Diets And Calories Of Foods

For most of us, our information concerning metabolism has related in one way or another to eating, in that we are told of metabolism-friendly foods, or metabolism unfriendly foods.

But really, while we may be basically aware that, all else being equal, a stalk of celery is better for your metabolism than fries with gravy, our understanding of diet and metabolism is pretty low.

To help overcome this, the following looks at some powerful and scientific diet-related tips that will boost your metabolism. Indeed, as you will soon learn, it is not merely what you eat that matters; it is when, and how, too.

So calories yes, the word calorie has a bad rap. We constantly come across low calorie or calorie reduced foods. And it is not uncommon to overhear someone gasp about the immense calorie content of certain foods, such as a rich and creamy desert, or a giant fast food burger.

All of this anti-calorie rhetoric has therefore made a lot of us pretty calorie-phobic; as soon as we see something that has lots of them, we run away. But is this wise?

Yes and no. Yes, it is wise in the sense that avoiding that double-layer chocolate fudge cake for dessert may be a good idea. The calories that come from the cake are really going to be the so-called empty calorie kind; which means there is no real nutritional value that your body can squeeze out and make use of.

But in the bigger picture, it is unwise for your metabolism to become calorie-avoidant.

    • ANSWER:
      Food is what we feed ourselves and unconsciously we need to feed our soul. You are, I believe, somehow messing up your diet of feeding your soul. You probably feel it in waking hours, also. Perhaps, you are feeling like are not pursuing something that will enrich-en you soul. Like a hobby or a career. You are missing out on something during waking hours and this is why you are regretting messing up your diet during your sleep hours.

  8. QUESTION:
    Question about negative calorie foods?
    Since your body needs at least 1200 calories to avoid going in to starvation mode…if you ate all negative calorie foods wouldn’t your body go in to starvation mode? Or even if you ate so much that you had -500 calories a day, but you ate 1,000 calories of other food, wouldn’t you only have 500 calories a day and go in to starvation mode? Or would the calories from the negative calorie foods count as your calories before you digested them to make them negative? Sorry if this is confusing…I just don’t quite understand how people go on negative calorie food diets and don’t go in to starvation mode!
    I do eat normally…I just have been hearing about people who do this but I don’t quite understand how they lose weight it seems ridiculous/

    • ANSWER:
      I would just eat normally to stop this confusion..and to make it simple, your body will go into “starvation mode” if it does not get it’s 1200 calories, regardless if it’s “negative”….help save the planet.

  12. QUESTION:
    Lowest Calorie, lowest fat, lowest sodium, etc. Foods with the most flavor?
    I’m getting ready to make a big run at losing 60 pounds of fat, then I’m thinking about replacing that fat with muscle but at the moment I’m focusing just on losing the fat through cardio and light strength training exercises.

    Anyway I’m needing suggestions on low calorie foods that have low to no sugar, fat, carbs, sodium, etc. to snack and eat on while I’m losing the weight.

    I hear from people that pickles are low in calories, which is true but the sodium is VERY high so those are to be eaten sparingly.

    Most so called diet foods are high in sodium, high in other things that I dont want to have in my body.

    So what are some suggestions? So far I know of apples and tuna.

    Thanks for your help!

    • ANSWER:
      Avacado is great-High calorie and loaded with “good” fat. Potatoes have lots of fiber and are a more high calorie vegetable. Cheese is also healthy and high fat. Whole grain pasta would be a good option, also high in fiber, protien, and calories.

      Avoid high calorie foods that offer no nutritonal value, such as sugary sweets and red meat.

      Good luck, I hope your little guy fattens up a little lol!

  16. QUESTION:
    Why are reduced calorie, low fat, and diet foods so expensive?
    I was at the grocery store today and the prices on these foods are outrageous! Especially the 100 calorie treats from Hostess and Nabisco the prices are through the roof!

    So why are “healthy” foods so much more expensive than junk foods? It’s hard to grab a bag of Baked Lays for when I can buy 2 bags of regular Lays for same price!

    • ANSWER:
      Hey i’ve never thought of it that way. I think healthy foods should totally be cheaper and the country’s obiesity level would go down.

  17. QUESTION:
    Is there a free website that names foods with calories? On a calorie diet and i need a list of foods.?
    On a calorie diet and i need a list of foods that have a calorie. Like if u right a name and it tells you how many calories it has. On a 1000 calorie diet.

    • ANSWER:
      calorieking.com is a good website. And also, I’d like to say that you should probably take in about 1200 calories. anything less than that isn’t too good for your body. as long as you eat healthy foods it is okay.

  18. QUESTION:
    If I eat foods high in fat/saturated fat, but consume less than 1200 calories, will I lose weight?
    I am currently on a 1200 calorie diet. If I eat foods high in fat and even saturated fat, but consume less than 1200 calories will I still lose weight? Example: If I eat 100 grams of fat but 1000 calories will I still lose weight or will I gain weight?

    • ANSWER:
      you will lose weight, but you will be losing muscle. That is a bad plan. You should cut most of the ft out of your diet, eat whole grains, fruits, vegetables, dairy, and lean meat like chicken breast. You should eat 1800-2100 calories and do lots of cardio exercise to lose body fat instead of muscle

  19. QUESTION:
    Can you help me answer a few questions about diet foods?
    I tried to do a little research but I couldn’t exactly find the answers I’m looking for;

    Right now I’m trying to lose around 15 pounds, 20 if I wanna go to the max. I’m not in a hurry and won’t kill myself over it, whether it takes 3 months or 6 months. I’m trying to list up all the healthier food that I enjoy to make up my own diet plan.

    1- How many calories are in 1 slice of low-fat Kashkaval Cheese?
    2- Which is better: Sugar Free Balsamic Dressing or Fat Free Balsamic Dressing. Do you have other suggestions for salad dressings? I must have something to moisten the salad.
    3- Would it be a good idea to put some zahatar with skimmed yoghurt to make it taste better? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Za%27atar
    4- Should I avoid any of the following fruits while trying to lose weight (I really hope not because these were the only ones I plan on eating, I abhor apples):
    Pomegranate, Honeydew (yellow melon), Watermelon, Peaches, Mandarins/Tangerines.
    5- I don’t have a grill, so would cooking a boneless/skinless chicken breast or fish fillet on a skillet with olive oil still be OK? How many calories is the difference?
    6- This is my fav whole grain cereal, good or bad?

    http://www.myfitnesspal.com/food/calories/nestle-fitness-corn-flakes-525385

    If it’s bad, please feel free to suggest something better. No Oatmeal or granola bars as I really don’t even like their texture, let alone the taste.

    Thank you for your time :)
    lol finalfantasy I was only asking about the zahtar because I don’t know whether it’s fattening or not :P It appears that you hate it but I actually like their taste with plain yoghurt :D

    • ANSWER:
      1. go to www.calorieking.com or my favorite www.mydailyplate.com and you can search calories in just about every food out there.

      2. I would think sugar free would be the better option. Usually sugar just adds unnecessary calories, and it is ok to have some fat in your diet. I like to use the salad spritzers by wish bone. I think 10 sprays are only 15 calories and it gives my salad what I need.

      3. Not sure about that one! I would check the sodium level on it though. If it is really high then I would say no. You could probably find out the info on one of the web sites I listed above.

      4. The only fruits I usually avoid are bananas. Only because they are so high in sugar and carbs.

      5. I cook mine in a skillet sometimes too. I don’t think it makes that big of a difference as far as calories go. You could also bake it at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes with some lemon juice on it and or some Ms Dash seasoning. Ms. Dash is all salt free.

      6. That cereal looks good to me. You should also try Kashi GoLean it has become my favorite. When choosing cereal check the ingredients and make sure it does not have any high fructose corn syrup. Try to keep the sodium level lower, not too much sugar, high in fiber and protein.

      Hope this helps a little! :)

  20. QUESTION:
    “Diet friendly foods?”?
    What are some good diet friendly foods. I’ve already heard of negative calorie foods, like fruit and vegetables, but I was looking more for side dishes.
    I’m looking for healthy dishes that are filling, but also low calorie and low in fat.

    • ANSWER:
      Slice some zucchini into a baking dish (overlapping), top with a can of diced tomatoes with italian seasoning and low fat shredded cheddar or mozzerella. Bake covered at 350 until zucchini is tender.

      Roasted red or yukon gold potatoes with a little olive oil, salt, pepper and, if you like it, rosemary.

      I like the spinach idea listed above – I do a similar one and it’s great.

      Spaghetti squash is good. Mashed cauliflower.

      Good luck!

  21. QUESTION:
    If I Eat Cabbage And Tomatoes, Will It Still Count As Diet Food?
    So i made a really yummy servings of cabbage and tomato sauce with it…
    I know (green) cabbage is a negative calorie food, great for a diet, but with the tomato sauce is it
    still okay to eat it on a diet?

    Be honest, Thanks. Full details on this will be appreciated !

    • ANSWER:
      yes. you can eat anything you want and you’ll lose weight, so long as you stay under 1,200 calories per day.

  22. QUESTION:
    Where to buy prepacked diet foods for less than a day?
    I want to go on a prepacked foods diet but I cant pay Jenny Craig or Nutrisystem prices. Does anybody know of any other places that have plans for less than a day? I need to lose 50 pounds and I’m not succeeding by buying my own foods from the grocery stores. I need exact calories, under 1200, and variety along with it.

    • ANSWER:
      sorry buddy thats pretty cheap for food per day. I spend – in groceries for myself. But these people are going to buy the food, cook it, package it, and ship it to you…plus make a profit on top of that. You aren’t gonna find much cheaper than Nutrisystem:

      http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=1uW3UXYEAEU&offerid=78173.10000195&type=3&subid=0

      I hear the meals from Nutrisystem aren’t too good tasting but you get what you pay for.
      Nutrisystem is 9.95 per month(free shipping and handling). And if you buy two months worth you get two free weeks.

      Also the 3 Hour Diet(is more expensive but I hear the food taste a lot better).

      http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=1uW3UXYEAEU&offerid=114812.10000013&type=3&subid=0

      3 Hour Diet is about 8(plus shipping and handling) per month with one additional week of free food.

      Sorry I don’t know much about Jenny Craig. But prepackage meals are expensive and the cheaper it is the more like crap its gonna taste.(I dont know if taste is a deciding factor for you though). Nutrisystem is cheaper but like I said the food doesn’t taste great and its deliveried monthly(therefore not too fresh), 3 Hour Diet is all natural, better tasting, and deliveried weekly for better freshness; but is CRAZY expensive.

      If you haven’t given up entirely on buying and cooking your own food:

      First you should eat every three hours. Constantly eating boost your metabolism. If you skip meals your body goes into “starvation” mode since it doesn’t know when it will be fed next whenever you do eat it stores extra fat.

      Remember you aren’t eating more calories you are eating the same(Well more precisely the recommended calories for your weight) but more often. Instead of three big meals, you’ll eat 5-6smaller meals. This boost your metabolism making weight loss easier.

      Also try not to eat late at night try to eat dinner by 7pm definitely no later than 9pm. This is what I hear from many people and my kickboxing coach and also my kickboxing book. “We’ve asked you to eat five times a day- don’t fret. You won’t gain fat, especially if you know a thing or two about basic nutrition. Remember that eating every three to four hours revs your metabolism, which is one way your body burns calories.” – The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Kickboxing by Karon Karter and Guy Mezger.

      Heres what the schedule should look like
      7am Breakfast
      10am Snack
      1pm Lunch
      4pm Snack
      7pm Dinner
      9-10pm Light Snack if still hungry. Or you can eat it right after your Dinner.

      Now as for what you should eat for these snacks and meals I’ll leave up to you here are some good ideas you can mix and match these meal items to create your own diet.

      Breakfast:
      1)Cereal with Low fat milk. Something like Special K, Cheerios, or Frosted Wheats.
      2)Oatmeal
      3)A few slices of turkey bacon, couple pancakes or few pieces of toast, a piece of fruit
      -A glass of 100% Juice. Usually the cheapest pure juice is apple or orange.

      Lunch:
      1)A sandwich take your pick ham, turkey, chick, beef, pb and j, just try to avoid too much mustard, mayo, or any other sauce. Slap on some low fat cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, or whatever veggie you like and enjoy. Oh yeah try wheat bread its a lot better for you.
      2)Also the same as making a sandwich buy a sub from Subway.
      You can eat the sandwich with a “Grab” size bag of baked chips.

      Dinner:
      1)Grilled or baked chicken breast or fish fillets seasoned it how you please. Remove the skin do not bread the chicken or fish, fry it, or add too much salt to it. Sides: Your choice of veggies: I personally love either corn or steamed broccoli.
      One baked potato avoid sour cream, adding a lot of butter, bacon bits. Try to keep it as close to a plain potato as possible. Or one potato chopped up and roasted with herbs is good too.
      2)Homemade Hard or Soft Tacos: Use ground turkey instead of ground beef(if you do decide to use beef use lean beef), Romaine or Green Leaf Lettuce(healthier than Iceberg), Tomatoes, 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Topped with salsa is you like, wrap in perferrably corn torilla (corn is slightly better than flour, but flour is ok) or place in taco shells.
      3)Grilled Hamburgers:Like before use ground turkey if not at least lean beef. Grill over charcoal it adds great flavor to the meat along with dripping off extra fat/grease if you dont not have a charcoal grill or time to grill look into getting an inside grill such as a George Foreman Grill though you do not have the same add taste from the charcoals you will still benefit from extra fats dripping off the meat. Use whole wheat buns. 2% milk cheese, and the extra veggie toppings you may like. Add additional condiments sparingly if at all. What good are hamburgers without french fries, huh? To avoid cook fries in a healthier way try frying them in olive oil(olive oil is pretty expensive though compared to corn/vegetable oil) or bake the fries in the oven. Place in a pan and use only a little vegetable oil to prevent fries from sticking and set oven to broil turning over when the fries are golden brown. The fries will be healthier than deep frying them and still have that crunchy crispy fried taste.
      4)Big salad with grilled chicken. Watch the salad dressing that usually screws people up.
      5)I’m not a big fan of red meat but you can eat it every so often, try to get lean beef or pork and go for grilling or baking it similar to the chicken and fish. Serve with your sides of veggies you like.

      Snacks:
      1)1-2 servings of fruit or veggies. Celery, Apples, Bananas, Raisins, just to name a few.
      2)Handful of nuts lightly salted.(My favorite cashews)
      3)Grab size bag of baked chips
      4)2 oatmeal cookies(iced or raisin are fine too)
      5)1 bag of 100 calorie snacks. They come in snacks flavors like Oreos.
      6)My favorite: a fruit smoothie. I usually go to Sonic they have great strawberry banana smoothies and I see they just started a Double Berry smoothie I need to go try. And of course you can make your own smoothies at home if you wish.
      7)Yogurt
      8)Small salad
      9)Airpopped popcorn is actually pretty good for you. Its not until you add the butter and salt that its becomes unhealthy.
      10)Granola bars

      Drinks
      -You need to drink at least 8 glasses of water throughout the day.
      -Try to drink one cup of white or green tea. I personally like Snapple’s White Tea infused with Strawberry you can buy the packages and brew at home within minutes.(Unsweetened)
      -I know if you have the urge how hard it is to cut out all bad foods from your diet so for dinner you can have one diet soda or glass of crystal light
      -Try to drink only 100% juice many “juices” out there are only about 20% real juice. Even then drink sparingly because many juices have a lot of sugar regardless.(You may want to try reduce sugar juices)

      Try to think of it not as much of a change of “diet” than a change of your lifestyle. Most people only change their diet to reach their weight loss goals, then they end up gaining it back. You have to actually change your eating habits permenatly and healthily to keep yourself at the proper weight.

      If you want to keep trying to cook your own food but keep more easily track your caloric intake I suggest the 5 factor diet. Its the same thing I said before about eating 5 times a day, but they’ll give you recipes and a log so you can monitor exactly how many calories you are intaking along with a custom fitness plan.

  24. QUESTION:
    Does the concept of negative calories really work?
    I was talking with a friend about dieting, and she told me that certain foods burn more calories (energy) to be digested than they add to your body, thus creating a negative calorie effect. What I mean is, these foods don’t add calories, they actually use calories to be able to be digested, but make you feel full at the same time. Has anyone tried a diet based on negative calorie foods, and was it effective?

    • ANSWER:
      There actually is a diet called the Negative Calorie Diet and believe it or not, it does work – sort of. I have an article on my website about this diet and why you don’t want to follow it even though it works to a degree. I’ve provided the link to the article below.

      The Negative Calorie Diet is based on the idea that some foods cause you to burn more calories digesting these foods than the actual calorie content of the food itself.

      It’s true that some foods raise your metabolic rate more than others do. Carbohydrate and protein, for example, contain about four calories per gram. But, the thermic effect of protein is far greater than that of carbohydrate.

      In other words, some of the energy in each gram of protein is wasted as heat during the process of digestion and metabolism. While all this sounds great, here is the downfall of this diet.

      If you rely on this diet alone, you will probably lose a little weight but it won’t last long. The reason is because most of the weight you’ll lose will be water and muscle – not fat (which is what you want to lose). The bottom line is this diet is just another “fad diet” that you should stay away from if you are looking for long term weight loss.

  25. QUESTION:
    Im 38 and my weight is180 at 5’0..I want to try a 500 calorie diet..What foods do I eat?
    I would like a list of things i can get on a daily basis.

    • ANSWER:
      Thats an unhealthy ammount of calories to consume, something along the lines of 1000 would be better. You will never be able to maintain a 500 calorie diet so once you stop the diet you will regain any weight u lost. You do that you will lose hair and age quicker eating that little. Regardless, low calorie foods that you should be eating would be any vegetables: lettuce, aspargus, green beans, spinach, fruits, eggs, beans, brown rice, lean meats like chicken and fish (you need proteins to maintain muscles especially if working out), and whole grains, rice cakes, granola bars, yogurt ect. Try and stay away from or cut down on red meats, white bread, white rice, pasta, obviously cookies chips and crackers, dairy (especially whole milk/icecream), alcohal, high sugar juices and sodas, thick dressing on salads. Rember dieting and excersicing go hand and hand, you can’t get healthier with out effort in both, good luck

  26. QUESTION:
    what are some foods and meal ideas to add up to 800 calories a day?
    My doctor put me on a TEMPORARY diet of 800 calories a day. How can I pack the maximum amount of nutrients into those calories? What foods/meals/menu ideas would be good? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Make lots of broth-based vegetable soups. Go on the internet and look for recipes, but most broth-based soups are simple, flavorful, low-calorie and best of all, filling! Try different variations. For example, Chinese hot and sour soup only takes chicken broth, rice vinegar, soy sauce, hot sauce and an egg but is very flavorful. Borscht (or beet soup) is a very flavorful vegetable soup and if you veggie it up, and leave off the sour cream, it’s very good.

      Also, I used to expand my oatmeal serving by adding a tablespoon of wheat bran to it while cooking. It adds fiber, which you’ll need on an 800 calorie diet but doesn’t hurt the flavor. Just add cinnamon and sweetener to your oatmeal, diet margarine if allowed and there’s breakfast. Or if no marg, Butter Buds can add buttery flavor at very low calories.

      Low cholesterol egg substitute will give you protein at significantly lower calories than eggs. I usually top my scrambled ‘eggs’ with salsa for added flavor. Salsa can also double as a salad dressing and you will probably be eating lots of salads. Don’t be afraid to add pickled vegetables or cooked veg to your salads for variety.

      Other low calorie protein options are tofu and textured vegetable protein (or veggie meat). Either one can be added to tomato sauce to top your pasta. Ideally, your spaghetti sauce has lots of veggies and a bunch of TVP (it expands in liquid, tastes like burger, has no fat and very few calories), then serve it over a small portion of pasta. You won’t notice the difference.

      Good luck. And here is a good borscht recipe:
      Ingredients:
      1 can diced beets with juice
      1 small head cabbage, chopped
      1 large can chicken or beef broth
      1 bag frozen mixed vegetables
      1 large can chopped tomatoes with juice
      couple pinches of dried dill weed
      1/2 diced onion

      Heat broth, onions, dill weed and tomatoes with juice. Add beets with juice, frozen veggies and cook for a while. Add cabbage last. Cook til cabbage is crisp tender. Soup should be a dark pink.

  27. QUESTION:
    Very low calorie snacks and foods for a 1200 cal daily diet?
    Im on a 1200 cal a day diet. What foods are low calorie and healthy?

    Other than bananas,orages,apples,spinish,carrots,lettuce,celery

    I also found a bag of cherios is a great snack..
    What else have you found is low calorie?

    • ANSWER:
      Don’t eat bannanas, it has the most sugar out of any other fruit and it is the fattiest one. Best fruit to eat are raspberries. Yeah cherrios are a great snack if you only want like 2 bites! Have you looked at the serving size? 3/4 cup is NOTHING! measure it if you don’t believe me. So no, cherrios isn’t good. But product 19 is a great cereal but you can’t have alot of it though. a glass of fat free milk is very filling and only 90calories.
      Celery sticks are good.
      A cup of tea has 0 cals and is absolutely warming and filling.

      Not much choices but remember something can be low calorie but you have to look at the serving size and the rest like fat and stuff. Some thing can have 100 cals and 10g of fat which will make you gain weight no matter what. Having 1200 cals a day doesnt mean just eating junk, to lose weight you have to only eat veggies, fruits, lean meats, and very few healthy carb that are whole wheat.

      Good luck=)

  28. QUESTION:
    Should I be forced to buy my “diet food”?
    Okay i’m 14 years old and i’m on a 1,100 calories a day diet. So i’m going to need some “healthy, lower calorie foods” Well, my mom refuses to buy my various foods, (light Pringles, strawberries,non fat yogurt, lean cuisine meals, 100 calorie packs, ect.) because they are too “expensive” and “unnecessary”. She says I either eat what she buys or I don’t eat at all.

    So, i’m using my own money (that I got for my birthday, and that I got for my grades) on food that SHE should be buying, i mean after all she is the adult in the house. So should I be forced to buy my “special” foods, or should my Mom at least pitch in and buy some of them?

  30. QUESTION:
    establish 1300 calorie diet…food ideas?
    I have decided to loose weight and I want to do it fast. As a result, I have decided to go on a 1300 calorie diet. I understand that it is a small amt of calories – however, I need to do this. I exercise everyday whether it be at the gym doing the bike and running or simply taking a jog around the block. I just to fit something in – somehow. However, the food part beats me. I need food ideas or rather a meal plan that only contains 1300 calories and gives me three meals. Basically no restrictions on foods or anything. I need plans and I foods that can remain in this tight net. I drink plenty of water everyday however my belly is getting big and im short so it looks horrible. IF any nutritionists could help that would help. I just need particular foods that still sustain the limits. Thanks a lot.

    • ANSWER:
      I just started a 1300 calorie diet. My advice would be to write down everything you eat and drink on a food log and make sure to total the calories. Here’s what I’ve been eating (I’m vegetarian but you can add meat):

      Morning:
      1 glass of water
      2 tbs purely protein powder with 1 cup soy milk, blended. This is around 173 calories with approx. 23 grams of protein. This keeps me full for a long time.

      Snack: 1 and 1/2 cup of random mixture of fruit. This is approx. 100-140 calories.

      Lunch: 1 cup of vegetable soup (around 110-90 calories), salad with raisons, walnuts, grape tomatoes, blue cheese and honey balsamic vinegar with olive oil. (Approx. 250) Glass of water.

      Snack: 100 calories South Beach Diet bar with 6 grams of protein.

      Dinner: 1 cup of brown rice cooked (216 calories), vegetable stir fry with 1 tbs of olive oil (180 calories) and tempeh (my version of meat) with soy sauce (55-70). Glass of water

      Snack: 100 calorie snack like a low fat yogurt cup

      This will get you to approximately 1,300 give or take 30 calories or so. I also keep track of my protein intake and I average around 50 grams of protein per day with this diet. If you find yourself still hungry, my advise is to drink a glass of water whenever you feel hunger pangs. It works!

  32. QUESTION:
    Why is it so important to intake lots of calories following wisdom tooth surgery?
    I am having a hard time intaking 3000 calories a day and as a result I am healing slowly. I am 5’5″ and 140 and I thought I ate pretty well before but to intake 3000 calories on a soft food diet? This is especially hard because I have nerve damage in my jaw and it is very painful to eat, but netherless he wants me to forcefeed myself. He wouldn’t let me leave hs office without drinking a milkshake!!.
    So why is good nutirition so important following oral surgery. I know ‘so you can get better faster’ but why is this? Why does the amount of calories matter? Will I gain weight? (If I can even eat this much) or will the calories be used in other ways to heal myself instead?

    • ANSWER:
      Your body is mending & reparing the damage/traums caused by the surgery, & extra calories are needed.
      You can try buying some liquid Ensure Plus, or Sustical HC. You really do need the extra nutrition to help your body heal properly.

  34. QUESTION:
    Dieting and always hungry! Low calorie foods?
    I just started dieting, keeping my food intake to 1200 calories a day and I’m always hungry! I’ve been having slim fast bars in the mornings which are 220 calories a piece, and then my 100 calorie snacks during the day like they say, which only leaves me 500 calories or so at dinner and I’m always still hungry after dinner. Is there anything that I can add or replace in my meal plan to make better use of my calories?

    • ANSWER:
      1200 calories is wayyy too low unless you currently weigh 100lbs. but if you weighed 100lbs you probably wouldn’t be dieting. so you are always hungry because you are technically starving yourself.

      you can make better use of calories by dieting correctly. multiply your current bodyweight by 12. THAT is how many calories you should be eating to effectively diet. unless you are morbidly obese, then other factors need to be used to determine proper caloric intake.

      good luck!

    What are some good diet foods that are healthy for a 1500 calorie a day diet? I really don’t like a lot of veggies, just a few….but I do like meat. Can you eat bread? I’m just not sure what to buy and I am on a budget so inexpensive foods also.

    • ANSWER:
      in the following tips u can find the things u want.
      1)The very first thing u should keep in your mind and that is the extra weight u put on didn’t come in overnight so it is not possible and also unrealistic to take it off quickly. You have to show patience.
      2)The 2nd important thing is that your body weight is controlled by the number of calories you eat and the number of calories you use each day. So, if you consume fewer calories than you burn, you will lose weight. You can do this by becoming more physically active or by eating less.
      3)The 3rd important thing is never skip ur meal or go to a crash diet. Don’t ever try to starve urself. It is very important to understand that when you skip a meal or go on a crash diet, the result is that it slows your metabolism to conserve your energy. And when you lose weight too quickly for a few days, your body thinks it is threatened with starvation and goes into survival mode. It fights to conserve your fat stores. There fore keep in mind never try to skip ur meal, especially breakfast and always try to take food on time
      4)Before starting any type of diet, weight yourself and note ur whole body measurement in a dairy. Then after every week weigh your self again and compare with earlier measurements and see how much weight u r losing. Record a goal that you can reach in one month that is 4 to 8 pounds less than you weigh now. Set a goal you know you can achieve.

      Now some tips how to set ur diet plan.
      5)Start taking your food with out any oil. Try to use boiled/steamed vegetables, meat, and lot of salad. U can eat fruits too and boiled/steamed chicken or red meat too but no pork. Please note and put it in ur mind that nothing fried or oily.
      6)Try to chew ur every food for atleast 20 times. And then swallow it into ur stomach.
      7)No Potato Please. It is strictly forbidden during this diet
      8)No Junk Food Please.
      9)Drink at least 3 ltr of water daily. Make ur habit to drink water as much as u can. Rather take a bottle of water with you all the time, when you feel starving, drink it as much as u can.
      10)Make you habit to use brown bread.
      11)use skimmed and low fat milk and yogurt
      12)Sugar is strictly forbidden in this diet plan.
      13)First try to avoid any type of soft drink but if u really wants to taste some thing sweet then drink any soft drink (but not cola), but just one glass once in a week.
      14)Eat at least once in a day a vegetable soap or Thai soup ( as ur dinner or lunch), as much as u can but no corn flour in it.
      15)Just look at your food portion. It is much better to eat several small meals a day (like 5-6 healthy meals a day) than eat either one or two or three huge meal a day.
      16)if u feel hungry then divide ur diet into 5-6 healthy meals a day (1 plate size only)
      17)one bowl of oatmeal can be taken as a break fast
      18)No hard drink of any type is allowed in this diet.
      19)Smoking strictly forbidden in this diet
      20)Watch out ur every drink and every single piece of ur food. Stay away from fatty foods, junk foods, synthetic foods, foods with preservatives and too much carbohydrate.

      26)Never ever go for any type of Diet pills or any drug which claim that it will reduce the weight quickly. Taking Diet pills will kill.
      27)Exercise: Rule-of -Thumb: remember the formula for weight loss and that is Diet= 70% Exercise= 30%. So remember exercise is must with every diet plan.

Run on tread mill for at least 30 mnts daily. Try to extend ur period for one hour. And if you don’t have this facility then best indoor Exercise is skipping.

      Guidelines, approximately 30% of daily intake should be fat.
      Protein should make up approximately 15% of your total daily caloric intake, also according to the RDA. In a diet of 1,800 calories a day, for example, about 270 of those calories should come from protein.
      Best carbohydrates are from rice, pasta, wholegrain products, fruit, vegetables

  42. QUESTION:
    What type of foods are considered empty calories?
    I am trying to lean up and get more cut and would like to eliminate or reduce certain foods in my diet.

    • ANSWER:
      Empty calorie foods are low in nutrition and have high caloric intake. These foods are refined foods, highly process, or even fried foods. Examples include starchy crackers, fries, and sugar candy.

      Check out this website;

      http://www.healthcastle.com/empty-calories-foods.shtml

      French fries, fried chicken, chips and all other deep-fried foods

      A large order of fries from a fast food chain can contain up to 570 kcal with a whopping 30 g of total fat and 8 g of trans fat! Tons of calories from fat but little micro-nutrients.

      Candy, pop and other sweetened packaged foods

      A can of pop provides ~130 kcal as well as additives and colorings. Again lots of calories from sugar but no micro-nutrients.

      Beer, wine and all other alcoholic beverages

      A can of beer provides ~150 kcal from sugar and not much anything else. In addition, calories from alcohol tend to be stored as fat in the abdomen.

      Refined grains such as crackers, cookies, white rice and white bread

      Refined grains do provide some B vitamins, however that’s it.

  43. QUESTION:
    the absolute best diet foods?
    I’m planning on losing about 25 lbs. over the course of about 3 months, give or take a few days. I’m completely dedicated to whatever it takes, exercising, etc. I just need tips on the absolute best foods to eat while I diet to lose weight the most efficiently. I know all that stuff about fiber, etc. I just need the actual names of the best foods for me to eat up to 1000-1200 calories a day. I know, I know, I should be getting at least 1200 blah blah and it’s not healthy for only 1000 colories or your body thinks you’re starving it– tell me something I don’t know: what are the absolute best foods for a diet to lose about 10 pounds each month.

    • ANSWER:
      Various studies have shown that a high fiber – low fat diet is the best for weight loss. To simplify it, a vegetarian diet. Almost all plant based foods are high fiber and low fat, while animal foods are higher in fat and NO fiber. (Muscle fibers of an animal do not count as dietary fiber.)

      If it grown out of the dirt and does not move on its own or have a mother, then you can eat it, but avoid highly processed foods such as white bread, rice and pasta. Also avoid everything that came from or that was part of an animal.

      I know you want a list of particular items, but it will be better to get a variety so that you avoid becoming nutritionally unbalanced. Most people will say that you must get your proteins from an animal, but all plant foods contain at least a little bit of protein, and the body can make its own protein from the amino acids in fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts.

      A couple of other things. Do not snack between regular meals. Do not drink sodas, sports drinks or fruit juices, these are the source of the greatest number of empty calories and are associated with weight gain. Do not use diet sodas, they also cuntribute to weight gain. Drink only water between your meals (about 3 quarts a day), but not with your meals; this will slow your digestion. And eat two meals a day – breakfast and lunch.

      The people that come to the facility where I work lose an average of 4 pounds a week. The weight loss is faster when you also exercise regularly.

      This really works for the patients that I work with, and it is the way I live.

  45. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the negative calorie diet?
    I’ve always had trouble losing weight. I would do well for a few weeks but jump back into making poor food choices and it’s been difficult finding time to workout. I briefly heard about food that have “negative” calories. There are certain fruits and vegetables that count as negative calorie foods, but does it work? I have increased my fruit and vegetable intake for the past few days, but I’m scared to make the majority of my diet with negative calorie foods. For those who have tried it, was there any discomfort? Stomach aches? Did you lose weight quickly?

    • ANSWER:
      I wrote extensively about negative foods and the negative calorie effect in one of my newsletters, here I’m taking some snippets of it so you can get the information you need:

      Some foods require more energy to metabolize than the energies you get from them, that’s called the “negative calorie effect”.
      A simple example is water.
      You drink water and you get 0 calories but it takes you some energy to swallow, warm to body temperature, etc

      There are also other foods which although they provide calories,
      the amount provided is less than your Basal Metabolic Rate.
      The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the amount of energy
      you need to do the basic and vital stuff like breathing, circulation, etc.

      Remember that a diet consisting only of Negative Calorie Foods, will result in you
      getting your energy requirements from your muscles. This will mean
      a reduction in muscle mass (that will be burned out) and a decreased metabolic rate,
      thus making it more difficult to lose weight.
      An healthy diet plan uses items from all the main food groups which
      are needed to get all the nutrients to make the building blocks of your body.

      So always use Negative Calorie Foods as part of and to aid a
      balanced calorie-wise diet.
      It’s not smart to make it your only food choice, you do NEED to have calories in your diet!

      Here is the list of Negative Calorie Foods:

      * Apples
      * Asparagus
      * Beets
      * Blueberries
      * Broccoli
      * Cantaloupes
      * Carrot
      * Cauliflower
      * Celery stalk
      * Celery root
      * Cranberries
      * Cucumbers
      * Eggplant
      * Endives
      * Garlic
      * Grapefruit
      * Green beans
      * Green cabbage
      * Lamb’s lettuce
      * Lemons
      * Lettuce
      * Onions
      * Papayas
      * Pineapples
      * Prunes
      * Radishes
      * Raspberries
      * Spinach
      * Strawberries
      * Tangerines
      * Tomatoes
      * Turnips
      * Zucchini

  47. QUESTION:
    What are some high calories foods for gaining weight?
    I’ve been losing weight? But regardless of the cause (I have no idea why, whatever…) I need to gain. I’ve been eating peanut butter like constantly (seriously carrying a jar everywhere) and drinking milk. I’ve tried adding more eggs to my diet too..
    There’ve been some breads and fruit also.
    I’ve started working out more too a bit..

    I’m 5’4″ and 101lbs.
    Yeah, how do you get fat? fattER. I mean.

    • ANSWER:
      At your current weight, I’d recommend 1600 calories to start with. 4-5 meals if you can.

      1/3 from protein 1/3 from carbs 1/3 from fats to keep it simple.

      Eat like this for two weeks. If you gain weight, cool, stay there. If you do not gain weight, add 250 calories every day. Eat like that for two weeks. etc etc
      This is called Outcome Based Decision Making and is very useful when trying to gain quality weight or dieting even.

      Peanut butter is great isn’t it? I always eat all natural peanut butter or raw almond butter. That is very addictive!

      good luck

  48. QUESTION:
    Calories in VS calories out?
    Do you REALLY have to eat diet food to lose weight?
    …think about it…
    Let’s say I’m doing a 1,500 calorie (and under) diet. If I eat 1,500 calories of junk food, then wouldn’t I STILL lose weight?
    People lose weight from burning MORE calories than they eat, right?

    So, would it work if I ate 1,500 calories in junk food?

    • ANSWER:
      You would lose weight, but be extremely unhealthy and lethargic

  49. QUESTION:
    What are some healthy foods for a diet of 1,200 calories a day?
    I’m curious to know what healthy people are eating & how they maintain their weight.
    I do exercise everyday, I’m just not sure as to what to eat in order to be healthy & getting the right fats and protein everyday.

    • ANSWER:
      I eat steaks and fruit.

  50. QUESTION:
    Can someone tell me more about the Negative Calorie diet?
    I wanna start the negative calorie food diet. I heard it really works, cuz a few of my moms friends tried it out, and they look Ahmazing! (compared to what they used to loose like Lol) But I wanted a full list of foods that are negative calorie, and can anyone tell me the rules to this? Like only eat 500 calories a day prior to the negative foods something like that… A website would be great!

    And i’m not looking for anyone to tell me they don’t exist.. They do, and i wanna try it thanks :]

    • ANSWER:
      They actually don’t exist, all food has calories. They call them negative calorie foods because they take the same or more calories to digest them than they have in them.

      Celery, cabbage, watermelon, cukeumbers and a number of other veggies fit the bill. Look online for calorie contents to check out foods you want to eat and see if they’ll work. You are looking for foods with less than 15 calories per serving. I wouldn’t want to diet like that though…

  3. QUESTION:
    Is anyone else pi$$ed off about diet tracker disappearing?
    Why the heck would they discontinue the diet tracker on My Yahoo without any notice? I have been tracking my weight loss there for over 6 years and now all my data has disappeared. Now, I realize that I should have kept hard copies somewhere else, but either way…some warning would have been nice!

    GRRRRR…..

    Does anyone else feel the same way I do?

    • ANSWER:
      YES!! I am very upset. AT&T gave an option that you have to pay for. Why not just leave it alone.

  4. QUESTION:
    Dieting right. Why am I gaining weight?
    I have faithfully been following the same diet and exercise plan for the past few months with great success. I have not fallen prey to any of the fad diets and am simply reducing portion sizes and caloric intake while making sure to eat a healthy variety of nutrients and taking a multivitamin to fill in any gaps. I also religiously go to the gym. My workouts rotate large muscle groups worked and switch between strength and cardio training to prevent muscle boredom.

    Also, it is important to not that my goals are not purely aesthetic. This year I plan to make the jump from my previous accomplished half marathons to full marathons. I know that I need to be in peak shape and weight to accomplish such a feat.

    About 2 weeks ago I was nearing my weight and body fitness goal of 106 lbs. I know that sounds very light, but as I am under 5 feet tall that leaves me with a BMI perfectly in the middle of the normal range (21.4). My body was strong and toned, and I was up to my previous peak cardiovascular ability. At this point, I did gain about a pound when I celebrated an early Thanksgiving with family, but I thought that would be the end of it.

    I have spent the following 2 weeks on my normal diet and exercise plan where I typically had been losing 1.5-2 pounds per week. Unfortunately, now I am gaining weight like crazy. In these two weeks I have somehow managed to pack on just under 6 pounds! That may not sound like much, but to somebody of my small stature, it is a lot.

    I use livestrong’s weight tracker to calculate my caloric need based on my current weight, and I track every single thing that I intake and every step of exercise that I do. I also weight myself daily and have bi-weekly weight and BMI measurements done at my local gym, so I know this gain is substantial and correct.

    My question to other athletes out there, have any of you run into this type of problem? I know that weight loss plateaus happen and have experienced them in the past, but I have never gained weight so rapidly in my life. Not even during my off season of running when I am pounding down the big macs!

    If anybody has any advice as to what I can do to prevent more gain and get myself headed back in the right direction please share! After months of training, I am feeling very discouraged to have regained almost half my weight loss in such a short time period. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what could be going on with my body? My measurements have all stayed pretty consistent with the exception of my stomach, I look almost bloated!

    In addition I would like to answer some of the questions my fitness coach and I have already discussed:
    1) No, I am not on any new medications or experiencing any undo stress or depression.
    2) No, I am not having any other health problems, and am not pregnant (it’s really depressing when your coach has to ask you that, by the way).
    3) No, I have not changed any aspect of my diet or fitness plans with the exception of having one Thanksgiving dinner 2 weeks ago- something we both agreed should not have caused this type of gain.
    4) No, I have not been putting on significant muscle mass above my current amount.
    5) No, I have not drastically increased my water or salt intake to account for water weight.

    Help! I start running on January 1 (like I always do) and I need to have this under control. Please do not suggest fad dieting or anything of that nature to me. Remember, my ultimate goal is that of fitness and I do not want to do anything to sacrifice my body’s health!

  5. QUESTION:
    Free Weight Loss help?
    I am looking for an online diet and exercise tracker that is easy to understand and free. The one I was previously using was great except that it calculated my calorie intake wrong. It had me on a 1200 calorie diet and according to other sites it should be higher than that. Any suggestions and links would be helpful.
    I really only want a calorie tracker that is accurate

  6. QUESTION:
    Weight loss eating 600 calories?
    Hey, I’m a 17 year old girl. I weigh 148 lbs and I’m about 5’2″. My measurements are 38C-30-40 and I can’t quite wear a size 10 pants……I’m trying to get to 115 – 122 lbs, and size 6-8, and I want my 27 inch waist back. I want to drop 15 lbs by Halloween.

    I’m currently doing a diet plan called the “rotation diet” where you eat 600 calories for three days, 900 calories for four days, 1200 calories for a week, then repeat, then have a week off where you don’t count your calories. My normal caloric intake is about 1000 calories, maybe a little more. This diet has been approved by doctors here – http://www.chasefreedom.com/rotationdiet.html (It has worked for me in the past. I lost several pounds FAST with it and I didn’t gain my weight back after I stopped the diet)

    So, I eat lots of fruits, vegetables, eggs and nuts for protein (vegetarian) and low-fat dairies. I drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. No soda. No juice, and sometimes some green tea.

    My workout is this:

    I play DDR for an hour to an hour and a half every day. I use the calorie tracker, on the hardest difficulty, and there’s an option to increase the speed of the arrows and I usually play with it 2x the speed. I play until the calorie tracker says I burn about 1000 calories. I know that’s far too high, so I’m guessing it’s more like 500?

    I do my Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred Workout DVD, and I’m going to start walking on my treadmill for 10 minutes every day. I’ll work it up slowly to 20 minutes of running (that’s all I have time for in the morning) and I’ll probably do a half hour routine of weights+cardio every other day.

    Will i lose weight this way?
    I will slowly add my calories back AAAAAAND I already said, I did that once and lost weight. Jeez.

  7. QUESTION:
    DDR for weight loss??????????????
    I’m 5’2″ and I weigh about 148 lbs. My goal is to lose 25 lbs by the New Year.

    I’ve recently discovered that my diet contains too many carbs, and I’m cutting them out and increasing my protein in take as I was suggested to do so. I eat vegetables, low-fat dairies, nuts, fruits, etc etc. So I eat well.

    I have no real way to do a ton of cardio exercises. I can’t go out running, my parents won’t let me. I can’t go to a track, or join a sport or a gym either. My parents won’t let me. I HAVE to do with stuff at home and that’s it.

    I have a treadmill, but I’m not very good at it. I AM gonna start using it for about 10 minutes every morning and slowly build my endurance up on it. Not good enough, I know.

    For my main cardio work out, I do DDR. I play it for about an hour after school, and according to the calorie tracker on it, I burn 600 calories. Then I have other things I have to do, then I eat supper, and then I do it for another 45 minutes and burn 400 calories. Could I lose weight with that?
    Also, every other day, after my evening DDR workout, I do a 20 minute workout that’s 6 minutes of strength training, 2 minutes of abs, and 2 minutes of cardio, and then I repeat.
    I might also add my Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD to my workout.

    Im dieting, …?
    What is the best time of day to record your weight loss or gain, Im on this diet and I have a weight tracker scale, but I need to know whats the best time of day to get the correct weight loss, cos I weigh myself in the morn and the night and its two different numbers…

    • ANSWER:
      First thing in the morning is best… it might be good to only weigh yourself once a week, because there are minor fluxuations from day to day, and you will see more of an average if you weigh week to week.

      Chix_Mix – you seem to be getting too few calories if you are only eating 1,000. Your body is prone to go into starvation mode with that few. You should be eating at least 1,200 calories to get all the nutrients that you need. And, if you are working out and burning 1,500 calories a week, you probably need to eat at least 1,400 calories a day. I would highly suggest running your routine past a TRAINED PROFESSIONAL, not the Yahoo! Answers board, since that is an extreme diet.

  11. QUESTION:
    Constipation/Food Fear/ Exercise/ Diet Woes. Please help me?
    Name: Kaytlin
    Age: 14
    Height: 5 feet 4.5 inches
    weight: anywhere from 105-155. 105 is what i assume is my real weight. (ps i weigh myself in the morning before i eat, but it fluctuates throughout the day to as high as 115, but on some days it starts out that high)

    Activity level: Sedentary-lightly active. Please tell me if i’m wrong about this one- I go to an hour long zumba class every other day. Zumba is basically high intensity dance aerobics (there is some debate whether it is high intensity or not, but all i know is i give it my all, and by half way through my hair is drenched!)
    On off days, i do 45 minutes of zumba at home, or i run a mile. On both of those days i do about 10 minutes of normal bodyweight strength exercises like pushups, crunches, squats, etc. The reason i said sedentary-lightly active is because I often do have days where i have no motivation to move. at all.

    Background: around march/april of 2010 i began weight loss journey, by following the South Beach Diet. Phase one of this diet restricts all carbs, except those found naturally in vegetables, and all dairy. I continued the phase for about 4 weeks, which is two weeks longer than normal. I followed phase 2 well beyond when i needed to, and mid-freshman school year, i began to eat more carbs. I still try to limit carbs on sedentary days, but i dont think thats bad.

    at around September of 2010, the beginning of the school year, i noticed that i had really bad gas and gas bloat. Soon after, the constipation came. It’s been pretty terrible since then. For a while it was so bad that i couldnt exercise. I began taking laxatives, which were a nightmare. I gave up on that. Now, i can have bowel movements everyday, however they are small, and very difficult to get out. Often times i make myself very full of liquid because the force of the urinating forces those muscles to really push it out. Every few days, It becomes Diarrhea, but only for one movement. it doesnt continue for the rest of the day. It smells like toxic waste.

