What is the best type of diet to lose weight?

Like high protein, low carb? Low fat? A cleanse or a fast? I want it to be healthy weight loss and hopefully be able to keep the weight off. I’m gonna go grocery shopping (so no weight-watchers or anything) so if it isn’t too much trouble, could you make like a shopping list? Thanks in advance 🙂

weight loss cardiff answers:

80% of weight loss is diet.
You can eat a healthy diet and lose weight.
You can eat a healthy diet and exercise and lose more weight.
You can exercise and eat a poor diet and not lose and even gain weight.
A good healthy diet high in fiber, lean meats, eggs, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, antioxidant foods, healthy beverages and low in added sugar and salt help people lose weight, lower cholesterol, increase energy, improve brain function, lower blood pressure, reduce cancer risk and have a more positive lifestyle!
You need to eat a lot more food and a lot more fiber!
Diets that exclude foods from any food group are fad diets and do not lead to permanent weight loss or solve any other health issues.
First, try to kick your fiber intake to 40 grams of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
Whatever you do, get your fiber from your food, not from a jar.
Fruits and vegetables have good fiber in them. A high fiber diet increases the metabolism.
Try a breakfast cereal with at least 20% of recommended daily allowance of fiber in it. They are usually low in sugar so there is a double benefit. Blueberries or raspberries on top add more fiber and antioxidants. But fresh or frozen, not the kind in syrup.
Raw nuts are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Avocados are the best.
Lots of beans, peas, and grains are high fiber. Whole grain breads. Fiber kicks up the metabolism so you actually burn more calories. These foods will give you more gas in the beginning but if eaten daily, the bacteria in the digestive tract will elevate lowering the gas output.
This will get you on the path for a healthy daily bowel movement. This helps clean the system and aids healthy digestion.
I know it goes against everything you’ve heard but eating lots of the right foods will actually help you lose weight!
Next, take an age appropriate basic daily multivitamin. Don’t look at your multivitamin as nutrition but more as an insurance policy. Think of it as filling in the gaps in your daily diet as opposed to a primary source of nutrients.
You have to drink lots of water to be healthy. But you can disguise it. Fill your glass all the way full with ice before pouring low sugar beverages. Try iced green tea with a splash of orange juice in it for sweet. More antioxidants. Add lemon juice to water for flavor. Slice up a cucumber and float it in pitcher of water. Gives it salty fresh taste. But you must drink up to 100 oz of water daily to help your body get rid of waste and the natural toxins.
Last, you need to get 7-10 hours of quality sleep depending on your age. All recent sleep studies report a connection between poor sleep and weight gain.
You must combine a healthy diet with exercise to multiply the benefit. Whether an hour a day in the weight room or just a 30 minute brisk walk every day, the added benefit of a regular exercise program really do increase and accelerate healthy weight loss.

I lost 30 pounds in 5 months by spending my money at the grocery and gym and have kept it off for two years now. 3% of people that attempt weight loss lose it and keep it off for two years. It is not easy. It is a lifestyle change.
Good luck and good health.

What is the safest way to lose weight?

Diet and exercise or Diet pills and weight loss shakes?

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you are talking SHORT TERM, this two-week-long weight loss program will work. It has worked for me, for Renee Zellweger (after her Bridgett Jones movies) and for many others who need fast weight loss. Follow these steps religiously:

1.Drink lots of fresh water every day using this formula: (your current weight) divided by 2 = ounces of water to consume each day. I like to drink room temperature water from a bottle because it’s easier to “chug.” I put four of the bottles on the kitchen counter and make sure they are all empty by the end of the day. Best to consume them throughout the day.

2.Don’t drink any alcohol of caffeine. No soft drinks. Only green teas. REMEMBER, THIS IS ONLY 14 DAYS. YOU CAN DO IT IF YOU REALLY WANT YOUR GOAL.

3.Fast walk or run for at least 60 minutes each day. It’s best to exercise in the morning since it will rev up your metabolism and keep our calorie-burn rate high throughout the day. You can do this by walking in place, using a treadmill, or walking outside. Whatever works for you.

4.Do at least 50 crunches each day. I break mine into 2 or 3 different sessions. Also, if I need to do 20 crunches, I play a little trick with my mind and I “pretend” I am going to count to 25. It’s amazing how this helps the body get to all of the crunches with the same intensity.

5.Eat only fresh vegetables! This is the key to the whole thing. Eat as many as you want, but DON’T eat any of the following: starchy vegetables including potatoes, squashes, pumpkins, and the like. They will work against you. Limit carrots, snow peas, and other veggies that are high in sugar content. NO GRAINS. Just fresh vegetables. You can eat salads, stir-fries, steamed, etc. But this is at the heart of your success.

6.Don’t eat anything after 7:00 p.m.

7.Put photographs (from magazines) up all over your house of trim, fit women. They will serve as motivators.

8.Several times each day – especially when you first get up and when you go to bed, say something like: “I am enjoying my weight of (your goal weight).” Put it in the present tense and say it many times – with feeling! This will affect your subconscious mind to help you achieve your goal. Also, post these words in the same places where you post the photographs.

Also, don’t be surprised if you start feeling better than you have felt in a long time. You will have more energy, most aches and pains will be gone, and your whole body will look brighter. One warning, early on your elimination will be a little “urgent.” You may have some cramping. But this will all go away soon. Your body is in a deep cleanse.

Steven asks…

What are some excercises that are easy on the feet?

