Burn Fat Jump Rope

What do you picture in your mind when you hear the words JUMP ROPE? Maybe it is a group of girls hitting a beat while playing double Dutch (very advanced jump rope) on the playground, or maybe you see a well chiseled boxer covered with sweat from head to toe as he completes a grueling jump rope set. Either way, many folks do not picture THEMSELVES jumping rope? While these two examples represent the extremes of what folks use jump ropes for, the fact is, jump ropes are an incredibly useful workout tool and one that will burn off fat more quickly than you can say ROCKY BALBOA!

First of all, jump ropes are fantastic because they are extremely compact. You can keep a jump rope in your car, your office, or just about anywhere for that matter. The more easily you can carry your workout equipment with you, the more likely it will be that you will use it on a regular basis. Other than the rope itself, all you need is a good pair of sneakers and you are ready for a fast paced fat burning workout with a jump rope!

Secondly, jumping rope is much easier on the knees than other forms of exercise. Seems almost contradictory when you consider that the entire workout itself is comprised of jumping, but it s true. Jumping rope is much less harder on the joints, especially the knees, than other forms of exercise that produce similar results such as running. When you run, the impact is transferred directly to the heel of your foot which in turn places great stress on the knees. When jumping rope with proper form, you will land on the balls of the feet which helps to evenly distribute the shock through your foot, ankle and calf and will place very little stress on the knees, even for folks who have some type of pre-existing knee condition.

Finally, jumping rope provides an AMAZING cardiovascular and fat burning workout. You can jump rope at a medium to high intensity and burn as many calories in ten minutes as you would if you ran a mile. Performing the same actually work and reaping the same benefits as running, but with much less stress on your body, sounds like a pretty good deal to me! Coupled with the fact that jumping rope actually gives your entire lower body a muscular workout, this often forgotten, but extremely effective may work its way into your regular fat loss routing. For an even bigger fat burning benefit, try using jumping rope as the source of a High Intensity Interval Training session.

Simply begin jumping for a few minutes at a slow pace for a warm-up, then begin jumping at a medium intensity for about 2 minutes, then jump rope as fast as you can for 30 seconds, then slow to a medium intensity again. Complete this interval training for about 6-8 sets and you will accomplish in this short time what may have taken up to an hour using other forms of cardiovascular exercise.

Jumping rope is efficient and effective, so plan to make jumping rope a serious part of your fat burning regimen from now on.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    should i get fat, then burn the fat into muscle?
    so i used to weigh 142.oh btw im 16..anyways, i stopped eating a bit becuase i was starting to get a little gut and i didnt like it...but now i weigh 130. i go to the gym everyday..im pretty strong i just want to get a little more mass on me , mostly the whole body, arms , biceps....soo.. should i eat more till i gain like 10 pounds, then burn the fat into muscle? i dont knoow what i should do..

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, i see what you're trying to get at but would like to provide some advice. You mention that you want to gain mass. Well to do so you first of all need to make sure you take in enough calories (i.e. eat enough!!). You cannot gain mass(muscle) without having the building blocks(nutrients) to provide for it.

      In bodybuilding terms, there are two distinct phases that you can go through. The first is the "bulk phase". This is where you gain mass(regardless of whether or not it is muscle or fat). The second phase is the "cut phase". This is where you trim down to get the more defined body. A good guideline is to spend about 4-6 weeks in each phase.

      So, you first would increase your daily intake of food - while at the same time hitting the weights! This is the crucal part...you really must do resistance training to reap the benefits of this. By lifting heavy(but staying at a weight that doesn't compromise proper lifting form), you will begin to increase in size. Now at first you will notice that you are getting bigger but that there may be more fat mass as well. This is normal because you are first trying to make sure you have enough calories to get bigger.

      By the end of the 4-6 week period of "bulking", you will then switch gears and begin "cutting".

      So in this second phase, you really do need to watch what you're eating A LOT more! You want to make sure you take in enough calories, yet not going over too much that you are gaining excess body fat. During this period, your lifting should shift to doing lighter weights with more repititions (i.e. 10-15 reps). At the same time during this period, cardiovascular excercise is also crucial. You need to make sure you do enough exercise (such as running, biking swimming etc.) so that you are burning off the excess calories stored in form of fat - that you added on during your "bulking phase".

      So to sum it up, you need to gain the mass first and then reduce to get that defined body.
      There is literature out there that back the concept of "cutting" first before "bulking", but that's a totally different story.

      Also i want to comment on one thing you said in question. The truth is you do not "burn fat into muscle". Muscle and fat are two totally different entities and are absolutely separate from each other in terms of storage in the body. The myth is that by weight training the fat is turned into muscle. What really happens is you will lose the fat through exercise, but muscle is gained through utilization of protein amino acids and carbohydrates from food you consume.

      Well i hope that helps. If you need further clarification feel free to ask!

  2. QUESTION:
    burning fat into muscle?
    what exercises can i do that will burn fat instead of turning it into muscle?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, first of all, let me clear up this misconception you have, fat does not turn into muscle. You can gain muscle, but you can not convert fat into it.

      Any cardio exercise you do will burn fat. A very good one is HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), if you are looking to burn fat, but not lose muscle. If you don't mind losing some muscle, but you want to lose fat, any cardio will do; jogging, tennis, running, brisk-walking, etc.

      One really good thing about HIIT is that you only have to do it for 15-20 minutes every other day, and it will burn fat 9 times as effectively as any other cardio exercise.

      Anyway, other than the cardio, cardio will never work without a proper diet. You must eat healthy, 8 cups of water a day, and I would suggest 3 cups of skim milk. Studies show that skim milk not only reduces fat, but it also strengthens your bones.

      If you're interested in HIIT you can find out more about it, and how to do it on the following website:

      Best of luck!

  3. QUESTION:
    Does Fat Turn Into Muscle?
    Hi, I joined slimming world last week, when i joined i weighed 17st 13lbs, in the past week me and my partner have been going running and sticking to a healthy diet, i have worked so hard but have been for my weigh in tonight and have only lost 4lbs, i was expecting more than that due to all the excersise i have done...Im now worried that all my fat is going to turn in to muscle...i really need to lose weight....Please help...x
    I REALLY NEED TO LOSE ALOT OF WEIGHT CAN SOMEONE TELL ME HOW THE BEST WAY TO DO IT IS...IM REALLY WORRIED I WONT BE ABLE TO DO IT WITH RUNNING X

    • ANSWER:
      No, fat cells do not turn into muscle strands. What first must happen is the fat has to be burned away and the muscles need to break down and then reform, and it takes more time to build muscle than to burn off fat, one week would not do that. You are correct in thinking muscle weighs more than fat, it is much more dense material, but to answer your question precisely: No, fat does not transform into muscle.

  4. QUESTION:
    Does burning fat lose weight or turn into muscle?
    So this year or so, I have been starting to workout/body build into a more lean muscular body and as of now, I have put on a few kgs but the fat is starting to cover my abs and stuff now.

    So what I would like to know, is does doing Exercises that burn fat, LOSE weight or do nothing to weight, but put on muscle?

    If it loses weight, cna you please tell me a way to tone my muscles so I wouldn't have to flex to make it seem more muscler.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      All exercises burn calories, cardio especially. But since I've started running I've lost more than 20 pounds but I've noticed my calves are a lot more muscular and toned than they used to be. Muscle does weigh more than fat but it also BURNS fat just by being there.

      Toning comes along with most exercises. Sit-ups, crunches, and planks work well for abs, bicep curls/tricep extensions work well for arms, squats/lunges/leg lifts for thighs, etc. If you keep doing these you should see a difference in muscle tone. It just takes time and effort. Usually bulk comes after toning, with an abundance of protein intake and intense bodybuilding. Most toned people don't see a difference in bulk unless they step their workouts up a notch.

      Hope this helped :)

  5. QUESTION:
    Turning Fat Into Muscle?
    Im 13 yrs old BIG lad Overweight but not massive it kinda suits me you know but i have fat on my biceps and i have big arms ( muscle ) if i toned it all up it would be so big, what lifts should i do? how much are the weights? and how long? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Body fat and muscle are two very different things.

      You just need some real information on what is a healthy diet and how to exercise.

      For a healthy diet, you need to be eating small to medium meals regularly. 4 or even 5 times a day. Each meal (apart from breakfast which should preferably be fibre rich), should contain a balanced ammount of carbohydrates for energy, (from potatoes, rice and pasta, etc) protien (from fish, chicken, occassional red meat is fine, soya is good too) and plenty of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants (simple fresh fruit and veg). Eat like this and make sure you are well hydrated (fruit juice is as good as water, any fluid counts, but some fluids have negative effects too, such as alcohol or caffiene rich drinks.)

      Now for the science bit: Protien is essential for repairing muscle and keeping the muscle you do have healthy (this includes your heart, lungs, brain etc). You naturally lose the ammount of protien you have throughout the day (through urine etc) so this needs to be replenished regularly on a daily basis.

      Carbohydrates are essential for energy. You won't be able to function without it. It also regulates body fat and glucose etc.

      Vitamins and minerals are obviously essential for a variety of reasons. For normal growth and development, for the healthy maintenance of the cells, tissues, and organs that make up our bodies, and also to let us efficiently use chemical energy provided by food.

      You can have a wide range of healthy meals with this, from Thai, Chinese, Italian, British, Indian, etc. Just make sure each meal contains balanced ammounts of these three. On the bright side too, fresh veg and rice and pasta is a lot cheaper than crappy junk food!

      This doesn't mean you cant have chocolate or pizza/takeaway/etc, just save them as very occassional treats.

      The big secret to keeping a healthy weight and staying healthy is EXCERCISE, particularly cardio excercise.

      Cardio exercise includes any form of excercise such as running/jogging/swimming/cycling etc that gets your heart rate pumping and you sweating and out of breath. It will not only burn calories and reduce your body fat levels, therefore making you 'slimmer' by having less fat on you, but will also improve your resting heart rate and lung function, making you healthier.

      I cannot understate the importance of cardio excercise. It is this which will basically burn the body fat off you.

      But you have to remember that once you have shed a bit of fat you have to have a nice toned body underneath the fat to show off.

      Strength training will help you strengthen and tone your muscles. This is done with the use of weights or by free training.

      There are essentially (without getting overly complicated) two types of strength excercises based on different types of muscle fibres depending on wether you want to build size, bulk and power, or just 'tone' up the lean muscles an get more muscle endurance.

      Heavy weights with short reps/sets will build your fast twitch muscle fibres and build size, power and strength. Imagine big guys at the gym lifting heavy weights.

      But if you use light to medium weights with lots of reps/sets you will excercise your slow twitch muscle fibres, you wont build size, but you will tone up your body and train muscle endurance. This will obviously make you 'look' healthier and more toned, but will also increase your metabolism (as your muscles demand more energy) so you will burn calories faster. These muscles are also excercised a lot with cardio workouts (i.e your leg muscles when running).

      Your arms for example, will need bicep curls and tricep dips using weights and reps of your choice (heavy - low reps, light - lots of reps) and also shoulder excercises such as holding the weights at your waist and lifting them perpendicular to your side or in front of you, etc etc.

      Your stomach will need excercises that cover the entire torso. Leg raises for your lower ab wall, crunches, sit ups and planks for your upper and all over ab wall, oblique twists for your sides and superman stretches for your lower back for example.

      These are just basic examples, there are literally hundreds of excercises, but it is impossible to show you on a site like this, get a trainer at your gym to show you some but remember the basic rules of muscles and weights.

      As far as excercise goes, you should aim to strike a balance between cardio training and strength training, this way you will build good strong and toned muscle, but also keep your body fat levels down and increase your heart and lung performance, making you much fitter and healthier.

  6. QUESTION:
    Can you turn fat into muscle?
    Long story short i'v got noticeable man boobs.

    Have had a few opinions concerning what to do but not sure which one is true. Which of the following is true?

    a) I can bench press and do other upper body exercises and turn that fat across my chest into muscle

    OR

    b) That will never work, will still have boobs just have the tips a bit more stiff, have to instead do lots of cardio, (jogging and skipping etc) and burn the fat off and then once I have a flat chest then build muscle by doing bench pressing and etc?

    If both explanations are invalid, then please state your alternative.

    • ANSWER:
      Fat is fat and muscle is muscle; one cannot turn into the other. You can reduce the amount of fat you carry and increase the visibility of your muscles.

      The problem is that even the best lifters still have a degree of man boobs, except it is muscular, not fully fatty

  7. QUESTION:
    I need help burning off fat?
    Hi, currently I am 14, and I'm frusterated with my body fat. Before I started working out (100 situps a night), I was 180lbs. I'm now 200lbs (20 lbs mussle weight)but my fat refuses to burn! If any thing, the mussle is making me look fatter! Please help. I'm 6feet tall if that helps :/

    • ANSWER:
      you need to do cardio. Then, you will burn the fat and your muscle will show.
      Cardio is one of the most important things you can do for your body,
      whether you want to lose weight, build muscle or improve your health.
      The great thing is, there are plenty of choices for cardio exercise.
      Anything that gets your heart rate into your target heart rate zone
      will work.
      1. Running.
      Running is a great choice for a variety of reasons:
      ?It doesn't require special equipment (except some quality shoes)
      ?You can can do it just about anytime, anywhere
      ?It's high impact, which helps build strong bones and connective
      tissue
      ?It gets your heart rate up more quickly than low or no impact
      exercise
      ?It helps you burn serious calories, especially if you add hills,
      sprints or try interval training.
      In fact, a 145-lb person can burn 300 calories by running at 5.2 mph for 30 minutes.
      2. Cross-Country Skiing
      If you're looking to burn maximum calories, cross-country skiing is
      an excellent choice. Whether you're on a gym machine or swooshing
      over miles of snow, cross-country skiing is an incredible cardio
      exercise. Because it involves both the upper and lower body, it
      doesn't take much work to get your heart rate up, which is where the
      calorie-burn comes in. A 145-lb person burns about 330 calories
      during 30 minutes of skiing.
      3. Bicycling
      Whether you're outdoors or indoors, cycling is an excellent cardio
      workout. By using the power of your legs, you increase endurance while
      burning lots of calories, anywhere from 250-500 in 30 minutes,
      depending on how fast you go and how high your resistance is. It's
      also low impact, which is great for your joints.
      4. Elliptical Trainer
      Next to the treadmill, the elliptical trainer is the most popular
      cardio machine at the gym and it's no wonder. The elliptical trainer
      allows your body to move in a natural way, but without the impact of
      the treadmill. A 145-lb person burns about 300 calories in 30 minutes.
      5. Swimming
      Swimming is another great choice because, like cross-country skiing,
      it's a full body exercise. Spend 30 minutes doing the
      breastroke and you'll burn almost 400 calories. Best of all, your
      joints are fully supported so you don't have to worry about
      high-impact injuries.
      6. Step Aerobics
      Step aerobics is another great choice, particularly for people who
      like choreographed workouts, but don't enjoy the jackhammer feel of
      high impact aerobics. It's also a great calorie-burner, targeting your
      legs, butt and hips while burning 300-400 calories in 30 minutes
      (during high intensity sessions).
      7. Rowing
      This is an often overlooked machine in the gym because we're confused
      about how it works and, perhaps, aren't sure it delivers a great
      workout. However, rowing is a physically demanding exercise involving
      both the upper and lower body, which means a higher heart rate and a
      greater calorie burn. There are different levels of resistance,
      allowing you to get a challenging workout no matter what your fitness
      level. In 30 minutes, a 145-lb person can burn about 300 calories.
      8. Kickboxing
      Kickboxing is another great choice for exercisers who want to work
      hard with more choreographed workouts. Combining kicks and punches
      not only enhances your coordination, it involes both the upper and
      lower body, making this an excellent overall workout.
      9. Walking
      Walking is another great choice for cardio because, like running,
      it's accessible: You don't need special equipment and you can do it
      anywhere, anytime. It's harder to get your heart rate up with walking
      since it's low impact but, if you work hard at it, a 145-lb person can
      burn about 180 calories in 30 minutes.
      10. Jumping Rope
      Jumping rope is another calorie-scorcher and, as an added bonus, a
      jump rope packs easily in your suitcase, making it an excellent travel
      exercise. A 145-lb person can burn a whopping 330 calories with a
      30-minute workout, but you'll want to slowly work your way up to that.

