George asks…

can somebody tell me about the diet of worms?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Here is your historical answer:

1521, most famous of the imperial diets held at Worms, Germany. It was opened in Jan., 1521, by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. After disposing of other business, notably the question of the Reichsregiment, the diet took up the question of the recalcitrant behavior of Martin Luther. Charles was induced to summon Luther, who arrived at Worms under a safe-conduct on Apr. 16. At the diet Luther was asked if he would retract his teachings condemned by the pope. After a day’s meditation he refused. For a week various theologians argued with him, but he would not retire from his ground. According to tradition Luther ended his defense on Apr. 18 with the words, “Here I stand. I cannot do otherwise. God help me. Amen.” Finally, on Apr. 26, the emperor, seeing that the dispute was fruitless, ordered Luther to leave the city. He was formally declared an outlaw in the Edict of Worms (May 25); the lines of the Reformation were thereby hardened.

Lizzie asks…

Did Martin Luther realy go on a diet of worms?

thats committment!

see Betty B on:

it’s pharkin hilarious!!

weight loss cardiff answers:

He went to the Diet of Worms.

A diet was a general assembly of former states of the Roman Empire. This “diet” is not a food discipline.

Carol asks…

what is Diet of Worms from the 1500’s?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Ap Euro huh? Fun… Well the diet of worms is after Martin Luther posts his 95 theses and is summoned to a debate with John Eck. Basically they refute each other’s ideas. Later he attends the edict of worms which is when they sentence him to banishment and they excomunicate him from the catholic church for contadicting the policies of the church. His ideas become very popular and he starts the lutheran church.

I live a healthy life and before this summer I was 111lbs for a few years.

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you want to lose weight really quickly the best option is a juice fast diet, where you basically replace all your meals with juices. Quite extreme, and definitely not something you want to do long term, but for a quick fix solution it does work.

Steven asks…

How do I lose 2 pounds of weight each week without alot of excercise?

I need to lose weight for a special date in 2 weeks. I need serious help.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Count calories. Its simple if you eat pre-packaged food. Stick to 1200 a day. Eat things like healthy choice frozen meals and prepacked snacks and it should be a sinch. I do it all the time and works really quick. I lost 30 pounds in 12 weeks after having my last child.

John asks…

How do I lose at least 5 pounds in 2 weeks?

Im 13 and i weight 200 pounds. I want and need to lose weight before school starts which is in 2 weeks and a day. I want to have a figure when I go back. Help!

weight loss cardiff answers:

I can definitely help. First and foremost, you have to have a clean diet. Without a proper diet, you will have a hard time losing weight. Diet makes up roughly 90% of the battle. Don’t be that person at the gym who busts their tail off yet allows the hard work to go down the drain b/c they eat like crap.

That being said, what foods to eat?

Stick to a more lean protein/green veggie diet. Lean protein sources include chicken breast, turkey breast, fish, egg whites, lean beef such as sirloin, cottage cheese etc. The majority of your carbs should come from leafy greens such as asparagus, broccoli, kale, salad etc. Green veggies are very low in carb, full of fiber and are slower digesting.

Stay away from refined carbs. Refined carbs are your white breads, white pasta etc. Eat whole grains but in moderation such as brown rice. Even though brown rice is superior to white rice, you still need to monitor your carbs so have these grains more on workout days for energy and adjust accordingly.

Workout wise, a combination of free weights and cardio 3-4 times a week is optimal. Weight lifting helps burn more calories at rest.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

George asks…

need help in diet plan for weight loss?

Hi, I am from India and I am planning to loose body fat. I was going to gym regularly but did not see much results since I did not change my diet. I am from south India and my meal consists of rice and dal. I get lost when I see the diet plans.

1. Some tell that carbs are necessary but some tell to avoid rice? Why is carbs necessary and what is the best food for carbohydrate ?

2. About saturated and unsaturated dat. Do we need fat while reducing body fat and if necessary what should be the quantity?

3. What should be my pre workout meal and post workout meal? I am a vegetarian and I am a software engineer so that make my job sedentary.

4. Also since I go to the gym in the evenings (7pm), and I have my lunch at 2PM, i will be feeling hungry by the time I plan to go to gym and this makes me to eat something @ 6PM after which either I do not feel like going to gym or I skip my dinner.

