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.

Good luck and good health!!

Lisa asks…

What are some really good diet and exercise plans?

I’m very much in need to lose weight. I’m 19 years old, 5 foot 9 inches tall, size 12. I do not know my weight at the moment for the lack of having a scale at home but I know I’m around 140LBS or a little over that. I got weighed at the doctors a month ago and it was 142LBS so I’m going with that.

I have quite a chubby stomach and could lose weight in my thighs as well. It’s where most of my fat is. What are some good diet plans I should look into and what are some good exercises I could do to tone out my body more? Any advice would be great.

weight loss cardiff answers:

The healthiest diet in the world also tends to drive your weight below what’s considered normal or average. The life expectancy and vigorous health of older people in these populations surprises even the most educated and experienced medical professionals. Demographic studies by many scientists over several decades have repeatedly shown that a “whole plant based diet” promotes health and longevity. A lifelong vegetarian eating a balanced diet and getting a moderate level of activity can expect to live a healthy and vigorous life that is at least 7 years longer than most Americans.

The rates of obesity, cancer, diabetes, vascular disease in these populations are many times less than in populations eating like the Standard American Diet (SAD). SAD most often includes excess animal based foods, refined oils, refined carbohydrates, caffeine, and food additives.

In contrast, the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine has defined the Four New Food Groups:

+ Vegetables – Especially dark leafy greens (kale, collard, chard) and colorful vegetables.

+ Legumes such as peas, beans, and lentils.

+ Whole grains such as brown rice and quinoa.

+ Whole fruit and not processed fruit drinks and other commercial drinks.

If you eat animal based food products such as meat (pork, beef, fish, and poultry) and dairy (milk, eggs, cheese, yogurt, cream, mayonnaise, and so on), you should eat these foods in great moderation and infrequently. If you completely give up animal based foods products, make sure you have adequate B vitamins, D vitamins, and Omega-3 fats.

I lost 90 pounds without feeling hungry or deprived. Check out the books that I list from your local library for further information.

In terms of exercise, you will want to perform aerobic exercise for 30-60 minutes most days. This is any exercise that moves major muscle groups repetitively and continuously causing you to be slightly out of breath. I like swimming and bicycling. Some people prefer dance, running, or even jumping rope. Since the workout of your heart and lungs is the same for any given heart rate, just pick activities that you enjoy and that you can easily fit into your daily routine. For example, I often stopped at the gym before work for a 50 minute swim. It became part of my routine and part of my commute.

A program of free weight training is also very helpful. One good book on the specific exercises is:

Body for Life: 12 Weeks to Mental and Physical Strength by Bill Phillips and Michael D’Orso (Jun 10, 1999)

The exercise program is well explained and there is a lot of motivational text. However, the advice on diet is typical of what you would hear from trainers in your local gym. It’s not based upon the best scientific research. Skip the sections on diet and especially the protein drink recommendations. High protein diets are hard on the liver and kidneys and can have long-term health consequences.

By the way, I lost 90 pounds of fat on a pure vegetarian diet, and my health and feeling of well being have never been better. I’m attempting to avoid the vascular disease that is common on both sides of my family.

Carol asks…

Exercises that can easily be done in a dorm room?

I’ve gained like 50lbs my freshman year of college. I have started dieting, but was wondering if anyone knew any good exercises that could be done in a small dorm room. Most of my free time is during the middle of the night, and I can’t run very well due to a knee injury, but I really, really want to lose weight. It would be especially helpful if they were exercises that could be done while studying or watching tv on my laptop.

weight loss cardiff answers:

At my daughter’s college they can go to the pool and gym for free.

Also she has her wii there and does wii fit.

You can also do exercise DVDs.

My daughter also took a karate class as part of her classes.

James asks…

Whats the best way to start a blog?

I want to document my dieting strategies for friends and family who are going through a similar situation as I am: losing weight. What are the best free websites for blogging? I want to make this easily accessible for the older people in my family who are a bit technology challenged.

weight loss cardiff answers:

WordPress & Blogger are both free and the most popular blog software –

Blogger is owned by Google.
Good luck on your diet & your blogging!!!!!!!! :):):)

Hi again, IMO I think would be the best fit for you, since you are just starting out. It is very simple to set up – and there is great video tutorial on the site. It’s 100% Free – free to set up, free hosting, free templates, free everything. (Some other blogs you need a hosting company and a domain name – monthly and annual fees for these).
Once you are set up and have your Display Name – you can just e-mail the link to all your family and friends (+ post on Facebook) and they will be able to easily access it.