    My parents believe, and my doctor too, and i guess i agree, that this could have come from lack of calories. For a while, i was eating less than 500-600 calories a day. By december, i was down to 105 lbs. I used to be 139, at the beginning of my journey. I began to use a tracker and i now track all my nutrients. here’s where it gets very very problematic.

    I’m scarred mentally by food. I’m afraid of it, yet, not at the same time. At the very same time, i’m obsessed with it. I’m constantly getting into the fridge and “tasting” everything. Then i’m not sure how much i’m eating. I know i’m still not eating enough to be too much, but its a bad, and a very scary habit. I’ll binge on things that i know wont do damage to my diet, like an entire 8 cup bag of spinach. I try and eat the right amounts of fat and protein every day, but i usually eat under 1000 calories, and i pretty much never go over 1200 calories. I KNOW this is bad, but the reason i fear it is because i have gained fat and gotten flabby. I have been told time and time again that this is BECAUSE i dont eat enough, but i cant let myself solve the problem. I know if i eat more, i’ll initially gain weight, and even if i can fix it later, i’m just so so so so scared of it. I got healthy, skinny, fit, and i exercised obsessively and then after i got lazier, and started losing too much weight, and then putting on flab, i got really really freaked out. I cant control my brain!

    Ok now i have questions about diet. This is for my ideal diet, so i know im not eating good now, but how does this sound?

    1,800 calories on active days, 30 percent fat, 20 percent protein, 50 percent carbs
    1,600 calories on non active days, 25 percent carbs, and then idk for protein and fat. do you need MORE fat on non active days, or more protein? cause i would eat less carbs on non active days, but i’d need to make up for the calories.
    This is for maintaining, by the way.

    If i’m totally wrong, can someone suggest a diet plan based on my activity and such?

    Also, a few more questions….

    If i start eating more, WILL i gain weight? if i do, is it just because my body is catching up and then i can lose it again?

    Do you really think i’m gaining weight? is it even possible to gain weight eating under 1000 calories? I cant really tell because of the constipation, but i feel flabbier and just, different…

    Is there a way to gain muscle without gaining fat, or better yet, gain muscle and LOSE fat? believe it or not, i have excess fat. Seriously, ive gotten it tested. i think thats cause i lost too much muscle, and not fat.

    If gaining muscle means i have to gain fat, will i then be able to lose the fat without losing the muscle?

    OK, i know that was a lot of inf
    OK seriously, did you even READ this at all? your totally missing the point! I LIKE zumba! i DONT need to lose weight i just dont want to gain weight!

  13. QUESTION:
    How long should a gym workout be?
    Hello yahoo people.

    I’m looking for some perspective on how long should a gym workout be??

    Okay, okay….. well, I know this largely depends workout type, intensity and fitness goals.

    A bit of background, as a former competitive cyclist, I used to be super fit – proper intense cardio sessions, karate (2-3 week), free-weights 185lbs body weight, 15% body fat. When my gym membership ran out, I maintained my fitness by road running (up to 15km in around 1h:20m)
    Then bad depression struck in Nov 2009 and over the next 18mths my weight absolutely spiralled out of control.

    Now I’m on the way back : ), I designed myself a weight loss and calorie tracker plan (in Excel) around 7-8 weeks ago, which I am sticking to reasonably well. My immediate targets are predominantly weight loss, I’m on a protein-rich, calorie-restricted diet and eating smaller meals (6x daily), supplemented by occasional intense 1hr sessions with gym instructors and the weight is gradually dropping off. My fitness is returning – especially cardio on the bike & x-trainer, where I can do more for longer and my free weight targets are improving too, plus I’ve started doing some basic mma/submission wrestling sessions and intend to start kick boxing at the beginning of Dec. So where’s the problem??

    Well, I’ve been taking tips from the gym owner, who has a background in the fitness industry and today he told me today that workouts should be intense and limited to 1hr per day… “especially as I am a beginner”.

    I appreciate the dangers of over-training, cortisol levels and muscle break down leading to long-term fatigue and performance deterioration. However, I don’t think he realises how fit I am – despite my extra weight. I also reckon fitness and stamina is partly mind over matter, plus when your body has been subject to sustained intense endurance stuff in the past like competitive cycling and heavy martials training, your body never really forgets that fitness level and its just a matter of ‘keying’ into it again to access those reserves and for those fitness levels to return reasonably quickly and for the person to eventually surpass previous levels….

    Off on a bit of a tangent there, so anyway, I can definitely see an hour max per session being a reasonable limit if I start doing 7 days a week in the gym (and I am tempted by the short duration, high intensity regime). He also mentioned splitting workouts up and having 2 sessions a day at weekends – which I also am happy to try

    So what do you all reckon to the 1 hr max per day?

    Advice, feedback, criticism, perspectives all welcome

    Does anyone know a good plan on diets dieting plan?
    After i give birth my weight keep going up and i wan to stop it.
    Is there any way that i can plan on diets dieting?

    • ANSWER:
      One of the best ways to diet is the easiest.
      For each meal, think of your plate as a circle that you divide into 4 quarters -then one quarter is healthy lean protein, the 2nd quarter is the same amount of complex whole carb (sweet potatoes, corn, peas, oatmeal, rice,-not processed) and the last 2 quarters are veggies -the same amount as the protein plus the carb.
      For breakfast, use protein, carb, a fruit and a dairy.

      So, eat meals at regular hours, drink water, get as much rest as you can (I know that if your baby is not sleeping through the night, you not sleeping at night, but take at least a 10 minute nap every time the baby naps during the day-REALLY!! Rest is an important part of overall health and too little sleep leads to too much food and not enough healthy walking or other moving)

      Do check with your doctor to see if you are eating enough!!! Yes enough. Many people cut their calories too low, skip meals and then they feel hungry and deprived and eat too much at night.

      My source: I was the same as you and have lots of friends who started messing up our weight after a baby.My top weight was almost 300 lbs and I am not a tall woman. Today my weight is a whole lot less, my clothes fit, I eat healthy food and have a much nicer life.

  7. QUESTION:
    Any good diets or dieting tips?
    do you know of any good diets o loose weight in a few weeks
    any tips??
    :)

    • ANSWER:
      Eat lots of whole grains such as whole wheat, bran, oats and brown rice and pasta. They’re all high in fiber and help make you feel full faster and longer.

      Of course eat your fruits and veggies, but if you only like a particular few like apples and banana’s then eat plenty of just that fruit. There are many health benefits from other fruit but at least stick with what you like and what you will eat. Same with veggies.

      Here is a great diet tracker that I’m currently using and its helped me lose 5lbs in a week thus far. Fitday.com You can keep track of everything you eat and drink. It totals your daily consumption of fats, carbs and proteins. There are so many features you’ll have to check it out. What I learned in a college health and fitness class is you want to keep your consumption around 10-15% protein, 55-60% carbs and <30% fat. Using fitday will calculate all of that for you!

      Of course drink plenty of water. Diet soda isn't really an alternative to regular soda cause it still has sugar which makes your blood sugar drop soon after you drink it and then your hungry afterwards. But if you can't stand water, then use Crystal Light Water packs that come in various flavors. Mix then in a water bottle and enjoy!

      Exercise! Cardio is an instant fat burner, but doing weight lifting can burn more calories in the long run. The more muscle mass you have, the more calories your body needs to sustain them, so you burn more calories while at rest. 3-5 days a week of cardio and 2-3 days a week of strength training all non-consecutive days is a good starter. Don't forget to stretch! Stretching burns calories too!

      You can also subscribe to fitness.com and recieve emails everyday with diet tips.

      I could go on forever, so there's the few that I give to you =P

  9. QUESTION:
    Any good referances for vegetartian diets or healthy dieting, Dr told me to change my diet?
    I need to change my diet to more protein and high fiber, I am 31, I dont have weight issues I have some health problems that I wont disclose online, but I do need some good diets that I can maintain my current weight maybe a loose a few pounds but not necessary at all, any vegatarian diets or suggestions

    • ANSWER:
      Your doctor needs to be more specific, because we on Y!A are not supposed to contradict his/her plan.

      Meanwhile, “more protein and high fiber” could probably mean getting away from a junk-food type of diet, which is usually poor in both of those categories.

      Another way to look at it is: LESS starches, sugars, and fats.

      Cut back on the “whites,” like white rice, white potatoes, and white flour. These things have little protein or fiber and tend to cause high blood sugar and dips in energy afterward.

      White sugar is not that much different from brown or other sugars, just worse than anything but high fructose corn syrup (avoid that like the plague).

      Too much fat of any type – animal or vegetable – is bad. Stick to omega-3s like fish and certain nut oils, and monounsaturated olive oil. A little coconut oil is good, too.

      The best diet is pretty natural, like fresh fruits and veggies in reasonable quantities, whole (preferrably gluten-free) grains, and other things that you might expect to find in the wild. They tend to work better with our genetic heritage than processed foods.

      A good idea I’ve seen around is a water diet, based on high water intake and lots of liquid-based foods like soups, juices, smoothies, and other foods with a high water content.

      As far as protein goes, fresh fish is your best bet. Eggs are underrated in this department, and one a day will cover 15-20% of your needs. Beans are a good high-fiber source of protein and certain anti-oxidants, too.

      Not all grains are equal. For example, many people find that whole wheat causes more digestive problems than it solves. Corn is high in in fiber, but most of it is eliminated quickly. Try brown rice, which is more widely tolerated. It takes longer to cook, but is worth the wait.

      Start your day with a bowl of oatmeal, which is not only a great protein and soluble fiber source, it also delivers carbs slowly to stabilize and sustain your metabolism. Add fresh raisins and walnuts instead of sugar to improve taste and nutrition.

      Most of all, avoid trendy diets in favor of a simple balanced diet you can stick with. Strict vegetarian diets are difficult to balance and may lead to deficiencies in proteins and healthy fats. I spent many years on vegetarian or vegan diets and am healthier now that I have included small amounts of animal products in my meals.

  10. QUESTION:
    What are the benefits of dieting and exercising?
    I mean, healthy diets. Not fad diets that never work. I need some sort of motivation. So, are there any other benefits to dieting and working out besides just losing weight? Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      you feel better and can do more and do it better. you live longer and have better quality of life. you spend less on clothes (smaller sizes are cheaper) and less on food because you don’t eat so much. you can enjoy life so much better if you weight less and are healthier. plus feeling better about yourself and getting compliments on how good you look.

  14. QUESTION:
    How does one “fix” their metabolism after yo-yo dieting and starving themselves for so long?
    Yo-yo dieting and starvation diets leave a lot of people’s metabolism (mine included) messed up, since one goes into metabolic “starvation mode” from major calorie cutting. How can a person stuck in this situation get out of it? How can one get their metabolism running correctly after “starving themselves?”
    Jesus flipping Christ! This section is nothing but goddamn spam!

    • ANSWER:
      JFC indeed, have just reported the nuisances.
      If you want to slowly get your body out of starvation mode, start eating plenty of healthy things, like salad and fruit. That way your body will kick start back into its normal metabolic rate, after a while it should be ok to eat normally again without your body absorbing everything that is put into it!
      Some say small amounts frequently which makes sense to me.
      Others say 3 well balanced meals a day – also sounds good to me.
      Choose whatever suits you best.

  15. QUESTION:
    Is there any point in dieting if the majority of diets don’t work?
    sometimes I think I should just accept I’m fat. i’m not overly fat, btw, just slightly overweight, and apparently my body just doesn’t want to budge. opinions?

    • ANSWER:
      The reason that “diets” don’t work is that in order to permanently lose weight you have to permanently change the way you eat. It’s as simple — and as difficult — as that.

      More exercise might be a better answer if your body “won’t budge.” Increasing your level of exercise will increase your metabolism. Believe me, I know that it’s hard to do. But keep trying different forms of exercise and you will eventually find something you like.

  18. QUESTION:
    How do you think dieting is becoming more mcdonaldized?
    How do you think dieting is becoming more mcdonaldized or socialized. Suddenly it seems all women are dieting in some way, and corporate america has caught onto this creating diet programs, diet pills, and all that jazz for women. Do you know of any other ways dieting has becoming mcdonaldized?

    • ANSWER:
      Corporate America is feeding into our desire to eat healthier but I’m not so sure that we really are eating healthier because if you analyze the content of some of those “diet” meals then they’re not all that healthy.

      But it gives people the illusion that they’re eating more healthy so people don’t really look into whether an item is all that healthy. For example, products may say “No Sugar Added” but the darn things already were loaded with sugar to begin with. However, stupid consumers buy it anyway and tell themselves that they’re “eating healthy.”

      Some items have reduced the sugar but, in order to keep it tasty, increased the fat! How is THAT healthy? See what I mean?

      By the way, nice avatar!

    what is good to take to lower high cholesteral besides dieting?
    i found out from my doctor three weeks ago that my health is good except i have high cholesteral of 243. what is good for me to take to lower it besides dieting? iam dieting also and iam taking a pill called “garlique” pills i saw on tv. what is a good product i can take to lower my cholesteral? i have another doctors appointment the 26th of this month.

    • ANSWER:
      Here it is…your body uses bile to digest food, your body converts cholesterol in your system to bile, the soluble fiber like in oatmeal binds to the bile in your intestines and sends it through to be passed out of your system, so when your body needs more bile, it will take the cholesterol out of your system again. So the more soluble fiber you eat, the more bile is removed thus lowering your cholesterol level. Check on the nutrition facts of your food to see how much soluble fiber they have.

    Science project help, diets, exercise and drugs?
    I am doing a science project about exercise, so would appreciate information on athletes diets, dieting in general, food groups and balanced diets, risks of using drugs to enhance althetic ability etc

    Thank you :)

    • ANSWER:
      This website has some good information on basic exercise and nutrition:

      http://www.liamrosen.com/fitness.html

      If you want to get into the science behind it, I really like this website:

      http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/articles

      As for drugs (steroids), surprisingly they aren’t that bad for you. There is a great documentory out called “Bigger, Stronger, Faster”. I think when athletes agree not to take them, and then they do, thats cheating. Most people who take them are your average run of the mill gym rats. I don’t have anything against those people. Google is your friend. I’m sure you could pull up all kinds of info.

      The topics of your project are pretty vague. There is TONS of information out there. You should really focus on just one of those. If you want to know more about one in specific, feel free to email me, and I’m sure I could pull up some information for you.

    What are the craziest diets you have ever heard?
    I have heard of the water diet, jolly rancher diet and the not eating ‘diet’!

    Lol i think that these are all nuts!

    Any other weird diets that you have heard of?

    • ANSWER:
      This one soup made out of onions and tomatoes… basically you eat as much as you can of this soup and only this soup. My sister and mother were crazy and desperate enough to try this one. I passed…

  29. QUESTION:
    What is the one thing that all diets that work have in common?
    No matter how you slice it – the one thing that all diets have that work – everything from Atkins to South Beach — is calorie reduction. All these “diets” are just tricks to get you to eat less. Sure, the Atkins has a metabolic effect by lowering carb intake, but everyone I know who has tried Atkins has ALSO reduced their calories (even if they didn’t do it consciously). They find themselves ordering the steak dinner at a restaurant and discarding the baked potato. Well, that jumbo backed potato has several hundred calories. If you eat your steak, green vegetable, and a soup, but skipped the potato – what have you done? Reduced calories!

    With all these juice diets and soup diets — weight watchers — and all the rest — add them up! People doing these things are eating less!

    People! Eat less and eat right! That’s the way to do it. Don’t do Atkins or juice diets. Don’t starve yourself. Take in 500 calories a day less than you burn, and you WILL lose weight.

    • ANSWER:
      to put it more exactly, less calories go in than go out. You could eat 3000 calories a day, as long as you were burning 3500 calories and you’d lose weight.

      If you are a completely inactive slug, you may need to consider eating next to nothing. On the other hand, if you engage in vigorous aerobic exercise every day, you can continue to eat what you used to eat in your former lazy slug life and you will probably lose plenty of weight.

      To put it another way: “get off your @ss and deal with it!”

  30. QUESTION:
    what diets and diet pills actually work?
    my goal is to lose about 30 pounds, are there any diet pills that actually work? or do you know of any good diets?

    • ANSWER:
      There aren’t any diet pills – not any over the counter pills. I suppose the doctor might be able to give you some prescription drugs… But the over the counter stuff is just anti-histamine -read the contents. Antihistamines tend to screw up your stomach a little and make you feel not-so-hungry. But that effect only lasts a couple days – and you’re back to eating the amount you ate before.

      If you have weight to lose, take a look at the Atkins diet – it’s pretty cheap and easy and it really works very well. It tends to normalize blood pressure and cholesterol numbers and it brings down triglycerides very quickly. It can be really useful in getting rid of acid reflux and trouble in the gut.

      Great diet – I’ve done it for many years. Get “New Diet Revolution” used from Amazon Books – it’s cheap.

    I have some flab covering my abs, which causes my abs to show only when i flex, and i can’t flex forever. How can I lose the flab without dieting? I don’t stick to diets, at all. If the only other option you can propose is a diet, than thats fine.

    • ANSWER:
      you dont really need to diet, just eat a little less.
      also try cardio to burn fat. run fast for say 4x200m to get rid of the glycogen from the muscles, and get all the other bonuses HIIT training gives, after that do slow cardio for 30 minutes, or upto 50 mintues for fat loss. you can also swim, that works as well. .

      also muscles will burn more fat than cardio in the long run,(long run being the other 23 hours of the day) so build some muscles.
      if you dont have any equipment, do push-ups, crunches, oblique twists, reverse curls, squats.
      if you have access to dumbells, do bicep curls at least, you can use them for jsut about everything.,
      if you have access to a gym ask someone who knows what their doing, or a trainer, they’ll prolly show you how to do it, and help you ge tthe right form as well.

  36. QUESTION:
    What diets would you consider extreme and unhealthy?
    I’m trying to do research about obesity and dieting habits in America. A lot of the diets I am seeing are pretty brutal. What are the craziest diets you have taken? Do you know anyone who has jeopardized their health from dieting? And what extremes have you gone to?

    • ANSWER:
      People that do only the one part of the master cleanse. i.e. distilled water, lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper. When they do it for more than 3 days, it can be very unhealthy since your body isn’t getting minerals like sodium and potassium which are pretty much necessary for your heart to beat!!

  37. QUESTION:
    How can I lose weight quicky? I also have a question about dieting and diet sodas.?
    I’m 5’6 and 123 pounds. I really want to know some good weight loss tips. I also have a question about diet sodas. I heard that drinking it makes you want to eat more sugar, but how would not eating more and drinking diet soda affect your diet? Will diet soda ruin your diet even if you don’t eat more?

    • ANSWER:
      If you are 5’6 and 123 pounds you don’t need to lose any weight it is recommended that a person who is 5′ the ideal weight is 100# and to add 5 # for every inch above that. Drinking a can of diet soda will hurt if done in moderation, if you want to lose any weight drink water and it flushes out toxins and fat.

  38. QUESTION:
    What are the side effects of popular diets?
    I am doing a group presentation and wanted to know what types of nutrient and other things your neglect yourself when doing diets such as the grapefruit diet and Atkins Diet. I need three diets, though I only need to talk for 4 minutes.

    • ANSWER:
      The two most popular diets are:

      - Calorie restricted diet
      - Atkins diet

      Neither diet is effective over a period of one year or more (Gina Kolata “Rethinking Thin”). The human body is architected to prevent starvation and was not designed to handle the amount of fat, oil, sugars, and additives in the standard American diet today. When you eat too few calories, your body automatically reduces metabolizm and stores fat. Calorie restricted diets go against the hard wiring of the human brain.

      Atkins is down right dangerous according to Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Dean Ornish (among many experts in human nutrition). The risk of heart disease, obesity, stroke, some cancers, and diabetes can be expected to increase in this diet. The diet is high in cholesterol and fat and will cause cardiovascular disease

      The one diet that seems to work universally when a person follows it for life is a pure vegetarian diet. According to the experts listed before and Dr Calwell Esselstyn, Jr. this is an ideal diet. I lost 50 pounds by changing my eating habits in this way. Vegetarians must be careful to get enough vitamin B12, vitamin D, and Omega-3 fatty acids. These can be added with supplements.

    My aunt’s mother has CHF and is on a water restriction, low sodium, low fat, cumidin diet. So, her diet is fairly limited. Unfortunately, she has always loved to eat and now that she has been told that soup, fruit and anything that contains liquid is out, she is getting very depressed and doesn’t want to eat at all. Does anyone have any suggestions for foods we can try?

    • ANSWER:
      I am a cardiac nurse. Try to have her eat good tasting healthy foods that are normal to her. Stay away from excess salt and water, but make it tasty with spices. Nothing wrong with steak, mashed potatoes, and a salad, if there is not a lot of salt added. Good Luck!

  42. QUESTION:
    Why do most people think diets like Caveman diet, atkins diet, Bible diet are fad diets?
    I mean, people originally lived off the land thousands of years ago.

    Its only when man started making processed foods and making coke and other sodas, cakes, dressings, chemicals, preservatives that everything screwed up.

    So what do these other people believe? What do these other people think that we should eat?

    • ANSWER:
      I actually believe in the Paleo/Caveman diet. If people follow it, I think it could make the whole world a lot thinner then it actually is.

      Atkins seems too diety for me, it sounds like a diet.

  44. QUESTION:
    Are High Fat Diets Like Ketogenic Diet and Atkins Diet actually bad for you?
    I have done a lot of research on this but I am getting conflicting information from everywhere. WHAT IS THE TRUTH? Are high fat diets like Ketogenic and Atkins diet actually good for you unlike what is commonly believed? Or are they bad? IDC short term or long term just give the the whole damn story on this. Is the current food pyramid actually a recipe for heart disaster? Or is the American heart association actually telling the truth that their food pyramid is healthiest option for an individual.

    • ANSWER:
      American Heart Association’s low fat, high carb recommendations were based on flimsy, faulty science. Time has proven that this is dangerous, unhealthy advice. It has been proven that carbs *not saturated fat* cause VLDL, high triglycerides, high blood pressure & high blood sugars – yet the American Heart Association still recommends a low fat, high carb diet. American Diabetic Assc uses the AHA recommendations (for a “healthy” heart) even though the disastrous effects of carbs on a diabetic have NEVER been in dispute.

      U.S. government guidelines were changed 35 years ago to suggest we lower our fat intake & increase our carb intake. American society followed these recommendations & in this same time frame obesity, diabetes, heart disease are all at epidemic levels. Through their direct effects on insulin & blood sugar, refined carbohydrates are the dietary cause of coronary heart disease & diabetes.

      Plaque build up in the arteries are more attributable to carb consumption than dietary fats, which seems to be the conclusion of the following study. Carb consumption raises triglycerides & VLDL (bad cholesterol). Fats raise the HDL (good cholesterol). High triglyceride levels & low HDL levels are an indicator of plaque, glycation – the precursors to a heart attack and heart disease.

      study from the Oxford group examining the postprandial (after-eating) effects of a low-fat vs. low-carbohydrate diet. (Roberts R et al, 2008)

      Postprandial lipoproteins, you’d think, would be plentiful after ingesting a large quantity of fat, since fat must be absorbed via chylomicrons into the bloodstream. But it’s carbohydrates that figure most prominently in determining the pattern and magnitude of postprandial triglycerides and lipoproteins. Much of this effect develops by way of de novo lipogenesis, the generation of new lipoproteins like VLDL after carbohydrate ingestion.

      http://heartscanblog.blogspot.com/2009/11/after-eating-effects-carbohydrates-vs.html

      The body does better with more saturated fat than less. Saturated fats are required to make many vitamins & minerals bioavailable so they can be incorporated into the body structure. Saturated fat is required for the body to function properly & to regenerate & heal.

      7 Reasons to Eat More Saturated Fat

      1) Improved cardiovascular risk factors

      Saturated fat in the diet is the only means to reduce the levels of lipoprotein (a) — that correlates strongly with risk for heart disease. Eating fats raises the level of HDL, the good cholesterol.

      2) Stronger bones

      50% of dietary fats should be saturated fats for calcium to be incorporated into the bone structure, according to expert in human health, Mary Enig, Ph.D.

      3) Improved liver health

      Studies show that saturated fat encourages the liver cells to dump fat content. Saturated fat has been shown to protect the liver from toxic insults & even to reverse the damage.

      4) Healthy lungs

      The fat content of lung surfactant is 100% saturated fatty acids. Replacement of these critical fats by other types of fat makes faulty surfactant & potentially causes collapse of the airspaces & respiratory distress.

      5) Healthy brain

      Your brain is mainly made of fat & cholesterol. Most of the fatty acids in the brain are actually saturated. The brain needs saturated fats to function optimally.

      6) Proper nerve signaling & hormone production

      Certain saturated fats, found in butter, lard, coconut oil, function directly as signaling messengers that influence the metabolism.

      7) Strong immune system

      Saturated fats found in butter & coconut oil play key roles in immune health. Loss of sufficient saturated fatty acids in the white blood cells hampers their ability to destroy foreign invaders, such as viruses, bacteria, germs & fungi. We need them to keep the immune system vigilant against cancerous cells & infectious invaders.

      Lipids (made from fatty acids) make up 60–80% of the central nervous system and need to be constantly replenished. Deficiency makes the nervous system vulnerable to the fat soluble metals, such as metallic mercury constantly escaping as vapor evaporating from the amalgam fillings.

      Saturated fats play many important biologic roles. They are an integral component of cell membranes, which are 50% saturated fat. (goes on to say same as in 7 Reasons to Eat More Saturated Fat)

  45. QUESTION:
    are balanced diets better than dieting to lose weight?
    ive dieted before, and lost weight, then i put it back on again cause diets suck, so im eating like a normal person now, not really counting calories, following the food pyramid.
    mum reakons she did lose weight when she was my age.. she would eat whatever was on the table, she looked at cake the same as an apple. when she started netball training she lost heaps of weight, but still ate whatever she wanted, when she was hungry.. is this the key all along? can we just eat whatever we feel like (according to the healthy food pyramid) and do exercise and we get to our goal weights? is it exercise that really makes the big difference?

    • ANSWER:
      Absolutely…….>

      I have actually increased my calorie intake, but have removed as much fat and sugars as possible and began working out daily….I have lost 11 pounds and 7% body fat in 30 days……>

  46. QUESTION:
    What kind of diets that worked for you?
    I don’t like diets that only work temporary, so what kind of diets that worked for you?

    I want to learn how to lose weight by dieting alone, because exercising while eating junk food is useless. If I’m able to lose a good amount of weight by dieting, then I’ll start to exercise.

    • ANSWER:
      Juice fasting worked for me :)
      I did a juice fast for 40 days and I lost about 20 lbs. I was on a strict fast though… fresh citrus juice drinks (like lemon, orange, grapefruit, etc.), drinking 2-3 litres of water a day and having like 2 cups of green tea everyday of my fast. But I also took diet pills, and my vitamins and minerals as well as protein drinks. I also did half an hour of light workout each day.
      Well, I broke the fast the proper way, which I only regained back about 4 lbs and from there on my weight stabilized.
      Right now I’m on my second round of my juice fast. Still working hard on it!

  47. QUESTION:
    How do you get back on track with dieting?
    I’ve been dieting…well not really dieting but just eating healthy, i’ve been doing really well, no problems for about 5 months and then when the holidays hit I figured I might as well enjoy them and since then I haven’t managed to get back to eating healthy. The best I’ve done is live a few weeks off of lean cuisines-not satisfying at all. So I just wondered if anyone has some helpful tips to getting their mindset to eating healthy again.

    • ANSWER:
      The first week of any diet is the hardest but once you stick to it it will get easier. You need to think of the reasons your doing this Diet and then decide either “well i can’t really be bothered any more” or “oh my goodness now I remember why I started this 5 months ago I better get back on thrack and fast!” Hope it goes ok!

  49. QUESTION:
    What diets have actually worked for you?
    I’m a firm believer in not just dieting but creating a healthy lifestyle, something that a person can stick to. With that being said, what diets have worked for you? Have you stuck to them and made them apart of your lifestyle or did you just diet short term?

    • ANSWER:
      I think I’ve tried to lose weight with all sorts of diets such as the soup diet and shakes, and also eating under a dangerous 600 calories or skipping meals which was all out of desperation. I finally took the time to feed some knowledge into my head on healthy eating and excercising and soon realised that commitment was all that it took to make ones success. I cut out late night snacking and watched my food portions. It depends on every individual and their obstacles.

      I lost over 35 lbs from including lots of physical activity into my daily routines and watching what I put in my mouth. Now and again I will eat at fast food places or treat myself to ice cream but it’s not as much as I used to before. Today I’m still kicking near a 40 lb loss and plan to practice healthy eating and excercise for the rest of my life… or else it wouldn’t be a ‘lifestyle change’ :)

  50. QUESTION:
    What are some good recomended weight loss diets?
    I am currently a wrestler in high school and weigh 125 pounds. I run 2 miles at practice and 3 miles at night. I need to lose 2-4 pounds of weight and have 3 weeks to do it. Just plain exercise isn’t cutting it so I am turning to dieting. I have checked out the Grapefruit diet and do not really want to try it because it is a low carb one. Any other suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Best weight loss diet I have found was the paleo diet. A combination of crossfit and paleo will get you
      in awesome shape as quick as anything I have seen.


Diet Weight Loss Tips

Let’s face it. Men are just different when it comes to weight loss. They tend to stack on the weight in different places than a woman does. Weight loss is possible for men when small lifestyle changes are made. Most men I know are not good at sticking religiously to some diet or another. In this article I’m going to focus on how just making some small changes to daily habits can have very impressive results!

Drink more water. Most men would rather drink coffee, beer or wine than drink a glass of water but any weight loss program for men needs to include this vital tip. You don’t have to drink gallon everyday, just a little more than you do now. Did you know that drinking a glass of water before a meal tends to reduce the amount of food you eat, aids with digestion and assists with lubrication of joints like the knees and ankles. The importance of this last point will become apparent in the next tip.

Walk a little more each day. Most men would rather drive a car or take a cab than be seen dead walking or exercising. If your knees and ankles can’t take the weight anymore, even considering extra walking is going to be an issue. That’s why drinking just one glass of water before each meal is going to make a big difference. How can you fit a little more walking into your already busy day, you ask? The answer is to take the stairs instead of the elevator. If you work on the 5th floor, get off at the 3rd and walk up the last two flights. Park the car a little further away from the office or the shops and walk the extra distance. You get the idea. Even a busy man on a weight loss crusade can find ways like this to walk a little more.

If you really are serious about weight loss, I can’t recommend highly enough the purchase of a water purifier. Did you know that tap water can often contain hundreds of impurities including chlorine. Scientists have long known that chlorine is one of the most dangerous chemicals going around. I’m not going to go into all the reasons why chlorine and a host of other dangerous chemicals are added to our water supply and all the reasons why they are dangerous for your heath, but you can eliminate them by using a water filter.

Eat just a little more fruit, vegetables and salads. Eating a diet of fatty foods is destined to make you fatter and less healthy. Even if it’s just a little more fruit like an apple or an orange, a little more vegetables, especially leafy green vegetables like spinach and bok choy and a little more salad like lettuce, tomato and cucumber will have a big result. Weight loss for men is all about making a series of small changes to daily habits and routines.

Drink a little less alcohol. This one tip alone is going to be a big factor for men who are serious about losing weight,building muscle and keeping the weight off for good. Remember the tip about drinking more water? The more water you drink the less alcohol you’ll be able to consume and the less hungry you will be also.

My final weight loss tip for men is that you can everything you want but do it in moderation. You really can eat anything and everything you want but simply don’t overdo it. If you drink more water, walk a little more, eat more of the foods that are good for you you can also enjoy a beer or two, have take-out once a week, cook up some bacon and eggs occasionally and enjoy your new lifestyle where losing weight and feeling good is all part of your new routine.

    • ANSWER:
      Lose Weight With These 17 Hot Tips
      Some billion dollars is spent on weight loss each year as people desperately search and mistakenly believe ‘the answer’ to looking and feeling good is losing weight.
      This may be a popular belief but it is totally false as the majority of the big weight loss spenders are losing their money, not their weight.

      The majority of people who try to lose weight use very unhealthy methods that have devastating effects on the metabolism (the body’s engine). In fact, 98% of those people who do manage to lose some weight soon gain it back and end up with a damaged metabolism which makes future weight loss efforts near impossible.

      There is a simple concept to lose weight and look good. It happens when you do the right thing and take responsibility for your health and improve it first and foremost. You cannot lose weight to improve your health – you must improve your health and have a healthy metabolism in order to lose weight.

      Don’t keep doing what you are doing if it is not working. Here are 17 hot tips that will work better than anything you can purchase:

      1. Have a strength training exercise program firmly in place.
      2. Perform 1-2 interval training sessions each week.
      3. Hire a fitness professional to teach you how to exercise intensely enough to really make a difference to your metabolism.
      4. Do not do any long, slow, steady state activity (walking, jogging, cycling etc). These are recreational activities that are fine as part of an active lifestyle but can never replace a proper exercise program.
      5. Separate interval training and strength training days.
      6. Eat 5-7 times each day.
      7. Have at least 20 grams of protein at each meal.
      8. Make up the balance of your meals with lots of cooked and raw vegetables.
      9. Eat whole natural unprocessed foods.
      10. Space your small meals out every 2-3 hours throughout the day.
      11. Eat within an hour of waking.
      12. Plan your meals, shop and prepare them in advance and take them with you wherever you go so you are not tempted to eat something that will not help you reach your goals.
      13. Plan your workouts in advance and schedule them on your planner or calendar.
      14. Treat these workout times as important appointments and keep your promises to yourself.
      15. List 10-20 benefits that you will gain from becoming stronger, fitter and slimmer and make them your health/fitness/weight loss goals. These goals will then become much more personal and meaningful.
      16. Go over these benefits as often as you need to. This may be daily, weekly or monthly.
      17. You can’t manage your health until you can manage your self which involves managing your time, your energy, your workouts, and your eating plan.

      Follow these 17 hot tips and consider yourself successful as this approach to fitness and fat loss will give you an advantage over 95% of the diets and weight loss programs available. Yes you will lose fat but you will also improve your overall health which in turn will improve the quality of your life.

  2. QUESTION:
    Diet, lifestyle and weight loss tips please?
    I am 15 and a half and I would ideally like to loose 35KGs. I am not fit, but not serveraly unfit. I do eat healthly, its just the quantities and the snacks inbetween. Do you have any tips to stick to a healthy diet? Good weight loss exercises?

    • ANSWER:
      Exercise and a balanced diet are the key factors in fat loss and weight reduction. If you are eating more calories than you are burning off throughout the day the result will be that the calories will be stored as fat.

      These exercises are excellent, efficient choices, the experts say. But with just about any strength or resistance exercise, the question is not so much whether the exercise works as how well you execute.

      1. Walking – Any exercise program should include cardiovascular exercise, which strengthens the heart and burns calories. And walking is something you can do anywhere, anytime, with no equipment other than a good pair of shoes.

      2. Interval training – Whether you’re a beginner or an exercise veteran, a walker or an aerobic dancer, adding interval training to your cardiovascular workout will boost your fitness level and help you lose weight.

      3. Squats – Strength training is essential, the experts say. And our experts tended to favor strength-training exercises that target multiple muscle groups. Squats, which work the quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluteals, are an excellent example.

      4. Push-ups – If done correctly, the push-up can strengthen the chest, shoulders, triceps, and even the core trunk muscles, all at one time.

      5. Bent Over Row – Talk about bang for the buck: This exercise works all the major muscles of the upper back, as well as the biceps.

      6. Abdominal Crunches – Who doesn’t want firm, flat abs? Experts say that when done correctly, the familiar crunch (along with its variations) is a good choice to target them.

      Keep motivated and focus on your goals. Goodluck! :)

    SO for the first few days like Monday – Wednesday should I just eat fruit to clean my system out????

    Any advice???
    Thanks!

    NOOO SPAMM PLEASE I WILL JUST REPORT YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

    SO

    • ANSWER:
      Best thing is to think about increasing your water intake to get rid of toxins. Drink some green tea or herbal tea as well.
      Have a salad with some white meat and snack on fruit. Try and spread your three meals a day to about six times a day to help keep your blood sugar and metabolism high.
      If you eat just fruit and veggies you may find you will have stomach problems and you will be on the loo alot.. do it gradually.

      Have a handful of nuts/ seeds and dried fruit as a snack..keeps the protein levels up that will make you feel fuller for longer. Only a small handful mind as calories can be too high if you go beyond that.

      Dont try and rush your change too quickly as you may find that you crave the sugar and junk you have just got rid of. And dont be too hard on yourself if you find you falter.. just think of all those benefits of changing your eating habits foremost.

  6. QUESTION:
    Hi Please can anyone tell me any secret weight loss/diet tips?
    Im desperate to find some diet tips to help me shed the last stone of my diet, im just stuck? Help…..

    • ANSWER:
      Without using any “Lose 10lbs in 10 minutes” gimmicks or dieuretics, the only tried and true method to weight loss is exercise and diet. Simply put, if you burn (exercise) more calories than you consume (diet), then you will lose weight, and become healthier overall in the process. I’m sure there are plenty of good books out there to help you monitor your caloric intake while still eating healthy foods. Try eating slowly for starters. If you take breaks in between every couple of mouthfuls, it gives your stomach a chance to register the fact that it’s processing food. Then it’ll let you know when it’s full. On the other hand, if you eat really fast, you’ll end up cramming alot more in there before your stomach catches up to you, so to speak. Also, try eating a little bit but more often. In Asia, for example, rather than sitting down for “3 squares a day,” as we do in the West, and notwithstanding their healthier diets (fish, rice), a traditional meal may consist of 5 or more dishes that one may consume at their own pace. Finally, start walking instead of driving. It’s great exercise and gives you alot of time to think about “that last stone!”

    • ANSWER:
      I know you are prolly desperate to lose weight, but trust me…Doing it the unhealthy way will only make you sick, and/or make you GAIN all the weight back! Try just eating healthy, and exercising! You need to burn more calories than you consume to lose weight!

      Speed up your metabolism by doing lots of cardio…45 minutes to an hour a day…Strength training…30 minutes 4-5 times a week. Good cardio workouts are:
      The Bootcamp Workout – This is an all-time favorite of mine. It’s very good because it combines Cardio + Strength Training exercises…Which help to burn FAT faster! To see the Bootcamp Workout, and PRINT It out for reference, go here: http://exercise.about.com/cs/cardioworkouts/l/blbootcamp.htm
      Running/jogging
      Kickboxing/Taebo
      Stair-climbing
      Aerobics/Dancing
      Biking
      Eat lots of whole-grain foods, protein, fruits, veggies, and light yogurt. Drink plenty of water, and green tea.
      Don’t be discouraged…The best you can do…Is just DO IT, and don’t think about it!! That’s what I did, and I dropped 40lbs! Hang in there…and email me if you’d like!!

    What should I do? (sleep, diet, weight loss tips)?
    I’m trying to lose weight. don’t answer telling me not to do anything or exercise because I’m not going to. its 1 am and last time i slept was yesterday at 2 for one hour, in the past two days I’ve lost six lbs and ate a Klondike bar, 5 pistachio nuts, and 2 coffees. would it benefit me more in weight loss if i stayed up one more day without eating or would i lose more if i went to sleep soon and then didn’t eat? and i have tons of crushed up diet pills that i was going to put in my drinks but it turns out they don’t mix.. and i cannot take pills because of past experiences, what are ways to get them into me?

    • ANSWER:
      For one thing, your body is in starvation mode right now. Since you aren’t eating around 1,000 calories, your body thinks it is starving so everything you eat it will keep and turn to fat to store for energy instead of getting rid of. My advise is to get some rest and start a diet plan tomorrow. Start with eating mostly fruits and vegetables with a little meat. Drink a LOT of water. You should be drinking half of your weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 100 pounds you would want to drink 50 ounces of water a day. Good luck and email for more tips!

      Concentrate on losing/burning fat. When you lose fat you will achieve the toned look, look slimmer, leaner and overall better. You can try P90X , but P90X costs 5 and it takes 90 days for results. A better, faster and free program is the specialized fat burning program called the Fat X 12 fat burning workout and diet program. It’s a 12 day workout and diet plan you can cycle as many times a you want. The workout videos and diet are free on the Fat X 101 blog. It’s an awesome program to burn fat and tone up! Good luck!

    thanks(:

    • ANSWER:
      When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
      If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
      will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
      underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
      exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
      diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
      after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
      your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
      you don’t eat wheat then you don’t eat all those sticky, fatty goey
      cakes, you don’t eat junk food, and you don’t eat biscuits. But your
      diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
      calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
      start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
      most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
      lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
      disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
      your problem areas for men and women. It’s not necessarily to become a
      bodybuilder or even join a gym – a couple of dumbbells will help you
      to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

    Anyhow,i have seen a dietician at my docs,she said i am to watch everything i eat and in look at labels and follow it by 100gms ,so per 100gms i should not eat anything with more than 10gms sugar,and 5-8gms of fat. I have tried doing this a bit but have not really felt that it will help,also not sure what the best tip is with pcos to lose weight,i have read in some places,cut down on carbs,but then i’m sort of picking at things and end up bingeing on them again,i am aware about the connection with carbs and the blood sugar etc.

    Anyone who is a health care professional that is able to advise,or anyone with good advice or similar situation,would like to hear from you. Thanks
    ok,why did the dietician tell me to eat only high bran/wholemeal/wholegrain carbs,and watch the fat and sugar but not watch the calories,she said she would not go onto that at the moment.
    Also i have been told that pcos does make it harder to lose weight,i have already lost half a stone god knows how,i am on cerazzette pill cause it doesn’t contain oestrogen,and to help acne,and also am taking metformin 1, 3 times a day
    could you give me some advice of how to find out about the diet that the 2nd answerer mentioned?? Vitaline?

  17. QUESTION:
    Detox diet or Water diet? Weight loss tips?
    I’ve been wanting to lose 10 pounds lately, and no matter what I do, I just cannot get below 110. I’m 15, female, 5’3″, and like, 112 pounds. I’ll admit, I am skinny, but I want to be down to 100. I wanted to detox, but I’m not sure if that is for me.

    Would drinking just water for a whole week help me lose weight?
    Every time I lose weight I always gain it back.

    Do you have any tips or ideas? My mom never really buys all kinds of fruit like apples, pears, and peaches, and oranges all the time, so she’ll think something is up when she sees I’m just eating fruit.

    Any tips would be great. Thanks!

    hi there i dont really need to loose weight as im a size 8 but i want to tone around my middle i do the right exercise but am a bit stuck on healthy food i do all the fruit for lunch etc but i need to know main meals for dinner in the evening which are very low calorie any help would be great :)

    • ANSWER:
      After spine surgery I gained 60 plus lbs. From family being nice and giving me all the things I wanted. From the surgery I could not exercise and walking was a chore. So with spine damage and no chance at exercise I remembered what my high school coach told me.
      “It calorie in and calorie burned” The way to burn weight is burn more than you take in. If you do this you will loose weight. So I counted calories and I nearly starved.
      I started reading the diets out there. Atkins and south beach. Tried Atkins and lost weight. After loosing several lbs I shared the diet with friends and it worked for them as well. One fellow went from size 48 to 38 pants, stopped taking BP medication and stopped taking diabetes medication. Ate eggs and bacon for breakfast and life was good. I just had trouble holding to the diet. In time I gained the weight back. After the yo-yo dieting and radical eating soups and such, I started to do the common sense diet.
      I found something that works and I plan to write a book on it. In the mean time I am will to share this much. The more your bowels work the better you will feel. Turn your diet into a high fiber diet and the more you eat the more you will loose. I find that “Total” raisin Bran will speed your digestion. So eat two or three bowel per day. Salads of fresh veggies will help as well. Yes, use dressing of some type and you need fats. Whole milk, (have documentation to prove it). And Metamucil in the mornin and after noon will help clean your bowels and keep you going. In time you will be able ot eat most any thing you like (as long as it makes you poop) and eat all you like. Things like steak with fat and good cuts of meat. Stay away from burgers and processed foods. Chicken meat and good cuts of pork are OK.
      If you snack at night eat the Raisin bran and it will move you in the morning. No white bread, high grain breads are OK.
      You need to eat 5 or 6 times per day. From early morning on. Eat small meals and in the am add fresh fruits.
      I promise you will loose weight and in time start feeling much better. I have given this info to many people and all have lost weight,. None have had medical problems from it.

      I wish you the best.

  21. QUESTION:
    good diet foods and weight loss tips?
    I’m on a diet just to lose about 10-15 pounds within the next few months. I’ve been working out a little but I’m a stay-at-home mother so it’s hard to really get out of the house and go jogging frequently. Any foods/recipes or dieting tricks and tips that will help me lose some weight?

    Thank you! :)

    • ANSWER:
      It’s tough when you have to juggle free time and the kids. Kudos to you for doing a job that many don’t realize is not easy.

      Depending if you have decent financial freedom, you could invest in a stationary bike, or a treadmill. The only dieting trick I know of is to control the amount of calories you intake, and stay away from deep fried foods. Eating organic foods is always helpful. If you read food labels, you’ll notice the majority of foods on our store shelves have artificial ingredients, monosodium glutamate…all that stuff won’t help with anything that has to do with a healthy diet. I struggled with weight up until about 4 years ago. I’m 5’8, and I was 207 lbs. Within a year and a half, I was able to drop down to 160 lbs. However, I was fortunate to have the luxury of enough time to run a swim a lot. I included grapefruit in my diet, which is claimed to help a lot with weight loss. But i’m not sure if it helped, since I was exercising a lot. I was always informed that if I took any medication, I needed to check with my physician before adding grapefruit into my daily diet because it could have a negative reaction. So if you decide to try grapefruit, and you take medication, check with your doc to see if it’s okay! Good luck!

    i want to really change myself and get a slimmer figure (slimmer thighs, fine-toned stomach, and slimmer hips, etc.) i want to lose 30 pounds!
    i began to exercise 30 minutes on treadmill each day, and on at least three days i have an hour of martial arts. i also cut down on my diet to mainly fruits.
    are there any other healthy foods that i can eat without gaining weight? should i fix my exercise schedule? should i also do more kinds of exercises? if so, what kind? what other helpful tips are there to speed up the weight-loss process?
    thank you! :]

    • ANSWER:
      These tips for weight loss really work for me and can help you too:

      Buy only what is on a prepared list and going only on a certain day.

