Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Paul asks…

Should a skinny person go on a fast or liver cleanse diet?

I’m currently on a liver cleanse diet to hopefully remove toxins from my body but the problem is I am skinny. I lose weight easily and by removing many foods from my diet, I feel like I will lose a lot of weight. Should I even be on this diet?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Cleansing has absolutely no medical benefit and is in fact harmful to the digestive tract.
There is no “build up” of bad plaque or sludge in a normal system. If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their bodies couldn’t absorb nutrients.
Since we reabsorb most of the water in our food and drink through the large intestine, If it was coated with “mucoid plaque”, we would all be sloshing around like sponges yes?
We “cleanse and detox” 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
Read food labels. If you can’t pronounce it, don’t put it in your body.
Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
A high fiber diet works every time.
Spend your money in the produce department instead of giving it away.

Sandy asks…

How to lose a decent amount of weight in a week or two?

I need to lose weight. And fast!! I’m 6’0″ right now, and I’m a 15 year old girl. I’m about 145lbs and a size 6. but I need to lose weight! I need perfection! I want to be around a size 2 or 4 if possible. Im not anorexic so please don’t think that I am. But how can I lose enough weight within a week or two? I’ve heard that chewing sugar-free gum helps you lose weight because of Sorbitol in it. Is this true? And what other ways can I lose weight really fast? I’ll do whatever it takes.

weight loss cardiff answers:

The fastest way to lose weight would be to go on a Ketogenic Diet. Cutting out all sugar, and limiting your carbs to just 20 a day and you could easily lose up to 20 pounds in two weeks. The way the diet works is that by limiting you bodys main fuel supply (carbohydrates) it is forced to burn its own fat stores for energy. Also because burning fat for energy is sort of inefficient it increases your metabolism indefinitely.

Laura asks…

how much weight can i lose eating 1200 calories?

I currently weight 148 lbs and I am 5’9. My goal weight is 125, which means a 23 pound weight loss. How much weight can I lose and how long will it take to lose the weight if I eat 1200 calories a day? I run 5 times a week, burning about 300-500 calories per workout, depending on the day.

weight loss cardiff answers:


I have found a great blog with a story of a woman who lost weight in a healthy and easy way. It was an eye-opener for me. I’ve tried it and I must admit that the results amazed me. I lost more than 30 pounds so far and I feel better than ever.

So, what is this diet about? Well, it teaches you how to stay healthy while losing weight. It is so easy when you know how to do it, and in a long run it shows much better results, because after other diets I’ve tried before you just get that fat back. The thing is, you have to eat a few times a day, not starve. Because when you are not eating, your body stores fat and it is much harder to lose weight. When you eat, and you know what and when and how, your body will know that there is food around so it won’t store fat – it will burn it!

Here are some hints from Betty’s blog:

1.The diet creates meal plans and recipes just for you.
2.You are able to eat a few times a day, which means that you are not starving yourself!
3.The diet is based upon calorie shifting and shows you what you are doing wrong. Betty Winter on her site explains it all.
4.What is most important, you are able to buy all the food in a local store. There is no need for some expensive fancy food that promises miracles, but does nothing at all.
5.It teaches you how to lose bad eating habits.

As I told you, this diet was an eye-opener and it works. With the proper guidance all the way through the diet, it is so easy and you can do it too. It can all be found online, as Betty describes.

Betty also gives FREE gifts to anyone who visit her site these days so be sure to check it out!

So, if you wish to learn more about this easy healthy diet, check Betty’s blog, it’s in my source. Good luck!

James asks…

Is there a good dietary supplement or vitamin?

I am 28 and have been eating better and exercising a lot. I have lost about 8 pounds in 4 weeks. Is there anythng I can do or take to boost my weight loss?I would definitely prefer something natural.Thanks!

weight loss cardiff answers:

I would say just keep it up! You’re better off taking your time to lose weight than going on a crash diet or using a “magic” supplement. You can’t maintain crash diets, but healthy lifestyle changes are easy to keep up with. Maybe you can try different types of exercises..boxing, swimming, things that keep your body guessing. That’ll definitely help you with your weight loss plan!

A few things to try:
Always have an amazing breakfast that will keep you energized for the entire morning. I always say that breakfast kicks off your day–healthy breakfast, healthy day. Here are some of my favorite recipes:

And as for fitness, try things that pump your heart rate up, like these moves:

Just be patient, you’ve got this!

weight loss cardiff answers:

When you feel hungry, stop and have a cup of water. Wait 5 minutes and assess whether you are really hungry or perhaps there is something else on you mind.
When you catch yourself looking for some-thing to munch on, stop yourself and do something to occupy your time. Many people tend to eat too much when they are bored.
Remember to take it one day at a time.
If you want to snack, make sure it is a healthy, low-fat, low-calorie snack.
Remember, fat-free does not mean you can eat the whole box!
When eating fat-free products, remember to look at the serving size and calories.
Even if you’re eating low fat, you must still be aware of your calorie intake. Calories can add up and you can gain weight eating low-fat and fat-free products.
When setting your ideal weight, be realistic and choose a weight that you can comfortably maintain, without much struggle, for the rest of your life.
Do not weigh yourself more than once a week.
Eat more whole foods, natural products that have not been processed.
Do some activity daily. Walking is an excellent choice and is easy on the joints. Try to work up to 30-45 minutes a day, 4-5 days a week for maximum results.
Take up a new hobby or sport. This can occupy your time and help you avoid the fridge. Many people find that when they are busy they don’t have time to think about food.
Stock your cupboards and refrigerator with fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain products and low-fat alternatives. This will make it much easier to stick to your new, healthy plan.
Try to replace high fat ingredients in your recipes with lower-fat alternatives
Saute your food in water, both, wine or juice instead of oil.
Use applesauce or fat-free plain yogurt in baked goods instead of oil.
Another weight loss tip is that use low-fat cooking spray instead of oil.
Drink at least 8 cups of water a day.
Limit caffeine intake to 1-2 cups a day.
Set small goals instead of large ones. If you need to lose 60 lbs., break it down into 10 lb. Goals. When you reach that goal, and then set a new one of 10 or 12 more pounds.
When you reach your first goal, treat yourself to something special.
Always remember to lose weight for yourself, not to please anyone else.
Once a week, pamper yourself. Remember to show yourself love take time just for you.
Prepare a menu plan for the week ahead and stick to it.
Use a list when you go grocery shopping, and stick to it.
Never go shopping on an empty stomach.
Remember to pat yourself on the back for all your accomplishments, no matter how small they may be.

Exercise tips –

1.Lifting Weights
Increasing weights you lift means you can reduce the times per week you lift them. If you lift heavy enough, you will just need to train your muscles one time per can do 3 exercises in just 5 minutes.

2. Always play sports to help you burn fat preferably tennis, swimming or lacrosse

3. Sprinting
. Sprinting can be tough for your body but this is what builds muscles and burns fat most rapidly. It’ll also help you boost your body weight loss hormones. A couple of 60-80 feet springs will burn more calories than a full hour of walking. You could also skip, run, box or swim.
