3. Add a tiny pinch of salt
4. Add 1 tablespoon full cottage cheese or yogurt.
5. Sprinkle some splenda (if u want) on top

voila…..btw…i like cottage cheese better

Steven asks…

Is corn a good dieting food because most of it can not be digested?

I think due to it’s cellulose most of corn, or at least the wrapping on each corn, can not be digested, and just simply passes through the body. Does this make it a good dieting food due to people being able to eat so much of it without digesting too much carbs?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Only the very thin outside layer of the kernel is cellulose. The rest is VERY highly concentrated calories, mostly carbohydrates. It is a TERRIBLE diet food. There is a reason we use corn to fatten up beef cattle.

One small cup of corn has 123 grams of carbs, 8 grams of fat and 606 calories! Thats’ ‘with nothing on it!

George asks…

How do I lose weight in 2 weeks?

I really want to lose all my stomach fat and get a really toned stomach, does anyone know how to do that in 2 weeks or less? Things like diet and exercise tips would really help!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Jogging is an excellent exercise because it let you lose weight
evenly throughout your whole body. If you want to lose weight in
specific areas, you should target them with exercises. If they are
your problem areas, they will be very difficult to tone. You will have
to work double on them. The best approach is this:
1. Lower/control your daily calorie intake (control for normal
weight, lower for overweight).
2. Run/jog to lower your overall body fat percentage.
3. Target your problem areas with exercises.
An excellent exercise, you can do it in front of your TV: sit on a
stool, and put your toes under something (piece of heavy furniture,
for example). In your hands hold a little dumbbell. Please, make sure
that it is not very heavy, start with one kilo, for example, or you
will damage your back and spine! Slowly move the upper part of your
body back, until it’s parallel with the ground. Stop for a second and
move it back to the sitting position. Repeat ten times. Every week add
to the number of repetitions. You will see the results in a week,
guaranteed! You will see or feel under the fat – if you have any – six
pack and muscles. Dumbbells do wonders. Much better than these
crunches – I came up to three hundreds and there was no results AT
ALL. With the dumbbells you will see it in a week.

Charles asks…

What is a safe amount of weight to lose in 2 weeks?

I’m going to see my boyfriend in 2 weeks, who i haven’t seen since September. and i have been working out for a while now but no weight is coming off anymore. How can I lose some weight in the next two weeks. and what is a safe amount to lose? Thanks for your help.

weight loss cardiff answers:

A safe amount is 1-2 lbs per week, so 2-4 lbs in 2 weeks.

Cut down on portion sizes, increase exercise like swimming and walking.

Dont crash diet to lose a load of weight. You wil only mess up your metabolism and get fatter a week later.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Donald asks…

I need some advice talking to girls, from the view of a stutterer.?

This feels really fuckin lame talking about this on yahoo answers, but I don’t know where else to go. Anyway, im a 21 year old college student, never had a girlfriend, still a virgin, only have made out with a handful of girls. I think im pretty good looking, Im on the lacrosse team, and I have a good amount of friends. I have a stutter that I have had for my whole life. Its not severe like you see in the fucking true life videos, but its always around and I feel like it hold me back, especially with women.

Let me give you some background of where im coming from. I have been overweight my whole life, until this past summer I took up p90x (which I highly recommend) and lost a tonf of weight and re-made my body physically. So basically, until this year, I have been virtually untouchable for most girls. Who wants to date an overweight, stuttering kid that chills in the corner of parties because he is too afraid to talk to strangers because of his stutter? Not many. So I have gotten a late start to say the least.

I went to an intensive 2 week stuttering therapy program over the summer. In the beginning, it really helped – but it is so difficult to maintain for a while. I use it now to get out of “blocks”. But that hesitation to talk to people has never gone away. I have spent my entire life conditioned to shy away from new social situations – its hard to just be this super outgoing person now.
Then there is actually talking to women. Most of you, without a speech impediment, have no idea what it is like to not be able to say things whenever you want. I’m the opposite – I have no idea what its like to be able to talk at will. I met this guy at speech therapy who got a stutter from a traumatic car accident – he was easily the most bitter and depressed person there. Unlike us, he knew what it was like to speak, and he had that beautiful gift stripped away from him.

Sorry for rambling. Back to talking to women with this shit – I feel like I am so focused on “not stuttering” at all costs rather than being a cool, sociable, attractive guy. I am so focused on not looking stupid that I usually end up acting a bit odd. No one ever really finds out I stutter – I have developed so many tricks and methods to avoid it, like switching words, that most people don’t notice. In fact, when my friends found out I was going away for therapy, then were confused as to why I was going in the first place.