  8. QUESTION:
    Will water fasting actually help to burn fat?
    Will water fasting actually help to burn fat?

    I have looked up websites such as www.fitnessthroughfasting.com/ and learned about the body entering Ketosis after the third day, is this a good idea for fat burning, I really think it makes a lot of sense, and no comments about "starvation mode" or putting the weight back on, please give me your opinion

    • ANSWER:
      Yes you will lose weight by burning fat after about 72 hours, in which your body burns it reserves of Glucose stored as Glycogen. If you do not consume any sugars of starchy carbohydrates, your body will go into Ketosis, a metabolic process in which your body burns fat for energy. It does this by producing Ketones. It is a little uncomfortable the first 3 days, while your body changes its energy system. You will catabolize (break down) muscle because the body still needs the 8 essential amino acids for various functions such as the production of hormones and enzymes.
      So don't stay on the water fast for more than 5 to 10 days.

      What is far healthier is to go on a protein diet. This way you provide your body with the 8 essential amino acids either from proteins derived from meat or dairy or a good protein powder. Vegetable protein sources are not always complete ie. they lack one or more of the essential amino acids.
      If you do decide to use a protein powder it is essential that it not contain sugars. It may say Dextrose, Maltodextrin or Corn syrup solids. Most weight lifting protein formulas use Sucralose, as a sweetener. It does not seem to cause your body to secrete Insulin, which you do not want to do.

      A great resource to see questions anwered, Diet instructions, foods you can and cannot eat is:

      http://www.trantiendiet.com

      Doctor Tien MD PhD did the nutritional research about 25 years ago. It is an avoidance diet, in which you do not consume carbohydrates or sugars. The Protein Diet does work. It stops your body consuming its own muscle mass and burns your fat for energy.

      Finally, once you have lost the weight you want, to keep it off you must stop consuming foods that contain lots of sugar. I mean soda pop and fruit drinks and gatorade sport drinks.
      It is now known that excess consumption of sugars without any fiber will cause you liver to produce fats in the form of triglycerides. Consume to much rice or pasta or breads, and you will create more glucose than your body needs and will convert it to triglycerides. The body must secrete Insulin to do 2 things. First is to get glucose into the cells for energy and secondly to put the triglycerides into your fat cells. That is why you get fat! Over consumption of sugars and starches that get converted into fat and it gets stored in your fat cells. The body is very efficient at storing energy. Fat is the best way, in that a gram of fat has 9 calories of energy. Carbohydrates have 5 calories per gram and protein 4. And it is very difficult to burn that stored energy. If you are forced to fast or want to do it, the body wants to burn glucose, your body sugar first. ONLY then will it begin to burn fat.

      To learn of the dangers of Sugar, you can go to Youtube and type in "Sugar the Bitter Truth"
      Watch the whole video which is 1 hour and 29 minutes long. Dr Robert Lustig MD, will show you why Fructose is so bad for us when it is without a good amount of fiber (fruits are full of fiber with a small amount of Fructose and other sugars)
      Unfortunately any food that says sugar is really glucose-fructose. So one-half is good, but the Fructose is a Chronic Liver POISON. And it makes fat that gets put in your fat cells.

      Good luck on your fast and I hope you will try some vartiation of the Protein Diet.

      Oh and a point of clarification on George Bernard Shaw's answer. The brain does not need Glucose to work. It can derive energy from the ketones that results from your body consuming its own fat, once you have begun Ketosis. The only cell in the body that needs glucose is the Red blood cell; necessary for it to transport oxygen. If your body gets a supply of good protein and some fats, your body can easily produce all the glucose your red blood cells need. When I say fats, I mean some saturated (butter or milkfat for eg.), monounsaturated (olive oil or an avocado for eg), and some polyunsaturated (some Omega 3 gelatin capsules [at least 1000mg] or some sardines or salmon for eg)
      This is why it is better to not be on a water fast for very long. Otherwise you mustl consume muscle and some of your stored fat to make glucose.

  10. QUESTION:
    Turning my fat into muscle?
    So im 16 and all my life i was just kinda fatty kid, not obese or too fat, just bulky a little like my BMI was like 1pt over normal. But all my weight was fat. So I started weight lifting like 4months ago and seeing good results but i still have the fat! I do some cardio but wen i weight train i go all out, cardio is just u kno there to balance it all out. How can I make the body fat go away and get more muscle? Should I start doing like only cardio for a while?

    • ANSWER:
      Fat and muscle are two completely different things. You can't turn one into the other. However, you can replace the fat with muscle.

      To do that, you need to do more cardio. Strength training will help build muscle, which raises metabolism. Cardio burns major calories and keeps your body burning away fat. Try doing cardio 3-4 times/week and back off on the weights to 2 days/week.

      Along with exercise, clean up your diet. Diet and exercise together have been proven more effective than either alone. Get rid of seconds, junk food, and sweets (including soda and other sweet drinks). You can allow yourself one cheat day a week so you don't feel deprived. It makes it easier to stick to if you know you have a treat day coming up. Have fruit or veggies for snack instead of junk or leftovers. Drink only water, and plenty of it. That will help flush the fat and other toxins out of your system.

  11. QUESTION:
    Can I turn fat just into muscle?
    Ok, so here's the deal, I'm 5'4" and I weigh between 125 and 130 (I flucuate a lot between that) Anyways, I used to weigh 115 pre-baby which was 2 years ago so I have this left over 10-ish lbs. Now, I'm not so worried about being a rail again, but I would like to just be muscular and solid.

    So does the fat that I have, mainly my lovehandles and baby gut just turn into muscle if I vigoruosly work them out? I've started walking again, I HATE running, but I'll start that soon when my body is ready for it. Same goes for my legs and arms. Will worknig them out just build muscle underneath the fat, or will it convert the fat into muscle???

    And any tips on doing this quickly will be AWESOME!

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      our fat does NOT miraculously turn into muscle. They are two separate tissues.

      What you want to do is burn the fat and build new muscle tissue. Body recomposition. In a beginner it is possible to do both at the same time. As you progress, you must do one or the other as the calories needed for both are at the opposite side of the spectrum.

      You are not far away from your goal. I recently had 3 girls drop 15-20 lbs of fat following my advice. The key is 3-fold:

      proper mix of macronutrients (protein/carbs/fats)
      proper type of cardio (low intensity)
      lifting weights (to maintain or in your case, build, muscle)

      our macronutrient needs are based on our current body condition, dont let no one tell you different. at your weight you need the following:

      Protein 160 grams
      Fats 65 grams
      Carbs 50 grams

      Divide the protein/fats by how many meals you will have during the day and you now have your goal for each meal. Don't worry about the carbs since the only amount you should eat will be incidental in the protein and fat sources. The only other carbs you can eat are green veggies. Once a week, have a cheat meal. not day. meal. Eat whatever your little heart desires. Then, get back on your program.

      Cardio:

      Low intensity is defined as anything between 120-130 beats per minute. I use stationary bike. you can try treadmill walking at an incline. you say you don't like to jog. Thats perfect since jogging more than likely will get your heart rate ABOVE 130. Not good, because above 130 and your body will burn muscle to fuel the activity. Under 130 and our bodies use fat to fuel the activity. Your goal is to burn fat not burn muscle right? Start out at 30 mins 3 x per week. work your way up to 7 days per week. If your fat loss stalls, add 10 mins to each session. give it a week. are you still losing fat? if so, stay there. if not, add 10 more minutes. etc etc

      Lift weights 3 x per week for no more than 45minutes each session.

      Thats it. Follow this to a tee and watch your body transform.

      my fingers hurt. i better shuddup now.

      good luck!

  12. QUESTION:
    Guys how can i make fat into muscle?
    So i am overweight 6 feet and i heard that i can turn my fat into muscle

    so what are you suggestions diets, supplements or protein shakes..

    and what exercised to do to gain muscle on legs chest and arms

    and for the pubic area to lose the bulge of fat over penis

    Please help, prevent the rude comments please
    Oh ok well now that knowing its a mtyh, then how do you Make muscle and burn fat..:)

    • ANSWER:
      Burning fat is the first order of business. It's a combination of exercise, diet, and unfortunately genes. But As far as exercise, cardio is you best bet. Start out with a light jog and do that every other day. STRETCH! That is a must. And slowly increase the distance as you see fit. Burning fat is hard and don't get discouraged if you don't see immediate results.
      And diet is just as important. Don't drink sodas. Those are horrible for you, even the diet ones. Just get into the habit of drinking water, lots and lots of water. It's good for you, helps build muscle (supplies muscles with nutrients), and helps get rid of fat. Also cut back on fatty foods. Even just using less mayo or not putting that slice of cheese on a sandwich will help. Every little bit helps. But once again, if you splurge, don't get disappointed, everyone does it and it's not horrible ever once in a while.
      As for gaining muscle, push ups are a must. They are a great chest work out and also work out many other muscles such as triceps. Curl dumbbells for biceps. once again, drink lots of water.
      But my main pointer would be trying to lose weight first. Don't stress your self out by trying to do to many thing at once, as stress is a cause of overweightness in many people. Just take it slow as to not hurt yourself and don't get disappointed or discouraged. It will be a long hard road, but the end results will be well worth the time and effort.
      Hope this all helps and hope all goes well for you!

  13. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to turn fat into muscle?
    Long story short i'v got noticeable man boobs.

    Have had a few opinions concerning what to do but not sure which one is true. Which of the following is true?

    a) I can bench press and do other upper body exercises and turn that fat across my chest into muscle

    OR

    b) That will never work, will still have boobs just have the tips a bit more stiff, have to instead do lots of cardio, (jogging and skipping etc) and burn the fat off and then once I have a flat chest then build muscle by doing bench pressing and etc? (Which seems much more longer and painful process :( )

    If both explanations are invalid, then please state your alternative.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Fat is fat and muscle is muscle. They can't transform.

  14. QUESTION:
    Does running burn fat or turn it into muscle?
    I am unhappy about the fat between my thighs, on my hips and on my stomach. If I run, will the fat on my legs turn to muscle, or will it just go away? I want skinny legs, not built up ones. If running builds up muscle, then what activities can I do to get rid of the fat? Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      running burns calories. running will not build muscle for the most part. and you cannot target fat loss so running will help you lose overall fat around your body, not just in your legs.

      once again, it is IMPOSSIBLE to target fat loss.

  15. QUESTION:
    how does one turn fat into muscle?

    • ANSWER:
      Fat cannot convert itself into muscle.You have to burn the fat by aerobics by simultaneously building up muscles with diet and strength training.

Burn Fat Home Remedy

Are you asking yourself how you can eliminate abdominal fat fast? Did you pack on lbs over the holidays and need to lose it however , you do not know how? No need to speculate or be discouraged ever again.

I've got the solution. Follow these 5 MUST-DO measures instantly, and you could lose 3-5 pounds before New Year's without doing any crunches.

1 - Begin a Morning Ritual

Merely obtaining into a healthy ritual to kick-start your day will help you stay on the quick track to fat loss.

- Drink 2 cups ice cold water and take 1g Vitamin C

- Workout (with supersets and intervals)

- Have a high-protein, high-fiber breakfast (like an omelet with spinach, or a blender drink with berries, spinach, and protein powder)

- Drink 2-4 cups of Green Tea before lunch

- Take 1-2g of fish oil

These steps will maintain you full of energy, fight hunger, and support fat burning. Nothing magic in any of them, but combined, this is really a powerful plan for fat loss.

(If you workout later in the day, skip that step. There`s nothing magic about working out in the morning, but it will help you steer clear of missed workouts.)

2 - Take Benefit of Others

The SUPPORT of others, that is...

Research shows that online, in person, and in the gym social support helps you lose fat faster.

Get a workout partner and a diet buddy, and add this one simple small act to your morning ritual:

Take 3 minutes to log on to a fat loss forum and post your every day diet and exercise progress. Study shows that the more often you use a weight loss website, the much better your fat loss outcomes.

You could lose that 7-15 pounds you gained over the holidays.

3 - Avoid the Cardio Confessional & Switch to Supersets and Intervals

Just say NO to the cardio confessional. Listen, the truth is that you merely can`t jump on an elliptical machine and make those big meals from the weekends just disappear. Cardio doesn`t work that way.

In fact, new research shows that interval training workouts work faster than slow cardio for fat loss (Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise: January 2011 - Volume 43 - Issue 1 - pp 115-122).

Add in resistance training to sculpt your body and get lean (and sexy), quick.

But what EXACTLY should you do...

Well, you could go to a busy commercial gym and hire a fresh out of college personal trainer for an hour, but why bother when you can get a complete fat loss workout blueprint on-line.

4 - Track Your Body Composition

Begin by obtaining a baseline of your body fat level (percent) and then take the following body measurements.

Waist Circumference (at navel): _____

Mid-Upper Arm Circumference:_______

Mid-Thigh Circumference: ________

Hip Circumference (Widest point between legs & navel):____________

These are essential to know because while your weight might not move, all that matters is that your body fat goes down.

Seeing the inches drop will keep you motivated and frustration-free.

5 - Take Prior to Photos

As much as you may dislike this, it could be the most crucial thing you need to do in your fat loss quest.

All things considered, the most common element of all weight loss success stories is having that Before photo. It encourages and motivates you to continue sticking with your rituals and making the right choices.

Workouts and diets might differ, but the Prior to photo is always there.

Take your photo - it is really, really important, and you`ll thank me later when you compare the NEW you to that old photo.

Alright, now you have the 5 actions you must take immediately in order to have the COMPLETE BLUEPRINT to your fat loss success in 2011.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    how do a burn fat an gain lean muscle?
    I am 5'10 and a half and weigh 160 lbs. I have been working out for about 2 and a half solid years. when I first started I did a weight lifting routine from a trainer my goal was to get buff, so and worked out 4-5 days a week for about a year and a half and I gained allot of muscle and weighed 170lbs. The trainer who set me up with the routine told me to eat allot and so I did but I think I took it a little to far and thought the eating would get me bigger. well I was bigger but it was a mix of muscle and a layer of fat. So I decided to change my fitness goal and I wanted to get lean and ripped so I did a intense workout routine that was cardio and lighter weights. in the 2 months of my new workout I lost 10lbs. BUT THE FAT WAS STILL THERE! I got allot smaller but that fat just got smaller and matched my body proportion! and I lost muscle mass. so how do I lose this layer of fat without getting any lighter and without losing anymore muscle mass!? I hope someone has an answer!

    • ANSWER:
      go on a CKD and eat ONLY good fat/oils such as omega 3 ,sunflower oil ,olive oil - but limit your carb grams to 30 per day from fibrous veg only - the protein intake should also be high at 1.5 grams per LBM with this source coming from fish,egg whites,chicken(cooked with the skin removed) turkey(no skin also) stay on this eating plan for 3 days then days 4/5 begin to carb up with clean complex carbs (oats in water) on day 6 simply repeat the sequence with high fat,low carb etc - NO SAT OR TRANS FAT WHATSOEVER - keep working out hard to preserve muscle while the storage fat deceases - at least 4 times per week BUT cardio is counterproductive so just walking will suffice,
      when limiting carbs your body will begin to use another source of energy - fat ingested + your OWN storage fat and the energy felt will be tremendous so don't be afraid to have at least 12 teaspoons of any good oil (2 teaspoons at each of your 6 meals), btw you can stay on this for 5 days then on the weekends carb up - on MON begin depletion again...

