Im fat and i need a diet plans any idea?

See Dr., and then...: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and leafy green lettuce (little or no salad dressing). When buying fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but do avoid sugar and simple starch calories. ...Read more

Any suggestions for getting and staying motivated to reach my weight loss goals?

Two mirrors: Imagine two mirrors. One is the mirror one year from now where you lost the weight. On the other side the mirror where you stay the same or keep gaining. Look yourself in the eye in each mirror. Fast forward 5 years from now. Thin on one side, overweight on the other. Then 10 years. Then 20. Look at your face, your clothes, your room. Which one do you want to be in 20 years? Then do it. ...Read more

Yes, it: You eat fewer total calories than you burn off. It's 3500 calories to the pound. Soups don't have much fiber or other nutrition, however, and can contain a lot of salt, which may not be good for you. Check w/a dietitian and eat a well-balanced diet plus exercise. ...Read more

Starting a new healty lifestyle eating exercise etc,5'7" 220lbs now, want to get to a healthy weight and keep it that way.Advice?

Exercise etc.: Good thinking. For optimal exercise i would recommend you see a trainer if you have time and can afford it. Go to Body Mass Index (BMI) on the web and see where you are. You need to gradually get down to about a BMI of 25. Also go online to "NuVal" and plan your diet through that program. Take your time losing weight or you will quickly reagin it if you don't. ...Read more

What's a good diet and fitness plan for weight loss?

What's a good diet and fitness plan for weight loss?

Weight loss: Any quick weight loss tends to be followed by weight gain. The best solution for weight loss is a long term change in diet. However there are some quick ways to jump start your weight loss such as fasting or cleansing. Raw foods only for 3-5 days, the 17 day diet, and the master cleanse to name a few. In general 30-90 minutes of exercise daily with caloric restriction to 1000 or less. ...Read more

What are some tips for maintaining weight once you've lost a good amount? I'm eating a paleo diet but want to introduce regular food once I hit my goal. I find maintaining to be the hardest part.

What are some tips for maintaining weight once you've lost a good amount? I'm eating a paleo diet but want to introduce regular food once I hit my goal. I find maintaining to be the hardest part.

Diet: Losing weight is difficult but I believe that keeping weight off is more difficult. Calories do count and if you want to maintain your new weight you will have to restrict your daily calorie intake to about 1000-1200 calories unless you perform extremely vigorous work in your daily activities. I feel it's very worthwhile to meet with a dietician who will evaluate you and recommend a proper diet. ...Read more

Consult with your OB: In general, it is not recommended that one lose weight or diet during pregnancy. Carrying a baby means providing him or her with all of best nutrients for development and growth. Dieting and losing weight would likely rob him or her of some of these nutrients. Consult with your ob, family doctor, or a registered dietician for specifics. ...Read more

Im looking for a work-out and diet plan that really works to lose the baby belly and the last 15 lbs?

No fads: In my opinion, you're thinking about this wrong. Diets (short term caloric restrictions) do not result in weight loss that is maintained. Subtle but sustainable changes to your diet (what you eat every day) can have life-long results. Make subtle changes to what you eat to take in fewer calories per day and increase your activity to burn more. You should not shoot to loss more than 1 pound/week. ...Read more

Want to tone up my stomach and lose weight in my thighs. Need some good exercises for this?

Cardio Mix: You can not target the abdomen or thighs specifically for weight loss - if you have adipose tissue to lose , then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with walking, running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more
