Carol asks…


anyone have any quick tips for quick weightloss? any foods i can eat/ drinkk??

weight loss cardiff answers:

Weight loss tip 1: Decide how much weight you need to lose – Most people start their weight loss journey by claiming to be xyz kilos overweight. This isn’t a healthy way to project or aim for weight loss. Calculate your desired weight against your height by using reliable methods like the BMI, and set a healthy weight loss target. This is often half the battle won.

Weight loss tip 2: Time management – This is quite often overlooked. Decide which part of your day will be dedicated to exercise, when in the week you will stock up on groceries, and when you will do the cooking – all within your current work and home life routine. If you don’t do this now, your days will be rushed and unplanned, and you won’t be able to sustain your weight loss efforts.

Weight loss tip 3: Stock your kitchen – Keep your house well-stocked with fruits, vegetables, healthy meats, grains, cereals, spices, and flavourers. Follow our tricks to healthy cooking, cooking vegetables for the week, and low-fat cooking posts to understand how best you can stock your kitchen with healthy and delicious ingredients. All of this will go into helping the next step – cooking healthy meals at home.

Weight loss tip 4: Eat healthy homecooked meals – Whether it’s you who’s cooking, a family member, or house help, ensure that every one practises healthy cooking methods, and ingredients. Ask any person who’s lost weight the healthy way, and you will always hear about how healthy homecooked meals were a big reason behind it. Use less oil, low salt, fresh produce, and you’ll start seeing results in no time.

Weight loss tip 5 : Start a cardio + weights workout – A healthy weight loss programme is incomplete without a good exercise routine, and weight training mixed with cardio is the best way to lose weight. Of course, variations and forms exist, but any workout that stresses on muscle tone and increased heart rate will always help you lose weight and keep it off. You can either start a home workout today, or rely on gyms for fitness training.

Weight loss tip 6: Alter your snacking habits . Set those French fries aside, skip that aerated drink, and ban those unhealthy deep fried samosas. Explore the healthy snack world and you will find several appetisers, party snacks, movie snacks and meal accompaniments that’ll satisfy every craving of yours.

Weight loss tip 7: Have at least one active hobby – It isn’t sufficient to rely on just 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity per day. Moving from bed to office chair, and back to bed, isn’t a healthy way to live. Buy a motion sensor gaming console that lets you enjoy social games with friends and family, plan weekend trips, clean your house once a week, dance, play sports, the list is endless. Get out of the coffee shop and dining table rut, and you’ll have fun along with the healthy weight loss

Weight loss tip 9: Drink plenty of water – You’ve known that your body relies heavily on water for all important bodily functions, and yet you skimp on drinking adequate quantities of water every day. Well, it’s time to stop that. Check out some exciting ways to make water interesting and you’ll be packing it away in no time. Do not forget to carry a water bottle to your workout, and take a few sips after every 2-3 minutes of exercise.

Weight loss tip 10: Plan healthy vacations – Why go all the way with healthy weight loss, when one tiny vacation will just come along and topple it all? Healthy vacations aren’t impossible. Take a look at how you can eat smart on a holiday, and then at bodyweight workouts that you can carry with you wherever you go, to understand how to holiday right. Above all, remember that these are lifelong habits that’ll help you stay fit forever and not short term weight loss quickfixes

good luck.

Ruth asks…

Any weight loss experiences or tips?

I have lost 50lbs so far (after the birth of my daughter)and still would like to lose another 50. It seems that when I constantly think and obsess over the weight I gain, but if I dont I lose easier. I lost the first 50 by not sitting on my butt as much and not eating so much crap. Simple as that. Now I feel overwhelmed that I still need to lose so much more. I look better and get compliments, but still am big. Any experiences with weight loss would be great. It seems overwhelming at time, but I am tired of being fat I want to wear cute clothes again.
I have a toddler and dont have time to go to the gym or go running. I am a stay at home mom.

