George asks…

suggestions and tips on weight loss?

Okay so since march of last year I’ve been trying to lose weight, I started out as 5’4 and 141 lbs.

-So from march to June I ate 1340 calories a day and lost 5lbs

-from June to mid July I ate 900 calories a day and lost 5 more lbs

– the i started eating 1200 calories a day and gained about 3lbs back.

-in November I started doing swim team and I was still eating 1200 calories a day plus some extra cause I was like starved. And from then till now I probably gained 6lbs. (From muscle??)

So my question is how can I get to being 130 again without losing my muscle and feeling skinny? I feel so fat with it 🙁 also how many calories should I be eating? Is my body too used to 1200-1300 calories? I feel like I hit a plateau… Also I did go down a inch or two from swimming, but I also feel like I gained a little since summer

Carol asks…

does anybody have any good weight loss tips?

I just stopped taking a medication that helped me gain a lot of weight. My doctor says now I should be able to start losing the weight. Beyond the standard diet and exercise, does anybody have any more specific tips on how to lose the weight?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I hope this tips would help you.

Weight loss tip 1: Decide how much weight you need to lose – Most people start their weight loss journey by claiming to be xyz kilos overweight. This isn’t a healthy way to project or aim for weight loss. Calculate your desired weight against your height by using reliable methods like the BMI, and set a healthy weight loss target. This is often half the battle won.

Weight loss tip 2: Time management – This is quite often overlooked. Decide which part of your day will be dedicated to exercise, when in the week you will stock up on groceries, and when you will do the cooking – all within your current work and home life routine. If you don’t do this now, your days will be rushed and unplanned, and you won’t be able to sustain your weight loss efforts.

Weight loss tip 3: Stock your kitchen – Keep your house well-stocked with fruits, vegetables, healthy meats, grains, cereals, spices, and flavourers. Follow our tricks to healthy cooking, cooking vegetables for the week, and low-fat cooking posts to understand how best you can stock your kitchen with healthy and delicious ingredients. All of this will go into helping the next step – cooking healthy meals at home.

Weight loss tip 4: Eat healthy homecooked meals – Whether it’s you who’s cooking, a family member, or house help, ensure that every one practises healthy cooking methods, and ingredients. Ask any person who’s lost weight the healthy way, and you will always hear about how healthy homecooked meals were a big reason behind it. Use less oil, low salt, fresh produce, and you’ll start seeing results in no time.

Weight loss tip 5 : Start a cardio + weights workout – A healthy weight loss programme is incomplete without a good exercise routine, and weight training mixed with cardio is the best way to lose weight. Of course, variations and forms exist, but any workout that stresses on muscle tone and increased heart rate will always help you lose weight and keep it off. You can either start a home workout today, or rely on gyms for fitness training.

Weight loss tip 6: Alter your snacking habits . Set those French fries aside, skip that aerated drink, and ban those unhealthy deep fried samosas. Explore the healthy snack world and you will find several appetisers, party snacks, movie snacks and meal accompaniments that’ll satisfy every craving of yours.

Weight loss tip 7: Have at least one active hobby – It isn’t sufficient to rely on just 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity per day. Moving from bed to office chair, and back to bed, isn’t a healthy way to live. Buy a motion sensor gaming console that lets you enjoy social games with friends and family, plan weekend trips, clean your house once a week, dance, play sports, the list is endless. Get out of the coffee shop and dining table rut, and you’ll have fun along with the healthy weight loss

Weight loss tip 9: Drink plenty of water – You’ve known that your body relies heavily on water for all important bodily functions, and yet you skimp on drinking adequate quantities of water every day. Well, it’s time to stop that. Check out some exciting ways to make water interesting and you’ll be packing it away in no time. Do not forget to carry a water bottle to your workout, and take a few sips after every 2-3 minutes of exercise.

Weight loss tip 10: Plan healthy vacations – Why go all the way with healthy weight loss, when one tiny vacation will just come along and topple it all? Healthy vacations aren’t impossible. Take a look at how you can eat smart on a holiday, and then at bodyweight workouts that you can carry with you wherever you go, to understand how to holiday right. Above all, remember that these are lifelong habits that’ll help you stay fit forever and not short term weight loss quickfixes

good luck.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Carol asks…

What is an easy way to gain weight while staying fit?

