Slimming world, diet plan, free foods, EE?

Hello World!

The fatty needs to go so I’m starting the Slimming world diet. I don’t live anywhere near a Slimming World club unfortunately so want to do all the dieting on my own as I’m really not a wizz with computers either so wouldn’t have a clue how to join and maintain the online group.

I was just wondering if anyone has a list of the free foods/syns book of even a copy of the books?
I really wanna get stuck in so need as much information as I can get!

Also looking for a website or something that I can do a personalized diet plan on?
Also when on the cross trainer any tips like drinking water 20 minutes before or do 20 minute blocks and a 5 minute rest of a warm down or something?

Share your experiences please! ;D x

Please help me ;D xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Best detox diet plan is choosing the diet plan that really suitable with you. It can be said that the same diet plan can have the different result for different people. Basically all kinds of diet plans are good to make healthy body. It is true but good diet plan cannot be the best diet plan for your bodyat the same time

David asks…

P90x results without the diet plan?

I’m a 16 year old guy but I’m using my sister’s account. My parents are not allowing me to follow the diet plan of P90x because they said I have to eat what they prepare. So what results can I expect, I eat pretty healthy food and fast food once a week because my parents buy me it and I cannot say no. My diet is made up of bread, meat, rice, dairy, and fruits. Also that occational fat food once a week. So what results can I see. I eat around 2500 caloies a day 125 pounds and 5’2″. I want to gain muscle mass and lower fat so will I see these results?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The diet plan IS a huge part of the program..but you will see some results if you eat healthy. That fast food is pretty killer once a week. Try to get a salad without dressing because the dressing they throw on there is pretty bad for you. Look online to try and find the best healthy items at these fast food places because often times the items that are billed as “healthy” have MORE calories because of the sauces they put on.

Check out eat this not that its a book about what is better to eat when you have to eat there.

Nancy asks…

One meal a day diet plan?

Surfing the net, i came over the one meal a day diet ( warrior diet) which is where you eat one big meal at night ( for the whole day). This apparently works? because you can’t eat as much as you eat for teh whole day and you just eat that one meal and u can sleep satisfied or something.
did anybody try out this diet? there are many success stories,but also there are a lot of ppl telling me to eat 6 meals a day blah blah blah, it’s detrimental to health.. etc

i really don’t know what to do. My goal is to lose 10 kg AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. i am willing to do anything for this. i don’t care HOW severe the diet plan is. Does anyone have any ideas or recommendatiosn? PLEASE HELP ME! i am really desperate. I have gained so much in such a little time from binging, and my pants don’t fit anymoerand i can’t buy new ones 🙁
please give me advice. One meal a day? 6 meals ad ay? what kind of diet plan? please help me and share your stories!! I am a body type where everything i go goes to my legs and thighs.. (seriously) on the top, i am bony but bottom is so… .. yeahh. anyways
and doing muscle work ( on my legs ) is good for weight loss right? ( and then doing like eliptical after?) what is the best workout machine?
i juts want to lose 10 kg asap and need advice on possibly anything. just help me.. please i am really desperate!
oh last question. would you recommend diet soda or vitamin water?

weight loss cardiff answers:

This diet plan won’t work. You will be starving all day, your metabolism will slow down and it’s not good to eat a huge diner. You should eat a big breakfast, a snack(fruit or veggie), a medium lunch, a fruit or veggie for afternoon snack and then a small diner. That’s the way that all people should lose weight, don’t try any type of diet that tells you to skip meals. You have to eat 5 or 6 meals a day to keep you full so you won’t bing.
You can lose 10kg if you try hard. Actually it’s not that hard. If you make the right choices and improve your habits you will succeed.
You don’t have to exercise a lot. 3 times a week for at least 30 min are enough. If you have an elliptical, you can jog or run or better -for me- go to the park to jog or run. It’s really relaxing…
You shouldn’t drink diet soda neither vitamin water. Prefer fresh vegetable or fruit juices and of course water!
Good luck!

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

James asks…

Any ideas for a healthy diet plan that works?

