I a man overweight and have been losing weight but not fast enough. Can I please go to 500 calories and moderate exercise every day. Will this make me lose weight and how do I keep it off?

I a man overweight and have been losing weight but not fast enough. Can I please go to 500 calories and moderate exercise every day. Will this make me lose weight and how do I keep it off?

No easy way: There is 1 formula for losing weight: Limit calorie (carb) intake and exercise daily. How you go about those 2 elements is up to you. If you starve yourself (500 cal /day) your body will go into hibernation mode and you won't lose weight. You have to eat in order to lose weight! Once you get to you goal (it may take years), there is no letting up. Keeping it off requires ongoing diet & exercise! ...Read more

Will i lose weight jucing every other day?

Will i lose weight jucing every other day?

Well. that depends: If you drank only large quantities of juiced fruit you could actually gain weight. If you drink primarily fresh, organic juiced vegetables that can be quite healthy. Be aware that you will be minus the fiber if you use a juice extractor but will still have the fiber with a whole food juicer. Your intake would be more balanced if you add something such as rice protein powder. Please don't juice >. ...Read more

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

You are just fine: Your bmi comes out to 25.8 which is perfectly normal especially for a person that plays sports.

I had a baby about a month ago and i want to lose weight, but my newborn sleeps every 2 hours. How do I exercise while keeping up my home.?

Housework + Baby = : Exercise! learn how to use the "football hold" or "colic carry" from a nursery nurse, & you'll have at least one free hand & 2 legs for zumba. Nursing burns calories, so eat at the very least 1500 cal/day. See www.Aap.Org parent handouts (healthy child section) for tips on putting her in her crib on her back, drowsy but awake, so she'll self-calm & consolidate sleep by 4 mos. Nap when she naps. ...Read more

Dieting weakness: I would recommend a healthy high protein low carb low glycemic diet. Make sure you eat adequate protein before trying to exercise. Your weakness experienced when you exercise may be from improper intake of food before exercise. Start slow with exercise even just walking 20 minutes a day then build from there. ...Read more

I am 198 lbs. Every time i exercise, i end up straining something in my body. I also lose weight only in my legs, arms, and face. How can I loose belly fat?

Nutrition: The problem with 'belly fat' is that it's so easy to gain it and so hard to lose it. Try to focus on nutrition first, and avoid carbs like bread, rice, potato, pasta, and desserts. For exercise, try to work on getting cardio fitness rather than weight training. As you burn more calories and eat healthier, the mid-section body fat will slim down. ...Read more
