When I was younger, I was super skinny. But during college, I gained tons of weight because I stopped exercising. I felt disgusting because I didn’t fit into any of my clothes anymore and always felt tired. I seriously just woke up one morning and decided I wanted to change all that. I wasn’t happy with who I was but with dedication, I changed my life. I became a vegetarian, stopped eating junk food/sugary sweets, and jogged for 30 minutes at least 3 times a week. I also started using the foot detoxification pads though I don’t know if that helped me lose weight but it certainly gave me more energy to exercise more. My friends all noticed I’m much slimmer now. I feel GREAT. Good luck.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Weight problems can result from untreated underactive thyroid or hypothyroidism. Have you been tested for this condition?
You should see your doctor and ask for the following blood tests: TSH, FT4, FT3 and most importantly anti-thyroid antibodies.
Only they can reveal if you have a problem with your thyroid, like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
Normal TSH is 0.3-3. (Some doctors still use the out-dated reference range of 0.5-5.5)
Some doctors are very misinformed and not knowledgeable about thyroid conditions.

See the symptoms below:

Treatment includes thyroid hormone replacement, such as Synthroid or natural Armour.

Donna asks…

How can I lose weight, I’m 118 lbs and almost 5’4?

I used to weigh 113, but I weigh more now. So I want to lose 5 lbs, but don’t want to work out harshly that I’d be exhausted. I work out for 4 days a week for 20 minutes per day. Somehow, I can’t stop eating junk food. I keep eating chips and lots of chocolate, so I think this is why I gain weight. Do you have any easy weight loss tips and how to be able to resist those fatty foods?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Weight loss is an overall process. You need to think about many factors. There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me.

Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why.

Make a few additional small changes – walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars.

Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can’t get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one.

In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.

Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate – in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don’t. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies.

Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day.

Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day.

Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body.

An area that many people overlook is getting enough sleep. You are much more likely to overeat or to binge eat if you are tired and not well rested, so get enough sleep.

Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc. Here are a few helpful links.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Mandy asks…

why do I lose weight easily?

I’ve been trying to gain weight/muscle for the past 2 or 3 years now. I was 130 lbs when I started to work out and recently I was 160+ and 5’9″. When I work out on a regular basis with rest in between I gain about a pound or two of muscle a month. Recently because of finals I didn’t eat too much or go to the gym for about two weeks and I lost 10 pounds. No matter how much I eat and how much I work out it’s so hard to gain weight/muscle for me. It’s always been like this where I might skip a meal or two and lose 5 pounds and it takes me about 3 months to regain that weight. I know there’s probably a lot of people who would love to be in my situation. By the way I do a little bit more running than any upper body workouts. I do eat healthy foods. Tips please anyone?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I never had a problem with my weight until college. I was always the girl who could eat anything she wanted. My friends would work out and diet, but I never felt the need to diet – I was able to eat all the food I wanted, without having to worry or even think about my weight. However, in college it just got to be too much – I was drinking, eating junk food all the time and always snacking while I studied. When I went home for Thanksgiving, my parents brought up and noticed my weight gain – it was nearly 20 pounds. They were concerned for me, however it really made me upset.

My sister had gone through a similar phase when she went off to college and she recommended I try a weight loss program. The program offered a money back guarantee and with that I believed in what they were offering & not just a scam. Anyway, I made the purchase on the basis that I’d give it a try and if it wasn’t any good I’d ask for my money back.

I was desperate to lose weight quickly. I wanted to look good for my college classmates, and wanted my old friends from my hometown to remember me at my former, healthy weight. I also didn’t want my parents to make any more remarks about my weight gain. Within two weeks, I had nearly lost all the weight I wanted – and had even managed to tone up. My advice is, you don’t need to spend a fortune to reach your goal, just like i do. If you do need more information then please surf at

Lisa asks…

Will I lose weight with the removal of a dermoid cyst?

I had a large dermoid cyst and my right ovary removed 2 weeks ago. Will I lose weight now the cyst is removed? I know I will lose whatever the weight of the cyst was but will I lose weight much easily now?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I doubt it. You may just have a bit of a smaller stomach because it isnt there anymore. It really has nothing to do with your metabolism. My friend had one removed a few months ago and its just normal for her, except she doesnt feel pregnant.

Carol asks…

How can I quickly and easily tone and lose weight on my inner thighs?