I am starting High school this year and I am really tired of being over weight. I need to lose a good amount of weight and I know I can’t do it over night. Everything I have tried hasn’t worked. Does anyone know a diet plan that works? I don’t necessarily want to change the way i am eating. I know I have to eat healthy but I don’t want to eat a cup of this and a handful of this. So if any one has a good diet plan that will work i would really appreciate it

weight loss cardiff answers:

Most diet plans work very well in the short term. The overwhelming majority of the participants who are on these diets will at some point stop the program and then regain about the same fat weight that they lost. My assumption is that you want to improve your health and start a lifestyle where you can maintain a healthy weight for the rest of your life.

If this is your goal, there is only one diet program that has worked for me. It is called a “whole plant based diet.” On this diet, your health will improve and you will feel so much better that you will not consider eating any junk food again. When you stop eating a healthy diet, you can feel the fat, salt, and sugar and you will restart your diet program because you want to feel good.

Dr. David Kessler (former head of the FDA) wrote about how salt, sugar, caffeine, and oil/fat are addictive foods. His advice is to break your addiction to processed foods. Convenience foods, fast foods, and even restaurant foods are loaded with unhealthy ingredients. When you stop eating unhealthy foods, many Americans experience withdrawal symptoms that they assume are hypoglycemic reactions or hunger. The symptoms are withdrawal from unhealthy food additives. When you start cleaning up your diet, you will experience headache, stomach ache, nervousness, irritability, and other symptoms associated with addiction. This will pass in 2-4 days and you will begin to feel better than you can remember.

Here is a list of foods you need to minimize or eliminate from your diet:

+ Refined salt and salty condiments
+ Sugar and refined carbohydrates, breads and commercial pasta
+ Deep fried foods, oils, including vegetable oils
+ Dairy including cheese, milk, yogurt, butter, margarine, and eggs
+ Meat including beef, pork, fish, poultry, and other animal based proteins
+ Food additives including colorings, flavorings, MSG, sweeteners, and
+ Commercial drinks, especially diet soda containing aspartame

You can eat a more balanced and diverse diet on a mostly vegetarian diet that includes the following:
+ Dark leafy greens (kale, collards, chard, brocolli)
+ Legumes (beans, lentils, peas)
+ Whole grains (brown rice, quinoa)
+ Colorful vegetables that are steamed and raw
+ Whole fruit (not commercial fruit juices with additives)
+ B12 and D vitamins
+ A source of Omega-3 fatty acids (ground flax seed, walnuts, other seeds and nuts in moderation)

You can eliminate most oils provided you get a source of Omega-3. Try to eat a variety of different foods rather than the same menu every day. This will add variety and interest to your diet.

Mandy asks…

What is the best diet plan for a 22 yr old woman?

Hello all. I currently weigh 176 lbs and would like to loose 30 lbs. I REALLY dislike salad but I love all kinds of cooked vegetables. What is the best diet plan for me?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Hi! Diet is not all about salads, I hate them too, believe me.

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.

Check my source, it might help. Good luck!

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Daniel asks…

Can someone make me a diet plan?

I really want to get in shape

and im doing XC for the first time this year (:
i already have a good workout plan, but im realizing im slacking on my diet!

Can someone PLEASE PLEASE help me out and make me a basic, daily plan for

or if its BETTER to skip the breakfast, lunch and dinner thing just eat something every couple of hours, could you please tell me a good way to approach this.

THANKS <33 10 pts, best answer

weight loss cardiff answers:

Diet plans are extremely complex generally, and nutritionists and personal trainers are paid a lot for this purpose, I couldn’t even begin to design one for you without knowing your exercise routines. General advice is never skip breakfast ever, it’s an incredibly important meal. If you eat 2000 calories a day, your body will adjust itself accordingly to be able to burn that much per day. Stay away from alcohol and fizzy drinks too, just horrible empty calories.

Paul asks…

Does anyone have a good diet plan?

I am looking for a diet not anything like diet pills, or any fad diet that will never work i want to lose over 70lbs if any one has any tips or diet plans that would be great

weight loss cardiff answers:

Here’s how to lose fat.

