A Weight Loss Plan For Teenagers

When you are a teen who has weight problems, we have the solution for you, with the easy to follow weight loss plans for teens.

The most important thing for you is to stay away from all these unhealthy ways to reduce weight, like weight loss pills and stackers.

We will introduce you to some simple tips to follow weight loss plans for teens now:

Activities:
Most teens might not have the money to join a fitness club but what you can do is take part in activities that happen in school. This will give you at least enough opportunity to exercise each part of the body. Sports come in various choices when it comes to activities; i.e., soccer, softball, tennis, athletics and more.

Walking:
Exercise is one of the most effective ways to lose fat. The thing is that walking also keeps you fit and most importantly healthy.
Buy a pedometer and attach to your waist, this will help you to keep track of how much you have walked. Don't start of with to long distances, but let your body accumulate to it. You can begin with a mile or so and then when you feel comfortable with it, you can increase this with a mile a week.

Avoid Eating Fast Food:
Avoiding fast food can be quite a difficult, especially for the teens because this type of food is simply addictive. The more fast food you eat, the more you want. Also carbonated drinks count in this matter. These drinks also have a side effect, sugary drinks makes your body want fat, and fat makes your body want something to drink. This is the outward spiral effect. Hence, it is very important to learn to eat healthy when you are young because once you get hooked onto fast food during your teens, it becomes really difficult to let go off this addiction. If you can bring up the courage to avoid fast food, this will help you as an adult.
Many adults who are overweight began starting to eat this fast food when they were young. Probably their parents did not know how to eat healthy, but this does not necessarily mean that you cannot change your habits. Always remember, life will be much easier if you learn to eat healthy when you are still young.

  1. QUESTION:
    definite weight loss plan for teenager?
    okay so i am 15, and i have made a commitment to loose weight. i feel that if i stick to a plan i will be able to reach my goal, however, if i just wing it and say that i need to excercise without actually having a set schedule, i think ill tend to blow it off. does anybody have a schedule of their own which they abide by? or know of a website that has a plan? i dont need a website that tells me to burn 250/500 calories a day through excercise, i already know the basics i just need a schedule type thing. any help/tips would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I learned that if I don't work out first thing in the morning, I tended to not work out. A lot of people I have talked too, do the same thing. EVERY MORNING! Get up 1/2 hour early and walk. After a while, get up 1 hour early. It does work. Come up with a rout you can take that will take you away from your house, say a mile to start with. Then turn around and go home. You walk a mile in a straight line from your home and you will be forced to walk back the same distance.

      I was 6ft, 246lbs, 50+ inch waist. Now I'm 170lbs, 34- inch waist. I'm buying myself all kinds of new clothes.

  3. QUESTION:
    weight loss plan for a teenager?
    I am 15 and i am only 4'11". I would like to lose like 20 pounds. I weigh around 117 right now. I need a good weigh loss plan. Like what type of foods to eat and what and how much exercising to do.. I am home-schooled so i can take breaks throughout the day and stuff. But i am a musician so i spend alot of time practicing my piano. I would also like to lose most of my weight off my stomach and thighs. So can anyone help me PLEASE! thank you so much for your time!

    • ANSWER:
      20 pounds- is a bit much. 15 pounds is more realistic and healthier for your height, body type, gender and age. But sure I'll give you tips to loosing 15 pounds.
      - stick to only drinking water through out the day (no soda or fruit drinks)
      stick to snacking on fruits or small portions of protein through out the day (ex: apples, grapes, peaches, nuts, cheese sticks)
      - stick to eating only serving size at each meal (ex: have a bowl of cereal- but only have a cup of it- no more than just stop). make sure you get protein and whole grain at every single meal.
      ex: breakfast: u may measure a cup of cheerios w/ skim milk and hard boiled egg
      and then at lunch you may have whole grain bread w/ lean turkey deli and then at dinner you may have some sweet potatoes and grilled chicken-that would all be healthy.
      - also try to stay away from red meat- sticking to chicken, fish, turkey, cheese, soy, peanut butter, nuts, hummus, and beans for your protein
      - eat around 1300 calories would be ideal and exercising about 30 minutes 5x a week would also be ideal.
      just become more mindful of what your eating. a sample 3 day plan would look around something like this
      Breakfast:
      cup of multi grain cheerios w/ cup of skim milk, banana and 2 tbsp peanut butter

      Lunch:
      whole wheat pita, tuna, low fat mayo, lettuce and tomato and baby carrot sticks w/ hummus dip

      Dinner:
      cup of cheese tortelini pasta w/ tomato sauce, cooked broccoli

      Snacks:
      1) apple
      2) cheese stick
      3) orange

      Breakfast:
      cup of cooked oatmeal w/ raisins, hard boiled egg

      Lunch:
      2 slices of multi grain bread w/ smoked turkey deli and celery sticks w/ tbsp peanut butter

      Dinner:
      medium slice of baked fish, some brown rice, cooked carrots

      Snacks:
      1) fat free yogurt
      2) handful of dried apricots
      3) banana

      Breakfast:
      plain yogurt, berries and two granola bars

      Lunch:
      whole wheat pita w/ egg white salad, lettuce, tomato, cherry tomatoes w/ hummus dip

      Dinner:
      two slices of pizza (take off the cheese) and add turkey chunks on top (lower in fat), salad, light dressing

      Snacks:
      1) handful of peanut nuts
      2) grapes
      3) banana and cheese stick

  4. QUESTION:
    Is this is a good weight loss plan for a teenager?
    I'm 15 years old, 5'5, 121 pounds or 8.8st and I wear a size 8-10. I know my BMI is well within normal range but BMI isn't a reliable indicator of how normal your weight is when you are still growing. I'm quite chubby and the fat isn't spread evenly (I would like to sort out my legs, thighs, stomach and arms). I will be in a bikini for most of summer so I need a good body in about 2 months. Am prepared to put dedication to losing weight and toning up, I want to lose about 10 pounds.
    I have made a weight loss plan for myself so can people tell me if this is okay and suggest exercises to help tone the areas mentioned above?
    Plan:
    Breakfast (6.45am)-glass of tropicana smooth orange juice, a banana

    Snack(11am)-an apple

    Lunch(12.40pm)-slice of ham, potato salad, iceberg salad(no dressing or croutons), glass of water and an apple.

    Snack(5.30pm)-a banana, cup of green tea

    Supper(6.30pm)-something hot and healthy(nothing too sugary or fatty), glass of water and an apple.
    I walk briskly for about 40 minutes total each day. I do sport for an hour two times a week, and on days I don't have sport I plan to jog for 30 minutes after dinner or before. I walk dogs for an hour one day each weekend. Should I jog the other day too?

    I also plan to abide by these rules:

    Only green tea
    No white bread
    No chocolate
    No fizzy drinks (soda in america)
    No junk food
    No cakes, muffins etc.
    I do need to lose weight, I am very chubby. I don't think the weight statistic is a realiable indication of how the fat looks on me.
    Also as a toning stomach exercise I'm moving my legs up and down at a 50 degree angle 50 times three times a day.

    • ANSWER:
      The thing is, your a healthy weight. But just being a healthy weight doesn't mean your healthy. I wouldn't recommend a "diet" but eating a balanced diet is the way to go.

      If your looking to firm up, just try and include lean protein with your normal eating. Also, take up sports or just exercise to the point of being comfortable, but don't over-exert yourself.

      The diet you've shown is very healthy, but the only thing I could commend is Breakfast and Snack- with those you can eat normally for the rest of the day.

    Does this sound like a good weight loss plan for a teenager?
    I am a fifteen year old girl who is trying to lose around 20 pounds.

    *Options*

    2. Dance for 45 minutes:
    5 minutes of stretching
    10 minutes of Ballet Barre work (I am a dancer....been dancing since I was 3 years old)
    20 minutes of freestyle tap
    5 minutes of conditioning (leg lifts, crunches, push ups etc.)

    4. Pilates 20 minute workout and one mile bike ride

    The best weight loss plan for me?
    I'm a teenager. 5'3ish and around 210 pounds. (Big, I know) Is there a certain weight loss plan I could follow that would be more effective?

    • ANSWER:
      Im 15, i hate my weight, but what i have seemed to notice is that the more i go out the more weight i lose, as i am out a lot and eating less.. So i suggest you just try being more active, there is no need to do weight loss plans as they can be boring and sometimes not worth it, just do what your happy doing and eat what your happy eating but maybe have smaller portions...

      good luck

  9. 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 =)

  10. 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!!

  11. QUESTION:
    Is this is a god Weight loss Plan?
    Now I am a young teenager who really wants to lose weight. Now I am not going to starve myself or anything like that and it's not just an "awkward phase" or anything of the matter. So basically My diet would be like cereal for breakfast, a PB&J on whole wheat or a vegetable soup for lunch, then dinner would be either a vegetable soup, or anything healthy around the house although I may occasionally splurge a bit. So then my exercise would be a 30 or 45 minute intense cardio workout from the Nike Workout Program, a Abs and Stomach Yoga Session, and running on the treadmill for 20min - 1hour. So I wanna lose about 30 pounds by 7 months or by summer. So any help would be appreciated and I wanna know if this plan will work. Also I feel very guilt when I splurge and was wondering how to go about this. Please help!! Thanxs!!

    • ANSWER:
      How about you go running around the block every day? Or at least walk it.
      That would do it if you really want.
      You will lose weight if you eat less calories than you consume.

  12. QUESTION:
    Weight loss for teenagers?
    If a teenager wanted to lose weight, what workout/diet plan would you recommend for her?

    Personally I want to lose 15 pounds. I exercise 1 hour a day, sometimes more, with strength training and cardio.

    What would be the best diet? Is it best to watch portion sizes, count calories, or eat impeccably healthy?

    Thanks and no ads.

    • ANSWER:
      You may have no extra weight to lose, dear- just a thought. Muscle weighs more than fat, and if you are working out to the extend you say you are, you probably don't have much to lost. Unless you also eat like an elephant, and eat a lot of high calorie things. The best diet is a sensible balanced one. As long as you are a teenager, you are still growing. You grow inside and out, so it's not always visible. Calorie restrictions are not a good idea, as it limits the amount of building material you have available to do the work of building you and doing repairs. The best diet is one that provides a good balance of things, with no particular food being bad or off limits. The FDA site has a lot of really good information about what a teen diet should be like, to help you make the wise choices. In the end, it does come down to calories though. If you eat more calories than you expend over several days time, you gain weight. If you eat fewer calories, you lose. It's not the intake of any one day that tilts the scale, it's a matter of several days or a week that are most important. So it's an average dailly intake of calories that you look at, using a week's worth of calorie intake to get the average. Portion size would play into the calorie counting, obviously. While there aren't any bad foods, there are most definitely foods you should eat less of, less often than others. Your diet should be heavy on the whole grains, fruits and veggies, and light on fats and sugars. Obviously, you want to avoid much in the empty calorie category, like soda- but then again, a soda every so often isn't going to kill you either. Offset a high fat, high calorie meal with a low fat, low calorie meal. It's a matter of balance, really. A little of what you crave and a lot of what is good for you. The key is moderation, not excess and not deprivation. Check out the FDA site, and go from there.

  13. QUESTION:
    Is this a good weight loss plan?
    I'm a young teenager (I'm not overweight I'm average) that wants to lose 10 pounds by mid June (if that's practical) I excersize on the oliptical machine for 20-30 minutes a day 4-6 days a week, i'm eating healthy, total ceral for breakfast with maybe a fruit, for lunch a salad and a fruit and for dinner usually chicken or some sort of meat (no bread or rice except for whole wheat, is tht ok?)

    • ANSWER:
      well just try to remember to have a complete balance of all the food groups as much as possible and if you can switch up what kind of exercise you do that will help. for example do some crunches/sit ups or similar exercises in combination with the oliptical. Try to exercise different parts of your body different days of the week. Finally, make sure to eat a larger meal for breakfast and slowly make your portions smaller as it gets closer to bed time.

  14. QUESTION:
    Weight Loss Plan for Me?
    Hello, I am about 5'3 and 17. I weight 132 last time i checked. My weight is mostly in my thighs and butt, so thats the target I want to loose weight in and tone up. I know you can't just target one area but if I could, thats the part I would. I eat pretty healthy I would say. My diet consists of cereal in the morning, school lunches (which are supposed to be healthy), and then usually pasta or meat for dinner. I can't really do that 5 meal a day plan because I have school and teachers don't let you eat during class. I wouldn't mind bringing my lunch but it has to be something quick and easy to make, so any ideas? I exercise, but not much. Probably about 3 times a week for about 25 minutes (running). Please, when answering, keep in mine I am a teenager who cannot cook and doesn't have access to a gym or that much time for that matter (homework). Any help would be great :D . I want to loose about 15-20 lbs in 3 months. I know, not healthy, but whatever. I really want it gone by the summer :D .

  15. QUESTION:
    Do you think this weight loss plan will work to lose at least 10 or 15 pounds in about 2 months?
    Okay, Im a teenager and female. Besides what's listed below, I also play basketball (practice is twice a week), and laugh a ton every day (which is good for abs).
    This is my plan for the next 2 months or so. If you could, tell me what I could add or change and do you think this will work if I stick to it?! Thankks!

    - Drink nothing but water and milk.

    - Go on a 30-45 minute walk or jog each day.

    - Excersize. (Crunches, squats, etc.)

    - Eat no more than 1,200 calories each day.

    - Eat 4 meals a day. (Breakfast, lunch, after-school snack, and dinner.)

    - Eat lots of raw fruits and veggies.

    - Drink 8 glasses of water a day.

    • ANSWER:
      If you have access to a swimming pool go swimming you will burn a lot of calories. If not then I suggest you try going to your local school that has a track and jog for 300m sprint 100m repeat that till you are tired. You will burn more calories after the sprint. Every 3500 calories you burn more then you take in you lose 1 pound of fat. Make sure you take two days off a week so your body can rest. You can reach your goal so good luck and I hope this helps a little.

  16. QUESTION:
    What is some good feedback on my weight loss plan?
    I am only a teenager guy, but I am 5'6-5'7 and weigh 180 lbs. I started to go to the gym and really haven't changed my diet that much. I actually have a little bit of muscles but I have been going to the YMCA for a few months, I work hard there and I don't see any progress. My doctor said I need to lose weight so what I do at the gym is go there for an hour and do 50% cardio and 50% weight lifting. I so a lot of the tred mill but I'm starting to think the elliptical is better. So I need more progress. Any suggestions? do I need to drink more water, eat less and go to the gym, or anything else would really help me as a future adult.

    • ANSWER:
      Keep up the weight lifting. Building muscle should be a primary goal. I'd switch up your workouts so you don't mix cardio and weight lifting. Go 5x/week, do weight lifting with barbells for 3 of those days and cardio for the other two. You'd get better results by dumping the tredmill and the elliptical and do a more crossfit-type of cardio workout. Things like 5 assisted pull-ups, 10 pushups, 15 squats, repeat and do as many rounds of that as you can in 20 minutes. It's short and very effective.

  17. QUESTION:
    what are the side effects of my weight loss plan?
    My goal:
    To lose 50 pounds in about 2.5 months

    i know that it isn't a realistic goal to set but im determined and im a teenager whose 5'3 so my metabolism should speed up and its worth a shot...

    for breakfast and dinner: slimfast chocolate drink
    lunch: Baked fish sandwhich with egg and vegetable chips
    snaks: additional slim fast snacks

    drinks: water and occasionally crystal light(10 calorie drink)

    i also run on my treadmill an hour a day
    and workout at a gym 3 days a week....

    so what do you guys think?
    is it possible?
    and if there are any suggestions please tell me but i absolutely will NOT use any pills..
    thank you so much:)

    • ANSWER:
      sounds like you need more protein and more veggies. try adding some tuna in, i know mayo is bad but you can use no-flavor yogurt (also good for calcium). Try to eat an apple a day, or some kind of fruit, it will help keep you regular and has lots of nutrients that you need. If and when you reach your goal be careful not to rebound, continue to eat healthy and just remember not to go overboard on portion size. Good luck drink lots of water and seek the guidance of your parents, the school, nurse, or better yet your doctor while you are doing this.

    Hi, I'm a 5'2, 16 year old girl (becoming 17 in a month). I weigh about 143 pounds, but I'd like to be at 133. How long would this goal usually take? I already plan on eating a 1500-1600 tops diet with healthy foods, and I'm going to join cross-country, use the eliptical at home, and maybe some weights. I'm going to devote at least an hour a day, 5 days a week, to exercise.

    There's advice I've heard from my parents that running 6 mph for an hour, 5-6 days a week, would lose 10 pounds in a week. Any validity in this?

    Thanks guys!

    • ANSWER:
      I'm 14 and 5'6. I went from 153 pounds to 138 since July.
      I have gone completely off of starchy carbohydrates (no potatoes, corn, rice, wheat or other grains)-- it's hard to stick with at first, but it will get easier and soon your carb cravings will completely go away. Same with sugar-- no soda, candy, baked goods, or foods drenched in sugary sauce. If I get a sugar craving, I have a little bit of dark chocolate (70% cocoa or higher, so the antioxidants in the cocoa make up for the sugar) or berries and whipped cream (homemade whipped cream only requires 2 tbsp of sugar for every pint of cream).
      For breakfast I usually make a protein shake with half a banana, a few frozen berries, a scoop of whey protein powder (MRM or Designer Whey brand), a splash of coconut oil or coconut milk, and about a cup of raw whole milk. Lunch is usually a salad with sliced turkey or ham, garlic, cucumber, green onion, celery, lemon juice and olive oil, or tomato slices topped with sliced turkey or ham, bacon, garlic, cheese, avocado and basil. Dinner is whatever my mom or I have cooked, minus the starchy part. Instead of tacos in shells or tortillas, or pasta with meat sauce, I will just eat the meat and toppings out of a bowl. If we need to get fast food, I get a double cheeseburger "protein style" from In-n-Out, or a low carb six dollar cheeseburger from Carl's Jr (these have lettuce instead of buns), and no fries.
      I am now going to the gym almost every day, doing a balance of cardio (30-50 mins high resistance elliptical, varied settings, 450-650 cals burned each workout) and weights (mostly arm & shoulder/upper back/lat exercises). Every morning I walk my dog about 3 miles. I also like going for bike rides and skating at the roller rink, though I do not do either daily.
      No matter what you do, though, you cannot lose 10 pounds in one week. 1-3 is a more realistic goal. Running is actually not the best way to lose weight, plus you need a lot of practice to develop the proper running form so you don't hurt yourself. On a treadmill or a trail, I tried to get into it for a while and it's just not my thing. But you can always try it and see how it goes!
      I know how frustrating it is to be overweight. All my life I was fat, and therefore self-consious, shy, tired and hungry all the time. I could never find clothes that fit. But now I feel so much better, inside and out.
      So good luck with this, have fun, and stay motivated!

  20. QUESTION:
    Can someone give me Weight loss advice?
    I have tried many weight loss plans before but the two conclusions that I have came to is.

    1) you either have to starve your self or work out 16hrs a day to lose weight.

    2) losing weight is damn near impossible.

    I need to lose weight not just to look good naked lol but to feel good. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. I was raised on a TRUE BLUE southern diet. Fried EVERYTHING! I bet when I was a kid my cal intake was well over 3000 a day. Anyway since I have moved out on my own and plan and prepair my own meals. ( i have been on my own for 8yrs now) I rarely have grease in the house to even be used. I bake fries and not fry them. I donot eat more than one fast food meal a week and I use olive oil to sautaee when I plan on using oil. I ALWAYS have fresh veggies ( carrots and celery) around the house for snacking and yogurt too. I always keep apples and grapes in the house as well. However since I do have a husband I also keep the Not so good for you snacks around too. But I have dramatically changed the way I eat from all greasy and fried foods as a child and teenager to what I consider a healthier version but since I have been on my own I have gained 60lbs. and 30 of those 60 have been since my last daughter was born 14months ago. I weight 242 when I gave birth to her and I weighted 225 before getting pregnant and now I weight 275 I am so dam aggravateded because I do watch what I eat and I get at least two hrs of exerciseze a day when I am chasing my daughter around out side. I do not know what to do and as far as my DR goes I hate having a Fat doctor because she is not as willing to "help" she tested my Metabolismsm and all that good stuff and everything was normal but that was as far as she went. So anyone that can help with any advice please give it. I do tea but to one gallon of tea there is one cup of sugar so its not very sweet.

    help with Weight loss?
    Alright well i just started going to gym like 2 weeks ago, and i havent made any progress, it seems like am like the same like before. I keep going back and forth on weight/how i look in the mirror. And Ive been running a mile everyday/doing weights. I'm 15 and 6'3 and i weight 220 avg. I'm getting tired of being chubby, life fucking sucks when you are. And I'm guessing what is doing this is my eating habit. I have had been cutting off on sweets and junk food but not 100% but its like regular... what a normal person would eat. But idk if its how often i eat or w.e it is, so if anyone know about a weight loss plan for someone like me let me know. or if their a is a diet pill a teenager can take without being destroyed by the inside.

    • ANSWER:
      Just eat right, and make a simple everyday workout plan. How? Simple. Just make an easy workout plan for each weekday at the gym. WeekENDS are breaks.
      MY workout plan goes like this:
      Mondays-Legs (Running, stuff like that)
      Tuesdays-Biceps and triceps (Weights, machines at the gym, etc.)
      Wednesdays-I just take yoga classes at the gym that day
      Thursdays-Sports (Basketball, Swimming, etc. You can do these at the gym)
      Friday- Abs
      Saturday- BREAK
      Sunday-BREAK

      ^^ That's just MY workout plan. Feel free to come up with your own! Also, while you are exercising, Make sure to get lots of water. And down push yourself beyond your limit. That can lead to tearing muscles, so then you can't exercise. Make sure you eat healthy. Eat fruits and veggies! Cut down on ALL junk food.Eat whole meals. Eat whole wheat bread. Eat brown rice. Then you will lose weight in no time!

      Hope I helped!

    Teenager needs help losing weight?
    I am only 13 years old and I am 50 lbs over weight. I want and need to lose weight and gain mussle in my arms and legs and maybe get some off my stomach and get a lil bit of abbs. So is there any weight loss plans or diets or training that would work for me?

    • ANSWER:
      Dont do diets. Just dont. Listen to me. DONT!

      OK well before ANYTHING, the key is to excersize. You should get at least 60 minutes a day. Go to the gym with your parents and ask the people who work there.

      Eat right. No more junk. Basically, follow the food pyramid and eat more fruits than you should.

      Go to quixtar.com and browse the Nutrilite Vitamins. I have like all the varieties and theyre really good for you along with Perfect Water. The water is very pricey but very good for you and definately try the vitamins.

    I'm 16, about 5'6, and currently 141 pounds. Since the end of May, I've lost 11 pounds and I'd like to lose about 10 more in the next six weeks. I know the basics-eat healthy, exercise, and drink water. But I'm stuck in kind of a rut and I need help! I exercise 2x a day (an hour and a half total), eat four small meals a day, and I'm working on cutting out junk. I don't drink soda and I try not to overeat.

    • ANSWER:
      Go jogging around dinner, then when you get back you wont be as hungry but you can still eat. Also if you have a pool try doing as many laps as possible. Dont eat protein bars, they are processed and not too good for you, instead try eating nuts and fruits with nutrience that the body can easily utilize.

      hey :)
      I'm sixteen too and have been losing weight for a wedding where I'm a bridesmaid
      what I have been doing is for breakfast I have either fruit salad with a little bit of yoghurt or one small piece of whole grain toast with NO butter

      For lunch I have sliced raw carrot and celery with tzaziki or hummus or a salad with chicken for protein

      and then for dinner I have either a piece of grilled chicken or fish with vegies and salad
      or a weight watchers meal, but you have to be careful because some of them have a lot of calories

      and then you need to exercise!
      I go to the gym every morning and do 10mins on the bike for warm up
      then 45 mins on the treadmill running for 5 mins at least three times during
      and then weights for 10 mins

      hope this has helped :)

    I want a healthy diet, but not to lose weight?
    I want to eat healthy, because I feel a lot better and more energized after doing so. I do not need to lose weight, so I don't want a weight-loss plan. What I am asking for is some ideas to put me into a routine of eating healthy foods. Such as: certain foods you might recommend, stuff that seems healthy--but really isn't, or whatever else you feel I should know.
    I am also a teenager which limits the authority I have other what I can, and cannot buy.

    Well, thanks in advance :)
    NOT trying to lose weight.

    • ANSWER:
      eat lots of fruit. i cant say enough what grapefruit and apples and bananas do, but those are awesome ways to start. make smoothies! =) also, ive found that peanut butter does a great job in maintaining weight as well as giving you lots of good protein and vitamin E. also, drink lots of water, and perhaps take a multi-vitamin. i take one-a-day, and it seems to help regulate my eating habits.

  28. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know a diet plan for teenager or that's easy to follow?
    I'm so frustrated cause I want to start a diet to loose weight and I've been searching around and what i find is simply more blah blah on diets or this crazy recipes that must be done with tons of condiments and stuff that I don't have or don't eat, specially in school so I would really like to hear from some of you guys and your experiences with weight loss and some diets that have worked for you.

