    New research has shown that the best thing you can do to lose weight is get enough sleep. People who get less than 8 hours of sleep per night tend to also get fat.

    There is no quick fix. I promise you, there isn’t one. How do I know…….if there was, no-one would be overweight, we’d all be popping the magic pill.

    I’m afraid the only option is to eat better (not necessarily less, just better) and to move more.

    You don’t say what your weight is, so can’t really comment on what you should be doing, but I can say catagorically that you should stop taking anything that makes you feel dizzy.

    I would stop eating so much. Try to eat only breakfats,lunch and dinner. With a few healthy snacks along the way. Like a bowl of blueberries or strawberries. And don’t forget to exersize! Every day, take a 1 mile run. Or, ask your parents if you can go up to the YMCA. Swimming can burn off a ton of calories. Good luck! 🙂

    No “miracle” pills necessary. The truth is …….. what people don’t want to hear. You CAN lose weight if you finally decide to get off your………. couch. Diet pill companies get rich on people that don’t want to do what it takes to lose weight.

    How to lose weight for free. Most kids workout doing what they love. Go back to what you liked as a child if it’s roller blading, basketball, swimming. The thing is to keep your workout fun, so you keep doing it for life. Running is the most effective way to lose weight 100 to 150 calories burn per mile (4 laps on a track = 1 mile). Most people will have to alternate walking and jogging until they build the stamina to jog non-stop. Some other benefits of running are, you don’t depend on anybody to get your workout like, someone to spot you at the gym or a team in basketball, you go at your OWN pace, and it increases your endurance which will make you better at all sports. Why do you think pro boxers and football players jog. For you single parents you can buy a jogging stroller. It’s a stoller with bigger wheel that allow you to jog and get your child out of the house for a change.

    The body doesn’t burn fat by sections. You will burn fat in general when you raise your body temperature by working out, the only thing is some fat resist to burn off, so you have to work harder at it.

    Weight training can confuse people. People workout for 2 months and don’t see a change in the scale and give up. Weight training is excellent to gain muscle and tone up but if you are gaining muscle that’s why you don’t see a dramatic change on the scale. Actually MUSCLES WEIGH MORE THAN FAT but this is good. The more muscle your body grows the leaner you will get. Why? Muscles when put into use, they burn calories, thus, the bigger the muscles the more calories you’ll burn, the leaner and tone you’ll appear. That’s why at the gym the trainers will measure your BMI (Body Mass Index). Let me give an example if a guy started going to the gym weighing 200 pounds and 30% of that is fat yet 3 months later he might still be 200 pounds but with only 25% fat that means he gained 5% of his body weight in pure muscle.

    Step 1
    Determine Your Daily Calorie Goal
    To estimate your daily calorie needs for MAINTAINING your current weight, take your present weight and multiply by 13. That number covers your metabolic needs for the day, factoring in a bit of light activity. So if you weigh 180 pounds, you need about 2,340 calories per day. To lose a pound a week, you must then create a calorie deficit of 500 calories a day (3,500 calories equals one pound).

    In other words if you’re 120 lbs and supposed to eat 2,000 calories per day but eat 3,000 calories a day and you burn 500 caloires a day workingout, at the end of the day you’re still 500 calories over your daily allowance. If this is your case then it doesn’t matter that you workout, you’ll continue to gain weight. On the other hand if you weigh 300 lbs and let’s say your eating your daily allowance of 2,000 calories or less per day and burn 500 calories working out you will lose weight. But remember: Weight loss is a lot easier when you factor in your running mileage (1 mile = 100 calories). So your calorie deficit can–and should–be created by eliminating some calories from your daily diet and increasing the number you burn per day through running.

    Step 2
    Distributing Your Calories
    After you’ve determined the total number of calories you should be consuming per day to meet your weight-loss goals, divide those calories so that 50 percent of them come from carbohydrates, 25 percent come from protein, and 25 percent come from fat. So, for example, if you’ve determined that your daily calorie goal is 1,800 calories, then 900 of those calories should come from carbohydrates, 450 from protein, and 450 from fat. Remember: You’re not striving to have every food you eat meet this ratio. You’re simply aiming to get your total daily calorie intake to fall within these guidelines.

    Step 3
    Selecting Carbohydrates
    Lots of runners will look at the 50-percent carbohydrate guideline and think they’ll go into macaroni withdrawal. They’ll argue it’s not enough–that they need 60 percent or more. After all, carbohydrates are the body’s preferred energy source.

    While it’s true that elite runners need a very high percentage of calories from carbohydrates, recreational runners simply don’t need as many carbs. Taking in 50 percent of your daily calories from carbohydrate sources will provide you with all the energy you need.
    Because high-carb foods sustain you during your workouts, they are best eaten just before and just after your runs. When choosing which carbs to eat, opt for those that are fiber-rich and have a high water content to keep you feeling full.

