Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Lisa asks…

Does anyone have a quick way to lose weight and ideas for distractions during the day?

I’m 16 and I weigh around 195 lbs. I always feel self-conscious around my friends but I don’t exactly feel fat. I don’t like that I’m unhealthy and I feel like I’d be happier if I weighed more of an average weight for my age and height. Unfortunately, I have a hard time with sticking to exercising and I almost kinda don’t want to admit that I have a problem and I need to work on it. I could easily cut out bad foods because we don’t have them around my house. My major problem is that I have snacks all the time. Not unhealthy snacks, but I do have a lot of them. I need something else to do with my time around the house that will keep me occupied and not thinking about my rumbling stomach. I’m also hoping to lose weight by the end of the summer so that I can be one of those miraculous summer transformations. I’ve always wanted to do that. Please say you have some way to help me!!

It would mean a lot to me if I could get your help. Thank you!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Oh honey, I can so hear the pain in your question. I have struggled with my weight since the age of 16 also.

I have a friend at work, her and I have been doing the Atkins diet. It really works and best of all, you get to eat foods that we were always taught were bad for us. I have lost 25 pound in just 6 weeks.

Go to, read about the diet and it will explain to you how it works. If you have any questions, feel free to email me. I am a nurse and work during the day but I will answer any questions that I can. Hang in there, you’re beautiful no matter what size you are.

Maria asks…

What is the fastest way to lose weight without starving myself ?

I need to lose weight fast and am willing to do almost anything. I know starving myself is not healthy, so I do not want to go that route but any suggestions would be appreicated.

weight loss cardiff answers:


No, seriously now. =] Change things in your life and you can easily drop a few, and a few more, and a few more.. Until you’re satisfied with your weight.

Stop eating fast food, it disrupts weight loss completely. You don’t need to cut it out completely, just look online at your favourite fast food restaurant’s websites at the nutrition information. Nearly all of them have it.
Salads are a good fast food choice, but with grilled chicken on top (if its chicken) and always look at the dressing packets. Ask for light or fat-free dressings with salads. Most of those little packets are 150 calories or less.

Next, cut out badbadbad carbs such as crackers, white bread, pasta, etc. Go for whole wheat/whole grain bread.

Cheese is another thing that disrupts diets. Unless you eat a very small amount or maybe part-skim if you can get it. Peanut butter is another thing you need to eat in smaller amounts. Maybe a tablespoon at a time? Spread on a stick of celery or for a sandwich on wholegrain bread.

SODA. SODA. Badbad! It’s amazing how many calories you can down from one soda can. Maybe diet soda? Coke zero tastes nearly exactly like regular soda with about 2 calories a can. Just don’t drink a lot, it’s still bad.

Drink water! It keeps you dehydrated, and full. Most people are just thirsty when they think they’re hungry, which is why they overeat. Eight 8oz glasses of water is what you should get in a day.

Measure things out. You can completely get 10x more calories in by simply eyeballing it.

Read packages. You don’t need to cut out your favourite foods completely. For example, a Chips Ahoy cookie only has 80 calories. Sure, an slightly high amount of fat but it’s a cookie. Eating two of those wouldn’t kill you.

And the most important thing.. WATER! Drink water. Water can keep you full, and even if you’re just having a small snack having some water with it will make it feel more like a big meal in your stomach.

Good luck! And I’m so glad to see someone tonight who /states/ they don’t want to starve themselves. That’s good. Very good.

Sharon asks…

How can I lose weight and make my hair grow back faster?

I had cancer and they gave me steroids, I gained so much weight.
People make fun of me and it hurts because I can’t help it. I want to be skinny again.
Is there a way I can lose weight fast? I’m not on steroids anymore and I’m cancer free.

My hair is grown back but really short and I’m tired of wearing wigs. Is there a vitamin I can take to make my hair grow faster?

Thanks 🙂

weight loss cardiff answers:

Weight from steroids comes off really easily. I lost 45 lbs in 4 months eating fruit and vegetables and walking endlessly.

