Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Michael asks…

Im doing an online weight loss calculator, and they asked me to write in my Daily calorie differential?

I plan on eating only 500 cals a day, so what would make my daily calorie differential be?

weight loss cardiff answers:

To calculate your daily calorie differential you first need your BMR ( a calculator has been provided below in sources.) The BMR is about how many calories you would burn doing nothing all day.

Next you need how many calories you burn through exercise, (second link under sources, used to calculate how many calories burned through various exercises, based off weight and minutes done exercising).

And you wanted to cut down to 500 calories, (Eating this few calories a day could be very unhealthy and you will see limited gains because you need to lose weight slowly if you really want to keep it off!) I have included a third calculator that tells you how many calories you should eat if you want to lose x number of pounds per week.

Finally to figure out your daily calorie differential you would plug your numbers into the following equation:

Calories Consumed – (BMR + exercise) = Differential.

If your BMR and exercise combined is larger than your calories consumed the differential should be a negative value, thus you will need to draw energy from fat reserves and some muscle, and lose weight.

This should be done in the conjunction of eating smaller healthier meals 5-6 per day, (if you eat all your calories from fat or high carbohydrates results will be limited.) Eating more meals will keep your metabolism constantly going!

Good luck at meeting your goals.

Lisa asks…

Anyone know of a good weight loss calculator?

I need one tha will allow me to put in how many pounds i will be losing each week or how many calories im consuming. I want to see how long this will take me.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Dont believe in those stuff. The best ways to see your improvement are:
1. See yourself in a mirror if things have improved.
2. Compare your pictures before and after
3. Feel if your pants, blouses, undies, and bra make a difference.
4. Use tape measure on your waisteline
5. Use weighing scale (not at all times because muscles are more densed than fat)
goodluck Lebs.

Diet FOODS????

I’m on a summer diet and am pretty overweight. I plan on running/walking on the tredmill everyday for at least an hour. I have no way of doing strength training. So, what are some good foods to eat for my diet. I hate salad and most veggies. Green tea? Well, thanks!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Well… Without veggies, it’s a lot harder to diet… I’d suggest trying cooked veggies (I’m a big fan of stir-fried veggies, and if you add some meat to it it’s basically a full meal)–the trick with stir-fries is to add lots of seasoning.

As an example, slice up some onions, zucchini, and sweet peppers… Saute the onions in a bit of oil or some chicken stock until they’re soft, then add the zucchini and saute that for a bit, and then toss in the peppers and cook them just a bit to heat them through. Then squeeze a little lemon juice over the whole thing and sprinkle a dash of red chili flakes overtop… Stir to make sure everything’s combined and serve. This one’s good with just about any type of meat, but I serve it with salmon or grilled chicken most often.

I’d also stock up on fat-free yogurt, ’cause that’s a really good alternative to sugary, fat-filled desserts, and since it has protein it’ll fill you up too.

Good to see you have your exercise schedule down! If you can, doing some simple resistance exercises would help accelerate your weight loss, but if you have some reason that you can’t do any strength/resistance training then stick to cardio.

Good luck!

(Oh, and yeah, drinking tea is good for you, since it’ll help hydrate you, and that often helps a little in losing weight ’cause your body will stop storing water… Just make sure you drink caffiene-free tea before going to bed!)

Thomas asks…

What are good diet foods to take to a barbecue?

My friends are having a get together this weekend and they just recently went on a diet. I want to take some food but don’t want to interrupt their diet. Any suggestions on what diet foods I can take.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Chicken is very low in fat, just marinade it the day before and leave in fridge until you leave for BBQ. Fish and shelfish are great BBQ’d, especially things like mackerel and prawns as they are very tasty and low in fat. You could make vegetable kebabs with onions, mushrooms, peppers and tomato’s take corn on the cobs to bbq, make a salad……

Michael asks…

How to prepare and cook the 3 day diet foods?

I found the 3 day diet foods recipe, but was wondering if I choose to drink tea, what kind of tea do I have to drink?
As for the vegetables are they suppose to be steamed?
For the toast, what kind of toast does it have to be?
Then for the tuna and other meat, can it be grilled or boiled?
What kind of melon am I suppose to eat?
Lastly, do I need to exercise with this?

Please no advertisements.

weight loss cardiff answers:

I’ve done the 3 day diet.

You can drink any tea you want, just don’t add milk, cream or sugar.

The vegetables should be cooked without any butter or oils – steaming is the best, or you can eat them raw if you want.

It can be any kind of toast – rye, whole wheat, 7 grain are the healthiest instead of white bread.

