Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Thomas asks…

What is a good workout plan to lose weight and get toned?

I am 5’4″ and I weigh about 125.
I am finally joining the gym again but I am at a loss as to where I should start. I am looking to drop about 15 pounds and tone up my stomach and thighs, and maybe my arms a bit.
Any specific tips?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Running in general

“A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?” Albert Einstein

The Einstein Diet…

Lemon water, with the lemons coming from freshly squeezed lemons, which will help detox the body of excess fat and toxins.

A variety of raw high carb/low fat fruit (do not juice or blend, because chewing properly is important for digestion due to amylase).

Must have green grapes and ambrosia apples 24/7.

Other Information…

Vegetables/legumes are 2nd best, but may be needed due to finance or type 1 diabetes, in which case, I’d suggest getting a variety of salad recipes.

Sprouted grains are 3rd best, but may be needed due to finance.

*No meat and no cheese is a must, but if a person has trouble with not eating meat: shrimp/prawns, lobster & crab are the easiest meats to digest.

*Proper sleep, hydration, fresh air 24/7, eating sufficient carbs, and cardio (at least walking) is a must.

Putting on excess weight takes time, as does losing excess weight

Lizzie asks…

How long will it take me to lose 80 pounds?

I am a 16 year old 5ft 4in female that is 208lbs. I’ve always been a big girl my whole life but decided its time for a change. Since feb 2nd, I have been working out 6 times a week jogging/walking for 1 hr & 20 min on the bike. I no longer eat meat unless its chicken strips similar to the subway kind. I usually have a weight loss shake for breakfast, a fiber bar or bagel for lunch, salad for dinner(sometimes subway salad with no/minimal dressing) and the rest of the day I eat banana’s, grapes, cashews coming up to about 1000-1200 calories a day. I know that’s too little but I’m tired of being called fat. When do you think I’ll loose my weight by? Or at least slim down some

weight loss cardiff answers:

Okay, to get into shape , speed up your metabolism, rid yourself of excess fat and lose weight ,,,,,do as follows:

Stop drinking & smoking (if you do this regularly)
eat fruits & vegetables all you can (buy a slow cooker /food steamer & rice/pasta cooker to make it easy on you)…(vegetables might not seem “tasty”, like junk foods,, but can be as you aquire your taste to them..and are loaded with energy and nutrients)…avoid all junk food, cokes, sweets, etc…and drink mainly water (green tea , juice & milk being the other options you drink). If you eat meat ,,use only steamed, baking or grilled methods for preparing fish or chicken.

Also, do an hour of walking each day at least. Or some type of excercise.

* you should lose about 10 lbs per month

** for a very healthy “snack”..learn how to make “huumus” (look online for very easy recipe) fills you up and is very low in calories and is very tasty.

Sharon asks…

How much cardio do I need to lose weight?

How many hours of cardio per week do I need to do to lose weight?

I am actually doing 50 minutes of cardio 3 times per week, is that enough?

weight loss cardiff answers:

None. Any exercise will burn calories but no exercise will burn fat unless your diet allows it. You can burn fat in your sleep or you can run all day and never burn any fat. It all depends on your diet.

Fat loss is determined by calorie control, not by exercise. Good exercises for burning calories are walking, running, biking, swimming, and ANY other physical activity which makes you move a lot of weight for a long time. But NO exercise is good for burning fat if you eat too many calories because you can always eat more calories than you can burn.

Too many people waste energy and time because they do not understand this one simple point. The result is too often giving up in frustration, disuse of gym memberships they continue to pay for, and many other unnecessary problems not the least of which is a lack of success.

Cardio is not for fat loss. It’s for maintaining cardio-vascular fitness. If you want to burn fat, just learn how to eat right and control your body composition with portion size.

Here is how we should all eat according to the US National Institute of Health who are among the best health professionals in the world and the people doctors listen to in the US.

Eat varied, wholesome, and high quality foods such that your daily caloric intake is about equal to your daily caloric burn while keeping your macro nutrient ratios at about 55/25/20 (%calories from carbs/fats/protein). Only slight changes should be made in the macro nutrient ratios to accommodate the extreme demands of special activities such as extreme athletics or inactivity due to illness.

Note: Here are the details in case you’re interested:

You get to make the food choices (no supplements without a doctor’s recommendation) based on your location, culture, available foods, personal preferences, personal resources, food allergies, etc. However, the words “varied”, “wholesome”, and “high quality” are important. And, you should consume your food in 4-6 daily meals with healthy snacks between such that you’re nourishing yourself every two hours when awake.