      Never go food shopping hungry. If you go food shopping without a good meal in your stomach, it will be difficult to resist purchase snack foods.

      Never keep snack foods in house. If you use an excuse like “I buy this snack for the kids”, you are on risk of sabotage your own weight loss efforts.

      Eat on smaller plates. It helps eat less

    Diet and weight loss tips..?
    Hey all, I am desperate to lose weight and tone up! I’m already attempting a diet, and it’s going okay but I’m not seeing any results. I also cycle down to the gym whenever I can (depends whether I’m working or not). I’m doing everything I can, and I might be buying a Slendertone as well. If anyone has got any tips that’d be really great! I particularly wanna lose weight from my thighs. If within a few years nothing gets any better I’m resorting to surgery. Any help is much appreciated – thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      never eat less than 1200 calories, and never more than 1500-1800
      also, exercise for about an hour 4-7 times a week. exercise as much as possible, but don’t exhaust yourself. switch it up from biking to walking/jogging to hiking, dancing, swimming.. anything!
      to reach your weight goal, make sure you eat tons of vegetables, fruits, lean protein like poultry and fish, TONS OF WATER and not too many carbs. eat fiber rich foods, too.
      i would suggest you eat some of these foods to boost your metabolism:
      -green tea and water
      -soup (not creamy)
      -grapefruit
      -broccoli
      -low fat yogurt
      -lean turkey
      -oatmeal

      let yourself indulge once in a while when you’re craving something unhealthy, but make sure you eat it in moderation. like a few bites.

      good luck!

      Do it for yourself : easiest way to lose weight is to decide for yourself that you really want to lose weight if you are not motivated enough than nothing is going to happen
      Exercise : do cardio exercise, yoga, pilates its great to burn fat and it will tone ur body as well, Dancing can be one of the ways of a work out and you may not even get bored of it.
      Diet wise : drink 8-10 glasses of water. U should have a healthy balanced diet have more fibre and protein in your diet they keep you full and energized and you should have small meal every 3 hours and don’t eat before 3 hrs of going to bed and soup it make u full and has less calories just avoid the cream and make the soup in this way mix veggies and water sort of a thick soup its very filling and sometimes tasty. You should look at how you are eating these days. Eating healthy food lets you have a healthy body. You should stop using food that has fat and contains sweets in it. You should prefer having fruits and vegetables over them along with some work out. Check the below articles for weight loss tips. http://cashsunshine.blogspot.com/search/label/weight%20loss

    weight loss tips on diet and excersize? ?
    i’m 14, 5’3
    and about 200 pounds..
    my goal is to get down to 115 by 2010
    i want to do it as healthy as possible
    i’m also a vegetarian so meat can’t be involved in this..
    any diet tips and special exercises are appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, first of all, excellent goal! I love that you gave yourself a year to do the job!

      Suggestion:
      1) Weigh yourself once a week, at approx. the same time, wearing approx. the same thing.
      2) Try to make the healthiest choices possible when choosing food. For example, choose brown rice over white rice. Choose whole-grained bread over white bread, etc.
      3) Eat half of your normal portion at each meal.
      4) Never skip breakfast as it wakes up your metabolism and gets it working for the day.
      5) Only allow yourself one sweet on Saturday and one on Sunday (unless it’s a special occasion like a birthday).
      6) Drink mostly water and plenty of it. Save sweet drinks for special occasions. Limit soda-even diet. Skim milk is excellent!
      7) Try to hit all the major food groups when choosing your food: lean protein, veggies, fruits, whole-grains, low-fat dairy.

      http://www.easy-weightloss-tips.com/eat-healthy.html

      8) Be more active. Ride your bike, take a walk, put on some good tunes and dance, jump rope, etc. Try to do something that leaves you huffing and puffing for 30 minutes each day. In addition, do some good target exercises each night at home:

      http://www.easy-weightloss-tips.com/target-exercises.html

      If you do these things, you won’t feel so deprived and you won’t be tempted to give it all up. You’ll lose weight and keep it off without ruining your metabolism!

      Oh, before I forget, this page is called “Vegetarian Weight Loss” and includes a vegetarian food pyramid.

    ok just gotta loose 12 pounds for med screening for the Army im working on running but im not so good and keeping a steady diet i don’t eat alot so my metabolism is not to great so if you have any advice please tell me

    • ANSWER:
      Reduce your calories & monitor your intake.

      Weight loss is a combination of good nutrition, calorie reduction, and exercising.

      Reducing your caloric intake by 3500 calories = 1 pound weight loss

      Formula for Success

      1. Small Frequent Meals
      Don’t skip meals or go more than four hours without eating this set you up for later temptation. When meals are more than six hours apart, plan strategic snacks.

      2. Eat Moderate Portions
      Eat a little less of everything!

      3. Beware of Concentrated Sugars
      Excess sugar eaten alone causes more insulin secretion. Insulin promotes fat storage and can result in a rebound drop in blood sugar levels. Low blood sugar, in return, stimulates the appetite, especially cravings for more sugar.

      4. Eat Foods High in Fiber
      Fiber fills you up and helps stabilize blood sugar levels. There are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. We need both of them in our diet!

      5. Lower Your Fat Intake
      Limit foods that are high in fat.

      6 . Consume Caffeine in Moderation, If at All
      Caffeine, like alcohol, may be contained in beverages considered to be food but the effects of this chemical are definitely drug-like.

      7. Exercise at least 3 times a week. Walk, walk, walk, or Run!!! Drink Plenty of water.

      Use the charts below to determine your appropriate weight and caloric intake.

  34. QUESTION:
    best weight loss tips? diet or exercise or anything?
    thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      Honestly, it takes self will and perseverance. Nothing else.
      Of course exercise helps too haha. But you have to have the mind sight of how much you really want to lose the weight.

      For lunches, eat grapefruit (with no added sugar) and drink water. Grapefruit diet really does work, I don’t care what anyone tells you it’s the truth. Just stay away from HEAVY calorie food such as rootbeer floats, chocolate sundaes, mcdonalds and eat less junk foods.
      I wish you the luck of the world….I really hope you strive your goal, and go through with it. I did it last summer and lost 98 pounds. Make sure you have music to listen to, and running really helps.

    I used to be a very comfortable size four, but over the last couple of years, I’ve gained a lot of weight, and now I’m an 8/10. I actually prefer my body to be curvier than I was, but I feel my flab has gotten a little out of hand.

    Any weight loss tips, ideas or diet plans?
    Okay so I weigh 126 right now and I would like to weigh 116. If you have any exercise ideas too that’d be great. :)

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve lost 20 pounds in 60 days, which might not seem like a lot of weight, but I did it naturally. I did not try any of the yo-yo diets. I did it the good old-fashioned natural way. You see, losing weight should be a lifestyle change, not a diet. It took time to put on the weight, and you should give yourself time to take it off.

      I enjoyed mini meals, eating every two hours. I was not hungry at all because I was eating every two hours and eating healthy foods… foods that I really enjoyed. I didn’t have anything processed, or prepared like some diets (Nutrisystem, weight watchers, etc). I’m not knocking those diets, but anything that can be shipped, dried in a box or prepared ahead of time and laced with preservatives is not good to put into your body.

      As for exercise, I worked out on my glider machine in the house for 20 minutes five days a week. You can use the threadmill. The secret to making just 20 minutes of exercise effective for me was that I moved as fast as I could (until my body couldn’t go anymore) for about 3 minutes, and then I slowed down for another two minutes.

      So if you’re on the Threadmill, just walk or run really, really fast for a few minutes and then slow down to a moderate pace… rinse and then repeat. I also run up and down two flights of stairs (15 steps) in my house 25 times. I would spread it out throughout the day and do five flights each time.
      Hope this helps.

  42. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have any really good weight loss tips?
    Does anyone have any exercise diet tips for losing weight?

    • ANSWER:
      When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
      If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
      will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
      underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
      exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
      diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
      after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
      your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
      you don’t eat wheat then you don’t eat all those sticky, fatty goey
      cakes, you don’t eat junk food, and you don’t eat biscuits. But your
      diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
      calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
      start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
      most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
      lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
      disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
      your problem areas for men and women. It’s not necessarily to become a

      to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

  43. QUESTION:
    I need weight loss/diet plan tips?
    Just to give a little detail about myself; I’m 15, I weigh about 185 pounds, and I’m 5’4″.
    My goal right now is to lose around 20 to 25 pounds before my birthday which is on July 9. I am definitely really deticated to a diet once I start, I just don’t know how to get started!

    • ANSWER:
      When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
      If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
      will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If you don’t eat wheat then you don’t eat all those sticky, fatty goey cakes, you don’t eat junk food, and you don’t eat biscuits. But your diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising, start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack, disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target your problem areas for men and women. It’s not necessarily to become a bodybuilder or even join a gym – a couple of dumbbells will help you to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

  44. QUESTION:
    Im wondering.What are some easy weight loss tips.Ive been drinking nothing but water and diet soda?
    Ive also been exercising and cleaning and doing anything to make me sweat.ive been watching what i eat.And all that good stuff.I just need some tips.

    • ANSWER:
      Here are some ways to lose weight fast.

      1 – Take everything one step at a time. Begin simply by paying more attention to what you are eating, slowly cutting back on the bad foods and implementing more healthy foods into your diet. Once you have this under control, the next step is to add exercise to your plan. If you do not like exercising, take this one step at a time as well by implementing only 15 to 30 minutes at a time, at first.

      2 – Choose foods and activities that you enjoy. If you do activities that you get enjoyment out of, you will find them to be much more successful than trying to exercise in ways that you do not enjoy. The same goes for foods that you implement in your diet: Choosing foods that you enjoy will help you enjoy your diet rather than craving bad foods.

      3 – Build muscle. You lose calories based on your weight. Muscles, surprisingly enough, burn calories more quickly than fat does, pound for pound. Work out with weights to build muscle and lose weight, and then allow your extra lean muscle mass to burn more calories for you on a long term basis.

      4 – Reduce your carbohydrates. Do not cut your carbohydrates out completely, because your body needs carbohydrates for energy. Cut out some of the white breads and pastas from your diet, though, to cut down on the carbohydrates that you consume. What carbs you do need to eat, you can replace with whole wheat and brown carbs for better health.

      5 – Set realistic, measurable and attainable goals. Put deadlines on your goals, making them measurable. Make them realistic by choosing goals that you know you can attain. Set long term and short term goals …………….

    dieting & weight loss tips..?
    i’m 14 and i’m finally trying to stick to my diet plan, but i made it myself, and i need some tips & advice on the best ways to loose weight.
    my “diet plan” is pretty much this:
    - only one can of pop every other day
    - fast food only once a week
    - cut down on snacks
    - drink juice, water, and tea
    - be careful on carbs [like pizza, bagels, etc]
    - do at least 50-100 crunches every day or twice a day

    size: 5/7
    weight: 134-140-ish
    height: 5’5”
    shirt size: medium
    hoodie size: large

    i want to lose at least 5-10 lbs by summer
    then by summer time i will start exersizing more and keep eating that way & stuff. and then i’ll aim to lose 10-15 more lbs.

    do you think that “diet plan” will work okay? what are some other tips that will help me lose more weight or lose weight easier. i also really hate my stomach and want that to be flat.

    and i know, everyone on yahoo answers says “your body is perfect, dont lose weight” PLEASE PLEASE DONT TELL ME THAT!!

      eat chicken and tuna there high in protein which is amzaing for weight loss
      milk helps build up your body
      drink water
      drink green tea or herbal or fruit tea.

    Dieting/ weight loss tips for prom?
    Hi, I’m a SR. in high school and my prom is on April 9. I’ve gain some weight over the years and for prom I’d like to healthy and fit, I know that it’s not a long time till, only three months but I’d gladly appreciate tips and advise to help me lose the weight and be in shape by the time my prom comes, I’m looking for a realistic goal to achieve and that’s 20 pounds.
    I want to know exercises that really work you out and good motivational sites maybe.
    I’m really dumb when it comes to dieting and food and have tried many stupid diets so I’m looking for a realistic diet that will keep me healthy and energized. So anyone who has lost weight the right way and thinks they can help me please do, I’d gladly appreciate it!
    And also, My arms are bigger then they used to be and I’m scared to wear a dress that is sleeveless which most prom dresses are so I’d like to know if it’s possible to maybe make my arms smaller by then and what exercise I can do to make this possible

    • ANSWER:
      alright when it comes to weight loss, its cardio, cardio, cardio :) You need to burn more calories then you take in. This is easiest obtained by mainly running, sports that involve alot of constant running, and aerobics. Whenever you get the chance, just get some cardio in.
      A really good workout schedule for you might be going for a long jog 4 times a week. This jog should be long enough where you pretty much feel like your about to die, haha. If you need some good workout plans, google “fast weight loss workout plan” and you will be able to find some suggestions.

      The cardio should take some of the wight off your arms too, but you can find plenty of arm exercises to do that will target exactly what you want. google “exercises to loose arm weight”.

      With the diet, i would just try this to make your self a bit healthier

      Think of 3 foods you eat almost daily that you know are bad for you…… okay got em?
      Now EVERY OTHER DAY, (not every day) don’t eat those foods, instead eat a fruit or veggy.
      you could do this every day, and you would prob be eliminating alot of bad stuff fom your diet, but doing this can be a very drastic change, and most people arent able to stick with it. But every other day should add a bit more health to your diet as well as help you loose weight easier.

      good luck :)

Diet Weight Loss Supplements Work

There are so many different weight loss pills and diet supplements available online that it is practically impossible to sort out the good ones – the ones that really work and help people, and the bad ones – those that don’t work and are complete waste of money.

The funny thing is that the trashy diet pills products prevail in number over the good ones. This is due to the facts that you don’t need time for tests on a new crappy weight loss pill product. Just warp it up in a shiny pack with beautiful name and a bunch of unknown “herbal” and “healthy” ingredients list on the pack and you are done. Ready for the next “great” weight loss product? Oh, yeah, you’ve got plenty of time.

This is pretty much the scheme. But don’t fall into the trap of the number of ingredients, the pretty catchy name of the product, or the multiple ads you see all over, or the number of items that are said to be sold already. All these mean nothing, so don’t allow them to blur your judgment and to end up buying some crappy product that promises magic weight loss results in no time.

On the contrary – the good weight loss pills products are made of herbal and originally grown herbs, or from imported ones from China, Japan, Africa and other parts of the world specialized in particular herbs grow. The chemical tests and analysis of the ingredients and their blend takes time. The tests on the final product also take time.

In fact, it may take a couple of years before a diet pill product actually hit the market. But when it does you can be 100% sure that this weight loss pill product is completely safe and features unique properties that can help you lose weight successfully without unwanted side effects.

This is the advantage of the good diet pills – the quality, the tests that prove they really work and the guaranteed safe weight loss effect.

Let’s get to the point… Which weight loss diet pills truly deserve your attention and aren’t just hype. Also are proven to work and have certificates for maximum quality. Well, our scientists have been doing tests and researches all the time, here is what we recommend:

Hoodia Gordonii Plus thermogenic ingredients will support you through your weight loss journey.

Hoodia Chaser

Many people would prefer this liquid form of pure Hoodia Gordonii extract, as it is much faster absorbed into your body and starts working immediately. It is better that the Hoodia Gordonii Plus pills, but as long as time to take effect is concerned. Just a few drops of the Hoodia Chaser liquid curb your appetite within no time.

Which form you choose – the pill or the liquid, it’s up to you. In either case you get what you are paying for – successful and safe weight loss results without starvation, hard dieting and bad mood.

Avatrim Dietary Supplement

Avatrim is the new hit on the market for weight loss products containing green tea. It’s no wonder, though. The Green Tea 300 weight loss system is gone for good and now is time for the new, better product – Avatrim dietary supplement.

It has pretty unique blend that contains pure green tea extract combined with vitamins, amino acids and other natural and very potent thermogenic ingredients that are clinically proven to help you lose weight.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    what are some over the counter weight loss/diet supplements? how well do they work with diet and exercise?

    • ANSWER:
      Two words for with Alli (orlistat) –> Anal leakage

      This drug limits the amount of fat you can consume. Your body may not be able to contain much excess causing the above.

      Your best bet is to lose the weight through diet & exercise. There are no quick and easy fixes.

  2. QUESTION:
    Question about weight loss and diet pills/supplements ?
    do all those diet pills/weight loss supplements really work???
    like acai berry, hydroxycut etc…

    ive been kinda “fighting ” with my weight for over a year
    it started last year when i broke my neck and i was out of school for like almost 9-10 months

    i was a little depressed then so i lookd for comfort in food and i gain like 50-60 pounds
    i was 260 now im 210

    it took me over 7 months to lose that weight now i feel a lot better but i have had it enough with all those diets

    im 18 im 5’8 and as i said i weight 210 i would like to lose at least like 10-15 pounds more and i had enough of those diets
    im not a sporty/athletic kind of person i mean i like playing badminton and rollerblading but now in winter theres nothing to do

    i walk a lot

    so are those diest pills/supplements really good
    i mean from all those commercials it looks like its working or is it just brainwashing the people ??

    • ANSWER:
      It is brainwashing the masses! so NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I would not take them!

      Most over the counter weight loss drugs may suppress hunger and increase your metabolism; however, this only works while you are on them! Once you stop taking them, your weight will start to increase! THEREFORE, they do not equal weight loss!!!!!!! In addiction, those weight loss pills can become addictive!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Furthermore, they can cause serious health problems!!!!! For example, until like really recently ephedra was used in many weight loss drugs! In fact, Steve Bechler is a good example of this! He died after using weight loss drugs!

      Okay, let us say you are talking about like Stackers, Mini Thins, and Fat burners. You are probably thinking oh but this must be safe because they are “natural” WRONG!!! These things can be even more dangerous/deadly than prescription meds. because they aren’t inspected for purity and accuracy of contents, as well as potency of the ingredients.

      The FDA has limited power to regulate these “diet supplements ect…”

      Okay if these isn’t convincing enough:
      The dietary supplements can cause/are linked to strokes, heart attacks, hepatitis, headaches, anxiety, insominia…

      Other supplements have caused kidney damage, renal failure, kidney cancer..

      If that still isn’t convincing enough, which I really really hope it is, those dietary supplements haven’t been proven to effective in helping to lose weight!

      Well, I could go on and on!

      The point is, if you really want to lose weight and keep it off, the only true way is through eating healthy (limiting calories, limiting saturated and trans fats, ect…) and exercise!

      There are a lot of ways you can loss weight, which aren’t healthy, and they are not going to lead to long term weight loss! However, the only thing that will result is in temporary weight loss, and you will probably gain even more weight back than you lost! And yo-yo dieting is more dangerous for you body than actually remaining overweight!!!

      I hope that you really read this, because taking those pills is not worth it!! With the chances of getting diseases/illness/addiction, with them not really working, it isn’t worth it!!

      You say you like to walk, rollerblade, and play badminton! Participating in this activities are helping your physical fitness and are sporty too! I am sure you have a like a skating place somewhere, go there and skate! Or, you could use a gym at school.

      However, simply going for walks, playing badminto, rollerblading, and eating a healthy balanced diet will certainly help you lose weight! In addition, making sure you are not consuming more calories than you need for your activity level is key too!! Another key part to weight loss, is managing you stress level! You need to learn to cope with stress and to not let it build up!

      You can lose the weight! I know you can!! The hard part is just getting started on exercising and eating a balanced meal; however, once you start you will see improvements! However, using weight loss drugs is not going to help you; it will only lead to disappointment!

      You can do it the healthy way! I know you can; I have 100% faith in you!

      As John N commented you should only lose one to two pounds a week!! Listen to John N!!

      I just do not want to see you developing an illness from these drugs!

  3. QUESTION:
    Do weight loss supplements and diets work?
    Do the advertised pills, drops, diet programs like jenny craig actually work? I am trying to lose weight and the simple way..by cardio and eating a bit less but just out of curiosity wanna know if it is healthy to try the afore mentioned things and if they really do work or just make u feel good for some time till u regain all ur weight

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like you’re doing it right.

      Most pills and programs will have disclaimers in the advertising saying “Results not typical” or “With diet and exercise” for a reason. If you need help controlling your portions something like Jenny Craig or WeightWatchers can be helpful, especially with guidance keeping your intake well balanced and with moral support, but it all comes down to reducing (or modifying) what you eat and being more active.

      It can take a while and you will hit walls and plateaus, but keep at it!

      If you do decide you need additional help (pills or drops) I’d ask your doctor and steer clear of people who point to the same web site (designed, of course, to sell you crap) for just about every answer they give.

  4. QUESTION:
    Do weight-loss supplements make you lose fat all over your body? How does it work exactly?
    I want to lose weight without losing certain aspects of my body, such as my breasts and behind. I just want to lose the stubborn belly fat. I regularly exercise and eat right. Which diet supplements would fulfill this?
    oh, and I don’t want to lose mass amounts of weight. I’m only looking to lose 10 pounds. I know if you lose like, 25+ then your breasts would shrink. I’m wondering about smaller-scale weight loss

    • ANSWER:
      You can’t control where you lose the weight, naturally women and will lose weight from the breast no matter what same with their butt bc thats where most of their fat is at. Also diet supplements dont work you need to just work out hard and eat right. Burn more than you eat

  5. QUESTION:
    Has anyone experienced with diets or weight loss supplements?
    Does anyone know of any diets or weight loss supplements that have worked for them?

    • ANSWER:
      Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, squats, brisk walking and power walking all help for weight loss but dieting helps more.

      One of the healthiest weight loss diets is the DASH diet.

      The healthy DASH diet can help you lose weight safely and effectively, lower your cholesterol and lower your blood pressure.

      It is based on an eating plan rich in fruits and vegetables, and low-fat or non-fat dairy, with whole grains. It is a high fiber, low to moderate fat diet, and is rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

      You can see further details in a web search for “dash diet” + “lose weight”.

  6. QUESTION:
    Do any weight loss pills/supplements actually work?
    I need to lose approx. 140lbs over the summer. I am already on a rice diet and exercising more frequently at the company gym. Are there any diet supplements that have proven to be effective? With so many of them out there claiming to work, and knowing that most do not, has anyone used one that REALLY works? Thx in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      Do NOT take diet pills! They are dangerous!!

      Last year I was visiting my parents and took diet pills on top on my exercise routine and normal diet. I was 26 at the time, 5’11, 180 lbs. By week three I was sick. I had diarrhea, dry heaves, dizziness, headaches, and a general feeling of being sick. I thought I had caught the flu or something. I had lost 13 lbs in 4 days. One morning I told my mom I didn’t feel good. My vision kept blacking out and I felt (for lack of a better way to say it) stoned. Later that afternoon I was walking from the bathroom to my bedroom (a 5 foot walk) and I passed out. I was rushed to the hospital emergency where they did a bunch of tests on me.

      My pulse was up to 120, My blood pressure was 150/40, they had to start me on an IV, the did an EKG on me, took blood and urine samples, and a whole barrage of other tests.

      They finally got me stabilized and said that I was dehydrated and malnutritioned. I told him that I took diet pills. When I mentioned diet pill, the doctors face lit up and said that’s why. He said they can cause a whole bunch of health problems, including death. He told me to toss the diet pills or next time I might not be so lucky.

      I was kept in the hospital for almost 10 hours, given 3 or 4 IVs, potassium, juices, and monitored (by the EKG, blood pressure, and heart rate machines) every 15 minutes.

      Please take my story as a warning. If you seriously want to loose weight there are better ways (I know because I’ve lost weight after this)

      The quickest way to lose weight is to cut out red meats, starches, breads, sugars, alcohol, and sodas.

      Eat veggies (salads are good), soups, and drink TONS of water. If you get hungry between a meal, drink water to fill up.

      In moderation eat white meats, and fruits (fruits contain natural sugars, and that can put on weight)

      Practice portion control. Yes, you’ll feel hungry at first, but think of your goal, and soon your stomach will start shrinking and you won’t have that feeling anymore.

      Eat 5 times a day. A small breakfast. A mid-morning snack, such as an apple. A small lunch. A mid-afternoon snack, such as carrots. A lite dinner. Do not eat any later than 7pm (6pm is better.)

      Go exercise for at least an hour – two a day, incorporating weight training along with your cardio. Cardio helps to melt the fat, while weight training builds muscle. Muscle burns fat, even when you are resting. You get the idea. It also gives tone and definition. Also do a few yoga and pilates exercises to help tone those hard to reach and stubborn areas

  7. QUESTION:
    what do you think about the acai blueberry diet? does it really work? are any weight loss supplements safe?

    • ANSWER:

      Hopefully that helps.

  8. QUESTION:
    Best diet pill/weight loss supplement out there?
    I work out 5-6 days a week and eat a very clean, healthy diet 6 days of the week (my 7th is a cheat day, but i don’t go too crazy or stuff myself). I’ve been doing this for months now and have lost weight but I’ve hit a plateau. I’d like to lose around 3-5 more pounds. Is there any diet pill (hate to utter those words) or supplement on the market that can aid in weight loss or fat reduction? I took CLA for a while and found it toned me up a little, buI was wondering if there is anything else that works. I’d prefer something without caffeine, as I am sensitive to it. Like I said, I dont have much weight to lose, just want to get rid of those couple extra pounds and get leaner. Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      I think the others are right, why spend money to lose just a couple of more pounds. Have a look at this iste, there is a tips section that could probably help you lose that last little bit.

  9. QUESTION:
    Do ANY weight loss supplements actually work?
    I am looking for something natural, that will give my weight loss a bit of a kick start. I am really urgently needing to lose some weight and I am worried that exercise and diet just aren’t enough to get me over that edge. Does anyone know any good reliable natural things I can take to give my body that extra boost it needs? I drink green tea now, anything else?
    P.S. I know there is sooo much junk out there. I am not looking for a “magic pill”.

    • ANSWER:
      no ,

  10. QUESTION:
    Do weight loss supplements work and does anyone have experience with them?
    I have not been able to find any definitive answers online. The best products seem to be those that contain Conjugated Linoleic Acids. I have no idea. First off, I am well aware that regardless if they work or not, you simply cannot lose weight without eating healthier food, and lots of exercise. Trust me I do both, I have started eating better of the last month or so,protein, fruits, vegetables, water, not too many carbs or starches and no junk food, also exercise, 6 days a week for the last 1.5 months, I have lost 15lbs(water weight). The fact remains I am overweight. My question is, with having a good diet and doing vigorous exercise will diet supplements work, or does anyone have any experience using them in that combination only, not interested in just taking the pills by themselves which would be useless. I would like to know if they work, how they work, how long have they worked, good results, poor results, any bad side effects. Experience would be good or if anyone just knows more about these supplements and their effects. Really hoping for some knowledgeable answers.

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve tried many supplements and commercial diet programs but none worked for me over the long term. Gina Kolata in her well-researched book “Rethinking Thin” describes the failure of most diets for the vast majority of people over a period of 2-3 years. CLA appears to have some potentially serious health side effects:

      http://www.naturalnews.com/010126.html

      I finally lost 90 pounds and kept it off by eating what’s known as “whole plant based” foods. Essentially you shun all processed foods and most supplements. I avoid most oils/fats, refined sugars/starches, and salt.

      “Fasting and Eating for Health” by Dr. Joel Fuhrman

      Searching the Internet for a “whole plant based diet” will also provide you with a very effective diet that I swear by. The reason I continue to eat this way is because of how good I feel when I eat correctly. This is also called a “vegan diet”, however, I am not so focused on the animal rights aspects of eating and living.

  11. QUESTION:
    Are there any Weight loss supplements or energy boosters that work?
    I am a 34 year old mother of three. I recently had to start taking Kepra for seizures. I have went from 138 up to 179 in three months. I have had my seizure medication switched due to the weight gain. However, I have not lost any of the weight I gained. I eat very little, so dieting alone does not work. I have no energy. Any suggestions for increasing metabolism or exercises focusing on stomach and hips?

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve taken Keppra, so I know that diet and exercise don’t work for that… I found that if I woke up and drank as much water as I could and didn’t eat breakfast for 45 minutes it helped suppress my appetite throughout the day. Just make sure you drink as much water as you can. Avoid products with caffeine in them (that can induce seizures, not to mention losing weight causes your body chemistry to change. The less stress, the less likely you’re going to have a problem). I would also try to start eating more fresh and raw fruits and veggies. Blueberries are good. They have a bit of sugar, but they’ll keep you clean internally. Try to walk for at least thirty minutes in a straight shot every day. The best time for exercise is after the water in the morning. Nothing too strenuous even. Simply walking will wake up your metabolism for the day.

  12. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of any weight loss supplements that actually work?
    I know that diet and exercise are needed too… I just want something that works.

    • ANSWER:
      Resveratrol and Weight Loss

      Resveratrol Antioxidants and Weight Loss: A Good Pairing?The golden rule in weight loss is pretty simple: take in fewer calories than you expend in exercise. However, as any dieter will tell you, it’s far from easy. Americans spend billions of dollars a year on weight loss supplements, exercise programs and other diet aids—and still we can’t seem to win the battle of the bulge—even when we get desperate enough to try risky surgery or fad diets.Recently a new product has come to light that may help people trying to lose weight stay on the healthy end of the spectrum: Resveratrol Select, which is unlike many diet supplements in that it uses a combination of natural and herbal ingredients designed to help the body stay healthy while losing weight.How? By mimicking certain aspects of the Mediterranean diet.Studies have shown that part of America’s war with weight lies in the uniquely modern American combination of stressful lifestyle and fast-food consumption, and that the Mediterranean diet and lifestyle seem to be more conducive to healthier weight levels and longevity. In fact, much as been made on the news in recent months of the purported “French Paradox,” (how the French eat a high-fat diet, enjoy rich desserts, drink wine and still have better cardiovascular health than the rest of us). One of the biggest differences between the American and French diet seems to be the wine consumption, and red wine (a staple on most Mediterranean tables) contains one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, resveratrol, which is a key ingredient in Resveratrol Select.In addition to wine, resveratrol is also found in grape skins, blueberries, cranberries and other plants, and recent animal and in vitro studies indicate that it can have a positive effect on helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, supporting insulin health and optimizing metabolic and immune pathways that protect cells and improve mitochondrial function. * And one capsule of Resveratrol Select includes as much resveratrol as 200 glasses of wine—without the added calories that alcohol can add to the waistline.But consuming resveratrol alone isn’t enough to help with weight loss—so the manufacturers of Resveratrol Select also added a different type of antioxidant, Green Tea Extract (EGCG), which could make a big difference. Over time, green tea consumption helps increase metabolism, burn fat and reduce fat storage due to its caffeine and L-theanin content, which can be pivotal in helping to maintain energy for exercise. *Resveratrol Select combines these two powerful antioxidants with yet another energy boosting ingredient, Chromium, a niacin-based mineral that plays an important role in how the body uses insulin to burn sugars, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins for energy.*Although relatively new to the market, Resveratrol Select seems to be making a big splash, and many people are taking advantage of the free trial offer to see how well the product works for them. The trial offer also includes two bonus tools to help with weight loss: an e-book with over 70 weight loss tips, and a weight loss visualization audio.Of course, consuming fewer calories while burning more is the most efficient form of weight loss, and it’s always a good idea to inform your doctor before taking a weight loss supplement, but this new combination herbal supplement is worth a look for those concerned about maintaining good health while losing weight.

  13. QUESTION:
    short cuts in weight loss/diet pills/exercise/supplements, what am i doing wrong, what more can i do? ?
    i was fat, now I’m much less fat; only a few pounds over weight, between 7 and 15 depending on the week

    i’m 18, i train at a mma gym twice a week, and go for half hour+ run-walks 3 times a week

    during the mma training on Monday & Wednesday i go from 6 – 9 pm, with 1 kick boxing class and one Pankration (wrestling / Brazilian jujitsu / full contact ring fighting ) class

    this gym is not some sissy bow 30 times over the course of the night, do 10 push ups 10 high kicks and go home gym, its the gym that has produce 3 provincial boxing and mma champs, and you can feel the intensity of the work out

    before each of those sessions i take 2 scoops of no-xplode by bsn, it keeps me awake for a few hours after that (don’t get to sleep before about 3am) but the additionally endurance is measurable. and worth it for me
    right after i get home and shower i have a protein shake, and a hour later a creatine drink

    my diet is not super complex, i try to follow the creed “eat food, not to much, mostly veggies” or at least i try to,
    i eat very little red meat, and no wheat at all, grains come from brown rice, rice-milk and rice cakes

    only recently started the run-walks which go for 30 min + (47 today) and im starting with 1 min of running and 2 min of walking, i have a guide to tell me when and how to change it over the next 14 weeks

    my goals are simply “get in better shape”
    i want to be able to move, look good, feel healthy, my actions are working but there doing so very slowly so, if anyone has any educated (formal or from experience based) advice on how i can improve my health from training times, workout styles, supplement advice (are diet pills like atro-phex for me?) or anything someone has i would love to hear it

    • ANSWER:
      Hey there,

      I’ve tried just about every diet pill under the sun, and I can tell you that the only things I’ve ever had success with were natural supplements like acai berry. I tried a lot of the products like Hydroxycut, but they only made me dizzy and nauseous, not skinny! :) lol

      I’d recommend you check out things like acai berry or colon cleanse products that help to boost energy levels and speed up metabolism naturally. Add them to a strictly healthy diet and a lot of exercise, and you should start to see results pretty quickly. Remember – there are no miracle pills, so if you want to lose weight, you can’t just sit around on your butt all day eating pizza!

      Anyways, let me know if you have any other questions. I’d be happy to talk to you about the plan that worked for me.

  14. QUESTION:
    Which weight loss supplements work?
    I am an active young adult looking for help to lose a few extra pounds. I exercise regularly and eat decently. Over the last year I went to college and gained about 20 pounds or so. I am working to burn them all off this summer, but I was wondering if there were any diet supplements that can assist me with this. I spend most outdoors running around with 2 preschoolers, take walks at least 3-4 times a week, and do gymnastics almost daily. I also do not eat that bad. My doctor actually said I did not eat enough and added an extra protein shake to my daily meal plan.

    I am not looking for the wonder drug to take all that weight off. I am just struggling because I cannot make any other extreme changes and my doctor would like to see me lose about 25 pounds in the next 2 months or so.
    Running outside is hard for me. I have season asthma affected by my allergies so after about 10 mins of a light jog I am dizzy and purple in the face and meds haven’t seemed to help much. Also I go to the gym at school, but when I am home, as a college student it is too expensive for me to join.

    • ANSWER:

  15. QUESTION:
    Are there any weight loss supplements that actually work? acai berries? hydroxycut?
    I have a pretty good diet ( I do cheat here and there ) and I exercise pretty frequently. Try to do an hour a day, 4-5 days a week. I’m just looking for that extra boost to help me lose weight. Have any of you tried a product that worked for you? Any suggestions would be great?

    • ANSWER:
      The US is one of the most obese countries in the developed world so don’t you think if there was a supplement that worked, that gave the dieter that “extra boost”, you would know about it?? And, don’t you think the manufacturer of that supplement would be making $billions and spending a ton or money on advertising to make sure you knew about it?

      It doesn’t take a genius to deduce the truth about fads, gimmicks, scams, and quick fixes for whatever it is that ails us. Supplements sellers of today are the old snake oil salesmen of yesterday.

      No, supplements don’t help lose fat.

      Good luck and good health!!

      PS: Protein has the same number of calories as pure sugar (4cal/gm) so don’t listen to anyone telling you to take protein supplements.

  16. QUESTION:
    I’m looking for a diet supplement that is really good with weight loss, any suggestions?
    I’m 17 (almost 18), so I can’t buy any of those dietary supplements that are behind the glass doors, but I want to know if anyone has some successful experience with diet/weight-loss pills to recommend for me? I have a workout plan but I really need weight-loss pills and need ones that will work (i’m not just going to take the pills, I’ll continue my daily exercises and correct eating, i’m good with that). Please help me out, I heard Acai Berry supplements were useful??

    • ANSWER:
      We should all learn something every day and hopefully you will learn this.
      There is no such thing as a diet pill, liquid, powder, or fat burner supplement!
      Got it?
      Think about it. If any of this garbage worked, why would 2/3 of the adults in the US be overweight, obese, or morbidly obese? We would be lined up without having to spend a dime advertising if someone had the magic formula.
      Alli is the only over the counter weight loss pill approved by the FDA. There are only three prescription weight loss medications approved. Do you think that if any of them REALLY worked we would have a billion a year industry in “weight loss” supplements?
      The big three pharmaceuticals would dominate the market.
      Approved or otherwise, none of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program.
      So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money?
      You will be spending somewhere between and per day on a product that is not approved or guaranteed to do anything!
      The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin.

      And yes they are dangerous. Heart, liver, kidney, intestinal, and neurological damage and death have all been the result of diet pills. That is why the FDA hasn’t approved any new ones for 14 years.
      These supplement manufacturers are using human guinea pigs (you) for these products. As long as no one gets sick or dies, and they don’t get fined or shut down they will keep making and selling this junk. Whether it works or not.

      This whole acai berry thing is a scam.
      Acai berries are high in antioxidants.
      A diet high in antioxidant foods can increase your metabolism.
      An increase in metabolism can burn more calories.
      More calories burned can result in weight loss.
      Acai berries cause weight loss!
      That is the big “stretch” these con artists are selling.
      The same stretch of the imagination applies to the green tea, maquiberry, hoodia, moyoberry, gojiberry, fruta planta, and african mango seed extract pills out there.

      I say it over and over and over. “If any one of these products really worked, why are there so many?”

      The results of 100 years of weight loss research!

      Kind of like buying a lottery ticket isn’t it?

  17. QUESTION:
    weight loss supplements?
    what is the best and fastest working weight loss or diet pills/supplements that are not that expensive and that i can get at a local drug store.

    • ANSWER:
      The spam answers have been reported and deleted.

      Diet pills are a waste of money, don’t work, and some are actually bad for you.
      No pill, potion or supplement will help.

      All you need to lose weight is a good healthy diet and exercise – it takes time :)

  18. QUESTION:
    what diet pill/ weight loss supplement works and i can get at the drug store instead of online.?
    i want to be able to go to the store and get one instead of getting it online. Please help

    • ANSWER:
      Green Tea tablets work really well for me. My favorite is Spring Valley Green Tea 315 mg with Hoodia. It’s important to get the ones with hoodia. It really does make a huge difference. You can get them anywhere. I got mine at Walmart, though. They are cheap and work-as long as you combine them with a healthy diet and exercise. But I see a huge difference in my appetite when I take them and when I don’t. Of course, they are natural and better for you than other pills on the market. And I love tea, but these tablets work better than actually drinking green tea for me.

      I also like Mega T Green Tea Tablets. They do a pretty good job of suppressing your appetite, but what I really like is that it gives you lots of energy without making you jittery or sick or causing insomnia. I can workout out twice as long if I take those.

      I’m not sure if you would consider those actual diet pills, though. But I do know that I tried regular diet pills in the past and they left me so jittery and shaky, I couldn’t think straight. These are natural (not sure if Mega T is 100% natural though-but I have seen no bad side effects) and good for you.

  19. QUESTION:
    I have hit the weight-loss plateau in my work out routine. What do I do?
    So my workout routine is this- 30 min of cardio (usually eliptical at 230 watts) m-f and then I alternate muscle groups daily, but I lift weight for another 30 min. On saturdays, I attend a body pump class. During my cardio, I burn between 450 and 500 calories, and I sweat like crazy. I don’t want to increase my cardio more than 150 min a week, because personal trainers have advised me not to. I try to work abs a little bit everyday. I am doing a lower calorie diet (1500-1700 a day), and I try to eat something every 2 or 3 hours to keep my metabolism up. I lost 20lbs in 2 months, and now I can’t seem to loose any more weight. I want to loose weight naturally (meaning I don’t take weight-loss supplements) so I just stick to a daily multi-vitamin. I only want to loose like 2 lbs a week or so, and not much more. So what should I do to start loosing weight again?? I’m stuck… Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)
    Ok, some things I forgot… I turn 21 this month, and I already eat alot of fresh fruits and vegatables, and alot of chicken breast because of the low fat and high protein content.

    • ANSWER:
      You are on the right track. I don’t have time to explain everything in detail, but the following is my standard answer for people who want to lose weight in a healthy way. Read on!.
      *If want to get fit and/or lose weight, here’s my Weight Loss Program through Body Building and Nutrition. It works! First, drop the scales for a couple of weeks. Don’t think about the number. Focus on how you feel and look. DON’T use Diet Pills. They are bad for you. Most of them are just a scam or they are addictive. Counting calories is a pain in the neck. It will drive you nuts. But, losing weight is simple. You just have to do the right things.
      *(If you are older and have not exercised in many years you should see your doctor and have a stress test done to be sure your heart is ok before starting this program. Also, walking eveyday is a good lifelong
      practice.)
      *Fad diets sometimes work but, you can be sure that at least 25% of the weight you lose will be muscle. Then when you stop the diet you will gain back all of the weight you lost but no muscle. So, you will have 25% more fat than you did before! Fad diets just aren’t worth the bother.
      *Fasting or skipping meals will teach your body that famine is common in your world and your body will begin to store more fat to get you through the next period when food is not available. It’s better to eat healthy foods often to teach your body that food is plentiful and that
      there is no need to store calories as fat. Eat a vegetablw or frui every two hours.
      *Here’s a simple trick that can help you lose weight without doing anything else. Drink a litre of water as soon as you wake up in the morning and then drink two more throughout the day. You’ll notice a difference the first month.
      *Here’s another trick that works. For every pound of muscle that you add, your body will burn 3000 calories (1lb) of fat every day. That means that just by having an extra pound of muscle on your body you will burn a pound of fat every day! So, add muscle!
      *This is the fastest way to add a pound of muscle. Squats and Pushups!
      You do them on alternate days; squats one day, pushups the next. And you do them SuperSlow style. That is, you do the easy part twice as slow as the hard part. That way you fatigue the muscles quickly. Then you rest the muscles for 48 hours which gives the body a chance to make new
      muscles.
      *Squats should be done with a wide stance and all the way to the floor. Pushups the with palms shoulder width apart and all the way to the floor, then all the way up. Use the full range of motion of the muscle group you are trying to develop. If you are too weak to do pushups, try them with your knees on the floor or do them with your feet on the floor and your hands an the bed.
      *The idea is to tire the muscles out completely so do a set of squats until you can’t do another, then rest for a couple of minutes and do it again. Do that 3 times and you’re done for the day. The following day, don’t do squats but do pushups. Do them the same way, going down twice as slow as you come up.
      *You will lose weight fast, unless you add more junk food and fat to your diet. Instead, eat at least 5 to 7 different raw vegetables and fruits every day. Cut out anything that comes in a bag, box, can, bottle or any kind of package. In other words, cut out all processed foods, soft drinks and sweets. Eat more grains and less red meat. Check out the Food Pyramid.
      *If you really want to give your body the best possible chance to be healthy and fat free, go to infinity2.com and order their weight loss formula and Essentials for Life. That will give you all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and probiotics that your body needs and will keep you feeling better and healthier. They also have a Proteabolic Mass Formula for serious athletes who want to build muscle mass quickly and
      safely. It’s pure nutrition and no drugs.
      *Weight loss without exercise is not good. You need to eat healthy, exercise and get your rest. You will feel better, look better and be healthier. Try it for a week or two. You will notice a difference. You will feel better and that will motivate you to continue.
      *Losing weight only in specific areas of the body is impossible. You can’t just lose weight around the belly, for instance. So, if you want tight, rippled abs, do crunches and leg raises every other day the way I described above.
      *One last point, stretching is essential for a number of reasons. Pick up a copy of ”Stretching” by Bob Anderson. Read the intro and understand his reasoning before you do the exercisis. Good luck!
      *This information is based on my personal and professional experience. *Check these links:

  20. QUESTION:
    Do weight loss medicines and supplements actually work?
    i know they have to be used with a well balanced diet and exercise but i’m curious, do they actually help? or is it just the exercise and diet? and if they do work, which ones are best?

    • ANSWER:
      Even with Alli and prescription Orlistat you are advised to take exercise and change your diet. If you eat too much fat you can get embarrassing leakage from the butt.
      All the others are useless. some contain caffeine or it’s equivalent, some contain bulking agents, all tell you to change diet and lifestyle. You do the work, they pocket the money.
      The testimonials online are pure fiction and the photographs digitally manipulated.
      The only thing that burns fat is exercise. The only thing that boosts metabolism is exercise. Frequent small meals might do so a bit as the process of digestion uses calories.

  21. QUESTION:
    Have you had any success with weight loss supplements? Like SlimQuick? or any that didn’t work for you?
    Yes, I know and totally agree a healthy diet and exercise is necessary for weight loss and maintanence but I was thinking about adding some type of weight loss pill of my regimine. I was thinking about trying SlimQuick.

    I have been dieting and exercising for a month now, the first week I lost 2 pounds and since then only 1 pound a week, I’d like to average more like 2 pounds a week to get to my goal in 4-5 months.

    I’d love to hear if you have a favorite or one you tried and didn’t like.

    What is a cheap diet supplement that works in the aiding of weight loss (with healthy dieting and exercise)?
    I don’t trust the products that guarantee immediate effects.

