Hi, I am 18 yrs old and weigh 112kg :-[. .. I am from india and my staple diet is rice. Can u suggest some measure for me to lose weight.

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done (weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/ (depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more

Hi, 5'5 and 180 lbs I'm trying to lose weight and be around 150 lbs how many calories do I need to eat. I'm cutting out sugar and rice and flour. I also work out in the gym. I have trouble balancing.?

It depends.: I would aim for around 1500-1600 calories for weight loss, though it depends on how active you are. While cutting out sugars and starches can be helpful there are other high calorie foods. I recommend finding an online calorie tracker (there are many apps for apple and android (methyltestosterone) phones) that also allows you to account for exercise. It's easy to underestimate how many calories you consume. ...Read more
