What a healthy amount of weight to lose in a week or month?

I’m a 22 year old female and want to lose weight over the course of this year. I intend on improving my eating habits as well as do daily cardio. I will be be keeping track of my daily calorie intake as well as tracking my weight every week. I don’t want to over work my body, don’t want to lose too much weight in such a short time, nor not push myself hard enough to burn the fat. What is considered a healthy amount of weight to lose a week or in a month?

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you go extreme id say 15 pounds in a month. But if your just doing a normal cut then probly 5-8 pounds in a month. Eat a -500 calorie deficit every day from your normal calorie intake

Richard asks…

How much weight will i lose a week if i eat 900-1000 calories?

I weigh 135 and im 16 5’4″ and i exercise 2 hours( ballet) 5 times a weeks. How much weight will i lose in a week? Please don’t tell me that im not fat, i feel like i need to lose weight, and es i have posted this question numerous time, i would like a lot of different opinions. Thanks!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Like what the others have already said 900-1000 calories is VERY low. Also 1 week is not a lot of time and much of what you lose will be water weight.

But if you really need to know, according to the calculator below you will lose around 3 pounds

John asks…

Do you lose less weight in the 4th week of dieting?

I’ve been doing Weight Watchers for four weeks. I lost a lot less weight this week, but did nothing different in my dieting.

I heard this happens in the 4th week. Is this true? Will I go back to losing more next week?


weight loss cardiff answers:

1. First start by getting up earlier than usual. Around 5:30 AM to do some of you workouts. Getting up early shocks your metabolism because the body needs more energy to get going. Right? This will start your system on the road to weight loss. That early start with about 10 minutes of stretching. Have a cup of coffee to get the blood going also.

2. Do all the sit-ups you can. Just do them. 15 or 20 whatever, we don’t have a lot of time to work with. Rest 1 minute repeat, do this for 6 sets. Already you are breathing hard and feel worn, because the body is working extra hard at being up earlier and then going right into exercise. If the early morning hour lets you get your cardio in, go ahead and do it. 30 minutes.

3. Diet. Cut all current meal portions in half, just cut them in half, nothing fancy or complicated, CUT IN HALF! Cut out all bread products, all gravies, candies, chips, night snacks, etc. If you crave at night eat a banana, other fruit or best a non-fat yogurt. There are some tasty ones out there.

4. In the evening do another 6 sets of sit-ups maxing out each set. Cardio again. The trick is to stay with getting up earlier. Yes it’s hard, that’s why it is so effective. Why do you think the Army gets up so early, it is intense training to the max.

Your Questions About Weight Loss

Ken asks…

Are weight loss supplements dangerous or do they work?

I am doing some weight training for the first time. I love working out and want the best possible results. I’m seeking to become a personal trainer, do some excersise videos, and be in a few fitness magazines. Do weight loss supplements, such as hydroxycut or slimquik, really work? Are they dangerous for your body? How do they work?

Thank you kindly for answering. I appreciate you all.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Theyre ripoffs… And they arent healthy for you..if you read fine print they tell you to eat right and exercise so that tells you that they dont work.. So its better just to do it the old fashioned way, eat right and exercise!

James asks…

What are good vitamins or supplements to take to aid in weight-loss?

I am 22, 5-11 and 230 pounds. I have started running to lose weight but I have only seen weight gain. I know I am building muscles and weight will increase, but I still feel that I am not losing the weight I could be losing. I am taking vitamin B but I was wondering if there were any other good weight loss supplements to take?

weight loss cardiff answers:

There are no vitamins or supplements that will help you lose weight. If you keep to a well balanced healthy diet then you will take in everything you need on those lines.

Count the calories, spread out the meals to keep your appetite in control drink enough water and exercise. Doing this will lose you weight.

There are plenty of places to find out recommended calorie needs etc.

Avoid extreme diet like Atkins. These do leave you short of essentials. And moreover they are often boring and therefore hard to stick to.

Jenny asks…

Is it bad to take energy weight loss supplements before working out to boost stamina?

I recently discovered that when I take energy weight loss supplements before a work-out that I am able to work-out longer without getting tired as quickly as I would without taking them. I tend to work-out in the evenings starting out with running. (The supplement I am taking is the Quick Trim the ISO-BURN AM.)

weight loss cardiff answers:

Yes, it is bad and you should not take any weight loss supplements before you work out (or ever for that matter) because they contain ingredients that get rid of your fat (Good and bad fat), which you need to burn in order to gain muscle. If you have no fat to burn, your body starts to burn the muscle instead and you will diminish your muscles as well as your fat, which is very unhealthy. Also, the diet supplement will get rid of key vitamins in your body when it gets rid of the fat, leaving you with less vitamins such as omega 3, iron, and calcium, which works against you when you exercise and destroys the inside of your body. Do yourself a favor, and don’t use the weight loss supplement.
PS. 75% of people who use weight loss supplements gain back their lost weight and usually gain even more weight.

Mary asks…

Are weight loss supplements harmful to teens or children going through puberty?

I’m not asking on advice to lose weight, I just want to know specifically if weight loss supplements might be any more harmful for teens than for adults.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Of course yes, kids and children should avoid the supplements. They should take only the natural diets only. They should do some exercises, that’s enough for teens and children.

Susan asks…

Does anyone know of any particularly good weight loss supplements?

Does anyone know of any particularly good weight loss supplements?
I’m looking for something to help curb my appetite (not to replace a meal, just curb the hunger between meals) and boost my energy, but not make me jittery.

I’m just looking for a good supplement that is legal, helpful and over the counter.

I’m not trying to lose massive amounts of weight but I feel like I need a little boost to go with my better eating habits and exercise.
I think I will try the whole chocolate thing!

Ken asks…

How can I lose weight quickly and easily?

