How do I kick start my weight loss?

Hi Guys, I know that diet and exercise are the best way, and I do exercise regularly, normally 2 – 3 times a week. But I’ve just got back from holiday and got into some bad eating habits. I’m just looking for something natural to use alongside diet and exercise to give me a bit of a kick start with the weight loss! Im looking to lose about 14lb altogether. Thank you!!

There are many ways. First of all you can cut out your eating habits especially try to avoid food that contains high in calories such as meat . But sometimes you can also risk your own health , so be careful . But there are also many ways you can lose your weight if you really know the tips and tricks.

Here are a few tips to get you started

1. Eat fresh fruit instead of drinking fruit juice. Juice is often sweetened but fresh fruits have natural sugars. When you eat fruit, you are taking in a lot of fiber, which is needed by the body, and fruits of course are an excellent source of vitamins.

2. If you do have a craving for fruit juice then go for fresh fruit juice instead of these that contain artificial flavors and colors. Or even better, try making your own fruit juice taking care not to sweeten it with too many calories.

3. Choose fresh fruit to processed fruits. Processed and canned fruits do not have as much fiber as fresh fruit and processed and canned fruits are nearly always sweetened.

4. Increase your fiber intake. Like I mentioned, the body needs a lot of fiber. So try to include in your diet as many fruits and vegetables as you can.

5. Go crazy on vegetables. Vegetables are your best bet when it comes to losing pounds. Nature has a terrific spread when it comes to choosing vegetables. And the leafy green vegetables are your best bet. Try to include a salad in you diet always.

6. Eat intelligently. The difference between man and beast is that we are driven by intelligence while beasts are driven by instinct. Don’t just eat something because you feel like eating it. Ask you’re self whether your body really needs it.

7. Watch what you eat. Keep a watchful eye on every thing that goes in. Sometimes the garnishes can richer than the food itself. Accompaniments too can be very rich. Remember that it is the easiest thing in the world to eat something without realizing that it was something that you should not have eaten.

8. Control that sweet tooth. Remember that sweet things generally mean more calories. It is natural that we have cravings for sweet things especially chocolates and other confectionery. Take this weight loss tips seriously and go easy on theses things and each time you consume something sweet understand that it is going to add on somewhere.

9. Fix times to have meals and stick to it. Try to have food at fixed times of the day. You can stretch these times by half an hour, but anything more than that is going to affect your eating pattern, the result will either be a loss of appetite or that famished feeling which will make you stuff yourself with more than what is required the next time you eat.

10. Eat only when you are hungry. Some of us have the tendency to eat whenever we see food. We use parties as an excuse to stuff our selves. Understand that the effect of a whole week of dieting can be wasted by just one day’s party food.

Mark asks…

What are some exercises I can do without losing weight?

I am wanting to be more active in my life. I need some excersises to help me become more active WITHOUT losing weight. Please help!! Thanks.

weight loss cardiff answers:

It’s a fallacy to think that exercising is a good way to lose weight. You have to exercise a heck of a lot to lose weight; the real secret to weight loss is *eating less*.

So, you can exercise as much as you want. 1lb of fat = 4000 calories; it takes 1 hour of VERY HARD exercise to burn off 1000 calories. Just a single 200g bar of chocolate has 1000 calories in it. Given how most people eat, and *what* they eat, you should be able to see why so many get fat so easily. Assuming your own diet is as bad(!) as normal, you’ll be having to spend several hours a day in the gym before you have a hope of losing weight!

Robert asks…

what high intensity work outs can i do at the gym?

i want to lose weight! mainly in my hip and thigh area because its the most difficult for me to lose weight. I lose weight easily on my stomach, that’s the first thing you notice slimmer and my face. I go on the treadmill, elyptical for my cardio and sometimes zumba. But what else can i do?

weight loss cardiff answers:

You should build your exercise program around strength training (ST) because on ST offers the following.

