HELP!! Why is it so HARD?

Hello, I’m currently on school holidays (yay!!!) and I’ve set myself a goal to lose 3kg (mainly fat would be nice) in three weeks. I am currently 51kg, and 164cm tall so i could do with losing a few kgs. HOWEVER… it is so HARD!! It’s not about the food, I mean I’ve spent the last week eating 1200 calories a day: Breakfast: 50calories salad Lunch: 100 calories salad Afternoon tea: 100calories yoghurt, 200 calories fruit Dinner: 150 calories carbs (legumes/brown rice), 400calories protein, 200 calories vegetables My arms are noticeably smaller, but my INNER thighs aren’t firm?? They used to have some muscle, and now it’s gone a little jiggly (WHICH I HATE!! and summer is coming!) I don’t know what to do!! I do 3 hours of strength training a week, and 3 hours of cardio. What should I do? Do i need more exercise? Or cut more calories? Thanks!! PLEASE HELP! I’m starting to feel unmotivated because this isn’t doing anything!

Answer:

Because you are thinking it’s a quick process when it’s not. And you should be eating more protein, every meal and snacks as well. And I don’t know how you are breaking down the 3 hours of each, but it’s a 5 day a week, 45 min a day program that works the best. Your body is changing, you just can’t see it, and it’s not changing as fast as you expect ( which isn’t realistic, because your body will actually start holding more weight to deal with and be ready for more exercise, this will even out once your daily needs have been established. Don’t give up, just be more patient, realize how important this is and how much it will give you, then you’ll see it’s well worth the time! The Most Important Thing You Must Understand is you need to keep your program ENJOYABLE! If your brain finds it too painful, no matter how strongly your mind is committed to working the program, eventually, (usually less than 6 weeks) your brain will make you quit! It won’t tolerate pain. At the same time it’s so very important that you allow your body and brain time to adjust to your new training. From tendons being stretched to complicated metabolic issues, to learning proper form, pace and routines and much more your brain and body need at least 6-8 weeks of taking it easy so it can keep you going strong! Don’t give much credit to the scale when first starting, it’s normal to retain more fluids, it’s your body’s way of being ready for the next workout. Don’t micro-manage your calories either. Sensible wholesome meals, the quality of the calories are more important than the quantity. Your diet should be ENJOYABLE too, and something you can develop and maintain as a habit. Workout at your own pace, which in the beginning should be slower, focus more on how you move ( your form) as it’s important to how your body will shape up and that you don’t get injured. Just about any exercise is good and will work, walking, jogging, running, cycling but my favorite and number one choice for losing or gaining weight is weightlifting aka bodybuilding. If your a girl, don’t worry that you’ll get manly muscles, the average steroid-free female builds only a small amount of muscle each year. But that muscle is awesome! Because not only does it burn calories while your working and using them, and while they are repairing and replenishing themselves, but 24/ 7 they consume calories just to stay alive! Just try not to miss a single day of working out for the first 6 months without a real good reason, otherwise slacking off can become the habit. Other than taking your two scheduled days off per week. Rest is important, so get to bed at a decent time as well. Make sure you drink plenty of water everyday. Learn to drink water warm, so you can have it anytime/anywhere. Other than keeping it sensible and enjoyable, remember all the benefits you’ll get from exercising and a decent diet. You’ll sleep better, have better energy, breathing, moods, concentration, endurance, strength, self-confidence, and so much more. It’s really the closest thing to magical powers each human has, so don’t miss out! 45-60 minutes a day, 5 days a week is ideal, but by all means start with less if need be, again keeping it enjoyable is everything! One other piece of advice in this, and that’s don’t do situps! They don’t work the muscle properly so growth is very doubtful, and they risk lower back and hernia injuries. If you must, which most ppl don’t, do crunches. Most ppl don’t need to worry about their abs, they are small muscles that do alot of work already, every time you move your upper body they work, as well as working during many of your other movements, so if your working your body they are getting theirs. The diet industry has hyped up abs so much, because they know most ppl will fail, because they are too painful and produce little to no results, which they hope will lead people to buying their junk products ( it’s working, they’ve been doing it a long time and making a fortune!). Remember the only thing your belly fat and abs have in common is location, other than that, they have nothing to do with one another, so don’t burn yourself out working your abs,when it’s your whole body that needs the workout and will produce the results you want. Realize your health is one of, if not THE most important things you will ever have in this life, it will be a huge factor in deciding how this life plays out for you. Don’t under-estimate it.

How many carbs on a low carb diet?

I’m on a low carb diet and I’m a vegetarian so it’s pretty hard to stay away from carbs. I’m 15, how many carbs should I have? I’ve lost 20 pounds in a few weeks, but I’ve stopped because I wasn’t eating near enough so my metabolism kind of shut down.

How much weight could I lose in 4 months?

