weight loss cardiff answers:

1. Take it one step at a time

Start by paying attention to what you eat. Cut back on fat and sweets and add more fruit and vegetables. After you have that under control, add exercise. If you hate to exercise try it for only 15 minutes a day at first, then a 1/2-hour. Keep in mind that while you are exercising you are burning calories and not eating. Also, it will be easier if you chose an activity that you enjoy.

2. Find a friend

It is always good to have support when you are trying to lose weight. Find a friend who wants to lose weight and compare notes, weigh-in together and maybe even have a contest.

3. Use weights

Working out weights will build muscle and raise your metabolism so you will burn more calories. Also, muscle takes up less space than fat so you will be smaller ( but probably weigh more).

4. Eat fewer carbs

Don’t eat as much bread and pasta and you will see a difference.

5. Set a goal

Set a deadline to lose the weight and write it down. For example, ‘ By Dec 14/04 I will weigh 150 lbs or less’. Put it somewhere you will see it daily.

6. Give up soda

If you drink a soda or 2 a day you are adding empty calories. If you find it hard to stop
completely, cut back at first and drink water instead.

7. Grill or boil

Avoid fried meat, grill and use lots of spices. You will get used to it and probably enjoy it more.

8. Don’t buy junk food

When you go shopping, don’t go on an empty stomach and you will be less likely to buy junk food. Keep your home ‘junk food free’ so you won’t be tempted to indulge.

9. Eat breakfast

Consume most of your calories early in the day and always eat breakfast. Don’t eat after 8pm and
not only will you avoid those added calories but you will sleep better.

10. Give yourself a treat

When you tell yourself that you can’t have something you want it more. Give yourself a treat once a day ( ie. Half a cookie) and you won’t feel you are missing out.

11. Use smaller plates

Trick yourself into believing that you are eating more by using a smaller plate.

12. Drink lots of water

Drink water when you are feeling hungry and you will get that ‘full’ feeling.

13. Don’t eat everything on your plate

Many times we eat just because it’s there. Pay attention to when you have had enough.

14. Eat five or six meals a day

Eating more frequently will keep you from getting too hungry.

15. Plan your workout sessions

Write your workout sessions in your journal or planner.

16. Stay away from fad diets

Fad diets don’t work. If you lose weight fast chances are that you will gain it back ( and more)
just as fast. It takes time to put it on and time to take it off.

17. Do several workouts a day

While you are watching TV do crunches and leg lifts.

18. Measure your food

If you decide to have junk food for a snack – be sure to measure and control what you eat.

19. Keep pre-cut vegetables

…and ward off those cravings.

20. Create Good Habits

It is a known fact that when we do something twenty-one times it becomes a habit. Create good eating habits.

Take care…

Nancy asks…

What are the benefits of water in a weight-loss diet?

As I mentioned before, my dad has high cholesterol and is trying to lose some weight. I heard that drinking water can help weightloss in a number of ways, but I was wondering how it helps?
Like, does it cure bloating and flush out the system or something.
Also, my dad hates the taste of water, but he loves orange squash. Is squash just as good as water? Its sugar free and low in calories.

weight loss cardiff answers:

I know you want to lose weight fast and easy, who doesn’t right? We all need to do it in a healthy way though, because crash diets just don’t work. Believe me, I’ve tried them all. If I did lose some weight, I put it right back on when I started eating normally again.

1-2 pounds a week is a healthy goal to lose weight. The only diet that ever worked for me is the diet solution program. It isn’t magical, it takes time and effort, so if you just want to take a pill and wake up skinny, don’t bother to check it out. Just keep dreaming! But if you really want to lose weight and feel good in your own skin, then it’s worth checking out the diet program. It really is the solution to stop the yo-yos.

It’s up to you, nobody else….

John asks…

What is the best interval training program to really boost my weight loss/cardio fitness?

I am in fairly good shape and I usually run or walk at least 3 to 4 miles when I work out outside or at the gym. But, I have hit a bit of a plateau and I would love to recharge my weight loss. I have heard interval training is a great way to do this.

I have starting alternating between running/walking, but I am unsure about the times/sets.

Any suggestions?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Any interval training program would give you a break from your plateau, because it’s very different from steady-state cardio – i.e. The running you do. It really depends on what you enjoy doing. If you want to stick to the running, then try the suggested variations of sprinting and walking.

Typically I would suggest you start with 30 sec sprint and 60 rest intervals. When you sprint give it all you have 80-90% of your max effort. Your rest period should be at 30%. I would do 8 to 10 rounds to start with and would only do up to 3 sessions a week until you get used to it. If of course you find this too easy, try a 60 sec work 90 sec rest (or 120 sec) rest intervals.

If you don’t want to do running, you can try skipping with knees high up, alternating with burpees. If you’re like me and you get bored easily you can make up your own intervals with just about any full-body exercise, as long as you make sure to work really hard during the work periods and to rest well in the rest periods.

If you’re looking for a structured program – try Josh Hillis’ Fighter workouts at the link below.

Either way I am sure you’ll see results and you’ll love them. Interval training is hard but rewarding :o)

Laura asks…

How can I lose weight easily as a male teenager?

