Fat Loss For Idiots Diet Plan

Written By: admin - Aug• 06•12

By: FitNRG.net

For many women, having a flat tummy is a major challenge. With age, metabolism slows down, and your body begins to carry more fat. However, there are exercises that you can perform to flatten your tummy, and get your waistline back. While there are some major physical differences between men and women, but when it comes to burning fat, losing weight, and doing excercises for a flat tummy, much of the same principles of fat loss apply to everyone.

I will tell you now that the best tummy exercises for women are not abdominal exercises such as crunches, leg raises, or ab twists. Nope. The best tummy exercises for women are compound exercises that work to build muscle and strength. These exercises include squats, lunges, deadlifts, military presses, and so on. Most women avoid any type of strength training exercises fearing that they will develop bulky, masculine muscles.

So you don't want to build overly big muscles? But you want a flat tummy and a tone body though, correct? Building lean muscle mass is one of the best ways to burn fat and get a toned mid section - for men and women. You should not worry either, about building "over-sized" muscles from strength training. There are physical limitations to how much muscle you can build naturally.

Abdominal exercises work to train your abdominal and oblique muscles; however, you can do ab crunches all day, and it still won't do much to get rid of your tummy fat. Simply doing exercises that target the stomach muscles will not specifically target to burn off fat from your tummy. You cannot spot reduce. The only way to truly burn body fat and get a flat tummy is through a combination of strength training, cardio exercises, and a good diet and nutrition program.

Aside from strength training and cardio exercises, you need to have a healthy diet. The only way to lose weight is to create a slight calorie deficit on a daily basis, and you can achieve this by slightly reducing your calorie consumption and by increasing your activity level to burn off more calories. One diet program many users have had success with is the fat loss for idiots diet plan, which is based on calorie shifting principles. The purpose of calorie shifting is to help keep your body working at a higher metabolism, leading to fat loss.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet Program: Any success?
    I've been looking for a healthy eating plan and I found out about this diet program today called Fat Loss 4 Idiots. Although the name is a little degrading, I was wondering if anyone's tried it and if it actually works. I know that it involves a personal diet plan, and even though it is personal, can someone give me a sample of what this diet told them to eat? I just want to get a feel for if this is worth forking out twenty dollars. Thanks!

  4. QUESTION:
    Does anybody have feedback on the diet plan called Fat Loss for Idiots??
    This is not a "diet". It's an education uncovering myths and eating in cycles....curious if anybody has any feedback from their own personal use.

    • ANSWER:
      It sucks. I am sure if you could actually finish it you would lose weight but it is quite ridiculous and very hard to stick through. I think I made it 3 or possibly 4 out of 11 days! It is very repetittive! I would rather just eat healthy and excercise!

  5. QUESTION:
    Anyone out there on the Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet??
    Does it require you to keep a food journal. It says that people who kept one lost twice the weight.

    Also, how long does it last? Does it generate a menu for you EVERY 11 days, or do you have to purchase another one at the end of the 11 day period?

    And which one is the best to buy? Package 1 or Package 2???

    Package #1: Includes The Fat Loss 4 Dummies On-line Diet Generator & Diet Handbook for just . This is the basic system that's designed to help you lose 9 lbs in only 11 days, without having to buy expensive prepackaged foods or go to embarrassing meetings like some diet plans. And that's a one time cost!

    Package #2: Includes The Fat Loss 4 Dummies On-line Diet Generator & Diet Handbook , PLUS "Beyond Calories", For Just an extra .95!
    What is Beyond Calories? Beyond Calories reveals a different way to lose weight using H. S. FOODS -- and a few other Dieting Tricks and Secrets. (You'll learn about "H. S. FOODS" if you Add-On this product.) BC also shows how to increase your total number of meals while boosting weight loss, so you'll lose even more. It's considered a but when added to the Diet Generator is just .95 extra, as part of Package #2 . . . which is what the majority of our readers purchase.

    I want to go with #1 cause I don't want that extra I don't have it right now. Does that mean I wont loose the weight?

    Thanks for all you help! It is GREATLY appreciated. :)
    This is one of a hundred sites on this diet. EVERYONE says it works, and I just found out the is for 90days!! WAY CHEAP! That is great and I am serious about starting tomorrow.

    I just want info about THIS diet please. Thanks for the tips but I have already purchased this and I just need info on ..this..diet

    • ANSWER:
      Fad diets never work. They result in a yo-yo pattern of weight loss and weight gain and you end up heavier and less healthy than when you start.

      If you are serious about weight loss, you should check out a book by Dr. Dean Ornish. He is a heart specialist who promotes a very healthy life style change. I follow a more extreme regime eliminating the following from my diet, and I've never felt better:

      Salt
      Sugar and sugar substitutes
      All sodas including diet
      Coffee including decaf coffee
      Refined carbohydrates including white bread and white rice
      Meat
      Fish
      All oils (including the good kind except for fish oil tablets)
      Dairy products
      Egg yokes (Egg whites are pure protein and very good)
      Alcohol (all)

      You must read labels carefully, because low fat foots often have sugar. Low sugar foods often add fats. Salt is pervasive in canned and frozen products. You are better off just avoiding restaurant foods and "corporate foods" that are preprocessed. Just eat vegitables, beans, brown rice, tofu, fruit, and other healthy foods. You will learn to love the taste of fresh foods without added salt and fat. The result is a life-long pattern of eating that prevents cancers, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. The pay off is that you feel better after just a week, although you may feel lousy the first couple days. Dean Ornish has a less severe dietary recommendation, however, I found going to the extreme to be easier to follow. This is a life-long change.

      In addition, after a week of a healthy diet, you will want to ease into an aerobic exercise program that will lead to one hour of aerobic exercise five days per week. Look up aerobic exercise for more information.

      Finally, it is extremely important that you get adequate sleep of 8-9 hours per day. If you are not sleeping deeply, you need to find out why, because lack of sleep can cause a ravenous apetite. (Research Sleep Apnea for details and check with your housemates to see if you are snoring. That's one symptom of sleep apnea, but you will never hear your own snores.)

  8. QUESTION:
    Fat Loss 4 idiots? DON'T DO IT!! I've been on it for 11 days, and have only lost 3 lbs!!!?
    My wife and I thought we'd start a diet plan to loose some belly fat, etc. I'm 35 years old, and lead an active lifestyle. The diet plan of choice, "Fat Loss 4 Idiots". Well, I believe that you have to be an idiot to buy into this "diet plan". This was an actual day's meal plan: Peanuts and walnuts for a meal?? Really?? Turkey slices and Orange Roughy for another meal?? Third meal: a bowl of pinto beans?? Finally, shrimp and boiled eggs for your final meal?? Ewe!

    GROSS!!! Basically, never eat until you're full. That's the over all plan. DUH! Ask yourself, "Is giving someone online a good diet plan?? I might lose a pound or two because I'm just sick that SOMEONE out there has my and all I have is a meager 3 lb. loss, probably all water weight, and an uneasy feeling in my belly from eating all these crazy food combinations. GASTRO-INTESTINAL NIGHTMARE!!!

    I feel like such an idiot!! (no pun intended) Anyone out there know how to get your money back

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sorry for your experience, but your post is a classic example of why it's important to research, research, research weight-loss programs before trying them, and especially before forking over your hard-earned money.

      Research has shown over and over that short-term diets do not work, especially those that restrict your eating to particular food groups. And you are quite correct in that the best programs will result in one or two pounds per week of FAT loss, and while three pounds in 11 days might "sound good," it is unlikely that it is actual fat that you have lost.

      There are many good guidelines out there on general websites, such as WebMD, Yahoo Health, the NY Times and MSNbc. Basically, it comes down to sleeping well, exercising (which you say that you do) and eating nutritiously (fruits and veggies, whole grains and protein - and limiting sugar and sodium, especially the hidden kinds in many processed foods).

      Good luck to you and your wife - don't give up, look upon this as a learning experience!

  9. QUESTION:
    "Fat Loss For Idiots", Have you tried it? Does it Work?
    I have read an advert on the internet about this slimming diet where you eat more often, but follow different eating plans every day. The idea is that you confuse your metabolism so that it will burn up more fat and so reduce your body weight.
    Naturally, there is a charge for the information and I am not in a position to be able to waste money on a con.
    I am asking in the hope that you may have used this system and can offer me some advice on whether to buy it or not.
    I am diabetic and I wonder if it is suitable for people with diabetes.

    • ANSWER:
      i tried it and yes it works .here is the 11 day diet for fat burning..the rules are eat till you are NOT full, six glasses of water per day .four meals per day

      day 1..meal 1
      scrambled egg
      turkey slices
      fresh kiwi
      MEAL 2
      ham slices
      peanuts
      bowl of green veg
      MEAL 3
      hard boiled eggs
      cheese slices
      MEAL4
      chicken or tuna with salad no dressing
      low fat banana shake

      DAY 2
      sandwich with bread butter salad tomatoes and meat
      any fruit fresh only for the other three meals
      DAY 3
      grapes
      eggs
      bacon strips
      MEAL2
      porridge
      turkey slices
      apples

      basically its like this for eleven days..you feed in the foods you like from a list and the menu divides into eleven days

      i find when you have no bread , biscuits, etc, your body does not crave them after 2 days..it does work but it is all the same foods really, i had lots of energy on this one so i just introduced bread, chips potatoes once a week and the weight stayed off....hope this helps

  10. QUESTION:
    What is the best diet for me be based on my fitness profile?
    ok, i've been overweight all of my life, and have struggled to lose weight since i was in grade school... last year I lost 20 lbs using Crack the fat-loss code, it was a very good diet IMO but it was just too high maintenance for me.. I can handle pretty intense aerobic activity and having tried to lose weight all my life, I'm not really so clueless about nutrition.. so the the main point is, what fitness plan is best for someone like me, who is not super fat, and has been exercising (i'm not in a grossly unhealthy lifestyle I won't lose weight by making major changes) ? i've wanted to try the THE BEST LIFE bob greene but from reviews it seems that it's for those who need to make major changes.. i need a fitness plan because i can't to control my eating habits if i just try to eat less..
    i would also prefer if its a "holistic plan", meaning it deals with the emotional aspects of weight loss, since I that's also a big part of my struggle...

    btw, i'm 20, 5'2 140 lbs, wants to lose 35 lbs, i also don't eat meat (but i eat fish) so it has to be pretty flexible

    here are some of the diet plans i want to try which would be the best for me?

    bob harper's are you ready

    • ANSWER:
      it sucks. You are lacking in proteins and fats. you will lose muscle, not fat eating like this. So percentage-wise, you will end up fatter.

      at your weight of 160, you need 1600 calories to lose FAT effectively. 700 from protein/700 from fats/200 from carbs.

  12. QUESTION:
    PLEASE HELP ME! HAS ANYONE TRIED THIS?
    Has anyone tried the "Fat Loss 4 Idiots" Diet? I need to lose alot of weight quite fast. Can anyone tell me some websites that you DO NOT need to download or pay for the diet plan? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, that was the first diet I tried that worked for me. something you must realise though it is a short term. not a long term change.. If you want to lose weight and keep it off you have to change your lifestyle, permanently.
      I have seen sites offering it for free or for a few dollars. all they are offering you is a password and username for the site, and the accounts are shut down after too many people access it, so be careful. If you want to lose weight quickly by all means try fat loss for idiots, but for the longterm exercise,especialy cardio and eat healthy, permanently. good luck

  13. QUESTION:
    Ok This is Strange.?
    Yeh so I've been online tonight researching this diet plan called fat loss for idiots. But it seems to me that on every review I've read so far; (save for 1) people are saying that it does actually work. Even the reviews from different websites where it seems like you're going to get negative feedback, it actaully turns out to be positive. Except for this one review where this woman says it doesn't actually work then she sends you to one of her websites: www.betterofffat.com and the website is under reconstruction and doesn't even seem like it ever existed! So I guess my question is; does this diet actually work, or are ALL these different people from ALL these different website lying? I only want answers from persons who actually know because they themselves have actually tried it-not people's personal opinions! And I already know that a healthy diet and exercise works best, so I don't need any more recommendations about that either. Thanks. Please be honest.

    • ANSWER:

  14. QUESTION:
    Losing weight is stressing me out...bad?
    I've been attempting to diet now since November of last year. I've lost 20 lbs...in 6 months? This is ridiculous. I want some good, faster-than-this results. I need advice on how to do this, if you have a diet program you'd suggest or anything I'd be happy to check it out, as well as any tips. I'm just sick of doing these fad diets and not having them pay off! Please, no tea or acai berry spam. Please, I need help! I've tried weight watchers, fat loss for idiots, strip that fat, I just feel like I've been wasting so much time...I need a good diet. Please help! An eating plan that works, anything will help.

    • ANSWER:
      Weight watchers is not a fad diet. It is not even a diet. You can't lose weight fast and expect it to stay off. WW is the way to go. You just have to be honest with yourself about the points you ate, and follow the healthy guidelines. It is not about eating whatever you want and counting the points.

  15. QUESTION:
    Does calorie shifting work?
    Okay, I've heard a lotta good reviews on this thing. I came across that fat loss 4 idiots site and i think i believe it; but i dont wanna pay each month for the diet plan. I'm pretty sure I understand it... You zig-zag the amount of calories you intake each day. So, I really wanna lose weight by april or may! I wanna know if this really works. And how many lbs could i lose in 2 weeks?
    I want to hear from somebody who's tried this, and knows it works. :]
    And what would you need to eat during these times?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, You basically use their online menu generator, plugging in the foods you like and it will provide you with a menu to follow geared to the foods you like. Here's an example:

      Day 1:
      Meal 1: Banana Milk Shake
      Meal 2: Fruit Salad
      Meal 3: Scrambled Eggs with Vegetable Side
      Meal 4: Cottage Cheese

      Day 2:
      Meal 1: Chicken
      Meal 2: Tuna Salad
      Meal 3: Any Type of Sandwich
      Meal 4: Fish Fillet

      Day 3:
      Meal 1: Flavored Oatmeal
      Meal 2: Fruit Salad
      Meal 3: Scrambled Eggs
      Meal 4: Cottage Cheese

      Good Luck!!

  16. QUESTION:
    I need a diet and workout plan. Can you help?
    I currently weigh approx. 200 lbs (give or take for water weight, it does fluctuate every day), and I'm 5'5". My problem is I'm very impatient. If I don't start seeing results almost immediately, I'll lose focus. I've heard the bigger you are, the faster it'll come off. Is that true???

    I recently saw a specialist about this and they did a body mass test, and it said the bulk of my weight is in my torso. I need to know what's the best way to work off belly fat because if I can hit that I will eliminate a BIG portion of my problem. I'm unfortunately not a big gym-goer. I just don't enjoy working out. I have, however, started going to spin classes 2-3 times a week and I really enjoy them. But apart from that, I'm really clueless, I definitely need workout tips because I'm not sure what exercises I should be doing or how often.

    My eating habits need a major reality check as well. I'm weening myself off soda (this week especially-- I gave it up for Lent. Praying I can stick to it!) but apart from that I really have little knowledge as to what kinds of healthy food choices I should make. Please give me whatever tips you can! Idiot proof this for me because I have NO IDEA what I'm supposed to do! A sidenote to anyone who might answer in regards to food choices: I hate ALL seafood, which sucks because I know how healthy some of it can be, but I just really detest it. So please give me other options!

    I need to lose at least 50 lbs to be within a healthy BMI range. I'd love to lose more but, one step at a time. This is the first goal. And like I said, the faster I can get there, the better. I just know myself and unfortunately I will lose focus if I'm not seeing results. I know they say a healthy weight loss is 1-2 lbs a week, but again, because I'm bigger I feel the weight should come off faster. I'd love it if I could be halfway there in a couple months! Is that possible?

    Thanks everyone for ALL your input. Please be specific!!! Every little bit helps! I so appreciate it :)

    • ANSWER:
      You need to make a permamnet and committed life style change. "Diets" are temporary. Sorry but you'll have to "earn" the results and it's not going to happen over night. I bought a tread mill and started using it every other day (Nordictrac 2550). You need to be on it for at least 30 minutes. I start out with a fast walk (3.3 mph) for 10 minutes and then go to 4.4 mph jog for approx 6 minutes then to 4.6 mph for another 6-10 minutes then and then top out at 4.7 mph and finish with a 2 minute cool down of 3.3 mph. This takes 38 minutes and I do it every other day. I watch what I eat (NO SODA!!). I have lost 25lbs and now I sleep great and feel so much better. Yes you could lose 2 lbs /week. Eat more fruits and vegetables. I have added garlic (in salads), olive oil and ovacodos to my diet on a regular basis.
      basis. Work out a plan that fits you best.

  17. QUESTION:
    Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet Program: Any success?
    I've been looking for a healthy eating plan and I found out about this diet program today called Fat Loss 4 Idiots. Although the name is a little degrading, I was wondering if anyone's tried it and if it actually works. I know that it involves a personal diet plan, and even though it is personal, can someone give me a sample of what this diet told them to eat? I just want to get a feel for if this is worth forking out twenty dollars. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I bought the Fat Loss 4 Idiots program a few years ago (Actually, I think it was called "Weight Loss 4 Idiots" then). I was tempted by their claim that I could "lose 9 pounds in 11 days" by "eating foods that I choose". I was excited to fork over my money and begin my journey to weight loss success. I was losing only 7 pounds in first 14 days. But it's still a good result.

    • ANSWER:
      Fad diets never work. They result in a yo-yo pattern of weight loss and weight gain and you end up heavier and less healthy than when you start.

      If you are serious about weight loss, you should check out a book by Dr. Dean Ornish. He is a heart specialist who promotes a very healthy life style change. I follow a more extreme regime eliminating the following from my diet, and I've never felt better:

      Salt
      Sugar and sugar substitutes
      All sodas including diet
      Coffee including decaf coffee
      Refined carbohydrates including white bread and white rice
      Meat
      Fish
      All oils (including the good kind except for fish oil tablets)
      Dairy products
      Egg yokes (Egg whites are pure protein and very good)
      Alcohol (all)

      You must read labels carefully, because low fat foots often have sugar. Low sugar foods often add fats. Salt is pervasive in canned and frozen products. You are better off just avoiding restaurant foods and "corporate foods" that are preprocessed. Just eat vegitables, beans, brown rice, tofu, fruit, and other healthy foods. You will learn to love the taste of fresh foods without added salt and fat. The result is a life-long pattern of eating that prevents cancers, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. The pay off is that you feel better after just a week, although you may feel lousy the first couple days. Dean Ornish has a less severe dietary recommendation, however, I found going to the extreme to be easier to follow. This is a life-long change.

      In addition, after a week of a healthy diet, you will want to ease into an aerobic exercise program that will lead to one hour of aerobic exercise five days per week. Look up aerobic exercise for more information.

      Finally, it is extremely important that you get adequate sleep of 8-9 hours per day. If you are not sleeping deeply, you need to find out why, because lack of sleep can cause a ravenous apetite. (Research Sleep Apnea for details and check with your housemates to see if you are snoring. That's one symptom of sleep apnea, but you will never hear your own snores.)

  4. QUESTION:
    Is fat loss for idiots a scam?
    Is the website fat loss for idiots a scam? you pay a certain amount of money and get a ediet handbook and a diet generator.

    • ANSWER:
      No, it is a wonderful program and not a scam at all. I have been on the program for months. My goal was to lose 70 lbs and I have lost 50 so far just using fat loss for idiots.
      It sounds like a scam because you have to pay for it BUT it is actually a good program. You only pay for it once. So, you the or (I can't remember) and you can log on as many times as you want to change menu. So, if you want to do this a couple of times a year to lose some extra weight for a big event, the cost doesn't seem so bad. I think it really depends on how much weight you want to lose.
      I can't speak for anyone else, only my own experience with the program but I can't say enough good things about this.

Fad diets (low carb, low fat, low calorie, etc.) are the types of diets that are ineffective because they will slow down your metabolism.

When I first began this diet, I weighed over 300 pounds, I had an enormous belly, and a waistline big enough to fit a hoola hoop around it! Now, after using this diet for 8 weeks, I successfully lost over 50 pounds, flattened my stomach, and lost 4 inches off my waist!

The way this plan works is Fat Loss 4 Idiots will provide you with a fun and easy to use diet generator that will create a customized menu plan containing your FAVORITE FOODS broken down into 4 meals that you'll eat daily.

Are you wondering, "how much weight can you lose in a week"? Do you have a special event coming up that you want to lose weight for? If so, you may be wondering how you can lose a lot of weight real fast. 00004000 You can lose a little bit of weight in a week, but it is not safe to go to extremes. Starving yourself or following an unhealthly plan is never a good idea.

There are a few factors that will determine just how much weight you can lose in a week. If you are seriously overweight, or obese, you will lose more than someone who is thinner. Also, if you are very disciplined and take your diet and exercise program seriously, you will lose more than the person who is not as focused. Your body's own metabolism also will play a part in determining your speed of weight loss. You can, with the right program, increase the speed of your metabolism.

You will need to find a program that works for you and stick to it for the best results. With the right program, you should be able to see some results in a couple of weeks.

That said, you should be able to lose from 2-4 pounds in a week depending on the factors above. Those who lose weight in the area of 4 pounds are generally heavier to begin with and are extrememly dedicated to their weight loss program. When asking the question, "how much weight can you lose in a week", you will need to take a good hard look at yourself and what you are willing to do.

Fat Loss For Idiots Book

Written By: admin - Aug• 04•12

We are a country of overweight people and teenagers are no exception. Before we look at what a teenager can do to lose weight, let's look at the most common reasons for the excess weight.

- First of all is "puppy fat." This is a natural occurrence. Th 00004000 e growing body stores fat for future growth. A little puppy fat is harmless but in excess, it can be as bad as any other form of fat. Also, sometimes when the body stops growing, the body retains this fat and often increases it.
- Second is genetic predisposition. If being overweight runs in the family, the teen may also develop this problem.
- The third and most common cause is bad diet and a poor lifestyle.

The young teen body adapts easily to diet and lifestyle changes that can result in rapid weight loss, if done properly. The first thing to do is talk to your teen. Don't be patronizing or brusque. Belly fat, or fat anywhere on the body, is a problem that has to be fixed, just like the ones you do every day. Once you are on the same page, work out a program to lose weight you are both comfortable with. Remember teens always want things to happen fast, so you can use the idea of rapid at loss as a motivator for aspects of the plan your teen is not to eager to undertake. And keep in mind that you need to provide support and encouragement throughout the fat loss program.
Start off with the diet. A teenager's body is still developing so it needs adequate sustenance. If your teen wants to go on a starvation of fad diet like his or her friends, explain why this is not a good idea - thee is enough material available on the internet. Find a high carb low fat diet designed for the teen body. Plan it around 5 meals a day. Yes, 5 meals. 5 small meals will be easier to digest and provide regular energy inputs. When the body is hungry, the metabolism slows down and the amount of fat the body burns drops. The idea of eating more meals may sound counter productive to your teen, so explain that to lose weight what is eaten and in what quantities is important, not at what time of day the food is consumed.

The next thing is work out is the fat loss based exercise plan. Sports are a great way to do this, but overweight teens may be reluctant to expose themselves to locker room abuse from their more fit peers. Start with something that does not look like a fat loss exercise. The simplest is walking. Walking to and from school or, if that is not possible, a one hour walk either in the mornings before school or in the evenings is fine. If this is "boring", remind him or her about the iPod and also say that now he / she is an adult, taking time to think and plan is important and a walking is a good way to do this. Let the focus be less on the need to lose weight and more on something else. The results will be the same.

In most cases a proper diet plan and exercise routine will show up in rapid weight loss - teen bodies adapt and respond quickly. Once your teen's weight is down to a level where the confidence in his or her appearance has increased, playing a game can be considered. Of course, many teens are not interested in sports. A gym membership is a good alternative.

Teens often do not like to talk about their personal issues. The belly fat on your child may be troubling him or her more than you realize. The way to help your teen lose weight is to approach the topic of fat loss gently and make losing weight a team effort.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Fat Loss For Idiots book?
    Is Fat Loss For Idiots a good program?
    And how much does it cost?

    • ANSWER:
      it costs 39.99. The site is secure and they will never charge you again.

      With that they will give you a download on tips for eating healthy, working out, myths about certain foods, etc.

      The real diet is in the form of a website. I can give you the name of the website but you need to create a username and password to get in which they will give you with your purchase.

      Once you get in you choose 15-30 foods from a list they provide. The foods are mostly high in protein and low in carbs. Since you are picking foods you like the diet is very doable. You can use this site forever and re-create your diet as much as you like. I re-did mine 3 times because i didnt want to buy too many things that might go bad.
      Eggs, deli meat, nuts, and fish are some of the main ingredients i chose.
      It keeps the diet full of variety and you never get hungry because it instructs you to eat 4 times a day and just enough that you are satisfied but not full.
      That couples with exercise and lots of water will give you a 5-10lb loss every 11 days.
      After the 11 days you take a 3 day break and eat whatever you like. This tricks your body to think you eat foods like that all the time so it spikes your metabolism. But again its still eating 4 times a day just before your full.

      Good luck!

  2. QUESTION:
    where can i download the book "fat loss 4 idiots - idiot proof diet handbook" for free?

    • ANSWER:
      Try doing a web search. Type in fat loss 4 idiots - idiot proof diet handbook and see if that gets you any results.

      Good luck!

  3. QUESTION:
    Fat loss for idiots? Only if you've tried it!?
    I've been on diets my whole life. From the saltine crackers diet to starvations to fruits and veggies only, ect. And they all end up the same,
    i deprive myself of certain foods and crave them, then overload on them.
    I exercise everyday, or at least 5 days a week, either i go to the gym or i walk.
    I came across the fat loss for idiots book, and the calorie shifting idea seems like it would work, and you eat every type of food, which is good for me....im going to try it no matter what but i was wondering what was your experience with the diet?
    thanks. =]

    • ANSWER:
      Fat loss for idiots:
      Expend more calories than you are taking in.

      Fat loss for major idiots:
      Eat less, move more.

      That's all it comes down too. Diets like saltine crackers or starvation "diets" never work and always end up in disaster just like you stated.

      I've never heard of calorie shifting, but fat diet bells are going off like mad in my head. If it sounds similar to diets you have tried in the past, ignore it. If it sounds logical (ie eat less move more, not "the acai berry is a miracle food take it and you will lose 10lbs overnight") then go for it.

      To lose fat:
      1. DON’T BELIEVE THOSE FAD DIETS! DIET PILLS ARE GIMMICKS!
      2. DO NOT STARVE YOURSELF! Unless you are 4ft tall, a 1,200 calorie a day diet is DANGEROUS and won't work in the long run.
      3. Calculate your BMR. Do a google search. A good calculator would ask for your age, height, weight, and activity level.
      4. Eat healthy and eat about 500 calories a day less than your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Your BMR is how many calories you need per day to maintain your current weight.
      5. Eat 5-6 small meals a day. This keeps your metabolism up. Each meal should include fruits, veggies, water, and protein.
      5. Drink at least 64oz (8 8oz glasses) of water a day. No soda (that includes diet soda).
      6. Do light/moderate cardio 3 to 5 times a week for 30 to 45 minutes each time. Running, bicycling, and swimming are great for this.
      7. Do some strength training to make sure you lose fat and not muscle. Don't worry; you won't look like the hulk if you lift weights.
      8. You should lose about 1-2lbs (.45-.9kg) per week. If you lose more than that, chances are the rest is stool, water weight, or even muscle mass.
      9. Weigh yourself only once a week at the same time (ie every Friday morning). Your weight fluctuates a lot during any 24hour period because of water and food intake and also bowel movements.
      Be patient and be smart. If you follow this guideline you will be very happy with your results.

  4. QUESTION:
    what is fat loss 4 idiots?
    there is an e-book called fat loss for idiots. If anyone has it , how about sharing it with me. i have purchased e-books in the past and find they don't share much for the money. if you know the secrets or have the e-book to share please do.

    • ANSWER:
      If you need help to loose a few pounds, I recomend circut training and cardio exercises. This will help burn calories, the biggest issue peolpe have is to stay on a diet. Do not give in by any means and see results, myself coming back from a back injury, and a back surgey I went to eating things with out sugar, quit eating mayononise and Iwas some one that could't eat any type of sandwich with out mayonise. This is the best real advice I can say, it takes detication and with the first two or three weeks you should start seeing a difference provided both a good balanced diet. A good diet should consist of fresh fruit with every meal, banana's with dinner to help recover your body. Breakfast is where you can eat as much carbs and fruit as you want. make sure not to eat carbs after Breakfast. make sure to snack on nuts or celery or something small through out the day with some nutrional value, no a snickers won't work. Lunch should be some proteins, dairy if low in fat or no fat. Try to stay away from fats other then nuts, the reason is the fat in nuts is the type of fat that your body needs. Not all those fats you can't pronounce. Again something small like carrots as an afternoon snack. Dinner try not to eat later then 4 ours before you go to bed. As this time frame your body is most likely to just store and not burn what you ate. I recomend eating a salad with light dressing or try fruit to sweeten the salad, try not to use dressing if possible as this is where bad fat comes in. Nutrition is easily the biggest mistake people make. They don't like to eat right. The reson you want to eat through out the day is to speed up that motablism and you will see results quicker. Hope this helps, have fun, eat right and be happy.

  5. QUESTION:
    what's the Fat loss 4 idiots plan?
    I really want to try the diet but I can't buy the book or pay to download it.

Fat Loss For Idiots Diet

Written By: admin - Aug• 04•12

By: FitNRG.net

The Sensa diet aid is the latest popular and over-hyped diet product that claims to help you lose weight, while allowing you to eat whatever you want. Dr. Alan Hirsch is a medical practitioner who has spent many years researching the senses of smell and taste. The Sensa weight loss system also claims to 00004000 be a clinically proven product that has helped its users lose unwanted body weight.

Sensa works by making you feel fuller faster, and claims that by using your senses of smell and taste, it triggers the stomach to brain connection that tells your brain that you are full. So while you can eat anything you like, with Sensa sprinkled on to your food, you will feel fuller faster; therefore eating smaller portions, and consuming less calories, which should lead to weight loss.

Sensa Reviews

Sensa claims that its science is based on over 25 years of research and testing. It also heavily promotes a clinical study demonstrating the weight loss effectiveness of Sensa. In this study, 1436 men and women participated over a 6 months period. The results of this study found that the group which used Sensa lost on average 30.5 pounds compared to just 2 pounds for the control group over the same 6 months period.

Sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it?

Sensa even made claims that its diet product beat the weight loss results of other popular diet programs such as weight watchers, Atkin’s, and the Zone diet. It claimed that Sensa users lost more weight in less time compared to these other popular diets.

Sensa Ingredients

There are 4 main ingredients in Sensa, and they are:

Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide (carbohydrate) produced from corn starch. It is considered to have less calories than other sugars, and is easily digested.

Tricalcium phosphate is often used as an anti-caking agent.

Silica is also often used as a food additive that's primarily used in powdered foods to absorb water.

Carmine is a red color pigment that's used as a food dye.

Sensa is considered a food product, and there does not require FDA approval. As mentioned on the Sense website, all the ingredients in Sensa are on the food list that is Generally Regarded As Safe by the FDA (GRAS).

Despite their claims of weight loss success through their own clinical trials, Sensa is still a relatively unproven diet product, and it is certainly not cheap. A one month supply will cost $59.00 USD. If you were planning on spending that much money on Sensa, I would recommend reconsidering, and instead, spend less than that amount on a proven weight loss program such as the Fat Loss for Idiots diet plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    On Fat loss 4 idiots diet - How often do you eat on cheat days?
    For anyone on the Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet - how often & how much should I eat during those 3 cheat days?

    Do you still eat 4 times a day in small portions like usual?
    I guess I'm not being really clear. My question was, do I still need to eat 4 times a day, or can I go back to my usual pattern of eating 2-3 times a day?

    • ANSWER:
      try to cut down the junk food to a minimum on cheat days

  2. QUESTION:
    My wife wants to try fat loss 4 idiots, Idiot proof diet. Anyone have any success with this diet program?
    My wife needs to lose about 30 pounds and actually I could lose a few pounds myself. I think she looks find the way she is, but she is determined to lose those extra pounds. She heard about a diet called fat loss for idiots on a diet review blog. http://www.squidoo.com/lose-pounds-fast/ The blog writer claims to have lost 60 pounds on the diet. The reviews on this site are kind of one-sided, so we would like to know.....

    If anyone has had good results following fat loss 4 idiots diet.?
    Is this diet really easy to follow and stick to it?
    Did you gain the weight back fast, after you stopped using the diet?

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm actually currently on this diet and have to say that I've never had success anywhere else. I've lost 7lb in the last 11 days and to be fair, I feel so much better.

      Even though the website might make it feel that it's just another diet that won't work, I do suggest you give it a try. Even though, I did buy the diet generator and handbook when it was a lot cheaper, it's worth the investment.

      Plus, the food you eat isn't exactly terrible, you get to eat the foods YOU like. Which is fantastic and exercise is pretty much optional. The main thing is that you eat 4 meals a day, and that's not too hard. After that, you get 3 days of eating whatever you want... which is bliss. So, I'm going to keep on with this diet regime.

      Anyway, it's really up to you, I found with the large amount I have to lose that the diet is doing wonders:)

  4. QUESTION:
    where can I get a free copy of the fat loss for idiots diet?
    Can anyone give me a complete copy of the first 11 days of the diet?
    Its an e-book. Can anyone give me a complete copy of the first 11 days of the diet?