    I already use Tonalin® CLA, which seems to work (and I’ve seen it on many reliable sites), but I was wondering if there were any others.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there
      I have had great results using Proactol which is a natural fat binder and also helped me control my food cravings. when buying this product you will actually receive some pretty cool bonuses like free healthy recipes, an ebook to help you with your weight loss efforts plus some really good exercise videos so you get all the aspects important when wanting to lose weight:
      control of calories, exercise, healthy eating, restriction of the bad fats plus an appetite suppressant effect which will help you to maintain your healthy diet and turn it into a habit.

      Like I said, I have used the product myself and noticed that the longer I was using the better the results became (I had to lose atleast 65 lbs and did reach that, now I have been able to maintain it for almost a year :D and even still going down slowly)

      I have added some useful resources in the source box, one is a faq about proactol if you want to check it out, the other is a coupon discount page so that you can get it a lot cheaper.

      I hope this helps!

    • ANSWER:
      Loosing weight fast is always an unhealthy thing.
      The best thing to loose and hold a healthy weight is healthy food, less sugar, lots of drinking water, and sports.
      There are many diets who tell you that you can loose a lot of weight in no time. And it is working, but you are doing no good to your body. And there’s also the Jojo-effect.
      Diet has to begin in your head. And you already started to think about your nutrition. That’s an important step. It is too easy just to make a magazine-diet for 2-3 weeks and loose some weight. But it will come back soon again. If you are over-thinking your nutrition and activity, you will have a constantly good result. Isn’t that much better and healthier than a crash-diet ?
      Good Luck and Take care :-)

    How does the Fish Oil Diet work for weight loss? ?
    How many supplements of Omeg 3 fish oil do you need to take per day? Does anyone know the particulars?
    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Never trust anything that’s called “The _______ Diet.” Usually it just means somebody somewhere is making money off you.

      With regards to fish oil, I do take it daily. 2-3 capsules is sufficient. It won’t make you lose weight all by itself though. You need proper nutrition and exercise.

  26. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of a good weight loss supplement that doesn’t have any harsh stimulants?
    Most of the diet supplements I’ve tried don’t work, and they make me feel cracked out of my mind all the time.

    • ANSWER:
      There is a brand new product out there that just came out of an extensive open label weight loss study that proved to have amazing results.

      The product is called LIVEA and is manufactured by a company called WellWorld Science. The product was developed by a gastroenterologist with 30 years of scientific research behind him.

      I’ve been taking this product and I LOVE it, it’s unlike any other on the market because it does NOT contain stimulants, caffeine, fat blockers or even fiber. There are no synthetic ingredients. It’s completely safe and natural, no adverse side effects, no jitters, no oily discharges.

      I’ve been taking it for about one month and I’ve lost 8 pounds, weight loss is about 2 pounds per week.

      I can’t say enough about this product, it’s the best, I love it. I feel healthy, I’m fitting into my favorite jeans and I have more energy.

      I highly recommend it. They have a website up now, www.Livea.com

  27. QUESTION:
    Starting to work full-time: perfect opportunity to start a weight loss diet, whats a good program? More inside?
    I’ll be waking up at 6 am, dropping my daughter (who I had 8 1/2 months ago and I still breastfeed, so keep breastfeeding in mind) off at school (child care) at 7:30 and going to work right across the street by 8 am. I work until 4:30 and will pick up my daughter right after by 5 pm. So I need an all day diet program. I will still be breastfeeding by pumping my milk. She eats a healthy menu of foods other than milk so my milk is just an addition and a supplement to her diet, so I’m not super worried about it. I’m not looking for an expensive diet program and I definitely don’t have time to go to meetings like weight watchers has. Also-is there a safe/healthy/cheap detox program that I should do before starting? I start on Monday! Thanks!

  28. QUESTION:
    Weight loss supplement “Acai” endorsed by Oprah?
    I have been seeing and hearing about this supplement for weight loss called Acai. Apparently you mix it with your water/juice and you start loosing the pounds. (44 in 3 months was her example) I have done fad diets, used weight loss supplements, had meals delivered to my door and ordered weight loss programs from infomercials.These didn’t work for long. NOTHING has worked better than the traditional diet and exercise and have recently lost 35 pounds already. So it seems that Oprah is endorsing this product called “Acai”. You would think since Oprah is one of the most powerful women in America that she wouldn’t put her name on something that wouldn’t work, right? I mean, she doesn’t need any more money! So you think it really works then??? I need to get rid of this dang little bit of tummy fat, and that’s where it works, on your love handles. Hmmmm……

    • ANSWER:
      What can I say, Oprah is right this time. Acai really is an awesome food supplement that everyone should be using.

      You have made a good choice by looking into acai. Especially if you tend to look towards building a healthy future rather than immediate gains. I mean, you will still benefit from acai’s fat burning effects immediately, but acai should be taken more for its long term antioxidant properties than for its fat loss potential.

      I recommend you get a free trial of Extreme Acai from the source link below. This is the product I use, and honestly I feel better every day. If you don’t like it, just don’t reorder it… but you’ll like it.

      Now let me tell you why I recommend Extreme Acai over all other acai supplements…

      Firstly, Extreme Acai is a 100% acai capsule (pill) type supplement. Capsules are superior to juices, cleansers, and detoxifiers. Juices are diluted and are filled with sugar, cleansers and detox supplements tend to promote abdominal discomfort, and they are all way overpriced. Most likely you will only find sugar filled acai juice supplements at your local GNC.

      Two weekends ago I attempted to find a good acai supplement at GNC, Vitamin World, Hannafords, and Shaws, but I was unable to find something that was cheap, high quality, and not filled with sugar and other fillers. I am going to keep getting Extreme Acai for now.

      Secondly, Extreme Acai ranks in the top 3, usually at #1, of all acai supplements in most acai product polls that I’ve found online.

      How good is acai for your health?

      Acai berries have far more antioxidants than any other fruit. Even more than blueberries! Besides that, the nutrients in acai berry supplements help many other diseases and maladies, from diabetes to arthritis to blood clotting. It really is a worthwhile supplement to add to your daily nutrition.

      Acai can also be a great weight loss aid. The berry’s natural concoction of essential fatty acids, fiber, phytosterols and amino acids work together to help your body burn fat more efficiently, process food more quickly and shed the unwanted pounds that you’d like to lose.

      The fatty acids and amino acids aid in both muscle development and proper digestion, both of which are essential to fat loss. The fiber helps your body to move food out of your system quicker and also to help you feel full, as do fatty acids. Phytosterols help fortify your digestive tract, moving waste materials out and absorbing nutrients more efficiently.

      Acai has great anti-aging benefits, will cleanse and detoxify you, and has destroyed cancer cells in recent studies. You really can’t go wrong by adding an acai supplement to your daily vitamin regimen. So far it’s working for me by helping my digestion, curbing my appetite, and by giving me more energy each day… I don’t even get sleepy around 3pm anymore.

      Remember, just stick with a regular 100% acai supplement in capsule form like Extreme Acai, you can try the free trial at the source link below.

  30. QUESTION:
    Is there a weight loss supplement that actually works better with diet and exercise than with them alone?

    • ANSWER:
      Don’t quite understand your question..do you mean which diet pill works better with diet and exercise? Then it would be all diet pills .

      or did you mean which diet pill works better than dieting end exercise alone?
      If this is what you meant then you can try alli. According to their website it states “Alli makes it possible to lose 50% MORE weight than dieting alone”

      The only thing though is that you have to stay on a low fat diet otherwise it does have some unpleasant side effects like oily leakage and having to run to the bathroom. But if you stay to 15 grams of fat or less per meal and don’t snack on greasy or fatty foods you can avoid the side effects. I believe it’s also has special savings now until the end of September.

  31. QUESTION:
    Recommend any diet supplements that work?
    I have started a new healthy diet and would like to supplement the diet and exercise program with a pill that will help my weight loss. I only want something that is safe. Any recommendations?

    • ANSWER:
      4.3.2.1 Diet and Detox! Awesome!

  32. QUESTION:
    Looking for supplements/diet pills/vitamins to aid in fat/weight loss!?
    What are some good supplements/pills to help you lose body fat?? I’m not looking for some magic diet pill, because I really don’t think they exist. So basiclaly I am looking for something that will help me as I diet and exercise. I was interested in the whole acai berry thing, but its kind of a scam if you read the fine print, and I certainly don’t have to spend on pills a month when I don’t know that they are really even going to work!! Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Skip the supplements and fads. Do it the life-lasting way – increased exercise and increase your intake of filtered water.

      Brisk walking for 5 hours a week doesn’t cost anything. Over the course of a month it will make a difference, and it is something you can do anywhere and do all your life.

      Watch the medications if you take any. Many prescription medications, especially antidepressants and similar, can cause weight gain.

  33. QUESTION:
    What weight loss supplement or powder can help me trim my belly a little?
    I like my body but some fat has gone to my belly, nothing severe. I want to control it or do what I can without losing everything else, or losing to much weight. I believe in diet and exercise but I am pretty sure they have supplements specialized for belly fat. I need something I can get at gnc, cvs, or walmart. Also, does green T mega tea work? I think its in pill form.

    • ANSWER:
      No diet pill or magic powder gets rid of belly fat. Nor do any of the “spot trainers” or electric stimulators they peddle.
      The only way to get rid of belly fat is to lose the excess weight all over the body.
      We don’t get to decide where we lose excess body fat.
      We can work a specific muscle to make it larger but that doesn’t apply to weight loss.
      Unfortunately the dreaded belly fat is the last we seem to lose.

      Just because somebody claims their product does something doesn’t make it true. All of these products except Alli have to be sold as food supplements, not a drug since they cannot provide acceptable scientific evidence to support their outrageous claims. Alli is the only FDA approved over the counter weight loss product.

  34. QUESTION:
    Weight Loss Supplements?
    I’m 5’8 150 male and need to lose 15 pounds by the end of august. Could you tell me some weight loss supplements that work that I could buy at a CVS or a Rite Aid. I was thinking about hydroxycut or xenadrine… The most important thing about the supplement is that I don’t want to lose muscle while I’m on it. I’ve been trying to lose weight and no matter what I do I cant lose it I have tried low carb diets and I out the weight back on a day after I finish the diet!

    • ANSWER:
      Losing weight is a slow, gradual process and requires a combination of healthy eating, balanced nutrition and exercise. Herbal and homeopathic remedies can offer an effective natural solution to obesity and weight-gain.

      There are many herbal and homeopathic remedies can help you reach your goal weight in a healthy and effective manner. Herbs such as Garcinia cambogia, Taraxacum officinalis, Glycorrhiza glabra, and Capsicum minimum are especially known for boosting metabolism functioning and stimulating the digestive system, while helping to curb food cravings.

      In addition, the sea vegetable Fucus vesiculosis contains a concentrated source of minerals including iodine, which assists in the production of thyroid hormones necessary for maintaining healthy metabolism in all cells of the body.

      Homeopathic remedies such as Kalium Phosphate, Calcium Phosphate and Calcium Fluoride also help to improve metabolism while assisting in the breakdown of dietary fat. When used regularly, these natural ingredients can help to assist your body in weight loss while also helping rid your body of harmful toxins. The result is a slimmer, more energetic and healthier you!

      Together they can,
      •Support healthy slimming efforts along with a balanced lifestyle
      •Maintain efficient metabolism in the body
      •Support healthy weight goals without the use of artificial stimulants or ephedra
      •Support the digestive system by maintaining the natural breakdown of fats
      •Support healthy energy levels through nutrient absorption
      •Support loss of excess fat while maintaining normal growth and development
      •Support balanced blood sugar and fewer sugar cravings
      •Support a healthy glowing skin
      •Maintain overall systemic health in teenagers

      Hope this helps. It generally does.

  35. QUESTION:
    Legitimate weight loss supplements?
    Ok, so diet pills are a huuuge thing right now. I am trying to lose some weight. I am working out every day and eating well. But I was wondering if there are any weight loss supplements that actually work (and also, aren’t absolutely horrible for you)?

    • ANSWER:
      Wow two doctors :D spamming products.

      If you are working out and eating well you are already on the right track. Save your money and instead buy a great new dress a few sizes too small for you to give you an incentive. Fast weight loss usually ends up being short term and you gain it back plus some because of metabolism damage via muscle loss.

      To summarize supplements suck!

  36. QUESTION:
    what is a good weight loss supplement? Im already doing a lot of cardio & changing my diet around..?
    Ive started a heavy workout plan that includes several whole work days devoted to cardio (stationary bike, running) and ive changed my eating habits too. I just need to accelerate it with a supplement

    • ANSWER:
      Why do you want to accelerate it? Everything that accelerates eventually decelerates. Unless you want to keep taking this accelerant the rest of your life, the lifestyle changes you’ve made (which are excellent ones–good for you!) should be sufficient to get you in top shape.

    How fast and safe can I lose weight?
    I am a 39 years old guy. I think I am a 40LB to 50LB overweight. I have tried a couple types of diets and weight loss supplements. No one was work for me. So I am looking something new what’s really working.

    • ANSWER:
      so you’ve tried diets and weight loss supplements and they dont work. So here’s what i will tell you for free that will ACTUALLY WORK and will cost you nothing but time. you got it, exercise and changing your eating habit.

      -i suggest a 2 mile walk every day.
      -whenever your on the phone instead of sitting, get up and walk around.
      -eat healthy cuz you only have one life to live. the unhealthy food isnt worth the price you have to pay with your health
      -i know its hard to get motivated, but think about your friends and family, your love ones. ask them for support.
      -slowly change your diet, dont get all pumped up and change everything right away. do it step by step.

      dont lose hope

  38. QUESTION:
    Any weight loss tips?
    I have a jiggly belly and thighs and I want to lose all of it. I’m 15, 5ft 9in, and I weigh 140/150lbs. I do gymanstics for four hours a week to try to tone up, but its not working. Are there any good weight loss diets, supplements, and/or exercises?

    • ANSWER:
      When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
      If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
      will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
      underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
      exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
      diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
      after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
      your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
      you don’t eat wheat then you don’t eat all those sticky, fatty goey
      cakes, you don’t eat junk food, and you don’t eat biscuits. But your
      diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
      calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
      start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
      most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
      lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
      disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
      your problem areas for men and women. It’s not necessarily to become a
      bodybuilder or even join a gym – a couple of dumbbells will help you
      to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

  39. QUESTION:
    Weight Loss Surgery: Is it for me?
    I am inquiring about a weight loss surgery as a last resort. I have literally tried every stupid diet, stupid weight loss supplements and shakes, proper dieting and excercising, but that’s very hard for me to keep up on. There seems to be nothing really working out for me.

    I am not an incredbily obese woman. I was just got weighed today at my gynecology appointment, and to my disappointment I found out I weigh 181 pounds and I am 5 feet 7 inches. I just checked out a BMI calculator and it told me my index is 28.3. According to the key, I am overweight but I’m not taking too much stock in that… That’s just what it’s telling me.

    I really don’t look like I weigh that much, but apparently I do and it’s such a fucking bummer to me. I don’t know what else to do, and I just want some help. It’s hard changing your diet when no one else in your household really gives a damn about planning meals and preparing food the healthy way. I can’t go out and buy separate groceries when I have so much to pay for myself, so I just what my mom makes because it’s more convenient for me. I find excercising very off-putting but I try to do it, apart from my job; I’m a housekeeper and I’m always on the move but there’s not much exertion coming out of that. It helps, I’m sure… but more could be done, and without a friend (which I sort of have none of in this city anymore) it’s tough to keep going when I find things getting difficult.

    I don’t feel that I’m at risk for any diseases that would require me to get a weight loss surgery, but I feel like I’m at my wits end.

    I’m asking anyone with knowledge on this matter, either from personal experience or from expert (ish) knowledge. I just need some guidance. I’m 21 years old, but I don’t really think age is a huge factor in play on this subject. Just don’t know what to doooo…

    Shall I go to my doctor and just talk to him about it, maybe see what he suggests I do?

    • ANSWER:
      because you are building muscle, so no pills cause those are short term and long term they make you gain double the weight, my aunt did that and she recently (after 20 years) lost the 130 pounds she had on for the pills, and it was hard. Drink water, lots of it (will clean your organism) drink green tea (no sugar, its ok tasting not bad at all) walk rather than run (keeping your heart rate below 140 makes you burn fat and lose weigh, if you ran you will work your cardio.

  44. QUESTION:
    Are these vitamins/supplements okay to add to my daily diet for heart health/weight loss?
    I am a 22 year old male and have been on a statin for about a year for high cholesterol (hereditary). I have always had a tough time losing weight since I can’t work out for long periods of time (heat condition), but I would like to try and lower my calorie intake and hope that helps. I am quite muscular and athletic, but I have always had belly/chest fat that I want gone. In addition to lowering my calorie intake, I was thinking of adding a few vitamins and supplements that would seem to help my health.

    Omega 3: about 1200mg – 1800mg per day
    Calcium: 1000mg per day
    Vitamin B12: 500mcg – 1,000mcg per day
    Fiber: about 35g per day
    Vitamin D (I don’t get much sun): 1,000IU per day
    In addition, I have a multivitamin that I would be taking daily.

    I am trying to help my heart by losing weight and lowering cholesterol. I also like the alternative health benefits of the things I listed. I would like to know if the daily dosages that I listed were reasonable, and if there is anything else I should add to the list (or take away). Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      That all looks fine, although everything is at the upper end of what is acceptable. I wouldn’t take any more of those than you’ve specified. The only one that can really be toxic is the Vitamin D. The symptoms of vitamin D toxicity are being thirsty, going to the toilet a lot, being nervous, being itchy, and symptoms of having high blood calcium levels – bony pain, abdominal pain, renal stones, low mood. You could quite reasonably halve or quarter that level of vitamin D and still be healthy, in fact, 200-300IU would be better than 1000IU.

      The other thing to say, is that you could think about taking this regimen just for 1-2 weeks, then if you adjust your diet so that it is healthy and balance, you should get all the vitamins you need from your diet. You don’t really need to take any supplements if you eat well. The way vitamins are in food is actually a better way for them to be absorbed.

      One more thing to add, is that if you are very overweight (BMI 35+) you might think about whether you would consider having surgery to reduce the size of your stomach or to reduce absorption. Although there are some side effects and risks of such surgery, the risks are actually less than the risks of being very obese. You could look on the internet under ‘bariatric surgery’ or ask your doctor about this as a possibility.

  45. QUESTION:
    diet pills-weight loss (10 points)?
    **i know that exercising and eating healthy is the best way to lose weight but..

    does anyone know of any good diet pills that work effectively/quickly (if you do, how long did you take them, how much did you lose etc..) please name them if you do!! and is there any age restriction to purchasing diet pills/supplements at stores?

    10 points. thank you so much!

    thanks so much!

    • ANSWER:
      I have been through it all and know what’s it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can’t be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I’ve worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

      Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

      First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can’t eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising…

      This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it’s good for the heart.

      However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It’s so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I’ve found a great addition to help any one out, it’s a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don’t get all crazy on me and say diet pills don’t work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn’t meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It’s an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace.com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it’s the best pill I’ve tried and I’ve tried cupboards full. Now this doesn’t mean you have to follow my foot steps but I’ve successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

      Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

  46. QUESTION:
    Has anyone out there actually used any weight loss supplements from GNC that have worked?
    I realize that diet and exercise are essential; I am wondering if anyone has a success story with an accompanying supplement, the kind offered through outlets such a GNC that don’t have weird side effects.

    • ANSWER:
      The “weird side effects” part will exclude the supplement I took. GNC offered Xenadrine with ephedra some years back (before it was banned). The GNC store rep pretty much told me that it has no side effects and it is completely safe. He even showed me the testimonials from such celebs as Sylvester Stallone and said it was legitimate. (I should have known then and there that if Sly’s stamp of quality is on a product, something must be wrong)

      While I did lose weight because it completely suppressed my appetite (to the point where in the first couple days I barely ate anything), but my heart beat almost twice as fast at rest and when I tried to exercise I was winded within 10 minutes. I wasn’t really extremely overweight, just maybe 5-10 pounds over my normal weight. Plus I did exercise before I took the ephedra. Xenadrine later went on to claim that the reports of deaths from their supplement were erroneous because the people who had been taking ephedra were so overweight and out of shape that they would have had heart attacks anyway. I think that’s complete nonsense. I could run several miles before taking that drug and I wasn’t more that a few pounds over my normal weight. After taking it I could barely run half a mile before getting totally winded and flushed. The drug is dangerous, period.

      The one thing I hope you can take away from this anecdote is that you should never take a supplement’s testimonials at face value. For one, they have a conflict of interest: they must claim their product is both safe and effective or else they run out of business. Secondly, GNC and its store reps are often as much to blame as the companies, because they may gloss over evidence that shows that the supplement is not safe in order to make a sale. I have often wondered how GNC can claim it is about health and well-being when practically half of their products have no scientific evidence behind them. Frankly, a lot of the stuff GNC offers is borderline “speed” or anabolic steroids- albeit made in such a way to appear it is “natural” or “herbal”. Cyanide is also natural.

      Xenadrine now has a supplement that no longer contains ephedra (aka ma juang). But it still contains a lot of stimulants. Anna Nicole Smith lost a ton of weight because they basically drugged her up with stimulants (I mean seriously, you think she actually worked out to get that way?).

      Caffeine is a common ingredient in weight loss and energy supplements. Caffeine suppresses your appetite while also increasing your metabolism. I guess it’s good, to a point. But the levels of caffeine in some of these supplements makes them equivalent to 5 or more cups of coffee. Try drinking that amount of coffee and see what results you get. You will get all jittery, nervous, and easily peeved.

      These supplements will work initially since they suppress appetite. But you don’t really want to take them in the long run. They won’t change your lifestyle. If anything, they will make you more dependent on them. Once you go off the supplements, your metabolism will be so out of whack that you’ll start to pack on the pounds again. Weight bearing exercise to build muscle mass and aerobic exercise, along with a reduction in caloric intake, are the only effective, long-term ways to lose weight. Supplements aren’t for the long term, even if they do work initially.

      There really are no magic pills out there to help lose weight. Hydroxycut will speed up metabolism, and help suppress your hunger.

      I really don’t recommend these products, but I wanted to answer your Question :)

      Good Luck

  49. QUESTION:
    Any natural metabolism/weight loss supplements?
    I am very obese, female, 5’6. I am on a lifestyle change, working out 5 times a week, cutting calories, cutting all bad things out of my diet. I take a vitamin. I was wondering if green tea supplements/metabolism boosters, etc, would be efficient and good to add to this new lifestyle. Any suggestions?
    I am 20.

    • ANSWER:
      Balanced diet and exercise. Period. i just know if you are taking in more calories every day than you are burning running on the treadmill, you have to make some changes. Drop your caloric intake or increase the amount of exercise, or better yet – do both. Little things that can help – replace your computer chair with an excerise ball, take the stairs instead of the elevator, don’t skip meals (and make them healthy meals), fidget (belive it or not tapping your foot or clenching your butt while you sit burns more calories than just sitting still). Good luck

  50. QUESTION:
    What is the best weight loss supplement for 20 year old?
    I am 20 years old, I weigh 180 lb’s and I work out almost everyday. I keep working out and i see no results in losing my belly flab. I have been working out for over 3 months now and I am getting fed up with not losing weight in the belly area. I need a diet pill that will give me that extra boost so i can finally see results. Is there any certain pill that will help me accomplish this goal?

    • ANSWER:
      I have been through it all and know what’s it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can’t be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I’ve worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

      Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

      First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can’t eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising…

      This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it’s good for the heart.

      However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It’s so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I’ve found a great addition to help any one out, it’s a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don’t get all crazy on me and say diet pills don’t work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn’t meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It’s an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace dot com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it’s the best pill I’ve tried and I’ve tried cupboards full. Now this doesn’t mean you have to follow my foot steps but I’ve successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

      Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.


Diet Weight Loss Supplements For Women

If you are overweight then you probably tried a lot of methods to lose weight already. Diets and workouts, various pills…you even considered starving yourself but you gave up that idea soon. All the methods of losing weight that I mentioned earlier are more or less effective, depending on the ambition of the person who tries them. However, sometimes it doesn’t even depend on you to lose weight. There are a lot of pills that promise a nicer body but in fact they are just a waste of money and they can also endanger your health. If you want to lose weight in the safest way possible, try the hCG Diet Drops.
These hCG Diet Drops promise an entirely pain free weight loss. You don’t have to worry about not eating or working out all day. If you trust these drops and you give them a try, you will see why there are so many people who use them. They are very popular because they helped a lot of men and women who thought that they will never have a normal bodyweight. Now they know that using the hCG Diet Drops is worth the money and the time as well.
The hCG Diet Drops contain hormones, that’s how they help your body to lose fat. The hCG weight loss doesn’t harm your body at all, these human hormones are safe to use. Many other pills or drops that you can find in shops or on the internet can be harmful because they contain animal hormones. You should also take care when you buy something that it is made in the USA. Many hormone tablets are made in other countries where the health department isn’t as careful as in the USA. The hCG Diet Drops are made in the USA and you can be sure that what you buy is safe and of very good quality.
For more information on the hCG Diet Drops visit their website and see all the relevant info they posted there. That’s the best place to understand how hCG weight loss really works, how are the drops made and what do they contain. You can also order them from there in a very simple way, or contact the company if you have any questions. There are more drops to choose from. Some of them are especially made for couples, and they have to be taken at the recommended dosages. For women and for men there are separate hCG weight loss drops.
The website has more than just information about the hCG Diet Drops. They have recipes for instance, that are made to help people lose weight while using the hCG Diet Drops. As you see you won’t have to give up your favorite meals: you can still eat something good and keep your body healthy in the same time.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What’s a good diet supplement for weight loss in older women?

    • ANSWER:
      My personal opinion is that you could take Acai Berry, is being used to help people lose weight because it is able to control the appetite of its users and it also increases metabolism. When metabolism rates increase, the body is able to burn foods faster and it will also burn the fat that is already stored in the body. The body will also receive more energy with increased metabolism, allowing individuals that exercise with a more rewarding workout.
      The benefit that individuals receive when they use acai berry products is the influx of antioxidants. When a person has a diet that is high in antioxidants, they may notice that their body is better equipped to handle certain disease and sicknesses. The antioxidants help to repair cells that are damaged by the oxidation process that arises in the body. In addition, the body’s immune system is strengthened by the antioxidants.

  2. QUESTION:
    What diet pill/weight loss pill/supplement/vitamin for women should I take to kick start?
    I am 21 and a female. I’m 5’4 and 139 pounds. I exercise doing 3-4 days a week cardio intervals, weight training, resistance training, stretching, and circuits. I eat very healthfully, I’ve done the eat enough calories, eat less calories, eat more calories. I’ve done the 6 small meals, I’ve done the 3 meals and 2 snacks, I’ve done every food diet possible that doesn’t involve meat(besides fish once in awhile) because I am a vegetarian. No matter what I try I cannot LOSE weight. I understand muscle weighs more than fat and to burn fat you build muscle and gain weight first, but I am not muscular nor fat so that doesn’t apply to me, and I’ve kept this steady weight over the last 2 or so years. Except last year when there was a death in the family and I dropped weight like crazy from stress and getting on a medication to deal. But, I’ve been off the meds for awhile and living a healthy lifestyle and I can’t lose it(I’m looking to be miniminally 115-120, less if possible). My BMI says I’m normal, but I don’t feel good with myself. I get that the BMI doesn’t say everything about a body, but to look at me I have a thin look with curves if that makes sense. I’m 34c/27/36. Anyways, what I’m getting at is does anyone know any supplements/pills/etc that can help me kickstart a weight loss, I’m not going to replace my lifestyle with it, I just need a booster. Please give me some suggestions, I’d greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      There aren’t any and you don’t weigh enough to qualify for the only one with FDA approval.
      Nothing for it but sensible eating and exercise.

      If you eat 3,500 calories more than your body needs, you will put on about 1 pound. If you use up 3,500 calories more than you eat, you will lose about 1 pound in weight.

    • ANSWER:
      What you need to do is ditch this Anne Collins thing and go to a weight loss spa. I went to Fitness Ridge Weight Loss Spa in St. George, UT and lost 34 pounds in 4 weeks. Great hiking and terrific staff.

      Stop wasting your time with this Anne Collins stuff.

  4. QUESTION:
    Weight loss supplement “Acai” endorsed by Oprah?
    I have been seeing and hearing about this supplement for weight loss called Acai. Apparently you mix it with your water/juice and you start loosing the pounds. (44 in 3 months was her example) I have done fad diets, used weight loss supplements, had meals delivered to my door and ordered weight loss programs from infomercials.These didn’t work for long. NOTHING has worked better than the traditional diet and exercise and have recently lost 35 pounds already. So it seems that Oprah is endorsing this product called “Acai”. You would think since Oprah is one of the most powerful women in America that she wouldn’t put her name on something that wouldn’t work, right? I mean, she doesn’t need any more money! So you think it really works then??? I need to get rid of this dang little bit of tummy fat, and that’s where it works, on your love handles. Hmmmm……

    • ANSWER:
      What can I say, Oprah is right this time. Acai really is an awesome food supplement that everyone should be using.

      You have made a good choice by looking into acai. Especially if you tend to look towards building a healthy future rather than immediate gains. I mean, you will still benefit from acai’s fat burning effects immediately, but acai should be taken more for its long term antioxidant properties than for its fat loss potential.

      I recommend you get a free trial of Extreme Acai from the source link below. This is the product I use, and honestly I feel better every day. If you don’t like it, just don’t reorder it… but you’ll like it.

      Now let me tell you why I recommend Extreme Acai over all other acai supplements…

      Firstly, Extreme Acai is a 100% acai capsule (pill) type supplement. Capsules are superior to juices, cleansers, and detoxifiers. Juices are diluted and are filled with sugar, cleansers and detox supplements tend to promote abdominal discomfort, and they are all way overpriced. Most likely you will only find sugar filled acai juice supplements at your local GNC.

      Two weekends ago I attempted to find a good acai supplement at GNC, Vitamin World, Hannafords, and Shaws, but I was unable to find something that was cheap, high quality, and not filled with sugar and other fillers. I am going to keep getting Extreme Acai for now.

      Secondly, Extreme Acai ranks in the top 3, usually at #1, of all acai supplements in most acai product polls that I’ve found online.

      How good is acai for your health?

      Acai berries have far more antioxidants than any other fruit. Even more than blueberries! Besides that, the nutrients in acai berry supplements help many other diseases and maladies, from diabetes to arthritis to blood clotting. It really is a worthwhile supplement to add to your daily nutrition.

      Acai can also be a great weight loss aid. The berry’s natural concoction of essential fatty acids, fiber, phytosterols and amino acids work together to help your body burn fat more efficiently, process food more quickly and shed the unwanted pounds that you’d like to lose.

      The fatty acids and amino acids aid in both muscle development and proper digestion, both of which are essential to fat loss. The fiber helps your body to move food out of your system quicker and also to help you feel full, as do fatty acids. Phytosterols help fortify your digestive tract, moving waste materials out and absorbing nutrients more efficiently.

      Acai has great anti-aging benefits, will cleanse and detoxify you, and has destroyed cancer cells in recent studies. You really can’t go wrong by adding an acai supplement to your daily vitamin regimen. So far it’s working for me by helping my digestion, curbing my appetite, and by giving me more energy each day… I don’t even get sleepy around 3pm anymore.

      Remember, just stick with a regular 100% acai supplement in capsule form like Extreme Acai, you can try the free trial at the source link below.

  5. QUESTION:
    Weight Loss Surgery: Is it for me?
    I am inquiring about a weight loss surgery as a last resort. I have literally tried every stupid diet, stupid weight loss supplements and shakes, proper dieting and excercising, but that’s very hard for me to keep up on. There seems to be nothing really working out for me.

    I am not an incredbily obese woman. I was just got weighed today at my gynecology appointment, and to my disappointment I found out I weigh 181 pounds and I am 5 feet 7 inches. I just checked out a BMI calculator and it told me my index is 28.3. According to the key, I am overweight but I’m not taking too much stock in that… That’s just what it’s telling me.

    I really don’t look like I weigh that much, but apparently I do and it’s such a fucking bummer to me. I don’t know what else to do, and I just want some help. It’s hard changing your diet when no one else in your household really gives a damn about planning meals and preparing food the healthy way. I can’t go out and buy separate groceries when I have so much to pay for myself, so I just what my mom makes because it’s more convenient for me. I find excercising very off-putting but I try to do it, apart from my job; I’m a housekeeper and I’m always on the move but there’s not much exertion coming out of that. It helps, I’m sure… but more could be done, and without a friend (which I sort of have none of in this city anymore) it’s tough to keep going when I find things getting difficult.

    I don’t feel that I’m at risk for any diseases that would require me to get a weight loss surgery, but I feel like I’m at my wits end.

    I’m asking anyone with knowledge on this matter, either from personal experience or from expert (ish) knowledge. I just need some guidance. I’m 21 years old, but I don’t really think age is a huge factor in play on this subject. Just don’t know what to doooo…

    Shall I go to my doctor and just talk to him about it, maybe see what he suggests I do?

    • ANSWER:

  6. QUESTION:
    Is it okay for women to consume men’s diet supplements?
    I’m on a diet. I recently bought a weight loss cereal which is actually for men. One of the ingredients is L-carnatine. I ate this cereal a couple of times already, but now I worry wether this product might have a bad effect on my body, considering the male and female body have different hormones and that the product IS for men only(d’OH). Or is it?
    would it cause hormone disorders and extra acne?

    • ANSWER:
      L-cartinine is an amino acid, toted as a weight loss supplement, it is totally safe for women. You consume L-cartinine every time you eat protein. Most supplement’s made for men are totally safe for women. I would not take a libido booster made for men though.

  7. QUESTION:
    Weight Loss Supplement?
    I’m looking for a weight loss supplement that’s good for young women. I don’t want something that makes you drop ten pounds a week and become sick. I’m looking for something that can help me loose weight along with diet and exercise, something that can speed up my metabolism. My biggest problem with dieting is I don’t gain weight, but I don’t loose any either. So I’m looking for something to help me loose instead of just maintain the same weight.

    • ANSWER:

  8. QUESTION:
    Does the diet industry only targets women or men or both?
    I know this is not my imagination but why do I mostly see women doing ads and commercials for diet pills, weight loss programs, and light, low-fat products?

    Every time I see a tv commercial about diets, diet supplements, lap bands, and plastic surgery, I hardly see any men doing any of these types of ads and commercials. It looks like we women were designed to not have an appetite. Even in magazines and on tv I see women in ads that equal hunger and food with “guilt” or “sin.”

    So does the diet industry only targets men or women? Or both? If so why?
    Or is it because we women were design to attract the opposite sex?
    Because as summer approaches, we women are supposed to wear bikinis and so bikinis require a thin body, because wearing skimpy clothing and bikinis require a thin body and that we have to dress like that to attract guys? I know they are not gonna be attracted to a starving Ethiopian and neither to a morbidly obese woman, but why does this happen?

    • ANSWER:
      Women want to look thin to attract men, because men are visual creatures.

      Men are not targeted nearly as much for weight loss because women are not too particular about how nice a guy’s body looks.

      Ergo, they should be working on a pill to make guys into gentlemen who are fun and respectful.

  9. QUESTION:
    Is ther a good weight loss supplement for a 23 yr old woman?
    I am 142 pounds currently and 5’4″ tall. I am looking to be somewhere around 117 lbs. ideally. I have begun a diet and exercise program structured with both cardio and toning 5 days a week. I am just wondering if there is a safe weight loss pill/supplement to take that would kick start my stubborn weight loss. I have recently come off the pill, and am looking to regain the physique I had before I started taking it.

    • ANSWER:
      if there was a weight loss pill that works there would be no obese people.
      you just have to eat healthy, consume enough calories to not deprive your body and exercise (cardio is the only fat burning exercise).

  10. QUESTION:
    who is the media to decide what traits of men and women are desirable, and which are not?
    There are those that try to kill themselves for the sake of looking a certain way, expensive surgeries, fad weight loss programs, and disorders such as bulimia and anorexia nervosia are at an all time high. Can the media be blamed for the complexes and hazards associated with its ideals of beauty or can it be chalked up to ignorant masses misinterpreting these generic images? Some might argue that “the people on fad diets just want to get healthier.” But I would disagree, as people who want healthiness use healthy habits, such as NOT using fad diets and alleged miracle weight loss supplements; the target of these fad diets are those with low self-esteem who think it will make them beautiful, not necessarily healthy. For example, a product called “Lipozene” on the market is allegedly supposed to make you lose weight in under a few weeks, but they also state that 78% of the weight lost was pure body fat. What is the other twelve%? water perhaps? But its clearly not something worth risking your health is it? At the end of every fad weight loss commercial, they list the risk of using the product in tiny letters at the bottom of the screen, some of which include the necessity of medical attention and even death.
    Is beauty such a thing worth dying for?

    • ANSWER:
      Nice little rant, but it seems rather presumptuous. Who are YOU to act indignant on behalf of the entire population?

      To some people, it is completely worth it to die early, if that is the price to pay for beauty.

      I am probably going to die early, not because of an appearance obsession, but because I like burgers, bacon, cheese, and french fries. Not everyone understands this decision. Likewise, I don’t understand other people being willing to die for beauty, and yet I find a way to acknowledge, even respect their decision.

      Live and let die, as the case may be. Let everyone find their own happiness, even if you don’t admire their choices.

  11. QUESTION:
    Can a 19 year old take One a day women’s: Active metabolism? Will it aid in weight loss?
    Hello. I am a nineteen year old female and I don’t really eat like I should, and I never really exercise. Well, I do eat WELL, like foods that are good for me, but I don’t eat enough. I just can;t force myself to eat more than 1000 calories of fruit and whatnot a day. But as far as exercise goes, I am guilty there, I hate doing it and I don’t really have time. However, I am going to commit myself to doing about half an hour to an hour of jogging a day, but my diet will probably remain the same.

    I was wondering if, since I don’t exercise a lot, one a day womens (active metabolism) would help aid me in weight loss and diet regulation, even to some degree.

    I don’t know if it actually does help boost your metabolism even if you don’t exercise, but I need a supplement that WILL DO THAT. However, I thought that this one might be a good idea because since I don’t eat much, and it’s a multivitamin for women, it would give me the things that I don’t get from food as well.

    However, a metabolism booster is my main goal. So if you know something other than this that boosts the metabolism, then please tell me, and I will get a more simple multivitamin to go along.

    Admittedly, if they still prescribed amphetamines for fatigue and weight loss instead of just ADD I would definitely try for that. But I just have to go for the next best thing, so any help would be appreciated.
    Well like I said, I basically already have set a “calorie limit”

    But, I don’t care what anyone here thinks, I can not spend my whole week exercising. I have a baby to take care of twenty four seven, so I probably burn enough calories as it is not even trying. However, as far as REAL, official exercise, I WILL NOT do it for more than 30-60 minutes a day. And probably not even every day.

    • ANSWER:
      That is a supplement. Just like all the other tons of “fat loss, energy booster” products it is only a supplement. Exercise and proper diet is a must before you can even consider these types of pills to work with your body. You dont have to eat 1000 calories of fruits (id probably puke if i tried) just dont eat over a certain calorie number. To be honest, i ate barely any fruits and veggies, but i lost nearly 50 pounds so far. Thats because i set a calorie limit of no more than 2000 a day no matter what, and i exercised 5 times per week.

      So if you try these pills or any other for weight loss, set a calorie limit, and exercise. It wont work on its own.

  13. QUESTION:
    Serious weight loss question?
    First off, I do not want to hear “diet and exercise are the only ways….etc etc..” Im a biology major and Im not stupid, Im not asing for a miracle weight loss pill.

    I am currently trying to lose weight and as the first step I bought a Wii. (I dont live close to any gyms and get easily bored with the same workout dvd things over and over again and since its in the 90s and up in the summer here going outside and walking is not even an option. I got the My Fitness Coach thing for the Wii as well as Wii sports that came with it and have started those workouts doing anywhere from 30-60 minute workouts 5 days a week with rest days in between. I also have started eating soo much healthier than I used to (being just out of college). I eat a lot of fruits and veggies, oatmeal, cottage cheese, low fat snacks like reduced fat wheat thins, etc. I do not eat alot of protein (I hate cooking meat for myself) so I do plan on getting a protein shake mix or something to supplement that, as well as a fiber supplement, like benefiber. My main problem is I feel as if I have a slow metabolism and that I dont have enough energy, Im only 22, I should have tons of energy but due to stress from previous relationships, family problems and school problems Ive gotten to the point where I am constantly lazy and have no desire to do alot, and the fact that there is nothing to do around the house (another reason for getting the Wii).

    What is a good weight loss supplement, not something that is supposed to make you skinny just from taking it, I know those are all fakes, but just something that will actually boost energy and reduce my wanting to eat when Im bored. Is the Slimquick a good one for women? I really just need something to go along with all the healthy changes Ive made so I can keep it up and so I wont stop working out just because of no energy to do so. Thanks to anyone who has a serious answer!! Other answers will be flagged.

    • ANSWER:
      Try Transitions™ CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)

      Transitions CLA is caffeine free and contains natural ingredients that can help redistribute fat to fat burning muscle tissue to assist in promoting lean muscle mass and decreasing the amount of fat stored in your body.

      If your concern is to increase energy & boost up metabolism:

      I would recommend
      Isotonix® Advanced B-Complex

      http://www.marketamerica.com/lcbeauty/index.cfm?action=shopping.wpGoShopProducts&prodID=2241

      Primary Benefits*:

      •Helps decrease stress and improve mood
      •Helps maintain healthy levels of serotonin
      •Increases energy
      •Deficiencies in Folic Acid, vitamin B12, vitamin B6 or Biotin may result in feelings of fatigue
      •Involved in the metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates

      •Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid facilitate steps required for cell division
      •Vitamin B5 is involved in the Krebs cycle of energy production and is needed to make the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. B5 is also essential in producing, transporting, and releasing energy from fats
      •Vitamin B6 is essential for amino acid metabolism
      •Vitamins B1, B2, B3, and Biotin participate in different aspects of energy production
      •Promotes normal red blood cell formation
      •B-vitamins are essential for many key functions in the body

      Primary Benefits*:

      •Increases energy
      •Provides strong antioxidant protection

      •Promotes healthy blood sugar levels
      •Supports weight control
      •Promotes prostate health
      •Promotes normal regulation of enzymes and hormones

      I would only recommend Isotonix line of supplements when available because:

      1st, Isotonix is the only isotonic form of supplements in the market that provides superior absorption rate that pill form cannot beat. In order to form pills, filling, addictive needs to be added, these are waste to our body and increase digestion time.

      In additions, no matter if we drink, eat or take pills, everything need to be broken down into isotonic solution in our stomach first before our body can absorb. Stomach is very high acidic, thus most of the nutrients are destroyed in our stomach before reaching small intestine for absorption. So with pill form, you are looking for absorption rate of about 10 to 40% depending on our body’s digestion ability and the ingredients to form the pills. Please keep in mind that human’s digestion ability decease by age.

      With Isotonix line, since it’s in isotonic form by adding certain amount of water to one capful of powder (it tastes great too!), vitamin won’t stay in stomach and will go to intestine within 5 minutes so you are looking for absorption rate of 90% and higher, higher absorption rate even compare to IV injection.

      No filling or binding are added to the Isotonix line so you are guarantee to have best potency for the vitamin you take.

      Yes you can buy vitamin for less than 10 bucks, but if it doesn’t help to adjust the issues, you are wasting your money no matter how small amount. With Isotonix, it’s high absorption and high potency for the body, thus making every penny worth it.

  14. QUESTION:
    Can you use meal supplements on a LOW-CARB diet?
    At the moment i am using ‘body: shaping protein for women,’ a meal supplement IN-BETWEEN 1 or 2 of my meals each day. I never consume over 30g carbohydrates as I am trying to lose weight. The supplement is supposed to aid in weight loss. I exercise 20-30 mins each day.

    Do you think i should just stay on my low-carb diet (as it has been working!!) or use the supplement as well?

    Thank you:)

    • ANSWER:
      I have heard from hundreds of people that can’t lose while including the Atkins bars & shakes to their way of eating. They claim that “sugar alcohols don’t count” but I don’t think they allow for weight loss. They may be fine for maintenance though.

      If you find the supplement helps, then it shouldn’t be a problem but I’m betting if it contains sugar alcohols as most do, it may slow or stall weight loss.

      There is no reason to ever go off a low carb way of eating, you slowly re introduce carbs to your way of eating & as long as you don’t exceed 9grams of carbs an hour (144 carbs a day) you won’t trigger insulin (the fat storage hormone) no matter the calories. Most of us do low carb most of the time & if we cheat & slip back into low carb the next day. I still cheat with sugar occasionally. It’s just not a regular part of my life (as it was preAtkins, 6 years ago, when I felt it controlled me & I had no control)

      The rungs to reintroduction of carbs in 5 gram units – all available to very active people in as little as 11 weeks. Make sure you do them in order & you can skip a rung if you do not intend to include it in your permanent way of eating, such as the alcohol rung.:
      * (minimum week 3 – maximum 25grams day) Acceptable vegetables, larger quantities
      * (minimum week 4 – maximum 30grams day) Add 5grams Fresh cheese
      * (minimum week 5 – maximum 35grams day) Add 5grams Nuts and seeds
      * (minimum week 6 – maximum 40grams day) Add 5grams Berries
      * (minimum week 7 – maximum 45grams day) Alcohol can be added if desired
      * (minimum week 8 – maximum 50grams day) Add 5grams Legumes
      * (minimum week 9 – maximum 55grams day) Add 5grams Other fruits
      * (minimum week10 – maximum 60grams day) Add 5grams Starchy vegetables
      * (minimum week11 – maximum 65grams day) Add 5grams Whole grains
      If you are continuing to lose or maintain (whichever is goal) in week 12 & beyond, you continue to add 5grams a day per week til you reach your personal carb level.