If you actually read all of that, I appreciate it, because this is a pretty difficult subject to talk to parents and friends about. So why not go to complete stangers, huh? Again, I’m not a total loser or anything ; its just talking to women is my Achilles heel, because honestly, I’m proud of everything else ive accomplished in my life for the most part.

So I guess my question is, besides ranting and getting shit off my chest, would a girl appreciate it more if I stutter and be “normal”, without acting weird about it? You know what I mean? But at the same time, youre at bar, its hard to hear, and I have to talk loud and fluent and confidently – to a woman – literally impossible to not get stuck.

Thanks for your input.

weight loss cardiff answers:

I have never known a person who didn’t stutter occasionally. We all have dysfluencies from time to time, especially when approaching someone we are attracted to; even so-called “normal” speakers.
You mention that your friends were surprised you were going to a therapy program. It’s clear to me that THEY didn’t think you have a problem, so your perception of your stuttering seems to be out-of-proportion to what actually occurs.
As far as the patient with acquired stuttering goes, more was going on with him from a brain injury than simply stuttering. Much of his anger is very likely due to irritability, impulsivity, and agitation from the brain trauma.
I think you’re giving stuttering too much power over you psychologically. Unless you have secondary behaviors (eye-blinking, jerking, leg-slapping, etc.) and hard blocks, your stuttering probably doesn’t call attention to itself. Believe me, it’s a non-issue with any woman worth your attention. Women are attracted by confidence (not cockiness), thoughtfulness, and kindness more than any other personality characteristics. You very likely have much more to offer than you think.

Carol asks…

How can I get buff and strengthen my bench press?

Okay…this is like my first time asking a question on Yahoo 😛 I know this question gets asked a LOT on Yahoo Answers, but I wanted a more specific response.

Anyways, I’m Asian-American (more specifically, Chinese) and within the last several months I’ve been trying to work out and get a strong upper body (mainly arms, chest, back muscles) for a variety of reasons.

I’m 16 and like 2 months, 140 pounds (gained a little weight due to mainly muscle I think) and like… 5 “10 – “11. I’ve always been pretty tall/skinny for my age, definitely taller than most asians and thin. I guess I’m kinda athletic, not compared to the atheletes at my high school, I’ve done sports when I was a kid, and have done martial arts for a few years (just restarted a month ago) and overall I think I’m reasonably athletic for an Asian bwahaha..when I say this I mean a lot of Asians I know aren’t athletic mainly because they’re kinda lazy when it comes to sports and such, of course I know some athletic Asians too..ANYWAY –

So basically my genetics (in my opinion) let’s see… my dad is sort of athletic, when he was in high school (back in Hong Kong lol) he did track (long distance running) and played basketball, he used to be 5″9 but now he’s shrunk a little…he’s actually short for his family tree believe it or not.
My quite unathetlic – she’s 5 feet tall (her side of the family is short) and has flat feet and anemia, the first of which I inherited somewhat (I have pretty low arches in my feet) but thankfully I don’t have anemia….I think my blood cells are slightly smaller than average but nothing serious.

So like, when I first tried bench pressing at my friend’s house, I could only do about 75-80 pounds, this was like my first time benching anything, so yeah… I’ve been doing perfect pushups (those little handle things) for a few months now, they’re pretty good, but my arms have only been toned and sometimes when I work out hard my biceps/triceps get kinda big, but they lose some mass by the next day. So my dad recently got us membership at a good gym, it has treadmills and such (for him) and pretty much all the weights/machines I would need to get buff. So I tried the bench press, I tried 95, could do 10 reps on that but my form is kinda unbalanced. I could probably go up but I haven’t tried yet. My friend told me (he can bench like 180-200) that to increase your bench press/rip your muscles, you do a weight that you can do 5 reps on, then increase it so you can do 4, then 3, then 2, then 1. Is this a good method? Also for my diet – I eat some meat but probably not nearly enough protein that would help me get buff quickly.

So yeah, I’m pretty weak I guess, I just recently put on weight (due to puberty and such) because I used to be very thin, so maybe my muscles haven’t caught up with my height/weight yet…you know what I mean. Well, I just wanted some advice on how to increase my bench press steadily, so I have a direction to go for the next couple months when I go to the gym.