    • ANSWER:
      hi :) am not sure whats available in the markets...but, this is what i did to lose weight... PLEASE DONT TAKE PILLS... pills are nothing but anorectic agents... they make you feel less hungry... there is no way to loose weight fast... though , sauna , steam and massages help slightly... it has to be combined with diet and excercise... pills are very bad in the long run... can lead to impotency and infertility...

      i lost 10 kgs in about 5 months time... i am getting married in august and i desperately needed to loose weight... i was 65 kilos when i started... according to my BMI , i was 10kgs + overweight... i stand 5'2.odd and 65 kilos is grossly overweight...

      just dieting wont help like i found out in my case... diet + exercise will do the trick...

      i'll tell you what i did... it worked for me... hope it works for you too :)

      the trick is not to starve but to eat smart :) and stay healthy :)

      what you should cut down :
      oil , butter , cheese , margarine , mayonisse , sauces (depends , will get back to that a bit later), chips , crisps, nuts , chocolates , sugar , cola, fizz , areated drinks ,ice creams , chocolate , alcohol , cakes and everything else thats hi - cal... you'll need to avoid everything thats sweet , oily and sticky... if you are not sure about what foods to avoid... check the net...loads of info available...

      vegetables / meat to avoid :
      potatoes - very very important , beetroot (its a root and has concenterated sugar in it) , all kinds of roots basically except carrot... avoid lamb, mutton , pork , beef, and prawns... all these put on weight... eat only lean meats... thats fish and chicken.. avoid eating egg yolk... eat just the egg white...

      fruits to avoid :
      mangoes , bananas , jackfruit

      now that we had a look at what foodstuff is to be avoided...you might be wondering if there is anythig at all that you can eat... thats how i felt... there is loads of stuff you can eat actually :)

      here they come :)

      fast foods are a big no no... you can order salads and special lo cal foods that are avaailable in most outlets...

      its best to eat at home for the period you are dieting and trying to lose weight...after those few months... once you've shed your load...you can get back to your usual lifestyle... of course with some caution...

      my diet...
      breakfast:

      skimmed milk (use skimmmed milk , is low in fat , other typer of milk are higher in fat content) , fruit... i am from India... am not sure where you are from and hence you might not understand certain food types we consume here... but let me tell you something... Indian food is very very oily and very difficult to diet...

      and try cereal in the mornings... oats, weetabix... etc... have a good breakfast...alwaays use brown bread... whole wheat brown bread is very good for weight reduction...

      for lunch , we are staple rice eaters... rice is bad for fat reduction... but i still took rice because its a habit tht cant be changed... everyone takes rice here... so... rice - one cup - 100gms and lots of veggies cooked in less oil.. and absolutely no coconut and curry with less oil... all in all keep your oil intake to 2 tea spoons everyday... that would be just for seasoning... also using olive oil helps a lot...

      then for dinner... compulsarily have wheat... pasta is a good option...but make sure you buy wheat pasta... check before buying... and of course in pasta absolutely no sauces... some varities of sauces are acceptable... as far as they dont have cheese , butter , oil ,mayonisse and fattening substances in general... you can use tomato spicy sauces etc... make sure your sugar intake doesnt cross 2 - 3 spoons per day... (not tablespoons) and no butter and ghee of course... eat a lot of fruits and vegetables... and all kinds of cereal... if you are hungry... eat a fruit... or you can eat stuff like puffed wheat and puffed rice... but no puffed corn... corn products again put on weight...

      eat sandwiches as much as possible... i dont know which part of the world you are from and hence cant suggest much for you in terms of recepies...

      and combined with dieting... you need to excercise for atleast an hour everyday... you'll see the difference...defenitely... if you think gym is boring... take up dance classes... or run along the beach... if you have one... or skate... or just about any physical activity... brisk walking will also help...
      the key is to stay healthy while you diet and lose weight...

      drink loads of water...atleast 6 glasses per day... and do a lot of physical activity.... take the stairwy instead of the lift.... and small things like that...
      if you have any more queries...mail me... cheers :) and good luck :) its not difficult...you'll get used to it in a few days... and of course the results are fab:) who doesnt want a great looking body...

      you can get back to your normal lifestyle once you slim down... after that... its just eating what you like and burning it out the next day with just a little bit of excercise :) also check your weight everyday... its a great way to motivate and monitor your progres :)

      personal exp :)

    I had a baby a year ago and I can't seem to lose the weight. I've tried the South Beach Diet but it didn't really work for me. I heard about this one and was wondering if anyone tried it and what the results were. I'd love to hear from people who actually tried it, negative and positive feedback, so if you're just going to say "exercise and eat healthy" without having tried it, don't post.
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      PLEASE do not buy it, my friend tried it, and it is a SCAM. It is just like a cabbage soup diet.

      Okay, I'll try,

      First of all, no starving yourself. Or using laxatives or making yourself throw up.

      Drink at least 8 cups (64 oz) of water a day. That's 4 water bottles full.

      Eat 3 square meals a day, and have 2 small snacks. One between breakfast and lunch and the other between lunch and dinner. That way you won't be super hungry at meal time and pig out.

      Don't drink anything other than water and milk (preferably skim)... juice has a TON of added and natural sugars. Especially not soda/soft drinks/pop or whatever you call it.

      No junk food... (this means candy, chips, fried foods, popcorn, etc...)

      Give up sugary foods. Desserts, pretty much. And sweet cereals and things like that.

      And, of course, exercising is good too. Don't overdo it at first. If you're not active, start with about 30 minutes of aerobic cardio exercise.

      Some good ways to exercise are:

      Raquetball. Since you're running after a little ball, you don't really have to think about the fact that you're running, which can be really tiring. You just want to get to the ball. It's GREAT exercise. Plus, it's fun, even if you absolutely SUCK, like me.

      Running/ Jogging. Well, duh. great if you want to get rid of a stomach, and flabby legs.

      Swimming. Pretty much good all around. Plus, it doesn't tear at your muscles like running, so you probably won't be as sore the next day.

      Buy work-out videos. Yeah, okay. I know it sounds lame. But seriously, they work. And if you don't feel like making a total fool of yourself in front of a class, but still need ideas of what to do, they're great.

      Crunches. I'm not going to explain them. Hopefully you already know what they are.

      Pushups. Yes, I know most people think they're just for arm muscles, but they really aren't. If you do them, you'll notice your abs getting really tight. If they're too hard, try alternating, do one real pushup then one with your knees on the floor.

      Leg lifts- Pretty much what it sounds like. Lie flat on your back, then lift your legs back toward your stomach.

      Plies- Mostly work the leg muscles. Stand with your feet directly beneath your elbows and pretend to sit down. My old dance teacher made us do those until every single one of us was groaning. We all wanted to kill her, but, as a result, we had killer legs. Cheesy, right? I know. Forgive me. Bad habits are hard to kill.

      Levitation- Okay, not really. You sit upright, with your legs in front of you, then lean back like you're going to lie down, but never let your back actually touch the ground. Then sit upright again. Remember to breathe.

      Pull ups- Again, pretty much what it sounds like. Stand upright, (don't bend your back!) and pull your knee up as close to your stomach as you can. Pull your arms down as you lift your leg. Then alternate legs.

      Suicides- Pretty sure you already know what those are. Run from one spot to another, touch the ground and run back.

      Pretty much all I can think of at the moment. Hope I helped. Best of luck. : )

  9. QUESTION:
    can someone share the fat loss for idiots diet?
    i am only 15 and cant really buy anything off the inernet.

    but i watched the video about it and i was wandering how it works?

    i mean the part that you dont hear unless you buy it.

    like..what do you do? eat? and stuff.

    • ANSWER:

  10. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet and had success? I'd be grateful for any info.?
    I've heard a bit about this diet but I'm not sure what to believe. Any advice would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      One of the nicer aspects of the Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet plan is the online menu generator. You plug in several of your favorite food choices and the menu generator gives you an 11 day meal plan with 4 meals a day.

      In addition, unlike many other popular diet programs, Fat Loss 4 Idiots does not require you to buy any special foods or the expensive pre-packaged foods. You are able to simply continue buying fresh foods at your grocery store as you normally do.

      So, what kind of meals will you be eating with the Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet Plan?

      Although everyone is different, here is just a quick sample of a few choices you'll have for a typical day.

      Meal 1: Banana milk shake or Oatmeal

      Meal 2: Tuna salad or fruit salad

      Meal 3: Fish Filet or a sandwich of your choice

      Meal 4: Cottage cheese or scrambled eggs meal

      At first glance this may not seem like a lot of food, but keep in mind that with Fat Loss 4 Idiots, you are not limited to portion sizes. Also, you are eating 4 meals per day and not the more typical 3 meals a day we are so accustomed to.

      One of the goals of this diet plans to become filled up when eating, but not being overly filled. Add in plenty of water and you will be surprised at how easy it is to get through the day. I think we all know what it's like to be on diet programs where you feel starved and struggle to just get through the day.

      Of course, most everyone can only take a few days or weeks of it and they quit. This is just one of the reasons Fat Loss 4 Idiots is different. You get to eat foods you enjoy and you get to eat enough that you're not walking away hungry.

      **Does Fat Loss 4 Idiots Work?**

      I can say that the people I've spoken too have mostly been very pleased with it. I've spoken to people who have lost 30 pounds and more on this diet in a relatively short time and were absolutely in love with it.

      It doesn't work for everyone (nothing does) but it works for most of the people I've spoken to and I believe that you should be no different.

      You can find out much more about this unique diet program here: http://www.fat-loss-4-morons.info

      Good luck!

  13. QUESTION:
    anyone on the fat loss for idiots diet?
    i was just wondering if this diet works and what are some kinds of foods you can eat on it.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi!

      Reading about the Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet makes you wonder if they might not be on to something. The way the diet works is different than other fad diets that involve cutting out certain types of food like low carbohydrates, low fat or low calorie. Instead it uses calorie shifting foods that you would normally eat, increases the number of times you eat, and changes when you eat certain things for fast fat loss.

      What is Calorie Shifting?

      The way calorie shifting works involves tricking the fat hormones that are sent out by the brain. Every time you eat something, your brain sends out fat storing and fat burning hormones, depending on what the item is.

      The idea is to send more fat burning than fat storing hormones, so that the body does not hold onto the fat for later use. If you keep confusing the metabolism, you will see fast fat loss, as much as 9 pounds in 11 days, that is the first weightloss principle of Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet.

      How Does The Metabolism Control Weightloss?

      This scientific weight control fact about the metabolism and how it works stems from our ancestry as cavemen, when there were famine periods between hunts. The body would store and hold onto fat for survival. The metabolism has not evolved from this self-defense tactic and doesn't realize we can just run to the grocery store and get whatever we want.

      On restrictive diets, weightloss can plateau when the metabolism thinks it is experiencing a famine period, and it will only burn what is taken in. Even on some of the popular low carbohydrate diets, it is advised to eat pizza for two days when your weight plateaus to get the metabolism going.

      Why Do Some Weightloss Diets Leave You With No Energy?

      The only problem with many of these restrictive weightloss diets is the metabolism goes back to only burning what you take in and many people complain about being tired and worn down, when it is mainly the metabolism storing up the energy for later.

      By eating healthy, nutritious foods that are fat burning, the metabolism burns as much energy as you need. Many people on restrictive weightloss diets will regain the weight when they go back to eating normal foods.

      What Is The Best Diet For Weightloss?

      The best weight control diet allows you to eat the foods that you would normally eat, have in your refrigerator and cabinets. By timing when you eat certain foods, how many times a day you eat them, and balancing the types of food, your metabolism will burn what you take in and then some, because it knows you will be feeding it again shortly, instead of starving.

      Prepackaged fat loss products and frozen dinners are not something you can live on the rest of your live. You need to understand the basics of natural weight control, and Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet uses the fundamental principles of controlling the metabolism with calorie shifting normal foods you eat every day.

  14. QUESTION:
    Does the Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet work?
    I have a goal to loose a certain amount of weight by the end of my junior year of high school and i keep hearing good things about the Fat Loss for Idiots diet. Can anyone tell me whether it really works? It looks promising and I really dont know anymore.

    • ANSWER:
      I would not do any diet that has the word idiot in it. Just eat healthy and exercise. You will see more improvements than any fad diet will give you.

  15. QUESTION:
    For people who have been on the fat loss for idiots diet only please!?
    I was just wondering how much weight you have lost and in about how much time did you do it.

    • ANSWER:
      Please do not try fad diets that rarely work in the long run and consider a healthy life style change.

      The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better:

      *1) Burn more calories then you're consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at http://www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/library/weight/calsburned.htm

      Get an online, desktop, or cell phone diet and fitness calculator. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities.

      Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight:
      Adults: http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.htm
      Teens/Children: http://www.kidshealth.org/kid/exercise/weight/bmi.html

      It is difficult and unhealthy to lose more than one or two pounds per week. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. If you eat 500 fewer calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. If you burn through exercise 500 more calories per day for a week you will lose one pound.

      Here are two articles on how to break through a weight loss plateau:
      http://www.webmd.com/content/article/86/99147.htm
      http://www.webmd.com/content/pages/18/102117.htm

      *2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement.

      Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water. Read this article for more information on high GL Carbs:

      *3) Perform cardiovascular, core, and/or strength training on most days. Read a book or find a certified trainer to make sure you're doing all exercises correctly.

      The following is a website and numerous articles on cardiovascular, core, and strength training:

      *4) Get plenty of sleep. Sleep experts say most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance, health, and safety.

      *5) Educate yourself continually on health issues and make a life long commitment to good health. A great free publication is “Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005”. A reputable test you can take to measure your biological age is at http://realage.com
      Look at all areas where you can enhance your health. For example, make improvements in the quality of the air you breathe. Review outdoor air quality forecasts where you live and get an indoor air purifier.

  19. QUESTION:
    Anyone out there on the Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet??
    Does it require you to keep a food journal. It says that people who kept one lost twice the weight.

    Also, how long does it last? Does it generate a menu for you EVERY 11 days, or do you have to purchase another one at the end of the 11 day period?

    http://www.badjocks.com/idiot-proof-diet/
    I just want info about THIS diet please. Thanks for the tips but I have already purchased this and I just need info on ..this..diet

    • ANSWER:
      Fad diets never work. They result in a yo-yo pattern of weight loss and weight gain and you end up heavier and less healthy than when you start.

      If you are serious about weight loss, you should check out a book by Dr. Dean Ornish. He is a heart specialist who promotes a very healthy life style change. I follow a more extreme regime eliminating the following from my diet, and I've never felt better:

      Salt
      Sugar and sugar substitutes
      All sodas including diet
      Coffee including decaf coffee
      Refined carbohydrates including white bread and white rice
      Meat
      Fish
      All oils (including the good kind except for fish oil tablets)
      Dairy products
      Egg yokes (Egg whites are pure protein and very good)
      Alcohol (all)

      You must read labels carefully, because low fat foots often have sugar. Low sugar foods often add fats. Salt is pervasive in canned and frozen products. You are better off just avoiding restaurant foods and "corporate foods" that are preprocessed. Just eat vegitables, beans, brown rice, tofu, fruit, and other healthy foods. You will learn to love the taste of fresh foods without added salt and fat. The result is a life-long pattern of eating that prevents cancers, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. The pay off is that you feel better after just a week, although you may feel lousy the first couple days. Dean Ornish has a less severe dietary recommendation, however, I found going to the extreme to be easier to follow. This is a life-long change.

      In addition, after a week of a healthy diet, you will want to ease into an aerobic exercise program that will lead to one hour of aerobic exercise five days per week. Look up aerobic exercise for more information.

      Finally, it is extremely important that you get adequate sleep of 8-9 hours per day. If you are not sleeping deeply, you need to find out why, because lack of sleep can cause a ravenous apetite. (Research Sleep Apnea for details and check with your housemates to see if you are snoring. That's one symptom of sleep apnea, but you will never hear your own snores.)

  20. QUESTION:
    How can I get a free copy of the Fat Loss For Idiots / Idiot Proof Diet ?
    Please help.

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to burn fat is to consume less food and move more, the problems surface when we actually aim to put that into practice! There are plenty of temptations out there aren't there?!

    garbanzo beans?was it straight out of a can or slow cooked plse reply

    • ANSWER:

  22. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know the Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet??
    I need someone to email the diet to me at corkyberry1000@yahoo.com. If you have any diets that will allow me to loose at least 6 1/2 lbs. a week and FREE!!! that is good too. Make sure its free because i'm tired of people sending me diets that cost money. If you have made your own diet and it is similar to what I'm looking for, i'll take that too. I don't care if its safe or not.

    • ANSWER:
      the fat loss for idiots diet is like , and you can only get it based on YOUR preferences and what YOU eat. nobody can send it to you because that whole diet doesn't tell you WHAT to eat, it tells you WHEN to eat each food. if you want to lose 6 and a half pounds a week, start exercising more and eat healthier. the FL4I diet starts to work in 11 or more days.
      there really are no FREE diets that work,so it's really not worth it anyway.

  23. QUESTION:
    could someone please share the "Fat Loss 4 Idiots" diet??
    please post what you have done/eaten for the past few days while on the "fat Loss 4 Idiots" diet!?
    thankyou!

    • ANSWER:
      can:
      1. Exercise in short, intense bursts (interval training) for effective fat burning after exercise.
      2. Increase the amount of resistance/strength/weight training you do, to build more lean muscle. Muscle is ‘metabolically active’ and burns more calories than other body tissue even when you’re not moving.
      And of course, for best results:
      3. Chill on the amount of food you are eating.

      Technically:
      1. Our bodies are built to survive, so when you exercise for long periods of time (often and consistently) your body thinks it needs to hold on to fat for energy. Doing short (12-15 minute), intense exercise sessions builds strength and burns calories, but not fat, so it “feels safe” using fat stores for energy after exercise.
      2. Resistance training (using extra weight) helps build lean muscle mass (and strong bones), and muscle burns more calories than fat.
      3. If you are obsessing over things like fat grams and not eating a nutritious diet, your body will reserve energy (store fat) to survive.

      Realistically:
      1. Varying your exercise is the most effective and efficient way to stay lean and healthy. You must do some longer exercise to build cardiovascular endurance, burn lots of calories, and yes, even burn fat during exercise - your body will not click in to “save” mode unless you exercise for long periods of time, regularly and often.
      2. You must do resistance training in order to build muscle and strong bones.
      3. Nobody wants to exercise more - and we don’t want to train our bodies to need more exercise to stay fit. So exercise efficiently – two short, very intense (relative to your level of fitness) training sessions weekly, like a 15-minute fast run/walk or fast cycling sprint intervals, and two moderately long, moderately intense sessions (30-45 minutes) of strong walking, cycling, or yoga, with one long day (60-90 minutes) of a moderately paced walk/hike. That’s a great five-day/week training schedule.
      4. Instead of adding more days to your workout schedule, add a weighted vest to your training. I have said this before, but this is the most efficient way that I know of to build muscle while burning calories. For more information, go to http://www.walkvest.com/.
      5. Eat moderately - stop counting fat grams and calories and look at how much food is on your plate! And eat more nutritiously by eating foods that are natural and unprocessed.

    • ANSWER:
      Depends on your genetics

  29. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the fat loss 4 idiots diet and what are your thoughts/results?
    I am a woman 51 yrs old. I have gained 20 lbs in a year. I lost 50lbs about 8 years ago. I have changed jobs and am sitting more than usual. My hormone levels are within normal range. Nothing I did before seems to help me now to lose weight. I had started my journey about 8 years ago at 182.5 lbs. I had hit 135-140lbs and then leveled off at 146lbs. And have been that way for several years. Now I am at 167lbs.
    I was wondering if anyone tried this diet and what do you think. I seem to find a lot of good reviews.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    I failed to say, I excersize 3-4 days a week, sometimes more. I eat healthy and most people tell me I should be losing weight just by the way I eat. If I ate junk food and didn't excersize I could see the problem. Right now I'm just not seeing it!

    • ANSWER:
      Well without reading the actual plan the sales pitch looks ok. Im going to give you a link to a free version of cheat your way thin. Once you get through the initial 2 week low carb phase its effective and pretty easy to stay with. I would highly suggest you exercise along with any good mealplan you try. I lost 15 lbs in 8 weeks on cheat your way thin. 2 lbs a week isnt too bad.

      The nice thing about this mealplan is you can contiue it as long as you want to maintain your weight once you get where you want to be

      Could be you arent eating enough. If you eat to little you will store fat, if you eat too much no matter how healthy it is you will store fat. Might be you arent exercising intensly enough either. If you ahve all that covered then you may have just plateaued and need to shake things up. Like I said, reading the sales pitch on the diet you referenced it looked ok. The link I gave you might save you some cash though. I know it works.

  34. QUESTION:
    I'm going to start the Fat Loss For Idiots Diet next week, am I nuts?
    I'm just doing it to get a kick start I will probably revert to the Weight Watchers eating programme once I get the kick start I'm looking for as it is quite restrictive & i'd get bored. I also think there are a lot of salted fods allowed on the 11 day programme. Has anyone here done it? A girl I work with did it and got great results but as I trawl the website I see there could be some difficulties & I have'nt been able to talk to my colleague in great detail about the pros & cons so any experienced users out there willing to share their experiences?
    Ha ha I cant believe some of the responses! Might I ad that this is NOT a weight reducing product, it is just a list of food combinations! You dont use pills or anything you eat regular food just in a food combining fashion.

    • ANSWER:
      Just eat more veggies, control your portions, drinks lots of water and exercise 30 minutes a day!

      That you're thinking about your weight is the first step, and for that you should be commended.

      Weight loss is simple - burn more calories than you ingest!

      Good luck

  36. QUESTION:
    fat loss 4 idiots: Looking for fat loss 4 idiots product review and honest opinion on fat loss 4 idiots method?
    fat loss 4 idiots product has been around quite sometime and I really wonder if you have put this fat loss 4 idiots diet into practice and see the result yourself?

    Kindly answer my concern regarding fat loss 4 idiots diet if you have really follow the method.

    Genuinely looking forward your answer on fat loss 4 idiots

    • ANSWER:
      fat loss 4 idiots is based on the main core of the problem: you are overweight not just because you eat a lot; but you need to eat the right kind of food, more than anything else. That is what the fat loss 4 idiots promises, you need to change your diet and eat the right foods at the right time.

      fat loss 4 idiots is actually a ten step program. First of all it suggests that the food should belong to one of the three main categories: Proteins, Carbs and Fat.

      The main goal is to manipulate the amount of calories you intake in every meal, as this is more important than the overall daily sum of calories.

      According to fat loss 4 idiots the right combinations of foods belonging to these three categories are the key to the success, which is actually a very healthy and realistic approach to the losing weight issue.

      Lean proteins, veggies and fruit, as well as whole foods such as eggs or cottage cheese – which are ideal suppliers of well sensed and necessary fat – are the ones that compound the Fat loss 4 idiots program.

      Every day you are supposed to eat 4 meals with 2,5 hours between them approximately. You are not supposed to measure and eat particular quantity, but the suggestion and secret is to eat as much as you want, short of feeling full.

      A good advice is to drink lots of water every day, but not more than 2 glasses per time. What is absolutely great is that after the 11 days of the program you get 3 free days, which means that you can eat normally without following the diet plan, but then you go back to your 11 days.

      You can read more on the advantage and disadvantage about fat loss 4 idiots in this blog, there are quite a few -ve and -ve comments in this fat loss 4 idiots product review.

    • ANSWER:

  38. QUESTION:
    FAT LOSS FOR IDIOTS - is this a good diet?
    I desperately want to lose weight - I've come across this diet and would like to know it's success rate.
    Have you tried it? - Did you lose weight?

    Only reply if you've actually been on the diet - please.

    I know exercise is what I need, and to eat healthily etc - but I want to know about this diet!!!!!

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      They have now found that calorie intake and amount of food you eat is a bigger culprit for obesity today and exercise is not going to help you lose weight. We need to exercise our bodies to burn fat, and calories and keep muscle but if you gorge yourself for dinner every night, exercise will not help you shed the pounds as much.

      I have never heard of this diet but it doesn't mean it can't work. The only problem with a diet is that you have to want to do it and you have to make it a lifestyle to continue it. Going on diets to lose a few pounds is ok but when you stop the diet are you gaining weight in between?

      Good luck with it if this is the one you choose.

  43. QUESTION:
    Does anybody have feedback on the diet plan called Fat Loss for Idiots??
    This is not a "diet". It's an education uncovering myths and eating in cycles....curious if anybody has any feedback from their own personal use.

    • ANSWER:
      It sucks. I am sure if you could actually finish it you would lose weight but it is quite ridiculous and very hard to stick through. I think I made it 3 or possibly 4 out of 11 days! It is very repetittive! I would rather just eat healthy and excercise!

  44. QUESTION:
    Hi can anybody tell me if there is a good diet out there.Is the web site fat loss for idiots a scam?

    • ANSWER:
      I can't tell you if that particular web site is a scam- I can't locate it. I can tell you most of the lose weight quick places and plans are. Unfortunately, there are just no simple quick and painless ways to remove weight. It's not a matter of a magic food, a magic combo of foods, or even eliminating classes of foods. The fact is, you have to reduce calorie intake to lose weight, and you will increase the demand for calories if you exercise as well. There are no forbidden foods, there are only foods you should not eat as much of, as often, as others. Any diet that restricts or eliminates popular foods from the diet will only set you up to fail, because you will not likely stick to it for long before you give in to a craving and overdo it. Then you will feel rotten and give up completely. When your body is having to come up with calories to make up for what you aren't eating, it naturally burns fat from the reserves. You don't need a pill for that, and in fact- the pills and potions, diets and promises that claim to do that just don't work. All they do is transfer your hard earned money to somebody else's bank account. If you need help getting started, see if you can see a registered dietician who can teach you the ins and outs of calorie reduction, and tailor a diet that will work for you. If you want to join a program that has proven sucess, stick with Weight Watchers. They aren't fadish, and there are no mandatory food packets or pills. Although they do have a line of meals you can buy in the shops, you don't have to. In fact, they make it a point to teach you how to use real food and cook real world meals. That way, the weight you do lose you can keep off. It's sensible, it's slow- but it works.

  45. QUESTION:
    Does that Weight Loss for Idiots (Calorie shifting diet) really work?
    I was researching something online and stumbled onto it. One user site had tons of people who had success stories, but I wanted to ask here, where i know REAL un-paid by those companies people are. So any thoughts, comments? Does it work, does it not?

    I think they changed the name to Fat Loss for Idiots, so either name you know it by.....

    • ANSWER:
      I personally know some people who have lost weight on this diet. It really does work! I don't know what site you went to, but there is a forum called caloriesperhour.com that has a lot of active Fat Loss 4 Idiots users on it. A forum is a good place to do research, because there are people on there just like you and me.

      Go to that website and then go the forum page, and then scroll down and find the Fat Loss 4 Idiots section. Inside that board, one of the first threads is a very long thread that a lot of people visit every day. I would just go to the last page first, because the 1st page is like from 2005. So, start at the last page and go backwards, that way you are reading about the most recent discussions. There are also many other threads that people have started about the diet, but that long one is the most active.

  46. QUESTION:
    Fat Loss 4 Idiots Questions?
    I have just started the FatLoss4Idiots Weight loss Diet, and was wondering if anyone could tell me how there experience was with the program? Did it work for you, or did it not? Thanks!

  47. QUESTION:
    Fat Loss 4 idiots? DON'T DO IT!! I've been on it for 11 days, and have only lost 3 lbs!!!?
    My wife and I thought we'd start a diet plan to loose some belly fat, etc. I'm 35 years old, and lead an active lifestyle. The diet plan of choice, "Fat Loss 4 Idiots". Well, I believe that you have to be an idiot to buy into this "diet plan". This was an actual day's meal plan: Peanuts and walnuts for a meal?? Really?? Turkey slices and Orange Roughy for another meal?? Third meal: a bowl of pinto beans?? Finally, shrimp and boiled eggs for your final meal?? Ewe!

    GROSS!!! Basically, never eat until you're full. That's the over all plan. DUH! Ask yourself, "Is giving someone online a good diet plan?? I might lose a pound or two because I'm just sick that SOMEONE out there has my and all I have is a meager 3 lb. loss, probably all water weight, and an uneasy feeling in my belly from eating all these crazy food combinations. GASTRO-INTESTINAL NIGHTMARE!!!

    I feel like such an idiot!! (no pun intended) Anyone out there know how to get your money back

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sorry for your experience, but your post is a classic example of why it's important to research, research, research weight-loss programs before trying them, and especially before forking over your hard-earned money.

      Research has shown over and over that short-term diets do not work, especially those that restrict your eating to particular food groups. And you are quite correct in that the best programs will result in one or two pounds per week of FAT loss, and while three pounds in 11 days might "sound good," it is unlikely that it is actual fat that you have lost.

      There are many good guidelines out there on general websites, such as WebMD, Yahoo Health, the NY Times and MSNbc. Basically, it comes down to sleeping well, exercising (which you say that you do) and eating nutritiously (fruits and veggies, whole grains and protein - and limiting sugar and sodium, especially the hidden kinds in many processed foods).

      Good luck to you and your wife - don't give up, look upon this as a learning experience!

  48. QUESTION:
    fat loss for idiots review anyone?
    has anybody tried the diet that they sell called fat loss for idiots? I see good things said about it but im not sure if its just people trying to sell it more. thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Like you, I had trouble finding any honest reviews on this diet. Here's my honest evaluation: I am on day 11 of this diet. I have lost 8 lbs - from 145 - 137. I haven't done the whole "3 day off" part yet, but I expect that I'll gain some weight back after that. This diet supposedly works by "shifting calories" which means that you rotate the kinds of food you eat daily so your body's metabolism doesn't have time to adjust (on this diet it's either a protein day or a carb day - but not the kind of carbs you're probably used to). This is supposed to maximize your fat loss potential. What I've found: This is basically a whole food, low carb diet. The carbs that you can consume are simple carbs, like fruit and vegetables, but you do get the occasional oatmeal or bran. You will not eat bread, pasta, rice, processed food of any kind. A typical "meal" on this diet is something like "walnuts and sausage." Portion size is up to you, the only rule being, "you must eat until you're no longer hungry, but stop before you're full." This means that you will be eating more protein, fewer carbs and most likely smaller portions - because the meals are not very interesting or appetizing. If you can get past that though, it's really not so bad. The good things about this diet? Well, it's gotten me to be more aware of my carb intake...I have a history of type 2 diabetes in my family and an incredible sweet tooth. I didn't think I could live without candy, ice cream, pasta, beer, etc. Surprisingly, after a couple days on this diet, I found I didn't have those cravings. Now I crave fruit and nuts. Go figure. I did get some nasty headaches though. I think that this diet works on the same principle of the induction phase of the Atkins diet. You are denying your body its primary fuel (carbs) so your body relies on stored glycogen (which is stored with water, so you will pee a lot, and need to drink even more water to remain hydrated) and then fat cells for energy. Since your brain needs glucose and your muscles use glycogen, it's not a good idea to refrain from eating carbs completely. On this diet, you do get to consume carbs in moderate quantities, but not every day. Some days you may have mostly carbs, on others, hardly any. The bad news? You get to eat 4 "meals" a day! Sounds good right? Not to someone who eats 3 meals and 2-3 snacks per day. Plus the fact that you are never actually "full" and the restriction on carbs and processed foods means that you are going to consume far fewer calories than you're used to. For example, there was one day where you could only eat vegetables. Try eating anywhere near 1500 calories of vegetables. I dare you. Overall, this diet works, but probably only because of the calorie and carb restrictions, not "calorie shifting" like they claim. I will not do another "11 day cycle" on this diet. Instead, I will continue to be aware of my carb intake, and reduce my dependence on processed food. Hope this helps. Good luck!

  49. QUESTION:
    Is fat loss for idiots a scam?
    Is the website fat loss for idiots a scam? you pay a certain amount of money and get a ediet handbook and a diet generator.

    • ANSWER:
      No, it is a wonderful program and not a scam at all. I have been on the program for months. My goal was to lose 70 lbs and I have lost 50 so far just using fat loss for idiots.
      It sounds like a scam because you have to pay for it BUT it is actually a good program. You only pay for it once. So, you the or (I can't remember) and you can log on as many times as you want to change menu. So, if you want to do this a couple of times a year to lose some extra weight for a big event, the cost doesn't seem so bad. I think it really depends on how much weight you want to lose.
      I can't speak for anyone else, only my own experience with the program but I can't say enough good things about this.

Fat Loss Exercises For Women

Written By: admin - Aug• 03•12

People commonly ask when it's best to do their cardio workouts in order to maximize fat loss. While it's true that cardio at any time will burn calories, some research suggests that cardio at certain times will burn a higher proportion of fat. Many studies demonstrate that cardio workouts in the morning burn more fat. Some evidence also suggests that fat loss may be increased after weight training. Women may be more prone to burning fat during exercise than men.

The Body's Energy Use

It's important to understand how the body uses energy. There are two main sources of energy the body turns to for fuel: glucose and fat. Glucose is a carbohydrate stored in the liver and muscles as glycogen; this is the body's preferred form of energy because it's easily-accessible. The other form of fuel, fat, is less easily-accessible. It's the body's reserve storage system. The body always burns a mixture of glycogen and fat, but its primary fuel is glycogen.

Morning Cardio

The word "breakfast" literally means to break a fast. Generally, sleep is the longest period during which people go without food. Since bodily functions must be continuously fueled, glycogen stores slowly deplete during sleep. Upon waking, blood glucose and insulin are at their lowest levels. A pre-breakfast cardio workout causes the body to turn to its fat stores as a source of energy; basically, without food in the system and with lower levels of stored carbohydrates, the body burns fat to fuel itself.

Cardio also elevates the body's metabolic rate, even after the workout is done. This provides a longer-lasting energy boost. So cardio in the morning not only burns a higher proportion of fat, but it also increases energy levels for the rest of the day. Still, people should take care not to do more than 40 minutes of cardio on an empty stomach, just to ensure they don't lose muscle.
Research Supporting Morning Cardio

A study from the journal, Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, found that after a 12-hour fast, the amount of fat burned from aerobic exercise was 17% higher than when the same exercise was done after eating or later in the day. Another study from The Journal of Applied Physiology concluded, "Our results support the hypothesis that endurance training enhances lipid oxidation in men after a 12-h overnight fast at low relative exercise intensities". Another study that looked specifically at maximizing fat loss concluded, "The ability of exercise to selectively promote fat oxidation should be optimized if exercise is done post-absorptively (preferably during morning fasting metabolism)".

Dissenting Opinion

Despite these studies, many scientists and health experts maintain that morning cardio isn't any more effective than at other times. The disconnect stems primarily from the energy balance hypothesis. According to this theory, exercising at a certain time doesn't make a difference, so long as the person burns more calories than he or she consumes in the course of the day. Proponents don't dispute the aforementioned research, but instead note that it merely shows a higher proportion of fat-burning in the morning. They believe that the body compensates, burning a higher proportion of glycogen later in the day, so that the end result is the same.

Critics of these critics note that simply considering total calories consumed and burned is overly simplistic. Meal frequency and the ratio of proteins to carbs to fats have an effect on fat loss and muscle gain. Not all calories are created equal.

