Help please! is eating only 1000 calories a day and walking going to make me lose weight?

Any exercise: Any exercise particularly weight training would help. However a 1000 calorie-diet is difficult to maintain for long and thus you may consider a more moderate approach for long-term benefits. You may lose a lot (mostly from water loss) with this extreme diet but will likely gain even more weight after you stop dieting. ...Read more

Can detox help me lose weight?I want to lose weight so bad because im near to overweight.. Is it ok to  drink fruit juices only for atleast one week?

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more

Is it healthy to practise the Atkins diet and is it guaranteed to make me lose some weight. Please answer and over what period of time?

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

I take many tablets each day. Is it possible that there is a reaction between them that causes me to not lose weight (e.g. liquid diet (<700 cal/day)?

I take many tablets each day. Is it possible that there is a reaction between them that causes me to not lose weight (e.g. liquid diet (<700 cal/day)?

Not likely: While there can always be some sort of interaction, it isn't likely to lead to such a significant metabolic effect that you wouldn't lose weight with the extreme caloric restriction you describe. If you are not losing weight on a 700 kcal/day diet, something is amiss with your calorie counting. At 700 kcal/day you should be losing weight, even if you didn't move one bit during the day. ...Read more
