How do I lose weight without using diet pills?

I really need to lose a few pounds and tone my body. Since I retired from running track full time, due to my college schedule, I noticed that my frame is fuller, and I feel heavier. I seem to gain most weight in my midsection, waist, and butt. I really don’t want to use diet pills because I don’t entirely trust them. What type of diet should I be on, and what types of workouts could be suggested? thanks for any suggestions!

    Slim in 6 by Beachbody is a great work out. It also comes with a diet.

    The diet everyone should use, don’t find some gimmick plan like atkins or whatever they advertise, use common sense (maybe not common @[email protected]). Eat lots of vegetables, some people think they’re nasty (or flavorless) but they are high in fiber (fill you up, good for your digestive system) and have virtually no calories. Drink only water or 0 calorie drinks (preferably water, 0 calorie soda’s freak me out) and don’t eat junk food. You should start to lose weight and see an improvement.

    You lose weight by simply using more calories a day than you consume. That’s all the science there is to it. So always keep that in mind.

    Try squats, crunches, and run and put as much exercise into your schedule as you can – when you go to the store, park far away from the front doors so you can add as much walking and movement into your day as possible. Vitamin D is what I use to maintain a healthy weight and doctors do say that it helps you lose weight! Just eat healthier, and since you want to tone your body…eat lots of protein – peanut butter and what not. Try celery dipped in peanut butter, it’s healthy, yet it has the right amount of protein! Hope I helped!:)))

    I’m glad you’ve decided not to use diet pills, because they’re not a healthy and safe way to lose weight.

    The most effective and safe way lose weight is to follow a personalized nutrition and exercise program based on your body type and metabolism. No one type of nutrition and exercise program works best for everyone, so you need to determine what type of nutrition and exercise program works best for you.

    Here’s some information you might want to check out about an excellent resource that shows you how to create a personalized weight loss nutrition and exercise program:

    Don’t go on a diet .

    You should try dancing , whether you’re in your room by yourself or with a whole bunch of people in a class. It’s really good exercise . Move and shake your hips a lot . It’s also a lot of fun !

    You could also do squats (I do 50 per day) , lunges, crunches or sit ups (but I think crunches hurt more and are more effective) and leg kicks as well (I do 30 each leg each day).

    Or you could go for a 30 minute run a couple times a week or whenever you can.

    Hope I helped ! 😀

    A food diary helps you recognise this ‘trigger’ or ‘non-hungry’ eating, which in turn places you in a better position to deal with it. For example, make a conscious choice to eat (or not to eat – see below) a food. Or plan ways to avoid triggers in the first place, for example, keep ‘binge’ foods out of the house or join an evening class to keep you away from the TV, crisps and wine bottle!

    Eat regular meals
    Regular meals, starting with breakfast, help you to regulate how much you eat by stabilising blood sugar levels and allowing you to recognise natural feelings of hunger and fullness. They also stop you worrying about hunger as you will know your next meal or snack is not far away! And a healthy breakfast, is not only linked to long term weight control success, but a healthier, more nutritious diet overall.

    Get some support
    It could be from a friend, partner, colleague at work, self-help group, health professional, health club, slimming group, book, tape or video, diet ‘buddy’ or chat room. Have a good chat with your supporters about how they can best help you. Getting the right support is a vital part of long term slimming success.

    Reward yourself
    If you have set yourself some specific goals, for example, to have regular meals, or lose 3lbs in 2 weeks or eat your 5 a day, reward yourself when you have achieved it for example, with a new CD, seeing a movie, a new hairstyle, or outfit. It will also help to plan a big reward for when you have achieved your longer term weight goal. You will definitely deserve it.

    To refuel during and after exercise, add 5-10 grams of a special sugar called D-Ribose to your drinking water. It has a zero glycemic index (actually less than zero — it lowers sugar), increased energy an average of 45% in a study I recently published, and prevents post exercise soreness.

    Little Tricks To Help You Lose Weight Fast

    Yeah we all know that we are supposed to cut calories, do cardio and hit the gym to get in shape, but there are lots of little tricks you shouldn’t ignore if you want to slim down quick.

    Take The Stairs Taking the stairs instead of the elevator every day can help you burn some extra calories. It may not seem like a lot but it adds up. Over a period of a year, taking the stairs can burn off an extra five lbs. of fat.

    Hi there,

    I think you might be getting a little mixed up with what you want exactly. You say that you want to lose “weight” but that means you might want to get rid of some muscle too. You then say that you’d like to “shape” (I’d call it tone) your body a little which implies you want to build some muscle. I’m not trying to pick at your question – I just want to clarify the point for you.

    To answer it in the best way, I am going to look at it as if you want to get rid of fat AND build muscle at the same time. If you’re looking to “trim” and “tone” your body, and espectially because you suggest you are not that overweight, I would suggest you start performing more intensive aerobic exercises such as jogging. I wouldn’t think you need to change the whole way you eat or go on a diet because if you’re wanting to build muscles – it’s better to do it all with exercise.

    Exercises like jogging won’t exactly “build” your muscles on your stomach but they will help reduce the extra fat around there. Depending on how fit you are, you should go on daily or bi-daily jogs of around a mile. To build muscles, you should concentrate on anaerobic exercises such as sit-ups to help build muscles.

    These muscle-building exercises will give your muscles the toning and training they need to grow and become more prominent. To start to see a real difference with sit-ups, you should be looking to do no more than 100 every day (more than that will often hurt your muscles).

    If you stick to doing those two forms of exercise – jogging and sit-ups, you should see real improvements in a week or two. Remember, you should do them as often as you can (I.E every single day).

    Excess weight or obesity is by far the number one health concern in this country.
    Sixty percent of Americans are either overweight or obese, including over 20 percent of teenagers.
    All are at risk for serious physical and emotional health problems.