Tuna – you can eat canned tuna if you want instead of a tuna fillet that has to be cooked. The frankfurter can be boiled or baked, it doesn’t matter, as long as none of the meat is fried you can cook them any other way you want.

Canteloupe melon is the best to eat on this diet, but you can have watermelon or honeydew melon if you don’t like canteloupe.

You should exercise a little – go for a nice walk each day, but it is not necessary – you eat so little food on this diet that you are guaranteed to lose at least a couple of pounds even without exercising.

Mark asks…

How fast can you lose weight without it being unhealthy?

This winter break, I am planning on making a strong effort to lose weight. For all who are wondering, the break will be 6 weeks long.

Here is what I am planning to do:
-Eat a very reasonable diet.
-Take protein supplements.
-Drink lots of water.
-Ride my bike for an hour or two a day.
-Go to the gym Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and do some anaerobic exercise to build lean muscle.

Would this be unhealthy? I have a feeling I will lose weight rather quickly, but a friend told me that losing weight fast is almost as unhealthy as being overweight in the first place. Is my plan unreasonable?


weight loss cardiff answers:

Start doing that before the break, start out slow, it will take a while for your body to get accustomed to all the changes. Starving yourself is just as bad as burning off all the calories you ate that day, just make sure you get 1200 calories a day, and ride your bike for an hour maybe, two seems a bit extreme for now, especially if you’re coming out of an inactive lifestyle. Your friend is right, just don’t go overboard with the exercising. If your body goes into starvation mode you could easily gain all the weight back as fast as you lost it. Good luck!

John asks…

How can you lose weight fast and healthy?

I have tried to lose weight before a few times, and it never works for me like at all. I don’t know what to do, but I want to lose weight fast, and healthy. I wanna lose like a lot of weight in a few months because I am fat and I am impatient.Does anyone have ideas or tips?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Studies prove that people who lose weight quickly are more likely to gain it back.

It shocks your body, and it can screw up your metabolism permanently to make gaining weight easier and losing weight harder… Giving you something to struggle with all of your life.

If you make “fast” a more important factor than “permanent,” you are going to screw yourself badly.

Losing weight is more of a mental battle than a physical one. If you really want to be successful, you have to battle your impatience before you can change your habits.

And fact is, the only way to lose weight and keep it off is to change your habits— forever. To learn to make better choices about exercising and eating healthier. Because if you ever change back to your old habits, your cells will gladly gain all that weight back.

So what does it matter how long it takes? As long as you change your lifestyle to healthier habits, you will take it off and keep it off.

Steven asks…

easy to follow weight loss plans for busy people?

I’ve lost a few pounds and feel I’m stuck at my weight now and can’t lose anymore. I work 12-14 hr shifts so it’s sometimes hard to cook a healthy meal or workout the days I work. I do get alot of fast food, but I’ve changed mostly to ordering salads or subway. Does anyone have any suggestions for fast healthy meals that I can make quickly and that will be good for work to? Good workout routines if you only have 3 days a week to work out?
BTW…I’ve lost almost 15 lbs. in 2.5 months just by swiching to salads when getting fast food and subway.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Wow, what do you do for a living? My best suggestion is to, on one of your days off, to go nuts with cooking stuff you can reheat later on, like soups to freeze, cold roast meats, spaghetti, etc. You could also take those things to work. If all else fails, just have a huge salad on standby when you get home and add a small can of flavoured tuna.
How long do you have on those 3 days where you can work out? It’d be a good idea to join a gym and get a personal trainer to tailor a program for you to optimise weight loss. If you can’t get to a gym, buy a cheap cross trainer, a jump rope and some light weights so you can work out at home.

easy weight loss plan?

i am 12, weigh 150, am 5 foot 3. What can i do to lose weight fast so that kids at school don’t tease me any more?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Hi! Okay, here is a good plan. I suggest it to everyone because it’s not scary, strict, difficult, or dangerous. It helps you lose weight at a good pace and become more fit and healthy.

1. Find out how many calories your body currently burns on a daily basis/how many it needs.Using the calculator on and assuming that you are FEMALE, I found that you burn 1456 calories a day without doing anything. You should probably do a 500 calorie deficit, so subtract 500 and you get 956 calories. You should have between 956 and 1056 daily.
2. Start exercising. Go on a 20-30 minute brisk walk every day. Do 30 sit-ups. Do 20 push ups.
3. Eat organic foods, eat high protein, don’t eat any wheat products.
4. Drink a minumum of 5 water bottles a day.
5. Talk a multivitamin, calcium, and Omega-3 Fatty Acids. They’re good for fat burn.
6. Snack on veggies and fruits… More veggies, though, because fruit has lots of sugar.

Hope this helps!