VARIED means a variety of foods including fruits, dairy, meats, vegetables, grains, nuts, etc.
WHOLESOME means as unprocessed, unrefined, nutritious as is practical.
HIGH QUALITY means using the best ingredients, the least contaminants or fillers or unnecessary chemicals, etc.

•FAT LOSS: If you want to lose fat, simply adjust your portion size (the amount you take in at meals and snacks) down such that your daily caloric intake is about equal to your BMR. If you eat your BMR in calories daily, you will have plenty of nutrition and food choices and all of your activity will go toward burning fat. Most people can lose one pound per week averaged over the term of the diet by eating their BMR. You can calculate your BMR here —>

Nutrient tracking is necessary to ensure you have the optimal caloric intake and macro nutrient balance. For most people, tracking is only required for fat loss because of the difficulty in cutting intake and nutrients while maintaining digestive and appetite satisfaction. Tracking makes it necessary to read labels, look up food nutrients, record data, plan meals and recipes, etc. And, as annoying as it may be to have to track, it is easier to do today than ever before with the help of website such as My Fitness Pal —> . And, once the fat loss dieter reaches goal weight, tracking my be discontinued. Here’s my tracking as an example –> . Tracking will also force you to make good food choices because bad ones will either drive your caloric intake over the limit or create periods of hunger in waking hours. Ideally you want all your hunger to be while you’re sleeping.

CHEATS – Another benefit of tracking is planning “cheats”. “Cheats” are great because they ensure you can stay on track but still enjoy some of your birthday cake or have that pizza to celebrate a holiday of decadence. “Cheating” is important because there’s more to life than just dieting.

BANKS – You can also “bank” calories simply by adding up all the calories you’ve saved by eating below your limit over the past week and then indulging yourself by that much excess without interfering with your fat loss. It’s like putting calories in the bank for use at the end of the week. Cool huh?

I can’t stress the importance of tracking enough. Trying to control your body composition without tracking is like driving blindfolded. You know where you want to go but you can’t see the hazards so you will eventually run into trouble.

Good luck and good health!!

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Donna asks…

Is eating a little less than 1200 calories a day bad for weight loss?

I’ve recently started eating a lot healthier and planning my meals different (breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner) and I find myself feeling all around better. Food is the last thing on my mind and I have barely any cravings! Although my goal is around 1200 calories, I always find myself coming in just under around 1100 or so. I googled it and people were saying that’s really bad and puts your body in starvation mode, but my body doesn’t feel like it’s in starvation mode at all! And I really don’t want to be eating when I’m not hungry, but I definitely don’t want to slow down my metabolism and progress.

So is 1100 too little for my body and will overall be bad for my weight loss? Also, I’m 5’6 and 180lbs and I burn around 300 calories a day from exercise!

weight loss cardiff answers:

When you are only eating and/or drinking 1100 calories it can hurt you more than help you. You need to increase your calories to more like 1500 and keep up with burning the calories you are burning. Cardio can help greatly with the weight process, but make sure you are taking a multi vitamin to help with vital nutrients you may be missing.

Good luck with your journey

Charles asks…

What is the difference between weight loss and fat loss? Which of the two is recommended more than the other?

I was under the impression that fat loss leads to weight loss or vice versa but it seems both are different. Can anyone explain the difference??
and I want to get any advise/tips for fat/weight loss… thank you

weight loss cardiff answers:

Weight loss could be fat loss + muscle loss + water loss. This sets you up for rebound weight gain. The water loss will come back. The loss muscle will be replaced with fat when the weight comes back. Weight loss alone that is not ALL fat loss is not sustainable. Weight loss can be achieved via dieting but fat loss can only be achieved via a sensible diet and exercise. Fat loss is sustainable on the long term as you will most likely build on your muscle reserves while you lose fat. Fat loss is correct weight loss.

Carol asks…

How can I lose weight by summer vacation?

I seriously need to lose about 10-20 pounds before the end of May. I am around the age of 13 and I’m not just losing weight to look skinnier, I am trying to lose weight and get more exercise so that I can do more activities in the summer without getting exhausted very easily. What are some exercises I can do to lose weight around my arms, waist, and legs. And also some healthy food suggestions.
Please help.
Thank you.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Buy a weighted hula hoop. It works and it’s really easy and doesn’t take up much space, you can even do it inside if you make a little room. Just make sure you get the right size and weight: between 1 1/2 – 2lb (the heavier, the easier to keep it going, too heavy and it’ll be TOO easy, you won’t see results). I’ll put a chart below where you can figure out what size you are.

