How can i lose weight without making a dramatic change?

Prom is coming up and for some reason i fell in love with a backless dress and bought it. Now i’m completely freaking out cause i have some back fat that you could see. I want to lose enough weight to get rid of it but the dress is ALREADY getting altered cause it fits a little too big. How can i lose enough weight to lose back fat, but not too much to not be able to wear the dress?

    Youll need to exercise.
    Lose fat. And hopefully will be from your upper body soon.
    Also do some back exercises.

    do crunches, cut out soda (if you drink it a lot), run everyday from now until prom, incorporate veggies and fruits in to your diet.

    Weight Watchers is the best way I know to lose weight regardless whether it is a little or a lot.

    You might try doing some exercises for strengthening your back area.
    You could use either weights or resistant bands for this. You will be
    amazed at how quickly your excess disappears! Good luck!

    Quick weight loss is really hard to do, exercise and really watch what you eat, highschool is pretty far behind me but I believe Prom is usually in May(?) which really gives you no time! I would eat plenty of fruits and veggies, decrease your sodium intake and drink plenty of water!

    The key to losing body fat is to eat 5-6 small meals per day, perform cardiovascular exercise for a minimum of 30 min five days per week and lift weight for at least 2 days per week. The hardest element is the diet. Here’s an example of a healthy “fat burning” diet:
    Breakfast – 1 serving of oatmeal with 6-8 raw, unsalted almonds or one apple sliced with 1 whole egg & 2 egg whites.
    Lunch: 3-4 oz of lean chicken, turkey pork or fish with 1 serving of brown rice or sweet potatoes and a side of mixed veggies would be good.
    Dinner – would be the same type of food combinations as lunch.
    There are many other great foods and on-the-go snacks. Without taking too much space here, send me e-mail and I would be more then happy to guide you in the right direction. Also join my blog for up-to-date fitness, nutrition and health topics.

    The first thing that you want to do is to change your house. You will want to go through your entire kitchen and stock it with only healthy food options. Get rid of that junk food and rep-lace it with healthy foods and snacks. It also helps to have simple and healthy snacks within easy reach, this way you will be able to grab a healthy snack when you want to cheat and help to curve that cheating urge. Make sure you get yourself some workout things in your home such as a workout DVD and an exercise ball. The more exercise friendly things that you have in your home the more chances that you will decide to use them.

    Your best option is to do a good exercise program… Jogging (or power walking), swimming, and something like Pilates to burn fat and tone up the whole body.

    Weight loss is an overall process and there are no magic answers. Pay no attention to weight loss supplements and pills and all the latest fads. You need to think about many factors but most of them are related to issues we’ve known about for a very long time. There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me.

    Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why.

    Make a few additional small changes – walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars.

    Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can’t get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one.

    In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.

    Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate – in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don’t. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies.

    Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day.

    Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day.

    Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body.

    Vary your routines. Don’t eat the same number of calories every day (vary your calories from 1400 a day to 1900 or 2000 some days), eat a variety of foods, and do different kinds and amounts of exercise. You will lose weight much more efficiently if you mix things up from time to time so that your body doesn’t adjust to any one routine.

    An area that many people overlook is getting enough sleep. You are much more likely to overeat or to binge eat if you are tired and not well rested, so get enough sleep.

    Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc. Here are a few helpful links.

    Have you ever heard about “Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet”? Reading about it makes you wonder if they might not be on to something. The way the diet works is different than other fad diets that involve cutting out certain types of food like low carbohydrates, low fat or low calorie. Instead it uses calorie shifting foods that you would normally eat, increases the number of times you eat, and changes when you eat certain things for fast fat loss.

    What is Calorie Shifting?

    The way calorie shifting works involves tricking the fat hormones that are sent out by the brain. Every time you eat something, your brain sends out fat storing and fat burning hormones, depending on what the item is.

    The idea is to send more fat burning than fat storing hormones, so that the body does not hold onto the fat for later use. If you keep confusing the metabolism, you will see fast fat loss, as much as 9 pounds in 11 days, that is the first weightloss principle of Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet.

    How Does The Metabolism Control Weightloss?

    This scientific weight control fact about the metabolism and how it works stems from our ancestry as cavemen, when there were famine periods between hunts. The body would store and hold onto fat for survival. The metabolism has not evolved from this self-defense tactic and doesn’t realize we can just run to the grocery store and get whatever we want.

    On restrictive diets, weightloss can plateau when the metabolism thinks it is experiencing a famine period, and it will only burn what is taken in. Even on some of the popular low carbohydrate diets, it is advised to eat pizza for two days when your weight plateaus to get the metabolism going.

    Why Do Some Weightloss Diets Leave You With No Energy?

    The only problem with many of these restrictive weightloss diets is the metabolism goes back to only burning what you take in and many people complain about being tired and worn down, when it is mainly the metabolism storing up the energy for later.

    By eating healthy, nutritious foods that are fat burning, the metabolism burns as much energy as you need. Many people on restrictive weightloss diets will regain the weight when they go back to eating normal foods.

    What Is The Best Diet For Weightloss?

    The best weight control diet allows you to eat the foods that you would normally eat, have in your refrigerator and cabinets. By timing when you eat certain foods, how many times a day you eat them, and balancing the types of food, your metabolism will burn what you take in and then some, because it knows you will be feeding it again shortly, instead of starving.

    Prepackaged fat loss products and frozen dinners are not something you can live on the rest of your live. You need to understand the basics of natural weight control, and Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet uses the fundamental principles of controlling the metabolism with calorie shifting normal foods you eat every day.

    Check my source, it might help. It’s a diet that works. Good luck!

    I have been through it all and know what’s it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can’t be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I’ve worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

    First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can’t eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising…

    This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it’s good for the heart.

    However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It’s so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I’ve found a great addition to help any one out, it’s a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don’t get all crazy on me and say diet pills don’t work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn’t meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It’s an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace dot com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it’s the best pill I’ve tried and I’ve tried cupboards full. Now this doesn’t mean you have to follow my foot steps but I’ve successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

    Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

    Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.