Post-Lifting Cardio

While it's less conclusive, some research suggests that cardio workouts after weight training may also burn a higher proportion of fat than at other times. The issue again is glycogen. Weight training is anaerobic, so the body primarily uses glycogen as its fuel. After weight training, glycogen levels are lowered and the body turns to fat to fuel a cardio workout. The science here is far from settled and there is also variation among individuals, so people should always consider what works best for them. Regardless, they should continue lifting heavy weights, no matter when they do cardio for fat loss. Lean muscle mass burns calories all the time.

Gender Differences

Some studies indicate that there are slight gender-based differences in what fuel the body uses during exercise. Women get more of their energy from fat than do men. Men exhibit higher rates of carbohydrate and leucine oxidation and lower rates of fat oxidation than women. There are indications that estrogen affects the body's fuel source selection, but the cause of this gender difference remains largely unknown.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are the best What are the best toning fat loss exercises for women targeting stomach, thighs and underarm?
    I know it takes at minimum 25 to 30 min of cardio a day to get anywhere. However what are the best toning / fat loss exercises for the stomach upper and lower, thighs and underarms? These are my problem areas… I can not seem to find an answer to my question. Every link wants me to buy a book, video or drug. Any one have any advice on these three areas??? That wont cost me $$$$$$$$$$

    • ANSWER:
      You are, to a certain degree, on the right track but the fact is without the proper nutrition, 90% of the exercise you do counts for nothing.

      In order to burn fat, you must be in a caloric deficit and create the right hormonal environment for fat loss through clean dieting and proper exercise.

      I can give you a few exercises to do that will help you burn some fat, but sooner or later you will hit a plateau and will stop burning fat due to a poor diet.

      For stomach and thighs, you'd want to superset lower-body exercises with abdominals for example:

      Bodyweight Squats - Hanging Leg Raises
      Bulgarian Split Squats - Decline Crunches
      Lunges - Regular Crunches

      Focus on a full, controlled range of motion for the first week. Then add speed the following week, then add load the week after, as an example. Not everyone is the same so you have to find out what works best for you.

      After an intense workout, finishing up with an intense bout of cardio for around 10-15 minutes would be a good start to boost that fat loss. Cardio does not work alone as it only strips you of your Lean Body Mass (LBM), and LBM is responsible for fat loss as Muscle is an active tissue.

      After an intense workout, the body says, "What in the world did you just do to me? I had better hold on to this muscle or I won't last in the gym again!" The body then finds the next thing to burn and that is fat, so cardio after workout is always best.

      There is plenty more to it but if you need any further help don't hesitate to get in touch.

      Good luck

  2. QUESTION:
    a few questions about weight loss, toning exercises, supplements and better looks?
    I've been packing on weight since i stopped having a very active lifestyle (run 5 km every day and go to the gym every second week, walk everywhere).
    I'm now 27 yrs old and have cellulite on my posterior thighs (I'm 5'2' or 160 cm tall and weigh about 126 lbs or ~56 kgs).
    I've been going to the gym like 4 times a week, but i've been inconsistent with my workouts (didn't do the exact same machines every day, but tried to do the same reps with the same weight)
    1) does the cellulite show more when you lose weight? because i think i've lost the puffy fat and now i have ugly dimples (the older fat) on my legs
    2)stupid question: can i really prevent stretch marks? i try putting lotions on with cocoa butter, but now i have stretch marks too.
    3) what workouts have done wonders to your body? fat-loss and toning exercises examples?
    4) do you guys do cardio before or after lifting weights?
    5) i think it will take me a lot of time to resemble an attractive woman, so I wanna ask you guys, how many years have you been training to look your best?
    6) I take CLA's, fish oil, chromium, sodium-enhanced extended release ALA's...have you guys tried sesamin? what are your opinions on other supplements? oh, and no thermogenics, please. my heart always goes into arrhythmia (PAC's) and I also live in the desert. I take glyco-maize pre-workout if i want some carbs and some whey post-workout.
    thank you for your time
    @Afrina: thanks, those are hormone-based supplements, dangerous imo, but thanks! I almost tried epistane in the past too lol

    • ANSWER:
      Firstly you do not have to stop having an active lifestyle nor go to the gym, a walk or jog around your area every second day will suffice

      1) No it will not, i'm not sure exactly what you are on about but the ugly dimples are probably just where your legs still have a certain degree of fat on them. That being said 56Kg is a normal weight for a woman, so the problem could well just be untoned muscle
      2) Male, not a clue. I presume there are ways & many scams out there
      3) jogging, all you need alongside a healthy diet
      4) when i do lift weights i jog previous, no specific reason why i just like to get the cardio out of the way rather than when i'm fatigued from lifting.
      5) Chances are you already are attractive, studies show women up-size themselves 15% when looking in mirrors despite when shown 3d images being able to guess their size relatively accurate
      6) I don't use supplements bar the odd multi-vitamin like any meat-eater. All the nutrition i need is in my vegetarian diet, it is very likely if you are eating meat & a decent diet that you are well above the protein requirement (daily & necessary to build muscle) + whey protein is only used after heavy workout, excess protein is pretty high in calories bested only by fat. Why have a carb drink when you can just eat a grain cereal like muesli? Better nutrition + carbs at a much cheaper price

      What you need to do is ditch this Anne Collins thing and go to a weight loss spa. I went to Fitness Ridge Weight Loss Spa in St. George, UT and lost 34 pounds in 4 weeks. Great hiking and terrific staff.

  4. QUESTION:
    For Fat loss which type of cardio is better?
    Hey guys,
    I want to lose some weight as most of the women want, shall I do long and low intense cardio like walking 5,5 speed 30 min or shall I make intense cardio running for 10 min and do some exercises like squat? I need ur help I constantly gain weight as the weather turns cold, it increases my appetite:) Thanks all!!

    • ANSWER:
      It's all in the heart rate my friend,

      here is a guide for burning fat most effectively!

      Warm up for 5 minutes at 5.5mph, then up the speed to 10, depending on age get your heart rate as close to the following criteria as possible

      20Yrs 180bpm
      30Yrs 170bpm
      40Yrs 160bpm
      50Yrs 150bpm
      60Yrs 140bpm
      Do this for 20minutes
      then do a 5 minute cooldown at 5.5mph

      that's the perfect guide, if 20mins is a bit long then drop it to 15, this should burn around 350-450 calories depending on variables and convert fat to muscle everywhere except your arms

      Good luck
      A!

  5. QUESTION:
    Which muscles are the easiest to build for the purpose of fat loss.?
    I am a woman who is trying to lose fat (well weight, but especially fat). I've read that muscle burns more calories than fat, so am starting to incoporate beginner weight training into my workouts a the gym. I'm just using those machines that show you how to do the exercise. I would like to build and tone muscle, but not actually get bigger in size. I'm currently a 14 and trying to get down to a 10. Are there muscles or muscle groups that are easier to build than others? My main purpose right now is to burn excess calories. Should I concentrate on one area more than another? Due to knee complications, I cannot to traditional leg press, or leg extension. I can do a modified version of them on special machines as long as I am careful.

    Thank you in advance for your helpful responses.

    • ANSWER:
      Your leg muscles. They are the female's largest muscle group (includes the gluteus muscles too). Building these muscles will help burn calories (not fat) even at rest. Do take note, if you keep eating, you will be feeding your muscles and the muscles will get BIGGER, and DENSER, thus negating any weight loss in numbers, and perhaps not burning off those fatty areas.

      To avoid tiredness due to lower calorie intake/ higher energy output, take a multivitamin and eat apples ( proven to keep you more alert than coffee!)

  6. QUESTION:
    In what order does a women lose fat off her body averagely ?
    I heard that when men diet they lose fat from they stomach first and then other areas of their body, and when it comes to women they don’t lose fat from there stomach until the end…
    What I wanted to know is if women lose fat from their stomach area last, where do women start to notice losing fat first at the start of the diet, and so on
    Is there an order of where the average women loses fat off their body?
    If anyone knows or has experienced or seen an order of fat loss on themselves could you let me know cause it would be a great help seeing as I have just started a diet and would love to know.

    Then again for all I know this could be a total myth, but im asking anyway because this is what yahoo answer is for.

    P.S I don’t need any diet and exercise tips, im on the perfect diet and exercise plan set for me, I just wanted to ask this question.

    • ANSWER:
      It totally depends on what your body shape is - this is true for men and women.

      For example, I am an Apple shape. This does NOT mean that I am round like an apple lol, it means that when I put on weight, the first place it is noticeable is around my middle; similarly when I lose weight my stomach is the first thing that shrinks.

      My sister on the other hand is a Pear shape, so when she puts on weight it goes to her hips and thighs first, and when she loses weight, these are the areas it goes from first.

      Some people will only show weight gain/loss on their face, while others on their chest, stomach, hips, thighs, bums etc etc.

      There is no actual order in which you lose weight; you lose weight from all over your body equally, it just shows more quickly in different areas, depending on your body shape.

      There is also no exercise that can help you lose weight from one particular area (you can tone up specific areas, but not lose actual fat from one area).

      Good luck with the diet :)

  7. QUESTION:
    Zantrex-3 Fat Burner: Does it work?
    I've been doing a little research on Zantrex 3 and I've come to realize that it has really serious side affects for those who are sensitive to caffine, I, however, am not.
    I really need to lose weight fast, but more importantly, tummy fat, so I'm more interested in a pill which will increase my total Fat Loss overall as quickly as possible.
    I drink plenty of water and I do love to exercise, but over time college and working decreased my time and energy to work out and maintain a healthy weight.
    So, my question is does Zantrex-3 Fat Burner (red bottle) work in terms of increasing amount of pure fat? Or is there one that is better? I don't want anything too strong, just something (a booster) to increase amount of fat lost through exercise.

  8. QUESTION:
    Why are so many women fat these days?????
    Have programmes like Look Good Naked and adverts like Dove, etc now made it acceptable for women to live unhealthy, sedentry lifestyles, happy with their bloated lard?

    I am not saying stick thin women are the ideal, but i can't help thinking that at a time when we have never been so aware of the importance of healthy eating and exercise, why are 2 in every 3 women classed as overweight or obese?

    Is it becuase of those horrible b!tch manuals like Cosmo and Glamour, etc which trade fact for entertainment and write about a load of diets (none of which work) which are sold to women insecure and gullable enough to buy and beleive them?

    Why do they not realise that there are no quick fixes to weight loss and that to lose weight, you just need to stop eating sh!t, eat healthy foods, exercise rigorously and regularly and give it some time and commitment?

    It is sickening.

    What is your opinion? (And yes, I am aware that a lot of men are fat too, but this isn't my question).
    I have "singled" out women because I find women attractive - but not when they resemble Mrs Blobby.

    • ANSWER:
      Dieting can make you fat! Women have been encouraged to diet for years now. From the minute you get a small belly at the age of nine or ten and your breasts start forming you are made conscious of your shape. Once you fall into this trap it is a vicious circle, you hop from one diet to another, one exercise Regine to another.
      If we just encouraged our children to love their bodies whilst they are forming and except this as normal you would probably see more healthy happy well balanced teenagers and, of course, adults.
      Holding up images of body shapes which are not obtainable, airbrushing and distorting photos; designers who make clothes to fit mannequins rather than people, etc. All adds to the pressure.
      Most of the really fat people I know have low self esteem and quite often hide behind their weight.
      I don't think most of the girls in the Dove campaign are grossly over weight.
      Womens bodies are made for carrying children, their stomachs are supposed to be softer than a mans. The pelvis is wider to allow for child birth. The breasts are for lactating. This is part of what we are.
      Until we all grow up as a society and take all this on board, women will continue to diet and binge and not only ruin their figures but their health in later life.

  9. QUESTION:
    diet to aid fat loss?
    although i have been doing aerobic and toning exercises for about 18 months 4 times a week for an hour each time,eating sensibly,although not doing without my treats at weekend,i am at a loss as although i am a size uk 10 for my age 52 is quite good,i really cant fathom out how to tone up my stomach,it is flat,but flabby,is there any way i can make it firm,i see bodybuilding women of my age with a toned torso,has anyone got any tips how to do this,or if body building will help,and what diet do i need,i am vegetarian,my legs are very muscular and toned, and my arms are getting there,its just my torso although i look very slim,it is still flabby looking, can any body building person out there give me any help thanks
    what is this growth hormone is it legit and would the doc prescribe it to me

    • ANSWER:
      Hey, Wow firstly your a dedicated woman,

      These woman you say that have toned torsos, dont necessarily needed to have taken growth hormones, Unless they look like they have, the perhaps.

      I recommend you buy Soya Mince, is what Vegetarians use as a supplement to meat, It has high amounts of protein. Though it does taste a lil bland, Just add it into a recipe. Also i think you should eat pulses, chickpeas and red lentils to name a few.

      Since your flabby, you wont need to loose any more weight, the problem is your skin will be loose now, from your great weight lose. You should try pec exercises.I'm assuming you dont have a gym? which doesn't matter.. You'll need some dumbells and you want to lay on the ground, with your arms strecthed out on the ground at your shoulder, you then want to bring the weights forward from your chest up into the air, then back to your shoulders. Also you could try whilst standing up, is hold the dumbells in front of you, then raise them up to the sides (left and right) then slowly moving them back down, repeat again, This exercises can be hard, but works your pecs.

      I honestly doubt your GP would prescribe growth hormones, their only ever prescribed under to people who necessarily need it .. I dont think you should use drug hormones anyway. Just good old protein.

  10. QUESTION:
    Best diet and exercise plan for muscle building and fat loss?
    Hi, I'm 28, Female, 5'3, 123-125 lbs. I am a runner, I train and run in two 1/2 marathons per year. With all this running I cannot seem to cut the fat off my body. I am hungry all the time when I am running and seem to crave sugar and junk, i never gain weight but i never lose it either. I am inspired by women that are very fit and lean. I do NOT want giant, and very pronounced muscles. I want to look fit, toned and sexy. My weight lifting consists of boy-pushups 2 sets of 20, and crunches-leg lifts-plank. Could someone help me get started on diet and an excersize plan or point me in the direction of a great site to visit? Supplements?
    Thank You

    • ANSWER:
      Your described body measurements give me the impression that you're actually quite alluring already and it would be a shame and a crime if anyone kicked you out of bed based on what you're telling us.

      The only advice I'd give you is to get more disciplined with cutting out the junk and sweets immediately after intense exercise. Just don't eat it. You've already demonstrated that you've got the exercise goals within your grasp...just expand it to your food intake.

      Another thing; you didn't really describe in sufficient detail your exercise regimen. You said you trained for two half-marathons in a year, but that leaves a large amount of time not accounted for. Are you running regularly? How much?

      Cross training by bicycling can also benefit you. 2-2 and a half hours of intense bicycling can burn almost as many calories as running, depending on your average running speed.

Make sure you're drinking plenty of water, and NO SODA! The weight will go, and you'll feel happier and healthier. If you get bored, go for a walk or a run, or swim.

  13. QUESTION:
    How much yoga can I incorporate in my exercise regimen when trying to burn fat?
    I weigh over 240 lbs. I'm 5'4". I'm miserable with myself and like all women, it's my Old-New years resolution to lose this weight. I love yoga (yet haven't been doing it for a few years), but I don't want to over-indulge in it to the point where I'm not practicing more beneficial exercises for weight loss. WHAT WOULD BE A GOOD WEEKLY YOGA BALANCE?

    • ANSWER:
      20 minutes a day, three or four days a week is about all I can manage. Losing weight isn't so much about exercising as it is eating the right foods, however. Eating a diet high in nutritious raw fruits and vegetables will go a lot further than trying to exercise more than you want. It's much easier, too. Look into the diets linked at the bottom of the page. Here's my weightloss blog:

      Here’s all you need to lose weight all over, look good, and get really healthy. First, you have to realize there is no quick, long lasting weight loss plan or pill that is going to do the trick. It’s purely mental. You have to learn to “Eat to live, don’t live to eat”. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? It is, if you understand that you are going to be reprogramming how you think about eating for the next few weeks. Old habits die hard, right? Not really. You get rid of bad habits by replacing them with good habits. If you learn to count your calories, keep calorie intake lower than output, exercise moderately, and eat only healthy food, you will lose weight. That’s a fact. All it takes is repetition. All success stories have this in common: The successful folks among us know how to be patient, persistent, and consistent. Set a goal, write it down, and stick with it. The benefits of feeling good will outweigh any sense of sacrifice you might feel about having to push away that cake and ice cream. Here are some helpful and healthy links to help you get started on your way:

  14. QUESTION:
    Is there a maximum recommended dumbell weight for women's strength training?
    Hi, so I understand women should lift heavy weight to lose fat which is what I have been doing for 2 months and which has worked extremely effectively for fat loss. I also know women getting too bulky from weight training is a myth and that it is rare due to our mucher lower testosterone, but what I am confused about is that I have rapidly progressed and currently use 8kilo (17.5 pound) dumbells in each hand for major body exercises and a little lighter for the various arm exercises and as I reach a point of being able to do more than16 reps for 5-8 sets I go up in weight and my trainer believes I will soon be progressing to 10 kilo dumbells (22 pounds) in each hand for 8 sets of 8 reps. That seems like a lot and I can't seem to find much reference to this on the net. Is there a point where weights are so heavy that women actually do bulk? I am really only looking to lose weight and keep a toned body.

    • ANSWER:
      If you continue to increase the weight you lift, your muscles will continue to grow.

      There is no magic number that is suddenly going to make your muscles huge. They will continue to grow at a very slow rate. Eventually, you'll get to a point where you like the amount of muscle you have, and you can switch to a program to maintain that muscle mass.

  15. QUESTION:
    weight loss for women?
    hey
    I want to loose some of the fat in my upper arms but I don't want to down size on my chest but somebody told me that that was one of the first places you loose weight...
    also in my legs to and belly.
    what would be the best exercises to do???

    • ANSWER:
      Well, for the arms you can do bicep/ hammer curls and do tricep dips straight after them. For legs you want to be doing weighted squats and lunges while for the belly planks and side planks, just build up how long you can hold them. However, you really need to be doing full-body workouts while also doing intervals instead of cardio. Intervals involve going hard for say 30 seconds, then easy for 30 seconds and doing 6 - 8 sets of this, best done on the bike. All the best

  16. QUESTION:
    Strength training program for women? [weight loss?] PLEASE HELP!?
    Im on a diet and im doing cardio, now i just need to add in strength training for weight loss, i want to lose the stomach fat and the thigh fat, can anyone make me a plan for strength training at home or tell me what your doing? Im not in a gym, i do my exercising at home. 3 day or a 4 day plan would be wonderful! Please help! thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      It's very hard to lose weight in a specific area because like gaining weight, the body just does it wherever it wants to. Diet and exercise are great, but in your case, you want to build muscle which will burn even more fat. I would suggest buying a couple sets of free weights (such as two five pounds and two ten pound weights) and then trying some of these exercises:

      http://www.strength-training-woman.com/strength-training-exercises.html

      There are sections that tell you what muscle group the exercises target, but I would try to work out every muscle group possible. The best thing to do, in my opinion, is to alternate muscle groups on Monday and Wednesday, then Tuesday and Thursday. For example, focus on upper body/arms on MW and on TR focus on lower body/legs. Just pick a few exercises and do those for a couple of weeks and then pick new exercises that work the same muscle groups for the next couple of weeks. That way the body doesn't get used to a certain motion and it will continue to build muscle.

  17. QUESTION:
    Is this realy true about losing body fat?
    Burn Fat

    There is no fat loss magic to doing cardio on an empty stomach. In fact, most trainers “in-the-know” are using intervals instead of slow, boring cardio to help their clients burn fat fast. Plus, who wants to be doing boring cardio at 6am while their stomach is rumbling? If you could find better home fitness workouts to burn fat, wouldn’t you do those instead?

    Myth #2 - You Have to Do Cardio in the Fat Burning Zone

    By exercising in the fat burning “Zone”, as some folks like to call it, you only burn a few extra calories than if you weren’t doing any exercise at all! Slow, boring cardio workouts are not the best way to lose belly fat. If you truly want to change your body, you need to use short, burst exercise home fitness workouts.

    Myth #3 - You Have to Do Cardio 7 Days Per Week

    You don’t need to workout everyday. The truth is, you only need to do 3 short home fitness workouts per week of 45 minutes.

    Myth #4 You Have to Do Cardio for at Least 20 Minutes Before You Start Burning Fat

    We’re burning fat all the time, even while you sit here and read this message. Sure, exercise increases our fat burning, but it’s not as though the first 20 minutes of any workout don’t burn fat. That makes no sense at all! I’ll show you how the short, burst exercise system helps you achieve more fat loss in less than half the time of a regular cardio workout.

    Myth #5 – You Can’t Lose Fat and Gain Muscle at the Same Time

    Scientific research and my experience says, “Yes, you can!” A recent study found that men and women can gain muscle and lose fat at the same time

  18. QUESTION:
    is this realy true about losing body fat?
    Burn Fat

    There is no fat loss magic to doing cardio on an empty stomach. In fact, most trainers “in-the-know” are using intervals instead of slow, boring cardio to help their clients burn fat fast. Plus, who wants to be doing boring cardio at 6am while their stomach is rumbling? If you could find better home fitness workouts to burn fat, wouldn’t you do those instead?

    Myth #2 - You Have to Do Cardio in the Fat Burning Zone

    By exercising in the fat burning “Zone”, as some folks like to call it, you only burn a few extra calories than if you weren’t doing any exercise at all! Slow, boring cardio workouts are not the best way to lose belly fat. If you truly want to change your body, you need to use short, burst exercise home fitness workouts.

    Myth #3 - You Have to Do Cardio 7 Days Per Week

    You don’t need to workout everyday. The truth is, you only need to do 3 short home fitness workouts per week of 45 minutes.

    Myth #4 You Have to Do Cardio for at Least 20 Minutes Before You Start Burning Fat

    We’re burning fat all the time, even while you sit here and read this message. Sure, exercise increases our fat burning, but it’s not as though the first 20 minutes of any workout don’t burn fat. That makes no sense at all! I’ll show you how the short, burst exercise system helps you achieve more fat loss in less than half the time of a regular cardio workout.

    Myth #5 – You Can’t Lose Fat and Gain Muscle at the Same Time

    Scientific research and my experience says, “Yes, you can!” A recent study found that men and women can gain muscle and lose fat at the same time

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds about right.
      The point of doing high intensity interval training is that it allows your body to use more calories during the rest of the day, so you have a shorter workout that increases your fat burning ability the rest of the day vs one longer workout that burns the calories just during the workout. Doing cardio in the "Fat Burning" zone is also sort of dumb, because you'll burn a heck of a lot more calories when you are doing more intense work. Doing cardio for at least 20 minutes? I can get a killer workout in way less than that.

  19. QUESTION:
    How long until I see visible weight loss results?
    I have been dieting for 2 weeks now, and exercising as well. I am starting to feel like I have lost weight, but I can't see that I've lost weight. How long does it take to see visible results? I run almost everyday for at least 30 minutes and do an ab workout as well. I am also eating enough, just having smaller portions and choosing healthier food. More than anything I want to get ride of my thighs and stomach fat. I am currently 5'7" and weigh close to 160 pounds.

    Also, where on the body do women typically see fat loss first?

    • ANSWER:
      After how long will you see visible weight loss depends upon the quantity of exercise you take daily. In your case, i think it'll take about a month or even more. Cause weight gaining is easy but weight losing is extremely difficult. A persons only lose weight when he is totally Dependant on the stored fatty acids in the body. This doesn't mean at all that you should stop eating anything. I think stomach will get shape first.

  20. QUESTION:
    What's my target heart rate for fat loss?
    I'm a 31 year old woman, I weigh 263.5 lbs, 5' 3.5"...not healthy, obviously. I've gained 100 lbs in the last 3 years!

    I've seen the doctor and my cholesterol, blood pressure and sugar is all perfectly normal (!?!), she gave me to go ahead to start an exercise program.

    I have a heart rate monitor on my elliptical but I have no idea what is a good zone to be in. I don't want to go over and kill myself but I also want to make sure I'm in a good zone to burn fat.

    I did an aerobic video (yesterday) for 30 minutes and after the cool down I checked my rate on a little hand held monitor I got with my Brita water filters (free gift -- might be junk, IDK), it said 117. I know I should have checked during the workout, but I didn't want to pause the workout lest I get lazy and fail to return to it...

    So can anyone tell me what I should be aiming for? Please not the percents and stuff...just give me the numbers so I can write them down without having to calculate. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      The fat burning zone is a misused and misunderstood concept.

      You are ALWAYS burning a mix of fat and carbohydrates. The proportions change somewhat depending on the intensity of your session, but for weight loss purposes, that really isn't important. The amount of fat burned per minute is going to be roughly constant even though you burn much more glycogen (carbohydrate product) as you approach your aerobic threshold. The important thing is total calories burned.

      Nobody can give you exact numbers because those can only be determined by experimenting with your heart rate monitor, and even then, your threshold will change significantly as you get in better shape. The formulas are only an approximation. Making sense of, and productively using heart rate as a training tool takes a lot of use to understand what YOUR numbers mean. For me, I try to maintain around 150-155bpm on typical 2-3 hour training rides. While racing, I'll be well over 160, getting into the low 180's during sprints. Bear in mind that I'm an endurance athlete, although my daughter is older than you... Its unlikely you could approach those numbers until you get in better condition.

      In your situation, perceived exertion is a much better tool. For your purposes, try to maintain a pace that makes you breath hard, but still able to hold a conversation.

      For way more information than you wanted on fat metabolism, see below.

  21. QUESTION:
    Apparently 75% of women in my locality feel fat. Do you feel fat?
    I was just reading my local paper today and a study, commissioned by a "natural healthcare company" which promote a weight loss product, had some staggering results:

    * Almost half said they feel self conscious [about their weight]
    * 9 out of 10 women admit to having "fat days"
    * 53% said they are uncomfortable being seen naked in front of their partners and 49% say they are uncomfortable undressing in a communal changing room because of their body shape
    * Only 25% believed they are the perfect weight, 75% believing they are overweight. 77% of those blame lack of exercise and poor diet for being overweight
    * 59% believe slim women tend to succeed more in both their personal and professional life
    * 4 out of 10 say they diet constantly
    * 81% said the ideal dress size is between 10 and 12

    What do you think about this? Do you think it's an accurate reflection of women's opinion in general? And most importantly, do you think that these women are not overweight (defined as "more body fat than is optimally healthy") but are made to feel that way by our culture?

    • ANSWER:
      mainly what people see in the magazines when they see all these skinny women makes people in society think that they are fat and over weight, but they don't realize that they are perfect just the way they are. infact most of the guys i know like women with meat in their bones.

  22. QUESTION:
    Weight gain and loss for women of different ages (teens vs early 20s)?
    So I've always been pretty small and never really had much of a problem with weight, and if I did get a little heavier than I wanted, it was easy for me to lose weight quickly.

    Now I'm 20 years old, and this just isn't true anymore, it seems, as I try to lose my 'freshman fifteen' over the summer. So, a couple questions:

    --Am I naturally supposed to be gaining weight at this age, or is my weight gain only from my diet and exercise habits (which are less than stellar, but not particularly worse than the average persons)? I've heard this, but I was never sure if it was true.

    --Is it really harder to lose weight the older you get? Sure, you might have less time and that sort of thing, but I'm talking about physically, does your body hang onto fat better as you get older.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, it really is harder for most of us. As your body ages, all its mechanisms slow down, including metabolism, so what you were able to eat without concern in your 20's now goes straight to your hips or thighs when you get older. The female body does lay down fat more easily as it ages and for many women, the onset of menopause (and the consequent cessation of all oestrogen and progesterone) can cause a general "thickening" and "softening" of the entire body.

      It is not only the laying down of fat that is a problem as you age - the foundation for osteo porosis (brittle bones) later in life is laid down in the 20's and 30's (by poor diet and insufficient weight-bearing exercise). For many women, by the time they realise they have it, it is too late to do much about it.

      There is absolutely nothing you can do to prevent this ageing process, however, you can keep Mother Nature "at bay" by eating healthily and well, drinking only in moderation, don't smoke or ingest other drugs and get at least 30 minutes of aerobic-type exercise every day. If you can also add to this regime a couple of good cardio/weights workouts a week, then you are doing everything you can to maintain your body's "young" shape well into your latter years.

      As always, there's no avoiding it - at the end of the day it all comes back to sensible diet and exercise throughout your life.

  23. QUESTION:
    There are so many weight loss questions...and this is another one...?
    Tons and tons of questions on here about weight loss have answers that say you can not burn fat by doing exercises (like crunches for a flabby tummy) you can only build muscle. Why would so many workout videos say to do crunches or the bicycle thing if it really doesn't burn fat from that area?

    And I don't understand how doing machines can ONLY build muscle and not burn fat because how many muscular women do you see who have boobs? Machines HAVE to burn fat, especially when so many women say that when losing weight the first place they lose fat is their boobs. Arm exercises that incorporate your chest like bench pressing seems to make women's chest smaller.

    Is the whole machines don't burn fat they just build muscle thing PROVEN or is it just something people on yahoo answers say....because it really seems like it can't be true.

    Everyone says you can't work on one specific area and lose weight in that area but seriously, then why would so many work out videos emphasize working your "core" and stomach exercises if they didn't think it would help you flatten your stomach...

    I just don't get it.

    And I used to do side crunches a ton every night and it definitely helped with my love handles....so I just think it's bs and I want to see what everyone elses opinions are.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sorry to say but the people were correct. Doing crunches will burn fat on your stomach. It will simply build muscle which will poke through the fat AND burn fat from anywhere in your body.

      Muscle is harder to maintain than fat. So the muscle you have the faster your body burns fat and calories. That is why muscular women have small boobs. Because boobs are a fat storage and if they are muscular they have trained their whole body and burned fat in all places not just where they have trained.

      Your reduction of fat in your "love handles" or external obliques is because the muscles in that area have gotten bigger and more defined and can show through the fat. And the overall loss of fat everywhere.

      Different people burn fat in different places. It is possible that your body chooses love handles.

      So once again targeted fat reduction is a myth that consists in believing that exercising and training a particular body part will preferentially shed the fat on that part. One cannot reduce fat from one area of the body to the exclusion of others. Most of the energy derived from fat gets to the muscle through the bloodstream and reduces stored fat in the entire body, from the last place where fat was deposited. Exercise might help reduce overall body fat and shrink the size of fat cells.

  24. QUESTION:
    What diet pill/weight loss pill/supplement/vitamin for women should I take to kick start?
    I am 21 and a female. I'm 5'4 and 139 pounds. I exercise doing 3-4 days a week cardio intervals, weight training, resistance training, stretching, and circuits. I eat very healthfully, I've done the eat enough calories, eat less calories, eat more calories. I've done the 6 small meals, I've done the 3 meals and 2 snacks, I've done every food diet possible that doesn't involve meat(besides fish once in awhile) because I am a vegetarian. No matter what I try I cannot LOSE weight. I understand muscle weighs more than fat and to burn fat you build muscle and gain weight first, but I am not muscular nor fat so that doesn't apply to me, and I've kept this steady weight over the last 2 or so years. Except last year when there was a death in the family and I dropped weight like crazy from stress and getting on a medication to deal. But, I've been off the meds for awhile and living a healthy lifestyle and I can't lose it(I'm looking to be miniminally 115-120, less if possible). My BMI says I'm normal, but I don't feel good with myself. I get that the BMI doesn't say everything about a body, but to look at me I have a thin look with curves if that makes sense. I'm 34c/27/36. Anyways, what I'm getting at is does anyone know any supplements/pills/etc that can help me kickstart a weight loss, I'm not going to replace my lifestyle with it, I just need a booster. Please give me some suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      There aren't any and you don't weigh enough to qualify for the only one with FDA approval.
      Nothing for it but sensible eating and exercise.

      If you eat 3,500 calories more than your body needs, you will put on about 1 pound. If you use up 3,500 calories more than you eat, you will lose about 1 pound in weight.

  25. QUESTION:
    Women ,any tips on weight loss and excercise.?
    I have been on around a 1400 calorie controlled diet for about 6 weeks in hope of shedding about a stone.I ballooned up to 12 stone after having my son.I have cereal for breakfast,tuna salad for lunch and chicken,potatoes and veg for dinner as an example.
    I'm still feeling quite hungry and thought by now the hunger pangs would have subsided.I hate thinking about food all the time and fed up of always feeling hungry.I do have the occasinal blip on a weekend but i try to correct this in the week as my sister told me it takes 5 days for the food to turn to fat,so you have time to correct it by exercising more.
    I'm using my exercise bike about 5 times a week for about 20-30 mins each time. I'm pretty unfit so its not exactly vigorous but its at a reasonable speed.Is that enough exercise ? I'm finding that hard enough and don't think i can manage much more at the moment.
    I have definitely lost a bit of weight as my clothes are looser,I don't weigh myself as a rule,but I reckon I have lost around 8 -10lb or so.
    I'm feeling quite fed up and wonder if anyone has any tips,I don't want to give up now i've come this far.
    My friend started this diet with me so I have moral support from her,but she seems to be doing so much better than me and she doesn't even really exercise as such.
    Any info would be really appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like you could benefit from a full body cleanse. A friend of mine uses a pomegranate product called Pomevie, it flushes all the waste out your system.

  26. QUESTION:
    Building muscle while losing fat=Frustrating process. PLEASE HELP!!?
    I'm 5'8", female, 20 years old and weigh 139 lbs as of this morning. The thing is I weighed 138 yesterday. I did nothing during the day that would cause weight gain. And I know that it's impossible for a woman to put on 1 lb of muscle overnight. I'm doing everything right (to the best of my knowledge anyway). I'm on a high protein, moderate carb, and low fat diet. I do boot camp 4-5 days a week which is a lot of weight training and compound exercises. I also do pilates 3 days a week. I've been doing this for about a month and there has been virtually no change in my weight. I weighed 144 when I started. And I'm not losing consistently. Some days I'll gain a few ounces or a pound even and some days I'll lose or I'll stay the same. It's a slow process. I look better overall but the only place where I really notice a difference is my hips. I'm not eating very many calories. I usually keep it under 950 cals a day. I know that's considered undereating for a lot of people but I used to be anorexic so my metabolism is messed up. If I eat even 1500 cals a day I end up gaining weight. And I'm still maintaining or building with the amount I'm eating now. So what should I do to speed up fat loss? Drop my calories? I'm thinking of adding cardio a few times a week to speed things up. Any suggestions? What kind of exercise and for how long? Or is there a specific kind of food or supplement I should be taking? I want to weigh between 125-130 and be really toned and fit. What else can I do to make that happen and soon? And I've recently started eating more fruits but not enough to cause carb overload. Usually about 3 servings of fruit per day. Is that the problem? I heard that fruit isn't conducive to weight loss. Thanks for reading and thanks for the help!

