    I would highly advice you to consult a personal trainer if you can afford it. What I do know is that your burn most calories on the Eliptical mashine at the gym. I burned of 400 cal in half an hour. Key is to keep your heart rate high. To loose weight you definitely need to cut calories (maybe 1500-2000/day) keep a food journal to keep track. Stay away from processed foods, sugar (fruit’s OK) and eat healthy proteins like Turkey, Tuna, Tofy, Chicken and veggies. It’s healthy to loose 2lbs/week but 4lbs would be OK too. But if you had a trainer it would be easier, I am telling you it’s the best thing I’ve done to get back into shape! Good luck!

    Just burn more calories than you consume, you will start losing weight. Employ the “kiss” method (keep it super simple).

    Eat the big meal when you have the most opertunity to burn it off. Take the stairs whenever possible. Park farther away when shopping to burn more calories (Also cuts back on the amount of dings your car will be subjected to). Take multivitamins daily so your body can get the minerals / vitamins it needs to function properly (more efficiently burn colories) and grow accustomed to sncking on things like jerky, nuts, salsa, power bars, oatmeal and cereal instead of candy, chips and pasteries.
    Drink lots of water. I work out with a friend (also, find friends working towards the same goal, for support and encouragement) and his midsection looked really tight. After a few months his abs were ripped! I kept asking what was he doing different, his answer was and always he stopped drinking soda. Wow, what a difference eliminating soda from your diet can make.
    If there is one crutch ‘I” have is soda. Everything else I mentioned, I already do. my physique is nice, and abs are decent, but could be great if I just put down the sugar water like my friend, its tough. I eat no other sugar except soda, and diet soda to me is just gross.
    But if there is something you consume that you just can’t live without, work extra hard to burn the extra calories to see results. The whole trick is, its not what you do two or three times a week, its what you do all the time. You need to change your life habits, and until you are ready to do that, your results will be yo-yo weight gains and losses.

    P.S. don’t worry about lbs. lost. Over time you will start to lose size, and maybe not so much weight. Weight is an arbitrary number. As you work out more, you build muscle, muscle burns calories much more efficiently than fat. Muscle however weighs more than fat too. So don’t worry about weight, it will come the better your body burns the excess fat. Size is what really matters, no one walks around with a sign on announcing their weight.

    Hi! Don’t worry… u can reduce ur weight…
    I ve reduced 4 kg from last month…it requires littttle determination..
    Try this dude…
    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).

    Adopting a new eating style that promotes weight loss must include lowering your total calorie intake. But decreasing calories need not mean giving up taste, satisfaction or even ease of meal preparation. One way you can lower your calorie intake is by eating more plant-based foods — fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Strive for variety to help you achieve your goals without giving up taste or nutrition. Cutting back on calories is easier if you focus on limiting fat.

    Dieting alone can help you lose weight. Cutting 250 calories from your daily diet can help you lose about half a pound a week: 3,500 calories equals 1 pound of fat. But add a 30-minute brisk walk four days a week, and you can double your rate of weight loss.

    The goal of exercise for weight loss is to burn more calories, although exercise offers many other benefits as well. How many calories you burn depends on the frequency, duration and intensity of your activities. One of the best ways to lose body fat is through steady aerobic exercise — such as walking — for more than 30 minutes most days of the week.

    Even though regularly scheduled aerobic exercise is best for losing fat, any extra movement helps burn calories. Lifestyle activities may be easier to fit into your day. Think about ways you can increase your physical activity throughout the day. For example, make several trips up and down stairs instead of using the elevator, or park at the far end of the lot.

    A realistic goal if you exercise and eat right is to lose 2 pounds per week, so if you need to lose 40 pounds, it would take 20 weeks, which is 5 months – by the way, your size has nothing to do with it – pounds are pounds. I cannot tell you how many calories you need to consume in order to lose weight because all calorie counter calculaters require age and activity level input, and you have not specified this information. However, here a link with the calorie calculator where you will be able to find out exactly how many calories you need to lose weight:

    Good luck!
