weight loss cardiff answers:

Yes you can, I am over 50 and discovered the secret in burning fat and permanently losing all my unwanted fat!

Here are some of my secrets that really work!

1) Stay away from “Junk” Foods: Sugar and processed foods are horrible if you are trying to burn fat off your body. White Flour, Wheat, and Dairy, may not consider junk, but you will also struggle losing weight eating these types of foods. Just by eliminating these foods alone (until you get rid of all your unwanted fat), you will automatically see a drastic drop in weight and will instantly feel more energetic throughout the day. (I know, those ingredients are in every food we like eating, but just try eliminating them for a couple weeks and you will be shocked on how much weight you will lose. )
The best diet is going to be one that you can stick to (for more than just a week), one that includes delicious food and one you are happy with, not to mention one that you can maintain for a lifetime. Find the healthy foods you enjoy and get creative with those.  I have found an incredible amount of delicious food options at

The best fat burning diet is simple, and focuses on whole, natural foods such as fruits and vegetables, raw nuts, slightly more protein than usual, and sources of healthy fats.
One of the most important things you need to do is simply eat fewer calories than you need and you should always focus on improving the quality of your diet, so eat more fruits and vegetables and raw nuts.

2) Increase Your Metabolism with the right kind of exercise: The fastest and most efficient way to rev up your metabolism, burn fat faster, and develop lifelong health and fitness is to add lean muscle to your body through resistance training. (i.e. Weight lifting) When you add lean muscle to your body you’ll be literally turning your body into a fat burning machine!
Incorporate both a good strength training routine and interval cardio routine to your workout regimen. Don’t just do one all the time. Your body needs muscle to keep your metabolism high, and it also needs cardio to keep your heart strong, so find a good balance between the two. Incorporate a strength training and cardio routine that focuses on whole body movements. Keep your body moving through the whole resistant and interval training workout and you’ll accelerate the fat burning process more quickly.

3) Only drink water, NOTHING else!  Eliminating all sugar drinks, “diet” drinks and sodas will automatically cause a dramatic weight loss.
Water assists the liver in converting stored fat into usable energy, which is vital to permanent weight loss. But when the body is dehydrated, fat cells get “rubbery” and cannot be easily metabolized. This means that it’s harder to lose when you don’t drink your water.
Increasing water intake naturally speeds up metabolism and allows the body to better assimilate nutrients from the foods and nutritional supplements we consume.
Water is also natural appetite suppressant, so if you get hungry, did some water.

Drink a minimum of 1/2 of your bodyweight in ounces of water each day (ex. If you weigh 200 lbs, you need to drink 100 ounces) to really see the fat fall off.

4) Do not go hungry nor Starve yourself
Another very common mistake I see is people starving themselves in an effort to lose weight quickly.  The truth is you do not need to feel hunger in order to effectively lose weight.  Actually, the contrary is true.  You must Eat consistently throughout the day and give your body enough nourishment (good nourishment, that is) in order to see weight loss results.  Make sure to feed your body consistently throughout the day.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all important but so are snacks in between.  Munching on things like raw nuts, fresh fruits and healthy trail mixes can really keep you from experiencing any hunger throughout the day and help control any cravings that may come up.

5) Add lemon to your water. Lemon is a wonderful detoxifier to the liver. And since the liver is your “fat burning” organ, we want it always working at optimum. Keep your liver squeeky clean, by not only eliminating processed foods and toxic substances from your eating plan but also by giving it a good cleaning with some fresh lemon. You can also add some cayenne pepper to your drink as well and that will help to get your bowels moving (if the food is not finding its way out, weight loss will be much slower).

6) Eat your fruit servings before 4pm. Again, another wonderful food group that I am in no way saying is “bad” but you may see increased fat loss results by eating your fruit with breakfast, mid morning snack and lunch and then sticking to veggies for your mid afternoon snack and dinner. Raw carrots and peppers are great with almond butter in the afternoon and a piece of steak or salmon over sautéed greens and a side salad is a great dinner. You will then sti

How many calories should a 5’9, 23 year old man consume? Concerned about boyfriend?

How many calories should a 5’9, 23 year old man consume? My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost five months wants to lose weight. He eats one meal a day or sometimes nothing at all. I’m concerned about him. I used to have an eating disorder, too, when I was 14.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Well, it depends upon his activity level and overall fitness level, but I can assure you that eating one or zero meals per day will not help him lose weight, and may make him pretty sick. In fact, the body needs fuel to burn calories and that fuel comes in the form of, you guessed it, CALORIES! So, he is defintely eating too little to efficiently burn calories and lose weight. Think about it: You wouldn’t let your car go without gas, would you? It would break down if its tank was empty. Well, the same goes for the human body because IT will break down as well if it is not properly feuled, yet people seem to care more about their cars getting properly nurished than their own bodies.
A body that is malnurished or has entered starvation will lose weight because it is effectively wasting away and feeding off of itself. However, in order to lose weight in a healthy way, you need to actually eat MORE, but in a nutritious way.
Your boyfriend needs to see what his over fitness goals are and then eat accordingly. I can sit here and say what a healthy diet is, but that is subject to his fitness desires. You can easily find out what TYPES of food he should be eating based on what he hopes to achieve.
That said, a 23 year old man can easily comsume upwards of 2,500 calories per day. The 2,000 calorie diet is an approximate guideline for most adults, but a 23-year old still has a pretty fast metabolism and if he is somewhat active (gym, sports, etc), then he actually needs more calories. Just make sure the calories don’t come from cheeseburgers (at least not too often), but from healthier, less fattening foods, and he should lose some weight.

