Linda asks…

What diets are the best to lose weight easily and quickly?

I’ve been trying to lose weight for a long time but cannot seem to find a decent diet that suits me.
I go college 3 times a week so need something that I can also follow during these days. Need something which won’t leave me too hungry but can help me lose weight at the same time. Started going zumba and water aerobics for my exercise. Help? all suggestions are welcome
I’m about 5 ft 3
11 and half stone

weight loss cardiff answers:

I don’t exactly know a diet, but I for a light snack I would suggest a celery. Celery’s have such little calories that you’d burn calories eating it. Another thing: Games like Wii fit plus help loads too. They track your progress in losing weight as well, which I think is pretty good, and help you do exercises. But then you need a Wii (which isn’t really the best console out there)
Sorry about not knowing a complete diet, but I thought I might as well give a suggestion.
Good Luck!

Whats a good actual working all natural diet pill?

I need to lose weight quickly and all naturally. Im willing to eat right and exercise with it.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Being fat and overweight is a major problem in the world. There are
millions of people who suffer from excess weight and who would have
liked to have a normal body. But the truth is most of these people
don’t really know the effective ways to lose weight, haven’t tried
hard enough although using the right methods, get discouraged too
easily or don’t understand the weight loss process and how the body
really works in relation to food, weight, fat, exercises. To lose
weight, you need to understand this process first so that you know
you’re going in the right direction for your weight loss objectives.
Food components like fat, carbohydrates, protein contain a specific
number of calories. Alcoholic drinks contain calories and water has no
Everytime you eat food or drink alcohol for instance, your body gains
calories. If your body gets too many calories than you burn, your body
will store the excess calories as fat and you’ll naturally gain
weight. For example, if you consume 2000 calories per day and you burn
1000 calories per day, the excess 1000 calories will be stored as fat
deposits throughout your body.
In order for you to lose weight, you need to burn out more calories
than you consume. For example, if you consume 2000 calories per day
and you burn 2500 calories per day, you will lose weight. Well you
might just say “Why don’t I just cut down on my calories intake
considerably, hence I don’t really have to burn many calories to lose
weight?” Well that would be starving yourself and is not a good idea
at all. This will make you weaker, hungrier and you will eat quite a
lot after. Anyway it does not help. Your body needs food and calories
to get energy. You need to eat enough so as not to starve yourself and
be able to burn these calories and more after. On the other hand, if
you burn out the exact same amount of calories that you take, you will
stay the same.
Two simple things to losing weight naturally revolve around proper
nutrition and exercises. There is no shortcut to losing weight in a
healthy way.
Consider these 2 tips to lose weight naturally:
(1) Eat normally and healthily
Don’t cut down on your usual meals. Take your breakfast, lunch and
dinner. Skipping your meals is not a good solution for your weight
loss goal. The thing is what you eat is what is important to help
combat your weight problems. If you eat more fats, you’ll have a
harder time burning calories because fats contain more calories per
gram than carbohydrates and protein. Try changing your eating habits.
For instance, instead of eating fried foods, try boiled or steamed
foods. But this does not mean you should avoid fatty foods at all cost
even taking your favorite snacks which can contain fats. The best
thing is to do it moderately.
Here are a few simple and healthy food suggestions. Add tuna in your
meals. You have tuna packed in oil or water. Opt for the one in water
which has almost no fat as compared to the one in oil with
considerably more fat. Tuna is low in calories and has a high
nutritional value. You can make a tuna salad with tomatoes, lettuce,
onions, olive oil and avoid adding any high-fat condiments like
mayonaise. If you want to add mayonaise, just add lightly. Then you
can make a tuna sandwich with it. Boiling chicken breasts without the
skin is a good choice too. You can also eat it in a sandwich as well.
When you eat meat, make sure you trim off the fats first. Adding fish
in your meals is recommended. Not only is fish good for health and low
in fat and calories, they are good for the heart because they are rich
in omega-3 fatty acids mostly oily fish like sardines, salmon, tuna,
herring amongst others. It’s recommended to eat at least 1 fish dish a
(2) Be active and exercise
Being active is one of the most important steps in losing weight. If
you are just idle and don’t move a lot, you won’t progress. You need
to exercise. Here are a few activities you can engage in ie weight
training, jogging, aerobics, swimming, bicycling, walking amongst
As you can see, losing weight doesn’t have to be very complicated. But
it does require some work from your part. If you adopt the habit of
eating normally and healthily, you will get that routine with time and
you will get use to it. At the same time, be active and exercise
yourself and enjoy the activities that you’re doing. You won’t see all
this as an ordeal but rather as your way of living and it’s a healthy
one. In the long run, you will be surprised by the results. Just give
it time and you will burn the calories, the excess fat and you will
lose your excess weight. Good luck in your weight loss goals.

