I've been trying to loose weight for over year but can't. I eat very healthy' I have breakfast' lunch' salad about five o clock.

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

Thoughts? Could salad help me lose weight?

Could, but be wise..: Depending on how you fix your salad, it could contain a few hundred to even a few thousand calories. Salads are tricky. Mixed greens with vegetables and light dressing would be best, perhaps with some tuna or salmon added for protein. Avoid creamy dressings, ham, cheese, bacon bits. ...Read more

Does yoga and eating salads and soups for dinner help one lose weight?

Does yoga and eating salads and soups for dinner help one lose weight?

Only if few calories: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Some soups are good, others have lots of calories. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

Is diet pills, exercise and eating like salads with a little meat a bad way to lose weight?

Exercise & eating: The best way to lose is to eat in a way that is healthy for you that you will continue for the rest of your life. Diet pills are just a temporary solution. Exercise is good no matter what, but cutting down on the number of calories you eat is the most important thing. Reduce portion sizes, cut out foods that are low on nutrients like snack foods, eat when you're hungry & stop when you're full. ...Read more

What's the best food I can eat if im trying to loose weight? In the realistic world not just salad and fruit

What's the best food I can eat if im trying to loose weight? In the realistic world not just salad and fruit

Healthy food: I agree with dr. Kessler about finding which foods your body does poorly on. Many have trouble with gluten, soy, eggs, dairy, peanuts, corn, etc -- and along with sugars ; artificial sweeteners, these can lead to weight gain if your body is sensitive to them. In the real world: plenty of lean proteins, veggies, complex carbs, and healthy fats (avocado, olive oil, omega 3's). Berries, apples, etc. ...Read more

Could eating a pb&j for lunch every day and watchin what I eat the rest of the day help me lose weight?

Depends: During weight loss, you need to help your body decrease its insulin level to promote decrease in fat. PBJ can be very high in glycemic index due to the bread, the PB which is high in sugar unless using natural sugar and then the jelly or jam. I would suggest eating a salad with protein as a better alternative ...Read more

Will I lose weight if I eat: two oranges, a fiber1 bar, and oatmeal with flax seeds in it and drink a lot of water every day?

Maybe, but: It will not be a healthy or sustainable weight loss. This proposed diet does not contain enough protein or other nutrients (including vegetables) to maintain your vital functions. It could ultimately throw your body into starvation mode, which would slow your metabolism and make it even harder to lose weight in the future. ...Read more

Not easy: Keep a detailed diary of all of your intake for a week or so. You may be eating/drinking more than you realize. After review of the diary, reduce you intake by at least 30%. With increasing age, it is harder to lose weight due to slowing of metabolism.

I'm 19 yrs, 5'3" & 144lbs. I'm trying to lose weight. I'm losin it very slowly. If I only eat once a day, small meal every day with water before & after the meal, will I lose a lot of weight each week?

Possibly: You may possibly lose weight in that manner, but that is not a healthy way to control your weight, as this may ultimately slow your metabolism. Instead, decrease your total calories by 500-1, 000 per day, while eating 3 healthy meals & 2 healthy snacks per day. Also, exercise (walk or jog) 45 minutes per day, 5 days per week (speak with your doctor before starting any exercise program). ...Read more

Struggling to lose weight, I weigh 180 and my goal is to be at 150. I eat healthy with fruits and veggies. I also go to the gym every day. What am I doing? I have a hard time balancing calories also

Struggling to lose weight, I weigh 180 and my goal is to be at 150. I eat healthy with fruits and veggies. I also go to the gym every day. What am I doing? I have a hard time balancing calories also

Calculate your needs: First, set realistic goals, ie. 1lb weight loss per week (3500 calories/week). Calculate your basal metabolic rate (google it). Multiply by 1.55 (assuming exercising 5days/wk). This tells you daily calories burned. Subtract 500 (3500/week calorie deficit) and the final number is the amount of calories you are allowed to eat daily. Of course this requires you to keep track of what you are eating. ...Read more
