A Diet Plan To Lose 10 Pounds In A Week

If you want to lose 10 pounds in two weeks...and more importantly keep those pounds off, take just two minutes out of your busy day to read this article and learn more. You see, the number one way to lose weight and burn off fat is through proper nutrition. Without proper nutrition your results will be minimal to none. So if you want to lose 10 pounds in two weeks, understand that it is not going to take some miracle diet pill, some type of celebrity fad diet, or some type of late-night advertised exercise machine to get you the results you want.

Now, proper nutrition goes beyond just what it is you eat, it also deals with when you eat and how you eat.

Your body adjusts to your normal daily eating patterns. Because of this, your metabolism will stay steady at a particular rate. Now when you dramatically decrease the amount of calories you take in, this will cause a decrease in your metabolism. If your metabolism is decreased your body would then begin to store calories... as fat!

On the other hand if you want to increase your metabolism, one of the ways you can do this is through a new dieting system called calorie shifting. Calorie shifting can cause a significant boost in your metabolism thus leading to a significant amount of fat loss and will enable you to lose 10 pounds in two weeks. Calorie shifting manipulates your body's memory from what it is and when you eat on a daily basis. This process is what causes your metabolism to increase significantly.

So if you want to lose 10 pounds in two weeks, do yourself a favor and stay away from diet pills and fad diets and try out the new calorie shifting system and watch those pounds melt away!

    • ANSWER:
      You will lose more body fat eating protein and fat (don't eat protein alone) than not eating AT ALL. To lose weight fast eat all you want but nothing but meat, eggs, healthy oils, mayo, butter and half an avocado a day (you'll need added potassium). Keep your fat percentage high. Adding in green vegetables & some cheese will continue weight loss but at a slower pace.

      If you starve yourself, your body will freak out and will want to store every ounce in case it doesn't get nourished again. You need to give it adequate nourishment so it doesn't slow your metabolism down to adjust for lower calories.

      Simple carbohydrates (sugar, flour, bread, cereal, pasta, potatoes, rice) triggers insulin which can store the calories you eat into fat. The more protein you eat the more the fat burning hormone glucagon is released. The more carbohydrate you eat the more the fat storage hormone insulin is released.

      High insulin levels unbalance other hormones. Controlling your insulin level will balance out other hormones & allow human growth hormone (HGH) to be produced naturally so you will gain lean muscle even without exercise. Any exercise will greatly increase your muscle mass with high HGH levels.

      Reducing body fat and increasing muscle mass will have you in awesome shape in no time. Good luck!

  8. QUESTION:
    A diet plan to lose 10 pounds?
    I weigh 140 pounds and 5'4" . I feel uncomfortable with my weight. I want to lose 25-30 pounds really fast but I know that it's kind of impossible unless you do some kind of a cleansing diet or whatever. So for right now, I just want to lose 10 pounds within about 3-4 weeks. or about 2-3 pounds a week. I don't have a diet plan that I can stick to. I mean, first off, when my mom goes to the store, she buys healthy food, but sometimes she buys snacks too, so instead of always eating the healthy food, I sometimes eat the snack food and I really can't control myself to stop. And second, I never feel like excercising. Whenever I tell myself "I'm gonna run a mile later", later comes and then I don't run a mile because I don't feel like it. I just want a diet plan that is easy. If you give me a meal plan of what to eat (stuff that you can find at a regular grocery store) and daily excercises that I should do, that would help. (btw, since March, I have gained about 10 pounds in muscle.
    also, please don't tell me to try any pills, or give me any websites to go to. because most websites that I've visited, you have to sign up for something. I don't want to take pills, sign up for anything, or pay for anything. but... if anybody out there has tried the cleansing diet and knows exactly how to go about it, and/or knows a really good site, then please tell me. I highly doubt my mom will let me sign up for anything, but I will only check out the cleansing diet sites if and only if they are safe and really work. If you did the cleansing diet though and know how to do it by just giving me instructions, then feel free to do so.

    any suggestions for diet plans will be really helpful. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      It is not recommended that you lose more than 2-3 pounds per week. Rapid weight loss can be dangerous & is hard to maintain. losing weight is difficult because 1 lb is 3000 calories, so you must burn 3000 calories per pound you want to lose.

      cut down on your calories, eat lean protein, and whole grains - bread is not bad, so long as it is whole grain & high in fiber, also eat your veggies & drink lots of water. It is best to eat 1200-1500 calories per day, if you eat less than this your metabilism will slow down, making it harder to lose weight.
      NO fast food, no soft drinks (diet or regular) no eating unless you are hungery.

      In order to lose weight & change your body you MUST exercise. Start small and then go big.walk more during the day. Take a walk on your lunch break, walk to the store, aim for 10,000 steps per day a pedomiter is a great idea.
      Do lots of Cardio & weight training. do 30-45 minutes of strength training 3-4 times per week followed by 45-50 minutes of cardio 5-6 times per week. do your strength training 1st, it burns more calories.

      if you really want to lose the weight you are going to have to use dicipline & work hard. your health is worth it!

    How can I lose 20 pounds in 10 weeks?
    Okay, here is the down low. I'm 15, 5'7, female, and weigh 147. I'd like to lose some weight here and there and my muscles to be a little toned before the new school year comes around (August 15th).The plan is not to be super skinny but rather to be fit and healthy. I'd like to weigh up to 125 to 130. Any ideas on how I can reach my goal?
    And I am still 15 so liposuction, pills, and special diets are most likely a no go.

  14. QUESTION:
    How many miles should I run a day, 5 days a week, to lose 40 pounds in two months?
    I'm 5'4, 17 years old, and my weight fluctuates between 231-234 pounds, usually. I have a goal of losing 40 pounds by my senior homecoming, which is in about 10 weeks from now. I know that it is very possible for me to lose 4 lbs a week at least with proper diet and exercise (please no comments about my goal, because being so heavy I will be apt to lose more weight than someone standing to lose only 10 lbs). How many miles is adequate to ensure my goal will be met? I plan to run weekdays mostly, and do it around 6pm, pushing myself until I can't run anymore. I really need to lose a lot of weight. Tips and answers please.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm a lot like you. I'm 17, 5'10 and weigh 250 lbs. "healthily" you can lose 3 pounds per week with exercise and a proper diet so if you stuck to that you could lose 30 lbs. I don't know how many miles to run, but you should be running 45 minutes to 1 hour a day, and remember portion control. When you go to eat, drink a huge glass of ice coldwater and this'll make you eat less because you'll feel full.

      Also, if you want to drop an extra few pounds, you can look into a colon cleanse. I know it sounds gross, but all it is is a special diet you go on for 2 weeks that rids your body of all the nasty toxins and in the process you lose weight too. If you want to look into it I'd recommend this site: http://www.wrc.net/Store/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=400.

      Hope this helps!

  15. QUESTION:
    Any ideas on how to lose 15 pounds in 8 weeks in a healthy way?
    I am 5'3 and 134lbs. I just want to tone up and feel really good. My goal weight is 120lb which I think is good for my height and frame. I am not unrealistic about how I want to look, I've already lost about 15 pounds in three months just from exercise and cutting out fast food. I want to lose the weight because I am graduating from college in May ad will start applying for jobs in about 9 to 10 weeks. I want to feel my best and start fresh at a new job and this is a something I really want. Does someone have a diet plan or any ideas on how I can lose the last 10-15 pounds in eight weeks? Only healthy ideas please, no crash diets or 3-day diets. Thats not how I want to do this! Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      I am one inch shorter than you and used to weigh 137 pounds. I got my weight down to 118 pounds by gradually cutting back on less nutritious foods and gradually increasing physical activity.

      Eat all the veggies you want, other than starchy potatoes. Eat rice, pasta, cereal, and bread in very small portions if you must eat those foods at all. By small portions, I mean 1/2 cup of cereal for breakfast, one slice of bread for lunch, and 1/2 cup of rice, pasta, or potato for dinner. Starchy foods are easily converted to fat for storage if you don't burn them up quickly through exercise.

      Aim for about two 3-ounce servings of meat, poultry, or seafood. A 3-oz serving is about the size of a deck of cards. Include some protein for breakfast, too, perhaps 1-2 eggs, full fat yogurt, or a whey smoothie. Don't be afraid of fat. You need some at every meal to help your body digest fat-soluble vitamins. Good sources of fat are real butter (not margarine), olive oil, and nuts. Meat also has some fat, so if you're eating a fatty meat like hamburger or skin-on chicken, then don't add more fat like olive oil or butter.

      Give yourself one day off a week and allow yourself to eat whatever you want so you don't feel deprived. Unless you've got a genuine binge eating disorder, you aren't likely to eat enough extra calories to make up for what you've cut during the week.

      If you can bear a little hunger, try skipping just one meal a week. If you find yourself hungry between meals, stave off hunger with an apple. The pectin fiber makes your stomach feel full.

      Exercise irregularly. Walk one day for 45 minutes, the next for 15 minutes, and the next day don't walk at all. One day on the weekend, try walking twice a day. Mix high intensity and low intensity exercise. Sprint for 30 seconds, then walk for a few minutes. This alternating pattern burns more fat even after you quit exercising.

      The physiological reason for skipping a meal occasionally and working out irregularly is that your body's metabolism does not notice the lost calories so easily so it does not slow as much to conserve the remaining fat.

      Good luck!

  16. QUESTION:
    How to lose 10 pounds in 1 week? Please help?
    hey ppl im quite short and i weigh around 110 pounds. i really need to lose 10 pounds in a week. i know i'll gain the weight back after going back to my normal diet but i need to lose it for urgent reasons. i need a diet plan that really works for a build like mine. please answer if you've tried it and really really works because i dun wan to do evrythng n realise it doesn't work. please ans! thnks

    • ANSWER:
      That's not possible, unless you literally starve yourself the whole week. If you're really overweight, it can be done in a reasonably healthy way, but you aren't anywhere near big enough for that. Plus, as you mentioned, if you were stupid enough to try it out, you'd just gain it back once you started eating again at all. I don't know what your "urgent" reasons are, but none exist that can justify trying something so idiotic.

      I don't know how short "quite short" is, but I'm guessing you can't actually have more than 10-15 lbs to lose total, if that. Take my advice, and forget about trying to lose 10 in a week. It's not happening, so just try to be happy with a healthy weightloss plan, if you even need that. Eat well, no less than 1500 calories/day, no matter how short you are, keeping a healthy balance. Do cardio for at least 30 minutes at least 4 times/week, and keep yourself healthy.

      Don't be a fool.

  17. QUESTION:
    Is it unrealistic to lose 10 pounds a week ?
    i've seen it done on Biggest Loser but they have special diets and trainers. But in my own situation 17 year old Male,295. Is it possible to 10 pounds a week ? Because i just got suspended from school and i got about 8 weeks till i go back to school. And planning on losing some weight before i go back.. So is it possible ?

    • ANSWER:
      My dude, I'm glad you are taking this negative (suspension) and making it into something positive. That's something you don't see often. I think if you really try, you can do it. Biggest Loser doesn't do anything special in their diets, they just eat healthy. The reason they lose so much weight is because they work out from when they wake up to when they go to bed.

      Since you have 8 weeks with no school, you can definitely do this and succeed. A normal person with school/job would fail miserably. Good luck to you.

  18. QUESTION:
    If you drink 8 glasses water a day, lose 10 lb in week?
    I heard that if you drink 8 glasses of water a day, you would lose 10 pounds a week. Is is true? I'd really like this answered.
    Bonus: Is there I diet plan I could use to lose 10 pounds in a week?

    • ANSWER:
      There really is no safe way to lose 10 pounds in a week. However, cutting out all sodas and sugary drinks can help you lose ten pounds each year. Drinking eight glasses of water a day can help you make healthier choices, keep you feeling full, give you more energy to work out and hydrate you, and all of this paired with healthy food choices and exercise can help you lose weight. However ten pounds in a week is simply too much to lose unless you are truly overweight or obese and have medical attention and permission for training and working out. Good luck!

    will this help me lose weight over the summer? how much? is it possible to lose 20 pounds by september by following this plan? could i lose more by september?

    thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it is possible to lose 20 pounds.
      Follow these steps to get in shape.
      1. Eat about 6 small complete meals throughout the day (fish, almonds, walnuts, and lean proteins in general, plenty of raw fruits and vegetables, and complex multigrain carbohydrates) spaced out about every 2-3 hours. Consume between 1500-2500 calories a day.
      2. Do NOT starve yourself, do NOT binge eat.
      3. Be as active as you can; nothing to do for 10 minutes? Knockout 10 elevated push-ups.
      4. Eat some spicy foods; take a decent amount of vitamin C, and drink between a half-gallon and a whole gallon of WATER a day.
      5. No more soda. Ever.
      6. If you do drink coffee, drink it black.
      7. Do at least 35 minutes of cardio straight at least once a day, at least three times a week, more if you are not trying to put on muscle.
      8. Do a large amount of full body exercises whenever possible (Jumping Jacks, Pull-ups, Chin ups, dips, squats, hanging leg raises, hanging knee raises, back raises, glute ham raises, burpees)
      9. Get at least 6 hours of sleep a night, but no more then 9.
      10. Avoid anything deep-fried, white bread, sprinkles, and any refined sugar.

    • ANSWER:
      go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food after 7
      p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to calculate points or to buy special meals or plans.

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to lose weight is to eat half your daily calories at breakfast.
      2 eggs for breakfast is approximately 140 calories. That's not enough. You need about 500 calories first thing in the morning to refuel. You will be less hungry during the day and eat less later. It's important to feed your body properly or you will end up losing muscle instead of fat. By eating the diet you have set out for yourself and working out for approximately an hour a day, your body will go into starvation mode and you will retain more fat and water. Eating more healthy foods which add up to 1200 to 1500 calories a day plus a decent workout 3-4 times a week will help you lose more weight than busting your butt and starving. Don't forget as well that proper sleep and simple rest is also very important to allow your body to repair itself after working out. Ten pounds is a very easy goal to set. Just remember.. Healthy caloric intake plus exercise and rest is the key.

    thanks so much (:

    • ANSWER:
      When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
      If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
      will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
      underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
      exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
      diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
      after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
      your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
      you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey
      cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your
      diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
      calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
      start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
      most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
      lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
      disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
      your problem areas for men and women. It's not necessarily to become a
      bodybuilder or even join a gym - a couple of dumbbells will help you
      to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

  29. QUESTION:
    Will this diet/exercise plan help me drop 10 pounds within a week or so?
    Here is a list of what I eat and do during the week:

    Breakfast: slice of cantaloupe or any melon or apple/banana with a little side of fat free cottage cheese with 2-3 glasses of water

    Lunch: Turkey sandwich with lettuce, cheese, tomato, and a dab of guacamole with a baggie of carrots and grapes. A bottle of water

    Come home and run 4-7 miles in an hour or so, and lift weights or abdominal workouts

    Had about another 3 glasses of water, half an apple and a banana.

    Dinner: Some sort of meat, a serving of vegetables and fruit with a few glasses of water during dinner and after.

    I try to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day.

    Do you think at this rate of similar eating habits and exercise I'll be able to lose 10-15 pounds by the end of the month? I want to look real good in my swimsuit. I'm not over weight. I'm 15, 6'2'' and 175-180 pounds. I used to be 243 pounds. I don't want the diet to be a permanent thing, but just to drop those extra pounds.

  30. QUESTION:
    What is a good diet plan if i want to lose 10 pounds in 2 months?
    Im 14 years old
    I go to the gym six days a week
    i do 30 minutes of cardio (running, jogging)
    i do situps and crunces, like about 30 a day

    what is a good diet plan to go with this?

    • ANSWER:
      Try a calorie shifting diet, which works by getting you to eat the right food at specific times of the day. Then by rotating it so that your metabolism never gets used to any routine.

      It may be hard to get yourself to carry out the Calorie Shifting method because you will need to create an expert menu.

      All the best!

  31. QUESTION:
    Is this a good diet plan to lose 8-10 pounds in a month?
    I am around 138 pounds and I really would like to be around 115-120 by June. I came up with this diet plan of cutting out all red meat and only allowing myself to eat chicken (not fried) and fish. Also I am cutting out all breads except for one piece of wheat bread twice a week. I'm only allowing myself to eat cheese twice as week as well. Also I drink soy milk now anyways and only water. I plan on excercising at least 4 times a week like hiking, running, crunches, etc. I will eat special k or a bar with soy milk every morning during the week and on weekends maybe eggs and toast for breakfast. Then for the rest of the day, a salad and fruit for lunch and chicken and vegetables for dinner.

    Do you think if i stick with this I could lose the desired weight i want?

    if you have any tips, let me know

    • ANSWER:
      It's doable.. You need to get rid of around 1000 calories a day to achieve your goal.. A slice of bread is equivalent in carbs to entire bag of frozen broccoli, so all in all it's a pretty good cut. That said, red meat need not be fatty.. You can find very lean cuts of beef.. A lot depends on how much exercise you'll be doing and how much of the food you eat you end up eating..

      Overall though, it's very doable.. Just remember to shoot for a deficit of 1000 to 1250 calories a day.. Including exercise.. An hour of moderate exercise is around 300 calories.

    • ANSWER:
      The treadmill do just about nothing to be honest. Cardio for 20 mins or more that is good.. But some weights in there too. It will help burn fat and but on some muscle. But if you don't want to do that then do at least 1 hour of cardio, that's not just a jog around the park.. Its like explosive running, doing cutbacks, acceleration, things of that nature. You could find a trainer at the gym yo help you out. But also remember to eat after you workout if not then what you just did will turn to fat over time. Hope this helps! Good Luck!

      Ps. Its ok to eat granola or a bit of chocolate but not big chunks of it.
      ps. at you hight and weight your perfect were you are

    Help losing 25 pounds in 10 weeks? (Xenadrine Ultra)?
    My goal is to lose 25 pounds in 10 weeks and I have a few questions about how I am doing so...

    My plan is to steadily walk around 3 miles a day, everyday, and eat a strict diet of no more that 1200 calories. I'll be eating anywhere from 600 to 1200 calories, depending on my appetite. My friend said to eat 800 calories for two days, then 1200, but I'm probably just gonna do 1200 a day. Also, I have a supplement called Xenadrine Ultra I will also be taking.

    Any tips or helpful comments? By the way, I'm 15 years old, 183 pounds. I'm trying to get down to 158 because that was where I was before. Then I'm going farther. I'm 5'3".

    i'm 18, 5'2'' and 150.4 pounds. i've planned my diet already. i'll be getting 1200 calories, 30-40g fiber, 60-70g protein and very low sodium each day. and i'll be drinking 2 liters of water a day. but i know that i need to add exercise too in order to reach this goal.

    i have a treadmill, elliptical, stair step machine, bowflex, WiiFit, dance dance revolution for the Wii (with a calorie counting setting), and ZUMBA classes 2-3 times a week. oh, and a lot of the "10 Minute Solutions" work outs are on netflix, so i can use those too.

    what should i do? and how long should i exercise each day? and when in the day should i exercise, or should i break it up?

    thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      At 68 kg (150 lb) your basal metabolic rate is about 68 calories/hour, and your daily energy requirement is about 33 x 68 ~ 2200 calories/day. If you use 500 calories/day more than you eat, you'll lose about 1 lb of fat per week, so if you do reduce your intake by 1000 calories/day to 1200 calories/day, you'll lose about 2 lb/week from dieting alone. (I'm dubious, but read on.)

      You use about 1.5 times your BMR by sitting and doing anything, and about 6 times your BMR while slowly cycling, swimming, or jogging. To burn an additional 1500 calories/day in exercise, you'll have to swim, cycle, or jog for 1500 cal/day / { (6 - 1.5) x 68 cal/hr } ~ 5 hr/day. That won't be much fun if you're only eating 1200 cal/day of food, but that's what it will take.

    im 17 female.

    Just tell me, what to eat everyday like how much of it when and stuff like that, i feel terrible.

    Thanks so much this is really changing my life !

    • ANSWER:
      Eat 1200-1400 calories and exercise for minimum 1 hour 6 days a week, don't let stupid excuses come in your way. Just go outside and run or jog around your neighborhood or a nearby park. Secondly you need to give up all fast food, junk food and processed foods. Have regular 3 meals and one snack. For breakfast, have 2 hard boiled eggs, one slice of whole grain toast and 1 cup orange juice or skim milk. Then eat 2 fruits for a snack. Then have a salad for lunch. Don't eat white rice and don't put any dressing on ur salad•for dinner eat chicken or fish with unlimited vegetables except for potato. Eat dinner at 6:30 and do not eat anything afterwards. Stay away from pasta, sweets, white rice, white bread too! You can snack on fruits throughout the day if you get hungry. Do not eat cereals, not even the healthy ones. Once a week, you can eat at your favorite restaurant. But remember don't forget to exercise atleast 5 times a week. Walking will not show fast results, try jogging or cycling. Drink heaps of water and search up on negative calorie foods when u have the time. Don't go any crash diet, you will gain the weight back, it's not a joke, I've been there.

    A diet plan would be helpful.

    Question:
    How much will I lose in a month If I keep what you've told me going?
    I don't have any equipment at home to excersize with. I don't have a bike either! It was stolen not too long ago.

    • ANSWER:
      Umm don't do anything extreme, you shouldn't actually aim for weight loss you dont look like you even need to actually lose weight more than TONE UP. When you tone up, you may even weigh more but you will look much smaller and firmer because you would have muscle tone...everyone knows someone whos like 180 lbs but they look 155 lbs because they're quite muscular. Try pilates, walking, cycling, stretching, hula-hoop, jumping rope, dancing and eat lots of fruits, veggies, lean protein, and whole grains. Eat low fat dairy too. Dont use any diet pills.

    heres what i am doing right now:

    8:00- I jog 1.5 miles
    9:00- I do 50 situps, 20 pushups (adding 7 more to each every week for the rest of summer)
    10:00- i drink a smoothie that consists of 1 banana, ice, fat free milk, and a carton of yoplait yogurt(whatever flavor i feel like, peach, strawberry, etc.)
    12:00- same smoothie for lunch, otherwise nothing i really want results before school starts
    6:00- regular dinner, whatever my parents make

    :)

    • ANSWER:
      sounds good, but if you really want to build muscle you need to eat protein...lots of protein...at least 45 minutes after you work out...also....dont do every exercise every day, you will end up destroying your muscles, try jogging every other day, pushups every 2 days, and situps you can do like 5 out of the 7 days in a week...i know its frustrating, because i myself hate the feeling of not going anywhere fast...but you need to be healthy and not just toned

  45. QUESTION:
    Do you think I can lose 10 pounds in two weeks on the Special K diet (those with experience)?
    I will be eating only a Special K bar or a small fruit cup for breakfast and then lunch. I will eat my dinner as normal except smaller portions and less carbs. No snacks during the day or night except fruit and only one glass of soda with my dinner. I normally eat sugary food all throughout the day and eat as much as I want up until bedtime. Also, I normally don't get any regimented exercise but plan on taking 15 minute walks each day. That for me is a lot. I have fibromyalgia so I can't do long vigorous workouts. I am about 155 pounds (5'6) and want to start my diet by losing 10 pounds in two weeks. Is this reasonable considering I am young (25) and hopefully have a good metabolism?

    What is your personal experience with this diet? Please no spam about trying other diets. I don't care about other diets just about Special K. Thanks in advance.
    Sorry, but I don't know what a stone is???

    • ANSWER:
      I started the special k diet about 2 months ago and i've lost 2 stone.
      It is hard though i must warn you, as if you eat it after around 7pm it will put weight on you through the amount of carbs it has in it. Good luck!

    I am 120 pounds, and just turned 14 in october. I would like to loose 10-20 pounds. Whats a good diet plan?
    I am 120 pounds, 14 years old, 5'4".
    I was wondering how i could tighten up my body especially my stomach and thighs. I have a very flabby stomach and I want some exercises that can work all over my stomach.
    my mom went on a no carb diet last week and already lost 10 pounds!!
    I was wondering what I should eat if I wanted to go on a little/low carb diet.
    If anyone wants to give me some examples of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. and ab exercises.

    • ANSWER:
      Tigtening a specific are can be difficult at times. The best thing would be to Lose overall fat which would tone up overall. Low and No carb diets like the Dr.Apkins diet is not good for permanent weight loss as the body does not respond to it well. Doing that would not make it easier for you to lose weight, but in the futeure make it harder for you. Im just going to tell you the truth now and please dont get disencouraged by this, but there is no easy way to lose weight you can always do fad diets and all, but non of these realy work.
      For FAT loss I would recommend an excercise system with a simeple nutritional plan. The best excercise program I found and wasnt so difficult and only took 20 minutes to complete. Its called an interval and it is known as the best fat burning cardio. If you want a chart on how to do it effectively you can message me and I will send you a chart. For a simple nutrition plan, for breakfast tuna fish salad is great as it is tasty has ruffage and protein. For Lunch at school having 0 calorie suoup is a great choice because it doesnt have any calories but it keeps you full and all the nutrients in it are extremely good. For dinner Im going to say potatoes with chicken breast(skinless, and low fat) with a serving of greens of your choice. Between meals a good thing to do would be snack to keep your metabolism running. A fruit would be great. If you follow these this should be extremely effective as I did it before and worked really well.

I know crash diets aren't a permanent solution, i am a really healthy person (vegetarian, workout regularly, eat healthy, etc...) and i've lost a bunch of weight the last couple years, and just need to ditch this last 10 pounds before this event.

    Can someone give me a SPECIFIC diet/exercise plan that will help me do this (this being lose the weight, tone up, etc.)? Experience/Expert advice would be best. No lectures about not doing crash diets PLEASE, hahaha;P.

    Thank you so much!

    • ANSWER:
      Eating healthy everyday with loads of veggies and some fruits, whole grains and protein is the best way to stay healthy.

      Try this:
      Eat brown rice, veggies and baked fish for dinner.
      Oatmeal for breakfast with fruit in it.
      Drink fruit smoothies during the day for a snack. Try to eat protein at every meal...for breakfast with the oatmeal, eat a scrambled egg white or a hard boiled egg.
      Eat a salad or chicken/turkey sandwich on whole wheat for lunch. Use olive oil and vinegar dressing...no saucy dressings.
      Drink water only.
      Never eat white or processed foods.
      Try baked sweet potatoes...mmm... Eat spinach salads, not plain lettuce and add all the veggies you want to it. Try red wine vinegar...a few splashes and a little drizzle of olive oil.
      If you want a crunchy snack, cut up a cucumber and put in lite Italian dressing or better yet, half cold water and half white vinegar. I mix mine with some cherry tomatoes too...

      A good smoothie needs a good blender, so make sure you have one, cut up 1 banana, some blueberries (about 10-15) and strawberries (about 5), a cup or so of skim milk, a sprinkle of flax seed (buy a container of it and keep in fridge), a scoop of vanilla protein powder and blend it up, add a bit of crushed ice and you've got a good smoothie. You can add any kind of fruit...I cut up peaches sometimes too or frozen cherries.

      Try reverse crunches, where you lift your legs up and out. Go to SELF.com for good tips...I love their workouts. Walk or run a lot and
      use a stability ball for crunches.

  49. QUESTION:
    What should I do for a serious 10-12 week gym program?
    Stats:

    5'11
    176 pounds
    14-16% body fat (by my scales so that's an estimate but it seems accurate since it's in the average body fat area which I would say objectively I belong to, certainly not overweight)

    I'm looking to get a three month (12 weeks) membership for the gym starting in a week or two and I figure I might as well make the most of it and really condition my body, I want to gain muscle and look more athletic and while I know it won't happen dramatically in 12 weeks, I can certainly get a good start in 12 weeks.

    Logically I'd say in 12 weeks I could gain about 7.5-12.5 pounds of muscle if I go 100% in that time period after looking at websites and doing a few calculations.

    So bascially my objective is gain muscle, obviously I want to do cardio as well but I don't want my cardio to inhibit building muscle, I don't want to lose more weight than I gain bascially.

    For the first two weeks of the twelve weeks I've thought those are really 'trial weeks' in I do all the things available at the gym and see what weight i can lift and what works and what doesn't then design my gym workout plan for the next 10 weeks (which would be a draft considering things change) and also I want to be strict with my diet, according to a calculator for my weight and height if I want to gain muscle 180g of protein a day is required which is around double for a normal male. I'll be buying protein shakes and things but I want to be really strict with what I eat. Cutting out junk food, soda and all that. I know eating small meals frequently increases the metabolism and stops you eating so much junk because you don't feel hungry as often.

    I have ideas of what I want to do but the more info I have, the better off I will be. So any suggestions as to what is best to eat, how to workout, what workouts to do etc. I'd probably be at the gym 4 days a week and I have a dumbell set at home.

    • ANSWER:
      You certainly can see a lot of improvement in 12 weeks. Don't go by your diet by plain calculations, if you ask me you should do a little thinking of your own. Eat a lot of protein. Eggs are high in protein so they are an excellent breakfast choice for bodybuilding. Soy milk is also rich in omega 3 and protein so you can have that as a drink with every meal. Drink atleast 3 litres of water in a day as muscles need water. Get enough sleep! If you want to see faster results, I would suggest that you work out 5 or 6 days week instead of 4. Keep your body active throughout the day, for example: If you visit your gym in the evenings, then maybe do some dumbbell curls in the morning right after you wake up.
      happy bodybuilding! :)

    • ANSWER:
      TONE everything.
      DIET like hell.
      NO SWEETS!!! None. Till whenever you get back.

      Do lunges, push-ups, sit-ups, etc. ANYTHING you think will help!!

      Eat 500 calories less than you already do (unless it will mean eating like 500calories, then just make sure you eat less and eat WELL).

      Run, jog, or play some sport every day. If you have Wii-fit that will help too :)

      IF YOU GAIN MUSCLE, you will look so much better than just a skinny girl.

      Good luck!! And have fun in vegas :) )


5 Week Diet Plan

Simple weight loss plans are often the most effective. When you follow a simple weight loss plan, you're not confused about what to eat, and you don't have to constantly worry about weird combinations of food. Here are five simple weight loss plans that work.

5 Simple Weight Loss Plans

1. The White Diet - This is essentially a low carbohydrate diet, but it's one of the simple weight loss plans. The "white" is to remind you of many foods you should eliminate, including sugar, white flour, white rice and potatoes.

This is not to be confused with the "All White Diet" which prescribes that you eat only white foods, and that has not been shown to be effective for weight loss.

Eliminating these white foods, most of which are simply over processed and provide lots of calories with almost no nutrition, can keep your blood sugar stable and help your body rid itself of fat.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Diet plan to lose 5 pounds per week?
    I am extremely overweight and I would like to lose weight fast yet healthy. Is there a weight loss plan and also exercise plan I can go by? Any suggestions? Please, be as blunt as possible. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Well I think you can do it slowly and healthy enough by eating prepackaged dietary food programs such as Healthy Choice; Lean Cuisine right from your supermarket. The meals are loaded with your daily needs and you can continue with your moderate exercise programs, if any, but in the least get out and walk. Each meal plan consists of about 300-400 calories...add a daily vitamin and you'll be on your way.
      The new HCG Platinum is really fast with garanteed losses of about 1lb/day. This is really hard in the beginning but it gets easy in about a week to achieve. This actually works! With this, it's not optimal to be on a heavy excersize program but look it up...read the many reviews (reviews appear to be edited though so I'm a bit weary of all that I read).

      Choosing an excersize program needs to be something you choose on your very own because, in the very least, you have to like it and enjoy the new lifestyle. The more weight you loose; the more energy you get; the more sculpted your body gets in a matter of time (several months) so you have to have your targets firmly in place in your mind. My suggestion is that you get out and start walking and farther every day. Purchase a couple dumbells from your nearby sporting goods store or just order online. You only need a maximum 40lbs (20lbs each bar in bell increments).

      Get started, get going!

    Lunch-an orange, or other fruits, besides bananas
    Snacks during the day- all veggies, or one of those small baby bell cheeses
    Dinner-a salad with a slice of grilled chucked and a small side of lite zest italian dressing.
    I'd be eating this and exercising 4-5 times a week

  8. QUESTION:
    How many miles do I need to walk walk/jog to lose 5 lbs a week with the diet plan im on??
    I eat 1200-1500 calories a day.I eat alot of Kellog's healthy gronola bars,fruit,veggie burgers,Healthy Choice meals......stuff like that basically..I am not really losing alot of weight like i expected 2.I was wondering how many calories and miles I should do a day to lose at least 4 lbs a week.....Please just give me an amount of calories I should eat a day and how many miles I should run or walk on my treadmill a day.....thanx a bunch!!

    Please no lectures about being on a diet!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Four pounds a week is too ambitious. Each pound is 3500 calories, which means that if you wanted to lose 4 pounds a week you would have to cut 14,000 calories. With weight loss there are no quick fixes, its about changing what you eat and how much you exercise. But just to answer your question... you burn about 100 calories per mile walked... so you would have to walk 140 miles a week to lose 4 lbs a week! I would personally aim for 2 pounds a week and try a combination of increasing the amount you exercise and decreasing the food intake by just a smidge (even 100 calories a day is huge... it's like walking another mile!). The hardest thing about exercising more, is that you appetite goes way up, so you have to make sure you keep that in check or else all the hard work you do exercising will be in vain. Good luck and I wish you the best!

  9. QUESTION:
    Is there a good diet plan that will allow me to lose 2-5 pounds a week?

      you need to get 1-3 hours of exercise a day

  11. QUESTION:
    I want to lose 5 pounds by the end of this week. What is an effective diet I should follow?
    My couch wants me down 5 pounds by the end of this week, any diet plans would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      most important thing is to do this naturally..without medicines, chemicals etc.

      first, it would be best for you to eat as healthy as possible..this will also help you considerably to lose weight gradually and naturally..

      eat fresh fruits, vegetables, drink plenty of WATER..avoid all cokes, caffeines, smoking, alchohol etc. as these also add weight as well as they contain chemicals which disturb your natural bio rythmns as well as brain chemistry. try not to eat too much meat, and the meat you should eat should be "lean meat" such as steamed chicken and rice, or steamed fish with rice..and vegetables,, this should be your staple diet rice and vegetables with fruits..AVOID "JUNK FOOD" and "Fast Food" as this type of food is very unhealthy, lacking in vitamins really and has plenty of fattening molecules which make one gain weight and is not good .

      if you snack,, try fruits with yogurt or fruit yogurt and nuts.. nuts are very healthy for your body .and contain proteins.

      go for walks every evening or morning or whenever you get time each day for 1 hour or 2 hours..make this somewhere you enjoy walking even if you have to drive a bit to there..and make this a daily routine..you will enjoy it once you get into it ..and it makes you feel great after..just walking for 1 hour or 2 hours.

      if you do this..every day for one month ..you should lose at least 10 pounds per month until you get to your natural healthy weight..dont know what your height is,,but look up on the internet what your weight for your height for a female should be ..and when you get to this weight,,your body will look very nice and you will feel very good.

      10 pounds each month in 6 months you should lose 60 pounds..for sure...but no junk food and dont drink alcohol or smoke, dont eat junk..just healthy food with vitamins and walking 1 hour or 2 hours every day..and drink plenty of water..this is guaranteed way to lose weight naturally and for good, if you stick to this, which you should,,as it makes you feel so much more positive due to the vitamins and lack of chemicals making you feel depressed...

      btw, forgot to mention,,just in case you dont know how to really make healthy meals..buy a "food steamer" at your local deparment store..they are very cheap and work very well..as well as buy a "rice cooker" which is also very cheap..eating rice is a great way to get your necessary carbs "healthy carbs" to lose weight and has lots of natural energy inside. you can buy asian rice at most large supermarkets or if you have a local oriental market..they sale quality asian rice.. thai or indian rice is good "jasmine rice".. buy corn or canola oil to sprinkle on vegetables or rice before steaming to add to taste as well as you can buy several nice spices like "cumin" or "Curry powders", etc.just sprinkle on the vegetables before steaming to give nice taste.

      drink "Green Tea" as this is very healthy and helps burn weight faster...you can buy quality green tea at most oriental shops or large supermarkets as well.

      good luck.

    • ANSWER:
      This is what the Toronto Star had to say about it..

      Creative combos of healthy foods would high-five a nod to portion control

      Mar 16, 2007 04:30 AM
      Megan Ogilvie
      Health Reporter

      DIET: The 5-Factor Diet (Meredith Books; .95)

      CREATOR: Harley Pasternak

      CREDENTIALS: A University of Toronto master's degree in exercise physiology and nutritional sciences.

      CELEBRITY EDGE: Pasternak has worked with a near endless list of celebs, including Halle Berry, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Eva Mendes, Mandy Moore, Orlando Bloom, Benjamin Bratt, Rachel Weisz, and Jane Fonda.

      CLAIM: This is supposed to be a simple, yet comprehensive, stand-alone nutritional program that gets quick and lasting results. Dieters are told they will lose weight, get fit and gain more energy following the 5-Factor Diet and exercise plans. Pasternak promises his revolutionary diet will be "the last diet book you'll ever need" and points to the hot Hollywood bodies he's helped shape for proof.

      PROGRAM: It's all about the number 5. Pasternak wants dieters to commit to five short workouts a week and follow a five-week diet made up of five meals a day. Each meal and snack must contain a food from each of the five food categories: a protein, a low or moderate glycemic carbohydrate, a fibre, a healthy fat and a sugar-free beverage. Each recipe only requires five key ingredients and takes only five minutes to prep.

      SIDE NOTES: Pasternak claims dieters can follow his eating plan even while dining out. That's why, he writes, his musician clients love his diet. "The 5-Factor Diet saved me on tour," writes Kanye West in the book. "I can't believe there is healthy food that tastes this good. I've never been in better shape!"

      At a Jamaican restaurant? Pasternak suggests the jerk chicken with rice and beans.

      A hankering for Chinese? Order black-bean and shrimp stir-fry.

      Walk into a cantina? Ask for chicken fajitas.

      ALLOWED: There are 25 "5-Factor Must-Have Foods," which include egg whites, seafood, beans, vegetables, salsa, mustard, jerky, no-flour crackers, water and sugar-free juice.

      PROHIBITED: Nothing. But Pasternak steers people away from all foods made with refined flour and added sugar.

      EXPERT OPINION: "I thought he went a bit overboard with the 5-factors," says Toronto registered dietitian Susan Finkelstein. "It's a good idea to have something that is quick and easy to remember, but I found that it got confusing."

      This diet is supposed to be based on lifestyle changes, rather than on fads. And Finkelstein says Pasternak does do a good job of emphasizing healthy foods, such as whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, healthy fats and lots of fruits and vegetables.

      "I found the recipes at the end of the book were simple and creative and easy-to-prepare," she says. "He wasn't afraid to use convenience items like frozen vegetables and canned beans."

      But, she adds, there is little talk of portion control, one of the most important components of healthy weight loss. And she has concerns that the diet will be hard to stick with over the long term, despite a "cheat" day once a week.

      Some of Pasternak's favourite foods, such as meat jerky as a snack food, can be high in sodium, cautions Finkelstein, who says this could be a concern for people who need to watch their sodium intake.

      EXPERT VERDICT: "I wouldn't recommend this book for weight loss because there is no talk of portion control."

      OUR VERDICT: Can't believe the 5-factors work outside of Hollywood – and beyond the close watch of Harley Pasternak.

    I am trying out for college cheer on april 17th and i have a pageant on may 28th and 29th. I am currently weighing 130 and I want to get down to at least 125. 120 would be great though! I also need exercise tips on toning my stomach.

    I was thinking of doing the p90x. Will I have enough time to see results though?

    any diet tips? I cutting out tortilla and soda for sure. Only wheat bread and very little sugars. will that help? what else should i be doing?

    any tips will help! thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sure if you put forth the effort both in your nutrition intake and your workouts you will definitely see results with P90X. I'd hope that you'd continue the program after your pageant and tryouts to see the most. Although you're not heavy at all, I do think that using a program such as P90X will assist you in getting the results that you're hoping for.

      Always remember...good nutrition and good workout ethic is key for good --> great results. Push yourself, not too far, and you'll be successful.

      Hope this helps...

  14. QUESTION:
    how do i lose 5 pounds in one week? please give specific diet plan and list meals etc?

    • ANSWER:
      meal list? the diet meal lists are spreaded around over the internet. that's too complicated to you.

      my method is pretty simple
      1. don't eat and drink anything with sugur (like coke, sports drink, beers, cookies, ice cream, and other junky foods), and limit your carbohydrate input (a slice bread or two spoons of noodle or rice every meal), and no more that.
      2. drink prenty of water, say 2 liters or more everyday.
      3. don't eat and drink anything after dinner except for water.
      4. better walking or jogging one hour after dinner three times a week.

      the key points are no sugur, more water and a little execises. you can eat what you like but not too much. you may feel hungry sometimes during the day, but you can only drink water, or some sugur free biscuits.

      follow it and guarantee you to lose weight 2.5kg more or less a week. good luck.

    My Exercises consist of cardio Cycling Vigorous 18-20 mph for like an hour
    and lifting weights
    i Weighed about 238 a month ago. now i weigh 241
    Could it be that i gained alot of muscle?
    I hate the scale! help!

    • ANSWER:
      For myself, I have found that weight loss is about 90% diet, 10% exercise. Have you been vigilant about tracking your calories? Ultimately, it's about calories in, calories out. You have to burn 3,500 calories to lose each pound. For a guy your size, you should aim to eat around 1,600 -1,700 calories a day.

      If you are consuming a lot of sodium, you may be holding onto water, too. Drink water to lose water!

      Good luck. You can do it!

    Two Week Diet and Exercise Plan?
    Okay, so there's this game and after-the-game party going on Saturday, Feb. 14th. I have two weeks,starting today, until then. In order to find a cute outfit, I would like to feel a little better and less "bulky" than I do now. I'm not huge, but I want to feel healthier to make my self esteem shoot for the day I shop for my outfit. Here's my plan. For 5 days straight this week and 5 days straight the next week, I plan on hitting up the fitness center on campus for a minimum of 2 hours a day. I plan on drinking lots of water and crystal light, no cokes or juices, no sweets from the vending machines, and no eating cafeteria food (my weakness). I'm going to strive to keep this up past tow weeks though. Think this would help much???

    Oh, and any suggestions on what to eat, like salads, subway, etc. would help greatly!
    I think I will go to the cafe after my workout and just eat salad and fruit. I think that's probably better than eating nothing, right?

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like your off to a great start - you'll lose weight just by cutting out the sugar sodas and the fatty foods...

      you can lose 8 LBS in two weeks on this diet I follow that was given to me by my trainer:

      Morning
      1/2 cup oatmeal - PLAIN no sugar - I use spleanda or equal to sweeten - you can add 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries or cut up an apple

      wait 3 hours then:

      eat 3 oz turkey or chicken and 2 cups of vegetables

      repeat the turkey or chicken and veggies every three hours - you'll eat a total of 5 meals per day -

      Make your food the night before and bring it with you - don't skip any meals -

      This is a great plan because you won't get too hungry and good luck!!

  20. QUESTION:
    What do you think of my 3-week diet plan?
    Morning: Go for a run [burn approx 350 cals] before I eat
    Breakfast: An orange
    Lunch: A cup of soup
    Dinner: An orange

    So technically, I am burning more calories than I eat
    My aim is to lose 15 pounds
    Will this be possible?
    I am currently 137 pounds and am 5'7

    Please, no lectures either :)

    • ANSWER:
      That is a very unreasonable diet plan. The key to any diet is to trick the body into thinking it's full while burning more calories. You don't want to let your body go into "starvation" mode. You should eat your first meal/ snack within an hour of waking up, and then eat every 2 hours after that. Do some type of cardio exercise at least an hour a day, but don't do the same exercise 2 days in a row. You also have to make sure you're getting all the nutrients you need so that you're dieting healthy. First I want you to know that you BMI for your size and weight is 21.5 pounds, which is in the normal/ healthy category. There's no medical need for you to lose weight but if you insist on losing 15, I would suggest you do it healthy. Most people think that losing weight means starving themselves, but the key to a successful diet is to eat 6 small healthy meals or snacks a days. Make sure all your meals contain lean protein, low starch vegetables, healthy fat, and adding something with wheat is optional. Drink at least 8 oz of water a day.

      An acceptable meal plan would be:
      Breakfast- Whole wheat toast w/ pure grape jelly and low fat milk
      Snack 1- orange or any type of fruit
      Lunch- a cup of soup
      Snack 2- chicken salad
      Dinner- whole grain pasta, 100% tomato marinara sauce, small tossed side salad
      Snack 3- fruit or nuts

      It might seem like a lot to eat, but that's the proper way to diet.

    Need A Diet Plan To Help Me Lose 15 pounds?
    I have been on a strict vegan diet for the past couple a months and have lost weight but am now starting to get off of it. I am 15 pounds away from my goal weight and I need a plan that can help me to get the weight off. A 5-6 week plan would be nice
    Now: 180 pounds Goal:165 pounds

    • ANSWER:
      OK, here is a practical answer for you. This is what I have been doing for 1 month and 7 days and I have lost 16 pounds. First, change your eating habits. Get out of that routine that put those pounds on you in the first place. If you shake up your eating habits, you body will need to adjust and burn off fat reserves. What I do is eat more meals a day, but in smaller portions. I also joined a gym. At the gym, I work on arms and midsection for 3 days, take a day off, and then work on legs and midsection for 3 days, take a day off, and then repeat the cycle. I work out between one and a half to two and a half hours a day. Now here are two more things that I have not done yet, but I am going to start doing Monday. Everyday, drink half a cup of vinegar. Though vinegar has little to no nutritional value, it does burn off and eat away at fat. I am also going to incorporating olive oil into one of my meals everyday. Olive oil coats your stomach and intestines so that digesting is easier on your system. And if your eating things like Special K cereal and apples, you will become more regular which in turn, will lose more weight. Good luck.

  28. QUESTION:
    Will this diet plan help me lose 5-6 kilos in a week?
    This is going to be my Diet plan:

    Breakfast(7am)= Large mug of coffee+8 peices of dark chocolates= 350cals

    Dinner(4pm)= Can of Tuna+Salad= 340cals
    Total intake= 690cals

    Exercising is the only thing im concerned about.
    I dont think ill have enough energy to excersie.

    Also i heard cans of tuna have a lot of sodium in it :s
    sooo i dont kno :s
    but im consuming so little that i dont think that extra sodium is going to hurt?

    • ANSWER:
      Losing that much weight in a week is seriously unhealthy unless you are morbidly obese. But I'm sure you are not! I would try and eat small meals constantly throughout the day this means you won't feel as hungry or tired as often

  29. QUESTION:
    How many sizes can I expect to lose within 4 to 5 months on a diet and exercise plan, if I really stick to it?
    I have been on a diet for over a year now, and have lost close to 70 pounds, and I am needing to lose at least another 45 to 50 pounds, and my weight loss is at a stand still, I have hit a major plateua, and I am exercising, but I want to reach my full potential to really be physically fit and look & feel great. I am doing an indoor walking routine 10 min, 3 times a day at least 5 days a week, and I am doing Urban Rebounding 20 minutes a day 3 days a week, plus lifting hand weights, I do a 10 minute routine with that at least 3 days a week. What more must I do to achieve my fitness goals to really get my body in tip top shape? How long will it take to reach my fitness goals if I keep working hard and dilligently at it and how many sizes can I expect to drop within 4 to 5 months? Is there any way I can acheive my goal within this time frame, I'm between a size 14 & 12 now, and would like to get to a size 8. My problem area is the lower half of my body. What kind of game plan do I need?

    • ANSWER:
      Congratulations on your 70 lb weight loss. I would recommend changing your workout to 3 days weight training and 3 days cardio training. On the days that you weight train, start out with 10 minutes of cardio just to warm your muscles up. For example on Mon, Wed, Fri do weight training and Tue, Thur, Sat do 30 minutes of cardio. Rest on Sunday. I would also recommend adding squats and lunges to your leg routine. Squats are the greatest overall work out and will take care of that lower half you're concerned about. Healthy weight loss is about 2 lbs a week which is 8 lbs a month. In 4 months thats 32 lbs. Also, don't be as concerned with weight as much as body fat percentage. Have a trained professional measure your body fat so that you'll know where you stand. Eat 5 small meals a day with plenty of protein and drink 6-8 glasses of water a day. Your body will actually hold extra water if your not drinking enough of it as a self defense against dehydration. Try to stay away from fried foods and high sugar foods and drinks. Your'e diet is 60% of the battle. Good luck.

      You don't need to lose weight, but you should always eat healthy.

  31. QUESTION:
    How can I make a successful 6 week diet plan?
    Hellooo, I am 18 years old - currently weigh around 10 stone. I have been unhappy with my body for years, and have never fully committed myself to taking control and losing weight for good! I am fed up of this and have a 4-6 week gap in my calender approaching in which I want to fully devote myself to healthy eating and excercise in order to lose at least a stone and tone up for the summer! I am going on a girls holiday at the end of june, and want to feel comfortable in a bikini! I know if i am successful i will continue to maintain a weight i am happy with, as it has been something that has always made me self conscious and shy.

    I can be a healthy eater on some days but to be perfectly honest i find great comfort and relaxation in a good old binge and usually believe food just makes bad situations turn good. It sounds stupid, because when I do eat well balanced meals and do some excercise - nothing beats that good feeling you get about yourself. I have a dog so I give him at least a 20 minute walk 3/4 times a week - but would like to increase this.

    ANYWAY...I would reallly reallllly appreciate any honest advice on how I should approach a well constructed diet plan. Even if it sounds like a challenge, I wanna give it 100% effort and enthusiasm.

    I have 2 weeks till I plan to begin this diet plan as I have exams in the next few days. So once they are finished I want to fully committ myself to this. Also, I am trying to save money for my holiday so would like to do this outside the use of a gym. I have recently purchased a smoothie maker - which i plan to use for protein shake, a mini trampoline, an ab roller and a skipping rope.

    So my brief plan:

    -eat 3 healthy meals a day:
    breakfast: activia yogurt
    lunch: soup
    snack: protein shake
    dinner: chicken/salad/low carb meal (like the ones from m&s)

    ..and throughout the day plenty of water...in amounts i would say 3 x 500ml bottles.

    Advice on this meal plan would be greatly appreciated...you might be able to tell i am no expert on nutrition or vitamins or anything really about food and the amounts needed, or what exactly is in food... all i can really add up are the calories. i think 1000 a day would be an effectivev way to weight loss? combined with excercise of course.

    Okay, so the excercise...

    everyday for 4-6 weeks (maybe one day off is good for relaxing muscles?? - but i am definitely trying to push myself)

    -an hour walk with the dog - maybe up the hills so he can run around..and i can do starjumps? some mini excercises might be usefull...
    -30minutes jumping on the mini trampoline
    -skipping rope for 5 minutes or for a certain number of jumps?
    -200 sit ups a day...or even more...?
    -i have a workout dvd, which i could throw in?

    i know this may seem extravagant but i literally have no plans at all for this time period and so want to focus all my energy in excercise and healthy eating - obviously with breaks - and i think if i make this really intense i can enjoy the results after and relax a bit then keep up regular excercise more like 3-4 times a week than daily. and hopefully this will mean i can lose a nice amount of weight - a high aim would be up to 2 stone, but if thats possible in the time frame i would love to try it. and a flat stomach is also desired.

    I know this is a lot to process, but i would seriously appreciate ANY comments/adjustments/suggestions made to this very rough diet plan. i need too do this.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this..

    Anna.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Anna,
      your diet sounds good, but in order to get the maximum results, you must eat 6 small meals a day. I know you've probably heard that alot, but it is SOO true. If you want to increase your metabolism (which in turn will burn TONS of fat, even when your sleep), you must do that, but they must be healthy at the same time. The key is to eat every 2 to 4 hours to get the full-effect of increasing your metabolism.
      I'm going to give you a list of fatty foods that you should avoid eating while you are going thru you six week program:
      - Fried Foods
      - Butter, margarine, oil, lard (except canola oil or olive oil in small quantities)
      - Doughnuts or croissants
      - Chocolate candy
      - Peanut butter, mayonnaise, fat-containing salad dressings
      - Avocadoes or olives
      - nuts or seeds (while they are very healthy, they contain A LOT of fat, believe it or not)
      - full-fat ice cream
      - sour dream or cream cheese
      - cookies or cake
      - dairy products with more than 2 percent fat
      - pork, veal, bacon
      - skin on poultry

      there is a good list and you can modify your diet accordingly, but here is what your diet should be based off of:
      1. Fifteen to twenty-five grams of fat per day
      2. Five to seven portions of limited complex carbohydrates (includes breads, cereals, grains, starchy vegetables like potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, beets, peas)
      3. Two or three fruits a day
      4. Two or three portions of protein a day
      5. At least six servings of unlimited complex carbs (which is basically all vegetables except potatoes and other high-starch vegetables)
      6. Two or three servings of dairy a day
      7. 8 to 12 cups of water a day (cut out coffee, soda, alcohol...basically ANYTHING THATS NOT WATER)
      8. Never go more than 4 hours without eating
      9. take a multi-vitamin to get the essential nutrients, that you may not get in your diet

      I also suggest purchasing a food scale so that you can get the serving size ounces for your food. You can get them anywhere such as Walmart.

