Successful weight loss does take some discipline and it does take getting used to living in a new way and with a new relationship to your food and to your body. But the results are worth it.
In the past seven months, I have lost over 72 pounds by doing just a few things:
1. Keep a daily journal of every single thing you eat. Get a calorie book so you will know how many calories each thing has. Studies show that just doing this causes many people to automatically reduce their food intake.
2. Reduce calories to 1600 calories a day. It might seem a bit low as if hunger is inevitable, but see the next tip to resolve the hunger problem. By the way, the average person in the Western world eats two to three times as many calories each day…and that’s why the most common causes of death in these countries are related to high calorie, high fat lifestyles.
3. Hunger isn’t a problem for me on 1600 calories a day because I eat fresh, organic fruits and vegetables whenever I feel a bit peckish. If you get your daily recommended minimum servings of veges and fruit i.e. 5 servings, you’ll find that you just aren’t particularly hungry for most of your day. If you go beyond the minimum, you will find it nearly impossible to find room for junk food.
4. Limit fat intake to 40 grams of fat a day. This is quite easy to do just by eliminating processed foods and relying primarily upon fresh, natural foods. In other words, try really hard to eliminate anything that comes in a box and has a long list of complex ingredients that you don’t even begin to know what they are.
5. Eat only fresh, organic, lean forms of protein. Keeping the meat lean lowers the fat content and thus makes it easier to stay at or under your daily 40 gram fat limit. While organic products are quite controversial in the U.S., the simple fact is that organic meat is a. Pesticide free whereas regular meat is loaded with it, b. Is free from even the risk of “mad-cow” disease as it has not been fed contaminated feed, and it has been demonstrated to have much higher nutritional value.
6. Exercise one hour a day. Every single day. After all, one hour a day isn’t a lot of time compared to all the benefits of saving your health and your life.
7. Finally, don’t forget to consult a doctor before you begin a diet and exercise program.
Good luck! You can do this. I know you can because I’m already 70% of the way to my goal.
How hard or easy is it to maintain weight loss?
I’m slowly but steadily losing weight on my diet and exercise plain. I went from over 250 to 240 in about a month and a half. I think I would have lost more but I had a couple of weekend binges.
When I eventually reach my goal, how can I keep the weight off? I can’t only take in 1200 calories for the rest of my life and eat mostly Lean Cuisines like I’m doing now. I’d like to be more normal like my friends. It would be nice to go out and have a few beers and nachos with friends without worrying about getting fat again.

I currently maintaining a weightloss of about 30 pounds, which i achieved the middle of last year.
I’m finding that maintenance, just like the weightloss process, has it’s challenges.
To maintain my slimmer body, I have to be aware of what I eat, the portions of the food I eat & whether my eating plan is nutritionally balanced.
There’s no going back to my old unhealthy eating habits. That doesn’t mean I have to feel deprived from the occasional indulgence like cookies and chocolate, just as long as I’m sensible about the portion sizes & make sure the rest of my eating plan is healthy and balanced.
If you seriously want to maintain your weightloss consider giving up eating lean cuisine.
Cook your own meals instead & learn how to create your own meal plan and food combinations. You can’t expect to live the rest of life eating pre-packaged meals, so learn healthy eating habits now which you can realistically continue doing for the rest of your life.
A basic lunch/dinner meal, should ideally contain 1/4 starchy vegetables (like potato) or wholegrains, 1/4 lean protein (beans, meat, fish etc) & 1/2 non-starchy vegetables. That’s the plan I’ve been basing my meals on, during and after my weight-loss.
And I spent alot of time trying out different types of healthy foods, have learnt to like eating oatmeal in the mornings, try to make sure I’m getting adequate fibre and protein, have reduced my need for diet coke, have got use to eating salad & have created many other new healthy eatings habits.
It hasn’t always been easy, and it takes a daily commitment to make healthy eating and exercise choices, but my improved new healthy habits help to keep me slim and heathy :.)
If you haven’t already, use a website like calorieking, sparkspeople, dailyplate etc, to find out the estimated amount of calories required for your body, in both weight-loss and maintance mode.
1200 calories is only a guideline, everybody is unique with different heights, ages, exercise routines etc, so require different amount of calories. Depending on your current stats, you might possibly be under-eating for healthy weight loss.
Once you reach maintenance, gradually increase your calories, by eating bigger portions sizes, including a few more healthy snacks & perhaps allowing more indulgences (in controlled portion sizes).
It takes awhile to establish a healthy lifestyle routine you can maintain in the long-term. You might even lose a few pounds and regain a few pounds back again, until you work out what routine works best for you.