    • ANSWER:
      School meals tend to be made with a lot of preservatives and fillers to be cheaper. For that reason, when I was in high school, if I needed to lose weight, I would exercise first thing in the morning (starting with cardio and moving to weights) and only eat vegetarian meals for lunch. Take your salad dressing on the side and dip your bites in the dressing to get light dressing. Finally, avoid snacking, but if you have to snack, eat raw foods, like apples or oranges, since they taste best and are the most filling. For dinner, it is fine to eat a full meal with grains, meats, and fats, but be sure your serving for each meal is the size of your fist.

      There's no such thing as an easy diet. Any "easy" diet (Slim Fast, hCG, Atkins) will not last and will cause you to gain weight twice as fast.

  29. QUESTION:
    Teenagers using Weight Watchers?
    I'm overweight and really want to get my weight and lifestyle to a healthy state. I'm currently 5'4 and 175 pounds. I am a 16 year old girl. (please don't scrutinize me, like one user did). I am considering using Weight Watchers online since it seems easier to follow. I will do that along with 45 min of workouts 5 days a week. Does that sound like a good plan? I want to lose about 40 pounds hopefully in a year or less. Does that sound realistic? I've realized weight loss is a gradual process and I want to be healthy, not thin. I've tried a lot and nothings really fit well for me, so I'm hoping this will work. Thoughts? Also, has anyone used Weight Watchers? Thanks a lot! (-:

    • ANSWER:
      I think that out of any diet programs, weight watchers is the most healthy way to lose weight. You should aim to lose about 2 lbs a week, that's a healthy amount and will help prevent you from plateauing. If you're committed, then this is an excellent program, it gives clear guidelines on what are healthy options and what are not which helps make a lifestyle change instead of a flimsy diet. I did weight watchers and found it to be an excellent program.

      Best of luck to you!

  30. QUESTION:
    I am at a rut right now in my weight loss!!!! Any help please?!?
    I know when attempting weight loss there are necessary rules one must follow like limit your intake of carbs and sugar, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, make sure you get enough protein, exercise so you burn more calories than you consume in one day. This maybe easy to follow for some people but i am having EXTREME problems with this.

    1. My main problems is the intake of carbs and reduction or cancellation of sweets in my diet. I'm still a teenager so this is very difficult to follow especially if you have other siblings and your whole family could care less about your goal of being healthier in fact they'd try to stop you! well of course i mean me. Not only that but its really hard to limit carbs when your food supply is made of say 60% unhealthy carbs! and i can't continuously ask my parents to go shopping every week to get me fresh veggies or whole grains when i need them. On top of that we don't have much money right now so to save money when food shopping my mom always buys the cheap and easy white bread and simple spaghetti huge bags of rice microwavable waffles the generic frozen pizzas and sugar induced cereals. She tends to also buy food right after work so we never get a say so in what we want. once again on top of THAT im half Hispanic and even though we don't live in my moms country anymore she still cooks like we do. by that i mean rice in almost every meal or something fried, not that i eat anything fried blah! but the rice is hard to resist when she prances with it around on a platter, rarely does she involve any fruit or fresh veggies into the party as her favorite dish is rice beans and chicken. not to mention its hard to go all ancestral i your diet when we live in modern America and one is surrounded by fried greasy fatty sugary carb filled eats and if one does manage to revert to the natural way of fuel it surely tastes bland and boring. How do i overcome this for my own health????

    By the way Sunday is my chance to change this cause we're going grocery shopping. Can anyone please give me a list of healthy foods fruits and veggies to buy to get me on the right track???

    2. What fruits and veggies do you advise i eat? im not really asking what will help me lose weight, im asking what will get me healthy cause i plan to stick with this diet of fruits veggies water and so on. not on the quick path to one time success but on the journey to prosperous longevity! Sounds cheesy...

    3. How much protein should i eat if intend to lose weight while simultaneously toning up? Specifically what kind of protein such as fish or whatever else has protein.

    4. When they say burn more than you eat if i plan to it 1217 tomorrow do i have to really burn more than 1217 calories?! if that's the case then whats with all that crap about 30 minutes of exercise a day will help you stay healthy! not that i do 30 minutes or intend to do that minimal amount and expect results from it. I really don't want anyone saying join weight watchers cause im a teenager and don't have a job let alone support from anyone so that would be out of the question.

    my intention is to lose 14 or 16 or 20 pounds, whatever weight i look best at but i need a plan that i can follow for the rest of my life.

    • ANSWER:
      You have the perfect attitude to adopt a healthy eating lifestyle and be lean and healthy for life (most people lack this and will always be overweight and unhealthy). It's not going to be easy in your household though, because when you eat bad foods (sugar, white flour products and processed foods) you get cravings for more bad foods (due to the huge insulin spikes they cause which gives you low blood sugar). When you eat 5 healthy balanced (complex carbs, protein and good fats)meals a day, those meals will trickle glucose (blood sugar) into your system and you won't get low blood sugar, therefore you won't get cravings for crappy foods (quick sugar fix). Healthy food doesn't have to taste bland. Oatmeal tastes great if you add fruit, no sugar added syrup, cinnamon, diet yogurt and skim milk. Oatmeal is one of the best fat burning foods out there (as long as you don't shovel the sugar on it). Instead of sour cream on baked potatoes, I whip up 1% cottage cheese with green onion, garlic and spices and it tastes better than sour cream and now you are eating very low fat protein instead of a ton of saturated (bad) fat. You seem to be good at finding the right information, so just eat like bodybuilders eat (they have it down to a science on what foods are healthy, fat burning and muscle building). When you eat right and exercise you will be amazed how fast your body will burn off any extra fat (I lost 45 lbs in 4 months and added muscle, so I probably lost 60 lbs of fat and now I'm ripped) and you will feel GREAT all the time. I did this while having one cheat day a week where I eat what ever and don't worry it won't hurt your progress, it will actually help because when you are on a calorie deficit diet your metabolism will want to slow down and by overeating a bit one day a week it will kick it back into high gear.

      You don't have to burn all the calories you eat with exercise, because all your body functions (heat, digestion, pumping blood...) burn most of your calories. A 200 lbs person needs 2000 (10 x body weight in lbs) calories just to be alive (no exercise).

      I could right a book here, but all the info you will ever need can be found for free at "Scoobys home bodybuilding". That guy really knows his stuff and he has a wealth of knowledge on his site from nutrition to working out.

      Just do the best you can while at home and get serious when you move out in a few years.

    I am a teenager and a little overweight. My vacations are going on now,and I need to become leaner in 2 months time. I am going for an inch loss program at VLCC,but I dont think its enough. I want to lose oodles of weight. Please suggest a good workout plan and diet tips so that I can lose a good amount of weight within 2 months and have a leaner body.....
    Thank you! :)

    • ANSWER:
      Glad to Help! Well theres no easy way out unfortunately so the remedy for this is to do lots of cardio everyday. It would be prominent to run 3 to 5 miles everday if possible and you will slim down in no time. Just remember to change your pace from jog to run to sprint to fast walk. And as for the diet, you have to eat 4 times a day! From Morning to Mid-Morning, Lunch to Dinner. This technique is often called grazing, which is to eat small portions of some sort of complex carbohydrates (such as grains or bread/noodles/pasta), some sort of vegetable (avoid fruit due to sugar), some sort of protein( peanut butter, meat) and number one drink nothing but water. This plan should be followed everyday if manageable and remember its okay to splurge every now and then! Just remember to keep your portions small and all food should be eaten every meal time. Hope this helps!

    Scared about vegan weight loss?
    i plan to go from vegetarian to vegan and it is for a few reason NOT including weight loss. the most obvious and biggest, i hate that animals go through pain and death for things we could easily live without. another it has quite a few health benefits like less risk of diabetes. alot of vegan people still eat junk food and don't lose a big amount of Weight however i am not a big eater and i know i wont eat a large amount i will probably eat a smaller amount than i do now. will my new lifestyle choice have a big impact on my weight? ps, i am a teenager if that helps. thank you :)

    • ANSWER:
      If you are overweight you will lose a lot. if your already at a healthy weight you might shed 2 or 3 pounds. Just make sure you eat enough calories, if you don't eat a lot when your vegan it effects you a lot faster than when you where an omnivore or vegetarian.

  33. QUESTION:
    A healthy school lunch for a teenager?
    I am looking for something healthy, not a weight loss plan just nutritious and healthy.
    I am 14, 5 ft tall, and a healthy weight.
    I am looking for good ideas for lunches I can take to school.

    For breakfast I have cereal with 1% milk and take some calcium.
    Looking for healthy lunch plan...
    Then I come home and have another snack/meal, ideas?
    Then I have a dinner, always including meat.

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest either a peanut butter sandwich or a tuna sandwich on whole wheat bread. Both are high in protein and relatively low in saturated fat. You could eat either an apple, orange or banana with that, with another glass of milk to drink. For a snack, you could have some baby carrots with a little ranch dressing. At your age, you need fat in your diet in order to absorb the vitamins from your food. Yet you don't want to eat too much "bad fat," or saturated fat. Olives and avacadoes would be great for you. You might also want to try having a mid-morning snack, if your school allows you to eat in class (or perhaps between classes). It's important to keep your energy levels high in order for you to do well in school.

    What are some weight loss tips that help YOU?
    I'm 14 years old, and I used to be 157lbs, at 5' 5". Now I am 5' 6" and 145lbs. I did a simple workout of 30 minutes of cardio running on the elliptical (?) machine. I lost 17 lbs, and went down to 140, but I stopped working out for three months and gained 4-5 lbs. Then just 2 months ago I started P90X, and went down to 140 lbs again. Then my mom made me switch to Power 90, and I gained 1 lbs.

    (Now, I'm like 145lbs)

    I lost a ton of weight just running, but had a hard time committing to that, since I am a teenager, go to school, and am in the process of writing a novel in hopes to publish it. I am in no way an athlete and I hate sports, thus I do none. Do not make a comment on how a 14 year old shouldn't have to workout, but I do need to. I have Scoliosis and use the European brace which is a series of elastic bands that wrap around the body to pull on different muscles to fix the curvatures and twisting of the spinal column. My doctor wanted me to lose weight so the brace could work more efficiently. So I did.
    I felt great when I did the P90X workouts, but they were sooo long. I didn't have that kind of time. Now that it's summer, I guess I do, but I now use that time to write my novel. I was on a the diet plan that went along with P90X, but being a teenager, I always felt hungry, that the diet didn't give me enough options. Most of the time we don't have the right foods in the house that I need. I now can't go above 146 lbs, so technically I permanently lost 10 lbs. Thing is, the brace squeezes the middle of my stomach, so I get really skinny in my very middle, but I get this pouch around my belly button. I lose weight in my upper body, build muscle in my forearms and calves, but I have never lost inches off my thigh and pouch. I mostly need to lose inches, but I do need to lose weight also. When I lose another 5-10 lbs for good, I want to tone up! I poke my stomach, FEEL the abs 1/2" to 1" under my skin, but I SEE nothing! No abs, nothing! I really want to tone up and lose INCHES.

    What are some weight loss tips or guidelines that you follow that help you a LOT. Particularly if you do the P90X program, that'd be great. I think I'm supposed to eat at least 1600 calories a day to lose weight....
    PLEASE, any help would be appreciated. But, please write things that have helped YOU. Not the people on TV, or what the Internet says, unless it helped YOU.
    My father has been unemployed for 2+ yrs now. Nothing pricey.
    Do not comment if you are only going to send me to a website telling me to purchase any items, that does not help me.
    Would any of you have tips for my P90X program? I was doing well, but I had to cut each session short. I might do P90X again, but I don't know.

    Help with a weight loss program?
    I want to lose weight healthily by exercising and eating right and I was wondering if this would work?
    Sorry it's so long.

    I'm 95kg, 164cm tall, a teenager and a size 16 in Australia. I know it's bad and I want to do something about it. I have quite a large bone structure so I know I'll never be a size 8 but I just want to be healthy (around size 12 would be great 10 if I can). I want my legs not to rub and my tummy to be flatter so I want to lose fat. I'm going on a healthy diet of mostly protein and vegetables (85%). I also have an exercise plan.

    Week 1: everyday 2km - walk 1 pole, run 1
    Week 2: 5x 4 km- run 1 pole, walk 1.
    2x 2km walk
    Week 3: 4km -2km run 2 pole, walk 1. 2km run 1 pole, walk 1.
    5x 15 min deep stretching after the 4km
    Week 4: 5x 4km- run 2 poles, walk 1
    5x 15 min deep stretching
    5x strength training (15 min)
    2x 2km walk
    Week 5: same as week 4
    Week 6: same as week 4 except 20 mins strength training

    When I say pole I mean the electricity poles as intervals eg. walk 1, run 2.

    I wanted to know that if I stick to this and continue on with a similar exercise plan would I be a size 12-14 by New-Year's and swimsuit season (it's summer). And do you have any good advice or suggestions to maximise the fat loss? Thanks for your help.

    Weight Loss?
    Im a teenager and Im not over weight but it wouldnt hurt to lose a little. What is the healthiest way to lose weight? How many calories should i consume a day? I usually eat from 800 to 1000 calories a day. Here is my diet plan:
    *Breakfast: 1/2 cup no sugar cereal, 1 cup skim milk, 1 small apple
    *Lunch: 2 small apples

    *Dinner: 1 Cup rice, 1 cup vegetables, 1 serving of meat- all low fat and nothing fried, no oil, (only salt and seasoning, meat is broiled)
    *1 Cup of tea with 1 teaspoon sugar (3 times a week not every day)
    *1 small fruit before bed

    *I do excercise 1/2 and hour a day (Playstation 2 dance mat, or I jogging 3 miles, depends on day)

    Is this healthy. What can I do with my diet to lose weight faster? I dont want to do Jenny Creg or whatever. I thing those diets are fake.

  38. QUESTION:
    Exercise plan for fat teenager?
    *READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION* I'm not exagerating I really am a fat teenager. I'm not like those anorexic freaks out there who want no curves. I used to be just a bit more than "curvy" a month ago now it's getting out of hand. I'm 5'4" and 147 lb. (yaaa, you can see my problem now, lol). I will admit I have a lot of calf muscle (i do ballet) and my boobs have always been pretty big for my height (even when I was skinny) so idk how much weight that adds. What is a good target of weight loss and what is a plan I could use to exercise and eat right?

    • ANSWER:
      http://exercise.about.com/cs/weightloss/a/howtoloseweight.htm

      Basic rules for weight loss right there.
      Your a teenager so eat right, you said you don't want to be anorexic, so PLEASE do not starve yourself.
      Healthy plan will include a good balance of grains,fruits and veggies, dairy and meat, with the right amount of exercise. No junk food! If you really want to lose weight then you have to be serious about it. A good goal for you would probably losing 2 or 3 pounds per week, and then that would be 10 or 15 pounds per month, which is good.

      *Get the right amount of sleep, 8 hours per night....important to lose weight.
      *Drink lots of ICE COLD water, 8 glasses per day recommended,boosts your metabolism
      *Eat 6 small meals throughout the day.I will try to make a one day plan for you
      *Exercise. For a teen, it's called playing with your friends, riding your bike,playing sports

      Your one day plan that I recommend.

      Go to sleep at 10 or 11p.m. wake up at 7 or 8 a.m.

      8:00 a.m.- Breakfast - Oatmeal or Special K cereal with some kind of berries, I think blueberries would be the best or strawberries.

      10:00 a.m.- Mid morning snack. A good salad,if you want dressing try these recipes
      http://whatscookingamerica.net/Salad/CucumberSalad2.htm
      Ask your mom or dad to help you

      12:30-1:00 p.m.-Lunch. A healthy sandwich or wrap
      http://whatscookingamerica.net/Sandwich/VeggieHummusWrap.htm
      Again ask your mom and dad to help you make it so they can eat it too. They will be proud of you for eating healthy

      3:00 p.m.- Afternoon snack. Some low fat yogurt, crackers or anything dairy

      6:00 p.m.- A good dinner, with protein. OK so either some soup or stew or try some of this

      http://www.healthy-eating-made-easy.com/healthy-dinner-recipes.html

      Try any of those,again with your parents

      9:00 p.m.- A little snack. Small,simple, to keep your metabolism working while your sleeping. A cracker, small piece of banana or small piece of chicken.Also helps you sleep better

      As for the exercises. Exercises in the late afternoon or early evening around 4p.m.or 5.
      Do some cardio exercises if you wish.
      http://exercise.about.com/cs/exbeginners/a/begcardio.htm

      Or go for a jog with your friends or ride your bike with your friends. As long as you are outside and doing something you are getting good exercises.

      After half an hour or an hour after your dinner, do some yoga for about 10-15minutes or even half an hour if your feeling up to it.

      http://anmolmehta.com/blog/2010/01/21/basic-yoga-poses-for-weight-loss/

      http://www.thatsfit.com/2009/12/14/weight-loss/

      Don't be all fit mode.Don't forget to have fun with your friends and just maybe treat yourself to a healthy snack or a movie once in a week to keep yourself motivated if you lose the 2 pounds each week.
      And my last tip for you is
      http://fitday.com/
      keep track of your weight loss with that journal,and write down your goals and daily meal plan, the amount of weight your losing....

      Oh and don't listen to Dave,it's not true

      GOOD LUCK!

  39. QUESTION:
    WEIGHT LOSS QUESTIONS?
    Ok, so i am surrently 5'3" and weight 104 pounds. Is that an ok weight? I am pretty content with my weight now but have many self consious issues!! I think im fat often & have even tryed to make myself throw up 4 times (i didnt sucseed though). I used to run for 15 min., do some kickboxing, do 20 curls, and some arm weight lifting. I did that everyday. But now me and my friend are doing weight watchers together which is easy for me because i dont eat much every day anyway (about 1,000-1,200 calories). Together we are also going to run around 30 minutes, do sprints, 20 curls, and pushups. Is this excersise plan good? In the last 3 weeks I have lost around 3 pounds (my heaviest weight was 112) , so im currently 104 pounds but want to lose 5 more. I also gave up sweets for lent-which has helped! FYI: I am a teenager. Just so you are aware. Thanks for your time & help!

    • ANSWER:
      You're kinda underweight. Eat a little more, and keep up the exercise! You want a healthy body weight!

  40. QUESTION:
    Weight Loss - Teenage Help Please :) ?
    Hey! Im 14.. And im 5ft 2" and i weigh 129 (roughly because everytime i go on the scale its different :P ) i really wanna be around 103 pounds by the end of summer? do ye think its possible.. id nearly settle for 110.. and i no being a teenager i shouldnt worry about weight.. but i have fat on my stomach and thighs.. so i need to shift the weight and work on exercises then for those areas..

    now im not good at sticking to plans, but i am now! and i really need help on what to eat..: eg. not fancy things.. like the basic things everyone buys eg: apples, bananas, fruit,, veg (usually only carrots in my house unless for dinner) ah, bread.. but not like all the things like low fat milk, or whole wheat bread.. i cant get all of those because we need whole fat stuff for my brother whos severly underweight and is disabled so its hard..

    and we got zumba fitness for the wii and its really ... it really works! :L i sweat alot from it.. :L and im not so active too.. (also.. i get pains in my breast bone and ribs everytime i dance to anything at all .. not run.. dance! ? and clue there?)
    thanks :')

    ps. i cant really get my mom to notice because she'll freak if i worry about weight, although shes working on getting us fit for the summer :)

    xxx
    Thanks :) thats the thing, i no im growing and my body needs the food.. but im giving it all junk food! so i need to cut out junk food and cut off the fat :) and .. tips for not eating junk food.. im so craving a magnum thats in my freezer right now.. :( :o

    • ANSWER:
      Don't worry about whole fat vs low fat. Low fat diets are freakin' retarded. Whole milk is fine, just make sure to keep your calorie intake at 1500-2000 a day. Instead of worrying about low fat, worry about your carb intake. You should be keeping it around 100-150 g a day. This should be easy for you. Just avoid breads, starches, and pastas. Eat high protein (instead of that slice of bread with dinner, have an extra serving of meat), high fat, low carb, low sugar.

      And exercise! You can't expect to loss weight reasonably and in a healthy manner if you don't exercise. Do cardio and weightlifting, but on different days. Try and get at least 60 minutes of moderate to high intensity exercise at least 4 or 5 times a day. If you can't do that yet, work up to it. But make sure to push your body.

      That pain in your chest and ribs is probably from your lungs working overtime to supply your body with oxygen, when you're not used to it. That should go away as your fitness increases.

  41. QUESTION:
    Weight loss, help me?
    I am a female and I weigh 170. I know this is absolutely un healthy. Honestly I have no idea why I weigh this much, I don't even eat alot. I haven't been working out alot because I've been injured for a while.

    Anyways I want to get to at least 120. They gradually maybe drop to 110 or 115.

    How long will this take, hopefully I start in the begining of September, when I will possibly be healthy. So starting from September how long will it take me so loose 50 lbs. I am only a teenager. I will be getting a gym membership and I plan on going to the gym 5 times a week. And on the weekends I would go swimming, jogging, walking, running for 30 minutes. I already know what to eat, but any good healthy foods? Thank you so much!

    • ANSWER:
      If you stick to this plan, you could be 130 pounds in a month and a half!

  42. QUESTION:
    Short period of time weight loss?
    I am 235 and im a teenager. Obviously, I need help. I have been taking 1-3 30 hour walks each day and eating smaller portions of healthy food. Completely cut out any junk foods. I specifically want to flatten my stomach and make my butt look better. Really want to get rid of my big thighs and get rid of my arm flab. So basically, I need a really rounded diet and fitness plan. I am trying to lose a few pounds for a convention and for my entire life right now. Im ready to make a life change after flip flopping dieting. The con is in 5-6 weeks and I am going to be wearing a lower thigh skirt with heels (That will make me look a bit slender since they are 5' tall)

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with Robin W. You have been walking. That is a great start. Add some push ups to your routine and some crunches too. Those you can do with any extra equipment. Exercise is the only real way to loss weight without putting right back on. 5 weeks is not a long time for weight loss. There are several ways out there to lose weight fast by dieting but ARE going to be putting the weight back on. Yoga is a great way to tone and stay in shape. It had may other benefits too.
      Set a short term goal and a long term goal.
      Short term is 2 lbs per week. Daily walks. Daily weight lifting.
      Long term is what weight do you want to be. What size dress do you want to fit in to?
      Long term goal dates are subject to change based on life. Don't get discouraged.

  43. QUESTION:
    Exactly how much calories do i need per day?
    I'm about 5 feet 5
    Currently 16 years old, (Turning 17 this year)

    Also, any one have a weight loss plan that's doesn't require preparing specific meals. I don't mind cutting out on the foods such as: coffee, coke, sweets and junk food etc. But I don't want to have to prepare specific foods with all the ingredients, because 1) my mom wont be able to help me, she doesn't know any western recipes (we are chinese) and 2) i don't have time. I really really want to lose the weight(or at least firm up), because I'm tired of people telling me I'm fat and even though my BMI shows that I'm at a normal weight for my height, it really kills my self-esteem. I travel back to China every year and when I see my brother, cousins and other teenagers, I feel like a freak and I wanna disappear, because compared to them, I look awfully FAT! and worst of it is, people tell me I'm fat, they even crack jokes about it. And it really isn't pleasant. =[ So if anyone has a plan that could help me, please let me know asap. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Well, you might have an answer. Generally, the Chinese diet is pretty healthy. The typical Western one is not. Maybe just eat like you mom does!

      The amount varies by height, weight, and the speed of your metabolism. Something like 2000-2500 calories is about right for you (I think.). If your BMI is between 20-25, you are in the healthy range, although young people are usually a little under what adults would be (a slightly lower range).

      Loosing weight, and firming up are completely different things. You firm up with exercise, which actually increases your weight, as muscle weighs more than fat. Also, remember that people nowadays have a very distorted idea of what looks good. So many seem to think the stick figure/little boy look is sexy. Blah! Women should have curves. And, being to thin is also not healthy.

      So, eat your traditional foods, and exercise, and you will be just fine.

    • ANSWER:
      EDIT: Wow. You're being very unresonable. If you're going to be that way then I'm not going to help you. If you aren't going to put some effort into this (like you don't want to save up for an excersize machine or you are too lazy to keep a calorie journal or even ask your mom to make healthier food) then it's not going to be easy. >:( Other people on here and myself have taken the time to help you, but you are just shooting down all of our ideas. My answer is REALLY long, it's full of useful tips, there must be SOMETHING relevant to you in it!
      If you're not going to put effort into what you eat, than you're not going to get anywhere. Diet is as much important as excersize, and if you won't even try to improve than what's the point?

