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!

weight loss cardiff answers:

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.

Maria asks…

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 🙂

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.

Jenny asks…

How to lose weight without exercise?

How to lose weight without exercise? I’m looking for some good alternatives because I just don’t have time to exercise each day, but I need to lose weight.

I’m about 6ft and weight about 210, but I want to get down to 180. Right now I eat 3 meals a day, about 3000 calories, but everything is pretty healthy. Vegetables, meat, etc. Should I start eating differently or what?

I’m just looking for some goods tips or ways on how to lose weight without exercise. Thanks!

weight loss cardiff answers:

You’ll need to cut your calorie intake to 1500 calories and find some form of exercise you enjoy or can at least stick to,because if you lose weight by cutting calories you’ll eventually lose muscle tone too and you won’t lose as much weight anymore.walk at a brisk pace every day and try some strength exercises too because the more muscle you build the more weight you lose.good luck!

Richard asks…

How Do you lose weight without exercising?

How do you lose weight without exercising?…And if you train your muscles and gain more muscle will you actually gain more weight?

weight loss cardiff answers:


Diets have come and gone and a new one will be invented tomorrow promising you everything and delivering very little. That is because they are considered something you go on and then go off. In other words, they are temporary. That is not to say they are useless just that they will never give you continued success unless you change some things permanently.

What is a Diet Good for?

Diets have their place in your weight loss goals. First of all, they can be beneficial to jump starting your metabolism. Kind of a fire starter if you will. A jump-start will give you more energy and the initial weight loss can boost your self-confidence.

However, you will need to be ready to make some whole life changes if you want the results to be permanent. What are some changes you will need to make? Well a lot of that depends on you.

Lifestyle Changes- Fast Food

Are you a fast food junkie who eats out at least a couple of times per week? If so, you will find that you have plenty of company. Many people are so busy that the drive through is a perfect solution for dinner, lunch and even breakfast. The problem is many have no idea that one meal from a fast food restaurant can contain nearly a whole day’s caloric intake.

One popular fast food joint has a burger that is 750 calories! The burger alone is a third of your recommended daily allowance; add the fries and a drink and you are done for the day.

Does this mean you can never have fast food again? Not necessarily, but it will mean that you have to be aware of what you are eating. Most fast food places have a website that contains all the nutritional information for the foods they serve. Check them out then make you a list of “safe” fast foods.

Exercise Changes

If you never move your body more than from the house to the car to work and back you will have a hard time losing weight and keeping it off. The human body functions best when there are periods of exercise. It increases mood stabilizers in the blood stream and best of all burns calories.

While you are on your diet, take the time to incorporate exercise into your life. You will feel better and increase your weight loss rates exponentially. Start with a walk, park further away from the store or your office. Then as you progress, find time to walk more or jog. Whatever you can comfortably fit in your schedule will be a great place to start.

Healthy Eating

This is absolutely the most important part of all. While you are on your chosen diet, you will want to become familiar with healthier food choices. Find ways to make your favorite foods better for you. Can you substitute ground turkey for ground beef in some recipes? Learn new recipes that include fresh fruits and vegetables.

You see your body needs several things to function at a healthy level. Proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals just to name a few. You also need certain fats to cushion joints and protect your vital organs. Create a lifestyle eating plan that brings all of these elements into play and you will feel amazing and best of all you will be able to lose weight and keep it off.

If you are looking for a proven diet with which you can lose weight in short time, Fat Loss 4 Idiots is the answer.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Steven asks…

P90X workout questions :D?

Hey. I’ve come across this workout program thats meant to get u looking ripped in 90 days. Im considering buying it but just have a few questions and queries. Thanks for helping.

1) does it really work? (obvious question)

2) Will it get rid of body fat effectively? (im over weight but not too fat, will it get rid of belly and man boobs?)

3) I’ve heard that this program might make u put weight on? Is that true? Im definately not looking to bulk up too much or gain weight. Im looking to lean down and lose body fat so that all my muscles come out and are easily visible, and so thats it looks sweet lol.

4) would u recommend i buy it? ( i do not want to gain any fat, just lean down nicely)
Please feel free to give any other relevant information that will help me

Thanks a lot guys in advance 🙂
Im 17 years old by the way.

weight loss cardiff answers:

I’ve been through the program twice this past year…Classic version and Doubles version.