What should I do for all the points mentioned above. I am a vegetarian and take eggs..

weight loss cardiff answers:

I hope these tips would help you.:)

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.

David asks…

Successful weight loss plan?

I currently weigh 70kg, and I want to try lose 10 kg in 8 weeks. Is that possible? If so, how? If you have any great workout plans for me and diet plans, please email me at

I have a gym membership so I have all the great equipment readily available to me, all I need is the knowledge, help? Please?
I’m looking for serious answers.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
you don’t eat wheat then you don’t eat all those sticky, fatty goey
cakes, you don’t eat junk food, and you don’t eat biscuits. But your
diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
calculate points or to buy special meals or plans.
Gym Routine for Toning Up & Weight Loss

Working out at the gym can improve your fitness level, develop muscle
tone and help you lose weight if follow a plan. Outline your course of
action to include the five components of a balanced fitness routine
and your time will be well spent.

The Five Components
The five components to a balanced routine include cardiovascular
endurance, strength training, flexibility, core-strengthening and
balance. You do not need to incorporate all five elements into your
training every time you workout, but you will want to make sure they
have been included during the course of several days. You should
include cardiovascular workouts three to five times per week and
strength training twice a week, that is a good schedule to start with.

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: Cardio
On these three days, you will want to use a cardio machine at your
gym. A good choice for beginner through advanced-level fitness is the
elliptical machine. Other options are the stationary bikes,
stair-steppers and treadmills. Your cardiovascular workout will last
for 20 minutes. Start out going at about 50 percent of the maximum
exertion you are capable of — or level five out of 10. Stay at this
moderate level for two minutes, then increase either your speed,
resistance or incline to make your exertion more difficult, or level
six for one minute. Continue increasing your level of difficulty for
one minute intervals until you reach 90 percent of your maximum, then
return back to level six for one minute. When you are on your last
interval cycle, or when you hit 19 minutes, give 100 percent effort
for one minute. Then take it down to a level four for your last
minute. You will want to stay at this lower exertion level long enough
to return to as close to your normal breathing as possible before
ending your cardio workout.

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: Resistance
You want to make sure to include all of you major muscle groups over
the course of the week if you do not include them all daily. The major
groups are back, chest, legs, abdominal, biceps, triceps and
shoulders. Remember to work opposing muscle groups such as chest and
back. If there is a chance you might miss a day, try to include all
the major groups each time you workout. Also, alternate between using
free-weights and machines for even greater variety and faster results.
Do three sets of weight-bearing exercises per muscle group. The first
set should be heavy, but comfortable. For you that might be a bicep
curl that weighs 10 lbs.; do 12 repetitions. The second set should be
heavier than the first so try 12 lbs.; do 10 repetitions. The third
set should be your heaviest and it should be difficult to finish; do
eight reps.

Tuesday and Thursday
Some trainers will tell you that interval training burns the most
calories and others will tell you hard and fast cardio is the best
training to lose weight. Do both and you wont have to worry. Pick your
machine; you will want to work out at an exertion level around
75-percent of your maximum ability for a solid 40 to 45 minutes with a
five minute cool down at about a level five out of 10. These are good
days to do abdominal exercises if you did not have time on your
interval days. Use a stability ball to do 25 crunches, four times, for
instance. Spend at least 10 minutes after your workout stretching.

Saturday and Sunday
Take Saturday to enjoy an activity with your family or to have fun.
Make it something where you will get your heart-rate up, but you might
not consider it a workout. Consider roller-skating, dog-walking or
bicycling. And on Sunday, let your body rest. Your body needs a day to
recuperate so that you can continue your fast-track towards meeting
your fitness goals.

Donna asks…

weight loss!!!!!!?

i am 14 years old and i want to lose weight cuz im over weight i am 90kg, and that it alot 4 my age so plz can some one give me some advice and a weight loss plan. and also tell me how to stick to my plan .
just to inform u i have a big problem , that i cant stop eatiing sweets.. somebody plzzzzzzzzzzzzz help me
thank you very, very, very much

weight loss cardiff answers:

To achieve any weight loss, you really need to excercise and eat an overall healthy diet that consist of complex carbohydrates (whole wheat foods that would be great for fiber and needed nutrients), lean protein to help build muscles and repair your body, and good amounts of fat for energy and needed nutrients the body needs that your body cannot create on its own.
By making a few adjustments to your current diet (such as switching to water in place of juice and soda, etc, snacking on fruits and raw veggies instead, chosing whole grain products instead of enriched foods, etc) can also help you to shed some weight (depending on how your current diet is). Also cooking healthier (using a cook spray, switching to olive oil, grilling and steaming more often than pan frying and deep frying, etc.) And to help lessen your sweets consumption, try at least limiting yourself to only 2 or 3 a day. And try having healthier sweets like yogurt, all fruit frozen bars (some are only 90 calories each, and with calories so low, that a treat you could possible have each day), jello, 90 calorie or lower pudding cups, fruit, and low calorie ice cream bars (such as skinny cow, weight watchers, etc.)
If you try interval cardio training and some weight lifting/resistance training, not only will you lose weigh, but you will also help your body become more leaner and tone looking and your core will become stronger.
It is good that you are thinking about trying some types of cardio that you may like such as walking, biking and skating. These new habits introducted into your life will help to intially burn soem calories, but you will need to also make sure you eat healthy. Also try to change you your cardio from time to time to challenge yourself and to avoid hitting a plateau such as jogging, hiking, swimming.
Try doing some ab work and don’t forget to work out your obliques (your “love handles”)
Also because muscle does weigh more than fat, you may be heavier essentially, but leaner too. Eventually the more muscles you will build, the more weight you can burn. More muscles will help you burn more calories at rest. And then eventually the fat/weight will come off… But everything takes time. Remember, it is possible to be leaner and stronger, but weight more. But don’t give up and stay motivated… We all hit plateus. Also remember, that every one is a different individual and that we all lose weight from different places at different times. Your body choses when it is time, just be patience.
And please note that if you try to lose a lot of weigh in a short amount of time, your body will really go through some health problems. Some risks could be that your hair may grown thinner, your periods may not be regular anymore (which is not a good thing), and your stomach system will be working slower, etc.
Realistically, if you lose weigh the heathy way, then 1 to 2 pounds per week is a reasonable amount per week. Anything more, may be due to water loss or you have decided to go the other route and lose weigh by starving yourself.
Remember that the number on the scale doesn’t define you… You define you. The scale can’t tell you how great you look in your jeans or how you feel… So don’t rely so heavily on that scale. Our bodies’s weight constantly fluctuates all the time… So it isn’t always so reliable.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

David asks…

how can i lose weight easily?

I dont want to be a bother to anyone but i really need to know how to lose some weight. Im 13 and i weigh 140 i am 5’3. I was walking yesterday and my friend said we got to get fit for before summer i said “o k , but i really cant picture myself with a 6 pack” so I was wondering if anyone could help me i cant go to a gym. But i have a big field in front of my house. Please tell me what i should do and thank everyone so much for the answer’s!

But they try to add wheat bread.So do i pack my own lunch or what please send back and you’ve been a great help. i dont have a bike but the big field how many times should i jog around it? How many days? WHich days? Am i the normal weight size for a 13 yr old boy? so much to ask!

weight loss cardiff answers:

There is no “easy”, I will tell you that much. Also, you must be fit for yourself, not for others.

Weight is diet and exercise. For someone your age and height, you should consume about 1,400 just to function. (Calories are used for growth, heart rate, breathing, and all body functions, not just fat.) As you drop weight you slowly drop the amount of calories you consume. These are also 1,400 calories of food you can get real nutrition off of… Fish, chicken, apples, yogurt, etc. Cheetos, french fries, and hamburgers have very little nutritional value and what are called “empty calories”. For your metabolism to function properly and to lose weight you must feed your body well and properly. Starving yourself does absolutely nothing except cause you to bloat.

As for exercise, there are TONS of activities you can do! Swimming, biking, jogging, playing sports, etc. A one hour bike ride of “leisurely” riding (11mph or less) can burn 350 calories. Just bike 3x weekly with friends and you’ll drop 1,000 calories per week. Guess what? That’s about 1lb!

The absolute best thing you can do for your body is don’t over do it. ALL bodies respond differently and should be treated as such. Don’t listen to anyone, you must take things slow and make a real change, not something “just for summer”, or you’ll end up sick.