      Ok this is a really really long answer, but please give it a chance because it really works, it worked for me and lots of people I know. Don't get mad that this is so long hahaz its mostly just lots and lots of tips!
      Hey there I have the same problem. . But it's acutally pretty easy to lose it and easier than you think. You just have to be patient and don't give up because it really does work. Okay well this might be a little hard if you don't have an ollyptical trainer machine (google it if you don't know what it is. you prob will once you see a picture of it). If you have some other excersize machine this will work too but if you don't have any excersize machine than ask your parents to buy you one! It is really important. If they won't buy one then that's ok but you will have to run which I hate! Well ok do you get a subscription to Seventeen? they have great workouts in there that you can follow. Here's what I do. I try to go on my ollyptical for 30 minutes each day (I do it at night but that might not be a good idea if excersize makes you not be able to sleep. For me it makes me tired but it makes some people less tired!) Also you can listen to music while you work out- it makes fun! and the best part is that with ollpytical trainers you never actually run out of breath but you work up a sweat. Anyway, after you do that, do the workout in your Seventeen. If you don't get Seventeen, then you can find great workouts at their website or somewhere online. And they are strength workouts not cardio so its more like building your abs (which I admit is like torture- side planks, v-sits, and more) but definetly works. There is also leg, butt, and arm excersizes you can do. You don't have to do the strength workouts but they help to build muscle and increase stamina so it is better for you in the long run, so if you want to do them at all the best time is after you have worked out so that you are already sweaty and your heart is already pumped up and you are more flexible. Don't forget to stretch when you are done excersizing, whether or not you do the strength training. Stretching is impt. because it helps you cool down and it helps prevent injury or muscle strain so that your muscles won't be sore the next day. Honestly you don't have to work out every night, it's best to do this 3-4 times a week instead of every night. But if you really want to see results fast, then do it as much as you can. Also for what do you eat, my biggest setback on eating is that whenever I eat cereal I always have 2 bowls which is not that healthy cuz cereal is starch. Try to not have a lot of starch-bread, pasta, potatoes. Ik it sucks but starch turns right in to sugar or fat so it's not really healthy. So replace some starch with protein like nuts, fish, meat, chicken, beans, and more. If you are vegetarian there are lots of protein choices that is not meat. Eat a lot of fruits and veggies they are delicious and really healthy. Breakfast in a hurry make sure to eat cereal and fruit. If you don't have time bring a banana and a granola bar. For lunch if you are at school you can pack celery and peanut butter. It is actually really good! Or carrots and ranch.Something healthy! Pack your lunch with 2 healthy things and allow yourself to pack one thing not so healthy like potato chips or cookies. For dinner try to eat less rice, bread, potatoes, and pasta because again they are starch. If you liek to eat Chinese or Indian food (both yummmm) then you probably will have a lot of rice, so try to eat less starch after that. ALso like if you are dying for a bagle then by all means have one but since a bagel is like 500 calories, and all of that starch, you can't have a lot of starch after that. I htink you know what I mean. Also it helps to keep a calorie journal of everything you eat and how many calories you eat. But you probably alraedy do that and you are doing a lot of things right. Im rly rly sorry this is so long lol! Incentivese: if you are at the point where you don't wear a bikini but would like to, then go to the store where they have really really cute bikinis and if you find a cheap one, by it! Hang it up in your room where you can see it, and when you are working out think about how great you'd look in it and how you've come so far and how you are almost there. if you are just looking to tone up, then go to the mall and find something really cute to use as an incentive, or ask your mom to pitch in and buy you a really cute pair of shoes or something that you can set as your goal- for instance if you want to lose 15 lbs then buy the shoes but hide them, only once you have reached your goal of -15 lbs can you have the shoes.

    How do I lose around 35 pounds over summer break?
    I'm 5' 8" and 155 pounds, and I'd like to feel comfortable with my body for once when I enter high school. Is there a healthy, natural way to get anywhere between 115 and 125 pounds over summer break? I'm almost 14, so I can't afford a diet plan or a gym, and my parents think I'm a depressed, anorexic teenager if I even mention weight loss. So, I can't bring up Jenny Craig or anything else.

    • ANSWER:
      Eating right is 80-90% of the solution. Eat 5-6 small balanced meals a day. Learn about "portion sizes," a young girl like you shouldn't worry about counting calories. For your workout...all you need is your own body weight. A good beginner workout is Turbulence Training. Look up "body weight workouts" and "4 week turbulence training" and that will get you on the cheap, fast track.

  49. QUESTION:
    Need to lose ten stone in 6 months. Any suggestions?
    I got this heavy from when I was a teenager, I lost a leg from the knee down, in an accident and suffered severe depression from the impact it had on my life, I comfort ate and finally came to terms with the loss of my limb but I have never been able to shift the weight since. I weigh 305 lbs (just over 22 stone) I'm 23 years old, female and I've tried everything; weightwatchers, cambridge diet, lighterlife, slimming world, atkins, etc etc but just can't stick to them. It's difficult when socializing to be on something too restrictive, and other diets just aren't fast enough. As I have so much weight to lose I find that slow diets just do not keep my morale up and I lose hope. I need something much more quick.

    If anyone knows of any fast diets / weight loss plans / suppliments that will give me quicker results I would be so appreciative! After losing a limb it has taken me a long time to rebuild my life and now I feel the only thing holding me back from doing the things I want to do in my life is just my weight. It restricts me in so many ways and makes me deeply unhappy. Please don't give any abuse and please don't suggest "sensible eating" or "losing 1-2 lbs a week". I complete understand that is a more healthy way but I wouldn't be posting this if I could stick to a simple healthy normal diet. Losing 2 lbs a week will take me over 80 weeks. That's nearly 2 years. I don't have the will power or the hope to be on a diet that long. I want to start my life now.

    Please only post a reply if you have any personal experience with losing this amount of weight (ten stone in six months) or if you know someone or have heard of a diet which can achieve this. Thank you so much for reading this and for any answers or suggestions you have.

    • ANSWER:
      ** Eat six mini meals a day. Exercise and before every meal, drink two tall glasses of water, (about 16 oz.) this will fill you up and you will automatically eat less. This really works, so be patient. Good Luck to you

      -eating good carbs; this is like oat meal, beans, dark rye bread. These carbs take longer to burn; thus making you feel full longer than if you were to eat white bread or sugary cereal or cookies/crackers
      -eat alot of veggies and/or fruits whenever you are hungry and walking through the kitchen walk towards the fruit bowl and grab an apple, tangerine, banana, etc. I found for myself when watching my wait that I was too lazy to go to the trouble to make some snazzy healthy snack, but that's the good things about fruits! You can grab and go.

      -don't starve yourself; this leads to binge eating

      -watch your calories; find an online calorie counter and find an average amount of calories you burn a day based on you BMI

      -make a plan; a planned eating schedule may make you more likely to stick to it

      -cut out sugary treats like cookies, ice cream, chips, juice(the non diets) etc; ask your parents to stop buying these things for at least a month so you can lose your taste for them

      -switch to skim milk or almond milk(its good when refrigerated)

      -Don't eat pass 7pm (this will help prevent you from putting on weight, but wont necessarily make you lose wait)

      -chew gum

      -drink water; sometimes when you feel hungry it's actually because you are thirsty

      -when watching tv don't snack or if you are snacking only bring a small bowl with you of something like
      pretzels

      -DO NOT DRINK SODA POP; this not only clears up your skin, but will result in less bloating, and drinkable calories

      -don't cheat!!!!

      -work out at least 30 minutes a day (walking is considered a work out), and try to have some days be more hard core (like your dancing)

      -lift weights; do this like two or three times a week it could be the 5 or 10 lb ddumbbells this is a good
      way to burn calories

      -if you choose to exercise by running/jogging do things in intervals like sprint a minute then jog a minute (burns fat really well)

      -stretch every morning and before going to bed for a few minutes

      *I know it's alot of stuff, but it's actually really easy to stick with once you get in the habit(the giving up sweets is the most difficult part in my opinion). I haven't had soda pop or 2% percent milk in 4 years, and I weigh less than I did as a seventh grader now!
      seventh grade about 125 lbs....now I weigh 116 at 5'6" and I'm 16:)
      You have to work out to keep your muscles toned or you'll end up looking frail and possibly develop cellulite. I think the average calories burned a day by a teenage girl is around 1500, and there are 3500 calories in one pound. So do the math after you figure out your personal average of daily burnt calories, and if you stick with it you could be losing at least a pound a week.


A Weight Loss Plan For Kids

aBeauty lies in the Eyes of the Beholder a- This fact is indeed true. We all want to live up to others perception about us. The society lays a lot of emphasis on being svelte and slim. Every one knowingly or unknowingly, takes part in this rat race of weight loss. Whether you want to lose weight to sport a slim figure or to be physically fit, the bottom line is that you desire to lose weight.

Everyone knows that there are basically two ways of weight loss. Firstly, by following strict weight diet plan and secondly, by exercising. Most of us would opt for the former one. However following a weight loss diet regime is not a matter of joke. A lot of determination, grit and will power are involved while dieting. Imagine, while you deprive yourself from tasty food, your best friend gorges on your favorite pasta and French fries. Extremely Painful, Right?

This is the main reason while most lose determination and give up the thought of dieting. Dieting can be a sore thumb if not followed properly. Most people complain that in spite of the fact that they follow an extremely rigorous and strict diet regime, still they see no visible difference in their appearance. What they need to realize is that not each and every diet regime works on our body. One needs to understand that each and every body type is different from the other. The trick is to decide upon a suitable diet plan that will have the desired results on your body.

    What is a good weight loss plan for someone that doesn't eat a lot of meat?
    What diet plan works best for someone who doesn't eat a lot of meat?
    I am trying to lose weight, but have very poor eating habits. I don't have the money for a nutritionist, and also have to think of my kids and what they want to eat. I don't like meat, and don't eat it very often, which leads me to believe that I may be missing some important components(protein, and others) from my diet. I do take a multi-vitamin. I would like to start this ASAP. Does anyone know any websites that would give me diet/meal plans that are both kid friendly and healthy. It seems that all we eat are chicken nuggets, fish sticks,a nd pizza!

    • ANSWER:
      I am like you , in that I don't like any red meat although I will eat turkey and chicken. My diet is eating lots of salads- which are very healthy and fortifying if you use the right ingredients. My favorite is grilled chicken strips, mushrooms, tomatoes and red onions over a bed of mixed greens. All of the necessary ingredients are there. To find good kid friendly web site to help you, I suggest you simply go to Google search with you information and I'm sure you'll find something.

    Good weight loss plan for 13 year old?
    I am about 33 pounds overweight and want to lose it over the summer. What is a good plan for me as a kid?

    • ANSWER:
      Its good your are motivated to lose weight and you can chip away at it if you hang in there. There are a view simple things that can move you in the right direction.

      Replace soda in your diet with water
      Instead of snacking on your favorite snack eat an apple, other fruits you like or vegetables like finger carrots. Summer is a good time to play or exercise outdoors so take advantage of that and get more exercise. When eating use a smaller plate than you would normally use, and if you are still hungary after eating, top it up with water.

      Good luck

  6. QUESTION:
    Lose weight by running plan? Have any schedules/plans that a college kid could follow for quick weight loss?
    Meal and exercise plan.

    • ANSWER:
      Go here (calorie calc): http://magnetic-diet.com/calc/daily_calorie_calculator.htm
      Figure out how many calories you need to stay where you are right now, then cut 500-1000 from that. That's all you can have every day. Space this out between 4-6 meals, eating every 3-4 hours. You can cheat one meal a week, but only one meal and be sure to really cheat when you do or you'll try to make up for it with other meals. Make a calorie sheet and write down everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, you eat or drink that has calories. Basically, everything except water. Make sure it adds up to whatever number you got earlier. Be sure to recalculate every few weeks as you lose weight.

      Start running, swimming, biking, etc. Whatever you pick, do it 3-6x a week. Work up to 30+ minutes straight and don't wuss out on the intensity.

      If you can go to a gym, start a good weight training program as well. Every kilo of muscle you gain will burn another ~75 Calories a day, which really adds up. I'm not typing out an entire weight training program, as I can make a good 0-500 off that.

  7. QUESTION:
    do i have a good weight loss plan?
    Ok. heres my stats... I am 21... 5'9 , and i 190lbs... Had my second baby boy last month, I am very serious about getting back down to 150lbs, but I am unable to go out for long walks and finally trying to eat healthier, so heres what i have been doing the last few days...
    I tryed pilaties but i find it uncomfortable cuz it seems like my tail bone sticks out far and it hurts to do the rolls and stuff so i decided to to 10 crunchies and 10 squats every morning afternoon and evening. along with my household chores and chasing the kids lol... I have a bad eating habit as in not eating at all, but i think ive been doing good the last few days, 2 hard boiled eggs for breakfast, small bowl of whatever i feed my kid ei. Kraft dinner, Alphagettie, Or a peanut butter a jelly sandwhich on whole wheat bread. then for dinner i would have fruit or veggies and if i get hungry in between the meals instead of scarfing my face ill chug some water.
    I try not to eat past 8 to 9 pm because i dont want the food to sit and turn into fat but if i need to ill have a grapefruit or a couple of slices of cucumber... but is it ok for me to have one junk food item a day? is it ok for me to have a few coffees a day??? being a stay at home mom is very tiring and its hard to ignore all the sweets when my 2 yr old trys to share with me and flaunts it in my face!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Congratulations mom. It sounds like your'e very active, so thats good. The very best advice that I can give you about nutrition is to eat 5 times a day. Yes...5 times. Each meal should be small, like a piece of chicken or fish with a scoop of brown rice or pasta and two scoops of vegetables and a glass of water. Simple right? Eating 5 small meals a day speeds up your metabolism, which is the real key to weight loss. Try to time them for every 3 hours. I swear by the results! Keep exercising at least 3 times a week and eat 5 times a day, and in a month you'll be amazed.

  8. 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!

  11. QUESTION:
    Weight loss plan for busy mom?
    Ok I know I'm not the only busy mom out there..but I just don't know how I am supposed to do it! I'm not fat by any means at all, but I do believe what I have can be skimmed down a little and then toned. However, I work full time, have two kids to raise on my own, and have very little time left over if any and I love food. I also dont have the discipline it takes to workout regularly. Is there any good plan I can stick with realistically ..and be toned down in 2 months for a friends wedding on the beach?

    • ANSWER:
      The simple answer to your question is no. You can't get toned without working out regularly. Simply losing weight will make you appear thinner with a loss of mass, but you generally will not lose the flabbiness at the back of your arms, around your buttocks, hips, thighs and tummy without a regular exercise program.

      In the next two months, try and find an activity you like to do for 20-30 min consistently, and stick to it. You'll be suprised how much tone you can get by even the most modest exercise or sport.

      If you are interested in achieving your goal of toning without exercise, I'll send good thoughts your way and hope you have superior genetics to succeed only with diet.

  12. QUESTION:
    What would be the best weight-loss plan for me?
    I have been looking to various weight-loss plans, like Jenny Craig and NutriSystem, but I'm wondering what out there would be the best for me - from the mouths of people who have experience with these various programs.

    Some details about me:
    I'm 23 years old, and 5'9-5'10, and currently weigh 240 pounds.
    Almost all of my fat is centered in my belly area, with some on the thighs and upper body.
    I do NOT know how to cook, select foods from grocery stores on my own, and I was raised on a diet that consisted entirely of meat, potatoes, and corn. I'm not kidding, folks, I've never eaten a fruit (that didn't immediately make me horribly gag)... I'm trying to learn to cook on my own, but honestly, this is an uphill battle.

    I'm looking to lose some major weight and get down to an ideal range, preferably 140-160, so I know I'm in this for a very long haul.

    I also have a monthly budget under 300 dollars.

    I can take care of exercise regimens on my own (but it would be cool if a program had tools included for this).

    Are there any systems out there that can work for my needs?
    Extra note:

    I do NOT have a regular schedule (thanks to night shift hours); plans that assume/require traditional "breakfast"-"lunch"-"dinner" activites won't work well, because I go to sleep directly after "breakfast." :)

    • ANSWER:
      heya, well done for making this choice!

      you are doing well but a few tips are
      cut out the diet coke (or restrict to a glass a day or week-it depends how much you drink but try to phase it out) it bloats you, rots your teeth and is generally not nice
      walking is good, try to walk 5 minutes more every week
      also excercise doesnt have to be a chor! take the kids to the park (if they are young, if they are teens this may not be a good idea :) )
      spend a sunday walking with the family, a bike ride or start a yoga class with a few friends ( yoga is great for stretching a strengthening the muscles (making them toned without making them bulky!)
      just try to get a bit more active
      cut out sweet foods like you are doing but dont restrict yourself (the occasional piece of cake is ok but 2 is not!)
      dont cut out carbs it is sudden and is not healthy. If you can try to only eat complex carbs (wholemeal bread, brown rice, wholemeal pasta, potatoes)
      cut down on salt which can give you high blood pressure
      also food swaps such as
      butter-margarine
      are good, always have a healthy option

      (sorry i am rambling by the way)
      a typical daily plan (try to limit yourself to about 2000 cals, as you lose weight you need to cut down)

      wake up
      15 minute walk (go to get a morning paper or something, i understand if it is rainy this is not ideal but try to do some sort of excercise to do before breakfast, a excercise video is ideal as you dont have to leave the house

      BREAKFAST- 2 poached eggs
      mushrooms and tomatoes
      2 slices of wholemeal bread (low fat spread)
      fruit smoothie- strawberries, banana, 100% orange juice and low fat yogurt is my favourite but if you dont like smoothies a piece of fruit is fine

      EXCERCISE- even if it is just walking up and down the stairs at work in your lunch break for 10 mins it really does help!

      LUNCH- homemade soup (or you can buy soups which are just vegetables, make sure not to buy processed ones which contain a lot of salt and fat! and a wholemeal roll with salad a piece of fruit (also take water to work and keep drinking it, staying hydrated keeps hunger pangs away!

      EXCERCISE- 30 mins excercise it can be walking, jogging, cycling whatever

      SNACK-2 biscuits (try to pick a healthier low cal option)
      cup of herbal tea
      2 slices of wholemeal toast
      fruit salad
      (you may not want this snack if you have dinner quite early, i have dinner at about 8 o clock which is not ideal as eating earlier is better but because of this i have a snack at about 4)

      TEA- homemade wholemeal pasta with homemade sauce (chopped tomatoes,chicken and lots of veggies!)
      or
      salmon with potatoes and brocolli

      EXCERCISE- 15 minute walk or yoga or something. or if no time sit ups and press ups when the commersial break on tv is on is great, even jump rope or jumping jacks are great!)

      you may have noticed i havent included much meat but that is because i am a vegetarian but remember this is an example day fish is great and low cal, add tuna to a lettuce sandwich or jacket potato for extra protein. chicken is great grilled with stir fry. stay clear of processed and fatty meat!

      i know it the excercise may seem time consuming with a job and kids to manage along with everything else but try to allow yourself some time, a little bit goes a long way

      sorry i have written so much
      good luck, i wish you all the success, remembering if one day you slip up its fine-we all do. just carry on with the healthy eating the next day
      :D xxx

    • ANSWER:
      Congratulations on having another baby. I gained 70 lbs with my baby and was only 115 lbs before pregnancy. I lost it all in 7 months by simply changing my eating habits and doing a LOT of cardio. Since we just moved, I did not have anyone to watch my child while I went to the gym so I pumped and went to the gym at 5:00am four times a week before my husband went to work. If you're finished breastfeeding you can go to the GNC and get a detox to clean out your body. I also bought some Biggest Loser DVD's and lost 20 lbs from them in the first 8 weeks. Also, I think lifting weights is really important because it increases your metabolism and allows you to burn calories quicker. Good luck and don't give up if you have one bad day. Also, keep a journal of everything :)

  17. QUESTION:
    Will this weight loss plan work?
    So I know starving yourself is a VERY bad idea but I've tried everything and NOTHINGS working! I'm 13 I weigh 212 pounds and I'm 5'2. I was in public school till this Year and I hated it because, obviously, the kids were cruel (my father, step father, and grandmother died when I was 6 all in the same year and me and my family got over it by not talking to anyone and not going outdoors and sitting there stuffing our faces). So for this past school year I've been in homeschooling and now I want to go back because my family makes fun of me WAY (and yes it did need to be in caps) more than the kids at school did and they're slowly making me hate myself to the point where I want to starve myself. For me that's a big step because I've always thought badly of the people who tried it but anyway. I don't want to gain it all bad immediately so I was wondering if I were to go back to eating and didn't eat the same unhealthy foods and only ate the amount of calories im supposed to have and not go over will that make me stay the same or would I still blow up like a balloon? My family won't buy any healthy food so I would have to pay for it myself because they aren't at all supportive. And everyday I eat 1 fruit with something else healthy along with these multivitamin pills and water and that's all I eat. Please help. Thank you!
    I can't go to the store on my own because they're not really within walking distance especially for a 13 year old girl going alone and I have talked to my entire family about losing weight and asked that they buy more healthy stuff but they get offended and refuse to listen. Thank you for all the suggestions and please keep them coming.

    • ANSWER:
      You should have a conversation with your mother (or custodial guardian) about your desire to lose weight. It will be very painful, but let them know you want to do this. If they do not take this seriously and you truly are on your own in your home, you should join a weight loss community like 3fatchicks for support.

      You should eat 1 lean source of protein, 1 fibrous carbohydrate (broccoli, cabbage, kale, spinach) and 1 starchy carbohydrate ( sweet potatoes, potatoes, carrots, cauliflower) with every meal.

      If this isn't available to you or your guardian won't provide it then I think we need to know what you DO have in your home that can be used as healthy fuel for your body.

      If your family is heavy into fried chicken, peel the skin and fat away from the chicken and only eat the meat.

      You can do body weight exercises in your room. Zuzana of http://www.bodyrock.tv/ is an exceptional resource of body weight exercises.

      You CAN lose weight if you believe it is possible. If you do not believe it, you will not achieve it.

      If you do not believe, you won't give it your all. So keep your mind focused on the goals and opportunities and don't focus on what you don't have and what you can't do. Focus on what you CAN do to help yourself.

  18. QUESTION:
    how to lose weight for kids?
    Im looking for a way to help my little cousin lose some weight , she is 11 and weighs 120 pounds and everyone calls her names any diet plans or weight loss plans or websites ? Thank you , God bless

    • ANSWER:
      Use the general child calorie requirements recommendation for your kids. For kids that are toddlers, the daily calorie intake should be about 1300. Kids that are four to six years of age require an additional 500 calories a day, which comes out to 1800. Follow 2000 calories for your kid's daily limit if they are between seven and 10 years old.

      When kids hit the age of 11, the daily calorie intake changes for the sexes of your children. Young men who are 11 to 14 require roughly 2500 daily calories. When a young man turns 15, he will require an additional 500 daily calories for the rest of his teenage years. Young women from 11 until they turn to adult age require 2200 calories daily. Consider talking to your children's pediatrician about lowering the recommended calorie intake by 200 or what he or she feels necessary. Your pediatrician may also be able to help you work out a proper diet or make other recommendations.

    • ANSWER:
      Eliminate all junk food, fast food, fried food, candy, soda, chips, etc.

      When you eat - eat whole foods in portions that will fit in your hand and exercise at least 1 hour a day, 5 days a week. Jump rope, walk fast, jog, put on some music and dance for 1 hour non-stop.

      If you want to lose weight you have to change, stop doing what you did to gain the weight. Doing this you should lose 20 pounds in about 2 months or by October.

  21. QUESTION:
    Weight loss meal plan.. thoughts?
    I am looking to drop a few lbs. I am currently about 5'10 and 1bout 194lbs..

    I would like to get down to about 180lbs. I have two young kids, so I do not have a whole lot of free time to work out, so I know for me personally it is important to eat healthy. Here is what im thinking, please let me know based on your experiences if you think this will work.

    Breakfast 8:30am
    slim fast shake

    Snack 10:00am
    some carrots

    Lunch 12:00pm
    Either a grilled chicken breast with a Salad
    or
    6" ham sub from subway on whole wheat bread

    Snack 3:00pm
    handful of almonds

    Dinner 6:00pm
    thinking od doing some sort of fruit smoothie with Milk, banana, yogurt, strawberries, and some protein.

    And then whatever cardio I can manage to fit in...

    Thoughts?

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest trying to have something with protein to go with those carrots like string cheese or hummus. The lunch is good but just make sure that the dressing is low fat and that you skip the mayo on the sandwich and maybe just have mustard. If you have two small children then why not take them to the park and chase them around for 30 minutes. Or chase them in the backyard. Kids and pets are a great excuse to exercise because both are filled with lots of energy as long as you play with them.

    Weight loss programs for kids?
    im 12 y/o. i weigh between 117-125. im 4'11. i want to start losing weight. any exercise shows that u dont have to buy anything 4? deit plans? exerice scheldules? i dont lik talking about my weight prob. so a diet and exercise program i can do with out having to tell other people about?

    • ANSWER:
      i wouldn't start a "program" if i were you. I'd simply start making better choices.
      Its okay to tell your parents that you are interested in "eating healthier" or even just add fruits and veggies to the grocery list (if they aren't already in the house) One of the biggest things is to eat lots of veggies and fruits and also drink lots of water and non-sweetened iced tea, skip the pop and juices. & of course skip the sweets, like desserts and candy.
      What kind of physical exercise do you do daily? You do not need to go the gym to burn calories and lose fat. Go for bike rides or walks, & when watching tv, be on your feet, picking up the living room, etc. Good luck to you!

