Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Chris asks…

Help with losing weight….?

I am 13 years old, about 5’5, and about 180 lbs. I want to lose between 40 and 50 lbs. by the beginning of September, with about 20 pounds gone by June. How can I accomplish these goals in a safe way? (Incidentally, I had very unhealthy eating habits as a younger kid, and I have found that I lose weight fairly easily.) Please be specific about any diets, exercises, etc. Thanks in advance. =)

weight loss cardiff answers:

OK, you’r only 13 so no drastic diets. Try this – eat as much green vegatables/ salads/ stirfry’s as you want, & any time you want. Drink 6 glasses of water a day, eggs, chicken, fish are all good. Not much red meat, ok, if lean twice a week.
Stay away from anything manufactured ie takeaway food, breads, baked foods, tinned foods etc, porridge for breakfast
Fruit juice is full of sugar, whole fruit is ok before lunch
try to exercise ie: a 30-45 min walk in the morning every day

Linda asks…

Desperately wants to lose weight, tried everything, any suggestions?

Hey guys. (:

I’ve never been the skinniest girl if you know what I mean. When I hit the age of ten, I weighed over 150 pounds, and I was barely 5’ft tall. I didn’t diet, but I was an outside kid. There was rarely a day you saw me in the house. My family tried to pass it off as the whole “big boned” thing, and “it’s just baby fat”. And for the longest time, I believed them. Through early teenage years, I struggled with my weight even more. I started to realize that my so called “baby fat” wasn’t shedding like it had been promised. When I was 15 I weighed over 170, and I was 5ft exactly. Needless to say, I was a fatass. Lol. Now I’m 17. I’ve been dieting and exercising for over two months now, when I weighted myself in the store and saw that I was 169 and still only 5ft tall. I was very disappointed to be over the medium limit, closer to 200 pounds then 100. I’m pretty sure if I’m 5ft tall, I should only weigh, AT MAX, 120. Right? Can anyone tell me? I limited myself to eating Raisin Bran for breakfast, maybe an egg or two at lunch. No butter with it at all. Just tomatoes and onions mixed in to give it flavor. At dinner, I maybe eat a salad and munch on some of the meat that the rest of my family prepared for themselves, as long as it’s low fat beef or some sort turky substance, with little to no grease. I haven’t allowed myself ANY carbs whatsoever. No pasta, no bread, no potatoes, no rice. I don’t eat mayonnaise or any kind of condiment, I drink NOTHING but water. I weighed myself this past weekend and I’m down to 149. But I’m still not happy at all. I want to get rid of this pooch that I tuck inside my pants when I sit down. I don’t want ANY fat rolls when I’m sitting. Any good exercises someone can recommend to me, that wont absolutely kill me? I do a lot of jogging, squats, and I work out on this machine that targets your core and back muscles. Or maybe I need to limit my diet more, or change it? What am I doing wrong? Why can’t I shed weight as easily as everyone else? And aren’t you supposed to feel more energetic after working out, and proud of yourself? I feel exactly the opposite. When I finish working out, I feel disgusting. Not because I’m covered in sweat. I just think about how much my stomach pooch jiggles and how hard I’m working out and how I’m not seeing any results and I want to grab it and saw it off with a knife. When I finish working out, I feel worthless. I feel like I’m the ugliest thing in the world. By this time I’m STARVING and I go an look in the fridge to search for something to take the hunger pain away, and then this nagging voice in the back of my head goes “You don’t deserve to eat. Starve. Starve. You’re fat. You don’t deserve it. Starve.” And a lot of times, I end up depriving myself of a meal though could be vital. I might be wrong, but I’m pretty sure when you finish working out, you’re supposed to be proud, pat yourself on the back, eat and apple, feel energetic and all that. I think something is wrong with me. Please, any responses are welcome. Tell me what I SHOULD weigh, for my age and height. Tell me if I’m dieting wrong. Tell me what exercises I could do. Tell me if it’s normal for me to feel depressed after working out. Please. Thank you for reading!
Here’s a few pictures of me.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Losing 10 lbs a month is a good and safe target. Any faster weight loss is likely to be temporary only and in most cases you regain it all.

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

You can always eat negative calorie foods for weight loss and below is a list of negative calorie foods that will boost your metabolism.

Negative Calorie Fruits:

Negative Calorie Vegetables:
cabbage (green)
Chile peppers (hot)
garden cress
green beans

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.