My friend who has the bench press at his house (he’s Filipino) at first we were about the same, he worked out more so he could do like 90 at first, got up to like 105 within a couple months (he wasn’t working out hard) but a couple days ago he told me he tried 118 and could do it quite easily (10 reps at least) and said he’s gonna try 125-130 soon. He’s a little taller and about the same weight as me I think. I’ve always been more all-around athetlic than him, but he’s getting buffer…hehe

So yeah…advice?
Thanks Knuckles :D, other than nutrition I’m really looking for a good work out plan, so a detailed work out plan would be much appreciated

weight loss cardiff answers:

Before weight lifting; 30-45 minutes before
5 grams nitric oxide booster (JackD 3D, SuperPump 250, Hemo-Rage, or (“arginine”-Wal-Mart)
3 grams glutamine (6 tablets)
Fat burner or energy supplement
Small protein shake 8-oz. Milk, 1 scoop powder, ¾ cup blueberries. Blend into a shake. Small bowl of oatmeal w/ blueberries.

After lifting:
3-4 grams nitric oxide
3 grams glutamine
20 Gummi-Bears before showering,
after shower….
12 oz. Orange Gatorade with 2 scoops vanilla or strawberry protein powder, add ice to make slush or shake

Use heavy weights and stay in a 5-8 rep range. Bench one day and do pull-ups or lat pull-downs the next, this keeps your chest muscles from pulling your shoulders in and giving you a sunken chest by building your back as well

Steven asks…

My brother is so mean to me?

He is 18 years old and I am 12. Whenever I beat him at video games, he loses his temper and tries to body slam me. I always do try and fight with him and easily hurt him but he bruises me. My testosterone level is 358. So I always try and fight him but he overpowers my weight and muscles. This Sumer I was just visiting him. How do I pummel him and even though he is stronger. He always gets his friends to take me down but yet his friends are scared of me. How do I beat the crap out of my brother. And he has Key Logger and can figure out my password to Yahoo and see this question I asked. I told my parents and they don’t trust me so this time should I punch his chest to make him lose his breath then take him down.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Youre brother is an immature jerk. Getting mad at video games? REALLY?! He sounds like a 10 year old. You really cant beat him up, as youre 13. I would avoid and ignore him.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Chris asks…

Is there anything actually wrong with me?

I would just like to add before I write/type any further. I know that there are people out there that will assume some questions posted by users on Yahoo answers are attention-seeking or looking for sympathy. I wanted to notify you that my question is genuine and I am NOT looking for any sympathy of any kind. I apologize if this post or question is too long.

Hi, I am 14 years old and well, the question above is pretty much self explanatory.

I guess I’ll start off then. Lately, I have been feeling quite down, but I didn’t know, and I still don’t know why. I assumed it was all this puberty thing and thought it was normal. But it’s been like this for a while. I thought if I wrote my feelings down, it would make me feel better but it doesn’t have seem to have done some good. I kind of gave up on that.

I suppose I will explain my situation at the moment. It’s been like this for years. My parents work late (they’re in the same business) so I hardly ever get to see them. This is pretty much my routine: Wake up, see my parents for about half hour, go to school, come home, see my parents for 15 minutes, they go to work, I’m home alone until around 11pm, my parents come home, and I sleep. My two sisters have basically flown the nest, one lives about 50 miles away and my other sister is at university. I’ve told my mother that I feel alone all the time and she’s suggested that I go around my cousin’s house and stay there until she comes home but the thing is, I always feel like I am bothering them and I don’t want to. So I declined. My mum told my sister about it and she rang home every day. For a week that is. So maybe I figure my loneliness is maybe part of the problem.

You might tell me ‘why not just go out when your parents are at work’? I am painfully shy and I don’t have really much of a social life. I have very few friends at school and I don’t really talk much. I try to be a little more confident but I get scared that I will make a fool out of myself so I don’t. To others, people look at me like I’m a happy person but the way I’m feeling deep down, I don’t think I am. I am aware that I do have some confidence issues but doesn’t everyone? To be honest, I feel and I look ugly and I keep thinking people look at me because of my ugliness. I decided to take action two years ago where I ate nothing for breakfast and skipped lunch and tried to eat food to the minimum for dinner. My parents weren’t around at dinner so I guess I could easily hide my eating habits. I constantly weighed myself every day but I would be disappointed as I didn’t lose weight. This kind of went on for like a year before my mum mentioned that if I weighed anything less than 7 stones she’d sent me to the hospital. It kind of scared me so I ate more. I didn’t know if she noticed I was doing this but I never asked in case she’d get an idea of what I was doing.