  23. QUESTION:
    Can someone give me Weight loss advice?
    I have tried many weight loss plans before but the two conclusions that I have came to is.

    1) you either have to starve your self or work out 16hrs a day to lose weight.

    2) losing weight is damn near impossible.

    I need to lose weight not just to look good naked lol but to feel good. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. I was raised on a TRUE BLUE southern diet. Fried EVERYTHING! I bet when I was a kid my cal intake was well over 3000 a day. Anyway since I have moved out on my own and plan and prepair my own meals. ( i have been on my own for 8yrs now) I rarely have grease in the house to even be used. I bake fries and not fry them. I donot eat more than one fast food meal a week and I use olive oil to sautaee when I plan on using oil. I ALWAYS have fresh veggies ( carrots and celery) around the house for snacking and yogurt too. I always keep apples and grapes in the house as well. However since I do have a husband I also keep the Not so good for you snacks around too. But I have dramatically changed the way I eat from all greasy and fried foods as a child and teenager to what I consider a healthier version but since I have been on my own I have gained 60lbs. and 30 of those 60 have been since my last daughter was born 14months ago. I weight 242 when I gave birth to her and I weighted 225 before getting pregnant and now I weight 275 I am so dam aggravateded because I do watch what I eat and I get at least two hrs of exerciseze a day when I am chasing my daughter around out side. I do not know what to do and as far as my DR goes I hate having a Fat doctor because she is not as willing to "help" she tested my Metabolismsm and all that good stuff and everything was normal but that was as far as she went. So anyone that can help with any advice please give it. I do tea but to one gallon of tea there is one cup of sugar so its not very sweet.

  24. QUESTION:
    Shy about weight loss success, help?
    This is weird, but every time I lose a chunk of kilos (really like 3 kilos) and my friend notices that I lost weight, I feel self-conscious. I only have about 12 pounds (6 kilos) to lose, so it's no big deal, but I do look thinner. The attention, though, makes me so nervous, it actually interferes with my weight loss plan--like I don't want to lose any more weight not to attract any more attention? Go figure! what's wrong with me? By the way, I'm the same with dressing up, if I dress up too nicely, and if I attract attention, I cannot keep it up for long, I go back to dressing more plainly. I was talking to my younger sister about this, and we came up with the idea of having me dress up for a long time (I should make myself do that) until I get used to getting compliments, and then sort of forget about being nervous if I attract attention (so be it). Advice please, this is a real problem, I'm not kidding.
    Thanks for all the answers. Jasmine, you said the magic phrase "get out of our shells". My shell is thin, I don't have a lot of weight to lose, but STILL I like to be in that shell for no logical reason. I think that will remain an awkward choice that I'm forcing on myself as a sort of ill self esteem, or even vague punishment. Must work through these feelings. Thanks for sharing :)

    • ANSWER:
      Omg. Okay I can't really help your problem, but I just wanted to say this happens to me too. It's like I want to be super hot and skinny, but it makes me nervous to think everyone will notice that I look different. It makes me kinda worried people will think I try really hard. Ive been going to the gym for like 5 months but I still struggle with food. I would eat and then wouldnt be able to stop, it would be worse when I wasnt on a diet, I havent lost any weight in 5 whole months!
      Writing this it kinda make me think like, people probably arent even going to judge in a bad way. They'll just be like 'Wow, she looks hot now' and it will be good attention. Maybe it will help us get out of our shell?
      I think you'll get used to recieving compliments, you will probably have higher self esteem from losing weight, dressing nicer, and people complimenting you, maybe you'll feel good about compliments because you really feel you deserve them.

  25. QUESTION:
    Weight loss question; why do some lose quicker and more than others?
    My wife and I have been following a points weight loss program like Weight Watchers but not their actual system. It's slightly different because we are following the "Wendie" plan. Basically we stay within the points range set down for our weight but vary it from day to day. Some days are very low, at the bottom of the range. Others are high, at the upper range. One day a week is very high, about 10 points over the high point range. Overall we stay about 10 points under the total points alotted for a single week. We have been on the plan since June 18th and other than an additional point here or there we have both been true to the points plan. The problem is that I have lost 19-1/2 pounds and she lost only 4. We both work out but in different ways. She does much more cadio i.e. biking, riding a Gazelle machine, and walking/ running with the kids. I do very little cadio, 60 to 90 minutes a week, work out with weights and sit in a steam room.
    Why am I having so much more success?

    • ANSWER:
      Metobolism buddy.
      I'm a bodybuilder & see it in gym's all the time. A couple go in & the guy does his workout and is on the cardio equip while the girl is stll doing some light weights. Then the guy usually gets his shower & talks while the girl spends at lease 20 more min's than him on cardio. So it's no ones fault really. Guys tend to lose quicker as our metobolism is quicker & higher. We do work and workout at a higher intensity level than women.

    • ANSWER:
      Keep fruit around, and treat lunch like a snack to get you by, rather than a meal to fill you up. Also, find something to eat within walking distance (a mile or two). That way you're getting a little excercise too, without all the crazy self-discipline that gym people seem to exhibit.

    Weight Loss: My info.... Help me with a diet plan?
    Don't read on if you're just going to insult me because of my weight / height, there's nothing you can say that I haven't already heard and I KNOW I'm fat.

    Height: 5'6
    Weight: 13/14 Stone
    Age: 16
    Gender: Male

    The thing is where I live I can't just go out for a jog because I'm surrounded by motorways and the only kids around are about 7 years old so I can't go out and play soccer etc etc.

    So what would you advise for me to do? I used to do 25 sit ups and night but soon learned it was a bad idea, then I tried wii fit for a while, it was going well, then it took too long and I just lost determination.

    I don't understand where I put all the weight on because my day ALWAYS contains:

    12-1pm Ham & cheese sandwich on brown bread With a bottle of water some sweets called 'Millions'
    4-6pm Fries with either chicken, fish, or mince...
    Some days around 9pm a snack like another smaller ham sandwich
    And I drink either Pepsi MAX or Water

    So obviously I gain weight because of the millions, and the late snack, but I've cut them out before and I lost no weight. This is I'm guessing due to lack of exercise. I tried doing 10 minute jog, 10 minute step step aerobics, and small exercises like sit ups and jumping around for another 10 minutes so I got 30 minutes exercise.

    So can you please give me a viable exercise routine considering I have no appliances and I live surrounded by roads and motorways. Also, What would you change about what I eat and WHEN should I do the exercises?

    tttyyyyyyyyy

    • ANSWER:
      Hi

      You are not eating breakfast? This is the most important meal of the day!!!!!

      First of all what your eating is the most important part of any 'weight loss' plan - exercise second. You aren't eating enough good food through the day so your metabolism is very slow - this is why you cant lose any weight.

      Unfortunatley with a diet like you have explained it won't matter what or how much exercise you do - you won't lose weight. Nutrition is the key here!

      You should be eating around 5 - 6 small meals a day - this way your body stays feuled and will help your betabolism to increase. When your metabolism increase this means you burn off what you eat. Now incorporate exercise with this and you will lose weight.

      It is very important to eat right - lots of fresh vegetables & fruit, lean meats like chicken, turkey, red meat, good nuts as they are high in protein like almonds, and you can still have your little treats every now and then - you dont have to avoid them altogether.

      You want to adopt a new healthier lifestye that you can live with - not one that makes you eliminate all the yummy stuff!

      I hope this has helped you a little - nutrition is the key...

      Good luck

    Anyone please, please help. Weight loss?
    I am 15 years old, 5'4 and 130 pounds. I do know I am in the average weight zone but i've been told a few times it wouldn't hurt if I lost a few pounds.
    That's where I need your help, of course. First of all, please know I am very serious about this and almost willing to do whatever it takes, aside from starvation and all that.
    Losing at least 10lbs isn't too much to ask, is it? What would be the best foods to eat? Like what for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks (if any). If I don't have specific things, I'll end up just reaching for the junk food.
    Also, would this exercise plan help with weight loss? 30 mins on the trampoline, 20-30 mins on the treadmill (I don't enjoy running much), and about 30 min of some jump roping? If you have any more suggestions that would be great.
    I know you think that I should worry about my weight right now but i can't help it. I'm not nearly as big as some people at my school and still other kids call me "fatty" and all that. I'm tired of seeing myself and being disgusted. My mother was thinking about having the gastric bypass surgery and I told her I didn't want her to have it. I didn't tell her it was because I was afraid she'd get smaller then me and i'd be embarrassed.

  31. QUESTION:
    unexplained weight gain?
    hi, i am 17 years old and i am very concerned with what caused me to gain this much weight. i was chunky growing up (about 15 lbs more then the average kids my age) when i was about 8 i began taking adderall for my SEVERE adhd. we were unaware of the side effects and i ended up getting too skinny (guant look, bones sticking out, sick looking, ect.) my mom took me off of it because of she feared that the weight loss was too unnhealthy. i gradually gained the weight back. when i was about 10 i was about 40 lbs heavier and i stayed around 150-160 lbs (and very short) til the 8th grade when i decided to go back on my adderall for ADHD problems ONLY. i totally forgot about the weight loss and before i knew it i was down about 40 lbs. everyone was so amazed by my weight loss and it didnt even phase me at the time. i decided to go off of it one summer (due to the weird side effects Adderall was giving me.) I would gain about 5-10 lbs a year and i didnt really worry about it. Last year, I began birth control (I forget what kind) but it was the pill. I only took it for about 2-3 months because i kept forgetting to take them and i wasnt even that sexually active. i also took the plan b pill once a year and a half ago. I got a boyfriend who took me out to eat alot (so I wasnt eating healthy). And I was put on Paxil and Lamictal (idk how to spell it haha) for my bipolar, aniexty, and depression. ***What I need to know is if anyones had any weight gain issues with any of the medications I've taken (Paxil, getting off of Adderall, Lamictal, Plan B pill, birth control pills.) I'm just concerned because this is the heaviest i've ever been and I've gained over 60 lbs in a year and a half. I'm currently back on my Adderall for both weight loss side effects and adhd (i truly have it) I know your not suppose to take it for weight loss but I really did feel helpless at the time (my mom is constantly pressuring me to take it for weight loss, kids at school make fun of my weight gain, and I've developed severe depression, aniexty, and a binge eating disorder) I haven't noticed any weight loss and it's been about a month and I do plan to just start working out instead. ****Also if you've ever been on Adderall, did you have problems loosing weight the second time taking it? Anyway, I don't plan on relying on this medication to solve my problems so I don't need rude comments and lecturing about my choice. Thanks for any advice, experiences, and thoughts on why I gained so much. Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      Weight is not an indication of good nutrition. Please do research on ideal daily nutrition for your boys instead of stuffing them food and getting them heavier or worse, fat.

      If you are feeding them with the right amount of nutrition a day, then you shouldn't worry about their weight because it is normal for children to have a high metabolism. Once they reach a certain age, they will eventually fill in the normal weight.

      For now, the best you can do is give them nutritious food (none of the junk fatty foods and avoid too much protein as this may trigger an increase in uric acid and cause arthritis) and give them multivitamins.

      I don't know if it's necessary, but you can also have them checked for worms. Sometimes you cannot avoid parasites and this may also be a cause which can be common among children.

      I was based in Qatar for a year and I have seen the eating habits of people in the middle east. While I enjoy the food, I've always been afraid that I'm not eating right. My personal favorite is Roasted Lamb and Bukhari and to eat it on one big tray with everybody digging in is even more appetizing. I've been to several dinners where parents would force the kids to eat because it was haram to waste food, and these kids were already obese. I hope that you can do better for your sons and feed them the right way, Insha'allah. Good luck.

I know it sounds like I'm lying but I do not have the first clue as to how to lose weight. I have learned to maintain my weight by slowing down on eating and trying to move around a little more when I see the scale go up at all, but I don't know how to actually lose it. I have tried diets and pills and those do not work. I guess I should tell you a little about me so maybe you can give me advice on the best things I can do personally. My mother never had a vehicle when I was going up, so we walked everywhere we had to go. My legs strong and only have fat in the top inner thighs. I got pregnant when I was 14. When I was 6 months pregnant, I was standing off a curb and a town bus came by and I got hit. Mostly in the left shoulder and I was spun in the bus' wheel and thrown some feet away. I gave birth when I was 15. (And no, I didn't even know what abortion was back then, let alone my mother would have forbid it). I started getting back pain when I was 15 and I went to the doctor. He said I had slight scoliosis in my back. He sent me for physical therapy where they did electronic muscle something w/hot towels, light exercises while on my back, and cardio stationary bicycle workouts (the one that has a seat). I lost about 35 lbs and felt great. When I was 17, I met my current boyfriend. We had some trouble between our families and ended up getting an apartment together when I was 18. The only place we could afford was away from anything I knew and I didn't have a license. He ended up telling me to stay home and he will work. When we have enough money, I can get a license. We have had a rough relationship over the next couple of years. When I turned 20, I worked at a restaurant and fell down the steps out back. I hit my lower back above my butt on my left side.Shortly after that, I got pregnant with my second baby. I delivered when I was 21. I finally got my license when I was 22 when I finally found someone that would take me for it. I smoked off an on since I was 16. Quitting isn't a problem. I am quit right now. I only start up again when I go to a bar in the summer (only happens maybe twice a summer and once a winter). But I can quit shortly after. I have a little obsessive complusiveness but weight is one thing I don't try to be a perfectionist on. Mostly because I don't know how. I have not worked for about five years. I know you are probably thinking what a loser and you can be right, but I can go on and on about how I messed up my life. I was a straight a student, very popular, and threw everything away. I quit school, I had a kid when I was way to young to even know what sex is, I have been with someone not good for me, and so on and so on. But I am asking for help. I want to start fixing my life and making it better so my kids can be proud of me. I want to be able to go out of the house without feeling sick. I sit home and I know I have to lose weight, and I know I have to start working. I do not have many friends. Any that have come in my life stab me in the back. I know I have depression. I have not had medical insurance for years. I have pain in my back and a lot in my neck. I do not sleep regularly. Now, to my body. I am 5'3". I weight 225 lbs. I have tighter legs. I have a small, very tight butt (if you know how to get a bigger butt, please let me know! gaining weight is sooo not how). I have a very large mid-section. I don't have really big arms. They seem to have stayed thin like I was before I got pregnant when I was 14. I have larger boobs (40d some bras 40dd). Please help me with any advice you have about a weight loss plan I can use. I was born with a pin-sized hole in my heart and tachycardia. I grew out of that when I was 3 1/2. I think I might have a blood pressure problem and I know if I don't eat I shake like I have a blood sugar problem. I am not making any excuses and will try any legitimate suggestions. I have a strong will and I hope to put it toward my goal.
    Also, I have a desktop computer and I ordered a lapop so I can get rid of the desk and make room for a piece of exercise equipment. What would be my best choice?
    I read over what I wrote and it sounds really awful. I can send a pic to show you I am not the largest woman in the world or anything.
    iTobi, I have really strong legs. The first exercise I can do for over an hour and then it just gets boring. It really does nothing for me. Thanks for the advice though. I need more explainations of midsection help. I do not know how to dance or exercise. I remember when I was younger and I went to a dance class 5 times for this play we were doing and the instructor held me in place and moved me becaus I don't hold my body where it should b. How do I know I am holding my body the way it should be while doing an exercise? I am not acting stupid either, like other people have said, I really don't know.
    I don't understand. I am not 53, although ironically, that's my birthday. anyway, I do not show this side of me to the rest of the world. I put on a thick shell and take care of my kids and my home very well. I do not let my kids or anyone else know that I have all these problems.

  35. QUESTION:
    How much weight do I have to lose to increase my chances of getting pregnant?
    My husband and I have been married for 2 years and are ready to have kids. We have been trying on and off again trying for 2 years. So I decided to lose some weight. I am on a weight loss plan through my doctor's office. So far I have been doing well and I have lost 23 pounds in 4 weeks. How much weight should I lose to increase my chances of getting pregnant? I am really excited about losing the weight and I will be even more excited to get pregnant. Is there anyone else out there who is overweight and trying to conceive? Any suggestions?

  36. QUESTION:
    Need a exercise plan?
    Ok enough excuses and putting it off until tomorrow, I need to kick start my weight-loss plan. The only problem is I don't know how I can fit it into my working week! The only day I can say I get free time is on a monday. I work Tuesdays - Friday all day, and don't get home until 6.30pm I need to then make the kids dinner and do homework with them. So by the time, all this is done and I've washed up, its 8,30pm and I go to bed at 9.30 or 10pm if I'm not that tired! but I do get tired which is why i go at 9,.30pm. and I'm up at 6am. Weekends are spent doing the house work/ laundry shopping etc... I do a lot of working to and from work, so I'd say a total of 2 hours getting to and fro from work. I do walk around a fair bit at work, but its mainly desk based! .
    I want to lose around 3stone and I hope to do this by August. my bmi is 27 and should be 25. I had a medical test this morning, and the doc said I'm healthy and its not a risk for me to be this size. but I'd rather tackled it now than let it carry on. And i feel ready to do so now!
    I am trying to make up a diet sheet to eat low GI foods? Do you think this is a good plan?? what would you suggest I can do? Thanks in advance. :)

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, good for you, for tackling this issue.
      I know it's very hard for working people to stick to a healthy lifestyle, but there are some ways you can get extra workouts in.
      Perhaps try to get some exercise in the morning? My art history teacher lives some 30 minutes drive from the school, he wakes up 4am daily to get a good workout. I see that you go to bed at a decent time, and you said you're not tired. If you're not a heavy coffee drinker, you may be able to wake up earlier in the morning without putting too much stress on your body. Try to wake up maybe an hour earlier each day and see if that'll work. You don't have to do this everyday.
      At work, I know it's tough to stay in one spot, but try this, keep your legs straight under your desk, point the toes and maybe flip it up and down as if you're swimming while sat on the office chair for as long as you can hold. Given there's a front cover to your desk... nobody can see this. It gives an interesting workout.
      GI value is the amount a certain food raise your blood sugar by, in an hour. A low-GI diet usually mean there's a lot of fiber in the food or low sugar. It's not as clear as an indicator of wither a food is healthy or not as say, the ingredients list. But, it is a good way to notice simple sugar. Low GI foods are absorbed less rapidly by the body, and do not give you a 'sugar high' and the crash. Sticking with low GI food can keep your Insulin in check and prevent eating binge. It'll help, but it's better if you just learn the reason why each food is healthy and pick base on what you need.
      Not much I can say about the long@$$ drive to work. Maybe get a stress ball and squeeze that during traffic.
      Good Luck

I decided to go to the fitness room where I live and lately I have been going swimming a

I don't want to go on a diet but I do want to be healthy and look good and weigh what I should weigh for my age. Thanks. Please no rude comments.

      http://tiny-url.org/?XxN6zl

      Hello,

      I was in a similar situation not too long ago. I needed to lose some weight for the summer.

      I tried almost every weight loss program under the sun, and nothing seemed to work.

      Out of frustration one day I was searching on google. Out of my frustration came the greatest day of my life. I found a website that gave an honest review of different weight loss programs.

      Their number one product claimed I could lose 21 pounds in 28 days. Naturally I was a little skeptical, but I was also desperate. I purchased the program (around something) and dove right in.

      Of course, I did not lose 21 pounds in the first 28 days. But, I did lose 18 pounds in the first 28 days. In my opinion, this program was totally worth it. Because it actually gives great results, and is not too expensive.

      This website has ended all of my frustrations and desperation when it comes to losing weight. Be sure to check it out now.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey,
      I'm trying to loose weight to this summer and I've also, been picked on to and I'm fed up with it like totally.

      Some quick info:
      1. Skinny isn't always healthy
      2. Just say to yourself you can do it.
      3. When exercising gradually add to it (ex. You do 10 push ups when you start well as your body begins to understand this next time go for 11 or 13 etc.)
      4. No matter how fa you are, you are still PRETTY.
      5. Say this to yourself when you wake up
      I'm fat thats spelled
      P- Pretty
      H- Hot
      A- and
      T- Thick
      6. Look at Mo'nique the comedian she PHAT.

      Although, I know this doesn't really answer your questions these are some tips I'm trying to do and don't listen to knowbody your Pretty Hot and Thick - PHAT all ways remember that and don't let nobody put you down.

  42. QUESTION:
    Exercises for weight loss?
    So I want to lose weight, and just weight in general, as in - lose weight around my entire body. I have a lot of belly fat, some really jiggly thighs (haha), a double chin, pretty chubby-ish cheeks, and some pretty big-ish arms. I wanna lose weight, and I wanna know what exercises I should do.

    Like, should I do cardio? What kid of cardio exercises are there? And I don't just want to lose weight, I wanna get pretty toned too. So what exercises do I have to do to lose weight all over my body, and to get toned?

    Also, what kinds of foods should I eat? I'm starting to cut out on junkfood/greasy food and I wanna start to eat healthy. What kinds of food should I eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? And also, is it okay to eat healthy and exercise during the weekdays (Monday-Friday) and have breaks on Saturday and Sunday (meaning, I don't exercise those days and can have maybe a little junkfood).

    But yeah, what are some exercises and what should I put into my healthy diet?

    Oh, and I want to get fit, too. Like, I'm totally out of shape/exercise. Even when I run/walk down or up the stairs, I'm out of breath. I wanna get in shape and get more active. What are some ways I can do that?

    Oh, and how long would this whole weight loss/toning/getting in shape plan take if I want to lose around 15 pounds if I do the exercises/healthy diet all week except on weekends? And I'm just asking, cause if it's going to take long, I don't really care. I'm sick of all this flab and I just want it gone. So I guess I'm pretty determined to lose weight, and don't really care how long it'll take. But yeah, thanks! :)

    • ANSWER:
      Calm down :) determination and confidence are two AMAZING ways to be happy and improve your look. First, I must stress NOT to go on a commercial diet. They damage your body more than you can imagine. Eat very healthy. Fruits, vegetables, meat (grilled and baked, not fried), and dairy. Do not worry about a snack or two. Don't eat 3 heavy meals a day, that is very important! Graze on healthy foods a bit all throughout the day. And for exercise, don't do work outs for bulking up. Try yoga, running, swimming, and other cardio exercises. Some sit ups and crunches, and some push ups, but go slowly with both. Running, jump-rope, swimming, hula hoops, and things that get your heart racing are great for toning your body. drink water as much as you need while exercising and a lot afterward. Water is a natural cleanser and will completely restore your body if you drink the right amounts. Also, something that has gotten me in shape quickly and effectively (and is very fun) is erotic dancing. Take a class. Rent a video. Look some moves up online. And just put on some music and dance. It makes you loose and rhythmic and gets you in touch with your sexy, feminine side. Very fun. Don't panic, and be sure to relax as well as work hard! Good luck! You can always email me if you need further assistance :)

    help on weight loss for wedding,.....?
    I have recently got engaged (19th april 2009) and we are planning on getting married in June 2012.

    I am currently 23 stone, 5ft10 and female and would like to get down to my ideal weight of 10 stone by the time i get married. I don't want to be stupid about it and lose 3 stone in a week (lol), so I figure if i lose 1-2 lbs a week then I can easily hit this target.

    The problem is i suffer with eating disorders, I have suffered with bulimia in the past, binge eating and starvation. At the moment I am either not eating or only eating one meal at night. I know this isnt good, I know the body holds onto anything you eat and you will not lose weight.

    My question is, can anyone suggest a simple eating plan that is cheap and easy (I have 3 kids at home), how many calories I should be taking in, and any form of exercise bearing in mind I am severely obeseand suffer with sciatica. Basically any help or tips to help me get to where I want to get.

    I am just starting a blog on the subject of weight loss and also smoking cessation as I am seeing a nurse next week to help me stop smoking and am starting Slimming World next week too. I am hoping the blog may help too.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    • 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).

  45. QUESTION:
    Has anyone had any experience with Zumba for weight loss? (Good or Bad)?
    I am thinking about trying Zumba for weight loss. I am aware that you need to eat healthy in order to lose weight. I have around 10kg to lose and can't get to a gym (kids, work, uni) Anyway I have adopted a healthy eating plan and was wondering if anyone could share their experiences with Zumba for weight loss and toning?
    Thank you Annie but I am not looking for any pills to help me. I really want this weight loss to be long term so have decided to do it via a healthier lifestyle and exercise. While I do appreciate your input I am really looking for people's experience with Zumba as a form of exercise in particular.

    • ANSWER:
      Well I have been on my own weight loss program for the 3 1/2 weeks. I have lost 10 lbs so far. I take Zumba 2 days a week and I love it. It is fun and a great (intense) workout. It's like with anything else you get out of it what you put into it.

      NOTE: I have also started counting calories, eating healthy and watching portions. I try to stay within 1200 - 1400 calories per day. I exercise at a gym 6 days a week though, but you can do other things if you can't get to the gym:

      - You can power walking after dinner
      - You can exercise along with a dvd for 30 minutes
      - You can get some cheap dumbbells and strength train
      - You can increase your steps per day (park further away at the grocery store, take the stairs at work)

  47. QUESTION:
    Going raw vegan and don't want to get flaccid (weight loss/ Body Sculpting)?
    Hi,

    I'm about to go raw vegan and undergo a massive detox. It's a lifestyle change that I really need. Most of my meals will be in the form of a liquid shake for the first two months (i.e. as seen in Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.. a good movie on netflix). Anyway, I'm a 28 year old female who has had 3 kids. I'm about 210lbs and 5'8. My problem areas are my bat wings, my arms and my tummy, but other than that I'm really not a disproportional woman. Right now tho, I'm pretty saggy in those areas and I'm not okay with it.

