I work 40+hrs, as well as school, how can I lose weight quickly and effectively?

I work in a Restaurant as a Manager, I am a full time culinary student as well. I am 5’3″ and weigh about 165, and I need to lose 25-30 pounds. I just have a breast reduction surgery, which made me lose 6 pounds, but that is just a start. I need more help-from a busy person who has done this successfully-would be great. Thanks in advance!

    I’m not sure how fast you want this done, two things that can help you out.

    1. Exercise 3 times a week for 15 minutes each and you will start losing weight in no time. It does not matter what you do; aerobics will result in a direct loss of weight, whereas weight training will raise your metabolism resulting in weight loss.

    2. Cutting out 250 calories a day (Thats two cans of sprite if you are like me) will cause you to lose half of a pound a week, assuming you are not gaining weight (Then you’ll just gain less), and cutting 500 calories a day will cause you to lose an entire pound a week. Like I said, the easiest way to do this is to replace soda with water (Which contains no calories).

    Good luck.

    Homeopathic Treatment for Excessive Fat and Weight :-
    PHYTOLACCA BERRY’s Mother Tincture is perhaps the safest and sure fire way of loosing excessive fat around abdomen. With Phytolacca Berry once you loose the excessive fat and weight you don’t get it back because you body takes care of itself after that and keeps you from gathering up excessive fat. It is prescribed after having a baby too, to get the tummy to loose its flab and to make it flatter and tighter. And after loosing weight with this you don’t get flabby it tightens up the flab and skin along with helping your body to shed the excessive accumulation of fat around the girth
    The dosage is 15 to 20 drops of the tincture in half a cup of hot water thrice a day half hour before or after meals.
    Avoid Chocolates, Coffee, Mints, Red Meat and Carbonated and Alcoholic drinks while taking Homeopathic Medicines. You have to take it for at least 30 to 45 days after that you start to feel the results.
    To the best of my knowledge its the safest and the most sure fire way of loosing fat and weight and keeping it of for keeps. Excellent remedy for Obese people who cant seem to shed weight despite trying. Loose as much as you want to !
    Homeopathic Remedies can be found at all Major Herbal Stores or could be bought on line, In most of the world Homeopathic remedies are quite cheap and easy to find and they do not need a prescription.
    Take care and God Bless !

    P.S
    Regular active exercise is advised with all weight loosing medicines and remedies 🙂 Take care

    The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better:

    *1) Burn more calories then you’re consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at http://www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/library/weight/calsburned.htm

    Get an online, desktop, or cell phone diet and fitness calculator. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities.

    Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight:
    Adults: http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.htm
    Teens/Children: http://www.kidshealth.org/kid/exercise/weight/bmi.html

    It is difficult and unhealthy to lose more than one or two pounds per week. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. If you eat 500 fewer calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. If you burn through exercise 500 more calories per day for a week you will lose one pound.

    Here are two articles on how to break through a weight loss plateau:
    http://www.webmd.com/content/article/86/99147.htm
    http://www.webmd.com/content/pages/18/102117.htm

    *2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement.

    Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water. Read this article for more information on high GL Carbs:

    *4) Get plenty of sleep. Sleep experts say most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance, health, and safety.

    *5) Educate yourself continually on health issues and make a life long commitment to good health. A great free publication is “Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005”. A reputable test you can take to measure your biological age is at http://realage.com
    Look at all areas where you can enhance your health. For example, make improvements in the quality of the air you breathe. Review outdoor air quality forecasts where you live and get an indoor air purifier.
