Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Steven asks…

How many calories should I be eating with daily yoga?

I do two hours of yinyasa flow every day and two hours of gymnastics per week. Before the yoga, I ate 1,800 calories. Should I up the amount I eat? I’m getting different answers from online calculators. Thank you! P.S. I’m looking for how much I should eat for weight loss.
I read that vinyasa flow burns about 500 calories per hour.
Oops, sorry about that.
I’m 5 1” and 140 pounds. I’m recovering from multiple eating disorders, so it’s a little high.

weight loss cardiff answers:

You should aim to have they same amount of calories each day. Regardless of how many hours yoga or gymnastics you do. Although, your weight, height and age is needed to calculate the recommended amount of calories per day.

Joseph asks…

How do you figure out the percentage of body weight lost after losing 13 pounds?

Weird question, I know. But some employees at work are doing a little weightloss challenge. The person who loses the most “percentage” after 6 weeks wins. So far, everyone has lost 13 pounds each. They all understand that the person who started with the lowest weight is ahead of the percentage game so far, but now it’s game on!! They only have a week and a half left … one of the girls weighed 216, one weighed 180 and the other weighed 170. How can they calculate how much percentage of weight they’ve actually lost? Hope you can help.
PS – if you have something rude or ignorant to say, don’t bother replying.
What I meant, is take for example the 180 pound person – she lost 13 pounds. How much would that 13 pounds work out to be percentage-wise? Like how much percentage of her body weight did she lose? How much did the others lose? Can you tell I totally suck at math? lol
Mama Gretch, you rock! Thanks for not only answering my question, but figuring out everything for me as well. Now I get it, and will pass the info on.
Tried to chose your answer as the best one, but the system will only allow me to do so after 24 hours. I’ll be back then to do that.
Thanks to the others who answered as well.

weight loss cardiff answers:

OK – I’ve done the math for you (not too hard once you know the equation!) To figure out a percentage of weight lost (or percentage of anything), you would divide the number of pounds lost by the starting weight. For instance:

13 pounds lost/216 pounds starting weight = 6% loss
13 pounds lost/180 pounds starting weight = 7.2% loss
13 pounds lost/170 pounds starting weight = 7.6 % loss

If everyone lost the same amount of weight, the winner would always be the person who weighed the least to begin with.

LOL jayj… Santa needs to get you a new calculator for Christmas! No problem, and tell your colleagues to keep up the good work (wish I could do as well…)

Donna asks…

would dieting cause a flatchest and droopy face? How could I lose weight and avoid that at the same time?

Im currently on a low-carb diet in which i only eat healthy food such as veggies and protein, and avoid fat and sugar completely. I workout for 30mins-1 hour daily. I’m concerned about getting a flatchest or droopy cheeks due to the weight loss. Is there any way i can lose weight effectively without those happening?

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you do it the wright way by losing weight healthely 1-2lbs a week.
Find calorie/fitness calculator on the net, enter all your stats and it will tell you how many calories you need a day to maintain, take off 300-400cal off that number and thats how much you need to lose.
Eat 5-6 small meals a day (eat every 2-3 hours)
5-8 servings of fruit and veggies a day
8 glasses of water
have complex carbs for breakfast – they give you energy
have lean meat (protein) for dinner – repairs muscle
cardio exercise 4-6 times a week for 30-50min, light weight training
dont consume foods that are made of white flour (white bread, cakes, past etc.), sugar loaded foods (cookies, icecream, candy etc) and nothing fried, oily.
Ofcourse you can spoil yourself once in a while with a little treat:)

What is the best exercise that can help me lose weight quickly at home?

pleez help me i am 15 and need to lose weight in 2 weeks so i need a really good exercise.

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you want to do it at home these are the best ideas:
hula hooping
sit ups and crunches
star jumps
running on the spot
if you have a step you can do stepping for a while
lie on your back and circle your legs like riding a bike
lying on your back slowly raise both legs together up in the air and then lower slowly, it burns your abs

Mandy asks…

Is it unhealthy to lose 15 pounds in 2 weeks?

I just read a little article online giving tips on how to lose weight in 2 weeks.

It seems kind of fast to me. That’s over a pound a day. What do you think? I think maybe 3 pounds a week is a healthy way to lose weight. Or 5 if you wanted to lose weight quickly.

I want to lose 15 pounds and I’m looking for all the help/advice out there!

weight loss cardiff answers:

I think it’s a little bit of a challenge to lose 15 pounds in 2 weeks. I agree with what you said earlier about losing around 3 pounds a week. Just stick to 3-5 pounds a week to be safe. You wouldn’t want to lose a lot of weight too fast, that can be dangerous.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Michael asks…

What weight loss tips do you have?

My goal is to start working out tomorrow and I really only need to lose 30 pounds to be at a healthy weight. So my questions are:
1) What machines do you recomend and how long should I work out for on my first day?
2) How often should I up my work out time?
3) What foods should I avoid?
4) How long will it take roughly to lose 30 pounds?
5)I’m thinking that because I’m 23 and not really over weight it will be easy to lose 30 pounds or am I kidding myself?
5) Any other advice you have for me (a soon to be former couch potato) would be greatly accepted.

weight loss cardiff answers:

From memory, body 4 life recommends small meals, maybe 5 to 6 a day. Only good carbs, like whole wheat bread, yogurt, bake potato’s. Good protein like fat-free cottage cheese, grilled or boiled chicken, tuna in water, all natural peanut butter, turkey meat. Two or three portions of fruit and veggies a day.

The work out regimen was upper body one day, aerobic the next, lower body the next, aerobic the next for six days. One day off. It was five sets of weights in a progression format (i.e. 8lbs 10 times, 10 lbs 8 times, etc.), and interval aerobics. It is a good book. I never could stick with it to gain muscle. You can try reading dr.john berardi too. He seems like he knows what he is talking about in his newsletters and a book he co-authored.

Weight Loss Tips Anyone?

Does anyone have any amazing fast working weight loss tips that are easy…?
I want to look good for my solider coming home from Germany for the first time in a year, longest time we’ve been apart :(, in july…. I can not procrastinate any longer.

weight loss cardiff answers:

How many times do we hear from some overweight people that “they have tried everything” to lose weight but nothing works?
Yet these people have *never* tried missing a meal every so often or at least reducing their portions or giving up sugar and fattening foods,.,.
Losing weight is simplicity itself: eat less and burn more.

Sandy asks…

Can someone give me tips for weight loss?

I’m a 13 year old girl 5’4″ and 128 pounds. I want to roughly lose 15 pounds. How long will that take? I’m going to Florida for a week so I’ll be eating out a lot just so you know :/ I only drink water, no soda or anything, and my exercise daily is usually just dance and squats. Can you give me easy tips and other things I should know? Thanks

weight loss cardiff answers:

You’re normal weight – the MOST you should loose is 5 pounds – no more. I am one inch shorter than you, and weigh 119 – so you should be a little heavier than me.

Dancing uses up a lot of energy, so I think your exercise is great – and it’s a good thing you drink water instead of soda. Soda is unhealthy.

When you eat out, try to choose the healthier foods – avoid foods with lots of fat or sugar in them. DO eat meat, soup, and other high-calorie foods during the day, but in the evening, try to stick to a light salad, some yogurt, or some fruit. Also, avoid eating after 7.

Other than loosing just a few pounds, you should be fine 🙂 You get your exercise and drink healthy drinks. 🙂
