What is the best exercise for weight loss?

I have a one yr old baby and want to lose about 25 lbs. What is the best exercise for weight loss? I have the P90X but can’t get around to trying it. Also, I want to buy a treadmill since I don’t exactly have all the time in the world to go to a gym. I work full time and have a 1 1/2 hour commute each way.
Any ideas?

Hello Love Is Sweet

1. Running – There’s no doubt that running is one of the top cardio workouts there is. It’s an excellent activity for anybody who wishes to shed some fat. If you run a solid workout 3 times a week, you’re bound to see an impressive improvement in how you look and feel.

2. Cut out sugary drinks – One of the biggest sources of empty calories are sugary sodas and drinks. You have no idea how many calories the average person consumes without any real benefit. Cut out sodas and sugar rich sodas and you will have an easier time in losing fat.

3. Get rid of sugary cereals – A lot of us start the day with a bowl of cereals. The question is that the cereals we eat are often jam-packed of sugar and other fattening stuff. If you start your day with a bad food, it’s going to reflect on your entire day. Consume a lean breakfast.

4. Eat a breakfast rich in protein and fiber – You want breakfast to set the tone for the entire day. The way to do that is to include protein and fiber during your breakfast. The protein and fiber will help you control your hunger all day long and keep your metabolism running high.

5. Take an evening walk – You want to discover ways to be more active and burn more calories. Taking a walk each evening is the easiest way to do this. It doesn’t have to be long. Even 30 minutes will work wonders and help you flatten your stomach and burn abs fat.

6. Strength workouts are an excellent way to boost your metabolism and to lose belly fat. You don’t have to work solely your abs. Even if you work your legs, you’re still burning off fat from your whole body. 3 workouts each week ought to be sufficient to get amazing results.

7. Eat more fruit and vegetables – Not only are these rich in fiber but they also help you avoid temptation of more calorific foods like candy, chocolate, and so on. Improve your health by eating 3-5 pieces of fruit and vegetable each single day.

8. Get an abs program – Why crawl toward your goal when someone can teach you how to walk and then run? Of course, abs programs do cost some money but the time and effort they save you is well worth the investment. A good program can show you how to get results even sooner than you would have otherwise.

9. Eat smaller meals all through the day – one of the top ways to increase metabolism and burn more calories is by thinning out your calories into more meals and snacks. 5-6 meals and snacks a day will help you avoid cravings, remain energetic, and feel good.

10. Just be as active as you can – Even if it’s merely walking when you normally drive, taking the stairs, playing with your kids, taking up an active hobby. Anything that gets you moving is a blessing and will help you lose s fat.

Some doctors have even proven that green tea actually has some properties which help suppress hunger. You could buy them as leaves, or you could buy them over the counter as capsules, it makes no difference how you prefer to prepare it because this remedies also helps with body pain, could prevent heart attacks, multiple sclerosis, and it lowers your cholesterol. Try to drink 3 cups a day.

Apple Cider Vinegar – is a type of vinegar made from apple must that makes your body feel filled or satisfied for longer than usual. When preparing, you should add 2 teaspoons to a glass of water and drink. You can also find it as an ingredient in salad dressing and chutney.

How long does it take for weight loss to show?

I was just wondering how long it would take for weight loss to show. I am exercising about twice a day… running for about 25-30 minutes and pilates workout (plant, hundreds, etc.). I am also cutting down on the amount of junk food i eat.. so no more chips or chocolate.

weight loss cardiff answers:

It takes only about a month..and you will start to notice a difference.

Changing your diet to only healthy foods is the best thing you can do and will ensure you will lose weight if combine with walking everyday especially.

You can eat how much you like if you stay within these 3 guidelines and still lose fat naturally and gradually. You should lose 10lbs each month on average. only steamed lean meats, eggs, healthy fruits ,vegetables, nuts, grains (Asian basmati or jasmine rice gives lots of energy and can be found at your local oriental/asian market or some super markets), & yogurt..2. Drink only water, juice, & milk..3. Walk or do some physical exercise 1-3 hour every day.

(btw, recommend you also to buy an electronic food steamer and a rice cooker ((Both Very cheap)) .which, used together make it very easy to prepare very nutritional, healthy meals ,,add a bit of olive oil , diced garlic, pepper, sliced lemon and spices on top of steamed vegeatables, fish or chicken to add more taste if wish as these are healthy too.)

If you lose inches does weight loss follows?