Linda asks…

What are good excersizes to burn a lot of calories and fat?

I have been doing the treadmill each night on 5 miles per hour for 40-60 minutes. I don’t know if it is working effectively to get the fat off my stomach and thighs. Are their easy ways to get rid of belly, leg, and arm flab. I’m not fat but it’s still a bit jiggly. I need to know ways to lose and burn calories effectively and easily! HELP!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Jogging an hour a day is a good thing and burns a substantial number of calories, but its not going to remake your body overnight, and its not enough all by itself to make much difference in your weight. You still need to watch the food intake.

If you want to lose weight via exercise without counting calories, you’ll need to double or triple your training volume (time spent exercising)

P.S. There is no way to target fat on specific parts of your body. Fat is stored fuel and gets used up more or less evenly from all over.

Helen asks…

What are good mediterranean diet foods?

What are good mediterranean diet foods?

weight loss cardiff answers:

It depends on what you mean by diet. By definition, a “diet” is anything that an animal eats. If you mean low fat (as most Americans con-notate it) you can probably tell by cooking it. Find any Mediterranean recipe and read through the ingredients and cooking instructions. If it calls for anything fatty (meats, lard, eggs, butter/margarine/shortening, or excessive sugar and oils), then you should try to make as many adjustments as you can. Most people don’t realize just how bad meat is for them and they go their whole lives insisting that they “need the protein”. Truth is, ALL living things contain protein, but only animals contain cholesterol. Eating a *balanced* vegetarian diet will supply all the nutrients you need without all the disgusting fat and cholesterol. Many vegetarians and vegans eat a lot of Mediterranean foods because there are plenty of interesting meat-less options. For the record, vegan/vegetarian is a type of diet. Fat-free, sugar-free, low-fat, etc. Are *weight-loss programs*. One is the way you eat, the other is what you’re depriving yourself of to loose fat.

John asks…

What is the diet that has worked for you to lose weight and what did you do?

I want to be about 120 lbs so I need to lose about 30 lbs. I am 5 ft 4 in tall.
I do not have a lot of money to spend on special diet foods and pills. And I do not have a lot of time to spend killing myself exercising all the time (I have a 2 year old). When it is warm outside I do take walks a lot, pushing my daughter in the stroller but it is hard to do when it is 10-20 degrees outside.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Weight watchers..not expensive, and the group support really helps. But you need to find a group in your area.

Ruth asks…

How long do diet shakes take with replacing 1 meal a day to start losing and noticing changes?

If i was to replace 1 meal a day, say lunch, for a shake, how long would it take for me to lose weight? And also i want to go on a diet, im really good with exercise, i exercise everyday but im a very fussy eater therefor i don’t like much. How am i supposed to eat healthy then if i don’t like the diet foods advertisers tell you to eat?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Some diet shakes are real garbage drinks. They often contain cheap ingredients such as casein (milk protein) or aspartame (a neurotoxin). Counting and reducing calorie intake has been proven to be ineffective over a two year period of time in one scientific study after another. The most popular diets fail time after a period of two years without fail. Most participants end up putting on more weight than they lose.

The only effective way to lose weight in the long run is to change your lifestyle. If you can maintain a low-fat vegan diet you have a chance at permanent weight loss. It also helps to maintain an aerobic exercise program and a free weight exercise training program.

You see, it takes 7 times as many calories to add a pound of muscle than it does a pound of fat. Would you rather gain 7 pounds of fat or 1 pound of sculpting muscle? The muscles cells also burn calories, even when you are resting.

Laura asks…

Can anyone give me some good weight loss advice?

I am a very busy 21-year-old woman. I work full time and go to school full time nights. I don’t have much time and am always eating on the run. (Which means it’s hard for me to lose weight.) I have gotten into the routine of walking half an hour in the morning every day which is good, but I’ve kind of hit a plateau and am stuck because I can’t find anytime to cook so I can eat right. Do you have any good advice or quick cook recipes (no fish) to solve this problem? Anyone else my age having trouble with their weight loss?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I’m 29, and have always had a hard time. I have found that the easiest and most effective thing is to eat small amounts, several times a day. I don’t even eat healthy all the time…I keep things like nuts, string cheese, summer sausage, etc…around, and just make myself eat something every couple of hours. I avoid fast food as much as possible, and when I do eat it, I order a kid’s meal to help with portion control. When I sit down to a regular meal, I always take 1/2 of what I think I want, wait about 20 min., and then judge if I NEED more or not. The other big key is water…AT LEAST 8 servings a day, and more is better. NO regular pop. The fact that you are already in the habit of walking is great as well. Keep doing that, but maybe use a timer and try to go a little farther each day within your 30 min. That will increase your pace without taking more time. I hope this helps. I know how frustrating it is to try and do work and school at the same time, and still struggle to find time for housework and taking care of yourself…which always seems to end up the lowest priority. 🙂