Donna asks…

How to quickly but healthily lose weight?


I have been trying to lose weight for a really long time. I gain weight really quickly on my bum, thighs, and stomach. When I used to run everyday I used to lose weight and maintain a nice and healthy body shape. However, I barely have time to do anything anymore with school and a job. I only need to lose around 20 pounds and to tone my bum, stomach, and thighs.

I need some good foods to eat (that i can eat on the go while at school) and exercises that I can do easily at home everyday with my busy schedule. I can run in the basement (I’ve done it before). I also have an exercise bike.

My trouble isn’t always losing weight, but maintaining my body in a healthy way.


weight loss cardiff answers:

Exercising and eating healthy is a lifestyle change, ofcourse you’re going to gain weight if you stop working out and eating properly. Don’t bullshit, almost everyone has time to workout, the minimum is 3 days a week for an hour. Your exercise can come from sports if you’d like. Eating junk food in moderation and low fat diets is the best way to go. Heres some tips for losing weight.

Intermittent Fasting, do research on that. Google or go on Youtube and search “fastingtwins”. No this not a diet or starving yourself. Its more of telling you when to eat and when to stop eating.

For your diet, I would not recommend a low carb diet, just because it is probably one of the hardest diets for people to adjust too, people are in bad moods most of the time but not everyone, it’s not a great long term lifestyle, many people put on the weight again after the diet because they don’t know what to eat after they accomplish their goals, and you will not build muscle on that kind of diet. The best thing I can say about a low carb diet is it is probably the fastest way to lose weight. I recommend going on a low fat diet, eating around 40% carbs 40% protein and 20% fat, but you can change it up a bit to fit your own personal preferences. Make sure your carbs come from complex carb foods and not simple carbs foods. You can do your own research on the differences between complex and simple, its quite simple though. Plant based diets are good too, and the good thing about plant based and low fat diets is that you can live the rest of your life on this diet. You can have some cheat days, but everything in moderation is best.

Lastly you need to workout for any diet. Try working out for about an hour if you can, do some High Intensity Cardio and lift some weights. Try to workout atleast 3 days a week and give yourself atleast 1 day of the week to rest.

Do all this and I promise you’ll be melting the fat away. And if you apply the intermittent fasting to your diet you will lose weight very quickly, and just for the heck of it I will explain the basics. So when you apply intermittent fasting to your diet, all your doing is giving yourself a eating window. For example, I eat around 12pm and stop eating around 6pm, thats a 6 hour eating window, and during those 6 hours I eat all my calories for the day. Then I fast from 6pm till the next day at 12pm, a 18 hour fast, and I workout around 8am-10am for about an hour, so my body will be using my fat as energy since I haven’t eaten since 6pm, and after my workout I eat at 12pm. It’s such a powerful tool to losing weight, and you will not feel like crap, it will take maybe a week to 2 weeks of adjusting, but it will get better, and you can live your entire life like this if you wish.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Richard asks…

How am I supposed to lose weight when my family eats unhealthy?

There’s never really any fruits or vegetables in the house, only junk food, which I’m going to be tempted to eat.
I really want to lose weight, and my mom just doesn’t understand.
Can you give me healthy meals that I can stick to for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?
I’m begging you for help.

weight loss cardiff answers:

As far as overall health goes diet and exercise are both important but as far as specifically weight loss goes, diet is actually up to 80% of the problem (or solution).
So exercise is very important, don’t get me wrong, and it’ll definitely speed up the process. But you are right that motivation is the biggest part of the battle, so your situation becomes rather sticky. But I’m a little confused. Does your mom refuse to buy anything healthy for you? Or simply refuse to join you in your dieting?
In either case, I suggest doing research and coming to your mom with concrete science about the dangers of being unhealthy AS WELL AS the benefits of being healthy and some tasty looking healthy recipes. If your mom has been refusing to buy you healthy food then that should definitely be enough to change her mind. If she has just been refusing to join you, it may or may not get her on board depending on how convincing you are with your research and recipes.
Since most healthier meals require cooking, you may develop a hobby out of it.

