Effective diet recipe to lose weight fast?

I’m 5’4ft tall and weighing 161lbs…im struggling to achieve 138lbs. Need help on simple diet recipe to lose weight within 1 month. Any fast workout since im working 8 hrs.

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).

I am a girl, 5’5” and i weigh 135 pounds. im not fat but all of my family calls me fat and my parents dont tell them anything. they have taken a toll on my life and i can never feel good about myself. i just want to lose weight fast so i can prove to my parents what everyone did to me. what is the fastest and best way i can do this? and how long can i achieve it in?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The way not to do it is starve yourself, to start with. Just exercise and eat right. I did….lost 90 LBS because of it. Starving yourself won’t help at all. Drink more water, eat less before bed, and don’t eat for stress are the 3 things I follow and i’m going pretty well if i don’t say myself. 90 LBS isn’t anything like 5-10lbs so take my advice. If you want anymore details, feel free to email me. Just please be patient for ppl seem to email me for advice on this, I will reply, don’t worry! ~Adia`

Betty asks…

Any good ways to naturally lose weight fast?

I’m 13 and i weigh 186 and i’m 5ft tall.. I’m trying to get into shape, and lose my body fat.. But I don’t know how to. What are some effective ways to lose weight fast ?Is there any? and is there anybody who can give me tips?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Try not to eat after 7pm. Eat fruits and vegetables as much as you can and eat a lot of soups and try to make them yourself, so they don’t contain any additives and extra fat and sugar. Also, either try to exercise at least 30 minutes a day. You don’t need to sign up at a gym or anything major like that, you can just take a walk for 30 minutes or a hoola hoop at home, or a jump rope at home. Also try to limit bread and pasta intake that helps a lot, and drink a lot of water. All these things are what help me to lose weight and keep it off.

Most importantly!!!!! Don’t try restrictive and popular diets, you will most likely get off and for sure gain the weight that you had lost.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Sandy asks…

what is YOUR success story when it comes to weight loss?

ok so i’ve seen and heard many ppl who have lost over 30 lbs, or even the weight they’ve gained from having babies, so just wondering and curious, what is YOUR success weight loss story, what have you done? what are some of your exercise routines?

please share with us

thank you =)

weight loss cardiff answers:

Hey i’ve lost 30 pounds, and i go crazy hearing about people trying to loose weight by not eating, i lost weight by educating myself about nutrition.

First when it comes to a diet,

DONT GIVE UP, but be healthy about it. IF you just dont eat or do not eat atleast 1300( for female) calories a day, your body starts freaking out and thinking your starving so it holds on to all the fat in your body in order to survive, and you end up becoming frusterated wondering why am i not loosing any weight, just feeling yucky. Then if you actually stick on to that routine of not eating for a few months you start to loose weight, but its your muscle you are loosing, your body is starving with no food so it starts to eat your muscles, and by this time your body attitude has changed and your addicted to not eating. Than due to lack of calcium your teeth start to turn brown and eventually break in half or fall out, but i guess thats good since you dont need them for eating anyways! Also you will loose your hair, this is not a lifestyle. I’ve had personal experience wtih weight loss and i concured it, you can too but you HAVE TO EAT!


To eat healthy, First thing first, if you love soda, Try to see it for what it is, read the back of the can its nothing but added flavors, fat, sugar, and it tears at your stomach. I drink only water, and i do sit ups every night. Cut out junk food, and eat food that is good for you body.

Before i eat anything i think about how it will help my body, what is a cookie going to do, sit in my stomach and turn into fat, what is chinese food going to do, saturated fat, grease, or vegetables that will fuel my body, protein, thats how you have to think, you have to be a consious eater and think about what you eat before you eat it.

You have to lower your calorie intake in order to loose weight,and by that i dont mean down to like 200, you need atleast 1300 a day(for women). Slimfast is a great resource the website is free and you can enter every piece of food you have eaten and see how much fat you’ve consumed and how many calories. It also takes your gender height and weight into consideration and gives a plan to stick to (FOR FREE), plus it tells you how much you should weight. Its called a BMI calculator.

I was overweight, My face got so huge and i felt like all of the rest of me did too, i found out how to eat healthy and stuck to and i’ve lost around 30 pounds by doing that.