    • ANSWER:
      You really need to eat more. I understand your fear of gaining but you need to slowly get your calories up. Try increasing your calories only by a 100 calories or so every couple of days. If you are continuing your bootcamp classes, you won't gain if you get the calories gradually up. The key word here is gradually. Getting the right amount of calories will help stabilize your hormone levels and crank up your metabolism. It may also help to go a little bit heavier with the weights. I don't recommend boot camp style classes more than 4x per week because the potential for injury is too great without enough recovery time. The pilates classes may not help you all that much. I would suggest replacing pilates for a little while with cardio sessions.

      The weight fluctuations are normal. You're building lean mass so your weight will include the additional muscle tissue, glycogen and water that comes with weight training (not to mention the contents of your digestive system). Try not to focus on the scale but instead pick up a set of plastic Accumeasure calipers and learn how to measure your body fat.

  27. QUESTION:
    Trouble Burning Fat/Losing Pounds/Inches?
    Hello,

    I need help. I am 5'3 and 170lbs. I lost nearly 40lbs (was formerly 210lbs) by exercise and diet. However that was in August of 2010, now nearly 6 + months later. After hiring a personal trainer, home training/lifting at home 3 times a week. As well as cutting soda and other beverages from my daily intake leaving only water and milk for breakfast. I even started eating Nutrisystem for Women as well as taking 3,000mg of Vitamin C, and 1500mg of Fish Oil for Omega 3's and a Multi-vitamin daily to see if this would help.

    Again several months later it seems I cant get away from this plateau. I can't lose anything beyond 170lbs and I bounce between that and 175lbs but generally stay within that range. I don't know what to do anymore to increase my fat burn, my inch and pound loss.

    I don't want to resort to surgery, or take any type of HCG, fat loss pills, but after all these life changes and going through 2 personal trainers and switching up the regemin of my work-outs I don't know what more I can do aside from go the surgery/HCG route.

    My goal is 140-150lbs

    Someone please help!

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

  28. QUESTION:
    Should weight loss be that hard to maintain?
    No matter how you lose weight, once you get down to where you want to be it shouldn't be 'that' difficult to maintain it. During weight loss women are instructed not to consume less than 1200 and men not less than 1500 calories a day, which can be restrictive, but not 'that' much.

    Once off the diet, the average female and male adult will burn 2000 to 3000 calories a day without making time for exercise. If you only eat three meals a day, then 665-1000 calories is a generous sandwich or plate with a drink on the side. If you include an hour of moderate exercise, you can add about 300-500 calories to your daily total.

    I don't think 4-6 small meals throughout the day is the way to go. Claims that it "revs" up your metabolism are by far overrated. It gets you thinking way more than you need to, promotes tooth decay, gets you looking at the clock, and doesn't allow you to have decent sized meals.

    Eating three meals a day, 4-5 hours apart, without bothering to look at the clock, and just having an idea of how many calories you're consuming without having to pull a calculator out at every meal, seems to be the way to go. On 'actual' special occasions, you may eat thousands of calories over your approximate daily limit, but nobody ever became fat from this. I am talking from personal experience. What are your thoughts?

    • ANSWER:
      I have to agree with you. Nobody gains a ton of weight after one night of a three coarse meal, some desert and a cappachino. I also agree that 3 meals a day, no snacks is the way to go. You can be full and go longer periods without eating, rather than the constant eating of smaller meals. A meal is a meal, so when you say small, people can go from 200 - 700 calories per meal. Rather than the regular, old fashioned Breakfast - Lunch - Dinner.

  29. QUESTION:
    Weight gain and loss as you get older for women?
    So I've always been pretty small and never really had much of a problem with weight, and if I did get a little heavier than I wanted, it was easy for me to lose weight quickly.

    Now I'm 20 years old, and this just isn't true anymore, it seems, as I try to lose my 'freshman fifteen' over the summer. So, a couple questions:

    --Am I naturally supposed to be gaining weight at this age, or is my weight gain only from my diet and exercise habits (which are less than stellar, but not particularly worse than the average persons)? I've heard this, but I was never sure if it was true.

    --Is it really harder to lose weight the older you get? Sure, you might have less time and that sort of thing, but I'm talking about physically, does your body hang onto fat better as you get older.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, it is harder to lose weight as you get older. Your metabolism slows down at an increasing rate as the years go by. This is mostly because you are reaching maturity and no longer need the "get up and go" of your younger years when you were growing. You are right at the turning point. Usually women's metabolism hits a high point around 15 and then slowly starts to decline, with the biggest drop between 18 and 20 years of age. Now is the time to get serious about your work out regiment and really watch what you are eating (which it sounds like you are doing an ok job of) Remember, it is very important to keep active WHILE eating normally to keep your metabolism up. If you "diet" heavily, your body goes into starvation mode and every little thing you eat that is extra goes toward storage. The other effect is the change in hormones. Your body has less growth hormones going around in your blood so all that energy that you needed to grow is now getting turned into storage. so yes, again, your body is against you. Sorry :(

    • ANSWER:
      Hey! I've got a diet plan, but it'll take a month or three. Ok so here's the deal, first eat less drink more water but eat healthy, do a heavy breakfast, but eat steamed vegetables with boiled rice in lunch, and fruits only or take tea or green tea at night. The most important thing is don't drink water after any meal, it is main cause of gaining weight. Ok at night or early morning walk for 45 mins, the main thing is sweating, drink more water. Lie down and move ur legs like ur bicycling for abt 2-3 mins for a month then 5-6 mins after that. If u strictly follow this u'll be seeing noticable results in abt 2-3 weeks. Hope I helped u. :)

I'll do that for say a week and then the week after i'll feel so bad that i only have coffee and one digestive biscuit for a week. I know in my head that it isn't right but i can't stop myself. I HATE how i look. I won't even take my son swimming, he's only been once and he's 8 months old now.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm seeing a lot of excuses for why you can't do this. The first thing you need to do is change your mentality - NO EXCUSES! Planning to fail guarantees failure.

      The only way to lose weight, get fit and stay that way is the slow way – healthy diet and regular exercise.

      No dieting: dieting ends, a healthy diet is a lifetime of good habits. A basic healthy diet: lean meats, dark veggies, whole grains, lots of water; reduce processed carbs (soda pop is Satan!) and increase fiber. Snack on fruits and veggies instead of salt and sweets. WW plan encourages this sort of eating - use what you learned from Florine! Allow yourself a splurge once every two or three weeks – it’s easier to be good if you know there’s a treat in your future. Educate yourself – there are thousands of websites with nutrition information. You can tell the good ones – they aren’t selling a quick fix. Everybody has different needs - find what works for you and stick with it.

      Exercise: start easy and work your way up. Make the time 3-4 days a week – an hour walk with the stroller, a stroll on the treadmill, whatever. NO EXCUSES - it has to become a habit. After a few months start challenging yourself – add leg weights, join a gym, take dance classes, something. Add exercise to your day in small ways: take the stairs instead of the elevator, do isometrics at your desk, ride your bike to school instead of the bus. There are exercises you can do that involve your baby - healthy for you, and your baby will learn to be active, too.

      Sadly, exercise doesn’t burn enough calories to lose much weight – two miles on the treadmill equals about half of a Big Mac. But exercise is irreplaceable for a healthy heart, stamina and flexibility. That means a longer and more active lifespan. Again, education is the key – anatomy and physiology is the owner’s manual for your body. Avoid websites that are selling the Patented Nuclear Abdominatorizer of the Week – they are more interested in your wallet than your health.

      Don’t quit just because you fall off the wagon one or twelve times – that’s just an excuse for laziness. It took years to develop your bad habits; it will take time to change them. You will make mistakes - forgive yourself and get back to work.

      Remember – your biggest obstacles are laziness and unrealistic expectations. Your best tools are perseverance and education.

      Good Luck!

  32. QUESTION:
    Why does my mom constantly tell me I'm fat?
    I am 5'4" 130

    My mom always tells me to suck my stomach in. ALL DAY! She says men don't like fat woman. At dinner especially when guests are over it's mortifying. She monitors my portions and starts telling people about the weight loss plan she has for me. She's like oh your brother can eat a lot "brianna go have a rice cake" and it's soo annoying. please tell me how fat am i? i'm allmost 13. and i kind of have big boobs 32C but i always thought my legs and stomach was thin

    I have begun skipping breakfast and dinner. also i've been exercising a little bit. she wants me to be 100 lbs. what can i do to please her and make her shut up. i have already talked to her about my feelings, she really doesn't care.

    this is serious, so please be serious.
    oops typo i'm almost 14 *
    she buys tons of junk food but if i even go near the cabinet she will pinch my stomach and i seriously cry myself to sleep.
    sorry to add more details but the reason she hates fat people is because my dad cheated on her with an overweight woman. (divorced)

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Brianna,
      How sad that your mom is as insensitive as you claim. When she should be teaching you how to care about yourself and encouraging your self esteem, she is proving to you, how unhappy she is about herself. Happy people don't put people down. Unhappy people find faults in others.
      Literally, you should ask a doctor what he/she thinks is an ideal weight for you and then find a diet you like that will make you feel healthy, happy and energetic.
      Your mom's unhappiness (ex husband cheating with heavy woman) should be no reflection on you and her negative attitude and behavior towards you needs to stop.
      As a mom I am appalled that a mom would act this way toward her own daughter.
      The love I have for my adopted daughter is so great that I accept her for the beautiful person she is. Instead of pointing the negatives out, I concentrate on the good things about her and together we do the girlie stuff...hair, nails, skin care and dieting. I don't expect anything from her I couldn't deliver myself.
      And yes, we will have our girlie movie nights and have the ice cream sundaes and popcorn from time to time.
      My dear...your body is yours. Junk food is not healthy, but there are times we can enjoy a day of slacking just for the fun of it.
      Mom needs to be a whole lot less selfish, stop comparing you with your dad's girlfriend, and find out what real love for her daughter means.
      Why is it that parents don't realize that their kids are not to blame for their mistakes.
      Kids were born to be loved and to be cherished. Life is difficult enough for them than to add unneccessary pressure.
      Your Mom needs to be more motivating and encouraging and loving toward you.
      My dear...You are beautiful.

  33. QUESTION:
    What is the best cardio workout DVD for women?
    I am hoping to start a home fitness program this summer, and my main issue is losing overall body fat. My big trouble zones are the belly and chest, but I think overall body fat loss is my goal. So I'd like to incorporate mostly cardio, perhaps with some ab emphasis. I am 5'8", 155, if that makes a difference, and not terribly experienced with exercise routines, but I'd like to start making it a regular part of my day. I would have perhaps 45 minutes to an hour per day to devote to this, although I'm not sure if I should be doing it every day. I'd like to eventually get back down to about 130, where I was in high school, although I'm aware that might take a while. College life has not been kind to my body!

    I have considered a gym membership or just working out on my own, but the sad truth is that I know what motivates me, and having that DVD case staring at me every time I go to watch TV should do the job! Does anyone have any particular DVDs to recommend, or any other specific tips for me in getting started?

    • ANSWER:
      I use Davina McCalls High Energy 5 DVD and it's great. Alot of people like the Billy Blanks DVDs and swear by them and I know someone who swears by Jillian Michaels 30 Day shred

  35. QUESTION:
    Can you help me lose weight before summer? Willing to try anything but weight loss pills! HELP PLEASE!?
    I'm 16 years old and I'm starting to gain the average woman fat. I started gaining weight around the inside and outside of my thighs (not the front or back) and my lower belly. I also have started to get a so called "muffin top". I don't have alot but I don't want it to get so bad that I can't get rid of it. I'm gaining the weight so fast that I've got the beginning of stretch marks on my legs.

    I don't have much time to exercise, but I do have some. I don't want to take any pills for weight loss or anything but I'm not opposed to taking vitamins or anything like that. I just need someone (intellegent) to tell me how I can lose this fat before summer and I would like to go down two sizes. When I get out of school I have more time, so anything will help! PLEASE tell me some things I could do to get my fat down. I took dance until i was 15 so I have a lot of muscle that makes me seem like I have alot of weight, and I'll never be a 1-3 because of the muscle.

    thank you ahead of time for all of your answers and please don't waste my time with useless answers... thank you all and I will pick a best answer!

    • ANSWER:
      i know this sounds silly but if you have a wii console, the wii fit plus is definitely worth buying. I lost a stone and a half by using that daily and going to my local slimming world (i live in the uk)

      i also went running quite often and that really helps improve fitness so you can do more exercise each time. If you want your stomach more toned then sit ups and jack knifes really help.

      Also make sure you have a balanced diet, so 3 meals a day and maybe one or two snacks. Try and get your 5-a-day and don't eat after 7pm.

      If you have a high calorie intake in the morning you are likely to burn it off in the daytime, but if you have a high calorie intake in the evening, you on't burn any of it off as you will be sleeping so it will turn into fat.

      Hope i helped and good luck!

  36. QUESTION:
    How to help my obese friend?
    My best friend, who I love to death, has gained a ton of weight over the last six months. At first I though she might be pregnant but she's just been eating a ton of food lately for some reason. She's 5 ft and has confessed to me that she weights 121 pounds. She looks horrible, I can see the fat pugs on her body and some people are our job are starting to make cruel jokes about it.. She used to be on the thin side, maybe weighted around 95 pounds. I'm getting worried about her health and appearance. I don't want to be mean but sooner or later she is going to find out about the jokes people are telling behind her back. She has low self-esteem and I worry about how she will take the gossip. Also we work in the fashion industry and image is everything. I could see her getting fired by our designer, he doesn't like fat women.

    What can I do to help her lose the weight fast, she needs to lose about 20 pounds and fast. What would be a good weight for her to aim to, she used to be around 95 but I weigh that much and I'm 5'3, so I'm thinking maybe 90 pounds would be a good goal. She looked really nice at 95 pounds but I'm thinking she might look even better if she was skinnier. How many calories would she have to cut back to lose twenty pounds in a month? What type of exercises would she have to do and for how long each day. Exercises that cause weight loss but don't create bulk or heavy muscle mass would be best. Any pills recommendations to speed up her loss. I'm pretty sure she qualifies obese right now, I think it's 30 pounds overweight? Unfortunately at her current weight she is over the 30 pound limit.

    You see I'm kind of normal on the top of my body but once you get to my hips and lower I'm really fat, my legs seem to be as fat as a 150kg women's and I'm only 15years old. My mom says I'm seriously fat, then how do i loose that weight? Please tell me?

    • ANSWER:
      detox is the best way to loose excess fat from ur body for ever
      These new habits help you keep the bloat off and lose more weight.
      It’s well known that today’s secret of most men and women for successful weight loss and maintenance is the Medifast
      weight loss program.The first and best way to burn fat is to modify your current diet. There are three simple ways
      you can begin to modify: reduce calories, reduce sodium, and reduce fat. For example, by substituting a glass of
      water for a carbonated beverage, you can cut approximately 150 calories or more, depending on how much is consumed.
      Even if it were fruit juice instead of water, you would still reduce calories by approximately 50 - 100..
      what causes these unwanted gains in weight and bodyfat? There are three possible reasons this can happen:
      (1) Eat late at night (2) Exceed your normal caloric intake (3) Lack of exercise or physical activity.
      best way to speed up the metabolism is by increasing meal frequency. Instead of eating 2 - 3
      meals per day, try eating 4 - 5 small meals per day, or 3 meals and 2 healthy snack meals.

  38. QUESTION:
    Why do fat chicks blame everything except themselves for their weight issues?
    Ask a guy why he's fat and most times he'll tell you it's because he's lazy, he eats too much or doesn't exercise enough.

    As a woman though and aside from getting no sex for a month you'll hear excuses ranging from thyroid conditions (which are treatable, so if she had it diagnosed she wouldn't be fat), birth control, being "too busy", or other miscellaneous "hormonal" conditions.

    Weight gain or loss is determined solely by the difference between energy intake and expenditure.

    While some of the things like use as excuses may make you feel less like hitting the gym, its still a choice in the end. Go to the gym or don't. Eat or don't.

    Why do women have such a problem taking responsibility for their choices?

    • ANSWER:
      Because sometimes hormone issues can contribute to weight gain. Until the hormonal issues are corrected it can be very very difficult to lose weight.

      Here is how it works in cases where thyroid hormone is low.

      The thyroid gland releases hormones that regulate the body's metabolism. This helps the body utilize fats, proteins and sugars efficiently and doing so keeps the body at a normal weight.

      If the metabolism is slow, due to low thyroid hormone levels, more fats and sugar will be stored in the tissues from the foods you eat rather than efficiently used for energy. When this happens people gain weight.

      Also TSH levels influence the hormone leptin. Leptin helps in breaking down and eliminating fat.

      http://thyroid.about.com/od/loseweightsuccessfully/a/weight-loss-diet.htm

      FROM THE LINK: Kent Holtorf, MD: The hormone leptin has been found to be a major regulator of body weight and metabolism. Leptin is secreted by fat cells and the levels of leptin increase with the accumulation of fat. The increased leptin secretion that occurs with increased weight normally feeds-back to the hypothalamus as a signal that there are adequate energy (fat) stores. This stimulates the body to burn fat rather than continue to store excess fat, and stimulates thyroid releasing hormone (TRH) to increase thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and thyroid production.

      The mechanisms that are activated include diminished TSH secretion, a suppressed T4 to T3 conversion, an increase in reverse T3, an increase in appetite, an increase in insulin resistance and an inhibition of lipolysis (fat breakdown).

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thyroid

      FROM THE LINK: The thyroid gland participates in these processes by producing thyroid hormones, the principal ones being triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). These hormones regulate the rate of metabolism and affect the growth and rate of function of many other systems in the body. T3 and T4 are synthesized utilizing both iodine and tyrosine. The thyroid gland also produces calcitonin, which plays a role in calcium homeostasis.

      Also brain chemistry associated with hunger signals is affected by a slowed metabolism;

      Changes in Brain Chemistry

      Hunger is intricately tied to your brain chemistry. According to Dr. Aronne, your hypothalamus senses you need energy, and issues the brain neurotransmitter neuropeptide Y (NPY) with the message "eat carbohydrates." The surge of NPY is what you experience as "hunger," Once the hypothalamus senses you've eaten enough carbohydrates, it releases serotonin to tell the body, "enough carbohydrates."

      But this system can be dramatically altered by several factors, all of which can be present in chronic thyroid disease:

      http://thyroid.about.com/cs/dietweightloss/a/losingweight.htm

      FROM THE LINK: * Your metabolism is too slow for the appetite level set by your brain. Thyroid disease slows down the metabolism. What your brain perceives as appropriate food intake levels can then exceed your body's metabolism, creating weight gain.

      http://www.nytimes.com/ref/health/healthguide/esn-hypothyroidism-questions.html

      FROM THE LINK: What are the dangers if I don’t get treated for my underactive thyroid?

      Thyroid hormone is an important driver of the body’s metabolism, so without an adequate supply, patients can experience a slowdown in physical and mental functioning, as reflected by the many symptoms. More worrisome, the endocrine disorder can foster an increase in blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and raise the odds of heart disease and congestive heart failure. For would-be mothers, treatment of thyroid deficiency is crucial for a healthy pregnancy and baby.

  39. QUESTION:
    Showing baby bump earlier due to prior weight loss?
    I have always been heavy. I went from 260 down to 160 and held it there for about 18 months before becoming pregnant and I had a lot if extra skin. I'm wondering if my lower, firmer feeling pot belly is a baby bump or me just getting fat again from less exercise. I am 11 wks and I feel and look like I'm pregnant.

    I've heard that women with prior pregnancies show earlier because of all the stretching that has already been done. Does anyone know, medically or from experience, if prior dramatic weight loss can also contribute to earlier showing?

  40. QUESTION:
    weight loss for a healthy and athletic person?
    I'm woman, 18 years , athletic, i exercise daily including a 3 mile run 5 days a week, i eat normally and relatively healthy. I'm not even close to obese, but i don't have nearly the athletic build i want or that one would expect. I'm 150 lbs and 5'2'', grant it that a huge majority of that is muscle which is more dense and i know weighs more, but i still struggle to get the body i want. there isn't a hereditary issue either, so I don't understand! i would really like to loose about 10 or 15 lbs of fat but no matter how regular i make my diet or exercise, i never loose it. what am i missing in all of this?? how do women best loose fat?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      I graduated high school at 240 pounds and at 5 foot 3 that made me about as round as I was tall. I was one of those overweight teenagers who ate anything and everything without any regard to the effects it was having on my own body. Therefore, I began the diet pills, which did not work; I ate the special diet foods and even began drinking diet beverages. None of this stuff worked for me, just as it does not work for millions of overweight people. Eating less did not work and I was not one to work out or even get up and do anything remotely related to exercise. I knew I would look silly and it would hurt. I never thought or really cared about the health effects this would have on me, back then.

      A year ago after a successful weight loss plan, now at 120 pounds, it is a major difference. I've lost 30 pounds in the first month. The most significant change in my life is the amount of energy I now have and the way my clothes fit loosely. Everyone close to me and people I haven’t seen in a while are amazed and tell me that I look really good. This is a life changing experience for me although at first I was skeptical about the weight loss plan.

      Without getting too technical, there is a hormone produced by your thyroid gland called 'Thyroxine' that raises the metabolic rate of almost all the cells in your body. The weight loss program has proven to be effective in the short and long-term, without need to endure starvation and without any daily athletic workout. (But taking a light exercise every few days is highly recommended). Best of all you can eat what you most enjoyed without gaining any weight The weight loss program is affordable by all and do not need to pay a monthly fees to use it. In contrast to diet pills regime where you need to buy it on a regular basis and you will gain more weight when you stop taking it.

      The success has inspired me to help others and you could contact me at myweightsuccess@gmail.com if you need more details.

  41. QUESTION:
    Which Turbulence Training Workout should I use to get a hollywood look and NOT a bulky weightlifter body?
    I need the specific order. For example,
    1. Original "Turbulence training for fat loss"
    2. TT bodyweight 500
    3. TT bodyweight 1000
    4. Bodyweight TT 6-Month Manual
    5. Mission Abs
    etc, etc

    I found the following on the site FAQs but it just gives a basic order
    http://www.turbulencetraining.com/faqs.shtml

    Q: Which Turbulence Training Workout should I use?

    Answer:
    With Turbulence Training for Fat Loss, there are a lot of workouts
    to choose from.

    So why did I create so many fat burning programs?

    Because you need to have variety in your workouts to keep on
    boosting your metabolism, and burning fat month after month.

    If you did the same workout program for 3 months straight, your
    results would screech to a halt after 5 or 6 weeks.

    With the Turbulence Training fat loss program, you will be able to
    change your workouts every 4 weeks. Each time you do that, you'll
    kickstart your fat burning and your metabolism to a new level.

    You must change your workout every 3-4 weeks.

    Unfortunately, with so many Turbulence Training workouts, people
    often ask, "Which program should I start with?". So here are the
    fat burning guidelines you need to get the most out of
    Turbulence Training no matter what your fitness level...

    1) The Best Program for a Total BEGINNER

    Overweight, sedentary beginners should start with the Introductory
    Program in the main Turbulence Training for Fat Loss manual.

    If you haven't been doing any exercise, you must start there. No
    exceptions.

    The bodyweight exercises will prepare your muscles for all future
    workouts, and will prevent the overuse injuries people usually get
    when they start a high-volume cardio program (which is the worst
    thing an overweight person can do for weight loss).

    2) The Best Program for an Experienced Lifter Who Has NOT Exercised
    in the Last 4 Weeks

    Please start with the Intermediate Workout from the main Turbulence
    Training for Fat Loss program.

    BUT NOTE: Do only ONE SET per exercise in each workout in the
    first week.

    This will prevent you from being excessively sore from the
    exercises, which can occur when you have been away from exercise
    for so long.

    3) The Best Program For ADVANCED Fitness & Fat Loss

    I suggest you start with the "Original Turbulence Training
    Workout" from the main Turbulence Training for Fat Loss manual.

    Work your way through each following three advanced workouts in the
    manual.

    Upon completion of the Turbulence Training for Fat Loss workouts
    from the main manual, you can move onto the bonus workouts in this
    order:

    A) If you are a women that wants to put the final touches on
    a female physique, use the Turbulence Training for Women
    workout.

    B) If you are a man that wants to build muscle, use the TT
    for Muscle program.

    C) If you want to keep burning fat, move to the DB-BW Fusion
    Workout.

    D) Follow that with the 30-Day Advanced Fat Loss program.

    E) And finally, finish with the Advanced Fusion Fat Loss
    4-Week Program.

    At any time you are traveling or want a break from the dumbell
    workouts, you can use the beginner, intermediate, or advanced
    bodyweight program from the Original Bodyweight 4-Week TT workout.

  42. QUESTION:
    Should I try Alli weight loss pill?
    I was looking at Alli weight loss pills in the chemists today but I am no sure if I should go for them. The seem to block the absorption of fat from your diet rather than break up the fat you have in your body. I am about 70lbs overweight but I don't eat a high fat diet most of my weight gain came after a car accident injury prevented me from exercising for a couple of years and over eating high sugar and high carb foods. I am very anemic and so am always needing a sugar hit to get through the day. I am vegetarian so most of my meals are low fat it's just the snacking that is really bad with me.
    Also I am worried that Alli will stop me absorbing healthy fats and fat soluble vitamins. Studies show that women on very low fat diets have skin that ages faster not something I want as losing 70lbs creates a risk of loose skin and eating a very low fat diet while losing weight may contribute to this.

    Still I would like a little help so maybe this alli is worth a try or if anyone can suggest a product that can help with low energy / sugar cravings and appetite control?

    Would be great to know what you thing.
    Gary B

    Your comment is very rude, I agree that eating too much sugar is a bad habit but the link between anemia and obesity does exist. I have been seeing endocrinologist who told me this. It is very common for those with chronic anemia to self medicate with sugar or other stimulents. It's not correct behaviour and I'm not excusing myself but it is a factor.

    It is a shame as your advice otherwise is good. Too bad you spoiled it with your self righteous attitude.
    My anemia is due to a hormonal imbalance which cause me to lose far too much blood during my periods. This is an ongoing issue for me and I have been hospitalised due to it several times.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi I have a similar problem I am also anemic and vegetarian (seems to come with the territory!) I have only just started using Alli so its to early for me to say, but I suggest you do some reading up on Alli, and if you decide to go ahead and buy some, give it a week then evaluate how your body is responding to taking it. You can find a review of Alli here - http://www.natural-appetite-suppressant.co.uk/alli-diet-pill-review.html

  44. QUESTION:
    is this true?
    Q: If I do strength training for my chest muscles, will I lose breast size? I want to be toned but definitely do not want smaller breasts.

    A: No, developing your pecs won't make your breasts smaller. In fact, says Detroit trainer Neil Maki, a spokesman for the American Council on Exercise, doing quality chest exercises will tone the muscle underneath the breast tissue, so your chest may appear to be bigger."

    In female bodybuilders, steroid use can cause the breasts to shrink And the combination of extremely well-developed chest muscles and very low body fat can make a woman's chest appear less rounded, more flat and sculpted. But in the typical woman, strength training has an overall toning effect. If, however, you lose significant body fat, you may reduce breast size, but the decrease will be proportionate to fat loss from the entire body.

    is the answer given right?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes. The only way to "shrink" breasts is to use steroids. Strength training will not shrink your breasts and yes, toning your pectorals will make your breasts appear slightly larger.

  45. QUESTION:
    Experienced female weightlifters only?
    I have been lifting weights for two years and want some advice from seasoned female weightlifters. I've always had a medium/large frame and been strong. I lift weights for the health benefits of stress relief, stronger bones and muscles and just to feel great.

    I enjoy feeling strong and seeing a change in my body when I'm lifting. But I also am doing cardio and would like to lose 30-40 pounds (I'm 190 and 5'7), but my body fat percentage is 21%. Ideally weighing about 150 would be great for my frame.

    Compared to the other women in the gym, I'm doing a good amount of weight (150 lbs on leg press, 80 lbs on pull downs and rows, 25 lb each hand w/dumbbell press...) I want to build muscle and increase metabolism, but lose weight.

    Am I doing to much weight?
    I do about 4 sets of 15-20 reps each, 3 x a week, bench/dumbbell press, legs- press, and back exercises.

    Any tips on effective cardio that will cause fat loss?

    I want to be strong, trim and feminine.

    • ANSWER:
      Try jogging a couple miles. I jog 5 miles every week and it helps keep you in shape, and lose fat.

      Also try bike riding. Its fun, entertaining, and you can seriously build up muscle in your legs.

I'm eating between 1200-1400 calories a day, complex carbs, lean proteins, fruits, veggies, good fats and plenty of water. My exercise is all zumba and housework.

It doesn't have to be thing that make weight drop extra fast cause I'm in no hurry to loss all that I need to, cause I just want to get healthy and happy me.

    • ANSWER:
      I currently am doing p90x! I'm on week..6. I'm losing inches from all over, but no weight. I'm actually happy with that. Inches are far more important than weight. Anyway, I probably lost around...5-7 inches. I'm eating healthy too. Another helpful info for you, to find out how many calories you should eat:

      your weight x 10 = __________ (your answer)
      (your answer) x 20% = ____________(your answer)
      then ADD 600
      so, add (your answer 1) + (your answer 2) + 600 = _________ = (your TOTAL calorie intake per day)

      I think cardio works best for you. You can't lose weight focusing on one thing, but the whole thing. So, if you do a lot of cardio, it'll work,

  47. QUESTION:
    Weight loss conundrum?
    I know there are a lot of weight training vs. cardio questions here already, but I'm hoping to get some insight on my 'case'.

    I'm 5'3 and grossly overweight. I weigh 73 kgs right now, and my target is 55 kgs by the end of 6-7 months. I'm 23, so I'm hoping I'll be able to achieve my target more efficiently than older people who find it difficult to lose weight.

    I joined the gym about 2 weeks ago and the exercise has been a blessing. It makes me feel so much better and has even curbed my depression greatly, but I've not lost any weight whatsoever yet, and that's such a downer. I'm stuck at 73 kgs (even reached 74 kilos in the middle) in spite of working out 6 days a week, with my routine being weight training and cardio every alternate day.

    In short, I do 3 days each of cardio and weight training in a week. I don't eat unhealthy stuff; my diet is restricted to approx. 1200 calories a day, most of which comes in the form of lightly cooked and raw veggies, fruits, and protein in the form of lots of 'dal' (pulses). I also eat fish once in a while and have stuff like muesli and multi-grain crackers for breakfast. My food is cooked in healthy, but minimal vegetable oils like rice bran oil- I consulted a dietician, and she says my diet is not a problem.

    Even my trainer believe I should have lost *some* weight by now. I've asked both him and the dietician why I'm not losing weight, but they're pretty much at a loss for words too. For the record, I have no thyroid disorder or any condition that makes weight loss difficult.

    However, I suspect I've been building muscle at a far quicker rate than I've been burning fat. I'm not against weight training at all- in fact I love it more than cardio, but I hate it when I don't see any tangible difference on the weighing scale. Should I try to burn fat first and then tone up, or stick with my current 3/3 regime?

    Any advice on boosting my weight loss process would help. I want to be a toned 55 kg woman rather than a toned 70 kg woman with less fat.
    Thanks for the replies so far. It's ties in with pretty much what I'd believed, i.e. I'm building muscle faster than I'm burning fat. I'm hoping this lame plateau stage will stop because I'm more keen on reducing weight first and then toning up rather than becoming toned right away and burning fat all too slowly.

    • ANSWER:
      Its possible you're gaining muscle faster than burning fat, in fact, that will almost always happen when starting a new workout regime after not having done much before. Depending on the weight lifting exercises, you may want to tone down on the weights, be it less often or lighter weights and focus more on the cardio. All in all though, you need to have muscle to burn fat. The more muscle you have, the more fat is burned off. So, cutting strictly to a cardio workout, may not help as much as it sounds.

  48. QUESTION:
    am i too fat wanting to be thin?
    I hate feeling fat and I weigh 145 pounds and 5'2" with medium frame and I really want to weigh 90-95 pounds being a size 0-2. I would like to be really skinny so I would not worry about my body. It is like I feel like being pressured to be thin. I was teased at school because of my weight and decided to be anorexic and bulimic. My ex boyfriend told me if I did not lose any weight I am leaving you for good which he did. I have no motivation and too lazy to exercise and I tried to lose weight nothing works. I wish I could be thin like Nicole Richie I know that is never going to happen. I would love to be petite like Snooki and Kourtney they are smaller than I am and that is how I should be. God, I feel like I am morbidly obese compare to Hollywood female stars and skinny women around me. I hate my fat body wishing that I become anorexic and bulimic. I have such low self-esteem because of my weight and wanting to be anorexic I feel ugly because of my weight. What is the best weight for me? Any advice. No mean and disrespectful comments. I feel like I should be thin to be in a certain way.

    The first is my picture and these other two is what I have to look like in order to be thin.

    • ANSWER:
      I think instead of losing weight, you should focus on losing your attitude toward yourself and anyone in your life who calls you fat. You do not deserve to be miserable. You deserve to be happy surrounded by people who love because of you and not that you don't have a hollywood body. You also need to stop beating yourself up. These kind of feelings are self destructive and lead to eating disorders. What you should focus on is your best friend in the whole world; your heart. You should be thinking about what you can do to make life better for you and your heart. That means you eat better and exercise. You need to eat 6 healthy meals a day and eat lots of fruits and veggies along with whole wheats, lean proteins, and low fat dairy. Then you need to exercise and don't think of it as a chore. Find something you enjoy doing and could do for years. For example, I like hiking because I like being outside with nature to entertain me. So find something you enjoy and just do it. But finally, be a little selfish. This is all about you and not about looking like someone else or doing this for someone else. Do this for you and your heart will thank you.

  49. QUESTION:
    Sleep habits linked to fat gain in younger adults is this true or fake?
    i am 14! this wouldn't happen to me if i am only 14 would it? and i am a white person just so you know
    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Younger adults who get either little sleep or a lot of it may see a greater expansion in their waistlines over time, a study published Monday suggests.