      As for your exercise, it seems like you have the cardio thing down, but you may want to start focusing on strength training which is a ESSENTIAL element of losing weight. Most people think that if a woman lifts weights, they will bulk up like body builders, but this is PHYSICALLY impossible. The women who do that, take testosterone and steroids. So please dont be afraid to pick up some dumbells. As you include weight lifting into your daily exercise, remember to focus on the main body-parts: the chest, shoulders, biceps, triceps, back, thighs, hips/butt, abs and calves. To find these workouts, I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND BUYING THE BOOK: TONING FOR TEENS BY JOYCE VEDRAL....The workouts in the book are not just for teens, matter of fact, they are for EVERYONE! Please look into buying this book. It has some really inciteful information. Also when working out, you must give each muscle group 48 hours to rest, here is a good schedule to adhere to if you really wanna push yourself, but still play it safe:

      Monday - 20-30 mins Upper body toning (weightlifting), 30 mins Cardio
      Tuesday - 20-30 mins Lower body toning, 30 mins cardio
      Wednesday - 20-30 mins Upper body toning, 30 mins cardio
      Thursday - 20-30 mins Lower body toning, 30 mins cardio
      Friday - 20-30 mins Upper body toning, 30 mins cardio
      Saturday - 20-30 mins Lower body toning, 30 mins cardio
      Sunday - REST (this is VERY important that you give yourself to rest to see maximum results)

      I suggest working out in the mornings, because it it proven tht people who do, end up being more consistent and you dont have to worry about your busy schedule in the afternoon. And if you do exercise in the morning, make sure you eat something light before you exercise so you dont get light-headed. I reccommend a banana or something.

      Most people think that they can spot-reduce (which means to work out only a single part of the body so that it will get more defined and slimmer), but in truth, (especially since you want flat abs), you must work out YOUR ENTIRE BODY, which means combining strength training and cardio!

      Good luck with your plans and I hope you can make it too your goals, you can do anything ;)

      You don't need to lose any weight.

      The exercising will help your physical fitness though. Two cups of cereal is 2 servings, I would stick with one cup. The special K diet is completely ridiculous. And that isn't enough food at dinner.

      I really don't think drinking all that coconut oil is going to do a darn thing for you except provide extra fat and calories.

      This is all fad stuff. As a growing child you need to just eat healthy portions of protein (which this diet doesn't provide nearly enough), complex whole grain carbs and a good amount of fruits and veggies.

      Add 1,200 plus 3,500 (equals one pound of fat) ...and that is the total amount of calories you need to burn each day. Its actually really easy once you start watching the numbers and it doesn't seem like work or exercise. Its just a matter of changing the way you think about loosing weight.

      I use this method when i gain some pounds. The first time I did this I went from 168 to 127

      2) Most people do not get enough water in their system. Water is your body's principal chemical component, comprising, on average, 60 percent of your weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.

      Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. To determine if you are getting enough water use this simple formula.. Take your weight, for example 150 pounds and divide by 2. Take your answer which is 75 lbs and change it to ounces, in this case 75 ounces. That is how many ounces of water you need a day. Your body performs mostly on water. If you make sure you get enough water everyday your body will perform at top notch and your body will no longer have the cravings of junk food. You will have a better performing body system to help you work out and feel better thru out your day.

  35. QUESTION:
    Can you please give me a strict diet plan to lose 5 pounds in 2 weeks?
    I'm on a time crunch.

    • ANSWER:
      Man, you can lose 5 pounds in a week if you've got the willpower. Just drink a V8, or have a Slim Fast, and eat a salad or couple pieces of toast twice a day and don't eat anything else.

      Of course, losing that weight is less genuine; you're just losing some water weight and muscle tissue. But if you have to lose that imperceptible 5 lbs in two weeks, then I guess that's the way to do it.

      I mean, heck, you could try limiting your caloric intake by 500 from what it is currently and exercising for 20 minutes every day. Who knows? That might make you lose the weight too and you'll get healthier in the process. *gasp!*

      Good luck.

  37. QUESTION:
    What is a good diet plan to loose weight whilst going to the gym 4/5 times a week and tone muscles?
    so im 24 years old, male, 12.5 stone, little overwieght I want to shift a bit of fat and build some muscles. I just joined the gym and am really enjoying it, i do 1hr of CV, then a few weights (im not too into the weights) and do 30mins bout 35 lengths in the pool a couple times a week. I am useless at food and cooking tho and really need some advice on good things to eat and how much!! and whats with these protein shakes everyone drinks at the gym!?!?

    • ANSWER:
      Try a low carb diet plan. If you can't cook, eat canned tuna/chicken. Stay away from starches such as potatoes, pasta, white bread. Once you eat low carb, you must monitor your carbohydrates however. Consider some strength training it develps muscle.

  38. QUESTION:
    Can someone help me come up with a 14 week diet plan?
    im 18 and am going on holiday with friends in 14 weeks.
    im currently about 5ft 5 and 147lb and i really don't feel comfortable with my body. i dont want this to ruin my holiday.
    could someoe help me come up with a plan that combines healthy eating regime (but doesnt completely cut out choc as i dont think id be able to cope) and exercise. preferably one that gives results pretty quickly so it will keep me motivated
    thankss:)

    • ANSWER:
      Low carb diets are meant to work.
      One thing that I did try that I absolutely swear by is a juice fast. Basically you don't eat anything for however long you do it for (I was on it for 28 days). You just drink fruit and vegetable juices. Not from the supermarket...you have to juice fresh veg and fruit. And you can drink as much as you want.

      Pros: You lose weight pretty fast-this really helped motivate me to continue. My skin was glowing, everyone noticed. It cleans out your system. My sleep got so much better, I slept 3 extra hours when I was on it. I was also feeling very confident. Your metabolism slows down so you don't feel that hungry - however when you get off the diet you have to make sure to eat light because your metabolism has slowed down.

      Cons- well you cant eat. You sense of smell gets pretty strong and you crave EVERYTHING. I was cold a lot of the time because there was no food in me. I was a bit cranky. Low energy levels.

      Well thats about it really. If you are interested just google it. It did work for me. But the day I got off it...i ate like a maniac. You have to make sure not to do that. Only salads and fruit! I hope that helps.

      Good luck!

  41. QUESTION:
    Jogging/running 5 miles a day: How many lbs a week?
    If I run 5 miles a day for around 5-7 days a week with a diet plan that is nearly completely organic, and full of fiber, how much can I lose a week? for a 5'7 person that is 150-160 lbs.

    • ANSWER:
      Calories in versus calories out. Determine how many calories you are taking in and gauge your exercise routine from there. 500-1000 calories under maintenance a day is a good place to be, and will drop a pound or two off per week. Do an internet search for "calorie maintenance calculator", there a bunch to choose from. You may lose more in the beginning due to the loss of excess water weight as well if you are just starting exercising regularly. It is a good idea to keep weight loss at a slow steady pace rather than going all out and losing it all at once. You risk "rebounding", which is essentially your body slamming the brake pedal on your metabolism, causing the same amount of food you were eating before to lose weight to make you gain weight.

    • ANSWER:
      Eat only when hungry and not more than thrice a day. Include plenty of uncooked vegetables and fruits in each meal, preferably 50%. To have more satisfaction out of ur food, Chew each morsel at least 32 times. This will also activate ur body to generate signals of hunger/fullness. Obey these signals.

      Nothing other than water in between.

      Take light exercises and brisk walks for 30 min.regularly preferably twice a day.

      U will achieve what u have not even dreamt and that too in a reasonable time and hassle free.

      Be patient and not in a hurry.

      U cannot choose spots for reduction.

      This schedule can be adopted on permanent basis to lead a healthy life and maintain weight.

    • ANSWER:
      I was a personal trainer for several years. I have taken many classes in college and several certifications from ACSM. Follow these guidelines:
      This is all depending how much time you have on your hands.

      M-- Legs, shoulders, traps
      T-- Rest
      W-- Back, Bi’s
      R-- Rest
      F-- Chest, Tri’s
      S-- Rest
      SUN.—Rest

      Foods:

      Fish, chicken, spaghetti, stews (thick and hearty), bread rolls, egg whites, wheat toast with jelly, oatmeal, Bananas!!!(takes the cramps away after workouts), Salads, fruits.

      The main thing here is quantity. Start off with 3 or 4 huge meals. All the breakfast stuff above should be one meal (work up to it). Cardio can be done with 20 minute sessions, but don’t over do it cause u wanna build muscle. This cardio should be done so the mass amount of food and weight gain won’t strain your heart.

      Weight training:

      Heavy weight—10 to 12 reps 4 sets (anything lower than 10-12 will increase strength only and not your size. Use a little lighter weights to start out so you don’t hurt yourself. Work on your form first, use a site for this or I can send you more info. later. Even on your off days, eat a lot of tuna. ALWAYS EVERYDAY drink a lot of water. The high amount of protein has to get flushed out or it will cause kidney problems. When weight training you should not be able to get the last one or two reps of your final set. That’s when you know you did it right. Anymore ?’s, hit me up.

  47. QUESTION:
    diet plan... is this okay to do if you are working out 5-6 times a week?
    During the first seven days you must abstain from all alcohol
    You must drink 10 glasses of water each day
    Day One All fruits except bananas. Your first day will consist of all the fruits you want. It is strongly suggested that you consume lots of melons the first day. Especially watermelon and a loupe. If you limit your fruit consumption to melons, your chances of losing three lbs. on first day are very good.
    Day Two All vegetables. You are encouraged to eat until you are stuffed with all the raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the amount or type. For your complex carbohydrate, you will start day two with a large baked potato for dinner. You may top the potato with one pat of butter.
    Day Three A mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice. Any amount, any quantity. No bananas yet. No potatoes today.
    Day Four Bananas and milk. Today you will eat as many as eight bananas and drink three glasses of milk. This will be combined with the special soup which may be eaten in limited quantities.
    Day Five Today is feast day. You will eat beef and tomatoes. Eat two 10 oz. portions of lean beef. Hamburger is OK. Combine this with six whole tomatoes. On day five you must increase your water intake by one quart. This is to cleanse your system of the uric acid you will be producing.
    Day Six Beef and vegetables. Today you may eat an unlimited amount of beef and vegetables. Eat to your hearts content.
    Day Seven Today your food intake will consist of brown rice, fruit juices and all the vegetables you care to consume.
    Tomorrow morning you will be 10-17 lbs. lighter than one week ago.

    • ANSWER:
      this is not a "diet plan". I would not recommend this to anyone, and if done for more then a week would be extremely unhealthy. So no, this is not OK...no matter if you are working out 5-6 days a week or not.

    What are the basics for starting the 5 factor diet eating plan?
    im currently waiting for my book to get here but until then id like to start eating as described in the 5 factor diet book. can anyone tell me how to go about doing so?

    • ANSWER:
      "The key principle of the 5-Factor Diet is to eat five meal each day that must be made up of five components: a lean protein, a complex carbohydrate, fiber, a "good" fat, and a sugar-free drink. The food choices Pasternak recommends are based on the Glycemic Index (GI), which rates foods according to their effect on blood sugar levels. An example of a 5-Factor meal would be baked chicken, mixed vegetables with a drizzle of olive oil, a half cup of lentils, and a glass of sparkling water."

    • ANSWER:
      Hey there! diet and nutrition are going to be quite huge for you, if you don't have a ton of time for the gym/working out. Although, allowing adequate time for both would be super ideal.

      I think the best way to shave off body-fat is intervals. You can learn about them here: http://www.swolefitness.com/fitness-articles/losing-weight/get-shredded-with-interval-cardio-training/

      You could also check out jump roping. It's also a super solid, and fun way to crank up the intensity, and lose weight. There's an article about it here: http://www.swolefitness.com/fitness-articles/losing-weight/cardio-jump-roping-for-woman/

      Anyways, with a little persistence, you'll go so far! Just stay consistent and keep with it! Best of luck!

  5. QUESTION:
    Has Anyone Done Zumba and The Zumba Diet?
    So I just got the Zumba book with the 5 day diet plan and the DVD plus I will be starting Zumba classes in couple weeks and I am just wondering if anyone else has done this and if they were successful at it? What was the hardest part? Basically your personal experience with it.

    • ANSWER:
      I absolutely LOVE Zumba! I've been doing it for quite some time now and I'm addicted! I had already lost a bunch of weight before starting zumba by just eating healthy, so it really helped me to tone up and loose a lot of inches after that. The trick with zumba is finding the right instructor. There are many different ones out there and many of them have their own routines. Finding one that's fun and challenging is the hard part. I say that because I've talked to a few people that tried it and didn't like it because it was either too hard or not hard enough for them, or just plain boring. As far as the diet plan... you gotta remember the 80/20 rule... 80% diet 20% exercise. You MUST have a healthy diet if you want to loose weight. Exercise alone is not enough. Have fun doing Zumba! I know you're going to love it!

  6. QUESTION:
    Is This A Healthy Diet Plan? How Much Weight Will i Lose?
    okay so right now i'm 16 years old, about 5'2'' (done growing, haven't grown since about 7th grade) and 145 pounds. my bmi is 26.5, which is considered overweight. i'd like to get down to around 115-120 pounds, so my bmi would be in the healthy range. i was just wondering if this diet would be healthy...it all fits into the South Beach Diet Phase 1, but i'm a vegan, so i didnt know if it would still be healthy...

    breakfast: smoothie made of: 1/5 container silken tofu, 1 Cup unsweetened soymilk, 2 Tbsp hershey's unsweetened coco powder, 3 Tbsp flax seeds, vanilla extract and Splenda to taste

    snack: 15 almonds

    lunch: salad made of: spinach, romaine, cucumber, red bell pepper, 1/2 Cup chick peas, 1 tsp olive oil and red wine vinegar. and soup made of: 1 Cup vegetable broth, 1/4 Cup textured vegetable protein, and 1 stalk celery

    snack: 1/2 Cup broccoli, 1/4 Cup red bell pepper, 1 stalk celery with 2 Tbsp classic hummus. and 1 1/2 Tbsp (1/2 serving) soy protein mixed in 8 oz water

    dinner: 1/2 Cup Boca meatless "ground beef", 1/2 Cup black beans, 1/4 Cup diced tomatoes and chiles, 1 1/2 Cups spinach

    dessert: 1 sugar-free popsicle

    so that all adds up to:
    *around 1200 calories
    *44g fat
    *16g sugar
    *64g fiber
    *90g protein

    and i'll be taking a multivitamin and b12 supplement each morning. and drinking at least 64 oz ice water every day.

    i'll also be working out every day, doing about 45 minutes of intense cardio and taking a 2-3 mile walk at a normal pace. i'll also add in some weight training with a bowflex and free weights.

    so is that a healthy diet plan? will i still lose 14 pounds in 2 weeks like the South Beach Diet book says? oh, and if anyone has some good toning exercises for abs/butt/thighs...that would be appreciated!!

    thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      I think you'll starve if you eat only that. Don't be afraid to eat more, it is the quality of what you eat not the calories or the quantity that counts. 100 calories from a tomato and 100 calories from a hamburger are very different type of calories for example. 100 calories from a tomato cannot make you fat, but a hamburger will. Don't rely on the calorie number, it does not represent things accurately.

      "breakfast: smoothie made of: 1/5 container silken tofu, 1 Cup unsweetened soymilk, 2 Tbsp hershey's unsweetened coco powder, 3 Tbsp flax seeds, vanilla extract and Splenda to taste"

      This is all good except the splenda. Never use splenda to sweeten, it's bad for health. The body cannot digest sucralose because it's 100% chemical and man-made, the body transforms into fat everything it cannot digest. Sucalose has also been known to attack the brain. Use natural honey, natural maple syrup or stevia. They all taste sugary but are not harmful to health and don't cause weight gain.

      "snack: 15 almonds"
      This is good, but I suggest eating 30 of them.

      "lunch: salad made of: spinach, romaine, cucumber, red bell pepper, 1/2 Cup chick peas, 1 tsp olive oil and red wine vinegar. and soup made of: 1 Cup vegetable broth, 1/4 Cup textured vegetable protein, and 1 stalk celery"
      Make the 1/2 cup chick peas into 1 cup, and add some quinoa.

      "snack: 1/2 Cup broccoli, 1/4 Cup red bell pepper, 1 stalk celery with 2 Tbsp classic hummus. and 1 1/2 Tbsp (1/2 serving) soy protein mixed in 8 oz water"
      Good

      "dinner: 1/2 Cup Boca meatless "ground beef", 1/2 Cup black beans, 1/4 Cup diced tomatoes and chiles, 1 1/2 Cups spinach"
      Make 2/3 and 2/3 cups (boca, black beans), add much more vegetables.

      "dessert: 1 sugar-free popsicle "
      Sugar-free means it either has aspartame, which is dangerous, or sucralose which is not good. You should try making your own popsicles using what I said earlier, honey, etc.

      It would also be a good idea to drink your water with organic tea or herbal tea. It's a good way to get additional nutrition for little effort.

  8. QUESTION:
    Can anyone give me a specific diet plan to lose weight fast?
    I am getting married in July and I am getting my dress fitted in June...so I need to get moving, and fast! I need help with a diet plan, because all of my magazines and books are not helping and I don't have the money for a trainer!
    What should I eat for breakfast/lunch/dinner/snacks and what should I definitely cut out!?
    I am 5'7 155 pounds, and want to lose 15 pounds soon! THANKS!!!

    • ANSWER:
      There is never a "quick fix" to diets. But you can most likely cut out the pasta, breads and starchy things because they all turn into monosacrides (sp) in your body. Pretty much it turns into sugar in your body and it makes you gain weight.

      Personally, I would eat fruit for breakfast..maybe like a grape fruit or oranges? Drink water and 2% milk. Lunches? Maybe some tuna? Dinner? Some type of lean meat and a salad. Snacks? You don't want to starve yourself so i would buy those snack bags with the 100 calories. (100 calorie packs)

      I hope that helps out a bit, but please, don't go too extreme.

  10. QUESTION:
    help with the math: a diet plan that claims you can lose 7 pounds in 5 days?
    My mother claims there was a nutritionist today on the Rachel Ray show promoting a book that would allow you to lose 7 pounds during the initial 5 day cleansing phase of her program. When she told me about it, I pointed out that the math just does not add up. Since 1 pound is roughly equal to 3500 calories, you would have to burn off roughly 4900 calories a day in excess to your caloric intake to lose 7 pounds in 5 days. Wouldn't this be virtuously impossible?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, most likely the diet is carb restricted and very low calorie diet with a light laxitive. Most fad / crash diets work on this principal. They tell you their silly concoction is the reason when it is actually the VLCD / restrictions. In other words, the food restrictions alone recommeneded alone will cause 100% of the weight loss.

      If you mom was sedentary and overweight (say 200 lbs) her BMR would be about 1500 calories and she would burn about 750 a day doing normal activity.
      If you mother was to eat 1000 calories a day. She would have a deficit of about 1250 a day. Over 7 days this would equate to about 3 pounds (of which about 25% would be lean mass).

      2.3 Lbs of fat lost.
      .6 Lbs of lean muscle lost
      1 Lb fecal matter lost (low intake means low volumn inside).
      3 lbs water lost.

      Seven lbs isn't unusual for a week crash diet.

  11. QUESTION:
    Is this a good diet plan for me?
    At age 19, I'm 5 ft 5 and 145 lbs. I would ultimately like to lose 20 lbs, but right now I'm concentrating on dieting until easter. I will continue with healthier eating habits and more physical activity after easter (for the most part, I just won't track it as much).

    My plan is to do one or two ten minute tone-ups every day, and limit my food intake to under 1300 calories when possible. Because I'm required to eat with my family for dinner, I don't have too much control over that meal, so breakfast and lunch is extremely light.

    I'm going to eat 200 or less calories for breakfast, which is usually a bowl of special k with soy milk ,or toast and grits, or yogurt and a special k bar.

    On Tuesdays and Thursdays I have back to back classes and can't eat anything for about six hours, so I just eat another 100 calorie snack in the form of a serving of broth based soup or yogurt or a 100 cal pack or fruit cup.

    The other days of the week, I eat a 100 calorie snack every two to three hours until dinner, which is whatever is available and even then I avoid fried foods, skip on butter and go for fat-free or light dressings.

    Additionally, on days I have class I have to lug my book bag (with three rather large textbooks, three notebooks and a heavy purse) across the campus to make it to class, and then for another three or four blocks to get home.

    Right now I wear a size 7 in jeans. A size 5 without stretch hardly even buttons on me, and there's an extremely unattractive roll. Is it likely I'll be able to fit comfortably into at least a size 5 by easter while following this diet plan?

    • ANSWER:
      yes

    Does this diet plan work? I'm 17 and wanna lose weight FAST!?
    I read this book, Beauty Secrets for teens(for got the name) It has diet plans and celebrity secrets and how to get a boyfriend. And i looked at this diet plan. You can lose weight without excercising(which is so much better) and theres stories about girls who lost 40 pounds in 2 weeks. and i saw pics of girls who have a body of a goddess. And Boys with big muscles and six pack. The diet plan goes like this.

    7:00am- Breakfast time. Eat Grapes, apple slices or one banana.
    2:00pm- Eat potato chips, grapes.
    9:00pm- Eat more dinner.

    BEST diet & exercise plan ????

    I am 5 feet 2 inches tall.
    And I weigh 160/165 pounds.
    It is very unhealthy, I know.
    And I'm really trying to get healthier.
    I kindof wanted to lose around 30-35 pounds or more if possible. ( @ least 20.)
    (:
    I have around 12/13 weeks to do this. (a little less than 3 months.)
    Could you please give me a detailed, safe diet and exercise plan that isn't too hard to follow?
    thank you all so much for your time and effort.
    I truely do apperciate it!!♥

    -links are welcome.

    -Don't have much time for breakfast, any ideas?
    -Don't have much excercise equipment.
    -Can only go to a gym with a parent, my mom isn't very supportive. She is always buying junk food.
    -What to eat while hanging out with my friends??

    Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    :)

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there! I suggest starting by cutting out junk food, things like; chips, candy, SODA, anything deep fried (french fries etc), and anything that comes from a box (Like hamburger helper, rice-a-roni, pasta-roni etc)...
      For lunchs instead of making a turkey sandwich make a turkey wrap with a low-carb/low-calorie wrap, they are more than 1/2 the calories of a regular tortilla and much healthier for you. Put in lettuce, onions, pickles, tomato, mushrooms, turkey or chicken etc, things you would normally use on a sandwich. Use mustard for dressing.
      Also, lunch idea, grilled chicken (maybe dinner leftovers) with veggies, or a turkey burger is a great option! You can buy a whole wheat pita pocker and make a pita pizza. Here are a bunch of recipe's you can get idea's from lunches/breakfasts/and snacks. Most are easy to make and require pretty normal ingredients.
      http://www.myeatingdisorder.com/myeatingdisorder/recipe.asp
      Snacks; sugar free jello or sugar free pudding, raw nuts, yogurt, fruit, raw veggies, hard boiled eggs...

      Exercise; go for a 20 minute jog every day after school. Are you involved in any sports? Join a sport, track team or something to help you be active. You will be surprised what 20 minutes of jogging will do for you...

      Good luck to you, hope I helped you some!!!

  19. QUESTION:
    What sort of structured diet might work for me?
    Here are some facts about myself:
    .5'7-233lbs, 23 year old Native American female
    . Ovo-lacto vegetarian (I eat eggs & Milk.)
    .I carry a lot of my weight in the stomach and bum.
    .No outstanding health issues, except periodic vertigo.
    .Family history of Diabetes.

    I believe I might have an abnormal sensitivity to sugars and carbohydrates--if I eat even a little I tend to crave more food. Low carb diets do interest me, however I'm vegetarian and had problems even with 'South Beach.'

    My goal is to begin diet/exercise in June, losing about 2lbs per week. Goal weight 170 by January 2008.

    What diet plan might work best for me? Any book or website resources very appreciated.

    Thank you :)

    • ANSWER:
      Well, for me... DIETS DON'T WORK
      What does... is common sense. When finally you reach a point when you are sufficiently disgusted with yourself... I mean really disgusted...if you aren't, it won't work, then you can start to make a life change. Its not a diet. You have to change the way you live your life.
      1. Never give up. Never give up. Never give up. If you fail... its just a new starting point.
      2. Shut your mouth. You don't need to eat all that crap. And its craps isn't it? ISN'T IT? Get real. All your life you've heard what is normal... eat right, All the facts are right in front of you. Pay attention. Serving sizes DO matter.
      3. Get off your butt. You must exercise. Bottom line... you must burn more calories than you take in. Period.

      It worked for me. See that my pic over there? Thats my "I lost 80 pounds" grin. Its simple...1, 2, 3.
      This is my mantra... repeat it over and over as needed:
      Never give up.
      Shut your mouth.
      Get off butt.
      Good luck!

  20. QUESTION:
    What would be a good diet plan with this food in my house?
    I'm 16 years old, 5'4, and 183. I need to lose a lot of weight. i want to lose at least 45 pounds asap. i can't do my own shopping so I'll have to make do with what i have in the house. I get my water from a well so I can drink as much water as i want. can somebody help me set up a good diet plan with these foods?

    -Many 80 calorie yogurts
    -granola bars
    -bread (white. my mom sometimes buys wheat)
    -raisin bran
    -honey buns
    -buddy bars
    -Swiss rolls
    -cocoa puffs
    -2% milk
    -eggs
    -apple sauce
    -cheese stick
    -fruit punch

    and that's basically it, whatever is in the house kinda varies, depending on what my mom decides to buy.

    For exercise I take a mile walk at least twice a week and my bus stop is a quarter mile away from my house so I usually have to walk that twice a day with a bag with 3 text books and a bunch of notebooks. (Our future consists of many hunchbacks) I might try to take more walks and i might use the money I've been saving up for a car to get a wii fit (the car i have now might get fixed anyway. still need to get a license)

    So, can i get some help here please? I really want to lose weight!!
    thanks forthe answers so far.

    but i dont have a credit card and im only 16 so i cant try the acai berry thing and i dont wanna try it so dont spam my question people. those ads r kind or annoying me.

    and my mom doesnt let me help shop. i dont get to shop with her, she usually does her shopping while im in school and i live in the middle of nowhere so she only goes shopping like once a week. she'll buy fruits everyonce in a while if i bug her enough then she'll stop buying it.any time i ask her to buy healthier food, thats wat happens.and i cant do a weeks worth of shopping with a week anyway.

    look,its a difficult situation and theres more to it, bottom line-what my mom buys i have to frickin deal with it. i dont have too much of a say, they think if im gonna lose weight its gonna be from not eating alot or that im not gonna lose weight.

    thanks anyway, i do appreciate it

    • ANSWER:
      Just because those are the only foods in your house doesn't mean you can't go with your mom to the store orake a list. Ask for a ton of the 100calorie packs an for the bread you can buy natures own bread it's only 45 calories a slice. And the applesause is probably only 60 to 80 calories. The yogart is fine, but you can also buy jello mouse pudding, it ONLY has 2 carbs!!!! And it's amazing. Ask for cheerios don't wet the coco puffs. Eggs are fine and don't worry about milk it's fine. Yo can also buy v8 juice it's ONLY 8 calories!!! It comes in fruit punch flavor, don't drink any other sugary fruit punch. Granola bars and rasin brand are
      fine but don't eat honey buns or Swiss rolls. when you go out eat grilled food and vegetables. Do buy fried chicken. And take your own lunch instead of a school lunch.

      Walking home from the bus stop doesn't count that much try riding ur bike fo 20 minutes a day and you can always do crunches or sit ups. Don't use your money for a wii fit you won't do it as much as you think trust me, and it won't help you losse the weight.

    Im starting the gym Friday and would like to start a diet also. i have googled alot of them and bought books about eat clean diets. but most of them have foods that I have not heard of or foods that would take a while to prepare.

    What other tips you got?

    • ANSWER:
      Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, brisk walking and power walking all help with weight loss but dieting helps more.

      One of the healthiest weight loss diets is the DASH diet.

      The DASH Diet can help you lose weight sensibly, lower your cholesterol, eat healthier and lower your blood pressure by using the dash diet daily.

      It is based on an eating plan rich in fruits and vegetables, and low-fat or non-fat dairy, with whole grains. It is a high fiber, low to moderate fat diet, and is rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

      You can see further details in a web search for "dash diet" + "lose weight".

  23. QUESTION:
    What are some great diets tips/tricks that most people don't know?
    Everyone knows: eat whole wheats, keep a diet book, plan your meals, eat small portions, drink water, eat fruits and veggies, count calories (maybe), know your bmi, eat breakfast, don't eat right before bed, have a balanced diet, run/walk 5-6 times a week, etc.

    Well some people already DO all this stuff- and are not losing weight! What are some good tips and tricks for the people who follow all the rules yet are not seeing the desired results? (Especially when you are not trying to lose an EXTREME amount of weight- just 6-10 pounds to get rid of that extra flab).

    • ANSWER:
      - Eat breakfast - this kicks your metabolism into high gear for the day.

      - Take a chromium supplement - about 400mcg per day - again, helps you metabolize carbs and fats

      - Eat a tsp of cinnamon a day (I stir mine in my morning coffee) - again, boosts metabolisim

      - Eat hot, spricy food such as chilis. Recent studies have shwn that you can burn calories 15% faster immediatly after eating them.

      - Watch your sugar intake. How much sugar did you stir in your coffee, or sprinkle on your cereal? How much syrup did you just smother your pancakes in?

      - Don't be fooled by JUICE. Many people think it is a healthy choice, but it has just as much sugar and calories as soda. Yes, it has NATURAL sugars, but sugar is still sugar. The unsweetened OJ in my fridge right now is 120 calories for a 1/4 cup. So, if I have a normal 16oz glass with breakfast, that is a whopping 960 calories (half my recomended daily intake)!!! Drink water or skim milk (90 calories per cup) instead, and eat whole fruits, which your body can use more effectively, instead of juice.

  24. QUESTION:
    is this an ok diet plan?
    ok here is how my day goes...i wake up at 6 am and get ready for work and im out of the house by 7 am so no breakfast for me...i eat lunch around 12 pm i usually have a turkey sandmich on wheat bread an apple or an orange and water.....and for dinner i usually eat a salad or something small...i work from 7am until 8 pm, monday thru friday....i work out doing cardio for about an hour after work...im 27 about 5'7 and 235 pounds..should i eat less or does anyone have any advise on how i can lose it faster or what more i can do? and please no links on a book to buy or anything just some free friendly advice thanks

    • ANSWER:
      breakfast is mandatory - jumpstarts your metabilsm.
      you need much more calories than that and eat regulary so your body doesnt store any calories for later (fat reserves)
      find calorie/fitness calculator on the net, enter all your stats and it will tell you how many calories you need a day to maintain, take off 300-400cal off that number and thats how much you need to lose.
      dont try to lose more than 1-2lbs a week - its not healthy to lose more.

    Well, I really can run 4 miles, but its hard because I loose focus and interest. I ran 4 when I was reading an amazing book and forgot i was running. But would it be bad to run about 2 miles or 3 miles. Is it going to make more of a difference if I run 2 miles over 4?

    So either 2.5 miles and DDR
    or 4 miles
    or 2 miles and basketball
    or jazz/tap dance

    Will I loose weight this way? I weigh 123.5 pounds, which is horrid i know, and i'm only 5'1 and 13. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      dude relax, do regular exercise but dont overexert urself. You're not fat, so if you exercise you should just work on toning. So don't destroy yourself over this. Anyways, just exercise however until you feel tired. Then go 10-20 minutes more, depending on the exercise and how vigorous the activity is. Eat healthy foods so you can eat more to energize yourself.

  27. QUESTION:
    What is a good diet and workout plan for me?
    I need help looking for a right diet and workout plan for my body. I am 5'1 and weigh 170lbs. I am sort of an apple shape, but not exactly. I have huge shoulders, they are wide and thick. My thighs are as well. People say I do not look like I weigh what I weigh. I want to decrease the amount of my shoulders, and get my legs more slimmer. Then, I would like to lose my stomach "love-handles". I have gone on many sites, books ext. None of them give me a good work out plan. So please if any one knows any good work out plans please answer.

    • ANSWER:
      A good Diet plan consists of Healthy and all around balanced meals. Staying away from Sugar, Starchy, and Fatty foods is a progression. Eliminate all your Soda Drinking, if you even drink Soda, Diet Soda included, and replace it with plain old H2O. Drink at least 1 Liter of Water per day. Believe it or not, Water greatly helps with Weight Loss if you drink enough. Fruits, Veggies, and lean Protein are the foods you want to consume.

      Fish, Nuts, Skinless Chicken, a Salad, Peanut Butter, and even Eggs are good food choices. Plan your meals a few hours a part. Your daily meal schedule should look like: Breakfast, Snack, Lunch, Snack, Dinner. That is just an example though, customize your eating routine how you want it. Make sure your snacks are healthy. A German Chocolate Cake and a Large Coke is not a healthy snack. Go with Fruits or Veggies instead. Like I said before, Nuts are good too -- a handful of Almonds are excellent.

      When it comes to your Workout plan, you need to start off slow and build yourself up. When I was 315lbs, I started to Speed-walking (Walk at an increased rate) for 30 minutes 7 days a week. When I started to notice Weight loss from general Speed-walking, I stepped up the difficulty to Speed-walking up Mountains to burn extra calories. For you, I recommend that you pick an activity that you enjoy doing to lose Weight. You want to get your legs slimmer? Walking up steep mountains, hills, or even small inclines can definitely help with that. Bicycling, Swimming, Jumping Jacks, etc. are fantastic exercises.

      You should also make some time to do some Calisthenic exercises. These exercises are; Push-ups, Sit-ups, Crunches, Pull-ups, yada yada. Try and do as many of these exercises you can do each day. Push-ups will help define your shoulders, and Crunches will help with your stomach. Pull-ups work your Arms, Chest, and many other areas. Mountain Climbers, Burpees, Jumping Jacks, Lunges, Squats, the list goes on to how many additional exercises you can do

      Lets review:

      1. Do at least 30 minutes of Cardio per day. Whatever gets your heart going. Swimming, Cycling, Running, Hopping, you get it. Try to do Cardio at least 5 days a week. Take the weekends off to rest.

      2. Do your Calisthenic exercises to tone your shoulders, legs, and stomach, the areas you complained about. Push-ups, Sit-ups, Pull-ups, Mountain Climbers, Lunges, Squats, you get the idea. As many of these you can do. www.youtube.com has examples of what a Mountain Climber, Burpee, and a Lunge is if you dont know.

      3. Make sure your meals are healthy. Breakfast, Snack, Lunch, Snack, Dinner. You dont have to follow this pattern, you can make up your own, but just keep it consistant. Make sure you are drinking your H2O everyday. Water helps that Weight come off.

      4. Customize your workout plan with all the exercises I mentioned to the way you want it. If you put in the time and follow a routine, you will eventually see results. If you come to a point in your Weight Loss adventure and you all of a sudden feel like you are not seeing any results, that is when you need to INCREASE the difficulty of your workouts.

      Good luck. Keep your head up and think positively.

  28. QUESTION:
    Is this a good diet plan?
    7 min in total of running 30 min total in walking. 5 glasses of water in total.
    10 blueberries 7 almonds 2 strawberries 1 banana a slice of turkey and wheat bread and 1 booked egg

    • ANSWER:
      What you're doing so far sounds really good! But if you feel like you need a little more of a push, try this out:

      Goal: Aim to lose 1 - 2 pounds a week. If you try to lose more than two pounds, you may be losing weight too fast, which commonly leads to gaining back all the weight that was lost, plus more.

      Exercise: If you have access to a gym, try out the elliptical machine and/or treadmill. If you are able to, run or jog a mile each day for about 3 to 5 days a week. If a mile is a bit too much, start out with half a mile, or even less; whatever you feel comfortable with! Gradually increase your distance (and your speed if you prefer). However, if you don't have access to a gym, try running around your block. The best time to exercise is within an hour of waking up in the morning. The reason? You burn more calories after a workout than if you had just been sitting on a couch; so exercising in the morning will allow you to burn more calories throughout the day, even long after you're done with your workout! Make sure not to hit the snooze button on your alarm clock too many times!

      Diet: Eat 5 to 6 small meals a day: breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, and if you need to eat more, have an evening snack. PORTION CONTROL IS KEY. If you are able to, prepare each meal ahead of time so that when it comes to eating a meal, you don't overdo it. Try eating somewhere away from the kitchen so you're less likely to go back for seconds or thirds. Eat your last meal/snack no later than 6:30 - 7:00 p.m., and try not to eat anything for the rest of the night, or at least don't eat anything 3 hours prior to going to bed. Only drink water as your main beverage, and make sure to drink lots of it (it has been proven to speed up your metabolism)! Eat PLENTY of fruits and vegetables. They're low-cal, so in this case, more is better than less.

      The first couple of days of this diet may seem tough, but trust me, soon it will become a habit! Also, this is a good diet that will help you lose weight, and then maintain your new lower weight for life, and never go back to the way you used to be. Good luck!

  29. QUESTION:
    Can I mix the meals on the South Beach diet?
    I wanted to try the south beach diet. I am reading the book and looking at the meals in phase 1. I was wondering If I didn't like one dinner plan, If I could use a different dinner plan from another day? Like, the 4th day for dinner is salmon. If I dont like salmon, can I use the chicken recipe for day 5 instead? If I like one breakfast, can I eat that one everyday or do i have to follow the day by day recipes, or are they all the same in the end? I hope I made sense! =) Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Check out South Beach Diet Quick and Easy Cookbook -- it has some great recipes! (My favorite is the shrimp, snow peas and soy sauce.) Good luck!! (You'll do great!)
      P.S. You can absolutely mix it up -- just as long as you are not adding food that is off the diet -- like Twinkies. (lol)

  31. QUESTION:
    Is this a good weight loss plan for me??
    I am going to do a week of a diet plan from "the diet for teenagers only". I am a 14 yr old girl weighing in around 165 and i'm 5'8". I want to lose about 35 pounds in 3-5months and I will also go to the gym for an hour three times a week and lift and then the other days I'll run 1-3miles on my tredmill. Is this a good weight loss plan? Is this a good weight loss book? Will this book and the plan help me lose a lot of the weight? How long roughly do u think it will take roughly to lose this weight? How many pounds do u think I'll lose a week? Does this book have a good plan? Please answer and if u could, right kinda a long answer because I need ur input so I feel more reassured..hopefully. Thank you so much

    • ANSWER:
      You may think right now about looking good involves COMPLETELY with the scale... but let me tell you that's the exact opposite. You could skip a meal, weigh yourself, and see that you've dropped 2-3 lbs. That's muscle and water weight (NOT FAT). Measure your body parts that you want to lose weight from (belly, thighs, arms). Use that to record everything. Maybe 3-4 times a week weigh yourself, but don't make it a complete continuous thing. The workout plan seems like it'll work. Eat between 1,500-1,700 calories a day and drink tons of water and make sure you get your vitamins, fiber and calcium. ALSO, stop eating AT LEAST 3 hrs. before bed. You'll definitely see a difference.
      Best of luck =)

  33. QUESTION:
    I need a diet and exercise plan! (14 year old female)?
    I need to loose a lot of weight!!! im... about 5 foot 3"and im guessing around 200 pounds now! the last time i weighed my self was a while ago and i was 175 but i hurt my foot and stoped doing sports for a while and got bigger.

    Ive tried to diet and exersize but it never really worked out. Exersizing is ok for me because i don't mind running and doing sit ups, i just haven't done it. But dieting is really hard for me expecally in my house. My parents are really fit and really healthy they can eat a lot and not get fat, my little brother has Crohns and is really skinny so he needs to eat alot, and my older sister is recovering from anerexia.

    We don't have a lot of money right now, mostly because of my brothers high medical bills so we don't have much food here, and the food we do have is food to help you gain weight! So, we usualy order pizza or some other cheap greasy food!! Honestly even if we had a stocked fridge full of healthy food, i don't know how to diet at all! So i really need help! i need a web site or diet and exersizing plan that will have fast resolts but not impossible for me to do. please help!

    also what is a good weight for me to be at?? how many pounds should i loose and how long will it appoximatly take?

    thanks in advance!
    (websites-books are helpfull)

    • ANSWER:
      The best answer I can give you is to not diet...
      This may sound counter productive but don't cut calories.

      Eat healthier foods. Lean proteins like chicken, plenty of carbs (bread, rice) and plenty of veggies.

      Try to eat 6 smaller meals a day, this keeps your metabolism up.

      Try to exercise for 30 minutes to an hour 6-7 days a week, this could be walking, running, swimming, push ups, sit ups, jumping jacks, pull ups. air boxing. Any of these, in any combination for 30-60 minutes with very little break time.

      When exercising you need to stay aware of how fast your heart is beating. There are a lot of websites to let you know how to take your heart rate if you don't know, just google it. This is important because you need to stay in your target heart rate to get the most out of your workout. Here's a website so you can calculate your target heart rate.
      http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/target-heart-rate/SM00083

      You also need to be drinking lots of water every day. In fact, this is probably the only liquid you should be drinking.
      It is calorie free, cleans your system, regulates organs, and helps to convert fat into energy.
      The guideline for how much water you should drink is your weight switching lbs to ounces, so 200lbs for this purpose is 200 ounces. Than divide that by 2. So 200/2= 100 ounces of water. The standard glass of water is 8 ounces so 12.5 or twelve and a half glasses of water is what you need to be drinking per day.

      This is a good website to get you in the right direction of thinking
      http://exercise.about.com/cs/weightloss/a/howtoloseweight.htm

      If you do want to go the calorie counting path, use the website above to calculate your metabolism, and current calorie intake. From there write down everything you eat and drink, how much calories, and fat are in each and than look at how you could improve upon them. If you write it down, you can than know exactly putting in to your body, and what steps you need to take in order to get to the goals that you want. I keep a little book on me to write down calories and fat counts, along with proteins and other minerals and nutrients. If I go out to eat, I try before to look up the information online about the nutrition information of my food before I go, but always just go with a healthier choice.

      How quickly you lose weight is dependent on you. How hard you work, and how well you stick to your plans. Also, if you find that you are still eating to much, or not healthy enough you don't really have to have the will power to stop. You just need to exercise more, but the only way you will get the results you want, in the time you want is to eat healthier and exercise.

      To find out a target weight that you want use this tool http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/

      This of course doesn't apply to everyone but can once again guide you in the right direction. What really helps is if you have a buddy working with you to help push you, and for you to help push them.

      Also, if you find pictures of a celebrity or athlete who has the same body type as you, it can help to look at their pictures to help motivate you as to try to look more like them.

      Good luck, and be safe about it.

  34. QUESTION:
    What is a really good diet program to get on.?
    I have been working on losing weight for the past 2 months. I went from 305 down to 276 in about a month which involved running twice a day for at least 30mins a time, 5 days a week and a diet plan that was 6 days at a calorie intake of 1500 or less a day and 1 "cheat day" of whatever I wanted (diet based upon caloric shock and your leptin level).I platued big time. Couldn't get past 276, Of course, being dishearted, i then let up for about 3 weeks and went back up to 285 for weight. I then went back to working out once a day doing push-ups and sit-ups (3x25-30) and then staitionary bike or olyptical for 30 mins. I went back down to about 278.

    So I have found a workout program that I just started (like yesterday) and already love it. It goes as follows:

    Monday: Flat Bench - 6-10 Reps
    Decline - 10-12 Reps
    Incline - 10-12 Reps
    Pec Dec - 10-12 Reps
    Weighted Crunches - 20 Reps
    Hyper Extensions - 20 Reps
    Bridges - 1 min Reps

    Tuesday:Squats - 10-12 Reps
    Lunges - 10-12 Reps
    Calf Raises - 10-12 Reps

    Wednsday:Up/Right Rows - 8-10 Reps
    Side Lateral Raises - 10-12 Reps
    Dumbell Front Raises - 10-12 Reps
    Shoulder Press - 10-12 Reps
    Shrugs - 10-12 Reps
    Hyperextensions - 25 Reps
    Over Head Side Bend - 25 Reps
    Russian Twists - 25 Reps

    Thursday:Curls - 10-12 Reps
    Hammer Head Curls - 10-12 Reps
    Push Backs - 10-12 Reps
    Cable Rope Pushdowns - 10-12 Reps
    Cable Bar Pushdowns - 10-12 Reps
    Barbell Curls - 10-12 Reps

    Friday: Deadlifts - 10-12 Reps
    Pulldowns - 10-12 Reps
    Seated Military Press - 10-12 Reps
    Seated Cable Rows - 10-12 Reps
    One Arm Isolation Rows - 10-12 Reps
    Chin Ups - 10-12 Reps
    Hanging Leg Raises - 20 Reps
    Russian Twists - 15 Reps
    Bridges - 1 min Reps

    And also 30mins of Cardio either after lifting (I do m-w-f) or before lifting (t-th)

    SO again, I love it and am excited. But to lose weight you need a good workout plan and DIET!!!!
    I learned that the 7-day "cheat day" diet works to an extent, but super easy to fall off of. And so.....

    What is a really good diet program to get on? I have done alot of research and it seems that every diet plan I looked at was "the best diet out there" but honestly, I don't want to buy a book, or download crap, or have a meal planner mailed to me for tons of $$$. Sorry if I don't believe in purchasing a product (with this one time special offer and a warning that if your intent is to only lose a few pounds, this isn't for you) when the very next product I look at, and the one after that all same the same thing.

    I am looking either for a plan that someone has ACTUALLY done, stuck to, and has had sucess from and not just for 6 weeks either but for a good amount of time. I want something that is gonna help me with my life style change, not something that is change my life (for about 6 or so weeks).

    And I swear to god if I see that amino berry acid promo as an answer, I am gonna flip!!!!

    Healthy diet change plan, help needed!?
    I'm 14, 5' 3.5' and 105 lbs. Perfect (for me) height and weight. Although, eating choices can be difficult, so this year I have resolved to eat healthier. Eating 'vegetarian' foods. Eating this way has a lot of health benefits, and some research shows expelling meats, eggs, and dairy from a diet is also a benefit to the planet. And on top of that, I like the healthy foods more, and if I wanna change, its now or never! But... With the 'nutrition fact' labels and serving sizes, I get very confused. I need to know how much of what I should eat, and I will stick to that. I'm also a track runner so I will be getting exercise, and of course, I will drink water. Any useful info would be great, I am going to the doc next week so, I will go over everything with a doctor, no worries! Any tips, guidelines, recommendations for books or blogs about vegetarianism, or healthy living, that you wanna share, much appreciated! Thank You!

  36. QUESTION:
    Depressed. P90X. Not losing weight. Changing diet doesn't work.?
    I weigh 135 lbs and have weighed that much for about a year. I'm 18 and am 5'4". My doctor says I'm fine and I know I'm healthy but I want to be thinner. In fact this is all I want. My therapist told me that losing weight won't make me happy, but I am confident that this is not true. If it were true, people wouldn't be posting their weight loss success stories on the web and thanking programs like P90X for giving their lives back to them. The source of my unhappiness is not having lost more than 2 pounds in the years that I've been working at this. I feel like I've tried absolutely everything except what has been proven unhealthy, like fad diets and pills. Four years ago I tried just eating less, but I was always hungry. That went on for about 6 or 7 months and I went from 107 lbs at 5'2.5" to 96.8 lbs. I realize now that I wasn't eating enough protein at the time and wasn't taking in enough healthy fats. Now, the most I can lose by strictly following Tosca Reno's Eat-Clean Diet plan is 2 pounds (BTW in her book she stresses that this is not a diet but a lifestyle change). What I've learned is that I must be at the lowest weight that is healthy for me. But I can't accept that because I see hardly any muscle tone. Sometimes when I eat healthy food too strictly, I end up craving more food and just eating more food altogether. When I ate healthy food for a month, 5 meals a day with a recommended cheat meal every week, I ended up gaining weight. When I switched back to eating a little sugary snack everyday with a reasonably balanced diet, I dropped the weight again.
    Then I decided to eat normally--for me that's eating a balanced diet with a sugary snack everyday--and do P90X for 2 months. That's how long I have until I have to go away to college. I'm almost done with my third week. The first week I dropped to 133 lbs because the exercise was decreasing my appetite. It felt really good not to have to consume as much food to satisfy my needs. However, once my body started building muscle I had to eat more again. I'm back to 135 lbs. At first my sister said I looked thinner but I know that's just because my stomach looked thinner since there was less food in it that first week. I've seen small changes in my arms. My shoulders look more muscular. However, yesterday I was out with my friends and they said nothing about me looking any different. They don't know I'm doing P90X and didn't notice anything. My clothes aren't fitting looser either. I feel like close to nothing has changed, despite the fact that I'm working really hard at every workout.
    This morning I felt awful. I was supposed to do the Yoga workout today but I couldn't stop crying during the first 5 minutes of it so I had to stop. My sister is annoyed at my crying and tells me I look bad in everything that I wear. It doesn't seem fair that she so thin and toned and I'm not. When we were younger it was always the opposite.

    Any encouragement at this point will be greatly appreciated. Just please don't coach me about my diet. I've been reading internet information about weight loss from both credited sources and weight loss forums for about 5 years now, and I've put myself through regimens constantly for just as long. Unless you're a dietician or nutritionist, I'll have my doubts about whatever you say concerning what I eat. My question mainly goes out to those familiar with fitness/exercise.

    I wrote everything I thought was necessary for you to get an idea of what shape I'm in. Any questions, please ask.

    • ANSWER:
      After reading your post it seems to me that perhaps you just need to spend a bit more time building some strength rather than losing weight. Some people think that if you can just lose fat then the muscle will show and you will look tone. However, if you have very little muscle, then there will be nothing to show through. So i suggest sticking with p90x for the 90 days. I'm about 1/3 the way through and although i don't really see results i know its a work in progress. So, i suggest just trying to eat the best you can, and keep at p90x. Its definitely a fat busting, muscle building work out, but it does take time. I think 90 days is reasonable for change anyways, wouldn't you agree?

      Good luck!

I spent 6 months working out 5 days a week for 1 hour (1/2 hour jogging/walking, 1/2 hour weights/resistance training). I ate 1300 calories a day, mostly lean meat and veggies and recorded it in a food diary. I didn't lose one pound. I even hired a personal trainer for a month so I could try some more interesting exercises. I still didn't lose anything.

    I was thin as a teenager but only because I ate about 800 calories a day. I am so depressed about this I don't want to leave my house. I tried everything by the book and I was so diligent. I feel like I tried my best and I still failed. Are there any health professionals or personal trainers out there that have any ideas about what I can do to lose just 20 pounds?
    Thanks for the answers stating diet and exercise will help you lose weight and that I shouldn't eat junk food. My point is I ate very healthy and exercised and I lost nothing! I am looking for some explanation for why this isn't working.

    • ANSWER:
      When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
      If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
      will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
      underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
      exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
      diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
      after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
      your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
      you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey
      cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your
      diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
      calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
      start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
      most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
      lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
      disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
      your problem areas for men and women. It's not necessarily to become a
      bodybuilder or even join a gym - a couple of dumbbells will help you
      to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

      i lost 60 pounds with portion control only. i didn't wait until i felt full. i just ate smaller meals. it got to the point where a fist-sized portion really did fill me up for 3-4 hours. i usually eat about 4 times a day though, but splurging every once in a while didn't cause me to gain weight! oh, and a multivitamin kept my metabolism going well, so the decrease in food never had any negative nutritional effect.

    Weight Training and dieting, 5 weeks and no noticable results!!!?
    I have been using Jillian Michael's book "Winning by Losing". Is seems to be a super good plan but I have been at it for 5 weeks and have not seen any results. I have actually gained a few pounds. I am working out 4 days a week with Cardio 5 days. I have cleaned up my diet as well but there has been no visable difference. I am 5'4", 145, 28 years old. I am fairly small framed so I have a good layer of fat going on and I could really stand to lose about 30 pounds.
    Any ideas or tips as to why this is going so slowly would be great.
    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Keep going! I know it's discouraging but keep with it. Instead of checking the scale everyday, just do it once a week. You could be gaining some muscle, so don't rely on the scale to see results. Measure your waist, hips, thighs, and arms to track your progress.

  47. QUESTION:
    Do i have to snack on a low gi diet?
    I have recently started a low gi diet following the 12 week plan in the book called the low gi diet lose weight with smart carbs. for my weight it says i need to eat 3 serves or carbs a day plus 3 serves of protein plus 2 serves fruit and 5 serves veg. It says to eat these over 5-6 meals a day. My question is that when it comes to snack time i dont feel hungry. In relation to portions i am following what they say a portion is in the book so my portions arent larger then they should be so that not the issue. My question is do i still need to eat if i dont feel hungry? I thought that was the point of a low gi diet that it keeps u fuller for longer so u eat less so it seems strange to me to eat when im not hungry.

    • ANSWER:
      Even if you don't feel hungry, you still have to eat a tiny bit just because it's part of the diet. It does keep you fuller for longer, so the fact that that part is working for you is great, but force yourself to eat something small like half an orange/banana.

