    about 24-30pds, depending on how much you exercise and how consistant you are. don’t just do cardio strength train to. do different kind of stuff: run, jump rope, swim, take an exerise class, or buy some dvd. same with strength trainning don’;t just work on one part work on the whole body.

    here are a few tips;

    WHEN to eat for losing weight…

    • Eat (at least) three times a day.
    Because when you eat only once a day, your metabolism gets slower than it already is! That’s the main reason. Sounds funny, but to lose weight… you must eat (the right things, of course) Eat smaller, more frequent meals. This way, your body starts to increase its metabolism so that calories are burned faster. Also, mini-meals can prevent overeating.
    • Eat low-fat, high-fiber foods such as salads and vegetable pastas.
    • Your last meal should be before 18:00. Try.
    OK, one apple after 18:00
    • Don’t starve
    Starvation is not good for losing weight, nor your health.
    Starvation is the worse thing you can do in a weight loss diet.

    WHAT to drink for losing weight…

    • Drink 6-8 glasses of water every day !
    Can be tap, plain, mineral, sparkling. I just love mineral sparkling water!
    This improves your bowel, reduces the “hunger” sensation, and hydrates your skin. Your skin will look much better after the first weeks!
    Don’t believe the slogan “water makes me fat”. Beside being stupid… you might get into serious troubles with your kidneys.
    • Drink ONLY natural juices, freshly squized!
    Don’t drink Coca Cola, Pepsi, Spite etc. during the diet. Even lite or light versions.
    I thought this was not possible for me to achieve. Now… I don’t even LIKE them anymore!
    Nothing compares to the the smell of a fresh natural fruit juice! Not speaking about health…

    exercise for losing weight…

    • If you want quicker results – exercise would be good.
    But remember, you’re not going to attend the Olympic Games! If you exercise a lot – you’ll get very hungry… and you’ll be tempted to eat more. Don’t exagerate!
    Walking is fine (but not very slow…) for your body, and your spirit. Half an hour, or one hour /day – it’s up to you. Walking can make you lean and increase blood circulation. Walking is known to be one of the best exercises a person can do, and it is healthy for the heart as well.
    Get fit while you sit new workout program that’s the laziest way to get in shape – works almost any place, anytime, anywhere… even while watching TV!
    • Don’t just sit in front of the TV and eat peanuts…
    I guarantee THIS won’t work for your weight loss…
    • Start a regular exercise program and stick with it. Don’t be afraid of those sweat suits and Lycra pants!
    • Start swimming. Swimming is an excellent exercise to get involved with, since it increases blood flow and uses muscles we don’t regularly use. Start a swimming program and try to do it 3 times a week. You will feel excellent and rejuvenated.
    • Clean your house! It is a great exercise idea if you work from home. Housework can burn off loads of calories. Start by vacuuming, polishing, dusting and cleaning glass/windows. Make your house sparkling clean while burning off excess weight.
    • Go on an adventurous vacation or retreat where you have to climb, hike, walk, row or engage in other physical activities. Stay busy and keep moving. You will be sure to burn calories.

    Good luck !

    It all depends on your body type. You should start to see minor results after about 2 weeks of consistent exercise, but a month of constant work will show even more.

    As far as the best for weight loss- ALL OF THEM. Cardio- swimming, speed walking, elliptical machines, heavy biking, or aerobics to name a few. Anything that gets your heart going, and keeps it going for at least 20 minutes.

    But add light weights too. It will help you tone your muscles, which not only give you shape but help you burn more calories.

    And just adding exercise may not make a big difference if you go home and eat a box of twinkies after. Look at minor diet modifications- leaner meats (like skinless chicken and fish), watch the sauces for caloric content, and cutting down on coffees and sodas and bad juices. Park further in the parking lot at the grocery store, take the stairs more often. Those little tings not only help with the wieght loss, but get your lifestyle conducive to keeping it off.

  6. Keith S said:

    Combining a good full body exercise program with good nutrition will burn off fat.

    If I were to choose what the best exercises are for losing belly fat, my answer would include full body exercises such as the following:

    various forms of squats, lunges, deadlifts, clean & presses, snatches, swings, presses and pulls, mountain climbers, sprinting, etc.

    Why?

