Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Steven asks…

How much would a personal trainer/dietitian make in one year?

I’m thinking about going into personal training, and I thought that becoming a dietitian would also be a good idea to make more money. How much do you think I could make in a small city in Manitoba?

weight loss cardiff answers:

It depends on how many clients you have, your billable rate and how many certifications you have under your name.

Robert asks…

What steps do I take in order to become a Registered Dietitian?

I am a student attending Fort Valley State University and I aspire to be a Registered Dietitian. My major is Food and Nutrition, but what others steps do I need to take in order to see my goals met? Also what other career options do I have under this major?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Oh you’re definitely on the right track. FVSU is an accredited university that offers the DPD core courses for becoming a dietitian. Keep your grades up and study hard!

With accredited schools, you receive the DPD classes as part of your program. After finishing these classes, you can apply for an internship.

During the internship, it ranges from 6-12+ months. You do several rotations at different sites. They can range from 3 weeks at a place to a couple of months. It all depends on the school.

You normally spend time at a food management area (like the cafeteria of a hospital learning to manage diets for large amounts of people), at a public area (like a WIC clinic), and at specialty areas (like burn units of hospitals or cystic fibrosis areas).

After completing the internship, you study more for the exam. After the RD exam, you’re a registered dietitian.

With your major, you could do several things. A friend of mine is a teacher for middle school that has a creative cuisine class. Other friends are working in the food science area of nutrition, running labs, and doing research. People work for public health.

Hope this helps a bit. Good luck!

Paul asks…

What college major category does a dietitian usually fall under?

Ive noticed that being a dietitian is not listed as its own major. Would it be somewhere around health?
Colleges in California

weight loss cardiff answers:

It would be health and nutrition, but you should speak with your counselor to find out what the core classes would be. Hope this has helped. Best of luck!

Helen asks…

Anyone know how to lose weight in 3 days?

Does anyone know a way to lose ten pounds in like 3 days?? its really important!! Were going on a cruise, and we get back 3 days before my new school starts, and i know ill gain a ton of weight for the cruise, so i need it all to come off in 3 days!! Any help? I really wanna be slinder and pretty on the 1st day of school!!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Try NOT to gain it in the first place. I know that cruises have all that great free food, but if you change youor outlook and concentrate on doing something else, like participating in fitness classes, and day trips, etc., which are offered on the cruise, you may actually lose weight while you are travelilng and not have to worry about it. In fact, you may be able to change your outlook permanently. Good luck!

Donald asks…

Quick way to lose weight in 3 days?

what is the quickest way to lose as much weight as possible in 3 days, so that a physical difference is noticeable? x (p.s. i am not normally unhealthy, i eat well and excercise however this is just a very temporary emergency! thanks)

weight loss cardiff answers:

Well by just not eating for 3 days you would burn 6000 calories. Then if you went walking for 12 hours in one day you would burn like 4000 calories, that times 3 is 12,000 plus that 6000 from not eating is 18,000 which means you would lose like 5 pounds.

All of these things were very hard for me but I am so fed up with not feeling good about me! So I made the sacrifice…Today I weigh 227!! My goal is also 160 which is completely possible by September. I do take a multivitamin and a vitamin c which I’ve noticed give me more energy! I workout 4-6 times a week and do 45-60 minutes of cardio and weights ( I alternate legs and arms )

Good Luck! It’s hard but so worth it!

Linda asks…

Weight loss success stories?

I need to get some inspiration. Tell me a weight loss story and how it has, if so, changed your life.

weight loss cardiff answers:

I’ve lost 60 pounds since February just by eating better, eating less, and exercise. NO diet pills, NO starving myself, nothing stupid.

My life is pretty awesome anyway, and I didn’t lose weight for any reason other than I didn’t want to die of heart disease or contract diabetes. I have a lot more stamina now and I buy smaller clothes. Those are good too 🙂

Laura asks…

How can I lose weight easily as a male teenager?

I am currently at 5-foot-5 and 157 pounds. I am a 15 year old teenage male looking to lose weight. I was generally an average, regular looking kid as a toddler and child, but soon realized in middle school I had a gained a little fat on me, developing a “gut” as you could say. It stuck with me all the way till now, but it’s gotten a little worse. Between now and September of ’06 I went from 115 to 150ish. I don’t like the way I look and I feel uncomfortable about it in public places. My doc said the main problem was going to bed right after I eat with little exercise and eating late at night. I’ve gotten slightly better about it but barely any improvements. I’ve tried using the ab lounge consistently but little improvements as well. I want to find out how to lose wait on my sides, belly button area etc. Any knowledgable or valid answers would REALLY help me out big time!

