Also remember, you cannot exercise your way to weight loss! ...Read more

Are eating complex carbohydrates better for weight control than simple carbohydrates like rice?

Carb Quandry: Some "complex" carbs (brown rice, whole wheat) are metabolized slowly and are better for weight management but ultimately if you consume more calories than you need you will gain weight. Reduce all carbs, especially simple carbs (white bread, rice or pasta). Eat frequent (6) small meals a day. Exercise vigorously for about 150 min a week, drink plenty (60 oz) of water and get 8 hours of good sleep. ...Read more

Is it better to have dessert in the morning than in the evening with regard to weight control?

Weight Control: Think of food as fuel. If you pair your food with your activity then rather than store calories in fat you will tend to burn calories for work. Simple sugars are quickly available to the body so if you eat them and relax or go to sleep your body will tend to store the extra calories until you have work without food. Eating most of your calories earlier in the day to use while active is best. ...Read more

What to eat for dinner for weight control if I only eat one meal?

Not a good idea: Not many can lose weight eating just dinner - however good your selection. As your glycogen store gets depleted during the day, your body shifts to burn alternate fuel and process your intake differently. It is best to have the more substantial meal during the day, > 9 hours before your bedtime. Have a light meal at night to avoid going to bed with a full stomach and have snacks during the day. ...Read more

If I take Super Multi, Immune Detox, Super Immune 1 & Blood Sugar/Weight Control (3x's daily of each) considered to much?

But frankly, I got a little blown away just looking at how long this list was. My guess is that most of these contain many different substances. You may be getting significant overlay of contents.

Weight training (mornings), a negative energy balance (diet), now adding cardio at 65% of my max hr for 45 min (evenings) for a desired body fat of 5%?

You will...: Burn muscle as well as lose body fat. Personally, not a desirable approach. The elist football players I see at ut have body fat measurements in the 7% range (not linemen, obviously). 5% is somewhat extreme. Also, your cardio at 65% maximal heart rate is too low to improve cardio fitness. Therefore I assume that your sole goal is extreme leanness to the point of......? ...Read more

You calculate your daily caloric intake and once you go beyond your bmr, energy is stored. If you exercise you expend calories. So if you walk an hour a day at brisk pace, you may burn 300 calories. This would help you loose weight by staying under your bmr. I hope this helped! ...Read more
