Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

David asks…

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.

weight loss cardiff answers:

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!!

How can I lose weight fast?

I tend to eat much, but the things I do eat I gain a lot of weight. I’m gaining weight like no tomorrow and I just wish to be skinny as I used too,
Any tips that could make me lose weight easily, quicker.
Please help 🙂

weight loss cardiff answers:

Here are a few awesome tips to living a healthy lifestyle.

Food :
– 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..

Exercise :
– 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

Robert asks…

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.

weight loss cardiff answers:

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!

Sandy asks…

How do you make a good healthy protein shake?

Ok I have been looking and looking for a good recipe for a protein shake. Almost everything I ive seen has something to do with steriods. So can someone tell me a safe recipe? Or can someone tell me a safe product i can buy?

Thanks a Bunch!

weight loss cardiff answers:

In my opinion, the best protein shakes are the ones you make at home with a blender. If you don’t have a blender, you can find one pretty cheap at Wal-mart, Target, K-mart, etc. Purchase a good protein powder at a health food store. If you’re trying to lose weight, use a whey product, otherwise just regular protein powder is fine. Mix a scoop of the powder with 1-cup milk (skim to lose weight), 1/2-cup plain yogurt, and fruit–fresh or frozen. The shake will be healthy and delicious. You can make a million variations using different fruits, flavorings, instant coffee, chocolate syrup, etc. The web page below has lots of protein shake recipes.
They are mostly geared towards weight loss, so just change the skim milk for regular and the fat-free yogurt for regular. Enjoy!

Sandra asks…

Is it dangerous to drink olive oil as a weight gainer?

I need to meet a deadline for weight.

Olive oil has a lot of calories per tablespoon (130-200)

If I were to drink 2 cups of olive oil a day to maximize my calorie intake (Over a course of 1- 1 1/2 month) are there any dangerous Long term or short term effects?

After one month I Will NEVER consume that much again.

weight loss cardiff answers:

That’s a bad idea. Even if you could add fat to your body by drinking olive oil, you’re just going to lose it when you stop drinking the olive oil. If you want to keep the fat, you’ll have to continue drinking the olive oil or replace it with something else. And, if you’re going to replace it, why not do that now and eat food?

Your plan is misguided and bad for your body. Oil is fat. If you want to gain weight, you should eat a good and proper diet of food and just increase your portions. If you do that, you’ll still have a healthy diet. Here’s how you should eat.

Whether you want to gain weight, lose weight, add muscle, or maintain, you should use the same diet. In other words, everyone should be eating essentially the same macro nutrients (carbs, fats, protein), micro nutrients (vitamins, minerals, fiber, etc.) barring special health or medical considerations because we all have essentially the same physiognomy and there is only one version of peak health. Here is how we should all eat according to the US National Institute of Health who are among the best health professionals in the world and the people doctors listens 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 macro nutrient ratios at about 55/25/20 (%calories from carbs/fats/protein) or whatever works for your goals. Go here for more about macros –> . Only slight changes should be made in the macro nutrient ratios to accommodate the extreme demands of special activities such as extreme athletics or inactivity due to illness.

Note: Here are the details in case you’re interested:

YOU MUST make your own food choices (no supplements without a doctor’s recommendation) based on your location, culture, available foods, personal preferences, personal resources, food allergies, 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.

VARIED means a variety of foods including fruits, dairy, meats, vegetables, grains, nuts, etc.
WHOLESOME means as unprocessed, unrefined, nutritious as is practical.
HIGH QUALITY means using the best ingredients, the least contaminants or fillers or unnecessary chemicals, etc.

Nutrient tracking is necessary to ensure you have the optimal caloric intake and macro nutrient balance. For most people, tracking is only required for fat loss because of the difficulty in cutting intake and nutrients while maintaining digestive and appetite satisfaction. However, tracking is an excellent exercise for noobs who are just learning how to eat right for the first time. Tracking makes it necessary to read labels, look up food nutrients, record data, plan meals and recipes, etc. And, as annoying as it may be to have to track, it is easier to do today than ever before with the help of website such as My Fitness Pal —> .

Even if you’re planing on lose the fat you’ve gained after you “make weight”, the olive oil plan is still less enjoyable than eating food and the food will provide you with a solid nutrition profile. The olive oil could have unwanted side effect as well depending on how your body reacts to it.

