of this effect, but it doesn't last for more than a day at most.

completely right bud.
see thing is, your body is more than muscles, you have a vulnerable
foundation made of tendons, ligaments, nerves, joints and all the other good stuff even if burgermedia doesnt tell you. there is more to health than drinking your protein and doing biceps curls, atleast this is what they told me at the fitness trainer license meeting. but in the end, people have to make up their own mind, they dont need me to help them out you know.

I don't know about fit. I do a bit of exercise on most days, just bodyweight stuff usually. Bought a kettlebell recently so I'll start using that as well. I don't really care about getting super big or strong, I just want to stay lean and healthy. I generally don't enjoy exercising so I only do the bare minimum. Sometimes I go bouldering though, that's kind of fun and judging from how people look at me when I climb the pegboard, I seem to be moderately fit compared to normgroids there.

i have a bone problem that fucks up my feet and ankles so its impossible to do cardio without pain. so im a fat fuck. i tried lifting but i have a shit frame so i put all the muscle on my lower half and none on my upper body. i quickly stopped so i didnt lift myself into trex mode.

I had the same impulse upon reading his post, but when you think about it, getting fit in order to improve one's social standing is a pretty valid reason and probably the biggest one. Yes, you are healthier which has intrinsic benefits. You won't get illnesses related to being out of shape, you will live longer, you may have better mood, but ultimately are these reasons good enough to motivate most people to exercise? The answer is no. The things that do motivate people to exercise are precisely what he posted, ie what people will think. People work out to be attractive and to be respected and even admired.

this whole thread's existence just proves my point though. if you dont lift for validation, then why make this thread and post in it. and just look at all the replies of people saying they get noticed by succubi. you are coping hard if you dont think that every one here that lifts is a sex having normalnigger