    Researchers found that among black and Hispanic adults younger than 40, those who typically slept for five hours or less each night had a greater accumulation of belly fat over the next five years, versus those who averaged six or seven hours.

    Those who logged eight hours or more in bed each night also showed a bigger fat gain -- but it was less substantial than that seen in "short sleepers."

    The study, reported in the journal Sleep, does not prove that too little or too much sleep directly leads to excess fat gain. But the findings support and extend those of other studies linking sleep duration -- particularly a lack of sleep -- to weight gain and even to higher risks of diabetes and heart disease.

    The study adds to past research in part because it focused on black and Hispanic Americans -- two understudied groups who are at increased risk of obesity and its related ills, said lead researcher Dr. Kristen G. Hairston, of Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

    It also zeroed in on the relationship between sleep and gains in abdominal fat -- both the superficial fat layers just below the skin and the "visceral" fat that surrounds the abdominal organs. Deep abdominal fat is believed to be particularly important in the risks of health conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease, Hairston told Reuters Health.

    The study included 332 African-American and 775 Hispanic-American men and women ages 18 to 81. At the outset, all reported on their sleep habits, diets, exercise levels and other lifestyle factors. The researchers used CT scans to measure participants' abdominal fat, at the start of the study and again five years later.

    Among participants younger than 40, the study found, those who said they slept for five hours or less each night gained more belly fat than those who averaged six or seven hours of sleep.

    On average, short sleepers showed a 32 percent gain in visceral fat, versus a 13 percent gain among those who slept six or seven hours per night, and a 22 percent increase among men and women who got at least eight hours of sleep each night.

    A similar pattern was seen with superficial abdominal fat. Even when the researchers considered factors like calorie intake, exercise habits, education and smoking, sleep duration itself remained linked to abdominal-fat gain.

    The findings, according to Hairston, support the belief that sleep habits affect weight, and health in general. "Sleep is an important part of your overall health -- not just in whether you're tired during the day," she said.

    Individuals vary in their sleep needs, so there is no one set prescription. But "extremes of sleep," such as less than five hours per night, should raise concerns, according to Hairston. "And if you're concerned about your sleep," she said, "discuss it with your healthcare provider, just as you would discuss diet or exercise."

    As for why sleep duration might affect abdominal-fat gain, there are several theories.

    There may be indirect effects; people who get too little sleep may be too tired during the day to exercise, while those who spend a lot of time in bed may spend less time being active, relative to people who sleep fewer hours.

    Research also suggests that sleep loss alters people's levels of appetite-regulating hormones -- which could, in theory, spur them to overeat.

    Depression, which often affects people's sleep and has been linked to weight gain, could also be a factor, Hairston noted. She and her colleagues had no information on study participants' depression symptoms.

Fat Loss For Idiots

Written By: admin - Aug• 03•12

There is a point in your life where you need to solve your weight problem. The excess poundage is caused by the build-up of fat in your body over the years. Logic dictates that in order to get rid of the extra weight, you need to eliminate the fat. There are a bazillion programs that claim they have the solution for weight loss, but nothing seems to work. Since there are so many diet programs to choose from, it's easy to lose focus of the real cause of the problem. The Top Secret Fat Loss Secret sets itself apart from other programs because it focuses on the very cause of the weight problem, which is the accumulation of toxic materials in the body. You may be aware that trashy food is bad for your health but you still eat them on a daily basis. It's not easy to picture your insides with all the toxic build-up without grossing you out. But the truth is that you have been abusing your body with all processed foods you have been eating for as long as you started eating solid food.

The Top Secret Fat Loss Secret by Dr. Suzanne Gudakunst is a program that offers a different approach to losing the unwanted fat. It zeroes in on the main reason why no matter how hard you workout, you can't seem to lose weight. Believe it or not, the secret lies within you - literally! Based on research revealed in the Top Secret Fat Loss Secret, there are organisms that breed inside your body that can cause you to be bloated and gain a lot of weight. They are parasites that have made your stomachs, intestines, and colon as breeding grounds. They don't only make you gain weight, they also make you sick. It's quite shocking that the main culprit is that little bugger living our stomachs. This is like unknowingly poisoning yourself throughout the years. It's not a pretty picture but take comfort in the fact that there is a solution. The Top Secret Fat Loss Secret will tell you what no doctor or health expert will dare admit. Health products and fat loss drugs and supplements won't give you the same results because they are not designed to flush out the toxins in your body. The key here is to get rid of the plaque, the parasites, and worms that have been comfortably living inside your body, making it more difficult for you to lose weight. While it's true that some toxins in the body are naturally flushed out when you move your bowel, there are still filthy critters that remain stuck inside you. It sounds a little disgusting, but you need to face the fact that parasites and plaque are the reasons why you are accumulating excess fat.

Now that you know the Top Secret Fat Loss Secret, you must begin your journey to having a healthy, lean, and sexy body. Flushing out all the unwanted little critters in the body will make your body lose the fat and keep it that way forever. Of course, you should also start changing your eating habits by cutting down on trashy food and embracing healthier food.

    • ANSWER:
      hi :) am not sure whats available in the markets...but, this is what i did to lose weight... PLEASE DONT TAKE PILLS... pills are nothing but anorectic agents... they make you feel less hungry... there is no way to loose weight fast... though , sauna , steam and massages help slightly... it has to be combined with diet and excercise... pills are very bad in the long run... can lead to impotency and infertility...

      i lost 10 kgs in about 5 months time... i am getting married in august and i desperately needed to loose weight... i was 65 kilos when i started... according to my BMI , i was 10kgs + overweight... i stand 5'2.odd and 65 kilos is grossly overweight...

      just dieting wont help like i found out in my case... diet + exercise will do the trick...

      i'll tell you what i did... it worked for me... hope it works for you too :)

      the trick is not to starve but to eat smart :) and stay healthy :)

      what you should cut down :
      oil , butter , cheese , margarine , mayonisse , sauces (depends , will get back to that a bit later), chips , crisps, nuts , chocolates , sugar , cola, fizz , areated drinks ,ice creams , chocolate , alcohol , cakes and everything else thats hi - cal... you'll need to avoid everything thats sweet , oily and sticky... if you are not sure about what foods to avoid... check the net...loads of info available...

      vegetables / meat to avoid :
      potatoes - very very important , beetroot (its a root and has concenterated sugar in it) , all kinds of roots basically except carrot... avoid lamb, mutton , pork , beef, and prawns... all these put on weight... eat only lean meats... thats fish and chicken.. avoid eating egg yolk... eat just the egg white...

      fruits to avoid :
      mangoes , bananas , jackfruit

      now that we had a look at what foodstuff is to be avoided...you might be wondering if there is anythig at all that you can eat... thats how i felt... there is loads of stuff you can eat actually :)

      here they come :)

      fast foods are a big no no... you can order salads and special lo cal foods that are avaailable in most outlets...

      its best to eat at home for the period you are dieting and trying to lose weight...after those few months... once you've shed your load...you can get back to your usual lifestyle... of course with some caution...

      my diet...
      breakfast:

      skimmed milk (use skimmmed milk , is low in fat , other typer of milk are higher in fat content) , fruit... i am from India... am not sure where you are from and hence you might not understand certain food types we consume here... but let me tell you something... Indian food is very very oily and very difficult to diet...

      and try cereal in the mornings... oats, weetabix... etc... have a good breakfast...alwaays use brown bread... whole wheat brown bread is very good for weight reduction...

      for lunch , we are staple rice eaters... rice is bad for fat reduction... but i still took rice because its a habit tht cant be changed... everyone takes rice here... so... rice - one cup - 100gms and lots of veggies cooked in less oil.. and absolutely no coconut and curry with less oil... all in all keep your oil intake to 2 tea spoons everyday... that would be just for seasoning... also using olive oil helps a lot...

      then for dinner... compulsarily have wheat... pasta is a good option...but make sure you buy wheat pasta... check before buying... and of course in pasta absolutely no sauces... some varities of sauces are acceptable... as far as they dont have cheese , butter , oil ,mayonisse and fattening substances in general... you can use tomato spicy sauces etc... make sure your sugar intake doesnt cross 2 - 3 spoons per day... (not tablespoons) and no butter and ghee of course... eat a lot of fruits and vegetables... and all kinds of cereal... if you are hungry... eat a fruit... or you can eat stuff like puffed wheat and puffed rice... but no puffed corn... corn products again put on weight...

      eat sandwiches as much as possible... i dont know which part of the world you are from and hence cant suggest much for you in terms of recepies...

      and combined with dieting... you need to excercise for atleast an hour everyday... you'll see the difference...defenitely... if you think gym is boring... take up dance classes... or run along the beach... if you have one... or skate... or just about any physical activity... brisk walking will also help...
      the key is to stay healthy while you diet and lose weight...

      drink loads of water...atleast 6 glasses per day... and do a lot of physical activity.... take the stairwy instead of the lift.... and small things like that...
      if you have any more queries...mail me... cheers :) and good luck :) its not difficult...you'll get used to it in a few days... and of course the results are fab:) who doesnt want a great looking body...

      you can get back to your normal lifestyle once you slim down... after that... its just eating what you like and burning it out the next day with just a little bit of excercise :) also check your weight everyday... its a great way to motivate and monitor your progres :)

      Source(s):

      personal exp :)

  7. QUESTION:
    My wife wants to try fat loss 4 idiots, Idiot proof diet. Anyone have any success with this diet program?
    My wife needs to lose about 30 pounds and actually I could lose a few pounds myself. I think she looks find the way she is, but she is determined to lose those extra pounds. She heard about a diet called fat loss for idiots on a diet review blog. http://www.squidoo.com/lose-pounds-fast/ The blog writer claims to have lost 60 pounds on the diet. The reviews on this site are kind of one-sided, so we would like to know.....

    If anyone has had good results following fat loss 4 idiots diet.?
    Is this diet really easy to follow and stick to it?
    Did you gain the weight back fast, after you stopped using the diet?

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm actually currently on this diet and have to say that I've never had success anywhere else. I've lost 7lb in the last 11 days and to be fair, I feel so much better.

      Even though the website might make it feel that it's just another diet that won't work, I do suggest you give it a try. Even though, I did buy the diet generator and handbook when it was a lot cheaper, it's worth the investment.

      Plus, the food you eat isn't exactly terrible, you get to eat the foods YOU like. Which is fantastic and exercise is pretty much optional. The main thing is that you eat 4 meals a day, and that's not too hard. After that, you get 3 days of eating whatever you want... which is bliss. So, I'm going to keep on with this diet regime.

      Anyway, it's really up to you, I found with the large amount I have to lose that the diet is doing wonders:)

  8. QUESTION:
    does fat loss for idiots really work?
    how does this work . anyone had real fast results? is it easy and effective?

    • ANSWER:
      I was really skeptical of this diet when I first heard about it. Someone I work with was doing it and I decided to give it a shot. I did it for a while and lost some weight but just kind of forgot about it.
      Two years later after having my son, I needed to lose a lot of weight. I started the fat loss for idiots on May 12. Today, Oct. 5, I have lost 50 lbs and I am still losing weight.
      Here is how it works. There is a list of foods that you can pick from. You pick a certain number from each column and the program automatically generates an 11 day menu for you. You eat four times a day with at least 2.5 hours between each mean. It really doesn't get any easier than this. You follow the diet for 11 days and then you take three days off and can eat whatever you want.
      If you follow it closely and exactly as the plan says, it will work. Sometimes the weight would come off fast than other times but it is still working for me after 5 months.
      I have read mixed reviews about it. Some people say that they don't like it because it is too strict and hard to follow. I completely disagree with that. You diet for 11 days and then there are 3 days when you can eat whatever you want. In the beginning, I longed for those 3 days. Now I have learned to make healthier choices on those three days. There is nothing more motivating than stepping on the scale every morning and seeing that I lose a pound.
      By the way, it isn't just water weight that I lost. There is no way that I was carrying 50 lbs of water weight. I am actually also on a managed weight loss program and part of that is a regular body fat check. I have already dropped body fat.
      In summary, to answer your questions:
      Yes I have had fast results. It is very easy (as long as you can fight the temptation to "cheat" because that will ruin a whole day of dieting. And yes, it is very effective.
      Good luck. I hope that you have as much luck as I have.

  18. QUESTION:
    ONLY those who have tried fat loss for idiots?
    so what were the results? did you lose the 9 lbs in 11 days or close? did you lose anything?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi!

      I have tried that program for 2 weeks, but it did nothing for me.
      :( I was really expecting to see changes, because I strictly followed the rules and the meals.

      But unfortunately, it didn't really work for me. I DID NOT lose any weight at all. -__-.

      However, I tried another way to lose weight... and it was tried and tested. Wahehehe.

      I jogged at least thrice a week, didn't eat rice at all (i'm asian, so rice was constant in my everyday meal before) and drank plenty of water/green tea (8-10 glasses a day). :D

      I have started with my jogging/no rice plan 5 months ago. ... i managed to take off 20 pounds since then. :)

      Hope this helps.

  20. QUESTION:
    Any comments on the Fat Loss 4 idiots diet?
    I had a baby a year ago and I can't seem to lose the weight. I've tried the South Beach Diet but it didn't really work for me. I heard about this one and was wondering if anyone tried it and what the results were. I'd love to hear from people who actually tried it, negative and positive feedback, so if you're just going to say "exercise and eat healthy" without having tried it, don't post.
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      PLEASE do not buy it, my friend tried it, and it is a SCAM. It is just like a cabbage soup diet.

      Okay, I'll try,

      First of all, no starving yourself. Or using laxatives or making yourself throw up.

      Drink at least 8 cups (64 oz) of water a day. That's 4 water bottles full.

      Eat 3 square meals a day, and have 2 small snacks. One between breakfast and lunch and the other between lunch and dinner. That way you won't be super hungry at meal time and pig out.

      Don't drink anything other than water and milk (preferably skim)... juice has a TON of added and natural sugars. Especially not soda/soft drinks/pop or whatever you call it.

      No junk food... (this means candy, chips, fried foods, popcorn, etc...)

      Give up sugary foods. Desserts, pretty much. And sweet cereals and things like that.

      And, of course, exercising is good too. Don't overdo it at first. If you're not active, start with about 30 minutes of aerobic cardio exercise.

      Some good ways to exercise are:

      Raquetball. Since you're running after a little ball, you don't really have to think about the fact that you're running, which can be really tiring. You just want to get to the ball. It's GREAT exercise. Plus, it's fun, even if you absolutely SUCK, like me.

      Running/ Jogging. Well, duh. great if you want to get rid of a stomach, and flabby legs.

      Swimming. Pretty much good all around. Plus, it doesn't tear at your muscles like running, so you probably won't be as sore the next day.

      Buy work-out videos. Yeah, okay. I know it sounds lame. But seriously, they work. And if you don't feel like making a total fool of yourself in front of a class, but still need ideas of what to do, they're great.

      Crunches. I'm not going to explain them. Hopefully you already know what they are.

      Pushups. Yes, I know most people think they're just for arm muscles, but they really aren't. If you do them, you'll notice your abs getting really tight. If they're too hard, try alternating, do one real pushup then one with your knees on the floor.

      Leg lifts- Pretty much what it sounds like. Lie flat on your back, then lift your legs back toward your stomach.

      Plies- Mostly work the leg muscles. Stand with your feet directly beneath your elbows and pretend to sit down. My old dance teacher made us do those until every single one of us was groaning. We all wanted to kill her, but, as a result, we had killer legs. Cheesy, right? I know. Forgive me. Bad habits are hard to kill.

      Levitation- Okay, not really. You sit upright, with your legs in front of you, then lean back like you're going to lie down, but never let your back actually touch the ground. Then sit upright again. Remember to breathe.

      Pull ups- Again, pretty much what it sounds like. Stand upright, (don't bend your back!) and pull your knee up as close to your stomach as you can. Pull your arms down as you lift your leg. Then alternate legs.

      Suicides- Pretty sure you already know what those are. Run from one spot to another, touch the ground and run back.

      Pretty much all I can think of at the moment. Hope I helped. Best of luck. : )

  21. QUESTION:
    Fat loss for idiots? does it work?
    Me and my friend want to try the fat loss for idiots program, but we'd like some feedback from people who have used it in the past before we try it. Does it work?

    • ANSWER:
      All diets work if you dont cheat, drink water, and exercise.

      it costs 39.99. The site is secure and they will never charge you again.

      With that they will give you a download on tips for eating healthy, working out, myths about certain foods, etc.

      The real diet is in the form of a website. I can give you the name of the website but you need to create a username and password to get in which they will give you with your purchase.

      Once you get in you choose 15-30 foods from a list they provide. The foods are mostly high in protein and low in carbs. Since you are picking foods you like the diet is very doable. You can use this site forever and re-create your diet as much as you like. I re-did mine 3 times because i didnt want to buy too many things that might go bad.
      Eggs, deli meat, nuts, and fish are some of the main ingredients i chose.
      It keeps the diet full of variety and you never get hungry because it instructs you to eat 4 times a day and just enough that you are satisfied but not full.
      That couples with exercise and lots of water will give you a 5-10lb loss every 11 days.
      After the 11 days you take a 3 day break and eat whatever you like. This tricks your body to think you eat foods like that all the time so it spikes your metabolism. But again its still eating 4 times a day just before your full.

      Good luck!

      PS: here is an example of my day 1 plan... very easy to follow in my opinion.

      Meal #1:

      For Meal #1 you may eat any combination of the below foods that you wish (you may eat all or just 1 of the below foods, it's up to you).

  23. QUESTION:
    Is fat loss for idiots a scam?
    Is the website fat loss for idiots a scam? you pay a certain amount of money and get a ediet handbook and a diet generator.

    • ANSWER:
      No, it is a wonderful program and not a scam at all. I have been on the program for months. My goal was to lose 70 lbs and I have lost 50 so far just using fat loss for idiots.
      It sounds like a scam because you have to pay for it BUT it is actually a good program. You only pay for it once. So, you the or (I can't remember) and you can log on as many times as you want to change menu. So, if you want to do this a couple of times a year to lose some extra weight for a big event, the cost doesn't seem so bad. I think it really depends on how much weight you want to lose.
      I can't speak for anyone else, only my own experience with the program but I can't say enough good things about this.

  24. QUESTION:
    Have you tried Fat Loss for Idiots?
    I know it works, but for those who have tried it, how did you keep the weight off when you were done? Or did you?

    • ANSWER:
      You know that is one of the few new(er) diets that I have seen long-term success with.

      I'll be upfront with you, I do diet reviews and have to research customer feedback and user reviews of diet related products and have to sift through tons of responses. This was one of the few that - first of all - had users responding after the first week of weight loss that almost every diet enjoys.

      But beyond that there were quite a few respondents who were actually pleased with their results after the initial "body shock" weight loss that most everyone has.

      Honestly, to me, the diet seems a bit of a pain to use personally. It requires shifting your menu every few days, so you have to keep up on your grocery shopping, however I cannot argue with results.

      I will not promote the site I work for here because I don't want to spam ( if you are interested you can check in the reference section of my post) but I do have to say I was a bit surprised that this diet came back with as many positive reviews as it did.

      Hope that helps in your decision making.

  27. QUESTION:
    fat loss 4 idiots: Looking for fat loss 4 idiots product review and honest opinion on fat loss 4 idiots method?
    fat loss 4 idiots product has been around quite sometime and I really wonder if you have put this fat loss 4 idiots diet into practice and see the result yourself?

    Kindly answer my concern regarding fat loss 4 idiots diet if you have really follow the method.

    Genuinely looking forward your answer on fat loss 4 idiots

    • ANSWER:
      fat loss 4 idiots is based on the main core of the problem: you are overweight not just because you eat a lot; but you need to eat the right kind of food, more than anything else. That is what the fat loss 4 idiots promises, you need to change your diet and eat the right foods at the right time.

      fat loss 4 idiots is actually a ten step program. First of all it suggests that the food should belong to one of the three main categories: Proteins, Carbs and Fat.

      The main goal is to manipulate the amount of calories you intake in every meal, as this is more important than the overall daily sum of calories.

      According to fat loss 4 idiots the right combinations of foods belonging to these three categories are the key to the success, which is actually a very healthy and realistic approach to the losing weight issue.

      Lean proteins, veggies and fruit, as well as whole foods such as eggs or cottage cheese – which are ideal suppliers of well sensed and necessary fat – are the ones that compound the Fat loss 4 idiots program.

      Every day you are supposed to eat 4 meals with 2,5 hours between them approximately. You are not supposed to measure and eat particular quantity, but the suggestion and secret is to eat as much as you want, short of feeling full.

      A good advice is to drink lots of water every day, but not more than 2 glasses per time. What is absolutely great is that after the 11 days of the program you get 3 free days, which means that you can eat normally without following the diet plan, but then you go back to your 11 days.

      You can read more on the advantage and disadvantage about fat loss 4 idiots in this blog, there are quite a few -ve and -ve comments in this fat loss 4 idiots product review.

  28. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet and had success? I'd be grateful for any info.?
    I've heard a bit about this diet but I'm not sure what to believe. Any advice would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      One of the nicer aspects of the Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet plan is the online menu generator. You plug in several of your favorite food choices and the menu generator gives you an 11 day meal plan with 4 meals a day.

      In addition, unlike many other popular diet programs, Fat Loss 4 Idiots does not require you to buy any special foods or the expensive pre-packaged foods. You are able to simply continue buying fresh foods at your grocery store as you normally do.

      So, what kind of meals will you be eating with the Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet Plan?

      Although everyone is different, here is just a quick sample of a few choices you'll have for a typical day.

      Meal 1: Banana milk shake or Oatmeal

      Meal 2: Tuna salad or fruit salad

      Meal 3: Fish Filet or a sandwich of your choice

      Meal 4: Cottage cheese or scrambled eggs meal

      At first glance this may not seem like a lot of food, but keep in mind that with Fat Loss 4 Idiots, you are not limited to portion sizes. Also, you are eating 4 meals per day and not the more typical 3 meals a day we are so accustomed to.

      One of the goals of this diet plans to become filled up when eating, but not being overly filled. Add in plenty of water and you will be surprised at how easy it is to get through the day. I think we all know what it's like to be on diet programs where you feel starved and struggle to just get through the day.

      Of course, most everyone can only take a few days or weeks of it and they quit. This is just one of the reasons Fat Loss 4 Idiots is different. You get to eat foods you enjoy and you get to eat enough that you're not walking away hungry.

      **Does Fat Loss 4 Idiots Work?**

      I can say that the people I've spoken too have mostly been very pleased with it. I've spoken to people who have lost 30 pounds and more on this diet in a relatively short time and were absolutely in love with it.

      It doesn't work for everyone (nothing does) but it works for most of the people I've spoken to and I believe that you should be no different.

      You can find out much more about this unique diet program here: http://www.fat-loss-4-morons.info

      Good luck!

    Have you tried it? - Did you lose weight?

    Only reply if you've actually been on the diet - please.

    I know exercise is what I need, and to eat healthily etc - but I want to know about this diet!!!!!

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      They have now found that calorie intake and amount of food you eat is a bigger culprit for obesity today and exercise is not going to help you lose weight. We need to exercise our bodies to burn fat, and calories and keep muscle but if you gorge yourself for dinner every night, exercise will not help you shed the pounds as much.

      I have never heard of this diet but it doesn't mean it can't work. The only problem with a diet is that you have to want to do it and you have to make it a lifestyle to continue it. Going on diets to lose a few pounds is ok but when you stop the diet are you gaining weight in between?

      Good luck with it if this is the one you choose.

  32. QUESTION:
    Hi can anybody tell me if there is a good diet out there.Is the web site fat loss for idiots a scam?

    • ANSWER:
      I can't tell you if that particular web site is a scam- I can't locate it. I can tell you most of the lose weight quick places and plans are. Unfortunately, there are just no simple quick and painless ways to remove weight. It's not a matter of a magic food, a magic combo of foods, or even eliminating classes of foods. The fact is, you have to reduce calorie intake to lose weight, and you will increase the demand for calories if you exercise as well. There are no forbidden foods, there are only foods you should not eat as much of, as often, as others. Any diet that restricts or eliminates popular foods from the diet will only set you up to fail, because you will not likely stick to it for long before you give in to a craving and overdo it. Then you will feel rotten and give up completely. When your body is having to come up with calories to make up for what you aren't eating, it naturally burns fat from the reserves. You don't need a pill for that, and in fact- the pills and potions, diets and promises that claim to do that just don't work. All they do is transfer your hard earned money to somebody else's bank account. If you need help getting started, see if you can see a registered dietician who can teach you the ins and outs of calorie reduction, and tailor a diet that will work for you. If you want to join a program that has proven sucess, stick with Weight Watchers. They aren't fadish, and there are no mandatory food packets or pills. Although they do have a line of meals you can buy in the shops, you don't have to. In fact, they make it a point to teach you how to use real food and cook real world meals. That way, the weight you do lose you can keep off. It's sensible, it's slow- but it works.

  33. QUESTION:
    what is fat loss 4 idiots?
    there is an e-book called fat loss for idiots. If anyone has it , how about sharing it with me. i have purchased e-books in the past and find they don't share much for the money. if you know the secrets or have the e-book to share please do.

    • ANSWER:
      If you need help to loose a few pounds, I recomend circut training and cardio exercises. This will help burn calories, the biggest issue peolpe have is to stay on a diet. Do not give in by any means and see results, myself coming back from a back injury, and a back surgey I went to eating things with out sugar, quit eating mayononise and Iwas some one that could't eat any type of sandwich with out mayonise. This is the best real advice I can say, it takes detication and with the first two or three weeks you should start seeing a difference provided both a good balanced diet. A good diet should consist of fresh fruit with every meal, banana's with dinner to help recover your body. Breakfast is where you can eat as much carbs and fruit as you want. make sure not to eat carbs after Breakfast. make sure to snack on nuts or celery or something small through out the day with some nutrional value, no a snickers won't work. Lunch should be some proteins, dairy if low in fat or no fat. Try to stay away from fats other then nuts, the reason is the fat in nuts is the type of fat that your body needs. Not all those fats you can't pronounce. Again something small like carrots as an afternoon snack. Dinner try not to eat later then 4 ours before you go to bed. As this time frame your body is most likely to just store and not burn what you ate. I recomend eating a salad with light dressing or try fruit to sweeten the salad, try not to use dressing if possible as this is where bad fat comes in. Nutrition is easily the biggest mistake people make. They don't like to eat right. The reson you want to eat through out the day is to speed up that motablism and you will see results quicker. Hope this helps, have fun, eat right and be happy.

  34. QUESTION:
    For people who have been on the fat loss for idiots diet only please!?
    I was just wondering how much weight you have lost and in about how much time did you do it.

    • ANSWER:
      Please do not try fad diets that rarely work in the long run and consider a healthy life style change.

      The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better:

      *1) Burn more calories then you're consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at http://www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/library/weight/calsburned.htm

      Get an online, desktop, or cell phone diet and fitness calculator. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities.

      Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight:
      Adults: http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.htm
      Teens/Children: http://www.kidshealth.org/kid/exercise/weight/bmi.html

      It is difficult and unhealthy to lose more than one or two pounds per week. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. If you eat 500 fewer calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. If you burn through exercise 500 more calories per day for a week you will lose one pound.

      Here are two articles on how to break through a weight loss plateau:
      http://www.webmd.com/content/article/86/99147.htm
      http://www.webmd.com/content/pages/18/102117.htm

      *2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement.

      Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water. Read this article for more information on high GL Carbs:

  37. QUESTION:
    anyone on the fat loss for idiots diet?
    i was just wondering if this diet works and what are some kinds of foods you can eat on it.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi!

      Reading about the Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet makes you wonder if they might not be on to something. The way the diet works is different than other fad diets that involve cutting out certain types of food like low carbohydrates, low fat or low calorie. Instead it uses calorie shifting foods that you would normally eat, increases the number of times you eat, and changes when you eat certain things for fast fat loss.

      What is Calorie Shifting?

      The way calorie shifting works involves tricking the fat hormones that are sent out by the brain. Every time you eat something, your brain sends out fat storing and fat burning hormones, depending on what the item is.

      The idea is to send more fat burning than fat storing hormones, so that the body does not hold onto the fat for later use. If you keep confusing the metabolism, you will see fast fat loss, as much as 9 pounds in 11 days, that is the first weightloss principle of Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet.

      How Does The Metabolism Control Weightloss?

      This scientific weight control fact about the metabolism and how it works stems from our ancestry as cavemen, when there were famine periods between hunts. The body would store and hold onto fat for survival. The metabolism has not evolved from this self-defense tactic and doesn't realize we can just run to the grocery store and get whatever we want.

      On restrictive diets, weightloss can plateau when the metabolism thinks it is experiencing a famine period, and it will only burn what is taken in. Even on some of the popular low carbohydrate diets, it is advised to eat pizza for two days when your weight plateaus to get the metabolism going.

      Why Do Some Weightloss Diets Leave You With No Energy?

      The only problem with many of these restrictive weightloss diets is the metabolism goes back to only burning what you take in and many people complain about being tired and worn down, when it is mainly the metabolism storing up the energy for later.

      By eating healthy, nutritious foods that are fat burning, the metabolism burns as much energy as you need. Many people on restrictive weightloss diets will regain the weight when they go back to eating normal foods.

      What Is The Best Diet For Weightloss?

      The best weight control diet allows you to eat the foods that you would normally eat, have in your refrigerator and cabinets. By timing when you eat certain foods, how many times a day you eat them, and balancing the types of food, your metabolism will burn what you take in and then some, because it knows you will be feeding it again shortly, instead of starving.

      Prepackaged fat loss products and frozen dinners are not something you can live on the rest of your live. You need to understand the basics of natural weight control, and Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet uses the fundamental principles of controlling the metabolism with calorie shifting normal foods you eat every day.

      Check my source, it might help. It's a diet that works. Good luck!

    what are the steps in fat loss for idiots.. ireally need it and what are really strong fat burning foods?
    i need help fast

    • ANSWER:
      You shouldn't concentrate so much on food, as exercise is by far the most important thing for losing weight/burning calories and fat. If you make it a point to run every day I guarantee you will lose weight. That being said, you do need to make changes to your diet, like eating less fatty greasy foods like grilled chicken, salads, fruit etc.

  42. QUESTION:
    fat loss for idiots review anyone?
    has anybody tried the diet that they sell called fat loss for idiots? I see good things said about it but im not sure if its just people trying to sell it more. thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Like you, I had trouble finding any honest reviews on this diet. Here's my honest evaluation: I am on day 11 of this diet. I have lost 8 lbs - from 145 - 137. I haven't done the whole "3 day off" part yet, but I expect that I'll gain some weight back after that. This diet supposedly works by "shifting calories" which means that you rotate the kinds of food you eat daily so your body's metabolism doesn't have time to adjust (on this diet it's either a protein day or a carb day - but not the kind of carbs you're probably used to). This is supposed to maximize your fat loss potential. What I've found: This is basically a whole food, low carb diet. The carbs that you can consume are simple carbs, like fruit and vegetables, but you do get the occasional oatmeal or bran. You will not eat bread, pasta, rice, processed food of any kind. A typical "meal" on this diet is something like "walnuts and sausage." Portion size is up to you, the only rule being, "you must eat until you're no longer hungry, but stop before you're full." This means that you will be eating more protein, fewer carbs and most likely smaller portions - because the meals are not very interesting or appetizing. If you can get past that though, it's really not so bad. The good things about this diet? Well, it's gotten me to be more aware of my carb intake...I have a history of type 2 diabetes in my family and an incredible sweet tooth. I didn't think I could live without candy, ice cream, pasta, beer, etc. Surprisingly, after a couple days on this diet, I found I didn't have those cravings. Now I crave fruit and nuts. Go figure. I did get some nasty headaches though. I think that this diet works on the same principle of the induction phase of the Atkins diet. You are denying your body its primary fuel (carbs) so your body relies on stored glycogen (which is stored with water, so you will pee a lot, and need to drink even more water to remain hydrated) and then fat cells for energy. Since your brain needs glucose and your muscles use glycogen, it's not a good idea to refrain from eating carbs completely. On this diet, you do get to consume carbs in moderate quantities, but not every day. Some days you may have mostly carbs, on others, hardly any. The bad news? You get to eat 4 "meals" a day! Sounds good right? Not to someone who eats 3 meals and 2-3 snacks per day. Plus the fact that you are never actually "full" and the restriction on carbs and processed foods means that you are going to consume far fewer calories than you're used to. For example, there was one day where you could only eat vegetables. Try eating anywhere near 1500 calories of vegetables. I dare you. Overall, this diet works, but probably only because of the calorie and carb restrictions, not "calorie shifting" like they claim. I will not do another "11 day cycle" on this diet. Instead, I will continue to be aware of my carb intake, and reduce my dependence on processed food. Hope this helps. Good luck!

  45. QUESTION:
    could someone please share the "Fat Loss 4 Idiots" diet??
    please post what you have done/eaten for the past few days while on the "fat Loss 4 Idiots" diet!?
    thankyou!

    • ANSWER:
      can:
      1. Exercise in short, intense bursts (interval training) for effective fat burning after exercise.
      2. Increase the amount of resistance/strength/weight training you do, to build more lean muscle. Muscle is ‘metabolically active’ and burns more calories than other body tissue even when you’re not moving.
      And of course, for best results:
      3. Chill on the amount of food you are eating.

      Technically:
      1. Our bodies are built to survive, so when you exercise for long periods of time (often and consistently) your body thinks it needs to hold on to fat for energy. Doing short (12-15 minute), intense exercise sessions builds strength and burns calories, but not fat, so it “feels safe” using fat stores for energy after exercise.
      2. Resistance training (using extra weight) helps build lean muscle mass (and strong bones), and muscle burns more calories than fat.
      3. If you are obsessing over things like fat grams and not eating a nutritious diet, your body will reserve energy (store fat) to survive.

