    Here are a few tips;

    WHEN to eat for losing weight…

    • Eat (at least) three times a day.
    Because when you eat only once a day, your metabolism gets slower than it already is! That’s the main reason. Sounds funny, but to lose weight… you must eat (the right things, of course)
    • Eat low-fat, high-fiber foods such as salads and vegetable pastas.
    • Your last meal should be before 18:00. Try.
    OK, one apple after 18:00
    • Don’t starve
    Starvation is not good for losing weight, nor your health.
    Starvation is the worse thing you can do in a weight loss diet.
    • Try oatmeal instead of cornflakes for breakfast–eating oatmeal can help reduce cholesterol levels, and its high fiber content will keep you full longer.

    WHAT to drink for losing weight…

    • Drink 6-8 glasses of water every day !
    Can be tap, plain, mineral, sparkling. I just love mineral sparkling water!
    This improves your bowel, reduces the “hunger” sensation, and hydrates your skin. Your skin will look much better after the first weeks!
    Don’t believe the slogan “water makes me fat”. Beside being stupid… you might get into serious troubles with your kidneys.
    • Drink ONLY natural juices, freshly squeezed!
    Don’t drink Coca Cola, Pepsi, Spite etc. during the diet. Even lite or light versions.

    Exercise for losing weight…

    • If you want quicker results – exercise would be good.
    • Don’t just sit in front of the TV and eat peanuts…
    I guarantee THIS won’t work for your weight loss…
    • Start a regular exercise program and stick with it. Don’t be afraid of those sweat suits and Lycra pants!
    • Start swimming. Swimming is an excellent exercise to get involved with, since it increases blood flow and uses muscles we don’t regularly use. Start a swimming program and try to do it 3 times a week. You will feel excellent and rejuvenated.
    • Choose an exercise program that you enjoy, and don’t shun the unconventional. For instance, did you know that regular vigorous dancing is exercise too?
    • Also Cardiovascular exercises such as running, jogging, or aerobics will help you lose that unwanted belly fat. Weight training can also help you lose body fat because the more muscle mass you have, the more ability your system has to burn body fat.

    Good luck!
    Hope this helps~

    use unrefined cocoa butter every night. you can try squalene oil and aloe vera for the marks that are already there. they won’t fade away. they are like scars so you have to use something that will regenerate the skin and replace the scar tissue.

    The best way is to either gain weight slowly or lose it slowly.

    If you do it too quickly, you wont give the skin enough time to adjust so you might gain some stretch marks.

    I’m not sure whether you are female or male, and I am not sure whether you are wanting to lose weight from being overweight… or lose fat and build muscle.

    If you are female, it’s quite normal to get stretch marks on your hips. Stretch marks can appear anywhere, arms, hips, thighs, calves, bum, back, boobs etc and either sex gets them… not only females.

    They do fade with time. If your stretch marks are a pink/red/purply colour then they are either new or are yet to fade. Everyone is different and everyones stretch marks fade at different speeds.

    I would recommend moisturing your skin though. To keep your skin nice and suttle and able to stretch a bit more easier. I would also recommend getting your daily water down, about 2 litres or more as that hydrates your skin so it can stretch more easily without tearing.

    You could also rub some cocoa butter/cream into your current stretch marks to sooth them, and maybe help them fade.

    If you want to lose weight, you need to two things: eat less and exercise more. Weight gain happens when you create a calorie surplus (eat more than you burn). Your body takes the excess calories and converts them to fat which get stored around your stomach, arms and thighs. The longer you remain in a calorie surplus, the more weight you’ll gain. To lose that weight, you need to do the opposite. You need to create a calorie deficit (start eating less than you burn).

    Your first step is to figure out how many calories you burn on a daily basis. This calculator will help you out http://calorieneedscalculator.com The number you get from this tool is what your body burns on a daily basis. To lose weight, simply eat less. It sounds a lot easier than it is but making small changes helps you adjust to a new lifestyle. Don’t think of this as a diet, think of it as a new life. Instead of eating foods high in sugars, white flour and saturated fat, go with fruits, vegetables, whole wheats, fish, lean meats, nuts and beans. In addition to eating less, you also need to exercise more. Start off at 1-2 times per week and work your way up to 3-5 times per week.

    Don’t make all of these changes at once or you won’t be able to properly adjust to them. Generally, eating healthier foods will decrease your calorie intake. Compare a doughnut to an apple and you’ll see that healthy foods are lower in calories. You can find some more information at the Beginner’s Guide to Dieting – http://straightdiet.com

    To lose weight (fat), include more fibrous slow digesting carbs, as opp. to the fast digesting ones.

    No white breads, fast foods, sodas (not even diet) no ketchups, sugar, only skim milk, not 2%, skim and whole grain non sweet (sugary) cereal, whole wheat bread, maybe buy some soy or whey protein.

    Include lean meats like ham, and other sources of protein. Avoid red meats. Take a multivitamin, calcium and vitamin d every 2 days, one or two V8s a day (or every other day).

    Don’t starve, eat small healthy meals. A lot of small meals opposed to a few bigger ones– make sure is has at least 8-10 or more g of protein, not too much protein because the body can only digest a certain amount at a time; and avoid too many fruits, carbs and sugars. Fibrous veggies, greens (no starches or potatoes) are good, and no BBQ sauce (unless used sparingly) and not too much (if any) salad dressing.

    Before bed (2 hrs), eat something with protein, don’t
    eat many carbs before bed. Eat some of that good cereal in the morning, you need quality carbs, just not too much, and the slow digesting ones.

    Do slow crunches until you can not do anymore, jog stairs (be safe though), warm up first and do sprints, short bursts of intense activity is very effective compared to long weak activity, just don’t over do it. Also include some slow but long endurance jogging. Be active!

    Jog stairs ;and also do some lunges until it burns, do this every day or 2 days, keep going and don’t give up, same with eating, you need some fat, so one or two fish oils daily.

    Eat fish (not fried, be careful, very careful for bones) Peanut butter on whole wheat (no jelly), which has protein, and don’t worry about the fat in that. Avocados, has fat, good fat; eat it when your hunger cravings get you.

    When you do crunches, also twist on some to work your sides, keep tension on your abs.
