Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Chris asks…

Is it true that consuming dairy can counteract successful weight loss?

I ask this because I realise that many weight loss programs suggest a cut-back on dairy consumption.

The reality in which I see is: Most of the individuals I know who consume dairy as a staple in their diets are quite often slender in comparison to those who do not.

weight loss cardiff answers:

You’re correct.

Dairy is actually a healthy accessory for weight loss, because the protein helps repair muscle tissue; the Vitamin D helps build strong bones; the Phosphorus helps maintain bone strength and generate energy; the Niacin helps to metabolize sugars and fatty acids; the Vitamin A helps to maintain the immune system; Vitamin B12 helps maintain red blood cells and nerve tissue.

There are so many benefits to milk that it can potentially interrupts one’s success to lose weight, if eliminated all together – especially if dairy is prominent in your ethnic diet, because not all culture consume any dairy at all (i.e East-Asian)

Sharon asks…

How would i go about doing my senior project on weight loss and the adrenal glands?

I’m a high school senior and i would like do my research on the connection between weight loss and the adrenal glands with my product being a weight loss program. How would i go about doing this? Sources would be very helpful.

weight loss cardiff answers:

I would start by researching the adrenal glands and the hormones they make (cortisol and epinephrine eg.) They are involved in the stress response and indirectly in the regulation of body fat. From there I’d look at the connection between exercise and stress as it relates to cortisol levels. Good luck!

Linda asks…

How can I get out of my LA Weight Loss contract?

I am disabled with daily severe migraines among other things. I gained 60lbs from predizone treatments, which I no long take. I signed up for this weight loss program and told them I needed it to be contingent upon my health issues. 1 week into the program, my headaches got worse and now after 2 months I haven’t got out of bed. They know this, but they keep putting me on a “HOLD”. I think I over shot this program based on my medical status. I paid over $1000 and now I can’t see to get anyone to give me a staight answer on how to get out of the contract. Anyone?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Did you put the contingency in the contract? If not maybe you can make a cash settlement with them or take a chance, let them sue you, and take it to court.

Weight Loss Tips

The most important thing to remember as you begin any weight loss plan is that there is no quick fix or magic pill that will help you lose your extra pounds and keep them off. The most successful weight loss plans combine healthy eating, balanced nutrition and regular exercise to help you lose weight. Often, people find themselves in a perpetual diet cycle, always thinking they have a few pounds to lose, or yo-yo dieting – losing weight and then gaining it right back, only to start dieting again. By putting more emphasis on improving your health, experts agree that you can raise your overall self–esteem, resulting in healthier eating habits, long-term weight loss and improved health. Successful weight loss over the long term will likely include: adhering to a healthy lifestyle (including nutritious foods and physical activity), making changes in the way you think about food, and paying attention to reasons why you eat (emotions, boredom, or reward vs. Actually being hungry). To lose weight, you must eat fewer calories than your body uses. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to eat less food. There are many ways you can continue to enjoy foods you like while working towards your weight loss goals, creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle: Create lower-calorie versions of some of your favorite dishes by substituting low-calorie fruits and vegetables in place of higher-calorie ingredients. The water and fiber in fruits and vegetables will add volume to your dishes, so you can eat the same amount of food with fewer calories. Most fruits and vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories and are filling. Choose sensible portion sizes. Using your measuring cups at home will help you learn how large a recommended serving size really is.When dining out, try splitting an entrée with a friend or family member or saving half of your food for later. Choose low-fat dairy and meat products. In addition to helping you lose weight, low-fat dairy products can help to prevent and lower high blood pressure. Engage in daily physical activity. Engaging in some kind of physical activity – whether it be gardening, dancing, walking, or playing golf or tennis – will enliven your physical and mental health and help to keep the extra pounds off. Plan your meals and snacks ahead of time and tune into the feelings you experience while eating. By planning your meals ahead of time, you will be less likely to binge on less healthy foods and more inclined to eat in moderation and when you are truly hungry (not when you are feeling unpleasant feelings such as boredom, stress, or loneliness).

