In Project Zomboid, your character’s fitness level can be increased by participating in activities that use physical exertion, such as jogging and sprinting. This can also improve your character’s nimble and sprinting skills, which will allow them to run faster and with less stamina cost. One way to increase your fitness level is to spend four trait points to get the “Fitness Instructor” occupation, or you can simply try to maintain an ideal weight. In Project Zomboid, the ideal weight range is between 75 to 85 kg. Being within this range can provide a number of benefits for your character, including increased experience gain for certain skills and improved endurance and speed.
To lose weight quickly in Project Zomboid, you can exercise regularly by doing squats, push-ups, sit-ups, and burpees. Just be aware that your character may receive negative statuses the next day if they overdo it. You can also lose weight by sleeping often, as this will burn calories. Finally, focus on eating healthy, non-processed foods that have high quality. Processed foods are high in calories and fat and should be avoided if possible. Instead, choose non-processed foods, vegetables, and fruits, which are lower in calories and fat.
It is up to the player to decide what weight is best for their character in Project Zomboid, but if your character is overweight or obese, it is advisable to try to reach a weight within the normal range of 75 to 85 kg. If your character’s weight is above 100 kg, they will suffer from damage. A weight between 85 and 100 kg is considered obese, while a weight between 65 and 75 kg is considered skinny. If your character’s weight is between 50 and 65 kg, they will be considered emaciated.

To improve your character’s fitness and strength, you can participate in exercises that focus on different areas of the body. These can be accessed through the Exercise menu in the Health Tab, and include exercises like squats, push-ups, and sit-ups. Exercising regularly can increase your character’s muscle strength and endurance, and can also reduce the severity of muscle fatigue caused by that exercise.
In terms of nutrition, each food item in Project Zomboid has a quality known as “calories,” and paying attention to this quality can help you maintain a healthy weight. Processed foods are high in calories and should be avoided if possible. Instead, choose non-processed foods, vegetables, and fruits, which are lower in calories and fat. You can also lose weight by sleeping often, as this will burn calories.
