Poop Out Burned Fat
3500: You have to have a deficit of 3500 calories to lose a pound. Let's say you require 2000 cal/day to maintain your current weight. You ingest 1800 calories and burn an extra 300 through exercise. That will result in a deficit of 500 calories. Do this every day (500 cal x 7 days), and you will lose one pound/week. ...Read more
If I only ate 300 calories and drank a lot of water each day would I lose weight and burn fat from working out faster?
Yikes!: Only 300 calories a day would be very hard to manage long term- it's practically starvation! Likely to be very hard to stick with and I bet you'd be too fatigued to work out effectively. I would be less drastic. Try a healthy balanced diet with mild caloric restriction over the long term, this is much more likely to produce lasting success. Remember, slow and steady wins the race! ...Read more
I lost 70 pound of fat, then gained 10 pound of muscles.now im 16% BF. should i liposuction 6%bf?i tied to lose the remaining 15 pound but couldnt!
I don't recommend it: Liposuction is only useful for body sculpting. In other words, it is not useful for changing your overall body fat amount, only the shape the fat takes on your body. If you lost 60 pounds, you may actually benefit from plastic surgery to cut away your excess skin to have a better appearance. You are on a medicine which can hamper weight loss. Consider talk to doc about possible med change? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Diet and exercise: Truly count calories, everything you put in your mouth, and cut that back to healthy normal amounts. Some advocate cutting out white bread and limiting carbs, and remember that alcohol has calories. Healthy amounts of exercise. You cannot otherwise target belly fat (without surgery). And, fyi, the average tummy tuck I do removes about 2-2.5 lbs of skin and fat. ...Read more
When eating something what makes you fat besides calories? Trans fat. Sugar saturated fat calories from fat. etc...?
Not enough activity: The simple formula which determines if you gain or lose weight is Calories taken in minus Calories used. Taken on a day to day basis, you can know if you are using up the calories or not. If calories eaten far exceeds calories burned up by whatever activity, weight is gained. It does not matter if the calories are fats proteins or carbohydrates, body chemistry turns the excess into fat to store it ...Read more

Belly Fat B Gone: It depends on a few issues. How much fat, how long has it been present, is the fat on top of the muscle or under it. Visceral fat, under the ab muscles is hard to lose. Good start is to get some blood work done and measure a fasting Insulin level. High Insulin levels are the worst enemy to burning fat. After fasting for 12 hrs it should b below 5. Insulin stimulates fat, and inhib fat burning. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Eat less ; exerc: The key to losing weight is not a temporary diet but permanent changes. Sugars ; simple carbs from grains esp. Cause weight gain. It's also wise to avoid fried foods. I like dr.

Counting : Counting calories and keeping a food journal can be two of the most effective ways to lose weight. Being accountable for what you put in your mouth by writing it down and being aware of calorie values will make you think about what you are eating. It is important to eat a good variety of foods, so as long as you count your calories, nothing necessarily has to be "off-limits". Get a kitchen scale and weigh your foods in order to know exactly how much you are eating and therefore how many calories. The healthiest diets involve whole grains, lots of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, fish and moderate dairy. Sugars and added oils/butter should be used sparingly. You need to eat at least three meals a day, though some people will advocate more frequent, smaller meals. An exercise program with a lot of cardio (brisk walking every day is the best!) is also important for muscle tone, strength, and cardiovascular health. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

NO!!! Increases fat!: Vodka contains a lot of alcohol. Your body converts alcohol to sugar and sugar to fat. Vodka increases body fat, no matter what flavor. To reduce body fat eat less, esp. less sugars & starches, and exercise. There are NO substitutes for this. See http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht for a healthy diet. Dr. Weil has useful info: http://huff.To/19ygs8y- see his "discuss that" link in his article. ...Read more
I've got Crohn's disease and am trying to lose weight. I've cut out all the junk, eating nothing but nutritious food but i'm painfully constipated.
Talk to your GI: Usually folks with crohn's disease tend to lose too much weight. The steroids that are sometimes prescribed can cause weight gain. First make sure you are getting adequate fluids. Consider MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) or magnesium citrate but you must talk to your GI doctor to get their opinion as they know your bowels better than a generic doctor on this site. ...Read more
No: People will try to sell all sorts of stuff by claiming it BURNS FAT. Of course, the stuff doesn't work. Avoid putting those gimmicky products into your body, and save your money. Weight loss happens when a person eats FEWER calories than she needs. Don't eat or drink sugar, or do it only rarely. Exercise burns fat, because fat is stored fuel... and muscles need fuel to work. ...Read more