  2. QUESTION:
    Tips on how to burn fat and build LEAN muscle? Answers from the pros, please?
    In my career, I spend a lot of time onstage singing, so one would understand why I want to keep an eye on my weight. I'm 20 years old and about 5'6". According to charts, I'm not overweight?I'm right where I should be for my size and age. I do have some areas that could use a bit of work though, which I'm more than willing and able to do; I just need the right suggestions.

    GOAL:
    To burn fat and build lean muscle, but overall, I just want to stay healthy.

    1.) What kinds of foods are best to eat while trying to stay in shape? What kinds of foods should I avoid?

    I know cutting down on the sugar and eating more vegetables will help, but I'd like some answers from someone who knows what they're talking about, has been there, gotten results, and isn't trying to sell me something. (But sorry, there is no chance of me becoming a vegetarian.)

    2.) I have an Ab Lounge, and I've started using it again. Besides crunches, what are some other techniques to build and tone muscle for the whole body, without acquiring a bulky physique? I'd like to stick with lean, more "girly" muscles, I guess. lol

    3.) I know that to get the best results, I have to not only build muscle but BURN FAT which is key. What are some at-home exercises I can start doing that will get my heart rate up? What kinds of specific aerobics moves, number of repetitions etc.? (I'd walk around town more, but it snows here until March or April.)

    Any answers will be appreciated, as long as you're not being mean or creepy. =)
    Thanks!
    I've also heard that increasing the amount of water that you drink every day will help with your weight control. I already know it keeps you hydrated and helps clear your complexion, but is the weight thing also true?
    *** YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN SO GREAT that I, myself, can't choose the best answer, so I'm gonna leave it up to the voters. Thanks so much. =)

    • ANSWER:
      I'll try to answer them all in order for you. This is going to be pretty long so I hope I don't bore you haha.

      1.) You're correct about eating less sugar and more vegetables. That's something everyone needs to do more of. On top of that, you want to be getting a lot of protein to help you build muscle. Without getting too much into your second question as I will answer that in a second, girls don't build bulky muscles like guys unless they really try to (I think you can figure this one out). So don't be scared of the term building muscle like a lot of girls are when they first hear it.

      You want to eat lean sources of protein such as chicken, turkey, and fish. Grilled not fried obviously. You also want to eat about 5-6 square meals a day to keep your metabolism going. Contrary to what most people believe for some reason, the less you eat, the more likely you are to gain weight. Your metabolism runs by you providing it with fuel (food) and we all know that a running metabolism burns off calories. Try to incorporate fruits and vegetables and protein into each meal. It may sound like a lot at first, but I'm not talkin about full course meals. Small ones spaced throughout the day provide your metabolism with a constant flow of energy to keep running. An easy way is to add 1-2 protein shakes to your daily diet. These can count as 1 of your meals.

      2.) Crunches don't build and tone muscle for the whole body. They strengthen your core area but that's it. You can't "spot reduce" any area of your body. What that means is you can't just do a ton of crunches and expect your stomach area to get smaller. Maybe you know this already but a lot of people don't so I thought I'd mention it. You want to focus on compound exercises such as: squats, presses, pull ups, and other exercises that involve multiple body parts at once. This allows you to burn more calories and build multiple muscle groups at the same time. A lot of people think that those are "men" exercises and that girls will build big bulky muscles if they workout like men do. This is not true as I alluded to in the first answer above. Male and female genetics are different and girls just won't get big and bulky like guys do.

      3.) Some good at-home exercises you can start with are basic push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, squats, lunges, and calf raises. You can also do some plyometrics such as jumps, jump squats, box jumps, etc. Look online for some good plyometric exercises that you can do at home. Most don't require any weights. Jump roping is also a great way to get your heart rate up and burn calories.

      The most important thing for you to do is eat right and don't neglect lifting weights. You want to do cardio too but don't overdo it. Also don't overdo the crunches and sit-ups. Abs are like any other muscle group, they need rest and recovery time. Make sure you're taking days off too where you don't do anything at all. Ideally you want to workout 3-4 times a week and take the rest of the days off. However you split it up is your decision. I'm not saying be lazy as hell on your off days but just don't go to the gym or actually "workout". Walking and being active is great though.

      I know this was long but I hope it helps out some. If you have any other questions feel free to email me at J121887@gmail.com

  4. QUESTION:
    Supplements for burning fat and gaining lean muscle?
    I am mainly trying to lose weight, but at the same time I want to build some lean muscle. I do cardio and lift weights 6 days a week. Right now I am taking protein and creatine, along with lipo 6 which is a fat burner. I was wondering if there are any other supplements that would help me reach my goal which is ultimately losing 80 pounds and building lean muscle. Any help not regarding supplements would be very welcome as well. Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi
      Therefore, it is important that you make sure your body is stocked with the right muscle building diet to help in your goal of a leaner, more muscular look. Here are a few muscle gaining diet tips to help you build a diet that is sure to fuel that metamorphosis in your body.

      1. Lean meat. Lean meat is rich in protein and is a good basic building block for more muscle. Meat such as steak and other protein-rich foods has been a staple of many bodybuilding experts for over the past few decades. However, make sure you avoid the fat as it could compromise your bodybuilding goals.

      2. Fiber rich foods. Fiber has long been known to help those wanting to lose weight. First of all, it prevents the body from absorbing too much fat. And, it also helps lower cholesterol and is a source of slow-burning carbohydrates, which is ideal for those wanting to lose weight.

      Examples of fiber rich grains are oatmeal, wheat, vegetables and fruits. You could also buy them as supplements at any health store.

      3. Water. Most professional bodybuilders go on diuretics just lose body liquids so that there muscle cuts can be more pronounced. However it is important for anyone going for in the look to drink enough water since workouts deplete natural body fluids.

      4. Soybeans. Soybeans are a great source of protein and are low in fat and contain virtually no cholesterol. Many have been heralding soybean as one of the saviors of muscle building and weight loss.

      It can be eaten as tofu, bean curd desserts and others. It is also cheap and easy to procure.

      5. Whey protein. Whey protein is ready available at any health shop. It can be taken in as a supplement and mixed with soups, vegetables, and shakes. Whey protein is easy to absorb and is one of the best sources of protein available.

      6. Egg whites. The protein of eggs resides in its egg whites. So, if you want to bulk up and get your protein from eggs, eat the whites and avoid the yellow part of the egg. You may also want to purchase processed egg whites from help stores. They are also good sources of protein.

  5. QUESTION:
    I want to burn fat while gaining lean muscle mass...?
    should i eat alot of protein?
    i tend to bulk up easily
    i just want to lose some fat but get stronger for the upcoming season

    what should i eat?
    what should i do?
    im confused...u just hear so much diet stuff out there

    • ANSWER:
      to gain lean muscle and still burn fat you do need to stenght train and do some cardio. The cardio I recommend it daily and strenght training every other day. Cardio should be done 2 hours daily and on your strenght traing days work 3o minutes for each muscle, like lower body whicj is your legs, thighs, and calfs , top body which is your arms, tummy, back. You will also need to eat protein like fish, chicken, or turkey also protein shakes and less fat so you wont bulk up. Instead use olive oil and grill or stem you meats. Veggies can be done the same way. You will have to eat healthy because if you eat to much fat the muscle will grow obove the fat and will make you look bigger than what you are. For cardio go on a 30 minute jog and follow with 10 minutes of jumprope. For the muscle do squats, lets see start with 60 and keep adding weeky also with lunges, this will workout your legs and gluges. For arms lift dumbells, do 10 for each arm , bicept and tricept, take a 5 second brake for each 20 count. Do some push-ups- 50, this also counts with wall push ups. For tummy do bicycle crunch, leg lift crunch, side crunch. do 60 for each move. Just keep in mind the cardio, i reccomend the strenght training first, on your strenght training days then the cardio, so you can get a far better result. good luck

  6. QUESTION:
    Burn fat and lean up or build muscle and get bigger with still the gut.(skinny fat)?
    I'm 17 years old and have 13% body fat. I'm 5'8" and 145 pounds. i don't know if i should burn fat or build muscle first. i have the skinny fat syndrome. i am skinny but my abs don't show unless i flex my stomach but i want my abs to show without me flexing them. i want to go down to at least 6% body fat before April (contest shape) because im going to go to the beach, but i also want to build muscle too. I eat very healthy and dont eat any junk food whatsoever. I dont know if i should do full body circuits to burn fat or split workouts to build muscle. And if I do muscle building workouts and build muscle, will my body fat start to burn off automatically or do i have to do fat loss workouts to burn the fat? i dont think if i build muscle it will burn away body fat because of the caloric surplus I need for muscle building. In order for fat burning you need a caloric deficit, which is completely different from building muscle. Can you also tell me how sets and reps I need. So I don't know what to do and im completely lost. If you can please help me out I will very much appreciate it. Thanks a lot in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      My advice would be to build muscle.

      You may still have that gut for a little while but at least you will look more proportional if you have bigger shoulders and chest.

      The bigb advantage though is once you have bulked up you can go on a "cutting" stage to burn fat. The good thing is when you have muscle the body consumes more energy to feed it. IF you work out enough to keep your muscle and reduce your calories a bit the body goes into overdrive to burn the fat for energy and not the muscle.

      If you try to burn your stomach fat you will probably make yourself skinnier in the other places and end up looking skeletal.

      This site might help you understand the process a little bit ... it does not cover the cutting process but the program it advertises at the bottom is very good and I have used it to help myself gain muscle (former skinny guy here!)

  7. QUESTION:
    How I can burn my fat?
    I have a little belly and too much fat in the sides of my belly (lower than kidney).This makes me look too much fat.Sorry for bad English.
    I'm a 13 year old male.

    this is the fat I want to burn.

    • ANSWER:
      Here are six simple tips that will have you losing weight in a balanced and healthy way and burn fat:

      1. Lose weight with water.
      Water is essential for everybody - it is also the key to losing weight. If you haven't been drinking enough water, your body has developed a pattern of storing water. This water retention equals extra unwanted weight.

      By drinking more water, you are not only flushing out toxins, you are also teaching your body that it no longer needs to store water. Drink at least 60 ounces of water (about 8 glasses) a day. Boil water and sliced lemons, and drink this throughout the day to help with fluid retention. If you are still not sold on the merits of water, try this on for size: water is a natural appetite suppressant.

      2. Soup up your weight loss program.
      A simple dietary change will have you shedding pounds: eat a bowl of soup at least once a day. Nutritious, low-salt soups will nourish you as they flush waste from your body. People who eat a serving of soup daily lose more weight than those who eat the same amount of calories but don't eat soup. Go for homemade soup whenever possible, as canned soups are loaded with salt and chemicals.

      3. Eat early to keep weight off.
      The human body follows a circadian rhythm, which means that the same foods eaten at breakfast and lunch are processed differently than when eaten at dinner. Studies show that when you eat your daily protein and fat at breakfast you tend to lose weight and have more energy; however, eating the same things at dinner tend to increase tendencies toward weight gain. I suggest that you eat your last meal of the day by 7 p.m.

      4. Eat smaller meals, more frequently.
      Follow an eating schedule with five little meals every day. Eating steadily through the day keeps you from becoming famished and overeating at your next meal. Make a low-fat trail mix from raw almonds, pumpkin seeds, dried plum, and apples and have it available at all times to avoid the tempting lure of high-calorie snacks.

      5. Adopt a balanced approach to your diet.
      Most of the fad diet programs out there nowadays are extreme in a few recommended foods, or else deprive the body of food altogether. This works in opposition to our metabolism and the results usually don't last, producing a yoyo effect that depresses your metabolic function - not to mention your self-esteem. We are natural beings that need a balance of nutrition from all sources.

      Your diet should consist of a balance of organic sources of lean protein, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, legumes, nuts, fruits, and vegetables. Instead of white rice and pasta, opt for brown rice, bulgur, millet, or buckwheat.

      Eat more green, chlorophyll-rich foods such as broccoli, kale, spinach, and asparagus. Eliminate candy, sugar, soda, and all simple sugars from your diet. Excess sugar ends up being stored as fat in your body, which results in weight gain. Also, keep dairy to a minimum because most dairy products are high in saturated fat. Avoid fatty foods, processed or fried foods.

      6. Walk off the weight.
      The No. 1 cause of weight gain is inactivity. Physical activity is the key to speeding up your metabolism and burning excess calories. The best way to be physically active is to use your legs! Walk as often and as long as you can. Always take the stairs instead of the elevator.

      Step outside during your break at work and take a walk around your building. Consider joining a local hiking club. Try taking a walk 30 minutes in the morning or 30 minutes in the early evening.

      I hope this article helps you shed some pounds and add on the years! I invite you to visit often and share your own personal health and longevity tips with me.

      May you live long, live strong, and live happy!

  8. QUESTION:
    Leaner legs and burning fat ?
    My legs are bulky and fat. Im not fat but I do have fat on my inner thighs. I know that you can't lose fat by concentrating an area. I know I should do cardio to burn fat but I dont know any that wouldnt bulk up my legs. Yes I've tried stretching. I'm to the point of flexibility that if I bent any further , I'd break a bone in my body or something. So other than stretching , what will make my legs look thinner? And what cardio exercise is there that WONT bulk up my legs and make me not have fat in the inner thigh area?

    • ANSWER:
      I have a lot of friends who are the same way! I would recommend running. One of my best friends will not touch a spin bike or elliptical because they cause her to bulk up, but she will run, swim, and she's taken up ballet (adult classes). She's gotten really lean! I recommend running on as flat of a surface you can for a long time. Build up distance and time! I'm a long distance runner so I'm pretty lean, but it's also partially genetics. Endurance cardio, stuff you do for a long time with low resistance, should keep you from bulking up, but provide good exercise. Just remember to not start all at once, build up with time. :)

    Can jumproping burn belly fat?
    I'm 14 years old, I'm 5'10, and I love to workout, I just got addicted to working about 2 weeks ago, and I am about 250 pounds, I was wondering if jumproping and eating right will burn belly fat.

    • ANSWER:
      yes jumproping will burn belly fat. any type of exercise will burn fat. the higher intensity and the longer you do it the more you burn.

      eating right is also very important to loose fat. try once a week cutting something very small off of your daily meals. like say one day you where going to have chips don't do it eat a apple or banana instead.

      also you should do this.

      every morning you should eat lean protein. (eggs, nuts etc.)
      this will get you metabolism running and should help you burn a little more fat throughout the day.

      every meal you should have some lean proteins. you should try and have 1 serving of a fruit at lunch.
      and one serving of vegetables at dinner.

      eat one small snack in the middle of the day. almonds are great, or a protein bar works.

      I have so much more to say but I don't have the time.

      so finally drink lots of water 8+ cups trust me!!

      anyway goodluck :)

  10. QUESTION:
    How does lean muscle burn fat?
    I was told that lean muscle mass can help somebody lose body fat but the question is how can I lose body fat while gaining lean muscle mass?

    • ANSWER:
      This is called thermogenesis. This is basically the process of how your body uses up energy. Basically, by increasing your bodies resting metabolic rate, you will therefore increase your thermogenic response which is an increase in the use of energy, or calories. How do you increase your basal metablic rate? With exercise, but more specifically, weight training. Weight training strengthens muscle tissue which is the most metabolic tissue we have. By strengthening your muscles, you will therefore increase your basal metabolic rate which is how you can use lean muscle tissute to burn body fat. Even when your resting, your muscles will still be working, burning up calories to keep the muscle tissue moving and to support it's growth.

      I have a complete 12 week program that's free to use and it works at building lean muscle mass. You can check it out here:

  11. QUESTION:
    How to burn stomach fat?
    I've gained a lot of weight over the summer and I've got a tummy going now. I want to lose some by the second week of August when I'm going shopping for new clothes. To be honest I don't care about the pounds, I want to burn stomach fat and tone my thighs. I don't have access to a gym. Are there any specific exercise I could do to do this quickly? Or are there any tricks? I'm in drumline and we constantly do physical training and running and marching, but that doesn't start until school does so I wanna build stamina and endurance while burning fat. So is there anything?

