Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

John asks…

How old must you be to purchase weight loss pills?

How old must u be in the UK to start taking weight loss pills? Are they effective ? What are the side effects? Must they be proscribed? Where can I get them at there cheapest ?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Beware – a lot of the so called weight loss pills just don’t work.
They cost a lot of money and you don’t get your money back.
Most of them state they will assist weight loss as part of a diet and exercise programme.
You can lose weight and tone up without them. It will be so much healthier and long lasting.
If you REALLY need pills then Alli is one that will help rid fat and Hoodia takes the edge off your appetite.
It is a lot cheaper to adjust your diet and exercise though.

Laura asks…

What are the best pills for weight loss?

Im not old enough to buy prescription pills so I have to buy pills that people anyone under 18 can buy.
so i was wondering what are the best weight loss pills that i can buy from drug stores? Walmart/Walgreens?

weight loss cardiff answers:

You have to be 18 to legally buy diet pills. It’s federal law.

Ruth asks…

Are there any weight loss pills that work and are not a scam?

Seriously, are there weight loss pills out there that really work and are not just some big scam?

weight loss cardiff answers:

No, they all are scams.

Weight loss is 90% diet.
You can lose weight without exercise, starts and ends in your kitchen.

Why don’t you wanna do it?
Eat less and eliminate the high calorie foods.

Thomas asks…

fast and easy weight loss plan?

I’m 14 years old, 5’4 and weigh 143 lbs. I’m a cheerleader so I’m active about 3-4 times a week. i need a fast and diet plan before school starts which is in 3 weeks. please tell me how fast it will work. oh and how many calories should i have each day to accomplish the diet for a girl my age. please help me

weight loss cardiff answers:

Eat smaller portions. This way, your body starts to increase its metabolism so that calories are burned faster. Also, small meals can prevent overeating.
Stop eating just when you feel you are not as hungry, don’t keep on eating till you feel full

Plenty of Cucumbers: it takes more calories to digest cucumbers than the calories you can obtain from it, it also give you clean, easy way of filling full.
Grapefruit juice: when eaten with protein, triggers fat burning and causes weight loss.


Believe in a target weight you want to achieve and weigh yourself twice a day, be encouraged from the progress.

Set a daily goal for 1 Pound or 2 you want to loose. When you do not achieve your daily goal, just eat way less at that day just to keep the same paste of weight loosing.


Start the diet at the supermarket. Keep stocked with healthy food and you’ll be less likely to run out for high calorie junk food.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Maria asks…

What is the difference between a Nutritionist and a Dietitian, and what A Levels are needed respectively?

I am in year 11 and I have to choose my A levels really soon, and I don’t know what subjects I need to take to become either a Dietitian or a Nutritionist. Plus I don’t really know the difference between the two jobs, and I am finding it hard to research it. So please help !

weight loss cardiff answers:

I’m not an expert in the sciences, but I think you’ll need Biology, Math, and Chemistry? Math never goes wrong, Biology is good for that and Chemistry would be essential, I’d say.

Helen asks…

What process do you go through when seeing a dietitian?

I have been forwarded to a dietitian, and i;m un aware what to expect, i’ve not had my first appointment yet and i would like to know what would be happening?
Any help?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I went to a holistic dietitian about a year ago and as sweet as she was I really didn’t get anywhere with her.

All that happened at the first visit is they weigh you and then you talk about your eating habits and your excersise habits. Then she suggest alternatives and what you should do to make progress.

You have to have ALOT of will power for that to help you.

John asks…

I want to become a dietitian/nutritionist when I grow up?

I’m gonna become a ninth grader next week.. My high school is mainly about science, biology, and those types of majors. Those a dietitian/nutritionist fit the categories of this?

What main subject/subjects should I mainly focus on to become one? Thanks.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Well I would recommend that you study well biology, chemistry, and anatomy. It will be a big part of your curriculum in the university of your choice. You have to expect to study english (for speaking in public and writing scientific articles), psychology (for dealing with clients), and other classes that can help you in your academic development. I study in the university of Puerto Rico, and I will say that if you study in the type of high school you are right now, you will have some advantage and it will make it so much easier in the future when you get to the university.

