    Substitute any craving for an apple. (when its not meal time of course), 1200 calorie intake, go onto to track your calorie intake (they also have meal plans, i turn them off), dance! Dancing really will make you drop the pounds. But really eating an apple for my snacks and saltine crackers, and dancing, I lost 10lbs in about 3 weeks.

    Eat food calories equal to 10X what U
    want to weigh ( Example 140 X 10 = 1400 cals)
    Use Treadmill 3 X a day – 30 mins each time.
    keep a calorie journal of what you eat daily.
    Cut out the sweets (soda,candy,cake,etc)
    watch your fat intake. If you should go over
    alloted calories, subtract from next day cals
    If going to a party, try to save a few cals a
    day (bank as many as U can) to use on ur
    party day meal – it’s all about spending more
    cals, than you take in. If U are on a 1500 cal
    diet, try to bank 50 cals a day, by the end of
    the week U will have an extra 350 cals to spend
    or leave in the bank, for a special occasion.

    Hi Betty

    First it is just great you are looking to do some walking or running on a treadmill of some sort. All exercise is good to do when you want to start blowing away those calories! (Wouldn’t it be just great if that was all it took – just BLOW THEM AWAY 🙂 We wish!)

    You know that calorie burn off is a function of the amount of work that goes into the process. What is often overlooked though is that doing so takes a significant amount of work. Typically a calorie burn off really only starts in a good way after about 45 minutes of continuous walking at a brisk pace. You can read a bit more about this in our Fitness Walking 2 program in the first link below*. You will see there that the calorie burn part only really starts when you are walking 45-60 minutes a day, five days a week.

    As to accomplishing that in one month, you might be able to do that through really hard work and strict diet. It will in all likelihood be a short term fix. What we suggest you consider is a longer term and more beneficial plan. You want to really change your lifestyle a bit to stay on a path. Crash courses seldom work in the long term. If they did, there would be no multi-billion dollar weight loss and diet industry.

    You may wish to also check out our Tread Mill Walking Page here – – too for some ideas on the tread mill work. If you combine some of those factors with the Fitness Walking Programs then you could really set up something great for yourself.

    Feel free to have a look at our Walking Tips and Walking Techniques pages in the second and third links below as well. These apply equally to a tread mill or outdoor walking.

    Do have a look. See what you think. Feel free to get in touch through our website if you have more questions.

    All the best

    PS – while you may not be in what you see as our ‘target audience’ the principles apply to everyone 🙂

    There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me.

    Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why.

    Make a few additional small changes – walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars.

    Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can’t get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one.

    In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.

    Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate – in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don’t. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies.

    Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day.

    Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day.

    Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body.

    Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc. Here are a few helpful links.