  49. QUESTION:
    Can anyone out there who knows anything about eating disorders help me?
    Starting at the beginning of July I got really depressed about my weight (which was 285 lbs). I had let my weight balloon out of control at an early age. I would eat anytime I experienced any kind of emotion. I would eat when I was sad, angry, happy, nervous, etc.. I decided that day I would lose the weight that so many diets over the years had failed to achieve. The first week was easy—the depression allowed me to feel no hunger so I ate nothing and lost 15 lbs. The second week I was feeling good about losing weight but my hunger returned—I allowed myself to eat pickles (5 cals each) and a spoonful of cottage cheese a couple times a day. The second week I lost 10 lbs. The 3rd and 4th week were the hardest because I was no longer satisfied with only losing 10 lbs. a week—I wanted my weight to fall off faster but pickles were no longer satisfying so my calorie intake increased to about 500 cals/day resulting in only a 10 lb weight loss for those 2 weeks. The 5th week of my diet I returned to school from summer break and started receiving compliments from my classmates and my teachers. I told everyone it was exercise and a diet plan that was to credit my weight loss. Every day I was being complimented and it felt so good that it made me more determined to lose more weight. I no longer had to force myself not to eat because the thought of food had started to make me nauseous whenever I looked at how many calories everything had. Within a week of returning to school my diet had changed to no more than 200 cals/day with some days being under 50 calories. I was losing between 7-10 lbs a week for about 6 weeks but then I hit a plateau and my weight loss changed to about 4-5 lbs a week. At this point my cutting got worse. I went several days without eating anything at all and then landed myself in the hospital with chest pain. After a few tests and an IV I was discharged with orders to stay better hydrated (they had no clue I wasn’t eating). I decided to talk to someone about what I was going through for any suggestions about what I could do to help me not be so scared of calories. I talked to one of my instructors at school (who kept complimenting me for exercising and losing weight) and told her I was losing weight not because I was exercising but because I wasn’t able to eat. We talked for a while and then hung up. She called me back a few minutes later and said she had gotten some referrals for me that would be helpful and she encouraged me to stop by her office and pick up the list. When I picked up the list from my instructor I looked over the list but had no intentions of calling an eating disorder specialist. I decided to talk about this issue with my counselor instead. When I told my counselor what was going on she also referred me to an eating disorder specialist. After struggling for another 2 weeks with food issues (food was fast becoming my enemy and I could hardly look at it anymore) I decided to call a psychologist from the list. I met with her the first time and she explained fees, session cancellations, policies, etc. The second session we talked about how diets don’t work and she suggested reading some chapters from a book called “diets don’t work”. The 3rd session we talked about setting up a menu for me to follow that was approx 1200 cals/day. I told her that I wasn’t ready to make the promise to follow a plan with that many calories and so she suggested I keep doing what I’m doing until I reach my target weight and then I’ll either become ready on my own to follow a healthy eating plan or I’ll end up in the hospital again. I was a little shocked to learn that this was how eating disorders are treated (at least by her). I figured we would go little by little until I felt comfortable with food again—not be stuck with an all or nothing option. Right now I’m at 185 lbs so I’ve lost 100 lbs. so far. I expressed to my psychologist I want to lose another 75 lbs to put me at 110 (I’m 5’6” so this is average). She mentioned that until I’m at my target weight we would just discuss some other issues and then when the time came to work on this food thing that we would switch to that track then. She mentioned that she is only able to help people overcome eating disorders when they are truly ready. Will I ever be ready? What should I do? I know I need to start eating right but I like the track I’m on now too much to stop. I want to reach 110 lbs and then just maintain it but am I safe to do this for just a few more months until then? What are the chances that I’ll be able to stop at 110? Is it common for people to find themselves better all of a sudden?

    How It Works
    By some unspecified magical force, the combination of the suggested foods included in this plan is supposed to create a unique metabolic reaction and boost fat burning.

    Without an author or book, there is no documentation or explanation of how the 3 Day Diet food combinations burn fat, increase energy, cleanse the body, or lower cholesterol.

    As the name suggests, the 3 Day Diet lasts only three days, though it's said that it can be repeated indefinitely, as long as you alternate with 4-5 days of undefined "normal eating." The purpose of returning to your usual eating style is to keep your metabolism from slowing, reverting to fat-storing, starvation mode.

    • ANSWER:
      My mother, aunt, and sister did this. I remember my mother losing 7 pounds but I'm not sure how much my aunt or sister lost. they also worked out too though. Not excessively, but before they went to bed they spent like 10-15 minutes doing sit ups or squats.


5 Day Detox Diet Plan

3 Day Detox Diet

Is a 3 day detox diet for you? If you are like me and perhaps over do it with junk food. Drink too much caffeine and perhaps over indulge with alcohol, why not try a 3 day detox diet. Yes this will be a great challenge to your system but it is something you can do and it may change your life.

You are not going to have to starve yourself and if you follow the plan properly you will not even be hungry. You will though crave for things such as coffee and your favourite junk food but remember this is only for 3 days.

Let's first look at what you can drink. Well forget tea, coffee and alcohol and also any type of soda as you are going to be restricted to water and fruit juices. If you have a juicer you will be amazed of some of the great tasting juice drinks you can make. When most newbie's try their first detox they are amazed at the different types of good tasting drinks they can quickly make with a decent juicer.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Has anyone been successful with the Boots 5 Day Plan Detox?
    The reason why I ask is I just finished doing it and had great results and wondered if anyone else did. I'm on a low carb diet and I lost a bit of weight but never could feel it in my clothes but after 5 days on the detox I finally can feel a weight loss, plus I've felt so vibrant and refreshed.

    • ANSWER:
      Nope.

  2. QUESTION:
    Do you know of a 5-day Detox Diet?
    I've got 5 days until soccer season starts, and I need to get all the toxins out of my body. Does anyone know of a plan I could follow that could best help me with this issue? I'm 5'10", 120 lbs, and in decent shape. Our team ran the whole summer but our coach gave us a 3 week break and I failed in exercising. Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      If you only have 5 days until soccer season starts, I wouldn't recommend detoxing. You won't have the energy to put out the kind of energy necessary. You'll be fine though, if you want an 'edge' you probably won't get it from detoxing. Just start eating more healthfully and do a gradual detox by cutting out junk and sodas. Lots of micro nutrients from veggies and fruits. You'll be fine!

  3. QUESTION:
    How do I plan out a five day detox or cleansing diet?

    • ANSWER:

  4. QUESTION:
    Good detox diet plan for me?
    Please suggest a REALLY good and clean 7-14 day detox! I want to shed a good 5-10 pounds of water weight. I already it pretty healthy but I would love to lose the last few stubborn pounds. Preferably a diet consisting of raw veggies, fruits, water and no meat or seafood OR eggs whatsoever.

    • ANSWER:
      Popular detox diets promise to flush poisons from your body, purge pounds of excess fat, clear your complexion and bolster your immune system.

      But experts say there's little evidence that extreme regimens such as the Master Cleanse or Fruit Flush do anything more than lead to unpleasant, unhealthy side effects.
      The idea behind these plans, which can last anywhere from three days to about a month,is to rid the body of toxins absorbed from the environment and the less-than-healthy foods we eat. This cleansing is supposed to leave you feeling energized.

      Some plans restrict all solid foods and instruct dieters to survive on only low-calorie beverages for days at a time. The Joshi holistic diet involves an elaborate list of so-called acid-forming foods to avoid for three weeks, including seemingly healthy veggies and grains.

      Many intestinal experts say we don't need an extreme diet to cleanse our insides.

      “Your body does a perfectly good job of getting rid of toxins on its own,” says Dr. Nasir Moloo, a gastroenterologist with Capitol Gastroenterology Consultants Medical Group in Sacramento, Calif. “There’s no evidence that these types of diets are necessary or helpful.”

      Anyone interested in detoxifying their body might think about paying a little more attention to their body and less attention to the people trying to get their money. The body already has nature's most effective detoxification system. It's called the liver. The liver changes the chemical structure of foreign compounds so they can be filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, which then excrete them in the urine.

  5. QUESTION:
    How much weight can I loose if I do the detox diet for 5 days?
    Im planning on drinking only water for the next 5 days and working out for about an hour everyday. My workouts consist of only cardio. I usually just run a few miles and then stop. But at school my friends will think im starving myself so could a salad with lowfat dressing and a bottle of water be an exception when I eat lunch?

    2-3 Day Detox At Home Diet..?
    What is a good 2-3 day detox diet?
    what ingredients should i use? (that are easy to get at grocery store)
    and one that actually tastes decent?
    how would i go about doing a detox diet?
    i eat very healthy, i just want to clean out my system and drop a few unwanted pounds.
    I normally exercise 3-4 days a week.
    how would a detox plan work? should i not exercise as hard as i do on that 2-3 day span?
    advice please =)

    I weight about 128 and i'm 5'4, i'm 19 years old.
    help please =D

    • ANSWER:
      Go to your nearest health food store. They should have a supplement department. In that department should be someone like me, who can ask you all kinds of questions about what you're eating, and what your health is like. Then they can recommend the product that's best for you, and tell you about any stuff you may experience. Usually, a 2 or 3 day detox just makes you pee a lot, but the longer cleanses can put you into a healing crisis.

Thanks you sooooo much guys!!!!!!!!!!!! please no rude ccomments:( sorry if i sound a little mean up there ^^^^. but please answer!!! thanks guyss:) have a ggreat day!!!!!! also best answer 10 points:D

    • ANSWER:
      Start by lowering your calorie intake to 800-1000 calories a day. You'll need to keep a log of your food intake to get an idea of your eating habits. Next, you need to add cardio to your day. If you are unable to run, jog or power walk. If you have access to a gym use the treadmill on the highest incline and use the speed of 4.2 or 4.3 mph. Do that incline and speed for 60-90 minutes and you can burn close to 1,000 calories. Therefore, if you are able to diet and workout daily, you'll lose weight in no time.

    Ok well I still have some time to fit into my bikini for this summer. I've been working out at the gym about 3-4 days a week, and it seems like I'm missing something. I need a good diet plan! I was reading something on Oprah's website and she is going for a Detox diet. I thought I'd give it a try! I'm asking you guys for advice cause I've never, "dieted" before and man do I need to start. I'm 5'8 and 170lbs, and for me thats over weight. I had my daughter 3 years ago, and I haven't been able to loose the weight. So I wanted to try this detox diet. I love fruits, vegetables, and I also thought about skipping meat products, and going for fish. What do you think? Please give me opinion, and any detox information that you might know about. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      i think that sounds like a great idea!
      it is also very healthy if you stick to the plan and dont go overboard. As long as you have a certain protein factor in your diet it is okay to skip meats. I think i saw the detox lady on her show, i thought about it too! tell me how it goes!!

    "Get your fat arse to the gym lardy!!!"

  11. QUESTION:
    40 day water fast for detox and weightloss?
    I really would like to embark on a 40 day water fast for weight loss and to detox. After wards I plan on switching to a raw vegan diet. Given the fact that I am changing my eating habits, is water fasting an effective weight loss method?
    I would like to lose at least 40 pounds I currently weight 130 and am 5'1.
    While on my fast I plan to go on an hour long walk everyday.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm in exactly the same position at the moment only different stats and I've tried a 10 day fast before.

      After the 10 days, i felt incredible! it was aw some, i lost about a 1.5 pounds a day.... BUT- once i ate my first tea-spoon of food i went completely berserk. i ate everything in sight and gained all the weight back and felt absolutely miserable.

      In the meantime I've done some research (should've done before hand) and found that 'Breaking the fast' is universally the hardest bit.

      ANYWAY- i was thinking it would make it much easier if we had someone in the same boat, so if you wanna be 'fasting buddies'.... hit me up k?

      Best of luck otherwise anyway! : ) in answer to your question, YES it is so worth it, YES it works, and NO it is no way near as hard as it sounds.... only once you finish do things get sketchy.

    • ANSWER:
      Below is a list of negative calorie foods that will boost your metabolism.

      These foods don't actually have negative calories but when you eat these foods raw or slightly cooked your body burns more calories digesting and processing them than what is in the food itself.

      For a healthy weight loss add some of these foods to your diet each day. Most of them are full of healthy nutrients.

      Negative calorie fruits:
      apples
      cranberries
      grapefruit
      lemons
      mangoes
      oranges
      pineapple
      raspberries
      strawberries
      tangerines

      Negative calorie vegetables:
      asparagus
      beets
      broccoli
      cabbage (green)
      carrots
      cauliflower
      celery
      Chile peppers (hot)
      cucumber
      dandelions

    What is a good detox diet to loose weight for this summer?

    • ANSWER:
      No miracle pills needed. Most people want to lose weight fast, say working out for a month. Then they stop because it's boring, there friends don't want to exercise or they achieved their goal. Then they get mad when they gain the weight again. Make your workout a fun lifestyle so you stay on track. If as a child you liked to play basketball or ride a bike or swim; then do it, this should keep you on track for life. Go back to what's FUN for you. I prefer running or biking because I don't depend on anybody but myself to get my workout.
      Eat healthy, food is energy you need to work-out. There is a theory if you just diet and don't excercise, your metabolism will slow down thus you won't lose weight. More important is that if you don't eat a balanced meal everyday you are cheating your body of vitamin and minerals which help your body function. Low calorie diet wil make you weak, moody and lower your concentration. A diet low in meat will make you weak or even anemic. Jogging is the fastest way to lose weight and it will make you better at any sport because you'll gain endurance. At first you may have to mix walking with your jogging untill you get stronger. You should only lose around 2 pounds per week to lose weight in a healthy fashion, but here's some advise. If you are not overweight you need to run enough to burn ONLY the excess of calories you had for that day. Why my answer? If you run six miles a day which burns about 600 calories or 100 calories per mile but you eat 800 calories more than you should of, than you are still 200 calories over than you should be after your run. Meaning you will not loose weight if you put more calories in your body, than you can burn off; inclusively you can even gain weight even if you're running. So to loose weight you need to burn more calories than you consume. To maintain your current weight you only need to burn off the excess calories for that day. What you need to find out is according to your age and height How many calories you should have daily. Let's say you're suppose to eat 2000 calories per day but ate 2400 you'll need to run 4 miles to burn those extra 400 calories. Let say your overweight but eat 2000 calories per day than any amount of running should produce weight loss. Obviously the more you run the more weight you'll lose. Drinking at least 2 quarts or liters of water a day is very important to help eliminate fat from the body. As you lift weights you will lose fat and grow muscle at the time. Muscles weigh more than fat so don't get confused if it you just started to lift weights and don't see the difference in the scale. The more muscle you grow the more calories your body will burn and leaner you'll get. Gyms now are measuring your body fat percentage when you become a member so they can give you concrete evidence that your fat is decreasing and your muscles are growing. BMI (Body Mass Index) Go to a runnersworld for more advise. Good Luck.

  14. QUESTION:
    What do you all think 'bout Beyonce's maple syrup diet? Check out this article.?
    Maple Syrup Diet
    Lose over a stone in just a fortnight! That’s the promise of the Maple Syrup Diet followed by pop star Beyonce. But is this diet really the best way to shift those excess pounds and will it work for everyone? WLR’s dietitian Juliette Kellow investigates...

    Maple Syrup Diet

    By WLR Dietitian
    Juliette Kellow BSc RD

    This month, the papers have been full of reports about a new diet made famous by pop star Beyonce Knowles.

    The ex-Destiny’s Child singer spilled the beans on how she slimmed down and lost 1½ stone in just two weeks for her new movie, Dreamgirls, due for release next January. Beyonce’s diet apparently consisted of eating nothing for a fortnight, instead surviving on detox drinks consisting of a syrup mixed with lemon juice, water and cayenne pepper!

    The syrup – Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup – is made from the sap of maple and palm trees. Also known as The Lemon Detox, the diet was introduced more than 30 years ago by naturopath Stanley Burroughs. Many of the claimed benefits include weight loss, cleansing the body of toxins, greater resistance to illness, improved concentration, increased energy, clearer skin and eyes, shinier hair and stronger nails.

    The detox drink itself is made by mixing 2 tablespoons of the Natural Tree Syrup (which they say is 20ml) with 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, a pinch of cayenne pepper or ginger and half a pint of hot or cold water. It’s recommended you drink as much as you like, but ideally six to nine glasses daily.

    There are also four detox plans to choose from:

    The Full Detox – this involves surviving solely on the detox drink for 10 days, although it’s recommended that beginners follow it for just 5–7 days. It can also be extended for up to 14 days, but should only be done so with the consent of a health professional.

    Relaxed Version – this involves substituting breakfast, dinner or both these meals with 2–3 glasses of the detox drink. But you should still avoid sweets, processed foods, red meat, fried food, white bread, dairy products, coffee and booze for the remaining meals.

    The Once a Week version – as the name suggests, you skip food and have the detox drinks on one day each week.

    The Master Plan – a hardcore plan that involves a twice-yearly multi-day detox combined with detoxing once a week!
    WLR says:

    Pop star Beyonce may have a figure that many of us envy, but it seems she believes in the ‘no pain, no gain’ mantra to get it that way. In fact, this is one of the most extreme diets ever and makes Carol Vorderman’s detox plans look like a positive food fest.

    This diet is potentially dangerous. Effectively, it involves drinking nothing but sugared water for days on end. Of course you will lose weight, but that’s purely the result of limiting calories excessively.

    A tablespoon (which they say is 10ml) of Natural Tree Syrup contains just 26 calories. That means if you have six drinks a day (each containing the recommended 2 tablespoons of syrup), your daily intake will be just 312 calories. Even nine drinks only provide 468 calories.

    The effects of crash diet

    This low calorie diet plan will leave you hungry, irritable and lacking in energy as your blood sugar levels go on a roller coaster ride of highs and lows. And chances are, the pounds will go straight back on as soon as you ditch the diet.

    But it’s not just the extremely low calorie content that’s worrying. These drinks are devoid of protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals and all the naturally occurring plant chemicals (Phytochemicals) we know help to keep us fit and healthy. After just a few days, it’s likely you’ll become constipated due to the complete lack of fibre in the diet. And if you follow this diet for any length of time, you could end up with low nutrient levels, including iron, calcium, zinc and vitamin C. Meanwhile, a combination of sugar and acid (from the lemon juice) is also a disaster for teeth and so may increase the risk of dental decay.

    As for the idea that the body needs to detox, this is simply nonsense. Our bodies are cleverly designed to get rid of waste products and toxins – that’s one of the main functions of our liver and kidneys.

    Worryingly though, these facts aren’t stopping people from buying this product. Even though it costs a massive £39.99 for a litre (enough for 5 to 7 days), the company that distribute Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup say they’ve gone from selling 500 tins a year to around 2,000 a month!

    Crash Diet Versus Healthy Eating

    Bottom line: this is a crash diet – and one of the worst! Put it to the back of your mind and concentrate on getting a bootylicious body by eating a healthy diet that will shift those pounds slowly – but keep them off for good.

    Can someone come up with a diet plan for me please?
    I'm a 15 year old girl and i weigh around 11st 6lb, which i know is a lot adn im 5"6. I am currently eating healthily and losing around 1lb per week and I want to lose more than that per wekk in the coming weeks to christmas. I dont want a seriously radical diet that i lose like 5lbs with per week, but maybe 2-3lbs per week. I have done a detox diet before so i am up for hard work and im pretty determined. I walk to school which is around 1km and uphill, so that is pretty hard work, walk my dog for around 15 mins per day and i do PE and stuff at school.
    I want something that includes breakfast, lunch, mid afternoon snack and maybe a mid morning snack. I do not wish for it to include an evening meal because i will eat with the rest of my family, i'll just avoid the bad stuff.
    Im a size 14 and i want to be down to a size 10-12 by christmas. HELP please! thank you x x

    • ANSWER:

  16. QUESTION:
    How does this diet plan sound to you?
    Okay, I know it's sort of unhealthy to find the "quick-fix"...but I've slacked on my diet lately and been eating alot of junk...and this Saturday I have 2g2 my friend's Sweet 16 Party....I currently weigh 150, and I'm 5'10. I want to lose as much as I can my this Saturday...At the most 10 lbs....I know you may think it's impossible, but I lose weight really quick(im 14 so im still young)...just as quick as I gain....which can be 5 pounds in 2 days......so anyways, just for now I was thinking...

    Master Cleansing detox...the Beyonce thing.

    I'll bring a bottle of water mixed with cayenne pepper and lemon juice(w/o the syrup) to school and drink it throughout the day, and then when I get home, for dinner I will have some sort of lean protein...like fish or tofu...and veggies. I'm in volleyball so if I feel like I'm about to faint I'll have a granola bar. I will do this tomorrow, friday, and sunday until 7..when the party starts.

    How much weight do u think i'll lose??
    Britta...it's embarassingly unrealistic that you are a top contributor...what you have answered is nothing more than a logical assertion. Which by the way has nothing to do with the question. I obviously am aware that I am no beyonce, what I asked was...let me repeat..."how, much, weight, do, you, think, i'll, loose? And instead of "contributing" and "helping" me with whatever you are learning in medicine school...you gave me a sarcastic statement. Thanks for that, b*****. Lol...you're probably just grouchy because you tried the same plan and it didn't work for you = [ ...lol

    • ANSWER:
      You're not Beyonce.

      Beyonce has lots of money, a personal trainer, and a nutritionist at hand.

      Your plan is embarassingly unrealistic.

    good diet/exercise plan?
    please help. im 5' 2", 145 lbs & i want to lose 10-15 lbs. i need a diet and exercise plan that works for a busy teenage girl.

    i already work out regularly (dance 12 hrs a week and run about 2 miles per day on the weekends)
    i eat healthy foods (whole grain bread, skim milk, lots of fruits & veggies, green & white teas, fast food once or twice a month)

    but for some reason i cannot lose weight. i have tried very hard, and it just doesnt work. i need a diet/exercise plan that truly works. i have used detox and diet pills and found they do not work. i need something that is possible for a high school student to do.
    oh and i really want to lose weight on my thighs. i have a fairly flat stomach, and my arms are really strong from ballet, so i need good workouts to lose thighs. something other than running or lunges...

    • ANSWER:
      Well I'm sure you already know this, but if you eat healthy and work out that much, you are healthy and your weight shouldn't bother you. But easier said than done right? My suggestions would be drink a lot of water and cut out all soda including diet. Sodium and caffiene are not good for weight loss. Maybe try lifting weights. A little muscle mass with make your body burn more calories all day long. And last but not least...I just bought wii fit. It is sooo much fun and it keeps track of weight loss while providing fun exercise. Expensive, but defintely effective.

      PS 5'2 145 lbs is not at all fat!

  19. QUESTION:
    how much weight can i lose if i follow this diet and exercise plan?
    okay so for diet, i'm thinking one day a week of a liquid detox diet where i only drink freshly juiced fruits and veggies (carrot/apple juice, grapefruit/orange/lemon juice, etc) and i'll have 1 serving of an organic protein shake made with soymilk. then for the other 6 days, i'll follow the South Beach Diet Phase 1 (cut out all carbs, have only protein and veggies). and i'll drink a whole bunch of water and take a multivitamin each day.
    for exercise, i'll do a warm-up of about 10 minutes of jogging and 5 minutes of stretching. then i'll do a 20-minute workout on the "lateral thigh trainer" machine, which is basically a stair master, 15 minutes on the elliptical, 15 minutes doing weight training and toning exercises (using both a bowflex machine and free weights, and doing things with no weights like push ups and crunches). and then a cool down of a 10 minute 4.5mph uphill walk on treadmill and then some more stretching.

    how much weight will i lose if i stick to this diet and exercise plan? how long will it take me to lose 20-25 pounds? how can i make the weight come off faster?

    if it helps, right now i'm 17 years old, 5'2'' and 145 pounds. i'd like to get down to around 115-120 pounds as soon as possible.

    • ANSWER:
      AVOID WHITE FOODS
      This is one easy way to remember what not to eat. If it is made from sugar, flour, potatoes, rice or corn - just say no. Remembering this rule of thumb will make it easier to recognize those rice cakes as an unhealthy high-carb snack.
      Always look for colorful fruits and veggies to substitute for the white ones. Buy broccoli, lettuce, bell peppers, green beans and peas, brown rice in moderation, leafy greens like kale and spinach, apples, melons, oranges and grapes.
      These foods are not only colorful they are also high in fiber, nutrients and important antioxidants. Eating colorful fruits and vegetables will give your diet variety as well as give you added health benefits.

  20. QUESTION:
    Master Cleanse Diet.....Detox Question?
    Okay, Im not going on the "Master cleanse" diet to lose weight but I have heard that the lemonade works for clearing your body of toxins. However, I have a question. I planned to do the diet for 5 days to clear my body, but when I am done with the detox does this mean I have to stop smoking ( I smoke cigarettes and go to hookah bars sometimes). I am not going to smoke while I am detoxing, but I want to smoke when I get done with the detox. Will I be defeating the purpose of detoxing? Will the smoke bring back ALL of the toxins I cleared my body of or will the cleanse at least clear some of the toxins? Just asking because I told my friend that "I cant wait until this is over to have a cig" and he said everything you got rid of will instantly come back if you smoke.... please enlighten me

    • ANSWER:
      You body is not full of toxins. Both it and your colon are self cleansing.
      Anyone interested in detoxifying their body might think about paying a little more attention to their body and less attention to the people trying to get their money. The body already has nature's most effective detoxification system. It's called the liver. The liver changes the chemical structure of foreign compounds so they can be filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, which then excrete them in the urine.

      Dr Roger Clements, a chemist at the USC school of pharmacy, said tests have proved that no extra toxins were expelled from the body on detox diets and that suggesting the digestive system needs a break is ludicrous.

  21. QUESTION:
    2-day liquid diet...good idea? ?
    I'm 17, 5'2", 150 pounds and trying to get down to around 120 which is what my doctor said I should be. I know I'm going to have to start a healthy lifestyle with healthy eating and exercise to do this, but I'm thinking about going on a 2 day liquid diet for today and tomorrow to detox my system and to get my hydrated again 'cause I can feel that I'm extremely dehydrated. Thi liquid diet will consist of mostly water (at least 80 ounces a day). But I'll also be drinking one serving of organic soy protein powder mixed in organic unsweetened soymilk (I know that sounds disgusting, but I'm a vegan and I'm used to it) and I'll be having one serving of v8 fusion just to make sure I get vitamins. I'll start exercising too, but obviously doing some was workouts since I won't have food to give me energy. Probably just do 30-45 walking on the treadmill at about 3.5-4 mph maybe with a slight incline. And I'll be doing crunches/push ups/squats/leg lifts too. But I won't work myself too hard until I start eating healthy foods again on Wednesday. Will Thi help jump-start my new healthy lifestyle? Will I see any results just from this 2 day diet plan?

    • ANSWER:
      You'll do nothing more but gain more weight after those two days are over, seriously who wants to only drink for two days and not get any benefits in the long run!

      You have received good advice about eating a healthy diet to "detox" your body.
      The only other natural solution I can recommend is eating a small amount of bee pollen to help you build an immunity to the allergens in your area. The key is to purchase local pollen.
      Most commercial bee pollen pills are generic pollens and do not target the plants in your specific area.
      Find a local honey producer. They will have pollen. YOu can get a good sized container for like .

  23. QUESTION:
    will this detox diet work and how much weight will i loose?
    Foods to Eat
    Use organic fruits and vegetables as they have less pollutants and chemicals. Organic food also has a higher nutritional content than non-organic commercialized produce.
    Basically your diet should mostly consist of juiced, raw, frozen, or lightly steamed fruits and veggies. Corn and avocados should be avoided, white potatoes can be eaten only in moderation. Eating a variation each day will ensure you are getting enough vitamins and keep this diet as interesting as possible.
    Foods to Avoid
    Here is a brief list of foods to avoid while on this plan. To get the full detoxing effects, stick to the diet and be sure that you don't cheat!
    Dairy and animal products
    Bread, pasta, grains, cereal
    Chocolate
    Nuts
    Sauces
    Pickled vegetables or canned fruit
    Alcohol and cigarettes
    Coffee and tea (except green and herbal)
    Meal Plans
    - Breakfast
    Variations of fruit or fruit puree are great for breakfast. They are nutritious, filling and the natural sugars will give you energy to get through the morning.
    To make a fruit puree, cut up your fruit and place in a pot on the stove with a small amount of water. Cover and leave it on a low heat until the fruit is soft. Now just throw it in the blender and add a squeeze of fresh lemon to taste. I also like to add a little cinnamon.
    My favorite blends contain apples, plums, nectarines, pears and berries, but really anything goes. You can also mix it up a bit by using your blender to achieve different consistencies.
    - Lunch & Dinner
    For your main two meals its important to keep calories low but nutrition high. A vegetable puree soup is the answer. This will give you energy to get through the day and all the nutrients you need.
    Cut up your vegetables, add approximately one cup of vegetable stock, and cover on a low heat until the vegetables are soft. Now throw it in the blender and spice it up with a raw clove of garlic or jalapeño pepper (only a little as it's very spicy!). I also like to add cilantro and a little olive oil.
    I like to experiment with different vegetables for this soup. Great ideas are spinach and broccoli, collard greens, zucchini, onion, carrots and sweet potatoes. Beans also make a great addition. I like to use chickpeas but be sure they are organic.
    - Desserts & Snacks
    This diet can sometimes leave you feeling hungry (it wouldn't be a diet if it didn't!), so its important to have some filling snacks around for when you need a boost.
    Fruit smoothies are a great options for dessert or a snack between meals. You need to buy packs of frozen organic fruits from your supermarket. These lock all the goodness into the fruit and are very convenient. I actually find that frozen bananas taste much better in a smoothie than fresh ones so I peel ripe bananas and put them in a ziplock bag in the freezer.
    Just add ice and a little water, then blend away! I like blends of blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and banana. Its really up to you to find a few combinations that you love. Be creative!
    - Drinks
    Freshly squeezed juices are very detoxing and a great way to get some condensed nutrition into your body. Fresh juice is also packed full of enzymes which are fundamental in maintaining good health and preventing disease.
    Some ideas for recipes - try playing around with these super-healthy ingredients. Cucumbers, apples, carrot, ginger, garlic, beet and broccoli.
    Don't forget to drink Green Tea. This is so effective as a diet aid because it increases your metabolism and reduces your appetite. It has also been used for more than 4000 years in Chinese medicine, to cure ailments ranging from headaches to depression.

  24. QUESTION:
    How should I go about doing a 3-day semi-vegan detox?
    I'm looking to gain a substantial amount of weight in the long run, and I want to prep my body for that before I start packing in the calories. I know it sounds a little bit backwards, but I'm feeling a little heavy/bloated at the moment, so I want to kind of clear my system out before I re-start my normal diet.

    My goal is for 3500-4000 calories a day and I want to pack on about 15 or 20 pounds of mostly muscle. (I'm 5'8" 101 lbs) and my BF% is about 6.5%. I'm an lacto-ovo vegetarian-- No meat/chicken, or fish, but I do eat dairy products, eggs, and nuts/lentils.

    Are there any pre-set vegan detox plans out there that you've tried?
    Important clarification that friendofchip brought to mind: I've been a lacto-ovo vegetarian all my life, not a vegan-- my wording was a bit unclear there.

    What I had in mind when I said "semi-vegan" was cutting out non-whole wheat bread, pasta, and grains and limiting myself to fruits & veggies, fruit juices, milk and water.

    • ANSWER:
      This may not be of much help but I read a great detox plan that was vegan in the Crazy Sexy Diet book. Just go to chapters.com or amazon and look it up. It is mostly a liquids. I have yet to try it but am excited of the benefits of it.

      Congrats on the vegetarian lifestyle.
      It's very refreshing.

  25. QUESTION:
    Need some help with a diet plan that works with my work schedule?
    well, im at work for over 12 hours a day on a delivery route. im getting back into the gym next week. im doing a detox cuz ive been eating basically junk for the past year or so. so what im asking is what is a good diet and/or a simple foods to eat through out the day. im sitting around 20% body fat at 5' 7" and 173lbs. some one pls help with personal exp and links thanks guys.

    • ANSWER:
      Soup and smoothies are great
      They are low in calories high in fruit and veg and filling
      and also quick to drink

      lay off the carbs
      they are bloating and make you feel lethargic (and most of all high in calories!)
      excercise! the key word
      go to the gym but also take up a sport you can do at the weekend
      swim or walk or cycle- anything you enjoy

      good luck!
      :)

  26. QUESTION:
    i need to lose as much weight as possible in 5 days. ive heard about detox diets, any suggestions?
    i'm 5'3", 130 lbs with a really sluggish metabolism...i need a plan that i can stick to for the next few days

    • ANSWER:
      First off why do you ned to lose so much weight in such a little time? Secondly crash diets like this will help you lose the weight but then when you go back to eating your body will put the weight back on and more, also this type of dieting is hard on your body
      It is best for you to learn to take it off and keep it off through a healthy supplemental protein diet. I lost 65 lbs this way and kept it off now for over a year.

  27. QUESTION:
    does this sound like a good diet/workout plan?
    so tmw i'm starting a diet... i'm 15, 5'5 and in the 12O's.
    i was gonna water fast for the first 2O days starting tmw, i've done fasting before, mainly for detox. i'm expecting to lose 2O pounds/1 lb a day. & i've heard ppl say "oh it's not healthy, you could die!! well ... actually the human body can survive 9O days w/o food! & it is healthy as long as you keep it around less then 3O days. my goal weight is 9O lbs. & no i'm not looking for attention:) just anwsers since no one else seems to try to understand that yes i know i'm in "normal weight range" but i'm not happy & am sick of feeling self concious & trying to hide my body. anyways... the first 1O days of my fast i'll be working out 8-1Ox around 5hours those days. and 9-1Ox the next 1O days. after that i'll have "liquids only" for a week. & slowly have fruit & things like that. btw i'm vegan if it helps..

    Is Detox a good way to loose weight?
    Ok well I still have some time to fit into my bikini for this summer. I've been working out at the gym about 3-4 days a week, and it seems like I'm missing something. I need a good diet plan! I was reading something on Oprah's website and she is going for a Detox diet. I thought I'd give it a try! I'm asking you guys for advice cause I've never, "dieted" before and man do I need to start. I'm 5'8 and 170lbs, and for me thats over weight. I had my daughter 3 years ago, and I haven't been able to loose the weight. So I wanted to try this detox diet. I love fruits, vegetables, and I also thought about skipping meat products, and going for fish. What do you think? Please give me opinion, and any detox information that you might know about. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I suggest that you speak to your doctor and make sure that all blood work is fine before you skip some of the other meat. Fruits and vegetables are always a plus and fish and chicken too depending on how you cook it.

  31. QUESTION:
    Detox plan?
    I have been eating so much junk and drinking so much caffeine and alcohol lately, and I haven't been going to the gym as regularly as I normally do (5 times a week, 45 minutes of cardio and a couple days of weight training). I am trying to lose about 15-20 pounds and want to lose weight the healthy way, not by starving myself or going on some crash diet. I've done all that before and now it's time to do it the right way. Anyone know a good way to start? I am 20 years old and weigh about 140 lbs with 23% bodyfat, and I would like to get that down to around 17%. I have a terrible sweet tooth so anything that will curb that would be great! Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      A really good detox plan is the Isagenix fat and burn cleanse system. I lost a lot of weight with their 30-day cleanse its great. Its also endorsed by a lot of doctors too. For more in-depth information on Isagenix go to http://www.louisquezada.isagenix.com/

  32. QUESTION:
    Will a 40 day water diet clear my acne?
    hi I'm a 15 year old guy about 5'8 ft tall and about 140 pounds. I wanna clear my skin and detox my body and I'm planning on fasting for 40 days over the summer I fasted before for like 2 days I know it will be hard just wondering will my face clear of acne?

    • ANSWER:
      NO, do not fast for 40 days, very unhealthy for a 15 yr growing male and your face will probably not clear up and even if it did, your acne will be the least of your problems after your health goes in the gutter.
      See a dermatologist and find out why you have acne and be treated for it. I once had acne and the Dr did some kind of treatment right in the office and it started clearing up immediately and he gave me a list of foods to cut out and I learned my biggest problem was potato chips. I ate a lot of them - a lot of grease and salt and chocolate was havoc on my skin. I no longer eat chocolate at all and if I eat a lot of p.chips in one day, I still get a little acne the next day. Eat good natural fresh foods if you want to detox. There are some good detox products you can purchase to clean your body but none of them say to stop eating.
      One company, mostly Amish I believe has some of the best herbs in the world and detox products included. Nature's Sunshine. Look up on the web. You can order from the web. They are all natural and real high quality herbs. Great company. I've purchased their products for years. I clean my liver once a year (filter's all your poisons, toxins in your body) called Liver Cleanser and you may lose weight while taking it. The Amish Dr suggested I take 6 a day, 2 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon and 2 at night before bed for 2 - 3 weeks. There are 90 in a bottle so I do it for 15 days. I do their Can Sol diet once a year to clean the blood. It will make you feel like a new person and very energetic within a few days....check them out. Hope this helps a little

  33. QUESTION:
    Jogging 2 miles a day and "diet" to burn fat?
    I am 5 ft. 2 in. and i weigh about 110 lbs. I know i am not fat or overweight or anything, but i would like to be more toned and defined so i want to burn of some of my extra weight. So far i have been jogging 2 miles at least 3 times a week and plan on increasing it to at least 5 days a week. I also sometimes switch it up with a 2 mile sprint-walk interval exercise. i also do a 15 minute ab workout. I normally do not eat very healthily, but i have been cutting back on snacks, eating smaller portions and trying to incorporate more fresh, lean and natural foods into my diet. I am thinking of starting fresh with a detox by just drinking a lot of water for the first 3 days and actually stick to jogging everyday. i want to lose 2-3 inches around my waist and hips and lose love handles, but eventually have a stomach that you can't "pinch and inch". i know this will be a hard and long process but by doing these things, how long do you think it will take for me to see results?
    i'm 15 and i don't think my metabolism is very fast. if i don't work out i really have to watch what i eat and people in my family have rather slow metabolisms

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on your metabolism your age and many factors. Keep doing what you do but if you dont lose a single bit of weight in one week or two change your diet.

  34. QUESTION:
    is this a safe diet/detox?
    http://www.rewaj.com/health/the-lemon-diet-drop-a-jeans-size-in-7-days.html

    is it safe?
    will it work?
    will i keep it off?
    im planning on doing this over summer. for two weeks. or maybe just the one week.
    im 140 lbs and 5'4 18 years old. i want to get down to 120.

    what do i eat after im done detoxing so i don't gain weight back.

    • ANSWER:
      The lemon detox or master cleanse/starvation diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose a few pounds but when you start eating again you will probably gain more weight. You will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose around 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system.
      So you will lose weight but it does not change your size. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it?
      Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system. The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available.
      The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to burn muscle mass for fuel instead of the stored fat (metabolism). Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed.
      The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead.
      The liver does in fact get layered with fat when we become overweight.
      Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
      Spend your money in the produce department.
      Good luck.

  36. QUESTION:
    Is this diet a sensible one?
    I found this diet plan for a quick way to slim down.

    Is it legit...? Would it work? I would like to get into pilates/yoga and change my diet, so let me know what you think of this diet I found on a site:

    "Step 1
    Detox is the way to go. Cleanse the colon and help your liver. Your liver is your filter, you have to take care of this thing or your body will get stuck with fattening toxins

    Step 2
    To take care of your liver, I am going to list the foods you will only eat for one week. Mix them up, find recipes and get creative. But remember to stick to just these foods and remember to portion correctly

    - cabbage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, broccoli
    - parsley, kale, watercress, chard, cliantro, collards
    - orange or lemon, lime juice (no grapefruit!)
    - garlic, onions, eggs
    - artichoke, asparagus, beets, celery, whey
    - 1 time a day eat a serving (the size of the palm of your hand)of protein
    - olive oil or flaxseed oil

    Step 3
    For your Colon eat and use the following:

    - carrot, apple, pear, berries
    - powdered psyllium husks, milled or ground flaxseeds

    Step 4
    Drink Filtered water cut with Organic Cranberry juice

    Only drink that through out the day. And drink as much of it as you can to flush out the toxins (the more you drink the more you help get rid of cellulite)

    Step 5
    NO SUGAR, NO WHITES, NO ALCOHOL, NO CAFFEINE

    STICK TO ORGANIC AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE

    Step 6
    Stick to this diet and I promise the inches will start to melt off. Weight will follow. Your clothes will start to get big on you and you are going to feel AWESOME.

    You should do the cleansing diet once every month. I personally just try to eat these foods no matter what and all I drink is water and organic cranberry"

    I am not fat or overweight. I am wanting to get like...really slim though, so would this be a good diet for that? Or is it junk?

    • ANSWER:
      If you just want to get slim sure. However eating more protein will help you feel fuller for longer. When I needed to drop about 20 lbs I did this:
      Breakfast : Carb and protein breakfast. Quesh, Omelet and wheat toast, or a BLT on wheat toast were my favorites.
      Lunch: Salad with lots of veggies and some sun flower seeds or a small can of chicken with a vinaigrette or a reduced calorie dressing like Catalina was always good.
      Dinner: Eat light. A can of soup will do wonders.
      Snacks: celery with chunky peanut butter. (it has fewer calories then the smooth does.) Yogurt and Graham crackers, or one of the right bite packages of gold fish crackers, and of course fruit.
      Drink lots or water no matter what diet you chose. Also remember it's not the end of the world if you eat something not on your diet. Allowing your self to cheat a little helps you stay on track.
      Trust me I went from a size 18 to a size 12 this way. I'm going back on it too since I gained more weight recently so I can get down to a size 8-10. (I'm 5'10" so that's actually a fairly healthy size for me)

  38. QUESTION:
    I want to do the Master Cleanse to detox and lose weight for an event-How soon before the event should I stop?
    Yes, I know Master Cleanse is a cleanse/fast not a diet. Yes, I know the risks. I read a lot of reviews here http://www.fitnesstipsforlife.com/master-cleanse-detox-diet.html and am well aware that I may gain weight back. I do plan on starting an exercise regiment directly after my cleanse to combat fat gain, so I'm wondering if I should end a week before the event? I plan on cleansing for about 5-10 days.

    • ANSWER:
      You should ease out of the cleanse . It mostly takes a few day till your body will crave solid foods ans you should introduce the food back slowly.
      BTW when you are on the cleanse you can exercise (many people do), you should have enough energy. It is very important you stop expecting to gain the weight back. try to establish better, healthy eating habits after you are done.
      By you having thought of weight gain ,you are instructing your body to doing it. So re-frame your thoughts on that.
      Here is a good source of information on the topic:

  39. QUESTION:
    what to do after lemon detox?
    What should you do after you've completed the lemon detox? Like what foods should you eat and what should you drink.

    My mom's friend told me to be careful because I could put myself in shock if I'm not careful enough after the detox. I'm on the detox now. I plan on stopping in about 5-6 more days. But I need to know how I can careful/healthy, go back to a normal diet without hurting myself. Thanks in advance

    • ANSWER:
      The first day off, only consume liquid calories, ex: fruit juices, smoothies, water, etc. But not too many calories, because your body will just keep them and you will gain weight.
      The second day, only have vegetables and fruits.

      Gradually come back onto food.
      Be careful, and good luck.

  40. QUESTION:
    Feeling sooooo hungry?
    My hubby and I started doing a detox diet on Sunday. It's called the Wild Rose Herbal Detox. First day I had a really really bad headache (coming off caffeine and sugar, blah!). Yesterday I was really tired and a bit hungry, and today I feel like I'm starving. I plugged my info into fitday and it looks like I have enough calories. I don't know if I should allow myself to eat when I'm hungry, or if I should just ignore my body signals for a few days (I am overweight).

    Here is what I ate today:
    TUESDAY
    B: 1/2 cup brown rice, 1 chopped up pear, few drops of stevia
    S: 1/2 cup applesauce
    L: small portion of leftover elk roast, 1/2 potato, 5 steamed baby carrots
    S: hard boiled egg
    S: 1 rice cake with 1 tsp almond butter, cup of pepermint tea
    D: 1 small pollock fillet, 1/2 cup cauliflower, 1/4 cup beans, 1 cup salad with italian dressing
    S: celery

    I'm eating according to the booklet I got in the detox plan. Is it normal to be extremely hungry?

    • ANSWER:
      It seems like you are getting enough calories and of the right kind. My guess is that your body is just used to getting more (well, too much food if you are overweight). Your stomach will shrink, you just have to try your best to stick to your diet plan!

      Good luck.. I know this part sucks!

    rebuilding my metabolism...good idea or no?
    so...i'm pretty unhealthy. about 30 pounds overweight. eat way too much bread/pasta/baked goods, and i don't really work out on a regular basis, which is why i've gained all this weight. and because of my unhealthy habits, my metabolism has slowed down immensely.

    ***********************I DO NOT NEED DIET ADVICE. I REPEAT: I DO NOT NEED DIET OR DETOX ADVICE.***************************

    Physically, I can not do yoga. I can not get down on the floor to do crunches. I have back problems that prevent me from doing sit ups, push ups and crunches.

    I know walking is the best thing for me. I am walking outside my apartment complex for about 10-15 minutes a day. I know walking is the best thing.

    Bike riding: I do not own a bike. I am physically unable to haul it up and down to my 2nd floor apartment anyway. Swimming: I do not have access to a swimming pool. I also can not find a swim suit in my size.

    Gym/work out room: Yes, my complex has a fitness room with a treadmill and weights. However, I can not use it because the weight limit on the treadmill, exercise bike and free standing weights bench has a limit of 300 pounds. At 412 pounds, that means I'm 112 pounds to fat to even think about using it.

    I am physically unable to jump so jumping jacks are out. I can't even jump high enough to use a jump rope. Besides, if I jumped roped, I would have sound issues with my downstairs neighbors.

    I do not have a YMCA in my area. I would have to drive 15 miles out of my way, and I can not afford the gas to drive 30 miles out of my way 3-5 times a week. It is not because I'm lazy. I want to go. But with gas prices being so high, I can't afford to drive. Public buses are out of the question because the bus trip just to get there would take two hours. (I already checked) and I'm not sitting on a bus/waiting for one for 3 1/2 to 4 hours a day.

    I am looking for cheap or free workout equipment and easy workouts to do at home with little or no equipment needed. I'm willing to buy weights and workout videos that I can do at home. What are some good suggestions?

    With the diet thing, I'm already following the diet plan my Dr. and I worked out and am eating a heart healthy/low sodium diet. I've cut out junk food and other crap. I'm eating healthy, but not skimping or depriving myself.

  48. QUESTION:
    Important question about "Master Cleanse Lemonade detox"?
    Okay, Im not going on the "Master cleanse" diet to lose weight but I have heard that the lemonade works for clearing your body of toxins. However, I have a question. I planned to do the diet for 5 days to clear my body, but when I am done with the detox does this mean I have to stop smoking ( I smoke cigarettes and go to hookah bars sometimes). I am not going to smoke while I am detoxing, but I want to smoke when I get done with the detox. Will I be defeating the purpose of detoxing? Will the smoke bring back ALL of the toxins I cleared my body of or will the cleanse at least clear some of the toxins? Just asking because I told my friend that "I cant wait until this is over to have a cig" and he said everything you got rid of will instantly come back if you smoke.... please enlighten me

    • ANSWER:
      It's no good worrying about cleansing and continuing to smoke cigarettes. The amount of time nicotine stays in your body depends on how much nicotine is in your system.

      "The time it takes before the health risks of the ex-smoker are equal to those of someone who has never smoked depends on the amount and time that someone has smoked. After a couple of years, the increased risk of heart and lung diseases is reduced considerably. The first years after quitting show the biggest decrease of these risks. And after 10 to 15 years, the ex-smoker is as healthy again as someone who has never smoked. Within several years, the risk of heart and coronary diseases are equal to that of non-smokers. Also, the risk of lung disease decreases relatively quickly. The risk of lung cancer needs 10 to 15 years to decrease to the risk of someone who never smoked. But also in this case the biggest decrease of the risk happens in the first years after quitting."

      No Master Cleanse is going to do that for you. Purposefully irritating your gastro-intestinal tract is never a good idea, but salt water flushing actually removes healthy, helpful bacteria from the lining of your colon. By engaging in this practice for an extended period of time, you are effectively wiping out one of your first lines of defense against infection and sickness.

      You would be better off and suffering less if you drank lots of water ans quit smoking.

  49. QUESTION:
    Please help me, im on the edge of giving up, its a long question but i really need your help, please.?
    I have been trying to diet for over a year now and its getting to the point where its leading me to depression, and i have done everything like starving myself, 'detox' crash dieting ...everything accept a healthy weight loss diet because i wanted to lose loads of weight straight away(bad idea, yes i know) and in the long run i ended up putting on a stone and a half extra weight than what i started off with a year ago

    But now i have finally got my head round the fact that the only way i am going to lose weight is by healthy eating, a balanced diet, exercise & patience... even though i have been attempting to lose weight for over a year i have done a lot of research on dieting and actually know a lot about it and how to do it...sort of, even though i never listened to the advice myself until now...

    I have finally come up with the perfect balanced diet that SUITS ME!!!!...and all the food in it is something i enjoy and is healthy which i think is key to a good diet and i have stuck to it for about 10 days now (which is amazing for me!!!) and i have lost 5lbs (which is even more amazing for me!!!!)

    This is what my diet plan is:

    Breakfast (alternate every 3 days)
    - Cherrios with skimmed milk
    - Good for you jam and extra light butter on 2 wholemeal toast
    - Raspberry oatmeal made with skimmed milk
    - All with a glass of orange juice and food supplements and vitamins

    Through the day snacks ( Every 3 hours roughly)
    - Apple
    - Banana
    - Shape yoghurt
    - Pack of Walkers baked sour cream and onion (low cal and low fat)

    Meals (changes daily)

    Mon + Thurs - Piece of coley fish, boiled rice and peas
    Tues + Fri - Tin of lentil soup and 5 crackerbread
    Wed - Beans on extra light butter wholemeal toast
    Sat - 2 fishcakes, good for you chips, peas and a small amount of ketchup
    Sun - Good for you frozen ready meal cooked dinner

    In the evening
    - Options hot chocolate (the low cal one) & a good for you bakewell slice

    And I drink plenty of water through the day
    And have the occasional cup of tea with skimmed milk and sweeteners
    And to beat cravings I have some sugar free gum when needed
    All the 'good for you' things i have mentioned are low in calories and fat

    All this usually averages from 1100 calories - 1300 calories daily
    (which is a hell of a lot more than what i use to try and diet on, and i never feel hungry and i have energy which is a first)

    Exercise -
    I either do a Kathy smith ultimate workout video (lots of good toning and stretching techniques plus cardio)
    Or I do about an hour on the cross trainer
    (love both and im seeing small results already)
    I do exercise at least 5-7 days a week

    Do you think this is a good diet and exercise plan for me to stick to lose the weight i have been trying to lose for over a year, and get myself healthy, happy and fit?????

    I am 17 - female - 5 foot 2 and at the moment I weigh 125lbs/8stone13 and my goal is 108lbs/7stone10

    And don’t tell me i don’t need to loose weight, i know im in the healthy range for my height, age ect but im not comfortable with myself okay so please do not bring that up or criticize me for wanting to lose weight, just because the internet says im in a healthy weight range does not mean i feel happy with it and feel and look good, i just want to lose that extra fat that keeps me down, tone up and give myself that confidence boost i really need! okay.

    Plus i know the diet is not 100% absolutely perfect, but to me its good enough and seems to be working and keeping me happy.

    After i lose the weight (fingers crossed) i want to start eating more healthy food, learn to cook and make healthy meals and snacks, and look after myself in general as well as try different types of exercise

    What i need your help in is... i just want to know what your opinion on he whole thing is... do you have and tips or ideas for me to make this diet a bit better, or if there are things that are really wrong with it (bare in mind i have created this to suit me and my likes)
    Is there any advice on me to boost my confidence and feel positive and stick to this diet for even longer and make sure i don’t give up?
    Any advice, tips, opinions etc would be gratefully received

    Thanks for taking the time to read and help :)

      The key to a good weight loss program is Diet and Exercise, Even though your diet may have a few issues ,The important thing is "your making a sound effort to make healthy choice's and as long as your satisfied with the food's your eating and still managing to lose weight , your doing fine.Try not to lose more than 1 to 2 pound's a week , This rate is healthy.People who try to lose more almost Always regain the weight rapidly. They also risk health problems such as gallstones and chemical imbalances. Think of your decision to lose weight as a turning point in your life.

    I'm a female 5'3", 139 lbs. I started at 153 lbs when I had my baby. I went down 10 lbs, so 143 lbs, when I did the South Beach diet. However, I didn't keep up that diet because I felt it was way too restrictive. I binged on food for a while, and went up to 148 lbs. So I just did some sensible eating and worked out more intensely since January.

    I'm now at 6 workouts a week, doing cardio (lots of intervals, different machines) and weights for a total of 1h30 per day. However, I felt like I have reached a plateau, because the scale wouldn't budge from 143 lbs, it stayed there for about 5 weeks.

    Now, I'm doing a modified version of the Lemonade diet, which is basically a detox plan that you do for 11 days. You eat 700 calories a day, but it's very specific ingredients that detox your body, it's all natural. It's great in terms of weight loss, I've lost 4 lbs so far and I feel good.

    However, I'm afraid that at the end of the 11 days, I'll gain back all the weight I lost. So my question is - are 11 days enough to make your body go into starvation mode? Is it worth me doing this "detox" plan, or am I risking going into starvation mode and going against what I want to do?

    Please, only serious answers, no rude people - I have a solid knowledge base in nutrition and fitness, so I would appreciate if people with valuable knowledge would answer this question.
    Thanks!
    BabeHeart – thanks for your suggestion of replacing cardio with weights, I’ve started doing that, so we’ll see what the results are.
    Star – I thought it was muscle, but I also measure myself, and I wasn’t losing any inches . I have never counted calories before, but so I'll do that now.
    Astrologer – You don’t even know what the lemonade diet is, I don’t know why you’re assuming that I’m drinking lemonade. I did say I was EATING things on the diet, not just drinking. Second, I didn’t say I have nutrition expertise, I said I had a solid knowledge base. I never said either that I have done “diets that you know after you go off them you are just going to gain back the weight”. Also, I don’t know if you read my post, but I wrote that I was careful with what I ate and worked out 6 days a week, and that even then, I have been plateauing. So your advice of eating a sensible diet and working out really doesn’t help. Next time, read before answering - condescendance is not helpful.

    • ANSWER:
      Chances are high you will regain the weight. 700 cals a day is much too low, and your body will react to that almost immediately...skipping meals or dropping calories too low causes your metabolism to slow down to save energy, thus you burn fewer calories.

      Also, with calorie level that low, working out will be difficult as you simply aren't giving your body enough fuel to perform.

      South Beach is a decent, fairly well balanced diet...only the first 2 wks are very restrictive. However, a person who can balance their own diet well doesn't need a kick-start from a plan such as SB.

