Don’t overindulge, find people to support you, join a gym, and run marathons in the morning. sounds like BS, doesn’t it? That’s the advice I recently gave to my sister after she got pregnant and was trying to lose all that extra weight. Guess what? It didn’t work; the only thing that worked was weed. The question is why?
Here is the thing, in my opinion, there is nothing wrong with being fat if it doesn’t affect your health, the issue is, society has programmed most of us to think that if you are fat, you are unattractive or you will die soon.
What’s your reason for choosing to lose weight today?
If you do it because you want to impress someone, you will fail, on the other hand, if you do it because you want to improve your health and feel good, you will succeed. So don’t try to lose weight because you want to look like Rihanna, do it for you.
By now, you should know that cannabis affects appetite in two ways. It can either improve it or kill it.
You are here because you don’t want to look down and see nothing but man-boobs, gut, and feet, right? Now pay attention.
How to Beat the Munchies
The reason why some marijuana users remain fat and others lose weight is self-control; the thing is, while high, you will want to eat almost anything in sight. If you do that and sit on your butt all day, it is highly likely that you will gain weight, think about it, what’s in your fridge right now?
I’m guessing there is cheese in there, meat and other unhealthy foods that taste good, right?
Apart from eating too much, there are a number of reasons why you may be obese, for example, you could be fat because:
- You don’t exercise
- You eat to keep yourself from feeling lonely or to mask depression or anxiety.
- Healthy foods are expensive
- Certain hormones
- Some medications make you fat
- You don’t get enough sleep
- Improper eating habits
Eat Before You Smoke
All it takes for you to eat everything that’s in your fridge right now is a single bite of something that tastes good. You see the problem with marijuana is. It makes food taste better, meaning, if you start eating while high, controlling yourself becomes difficult. Eating before you smoke solves the problem before it happens.
The point is, if you are a marijuana user, don’t skip meals.
Skipping meals will make you fat, why?
If you skip meals, you body will go into “survival mode” meaning, you will crave sugar, carbohydrates, processed foods and other foods that taste good. Also, your body will store more energy in the form of fat because it thinks that you are starving. The result of that is. Instead of losing weight, you will gain weight.
Brush your Teeth or Suck on Mints after Eating
The reason for doing that is to get the taste of food out of your mouth.
The good thing about mint is. It makes food taste bad especially while high, as a consequence of that, you won’t want to eat. Ever tried eating immediately after brushing your teeth? If you have you understand what I am talking about.
I know. Pineapple pizza is just a call away, if you make that call or if you have junk food in your house it is highly likely that you will eat more than your body needs while high.
Instead of stockpiling your fridge with unhealthy foods, you should consider keeping healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables in your fridge. If healthy foods are expensive in your area, you should try planting your own garden if you have space.
Marijuana Strains to Help you Lose Weight
A study published on the American Journal of Epidemiology found that the rates of obesity are lower by roughly a third in marijuana users compared to non users. You must be thinking “hold up, are you telling me that if I use marijuana I can eat as much as I want and not gain weight?”
Nope, I am not saying that, the thing is, there are many factors that could account for the connection, for example, some researchers think that the reason why highly religious people are more likely to be obese is because they are substituting one compulsive behavior (overeating) for another (smoking weed).
The good news is.
A number of recent studies have found that THCV rich marijuana strains suppress appetite. What is THCV?
Just like THC, THCV is a psychoactive, but according to studies, it is not as potent. Researchers have found that, at low doses, THCV may suppress the effects of CB1 receptor and at high doses, it may have the opposite effect. The reason why should start THCV extracts is, it will keep you from overeating thus you will lose weight, it is also a powerful anti inflammatory.
Highest THCV Strains
If you want to start losing weight today, you should start using the following strains of marijuana:
- Durban poison
- Pineapple Purps sativa
- Willie nelson sativa
- Skunk No. 1
- Durban cheese
- Red Congolese sativa
Don’t be Lazy
You don’t need witchcraft to maintain healthy weight, all you have to do is burn more energy than you consume. So instead of sitting on your butt all day thinking marijuana will cure my weight problem. You should walk for more than 30 minutes every day, don’t skip meals and most importantly smoke marijuana strains that are rich in THCV.