      Every day you should be eating these 2 items. If you need additional fat or calories, you can add a tablespoon of virgin coconut oil to the ground flax seed cereal. I highly recommend virgin coconut oil for people needing quick energy – coconut oil is the only fat that is converted to quick energy like a carb.

      Half an avocado mashed with 2 ounces of mayo seasoned with cayenne & eaten with pork rinds or celery.

      Ground flax seed (4 Tbsp) 1/4 cup water, artificial sweetener, mix in a raw egg – let sit 10 min. to absorb liquid, put some cream cheese in the middle & nuke 2 min for daily fiber needs.

      You can lose more body fat eating protein & fat (don’t eat protein alone) than not eating AT ALL. To lose weight fast, eat all you want, but nothing but meat, eggs, healthy oils, mayo, butter & half an avocado a day (for added potassium). Keep the calories high & the fat percentage high, at least 65% of calories. Green vegetables & some cheese will continue weight loss but at a slower pace.

      The body won’t release fat stores if you lower calories below what it needs. It will slow metabolism to compensate & store every spare ounce as fat. If you continue lowering calories, it will continue lowering the set point, til it can survive off nothing & store fat on anything. The body will only release it’s fat stores if it knows there is plenty of nutritious food.

      Eating carbs while trying to lose body fat is terribly inefficient. When in glycolysis (burning glucose as fuel) you have to lower your calories (which slows your metabolism) & exercise heavily to deplete your glycogen stores before burning body fat.

      The core of Atkins program is converting the body from glycolysis (burning glucose as fuel) to ketosis (burning fat as fuel). Dietary fat levels need to be at >65% of total calories, if not, the body will still remain in glycolysis by converting 58% of excess protein into glucose (via gluconeogenesis).

      Carbohydrates (sugar, flour, bread, cereal, pasta, potatoes, rice, beans) trigger insulin (the ONLY fat storage hormone). Protein triggers the fat burning hormone glucagon.

      High insulin levels promote inflammation, weight gain, hunger & unbalance other hormones. Controlling insulin levels will balance out other hormones & allow human growth hormone (HGH) to be produced naturally so lean muscle will be gained even without exercise.

      As long as you have <9grams carbs per hour, you will maintain insulin control & shouldn't gain weight, no matter the calories because insulin, the fat storage hormone is not activated. Many people gain weight on high carb, do low carb to lose weight & then are shocked when they return to high carb & gain weight. Many people can return to moderate carb levels but very few can really eat all they want of sugar & maintain weight or health.

      I am adamantly opposed to low calorie dieting because most people lose a good portion of lean tissue (including vital organs like the heart) along with fat stores. There is no nutrition in fat stores, only energy.

  15. QUESTION:
    (diet pills) boost to kick-off my weight loss?suggestions?
    i have alot of weight to loose and i want to start a diet/exercise program…i want to know if anyone has any recomendations for supplements that work for them. my boyfriend lost 22 pounds with diet excercise and fat burning pills, he takes them before every meal and they help his muscles retain alot of water so he’s less sore after he lifts, their really expensive, he’s a heavy weight lifter, but i just want to find something thats right for me before i just buy some random pills. i’m willing to shell out the cash for them, i just want to get my money’s worth!-i know alot of responses are just going to say don’t use them, but i’ve already made the decision i’m going to use them additionally to working out and eating right to maximize my results. i don’t want pills that are probably going to be taken off the market and going to make my have a massive heart attack. and i’m definitely not taking Alli! my friend had alot of weight to loose and asked her doctor about taking Alli, he told her as long as you have an extra pair of pants and underwear with you at ALL times, he said you’ll loose weight with it but alot of women have reported sh*ting on themselves!! no thank you!! he prescribed weight loss pills to her, i don’t have insurance though :/

    • ANSWER:
      I have been through it all and know what’s it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can’t be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I’ve worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

      Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

      First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can’t eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising…

      This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it’s good for the heart.

      However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It’s so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I’ve found a great addition to help any one out, it’s a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don’t get all crazy on me and say diet pills don’t work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn’t meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It’s an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace.com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it’s the best pill I’ve tried and I’ve tried cupboards full. Now this doesn’t mean you have to follow my foot steps but I’ve successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

      Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

  16. QUESTION:
    ANY diet supplements you recommend for me?
    I am overweight. I just have a HUGE belly that I CANNOT rid of, because I barely have hips and don’t have BUTT for a woman. I am active person. I tried to go the gym everyday. I would say I go at least 3-4 times every week. I run, weight light, but I don’t do much for my stomach. I believe the stomach is the hardest part to workout. What can I do besides starving myself? Starving myself never works, because I love food and always end up eating TONS and TONS of food. ANY diet supplements you recommend for me? I am 5’1 and 120 lbs.

    Maybe I need diet pills to enhance my weight loss goal, so I think I should start taking diet supplements.

  17. QUESTION:
    A weight loss for women?
    My best guy friend is taking a male supplement called Testoripped and has seen amazing results… weight loss and awesome muscle definition and gain…

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any female supplements that are comparable to this, either specific products or vitamin type stuff. I know many are just a rip off.

    I work out 5 days a week and was wondering if there is anything for women to aid in weight loss/getting in shape. Like I said I work out and eat a healthy balanced diet.

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      in that case you should be fine without meds
      people shouldnt depend on meds to lose weight
      i mean, weight lost with wil power and effort is probably going to stay lost while the weight lost with no effort except swallowing a pill will be gained again since you will be careless since you know that you still have the pills which your body will probably get used to in a while and will start to have no effect
      anyways just keep working out and eat healthy is my suggestion

  18. QUESTION:
    Weight loss for women with PCOS and low thyroid levels?
    I was recently diagnosed with PCOS as wel las low thyroid function (not low enough to be hypothyroidism). I was wondering, would a regular family doctor prescribe me Metformin? If not, what natural supplements can I take to help me lose weight? Multivitamins? Would taking Thyroid helper assist me in any way? Would birth control help? What’s the most effective medication to help in weight loss for PCOS and low thyroid function in your experience? I’m already on a low GI/GL diet and will resume my exercise regime as soon as finals are over (i usually hit the gym 3 times a week at least).

    • ANSWER:
      I know of a really great product line that will definitely help you achieve the body image you are hoping for in a matter of weeks. It consists of all natural supplements that help counteract the unwanted parts of your diet and assist your body in losing fat and calories while gaining muscle. You should definitely check it out, it’s called The Core 4 System made by Xyngular. You can take a look and see what you think at www.xyngular.com/caseysmith.

  19. QUESTION:
    Creatine and weight loss for women?
    A friend of a friend lost a ton of weight taking creatine (a female) i am wondering how this works out.how should i take the creating in junction to my dails workout routine. i want to lose fat and build muscle. i do not want to bulk up i just want to lose weight and be FIRM all over. flat stomach etc. When should i take the creatine? and what should i take it with? what diet best works with this supplement?Currently i am on a calorie reduced diet , i run every day 2-4 miles and strength train at the gym 2-3 ties a week.

    • ANSWER:
      I question if the creatine your friend used was solely responsible for her weight loss. Was she also dieting and exercising well? Creatine is known to cause water retention- ideally within muscles, thus boosting muscle size and endurance, but it also settles into your body tissues overall. In fact, to really get the full benefit of creatine you need to drink at least 12-16 glasses of water every day. This is not really viewed as a weight loss supplement. It is definitely good for building muscle mass. I think your are saying you don’t want that. You also won’t want the added weight from water retention. Lifting weights and your running regimen along with reasonable eating habits is the way to go. Sounds like you are doing that. There is a lot of really good info out there if you do a google on ‘creatine women’. If you decide to take it you want to gear it to your female body weight so you’re not dosing like a man would do which can cause some unpleasant, though not common side effects. Just sounds like you are already on the right track and need to give yourself some time. And by the way, don’t know what kind of strength training you do but if you skip the machines, for the most part and work the free weights as hard as you can you’ll get better benefit and you won’t bulk up- just tone beautifully.

  20. QUESTION:
    Weight loss advice? I’m helpless?
    Here’s my situation:I’m 24 yrs old, and recently my weight has just skyrocketed. I’m 5’4 and should weigh between 130-140, but I weigh 173. That’s a BMI of almost 30. All the women in my family have had or do have weight issues, and I’m lost on what to do. I have asthma, so strenuous workouts are almost unbearable, however, I know I need a physical activity. I enjoy swimming, but I don’t want to join some crowded gym where everyone can see me in a bathingsuit. I am also clueless about what to eat. I’ve tried the Atkins diet, and though it worked I was weak and sick all the time. I’ve done Weight Watchers, which I did enjoy, but I can’t afford that food all the time, and I don’t know which foods are how many points. I would like a diet supplement but with the hundreds out there I don’t know which ones are good. I’m feeling more and more helpless. I’ve been tempted to do Nutisystem, but that is too expensive for me. Does anyone know a way to get the pounds off quick and safe?!

    • ANSWER:
      There are a lot of points to adress here, so stick with me.

      You don’t need an expensive diet plan to eat healthy. Every food item has a label on it with serving size and nutrients per serving. The simplest way to lose weight is to lower your overall caloric intake. With exercise your intake should be lower then the amount you burn. If not you will not lose any weight.

      The Atkin’s diet is not good for your heart. Too much fats and what not. Anything that clogs your arteries is bad for your. Period. Even if the weight comes off.

      The asthma may be a problem. Try low-intensity, but long lasting exercises. Long periods of walking for instance. It will be tedious and take a long time, but its one of the best options for you.

      One of the best things you can do to help keep exercising is to get a partner. Someone to help motivate you and go exercise with you. It’ll keep you focused and lower your margin of error.

      Good luck.

  21. QUESTION:
    I secretly want my friend to fail on her weight loss. Am I a horrible person?
    I was talking to my friend the other day, and she said she lost about 12lbs in 2-3 weeks on this radical HCD diet program or something. If you don’t know what it is, it’s when you literally take injections to lose weight. It sounds completely unsafe to me, but she’s a grown woman who’s responsible for her own choices.

    I’m happy that she lost 12 lbs, but at the same time, I’m really jealous because she took the easy way out, and it’s working for her. I on the otherhand, am exercising and eating right, and with sluggish results. I’m secretely hoping that she’ll gain every pound back so she realizes that all of these diet supplements/programs are scams, and then eventually stop wasting her money on them.

    So, is what I’m feeling normal? Why can’t I just be happy for her success without worrying about how she got to where she is?

    • ANSWER:
      I know a lot of people are going to call you mean and give me thumbs down, but I’d feel mad too. Last year my friend and I were trying to lose weight. I exercised and ate right which took me a while to lose the lbs. Instead of doing the same, my friend just started being anorexic. Even though I was concerned that she was hurting her body, I still was jealous at how she dropped the lbs in just a few weeks. It’s a natural thing in human beings.

  22. QUESTION:
    Diet pills after pregnancy?
    My bbygirl is 4 months old now so i’m wanting to get back into exercising. I gained 60 pound with her and so far have lost 42 of that. I wanna lose at least another 30 pounds but i have hit that “plateau” everyone hits. So i’m wondering if Alli for women weight loss pills work or any suggestions of weight loss supplements to help me move forward. Thank yu :)

    • ANSWER:
      Diet pills don’t work. Cutting calories and exercising (more vigorously than you have been, if you’ve hit a plateau) are the only things that will work.

  23. QUESTION:
    Is 1200 calories too few for my weight loss regimen?
    I’ve started a new diet, and originally was planning to hover at around 1000 calories, but I read somewhere that 1200 was the minimum necessary for the average woman to function normally. I need to lose a lot of weight, so I figured the less calories I eat, the better, but I want to be smart about it.

    I’ve been exercising more – taking the stairs instead of the elevator (I live on the fifth floor, and most of my classes are on the third or fourth floors of their buildings), and a few light things in the morning like crunches and weights. I’m planning to start doing two mile power walks in the mornings, too.

    My typical diet already supplements the “healthy” alternative – I don’t drink sodas, I only drink skim milk, I only eat 12 grain or wheat breads, and the like. My primary problem is that I eat a lot more than I should, and eat way too many snacks and sweets.

    Basically, should I be eating closer to 1500 calories, or is 1200 okay?

    • ANSWER:
      What everyone above me said is correct. The reason they say to eat from 1200 – 1500 calories a day as a bare minimum is that if you eat under this ammount your body will behave as it is starving and it will slow it’s metabolism down in order to save itself from dying. When your betabolism is slowed down your body will burn off calories at a much slower rate.

      Thats why if you want to lose weight and burn calories you will have to eat over 1200 – 1500 calories a day so that your body doesn’t go into starvation mode and slow down it’s metabolism.

  25. QUESTION:
    What is the best diet pill to go along with diet and exercise?
    I am currently on a diet and working out, but am not getting the results I want. I am looking for an OTC diet pill/ supplement to aid in weight loss. I am working on losing about 50 lbs. I am not trying to do it over night, as that is crazy, but I have a good workout, burning more calories than I am eating, cut out soda, chips, candy, junk food in general, increased water intake, taking a good woman’s multi vitamin, and doing both cardio and toning exercises. What is the best diet pill/supplement out there?

    • ANSWER:
      They all give the same resuls as diet and exercise alone will give and you will have more money in your pocket.
      All evidence is anecdotal.
      Clinically proven means nothing.
      Only Alli has FDA approval and you have to have a BMI of 28 or over to buy it.
      Even with Alli you have to diet and exercise.

  26. QUESTION:
    Any tips for weight loss?
    I am trying to lose weight. I would love to lose 90 pounds, but because I am 5’9.5, being 110lbs would make me appear almost skeletal. Realistically, I want to lose at least 60 pounds. I know that CHANGING my eating lifestyle, not DIETING, & exercising is the correct way to achieve this goal. However, I know there are supplements out there. Speaking from personal use/experience, not facts, what can you tell me about weight loss and any/all of the following:

    Acai berry pills
    Cayenne pills
    Fish oil pills
    Slimquick (for women)

    NOW’s Mission
    The NOW mission is – To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

    In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid 0 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods-a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

    In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy.

  29. QUESTION:
    has anyone here heard of “spleena” and “shake off”?
    its supposed to be some diet supplement you take for weight loss, and shake off is something you drink right before sleep. I know a few women who have lost up to 50 lbs using this. Ive never heard of it though? can anyone tell me more about it? And please no “cutting back eat healthy blah blaaahhh” answers I just wanna know what this stuff is.

    • ANSWER:
      Great post! I totally understand how you feel. I’m also trying to lose weight and I found this great product which is working for me (it’s all 100% natural). You can check the website at
      http://www.less-weight.us , I had a free trial and paid less than .00 shipping and handling. Best of luck!

  30. QUESTION:
    What diet should I go on?
    I’m 17, male and 6’3. I’m looking to lose about ten or fifteen pounds body fat and gain some muscle as well. I recently joined a gym and have been working out 6 times a week, and drinking protein supplements after workouts. Already I am starting to see a slight gain in muscle, but I now want to go on a healthy diet that will help start the weight loss.

    My ideal diet would be something designed for men and that not only will help weight loss, but will also help me put on muscle, but one designed for both men and women would be fine too as long as it works well for both genders.

    Any recommendations?

    • ANSWER:
      Well to continue putting on muscle but losing fat is certainly possible but it will mostly reside in your diet.. You can start adding in some Cardio routines on your off days (Running, Sprinting, etc) that will burn off the fat but without the proper diet your task will be ALOT harder..

      Be warned though, if you overtrain and you do not have the proper diet you body can and sometimes will feed off muscle to fuel your workouts so make sure you stay on HIGH protein diets, high fiber, and make sure your getting plenty of Carbs to fuel your workouts…
      The more water you drink the less water your body will retain, keep low on the sodium.. /fyi

      Good Luck

  31. QUESTION:
    for personal trainers or people who have worked with one!?
    I have my first hour with a personal trainer today. I have a couple questions. I have some very pre-conceived notions so maybe someone can help me out!

    1- do personal trainers only know their program, or are they open to other programs (diet and exercise)

    2- will a personal trainer give the same workout to a fat woman, thin woman, inbetween woman?

    3- will they give me the same workout as a man?

    4- are they big advocates of weight loss supplements?

    5- Any other tid bits would be great!

    Just for your info…… I am 29 years old, 5’2, 125 lbs. worked out since a teenager. Fifteen pounds lighter since I have had three children. A little bit of a health nut when it comes to eating…… and very active. I have exercised in every which way since i was 17 years old…. I enjoy getting books fromt the library and gleaning info from them. I just don’t want to go there and be frustrated that this young kid who thinks he know it all… really does not. thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      A good personal trainer will tailor the workout to your capabilities and then increse the intensity as you become more fit. They are a very good source of nutrition information and usually recommend dietary supplements over diet supplements. They should find out what you want to do, whether it to lose weight, tone, bulk up, increase stamina or whatever and then tailor the workout to your goals.

      Personal trainers love people like you who already understand and appreciate the importance and health benefits of fitness.

  32. QUESTION:
    I have a few questions about dieting and calories…?
    Okay, so here is the thing. I have previously worked at LA Weight Loss for 2 years and worked at a gym for a year. So I know the “proper” way to lose weight. You need to eat often, small meals and healthy food. Losing 2 lbs a week at most. Along with being active. I get that. However, I was in a car accident almost 2 years back that up until 8 months ago when I completed psychical therapy, I could do any working out. Before the accident I was 125lbs. I was 205 at my highest weight due to being sedentary, upset and eating bad. My fault, I know. :(

    Anyway, I am getting married in 2.5 months. I want to feel good about myself and like how I look in the photos. Which I will need about 30 more pounds off, or more if I can. I am 5’2 and almost 25.

    So here is my deal: I did a lot of internet research on calories. The min and max. How low is too low and at what calories that your body will go into starvation mode and so on. I read that just above starvation, depending on the person can be anywhere from 400-700 calories.

    A lot of people say no less than 1200 calories and to lose no more than 1-2lbs per week. And the only reasons I found of why you shouldn’t do very low calories diets and lose fast was being deprived of vitamins and nutrients, that you are losing water and muscle, not fat.. or once you get the weight off you gain it right back because you binge and cant control yourself then gain even more and so on.

    Starvation mode can also be triggered by if your body is used to 3000 calories a day and you all of a sudden drop to 1000, yeah its a shock. you need to ease into it. Before I dropped my calories, I was around 1200-1300. So I did not jump into it.

    I also found out that Dr’s do 800 calorie diets for people. But it is monitored. Those people are also 300-400 lbs. Someone of that weight needs more than someone of my weight.

    So here is what I have been doing for 2 weeks. I am staying between 850-1000 calories a day. I am taking Women’s One A Day multivitamin (and I also have a calcium supplement and Flintstone vitamin everyday, Lol) Here is what I eat: 2 servings of lean proteins, 2 servings of starches, 3 fruits, 4 veggies, 2 dairies and 1 fat. (this is the LA Weight Loss diet) However, I am choosing very low calorie items. Instead of a banana which is 110 calories, I will have strawberries for 35 calories. I eat healthy fats with omega 3 and 6. Basically I make every single calorie count and I never consume an “empty” calorie. I also have good carbs. I make my own bread and I can eat straight grains and oats. I eat nothing processed except my dairy as I basically have no choice. I also watch my fiber intake and get my recommended daily or very close to.

    I am very aware and concerned for my body. I do not want to hurt it and I am not looking to get attention. When I did my research I looked up symptoms of being malnourished and “starving” and the symptoms were constant head ache, dizziness, being very tired and irritable. Also hair falling out and all.

    So here is my thinking: I am getting more nutrients than someone who eats nothing for breakfast, McDonalds for lunch and Taco Bell for dinner. So to me, it seems better to eat 1000 calories of very healthy food verses junk and getting no nutrients and tons of fat. I think its crazy that people get criticized for not eating enough calories, even though they are healthy calories. But what about those eating too much EMPTY calories? Way worse in my book. I also drink AT LEAST a gallon of water everyday and I work out at the gym for close to 2 hours. 1 hour of cardio and then I go to the weight room for 45min and stretch for 15min.

    I have a friend from the gym I worked at that is a personal trainer. I have been speaking with him about all this. And he said that everyone’s body is and can be different. To just really monitor myself and if I get those symptoms, to eat more. He thinks I am fine, especially doing it for such a short period. He says I am doing it in the best way possible and being as healthy as I can about it. Because there are TONS of Americans who eat 1 meal a day and its fast food and barely take in any fluids or vitamins!

    Well let me tell you… I feel awesome! I am more alert, happy, very energetic, I sleep really well and never wake up tired. I have never felt better! So I think I am okay. I never feel thirsty or too hungry. I usually eat before I feel hunger. I eat 4-5 small meals a day. I Kinda snack all day really. 2 weeks ago I was 185 and today I am 171. So it’s working. No negative symptoms.

    So my question is this: Is there something I am missing? Again, I looked up all the “dangers” of a low calorie diet. Not getting the vitamins I need… well between the multivitamin and healthy eating, I’m fine right? And as far as losing just water weight, I drink plenty and I also urinate often and its always clear. So it’s not water weight right? Plus I feel great. So am I doing myself right?

    I’m not s
    My fats usually consist of Olive Oil, Avacados, Fish, or Nuts and I also do take a fish oil supplement. Sorry I forgot to mention that. Thanks for that answer. I get what your saying, but I still feel its better then someone eating 1200 calories of junk. So judging someones nutrient intake by just calories is not right. But yes, I will look into a high quality vitamin, Thanks! :)
    Oh and my multi has 100% vitamin D, calcium and iron. Plus I have 2 dairiesa day. Usually a yogurt and 8oz of milk. And a calcium supplement which I previously stated. I think I’m okay in that department :)

    • ANSWER:
      I answered your question yesterday, but for some reason, it would not post (Yahoo! Answers is currently unavailable…)

      First of all, let me tell you that it’s nice to get a question in Diet and Fitness, where the Asker actually knows what she’s talking about! You did your research on good nutrition and proper exercise.

      I’m sorry you had a car accident, I’m 125lbs myself and I know this could happen tomorrow for me, not being able to exercise and gaining one pound a week! Then on top of having to deal with healing and physical therapy, now you have to tackle the almighty weight loss.

      Usually, people use the “avoid the starvation mode” at around 1,200 calories, which would be good for an average woman like me. That number is your BMR, the Basal Metabolic Rate, before exercising.
      (The BMR for women is the weight in kg x 7.18 + 795 and for men, it’s the weight in kg x 10.2 + 879).
      A 200lbs women would have a BMR of 1,450 calories, so I’d say you’re short of a meal or about 450 to 600 calories.

      Now, my BMR is 1,200 calories…
      If I eat 1,200 calories, I maintain my weight.
      If I eat 1,200 calories and exercise, I lose weight (one pound for every 3,500 calories of exercising).
      If I eat 1,600 calories and exercise, I maintain my weight (providing that I do an average of 400 calories/exercising a day).
      If I eat 1,600 calories and do not exercise, I will gain weight (about 3 pounds/month!!).

      I would never, ever, ever eat under my BMR, on purpose, even in the healthiest way, because then my amazing body will adapt to lower calories requirements. It’s not really the starving stage yet, where the body is eating the muscle mass because there’s no fat reserves left, but once you have a lower metabolism, you will never, ever be able to eat normally again and not gain weight. Besides, I’d rather have a cup of milk than suck on a calcium chewable!!
      Even if I eat 1,600 calories and exercise, I still use multivitamins (One-A-Day) and vitamins E and sometimes some extra calcium if feel I did not get enough that day.

      There are two things in your question that I want to get out of the way.
      First, you’re getting married and you want to lose weight to look nice on the pictures…what does your fiancé think about that idea? Was he already your fiancé when you were 125lbs or did he came up later. Some guys are attracted to big girls and will lose interest as you lose the pounds. Other guys will be attracted to skinny girls, skin and bones variety, and would lose interest if they gain 10 pounds. Whatever they say about your “personality” guys are really into body types (have you ever seen Johnny Depp with anybody other than very thin women?).

      Second, you say and I quote “I feel awesome! I am more alert, happy, very energetic, I sleep really well and never wake up tired. I have never felt better!”
      I felt the exact same way when I did a 10 days fast. Nothing but water. No nutrients, nothing. Then my body could free itself from the constant demands of digestion and elimination and therefore the mind was free to focus on thinking. In 10 days, I won a Chess Tournament, I learned a one-year course (accounting) and ace the exam and also I memorized the entire book about driving and got my license at my first try (I’m French and the driving exam is WAY harder than in the US and you rarely succeed the first time .
      I did not have to go to lunch so I would go swimming instead, full of energy, as you said, alert and happy.
      Healthy food did not do that to me, lack of food did.

      So you might just feel great because you don’t have to digest so much. But this cannot lasts forever. At one point, you’ll need to eat more and under 1,200 calories, eating healthy is still a real challenge to get everything you need and not get hungry. I have no idea how you can manage to eat less than 1,000 calories and not be hungry or frustrated because all the good stuff are out of limit.
      Food should be a source of enjoyment, not something you’re trying to avoid at all costs. Food is not only for the body, it’s also for the soul and you need a treat from times to times.

      I agree with you, it’s not just about the calories but what your body needs. I could eat a Big Mac for lunch and one for dinner, and therefore meet my calories requirements for the day, while at the save time, clogging my arteries and setting the field for my heart attack or stroke.

      About the 1 or 2 pounds loss/week. It’s not about water gain or water loss or muscle mass gain, it’s about fat reserves loss through exercising. You need to eat your BMR and then exercise for whatever you need to lose, knowing that each pound of fat reserves is 3,500 calories.
      A 500 calories exercising daily would then make you lose one pound of fat reserves a week . This is already a lot of exercising (about 2 hours walking or 1h30 bicycling). You can exercise for 4 hours and aim for a 2 pounds fat reserves loss. Above that, you would have to be on vacation somewhere where you walk all day long, bicycle a lot, swim in the ocean and participate in a water polo game in the pool, do some trapeze, yoga and dance lessons and a lot of scuba diving and horse riding and dance all night in the night club!

      I don’t know how long you will last doing what you’re doing now. It’s a question of commitment and you seem to be very committed but I’m afraid eating under your BMR will doom you for a life of very low calories diets and exercising or easy weight gains, because your body won’t need so much anymore.
      You will still be healthy is you stay on a low calories diet (in fact low calories diets make you live longer) but you’ll miss out on one of the pleasure in life…gastronomy!

      I wish you the best and happy nuptials!

  33. QUESTION:
    Are there Doctors or Physical Therapists who would promote, “Functional Lab and Evidence Based,” supplements?
    Measurable (compound biomarkers) results in making an Objective recommendation.
    Testimonials consistently show; improved sleep, healing, decreased chronic pain, decreased pain from osteoarthritis, increased energy, decreased need (as identified by a prescribing Dr.) need for meds for high blood pressure, insulin and pain meds.
    These supplements include consideration of how different supplements, nutrients work symbiotically for better wellness results, and those which can counteract each other.
    Clients are protected from overdosing on vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbal, etc.which is a problem for people, “winging it,” and (over) buying in health food stores, grocery stores, etc.
    All ingredients are bioavailable and well absorbed and digested. There are no fillers or additives to which a person can have a negative reaction. The fillers we use are real, whole fruits and vegetables.
    Lab test elegantly designed by top researchers and functional lab in the country.
    Before now this level of customized lab based was only accessible to world class athletes and the wealthy.
    By using lab tests, evaluating specific biomarkers for health, a person’s health is proactively addressed.
    The objectivity of testing, eliminates the guessing and confusion about buying and using supplements.
    The product has 50+ nutrients (evidence based in peer reviewed research findings), far more than any over the counter product.
    By having targeted daily nutritional supplements and others based upon lab testing to identify physiological need, people can save over 0/month compared to trying to piecemeal a supplementation program from stores.
    Furthermore, due to functional lab testing, an individual can retest themselves periodically to identify progression toward greater health, on-going need for a supplement or problems which should be evaluated by a physician.
    Some physicians are beginning to practice, “Functional Medicine,” using such tests to aid in, “treating the cause,” versus the symptoms.
    Finally, with your patients’ health and wellness better managed, the clinician will benefit from added income to improve their bottom line.
    The main products, a primary lab test looking a 3 major precoursers to illness done either in the privacy of the clients home or in your clinic costs 9 which includes expeditious pickup by FedEx.
    The purchase of the test includes a first month of general (non customized) daily nutritional supplements until lab results are completed and the monthly (usually autoshipped by customer preference) customized daily nutritional supplements which cost less than /month. Clinicians and Customers (your patients or other) can earn free montly supplements by adding and maintaining 3 other customers for the same product.
    Buy choosing autohip, the customer (patients or others), gets price breaks on other supplements, many of which can and should be preceeded by a corresponding lab test, excellent low glycemic weight loss/managment system focusing on helping the customer to breakthrough and reprogram their bodys, “set points” The weight loss/management program also works with retraining the body and mind to be more conscious of being full and satissified which is why all of the testimonials bring up being able to keep the weight off with minimal effort. No other product has such a low glycemic, yet balanced index.
    Other supplements and innovative ways to work them into the diet, are available for children. Specific guidelines make sure that young persons” get the right program for nutritional supplementation.
    The company also provides very high quality, no perfumes, chemical free skin care products all of which can be used by men, women and children. These products are made in Switzerland by the same company which produces very high priced (an not appropriate for men, women and children for use) products like Lancome, Estee Lauder and several others. The difference in our products is a patented polypeptide evidence based researched which restores and maintains skin elasticity.
    The products, focusing mostly on the flag ship product, the test and custom daily nutrition can be both actively recommended or passively presented wiith tasteful posters or signage and the very tastefully done catalog available in your waiting areas.
    As a Physical Therapist, I feel that these products, especially the custom nutritional supplements have a place and great roll to play in wholesome clinical practice. JAMA has come out and through thourough review of the research data about our food sources, to say that , “All Americans should be taking daily nutritional supplements.” Objectivity and sound research, I believe are the key to these being viable products and services for clinical practices of all types.

    I want to know if other clinicians agree and if not, what are their blocks to accepting this and these types of products. I hope to get robus

  34. QUESTION:
    Best diet and exercise plan for muscle building and fat loss?
    Hi, I’m 28, Female, 5’3, 123-125 lbs. I am a runner, I train and run in two 1/2 marathons per year. With all this running I cannot seem to cut the fat off my body. I am hungry all the time when I am running and seem to crave sugar and junk, i never gain weight but i never lose it either. I am inspired by women that are very fit and lean. I do NOT want giant, and very pronounced muscles. I want to look fit, toned and sexy. My weight lifting consists of boy-pushups 2 sets of 20, and crunches-leg lifts-plank. Could someone help me get started on diet and an excersize plan or point me in the direction of a great site to visit? Supplements?
    Thank You

    • ANSWER:
      Your described body measurements give me the impression that you’re actually quite alluring already and it would be a shame and a crime if anyone kicked you out of bed based on what you’re telling us.

      The only advice I’d give you is to get more disciplined with cutting out the junk and sweets immediately after intense exercise. Just don’t eat it. You’ve already demonstrated that you’ve got the exercise goals within your grasp…just expand it to your food intake.

      Another thing; you didn’t really describe in sufficient detail your exercise regimen. You said you trained for two half-marathons in a year, but that leaves a large amount of time not accounted for. Are you running regularly? How much?

      Cross training by bicycling can also benefit you. 2-2 and a half hours of intense bicycling can burn almost as many calories as running, depending on your average running speed.

      I am from Singapore and I have been using USANA products for a year now. USANA products are of TOP Quality.

      Supplementation in current days is getting more and more important as our cells are subject to Free Radical attack every second, due to our lifestyle, the food we eat (over-processed food) and lack of exercise. Even when you exercise, there are more Free Radicals attack and your body needs to have the right nutrients to support it.

      To achieve a healthy body with desired weight, you need to do some exercise as well. The product recommended could be the USANA RESET. It is full of nutrients and has a Low Glycemic index and will reduce your craving.

      I do not believe in Miracles but believe that with the right supplementation and a healthy lifestyle, we will have a healthy body.

      Btw, USANA is the only direct marketing company that received 5-star rating in the 4th edition Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements.

  39. QUESTION:
    Help on dietary supplements?!?
    Im young, and i feel like i am over weight, is it a bad idea to take a dietary supplement? im 12 years old, im 140 pounds, but im 5’6″. is it deadly to take different dietary supplements at the same time? i hear of vitamins in supplements that are healthy like , •Vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 helps keep your red blood cells and nerves healthy. As people grow older, some have trouble absorbing vitamin B12 naturally found in food. Instead, they can choose foods, like fortified cereals, that have this vitamin added or use a B12 supplement.
    •Calcium. Calcium works with vitamin D to keep bones strong at all ages. Bone loss can lead to fractures in both older women and men. Calcium is found in milk and milk products (fat-free or low-fat is best), canned fish with soft bones, dark-green leafy vegetables like spinach, and foods with calcium added.
    •Vitamin D. Some people’s bodies make enough vitamin D if they are in the sun for 10 to 15 minutes at least twice a week. But, if you are older, you may not be able to get enough vitamin D that way. Try adding vitamin D-fortified milk and milk products, vitamin D-fortified cereals, and fatty fish to your diet, and/or use a vitamin D supplement.
    •Vitamin B6. This vitamin is needed to form red blood cells. It is found in potatoes, bananas, chicken breasts, and fortified cereals. Would it be bad to take different supplements that benefited me like this? or should i just take the supplement with the vitamin i would normally get least and get the rest out of food.

    • ANSWER:
      Lol, don’t worry about supplements, your too young for them (most bottle say 18+ on them). If you want to loose weight, then do it by eating less and exercising more. Your too young for weightlifting, since if you start too early if will screw up your hormones, but don’t be afraid to go out and run or play ball with friends, and try to eat less. Also, try to limit fast food to once a week, although once a month is best. Eating a fairly balanced diet will get you all the nutrients you need anyways, try to eat more fruits and veggies and less fatty foods like soda or candy. You shouldn’t worry too much about your diet though, but make healthier choices and know when your full, and eat when you are really hungry not just bored (I’m guilty of going through a full bag of chips when I’m bored, or watching TV, or playing online, but I usually just chew gum). Again, your too young for weightlifting, but you can always do push ups, pull ups, sit ups, and dips. I had problems with obesity at your age, and I weighted about the same, but I was shorter. Loosing weight is mostly a mental challenge, as actually going out to jog for 20 minutes or eating a salad might make you feel like crap, but you should know its good for you and try your hardest to achieve your goals.

      Hope I helped =P

  40. QUESTION:
    the real training of a true champion?
    What has happened in the era of weight training? Everyday supplement after supplement, scam after scam, steroids after steroids. Where is the natural strength of men and natural health habit. We look at these roided out men on the magazines and these drugged out woman with very harsh diets on the magazines and we want that? Please? NATURAL BODYBUILDERS back then had it all. A good physique, a healthy body inside and out, and strength, and most lived up to about 90 yrs old STILL looking good and strong. Can’t you see its all about MONEY. You don’t need 8-10 meals a day, you only need three good HEALTHY meals a day. For weight loss, you don’t need supplements and what not. You NEED TO FAST. The body is always on two states, either your eating or not eating. What happens when you don’t eat you get skinny. Now ofcourse if you fail to eat you’ll look unhealthy and sick…THAT IS NOT THE WAY TO DO IT. This is how you do it. You eat your 3 or 4 healthy meals rich in all vitamins. But you only fast 1-2 times per week.

    Example. Lets say your going to fast on monday.
    Monday morning you have breakfast, nice full meal.
    later on you have a good rich lunch
    then at dinner you have a good nice dinner.
    FROM THERE lets say its 6 or 7 pm you start your fasting
    you wont eat anything until the following day(tuesday) at 7pm.
    Now you MUST always drink water in this fasting state. If you are just starting off and can’t handle it, you may eat fresh fruits to fight of the stomach emptiness but later on keep it very low. Have a healthy body. This works, it really does, Its a shame these so called helpers of fitness really want to reduce your money and not your belly…Good luck
    nathan, fasting is not bad, its actually healthy, look it up. Do you even know whats in your whey….look up “the truth about bodybuilding supplements” on youtube…you’ll see what I am getting at. And I agree with that other comment on milk and squat rack…the basic excercises build the most out of a physique…Then after maybe about 3 to 4 years of dedication on basics, you can move up to isolation excercises…if your goal is both building a physique and strength with weights that is. Im happy your in shape, keep it up….All you need is a good breakfast of some good old fashion EGGS. Thats my protein hehe

    • ANSWER:
      Guys want to be huge. You can’t get huge without perfect timing of nutrients. I’m big now all natural too (I use whey protein). I used to be small, 5’8 125 pounds 2% bodyfat, I’m now 5’8 175 pounds 5%. I don’t know why you talk about fasting, that shit’s bad. I never do that and I maintain a low bodyfat by running and lifting weights.

  41. QUESTION:
    To Answer about 80% of the questions on here?
    Here are answers to about 80% of the questions on here, they get very repetitive and people dont take the time to do a search to see if their question has been asked..so here you go………..

    You cant spot reduce fat so no you cant just lose fat on your stomach, you lose it all over.

    Creatine is for energy. Your body naturally produces it and is used in ATP ( your bodies energy source) The supplement will add a little water weight but will help you work out longer and harder. It does not actually make your muscles bigger

    Whey protein can be found cheap at Wal-Mart ( about .00 for a 2 lb tun) Your body can only handle about 20-25 grams at a time. Your body does not store protein so overuse will convert into fat.

    Carbs are essential to your body and brain function. Cutting carbs will put your body in Ketosis in which you will burn through protein as fuel (which is not recommended). Carbs are not bad and any diet that has you on a low carb diet will ultimately fail.

    Yes you can do to much cardio. If you do cardio without resistance training you will burn muscle as well as fat, and that will slow your metabolism down. 1 lb of lean muscle will burn 50 calories a day so 10 lbs of lean muscle will burn 500 calories a day. Resistance training is important.

    The Acai Berry is good for antioxidents and some nutrients, it is not a good weight loss system.

    BMI=Crap, dont go by your bmi because it doesnt take into account age or muscle mass. Muscle weighs more than fat so if you went by BMI and bodybuilder with a low body fat percentage would be obses by BMI standards, dont worry about BMI

    Caloric intake:
    Women – 2000/day
    Men- 2800/day
    adjust if you need to lose or gain weight.

    Bodybuilding routines – go to www.bodybuilding.com and look up the routines there

    Lose is L.O.S.E not loose

    Thank you.

  42. QUESTION:
    Building muscle while losing fat=Frustrating process. PLEASE HELP!!?
    I’m 5’8″, female, 20 years old and weigh 139 lbs as of this morning. The thing is I weighed 138 yesterday. I did nothing during the day that would cause weight gain. And I know that it’s impossible for a woman to put on 1 lb of muscle overnight. I’m doing everything right (to the best of my knowledge anyway). I’m on a high protein, moderate carb, and low fat diet. I do boot camp 4-5 days a week which is a lot of weight training and compound exercises. I also do pilates 3 days a week. I’ve been doing this for about a month and there has been virtually no change in my weight. I weighed 144 when I started. And I’m not losing consistently. Some days I’ll gain a few ounces or a pound even and some days I’ll lose or I’ll stay the same. It’s a slow process. I look better overall but the only place where I really notice a difference is my hips. I’m not eating very many calories. I usually keep it under 950 cals a day. I know that’s considered undereating for a lot of people but I used to be anorexic so my metabolism is messed up. If I eat even 1500 cals a day I end up gaining weight. And I’m still maintaining or building with the amount I’m eating now. So what should I do to speed up fat loss? Drop my calories? I’m thinking of adding cardio a few times a week to speed things up. Any suggestions? What kind of exercise and for how long? Or is there a specific kind of food or supplement I should be taking? I want to weigh between 125-130 and be really toned and fit. What else can I do to make that happen and soon? And I’ve recently started eating more fruits but not enough to cause carb overload. Usually about 3 servings of fruit per day. Is that the problem? I heard that fruit isn’t conducive to weight loss. Thanks for reading and thanks for the help!

    • ANSWER:
      You really need to eat more. I understand your fear of gaining but you need to slowly get your calories up. Try increasing your calories only by a 100 calories or so every couple of days. If you are continuing your bootcamp classes, you won’t gain if you get the calories gradually up. The key word here is gradually. Getting the right amount of calories will help stabilize your hormone levels and crank up your metabolism. It may also help to go a little bit heavier with the weights. I don’t recommend boot camp style classes more than 4x per week because the potential for injury is too great without enough recovery time. The pilates classes may not help you all that much. I would suggest replacing pilates for a little while with cardio sessions.

      The weight fluctuations are normal. You’re building lean mass so your weight will include the additional muscle tissue, glycogen and water that comes with weight training (not to mention the contents of your digestive system). Try not to focus on the scale but instead pick up a set of plastic Accumeasure calipers and learn how to measure your body fat.


Diet Weight Loss Supplements Articles

This low carb boot camp diet is a higher protein, lower carbohydrate diet. Research tends to show us again and again that low carb diets are better for weight loss compared to low calorie or low fat diets. Research from Harvard School of Public Health investigated what would happen to people who ate a 1500-calorie low fat diet (1800 calories for men) compared to an 1800-calorie low carb diet (2100 calorie for men). The findings were that the higher calorie low carb dieters lost more weight than the lower calorie low fat dieters. A third group was studied who consumed a 1500-calorie (1800 calories for men) low carb diet and these people lost the most weight.

Another study looked at people on a calorie matched low carbohydrate or low fat diet, the food ratios were as follows:

Low-fat diet: 60% carbohydrate, 20% fat and 20% protein.
Lower-carb diet: 45% carbohydrate, 35% fat and 20% protein.

Women eating the low carb diet lost an average of 3.4 lbs (1.5 kg) more than the women eating the low fat diet (an average of 19.6 lbs v 16.2 lbs). Even the low carb diet was still fairly high in carbohydrates and could have been reduced further to maximise weight loss results. Again clearly demonstrating that calories are not the only important thing to consider when eating to lose weight, but also the type of food you eat.

Reducing carbohydrate usually means an increase in protein and fat. But most people fear eating too much fat because they think it will make them fat (remember 1g of fat contains 9 calories) and get advised against eating too much protein as it damages the kidneys and affects bone health. Both of these points are contentious issues and a thorough discussion of this topic is not warranted here, but suffice to say that a higher protein diet (43% carbohydrate, 33% protein and 22% fat) was more favourable in terms of weight loss when combined with resistance exercise to a conventional diet (53% carbohydrate, 19% protein and 26% fat) and exercise. Furthermore the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association reported that a low glycemic load (GL) diet helps to reduce insulin, triglycerides and aids weight loss in overweight and obese people.

This two week phase is certainly not the Atkins Diet, there is no restriction on the amount of carbs you can eat, just the type of carbs and it will form the foundation of how you should eat to not only lose weight initially but then with certain foods added back in for a fuller varied diet help you maintain a healthy weight.

This type of low carb boot camp phase is the staple of many successful weight loss programmes including, but not exclusively:
Anne Louise Gittleman Fat Flush plan
Charles Poliquin BioSignature
Patrick Holford The low GL diet

I have taken different things from the above named programmes as well as from the likes of Jonny Bowden and Mauro Di Pasquale to create the following 2-week bootcamp.

After the initial two weeks are over other foods are gradually added back to the diet to make it a more balanced diet to meet all your nutritional needs.

So here it is

Principle number 1

Protein in Greek means of first importance so make sure your first choice in a meal is a good quality portion of protein. Once you have worked out your daily protein requirement simply divided this by 3 or 5 (depending on whether you eat 3 or 5 meals a day) and eat that amount of protein at each meal.

To work out roughly your protein requirement take your body weight in kilos and times by 1.2 if you are female or 1.5 if you are male:

58kg female needs to eat 70g of protein a day
75kg male needs to eat 112g of protein a day

Remember that all meat, fish seafood and poultry is roughly 22% protein and you can work out how much you actually need to eat.

70g of protein x 5 = 350g of animal flesh
112g of protein x 5 = 560g of animal flesh

Example
Protein requirement = 550g per day
Breakfast: 120g
Snack: 40g
Lunch: 150g
Snack: 40g
Dinner: 200g

Weigh your protein after it has been cooked to make sure you are getting the right amount at each meal. Do this for just a few days so you can get an idea of how much things weigh, after that dont get anal about it just make an educated guess on your portion size and dont stress one if you are slightly over the required amount or if on another day you are slightly under.

However, make sure to eat quality organic meat and fish to avoid oestrogens, growth hormones, antibiotics and pesticides stored in animal fat.

Principle number 2

For 14 days eat a 100% strict LOW carbohydrate diet (NO alcohol, grains, fruits, dairy, starchy vegetables etc) except:

Artichokes, avocado (1 a day), asparagus, aubergine, bamboo shoots, beetroot greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, raw carrots, celery, chard, collards, courgette, cucumber, fennel, green beans, kale, lettuce leaves (all types), mushrooms, olives (3 a day), onions, parsley, peas, peppers, radishes, sauerkraut, spinach, tomatoes, turnips, water chestnuts and watercress.

You can eat as much of these fibrous carbohydrates a day as you can as they are in low carbohydrate content, high in fibre, rich in vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients and they cause only a little insulin to be released.

Aim to eat 4-5 servings a day of these vegetables (yes that includes breakfast). Fibrous carbohydrates DO NOT include any grains, breads or starches only the vegetables on the list above.

You can also eat:

2 eggs a day
2-3 servings a day of nuts or 2 tablespoons of nut butter
Lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, horseradish and pickles.
Ginger, garlic, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, turmeric, basil, thyme, oregano, black pepper, sage, cardamom etc
Butter, olive oil, walnut, avocado and sesame oil.