    My question is this: On the raw vegan diet, people tend to lose at least a pound a day. I plan on using an elliptical between 30 to 60 minutes every morning, and maybe Beach Body's "Instanity" or something.

    What can I do to avoid getting more flaccid? I'm thinking regular routine, cardio and weight loss will help, along with body wraps, but if there is something else I can do then please let me know.

    I don't have a lot of time and have little to no experience with weights. I have tae bo tho, will that help? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Tae bo will help. Try pushups for your arms. See if you can find videos from The Firm, they're very good.

      I also suggest www.weightwatchers. They're great and you'll learn a lot from the meetings.

      If you didn't gain it fast, don't try to lose it fast. You'll just get frustrated.

  48. QUESTION:
    Rapid, healthy weight loss?
    Since i was a kid, I've had problems with slow metabolism and my body fat percentage, never overweight but never exactly skinny. Recently however, after taking the better part of a year off from fighting to recovery from injuries, I discovered that my weight (which i rarely check when i'm not registered for a fight) has gone from my average 180 all the way to a top of 206! At the moment I've managed to get back down to 200, but by my plan, I need to lose ten pounds a month to make weight for a fight in august. I swim 3 days a week, run the 4 off days, hit a punching bag 7 days a week and do 2 hours of grappling training every saturday, in addition to watching my diet.
    I'm finally giving in and opening myself to the idea of using a weight loss supplement. Can anyone recommend any good ones for me from the info I've given?
    I'm 6' even and my normal walking around weight in the past has ranged from 176-182 but never gone above 185, and I've competed in MMA bouts at 185, 170 and 155. my next bout is in august at 155, thus my dilemma.

    • ANSWER:
      wow how tall are u? just curious,

      i take a combo of hoodia/green tea and alli (purchased separately) but you can't eat any fat or your stool will be uncontrollable and you'll have messy gas. but if you eat healthy and exercise it should work.

  50. QUESTION:
    Help with step children? Serious answers only, please-?
    I asked this in a different category and I did not get any serious answers. Please only answer this question if you have legit advice for me- thanks! Here's the situation:
    I'm the step mom. I have 2 step sons, but they are night and day different. The 16 year old is tall, thin, athletic and popular. He loves sports and he is active. I'm a former college athlete so we bonded from day one. The 10 year old is bright and artistic. He likes to read. He is also severely over weight (he just tipped the scales at 200 lbs!) and he is a couch potato. Not video games, just nothingness. He can sit and do nothing for hours. Walking the dogs is a real stretch. He usually makes it to the end of our driveway, then heads back. We get along well (I am also an artist and we are avid readers together), but I am secretly frustrated with his weight and immaturity. The problem: Mom gives him ANYTHING and EVERYTHING he wants on the weeks he is with her (50/50 custody arrangement). At our house there is discipline. His father is very strict with him, but he is a guy. The little things go under his nose unnoticed. Last night we went for dinner with another couple. Kids were with us. The 10 year old spent the entire evening chewing with his mouth open and interrupting the adult conversation every 5 minutes. He does this because with mom he is the center of the universe. If he asks her to jump, she drops everything and asks how high! No exaggeration- she wipes his rear when he potties because he is too heavy to reach all the way around himself! She expects us to do the same! These little things are driving me crazy. I have tried to talk to my husband about the behavior and the weight issue. He is usually not receptive to anything I say because, afterall, it is his son and we only have them half the time. Do I ignore the fact he is morbidly obese for a 10 year old? I genuinely care about this little kid, but what is my role here? How do we get weight off a kid who won't exercise at all and lives 50% of the time with a mom who won't follow a weight loss plan? FYI- she is a nurse!!

    • ANSWER:
      My mom remarried when I was 11 and it sounds like I was in the exact same situation. I wasn't 200 lbs but I was very over-weight for an 11-year-old. I was also very immature. Discipline was the only thing that changed me, and my dad lost custody of my so I was able to be healthy 100% of the time. Kids don't get that they need to grow up and often times need a bit of tough love to speed up the process. As for exercising, play a game. Frisbee golf, boxing, and badminton (playing for one hour burns apx. 300 calories) would be entertaining and great exercise games you could get involved in together.

      It is surprising that his mother supports his behavior and weight if she is a nurse.

      Good luck! I hope I helped!

      @Ella- not sure about the spanking and the dying thing (maybe a bit too harsh), but talking to him and your husband is a good idea. Someone DOES need to care, before it gets even more out of hand.


10 Days To Lose Weight Fast

Most diets might make high claims of being able to burn large amounts of fat in a short period of time. The difference between their claims and the one I'm making today is that unlike those other diets, this one yields permanent results. Find out how to lose 8 pounds of fat in 10 days using a unique dieting system known as calorie shifting. If you have never heard of this unique diet system before or simply want to know more about how it works then read on.

Why Calorie Shifting Works

Unlike almost all other diets which focus intensely upon lowering calories and losing weight by not eating as much, calorie shifting turns this system upside down. The problem with these low calorie diets and this includes all the big names from atkins to south beach to the new flat belly diet is that by focusing so much attention onto lowering the calories eaten per day you effectively slow down your metabolism to a snails pace. This has everything to do with the homeostasis your body is constantly seeking out, the balance that allows your body to survive day after day.

    What is the fastest diet to lose weight 10 pounds fast...?
    From personal experience only please! I want to lost 10 pounds in at the most 2 weeks... & yes it can be water weight... I have heard of those cleanse drinks wear you fast and only drink for like 2-3 days but I don't know if hey are safe and you only lose like 3 pounds.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, This is from personal experience. My friend lost 10 pounds in about 3 weeks. All she did was cut out the sodas, fast foods, breads, pasta and sweets and ate a little bit better like more fruits and veggies. She did cheat every now and then, so if you were really strict with this, I'm sure you'd lose the weight with no problem.

      Since you asked about cleanse drinks, I'll give you a link to a website that has some information about diets including some kind of a cleanse diet. You might want to check it out.

    how can i lose weight in 10 days with eating food?
    i want to lose weight fast in 10 days flat stomach thinner waist but by eating everday food can i ?

    • ANSWER:
      Yoga and Swimming... I have a flat tummy now but a week ago it was slightly bulging(after 5 hours(1hr each - 5 days) of yoga and two hours of swimming last week)...

      Ask a trainer which yoga asana would be appropriate for flattening your tummy and waist reduction.. If you are just a bit on the extra weight side you could achieve results quite fast say within a week but well otherwise it usually takes a month to slim down if you do asanas daily and the breathing correctly during asanas...

  5. QUESTION:
    How to lose weight fast and healthy ? 10 points?
    I need to lose about 10 pounds in about 1&1/2 month. Any tips ?
    Will walking 1 mile 5 days a week help ?
    and I need to lose some tummy & thigh fats.

    • ANSWER:
      Running that distance 5 days a week will work more quickly. And it will tone your legs better than walking. But be realistic about what you can do, time and bodywise. Also, don't eat anything that comes from the tip of the food pyramid. Stick with raw vegetables and fruits, whole grain breads (not white processed), no soda or candy, and pick lean meats like chicken and turkey. Eating those things is better than starving yourself entirely.

      Of course you cannot lose that much in a week. Average weight loss is only 9-15 lbs a year and that requires diet and regular exercise.

  13. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to lose weight during a 10 day water fast and not gain it back?
    I want to lose my last 10 lb

    I worked out that my BMR means that even with a damaged metabolism I could be able to maintain my weight If I eat 1000 calories daily. So if I fasted and lost the remaining weight and then started eating 1000 calories (increasingit gradually to 1400) would I maintain?

    • ANSWER:
      no, u never keep off all of the weight u lose when ur fasting. after 3 days ur body enters starvation mode and then stores the next thing u eat in preparation of starving again. theres no way to trick ur brain and stomach into knowing that ur not going through a famine and u want to not eat, it happens automatically...

      if ur really going to eat less after ur done the 10 days of only water, then you'll keep some of it off, maybe as much as half....but thats like, the upper expectation.... dont eat what u normally eat the day after or eat anything u know thats bad for you (like mcdonalds or chocolate) for at least a week, bcuz then your going to gain it all back immediately

  14. QUESTION:
    what can i do to lose weight in 10 days without having to pay alot of money?
    i am trying to lose weight fast because i need to wear something smalller than my size to a party. what should i do?

    • ANSWER:
      I suggest doing some exercises that get the legs moving, such as walking, jogging, running, swimming or bike riding.
      These exercises that really get your heart pumping will burn the weight off quickly.

      I like push ups, yoga stretches, pull ups, crunches, curl ups, leg stretches, calf raises, and squats as far as being good toning exercises that use no equipment and cost zero money to perform.

      I like taking some dumbbells and doing some easy bicep curls, military presses, and lateral raises.

      I think diet is important also and try to eat healthy home-cooked meals with lots of vegetables in them.

      I try to stay away from the pop and sugar, candy, and fast food.

      I try to get a good night's sleep each night.

    • ANSWER:
      You sound like you have the right idea about the size you want to be. Quick fixes don't work coz you just get fed up then stop the exercise or break your diet. It's simple really just eat sensibly and healthily and stay active. Don't forget to give your self the odd treat either, and most of all just be patient, when you lose the weight slowly and healthily you won't put it back on. Just be patient, soon you'll be loving the way you look. Good luck and stay focused x

    so someone please help?i have no clue when it comes to losing weight.pleae do not inform me about starvation,metabolism,or starvation mode please i know all about that haha

    Ok thankyou!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Weight Watcher point system works really well, and you don't need to work out. If you do work out make sure you eat more calories to make up for it. Look at the calories, fat and fiber on everything you eat. Divide the calories by 50. Divide the fat grams by 6. Add those points together. Divide the fiber by 4, and SUBTRACT those points. You should eat 20-24 points a day. Google WW points calculator to find an easy to do it online.

      You should eat salads with low-cal dressing, and some chicken, lots of fruits and veggies, whole grains, wheat bread, maybe oatmeal for breakfast, drink lots of water and don't eat after 7pm...

      Good luck!

    Ok thankyou!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Ok, I've said this to many other people and I'll say it again hunn. The only way to lose that much weight in that short amount of days is the unhealthy way. Like the Master Cleanse or juice fasting. But I personally prefer the juice fasting.

      My juice fasting routine where I lost 25 lbs in 30 days last year...
      Everyday - Blend of veggies and fruits (personal favorites are use of spinach, carrots, oranges, grapefruits, lemons, limes.) 2-3 litres of water a day and 2-3 cups of green tea a day for metabolism. The best metabolism booster would be the cayenne pepper, which I always add in my lemon juice. I also did light workouts at home. And took multi vitamin & minerals, vit c tablet, calcium mg tablet, fiber tablets and protein drinks.
      The most important thing about the fast is to prepare for it and to break it so you won't regain your lost weight. To prepare, a day or two prior to your fast, you need to eat small portions of food. When breaking the fast this is what I did and only regained 4-5 lbs... day 1 of the break I had soft fruits like bananas, the next 2-3 days I had a salad and fruits (still took my fruits drinks), and finally the next 5 days I had salad, fruits and soup. After that I ate my normal healthy meals, no more junk food, sweets, sodas, etc.
      I suggest you to reseach if you decide to do this though.

  19. QUESTION:
    How does a 13 year old lose weight fast (10 to 15 pounds)?
    I am 13, 5', and about 113 pounds. even if it doesn't like a lot all that fat goes to the wrong places. i am trying to flatten my tummy A LOT! and thighs. i can't run like outside by myself and i have no one else to do it with, i have an elliptical but i don't like it, and i do gymnastics once a week. but i never lose any weight, the only time i do is when i don't eat and exercise. I need to lose this weight by this summer so i can look good (finally) for my graduation and for my first day of high school. i want to be able to wear a bikini, feel pretty i guess.
    Thanks guys, i really do like to run, i've run 2 miles straight before but i live in a really bad neighborhood and it is supper cold outside right now. i need work out for my abs that don't hurt like heII. and a diet i can take without any one noticing because any time i try a diet my sisters and parents make fun of me.

    • ANSWER:
      You may not be done growing, so please ease up on yourself. I grew 6 inches between 13 and 17 - my sister grew a foot between 13 and 17.

      Flattening your tummy may be genetically impossible. Some people have rounded bellies, some don't. Madonna had a round belly in her early career and it really worked for her, then. Since you already do gymnastics, try pilates to strengthen your core muscles.

      Eat healthfully, drink lots of water and keep on with your gymnastics. Your body will sort itself out.

    How do I lose weight fast? 10 Points!?
    I can go to the gym about two times a week for an hour. First I start out with 20 minutes of cardio then I move on to doing 40 minutes of weights. Should I start doing 30 minutes of cardio? I try my best to keep track of my calories on an app I have on my phone. I eat about 1000-1200 calories a day, it really depends. I always eat very healthy and try my best to not sit around that much. I do have a bike that I try to ride frequently but it's very cold outside where I live. Am I on the right track? I weigh 118 and am 5 foot 4 inches. Advice please!

  24. QUESTION:
    How to lose weight fast (Like... 10~ 20 lbs in a few months)?
    Yes... so I am 5' 5" and I weigh 130 lbs now. I want to lose around 10~ 20 lbs in, preferably, a month or two. I've been going to the fitness center and doing lunges and walking and running and jogging and lifting weights for the past few months and I also play badminton like crazy (around 3- 5 hours in a week)
    However, I am not losing anything!! I don't eat huge portions and I don't eat lots and lots of junk food either... is there something wrong with me?
    Also, my mom won't let me try anything drastic like those "limit your calorie intake to 1000 calories a day" diets because I am "still a growing child."

    Do you guys have any suggestions on work outs or what I should drink or eat (and not drink and not eat) so I can lose a few pounds?

      First, I don't know everything about those so-called popular "diets" you can buy out there, but by knowledge experience they're not a good idea. Restricting yourself to some strange capsule or acai berry or tofu or drink mix thing is, well think about it. Unnatural. Some people do lose weight from these diets, but then gain it all back when it's over because they've gone back to their old ways of eating (duh, diet people), which sucks since this means you'd have to be stuck eating some weird diet plan for the rest of your life if you want to stay a certain weight. You can, and SHOULD eat normally and and still not become obese (hard to do in a world with McDonald's and TV dinners and such, but still). So, that being said, there are two simple things to watch that most people seem to fail at:

      ---How MUCH you eat - No matter what you eat (even the healthiest foods), if you're eating more of it than your body/metabolism can deal with, it means there will be unneeded leftovers in your body that will be converted to fat. So don't starve yourself, but only eat what you need.

      ---WHAT you eat - Stick to your basic food groups. A large portion of your food should be fruits and vegetables, something most Americans miss out on, and in turn end up getting more obese and/or dying sooner. Drink the right amount of water every day (six glasses or so is good, the key is to check the color of your pee, which should be light yellow. Darker means you need more water, clear is alright, but make sure you're not drinking too much). Sweets and such are actually okay and won't hurt if you keep it down (small amounts a few times a week at maximum, for example a donut, a soda, and a few pieces of candy).

      About exercising, it will help you to lose some weight, but not as fast as most people would have you think. It takes a lot of running to lose a bit of weight, and a lot of that weight can be in water/body fluids. Just make sure that if you do try to exercise, eat and drink enough so that you're not losing too much fluid or muscle mass. If your weight doesn't go down (it may even go up), don't panic; if may be that you're losing fat and building muscle (which weighs heavier than fat).

      Really though, it's much more practical, faster, and important to watch your diet and eat healthy than it is to try and "burn it off" exercising. (Which is why your exercising doesn't seem to be getting you anywhere.) Make sure to check with your doctor or BMI calculators like this: http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/ to make sure you're not going underweight.

      And lastly, this site really, really helps:
      http://www.zonediet.com/
      I don't mean to sound like I'm advertising, but that site really helps and has a (healthy) diet plan for free. It's based off of proteins, carbs, and ("good") fats. My martial arts instructor lost weight and maintains a slim/muscular figure with this, and my dad lost like 50 lbs from this and is still losing.

  26. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the 10 day water fasting diet to lose weight fast?

    • ANSWER:
      You mean skip solid food and drink only water or liquids?? When I had oral surgery done, I couldn't eat anything solid. All I had was milk, juices and Ensure for about two weeks. I lost about 10 pounds and felt very unhealthy and I couldn't wait to put the weight back. I think it's extremely unhealthy and I **strongly** advice against this type of so-called dieting. In my case it was cause I just couldn't have solids.

    HELP! Lose weight in 10 days or less! Will do anything!No soapbox about how I need at least 6 weeks!?
    Hey ya'll! I'm around 5'3 and weight 130 basically! UCK! I carry weight well but me and my family are leaving for summer vacation in 10 days and i need to drop at least 10 lb. I'm thinking about doing the fruit diet where you drink a shake every 2 hr. one and day and friut every 2 hours for the following days. Plz do not tell me I should like who I am and exsept me. But seriously I hav gret confidence and stuff but I need to lose weight fast! A toned tummy legs and arms is my most important concerens because I use to be in great shape but you can see in my face now how much weight I am gaining! I know i need to get back into a heathly lifestyel but now a fad deit is seeming really apeelin'!

    • ANSWER:
      Here...take this magic pill. You will lose 10 lbs in 10 days and have toned legs, arms and tummy.

      There is no magic diet. The best you could hope for is to lose a lot of water weight (not real weight) in that amount of time.

      It takes 3500 calories to equal 1 lb. That means in order to lose even one pound of real body weight, you would have to cut back that amount of calories in ONE DAY. You would have to do that every day for 10 days. Impossible since you don't even consume 3500 calories in a day anyway.

    • ANSWER:
      Eat equal portions of vegetables and grains at dinner. A cup of cooked rice or pasta has about 200 calories, whereas a cup of cooked veggies doles out a mere 50 calories, on average, says Joan Salge Blake, R.D., clinical assistant professor of nutrition at Boston University's Sargent College. To avoid a grain calorie overload, eat a 1:1 ratio of grains to veggies. The high-fiber veggies will help satisfy your hunger before you overeat the grains.

    • ANSWER:
      Here are 5 tips for exercises - both aerobic and strength training - you can do at home to lose weight quickly.

      Tip #1: Squats: Your buttocks and leg muscles are the largest muscles in your body. Every day in front of the mirror, put your feet at shoulder width while facing forward and squat down-and-up 10-20 times for 2 or 3 sets. This will build your leg and buttock muscles. As you build up strength, try holding 2 or 5 pound dumbbells in your hands while you work out. Be sure to warm up first, and stop if you notice any sharp pain in your knees.

      Tip #2: Pushups: Pushups are a form of strength training: during a pushup your arms have to support up to 70% of your body weight. Do 2 or 3 sets of 20 pushups to build arm strength and increase your RMR.

      Tip #3: Jumping jacks: Jumping jacks are an excellent whole-body aerobic workout you can do right at home. Do 4 or 5 sets of 20 jumping jacks, or as needed. Hint: if you live in an apartment or stay in a second-story bedroom, be considerate of your neighbors by going outside or doing these in a first story room.

      Tip #4: Fast walking: While walking is in itself a great aerobic exercise, fast walking is even better for burning fat. Make sure you really stretch first and warm up with regular walking. Once you start your faster walking pace, try to maintain as much speed as possible for as long as you can. If you get tired, try doing intervals of fast walking followed by short periods of slower walking.

      Tip #5: Stepping: Stepping is a great way to get your heart beating and to burn calories. You can use your stairs at home, but for best results I suggest buying specialized stackable step mats and stack them up to at least 15 inches (38 cm). Do 2 to 3 sets of 20 steps each to begin. Even though you may not feel like the stepping is helping, it is! This exercise will not only help you lose weight but will also help shape up your buttocks and legs.

  37. QUESTION:
    Why have I only lost 10 lbs and what can I do to lose weight faster?
    I have been working on losing weight the healthy and realistic way since the begining of March. I used to drink soda, eat white bread, a dessert after every meal, and I never worked out, etc. Now I eat wheat wraps (no bread), barely any sweets, and drink water or the mix in crystal lights/propel every day (no soda), etc. I even power walk 5 days a week and am now up to 5+ miles a day.

    • ANSWER:
      Firstly I would say that you shouldn't judge this by using your scales. What is more important is not how much you weigh on the scales but how you look or FEEL.
      It may be that you are effectively turning fat into muscle and muscle is heavier than fat, therefore you may be burning fat but not necessarily losing weight. It is entirely possible for a sprinter to weigh more than someone who is overweight.
      Secondly, do you know where your weight falls in reference to your BMI? It might be an idea to check.
      If you do need to use scales to monitor your weight, there are a type of scales that pass an electrode through you and display on the screen what percentage of your weight is actually fat and water. They are extremely useful.
      Considering the amount of exercise you say you are doing it sounds like you are simply utilisiing your body more effectively and muscle is replacing fat.

  39. QUESTION:
    how fast would i lose weight???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
    if i ate just apples for like 4 days and exercised like crazy would i lose weight fast? i want to lose 10 pounds fast.

    • ANSWER:
      Not sure how or why you want to lose 10lbs fast, but you could always just sweat your water weight out. Depending on your weight 10lbs could be pretty easy, but I wouldnt suggest it.

      I guess you could lose 10lbs eating apples and exercising like crazy for four days (this also depends on your body and metabolism), but you should consider adjusting your daily regiment in terms of eating and exercising, so you don't need to kill yourself to lose 10lbs in 4 days. If you exercised daily and ate right, those 10lbs wouldn't bother you to begin with.

  40. QUESTION:
    In 10 days how much weight can I lose, and what can I do to lose weight faster?

    • ANSWER:
      No no no... You, as a woman, should only loose about a pound or two a week. That's it. If you're loosing more it means that your body is malnourished or you're hurting yourself. Don't be so freaked out over your weight, first of all, but for sure don't be hurting your body to loose a couple pounds. Be careful!

  41. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried water fasting to lose weight fast?
    I'm getting married in 2 weeks and I'm planning on going on a water fast to lose between 10 and 20lbs in 10 days. It is healthy and will cleanse my body and will make me feel more beautiful on my wedding day. I just wanted to know if anyone has tried this and what your results were. Thankyou in advance for all your answers!
    the hollywood diet is basically the same thing as juice fasting which is usually done for 30 days. Water fasting is only recommended for 10 days. And it cleanses your body of all toxins. death by water fasting is very rare but thankyou for your concern.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey I just went off a water fast. Honestly, it was very draining - mentally and physically. I only lasted about 5 days. My body did feel clean however. I was tired all of the time and I couldn't concentrate on school work. I would recommend you not go on the water fast just because you should be happy and alive on your wedding...not grumpy and tried, like you will be if you fasted. BUT if you're dead set on doing it, it would be a lot easier if you didn't do anything too mentally straining, stressful, because it'll only add on to the stress you'll feel from not eating. Maybe it would be easier for you to go on a liquid diet -- not just water. Oh I lost about five pounds, mostly water weight. Whatever you decide to do, hope you get the results you want :]

I figure if I lose the weight fast it will be easier just keeping it off. I'm not really that active however I do a lot of walking. Any certain diets I can go on that are about 10 days or under?

    • ANSWER:
      Master cleanse! Although not designed to lose weight,it is very beneficial, and will help you lose weight. It is a basic mixture of lemons and water and maple syrup with some cyan pepper. Actually tastes pretty good, like a slightly spicy lemonade. Anyway it cleanses all your organs, and in turn also makes you lose weight. It is a 5-10 day program and takes a little will power, but so does anything to lose weight. Search "master cleanse" on google, and you should find the exact recipe and instructions.
      I highly recommend this!

    • ANSWER:
      Eat Less
      Reduce your calorie intake below your calorie expenditure and you will lose weight - it's not rocket science, cut the 3 course feasts and eat moderate meals - simple, yes?
      This doesn't mean you can't eat and lose weight, you just need to be smarter about what you eat.
      Eat Smarter
      Eating Less is elementary and will work, but eating smarter is even better. Eat foods that are low on the glycemic index because they keep your energy even and help you to maintain fat burning all day and night. Eating to lose weight is important, so choose Low GI foods to keep energy levels even and fat burning at a maximum.

Any tips? I just want to lose my love handles and some weight off my thighs. I am in need.

    • ANSWER:
      There's no point in working out for hours and days if you do not eat the right food. You must at least eat 3 meals a day and will be better if you could break up into 5 meals a day.

      you need to have a good diet plan that chooses the right food to take, and with some strategy and goal setting, you can lose 2 pounds per week and maintain a healthy weight for long term.

10 Days Diet To Lose Weight

Have you been struggling with an effective way of how to lose 10 pounds in 10 days but have yet to find an effective solution? If so then this article will explain how to effectively lose 10 pounds permanently in a short period of time without struggling and more importantly I'll show you how to quickly lose 10 pounds in ten days and keep it off for good.

