How to use cayenne capsules to most effeciently aid weight loss?

I already have lost weight with diet and exercise but I’ve hit a plateau and need a little boost. When and how often should I take cayenne capsules to reap the full benefits for weight loss? Any other plateau-busting tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!:)

weight loss cardiff answers:

Don’t take them at all, all you need to lose weight is a clean diet, cardio and possibly some resistance training. If you can’t lose more weight then up the game, there is no quick easy way around it. Don’t get dragged into the suckers game of pills and bogus supplements. Good luck

Chris asks…

Question about Raw food diet?

What are the benefits of a raw food diet? How will it improve one’s health? What do you eat on this diet? What do you do when you go out with friends to a restaurant or gathering? Thanks.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Raw food diets are based on the simple fact that nature provides your food encapsulated in it’s natural state – raw – and it’s man’s application of fire to it very recently on the evolutionary scale that shifted our perceptions of what food is.

Cooking food, according to raw food philosophy, is unneccesary- your body was shaped through millions and millions of years of evolution, primarily from herbivorous creatures, and only in the last two million years did meat slowly enter our primitive diets, and even then only the last 500,000-200,000 years or so has mankind been bright enough to be successful at hunting, to use fire and tools to their advantage, and to eat meat frequently.

Human beings are animals as well, and animals eat their foods raw. Raw foods contain all the living, vital enzymes and phytonutrients that exist within them. Cooking breaks down nutritional content, kills off the living enzymes that make digestion easier, and kills bacteria – most of which would actually be beneficial to you!

By becoming phobic of bacteria, we’ve actually harmed ourselves more than we realize. Raw food can still be washed and rinsed so there’s nothing gruesome on it, but you don’t need to cook it. Your body builds strength and immunity by ingesting bacteria. People wonder why modern kids are allergic to dust and everything else under the sun – perhaps it’s directly related to how we coat everything with antibacterial lotion and spray and boil the heck out of food to make sure there isn’t a single pathogen crawling on it.

Typically raw food diets are linked to dramatic physical transformations – weight loss, glowing, shiny hair and clearer skin, increase in energy, changes in mood and behavior (for the positive!), decrease in digestion problems (faster digestion, less gas or problems, etc.). Decrease in incidence of cancer, decrease in blood pressure and cholesterol.

I for one enjoy eating raw foods, I enjoy eating food in the state that nature intended for them to be. I have realized that cooking food to the point where it’s unrecognizable from it’s on the vine state is an addiction – the salt, the sugar, the herbs and spices – they all make you want it more and more.

Strawberries are so much sweeter now that I don’t overdose on cookies and cakes and all sorts of processed garbage all day. Natural fruit sugars taste just fine. Celery is high in sodium, it tastes salty again for me, while beforehand I had so much salt in processed foods that I literally had to even salt bread to taste any flavor whatsoever from it.

You will learn to appreciate the goodness and vitality that is in natural, whole food without feeling it has to be zapped and altered beyond it’s natural state somehow. And that’s benefit enough – if you lose some weight or feel better, that’s all the better for you, right?

I’m not a raw foodist, but I eat quite a large portion of my diet raw. It’s kept me thin and helped me bounce back after giving birth to my pre-pregnancy weight, and I’ve been the same weight since I was 17 years old, which is a miracle in itself that I credit to a high quality vegan diet.

I’m vegan and I like steamed vegetables and I cook about 60% of my meals to some extent. But raw foods are great for you, they’re just like nature intended them to be going down into your stomach, so don’t be fooled. You don’t need to be paranoid about germs – in fact worry about germaphobes more than the germs themselves.

P.S. If you want to eat meat on a raw food diet, be careful – most meat in the grocery store has been dead for WEEKS as it’s been shipped around from slaughter house to packing plant to grocery store. While three hundred years ago you could slaughter your own livestock and probably be none the sicker eating something raw, I wouldn’t eat the pathogen-infested meat in stores now.

Obviously, there’s only so far that you can harden your immune system against what you put in your stomach, and I seriously feel nauseous even putting my all-plant groceries down on the conveyor belt after someone put down a blood-soaked tray of ribs beforehand… Meat can cross-contaminate everything in sight.

George asks…

why does diet food seem so nasty?

I need to loose 3 stone, But every diet plan i have looked at seems to be many foods i don’t like!! I don’t eat fish (apart from tinned tuna) i don’t like chickpeas and i don’t eat any red meat. apart from eating rice, chicken, fruit and vegetables there is little foods i will eat. Plus i have the added problem of not being able to eat many acidic foods as it aggravates me (i suffer with serious heartburn) which was the initial reason i put on weight as eating things like bread and crisps seemed to stop the pain. I want to do more exercises which i have a plan that has been given by a fitness instructor. If there is any foods that anyone can suggest i would be most grateful as i am really finding this diet thing hard to find whats right for me
doctor has given me omeprazole (not sure of the spelling) for the acid which keeps it under control until i have ANY acidic foods

weight loss cardiff answers:

Many diet foods are less appealing than other foods because, let’s face it, natural fats and sugars just taste good. And when you take them out of food or eat only foods that are low in these elements, you don’t get the same kick.

If you eat a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, I believe that the best way to go about having a healthy diet is to include, in appropriate portions, natural fats and sugars. If you try to strip these out of your diet, you’ll end up always feeling unsatisfied and you’ll just load up on calories from other things. Having a smaller portion of something with normal fat or sugar, along with a salad and an apple or whatever, is more likely to leave you feeling satisfied. There are books out there by people who agree with this view. You might poke around a bookstore or the Internet and see if you can find any by people with appropriate credentials.