Cut out all sugar/junk food/ cookies and all. Eat every 3 hours. Like at 6 i wake up and have all fruit for breakfast and than at 9 i have a snack of raw fruits or vegetables, at 12 i eat a slimfast bar and half a turkey sandwhich or something, at 3 i have another snack of vegetables or a fruit, and for dinner i have meats like chicken with no skin, or fish that has not been fried with half a plate of vegetables. Raw veggies are better than cooked actually because they loose nutrients when they are cooked.
Plus you gotta excersize, even if its 30 minutes a day, if you have ON DEMAND like on your tv, they have free excersize videos you can do, thats what i do. I also got into yoga, 5 months later i went from a size 12-13 to a 4-5, and i was at 156, now i’m at 126, and i’m 5’6 tall.

Good luck., and no soda!

Betty asks…

is acai berry supplements really all they are cracked up to be for good weight loss?

I have been wanting to try theses supplements for awhile everywhere on the internet is advertising peoples success stories but my husband thinks it is just a scam so I was wondering if anyone has tried acai berry pills or products and got some results?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Acai has absolutely nothing to do with weight loss. It’s a berry, high in antioxidants. You can get the same vitamins by eating blueberries or raspberries, or even drinking green tea or pomegranate juice. CNN has already done a story about how the weight loss claims are bogus

All of these internet ads are nothing but scams to charge up your credit card every month for $40 with no way to cancel – google acai berry scam to see how many tens of thousands of people have reported being scammed

If you want to try for yourself, never fall for any free trial or buy online. You can get them at any health food/vitamin store.

Mandy asks…

What is your Atkins diet weight loss story?

I want to know stories of success & failure from those on or previously on the Atkins diet, especially those of you that JUST did the diet and didn’t exercise. Also, any tips?

Thanks in advance, 10 points for the best, most informative answer!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Nearly 6 years ago, I started Atkins low carb way of eating to just quit gaining weight. I had to get my out of control appetite under control. I never imagined I could LOSE weight without hunger or exercise, since I’ve become disabled. I never bothered weighing or measuring til I’d noticed that my clothes got huge quick. When my health improved dramatically also, I knew this was my new way of life and since it’s eat all you want (of low carb foods) I know I can do this for life.

My personal carb level is low. I am older & disabled & don’t move much (or cook much) but I eat all I want of meats, eggs, cheeses, yogurt, fats, green vegetables, almonds, berries, flax seeds, chia seeds, shirataki noodles and other foods. Someone active would have a MUCH higher carb level & can usually include all fruits, beans, whole grain products but not sugar & highly refined carbs in unlimited amounts. As long as you have 65% of total calories, if not, the body will still remain in glycolysis by converting 58% of excess protein into glucose (via gluconeogenesis).

It takes minimum of 3 days to convert a body to ketosis, (but only one bite to convert back to glycolysis). People feel sluggish the first week but most feel better than ever thereafter.

Simple carbohydrates (sugar, flour, bread, cereal, pasta, potatoes, rice) trigger insulin which can store the calories eaten into fat. The more protein the more the fat burning hormone glucagon is released. The more carbohydrate the more the fat storage hormone insulin is released.

High insulin levels promote inflammation, weight gain, hunger & unbalance other hormones. Controlling insulin levels will balance out other hormones & allow human growth hormone (HGH) to be produced naturally so lean muscle will be gained even without exercise. Any exercise will greatly increase muscle mass with high HGH levels.

Ground flax seed (2 Tbsp) 1/4 cup water, artificial sweetener, mix in a raw egg – let sit 10 min. To absorb liquid, put some cream cheese in the middle & nuke 2 minutes. Suggested for daily fiber needs.

The first 2 weeks eat several cups a day of (mostly) lettuce & celery, cucumbers, radishes, mushrooms, peppers & more vegetables thereafter – add 5 grams per day additional every week (20 grams day first 2 weeks, 25grams 3rd week, 30grams 4th week etc) til you gain weight, then subtract 10grams. That will be your personal carb level (everyone is different & depends on how active you are.)

Start with meat, fats & salads for 2 weeks and then slowly add in more green veg, wk4 fresh cheeses, wk5 nuts & seeds, wk6 berries, wk7 legumes, wk8 other fruits, wk9 starchy veg, wk10 whole grains. You will learn how your body reacts to different foods.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Joseph asks…

How can I speed up weight loss?