I don’t lose weight easily but been trying to and lost some inches not weight. I weighted myself and was always the same weight but my pants were now fitting which meant i lost inches. now suddenly I lost 8lbs in two weeks. is that normal? Do you lose inches and then lbs or is that weird. Just asking because I have never lost weight so suddenly like that and want to make sure is not something else????? thank you
My exercise routine is cardio and not all the time

weight loss cardiff answers:

Over time yes
One thing to keep in mind is if you are working out your building muscle which are more dense.
Muscles also way more than fat so doing stregth training will help. If your not losing weight but builing muscle the inches will decrease

James asks…

How much weight would I lose if I didn’t eat for two weeks?

I’m a size 14. Don’t lecture me, I didn’t say I was going to go without eating for two weeks, I’m just curious. I lose weight really easily too, if that helps.
I’m fifteen also.

(I’m not going to do it, i just want to know!)

– thanks!

weight loss cardiff answers:

You will lose a lot of weight fast at first, but then it will start to slow down. I starved myself for 3 days and lost 10 pounds… But that was after struggling with an eating disorder for a while. Then when you start eating again you will gain the weight a lot faster then when you lost it. And you wouldnt die. One can live for at least a month without food as long as you drink water. Without water less than a week

George asks…

What are some good diets for my age and weight?

I’m 13, 5’6, and 180 lbs. I’ve tried diets before (and been to weight loss camp) but I can’t find anything that works. What would be some good diets or ideas to help me lose a large amount of weight fairly quickly?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Diets usually don’t work. You should count your calories and get into an exercise routine. Even on a diet, you should eat at least 1400 calories per day if not more depending on your activity level. After you are at the weight you want to be, you can increase to 1800 calories.

Donald asks…

What would happen if you and your horse traded diets for a day?

I know I’d be happy eating what my donkey Peter eats, but what about him?

Do donkeys like coffee, eggs, bacon, toast, ham sandwiches, Swanson’s Hungry Man, and red bull?

What would happen if you traded diets with your horse?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I would end up dancing around in my underwear to AC/DC into the wee hours of the night (my vet has perscribed a peyote diet to cure my horse’s snake phobia).

Robert asks…

Why are magazines so contradictory about diets and food?

Why do magazines dedicate so much space to diets and quick fixes and diet products, yet on the next page it’s all “Love your shape the way you are! Be confident!”, Chocolate cake recipes, advertisements for unhealthy food?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The magazines I read sure don’t offer quick fixes, they want you to live and lead a healthy lifestyle, and to be body confident, and if they do give recipes it’s for healthier versions of your favorite foods, and the advertisers pay money for their magazine so I’m sure they’ll take what they can get, try Shape, Fitness, Health 🙂

How to lose weight without cutting out alcohol?

I’m trying to lose about 10 pounds and tone up a bit. Im a freshman in university and like to have a good time like any other uni student i occasionally drink a bit with friends. I know that if you are trying to lose weight you should really cut out alcohol of your diet but i don’t want to have to miss out on anything because of wanting to lose weight. So i was just wondering what would be the best way to go about losing weight without cutting alcohol out completely. Whats the least fattening alcohol?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Muscle weighs more than fat, so it’s OK to build muscle while losing fat. Don’t be afraid of making muscle.

Eat healthy – don’t cut the calories too much, but do eat a smaller amount. Eat fruits and veggies, lean meats, and whole grains (100% whole wheat bread instead of white, brown rice, etc.)

Drink water – cut out the soda/pop. Try to get 8 cups (measuring cups – 8 ounces) of water each day.

Couple a healthy diet with cardio workouts – 3-5 days a week, 20-30 minutes per session to start. You can walk, jog, bike, play basketball, do aerobics… Whatever you enjoy doing that gets your heart rate up. You don’t have to work out so hard that you feel like you’re dying – work out to the point that you can talk fairly easily, but not jabber on and on. 🙂

Do strength exercises to build muscle (yep, I’m suggesting this). Building muscle helps you lose fat even faster by speeding up your metabolism. Sit ups, push ups, squats, lunges… All these will help. Do these only every other day – don’t strength train the same muscles two days in a row.

Hope this helps! I also recommend, a free web site that helps you track your nutrition and fitness, plus gives lots of good information and encouragement.

How to lose weight in a health way without creating anymore muscle?

I’m 16 and i’m noticing i’ve been gaining weight. Alot of weight. I’m at 130 lbs. The problem is i dont know how to lose the weight because i dont want to exercise. I have huge legs full of muscle, and i dont want anymore. Please help.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Limit these things:
1) Breads
2) Sweets
3) Sodas (Drink LOTS of water!)
4) Potatoes, fries, rice, white breads, and corn.

Do exercises that cause you to sweat for 30 minutes to an hour daily.
In everything that you do, do it with moderation. Do not deny yourself anything because your body will crave what you are denying it to have. So you can have anything but the things that can put weight on you faster, you need to eat in moderation. That way you won’t be craving things you have decided to deny yourself of.