    Because, these types of full body exercises would encompass a much higher percentage of the body. The way you combine those full body exercises into a strategic workout that maximizes your metabolism is also very important

  7. Hannah S said:

    How much weight you will lose depends on many things: your current height/weight/muscle mass/metabolism etc. etc.

    Exercise will help the weight come off much faster…

    Cardio is fabulous if you want to cut down:
    Try to aim for cardio at least 5 days a week for at least 30 minutes… after you work out for several weeks increase the time…

    try these exercises:
    running/walking–add inclines to help shape quads and butt
    swimming
    elliptical machine
    biking
    stair climber machine
    stadiums
    aerobic exercise classes

    You should also incorporate strength training with either body weight (push-ups and sit-ups) or light weights at least 2-3 times a week to tone up and build a little muscle. more muscle=higher metabolism=more calories burned even when you are sitting on your computer!

    Of course you should eat healthy to help the weight come off…

    Fruit:
    apples
    oranges
    grapes
    bananas
    kiwi
    honeydew melon
    pineapple
    canteloupe

    lots of vegetables!
    sweet potatoes (healthy potatoes, not the white ones)
    collard greens
    spinach
    onions
    tomatoes
    asparagus
    corn
    squash
    broccili
    cauliflower

    lean protein–cooked correctly (grilled, blacked, baked, broiled, steamed, smoked)
    chicken
    fish
    turkey
    tofu
    egg beaters (egg substitute that cuts half the calories and all the fat and cholesterol)

    good carbs:
    100% whole grain/whole wheat bread
    or wraps to cut down carbs/calories

    Snacks:
    dry cereal: cheerios, chex, special k…
    granola bars
    peanut butter crackers
    fruit
    whole wheat toast
    pretzels

    MAKE SURE YOU HYDRATE! it will boost your metabolism and keep you satiated longer!:)

    try to eat every three hours…
    in one day aim for 3 meals and 2 snacks…

    You still have a long time until then so the time to start is now.
    More important than exercising is eating properly. Check the nutritional contents in your foods to make sure they are low in fat in general (avoid saturated and trans fat TOTALLY). Do this along with 20-30 mins cardio 3-4 times a week and you’ll definitely see results. Where most ppl fail is that they don’t realize that it takes 2-3 months to see proper results. Throw in some challenging weights (weights where you can do sets of 8-10 of), and keep at it
    Consistency is what will determine if you lose weight or not.
    Good Luck !!

    It is safe to lose 1-2 pounds per week. So I would set that as a goal. Not only is this amount safe, but it is reasonable too.

    Exercising is a great part of weight loss, however, it you don’t incorporate healthy eating habits you’re not going to get too far. I would start with cardio (walking, jogging, running). Aim for 30-60 mins of physical activity on most days of the week. And you don’t have to do the same thing, try tennis, golf, swimming. It all counts!

    For developing a do-it-yourself meal plan, check out http://www.mypyramid.gov. Or for help from a nutrition expert, make an appointment with a registered dietitian in your area.

    Eating several (5-6) small portion meals of everyday healthy food per day, along with exercise, will burn calories faster and build your metabolism in a short period of time, without dieting or counting calories.
    You will lose an average of 2-3 lbs per week
    (eat about every 2 hours)
    Meal suggestions:
    piece of fruit
    bowl of cereal (high fiber low sugar)
    bowl of oatmeal
    string cheese, summer sausage
    cottage cheese/yogurt (lowfat)
    tuna/turkey/ham sandwich (lettuce, tomatoe)
    pizza
    soup
    salad
    raw veggies
    boiled eggs
    popcorn
    Always eat a good dinner (small portions)…fish/meat (bake, broil, grill) potatoes/pasta/rice, veggie…your body needs carbs, protein and vitamins to stay healthy…cooking with olive oil is best.
    Low calorie sweets…sugarless candy, ginger snap cookies,
    fig bars, 100% juice popsicles
    Drink plenty of water (6-8 glasses per day)
    Drink milk (low fat) or 100% juice/water with every meal
    (no soda pop or flavored drinks)
    Stay away from munchies, fried & fatty foods (no fast-food)
    Never eat before going to bed
    “Daily” simple and cardio exercise (30 min. per day) like walking/hiking, running, biking, kick boxing, swimming, jumping jacks, aerobics, dancing and playing any games that uses a ball, will shed pounds, tone your body and keep it fit.
    Food is fuel, energy for the body, if you don’t exercise to burn the energy, it turns to fat…fasting or skipping meals lowers your metabolism and forces the body to hold on to calories/fat, causing headaches, fatigue and weakness…weight loss pills damage your organs leading to diabetes, kidney and heart disease, even death.
    Losing weight at a healthy pace along with exercising everyday you will feel and look so good. (over 30 lbs by sept)
    Here is a great site to target specific muscle groups for abs, butt, hips…
    Take it easy in the beginning to avoid overworked sore muscles.

