Is it helpful to do weight training even when I have fat still to lose? Will it help with weight loss or just make me bigger and bulky?

Is it helpful to do weight training even when I have fat still to lose? Will it help with weight loss or just make me bigger and bulky?

Will help: Weight training will most definitely help with weight loss. Not only will you burn calories during your lifting or other muscle building exercise, YOU WILL BURN MORE CALORIES ALL DAY LONG. THAT'S BECAUSE MUSCLE REQUIRES MORE CALORIES TO MAINTAIN ITSELF. For every 22 pounds of muscle added to your body you burn an extra 100 calories a day just sitting and will loose 10.5 pounds of fat in a year. ...Read more

I am fixing to go get a breast reduction and was wondering if it will also help me lose weight as well?

I am fixing to go get a breast reduction and was wondering if it will also help me lose weight as well?

Perhaps: Most women will experience a decrease in breast volume with weight loss. The amount is variable and depends upon how much breast gland tissue and breast fatty tissue you have. I tell my patients that want to both lose weight and have a breast reduction to wait for the surgery until the weight loss has been completed. This prevents the breasts from sagging excessively after you lose weight. ...Read more

I want to feel and look skinnier. Can I lose weight with just a diet and no exercise?

I want to feel and look skinnier. Can I lose weight with just a diet and no exercise?

Harder to do: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and leafy lettuce (little or no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely AVOID sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

Exercise is better: The distribution of fat is genetically and hormonally determined. You cannot determine where the fat will be deposited. You can build up the muscles underlying the breasts that make them more prominent. ...Read more

Watch'FattyBoomBoom': Wha?? You sound like a Gumby or a squeeze balloon! You are focused just on fat! Have you considered your protein (aka muscle) and other supportive tissues? Have you considered that pushing your metabolism and body back and forth like that will eventually leave you looking 20 years older than you are?? Best to get a few books on nutrition and exercise and do the real work of educating yourself. ...Read more

I want to get a larger butt without surgeries or unnatural pills. So what can I do? Gain weight? How do I gain weight in a healthy way?

Targeted exercises: Your thighs and butt are meant to endure more physical strain and exertion than we provide them. Practice lifting objects with wide based stance (think sumo wrestler) to minimize back and knee bending and focus on butt/thighs. Do squats and leg presses. Power walking and cycling can help. Dancing/twerking (no joking) can also help. Do not go overboard with eating - you might get more than you want ...Read more

Tall Order !: Trying to lose a ton of weight in one week isn't safe ; you will probably be disappointed with the results. Spot fat loss does not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some will probably be abdominal fat. But, we don't get to choose what area of body fat is lost from. Eat healthy ; be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed. Tighten ab's: crunches, reverse crunches, . ...Read more