I play baskeball and my coach tells me that im strong but if I were heavier I could move bodies easily. Im about 160 lbs now. How should I put on weight while staying in shape; such as guys like Lebron James lol.

weight loss cardiff answers:

It may be easier to eat six or more smaller, balanced meals rather than eating three large meals, especially if you’re not used to eating much at one time.

Protein powders and nutritional supplements such as Ensure can be added for in-between meal snacks. You can also make your own delicious protein shakes at home with a blender using milk, yogurt, frozen fruit, etc. Look for some easy recipes here:
Exchange the skim milk and fat-free yogurt for regular since you don’t want to lose weight. Most protein powders are not very tasty unless mixed with other ingredients.

Exercise is an important part of healthy weight gain. Strength training is especially important and will build muscles. This can be done at home or in a gym. Cardio exercises are healthy and should be a part of your routine, but they burn maximum calories and may cause you to lose weight if you don’t eat consume plenty of calories. Limit your cardio workout to 30 minutes. Consider activities such as: power walking, jogging, biking, swimming laps, jumping rope, dancing, skating, etc. Yoga and Pilates are excellent additions to your workout as well. Here are some exercises you can do at home to help target certain areas:

Some suggestions to help you gain weight:

1)Add healthy calories to your menu. Start breakfast with a slice of whole-wheat toast and peanut butter.
2)Trail mixes, nuts, dried fruits, and protein bars are healthy high-caloric snacks.
3)Drink healthy beverages such as milk and fruit juice. Avoid sweet drinks that add no nutritional value.
4)Choose the healthy option every time. Avoid fried foods. Eat larger portions of healthier foods such as baked potatoes, chicken, fish, etc.
5)Follow the food pyramid guidelines and make sure that you include all the major food groups in your diet.
6)Consume heart-healthy oils by eating olive, walnut, or canola oil in your homemade salad dressings. Add cheese and nuts to salads for additional healthy calories.
Good luck!

David asks…

How does Acai aid weight loss?

I see all these adverts and things on weight loss sites about taking Acai to help aid weight loss

What does it do, how does it help you lose weight?

weight loss cardiff answers:


Purchase fresh, frozen or dried acai berries if you can find them. Or you can purchase them in this form online. Since it is a nutrient-rich food, you can cook with it and add it to your favorite recipes. It works well as a cereal topping, in granola, smoothies, yogurt, on low-fat ice cream and in things like muffins and cookies (as long as they’re low fat).

Find acai in the form of a liquid extract. The benefit of taking acai in this form is that the nutrients will be super concentrated. Also, if you live in a climate where acai berries don’t grow, this can be a good way to get it as fresh and concentrated as possible.

Take acai in capsule form. Capsules are good if you want to take acai as easily as possible and still receive the benefits. If you make it a part of your daily vitamin and mineral regimen it will be easier to take it consistently.

Susan asks…

What are some tasty foods for weight loss in the summer?

What are some good ideas or recipes for delicious foods that can help you lose weight in the summer?

weight loss cardiff answers:

You don’t need to starve yourself, nor do you need to start a crazy diet to look good in your new swimsuit. Summer weight loss can be best achieved through consuming fewer calories than you burn, and by choosing healthier foods to eat. It’s easier to make better food choices in the summer – heavier food choices and meals full of calories are a turn off from the heat of the summer months. The best summer weight loss foods are those that you don’t need to slave away in the kitchen to prepare, and they are light and refreshing!

The easiest way to cut back on calories is to eat more vegetables and fruits, as recommended by experts. That’s one of the best weight loss tips! Because produce is at its best during the summertime, it’s great to enjoy delicious fruits and vegetables from your local markets and grocery stores. Produce is also full of good antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and fiber too! Enjoy as much as you want as well – don’t limit your portions, as you can’t hurt yourself from enjoying such healthy foods!

If you’re looking to save some time making your meals, add prepared foods like soups and chicken to your fresh produce. It might end up costing you a little more, but you’ll really save time in the long run. Here are some examples of great foods to enjoy that can promote quick weight loss:

Grilled Veggies
You can use grilled onions, zucchini, carrots, bell peppers, asparagus, garlic, and eggplant to make tasty and healthy quick weight loss foods like:

•Grilled vegetable, ricotta, and fresh herb pasta and frittatas
•Grilled vegetable pitas
•Grilled vegetable and goat cheese salads

There’s no formal recipe needed when creating a delicious salad. They can also be made up fast for a quick and healthy meal. Rinse off and slice up your fresh produce. Add some fruits, vegetables, low-fat cheese, toasted nuts, fresh salad greens, and some light raspberry vinaigrette or ginger. You can complete your meal by adding a whole grain roll.
Also, try a good bean or whole-grain salad such as wheatberry or tabouli.
If you decide to flavor your salad with fresh herbs from the garden, you can save calories by adding less dressing. You can also add some meat or fish, as long as it’s done lightly.

