Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Lisa asks…

Does anyone have a quick way to lose weight and ideas for distractions during the day?

I’m 16 and I weigh around 195 lbs. I always feel self-conscious around my friends but I don’t exactly feel fat. I don’t like that I’m unhealthy and I feel like I’d be happier if I weighed more of an average weight for my age and height. Unfortunately, I have a hard time with sticking to exercising and I almost kinda don’t want to admit that I have a problem and I need to work on it. I could easily cut out bad foods because we don’t have them around my house. My major problem is that I have snacks all the time. Not unhealthy snacks, but I do have a lot of them. I need something else to do with my time around the house that will keep me occupied and not thinking about my rumbling stomach. I’m also hoping to lose weight by the end of the summer so that I can be one of those miraculous summer transformations. I’ve always wanted to do that. Please say you have some way to help me!!

It would mean a lot to me if I could get your help. Thank you!

Oh honey, I can so hear the pain in your question. I have struggled with my weight since the age of 16 also.

I have a friend at work, her and I have been doing the Atkins diet. It really works and best of all, you get to eat foods that we were always taught were bad for us. I have lost 25 pound in just 6 weeks.

Go to, read about the diet and it will explain to you how it works. If you have any questions, feel free to email me. I am a nurse and work during the day but I will answer any questions that I can. Hang in there, you’re beautiful no matter what size you are.

What is the fastest way to lose weight without starving myself ?

I need to lose weight fast and am willing to do almost anything. I know starving myself is not healthy, so I do not want to go that route but any suggestions would be appreicated.

weight loss cardiff answers:


No, seriously now. =] Change things in your life and you can easily drop a few, and a few more, and a few more.. Until you’re satisfied with your weight.

Stop eating fast food, it disrupts weight loss completely. You don’t need to cut it out completely, just look online at your favourite fast food restaurant’s websites at the nutrition information. Nearly all of them have it.
Salads are a good fast food choice, but with grilled chicken on top (if its chicken) and always look at the dressing packets. Ask for light or fat-free dressings with salads. Most of those little packets are 150 calories or less.

Next, cut out badbadbad carbs such as crackers, white bread, pasta, etc. Go for whole wheat/whole grain bread.

Cheese is another thing that disrupts diets. Unless you eat a very small amount or maybe part-skim if you can get it. Peanut butter is another thing you need to eat in smaller amounts. Maybe a tablespoon at a time? Spread on a stick of celery or for a sandwich on wholegrain bread.

SODA. SODA. Badbad! It’s amazing how many calories you can down from one soda can. Maybe diet soda? Coke zero tastes nearly exactly like regular soda with about 2 calories a can. Just don’t drink a lot, it’s still bad.

Drink water! It keeps you dehydrated, and full. Most people are just thirsty when they think they’re hungry, which is why they overeat. Eight 8oz glasses of water is what you should get in a day.

Measure things out. You can completely get 10x more calories in by simply eyeballing it.

Read packages. You don’t need to cut out your favourite foods completely. For example, a Chips Ahoy cookie only has 80 calories. Sure, an slightly high amount of fat but it’s a cookie. Eating two of those wouldn’t kill you.

And the most important thing.. WATER! Drink water. Water can keep you full, and even if you’re just having a small snack having some water with it will make it feel more like a big meal in your stomach.

Good luck! And I’m so glad to see someone tonight who /states/ they don’t want to starve themselves. That’s good. Very good.

Sharon asks…

How can I lose weight and make my hair grow back faster?

I had cancer and they gave me steroids, I gained so much weight.
People make fun of me and it hurts because I can’t help it. I want to be skinny again.
Is there a way I can lose weight fast? I’m not on steroids anymore and I’m cancer free.

My hair is grown back but really short and I’m tired of wearing wigs. Is there a vitamin I can take to make my hair grow faster?

Thanks πŸ™‚

weight loss cardiff answers:

Weight from steroids comes off really easily. I lost 45 lbs in 4 months eating fruit and vegetables and walking endlessly.

Hair you just have to wait for. I have a collection of beautiful scarves that I rotate.
