What’s the best way to lose weight, best diet to follow?

I’ve been counting calories (about 1500 a day) and exercising via my treadmill at least 20 minutes, three times a week. This is slowly working, but some other people I know are losing quicker on the low carb diet or Weight Watchers. Should I increase my amount of exercise or maybe switch to a different diet?

    those diets only work until you stop following them and then you gain the weight back. keep doing what you’re doing but push yourself harder. if you’re eating that much calories per day and only exercising that long it will take longer to lose weight. either work out longer or eat less. or you could eat fruit and veggies and eat as much as you want. if you really want to lose weight, try working out longer or at least do 20 mins 5 days a wk.

    Slowly losing weight is the best way because you are giving your body time to adjust to the weight loss. Weight Watchers is one of the best programs out there because they encourage you to eat healthy, exercise regularly, and lose slowly.

    I think you need to increase your exercise. I dont believe in diets because once you get off them you gain the weight back. So eating healthy foods and a regular exercise routine is the only way, I think, to lose weight and keep it off. Now, your calories are good. Do not go below 1200 or 1400 for boys. There is a yahoo group that has good workout programs and they are serious about fitness. So you might want to check them out. I hope this helps you.

    I know this is long reply. But please take your time and read this. I know this work. So please read it =)

    Water is very good for you and specially if you’re on diet and if you’re working out-water is very good and keeps you hydrated.
    I don’t believe in pills or any weight loss shakes-they are bogus and lame and are temporally and have many side effects.

    First loose the soda, cut down on pizza and fast food.
    If you like fires make ’em at home in oven. They come out very yummy and oil free.

    Key is to eat small portions 5 times a day.
    Morning: boiled eggs, corn flakes, fat free milk, if you want to fry eggs loose the yolk and eat the white part.
    Morning snack around 10:30am-11am: a piece of fruit / 2 cups of veggie/ salad
    Lunch: Turkey / Chicken lunchmeat with whole grain or wheat bread.
    1 Cup of veggies.
    Mid day snack (around 2:30pm or so) a piece of fruit or health bar.
    Dinner: Grill fish with veggies / brown rice with beans/ wheat pasta with grill chicken.
    9pm snack (optional-only if you feel lil hungry 2 hours before your sleep time) have yogurt.

    The key is to loose red meat and pork and add more wheat products to your diet. Drink lots of water. As you can read i did not talk about any sweet products. Sweet only from fruits no cookies no cake no brownies.None of that. Sweet things have more and load and calories. Take your protein because you would need that protein for your work out.

    For hips, behind and thighs one thing SQUATS and LUNGES helps a lot!
    SQUATS are hard to do in start but once you get use to of it, no problem
    for butt is “BUTT BLASTER” EXERCISE. You can do it in your bedroom. To see how to perform those exercises, you can go image google put the key word and check out the pics and that will give you idea on how to perform those exercises. All the exercises i told you, you can do it in your bedroom, no need to go to gym or buy any equipment.

    Start by doing 3 sets of 15 each.

    Believe me you will see results within a month.
    I have told other people too, this entire veggies and fruit intake will make you very regular and you will make about 4 trips to the bathroom, so be prepare.

    This’ll help u lose weight:
    I was just looking at some website about losing weight[im doing the same thing myself]. Cut down on dairy products and red meat, soda and candy. Also cut down on pasta. Eat whole wheat bread, drink water, eat vegetables and fruits.If you want to lose weight faster, you’ll need to eat less and exercise more. Bottom line: 1,050 to 1,200 calories and one hour of exercise a day (but be sure not to dip below this calorie level for safety’s sake). On this type of plan, you can expect to lose 3-5 pounds the first week, or more if you weigh over 250 pounds.

    “Dieters who follow the plan can lose 2 pounds from diet and 1 pound from exercise each week, and even more if they have more to lose, because the more fat you have to lose, the faster it comes off,” says Dansinger.”
    I’m going to use my weight as an example. I weigh 156lbs, and I need to lose weight in 6 weeks. 6×2=12, so in 6 weeks I’ll be 144lbs!

    But this one sounds even better to me:
    Losing 5lbs a week. Then I’d lose 30lbs and I’d be 126lbs. That would be EVEN better!