      Realistically:
      1. Varying your exercise is the most effective and efficient way to stay lean and healthy. You must do some longer exercise to build cardiovascular endurance, burn lots of calories, and yes, even burn fat during exercise - your body will not click in to “save” mode unless you exercise for long periods of time, regularly and often.
      2. You must do resistance training in order to build muscle and strong bones.
      3. Nobody wants to exercise more - and we don’t want to train our bodies to need more exercise to stay fit. So exercise efficiently – two short, very intense (relative to your level of fitness) training sessions weekly, like a 15-minute fast run/walk or fast cycling sprint intervals, and two moderately long, moderately intense sessions (30-45 minutes) of strong walking, cycling, or yoga, with one long day (60-90 minutes) of a moderately paced walk/hike. That’s a great five-day/week training schedule.
      4. Instead of adding more days to your workout schedule, add a weighted vest to your training. I have said this before, but this is the most efficient way that I know of to build muscle while burning calories. For more information, go to http://www.walkvest.com/.
      5. Eat moderately - stop counting fat grams and calories and look at how much food is on your plate! And eat more nutritiously by eating foods that are natural and unprocessed.

    Has anyone Tried FAT LOSS FOR IDIOTS??
    I'M INTERESTED IN STARTING WIEGHT WATCHERS, AFTER DOING SOME RESEARCH..'FAT LOS FOR IDIOTS" SEEMS TO POP UP EVERYWHERE?! DOES ANYBODY KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT, OR IF YOU PREFER WEIGHT WATCHERS OR FAT LOSS

    • ANSWER:
      Fat Loss 4 Idiots really works. I know quite a few people who have lost weight on this diet and kept it off.

      It is very easy to follow. You don't have to count calories or points. All you have to do is choose your favorite foods from a list, and then the "diet generator" creates an 11 day menu for you. You follow the menu for 11 days and then you get 3 cheat days.

      This diet uses "calorie-shifting". You basically are shifting the calories you eat every couple of days. You have to eat the right fat burning foods at the right times and in the right cycles. But, you don't have to figure out the perfect menu.

      The "diet generator" does that. The foods are also healthy too. Things like chicken, fish, nuts, low fat dairy, fruits and vegetables, etc.

      http://www.fastfatlossdiet.com

  48. QUESTION:
    does fat loss for idiots actually work?

    • ANSWER:
      I've checked the site out and found out what they had to offer. The site does NOT promote low fat, low carb and low calorie diets.

      The problem with low fat diets is that the diet cuts out many of the healthy mono and polyunsaturated fats such as nuts, olive oil and avocados. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are beneficial in that they increase High Density Lipoproteins (HDL) and decrease Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) aswell as triglycerides. This helps your cardiovascular system.

      Low carb diets will make you feel miserable since the most immediate supply of energy is glucose which is broken down from carbs. The brains fuel is only glucose and thus a reduction in carbs leads to feeling sluggish.

      Low calorie diets don't work because they don't take into account the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), the BMR is the amount of calories your body needs just to stay alive. Suprisingly most of the calories you consume are for your BMR. For example, If you ate a 2000 calorie diet, 1500 calories are needed for BMR and all you have left is 500 calories which you can burn without resorting to heavy exercise.

      From the research I've done with other sites I believe that fatloss4idiots DOES work. But the most IMPORTANT step you have to do is to APPLY IT immediately. Reading about it does not help.

      Hope this helps :)

  49. QUESTION:
    Fat Loss For Idiots book?
    Is Fat Loss For Idiots a good program?
    And how much does it cost?

    • ANSWER:
      it costs 39.99. The site is secure and they will never charge you again.

      With that they will give you a download on tips for eating healthy, working out, myths about certain foods, etc.

      The real diet is in the form of a website. I can give you the name of the website but you need to create a username and password to get in which they will give you with your purchase.

      Once you get in you choose 15-30 foods from a list they provide. The foods are mostly high in protein and low in carbs. Since you are picking foods you like the diet is very doable. You can use this site forever and re-create your diet as much as you like. I re-did mine 3 times because i didnt want to buy too many things that might go bad.
      Eggs, deli meat, nuts, and fish are some of the main ingredients i chose.
      It keeps the diet full of variety and you never get hungry because it instructs you to eat 4 times a day and just enough that you are satisfied but not full.
      That couples with exercise and lots of water will give you a 5-10lb loss every 11 days.
      After the 11 days you take a 3 day break and eat whatever you like. This tricks your body to think you eat foods like that all the time so it spikes your metabolism. But again its still eating 4 times a day just before your full.

      Good luck!

Fat Loss Foods

Written By: admin - Aug• 03•12

Of all the weight loss program in the industry, why can Fat Burning Furnace be such a success?

Fat burning furnace is not a scam and it is the most popular weight loss programs on the internet, with thousands of user testimonials from around the world. The key to that question, I think, is that the creator, Rob Poulos, was a normal guy with weight issues of his own and tried various disappointing products before he devised his own experience into this effective program. Therefore, the guide is easy to understand and to follow, as it is clearly laid out step by step by someone who was once in your place.

Like other similar programs, Fat Burning Furnace focuses on nutrition and exercises. However, instead of giving you a strict diet plan to stick to, it simply provides you with a large number of alternatives to substitute your favorite food. Besides, it works for vegetarians too, since the diet is designed with a variety of choices. When it comes to workout, Rob Poulos is firmly against long-time exercise, and that is why
Fat burning furnace instruct you to do short yet intense exercise three times a week. More importantly, Fat burning furnace emphasizes the importance of Resting Metabolic Rate in a way that no program ever did. The main idea is to increase the amount of calories that your body burns while you are resting. Achieving high Resting Metabolic Rate is literally to realize slim and lean body shape effortlessly.

After all,
Fat burning furnace is no magic, nor is it the ideal choice for everyone. If what you are looking for is building huge muscle mass, if you are going to relay on the program to work by itself without commitment and determination, then Fat Burning Furnace is not the right plan for you.

    What are good foods for fat loss?
    I just turned 15 and I am in school a lot and I find it hard to actually eat healthy. What are some good foods and snacks that will help with fat loss?

    • ANSWER:
      You're a teenager and therefore growing. You need all the nutrients for your bones and muscles. Just eat small portions. Grapefruits is a good balance fruit.

  2. QUESTION:
    What are some good exercises for fat loss? also what foods to eat?
    I just started going on the elliptical at least 30 mins a day. I want to lose at least 15 pounds by April. Is the elliptical good for fat loss? What other workouts are good? Also is there any foods I should eat and avoid? Plus is it okay to workout 6-7 days a week?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi. In my opinion the best thing you can do is try to stick to as natural, whole products as possible. Stuff like vegetables, beans, whole-grains, fruit, nuts etc.

      For each meal make sure you have a portion of fruit or veg, one of protein and one of complex carbs. The combination of these food-groups will stop you getting too hungry. Add in a couple of healthy snacks like nuts and dried fruit and you have a perfectly balanced diet.

      Avoid ready meals, soda and junk food such as crisps, Special K (full of sugar!), chocolate or cakes.

      In terms of exercise, try to be active for at least an hour 4 days a week. I wouldn't recommend doing 6-7. It's actually better for your body to have a break

      Elliptical is a great choice. You can also do jogging, rowing or swimming.

      Good luck.

    What foods are good for fat loss and muscle development?
    I eat a diet primarily of raw fruits and vegetables and I work out 4-6 times a week. I know the raw foods aren't helping out my muscle development that much and was curious what some of the prime foods for this situation would be.

    • ANSWER:
      well fruits contain very important vitamins but if you get past a certain daily amount, it's just added sugar. i recommend 1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight for muscle-sparing. and space it out because even though your small intestine is 24 feet long, it still can only absorb so much at a time.

      Foods with high acidity (i.e. tomatoes, grapefruit, oranges, etc.)

      Undereating can make your metabolism slow down so that everything you eat will stick to you like glue, so that's not good, either. Best to just eat moderately. Limit your eating to twice a day, and no snacking in between.

  11. QUESTION:
    What are foods and natural supplements or vitamins that promote fat loss?
    Foods, natural supplements, vitamins..etc

    • ANSWER:
      L carnitine

  12. QUESTION:
    Key foods for fat loss?
    I eat healthy and exercise, but I am wanting to know some key foods (other than fruit and vegetables) which are great at helping me lose fat.

    I also get hungry very fast, no matter how much I eat, so what are some healthy snacks that I can have between meals.

    Also, any tips of how to stop food cravings, such as chewing gum would be much appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      In terms of diet, foods containing Protein will generally make you feel fuller, faster.

      Eat your meals slowly - the stomach is sometimes very slow to send the "I've had sufficient" message to the brain.

      Drink plenty of water - again the stomach sends messages to the brain which can indicate thirst, but the brain is trained to be hungry instead. Drink a cup of water when you feel hungry - if you still feel hungry after 15 minutes, have something low fat, low carb.

      Dietary fiber, wholemeal will help cleans your systems, get rid of waste that accumulates in your body and assist your stomach and gut to digest food - increase the fiber intake and you'll start to feel more energetic pretty soon.

      Good luck.

  14. QUESTION:
    Fat loss 4 idiots: foods u cant eat?
    ok heres the thing..
    can u eat what ever u want on fat loss 4 idiots as long as it adds up to the amount of calories u want to eat in each day?

    its not like i pig out on junk food..
    ive been making healthy choices, like veggie burgers, frozen yogert instead of ice cream, and homemade echiladas and bread, i dont eat any syrup on my pancakes...
    i usally excercise a lot! but im on vaccation right now and ill be back on sunday. so i havnt really got a chance to workout as much. i usally do a lot of ab workouts and a hour of cardio a day.
    so ive been doing fat loss 4 idiots for 4 days
    Day 1: 1,500 calories
    Day 2: 1,800 calories
    Day 3: 1,200 calories
    Day 4: 2,000 calories

    so am i doing this right???
    thanx =)

    oh yeah!
    ~!~ is it okay to have coffee and tea?

    • ANSWER:
      i've never heard of Fat Loss 4 Idiots, but there's an offshoot of Weight Watchers called The Wendie Plan that has the same concept for staggering calories. and yes, you CAN eat whatever you want as long as you stay in your limit. but think about it...one Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger at Jack in the Box is 28 WW points, which is roughly 1400 calories. that's not factoring in the fat either. that's almost your day 1 and 2 limit, and over your day 3 limit. thankfully, you're making healthy choices.

      if you're on vacation...dude, it's vacation! no problem! it's not like you're using it as an excuse to get an Awesome Blossom, are you? don't worry about it. people who are perfectly on the WW plan and don't exercise at all still lose weight. even if you don't after vacation...it's vacation. no biggie.

      and yes, it's okay to have BLACK coffee and UNSWEETENED tea. obviously, adding creamers and sugars to those add calories, and as long as it fits in your plan, cool. otherwise, stick with black and unsweetened, those have 0 calories(some teas have 5...wooo...). just make sure you drink extra water, because caffeine will leech the water out of you.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't believe that it would be illegal to use a method of weight-loss because you're past a certain age o.o It would probably be more illegal to say that you're not allowed to, due to some kind of discrimination.

    i need help fast

    • ANSWER:
      You shouldn't concentrate so much on food, as exercise is by far the most important thing for losing weight/burning calories and fat.

That being said, you do need to make changes to your diet, like eating less fatty greasy foods like grilled chicken, salads, fruit etc.

    Do I miss my opportunity of fat loss if I'm eating bulky carb foods like bread if I'm wanting to get ripped?
    Will I have to increase my workouts more than I'm increasing them already in order to lose more fat because of eating oatmeal and whole wheat bread when I should've been eating vegetables as the highest amount carb? I'm already doing high intensity strength training right now but will it put me in a position to go at a higher intensity right now because of this set back?

      if you're monitoring your carb intake, then it doesn't really matter from where you're getting your carbs unless you're ripping for a contest, in which case you need to bin any and all starches for about 10days pre-contest.

  22. QUESTION:
    Does the food lovers fat loss system work or no?
    I am watching the infomercial right now. And it looks very interesting something I think I might would want to try. But not sure if it's worth the money or not help?

    • ANSWER:
      If you are looking to lose weight rapidly, either to be more healthy, to look better or to have more energy than ever before, it's going to take lots of dedication on your part if you hope to make your changes last a long time. You can lose weight quickly but if you want your weight loss to be long lasting, it's important to form new and better habits. You are about to read about some techniques that really work in losing weight fast.

      A lot of people on diets who are trying to lose weight quickly do not realize how many bonus calories they are eating in sneaky ways. For example, if you consume two to three cups of coffee every day, they have loads of cream and sugar, which can add up to a good amount of calories. Similarly, salad is a healthy and does not contain many calories, but not if you put on loads of high calorie salad dressing. Try adding a little oil and vinegar or some salt and pepper to your salad as an alternative for regular dressings. If you like to eat out, you don't know what is in the salad dressing. In addition, salad bars are known for having plenty of high calorie foods such as potato salad and pasta. Just because you have it in a salad does not mean that it is low fat. All of these toppings and dressings can hinder your goal of losing weight quickly.

      Don't forget about breakfast if you hope to lose weight fast. In general, you are better off eating more early in the day, and taking in fewer calories as it gets later.

      If you don't eat breakfast, you reverse this process, as you will be getting hungrier as the day goes on. It's always a bad idea to eat lots of calories at night because your body can't possibly burn those calories away. When you eat most of your calories for breakfast, then you can have the entire day to burn them off, and you also won't crave those calories as the night approaches. Also, eating lots of heavy snacks and large meals before bedtime is a bad idea because your body won't be able to digest them in your sleep. Losing weight fast can be done, but you should eat most of your calories in the morning and keep to a low calorie diet later on.

      You can lose weight quickly by always drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Staying hydrated is important for staying healthy and having your metabolism run efficiently. You will find that you aren't hungry as often when you drink lots of water. In most cases, when a person feels hungry, the person is really thirsty. To get the benefits of being hydrated, there is no substitute for water. Most energy drinks, for instance, have high sugar contents and so they do little good for weight loss. Even healthy beverages such as fruit juices, which are high in natural sugars, should not be consumed excessively, but you can drink as much water as you want. That's one habit you should probably adopt if you want to lose as much weight as possible. In closing, losing weight fast requires focusing on and adopting better and healthier habits. If you truly want to succeed at any fitness goal, you have to remain consistent and make it a part of your day to day routine. The above suggestions on losing weight quickly can help you achieve your goal, but you have to be willing to put in the effort.

    What is the best pre and post morning workout shake or food for fat loss?
    I am 6ft, 265lbs, I walk a lot at work and eat any thing i want. I used to be in shape about 2 years ago at 170lbs. I like to do my cardio first thing in the morning. My goal is to get back down to 170 and maintain. I am wanting something fast before and after my morning run. I would like to eat breakfast as my Post please help!

    • ANSWER:
      I have done a TON of personal research about this, as I had a friend who did a "cleanse" program based on protein shakes which promised rapid body fat loss. I work in the medical field, and tried everything I could to talk him out of doing this, as everyone knows rapid weight loss is unhealthy and you just put it back on quickly... right?

      Well, I had to eat my words. The program you want is called Isagenix. The reason it is the best protein shake available is because it has activated enzymes in it, so as soon as you mix it with water, it becomes activated, which means you need to drink it within a few minutes of making it, and as you are drinking it, it is already activated, so the protein is absorbed into your body easier and more completely. Also, Isagenix uses an organic whey protein imported from New Zealand, where they don't use any chemicals in their dairy industry.

      It sounds like you have a similar body shape/size as I used to have. I am 6'3 and used to be 297lbs. After first trying to talk my friend out of his cleanse idea, and then seeing his results, I started Isagenix and got down to 217 in something around 6 months. I have settled around 225, and that was 2 1/2 years ago, haven't gained a lb back since then. They also offer a full refund if it doesn't work for you. Anyway, shoot me an email if you want some more information or proof that it works.

      cheers,
      Andrew.

  28. QUESTION:
    Instead of looking for foods that melt fat & produce weight loss, why don't the experts focus on?
    eliminating the appetite? Ex: Divorce, fear, the flu, and emergency situations wipe out the appetite.
    Can't they create a pill that produces a non interest in food and eating?

    • ANSWER:
      Because in most of those cases your ill, when your body doesn't have the energy to digest food, or something bad or dangerous is happening, normally your survival instincts kick in, its temporary, you would need some serious drugs to wipe out your appetite using divorce fear or an emergency.

  29. QUESTION:
    dose the food lovers fat loss system really work?
    because i really want to try it when i have the money.

    • ANSWER:
      You can design your own fat loss system without any extra money.
      About 3,500 calories adds up to about 1 pound. This applies whether they are food calories coming in, or calories (burned by exercise) going out.
      If you eat 3,500 calories more than your body needs, you will put on about 1 pound. If you use up 3,500 calories more than you eat, you will lose about 1 pound in weight.

  30. QUESTION:
    My doctor told me to use Alli (OTC weight loss drug). What foods do you suggest that are low in fat?
    I'm going grocery shopping in a few days and am wondering what good foods are available that are low in fat. Basically I need a grocery list LOL.

    TIA

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know but be ready to change your pants a lot. That stuff makes you leak oil from your butt and makes you need to poop a lot.

      alli™ works by preventing the absorption of some of the fat you eat. The fat passes out of your body, so you may have bowel changes, known as treatment effects. You may get:

      gas with oily spotting
      loose stools
      more frequent stools that may be hard to control

      I hate this stuff. You're better off taking Green Tea supplements

  31. QUESTION:
    Fat loss food questions?
    I read this ezine article.

    http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Science-of-Weight,-Fat-Loss&id=3651337

    It makes no sense because of the horrible way it's written. I mainly don't understand the summary-

    "The fundamentals of weight loss are simple. Follow a medium to high protein, low starch, medium to high fibrous carbohydrate, no sugar nutrition plan. Eliminate all white flour, white rice, white sugar, and alcohol. Once your diet is in balanced we focus on burning calories and encourage low glycemic starchy carbohydrates (i.e. sweet potatoes, Dreamfields pasta) within an hour of post workout. This is called the golden hour and instead of storing fat, the food you eat after the workout is stored as muscle glycogen (stored carbohydrate) and used to repair your muscles. This is good, because you are not storing fat and instead replenishing your muscles to recover quickly. Another time is right when you get up in the morning (within a half hour)."

    What does 'low starch' mean? Does it mean limit the amount of processed carbohydrates like white bread and simple carbohydrates.

    What does 'high fibrous carbohydrates' mean? Does it mean to eat more non refined carbohydrates like whole grain bread and complex carbohydrates?

    I need examples for both of these things so that I can plan my diet better.

  34. QUESTION:
    what foods to eat and what excersizes to do to loss belly and thy fat ?
    I weight 67kilo and im 164 cm tall im trying to loss my belly and thy fat please help ( and just general stuff to lose weigh)

    • ANSWER:
      jogging is an excellent exercise because it let you lose weight
      evenly throughout your whole body. If you want to lose weight in
      specific areas, you should target them with exercises. If they are
      your problem areas, they will be very difficult to tone. You will have
      to work double on them. The best approach is this:
      1. Lower/control your daily calorie intake (control for normal
      weight, lower for overweight).
      2. Run/jog to lower your overall body fat percentage.
      3. Target your problem areas with exercises.
      an excellent exercise, you can do it in front of your TV: sit on a
      stool, and put your toes under something (piece of heavy furniture,
      for example). In your hands hold a little dumbbell. Please, make sure
      that it is not very heavy, start with one kilo, for example, or you
      will damage your back and spine! Slowly move the upper part of your
      body back, until it's parallel with the ground. Stop for a second and
      move it back to the sitting position. Repeat ten times. Every week add
      to the number of repetitions. You will see the results in a week,
      guaranteed! You will see or feel under the fat - if you have any - six
      pack and muscles. Dumbbells do wonders. Much better than these
      crunches - I came up to three hundreds and there was no results AT
      ALL. With the dumbbells you will see it in a week.

  35. QUESTION:
    Weight loss foods?
    I need some good food chioces. I need to lose some weight, I have a 7 month old and I am still carrying the baby weight with me. I go to school from 8-2 and work from 3-9 then come home to do it all over again. I have very little time for exercise so I want to try to eat some foods to target weight loss. Right now I am kind of a stress eater, I feel very bad about the weight I've gained and anytime someone says something to me about it I get very upset and eat. I really need to do something about it and I think that making better food choices will help. So if someone could give me a list of fat loss targeting foods that would be great. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I knew in both a well-educated and intuitive sense the diet that I needed, wanted, and believed in, but it hadn’t quite jelled in my mind until I saw it in The Fat Resistance Diet (Broadway Books, 2005), by Leo Galland, M.D. As soon as I did I knew it was for me and my family, not just for weight loss, but for life. I am very partial to the work of Dr. Galland, as he is dedicated to the leading edge science of healthy nutrition and holistic healing, and his other books have become bibles in my family. This one will be, too. I began the diet the day after I saw the book, and I am here to herald it far and wide as a disease-fighting diet that can bring vibrant health. Here is why:

  36. QUESTION:
    foods that burn fat/help during weight loss?
    does anyone have a list of foods that can help burn fat
    or are good to eat during weight loss?

    i gained 15 extra pounds over the summer (ice cream =/ how evil)
    and im trying to lose it

    i re-started exercising today so i have that covered
    i heard bananas are bad
    then i heard they were good
    what are they?!

    • ANSWER:
      Go to fitness.com. They have lots of healthy foods and recipes to choose from as well as good ideas to get healthier. Try to eat lean meats, veggies, fruits, whole grains and drink lots of water instead of other drinks. Skip on desserts as much as possible and keep a food diary if you can-it really helps you see how much you eat in a day. Good luck!

  37. QUESTION:
    Are These Foods Bad for Weight/Fat Loss?
    I have been losing fat... I have been eating these foods...is/are any of them holding me back?

    Fat Free, Refried Beans (Can) No Fat Whatsoever
    Fat Free, Cream Cheese
    1-2 Slices Whole Wheat Bread
    Organic Mini Carrots
    Light Chunk Tuna in Water
    Sugar Free Jell-O

    So pretty much I eat these foods..and am losing weight... just wondering if any of these foods make you say "that will stop you from losing weight!"... any of em' holding me back?

    • ANSWER:
      Whole Wheat Bread & the carrots are really great for you. Tuna is a pretty good source of protein too. The rest aren't the most nutrient-rich foods in the world, but I don't think they will kep you from losing weight. I don't think you should eat only those items though, if that's what you're doing. Keep a variety of foods.
      Best of luck :)

  38. QUESTION:
    Diet foods for weight and fat loss?
    I cant really stick to a diet.. Im still only 17 and eats what my mom cooks at home.. As a asian family, we eat a lot of WHITE RICE... I LOVE rice, so that makes it even harder for me to go on a diet.. I doubt there are any healthy pre-packaged foods, but if you know one let me know! I don't think i can stop eating rice completely and just eat the food my mom makes by itself, because the type of vietnamese foods she makes, is really salty...

    Does anyone know of a good vegetable and fruit drink i can make every day?
    Or is there a good diet food i can eat every day and not get tired of eating eat?
    Would replacing white rice with brown rice actually help with losing weight and fat?

    And of course i am going to be TRYING to do cardio as much as i can, its really difficult being overweight with asthma.

    I already drink lots of water, about a gallon of water a day.

    If you know any websites that have a diet plan that would ACTUALLY help me, please let me know

    • ANSWER:
      For the first part of your question: you can still eat white rice, just eat it in moderation. Measure it out if you have to. Instead of two cups of rice have one cup or a half a cup. Switching to brown rice would also help. There is a lot more fiber and nutrients in brown rice.

      Second part: V8 is a good vegetable drink and low in calories. Most fruit juices contain a lot of sugar, so I would suggest eating your fruit instead of drinking juice.

      Third part: Any exercise is good exercise. Start out with walking. Then eventually you build up stamina and you can walk faster. Lift light weights. The more muscle you have, the faster your metabolism.

      4th part: Water is really good. Keep drinking it. Add lemon or lime to it to flavor it up a bit.

      5th part: Cookinglight.com offers great recipes

  39. QUESTION:
    are these foods related to fat/weight loss?
    Does drinking honey help in weight loss?
    What about drinking those instant Japanese green tea?
    Or lemon?
    Or eating spicy things? Chilli?
    Does eating apples help lose weight?
    What kind of food helps to boost metabolism rate?

    thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      1.Honey really just contains sugar and thats about it, so no, its just a fad.
      2.Green tea is considered to be helpful with diets because it is a dhiarettic (sp?), so you loose water weight basically by being more "regular".. But it doesnt burn calories or fat or anything. People get hung up thinking it does... it might for like a week because you're carrying less weight around with you but its water weight, not fat, so they end up drinking TONS of it. More than about 2 or 3 cups of green tea a day is actually bad for you. However, it is almost completely water so it helps you get your 8 glasses a day. It helps with digestion but I wouldn't say it helps so much with weight loss.
      3. Lemon.. havent heard of that one, but usually things that are acidic like that are good for you. I wouldn't call it a weight loss food though. Again, health, but not weight loss.
      4. Spicy things ARE good for you, because they contain antioxidents, and also for the same reason as green tea. Chili is a generalization, because it itself is not spicy, only the spices it contains. And chili spices are generally powdered so even less so. Things like fresh jalepaneos and banana peppers are the best (my favorite is pickled hot banana pepper rings).
      5. Eating apples is likely the closest thing on the list to a "weight loss" food. There are certain foods which contain "negative calories" meaning they actually use more energy (calories) to digest than they contain. Very few fruits contain "negative calories", i think apples is one of the only ones. Many vegetables, however, contain negative calories. Celery is one of the best, burning about 20 calories per stalk (it contains almost nothing, all water, and the strings are hard to digest). Do a google search for "negative calorie foods".. you should get a list of about 30. However, the misconception is that if you eat only these foods you will loose weight. That is not true, because you have to maintain a certain calorie intake or your body goes into starvation mode. This is usually around 1300 for girls and 1450 for guys. Its a bit lower if you are petite/skinny and more if you are bigger. If you dip below this calorie intake, your body senses itself starving. So it starts to pack away EVERYTHING you put into it, and you can only maintain that level of intake for so long, you will also eventually start eatting more and gaining weight. Girls who say "i currently eat 700 calories a day and dont loose weight, should i drop to 400" are completely wrong. Your body can't live on 700 calories, so EVERY TIME you eat something.. Every bit of fat it contains, water, etc. will be stored away by your body, since it senses hard times ahead. These girls can't keep eatting like that forever and when the finally give in and eat 2000 calories a day for 2 or 3 days... they've just gained 2 pounds of fat and lost nothing. (It may work for the first coouple days but not after that).. So yes, if you are feeling hungry, negative calories foods are good to supplement your diet and fill you up, but in the long run they will make you GAIN weight (sorry for my little rant there)

    thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You can always eat negative calorie foods to lose weight.

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

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

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

      Negative Calorie Fruits:
      apples
      cranberries
      grapefruit
      lemons
      mangoes
      oranges
      pineapple
      raspberries
      strawberries
      tangerines

      Negative Calorie Vegetables:
      asparagus
      beets
      broccoli
      cabbage (green)
      carrots
      cauliflower
      celery
      Chile peppers (hot)
      cucumber
      dandelions
      endives
      garden cress
      garlic
      green beans
      lettuce
      onions
      papaya
      radishes
      spinach
      turnips

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

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Dear Athletes. I need a weight/fat loss diet routine that can benefit me in my sport?
    I used to be competitive in a variety of sports before I went to college. I was in relatively good shape. I was muscular, but not overly muscular. Since I went to college I have gained alot of fat. I would guess my body fat percentage is anywhere from 20 - 30%

    I am 6'2 and I weigh in at 225lbs after a meal. When I wake up I am usually about 220lbs. Last time I was in peak condition, I was weighing in at about 188lbs. I asked my coaches what I should eat but I didn't like their answers..

    I need a diet that is cheap and effective that will help me get through the days of hard work and nights of training.

    I work 5 days a week and train 3 nights a week for about 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Mostly cardio style workouts.

    I am looking for advice from other athletes that train on what to eat all day every day.. also what I should drink.

    My current diet right now is pretty much anything I find in my fridge, or anything friends or family buys me.. I also drink beer, juice or water. I consume about 10 - 15 beers a week. 1L of water a day. Maybe a glass or two of juice a day.

    Please help. I want to be fit again! tired of being fat.

    P.S I am not trying to gain alot of muscle. I already have a fair bit.. I just want to expose them by burning all my fat.

    • ANSWER:
      Well, quitting the beer is a great place to start. At least try to limit your beer intake to one per night.

      You need about 1gram of protein per pound of body weight. Good sources are grilled chicken, turkey, fish and egg whites, as well as beans.

      Avoid white carbs like the plague/influenza. Switch to whole wheat everything, and brown rice. No sugar or artificial sweeteners, either (and that includes jelly and syrups).

      Eat more veggies - they'll fill you up with few calories. Try spray-on dressings, they are very low-calorie, too.

      Drink water before, during and after exercise. Water is your best friend if you want to lose weight. 2% milk and lowfat yogurt are good for you, too. I'll post a link to sample menus - just note you probably need a lot more protein. Hope this helps!

    I have a Diet Whey Fat Loss, i want to know whether it will help me lose fat and gain muscle?
    I have the Protein Shake of Fat loss called Diet Whey.

    Innovation for the Modern Athlete.

    I want a body just like Cristiano ronaldo? what u think?

    • ANSWER:
      Use it and don't buy any more. It's bogus crap you don't need.

      Here's what you need to know about protein shakes.

      The most popular protein supplements are no more than milk with the nutrition extracted leaving the whey which is then sold for several times the amount you would pay for dehydrated milk. The result is you get less nutrition and spend more money. How does that make sense?

      Your body does not store protein as it does fat. It makes the protein it needs when it needs it. And, if you're building muscle, it needs it over the entire recovery time between workouts and not just before or just after working out. That makes the idea of dumping a bunch of protein into your system at one time senseless.

      Most people grossly overestimate the amount of protein they need. Here's how much you need according to the NIH. --> http://www.cdc.gov/nutrition/everyone/basics/protein.html#How%20much%20protein . Most people in the developed world get that amount of protein in their daily diet because it amounts to no more than a glass of milk, some beans, and a piece of meat. Excess protein is just wasted and most will be excreted by the body or used as fuel supporting fat gain.

      Protein supplements are also bad for diets because they are not whole food, have almost no fiber, still contribute calories, but cannot provide the satisfaction and appetite suppression of a natural digestive process. Protein has the same number of calories per gram as sugar.

      Here's why protein shakes should be avoided:

      • They are not carefully controlled by the FDA as are foods and drugs.
      • They may have harmful or undesirable side effects.
      • May contain metabolically or biologically unavailable proteins because of processing.
      • Will probably provide more protein than you need with the rest going to waste.
      • Can unbalance a diet and upset the macronutrient ratios.
      • Provide you with extra and unnecessary calories.
      • May contain junk food ingredients to make them tasty.
      • Possibly provide you unwanted contaminants or toxins. FDA does not require testing.
      • Are overpriced and waste money.
      • Can ruin a fat loss diet.
      • Replaces what you really need - good food!

      The secret to building muscle, burning fat, and eating healthy is very simply to eat the correct and optimal amount of whole and varied foods as recommended by the US National Institute of Health. Now here are some references from the experts.

      Here is what the US National Institute of Health warns about supplements. "Always check with your health care provider before taking a supplement, especially when combining or substituting them with other foods or medicine."
      Ref: http://ods.od.nih.gov/Health_Information/ODS_Frequently_Asked_Questions.aspx#Need

      Here’s a white paper which debunks the myth of the protein supplement. Note the following excerpt...“At present there is no evidence to suggest that supplements are required for optimal muscle growth or strength gain.”
      Ref: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15212752

      Here's one more study to read. Note the excerpt..."Consumption of a recovery drink (whey protein, amino acids, creatine, and carbohydrate) after strength training workouts did not promote greater gains in FFM (Fat free muscle) compared with consumption of a carbohydrate-only drink.”
      Ref: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15105028

      Here’s another from Live Science. Note the excerpt…“Medical researchers have advised against protein supplements for years for the average person. But many sports trainers continue to push them on amateur athletes simply because they don't know any better.”
      Ref: http://www.livescience.com/health/protein-supplements-100202.html#

      Here's what Consumer Reports had to say..."But our investigation, including tests at an outside laboratory of 15 protein drinks, a review of government documents, and interviews with health and fitness experts and consumers, found most people already get enough protein, and there are far better and cheaper ways to add more if it's needed. Some protein drinks can even pose health risks, including exposure to potentially harmful heavy metals, if consumed frequently. All drinks in our tests had at least one sample containing one or more of the following contaminants: arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury. Those metals can have toxic effects on several organs in the body."
      Ref: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine-archive/2010/july/food/protein-drinks/overview/index.htm

  3. QUESTION:
    Fat Loss dieting...just looking for some tips!?
    I know that there are a lot of questions in this category, I just need some help..

    I am an ex-athlete that had a high metabolism when I was active...Now that I am a little older it has caught up to me. I am 5'11" and weight about 210 (more of a muscular build though) and need to get rid of the "spare tire". Runnig can be a chore for me because I blew out a knee and still have problems with it...

    Mind you I do still like to go out and have an occasional drink, which I limit to Vodka and Soda water...I have cut out beer and wine and have cut out most breads from my diet...Where do I go from here.

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Limit these foods to once or twice a week, they really put the weight on! cheeses, sodas, chips, fast foods, fried foods, sweet treats. Eat fresh fruits, more veggies.
      Be sure to eat a good breakfast.
      Cut your portions in half later in the day, especially at dinner.
      If you eat anything after dinner, make sure it's healthy.
      Drink alot of water.
      Keep active, park far away from the store, walk, walk, walk!
      If you do eat bread (and it's ok) eat wheat. Try to not cut out all of your breads, this is carb and it gives you energy, you'll get too tired if you don't have any.
      No bacon or sausage or eggs except for once a week.
      Exercise! This will speed your weight loss.

  4. QUESTION:
    Are Fat Burner Shakes Alright To Use For Me?
    I am a 15 year old female athlete

    I weigh 175lbs and am 5'11''

    My goal weight is 150, but I just can't seem to lose my fat even though I do have a pretty nutritional diet. I am very active (I play varsity basketball), but I think that a fat burning shake would aid in my weight loss.

    Are fat burner shakes alright for me to use, even at my age?

    • ANSWER:
      I've never heard of any fat burning product that worked...if it were that easy, there wouldn't be so many fat people...if you aren't losing weight then you need to lower your calorie intake, increase your activity level, or both...fat is lost when you consume fewer calories a day than you burn...I don't think a 'fat burning shake' is going to give you the desired results, but you will put money in their pocket...

