Short answer, yes:
Restricting caloric intake always works. It's just so hard to do.
Most people do better with a balanced diet, perhaps with less carbohydrates and more protein than usual 'healthy diets' (think South Beach Diet or slow carb diets). You will be better off doing both the diet and exercise, especially resistance (weight lifting) training. Increase your muscle mass (even a few %) and its easier... ...Read more

Gym at my complex and free weights were just added. I'm ecstatic but need a work out plan to lose weight. Advice/tips?
Tried everything to lose weight with no luck, i stuck to nomore than 900cals a day & gym every other day, did not lose weight, stopped & put it on!
Too few calories: 900 calories is too few. You are like an anorexic and your body goes into starvation mode and slows down your metabolism. You need to eat at least 1200 calories a day divided into three meals of 400 calories each. Going to the gym is great- keep it up, but you must eat a reasonable amount of calories in order for your body not to reduce its metabolism to a very low rate and halt weight loss. ...Read more

I had an apendicectomy 10 days ago and I've lost some weight (I lift weights at gym) and I feel thin now. So my question,is it normal to lose weight?
Yes: Even after relatively minor abdominal surgery (I presume you had a laparoscopic appendectomy) your digestive tract/appetite/bowel function is disrupted. Many people just don't feel like eating for a few days. Eat as much as you are comfortable with and notice when your bowel function returns to normal. You may need a little extra of your usual healthy diet to slowly regain to your desired weight. ...Read more

Battle won at table: It is fine to exercise as part of a weight reduction plan.However, the most progress is made by realistic choices at the dinner table. A nine year old is best served by group activities such as soccer, scouts, hiking & similar outside activities; all that would keep a kid busy & occupied. Nine year old kids get bored easily & i doubt any stair climber would suit their needs. ...Read more

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