I am currently at 5-foot-5 and 157 pounds. I am a 15 year old teenage male looking to lose weight. I was generally an average, regular looking kid as a toddler and child, but soon realized in middle school I had a gained a little fat on me, developing a “gut” as you could say. It stuck with me all the way till now, but it’s gotten a little worse. Between now and September of ’06 I went from 115 to 150ish. I don’t like the way I look and I feel uncomfortable about it in public places. My doc said the main problem was going to bed right after I eat with little exercise and eating late at night. I’ve gotten slightly better about it but barely any improvements. I’ve tried using the ab lounge consistently but little improvements as well. I want to find out how to lose wait on my sides, belly button area etc. Any knowledgable or valid answers would REALLY help me out big time!

I seem to think it’s my lack of metabolism and not eating right. Ways to improve my metabolism if thats the case?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Being a 15 year old male, this is a very easy time to lose weight, as you are growing. My advice to you would be to not worry too much about your weight, and to slowly modify your diet, one step at a time. Like maybe decide to replace soda/juice with water, and nothing more. Then slowly add more things in. Most important is exercise. Go out and play! Find some kind of physical activity that you enjoy! Ride a bike, shoot hoops, find a sport you enjoy, dance (ha for some reason i don’t think you are a dancer) , rollerskate, go swimming, etc…..Using the ab lounge is not going to get you anywhere because it isn’t fun and it isn’t cardiovascular exercise, so it doesn’t burn a lot of calories. Not that the ab lounge is a bad thing, it will help build up your stomach muscles, but wont eliminate any fat on your stomach. It you really want to commit to losing weight I would recommend joining a gym. Do you have any friends that weight train? Lifting weights on a regular basis builds muscle (which is very easy for you do do, being a 15 year old guy) and the more muscle you develop the more calories you burn. I found that I actually like lifting weights, I somewhat look forward to it, whereas running, I do, but I don’t like it so much. Your metabolism will increase as you become more active, burning more calories. Good luck, and try to do what makes you feel good.

How do i lose weight easily with Asthma?

I’m a 14 Year old Girl with Asthma, so its very difficult to exercise. An ideas on how i can lose weight fast with Minimum exercise?

weight loss cardiff answers:

You don’t need to exercise to lose fat. All you need to do is eat a proper and varied diet of wholsome and nutritious foods while keeping your daily caloric intake below your daily caloric burn. Check these fitness facts.

• If you consume fewer calories than you burn, you have to lose fat eventually. There are no exceptions to this fact.

• There are only two nonsurgical things we can do to sculpt your body and they are (1) add or lose fat and (2) add or lose muscle. Muscle can only be lost naturally through atrophy.

• A pound of fat will yield about 3500 calories (Kcal) of energy.

• An average person must run or walk about 5 miles (8 km) every day to burn one pound of fat per week assuming their diet allows it.

• An average person must run or walk about 350 miles (563 km) to burn 10 pounds and their diet must allow it. If they walk 350 miles (13.4 marathons) at 3mph it will take them 117 hours or about three full 40 hour work weeks to burn 10 pounds of fat.

• If an average person consumes 500 calories per day less than they burn, they will lose about a pound a week with no extra time or physical effort required.

•Running does not burn any more fat than walking as long as the distance remains the same.

• It does not matter if a person runs or walks a given distance…they will burn the same number of calories. Calories are energy and energy expenditure is not time dependent. How fast a person runs has nothing to do with how many calories they burn. Only the distance determines the calories burned.

• There is no exercise which will remove fat from a particular place on the body. Your body (genetics) determines where you lose fat, not you nor your diet nor your exercise. Spot fat removal by diet or exercise is a myth which is why people spend so much money on liposuction.

• It is not necessary to do “cardio” to burn fat. Cardio is aerobic exercise while maintaining a heart rate of 80% of max or more which is used to maintain cardio-vascular fitness. You can burn fat in your sleep.

• It doesn’t matter how hard or how long you exercise, you will not lose any fat if you eat too much. You can always eat more calories than you can burn. When it comes to burning fat, diet always trumps exercise.

• There are no supplements which will make your body burn fat. Only you can do that with diet control.

Here’s how to lose fat.

Trying to burn fat without counting calories is like driving while wearing a blindfold. You know what you’re doing but you can’t see the hazards. You’re going to have to count and track calories if you want to burn fat in the most efficient way. Here’s how.

• Go here and calculate your BMR.

• Go here and multiple your BMR by the appropriate number for your activity level to get your daily burn rate or the number of calories you burn per day. For example, if you are “lightly active”, multiply your BMR by 1.375 or 1.725 if you are “very active”.

• Subtract 500 calories to burn one pound of fat per week or 1000 calories to burn two pounds of fat per week. Don’t try to burn faster than 2 pounds per week.

• Use the following macronutrient ratios for your daily burn: 55% calories from carbs, 20% calories from fat, and 25% calories from protein.

If you do the above, you will burn fat as long as nothing changes such as your activity level or your metabolic rate or weight. As you lose weight, you will need to recalculate you BMR because it is weight dependent.

If you want a website to do all the math for you, make it easy for you to look up the calories for your foods, track your intake, and provide you with a helpful discussion forum of fat burners like you, go here and sign up for your own free fitness account.

It takes a little bit of effort to understand the above and to make the necessary dietary changes but it will serve you well for the rest of your life by helping you habituate smart eating habits. That’s important because keeping your weight under control only gets harder as you get older.