    Tips for Loosing Weight

    minootoo

    You must count calories and at least in initial stages write down what you are going to eat and when then stay on that list. Your total calories for the week must not exceed, 1500 x 7 = 10,500 calories this will give you leave way to indulge at special occasions like wedding and parties, but you must write down what you eat and account for the calories latter and adjust the total intake next week.

    Please read my article on this subject and follow them.
    While at it build your body too, while reducing by doing body parts specific exercises.

    If you are not too old, then best way to reduce your weight is to increase your height.

    Vegetarians have a big advantage, in loosing weight, it cost less and they can satisfy the hunger more easily, some vegetables have only 1 calorie per pound, so they can fill themselves up with it before enjoying each meal, and never go hungry.

    Most people should take one a day water soluble multi-vitamins when on this program; they can be purchased at the pharmacy near you.

    Life Style Change Program for Loosing Weight

    Who needs to loose weight?

    Answer is simply not every one, only the over weight person.

    Who is over weight?

    This is simple, it is easy to find out and it is available on line, it is call Body Mass Index, and calculations are simple. According to this calculation if you find your self say only 10 pounds more, you may not be over weight. Remember every one is slightly different and you can just watch it, on your own and not let it get out of hand.

    What is the reason for being over weight?

    This is also simple, have doctor check you out for any physical or hormonal abnormalities. The doctor should be advising you of your ideal weight even though you have already figured out the ideal weight and you are seen a doctor because your weight is not where it should be according to BMI.

    Basic understanding of loosing weight.

    Every one uses calories at all time. There may be some exceptions to this rule, for most of us; the rate of use, even when we are resting, we use 65 calories per hour minimum. This comes to1560 calories per day. The actual range is between 65 and 100 calories per hour. This is consistent with heart rate of 60 to 80 bits per minute.

    Simply put any person eating only say 1500 calories a day will not put on any additional weight. At this level of calories consumption the person should loose some weight over long haul, depending on the individual rate of metabolism.

    What is a healthy weight loss?

    When one tries to loose weight, one should loose excess fat; there should be a healthy loss of weight. Loosing muscles tissue is unhealthy.

    How much is one pound of body fat?

    One pound of body fat weight is approximately same as one pound of butter. If you look at a one pound package of butter, you will see it contains between 3200 to 3600 calories. This means that each time a person burns 3600 more calories then what the person takes in, the person will loose one pound.

    How many pounds should a person loose in a month?

    Any one that is trying to trim down can figure out how long it took to put on the excess pounds. The fact is; it did not happen over night. It usually creeps up, but the person realizes one day suddenly.

    This is why a person should not be in a hurry to loose weight. The person should start at once but go slowly. Do not wait for New Year.

    Taking above in to consideration a person should not loose more then 2 pounds per month. If a person looses any thing more then that, chances are that the person will not be able to maintain the weight loss. It will take extra efforts to loose and it will take extra efforts to keep it off. Remember slow and steady wins the race.

    When an overweight person should start loosing weight?

    At once. The person should not be in a hurry to loose weight. The person should start at once but go slowly. Again do not wait for New Year.

    How does body react to weight lose?

    Any time there is depletion of fat beyond certain level, the body reacts by slowing down metabolism, so that it can build up fat. If the body is use to say 2000 calories per day and detects only 1500 calories per day for considerable length of time it reacts to the situation by reducing the rate of metabolism. When this happens one need to help body by increasing activity. Usually takes about four weeks for body to react.

    What is the relationship between body and body fat?

    Under ideal condition fat act as a reserved energy source for our body. Certain level of fat is good for healthy living and even may save our life in certain life threatening situations. Every one should have minimum required level of fat on their body.

    What if there is no weight loss at 1500 calories in take level?