      * Lean Roast Beef

      * Cottage Cheese (low fat)

      * Eggs (scrambled, hard-boiled)

      * Broiled Flounder (non breaded)

      CARBS(Carbohydrates) FOODS

      * Mixed Salad (only lettuce, tomatoes, and
      veggies allowed)

      * Dressing should be Low Cal dressing. Use sparingly,
      you should not smother the salad with too much
      dressing.
      * Bread (should be "oat" or "bran" type bread
      only)

      * Mixed Vegetables (fresh or frozen)

      I hope this will help you to lose weight and the most important without any harmful diet pills.

  6. QUESTION:
    Dear Men Athletes/PowerLifters/Fighters. Need Help With Diet/Workout/Whey Protein?
    I used to be a competitive athlete. But I never lifted much or worked out much. The exercise I got was from practise and games. I played so much that I was in great shape. I didn't have abs, but I was pretty sculpted and muscular. My athletic size was 6'2, 194lbs. Now I am 6'2 240lbs. I don't play any sports or exercise. I haven't in the last 2 years. I am not on a specific diet. I haven't gained much muscle, that is all fat. I probably gained maybe 5 pounds muscle off the 194 at best.

    How do I increase rapid fat loss? I don't really want to get puffed up and big like a body builder. I wouldn't mind building up my bicept size, but other than that, I want to lose the fat I got stored in my spare tire, arse and hips. I hear that Whey Protein Isolates help speed up the process. Is this true? Anyways.. Should I jog alot? Should I eat a can of tuna before or after a workout? Should I buy Whey Isolates? I rly want to get moving here and get into shape.
    I SAID GUYS.. athletes.. I don't want any tips from a broad.
    I researched Hydroxycut and there is no way it will work with me because I have a cr@p heart rate. It says it is the equivalent of 3 cups of coffee as far as caffeine goes. Once I had 2 cups of coffee in a row, and my heart was going insanely fast and I felt like I was going to keel over at any moment. I don't think it is a safe choice although it seems very efficient.

    • ANSWER:
      Kev is right. Cardio is the ultimate fat loss tool you will ever need to know.

      Short intense cardio is the best. It kind of works like working out does. You do short burts of high intensity cardio, that stimulates your muscle which increases your metabolism for short periods of time. Never undertake in any endurance style cardio, ever! Unless of course you want all that hard earned muscle to be burnt up as energy.

      Some short intense cardio options:
      -Skipping with a jump rope.
      -Swimming.
      -Sprinting and up hill sprinting (up hill sprinting is my personal favourite).
      -Trampoline (a close second favourite).
      -Rock climbers.
      -Stair climbs.

      So don't jog. Sprint!

      For bicep size just use the high intensity progression technique. I like bicep curls or barbell curls the most. But if you want just apply a day a week for your biceps that could include hammer curls, bicep curls, preacher curls, concentration curls and barbell curls. Only do 1 set of each. Rep until failure in a fairly low rep range and each week try adding more weight for the same reps or do more reps with the same weight. That applies to any lifting exercise you do.

      Whey protein isolate is just a more pure form of whey concentrate. Except concentrate is far cheaper. They will have little to no affect on your fat loss but are a great way to boost your energy and recovery before and after a workout.

      I wouldn't eat a can of tuna before a workout because it's absorbed pretty quickly. Save tuna for your post-workout meal and eat a bowl of oatmeal or something else that is slowly released for your pre-workout meal.

      Hope this helps and good luck!

  7. QUESTION:
    Fat Burning - Any other options?
    I exercise regularly, both cardio and strength training through a mixture of different sports. This ranges from gym sessions to swimming, kickboxing and the occasional run. Every time I work out, I aim to build up a good sweat and have to finish feeling like I've done something, otherwise what's the point?? My diet has remained consistent - small, regular meals or snacks, including 3x calcium portions per day, 5x fruit and veg and a good mix of carbs and protein.

    I want to make it clear at this point, I am not concerned about my weight. In fact, the only time I make it below 10.5st is when I'm really ill, even when I was a UK size 8. I exercise because I enjoy the way it makes me feel and I like to know I can run up the stairs if I need to without dying.

    Four years ago, I was a competitive athlete, training twice a day, five days a week. My body fat was 18.9%. Definitely low for the average person, but about right for what I was doing.

    Shortly after that point, I had major surgery on my spine. Although I had to stop competing and cut back a little, I still remained fairly active and, although my body fat increased to 22%, it was healthy and didn't bother me in the slightest. I had reduced my calorie intake to a relative level.

    Following an accident and two further lots of surgery two years ago, I've gradually built up my exercise again and, over the last 6 months have really nailed my training. I work out 5-8 times per week, with rest days as appropriate. My body doesn't feel overly tired.

    At the moment, I have managed to get my VO2 score back up to around where it was prior to my back surgery (52.8) and my muscles are as strong as they were at that point too. I feel great! I have bags of energy.

    So what's my problem? My body fat has continued to creep up. Despite getting my fitness levels back, having a balanced diet and regular and varied exercise, it has reached 28% and I cannot get it to reduce. For the first time in my adult life, I'm having to buy larger clothes because the increase in muscle and lack of fat loss means mine are getting rather tight!

    I used to feel like I fully understood my body and used to easily know how and when to push it, what affected my body fat and muscle training etc and, to a point, I still have that, but I am totally stumped about this body fat thing.

    Anyone got any ideas? I am a 32 year-old female.

    I do NOT do fad diets or quick fixes. If you can't put the hard work in, how can you feel proud of what you've achieved?

    • ANSWER:
      As females age, they produce less estrogen and that results in an increase in testosterone, hence the increase in muscle mass - In addition, the metabolism slows down as you age. It's virtually impossible for you to gain muscle without gaining some fat, so you need to decide which is more important. Gain muscle and some fat. Or keep muscle mass the same and lose some fat...

  8. QUESTION:
    What is the best diet plan for my weight loss?
    Hey everyone,
    So i'm a 17 year old girl, 5'0", 109 lbs. I'm a competitive athlete participating in running, boxing, pilates, and soccer. i'm in the gym nearly every day and am constantly active. I need a diet plan that will optimize my energy but also help me burn fat. Any tips? Past experiences?
    P.s. i dont eat any dairy or meat except for fish and eggs.
    Thanks a lot :)

    • ANSWER:
      If you really do all of those activities and you are at that weight, chances are it is mostly muscle weight. If you are truly serious about losing 5 - 10 pounds, which is what I would assume, try substituting what you eat for breakfast with fruit. I'm not talking about 1 banana or 1 apple, I'm talking eat as much fruit as you can to comfortably fill your belly up. When I started my raw vegan diet, that is the first thing I did to transition into the diet. I did that for a couple of weeks and lost weight with that only change! Then I proceeded to substitute my lunch with a huge veggie salad topped with raw dressings or a green smoothie. And so on... Thing is, most people think to lose weight, you need to starve yourself. Actually, it's the other way around - eat until you are full but fill up on raw, fresh plant-based food!

  9. QUESTION:
    I need a good weight loss book, site or program that can help people who are active but have stubborn fat?
    I started working out as of the new year and as usual no weight loss. I actually gained weight my first week and i followed it the diet to at "T" (and no it wasnt muscle according to my scale) I have always been active, like extremely active but no weight loss. And I always just give up because I dont go up or down no matter how hard i train. I know its not good that I eat 1 meal a day its just a habit. I dont eat sweets and candies either ( i have an extreme fear of cavities) , i would say my meal is usually balanced and yes I skip desert and no its not huge, home cooked no fast food. I dont have a underlying medical problem either got all that checked.

    I would describe myself as the most athletic obese person you'll ever meet. Like in High school I played a real sport every season (volleyball, basketball, track and field) and I was a varsity athlete as a freshman and I am the same size I am now, 4yrs down the road.
    So if anyone who is kind of like me could help. Like if you were active and overweight and the fat never came off but then you switched it up and it started to come off. What did you do? Or what would you suggest.

    Like I can deal with my gut, we have grown very close, I just can't stand that b*tch called back fat! She must go. And I did p90x, slim in 6, and other workout thingys. I dont mind working out @ all I just need something more effective. And natural, I really dont want to use pills at all.

    In other words Stubborn Fat, how do I target it.
    NO PILLS NO PILLS NO PILLS.

    • ANSWER:

  10. QUESTION:
    Are men's bodies held to a higher standard?
    -Women can be short or tall, somewhat muscular (hard for woman to get buff anyway) or 'skinnyfat', a little bit tubby or skinny with little breasts and curves to share and men will love them. Just look at all the actresses and models that have 'boyish' bodies with the natural born female hip structure that men hold as sex symbols.

    Not so for men. While for a woman it is enough that she does not overeat and get fat, a man has to pump iron and eat a lot (overeat) to gain muscle to get the masculine, brawny look. The heavy lifting often leads to permanent injuries to the back and extremities and the food consumption required leads to fat gain. The fat gain requires a fat cutting diet which is carried out carefully so as to preserve as much muscle as possible. Muscle loss when dieting is practically inevitable or at least very hard to prevent to a larger or lesser extent.

    If a man is short, he is at a severe disadvantage in the eyes of many women. A man of average height is found suboptimal by many women of above average height or even shorter women. A woman's femininity is not compromised by her exhibiting 'masculine' height. Instead, her height is now used as the measuring stick that men must live up to although she herself is the exception.

    Finally there is the issue of the genital area. It appears a lot of women have a desire for a larger than average penis and many women openly ridicule male members they deem defective. Women's genitals are rarely scrutinized equally harshly. A consequence of the bodybuilding mentioned above is that the resulting fat gain will obscure the penis to some extent and make it appear smaller. Bigger muscles may also create the impression of lesser penile size.
    -
    Indeed, it appears somewhat unfair for women to judge men's genitals unless they present some kind of an equivalent of their own open to judging. But rarely is this suggested.
    Women sometimes argue that breast size could be a similar issue for women but this is negated by the fact that a lot of men adore female athletes who have very low body fat (small breasts) and the fact that many female sex symbols as well as women routinely appearing in men's erotica are small chested. It's just not the same thing. Not the same intimacy, not the same importance.
    -
    Women's privacy from peeking etc. is often enforced harder than men's with women going into men's bathrooms tolerated more than the other way around for example, although men's privates are more out in the open than women's which makes nudity a more sensitive issue for men because of the demands and possible ridicule resulting from being caught in the nude or with genitals exposed.
    -
    Women's chests have also been sort of artificially heightened to sacred status while men's are not. A man must treat going topless as no big deal and touching a man's chest without his consent is not considered as much of a violation as touching a woman's chest although men also have at least rudimentary breasts and plenty of muscle to make up for it. It is this sexualization and mystification of the breasts that has almost granted them the status of sex organs and arguably rendered women a greater aura of sexuality and mystery while men's bodies with the exception of parts waist down are treated as ordinary and asexual.

    Men's genitals are also occasionally (if not frequently) ridiculed on the basis of perceived vulnerability. Women's bodies (or genitals) are rarely if ever ridiculed for their overall softness and vulnerability. Instead, men and women both celebrate women's natural untrained physique as a work of art and grace. All this stems somewhat from the fact that men are judged on a more or less utilitarian or action oriented basis and so people dig 'flaws' out of men's bodies while sparing women's.

    As for athletism, it is often said that "men are stronger on average" and "women are more flexible on average".
    Truth being that there is not a corresponding muscle in a woman's body that would be as strong as a man's yet there are studies indicating that men may be equally or even more flexible than women in some joints and/or ranges of motion. The world's greatest male contortionists can surely bend like any woman, at least in many of the major joints of the body but the world's strongest women cannot rival men in any type of strength event so these beloved sayings do not make justice to men.
    -
    Yet despite this, graceful athletism or sports are often reserved for women or men are stigmatized for engaging in them, such as rhytmic gymnastics or ballet. There's also talk about how men dancing look silly but women somehow don't.

    • ANSWER:
      I do agree with you about how "Penis Size" has become a joke in the media. It is the epitome of male-bashing.

      It's perfectly acceptable for comedians and sitcoms to joke about penis size and guys with small dicks...but how come you never hear any jokes about chicks with wide-set vagina's? Or droopy clitoral hoods?

      Men are defined by their penis and made more self-conscious about it than a woman's "Vagina Size"!

    • ANSWER:
      In some ways it is probably true that men's bodies are held to a higher standard than women's.
      But women's bodies are held to a higher standard than men's bodies in other ways.

      When most men look at women they do not see what most women do. When most women look at men they do not see what most men do.
      Men and women have different things they focus on. With men, it might be something sexual. With women, it might be something undefinable. But both men and women are trivial if they only look at bodies. There are empty headed shallow men just as there are empty headed shallow women. Both men and some women have been taught somehow that their own body shape, hair style, appearance, are important. But from what I have seen it is more common for that kind of shallowness in their own appearance to be present in women.

  12. QUESTION:
    Opinion about my weight loss?
    Hi, im miles im 15 i weigh around 155 and have around 12% body fat. Im an athlete but I've just kinda been obessing about my body all the time cas i wanna weigh less. im stopping drinking alot of soda but should i really be going on a true diet?

    • ANSWER:
      At your age (and at ANY age in my opinion) dieting is NOT the answer. Dieting is nothing short of an unmitigated disaster for your metabolism and your general health. It is better to get high quality, whole food nutrition than to just "eat less".

      Adopting truly healthy eating habits now will not only give you the results you want with your weight, but will protect your overall health for years to come.

      A few general pointers:

      DON'T drink soda, fruit juices and other sugary drinks.

      DON''T eat processed carbohydrates like chips, pasta, white bread, bagels, crackers and the like.

      DON'T eat fast food or any processed food (too many additives that contribute to weight gain and disease)

      DO include Nutiva coconut oil in your diet for better energy, better metabolism and fat loss without muscle loss.

      DO include high quality omega 3 supplements such as Neptune Krill Oil and chia seed.

      DO include a high quality probiotic or cultured foods in your diet for better digestion (your body can only use the food that it can absorb... the rest is just, well, poo)

      I could go on and on with more suggestions, but I think you can get a good start with these tips.

      Keep in mind, taking anything to the point of obsession is not healthy! Holding an obsessive thought pattern takes a tremendous amount of energy and always has a negative effect on the body/mind.

      If you need help, give EFT a try and see what results you get. You can target it to weight loss, athletic performance or anything else that is going on in our life. I "tap" almost every day and the best part is.... it's FREE to learn! Check it out at www.emofree.com.

  14. QUESTION:
    Would this really worK? please read!!!?
    TO LOSE 20 POUNDS IN 30 DAYS? would this work?!?

    Rule #1: Avoid “white” carbohydrates
    Avoid any carbohydrate that is — or can be — white. The following foods are thus prohibited, except for within 1.5 hours of finishing a resistance-training workout of at least 20 minutes in length: bread, rice, cereal, potatoes, pasta, and fried food with breading. If you avoid eating anything white, you’ll be safe.

    Rule #2: Eat the same few meals over and over again
    The most successful dieters, regardless of whether their goal is muscle gain or fat loss, eat the same few meals over and over again. Mix and match, constructing each meal with one from each of the three following groups:

    Proteins:
 Egg whites with one whole egg for flavor
 Chicken breast or thigh
 Grass-fed organic beef 
Pork

    Legumes:
    Lentils 
Black beans
 Pinto beans

    Vegetables:
    Spinach Asparagus
 Peas
 Mixed vegetables

    Eat as much as you like of the above food items. Just remember: keep it simple. Pick three or four meals and repeat them. Almost all restaurants can give you a salad or vegetables in place of French fries or potatoes. Surprisingly, I have found Mexican food, swapping out rice for vegetables, to be one of the cuisines most conducive to the “slow carb” diet.

    Most people who go on “low” carbohydrate diets complain of low energy and quit, not because such diets can’t work, but because they consume insufficient calories. A 1/2 cup of rice is 300 calories, whereas a 1/2 cup of spinach is 15 calories! Vegetables are not calorically dense, so it is critical that you add legumes for caloric load.

    Some athletes eat 6-8x per day to break up caloric load and avoid fat gain. I think this is ridiculously inconvenient. I eat 4x per day:

    10am - breakfast

    1pm – lunch 5pm - smaller second lunch 7:30-9pm - sports training
 10pm - dinner


    Rule #3: Don’t drink calories
    Drink massive quantities of water and as much unsweetened iced tea, tea, diet sodas, coffee (without white cream), or other no-calorie/low-calorie beverages as you like. Do not drink milk, normal soft drinks, or fruit juice. I’m a wine fanatic and have at least one glass of wine each evening, which I believe actually aids sports recovery and fat-loss. Recent research into reservation supports this.

    Rule #4: Take one day off per week
    I recommend Saturdays as your “Dieters Gone Wild” day. I am allowed to eat whatever I want on Saturdays, and I go out of my way to eat ice cream, Snickers, Take 5, and all of my other vices in excess. I make myself a little sick and don’t want to look at any of it for the rest of the week. Paradoxically, dramatically spiking caloric intake in this way once per week increases fat loss by ensuring that your metabolic rate (thyroid function, etc.) doesn’t down regulate from extended caloric restriction. That’s right: eating pure crap can help you lose fat.

    • ANSWER:
      Most of that sound about right, but drinking things like milk is still ok, as long as you still have your eight tall glasses of water a day, and that you are mindful of how many calories its putting in your body

    Weight loss tips for specific body type! HELP!?
    So i'm 14 and i'm 5'6. I am not looking for a dramatic weight loss program or anything but just advice. I drink a lot of water, and am a competitive athlete but i have a problem. I'm not fat in my arms, and legs, but my stomach is just like.. BAM. its really big and when i sit its really gross. I can't wear any of my shirts cus of the fact my stomach bulges out.

I've tried crunches, and etc but its not working and i need help fast before SUMMER!! (yay babaayy!) Any diets that can seem healthy enough for me to still get the energy to play sports, but help me stop eating constantly? i think im addicited to food. seriously... Help?

    • ANSWER:
      Let me breakdown the science of weight loss.. if you know how your body loses weight, then you'll know why your exercises work or don't work.

      A calorie isn't an actual physical item... you can't look at it with a microscope or anything.. it's a unit of measurement of energy.. specifically

      1 Calorie (AKA a kilo-calorie) that you see on your nutrition facts, is a unit of heat equal to the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree at one atmosphere pressure ...

      Calories come from everything. Vitamins, fiber, carbs, transfat, etc.. Most of the stuff that gets converted into nutrition for your body doesn't affect your weight gain.

      So what's the enemy? Carbs are the enemy, specifically sugar based carbs, this is where 90% of the calories come from in most of your carb based foods. (Dietary Fiber, if i recall correctly, does not get absorbed by the body, but digested)

      Carbs are what gets turned into fat if it's not used up, not calories.. Carbs are just full of calories.

      If you are looking to lose weight, the basic idea is to eat a low carb diet, and work out at the gym. (consult your doctor first)

      Once your body runs out of it's temporary storage of energy, which consists of meals you have eaten in the last 24 to 36 hours, it will turn to 1 of 2 things into energy depending on the exercise you are doing... Muscles or Fat..

      If you do cardio (aerobic) based exercises, you will begin burning fat for energy.. If you do resistance based exercises (anaerobic) then you will start using your muscles for energy (which is part of building new muscles)

      You might want to look at something called "ketone urinalysis sticks" Ketone bodies are created when your body burns fat for energy, and can be tested by these sticks you urinate on. They will turn a purple color. The darker the purple, the more ketones you have, and the more fat you are burning. This is a good way to know if you are burning fat or not.

      The other things you might have been told to worry about other things on foods, such as the "Trans fat" and "partially hydrogenated oils". Contrary to popular belief.. eating fat does not make you fat. What it does do is make your blood pressure higher because of cholesterol build up.

      Carbs are the enemy with weight gain. If your temp storage of energy isn't used up, it will get converted to fat.

      Carbs are found in fruits, starch based foods, and of course our favorite.. Sweets..

      Veggies and meats are little to 0 carbs.. If you see Dietary Fiber under carbs, you can eliminate that from the carb total.. it's carbs from sugar that are the bad guys. Dietary Fiber carbs is digested through the body, not absorbed.

      So the first goal is to deplete your temporary energy storage. If you are running on the treadmill, this will probably take 20-30 minutes. Especially since your body is used to it. Once your body gets used to doing a specific exercise, it gets used to storing energy specifically for that. you don't want to stick to just 1 exercise, you'll never get anywhere after awhile.

      Once you've depleted your temporary storage of energy, anything you start doing after that is gonna use your fat for energy if it's cardio based (aerobic based) exercises.

      Make sure to also drink water. Besides hydration, water is the catalyst used to convert fat into glucose, which then converts into ATP, or the energy molecule. (Ketone Bodies are a side affect of this that leaves your body through urine, this is how most of the used weight leaves your body)

      Your muscles are built by destroying old muscle, and creating new muscles. So as you begin breaking down old muscle, your body uses protein to build new muscle. Don't overdue muscle training, when your temp energy reserve is used up, you can start doing more damage after while than good.

      So summary.. Low carbs diet, variety of different aerobic exercises, and devotion!

      Don't be worried about "Weight" specifically either. Start looking at your body. While doing this type of workout and diet, you will be gaining muscle and losing fat. So if you see you're still at the same weight, your probably gaining muscle and losing fat. Muscle weighs more than fat, so don't worry if you might see your weight rise. Don't worry about the number, look in the mirror and see if you notice it.

      It will take about 2-3 weeks to put your body in exercise mode, where you might start noticing fat being taken off... After about a month and a half, you should notice that you are melting fat off for awhile. You will get to a point as well where you will level out for muscle building and weight loss. Most of the time, people are happy with this area. Just maintain exercising and eat good and you'll keep the pounds off. If you get to your target fat level, and you don't want to lose anymore, start eating carbs again (but not too many) and continue working out. You will put your body in a stale mate and you're body type wont ch

    • ANSWER:
      Try "Volumetrics," a high fiber nutrition plan using lots of complex carbs. You'll need the complex carbs for energy; fiber will keep you full and help you lose weight.

  19. QUESTION:
    Why Haven't I Lost Weight?!?
    I am 5'5" currently 135.8 pounds at roughly 28% body fat and 20 years old. I know I am in a healthy BMI and body fat range for my height/age. Roughly three months ago, I used to weight 126 with a body fat of 24%. I would like to return to that, with an ultimate goal of getting down to 120 with 21-22% body fat (athlete, I know). I want to look better/be more healthy. It is not because I think I am fat.

    I have gained weight, due to overeating and perhaps stress. I have been trying to lose it and I cannot seem to move any way but up. In fact, since initiating my weight loss efforts, I have gained 3 pounds! New muscle weight?

    I am VERY active. Since the time when I was 126, I swim 2 hours a week, do a spin class two hours a week, and am in a triathlon class that meets two hours a week alternating between swimming, running, and spinning. With all this exercise, I gained the 9 pounds to get to the 135 I am at now.

    For about a month, I have additionally added about 80 minutes of weight training a week to my above routine. And for the last week, I have been going additionally to the gym to run/elliptical/third session of weights for another five hours roughly. I am not exaggerating.

    So, obviously my exercise level sounds like athlete, thus, my weight loss problem has to be with my diet. I have binging (minus the purging) episodes where I can consume a full box of cereal for example. I have been trying to control this, and I do generally eat healthy (salads, fruits, etc.). I will admit, I could stand to eat more protein, with my current protein intake of things like lean steak/chicken being only about once or twice a week. Otherwise it is things like nuts, sandwich ham, soy milk etc.

    The thing that is getting me is that I have been recording meticulously my calorie intake- going so far as to measure the ounces of salad I am eating. I give myself a BMR of about 1400, 400 for misc daily activities (I'm a Starbucks barista which has a lot of standing and cleaning as I normally close the store, and walk a lot during the day, etc.) and whatever exercises I've done for the day.

    This last week, I have created roughly a deficit of 1000 calories a day. In five days, giving one day where I did not control how much I ate, I should have seen at least a .5 pound loss by now. Instead, the scale has remained stuck at 135.8. I drink plenty of water, only weigh myself in the mornings after the bathroom, and I have been to the doctor to check my thyroids (normal; performed because I thought even given bad diet my weight gain was uncharacteristic as is my seeming inability to lose anything).

    With all that information, any ideas on why I cannot seem to budge the scale?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not able to answer your question without more information, but I'll try to give you some pointers.

      For starters, I can pretty much chisel it in stone for you that the weight you have gained is muscle from working out. That is not (repeat, NOT) a bad thing. If you want to measure your results, measure your body fat percentage (and make sure whoever is measuring your body fat knows what they're doing -- most people don't measure body fat correctly or use those electronic scales that are VERY inaccurate).

      Secondly, a 1,000 calorie deficit for you is a VERY BAD IDEA. With your level of activity, your body could easily slip into starvation mode. When that happens, your body greedily hangs on to every last bit of body fat that you have and starts burning the tissue that requires the most calories to maintain -- MUSCLE. Not good. Try a 500 calorie deficit instead. You may also want to try "cycling," where you eat more one day and less the next (say, a 500 calorie deficit one day and a 300 calorie deficit on days where you work out a little more).

      Third, you don't indicate how often you eat. If you want to give your metabolism an extra kick, start off by eating breakfast within an hour of getting up, then eat small meals or snacks every 3 hours or so. If you eat too much at one sitting, your body stores the extra calories as fat. If you go too long between meals, your metabolism slows down. You can eat more for your morning meals/snacks, but try to taper it off so your smallest meals and snacks are the ones you have in the evening.

      Finally, you HAVE to look at nutrient ratios. If you want to lose the flab you'll need to eat more protein and more fat (yes, FAT!) Aim for an even three-way split between carbs, protein, and fat. If you're consuming 1,800 calories a day, that's 600 calories each, so about 150g of protein, 150g of carbs, and about 67g of fat. Best fat sources are: avocadoes, eggs, fish, fish oil, flax seed, flax seed oil, nuts (any kind), and olive oil.

      Good luck!

    this kind of weight loss cant be normal?
    i am a a serious athlete with a little bit of extra fat that i wanted to get rid of. last week i was 5' 8" and 145 pounds. so i went on a little bit of a diet, i cut out all my junk food and exercized extra hard! when i stepped on the scale today it read 140... i also noticed my pack is showing a lot more than last week. is that even possible?

    • ANSWER:
      5 lbs is rather alot for a petite person. But from what i've read weight loss in the beginning of any weightloss is fast and "furious". but hopefully you are still getting the caloric intake you are suppose to for your height and weight...dont go back to junk food. I'm an overweight woman and havent had junk food for months and i've gone down three pant sizes!! (i have never and will never own a scale, i measure my progress by what i can fit it LOL)...it helps that I'm now a vegetarian (5 mos. strong) and there is nothing available out there besides subways, and i dont consider that chain "junk food".

    How Am I Still Fat?!?
    I asked this question in the Diet and Fitness section and didn't get too much of a response... so I'm posting it here.

    I'm a 16 year old high school junior and I am very over weight! I'm 6'1" and 220 pounds!!! I know I'm tall, but that still doesn't explain my weight! I'm a very active athlete, which means I work out at LEAST 5 times a week! I play volleyball, basketball, and do track and field. Not to mention I march in the marching band which is incredibly physical! I'm very dedicated to my workouts, and I even do 100 crunches before I go to bed each night!

    I get that females are usually a little heavier than males, but I don't understand what's with me! My mother is 5'10" and when she was my age she was pretty thin. She's about 260lbs now. My dad is 6'7" and about 320lbs and has always been chunky. But once he started working out when he joined the military, he was incredibly skinny!

    I have a pretty back and forth eating pattern, like any other teeanage girl. I generally don't eat breakfast, its hard to fit in my schedule. My lunch is pretty average, if not a little large. And dinner is a maybe. Sometimes I eat it and sometimes I don't. I'm definitely a snacker. But all my friends and teammates do the same thing and they're in great shape!!! I'm physically fit, I just don't look the part!

    I don't want to try any radical "no eating at all" weight loss ideas, because I know those don't burrn fat, they burn muscle. And as an athlete I need all the muscle I can get! But I really want to lose at least 20 pounds before I go to prom this year in April!

    PLEASE HELP ME!!! :(

      Try doing running or swimming maybe biking, it seems like your gaining muscle not fat so try exercises that loose fat and don't gain any muscle such as running.

    Supplements to help in weight loss/muscle gain?
    Okay, here is the situation, sorry if it is so long. I was an athlete my whole life. Growing up and moving into the corporate world with odd hours and bad eating habits has caused me to lose some of my strength as well as overall fitness, and the sedentary part of my job has led to loss of muscle.

    I'm not fat or obese by any means. Weight wise I am where I want to be (6'0, 180#). However, I have some belly fat (not quite a full size spare tire, more like a donut), and don't have the upper body muscle I want.

    Overall I have a pretty normal physique, but it has never been what I want. Ideally I want to be able to lose the belly fat and increase my upper body mass/muscle, as well as in my legs (hamstrings, quads, and calves). My legs have always been somewhat muscular, but I've never had the chest to match.

    I am working on the diet portion, as well as cardio to help with the fitness. What I am asking is if there is anything else that will help me obtain my goals. I am limited in time I can devote to the gym, so anything that will help is appreciated.

    Timeless Workout Question?
    Timeless workout question

    So everyone knows that in order to lose weight you must be at a calorie-deficit.
    In order to gain weight (or muscle), you have to be at a calorie surplus while watching your nutrition.
    Your nutrition is a key factor in either scenario. Either way, my question is this:

    I do not know if this is a radical proposition. Or if perhaps it has been proposed before but consider this.
    Is it possible to 'flush' your system, therefore accomplishing muscle gain AND fat loss? By the statements

    What I mean is this. Working out very intensely (as a typical, competitive athlete/ P90X, etc). If you do this in the morning, it would help burn store fat if you do it before any meal. Let's say that you burn off 600 calories in your workout (3-5 miles depending on your metabolism and body). So you have already burned off stored fat that you want in essence. You keep living a good, healthly, active life. This helps you burn fat.
    Now, say that simultaneously you are shifting your diet to high-protein, reduced fat, and you are doing weight-training as well (gradually lifting more and increasing your stregth).

    So although you burned off an extra 600 calories because of your early workouts with cardio, you burned off fat.. later, however, you added them back on through protein and other low-fat foods.
    The overall calorie count may balance out or perhaps be a bit of a deficit or surplus. But regardless of the calorie count, you are burning fat and increasing your stregth, muscles, shape, and overall health. So if you disregard weight in this way, even if you put on a few extra pounds, you are realy putting on MUSCLE WEIGHT while BURNING. Even if you don't lose weight. Is this assumption correct?

    This is what I mean with "FLUSHING YOUR BODY". you replace the fat with muscle. Disregarding the weight that you gain or lose. :-)
    I know of a lot of people who try periods of burning fat and getting lean first (a few months or a couple of seasons) then dedicate to getting big.. but this method is rather similar. but rather than doing it in the span of seasons you are doing the same thing in the same week by incorporating cardio/aerobic exercise with weight training and 'bulking' up. Are there any inconsistensies with this theory?

    What most people want: Lose weight
    at the same time they want: gain Muscle
    Those are self-contradictory because of the calorie counts (one a deficit, the latter a surplus)
    But if people focus on LOSING FAT, and GAINING MUSCLE. It seems possible. Especially since keeping muslce helps burn fat.

    Thanks

  25. QUESTION:
    I want to stop doing this to myself, is it even normal? Can you relate at all?
    This is a re-post of the same question. Really feeling alone here...

    I'm not technically overweight, but I still feel fat.
    5'5", 135 lbs.
    I know this need to lose weight is only due to a desire to obtain a "perfect" body and due to the pressure of looking good for prom. I know that these reasons are typically [and accurately] described as stupid and vain. Even with this awareness, I don't want this weight.

    I know that there is a very high likeliness that I might binge after the temporary weight loss and gain lots of weight back and possibly more so. But, I feel that it will be worth it to look okay again. And through management of food proportions and exercise, I may in fact be able to keep the weight off and get my metabolism back to normal soon after.

    I was up to 160 lbs just a few years ago in Junior High and through healthy eating habits and obsessive exercise [which i hear can also be bad], I brought my weight down to125 lbs. Once the wrestling season at my high school ended, and I could no longer afford to pay for our cities' club soccer team, I realized that it was very difficult to leave my athletes diet behind for the normal, slightly lower calorie one. The extra ten lbs that I gained totally demolished my newly acquired confidence.

    I've been juice and water fasting for four days now [this is the morning of the fourth day]. Mostly just water though. I've E-educated myself on the effects of water and juice fasting, and have received the basic pro's and con's. However, I've been unable to find any information on combining any type of fasting, with diet pills.
    I received the pills from a friend, and I decided that I wanted to use them in concurrence with the fasting.

    I feel numb and tingly all of the time. My hands, face, on my tongue, et c. I have been frequently losing some function of my body parts upon standing, after sitting for longer than a few minutes. The numbness in my body increases, and my vision goes completely dark. My ears pop and it becomes very difficult to hear clearly. Sounds are muffled, even my own voice. Sometimes I only get the numbness and the ear thing, but when that happens I usually hear either a "wooshing" noise (like shores crashing on waves, only there is no line of demarcation between the breaks of the waves. It just keeps going. I have also heard a staticy noise, like that of a television with no cable, or the radio.
    The entire thing never lasts more than a few moments (except for occasionally the ear ringing), but in those moments I feel very dizzy and very heavy and am usually forced to sit down. I've noted that lowering my head relieves this discomfort.
    Sometimes i notice a slight discoloration in my hands. They get much darker.

    Throughout these four days I have slept once and I had to force myself. Even then it was from a little after 2 a.m. until almost five. The sleep was off and on. This is very unhealthy, and I assume it is an affect of the diet pill.

    As I am typing this, I am experiencing a heavy weight on my chest and am experiencing some slight difficulties breathing. I am laying flat on my back. Think I'm gonna move soon. o.o;

    Does anyone have any similar experiences, with any type of dieting/fasting/starvation?

    I'm a 16 year old female Junior. Don't accuse me of doing this to become sexy, or of being slutty. I'm a virgin in all aspects of the word and am saving myself for my husband.

