Topic: Need a good diet plan (that has worked) for losing inches? need help please?
September 20, 2019 / By April Question:
I have searched endlessly on the internet for a good diet plan for losing INCHES not pounds..My measurements need to come down so I need to lose about 3-4 from the waist and hip area..I just need to know how much fat and what not I should eat each day. I already do pilates and excercises and have been a diet for a while. And while the pounds have been melting away the inches are still there..So does anyone have a specific diet plan they followed and lost some inches? Also I am afraid that maybe my body cant lose any inches anymore because I am already fairly thin 5'10 137 pounds..Do you think maybe I have reached my lowest in losing inches? any help would be great thanks

Unfortunately, there is no way to lose weight in targetted areas. You must perform a series of exercises and follow a specific diet to lose weight throughout your body.
1. Wake up early, and drink a glass - small bottle of cold water on an empty stomach, this will cause your body to increase your core body temperature, and therefore burning calories.
2. Once you've had your cold water, wait for about 30 - 50 minutes before you have breakfast. I recommend you have a bowl of low fat cereal with skimmed (no fat!) milk.
3. Exercise!! It is the most important factor overall! For weight loss, you need to perform cardio. Also, I suggest you work out in the morning, you get more energized, just wait about 1 - 2 hours before your work out after breakfast. Walk at a fast pace for about 30 minutes, as a warm up. Then keep on running as fast as you can, and when you get tired, walk until you're able to run again. Repeat this routine until you've worked out another 30 minutes.This is called cardio interval training. Studies have shown that people who perform interval training twice a week (in addition to two other days of lower intensity cardio) lose twice as much weight as those who do just a moderate cardio workout. Once you're done with that, use an Elliptical Trainer / Cross-Trainer: these machines are fun-to-use and easy-to-use. I enjoy working out on these. Perform sit-ups before you go to bed.
4. You must have lunch! But reduce the amount of food you normally eat, it will be easier if you use a smaller plate.
5. Stay away from fried food, junk food, greasy food, candy, sweets, chocolates, potato chips, and sodas.
6. Have a cup of green tea, without adding any sugar. It's been proven that green tea stimulates your metabolism, and helps you burn more calories. I suggest you have that 2-3 hours after lunch time.
7. Try to engage in reading rather than watching T.V., researches have shown that you burn 19% more calories reading, than watching T.V.
8. Drink alot of water!
9. Have 5-6 smaller meals rather than 3 large meals.
10. Snack on healthy food such as veggies, fruits, and/or nuts!
11. Try not to eat past 7 P.M., or wait 3 hours to sleep after having a meal in the evening.
12. Just remember, that fat and carbohydrates aren't bad for you, you just need to lower the quantity you intake, and you could do that by following step number 5.
I assure you results if you follow this.
I hope I've helped.

Yo-yo dieting weakens immune system, says study
by Mike Adams
Bouncing between weight loss and weight gain wreaks havoc on the immune system, says new research. NK cell activity dropped as much as 30%, and the negative health effects of yo-yo dieting lingered for years.
This is further evidence supporting slow, sustained weight loss rather than crash diets or trying to "lose ten pounds in ten days." If you want to attain and maintain a healthy body weight, persistence, not immediate results, is the key. If you lose more than 1-2 pounds a week, you're probably overdoing it.
* In the last four years, she lost 60 pounds on a liquid diet, 35 pounds with a combination of herbal weight-loss pills and four hours of daily exercise and 15 pounds on the Atkins plan.
* "I've been dieting forever," says the 51-year-old secretary for the city of Los Angeles.
* Carrying 210 pounds on her 5-foot, 7-inch frame, Erie's aware of studies showing that weight reduction decreases the risks of diabetes and other illnesses.
* But diet and nutrition experts are concerned about the potential health consequences for people such as Erie who repeatedly lose and regain pounds.
* Nutrition educators at the University of California, Berkeley, recently reported that women who began dieting before age 14 were not only heavier but also were more than twice as likely to have dieted more than 20 times than women who began restricting their calories later.
* Lead author Joanne Ikeda said those who begin this pattern of losing and regaining pounds before puberty could disrupt their physical development.
* Now, there's new evidence that yo-yo dieting may weaken the immune system.
* Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle studied natural killer cells, which attack viruses and cancers, in a study of 114 obese, sedentary women ages 50 to 75.
* Among women who had lost weight at least five times, natural killer cell function dropped 30 percent, researchers reported.
* At a time when an estimated 50 percent of American women and 25 percent of American men are either dieting or thinking about dieting, such findings reinforce the wisdom of sticking with a sustainable weight.
At a restaurant split your meal and eat only half meal and take the rest home if the quality is more
cut your wine calories in half by opting for chardonnay the lightest option as a wine spritzer equal parts wine and soda water
If you are 5'10" and 137 lbs how many inches can you have to lose? I am thin at that weight at 5'6" if you have 4" on me you must be skinny as heck. I can't see how you could need to lose an inch.
You cannot get smaller than the Bone Frame. Split your calorie Intake to six meals a day. 10% of the Calorie Intake must be from Fat.
And of this 10% Fat 30% of this should be from saturated Fat.
Please Remember that Having a little bit of Body Fat is Good as this is like Reserve Energy which is useful in emergencies like when you fall sick and don't like to eat or cannot eat.