Top weight loss tips

Today there is too much information available on losing weight that has become more confusing and sometimes difficult to follow. It’s actually very easy to lose weight if you follow my weight loss tips.

* Be in right frame of mind
Before you can start any diet program you need to be in the right frame of mind. If you do not feel good about yourself you probably will not want to choose healthy foods. You cannot expect the act of going on a diet to make you feel better about yourself. The only way you can choose to eat a healthy diet to lose weight is if you have a positive self-image.

* Eat whole food
Top weight loss tips
Eat whole foods that are as natural as possible. When you eat whole foods that are full of nutrients your body will know how much to eat and how much not to eat. You do not have to count calories because your body is a wonderful machine.

* Eat fresh fruit
Eat at least two servings of fresh fruit every day. Choose whatever type of fruit is in season.

* Drink enough water
Drink the best weight loss supplement known to man, water. Most people do not know the difference from being hungry for food or thirsty for water. A great deal of times people eat when they should drink. Most likely you will not feel as hungry if you are getting enough water. You will be satisfying the thirst, which is confused for hunger. Water also helps you digest food better. Drinking water before you eat will help fill you up.

* Always chew your food
Always chew your food well. Chewing your food well will ensure that you get the most nutrients out of your food. Getting the most nutrients will satisfy your body therefore you will eat less. Another benefit of chewing well is that it helps aid in digestion.

* Take small meals
Eat small, frequent meals in a day. Large meals tax your digestion system, making it work harder. Taking too much time in between meals makes you hungrier for the next meal.

* Include protein at meal
Include good sources of protein at meal, chicken, fish, legumes, peanut, cottage cheese, eggs or yogurt.

* Shut off TV while eating
Shut off the TV whenever you eat – that includes meals and snacks. Studies show that we automatically eat larger portions when we snack in front of the tube, and typically those foods are high in fat and sugar, which means excess calories!

* Increase your physical activity
Increase your physical activity. Most people are over weight because of a lack of physical activity. Start walking more, bicycling, walks your dog for longer periods of time, swim, dance and leave the car at home when you can. It’s important that you choose a physical activity that you enjoy because you’ll stick with it.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Laura asks…

What is the best diet or to lose weight for diabetics?

I have to lose weight by december. I have to lose at least 20 pounds. What kind of exercise that can really shred pounds? I have no time but wants to find time. Thanks

weight loss cardiff answers:

I would highly recommend The South Beach Diet. It is all about High Glycemic Index foods, no refined sugar, and learning that a diet shouldn’t be labeled a diet but you should learn to eat as a way of life. I lost 23 lbs. On SB without incorporating exercise – when I did incorporate exercise – I lost the last 10 easily. It’s been 4 years, I still maintain a balance of eating the SB way – I have cut out sugar, white flour, processed food, sodium, and replaced everything with fresh food.

Here is my recommendation: try SB for 2 weeks, if you already exercise, then keep it up, if you don’t then don’t worry about it yet. After two weeks, see what you have accomplished, set another goal – that’s the trick – don’t look at it as having to lose 30 lbs by December. Do 5 lb. Goals and give yourself something as a reward – like a new lipstick!

Best of luck –

PS. is a great resource

Joseph asks…

Can you lose weight only eating peanut butter and vegetables?

I want to lose weight, but it’s hard for me to stick to a diet that isn’t easily available, is it possible to lose weight if I eat vegetables, and a spoon full of peanut butter 4-5 times a day? I would do yoga along with it.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Quantum Yoga is the exercise for smart people. It yields optimum output but requires minimum input. Most forms of exercise only strengthen muscles. Quantum Yoga tones the muscles, keeps internal glands and organs healthy, makes the mind keen and alert, and initiates mental and physical healing. Thousands of people have found health and vitality by embracing this practice.

Meditation keeps our mind tranquil and joyful. As a result the bodies healing process is accelerated. However, it is nearly impossible to attain optimum health of mind, body and spirit without some form of physical exercise. This is why the ancient spiritual masters incorporated various forms of exercise in their lifestyle.