Quick Low Calorie Diets... Don't Work!

It's an unfortunate truth but every low calorie diet suffers from one fatal flaw and that is that they do not adjust a body's metabolism appropriately for pre and post diet phases. You see your body is constantly seeking out an equilibrium or homeostasis from which it can stabilize its bodily functions one of which is your metabolism. When you suddenly change the amount of calories you consume daily from a large amount to a low amount you are left with a metabolism trying to calibrate to changes which spark scarcity triggers in your body. As a result low calorie diets often cause the opposite of what you hope for by stunting the metabolic processes in an effort to help the body survive or at least so it thinks.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What is the fastest diet to lose weight 10 pounds fast...?
    From personal experience only please! I want to lost 10 pounds in at the most 2 weeks... & yes it can be water weight... I have heard of those cleanse drinks wear you fast and only drink for like 2-3 days but I don't know if hey are safe and you only lose like 3 pounds.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, This is from personal experience. My friend lost 10 pounds in about 3 weeks. All she did was cut out the sodas, fast foods, breads, pasta and sweets and ate a little bit better like more fruits and veggies. She did cheat every now and then, so if you were really strict with this, I'm sure you'd lose the weight with no problem.

      Since you asked about cleanse drinks, I'll give you a link to a website that has some information about diets including some kind of a cleanse diet. You might want to check it out.

  2. QUESTION:
    How much weight could I lose in 10 days with crash diet and exercise?
    Yes I KNOW a crash diet is not healthy, and I KNOW the weight will come right back. Please don't respond with a lecture as I do understand this is only a quick fix and is not by any means a healthy way to lose weight and keep it off. But for those who understand and can help me, I have 10 days and plan on working out on my eliptical everyday and crash dieting. Any advice on details of a good crash diet? Thanks!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Good crash dieting is a lot of fiber, veggies & fruits, and lean meats such as turkey or chicken.

      Think oatmeal & a banana for breakfast, grilled chicken & a salad (with no cheese or croutons) for lunch, and grilled chicken/salmon for dinner with steamed veggies. Have fruits for snacks, or 94% fat-free popcorn (really high in fiber!)

      Drink lots of water between meals to keep yourself hydrated, and don't drink any carbonated drinks. The calories in them are amazing, and carbonation makes you feel hungry. No gum either, chewing signals your stomach to expect food but it won't receive any-which will make you hungry! So have a mint if you feel the need.

      Don't forget a daily vitamin too, just so you get the vitamins you'll be missing out on. It'll keep you feeling healthy & energized every day (although I wouldn't reccommend taking a vitamin without food, it might make you sick to your stomach.)

      Half hour on your elliptical every night & eating high fiber/high protein foods will equal success.

      You shouldn't expect to lose more than 3-5 lbs. in just 10 days time on a crash diet.

  3. QUESTION:
    How much weight can i lose on the soup diet if i did it for 10 days only?
    Really want to lose weight before Christmas! All those other diets were too hard for me lol..If i did the soup diet, eating 3 bowls of soup a day and drank 1.5 litres of water, exercised and did all this for 10 days only, how much weight would i lose?

    • ANSWER:
      well, it all depends on how much you desire to get slim, u will have to make a few sacrifices for sure. i would suggest you to eat healthy and not just a soup diet and workout with dedication. if you follow me i would say u might lose around 10 pounds. it also depends on how much fat do u have on your body.. if you have a lot of fat, you must loose more than 10 pounds. appx.15 ..
      I hope it helps
      Good luck

  4. QUESTION:
    How much weight can you lose taking the hcG diet for 10 days?
    Im planning on doing the hcG diet for the next 10 days, and I was just wondering if anybody knew the maximum amount of weight I would lose? Im planning on going to North Carolina next week and I'm going to the beach so I need to lose a few pounds.

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on your weight. If you only have a few pounds to lose, like 10-15, then it'll take longer to lose that amount than if you have over 20 pounds to lose. With the HCG drops, I'm guessing you could lose 7 pounds easy. More if you're really strict while on the VLCD. Remember you only eat 500 calories a day, no sugar (nor fake sugars like splenda), 200 grams of meat total, 2 fruits, and 1 bread thing. If you want to lose the weight faster, you may want to cut out the bread stick and 1 of the fruits. Honestly, I started these drops 4 days ago (2 days of Phase 1, and now I'm on my second day of Phase 2) and I just got on the scale a few minutes ago and I lost 5 pounds in 1 day! But I have quite a bit of weight to lose so that won't be the results for everyone. If you exercise at least 30 minutes a day also, you could lose even more than 10 pounds a week. Also, I haven't been hungry on this diet. The drops help soo much! Good luck and have fun in N. Carolina!

    But I am a vegetarian so all of the meat must be replaced with Tofu for me. But the diet plan says I can't substitute anything or else it won't work.
    Would that work anyway? Or work at all?

    Or should I use this instead?
    Diet Program To Lose Calories
    I have found This Diet Program , that is designed to flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well being. It will improve your emotions because of its cleansing effects. After 7 days you will begin to feel lighter because you will be lighter The effectiveness of this seven day plan is that the food eaten burns more calories than they give to the body in caloric value, but is completely nutritional and gives all vitamins, elements, etc. as required. This plan can be used as often as u like however it is suggested that you rest for a week between each repetition.

    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 on the first day. Especially watermelon . If you limit your fruit consumption to melons, your chances of losing a lot of weight on the 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 boiled potato for breakfast. 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 eat as many as eight bananas and drink three glasses of milk. This will be combined with the vegetable soup, which may be eaten in limited quantities.

    DAY FIVE - Today is a feast day. You will eat sprouts and paneer and tomatoes. Eat 280 grams of sprouts and paneer. 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 - Sprouts and paneer and vegetables. Today you may eat an unlimited amount of sprouts and paneer and vegetables. Eat to your heart’s content.

    DAY SEVEN - Today your food intake will consist of brown rice, fruit juices and all the vegetables you care to consume.
    Vegetables can be taken in the form of salad if desired. No dressing except malt, white vinegar, squeezed lemon, garlic and herbs. No more than one teaspoon of oil. Do keep way from beans (Lima, Pinto, kidney.) because they tend to be high in calories even though they are very good for you.

    BEVERAGES YOU MAY CONSUME WHILE ON THE PROGRAMME
    Water flavored with lemon or lime if desired.

    Plain soda

    Black coffee, No cream or cream substitute, No sugar or sweeteners.

    Black tea.

    No fruit juices before Day 7.

    HOW AND WHY IT WORKS
    DAY ONE - You are preparing your system for the upcoming program. Your only source of nutrition is fresh fruits. Fruits are nature’s perfect food. They provide everything that you could possibly want to sustain life except total balance and variety.

    DAY TWO - It starts with a fix of complex carbohydrates coupled with an oil does. This taken in the morning for energy and balance. The rest of Day 2 consists of vegetables, which are virtually calorie free and provide essential nutrients and fiber.

    DAY THREE - Day 3 eliminates the potato because you are getting your calories from the fruits. Your system is now prepared to start burning the excess pounds. You will still get cravings, which will diminish by Day 4.

    DAY FOUR - Bananas, milk and soup sound like the least desirable and strangest diet. You are in for a surprise. You will probably not eat all the bananas that you are allowed. But they are there for the potassium you wi

  7. QUESTION:
    Weight 155, on a diet to lose 10 pounds started diet today how long will it take me to lose the weight?
    age 28, 5'6 eating health food ONLY, drinking water and tea ONLY for drinks, and exercising 40 minutes a day 3 days a week?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm 23 and 5'4". I have been doing 1 hour of cardio 3 times per week and i have been eating 1500 calories a day, and i have lost 20 pounds in 2 1/2 months. You might try counting calories in addition to your workout. If you are going to cut calories, make sure that you dont consume less than 1200 calories per day, otherwise your body will go into starvation and if you start eating more you will gain weight in the end.

      good luck!

  8. QUESTION:
    How much weight can i lose in 10 days with the water only diet?
    I read about this diet and think its a little extreme to not eat at all so i think i will eat a small healthy breakfast drink only water for lunch and then a healthy dinner with maybe sum fruit around lunch time if im really hungry? Does this sound like a good idea and how much do you think i will loose in 10 days ?

    • ANSWER:
      yeah that's a good idea. lol when i read your question i thought u meant only drink water for the whole day! and eat nothing else! and i was like, woah, don't do that.

      anyway, yeah do that. or you could eat at lunchtime as well and just do a bit of exercise every few days, or every day. but if everyday, don't overdo it coz its possible to get addicted to exercise and that's really bad for you. AND if you do exercise everyday your body will get exhausted.

  9. QUESTION:
    special k diet? to lose weight? (10 points best answer. help?)?
    i love the taste of special k strawberry cereal. i heard of a diet where you eat 2-3 bowls of special k cereal a day and exercise to lose weight. just a reminder i'm a person who doesn't eat much (not because of health issues) it's because i'm NOT hungry. so i decided to start this diet. I ALREADY MADE THE DECISION. would running for 40-1 hour and 30 minutes be enough? (yes i can handle that much...i have great stamina for running for long periods of time.) how much would i lose? thanks in advance. no spam please or else it will be reported and rated a thumb down.

    • ANSWER:
      Spammers don't care if you report them..they just create new accounts.

      As for your plan, you need to make sure you consume plenty of lean protein, fruits and veggies, brown carbs, healthy fats, and lots of water. Do not allow your calories to drop below 1200/day. Hungry or not, THAT is part of what it takes to be healthy and to lose weight in a healthy manner and keep it off. Learn to eat right. If you don't eat much, then chances are you aren't overweight anyway so why are you trying to lose? Skinny isn't pretty.

      Next, at least 1 hr of exercise at least 5 days a week. Running is fine, but excessive cardio can cause breakdown of muscle tissue instead of only burning fat. Make sure you get some strength training in there also, to build muscle and speed your metabolism.

      All kinds of people post here. Some with healthy plans they want to start and some with gimmicks or unhealthy plans. No matter what excuses a person gives or what they want to try, many of us won't encourage an unhealthy plan or accept excuses. Do it right...I'm not going to risk my karma by giving someone bad advice or encouraging unhealthy practices. If you don't actually need to lose weight, then don't. You need to learn what your ideal weight range is. See the source link for that info (a calculator)

      Good luck!

  10. QUESTION:
    how can i lose weight the quickest way to lose 10 pounds in 5 days days without taking diet pills?
    i am 13 an i weigh 125 and i want to be better at sports like skateboarding,football,basketball, and soccer

    • ANSWER:
      The quickest way is to cut out red meats, starches, breads, sugars, alcohol, and sodas.

      Eat veggies (salads are good), soups, and drink TONS of water. If you get hungry between a meal, drink water to fill up.

      In moderation eat white meats, and fruits (fruits contain natural sugars, and that can put on weight)

      Practice portion control. Yes, you'll feel hungry at first, but think of your goal, and soon your stomach will start shrinking and you won't have that feeling anymore.

      Eat 5 times a day. A small breakfast. A mid-morning snack, such as an apple. A small lunch. A mid-afternoon snack, such as carrots. A lite dinner. Do not eat any later than 7pm (6pm is better.)

      Go exercise for at least an hour - two a day, incorporating weight training along with your cardio. Cardio helps to melt the fat, while weight training builds muscle. Muscle burns fat, even when you are resting. You get the idea. It also gives tone and definition. Also do a few yoga and pilates exercises to help tone those hard to reach and stubborn areas. Don't think that pilates and yoga are just for girls - a lot of guys at my gym do them to increase flexibility and to get rid of love handles.

      1. Moderate Exercise:

      Three times a week.

      2. Adequate Water Intake:

      Almost no one drinks enough and when you are losing weight, you need more. Take your weight, divide it in half and that equals the number of ounces of water you should drink each day.

      3. Good Nutrition:

      Fresh fruits and veggies, grains, low-fat meat choices. And for most, a huge reduction in "fast foods," fried foods, sugary foods, white flour products, and red meat.

      4. Good Sleep:

      This is a vital issue. Sleep is when the body rejuvenates and repairs. If you are not sleeping well, we can just about guarantee you won't lose the weight you are trying to lose.

Click > Fat Burning Secrets(http://www.healthynewage.com/fat-burning-secrets.htm)

      In the otherwise healthy person, a short term rapid weight loss program such as the one presented on this page can help to stimulate initial weight loss but do not be deceived. You need to change your lifestyle for weight loss to be permanent, if extra weight has been a chronic problem for you. Also, because this particular 10-day plan emphasizes meat and butter, it would not be appropriate, obviously, for anyone with heart problems.

      We feel that carb-sparing diets that are as severe as this one should never been taken over a week to 10 days. To learn more about the wholistic approach to weight loss, visit our Lose Weight by Getting Healthy(http://www.healthynewage.com/123.html) page.

      Detoxing before such a fast-start diet can dramatically increase your results and also, detox is just a good tool for stimulating weight loss and more energy. Receive detox nutritional support(http://www.nativeremedies.com/products/detox-drops-natural-detoxification-methods.html?img=32&kbid=2698) here.

    How much weight can I lose in 25 days? 10 points best answer ?
    How much weight can I lose in 25 days? And how can I lose weight in 25 days? I'd like to bike instead of running, how long would I have to bike a day to lose weight. Diet? Exercise plan? Btw, I'm 14, female, 5,6", 140lbs. AND I want to tone my thighs, so that's why I'm biking instead of running. Please help.

    • ANSWER:
      Depend on your eating style, minutes of your bike riding and area surrounding. You will lose 10 TO 17 Pounds:-) How strict is your diet? I hear you can lose 90 pounds for six months

  13. QUESTION:
    If I diet for six days a week, and pig out on one day, should I lose weight?
    I heard of a diet where you eat less and healthy for a whole week but eat all you want on one day for that week and lose much more weight. Does this diet really work?

    Also, I weigh 125 pounds and I'm a 5'3, I want to lose 10-15 pounds within a week. If the diet above doesn't work, can you suggest one that will be simple to follow.

    • ANSWER:
      ok, I'm a health professional let me help you out

      You can lose 10-15 pounds in a week but most of what you would be losing is water weight, this is not healthy anyway, you want to lose fat, so I would shoot for a more realistic goal....also pounds are not an accurate way of knowing how good your diet is working, better just to go by the way you look and your inches around your waist and other areas.

      The diet you describing is fine. Many Many health nuts, body builders, etc. you use this plan....it gives you something to look foward to. You will not have a problem with stretching your stomach and you probably wont be able to exactly pig out, because if your eating small amounts 6 times a week your stomach will tighten so on the day you want to pig out you will not be able to eat that much.

      6 small meals a day, 2 servings of fruit 2 servings of veggies, some good carbs in the mourning like a healthy cereal and lean protien at night like boneless skinless chicken. No eating within 4 hours before bed.

      GOOD LUCK

  19. QUESTION:
    (10points!)what can i change about my diet/lifestyle to lose weight? easy 10 points
    okay here's what i do:

    on a boring day
    i wake up around 3-5pm
    if i'm hungry i eat fresh veggies with light ranch but sometimes i don't eat until dinner time
    around 7-8 i eat dinner, it's usually grilled/roasted chicken with grilled veggies and rice
    after dinner i'd snack on more veggies throughout the night and just sit around and fall asleep at 4-7am

    on a weekend/slightly busy day
    i'd wake up from 12-2pm
    get ready and hang out
    when i'm out i don't eat meals but i snack on trail mix and water
    i usually get home from 11pm-1am and don't eat and just go to bed

    i'm obviously not very active but once every 1-2 weeks i go out jogging/hiking up a river for about 3 hours

    my goal is to lose 10 pounds in one month
    i'm not sure if i should eat more smaller meals or just eat one big meal a day and what exercises can i do to lose weight the fastest? and how many times should i do it?

    i'm 16 years old and 140 pounds.
    i attempt to drink a lot of water but i probably end up drinking 3-4 bottles a day

    • ANSWER:
      Check this site out to see if you should be concerned with losing weight: http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/

      What you should do is change your eating habit to a healthier one and start exercising (people tell you this over and over because it WORKS!).

      Disclaimer: I don't recommend any diet to you or anyone, but I just wanted to share my experience. You should talk to your nutritionist/doctor before making any drastic changes to your body.

      What I did was I went on an "eating-only-corn-flakes" diet. xD I lost the weight really quickly (~25 lbs). After a 2-3 weeks of eating only corn flakes breakfast/lunch/dinner (NO snacks whatsoever), I went off the diet and started eating normal, and healthy foods, with A LOT of water and tons of fruits. I'm able to keep off the weight I've lost for ~6 years now.

      Currently, I've been exercising. I have an "air-stepper" at home, and I get on it for 15 minutes each day to get my cardio workout. I take my pulse at 5 min. intervals for 15 minutes to see if I'm improving. ^_^ Then, I get on my Total Gym and start working on my arms and legs (pulling, pushing, etc.). To tone my abs, I do 200 crunches; they are much easier than sit-ups. ^_^ Lastly, I do 100 of those "standing-up" crunches. I don't know what to call them, but I saw it on Hip-Hop Abs. You can see a sample of it here: http://www.beachbody.com/product/fitness_programs/hip_hop_abs.do?code=HIPHOPABSDOTCOM

      The lay down crunches and the standing up crunches that I do gave me the flat stomach I have now. ^____^ Very happy with the results. You can do as many as your body can tollerate for ONE day and feel your stomach flatter immediately afterwards (at least for me)! It's incredible!

      If you do not have gym equipment, just jumping around and running place for 15-30 minutes will get you your cardio workout. Eat yougurt, fruits, and other health foods. Drink tons of water and your daily dosage of milk. ^_^

      Good luck! :D

  20. QUESTION:
    A diet that I can lose 10 kg in 25 days,don't care if it's unhealthy,I'll starve myself if I have to.PLZ HELP?
    I want to lose 10 kg in 25 days...I don't care if it's an unhealthy diet but I'll do anything to lose that much in 25 days....For god sake I'll starve myself if I have to....if anyone knows a diet that could work and help me lose that much please tell me about it! I'm sooo DESPERATE TO LOSE THAT MUCH IN 25 DAYS!!!! Even if you tried any crash diets and lost weight while on it...then please tell me about it......Thanks in advance

    • ANSWER:
      For God's sake, wow I didn't realize God had so much invested in our body weight.

      Forget the unhealthy part for a minute, you will set yourself up for a lifetime of weight and health issues, is one day so important it's worth blowing your whole life over ? If you answer yes, then you need mental health counseling, not diet couseling. Even in the short term this plan will back fire on you, your brain has quite an interest in your survival, it won't let you do this. It will stop you, and put you in a position to gain weight, it will burn muscle, leaving your metabolim even slower ( your weight issues will get worse) so even without being unhealthy, it's just unreaslitc and pretty much impossible. Start exercising, something enjoyable, even walking will do, and keep to a sensible diet, in 25 days you will feel better about yourself, you'll know your on the right path to life long health and all it's many rewards, you'll sleep better, have more energy, better digestion, moods, mental clarity, endurance, and yes eventually a body you'll love. There's no short cuts, that's an illusion, the only one your tricking is yourself.

  23. QUESTION:
    How much weight could I lose? 10 points best answer :) ?
    How much weight can I lose in 25 days? And how can I lose weight in 25 days? I'd like to bike instead of running, how long would I have to bike a day to lose weight. Diet? Exercise plan? Btw, I'm 14, female, 5,6", 140lbs. AND I want to tone my thighs, so that's why I'm biking instead of running. Please help.

    • ANSWER:
      Lol trying to lose fat for you 9th grade year? I'm going to 9th grade as well. I'm 14, 5'7" 157 Ibs, i'm going to start working out august 16th when school starts though, Here's my tips:

      Only drink white milk and water

      Cardio, like running, jump roping, ect

      ( If you want to work your thighs when your biking stand up on the peddles and go as fast as you can, you can feel the lactic acids being released as oxygen as oxygen cant supply your thighs fast enough, thats why we breathe heavily after cardio, because of the lactic acids that released and we need more oxygen.)

      Keep a good diet, if you have to eat school food, go with the salad and only eat the salad, dont eat the school chicken, and DONT get salad dressing!

      Remember to always choose white milk too!

      Keep your body clock in check, don't stay up after 10PM and don't wake up after 7AM, use an alarm clock to make sure your bodies clock is fine tuned.

      In 25 days last year I lost 3 Ibs, by the end of the summer I was 5'5" 142, but now i'm 5'7" 157 :( .

      Losing weight is a slow natural process if your not too fat, people over 400+Ibs have been known to lose 20+ Ibs in less than a week! But that's because their fat is like butter!

      Remember, water and milk this is probably the best advice I can give, water and milk!

      Taking Pre-Trig this year so i'll need all the help I can get, even if it's physical help from not falling asleep!

    Has anyone tried the 10 day water fasting diet to lose weight fast?

    • ANSWER:
      You mean skip solid food and drink only water or liquids?? When I had oral surgery done, I couldn't eat anything solid. All I had was milk, juices and Ensure for about two weeks. I lost about 10 pounds and felt very unhealthy and I couldn't wait to put the weight back. I think it's extremely unhealthy and I **strongly** advice against this type of so-called dieting. In my case it was cause I just couldn't have solids.

    In what way can I get results within 10 days to lose weight for prom? My prom dress go tighter?
    In what way can I get results within 10 days to lose weight for prom? My prom dress go tighter (i got thicker) and i only have 10 days until prom night! any suggestions, tips, diet tricks, workout plans? HELP!!

    • ANSWER:
      You do need to eat, but don't eat as much. Eat small portions. Eat slowly because it takes 15 minutes after you really are full before your brain realizes it. Don't keep eating after you are full, it stretches your stomach so that next time you eat you have to eat more before you feel full. Try eating carrots or celery for snacking. Stay away from soda even diet soda. Drink water. Be active.

      The only way to loose weight is to not eat as much. When you are hungry and you don't eat then your body will start eating the fat from your body to get get energy.

      Im not suggesting starving yourself, but choose healthier foods like raw vegetables (don't eat ranch with them, ranch is very fattening) or fruits. Natural foods instead of processed.

  27. QUESTION:
    I need to lose a little more weight in 10 days and stay off it. What is the best advice?
    I am leaving for vacation and I have been trying to eat healthy (except today when I overate and had so much junk food! UGH!) and exercise. What is the best BEST way to keep in CONTROL for the next 10 days? Diets obviously don't work. Should I just eat healthy and work out until I leave? It's so hard to be in control and stay OFF the weight once I lose it.

    • ANSWER:
      Weight loss is an overall process and there are no magic answers. Pay no attention to weight loss supplements and pills and all the latest fads. You need to think about many factors but most of them are related to issues we've known about for a very long time. There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me.

      Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why.

      Make a few additional small changes - walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars.

      Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can't get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one.

      In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.

      Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate - in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don't. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies.

      Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day.

      Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day.

      Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body.

      Vary your routines. Don't eat the same number of calories every day (vary your calories from 1400 a day to 1900 or 2000 some days), eat a variety of foods, and do different kinds and amounts of exercise. You will lose weight much more efficiently if you mix things up from time to time so that your body doesn't adjust to any one routine.

      An area that many people overlook is getting enough sleep. You are much more likely to overeat or to binge eat if you are tired and not well rested, so get enough sleep.

      Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc.

  30. QUESTION:
    How much weight would the average person on a vegetarian diet lose in a month by walking 10 miles per day?
    I just saw the Fat March finale and I'm motivated! I'm a 5'7'' 220 male. I used to be 230 but I became a vegetarian 2 months ago and I've lost 10 lbs.

    • ANSWER:
      Even fruits & veggies have calories so it sort of depends on how often and how much you eat them. Nice job on your efforts to trim down. Good luck, your on the right track.

  31. QUESTION:
    Has anyone done the "lose 10 pounds in 3 days diet"?
    I am really not expecting to lose 10 pounds in 3 days. I would just like to see how much it actually could work.
    I guess you can maintain the diet by 3 days on 4 days off?
    Has anyone tried this diet? Any side effects? Did you actually lose any weight?

    • ANSWER:
      My mom got it from her doctor years ago and she lost about 40 pounds in 4 months. I went on it last year and went down a dress size in about 2 months.

      It's funny you wrote this, because I started the diet again yesterday. It works for me!! Not as well as it says, but it is good anyways. I also substitute some of the things. For instance, I don't eat hot dogs, so I substitute chicken or pork skewers.

      Only side effects are craving chocolate, but I had that problem before. ;)

      Something I mix in is the 3-Apple-a-Day-Plan on my four days off. This is simply adding three apples a day to what you normally would eat (curbs cravings and makes you feel fuller..).

      The four days off really helps you stick to the plan knowing it is only three days.

      Good luck!!

  32. QUESTION:
    If you had a strict diet but still lifted weights, would you gain muscle mass or lose weight?
    i would do full body workouts 3 days a week, my abs 6 days a week, and cardio 6 days a week. My goal is to lose weight, about 10-20 pounds. im on a strict diet also, so would i lose weight or gain weight?

    • ANSWER:
      the only way to gain muscle mass is use both progressively higher and higher training loads AND to have an extended caloric excess in the diet. muscles do not simply grow from lifting weights there has to be a caloric excess in the diet with sufficient nutrients to promote anabolism in the muscle cell..