I seem to think it’s my lack of metabolism and not eating right. Ways to improve my metabolism if thats the case?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Being a 15 year old male, this is a very easy time to lose weight, as you are growing. My advice to you would be to not worry too much about your weight, and to slowly modify your diet, one step at a time. Like maybe decide to replace soda/juice with water, and nothing more. Then slowly add more things in. Most important is exercise. Go out and play! Find some kind of physical activity that you enjoy! Ride a bike, shoot hoops, find a sport you enjoy, dance (ha for some reason i don’t think you are a dancer) , rollerskate, go swimming, etc…..Using the ab lounge is not going to get you anywhere because it isn’t fun and it isn’t cardiovascular exercise, so it doesn’t burn a lot of calories. Not that the ab lounge is a bad thing, it will help build up your stomach muscles, but wont eliminate any fat on your stomach. It you really want to commit to losing weight I would recommend joining a gym. Do you have any friends that weight train? Lifting weights on a regular basis builds muscle (which is very easy for you do do, being a 15 year old guy) and the more muscle you develop the more calories you burn. I found that I actually like lifting weights, I somewhat look forward to it, whereas running, I do, but I don’t like it so much. Your metabolism will increase as you become more active, burning more calories. Good luck, and try to do what makes you feel good.

Joseph asks…

How do i lose weight easily with Asthma?

I’m a 14 Year old Girl with Asthma, so its very difficult to exercise. An ideas on how i can lose weight fast with Minimum exercise?

weight loss cardiff answers:

You don’t need to exercise to lose fat. All you need to do is eat a proper and varied diet of wholsome and nutritious foods while keeping your daily caloric intake below your daily caloric burn. Check these fitness facts.

• If you consume fewer calories than you burn, you have to lose fat eventually. There are no exceptions to this fact.

• There are only two nonsurgical things we can do to sculpt your body and they are (1) add or lose fat and (2) add or lose muscle. Muscle can only be lost naturally through atrophy.

• A pound of fat will yield about 3500 calories (Kcal) of energy.

• An average person must run or walk about 5 miles (8 km) every day to burn one pound of fat per week assuming their diet allows it.

• An average person must run or walk about 350 miles (563 km) to burn 10 pounds and their diet must allow it. If they walk 350 miles (13.4 marathons) at 3mph it will take them 117 hours or about three full 40 hour work weeks to burn 10 pounds of fat.

• If an average person consumes 500 calories per day less than they burn, they will lose about a pound a week with no extra time or physical effort required.

•Running does not burn any more fat than walking as long as the distance remains the same.

• It does not matter if a person runs or walks a given distance…they will burn the same number of calories. Calories are energy and energy expenditure is not time dependent. How fast a person runs has nothing to do with how many calories they burn. Only the distance determines the calories burned.

• There is no exercise which will remove fat from a particular place on the body. Your body (genetics) determines where you lose fat, not you nor your diet nor your exercise. Spot fat removal by diet or exercise is a myth which is why people spend so much money on liposuction.

• It is not necessary to do “cardio” to burn fat. Cardio is aerobic exercise while maintaining a heart rate of 80% of max or more which is used to maintain cardio-vascular fitness. You can burn fat in your sleep.

• It doesn’t matter how hard or how long you exercise, you will not lose any fat if you eat too much. You can always eat more calories than you can burn. When it comes to burning fat, diet always trumps exercise.

• There are no supplements which will make your body burn fat. Only you can do that with diet control.

Here’s how to lose fat.

Trying to burn fat without counting calories is like driving while wearing a blindfold. You know what you’re doing but you can’t see the hazards. You’re going to have to count and track calories if you want to burn fat in the most efficient way. Here’s how.

• Go here and calculate your BMR.

• Go here and multiple your BMR by the appropriate number for your activity level to get your daily burn rate or the number of calories you burn per day. For example, if you are “lightly active”, multiply your BMR by 1.375 or 1.725 if you are “very active”.

• Subtract 500 calories to burn one pound of fat per week or 1000 calories to burn two pounds of fat per week. Don’t try to burn faster than 2 pounds per week.

• Use the following macronutrient ratios for your daily burn: 55% calories from carbs, 20% calories from fat, and 25% calories from protein.

If you do the above, you will burn fat as long as nothing changes such as your activity level or your metabolic rate or weight. As you lose weight, you will need to recalculate you BMR because it is weight dependent.

If you want a website to do all the math for you, make it easy for you to look up the calories for your foods, track your intake, and provide you with a helpful discussion forum of fat burners like you, go here and sign up for your own free fitness account.

It takes a little bit of effort to understand the above and to make the necessary dietary changes but it will serve you well for the rest of your life by helping you habituate smart eating habits. That’s important because keeping your weight under control only gets harder as you get older.