    • ANSWER:
      You can burn stomach fat without the gym. The first thing that is going to truly determine if you'll successfully burn belly fat is your overall diet. We'll get to exercising in a bit but if your diet isn't in check, you will have a hard time burning fat.

      Stick to more lean protein like chicken breast, turkey breast, egg whites, fish, lean beef, cottage cheese etc and lots of green veggies. These 2 components should be the main staple in your diet. By doing this, you'll suck out a lot of water weight and fat along with lowering the carbs, this will help tremendously, trust me.

      Workout wise, running 4 times a week for 1/2 hour each session with intensity will work. Hope that helps. If you need more advice on burning stomach fat, come check out my youtube channel below. I have healthy recipes, snacks, diet tips and workouts, all free advice! link below.

  13. QUESTION:
    workout suggestions for burning fat and gaining lean muscle?
    im 6ft 1 and 230 lbs , im definitely over weight , but im very athletic . what im looking for is a plan to workout 3 to 4 times a week , and lose 30 lbs of fat , which is definitely there. any suggestion on a diet and exercise plan??

    • ANSWER:
      Run! Always run on a treadmill each workout for about 30 minutes.

      Avoid sugary and fatty foods and drinks.

      Don't try to workout with heavy weights. Go somewhat lighter (10lbs lighter than you can handle) so you can do more reps. Doing more reps will help burn the fat around the muscle and will make you look more toned. Doing heavy weights with less reps tears up your muscles and when you sleep, they grow back thicker. So I don't think you want to get bigger muscles if you are trying to lose weight.

      And that's about all you need to know. Just eat right, sleep right, and workout at least an hour to an hour and a half each workout.

      And take the stairs instead of the elevator!

  15. QUESTION:
    running to burn fat?
    does running help burn off ur fat? i have recently starting running and i do it everyday for about half an hour and i use to do this earliar in the yr and i lost weight but i have been doing this for the past 2 weeks and i have not lost anything or look any better? helpp

    • ANSWER:
      Yes. Running burns fats. It is one of the most effective and least-cost fat burning tools available to man. How many middle or long distance runners (not necessarily Olympians) do you know with excessive belly fat?
      1) You must run at a rate at least 70% of your heart rate for at least 30 minutes (stopping and starting is ok and advised for people beginnig new programs)) Try a small spurt for the last 20 metres and extend by 5/10 metres each run.
      2) You must accompany you schedule with a nutrional program using a balance of protiens, carbs and good fats but with some emphasis on foods which stimulate your metabolism.
      2.1) Take 5 small meals a day rather than 3 big ones
      3) You have to vary your schedule so that the body does not naturally adapt to preserve fat. Sometimes it can be harder for people who have lost weight previously (like you did) This comes from our genetic instincts as hunter gathers to preserve fat for when food is scarce. Our bodies don't like to give it away easily. Also the timing of your run may be critical. Arguably it is better to run in the morning when are carb levels are low and the body will look to burn fat as the alternative. However, some experts believe that this can potentially burn more lean muscle. My suggestion would be morning running after low-carb low-cal snack (i.e wholegrain (not wholemeal). toast with lemon tea.
      4) 1/2 kilo maximum per week is a sensible weight loss and proof that you are supplementing your program with the right food.

      I know the above works.I lost 12 kilos (my target) and have maintained my current weight for 2 years. Running and nutrition were my only tools. I still run (longer distances) but my weight now remains contstant as I eat a few more nutrient dense calories.

      n.b. Remember to wear proper running shoes if you run on concrete. No point in being thin if you ruin your leg joints in the process.

      Good luck and never give in!

How to Lose 10 Pounds During Sports

There are many books and manuals out there by nutritionists that help to provide the correct diets for improving strength and endurance. When looking for a guide be sure to read this article first as it is aimed towards female athletes looking to improve performance. The body system that a women has is totally different to that's of males. That is the main reason why that a woman who is interested in sports will have a completely different set of nutritional needs. And just like men, women are also more than capable of involving themselves in sports. The sports nutrition for women is different, those that are involved in sports and have regular exercise will have some special nutritional needs. The basic principles however are the same for men and women when it comes to nutrition but there are small differences. Females who are involved in regular sporting activities will have more needs for certain nutrients. This is mainly due to that fact that woman are more prone to dietary deficiencies. This is not to say that men are completely immune, this is just due to the fact that woman have ongoing cycles taking place inside their body. It is very important to keep the right level of nutrients up to prevent any disorders. The main nutritional factors in sports nutrition for women would have to be iron and calcium. Another important issue for women is weight control and eating disorders. Calcium and iron are required nutrients to help the body perform at it's peak. In saying that though there still has been no scientific reason for this, but the simple fact is that women are overly conscious about their weight. By having a normal weight in will help in giving you a healthy psychological system. Calcium is a mineral that plays an essential role in growth. In sports, muscle and mind coordination is important. It also helps in muscle contraction and transmission of nerve impulses. Another reason why it is useful is due to the fact that it will aid in the maintenance and development of strong bones. This play an important part in the nutritional intake that women require. Having adequate amounts of calcium during your childhood and adolescence is important for developing an optimal peak in bone mass by your mid twenty's to your early thirty's. This will then help you reduce your risk of acquiring osteoporosis or the thinning of your bones. Some women who are into sports are at risk of inadequate calcium intake, while some are at risk of early osteoporosis due to the absence of appropriate amount of calcium, or an irregularity of their menstrual cycle. So conclusively, women should have higher intakes of calcium. There is a list of recommended dietary intakes of calcium for sports women according to their ages. For girls with ages twelve to fifteen, they must have at least one thousand milligrams of calcium per day. For teenagers with ages sixteen to eighteen, on the other hand, should have a normal calcium intake per day, which is eight hundred milligrams. For women who are having their menstrual periods, they should also take eight hundred milligrams of calcium a day. Post menopausal women should have at least one thousand milligrams per day of calcium, while women who are pregnant and who are also breast feeding should have one thousand two hundred milligrams per day. And, not to be the least, sportswomen who have an absent or an irregular menstrual cycle, they should have at least one thousand to one thousand five hundred milligrams in a day. It is detrimental for women to meet their required calcium intake for normal functioning. What is used to help form hemoglobin is the mineral iron, this is very important in maintaining the oxygen in the blood as it is transported to the different parts of the body. It is also a very important nutrient in helping produce energy and immunity. Athletes are more prone to iron deficiencies than anyone else in the world. Women are at a bigger risk because they continually lose blood as they undergo the cyclical process of menstruation. Plus, strenuous exercises contribute to the loss of iron through the destruction of red blood cells. Inadequate iron intake are associated with reduced athletic performance. Women will require the nutrient iron in big amounts. Being able to keep the body's fat levels low is often the main aim of many female athletes. Having excess fats can have a negative effect on performance. However having less fat or none at all can compromise the energy levels of a female athlete. Low energy will affect overall sporting performance, that is why it is so important to keep the right amount of nutrients in the body. The right sports nutrition for women will aid performance in all exercise and sporting activities.

    • ANSWER:
      WITH THIS DIET YOU WILL LOSE 10 POUNDS IN A WEEK!! IM ON THIS DIET AND ITS GOING GREAT!! GOOD LUCK!!

      This 7-day eating plan can be used as often as you like. If correctly followed, it will clean out your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well-being. After only 7 days of this process, you will begin to feel lighter by at least 10 pounds and possibly 17 pounds, and experience an abundance of energy.

      SOUP:

      * 1 or 2 cans of stewed tomatoes
      * 3 plus large green onions
      * 1 large can of beef broth (no fat)
      * 1 pkg. Lipton Soup mix (chicken noodle)
      * 1 bunch of celery
      * 2 cans green beans
      * 2 lbs. Carrots
      * 2 Green Peppers

      Season with salt, pepper curry, parsley, if desired, or bouillon, hot or Worcestershire sauce. Cut veggies in small to medium pieces. Cover with water. Boil fast for 10 minutes. Reduce to simmer and continue to cook until veggies are tender.

      This soup can be eaten anytime you are hungry during the week. Eat as much as you want, whenever you want. This soup will not add calories. The more you eat, the more you will lose. You may want to fill a thermos in the morning if you will be away during the day.

      DRINKS:

      * Unsweetened juices
      * Tea (also herbal)
      * Coffee
      * Cranberry juice
      * Skim milk
      * Water, water, water

      DAY ONE
      Any fruit (except bananas). Cantaloupes and watermelon are lower in calories than most other fruits. Eat only soup and fruit today.

      DAY TWO
      All vegetables. Eat until you are stuffed with fresh raw, cooked or canned veggies. Try to eat green leafy veggies and stay away from dry beans, peas or corn. Eat veggies along with the soup. At dinnertime tonight reward yourself with a big baked potato and butter. Don't eat any fruits through today.

      DAY THREE
      Eat all the soup, fruit and veggies you want. Do not have a baked potato. If you have eaten as above for three days and not cheated, you should find that you have lost 5-7 pounds.

      DAY FOUR
      Bananas and skim milk: Eat at least 3 bananas and drink as much milk as you can today, along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates, as is the milk but on this particular day, your body will need the potassium and carbs. Proteins and calcium to lessen the cravings for sweets.

      DAY FIVE
      Beef and tomatoes: you may have 10 to 20 ounces of beef and a can of tomatoes, or as many as 6 tomatoes on this day. Eat the soup at least once today.

      DAY SIX
      Beef and veggies, eat to your heart's content of the beef and veggies today. You can even have 2-3 steaks if you like with green leafy veggies but no baked potato. Be sure to eat the soup at least once today.

      DAY SEVEN
      Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juice and veggies, again, be sure to stuff yourself and eat the soup. You can add cooked veggies to your rice if you wish.

      By the end of the 7th day, if you have not cheated on this diet, you should have lost 10 to 17 pounds. If you have lost more than 17 pounds, stay off the diet for two days before resuming the diet again.

      This diet is fast. The secret lies within the principle that you will burn more calories than you take in. It will flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well-being. This diet does not lend itself to drinking any alcoholic beverages at any time. Because of the fat build-up in your system. Go off the diet at least 14 hours before any intake of alcohol.

      Due to the variety of digestive systems in individuals, this diet will affect everyone differently. After day three, you will have more energy than when you began, if you do not cheat. After being on the diet for several days, you will find that your bowel movements have changed. Eat a cup of bran or fiber. Although you can have black coffee with this diet, you may find that you don't need caffeine after the third day.

      The basic fat burning soup can be eaten anytime you feel hungry during the seven days. Eat as much as you wish. Remember the more you eat, the more you will lose. You can eat broiled, boiled or baked chicken instead of the beef. Absolutely no skin on the chicken. If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for the beef on only one of the beef days. You need the high protein in the beef for the other days.

      Continue on the diet as long as you wish and feel the difference both mentally and physically.

      DO NOT - DO NOT
      No bread, alcohol, carbonated drinks (including diet drinks). Remember, absolutely no fried foods.

      DO - DO - DO - DO
      Drink plenty - at least 6 to 8 glasses - of water a day, as well as any combination of the following beverages: black coffee, unsweetened fruit drinks, cranberry juice and skim milk.

      This diet comes from the Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital that is used for overweight heart patients in order to lose weight rapidly, usually prior to surgery.

  2. QUESTION:
    Who here has lost 10 pounds or more in month?
    What did you do to lose the weight?
    How long did it take you?

    • ANSWER:
      i lost about 10 pounds during the spring sports season which is like march to late may. all from lacrosse. running and stuff.

  3. QUESTION:
    Will I be unable to participate in high school sports if I lose over 10 pounds?
    On the athletic physical form there is a section that says athlete has gained or lost more than 10 pounds in the past year. If I am at a normal weight for my height and lose 10 or more pounds will the doctor most likely not let me participate? I am tall (5'11 & 155 pounds) so me losing 10 pounds is less proportionally to others.

    • ANSWER:
      No, it won't disqualify you from playing sports.

      There are two basic reasons that question is on the form. One, to prevent unhealthy weight loss to meet cergain sporting weight classes, like wrestling or power lifting, or TWO, to catch certain medical issues that may not yet have been diagnosed.

      1) Unhealthy weight loss. If you explain to your doctor that "I notice I was getting kinda chubby and started jogging 3 times a week", or "I caught the flu and was sick for a couple weeks", then he'll move on. If you say "well wrestling season is coming up so I cut weight" (read quit eating), or if you say, "I've been having trouble in school and just haven't been hungry much," then he may raise an eyebrow and take a closer look at your actual health condition during the physical, but it still won't likely disqualify you from sports, unless you are displaying signs of liver or kidney failure, or extreme malnutrition. So it's a red flag, but not likely a disqualification.

      2) Unintentional weight loss. If you say "wow, I lost 10lbs? I wasn't even trying", the doc is likely going to go over you with a fine toothed comb. If you're not trying, and didn't even notice it, then likely it's an indicator of some underlying medical condition. People GAIN weight on accident, but if they LOSE weight on accident, something is usually wrong. 10lbs on a 155lb person is considerable, almost 7%. Losing almost 7% of your body mass on accident is likely a sign of an impending medical issue, like cancer, GI disfuntion, autoimmune disorders, depression, etc etc. Much more likely to be a disqualification, but only if they find some other underlying problem.

      Bottom line, don't worry about it. You know you lost the weight, so you probably know how and why. So you fall under category number 1. Explain why you lost the weight and he'll just move on.

  5. QUESTION:
    I need to lose around 10 pounds in a month?
    I'm a sixteen year old female trying to lose around 10 pounds in a month.
    Could someone please help me with a meal plan and an exercise schedule I could do at home without any gym equipment?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, that is not a good goal.

      You are still growing. Your bones are still growing, and desperately need you to not try to LOSE weight! Dieting (or exercising without eating more food to compensate) will cause you to not build the bone density that is done mostly during your teens up to early 20s. Do trying to lose weight is a very bad idea.

      I know at 16 how much pressure there is to be thin, but it is not healthy to succumb to that. Try to involve yourself in activities which help you feel good about your body, such as sports you enjoy that are not weight or shape focused (such as soccer.) Enjoy being physically active to feel good, rather than for changing weight or shape.

      Stay filled up on nutritious meals and snacks, eating plenty of starches, proteins, fats, fruits, and veggies and learn to trust your body to know what to do for optimal health if you treat it well.

      There are so many more important things to focus on at 16 (or any age) than weight. Dress nicely, never put yourself down, and focus on things that make you happy, feel good, expand your skills, intellect, personality and opportunities, for lasting happiness. You will be glad you did:)

      If you feel a need to, read up on developing a positive body image online.

  6. QUESTION:
    Ramadan:Weight loss/10 pounds?
    This Ramadan, i'm planning to lose some weight. i've already lost like 12 (or more) lbs. since january but i really feel that i need to lose more. currently, i am about 112 pounds and about 5 foot 3. some people say this is a very good weight for a teen (by the way i'm 14) but it just doesn't fit my body. i want to tone my thighs and flatten out my stomach. is it possible that i can lose 10 pounds? i play sports and excersize, and i don't pig out like most people do during ramadan. also, how do i slim my thighs? i'm a size 3 is there any way i can slim down to a two or less? thank you:)

    • ANSWER:
      yes, you can if you excercise a lot after Iftar and eat slowly you can.
      I usually lose some weight during Ramadan but as you said one should avoid eating like a pig like some people do.

  7. QUESTION:
    How do I lose 5-10 pounds per week?
    I really want to lose at least 20 pounds but I'm too lazy to exercise or go to a gym. So please help me lose weight.
    Btw, is oatmeal a good replacement for a regular meal (for example, dinner)?
    Um..wow, most of you gave interesting answers, how will I pick the best answer now? LOL... XD..