I’m no expert, but I know waay more than the average person about nutrition. So hopefully this helps:

What recent research has been showing is that there is a certain rule of thumb that natural or “whole” foods are almost always the better choice. For centuries humans have eaten what they can hunt, find on the ground, or grow, and then we sometimes hold it over fire. That’s how we’ve eaten forever and thats how our bodies evolved to eat, it’s what we’re meant for.
That being the case, there have been many cultures which eat only natural foods without any chemicals and they have very low obesity rates. Even Eskimo people ate pretty much nothing but seal meat, which is very high in fat, they were relatively healthy.
Why? Because our bodies are designed to eat natural foods, not fake preserved foods with unnatural chemicals like hydrogenated oils and processed sugars like corn syrup. Our bodies don’t have a problem adjusting to high fat diets as long as they are totally natural. Now, it may be easier to split the different between a high fat natural diet and a low fat fake one. So you ought to split the difference. Eat any whole food, but you can speed up the process by eating whole foods which are low in fat and high in vitamins. Avoid starchy types of foods like white potatoes (sweet potatoes are alright) and breads, but don’t completely eliminate them from your diet, and given the choice, always pick that over something unnatural. Even if it says “diet” on the front, the whole food is still better. Avoid high sugar foods but especially avoid corn syrup. I can’t stress that enough. Natural sugar makes you WAY less fat than processed corn syrup, and corn syrup also can give you cancer later in life.

AVOID SODA. Even diet soda, diet soda is a huge scam, it does virtually nothing better for your body than regular soda. Soda is basically like drinking candy. Dropping soda is a huge stepping stone. A 12 oz coke can has 40.5 grams of corn syrup. That’s almost as much as an entire package of skittles, which are pretty much made up entirely of sugar.
AVOID RED MEAT like Pork and Beef. They are not lean meats. Chicken, turkey, and fish are much healthier and are a great substitute for your sources of protein (especially fish, salmon is like a miracle food – low in fat and chock full of just about everything your body needs. Mahi mahi is pretty good for you and catfish isn’t the best, but it’s still better than beef or pork).

Also, most people think the vegetarian diet isn’t good because it lacks protein. I’m not saying go veggie but you should know that this is a myth. Very rarely do vegetarians lack protein because people need a lot less protein than most think. You do need it, but very few people in the U.S. Are anywhere near needing more. You will get the right amount. So don’t ever worry about trying to get more in your diet. It will just slow you down in weight loss.
Two more things:
Portion of food is a huge factor in weight loss. Sometimes overeating healthy food can be worse than eating the right amount of a food that is not quite as healthy. Overeating is definitely something to avoid. And I know you’re probably hating to hear that because you don’t want to eat a meal that doesn’t satisfy you and leaves you hungry but a good way to make sure that doesn’t happen is to eat more slowly. Your body takes a while to process the idea that it is no longer hungry, so if you eat more slowly, you will start to realize that you are full before you think you would be full, meaning you can eat less and still be satisfied.
Drinking lots of water actually helps speed up the weight loss process quite a bit.

Also, just to clarify, when I say natural foods, that doesn’t mean you can’t cook them. I count cooking as a natural process. I’m just saying that fruits, vegetables, and lean meats are much better for you than anything frozen or preserved that you find at the store.

Helen asks…

How do I stop feeling sick all the time?

I’m always feeling nauseous, sick to my stomach, and out of breath. I’m over weight and I know thats a part of it. However my constant feelings of sickness and dizziness effect my workout, and I know what I’m eating is a part of that too. What foods should I eat/ not eat to clear out my system and start fresh? and once my system is clear of whatever is giving it issue, what foods should I eat to fuel my body the best way possible and stay lean? I’d like to loose weight naturally, (no fancy weight loss medications and supplements that could be dangerous) so any help that you can recommend is welcomed. Any work outs that get particularly good results and please RECIPES RECIPES RECIPES!!! I’d like to eat healthy food that also tastes good as well, I know it has to exist somewhere. Please give me a hand here I’ve been trying to loose weight for a long time to no success.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Taking in mild and easy to digest soups and juices are recommended to allow the stomach to go back to its normal functioning. A simple consommé of vegetable with leeks, onions, garlic and ginger is a great option to start with. Progress to heavier soups made with starchy vegetables like squash, sweet potatoes, beans and corn. Alternatively, a porridge made with rice is also a good choice

William asks…

What kind of snacks should I eat to gain weight?