• Stronger bones & increased mineral density (osteoporosis protection)
• Stronger body & musculature (improved protection from injury)
• More robust organic and systemic fitness (more survivable in crisis)
• Improved cardio-vascular function (better than “cardio”)
• Higher basal metabolic rate (50 cal/day/pound of muscle)
• Easier fat loss (more efficient lipid consumption)
• Body sculpting (spot hypertrophy)
• Slower natural loss of muscle mass over age 30
• Minimal wear & tear

And, those are only some of the benefits. There are plenty more which are very technical…such as how ST prevents the return of lost body fat.

It’s unfortunate, however, that there are few places for a novice to go to learn how to do ST properly. So, you’re probably going to be stuck with whatever help you can get from coaches at school, personal trainers or gym rats at your gym, friends & relatives, etc. The internet has very poor resources because they’re almost all either from the bodybuilding culture which is a terrible place to get information or commercial websites which just want your “hits” so they can get more money for their ads or they want to sell you junk you don’t need. My advice is train like a man and use the following resources.

1. Watch all of Scooby’s 180+ videos here –> . (Scooby is a little too “old school” and is not up with the latest science so he’s not 100% correct. He promotes some myths such as 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day which is just wrong. He promotes the use of some supplemnts against the NIH warnings and recommends caffeine which without sufficient cautions, etc. However, he’s the best I’ve been able to find…and I looked at every website I’ve seen mentioned in this forum in the past year.)

2. Next, read everything here so you can learn a little anatomy and kinesiology as well as how to perform exercise in good form –>

3. Finally, buy this book and study it (you can skip over the heavy science stuff) –>

If you do girl exercises, you won’t be doing your body any favors. They are the worst because you spend much more time and energy (and maybe $$$ too) for fewer results. It’s a good idea to stay away from websites, books, magazines, etc which capitalize on the fact your female. You have the same muscles (almost) as a man and if, for example, you went through a tough Army or Marine Corps basic training program, you would be trained just like the men.

As for your body sculpting, here’s all you or anyone can do.
Add fat
Lose fat
Add muscle
Lose muscle
You probably don’t want to lose muscle or add fat. So, add muscle and lose fat. And, where you lose the fat is not anything you can control.

It is not possible to lose fat only from a specific part of your body of your choosing. Where your body stores and removes fat is determined by your genetics and there is nothing you can do to change that short of radical procedures such as liposuction. And, in general, where it stores fat first is where it will lose it last and visa versa. The world of health and fitness has an unfortunate abundance of myths and spot reduction is one of them. There is no exercise, no pill, no supplements, no spa treatment, and no natural way to spot reduce. Your only choice is to create a caloric deficit with diet and exercise, burn fat, and wait for it to leave the desired body parts.


Good luck and good health!!

Donald asks…

How can I lose weight at home?

I want to lose at least 30 pounds by next Summer so I can feel beautiful.

There isn’t a way for me to go to the gym. If there was, I would have already got a membership. I just want to know ways I can lose weight at home without equipment (dumbbells, machines, etc.).

I am already a vegetarian and have been for a year and three quarters now. Eating healthy is already accomplished. It’s the factor of working out… Any specific routine? Or recommendations, at least?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Tip 1: LOTS of water! ~ On a regular daily basis.. You would probably drink a bottle or two of water. But… If you would like to lose some weight… You’ve got to drink lots of water! Maybe even up to 40 ounces a day or even 50 if you choose! Everyday I drink around 20 ounces of water. And if I wanted to lose some weight, I would probably drink at least 35 ounces of water a day. But don’t drink too much water… That’s about 60. That’s way to much for ya, girl! And also… Drinking plenty of fresh water throughout the day can make you not so hungry too, so just drinking some water can be so great to your beautiful body !!

Tip 2: Plenty of fresh fruit! ~ Yeah, like I said… Don’t eat or drink too much! That’s important. So, let’s talk a little more about fresh fruit now together. Some delicious fresh fruit I’d like for you to enjoy are: Strawberries (about 5 of them), a little watermelon, and some delicious grapes! Don’t eat all of these fruits in one day – that’s for sure! Yeah… Too much is important! A lot.