Chilled Soups
Another great choice for a low-calorie meal is cold soup. Gazpacho and cucumber-dill soup are both great beginnings to delicious meals. You’ll be able to eat less and feel more full by beginning your meal with a nice tasty low-cal or broth-based soup.

Fruit-Based Desserts
Instead of choosing a traditional dessert rich in calories, satisfy your cravings and sweet tooth with a more natural dessert, such as:

•Grilled banana sundaes made with low-fat ice cream
•Frozen grapes
•A chocolate-covered frozen banana
•Grilled white peaches with blackberries and honey
•Grilled pineapple with rum and pecans
•Frozen, dark, sweet cherries


A crisp and juicy slice of watermelon is not just a great summer weight loss fruit, but it’s very refreshing as well! Also, because half of the watermelon is made from water, it can satisfy your thirst as well!

Low- and No-Calorie Beverages
Smoothies, sodas, sweetened teas, and sweetened specialty coffee drinks are all easy to drink when it’s hot outside, but they can have a surprisingly high calorie count. Keep an eye out for drinks like that since you’ll be drinking a lot during the summer to quench your thirst. Also remember that drinks can help you stay cooler from the heat, but they usually don’t have any affect on your appetite. You can still enjoy refreshing treats and drinks while you maintain your diet during the summer!

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Nancy asks…

What makes up a good weight loss program?

I’m interested in setting up a weight loss program for myself to get in shape for the summer, but I don’t know where to begin.

weight loss cardiff answers:

It’s good to have the following three things when you are preparing to begin a new summer weight loss program:

* To ensure that you can start an exercise program and a nutrition program, it’s recommended to get a check-up from your doctor.

* For your workout schedule it’s a good idea to set aside at least 30 minutes every other day.

* It’s good to have access to workout equipment such as exercise machines and/or free weights.

Cardio work is a great place to begin your new summer weight loss exercise program. Cardio work has a number of benefits. First, it’s great for getting your body warmed up for more strenuous physical activity. Also, it exercises your lungs and heart, and is a great foundation for burning off calories.

After some time you’ll be able to workout more often, and gain more benefit from your exercise sessions. A good goal to work towards is a workout schedule of at least 30 minutes almost every day of the week. It’s not a bad thing to take a break one day during the week.

It’s not a bad idea to start with smaller 15-20 minute exercise sessions if you’re just beginning or in case you haven’t exercised in a long time. You can even space the workout sessions out to every other day and slowly add days of exercise or increase the time of your workout sessions to further develop your summer weight loss exercise program.

Mix your exercises and activities up some, and pick something you really enjoy doing. Try exercising a little shorter one day, but then a longer the next day – keep the workout program a little varied.

You’ll be able to raise your body’s natural metabolism and build more lean muscle mass by integrating a strength training program into your summer weight loss workout routine. Lifting weights at least twice a week in addition to your regular cardio workouts will increase your body’s rate of burning calories.

I’m sure it’s easy to see that good exercise and a proper fitness plan is a vital component to achieving your summer weight loss goals. Another integral part of your plan should be your diet. It’s recommended to adjust your diet as well as your exercise routine to help burn off more calories.

You might find that it’s difficult to stick to a long-term diet and nutrition plan. If that the case, you might have an easier time trying to incorporate small changes to your diet at first, which could be more effective in the long run. It isn’t really necessary to follow a specific nutrition plan, but there are some good guidelines to keep in mind for eating healthy:

* Try to begin keeping track of what you eat. If you start keeping a food journal you might be surprised at how much food you actually consume, and by looking back on your eating habits it might be easier to find places where you can cut calories.

* It’s important that you don’t skip any of your meals. Many people think that they can get ahead start on losing weight by cutting out meals, but this is not the case. There’s a very good chance that it could backfire. In fact, you could actually end up eating more in the long run, not to mention that you could hinder your metabolism and as a result, your body will have a harder time burning calories.

* You can effectively fight off hunger by drinking more water and/or tea. Staying hydrated is a great point to remember – it will also help to prevent fatigue.

* One of the most difficult guidelines to follow is keeping your portion sizes in mind when preparing your meals. If you use smaller dishes, that might make it a little easier.

