Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Linda asks…

How many weight watchers pro points can my husband have per day?

I have started going to weight watchers and know what my pro points daily allowance is and my husband would like to know his. He is following the same menu as me but would like to know how many points he can have.
He is 31 years old, six foot one and weights 19 stone. Thanks

weight loss cardiff answers:

I don’t know about weight watchers points.

I know that your husband is tall so he should need 2,443 calories just to cover his BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate, male, 31 years old, 6’1 and 266lbs) before needing calories for any calorie expenditure (physical activity).

Your husband should eat 2 or 3 times as much as you eat. If he’s “following the same menu” as you, he should get a second helping, or at least get an appetizer before a meal, a cheese and dessert after and some alcohol in between.

Once I had a 6 feet tall 22 years old student staying at my house, built like an American football player (at least 250lbs, I would guess) and needed to eat 8 times more than I did so I would cook all my recipes for 15 people, 15 servings…one for me, two for my husband and my kids who had to eat twice as much as me, and 8 for that guy.

Men should eat whatever they want and just pay attention that some of it is healthy food. It’s too easy to just eat high calorie junk food to reach your 2,500 BMR, even if you’re a couch potato.

When you’re a man, it’s very hard to eat healthy (some of them don’t even know how to cook!) so you don’t clog your arteries, as you need tons of calories.

Ultimately, when you get in shape, you can eat whatever you want as your body becomes a mean fat burning machine.

Losing weight is not about eating less but about gaining muscle mass that will rev up your metabolism. Men have male hormones and an amazing ability to build up muscle mass (like 5 pounds a month, using weight machines).

Muscle mass is the weight loss miracle. Not only does it make you look better, thinner and toner but also makes you stronger so your aerobics get easier and more efficient and you burn more calories while exercising. Also carrying grocery bags/going up the stairs or anything else is so much easier when you have some muscles in your arms/legs.

Once you get more muscle mass, your metabolism goes up on a 24/7 basis. Each pound of added muscle mass needs 35/50 calories a day to maintain (not even counting the calories for the exercise). Think about this for a minute…it’s 12 to 18 thousand calories a year…it’s 3 to 5 pounds of fat reserves a year that you would either lose or at least not gain (if you eat it). And that is just for one pound of extra added muscle mass.
Also on those days when you’re resting and feeling a little soreness because your muscles are repairing stronger, you can rest assure that you’re burning a lot of calories even if you’re not moving.

What are some easy and filling foods for someone on a Vegan Diet to eat?

I just joined my wife with her Vegan lifestyle, and have lost 17 lbs in less than a month, I would like to keep this weight loss up and stay on the diet/fast possibly turning my eating habits around for good. Anyone have any good advice, recipes, snacks, etc. for a curious Vegan

weight loss cardiff answers:

Think fiber and protein. Tofu is excellent and one of the most versatile foods I have ever discovered and a breakfast of scrambled tofu with bell peppers, jalapenos, onion, and a sprinkling of nutritional yeast will keep me going all day.

I’ll also make fried rice with tofu, turmeric, falafel seasoning, sage, or whatever I feel like throwing in the skillet with some rice (even cinnamon and sugar sometimes) because it makes a quick and filling meal at work.

Legumes are probably one of the best examples. Protein and fiber all in one. You can mix up some (drained) cans of kidney beans, black beans, and chickpeas (garbanzo beans) with some pasta and a vegan Italian dressing for a great meal, and even throw some veggies in it. Plus it’s versatile enough to be served as a warm meal (say, with some broccoli thrown in) or as a pasta salad (maybe with a little corn and, still, broccoli).

Nuts and fruit are great, also, as well as oatmeal. I like the organic Irish style oatmeal because it’s thicker. You can eat it plain or with berries or, better yet, some peanut butter and honey.

Acorn squash is also very filling, and there’s some excellent recipes out there for it at and other places as well.

So, basically, get protein and fiber in one sitting and you’ll be full and energized.

Jenny asks…

Does anyone know any healthy easy to make recipes?

Im just trying to lose weight for a cruise in november. I know thats a long ways away but its probably going to take that long. Any ideas?
I dont really like fish

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you want to loose weight, just eat healthy…One rule of thumb for quick and healthy weight loss is eat or drink nothing white… If you can stick to that for a couple weeks, you will be in perfect shape for that cruise…..For example bread, dont eat white bread, eat whole grains…remember moderation as well, you can eat anything just dont eat tons of it….Butter is made from milk….so you cant eat….just try it…and have a great time on your cruise..

Thomas asks…

fast and easy weight loss plan?

I’m 14 years old, 5’4 and weigh 143 lbs. I’m a cheerleader so I’m active about 3-4 times a week. i need a fast and diet plan before school starts which is in 3 weeks. please tell me how fast it will work. oh and how many calories should i have each day to accomplish the diet for a girl my age. please help me

weight loss cardiff answers:

Eat smaller portions. This way, your body starts to increase its metabolism so that calories are burned faster. Also, small meals can prevent overeating.
Stop eating just when you feel you are not as hungry, don’t keep on eating till you feel full

Plenty of Cucumbers: it takes more calories to digest cucumbers than the calories you can obtain from it, it also give you clean, easy way of filling full.
Grapefruit juice: when eaten with protein, triggers fat burning and causes weight loss.


Believe in a target weight you want to achieve and weigh yourself twice a day, be encouraged from the progress.

Set a daily goal for 1 Pound or 2 you want to loose. When you do not achieve your daily goal, just eat way less at that day just to keep the same paste of weight loosing.


Start the diet at the supermarket. Keep stocked with healthy food and you’ll be less likely to run out for high calorie junk food.