    This is a rear occurrence. Do not panic. The body has slowed down the metabolism to such a great extent that you must help it. The only way to help is to increase activities, this means you have to exercise. You do not need to join Gym but you can go on an an half an hour walk every day or batter still engage in a power walk for same duration. Power walk burns 250 calories per hour and walk burns 100 calories per hour approximately.

    What is the importance of body fat for a female?

    Females require little more body fat then men. In the absence of certain required level of body fat, females are not able to function properly; in particular they may not be able to conceive. You can find lot more about this on internet.

    At 1500 calories intake per day what one must drink and eat?

    Drink

    One gallon of liquids most of witch should be in the form of water (zero calories).
    Calories should be accounted for all other liquids.

    Why water?

    Water is a universal solvent, means it dissolves almost every thing at least in very minute quantities. This helps purification of body.

    Eat

    What should be your proportionate in take of fat, Proteins and Complex Carbohydrates?

    This depends on what your need are.

    1.Need to reduce fat.

    Fat: 10 percent of 1500 calorie per day = 150 calories.
    Complex Carbohydrates: 30 percent of 1500 calories per day = 450 calories.
    Proteins: 60 percent of 1500 calories per day = 900 calories.

    2.Need more energy.

    Fat: 10 percent of 1500 calorie per day = 150 calories.
    Complex Carbohydrates: 40 percent of 1500 calories per day = 450 calories.
    Proteins: 50 percent of 1500 calories per day = 750 calories.

    3.Need to reduce weight only.

    Fat: 25 percent of 1500 calorie per day = 375 calories.
    Complex Carbohydrates: 25 percent of 1500 calories per day = 375 calories.
    Proteins: 50 percent of 1500 calories per day = 750 calories.

    4.Need to increase muscles bulk, but still reduce weight.

    Fat: 10 percent of 1500 calorie per day = 150 calories.
    Complex Carbohydrates: 15 percent of 1500 calories per day = 225 calories.
    Proteins: 75 percent of 1500 calories per day = 1125 calories.
    Exercise the muscles you want to develop, you can find right exercise on line, recommend use of light weights.

    Foot note: To take fat is so important, while reducing even fat, that it is included in all cases. If the fat is completely cut out, body will think of producing the fat, and will produce the fat by reducing metabolism, without fat in take, you may actually again weight even at lower than 1500 calorie level. You will feel run down and lethargic.

    How one must, drink and eat?

    Drink

    Every one may not be able to follow this regime.

    A 16 oz glass of water first thing in the morning will be very healthy start.
    If you need to stabilize your stomach before eating, you can have a glass of water just before each and every meal. This is the easiest way to meet your quota of gallon of liquids.

    Eat

    To day almost half the world is starving.

    In western culture. Standard healthy practice for long time was three warm square meals per day. No eating in between, but children were allowed night cap.

    All that has changed, present thinking is 5 to 6 times per day. Any way what practice one follows is up to them; to each his own.

    Another best practice will be a glass of water before bed time, nothing to eat for two hours before bed time.

    How do I know the calorie count for various drinks and food?

    If you are buying packaged items it is on the package.

    Go on the internet and find the calorie information.

    Lots of cook book now a days list calorie per serving.
    Use your best guess, in this method use higher figure then you have guessed.

    Well, despite the negative feedback & reviews, I’ve been trying the Souper Cabbage Soup diet which consists of 7 days. There is a healthy eating plan & exercise regime with it so I can’t see how it can be unhealthy. I started it yesterday & seems to be working a treat. I weighed myself this morning & have def lost weight already which is great! My start weight was 13.5st & now it’s 13st!!!! Moreover, that’s how much weight I’ve lost in ONE day with no exercise whatsoever!

    I would def recommend this plan & I’m going to stay on it until I reach my goal weight! I reckon it’s worth a go & once you’ve achieved your desired weight, just eat healthy.

    Hope this helps…x

    Rope Jumping! You will shed fat and it’s a full body workout. And it’s pretty fun too. It’s one of the best aerobic workouts you can do. You get the same effects as with running but faster with less impact. Assuming you are eating a proper diet, you will LOSE FAT and get fit. Like one of the other posters said, STAY AWAY FROM DIETS!! I say that because people tend to go back to their old eating habits once they lose the weight. Stick with foods that are healthy but you can live with eating long-term.