Download the book and look for the postures. Follow only one rule perfectly and wait to see the results.

Sharon asks…

How can I lose weight without diet and exercise?

I don’t eat junk food,I eat pretty normal meals. I’ve been trying to cut back on the fast food,and the late night snacks. I tried exercising,but it just got annoying and tiring. I know that I cant expect much if I’m not going to do anything,but I really don’t have time to exercise and diets never work for me. WHAT CAN I DO? I need to lose 30 (or more) pounds by March! Thanks.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Yes. If you qualify, you can undergo liposuction. However, unless you change your ways, you are likely to put the weight back on. Another approach is gastric bypass. Again, this is temporary and may have serious complications.

The best approach is to simply eliminate processed and convenience food along with eliminating all forms of animal flesh, eggs, and milk. This is a permanent lifestyle change, but you do not need to count calories or be on a temporary diet. A whole foods, pure vegetarian diet is healthy and an easy way to lose weight without counting calories or extra exercise.

I lost 50 pounds easily and kept it off by eating a whole, plant based diet, eliminating most processed foods and convenience foods. This is a lifestyle change.

What is the quikest way to gain weight?

IVE BEEN TRYING TO put on weight for ages and its not working, im really slim and all my friends think im crzy for wanting to put weight on but i really really want to so wat r sum gud foods and wat is the quikest way to gain it thanx xoxo 10 PNTS FOR BEST ANSWER!!!!

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.

George asks…

How effective is water fasting in losing weight?

I am around 5’3 and weigh 110 lbs. I would really like to lose weight fast- potentially ten pounds. I have heard water fasting is both good for losing weight, and is also beneficial to gastro-intestinal health.

Is water fasting as effective as it is said to be?

weight loss cardiff answers:

You need at least 1000 calories of energy per day to support your life so where would that come from? If you don’t eat food what is your body going to burn? Well, if you don’t know the incredibly obvious answer to that question, it’s you. Your body will burn you. It will literally consume itself and that’s a very fast way to lose weight. Of course there’s a problem with consuming yourself…it’s starvation and you’ll eventually die. And, before you die you’ll get terribly sick and before than you’ll have myriad negative health symptoms, etc. So, water fasting is fast but it’s also really, really bad for your health.

If you’re serious about water fasting, which isn’t good for anything including your GI tract, you should stop and reconsider. You have nothing to gain except speed of fat loss. Fat you will regain eventually because you haven’t really done anything except starve yourself. Here’s the best way to lose fat and it’s approved by the US National Institute of Health…the people doctors listen to in the US.

Eat varied, wholesome, and high quality foods such that your daily caloric intake is about equal to your daily caloric burn while keeping your macronutrient ratios at about 55/25/20 (%calories from carbs/fats/protein). Only slight changes should be made in the macronutrient ratios to accommodate the extreme demands of special activities such as athletics or inactivity due to illness.

Note: Here are the details in case you’re interested. —> and here —>

You get to make the food choices (no supplements without a doctor’s recommendation) based on culture, available foods, personal preferences, your resources, food alergies, etc. However, the words “varied”, “wholesome”, and “high quality” are important. And, you should consume your food in 4-6 daily meals with healthy snacks between such that you’re nourishing yourself every two hours when awake.

To burn body fat, simply decrease portion sizes of your food such that your daily intake is 500 calories less than your daily burn rate. That should result in a loss rate of one pound per week.

Tracking your calories is crucial to your fat loss and maintenance. Tracking your macronutrients is crucial to your health. And, of course, it is implied that you will learn how to read labels, weigh portions, do food lookups, enter data, interpret data, etc., if you don’t already know how. It’s all easy stuff and, if you persist, it will eventually become such a routine that you’ll be able to enter data from your cell, know what your daily nutritional requirements are real time by the hour, interpret labels and estimate recipes, plan cheats, and, best of all, not have to rely on the scale to tell you if you’re losing, gaining, or maintaining.

Good luck and good health!!
