Keep a well balanced diet and make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need. Don't cut out exercise as it is very good for you. Weight lifting and other muscle building exercises can help you increase your body mass. ...Read more

Will walking help me lose weight faster than running?

Will walking help me lose weight faster than running?

No: That said, you will lose close to the same walking as running the same distance. But , running it takes less time. Also, you will still have metabolism going longer after the run than the walk. Now, you may be able to walk farther than you can run, so if you go farther you will burn more calories, even though you spent more time doing it. Your choice. Good Luck. ...Read more

Im 19 years old, 148lbs. & 5'3". I started to run on & off since may @ 145lbs. & gained those 3lbs. What will really help me lose weight fast?

Im 19 years old, 148lbs. & 5'3". I started to run on & off since may @ 145lbs. & gained those 3lbs. What will really help me lose weight fast?

Exercise and diet: They have to go hand and hand, with a normal bmi you don't qualify for prescription appetite suppressants or bariatric surgery. If you want to lose more body fat drink only water, eat only lean protein, vegatables, and fruits, avoid sweets, fried foods and processed carbs (breads, pasta, rice) and watch your total caloric intake. And keep exercising of course. There's no magic bullet. ...Read more

Keep a diary and have a plan, or better yet, seek out a personal trainer or a nutritionist that can help guide you. You may want to also cross-train.

If I do about 2-2 1/2 hours running each day plus an hr or two at the gym will I lose weight?

If I do about 2-2 1/2 hours running each day plus an hr or two at the gym will I lose weight?

Very likely ...: ... but it also depends on what you eat. Some people say, "I work out so I can eat anything!", but that isn't really true or healthy. And how could you possibly have time to spend 3.5 to 4.5 hours a day working out and running unless you are a professional athlete and that is your job!? That much exercise could easily result in injury or overuse problems. Eat sensibly and work out an hour a day:) ...Read more

Can running 2 miles twice a day help me lose weight!?

Can running 2 miles twice a day help me lose weight!?

It will help a lot: A combo of aerobic (cardiovascular) +weight bearing (build muscles) exercises along with proper/balanced diet is probably the best, but some is better than nothing. 4 miles/day=awesome. Minimize sodas, juices, pizza, donuts, brownies, cookies, truffles, ice cream, lattes, beers/liquor, and the evil of chips... So, be sensible. Keep on running and stay healthy. Don't forget to sleep well. Good luck. ...Read more

Could a teenager lose weight in 8 weeks by running on a treadmill each day?

I have been eating one meal a day for about 8 months and running daily. How can I increase how much eat while continue to lose weight?

Eat and lose weight: Eating one meal a day will actually make it harder to lose weight. That will actually slow your metabolism down. Eating 3, or even 5 small meals a day is much better believe it or not. You can have 4 small meals/snacks throughout the day and have a high protein & vegetable meal at the end of the day. The frequent meals tends to speed up your metabolism (just don't over eat). Keep up the exercise! ...Read more

Can you help? Could running 1 mile (100 calories) per day be a productive way to lose weight?

Can you help? Could running 1 mile (100 calories) per day be a productive way to lose weight?

Depends: Losing weight usually requires making changes in what and how much you eat. Being active helps, but burning an extra 100 calories/day probably won't make much difference. Though, it might prevent you from gaining more weight. If you're not used to exercising, start small with the idea that you'll gradually increase the intensity or duration of the activity. It's a good habit to get into. ...Read more
