Diet food programs that cause fastest loss?

No such thing: I'm afraid no diet program promotes rapid or good weight loss. The best weapons to use in losing weight are healthy, balanced meals and regular exercise. There are several commercials on tv that promote success stories with weight loss, but to be honest, no program is successful unless you change your eating habits for the rest of your life, vs. Just a short term diet. ...Read more

Any 30-day diet food programs you can think of?

Eat less + exercise: There are a huge number of diet programs. Most emphasize high quality foods like vegetables. Any diet that actually reduces your caloric intake to less than you burn in a day will work. It's not the diets that are in question, it's our ability to follow them long enough to get results. Weight watchers has a nice online program that my patients like, but do any diet that you feel good on and can do. ...Read more

Any 30-day diet food programs for rapid weight loss?

No safe ones: Crash diets can produce rapid weight loss but often are lacking in essential nutrients.

I have tried many programs for diet, I lose 7kg since one year, but since that time I did not loose any killo more!so what should I do?

Weight?: To lose weight, you must eat and exercise. Weight loss is 70% diet. What most do is eat less. Yes, they lose weight but it's all muscle they are losing. The idea is you want to retain muscle and lose fat. Yes? That will take a great committment. Create a diet with 60 % protein, 25% carbs (most of those being fiber) and 15% fats (healthy fats). Eat a meal every 3 hours to keep metabolism up. ...Read more

How often should you add more to your diet if you're doing a strength training program and how much weight?

Eat better not more: Strength doesn't come from carbo loading, high calories, protein packing or other fads & trends. Improve your diet, try eating smaller meals more frequently, and balance activities to reduce injury risks and overuse. Sleep, breathe, enjoy! push yourself enough to feel aching without ripping or residual pain. Focus on form so your strength is more functional. Target a healthy life-long weight goal. ...Read more