In November I’ll be turning 18 and I would like to be able to lose a few pounds the healthy way. I see myself as a big eater so I’m looking to cut down. I’m 5’2 and about 120 lbs. How much weight is it possible for me to lose before my birthday? Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ Forgot to add that I’m a vegetarian ๐Ÿ™‚

Answer:

You should weigh about 108. You can lose that 12 lbs in just 6 weeks. Hereโ€™s a good low-carb food/exercise plan: Breakfast: Cook 9-grain cereal (from health food store) in water with rolled oats and wheat bran. Make a pot of it on weekends and nuke 1/2 cup each morning. Add low fat milk or yogurt, banana, walnuts and berries. Drink hot Ovaltine. Breakfast should be your largest meal of the day to raise blood sugar level which falls during the night. Lunch: Egg, tuna or turkey ยฝ sandwich on multi-grain (not just whole wheat) bread with bean or alfalfa sprouts, yogurt, fresh fruit. If you had meat loaf for dinner, bring a meat loaf sandwich on whole grain bread (NO mayo). On cold days, a squatty thermos of hot chili, split peas with ham, or beef stew. Snacks: Fresh (not canned) fruit. Nothing ever from a vending machine. Dinner: salad with white meat chicken and fresh (not canned) veggies: tomatoes, 2 kinds of lettuce, 2 kinds of shredded cabbage, shredded or sliced carrots, alfalfa or bean sprouts, zucchini, green or red peppers, hard boiled eggs, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, tofu, cottage cheese…Instead of dressing, squeeze 1/4 tomato over it. Or homemade bean/vegetable soups; great way to recycle leftovers. Or grilled fish with steamed veggies. Or omelet: In blender, whip together eggs, tofu, cottage cheese, onions, garlic powder. Cook with mushrooms, chopped tomatoes and green or red peppers. Avoid junk food, fast foods, pastries, desserts, anything with sugar (cancer cells feed on sugar), gluten, syrup (even canned fruit in syrup), peanut butter, fat/grease (pork, wieners, chops, bacon, salami, pizza, chips, fries), pasta, potatoes, ramen, popcorn, white bread, rice, canned veggies, ice cream, soda, chips, tobacco, alcohol and coffee. No oil except olive and mac nut. To keep your skin clear, drink water, tea, unsweetened veggie and fruit juice. Join a gym; they have all the equipment and staff to show you how to use it to get the look you want to achieve, but you have to ask them. Much cheaper than buying your own equipment. Go hiking, biking, jogging, bowling, swimming, rowing, jump rope, play tennis, badminton, volleyball, soccer, jumping jacks, lift weights, trampoline? To tone your tummy, do sit ups, push ups, pull ups, leg lifts, butt raises and crunches. For more energy, take Super B complex.

Becoming healthier? Eating Clean?

Ok sooo….. I want to lose weight… pretty simple i guess.. btw… i am not fit so i want to become fit. I am 14 years old 15 in 5 days, 112.5 lbs and 4’10 ft (yes i am a shorty :P) and I would like to get to at least 100 lbs. So I will be honest, at first, I tried to starve myself a little (probably ate up to 500-900 calories a day.) I am pretty ashamed for trying to do so ๐Ÿ™ but I have read many health things and I found that doing that will just prevent me from losing the weight I want to lose. So I have decided to take a healthier approach. I have decided to try eating clean and work out regularly 6/7 times a week. I have also decided to eat about 1,200 calories a day. Not to mention that since I am trying that… I have also found that since I starved myself, my metabolism has lowered ๐Ÿ™ that really is upsetting…. So I want to get it back to normal. What a really want to ask is: -How can I get get my metabolism back to normal… I know it takes time, but can i get tips? -Did I get my calorie intake right? Please help me on that… -How many calories should I lose each day to help me lose weight? -Can you give me some clean foods that I can get? I know I maybe a little “too young” to worry but, I don’t want to go overboard on all of my eating ๐Ÿ™ if i didn’t try to exercise last year that this year I would have ended up being 130 lbs. PLEASE HELP ME!!! Thank You!!! Fuffi PLEASE DO NOT JUDGE! I WANT HELP NOT USELESS OPINIONS! JUST BECAUSE THIS IS YAHOO ANSWERS DOESN’T MEAN I WILL ACCEPT ANY “ANSWER”. I am not Dieting… Im just eating clean as in healthier. I just don’t want to be unhealthy again :

Answer:

Calories are often but not always the same, stay away from too many empty carbs/sugars. Aside from not being good for you, they increase your appetite, and stimulate insulin, which causes excess calories to be stored as fat. Eat fat, but eat as much of the right kind as you can (poly or mono unsaturated). Eat meat if you want, but get rid of as much visible fat as you can since that is not good fat and has lots of calories. Don’t starve yourself, and if you’re exercising, don’t overestimate the calories that burns. Building muscle is better than aerobics for increasing metabolism (use both if you worry about your heart, but your a teenager right?). If exercising for muscle gain/toning, you need to increase your protein intake. Chicken, fish, lower fat milk, leaner red meats, eggs (ignore the nonsense of yolks being bad), are fine. Count calories and write them down, it’s a pain, but it works. Weigh yourself every morning on the scale and write it down twice or so a week. It’s a boost or warning too. I do this and hated it at first. Took a long time to be convinced that it worked, but drink water. Ugh, there may be something to aspartame fooling your insulin/blood sugar regulation. It’s worked for me. You will get used to it. And it will work. Good luck with whatever you do.

If you’re trying to lose weight why would you consume something postworkout?

Especially a simple carb, doesn’t that spike the insulin immediately stopping your fat burning results? I need more answers please. Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

can anyone give me a low carb diet menu?

Yea, I’m 14 years old, 5’3.5, and 128 pounds with muscles and a pot belly. I read somewhere that to get rid of it I should go on a low carb diet and consume more protein. I know that meats have a lot of protein but I eat meat almost every day. Should I eat more? What’s the menu of foods I should eat from?

Answer:

I learned recently that excess weight is not always due to excess body fat, a lot of unwanted weight is simply sitting around in the insides. I used a brand new diet supplement that is taking the nation by storm, it rinses out the insides. I do not know how it operates however I know that I lost seventeen lbs and 5 inches from my waistline! There’s a risk free trial at http://fetoturs.voxelperfect.net