Heres an example for a 75 kg male

Breakfast: 7am
100g salmon, 6-10 nuts, black coffee and water.

Mid morning snack: 10am
Large Romaine lettuce leaves, 50g of sliced beef, horseradish crepes.

Lunch: 1pm
170g chicken breast with mixed leaf salad, tomato, avocado, radishes and 1 tbsp olive oil.

Mid afternoon snack: 3:30pm
Crudits of carrot, pepper and courgette with 50g of prawns

Dinner: 7pm
150g steak, steamed broccoli, cauliflower and a small slice of butter to season the vegetables

Beverages
1.5 l of water throughout the day
2 cups of green tea
NO ALCOHOL

Supplements
HCL every meal
2-3 g of fish oil every meal
Multivitamin and mineral 1 a day

  4. QUESTION:
    Supplementing the dangers: What are the Dangers due to the use of Nutritional Supplements?
    Supplements are categorized as food products and must clearly state on their packaging all the ingredients and their amounts.

    Apart from excessive overdosing, which with any foodstuff or drink, however harmless, can cause problems that can be fatal, there seems no hard evidence to suggest that pharmaceutical grade supplements approved by the USFDA can be dangerous

    A number of herbal supplements are recognized to have side effects in some individuals but then even Aspirin, regularly prescribed to thin the blood to avoid strokes, can be a cause of stomach ulcers.

    Example of a food supplement: Nutrilite

    • ANSWER:
      Food supplements that contain herbs can have undesirable effects. Most reliable manufactures of supplements will have a Warning stating to check with a medical professional before taking the product. ie: if you are taking prescribed pain medication, you may be advised not to take ginseng. Ginseng raises blood pressure.
      The new craze, krill oil is very beneficial for overall health. A doctor’s web site states that krill should not be taken with any aspirin based products, however. Because krill is excellent for heart, brain, joint health, etc., it can act as a blood thinner taken with aspirin based products. I was also given that information at the VA in Connecticut.
      Most food supplememts free of herbs are generally safe.

  5. QUESTION:
    Please tell me if you have used Apple Cider Vinegar tablets for weight loss and your opinion. Thanks?
    Quite by accident I ran across an article about Apple Cider Vinegar being used for weight loss. Because it’s a natural supplement I wanted to know from people who have used the tablets. Did it help or not. I’m not expecting a miracle but if it would help my dieting efforts, I’d be willing to give it a try. Thanks ahead for any help you can give me…… Rocket

    • ANSWER:

      While looking to shed some pounds myself one day, I saw this article written by a doctor who identified a multitude of specific species of “parasites” living inside nearly 99.964% of all people’s small and large intestines in the US alone, and about 92.36% of people on average worldwide.

      These parasites excrete a jelly-like “SLUDGE”, they take a CRAP inside YOU, that coats your insides and which is very, harmful and extremely TOXIC!

      Additionally, they often steal your nutrition which in turn causes your body to believe it’s starving, and as a defense you continue to get FATTER and FATTER!

      These parasites usually end up dying (but not before laying eggs!) — and once they die they fossilize forming a coral-like barrier preventing your even further from absorbing the correct amounts of proper nutrition.

      When these parasites are FLUSHED from your guts, you end up magically losing tons of fat and extra weight – and even WITHOUT making one slight change to your diet or how much you eat!

      SHOCKINGLY, these same “little critters” actually release chemical “messengers” that make you crave foods that you are not even supposed to eat at all!

      People who get rid of the parasites, therefore, suddenly find that they no longer even desire the Cheetos, pork rinds, jelly-filled treats, and 10,000′s of other equally deadly so-called “foods.”

      I would just say go to their website and decide I use http://urlsnub.com/vo. They have a FREE trial… it’s worth looking into for FREE. I have more energy and feel great.

  6. QUESTION:
    Digestion and weight loss…(experts only please–no “hypothesizing”:))?
    Hi everyone,

    I’m constantly reading these conflicting(?) articles on weight management and digestion. Some advertisements sing the praises of this or that food/supplement/ingredient, saying it “aids digestion” and thereby helps promote weight loss. Many health articles give us list of foods which are easily digested “making the nutrients more absorbably/accessible.”

    But…the low-glycemic diet plan is all about SLOWING digestion, isn’t it? And eating foods that aren’t so quickly and readily absorbable. In fact, it teaches that the harder your body has to work to “get” at a food/nutrient, the better the food is.

    Then there are even foods out there that function as natural “carb blockers” or “fat blockers,” preventing/decreasing our bodies’ absorption of certain fats and carbs.

    But…then there are enzymes we’re supposed to take to help us absorb nutrients more effectively!

    What am I missing??? Help!

    Thanks for your feedback! :0)
    EDIT: just browsing and need a laugh? Check out answer #6. Guess the poor guy used up all his wit on his username…
    EDIT #1, continued:
    …and his edit. Note the unintentional irony.

    EDIT #2: He’s right about one thing, though: apparently, this site is not the place to find an answer. Again, the question is about digestion and weight loss, not “general health and diet tips.” I appreciate the feedback, but please limit comments to the actual topic.

    • ANSWER:
      Your first mistake is getting your information from advertisements. The companies that buy advertisements have only one interest – to make money. It doesn’t matter if their product doesn’t work or not as long as too many people don’t die, and even if people die, their team of lawyers will find a way to put the fault on the user and not the product itself. How often do you read the fine print?

      “Health” articles in most mass media outlets are also poor. They are typically written by “journalists” who are science-illiterate.

      The low GI diet is not about slowing digestion. It is about regulating blood sugar levels. I don’t know where you got this “your body has to work to get a nutrient” idea from, but it is incorrect.

      If you want good health and nutrition information, read university level nutrition textbooks and articles from scientific journals that use peer reviewing as a method of quality control.

  7. QUESTION:
    I want to lose weight & build muscle, question about anabolic & catabolic states, and protein suppliments?
    I’ve started really concentrating on exersize & I want to do it right. From what I can tell the body can only build when in an anabolic state, and can only shrink when in a catabolic state, correct?

    Some articles say that you should build muscle and lose weight at the same time. They advice a high calorie hi protein diet, heavy weight lifting and aerobic excersize.

    Others say that since your body can only effectively do one or the other, you should concentrate. to first focus on weight loss with a low calorie diet, lots of aerobic excersize, and weight lifting to maintain muscle mass and develop lean muscles, then once you are where you want to be weight wise, switch to the high calorie high protein diet to build muscle.

    Any advice on which routine would be best?

    Question two: if the latter routine is best, should protein supplements (I have one called muscle milk) be taken during the weight loss period, or should I put that off until the bulk up period? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      basically you can bulk (add muscles mass) and cut (trim fat) all in one but it is recommended you do one first then the other for best results. If you want to bulk first, buy protein powder and have 1 scoop in the morning and 1 straight after workout. Eat 8 meals a day, 1 every 3 hours. Consume 2g of both protein and carbs to 1 lb bodyweight.
      If you want to cut first, buy protein powder, have 1 scoop in the morning and 1 straight after workout. Eat 3 meals a day, consume 1-1.5g of protein and less than 1g of carbs per lb of bodyweight.
      As for routines regardless of whether you bulk or cut either do a strength (5×5 routine) or a size (3×8 hypertrophy routine) split over 4 days as – Chest/Tri’s, Back/Bi’s, Traps/Delts, Legs. Do abs on all your days off, along with cardio (do abs first though). Do more cardio if you are cutting, as you must use up more calories than you are eating.
      Save muscles milk for when bulking because you will see better results that way, I’m not sure what this product is but if it contains lots of protein, try drinking 34g in the morning and straight after workout to top up protein levels, or just buy protein powder and have single scoop shakes (get chocolate flavoured).

  8. QUESTION:
    The weight loss issue?
    Been reading up on this diet supplement called phen357. I don’t know how many of these stupid pills I’ve taken in the last two years or so & yeah some might call me lazy talk about how I don’t want to exercise, & yes you’re right I’m lazy as fuckk when it comes to that & I love food. The reason why this product caught my eye is I use to take these pills a friend of mine had called phentermine. She was very overweight from having children and luckily found a doc to perscribe her those amazing pills. Took them for maybe a month and a half & had amazing results I have no idea how much I lost but I do know I went down two pants sizes. She ended up moving and of course took her prescription with her lol & everytime I see a doc I try to get around to asking about those pills and haven’t found one that would say yes. I’ve been told they’re very dangerous because the weight comes off so quickly but in the phen357 article they mentioned about phentermin hence the name phen357 so I figured I might have finally got the jackpot if anyone knows anything about this diet product i’d really like to know more.

  9. QUESTION:
    cayenne pepper metabolism tablets, or one a day weight loss?
    my mom gave me these two bottles of vitamins for help in weight loss. i was just reading up on them, but one article said to not eat anything for 10 days and only take cayenne pepper tablets and drink lemonade? i could never do that, so if that’s the only way for those to work i’m not going to even try them.
    the other ones i have are equate weight conscious. those dont sound as beneficial or helpful as the cayenne pepper tablets do, but if they help you lose weight faster then i would do it.

    i work out 3-5 times a week and the days i dont work out i clean my house which is an equivalent to working out for me.
    i try to eat healthy, being that i am on a budget, i sometimes just have to eat whatever is in the fridge. i buy healthy groceries when i go shopping, and then when they spoil or run out i just dont have the money to spend on all the healthier stuff, so basically.
    i am asking, given my healthy-ish diet, and the fact that i work out on a regular basis, what pill would suit me best?
    not to mention i am also on zoloft, i dont think natural supplements will do anything with that, but i just want to make sure (i take 100mg) frankly the cayenne one sounds good to me in my opinion but if i have to drink lemonade for 10 days i KNOW i wouldnt be able to do that…..

    any help would be appreciated. i just keep trying and trying and trying and it comes off… slowly… veeeeeeeerrry slowly. i just want something that will give me a little more of a kick, so im actually benefitting from the process.

    • ANSWER:
      Oh honey. Please do me a favour and throw the word diet out of your vocabulary. Fit people don’t take diet pills. Fit people don’t starve themselves. Fit people don’t try to find a quick fix for their bodies.

      Here is the plan. Find your daily caloric requirements by checking Ehow. They won’t sell you anything. Then check that old food guide you learned about in school and start making healthy meal choices. Your mom can join you in this effort. Then continue to be active and even try to go for an every day activity that lasts about an hour, on top of your formal exercise program. Walking is a great idea and your mom can join you.

      Good luck. Stay off the dumb diet sites. Learn about your body and what it takes to be a fit, powerful woman.

  10. QUESTION:
    How to prevent the loss of muscle mass while cutting calories?
    No, I’m not starving myself. I’m on a healthy weight loss diet, and I’m looking to shed about 20 pounds of fat. However, I don’t want to lose muscle, nor would I mind gaining a couple of pounds of muscle.

    My understanding of how the body burns calories is that it burns mostly fat, and a small amount of muscle, until the point where the person’s weight gets dangerously low and all it has left to burn is muscle and tissue. I’m not planning on getting to a dangerously low weight, but I’d like to avoid as much muscle loss as possible.

    If I take a protein supplement and add more strength training to my workouts, would it help with this at all?

    Please only respond if you actually know what you’re talking about and aren’t just some kid who read and article on weight loss and thinks they’re an expert now.

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest committing yourself to a diet consisting of high protein, fruits and vegetables, and complex carbohydrates in moderation. I would also recommend a multi-vitamin. For protein I would suggest tuna, sole, cod, tilapia, shrimp; these forms of sea food are a fantastic source of protein that are surprisingly low in calories. Also, a protein supplement as you had mentioned can be very important; personally I would recommend Optimum Nutrition’s 100% Gold Standard Whey, or Allmax Nutrition’s IsoFlex, both almost 90% protein powder, with around 100 calories per serving, and basically no fat or carbohydrates. Your body needs protein every 3 hours to be sufficiently nourished and deterred from going to the “hard earned muscle tissue buffet” if you will. Try to eat consistently throughout the day, quenching your body’s need for protein, while balancing this with your fruits, vegetables, and complex carbs. Whey protein is quickly absorbed and is perfect for when you need some muscle fuel during the day, although if you’re really keen on not sparing any muscle tissue, you can even try casien protein which is a slowly absorbed form of protein. Casein protein is best taken at night time, so that your muscles have food during the hours you are basically not eating. For this I would recommend Optimum Nutrition’s 100% Gold Standard Casein Protein. You can also try taking a mineral called “chromium picolinate” which helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Studies show that ingesting this trace mineral can increase fat loss and promote lean muscle gains. Pair this nutrition with a workout schedule that includes cardio and strength training, so that your muscles will become more receptive to the protein and the nutrients you are ingesting. If you are looking to tone your muscles through strength training, go with a low weight for a high number of reps, and if you are looking to increase muscle size as well as strength go with a high weight for a low number of weights. One thing I would like to add; do not be dismayed with what you see on the bathroom scale. One can lose a pound of fat, and gain a pound of muscle, so if the numbers aren’t looking to drastically different, don’t freak out or give up. Go on how you feel and/or how you look in the mirror. Good luck!

  12. QUESTION:
    Help with AP Stats Problem – Best Answer Guaranteed Selection!?
    An advertisement for a diet supplement, Looze-Now, claims that it is scientifically proven that Looze-Now will help people lose an average of 14.8 pounds in 30 days. The article further explains that a double blind test was done to compare Looze-Now with a control group. The mean weight loss of people on Looze-Now was 14.8 pounds with a standard deviation of 11.2 pounds. The mean weight loss of people in the control group was 15.1 pounds with a standard deviation 12.5 pounds. Which of the following statements is true?
    (A)Looze-Now caused people to lose weight.
    (B)The least amount of weight lost among the Looze-Now group was 3.6 pounds.
    (C)The weight loss among the Looze-Now sample was likely due to a placebo effect.
    (D)The experiment wasn’t really double blind, since the people could tell if they were losing weight.
    (E)Anyone who takes Looze-Now will experience a weight loss.

    Thanks! Will vote for Best Answer!

    • ANSWER:
      (A) Not true, because, although at least some (and possibly all) of those in the treatment group did lose weight, no causality has been shown. The weight loss could have been due to other factors.

      (B) Not true, because knowing only the mean and standard deviation of a data set of more than 2 members, tells next to nothing about the extremes of that data set.

      (C) True, because the control group lost the same amount as the treatment group, within the standard deviations of the groups.

      (D) Not true, because weight loss wasn’t one of the control variables, it was the effect. Double blind just means that neither the subjects, nor those administering the treatments, knew during the experiment, which subjects were getting the “real stuff.”

      (E) Not supported by the results of the study, as presented here, because for all we know, there were some in the treatment group who didn’t lose weight. And even if all of them lost weight, that still doesn’t mean, as more people use the product, that someone won’t gain weight, or fail to lose it.

  13. QUESTION:
    Would the Acai Berry ‘diet’ be right for me?
    I’m a 17 year old girl who is about 5’1″ and weights 128 lbs. My doctor says my BMI is okay but I still feel a like I’m treading the fine line to being ‘overweight.’

    I saw an advertisement online for the Acai Berry and ventured off to read the article. Thinking it might be one of those random weight loss pills that are not very healthy, I kept researching and found that it was actually a really good supplement. It seems like a great weight to lose weight, but I’m afraid I’ll lose too much weight. Also, I pretty sure my parents are not going to let me buy the free trial online.

    I’d like some feedback before I go any further. Do you think I should go for it and would it be good for me? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Many companies offer free trials of Acai so you can ‘try before you buy’. That’s probably the best bet. This site lists free trial offers:

  14. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of the last 10 pounds of stomach/inner thigh flab?!?
    I’m 14 years old, 5’2-3, and 110 pounds. I recently lost a lot of weight (20 pounds!) over a month and a half, and though my results sound good, I clearly have a bit too much fat on my stomach and inner upper thighs still. I would like to get rid of this before June.

    In order to lose this weight, I changed my diet multiple times, and currently I have a super-healthy, low-calorie, high-fiber diet. The only way I cheat on it ever is by eating too much of something that isn’t necessarily very healthy but still isn’t bad when eaten in portions (i.e. frozen yogurt). I know I could lose more weight if I just brought my portion sizes down at certain times, but my diet is so healthy that I just can’t help this every once in a while, so please don’t just tell me this is all I need to do.

    I hate exercising (I’m a major couch potato) but when I started my weight loss plan, I would jog in place for half an hour every day. Jogging or running regularly gives me cramps and tires my legs too much, so this seemed to work for a while as a substitute.

    I have used diet pills an supplements during my program to help me along, and they haven’t harmed me, so I’m fine with using another if it will help me.

    Recently, since I got down to 114 pounds, I started losing weight a lot slower. Now that I’m at 110, I can’t seem to lose any at all. I still need to get rid of the remaining fat to be swimsuit-slim this summer. So, what are some things that I can do to lose my remaining weight?

    Oh and I recently read an article saying that walking at a moderate pace without getting heart rate up burns more fat than doing cardio, so I started walking instead of jogging in place, since I was getting lazy with that anyway.

    I don’t want this to be anything too difficult (I’m sorry but it’s just not humanly possible to cut all salts, fats, carbs, and sugars out of my diet and run for 3 hours each day). Is there anything simple and semi-easy I can do to get the flab off by June? Please help me and please don’t tell me I’m “healthy enough” and “don’t need to look like a model” or anything because I’m not trying to look like a model, I just want confidence at the beach and to be more attractive.

    Thank you so much for your help! :)

  15. QUESTION:
    Calorie Counting and Fats, help!?
    I’m on a vegetarian diet and I count my calories and try to keep the ‘suggested’ amounts of fat/carbs/etc in a 2000 calorie diet (well, I actually eat a bit less than 2000 calories) … In the past, due to the suggestions of a nutritionist and a personal trainer (combined with personal research), I included coconut oil in my diet (mixing with drinks or taken plain) and want to include it in my diet again. As a health supplement, it is suggested to eat 3 – 4 tablespoons of coconut oil. Each tablespoon contains 14g of fat (22% of the suggested daily fat intake). Since I’m taking the oil as a type of supplement, should it be counted towards my daily total of 65g of fat? Other articles say that the calories can be ignored because of how the body reacts to the oil, but they don’t mention anything about the fat. So, should I discount the fat as well since it is a ‘healthy’ fat ‘supplement’ that is meant to help with weight loss, digestion and other overall good health?

    • ANSWER:
      I believe it’s quite the opposite. A calorie is a calorie. Fat however, is not the same. If the coconut oil brings your fat intake a little higher then you want it to be it’s ok. it’s good fat. Now remember, to much good fat is still bad, but you’re ok. Personally though I’d review your diet and try to eliminate a little of that fat if your trying to lose weight especially if alot of it’s saturated. If you’re trying to just eat healthy and maintain your current weight you are FINE.

  16. QUESTION:
    I want to lose weight & build muscle, question about anabolic & catabolic states, and protein suppliments?
    I’ve started really concentrating on exersize & I want to do it right. From what I can tell the body can only build when in an anabolic state, and can only shrink when in a catabolic state, correct?

    Some articles say that you should build muscle and lose weight at the same time. They advice a high calorie hi protein diet, heavy weight lifting and aerobic excersize.

    Others say that since your body can only effectively do one or the other, you should concentrate. to first focus on weight loss with a low calorie diet, lots of aerobic excersize, and weight lifting to maintain muscle mass and develop lean muscles, then once you are where you want to be weight wise, switch to the high calorie high protein diet to build muscle.

    Any advice on which routine would be best?

    Question two: if the latter routine is best, should protein supplements (I have one called muscle milk) be taken during the weight loss period, or should I put that off until the bulk up period? Thanks.
    Actually your body can’t turn fat into muscle, it can only make new muscle out of new calories and protein coming it.

    • ANSWER:
      if you are a newbie to resistance training you will most likely see a simultaneous increase of muscle mass with a decrease in the body fat “if” your diet is sound.

      for now I would focus on learning the mechanics of compound exercises, they are the key to building mass. for the tone of your post it seems that you are wanted to make the most out of your training which is a good thing. pick up any book by Tudor Bompa on Periodization you will learn a ton about how to properly design a training program.

      regarding the muscle milk. take it after training and before bed. also pick up some hand calipers to start tracking your body fat %. use macros close to 40% protein, 40% carbs and 20% fats.


Diet Weight Loss Supplements

Weight loss supplements are a most helpful addition to your overall diet plan. They can help to provide both a psychological and a physical boost toward making a successful diet plan.

Weight loss supplements come in various types and, as might be expected, some are much more effective than others. The wrong type of supplements can actually be harmful to persons with certain pre-existing conditions. The government in this country provides continuous testing of new products to aid in combating the scourge of obesity which is more and more prevalent amongst children, adolescents and adults. Some supplements are available through a doctor’s prescription while a few are readily available on the shelves of your local pharmacy or supermarket. These supplements have some uses, particularly if you are shaky in your resolve to lose the weight necessary to bring you to your goal.

Psychological Boost

For those who need every bit of will power they posses to get through the most difficult days of the early diet plan, weight loss supplements provide a psychological boost. Because you are in a success mind set, you expect to be successful. Since you expect that these supplements will provide the difference between success and failure in a better eating plan, you are less likely to give up in discouragement when the initial water weight loss slows to a crawl. In addition, since there are some actual psychical effects to the circulation and the brain, you simply feel better because of the increased health benefits.

Metabolism increase

Weight loss supplements are often directed toward increasing the metabolic rate of your body so that the glucose is burned more effectively rather than being stored in the body and becoming the dreaded fat residues around hips, thighs and abdomen. When the fuel is burned, rather than stored for future use, the body will not retain the weight. As we grow older, the metabolic rate tends to drop anyway, so improving the level of metabolism helps to keep weight off as the age increases.

Burn fat

Of course, one of the primary results of weight loss supplements is their ability to burn fat. You want to get rid of the fat cells in your body, to use these stored cells as fuel rather than seeing the results of stored fat on your body profile. Taking advantage of the ability of the supplements to affect the body processes in a positive way makes it easier to be sure that your weight management efforts will be successful. So, the psychological boost goes along with the physical changes in order to help you reach your weight loss goal.

When you select weight loss supplements, it is largely to add every possible success factor to your diet and weight control efforts. Supplements help to provide nutrition to your body during weight loss. Supplements can help to increase your metabolism so that the energy expenditure of the body is increase significantly just in the activities of daily living. Supplements can produce a feeling of fullness or even satiety so that you will not be tempted to eat as much. Take advantage of the benefits in order to kick start your weight management efforts and to continue them over the long haul.

    • ANSWER:
      better ask it to some doctor!
      and if you really want to lose wight and fat then you should remember and do this:

      EVERYDAY RUN (WALK) + L-Carnitine + TAKE LESS CALORIES + LIPO-6 = 100% SUCCESS

      1) if you dint have then buy scales!!! that is the first thing to do!!

      2) run every 2 days for at least ~30 minutes or/and walk every day at least 5 km!

      3) L-Carnitine!!!

      L-Carnitine is a nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy. It is produced by the body in the liver and kidneys and stored in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, and sperm. Usually, the body can make all the carnitine it needs. Some people, however, may be deficient in carnitine because their bodies cannot make enough carnitine or transport it into tissues so it can be used. Some other conditions, such as angina or intermittent claudication, can also cause insufficient carnitine in the body, as can some medications.L-Carnitine is made in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. It increases the use of fat as an energy source by transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are ‘burned’ to release energy for body functions. It is available in several different forms including propionyl-L-carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine. Propionyl-L-carnitine, through its enhancement of metabolism has been proven to prevent ischemia-induced heart dysfunction, and acetyl-L-carnitine has been suggested to delay the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. L-carnitine is found naturally in avocados, breast milk, dairy products, red meats (namely lamb and beef), and tempeh (fermented soybean product).

      L-carnitine should be taken one hour before you will exercise! (Also you can take L-carnitine with meals or 1 to 1-1/2 hours after meals!)

      L-Carnitine boosts energy by stimulating the body’s burning of tryglycerides as fuel, and sparing the supply of glycogen stored in the liver for heavier exertion. During exercise, the body will burn fat at a rate of 75-80% of maximum exertion, thus less glycogen from carbohydrates is burned. L-carnitine
      allows the body to burn more fat, save more glycogen, and ultimately boost stamina and endurance. By providing more fat to the muscles, carnitine makes accessible an otherwise unavailable energy source.

      FAT + OXYGEN + L-CARNITINE = ENERGY

      5) you MUST change your diet!! start to use products with less fat, less carbohydrates! start count your calories! do not eat more than ~2000 per day and if you feel that you can reduce this number then do it!

      because if you will use L-Carnitine – you will get calories from your body fat too!! so better is to eat 2kg fruits then 1 cheeseburger…
      and drink more and more water!! REMEMBER – NO rice, NO pasta, NO pork, NO mayonnaise, NO sweets, NO candies, NO alcohol!!!!!
      MORE fruits, vegetables!!!

      6) also you should use some fat-burner! I had tried many of them but only one worked for me as fast as I wanted to! it was Lipo-6! I lost ~80 pounds in 3 months! No starvation!! only LESS CALORIES + Lipo-6 + L-Carnitine + EVERYDAY RUN (WALK) = SUCCESS!!!

      I do not know if any store carry Lipo-6 but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.healthbuy.com/product/overview/lipo6_weight_loss/?aid=749165

      It worked for me and my wife!

      and this method is working for my friends too!!

      just try it and I guarantee you 100% that you will lose wight!!!

      good luck!!!

    like acai berry, hydroxycut etc…

    ive been kinda “fighting ” with my weight for over a year
    it started last year when i broke my neck and i was out of school for like almost 9-10 months

    i was a little depressed then so i lookd for comfort in food and i gain like 50-60 pounds
    i was 260 now im 210

    it took me over 7 months to lose that weight now i feel a lot better but i have had it enough with all those diets

    im 18 im 5’8 and as i said i weight 210 i would like to lose at least like 10-15 pounds more and i had enough of those diets
    im not a sporty/athletic kind of person i mean i like playing badminton and rollerblading but now in winter theres nothing to do

    i walk a lot

    so are those diest pills/supplements really good
    i mean from all those commercials it looks like its working or is it just brainwashing the people ??

    • ANSWER:
      It is brainwashing the masses! so NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I would not take them!

      Most over the counter weight loss drugs may suppress hunger and increase your metabolism; however, this only works while you are on them! Once you stop taking them, your weight will start to increase! THEREFORE, they do not equal weight loss!!!!!!! In addiction, those weight loss pills can become addictive!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Furthermore, they can cause serious health problems!!!!! For example, until like really recently ephedra was used in many weight loss drugs! In fact, Steve Bechler is a good example of this! He died after using weight loss drugs!

      Okay, let us say you are talking about like Stackers, Mini Thins, and Fat burners. You are probably thinking oh but this must be safe because they are “natural” WRONG!!! These things can be even more dangerous/deadly than prescription meds. because they aren’t inspected for purity and accuracy of contents, as well as potency of the ingredients.

      The FDA has limited power to regulate these “diet supplements ect…”

      Okay if these isn’t convincing enough:
      The dietary supplements can cause/are linked to strokes, heart attacks, hepatitis, headaches, anxiety, insominia…

      Other supplements have caused kidney damage, renal failure, kidney cancer..

      If that still isn’t convincing enough, which I really really hope it is, those dietary supplements haven’t been proven to effective in helping to lose weight!

      Well, I could go on and on!

      The point is, if you really want to lose weight and keep it off, the only true way is through eating healthy (limiting calories, limiting saturated and trans fats, ect…) and exercise!

      There are a lot of ways you can loss weight, which aren’t healthy, and they are not going to lead to long term weight loss! However, the only thing that will result is in temporary weight loss, and you will probably gain even more weight back than you lost! And yo-yo dieting is more dangerous for you body than actually remaining overweight!!!

      I hope that you really read this, because taking those pills is not worth it!! With the chances of getting diseases/illness/addiction, with them not really working, it isn’t worth it!!

      You say you like to walk, rollerblade, and play badminton! Participating in this activities are helping your physical fitness and are sporty too! I am sure you have a like a skating place somewhere, go there and skate! Or, you could use a gym at school.

      However, simply going for walks, playing badminto, rollerblading, and eating a healthy balanced diet will certainly help you lose weight! In addition, making sure you are not consuming more calories than you need for your activity level is key too!! Another key part to weight loss, is managing you stress level! You need to learn to cope with stress and to not let it build up!

      You can lose the weight! I know you can!! The hard part is just getting started on exercising and eating a balanced meal; however, once you start you will see improvements! However, using weight loss drugs is not going to help you; it will only lead to disappointment!

      You can do it the healthy way! I know you can; I have 100% faith in you!

      As John N commented you should only lose one to two pounds a week!! Listen to John N!!

      I just do not want to see you developing an illness from these drugs!

  9. QUESTION:
    Has anyone experienced with diets or weight loss supplements?
    Does anyone know of any diets or weight loss supplements that have worked for them?

    • ANSWER:
      Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, squats, brisk walking and power walking all help for weight loss but dieting helps more.

      One of the healthiest weight loss diets is the DASH diet.

      The healthy DASH diet can help you lose weight safely and effectively, lower your cholesterol and lower your blood pressure.

      It is based on an eating plan rich in fruits and vegetables, and low-fat or non-fat dairy, with whole grains. It is a high fiber, low to moderate fat diet, and is rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

      You can see further details in a web search for “dash diet” + “lose weight”.

  12. QUESTION:
    What is a Good Weight Loss Supplement to use with Diet?
    I am getting married in 6 weeks and would like to add a weight loss supplement to my diet and exercise routine. I follow a low-fat, low-calorie, high fiber diet (ie weight watchers) and exercise throughout the week. I see commercials for all different pills, but not sure which one would be good for me. I just want to maximize my weight loss in the weeks before my wedding. Ultimately, I would like to lose 10 lbs, please let me know what I can use to help accomplish this.

    • ANSWER:
      There are two all natural weight loss supplements that are safe and have no side effects. They are Cha de Bugre and Hoodia Gordonii.

      Cha de Bugre, is a new supplement that is growing in popularity and is similar to Ma Huang (Ephedrine) without any of the bad effects. Cha de Bugre is from Brazil and has been used there safely for centuries. Cha de Bugre provides energy, fat burning and appetite suppression that benefit weight loss. Cha de Bugre also has additional uses that are known in Brazil that include being used as a mild diuretic, a cellulite reducer, aides in reducing herpes simplex outbreaks and a heart tonic. You can find more about it at http://hoodiagordonii.totalink.com/cha_de_bugre.html

      Hoodia Gordonii is a natural appetite suppressant derived from a South African cactus that the bushmen have eaten there for thousands of years. You need to make sure you get a strong pure hoodia that is certified to be genuine. Check out Totalink’s unbiased Hoodia comparison at http://hoodiagordonii.totalink.com/hoodia_comparison.html in the “Confidence” column it will indicate if the brand is “Certified”. These Hoodia brands have the credentials to back up their product. Also in that column it will indicate if the brand is “Returnable”. These Hoodia brands allow you to return opened bottles and get your money back. I think this indicates that a company has confidence in their product that it works.

      Keep in mind that Hoodia Gordonii alone provides appetite suppression but not fat burning. Cha de Bugre is a fat burner but not as good as hoodia with appetite suppression. There are also brands that mix Cha de Bugre with Hoodia Gordonii and other weight loss herbs like Green Tea that can increase both fat burning and appetite suppression.

      I have written a lot of articles on Hoodia. Just search Yahoo or Google under my name “Andrew Aitaken” to find them.

      Remember, you should always consult your physician before taking any diet pill or weight loss supplement.

  13. QUESTION:
    What are some safe weight loss supplements that can be used with diet and exercise?
    I’m not looking for a magic pill that miraculously makes me lose weight. I am looking for something I can take along with diet and exercising that maybe can speed up the process or produce more results. Most importantly it should be safe, but also if possible, natural. I’m looking to lose around 15-20 pounds, just some weight I gained over summer. Please let me know any good recommendations, especially if you have tried it yourself.

    • ANSWER:
      You can try the following,

      *) Green Tea before workout to crank up your metabolism.
      *) L – Carnitine -> This helps in moving the hard fats to mitochondria and converts them to energy
      *) Fish oil -> Can be useful for skin and cardio
      *) Multivitamin -> Assuming that you are on a diet.
      *) I take Glucosamine sulphate for joint cartillages

      hope it helps

  14. QUESTION:
    Diet and Exercise weight loss supplements??
    Has anyone used weight loss supplements such as Exenadrine EFX, Hydroxy cut, ect.? Do they really help you lose weight (combined with diet and exercise?)
    I am aware that diet changes and exercise are the primary ways to lose weight and I am doing that… the QUESTION is do the supplements help…. thank you…

    • ANSWER:
      I did and they gave me more energy, but they’re expensive and made me shaky. I used regular dexitrim with green tee and it worked better for me and was cheaper. Try that out befor you make a big investiment. I dont know where you shop for at walmart for example, there a “womens type” diet pill section and a body building section (very close, but not the same) in the more mens body building section they had “Hot ROx” Its great for cutting fat, but you must work out with it. Try the dexitrim at first to get your cravigs down after you switch your diet, then switch after two weeks. It workd for me and i lost 40lbs!!! Good luck I recomend slowly adding exercise, so slight cardio three times a week. I warmed up on the treadmill for 5 then did a fast walk for 15 then cooled down. Make sure you have an elevated heart rate but can still speek a sentance….. after this for two weeks you’ll feel much better then will be able to kick it up to maybe weights and more cardio buy then you’ll be on the new pill. GOod luck

  15. QUESTION:
    Can you recommend some good diet pills or diet supplements to speed up weight loss?
    I am looking for a safe, over the counter product that I can buy at a local drugstore. Please include any successes you have had if you tried the pills and or supplements.
    I do cardio workouts three times a week, as well as weight lifting.
    Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      I have been through it all and know what’s it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can’t be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I’ve worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

      Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

      First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can’t eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising…

      This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it’s good for the heart.

      However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It’s so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I’ve found a great addition to help any one out, it’s a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don’t get all crazy on me and say diet pills don’t work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn’t meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It’s an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace.com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it’s the best pill I’ve tried and I’ve tried cupboards full. Now this doesn’t mean you have to follow my foot steps but I’ve successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

      Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

  16. QUESTION:
    Weight Loss Supplements in addition to my exercise/diet routine?
    I have been going consistently to the gym for about 8 months now.
    Past 1 and a half months I have been taking it more seriously.
    Right when I wake up I do 40 min on eliptical.
    Before dinner time I go do 45 min of weights and then 25 min on eliptical. I do this 5-6 days a week.
    I weight 313 pounds (was 340 lbs 7 months ago).
    Male
    22 years old
    72 inches tall
    body fat is 33%

    Yes I am on a diet; no fast food, fried food, wings, ribs, burgers, pizza, etc. And I take in ~200 grams of protein a day and eating under my daily value of carbs.
    I am trying to build/tone and lose weight simulatenously.
    I keep each muscle group workout 3 days off of each other

    I want to know if there are any relatively SAFE weight loss supplements that could aid in the fat loss process.
    I realize that losing weight 1-2 lbs a week is healthy but I need a little boost, some motivation. I am NOT looking for a long term supplement, just something to help for a couple weeks or so. I really want to get under 300 asap

    • ANSWER:
      try Lipo-6, it gave me good results when I had a plateau

  17. QUESTION:
    Can you take weight loss supplements and muscle building supplements in the same diet?
    or by taking both are you deafeating the point of them ?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes you can take both.
      For best results, eat six times a day. Try balancing your meals 70% protein 30% carbs.

      Eat a combination of lean protein and healthy carbohydrates every few hours throughout the day to speed up fat loss and maintain stable energy levels.
      Eat your proteins from lean sources (Chicken, fish, boiled eggs, lean beef with all the fat drained off) and beans (lentil, lima, chile or any type of bean)

      For your carbs stay away from breads, pasta and rice. They do provide energy but they are high in calories. Choose leafy vegetables, carrots, raisins, broccoli and fresh fruits. Weight train intensely, three times per week on alternating days with aerobic exercise three times per week.

      Drink 10 to 20 glasses water per day NO SODA
      Good Luck !!!

      Eat Right and do Cardio (jogging, aerobics or bike riding 30minutes per day) to burn fat.

      Lift weights to gain Muscle

  19. QUESTION:
    Best diet pill/weight loss supplement out there?
    I work out 5-6 days a week and eat a very clean, healthy diet 6 days of the week (my 7th is a cheat day, but i don’t go too crazy or stuff myself). I’ve been doing this for months now and have lost weight but I’ve hit a plateau. I’d like to lose around 3-5 more pounds. Is there any diet pill (hate to utter those words) or supplement on the market that can aid in weight loss or fat reduction? I took CLA for a while and found it toned me up a little, buI was wondering if there is anything else that works. I’d prefer something without caffeine, as I am sensitive to it. Like I said, I dont have much weight to lose, just want to get rid of those couple extra pounds and get leaner. Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      I think the others are right, why spend money to lose just a couple of more pounds. Have a look at this iste, there is a tips section that could probably help you lose that last little bit.

  20. QUESTION:
    Do weight loss supplements and diets work?
    Do the advertised pills, drops, diet programs like jenny craig actually work? I am trying to lose weight and the simple way..by cardio and eating a bit less but just out of curiosity wanna know if it is healthy to try the afore mentioned things and if they really do work or just make u feel good for some time till u regain all ur weight

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like you’re doing it right.

      Most pills and programs will have disclaimers in the advertising saying “Results not typical” or “With diet and exercise” for a reason. If you need help controlling your portions something like Jenny Craig or WeightWatchers can be helpful, especially with guidance keeping your intake well balanced and with moral support, but it all comes down to reducing (or modifying) what you eat and being more active.

      It can take a while and you will hit walls and plateaus, but keep at it!

      If you do decide you need additional help (pills or drops) I’d ask your doctor and steer clear of people who point to the same web site (designed, of course, to sell you crap) for just about every answer they give.

  21. QUESTION:
    Best diet supplements for quick healthy weight loss?
    i have till march 11 to go from being 5’6 and 174lbs to atleast 150lbs. please!!
    also, i dont have a lot of free time considering i have a 2 year old and work full time.

    • ANSWER:
      No diet supplement will let you lose that, sorry. 24lbs are hard to shed, and you need at least 3 months if not more. I hate to be the barer of bad news, but its the truth.
      Dietary supplements are risky, and can often lead to blurred vision, headaches, hair loss, liver damage, numbness in the hands and difficulty walking. It can cause calcium deposits to build up, which can interfere with muscle function, including the heart muscle. These are only a few side affects. What I suggest is seeing a dietitian and establishing a diet plan. Drink plenty of water, cut out carbs, saturated fats, artificial sugars and full fat dairy. Exercise an hour a day, every day. You may lose 2lbs by March 11 if you are strict and specific.

  22. QUESTION:
    Is it possible for to keep the weight off after using diet supplements?
    If someone was to take a weight loss supplement (e.g. hydroxycut, alli), lose the weight they wanted, and then stopped using the supplement, would they gain all of the weight back? Would maintaining a healthy lifestyle afterward keep the weight off?

    • ANSWER:
      95% of the people that attempt fad diet or diet pill weight loss fail and many end up heavier.
      (Source – CDC)
      You may lose some weight but once you start eating a regular diet (whatever that is these days) the pounds will go right back on.
      The only permanent solution is slow healthy weight loss and a lifestyle change away from processed foods and towards a whole foods diet. Any diet that excludes foods from any food group will ultimately fail.
      Finally, check the fine print on any “diet pill”. You will read that statements made are not approved by the FDA. Alli is the ONLY approved over the counter weight loss supplement.

  23. QUESTION:
    Body-Building: If i go on a low carb high protein diet with a weight loss supplement?
    For 52 days do you think i will be ripped if i do cardio daily with small sets of heavy weights. I’m 5’7, 20yr and 160 pounds but big build. Or would i just lose muscle mass and lose lot’s of weight. I’m medical marijuana smoker so the fat loss supplement won’t suppress my appetite thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      If you’re doing low carb/ high protein, make sure you’re getting your protein from generally fatty sources (if you eat chicken, eating something with it that has a good source of Omega 3′s, like an avocado).

      I’d recommend looking at the guidelines of the paleo diet. When I started, I dropped from 197 to 188 in about a month. Slowly, my weight increased up to around 194, where is stayed for several months (roughly losing about the same amount of fat as muscle gained). Right now, I’m back up to 197, with a lot more muscle mass and a lot less fat… and I’m still getting stronger.

      Also, knock the medical marijuana crap out. You’re 20, you don’t need that stuff… and it’s going to limit your gains.

  24. QUESTION:
    Is Promax Diet the best weight loss supplement and also what the best flavour?

      Also, high quality whey proteins, which are vital for post exercise recovery, and also help to diet by cuasing you to feel fuller for longer.

  25. QUESTION:
    Do weight-loss supplements make you lose fat all over your body? How does it work exactly?
    I want to lose weight without losing certain aspects of my body, such as my breasts and behind. I just want to lose the stubborn belly fat. I regularly exercise and eat right. Which diet supplements would fulfill this?
    oh, and I don’t want to lose mass amounts of weight. I’m only looking to lose 10 pounds. I know if you lose like, 25+ then your breasts would shrink. I’m wondering about smaller-scale weight loss

    • ANSWER:

      All you need to lose weight is a good healthy diet and exercise – it takes time :)

  31. QUESTION:
    short cuts in weight loss/diet pills/exercise/supplements, what am i doing wrong, what more can i do? ?
    i was fat, now I’m much less fat; only a few pounds over weight, between 7 and 15 depending on the week

    i’m 18, i train at a mma gym twice a week, and go for half hour+ run-walks 3 times a week

    during the mma training on Monday & Wednesday i go from 6 – 9 pm, with 1 kick boxing class and one Pankration (wrestling / Brazilian jujitsu / full contact ring fighting ) class

    this gym is not some sissy bow 30 times over the course of the night, do 10 push ups 10 high kicks and go home gym, its the gym that has produce 3 provincial boxing and mma champs, and you can feel the intensity of the work out

    before each of those sessions i take 2 scoops of no-xplode by bsn, it keeps me awake for a few hours after that (don’t get to sleep before about 3am) but the additionally endurance is measurable. and worth it for me
    right after i get home and shower i have a protein shake, and a hour later a creatine drink

    my diet is not super complex, i try to follow the creed “eat food, not to much, mostly veggies” or at least i try to,
    i eat very little red meat, and no wheat at all, grains come from brown rice, rice-milk and rice cakes

    only recently started the run-walks which go for 30 min + (47 today) and im starting with 1 min of running and 2 min of walking, i have a guide to tell me when and how to change it over the next 14 weeks

    my goals are simply “get in better shape”
    i want to be able to move, look good, feel healthy, my actions are working but there doing so very slowly so, if anyone has any educated (formal or from experience based) advice on how i can improve my health from training times, workout styles, supplement advice (are diet pills like atro-phex for me?) or anything someone has i would love to hear it

    • ANSWER:
      Hey there,

      I’ve tried just about every diet pill under the sun, and I can tell you that the only things I’ve ever had success with were natural supplements like acai berry. I tried a lot of the products like Hydroxycut, but they only made me dizzy and nauseous, not skinny! :) lol

      I’d recommend you check out things like acai berry or colon cleanse products that help to boost energy levels and speed up metabolism naturally. Add them to a strictly healthy diet and a lot of exercise, and you should start to see results pretty quickly. Remember – there are no miracle pills, so if you want to lose weight, you can’t just sit around on your butt all day eating pizza!

      Anyways, let me know if you have any other questions. I’d be happy to talk to you about the plan that worked for me.

  32. QUESTION:
    what diet pill/ weight loss supplement works and i can get at the drug store instead of online.?
    i want to be able to go to the store and get one instead of getting it online. Please help

    • ANSWER:
      Green Tea tablets work really well for me. My favorite is Spring Valley Green Tea 315 mg with Hoodia. It’s important to get the ones with hoodia. It really does make a huge difference. You can get them anywhere. I got mine at Walmart, though. They are cheap and work-as long as you combine them with a healthy diet and exercise. But I see a huge difference in my appetite when I take them and when I don’t. Of course, they are natural and better for you than other pills on the market. And I love tea, but these tablets work better than actually drinking green tea for me.

      I also like Mega T Green Tea Tablets. They do a pretty good job of suppressing your appetite, but what I really like is that it gives you lots of energy without making you jittery or sick or causing insomnia. I can workout out twice as long if I take those.

      I’m not sure if you would consider those actual diet pills, though. But I do know that I tried regular diet pills in the past and they left me so jittery and shaky, I couldn’t think straight. These are natural (not sure if Mega T is 100% natural though-but I have seen no bad side effects) and good for you.

  33. QUESTION:
    What’s a good diet supplement for weight loss in older women?

    • ANSWER:
      My personal opinion is that you could take Acai Berry, is being used to help people lose weight because it is able to control the appetite of its users and it also increases metabolism. When metabolism rates increase, the body is able to burn foods faster and it will also burn the fat that is already stored in the body. The body will also receive more energy with increased metabolism, allowing individuals that exercise with a more rewarding workout.
      The benefit that individuals receive when they use acai berry products is the influx of antioxidants. When a person has a diet that is high in antioxidants, they may notice that their body is better equipped to handle certain disease and sicknesses. The antioxidants help to repair cells that are damaged by the oxidation process that arises in the body. In addition, the body’s immune system is strengthened by the antioxidants.

  34. QUESTION:
    can it be really harmful to take a diet supplement for weight loss after the experation date?
    The pill i am reffering to is Mega-T and Slim Quick

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it is dangerous, the expiration date is on there for a reason and those things mess you up anyway.
      Don`t be silly.
      Take them to a pharmacy to be disposed of properly.

