When you exercise, do you lose a lot of weight or just maintain the same weight?

When you exercise, do you lose a lot of weight or just maintain the same weight?

Can do both: But exercise alone without a caloric restriction, is more likely to "maintain" a weight rather than lose a lot of weight. Unfortunately, it's a lot easier to cut out several hundred calories per day than it is to increase your physical activity levels by a several hundred calories per day! ...Read more

Can peeing a lot make you lose weight?

Can peeing a lot make you lose weight?

No.: Voiding will allow you to lose a small amount of water weight, but unless you stop drinking fluids or are a patient on diuretics, the weight will be replaced. More importantly, urine production is unrelated to the metabolism of the muscle and fat which are more important in maintaining a healthy weight. Make sure you consult a doctor before starting on any risky or unproven diets. ...Read more

Does drinking a lot of water really help you to lose weight?

Does drinking a lot of water really help you to lose weight?

No Unless Stops Food: The only possibly valid issue for some is that stomach fullness (doesn't last long with water) might decrease the amount they eat. The controlling issue is the amount of food & what type, not calories per-se. Sugars/carbs most rapidly stored as fat, protein moderately so, natural fats the least stored as fat.

Could you tell me if i work out doing lunges and bulgarian squats with weights will it make me lose weight?

Weight loss: Achieving a healthy and maintainable weight requires exercise and diet. You must expend more calories than you consume to lose weight. If you do not watch what you eat you can still gain weight despite your work outs. I would also recommend adding some type of cardiovascular exercise 4-5 times per week such as walking, jogging, bicycling or swimming to burn the calories. ...Read more

Can doing 500 squats a day help me lose fat or get bigger because of muscles?

Can doing 500 squats a day help me lose fat or get bigger because of muscles?

Unlikely: It is extremely difficult to loose fat from a localized area of body by excercising. By following regular exercise and healthy diet it is possible to loose weight and body fat, but not in a specifc body part as such. If you want to concentrate on one muscole group for some reason then you can possibly resort to exercising specific group of muscles and strengthen them. I hope that helps Good Luck ...Read more

How fast will you lose weight using something like the gym ball weight loss workout?

How fast will you lose weight using something like the gym ball weight loss workout?

Weight loss: Exercise in the gym can vary as intensity changes. Good vigorous exercise may burn between 400 and 800 cal/hr but that is very vigorous exercise indeed. 1 pound of fat is equivalent to 3500 cal so you can do the math and see that it will take roughly 7 days of intense exercise to lose 1 pound of fat. Some of your short-term weight loss may be just fluid shifts and not represent true weight loss. ...Read more

If i start putting weight training into my routine. Will this make me gain weight or lose body fat?

If i start putting weight training into my routine. Will this make me gain weight or lose body fat?

Possibly both: Weight training can lead to increased muscle mass which can increase your basal metabolic rate, so that you ultimately lose body fat. Increased muscle mass can potentially add to your weight, but if weight training is part of a fitness program which includes improved diet and cardiovascular exercise, you will likely lose weight over the long term. ...Read more

Will that make you gain weight if you don't eat the recommended amount of calorie intake while losing weight?

Will that make you gain weight if you don't eat the recommended amount of calorie intake while losing weight?

Maybe: If you constantly eat too little your body can go into a survival mode thinking that food is not avialble and reduce your metabolism. Generally when on a weightloss program, the set calories are an average per day (you may go over one day & under one) but try to stay close to the suggested amount so your body does not think it is being starved. ...Read more

Are mini-weight loss goals effective when I want to lose a lot of weight?

Are mini-weight loss goals effective when I want to lose a lot of weight?

Yes: Successful dieting requires that a person stick to a plan for months or years, so easier goals & small milestones are good. He must be happy with the foods he gets to eat, so severe calorie restriction is usually unsuccessful. One can cut back on calories enough to lose 1-2 pounds a week, and he will be more likely to stay with that modest type of plan. One-two pounds a week is 50-100 pounds/year! ...Read more

If i start eating healthy and wearing a waist trimmer that makes you sweat more while exercising will i lose water weight and fat or water weight only?

Most waist trimmer: belts are made of a rubber substance (Neoprene) and promote sweating where applied.Yes, there is more sweating/loss of water, but the amount is small and does not contribute significantly to weight loss. Your healthy eating plan, especially if you have a modest calorie deficit each day, is much more likely to result in weight loss including fat, water, and hopefully not too much protein.