I go to the beach in a week. I know there isn’t a quick fix, but I want to do whatever I can as quickly as possible.

I’m eating slim fast for breakfast and lunch. I’m eating a low calorie meal for dinner. I’m running a little over half a mile a day. I’m also doing push ups, crunches, and plies.

What else can I do?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Really hardcore pilates. My favorite one is where you lie flat on your back on the floor, then you lift one leg and hold it for a few seconds. Alternate this for both legs and do reps until you can’t do them anymore.

Also, do yoga when you go to sleep and when you first wake up. Make it part of your routine, like brushing your teeth. It won’t make you lose weight, but it will lengthen your legs and improve your posture.

Nancy asks…

How to lose weight without exercise?

I’m 14 and I have a little muffin top and love handles. What is a natural way to lose weight fast? Is there natural pills you can take at the natural store to help lose weight? I’m desperate! I weigh about 135 pounds and I’m not happy about it! What could I do?? Thanks!

weight loss cardiff answers:

You can insert exercise in your everyday life easily.

Instead of getting a ride walk more. Have your parents park farther. Walk 15 minutes a day. If that is too hard for you then I am not sure.

Now you can lose weight naturally. Just keep this in mind for food.

Avoid salts, avoid processed foods. High protein plus low fat=very good. High fiber means you will be hungry less and full more.

Yogurt has been proven to reduce fat.

Eat more vegetables. Eat oatmeal with fruit for breakfast. For lunch eat a salad, rye sandwhich something. Don’t eat carbs after 8 pm. Eat fastfood or out only once or twice a week.

Don’t drink soda, diet or otherwise. You do this and you can lose 2 plus pounds a week. A month about 10 pounds. You should be find in one or two months of just some basic eating habits.

No pills. Seriously though try oatmeal and fruit, not instant, drink a full cup of water and bet you won’t be hungry as you were eating cereal.

Sandy asks…

How can a 13 year old overweight girl lose weight without telling their parents?

like i basically said above, i weigh 175 lbs…im 5’5 and almost 5’6…how can i lose weight easily? and fast? i havent been eating junk food…but i normally odnt eat a lot of it either. HELP PLZ!

weight loss cardiff answers:

For someone who is your height you aren’t as over weight as you might think you are. Just try to eat right and get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. Every if you take 3 10 min walks a day that still considered exercise. You need to stop worrying about your weight and start worrying about your health. You can be healthy and still be heavier than other people your age and height. By the way muscle weights more than fat. So all these stick thin girls weighing 95 pounds and fainting from not eating have no muscle tone (which by the way guys find a toned girl way more appealing than someone who looks cancer stricken) and are not as healthy as you. Good luck!

How to lose weight without getting excess skin?

Hey guys!

I was involved in a serious car accident a few months ago and gained a lot of weight as I broke my back and was unable to walk. After intense physio therapy I am now able to exercise and walk as normal. I currently weigh 18stone and I am 20 years old. I am eating well but I’m so scared that I am going to lose the weight and have excess skin.

So I was wondering if anybody knew how I could lose weight without getting the excess skin

Many thanks in advance to people who comment.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Quick tips to lose weight can be incredibly powerful, as they do not take much effort, but they do get results. We make weight loss much harder than it actually is. I am going to give you three quick tips that you can easily incorporate into your daily life that can help you start to lose weight without any real effort.

Tip 1 – Drink Water

This seems too easy, but there are lots of studies that back this up. If you drink 2 cups of water before you eat a meal, you will lose weight. Some scientists say that it is because your body thinks that you are already full so you eat less. Other scientists think that the water somehow helps your body to digest the food more efficiently. Regardless, it works, and it is easy!

Tip 2 – Brush Your Teeth After a Meal

The simple act of brushing your teeth after a meal will make a marker that meal time is over. It is funny how the mind works, but simple markers like this can be very powerful. And besides, who wants to eat anything with that terrible toothpaste aftertaste?

Tip 3 – Snack Away

Snacking between meals is good – if you snack on the right things. Much of our diet damage is done by overeating at meals, so if you are not as hungry going in, you make better choices. Now, if you choose a candy bar or ice cream as a snack, that doesn’t help. However, if you pick a fruit or a vegetable, the fiber helps you to feel full and no damage is done to your diet.

Good luck ,my friend