    I should've included more info when I posted this question. Well, better late than never. I am living in an Asian country, so, we are rice-eaters and it's very hard to change a rice meal to another. I tried replacing my dinner with an oatmeal, and limiting my lunch about a week now, but I dont know if I lose even a pound (I dont have anything to measure my weight). I'm not really that fat but my concern is my chin and my belly. I dont care about my other body parts b/c I'm not really that fat but my chin and belly is really noticeable.

    Anyway, thanks everyone. I'll choose a best answer but I'll extend the question.

    • ANSWER:
      Uh, well first of all, you dont, but for healthy weight loss, i think you will like this.

      And, yes, oatmeal is ok for dinner or a meal. :)
      I do that sometimes too. Just be sure to add stuff like dried fruit, skim milk, or soy milk, chopped nuts, brown sugar, etc... to make it a mroe balanced meal.

      I have a great suggestion for you,
      go to www.mypyramid.gov

      at this website, you can put in how much you eat, your current weight, your goal weight, how much exercise you did, and how many calories you should consume, how many you burned, etc...

      Its great. I use it every day and its very helpful. I suggest start with waking up like a half an hour earlier and go for a walk or jog just to start the day out better. If you have pets, take them for a walk, they will love you even more!!! :)
      I live on the North Shore of Oahu with the best beaches, so i take my dog on the beach every morning for a long beach jog and when she and i get back we both feel better. So, exercise in the morning. Also, during the day, get involved in some kind of organized sport. Such as tennis, a soccer team, a volleyball team, etc... Or sign up for junior life guarding. Go to the pool, ride your bike, just get out and get in cardio. For muscle toning, get 5 pounds weights, and work with them. You dont want to get bulky, but toned.

      Also, crank up the music in the house and just dance full out. Try to find a dance studio that you could take hip hop classes from. You can burn like 600-700 calories in one hour at a hip hop class. I take jazz, and its a work out. At home too, do crunches, pushups, etc... All that jazz.

      Eating healthy is something like this, you can always improvise...
      Breakfast:
      1 whole grain bagel, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. Fruit salad, and 1 cup of skim yogurt. (This may sound like a lot, but its better to start ur metabolism with a big breakfast rather than binging later in the day)

      Lunch: Salad. 2-3 cups of mixed greens. 1 grilled chicken breast. A handful of cashews, avocado (half of a big one, you can have a whole one if its small). 1 cup of other chopped veges such as tomato, cucumber, peppers, etc... Have a glass of skim milk, and top ur salad with salsa. Also, have a banana or an apple, or some kind of fruit.

      Snack: 1 fat free greek yogurt, some berries, and a kashi granola bar.

      Dinner: Grilled salmon, quinoa sauteed in olive oil and garlic, and steamed vegetables. A skim yogurt or glass of skim milk.

      Dessert (optional) have a skinny cow brand ice cream.

      good luck. Please let me know what works for you so I can possibly follow in your steps.

      Also, be sure to exercise. Try to go for intense exercise for like 45 minutes to an hour 5 weeks a day. Also, just work exercise into your day. Park farther away, walk, ride your bike, go to the beach, play volleyball, walk someones dog. Just get outside. Good Luck!!

  8. QUESTION:
    How should I aproach losing 25 pounds in about 1-1/2 to 2 months.?
    Im not going to call myself fat, I'm not. But I am overweight and I want to lose 25 pounds of fat, I don't care about gaining weight from muscle. Lack of exercise is the cause of this, I dont eat that unhealthy, maybe fast food once a month but thats it. So its because I don't play sports anymore and I'm not getting the exercise. If I workout and run 3 miles 5 days a week will I be able to obtain this goal?

    • ANSWER:
      25 pounds in 2 months is a lot to lose. In my experience as well as observations, exercise alone can't help you lose that much weight that fast. Damnit, I really shouldnt be saying this, but the most effective way to lose weight quick is to just eat less.

      I didnt eat very unhealthily either. I was actually eating alot healthier than most of my friends but I was always on the chubbier side; probably from lack of exercise. Although my food content wasnt AWFUL, the amount was probably a little high but not by too much. I'd say in a day 3000 - 3500 calories as opposed to the suggested 2500 for my height and build. That seems like ALOT more but for the average American, very normal.

      Anyways my point is, I got a trainer and all and cut my calorie intake to about 1500-2000 a day and also exercised. I lost some weight; about 15-20 pounds. But it took about 3.5 months. Then over the next year, I gained it back plus about 10 more during college. One day I decided to cut my calorie in take to 900 calories a day. I started losing weight very quickly even without extra exercise. Then I kept cutting until I was eating between 700-900 a day. I lost 30 pounds in 2.5 months. Now I'm back to eating normal. about 2000-3000 calories a day. I kept most of it off. I gained about 8 pounds back during holiday seasons and summer but for the most part, most of it stayed off.

      I think you should really focus on just losing the healthy 2-3 pounds a week. So try for losing 16 pounds in 2 months.

      Although my extreme dieting worked... i can't say it was a good decision. During those two months and then about another month following, I couldnt stand up without getting headrush and dizziness. It happens to all of us but for me, it happened every single time i had any lurching or sudden movement which is ridiculous. I couldnt stay up more than 15 hours a day. I was not a good time.

  9. QUESTION:
    I ate a whole large bacon pizza, I walked about 10 miles today, How much more do I need to do to burn it off?
    lol I'm going to start running 3 miles a day during the week(m-f), is that good enough for about 3-4 pounds of weight loss a week?
    lmao 5 pounds in 7 weeks, I can do that in 1 week if I really tried. Don't leave stupid answers like that.

    • ANSWER:
      WTF!!???? I CAN LOSE 10 POUNDS IN A DAY IF I
      REALLY NEEDED TO....PSHHH.!!!

      If you are serious about losing weight, start training in mma. (mixed martial arts)
      its a group of martial arts including brazilian jiu jitsu, boxing, and muay thai. its an INTENSE workout that gets ur sweat glands pumpin and ur fat deposits burnin.
      I've lost 40 pounds over a period of 6 months of serious training. and im
      very lean and cut as well. Along with that, you can start taking a daily multi vitamin after breakfast and dinner. all this doesnt work in the first 1-2 weeks but after that, the fat starts burning off.
      and dont worry about the pizza. if thats the only thing you ate, you
      wont gain that much. if you eat less than the neccassary calorie intake
      you will lose wieght but if you eat too much calories a day you will gain weight.
      but its ok...tommorows a new day.
      find a sport or gym that will keepp you dedicated and consistant
      and after a week or two, you will start shedding pounds.

      also go check out some fatburner supplements.
      im currently trying universal animal cuts and surprised
      to say its actually working. I was skeptical at first but
      its working.

  10. QUESTION:
    can i lose 10 pounds in 1 month by doing this?
    I cut down on all fat/greasy/sugary foods.
    On monday i play soccer for an hour. On tuesday i play gaelic football for an hour. On wednesday i play tennis for an hour. On thursday i play tennis for an hour. on friday i play tennis for 2 hours. On saturday i play tennis for an hour. On sunday i might play tennis for 1 hour, it depends.
    I also do daily excersises like : sit-ups, push ups, skipping etc.
    could i lose 10 pounds in 1 month by doing this?

    • ANSWER:
      If you are already doing all that exercise and are overweight, it is quite clear your diet is not very good, or you are really over eating each day.

      10 pounds should fly off you if you eat well. Ditching the foods you say may help but what are you replacing the foods you are avoiding with?

      You also don't want to end up eating less calories/energy than you need or you my start to get really tired as a result. Chances are with your diet, before the changes, you were supplying yourself with enough energy to fuel everything. (it's better to be a little overweight and have the energy/strength than be underweight and stressing the body!).

      I assume though, you want to lose the extra weight to look more 'athletic'? Just remember you need foods to give you energy. So eat well during the day to fuel your exercise/s and/or training and then in the evenings, and days off, eat less.

      It's really, really, hard to prescribe a person X amount of calories, and then a macronutrient ratio, ie how much carbs/fats and protein to eat daily, without fully assessing their diet and lifestyle. You could read up on healthy nutrition and sports nutrition to learn more about what to eat and when. In doing so you will learn that it's not necessarily important to lose weight; but by changing the types of foods you eat you can maintain your muscle mass and reduce your body fat, which will result in you staying the same weight but looking *more athletic*.

  11. QUESTION:
    Best way to lose last 10 pounds from home?
    So I have been running since gr.7, I play a bunch of sports but have stopped for 2 years since university...I just run and play badminton frequently. I also do sit-ups, crunches, back exercises and a bit of weight exercises everyday as well from home. What is the best way for me to fully lose 10 pounds within 2-3 months? Or rather to reduce my hip area and lower back? I am 145 and 5'3 with a medium frame. I don't look fat but I would like to look a bit more slimmer...my body is quite toned...so any help? Oh yea and I don't eat junk food at all, and my diet consists of Indian/Italian mostly. I don't eat huge proportions either and never use ghee in any of my cooking either. Ok this is all peace out!
    Oh its not about the weight...my waist is like 33' right now and it was 32' before...I'd like it to be 30'...so any exercises for lower back and waist is appreciated thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Get an exercise ball. Lay on the ball, so that your tummy is on the ball, your legs are behind you and supporting you. Put your hands on the back of your head, sit up style, then raise your body up (crunching back instead of down). This will work out your back. You can also do this holding a weight. For abs, lie on the floor, take the ball, put it between your ankles, raise it up, grab it with your hands, with hands still raised, lower legs, then raise legs, grab ball with ankles, lower arms behind you, repeat, do as many as you can ( I do about 20 per rep, then repeat 3 times). Ofcourse, you can also do crunches, or crunches with legs in the air, or crunches with legs up and right arm reaches for left leg, then do on other side. All this being said, I lost 10 lbs by running 6 days a week, for 1 hr, and I counted calories. 1800 a day, healthy foods only, with a drink at the end of the day, and some chocolate. By including these treats in my 1800 calories, I was able to feel satisfied. I didn't drink or eat chocolate every day, just when I craved a glass of wine, or a martini, or a piece of chocolate (4 squares). Then I used a food scale to weigh everything, so I was very honest. I did this during lent and lost 10 lbs by Easter, and I didn't feel like going crazy at Easter since I allowed myself those "cheats." Now, when I start to feel hungry, I have a piece of fruit, until I can make a meal. The peach and cottage cheese I had, will give me energy for my work out and then I will have lunch. I figure its better than hitting up McDonalds. Good luck!

  13. QUESTION:
    How to lose 10-20 pounds before bikini season?
    ok well im a 14 year old girl, and im in 8th grade. i am over weight; 143 pounds, 5 feet 4 inches tall. im extremely self conscious about my weight and its starting to get to me. all of my friends are pretty and skinny and i always feel like im the 'fat girl'. i do wear bikinis during the summer but only because i don't want people to know how self conscious i am. i used to wear tankinis ( it's like a bikini but instead of your stomach showing there is another piece of the bathing suit fabric covering it.) but of coarse, all my friends would ask me why i wear those and not bikinis. well i want to lose 10-20 pounds by or before bikini season. i would love to lose 20 pounds because that's supposedly the healthy weight according to my doctor. if its not possible to lose 20 pounds i will shoot for 15. i just want to lose as much as i can. i think that when i look at my self in a bikini its not the front of me that bothers me, its more of when i look at myself from the side. i have a big stomach that i would like to get rid of. well i obviously go to school so right now i eat lunch everyday at around 12 in the afternoon. this is usually how i eat during the day;

    i usually skip breakfast because i don't have time
    for lunch i eat what ever my mom packs me (usually a sandwich or a wrap, with a fruit cup, a regular fruit, or a bag or baked chips.)
    when i get home im usually really hungry and i try not to eat but its kind of hard not to. i will eat fruit, chips, matzo, or any kind of junk food.
    for dinner, i eat whatever my mom makes, (pastas, steak, chicken, pork chop, salad, etc.) or ill eat a smart one meal.
    afterwords i also try not to eat anything but i have a sweet tooth so i tend to eat a cookie or something because i have that sweet craving.

    so this is usually my day of eating. and i also play softball and i have practice about 2-3 times a week and we do a pretty good amount of running, plus i am the teams pitcher so that requires a lot of movement and its pretty tiring. i really want to lose weight to look better, and to be healthier. some one help me please? thank you so much!

    • ANSWER:
      Dont ever skip breakfast! Breakfast is the meal that keeps you going. If you eat a breakfast full of fiber and fresh fruit, you will be satisfied until lunchtime, and then some. A healthy breakfast should be something like these:

      A healthy cereal like Special K; any fruit (bananas are great because they are brain food and full of potassium which is energy food) as long as its just fresh, plain fruit; and a glass of low-fat milk.

      A bowl of oatmeal (its actually pretty good) with some cinnamon for flavor; half a grapefruit with a no calorie sweetener on top.

      An egg omelet with peppers, onions, etc. No meat. With this, drink a fruit smoothie. Throw in strawberries, banana, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, anything you have. Its yummy and gives you, like, 2 servings of fruit, at least. Add a dollop of whipped cream on top. It'll satisfy your sweet tooth and its very low-cal.

      For lunch, your meals sound pretty healthy. For your sandwiches, use whole grain bread. It has a ton more fiber and way less calories. (BTW, fiber keeps you fuller longer and keeps your blood sugar even which helps prevent cravings.) Put in white meat like chicken and fish into your sandwiches, and if you like, add lettuce, tomato, etc.

      After 2 or 3 more hours after eating lunch at school, its perfectly normal to be hungry! You can most definitly eat when you get home, but dont gorge on chips or junk food. The best choice is fruit or veggies, of course. If you want something crunchy, eat some lightly salted almonds or cashews. Popcorn is also a really good snack, but beware of "movie theater butter". I use corn kernels and cook my own popcorn on the stove, and only add a little salt on afterwards. Its delicious (I'll never go back to microwave!) and saves hundreds of calories. Plus, its fun!

      Your dinners also sound good. Grilled or baked chicken is a good choice, and fish, especially salmon, are natural fat burners. Pork is good because its a white meat.You should try to have salad every night before or with your dinner, so you wont stuff yourself at dinner. Pasta is okay. Steak is a red meat, which can increase your cholesterol and has some fat. Its okay to eat, but you should have much more white meat than red.

      Having a small dessert isnt the problem with your weight, but it wont help you lose any. I limit myself to 3 desserts a week, and once you get used to it, you realize that you didnt really need those other 4. A good tip is to get in 65% of your calories in before 2:00 PM, because you have more oppurtunities to work it off.

      -Brush your teeth after every meal (you cant do this at school for lunch, but when your home). It sends a signal to your brain telling your stomach that the meal is over.

      -Eat slowly. It takes 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that youre full, so its easy to overeat. Put your fork down between every bite, talk to your family...

      -Drink LOTS of water. Substituting a glass of water for a can of soda (even diet soda) can save hundreds of calories. And dont let fruit juice fool you. Its better than soda, but it has lots of added sugar and other sweeteners. Also, dont think you can get away with Coke Zero or other "no calorie" sodas. Even though it has no calories, its still really bad for you and can ruin your weight loss efforts.

      -Green Tea is really good for you. It has no calories (i know i just dissed coke for this, but this one is good) and green tea has natural antioxidants and fat burners, so by drinking it, your actually losing calories!

      -Weight train. You dont have to bench press 100 pounds, but lifting small weights (5-25 pounds each) builds muscle and increases your metabolism. The higher your metabolism, the faster your body can burn fat.

      -Dont skip meals. This can cause your body to go into starvation mode, slowing your body from burning fat.

      Softball is a great sport, it'll help you out a lot. You sound like you get a good amount of excercise. Running is also probably the best form of excercise you can get. Basically, do those and some pushups, sit ups especially will help your stomach, but remember: there is no spot weight loss. If you want to lose weight, you'll lose weight all over.

      If you have a wii or Kinect, those have great games that get some good aerobic excercise. Wii fit, or any dance game, ones that get you up and moving.