      Doing anything repeatedly for a while can cause your body to stop reacting much to it...even exercise. Drop back on the cardio and replace it with strength training. More muscle burns more calories and it's easy to overdo cardio and stop seeing results (even though you religiously workout).

      Also,you can change your eating without dropping so low as to be unhealthy...keep it above 1200 cals/day and the more exercise you do, the more fuel you need to give your body (just make sure it's the right kind...plenty of protein and carbs for energy and muscle building).

      I personally wouldn't waste time on any gimmicks like the detox. They often sound good on paper, but in practice results are a let down (or after effects aren't worth it).


5 5 5 Diet Plan

Have you just learned you have diabetes and your doctor recommends you lose weight? Finding an easy diabetic weight loss diet may seem difficult.

Trying to find a good weight loss program is hard enough. It may also seem an impossible task to find a good diabetic weight loss diet. This is where we may help out, by explaining 5 different diabetic weight loss diet options.

5 Diabetic Weight Loss Options:

Diabetic Food Exchange Diet: This diabetic diet plan is one of the main eating plans that doctors prescribe to people with diabetes. It may be confusing at first, yet once you understand its concept, you will find that it has two positive outcomes. It will help you lose weight and maintain your blood sugar.

The diabetic food exchange diet groups similar foods together. Each group lists certain foods that may be eaten and the exact portion that may be eaten. Measuring the food portions exactly is very important on this diabetic weight loss diet. It is also important to eat on a very regular schedule.

Diabetic Food Pyramid: This diabetic food plan is easier to understand and implement than the diabetic food exchange diet. With this plan the foods are separated into different groups. The food group that allows the most servings is the base of the food pyramid. The next set of groups of foods follow up the pyramid, with the top of the pyramid representing the food group allowed the list.

    What are the basics for starting the 5 factor diet eating plan?
    im currently waiting for my book to get here but until then id like to start eating as described in the 5 factor diet book. can anyone tell me how to go about doing so?

    • ANSWER:
      "The key principle of the 5-Factor Diet is to eat five meal each day that must be made up of five components: a lean protein, a complex carbohydrate, fiber, a "good" fat, and a sugar-free drink. The food choices Pasternak recommends are based on the Glycemic Index (GI), which rates foods according to their effect on blood sugar levels. An example of a 5-Factor meal would be baked chicken, mixed vegetables with a drizzle of olive oil, a half cup of lentils, and a glass of sparkling water."

    american heart association diet 5 day diet plan .?

    • ANSWER:
      I found this,

      Phony American Heart Association Diet

      AHA Recommendation
      The public should be aware that there are diets that purport to be from the American Heart Association that are not. The true American Heart Association eating plan gives recommended daily servings from various food categories, not specific foods. It’s a nutritionally adequate eating plan that’s intended for a lifetime of use. It can help healthy people lose excess weight or maintain a proper body weight, but its goal is not quick weight loss. The menus provided in the recently released American Heart Association No-Fad Diet book are also for healthy, sustainable weight loss over time.
      Background
      A diet supposedly from our organization has been cited several times across the United States and in Australia.

      The phony diet describes a three-day menu, supposedly prescribed by the American Heart Association or by the "Heart Association." It includes vanilla ice cream, hot dogs, eggs and cheddar cheese. The diet promises a 10-pound weight loss in three days.

      The bogus diet has also been cited as the Spokane Heart Diet, the Cleveland Clinic Diet and the Miami Heart Institute Diet. The poorly typed and photocopied phony diet has also been offered by mail for per copy.

      The phony diet is not from our organization. For years, we have recommended that Americans cut saturated fat and cholesterol by limiting egg yolks, whole-milk dairy products such as ice cream and cheddar cheese, and luncheon meats. From time to time other fad diets emphasizing other foods have been falsely attributed to the American Heart Association.

  11. QUESTION:
    I need a 5/6 meals a day diet plan, any ideas??
    I need to lose some weight, not a lot as I'm not fat, just don't feel nice about myself. Does the 5 a day diet work??? Can you give me some tips on a meal plan? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I use the "Grazing Diet", instead of the normal three meals a day no snacking plan (which is very hard to stick to). On the grazing diet you eat six small meals a day . This could be a plate of salad with a slice of chicken/ham/turkey, a mixed fruit salad or may a sandwich on wholemeal bread, you are also allowed a couple of small snacks. I have found this a much better plan as eating every couple of hours stops your blood sugar dipping which results in slowing down your metabolism, which is the opposite of what you want to do. Also I picked up quite a good tip that supermodel Gisele Bundchen gave in a recent edition of Heat. If you sprinkle a small amount of Cayene Pepper onto your salads etc the heat in the pepper will help boost your metabolism. Best of Luck!!

  12. QUESTION:
    What's the best eating plan or diet plan for a 5 mile run?
    I've been running 2 miles a day. Last time I tried 4 but I took a five minute break half way. So what's the best way to gain energy while trying to lose weight? I'm going on a 700 calorie diet and running. What should do? Don't give me links write it out.

    • ANSWER:
      It’s hard to exercise just eating enough to cover your BMR (as to not get a lower metabolism) so you can use exercising to lose body fat but on a 700 calorie diet, you’re asking for trouble, not only sending your metabolism down the drain but not having enough energy to exercise properly.

      Wear a heart monitor so you can stay in your THR zone (Target Heart Rate) zone and never feel exhausted or out of breath as you should not have to take a five minute break half way (if you do, you could feel nausea or dizziness). Choose the Aerobic Zone for weight loss, 70 to 79% of your MHR (Maximum Heart Rate).

      Your MHR is 220 minus your age in 80% of cases...you might have a naturally lower or higher RHR (resting Heart Rate) so just adjust your heart monitor accordingly to how you feel. If you cannot say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious without having to take a couple of breaths...you need to slow down and walk for a minute.

      Warm up for 5 to 10 minutes until you get up in your zone (walking faster and faster until you reach your zone and start jogging), then stay in your zone, using walking to go back down when your heart beats get too fast because at 80%, you get into the Anaerobic Threshold Zone, when fat burning shuts down (it’s a good zone to improve cardiovascular health but not to lose body fat).

      Once you get down and under 70%, your watch beeps so you can resume jogging until it beeps again (when you reach 80%) so you start walking again, then your watch beeps again when you can resume jogging unless you feel “spent” and just keep walking slower and slower for 5 to 10 minutes to cool down (going back down through the Temperate Zone, 60-69%, the Healthy Heart Zone, 50-59%, and back down to you RHR).

      You should eat enough calories to cover your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) or your body will adapt to a low caloric intake and lower your metabolism, making it very hard for you to use your body fat. And then, as soon as you would eventually start eating normally again, you would make body fat very easily, because you would have a lower metabolism and therefore regain all the weight you lost and keep going up, unless you exercise A LOT. Also, if you’re younger than 21, you need to eat more when having a growth spurt so you don’t stunt your growth (you get ravenous).

      Women’s BMR:
      655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) - minus (4.7 x age in years)

      Try to find 2 or 3 different aerobic activities to challenge your body in different ways (I walk/jog, bike and swim) as just walking/jogging would mostly be a lower body exercise.

      AND, most importantly, weigh train to gain muscle mass which is the weight loss miracle. As a woman, you only need to do calisthenics and use small weights. With more muscle mass, you look better, thinner, toner but also you are stronger so your aerobics get easier and more efficient and you burn more calories while exercising.
      Also carrying grocery bags/going up the stairs or anything else is so much easier when you have some muscles in your arms/legs.

      Once you get more muscle mass, your metabolism goes up on a 24/7 basis. Each pound of added muscle mass needs 35/50 calories a day to maintain (not even counting the calories for the exercise). It’s 12 to 18 thousand calories a year…it’s 3 to 5 pounds of body fat a year that you would either lose or at least not gain (if you eat too much). And that is just for one pound of extra added muscle mass.
      Also on those days when you’re resting and feeling a little soreness because your muscles are repairing stronger, you can rest assure that you’re burning a lot of calories even if you’re not moving.

      “What's the best eating plan or diet plan for a 5 mile run?” you asked.
      First and foremost, eat enough to cover your BMR and have a good high carbs meal about 2 hours prior to your run, so by then your stomach is empty (you cannot run if your stomach is still processing food) but you have a good high blood sugar level for energy.

      Sip water (like the equivalent of a cup/glass/8oz every 15/20 minutes...that should be automatic, I LOVE to drink water while exercising, otherwise, I’m not a big fan of water) and add some sugar to your water to replenish on the way if you need more energy.

      If you exercise more than 2 hours, then you’ll need sport drinks that contain electrolytes. Always use sport drinks (or Gatorade) when drinking more than 8 cups of liquid in a 2 hours window. Water intoxication (stupid people doing water drinking contests and dying) happens when you deplete the electrolytes and then your brain goes berserk.

    • ANSWER:
      yes you can lose 9 lbs (5 kg) in a month. you'd probably hit 30+ if you stick to that. i would add a bit more protein. all carbs and no protein is going to kill your metabolism. however, it's gonna be a lot harder if you expect to keep it off.

      look at your calorie intake and you need to cut out about 750 calories a day

    Good diet plan for a 5 foot 2 inches?
    Hello! So, I'm 13 and I'm 5"2 and I weight about 130-134. I need a good diet plan! I want to get a flatter stomach by the summer. Thanks! Also, how do you do crunches? Do they help you get a flatter stomach? What other exercise does(get a flatter stomach)? Thanks again!

    • ANSWER:
      The trick, no ab exercises they only build muscle under the fat.
      Run or jog for about 30 min. a day. When you have a flat stomach
      do crunches to get a six pack. Also eat less. Set a goal like do
      not eat after 5:30 pm or something.
      To do crunches you lay down and bend your knees toward you but
      keep your feet on the ground. Put your hands on your chest and
      lean forward but not all the way, just enough to squeeze your
      muscles together.
      Good luck and i hope this helps!

  18. QUESTION:
    Diet plan to lose 5 pounds per week?
    I am extremely overweight and I would like to lose weight fast yet healthy. Is there a weight loss plan and also exercise plan I can go by? Any suggestions? Please, be as blunt as possible. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Well I think you can do it slowly and healthy enough by eating prepackaged dietary food programs such as Healthy Choice; Lean Cuisine right from your supermarket. The meals are loaded with your daily needs and you can continue with your moderate exercise programs, if any, but in the least get out and walk. Each meal plan consists of about 300-400 calories...add a daily vitamin and you'll be on your way.
      The new HCG Platinum is really fast with garanteed losses of about 1lb/day. This is really hard in the beginning but it gets easy in about a week to achieve. This actually works! With this, it's not optimal to be on a heavy excersize program but look it up...read the many reviews (reviews appear to be edited though so I'm a bit weary of all that I read).

      Choosing an excersize program needs to be something you choose on your very own because, in the very least, you have to like it and enjoy the new lifestyle. The more weight you loose; the more energy you get; the more sculpted your body gets in a matter of time (several months) so you have to have your targets firmly in place in your mind. My suggestion is that you get out and start walking and farther every day. Purchase a couple dumbells from your nearby sporting goods store or just order online. You only need a maximum 40lbs (20lbs each bar in bell increments).

      Get started, get going!

  19. QUESTION:
    please give me your advice...How is this diet plan for today? 5 small meals?
    I'm 5'5 and 130 lbs and attempting to lose 10-15 lbs. I'm trying to follow the suggestions of having 5 smaller meals rather than starving or eating a couple large meals. This is my meal plan for 4 meals at work, and my 5th at home tonight..

    !st Grapenuts cereal and milk

    2nd 5 celery sticks with peanut butter

    3rd 160 cal. Healthy Choice meal of baked chicken, mashed potatos, carrots and green beans.

    4th Crackers with Light Laughing Cow Cheese

    5th 2 small soft tacos with lean ground beef, lettuce, and a tiny bit of cheese (need to eat dinner with my boyfriend so I'm at least ommitting sour cream and cutting down on the cheese, 2 of my weaknesses)

    How does this sound? After dinner I will be working out on my eliptical for 45-60 min and burning 500 calories or more.

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like your off to a great start! One thing I would suggest, is eating more protein in your breakfast, maybe getting in some eggs or egg whites? Breakfast should be your biggest meal of the day, and they should be smallest by dinner and dessert (or after dinner snack). Other things you can do, is make sure your using wheat tortilla's or even those low carb ones, and use ground turkey instead of ground beef (1000 times healthier for you!), that's great that your cutting back on weaknesses like cheese and sour cream - baby steps! You don't want to deprive yourself completley of your favorite foods, so make sure you get them in sometimes otherwise you end up binging on them!
      Also remember the eliptical and other machines that tell you the number of calories you burn is usually set to a random age, weight and gender so may not be accurate unless you enter your informaiton in (weight, height, age and sex) then still may be a little off, the more out of shape you are, the more you burn, the more in shape you are, the less calories you burn!
      Good luck, hope this helps!!!

  20. QUESTION:
    Diet plans, 5-9 pounds a week?

    Lunch-an orange, or other fruits, besides bananas
    Snacks during the day- all veggies, or one of those small baby bell cheeses
    Dinner-a salad with a slice of grilled chucked and a small side of lite zest italian dressing.
    I'd be eating this and exercising 4-5 times a week

    What is a good realistic diet plan for a 5'2 female, 135. Goal weight 120-125?
    I would like to know if anyone could help me make a diet plan- I am a runner... and musculer...
    So i guess I would like to know how long i should run/ jog.. calorie intake.. and how long it will take... what foods i should eat...

    • ANSWER:
      The best advice I can give is that you have to work with what you're already eating. Diets that drastically change your eating habits overnight are doomed to fail because your body is accustomed to certain foods and will crave them if you suddenly stop eating them. Write down everything you are eating and drinking, after one week take a look to see where you can make improvements by substituting unhealthy choices for healthier options or by eliminating the unhealthy food altogether. It is a slow process but if you stick with it you will reach your goal. My wife has lost over 100lbs doing this.

  23. QUESTION:
    How many sizes can I expect to lose within 4 to 5 months on a diet and exercise plan, if I really stick to it?
    I have been on a diet for over a year now, and have lost close to 70 pounds, and I am needing to lose at least another 45 to 50 pounds, and my weight loss is at a stand still, I have hit a major plateua, and I am exercising, but I want to reach my full potential to really be physically fit and look & feel great. I am doing an indoor walking routine 10 min, 3 times a day at least 5 days a week, and I am doing Urban Rebounding 20 minutes a day 3 days a week, plus lifting hand weights, I do a 10 minute routine with that at least 3 days a week. What more must I do to achieve my fitness goals to really get my body in tip top shape? How long will it take to reach my fitness goals if I keep working hard and dilligently at it and how many sizes can I expect to drop within 4 to 5 months? Is there any way I can acheive my goal within this time frame, I'm between a size 14 & 12 now, and would like to get to a size 8. My problem area is the lower half of my body. What kind of game plan do I need?

    • ANSWER:
      Congratulations on your 70 lb weight loss. I would recommend changing your workout to 3 days weight training and 3 days cardio training. On the days that you weight train, start out with 10 minutes of cardio just to warm your muscles up. For example on Mon, Wed, Fri do weight training and Tue, Thur, Sat do 30 minutes of cardio. Rest on Sunday. I would also recommend adding squats and lunges to your leg routine. Squats are the greatest overall work out and will take care of that lower half you're concerned about. Healthy weight loss is about 2 lbs a week which is 8 lbs a month. In 4 months thats 32 lbs. Also, don't be as concerned with weight as much as body fat percentage. Have a trained professional measure your body fat so that you'll know where you stand. Eat 5 small meals a day with plenty of protein and drink 6-8 glasses of water a day. Your body will actually hold extra water if your not drinking enough of it as a self defense against dehydration. Try to stay away from fried foods and high sugar foods and drinks. Your'e diet is 60% of the battle. Good luck.

  24. QUESTION:
    i need a healthy 6-meal diet plan to help me lose 5-10 lbs soon?
    16 year old female, 125 lbs, 5'5 is my height. i wanna get between 115-120 lbs. i want to lose ATLEAST 5 lbs soon!!! i used to weight 140 lbs, i lost 15 lbs by jogging on the treadmill, eating 3 meals a day.

    now my plan is to jump-rope for 45 min before breakfast, and again for 30 min in the afternoon. i think i will have to go on a 6-meal diet plan, bcuz these last 5-10 lbs are not coming off in any way!!!

    plz give me an example of a few 6-meal a day diet plans!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Eat what you were eating before, just spread it out across 6 small meals...what you eat when trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight shouldn't change no matter how many meals you choose to eat. Keep it healthy and go for smaller portions than before so your calories will be spread out (make sure you consume at least 1200 cals/day).

      Good luck!

  25. QUESTION:
    can any one help me find a simple to follow diet plan im 26 5'5 ish 13stone cycle to work 4mile total a day?
    i just want something easy to follow with normal food

    • ANSWER:
      Every answer you've received so far is spam, it's so annoying. Anywho the definition of diet is your day to day eating habits over a long period of time so don't do one of those stupid crash diets. The best diet is one you can stick at for ever, so basically everything in moderation, mostly fruits, veg, low fat, 40% carbs ect. and you can have a treat once in a while.

    • ANSWER:
      This is what the Toronto Star had to say about it..

      Creative combos of healthy foods would high-five a nod to portion control

      Mar 16, 2007 04:30 AM
      Megan Ogilvie
      Health Reporter

      DIET: The 5-Factor Diet (Meredith Books; .95)

      CREATOR: Harley Pasternak

      CREDENTIALS: A University of Toronto master's degree in exercise physiology and nutritional sciences.

      CELEBRITY EDGE: Pasternak has worked with a near endless list of celebs, including Halle Berry, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Eva Mendes, Mandy Moore, Orlando Bloom, Benjamin Bratt, Rachel Weisz, and Jane Fonda.

      CLAIM: This is supposed to be a simple, yet comprehensive, stand-alone nutritional program that gets quick and lasting results. Dieters are told they will lose weight, get fit and gain more energy following the 5-Factor Diet and exercise plans. Pasternak promises his revolutionary diet will be "the last diet book you'll ever need" and points to the hot Hollywood bodies he's helped shape for proof.

      PROGRAM: It's all about the number 5. Pasternak wants dieters to commit to five short workouts a week and follow a five-week diet made up of five meals a day. Each meal and snack must contain a food from each of the five food categories: a protein, a low or moderate glycemic carbohydrate, a fibre, a healthy fat and a sugar-free beverage. Each recipe only requires five key ingredients and takes only five minutes to prep.

      SIDE NOTES: Pasternak claims dieters can follow his eating plan even while dining out. That's why, he writes, his musician clients love his diet. "The 5-Factor Diet saved me on tour," writes Kanye West in the book. "I can't believe there is healthy food that tastes this good. I've never been in better shape!"

      At a Jamaican restaurant? Pasternak suggests the jerk chicken with rice and beans.

      A hankering for Chinese? Order black-bean and shrimp stir-fry.

      Walk into a cantina? Ask for chicken fajitas.

      ALLOWED: There are 25 "5-Factor Must-Have Foods," which include egg whites, seafood, beans, vegetables, salsa, mustard, jerky, no-flour crackers, water and sugar-free juice.

      PROHIBITED: Nothing. But Pasternak steers people away from all foods made with refined flour and added sugar.

      EXPERT OPINION: "I thought he went a bit overboard with the 5-factors," says Toronto registered dietitian Susan Finkelstein. "It's a good idea to have something that is quick and easy to remember, but I found that it got confusing."

      This diet is supposed to be based on lifestyle changes, rather than on fads. And Finkelstein says Pasternak does do a good job of emphasizing healthy foods, such as whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, healthy fats and lots of fruits and vegetables.

      "I found the recipes at the end of the book were simple and creative and easy-to-prepare," she says. "He wasn't afraid to use convenience items like frozen vegetables and canned beans."

      But, she adds, there is little talk of portion control, one of the most important components of healthy weight loss. And she has concerns that the diet will be hard to stick with over the long term, despite a "cheat" day once a week.

      Some of Pasternak's favourite foods, such as meat jerky as a snack food, can be high in sodium, cautions Finkelstein, who says this could be a concern for people who need to watch their sodium intake.

      EXPERT VERDICT: "I wouldn't recommend this book for weight loss because there is no talk of portion control."

      OUR VERDICT: Can't believe the 5-factors work outside of Hollywood – and beyond the close watch of Harley Pasternak.

    What do you think of this 5 meal a day diet plan?
    http://i103.photobucket.com/albums/m121/redman_08_2006/plan.jpg

    Please help! Is that good or do I need to modify it?

    • ANSWER:
      1. It depends on the cereal, go for whole grains and avoid added sugar. Honey is OK though.
      2. Sun Chips aren't terribly healthy, so I would consider whether or not you want them every day.
      3. Ramen isn't healthy either, as it contains sodium, MSG and fat... So I would avoid having that every day as well.

    I AM 18 5'0 220LB.. AND I NEED HELP I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO LOSE THE WEIGHT BUT I ALWAYS FAIL..DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ADVICE?

    • ANSWER:
      I was on weight watchers with my mom and we both lost weight! the thing is about weight watchers is:

      1) There are meeting and weigh-ins. If you're not comfortable with that, there's the thing online at their website that you can do it at instead

      2) Not only is it good for losing weight and eating right, but it's also teaching how to exercise, feel good about yourself, if you get off of it, you can jump back on, and it teaches good discipline about writing things down of what you eat every day

      Again, it's all about what fits you and how much work will be put in with a good attitude. with whatever diet or lifestyle you choose, always do it with an open mind and a smiling face! good luck on a diet! :D

  30. QUESTION:
    Can you please give me a strict diet plan to lose 5 pounds in 2 weeks?
    I'm on a time crunch.

    • ANSWER:
      Man, you can lose 5 pounds in a week if you've got the willpower. Just drink a V8, or have a Slim Fast, and eat a salad or couple pieces of toast twice a day and don't eat anything else.

      Of course, losing that weight is less genuine; you're just losing some water weight and muscle tissue. But if you have to lose that imperceptible 5 lbs in two weeks, then I guess that's the way to do it.

      I mean, heck, you could try limiting your caloric intake by 500 from what it is currently and exercising for 20 minutes every day. Who knows? That might make you lose the weight too and you'll get healthier in the process. *gasp!*

      Good luck.

    help with diet plan... How can i fit 5 meals and lose fat... while gaining muscle??
    ok you see i have a pretty good diet plan especialy for a 14 year old!! ok well i am 126 pounds (lost 5) and 5'2 in height. I usually wake up around 5:30 to 6:00 and eat breakfast and do muh stuff before school....getting to school around 7:30.... well I don't have lunch till 11:08 and i usually eat a small lunch.... today i am eating a veggie burger with water or gatorade. Also, we get out of school around 2:50. But i have barely any time to eat I usually try to fit in a granola bare or something while getting dressed for soccer practice (which starts at 3:15) I don't get out till 5:15 and don't get home till 6:00... which is when i eat dinner and do homework. Plz help me i need some food ideas to either sneak in class and eat quickly before soccer... or a new idea. HElp plz??
    p.s. i am a vegetarian

    • ANSWER:
      3 meals and 2 shakes would be great. Don't drink milk or Gatorade with meals, separate them and count them as shakes. Generally milk with a meal is to many calories, water is better and important anyways.
      Eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner and then in between drink a glass of milk, protein shake, soy drink, or gatorade. Others snacks could be fruits, veggies, protein bars. You eat these with a drink. Nuts are extremely healthy and while some people complain that they are higher in fats they need to realize these are good fats that help you lose fat and gain muscle.

      Don't skip meals or let your body go hungry because it will start to store fat and burn muscle.

      I also drink oatmeal with my protein powder when I'm really in a hurry but its gross

      p.s. alot of young female veggies are low in iron, you should look into that to make sure

Thanks you sooooo much guys!!!!!!!!!!!! please no rude ccomments:( sorry if i sound a little mean up there ^^^^. but please answer!!! thanks guyss:) have a ggreat day!!!!!! also best answer 10 points:D

    • ANSWER:
      Start by lowering your calorie intake to 800-1000 calories a day. You'll need to keep a log of your food intake to get an idea of your eating habits. Next, you need to add cardio to your day. If you are unable to run, jog or power walk. If you have access to a gym use the treadmill on the highest incline and use the speed of 4.2 or 4.3 mph. Do that incline and speed for 60-90 minutes and you can burn close to 1,000 calories. Therefore, if you are able to diet and workout daily, you'll lose weight in no time.

  36. QUESTION:
    is this a good diet plan to lose about 5 pounds in 8 days?
    breakfast- oatmeal
    lunch- tuna salad with no dressing
    dinner-grilled salmon

    im going to exercise and eat fruits and veggies... i know its not healthy but im going back to school in 8 days and ive gained some weight.

    • ANSWER:
      The main problem with what you have here is no variety you will definitely cheat if thats all you eat for 8 days especially come the weekend.

      breakfast - oatmeal or eggwhite omelettes or fat free cottage cheese and pineapples

      Lunch- Turkey roll ups (just Turkey rolled in to a log you can add a lil cheese) or crab meat with lemon juice or low carb wraps without cheese and stick to cold cuts and veggies

      dinner- salmon is great also try soy stuff and chicken with salsa. salsa is fantastic for you .

      stay busy and limit your snacks to plain celery and carrotts... if you have fruits only in the morning the sugars will become fat overnight. and stick to ice water... and try to get a friend to diet/ work out with you so you can have someone to lean on. good luck. PS look in mens health for recipes... I know your a girl but womens health recipes are more complicated and men's health ones usually take less time to cook too.

    best diet plan for 5'1" & 71 kg female 31 yrs take in the morning,afternoon& night?

    • ANSWER:

  38. QUESTION:
    5 day diet?
    I was told of this diet that have listed below. Does anyone know if it works?

    here is the 5-day diet that is supposed to be repeated twice after the first five days, for a total of 15 days. After that, you should eat carefully, and every Monday after the initial diet is supposed to be diet day: breakfast: lemonade made from one lemon and water (no sugar); lunch: 1 apple, 1 melba toast, dinner: 1 tomato, one hard-boiled egg, 1 melba. All food on the diet is supposed to be eaten in the order given, not combined, and nothing skipped.
    For the 5-day plan:
    breakfast every day: 1 orange, 1 melba toast, coffee or tea (no sugar)
    Day One lunch: 1 orange, 1 hard-bolied egg, 200 g low-fat sour cream, 2 melba toasts; dinner: 2 tomatoes, 2 eggs (boiled), half a head of lettuce. 2 melbas
    Day Two: lunch: same as day one; dinner: 125 g cooked ground beef/veal (meatballs, burger patties, etc.), 1 tomato, 1 orange, a cup of coffe or tea
    Day Three: lunch: 1 orange, 1 egg, 200 g sour cream, 1 head of lettuce; dinner: 125 g steak, 1 orange, 1 melba, a cup of tea
    Day Four: lunch:125 g low-fat cottage cheese, 1 tomato, 1 melba; dinner: 125 g ground beef/veal, 2 tomatoes, 1 apple, 1 melba
    Day Five: lunch: 200 g meat or fish, 1 tomato, 1 melba; dinner: 1 tomato, 1 egg, 500 g steamed vegetables
    As I said, repeat until you've been on the diet 15 days total. Do not use salt. If you need to add seasonings, use others (cayenne, paprika, dill, oregano, etc.). Do not use salad dressing, but add a little balsamic or apple cider vineagar if you like. Remember, do not combine the foods but eat them in the order that they appear here. Take a multivitamin-mineral, and don't be on the diet for longer than the 15 days mentioned. You should lose 5-10 lbs (2.5 - 5 kg) in the first five days. You can eat these items cold or warm (e.g. make apple sauce from your apple if you like).
    Do some light exercises if you're not used to exercising (walking is fine).
    Don’t forget
    Every Monday after the initial diet is supposed to be diet day: breakfast: lemonade made from one lemon and water (no sugar); lunch: 1 apple, 1 melba toast, dinner: 1 tomato, one hard-boiled egg, 1 melba. All
    Good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      I tried something like that before. I think it was the Mayo Clinic diet. It is really complicated and hard to follow through. If you are perfectly healthy, willing to make the commitment, and trying to lose wait quickly, there is a plan that I always follow. It's like the special k diet, but you can use any cereal or oatmeal. Eat cereal twice a day and one reasonable meal for two weeks, excluding one weekend day. Work out for forty minutes in the daytime and the evening as well. It works for me EVERY TIME. Also drink lots of water. If there was an outfit that I couldn't fit beforehand, I can fit it after wards. Its also really simple. People always say that exercising doesn't make a difference, but for me that one hour and twenty minutes a day makes all the difference. It can be taking a walk, nothing too strenuous.

      Good Luck

  39. QUESTION:
    Can I lose 5 kilos in a month if I diet and train like this ?
    I need to lose 5-6 kilos in 4 weeks.
    If I burn 1000 calories a day through exercising, 7 days a week, can I lose that much ?
    Here's my exercise plan:
    Every morning, I'll do 1 hr on treadmill ( burn around 300-400 calories )
    In the afternoon, I go to the gym for weight and cardio training. 30 minutes weight training and 1 - 1.5 hr on cardio ( burn around 600 calories )
    I will try to eat healthily, low-carb, high-protein and fibre diet.
    Here's my diet plan, 5-6 small meals a day, 2-3 hrs between each meal :
    - Breakfast (after walking for 1 hr) : protein shake (& maybe a glass of milk)
    - Snack 1: an apple or cottage cheese or special k, etc.
    - Lunch: chicken or tuna salad or dinner's left over (as I will replace my dinner with protein shake)
    - Snack 2 (before training) : something like snack 1
    - Dinner: protein shake & some veggies ( if still hungry I'll go for a yoghurt or a home-made jelly which contains only 14 calories and no sugar )

    I have 2 questions:

    1. Is it okay to burn 1000 calories through exercising only everyday?
    2. Can I drink protein shake for my breakfast and dinner (because i think drinking protein shake after training is good for muscle) ?

    I'd appreciate your responses.
    Cheers.

  41. QUESTION:
    16 years old, 250lbs, 5'10 - Best diet plan?
    Hey all, I'm 16 years old, 5'10 and weight 250lbs, i hate the way i look (body wise). Recently i've been doing 30 - 40 minutes exorcise on a treadmill for 5 - 6 days a week and about 2 - 3 late walks at night with the dogs (30 minutes a night). Few months back i weighted about 265lbs, which I've Lost 15lbs within those months (about 2- 3 months). Though, I've hardly changed my diet (cut out sweets, fizzy drinks). So what would be the best diet plan for me, and what would be an achievable target?

    • ANSWER:
      190 lbs is very attainable in 6 months time. Set mini goals for yourself. 8-10 lbs a month. You should sign up for a website such as: Gyminee where you can sign up for challenges to keep you motivated

      I think exercise and conditioning wise you're doing a very good job. As time passes, you'll be able to do 60 minutes easily on the treadmill, it's all about progression.

      What everyone learns in losing a great amount of weight is, that all the excercise in the world isn't going to do anything for you.

      Yes cutting out sweets and caloric drinks is a good step, but you have to look at the entire picture. Are you getting 20-25 grams of fiber per day? What is your water intake? Are you getting at least 64 ounces of water a day? Are you logging what you're eating? You should aim for a gallon a day.

      You also have to find out exactly how many calories per day someone at 5'10" 190 lbs burns to maintain their weight. Set that as your daily limit of calories per day and divide those calories into 5-6 meals.

      I already did the math for you. A 16 year old who is 5'10" and 192 lbs burns 2435 calories a day to maintain his weight. A 16 year old who is 5'10" 250 lbs (such as yourself) requires 2884.44 to maintain your weight.

      So lets say you set a limit of 2400 calories a day. That's already a defecit of about 400 calories right there. Let's estimate you burn another 500 calories per day working out, you've just created a deficit total of 900 calories per day.

      Over the course of the week that comes to a deficit of 5400 calories which equals 1.5 lbs for the week.

      Now you can see an even greater deficit if you were to bring your caloric intake to about 2000 calories a day, you create a daily deficit of 1300 calories which equals 2.6 lbs. a week, which turns out to 10.5 lbs a month and 62.4 over 6 months and that will take you to 187.5 lbs.

      2000 calories a day = 5 meals at 400 calories each.

      You being 16 makes it hard to control what you eat and what's in the fridge. You should sit down with your parents, discuss your goals and see if your fitness goals can fall inline within your family budget. Remind them that spending a few extra dollars a week to make sure you get the right nutrition is a better deal than a life time full of weight related illnesses.

      I'm glad you're taking the right steps now. Some people wait until something drastic happens to make changes.

  43. QUESTION:
    How much weight can I lose in 4-5 months on the following diet plan?
    I have asked this question before, and I followed through with the plan. I lost a little bit of weight, but I just gained it all back. I am trying to lose 20+ pounds in the next four months (and I'm going to stick to this diet even after that!)

    Diet Plan

    Food:

    My breakfast meal: oatmeal, fruit, and water. Or, Special K cereal and fruit and water.
    Lunch: a salad with low-fat ranch, another fruit, and water.
    When I get home: I have a glass of water and Yoplait Lite yogurt or a Special K bar.
    Dinner: Lean Cuisine/SlimFast diet meal with water and another a vegetable. Or, a salad and a fruit with water.
    Right before bed: a glass of water and two tablespoons of honey.

    Exercise:

    (In the mornings, I do 35 crunches and 15 push ups to get my day going)

    Monday: Stretch, run up and down the stairs for 30 minutes, do the Seventeen Magazine workouts for 20 minutes, then take my dog for a walk.
    Tuesday: Rest day, only take my dog for a walk after dinner.
    Wednesday: Stretch, do stair steps for 30 minutes, push ups and ab bridges and crunches for 10 minutes, then Seventeen Magazine workouts for 15-20 minutes, and Twister Dance.
    Thursday: Rest day, take dog for walk after dinner.
    Friday: Stretch, run up and down the stairs for 30 minutes, Seventeen Magazine workouts for 20 minutes, and then Wii Fit for 30 minutes after about 45 minutes of rest time.
    Saturday: Rest Day, take dog for walk in the morning and evening.
    Sunday: Stretch, stair steps for 30 minutes, push ups and ab bridges and crunches for 10 minutes, Seventeen Magazine workouts for 15 minutes, and Twister Dance.

    On every other weekend, I go jogging.

    Can I lose 20+ pounds in 4-5 months with this diet? I'm 5'2, female, and almost 14 (I know, I'm young, but my doctor has recommended that I lose weight because I am overweight for my age.)
    Also, I'm a 36C in bra size, will my breasts get REALLY small and saggy, or wil lthey barely change?

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds pretty good, specially because you're working out. However, I'm not sure what the point of having water with honey in it is? Just make sure you're having plenty of water all day long. It'll keep you more satisfied and makes your skin look good as well.

      Also, make sure you wear a sports bra when you work out, so everything stays in place. Your breasts might get a little smaller, but not too much. I used to be a B cup, and now I'm a small B or largish A. Don't worry about your breasts getting saggy, all you have to do is wear a bra that fits and it won't happen. Also, try doing some more push ups - it'll keep your chest muscles looking good, and that will make your boobs look good.

      One last tip: use the heaviest body moisturizer you can, to avoid stretch marks.

  46. QUESTION:
    Can some1 write me 5 factor diet&workout plan?thnx?

    • ANSWER:
      The 5-Factor Diet was originally created for celebrities. Harley was challenged to create brief (yet incredibly effective) workouts for actors, while training them during their short breaks on movie sets. In addition, he needed to create healthy meals in a matter of minutes (literally), using simple ingredients (the fewer the better) that could fit in the mini fridge on a set. Oh, and did we mention that he was relying on a blender and toaster oven for the mixing, blending, and cooking? Harley's clients were eating five times a day, cutting the length of their workouts, and transforming their bodies! As the saying goes, necessity is the mother of invention.

      The Online "Factor"
      Harley has taken his celebrity-approved diet, and turned it into an interactive and customized online program. Studies show that people who participate in online weight-loss programs lose more weight than those who go it alone. The 5-Factor Diet Online tools are designed to help you stay motivated, feel in control, and track your progress.
      Weight Loss Made Easy…
      5-week plan
      This plan is designed to give you results in five weeks! And it's so easy and effective that you may naturally turn your five-week plan into a lifestyle (as many of Harley's personal clients tend to do).

      5 meals a day
      Say so long to hunger and cravings. By eating five 5-Factor meals every day, not only will you start losing weight but you'll feel less hungry throughout the day!

      5-ingredient meals
      Eating delicious and healthy meals doesn't have to be hard. Members get hundreds of recipes that use only five ingredients and take only five minutes to prepare.

      25-minute workouts
      Based on Harley's training experience, he believes that working out more often for shorter periods of time is more effective than spending hours at the gym.

      5 cheat days in 5 weeks
      Taking a diet break one day a week can empower you. You should never feel as if you're in a diet prison! Plus, Harley believes that controlled cheating can actually help you reach your goals.

  47. QUESTION:
    im 180 lbs 11 years 5 "5 i need a diet plan help?
    please c'mon i need you

    • ANSWER:
      check with your doctor, to make sure you're ready, and they can help you find resources in your area. most important, this is a medical question not a social one, so don't take too much advice from friends. (don't listen to their criticism either)
      things to enjoy a lot of:
      fruit
      vegetables
      water
      things to include in your food intake:
      lean meat, beans, nuts, seeds
      lowfat dairy, or milk subsitutes like soy milk/almond milk/rice milk
      whole grains like oatmeal, rice, whole grain bread.
      you can check out the canada food guide to see how many portions of food group and how much a portion should be.
      things to limit, but you can enjoy small amouts once in while.
      fatty, or sugary or salty food such as:
      pop, chips, candy, pizza, fries, burgers, cheese, bacon, excess salad dressings, gravy,
      also, move your body. try different activities until you find something you enjoy, but aim for a cardio activity (walking, running, skipping, rollerblading, swimming, biking etc) 3-5x per week for 20-60 minutes, and stretching. you can also do some activities to improve your strength, although be careful because you are still growing, so check with your doctor, and stretch after every workout/activity you do.
      perhaps the most important advice is to not do anything too crazy, if you can't do it permanently you probably shouldn't do it (like fasting, or eating only one thing etc.)
      good luck! focus on being healthy, strong and active and the weight will take care of itself.

  48. QUESTION:
    What is a good diet and exercise plan for a 5'2 164lb 12 year old?
    What should they drink eat and what exercises would benefit them the best. All answers are appreciated!
    *Also* They would like to lose 25-35 lb.

    • ANSWER:
      Alright, first off, I'm happy that you want to change your ways. Leading a healthy lifestyle is awesome and you won't regret making the change.

      Start off exercising. Crunches alone aren't going to make you lose that bulge, buddy! You need some hard cardio sessions! Go running, go walking, go swimming. Try to start lifting weights, (even when you are resting you will burn more calories if you lift weights.) Get your heart beat up and start sweating. It may be really hard at first, it may be annoying how sore you may get, but within two weeks, if you keep it up and try your best, I promise that it will get easier.

      Don't go beyond your limit in the way that you end up hurting yourself. "No pain, no gain" isn't really helpful when it comes to weight loss. If you push yourself to hard and hurt your leg, then you can't exercise. Then what?

      So just push yourself, but not to the point where you get physically injured. If something starts to hurt, stop.

      Also, before any exercise, do some stretches. Try to sit on the floor and touch your toes one at a time. One leg, then the other. Try for 30 seconds. You want to warm your muscles up before going on a long, hard run, etc. You don't want to hurt yourself.

      There are calculators online that will help you see how many calories each day you should be eating to lose weight. Go to google, look up "calculator for losing weight" or something along those lines. You usually enter your height and weight, and your physical activity level and it will give you an estimate of calories you should eat per day to lose weight.

      Drink LOTS and LOTS of water. ALWAYS get 8 hours of sleep. You cannot lose weight if you don't get adequate sleep. You also need to stay hydrated to lose weight as well.

      Eat lots of protein from fish like tuna and try eating turkey breast, eggs, eat healthy kinds of nuts like almonds and walnuts, low fat cottage cheese is good with some fruit (skip bananas, though).

      START USING MEASURING SPOONS AND MEASURING CUPS! READ LABELS. NO MATTER WHAT. DO NOT EAT ANYTHING UNLESS YOU READ HOW MUCH A SERVING IS AND HOW MANY CALORIES IT HAS, AND WHAT KIND OF FATS IT CONTAINS.

      Stay far, far away from saturated, trans and hydrogenated fats. Stay away from high fructose corn syrup.

      Hope I helped. If you need anymore help or tips or inspiration, email me.

    • ANSWER:
      go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food after 7
      p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to calculate points or
      to buy special meals or plans.


3 Day Fruit Fast Diet Foods

I have to be honest. When I first encountered a low fat raw vegan diet, I thought it was insane. I already figured raw food was for crazies, but an entire meal of fruit? Pardon my French, but what in the heck?

But it wasn't the low fat part that bothered me. I had known for a long time the importance of eating a diet low in fat. It was this knowledge that actually helped me to steer clear of the high fat raw diet!

The problem I had was the amount of fruit that was recommended. And this is coming from someone who was eating 5-8 servings of fruit per day on a vegan diet. That's certainly a lot compared to most people, even most vegans!

Like most people, I considered fruit a snack. I would eat an apple or two with peanut butter between meals or a handful of raisins and nuts or maybe some berries with sugar for dessert. Even as a snack, I rarely ate fruit on its own.

My Journey to the Fruity Side Begins

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    I changed my diet and now I haven't pooped in 3 days! What is wrong?
    I went from eating cereal for breakfast, fast food for lunch, and anything for dinner (chinese, pizza, mexican, unhealthy food!) Myself and 3 friends all bought these Bolthouse Farms fruit/veggie smoothie drinks that are basically just fruit juice/puree.

    For breakfast I have a cup of it and a piece of fruit.. it's very filling. For lunch, another cup of it with fruit and some carrots or other veggies.. I just drink/eat enough to fill me up.

    Then for 1 meal a day I let myself eat regular food. One night we had pork chops & a baked potato. Another night we had a healthy version of pork chop suey. My nightly snacks include yogurt & string cheese or munching on fruit.

    I started this diet on Tuesday morning...the last time I went #2 was Monday at like 5 p.m. I don't even have the urge to go to the bathroom... no stomach pains...nothing. My 3 friends have been going regularly and 1 of them like twice a day. I'm creeped out...I don't want to take a laxative but what is wrong with me? What can I do/drink/eat to go to the bathroom?

    Is something wrong with my new diet that is preventing me from going? I find that it can't be that since my 3 friends have been fine with it.

  2. QUESTION:
    Safe foods for Acne?
    Hi, I have mild acne and I recently found out that supposedly almost every food causes acne (dairy, oil, fats, etc.) 3 days ago i decided to eat nothing but fruits and vegetables and drink nothing but water and 100% fruit juice to attempt to cleanse my body. I can't keep living off these foods because I love meat and sandwiches but I guess they will make my acne worse. I have not eaten chocolate, ice cream, or anything greasy such as fast food in probably 5 months. With the fruit diet I noticed a small skin imporvement but I feel less energized and light-headed constantly. I drink plent of water (6-8 cups a day). I take Proactiv for a topical treatment to couple the diet and speed up the healing process. I am going 1 more day on the diet then stopping. What are some foods I can eat other than fruits and vegetables that won't make my acne worse? Help please? (Also, I'm 16 no complicated recipes please)

    • ANSWER:
      In terms of medical research, there isn't a true association between specific foods and the worsening of acne. It is an "old wives tale" if you will.

      As you may know, acne is the blockage of pores with a subsequent accumulation of bacteria underneath - and is not due to having an unclean face.

      If you really want to try particular foods, you can try leave out one type of food to see if it improves. Otherwise, unless you find that one food particularly worsens your acne, i don't see any particular reason to avoid it.

      Otherwise, you might want to see your GP as they may have some recommendations that you may or may not want to try.

  3. QUESTION:
    How to maintain weight through eating a balanced diet with minimal to no fat?
    I am 6'3, 196lbs, and have trimmed down from 250lbs since January of this year. I have achieved this by eating healthier, cutting out fast food from my diet, eating high fiber enriched foods, and almost eliminating saturated and mono fat. When I do consume fat it is offset by almost triple the amount of protein (IE 3g fat to 9g protein) and food takes longer to digest. The primary reason for my healthier lifestyle was to help gain better conrol of my Type I diabetes. The problem I am stumbling on is my caloric intake is probably around 2000-2500 per day. I eat every 2 hours totaling 6 or more times per day with a strict diet of whole grains fruits and vegetables.

    My focus is that I need to stop losing weight and keep it level around 200lbs. I am wondering what recommendations you folks have for dieting and getting my calories up to around 3000 per day without increasing my fat consumption? Recipes, food suggestions, wbsites, or general information are all welcome and appreciated.

    Age:13
    Gender: female
    Height & weight: 170lbs

    My plan I'll do this stuff every day.(I'm not sure how many hours of exercise this is cause I didn't count lol)
    30 minute bike ride
    10-20 minute jog/walk with my dog Brody :)
    5 minute plank hold
    500 crunches (or more there easy for me)
    5 minute weight lifting for arms
    1 hour or more swimming
    3 hours of walking/running I walk dogs for a summer job
    General walking (around the house, at stores etc.)
    And other cardio stuff for 30minutes

    My eating plan,
    NO SUGARY FATTY FOODS/ DRINKS . (none at all)
    I'm gonna eat smaller portions- ( the right amount)
    Drink only water, 8+ glasses of water
    That's pretty much it. OH, and I'm gonna try to eat a fruit or veggie with each meal :)

    I normally do those exercises on a regular basis; except the an exercises and weight lifting. I'd tour wondering why I'm over weight it's not cause I eat a lot. I actually don't eat enough I usually only way dinner but when I do eat it's usually unhealthy or fast food.

    So If I do this EVERY DAY for...

    4 weeks how much could I lose ?

    7 weeks how much could I lose ?

    9 weeks how much could I lose ?

    ** I just need your guess/ estimations :)

    Thank you :)
    Edit :

  5. QUESTION:
    Should I fast before I start a diet?
    I heard that some things can take up to 72 hours to completely digest, therefore before I started a diet I wanted to do a 72 hour food flush. I'm only going to drink water and 100% fruit juice (in portion size) for 3 days. I'm not fasting for the purpose of losing weight, only so my body can clear all the bad food to lose weight. Is this okay?
    Any other diet tips?

    Thanks! (:

    • ANSWER:
      hm. it may help you. but i've also heard -- and this makes sense to me -- that by fasting and/or starving yourself, you teach your body that you're not getting enough fat, and it learns to hoard it, so you'll actually gain weight when you start eating again. in your case this may be fine. i don't know anything about this diet you're going on (it sounds a little bit iffy to me), so your judgment rules. good luck!

  6. QUESTION:
    Does a change in diet result in foods making you sick? Loss of appetite?
    A couple of weeks ago I started eating a lot healthier. I stopped eating fast food and foods with a lot of grease/fat/sugar, and started eating more fruits/vegetables etc..

    After I stopped eating simply when I feel like it, I noticed that I don't seem to actually have an appetite. The other day I went over 12 hours from the time I woke up without realizing I hadn't eaten. I start to feel fatigued and nauseous and have to realize mentally that it is from a lack of food. To put it bluntly I don't feel hungry even when I know I should. I have no problem eating the food once I get it, but it seems unnatural for me to not feel hunger. Is there something wrong here?

    I have been eating 2 moderately sized meals a day and that's it. I haven't been eating snacks. I know it is healthier to eat 3 meals a day with a couple of snacks but I haven't been doing so because of my lack of appetite. Should I be planning my meals out to eat 3 meals a day with 2 snacks despite a lack of hunger or should I just continue to eat as I have been?

    Also, I ate a couple of slices of oven-baked pizza a few days ago when I had run out of other things to eat and got sick afterwards. I ate some tortilla chips earlier today and am starting to feel like they made me sick too. I know that a lot of foods we consume are bad for your body and will make you sick if you change diets and are no longer used to them, but am I overly sensitive to these foods? Should I be getting sick from eating food that is salty and greasy now that I haven't been eating them for a while?

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I used to get hungry every couple of hours and have to eat or I'd get the shakes, headaches and sweats. I then went low carb and cut out all sugars. After I kicked the sugar habit, I found that I didn't need to eat anywhere near as much.

      You see, when you feed your body what it really needs and wants, good foods like you've been eating, it doesn't need as much.

      Eating twice a day is fine. You body will tell you when it is hungry. I do suggest that you take a multivitamin a day and drink plenty of water. That will take care of your problems.

  7. QUESTION:
    What's a good diet for a 3 year old?
    My son is now 3 1/2 years old and he weighs about 37lbs! By looking at him, he's not 'fat' but I can tell he's not as lean as he used to be. Over the past several months we have moved to a new house, had a baby, and traveled A LOT so his diet has been a lot of fast food and or "quick" meals (i.e. mac & cheese, pb & j, french fries, cheese pizza)
    He doesn't like veggies, except corn. I can't get him to eat anything! Honestly, nothing. A typical day's meals are: Breakfast: Cereal w/soy milk (usually fruity pebbles or similar type cereal) Lunch: Pb & J, his snacks are gold fish, sometimes a banana (if he's in the mood) or crackers. Dinner is usually Mac & cheese, "veggie" hot dogs (made from soy) or other "non meat" foods such as a veggie burger. That's pretty much a typical day. He is a vegetarian, so I'm constantly concerned about his diet since it's mostly centered around 'carbs' and such. My question is, what are some ways I can include veggies & fruits into his diet since he's SO picky?? (He won't even touch fruit juices by the way!)
    Thank you for any help you can give me!

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, let's keep in mind that whatever change you make in the kid's diet, it has to be gradual, over the course of at least a few weeks. I also think that you should not banish food groups, you just need to keep them under control.

      One thing is that I think you should add meat to his diet. I know vegetarianism is very hip, but I also think kids need a balanced diet. For a start, you can introduce some chicken, later maybe some turkey too, maybe some salami or cold cuts on his sandwich (plus cheese, tomatoes etc.). You can prepare that in a healthy (non-fattening) way too: chicken soup (with vegetables), or steamed chicken breast with some potatoes and carrots-peanuts-corn. But of course you can sometimes go for fried chicken too, just not too often.

      Vegetables -- well, this is always the hard part, isn't it? Keep in mind that children (under-teens) like to mimic their parents in many things, including what they eat. So, let him see you eat a lot of vegetables, drink OJ or some other juice, and no or very little "junk food". Also introduce apples (diced up), carrots, bananas, oranges and so on as snacks, and take back on fried snacks (remember what mummy said - no snacks between meals!).

      37lbs for a 3 1/2 year-old is really not that much, I'm sure that with some more veg and less snacks this can be kept under control. And maybe some long walks, hiking, running around on the playground.

  10. QUESTION:
    How much is too much fruit? Is this a healthy diet?
    I am a 15 year old guy
    6'5", 165 lbs

    I eat 5 servings of vegetables a day and about 15 servings of fruit and the food pyramids of most countries say that 5-10 are appropriate in the fruits/veg group.

    is it too much sugar? Should I aim for more veg and less fruit?

    I eat 3 servings of lean meat a day
    (turkey, fish and sometimes 2 tb spoons peanut butter)
    3 servings of dairy a day (soy milk/skim milk/4% fat cheese)
    7 servings of grains

    I eat very little oil
    (I only use it for making the pancake and thats only like a drop)

    I eat no sweets besides the occasional frozen yogurt (like once a month

    I eat no junk food, ever. Haven't been to a fast food place for like 2 years and I rarely eat out, but when I do its healthy food

    I am also physically active (30 min+ a day)
    and I run/lift weights once a week/every other week. I do 100 pushups +100 crunches + 50 leg lifts daily/every other day.

    taking a natural protein supplement daily(whey, 30 g of protein)

    • ANSWER:

  11. QUESTION:
    Because the kind of job I have, sometimes I eat out 3 times a day, not everyday..I know I am not doing the?
    right thing for my diet, but I try to go easy to whatever I eat. I go with a friend and we always share a restaurant dish for lunch or dinner, plus my breakfast is 2 cups of coffee with almost 2 small half and half plus a fruit plate or an egg beater with ham or tomatoes. But I dont eat any fast food or chips. My cholosterol was 280 a couple of months ago, and I have eatem oatmeal with pure water (like a punishment) and my cholesterol dropped to 240.
    I never eat potatoes, I do eat pasta if I make at home w/ sliced tomatoes and tuna. Am I doing bad?

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to lower cholesterol and triglycerides and to reduce your risk of heart problems is to stop eating animal products and increase your exercise.

      Your liver makes all of the cholesterol that your body needs, so you shouldn't add extra cholesterol in your food. Cholesterol is found only in animal products. So stop eating all meats (beef, pork, chicken, fish and shell fish), eggs, cheese and milk.

      Don't worry about not getting enough protein because there is protein in all fruits and vegetables.

      Increase your exercise level to burn up extra calories so that they won't be converted to fat. Also spending at least 30 minutes in the sun each day will help to reduce the cholesterol.

      Not only will you lower your cholesterol, but you will reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes. And if you stick with it for the rest of your life, it may even help you to live healthier and longer.

      At first glance, you might think that I am just another moron pushing a vegan diet. Yes, I advocate a vegan diet, but I supervise a natural health clinic and I see it work all the time.

