Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Daniel asks…

is giving up soda an easy weight loss plan?

my dad says if i gave up soda, i could loose a lot of weight (in a “long” period of time) so… if i gave up soda for like, 3 months, about how much would i loose?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Giving up soda is a great way to cut back.
Soda has a ton of sugar that clogs arteries and its just really bad for you. Its hard to say how much weight you will lose because every1’s body is different and I don’t know what other foods you eat….
But maybe a few pounds

Maria asks…

Why do people think that weight loss is easy? That they can pop a pill and never break a sweat?

Im so tired of peole whining that they want to lose weight, which pill should they take.The key to weight loss is diet and exercise.If you work out, great!You have to keep pushing yourself or you won’t get anywhere.I just don’t understand why people think that it’s going to be easy to burn calories.Fad diets don’t work and neither do pills.Is that really so hard to understand?You didn’t gain the weight overnight, you’re not going to lose it that way.Let’s also not forget that yo-yo dieting hurts your body in the long run.But that’s all for them to figure out.Let the pill-poppers have a heart attack when their heart rate gets up too high.They have been warned.
I know all the reasons people think it’s easy like tv ads and such. I just don’t understand the psychology behind it. Why are we programmed in this country to want everything RIGHT NOW? Anything worth having is worth fighting for, IMO.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Hey hun….i think you have said whats been on a lot of peoples minds in this forum….i also think that a lot of people look at it as somethin’ like..oh i think im gonna loose some weight and see how fast it melts off…then get discouraged cause it doesn’t…i have learned from personal experience that weight loss is not just something to do for a few weeks and then drop it….its a commitment…even if you ever get to your idea body style then you have to keep working to stay there…it takes years of hard work sweat and sacrifice to get in great physical shape…there is no need in pills or creams or even low carb diets because your body will loose the weight if you will feed it right and get off your butt….in other words getting fit is NOT for the faint of heart….love daisy

Sharon asks…

In regards to diet foods and different sources.?

I am needing some sources in terms of a dietary stage. I have looked for different types of foods for my uncle. He is in the process of going on a diet, and he would like to know what steps he should take. Please give me some sources of different foods and diet drinks he may enjoy.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Special k has alot of good products especially the cereals also they make a protein bar that is really good. I dont know where you live but here in the usa we have the lean Cuisine meals that are low in calories and taste very good with a wide selection. I dont like to “drink” my food so i cant help you with any suggestions on diet drinks but what it comes down to is moderation. You can eat anything and loose weight because its really about how much you are eating. If you are not eating things that taste good to you, you will never stick with it and then after you get off the diet you will end up gaining the weight back

Lisa asks…

How long does it take to lose weight when running?

Im going to start running tomorrow. How long does it take to lose weight when im running? Im going to eat small meals & drink lots of water. Im also going to run for an hour each day. (if i have time). So, how long does it take to lose weight while running?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Hi.Coming from me personally I have been running since 2005. I have lost a good 45 pounds now, but still have 5 more to go until I reach my goal. I did hit a certain weight that I had trouble loosing.I weighted a certain weight and couldn’t loose more. What I did to loose more weight was I did other exercises. I took a 2 PE classes at my college back to back. It was a body conditioning class that has cardio kick boxing, aerobics, toning..etc.

Keep running though.If you hit that peak where you can’t seem to loose more weight, consider doing another type of exercising activity.

David asks…

In order to lose weight while running, is it best to sprint then walk and repeat?

For example, i have heard that while running on the track, if you want to lose weight it is best to sprint the straightaways and walk the curves? Is this true? Any additional tips?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The best for cardio is jogging. The best for losing weight is walking and the reason for this is you burn calories based on the distance you go not how fast you go. And if you are sprinting chances are you will get tired faster and leave. Walking you can go all day.

Steven asks…

What is the correct way to lose weight by running? 2-3 times a week is good?

I’m trying to lose weight by running 2-3 times a week, but everytime I can only run like 1.5 miles (about half hour), should I go for 3 miles or so? ALSO, What is the best RUNNING plan? (how many times a week and how many miles every time?) THANKS!

weight loss cardiff answers:

First of all, throw out every thing you know, and don’t listen to the sale person pushing Hoodia.

Keep running, but slow down a little. Go for time not distance and you will notice that after a few weeks that you are traveling a lot further.

Keep in mind that running sucks but there is a reason that you are doing it and you need to focus on that reason.
Mine is Triathlons! I have never done one, but I have a goal of doing a few this new season.

I like to run outside along a road where people can see me. No one likes to see a failure and you might feel like on if your just walking. Select you point for a turn around and get there and back no matter how long it takes you. Your gonna run or look like a failure. (What works for one may not for another).

Good luck and keep in mind that you can do it! Watch and you’ll be pusing that 8 mile run!

weight loss cardiff answers:

I find that drinking water helps a lot in shedding weight. It isn’t so much the water but the lack of sugar that’s in drinks that does it.
I also walk whenever I can. Walking is very good for losing weight, so is eating less,.. Try it.

Mary asks…

are there any weight loss plans for teenagers?

I want to know if there are any plans designed specifically for teenagers and what they are, so if anyone can tell me, it will be greatly appreciated.

weight loss cardiff answers:

To really lose your weight for good. Eat healthily with lots of veggies, lean meat and complex carbs and exercise. They will increase your metabolism rate and burn fats.

I am on low carb, low fat, high fibre, high protein and a hour brisk walk 5 times a week, and I have lost 31lbs and gain better health. I am now maintaining my 108lbs for more than a year.

My teenage boy eats the same as me with more complex carbs. That’s based on his high energy output.

Details such as meals, recipes, walking as an exercise and to shape the body etc etc, are in my blog