What are those easy cook food for teenage girl that is suffered from obesity?

weight loss cardiff answers:

At my heaviest I weighed 355 lbs. I had been successful on many diets, but I could never keep the weight off. It wasn’t until I read a little ebook that i ordered online called, “Lifestyle Changes That Cause Weight Loss” , that I understood that permanent weight loss will never come unless i lose the weight in a way that I can continue to live once it is gone.

I learned how to eat properly (Yes there is a correct way to eat). I learned that i didnt have to go to the gym eveyday, that I could incorporate exercise into my daily life. This was great because I hated working out at a gym.

Over a two year period of time, I lost about 7 lbs. Per month eating in a manner that didnt leave me hungry all the time. And over that two year period I lost over 160 lbs and I have kept it off.

I strongly recommend you order the ebook. It is simple but the knowledge is very powerful. It only cost me $5. I have tried dozens of diets over the years, but this ebook is the only source of information that was able to show me how to lose and MAINTAIN my weight. I am thankful I came across it.

You can order the ebook at:

PS There are some lists of food that are good to eat in this ebook, as well as a few recipe’s

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Helen asks…

How do I tell a new friend that I’m having weight loss surgery?

I am having weight loss surgery next month and I recently started seeing someone. I’m not really sure how to tell him or whether I really need to tell him. I’m not really sure where our relationship is going and it’s not like I will be able to “hide” it. Just wondering if I should say anything and if so how do I bring it up in a conversation.

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you think that this relationship will last, the conversation will inevitably come up… Either during your surgery and recovery or when the weight starts coming off. Since your diet will change significantly (what you eat, how you eat and how much you eat at each meal), you will not be able to avoid questions from a significant other.

A good way to begin the conversation may be something like, “I have made a decision that is going to greatly affect my life and I want to share it with you.”

You can then proceed to discuss:
* Why you decided to have the surgery (health and emotional reasons, but focusing on the health reasons often makes it “hit home” with someone who’s unfamiliar with the benefits of surgery)
* What it will mean to your day to day life (i.e. Diet changes… Despite what many think, bariatric surgery is not the “easy way out”)
* The support that you will need from those around you, especially as it relates to diet and exercise. The last thing you want is for your partner to tempt you with things that may be harmful such as sweets or unhealthy food. If they understand the implications, they’ll be more likely to be a positive influence rather than pulling you in the other direction.

After having the conversation, refer him to a resource where he can learn more about weight loss surgery, including the research that supports it, the health conditions it improves and what life is like for patients afterward. These 2 pages are good places for him to start:
* (Bariatric treatment overview)
* (Life after weight loss surgery)

If he’s a “keeper”, he’ll understand and support you!

Is there a weight loss supplement that does not make you heart race?

I have tried many weight loss supplements, but everytime I seem to try one it makes me all wired and my heart races.

Is there anything out there that does not do that?

weight loss cardiff answers:


To achieve a gradual, steady but an easy weight loss without any side effects is certainly very difficult.

Hence a safer and a more secure method of modification in food consumption and lifestyle pattern are highly recommended to reach the goal of an easy weight loss program.

Therefore, right kind of food in right proportions is encouraged in a weight loss program.

Confusion about weight loss? How is it possible to have permanent weight loss if dieting slows down metabolism

well, i know that eating less will have the body adjust to the new calorie intake and thus, no further weight loss. So how is it possible to have permanent weight loss if eating less doesn’t work?

Please give tips and suggestions, people who have sucessfully lost weight. thanks soo much!

weight loss cardiff answers:

The trick of losing weight is to fool your metabolism into thinking it is getting fed normally.If you try to lose weight by starving yourself,then your metabolism kicks in to low gear and hangs on to every scrap you feed yourself,making weight-loss impossible.Plus,after you have managed to starve yourself and not die,the minute you start eating again,your body sucks up every calorie it gets,and you pack the weight back on.
If you want to lose weight,which is a very difficult thing to do,you have to eat proper food:grains;veggies;low-fat meat./fish;drink plenty of water;and do some exercise.It sounds very simple,but it is very hard to do when you are de-toxing your body from fats and sugars.
Ask your doctor for an appropriate food plan for you.Don’t use or think of the word”diet.” It only serves to defeat you because it implies deprivation.And as humans,we do not like to be deprived of anything.
I might also suggest that you join a weight-loss group,like Overeaters Anonymous,or better still,a group like Weight is easier to lose weight if you are partnered with people who have the same goal as you.
Good luck to you,and eat healthy!!
PS:If you are a young person and need to lose weight:Start now because with every year,it becomes more and more difficult to lose weight and keep it off.Take the word of an old geezer.I know whereof I speak,sadly.