    • ANSWER:
      I have nearly always tried to keep myself in good shape. I have been into weight training for more than 40yrs. I read about diet, and fitness, experience has shown me what i consider to be the best diet programmes. I am talking about Herbalife, a company who promote, and supply the nutrition for LA Galaxy, the team David Beckham plays for. I use there products for the nutrition, and the maintenance programme, which you can follow for the rest of your life. The programmes, and products lead you to eating more healthy. My wife uses them first for weight loss, and now for maintenance, and the health benefits. This company has been around for about 28yrs, and it is sold in 70 countries. You can look at my blog if you want further information.

  36. QUESTION:
    I’m looking for a diet supplement that is really good with weight loss, any suggestions?
    I’m 17 (almost 18), so I can’t buy any of those dietary supplements that are behind the glass doors, but I want to know if anyone has some successful experience with diet/weight-loss pills to recommend for me? I have a workout plan but I really need weight-loss pills and need ones that will work (i’m not just going to take the pills, I’ll continue my daily exercises and correct eating, i’m good with that). Please help me out, I heard Acai Berry supplements were useful??

    • ANSWER:
      We should all learn something every day and hopefully you will learn this.
      There is no such thing as a diet pill, liquid, powder, or fat burner supplement!
      Got it?
      Think about it. If any of this garbage worked, why would 2/3 of the adults in the US be overweight, obese, or morbidly obese? We would be lined up without having to spend a dime advertising if someone had the magic formula.
      Alli is the only over the counter weight loss pill approved by the FDA. There are only three prescription weight loss medications approved. Do you think that if any of them REALLY worked we would have a billion a year industry in “weight loss” supplements?
      The big three pharmaceuticals would dominate the market.
      Approved or otherwise, none of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program.
      So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money?
      You will be spending somewhere between and per day on a product that is not approved or guaranteed to do anything!
      The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin.

      And yes they are dangerous. Heart, liver, kidney, intestinal, and neurological damage and death have all been the result of diet pills. That is why the FDA hasn’t approved any new ones for 14 years.
      These supplement manufacturers are using human guinea pigs (you) for these products. As long as no one gets sick or dies, and they don’t get fined or shut down they will keep making and selling this junk. Whether it works or not.

      This whole acai berry thing is a scam.
      Acai berries are high in antioxidants.
      A diet high in antioxidant foods can increase your metabolism.
      An increase in metabolism can burn more calories.
      More calories burned can result in weight loss.
      Acai berries cause weight loss!
      That is the big “stretch” these con artists are selling.
      The same stretch of the imagination applies to the green tea, maquiberry, hoodia, moyoberry, gojiberry, fruta planta, and african mango seed extract pills out there.

      I say it over and over and over. “If any one of these products really worked, why are there so many?”

      The results of 100 years of weight loss research!

      Kind of like buying a lottery ticket isn’t it?

  37. QUESTION:
    Are there any good diet supplements on the market for quick weight loss?

    • ANSWER:
      no, diet suppliments don’t work. don’t buy into the scam.

  38. QUESTION:
    What diet pill/weight loss pill/supplement/vitamin for women should I take to kick start?
    I am 21 and a female. I’m 5’4 and 139 pounds. I exercise doing 3-4 days a week cardio intervals, weight training, resistance training, stretching, and circuits. I eat very healthfully, I’ve done the eat enough calories, eat less calories, eat more calories. I’ve done the 6 small meals, I’ve done the 3 meals and 2 snacks, I’ve done every food diet possible that doesn’t involve meat(besides fish once in awhile) because I am a vegetarian. No matter what I try I cannot LOSE weight. I understand muscle weighs more than fat and to burn fat you build muscle and gain weight first, but I am not muscular nor fat so that doesn’t apply to me, and I’ve kept this steady weight over the last 2 or so years. Except last year when there was a death in the family and I dropped weight like crazy from stress and getting on a medication to deal. But, I’ve been off the meds for awhile and living a healthy lifestyle and I can’t lose it(I’m looking to be miniminally 115-120, less if possible). My BMI says I’m normal, but I don’t feel good with myself. I get that the BMI doesn’t say everything about a body, but to look at me I have a thin look with curves if that makes sense. I’m 34c/27/36. Anyways, what I’m getting at is does anyone know any supplements/pills/etc that can help me kickstart a weight loss, I’m not going to replace my lifestyle with it, I just need a booster. Please give me some suggestions, I’d greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      There aren’t any and you don’t weigh enough to qualify for the only one with FDA approval.
      Nothing for it but sensible eating and exercise.

      If you eat 3,500 calories more than your body needs, you will put on about 1 pound. If you use up 3,500 calories more than you eat, you will lose about 1 pound in weight.

  39. QUESTION:
    Do any weight loss pills/supplements actually work?
    I need to lose approx. 140lbs over the summer. I am already on a rice diet and exercising more frequently at the company gym. Are there any diet supplements that have proven to be effective? With so many of them out there claiming to work, and knowing that most do not, has anyone used one that REALLY works? Thx in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      Do NOT take diet pills! They are dangerous!!

      Last year I was visiting my parents and took diet pills on top on my exercise routine and normal diet. I was 26 at the time, 5’11, 180 lbs. By week three I was sick. I had diarrhea, dry heaves, dizziness, headaches, and a general feeling of being sick. I thought I had caught the flu or something. I had lost 13 lbs in 4 days. One morning I told my mom I didn’t feel good. My vision kept blacking out and I felt (for lack of a better way to say it) stoned. Later that afternoon I was walking from the bathroom to my bedroom (a 5 foot walk) and I passed out. I was rushed to the hospital emergency where they did a bunch of tests on me.

      My pulse was up to 120, My blood pressure was 150/40, they had to start me on an IV, the did an EKG on me, took blood and urine samples, and a whole barrage of other tests.

      They finally got me stabilized and said that I was dehydrated and malnutritioned. I told him that I took diet pills. When I mentioned diet pill, the doctors face lit up and said that’s why. He said they can cause a whole bunch of health problems, including death. He told me to toss the diet pills or next time I might not be so lucky.

      I was kept in the hospital for almost 10 hours, given 3 or 4 IVs, potassium, juices, and monitored (by the EKG, blood pressure, and heart rate machines) every 15 minutes.

      Please take my story as a warning. If you seriously want to loose weight there are better ways (I know because I’ve lost weight after this)

      The quickest way to lose weight is to cut out red meats, starches, breads, sugars, alcohol, and sodas.

      Eat veggies (salads are good), soups, and drink TONS of water. If you get hungry between a meal, drink water to fill up.

      In moderation eat white meats, and fruits (fruits contain natural sugars, and that can put on weight)

      Practice portion control. Yes, you’ll feel hungry at first, but think of your goal, and soon your stomach will start shrinking and you won’t have that feeling anymore.

      Eat 5 times a day. A small breakfast. A mid-morning snack, such as an apple. A small lunch. A mid-afternoon snack, such as carrots. A lite dinner. Do not eat any later than 7pm (6pm is better.)

      Go exercise for at least an hour – two a day, incorporating weight training along with your cardio. Cardio helps to melt the fat, while weight training builds muscle. Muscle burns fat, even when you are resting. You get the idea. It also gives tone and definition. Also do a few yoga and pilates exercises to help tone those hard to reach and stubborn areas

  42. QUESTION:
    weight loss ,has anyone found a diet or weight loss supplement that works and please dont say exersize ino how

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with Mugpie – Ive tried everything under the sun but WW is the bee’s knees. While it wont take the weight off quickly, it keeps it off by retraining your approach to food. Lunchbox Diet is another good one.

  43. QUESTION:
    Should I get rid of these weight loss supplements?
    I have Triple Strength Fish Oil, Mega T Green Tea with Acai Berry and Hoodia extract pills, I also have over the counter Magnesium, Reservatrol diet pills, and Chromium Picolinate pills.

    Someone told me that it’s hard to burn fat because the liver is trying to get rid of all the weight loss medications, workout supplements…so I thought about it and took what was said on this youtube video into consideration.

    Should I get rid of these pills or keep them?

    • ANSWER:
      That’s a lot of supplements, but nothing bad for you in that mix. The fish oil, green tea and magnesium have positive health benefits beyond weight loss. I’d be suspicious of the diet pills.

  44. QUESTION:
    Are there any weight loss supplements (pills, tea, etc.) for people under the age of 18?
    I am younger than 18, and I want to be on supplements to speed up the weight loss. Normally I would stick to a healthy diet, but I need to be in good shape by April. Any ideas? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I have been through it all and know what’s it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can’t be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I’ve worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

      Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

      First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can’t eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising…

      This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it’s good for the heart.

      However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It’s so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I’ve found a great addition to help any one out, it’s a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don’t get all crazy on me and say diet pills don’t work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn’t meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It’s an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace.com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it’s the best pill I’ve tried and I’ve tried cupboards full. Now this doesn’t mean you have to follow my foot steps but I’ve successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

      Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

  45. QUESTION:
    Diet Supplements that help aid weight loss?
    I eat healthy and exercise. I eat roughly 1800 calories and exercise religiously. But I’m not getting the results I want. It’s not like I’m not trying hard enough; I’m eating 6 tinier portioned meals a day spaced roughly 2-3 hours apart, exercising as much as I can and making sure sweets don’t make it passed the front door of my house. I’ve been doing this for months now, but I think it has more to do with my lovely female hormones and my body’s amazing ability to bloat beyond one’s belief. What are some dietary supplements that are effective in getting more out of your workout and diet change? I don’t want something that will cause serious side effects, like most diet pills. Please rate them from best to worst.

    • ANSWER:
      Have you tried Hoodia Gordonii? Hoodia Gordonii is a weight loss herb discovered
      by the San tribesman of Africa, Hoodia Gordonii actually contains a special molecule
      that fools your brain into believing you are full .

      Hoodia is the most famous appetite suppressant but you have to be
      careful to ensure you only choose pure Hoodia from South Africa.

      For generations, the nomadic Sans tribe have used Hoodia Gordonii to suppress their appetite.

      The media became interested when a UK based firm called Phytopharm researched the
      plant and isolated the active ingredient which they called P57.

      This was then licensed to Pfizer who subsequently sold it to Unilever.

      Clinical studies have shown that pure dried Hoodia Gordonii powder can:
      reduce food intake by half, reduce calorie intake by up to 2,000 calories per day.

      P57 is 10,000 stronger than glucose at suppressing the appetite thus significantly reduces body fat

      You MUST be careful when buying Hoodia on the internet however.

      What you need to do is ditch this Anne Collins thing and go to a weight loss spa. I went to Fitness Ridge Weight Loss Spa in St. George, UT and lost 34 pounds in 4 weeks. Great hiking and terrific staff.

  48. QUESTION:
    What weight loss supplements would you suggest?
    I’ve decided to lose about 50 lbs by the time the summer is over and so far I’m making great progress. I started my diet a little over a month ago and have already lost 14 lbs. I joined the gym. I go at least 4 times a week. Usually every day though unless another plan interrupts my schedule. I am watching what I eat. I have cut my calories significantly and even started keeping a food diary, in which i also keep track of my exercise. I bought a pedometer and count me steps, basically I’ve improved my way tremendously since the year started. My question now is in regards to those infamous “weight loss pills”. I would like to add something to increase my energy, boost my metabolism, and just speed up the process. I am kind of in a hurry because I am planning a vacation and would like to possibly complete this before my initial plan. But how can you trust anything out there, really? Has anyone taken anything that they were satisfied with? Or does anybody have any tips in general?
    I tried the Slimquick, I even tried TrimSpa, but stopped taking them soon after. Trimspa still sits in my closet i took like 4 of them. Slimquick i used a whole bottle of, bought another one, went through half and then stopped because i wasn’t sure if they would interact with medications that i started taking at the time. I can say i was pretty satisfied with the results slimquick gave me. Still I would like to see what other options I have. The cost is also a concern, simply because I’m not rich and can’t afford to spend 0/month on weight loss pills. A friend of mine [body builder] swears by Hydroxycut. But not many other people I talked to recommended it, so any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      DO NOT TAKE DIET PILLS! They are dangerous!!

      Last year I was visiting my parents and took diet pills on top on my exercise routine and normal diet. I was 26 at the time, 5’11, 180 lbs. By week three I was sick. I had diarrhea, dry heaves, dizziness, headaches, and a general feeling of being sick. I thought I had caught the flu or something. I had lost 13 lbs in 4 days. One morning I told my mom I didn’t feel good. My vision kept blacking out and I felt (for lack of a better way to say it) stoned. Later that afternoon I was walking from the bathroom to my bedroom (a 5 foot walk) and I passed out. I was rushed to the hospital emergency where they did a bunch of tests on me.

      My pulse was up to 120, My blood pressure was 150/40, they had to start me on an IV, the did an EKG on me, took blood and urine samples, and a whole barrage of other tests.

      They finally got me stabilized and said that I was dehydrated and malnutritioned. I told him that I took diet pills. When I mentioned diet pill, the doctors face lit up and said that’s why. He said they can cause a whole bunch of health problems, including death. He told me to toss the diet pills or next time I might not be so lucky.

      I was kept in the hospital for almost 10 hours, given 3 or 4 IVs, potassium, juices, and monitored (by the EKG, blood pressure, and heart rate machines) every 15 minutes.

      Please take my story as a warning. If you seriously want to loose weight there are better ways (I know because I’ve lost weight after this)

      The quickest way is to cut out red meats, starches, breads, sugars, alcohol, and sodas.

      Eat veggies (salads are good), soups, and drink TONS of water. If you get hungry between a meal, drink water to fill up.

      In moderation eat white meats, and fruits (fruits contain natural sugars, and that can put on weight)

      Practice portion control. Yes, you’ll feel hungry at first, but think of your goal, and soon your stomach will start shrinking and you won’t have that feeling anymore.

      Eat 5 times a day. A small breakfast. A mid-morning snack, such as an apple. A small lunch. A mid-afternoon snack, such as carrots. A lite dinner. Do not eat any later than 7pm (6pm is better.)

      Go exercise for at least an hour a day, incorporating weight training. Weight training builds muscle. Muscle burns fat. You get the idea. It also gives tone and definition. Also do a few yoga and pilates exercises to help tone those hard to reach and stubborn areas.

    Has anyone tried any weight loss supplements that show results?
    Hi everyone, I am 5’1, 121 pounds. I have a healthy diet and exercise whenever I can and was wondering if any of you have tried a weight loss supplement that showed results..
    I’m at a point in my success where the weight is coming off slower.
    please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Most of them are junk to be honest with you, but I found one last year that has really helped me lose weight faster than without it, so I feel comfortable recommending it to you.
      It’s called Green Tea Fat Burner. The site below shows what the package looks like. I find it almost anywhere.
      Since it’s a Green Tea product, it’s healthy as well.
      I’m not some kook who takes a bunch of diet pills by the way!
      I am the author of The Logic Diet.
      I lost 86 pounds and have kept it off for 4 years now.
      I still cheat on my diet on the weekends, and it used to take me about 6-8 days of dieting to lose the weight back.
      Once I started using this Green Tea stuff as directed…. I would lose the weight back in 2-3 days!
      It really is unbelievable… and it’s cheap too!
      If you have any other troubles keeping your weight off, or want to see more ways to lose it in the first place, check out my book as well please!


Diet Weight Loss Program

Most of us have heard of Atkin’s diet which calls for almost a complete carbohydrate cut from our diet for the first 2 weeks (induction phase)and then to add carbohydrate to our meals progressively thereafter. Whilst there are many success stories for this weight loss diet, there are also many criticisms claiming that Atkin’s diet weight loss program is very unhealthy.

Well, to me, most weight loss diets are unhealthy. Anyway, I find Doctor Barry Sear’s zone diet as one of the better or healthier weight loss diet. Please do note that I am not advocating dieting alone as a weight loss plan and strategy. I believe to lose weight and to keep the extra weight off permanently, we must combine healthy eating habits with regular exercise.

So what is the Zone Diet weight loss program?

The Zone Diet plan advocates protein-carb-fat balance in our meals. Very much like eating balanced meals.

Protein In Zone Diet

Our body needs a constant supply of protein as proteins are our body’s building blocks. This is the reason why zone diet meals start with low-fat protein. Proteins stimulate glucagon production, a hormone that helps our body to release stored carbohydrates (glycogen) from our liver to maintain blood sugar levels for the brain. However, we should not consume protein in an amount bigger than the size and thickness of the palm of your hand, said Dr Barry Sears.

The protein serving should occupy one third of our dining plate because our body cannot use more protein than that (for ordinary folks who are not into building muscles).

Do choose the leanest protein as there are likely fats in your meal and saturated fat in any weight loss diet program should be kept low.

Carbohydrates In Zone Diet

The protein portion of a zone diet meal must be balanced and on par with the carbohydrates. Do note that not all carbs are equal. Fruits and vegetables are good carbs with a low capacity to stimulate insulin production, while other vegetables (such as carrots and potatos etc) and grain-based or refined flour products (white bread, pasta, white rice, cakes etc.) are bad carbohydrates as they are high glycemic carbs. Since the Zone diet’s goal is insulin control, we must make sure that most of the carbohydrates are of the low glycemic types.

So one third of our meal should come from protein source and two thirds from good carbohydrate source like green leafy vegetables.

Fats In Zone Diet

A Zone diet meal requires fat. Good fats come in two forms: monounsaturated fats and long-chain omega-3 fats. Monounsaturated fats come from olive oil, some type of nuts aznd avocados etc. Long-chain omega-3 fats can come from fish oil.

Limit bad fats like saturated fat and trans fat. Saturated fat comes from animal meat and high-fat dairy products. Trans fats are artificial fats created by the food industry, commonly listed as partially hydrogenated oil.

Then there is a type of omega-6 fatty acid known as arachidonic acid, found mainly in fatty red meats, egg yolks and organ meats. We do need some arachidonic acid in our diet, but too of this acid much can be damaging to our health just like any other fat.

Conclusion Of The Zone Diet Weight Loss Program

Sounds like common sense balanced meals isn’t it? Would you include The Zone Diet plan into your weight loss program? What do you think about The Zone Diet?

      Gina Kolata “Rethinking Thin” –> Commercial weight loss programs fail over the long term
      Dean Ornish “Eat More, Weigh Less” –> Healthier diet (whole plant based) results in weight loss

      I lost 80+ pounds by eating a healthier diet. My blood work and blood pressure are now perfect thanks to a healthy lifestyle and diet. I need no drugs.

      For information on this diet, I recommend Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s books.

  2. QUESTION:
    Does the Nutrisystem Weight Loss Diet Program really work?
    I plan on getting on the weight loss program in November (after having a baby). I would like to know if it really works???!!!! Just checked out their website and started looking around. I can’t find a price without letting them know my personal information. Does anyone know about how much it cost? Did it work for you? My plan is to drop about 50-60 pounds. The reason I am considering Nutrisystem is because the food is already made. With having a new baby I will be pressed for time. Please only respond if you have tried it or know someone that has. Thanks everyone!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,
      I just ordered Nutrisystem on Saturday 8/25/07 and I recieved my box of food yesterday 8/29/07. I have been on it for 2 full days! The first day I hated the first 2 things I ate and I was pretty pissed off and thought I would deffinatly quit. But today, however, everything I ate was actually really good!! I oredered the variety pack and my next month I’ll get to choose which meals I like. You get ALOT of food and you eat like 6 times a day. They give you one week free…so it’s 5 whole weeks of food. I paid exactly 3.90. It just was charged onto my credit card today. The people on the site are really cool and there are chat boards and free online classes. There is a lot to do on the site and it’s quite fun making friends that are doing the same thing you are. I work ALOT, so I think that this is the best diet plan for me. I have gained 45 pounds since having my daughter 9 months ago (in November also). So far i feel like i have more energy and I’m happy with it. Don’t just take my advice though….I’ve only been on it for 2 days. Best of Luck!!! : )

  3. QUESTION:
    Is there a good Weight-Loss Diet program for Type I Diabetics?
    I am a 23-year-old Type I diabetic, and though not overweight, I would like to lose a few unneeded pounds. As you may know, the use of insulin often negates weight-loss efforts, and I have struggled for some time now to get back to my “ideal” weight. If anyone can recommend a good diet program or even throw out some suggestions of how to combat this problem, it would be greatly appreciated!!

    • ANSWER:
      Even type 2s on insulin have a very hard time keeping unwanted pounds off. I was the original skinny minny when the doctor decided I needed to take insulin injections along with my oral meds.

      I follow the South Beach phase 2 food plan. I follow it pretty religiously too. and have for the best part of 10 years because it is very low carb and you can tailor it to fit your needs.

      Contrary to popular opinion, it and Atkins are NOT high fat or high protein food plans!!! They have sensible serving sizes and the choice of foods is great. You do not HAVE to buy specialty foods on either one.

      If you eat sufficient saturated fats and sufficient protein, you will be fuller faster so more sated and not want or need as much of the carb stuff.

      This study was with type 2 people, but same works for type 1.

      And this is from Livin LaVida Low Carb blog:

      http://livinlavidalocarb.blogspot.com/2007/12/study-low-carb-lowers-low-fat-diet.html

  7. QUESTION:
    Does donating a pint of blood affect a weight loss program/diet?
    Just wondering… I figured it might help because your body might have to work more to recover the lost blood resulting in more weight loss. But, that’s my theory/guess. Any input would be helpful. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Well, it does burn the equivalent of about 650 calories. However, you’re advised to take it easy for the rest of the day. As far as your body’s concerned, you’re wounded!

      click this link for vegetarian variant of GM diet.

      click on http://www.healthmad.com/Weight-Loss/General-Motors-Weight-Loss-Diet.56927
      for non vegetarian diet

      My advice:
      I have actually done this GM diet program – the vegetarian variant. This was done by me one week ago. I was 87 kgs when I started this and immediately after the week, I checked up and I lost 2.5 kgs. One of my friends lost 4 kgs. This diet is easy to follow, once you have the resolve, because, you are never hungry during the one week. I plan to do it again, after one or two weeks.

      I recommend this to all. The beauty of this course is you are never hungry, and so you dont tend to break it midway, which is not so in the case of other dietary programs.

    Can anyone give me a good weight loss program or diet plan for me?
    i’d like to lose weigh, but i dont want to have to kill myself to do it …. do any of yall know an effective diet plan and exercise program that could help me with this? i’d appreciate it.

    • ANSWER:
      Dr Diana Schwarzbein,an endocrinologist,has probably one of the most sane diet and exercise plans there is. she promotes balanced meals which include a fairly equal portion or protein,fats,whole grain carbs,and non starchy carbs. she is also against overexercising.
      since she is an endocrinologist she teaches to get the body back in hormonal balance which controls the metabolism.
      she has a website. i personally follow her plan from her books,The Schwarzbein Principle I and II, and lose about 1lb a week without any great effort.it’s more just a change in eating rather than any calorie restriction. the books even have a week of meal plans which even though i don’t follow exactly are a great help.
      you could read the readers reviews on amazon to get an idea of how well the plan works for others too.

    Can someone make a weight loss/ diet program for me.?
    I am 13 years old and I am fat/heavy. I was wondering if someone could please tell me what to do to lose weight. You know just tell me how much i need to workout and what foods i need to eat and when i need to eat the foods. I’m going through puberty if that helps with this situation. I don’t care about “intent” results, i just want to lose 20ish pounds in 5 months or 6 months-ish. Please help.

    • ANSWER:
      You should be doing cardio exercises at least 4 days a week. Start off slow, like going for a brisk walk in the evening. Once you get accustomed to doing brisk walking for an hour or so, start adding in periods of jogging, and then walk, and keep alternating the cycle of walking/jogging during every even walk you do. Keep increasing the amount of jogging until you are jogging everytime.

      Things like pushups won’t do you any good, so stay away from muscle exercises until you lose the weight.

      Also, a change in eating habits will make a dramatic change. It’s likely that you’ve gained weight through bad eating (Like I did, and most other people). Get the fast food out of your eating habit all together, and make more salads and eat more fruit.

      If you really want a comprehensive diet, I really recommend the guide spoken of on this webpage http://www.bestweightlosssupplementreviews.com/

      You might not be available to afford it, but shoot it past your parents. They might be interested in your efforts.

      Good luck, and whatever plan you choose to do, stick with it!

    can i still work out on the general motors: weight loss diet program?
    is it heal;thy to work out because i want to lose weight but i dont want to loose muscle can i combine this diet with a healthy workout session to gain muscle as i lose the pounds

    • ANSWER:
      Now whenever it comes to weight loss you should follow these simple steps that have helped me tremendously lose weight, pretty quickly if you ask me. And I’ve been trying to lose weight forever and finally found the correct system to help me out…

      The first thing you need to do is about 30 minutes of cardio everyday, try to get at least 3-4 days of that people…Exercising is one very important issue you don’t want to be lazy in.

      The second thing you should realize is that you cannot eat everything in sight that probably got you looking the way you are right now or the reason you want to lose weight. The pounds come with the food you eat. How do you stop yourself from eating and get a little boost with ousting fat from the food you eat? Simple…

      The third and final step is the correct natural weight loss supplement. For me, I found Proactol to be the best. Now this isn’t aimed towards lazy people that want to take a pill and sit on the couch all night and day. These are to tremendously help out with dieting and exercising. For me they were great because with my diet, they basically take out up to 28% of the fat you intake. Not to mention the killer appetite suppressant Proactol is. Every day you will fall under your calorie intake and find yourself one more day closer to your goal.

      These steps really worked for me, you should try them out for yourself even if you want to lose very little or that extra mile. Also at the time of my 3 month supply purchase of Proactol, I saved a lot of money on it at theweightlossplace .com

      Good luck and I hope this helps you out for your weight loss goals.

  15. QUESTION:
    how can i stick to my diet ,weight loss program without screwing up?

    • ANSWER:
      Oh, I’ve been in your shoes. I find that if you’re taking away all the foods you love, that may not necessarily be the best for you, you tend to miss them. Through 4 years of up and down weight, I’m just finally getting things right.
      Don’t take away everything. Have a little something every now and again and as long as you’re active, threre’s really nothing to worry about. If you’re vice is a chocolate bar, go ahead and have it. Don’t have one every day, but limit yourself to once or twice per week. If you take away every food you love, then you’re going to miss it that much more. Just remember, what goes in must come out. You’ve got to put energy in to fuel your body and you’ve also got to get rid of some of it.
      If you’re good 80% of the time, you can afford to be bad 20% of the time. And don’t think of it as a “diet”. That’s such a bad word. Think of it more as a lifestyle change. Do it in small steps and don’t overwhelm yourself. Just make wise choices when it comes to food and keep moving.
      I promise one thing, the golden solution is eating well and moving. But don’t take everything away. Life is too boring that way.

      Good luck

  16. QUESTION:
    Good weight loss program/diet for my cat?
    My cat is about 4-5 years old and was last weighed at 26 pounds, his weight could have gone up since then. I can’t take him to the vet because I just don’t have any money to spare right now. I am still really concerned about his health though. Are there any good weight loss programs/diets that I can put him on to get him healthy?

    P.s. He has been fat for a while now.

    • ANSWER:
      It’s really easy, just feed them less. If you’re free feeding, stop. Feed three small-ish meals a day. Look at the guidelines on the bag and see how much your cat should be eating. Then cut back by about an eighth of a cup. In three weeks, weigh your cat again. If he gained weight or stayed the same, cut back by another eighth of a cup or so. If he lost weight, you can continue at the same pace. Weigh every 3-4 weeks so you can have a good handle on whether he’s losing weight or not. If he stopped losing weight and he’s not to his goal weight yet, go ahead an take another eighth of a cup off. An easy fairly accurate way to weigh your cat is to weigh yourself first and then weigh yourself holding your cat and see what the difference is. Obviously not hugely accurate but should work okay for these purposes. You need some mental toughness also :) He’ll probably act like he’s starving, beg for more food, etc, but you just need to ignore it.

      Exercise obviously helps but some cats just aren’t into playing. Do what you can but don’t fret if he doesn’t want to play all day..

      Good luck! You’re right to be concerned about his health. So many negative consequences for an overweight kitty.

  18. QUESTION:
    Is it common to feel sick just after you have started a (diet and excercise) weight-loss program?
    I just started a (much needed) weightloss program on Saturday and I felt fine then and on Sunday but now today (Monday) I basically feel like if I’m coming down with a flu. It it because my body is reacting to the change in activities and my new diet or am I just coming down with the flu.

    • ANSWER:
      That’s a good question. When I went on my diet-and-exercise kick, I went through sugar and simple-carb withdrawal (really!) for about 4 days. I felt like total sh+t because although I didn’t eat massive amounts of sugar my body was craving those simple carbs. So it depends…have you cut out certain addictive foods like wheat or sugar or dairy? are you overexercising? Play it by ear and wait a few days. If you feel worse and worse, go to the doctor. But keep in mind that you could be adjusting, in which case you’ll feel worse tomorrow then start feeling better.

  24. QUESTION:
    what is the good way to lose weight, a diet, a weight loss program for a women?

    • ANSWER:
      The same as it is for men. Drink plenty of water. Get plenty of sleep. And burn more calories daily than you are ingesting. If you want to bulk up (add muscle) do heavy weightlifting with heavy weight with fewer reps. If you want to drop weight and tone, do lots of cardio (dance, jumping rope, running, biking, etc.) with lighter weights and more reps. I work out about 5 times a week. I do martial arts.

      The key is to keep your heartrate elevated continuously for at least 30 minutes. My normal workout takes about 50 minutes. I’ve lost 40lbs over the last year or so.

  26. QUESTION:
    GM: Weight Loss Diet Program?
    Hi all….I’m looking to join the Air Force, but I’m a few pounds shy of the limit for my height. My recruiter doesn’t want to bring down for my MEPS visit until I’m under the limit. The last two weeks I’ve adjusted my diet to around 1800 calories max, and have been working out everyday through Tae Kwon Do and running. I’ve lost 5 pounds so far, but I’m still 5 pounds short. My recruiter and I both want to get me processed ASAP as the wait times for jobs and such are getting longer. I just found this GM: Weight Loss Diet, and I’m wondering if I should maybe give it a go. Yes, I know its a fad diet. And in most cases the weight is gained right back. But I would only use it for the one week, and then I would resume my current diet. My plan is to lose weight long term, not just to beat the scales so I can get in the AF, and then forgot about my weight. Yes, I know there are much healthier ways to losing the weight, but again its just this once. So should I give it a shot? Or is it totally a hoax, or a very, very bad idea to put my body through it? Here’s a link to the diet.

    • ANSWER:

  27. QUESTION:
    I have recently gone on a diet and weight loss program?
    As stated I have recently gone on a diet and weight loss program and am wondering how long I can expect to lose approximately the same weight I have been. I started at 405 lbs and am currently 359 lbs. It took me 2 1/2 months to lose that much and I do understand that the bigger you are to begin with the faster your initial loss will be. My question is just when will i get to the point of 1-2 lbs per week instead of nearly 5 lbs per week.

  29. QUESTION:
    Is diet coke ok for a weight loss program?
    I am on a fairly strict, high protein low fat diet. I think it would be okay, because it has like, no calories or sugar or anything? But people tell me it will hinder progress?

    I think it’s bad for you coz of chemicals and that? But would it actually affect weight loss?

    • ANSWER:
      It will hinder your progress. When you drink artificial sweeteners, your body doesn’t recognize that you’ve had something sweet and will still crave something with sugar. Also, your body tends to know how many calories it has consumed based on how food tastes. When you use artificial sweeteners, your body gets confused because it’s had a lot of sweet stuff and yet no calories. So it can no longer be an accurate judge of how many calories you’ve had and you will eat too much.

      I know it sounds like a bunch of bull, but it’s true. Artificial sweeteners will wreck your diet. Look at how fat our country has gotten since diet soft drinks first came on the market. Don’t use them.

  30. QUESTION:
    Balanced, healthy ovo vegetarian weight loss diet program. Gained weight after trying to go vegan?
    I have been a vegetarian for a bit more than two years now. For the past two years, I had also been gradually gaining weight. I packed more pounds this year after trying to go vegan and switching from milk to “almond milk”. I went from weighing 150 to 180. I’ve managed to come down to 162. That was the only change to my diet and I managed to gain weight. Now I am off almond milk and pasta. I tried going back to milk but I started to get blemishes on my face. I’d like to know if anyone knows of a healthy and balanced ovo vegetarian diet that doesn’t require additional supplements. I am exercising and trying to eat healthier; but I want to make sure I am going about it the right way.

    • ANSWER:
      No, no, no…almond milk instead of cow’s milk did not make you gain THIRTY FREAKIN’ POUNDS. Are you serious? Think about it…especially because almond milk almost always contains less than half the calories of its dairy counterpart, how the hell is almond milk going to add a whopping 30 pounds to you? Unless you’re HIGHLY allergic to almonds and having a seriously terrible inflammatory response from that allergy, it’s impossible that simple little switch is adding pounds.

      Let’s face it: your diet sucks and you’re not getting enough exercise. There’s no two ways about it. Why not shoot me what you’re currently doing via email and I can better help you.

    what is the difference between a weight loss program and a diet?
    i need to know for my fitness project… i can’t find it on the internet…. ?

    • ANSWER:
      A weight loss program is a special diet one uses to try to lose weight. A diet is what one eats. For example, if you’re on a weight loss program, your diet consists of what the weight loss program recommends. If you’re not on a weight loss program, your diet consists of what you’d normally eat.

    Does anybody know a good program inclode (breakfast,lunch,afternoon,dinner)
    what to eat???
    plz helpppp me
    i look forward to hearing from all of you.
    thx

    • ANSWER:
      Whenever you are trying to lose weight, you should concentrate on these three things which all work together in providing a healthier and quicker weight loss goal for yourself. I have found this combination really successful in my weight loss plans. The first thing is exercising and how much you can put forth into it. The more you exercise, the more results you will see. The next thing is dieting and the calorie intake. If you exercise more, technically you could eat more? Always watch what you eat.

      Now the last step in a good weight loss plan is always a good diet pill that can help you get to the end of the road. I have found Proactol which is a natural herbal diet pill to be the best around. It’s an appetite suppressant along with being a fat blocker which stops up to 28% of fat you eat. Read up about it at TheWeightLossPlace .com where I saved money on it. Proactol really works well with exercising which gives you plenty of energy to perform. Along with that you diet will be affected by Proactol due to the appetite suppressant and fat blocker. If you slip up on meals, the fat blocker kicks in. It’s really great to stop food cravings.

      Concentrate on those three things and the combination is deadly for the fat cells in your body. Good luck and I hope this helps.

  36. QUESTION:
    What do you think of General Motors: Weight Loss Diet Program .has anyone tried it..?did u find it beneficial?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Nancy P
      This information would help you to know the realities about the diet plan for weight loss, the advantages and disadvantage of medicines and exercises.

      1. The disadvantages of medicines

      If you search for some diet plan for weight loss then, you would find that, many of doctors for such plans give prescriptions of pills and tablets. You would find that most of these tablets and pills are addictive in nature. On the contrary, you would also find that if suppose those medications are used by a person and there is a weight loss then, the moment the person would stop the medication he would resume back.

      2. Limiting your food

      If you are also trying to loose weight, there are diet plans for weight loss, which not just asks you to take medications but also there are some that ask you to leave some amount of food everyday. They ask you to lose some weight by leaving some kinds of food, especially those foods that give cholesterol. Cholesterol leads the body to gain some more overweight. Therefore these kinds of food are not recommended for your body. But, there is a doubt whether the person would lose weight quickly or not.

      3. Taking too much of your time

      Another factor over these kinds of diet plans for weight loss is the losing of weight done through work out. Working out or exercising also can help loose weight from the body. The doctors many a times would ask you to take walk for an hour or work out at home or at the gym. It take a lot of time and also lead to a lot of fatigue at the end of the day.

      4. Disturbance of other commitments

      There is nothing wrong in doing so, but many a times doings theses things take agreement, while it is just not possible for the other person to leave other agreements. It won’t be easy for you also if you are you are taking commitments.

      5. Putting your money n doctors

      Another ways of loosing your weight is to detoxify the body. This detoxification is done by the doctors through some therapy.

      Theses are some of the diet plans for weight loss which are mainly recommended for every person who are trying weight loss. These plans are more in use by most of the people, and so, you will have to select either one of them.

      I would recommend this website

    • ANSWER:

      :)

  38. QUESTION:
    Does a detox diet help to kickstart a weight loss program?
    Would anyone recommend or comment on a cleansing/detox diet they’ve done.

    • ANSWER:
      I did a 3 day detox last year. It was tough but totally worth it. You may have seen it on the internet, it’s called the master cleanse. First you will need a gallon of distilled water, 2 lemons, 2 table spoons of cayenne peper and 2 teaspoons of grade B pure maple syrup. Distilled water, cayenne pepper, and lemon juice are great for leaching out impurities from your system. When you detox, you also eliminate the good too, vitamins and minerals. Believe it or not, the grade B maple syrup is high in vitamins and minerals and it makes the drink a little more tolerable.

      The first day is by far the toughest. You’ll be cranky, annoyed, irritable, lonely and tired… HANG IN THERE!!! The next day you’ll start feeling the effects and you’ll be happy. Sometime in the afternoon, your head will start clearing out and you’ll have more energy. The third day will be even better. Every once in a while you’ll go through little irritable, foggy head phase, but that will pass.

      When you are done you’ll be a little weak but in a day or two, you’ll be back and better than ever. Really just as important as doing the fast, is putting good things in your body afterwards.

      Good luck!!!!

  39. QUESTION:
    What diet pills are good to use with a weight loss program?
    I have wanted to lose some weight, and I managed to drop about 7 pounds just by eating better and jogging 3 days a week, and doing at least an hour of exercises every day.

    I wanted to know, what is the best diet supplement pill to use with a program? My metabolism has become slower as I got older so I need some thing that will help give me a boost.

    • ANSWER:
      Follow these 10 tips for fat burning if you want to lose weight and lead a healthier way of life.

      1.) Drink More Water

      One of the best weight loss secrets is to ditch the sodas and stick to water! Experts say you should drink approximately eight glasses of water a day to stay hydrated and healthy. Instead of turning to calorie-laden or sugar-rich drinks, grab a refreshing glass of water. In addition to flushing toxins out of your system, drinking water encourages you to build muscle.

      2.) Eat More Meals

      A traditional three-meals-a-day plan just will not cut it if you are in the market to burn fat. Your body is not able to metabolize large meals and will quickly turn any excess into fat. Many experts believe you should eat six small meals a day. Be sure you cut back on your food consumption at each meal, or else you will be doubling your intake—and doubling your fat storage!

      3.) Work Out with Weights

      One great way to maximize the amount of fat you are burning is to add a weight program to your work out routine. Weight training will not only tone your physique, but will strengthen your body and improve your general health. Lifting weights will also burn calories and fat more quickly than traditional exercising, and it will also boost your metabolism.

      4.) Choose Protein

      Choose protein-laden foods for boosting your metabolism and enabling your body to burn fat rapidly. In addition to burning fat, consuming a protein-enriched diet will help you rebuild muscle after work outs and maintain leanness of that muscle. Wisely choose proteins for your diet. Take great care to pick proteins low in fat so you do not consume extra calories.

      5.) Cut Calories Wisely

      It may be tempting to drastically cut your calorie intake when starting a healthy lifestyle. Instead, use a step method when cutting your calorie intake to minimize risk. Reducing calories too quickly results in your body rapidly burning all available calories, which will lower your metabolism. Furthermore, you are more likely to maintain your healthy lifestyle through this step method.

      6.) Reward Yourself

      When it comes to successfully dieting to burn the most fat, be sure to reward yourself. Everyone has temptations and favorite treats—so allow indulgence. You will be less likely to cheat on your new diet if you grant yourself small rewards. If you are a chocolate lover, treat yourself to a small square of chocolate or single chocolate kiss each evening.

      7.) Avoid Marathon Work Outs

      The biggest mistake people make when looking to burn fat and lose weight is to have one long, extensive work out session. Instead, break up your work out plan into small chunks throughout the day. Take a brisk walk in the morning, enjoy a work out at lunch, and then exercise more in the evening. In addition to staying active all day long, breaking up your work out will better maintain your metabolism.

      8.) Mix It Up

      Choosing to engage in a variety of quality exercises will keep your interest and best allow you to maintain your goal of burning fat. Instead of doing the same exercises each day—mix it up! Opt to swim laps one day, jog another, and bike the next. Rotating your activities will not only allow you to experience a variety of athletics, it will also allow you to better tone your body.

      9.) Skip Happy Hour

      For those individuals who want to burn fat quickly, avoid alcohol. Rich in sugars and carbohydrates, alcohol is a calorie-rich substance. These empty calories can add up quickly and take away from necessary nutrients that should be included in your daily diet. Furthermore, alcohol acts as an inhibitor for burning fat, allowing your body to store it more quickly.

      10.) Try a Low GI Diet

      A low GI diet is an excellent method of burning fat quickly. This diet encourages individuals to consume high amounts of foods with low rankings on the Glycemic Index. These foods are nutritious and will aid your body in burning fats and calories at a quicker pace. This diet includes many of your favorite fruits, vegetable, meats, dairy, and grain products.

      You need a good combination of aerobic activity and resistance training combined with a healthy diet.

      It is not recommended to lose more than 1-3 lbs a week. If you want to lose weight the correct and safe way that will stay off for the long-term you need a good exercise and nutrition plan.

      A good program looks like this:

      Always warm up and cool down

      Muscular strength & endurance-you need a good resistance training program that includes exercises for all muscle groups(hips, chest, upper and mid back, legs (quads and hamstrings), shoulders, lower back, upper arms (biceps and triceps), calves, forearms, abdomen, and the gluteus maximus).
      Your intensity should be 70-80% 1-RM or 8-12-RM, 8-12 reps, 1 or more sets, 3 times a week for 6 weeks or more. You should begin with 1 exercise for each major muscle group and make sure the days you do resistance training are not consecutive meaning you don’t exercise the same muscle group two days in a row. As you continue your program you can add more exercises, add weight, and change up your program to include more days or just work specific muscle groups on specific days. As your muscles grow stronger you will be able to reduce the rest time between each set. You should rest for about 30 seconds between sets. Muscle is metabolically active and therefore when you gain muscle it burns more calories and helps to raise your metabolism.
      If you do not have money for a gym membership or do not have acess to one here is a great website to create a work out plan only using your body weight.

      http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/exercises.php?MainMuscle=&Equip=BodyOnly&Isolation=

      You can also search for all kinds of exercises that use weight.
      You also mentioned that you want to mostly work on upper body and abs, but make sure you don’t neglect the rest of your body because that could result in injury or misalignment of a certain part of your body. It’s fine to focus on a certain muscle group, just make sure to work every muscle group with basic exercises also.

      Cardiovascular Endurance-this is where you can burn fat the most and that leads to enhancing your muscles such as the abs. You need to include a warm-up and cool-down. I have an extensive answer on this section if you would like to read it

      http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AuX3lm8.Tv.BqmVmNUvrkGDsy6IX?qid=20060712075759AAvmuOF

      Body Composition-this includes your body fat percentage, bone frame, as well as how much muscle you have. Most people focus on only weight, but you should not put as much focus on that as much as what your body fat percentage is (get it tested at an exercise facility with skinfold calipers). You should also get circumference measurements done. This includes your neck, shoulder, chest, waist, abdominal, hip (buttocks), thigh (proximal), thigh (mid), thigh (distal), knee, calf, ankle, arm (bicep), forearm, and wrist. You should be able to do this at a gym. You should get all of this information done before you start your program and then you can see how you improve.

      Flexibility- Most people do not even think about this, but it is very important because it helps to prevent injury and it helps you to perform every day activities. It also has an effect on all your other programs. You should perform 10-12 flexibility exercises every day. Slowly stretch the muscle to a point of mild discomfort but not necessarily pain. Hold stretch for 10-30 seconds, and do 3-5 reps for each stretch. This should take about 15-30 minutes per session. If you do not have time to do this every day, try to do it 2-3 times a week.

      You have to make sure that you eat right and that means following the food guide pyramid. I have another answer that discusses this

  45. QUESTION:
    what is the best weight loss diet?
    I want to know what the best weight loss program is. I don’t want any shakes, special store bought diets, I mean stuff like Nutri-System and Jenny Craig. The diets that have the food delivered to your door. I want to know if the servings are reasonably sized.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, so it’s not about dieting, it’s about healthy lifestyle choices. Meaning: eating healthy throughput your life, not only for ’2 months’. Snack on fruits and veggies. When you think you are hungry, drink a glass of water, cause sometimes your mind may tell your hungry but, you really are thirsty. Eat slowly, and don’t stuff yourself, eat until you 80% full not 100%. Eat smaller portions., and make sure to get all your food groups (fruit/veggies, dairy -low fat-, protein, meat/fish, grain ect.) Eat low fat dairy milk products such as skim milk, and 0% yogurt. exercise daily (run, jog, walk). Drink water,milk, and tea. No juice, soda or milkshakes. Also, cut down on the “white products” such as white rice, white flour, white pasta ect., try whole grain instead. When eating Packaged foods, make sure to read the Nutrition Facts for the amount of sodium, sugar and fat. And make sure they are low in those categories. NAd also, try not to starve youself, because when you do your body takes in any fate it can find and it usually ends up on you rbelly. Hope I helped. And Good Luck with you “Healthy Lifestyle”!

It would be fun if some little prizes were offered for being the best competitor in the challenges (protein shakes, fat caliper, etc).

Diet Weight Loss Patch

With the obesity epidemic that is going on today, a diet patch seems like it could be a miracle cure.

A diet patch is a small self-adhesive square something like a bandage that you place somewhere on your body that is supposed to help you melt the pounds off by suppressing the appetite and increasing the metabolism. Often the ingredients are the same as those found in weight loss pills, but the ingredients in the patch enter the body through the skin.

