    I can’t suggest any exercise as you don’t go out, but what I can suggest is this that eat more and more fruits and even try replacing them your ordinary meals. They will not increase your weight further rather they will stabilize and decrease it.

    All depends not on your physical will but on mental will. You have to be tough mentally to be slim. That is the thumb rule.

    Buy a pilates dvd for toning and muscle strength and invest in a Cross trainer or stationary bike for your cardio.
    If you are at home all day you should stock your fridge and cupboards with low fat snacks. Boredom is your biggest enemy when it comes to losing weight…and the fridge is too close!!

    Its all about calories. If you want to lose weight fast then you have to burn more calories than you are taking in. Being sedentary will not help. Be active while eating low calorie foods. Balanced diet with lots of fiber. Do not starve yourself. Always portion your food intake. Big serving in the morning then taper it until evening. Doing stationary bike is good but keep the intensity up. Walking and running are good alternatives. Jump rope and sometimes, the occassional WII dance is helpful. Always stay focused and always be safe.

    Hi you! (:

    Determine your daily calorie intake. Exercise alone won’t make you lose weight if you’re still taking in more calories than you burn. However emm, eating less and exercising more will only decrease your resting metabolic rate, which accounts for roughly 60-80 percent of daily calorie expenditure. Therefore you should exercise harder and eat more protein dense, clean foods; making your calories burned not too far off from your calories taken in will raise your metabolism and allow you to burn fat effortlessly. Thus, losing the weight at a healthy rate.

    Write down all the things you eat on a typical day. Carry a small notebook with you and write down every snack, every drink, and the contents of every meal. There are also calorie tracking websites that can help you to do this, for example the US government website, My Pyramid Tracker.
    Do an itemized calorie count. When possible, write down the number of calories in each thing you eat as you eat it. Keep in mind that the recommended serving size is often considerably smaller than the serving you actually eat. Look up the calorie count on the internet for foods that don’t have calories listed on the container or for fast food meals. You don’t have to be 100% accurate, but you do want a good estimate of the number of calories you’re taking in. Reducing 500 calories per day from the calories you eat to maintain your weight can help you lose a pound of fat per week.

    Go over the list and decide which foods to cut out or reduce. Look at the nutritional information for the foods you eat, pay special attention to your intake of saturated fats and empty calories (high-sugar foods). You don’t need to cut these things out entirely, but if you reduce your intake of high-fat, high-calorie foods you’ll lose weight faster.

    Drink water instead of soda, for example, or use mustard instead of mayo.

    Choose lean meats. Chicken and fish are both very low in fat (and certain fish like salmon, sardines, and fresh tuna are an excellent source of antioxidants, which are also beneficial to your health), so aim to replace some or all of the beef or pork in your diet with these foods.

    Watch your portion sizes. Opening a bag of rice cakes and eating all of them in one sitting isn’t going to help you lose weight. When eating chips, nuts, or dried fruit put a portion in a small bowl and then put the bag away. That way you won’t mindlessly eat a larger portion than you had intended. Even if you only make minimal changes to your diet choices, reducing portion size will inevitably reduce caloric intake. A great way to watch portion sizes while snacking is to buy one serving 100 calorie packages – and they come in many favorite snack food items!

    Drink plenty of water. Adequate water is essential for health, and a great many people simply don’t get enough. What’s more, if you’re chronically dehydrated, your body will retain water in unflattering places, so if you make sure to get plenty of fluids you can start visibly trimming down in as little as a day. Remember, the more you exercise, the more water you’ll need.

    Exercise. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Remember, you can lose weight either by decreasing your calorie intake or increasing the number of calories you burn. Any health strategy should include both, but if you want to lose weight fast, exercise is essential.

    Perform high-level aerobic activities. Moderate aerobic workouts incorporating jogging, brisk walking, cycling, aerobic machines, or classes not only burn calories — they also keep your heart healthy. Swimming is also great, especially if you are quite overweight or have joint problems, because you can get the same benefits of running — typically burning even more calories — with much less stress on your joints. Try to get at least 30-40 minutes of aerobic exercise at least three or four days per week.

    Rest properly. Taking 1 or 2 days off exercising each week. it also means getting enough sleep at night, since sleep deficiency impairs your ability to lose fat.

    Be confident.

    You need to believe in yourself! If you want to diet, and you know that it will make you feel better, then you need confidence. Otherwise, the temptation to cheat on your diet will make it harder, and you will not feel better when you do lose weight. Avoid temptations like chocolate, ice cream, and cookies.. You need to always encourage yourself to achieve the goals that you have set. Learn to evaluate your efforts fairly and objectively. If you fail to achieve your target for the week, find out why is it so. Is it because you have missed a jogging session? Or you have been eating junk food for one of the days? After evaluating, look ahead to next week and try your best to stick to your plan.

    Be consistent and disciplined, and have self motivation. To lose weight effectively, you need to stick to your weight loss plan religiously so as to see results. When you have the thought of giving up, visualize how good you will look when you manage to slim down successfully.

    All the best okay, I know you can do it, if you try your best! Have a great day ahead!

    You can eat a balanced meal three times a day. Drink 64 oz of water and do the bike for 30 min a day, that’s all. You can spend your time during the day planning your meals. My clients usually don’t have time for that, so I plan meals for them. They lose 2 to 3 lbs per week on a balanced diet with light cardio.

    “Lose weight and tone up in 3-4 weeks”, eh…? We all know why that is, don’t we…? Because that’s when you go back to *SCHOOL*!

    I DO NOT give dieting advice to kids as I do not wish to be responsible for another ending up in an ED clinic. If you believe yourself to be overweight, then you go to your GP (doctor) and have them refer you to a dietician specialising in helping over weight and obese teens lose weight healthily and safely.

    If I wanna scale down a cuppah punds I eat cabbage soup and nuffink else for a week: skimmed chicken stock, a whole green cabbage, bit of garlic, carrot, parsley, no salt, peppa, herbs. I make 5ltrs. and have it for lunch, dinnah, suppah. No nuffink else, no puds, pods, carbs no nuffink. It’s tasty and filling and a guaranteed wait loss within a week. They use this diet in hospital for patients who have to undergo heart surgery and are a bit on the fatty side up. Occasionally I have some cottage cheese with marmite and Tabasco for breakfast. It’s so hot here can’t be bovvered to rite proper English. Apologises given and acccepted.

    Shrinking Violet: should we distill from what you write, that your advice is irresponsible?

    That’s a lot of weight in a short space of time! You would have to lose 5lbs a week to lose 20lbs in 4weeks (let alone 30lbs in 3weeks).
    1lb= 3500calories. So to reach this you would have to burn a whopping 2500calories a day! A healthy weight loss is about 1-2lbs a week (- 500 to 1000 cals a day)

    Use this website to find your resting metabolic weight (ie. how many calories you burn in a day by doing nothing) http://www.shapeup.org/interactive/rmr1.php

    Use this website to find calories burnt for specific exercises depending on your weight
    http://www.shapeup.org/interactive/rmr1.php

    By doing a few calculations you can see that even if you ate nothing (which I really don’t advise!) then you would have to do quite a few hours of cycling every day to reach your goal.

    Sure weight loss is achievable by eating healthily & exercising but drastic short-term plans like yours dont work & could damage your health.
    Slow it down!