And instead of just relying on a scale, once you reach a healthy size you want to maintain, treat yourself to a new pair of jeans. Use these jeans like a pair of scales. If they are starting to feel a bit snug, look over your eating and exercising routine, and make adjustments if necessary.
Weight loss is not so easy!?
eat less exercise more :-[ Ive done everything and the weight BARELY budges. I’ve only lost 3 pounds in a month of moderately intense exercise and diet. I ran more then 3 miles/6 days a week and ate 900-1500 calories a day. Since that didn’t work I added more calories. Still, nothing. Then I cut back on exercise (that’s what Im doing now).
Please tell me why it’s not working. From now on I will only walk one mile a day and eat 1000 calories (of healthy foods). Hmph only 7 pounds away from where I need to be =/

I don’t know your age or how overweight you are, but your problem may have something to do with the source of calories you are taking in. Cooked and processed foods have no living enymes in them so your body has to give up enzymes that are intended to operate the various functions of the organs. Read the following. It may help.
Here’s a serious answer. I hope it helps.
*If want to get fit and/or lose weight, here’s my Weight Loss Program through Body Building and Nutrition. It works! First, don’t Use Diet Pills. They are bad for you. Most of them are just a scam or they are addictive. Counting calories is a pain in the neck. It will drive you nuts. But, losing weight is simple. You just have to do the right things.
*(If you are older and have not exercised in many years you should see your doctor and have a stress test done to be sure your heart is ok before starting this program. Also, walking eveyday is a good lifelong practice.)
*Fad diets sometimes work but, you can be sure that at least 25% of the weight you lose will be muscle. Then when you stop the diet you will gain back all of the weight you lost but no muscle. So, you will have 25% more fat than you did before! Fad diets just aren’t worth the bother.
*Fasting or skipping meals will teach your body that famine is common in your world and your body will begin to store more fat to get you through the next period when food is not available. It’s better to eat healthy foods often to teach your body that food is plentiful and that there is no need to store calories as fat. Eat a vegetablw or frui every two hours.
*Here’s a simple trick that can help you lose weight without doing anything else. Drink a litre of water as soon as you wake up in the morning and then drink two more throughout the day. You’ll notice a difference the first month.
*Here’s another trick that works. For every pound of muscle that you add, your body will burn 3000 calories (1lb) of fat every day. That means that just by having an extra pound of muscle on your body you will burn a pound of fat every day! So, add muscle!
*This is the fastest way to add a pound of muscle.
Squats and Pushups! You do them on alternate days;
squats one day, pushups the next. And you do them SuperSlow style. That is, you do the easy part twice as slow as the hard part. That way you fatigue the muscles quickly. Then you rest the muscles for 48 hours which gives the body a chance to make new muscles.
*Squats should be done with a wide stance and all the way to the floor. Pushups the with palms shoulder width apart and all the way to the floor, then all the way up. Use the full range of motion of the muscle group you are trying to develop. If you are too weak to do pushups, try them with your knees on the floor or do them with your feet on the floor and your hands an the bed.
*The idea is to tire the muscles out completely so do a set of squats until you can’t do another, then rest for a couple of minutes and do it again. Do that 3 times and you’re done for the day. The following day, don’t do squats but do pushups. Do them the same way, going down twice as slow as you come up.
*You will lose weight fast, unless you add more junk food and fat to your diet. Instead, eat at least 5 to 7 different raw vegetables and fruits every day. Cut out anything that comes in a bag, box, can, bottle or any kind of package. In other words, cut out all processed foods, soft drinks and sweets. Eat more grains and less red meat. Check out the Food Pyramid.
*If you really want to give your body the best possible chance to be healthy and fat free, go to infinity2.com (Link at bottom of page) and order their weight loss formula and Essentials for Life. That will give you all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and probiotics that your body needs and will keep you feeling better and healthier. They also have a Proteabolic Mass Formula for serious athletes who want to build muscle mass quickly and safely.
*Weight loss without exercise is not good. You need to eat healthy, exercise and get your rest. You will feel better, look better and be healthier. Try it for a week. You will notice a difference. You will feel better and that will motivate you to continue.
*Losing weight only in specific areas of the body is impossible. You can’t just lose weight around the belly, for instance. So, if you want tight, rippled abs, do crunches and leg raises every other day the way I described above.
*One last point, stretching is essential for a number of reasons. Pick up a copy of ”Stretching” by Bob Anderson. Read the intro and understand his reasoning before you do the exercisis. Good luck!
*This information is based on my personal and professional experience.
