Carol asks…

How many pounds will be lost in 2 weeks?

Okay my cousin is trying to lose weight..
They are 13, a girl, 130 lbs and their height is around 5’5

If they jog 1 for hour and do 100 jump rope things at day, about how many pounds will they lose in 2 weeks?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Hmm… Need to know their caloric intake. Normally, when dieting properly, people lose between .5 and 2 lbs/week. It’ll probably be about 1. They are being very active, but are a lower weight so it’ll be harder to lose.

How to lose weight in 2 weeks?

I’m going on holiday in 2 weeks and I really want to lose some weight. I’ve read that cardio is a good way to lose weight at home. Can you recommend a routine that will let me lose fat for belly, bum, thigh and leg areas? Thank you.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Recently I’ve been trying to get rid of some weight too. I highly recommend you go on a high protein and low carb diet. But be very prepared. When I first started this diet I was basically starving myself because I wasn’t too sure on what to eat and stuff. You can eat loads of protein stick to whole meat and try stay away from greasy bacon and sausages, eat as little bread as you can that has helped me loads and stay away from fizzy drinks and snacking. If you don’t usually work out do a 2 mile walk a day or something like 30 minutes or more to start with and then maybe start jogging and then get into running. This has helped me and i have lost weight. When I first started I was so discouraged because I didn’t see a change straight away and started snacking again which was stupid but I have stopped snacking and getting that thin body I have always wanted. Good luck and eat loads of veg xD x

How Long Does it Take to See Weight Loss Results?

I’ve been losing weight for about 2 weeks now, ( 2 pounds a week) and I can’t see any difference in the (bum bum bum) mirror. My clothes feel different and I tried on my smallest shirt, and it didn’t feel as tiny. But I still can’t see anything in the mirror. How long does it take?

Sandra asks…

How can I stop struggling with my weight loss and finally reach my weight goal?

I have been in this particular weight loss program for over 2 years now . Since then I had loss some weight but then gained it back. (twice) Also, sometimes I go thru these depression moods and will binge on sweets. I don; t know what the block is that;s hindering me from reaching my weight loss goal ; I needs to lose about half of my weight.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Eat rather small meals five or six times daily,of really healthy foods– think fruits and veggies and whole grains, take three to five short walks a day, (both will contribute to kicking up your metabolic rate), and drink more water, do not eat after 6pm.
Just don’t expect overnight miracles here, it’s just unrealistic and will set you up for failure. Quit the bathroom scale habit, go by how you feel and whether your favorite clothes are getting bigger on you…also try a handful of almonds half hour prior to eating your later in the day meals, they have something to do with appetite suppression.

Daniel asks…

Strength training in a weight loss program?

One always hears how strength training is good for a weight loss program, or how permanently switching to a better diet and incorporating strength training will add muscle and bring down the fat level.

How is this possible, though? Doesn’t the body need a surplus of caloric intake (relative to stable rate) in order to add muscles, and a deficit of calories to burn fat? How do those two elements go together?

My guess would be that eating the biggest meal of the day, with slightly more protein than usual, following a strength training session will result in a “surplus” of calories for a short “time window” (say, the 3 hours following a workout) and in that time frame, the body will actually use energy/protein to build muscle. Once one goes back to small portions, the body will once again resort to burning fat instead of building muscles.

So basically, strength training with weight loss is possible, although the strength gains will be lesser than usual, and the weight loss slower?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The only time that you need to be in a caloric surplus to add muscle is when you are at low fat percentages. However, you will need a surplus of NUTRIENTS (especially carbs and protein) to add muscle.

For example, someone who weighs 200 lbs and has 20% body fat will have a lean mass of 160 lbs and a resting metabolic rate of around 1950 calories per day.

If he eats 250 grams of carbs, 130 grams of protein, and 40 grams of fat per day, he will get adequate protein and carbohydrates while only consuming 1880 calories per day.

This will put him in a caloric deficit even when you do not factor in the calories that he will be burning from exercise. If he is lifting weights, he will be gaining muscle while slowly losing fat due to the caloric deficit.

Here is an article about muscle growth and a calorie estimator for gaining muscle while losing fat.

Also, the increased muscle from working out will burn more calories.

John asks…

Im having problems getting re-motivated in weight loss and Im not sure what to do. Any advice?

I was on a weight loss program for a year and I lost 48 pounds and now a year later I have almost gain all of it back. I cannot seem to get re-motivated. Ive read weight watchers stuff and other weight loss books but I just cant seem to get back on track. Im really not happy with myself but cant seem to change. Does anyone have any tips, tricks or advice?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Go to the shops and pick something (not food) that you want to buy.

Now, you can’t buy it for yourself untill you have lost 5lb’s.

Repeat until goal weight is obtained.