Towards the end of November I got a bunionectomy, on my right foot. I was told I cannot run until December this year [2007]. I need some excercises to keep me in shape. I used to run competitvly, and I hate not being able to participate in races anymore! I love pilates, and yoga, so anything associated would be great, or ust something I could do at home 😀 I’d also like some tips on weight loss? I’m 116 and 5’6, so something to help me maintain or lose, would be greatly appreciated!

Try drinking more tea,water,and juice! U can talk more walks out side during the morning,afternoon,and evening ! Depends on you really! I would say to stay away from sweets and candy ! Buy lots of herb pills that will cleanse your body !

What is the best diet to lose weight fast and keep it off?

I just need to lose around 10 pounds before the holidays. I have very little will power, but I think it’s just because I am looking for the right type of diet. Let me know whats out there!! Thanks…

weight loss cardiff answers:

Yesterday I was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for Athena the wonder dog, at Wal-Mart and was about to check out. A woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

On impulse, I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, and that I was starting the Purina Diet again. Although I probably shouldn’t, because I’d ended up in the hospital last time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the foods nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story.)

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no; I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter’s ass and a car hit us both.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was laughing so hard.

WAL-MART won’t let me shop there anymore!!!

Helen asks…

what is the best diet to lose weight FAST?

I havent been able to lose the weight i gained from my last pregnancy and its been 2 years. i’ve tried several diets and excersize but nothing seems to help. Any suggestions? I need to lose about 50 lbs. to be back to my normal size and id like to lose it ASAP!!!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Well there are the simple ways such as crack cocain or there are the more dedicated ways such as diet exorcise and a gym membership. Try weight watchers i have seen much success from mothers using that system.

But dont use any of those diet pills etc.. They are bad for you and can cause cancer in your later years.

You need to come up with a workout routine that will work for you around the babysitting that im sure that your doing.

Good luck!!

Charles asks…

What is a good way to lose weight fast thats practical?

I need to find a way to lose weight fast thats practical.Dieting doesn’t work for me, and neither does exercise.I’m 5’4 and weigh about 135 pounds. I know thats not terribly big,but I want to lose weight. Im too young for this fat! Thankyou.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Well, the best way is diet and exercise. I’m 5’5″ and 120 pounds, I’ve got to keep fit for Breakdancing. Really, all I can say is.. Watch what you’re eating, and try to fit in some running and other daily exercises. Running for about 20 minutes 5 times a week isn’t all that bad. It works for me. Trust me, I was so lazy a year or so back. Once you get into it, and you see the pounds dropping, you’ll be all for it.

Donna asks…

What is the fastest diet to lose weight 10 pounds fast…?

From personal experience only please! I want to lost 10 pounds in at the most 2 weeks… & yes it can be water weight… I have heard of those cleanse drinks wear you fast and only drink for like 2-3 days but I don’t know if hey are safe and you only lose like 3 pounds.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Hi, This is from personal experience. My friend lost 10 pounds in about 3 weeks. All she did was cut out the sodas, fast foods, breads, pasta and sweets and ate a little bit better like more fruits and veggies. She did cheat every now and then, so if you were really strict with this, I’m sure you’d lose the weight with no problem.

Since you asked about cleanse drinks, I’ll give you a link to a website that has some information about diets including some kind of a cleanse diet. You might want to check it out.

Good Luck

What is the Best Diet to Lose Weight Fast?

Alright, I’m looking to get a little healthier. I’m not fat, but I’m just looking to lose about 20lbs and tone up a tad for school. I’m a swimmer that swims 3 to 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Now what is the best food/diet plan that you’ve done or had a friend do that worked really well.

weight loss cardiff answers:

As a general rule you need 3 portions of carbohydrate, (ideally wholegrains such as brown rice or wholewheat pasta), 3 of protein (such as eggs or beans), 3 of fats (for example avocado or nuts), 2 of dairy (like cheese or yogurt) and at least 5 of fruit and vegetables. Drink lots of water and aim for about 1800 calories a day. X

Paul asks…

what is a good diet to lose weight fast?

I’m 16 years old and i have stretch marks, I need to lose weight and perferably a little faster that it normally takes. I know it takes time to lose weight but i need to lose about 30 to 40 pounds maybe, before january 1st because im going on a cruise and I dont want to be fat. can someone tell me what is a good diet for me to go on to lose some weight and what i have to do in order to maintain the diet and everything.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Be sure to eat 5 small meals a day. Make breakfast your biggest meal. EX: Breakfast, AM snack, Lunch, PM snack, Dinner. It will boost your immune system.

Eat lots of veggies. Lean meats (fish, turkey & chicken) Watch your portions. You can use meal replacements too for your breakfast, lunches and dinner. Snacks can be an apple, handful of almonds.
If you skip out on meals, your body wil go into starvation mode. Which means, it won’t burn anything from your fat cells for energy. It will just store more fat everytime you eat. Very important to stick with eating 5 meals a day.

Lots of cardio to lose fat. Be sure to lift weights too. If you can lose fat you can get saggy loose skin. Lifting weights can help prevent that. Start off by walking 30 minutes 3-5 times a weeks until you build up stamina.

“if you want to be lean, eat clean” (Basically God made foods, no processed stuff)

FYI: Drink lots of water. Whatever you weigh now divide it by 2. That’s how many ounces of water you should drink a day. Fat leaves your body in your urine.

Good luck.

Charles asks…

If I go on a very fast diet and lose weight quickly, if after I have lost the weight…?

if i eat healthly, and exercise often will i keep the weight off? I dont need people to tell me its dangerous to lose weight fast, I already know that thanks.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Well it depends on what kind of diet you go on. I would say it’s most likely you will gain some of that weight back but if you work out and exercise you will definiely keep some of it off. And then more will slowly come off! =)
Have fun and good luck!
