I really need to lose weight and was thinking of a juice diet. Any recommendation?

Healthy Lifestyle: Fad diets do not work. No one can stay on them for the rest of their life & be healthy. Juice is just sugar & some vitamins & you are missing out on important nutrients. The weight you lost (usually just water weight) will come back. The best way to lose weight & keep it off is to develop a healthy lifestyle of eating 3-5 mini meals a day of nutritious foods & to exercise (any activity you like!). ...Read more

I seriously need to lose weight. Is Atkins a good choice? I tend to eat a lot of carbs so i believe that adds to my weight.

Better choices: We are all genetically unique so there is no single diet perfect for everyone. But most people will lose weight by minimizing high-glycemic foods like grains, sugar & potatoes (see http://www.Glycemicindex.Com/) & avoiding fried/fatty foods. Emphasize vegetables & fruits, beans, organically raised eggs & meats & wild seafood. Dairy, nuts seeds & whole grains can be eaten in moderation.See comment:. ...Read more

My personal trainer told me to cut carbs including fruit to lose weight. I thought fruits would help with weight loss. Is it true that I should cut it?

My personal trainer told me to cut carbs including fruit to lose weight. I thought fruits would help with weight loss. Is it true that I should cut it?

Trainer's wrong: Eat a healthy well-balanced diet, just eat less than you burn off. There's no magic food. You don't want to restrict or increase any of the three: protein, carbohydrate or fat, as all have important functions. Personal trainers generally don't have any formal nutritional education; that's why their trainers, not dietitians. See a dietitian for more expert advice. ...Read more

I am on a diet and doing more excercise to lose some weight. Is it ok to have 1 day a week of eating whatever i want?

Recipe to success: Gotta look at the big picture. Weight loss requires that calories burned exceed calories consumed. If you ate a large number of calories on that one day of the week - it could end up cancelling out days when you had a more moderate intake. It is up to you. Be well. ...Read more

I want to either lose weight or get muscle and lose fat so are there any excercises for getting a 6 pack and how long will this take? What should my daily calorie intake be?

Strength exercises: In general building lean muscle with strength and core exercises will provide better overall weight control because lean muscle burns more calories than fat. How long this takes will depend on how aggressively you exercise. In general maintaining a low carb/high fiber and high protein diet is best. Consume about 10-12 calories per pound of your desired weight. This is only an estimate. ...Read more

What do you think of The Virgin Diet and decreasing sugar and what would be a minimal sugar have per day to see possible weight loss? AmHypothroid?

What do you think of  The Virgin Diet and decreasing sugar and what would be a minimal sugar  have per day to see possible weight loss? AmHypothroid?

Fewer calories: I don't know the details of the Virgin diet but it appears to be a variation on a low carbohydrate diet. Weight loss occurs when you take in fewer calories than you burn up. There is no magic to this formula. Since fats tend to increase satiety more than carbohydrates, by eating more fats and less carbs, most people end up eating fewer calories and therefore lose weight. ...Read more