Hair you just have to wait for. I have a collection of beautiful scarves that I rotate.

How can i lose a lot of weight off my hips, stomach, and legs? And I can’t buy any diet plans or pills.
And i need to lose it Quick!

weight loss cardiff answers:

theres a pic… Heres wut u do
The plank exercise ranked number 10 in the ACE study and is a great way to build endurance in both the abs and back, as well as stabilizer muscles. To do it right:
1. Lie face down on mat resting on the forearms, palms flat on the floor.
2. Push off the floor, raising up onto toes and resting on the elbows.
3. Keep your back flat, in a straight line from head to heels.
4. Tilt your pelvis and contract your abdominals to prevent your rear end from sticking up in the air.
5. Hold for 20 to 60 seconds, lower and repeat for 3-5 reps.

More LITTLE tips,
1]dont eat 3hrs b4 bedtime
2]cut down on breads and amounts of food,
3]jogging, jump jacks, jump rope, yoga exercises,
4]set a goal and kick ass

James asks…

What is a quick way to lose weight?

I need to lose about sixty pounds as quickly as possible. I jog everyday, but i need to lose the weight quicker. I’ve been eating healthy food so please don’t give me diet ideas. I need exercising ideas. Any suggestions?

weight loss cardiff answers:

There is no quick way to quickly lose 60 pounds and keep it off long term. It is best to slowly and steadily lose weight.

Also, losing weight quickly causes metabolism to slow down and the body thinks it starving. Did you ever see how little the biggest loser contestants have to eat to maintain their usually high normal weight after the show is over?? It is generally between 1200-1500 calories a day with at least 1-2 hours a day of exercise. You don’t want to live a life like that, just do it slow and steadily.

One thing you can do exercise wise to lose weight is to do intervals while jogging. Alternate spurts of a few minutes of faster jogging/running with your normal routine.

Mandy asks…

Easy and quick way to lose weight!?

Please don’t respond with you don’t need to lose weight blah blah..

I weigh roughly 145 pounds, I’m around 5’9 I know my BMI is pretty average, but there’s parts of my body that needs triming down! Especially my stumoch!

I’ve tried excercising on a daily basis, doing situps (roughly 100-200 a day), it worked to an extent, it toned my abs a bit, but not flattened out my stumoch

I want an easy diet/weight loss program that doesn’t take long to take effect, any ideas are welcomed, I’m up for any form of dieting as long as it works!!
I’m 15 years of age! A regular day is as follows to me:

Breakfast: Nothing
Lunch Time: One 15p packet of crisps
Tea: An average sized family meal
Snacks: Maybe one or two snacks if I feel hungry
Supper: Nothing

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.

Donald asks…

Is the all water diet effective? Would anyone recommend something for easy, fast weight loss?

I really want to loose weight, and I’m trying to find the most effective, fastest diet along with exercise to do so. I’ve been looking at the all water diet, which consist of drinking only water for 2/3 days, and eating one day after only drinking water those 2/3 days. Has anyone tried this and/or recommend this diet? Like is it fast and are/were there good results? If not, any other suggestions? No pills or anything like that. I’m only 13 and I don’t want my mom worrying about me and asking questions as to why I want to buy pills for that. I just need to start loosing weight.

weight loss cardiff answers:

You will lose weight for awhile…but in the process you are going to destroy your metabolism, make you lose muscle and lean mass, and feel really sleepy all day. Not worth it. Get yourself on a real diet and exercise program for the best results.

Paul asks…

Easy Weight Loss??

Basically I’m looking for someone who has recently found an easy way to lose about 20-30 pounds. I don’t exactly have a schedule that allows me to have much time to work out. Crunches before bed is about the most I can fit. And I’m not very good with dieting, mainly due to being on the go a lot. Anyone have any advice as far as either a very easy diet to follow, or some tried and true tricks?? I’m looking to lose about 25 pounds by May!!

weight loss cardiff answers:

I’d swear by this one!