Try having 3 healthy meals per day with a healthy snack or two. Stick to the 1,400 calories. (Breakfast 400 calories, lunch 400 calories, a 100 calorie snack, and a 500 calorie dinner.) A 100 calorie snack can be a small pack of popcorn, a Yoplait yogurt, some grapes and cheese, or whatever you want!

Remember, drink lots of water! Water keeps your body healthy and keeps things moving. Try and drink 4-6 glasses of water per day. Not to mention if you drink a bottle of water with an afternoon snack it helps you feel full and will reduce urges to “snack”!

3 meals, 1 snack, 1,400 calories. Do regular exercising and try and get your heart rate up at least 3x per week along with other exercises. (Jump rope, jogging, etc all get your heart rate elevated.) Drink water, keep yourself healthy, and enjoy being a young teenager!

I wish you the best of luck!

(With what I just told you, in 8 weeks time, you can lose about 8-10lbs. It’s unhealthy and unrealistic to expect any more than that. If you stick with it and strive to be healthy, though, by next summer you can shed many more pounds.)

Linda asks…

Help from a teenager: losing weight?

This is coming from somebody who wants to change. Please don’t be immature.

I’m always big. I never was at an average weight, and I hate that. I never was average.

I’m 14, going into 15. I am considered overweight. You don’t even have to weigh me, you’ll already know if you see me. Lol.

I want to change, so I have a few questions.

To start off, if I were to lose a lot of weight (probably half of me right now… uh… don’t laugh), will that affect my skin? That’s what I fear the most. I don’t care about stretch marks, it’s the tightness of my skin that is bugging me.

I fear that I will look older than I really am if I were to lose weight. I dislike surgeries, and rather not take that option, even if it was offered to me. Plus, my single mother isn’t doing all that well in the first place…

Will it sag or wrinkle?

I assume that it “depends on how big I am”? Let’s just say I’m probably bigger than you, but I will not have my own documentary of how large I am (get what I’m saying?).

The only positive thing about being overweight is that when you sleep, it’s comfortable. Your stomach acts like a pillow.


Yes, it’s a serious question.
Well… I’ve always, always been overweight…

Phew… I’m surprise by the mature answers. Thanks.
Mr. Choke… I can’t help but think that you’re not overweight. I think it’s your height.

I’m 5’1. That’s bad for somebody who’s overweight. Lol.
I will never go on an unhealthy diet routine like throwing up.

Also, does taking lots of fiber work?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Hey man chill lol i used to be a fat bastard myself, still am a little overweight but not as bad. Used to be 5’7 230 pounds now im 5’10 190 pounds.
Im 15 as well, at our age our skin stretches as we lose weight so you wont have hanging skin or anything.
You’ll see that you don’t bruise as easily though.
It wont make you look older so you can chill on that one.
Hey if your really that fat you can lose a lot of water weight and look better, which could boost your self esteem
Find a girl you like maybe, she will motivate you to get your fat ass into motion and work off some pounds
Just cut down on any fatty stuff your eating
Look at the percents on the back of stuff your eating, follow those loosly you can go over a bit or under a bit its all good
Just jump on a treadmill and lift some light weights with high repetitions.
Find motivation, i dunno if your like some people but think “Wow if i get a nice body, it will fit my personality and i can get some pussah”
You know what im saying?
Take it easy work hard. Peace 🙂
Hey i wanna call ivy a idiot 😛 just putting it out there
I wanna call anyone saying that he will have sagging anything
a retard because its not true.
Maybe if hes gifted he will have some stuff sagging but other than that it wont
LOL yea im pretty big, but i have a gut and man thighs too bro. I got pics if you really don’t believe me
Fiber helps but not too much of it
Hey add me on msn i like helping people that are like me lol
When you lose weight you will grow bigger but i dont know if youll ever reach past 5’6 you never know though

Jenny asks…

why does it become diff to lose weight after acertain age?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The reason it becomes harder for people to lose weight after a certain age is the same reason for why people gain weight easily after a certain age: metabolism. After people are done growing, their bodies don’t need as much energy (calories) to keep their bodies doing what they do. Since a lot of people don’t really know that their metabolism slows down after a certain age, they continue eating like they’re teenagers, consuming more calories than they need, which causes them to gain weight. When they try to lose that weight it’s harder than it is for a teenager to lose weight since the metabolism of a forty year old isn’t as going to burn as much calories for energy as a fifteen year olds.