1. It’s a very good program but if you think you’re going to look like the guys in the infomercial just from doing the program, you’ll be disappointed. Those people didn’t get their results from JUST P90X. However, I still recommend it as a very good strength training and total body workout program.

2. I lost 10 lbs on the program and gained strength and muscle. Depending on how well you work the program and your eating habits, will determine if you lose fat on it or not. Remember, fat loss is about more calories burned a day than are consumed.

3. Since muscle tissue has weight, yes you may gain pounds. However muscle tissue also takes up less space than fat so if you are losing fat and gaining muscle you may gain weight or see no change in the scales, but notice your clothes becoming loose. If you don’t need to lose fat on it and you just gain muscle, then you may put on weight with your muscle size…but that’s preferred tissue for most people and the more muscle you have, the faster your metabolism. If you don’t want to bulk up, do the lean version which is lighter weights and more reps on each exercise. It’s explained in the program…6-8 reps for the people wanting to get bulky muscle, 10-12 reps for the people wanting to be more lean.

4. I do recommend it and I will go through it again. I’ve been off it since over the Summer but still occasionally use one of the workouts from it in my daily program for variety. I used the Cardio X program just last week because the weather wasn’t suitable for me to go running.

Take the fit test first to see if you are ready for it (it’s not a program for beginners)…if you are ready then it’s worth your time. You do need some equipment to work the program most effectively though…resistance bands or dumbbells, resistance bands or a pullup bar, and a yoga mat is helpful but not mandatory (but you do need a nice surface to lay on for part of the yoga program and some of the stretches).

See source link for the fit test…and good luck!
Bring It!

George asks…

Would you like to correct my English essay?

I have to write an essay about how obese Americans are suing Fast Food chains and if I agree with it or disagree.

For many years, all across America, consumers have been finding solace in reliability and availability of fast food. Big fast food chains, such as McDonald’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, and Jack In The Box, offer unbeatable prices but with those unbeatable prices comes a consequence. Many consumers would like to point the finger at the fast food industry for their poor health choices but the problem is not as simple as that. Countless circumstances can avoid this national epidemic such as exercise, better health choices, and alternative foods. Eager consumers have no problem picking up a juicy mouth-watering Big Mac or a sizzling bubbly large Dr. Pepper and devouring it without question, but when the consumers is faced with the issue of their obesity, they cry wolf and quickly search for the one to blame. Fast food chains are not to blame for obese Americans, obese Americans do not have the right to sue fast food chains for their obesity. The issue is a question of responsibility and accountability.
The main reason obesity in America is poor health choices. Countless consumers enter the fast food establishment without questioning how many calories, total fat, or sodium is in the product they order. Due to their ignorance, they are accumulating so many calories and therefore becoming more obese. If the consumers only took the time to consult with the restaurants employees about what their healthy choices are they would be more informed about the food the fast food chains serve. Instead of ordering an oozy sauced Big Mac at McDonald’s which has 540 calories, the consumer may want to try a blooming bright Fruit In Yogurt Purfait which only contains 380 calories. Jack In The Box offers a wide range of healthy food alternatives such as the Asian Chicken Salad with grilled chicken which only has 160 calories and the low fat Balsamic Dressing which only includes 20 additional calories. Burger King also offers a Veggie Burger which add up to 330 calories. Many healthy alternatives can help the consumers battle their obesity and also get on track to a more healthy lifestyle. Having better health choices will greatly improve the consumers knowledge of the food they eat and prevent them from ordering products that are greased in fat, powdered in sodium, or drenched in sugar.
Americans all across the nation are becoming increasingly more lazy, and this has a lot to do with the current obesity rate in America. If consumers are constantly consuming fast foods that are filled with fat the consumers are more likely going to have less energy and therefore will be more hesitant to performing physical activity. Americans who walk for 30 minutes a day can lose a significant amount of weight and eliminate the risk of heart disease. Consumers should get in the habit of living a more healthy lifestyle that include more fruits and vegetables in their diets and monitoring how much fast food they consume. Nuts and sea food, such as fish, salmon, and trout, help the metabolism when it comes to burning unwanted fat. Another important component that should not be overlooked is the power of water. Water can make the consumer feel more full during meals and prevent the consumer from overeating but this includes drinking a glass or two before meal times. Water curbs the metabolism and enables the consumer to digest their meals more effectively. Lastly watching how much the consumer eats is another important part of the process. Portion size is a hot topic and should be addresses more when it comes to eating habits. Consumers eat too much of a portion size, and this could lead to obesity very easily. Being more aware of how much the consumer is supposed to eat will help them tremendously in the long run.
Fast food restaurants in America serve fattening, sodium infested, and sugary foods. This does not hold fast food restaurants accountable for the millions of obese Americans in the world. There comes a time when the consumers must take responsibility for their actions instead of pointing the finger and blaming the fast food industry. The fast food industry does not force feed the consumer with these foods, It is a matter of choice, and the consumer should be more aware of the choices they make. There are so many alternatives for fattening fast food but requires the consumers to look for alternatives. Opening the consumers eyes to a whole new way of thinking may not be an easy task but can easily be feasible. Americans can exercise, order healthier food, or even replace a large soda for a bottle of water. The fast food industry is not to blame for obese Americans; The Americans that constantly eat out and gorge themselves with the most unhealthiest food choices are to blame. The consumers should know the different between right and wrong and take accountability and responsibility for the choices they make.