Joseph asks…

What happens if you take a diet pill and don’t eat after taking it?

I’ve purchases Cellan diet pills and it says to eat a half hour to an hour after taking it. I didn’t have time to eat. Is this bad for me?
This is the first time I’ve ever done this, and it’s not intentional.

weight loss cardiff answers:

That diet pills going to work either way, but eventually it’s going to hurt your body

Helen asks…

What is the best diet pill to lose weight?

I am trying to lose weight, I have changed my eating and exercising habits, but still nothing. I am wanting to try a diet pill, but I want something that is healthy for me. I do not know very much about diet pills. Can anyone help me out?
Ok, maybe I shouldn’t take a weight loss pill, but an appetite suppressant. Would that be better?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I would recommend you talk to your doctor first. If you have changed your eating and exercising habits and your weight is not coming off you may want to have your Thyroid Checked.
I would never recommend anyone take a Diet Pill because they all say with diet and exercise and I am sorry to say there is no magic pill to help get the weight off.

I can feel your pain. I have plateaued many times in my journey to lose 436 pounds. And I have bounced up and down. I am now down over 150 pounds in weight and I did it all through diet, seeing a nutritionist, and walking my dog and on a treadmill. It is not easy but I have never once taken a pill to help me get weight off.

So please see your doctor first. Find out if you have an underlying medical condition that is preventing you from getting those pounds off. He or She may be able to get your Thyroid working again, or suggest a nutritionist to help you reach your goals. But stay away from diet pills.

Nancy asks…

How old do you have to be to buy a diet pill?

Just a bottle of diet pills, do you have to be 18 to buy diet pills from a store?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Bad news – there are NO diet pills that reduce anything but your financial resources. None of them work, period. I am a practicing physician and nutritionist and in the past 25 years have NEVER had a patient lose weight on anything they tried from the pharmacy. There are not even any good prescription weight-loss drugs these days. So please don’t waste your money. Go to the library and check out the “South Beach Diet” book or the Atkin’s Diet books and work on the diet. Or consider joining Weight Watchers. The only patients who have lost weight and kept it off selected a diet approach, used it correctly, and stayed with it. Good luck.

Linda asks…

What are some simple diets where I can lose weight fast?

What are some simple diets that you get from the internet where you can lose weight really fast? But I don’t want anything like Jenny Craig or Nutria System where you have to buy the diet..

weight loss cardiff answers:

I needed the same solution when my highschool reunion came up 2 months ago. I wanted to lose about 30 pounds fast, I didn’t want to be the one everyone was talking about, “can you believe how fat she got?”. I new I would be that person at this reunion and I was scared to death…….I know it sounds shallow, but I’m human 🙂
Here’s what I did:

1: Eat well

Burning fat is more than just exercising. Selecting foods that promote weight loss will assist in ensuring that you drop the weight from your belly. Salads, fruits and vegetables are good options, as are low fat soups. Avoid foods that are high in sugar content and low in nutritional value. As well, make sure you drink plenty of water, as your body needs to be replenished after exercising. Never starve yourself when you are on an exercise regime. This can lead to the breakdown of bone and muscle and can cause serious injury.

I used the Every Other Day Diet, and loved it! I could still eat the foods I loved and did not starve myself at all and still dropped 30 lbs in 2 months. Check it out at

2: Selected exercises that are fun

By choosing sports and other activities that you enjoy. The more vigorous the sport, the more benefit that you will receive in it. Any exercise will assist you in losing weight and trimming fat, but sports like swimming, tennis, horseback riding, football and hockey are both vigorous. Exercising does not need to be boring. The more you like it, the better off you are, as you are more likely to continue exercising.

3: Sleep well.

Sleeping is something that all people need to do. By getting too much or too little sleep, you can ruin your efforts at weight loss, as your body’s health is directly related to how much sleep you get. If your body is tired, rest. Sleeping properly will promote good health and your body will be more prepared to shed weight.

5: Be persistent.

Burning fat does not happen overnight but you can speed it up with the Every Other Day Diet. You need to keep at it. There is only so fast someone can safely lose weight, and once the weight is gone, you need to make efforts to keep that weight gone. Do not give up! It is not impossible, and once you are in the habit of losing weight, it is easy to maintain the habit.

By combining these factors, you can take your life into your own hands, and give yourself the leaner, thinner and healthier you that you have been wanting.

Maria asks…


okay! so i need to lose weight fast, ive tried everything,,, i need a hardcore diet or excercises, really im ready for anything. *also it would be helpful to know were i could buy fennel, for tea*
well thanx sarah! @matthewbrown, well you cant just start a routine by ‘running’ obviosly a person’s gotta get used to walking, then jogging, then running. not hating on anybody, but sarah, big help!

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).
You can buy fennel in the supermarket, in the spices department.