    Ok, seriously I’m not anorexic, but this sounds better :
    Then I could lose 10lbs in a week. 60lbs in 6 weeks! Then I’d be 96lbs. But, I’d only do that workout for 4 weeks.So I could be 116lbs[I’m 5’5, perfect weight].

    Happy Dieting [:

    Keep exercising the way you are and change your diet to eating more vegetables, fruits, fish and poultry and lay off fatty and fast foods. Try eating smaller portions and drink plenty of fluids.
    Also start taking a supplement that burns fat, increases your energy and endurance and reduces carbohydrate utilization and increases your metabolism.
    Good luck

    Any form of cardio preformed at a higher intensity will drop your body fat fast and effectively. Given the nature of such a rigorous exercise, the exercise itself is broken up into intervals, giving it the name “high intensity interval training.” Interval training routines are usually taught in the more recent and proven fitness programs. This would be perfect for you since your body is already used to a routine. It is very important to change up your exercise regularly to keep your body guessing so you don’t plateau.

    The benefits behind a higher intensity workout make such a routine much more powerful than a traditional low intensity workout. It is known to boost metabolism and increase the maximum amount of oxygen your body can take in during a workout. Both these elements will greatly aid fat loss.

    It is important not to neglect your diet though, as it is a major component in the weight loss process. If you have enough dedication, it is best to eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day. This will land you at five or six small meals a day. The key in diet is lean protein. Almost every meal should contain some source of lean protein. Due to the fact that protein requires much more energy to digest than carbohydrates, this will significantly increase your metabolism. In addition, make sure to cut out any soft drinks in your diet and replace it with water. Drinking a lot of water is also a great way to assist you in your weight loss goals.

    If you stick to a legitimate fitness routine then you will without a doubt drop the weight. Just remember that this will take a lot of dedication, but you will eventually reach your goal. I suggest looking at a few of the proven fitness routines recommended at

    Have you ever heard of Fat Loss for Idiots or Weight Loss 4 Idiots? It’s one of the most sellable e-books ever written that talks about losing fat easily and quickly. For a certain price, the company that sells this e-book allows you to access it and read its contents for a good 90 days.

    If you wish, there’s a short YouTube video about it:

    To help you know more about it, here are some of the things it covers.

    What is in it?

    Generally, the Fat Loss for Idiots is a guide to losing weight and fat as the name implies. In the book, you will be able to read the rules involved in weight loss. These rules, also known as “10 Idiot Proof Rules of Weight Loss” are easy to understand and follow as they are stated in the simplest terms. Aside from the simplified terms, the directions are also simple and short making it easy to understand and do.

    Another thing that the e-book contains is the diet generator. The book will give you meal plans that will last you for 11 days. So for each day, the book has a menu for you to follow.

    What does it promise?

    Fat Loss for Idiots promises a lot of things. For the most part, it promises to make you really lose weight. To be specific, the ebook is able to make you lose 9 pounds every eleven days. With the ebook, you can be sure to lose a lot of weight in a short time.

    Another big promise the ebook gives is that it can make you lose weight using a healthy meal plan. Many weight lose plans make you lose weight by skipping and scrimping on some things that your body needs such as fat. With the ebook, you can be sure that you won’t be having any of this. As a matter of fact, it will give you a menu of foods that are complete of the nutrients that your body needs. With this, you can be sure that even if you are losing weight, you are also well nourished.

    Another thing that the ebook promises is that it makes room for those who are on a vegetarian diet. Unlike other weight loss guides that specifically tell you certain things such as forcing you to eat meat, the Fat Loss for Idiots respects your diet preferences. With this, anybody can take part of the program.

    What are the recipes in the diet generator?

    Most of the time, people get turned off by diet plans because they either contain complicated recipes or make them eat prepackaged foods. As you can see, these diet plans make you shell out more money than you want to. With them, you can be sure that sooner or later, your body will lose weight or your wallet will.

    The recipes in the ebook’s diet generator are simple. They are easy to prepare. Another thing is that the recipes are also cheap. Because of these descriptions, many have said that the diets are “Spartan”.

    With all these positive things and more being offered by Fat Loss for Idiots guidebook, it is small wonder why it has become very popular. Read more about it to learn more or better yet, take part in it and see the difference.