Weight loss tips

weight loss tips to help you lose weightNeed some help with your weight loss? Below are some great weight loss tips to help you that extra bit, these weight loss tips offers pointers for pratical, effective weight loss tactics. Tips include healthy eating advice, support, exercise, preparation of food and much more. Enjoy!

Tip #1
To make a delicious low fat mayonnaise simply combine one teaspoon Dijon mustard or one teaspoon satay sauce with low fat yoghurt.

Tip #2
Avoid skipping meals. Eating increases your matabolism, thus skipping meals can ‘trick’ your body into slowing down its metabolism in an attempt to conserve calories during a period it perceives as a situation where limited fuel is available.

Tip #3
Stuffing vegetables such as capsicum and zucchini with tasty fillings of mince chicken, meat or tuna are easy to do and very healthy and low fat.

Tip #4
Pita bread roll ups or wraps with salad fillings, are great for picnics, school lunches or to take to work.

Tip #5
Exerise, exercise, exercise! Exercise increases your metabolism and burning off excess fat. When is the best time to exercise? Our metabolism slows down about 8 hours after we wake up, so 30 minutes of exercise in the evening, before dinner will increase your metabolism for about two to three more hours just when it was starting to slow down. This produces a significant increase in fat burned off, even after the exercise is over.

Tip #6
Adding alfalfa or mung beans to your salad brings in extra iron.

Tip #7
Good cooking and healthy eating begins with learning about nutrition and how to prepare healthy recipes.

Tip #8
Plan the week’s family menus in advance and just purchase those ingredients at a once weekly shopping trip.

Tip #9
Be positive! The more you feel good about yourself the easier and faster it is to lose weight.

Tip #10
Learn how to make over family favourite recipes by cutting out fats, salt and sugar. Substitute non fat yoghurt for cream, stir fry minus oil and use herbs and spices instead of salt for flavour.

Tip #11
Please consult your doctor before beginning an exercise or weight loss program.

Tip #12
Eat slowly and chew each bite completely to decrease your appetite

Tip #13
Eat three small meals and two snacks daily instead of two or three huge meals.

Tip #14
It’s a myth that you need oil to stir fry! Use chicken stock instead and cut down on hidden fat.

Tip #15
There is more fat in a plate of toasted muesli than a plate of bacon and eggs! Purchase non-toasted muesli instead.

Tip #16
Avoid removing the skins of fruits and vegetables – most of the nutrients are concentrated just under the skin.

Tip #17
Hot water with a squeeze of lemon before breakfast get the metabolism going for the day, helps prevent constipation and is excellent for the skin.

Tip #18
The best source of vegetable protein is from soya beans or tofu. All legumes provide some protein, so include lentils, lima beans etc into casseroles and soups.

Tip #19
Find a weight loss “buddy,” club, or support group. This will help you stay with your weight loss program.

Tip #20
Though difficult, try not eating 3 hours or more before bed time.

Tip #21
I cut up a whole watermelon and leave it in the fridge to snack on over a few days. It is sweet, juicy, yummy and filling. It really has helped me because when i go to the fridge looking for something when i see the watermelon it stops me having something more calorie laden. Having it handy so that it is just as easy to eat as a biscuit or whatever makes the world of difference. Eating at night time is my downfall too. I cant just not eat at night so i allow for it in my daily eating. I have those 97%fat free rice crackers and/or fruit or air popped popcorn. For me i just cant not eat at night time. I find i dont sleep very well if i go from dinner time to breakfast without anything. Although we do eat dinner very early (around 5.30) because we like to eat with the kids. I think it is best to know your weaknesses and try to work around them. Also, i dont think it can be said too many times – drinking water makes all the difference.

Tip #22
Make pasta your fast food choice – you can prepare a pasta meal and salad in 10-12 minutes.

