Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Lisa asks…

What are some really good diet and exercise plans?

I’m very much in need to lose weight. I’m 19 years old, 5 foot 9 inches tall, size 12. I do not know my weight at the moment for the lack of having a scale at home but I know I’m around 140LBS or a little over that. I got weighed at the doctors a month ago and it was 142LBS so I’m going with that.

I have quite a chubby stomach and could lose weight in my thighs as well. It’s where most of my fat is. What are some good diet plans I should look into and what are some good exercises I could do to tone out my body more? Any advice would be great.

The healthiest diet in the world also tends to drive your weight below what’s considered normal or average. The life expectancy and vigorous health of older people in these populations surprises even the most educated and experienced medical professionals. Demographic studies by many scientists over several decades have repeatedly shown that a “whole plant based diet” promotes health and longevity. A lifelong vegetarian eating a balanced diet and getting a moderate level of activity can expect to live a healthy and vigorous life that is at least 7 years longer than most Americans.

The rates of obesity, cancer, diabetes, vascular disease in these populations are many times less than in populations eating like the Standard American Diet (SAD). SAD most often includes excess animal based foods, refined oils, refined carbohydrates, caffeine, and food additives.

In contrast, the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine has defined the Four New Food Groups:

+ Vegetables – Especially dark leafy greens (kale, collard, chard) and colorful vegetables.

+ Legumes such as peas, beans, and lentils.

+ Whole grains such as brown rice and quinoa.

+ Whole fruit and not processed fruit drinks and other commercial drinks.

If you eat animal based food products such as meat (pork, beef, fish, and poultry) and dairy (milk, eggs, cheese, yogurt, cream, mayonnaise, and so on), you should eat these foods in great moderation and infrequently. If you completely give up animal based foods products, make sure you have adequate B vitamins, D vitamins, and Omega-3 fats.

I lost 90 pounds without feeling hungry or deprived. Check out the books that I list from your local library for further information.

In terms of exercise, you will want to perform aerobic exercise for 30-60 minutes most days. This is any exercise that moves major muscle groups repetitively and continuously causing you to be slightly out of breath. I like swimming and bicycling. Some people prefer dance, running, or even jumping rope. Since the workout of your heart and lungs is the same for any given heart rate, just pick activities that you enjoy and that you can easily fit into your daily routine. For example, I often stopped at the gym before work for a 50 minute swim. It became part of my routine and part of my commute.

A program of free weight training is also very helpful. One good book on the specific exercises is:

Body for Life: 12 Weeks to Mental and Physical Strength by Bill Phillips and Michael D’Orso (Jun 10, 1999)

The exercise program is well explained and there is a lot of motivational text. However, the advice on diet is typical of what you would hear from trainers in your local gym. It’s not based upon the best scientific research. Skip the sections on diet and especially the protein drink recommendations. High protein diets are hard on the liver and kidneys and can have long-term health consequences.

By the way, I lost 90 pounds of fat on a pure vegetarian diet, and my health and feeling of well being have never been better. I’m attempting to avoid the vascular disease that is common on both sides of my family.

Exercises that can easily be done in a dorm room?

I’ve gained like 50lbs my freshman year of college. I have started dieting, but was wondering if anyone knew any good exercises that could be done in a small dorm room. Most of my free time is during the middle of the night, and I can’t run very well due to a knee injury, but I really, really want to lose weight. It would be especially helpful if they were exercises that could be done while studying or watching tv on my laptop.

weight loss cardiff answers:

At my daughter’s college they can go to the pool and gym for free.

Also she has her wii there and does wii fit.

You can also do exercise DVDs.

My daughter also took a karate class as part of her classes.

I want to lose 20 pounds in 19 days is that possible? What diet plan should I follow?

I am going to Florida on March 19, 2007. I weigh 120 IBS. What is the best thing I should do? I want to lose weight in my stomach and mainly in my thighs!

I would like website that have free weight loss diet plans online or your personal plan as well!


weight loss cardiff answers:

To lose weight successfully,you should know:

Low Fat Foods DON’T WORK………
You cannot lose weight using Low Fat Diets. Low fat foods have been popular for more than 15 years, but yet our society is getting more overweight as each year passes. This fact alone should tell you that eating a purely low fat menu is not the answer to losing weight.

Low Calorie Diets DON’T WORK……..
You won’t lose weight using a Low Calorie Dieting Plan either. In fact, eating low calories is the worst thing that you can do to your body, since that will only slow down your body’s fat burning engine and ruin all chances of losing weight (low calorie diets may allow a few pounds of weight loss for the first few days, but then after that all weight loss comes to a halt — known as a dieting plateau). You can never get slim by starving yourself.

Low Carb Plans DON’T WORK…….
You’ll probably find it extremely difficult to get slim using a Low Carb Dieting Plan. Low carb diets have recently become popular over the last couple years, but the problem with low carb menus is that they are too strict and TOO HARD TO FOLLOW for average people. Low carb menus tend to rob your body of too much energy (carbohydrates) and make it nearly impossible to remain on the program for very long. This is why so many dieters find it difficult to follow a strict low carbohydrate menu.

In fact,the food that you eat can either make you THIN or FAT!!!

GO to the source below,,

It will tell you the whole secret of weight loss and tell you how to lose weight by eating Chicken,Fish Filet,Cottage Cheese,sandwich and so on.You can find weight loss is so easy and so happy!!!!!

Paul asks…

What are some good websites for weight loss?

