I want to loose 10-15lbs, 25 yrs old, weight 130lbs and 5'1". I have been doing insanity workout for a month, why i'm not loosing weight and no results?

Muscle weighs more than fat. How about trying a different approach - body measurements? You may be losing inches but not weight. Always remember to drink at least 8 - 8 ounce glasses of water per day. Good luck ! ...Read more

At 169cm, 54kg, I've trouble to gain weight. I hv normal food consumption n still struggling to reach ideal weight. Is there any shortcut for it?
Sounds okay to me!: "ideal weight" is subscience and entertainment; even the body mass index was never intended for individuals, and the new studies show "overweight" healthier with fewer deaths from each category. Your best weight is what looks and feels best to you while you can keep up with peers at the fitness activities you enjoy. And many women love a slim slim, "ripped" man. ...Read more

A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more