  33. QUESTION:
    What is the best diet to go on to lose weight but not starve to death?
    I'm looking to go on a diet to lose between 10-15 lbs. I sit in a cube for 9 hours a day, so it's easy for me to be a snacker. I need to find a diet that will still allow me to eat healthily while I'm losing the weight. I know that the Atkins Diet is popular but, I heard that it can also be damaging to your health if you cut out all carbs. I also want to stay away from "crash dieting." I want something that I can stick with years down the road. Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      Low Carb Dieting Tip
      Your rate of metabolism dictates how many calories you burn. Heredity, gender, age, body size. diet and nutrition, activity level, and your overall health factor in on determining how high or low your metabolism is. It is normal for metabolism levels to lower as a person ages. Because of this it is important to begin stepping up your exercise routines in your thirties and forties.

      Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

      Eat Regularly - Eating 5-6 small meals throughout the day will give you energy throughout the day--helping you to burn calories. Whereas, calories eaten during larger meals tend to get stored as fat.
      Maintain a Balanced Diet - Not only how often you eat is important, but your food choices are equally as important. Nurture you body with the appropriate balance of protein and carbs.

      Eating whole foods rather than processed food gives your digestive system a workout that burns calories. For example: choose an apple over apple juice.
      Workout with Weights - Building muscle mass will replace stored fat. As you build muscle tissue your metabolism increases.
      Don't Forget Cardio - You need to get that heart rate up and breathe a little heavier. Twenty to thirty minutes of cardiovascular activity 5 days a week is recommended. Brisk walking or swimming are good. Or utilize exercise equipment (exercise bike, treadmill, or elliptical trainer)
      Fruits and vegetables are clearly an important part of a good diet. Almost everyone can benefit from eating more of them, but variety is as important as quantity. No single fruit or vegetable provides all of the nutrients you need to be healthy. The key lies in the variety of different fruits and vegetables that you eat.
      Some basic fruit and vegetable tips:
      •Try to eat more fruits and vegetables. If you need 2,000 calories a day to maintain your weight and health, aim for at least nine servings (4½ cups) a day.
      •Choose a variety of different fruits and vegetables. It's easy to get into a rut when it comes to the food you eat. Break out and try a wider variety - include dark-green, leafy vegetables; yellow, orange, and red fruits and vegetables; cooked tomatoes; and citrus fruits.

  34. QUESTION:
    Lose weight in 10 days?
    Hello! I want to go on a diet. I have about 10 days to lose weight. I want to do it in a healthy way though. I don't want to starve myself. I am willing to exercise and eat foods (within reason). Can anyone help me out with a diet plan that will help me loose a few pounds in 10 days? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Sweetheart, This is how I did it and this is the same thing i told everyone who asked me "how" I did it. Take my advice and your weight loss will be noticeable. Start off eating 4 times a day and eat small portions. I'll give you a diet plan. You can eat ANYTHING YOU WANT, as long as you have very small portions. DON'T EAT DEEP FRIED FOODS, NO SODA'S OR JUICES. You're only allowed to drink WATER or Unsweetened Iced Tea. Pick one of the followings to eat everyday and after you lose weight you can message me saying thanks.

      Breakfast: 8:00 AM
      2 eggs one slice of toast (wheat)
      or
      A bowl of oatmeal
      or
      A bowl of cereal (preferably Special K)

      Snack: 12:00 PM
      Any fruit
      Either a Peach or an Apple

      Lunch: 2:00 PM
      Anything that can fit in one of your hands.
      You can eat a 6" sandwich or a salad.
      You can eat anything, just don't eat sides such as fries.
      Rice is ok if you're not eating bread. Eat anything as long as it fits in a small tupperwear the size of your hand.

      Dinner: 6 PM
      Same as lunch you can eat anything as long as it's not too much.

      The first 2 days it's going to be really hard, you're going to be really hungry since you cut down your food intake... But no worries, your buddy will adjust. It's important that you eat EVERY 4 HOURS! If you skip a meal you might over eat. This is also a good schedule because you will wake up hungry and eat breakfast. STAY AWAY from SODA'S, JUICES AND DEEP FRIED FOODS!!!!!!

      It's all about eating small. I used to eat a foot long, chips and a Coke for lunch, now I only have a 6" and an Iced Tea.

      THE BEST PART IS YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORK OUT!!!!! I strongly recommend not to work out because working out causes you to burn energy and work up an appetite. We don't want that. We want you to have a small appetite. Keep it up, don't quit and you will lose weight. I'm telling you this from personal experience... I gave the same diet to my friends and it worked for them too. It's all about your food intake. I wish you the best and GOOD LUCK!!!

  35. QUESTION:
    How much weight could be lost on a 10 day "Master cleanse" diet?
    How much weight could be lost on a 10 day Master cleanse diet for someone who weights 80 kg/176lbs. I asked the same question for a water fast (drinking only water).
    My goal is to cleanse/detox my body and lose weight (fat and water, since you rarely lose fat without water weight).

    Thanks ahead.

    • ANSWER:
      your body needs neither cleansing nor detoxing, and fasting will make you put on weight even faster as soon as you stop. Of course if you don't stop fasting you will die. 'water weight' is nonsense.

      no 'cleanses', no 'water fasts', no pills, quack remedies, magic spells. If you actually want to be thinner, you need to eat less, eat healthily and move more. There are no quick fixes but there are a lot of scams and a lot of ways to make things worse.

      think how you got like this - what do you eat? How much exercise do you do? Do you use quack remedies?

      you know what you have to do.

    • ANSWER:

  40. QUESTION:
    Looking for a winter weight lose diet plan for a 40ish woman who just stopped her cycle in the last year?
    Have to lose 10 pounds by New Years Day.I also live in Florida.
    I ama sub teacher and walk everyday for 30 minutes plus help mother with landscape gardening whenever I can (lifting mulch bags in and out, filling and hauling out heavy garden waste bags, , and walking the dog on weekends as my exercise.Can you I do it with just amount of exercise?

    • ANSWER:
      You're getting a late start to lose 10 lbs in less than a month.

      For the rest of the month, you will need to cut out all processed foods and cut way back on sugar, red meat and eggs. No candy/egg nog, pie, cookies at all. Eat salads, fruit, veggies and other high fiber foods - for protien, fish and chicken. No shell fish including shrimp.

      Then you will need to exercise at least 2.5 hours every day -- half cardio and half weights in order to burn calories.

      Fact is you should have started a month ago.

      reply to your edit... I don't think the amount of exercise you get in is sufficient to lose weight -- you need to be burning calories -- 30 minutes a day walking is great for maintenance, but it's not a big calorie burn, and neither is intermittent gardening or walking the dog on weekends.

      If you walk 2 miles a day at a walking speed of 3.2 miles an hour you burn about 180 calories. That's not a lot. Your stated goal was to drop 10 lbs in less than a month, so you have to work harder to get your metabolism reved up and burning the calories... that is what the combo of both cardio and weight work do. You can do fad diets, but usually the weight comes back and then some.

  41. QUESTION:
    Does diet coke help you lose weight?
    So for a couple of months all i been drinking is diet coke. One day i was sick with a fever so i went to the doctors they put me on the scale for my weight and i lost 10 pounds. Is this because of the diet coke? People say diet coke makes them hungry but it's opposite for me. Everytime i drink it i crave for more. So did i lose this weight from the diet coke? Or did my body just decide to drop a couple of pounds?

    • ANSWER:
      No. Diet Coke can make you gain more weight than regular soda, since it contains aspartame, which studies have linked to obesity.

      http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2005/06/30/diet-sodas.aspx

      If you're trying to lose weight, don't drink any soda, PERIOD.

  42. QUESTION:

    Im 20 yrs old and 145lbs and trying to lose 10 pounds in a month. Will this, with increasing my walking by 45 mins a day, help me to do this?

    • ANSWER:
      sounds a bit on the skimpy side. maybe add some nuts in for protein at least. 10 pounds in a month is quite a goal. you should really try to stick to losing 1-2 pounds a week. especially since you are only 145 to begin with. good luck!

  43. QUESTION:
    How do I lose weight by diet and exercise?
    I'm 13 and I'm 5'6" 1/2 and I weigh 130 pounds. I'd like to lose 10-15 pounds. What do I need to do? I'd love to lose weight off of my legs and thighs. But I need some food suggestions and exercising suggestions. I also need to work on getting a flatter stomach. How many crutches should I do a day?

    • ANSWER:
      Well i was going to give you some suggestions as to how to loose weight, but for your age your weight sounds about right to me . What is your B.M.I.? To improve your stomach , crunches do little , jogging or hard power walking, swimming reasonable distance in a pool, say around 1000m . The key however is to do medium to heavy exercise at least 3 times a day, for at least 30mins per session, i did 3x1hour sessions per day over 10weeks lost 26kilos...............dieting ....well reduce carbs increase protien........but remember as you are so young your body is still developing and growing , so over time many kids seem to stretch out and and the puppy fat disappears. Hope this helps.

  44. QUESTION:
    Please tell me some diet or trick to lose weight untill 10.8!?
    I want to lose 8 pounds untill 10.8.I have 63 kg now.With how much will i look hot?I'm 1.70 m tall.I drink chinesse tea every day 1.5 l,every morning before breakfast and before i go to bed i drink cinnamon and honey tea,I dance (modern balet),I drink water and i eat healthy food.But it doesn't work.Please tell me something!!!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      first of all.....how old are you? I know a couple older women that were ballet dancers and always had to crash diet in order to lose weight...not a good idea for you to do because they totally messed up their metabolisms and now they're both extremely obese women in their 40's (i'm talking 300slbs plus)!!!!! My advice to you is to make sure you're eating the proper amount of calories a day (at least 1600!) cuz if you cut out the calories you will sloooow your metabolism which will actually make it harder to lose weight. (happens often) so eat 6 small meals throughout the day, never skip breakfast (gets metabolism going), healthy protein, lots of veggies, whole wheat/grains, small amounts of fruit and fat. (fruit because its naturally high in sugar) try to not eat anything past 8pm and boost your cardio.... I know you do Ballet but do you ever get your heartrate up a little higher? run or jumprope in the morning....

      If this doesn't work then go get your thyroid checked!

      what are your stats? hgt, wgt, age, etc? hope this helps

  45. QUESTION:
    How much weight can I lose in 10 days?
    We are leaving for the beach in 10 days. I know that fad diets don't work... but I'm down to the wire now. Realistically how much can I lose in 10 days? And what diet/exercise plan should I do?

    Keep in mind, I have 3 kids, so while going on walks/runs is doable... going to the gym is not.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      The most healthy and realistically is about 2-3 lbs.

      It also depends on just how much you are over your ideal weight. Usually people who need to loose 50+ lbs may loose up to 8 lbs. a week for the first couple of weeks. Then the weight loss tapers off.

  46. QUESTION:
    What is a doable diet that will help me lose 10 pounds in a month?

    I need a good diet, including what and when I should eat, that will help me achieve my goal! I go for a run for 30 minutes everyday, and thats pretty much my exercise for the day

    Thank you so much! 10 points for best answer :)

  47. QUESTION:
    How long and often should i ride my bike to effectively lose weight along with diet? I would love to lose 5-10
    Pounds a week if possible

    Diet is: Apple Cider Vinegar Pills 3x day;

    Orange Juice/Skim Milk Smooth throughtout the day or Apple Juice and Water, Celebrity Fasting or Slim Fast Shakes

    Prepackaged Microwave Dinner a Day (Lean Cusine, Stouffers, Michelinas, Budget Gourmet, Banquet, South Beach Diet Meals, or Spanich Turkey Bacon Wrap from Sub Shop

    One Sweetcake a Day (breakfast bar, granola bar, two small cookies, fruit and grain bar)

    One Small Bags of Salty/Crunchy Treat a Day (goldfish crackers, baked Doritios or Cheetos, light popcorn)
    64oz. of Ic Cold Water

    • ANSWER:
      For your bike riding do three different techniques on different days of the week.
      1. Ride at an average pace for 45-60 minutes, this will burn up calories and body fat.
      2. Ride at a fast pace for 30-45 minutes, this will jack up your metabolism for a couple hours.
      3. This is the best one, it is called HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training).
      Ride for 5 minutes very hard and then 5 minutes easy, repeat this sequence for only 20-30 minutes, but do it twice in one day, (4-6 hours apart) It will jack up your metabolism the most.
      However you should only use this technique 2 times a week.
      Ride 5 times a week, bouncing back and forth from these 3 techniques.
      As for your diet, I am sorry, but it is horrible, you are getting way too many carbs and not enough protein.
      Baked snacks will still cause an insulin response, and shuttle all those carbs into your liver, to transform into fatty acids and then be stored as bodyfat.
      Eat some more protein, and stay away from foods that come in a box or bag. Good Luck

  48. QUESTION:
    calories in diet to lose weight?
    I am 5'5" and I weigh 135 pounds now and 15 years old. I exercise 2-4 times a week for 60 minutes (usually jogging or a light run, biking [low intensity], or elliptical) I want to lose about 10 pounds. I usually eat 1200-1500 calories per day. How many calories should I cut from my diet if I want to lose the weight?

    • ANSWER:
      From what i have learned calories is not really the problem.. what causes most in not all people to gain weight or have problems from getting the weight off, even when working out is the amount of salt that is in the food. That is a hidden enemy as well as sugar consumption...

10 Day Weight Loss Program

ANYONE TRYING TO LOSE FAT NEEDS TO CONTROL THEIR BLOOD SUGAR

If your blood sugar is high, our body produces insulin. Insulin signals the body to store fat. This extra insulin quickly causes the blood sugar to drop from an extreme high to an extreme low. This low blood sugar causes us to be hungry, have cravings and be extremely fatigued.While we all need a certain amount of insulin in our systems, many people are releasing way too much insulin. This makes it virtually impossible to lose weight.

FIND OUT WHICH FOODS ARE CAUSING THIS BLOOD SUGAR ROLLER COASTER

Not all carbohydrates are created equal, some may be doing more harm than good. There are certain carbs that will NOT help you burn fat. Bread, pasta, cereals, crackers, low fat muffins even the "whole wheat" type will all quickly turn into sugar putting you into that fat storing mode.

Which carbs can I eat that WILL let me burn fat? Breads made from sprouted grains like rice will easily fit into your fat burning meal plan and are very tasty too. Millet and Quinoa Rice are delicious or sweet potatoes with a little butter and cinnamin taste great and you can still burn tons of fat.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO LOSE FAT WITHOUT EATING FAT

If you do not know which kinds of fat you should be eating, burning fat will be impossible. It is NOT fat that is making us fat. When you give your body the RIGHT kind of fat, it actually increases the metabolic process to burn off our unwanted fat. Eat the right kind of fat and you will burn fat. Eat the wrong kind of fat and you will store fat.

  3. QUESTION:
    Joke...Weight Loss Program?
    A fellow is ordered by his doctor to lose a minimum of 75 pounds because of the serious health risks involved with being so overweight. Baffled as to how on earth he was ever going to be able to accomplish this, he runs across an ad in the newspaper for a 'Guaranteed Weight Loss Program'.

    Skeptical, but desperate, he calls them and subscribes to the 3 day/10 lb weight loss program.

    The next day there's a knock on his door and when he answers it, standing before him is a a voluptuous, athletic, beautiful, 20 year old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes, and a sign around her neck.

    After they finish, she leaves and he thinks to himself, "I really like the way this company does business!" For the next two days, the same girl shows up and the same thing happens. On the fouth day, he weighs himself and is thrilled to find he has lost 10 lbs as promised.

    So, he calls the company and subscribes to their 5 day/20 lb program.

    Does 10,000 steps a day program really work for fitness and weight loss?

    • ANSWER:
      You would be amazed at how much you have to walk to get 10,000 steps a day! I have to take extra time out to go for a walk of at least 30 mins to get it all in! So just by doing that, I am staying fit. I also do alot of other things to stay slim.

  12. QUESTION:
    weight loss...funny or not???
    A fellow was reading the paper one day lamenting the fact that his
    doctor has ordered him to lose 75 pounds. Next thing he sees is an
    advertisement for a guaranteed weight loss program. Guaranteed like
    heck, he thinks to himself. But lets see what they think they can do.
    He calls them on the phone and subscribes to the 3 day, 10 LB weight
    loss program.
    The next day there comes a knock at his door, and when he answers,
    there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic 19 year old babe
    dressed in nothing but a pair of Nikes and a sign hanging around her
    neck. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss
    company. The sign reads, If you can catch me, you can have me. Well,
    without a second thought he takes off after her (like who wouldn't).
    A few miles later, huffing and puffing, he finally catches her and has
    his way with her. After they are through he kisses the girl one last
    time and thinks to himself with a nod, I like the way this company
    does business.
    For the next two days, the same girl shows up and the same thing
    happens each time. On the fourth day, he weighs himself and, sure
    enough, he has lost 10 pounds. Deciding that he likes his somewhat
    more slender physique, not to mention the method of treatment, he
    calls the company back and subscribes to their 5 day, 20 LB weight
    loss program. He thinks that losing 20 pounds in only 5 days seems
    like a lot, but he is intrigued by what their workout schedule might
    be like this time.
    As expected, the next day there comes a knock at his door. When he
    answers it there stands a 22 year old knockout dressed in nothing but
    a pair of Reeboks and a sign hanging around her neck. She is simply
    stunning, the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. She introduces
    herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign
    reads, If you can catch me, you can have me. He's out the door like a
    shot. This gal is in excellent shape and it takes a while to catch
    her. But when he does, it is worth every cramp and wheeze. She is
    wonderful, the best he has ever had. He is really looking forward to
    the next four days... For the next four days, the same girl shows up
    and the same thing happens each time, much to his delight. On the
    sixth day, he weighs himself and, unbelievably, he has lost another 20
    pounds. I love this company, he thinks to himself, I never knew
    losing weight could be so easy and so much fun.
    Feeling much better about himself, he decides to go for broke and
    subscribe to the companies 7 day, 50 pound weight loss program. Are
    you sure, sir? asks the representative on the phone. This is our most
    rigorous program. Absolutely, says he, I love your program. haven't
    felt this good in years! The next day there comes a knock at his
    door and he enthusiastically answers it. There stands before him a 200
    pound perfect specimen of a man dressed in nothing but racing spikes
    and a sign around his neck. He introduces himself as a representative
    of the weight loss company.
    The sign reads, If I can catch you, I can have you.

    Best weight loss program
    An overweight man received an e-mail advertising a program guaranteeing 10lb weight loss over 3 days. He was skeptical but had nothing to lose, so he sent his information back and signed up. A week later, he hears a knock at the door, and a beautiful 20 year old voluptuous redhead answers, wearing nothing but running shoes. She explains she is a representative of the weight loss company, and says, "If you catch me, you can have me!" Immediately, the man starts chasing her. After quite a bit of huffing and puffing, he finally manages to catch her and has his way. The woman appears each day for three days, with the same result. Then, the man weighs himself and finds he has indeed lost 10 pounds.

    He is enthused, so decides to sign up for the 5 day 20 lb weight loss program. The next day, a very athletic blond appears at the door, wearing nothing but running shoes. She explains who she is, and says, "If you catch me, you can have me!" Again the man chases. The athletic woman gives him a great run for his money, being in excellent shape, but again he catches her to have his way. After 5 days of the routine, the man weighs himself again and finds he has indeed lost 20 more pounds.

    He is delighted and calls the company to ask for their maximum program...lose 50 lbs in 10 days. "Are you sure, sir?" the rep asks. "This is the most intense program we sell." "Of course!" the man replies. "Your program really works great and I haven't felt so good in years!"

    A few days later, the man hears a knock at the door, and opens it to find a huge, burly, hairy, menacing man standing there. He explains he is a representative of the weight loss company and tells him, "If I catch you, your a** is mine!"

  21. QUESTION:
    Is this a good weight loss program?
    I am 15, 65kg (my doctor says I should weigh 57kg) and I am currently on Weight Watchers, eating a healthy diet of 28 points a day.

    This is my exercise program:

    Monday: 1 hr at Gym - 30 mins of speed and incline intervals on treadmill, 20 mins whole body resistance, 10 mins random bike program.
    Tuesday: 1 hr Yoga class.
    Wednesday: 1 hr personal training.
    Thursay: 1 hr swimming program.
    Friday: 1 hr Gym - same as Monday.
    Saturday: day off.
    Sunday: 30 - 60 mins beach walk.

    I also attend a very large school and walk A LOT of steps in a day.
    So is this program good for weight loss?

  23. QUESTION:
    How much weight can I expect to lose from a 10-day master cleanse program?
    I weigh 155 lbs, 19years old 5'11"…I'm definitely slightly underweight but I'm very athletic and workout quite a bit so I'm not mal nutritioned or anything I'm infact very healthy. I want to do the master cleanse for a few reasons, 1) to slow down my eating/lessen my eating/get into better eating habits and 2) to cleanse my colon, It's one of the healthiest things you can do. BUT I don't want to lose too much weight…10+ days without eating will certainly cause weight loss…im guessing about 15-20lbs, how easy will it be to gain it back?….I've seen people do 40day Fasts and lose a shit ton of weight but gain it back fairly quick, just wondering and hoping for your good comments :)
    Matthew please don't comment on what you don't know. Not everything is a scam. The Master cleanse program is very cheap…its just lemons and maple syrup basically. Don't tell me it's a scam and I will only lose 4lbs because It isn't…it's not something someone is selling for 100$ to make a quick buck it's something someone made up and it worked, so they shared it with the world. FOR FREE. I know people who have done it and have had amazing results. My simple question is how long will it take to regain the weight loss and is it safe for me to be doing it because Im only 155lbs
    I don't believe someone could do a 10 day master cleanse program if they were lazy…its not eating. A lazy person would die.

    A quick weight loss program?
    Spring break is coming up, and I really want to lose some weight (10-20 pounds) before it is over. Does anyone have any advice on how to do that in 10 days?

    • ANSWER:

  25. QUESTION:
    Guaranteed weight loss.?
    A man was ordered by his doctor to lose 4 stones as soon as possible due to very serious health risks.
    As he wondered how he would ever do it, he saw an ad in the newspaper for a GUARANTEED WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMME.
    "Guaranteed. Yeah right!" he thought to himself. But desperate, he calls
    and subscribes to the 3-day / 10 pound weight loss programme.
    The next day there's a knock at his door, and when he answers, there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 19-year-old young lady dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign round her neck.
    She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The
    sign reads, "If you can catch me, you can have me!"
    Without a second thought he takes off after her. A few miles later, huffing and puffing, he finally catches her and has his way with her.
    After they are through and she leaves, he thinks to himself, "I like the way this company does business!" The same girl shows up for the next two days and the same thing happens.
    On the fourth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 10 lb as promised. He calls the company and orders their 5- day / 20 pound programme.
    The next day there's a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life, wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads, "If you catch me, you can have me."
    He's out the door or after her like a shot. This girl is in excellent shape and it takes him a while to catch her, but when he does, it is worth every cramp and wheeze. For the next four days, the same routine happens.
    Much to his delight, on the fifth day, he weighs himself and found he has lost another 20 lbs, as promised.
    He decides to go for broke and calls the company to order the 7-day / 50 pound programme.
    "Are you sure?" asks the representative on the phone.
    "This is our most rigorous programme."
    "Absolutely," he replies, "I haven't felt this good in years."
    The next day there's a knock at the door and when he opens it he finds a
    muscular guy standing there wearing nothing but pink running shoes and a
    sign around his neck that reads, "If I catch you, you're mine."

    weight loss and weight lifting program need help fast.?
    ok so i am 14 5'7 and 164 pounds and i really need a weight loss program and lifting program i have 100 pound weight set that brings a barbell and dumbbells i also got resistence bands. i heard that cardio is a bad thing to do because you wont get result but interval training or something like that works i know you are suppose to to low intensity stuff then high intensity stuff. so i need to put that in my program. really want to lose weight and with my diet i already know what i need to know. i also want to gain muscle at the same time because i play baseball and i need to get strong. i am not that fat i am a little chubby but all i want to lose is about 10-15 pounds in 1 and a half month. i am also playing baseball every other day for 3 hours so i am getting some exercise there. i have no problem running but i would rather have myself run inside my house and do stuff like suicide and stuff like that it helps me in baseball to so plz help. i can work out 7 days for about 2 hours

    • ANSWER:
      You're on the right track as far as what you're doing - 165 isn't too bad, either! If this is for a school sport, check with your coach and see if there are minimum requirements for your sport as far as body fat is concerned - my brother is a track & field coach, and his kids have to be over a certain percentage to compete..

      Weight loss takes time, if it's done properly. There isn't anything wrong with doing cardio - you need to do it if you're going to be a good athlete. If you're practicing as hard as you need to be, then weight lifting for general strength should be fine. Try and duplicate the running exercises that you do for baseball, too, so you can keep that up. Make sure you're eating healthy things, lots of protein if you're lifting..