* You can stay full without a lot of excess calories by eating foods high in fiber as well as fruits and vegetables.

You see that by integrating small changes into your diet and nutrition can be very beneficial to your summer weight loss. As a result, the change to your diet will be easier to follow if it’s less drastic. Don’t substitute foods that you already enjoy – instead, try adding more healthy foods to compliment your diet. Some good suggestions include fruits, salads, and whole grain breads. It’s also a good idea to try eating out less often. You’ll have greater control over your portion sizes by preparing your meals at home. You’ll also be sure of exactly what you’re getting since you choose all the ingredients. It’s usually less expensive to stay at home as well, so you’ll be able to save money on your food budget.

The main thing to remember is that you’re looking for changes to your diet that your can effectively apply and stick to. It might not work very well to select a more complex diet and nutrition program if you don’t have a lot of extra time on your hands. On the other hand, you might find it more enjoyable to prepare more healthy foods for yourself when you have more time available to you.

To sum up, proper nutrition and diet, strength training, and cardiovascular exercise, are all good effective components of a summer weight loss program. Keep in mind that you might actually be better suited to starting small and adding more healthy changes to your lifestyle over time. Following these suggestions and guidelines can help you accomplish your summer weight loss goals!

Steven asks…

How to get the best weight loss Program?

I tried a lot of diets but very little of them used to help. Please give an advice of some good solution/method on the internet to get the best weight loss program.
Thank you.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Exercise. Exercise can boost your results ten-fold, especially if it includes weight training. Not only will weight training help you build lean muscle, which helps burn fat, but it can also help strengthen bones. Be sure to consult a health-care professional before starting any exercise program.

Extra protein. A shake may be sufficient to provide an extra boost for supporting weight loss.

Snack right. We all snack. Just avoid snacking on high-calorie, nutrient-deficient foods. In other words, keep the cake, potato chips and ice cream out of the house. Make “better bad” eating choices. If you’re out at a fast food restaurant and a greasy burger is calling your name, just choose a single-patty with lettuce and tomato and hold the cheese and mayo.

Dietary fiber. Be sure you are receiving sufficient amounts of dietary fiber daily. Fiber helps keep you feeling satisfied longer while also keeping bowel movements regular. I recommend gradually increasing fiber to 25-30 grams daily, in line with current National Fiber Council recommendations.

Weight loss success is often about making better choices.

Avoid sugary drinks. These can add “no nutrition” calories quickly. It’s best to drink plenty of purified water and/or nutrient-dense sugar drink alternatives.

Say no to “bad” fats. The “bad” includes saturated and trans fats. “Good” fats include olive oil rich in oleic acid and fish oil rich in omega-3 fatty acids. To take ultimate advantage of omega-3 fatty acids, it’s best to take a high-potency, high-quality fish oil supplement daily. New research also shows that dietary omega-3 fatty acids may be linked to lower bodyweight.

Mix it up. We all have individual differences. Something that may work for one person may not work for the next. Be sure to try a few different things and see what works best for you.

Whatever you do, it’s important that you don’t become discouraged. Shoot all scales. Pay attention to your body. As you continue to enjoy a reduced-calorie diet, providing your body with quality nutrition, and building muscle through exercise, then the weight will begin to come off safely.

weight loss cardiff answers:

I wish you had posted your present workout plan, but I can give you some tips to get you too the next phase of fitness.

If you can do LISS(low intensity steady state), early morning easy walking, even on a treadmill for 40mins on an empty stomach, you will burn fat, while holding onto your LBM(lean body mass), which is the key for you to burning fat. Always remember, if you do cardio and weights correctly, you will hold onto LBM, so you can burn fat. If you do things like run on a day you lift weights, you will burn up muscle, a no no, so always choose LISS early morning and 20mins after weights. If you want to run, or do run intervals,only run on days you don’t lift weights… again, you hold onto muscle.

For meals, you should be eating 5-6meals per day, protein/carbs/healthy fats(I wonder why you cut out complex carbs?) They are what supports energy building for LBM, along with protein and healthy fats… you boost your metabolism all day. You need to have the proper ratios to support LBM. Eat things like lean steak, grilled chicken breast, tuna, 1-yolk with 2 whites, toast, oatmeal, potatoes, cheerios, olive oil lightly drizzeled over your salad, 4 walnuts, danon light yogurt….with these choices, you can form 5-6 small meals or 2 as snacks easily!

