Can anyone help me with this weight losing problem?
I’ve been trying to lose weight for quite a while now.
I go to the gym 5-6 days out of the week for at least an hour each time, and I have a very strict diet, why am I not losing weight? My sister has been doing the same thing but she’s been dropping the weight so easily and fast. I don’t know why I am not losing weight like she is. I know that everyone’s body is different and it can take longer for certain people but this has been going on for a long time. Can anyone help me? Maybe some suggestions on what to do?
I drink at least eight glasses of water a day, about 1000 calories a day, no more than 1500, and I cut my carbs down a LOT. Also, I try not to eat or drink anything that has a lot of sugar.

I don’t really know what to tell you without knowing what your diet consists of.. Just make sure to portion your food correctly.. ONLY drink water, maybe a cup of milk but really nothing else.. And drink a lot.. If you can find lower calorie alternatives for the same food you’re eating, do that.. Ex.. Light wheat bread has a 1/4 the calories of any other, spray butter has 0 calories, etc… And try to stay away from any condiments that may be holding you back.. If you eat salads, don’t eat the salad dressing, cheese, etc.. Good luck!! Hope it works out for ya!!

Here are a few awesome tips to living a healthy lifestyle.
– eat vegetables! Loads of them. Cucumber,broccoli,peppers,salad greens.. Etc
– fruits. Great fruits for snacking on are bananas,apples,pears,oranges,..etc you can have some dried fruit, in moderation too , such as prunes,raisins,..etc
– low fat dairy, such as low fat greek yogurt, skim milk,low fat cheese.. Everything low in fat really 🙂
– chicken, lean beef and fish. Very important healthy sources for protein!
– whole wheat -> brown bread, rice, pasta.. Etc. These are way healthier than white processed food!
– nuts,olive oil and avocado is good for healthy fats.
I might have missed out some healthy foods, but these are the main ones. Basically, eat natural foods. Organic. Very healthy! Stay away from junk food such as crisps,sweets, fast food..
– take part in a sport, such as swimming,basketball etc if you’re into that
– go to the gym, do cardio and do weights if you’re not too young (atleast older than 15,16)
– if you don’t like exercisin that much you can always walk
just remember to lower your calorie intake, and eat healthy. Exercising regularly, you should lose atleast 2 pounds every week 🙂 remember it’s a lifestyle change, not a quick diet to lose weight. So treat yourself every now and then!
Good luck 🙂 xx
How to get motivated to lose weight fast?
For months I’ve been telling myself I’ll lose weight; so far, I’ve lost nothing. It’s like- one week I eat all healthy, lose a few pounds and then the next week all the motivation has disappeared and I suddenly gain much more than ever before. I regret not starting months ago but this time I really want to take it seriously. I need to lose at least 7kg by mid-August. Currently, my only access to sport is swimming and the treadmill. What’s a good plan to help me lose 7kg in a few months or more importantly, how can I stay motivated instead of stuffing myself every few days?!
Btw I’m 15 if that makes any difference on the amount of exercise I should be doing, etc.

Don’t rush. You are only 15. You still have years to take care of your body. Best thing now is understand yourself. Weight is one thing but I can see the main problem to all your problem. That’s is concentration, focus and commitment. It’s not east to master this. Takes time.
Aren’t you feeling tired and frustrated that you keep setting good goals again and again without any improvements? What is the problem? It’s not about weigh anymore. You should be focusing what is your major drawback from your commitment and your goals. Once you fix this, anything you will should be easily solved.
For now, screw the plan about losing weight. Start small and focus small. Do one thing at a time. You know losing weight and looking healthy is not a simple tasks. It involves a lot of actions and stuff to do like eating right, choosing your food right, exercising, types of exercise, rest, and a lot more. Plus you have to learn to keep it constant.
So jot and list down all the stuff that you think can help you lose weight, gain better health and lifestyle. Then do each of those things one at a time until you can do it without planning or it becomes a typical reactions or behavior to you. Don’t know how to put this. It’s like your body is always learning to adapt and adjust and this takes time for your body to memories itself. Same goes to your brain. Stuff that you do constantly will be imprint deep into your body and brain that you do it without knowing. So start doing the items in your list one at a time until your body and brain remembers it and do it without planning. You should know when you reach there.
Start by the food which is the most important part of losing weight and keeping in shape. Do you eat fruits and vege everyday? How’s your diet? Do that first. Keep eating fruits everyday. An apple and an orange per day. Do that until you don’t feel lazy doing it. Then keep going for the next few items. Should be a normal routine when you reach college or uni. By the time you reach adulthood, you should be in great shape and peak of health. Remember! Don’t rush! Time is on your side.
Good luck and keep it up. Hope this helps!
