Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Sandy asks…

How many calories should a 170 lbs. 13 year old eat each day to lose weight fast?

I’m 13 and weigh around 170 pounds. I’m trying to lose weight, but it just takes to long. I have patience, but still want better and quicker results. How many calories should I intake each day to quicken my results for weight loss?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Allright. Go on Google, or Bing, and search for a Calorie Calculator. Type in your specifications and it should tell you your calories needed per day. It should be about 2000, or a bit over. Cut this amount by upto 500.

If you want to loose weight even quicker add some excersicse.

You should notice good results within a few weeks – a month.

Lizzie asks…

When on a vegan diet, do you need to count calories to loose weight?

I heard that vegans stay naturally thin without counting calories because they dont have lots of tokins or bad foods (cause most non animal product foods are healthy).

So, if Im trying to loose weight on a vegan diet, do I really need to count calories? (If so, how many should I have daily?)

Thanks :]

PS) *Im not going vegan strictly too loose weight, Im going for animal rights and general health reasons, weight loss is just an added bonus!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Yes, you still need to count calories. There’s plenty of ways to be vegan and still consume empty calories, and even too much of a good thing can make you gain weight. The good news is that if you’re eating vegetables, it’ll take a lot more food to get up to your daily calorie quota than if you were eating meat and dairy, so you’ll be able to eat more and still lose weight.

You should look up how many calories you need based on your gender, height, weight, activity level, and how much you want to lose.

Here’s a link to the Mayo Clinic’s calorie calculator:

Hope that helps!

Sharon asks…

What food should I avoid and what to eat more to lose weight?

I am 172cm tall and I weight 65kg (Yay I lost 4kg ^.^)
I ate little bit less than usually and I lost 4kg but I really need to lose more weight in few months. I know there is no miracle for weight loss. What food should I throw out of my diet and what food should I add?

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 –
