Was gettting fat myself over the covid period. Reducing meal size was the key to my getting back to normal and not feeling overweight. Didnt exercise anymore than taking care of my kids. Normal chore stuff. Pretty obvious to me that i was stuffing my face with way too much food. Everyday. Is something you cant ignore, is the obvious answer. Your eating too much food. I can eat whatever i want, but i naturally eat a balanced diet some good some crap, just dont overdo it and im good. Exercise is also helpful but the true answer is to not over eat. Is too easy to over do it. Your stomach will adjust to the size it should be. You will start to feel full on less food and is prob where it should be imo. At first you will feel hungry but trust your not in need and wont die. Will be good for you in the long run. Will be the easiest weight you ever lost if you can control your intake.