I’m only 15 so I can’t go on any extreme diets.
It also means that I can’t afford to buy all these wierd ingredients to put in my meals or spend money on the gym every week.
I want to lose weight quickly and easily. Whats the best possible way to do this?

weight loss cardiff answers:

VYou need to do cardio! When I say that you have to work hard and get your heart rate up. So many people say they do cardio but they walk or job leisurely on the treadmill or elliptical. Running is the best way to shred excess fat (make sure you have good knees). It’s not about losing 2 or 3 pounds here and there because it is very easy to gain it back. You have to change the complexion of how your body functions. Consistency is the key. The more you workout your metabolism will burn fat at a higher rate. Eventually you want your body to work for you, not work for your body (if that makes sense). And if you want to lift and workout I recommend doing high intensity circuit workouts where you are doing an exercise one after another, to again, get your heart rate up and increase your fitness level (not be one of the those people we do a set, rest for 2-3 minutes and do another one). There is too much down time, that’s good for increasing strength but not overall fitness. Diet is just as important as working out!

Donna asks…

How can i lose weight quickly and easily?

Im going to the prom in about 6 weeks but i want to look my best and i was wondering if you had any tips on how to lose weight quickly and easily while keeping in with a holiday and my GCSE’s.

weight loss cardiff answers:

I do not know if you are over weighted or not.

Try the following according to your present weight.

1) Nutrition:
Avoid or reduce fatty foods and sugar intake (watch your drinks there is a lot of sugar in many of them. Avoid or reduce alcohol intake. Avoid or reduce white bread, white rice, & pastry.
Have: fruit, veggies (by the ton), lean meat, fish, whole grain products, etc. And 2 liters of water a day.

2) Do cardio two times a week for 30 minutes.
Whatever you can do and like to do; walk, jog, cycle, swim, dance, etc. Just make sure you keep your heart rate up for 30 minutes twice a week.

3) Toning.
Get firm muscles, they will burn the fat in your body. Work them out twice a week.
From light weight to any other form of resistence exercise you can do and like: crunces, squats, push ups, sit ups, etc.
You need to feel taht your muscles have worked, taht they are tired, but not exhausted or in pain.

Jenny asks…

How can I lose weight quickly, easily and healthily?

I really want to get down to a healthy size that I am happy with!

weight loss cardiff answers:

I’d say walk/jog/run 3 miles every morning (3 miles isn’t a lot at all) Do plenty of sit ups before you go to bed, eat special “K” for breakfast and lunch, eat small meals a day not big ones. Try cutting down on carb for example, breads, noodles, and rice.

Maria asks…

How can a thirteen year-old lose weight quickly and easily?

Hi. I’m a thirteen year-old overweight kid. I have tried to lose weight before, but it is very difficult for me. I love food. I can’t resist the urges. Can you please tell me an easy way for me to lose weight and keep it off?

weight loss cardiff answers:

When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
you don’t eat wheat then you don’t eat all those sticky, fatty goey
cakes, you don’t eat junk food, and you don’t eat biscuits. But your
diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
your problem areas for men and women. It’s not necessarily to become a
bodybuilder or even join a gym – a couple of dumbbells will help you
to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

Easy Weight loss tips for a teen.?

I’m 15 years old (16 in 2 months) and I plan on losing weight this summer. I plan on starting this April and I want to lose up to 25-30 pounds or more by time school starts again in August. I am 5′ 6″ and 145 pounds. Do you think I could accomplish this and do you have an quick and easy tips to help me?
Yes my jean size is usually 7 sometimes 9 for skinny jeans

weight loss cardiff answers:

Instead of driving to work I walk there. It takes me 20 minutes each day. If you can’t do that, maybe you use lifts?
Then get off one floor earlier and walk the last bit.,.. It is only a few steps but doing them over and over will make you that extra bit fitter and then maybe you might want to get off two floor earlier.
You can also start drinking water only. These are all small steps but they work, the main point is sticking to these steps and adding more and more until you will be just fit.

Paul asks…

easy weight loss tips?

okay, im fourteen. i weigh 143 pounds. i want to have a flat stomach and look good by july.
i am a blackbelt in taekwondo; been taking for three years now. i also workout extra once or twice a week. so im very active. i do have a lot of muscle, but its mainly in my legs. they have like, NO fat. the problems are my arms and my stomach. theyre both tone; you can feel the muscles in them. but theyre still very flabby. i need easy weight loss tips that are easy to stick to. dont tell me im fine for my age, this is something i want to do, but whatever im doing isnt exactly working. any tips are welcome! thanks!

weight loss cardiff answers:

Heh, I’m a black belt too. Perhaps your legs are really muscular from kicking the bag. You probably don’t punch the bags as much, and that’s why you are flabby in your arms and stomach.

You need to lift weights, do push-ups, pull-ups, play a sport with a ball, anything with weight resistance. I did TKD and gained weight. I was very fit before, but I don’t know, something about the sport/art does not tone your body well.

Betty asks…

Easy weight loss tips?

I am 5″4 and 105 pounds, but I’m not very old. I have recently been gaining weight, and I want it to stop. I have always been self concious, but this is making me even worse. I know that I’m thin but I feel like I’m just not as thin as I used to be. Does anyone have any weight loss tips so that I can shed the 5 or so pounds I’ve gained recently. And please don’t say it’s just puberty.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Hi, I can tell you about a brand new weight loss / hunger management , portion control capsule called FORM

Portion control is a very important part of weight loss. Many of us over eat and consume more calories than we are able to burn off.

FORM helps with this, you take it 30 minutes before a meal with water.
It swells up in your stomach so you eat less and feel full faster. You even feel full between meals and that helps eliminate compulsive snacking. FORM has no side effects and is drug and stimulant free. It works 100% of the time.