Good luck and good health!!

To help you know more about it, here are some of the things it covers.

What is in it?

Generally, the Fat Loss for Idiots is a guide to losing weight and fat as the name implies. In the book, you will be able to read the rules involved in weight loss.

Another big promise the ebook gives is that it can make you lose weight using a healthy meal plan.

The recipes in the ebook’s diet generator are simple. They are easy to prepare. Another thing is that the recipes are also cheap. Because of these descriptions, many have said that the diets are “Spartan”.

Any free low carb diet plans?

I’ve lost about 65lbs on a low carb diet, with no precise plan. I have hit a sort of plateau, but I only have about 10 more pounds to loose (I weight 158lbs and I’m 5’9″ and a 17 y/o guy) I’m looking g for a strict diet plan online (simple, and free) that tells me what to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner so I can loose those last pounds, and little love handles I still have! Lol thanks!

weight loss cardiff answers:

With any diet you’re going to find that you’ll hit a plateau since you eventually hit a homeostasis point.

A low carb diet should not be thought of as a weight “loss” diet, but a weight “reset” diet. It’s a diet that you can (and should) continue for the rest of your life. At some point you’ll hit your new “reset” weight. When you do you’ll hover there.

If you wish to lose more weight then you need a new “reset” point. The only way to do that is to change your diet to some degree.

Changing to a specific meal plan might work for you in the short-term, but it probably won’t work long-term. I think you need to just try changing something in your diet and see if that works for you or not to give you a better “reset” point.

I’d suggest adding more fat to your diet. That may help get your body to feel comfortable in burning more of its own fat.

Also make sure you’re not eating too much protein. It just gets turned to carbs if you eat too much.

Mark asks…

How can I lose weight for an MMA tournament in 8 weeks?

I have just under eight weeks until an amateur MMA competition I’m entering. I plan on entering in the 90kg/198lbs division and currently I’m 105kg/231lbs. I’m 6’1″ and according to the US military body fat percentage calculator I have 21% body fat. I’ve lost weight before over a longer period of time simply by restricting my calories to 1500 a day, and lost around 2lbs a week, but that just won’t be enough here. If I cut calories to 1000 that would probably speed the process up but will I lose much muscle then? I train for about 90 minutes 4-5 times a week.

I guess what I’m looking for is advice on whether or not it is even feasible, and if it is, what is the best approach, taking into account I obviously want to keep muscle and solely lose fat. I could also enter the 95kg/209.4lbs division if I had to but I really would prefer to go lower!


weight loss cardiff answers:

Realistically you probably can’t cut that much weight in 8 weeks. But you might be able to with enough dedication.

You need to have a net loss of 3.500 calories to lose one pound. Luckily at 21% body fat, you have fat to burn. A male can easily get down under 12% body fat before they see any real attrition to muscle mass.

Your past weight loss shows you have an activity level to burn 2,500 calories per day. To lose 33 pound, you need to net lose 14,500 calories per week or about 2.100 calories per day. So you need to have a diet of 400 per day. Which is darn hard to achieve.

If you are heart-set on meeting a 198 weight threshold, you’ll need to dramatically increase your calories burned per day. 2.500 is very low for a 6’1″ athlete. If you add in two hours a day of vigorous exercise, you’ll burn an additional 500 calories. But you’ll also add some muscle mass. You probably want to add 3 hours of intense exercise each day – distance running, swimming, aerobics, etc… This would allow you to work with a 1.500 calorie diet and still lose just over 4 pounds per week.

Daniel asks…

How to lose weight in 3 weeks?

I’m 5’7 cm tall and I weight 74kg , I want to lose weight in just about 3 weeks or more. I tried to be vegetarian , I eat vegetables & fruits everyday . But I don’t seems that I get skinner cause , It was 2 weeks ago. I should be losing abit of weight :I ? Please tell me some of ways to be skinny ;D .
I want to lose at least 30kg ;I
By the way , can you lose weight by dancing for 30 minutes ?

weight loss cardiff answers:

When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
diet, 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. For exercising,
start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
your problem areas for men and women. It’s not necessarily to become a
bodybuilder or even join a gym – a couple of dumbbells will help you
to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).