I’m trying to gain weight and I’m gonna start eating big meals and some snacks in between. What are some healthy snacks I can eat that are high in calories?
I heard that just eating a lot of small portions throughout the day increases your metabolism, making you LOSE weight.

weight loss cardiff answers:

It may be easier to eat six or more smaller, balanced meals rather than eating three large meals, especially if you’re not used to eating much at one time.

Protein powders and nutritional supplements such as Ensure can be added for in-between meal snacks. You can also make your own delicious protein shakes at home with a blender using milk, yogurt, frozen fruit, etc. Look for some easy recipes here:
Exchange the skim milk and fat-free yogurt for regular since you don’t want to lose weight. Most protein powders are not very tasty unless mixed with other ingredients.

Exercise is an important part of healthy weight gain. Strength training is especially important and will build muscles. This can be done at home or in a gym. Cardio exercises are healthy and should be a part of your routine, but they burn maximum calories and may cause you to lose weight if you don’t eat consume plenty of calories. Limit your cardio workout to 30 minutes. Consider activities such as: power walking, jogging, biking, swimming laps, jumping rope, dancing, skating, etc. Yoga and Pilates are excellent additions to your workout as well. Here are some exercises you can do at home to help target certain areas:

Some suggestions to help you gain weight:

1)Add healthy calories to your menu. Start breakfast with a slice of whole-wheat toast and peanut butter.
2)Trail mixes, nuts, dried fruits, and protein bars are healthy high-caloric snacks.
3)Drink healthy beverages such as milk and fruit juice. Avoid sweet drinks that add no nutritional value.
4)Choose the healthy option every time. Avoid fried foods. Eat larger portions of healthier foods such as baked potatoes, chicken, fish, etc.
5)Follow the food pyramid guidelines and make sure that you include all the major food groups in your diet.
6)Consume heart-healthy oils by eating olive, walnut, or canola oil in your homemade salad dressings. Add cheese and nuts to salads for additional healthy calories.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Helen asks…

If I get a bearded dragon could I feed it different types of worms instead of crickets?

I’ve already started researching but I wanted to ask if it would be okay to feed it different types for worms instead of crickets? Crickets really freak my mom out and I’m sure she would never have to take care of the dragon if I got one but she still isn’t that crazy about having them in the house. Can someone tell me if this is okay or is this a big no no? Thanks for the help!

weight loss cardiff answers:

First, don’t listen to lara M. Pinkie mice and fruits should be weekly to montly treats, not something given very often or consisting of 100% of a dragons diet. Surely hers won’t be alive much longer. You can feed it many types of worms instead of crickets. When they are young, I would just stick though w/ small crickets and wax worms as the tough shell of mealworms and others can be extremly hard for a young beardie to digest. Mealworms can cause serious problems for young dragons so there’s no need to risk it. Once your dragon gets large enough, which doesn’t take too long, it can start taking larger worms and silk worms are the most nutritious worms that you can give a dragon. They are also quite large so you will only need to give your dragon a few in each sitting. As they get older, you’re going to switch to a large majority of salads over insects anyway. Just tell your mom that it’s only for about 4-6 months that you would probably need crickets. After that you should be able to stick w/ worms (silk, super, butter, wax, etc)

Lisa asks…

How many wax worms to feed my fire belly newt?

I have tried feeding my newt a few different foods (bloodworm, (both frozen and fresh) and frozen tubifex worm) but she wouldn’t eat them, so i bought some wax worms in the hope that they might encourage her to eat, this worked and she ate one, i know it says to feed as much as she will eat in 15minutes but she wouldn’t eat more than one, i was just wondering if it’d be best if i gave her around 3 a day, one in morning, mid afternoon and evening since she wont eat more than one at a time?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Wax worms are very high in fats and should not be offered as a long-term or staple diet.

Allow her one a day unit she is “plump” and also offer her small earthworms [nightcrawlers] and Phoenix [calci-] worms as a healthier alternative.


Sharon asks…

How many earth worms should I feed my RES turtle a day?

Yes I know I shouldn’t only be feeding him worms, but he likes Em them most. He does eat pellets here and then tho but how many worms should feed him a day?

weight loss cardiff answers:

If it’s the main part of the diet, as much as he can eat in about 5 minutes. I’m guessing that’s at most 2 worms chopped up finely, close to the pellet size.

As you are only using the pellets as a supplement, I would suggest you add a bit of plant protein into your turtles diet as well (unless he’s young, as in under 4-5 inches, in which case he’ll probably turn his nose up at plants anyway.). If he’s young, then it won’t make a difference for awhile, but as they get older, turtles need more plant protein in their diets.