      Be careful with this weight loss, dont overdo it, skip meals etc, but good luck!

      Most importantly, dont get discouraged, and dont be too hard on yourself.

I had to cut back some of the high carb meals I was eating and start to eat 5 - 6 healthy mini meals a day to keep my metabolism high.

    How does one go about losing 10-20 pounds?
    I am a 16 year old girl [5'2", 140 pounds] seeking to lose 10-20 pounds for the summer. I would like an exercise plan and a meal plan but I don't know where to start and how to achieve my goals. As in, what exercises should I do, what foods should I eat or what foods shouldn't I eat. Any help is appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, at your age, you need to make sure you are getting all the valuable vitamins and nutrients needed. As for exercise, the main idea is to sweat. If you're not sweating, you're not losing weight. To avoid spending money on high-tech workout suits and such, just put on heavy/ layered clothing. A nice start would be stationary bike or treadmill at an increasing pace or uphill. A sauna for 30-60 mins at a time can get you a good sweat also. Last, but not least; running. Start out at a brisk walk week one (mon, wed, fri). Week two, move to a slow jog for 1 mile (mon, wed, fri). Week three, move to a brisk jog for 1 mile (mon, wed, fri). If you feel fine after week three, increase your distance, and then your pace. After 6-8 weeks, you should be running 2 miles at a nine minute per mile rate. Because you are attempting to sweat as much as possible during your workouts, MAKE SURE you are hydrating via water AND sports drinks (gatorade, powerade). Eat 4-5 small meals daily versus 3 large meals. Consume as little sweets and carbohydrates as possible. Never eat/drink late at night; not within 2-3 hours of going to sleep. Note: If you are a couch potato, jog in place or do crunches during ALL commercial breaks. You'll be amazed with the results. Also, when doing any cardiovascular activities, try to workout for at least 25 continuous mins. Good luck!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Need to lose 10 pounds!?
    Gained weight when I quit smoking 6 months ago and have also become constapated. I eat pretty heatlhy. I have oatmeal for breakfast, orange and apple for morning snack, salad and sandwhich for lunch, carrots and yogurt for afternoon snack, fish or meat with vegetables for dinner, and granola bar evening snack. Trying to eat more fiber (30-40 grams) and nothing, I only go once a week. I need help, please some advise to lose the weight and with the constapation.

    • ANSWER:

  2. QUESTION:
    How can I lose 50 pounds?
    My prom is May 13th and I want to lose at least 50 pounds by mid April. I need to know what exercises I need to do and foods I need to eat in order to reach my goal. Also what would be a good product to use to get rid of stretch marks?

    • ANSWER:
      Your goal should be to lose 10 lbs a month if you insist on following the weight loss shows this will be 2-3 lbs each week. Which would give you a healthy 40 lb weight loss in time for your prom and who knows you may be satisfied with the way you look! If not you found a good regimen to get the last 10 off to enjoy the summer!

      Stretch marks can only be removed by surgery in most cases they can be faded with a regimen. The best thing to do is exfoliate the areas you're concerned about, and follow up with a cream or oil. I've used Bio Oil which is very effective if you use it as directed I used it 2 x's a day. This will also breakdown the appearance of cellulite in these areas. If your stretch marks are reddish/ purple the exfoliating will help break down the color and irritation in this area. The creams will help restore moisture and vitamins to the skin so the stretch mark won't grow longer

      There are plenty of ways you can lose the weight depending on what you're willing to do & your current activity level. Most people like to dance so I say make a small commitment and get an exercise video do this for 30 minutes a day to condition yourself to working out on some level, then you can consider using equipment, walking on a treadmill is boring unless you're ready to jog or run. As for dieting and portion control if you cook eat lean meats such as chicken, turkey, lamb, and pork the biggest portion of your food should be green vegetables. If you don't cook and have no idea on how to control portions go to the grocery store and purchase a few Healthy Choice meals they usually have a sale 5 for or so invest into portion control, this also helps with impulsive eating. Most of the meals are under 300 calories. Have healthy snacks in between they curb your appetite, fruit, graham crackers, saltines, assorted, low cal ice cream/ ice pops are good too. Drink ice cold water with each meal as it speeds up your metabolism, according to Dr. Oz and my own personal experience!

      Good luck

    How to lose 10-20 pounds quick?
    Any ideas diets worrkoit plans o excisise? I weigh 140 and I'm 5'3@ around that

    • ANSWER:
      Have you considered the Dukan Diet I have read up on it and found that it is very easy to follow, effective, healthy, and ensures long term results. It requires no calorie counting, portioning, or unhealthy starvation and workout routines may be easily added in.The diet itself has been formulated by a doctor who tested it and found it successful on people of every shape, size, and ethnicity.

      The diet consists of;
      Phase One: a pure protein diet (2-7 days)
      Phase Two: Alternating between pure protein and approved vegetables (until desired weight is achieved)
      Phase Three: Consolidation (5 days for every pound lost)
      Phase Four: Maintenance (consume 3 oz of oat bran every day, avoid escalators and elevators, and revert to a pure protein diet once a week permanently)

      If you look it up and its not for you I would just suggest consciously limiting junk and processed foods, opting for whole grains, and getting 30-60 min of cardio and 30-60 min of strength training every other day (or even daily if desired). Also eat three meals a day (breakfast should be the largest and dinner the smallest) plus 2-3 small snacks between meals.

      The details may be found in the published book as well as Dr Pierre Dukans website.

  6. QUESTION:
    How long should it take to lose 50 pounds?
    I'm a 21 year old girl who is 5-4. I've started trying to lose weight by exercising 6 times a week and trying to eat more healthy. I started at the end of january at 195 pounds and have lost 10 pounds in the past month. I'm hoping to lose 50-60 pounds total and was wondering about how long that should take.

    Also, any tips would be great. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      I lost 55lbs not too long ago. I used these tips and found that it is much more effective for a healthy weight lost. At first, I exercised 7 days a week and ate very, very little. I realized I was starving myself and that is not going to help me in losing the amount of weight I wanted without putting my health at risk. I started exercising 5 times a week. About an hour or two a day. I used a Bun & Thigh Roller exercise machine until I reached 135lbs. Then, I done plenty of squats (25 times), lounges (25 times), sit-ups (25 times), push-ups (25-70 times). If you want to do more exercises there are some great YouTube videos from fitness experts giving exercise tips and advice. I had to do the same as I found it was more difficult to lose weight once I reached 135lbs. There are different exercise levels and the more weight you lose the higher your exercise level will become. You have to find exercises that challenges you as the months go by. (Example: One month you do 25 push-ups a day for 5 days a week..the next month you do 35 push-ups a day for 5 days a week..within your third month you exercise 45 push-ups a day for 5 days a week..)

      I drink plenty of water (stayed away from concentrate juices ->they are very high in sugar..and sodas). If you want to drink juice make sure it is all natural and has no sugar or less 200 milligrams of sugar. Stay away from foods that has the ingredient 'High Fructose Corn Syrup.' It is also in juices. Do not eat or drink anything that has it. There are more products on the market today that has 'No High Fructose Corn Syrup' on the front label. Also, stay away from foods that are high in salt and sugar (nothing over 250 milligrams of salt and sugar each product). It will help in the long run because I found out when I ate those foods it was much more difficult for me to lost weight.

      I ate in considerable portion sizes. For example: "Dinner consist of; Baked Chicken drumstick&wing, broccoli, and whole grain wheat rice. Do not eat a lot of it. Eat small portion sizes. Use a teaspoon to measure how much you should eat. (7-9 teaspoons of whole grain wheat rice & 4-6 broccoli stems) For the most part, I usually had a banana w/mixed nuts or an apple w/pomegranate juice for dessert. At times I ate those for a snack when I was still hungry."

      Eat nothing after 6:00pm. You can drink water and/or all natural juice but do not eat anything. If you want to know more about what foods to eat to maintain a healthy weight loss visit Dr. Oz's website. He has plenty of valuable information. While I was exercising I went to Oprah's website because she had an exercise fitness expert give exercise tips most of which I never heard of before. I downloaded the tips and printed them. Till this day I still have them and they help me lose weight quickly. I lost 55lbs within a year..from the ages of 16-17 years old. I am 5'4" tall and 21 years old too. :-) I hope these tips help.

      Take care and God bless you + yours.

  7. QUESTION:
    is it okay to lose weight when you're pregnant?
    My sister in law is about 5 months pregnant and has lost over 10 pounds. She hasent changed her eating patterns, she still eats unhealthy. She has been drinking more water for her, and she sais she walks about everyday. She is a hefty girl (i believe pre pregnancy 312) and now about 300 maybe a little less. Her dr. said since she's been walking that's most likely the reason. But is it okay? Or will it hurt the baby at all or affect the weight/growth of the baby. She's complaining that a women that's 12 days farther along than her has a baby that weighs 13 oz. and her baby 2 weeks ago weighed 8 oz. I told her it's probobly because she smokes and the other lady doesn't. Am i wrong?

    • ANSWER:
      I was 263 when I got pregnant. I lost just over 20 lbs and am sitting at 241 lbs now at 37 1/2 weeks and will be back to my pre-baby weight from before I had my first child 4 years ago after giving birth this time around. Losing weight isn't a bad thing in pregnancy as long as you have the weight to lose. I eat healthier and I'm trying to exercise more. I don't inhibit my consumption of food and I do eat what I want sometimes :) I'm pregnant, not on a diet. The doctors or midwives will monitor the baby and if the baby grows well she'll likely be fine. My baby is just about 7 lbs which is normal. My other two babies were 7, 13 and 7, 11. Your friend is fine and so is her baby. Since she is so big, even eating a bit unhealthy won't hurt her or the baby unless it's drugs or something. She has all that extra weight the baby can feed off, which is the idea my midwives told me when I was concerned I lost so much weight. My cousin lost over 120 lbs when she was pregnant with #4 and went from about 420 to 300! Still a big girl, but baby was fine!

  8. QUESTION:
    Needing to lose 10 pounds by the end of this month?
    I weigh 132 pounds and height 5'7.
    From last week to now I have been eating an apple a day [100 calories]. lost 4 pounds.
    From tomorrow;
    Breakfast: 1 cup of soup
    Lunch: An orange
    Dinner: 1 cup of soup

    How long until I lose 10 pounds? No lectures please :)
    and i will be picking best answer soo :)

    • ANSWER:
      Not a lecture but advice, do not stay on that "diet" long, it will ruin your thyroid and you will can have weight (and a mass of other) issues later in life (That happened to my aunt) Also,when you do start to eat normal again, you will gain more back because your body will be in survival mode from be starved and hoard what you eat.

      I just saw on Dr. Oz yesterday the "Dukan" diet. First 7-10 days, ONLY eat proteins, 1.5 TBLspn of oat bran (high in fiber, not carbs) and nonfat dairy products, DAILY. The people who followed this exactly were losing a pound a day, what your losing and that's alot more food than you're getting now with better nutritional value. Please add a multivitamin to your regimen, preferably 2 times a day. Good Luck to you!!

  9. QUESTION:
    Can I lose 70 pounds in 10 months?
    I'm 15, male, 5'0, and I weigh 188 Ibs
    I want to lose 70 Ibs before the next school year (September) when I start high school. Since 3rd grade I've been the fat kid in class and always picked on until last summer I started to do something about it, and I lost like 4 ibs in a month (I know it's not a lot but It's important to me). I know what to eat my dr. said to have 1,600 calories or less a day and i usually eat less and I have very little junk food in the house. I also NEED to exercise obviously eating healthy alone wont't help enough. I got a gym membership today and
    here is my exercise plan...

    Friday and Saturday nights at the gym for 1 hour,
    20 min treadmill
    20 min elliptical
    20 min weight lifting or other

    Sundays I'll just walk an hour early in the morning and again at evening

    Mon - Thurs
    Mondays and Wednesdays I have phys ed for an hour already so I'll jog for like 15-20 min
    Tuesdays and Thursdays are my yoga day I have a bunch of dvds to exercise off.

    Will eating healthy and following my exercise plan help me lose around 70 Ibs in 9/10 months??
    btw i am a guy the picture and name is my sisters account

    • ANSWER:
      You probably won't lose the whole 70 because your body is still growing. But you can reduce the excess stored fat.
      80% of weight loss is diet.
      You can eat a healthy diet and lose weight.
      You can eat a healthy diet and exercise and lose more weight.
      You can exercise and eat a poor diet and not lose and even gain weight.
      A good healthy diet high in fiber, lean meats, eggs, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, antioxidant foods, healthy beverages and low in added sugar and salt help people lose weight, lower cholesterol, increase energy, improve brain function, lower blood pressure, reduce cancer risk and have a more positive lifestyle!
      You need to eat a lot more food and a lot more fiber!
      Diets that exclude foods from any food group are fad diets and do not lead to permanent weight loss or solve any other health issues.
      First, try to kick your fiber intake to 40 grams of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
      Whatever you do, get your fiber from your food, not from a jar.
      Fruits and vegetables have good fiber in them. A high fiber diet increases the metabolism.
      Try a breakfast cereal with at least 20% of recommended daily allowance of fiber in it. They are usually low in sugar so there is a double benefit. Blueberries or raspberries on top add more fiber and antioxidants. But fresh or frozen, not the kind in syrup.
      Raw nuts are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Avocados are the best.
      Lots of beans, peas, and grains are high fiber. Whole grain breads. Fiber kicks up the metabolism so you actually burn more calories. These foods will give you more gas in the beginning but if eaten daily, the bacteria in the digestive tract will elevate lowering the gas output.
      This will get you on the path for a healthy daily bowel movement. This helps clean the system and aids healthy digestion.
      I know it goes against everything you've heard but eating lots of the right foods will actually help you lose weight!
      Next, take an age appropriate basic daily multivitamin. Don't look at your multivitamin as nutrition but more as an insurance policy. Think of it as filling in the gaps in your daily diet as opposed to a primary source of nutrients.
      You have to drink lots of water to be healthy. But you can disguise it. Fill your glass all the way full with ice before pouring low sugar beverages. Try iced green tea with a splash of orange juice in it for sweet. More antioxidants. Add lemon juice to water for flavor. Slice up a cucumber and float it in pitcher of water. Gives it salty fresh taste. But you must drink up to 100 oz of water daily to help your body get rid of waste and the natural toxins.
      Last, you need to get 7-10 hours of quality sleep depending on your age. All recent sleep studies report a connection between poor sleep and weight gain.
      You must combine a healthy diet with exercise to multiply the benefit. Whether an hour a day in the weight room or just a 30 minute brisk walk every day, the added benefit of a regular exercise program really do increase and accelerate healthy weight loss.

      I lost 30 pounds in 5 months by spending my money at the grocery and gym and have kept it off for two years now. Less than 3% of people that attempt weight loss lose it and keep it off for two years. It is not easy. It is a lifestyle change.
      Good luck and good health.

  10. QUESTION:
    How fast do people generally lose weight on a vegan diet?
    I recently went on what wasexactly basically an anti-vegan diet (Dukan Diet) recommended by Dr.Oz, of low-fat meat and egg whites. And I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. And I'm just curious as to the results most people get from going vegan.

    • ANSWER:
      You are talking about weight loss diets. Veganism is not a weight loss plan. People who lose weight are making their own kind of diet that just happen to be vegan, alternatively people who do not succeed at achieving a healthy vegan diet find they lose weight. What I mean is, veganism takes a lot of research, reading, and planning to do right. If you do not do that, you can easily not be consuming enough, and people find they start losing weight because of poor nutrition, but this is not the same thing as losing weight due to veganism. In all, even though I want to answer your question, I think it does not make a lot of sense to me because it is kind of based on a faulty premise. I do not know how to answer it.