If you can eat properly to support LBM, and ignore the scale weight, you will look terrific! The above are some of the rules and tips I use for my clients for success! With all my clients, they learn that the scale moves slowly or not at all, or sometimes they gain, but that is because their muscle to fat ratio is so high, and muscle weighs more, but they lose inches and feel great, and need to buy new clothes!

I hope this helps! Good luck!

Sandra asks…

What are some good tips for summer weight loss?

I’m hoping to lose weight for next summer, and I’m looking for some good weight loss tips.

weight loss cardiff answers:

After reading a lot of weight loss tips, I’ve caught myself saying “I’m not going to be able to do that!” I’m sure that we all have. A good summer weight loss tip is going to have to be something that you’d actually do, obviously. Keeping that mind, I hope that you’ll find the following weight loss tips helpful to you. Over the years they have helped me maintain my current weight, and they’ve also helped me lose weight as well. These are some of the easiest and most effective weight loss tips I’ve found.

At first, when I started trying to lose weight, I went along with the traditional attitude that eating snacks in-between meals was counter-productive to an effective weight loss program. I cut out snacks from my diet altogether as a result of that belief. I found that the problem was that by the time I sat down to start eating my meal, I was so hungry that I couldn’t control my portion sizes efficiently.

I found that I can keep my blood sugar at a decent level (and keep my appetite satisfied too) by eating more healthy and sensible snacks in between smaller meals. In fact, over the more recent years, research has shown that you can keep your body’s metabolic rate productive and steady by eating smaller meals spaced out throughout the day rather than the traditional “3 square meals” ideology. You can mix your carbs and proteins when selecting your snacks. Low-fat cheese on some wheat crackers and some grapes would be a great example of a healthy snack.

Portion control can be better managed, and if not, it will become a large stumbling block. You can purchase smaller, single serving foods, and use plastic bags to enforce portion sizes. You can always use regular sized foods, but use small plastic bags to separate out smaller portions in case buying single-sized foods turns out to be too much of a strain on your budget. That’s a great weight loss tip, since sometimes eating straight from the original packaging will cause you to eat more than you should.

The calories in the food will count just as much, even if the food is advertised as either low-fat or reduced in fat. Be sure to double-check your serving size by reading the food’s nutrition label. After measuring out the appropriate serving sizes, you can then store them in your plastic bags.

Another one of the greatest weight loss tips is ice water! Place a small bottle of water in your freezer. This is a great idea to keep your water cold, and most weight loss programs recommend drinking water anyway. After some time, the water will form a small block of ice inside the bottle as it begins to freeze. That small block of ice will continue to keep the surrounding water very cold as it melts.

Sometimes it’s boring to just drink plain water. Just for the sake of variety, you can keep low-calorie flavored waters in the refrigerator as well. Request an ice water with extra lemon slices in it when you’re dining out. Then, just add some artificial sweeteners and you’ve made diet lemonade to enjoy!

Most of the time, the regular versions of foods that you’re used to taste a lot better than their reduced fat and low-fat equivalents. However don’t be discouraged, and continue to try the low-fat and non-fat alternatives of your favorite foods. You might be surprised to find a low-fat version of your favorite food, and there’s a chance that you’ll like it more than the original.

You also might want to consider that there could be some places in your home that you associate with eating. You might stop and look for a snack while lingering around the kitchen – instead, leave the kitchen after eating. You might be tempted into eating a dessert if you sit longer at the dinner table after you’ve finished your meal. Instead, as soon as you’re finished eating, try getting up and going for a walk. You’ll enjoy the extra exercise, plus it will help get your mind off of eating, food, and snacks. You might need to change where you do things to stay away from these “problem areas” if you have a hard time fighting the temptation of food.

You can help yourself lose weight by breaking the habit of using food as a comfort and as a stress-reliever. You could listen to music, read a book, go for a walk or jog, or just do some exercise. The point is that each different activity you select can be a viable alternative to eating when you need to relieve stress.

Schedules can become hectic and full very fast. Squeezing weight loss programs in your already busy life can be a very difficult task. Sometimes it can be hard to find the time in one place, but it’s recommended to try and get at least 30 minutes of good physical activity each day. You can try to break your 30 minute block of time into smaller 10 or 15 minute blocks. You’ll be able to get some much needed exercise by spreading the smaller blocks of time throughout your evening and day.

Exercise is cumulative, and keep in mind too that getting more and more physical activity can help you burn off calories