Grapefruit or 4 oz. Unsweetened Grapefruit Juice

2 Lg. Eggs, Any style

2 Slices of Bacon, cooked medium

Grapefruit or 4 oz. Unsweetened Grapefruit Juice

Salad, any type of dressing, any size

Meat, any type, any amount


Grapefruit or 4 oz. Unsweetened Grapefruit Juice

Meat, any type, any amount

Vegetable, any red or green vegetable, cooked with any seasonings (or a salad)

Coffee or Tea, 1 cup

Glass of Tomato Juice or Skim Milk with sweetener

1. At any meal, you can eat until you are full or cannot eat any more.

2. Don’t eliminate anything from the diet. Especially don’t skip the bacon or omit the salads. It is the combination of these foods that make the diet work.

3. The grapefruit is important because it acts as a catalyst that starts the burning process.

4. Cut down on all caffeine consumption, it affects the insulin balance that helps the fat burning process (1 cup daily).

5. Do not eat in between meals. If you eat the combination of foods above you will not get hungry.

6. Do not eat desserts, breads, white vegetables or sweet potatoes. You may choose to double or triple your helping of meat, salad, and vegetables. Eat until you are full.

The more you eat the proper combination of foods, the more you will loose.

7. You can loose 18 pounds in 18 days with this diet. There will be no loss for the first 4 days. You should loose 5 pounds on the 5th day. After that you should loose 1 pounds every 2 days until you are at your desired weight.

8. Drink as much water as you like.

9. All soft drinks need to be diet and caffeine free.

10. You may not have white onions, potatoes or celery.

11. You may have red onions, bell peppers, radishes, cucumbers, broccoli, spinach, lettuces, cabbage,

carrots and tomatoes.

Carol asks…

I need an easy to stick to weight loss plan??

I have 3 very young children, and i need to lose weight. Since my kids take up most of my time I don’t have a lot of time to focus on the weight loss. However, I do to to lose some weight so i need a convenient and easy to stick to weight loss program. I know they are hard to come by so if anyone has any suggestions it would be great thank you!!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Im sorry to tell you that there is no quick way to lose weight. Its not easy. But there are simple tricks.

1. Regard all soda as 1.5 pounds in can, on average, that is what you will gain if you drink it.

2. WALK ALL THE TIME! By a pedometer at a drugstore. You should be taking at least 5000 steps a day.

3. Dont let your metabolism drop! Eat small healthy snacks a around (5) times a day instead of meals. A port ion of anything is about a deck of cards sized. The body is not designed to eat 3 meals. By grazing and eating slowly you body has more time to tell you your full takes abotu 20 minutes to respond. The moment youre hungry, your metabolism has dropped and you are more likely to eat more. Dont let youself get hungry. Dont starve yourself.

It will take awile, but its worth it.

Does anyone have an easy but effective weight loss plan?

I dont really want to go on a diet I was thinking more along the lines of working it off… and eating right

weight loss cardiff answers:

Good on you for coming to this decision. I hope I can help you with your situation. There are a couple of things you need to realize you before you embark on your weight loss journey.

Firstly I’m glad you don’t want to diet. In order to lose weight and keep it off you need to make a healthy lifestyle changes and stick to them. There are no two ways about it. Diets only lead to future weight gain.

We need muscle in order to burn fat. Muscle is a very active tissue, so burns fat even while resting. You need to have a certain amount of muscle in order to burn fat efficiently. Every pound of muscle you have will burn 50 extra calories per day.

If you burn more calories than you take in (achieved through a healthy eating plan), build up muscle through strength training and complete 30 minutes of solid cardio a day then weight loss is a certainty.

There is no magic secret to weight loss. It is all about hard work, commitment, goal setting and desire. If you want to lose weight you can and you will.

This following website gives you the tools you need to develop a healthy lifestyle and maintain it for a lifetime.

Good luck and all the best with your weight loss goals
