This article is going to share 7 tips how to lose 100lbs while you’re stuck at home.
So it’s the pandemic and you are stuck at home. A lot of people are putting on weight because we’re limited in the kinds of things we can do. And when you’re at home, you eat.
I have seen stories and watched videos on YouTube of people gaining around 20 to 40 lbs in the last few months.
But I also see stories of people losing weight. If you got a hundred pounds or more to lose, read this. These are some tips to help you lose a hundred pounds or more starting today.
Why Lose Weight?
When you’re carrying unnecessary weight, it doesn’t feel good and it’s not good for your body.
Excess body weight can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity-related disease.
Shed that weight, feel better and be healthier. This is how you do it.
How to Lose 100lbs
First losing weight is hard.
It’s a different experience for everyone but definitely a journey for all. Whether you have a lot or a little wait till we’re definitely benefit from these weight loss. Keep in mind I am no expert and I’m not giving you advice I’m just sharing a Roundup of Top Gear now that I have learned over the past few months
How to Lose 100lbs in 6 Months
This sounds crazy doesn’t it.
I always thought losing 100lbs happened in a year or longer.
But, funny enough I have been seeing more and more stories on Tik Tok about losing 100lbs in just 6 months.
How are these people doing it?
Here’s what I’ve found..a common thread:
- More water intake
- Changing diet
- Embracing a healthier lifestyle
- Documenting the process
While recording your process is not a requirement, it definitely holds you accountable.
This YouTuber I recently found and totally fell in love with her. She takes an approachable technique to losing weight. She’s funny as hell and so enjoyable to watch. Check her out.
And people love her, she’s grow to over 100K followers super fast.
Drink More Water
Drinking more water is great because water is good for you. So you’re getting healthier by drinking more water and at the same time, drinking more water can help you stay full longer.
Try drinking a glass of water before a meal and you’ll notice that you eat less. Other than that, if you just drink more water, keeping everything else the same you will probably lose weight from the water alone.
I have seen so many articles of people losing 7 to 10 pounds in a week just by upping their recommended water intake. I have seen guys lose up to 20 lbs in a month changing nothing but their water drinking habits. While these results are not typical, it is nice to know that this small change in upping your water intake can help produce some big results in your health and weight loss.
Limit Your Snacks
Cut back on snacks and if this means you’ll enjoy larger meals, do that.
When you graze all day long, it’s hard to know when you’re full. You will get into the habit of just eating and that will cost you with your weight.
Limit snacks and track your results.
Do Intermittent Fasting
Eat.stop.eat. That’s intermittent fasting.
You have an eating window and a fasting window. A lot of people start with an 16/8 fast. You fast 16 hours and eat 8 hours. Your fasting window can include the time you’re sleeping.
An example might be eating from 11am to 7pm and fasting from 7pm to 11am. So, in the evening hours you will be mostly sleeping and in the morning you will just have a late breakfast or a brunch.
Intermittent fasting is so powerful.

Get moving. While abs are made in the kitchen and you can lose weight without exercise. The truth is, exercise helps you be healthy. You get your body moving, sculpt and tone, and it makes you feel good.
I started walking 20 minutes in the evening after a long hiatus of not working out and after just a few weeks, I finish my walks faster, I hurt less after the walk, I feel great the next day and it’s relaxing for me. It’s something I actually look forward to and I love how walking makes me feel stronger.
Walk around the block, walk your dog, park further away when you shop and walk, take the stairs not the elevator, invest in exercise equipment and workout in your gym, etc.
I don’t know about you, but for me, if I’m busy, I naturally eat less.
Put my head in a good book or swamp me with work or house chores and I totally forget about eating. My hunger pangs still come, don’t get me wrong, but I push it away until I finish my work.
Does this happen to you?
Try keeping yourself busy.
Get a planner, write down your tasks for the day, overload yourself just a little bit to make sure you stay nice and busy throughout the day and this will help you avoid mindlessly snacking because you are bored.
Meal prepping helps with portion control, it saves you time and saves you money.
Why aren’t you doing this?
You can get more than a week’s supply of meal prep containers at Aldi or Walmart for like $10.
Plan your meals for the week, batch cook, meal prep and stuff it all in your fridge or freezer. When it’s time to eat, pop out a meal and heat it up.
It’s like lean cuisine frozen dinners but much tastier and homemade.
For me, nothing is better in my weight loss journey than to get support from others. Sometimes we don’t get support at home and even if you do, more support is an awesome thing. You can get it online.
Join Facebook groups, weight loss forums, weight loss program chat rooms, etc.
Read the stories of others, get inspired, share your story, connect, make friends. This helps, trust me.