I hope this helps!

i need to lose 20 pounds to lose my belly. i need to know how i can do that easily and effectively. What kinds of foods should i eat in small portions? what kinds should i stick to? know any great work out tips? exercise routine? recipes? ANYTHING would help!!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Always Think Fit:

First step in exercise is to always Think FIT. To make physical improvements, you need to work your body harder than usual. This is referred to as the overload principle. As your body becomes more conditioned, you need to increase the frequency, intensity, or time of your workouts in order to continue improving your fitness level

Choosing an Exercise:
The best exercise is an activity that you enjoy enough to really pursue enthusiastically.
•Indoor (Facility) Activities: If the treadmill, stairmaster, rowing machine or stationery cycle doesn’t excite you, sample some group activities that strike your fancy. Participate in a group cycling class, beat stress with yoga, find balance with martial arts, stay cool with indoor swimming, or kick some you-know-what with boxaerobics.

1. Change your eating habits (i.e. Start eating smaller portions of food) before if you ate a full plate of food try eating 2/3 of a plate instead.
O Substitute aspartame for sugar
o Try eating 3 or 4 smaller meals during the day rather than 2 large ones
o Eat your main large meal at midday with the other meals much smaller in content
o Don’t eat heavy meals late in the evening as the body wont have time to digest it so it ends up stored as fat in your body.
O Balance your meals out during the day so in one day you have a mix of protein, carbohydrate and vitamins
o Drink lots of water during the day and before, during and after exercise, you should drink at least 8 big glasses of water per 24 hours
o Drink alcohol in moderation
o Stop smoking if you smoke or cut down
o Eat more fibre i.e. Pulses grains nuts, pasta, brown rice, cereals, fresh fruit
o Eat more vegetables as part of your diet
o Eat less dairy products or choose those with less fat content i.e. Cottage cheese
o Try steaming or poaching food instead of frying it, frying adds calories by the bucketful
o Cut down on Red meat and eat more lean or better still chicken and fish instead
o Use low fat oils in cooking i.e. Sunflower, corn or Mazola
o Cut down on your salt intake, there are hidden salts even in tinned foods
o Try substituting carrots or fresh fruit instead of biscuits and sweetmeat when you have a craving for something in between meals.
O Drink semi or skimmed milk as opposed to full cream
Simply choose a diet which is low in fat and cholesterol, moderate in sugar and salt and high in fibre but at the same time has a variety of everything thus making it a balanced diet.

Calculate your BMR!!!!
BMR means Basal Metabolic Rate.It is used to estimate how many calories you should consume.By using a simple formula called the Harris-Benedict principle, you can assess your BMR.
Your BMR is the amount of energy your body needs to function.Then, to lose weight, you’ll need to cut calories or burn extra calories and shoot for a level lower than the results you get with this formula.
We use about 60 percent of the calories we consume each day for basic bodily functions such as breathing.Other factors that influence your BMR are height, weight, age and sex.
Step One : Calculate your BMR with the following formula:
•Women: BMR = 655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) – (4.7 x age in years)
•Men: BMR = 66 + (6.23 x weight in pounds) + (12.7 x height in inches) – (6.8 x age in years)
Step two : In order to incorporate activity into your daily caloric needs, do the following calculation:
•If you are sedentary : BMR x 1.2
•If you are lightly active: BMR x 1.375
•If you are moderately active (You exercise most days a week.): BMR x 1.55
•If you are very active (You exercise daily.): BMR x 1.725
•If you are extra active (You do hard labor or are in athletic training.): BMR x 1.9
Create a Calorie Deficit:
In order to lose weight, you must create a calorie deficit. It is easier and healthier to cut back your calorie intake a little bit at a time.
Every 3,500 calories is equivalent to 1 pound.
If you cut back 500 calories a day, you will lose 1 pound per week.
If you exercise to burn off 500 calories a day you will also lose 1 pound per week.
Ideally, you should do a combination of both, (e.g. Cut back 250 calories; burn an extra 250 calories).

I’m on predisone for a sinus infection and i feel like a friggin hipo eating everything
I don’t know how to stop this insane craving to eat.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Well, above all you need to worry about being healthy, not thin.
There is no secret really, fruits, vegetables, water, a healthy diet.
You should sign up for an online program that tracks your weight loss; there is support there.
Another thing I do is look up quotes that inspire me…
Find a sport or way of exercise that is fun, not just exhausting.
And always remember your goal.
