How do i loose 5 pounds quickly without much exercize?

I am about 5’7″, weighing approximatly 110 pounds. I have never been overweight, and have always been the “skinny girl” but have noticed some recent weight gain. Some of it may be from stress acquired over the year, but I would really like to re-achieve my flat stomach, as summer has arrived. How do I do this quickly? I have been a vegetarian for several months, and have recently decided to experiment with being vegan. Also, is fasting a good way to achieve weight loss?

    fasting isnt good for you first of all. Are you drinking lots of sodas or soft drinks because that can contribute. Stess can also cause weight gain.

    To begin with, don’t fast to achieve weight loss. The body will go into “starvation mode” and you may actually GAIN weight because your body is fighting to keep itself healthy.

    I would suggest drinking a lot of water, counting your calories (between 1300 and 1500 a day), controlling your portion/serving sizes, and purchasing foods that are low-fat, low-calorie, and high in protein and fiber. You will feel fuller for longer if you eat foods with protein and fiber.

    Also remember that only 1-2 pounds of weight loss per week is the healthiest way to do it – don’t try to overexert yourself or you may end up getting sick.

    Good luck!

    At 5’7″ & 110 lbs. you’re thin Honey.

    As you get older you’ll gradually put some weight on……It’s a natural occurrence, and it’s healthy to fill out a little.

    Listen to ‘beesting’ you are putting on weight because your body needs it.

    1. Change your eating habits (i.e. start eating smaller portions of food) before if you ate a full plate of food try eating 2/3 of a plate instead.
    o Substitute aspartame for sugar
    o Try eating 3 or 4 smaller meals during the day rather than 2 large ones
    o Eat your main large meal at midday with the other meals much smaller in content
    o Don’t eat heavy meals late in the evening as the body wont have time to digest it so it ends up stored as fat in your body.
    o Balance your meals out during the day so in one day you have a mix of protein, carbohydrate and vitamins
    o Drink lots of water during the day and before, during and after exercise, you should drink at least 8 big glasses of water per 24 hours
    o Drink alcohol in moderation
    o Stop smoking if you smoke or cut down
    o Eat more fibre i.e. pulses grains nuts, pasta, brown rice, cereals, fresh fruit
    o Eat more vegetables as part of your diet
    o Eat less dairy products or choose those with less fat content i.e. cottage cheese
    o Try steaming or poaching food instead of frying it, frying adds calories by the bucketful
    o Cut down on Red meat and eat more lean or better still chicken and fish instead
    o Use low fat oils in cooking i.e. sunflower, corn or Mazola
    o Cut down on your salt intake, there are hidden salts even in tinned foods
    o Try substituting carrots or fresh fruit instead of biscuits and sweetmeat when you have a craving for something in between meals.
    o Drink semi or skimmed milk as opposed to full cream
    Simply choose a diet which is low in fat and cholesterol, moderate in sugar and salt and high in fibre but at the same time has a variety of everything thus making it a balanced diet.

    Calculate your BMR!!!!
    BMR means Basal Metabolic Rate.It is used to estimate how many calories you should consume.By using a simple formula called the Harris-Benedict principle, you can assess your BMR.
    Your BMR is the amount of energy your body needs to function.Then, to lose weight, you’ll need to cut calories or burn extra calories and shoot for a level lower than the results you get with this formula.
    We use about 60 percent of the calories we consume each day for basic bodily functions such as breathing.Other factors that influence your BMR are height, weight, age and sex.
    Step One : Calculate your BMR with the following formula:
    •Women: BMR = 655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) – (4.7 x age in years)
    •Men: BMR = 66 + (6.23 x weight in pounds) + (12.7 x height in inches) – (6.8 x age in years)
    Step two : In order to incorporate activity into your daily caloric needs, do the following calculation:
    •If you are sedentary : BMR x 1.2
    •If you are lightly active: BMR x 1.375
    •If you are moderately active (You exercise most days a week.): BMR x 1.55
    •If you are very active (You exercise daily.): BMR x 1.725
    •If you are extra active (You do hard labor or are in athletic training.): BMR x 1.9
    Create a Calorie Deficit:
    In order to lose weight, you must create a calorie deficit. It is easier and healthier to cut back your calorie intake a little bit at a time.
    Every 3,500 calories is equivalent to 1 pound.
    If you cut back 500 calories a day, you will lose 1 pound per week.
    If you exercise to burn off 500 calories a day you will also lose 1 pound per week.
    Ideally, you should do a combination of both, (e.g. cut back 250 calories; burn an extra 250 calories).