I am 13 and 150 pounds. I want to loose 30 pounds and I would like to do it in 2 or 3 months. I am joining a gym and I plan to go atleast 3 times a week for an hour or so, and I am dieting, but do u have any tips about how to loose weight quickly and easily?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better:

*1) Burn more calories then you’re consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at

Get a diet and fitness calculator that you can put on your computer or cell phone. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities.

Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight:

It is difficult and unhealthy to lose more than one or two pounds per week. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. If you eat 500 fewer calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. If you burn through exercise 500 more calories per day for a week you will lose one pound.

*2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement.

Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water. Read this article for more information on high GL Carbs:

Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Here is an excellent food pyramid that anyone can follow:

*3) Exercise on most days by doing cardiovascular training and/or resistance training activities.

Read a book or find a certified trainer to make sure your doing all resistance training exercises correctly. A great book to buy that teaches you the resistance training basics is “Weight Training for Dummies”. A superb magazine to buy with resistance training routines that will not get you bored is “Muscle and Fitness”. Signup for the free newsletter. An excellent free online resource is at

A good book to buy that teaches you the cardiovascular training basics is “Fitness for Dummies”.

*4) Get plenty of sleep. Sleep experts say most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance, health, and safety.

*5) Educate yourself continually on health issues and make a life long commitment to good health. A great free publication is “Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005”. A superb book to read is “You The Owner’s Manual”. An excellent periodic publication is the “Nutrition Action Health Letter”. A reputable test you can take to measure your biological age is at

Look at all areas where you can enhance your health. For example, make improvements in the quality of the air you breathe. Review outdoor air quality forecasts where you live and get an indoor air purifier. Send me an email or yahoo instant message to “gainbetterhealth” if you want an indoor air purifier recommendation and if you have any questions.

How to choose what side of family to live near?

I have 2 sides of family… 1 in Arizona and 1 in Oklahoma and cant decide which one is best to live near! My family in Arizona is more free spirit and partiers on every other weekend and doesn’t discuss God or core values that will raise better kids for our future. But they are fun to be around. I cant imagine wanting to live in Arizona forever because I enjoy the green landscapes… My mom who is sick (been sick all her life with lupus) thinks she wont be alive in 10 yrs from now, but dr’s have been saying that for 10 yrs by now. My mom stresses easily and cusses in normal conversation that is not a great influence on my child, but she has her own lil qwerks that makes her loveable. When my mom comes over to my house you know she is judging if the dishes are done, vaccum has been done, if you are or are not gaining or losing weight. It stresses me out sometimes. I like having a clean house just sometimes life gets in the way to keep everything spotless. I have 1 sibling in Arizona. If I leave Arizona I know it will be crushing to my mother.

I love each side equally!

My family in Oklahoma is more in que with my values of discussing God, family quality time, teaching your children good wholesome values, and being self sufficient. I like Oklahoma land. The downfall for my Oklahoma family is they are more laidback sometimes to the point that no excitement but its not too bad. My dad and stepmom are both great grandparents. My stepmom likes a clean house too like my mom but doesn’t stress out or judge on cleanliness. I have 3 siblings in Oklahoma.

Sry for so much details but I feel stressed deciding.

Jenny asks…

What kind of exercises should I do to lose my pregnancy flab?

I am 24 yrs old and had my kid 5years ago. I am 5’6 235 lbs and keep getting frustrated I don’t know what to do to lose the flub from my pregnancy. I can’t stand it any more and I need to do something about it. I have started working out but iam not sure if I am doing enough. And its not getting rid of the loose tummy I have. Someone please help and tell me what I can do to get fit.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Lots and lots of walking its easy and you are less likely to give it up because you wont get tired so quickly then build up what you do introduce some weights and other exercises like lots of resistance training that will tighten everything back up, doing hard workout to begin with makes people give up easily.
You wont lose weight with just exercise you need to eat better too,
With food you basal metabolic rate is ( 2403 ) that means how many calories you should be eating a day now take 500 calories from that and you should be loosing about 1lb a week and if you do 2 hours walking a day then that is another lb a week you will lose I know it sounds slow but it is the healthy way and your skin will tighten back much more easily.
Eat lots of greens and meat eat 6 meals a day 2- 2- 1/2 hours apart

breakfast – snack- lunch- snack- dinner- snack
all snacks should be about 150 calories each

Little tips chew gum it burns 10 calories an hour
taking a 2 min cold shower burns almost 200 calories
drink ice cold water that can burn 100’s a week
and drinking 4 cups of green tea burns 80 cal a day