  11. QUESTION:
    How to lose weight fast? 15-20 lbs in 30-50 days?
    Hi there! I'm 5'4.5 and about 130-135 lbs. I have unlimited gym time and am so far going 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours at night? Is this too much? What exercises should I do to optimize and speed up weight loss? Without getting too muscular!

    Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      I was watching Dr. Oz yesterday, and he was talking about a detox program. You can go to his website and learn about it. You can lose 10 pounds in 30 days with it. It's strict, but it's only 30 days and you don't even have to exercise, in fact he warns against to much exercise.

      Or you could just diet. I started my diet 3 weeks ago and I've lost 6 lbs and, I'm not going to lie, ive been slacking a little and I haven't exercised much at all, so if you stick with it, eat healthy and exercise, you will lose more quicker. All I do is watch what I eat and really try to portion my food.

  12. QUESTION:
    Will I lose weight if I...?
    Will I lose weight if I go swimming two days a week, two hours each time; reduce my portions, and stop eating junk food? How long will it take me to lose 10 kilos (22 pounds, I believe?)

    • ANSWER:
      Along with a good exercise program you need to have a good diet. On Dr OZ he mentioned the African Mango. I recently tried it and I lost 15lbs in under a month. I found this website with an article on it http://homeremedycity.com/2014/01/17/lose-weight-naturally-with-african-mango/. There is a link there that takes you the website where you can get the product too.

  13. QUESTION:
    How do I lose weight without my parents knowing?
    I am 13 years old and 130 pounds!! All my shorts are to tight on me so I want to lose about 5- 10 pounds without my parents knowing. How could I do that? Thanks to anyone who answers and only serious answers.

    • ANSWER:
      I honestly doubt they'd trip if you tried to lose such a small amount of weight, but if you really want to keep your weight loss efforts from them, just make some small adjustments to what you already eat. Like if you eat a snack after school every day to hold you over until dinner, try not to.

      I just got an excerpt from a Dr. Oz Show article talking about how drinking water can help people with their weight loss goals, here it is: Mistake No 5:You Don't Drink Enough Water
      The next time you feel hungry, take a big, long drink of water and you may not need to eat. Because the hormones in our intestines that tell us we're hungry are very similar to the hormones that let us know we're thirsty, we're not very good at distinguishing hunger from thirst, which is why we typically reach for food when we should be drinking. "Often hunger pangs are just your body screaming for a little extra H20," said Dr. Oz. And when we're not well hydrated, our metabolism drags. "H20 is essential for burning calories," said Dr. Oz. "Adults who drink eight-plus glasses of water a day burn more calories than those who drink less."

      Dr. Oz's Fix: Drink water before every meal and snack and a few more in between. According to a study done at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, overweight study volunteers who drank a 16-ounce bottle of water before every meal lost 44 percent more weight after 12 weeks than volunteers who didn't drink water before dining. That may be because water drinkers ate about 75 fewer calories when they drank water before their meals, as another Virginia Tech study found. "I carry a water bottle with me wherever I go so I'm constantly sipping," said Dr. Oz.
      If eight glasses a day seems daunting, try this mind trick: Drink from larger bottles, so instead of consuming eight glasses, you're sipping just three and a half bottles. Easy! And there's no reason to always drink it plain. "I completely get that people think water is bland," said Dr. Oz. "In our house, we make water more appealing by adding slices of fruit or a splash of fruit juice to give it a different taste."

      So drink water before meals, cut out after school snacks, or change them to fruit or veggies if they're currently less-healthy.

  14. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:
      Try this book by Doctor Oz, it is called YOU:On a Diet by Mehmet Oz. I was watching his show and this woman lost 100 pounds or more in 10 weeks by following this book. Also try his challenge which is on this link: http://doctoroz.com/challenges/dr-oz-ultimate-diet. Look for healthier recipes that can substitute for the saturated fats and sugars.

  15. QUESTION:
    Tips to losing 1-2 pounds a week?
    I am supposed to be going to Italy in June and I haven't been in years and I am embarrassed about my weight. My goal is to be about 115-120 (I'm only 5'3") So I have about six months to drop about 30-35 pounds what are some tips? I was thinking like 20 minutes on the treadmill daily and 15 on the elliptical and then some exercises to tone up.. any other tips? I am also going to see a nutritionist in February but until then I need a few tips on losing about 10-15 pounds

    • ANSWER:
      OK, maybe you could follow my fitness plan, really simple and easy. I lost about ten pounds last summer in about 4-5 weeks by following it, so here it is:

      EATING HABITS:
      ~eat about 2,000 calories a day. But make sure you don't starve yourself!!!!
      ~Follow the food guide pyramid, and stay away from fatty foods. educate yourself on health facts, too. I recommend listening to Dr. Oz, I'll give you his link below.

      EXERCISE HABITS:
      (you may want to get yourself a pedometer, around only , it counts your steps)

      ~Do about 18,000 steps a day, so each day you will have 8,000 steps that burn fat. You may count the steps you do during fitness activities.
      ~Do fitness activities, such as running, aerobic, etc... I suggest watching FitTV, or renting a fitness movie and playing it 2-3 times a week. Try not to go a day without exercising.
      ~Don't over exert yourself, but don't give up easily.
      ~you may not see any results in a week or two, but trust me; your body will be burning fat!

      again i highly suggest getting a fitness video, and watching what Dr. Oz has to say. Don't just take my word for it; he's helped many people and is even Opera Winfrey's health specialist. Its his job to help people lose weight and be Healthy. Good Luck!

How to Lose 10 Pounds Counting Calories

Ask nearly anyone the secret to long-lasting weight loss and youll likely hear some variation on calories in versus calories out. Seems pretty obvious then, that in order to lose weight successfully, you have to start by knowing how many calories to consume.

Heres the problem: Unless you have access to a science lab (and know how to use it) your calorie counts will rarely be accurate. Portion sizes, substitute ingredients, eating out, and a variety of other factors make knowing the true number of calories in your meal nearly impossible. If youre not tracking calories accurately, you can quickly fall victim to the false sense of security that causes so many calorie-counting dieters to fail. You think youre consuming only x number of calories, but in reality the number is much, much higher.

Inaccurate measuring and counting aside, you also need to keep in mind that not all bodies are the same. What works for you will not work for someone else. Metabolisms vary; age, gender, and genetics play a role. With all those variables, its easy to see that simply pulling a number out of the air isnt the answer to lasting weight loss.

Lets Hear it for Individuality

Discovering the ideal amount of energy your body needs to remain healthy while still losing excess weight begins by measuring your unique metabolic baseline. A lot of factors go into this calculation, including your age, current weight, and normal activity levels. Unfortunately, most of us dramatically overestimate the amount of food our bodies need and at the same time underestimate the caloric impact of the foods we eat. What does all this mean? It means that we eat beyond the bodys ability to use those calories, and then dont give it the right signals to mobilize fat for energy.

Body type and gender both have a big impact on your metabolism as well. The larger you are, the more energy it takes just to keep you moving. Theres a reason weight lifters, for example, can consume so much energy without getting fat they need it just to keep their bodies functioning. In addition, men typically require more fuel than women, tall people need more than short people, and athletes need more than couch potatoes. Thats just how were made.

The biggest problem with counting calories is that we live in a carbohydrate-dominated world, so the easiest way to cut back is to greatly reduce or even eliminate carbs from our diet. When youre counting calories, bread, rice, and pasta are often the first things you swear to avoid. And sure, you get some weight lossbut then it all comes back right?

No One Right Answer

So how many calories should you consume if you want to lose weight? Thats a bit like asking how many hairs are on your head. Each body is different, so there is no one single answer thats right for everyone. The only way to know for sure is to get some help with calculating all the points above and creating a plan thats unique to your body, your lifestyle, and your weight-loss goals. You also need access to a system that doesnt require counting calories.

    • ANSWER:
      losing 10 pounds in a month would be considerd fairly unhealthy by most medical professianls. Healthy weight loss (the kind of weight loss that is recomened and most likely to stay off) is between 1 to 2 pounds per week. Most people averaging 1 pound per week. I am not sure what your bodys energy needs are (often calculated by your weight, height, age, and energy expendature.... ie active, sedatatry, etc.) but most women need between1500- 2000 calories a day. A pound of fat is made of 3,500 calories. Therfore most professionals recomened you reduce your calorie count by 500 calories per day so that you can reach a goal of 1 pound of weight loss per week (500 calories x 7 days = 3,500 calories lost or 1 pound). Weight loss is simply a balance of "energy in" in vs. "energy out". Creating an "energy debt" is what causes weight loss. However, its important to remember that your body needs aproxamtily 1000 calories a day for basic life functions, i.e. breathing, metabolic functions, etc. So you should never dip below a 1000 calories a day unless overseen by a doctor or registered dieticien.

      If you would like to excercise so that you can eat more freely, you may do so. Cardio workouts (jogging, biking, walking, ect.) are much more effective at burning fat then strenghth gaining excercises (lifting weights). Most cardo equipment (ie treadmill), will give you a reading of calories burned based on information entered regarding age and weight. You can use the number of calories burned determine the amount of calories you can consume for the day. For instance: If body needs 2000 calories a day, and you are trying to loose a pound a week, you should consume aproxamitaly 1500 calories a day. If you burn 250 calories a day with excercise, then realy you can eat 1750 calories a day and obatain the same amount of weight loss.

      In regards to losing belly fat, there are some things that you should be aware of. The first being that there is no weight loss techinique which is able to target weight loss in one specfic area. Each persons body is built differntly, and therfore losses weight differntly.Some peolple will lose weight in their face and legs first and their belly last, while others lose weight in their belly first and their legs last. The most important thing to remember when losing weight is that it takes time to get desired results. Also, since you have had children there are several things you may not be aware of. One being that during pregnancy your abdonimal muscles are stretched, and after birth they return to their previous size but lack the previous muscle tone. This can make your tummy appear as if it has more fat than it actualy dose due to the loseness of the muscules. Doing abdominal workouts can help eleavate this problem and help make your stomach appear flatter.

      On a personal note, I know that losing weight can be tuff, it requires lots of restraint, dedication, motivation. The beging is always the hardest because you have to find a way to fit time into your schedule for excercis and cooking or shopping for healthy meals. I hope what ive said is helpful, and goodluck!!!

  3. QUESTION:
    how can i lose 10 pounds in 2 monthes?
    I'm 5'8 and 115 lb.
    My normal weight is around 105 or 110.
    I gained lots of fat since I quit regular sports.
    What should I eat?
    What kind of exercise?

    • ANSWER:
      Losing 10 pounds in 2 months is a reasonable goal, but since you really don't need to lose weight, it might not be a reasonable goal for you. Focus on healthy life style, eating well, and being active. Here are a few ideas.

      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. It will help increase your metabolism and make you feel and look better in so many ways. 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. A couple of the links I've included explain how. Invest in a good weight training book for beginners. The Dummies series actually has quite 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 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.

      Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc. Here are a few helpful links.

    My family is going to Mexico in January, 3 months from now. I would like to lose 10-15 pounds. I work out 5-6 times a week, cardio and weights. I tend to eat really well but end up sabatoging myself with binges. I have had a eating disorder, gone to extremes and would like to do it the right way, so that I can keep it off. Can someone help me out?

    • ANSWER:
      First, for all of the "quick and easy" weight loss diet pill suggestions, remember, if something sounds too good to be true... it probably is, particularly if you have to pay for it.

      On Yahoo!Answers I find certain questions being asked repeatedly which is simply a reflection of new people participating. A couple of common questions amount to "How do I lose weight," or more specifically, "How do I lose abdominal fat?" I have gotten very positive responses from my answers when I paused to reply (and now beginning to get "It works!" emails that are very gratifying. I like helping people)... so have recently decided to put a good solid answer on my Yahoo!360 Blog (September 10) that I can point people to. These are my thoughts as a physician and athlete.

      Don't target losing more than about 2 lbs per week. If you try to lose faster, your body will go into "starvation mode" and get very stingy about burning calories while at the same time very efficient about storing any calories that you do provide. And it will make you feel awful.

      There is no site specific way of losing fat... the old myth about working your abs to burn belly fat isn't true. To get rid of love handles, you need to lose overall fat. That happens with exercise and watching your diet. More on that below.

      The most effective way to lose fat is aerobic exercise in the "moderate" fat-burning range, ideally first thing in the morning before you eat. When you wake your body is ready to burn fat and your levels of growth hormone are highest at that time. Later in the day it can take up to 30 minutes just to put your body into a fat-burning mode.

      Another overlooked way to burn fat is by lifting weights. Skeletal muscle has very high caloric needs... almost twice that of adipose (fat) tissue. Put on a little muscle and you will burn calories all day even at rest. Be aware that skeletal muscle weighs more, so with this approach you may see your weight increasing while your body fat is melting away. Not realizing this often stresses folks who think they should be losing weight as a measure of fitness. Forget the scale, look in the mirror and you will be happy.

      To lose a pound of fat, you need to eliminate about 3500 calories. You can do this by burning more with exercise or by modifying your diet to reduce intake. If you do a Google search on say, "swimming calories" you will quickly find a website with tables of calories burned for a given exercise. You can use such lists to estimate how many calories you are burning up with your routine.

      For diet, keep a diary for a couple of weeks counting calories, grams of protein, and grams of fat intake. It is easy with online sources of nutritional information (type the name of the food and calories into the Google search engine) and packaging labels. That will let you quickly figure out where the fat is coming from in your diet.

      Fat gives you 9 calories per gram. So take the number of grams of fat, multiply by 9, then calculate what percentage the fat calories are of your total daily calories. Restricting the calories from fat to about 20% of your total intake is ideal for a maintenance diet... that isn't overly restrictive. Of note, you need some fat in your diet. For instance, the body uses fat to produce hormones. Once you have a picture of how to modify your diet, you can drop the diary and just go back to it occasionally if you are wanting to tweek things further.

      There is a subset of questions that goes further and asks about "How to get a six-pack?" The answer is the same. Six-packs are 20% abdominal exercise and 80% diet. There is one caveat... abdominal muscles will form in the position that you work them, so be certain to pull them tightly toward your spine while doing crunches, etc. Also, during most lifting, the "core is active" which means that you should be stabilizing with contracted abs then too. Fail to do this and the abs will form, but bulging outward and the result is not attractive.

      If you are trying to build muscle as a way to lose fat, then you may need to increase total calories and specifically your protein intake. I target about 0.8 g of protein per pound of body weight each day when actively building. That is far more protein than most people need in their diets.

  5. QUESTION:
    I need to lose 10 pounds in 5 weeks, any advice?
    I want to lose ten pounds in five weeks because i am going on vacation and i want to be less flabby for the beach. i am planning on changing my calorie intake from 2,000+ to about 1,300. I also am planning on working out for about an hour a day. Some problems I have are determining how many calories are in some meals, like my school lunch and my moms dinner. theres no nutrition facts on those things. any advice? and i need tips too! thanks!
    i would do weight watchers or some program but im tight on cash.

    • ANSWER:
      Losing 10 lbs. in 5 weeks requires a calorie deficit of 7,000 calories per week, or 1,000 calories per day. Cutting 1,000 calories from your daily diet might sound impossible, but it's really not if you take the time to analyze nutritional weak spots and make substitutions of healthier, lower-calorie foods throughout the day. These tips will get you started on your weight loss journey and make losing 10 lbs. in 5 weeks very possible.