Whether you want to gain weight, lose weight, add muscle, or maintain, you should use the same diet. In other words, everyone should be eating essentially the same macro nutrients (carbs, fats, protein), micro nutrients (vitamins, minerals, fiber, etc.) barring special health or medical considerations because we all have essentially the same physiognomy and there is only one version of peak health. 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 listens 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. You can calculate your BMR here —>

•MAINTENANCE: If you want to maintain your weight just keep your portion size at a comfortable level which you can determine simply by weighing yourself once per week and checking your clothing fit and reflection in the mirror to ensure you’re at or close to your ideal body weight.

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 into making 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.

Another benefit of tracking is planning “cheats”. When you track, if you have to cheat you will know how much damage you did. If you cheat a little you may still lose some fat. Cheat a little more and you still may not gain any fat. Cheat a little more and you may have gained the equivalent of a few ounces of fat that day. The numbers will let you know. You can also “bank” calories simply by adding up all the calories you’ve saved over the past week and then indulging yourself by that much excess without interfering with your fat loss. Cool huh? Of course, cheats and banks should be no more than once per week.

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.

If you need more information, use the links below or email me at my YA account.

Good luck and good health!!

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

David asks…

How much exercise should I do everyday?

So, I have got about 40 pounds to lose. I am currently on South Beach, and planning to start Zumba at home as I have heard great things about it. I also have easy access to the gym. I am wondering how often, and how much I should be working out. I am able to exercise everyday of the week, although I do not know if that’s such a good thing. Also, for weightloss, what time of the day do you think exercise works best? Thanks.

weight loss cardiff answers:

It depends on your goals. Do you want to get more fit? Do you just want to maintain your current fitness level? How fit are you now?

If you are very inactive and unfit, start off slowly. Do 20-30 minutes, four days a week. Be careful not to strain, and always warm up first.

If you are currently somewhat active and looking to improve your fitness, go for at least 30 minutes, five or six days a week. Then you can gradually increase it if you wish to become very fit. A very fit person would be putting in at least six hours per week.

You should include all components of fitness- cardio, strength, and flexibility.
So, for example, you could walk, bike or run 3 days a week and do weight training and stretching the other three. Never train the same muscles with weights two days in a row.

Ruth asks…

When cycling for weight loss, is it better to bike for longest distance or longest pace/time?

Just wanting to see what is best for someone wanting to use cycling as a form of weight loss.

Goal wise I’m pretty sure both are what I need to be doing, but answers from seasoned pros are most welcome.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Cycling is a cardiovascular sport and you determine how much time and effort you put into it. You want to start out with an easy 10 min warm up ride. That will help prevent muscle pain and allow you to ride longer. After the warm up you want to pedal at a high cadence 70-90 rpm’s in a gear that is easy to spin. That will use you slow twitch muscles that use fat as a fuel and can go for a very long time. Pedaling slower then 70 rpm’s and mashing on the pedals will wear out your legs very quickly. You want a pace that you can do for a long time but hard enough to get your breathing elevated.

Start out with 20-30 min rides and work your way up to a hour or more. Once you can go for a hour start climbing hills to get stronger. You can also do intervals where you can go fast for 30-90 seconds and then slow down to recover. Once you catch your breath do it again. It will help you build more muscle so you can burn more calories even at rest.

You wont get anywhere without a good diet plan. You burn only 35 calories per mile so the more miles you can do in a hour the faster you will lose weight. At slow speeds cycling burns less calories then walking. A cheeseburger, large fries, and a large coke can take 40 miles to burn off.

You need a good plan and stick with it, it will take a few weeks before you see decent results.

Lisa asks…

How do I get enough motivation to stick to a diet and lose weight?

I know more about weight loss, healthy diet and everything that goes with it than most dieticians, but I just can’t seem to get the mindset that will allow me to start and then stick to an eating plan.

I have lost weight a number of times before – 35kg once, but my motivation just isn’t there now.

How do I get it back? And keep it!

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you set goals, I think it makes it a loooot easier.
Think about if you have any specific events coming
up, like a wedding, parties, event, etc. Then you can
set a goal of about 2 pounds each week. If you keep
telling yourself that you can do it, and start seeing
results, you will ultimately have the drive to continue
working your way to optimal health.

Take Care and Good Luck (: (:
