Question: i know this is horribly unhealthy, but i am impatient. i have been barely eating, for the last two weeks or so and i've lost a little over ten pounds. i will eat a salad or some fruit a day and that is it, nothing else. i was just wondering that once i reach my goal weight (which is between 125-135, i am 185 now and 5'5) can i start eating normal meals, but healthy ones and not gain all of the weight back? i plan on starting to go to the gym soon too. thanks ahead of time!

A lot of people say you will gain all of it back, but you wont unless you completely go back to your old eating habits. However you will probably gain some weight when you start eating normally again, like 5lbs because your body wont be used to the food. Well atleast thats what happened to me! i know you understand how bad it is for you to starve yourself, but it really has damaged me long term and would say its not worth it..also try not to get too caught up with calories and food.. it really messes with your head! good luck :)

Here's your BMR --> http://www.calculator.net/bmr-calculator... . It tell us that you need 1600 calories per day just to stay alive and yet you tell us you're not eating that much. That means you have to be burning fat and, if you're not, you're numbers are wrong. Your body has no choice but to follow your brain. So, you should feed your brain a steady diet of good information if you want to be all you can be. It's YOUR body and it has to last a lifetime so it's worth the investment. Don't ask questions of random strangers with no credibility in this or other online forums. Use high quality resources for information instead. The basic principles of health, fitness, and nutrition are not that difficult or hard to understand. Avoid the internet unless you're using trusted sites in dot gov or dot edu domains. The dot coms are usually driven by profit motive and you'll find bad information in most websties including WebMD, Livestrong, Bobybuilding.com, etc. and especially in this forum and others like it. And, avoid magazine and other cheap commercial informational products about fitness, glamour, muscle building, fashion and fads. Don't be part of the "herd" unless you want to look, feel, and perform like the "herd". Use books, especially late edition text books on subjects such as nutrition, anatomy, kinesiology, and physiology...especially exercise physiology. You can find excellent information resources at your local public or Uni library or for sale cheap online at Amazon.com and Ebay.com. Always follow the science. Use critical thinking. Be skeptical and do not believe anything without cross checking it with trusted sources. Grow your personal knowledge base and everything else will follow with relative ease. You have one body and it has to last a lifetime. It's worth the investment to learn how to care for it properly. You need to better understand how your body works so use the links below to help with that. And, then you may be on your way to solving the mystery of your body fat. The key to fat loss is not exercise, it's diet. Any exercise will burn calories but no exercise will burn fat unless your diet allows it. You can burn fat in your sleep or you can run all day and never burn any fat. It all depends on your diet. Fat loss is determined by calorie control, not by exercise. Good exercises for burning calories are speed walking, biking, swimming, dancing, etc. and ANY other physical activity which makes you move a lot of weight for a long time. But NO exercise is good for burning fat if you eat too many calories because you can always eat more calories than you can burn but you can't always burn as many as you take in. Too many people waste energy and time because they do not understand this one simple point. The result is too often giving up in frustration, abandoning gym memberships they continue to pay for, and many other unnecessary problems not the least of which is a lack of success. An average person must walk about five miles every day for a week to burn the calories equivalent to a pound of body fat. So, unless you think walking about five miles a day (or doing an equivalent amount of exercise) with no guarantee of fat loss makes sense, focus your fat loss program on diet. Diet for fat loss. Exercise for fitness.

You left it a bit late but you can be down about 12 pounds in a month more if you up the exercise to an hour a day. That's tough but doable. 20 pounds is a lot in a month. Maybe this will work for you. Eat what you like. Just keep it to1200 calories a day, (healthier is better obviously), and sweat and I mean SWEAT!! for 30-40 minutes a day 6-7 days a week. Jump rope, walk, jog, swim, bike whatever. Remember the more you sweat the more you can add to your eating plan. Write down everything you eat with calorie content. This will give you an overall look at where you need to make changes. Don't cheat, you're only fooling yourself and don't skip workouts. Now here's the worst kept secret of losing weight. Don't eat after 6 pm. It's like a mini fast for your body and what better time to be hungry than when you're asleep? You should be losing about between 2-3 pounds a week, which is a healthy rate without starving yourself. Good luck. If you follow this lifestyle change your weight won't ever be a problem again.

Your body is starving right now, so everything you eat is going to be turned to fat. if you want this to work you will need to starve yourself down to almost 110, because the second you start eating again, all of it become fat for the first week or two, until your body realizes its going to be feed again. that should leave you somewhere around 135 when your body stabilizes. do weight training to lose weight, not cardio. take multivitamins so you don't end up with vitamin deficiencies.

You must have a good metabolism, but dont starve yourself! Eat fruits and drink ALOT of water. I'm able to do the same, just that I don't choose to (I'm happy the way I am). If I start eating just fruits and only drink water and teas, I start loosing weight fast.

Ok well im in the same boat. ok first off about the weed i dont really know. I dont really think it will effect weight gain that much. But Im not a scietist or anything and I just resently quit smoking myself. It sucks. But im glad I did. However. If your wanting to gain weight. This is whats working for me. You dont need any weight gain pills or anything. You have to do a few things though. First. Eat and eat and eat. Deppending on how much you way now and how tall you are and what your age is. But nomatter what in order to gain weight you have to eat alot. Try not to force yourself to fast start out a little bit more at a time. But eventually work your way up to way more than usual. Also make sure your eating the right kind of foods two. Foods with a high amount of caleries. Such as chicken, corn, eggs, oats, cottage cheese, tuna,peanutbutter, and peanuts. Also add your fruits in there everyday if possible. A good way to know how many caleries you need is to type in calerie calculater in at google.com. This helps alot cause it can give you a good overview of what you need to do. Um second thing is you gotta workout if you want this weight to become muscle. Your dancing you were talking about will help. But I would also recommend some other workouts. Some really good workouts for gaining weight are, Pull ups, bench press, overhead press, dead lifts, and most importantly squats. Most of these workout multiple muscles at a time which is good for bulking up. Also, try not to work the same muscles out everyday. that way they have time to rebuild. Third. Make sure you get a good amount of sleep at night. That way your muscles can have time to build thereselfs back up. Um I think thats about it. Again im not a expert or anything just a regular guy. But I have been trying to figure out how to gain weight myself for a long time and finnaly a few months ago I started doing these things by what I learned from youtube, and bulk up fast.com. And the outcome has been great so far. I can tell a big difference in myself and I've gained about 15 pounds of lean muscle in about two and a half months. This isnt gonna be easy at first. At least it wasnt for me. But in about a week or two you'll probably be used to it. And you'll already see a big differance I promise. Sorry about the miss spelled words. I hope this was helpfull. Goodluck. Peace. ~Coty Colyer
