Losing weight by toning

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight by toning


Avatar f tn Healthy eating and moderate exercise are the best way to lose/keep weight off. You can't "spot lose", such as the belly, but you can tone the muscles, so it won't look as large. You might try yoga; it's excellent for toning muscles.
Avatar f tn Not if you do chest toning exercises while losing weight. You don't want to lose weight without toning up your body as you go, anyways. Doing so would only cause you to have saggy skin and stretch marks all over your body. Make sure you are toning up! Also, spend the extra money to make sure A. you have a really good supportive everyday bra and B. you have a good, supportive exercise bra. As far as exercise goes, I recommend weight training every other day and cardio on the off days.
Avatar n tn I am not sure what you started out at. But 55 kg sounds good to me. Work towards toning up your body by doing the requisite stretching and strength training exercises. If you lost 20 kg then toning up is really necessary. Please join a physical trainer or a gym. This will also keep you motivated. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn I second that, 100 lbs is an amazing accomplishment! I also agree 131 is a good, healthy weight. Loosing more wouldn't necessarily be harmful, 120 will put you into 20 BMI which is still considered a healthy number. However, I suggest you focus more on muscle toning over weight loss. It's more important for you to be healthy than to be light. This toning will also help with the flabbiness, although it still takes time to get rid of it all.

Avatar f tn t spot lose... losing weight all over, will cause weight loss from your legs as well. There are exercises you can do to tone the muscles on your legs to make them appear thinner. Yoga is really good for toning muscles. Walking is also good for leg muscles.
1657318 tn?1312172783 Sounds like you are experiencing a "Plateau" phase which the body seems to take a 'rest' from losing weight and you are just staying the same in weight. You could be gaining lean muscle weight from your exercising. Muscle does weight more than fat so the scale may not reflect what is happening to your body. Suggest you continue what you have been doing and measure your body to determine weight loss/toning, not a scale. Thank you for your question.
Avatar n tn I don't understand how you can gain fat, while losing weight. Have you lost a lot of weight, which could contribute to lose skin that "appears" flabby? It's possible that you need to be doing more toning exercises, rather than the high intensity exercises. I love yoga and walking. They are both great for weight loss and toning.
Avatar n tn It's a great addition. Yoga tends to be more mussel building and toning your body, when working out to loose weight you need a good combination of cardio and body toning. I love doing Yoga and it's very helpful to me, but if I didn't walk/run on a treadmill I wouldn't have lost any weight.
Avatar n tn You are exercising, losing fat, and gaining lean muscle; then you will not show weight lose because muscle weights more than fat. As we exercise we build lean body muscle mass which weight more than fat so the scale reflects no weight loss when in fact the body is trimming down fat. Measure your waist and hips as a guide for trimming down. The tape measure will measure loss of inches and your clothes will start to feel looser. As long as the body is toning up, there is weight loss.
Avatar n tn Most experts recommend 30-60 minutes of aerobic exercise three or four days a week, along with two or three days of weight-bearing, resistance exercise (such as weight lifting). This is sufficient to achieve satisfying results. You can exercise daily or on alternate days, depending on the availability of time. Walking is one of the simplest aerobic exercises. You can vary the intensity to match your fitness level.
Avatar f tn You're apparently not too used to working out, so you have to start slowly and build up as you get stronger. Anything that gets/keeps you moving is doing something for you. While cardio is good for you, you also need to do some strength training. You can do that in the form of squats, lunges, or using light weights. You can check out YouTube for various weigh bearing exercises. When you do strength training, you build muscle, and muscle burns fat.
Avatar f tn Measure your bust, waist, and hips and you will see you are losing inches (toning up). Your clothes are probably looser. For your age you need 2000 calories per day because you maybe still growing. Women usually stop growing from 18-20 years old. Hoped this helped you.

Avatar f tn Liquid diet is not a good practice for weight loss. This is because, if the liquids are not supplying things like protein, then your body starves for calorie food. As a result, your body goes into survivor mode and metabolism slows down to preserve energy.
Avatar n tn I have bought a rowing machine as i have heard its the best machine for losing weight & toning becasue you are using all your body. What is the most efficient way to use a rowing machine?
Avatar n tn You are 16 years old and if you are exercising, then your body is toning up. You may not be losing weight as per the weight scale because as we built lean muscle mass (from exercising) and loss fat, muscle weights more than fat. The scale may not show we have lost weight but if you measure your body it will reflect you have lost inches.
Avatar f tn Healthy eating plan combined with exercises that help you lose overall weight while toning your arm muscles can effectively help you get the sleek, sculpted arms you desire. Get rid of the fat: Step 1:Count your calories to keep track of how much you're eating. Step 2:Create a caloriec deficit by cutting 250 to 500 calories from your daily intake. Step 3:Add about 60 minutes of exercise into each day.
Avatar m tn Remember muscle weights more than fat so the scale may not look like you are losing weight. Use a measuring tape instead, which will show the body is toning and tighten up, and your clothes will feel looser. Thank you for your question.
