Avatar f tn Running slow for a long distance will help you in losing weight.
Avatar f tn I agree with keeping a food diary - that will help you see where your calories are coming from and what areas you might need to increase of decrease. Make sure you get plenty of produce, both fruits and veggies; lean protein, low/no fat dairy, whole grains and "good" fats. Sometimes, we cut our calories TOO much and our body goes into starvation mode in order to hang onto fat reserves, so make sure you are eating enough calories.
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
Avatar f tn First if your body is not getting enough foods it can easily go into starvation mode and decide to hold or even gain weight. 1200 calories seems very low, especially given how much you exercise. So maybe you should keep your food around 1300 at minimum? It's hard to know the "sweet" spot that will keep your body healthy while loosing weight, but if you don't find it you will have a really hard time loosing weight.
Avatar f tn and the problem is i know running and walking are effective in raising the metabolism but due to my schedule i cant find time for it ! but really thanks for the advice... will try to exercise atleast !
Avatar f tn Here is the answer to this question. In order to lose weight, you have to subtract calories. Safe weight loss is 1-2 lbs/week, so in order to lose 1 lb/week, you'd have to drop 500 calories from your BMR each day (1 lb is equal to 3500 calories, so 500 calories X 7 days = 3500 calories or 1 lb). OR you can drop 250 calories from your diet and increase .....
Avatar n tn I have been doing weight watchers for over eight months and I have hit a pleateu, so I started running for 30-45 minutes 5 days a week and instead of losing weight I started gaining weight. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn You do need to be sure to mix up your exercise, though and not just do one thing. Be sure to add weight training with your cardio (running), since weight training is what builds muscle. You can do weight training using light hand weights, or if you don't have any, use your own body weight. Check out YouTube for examples.
1066531 tn?1254969334 I’ve been working out for many years now, and i want to know how I can tone my body better without losing a large portion of weight, mostly my chest and midsection? I’m 6ft 198lbs I would like to be around 195 but in much better “shape”. My diet ***** and i’m trying to work on it, but I work out at the gym 2-3 times a week lifting weights and running. I dont run a whole bunch though, would that help my problem or will that just make me lose wieght?
Avatar n tn run at 6mph for 2 minutes then run at 3mph or rest for 2 minutes) will be more effective in losing weight than if I ran or walked at a steady pace.Is there any truth to this>?
Avatar n tn Does anyone have any secrets to losing weight with hypothyroid? Have been diagnosed now for a yr and 1/2. Have joined a gym and been eating more veg. and fruit but still can't lose any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Ok thank you ladies I just had well firm legs not no more I would do lots if squats and running and still losing weight lost 28 soo far it's been 2 weeks since I had mine
Avatar f tn Kill this idea of losing weight. So it is more suggestible for you that, you can loss only 25-30 pounds for 2 months in a healthy way.
1467664 tn?1288579313 m 5/5)and at one point was 81 pounds(yuck) I lookwd gross and felt worse.but in answer to losing weight the healthy way and not only am I a type 1 I also am a personal trainer.Timing meals ,excercise and insulin are important.Cutting out carb stotally is not a good idea because your body does need the enrgy especially when you are workinh out.Not sure what dose you are on but once you start a workout plan you will see your needs decrease .
Avatar n tn Im really self conscious about my weight and I would love to lose about 10 kegs in 2 months. I understand that it's a really hard goal but I REALLY want to lose atleast some weight. Any tips ?
Avatar f tn However - walking helps focus your diet regime and helps you stay motivated to lose weight. In fact, Exercise Physiologist James Hill in Denver, has found that those who lose 50 # and who keep it off over 2 years are different than those who don't keep it off do so only by virtue of daily exercise - and for most that daily exercise is walking - about 45-60 minutes daily.
Avatar f tn t have hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, etc, as these can all make losing weight more difficult, as well as causing aches/pains by themselves. I totally agree that you need to opt for low impact exercise, such as swimming, water aerobics, yoga, etc. Once you start losing some weight, you should see some of the pains diminish.
Avatar f tn I started losing my baby weight also i lost 25 lbs and now im pregnant again. I still eat healthy like i was doing and i work out 3-4 times a week. Im a hiker and a gym goer. I do everything basically the same but i dont push myself like i use to i dont over exert myself. As long as your body is use to the running a mile you will be fine. Its if you arent use to it or you over do it. Like if you feel tired or breathing to hard stop and take a minute rest thats what i do.
Avatar f tn Honestly, I'm more healthy now than before the pregnancy. I've stayed in the normal range of weight gain and developed better habits. I plan to breastfeed and keep walking and eating well to lose the weight. Also I hear you don't have as much time to eat, so I think it will just happen. I was trying to lose weight before the pregnancy with paleo.
Avatar m tn m not sure if not having enough protein is contributing to me not losing weight. I hear people talk about how they lose a pound a week and the such, but I've run 5 miles a day for 5 days straight for 1 month and have only lost 1-2 lbs. What am I doing wrong?!
Avatar m tn t losing weight I lost motivation. I really like Zumba so it keeps me motivated to go even when I am not losing weight. I have been a dancer since I was 3; which is part of the reason I tend to lean towards Zumba. I got shin splints running and my body hurt all the time.. I don't have that with Zumba. Honestly; I would do any dance cardio that would keep me motivated to keep going. Zumba just happens to be the easiest class to find.
Avatar n tn As far as exercise, get some weights and do some weight training, or do some push-ups. Cardio is not necessary for losing weight. In fact, I believe that running too much can be bad for you. That's a whole other topic of conversation. Stick to high-intensity workouts for shorter periods & you'll be healthier. Also, remember that it's not what you do at the gym that makes you look/feel great, it's what you do at home in the kitchen that counts.