  26. QUESTION:
    I haven't lost JACK. Is this a good workout and diet?
    I am a man, 41, athlete in hs and college. Been sedentary and ate horriblly for years. Still have a athletic build, just covered by goo. Previous: 241lbs. Ate 2X a day, big fatty meals like chili dogs, pizza, fast food, bar footd, whatever. Never worried about protein, carbs, fat, whatever. Half-ass workouts maybe 2X/week. For last 3 weeks, been an animal: Hard 45 minute workouts 5X/week, that mix muscle work and cardio. I am exhausted for the rest of the night.. Eating 6 small meals a day. Typical diet is protein mix, balance bar, fish, V-8 juice, protein mix, chicken, turkey. Coming in around 1000 calories/day. Shooting for .5g - .8g of protein per pound of bodyweight, so taking in between 120g and 192g protein/day. Even taking apple cider vinegar 3X/day. So, it's been 3 weeks now and I've lost a grand total of 3lbs. That's it? REALLY? I went from 2 big fatty meals a day to 6 smaller lean meals. And from 2 half-ass workouts to 5 bust-ass workouts a week. So, please, someone who knows this stuff, tell me: do I just need to give it more time? Or is something blocking my fat loss? I know it's not all about the scale, it's about how you look and feel, but I would have thought I'd see bigger losses in weight than that, just from the increase in metabolism of 6 meals versus 2 and the MASSIVE cut in fat. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    • ANSWER:
      Instead of measuring your progress in weight, I suggest you buy a tape measure and see it in inches.
      You could possibly have gained that much more muscle. As you gain more muscle, the fat will come off more easily because your body will learn to metabolize that stored fat.
      So keep it up and don't be disheartened because you don't see results right away. Keep at it and think of it as a lifestyle change. You're living a lot healthier, and sometimes that's enough-
      Best of luck!

    I am trying to lose weight and someone recommended that i take the following supplements. What do you think?
    I have drastically changed my diet and I am exercising 2 times a day, doing about 2 hours of cardio and a little bit of strength training. This is my 5th week and I have only lost about 6 pounds.

    L-Arginine - amino acid that helps your body get rid of ammonia and other wastes and helps with vasolidation
    CLA - supposed to change body composition by reducing fat and increasing lean muscle mass

  30. QUESTION:
    weight loss questions?
    I'm a 16 year old girl, about 5'3", weigh 129ish lbs, and I want to be around 115-120. I'm an athlete, but I play softball so practices and games aren't exactly vigorous workouts. I want to lose weight but I don't really want to be on "diet", I just want to eat healthier and workout more. So these are the questions I need answered.

    --About how many calories should I consume in a day? And is it okay that A LOT of the calories I take in are in sugar/carb form? I tend to turn to fruit for when I'm hungry because it doesn't have fat.

    --How much protein do I need in day? I basically just said in the first question that I'm afraid of fat, and I notice that protein and fat go hand-in-hand in a lot of protein rich foods like nuts, so are there other foods that have protein without much fat in them?

    --When people say not to drink soda, does diet soda count? I'm not addicted to it or anything like that but I usually have a diet A&W with dinner.

    --I also have tea twice a day and I don't wanna keep sweetening it with sugar or honey so is Splenda okay? I feel like 4 packets a day might be bad...

    --This is my most important question because I've read different things about it. Does long distance running (5+ miles) or cardio for an extended period of time (30+ minutes) burn muscle tissue? And if so, does it lessen your strength, or just make your muscles smaller? I know most girls don't want to be muscular, but I do for my performance in softball.

    Sorry for the long question but I just really need these things cleared up!! It's a lot so please answer whatever you can!!

    • ANSWER:
      1) A trick question. At least 1200 cal/day if you intend to lose weight strictly by fasting. Anything less than 1000 will certainly require you to metabolize protein (i.e., muscle) for energy. You won't have enough hustle though to stay on the softball team or pass algebra, though, if you cut more than 300-400 cal/day from your current consumption. Even then you'll be dragging your tail. Your best bet is to add an hour a day of strenuous aerobic exercise (ca. 80% max heart rate) and increase your consumption by about 300 cal/day. On balance you'll still be burning 300-400 cal/day more than you eat, but you won't feel hungry all the time, and you'll be in better condition mentally and physically, not worse, while you're losing the weight. Your choice. Look here:

      Estimating basal metabolic rate (BMR) is a dicey business, but here are some formulas from the literature:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basal_metabolic_rate#BMR_estimation_formulas

      Estimating calorie consumption during exercise is also dicey, but using METs helps a lot:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metabolic_equivalent

      2) It is NOT okay if a lot your calories are coming from simple sugars like sucrose, honey, fructose (from fruit), and corn syrup. When sugar levels in your blood rise, your pancreas releases insulin which increases the rate at which cells absorb sugar, and stimulates the conversion of that sugar into fat while inhibiting the use of fat for energy. Complex carbs have to be broken down into simple sugars before they can be absorbed, which takes time and results in a smaller increase in blood sugar levels and thus a smaller insulin spike, but in the end you still have excess sugar being stored as fat. If you want to lose fat, you've gotta keep the insulin level low, so if you've gotta eat carbs, eat complex carbs, and eat them in small portions as several meals over the course of the day.

      3) You need less than two ounces of protein a day. The US RDA is 0.8 g protein per kilogram of body weight, which is about 50g (or 1 2/3 oz). Calories are calories - fat calories are no worse than carb calories. Although restricting fat is best for cardiovascular health as you age, restricting carbs is best for losing weight, since it keeps insulin levels low.

      4) Splenda, aspartame, and other non-nutritive sweeteners don't count; eat as much of it as you like. Diet soda has no food value, either - drink as much diet A&W as you like. Every retail food product in the US and Europe has nutritional information, including calories, printed on the container. That can be helpful.

      5) It takes between 10 and 20 minutes for fat metabolism to ramp up, so consider 30 minutes a minimum aerobic workout if you want to burn fat - anything less than 20 minutes will simply cycle glycogen, which will leave you hungry and craving carbs (don't make me say insulin again!). Exercise does damage soft tissue, which requires replacement protein, but what's required to repair muscle fiber and connective tissue is only a fraction of the total protein requirement. Eat an extra 1/2 ounce of chicken, if you're worried.

    Help with 13 year old male weight loss!?
    hey everyone im a 13 year old male and i want to lose some weight in my torso and pecs. im 5'4 and 129 pounds. Overall i dont look all that fat, i just want to get rid of my manboobs and stomach fat. i want to lose it by the end of summer. what diet/workout do i need to follow? i am a big athlete i am a starter on my basketball team. but i just need to know how to lose this weight and tone up with no big gym or anything. please help. is this possible by the end of summer? (april 25)?? remember i mostley wanna lose manboobies. thanks everyone!

    • ANSWER:
      Doing a low carb way of eating, will lower your insulin and raise your testosterone & human growth hormone levels. Since you don't need to lose much I suggest that you just keep your carbs to 9 grams per hour. Hope this helps. (The boobs are the first to go in a woman at least lol). Make sure you build up your chest muscles.

      You will lose more body fat eating protein and fat (don't eat protein alone) than not eating AT ALL. To lose weight fast eat all you want but nothing but meat, eggs, healthy oils, mayo, butter and half an avocado a day (you'll need added potassium). Keep the calories high and the fat percentage high, at least 65% of calories. Adding in green vegetables & some cheese will continue weight loss but at a slower pace.

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

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

      Carbs are addictive and can be disastrous to our health. The best way to break the addiction is NO carbs for 3 days. Make a huge batch of deviled eggs and eat one every time you want "something" have huge omelets for breakfast, with bacon, a lil onion, peppers, mushrooms & cheese. Pork chops for lunch. Get pork rinds and eat them with tuna salad. Steak for dinner. Make a huge sugar free cheese cake for dessert. Eat so much you won't feel deprived of anything. By the fourth day, your addiction will be gone and you can start making healthy choices.

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

      Dr.Atkins was a cardiologist, low carb was a health plan easier sold as a "diet" Read any of his books for easily understandable science. Lutz "Life without Bread" & Taubes "Good calorie, bad calorie" are excellent books that dispel all the nutrition myths.

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

    Body Transformation Help! - Please take a look if you are a professional athlete, bodybuilder, trainer etc.?
    I'm 16 and am round 5'11" in height and 95kg in weight which is 209lbs. My body frame is quite big, and I don't look disgustingly big either, just... big. I am planning on going on an intensive diet plan and exercise plan over the summer. I will hit the gym every day and will stick to a diet. I hope to be cut and in excellent shape between June and September of this year. What kinds of food should I include in my diet (specific stuff... not "proteins, fibers... etc)? Should I don cardio before weight lifting or after? How much cardio and what kind is most efficient for fat loss?

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      You will want to consume meat high in protein. Liver, fish, peanuts, milk, eggs are high in Vitamin B3 (Niacin) and serves to help with DNA synthesis and energy production from carbohydrates. You will want to consume complex carbohydrates (beans, peanuts) which help with energy production and to stay away from the simple carbs (sugars, etc.) Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) helps with the metabolism of carbs and proteins and is involved in hormone production. Hormones are essential to body building as well. Foods high in Vitamin B5 are meats, wheat brans, broccoli, rice, and avocados.

      Now for the training: A simple rule to remember, You DO NOT want to go to the extremes of the fitness spectrum. If you are looking for the body builder look, you will want to do high impact, short circuit training that work your core muscles. Whereas if you are looking for the athletic look, you would do a lot of cardio and some core exercises. don't get me wrong, i'm not saying you shouldnt run a mile or so after you circuit train but trying to achieve the athletic look and body builder look at the same time can actually be detrimental to your body (your protein and carbohydrate synthesis will be totally screwed up). If you are looking for fat loss and muscle gain, do a lot of core training. Here is a list of the basic muscles that muscle fitness impacts:
      -Rectus Abdominis (Front Abdominal Muscles)
      -Obliques (Internal and External Muscles
      -Biceps (Upper Interior Arms)
      -Latissimus Dorsi (Back)
      -Trapezius (Neck and Upper Back)
      -Deltoids (Shoulders)
      -Pectoralis Major (Chest)
      -Pectoralis Minor (Chest)
      -Triceps (Exterior Upper Arms)
      -Anterior Deltoids (Front Shoulders)
      -Erector Spinae (Lower Back)
      -Gluteus Maximus, Medius, Minimus (Buttocks)
      -Transverse Abdominis (Deep Abdomens)
      -Rhomboids (Middle Back Muscle)
      -Posterior Deltoids (Rear Shoulders)
      -Forearm Flexors
      -Forearm Extensors
      -Hamstrings (Posterior Thigh Muscle)
      -Hip Flexors

      Hope this helps and good luck!

  34. QUESTION:
    Please help teenage diet questions?
    I am 14 years old. I used to eat whatever I wanted. (chips, fast food, and just junk food and such) I was still active because I am an athlete in track, and football. I also lifted weights, and ran a lot. So, a few months ago I started eating very healthy by eating only fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean meats. (with the exception of almond butter every morning on a banana for breakfast) I have still noticed no differences in my body through muscle growth, fat loss, nor just feeling healthier. What does this mean? Am I eating healthy for nothing?
    Sorry I didn't put a lot of details in the question. I am 5'10", 128 pounds, and very healthy already. I am not very worried about my weight, though i would like to lose 2-8 pounds to show my abs more. I am most considered with my weight gain. I am eating all the right food, the right protein, working out 4-5 times per week properly, but I am not overtraining. Why aren't I seeing growth?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, according to many dietary studies, meat isn't all that healthy. So, I would replace it with lentils, beans, peas, nuts, and seeds. But no, you aren't eating healthy for nothing. When you are older, you will be in much better health then if you ate unhealthily now. You will most likely age more gracefully and live longer.

    thank you so much!!

    • ANSWER:
      Weight loss is really quite simple; there are only two things you need do to reach your goals:

      1. Restrict daily calories to 1600 calories per day. By increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables you eat, you will be able to keep your intake at this level without feeling hungry or uncomfortable.

      2. Exercise for one hour a day, every single day. It can be anything from pilates to just plain walking, but do it. One hour. Every day.

      This is a pretty simple recipe for weight loss, but it works. It has worked for me; I have lost 62 pounds this way. It will work for you if you commit to it and stick to it.

      Good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      I would try this workout. At the same time you will be gaining muscule and burning fat. So its awesome.

      WHAT YOU'LL NEED: Two 5 pounds weights.
      * means one 5 pound weight in each hand.

      If you don't have two 5 pound weights try using water bottles full of water.

      Workout:
      Stretch
      *20 Bench Press x3
      20 squats x3
      *20 side arm lifts x3
      20 crunches x3
      20 push-ups x3
      *20 lunges x3
      20 leg lifts x3
      Walk for 30 mins
      Stretch

      Stretching before your workout helps you not to pull a muscule during your workout.

      Stretching after your workout helps you not be AS sore afterward.

      I try to do this everyday, but I'm sure you would get results doing this only 2-4 days a week. I recomend everyday.

      Eat 1500 calories a day and drink 8 glasses of water daily.

      You will lose weight and tone up!

      I've lost 6 pounds and I've only been doing it for a week!

      You can do it! i know you can!

      You will be sore. and it will hurt but you can do it.

      Don't be scared to add more excercises of more reps.

    Will I still have any problems from pcos after weight loss?
    I was always very big, but when I was 15 I was 5'7" and weighed about 240 pounds (massive I know!).
    At this time my doctor diagnosed me with pcos because I had not had a period in several months.

    But within 2 weeks of this diagnosis I had lost about 8 pounds and got my period again.

    I am now 17, 5'7", weigh 172 pounds with a body fat percentage of between 21% and 25% (this is healthy, but aiming to still decrease it).
    I converted to a very healthy vegan diet, I work out everyday, both cardio and strength exercises, I drink 2 liters of water a day.
    Plus I am in ideal health, blood pressure and heart rate of a top athlete, low cholesterol, perfect results from a recent blood test.

    I now have a very regular period, it never hurts and all seems to be working fine.

    But could the condition still cause problems in the future?
    Would it have effected my fertility?
    I have done lots and lots of research into nutirition, no way am I going to go anywhere near eggs so you are wasting your time!
    But I agree with the thing about soy, I always avoid that, plenty of nuts and seeds. I have had blood tests done and all the results have come back ideal.
    I have a healthy pretty much constant level of glucose, really no problems there.

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest you ask these questions on a PCOS forum - link below.

      PCOS is correlated to insulin resistance. I'm betting high insulin levels create PCOS. When you are insulin resistant, the insulin receptors on muscle tissues "burn out" & all the calories go directly to fat cells. Exercise forces muscles to take up glucose without insulin.

      I don't believe insulin resistance is reversible but it can be easily managed with a low carb way of eating. Unfortunately a vegan diet is usually a very high carb way of eating. This will not be as apparent now while you are still a teenager & active. Exercise will control your blood glucose but it doesn't fix the insulin problem that is triggered in response to a high carb diet.

      High insulin levels unbalance all other hormone, including the sex hormones & human growth hormone.

      It's very hard to maintain weight on a vegetarian diet unless it's extremely low calories. It's almost impossible to lose weight even with low calories. Excess fat accumulation is a symptom of a hormonal problem caused by excess carbs triggering excess insulin. The blood stream needs to be free of insulin before fat will be released.

      I'm not trying to convert anyone to being a meat eater only health conscious. Starches, sugar, fruit do not promote weight loss, they do promote weight gain. As a vegetarian you need to be vigilant to meeting your protein requirements. I have major concerns about soy products effecting thyroid health. If you could add eggs to your diet, that would solve a multitude of problems.

      I would suggest you convert your diet to more of a fat based (mainly coconut oil & olive oil) diet with much more low glycemic vegetables. Stay vigilant about meeting your protein requirements but try to keep your carbs <9grams per hour. I would suggest not eating many starches that don't significantly contribute to protein requirements. Significantly increase your consumption of nuts (peanuts are a legume not a nut - peanuts are fine, just realize the difference), flax seeds, chia seeds, spirulina.

      Carbohydrates (sugar, flour, bread, cereal, pasta, potatoes, rice, beans) trigger insulin (the ONLY fat storage hormone). Protein triggers the fat burning hormone glucagon.

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

      You have chosen a way of eating that needs you to know a great deal about nutrition and how the body processes foods. I wouldn't try to dissuade you but encourage you to educate yourself fully. Weight gain is a symptom of a problem, not the problem.

      I would highly suggest chia seeds - 3.5 oz is nearly 500 calories, half calories from fat (high in Omega3 fatty acids) & 16grams of COMPLETE protein for 6grams carbs & 63% DV Calcium - 95% Phosphorus - 23% Zinc - 9% Copper - 108% Manganese.

      Spirulina & chlorella are also good complete vegetarian protein sources.

  40. QUESTION:
    A Model Seeking Nutritional Dieting Advice?
    I am a contracted model seeking a new diet plan.

    As an athlete, I know how to diet and how to maintain full body health, however, an agency that I have recently contracted with in encouraging a diet that I feel is not healthy for my body. I am 18 years old, 6'0 tall, and weigh 145 lbs...My goal is to lose a combined weight of 10 to 15 pounds in fat and muscle.

    With a diet, I would like to avoid muscle build, encourage weight loss and skin elasticity, and maintain a clear complexion as much as possible. As of right now, I am at a healthy civilian weight, but business calls and according to the industry I am 10-15 lbs overweight and am too toned (muscular).

    I do excersize 2 hours every day, seven days a week:

    1. Run 5 Miles
    2. Leg Press 3 sets of 30 reps 110 lbs.
    3. Tricept Pulley 3 sets of 25 reps 65 lbs.
    4. Abdominal Crunches 3 sets of 60 reps 90 lbs.
    5. 2 Miles on Cycle

    Help would be greatly appreciated!,

    Thank you,

    -Marley

    • ANSWER:
      Well since you say you're a model ,10 lbs would be very good to lose but i guess u shouldn't lose more than 132...cause ur 6 feet after all,should u ever become ill or stuff u wouldn't have reserve left. (:

      U should know that doing 2 hours per day of exercise is healthy but it adds muscle ,at least at first in the first two-three weeks then u start losing fat.But anyways u will lose weight with that.

      Eliminate from ur diet : sweets (including jam),any drinks other than water/tea,butter,pork meat or any meat other than chicken fish and turkey. Don't eat foods cooked with oil,and give up potatoes(doesn't matter how they're cooked) or eat max 1-2 a week.

      Only eat three meals a day and u can have a snack but let it be only fruit. No eating between meals.
      Also try not to drop under 1270 cals a day.Trust me.

      Good luck! (:

  44. QUESTION:
    Must lose as near to 50lb as possible in 7 weeks! Possible?
    Hello you lovely helpful people... I am hoping to attract the attention of any personal trainers, nutritionist, sport scientist, athletes - or anyone else out there who has a tried and tested method to get results - I hate to say it but - FAST....

    I know I know, everyone asks the same questions and I used to look and laugh... it's easy, eat less and exercise more... but I didn't see what the hurry was for all these people?! Impatience? I knew I was eating too much, overworking myself to exhaustion, no time for exercise and binge eating carbs and chocolate etc to boost my mood and keep me from depression :-( I have been completely in denial about the fact that my own body shape has taken a severe turn for the worse. I had wanted to lose weight to improve self confidence and instead, stressful living and working conditions, illness and emotional issues have caused me to comfort eat and actually gain weight. so much FAT on my tummy, and face, and well... everywhere :-(

    I am around 5ft 2 or 3 inches and I weigh just under 11 stones now... I am lucky, in that my weight is quite well distributed, and I still have somewhat of a figure (hourglass) but I am really not in great shape for a twenty year old.

    I need serious help. I know how to eat healthily, but am vegetarian and so anyone giving diet advice please take that into consideration. I will however eat fish!! Like I said I used to laugh when I saw people trying to lose huge amounts in short time periods, and whilst I understand the importance of healthy weight loss etc etc. I discovered yesterday that something is coming up that I simply MUST look my best for... yes I want to be a size 8 longer term, because with my height and frame I should be!!! But I am willing to be realistic. I have 7 weeks exactly people, and like I said am willing to do whatever it takes.

    This past week I have cut coffee, black teas, dairy, and gluten out of my diet almost entirely, sweetened things minimally, eaten salad, veg, fruit, nuts, seeds, fish and eggs. I have dratically reduced portion sizes and have been trying to drink more water, although some has been hot water with fresh lemon and or ginger.

    I have a gym membership which I have not had time to use, but finally leaving one of my jobs (Has been 60 hrs a week on top of my 25hr pw admin job!) and I seriously intend to utilise it. Considering maybe going to top personal training duo: Paul Ellis and Tim Stockwell... but that wil cost me £1400 for 3 90min sessions per week. Is it necessary?? Cause I simply NEED to see results by mid April people... please please please help me out. I would be like the dream client for a dietitian/personal trainer right now as I am so so so determined to do this... just need some tip top guidance.

    Someone recommended HCG spray??

    I just need a serious regime, and a way to boost metabolism and eat a minimum number of calories whilst still making sure to get all the nutrition that my body will need to get me through intense exercise.I really am seriously dedicated and willing to do whatever it takes to lose as much weight as possible in these 7 weeks (and beyond!!) :-) )))

    THANK YOU so much to anybody who has taken the time to read, and a million times more to anyone that can help or give me advice.

    Much love, sweat and tears ;-)

    Harri xx

    • ANSWER:
      The most important thing to remember is that to lose weight you must burn more calories than you consume. You say that you have a Gym membership but have not had time to use it... Consider that you need to MAKE time to exercise if you are serious about losing weight.

      Let me say, losing 50 lbs in less than 2 months is VERY unhealthy, and it is an unrealistic goal.

      My recommendation is to do jogging (or brisk walking) for 20 or more minutes a day 4-5 days a week. If you currently do not work out regularly, this will give you a great start. You want to feel the burn in your legs, push yourself... If you maintain this, start to step up the duration of your walking. It is important to remember not to EVER skip this routine, it needs to be constant. Walking/jogging/running will help you burn calories and improve your metabolism.
      Eat less than you normally do, but make sure you eat enough to satisfy yourself. Incorporate treats for yourself into your diet too... for example: if you love chocolate and eat it all of the time, remove it from your regular diet but still treat yourself... you want to avoid having intense cravings that cause you to binge eat.

      Good luck

I would be like the dream client for a dietitian/personal trainer right now as I am so so so determined to do this... just need some tip top guidance.

    Someone recommended HCG spray??

    I just need a serious regime, and a way to boost metabolism and eat a minimum number of calories whilst still making sure to get all the nutrition that my body will need to get me through intense exercise.

    THANK YOU so much to anybody who has taken the time to read, and a million times more to anyone that can help or give me advice.

    Much love, sweat and tears ;-)

    • ANSWER:
      For starters, stay away from the hcg spray. There is little to no hcg hormone in 99.9% of this stuff.
      It was just announced as illegal and fraudulent in the States.

      Bottom line is I did the calculations and I think there about 1700 calories in a kilo?
      No pill is going to make you lose any weight. It is all hype.
      You can do it IF, you stick to a diet of 1200 healthy calories per day and exercise hard for one and one half hours per day. Take one day a week off and just do a 30 minute brisk walk to stretch out.
      Two kilos per week and you will just make it.
      Lots of water with a bit of lemon, occasionally a shot of orange juice.
      Green tea is fine and is a good antioxidant. Helps boost the metabolism.
      Search foods that increase metabolism and eat those within your 1200 calorie limit. Do not eat less than 1200 or your body will go into starvation mode and hold on to fat.
      You can do this. Good luck.

  46. QUESTION:
    Could I be retaining water? Or why can't I lose weight?
    I've completely revamped my diet over the past six months and have been exercising for a year, and while I have gone down a couple of waist sizes, it's not as dramatic a loss as the level of workout I do suggest. (I was a former NCAA athlete, so know how to work out properly.)

    For example, I can do a routine of 200 pushups in sets of 80/65/55, lots of crunches, squats, etc., every other day but still weigh 200 pounds after all this time (I should be 180 or so). My typical caloric intake is under 2000. I do some aerobic activity. Nothing seems to make a dent in my total weight.

    I did up my water intake dramatically, added many more fibers, and cut out caffeine (coffee and caffeinated sodas).

    My energy levels are OK. My only remaining theory as to why I'm not really losing weight is water retention.

    (I know the "muscle weighs more than fat" argument, but don't think that's just it.)

    Any other ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      Cardio, cardio, cardio. As much as I hate to admit it, it's the only way to get your weight to budge. The push-ups and sit-up will help to tone those target areas, however, it's the cardio that burns the calories and burning calories is the key. On the days you aren't doing your calisthenics, do 20 to 30 minutes of biking, running, swimming, elliptical or StairMaster. Some days, I wish I could just take a pill instead....

  47. QUESTION:
    Is a six pack an unrealistic goal to maintain?
    Do you think a six pack is an unrealistic goal to maintain? This article pretty much claim keeping one year round is unrealistic. Do you agree? Disagree?

    --quote--
    Attaining those 'six-pack' abs is only half the battle

    For the first half of 2009, Jason Dinant morphed into a gym rat. He worked out four times a week in a gym cycling on a stationary bike, lifting dumbbells and doing hundreds of sit-ups to attain his New Year's resolution of having "six-pack" abs.

    He ditched the junk food and scarfed down 16 hard-boiled egg whites, one and a quarter pound of meat and four cups of vegetables a day.

    After six months of diet and workouts with a trainer, the fruits of his labor surfaced from his stomach in June. He got his six-pack.

    But months later, reality set in. After relaxing his diet and fitness routine, Dinant's six-pack whittled down to a two-pack.

    "I got worn out from working out and took a break from it," said the 28-year-old.

    Six-packs are difficult to maintain because they require less than 10 percent body fat, said Jordan Yuam, a fitness trainer and owner of Jordan's Virtual Fit Club in Valencia, California, who was not associated with Dinant's fitness.

    "It's really, really hard to keep that up," said Yuam, who trained "Twilight" actor Taylor Lautner.

    "Most people, in terms of bodybuilding or any kind of figure modeling, they have something called off-season training. They're going to look best during competition time. People don't realize there's two different worlds of the human body that you generally don't see when they're in magazines. They think they look like that year-round -- it's not true."

    Even bodybuilders need a break from the intense workouts. And Dinant plans to follow that route.

    "I have friends who are bodybuilders," said the Las Vegas, Nevada, resident. "Two months before competition, they're in competition mode. Then they relax, then go back to competition mode. They don't put stress on the body 24/7. They regulate it for certain things. I found that's the best thing for me. I still do my ab routine. I'm not as strict though."

    Switching between intense and moderate training is not harmful, because the body needs a break, Yuam said.

    "It's like an Ironman athlete," he said. "There are times you're working out really hard, and you cool down and rest and go back at it."

    Dinant was one of the contributors chosen last January when CNNhealth.com asked viewers to submit their 2009 New Year's resolutions and chronicle their journey to change on iReport.com.

    His public quest for a six-pack also landed him a spot on the New York City Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride March in June. That afternoon, after parading around shirtless and flaunting his newly sculpted stomach, he felt a pang.

    As the festivities wrapped up, Dinant dashed across the street to sink his teeth into a footlong sausage sandwich sold by a street vendor. He also wolfed down a pastry. "Then I got a stomachache," Dinant said.

    But Dinant is not mourning the loss of his six-pack.

    "I eat a lot more vegetables than I ever did," he said. "I still eat zucchini and rice. It makes you feel better. ... I do feel like it was the best thing I've ever done. I'm happy I went that course this year."

    He credits this year's fitness resolution for getting him healthier.

    "I find that there's a happy medium for me," Dinant said. "I eat healthier. I'm happier. I'm at the shape I'm happy at."

    Despite the bevy of taut and toned bodies on magazine covers, better body self-image is important, said Yuam.

    "People need to realize you can't look like that year-round. The magazines and their covers, they're all 'Photoshopped.' That's not what they look like. Acceptance is something that people don't understand."

    While six-packs are possible to build in several months, Yuam cautioned that the feature doesn't serve any health function.

    "It's more for show. It's a cosmetic thing," he said.

    But for those who seek tighter abs, here are more of Yuam's tips:

    -- Diet is a big part of the battle. Avoid starchy carbohydrates before going to bed. Incorporate good fats such as avocado and olive oil into the diet. Eat frequent, small meals.

    -- When picking food, go the caveman route. Does this product occur in nature or come from trees? If not, try to avoid it.

    -- Most people spend pointless hours in the gym, because they are not following proper technique. When people work on their torso, they may be swinging too much or using too much momentum. "It's not a race," Yuam said. "You want to feel them, doing 15 minutes the right way, that's equivalent to doing an hour the wrong way."

    -- Work on your abs every other day, because overworking your abs won't give you results. "There has to be time for recovery for the muscles to come in," he said

    • ANSWER:
      It can be because you have to maintain a low percentage of body fat. This is easier for some people to do than others. People with ectomorphic or mesomorphic body types and fast metabolisms would have an easier time keeping their body fat low enough to see their abs compared to people with endomorphic body types and slow metabolisms. So it really depends on the individual.

  48. QUESTION:
    Pasta and those last 10 lbs?
    Hey guys, I need some people with experience to settle my inner conundrum

    I am 24, 5'2" and 120 lbs. While in a 'healthy' weight range, my lifestyle is sedentary with an extremely demanding desk job--meaning that a lot of the muscle I built up in my days as a high-school athlete has now turned to unattractive jell-o. I would like to lose 5-10lbs.

    I do not get much time to work out, but I will be doing my best to steal 30 minutes during each day to get some cardio in (I used to run 'cardio kickboxing' classes when I was 16, so I will likely do these routines before or after work).

    I know that my diet is a bit...weird. I actually looked at my diet first, counted calories to see if I could afford to cut out a lot, and it turns out I can't. I figured out that on some really busy days, I was only eating about 600 calories of food! Even on the weekends, I'd only manage to consume about 1500 calories unless I went out somewhere fancy to eat (which is almost never, and wouldn't be good calories anyway).

    The way that I do it I guess is that I eat a lot of complex carbs in the form of whole grains which I've read suppresses your appetite. I don't eat when I'm not hungry. My breakfast is 1/2 cup of oatmeal (not the instant kind, the 'real' kind). For lunch--I'm usually so busy that I skip, but I almost always fit in some Stonyfield Farms yogurt. For dinner, 1 cup (dry) whole-wheat pasta with marinara. Its literally the same every day. Once a week I eat a can of Tuna...I'd love to get some more lean meats in there but I don't have the time to cook it nor do I have the money to go out and buy something pre-cooked! For a snack it's either some plain nacho chips and regular old salsa, or some pretzels, or those 100 calorie baggies of popcorn. Carb city!

    The oatmeal and the pasta are my vices. I've heard a lot of weight-loss stories that began and ended with 'oh I just stopped eating pasta!' How realistic is this if I only eat relatively small portions? I don't have the time to exercise AND cook...I'd like to take the free time I have and use it to exercise since I fear what sitting around is doing for my leg circulation (and cholesterol!). If my calculated BMR is only around 1350 calories (because I sit...all day) and I usually consume less than that, will I notice a huge difference by cutting out the pasta and substituting with meats, which seems like it would be substituting carbs for fat?
    Thank you, Minty! I was shocked when I realized I should be eating MORE!! For example yesterday--oatmeal @ 200 calories (i add a small bit of brown sugar), pasta @ 400 calories (since I eat about double the serving size) and yogurt @ 130 calories. Then I splurged on two of the 100-cal bags of popcorn after dinner...200+400+130+100+100 = 930 calories! I try to think of what else I can possibly eat but...I can't think of anything! I'd feel like I was cramming my face and overeating!!!

  50. QUESTION:
    I need someone with medical understanding.?
    I am a 35 year old male. 6’1 320 lb… Married and a father of two children… I am sick almost all the time. Into my mid 20s I was an athlete. When I had an injury that the doctors called a soft tissue injury of the ankle… They treated this by throwing pain killers at me for 7 years until I saw a specialist who told me it was in fact acute gout. I was told additionally I have a genetic condition called hyperlipidima my body naturally makes to many lipids. I was told they were over 10,000. Needless to say they were amazed I was alive. I have normal to low blood pressure. My cholesterol was 280…and is now 200. last time I had it checked. I have an uncler where my esophagus meets my stomach. They gave me a generic form of nexium to fix it. And it did from what I can tell.
    I have this wonderful pain in my abdomen like all my organs get swollen and I also at that time double over in pain from cramps, as well as excessive gas and belching some kind of sulfur smelling something… It makes me vomit and have diarrhea to the point I lay on the bathroom floor and just hope if I was to fall asleep I would not wake up. I am tired, angry, cranky, depressed, and at a total loss. I talk to the doctor who tells me to losse weight. So, I try and well when I move it feels like 10000000 pins are slamming through my ankle so exercise is not easy. I can’t swim because I live in a cold weather region. I break bikes…flat out. I have lost 30 lb by diet modification. I cut out sugar and soda. I eat more veggies and less fats and red meat. Mostly because if I don’t I get a massive wave of pain from eating that stuff. I don’t sleep well… I have trouble breathing….I can’t stand for more then 2o min at a time…and if I do I can’t move for 3 days unless u take 800 mg anti-inflammation drugs. I have uric acid deposits in my feet. I take alloperinol for that when I can afford it. I can’t do this anymore. This needs to get fixed or I am a dead man. Oh and I have kidney stones…too…weee.

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like you've taken the first step with your diet modifications. My experience with exercising while injured is that a recumbent bike at a commercial gym is the only way to go to start. If you have your doctor order it, the gym membership may be covered by insurance or at least tax deductible.

      For me, it was overwhelming looking at how much had to happen for me to get better. It wasn't just the weight loss. It was the illnesses and surgeries, etc. It just seemed hopeless. I was reminded that you eat an elephant one day at a time. All I had to do was show up every morning at the gym regardless of how I felt and just do SOMETHING! I felt better mentally but not physically for a while.

      The stomach stuff was paralyzing at times. I worked with a great gastroenterologist who did exploratory surgery and found my bowel had migrated over to the left side and was twisting on itself. I had to be persistent though. It took over a year to get that resolved.

      Had to have knees replaced. One was put in wrong and was replaced again. Then it was the shoulder. Then carpal tunnel. Now it's ankle fusion. (you might want to look into that)

      My point is, as long as you are doing something to try to make yourself better every single day, then you are fighting the good fight. Don't quit! Yes, I know it's painful and everyday won't feel like a good one, but just hang in there. One day at a time. I have to stay away from the pain meds too because of depression. That really sucks sometimes.

      I think you really want to get better or you wouldn't have changed your diet. Set another goal. A reasonable one. And make a move toward it. Sometimes it seems like two steps forward and one step back but that's better than the alternative.

      I wish you all the best!