I’m not looking for diet plans, just websites that encourage and inspire weight loss.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Below website teaches you all about how foods affect your body making it easier to be thin. It teaches how to develop new, good habits so staying thin will not take hardly any any effort.

It has a whole different way of dealing with this since current teachings of our society on this has made obesity (according to Atlantic Monthly) the #1 health problem in the world replacing hunger and infectious disease. Isn’t that terrible that while many cannot afford to buy enough food, our extra money is killing us and ruining our health?

John asks…

What is the best weight loss pill or exercise routine?

I am almost 6 months after giving birth. I had a cesarian section and that was my first child. I breastfed up until a few weeks ago, and all I did was gain weight from it; not that I mind because giving my son the best start in life is well worth it. I gained a whopping 65 pounds while pregnant and I was 130, 5’4 before I was pregnant and I have not lost 1 pound since. So, I’m still 195. I eat extremely healthy, I do not eat meat, only fish. I do take anti-depressants to help out with my PP depression. What is the best weight loss pill to help me? I know that no pill is a magic pill without exercise and proper diet, but I have tried OxyElite Pro in the past pre pregnancy but I never really had to lose weight so it never did anything. What are good weight loss supplements and a good workout plan that is realistic with a having a baby. I’d love to lose atleast 50 pounds by summer. Thank you

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Richard asks…

How do Kafka in Metamorphosis and Albert Camus in The Stranger show alienation and absurdity of existence?

Hey guys I was looking for some direction and a little help on an essay question. Any help would be much appreciated! Below is the question:

How do both Franz Kafka in The Metamorphosis and Albert Camus in The Stranger portray the alienation and absurdity of existence in the 20th century? Cite specific examples from their novels. How do Jacques Maritain in “Christian Humanism” and Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Cost of Discipleship attempt to offer Christian alternatives to these visions?


weight loss cardiff answers:

I would say Camus only shows that those traits can exist in the man who makes his own rules about how HE will live it can not be extended to the human race in general.The life of a man can be shown to have been meaningfull and have a purpose.This what we are supposed to learn before we find fault with life itself If I set out just to look after my own satisfaction then by all means it would be O K to simply shoot someone just because I felt like it Relativism is absurd.It is obvious that it was wrong to shoot the man on the beach but not to the relativist he thinks you can do whatever he feels like The world which ran on those rules would be like a highway where we all drive our car by our own rules

Joseph asks…

Do most democrats believe there should be a limit to social welfare programs?

Do most democrats understand the dangers of entitlement?

“A well-respected German historian has a radical new theory to explain a nagging question: Why did average Germans so heartily support the Nazis and Third Reich? Hitler, says Goetz Aly, was a “feel good dictator,” a leader who not only made Germans feel important, but also made sure they were well cared-for by the state. To do so, he gave them huge tax breaks and introduced social benefits that even today anchor the society. He also ensured that even in the last days of the war not a single German went hungry. Despite near-constant warfare, never once during his 12 years in power did Hitler raise taxes for working class people. He also—in great contrast to World War I—particularly pampered soldiers and their families, offering them more than double the salaries and benefits that American and British families received. As such, most Germans saw Nazism as a “warm-hearted” protector, says Aly, author of the new book “Hitler’s People’s State: Robbery, Racial War and National Socialism” and currently a guest lecturer at the University of Frankfurt”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Limit how?

You mean by not helping out our most vulnerable citizens in this nation?

Because if you do, then that’s an America I don’t want to be a part of.

Steven asks…

What Do You Think This Quote Means?

“We must learn to regard people less in the light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer.” ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer

I saw this quote the other day and sometimes I have a hard time figuring out the meaning. I figured getting others opinions would be a great idea.

So what do you think that quote is talking about or what it means?

weight loss cardiff answers:

In simple terms the quote means:

“Don’t judge or think too much about what people do or don’t do. Instead of doing that, think about what they may have suffered that makes them act the way they do.”

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

John asks…

Do I have to constantly be running to lose weight?

So, the big thing is that in order to lose weight, running is the best thing to do. All the weight loss articles talk about how you should run for a certain amount of miles or for a certain amount of time, but I can only do very little right now.

I’ve been using the track in my college’s gym to try to lose weight. I can only jog once around before I get physically exhausted. Then, I walk a lap, then I return to jogging again for another lap, and this routine continues for about 45 minutes. I was wondering if by doing this jog-walk-jog-walk routine 5 times a week will help me lose weight.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Physical activity is much less important to weight loss than the way you eat. Physical fitness and exercise are important for overall health, but your diet is the largest contributor to your weight.

In terms of using exercise to support weight loss in addition to healthy eating habits, running is not the best thing to do. Your exercise should include a variety of things, not just cardio, if you want the most bang for your buck.

What you are doing works very well for improving cardiovascular fitness, the combination of running and walking is typically the best way for a beginner to improve.

Carol asks…

If I start running around 5 miles a day, am I going to lose weight or gain muscle?

Basically my question is: Am I going to lose weight from running, or am I gonna gain weight from the muscle I may gain?
I read that you don’t gain muscle from just running alone. Is that true? I need to condition for cross country if I’m trying out next year but I don’t wanna be big and bulky and man-looking and weigh 10 pounds more from all the muscle running might give

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you run five miles everyday you will lose weight. You don’t really gain muscle from running. Your legs will build up more muscular endurance and some strength but that’s it. Welcome to the painful world of running. I’ve been doing track and cross country for 6 years now. I don’t have much trouble falling asleep
