    Just do 30 minutes of exercise a day, like running, jogging etc, do some sit ups and even walking for an hour a day is good. Also, eat 3 healthy meals a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and snack inbtween if hungry on fruit etc.
    Good luck!

    here is what my dietician suggests – follow a practical diet. start your meal with a soup or a huge salad. this fills u up. Make sure your plate has this ratio – 50% veg, 25% carb, 25% protein.this will prevent cravings occassional treat is OK. have a snack every three hours. fruit (ideally berries) or soy nuts. just 2 tbsp of soya subsides hunger pangs. switch from white rice and bread to brown. eat 900gms of veggies a day.Lose a kilo a week. that is permanent loss. pick an exercise regime you like.
    get a pedometer and take 10,000 steps everyday.try exercise videos.

    Losing weight is the easiest thing in the world.
    Only eat when you are hungry rather than when you think you are hungry.
    Stop eating when you are no longer hungry.

    i went to weightwatchers meetings,yes you have to pay a fee but there is the motivation of getting weighed every week. it is a buzz as you see your weight going down. i also took a food diary and listed everything that went in my mouth, it made me more aware of what i was eating. i did simple swaps for example i’d have a jacket potato instead of chips/french fries. yes it’s hard but you really have to put your mind body and soul into it! tell your friends and family your diet plans ,they will encourage you

    If you are looking for a actual structured diet I preferr the ZONE. That way you dont have to give up any of the foods you like you still get protien, fats, and yes even carbs. But the main thing to do is to just portion control and dont eat any carbs after 8 pm. Carbs are good for you cuz they help give your body energy but you dont need them at night for get your carbs in the morning and the afternoon. Also start to become more active and work out 3-5 times a week doing cardio (running, swimming, riding a bike) and strength training. Cuz you can cut all the calories you want but if you dont burn them then they wont go no were. And if you are really serious and can get a trainer. They can create meals for you and design work outs so you can make sure that you are doing your exercise properly. Also they can offer you some moral support and help you break through and obsticals you might face in reaching your goal.

    Hiya Emma, before considering any weight loss and exercise regime, the best thing to do is get checked out by your doctor or a dietitian to make sure that you are fit enough and capable of doing the exercises you plan. ( It’s ok planning an exercise regime but no good if it’s going to kill you).
    Replacing sweet stuff and fried stuff with healthy vegetables like raw carrot, celery and other salad vegetables, or find healthier ways to cook things like potatoes.
    A gentle decrease in weight is best, as it is easier to maintain, and I imagine exercises like swimming will be suggested.
    Walking up and down stairs can also have a good effect instead of taking the elevator/escalator. To make it even harder,put left foot on the stair, then bring the right foot onto the same stair, lead with the left foot again, bringing the right foot up next to it.
    On the next flight of stairs, lead with the right foot.
    The reason I suggested swimming was that the water supports the weight, whilst all muscle groups can be worked, but as I said before, before commencing any new exercise and or diet regime, consult your doctor or dietitian first to ensure you are actually ft enough to partake.
    Good luck, I hope it goes well,
    Mike t

    Cardiovascular exercise, running and cycling and some toning.

    Swimming is excellent cardio and also tones the whole body

    I love all three of the above workouts.

    As for food aim for the following;

    200-300 cals for breakfast
    60 cal snack
    300-400 cals for lunch
    60 cal snack
    400-500 cals for dinner

    Loads of water, I mean a lot!!! and spike it with some citrus fruit as this has an enzyme in it that quite literally eats fat!

    These meals should be made up of good quality, close to source foods no alcohol, no soda pop not even the sugar free variety.

    Remember if you have to open a packet to get to it, it is probably man made, processed and full of crap.

    Best of luck

    Hi Emma,

    the best program that you can possibly follow is called turbulence training. Go to

    and you’ll find a link to it there. There is also a link to an audio file with Jillian Michaels from the biggest loser (my favorite trainer from that show by the way) where she talks about it. I’ve followed it and lost 40lbs and kept it off for over 2 years.

    Good luck!

    I have recently lost a 13lbs by running and walking every day and cutting back on the bad food. I do have a gym, but only really go there if the weather is yuk. Nothing better than wrapping up warm, strapping on the trainers and running on the street or by my local reservoir
    It may not sound ‘quick fix’ or instant results but once you have the bug for running, sitting in front of a tv eating crap becomes incredibly unappealing.
    Good luck

    Hi Moonpiglet! I’ve lost 111 pounds since March 2007, and this is how I did it:

    1. I cut out caffeine. No pop of any kind, actually, whether or not it has calories or caffeine.
    2. I drink 3L of water/day minimum.
    3. NO fast food. Not now, not ever. That’s the one absolute “food rule” I have for myself.
    4. Exercise 1 hr/day at LEAST 3 times/week.
    5. Eat sensibly (no huge portions).

    That’s it. I don’t starve myself, and I can have a slice of pizza or a bit of chocolate once in a while. I just have to remember that “once in a while” doesn’t mean “once a day.” It means ONCE IN A WHILE. And I HAVE to exercise. In fact, I love jogging now! The weight loss has slowed a bit since the beginning, but I’m still losing an average of 5 lbs. per month.

    Hope some of this helps. Can’t promise it’ll work for you, but it worked for me.