  28. QUESTION:
    Odd weight loss program?
    Someone I know wants to start some odd "weight loss plan" that involves going to a an actual physician, getting a physical, then receiving B vitamin injections, amino acid injections, and appetite suppressants, and put her on a high protein no carb diet for 10 days. She says her friend already lost 20 pounds on this diet program... thingy.

    It is supposedly closely monitored by an actual doctor by I am suspicious as hell about this, mostly because I know 2 people who did something similar and are now doing it again because they gained back all the weight they lost. Not to mention they were vomiting every other day while they were doing it.

    Now is there is any merit to this thing or is it just another type of scam, expensive, fad diet not worth a d*mn?

    And if it is worthless, what are some good scientific rational ways of explaining this to my friend instead of just yelling like a lunatic?

    • ANSWER:
      Diets are a pseudoscience unto itself that even the Alties don't accept. Diets do work to an extent - when you restrict a form of food, you are actually restricting calories and you will lose weight, but as soon as the diet is over, the food you were restricted from returns and the calories return with it so the weight goes right back on, that's why it takes a lifestyle change, not a diet. The formula is really simple and doesn't take a book to figure out - burn more calories than you consume and you'll lose weight, in other words... exercise more, eat less, repeat.

  29. QUESTION:
    Is there any weight loss program that truly helps (ie.: Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, etc.)?
    I need to lose about 10-15 lbs. and right now I am not capable of doing it by myself for one reason or another. I know mostly everything I need to do (exercise) and eat, but am just not motivated enough and cannot exercise due to back problems that should hopefully be solved soon. The sweet cravings and carb cravings are killing me, besides putting on the pounds as each day passes, my goal was to be thin last summer. Fat chance for this one if I keep up the pace I have picked up. I was thinking of a weight loss program, does anybody have any experience to share about the results? Please help!
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, so I have been struggling with my weight for a long time. Finally I decided to cough up the money and join weight watchers. (BTW, I don’t have a lot of money).

      So its about per week, and I gave up junk food so I’m saving about per week. (just a thought)

      I lost 12 lbs starting december 15 so on average, I have lost about 1.7 lbs per week. It’s a lot of food, I am never hungry and I have a huge variety of food to choose from.

      I gave you all the information that you could, now its your decision. )

  30. QUESTION:
    How can I find a weight loss program that works for me?
    I'm currently about 5'8" and 120 pounds give or take 3 pounds.
    I'm sixteen years old, I have a good amount of muscle mass and I'm pretty athletic. I don't want to hear anything about how losing weight is a bad idea. I know that I can be healthy and weigh 110, which is my goal.
    I realize that it's not important what I weigh, it's important how much muscle I have compared to how much fat I have. I do know that I haven't gained much muscle mass since I weighed 110. So, the 10 pounds I gained is mostly fat.

    So, I want to lose 10 pounds in 3 months.

    Most weight loss plans target people with a significant amount of fat and 10 pounds is only scratching the surface. I want something that will work for someone my age, my build, and with a few basic requirements.

    1. I do not eat meat. I need a lot of foods that are high in protein. I also need more iron. I don't have a lot of either in my current diet.
    2. As a general rule, I run 2 miles per day. It's getting cold out, though, and I don't have a local gym I can run in. I need other exercises, aerobic and anaerobic that I can be doing indoors. Anyone have any good ideas, share them?
    3. I don't have a lot of money for food right now. I need foods that aren't expensive. That means none of these, "all organic" diets or any of that.
    4. I don't like many fruits. I can down them if it's a must, but I'd rather avoid eating more than absolutely necessary.

    Has anyone been in a similar situation?
    Tips are helpful. References. Names of popular diets that you hear work. Anything helps.

    Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      Well your weight is normal, dont expect to lose 10 pounds of fat, because most of your weight is water anyways.

      But if you still expect to lose some weight:
      1. For protein, there are several foods that have it. Milk, nuts, beans, and certain vegetables have lots of protein. I recommend milk or something with soybeans. I DONT recommend nuts, because they have salt and oil, you can, but I dont recommend.

      2. Squats are a good way to burn off energy, and if you dont know that, wall squats are okay, so are toe lifts, push ups, sit ups, and walking around doing house chores burns off a little bit of energy as well

      3. Then milk, and site for vegies with protein:
      http://www.weightlossforall.com/protein-vegetable.htm
      Ask your parents to buy some, and you can learn to prepare them yourself.

      4. Or fruit:
      http://www.annecollins.com/protein_diet/protein-fruit.htm
      Not necessary, but it might be a good idea to eat one or 2, they can also have a lot of nutrients that would help give energy

  31. QUESTION:
    Weight loss question; why do some lose quicker and more than others?
    My wife and I have been following a points weight loss program like Weight Watchers but not their actual system. It's slightly different because we are following the "Wendie" plan. Basically we stay within the points range set down for our weight but vary it from day to day. Some days are very low, at the bottom of the range. Others are high, at the upper range. One day a week is very high, about 10 points over the high point range. Overall we stay about 10 points under the total points alotted for a single week. We have been on the plan since June 18th and other than an additional point here or there we have both been true to the points plan. The problem is that I have lost 19-1/2 pounds and she lost only 4. We both work out but in different ways. She does much more cadio i.e. biking, riding a Gazelle machine, and walking/ running with the kids. I do very little cadio, 60 to 90 minutes a week, work out with weights and sit in a steam room.
    Why am I having so much more success?

    • ANSWER:
      Metobolism buddy.
      I'm a bodybuilder & see it in gym's all the time. A couple go in & the guy does his workout and is on the cardio equip while the girl is stll doing some light weights. Then the guy usually gets his shower & talks while the girl spends at lease 20 more min's than him on cardio. So it's no ones fault really. Guys tend to lose quicker as our metobolism is quicker & higher. We do work and workout at a higher intensity level than women.

  32. QUESTION:
    is this a healthy weight loss program?

    so far i've lost about 15 lbs, but what will happen to my muscle? should i eat more if i want to gain the muscle or is this amount of calories ok?

  33. QUESTION:
    Healthy Weight Loss? 10 pounds in 60 days healthy?
    I have been fighting my weight ever since the birth of my daughter a year and a half ago. About 3 months ago I got pretty serious about winning the war and altered by diet and did a full 90 days of p90x. I feel much better and dropped two sizes, but I really only dropped 12lbs (I was really hoping to lose about double that). I am maintaining my altered diet and have just started Insanity; a different work out program. Is losing 10 lbs in 60 days realistic or I should I alter my expectations. I am not interested in any fade diets, weight loss pills, or other gimmicky items. I am 5'3" inches tall and currently weigh 141 lbs.

    • ANSWER:
      Read the book "Forks Over Knives" or order the DVD.

      A whole plant based diet allowed me to lose 80+ pounds without much effort. The nutritionally rich diet also makes you feel better than you have in years.

      Get the scientifically substantiated facts, don't buy into the commonly accepted "factoids" that are largely the result of food industry spin.

  34. QUESTION:
    Weight loss program 1 on 1?
    I'm going to pour out a lot so bare with me please.

    I am 16 years old, 5'5", I am stout, I have about 140 lb of body+muscle but I have about 40 more lbs of fat. It's mainly around my midsection,chest,butt,and thighs. I don't have much face or arm fat but I look decent since i've learned to suck everything in 24/7 (Not something I like to do). I'm fit. I just don't look it and when I don't look it, I don't feel it.
    I've tried so many things over summers and school. I have tried not eating. I lost some pounds but was tired and fatigued so I went into a all veggy and fish diet. I lost some but soon regained it after I became overwhelmingly tired of eating that over and over again. I've tried for many years to lose the weight I gained once I moved to the U.S. I was a really skinny kid and I moved here at about 5-6 and I became very chunky by 8 years.
    The only time I did something that worked was one summer I went to the gym every day for 3 hours. But I ate so much! I could've eaten a horse everyday! I lost about 20 lbs or so of fat and gained about 10 of muscle, but that didn't last. I started school again and gained all the fat back and the muscle stayed so now I feel fatter because I weight more...
    Last detail. The best way for me to be consistent is to not have any other choices but to do what I need to do and to have an instructor 1 on 1.

    Finally:
    MY QUESTION IS!

    Is there any program around phoenix AZ or this area where I can stay at a facility or a place where I am forced to abide by the eating habits of a trainer and all I do is exercise with a trainer 1 on 1?
    Kind of like the biggest loser but 1 on 1 with a trainer during the summer.
    Cost can be worked out later.

    Thank you for reading this if you did and I thank you in advance for your help. Although i'm not in the worst case I need to clear my mind to get at least one problem out of the way (Which has probably been my biggest insecurity).

    :)
    I'm not vegetarian but I am a member of seventh day adventist community. I have tried vegan and what not but it just doesn't work. I will be going off the red meats and junk food today to start but going further than that in one jump is too much. I need to be away from everything and have someone push me from behind to keep me going forward. If I am at home there is no way I can keep that up. I've tried and tried but being at home and doing it myself hasen't worked :/

    • ANSWER:

  35. QUESTION:
    Help me create a weight loss program...?
    Heylo there.

    So yeeah, I'm looking to lose some weight. I'm not that heavy or anything, just a bit more than I want. But I really know nothing about diets, so I call upon the people of Yahoo Answers!

    Here's the thing though: I'm 14. I'd really prefer not to screw over my developing body, so that means no crazy crash diets or anything, and probably it just helps you to know my age anyways.

    So yeah, I don't see any glaring flaws in my intake. I usually have Post Shredded Wheat for breakfast, no sugar/topping or anything. That's not even a new thing I put in to lose weight, I just like the taste of it anyway compared to like Trix and whatnot which is kind of disgusting. I think we have 2% fat milk at my house usually... anyway. I only drink water, besides milk for breakfast, which is something relatively new I've been doing: past couple of months or so. I used to drink a lot of juice, but I never really liked soda. I was able to give up the juice pretty easily though, so pretty much all I drink is water.

    For lunch I typically have a sandwich. Me pops gets pretty nice meat from the deli, so that's probably not a problem- turkey, pastrami, ham and swiss/provolone, etc. And then I usually have some fruit- some slices of apple, peach, banana, etc. I don't really have snacks in-between meals, except occasionally a banana or other fruit, so I also doubt that's a problem. I stopped eating crackers, cookies, that sort of snack thing. I was on Triscuits for a while, which were good, but I haven't been having as many recently. I dunno if that's a good or bad thing- I think they're somewhat healthy, but probably beat out by fruit.

    For dinner my mom usually cooks, as she's a pretty good cook. This varies a lot- chicken, pasta, fish, meat, soup, etc. I can't really give many specifics, because it is pretty random. Overall nothing that's incredibly unhealthy though, we have fried stuff once a blue moon, and fast food every few years at most. We typically have fresh bread (IE not package bread, baguettes and whatnot), and cheese on the table as well. (Cheese as in large blocks, not slices). I usually have a slice or two of bread- I cut out on putting butter on it though, just have it plain, so that probably helps a lot. And I usually have a couple slices of cheese. Maybe I should cut down on that.

    That usually lasts me until I decide to sleep, except for maybe a banana or something if I'm pretty hungry. Bananas are very convenient.

    As something to note, every Friday we order pizza. I imagine this is pretty unhealthy. Not much I can do about this though, except maybe have some fruit beforehand and just have a few less slices. I usually have 4, I could easily cut it down to 3, maybe 2 if I had something beforehand.

    As far as exercise goes, I lift weights in our basement every other day. I lift 35 pounds 10 times in 5 positions, so 50.. lifts I guess. I have no idea what the positions are called. But basically, 10 arm curls standing, 10 reverse arm curls (correct term?) standing, 10 lifting it over my head from sitting, 10 lifting it behind my head over my head from sitting, and 10 bench press (right term?). I do it every other day because apparently it's not good to do it every day. So if you could give me some exercises to do on off days that would help. Maybe leg exercises? Or something. I'd prefer them to be indoor. It'd just make it a lot easier for me, I'd rather not make this into a big thing and get my parents involved. So yeah. I could do crunches or something. I also have a trampoline: maybe I could jump for a good half hour or something every day.

    I also go swimming fairly often for a good 45 minutes doing laps. I'd say every other day to every third day I go. (1/2 to 1/3 of the time...days). So that's good. Maybe I could make it everyday.

    I guess that covers it. I do like video games, so I'd imagine the problem is more lack of exercise than dietary stuff. But still, any healthy eating tips ya got are appreciated.

    But mainly I'm looking for some good indoor exercise solutions! I much prefer to work hard for half an hour to pacing myself for two hours though, so if you have anything like that, it'd be great. I'm more looking to lose fat than build muscle, but I guess that's good too... still a second priority though. I can work on a six-pack later, now I just want to lose some weight!

    Er... thanks in advance!

    P.S. If I get one of those automated things that's like "TRY FAT-X- I LOST 20 POUNDS IN TWO WEEKS. CLICK MY LINK." that clearly didn't read my post, I will slap somebody.

    • ANSWER:

  36. QUESTION:
    Weight loss program?
    I'm a female that will be turning eighteen within the next few months. I'm 5'4 and my weight normally is constant at a good 128 lbs. There was a point in time were I went through a depresive state and dropped 5 lbs and was extremely happy with that (who wouldn't). But within the last year I've somehow managed to go from that to a wopin' 142 lbs. So my response when I stepped on the scale at physicals was shocking.

    I'd like to lose 16lbs to get back to how I was but I'm trying to lose at least 10 pounds before the start of the new school year which would roughly be in a month. I'm planning on buying my clothes a little smaller incase I make progress.

    I was wondering if anyone knew how much I'd estimately lose between now and then (August 1st - September 4th) with this plan I've been doing the last week (I just started Cheerleading conditioning):

    Breakfast:
    Medium bowl of a low calorie cereal with a cup of milk.

    Work out (one hour later):
    -Jog 1/2 mile
    -Stretch all muscles
    *150 sit ups
    *50 push ups
    (*Alternate sets)
    -Lundges (60 meter distance) 2X
    -Kicks (same as above)
    -Side kicks, each leg (same as above)
    -Jump front and back/side to side over a line (1 minute for each set, 4 of each)
    -3 sets of bleachers (up and down)
    -Then stretch out arms

    ^I do that twice a week and half that on days I don't have practice.
    I also take a day or two of rest not to wear myself out.

    Lunch: Salad with various vegetable and fruits.

    Dinner: Average size portion of the dinner served.

    My "in betweens": Fruits and sometimes the occasional sweets.

    Any tips would also be appreciated or if my plan is healthy.

    Thank you much! :)

    • ANSWER:
      10 pounds in about a month is extremely easy in my opinion :) .
      For your nutrition info, it's all great but make sure the cereal doesn't have too much calories, and that dinner doesn't have too much fat.

      For your workout, most are anaerobic exercises which develops muscle and not burn fat. The only aerobic exercise you have there is jogging. Always stretch before and after jogging. Include more time and distance into jogging. I, myself, jog about 50-60 miles a week.

      If you continue your workout (include more running like by a mile a day) and eat what you eat, you'll reach your goal in no time!

      Best of luck!

    A Weight loss program that really works, and involves you buying nothing! I've lost 23 pounds with it so far
    Okay so my New Year's resolution this year was to lose weight. After avoiding it for 20 days, I started on January 20, 2008. In the first 10 days, I lost 9 pounds. Now, today, Wednesday, April 16, 2008, I've lost 23 total. And it's so simple! You don't have to buy ANYTHING! Weekdays: Morning - eat one bowl of (non-sugared) regular LIFE cereal for breakfast - WITH SKIM MILK. For a beverage, drink either skim milk or water. Do not snack until lunch. Afternoon - for lunch, eat a salad with either skim milk or water. After lunch, both run and walk for only one mile (preferably treadmill). Do not snack before dinner.

    • ANSWER:
      I am very into nutrition and dieting. Both of my parents are overweight and I am trying to help them to loose weight. I would love to help you. The main thing you need to do is track the calories that you eat and the calories that you burn by exercising. As long as you burn more than you eat, you will loose weight.

  40. QUESTION:
    How to lose weight?
    A guy calls a company and orders their 5-day, 10 lb. weight loss program. The next day, there's a knock on the door and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 19 year old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign round her neck. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, "If you can catch me, you can have me."

    Without a second thought, he takes off after her. A few miles later, huffing and puffing, he finally catches her and has his way with her. The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing happens. On the fifth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 10 lb. as promised. He then calls the company and orders their 5-day, 20 lb. program.

    The next day there's a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life. She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads, "If you can catch me you can have me."

    Well, he's out the door after her like a shot! This girl is in excellent shape and it takes him quite a while to catch her but when he does, it's definitely worth every muscle cramp and wheeze. So for the next four days the same routine happens. Much to his delight, on the fifth day he weighs himself only to discover that he has lost another 20 lb. as promised.

    He decides to go for broke and calls the company to order the 7-day 50 lb. program. "Are you sure?" asks the representative on the phone. "This is our most rigorous program."

    "Absolutely," he replies, "I haven't felt this good in years."

    The next day there's a knock at the door and when he opens it he finds this huge, muscular, 7ft man standing there wearing nothing but pink running shoes and a sign around his neck that reads, "I'm Francis. If I catch you, you're mine...".

  41. QUESTION:
    Effective weight loss program: Weight training vs. Cardio?
    I am a 24 year old male, 5'10 tall, 205 lbs heavy.. looking to lose around 20 lbs.. what is the most ideal way to go about doing it? the traditional 5-6 days of weight training or 3-5 days of intense cardio (45-75 mins per session) from activities like aerobics and resistance spinning? Please help

    • ANSWER:
      Well if your looking to lose weight I would combine a program of both resistance training and cardio. Resistance training will help reduce muscle loss when your losing weight. During the first 30 minutes of exercise what your body is using are quick stored energy that it has from foods it ate recently. Afterwards then it begins to metabolizing the fat on your body and this is where cardio comes in. It burns a superior amount of calories compared to weight training.

  43. QUESTION:
    am i doing enough in my weight loss program?
    i am 27 yrs old, 5"10 & 270 lbs. i want to loose 90 lbs in 9 months. i walk 3 hrs a day (approx 15 kms) & eating 2500 to 3000 calories (all healthy food). i started 3 weeks ago & havnt lost a single pound. even my waist is the same as it was 3 weeks ago. only thing i have achieved is the stamina that is building up.
    am i doing anything wrong or is it normal for it to take this long.
    i am starting to get demotivated now due to the lack of results.
    also, is 90 lbs in 9 months realistic or not?
    should i add anything to my current program??

    • ANSWER:
      Ok. Walking 3hrs a day is good, but your calorie intake is high. Try cutting back to about 1500 calories a day. And maybe walking 3 miles a day. Drink lots of water and eat more veggies and fruits and whole grains. Cut out anything processed and start cooking healthy meals. Your meat should be no bigger than the palm of your hand. ANd yes its possible to lose 90 lbs in 9 months. Heres the formula. OK. Your body burns 2000 calories just to sustain itself. You would need to eat 2000 calories to stay at the same weight. So, to lose weight you need to cut your calories to say 1500 a day. It takes burning 3500 calories to burn 1 pound of fat. Say you are walking 3 miles a day, that is about 300 calories burnt in one day. So, you can take the amount of calories you consumed 1500 subtract 300 and 1200 calories is your caloric intake for the day. Then take 2000 and subtract 1200 and you get 800, which is calories burned for the day. Take 800 times 7 days and that is 5600 calories in one week. Which is 1.6 calories a week. Which is 6.4 pounds in one month. But it will be about 10 plbs a month because you don't vegatate when your not walking. But remember healthy fresh foods are a key to.

  44. QUESTION:
    I am a diabetic trying to find the best weight loss program.?
    Hi, I am 25 and I am a type one diabetic. The hardest thing I have found is keeping the weight off. I find that once I do my insulin I get the craving to eat. I try not to, but it usually defeats me and I end up eating. I can lose weight in small amounts but I'm looking for help. I am out of the house for 10 hours a day due to work and transport. Not much time to exercise but do do hip hop once a week. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm only looking to lose about 10 kilos. But keeping it off is the hard part for a diabetic.

    • ANSWER:
      I think your best bet (and safest) is to talk to a Nutritionist. Your doctor can refer you to one.

      Using ideas from the internet, or using places like Jenny Craig, etc are not safe when you have medical issues.

      A Nutritionist will be able to assist you to lose that 10 kilos without putting you at risk.

      Yoga would be good for you... or swimming as well. Local community centers usually offer those and at night... as well they are cheaper typically.

    • ANSWER:
      Exercise is only one piece of the fitness puzzle. You need to be focusing on nutrition as well. This workout seems OK but you could be eating a bag of chips everyday and offsetting everything you've been doing. What is your definition of eating healthy? You need to make sure you are burning more calories than you are consuming.

      If you control your diet and eat properly, you should be able to lose 20 lbs by summer.

  47. QUESTION:
    How can I discipline myself to stick with my weight loss program?
    I've been struggling with these extra 25 lbs for the past two years now. I have not lost anything because I give up and don't discipline myself. I eat like there's no tomorrow, like the restaurants are going to close down or something. My co-worker lost 25 lbs because she has will power and disciplines herself to exercise and eat small portions. I really really want to wear a cute cowgirl outfit to an event in August. I have four and a half months to lose as much as I can.

    The problem is not getting to *to* the gym. The problem is getting me to stop eating. For example right now I'm at work typing this up because I need help distracting myself from thinking about food. I have a desk job - ten hrs a damn day, just sitting here pushing paper and answering phones. I cannot stop thinking about food. On the weekends I do great because I have things to keep me distracted. But sitting for 10 hrs in a row with an hr break is so boriiiing.

    Please guys, help me out. What things can I think of or can I do here and there to keep me from eating while I sit?

    I really want to get my old shape back of 125 lbs.

    • ANSWER:
      Every time you start to reach for a bite, tell yourself that you can wait for 15 minutes before eating the food. At the end of that 15 min. tell yourself you can wait another 10 minutes before eating again, thereby training yourself to wait.

      I used this method to help me stop smoking.

      Also, if you have a buddy who wants to lose weight you can get competitive and supportive at the same time, to see which of you can lose 5 pounds first.

      If you must eat, in 15 minute intervals, limit what you can eat and how much. If you eat celery and carrots, prepackage them in containers, and only allow yourself that prepackaged food.

      You have a job for which you are responsible, now be responsible for your self. You can do this!

      Let us know when you lose that first 5 pounds!

  48. QUESTION:
    I know everyone says that losing 2 pounds per week is ideal, but when i really commit to a weight loss program
    and eat normally, not starving myself, i can usually lose one if not two pounds per day!!! and i do drink plenty of water, eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. i'm 14 and only five feet, i weigh 102 pounds, but i'm going to lose the 10 pounds i've recently gained. anyway i was just wondering if there's anything wrong because everyone says to lose one pound a day you would have to be exercising outrageously and not eating anything. i don't even exercise at all and i do eat! just today i had a glass of milk with an oatmeal bar in the morning, mac and cheese, and a chicken sandwich, and a lot of water to fill me up! anything wrong?
    i do weigh myself the same time everyday, in the morning, and my whole family uses that scale so i don't think it's broken

    • ANSWER:
      Losing 1 or 2 lbs a day is the surest way to fail as you will regain all your lost weight.

      To avoid regaining lost weight you must not lose more than 2 lbs a week. Slow and steady is the way to go. If you are too impatient haste leads to waste (a wasted effort). Losing weight is the easy bit and keeping it off is the hard bit.

      At 5'0 your ideal weight would be 100 lbs so above 120 lbs could be regarded as overweight. Your weight is fine and you don't need to lose any weight.

      Trying to lose weight at your young age is not recommended as it might stunt your growth and you could grow into a short adult. You probably only have one year's growth ahead of you as girls usually stop growing at 15 so you will probably peak at 5'1 in the next 12 months.

  49. QUESTION:
    Loose weight feel great....... A joke?
    A fellow was reading the paper one day lamenting the fact that his doctor has ordered him to lose 75 pounds. Next thing he sees is an advertisement for a guaranteed weight loss program. "Guaranteed like heck," he thinks to himself. "But lets see what they think they can do." He calls them on the phone and subscribes to the 3 day, 10 LB weight loss program.
    The next day there comes a knock at his door, and when he answers, there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic 19 year old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nikes and a sign hanging around her neck. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, "If you can catch me, you can have me." Without a second thought he takes off after her. A few miles later, huffing and puffing, he finally catches her and has his way with her. After they are through he kisses the girl one last time and thinks to himself with a nod, "I like the way this company does business." For the next two days, the same girl shows up and the same thing happens each time. On the fourth day, he weigh himself and, sure enough, he has lost 10 pounds.
    Deciding that he likes his somewhat more slender physique, not to mention the method of treatment, he calls the company back and subscribes to their 5 day, 20 LB weight loss program. He thinks that losing 20 pounds in only 5 days seems like a lot, but he is intrigued by what their workout schedule might be like this time.
    As expected, the next day there comes a knock at his door. When he answers it there stands a 22 year old knockout dressed in nothing but a pair of Reeboks and a sign hanging around her neck.

On the sixth day, he weighs himself and, unbelievably, he has lost another 20 pounds.

There stands before him a 200 pound perfect specimen of a man dressed in nothing but racing spikes and a sign around his neck. He introduces himself as a representative of the weight loss company.