The idea is to do it for roughly 30 minutes a day in SHORT bouts. So, hula hoop for two minutes hard, then stop, let your heart slow down, and then do it again. I recommend you do it while watching TV. Watch your show, and hoop during the commercials. There are about 22 minutes of commercials during an hour long show.

Make sure you keep it up. It’s really not hard once you get going and it’s more fun than skipping rope, or running, with generally the same results. I’m not saying it won’t take effort, because it will. Rule of thumb is if you don’t feel it, it’s probably not doing anything.

Plus, it’s a cardio/toning excersize. You lose weight and tone up at the same time.

For healthy food, first find out how many calories you can eat a day (Chart below), then make sure you don’t eat over you’re daily limit.

Strawberries and carrots are really good snack foods, because they’re healthy and have very little calories, so it’s hard to eat too many. Other water fruits (Melons, berries) are good, as well as any fruits and vegetables really. Eggs are healthy, easy to make, and they’re good for you. Drink lots of water. If you really want to get healthy, change out what you’d normally drink for water. Water has zero calories, so you won’t be wasting calories on juice or pop. Milk, although it has calories, is still good for you. Drink a glass a day, for the calcium if nothing else.

Hope that helped a little 🙂

David asks…

Is it possible to lose weight without exercise?

Is it possible to lose weight without exercise? I have recently injured my legs and arms and im gaining weight and im wondering if I can go on a diet that would lower my weight. If so what should i eat/drink alot? Can someone plan out a diet for me?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Yes you always can. I’m not sure how many of us realize that intensive cardio exercise such as jogging and gym will NOT BURN FAT.

The Reason is Intense Aerobics and Exercise only burn mainly carbohydrates for energy,
not fat tissue.

If you over-exert yourself and your breathing and heart rate become too elevated
then your body will burn mainly carbohydrates.

However, your goal is NOT To burn Carbohydrate Calories, your goal is to burn stored
BodyFat and Lose 10lbs in A Week.

All you need now is to be on diet and to Lose 10 lbs is always possible.

You need to consume a balance diet plan foods which are made up of:

i. Lean proteins,
ii. Fruit and vegetables, and
iii. Sources of fat come from whole foods (such as cottage cheese or eggs).
Iv. Starchy carbohydrates (such as oats and pasta).

Divide your meals into 4 and that should be eaten at a minimum of 2 1/2 hours apart.

There is no calorie or carb counting, no limit on portion size, so eat until you feel your stomach is OK.

You can lose 10 lbs within a week with this diet plans, which consists of 2 type:-

1. Online Diet Generator – If you want to lose weight MORE QUICKLY. It generates your menu in just seconds.

2. 10 Weight Loss Rules- If you would rather lose weight more “casually” (without having to follow a specific diet) then the second weight loss program which is a collection of which you can use to lose weight in a much more “casual” way.

To lose weight you need to manipulate which types of calories enter your body at each meal.

The first thing you must do is learn the 3 types of calories, and which calories are in each type of food that you eat.

Some of sample foods made of Protein and Carbs (Carbohydrates) are :-


* Lean Roast Beef

* Cottage Cheese (low fat)

CARBS(Carbohydrates) FOODS

* Mixed Salad (only lettuce, tomatoes, and
veggies allowed)

* Dressing should be Low Cal dressing. Use sparingly,
you should not smother the salad with too much
* Bread (should be “oat” or “bran” type bread

All you need is just rotate this Protein and Carbohydrate meals for One week and you will lose 10 lbs within that.

You need to maintain your diet and eat for rest of your life the food you like. To maintain your new slim body you will have the list of some general “rules”. These rules are meant to be “general” and “simple” because you can easily maintain your new body by just using a the simple and general rules.

For example, the rule about breaking up your daily food intake into 4 meals may “seem” simple, but it can control how slim you stay in the future.

You will be also presented with rules about what to avoid when grocery shopping, how to order food at restaurants, and how to order at fast food establishments.

The late night eating habit and other non-healthy eating habits also been tackled.

These rules are “”simple sounding”” but they are enough to maintain your new body for the rest of your life.

