Dilute juice, +fiber: Drinking juice beverages (with or without fiber) can help with weight loss only if they don't increase the total amount of calories eaten per day. For example, mixing water with powdered fiber to make a drink will cause a person to feel fuller and have less appetite (can be helpful). However, mixing fiber with undiluted juice will give a person lots of sugar calories along with fiber (won't help)! ...Read more

If I walk 30 minutes daily at 5 km/h, will it be useful for weight loss? And if no, what is the recommended practice to get result?

Distance not time: Walking is an excellent exercise. The speed is not as important as the distance. At 5 km/h for 30 min you will walk about 2.5 km (1.5 mile). Depending on your size, you will burn about 120-180 calories. To lose 1 lb you need to burn 3500 calories. I generally recommend walking 15 miles (24 km) per week in order to lose weight. ...Read more

Can walking 3 days a week for 1-2 hours be as beneficial as 30 minutes daily for weight loss along with a healthy diet?

Can walking 3 days a week for 1-2 hours be as beneficial as 30 minutes daily for weight loss along with a healthy diet?

Walking: 30 minutes of daily exercise is probably better than 1-2 hours occasionally. However, walking really won't do much for you. 30 min of real cardio exercise that gets you to maintain a target heart rate for 20-30 min is very effective for weight loss. Walking doesn't get you anywhere near this. You don't need to do 1-2 hrs or cardio either. Just 20-30 min daily will be great. ...Read more

Not a good eating: Habit. It helps to eat a balanced diet in small amounts during the day. Eating one big meal at night is more likely to lead to the excess calories being stored as fat. If any thing your last meal for the day should be the smallest. It would be good to consult a nutritionist or your doctor for on-going care and advice. ...Read more

Over a week, that should lead to 3, 500kcal loss or approximately 1 pound weight loss which is considered safe. Rather than try to achieve 10 pound loss over short period of time which is also nonsustainable, aim for slow but steady. Think tortoise, rather than hare. Marathon, not sprint. ...Read more
