    Listen to your body. If you have pain the next day, you did too much. You should feel pain and discomfort ONLY during the exercise.

    Do stretching every day and aerobics every day.
    The Step is a good low impact aerobic exercise.

    Once a week, lift and HOLD something heavy for 60 seconds. Such as two pails fo water. Bend over, knees bent, elbows bent, while lifting and holding. Tightens up everything.

    Any more questions, write and ask!

    between 1,500 and 2,000 and you have to make sure the amount covers a well balanced meal as well, to avoid any complications…….good luck!!

    Count your regular maintenance calorie intake a day. Then lower it by 500. Because your 250, no offense id suggest you lower it about 700 calories a day. You’ll lose alot faster. Once you get to a healthier weight the weight is harder to drop.

    Take your time, youve got a lot of work ahead of you.

    Hope this helps.

    Try the Atkins diet (buy the book, it helps), it worked wonders for me. The catch is to stick to it and don’t backslide. People scream about the high fat but I just ate lean chicken and fish and stayed away from the salty hams and fatty beefs and pork. Eat good salads too and drink a gallon of water a day. Take a multivitamin and start walking, stretching and riding a bike as well as swimming. Join a health club, the ritual helps alot. As far as calories if you choose that route, comsume no more than 1800 daily.

    Nourish your body thin, instead of starving your body fat. Good carbs like celery and carrots will never make you fat. Bad carbs like cake will, but you don’t need to know the whole science of glycemic load. You need to re-learn how to eat so you can become thin and healthy. Salt has no calories but makes you fat and burning more calories does not help this fatness.

    Find out about fastest way to lose weight, most effective exercise, good and bad fats, water retention and secret trick used by models to flatten their tummy before an event. Reading a book will take you hours but the information on a post, taking minutes to read, is not enough. The webpage below has just enough to know what you need to know. Links page has gov. BMI calculator to find out just how much overweight you are (teens plug in your age to compare to others your age).

    You can force your body to lose weight with not enough calories, but if you continue it, you will starve to death. With an abundance of healthy foods, you lose weight just as fast, but only until you reach your ideal weight. You can continue eating this way the rest of your life and always be at your ideal weight.

So to lose weight, eat healthier food, and eat only when your hungry not when you want to eat. You can even go to the gym and exercise and lose weight. There are a lot of ways to lose weight without hurting yourself.

    Losing weight is a simple equation: if you burn more calories than you eat, the weight will come off. Start off by estimating how many calories you burn each day using the calorie calculator This will give you an idea of how many calories to eat. Healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week. To lose 1 pound per week you need to create a calorie deficit (burn more than you eat) of 500 calories per day. To lose 2 pounds a week, you have to double the deficit to 1000 calories per day. You can achieve this by eating less, exercising more or a combination of both.

    well, first of all, you need to know ur BMI by calculating ur height and weight. there are percentages of fat for women depends on how many u have on ur body right now then by that you would know whether u are in a category of average, over weight, or obese. Reading books from Library is a good thing to get ur self a start but if you did not put ur self in an action those books become nothing. I don’t know how tall u are, so I can not tell u specifically how to help u to lose weights. However, I am just gonna give u a general ideas how to lose weight without hurting ur self. Eat 5 small amounts of food. Exercise at least 45-60 minutes everyday. You might want to work on the cardio first such as running, jogging, and riding a bike. I am pretty sure in your case, you should start ur self with lots and lots of cardio work out. I know it’s gonna be boring that’s why you need to suck it up if you wanted to lose weight. It’s hard but it’s worthed at the end, trust me. So, don’t do all those diets bullshit because human body is not created to be hungry every time. Food is good to help u supplying enough energy for ur work out. You just have to be smart in chosing what kinda food you want to eat. Stay away from fast food and pops. Sometimes ur body will crave it but u need to ignore it after that phase, you would feel much better. 😛 Calories intake per day depends on how active u are. Like a basketball player in season she/he needs at least 2000 cal/day because she would keep practising and going to games. BUt for normal people, if you did not exercise at all, I would think not more than 1200 cal/day. If you can not take eating too little then you need to exercise to burn those extra calories. Bottom line, if u are not active in sport eat less than 1200 cal/day but if ur active u can eat more than 1800 cal/day and if ur an athlete you need to have at least 2000 cal/day depends on what sport u play.