Tip 3: Exercise! ~ Exercise is fun! Jumping or even just walking can make you lose weight! Yes… It can. It’s hard to believe but true. Try your best to go outside and run for about 10 minutes or even 20 if you really want to lose weight. Exercising is great for your body. It really does make you lose weight easily and fast. Or even just go for a 30 minute walk every day to lose weight. I’ve lost weight by doing that too!

Tip 4: Size does matter! ~ Limit how much you eat. This is very important too. Instead of eating 5 or 6 strawberries, eat 4 if you’d like… And stuff like that. And girl, I know that whatever you’re eating might be so delicious, but still, limit how much you eat it! It will probably be very hard to do this sometimes, but you just have to do it! And I’ve had to do this a lot too when I’m in the mood for some weight-losing.

Tip 5: Foods ~ Don’t eat those boring and very sugary cookies over there, and eat some delicious celery and peanut butter if you choose! Forget about those plain chips and sugary candy, and hand yourself some amazingly tasty banana, apple or sweet cherry! I think you’ll love the fruits like I surely do 🙂

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Donna asks…

Are TV dinners such as lean cuisine and stouffers healthy dinner options for weight loss?

I’ve heard they are good for losing weight (as long as you exercise) and good sources of protein. Are they good for weight loss and if not what are other options?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The two that you mentioned aren’t necessarily unhealthy for you, but read the labels carefully to see if they contain a lot of salt or partially hydrogenated oils (if the latter, don’t buy them if possible).

I would not call them “good for weight loss” but I wouldn’t say they are unhealthy, either.

In addition to exercise, the best way to lose weight is to prepare most of your own foods, so that you control the ingredients and because processed foods often contain lots of stuff that you don’t want to eat a much of (this is because of BAD doctors’ and government studies in the early 1960s that made cholesterol out to be the main cause of heart disease–and that’s a lie, it isn’t.).

So, prepare and eat:

*High protein
*Lots of fresh fruits and veggies
*Plenty of fiber (whole grain breads, cereals if you eat cereal for breakfast). My favorite bread is Roman Meal.

You can be grill master for the protein, fresh fruit can simply be purchased and put in a bowl, and veggies don’t require a lot of preparation (just steam them or cook them in water in the microwave for just a few minutes). So this is all quite easy to make.

Drinking green tea is also helpful. Sweeten it with honey, not sugar (brown sugar is okay, though).

I also recommend three supplements: ginseng; and those that you can find at the links below.

John asks…

What weight-loss exercises can you do on an injured ankle?

I sprained my ankle 2 months ago and am looking for exercises that I can do that won’t reinjure my ankle.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Definitely upper body weight training….

For cardio, maybe you can do something like the cycle machine of elliptical machine, since those are more low impact….your foot never leaves the pedals.

Last of all…. There is always pilates and yoga…… Very easy on the ankles for the most part.not sure how much weight loss is involved in these 2 though. I lost 75 pounds by dieting and exercising, and it only took like 6 months. I did cardio and lots of weight lifting…. 5 or 6 days a week.

Linda asks…

What are your thoughts on teenagers receiving weight loss surgery? Denies the real problem or life saving?

After recent increases in the number of teenagers getting gastric bypasses and other types of surgery, it is widely becoming accepted quickly. However, is it right? Do you think if it saves lives, of course! Or, alternatively, do you think that these kids should approach weight loss from a wholistic perspective (dealing with their emotions through psychological counselling, complimented with education about proper nutrition and exercise?)

weight loss cardiff answers:

I think the surgery is an extreme measure, and not really appropriate for teens. Teens can still change their lifestyle fairly easily. The surgery is the easy way out. Not only that, but 6 out 8 adults who have had the surgery that I know personally gained all the weight back within 5 years. Surgery is an extreme measure, but you still have to change your lifestyle. Without that change, it doesnt matter how many or what kind of proceedures you have, you will always gain the weight back bc you are still living the same unhealthy lifestyle.
