    If somebody loves eating junk food then how exactly can he lose weight without giving up on his taste?

    well, if your eating habits have led you to a situation where you are, it is obvious that some things you need to change ... if you eat junk food 1-2 per week, and if the other food is fine - 4-5 times per day, based on proteins, I see no reason not to lose weight

    It means if we workout a little more and continue eating what we love to eat then we can prevent weight gain, isn't it?

    If you want to lose weight,then firslty you must need to avoid junk food totally. But if you can't able to make it fast then you just need to workout out that much so that you could burn those extra junk caloies. But make your first preference is to avoid it.

    Junk food is BIG NO NO!!
    not for weight loss, but for overall health.

    You can’t lose weight with the same eating habits that put the weight there. Change your attitude, set some new rules and take responsibility.

    Hi,
    This is a great question as I absolutely love junk food! It might not be healthy but we can't all be that good! I personally eat 5/6 days a week on plan and work out during these days, usually for about 45mins to 1 hour mostly weight training (although to lose weight cardio is very effective!) On my days off plan I will eat well till the evening and then eat my favourite bars of chocolate and packet of crisps and then have a takeaway
    I personally take this as my day off so I won't workout although I would advise to workout as I'm not trying to lose weight at the moment just build muscle! Cheat meals are advised rather than a big pig out but I'm an all or nothing kind of person..
    Try HIIT for best results which is good if u get bored while running/cycling etc. For 20mins altogether: sprint for 30-60seconds then either stop completely to catch ur breathe or slow right down to recover and repeat (try recovering for 1-2mins at most)
    Hopefully this LOAD of information makes sense X

    I think that's quite a negative reply.. you only live once if you want that bar of chocolate have it, but make sure you eat healthy the majority of the time, drink lots of water and exercise!

    In all honesty, you can eat what you want and still lose weight. The important thing is being honest about the calories you're taking in. I'm not sure what your stats are, so I don't know how many calories you should be eating to lose weight. Figure that out, then just eat that many calories (or less) of junk food and you'll still lose weight. I know a friend who lost weight this way. Myfitnesspal is a great way to track calories if you are interested in this approach.

    That being said, most people find it easier to cut back on the junk food and eat more healthy foods because they tend to be lower in calories and you eat more volume for the same caloric content. It's possible to succeed by not changing what you eat and focusing completely on the calories, but you might be hungry because you'll definitely have to cut back (possibly a lot) on the amount.

    Your body is made of 80% of what you eat which mean if you eat JUNK FOOD, your body will be made out of the JUNK. Do you really want that to happen? To me, eating junk food once a week doesn't increase my weight, but I try not to have it much since I don't want to get those toxins into my body. The more toxins you have, the more fat your body will preserve because your body would use fat as the protection shield to protect the vital organs from getting those harmful substance.