weight loss cardiff answers:

You don’t seem to have stuck to the subject – you talk about blame, you talk about pointing fingers, you discuss accountablity, but never once do you talk about people suing fast food chains – and that’s what you were supposed to be writing about.

How to lose weight easily at home?? (read description)?

i’m 16 and before you tell me that i’m too young to be feeling self conscious, just keep reading

so i work at a fast food restaurant and i’m an athlete .. not the best combination ..

.. i’ve been working there for 8 months now and since i started, i gained 7KG because we get free food in our breaks and well .. i have to eat something for lunch/dinner as there are no other food places around ..i don’t eat ALOT .. i try to eat the healthierishh foods they have which is actually nothing hahha but i’m aware of the fat and calories and stuff in all the food.

its like the end of winter atm and i really want to try lose all that fat from eating so much at work. The sport i do doesn’t really do anything in terms of weight loss, it just increases my muscles i guess haha .. i’m not overweight or anything .. i’m like average.. but i used to be on the borderline between normal and underweight ..

my scale is one of those that tells you what percentage of your body is fat/muscle/water/etc..
atm i’m 44% muscle .. and i guess thats ok? coz my sport involves ALOT of muscle haha..
i’m not neccessarily consious about my weight but i’d rather turn those kilos of fat into kilos of muscle haha.. i look ok and people say i look skinny but my legs are like HUGE.. its mostly muscle but the outside is like pretty much fat .. like FAT =

so how do i get rid of the fat on my thighs/calves and also around my stomach .. at home..

i’m at school/work/training pretty much ALL the time so i hardly spend time at home

what can i do at home that isn’t really time consuming … preferably thing’s you’ve tried that actually works 😛

Dude, bottom line: If you are active enough to feel tired after 30 minutes of whatever you’re doing, then you can eat whatever you want…I go to football practice 2 times a day for 3 hours each and sometimes I eat a whole pizza after.

Betty asks…

ok please help me! i’m going on a cruise in 2 weeks and i really need to lose some weight!?

I need to lose most of my weight in my stomach because i have a pooch and its not too pretty. I also need to lose a little fat in my legs but it isn’t my main focus. Also, I would like to lose enough weight so i can look good and have a little to gain back! I was thinking about 5-10 pounds would be great! I don’t lose weight easily so please help. Feel free to give my different exercise to try.

Thank you sooooo much! 10 points for the best answer and really works.

weight loss cardiff answers:

No offense but if you knew you were going on a cruise don’t you think should of asked this before it was just 2 weeks? Especially if you don’t lose weight easily? Just saying. But the only way you could lose that much in a small amount of time is to do high intensity cardio 5-6 days a week and be on a strict diet. No junk or processed foods. Lots of veggies, lean meat like chicken and fish, fruit, and three servings of dairy preferably not fat. Cut out pasta. Only have carbs and breakfast. Eat three meals a day with two snacks in between. And drink only water. And a lot of it. That’s about the most you can do. You’d have to work really hard though.
