How long will it take to lose 30 pounds if I don't eat red meat and walk 2 miles everyday?

How long will it take to lose 30 pounds if I don't eat red meat and walk 2 miles everyday?

You may have to look closely at calorie intake and 'not just stop red meat'. Perhaps a 1300-1500 kcal/day 'meal plan' will net you the weight loss you desire. It is a great idea to 'walk 2 miles a day'. Good job! ...Read more

Can you tell me how long it should take to lose 10 pounds with a healthy easy diet and exercise?

1000 not enough: 1000 calories is borderline dangerous for your body and may trick your body into thinking it is starving. It's unlikely you can get enough healthy nutrients at 1000 cal, plus you may not lose weight as quickly. Consider going to at least 1200 cal/day. If you have a typical metabolism, then you will likely lose about one pound/week. This is a healthy rate of weight loss. ...Read more

That is hard to say: Because this is a recipe for self- sabotage. You will lose a great deal of muscle with such a low caloric intake. Your body will also go into starvation mode. So your metabolic rate will slow way down. It will then become very hard to burn calories and very easy to put on weight. ...Read more