Have you ever heard of Fat Loss for Idiots or Weight Loss 4 Idiots? It’s one of the most sellable e-books ever written that talks about losing fat easily and quickly. For a certain price, the company that sells this e-book allows you to access it and read its contents for a good 90 days.

If you wish, there’s a short YouTube video about it:…

To help you know more about it, here are some of the things it covers.

What is in it?

Generally, the Fat Loss for Idiots is a guide to losing weight and fat as the name implies. In the book, you will be able to read the rules involved in weight loss. These rules, also known as “10 Idiot Proof Rules of Weight Loss” are easy to understand and follow as they are stated in the simplest terms. Aside from the simplified terms, the directions are also simple and short making it easy to understand and do.

Another thing that the e-book contains is the diet generator. The book will give you meal plans that will last you for 11 days. So for each day, the book has a menu for you to follow.

What does it promise?

Fat Loss for Idiots promises a lot of things. For the most part, it promises to make you really lose weight. To be specific, the ebook is able to make you lose 9 pounds every eleven days. With the ebook, you can be sure to lose a lot of weight in a short time.

Another big promise the ebook gives is that it can make you lose weight using a healthy meal plan. Many weight lose plans make you lose weight by skipping and scrimping on some things that your body needs such as fat. With the ebook, you can be sure that you won’t be having any of this. As a matter of fact, it will give you a menu of foods that are complete of the nutrients that your body needs. With this, you can be sure that even if you are losing weight, you are also well nourished.

Unlike other weight loss guides that specifically tell you certain things such as forcing you to eat meat, the Fat Loss for Idiots respects your diet preferences. With this, anybody can take part of the program.

What are the recipes in the diet generator?

Most of the time, people get turned off by diet plans because they either contain complicated recipes or make them eat prepackaged foods. As you can see, these diet plans make you shell out more money than you want to. With them, you can be sure that sooner or later, your body will lose weight or your wallet will.

The recipes in the ebook’s diet generator are simple. They are easy to prepare. Another thing is that the recipes are also cheap. Because of these descriptions, many have said that the diets are “Spartan”.

Sandy asks…

How can i easily and quickly lose weight?

I need to lose weight to stay healthy. I need a way to lose weight without exercising too much. Please help.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Eat three meals a day, No snacks. Only buy fresh fruit and healthy food: I know, it’ll seem like you have nothing to eat, but the thing is, if you’re not willing to eat it then you don’t need it/aren’t hungry enough. Still, eat those three meals: don’t skip meals or your body will go into storage mode. I was brought up this way and eating is actually an inconvenience to me… I’ll likely never be overweight. America’s problem with weight is because food is too desirable, whereas it should be only life-sustaining.

3 Easy Tips To Lose Fat

Fat loss does not have to be difficult, especially if you have a few tricks up your sleeve. By this I don’t mean I would ever want you to take a dangerous, radical approach to your fat loss but only one that would be healthy and prove great results at the same time.

I have had many clients, friends and family members ask me, “Isabel, is there a way I can drop my first few pounds of fat quickly and easily?” Yes, there is. It will require a few dietary changes on your part, but the results are incredible. I have had hundreds of people use these tips with great success, easily losing their first 10-15lbs of unwanted fat.

Here are my 3 Simple and Easy Fat Loss Rules:
1. Don’t eat anything that is white.

Name every single food that is white and chances are you shouldn’t be eating it: bread, pasta, crackers, most cereals, flour based products, white potatoes, white rice, and pasteurized dairy and cheese are all no-no’s during this time. (Healthy foods like cauliflower, chicken, turkey, fish, white pork are all exceptions to this rule).

2. Only drink water, NOTHING else!

How about coffee? Just to keep any possible withdrawal headaches at bay, one small cup of organic black coffee. Can you add half and half?.Well is it white? Drink a minimum of 1/2 of your bodyweight in ounces of water each day (ex. If you weigh 200 lbs, you need to drink 100 ounces) to really see the fat fall off.

3. Don’t eat anything with the word wheat in the ingredients list.

What if it’s whole wheat? Look, if the word starts with W and ends in T and has the letters h e a in between, you can’t eat it. This includes bread, pasta, crackers and cereal. Many packaged snack foods also contain wheat so be sure to read the ingredients list carefully.

Are you up for this challenge? Apply these easy fat loss rules to your own eating plan for the next 2 weeks and I know you will be seeing some amazing fat loss results in no time.