  12. QUESTION:
    Am I eating enough throughout the day?
    I am a 15 year old male, 5'10", 130 pounds. I recently changed my eating(diet) and exercise habits, and I've been improving the foods every week. I was wondering if I am eating too much, too little, or just right. I am on a volleyball team for H.S., so we practice 2 hours a day, 4 days a week, and I walk 30 minutes every day on off-days, and do anaerobics every 3rd day. Here is my basic day (with switching the foods around):

    Breakfast:
    -Cheerios w/ Skim Milk
    -Fruit

    Snack #1:
    -Fruit
    -Cup of Granola

    Lunch:
    -Sandwich~Whole Wheat Bread, Mustard, and Deli Turkey
    -Fruit
    -Carrots
    -Diet Coke

    Snack #2:
    -Almonds
    -Milk

    Dinner:
    -Meat (Usually Chicken Breast or Turkey Filet)
    -Vegetables
    -Slice of Bread melted with some Margarine
    -Milk

    Of course, I eat fast-food about 2 times a week, occasional snacks, and I eat a square of Hershey's Dark a day, to stop cravings.

    I drink about 5 Arrowhead water bottles a day, and a Gatorade (to replace electrolytes after practice).

    Is this healthy?
    I don't think I'm fat, I just want to make it a habit, so I can be healthier when I'm older. :)

    And I don't know why I say twice. :P

    • ANSWER:
      Why don't you say "twice" instead of "two times"?.

  13. QUESTION:
    How long it takes to notice difference about body? (Diet)?
    I am on a 30lb+ diet, to lose that weight this summer. I weigh about 205 and want to get down to 170-180ish. I also want to build a body after I lose my weight/fat. It's been the forth day of my diet/exercise today and I powerwalk/jog (4.2 mph) a total of 3-4 miles everyday. I lowered my calorie intake to about 1200 calories with chicken, vegetable, fruit, healthy foods, etc...I feel lighter and my stomach FEELs like it went in just a LITTLE bit, but judging from my face or my entire body, I don't feeel like I lost any pound and Im wondering if this diet has any effect on me. What if after 3 months of this, nothing happens? I cut out the coke, chips, fried food, everything so the question is this. Is this normal for a person to not notice any major differences in his own body after 3 days of working out? I am 6'2 and my BMR says that I burn about 2100-2200 calories a day, according to the BMR calculator online. I should be losing weight so am I the only one or do all the others feel this way? How long does it take to notice major body changes? I passed the temptation of eating In-n-Out and other fast foods serveral times, I am very confident. HELP! Am I on the right track???? I also eat 5-6 meals a day starting yesterday, to get faster metabolism.
    The thing is I don't have a scale in my house so I don't know what EXACTLY my starting weight was and what I weigh now. I thought I'd be able to see the difference without a scale but I guess I should buy a scale to see if I actually lost any pounds.
    I am pretty sure that I weighed more than 200 but less than 210.

  14. QUESTION:
    going on an all FRUIT DIET?
    i want to go on an all fruit diet because i want to "clean" my body, plus i think it's safer and easier than going on a water fast. im 5'11", weigh 155lbs, and a female. ive been a vegetarian for two years and six months. i take a multivitamin 3 times a day (directions say to do so. thats how i get my protein and other nutrients) and the vitamins are all natural,organic, and plant based.

    1. how much weight will i lose if i go on an all fruit diet for 30 days?
    2. what are the common side effects (bad breath, dizziness?) and how long do they last?
    3. what exercise, if any, should i do during this period of time?
    4. what is the maximum number of days a person should go on a fruit diet?

    when the diet is over, i plan to break it by slowly introducing food in little amounts. plus, im going to become a raw vegan after the diet is finished.

    • ANSWER:
      You will be severely deficient in protein, calcium, iron, and other key nutrients. You will lose weight but since you will have no protein you will lose a lot of muscle mass. You will probably notice some fatigue, dizziness, and other unpleasant side effects. This really is a horrible idea no matter how long or little you do it.

      Edit: to Ms Born This Way...fruits contain lots of sugar which is a carbohydrate.

  15. QUESTION:
    Am I losing weight too fast?
    I started a fitness regimen and have changed my eating habits as of a couple of weeks ago and I'm losing weight very rapidly and I would like to know if the rate at which I am going is unhealthy.

    I my first week I lost 10.2 lbs and the second I have lost just under 7 lbs.

    I used to work out quite a bit (weights, racquetball, running) but over the last few years I have gotten pretty out of shape. (5'8" 235 lbs). My diet was horrible (fast food, junk food, large quantities and lots of calories) and my physical activity has been embarrassing. I started cracking down on myself a couple of weeks ago. I am not starving myself at all. I have a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, fruit as a mid-morning snack, a sandwich or salad or beans & rice for lunch and a dinner of salmon, chicken, and vegetables (or something equally healthy). I am also drinking plenty of water. As far as workout, I am not killing myself my any means. I walk 6 miles every 2-3 days a week, jogging for part. I do Basic Tae-Bo on days I don;t jog, and I do 100-150 push ups, 300-400 crunches a day and several other basic calisthenics. I also have been doing moderate impact weight training. I don't feel like I'm over-doing it at all, but I understand that it's not ideal to drop so much weight so fast. Any ideas?

    Diet Advice, how much food should I eat while on slim-fast diet?
    I've been doing a regular diet of healthy food & exercise for the past couple of months, but haven't seen any results. Currently, I've been on the slim-fast diet, and I also exercise 30 minutes a day with running a mile twice a week. I still eat healthy, but I want to know how much food I should eat daily. I have a slim-fast shake for breakfast, one for lunch with a granola bar, a small dinner when I get home, and about 2-3 snacks of fruits or vegetables after that. Is this too much food, or should I reduce how much I am eating? Advice from other slim-fast users would be appreciated.

  19. QUESTION:
    why do i gain 3 lbs when i cheat on my diet?
    ok i work out everyday and have dopped from 230-189. two nights ago i cheated for the first time and had like 10 beers and fast food.
    today beofre i went to work out i weighed in at 193 WTF. one time i cheat and all that weight
    why does this happen
    mu ussual diet consists of healthy veggies fruit and chicked some stirfry ussually 1200 cals a day

    • ANSWER:
      The increase on the scale is not all fat. In fact it isn't even mostly fat. It is mostly water retention from the alcohol and salt from the fast food. In a day or two, the scale will drop down to about 190. Fat requires 3500 calories to form one pound. There is no way that you consumed 10,500 calories in one night.

  20. QUESTION:
    IS THIS A SUPER 3 HUNDRED CALLARI A DAY DIET OR WHAT?
    just three hundred callaries per day in this diet i am not going to joke but you need a juice machine first of all to make your brakefast this will take one hour from 8 am to 9 am get out you food processer and start with, use one whole grape fruit and just drink it down with a whole pint of water then one hour later eat a banna with one glass of semi skim milk or soya because it contains 1 % fat only.
    now for lunch at 11 am or 12 am make up salad and one tin of tuna mix with spinach chick pease and garlic and a table spoon of oliv oil eat with two slice of riey vita crisp bread then sit back and digest fot half an hour then go for a half hour walk and carrie some water to drink, then when you get back and are feeling hungrey maybe then get out of your fridge a ready made slim fast milk shake drink it then straight after down it with a full glass of water and get on with the wouse work instead of just sitting straight down, At around 1pm its time to take a nap for half hour by 2pm you will be thinking about dinner get out cabbage and lentles and one oxo cube and make a supe throw in one handfull of minced beef or lam just for the protine and for desert you can have apples oranges banna or make a smoothy, PS "GOOD LUCK"

    • ANSWER:
      tht is deffintally over 3 hundren calories. ok so if you was to eat all that ur intate would look like this
      grape fruit: 100 caloires
      banana: 107 calores
      semi skim milk (1 cup): 48 calories
      salad: (simple) lettuse: 1 cup 6.6 calories
      tomato: whole small 21 caloies
      cucumbers: 1 cup 13 calories
      tuna: 50 caloires (the one i buy)
      spinach: dry 1 cup 49 calories
      chick peas: canned 1 cup 285
      garlic: minnesed 1 tsp 15 calories
      riey vita crisp bread: i couldnt find it so look at the label
      slim fast milk shake: strawberry 212 if u hav a different flavor check label
      cabbage: raw 21 calories
      lentles: 1 cup raw 678 caloires
      oxo cube: 13 caloires
      beef: 100g 330 cal
      or
      lamb: 1 cup 886 caloires

      so if u ate all that with the beef total: 1948.6 cal + the bread
      lamb:2504.6 cal + the bread

      sorry to burst your bubble but that is way more over 300 caloires and a lot of what you are eatting has high fat

  21. QUESTION:
    i run 20 miles a day i love it but i eat alot of junk food. is this bad for me?
    well first of all i make sure to eat a diet absoultely packed with vegatables,fruit,fish,seed,oats and stuff . bit i also eat alot of chocolate after that because i love it. im 15 and run 20 miles a day cos i love running aswell. does this food affect me in anyway. im not worried about my weight i have all muscle and barely no fat on me . its just that what can this junk food do to me. is it still bad for my heart if i eat it or is that only overweight people. is it bad for my kidneys liver anything like that? i dont eat fast food or soda or anything just chocolate maybe 3 bars a day. after luncg at school, after dinner and after training. i really do get all my vegetable intake and all but is it still bad for me to not be eating perfectly healthy. what difference would it make if i ate an absoulte perfect nearly raw food diet. (i dont eat cooked veg as they lose vitamins) junk food doesent seem to affect my performance but i wouldnt know because i eat chocolate every day of my life.lol
    oh and look at michael phelps. he eats loads of junk food along with healthy food and he looks really healthy!
    to ollie: no im only 15 but i dream of being an ultra marathon runner some day or to play for arsenal lol! and yes there is a ladies team.

    • ANSWER:
      I would give you an honest answer to this question, but I don't believe you run 15-20 miles every day. I live near a bike/hike trail and we have lots of runners there all the time. The most any of them do is 5 miles in and 5 back. No one does 15-20 daily. They might be able to do that once in awhile, but not every day.

    Oh and does the 5-4-3-2-1 diet work?
    Each of three meals per day should consist of:

    5 bites of protein.

    4 bites of vegetables.

    3 bites of carbs, preferably whole grains.

    Welcome to the 5-4-3-2-1 Diet 2 bites of sweets.

    1 minute between bites.

    Add: One mid-morning snack, one mid-afternoon snack (yogurt or other dairy, fruit, nuts), a multivitamin, and 8 glasses of water each day.

    Rules for this diet plan:

    * If you do not want dessert, you can eat two additional bites of protein, vegetables, or carbs.

    * If your menu items are not separated, eat 14 total bites. For example, a pasta dish would not be separated.

    * One subtle way to help count bites is to move a piece of food off to the side of your plate for each bite you eat.

    * Bites should be “normal”-sized and chewed well.

    * Eat “mindfully.” Don’t be distracted. Savor each bite.

    * Limit diet soda to one per day.

    * Prepare foods in a healthy manner. Limit fats to two teaspoons of heart-healthy oils each day.

    * Use food pyramid guidelines for snack portions.

    * Include a minimum of 30 minutes each day of exercise.

    * Choose denser foods to stay full longer.
    i wont be drinking soda only water or fruit juice during this diet.

  23. QUESTION:
    any healthy, fast, and easy diets for a 14 year old?
    I'm 14 years old, 5'4", and 140 pounds. I hate it. I need a simple, fast, but healthy diet to go on for about 1-2 months. I want to lose like 20-30 pounds. (please don't say that would make me underweight). I would like to know what kind of food I should eat. like, how about:
    1-3 eggs for breakfast
    a salad with ranch dressing for lunch
    a yogurt or piece of fruit for a snack
    then a salad for supper (with maybe a little chicken or something)
    Do you guys think that that is okay for my diet food wise? and for my excercises how about this:
    run(or walk) 1-2 miles a day
    bike 1-3 miles a day
    do two 10 minute ab videos by denise austin (levels 1 and 2)
    If I excerise and eat like this each day (except for not excercising on Sunday except maybe a 1 mile walk) how much weight do you guys think I could lose within 2 months?
    any other suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      I would go with a high fiber cereal for breakfast, such as fiber one. They actually make some really good cereals that don't make you go super hungry. Or some whole-wheat toast. Whole grains are much better than a white flour.
      I have recently lost 32 pounds and I think my biggest change was diet. It's amazing how much you can loose by just changing how and what you eat.
      I eat fruit and cereal for breakfast, fruit and a granola bar, crackers, or pretzels for a pre-lunch snack. Then for lunch I eat sand which (usually turkey or ham) with more fruit. I can not stress the importance of fruit!!! Add cheese to your sand-which. A diet should not be about starving yourself because that can have the reverse effect. It you don't eat enough, your metabolism actually slows down.
      I usually eat another snack for dinner and a good home cooked meal for dinner. Salad is always good, but don't starve yourself. You might end up snacking on something even more unhealthy. Some good dinner things are spaghetti (try whole grain), chicken, and yes, salad.
      I think your exercise plan sounds good. Aerobic exercise is a little more important than the ab tape, hate to say it. If you are not doing aerobic exercise, you can not burn the fat to show of any six-pack you do have.
      I think most importantly is to make decisions about your diet you can actually maintain. There is really no point in losing 20 pounds if you are going to gain it back once you lose it.
      When I started dieting, I made really small changes. It took me a year, but it was so worth it. I not only look better, but feel better.
      Please, eat healthy and go ride your bike. If you have questions, please ask and be patient with the weight lose.

  24. QUESTION:
    Can I get fit without being a calorie counter?
    Hi! I am 5'5 and 139lbs. I am looking to get fit and tone some areas of my body (hips, backside, and thighs). I do pilates 5 days a week and already my abs are looking great (its been about 4 weeks). I am about to bump my exercise up to pilates 5 days a week + running 45mins 3 days a week. I eat a pretty healthy diet - fresh fruit and vegetables daily, no soda and lots of water, fast food once a week or less, no red meat, lots of fish, etc. But I do have a soft spot for grains, cereal, bread, etc.

    However, I am not interested in being a calorie counter! I want to exercise to tone and get fitter but I am not interested in counting calories everyday. Is it possible that I can continue eating a relatively healthy diet without counting calories and still tone my body? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Yes I beleive you can. Maybe you can try some kind of circut training a few times a week. I go to Curves and I lost 17lbs in 3 months and you eat a lot healthier than me. I think the combination of strength training and cardio are great. Check out curves.com and you can see what it's all about.

  26. QUESTION:
    How much do carbs matter?
    As an obese 23-year-old male, I burn 3500+ calories a day just being sedentary. I also do 20 minutes of cardio 5 days a week at my target heart rate or higher, which burns over 250 calories. I know I should do more cardio, but I am out of shape and need to build up to 30+ minutes. I also do weights 3 days a week.

    My diet is low calorie. I don't drink soda, or eat candy or fast food. I eat normal foods like fruit, vegatables, yogurt, tuna, chicken, turkey, wheat bread, wheat pasta, brown rice, oatmeal, nuts, and various chewy bars. This adds up to 1800 calories a day, giving me a calorie deficit of at least 1700 calories each day (If i am to believe these online calculators).

    Given that I am burning more calories than I am taking in, is it going to completely hinder my weight loss if, say, 50% of my caloric intake consists of carbs? I can cut candy, soda, juice, and fast food from my diet and I can eat low-fat foods, but I feel weak and hungry if I don't eat breads, rice, and pasta.

    How much truth is there to the age-old concept that "calorie is a calorie"?

    • ANSWER:
      An average healthy diet is about 55% carb (good carbs like the ones you're eating!), 25% fats (unsaturated!) and 20% protien.

      You're right that you do need the good carbs that you're eating. Just try to control your portions and keep up with the exercising.

      Get healthy, good luck buddy!

  27. QUESTION:
    Question about foods on my diet? Ive lost 15lbs so far...?
    Well so far everything is going great. Lost 15lbs since April and I am feeling good. Use the stairs all the time at work now, however I have a question about breakfest....

    We have a shop downstairs. They only charge me a dollar to get eggs with chopped bacon mixed in. My question is, how many calories is that? The eggs are scrambled and then chopped bacon (about 3 pieces worth) and about 3-4 eggs worth are cooked. How many calories is that. They have all kinds of things (not really fruit WHICH sucks) but I usually go home for lunch and I have a great selection of fruits and veggies. But anyways, I wanted to know the calories in that and also any suggestions for low calorie but filling breakfast. I drink a lot of water during the day so it helps the meals last but I think this is the one area where I am taking in a bit more calories than I want to.

    About me:
    6'5" 362lbs I was 377lbs...
    Cut out fast food so far and drink a lot of water.

    • ANSWER:
      It's probably at least 500-600 calories, depending on how they cook it. If they scramble the eggs in some kind of fat, it's probably at least 700-800.

  29. QUESTION:
    Good Diet Bad Diet..........................…?
    Ok so for more than 2 years I have been eating bad food choices such as a lot of Junk food and sweets and other.

    When I do regular diets "the healthy ones" I often not loose much weight and I get bored and decide to go back to my regular eating unhealthy habits.

    I KNOW IT IS WRONG but please continue reading

    So when I decide that I want to do a non healthy diet, it is usually working better for me bcs I am loosing weight faster and I feel much better health wise and my breathing is better and I can usually last for a long period of time on such diets.

    so which is better eating unhealthy fast food and not controlling my intakes and of course gaining weight???
    or
    being on a diet plan that some ppl think it is not healthy and loosing weight and feeling great???

    The Diet plan that I am talking about is 3 day diet.

    Thanks all answers are welcome

    oh and by the way this diet in my opinion is not unhealthy it is much better than most diets. it consists of fruits and veg. and protein intakes. so what can be bad about that?

    • ANSWER:
      The best thing to do is to change your lifestyle and eat a healthy diet all the time and exercise as well. Binge and yoyo dieting isn't a good thing because you end up losing muscle on diets like that and then it makes it harder to lose weight the next time around. Fresh fruits and veggies are an essential part of a diet you should eat all the time, not just to lose weight.

      Here's a review of a couple of good diets that cover exercise as well and that will help you maintain the weight once you lose it:

  30. QUESTION:
    How many calories a day does a person on a raw food diet/lifestyle eat daily? (Please answers! :) ?
    I just would like to know because i find it hard to imagine eating 1,200 (wich is the lowest you can eat and still remain healthy) calories a day. Do they just eat that most veggies and fruit to eat over 1,200+ calories or do they go below that?

    If they go below that, how do they loose so much weight without going into starvation mode?

    Also please tell me..How do you prepare for it? I want to start one by Jan 1st What can i do now to prepare, because i've been eating so unhealthy and such processed foods. I've been eating around 3,000 calories a day. I know that it will be a HUGE shock to my body if I just start. Should I start with a fast? How do i ease into this with the most minimal shock possible?

    Thanks you.

    • ANSWER:
      i'm a raw vegan.. been eating 1800 calories a day for the last 40 yrs.

      i haven't gone into starvation mode.. because i don't starve my body.

      shock? i'm not quite understanding this query... ???

      a raw food diet is much healthier... thus if you go into shock there's another problem or underlying condition dear... has nothing to do with the diet...

      the diet of a raw vegan, for instance, is much more mineral, vitamin and protein packed.. because the elements are SOLUBLE.

      unlike in meats, dairy and other processed foods. (which are packed with inert materials that the body can't processed effectively.)

  31. QUESTION:
    The best diet which made me lose more than 26 kilos in 4 months?
    Hey everyone!

    I thought I'd post the diet which a relative of mine gave me (a nutritionist from france gave it to her and this diet does not belong to me)! I know how frustrating it can be to lose weight and before this diet, I was so desperate, that I was willing to pay £66 per week until my relative gave this to me! I had tried all sorts of diet, the slim fast diet, the atkins diet, the 3 day diet, the detox diet, just water diet and nothing helped.

    This is the only diet that helped me so if you guys need it, I'm willing to share and please share with others who are in need of it. If you stick to it, you should lose about 6-8 kilos per 2 weeks.

    Monday:

    * Morning: 1 cup of black Coffee
    * Afternoon: boiled spinach without salt, 2 eggs
    * Evening: Salad + tomato +1 steak & a lump of cheese

    Tuesday:

    * Morning: 1 cup of black Coffee + 1 slice of Bread
    * Afternoon: Fruit (excluding mango and banana) + 1 small pot of plain yoghurt (use 3-4 tablespoons if pots are unavailable)
    * Evening: Salad + Tomato + 1 egg

    Wednesday:

    * Morning: 1 cup of black coffee and 1 slice of bread
    * Afternoon: boiled chicken + salad
    * Evening: Fruit + 1 small pot of plain Yoghurt

    Thursday

    * Morning: 1 cup of black Coffee & 1 Slice of bread
    * Afternoon: boiled Carrots + 2 eggs
    * Evening: boiled chicken and salad

    Friday:

    * Morning: boiled carrots & 2 boiled eggs
    * Afternoon: Boiled fish (of any kind)
    * Evening: Salad + Tomato and lamb steak

    Saturday:

    * Morning: 1 cup of black coffee + 1 slice of bread (Toasted)
    * Afternoon: Fruit
    * Evening: Salad + 2 eggs, carrots grated and boiled and a lump of cheese

    Sunday:

    * Morning: Lemon flavoured black coffee
    * Afternoon: Salad and carrot
    * Evening: Reasonable amount of food, whatever you fancy.

    This routine should be followed for 2 weeks, followed by a 1 week gap in which you must eat lots of boiled vegetables, boiled rice, boiled potatoes, boiled lentils, neither of these things should contain a lot of oil or butter otherwise there is no point in doing the diet! Please do not use any sugar and try to avoid fatty foods, consume plenty of water... For the salad, whilst in the diet, use any kind of salad, but in limitation, do not go over the limit. for the spinach, have a small amount and boil without using any salt. PLEASE REMEMBER, NO SALT OR SUGAR IS TO BE USED DURING THE DIET, IN YOUR ONE WEEK GAP, YOU CAN USE SALT, BUT IN LIMITATION, If you really feel like eating junk food, you can have it once in 1-2 months!

    IMPORTANT NOTICE: Start this diet on any Monday, because you need the intake of Iron (Spinach)

    Good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      This is a very low calorie diet. I figure, its a 500 calories per day diet.

      Unless you are taking appetite suppressants, this diet is unrealistic. The calorie intake is way too low. The body needs minimum 1200 calories per day. Your body will go into 'starvation mode' to conserve energy during periods of food insufficiency, which will consequently reduce your metabolism. You will lose weight, for sure, but it will come right back immediately after you conclude the diet.

      Good luck tho.

  32. QUESTION:
    i just started a diet?
    im 16 years old, and im overweight. I've worked out pretty much my entire life, so I have a decent body tone, but theres still plenty of excess weight I want to lose. I recently started a very strict diet. I eat maybe 3 or 4 times a day, i refuse to eat fast food and i workout at the gym for about an hour a day (at least 10mins of eliptical cardio a day) along with different muscles. In the past 3 days i've dropped about 6 lbs, i usually eat fruit (bananas,oranges,apples) and carrots mainly. my question is am i going to see these results continue? 6 lbs in 3 days is a lot, almost an unhealthy amount of weight to lose, but i'm tired of being unhealthy and fat, so im doing something about it. i dont have much of an appetite so im looking for the most beneficial foods possible, i usually have to force myself to eat because i also have been taking a weight loss shake called plexus slim for about 2 weeks and it made me to where i decide everything that goes into my mouth way better, i dont binge eat and i can look at unhealthy foods with no second thoughts, and i have a lot of willpower

    • ANSWER:
      It's a good start. The main thing with diet and exercise is to be consistent "MOST" of the time. Even the most shredded guys/gals out there will treat themselves once in awhile. As long as you're consistent most of the time, you should be fine.

  33. QUESTION:
    Can I totally tranform my diet?
    I've been blessed with a fast metabolism, so I'm thin but have had a really bad diet for the past 10 years-I'm talking about eating fast-food 3 times a day, and drinking nothing but soda. Is it possible for me to switch to water and eat nothing but veggies & fruits? Or will my body go all weird cause of the sudden change?

    • ANSWER:
      >>>>>>Short answer>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      Yes and I should know I also have a high metabolism and did almost exactly the same thing when I got out of college to improve my running times. Needless to say it worked very successfully and felt amazing. You also need foods for sources of protien and balanced fats, however, including oils and or nuts.

      >>>>>>Detailed answer>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      A FEW NOTES ON THE SIDE EFFECTS: at first your stomach may feel a bit odd as it has to learn to digest the cellulose in the veggies and you may feel a bit empty since your body can't get the nutrients immediately in the same way it can for, say, soda sugar or white bread starch.
      >>>>>>
      But be warned, you will need something beside just veggies, fruits, and water, though (those only gives carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals alone)...BUT NOTE, CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF, CARBOHYDRATES FROM FRUITS AND VEGETABLES ARE MUCH LOWER GLYCEMIC INDEX THEN ANY COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATE PRODUCTS (POTATOES, RICE...EVEN WHOLE GRAINS) AND THUS MUCH BETTER FOR YOU...READ GLYCEMIC INDEX CHARTS IF YOU DOUBT ME.

      specifically, you need protien and a good balance of fats (as opposed to the terrible fat balance in fast foods and even many normal supermarket foods)
      >>>>>>>>
      You also need protien...since vegetables have almost none you need to get protien from beans otherwise you won't be able to grow or maintain muscle and bones properly.

      You also need fats to maintain these. You can do this by cooking your vegetables in both Olive Oil and some coconut oil (instead of cheese, which is a less healthy way to get saturated fats) or eating nuts.
      ______Fats are a bit complex (read Dr. Barry Sears' book the Omega-Rx zone and his Zone Diet literature for more info). Make sure to get as much mono-unsaturated fat as saturated fat (1 to 1 ratio...not getting enough saturated fat can actually be bad for you) and use fish pills for Omega-3 fats (most foods, even fish, don't have a fraction of the Omega-3's you need). Keep in mind fast food has well over a 10 to 1 ratio of sat fats to mono-unsaturated fats...that's why there are so many "anti-sat fat diets"

      Best luck, if it goes for you anything like it did for me you'll feel great and natural on the new diet within about 2 weeks! :-)

  34. QUESTION:
    how could i improve my diet/exercises?
    over the summer which was on june through september i lost about 20 pounds.. i was 164 and now im like 140-145 and i am very glad the only problem i have is that every single day i feel like i keep gaining weight because my metabolism is very slow and my belly inflates for 2-3 hours after i eat..i improved so much on my eating habit, i drink about 4 bottles of water a day.. and i have 2 fruits. i am really avoiding fast food and soda, etc. im 15(16 in two months). about 5'7 and after i lost all that weight my belly was gone but i still have left over skin that makes me look kind of chubbier, i work out 2-3 days a week for about an hour and a half and i mostly lift weights and work on my abs and legs, any tips on how i could IMPROVE my exercising and diet.. im really looking foward to having a nice body next summer and i want to do it for myself too so i can feel awesome because ive been chubby for so many years. im deff not as chubby anymore i have a flat belly like i said but i just want to strech all my skin and get rid of all those left overs that turn into fat ugly rolls when i sit :(

    • ANSWER:
      if you go to a gym, talk with a trainer and ask them about it. they're very informative on these kinda things. but i'd say start doing some light weightlifting. that'll get rid of the extra fat for sure, concentrate more on ab workouts. i mean lifting dumbells will help and all, but you should concentrate on ab workouts, and that'll get rid of the fat without doubt. and just google ab workouts, you should get tons of info. and im really struggling with weight loss, can you give me some advice? im a guy, 5'10" and ive bounced up to 180 lbs. now and i really wanna cut down about 20-25 lbs. i weight lift alot, so maybe just do cardio from now on and stop lifting for a while? and any advice on good ways to lose weight..like what to eat? and also, what to bring for lunch to school, b/c my mom keeps giving me burgers and stuff like that. thanks!

  35. QUESTION:
    How to lose weight and be on a healthy diet fast?!?
    I am a freshman in college and the freshman15 legit happened to me! well, somewhere between 10-15 pounds. My whole first semester I ate whatever I wanted and never worked out and I didn't gain weight but it is now second semester and I've visibly gained weight especially in my thighs, butt and stomach. It bothers me so much because I miss my old figure and all throughout my life I've always had a high metabolism and have eaten what I wanted and not gained weight, so It's really hard for me to diet now!
    I'm not good in judging what I can or cannot eat. Obviously I know to eat more veggies and fruit which I have been doing and whole grains and organic foods. But I enjoy chinese take out (fried rice) or burritos (and other mexican food) and I'm not sure if those are really bad for me or not. Does anyone have any good free diet websites where I could look that up?
    Also, I try and do cardio exercising such as elipticals or the bike but I get so exhausted after 10-15 minutes. Is that normal? I know you are supposed to do cardio around 20-30 min per day.
    I need advice please!!!! I really want to lose all this weight and fast! Summer break is coming in 3-4 weeks!! and i want my old figure back desperately!!
    Thanks!!!

  38. QUESTION:
    How to please a 3 year old but get my way (potty training and diet)?
    I have noticed lately my daughter is not eating properly. She is not eating poorly just not eating at the correct times or always eating what is in front of her. She doesn't seem to like to eat the main part of supper the meat. If we have pork chops and mashed potatoes with a veggie she will eat all but the pork chop. She doesn't eat her hamburger if we go to a fast food restaurant. She snacks well though lots of fruits and veggies and loves ceral and will eat that as a snack as well.
    As for the potty I don't even know my other daughter was trained at 2.5 and she loved the rewards. This one could careless about treats or stickers. She will go once in a blue moon without being asked. Sometimes when I ask her or make her sit on the potty she won't go but then 2 min later will pee in her pants and will often go more than once in a half hr period. One day it was 3 times in a half hour. I don't know what to do.
    I want her to eat to get her protiens but she is so stubborn and I want her to go on the potty so I can register her for playschool in the fall

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like she's telling you something. She wants to eat healthy! I wouldn't eat a fast food hamburger either and maybe she doesn't like a fatty pork chop either. Do you know how awful that crap is for you?

      She's obviously going through a phase, be thankful she's eating her vegetables. It will pass with age.

      What it sounds like to me is that you need consistency in your home. Get her on a schedule. Make her go to the bathroom regularly and encourage her to pee and poop on the potty. Just send a consistent message about food and potty training.

  39. QUESTION:
    went off diet!!!!?
    i went off diet again, and this time it was bad... i lost about 6 pounds in 2 and a half weeks. but in the past 2 days i ate all fast food and alot of it!! i ate the fattiest things imaginable ( we all know they taste better) now i must get rid of some more pounds in about 3 days. the plan is to eat a normal breakfast, and for the rest of the day eat nothing but strawberries and non-calorie fruit plus exercise for an hour each day. will it work??

    • ANSWER:
      For a while it will probably work, But..

      It sounds like you have an unhealthy diet because u say u love eating fast food ( just guessing but )

      First you need to start eating a good healthy balanced diet with the right amount of everything..

      Then once youve made this lifestyle change you can begin to limit the amount of calories in your diet, if u want to loose some weight just stick at it and you can do anything you want!

  40. QUESTION:
    How can I get my 3 yr old to eat fruits & veggies?
    My son is now 3 1/2 years old and he weighs about 37lbs! By looking at him, he's not 'fat' but I can tell he's not as lean as he used to be. Over the past several months we have moved to a new house, had a baby, and traveled A LOT so his diet has been a lot of fast food and or "quick" meals (i.e. mac & cheese, pb & j, french fries, cheese pizza)
    He doesn't like veggies, except corn. I can't get him to eat anything! Honestly, nothing. A typical day's meals are: Breakfast: Cereal w/soy milk (usually fruity pebbles or similar type cereal) Lunch: Pb & J, his snacks are gold fish, sometimes a banana (if he's in the mood) or crackers. Dinner is usually Mac & cheese, "veggie" hot dogs (made from soy) or other "non meat" foods such as a veggie burger. That's pretty much a typical day. He is a vegetarian, so I'm constantly concerned about his diet since it's mostly centered around 'carbs' and such. My question is, what are some ways I can include veggies & fruits into his diet since he's SO picky?? (He won't even touch fruit juices by the way!)

    Thank you for any help you can give me!

    • ANSWER:
      I think that there are several ways to get him started, hopefully at least one works for you. First, if he's hungry, he'll eventually eat what you offer. So before you make him a sandwich, try giving him a few sliced apples or a couple of grapes. Tell him you won't make the sandwich until the apples are gone. It only has to be a few bites. He may rebel and skip lunch for a few days, but he'll eventually be hungry enough to eat them and as long as you don't give in, he'll learn that your serious.
      Another idea is to sneak in the fruits and veggies. Chop up carrots and celery very small in casseroles and even in his mac and cheese. If they are small, he won't notice the taste or be able to pick them out. Squashes may be good because you can mix them in and hide them well in certain foods like mashed potatoes. Maybe try berries in his cereal and on top of his ice cream. You can even sneak in some fruit in his next pb/j sandwich. If he likes strawberry jelly, slice up a few thin pieces or fresh strawberries and he won't even notice them in between the peanut butter and jelly. Eventually, he may find that he likes peanut butter and banana sandwiches or pb and berry sandwiches.
      You can try a wide variety, and make sure you're eating them in front of him so he can see the example. Try things like strawberries and blueberries and some of the sweeter fruits.
      Remember that beans are a good source of protein, and are healthy too. Try homemade chili or black beans in his next burrito.
      A great way to eat some fruit is a smoothie. For breakfast, a snack or to go along with lunch and dinner, or even a dessert that night. Just use a little yogurt, some fruit (bananas, berries, peaches, pineapple, mango, and coconut work well), a little milk and some ice and you have a great healthy fruit filled drink that tastes wonderful. Top it with a little whip cream and a cherry and you've got a real treat!
      You can also try fruits and veggies with dips. You can chop up all sorts of fruit to be dipped into caramel, melted chocolate, cool whip, marshmellow cream, honey, pb, etc. Plus, dipping is fun. He may eventually like to dip veggies in ranch or even chip dips.
      I hope some of these ideas help, remember that his nutrition is up to you, even if he seems to refuse fruits and veggies, you're the one who is responsible for his health. He may throw a few ugly looks at what you're trying, but if he's hungry, he'll eat what you give him. If you always give in, he doesn't benefit.

  43. QUESTION:
    being tired the next day after working out.?
    after taking SuperPump 250(a nitric oxide supplement with Creatine) I do my weight lifting workout, plus I do a ab work out everyday (don't know if it matters). After, I drink a protein shake. Then 30 minutes later I eat dinner. I usually eat chicken, tuna (fish), veggies, a lot of water ( a gallon a day). in the morning I eat 5 egg whites with olive oil, whole grain cereal,(or oat meal), 1 or 2 pieces of fruit, a protein shake, and a multi vitamin. Lunch I eat a salad with grilled chicken low fat dressing. But heres where the problem incurs... I get off work and I go home and I am so tired for some reason that I go right to bed sometimes sleeping 6 to 7 hours. My loved one is becoming concerned about how much i sleep and wants to know why I am so tired. I tell her I just stated working out and weight lifting for the 1st time in a long time and my body is getting use to it and needs sleep to repair. Am I right? or is it my diet or maybe its the supplements I am taking (she thinks its the superpump 250 thats making me so drained and tied) I only take it on the days i work out. I work out for 3 days and rest a day. can someone tell me why i am so tired after i work? I am a manager at a fast food joint so its not to much physical labor.

    • ANSWER:
      Wow first off I wish everyone had your dedication and ambition :) . From what I can tell your diet is dead on BUT you need more carbs and that's why you are burning out . You also need to give your self enough rest period between training days for repair your muscles . I would be interested to see what type of lifting routine you have with sets and reps - you may be doing too much volume . The supplements are not whats making you tired .

      *** EDIT *** I've been drinking a gallon + of water a day for several years and never have had any problems . You need the extra hydration especially if you are taking creatine .

      For my metabolism, I do well without many carbohydrates, lots of fresh vegetables, and I treat myself to a medium scoop of ice cream once a week. I've found it helps me stay on track (working hard) all week ~ we burn off the sugars quicker than the fats, so I limit those too. Good luck!

  45. QUESTION:
    I changed my diet, and started exercising 3-4 times a week, what can i do to speed up my weight loss?
    I'm a 20 yr old female, and I'm pretty heavy. It's always been a problem for me but recently something snapped and made me really upset about it so I'm doing my best to keep motivated to look better... and maybe even more important feel better, I'm just done being overweight and unattractive.
    My diet before was full of fast food and junk, so changing that, although a little hard is definitely seeming worth it already. I mainly buy fruits and vegetables and more fresh stuff in general. No chips/candy/soda, but im not on any sort of diet plan or anything. I do have a thyroid problem-- hypothyroidism, which I am on medication for, and recently I signed up for the gym and I've been doing an hour of cardio every other day for almost 2 weeks now.
    So far I've lost about 6 lbs. which is good. and i know if i keep going it'll keep coming off, but i was hoping maybe there is something, like a specific diet plan, or maybe a natural sort of diet pill, maybe even a different way to exercise, that could help speed my weight loss along a bit?
    ANY suggestions would be great!

    • ANSWER:
      Well you've done a swell job of cutting back on junk food. Most people can't even take that step...so GOOD job!

      Definitely stay with the Natural stuff, even though it's tempting to have a go at the sugary food.

      I would recommend that you use some herbs like Cinnamon (help with thyroidism), Green Tea, and black seeds.

      As for exercise, you don't need to be hardcore...just start by walking 2-4 miles a day (or bicycle 3-5 miles)...keep a bottle of water with you to hydrate yourself.

      There's so much more I can talk about. If you need to know more, just ask me..or go to this site

  46. QUESTION:
    What is the best diet/combined w/exercise-to lose weight fast?
    I am desperate to lose the holiday pounds I have packed on...I have done Atkins in the past for a quick weight loss-but I know that is not a very sensible or smart diet-however I did see results quickly. I didnt gorge myself on butter and bacon-but I did eliminate the carbs. One of the other issues that I did have w/Atkins was that you couldnt eat fruit-which I love--esp bananas,berries and strawberries. I get so confused with what is a good carb or not. Some diets have you eating fruit and maybe some whole grain toast for breakfast-Atkins says eat bacon, butter and cheese----and I know that cant be good!!!
    I like Vietnamese and Thai foods,which of course have a lot of noodles.I also love all kinds of salads and vegetables I also work a 5am -2pm shift--so my meal times are kinda messed up. I do try to walk at least 3 miles a day 4 times a week and am working on doing that more often.
    Does anyone have any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      As healthy as fruit may be, fructose, the sugar in many fruits is the most lipogenic (fat producing) carb. Many veg are just as healthy as fruit without sugar. Berries are allowed on Atkins after 6 weeks & other fruit after 9 weeks.

      There is no better way to bring the body to the state of optimal health than with a low carb way of eating. Low carb doesn't cause high blood pressure, high blood sugar or high cholesterol, it cures it. It is actually dangerous to take meds that lower these levels and do low carb at the same time because the levels will become dangerously low. Carbohydrates trigger insulin. High insulin levels unbalance other hormones. Anything less that 9 grams of carbs per hour controls insulin and is considered low carb (up to 144 grams per day).

      U.S. government guidelines were changed 35 years ago to suggest we lower our fat intake & increase our carb intake. American society followed these recommendations & lowered their fat intake by 11% & increased their carb consumption. In this same time frame obesity, diabetes, heart disease are all at epidemic levels. Through their direct effects on insulin & blood sugar, refined carbohydrates are the dietary cause of coronary heart disease & diabetes.

      A low carbohydrate diet is a high fat diet. The protein should only be a little higher than adequate. Although it is completely possible to live on a fat/protein only diet for long term (as proven by research done in a hospital setting) it becomes boring fairly quickly. Luckily many vegetables & some fruits, nuts & seeds are low in carbs & greatly expand the diet. Most long term low carbers eat as many, if not more non starchy vegetables than vegetarians.

      Glucose is the bodies preferred fuel (if you want to get technical, it actually burns alcohol most efficiently, but that doesn't make it any healthier for the body than carbs), the body can convert 100% of carbs, 58% of protein & 10% of dietary fat into glucose. The body can also be fueled by fat (dietary fat & fat cells) but only in the absence of carbs. Your brain actually prefers* to be fueled by ketones (part of the fat burning process), it does require glucose also, but glucose can be easily converted from excess protein if needed or dietary fat.

      Plaque build up in the arteries is more attributable to carb consumption than dietary fats, which seems to be the conclusion of the following study. Carb consumption raises triglycerides & VLDL (bad cholesterol). Fats raise the HDL (good cholesterol). High triglyceride levels & low HDL levels are an indicator of plaque & glycation - the precursors to a heart attack & heart disease.

      study from the Oxford group examining the postprandial (after-eating) effects of a low-fat vs. low-carbohydrate diet. (Roberts R et al, 2008)

      Postprandial lipoproteins, you'd think, would be plentiful after ingesting a large quantity of fat, since fat must be absorbed via chylomicrons into the bloodstream. But it's carbohydrates that figure most prominently in determining the pattern and magnitude of postprandial triglycerides and lipoproteins. Much of this effect develops by way of de novo lipogenesis, the generation of new lipoproteins like VLDL after carbohydrate ingestion.

      Gary Taubes who wrote "Good Calories, Bad Calories" spent 7 years going through all the studies over the last century & dividing up the real science from the faulty science & concluded that low carb was the best way to control insulin levels which balances out other hormones & allows the body to function properly.

      His main points are:

      1. Dietary fat, whether saturated or not, is not a cause of obesity, heart disease or any other chronic disease.

      2. The problem is refined carbs in diet, their effect on insulin secretion & the hormonal regulation of homeostasis.

      3. Sugars - sucrose, high-fructose corn syrup specifically - are particularly harmful, the combination of fructose & glucose simultaneously elevates insulin levels & overload liver with carbs.

      4. Through their direct effects on insulin & blood sugar, refined carbs, starches, sugars are the dietary cause of coronary heart disease & diabetes. They are likely dietary causes of cancer, Alzheimer's & other diseases.

      5. Obesity is a disorder of excess fat accumulation, not overeating.

      6. Consuming excess calories does not cause us to grow fatter.

      7. Fattening & obesity are caused by an imbalance in the hormonal regulation of adipose tissue & fat metabolism.

      8. Insulin is the primary regulator of fat storage. When insulin levels fall, we release fat from fat tissue.

      9. By stimulating insulin secretion, carbs make us fat.

      10. By driving fat accumulation, carbs also increase hunger & decrease the amount of energy we expend in metabolism & physical activity.

  47. QUESTION:
    Going from a junk food king to a healthy diet?
    I'm a 6 foot 170 pound 17 year old active junior in High School preparing for my baseball season. I am a junk food king. I want to have a healthy and strong diet.

    Diet right now:
    On school days:
    -Breakfast: Chewy bar and maybe a clementine or other fruit.
    -Lunch: Maybe some chips or goldfish, usually a soda.
    -Throughout my classes: Maybe a bag of skittles and another soda.
    -After school: 2-3 out of the five days usually include a fast food meal.
    -Dinner: Depends. Sometimes pizza, sometimes steak, sometimes breakfast, sometimes a fast food meal.

    Weekends include a similar diet with munching on something throughout the day such as chips, pretzels, or candy.

    A huge problem of my diet is the obsession of soda and candy. I probably drink between a liter or two every day and sometimes more. Not including soda I would guess the total grams of sugar I consume per day would be around 150 grams, which is entirely too much and that's not including the sugar found in soda. I'm addicted, I try to deny it but I never seem to succeed.

    I work out almost every other day which helps keep me fit even without eating properly. However, I feel as if my unhealthy diet is keeping me from getting as strong as I can be.

    I want to look into eating things that include protein and healthy carbs to help maintain and strengthen my muscles. Any suggestions on what foods should I eat? (I don't like seafood by the way)

    I do not believe I will break my temptations for junk food and feel as if I will be able to change my diet without too many problems. I think the real problem I am having is knowing what my diet should consist of to fulfill my needs.

    Thanks for all your help and I can provide additional details if needed.

    • ANSWER:
      The only advise you need: STOP the sugar intake. A can of soda has more sugar than you need for a day. So if you drink a soda, everything you eat will just gather as fat.

  48. QUESTION:
    Does this diet plan sound good?
    Take a look at the diet plan below and tell me what you think.

    Rapid Weight Loss Plan

    General Information

    This diet is also a fast and is fat- burning. The key is that you will burn many more calories than you will take in. It will flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well- being. This diet does no lend itself to drinking any alcoholic beverages at any time b/c of the removal of fat build- up in your system. Go off the diet for at least twenty-hours before consuming any alcohol.

    Because each person's digestive system is different, this diet will not have the same effect on everyone. After three days, if you don't cheat, you will have more energy that before you began. After you have been on the diet for several days, you may find that your bowel movements have changed and you may need to eat a cup of bran or fiber. Although you can have black coffee with this plan, after the third day you may find that you don’t need the caffeine.

    The Basic Fat Burning Soup can and should be eaten anytime you feel hungry… eat as much as you want. Remember, the more of the soup you eat, the more you will lose.

    Definite no-no's on the plan are:
    • Breads
    • Alcohol
    • Carbonated drinks (including diet)
    • All fried foods
    This diet will not interfere with any prescribed medication. You can eat broiled chicken for the beef if you wish, but absolutely no skin on the chicken. If you wish you can substitute broiled fish for beef on one of the beef days. You need the high protein from beef on the other day. Continue this plan as long as you wish and feel better both mentally and physically.

    The Basic Fat Burning Soup

    6 large onions
    1 to 2 cans of tomatoes
    1 large head of cabbage
    2 green peppers
    I bunch of celery
    1 package of Lipton soup mix

    Season with salt, pepper, curry, parsley if desired, or bullion, or hot sauce.

    Cut vegetables in small to medium pieces and cover with water. Boil fast for ten minutes. Reduce to simmer and continue cooking until vegetables are tender. This soup can be eaten anytime you are hungry. Eat as much as you want, whenever you want as this soup will not add calories. The more you eat, the more you will lose. Fill a thermos in the morning if you will be away during the day. If eaten alone for an indefinite period of time, you would suffer malnutrition.
    Day 1
    All fruits except bananas. Cantaloupe and watermelon are lower in calories than most fruits. Eat only fruits with soup. For drinks, use unsweetened tea, cranberry juice or water

    Day 2
    All vegetables eat al the fresh, raw or canned vegetables until you are stuffed. Try to eat green, leafy veggies and stay away from dry beans, peas, corn. Eat them along with the soup. At dinner only on this day, reward yourself with a big baked potato and butter. Do not eat any fruits.

    Day 3
    Eat the soup, fruits and veggies you want. Do not have a baked potato.

    If you have eaten as specified for three days, and have not cheated, you will find you have lost between five to seven pounds.

    Day 4
    Bananas and skimmed milk. Eat as many as three bananas and drink as many glasses of water as you can, along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates as is the milk, but on this particular day your body will need potassium, carbohydrates, proteins and calcium to lessen you craving for sweets.

    Day 5
    Beef and vegetables. You may have 10 to 20 ounces of beef plus a can of tomatoes or as many as six fresh tomatoes on this day. Try to drink six to eight glasses of water to flush the uric acid from your body. Eat the soup at least once on this day.

    Day 6
    Beef and vegetables. Eat the beef and veggies to your hearts content on this day. You can even have two or three steaks if you like, with green, leafy veggies but no baked potato. Be sure to eat the soup at least one time.

    Day 7
    Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and veggies. Once again, eat all you want. Be sure to have the soup at least one time.

    At the end of the seventh day, you should have lost ten to seventeen pounds if you have not cheated. If you have lost more than fifteen pounds, stay off the diet for two days before resuming the diet from one day.

    This seven- day eating plan can be used as often as you like. If correctly followed, it will cleanse your system of impurities and make you feel better than ever.

    After only seven days, you will have an abundance of energy and will feel much lighter. Continue with the plan as long as you wish as feel the difference!

      Sounds bland. I wouldnt be able to stick to it. Good luck to you!

  49. QUESTION:
    Can I diet while running?
    I want to lose like 10 pounds, and I've seen some diets that are 2 or 3 days long to lose weight quick (like a few pounds in a couple days). They are the kind of diets when you detoxify your body and eat certain foods. One is a 3 day diet. 1st day is fasting, second is eating only fruit, third is only vegetables.
    I know that when you lose weight, it makes you a faster runner. But should I go on this diet while I'm running? The next practice is really easy, but i'm worried about how not eating carbs will affect me.

    Should I go ahead and try it?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi!
      I'm actually on a similar dilemma, as I've been running for two weeks, and have PLATEAUED on my diet since I started.
      I've been on Medifast, which is actually the best diet I've ever been on--but now that I'm excersising, I've lost nothing.

      This is my issue. When we diet, no matter WHAT diet we're on, we'll be feeling the effects of fatigue and hunger. So, when you push yourself to run, your body will feel sluggish to begin with. On TOP of that, your mussels will feel the effects of loss of potassium because of your diet, and will cramp pretty badly.
      I'd say, based on my own experiences-- for your first day of dieting, I'd stick to yoga and other such stretching/toning exercises--maybe even swimming vs. running. AFTER your 3-day, you should start running, once protein is back in the picture, and you've jump-started weightloss.
      I wish you luck...I'm doing this, not only for a change of lifestyle and body image, but for a change in careers. I'm working on acceptance into the Navy OCS school...and AM NOT READY YET! =-)

      Forget all those other recommended diets. If you're really ready to invest in loosing weight and NOT being hungry while doing it, try the diet that John Hopkin's University Hospital recommends: Medifast.

  50. QUESTION:
    Recommended Pre fast/pure detox diet for a guy.?
    I'm a young guy and recently I've decided to undergo an extended fast in order to quit smoking, (3 years, pack a day) as well as to regain my old level of health.

    I was curious what my regular diet should be leading up to that, I'm not picky at all about what I eat (I had my fun over the holidays and willpower isn't an issue).

    Doesn't really matter how awful it tastes, I'm just looking at food as fuel for the time, I just need the absolute healthiest way to go about things for before and after the fast.

    I've heard raw vegetables and fruits are the way to go (although not sure which ones) and have just been eating those for the last few days, but feels like I'm missing quite a bit in my diet.

    Anyways, any recommendations would be great.
    I've heard pretty good things about that lemonade drink, but I was planning on a straight water fast.

    Also, I would prefer not to take any kits/vitamins/pills/etc.

    as for red meat, I've completely given up meat of all sorts. (I used to eat steak regularly, and love it, but was impressed with how I felt after abstaining from it for a while)

    This isn't for weight loss (I'm 6"2 and 200 pounds), although I'd expect it would be a nice side effect of a new diet. Moreso I want to increase my energy level, alertness, and clarity while getting back in shape.

    this is in preparation for me doing some traveling later this year, and needing to be in absolute top condition.

    • ANSWER:
      Try a strict vegetarian diet for the duration -- you're already halfway there :) . It's difficult to get all the protein, calcium and iron you need eating just fruits and vegetables, so you'll want to be sure to add some beans, soy products and grains, too. This is what the vegan food pyramid says we should have daily:

      *2-4 servings fruit
      *3-5 servings vegetables (one of which should be 1 cup of dark leafy greens for calcium)
      *2-3 servings beans (black, kidney, garbanzo, pinto, etc) and/or soy products (tofu, tempeh, TVP, veggie burgers)
      *2-3 servings fortified dairy substitutes (i.e. soy, almond or rice milk, soy yogurt, veggie cheese)
      *6-11 servings whole grains, rice, bread, pasta cereal etc.
      *0-1 servings vegetables oils, fats, sweets, nuts
      *8-10 glasses of water

      If you can afford it, buying organic will help with the detoxification process (think pesticides). Avoiding all the hormones and antibiotics in meat and dairy products goes a very long way to make a person feel clean on the inside.

      As for the best fruits and vegetables -- pretty much any are good so long as you get a variety. Go for the rainbow of colors every day if you can -- reds in berries and tomatoes, yellows in peaches and corn, oranges in carrots and sweet potatoes, greens in broccoli and collards, blues in berries and 'red' cabbage and so on.

      Sometimes when vegetables are cooked the live enzymes in them are denatured and mild toxins are released. Eating them in their raw state can help the detoxing process.

      After the detox and quitting smoking, you're going to feel awesome! Good luck with everything!


3 Day Fast Diet Plan

Want to lose weight fast? A 3 day diet is perfect if you need to lose weight for a special occasion, like a wedding, or a graduation, or even a job interview. Depending on how much you weigh now, you can lose five to seven pounds.

This weight loss can help you to look great on your special day because your clothes fit well. A 3 day diet can also motivate you to keep on losing weight. However, be aware that you should never stay on one of these diets for longer than three days -- they can harm your health.

Aim to eat around 1000 calories a day for the three days -- if you don't have a calorie counter, get one before you start.

Big tip: go on this diet during the work week. You'll be busy, and won't have time to spend thinking about food.

    The 3 day diet plan that makes you lose 10lbs a week?
    Alright i want to lose weight so i can be faster and move agile in football for my Jr. High team. I started this diet hoping for it to help me "Lose 10 pounds in 3 days" I've been doing the Plan Exactly except when it says drink black coffee, i drink Oolong tea, (an asian tea that is supposed to burn fat) Everything else has been pretty much perfect. Like i said i work out everyday so im exercising which i though would make me lose MORE weight, but so far i haven't lost ANY!!! I was wanting some pointers on when this will work. Oh yea, what should i eat when the 3 days is over?

    • ANSWER:
      that diet is a bunch of bull shit. ll you are losing is water and possibly muscle. avoid fast food and any other eating out. eat 25-35 percent non saturated fat 35-45 percent protein an 45-65 percent carbs. talk to a nutrition teacher at your campus for more specifics. all hose pils you see being advertised DONT work and are dangerous.