Sticking on a diet patch sounds convenient and easy, but are diet patches too good to be true?

There are very few diet, weight loss, or fat burner products that actually work well. There has been several major diet patch scams in the news lately. These scandals have made people question whether diet patches or even patches in general are effective at all.

There is no doubt that some kinds of patches work well. Many prescription medicines are now administered in patch form, as well as nicotine transdermal patches, which are given to people who are trying to quit smoking.

The skin on our body is actually an organ that enables some things to enter the body, and blocks others. There are capillary networks in the skin that allow certain substances to enter the bloodstream. These networks can help deliver medications found in the patches.

According to scientists, some drugs have the right properties to penetrate the skin and are potent enough to be effective at low doses. These drugs, such as the drug scopolamine, used to treat motion sickness, can be delivered transdermally (through the skin). Technical advances in the last 20-30 years are making patches a much more common form of medicine delivery, and many are saying that it will be the method choice for the future, because they have controlled-release.

Instead of dumping a high concentration of the drug into the blood stream at once, which then slowly drops to a very low level at which time the patient takes another dose, a controlled-release system, such as a patch, keeps the drug at a constant and safe level in the blood stream.

So, while patches can be an effective form of delivery for medicines and even herbs, the question still persists, do diet patches work?

The answer all depends on what ingredients are used and how they are prepared. Each company’s diet patch is different. As we can tell from all the diet patch scandals, many are totally ineffective because of the way they are manufactured or the herbs and ingredients used in them. Be very careful before you purchase any diet patch.

There are diet patches that are very effective, as many people who have lost weight with them can tell you. But a diet patch alone, without any change in a poor diet or unhealthy lifestyle, will probably have little effect. On the other hand, a good diet patch could possibly be just the incentive a person needs to make the changes to a healthier lifestyle that promotes weight loss– by adding energy, suppressing the appetite, and spurring the metabolism into action.

If you are looking for more information about a safe and effective diet patch that has proven to help thousands of people lose weight, check out the website at http://jenfe-diet-patch.com It may just be the thing you needed to help you start losing weight.

  2. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the Pink Patch for diet/weight loss?
    If you have…did it work?!

    • ANSWER:
      I tried it. It basically would be a waste of money without the free trial. It works…somewhat. It does curb cravings…somwehat. I noticed I felt less of a need to snack (in the beginning anyway), especially late at night, which is my problem. But there are better pills for WAY cheaper that do a lot more than this patch. It’s easier, but does very little to warrant the price. Plus there’s no extra energy boost like claimed. And towards the end of my 6day trial, my body began getting used to the patch I guess and the cravings returned.

      So I couldn’t see spending the amount of money they want for a product that does nothing that willpower doesn’t do for free, and then still ends up wearing off within a week of use. Interesting product that does work, kinda…but it’s shortlived (again my body begin overriding the little patch in about 3/4 days) and not worth the money. The trial’s ok though, if you remember to cancel on time. But before investing in a full month supply or more, I’d check out some over the counter pills that curb cravings, give extra energy, etc. You’ll spend like and it’ll work way better as a supplement.

  5. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the Apple Patch Diet as a Business or Product for weight Loss?
    Ok, This is the second time asking this question. I only got two responses – one positive (sort of) and one negative. Neither of them though seemed to ever have tried the product or done the business so BOTH opinions are equally worthless!
    So I’m asking again if anyone has EXPERIENCED this product or sold it as a business?

    • ANSWER:
      Here is a place that reviews a bunch of weight loss programs, dieting aides, supplements and so on. I don’t know if they list the Apple Patch Diet – but you may want to take a look. The site even has categories like diabetes, low fat and hypnosis. Pretty cool site.

  7. QUESTION:
    is it unhealthy for a 16 year old girl to use a weight loss patch?
    i diet and exercise so much but i keep gaining weight and my clothes are too small so its not muscle. im thinking about using a patch from CVS or something but is it really unhealthy for someone my age? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Umm, yea you really shouldn’t use weight loss aids until your about 18. Your body is still growing, and you should just work harder on your diet and exercise. I know it’s hard but when you start getting your results you’ll see that you don’t need a weight loss aid to keep you healthy and in shape. Also if you start using the patch, and then stop, you’ll just gain the weight back so your better off doing it yourself. Good Luck.

  9. QUESTION:
    Dermathol Weight Loss Patches?
    Now, let me first say I do not want any of this ‘Do diet and exercise’ stuff. I am doing a paper on weight loss alternatives to surgery, and am personally trying out the Dermathol Weight Loss Patch with Hoodia. I have read many mixed reviews online already, but I would like a more up to date opinion.

    Have you or someone you know tried this or another diet patch? If so, what results did you see?

    As I stated this is for research purposes, I really do not want to have to sift through a bunch of people saying diet and exercise is the only way to go.

    Thanks!
    By the way, in my research I have found several different pills that have led me to lose weight without diet and exercise. We can send people to the moon, we can send emails instantly, we can do so much stuff. How can a person be so critical of a pill that helps a person to lose weight?

    Anyways, as I stated this is for research purposes. I really don’t want opinions. I just want someone who has tried the patch to tell me what happened to them.

    • ANSWER:
      Should you for any reason whatsoever, find a “magic potion, pill, and in your case patch, that truly causes weight loss without diet and exercise please let me know.
      I will be the first in line with all my worldly assets to invest in the company.
      I’m sorry. This company has patches for everything from pain to cellulite to arthritis?
      Please don’t ask me to invest in them!

      Any chance it says in your directions – “For best results combine with a Healthy Diet and Exercise program”?

  10. QUESTION:
    Hoodia patches and other weight loss stuff?
    I am desperate to lose weight, I must have something wrong with me because I go to the gym 3 times a week and swimming twice a week, I eat really healthily but I have never lost 1 pound. I am 3 stone over my ideal weight so am about to try Hoodia patches (I dont like tablets!) – has anyone got any diet/weight loss secrets and success stories?
    thanks

    • ANSWER:
      If you don’t like tablets go with hoodia liquids they are known to be effective. With hoodia patches, it questionable whether or not the p57 from the hoodia is transmitted through the skin or not. There is a good unbiased comparison on Hoodia liquids at http://hoodiagordonii.totalink.com/hoodialiquid.html

      There are many factors involved in finding the best Hoodia, I have written articles on a lot of them. Just search Yahoo or Google under my name “Andrew Aitaken” to find them.

      Remember, you should always consult your physician before taking any diet pill or weight loss supplements

  11. QUESTION:
    What weight loss aid should I use?
    Hello everyone,
    I am a competitive figure skater. I am 16 years old, and I’m between 5′ 4 1/2″ and 5’5″. My weigh literally fluctuates from day to day, but on average, it’ll probably be somewhere between 132 and 135. I would really like to lose weight; ideally, I’d love to be about 110 or 115 or so. I’ve been off the ice for 6 months because I had surgery, so I gained a lot of weight. I’ve always struggled with my weight, so I’m having a really hard time losing this weight.
    So, I was thinking about some weight loss aid, to supplement my diet and exercise regime. I’m not sure what to use, though. I want to lose as little muscle as possible. I was thinking about the weight loss pill called Avesil. Or, maybe I could use a weight loss patch. What is your opinion? Should I go with pills or patches? And what brand/type would you recommend? Please, no rude or demeaning comments. Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you all have a wonderful day!

    • ANSWER:
      You are 16. You don’t need and pills or potions. I understand the pressure to be thin as a skater, my cousin skated for years and still works out like a fiend.
      Try to eat better and get back to your routine. This will be the best way to do it. You could try P90x. People have lots of great things to say about the program. This will probably even help with your skating.
      A great book I also recommend to people is Tim Ferris’ 4-Hour Body. He has tried lots of cutting edge stuff that works great. Get a copy and learn about what worked for him. This is not a the usual don’t eat this or that book.
      Good luck.

  13. QUESTION:
    Help with 2 questions? Tv show and weight loss patches.?
    Q1:) On the TV series F.R.I.E.N.D.S. In the episode where chandler has sex with his girlfriend kathy for the first time. Monica draws him up a chart with 7 things on it about girls and pleasure. Does anyone know what those 7 things are?

    Q2:) I have purchased some weight loss gel patches.

    You apply one every day and remove at night

    They are supposed to help lose weight.

    It comes with a diet plan but I am not following it.

    I am sticking to my usual eating habbiits.

    I don’t eat healthily nor unhealthily but I eat quite a bit.

    Will these gel patches still assist in weight loss????

    Thank you!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry I didn’t really watch friends, but as to your question about the gel patch Do you really think if it was as easy as buying a patch we’d have any overweight people? None of the quick fixes work, it’s the diet and exercise program that they send you with the quick fix that works. That is why they can legally market it the way they do. They say use there pill, patch, or whatever with the diet plan they send and you’ll lose weight. Sorry I know I wish it was that easy too.

  14. QUESTION:
    any one know of any diet pills that help with weight loss……along with diet and working out….thanks = D
    i am obese and i try to work out and diet but i want some help with a diet aid……….. so i want to know any pills or patches that would help me out (personal or things you know) please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks manda

    • ANSWER:
      you should talk to your doctor, many of the weight loss pills have caffeine for energy and if you are not use to working out they can raise your heart rate to dangerous levels. working out and eating healthy (NOT DIETING!) worked for me. it has to be a life time commitment. plus as soon as you stop taking the diet pills the weight will come back on.

  15. QUESTION:
    Diet Patch / Diet Pills / Fat Metaboliser?
    I know the only way to lose weight sucessfully is healthy eating with increased exercise over a sustained period of time so i am not looking for any quick fix solutions.

    However! I am also looking into products that aid weight loss as part of a healthy lifestyle as mentioned.

    If you have personal experiance with diet pills or patches and can vouch for them working – or not as the case may be – can you please let me know which ones they are.

    I have seen a Diet Patch advertised and was wondering if it was worth trying. I would really like to hear from people who have actually tried these weight loss supplements and for their opinion.

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry all you will loose with these products is £s not lbs. Look around you if ANY of these things worked would we be getting so overweight?

      We are what we eat, but we are at least as much what we don’t do. Calorie intakes in 1900 and 1950 were higher than they are now, we just don’t use them up!

      Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and veg.

      Take a healthy amount of exercise 30-40 minutes of vigorous exercise per day 4-5 days a week. I hate to think what percentage of the UK population does that 2%? 5%?

      I have seen hundreds of questions with this same pattern :- I am fat, tell me where on line I can get this super diet or herbal/dangerous/illegal drug that I hear will fix it for me in 10 minutes without the need for me to get off the couch!

      No fixes pal , less in more out, its the only way.

  16. QUESTION:
    weight loss???
    has anyone ever tried the pink patch diet? does it work? is it safe? cause i really wanna lose some weight and the whole diet thing is not working

    here’s the link if u never heard of it

    http://www.thepinkpatch.com/

    • ANSWER:
      You have to come up with some type of a reward system, this will help keep you motivated. One of the best things to do is make a contingency contract. Stating what you want to do, who will help you do it, and what do you get for doing it.

      Then also try to find a well balance diet program. My friend did this one diet program where the average weight lose is 7 pounds in 9 days. It might be the thing you are looking for, I know it’s well balanced. If you want e-mail me and I can tell you more about either of these.

  17. QUESTION:
    Diet pills….?
    What is the best diet pill to take?

    TrimSpa?

    Fat burner? Or fat blocker?

    Weight loss patch? How do these work?

    Can anybody with experience in this subject school me? Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      I have tried several and honestly, only diet and exercise work. TrimSpa is a total rip off. Again, the only real safe way to loose weight and keep it off is burning more calories than you take in. My only tip is water. Drink at least 64 ounces a day and it will cut your appetite and boost your matobolism. Good Luck!

  18. QUESTION:
    Zotrim, Detox set, Adios and other weight loss information I need.?
    Right, I’m currently on Zotrim, and its doing OK for me, because i don’t feel the need to snack as much, but it’s not doing much else to be honest.

    Is there anyone out there that knows of some cheap(ish) over the counter weight loss aids/diet pills that are good & have worked?
    Has anyone tried Detox & Slim Pads (with “Free” Slimming Tablets)?
    (http://www.slimmingsolutions.co.uk/acatalog/Detox-Foot-Patches-Pads.html —- second one down)

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing there that is at all helpful I am afraid, in fact 2 in 3 so called dieters who try and lose weight in one of these ‘fix it’ ways ends up heavier. Your ONLY chance is to combine modest calorie reduction with regular exercise.

  19. QUESTION:
    The Pink Patch?
    Has anyone ever heard anything about “the pink patch”. it’s a weight-loss patch, but is aimed more at appetite control and energy, supposedly.
    I was just wondering what you (if you know anything about it) think…
    I’m not looking for a easy way out diet, I’m not lazy, I just think that along with my exercise program and something that controls my cravings more I might have more success in losing a few extra pounds.
    Again… sound legit to you or not?

    • ANSWER:
      I am very skeptical about taking any sort of diet pills whatsoever. I saw an ad for the site, and I thought it was cheesy and looked fake.

      But I will say this – I looked at the ingredients list and was pleasantly surprised to find Yerba Mate on there along with Flaxseed Oil, Guarana, and a few other key ingredients to healthy weight loss. I’ve read a lot of research on Yerba Mate (a tea plant) and have ordered three bags of the tea that I got imported from Argentina. It’s called “The Drink of the Gods” and it lives up to it’s name. But the Pink Patch ingredients alone sold me, and I just purchased the product this morning. Also, Flaxseed Oil and Omega 3 fatty acids are both great for mild depression. I think this is the best approach to weight loss – one that has ingredients found in nature that won’t produce horrible side effects. Almost all of these ingredients can be part of your diet and found at the super market. I’ll let you know if I have any results in the next month or so, if you’d like!

  20. QUESTION:
    Any info on diet patches,do they work?
    I’m looking for something to get me started on weight loss.Has anyone tried these.Also hypnosis for weight control.

    • ANSWER:
      Forget the patches. I tried them and they don’t work. Just take one day at a time. Don’t look beyond one day. Start by eating no sugar, and carbs that aren’t good for you. White flour is bad. To maintain your weight This is the best advice you will ever receive and that is to eat smaller portions. You don’t have to diet if you do this. The hardest part with all of this is getting started. Just get through that first day. Just take one day at a time. It works.

    Sincere Answers Only PLEASE!!!
    Sincerely,
    QG18

    • ANSWER:
      Now whenever it comes to weight loss you should follow these simple steps that have helped me tremendously lose weight, pretty quickly if you ask me. And I’ve been trying to lose weight forever and finally found the correct system to help me out…

      The first thing you need to do is about 30 minutes of cardio everyday, try to get at least 3-4 days of that people…Exercising is one very important issue you don’t want to be lazy in.

      The second thing you should realize is that you cannot eat everything in sight that probably got you looking the way you are right now or the reason you want to lose weight. The pounds come with the food you eat. How do you stop yourself from eating and get a little boost with ousting fat from the food you eat? Simple…

      The third and final step is the correct natural weight loss supplement. For me, I found Proactol to be the best. Now this isn’t aimed towards lazy people that want to take a pill and sit on the couch all night and day. These are to tremendously help out with dieting and exercising. For me they were great because with my diet, they basically take out up to 28% of the fat you intake. Not to mention the killer appetite suppressant Proactol is. Every day you will fall under your calorie intake and find yourself one more day closer to your goal.

      These steps really worked for me, you should try them out for yourself even if you want to lose very little or that extra mile. Also at the time of my 3 month supply purchase of Proactol, I saved a lot of money on it at myweightlossgoals.com

      Good luck and I hope this helps you out for your weight loss goals.

  22. QUESTION:
    Weight loss (30 lbs)?
    I need to lose 30 pounds really quickly any suggestions on pills, diet patches, creams etc and please no insults or smart replies please just answer the question.

    • ANSWER:
      Healthy weight loss tips

      * Take one pound at a time
      Don’t get overwhelmed by how much weight you need to lose. Try to remember that “losing 15 pounds in two weeks” is nothing to celebrate. It is important to realize that the more quickly weight is lost, the more likely the loss is coming from water and muscle, not fat.

      Since muscle tissue is critical in keeping our metabolism elevated, losing it actually leads to a decrease in the amount of calories we can each day without gaining weight.

      Fat loss is best achieved when weight is lost slowly. Strive for a weight loss of no more than 3-4 pounds per week. One pound of weight is equivalent to 3500 calories.

      * Set Reachable Goals
      For instance, if you know you need to get more exercise, begin with a manageable goal of, say, walking 10 minutes a day that you know you can achieve. Then build your self-esteem by achieving the small goals you set yourself.

      The same logic applies for losing weight.

      * Stay off the scales
      Don’t get discouraged when your progress seems to be slow according to your bathroom scales. They do not provide a true measure of what is going on with the body.

      If exercise levels are adequate (5-7 days a week), you may be putting on muscle but losing fat, thus losing inches even if you are not losing pounds. It’s always a good idea to do several body measurements to have a second objective way to monitor progress.

      * Stay focused on being healthy, not thin
      # Many people become more successful at long term weight loss when their motive changes from wanting to be thinner to wanting to be healthier. Change your mindset to think about selecting foods that will help your body’s health rather than worrying about foods that will affect your body’s weight. The Food Pyramid offers a basic outline of the types and amounts of food you should eat each day to give your body the nutrients it needs for optimal health.

      * Fat Free?
      We’ve known for some time that limiting high fat foods in the diet can be helpful with weight loss. That’s because fats pack in 9 calories per gram compared to only 4 calories per gram from proteins or carbohydrates. To many, the message to limit fats implied an endorsement to eat unlimited amounts of fat-free products. Just to clarify, fat-free foods have calories too. In some cases fat-free foods have as many calories as their fat laden counterparts. If you eat more calories than your body uses, you will gain weight. Eating less fat will help you to lose weight. Eating less fat and replacing it with excessive amounts of fat-free products will not.

      * Drink plenty of water
      Drink eight glasses a day. Water is a natural appetite-suppressant. Nettle tea is a great weight-loss tea as it supports metabolism and has diuretic properties.

      * Reward yourself
      # Each time you reach a goal, such as losing 5 pounds, reward yourself with a gift or a massage.

      * Seek help if you need it
      # A big key in long term weight control comes from receiving encouragement and support from others. Find a friend to lose weight with or you can check to see if groups such as Weight Watchers, or eDiets offer programs and resources in your area by clicking the links. You may also wish to check with your local hospital to see if their registered dietician conducts group weight loss programs.

      * Watch your portions
      With the advent of “supersize” meals and increasingly huge portions at restaurants, our concept of normal serving sizes is a distant memory. Be mindful of the amounts of food you consume at a sitting. When necessary, divide your food in half and ask for a take home bag. It is all too easy to be a “plate cleaner” even when served enormous portions. Learn to pay attention to your hunger level and stop eating when you feel comfortably full, not stuffed.

      * Eat your food slowly
      Did you ever notice that thin people take an awfully long time to eat their food? Eating slowly is one method that can help take off pounds. That’s because from the time you begin eating it takes the brain 20 minutes to start signaling feelings of fullness. Fast eaters often eat beyond their true level of fullness before the 20 minute signal has had a chance to set in. The amount of calories consumed before you begin to feel full can vary significantly depending on how quickly you eat. So slow down, take smaller bites and enjoy your food.

  25. QUESTION:
    Weight loss plateau?
    I work out regularly, eat healthy, generally maintain a healthy lifestyle. However my weight loss has plateaued and I cant seem to do anything to get rid of 20lbs no matter how much I change up my work out routine or food. I think I would like to try herbal supplement, or diet pills to jumpstart my metabolism. Anyone know of any that actually work (ive seen ads for a pink patch, wu-yi oolong tea…etc). Has anyone tried any of these and recomend anything?

    • ANSWER:
      this happened to me too. just keep going the way you are, your body is getting used to your routines. Drink more water, that boosts you metabolism. summer’s on the way and that may help. also stress, if you have any try to ease it with a hobby( try a non work out hobby first, the point is to relax, unless working out does the trick)
      this worked for me, hope it works for you. good luck!

  26. QUESTION:
    Any health side effect for weight loss pills?
    For the past two months I exercise three times a week, at least one hour during each exercise, eat four times a day mainly fresh salad topped by chicken breast, shrimp, nuts, broiled fish, cheese, ect. Once a week I will have brown rice and twice a week I eat a piece of wheat bread in the morning. With all these effort, I still have trouble lossing fat from my belly.
    Now I am considering to take some fat burning pills. Is there any physical side effect with these pills. There are several kinds; Slim Form Hoodia/Patch, Green Tea Natural Fat Burn, Mega T Fat Burn….etc. What would be your experience with these diet pills?

    • ANSWER:
      Hello there! Well, if and only if you were to ask my opinion I wouldn’t get myself used to using diet pills. Yes, there are a lot of diet pills which are very effective, indeed. But once your body gets used to it, your body won’t metabolize on its own WITHOUT the diet pill you are using. Because what the diet pill does the digestion for the stomach. And without your diet pill your stomach won’t metabolize normally just like what it does BEFORE you started taking the diet pill. I hope somehow I was able to help you out. Happy new year… ^__^

  27. QUESTION:
    Nutritional supplements that assist with weight loss?
    I am 5’2″ and currently 172 pounds with a decently muscular build (under all the excess weight, that is…). My goal weight to get within the normal BMI range where I would be healthy is 136 pounds. I am not looking for any “quick fixes,” so please don’t bother recommending the pink patch, things like that. I have a diet and exercise plan worked out. What I am looking for is any suggestions – backed by research and/or experience – for vitamin or nutritional supplements that might assist me in the endeavor.

    I know I’m going to have to work at it, and I’ve heard of supplements that will increase your metabolism and things like that as long as you’re already changing your diet and exercise behaviors. Do any of these work? Are there any safe and all-natural appetite suppressants that could help with my cravings (I have a terrible sweet tooth)? I’m willing to try anything as long as it’s safe and not putting my body in danger. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You have a sweet tooth because you eat junk food. All you need to do is do a yeast cleanse, you can also take chlorophyll, blue green algae, and something for glucose support to control your blood sugars. You can also take a tsp of braggs apple sider vinegar before each meal to control the glycemic index level of the food you eat. Braggs is the only kind that works.

  28. QUESTION:
    Smoking cessation and weight-loss advice..Please!?
    I stopped smoking 2 months ago, and quit the patch 1 month ago. I’m a vegetarian, so my diet is restricted, but I’m still packing on the pounds. I also exercise daily. Whats the deal?? When will my system get back to normal? Is there anything else I can do?

  30. QUESTION:
    I am a fifteen yr old female, I’m 5’1″, and I weigh about 201 pounds. Can I get some advice for weight loss?
    I cried when I discovered this and want to weigh at least 99 – 105. I’m not doing any TV diets, and I have trouble with pills so those are out of the question. I want to know if it would be safe for me to go on the birth control patch because my mother (who was once in school to be a doctor) said it helps with weight loss.

I want to know if it would be safe for me to go on the birth control patch because my mother (who was once in school to be a doctor) said it helps with weight loss… And I’m not a fan of veggies. At most, I’ll eat a few potatoes and beans but that’s it.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey dont worry I used to be in the same boat, and also those tv diets dont usually work.
      I went from 231 to 160 from doing this.

      Drink iced water. Its good because your body burns cals trying to warm itself up.
      If you have to drink soda, coke zero or diet coke. Only 2cals.

      Eat negative cal foods. Celery cabbage lettuce carrots pickle pineapple apple orange tomato pepper brocoli cauliflower etc.

      Peppermints are best lollie if you have to. They can sometimes be an appetite suppresant.

      Foods to avoid, avacado, banana have natural fat, but its fat all the same and potatoes have lots of startch which isnt great. Ba Mince is also bad
      Best meats are fish, turkey and chicken but without skin.
      Try to stick to 800 cals a day, that may not seem like alot if you eat takeaways. But if you eat negative calorie food, then you can probably get away with eating the same amount of food but only costing you 500

      I hope this helps and msg me if you have questions :)

  32. QUESTION:
    Have you ever tried….?
    “The Pink Patch” which I think is from the company Curb Your Cravings. Its a weight loss patch that I have read into and seems much better then most garbage diet pills and programs. I have the hardest time losing weight, even with lots of excersizing and proper diet so I was looking for something to HELP… not do it for me. Thanks!!

    • ANSWER:
      What will help is eliminated fast food, soda, beer, candy, sweets, and fried food. What will also help is walking 40 minutes every day, five days a week.

  33. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know anything about this diet?
    I found this website http://applepatchdiet.com/ms15585/ and it promises weight loss through an herbal supplement patch. Has anyone tried it or is anyone familiar with the patch?

    • ANSWER:
      After a quick perusal, I saw this: Do not use the Apple Patch Diet if you are pregnant, nursing, diabetic, have problems with your thyroid gland, or have any other medical condition. Consult your physician before using this product.

      Not that it is of great concern. I specifically was looking for the instructions where all diet supplements say: use in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise routine or similar. It does come with a money back guarantee, so why don’t you try it? You can email me with the results. Meanwhile, I’ll stick with what works:

      Here’s all you need to lose weight and get healthy. First, you have to realize there is no quick, long lasting weight loss plan or pill that is going to do the trick. It’s purely mental. You have to learn to “Eat to live, don’t live to eat”. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? It is, if you understand that you are going to be reprogramming how you think about eating for the next few weeks. Old habits die hard, right? Not really. You get rid of bad habits by replacing them with good habits. If you learn to count your calories, keep calorie intake lower than output, exercise moderately, and eat only healthy food, you will lose weight. That’s a fact. All it takes is repetition. All success stories have this in common: The successful folks among us know how to be patient, persistent, and consistent. Set a goal and stick with it. The benefits of feeling good will outweigh any sense of sacrifice you might feel about having to push away that cake and ice cream. Here are some helpful and healthy links to help you get started on your way:

  34. QUESTION:
    Hoodia Patch, Scam or For Real?
    I’m a born skeptic so please forgive my natural apprehension, but I want to know about this weight loss thing called the hoodia patch.

    I have some major issues with swallowing pills so a patch would work best for me, and the nicotine patch helped me stop smoking, so why not give this a shot right?

    My neighbor Joesph says hoodia is all that, but I’ve tried other diet pills and haven’t been impressed.

    So all you in Yahoo Answers world what’s the deal with hoodia, and does the hoodia patch work as good as hoodia pills?

    I know there’s no magic product that will melt away fat, but I would like something that would at least help control my eating just a little.

    • ANSWER:
      I like that you said

      “I know there’s no magic product that will melt away fat, but I would like something that would at least help control my eating just a little.”

      This shows you have a reasonable expectation about the role any weight loss supplement will play in your dieting efforts.

      About your question. Is the hoodia patch a scam? In my opinion yes it is, and I’m not the only one who thinks so http://www.hoodia-gordonii-diet.com/hoodia-patch.htm

      The companies that make hoodia patches are just jumping the “patch” bandwagon, and you should not confuse with other products such as the nicotine patch which is the result of millions of dollars worth of research.

      All these patches rely on Transdermal technology http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transdermal_patch to time release medication into your body.

      With cheap products like the hoodia patch it’s doubtful that any hoodia would even be able to penetrate your skin and get into your blood stream.

      Hoodia does seem to be one of the more effective weight loss supplements to come along in a while, and I think it’s definitely worth a try, just go with pills or a liquid hoodia and avoid the hoodia patch.

  35. QUESTION:
    hair and weight loss in dog?
    I have a Shih Tzu cross of six years. For the past few years he’s sporadically lost patches of fur, at first it was on his chest, but after a course of steroids it cleared up. It would come back every few months, and we spent a fortune at the vets trying to find out what it was. It’s not mange, diet, allergies, or worms. We’ve had tests, skin scrapings, injections, shampoos and changed his diet numerous times.

    However now he’s lost the fur along his chest and back, and in the last few weeks his weight has plummeted even though his appetite hasn’t changed. at all. His brother from the same litter is not affected at all…I’m getting really worried…what could be wrong?
    Thanks, we’ve swapped vets twice…and or new vet we’re much happier with. But thanks for the input, it’s all very helpful. I shall be taking him this afternoon.

    • ANSWER:
      There is a possibility that your vet did not do a thyroid panel to check for Hypothyroidism, a common disorder, easily treated if caught early. Bilateral hair loss with or without itchy skin, weight gain or loss, puffy face especially around the eyes giving the typical “thyroid tragic Expression”, I call it the “thyroid look” and when you’ve seen it you know it.
      Most dogs when just beginning to have a thyroid problem act cold all the time, seeking warmer places to settle, and shivering when it doesn’t appear to be that cold to you.
      You can read more about it on
      http://www.merckvetmanual.com search Hypothyroidism
      It’s imperative to get a full panel run with the blood sent to Michigan State for a full analysis because most local labs only test T3 and T4 which does not give a fair and positive yes or no to the condition.
      The top researcher, Dr. Jean Dodds, recommends treating a low normal reading but most non-specialists vets do not (big mistake)

  36. QUESTION:
    Does this product really work…?
    My mom lately has been using stupid diet pills and other things to lose weight because she can’t stick to the basic eat right and exercise method and I found out that she now has these weight loss patches that you stick on your back and I was wondering do they really work? because I just wanna throw away all of the stupid weight loss things she’s bought and if those don’t work, then I’m getting rid of them. But you’re supposed to stick one on your shoulder blade and it apparently “takes the weight off”. Do they really work or should I throw them away before she hurts herself even more?

    • ANSWER:
      the only thing that REALLY works for lossing weight is eating right and working out…

      I dont think they’re gonna hurt her. shes going to have to realize that she is not going to loose weight if she dosent put any effort into it..

      i recommend you help her out. be her diet buddy…

      BTW.. i found that if i say tomyself that i am on a diet i never stick to it..so as long as i dont call it a diet i eat just fine.

  40. QUESTION:
    I need help losing weight & getting toned from those of you who have had success.?
    For the past 5 weeks I have been working out for 20 minutes to an hour and a half daily (I have skipped a day or two here and there). I have also been eating healthier like adding more fruits, vegatables, & whole grains to my diet and cutting back on unhealthy things, but not completely cutting those things out of my diet, just eating them in moderation. I don’t want to starve myself or deprive myself of the things I enjoy eating, otherwise I’ll crave them and get frutrated. I have been slowly losing weight, a pound or two a week, and can see a little difference in my waist line in addition to having more energy and feeling better about myself. But, I was wondering what I could do to see a little bit more results. Right now my workout consists of cardio and strength training, but mainly pilates. My goal is to lose 25 more pounds by April and look good in a bathing suit. Does anyone have any ideas that may help me out that have worked for you? Do thoses ab belt workout things seem to work? Have any of you tried them? I have heard that they are FDA approved and I was looking in to something like this to use at my desk at work since I have to pretty much stay at my desk while I’m at the office. Also, what about that patch thing? Does it really work? I know that there is no magic way to instantly have a great body. I know that I have to work hard to get it and I am willing to do that, I have already diciplined myself to workout daily and watch what I eat, I just waned something to give my weight lloss a little boost to help me reach my goal in addition to toning my muscles. Please let me know what has worked for you who have had weight loss success and/or toned up your body.
    I also just wanted to add that I have 3 children ages 2, 5, & 9. I vary my workout time & intensity around my family’s schedule. Sometimes I can only squeeze in 10-20 minutes in the morning, then I workout again in the afternoon and/or evening. I drink a ton of water & don’t drink any soda or juice. I have tried doing those colon cleanse things in the past with no results. I also eat smaller meals/healthy snacks throughout the day rather than 3 large meals. I have found that I don’t even have much of an appetite for larger meals and for sweets and junk food. If I have a chocolate craving I break off a piece of a Hersheys bar that’s been in my desk for the last couple of weeks. I’m doing all the things that I should be doing but just not seeing a lot of weight loss. I was hoping to lose 3-4 lbs per week. Thanks for your time to help me out!

    • ANSWER:
      The human body is incredible at adapting to change and stresses. However, this acts as a detriment to individual weight loss since the body adjusts to weight loss regimens and adapts to operate under the constraints of your diet and exercise. To combat your natural bodies tendency to adapt It helps to constantly mix up your routine so once your body starts to become familiar with a routine you change your current routine and your body has to adjust again. Doing things like splitting your workouts through out the day will force your metabolism to stay running more than twice as long than if you worked out once a day. Try doing a shorter workout in the morning or over lunch break and one after work or in the evening. Eating several small meals also keeps your metabolism more engaged throughout the day. Have you ever tried standing at your desk instead of sitting? If you can adjust your desk so you can work while standing you will also engage your metabolism throughout the day. I wouldn’t try any gimmicky weight loss equipment or supplements. The new or trendy weight loss or fitness thingy is only trendy for as long as it takes for the general public to realize its bullcrap. There will always be another gimmick to hold the publics attention. I would recommend to do the same things but the key is to mix up the intensity, frequency and duration every few weeks. Also, keep mixing up the cardio and strength training as these two disciplines compliment each other. Keep pushing yourself both physically and discipline wise and build or learn from what you have done before. The work you put in when out of your comfort zone is where the most change occurs. Best wishes.

  41. QUESTION:
    Hair loss, dry skin and weight gain after pregnancy?
    Anyone else experienced this? I recently stopped breast feeding and GP believes this is the contributor of weight gain but to be honest how can you pile on 14 lbs in 5 weeks with no change of diet? This also doesnt explain the bald patches either side of my head lol! I did lose my hair and gained a massive 28 lbs after my first born (it took 2 years to get back to normal) and I really dont want to go down that route again. Bloods have been taken and their testing for underactive thyroid, is this a possibility? or is this part and parcel of pregnancy?

    Nature is cruel isnt it, I think its making sure im soooooo unattractive that no one will impregnate again me for quite a while lol ;)

    • ANSWER:
      Honey, I’m so sorry, bet you’re feeling pants right now. Hair loss I’m not so sure about, but weight gain does make sense. Can someone tell me why you only hear of all of these problems AFTER you get pregnant, I knew nothing of these things prior to having my little girl!

  42. QUESTION:
    Is there a “trick” to get results from the pink patch?
    Howdy. So I bought into the gimmicks and got the free sample of the Pink Patch. I used the 6-day trial and noticed no difference in cravings or energy level. (I did have a little bit of trouble going to sleep which is very unusual.) No weight loss, in spite of pushing it extra hard at the gym, and watching what went into my mouth.

    So I thought maybe I didn’t use it long enough, so I let them send me the 30-day package. It’s 6 days into that (so that’s 12 days total with a 3-day break). I’ve not budged a single ounce. My diet is consistently healthy (tons of vegetables, rice, some fruit, low fat dairy, sufficient protein, lots of water), and I work out about 45 minutes daily doing appropriately paced cardio. So, all the elements are there. It seems like the patch may just be another piece quackery but before I throw in the towel, just want to throw it out there for input. I never use things (pills, supplements, etc.) like this, so willing to give it benefit of the doubt!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there. i like you bought into the system, but managed to cancel before the 30-days supply was ordered. And I like you had serious trouble trying to sleep! Infact for 6 days I was an insomniac, with about 2 hours poor sleep a night.
      As regards weight loss, I didn’t budge a pound either. Then I looked closer at the website and it said “use in conjunction with a healthy diet” so basically I think it is purely a placebo. You’ll just end up trying to eat healthy while using it and it’ll be that’ll lose the weight, not the patch itself.
      In my opinion you’ll be better off saving the £40 odd/month and using towards a gym membership cos it’ll be so much more worthwhile in the long run.
      Nice to hear of someone elses experiences with it.
      Good luck.

  43. QUESTION:
    what if i die?
    well im anarexic for 3 months now and Ive only lost 23 pounds but im still 258 pounds. I dont want to be it any more because im scared of dieing but its addicting. every week i drink my 48 hour mirakle diet detox, on top of that my Fenphedra, avakar slimming cream, plus my hoodia diet patch. when i eat to much when i can get away i throw it up not often though. I used to be a drug addict hooked on weed and so my doctor wont prescribe me any thing for weight loss but this stupid ass topamax which doesant work just makes me stupid. I dont know what to do im depressed and mad and sick and tired of living this life please give me advice PLEASE.

    • ANSWER:
      well it’s pretty obvious you have an addictive personality, you used to be hooked on illicit drugs and now you are hooked on a dangerous behavioral path. Suggest that what you need is a good therapist, one trained in addictive disorders, to help you deal with your issues and learn better more healthy ways to live.

  44. QUESTION:
    What are the components/ingredients in the Nexagen patch and their other products, and what is your opinion?
    Some friends of mine use this and swear by it, however, I am a bit more skeptical and like to do a bit of research on my own. So far, I’ve seen a few negative reviews of this stuff.

    I want to know exactly what’s in it, how it ‘works’, and what, if any, contraindications there are to it.

    Is it addicting? Is it essentially “legal speed”?

    Seems too good to be true and I’ve learned that, if that’s the case, it usually is.

    I guess I should add, please do not simply send me links to virus contaminated websites, or promote your own weight loss ideas/products. I’m not interested. I posted this same question in diet and fitness about and hour or two ago. Just thought this might be a better section. Thanks for any input you might have.

    I’m not interested in weight loss, just healthy energy boost and body systems regulation.

    • ANSWER:
      Generally speaking, weight loss patches are known as one of the biggest weight loss scams out there. They always contain the same types of products which are not necessarily proven to help weight loss, and probably aren’t even absorbed through the skin anyway. The makers are not legally required to prove their claims for this type of product, so they can say anything they want about them. Personally, I’d save my money.

I am not fat, but I have some “patches” of fattier areas on my body. Like my belly, sides of me belly, and inner thighs. I want to start running and my question is…. If I just run and do in general physical exercise, will I still lose fat off of areas that I am not specifically targeting? Like for example if I ran every day would I lose fat off the side of my belly? Or do I have to specifically target these areas to burn fat off them. Also any other weight loss tips would be great!!

    speed up your metabolism. I would just like to get a few things straight before anyone answers – I am NOT looking for a ‘quick fix’ or ‘easy way out’. I know that a calorie reduced diet and excersize is the only way to truly get a sustainable weight loss! I have a calorie controlled diet (around 1200 cals or less) and excersize DAILY – gym/swimming/running/dance. So no im not looking for a quick little ‘get fit quick’ thing, im just looking for something to maybe speed up the progress. and as my problem is giving into hunger pangs, im guessing these patches are the way forward? what do you guys think?
    1200 is NOT ‘far too low’ for me! 1200 is the number I got from my GP, due to my weight and height!

    food allergy help………………?
    i asked my doctor to refer me to an allergy clinic at a hospital but she wouldnt

    should i see another doctor?

    i think i have a wheat or gluten allergy or intolerance i could also have lactose allergy/intolerance

    ive been told you can see a specialist at an allergy clinic and they test your arm >skin patch test ive previously had 1 coliac blood test (as i had to specifically ask for it) but it came back negative

    so when i said that she was like oh well there's no need because that tests for wheat as well.

    im losing alot of weight but she said that wasnt from a food allergy but ive been told that it can cause weight loss.

    i showed her my itchy rash on my stomach and said i had just eaten wheat before coming for my appointment, and told her about pains in stomach i get, rashes, bloating, lethargy, gas, sometimes my lips get itchy if i eat cheese also, she never said anything.

    so basically she wouldnt refer me..whats the harm in referring me? its not expensive.

    id like to know either way for sure rather than just trial and error of removing gluten and wheat and lactose from my diet cos then ill never truly know.

    help plz :0I

    • ANSWER:
      OHHHH!!! Let me tell you that what you have described is EXACTLY how I felt before learning that I had Celiac Disease. I thought I had an allergy to milk, but my doctor (who was great!) sent me for some bloodwork and it came back positive for Celiac. I 110% believe that you should ask for a second opinion. Celiac is determined from a simply blood test. Very simple. And if it’s negative, then they can take a biopsy to make certain of the results.

      I had itchy rashes with tiny bubbles appear, terrible sharp stomach pains, bloating, and so forth also. However, I wasn’t able to see the connection between the foods i was eating at the very moment with the foods that I ate every day. Losing weight is definitely a sign of a gluten allergy, among many others that you are talking about.

      In the meantime (while searching for another doctor or pressing your current one for this requested bloodwork), do yourself a favor and grab a copy of Living Gluten Free for Dummies. This opened my eyes to so much about Celiac and it’s symptoms. You’ll learn that IF you do have a gluten allergy, once that is corrected, any intolerance to milk will go away because you’ve healed your intestine. It’s very informational. And if you are up for the challenge, take yourself off gluten and see how you feel! I noticed a difference after just one week of removing gluten from my diet!!! When it’s your health, it’s worth trying it. Like I said, it’s challenging, but if you do have the blood test and you do have Celiac, the only way to cure it is to get off any and all gluten. And that is only something YOU can do. There is no prescription, it’s all in your diet. So, essentially you can make the changes yourself, but it would be nice to know if you do or do not have the antibody that breaks down gluten in your system.

      There are a lot of things you CAN eat if you remove gluten from your diet, but just be forewarned that it’s difficult to see it from the other side of the fence, but in time you can find so many foods that you can eat. And don’t get overwhelmed with spending top dollar on everything gluten free – take your time and shop it out and in time you can help get yourself on track and hopefully you will notice a difference in how you feel!

      Best of luck, but YOU can do this on your own, and if you have any questions just drop me an email :-)

    Health Promotion and Wellness Programs: Top Health Risks

    By John Bates

    Obesity, tobacco use and stress are the most common hazards to health in the American workforce. In addition to the direct harm they cause to individual wellness, they also provoke many indirect issues related to health care.

    Weight loss and tobacco cessation are similar in that they both require behavioral modification and a comprehensive maintenance plan to curb the chances of a relapse. Staff qualifications should indicate training and experience adequate to deal with this type of psychology.

    Furthermore, weight loss and tobacco cessation programs have varying success rates across different demographics and within small groups; therefore, health promotion and wellness programs have to be tailored to fit individual needs.

    Before a diet and exercise plan can be implemented, a Health Risk Assessment is necessary to seek out pre-conditions for heart disease or stroke which could be compromised by the health promotion and wellness program.

    Exercise programs and nutrition education should be scientifically-based, drug-free and physician approved. Weight loss has to be the result of a balance between caloric intake, healthy meals and exercise.

    For resources and guidelines pertaining to obesity, nutrition, exercise and diet plans, consult: National Heart, Lung & Blood Institute
    Physical Activity Programming

    Encouraging people to exercise involves more than merely offering physical activity opportunities. Motivating employees includes acknowledging their present sedentary lifestyle and persuading them to make realistic and alternative lifestyle choices. The exercise program should be selected by the employee and offered during a time that is convenient for them in order to achieve a consistent participation rate.

    Education will be necessary to teach employees the relationship between activity, diet and health and to demonstrate how this can be changed to encourage physical wellness. Health promotion and wellness program supervision will be necessary to ensure that injury does not develop and exercise programs are introduced safely.

    Appropriate education in physiology, sports medicine or an equivalent and have a current CPR/First Aid certification should verify that health promotion and wellness programs are operated safely. The Health Risk Assessment should be checked to ensure the participant has agreed to a referral, elected exercise options and verified that there are no contravening health issues that preclude an exercise program.

    Staff should monitor heart rate and blood pressure to protect health promotion and wellness program goals during all intervention procedures. Safe exercise guidelines are offered by the American College Of Sports Medicine. Free Fitness Handouts and Fitness Posters can also be found at Wellness Proposals
    Tobacco Abuse

    Smoking cessation is one of the most difficult health risk issues to tackle because nicotine is considered to be one of the most addictive substances. In order to succeed, participants must want to quit. Preparation to quit, support with choosing a method to quit and visible proof of results need to be demonstrated. Counseling should be available for the participant at any time.

    Not all cessation programs work the same way with everyone. A qualified counselor should recognize individual differences and be able to match cessation programs with individual preferences. Diet plans, exercise programs, and activities that preclude smoking need to be presented as part of the cessation program. Relapses are common; therefore, a maintenance plan is mandatory. Nicotine substitution patches, sprays, gums or other medicinal options should be included in the counseling session to support cessation efforts.

    Guidelines and resources for cessation programs are plentiful. Some of the best offerings are presented at the Surgeon General’s website, The American Heart Association, The American Cancer Society, The American Lung Association, or Smoke Enders.

    For the purpose of tracking tobacco cessation success rate, the participants who began the program need to be the same ones who finished it. Maintenance parts of cessation should be recorded for a minimum of one year.
    Healthy Choices, Healthy Diet

    The Health Risk Assessment tests where nutritional education would benefit. With almost a seventy percent rate of obesity, the American workforce is in dire need of healthy food choice counseling. Health promotion and wellness programs promote better food choices by teaching participants how to identify low carbohydrate, lower calorie, high protein, and high fiber foods.

    Explaining the relationship between obesity and the escalating incidence of heart disease, Type II Diabetes and health care costs should help motivate participants

    Hi, i currently have a BMI of 41.5 and since January have lost 3 stone but i seem to have hit a wall over the last few weeks and although i have been sticking with the diet and exercise there has been little or no change in weight though these weeks. I have tried to see a dietitian at my doctor surgery but i haven’t actually been able to make an appointment. I also tried to make an appointment with the doctor and was told there was nothing for over a week! This is the reason i don’t bother going to my gp as i can never get away from work to visit them.

It’s a bit weird to look at and it does not hurt just looks strange. They come and go but sometimes they get pretty big I’m not sure what is wrong with me.

    I have a really poor diet could that be some kind of symtom?
    I have had a weight loss since I started working my new job to I went from 125 lbs to 112 lbs.
    I have no idea if any of that’s related.

    These spots have been like this for like over a year now close to 2
    Oh and I’m 20 years old.
    It’s not age spots.

      It just means you have a bad digestive system. I have these two and went crazy searching through websites on the internet and books to find out what they were. Drink tea to help your stomach digest better. Eat ginger to help make them go away.