Good luck and happy blogging!!!!!!!!! 🙂

John asks…

What are some diet plans for morbidly obese people?

I have an emotional attachment to food. When I’m stressed, sad, scared, lonely, or whatever I will start eating a lot of junk food. I have piled on the weight over the years and I’m over 300 pounds now. I don’t know where to go or what to do. Are there guidelines or diet plans for morbidly obese people?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Its very hard to control food intake when having an emotional attachment to food; I know what you feel. But it’s good already that you realize that this is your problem. Perhaps more exercise will help controlling your weight; but in any case I think no exercise or diet will succeed unless you address the root cause; your emotional attachment to food. I have the same problem, and found that especially at home Im very prone to compulsive, emotional over-eating.

I found it helpful to be with people which distracts and suppresses the need to eat. Also any activities that require you to be out of your normal surrounding is great to help distract me from food. It does not resolve the problem, but to an extend I have managed to keep at least my weight reasonable stable. A support group like suggested before may help.

Chris asks…

What kind of diet plan should someone with hypoglycemia have?

I just found out I had it and I’m trying to gather as much info as I can. I’m trying to make out a few weeks worth of diet plans, what can and can’t I eat?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I would suggest that you read the Atkins New Diet Revolution.

Hypo and Hyper glycemia are linked to insulin production. Many times hypoglycemia is misdiagnosed. If you are overweight and suffer hypoglycemia … It is unlikely that the diagnosis is correct. What you have is an overactive pancreas – producing insulin at an out of control rate … This is the beginnings of diabetes … Yes, I know that diabetes is HYPER glycemia … But what happens is that after years of overproduction of insulin, your pancreas “burns out”

Read the book … It explains all of his trials and findings.

Linda asks…

Any good diet plans to get rid of fat in my stomach?

Hi I’m 13 and a female and was wondering if you had any good diet plans to help me lose weight in my stomach? I would like to lose about.5-10 pounds. Please help me.

weight loss cardiff answers:

There is no magic answer to weight loss, but there are simple things you can do. Eat a healthy diet of about 1500 calories a day – you do need to learn to count calories and there are tons of sites that will help you with that, as well as the labels on foods. Eliminate ALL junk food, sodas, pop, sweets, fried foods, fast foods, fruit juices, and processed foods. Eat fruit, veggies, a few nuts, lean meat and fish, whole grain breads and cereals, low fat dairy products. Go for a brisk 45 minute walk twice a day, everyday. Climb lots of stairs. Drink plenty of water.

Mark asks…

What are some good diet plans for teenagers ?

I’m 16 and want to lose a bit of weight. I want a diet plan i can follow and a routine. Any suggestions ?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Calm down 🙂 determination and confidence are two AMAZING ways to be happy and improve your look. First, I must stress NOT to go on a commercial diet. They damage your body more than you can imagine. Eat very healthy. Fruits, vegetables, meat (grilled and baked, not fried), and dairy. Do not worry about a snack or two. Don’t eat 3 heavy meals a day, that is very important! Graze on healthy foods a bit all throughout the day. And for exercise, don’t do work outs for bulking up. Try yoga, running, swimming, and other cardio exercises. Some sit ups and crunches, and some push ups, but go slowly with both. Running, jump-rope, swimming, hula hoops, and things that get your heart racing are great for toning your body. Drink water as much as you need while exercising and a lot afterward. Water is a natural cleanser and will completely restore your body if you drink the right amounts. Also, something that has gotten me in shape quickly and effectively (and is very fun) is erotic dancing. Take a class. Rent a video. Look some moves up online. And just put on some music and dance. It makes you loose and rhythmic and gets you in touch with your sexy, feminine side. Very fun. Don’t panic, and be sure to relax as well as work hard! Good luck! You can always email me if you need further assistance 🙂