  8. QUESTION:
    Is this an ok 3 day diet?
    Ok well i was going to do just a 3 day water fast, but my mother refuses to let me eat nothing. So I said that I would just eat a total of 500 calories a day for those three days, drinking just water. All i have had to eat was 4 spoons on raisin brand cereal with soy milk, 10 rits crackers, and some wheat bread. I'd say altogether that was about 320 calories or more and I have drank a lot of water today( I have a 64oz bottle). Tomorrow and the following days I plan on having 5 crackers for breakfast lunch, and dinner along with maybe some veggies and fruit added in. I plan on working out at least 2 hours a day.
    Also I do not need any lectures from anybody on how you think I am being unhealthy because I really don't care about what you have to say, just flat out excising is not working for me at all, might as well do it the easy way.
    @Kate- I don't see how.

  9. QUESTION:
    Going to start a new diet and exercise routine. Is it okay to do a 3-day fast?
    Just to start off I'm not planning to starve myself forever or hoping for some magical weight loss trick!

    Usually I eat whatever I want (not healthy stuff) and exercise whenever I can (1-2 times a week). I'm not really overweight or anything. I just want to lose about 15 pounds, so I'm going to start eating healthy and exercising 3-5 times a week. I plan to start this Monday, and
    1)I wanted to know if it's okay to do a 3-day fast from Friday- Sunday?
    I know if you starve yourself for long periods of time your body goes into starvation mode and that's not good either.
    2) Will I still gain the weight I lost during the fast, if I start to eat healthy and exercising?
    3) Is it worth doing it?
    4) What can I expect?
    I was basically just going to drink a slim fast around 2pm and then another one around 6pm (380) calories total.
    5)Is that okay for a fast?
    6)Any tips or other info?
    Thanks!
    Oh some other questions I just thought of
    7) Should I try to be active? If so how active?
    8) Should I drink a lot of water?

    • ANSWER:
      I don't really see why you need to do a fast and I think it's absolutely not worth it. It's hard enough to start a new, healthy regime. Why make yourself feel like crap? Only 380 calories every day for three days in a row is a recipe for feeling awful, if you ask me. Headaches, light-headedness, feeling cranky, tired, irritable, and possibly even dizzy (low blood sugar) and experiencing heart palpitations due to mineral or electrolyte imbalances. And yes, it's entirely possible that you will be so starving by Monday that you'll eat lots to make up for your three days of eating virtually nothing--and there goes your new plan. These kind of extreme measures sound like the first step to an eating disorder and in my opinion it's best to avoid it. Even if you were overweight (which you admit you are not), starving yourself, even for "only" three days, is no way to get healthy. Your body knows when something bad is happening to it and will set off all kinds of alarms to try to get you to stop.

      If I were you, I'd consult your doctor, a nutritionist, or even a school nurse (if you are in school) for help designing a new eating plan: I strongly urge you to do this. Making sure you get enough good fats (avocado, nuts, olive oil, etc.), protein (lean fish, chicken, beef, etc. or beans if vegetarian), and complex carbohydrates (whole grain breads and pastas, brown rice, etc.) and lots and lots and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables is a much saner way to be healthy--these are the building blocks of a good diet. And drinking lots of water to stay hydrated is always a good idea.

      If you feel generally gross right now or bloated and want to "cleanse" or take a break from junk--there's not need to do anything drastic. Try eating no sugar for three days, but instead eat a healthy diet with sufficient calories for your current weight with lots of fresh veggies, fruit and fiber (along with your protein, fats, carbs) and drinking lots of water (perhaps with lemon). See how you feel after three days--that might be enough to make you feel better and more energetic. Probiotics (the healthy bacteria in yogurt) can also help with bloating and digestive issues, if you are simply "feeling" fat or the ill effects of too much processed food.

  11. QUESTION:
    Will I get weight loss results with this diet and exercise plan?
    Will I get weight loss results with this diet and exercise plan?

    Every day I will eat the same thing.
    Breakfast: A single piece of fruit (banana, apple, pear, mango etc)
    Lunch: Crystal light drink
    Dinner: One piece of whole wheat toast plain

    I'll probably fast 1-3 days out of the week as well.

    Exercise: 300 jumping jacks, 100 situps/crunches, 50 squats.

    • ANSWER:
      You'll only lose muscle mass because that's what your body will eat up first for energy, not you fat. You're eating next to nothing. You'll either fail miserably or pass out and could end up in the hospital. You need to eat to lose weight not starve.

      - abdominal workouts ( crunches, sit-ups, etc..)

      Meal Plan-
      ( 900- 1100 calarie intake for fast and safe- dieting)

      Breakfast- 3/4 of high fibre cearal ( mini wheats, cherrios, bran-flakes, special K, etc..) with skim milk, and fruits and nuts added with it.

      Snack- fruit,

      alternative- 100 calarie snack packs ( comes in cookies, chips, cheetos, bars etc..)

      Lunch- 2 slices of whole wheat bread, with 2 slices of lean turkey breast, lettuse, tomatoe, and frenches mustard ( 0 calaries) - No mayo!
      And also have a sugar-free jello which is only 5 calaries, and some berries.

      Snack- fruit

      Alternative- 100 calarie snack packs ( comes in chips, doritos, cheetos, cookies, bars, etc.. )

      Dinner- Grilled chicken/ salmon, with 1 1/2 cups of vegetables.

      Alternative- Lean cusine frozen entree , or wholesome advantage frozen entree ( under 270 calaries )

      Goodluck!
      And I hope this helps it worked for me!

  13. QUESTION:
    Could the 3-day Acne fast by Chris Gibson work?
    I'm a 24 year old male whose tried everything except accutane. I'm from the UK and my GP wont allow me to see a derm or go on accutane because he says my acne isn't too bad. Last year I tried the 3 day acne fast by chris gibson. It was challenging but i was willing to try anything to beat my acne which i have had for more than 10 years.

    To be honest, I stuck to the diet eating apples and drinking water, even doing an enema every night for three days. At the end of the three days, I broke my diet by having a drink with some of my friends. Yes, i know i wasn't supposed to but i didnn't think that such a small thing could ruin everything if it was supposed to be the real trick. Anyways, the end result was that nothing happened. All i did was lose 7 pounds (which isn't really a good thing because I'm a pretty skinny person and a hard gainer). I was really dissapointed because i felt that I was just going to have to live with acne until it got replaced by wrinkles. I went back on minocycline as prescribed by my GP and drank water. I have the type of acne which is a everlong rash paired with one or two pimples. Anyways, something interesting happend.

    I was doing a university project and travelled to Sierra Leone in Africa for about a month. I forgot my medication and was thinking that I was going to suffer a serious break out. But suprisingly, even though I wasn't taking pills or using some sort of a cleanser, my acne didn't get particularly worse. I just had the same rash and occasional pimple. I don't know if it was the change of diet, or type of food i was having there (i didn't even fast), but for the first time in ten years, there was no desperate need to have acne pills or cleansers. I've been off any sort of remedy for about a year now but I still have a rash and pimples here and there. I don't have any particular diet but I'm planning one. You see, i started thinking, if my face doesn't break out particularly bad when I'm off any sort of medication.

    There must be some internal way of getting rid of this acne and rash permanently without using cleansers. Mind you, i've had the same rash for 10 years so my face has never been spotless. I read in a biography that Michael Jackson cleared his early-adult acne by going on a serious detox. The author said that it was the reason he used to be extremly thin in the thriller days. Anywayays, although the 3-day-acne diet detox didn't do much for me. I'm considering going on it for again and sticking to some sort of a diet with little sugar. I also can't insist that I'll stick to a strict diet forver. Let's be real, someone can't stick to apples, no sugar and soda forever. I'm not saying that a regular diet won't help, but most of my friends feast on ice-cream, sugars, meat and beers and remain practically spotless. I was wondering if the 3-day acne fast, paired with a regular diet clean of sugars and wheat is likely to help remove the root cause of my acne and clear this annoying rash once and for all. I wouldn't mind if I had to do it like twice a year. Chris Gibson's theory is that adult acne's caused by candida.

    It makes sense that there's some sort of feature which is higher in a person with adult acne than one without adult acne because it seems we (acne-sufferers) are very sensitve to sugary foods where as other people can live off them without getting a pimple.

    So to summarize, what I'm asking is after doing the 3 day acne fast and not getting satisfactory results the first time. Could it cure my adult acne from the source if i do it perhaps twice a year and stick to a relatively sugar-free diet for about a following the 3-day-apple and water detox?

    • ANSWER:
      Eat smaller portions. This way, your body starts to increase its metabolism so that calories are burned faster. Also, small meals can prevent overeating.
      Stop eating just when you feel you are not as hungry, don't keep on eating till you feel full

      --------------
      Eat:
      Plenty of Cucumbers: it takes more calories to digest cucumbers than the calories you can obtain from it, it also give you clean, easy way of filling full.
      Grapefruit juice: when eaten with protein, triggers fat burning and causes weight loss.

      ----------------------

      Believe in a target weight you want to achieve and weigh yourself twice a day, be encouraged from the progress.

      Set a daily goal for 1 Pound or 2 you want to loose. When you do not achieve your daily goal, just eat way less at that day just to keep the same paste of weight loosing.

      -----------------

      Start the diet at the supermarket. Keep stocked with healthy food and you'll be less likely to run out for high calorie junk food.

  16. QUESTION:
    Which diet plan? Lean Cuisine, Slim Fast, NutriSystem, etc?
    I have been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism over a year ago and further diagnosed with Hashimoto's just a couple months ago... I have worked very hard on having a balanced diet and eating a lower calorie diet (varying between 1000 & 1300), yet my weight continued to climb... I have ended up gaining 25 pounds in just one year, partly due to stress I believe. I have even tried increasing the amount of aerobic and strength training I do in a day... well, as a result, I have gained 5 more pounds and now I'm up 30 pounds! Has anyone had success with meal plans actually working? Lean Cuisine, Smart Ones, Weight Watchers, Slim Fast, Jenny Craig, NutriSystem, etc?
    1 day ago - 3 days left to answer.
    Additional Details
    Hashimoto's isn't a diabetic condition.
    I am currently under the care of an endocrinologist and on hormone replacement (Synthroid). I feel the healthiest I have been in quite a while! minus the weight problem...

    • ANSWER:
      I have been through it all and know what's it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can't be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I've worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

      Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

      First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can't eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising...

      This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it's good for the heart.

      However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It's so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I've found a great addition to help any one out, it's a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don't get all crazy on me and say diet pills don't work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn't meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It's an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace.com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it's the best pill I've tried and I've tried cupboards full. Now this doesn't mean you have to follow my foot steps but I've successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

      Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

  17. QUESTION:
    Does the Slim Fast 3-2-1 Diet work?
    This diet plan seems very appealing because you get 6 meals a day (not very big of course, but it does include snacking).

    If it does work, on average how much does a woman lose in a week?

    Has anyone actually tried it? Results?

    • ANSWER:
      Most "balanced" diets work as long as you stick to them. Slimfast 3-2-1 tries to incorporate fruits and veggies with the snacks and the 500 calorie meal. This diet can work and you will lose about 2 pounds on average per week. It is important to incorporate exercise as well. This can increase fat loss. I am currently following this diet and have lost 1-3 pounds per week. I am also exercising so the gain of muscle makes the scale read that not as much weight is being lost.

  19. QUESTION:
    I need a diet plan that will help jump start my weight loss FAST!?
    I'm 21 years old and 5'6. I currently weigh around 130. Up until my senior year of high school I had always been a size 00 to a 0. I gained weight right before senior year and became a size 3. Doesn't sound so bad, except I don't have hips, and all my weight goes to my lower belly and I look like I'm pregnant.
    Ever since losing my full time job about a year ago and having only been working part time recently, I've packed on the pounds. I'm home most hours of the day and find myself eating whatever junk we have in the kitchen out of boredom. I have little energy and no desire to exercise. My diet includes fast food and boxed dinners, to frozen dinners and little or no vegetables. I am now the heaviest I have ever been and wear a size 5.

    I need a diet that will jump start my weight loss (something that lasts a week or two) so I can go from there with eating healthy and doing some light exercising.

    • ANSWER:
      Here is a day. Message me for a week. Mark me as best answer for a month plan.

      One day meal plan:

      Breakfast - Smoothie with 1 cup of mixed berries, half a cup of milk, half a cup of ice cubes, and 1-1 and 1/2 scoops of protein powder. I use power bar vanilla flavor.

      Snack 1 - Protein bar. I use "23 grams of protein".

      Lunch - Sandwich with low fat meat, low sodium cheese, and whole wheat bread. Vegetables, or salad with low fat dressing.

      Snack 2 - Cooked soy nuts (salt them to add flavor).

      Dinner Option 1 - Cooked fish (halibut preferably) with low fat lemon sauce and long grain rice, plus mixed vegetables or salad. Add bread or a roll if you need more calories.

      Dinner Option 2 - Hard noodles that you boil, plus low fat meat sauce or tomato sauce. If neither appeals to you add pesto sauce. Plus bread or a roll for extra calories.

      Remember to drink 64 ounces of water per day, approximately 8 large glasses. This helps to make you feel full, quench thirst, and flush out any bad stuff inside you.

      This meal plan will not only help you build the muscle that you want, but shed any fat off you may have.

      Goodluck on your diet.

      In my opinion, you are having too many carbs (brown bread) and not enough of fruit, fresh veggies, & protein.

      Also, is the juice bottled? Bottled juice has alot of additives and sugar. Try making your own.

  23. QUESTION:
    Does this diet plan sound good?
    Take a look at the diet plan below and tell me what you think.

    Rapid Weight Loss Plan

    General Information

    This diet is also a fast and is fat- burning. The key is that you will burn many more calories than you will take in. It will flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well- being. This diet does no lend itself to drinking any alcoholic beverages at any time b/c of the removal of fat build- up in your system. Go off the diet for at least twenty-hours before consuming any alcohol.

    Because each person's digestive system is different, this diet will not have the same effect on everyone. After three days, if you don't cheat, you will have more energy that before you began. After you have been on the diet for several days, you may find that your bowel movements have changed and you may need to eat a cup of bran or fiber. Although you can have black coffee with this plan, after the third day you may find that you don’t need the caffeine.

    The Basic Fat Burning Soup can and should be eaten anytime you feel hungry… eat as much as you want. Remember, the more of the soup you eat, the more you will lose.

    Definite no-no's on the plan are:
    • Breads
    • Alcohol
    • Carbonated drinks (including diet)
    • All fried foods
    This diet will not interfere with any prescribed medication. You can eat broiled chicken for the beef if you wish, but absolutely no skin on the chicken. If you wish you can substitute broiled fish for beef on one of the beef days. You need the high protein from beef on the other day. Continue this plan as long as you wish and feel better both mentally and physically.

    The Basic Fat Burning Soup

    6 large onions
    1 to 2 cans of tomatoes
    1 large head of cabbage
    2 green peppers
    I bunch of celery
    1 package of Lipton soup mix

    Season with salt, pepper, curry, parsley if desired, or bullion, or hot sauce.

    Cut vegetables in small to medium pieces and cover with water. Boil fast for ten minutes. Reduce to simmer and continue cooking until vegetables are tender. This soup can be eaten anytime you are hungry. Eat as much as you want, whenever you want as this soup will not add calories. The more you eat, the more you will lose. Fill a thermos in the morning if you will be away during the day. If eaten alone for an indefinite period of time, you would suffer malnutrition.
    Day 1
    All fruits except bananas. Cantaloupe and watermelon are lower in calories than most fruits. Eat only fruits with soup. For drinks, use unsweetened tea, cranberry juice or water

    Day 2
    All vegetables eat al the fresh, raw or canned vegetables until you are stuffed. Try to eat green, leafy veggies and stay away from dry beans, peas, corn. Eat them along with the soup. At dinner only on this day, reward yourself with a big baked potato and butter. Do not eat any fruits.

    Day 3
    Eat the soup, fruits and veggies you want. Do not have a baked potato.

    If you have eaten as specified for three days, and have not cheated, you will find you have lost between five to seven pounds.

    Day 4
    Bananas and skimmed milk. Eat as many as three bananas and drink as many glasses of water as you can, along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates as is the milk, but on this particular day your body will need potassium, carbohydrates, proteins and calcium to lessen you craving for sweets.

    Day 5
    Beef and vegetables. You may have 10 to 20 ounces of beef plus a can of tomatoes or as many as six fresh tomatoes on this day. Try to drink six to eight glasses of water to flush the uric acid from your body. Eat the soup at least once on this day.

    Day 6
    Beef and vegetables. Eat the beef and veggies to your hearts content on this day. You can even have two or three steaks if you like, with green, leafy veggies but no baked potato. Be sure to eat the soup at least one time.

    Day 7
    Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and veggies. Once again, eat all you want. Be sure to have the soup at least one time.

    At the end of the seventh day, you should have lost ten to seventeen pounds if you have not cheated. If you have lost more than fifteen pounds, stay off the diet for two days before resuming the diet from one day.

    This seven- day eating plan can be used as often as you like. If correctly followed, it will cleanse your system of impurities and make you feel better than ever.

    After only seven days, you will have an abundance of energy and will feel much lighter. Continue with the plan as long as you wish as feel the difference!

    ok, so i've been eating around 1200-1500 calories and exercising 5-6 times a week for about 2 weeks, and i've lost about 3 pounds, but i'm looking for something to kind of help me drop some weight pretty fast (like 5+ lbs.) to "jump start" my weight loss and help keep me motivated. i only want to lose around 20-25 pounds, but i'm at the weight that my body seems to feel most comfortable at, so i'm having a kind of hard time getting below 157ish. what would happen if i only drink low carb, low sugar, low fat protein "shakes," with some milk and a little bit of natural peanut butter for fat? i've read that you shouldn't ever completely cut out fat, and that you need some when you're consuming a lot of protein. anyways, i'll also keep exercising, just not quite as much. how much weight do you think i can lose in 3, 4, and/or 5 days? will this help or not? i have pretty good eating habits already and i'm not worried about gaining the weight back after because i'll just gradually add in solid foods and up my calories and increases my exercise at the same time. is this a good plan? thanks!

    Best diet plan? How to loose weight fast? Sacred Heart Diet?
    I'm 5"2, 110lbs, 14 and I really want to loose some wright.
    But I have no motivation or will power, I try to eat healthily and do exercise but I always fall back into old habits even within a few days. But I really want to be thin. Not unhealthily thin, just a slimmer person and I want to loose my tummy and arm flab. :)

    I think I need a plan, that I can write down and stick on my wall or something, I just think it will help me stay at it for as long as I need.

    I do however want to go on some kind of well not crash, but speedy diet because I want to be slim before I enter high school early September. Would the Sacred Heart Diet work? Except chicken instead of beef.

    Any tips or anything? I really need help. Thank you <3

    I need a diet. Any fast ones?
    I'm 12, and I'd like to lose some weight. I need you guys to find me a diet plan (on a webpage) that's easy to follow. Remember, I'm 12 and the foods in my house are limited (because I don't grocery shop), so simple, household food diets would be great. I'd like it to help me lose around 4 lbs a week (I'm aware of weight rebound). Not the 3-day diet though, please!

    10 points to the diet that sounds the best! Thanks!
    Also, don't advertise your "Weight Loss Pills". I won't take any drugs.

      Calories cut, to I don't know 1000 calories a day.

  31. QUESTION:
    PLEASE check and see if diet plan I'm diong will help me lose weight fast!!!?
    I fast walk 30 min a day down my road which has 2 hills, I do the 8min ab workout daily, I eat 2 starches, 3 fruits, 2 dairy, 2 veggies, 3 meats, 1 fat....all about under 1200 calories a day. And LOTS of water. Is there anything else I can do to lose weight quicker I have a Party I'm going to in June 9, 2007 and I want to lose as much weight as I can ASAP. I have lost 10 pounds so far but still have along ways to go. I dont plan on meeting my goal by then.....but just wanting to lose as much as I can....PLEASE HELP ME OUT!!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Be sure not to overwork yourself... that seems kind of obsessive. My only suggestion would be to tone your body more by running instead of walking for 15-20 minutes... if you're gonna be losing weight that fast you should be really careful not to have saggy stuff left over, so work out harder. It might make the scale say youre losing it slower but that's just the muscle.

  32. QUESTION:
    I have been on a diet for 3 weeks and 2 days and a lost 10-15 pounds my pant are lose as ever?
    Is this good walkingabout 1.25 miles a day

    4 b-fast special k chcolate drizzle bar

    4 lunch special k chcolate peanut butter protein bar

    Sometimes i have a snack of a special k bar

    and 4 dinner small portions of what ever the family is having

    is this a good diet and exercise plan?
    But my dinners always have protein i eat like fish, chicken, or steak

    And the protein bar has protein

    so im not lacking protein

    • ANSWER:
      That's WAY too little! Special K bars are only 90 calories, and the protein bar is only 190.

      90 + 190 + 200 ( approximately) = 480
      Even with a K snack, it's only 570.

      And then by walking you're burning those very, very few calories.

      Look, an average woman needs about 2000 calories a day.
      A man needs 2500, and this is without exercise.
      Edit: Forgot to mention, these average calories is to keep your weight at a constant state. If you want to lose weight, eat a little less.

      Even so, the very, very least you should be eating a day is 800. Any less than that, and you're near the 'disease' of anorexia.

      It's very unhealthy to eat so little, and you will, if you haven't already, start eating away at the muscle as well as fat. (Unless you really are obese, then it will take a little longer.)

      I'm not saying go eat a cheeseburger.
      I mean
      Add some fruits, vegetables, or some healthy dairy (1% milk) to your diet. Some other healthy food, at least.

      Those bars aren't meant as meal replacements, there aren't enough vitamins, fiber or minerals in them to truely supplement you well..

      So, add more food (good, healthy food. Like for breakfast, have special K cereal with 1% milk and an apple or some other fruit. Make sure to eat only what the serving says to eat, though. )

      Spread out healthy snacks, like the 90 cal. bars you like so much, in between small meals. This will keep your metabolism going, so you burn calories all day.

      And excercise more. Get your heart rate up, and do some sort of thing that will build muscle. Crunches, squats, resistance bands. You can get plenty of these excercises online. The more muscle you have, the more calories you will be burning.

      This will more or less balance out to the results you were getting before, plus give you some tone to your body once the extra fat goes away. =D

    What is the best way for me to diet?
    I'm a 170 lb.15 year old girl.
    My Goal is 15-20 lbs lost per month.
    I'm a size 13/14 and i want to shrink down to a 7/8 or 5/6.
    I don't want my cup size (C) to shrink.
    && For my rear well i won't mind if it shrunk a little.

    I've tried and succeeded in fast diets, but i always end up gaining the weight back.

    I already know the basics such as;
    - Drink tons of water
    - No Fast food, no pop, no candy, no snacks.
    - exercise consistently
    (for this i could walk 20-25 minutes after school once a day for five days; problem is winter is coming up and i get sick easily)
    - Limit to 3-4 Meals a day.

    My Diet Plan:
    I was thinking that for my lunch at school, i'll eat an apple.
    When i return from school, i would walk to my house. (which i do occasionally)
    Then when i get home i'll have veggies or soup (cabbage?)
    ^^^ Would this work? Any suggestions or Objections; Exercises; Tricks or tips? Let me know please!

    • ANSWER:
      diets are hard to stick to and you usually gain the weight back as you mentioned. the best way to lose weight is exercise, and lots of it. of course you ahve to curb your eating habits and eat healthier.and i dont think that 20-25 minutes a day from school is enough if you want to lose 15-20 pounds per month. of course in the winter you could do exercises inside. go to the gym? harder in the winter but running is great way to get into shape and lose wieght

    Im 15 years old.
    I weigh 220 Pounds.
    I go to the gym 6 to 5 days a week.
    -45 minutes of eliptical cardio. And 20 minutes of weight lifting.

    Im really trying to commit to this weight losing thing, and i know my eating diet plan is important.
    But i would like suggestions on Meals/Snacks that i should consume, and help me eating healthy.

    Drink: Anything really but soda and juices with high callories.

    After A Nights Workout: Il eat a banana with a cup of milk. Or i will just have a fruit cup.

    What are also extra tips to lose weight quicker?

    • ANSWER:
      Keep calories high, drink plenty of water, egg yolks are the most nutritious part. You will lose more body fat eating protein and fat (don't eat protein alone) than not eating AT ALL. To lose weight fast eat all you want but nothing but meat, eggs, healthy oils, mayo, butter and half an avocado a day (you'll need added potassium). Keep the calories high and the fat percentage high, at least 65% of calories. Adding in green vegetables & some cheese will continue weight loss but at a slower pace.

      If you starve yourself by lowering calories lower than are needed for the body to function, your body will freak out and will want to store every ounce in case it doesn't get nourished again. You need to give it adequate nourishment so it doesn't slow your metabolism down to adjust for lower calories.

      Simple carbohydrates (sugar, flour, bread, cereal, pasta, potatoes, rice) triggers insulin which can store the calories you eat into fat. The more protein you eat the more the fat burning hormone glucagon is released. The more carbohydrate you eat the more the fat storage hormone insulin is released.

      Carbs are addictive and can be disastrous to our health. The best way to break the addiction is NO carbs for 3 days. Make a huge batch of deviled eggs and eat one every time you want "something" have huge omelets for breakfast, with bacon, a lil onion, peppers, mushrooms & cheese. Pork chops for lunch. Get pork rinds and eat them with tuna salad. Steak for dinner. Make a huge sugar free cheese cake for dessert. Eat so much you won't feel deprived of anything. By the fourth day, your addiction will be gone and you can start making healthy choices.

      High insulin levels unbalance other hormones. Controlling your insulin level will balance out other hormones & allow human growth hormone (HGH) to be produced naturally so you will gain lean muscle even without exercise. Any exercise will greatly increase your muscle mass with high HGH levels.

      Dr.Atkins was a cardiologist, low carb was a health plan easier sold as a "diet" Read any of his books for easily understandable science. Lutz "Life without Bread" & Taubes "Good calorie, bad calorie" are excellent books that dispel all the nutrition myths.

      Reducing body fat and increasing muscle mass will have you in awesome shape in no time. Good luck!

  42. QUESTION:
    Please tell me the health risks and how fast i will get results on my diet plan/workout plan?
    My daily diet as of one week, No Breakfast
    Lunch- Caprisun Juice pack
    Water and Cheetos-120 calories. 90 calories from fat.

    Dinner- Usually 2 apples, an orange and a little bread of bread. Alot of water.

    I'm burning about 600 calories in school and 600 out.
    I run 3 miles on average a day, i go to the weightroom and i'm on P90x

    I'm not fat but i have a "Doughnut" shaped belly and i need to get rid of that. Before i could do ab workouts to target my core i have to lose the layer of fat over it. Please tell me how long it will take to be completely rid of that "doughnut" with my plans and the riskss Thanks! 10 points

    • ANSWER:
      Your diet is horrible. Risks would be your body consuming its own muscle and then eventually your organs failing. Extreme fatigue, headaches, nausea, depression possibly as well.
      And once you start eating normally again, you're going to gain all the weight back and end up a yo-yo dieter which just ruins your organs.

      You should be having 5 small meals a day (that add up to 1400-1700 calories or so since you get a lot of exercise) or 3 slightly larger ones and you need protein/calcium.

      I don't even understand how you could think what you eat is acceptable, I'd almost say see a counsellor about anorexia.

  43. QUESTION:
    What is a good diet plan to help make my metabolism faster?
    I was wondering how to make my metabolism faster/ stronger so what types of foods should i eat more of? how should i eat throughout the day, 3 good meals or small meals throughout the day or what? what foods should i stay away from?
    *im not looking to cut anything out like sugar or carbs or anything*

    • ANSWER:
      eat a decent breakfast if you skip breakfast you brain will panic thinking it needs to conserve energy/calories. it will slow down your metabolism.

      eating 5 or 6 smaller 200 cal meals will help keep you metabolism running smoother than eating 2 - 500 cal meals

      do not eat after 5pm and do about 30 mins of exercise before bed you will go to bed with as few excess calories as possible and as you body functions (heart beating, organs working, etc) work at night you will burn 50-100 or more calories in your sleep and start the day that far ahead in your game

    I'm 16 years old, about 5 foot 5 and 130 pounds about.. want to lose at least 20

    • ANSWER:
      -Don't eat Cheerios, or any breakfast cereals, there's just way too many refined carbs in cereal. And to break a fast with something like that, you will tend to put on weight, or resist losing it at least. Same with pancakes, waffles, muffins, bagels, etc.

      -Fruit is good, but veggies are better. You get all that fiber and nutrients, but without the sugar. Now don't get me wrong, fruit is healthy, just don't neglect the veggies too. Snap peas make lovely snacks. Avoiding cookies is a good plan. But I hope you're not planning to substitute lunch with just a piece of fruit, you really do need to eat more than that for lunch.

      -It's hard to quit soda that easily. I suggest you take it down slowly. Like, if you drink two a day now, take it down to one a day for like 3 days, and then every other day, and then down to only a few a week. It'll be easier.

      -You don't need to set aside specific days to allow junk food. Just keep track of your calories and carbs, if you're at the point where you'll have less than 1500 calories a day, and less than 100-150 carbs, allow yourself a treat, there's nothing wrong with that. Just not in the morning or right before bed. I eat junk food almost every day, and following that rule, I've been consistently losing weight for a month or two (I've dropped 30 lbs). I just don't eat a lot of it, or when I've already had too many calories or carbs.

      -Yes, water is perfect. You don't need soda or sports drinks. Not even when you're doing sports, not unless you're a marathon runner. You don't need sports drinks to play tennis. Not unless you're at the pro level, probably not even then. But don't forget about the other beverages you can have! Your drinks don't have to consist of nothing but water. Unsweetened iced tea only has like 5 calories a glass, no carbs. You can drink all the tea you want. Plain coffee too. But even with a bit of milk and sugar coffee isn't a big dent. You'll feel less restricted if you explore very low, or calorie free drinks too. Just stay away from diet soda. That stuff is just awful for you; even worse than regular.

      -No. Caesar salads aren't as healthy as you'd think. All creamy dressings can really pack a punch. Anything with ranch or caesar dressing should throw up a red flag. Some of these salads can top at with the same sort of caloric, sodium, and carb damage as a Big Mac and large fry! Instead, eat salads with vinaigrette dressings, or skip the dressing all together. Load that salad up with lots of veggies, a little cheese, and a lot of meat instead.

      -As for fast food, it's not the enemy. You just have to know how to eat it without severely impact your calorie or carb count. You want a burger? Okay, get a regular cheeseburger, skip the fries, and drink water or unsweetened tea. You want those fries? Fine, take the bun off your burger, and have a noncaloric drink. Most fast food joints have alternative side dishes, like apple slices or "apple fries." Just don't eat any of the caramel dips. Now I'm not suggesting that it should be all you eat. But there's no reason you can't eat fast food weekly and lose weight. I do. You just have to keep the carbs and calories in check.

      -As for dinner, shouldn't be too hard. Generally, a portion of meat and a veggie is pretty standard (avoid potatoes. They're okay once in a while, but very high in carbs). You could have salads too. Stir fries are delicious, and tend to be very good for you (go easy on any sweet and sour sauce though). There's a lot of possibilities. Just avoid large portions of pasta, starches, and breads.

      And don't forget to work out! Get moving. Doesn't matter how. Go for walks after dinner. Go for bike rides. Get a gym membership. Go swimming. Whatever works for you. Just do it.

      But there's no way to pinpoint how much you'll lose. Shoot for no more than 1 or 2 lbs a week max though. Anything else is an unrealistic expectation, you might not even lose that fast. And that's okay.

  45. QUESTION:
    How fast will I lose about 50 pounds if I continue this workout/diet plan?
    Yoga: 30 minutes.
    Seal Lifts: 36.
    Leg Raises: 60.
    Standing Crunches: 60.
    Arm Circles: 90 forward, 90 backwards.
    Bent Over Rows: 90.
    Dead Lifts: 90.
    Side Bends: 90.
    Speed Walk: 1 1/2 miles.
    I do that every day.
    Once a week I go to an Olympic Sized Pool and swim for about 3 hours, doing laps(freestyle and backstroke) "weights" in the pool, and swimming on the boards kicking VERY quickly.

    My diet is pretty much the same- control portion sizes, don't eat bad stuff. My motto has been "I can always come back for more if I'm not full" Let me tell you, I've never had to go back. I also try to stay within 50-70 carbs a day, and I don't eat bread, pastas, fruit juice, or apples. I have 2 cups of salad a day with tuna or the protien.

    P.S- I've alewady been doing this workout plan for a couple weeks and have no trouble keeping up with it. It's just the eating part (which i put up a question about)

    • ANSWER:
      how fast can you loose 50lbs? it depends what weight and height you are right now...a healthy diet and excercise program should shed you 1 to 2 pounds per week. Good luck and keep up the good work!! Stay motivated by looking at old pictures of yourself or pictures of someone else that has the body you are striving for!

  46. QUESTION:
    will my diet plan work, how much will i lose? (PRO ANAS ONLY)?
    i am 5ft4, medium build (so i'm a bit underweight) weigh 103lbs and i am aiming to get to 93lbs for july. it doesn't matter if i get to like 95 or something, i don't mind. anyway.
    so far i have been eating under 500 cals (about 300 at the most) and exercising on the treadmill along with situps, for two days and lost 2lbs. basically, i have done lots of diets and i know what works and what doesn't - i'd just like some experience and advice (NO LECTURES, I KNOW IT'S NOT HEALTHY BUT I NEVER EAT OVER 500CALS, EVER, AND I NEED TO GET THIS LOW)

    KEEP IN MIND I AM A VEGETARIAN, WHEAT AND DAIRY INTOLERANT AND I DRINK ABOUT 2LITRES OF WATER A DAY.

    day 1 - 200cals, 50 sit ups in the morning, 20min work out on treadmill, 200 sit ups, 100 leg ups and exercise on my leg toner and another 5 minutes on the treadmill but at a run and real high incline.
    day 2 - 400 and the same work out
    day 3 - 600 and the same work out, maybe a bit more on the treadmill.
    day 4 - 0, work out but not as hard, i don't want to faint or anything, but perhaps a light hike would do and a few exercises that don't involve much moving, like a few sit ups and leg toners.

    repeat that but with a little more exercise.

    then move onto the russian gymnast diet for five days...

    Breakfast: glass of either orange or apple juice

    Lunch: Fruit Salad (made off kiwi fruit, orange, pineapple, and peeled apples)
    Glass of fruit juice (from one of the above fruits)

    Dinner: Glass of non pure water
    Green apple

    ....that for 5 days (i can lose between 5-11lbs, but seeing as i am already kind of underweight, i'm more likely to lose 5lbs)

    then a liquid fast for 2 days - i know that i would be depriving myself and will just binge if i just have water and juice, so i'll fast on soup, water, maybe a smoothie in the morning and so on.

    then slowly to stabalise it, so that i won't just put all the weight back on when i have finished the diets and go back to normal, i will eat 200 cals on fruit and veg for 2 days, then 300 for 2 days, then 400 for 2 then 500 and then stick to it and to how i feel comfortable.

    (ALL OF THIS WILL BE WITH THE EXERCISE MENTIONED ON THE FIRST PLAN)

    how much do you think i'd lose and how long would it take.
    please, no lectures. i get enough 'anorexic' comments, it hurts - it's like calling someone fat, if you get me? it's still picking at weight and hurts as much. so don't do it, just answer the question. nothing to say but lecture? don't waste your time. i won't listen.
    i don't say it to be offensive, honestly, if you were offended you would've seen it, rolled your eyes and ignored it and moved on. no need to comment. people are like this, there are people in this world who feel this way. i am sorry for your loss, it mustve been hard but if it's so hard, don't look at dieting sections or anything with pro ana.

    • ANSWER:
      No true anorexic is pro-ana. In fact they find it offensive to be pro their illness.
      I don't care what you do with your life, you can crash diet all you want, but how dare you be pro the illness that killed my best friend? That's so insulting.

    • ANSWER:
      What you need to do is ditch this Anne Collins thing and go to a weight loss spa. I went to Fitness Ridge Weight Loss Spa in St. George, UT and lost 34 pounds in 4 weeks. Great hiking and terrific staff.

      Stop wasting your time with this Anne Collins stuff.

  48. QUESTION:
    What do you make of this skinny girl diet plan?
    My friend was saying to me today she is going on this skinny girl diet so i had a little look to see what its about and this is what i got..

    Skinny girl diet
    Calories per day to follow
    Day 1 = 400 Day 16 = 300
    Day 2 = 300 Day 17 = 400
    Day 3 = 400 Day 18 = 450
    Day 4 = 500 Day 19 = 500
    Day 5 = 450 Day 20 = 650
    Day 6 = 650 Day 21 = 700
    Day 7 = 650 Day 22 = 400
    Day 8 = 400 Day 23 = 300
    Day 9 = 300 Day 24 = 450

    Day 15 = 400 Day 30 = FAST !!

    I think this doesn't look healthy what do you think?

    • ANSWER:
      The body will go into a starvation survival mode which means that the body will begin to eat up muscle tissue and the metabolism will slow up extremely. Unhealthy as well, will probably get quite sick. I'd say something to her.

  49. QUESTION:
    Diet plan to lose a lot of weight fast, please help?
    I want to lose 50 lbs in the next 5 months, which seems like a lot... I am extremely devout to it I just need to know how much I would need to do to take my way to there. So far I probably get about 2 hours of exercise a week, and want to start getting 2 hours a day of exercise. I don't eat anything until probably 3:00 PM which I usually have something small. Dinner I sometimes have a little bit, but depending on what it is I could go up to 3 plates of food.

    I digest quickly so I like to space my meals out. I can eat dinner until I am stuffed, then go and eat more 30 minutes later. So it is smarter to eat 3 small meals for each large meal instead or something. I don't know.

    I don't tend to like sports like basketball or anything, but I do like martial arts and I am going to take Okiniwan Karate as soon as I get my new job. Like I said before, I am devout to anything you will give me to do if it will work no matter how hard it is. But I do not have the capabilities of doing much activities that require other people, I am very unsocial and have nobody to do anything cooperative with. I can do solo things, running/jogging/training/etc..

    Thanks in advance for your help. If you need any more info I can add more.
    And I don't want those diet fads like Acaipure Berry or anything like that, I want straight forward exercise/eating plans. Thankyou.

    • ANSWER:
      You'll get a lot of people saying that is too much weight to lose in 5 months. That is hogwash. Your body wants to normalize and the more overwieight you are the easier and faster the weight will come off once you start doing the right things.

      For exercise, look into tabata or High Intensity Interval training (search youtube). Much less time spent for much greater results.

      What you eat is still the most important. Don't starve yourself cause you don't have to. If you eat right the pounds will melt off. Have balanced meals with a high protein source mixed with your carbs. Avoid empty calories like soda and other foods with no nutritional value. By eating meals with a good protein/carb mix you keep your sugar and insulin levels optimum and that will make your metabolism work at its optimum level. You can space the meals out into more smaller meals throughout the day but keep the meals smaller if you do that and most important avoid the junk food snacks, soda and other drinks with a lot of sugar and calories.

  50. QUESTION:
    Would this be an effective diet plan? How safe does it sound?
    I've learned that setting one-month plans works better for me verses one permanent plan. For the month of March I'm planning a diet plan where I eat fruit and vegetables (in any form, no added sugar) for two meals a day. I can add salad dressing (typically Good Seasonings), or a bit of oil, salt, pepper, etc to them. I can also have nuts and seeds (such as sunflower seeds in salads). For the third meal, I'm allowed a reasonable meal... such as 3 oz. of chicken with some seasoning or a veggie burger, half a cup of brown rice with salt and pepper, and more vegetables. Dessert is ALWAYS fruit.

    As far as drinks go, I can have water, vanilla soy milk (with my one non-veggie meal), tea (unsweetened, iced or hot... I'm allowing myself unsweetened peach iced tea from Dunkin Donuts as a treat).

    This will only last for a month. Afterwards, I will start allowing myself occasional treats for special occasions. I may also include "fast days" where I eat nothing but fruits and veggies... no oil, nuts, seeds, or anything other than salt and pepper may be added.

    I will mention that I will be eating a variety of fruits and veggies including (but not limited to):
    -Carrots
    -Broccoli
    -Cauliflower
    -Edamame
    -Apples
    -Strawberries
    -Peaches
    -Pears
    -Grapes
    -Oranges/Clementines
    -Cucumbers
    -Pickles (half-sour)
    -Black Olives
    -Tomatoes (in chili)
    -Onions
    -Legumes
    -Celery

    I am also going to be eliminating fried food, white flour products, etc. Protein and fiber are main focuses. I will be including a daily multivitamin in my routine.

    Does this sound like an effective plan? Is it safe?

    • ANSWER:
      That diet sounds good. Remember to drink enough water, and try to eat 5 small meals instead of three big ones.


20 In 10 Days Diet

Did you know that starving the body on a low calorie diet is the worst thing you can do to lose weight. It can even make you fat! Find out today how to lose 10 pounds in 20 days by doing the unthinkable, by eating more. You will learn how to lose 10 lbs body fat quickly & easily. Best of all you will never look back at gaining weight again!

How it works?

Think of this, if you starve the body, why would your body try to lose weight? If anything it would try to conserve body fat as an internal security measure, which is exactly what happens. When you suddenly reduce your calorie intake you actually slow down the very process you want to speed up, your metabolism. So how does this system work? It's easy you 4 healthy meals every day, as much as you want!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the Lose 20 Lbs in 10 Days diet?? How did it work for you??

    • ANSWER:
      Try some diets and effective weight loss tips and more on this site to help you with it

  2. QUESTION:
    theres a lose "20 lbs in 10 days" diet, Just wondering if it works, or how you can do it?
    Or just any very quick way to lose weight

    • ANSWER:
      You can't lose 20lbs in days by diet alone unless you starve yourself enough to do real damage. There are 3000 calories in each pound of body fat. To lose 20lbs in ten days you would need to drop 6000 calories per day. I really doubt that you eat anywhere near that much (not unless it takes a truck with a TV crew standing by to move you) and the problem is that even if you cut out sufficient to lose the weight that you want to lose, you will lose muscle as much as fat.

      You have to exercise to burn the fat, not try to diet it off, that way you don't do so much muscle damage and you get healthier. You won't do it in ten days though, losing two pounds per day is hard even for a determined athletic person. You lose it on the first couple of day - water loss from ketosis - then you stop losing. And you pack it back on overnight once you start eating again.

      If you want to lose weigh, approach it in a sensible, healthy way. Lots of regular cardio exercise and a healthy low carb (not Atkins) diet.

    Thanks again!

    • ANSWER:
      Will I don't know how fast this works...but I tried this before even though it tastes bad but I lost a lot of weight from it.....You mix together:

      2 tbs of apple cider vinegar
      1 tbsp of honey with
      1 cup of water

      You stirr them until the honey dissolves well into the drink and you drink it (you can try pinching your nose to plug it if you can't handle the taste...lol :P ) Anyways, if you change your mind about diets, I would deffinately recommend The Weight Watchers diet, b/c I hate diets as well but this is yet the easiest I have ever seen, you can eat as much as you want but you have a limited amount of points you can have in a day, depending on your weight.... :)

Ty!

    • ANSWER:
      i used to be the same weight as you then i started jogging every day after a week and a half i was 128 pounds. now im 120 and its been three weeks, another thing is you could try to eat less but more often. For instance eat yogurt for breakfast and and apple or bannana for a snack after 2-4 hours then eat salad for lunch 2-4 hours later then have a handful of peanuts 2-4 hours later for dinner eat salmon but dont eat dessert. after you eat all your meals then you should go running so you dont sleep with all that food in your stomach.

      For breakfast, make scrambled eggs, but take out the yolk.
      Instead of having a roast beef sandwich on white break, try turkey and lettuce on wheat or whole grain.
      When you get hungry, snack on cucumbers or celery.
      Take a walk everyday for 15-30 minutes.
      Make sure to cut out or reduce your juice/soda/junk food/red meat intake.
      Chicken is the best meat.

  13. QUESTION:
    Should my 10 year old daughter be taking 20 diet pills per day??
    My 10 year old daughter is real big and fat and sloppy. She is 5'0 and weights 355 lbs. She has many many rolls of fat and has difficulty breathing because of her extremely obese stature. I have tried to do everything in my power to help her to loose weight. I do not keep junk food in the house. I buy only fruits and veggies and try to explain to her the importance of a healthy diet. She is not getting the fatty foods from home, she gets them from friends houses. One of her friends mother called me and told me that she found my daughter in her shower eating a pan full of lasagne. One of my daughter's boyfriends suggested that she start taking diet pills to loose her weight. He says that diet pills will burn the fat off quickly and the more she takes the more weight she will loose in a short amount of time. Is this ok? Should she really be taking 20 pills per day? Help please!

    • ANSWER:
      No, she should be taking at least 30+20 Prozac&17Ritalin.My suggestion is you kill the beast before it eats you and the rest of the family.

      Well you can surely lose 10 kg in 20 days, but require good balanced diet forever, splitting diet in 10 means, alternate day breakfasts of fruot and 1 bread only and evening just milk with very little suger than snacks and shakes

      breakfast of cereals, milk and egg only,
      lunch u can have beans on bread, dal rice, bread with baked/ boiled vegetables

      have light dinner, again u can have bread and salad, rice with gravy

      avoid chicken, cheese, paneer, pizzas and junk food, learn some recipes for healthy food..

  16. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to lose 20 pounds in 10 days?
    I don't care if I had to eat 50 calories a day. I just need to lose weight fast! What is the best diet? Does master cleanse work???

    • ANSWER:
      The lemon detox or master cleanse/starvation diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose a few pounds but when you start eating again you will probably gain more weight. It took me some time to figure it out but you will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose around 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system.
      You may lose a pound of body fat but not necessarily. So it does work. but it does not change your SIZE. Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it?
      The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available.
      The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to burn muscle mass for fuel instead of the stored fat (metabolism).
      Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed.
      When you start eating again the body immediately stores any food as fat because it doesn't know when the next famine is coming. You really don't detox since a substantial portion of the toxins in the body are stored in fat cells. So if you don't lose the fat, you don't lose the toxins.
      The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well to fully detox.Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead.
      The liver does in fact get layered with fat when we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
      Spend your money in the produce department.
      Good luck.

  18. QUESTION:
    How do I lose 10 pounds in 20 days?
    Im 143 pounds... and im 5'5. Im not FAT. im just flabby and i want to get rid of it. Do you think Just Dance 2 would help me? Or a low-carb diet? What kinds of foods should I eat?

    • ANSWER:
      i've heard to lose a pound you need to burn more calories you eat. to add up all your calories and burn more than that i guess.

      i think counting calories make your self conscious and isnt good. i would suggest to limit your diet. i dont mean only fruits and veggies i just mean when out with friends get a small milkshake rather than a large or some sunchips rather than french fries.

      i dont think just dance 2 will be enough to lose 10 pounds in 20 days. you'll probably need some running or aerobic exercise in there too.

      good luck reaching your goal!

  19. QUESTION:
    If I only drink water for the next 10 days without eating would I be able to lose up to 20 lbs.?
    I have a vacation coming up in 10 days and I have already been dieting for the last 4 months and lost 50 lbs.! I would like to still lose another 20 lbs. for this vacation but only have those 10 days.

    • ANSWER:
      You lose a pound when you burn 3500 calories. You burn roughly 2000 calories on days where you don't exercise and 3000 calories on days where you undergo strenuous exercise. By my math, you could potentially lose between 5-8 pounds in 10 days.

      All this, however, is beside the point. Not eating for 10 days is down right stupid, borderline anorexia. Your body needs carbohydrates and fats to burn so that you can live and breath. Of equal importance, your body also needs protein to build and repair used muscle tissue. In other words, if you don't eat for 10 days, you'll be extremely tired (perhaps dysfunctional) and you'll lose loads of muscle mass.

      If you abide strictly by the science, you would need to burn 7000 calories everyday to lose 20 pounds in 10 days. My advice to you is to continue with the diet that helped you lose 50 pounds, the damage you'd be doing to your body by excessively fasting is not worth looking good in a bikini.

  20. QUESTION:
    anyone know how to lose 10 pounds in 20 days without starving? like what workout equipment to use at the gym?
    i am trying to lose 10 pounds before i go to vegas and its a lil short notice lol, but i wanna look good, any diets, work out plans that can help?

    • ANSWER:
      I thought for years that it was impossible to lose weight without starving, following a strict diet or going to the gym everyday. My friend joined Weight Watchers and lost 80 pounds within 7 months, I tried it and lost 50 pounds within 4 months! You don't have to go to the weight watchers meetings but they are valuable for support and information. You can find alot of information about weight watchers online along with recipes and you can also buy weight watchers magazines that contain alot of helpful information. All you have to do is drink 8 glasses of water a day. You can substitute water for crystal light and a few occasional glasses of diet pop. You can eat whatever kinds of food that you want as long as you stay within a 'points' allowance. Your daily points allowance depends on you weight, for example I am 180 pound therefore I can consume 24 points a day...on top of the points you get 35 points for a weekly allowance so if you go over that many points within a week then its no gain. Here is a link for an online points calculator that counts the amount of points in anything: http://www.webmilhouse.com/pointcalc.php Of course excerise helps and will help you burn calories faster! Here are some other sites that have point values for a variety of food:

    Whats the best way to lose 10 pounds of fat in 20 days?
    I prefer not to diet i like to only exercise, will diet though if i have to. I am an 18 year-old male.

    • ANSWER:
      DO NOT STARVE YOURSELF!!!!!

      do:
      crunches
      situp
      run
      jog
      push-ups

      one person told me to do this:

      In addition to 60 minutes of cardio a day (Walking, jogging, swimming, dancing, or jumping rope are great!) I do ab circuits multiple times daily.

      *100 crunches
      *50 bicycle crunches
      *25 leg lifts
      *balance your weight on your right elbow (20 seconds)
      *balance your weight on your left elbow (20 seconds)
      *20 push-ups

      Tip: always keep your abs tight (even when sitting or walking)

      Diet: eat foods low in sodium to counteract bloating of the stomach; eat healthy food all around

      For arms, legs, etc. I use resistance bands, weights, and do squats and lunges (50 lunges at a time and 25 squats at a time).

      Small changes are a key to starting a healthier lifestyle
      *Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
      *Walk up the escalator if there aren't stairs.
      *During a break from work, just go outside and walk (you'll be more inspired to keep at it if it's outside on a pretty day) or do a few squats.
      *Start small: Do a few crunches/ push-ups each day, and steadily increase the number.
      *Even though your schedule is busy, try to fit in at least 30 minutes of walking or some other cardio. (jogging, swimming, jumping rope)
      *Turn on some upbeat music and just dance... At home, this isn't embarrassing or anything. Just relax and dance; it's really fun!
      *Throw out all the junk food in your house, and don't let yourself buy any... When you're tempted to buy/eat junk food, picture yourself as gorgeous and thin... that'll keep your focus on the goal.
      *Switch to whole grain foods; they are much healthier.
      *Choose healthier snacks... We're always tempted by sugary and high calorie snacks like we find in vending machines. Instead pack an apple, a rice cake (they are REALLY good), or a nutrition bar.
      *Add more servings of fruits and vegetables; it's tough, but they are healthy and can fill you up faster.
      *When fixing a meal, prepare everything then put up the bags, boxes, etc. so you won't be tempted by seconds.
      *Brush your teeth right before and after a meal. It will curb your appetite.
      *Eat slowly and take smaller bites because the "I'm full" hormones will be signalled better.

    • ANSWER:
      That is probably a marketing scam fyi, You can't lose that much weight in fat, maybe in water but you won't see a difference. So unless you plan to carry a scale around with you and say hey i'm 20 lbs lighter because i lost a lot of water and didn't eat so i'm better than i was a week ago, You're shit out of luck. You have to do regular cardio and eat right, there is no over night treatment for weight loss.

    OK so i really have to lose 10 KG in 20 days i am ready to do anything but can anyone give me a good diet or anything plz

    • ANSWER:
      When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
      If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
      will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
      underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
      exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
      diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
      after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
      your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
      you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey
      cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your
      diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
      calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
      start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
      most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
      lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
      disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
      your problem areas for men and women. It's not necessarily to become a
      bodybuilder or even join a gym - a couple of dumbbells will help you
      to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

    • ANSWER:
      A combo of cardio and light weights coupled with low calorie/carb/fat foods.

      Speed walk in the mornings and eat a salad for breakfast.
      Lift light weights, do sit ups.

      Buy a crap load of baby carrots + celery sticks and just snack on them 5-6 times a day in addition, drink a lot of water (gallon a day) - this will keep you feeling full, low calories and boost metabolism.

  30. QUESTION:
    Is there some effective way I can shed 5-10 pounds in 20 days without pills or fad diets?
    I'm sorry, I'm sure this question probably gets asked a million times a day, but I couldn't find any answers that specifically helped my situation.

    Basically on January 3rd, a really close friend of mine, who I haven't seen in a while, is coming out to visit me. I haven't seen him in 4 years, so he doesn't really know what I look like. I normally eat well, I'm a vegetarian, and I go to the gym (although I kind of slacked off during this past semester). However, I'm 5'3" and 128 pounds and I feel that that's a bit overweight, and I just want to tone up a bit before I see him. I don't want to do something completely temporary like diet pills or crash diets, but at the same time I want to see some sort of result in a pretty small amount of time. Are there any particular workout regimens that will help me achieve this?

    • ANSWER:
      umm i would say 5"3 128 pounds. you look fine.....

      but i'm not here to be the judge of that if you want to lose that you could run a mile maybe if your feeling abashes 2. and you could easily take off 5 pounds. hope that helps :)

    Don't lecture me on my health, I already know all that.. But I know people have done it before so help me find the best possible solution to beat my friend with exercise and food diet.

    • ANSWER:
      Yeah your right it is possible.
      400 calories a day.
      One hour exercise
      Now 400 calories may sound little BUT
      Breakfast: Bannana 95kcal
      Lunch: Tuna with salad 150kcal
      Dinner: A Fruit salad from tesco 85kcal
      Snacks: Big mug of coffee: 60kcal

      stay under 600 calories a day and exercise. you want to lose that much weight in ten days... that's the only way you're gonna do it. whatever you eat- no matter how healthy you need to stay under 600 calories. drink water. make sure to keep hydrated. take vitamins. the 600 calorie a day diet can be dangerous if continued for a long time but if you're doing it for just 10 days you'll get your maximum weight loss results.

      you're not going to lose 10-20 any other way. trust me. all that pill and w.e crap from cvs- doesn't do anything but give you caffeine and other stuff to make you heart rate faster and heat up your body- which helps a little- but if you continue eating the same way... no. slimfast- no- those things are so sugary... drink coffee, black with sweet & low... that'll curb your appetite a bit. if you want a sure way to make sure you stay under 600 calories... just eat lean cuisine meals- they have the calories on the back. try to get the lowest calories possible 180 each - so that you can have three per day- and then just have celeray. not carrots cause they've got lots of sugar.

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest a cleansing diet. I lost 12 pounds in 9 days and then 28 pounds in less than a month. I also lost a lot of inches too! I learned that cleansing will help the body get rid of toxins. Toxins come from a lot of things like fast food, pollution, food additives and preservatives and lots of other things. The toxins get stored in the fat in our body. To get rid of the fat, we have to get rid of the toxins by cleansing the body. This made sense to me and I decided to try a cleanse program and it worked. The weight came off fast and this kept me motivated to keep going, not like other diets where the weight loss it too slow. I did Jenny Craig, Weight Watcher and Medifast. If you want to learn more call the toll free number 1-877-587-4647 or check out the website. This was the first time I ever did a cleanse, it was easy and I feel better. Good luck whatever you decide to do! http://thebestcleansingdiet.com

    • ANSWER:
      i hope this help and work for you cause it did for me. i was fat and overweight last last for the past 8years starting 2002 but now I'm in great and best shape of my life. i started my diet and exercise program last year at the end of July. i first started playing around with a soccer at my work parking lot but you don't have to do that specially if you don't like soccer but you can do yoga or shadow boxing or cardio like i did, can you?. so do that, it will help melt the fat and trim your fat and body and get all that sugar and water out from your body, when you sweat you'll lose weight remember that. so that is my first advice for you, second do jump rope for like 15minute per day and about 100 to 250 sit-ups per day and squat to trim your waiste and jog or run 5 to 10miles per day or 45minute a day that should be enough and if you want to tone and trim your legs and butts, just power ro speed walk up and own the hill one mile up the hill on a uphill street and go back down and go back up again three to five time and within two to three weeks your will get use too it and you will feel and see the different about dieting, eat one salad bowl a day, some fruit, such as apple, pineapple, carrot, banana, pears, mango, grapefruit or orange, any one of these should do it for you and for your lunch or dinner, one turkey slice Oscar Meyer Sandwich with whole grain bread. remember that turkey slice should not exceed more then 50 calories per slice and bread no more then 80 calories and yeah no more milk, soda or juice that has over 10gram of sugar in it, if you want to drink juice, do what i do, 1/3 glass of juice and the rest it water 2/3 so more water then juice in glass of juice ok. that should clear and decrease the add sugar in the juice. if you do this simple diet and exercise i just describe, you will not fall and remember i use to be 298 pound i now weight in 175 pound and it has not been a year yet at the end of this month will mark one year anniversary on my exercise and diet program. i hope that help good luck and i wish you the best and luck with your weight lost program. enjoy. happy 4th of July. email me if you have anymore question.

    I have tryed crazy diets but i just wanna be healthy and try to lose weight a healthy way
    thanks alot if you aswer my question

    • ANSWER:
      This all depends on your age and how overweight you are now. If you are in the obese category (or close to it) you can absolutely lose 10 pounds in 20 days by light exercise and healthy eating. Your goal should be more long term though. It's all about changing your lifestyle, not just losing that first 10 pounds.

    Is it possible to lose 20 pounds in 10 days? If so, how?
    I'm a 5'3 and my weight is 135 pounds. Yeah, I'm also 12 years old. I know I'm very overweight.Please don't rub it in.

    Ok, I know that losing that much won't be healthy but really i don't care! I just need an answer that won't tell me to take pills or one that says don't try it. I ride my bike a hour a day and i know its not enough.. SO like should i stop eating for about ten days? Or go on a liquid diet??

    THNKS ^_-

    • ANSWER:
      The thing is your only 12 so this isn't really the right age for you to go on a major crash diet like starving yourself, because these sorts of diets are really unhealthy and can do serious damage to your body if you don't give it what it needs, also it can make you really moody and also can cause a lack of concentration which you definatly need in school.
      The best thing to do to loose weight fast but to also keep healthy is to do alot more excersise during the day for example ride your bike 2 hours a day, and do other activities such as dancing or even running, make sure you also walk alot and avoid taking a bus or car if you don't need to.
      Whenever you get hungry for something sweet eat a piece of fruit instead and lay off all the juices and fizzy drinks and stick to water. For lunch eat a small portion of food which is low in fat like a jacket potatoe. Then for dinner eat something rich in protein and low in carbohydrates like grilled chicken and vegetables. For breakfast stick to plenty of fruit. And be sure to drink lots of water.
      GOOD LUCK =)

    Lunch: 1 chicken fajita pita from jack in the box (300 calories, 10 grams of fat) -11:30

  45. QUESTION:
    20 days to go - Low carb or low cal?
    Hi all! I know fast diets are bad (blah blah) but I joined WW when I had 3 months til holiday, I subscribed to Dukan coaching when I had 6 weeks and I now only have 20 days to go and because of my nightly wine habit am no closer to my goal (I know, I know).
    Anyway, I have lots of lovely clothes to wear so even I can deny myself of vino for 20 days in order to feel good in them. I work out with a trainer 4 mornings a week (I am a size 10, 5ft 6 and 139lbs) and in relatively good shape to the casual beholder but want to lose a bit and firm for bikini exposure!!!!).
    So my question is - do I low carb or low cal for the next 20 days? in addition to my personal training I am going to add in 2miles on the treadmill a day. I know thats not far but I know when I start trying to commit to more I end up not bothering (I know myself if nothing else!)

    i will also do 30-45 minutes on elliptical and 10 minutes of jump rope.

    so, i am on a diet since 15/4. and i did everything that supposed to be done, eating healthy, going to gym twice or once at least a week, minimized sugar intake to the 1/8 (didn't swap sugar with artificial sweetners), drinked water and fresh sugarless drinks instead of sode..etc..etc..
    but didnt loose a pound, despite i usually loose the maximum amount of extra weight in first couple of weeks, but none is gone
    but although scale and people tells me i didnt acheive any progress, i feel my abs more toned and strong, my arms more defined, i have to wear the built a degree tighter than ever..
    how can i loose more weight, i have 20 lbs to loose, and i literally live on salad

    • ANSWER:
      When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
      If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
      will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
      underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
      exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
      diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
      after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
      your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
      you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey
      cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your
      diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
      calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
      start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
      most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
      lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
      disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
      your problem areas for men and women. It's not necessarily to become a
      bodybuilder or even join a gym - a couple of dumbbells will help you
      to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

    • ANSWER:
      I highly recommend that you get on a strict, clean diet and exercise (cardio) on a regular basis. Plus, set goals and keep a journal to track your daily progress there. This should help you stay motivated and results will come quickly.

      Take a look at the articles I have provided for you.

  49. QUESTION:
    How to Lose 5-10 pounds in 20 days?
    Ok, my 21st bday is coming up soon and I have been slacking on trying to lose weight. Im pretty smart when it comes to exercising and eating right, its just getting that routine down. How many calories a day should I consume, and still be healthy? I was thinking around 800-1000 plus 30 min. of exercise a day? I need answers from other young moms out there, I have a 3 year old son, and I am just needing some kind of exercise moves, or diet secrets!!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      If you are only consuming 800-1000 calories per day and exercising, you're going to seriously jack up your body and metabolism. If you starve yourself like that and keep exercising, your body will think it needs to conserve every last calorie and your metabolism will slow waaaay down.

      Depending on your height and weight, somewhere between 1200 and 1600 calories per day is appropriate, at a minimum.

      What type of exercise do you do? If you're just doing cardio, try doing some strength training with light weights. Pilates is also a great way to give you lean, long muscles. Remember that muscle helps burn calories, so strength training is essential.

      Good luck!

      You lost so much weight in the beginning. That can't keep up forever. You will reach a plateau, and need to do different things to lose weight. Try exercising, and drinking more water. Slow and steady is better.

  2. QUESTION:
    weight loss/ diet plan question ?
    weight loss question?
    okay so I am currently 5'6 and 160 pounds. I want to go down to 120 before I start college which is beginning of September. Here is my diet plan that I have been on for about 2 days now and of course it is much too early to see results but I would like some of your opinions on it and suggestions on how to make it better.
    ps. I don't want to just lose weight I want to tone my body, so here it is:

    diet consists of 5 small meals per day but the only things that I am allowed to eat include:
    egg whites (one whole boiled egg once a week)
    basic salad (lettuce, cucumber, lemon juice)
    soy milk
    only one fruit per day from the following selection- apple, grapefruit, handful of blackberries.
    green tea (no sugar, just one tea spoon of honey)
    plain chicken breast (not fried)
    white fish (again not fried)
    celery (no dip)
    coffee (black)
    and my exercise plan includes:
    -one hour of elliptical in the morning
    -one hour of elliptical + half an hour of weight lifting/ muscle building exercises at night
    -50 sit ups per day
    -sundays are my rest days, so no exercise

    I've stuck to this plan for two days and have no intention of giving up any time soon, so let me know what you think. and please keep all negative comments to yourselves.
    And let me know if you think I'll lose th weight in time if i stick to this plan
    thank you =)

    • ANSWER:
      I think your plan sounds pretty good. The meal part is perfect, low sugar and low carb, so you should be fine.
      Your exercise plan could have some more cardio incorporated into it though. Try taking up running - it's good for your core, and it slims down leg muscles! Too much elliptical can make your thigh muscles bulky and large. Along with your sit-ups, why not add 20 push ups to that too? And on your rest days, maybe do some stretching, because it helps with the build-up of lactic acid and increases your range of motion without tiring you out.

      I think with the combined effort of a healthy diet and constant exercise, you should be able to lose all the weight you need! You could even add a few other foods to your diet plan, as long as you exercise, because everyone needs a bit more variety in their diets.
      When you go off to college, are you planning to stick to a healthy diet/exercise then too?

    QUESTION: Is this weight loss plan good enough? Will I be able to lose 2 pounds per week doing this?
    ( Yes ) or ( No )

    :)
    @Savannah: Yes, I am from New York! :)

    • ANSWER:
      It's hard to say. You're already pretty tiny so you might not lose weight as fast as something who is overweight but doing the same routine as you.

      You're burning about 2,800 calories a week just through diet. The calories you naturally burn (1400) minus the calories you consume (1000) = 400 calories. You lose 400 calories a day through diet and if you times that by 7, that means you lose 2800 calories per week.

      Since you need to burn 7600 calories to lose two pounds, you still need to burn 4800 more to achieve your goal. That means you need to burn almost 700 calories per day through exercise. I think it can work depending on how intense you work out, but I can't say for sure.

      What I think will help you is lifting weights. I know, I know, you gain weight when you do that but it is muscle and that will only increase your metabolism. But you can always get a scale that has a body fat percentage monitor to track your progress. I have a Tanita one. It's a little pricey but it's worth it.

      If I were you, I'd also try to cut back on carbs. Try to eat them only in the morning/early afternoon. In my experience, if you eat carbs past 5 at night, even if you stick within your caloric limits, you'll weigh more the next morning then you did the day before. It is only water weight but keeping your water weight level at a minimum will help you burn more fat.

      Hope I helped. Good luck!!

  5. QUESTION:
    Is this a good weight loss/diet plan?
    Alright, so. Range from 1000-1500 calories daily. (probably averaging out at about 1200 a day.)
    35 minutes of cardio 5 times a week (2-4 miles, depending on the program)
    15-20 minutes of core/toning exercises 5 times a week.

    Should I see fast results? I'm varying my exercise/food intake so I don't slow my metabolism down.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Emery,
      1200-1500 is a good range along with exercise, they key is eating the best food to fuel your body, I lost 75 lbs by Clean Eating, not only did I lose weight but my skin looks great, hair is healthier & I have long nails which I never had. Spark People is a great place to Join, they can give you meal ideas & track your nutrition.

  6. QUESTION:
    Weight loss / Diet plan help ?
    hi, am haven't dieted a lot before or hardly educated when it comes to things that the body needs to lose weight such as calories etc. Anyways iv recently changed my diet from

    no breakfast / snacking in between until 5pm (some times none at all) / main meal (some healthy some not) / snacking on wards to 1am - drinks are water / fizzy / fruit (snacks would be crisp, sweets etc )

    to

    breakfast ( 1 fruit 2 yoghurt's 1 actimel 1 whole grain bar ) / main meal ( pasta - salads - etc ) / snack at 9pm then none till bed - snacks would be fruit / yoghurt / rice cake - drinks are water and fruit juices.

    For my question, How many calories and fat are needed per for average male ? and from my new diet is this OK - any think need changing - and rough calorie intake ?

    I walk average 1 mile per day, so with this diet would there be a significant weight lose and how much per week ? thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      This shows you how many calories you need in a day:

      http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm

      Ignore extreme fat loss, if anything look at maintenance and fat loss calories. Fat loss calories is the amount of calories you should eat and not have to exercise to lose weight. Maintenance calories is the amount of calories you should eat and burn 500 through exercise to lose weight. Eating more calories if you're eating maintenance rather than fat loss means you'll be less hungry, however you will have to exercise and burn calories. Also fill those calories with healthy foods on the weekdays and eat junk if you must on the weekends.

  7. QUESTION:
    Weight Loss Diet PLAN for teen?
    So I'll tell you a little about myself first off. I'm 15, weigh 125 pounds and I am 5'4. I want to lose 10 pounds. I've looked at weight loss tips and stuff but that doesn't help I need a plan, something I can follow.

    I have been going to the gym every day for the past 2 weeks And have lost 5 pounds (originally I was 130) Please dont recommend taking pills or going on jenny craig or nutrisystem (etc) I'm too young.

    Thank you, all answers are appreciated(:

    • ANSWER:
      I know you exact situation! Pills are weird to get into because your young and I found it awkward to tell my mom, "hey, can we buy diet pills so I can lose weight?" I have been going to the gym too. But, it all depends on what exercises you are doing at the gym! If there is a bike (really good) do some interval training. go at a normal rate for 10 minutes, then as fast as you think you can hold for another ten minutes. Eat lots of veggies (eww, i know) greens are best. Strawberries are super good, if you like them and aren't allergic! They are low in calories too, it's about 18 calories for a cup of halves. Eat whole grains and eat small foods every 2 hours or so. Big meals aren't the best for you metabolism(which burns fat). Also, go grocery shopping with your mom too(if you already don't) and buy all the good foods and slowly get rid of your junk. When it runs out, dont replace the junk. When you dont see it, you don't want to eat it. Hope that helps!

  8. QUESTION:
    Is this a good diet/weight loss plan?
    Currently i weigh about 186, i've droped down from 200 pounds but, i want to lose more weight! I've also gotten abit stronger too with weight lifting :D My ideal weight might be around 170..but, i can live with 175ish
    I ride my bike to school currently(though it's only summer school so it's only 3 times a week) but, its about 5 miles one way, so i ride about 30 MANDATORY miles a week. I also do High intense interval training running occasionally as well.

    My current diet is
    breakfast (6-8 AM)
    2 bowls of WHOLE GRAIN cerrios M W FSun
    2 Eggs and whole grain toast T TH

    2 hours later i'll eat a banna/apple

    for lunch (11am-1pm)
    I'll eat some grilled chiken breasts with some chicken noodle soup on the side
    or a 2 sandwiches consisting of turkey ham( about 4-5 slices) and swiss cheese

    2 hours later i'll eat banana/apple

    For dinner(6-8pm) is the same as lunch but maybe a smaller portion

    After weight lifting/intense interval training i make sure i eat some protien but try to keep a medium level of carbs

    is this a good plan to lose more weight? it's worked a bit for me but, ..maybe i can restrict my diet a little more? i plan on keeping this my diet for the rest of my life so..it's kinda important to make sure i eat right...right?
    oh i forgot to add, that my height is 5'11 if thats important.

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like you have a great plan put together and you will not only drop more fat/weight but on this kind of plan you will build a lot of muscle over time. Remember that after burning off fat the muscle mass that you build might add more weight to your overall body so do not be surprised if you drop weight and than add some on again, dont worry because that is muscle weight and is good.

      I followed the abs diet years ago and it was very similar to the plan you are on currently.
      I wouldnt switch a thing just keep doing what your doing and you will do great. We run a site that offers several articles on weight loss and diet plans that work. Check us out at: www.weightlossdietplanforfree.com Enjoy!

  9. QUESTION:
    A diet weight loss plan for eating 4 or 5 small meals a day?
    Hey everyone. I am a 15 year old guy, I weigh 161.5 pounds and I stand at 5''8. I've recently lost 13.5 pounds but I have seem to hit a plateau in the weight loss, meaning I'm barely losing as much as I was at the beginning. I've read a lot of information about the weight loss plan of eating 4 or 5 meals throughout your day to keep your metabolism sped up, which I'm almost positive I need. But I don't know how to set one up to fit my schedule. I wake up at 6:15 every week day and leave my house at 6:45 for school. My lunch period is from 10:30-11:15, and I come home around 2:45. My dinner however can be flexible. So can anyone help me? What should I eat for breakfast or lunch? When and what else should I eat in between? I would so greatly appreciate it if someone could outline for me a plan in detail if possible. Thanks so much!

    • ANSWER:

  10. QUESTION:
    Is this a good diet weight loss plan for a 15 year old?
    I am 6 feet tall and 203 lbs. My goal weight is 175 lbs.
    Breakfast: Protein Shake
    Lunch: A bagel (plain, no butter or anything), and pasta salad (this is my school lunch and the healthiest option there)
    330: I will go to the gym for like 1.5 hours(every other day, every part of my body)
    When I get home from the gym: An apple
    Before dinner: A banana or an orange
    Dinner: Grilled Chicken with baked lays potato chips
    And I will only drink water

    Any tips and other good stuff to eat would be greatly appreciated.
    I'm hoping to lose 2 lbs a week
    Joe, so what would be a suggested breakfast and I am going to begin running at the gym. I have this app called from couch to 5k. Very positve reviews and it does intervals basically. I am only doing basic lifting, nothing major. And wha about an alternative side at dinner

    • ANSWER:
      First off lose the potato chips, what I would do is eat about 5-6 small meals every day instead of 3 normal meals. For example for
      BREAKFAST: the protein shake is good
      SNACK 1: half a cup of mixed nuts (try and stay away from cashews)... since you are in school just keep the snack in a lunch bag and eat it during class if you can
      LUNCH: salad is fine
      SNACK 2: foods rich in complex carbohydrates, such as whole-grain pasta, rice, and bread, and fruits and vegetables (hour or two before workout if possible)
      WORKOUT: In my opinion I would do mostly cardio and some weightlifting but lighter weight...I would follow this website for the workout... http://www.shapefit.com/fitness-advice-5.html
      SNACK 3 (optional): protein bar or small protein shake (RIGHT AFTER WORKOUT)
      DINNER: fish, beans, lean chicken (AND REMEMBER NO CARBS AFTER 6:00 PM)

      AND DON'T FORGET TO DRINK LOTS OF WATER
      GOOD LUCK!!!! And always put 100% into your workouts it makes a huge difference!

  12. QUESTION:
    Does this sound like a good diet plan to lose weight?
    Ok, I am 22 years old...5'8" tall....and I weigh 165 lbs. I want to lose 30 lbs before next summer comes. I don't have the money to pour into these weight loss plans and groups and diet pills and remedies!! I have to do it the old fashion way. So here is the diet I am thinking.

    Breakfast: 1 orange and a glass of 1% milk
    Snack: Homemade Fruit Smoothie
    Lunch: 1 can of Progresso Soup (I love these!!!!)
    Snack: Cheese Slices with Crackers and lowfat Ranch
    Dinner: 500 calorie meal
    Late Night Snack: 1 orange and a glass of 1% milk

    And if I exercise atleast 30 minutes a day on an eliptical machine.

    Do you think I can lose 1-2 pounds a week with this diet or am I dreaming? I really want to lose weight but I don't want to have to go to extremes. Please give me your honest opinion. I appreciate all your help and tips. Thanks!!!
    I see alot of you recommending weight watchers. I need to be able to stick to a dinner that all my family will enjoy. My husband works all day and me and the kids eat different lunches but we all sit down and eat dinner together. It's to much of a hassle to cook 2 different dinners. What kind of food does weight watchers entail. Thanks for all the tips I'm getting!!

    • ANSWER:
      I think it sounds really good and sensible - not like some people who have decided to survive on diet coke.

      Maybe cut out the Cheese Slices on Crackers and have fruit instead? And drink lots of water because it makes your appetite lessen!

      Good luck :)

  13. QUESTION:
    I need help with a weight loss plan!!! I am 5'3'' and 170...I recently had a baby and I need a diet plan.
    I work out with a trainer 2 x per week and walk a lot as well as some cardio, but I have very poor eating habits. I don't have a clue how many fat/calories I should intake in a day and what foods to eat? Can someone help me??

    • ANSWER:
      lots and lots of water! 3-6 bottles a day
      fresh fruit
      raw veggies
      baked fish
      juice (watch out for hgh amounts of sugar)
      skim milk
      soy milk/ soy products
      salad with light dressing
      deli sandwiches

      and stay away from fried foods, fast food, candy, junk food, soda, etc

      and the rest you are already taking care of

  14. QUESTION:
    what do you think of my raw food diet plan for weight loss?
    7 am - breakfast - fruit salad
    9 am - fruit
    11 am - fruit
    1 pm - fruit juice
    3 pm - lunch - mashed fruit
    5 pm - vegetable salad
    7 pm - dinner - vegetable salad

    + one grapefruit after exercising.

    exercise:
    2 hours at the gym (weight lifting + ab exercise)
    1 (minimum) hour walking
    15-30 minutes rope jumping
    10-15 minutes up and down the stairs

    + 3 litres of water

    What do you think of this? Could I lose 3-4 kgs really fast? Like 7-10 days? I am not a big girl, I have 51 kgs and want to get down to 47-48. I have been on a weight loss protein diet for the past 5 weeks and one with a bit of carbs for the 6th one, but these last 3 kgs just won't come off :)

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,
      I would recommend incorporating more vegetables and cutting back on the sugar if you're looking to lose weight. Be sure to incorporate some nuts, seeds, and fats to prevent the body from losing too much muscle; you'll need the protein they impart to grow muscle.

      Salads and fruits can get boring, so I recommend stocking up on raw food recipes. A good resource for raw food recipes is www.rawpeople.com.

      Hope this helps!

      Focus on getting ALL HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP out of your diet and that will go a long way to losing the weight. Eat more fat and less carbs. When you eat carbs, make sure you get lots of fiber as well. Drink lots of water.

      Get the book, "Eat fat, lose fat" by Mary G. Enig, Ph.D. and become educated from real experts, not these pseudo experts you see on Yahoo or in the media.

  20. QUESTION:
    Is my summer weight gain/fat loss diet plan good?
    I'm 17... And here is my diet plan for the summer..

    10AM - Glass of Milk and small bowl of raisan bran

    12Noon - lean meat with 1 cup of brown rice along with some vegetables

    3PM - 1-2 pieces of fruit. Whole-wheat sandwich or Sugar-Reduced Peanut Butter sandwich. One glass of milk.

    6PM - Similar to noon.

    9PM - Something light and healthy, but no carbs.

    I will ride my bike for about a hour almost everyday. Weightlift 3-4 days a week. And Before every work out, i take 2 capsules of GNC Amplified Creatine 189 and after work out i drink GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Protein. Is that good enough for a summer diet plan?

    • ANSWER:
      pretty good i think you should add more fruits though

  21. QUESTION:
    Is this a good diet and workout plan for weight loss in 4 months?
    I really want to lose 2 stone or as near as possible in 4 months (I want to be nice and slim for Glastonbury and just be slim and healthy after that too...) I am a size 12 and would love to drop a dress size and lose a few inches to go down to a size 10. I am also doing the Bupa 10k in May and would like to be as fit as possible for that.

    I am planning on cutting down on carbs (not cutting out but cutting back) and doing exercise:

    Diet plan example:

    Breakfast:
    Cornflakes and skimmed milk for breakfast

    Lunch:
    Chicken with salad

    Dinner:
    An omelette or fish with vegetables or salad

    Snacks:
    Apples, hoummous and vegetables, protein shakes

    Exercise:
    45 minute Exercise DVD 4 or 5 times a week (cardio, abs and thighs, kicks and arm exercises)
    Pilates DVD twice a week
    Pole dancing fitness class for an hour a week
    Running (building up from slow jogging for 30 minutes and doing more as it gets to Summer)
    Walking as much as possible, taking the stairs instead of lifts and going for walks in lunch breaks etc...

    Is there anything that I can do to improve this or any good protein foods I can eat different from those above? I am looking to lose 2 stone in 4 months and tone up. Do you think this would achieve a healthy weight loss of 2-3 pounds a week and get me more toned, fit and healthy. Would love some advice from someone who knows a bit more about this as I am going into this sensibly but am a little bit of a novice.

    Thank you SO much for your help.

    • ANSWER:
      I am on a high protein diet right now, and here are some additional foods you may want to consider: Lowfat (or NoFat) Cottage Cheese; LowFat Yogurt; Lean Meats beside chicken is pork (obviously not bacon) but look for the good white meat chops; I make omlettes with Egg Beaters (egg substitute), with Turkey and 1 piece of FatFree Cheese Slide (the Kraft brand is surprisingly very good and melts!). I only have the omlettes on the weekends. During the week I have 1 packet of instant oatmeal w/1% milk (Skim is better but I haven't progressed there yet!). Make sure to eat some low calorie snacks (apples, yogurt, cottage cheese, protein bars, etc) that will help keep you satisfied between meals...it will help you fight urges to eat junk food. I also suggest sugar free snacks (I keep sugar free candies at my desk at work and on my computer stand at home--they taste like regular hard candies with only a fraction of the calories and takes away those "sweet" urges). The high protein diet does keep you satisfied longer, and has given me energy (something I've lacked for quite some time!).

      I have been on this diet for 6 weeks and have lost 13 lbs so far. In addition, I am doing exercises at home for about 30 minutes 2 to 3 times a week. I would like to do it 3 to 4 but haven't the time right now with my full time job and I'm a single mom.

      I think with these additional suggestions, you won't get bored as easily. Keep your menu mixed up. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

    Will this weight loss plan work out for me?
    I started my own diet last week which includes going to the gym and fast-walk 2 miles (45 min) and then do some weights. I go monday to friday. My diet plan includes no sweets, no coke (only water), no fried foods, and no bread & rice. I weight 210 lbs and my height is 5'10. My current pants size is 38 cause I have big hips. I've lost 5 lbs since I started. What you guys think? Should this work out for me? thanks

      its sounds great,, excercise everyday with the lower calorie is just what is needed.. add veggies and fruit.. and drink milk(if you like it ) every 2nd week, give your self a small treat. like one (just one) scoop of icecream as a reward for a great job..it will be hard at first because you may get tired from going to the gym but after a few weeks you will actually look forward to going..

  26. QUESTION:
    Diet/exercise plan and weight loss?
    I am 5 foot 4 inches and I weigh 100 pounds. I used to weigh about 110 pounds but went on a diet and got to 100. Now my goal is to MAINTAIN. omg it is so hard.... even harder than when I was losing. I am thinking that my body is mostly fat, instead of muscle. I've read many articles and stuff and it said in order to not easily gain weight, you have to increase your metabolism, and building muscle helps this. So I am trying to replace my fats with muscle. Okay let me get down to my point. I've heard that in order to raise your metabolism you haev to eat smaller 5-6 portions, so this is my schedule. I've maintained 1200 calorie per day plan. I wake up and then I eat breakfast at 8:00 and then lunch @ 11:00 and then at a snack @ 2:00 and then eat dinner at 5:00. I finish my dinner around like 5:20 and then don't eat anything else for the day. as i said, i've maintained 1200calorie/day plan. Is it good to eat a hearty breakfast and a light dinner at the end? or like a small breakfast (because according to some people your body takes in all the breakfast as fat cuz you haven't had anything after last night's dinner) and then a moderate dinner?
    Also, currently, I exercise about 2 hours after dinner (7:15) and then end at 8:00. People say you have to eat something after exercise, but doesn't this make you gain weight? especially if you eat at night at like 8:00 ish?
    So when I wake up to do light morning aerobic exercise (jog/walk for 20 minutes) is it true that morning exercise before breakfast burns fat? so i'm planning to do morning exercise and then eat like 1 hr after? is this good? or do i wait like 2 hours...
    and in the evening, after my 2:00 snack, i'm planning to do anaerobic exercise to build muscle... if i don't have weights at home, will pushups and situps do? so i'm planning to eat at like 2 and then do like pushups and situps at like 3 ish until like 3:30 and then eat like 5:00.. is this good? or do i wait more until i eat dinner? and for exercise after dinner, at like 7ish, do i have to eat when i finish exercise? won't this only cause weight gain? what are the best foods to consume before and after exercise? and now that im trying to MAINTAIN weight, i'm trying to slowly increase my daily calorie amount, as i can't live with 1200 calories/day forever..so what do you think would be a good amount of calories that I should steadily raise it to? and is going like 500 calories over regular amounts once per week bad? apparently some person said it helps with ur diet if you have a day where you go over ur calorie?.. any comments will be greatly appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      Thanks for the story lol,

      To maintain your weight, you must know how many calories you are burning and how many calories you are taking in. Use www.fitday.com, this helps you keep track of calories. It seems like your exercising way too much for the amount of calories you are taking in. Remember that you burn around 2000 calories without even doing anything. So if you want to maintain your weight you should increase your calorie intake or you may risk losing more weight which is unhealthy. Right now your BMI is 17.2 which is slightly underweight, so you shouldn't go any lower than this. If you have any other questions, just ask because what you wrote is a bit confusing lol.

  27. QUESTION:
    is this a good diet plan for FAST weight loss?
    alright i want to be skinny. im not. im a bit overweight.
    so i want to lose. i tried going "sugar free" yesterday but i binged on 1000 calories worth of chcocolate. i did theis everyday since friday. i have to stop because no only did i gain 2 pounds EXTRA, but i need to lose in the first place.

    this is my "plan" so far

    breakfast:
    2 slices of bread
    small bit of low fat margarine
    1 1/3 cups 2% milk

    total: 350 cals

    some bread and a small head of lettuce-
    total: 200

    dinner:
    LEAN chicken, or ground turkey burgers with lots and lots of chicken-500 cals

    chicken-- ax 200-300 worth

    im also burning as MANY calories as i can, meaning 300. i know its not much, not much at all, but i really am trying.

    i binged cause i CRAVED sugar. but the good news is that i ate it all, and theres nothing left to binge on. if its not there i cant eat it.

    • ANSWER:
      Sure. Just know that fast weight loss leads to fast weight gain as soon as you start eating normally again.

  28. QUESTION:
    Personal diet plan for simultaneous weight loss/muscle building?
    Hello all. Just to let you know i have spent some time browsing through similar answers and i felt it was still necessary to ask this question myself, apologies if you believe this has already been answered elsewhere.

    I'm 20 years old, about 5"10 and around 180 pounds. I started a gym routine a few weeks ago, attending 4 times a week, weight training and also doing cardio.

    My currently diet is usually something along these lines:
    Breakfast- 2 slices of toast or baked beans on toast ( do not really have much time at breakfast)
    Lunch- Pasta and chicken salad
    Dinner- Meat with vegetables or pasta/rice (usually chicken)
    Snack- one banana mid morning

    Could anyone give any recommended changes to this diet?
    Also would adding in protein shakes be beneficial? If i did i would probably take one immediately after workout and one with breakfast, is this recommended?

    Also, is it recommended to do cardio (jogging) in the same session as weight training? and if so before or after?

    Many thanks in advance.
    Thanks for the answers so far.

    Also the time of the meals are

    Breakfast- 7:30
    lunch- 12
    dinner- 5
    snack- 10:30

    Does this need to change?

    • ANSWER:
      You need to eat at least 6 meals to build muscle and boost metabolism to lose fat. So you can take protein shake in between break fast and lunch say - at 10 a.m and another shake at 3 p.m.,you can also have solid foods if you prefer. It is also advisable to take whey protein shake right after workout to get faster release of proteins.

      Regarding cardio, it is not good to mix up with weight training. You will be in a catabolic state after weight training and doing a cardio soon can lead to muscle loss. You have to cardio on days when you are not weight training.

  29. QUESTION:
    Safe weight loss aid w/ exercise and diet plan?
    I am about 5' 10" 168 lbs, male, age 19. I realize that this isn't excessively overweight by typical standards but I'm trying to take some steps towards getting into shape by shedding some body fat and building some more muscle.

    For the past month or two I've been exercising on an average of 2-4 times per week for about 30 minutes total each day and am trying to restrict my caloric intake to less than 1700 per day. I am seeing some results but I'd like to take it a step further if possible.

    Are there any safe, all-natural if possible, supplements or drugs I can take that can assist me in either burning calories, building lean muscle, and/or reducing my appetite (I have a pretty big one at times)? I'm well aware of the negative effects that commercial weight loss pills can have, but I don't want something that will do it all more me, just an AID coupled with my diet and exercise. Are there any changes I should make in my current diet/exercise plan to increase effectiveness? Any help at all is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
    My current exercise "plan" usually consists of me biking 3-5 miles up- and down-hill, followed by push ups, crunches, and pull ups. I just started with the latter exercises so it will take some time to build up some strength before I can consider it legitimate weight exercises.

    • ANSWER:
      Your still in the normal BMI range, which is good.
      1700 calories is about the right amount for a male to loose weight; don't be afraid to exceed to 2000 (that's perfectly fine). Remember to be getting all your essential nutrients: about 40-45g of fat (try your best to avoid all saturated/trans fats) about 200g of carbohydrates (keep them all from natural sources such as brown rice, wheat bread, oatmeal, ect) 150-200g of protein mostly from natural sources (only take a protein powder if necessary and if you do, take it pre and post workout) Try to avoid all artificial flavorings. Stay away from High Fructose Corn Syrup and Hydrogenated Oils
      Many people assume that cardiovascular activity is best for losing weight, however in my opinion, weight training is the best method. Now, I'm not saying that you shouldn't do cardio, but incorporate cardio after your weight training specific exercises.
      Creatine is possibly the most used safe supplement for someone looking on gaining muscle mass. In short, Creatine is a substance normally found in your body due to consumption of animal meats. This substance rapidly reproduces ATP energy in your muscles, thus, causing one's body to perform better at the gym. Creatine can be purchased at your local supplement store (GNC recommended). Be sure to drink a lot of water. 10 Cups a day, I recommend.

  30. QUESTION:
    Diet/excersize plan for weight loss/ healthy living?
    I'm looking for someone to help me create a diet and excersize plan.

    FACTS: I work out about an hour for 3 days a week with my trainer, and do my own home work outs for maybe 20-30 minutes on my off days (without trainer).

    EAT: I eat about 2 eggs in the morning, a fruit, vegetables or fruit for lunch with an egg or so, and salmon or chicken for dinner. Sometimes I'lll mix it up by eating some raisin bran cereal for breakfast with Milk.

    DRINK: I drink about 10 cups of water a day. ( or close to it). Also drink green tea and occasionally milk with cereal.

    PROBLEM: sometimes I feel like I eat TOO much to the point where I'm bloated and gross. I try to limit calories so that doesn't happen, but it does. And then It makes me crave sweets and stuff.

    On top of that, It seems like my work out plan really isn't helping. I'm trying to lose about 10 - 20 pounds.

    If you could comment on my day to day regime, what would you say? Can you help me formulate and work out/ eat plan?
    THank you very much.

    • ANSWER:
      The easy answer is eat less, do more.

      But you seem to use the word about a lot. What kind of workout are you doing with a personal trainer for about an hour, three times a week? Aren't they giving you what you are seeking in an exercise plan? How long have you been working with this trainer?

      If this is all you are eating and you are watching your calories....then why are you feeling bloated? Are you eating the sweets and stuff?

      I see from one of your other posts that you are 5'3 and 128 pounds or so. I doubt you are overweight and you probably don't need to lose another 10-15 pounds. Maybe 5-7, But I think you probably need to up the intenstity of your workouts, when you do workout. Especially on your off days? 20 minutes? I can't even imagine that you are getting out of breath or breaking a sweat at 20 minutes. The body doesn't even start breaking down fat, in most people, until after you have been working out for 30 minutes. And are you varying those workouts? If you work out the same amount of time each week, week after week, your body becomes accustomed to it.

      If you haven't been working out for very long with the trainer I would give them more time, but if you are paying good money for a personal trainer, you should be seeing some results either in toning, muscle, loss of fat, or weight loss.

      In regards to your diet....are you really getting enough good fat and protein in your diet? Your body probably craves sweets because you don't give it something it really wants, especially if you are eating the same low calorie meals, meal after meal. Even with healthy foods your body can feel blah if you don't get enough of the right nutrients and vitamins. Are you taking a daily supplement of vitamins? Most dieticians recommed it so you aren't missing out on something. It's okay to snack between meals as long as it is a good snack. Eat 5-6 smaller meals a day to total 1500-1800 calories a day depending on how much you are working out. You can eat as much vegetables as you wish as well as fruit, but always eat more vegetables than fruit, and more green vegetables than other vegetables. Egg whites instead of whole eggs and so on.

      But without knowing what you specifically do for workouts....all I can really say is up the intenstiy, variety, and do a lot of cross training and interval training. Your personal trainer should be able to help you with that.

      Good luck.

  32. QUESTION:
    Am I likely to lose weight on my current diet plan? Details below...?
    A little about myself. I am 5ft6in and I am 23 years old. After high school, I gain a lot of weight and did little about it. Now, I am concerned about my weight and want to do something about it before it is too late.

    Okay, so before I modified anything, I weighed 365lbs. At that time, I had no exercise time in my life at all, nor did I eat good things. I would visit a fast food joint about 5 to 6 times a week or more. Now, on to the changes I have made.

    I started by removing sodas and other sugary drinks from my diet. Then, I eventually cut my fast food visits from 5 to 6 a week down to 1...2 at most a week. And when I do go out, I choose better choices like salads and grilled chicken or fish, depending on what the place I go to offers. Also, I have modified my portions to be smaller, yet still filling. Lastly, I do an hour of exercise in the form of power walking daily, including weekends. So far, which is about 3 months time, I have lost 15lbs bringing me to my current weight of 350lbs.

    Now, at this current weight loss plan, will I continue to lose weight? Also, what other things can I do to improve my rate of weight loss at a safe pace while still not depriving myself of my favorite foods?

    • ANSWER:
      5 pounds per month is very good for you so do it and keep it up.

      Do not worry if you again or not loose some week but if you loose even 3 ponds per month then it is ok. At that time you need to shock the system, eat little less do little more even turn vegetarian.

      **************************************…
      Body parts specific exercises and total body work out.

      Read all this and make your own program. Then stick to it, change it as needed but must have one to follow.

      Try, try, try. Do not give up.
      **************************************…
      You will need few other measurement such as Need to put in the info on wrist size, measure "Fat Index", ------,-------,---.

      Use this link.

      http://www.halls.md/body-mass-index/bmi.…

      Most of it may not apply but is suggested reading only. For lots of solidified fat around the upper abdomen and tummy:

      Include total body work out too, so this fat may not migrate to other locations.

      Learn the yoga by joining classes, and then at the end you can do it right at home. Then there is a Q? of affordability. But there are books in the library and there may be lot to learn free of charge on the net.

      Gym again is the Q? of time and affordability. Time it takes to go to gym can be utilised to do exercise at home.

      Best thing is to use both diet and exercises to reduce this extra weight and the fat.

      If you spend on gym and yoga classes then it is an added incentive to not to waste it. Spend it if you can afford it. You need to be inventive, Gallon jug filled with water is 7 lbs, so you can use two jugs as weights in each hand. A one pound can of soup or vegetables fits nicely in most people's palm too, and make very nice light weights for exercising the arms.

      Most program fail because they are made by other people, so after acquiring the knowledge make your own program up and write it down then do it if need be modify it as you see fit but do not give up try, try, again and again. You will feel good about it and feel very healthy.

      If still growing, so grow grace fully. Doing some Body parts specific weight free, free hand exercises can do wonders for biceps and triceps.

      Same for abs, do abdominal and side bends and front bends and even back bends.

      When you get going on biceps and triceps, you will have enough strength to do pull up and chin ups. Bicycling can save time and if possible swim in a safe place or in a pool ii it is convenient.

      In the mean time just hang from your hand and just keep trying one day you will be able to pull yourself up. Then try chin ups, and slowly add a one more every few days.

      All this is found on the Net and in the library, so read up on it and do it correctly so you that you may not get hurt.

      Must drink 1 gallon of water per day.

      Eat right, include all food groups per this site above. Do not exceed the total calories per day and eat at least 1500 calories per day every day. One pound of fat is about 3500 calories. You must sleep up to 7 to 9 hours a day time permitting and including naps.

      Go for a walk every day for 1 hour,around your residence, start slowly (5 minute), to warm up then increase the speed a little till you can maintain a good clip then slow down to cool off (5 minute before the end of 1 hour). Do the walking in one direction for about 30 minutes then return home, may take little longer.

      Or look up total body weight free free hand exercises and do them for 1 hour every day. You find them in the library and on the Internet. They can be done at home does not need gym.

  33. QUESTION:
    Do you think my weight loss plan will work?
    I wanna lose about 25 lbs. I'm 140 lbs and 5'2" and my goal is to be at 110 - 117 by the holidays (so I can gain it all back hahahaha XD)

    I've done the diet before. It's called "the rotation diet". You eat 600 calories for 3 days, 900 for 4 days, 1200 for a week, take a week off restrictions, and the repeat as many times as you want until you lose weight. I did it sometime last year, and lost about 6 lbs in 2 weeks, tops. And the weight stayed off. I ate small meals, but of healthy foods. And those amounts of calories and did maybe a half hour of DDR with it. I lose weight, and when I got off the diet, the weight stayed off. It worked fast, too. It was thought up by a doctor so.....I only plan on doing it twice (600, 900, 1200, week off, and then repeat once) and doing 45 minutes of activity, including strength training, which I didn't do last time. And then after I lose some weight from that, I'll pick up my caloric intake to around 1500 daily.

    Is this ok?

    http://www.chasefreedom.com/rotationdiet.html There is a link to the actual diet plan

    I know it's unhealthy, but I don't wanna hear about that please. I just wanna know if I'd lose. As I said, I've done it before.........

    here is my normal workout:

    After school/before dinner I have two options that I do:

    1. This may sound silly, but my sibling and I like to pretend we're performing on stage like a band or something, and we just sing along to songs, but I do alot of running, jumping and dancing. It;s usually about an hour to an hour and 20 mins we do that, and I don't jump and stuff the whole time, I gotta catch my breath a little and all.......so it's probably around 30 - 45 minutes of that.....(it's fun so I'm more likely to do it and not get too bored or anything)

    2. 45 minutes of cardio..........i usually do some on my bike and treadmill, mixing it up daily.......i may also start doing intense DDR on some days too. since I can't increase how long I do it, after two weeks of my normal speed on my, let's say my bike for an example, (30 - 36m) i'll increase my speed a little bit.

    I'll do that Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun

    And then on Tues, Thurs and Sat:

    I'll do my "concert" routine after school, and after dinner I'll do 30 minutes of strength training with things like:

    Squats (i'll be doing different types, increasing reps every week)
    Walking lunges (50 on each leg, increasing by 15 each week)
    Pilates (I'll be doing different pilate routines for abs)
    Push-ups (various types, also increasing reps)
    Planks (various moves)

    Etc etc

    And also in the evenings, after dinner, almost every day, my sibling and I RP (roleplay) in our bedroom, and there's alot of walking and running (mostly walking) and eventually we're gonna be fighting enemies and stuff so I'll be kicking and punching and jumping and running alot.
    OH and i'm a vegetarian

    ***My sister is telling me that the "concert" won't burn fat OR barely any calories at all
    I do alot of jumping and running around and stuff when I do it. Doesn't that count for something? Will the concert do anything worth my time??***

    • ANSWER:
      Keeping a food journal helps you pin point your eating pattern and will enable you to easily modify it. If possible, have your Registered Dietitian review your journal.
      Most authorities recommend 30 - 60 minutes of physical activity a day to stay healthy. Also try adding weight-bearing exercises at least 2 times a week. This will help burn some of the unwanted calories.

    Is this a healthy diet and excersice plan for weight loss and toning?
    I do 3 or 4 hours of cardio per week and pilates 3 hours a week. I also do abdominal work (3 hundered crunches 6 days a week). I eat eggs and toast for breakfast, an apple for a snack, a grilled chicken salad with light dressing for lunch, and 1/2 a grapefruit and either broccoli or squash for dinner. I do go out to eat on weekends and drink some beers on the weekends too. Is this diet and workout plan good enough to get me from 134 pounds to 115 pounds in a healthy way?
    Any advice would be great because I am clueless!

    • ANSWER:
      Here are some tips on how you can lose those unwanted pounds the healthy way:

      1. Do not starve your self.

      The key to a healthier way of losing weight is: Do not diet.

      You may seem happy and feel that you are losing those unwanted flabs on your belly and thighs by skipping meals. But remember that this would not last long. Your body cannot tolerate having insufficient food to fuel the energy that you use up everyday.

      If you get used to skipping one or two meals a day, your stored calories will be used up instead of the energy that should have been provided by your meals. So if you just eat one huge sandwich in one day, it will end up straight to your problem area (i.e. highs, buttocks, hips).

      2. Start your day right.

      Mothers always say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Have a healthy meal in the morning to jump-start your metabolism.
      Your food intake after you wake up will be used to burn fat all day long.

      http://fast-weightloss-plans.blogspot.com/

      3. Eat small, healthy meals frequently.

      Five small-serving snacks per day is better than three hearty meals. Eating more frequently, and in small servings, can prevent over-eating. This will also increase your metabolism and make calories burn faster.

      4. Decide on how much weight you want to lose.

      Keep your goals realistic. In the long run, it is virtually impossible for you to lose 40 pounds in 2 weeks. Have a mindset that you want to eat healthy to stay healthy for the rest of your life.

      Once you have decided on a weight loss plan or program, stick to it and make sure that you follow your own set of dieting rules.

      5. Drink lots of water.

      Your body needs sufficient water to burn fat and keep your cells hydrated and healthy.

      6. Avoid too much sugar.

      Plan your meals around lots of fruits and vegetables, some bread, rice or pasta for that carbo fix that you need, plus lean meat and protein rich-foods. Sweets, sodas and pastries should be once-in-a-while indulgences only.

      7. Watch your fat intake.

      Fat is not the culprit to being overweight. You need this to keep your weight at the proper level.

      There is such a thing as healthy fats. Olive, peanuts and canola oil have them. Tuna, salmon and mackerel have omega-3 fats which is good for the heart.

      8. Exercise.

      Leave your car if you are only going a few blocks from home, take the stairs instead of the elevator, jog, cycle or skate. Use these activites and other home chores if you are too lazy to go to the gym and take exercise classes. Make sure that you do this regularly and you will not even notice that you are already shedding pounds with these mundane activities.

      It does not matter how much weight you plan or need to lose. What is important is that you set realistic goals for yourself.

      Go slow. If you have already lost 5 or 6 pounds, give yourself a break then try to lose the next 5 pounds.

      Eat healthy, drink lots of water, have enough sleep and exercise. This will give you a higher chance of losing weight and improving your health, which would result to a new, healthier you.

  37. QUESTION:
    good weight loss plan?
    Hey, i'm 18 years old, male and 5 foot 10.

    Over the last 18 months i've worked hard to change my lifestyle and i've lost 4 stone, i'd say medically im now healthy weight and i wear 30 inch waist clothes, so im happy with my work up till now.

    However i'm having trouble with the final layer of abdominal fat and the love handle area, any significant weight loss is much slower now, over the past 2 months ive felt no noticeable change but luckily pictures i'd taken do show changes so i know ive not just hit a wall. But i am struggling.
    I have good overall lean muscle mass, but my abdominal muscles are hidden by that last little bit of fat(i'd be surprised if theres 6lbs left to go at the most) so all the abb work ive done is for nothing at the minute because they're not visible.

    so basically i just want to lower body fat percentage abit to look more toned in the core area.

    My current diet and exercise plan is:

    Breakfast: low sugar/wholegrain cereal or poached eggs on wholemeal bread.

    Lunch: wholemeal sandwich, chicken salad or soup with a fruit salad or diet protein bar.

    Dinner: Chicken steaks, turkey steaks or fish with either steamed vegetables(not potato) or tomatoes

    If ive done more exercise than usual or after drinking water and waiting 20 minutes still feeling hungry then i will have another snack, but it is unusual and always healthy.

    I have 1 cheat meal per week to ensure my metabolism is shaken up.

    Drinks: Green Tea, Water or Black Coffee.(unlimited amount)

    For Exercise: I go to the gym 3-4 times per week for roughly an hour or just over. I do a 2 mile run at 7.0mph on a treadmill, some high intensity interval training on the stairmaster and then i do some light weight high rep circuit training on weight machines.

    My diet is on average 1500 calories a day, i burn off roughly 300 calories each gym session and its high protein, low carbohydrate.

    Any helpful advice would be brilliant thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      green teas is a good idea...but make sure it is the loose kind that you find in oriental shops and not the commerical "tea bagged" kind you find in super markets..find a small oriental shop for this as well as their asian rice is much better quality .

      you can eat how much you like if you stay within these 3 guidelines and still lose fat naturally and gradually. You should lose 10lbs each month on average.

      1.eat only steamed lean meats, eggs, healthy fruits ,vegetables, nuts, grains, & yogurt..2. drink only water, juice, & milk..3. walk or do some physical exercise 1-3 hour every day.

      (btw, recommend you also to buy an electronic food steamer ((Very cheap)) and a rice cooker as makes it very easy to prepare healthy meals)

  38. QUESTION:
    diet for weight loss ?
    I'm a teenager planning on going on a 15 week weight loss plan trying to lost 2 pounds a week. I'm going to burn 500 daily and then eat 500 less--so that would be only eating 1000 calories. how should i eat? i know generally not to eat any white bread or pasta and sweets and chips but i want to know detailed how i should eat.

    peace.

    • ANSWER:
      I, understand the need for the salt and sugar and carbs. I, believe when you first start out ...this is my suggestion. You, should not first of all go cold turkey. You will then crave the things you want and overeat something else. Please, know bread is not bad. I love Subway, McDonalds and etc. Dunkin Donuts just came out with a breakfast sandwich that is on a flatbread with vegggies and eggwhites..EXCELLENT..only 300 calories. You do not have too crash diet and then give up because you want to lose weight quickly and then gain it back or more. Accountability, and Forgiveness are found at the local weight watcher meeting. I love it!! You do not even have to go but cutting back by 1000 calories, per day, is going to slow your metabolism down and you will loose your muscle not fat. 1200, calories is even low but works for me. I never had a weight problem until my 50's. My sister did and lost 100 pounds. You do need to exercise to burn, but remember whether it is a Hershey bar or a cobb salad..they both have fat and calories. Weight Watchers is the best tool to guide you along your program. Talk to one of their people, as when you drop down too fast, then losing more makes it more difficult. I also believe in fasting once a week for 2 meals not the whole day. If you choose weight watchers and walk you will be monitored for eating to less or too much and the same with exercise. Remember, I know people that run, lift weights and eat way beyond their portions and snack...no weight loss. Calories, is what bottom line counts. Water, is the only thing that has no calories. However, you need to drink water..add a lemon in ho or cold...., and if you drink latte's and milkshakes.. that all has to go. The coffee creamers at restaurants are 2 points which is a lot of The fat burning will happen when you start and progress. Two pounds a week is good with 3 meals and a snack. 1200 calories a day or 18-22 points weight watchers..I know I am 5'5inches. I wish you all the best and you will do it. Once you reach your goal you will...weigh yourself every day in the morning, as do NOT go by clothes, as my 9's fit ...but snug in my thighs as I have gained 10 pounds..but they still fit. CALORIES...total answer! You go girl..You can do it!! DO NOT STARVE!!! Walk, Count your intake and buy some new clothes at a nice consignment stores to get you motivated and a goal to fit in the size smaller. Consignment, as will be too small to wear that size month after month of losing. 5 pounds for 7 months is 35 pounds...You will be healthier and a 135 pound girl. When you arrive at that weight...you can continue and before you know it... you will have changed your outlook on life and know that you have the will and the way to never gain the weight back which as important, as losing it. I will be thinking of you and will keep you in my prayers. Remember, I am in my 50's and I can lose weight but at a slower rate as my metabolism dropped. However, nonsense to people who say it's over when you hit a certain age. YOU WILL DO IT...You are a teenager and the magazines at the grocery counter with movie stars have personal cooks, trainers and are disiplined through coaches. When they get hungry they can have someone whip up a 1200 calorie day meal plan. They also can say get me a turkey sandwich, pronto!! We, ordinary people have to cook, choose and decide the meal plan for the day...BASE...your whole life ahead to enjoy food in moderation and on some days it may not be. Just get up and start again!!

  39. QUESTION:
    Is this a good weight loss plan?
    1. start off with a 3 day 900 calorie diet to kick start my weight loss so I will be motivated to keep losing weight.
    2. diet: I am going to try to eat less but as long as I exercise a ton I will lose weight by just eating less.
    3. exercise: jump rope 1 hour, strength training: 20 reps each exercise, run 20 minutes, jog 20 minutes, crunches: 150(50 to each side and up)

    give me any advice for this plan and anything to add or not do, etc.... thanks.....if all goes well I plan to lose 10 pounds in the next 2 or 3 weeks because the weight will come off pretty fast at first.....

  40. QUESTION:
    Will this weight loss plan work?
    I'm 126 lbs (9st), 5'5 and I want to lose 7 lbs as quickly as possible (I'm going on holiday with my boyfriend and super skinny bestfriend in 2weeks and basically don't wanna look fat in pictures). I've tried the usual healthy eating plans and I drink 1.5- 2 litres of water every day but since I usually eat healthy food anyway I haven't lost any weight.

    So for 2 weeks, if I ate this diet plan would I lose weight?

    Breakfast - One banana and an apple.

    Lunch - Salad and water

    Dinner - Steamed fish and steamed vegetables

    I also do 30minutes of cardio every day but I find it too hard to fit in more time to exercise because of my busy life so, would this diet work? And how quickly?

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      People who want to lose weight commonly, and first of all, think about reducing the amount of food they eat. This may be quite a solution but not exactly the best there is.

    would this weight loss plan work?
    i really need to lose some weight!!! so if i start a calorie shifting diet and exercise 3-5 times a week, would i lose weight?
    if you dont know what calorie shifting is, its a diet plan that you eat different amount of calories each day to confuse your metabolism so it will burn more calories or something like that. search it up on google.
    my exercise routine would be something like:
    day 1- cardio for 45 min, pilates workout for 20. (i love pilates!)
    day 2- cardio for 30 min, gym for 1 hour or so
    day 3- cardio for 30 min, and something
    and so on. im going to change it up once i think or find something to do. im doing cardio each time i exercise. like running/jogging, skipping, maybe jump on the trampoline? idk with the trampoline thing.
    and my diet will consist of lots of fruits and vegetables and keep everything balanced. and drinking lots of water!
    do you think this will work? is there anything i should change? HELP! and thanks!

      The only thing I would change would be the snack before lunch should be changed to something more filling than celery sticks. I would recommend walnuts or a pita and hummus.

      If you want to know exactly how long this will take you try this great site http://www.sparkpeople.com to log calories, track cardio, and know exactly where you stand for your goals. Just input your goal weight, when you want to lose it by and the program gives you a daily caloric range to stay within and goals for cardio each day. Its fun putting in how much you did for the day (for example, I walk to campus everyday which takes me about 85 minutes to do this=360 calories, clean for 15 minutes = 75 calories, etc). It also includes strength exercises to do each day.

      Try it for a week and see how much you can do on the site as well as giving you healthy ideas!

  43. QUESTION:
    IS THIS GOING TO CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN OR LOSS? GOOD OR BAD DIET PLAN? STARVING?
    okaaaay so i am a girl, 5'9 and 115 pounds.
    i want to become a solid 110 pounds, not less or more

    **IF YOU ARE GOING TO COMMENT ON MY WIEGHT, DONT BOTHER, I ONLY WANT ANSWERS TO MY QUESTION**

    anyways, i was wondering if this was a good diet plan:
    6 days a week - eat very little (under or around 1000 calories)
    and have ONE splurge day

    will this diet plan work??? any experiences??
    i cant go a week without splurging at least once...but if it would really cause weight gain i would cut it out.
    also, can one splurge day cause weight gain?
    i need any ADVICE/TIPS/PERSONAL EXPERIENCES!
    THANKS!

    for example, today i had:
    a cookie (larger size)
    a sundae( consists of caramel and fudge sauce, whip cream, 2 scoops of ice cream and oreo pieces)
    2 apples
    a vitamin water
    some tomato sauce
    some slices of turkey
    some chocolate

    ^ that would be a splurge day

    • ANSWER:
      No not a good idea. starving yourself wont help. Eat healthy foods if you want to lose weight and exercise. You can eat foods like ice cream sometimes but a splurge day will just add all the calories back on. There are lots of things that say how much fat and calories are in something so watch that. some calories are ok but empty calories are bad so avoid those (if you don't know what empty calories are look it up). Good luck with the diet.

  44. QUESTION:
    How about this for a weight loss diet?
    Im currently trying to lose about 5 stone, from 17, down to about 12, Im 20 years old and about 6 foot.

    Ive had some experience in the past of losing weight, and getting fit, so ive made the below CV schedule and diet plan, that I have been going at for about a month, losing 16 pounds.

    Breakfast: 2 weetabix with Red Milk

    Lunch: Heinz soup 2 days a week, the other 5: Cucumber, Carrot, Lettuce and Chopped apple and Banana.

    Dinner: Chicken Breast with corn on the cob, and mixed vegetables.

    I have fridays as my day for weighing myself, and have this as a treat night varying from curry to pizza.

    In terms of exercise, I go to the gym 3-4 times a week, consisting of 5 minutes of rowing to warm up, followed by an hour of X-Trainer, with a one minute break every ten minutes, followed by 10 minutes on the bike to cool down, and a few resistance machines.

    I was just wondering if ayone has any tips on how I could improve on this, as its going to be a fairly long term project, I want it to be do-able as well as successful.

    • ANSWER:
      That actually sounds very healthy. Change up your dinner every few nights of so just so you don't get bored eating chicken every night: I mean, nothing wrong with chicken, but pork is a nice sweet meat. Also, weigh yourself every other week instead, because otherwise that puts a lot of pressure on your to loose weight faster than may be acceptable for your body. Good luck and remember, you are amazing just for being youself!

  45. QUESTION:
    About how much weight will i lose if i stick to this diet until sunday?
    It's called the sacred heart diet, and I found out about it today so i decided to skip day one and go straight to day2 starting from tomorrow. About how much weight do you think ill lose this week if i stuck to this diet for the rest of the week? (Btw " the soup " is a special soup that came along w. the sacred heart diet weight loss plan)

    DAY TWO
    All vegetables. Eat until you are stuffed with fresh raw, cooked or canned veggies. Try to eat green leafy veggies and stay away from dry beans, peas or corn. Eat veggies along with the soup. At dinnertime tonight reward yourself with a big baked potato and butter. Don't eat any fruits through today.

    DAY THREE
    Eat all the soup, fruit and veggies you want. Do not have a baked potato. If you have eaten as above for three days and not cheated, you should find that you have lost 5-7 pounds.

    DAY FOUR
    Bananas and skim milk: Eat at least 3 bananas and drink as much milk as you can today, along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates, as is the milk but on this particular day, your body will need the potassium and carbs. Proteins and calcium to lessen the cravings for sweets.

    DAY FIVE
    Beef and tomatoes: you may have 10 to 20 ounces of beef and a can of tomatoes, or as many as 6 tomatoes on this day. Eat the soup at least once today.

    DAY SIX
    Beef and veggies, eat to your heart's content of the beef and veggies today. You can even have 2-3 steaks if you like with green leafy veggies but no baked potato. Be sure to eat the soup at least once today.

    DAY SEVEN
    Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juice and veggies, again, be sure to stuff yourself and eat the soup. You can add cooked veggies to your rice if you wish.

  46. QUESTION:
    How can I get motivated and stick to a weight loss plan if I have no support system?
    I'm 22 years old and weigh 251 lbs. I'm a stay at home mom, and taking online classes, so I don't have much time on my hands. I always plan diets and exercise routines, but never stick to them. My husband doesn't understand one bit. He says that I look fine and he loves me and finds me sexy no matter what I think about myself. I love him dearly, but he just doesn't get it. We never have time to exercise together because we have 2 kids and he works 40 hours a week.

    I have one friend, and she used to be big like me, but her boyfriend left her and she just quit eating and was really unhealthy for a long time, but now that she's lost 100 lbs, she's eating healthy and keeping the weight off. I just can't do that. Even if I wanted to stop eating, I don't think I could. I know it's unhealthy and that's not the route I want to take.

    I just don't have the willpower to do it on my own. I have no help, and I desperately need to lose weight. I can't afford a gym membership and even if I could, I'd never have the time. I've always had really bad eating habits. I almost never eat anything before dinner, simply because I'm not hungry. Then it seems like I'm hungry all night long. I just don't know how to get started on a weight loss plan that I will stick to. Any advice will be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      You and I sound so much alike, 'cept I have 4 kids, and are a 'bit' older. My starting weight was 266 and I am down about 20 pounds in 10 weeks. (I took time off when we were on vacation.)

      I have two things that have been helping me.
      1) There is an online site called www.fitday.com. It can help you set weight loss/caloric intake/exercise goals, then help you track how you are doing with those goals. It will tell you how many calories you need per day to maintain or lose weight. You can input what you eat and how much you exercise (if any) then it tells you how many calories you have burned and how many you have left. It is free for the basic site but you can pay a monthly fee for some upgrades. I am sure there are other sites that are like this one, if it doesn't appeal to you. There are online support groups too, but I haven't tried one of those yet.

      2) I have been using the SlimFast 3-2-1 plan. (THREE 100 calorie snacks per day, TWO of their meal bars/shakes, and ONE regular dinner per day.) It was really hard for the first couple of weeks, but has been getting easier. The main thing is that YOU HAVE TO EAT throughout the day. You may think you are doing good by not eating until dinner, but then your body is starving and you end up eating everything you see. You need to eat starting first thing in the morning to make your metabolism start burning calories -- hungry or not! The fitday website helped my track the snacks/meals too.

      One thing that I had to realize is that this is going to be a longterm mission. I didn't get this way in a few months, so I cannot get 'slim' in a few months. This is going to take a while. To be honest, I was too heavy to do much exercise other than trying to haul my behind around the block each evening. Now that I am down a few pounds I am able to move a bit more, so I am expecting a bit more 'forward progress.'

      If this old lady can do it, so can you!

    is this a good weight-loss plan?
    I know fad diets are only temporary, but i was thinking about starting off with 2 weeks of the "sacred heart diet" with atleast 3 days of good work out and 2 days of moderate exercise. Then once the excess pounds are dropped, continuing a sensible but pleasure diet plan with the same exercise.(Taking only a break during vacations this summer.) I am 17, 4"11, and my guesstimate weight is 113. Any opinoins? helpful ideas? And please dont say i dont need to weight, cause i know my body and where i want to be. thank you:)
    Well the thing is, I'm a cheerleader. And being so short, I'm a flyer(girl who gets put up in the air) so I just wanted to shed a few pounds to be lighter then keep off that weight, not lose more or gain it back

  49. QUESTION:
    Tips to improve my weight loss plan please?
    Hey.
    I'm currently 155lbs and i want to get to around 130.
    I'm still at school, so i can't do a lot during the day. But from next week i will have access to a gym, and can possibly do a run early in the mornings. Other exercises for now, include skipping, running, cycling and walking.

    Here's where im confused, the diet plan.
    I was thinking:
    Breakfast - Bran flakes? or Yogurt and fruit. I heard egg was good?
    Snack - Some sort of fruit - or suggestions :) ?
    Lunch - I will bring chicken salad to school, in a medium container.
    I can't have an afternoon snack till around 4, so should i forget that and have dinner around 4-5?
    And what would be good for dinner? I don't think i could cope wih 2 salads a day. So suggestions please?
    Also - Is it okay to have beans, maybe for breakfast? And if i run in the mornings what/when should i eat breakfast?
    Thanks in advance! + could you please add any other effective tips?

    • ANSWER:
      most important thing is to do this naturally..without medicines, chemicals, "starving" your self etc.

      first, it would be best for you to eat as healthy as possible..this will also help you considerably to lose weight gradually and naturally..

      eat fresh fruits, vegetables, drink plenty of WATER..avoid all cokes, caffeines, smoking, alchohol etc. as these also add weight as well as they contain chemicals which disturb your natural bio rythmns as well as brain chemistry. try not to eat too much meat, and the meat you should eat should be "lean meat" such as steamed chicken and rice, or steamed fish with rice..and vegetables,, this should be your staple diet rice and vegetables with fruits..AVOID "JUNK FOOD" and "Fast Food" as this type of food is very unhealthy, lacking in vitamins really and has plenty of fattening molecules which make one gain weight and is not good .

      if you snack,, try fruits with yogurt or fruit yogurt and nuts.. nuts are very healthy for your body .and contain proteins.

      go for walks every evening or morning or whenever you get time each day for 1 hour or 2 hours..make this somewhere you enjoy walking even if you have to drive a bit to there..and make this a daily routine..you will enjoy it once you get into it ..and it makes you feel great after..just walking for 1 hour or 2 hours.

      if you do this..every day for one month ..you should lose at least 10 pounds per month until you get to your natural healthy weight..dont know what your height is,,but look up on the internet what your weight for your height should be ..and when you get to this weight,,your body will look very nice and you will feel very good.

      10 pounds each month in 6 months you should lose 60 pounds..for sure...but no junk food and dont drink alcohol or smoke, dont eat junk..just healthy food with vitamins and walking 1 hour or 2 hours every day..and drink plenty of water..this is guaranteed way to lose weight naturally and for good, if you stick to this, which you should,,as it makes you feel so much more positive due to the vitamins and lack of chemicals making you feel depressed...

      btw, forgot to mention,,just in case you dont know how to really make healthy meals..buy a "food steamer" at your local deparment store..they are very cheap and work very well..as well as buy a "rice cooker" which is also very cheap..eating rice is a great way to get your necessary carbs "healthy carbs" to lose weight and has lots of natural energy inside. you can buy asian rice at most large supermarkets or if you have a local oriental market..they sale quality asian rice.. thai or indian rice is good "jasmine rice".. buy corn or canola oil to sprinkle on vegetables or rice before steaming to add to taste as well as you can buy several nice spices like "cumin" or "Curry powders", etc.just sprinkle on the vegetables before steaming to give nice taste.

      drink "Green Tea" as this is very healthy and helps burn weight faster...you can buy quality green tea at most oriental shops or large supermarkets as well.

      good luck

2 Day Fast Diet

Nowadays, everyone wants to lose weight - especially women. 98% of women and over 60% of American men are on a diet for at least some part of the year. Just like most of the population, you've made a resolution to lose weight this year. Maybe you want to look great for the summer, maybe you want to look great for an upcoming wedding. It really doesn't matter. What matters is you're desperately looking for diets that work fast for women. Here are 2 diets that work fast for women.

Low Glycemic Index Diet

Before I explain why a low glycemic diet works best for most people, especially women, it's important to understand what glycemic index is. The glycemic index is a measure of the effects of carbohydrate on your blood sugar level. Obesity is due to high sugar levels in the blood. In order to keep your blood sugar on an even keel, you need to lower carbohydrate intake.

Best Diet For Diabetics and Pregnant Women

A low glycemic index diet works best for women who are diabetic. It's also an effective diet for pregnant women. Gestational diabetes is common in pregnant women. A low glycemic diet will increase the likelihood that the baby is born healthy. A low glycemic diet helps women stay in control of their weight because the foods they choose are low in carbohydrates.

  5. QUESTION:
    Will I lose weight faster if I binge then purge some of it one day then fast the next OR do the 2-4-6 diet?
    The 2-4-6 diet is where you have 200 calories one day, 400 the next, 600 the enxt, and then start all over again. I already have an eating disorder and my mind made up, so please do not tell me hoe stupid and dangerous it is because I can not stop. I'm already really sick, so don't worry about me making myself sick.

    • ANSWER:
      If you binge and purge, it won't make you thinner,

      When you don't get enough calories, your body just stores it as pure fat, and to amount of throwing up or starving will get rid of it.

  6. QUESTION:

  7. QUESTION:
    Will I lose weight faster if I binge/purge some of it a day then fast a day OR do the 2 4 diet?
    The 2-4-6 diet is where you have 200 calories one day, 400 the next, 600 the enxt, and then start all over again. I already have an eating disorder and my mind made up, so please do not tell me hoe stupid and dangerous it is because I can not stop.
    Again...I ALREADY HAVE AN EATING DISORDER!!! I can't get any sicker! I just want to lose weight!

    • ANSWER:
      Don't binge and purge, it makes it harder to eat anything you like. Say you eat a bag of chips then purge soon you won't be able to eat one chip without eating the whole bag. 200 calories would suck. I would suggest eating 600 calories and exercising everyday. Drink a lot of water it can really help if you are hungry. If you can get things like celery or apples, they are very low in calories but you get to chew a lot so you feel more full. And if you eat say 20 pieces of celery that's only like 100 calories so you won't have to purge.

      Don't drink soda or fruit juices if you can help it. They won't fill you up put still contain calories.

      You seem quite young so be careful. If your body wants to grow. ( become taller) Which would in turn thin you out naturally, if you aren't eating enough you won't grow as much.

  11. QUESTION:
    If you walk 1 to 2 miles a day and diet can you expect to lose weight fast?

    • ANSWER:
      I am afraid not!
      Walking 2 miles at an average pace takes no more than half an hour and burns about 50-100 calories. In a week this would be only about 500 calories if you do it every day. Remembering you burn off calories anyway when you stand still, you need to burn off 3,500 extra calories to lose 1lb in weight so it would take you 2 months or there abouts to lose this 1lb if this is all you do!

  12. QUESTION:
    What do you think of this for a 40 day detox diet ?
    Well I'm very overweight for a start & have descided to go on a 40 day fast/healthy eating kick starter. I am totaly addicted to sweets and choc & i need to cut them out as I just can't seem to do moderation.

    My aim is to just eat fruit, veg , plain yogurt &nuts for 40 days.. plus water & pg tips! (can't quit tea!)
    after that will introduce brown rice & fish, eggs...

    Today I had

    Homemade lentil soup with broc,onion,garlic,carott,red cabbage & brussels sprouts (2 sml potatoes)(saucepan full through the day)

    Greek yogurt -brazil nuts & walnuts(about 3 each), grapes, kiwi and apple (2 x portions of)

    So is that nutritionally ok ? will be doing that with variation on fruit and soup ing for 40 days.
    I feel ok on it - not really hungry.

    Is water really that important for dieting & energy ?

    • ANSWER:
      So much better than those dangerous detox recipes.
      There is protein in lentils, but you might need a bit more.

      We aren't full of toxins, all we need do is eat a sensible diet and our liver, kidneys take cate of the rest.

  13. QUESTION:
    How much weight can I expect to lose on a 14 day fast?
    I am 5'3" and a healthy size 6 at 140 lbs. In the past year and a half I gained a lot of weight. I currently weigh 180 lbs. College does that to you! I am beginning a 14 day fast of only water. On the second week I will also begin an hour of cardio a day (I know this doesn't sound healthy at all). After the 2 weeks I will begin healthy and balanced diet. I know I will gain some of the weight back at this point. But I want to know this - What can I expect to weigh on the 15th day?

    • ANSWER:
      Twenty-eight pounds or less -- or you could kill yourself with an improper fast and loose 180. A water only fast ( which is a true fast ) is about two pounds per day or less. It may or may not show up on the scale the first few days. You may show nothing and on the fourth day register six pounds less.

      Please be advised that a fast takes double the time to finish. If you fast one week you should not resume a normal intake (healthy or not) for another seven days. If you fast two weeks it should be four weeks before you are back to eating three squares a day.

      Breaking the fast is more critical and harder than starting the fast and you can seriously injure yourself if you pig out, even at the end of a three day fast. To come off a two week fast with a normal intake of food is asking for serious pain, physical and possibly emotional trouble or shock.

      If you have the will power for two weeks why not do four four day fasts for a total loss of 32 pounds. You avoid the stage where you may become extremely weak and to resume eating is much easier and straight forward.

      After four days or under seven days break with fresh fruit for two or three meals; light soups the second day and the third day green vegetables. Then back on the eighth day to another four day fast and so on.

      Avoid milk as it may cause bloat or go with a little goats milk the second or third day

      On your plan I think you will show a loss of no less than 19 pounds even if you do not exercise. It could be as much as 28 pounds.

      If you get down to a your proper weight in a fast, and take the full time to come off the fast, you will not gain back a lot of extra weight, especially if your water intake is good and your body Ph is in balance. Good luck, study up on fasting and be kind to your stomach.

      Two week breakin following two week fast:::::: if you insist. .

      On the 15th day, at your end weight, I would have an intake of about four liters of pure water (daily) with at most three tablespoons of apple juice or other fresh juices (morning, noon and night with water). Day 16 I go with tablespoons of grapefruit or orange juice (morning, noon and night). The addition of sauerkraut juice in day two, three or four will help. Fresh tomato juice with no seeds is also an option. Day five you can go to grapes with no skin or seeds and grapefruit wedges. Maybe chew a tablespoon of raisins or trail mix real fine Days six, seven and eight more fresh fruits of various types. Chew very well. Days nine, ten, eleven, variety of light soups. Days twelve, thirteen and fourteen green veggies and slowly back to healthy diet.

    3 DAY JUICE FAST, THEN 800 CALORIE DIET. HELP Me!(: .?
    i am 177 right now. i want to lose 50 pounds. i am 5 foot 8 and im 14. i will go on a 3 day juice cleansing fast, then actually start an 800 calorie diet. if i eat almost the same thing everyday, my calorie intake would be about 780-800 per day. how long do you think it will take me to shed the 50 pounds? i will drink about 12 glasses of water per day and eat VERY healthy, i also have 2 hours of cheerleading 5 days a week, i also do about 1 or more hours of cardio and strength training every day. how much weight should i lose per week at the rate im going, and how long will it take to lose 50 lbs?

    • ANSWER:
      Scratch all of that except for the cardio, cheerleading, and strength training. A fast and dangerously low calorie diet is flat out BAD for anyone...let alone someone who is still growing. All of the excercise you're planning alone is going to melt that weight off pretty quickly. Eat sensibly....no less than 1200 calories a day and alternate cardio and strength training every other day. Sensibly means lots of fruit, whole grains, veggies and lean meats...nuts etc. I'd shoot for a weight loss goal of about 10 months if you're looking to permanantly lose instead of getting yourself forever in a pattern of yo yo dieting. Also, A goal of 127 might be a bit thin on a 5'8 frame. Closer to 140 might be ideal for you.

  15. QUESTION:
    If a person diets on an 800 calorie a day diet and jogs 2 miles everyday how much weight would they lose in?
    2 weeks? How fast will they lose the weight if it does happen?
    How many days will it take before it starts showing on the scales that their losing weight?

    • ANSWER:
      First, that is not enough calories, but if someone eats 800 calories a day they will lose weight fairly quickly. I can't say how much weight or how fast because it depends on how much you weigh to begin with. A very obese person is going to lose weight much faster than someone who is only a few pounds overweight. However, it is best to take a diet slow and lose no more than 2-3 pounds per week. Starvation diets often fail because they leave you craving food and then you binge or overeat after awhile. I have done this many times over the years and I usually end up right where I began or weighing more in the end. Your body is smarter than you give it credit for. Dieting takes weeks/months if you want to lose a great deal of weight. In the end, it is all about changing your eating habits and exercising. Best of luck to you.

  16. QUESTION:
    I want to start on a 2 or 3 day fast, probably a juice one. What juices can I drink that are store bought? ?
    I've been dieting lately, but then lost the roll I was on. I'm a compulsive eater, so all of a sudden I just have to have something lol, it's sort of funny. Anyways to kick start a new set of dieting I want to start a fast, I was thinking a 2 or 3 day juice fast. However, i don't know what to really do. I'm not sure what juices I can drink, and I don't have the money or the time (i'm a college student) to hand juice all my juices for the day. How much juice a day should I drink, and how much water? Should I dilute my juices? what store bought juices can I drink? Thank you! Any help is appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi
      I'm a fairly healthy person and "walk my own talk" in the field of natural health, but let me tell you, I had to mentally prepare for the 40-day juice fast that my husband and I completed last summer. These are some of the things we learned from our research and by doing the fast.

      General Juicing Rules:

      • Drink freshly prepared juice and do not store the juice for over 24 hours. If you can’t drink it immediately, put it into a glass jar (filled to the top) and put a lid on it to prevent oxidation. Juice rapidly loses therapeutic and nutritional value during storage.

      • Raw fruits and vegetables are not always compatible when eaten together. Apples are the exception. You can also mix pears with Jicama.

      • Melons should be juiced by themselves. Making the entire meal melon is an option.

      • Avoid using pre-bottled or sweetened juices. All the live enzymes are inactivated when they are pasteurized.

      • Juices don’t stimulate acids to be released from the stomach, but orange and tomato juice are high in acids and you may want to mix these juices with other less acidic ones.

      • I’ve read that cucumbers may not be good to mix with other vegetables as they are in the melon family, but it seems to work fine for us. We do limit cucumber to less than 25% of the total volume however.

      • Don’t add more than 25% green juice to your vegetable juices (unless you have a barf bucket handy!)

      • Juicing Greens—you might want to do this in between harder vegetables, the juice sludges at the bottom and doesn’t pour out easily if you juice them first. For example, I juice a couple of carrots, then a bunch of parsley, then cram a couple more carrots in after the parsley to get the juicer moving again.

      • Dilute all fruit juice with water (one part juice to 2-4 parts water) and drink throughout the day. We’ve found that 2 cups fruit juice blended with ½ tray of ice cubes comes up to 4 cups—the perfect dilution and it’s frothy cold.

      • Vegetable juices need not be diluted.

      Tips for a Better Fast:

      • Your pre-fast diet should include several days of higher volumes of raw fruits and vegetables. You may also want to add the “Excelsior” drink to your diet ahead of time. See recipe below this section.

      • Get plenty of exercise outside is best to get that oxygen flowing.

      • Sunbathe if possible—10-20 minutes of direct sun per day.

      • Take hot and cold alternating showers or baths.

      • Sleep with a window open so that you can get lots of clean fresh air.

      • Use Enemas—A fast does not always help eliminate impacted waste materials from the colon, so plan a colon-cleansing regimen. Enemas can cleanse when taken once or twice a day. Fasting without the aid of enemas allows toxins in the colon to be reabsorbed. This can poison the body and the organs of elimination (particularly the kidneys) which become over-burdened and damaged. For complete instructions on how to take an enema, see the link in the resource box.

      • Avoid negative influences. Do not listen to terrified relatives and “friends” who will warn you that you will pass out at any moment and starve to death. Stop reading all the grim reaper parts of the newspaper and turn off the news. It will be there when you complete your fast. Focus on positive, wonderful thoughts and surround yourself with uplifting music, books, and movies.

      • Continue with normal activities, but minimize overly strenuous physical or mental work.

      • No coffee, soft drinks, cigarettes or anything else by mouth. Your health care supervisor may prescribe some nutritional supplements depending on your case. Many clients say this is the easiest way to quit smoking.

      • Do not chew gum while fasting. Avoid mints and hard candies. They promote the release of digestive enzymes and makes you really hungry. Following the fast, there is a loss of appetite for caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, sugar, and junk foods.

      • Cut back on some supplements and medications. If you are over 65 you will want to take your daily vitamins (if you are on them) during the fast. You will need to discuss this with your health care team as to which medications should be continued with a fast. Usually most medications and supplements are withdrawn during a fast, but exceptions occur—especially when they have to do with the endocrine system (e.g. Insulin, thyroid, heart medications, etc.) And even though juices provide lots of nutrients, some physicians recommend use of an abbreviated list of vitamins and minerals for elderly fasters.

      • If you are hypoglycemic, have someone supervise your fast. You may need to add a protein drink to your program or add some egg white powder to your juice.

      • If you wear dentures, keep them in during your fast so that your gums will not shrink.

      • Do take time out for naps if necessary.

      Fasting dips: A fasting dip occasionally happens during fasting as toxins are loosened and cleansed from the body, cell by cell, even within deep tissue. At certain times of

    I know its not healthy to drop weight that fast, but if Im working out like crazy 2 hours a day on an elliptical its healthier right?

    • ANSWER:
      No, your body will go in starvation mode and you will actually gain weight. Trust me it happened to me. Take in 1500-1800, and burn 2000-3000. I lost 60 lbs in 4 months.

  19. QUESTION:
    Is it alright to fast for 2 days before starting a diet?
    Just drinking water and green tea.... no food.
    Will it help clean my system out, or will it make me gain more weight when I start eating again?

    • ANSWER:
      You will gain weight when you start eating again because if you just consume water and green tea your body will think its starving and then when you start your diet your body will take all the nutrient's and store them as fat. Hope this makes sense. If you want to fast for 2 days try a juice fast. Just juice fruits and veggies for a week and you will lose 5 pounds. Then slowly start eating whole healthy foods. :D

      Also I found a great website about dieting and what kinds of food you should eat and things to help ya out with a diet. Hope this helps ya!

      I got this from a guy who had to lose body fat for a wrestling weigh in. Too bad it is only good for 20 pounds. If you lose more than that, get off the diet IMMEDIATELY. It give your body a chemical shock and should only be used for the time given no more.

      Hope this helps.

  21. QUESTION:
    10 day fast.?
    Starting today, I'm on a 10 day fast, only drinking diet soda. I'm currently 5'4, 126 lbs. I'm 16. How much weight am I likely to lose by 2nd October with lots of cardio exercise and gymnastics training?

    • ANSWER:
      Fasting can be good for you IF done properly! Yes, fasting slows your metabolism, but it's also a great form of detoxification, ridding your body of all of the nasty toxins we put in it through fast food, junk, etc. But, if you're fasting on diet soda, you're just adding more toxins and chemicals to your body...totally defeating the purpose. It won't accomplish anything except make you tired and cranky. If you really want to fast, try fasting on natural fruit and veggie juice (NOT bottled juices) so you're getting the proper nutrients. Then, when you come off of your fast, eat only fruits and vegetables for about a week. Remember to drink plenty of water and walk for exericise...nothing more strenuous than that; you won't have enough strength. But whatever you do, don't fast on soda; that would be defeating the purpose of the fast. For a ten day fast, you'll lose a lot of weight quickly--the water weight-- but if you come off of it properly, you'll probably lose somewhere around five to ten pounds.

  22. QUESTION:
    Going to start a new diet and exercise routine. Is it okay to do a 3-day fast?
    Just to start off I'm not planning to starve myself forever or hoping for some magical weight loss trick!

    Usually I eat whatever I want (not healthy stuff) and exercise whenever I can (1-2 times a week). I'm not really overweight or anything. I just want to lose about 15 pounds, so I'm going to start eating healthy and exercising 3-5 times a week. I plan to start this Monday, and
    1)I wanted to know if it's okay to do a 3-day fast from Friday- Sunday?
    I know if you starve yourself for long periods of time your body goes into starvation mode and that's not good either.
    2) Will I still gain the weight I lost during the fast, if I start to eat healthy and exercising?
    3) Is it worth doing it?
    4) What can I expect?
    I was basically just going to drink a slim fast around 2pm and then another one around 6pm (380) calories total.
    5)Is that okay for a fast?
    6)Any tips or other info?
    Thanks!
    Oh some other questions I just thought of
    7) Should I try to be active? If so how active?
    8) Should I drink a lot of water?

    • ANSWER:
      I don't really see why you need to do a fast and I think it's absolutely not worth it. It's hard enough to start a new, healthy regime. Why make yourself feel like crap? Only 380 calories every day for three days in a row is a recipe for feeling awful, if you ask me. Headaches, light-headedness, feeling cranky, tired, irritable, and possibly even dizzy (low blood sugar) and experiencing heart palpitations due to mineral or electrolyte imbalances. And yes, it's entirely possible that you will be so starving by Monday that you'll eat lots to make up for your three days of eating virtually nothing--and there goes your new plan. These kind of extreme measures sound like the first step to an eating disorder and in my opinion it's best to avoid it. Even if you were overweight (which you admit you are not), starving yourself, even for "only" three days, is no way to get healthy. Your body knows when something bad is happening to it and will set off all kinds of alarms to try to get you to stop.

      If I were you, I'd consult your doctor, a nutritionist, or even a school nurse (if you are in school) for help designing a new eating plan: I strongly urge you to do this. Making sure you get enough good fats (avocado, nuts, olive oil, etc.), protein (lean fish, chicken, beef, etc. or beans if vegetarian), and complex carbohydrates (whole grain breads and pastas, brown rice, etc.) and lots and lots and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables is a much saner way to be healthy--these are the building blocks of a good diet. And drinking lots of water to stay hydrated is always a good idea.

      If you feel generally gross right now or bloated and want to "cleanse" or take a break from junk--there's not need to do anything drastic. Try eating no sugar for three days, but instead eat a healthy diet with sufficient calories for your current weight with lots of fresh veggies, fruit and fiber (along with your protein, fats, carbs) and drinking lots of water (perhaps with lemon). See how you feel after three days--that might be enough to make you feel better and more energetic. Probiotics (the healthy bacteria in yogurt) can also help with bloating and digestive issues, if you are simply "feeling" fat or the ill effects of too much processed food.

    Is a Fast good for starting a diet?
    Could i do a quik 2 day fast and shrink my stomache before i start my 100lb weight loss journey?or will i be so hungry ill stuff my mouth?

    • ANSWER:
      You have to work with yourself, you need to set goals, say in 6 months you want to have lost 25-50 lbs, if you reach your goal your on track. You have to count caloies, maybe start at eating 3,000 a day, then when you have no trouble with that go 2,500, then to 2,000, you will want to add a excersize program, start out slow and then build on it, add to it, start say with a walking 2 miles everyother day, 10 sit ups, 10 push ups, when that gets easy add to it.

    • ANSWER:
      The damned reason you're not losing any weight is because you're fcukin' starving yourself.

      Your body's just storing things as fat now.

      You need to eat at least 1200 calories and exercise off 500 calories per day.

  27. QUESTION:
    Is this an ok 3 day diet?
    Ok well i was going to do just a 3 day water fast, but my mother refuses to let me eat nothing. So I said that I would just eat a total of 500 calories a day for those three days, drinking just water. All i have had to eat was 4 spoons on raisin brand cereal with soy milk, 10 rits crackers, and some wheat bread. I'd say altogether that was about 320 calories or more and I have drank a lot of water today( I have a 64oz bottle). Tomorrow and the following days I plan on having 5 crackers for breakfast lunch, and dinner along with maybe some veggies and fruit added in. I plan on working out at least 2 hours a day.
    Also I do not need any lectures from anybody on how you think I am being unhealthy because I really don't care about what you have to say, just flat out excising is not working for me at all, might as well do it the easy way.

  29. QUESTION:
    One meal a day diet.. questions!?
    For, about 2 months.. I've been on a on-off "diet". I know I was over weight, at 5'2 I was 165 pounds. I've grown an inch and I'm now 142.

    I've got this plan, where I fast all day and night, and eat only at dinner. It's easy for me, because I've never been one to eat breakfast.. I spend most my time at school, which is impossible to get food from during the day. I tell my mom I'm coming home for lunch, so that way she never gives me money to buy something. There's another meal skipped. I last through the few next few classes and go home to sleep. I wake up at around 8:00 PM, and eat my dinner. I can last a few hours after that, but I always take my pills that kill my hunger, or drink green iced tea. Then I stay up all night on the computer, to keep my mind off food. (Which I'm doing right now..) ! I can last threw the next school day and repeat the process. On weekends, I basically stay on the computer till 12:00PM.

    I stopped from around my birthday (April 6th) To last week. When I stopped I didn't gain anything back, like a lot of people warned might happen. The first time I did It I went from 165 - 154 in about a week and a half. Now since summer and my 9th grade grad is coming up, I'm trying to get to be around 120. I started my diet again on may 25th. I was 154 and now, on June 4th, I weigh 142.

    My graduation isn't for 20 days, I'm worried that in a week or two when I've lost the 22 pounds I need to, I won't be so lucky. What if my eating habits get worse? What if I gain everything back this time and more? I've been taking those pills (Which helps your metabolism) and drinking green iced tea, (Which does the same). I take all the vitamins I need, I know people will tell me to stop, but I'm not going to.

    My main questions are; Will I be unlucky this time, and everything back + more? Or will I even be able to continue loosing weight for 2 more weeks?

    As soon as I get to 120 I'll slowly get my eating habits back to the way it was ;)

  30. QUESTION:
    I am on a 600 calorie diet per day I am trying to loose 35 pounds fast. I run 2 miles every day. Is this bad?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, depending on your body you need at least 1200-1600 calories a day while dieting. It is not healthy to only eat 600 calories a day. Actually you need to eat in order to lose weight, just eat food low in fat and calories and eat smaller portions about 6 times day. Stay away from bread.

      If you stay on this diet eventually your body will shut down or you will get burned out on not getting any food. Just exercise and get about 1200-1500 calories a day and you should be fine. You should only be losing about 2-3.5 pounds a week to be healthy. You're basically starving your body and it will shut down or you won't lose weight because your body will start storing food because it won't know when you will eat again.

    So what diet will have me lose 5 pounds OF FAT in one day.
    A water fast...?
    I don't know.
    I needs helps D:

    • ANSWER:
      Let's do the math. You need to burn 3500 more calories than you consume in order to lose one pound. So, you are talking about burning 17,500 calories in one day. An average woman consumes and burns anywhere from 1400 to 2000 calories per day. So even if you ate nothing at all, you would only lose about 3/4 of a pound per day. If you include hard exercise, then you could increase your rate of calorie burn, but only about 1000 to 2000 calories at most. So theorically you could lose five pounds per week by eating next to nothing while working out vigorously all day long.

      If there was an easy way to lose five pounds in one day, then don't your ink that it would become a very, very popular diet.

  33. QUESTION:
    How long does it take to lose 40 Pounds If I walk fast for 2 hours a day and Im Dieting ...?
    Im 18, 5 foot 2 and weigh 138 pounds . How long will it take if I do this...?

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on how many calories you're cutting from your normal diet, although by the look at your stats, you don't need to lose any weight at all.
      Assuming you're walking at a moderate pace (3-4mph) you're burning probably between 540-600 calories each day you walk for 2 hours.
      Without dieting, it would take you approximately 37 weeks to lose 40 lbs.
      Considering you're dieting, assuming you remove 500 calories from your daily diet, it will cut this time in half making it about 18-19 weeks to lose 40 lbs.
      The more calories you burn from your diet, and the faster you're walking, the less time it will take.

  34. QUESTION:
    22 Day Fast, Only Water?
    I've started a 22 day fast, the only thing I am having is water (about 5-8 glasses a day) Is their anything else i should be doing? I'm thinking of taking a multi-vitamin around lunch time.

    Also i'm working out at the gym for 2 hours a day, every other day.

    Feeling pretty week right now, just didn't know if get's easier as the time passes, i think i almost fainted last night.

    I'm pretty determined, or dedicated to do this, because i've already been eating very little due to weight loss goals, so i wanted to do something that would be a real sacrifice to me to make this fast mean something.

    Thanks for any help and suggestions. :)

    Additional Details
    Wow! Really???.... Maybe you all should learn to read first! This is a fast! not a diet! i have already lost 100lbs in 4 months, i can do all the proper diet and exercising on my own. THIS is for spiritual and religious reasons ONLY! so enough with all this "not a proper way to loose weight" crap! I can do that on my own, this is not the reason for my fast. So now, if anyone has anything to add that isn't related to loosing weight, but rather keeping myself healthy and not feeling drained, those answers would be much appreciated. Once Again... I'M NOT DOING THIS TO LOOSE WEIGHT!!!

    Thanks :)

    BTW, the fasting i'm doing involves no FOOD! so why would you suggest eating fruits???? Maybe you have never heard of what fasting is... (sacrificing something you want and need in order to pray for something you want and need more). Also i'm just doing the gym to help keep my muscles, since i know my body will start using them for energy, the gym isn't a must, but i thought it would help me not loose all my muscles.

    • ANSWER:
      Some years ago I completed a 40 day water-only fast and I recently completed a 44 day water-only fast, without any health problems, so 22 days won't do you any harm.

      The only additional thing I fed to the body was a little salt, from time to time, whenever it got cramps.

      You say you are doing the fast for spiritual reasons, as I did, and that is good, although it is also good to fast for health reasons, because the body cleanses-out all the toxins which it has accumulated and burns them as fuel, while you are fasting.

      You have to understand while you are fasting the body, that it is NOT you. It is the garment* that you - the spirit-being or soul is currently wearing. Talk to Father, and ask Him to explain this concept to you, and ask Him to provide the strength the body needs, to be able to do what you want it to do, while you are fasting it.

      You will find that if you try to do anything too quickly, or strenuously, the body will black-out on you. It is to teach you Calm and to think things through thoroughly before you do them, and do them very deliberately wihout any wasted effort. Or to put it another way - to teach you God-speed in everyhing you do.

      You will probably find that you will have to cut-out the working-out at the gym, as time progresses if not immediately. Don't worry, the body only uses fatty-tissue for fuel and doesn't use the muscle.

      You will also have to be careful to not allow your body to feed on emotion, which is another form of food for it. That is anger, fear, agression, self-pity, envy, lust, vanity, etc. - all the 7 deadly sins.

      It is better not to tell anyone you are fasting**, while you are doing it, because they will always try to talk you out of it, with lots of nice sounding, but totally human, reasons.

      The true spiritual-objective of fasting is to weaken the body and its ego and selfish desires, so you can get control over it, rather than it and it's irrational emotions being in control over you. If you feel you haven't achieved that goal of complete control after 22 days then keep going. It has to know that you are prepared to take it to death, before it will relinquish the throne to you. What doesn't kill the ego/self, makes it stronger. It is better to look at the fast as being open-ended and that it will only end when you have achieved complete control over your body.

    Does The New 2 Day Diet Pill Work?
    Hi My NaMe is Melissa i want to lose weight fast i need to lose 40 pounds by April does any one think i can do it with the 2 day diet pill????????????

    • ANSWER:
      Well, everyone would LIKE to lose weight fast. LOL I am going to tell you honestly that you can lose weight by April, (not 40 lbs) but enough if you eat a good diet and exercise. None of these "amazing" diet pills work or are good for you. I assume that when you lose the weight you would like to keep it off, right? then nine of these magic pills are going to help. Do it the right way.
      The FDA has issued safety warnings for any diet meds that have this ingredient in them- sibutramine. It is like taking amphetamines!
      bad idea. There have been heart attacks, strokes ans yes, death, associated with these pills. Is it worth dying to lose weight? NO. I have lost 80 lbs over the years, and kept them off by using my head, eating a lot of fruits and veggies, no sugar, no fats, and exercising regularly. find some exercise that you like to do. It is not worth killngyourself over some pounds that you are perfectly capable of losing without taking something that may kill you, or mess you up for the rest of your life. Amphetamines are addicitve. I do not know how old you are, but you are old enough to know netter. I am 53, so I definitely know better. Plus, do some reading up on it. Do your research!

    I am running 2 miles a day..how fast can I lose 20lbs??
    I have 3 children 3 1/2 years and younger. I have lost 19 pounds since THankgiving initially from diet change and now I am up to running 2 miles a day doing sit-ups and push-ups. I am 5'4 and weigh 149lbs. I have cut out ALL carbs, except fuits, and eating all protein and drinking 80-90ozs of water a day. I am currently in a 10 almost an 8....I would like to be in a size 6 and lose 20 lbs by June...any tips?? How fast do you think I can lose going at this rate

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on how many calories your are cutting out on when you had your diet change and cut out carbs. Carbs are energy (calories) and you need them but if not used then they become fat.....As long as your burning more calories then your intaking then you will lose weight. i think you have a great goal set. 20lbs before june is achievable. I would say that if you stay at this pace, i would say thath by march you could lose 15-20lbs. One tip i will give though is when you run listen to music. It helps weight loss and keeps your mind off running ang then you dont get as tired as fast. Good Luck!

  42. QUESTION:
    Will u loose weight fast if you only eat fruit and vegetables?
    There's a 7 day diet that boosts your metabolism. It only lasts those 7 days but it works. In the first few days, you'll burn between 7 and 15 lbs. It's called the prefast diet. It takes away your cravings for anything unhealthy too. Go over to www.worldprayercenter.org. Click to enter. Then find the prefast diet on the righthandside of the screen. Click there. The diet works but it's really tough to last the 7 days.

    Pre-Fast Diet

    Below is a pre-fasting diet which will helps cleanse the body from toxins, but stimulates metabolism of your body. You will probably lose seven to twelve pounds in one week, depending on your present body weight.

    6 large green onions, (scallions - but we used regular onions), 2 green peppers, 1 or 2 large cans of tomatoes, 1 bunch of celery, 1 large head of cabbage, 1 pkg of Lipton Onion Soup Mix.

    Season with salt, pepper, curry, parsley, etc., if desired, or 6 bouillon cubes. (Note: Half of this recipe was made and used according to following instructions by two people for four days. We kept it continually hot in a crock pot.) Cut vegetables in small to medium pieces and cover with water. Boil fast for ten minutes. Reduce to simmer and continue cooking until vegetables are tender. This can be eaten anytime you are hungry. Eat as much as you want, whenever you want at any time of the day. This soup will not add calories; the more you eat, the more you lose. If eaten alone for indefinite periods, you would suffer malnutrition. Fill a thermos in the morning if you will be away during day.

    Day One. All fruits except bananas. Your first day should consist of all the fruit you want, except bananas. Cantaloupes and watermelons are lower in calories than most fruits. Eat only your soup and fruits the first day. For drinks – unsweetened tea, cranberry juice, or water.

    Day Two. All vegetables. Eat until you are stuffed with all the fresh, raw, or cooked vegetables of your choice. Try to eat green, leafy vegetables and stay away from dry beans, peas, and corn. Eat all the vegetables you want along with your soup. At dinner time on this day, reward yourself with a big baked potato and butter. Eat all the soup you want this day, but don’t eat fruits.

    Day Three. Mix day one and day two. Eat all the soup, fruit, and vegetables you want. You CAN’T have a baked potato this day.

    IF YOU HAVE EATEN AS ABOVE FOR THREE DAYS AND HAVE NOT CHEATED, YOU WILL FIND THAT YOU WILL HAVE LOST FIVE TO SEVEN POUNDS.

    Day Four. Bananas and skimmed milk. Eat as many as eight bananas and drink as many glasses of skimmed milk as you can on this day along with your soup. Bananas are high in calories and so is the milk, but on this particular day of our diet your body will need the potassium and the carbohydrates, proteins and calcium to lessen your craving for sweets.

    Day Five. Beef and tomatoes (or salad). You may have 10-20 ounces this day. Try to drink as many as 6-8 glasses of water this day to wash away the uric acid in your body. Eat your soup at least once this day.

    Day Six. Beef and veggies. Eat to your heart's content of beef and vegetables this day. You can even have two or three steaks if you like with green, leafy vegetables but no baked potatoes. Be sure to eat soup at least once this day.

    Day Seven. Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables. Again, stuff, stuff, stuff yourself. Be sure to eat soup at least once today.

    BY THE END OF THE SEVENTH DAY, IF YOU HAVE NOT CHEATED ON THE DIET, YOU WILL FIND THAT YOU HAVE LOST 10-17 POUNDS. IF YOU HAVE LOST MORE THAN 15 POUNDS, STAY OFF THE DIET FOR TWO DAYS BEFORE RESUMING.

    This seven day eating plan can be used as often as you like. As a matter of fact, if correctly followed, it will clean your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well-being as never before. After only days of this process, you will begin to feel lighter, at least 10 and possibly 17 pounds, and have an abundance of energy. Continue this plan as long as you wish and feel the difference. This diet is a fast, fat-burning diet. the secret is that you will burn more calories than you take in. It will flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well-being. This diet does not lend itself to drinking any alcoholic beverages at any time because of the removal of fat buildups in your system. Go off the diet at least 24 hours before any intake of alcohol. Because everyone’s digestive system is different, this diet will affect everyone differently.

  44. QUESTION:
    1000 calorie a day diet?
    I'm 4'11 and 110 lbs. I'm not looking for a fast diet or anything, because I don't want to lose a lot of muscle and I'd also like to keep the weight off. I've heard a lot of different things...some say 1000 calories a day isn't healthy and others have said that it's too much.
    I don't exercise a lot (maybe jog 30 min. a day, 2-3 times a week) cause I just hate it =P
    Opinions? Is this healthy? Will it work?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey, I found this awesome website. It calculates how much you burn in a day and how many calories you should eat to lose weight. The website is: http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm

      One pound of fat is equaled to 3,500 calories and a healthy weight loss is 2 pounds a week.

      Also I have no idea what Psyche was talking about. The normal calories consumed for a girl to stay the same weight is around 2,000 calories NOT 5,000. If everyone ate 5,000 calories a day we would all be fat/obese. Even 3,000 is really high... Anyways, that website is pretty accurate. I know this because my brother is into health and the body and he is a body builder, he knows everything on this topic.

  45. QUESTION:
    I take a Slim Fast in the morning. Can I add Whey protein to my diet during the day? Or 2 many supplements?

    • ANSWER:
      I wouldn't recommend it. I have a slim-fast shake in the morning, also, and I just eat two or three slices of chicken as a snack later in the day. It's a good source of protein.

  46. QUESTION:
    What do you think of the slim fast 321 diet?
    In this diet you get to eat, 3 snacks a day including fruit, slim fast snacks and veg, 2 milk shakes or slim fast bars and a balanced meal during the day. It is not as bad as the previous ones, but what do you think. Obviously it is not as good as exercise and cutting down on the rubbis

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds good to me. Fruits are always good. Here are things to keep in mind as well.

      Choose low-calorie foods. Avoid sweets, cakes (especially those with icing), ice cream, sweet desserts, candies, pies, and chocolates.
      Eat less fat. Avoid pork, fatty meat, skin.
      Eat only a maximum of 3 egg yolks per week.
      Reduce salty foods.
      Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day between meals.
      Avoid tea, coffee and alcohol. Alcoholic drinks are high-calorie beverages.
      Avoid milk shakes, chocolate drinks, soft drinks, sweetened juices.
      Increase fiber intake. This will make you feel full without gaining too much calories since fiber is bulky. It is also the weight controller's best friend. Eat more leafy vegetables, whole grains, and fruits.
      Choose legumes, fish, poultry, and veal which contain less fat and cholesterol than pork and beef.
      Cook foods plainly. Avoid butter or fattening sauces.
      Eat regularly. Never skip any meal especially breakfast.
      Avoid in-between meals. Drink water instead.
      Eat a good breakfast and lunch but have a light supper. If you plan to skip a meal, choose supper instead of breakfast. Follow the lowest allowance given in the Food Pyramid.
      Exercise regularly.

  47. QUESTION:
    how long to wait between meals on 3 day diet?
    im on the 3 Day Diet and its my second day. I ate breakfast at around 7 and know its 12. Should i eat now or wait until 2? I am told to drink alot of water in between and have no snacks. Has anyone tried this diet? what did you do? and dont tell me its unhealthy because i want to lose weight fast. thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Become your own snack fairy. It’s okay to snack between meals, really. Small meals throughout the day are enough to keep you satisfied, as (much like the sensation of being full) you never want to feel hungry. Let your body know it’s going to get a regular regimen of calories. Plus, if you starve yourself for the regular meals, you’re probably going to eat more before your brain tells your mouth to stop. Think about it: breakfast, lunch, and dinner are social constructs at their very core.

  48. QUESTION:
    5 DAY fast?
    How much weight will i loose?
    i shall only be drinking warm water and lemon on a morning then water during the day and maybe the odd diet coke, only 1 or 2.

    • ANSWER:
      No diet coke. Ecspecially on a fast. They will make your body turn acid and kill off any enzymes your body is using to remove toxins. Plus they are just plan not good for you! I can tell your doing it just to lose weight. Fasting is a tool people use to cleanse their body from harmful toxins they've been taking in over the years. It takes alot of preperation and not just something you just jump into. You need to build up your electrolyte reserve if you want to be safe. Other wise fasting can be seriously dangerous, because your body will start to use up its own limited mineral supply to remove toxins and feed itself while on the fast. You should start buy doing a raw juice diet and help build up your electrolyte minerals by eating alkaline forming foods (raw fruits/vegetables), and then you can go on a water fast. I gurantee you already have an over acid body, ecspecially how you talk about diet coke. The goal is to bring it up to a healthy PH, which is above 8.0 in the bile. Get some PH papers so you can test it.
      Trust me, you do not want to ignore this! You can do your body great harm.

    • ANSWER:
      i advise you to drink green tea 1-3 glasses per day
      green tea speeds up your metabolism
      drink lots and lots of water 8 glasses each day.
      do not snack
      do not drink soda
      go on the half off diet only eat half of what you would usually eat and give or throw the rest away
      if you are really hungry and you've had all your daily meals snack on fruits ( oranges, apples, bananas )
      exercise more try and run for at least 30 minutes a day
      get more active
      get more sleep it prepares your body
      stretch, yes it works and it doesn't just help you lose weight it helps with you're growing to make you a little taller
      count your calories try to stay under the amount of 1300 calories per day
      change you're lifestyle it makes a difference
      do not eat candy or chips eat more greens or protein bars
      avoid fast food and cut out fried food when you cook your meal oven cook your food do not fry it
      chew gum because when you chew gum you do not pick at food for example if theres some chips in you're cupboard you go to them a think good damn they look good then you would say no i cant pick at them because i dont wanna throw my gum away
      do not eat after 6pm because before 6pm you can burn all you're food off and if you eat after six it will lay on you're stomach as you eat.
      do not eat before you go to sleep
      drink a glass of water before you go to sleep
      eat spicy food, if you can because it speeds up you're metabolism

      good luck!
      you can safley lose 2 to 3 lbs. a week

      I would say 5 diet and exercise!
