Jenny asks…

Can I lose weight by running on the treadmill and eating better?

I am a 15 year old girl, 245 pounds, 6’0″ tall, and the only thing I have is a treadmill. I’ve been eating better, and we finally got a treadmill. Can I lose weight, just by running on the treadmill, and eating right? They are the only two things, I have/can do.

Thanks. 🙂

weight loss cardiff answers:

Eating healthy is a good way to start. Drinking more water and cutting down on sodas will also help. Though running on treadmill is good and burns calories, a more effective way would be doing weight exercises. Cardio workout such as running is important but weight exercises would cause you to burn more calories faster. Remember, balance is the key. Good luck, it’s hard work at first but it gets easier and better along the way.

George asks…

Will I still lose weight by running after I eat?

I wanted to run on an empty stomach, which I did for the past 3 days and has always helped me lose weight effectively. I wasn’t nauseous but will I still lose weight cause I found that by running on an empty stomach you burn fat directly. And that bc I already ate I’ll gain muscle/only burn some of the food I ate which isn’t what I want. Thank you!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Running on an empty stomach doesn’t mean you burn “fat directly”
The food you eat isn’t immediately available to burn off because it has not been processed and converted yet. If what you say was true, you would essentially just be making food disappear from your stomach.

Running on an empty or full stomach will have no effect on what your body burns off. So it is best to have something light to allow your body to maximize your workout.

Nancy asks…

whats effective way to lose weight without exercise?

I am trying to lose weight before school, but i don’t have the time to do any extra exercising. Currently i am on the Atkins diet (all meat and protein). Its okay. I haven’t gained weight. But i’m not losing at a pace that will reach my goal before school. Are there any other effective diets out there besides fasting?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Atkins is a smart diet choice. You only consume the most 20 carbs a day. If i include to many carbs in my meals, I gain weight. Fasting like you said is not an option so how about including more veggies and fruits in your diet plan. Really, all diets fail, you have to sometimes include a small sugar treat or salty food to shock your system. If you do ever have a binge day, consume all your carbs and calories in a 1 hour period. The reason? Because you fool your body of the amount of insulin taken into your system. So don’t eat a piece of chocolate cake at 2 p.m. Then some pretzels at 5 p.m. Just IF you do go off you’re diet, eat all the junk food in a 1 hour period. Also, dancing around you’re room, typing questions on here all burn calories. Just sitting and resting burns calories as well. So small things make a big difference 🙂

David asks…

How do I lose weight without exercise? Everytime I exercise I feel giddy and about to faint.?

I went for a blood test before and I’m not anaemic. This is KILLING ME cause I really want to lose weight. I’m thinking about 11pounds. I’m 5″4, 120 pounds. Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Fill your self up with water because that takes up a lot of food space so you would be too full to eat

or just eat carbs in the morning and lunch

Lizzie asks…

is it possible to lose weight without exercise?

I would like to lose a little bit of weight but I just dont have the time to exercise. I have so much going on right now when I do get time off I spend it sleeping to wake up for the next task at hand. I was thinking maybe eating healthier would help me shed some pounds. I figured I could stop drinking even though a rarely drink and maybe eat healthier, Does anyone have advice?

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you want to lose weight, you need to two things: eat less and exercise more. Weight gain happens when you create a calorie surplus (eat more than you burn). Your body takes the excess calories and converts them to fat which get stored around your stomach, arms and thighs. The longer you remain in a calorie surplus, the more weight you’ll gain. To lose that weight, you need to do the opposite. You need to create a calorie deficit (start eating less than you burn).

Your first step is to figure out how many calories you burn on a daily basis. Use a calorie calculator – The number you get from this tool is what your body burns on a daily basis. To lose weight, simply eat less. It sounds a lot easier than it is but making small changes helps you adjust to a new lifestyle. Don’t think of this as a diet, think of it as a new life. Instead of eating foods high in sugars, white flour and saturated fat, go with fruits, vegetables, whole wheats, fish, lean meats, nuts and beans. In addition to eating less, you also need to exercise more. Start off at 1-2 times per week and work your way up to 3-5 times per week.

Don’t make all of these changes at once or you won’t be able to properly adjust to them. Generally, eating healthier foods will decrease your calorie intake. Compare a doughnut to an apple and you’ll see that healthy foods are lower in calories. You can find some more information at the Straight Health Forums –