      Difficulty:
      Moderately Easy

      Instructions

      1

      Keep a detailed food log of everything you eat for 1 week. This is important because before you can reduce your calories by 1,000 each day, you need to know how many calories you are consuming now. Using an online food log resource such as www.fitday.com or www.sparkpeople.com can make calorie counting much easier.
      2

      Eliminate any beverages containing calories from your diet. A 12 oz. can of soda usually contains about 150 calories. If you drink two or three cans of soda a day, you could easily cut 300 to 450 calories from your diet by switching to no calorie alternatives such as unsweetened tea, sugar-free drink mixes, water or coffee.
      3

      Stop eating foods with no nutritional benefit. These are foods which are high in calories but do absolutely nothing good for your body. Examples are soda, cookies, candy, ice cream and potato chips. One cup of ice cream can contain anywhere from 200 to more than 500 calories. Depending on the size of bowl you use, it's possible to eat 1,000 calories of ice cream without even realizing it. In this case, dropping the ice cream could be all you need to do in order to lose 10 lbs. in 5 weeks.
      4

      Say no to deep-fried foods. Frying foods is a great way to completely destroy a perfectly healthy, nutritious food and turn it into a high calorie nightmare. For example, 5.4 oz. of boneless, skinless chicken breast has 200 calories, while a 5.4 oz. original recipe chicken breast from KFC has nearly 400 calories. That's almost double the calories for the same amount of food.
      5

      Increase your vegetable intake in order to feel full while losing weight. Raw spinach and cooked broccoli are foods that you can eat large amounts of without worrying about calories. Use vegetables to fill you up in place of higher-calorie foods. For example, pasta isn't exactly unhealthy, but it is high calorie, so substitute half of your normal serving with vegetables. Replacing just 1 cup of pasta with 1 cup of cooked broccoli at dinner will save you nearly 200 calories.
      6

      Consider protein supplements to help curb your sweet tooth. Protein powders have come a long way in terms of taste over the years. A nightly chocolate protein shake mixed in a blender with a few ice cubes can taste an awful lot like a chocolate milkshake, especially to someone on a calorie-restricted diet. Just be sure to count the calories in the protein powder along with everything else you eat in order to stay on track and lose that 10 lbs. in 5 weeks.

  6. QUESTION:
    Will losing 10 pounds make a difference in my appearance?
    I'm female, 5'1, 186, in high school. I know I'm overweight but will losing 10 pounds make a difference in my appearance, especially my thighs?

    • ANSWER:
      Losing 10 lbs a month is a good and safe target. Any faster weight loss is likely to be temporary only and in most cases you regain it all.

      Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, squats, brisk walking and power walking all help for weight loss but dieting helps more.

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

      The healthy DASH diet can help you lose weight safely and effectively, lower your cholesterol and lower your blood pressure.

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

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

      Diet Tips:

      *Drink half your weight in ounces of water daily
      *Stay away from all "white" foods (they are simple carbs that turn into glucose easily) - bread, pasta, white rice, white potatoes.
      *Eat three meals a day and 3 snacks a day.
      *Don't eat anything 3 hours before going to sleep.
      *Don't eat any fast food
      *Shop around the perimeter of your market. Stay away from packaged foods.
      *Take a good multi-vitamin, omega-3, CoQ10, and a good antioxidant every day.
      *Do not count calories. It's a myth. The body counts nutrition

    • ANSWER:
      You can lose 10 pounds a week in a natural way - without spending hundreds of dollars for diet pills. Keep in mind that, you don't need any intensive exercise such as sit up, gym, jogging or aerobics to lose 10 pounds within a week.

  8. QUESTION:
    How many calories should I eat to lose 10 pounds?
    I'm a 16-year-old girl and I fluctuate between 150 and 155 pounds. I like to think that I'm not fat and that most of my weight is from muscle and because I have a big bone structure, however I feel that I'm getting a little chubby and I'd like to tone up for the summer.
    I know that exercise is a key ingredient in losing weight and I'm planning on working out, but I also hear that cutting down on calories helps a lot. I eat a normal amount and a somewhat normal amount of junk food so I would assume that my daily intake of calories is average. What is the amount that I should cut it down to in order to lose weight instead of maintaining the same weight of 150 to 155 pounds?
    Keep in mind that I'm not an adult and that weight loss is typically different for teenagers than it is for adults.. thanks in advance?

    • ANSWER:
      Um well right now, as an average teenager that eats junk, you probably eat about 2,500-3,000 cal's a day. You want to cut this back to about 1,500 or 1,000 cal's a day, and exercise daily. I suggest going to the gym about 3-5 times a week and on the days you don't go walk or run around your neighborhood for a good 20 minutes. Doing this you should be able to use 10 pounds quickly, and healthily in maybe a few months..or less. Depending on how you lose weight.

      Also remember that you don't necessarily need to count your calories...all you really have to do is cut back. Take smaller portion sizes, snack less and with healthier foods, and don't take seconds! Sugary drinks, ahem soda, are also realllyyy unhealthy and if you gave up those and only drank water and juices you'd lose weight faster and even more. (believe me I did this in summer and literally lost 10 pounds! And I never went back to gross sodas and feel a lot better than I did when I drank them.)
      Good luck.;)

  10. QUESTION:
    How can I lose 10 pounds or more for 20 or less days?
    I'm a 16 year old girl weighing 136. 2 pounds with height of 5'6. please help me. i want to wear a very pretty dress for my birthday and all occasions. ill really appreciate it. thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      If you want to lose 10 pounds IN 20 days, forget it. You're not going to do it unless you have a whole lot of water weight. That loss would be equivalent to a half pound a day or 3.5 pounds in a week. The most you could expect to lose without going into "starvation" mode is about a pound a week and that will slow your metabolism, making rapid loss impossible. Crashing like you want to is not only going to be bad for your health but it's almost guaranteed you'll gain the weight back once you stop starving yourself.

      Here are some factoids about dieting which may help you lose those extra pounds in a sensible way.

      - You can't spot reduce. That's a myth. When you're on a fat loss diet, your body will take the fat off where it wants to and not necessarily where you want it to. Generally, the body removes fat first from where it put it on last and visa-versa.

      - The only effective way to diet is to count calories. The fact is, if you want to lose weight and keep it off, you're going to have to learn to count calories (Ok, Weight Watchers calls them "points"...that's just to keep their people in their program. It's still calories.). It takes some time but soon you'll learn to make good guestimates of your daily intake. And, if you're not losing or maintaining, you will want to take a look at your diet and make the necessary adjustments. Here's a good website for finding out how many calories various foods produce: http://nutritiondata.self.com/ .

      - If you take in fewer calories per day than you burn, you'll have to burn fat. It's that simple. An average adult burns about 2000 calories per day minimum. So, in theory, if you take in only 1500 calories per day, you'll burn 500 calories per day in fat (your numbers may vary somewhat). Because a pound of fat will produce about 3500 calories of energy, a 500 cal/day loss will result in a loss of about a pound per week.

      - It's never been easier to shed fat. Here's an excellent website to help you keep track of your calorie intake. It has a lot of helpful features too including tools to help you calculate how many calories you burn per day, a calories counter, etc. Check it out. http://www.myfitnesspal.com/

      - Eat smart. It should be obvious that if you eat foods which are low in calories/ounce, you'll be able to eat more food. So, eat smart. Avoid rich foods, foods high in fats and sugar, alcohol, etc. There are plenty of good frozen meals so don't think you have to prepare all of your own meals. Try to squeeze in some fresh fruit and veggies each day but be careful about those fruits. They can be very high in sugar and ruin an otherwise good diet. Just because something is consider to be a healthful food, doesn't mean that more is always better. Here's a great website, courtesy of your federal government, which will help you understand nutrition. http://www.nutrition.gov/nal_display/index.php?info_center=11&tax_level=1

      - Crash digesting doesn't work. When you "crash" diet, trying to lose fat quickly, the body will counter your attempt by slowing your metabolic rate so you store fat more readily. However, because you are losing and can't store fat, the result is simply a slowing in the rate of fat loss...what is called "hibernation mode" or "starvation mode". When this happens, you need to stop dieting to allow your body to adjust to a normal diet again. Losing too much, too soon is counterproductive which is just another reason to

      - Make it for life. Dieting properly is a matter of learning how to eat optimally and then changing your eating habits to conform to what you've learned. Dieting should not be about losing some pounds so you can go back to your old bad habits. Because your old bad habits are the reason you need to lose weight now, it should be obvious why you need to diet for life!

      - Don't give up your guilty pleasures. A sensible diet can include fast food and some of your favorite guilty pleasures when done right. So, just keep the calories per month in the optimal zone, enjoy some of your special treats from time to time, and you'll be in control of your weight/fat situation and still be able to eat some of your birthday cake or comfort foods.

      There is plenty more to learn about diet, exercise, and fitness and you can find much of it at the US National Institute of Health website: http://www.nih.gov/ and http://kidshealth.org/teen/

      The NIH Website is a great jumping off place for professionally reviewed information resources. Use it. Learn. Fitness begins with your brain.

      Good luck!!

    and also how can i grow taller? i feel like i'm really short..
    SO PLEASE HOW CAN I LOSE TEN POUNDS?

    • ANSWER:
      Losing any amount of weight requires a life change and a diet change. There are certain foods that you are going to need to cut out or at least eat in moderation. Also you are going to want to incorporate exercise into your daily lifestyle. It is very easy to make these changes, and once you start noticing the weight coming off it will motivate you even more.

      Step 2
      Stay away from any crash dieting or other unhealthy ways of losing weight. Do not fast, because once you eat you will start to gain it all back. Depending on the starting weight that you are at now, will help determine the amount of weight you will lose. Of course a person that has more weight to lose then another will drop more pounds the first few weeks.

      Step 3
      The best way to lose weight, no matter what the amount that you are trying to lose, is to do the old fashioned way ~ Exercise and Diet ~ We all want a magic way of dropping pounds, but taking a pill or fasting only have their downfalls.

      Here are some helpful tips to lose weight the safe way....

      Step 4
      * Stop eating sugary foods. Just dropping the sugar from your diet can help you lose weight quickly. Make sure that you stay away from it all together if you want to lose weight quickly. This means no sugar in your coffee, on your cereals, or eating that candy bar!

      * Cut the carbs from your diet. Carbohydrates turn into sugar inside our body's and makes you hold onto body weight and fat. Omitting carbs from your diet can help you drastically drop the unwanted pounds. These days there are many alternatives to diets without carbs that are tasty and nutritious.

      * Increase fiber into your diet.

      * Incorporate fruits and vegetables into your diet.

      * Make sure you eat your dairy items. You can choose to have low fat or even fat free milks and yogurt's.

      Step 5
      * Watch your portion sizes! Many people have no concept of the amount of food that hey should be eating. Here are some helpful tips about portion sizes...
      3 ounces of meat, fish, chicken, etc. is about the size of the palm of a woman's hand or a deck of playing cards.
      An ounce of cheese is about the size of your thumb.
      A teaspoon of butter is the about the size of your thumb tip.
      Learning the correct portions that you should consume can greatly improve your weight lose.

      * Stay aways from fried foods.

      * Watch the calories. They count when you are trying to lose weight. Stick to a diet within a certain range of calories consumption ideal for you.

      Step 6
      * Exercise! Many of us may feel that we simply do not have the time to incorporate exercise int your busy lifestyle. That is just an excuse! There are many ways to get the exercise that you need. When you are at work take the stairs instead of the elevator, or park a little farther then normal so you walk farther. Instead of going out to the movies where you just sit, do something physical like bowling, golfing, dancing, etc. Every extra bit of exercise helps!

      Remember that any diet that promises you a fast and easy way to lose weight without even trying, is a fake! They are relying on the hopeful ones that want to believe there is a miracle cure to lose weight out there to get themselves rich. They are selling you a fantasy and that s the bottom line.

      Step 7
      It takes work and commitment to lose weight and nothing less. Once you start to make these changes to your diet and include exercise you need to be consistent. It will all pay off when you are losing weight the healthy way and your friends and relatives that are still trying all the new so called "breakthroughs" on the market are still struggling.

      Step 8
      You need to focus on the positive changes that you have done and if you slip up once is awhile just know that its O.K. Focus on the positive and not the negative. Remember to reward yourself with a day off every so often to help keep you motivated and determined.

    • ANSWER:
      It will be even easier for you since your're already skinny. All you have to do is eat less, count your calories and eat about 1000 or less everyday. Stay away from fatty foods obviously, drink a lot of water (helps weight loss), and do a lot of intense exercises everyday to burn off even more calories (fat). Here's a list
      competitive basketball- burns 500 calories/ hr
      running/ jogging- burns 500 calories/ hr
      And if you really hate bball/ running then just play sports for 2 or more hours everyday.
      Follow these instructions and you will lose about 10lbs in a month.

  14. QUESTION:
    I want to lose 5-10 pounds in five days?
    I have cheerleading tryouts in five days and I really need to lose pounds if I want to be a flyer, which is the person on top.
    I don't want to hear that there is no healthy way, or something like that, I just want to know how.

    Also, I heard about a juice fast, where you drink just juice for three days. The problem is, I only have really sugary juice boxes from Minute Maid. And type of juice I can get at the grocery store that anyone could recommend?

    • ANSWER:
      That is impossible to do! But..
      You could lose about 10 lbs in 2 weeks. Dont become anorexic!!

      Go to the gym in your spare time or::

      Here's some weight loss tip's which you can do everyday:

      - Exercise 6 to 7 days a week.

      - And try to break your workout into two different sessions, this gives your metabolism a jolt.

      - Drink 6 to 8 cups of water a day. And try to drink ice cold water, it burns more calories.

      - Take enough vitamins, especially ones that promote weight loss (such as 1800 mg. of Fish Oil, Vitamin B Complex, Co-enzyme Q-10, ect. Do your research).

      - Drink green tea or take green tea pills ( it's been shown to speed up your metabolism).

      - For your metabolism's sake, eat within 1 hour of waking up and don't eat 3 hours before you go to bed.

      - Try a vegan or vegetarian diet (it worked for me :D).

      - Drink 12 oz. of warm lemon water (use the juice of 1/2 a lemon) with a little sea salt every morning. This will detoxify your body and make your skin look amazing.

      - Or, if giving up meat just isn't your thing, just count calories. Try to have around 1200 a day.

      - Try to avoid white, bleached, or enriched flour.

      - Stay away from high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils.

      - Eat every 2 to 4 hours to keep your metabolism going.

      - Eat 5 to 6 small meals a day to keep your metabolism up.

      - Try to get 6 to 8 hours of sleep. When your body is deprived of sleep your appiteite increases by 15%.

      - Sugar and artificial sweeteners are the devil. If you have a sweet tooth, grab some fruit.

      - Avoid all junk food, fast food, and fried food.

      - Try only drinking water, tea, and black coffee. There are so many hidden calories in drinks.

      - Eat whole grain foods and healthy fats (like olives, avacados, nuts, ect) and stay away from refined or "bad" carbs.

  15. QUESTION:
    I need to lose 10 pounds?
    Im soo self concious. Ive gained weight after months of emotional overeating. My long term goal is to lose 20 pounds. I only drink water, no fast food candy etc. I eat tuna fish oatmeal turkey and tuna sandwiches. Today I had a yogurt for breakfast and tuna sandwich for lunch. I also go to the gym and do cardio for 30-40 minutes. How long will it take to lose the 10 pounds? And one more question. Should I eat anything else today? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there!
      10 pounds is not much weight to lose- it won't be hard for you to lose this amount if you put your mind to it. Remember weight loss doesn't happen over night or over a week it takes a while to see results. I have lost over 30 pounds in about 6 months of lots of gym and eating clean for most of the time. In terms of "how long will it take me?" question I would recommend this calculator to you here is the link http://www.losertown.org/eats/cal.php it will calculate when you will reach a certain weight by a certain date based on your caloric intake :) Its not completely accurate but it will give you a good estimate.
      What you ate today actually sounds too little if anything. Try counting calories for a few days to have a rough estimate of how much you're eating. Try keeping your calories over 1200 for a day. Have something healthy for dinner- I love egg white omelettes loaded with veggies with turkey bacon on the side. Tonight I am having fish and veggies!
      Make sure you eat clean foods (google eating clean plenty will come up) and don't restrict your calories too low- That will just end up in you most likely bingeing and then a bunch of other problems.
      Good Luck with the weightloss!!!! Remember that YOU can do this. Its possible. :) If you believe it you'll achieve it haha