Michael asks…

My girlfriend needs to lose weight…?

now don’t get me wrong, i LOVE my girlfriend, and in fact we’re getting married next year, but she needs to lose weight for health reasons.

we’re both 140kilo (308 pounds), but i’m 6’4 with alot of muscle and she’s at least a foot shorter than me.

myself and her family are worried about her health, she has really bad knees and gets sick easily, but whenever i try to talk to her about her weight she goes right on the defensive and I can’t say anything that she won’t take the wrong way and end up crying over

she’s a wonderful girl and i love her so much, but i don’t want her to end up dying at 50 or even earlier, and we really want kids but i don’t think it’s healthy for her to get pregnant yet.

i’m at a loss of what to do!!!

Why not go for walks together and try some healthy foods.

Sandy asks…

quick and easy weight loss tips?

i’m 17 years old, i’m 5′ 7″, and i’m 160 pounds. (i know already that this is sorta over weight)
i need to lose weight fast because its summer and i really hate to be the only girl at the beach wearing a t shirt and shorts (it’s embarrassing)
so how do i lose this weight quick without going as far as totally just starving myself or throwing up??
and also for now, are there any bathing suits that i could wear comfortably at my current weight??
any help would be great. i’m taking any advice. thank you in advance! 🙂
(no mean comments please, if u want to leave some go bother someone else)

weight loss cardiff answers:

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).

“When two or three are gathered, I am there also.”
Folks who think they can be a solitary Christian, may not be correct. Alone we can do the work of one, but together, with Christ working through us, we can accomplish great things. Christians are not meant to be alone.

Nancy asks…

whats effective way to lose weight without exercise?

I am trying to lose weight before school, but i don’t have the time to do any extra exercising. Currently i am on the Atkins diet (all meat and protein). Its okay. I haven’t gained weight. But i’m not losing at a pace that will reach my goal before school. Are there any other effective diets out there besides fasting?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Atkins is a smart diet choice. You only consume the most 20 carbs a day. If i include to many carbs in my meals, I gain weight. Fasting like you said is not an option so how about including more veggies and fruits in your diet plan. Really, all diets fail, you have to sometimes include a small sugar treat or salty food to shock your system. If you do ever have a binge day, consume all your carbs and calories in a 1 hour period. The reason? Because you fool your body of the amount of insulin taken into your system. So don’t eat a piece of chocolate cake at 2 p.m. Then some pretzels at 5 p.m. Just IF you do go off you’re diet, eat all the junk food in a 1 hour period. Also, dancing around you’re room, typing questions on here all burn calories. Just sitting and resting burns calories as well. So small things make a big difference 🙂

David asks…

How do I lose weight without exercise? Everytime I exercise I feel giddy and about to faint.?

I went for a blood test before and I’m not anaemic. This is KILLING ME cause I really want to lose weight. I’m thinking about 11pounds. I’m 5″4, 120 pounds. Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Fill your self up with water because that takes up a lot of food space so you would be too full to eat

or just eat carbs in the morning and lunch

Lizzie asks…

is it possible to lose weight without exercise?

I would like to lose a little bit of weight but I just dont have the time to exercise. I have so much going on right now when I do get time off I spend it sleeping to wake up for the next task at hand. I was thinking maybe eating healthier would help me shed some pounds. I figured I could stop drinking even though a rarely drink and maybe eat healthier, Does anyone have advice?

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you want to lose weight, you need to two things: eat less and exercise more. Weight gain happens when you create a calorie surplus (eat more than you burn). Your body takes the excess calories and converts them to fat which get stored around your stomach, arms and thighs. The longer you remain in a calorie surplus, the more weight you’ll gain. To lose that weight, you need to do the opposite. You need to create a calorie deficit (start eating less than you burn).

Your first step is to figure out how many calories you burn on a daily basis. Use a calorie calculator – The number you get from this tool is what your body burns on a daily basis. To lose weight, simply eat less. It sounds a lot easier than it is but making small changes helps you adjust to a new lifestyle. Don’t think of this as a diet, think of it as a new life. Instead of eating foods high in sugars, white flour and saturated fat, go with fruits, vegetables, whole wheats, fish, lean meats, nuts and beans. In addition to eating less, you also need to exercise more. Start off at 1-2 times per week and work your way up to 3-5 times per week.

Don’t make all of these changes at once or you won’t be able to properly adjust to them. Generally, eating healthier foods will decrease your calorie intake. Compare a doughnut to an apple and you’ll see that healthy foods are lower in calories. You can find some more information at the Straight Health Forums –