My auntie recently died a few months ago and even though we weren’t close we were still family. But since then I have been thinking about death more than usual and how I would die. Run over by a car, murdered, suicide.. etc. I’ve listed in ways how I could die but I know I would never go through suicide because I’m cowardly. And if I did do it, people would call me selfish and I don’t want that. But then I figured maybe it’s natural to think like this. Or maybe it’s not. I don’t know, I’m slightly confused.

I have wanted to tell someone about all this but I’m worried that they’ll say something like ‘it’s normal’ or ‘it’s fine’ to feel like this way because I will, like I said earlier, make a fool out of myself. I also wanted to talk to my school nurse but I never plucked up the courage to do so and I don’t think I ever will because her office is close to where a lot of people hang out so if they see me go in it will spark a lot of attention and I don’t want that. I like to keep things to myself. Anyway it kind of takes me a while to trust anyone let alone freely talk to someone about my concerns. I don’t want to waste any body’s time.

Right now I feel like that I’m sort of bothering you guys because maybe you have dealt with these things so many times and well, maybe my situation is normal. I think I just need some answers as to why I’m feeling like this. I’m sorry if again, I have wasted your time.

Thanks for reading this post and answers would be welcome. Thanks again.

weight loss cardiff answers:

>>> I always feel like I am bothering them and I don’t want to.
>>> I don’t want to waste any body’s time.

Let me ask you something, okay? If you overheard your cousin or your aunt saying “I don’t want to waste her time…” and she was speaking to someone about asking you to help her with a project.

Wouldn’t you be outraged that she was making such a decision for you? I mean…she’s already decided what you would think about her request.

Please let people decide for themselves. I am sure that you are important enough and, if you’re really not (and I am sure you are), then it’s bad enough and YOU don’t have to contribute to the situation by acting like you’re not important enough. YOU ARE. ACT LIKE IT.

I also suggest you find someone to help. Maybe you could volunteer somewhere closeby? There is nothing like helping others to get us out of our depression. And it works FOREVER if you let it.

David asks…

Fight tomorrow but i feel a little weak and I run out of breath so easily.. what should i do?

I had to cut weight for the fight but not too too much.. i cannot eat anything big or drink anything big b/c my weigh ins are tomorrow and i’m only a pound under.. when i do anything i lose breath even climbing stairs and running SHORT distances.. i desperataly need help.. if you know a lot about this kind of stuff i would really like to talk with you about it so feel free to email me at thank you

weight loss cardiff answers:

I’ve never had this problem when cutting weight, nor have any of my friends. However breathing can become limited with dehydration. If you are a pound under i would suggest getting some water down. Just make sure to keep on the scale and watch your weight. You can afford to be half a pound to a pound over tonight if you don’t drink any water tomorrow before the weigh in.

Richard asks…

How can i stop feeling angry after what i went through and how easily he forgot me?

Hi there! Well a couple of months ago i dated a guy. He was not what i usually date. I usually date guys way older than me and he was just 21 and also Spanish , He didn’t have a degree like the other guys, he worked in construction. The guy was a sweetheart he would just say what deep inside any girl wants to hear plus he was very handsome. The sex was magnificent, it wasn’t just sex it was making love , just amazing. Well he met my family and stuff but i only got to meet his cousins, he will always gimme some excuse of why i couldn’t meet his mother and sister. He also started going out around 7 o clock and not call me till 1 to let me know he was okay. During that period of time he wouldn’t call or text. We started to have problems because of the matter of his actions. Last time we spoke on the phone he told me that he was going to go out to dinner with his mom, i told him to have fun and make sure to call me when he gets home , well he straight forward rudely said “Don’t tell what i have to do”. After that i didn’t call/text him , neither him he never called or text. Three days later i received text messages from him saying whats up and why i wasn’t talking to him. It hurt me but i had to ended. He was one of the few guys i ever really liked but i cant play around the BS , i couldn’t pretend to be happy about something when i wasn’t. A couple of weeks ago i searched his name on FB and found his profile where i saw that a few days later after we broke up he started talking about a girl that was driving him crazy and how happy he was feeling about it. It broke my heart to see that. Since them I’ve lost an incredible amount of weight in just less than two weeks and i feel so angry inside but i also miss him, i feel like loosing weight and changing my hair color or something i could attract him again and sort of revenge him. How can i stop feeling angry? After all i went through with him and i almost threw my future in the garbage for him ???;_ylt=ArQsw3cAyVAVHnybGuq6F13ty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20100819200225AAnYTg9

weight loss cardiff answers:

Don’t bother with revenge, why put your energy into something so negative?

Get your hair done to make YOURSELF feel better, and call your girlfriends and get on your glamrags and war paint and get out there and have a great night, and forget about him.
