I stopped eating meat when will i lose weight?

I stopped eating meat when will i lose weight?

You may not-depends: Research shows that on average vegetarians consume 500 less calories a day than meat-eaters & this will lead to weight loss, but it depends on the details of your diet. If you eat lots of french fries, sodas & ice cream you might be vegetarian but won't lose weight. Eating lots of vegies and limiting sugars & grains will help.

Exercise & eating: The best way to lose is to eat in a way that is healthy for you that you will continue for the rest of your life. Diet pills are just a temporary solution.

Wise to reduce bread: Most experts would agree that avoiding bread helps people to lose weight- it is wise to minimize starches, esp. Those that raise blood sugar as much as bread does. However, sweet potatoes have many useful nutrients and don't raise blood sugar nearly as much as bread or white potatoes, so i see no need to cut them out- see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=foodspice&dbid=64 for more info. ...Read more

I'm trying to lose weight. How much protein should I eat daily? I'm 104 kg now and most numbers on diet sites feel too high to reach. I hate meat.

Diet: This requires willpower. Drink three or more 8 ounce glasses of water daily, eat three balanced meals leaving the table satisfied but not feeling completely full. Eliminate all soft drinks, all snacks, limit alcohol intake and exercise aggressively, using anaerobic exercises or walking at least 3-5 miles a day and you will begin to lose weight, but you must be patient because it may take time. ...Read more

I am 31 weigh 180 if I stop eating meat and starch for four months will it help me to loose weight I'm only want to loose 45 pounds?

Not practical: Several facts about weight loss: Trying to loose more than 1-2 pounds a week is not advised and is generally unhealthy. Studies suggest that the most important thing is to limit the amount of calories on a daily basis. Cutting out meat per se won't accelerate weight loss. A low-carb diet is not significantly more effective than a normal diet. Go to http://bit.ly/1ybbG2S ...Read more

How to do intermittent fasting? I am starting today. I was thinking of not eating anything all day except at 12pm ill eat a chicken patty. And thats it. Would i lose weight?

How to do intermittent fasting? I am starting today. I was thinking of not eating anything all day except at 12pm ill eat a chicken patty. And thats it. Would i lose weight?

Why?: Total fasting is likely the worst way to lose weight since most of the weight you will lose will be water and fasting cannot be sustained. It would be more effective and healthier for you to limit your fat and carb (plus total calories) intake plus exercising regularly . With your current program, you will likely end up with a heavier weight once the fasting has stopped. ...Read more