In any event, good luck.

David asks…

raw food diet??

my doctor said i need to lose 10 pounds to be alittle more healthy, but recently, ive been having some personal issues and gained some, should i do the raw food diet??

weight loss cardiff answers:

The raw food diet is not like the Atkins diet or similar regimes. It’s about a lifestyle choice whereby you choose to eat mainly raw, unprocessed, uncooked foods.

Modern Western (cooked) diets contain un-naturally high levels of sugar, salt and unhealthy fats.
This is why we have an epidemic of obesity and diabetes.

To lose weight and be more healthy you need to kick any bad eating habits and introduce some regular exercise into your life. I’m not talking about going to the gym twice a day, just simple things like walking to the store instead of driving -taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

The more you get into the habit of doing these things the easier and more instinctive it becomes.

As for the raw food diet, it’s a great way to reach your optimum weight – as long as you don’t lapse back into bad eating habits.

I went approx. 50% raw just a few months ago and I’ve lost about 10 pounds without even trying. I feel much healthier, have loads more energy and no longer crave junk food.

How can i gain muscle and lose weight at the same time without equipment?

I need to lose weight quick. Before i get into college.
PS: I don’t want to pay money.

You can loose a ton of weight really quick by doing a lot cardio such as running, biking, swimming and pretty much anything that gets your heart rate up and makes you sweat! Do it for 30 mins or more for 5 days a week. I promise you will loose weight.

Also, you should do it for yourself to be healthy and feel your best! Good luck!

Mark asks…

Do men lose weight quicker than females?

Hubby and I want to go on a diet to lose some weight. Thing is do men really lose weight quicker than females and why?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Men can lose weight faster than women for a number of reasons:
1. Men have more haemoglobin, so when exercising, more oxygen can travel to the respiring cells, and they can burn more calories that way.
2. Men have less fat storage capacity- very effecient in weight loss while dieting.
3. Men don’t eat to overcome emotional obstacles:D

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Laura asks…

What other exercises should I add to my routine for weight loss?

Now that my term at university is coming to an end for summer I’ve decided to focus more on my weight loss as it has been the last thing on my mind recently. I’ve been more concerned with writing essays and revising and getting some sleep than going swimming 3-4 times a week because I feel it is more important. I’ve only been able to keep on top of doing some exercises to strengthen one of the muscles in my thigh to help my knee.

Whilst I am off over summer I plan to swim twice a week (Until I go on holiday where I hope to go swimming up to five times a week and do sets of 10 lengths of a 50m pool at a time), cycle 3-4 times a week for up to 3 hours, 30 minutes of Pilates. When I go back to university I am getting a year long gym membership and joining the cycling society and the swimming society.

For my diet I have cut out sugary foods, eating more fresh foods, eating more salads without salad dressing (Love salad without dressing), drinking sparkling water with cordial instead of fizzy diet drinks, drinking fruit tea and honey instead of a hot chocolate, and cutting down on the amount of pasta and diary in my diet.

Any exercise suggestions would be great. I want to try as many different exercises as possibly whilst I am off. Any suggestions for snacks to take when I got cycling would be great.
I am aiming to lose 15 pounds before I go back in September and the to continue losing weight until I’m about 145 pounds or less as I haven’t decided on a goal weight, I am 5ft 7 and no idea of my exact weight, last time I checked it was 165 pounds. I just want to lose weight until I feel like a comfortable size as I might not like how I look at 130 but 145 seems like a good start.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Addition by subtraction here.

Focus on just a few exercises that have a high metabolic effect.

So, focus on Squats, Push Ups, and Seated Cable Rows.



Because crunches and ab work burn zero calories.

Good Luck


Carol asks…

How do I maintain weight loss after orthognathic surgery?

I had orthognathic surgery about 4 weeks ago and I lost about 20 lbs. Losing weight was neither here nor there for me, but now that I’ve lost it, I’ve realized this is a weight I’d like to maintain. Having the surgery means I haven’t eaten anything solid for a while. Also that my stomach has shrunken a lot from lack of food. I would like to know if it’s possible (When I can eat solid food again) to get on track to healthy eating while still being able to maintain maybe at least half my weight loss?

weight loss cardiff answers:

That’s a great question, and I’m glad you enjoyed losing some pounds because I know that’s very common when you get this type of surgery. What I’ve found out from my Husband regarding this situation is he had a friend that also wanted to keep off this weight. What he did was actually pretty surprising… He stayed away from Low-Fat diet foods. It sounds crazy I’m sure, but come to find out, that really helped him to maintain the weight that he still has now. Trying to go on a Low Fat diet still makes us fatter and addicted to sugar. That’s what keeps the pounds on! If you like eating sandwiches, it’s best to eat 100% whole wheat w/ Romaine Lettuce, Do walk… As often as you can throughout the week. If you work at a place of business they have parking, park farther out than you normally park so you can get the quick exercise in. For more tips that will help you keep that weight off, go view my blog/website source, and If you have any questions, feel free to email me at Hope this Helps and God Bless

Michael asks…

which causes more weight loss- throwing up after you eat or the use of laxatives?

I know its wrong but im just curious from the people who have actually tried both who have had their temporary weight loss and who actually got skinny because of it. Ive heard laxatives dont make u any skinnier they just show a smaller number on the scale.

weight loss cardiff answers:

You might want to check out this blog. They just started it but there is a store and they update the content regularly. Maybe you are able to find some programs through the store to help you with your weight loss problem. Good luck!