    Carbs to Choose Often
    Fruits (about 60 calories per serving)
    Apple, orange, pear, nectarine: 1 small (tennis ball size)
    Banana: 1 small (5 inch)
    Peach, plum: 1 medium (fist size)
    Grapefruit: 1/2 whole fruit
    Canteloupe: 1 cup
    Berries: 1 cup
    Fresh pineapple: 3/4 cup
    Canned fruit (in its own juice): 1/2 cup

    Low-Starch Vegetables (about 25 calories per serving)
    Carrots, celery, cabbage, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, leeks, onions, green beans: 1 cup raw or 1/2 cup cooked
    Green pepper: 1 whole
    Asparagus: 7 spears cooked or 14 spears raw
    Lettuce/raw greens: 1 cup 100-percent vegetable juice: 1/3 cup

    Carbs to Choose with Caution (watch those portions!)
    High-Starch Vegetables (about 80 calories per serving)
    Beans (lima, navy, pinto): 1/3 cup
    Corn: 1/2 cup
    Peas/lentils: 1/2 cup
    Baked white or sweet potato with skin: 1 small (tennis ball size)

    Pasta/Rice (about 80 calories per serving)
    Couscous (cooked): 1/3 cup
    Brown or white rice (cooked): 1/3 cup
    Noodles/pasta (cooked): 1/2 cup
    Bulgur (cooked): 1/2 cup

    Breads/Cereal/Crackers (about 80 calories per serving)
    Tortilla (white or wheat): 1
    100-percent whole-wheat bread: 1 slice
    Mini-bagel: 1
    English muffin: 1/2
    Pretzels: 3/4 ounce or 8 sourdough nuggets
    Popcorn (air popped): 3 cups
    Saltine crackers: 6
    Rice cakes (all varieties, large): 2
    High-fiber cereals: 3/4 cup
    Oatmeal: 2/3 cup cooked or 1 instant packet

    Step 4
    Selecting Proteins
    While protein’s primary role is maintaining muscle integrity, it also satisfies hunger. Protein provides a greater feeling of fullness, ounce for ounce, than an equivalent amount of carbohydrate. The effect: You’re content with fewer calories. That’s why 25 percent of your calories should come from protein.
    When you choose proteins, lean is always best. Fat adds flavor to protein–but also calories. So be sure to limit the number of calories in the protein sources you choose. A good rule of thumb: The fattier the protein, the smaller the serving.

    Protein Picks
    Very lean (about 35 calories per serving)
    Chicken or turkey breast (skinless): 1 ounce
    Fish fillet (all whitefish): 1 ounce
    Canned, water-packed tuna: 1 ounce
    Shellfish: 1 ounce
    Egg whites: 2 large
    Egg substitute: 1/4 cup

    Lean (about 55 calories per serving)
    Chicken or turkey (skinless dark meat): 1 ounce
    Salmon, swordfish, herring, trout, bluefish: 1 ounce
    Lean beef (flank steak, top round, ground sirloin): 1 ounce
    Veal or lamb (roast or lean chop): 1 ounce
    Pork (tenderloin): 1 ounce
    Canadian bacon: 1 ounce
    Low-fat hot dogs: 1
    Low-fat luncheon meats: 1 ounce

    Dairy Products (about 90 calories per serving)
    Fat-free or 1-percent-fat cottage cheese (calcium fortified): 1 cup
    Low-fat, sugar-free yogurt: 3/4 cup
    Fat-free, sugar-free yogurt: 1 cup
    Low-fat cheese (all types): 2 ounces

    Step 5
    Selecting Fats
    Most dieters immediately start cutting fat. But instead of just cutting out junk-food sources of fat, they also cut fatty foods that are healthy, including nuts and nut butters, and olives and olive oil.

    Foods with a little fat help slow the rate of digestion and provide a sense of fullness. Try to get 25 percent of your daily calories from good fats by selecting heart-healthy vegetable, nut, and fish sources.

    Fats of Choice
    Full-Calorie sources (about 50 calories per serving)
    All oils: 1 teaspoon
    Avocado (medium): 1/8
    Almonds, cashews, filberts: 6
    Peanuts: 10
    Pistachios: 15
    Olives (green or black): 8 medium
    Peanut butter (creamy or chunky): 1 teaspoon

    Reduced-Calorie sources (about 25 calories per serving)
    Light tub margarine: 1 teaspoon
    Light mayonnaise/salad dressing: 1 teaspoon
    Light cream cheese: 1 teaspoon
    Fat-free salad dressing: 1 tablespoon

    Step 6
    Establish an Eating/Running Pattern
    The wild card in the 50-25-25 eating plan is how you distribute your calories throughout the day. That depends on your running schedule. Because you want to eat the bulk of your carbohydrate calories around the times when you will be active, you need to know ahead of time when you’re going to exercise each day. Then select mostly carbohydrate-rich foods to fuel up beforehand or afterward. By eating most of your carbohydrate calories around your runs, you’ll then eat most of your protein and fat calories the rest of the day when you’re more sedentary.
    Remember one other guideline when establishing your daily eating pattern: Don’t go too many hours without eating or your brain will signal starvation mode and stimulate your appetite. So go ahead and have a morning, afternoon, and evening meal, along with snacks. Just make sure that when you tally up all your eating, you’re still within your daily calorie range.
    Drink at least 2 liters of water throughout the day to keep hydrated during your runs and enjoy the added benefit of feeling full so you don’t eat fatty foods. There are runners websites that are full of great tips. By the way. How many overweight marathoners have you seen? Good luck 🙂

    Stop taking the pills. They aren’t going to help. In order for these pills to do anything, you have to change a lot of other things in your life. You can’t have your cake and eat it to. If you don’t want to exercise and eat right, then you’ll probably get fat. If you put a little effort into eating better and moving around a bit more, you can lose weight or at least maintain.