Tip #23
Chilli helps to speed up metabolism – even the milder varieties.

Tip #24
Omelettes can be made just using egg whites! A dramatic reduction in fat.

Tip #25
Limit salt in cooking. Other names for salt include baking soda, baking powder, MSG and soya sauce.

Tip #26
For low fat gravy, drop ice cubes into the baking tray. Fat will stick to the ice cubes and can then be removed.

Tip #27
Chew sugarless gum. It speeds up the digestive system, burning more calories, and sometimes kills a craving.

Tip #28
Drinking hot water as appose to cold water can increase the speed of your metabolism and burn more calories.

Tip #29
Make casseroles the day before use. Refrigerate and skim fat from the top before re heating.

Tip #30
Always eat before you go food shopping and always prepare a shopping list. Only purchase food which relates to your weekly menu plan and don’t be tempted to buy goodies.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Mary asks…

What are some important components of a successful weight loss plan?

Hello Everyone,

I would like to know what are some good ways to help people lose weight?

For instance, if you were to create a weight loss program what would be something that you would make sure to emphasis or implement?

Thanks in advance for your time.

weight loss cardiff answers:

The most critical aspect of a weight loss program is selecting foods that are nutritionally rich and lower in calories.

I lost 80 pounds by simply changing to a low-fat whole plant based diet as described by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr. I do exercise, but I learned through experience that diet is far more important than the level of activity. That being said, I do exercise moderately for about one hour each day. Weight training is also a good way to build muscle rather than fat. The volume of tissue created with the same number of calories is seven times more for fat than muscle. I’d rather have an additional pound of muscle rather than seven pounds of fat.

I also learned that maintaining a healthy weight is a lifestyle change. You don’t keep weight off by joining Weight Watchers for one year. Most victims of commercial weight loss programs learn that they cannot keep the weight off for more than about a year or two. Atkins and calorie restricted diets also do not work for the vast majority of people. (Kolata)

Michael asks…

What’s the most effective weight loss program out there?

So I’m trying to loss some serious weight before my wedding date, which is 7 months from now. Can anyone recommend a good weight loss program?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food after 7 p.m.
I know a woman who lost 60 pounds a month on it. She did nothing else!

Mark asks…

Why does the weight loss program discourage exercise?

I’m on this weight loss program and they say not to exercise too much since I’m only eating 1200 calories. why do they discourage much needed exercise? Isn’t it healthy?
I want to work out 5 times a week one hour a day on the elliptical and I know I will have better results…do you think this is a good Idea, I’m also a bit used to it
Yeah…I thinking money…..

weight loss cardiff answers:

They say a body needs 900 calories (minimum) to function properly. If you are burning more than 300 calories in exercise, there’s your reason…

I would suggest you increase your caloric intake by how much you plan to burn off (on the treadmill/elliptical/whatever)

consult your trainer and tell them that you want to lose weight but you also want to be fit. Compensate with food what you lose in the gym!

Can you lose weight running in place?

Jenny asks…

Most effective way to lose weight by running?

What is the most effective way to lose weight by running, I am doing a low intensity 50 minute run everyday. Is this the best way to be losing weight, do you guys have any more effective ways of losing weight with running???

weight loss cardiff answers:

Running easy along with controlling your calorie intake is the most effective way to lose weight.
Each mile burns about 100 calories, it takes 3500 calories to lose one pound.

So successful weight loss requires a good diet and exercise.

Your low intensity running could be burning as much as 500 calories, which adds up to a lot over a period of time.

Paul asks…

How would losing weight improve my running scores?

I was wondering, If I lose weight, will my running scores improve? So far I lost about 30 pounds. I am doing Field Hockey in the fall and am expected to run a mile and a half in 12:30. In what ways will my running scores improve if I continue to lose more weight?


weight loss cardiff answers:

It’s a lot easier to run if you lose weight, which can help you run faster if you don’t have extra weight dragging you down
