Diet/work out plans and acne?
Topic: Diet/work out plans and acne?
June 16, 2019 / By Anne Question:
I weigh 172, and I can't seem to lose it. I guess in the long run, I'm not really that fat, but I chubby, or chunky which ever which you like to say. I'm not exactly sure how to go about dieting. I have that abb circle pro, and a pool, and I can all ways walk/run the long A** road i live on a couple of times, so I have the work out part. But not sure when and how long. I mean, i know that the commercial says three minutes...but I'm not so sure. I mean if i can put more time into (and I can) shouldn't I? Also whats a good motivation? I seem to be lacking that a lot.
Any ways, back to the diet plan. I'm not sure how to go about it. What I should eat, how much, how little, any secrets, and so on. Also there is the biggest picture of money. I'm 18 with out a job
( which is really hard to come by where I live) so I have to rely on my parents. I'd go over it with mom, but she isn't any good with this either. God knows it's pointless to talk to my dad. My mom is really over weight too, so I want to help her get back into shape too, and I'd like to get back into shape before summer eh? :)
Also, It's embarrassing to say, but I have bad acne on my back, chest, and shoulders. Whats a good acne body wash that works fast? I also have some unsightly acne scaring, whats the best and fastest way to get rid of it? Or how long does it take for it to go away naturally? I know i could go with laser surgery, but that's really expensive isn't it? how much would something like that cost? It's mostly like way out of my price range.
Okay okay, sorry for the probably unnecessarily long paragraphs.
Whats a good diet and work out plan, and please include prices. Oh if you can, give a me a length of time as well. Thanks in advance for every one's help.

Running...how many competitive long distance runners have you seen that are overly 'chunky'. You won't be able to do it very fast but if you get started now and push it you should be able to make a significant improvement by the time summer comes again again. I would recommend starting with ~1 mile and work your way up. Also, don't forget you need a balance of proper nutrition, resistance and cardio excercise, and sometimes good supplements (ripped fuel or any thermognenic fat burner).
- Jump rope (60s on, 30s off). Repeat 5-10 times (but alternate with the items below)
- quads - do wall sits. Put your back against a wall and pretend you're sitting in a chair. Hold as long as you can. Back up, then repeat.
- Butt/quads: do Lunges (no weights). Walk across the floor doing thigh bends (your knee should almost hit the ground). Go slow and concentrate
- Mountain climbers: get down on all fours like you're going to climb a mountain. One foot up and one foot back...alternate feet in a jump fashion (go for 60s, 30s rest)
- Sumo squats: grap a light (10-20 lb) weight. hold the the weight in your hands inbetween your legs. Point your feet outward and squat down and back up (go for 60s, 30s rest)
- Jump lunges: grab one light dumb bell (5-10 lbs each) in each hand and start in a lunge position. Jump and switch feet and land in a lunge position (go for 60s, 30s rest)
- Side lunges: grab one light dumb bell (5-10 lbs each) in each hand and start standing straight up. Lunge right, then back up, then left (go for 60s, 30s rest)
- hamstrings - get an ab ball (can get for ~$10). lay on the ground and put your feet up on the ball (extended). With your butt off the ground use your hamstring muscles to pull the ball into your butt. Extend out and repeat
- side jumps - get a step (or something similar). jump over it non-stop (side to side) for 60s, take a 30s break and repeat (4 times).
- Also do inner/outer thigh machine or use resistance bands (get a trainer at the gym to show you). You can usually get a one time session for free and resistance bands don't cost that much (so you can buy some and do at home)
- Eating and stomach (abs)
You can (and should) eat 5-6 semi-small nutritious meals...speeds up your metabolism and prevents you from being too hungry. Don't load up with 'tons' of food and don't cut your calories to bare mininum (1K) as this slows down your metabolism.
You can try eating various things: fresh fruit, chicken, brown rice, broccoli, beef jerky, protein shake, applesauce (no sugar added), veggies, lean ground turkey, turkey sausages, Low sugar protein bars (or try Kashi bars). Oh, and substitute any junk food with Odwalla bars (the choco. chip ones are fabulous and have 8 grams of protein). (I'm 'frugal' too and can still find good, healthy food to eat)
If you eat ~7 a.m. ~10 a.m. 1p.m. 4 p.m. 7p.m. (and 10 p.m. if you're up late you should be great. Get your excercise/workout in b/w any of those meals (or directly prior)
You don't need many weights or machines. You can get one of those ab balls online or at a Target/Wal-mart for like $10-$15. Do abs using the ball...always works your core. Also get some resistance bands and you can work your legs (outer thighs) as well. Go for a run or do some sprints to get in better shape. Pick up some sports/activities with your friends.
- Oblique exercises (twisting - works your 'love handles'). Do a lot of these using the ab ball: sit on the ball hold a 10 lb weight and walk your feet forward. 'Lay down' and with the weigh above you twist to one side-up-pause-twist to the other side. Ensure you're using your obliques to do the work.
- Start taking a thermogenic fat burner (will burn fat faster when your body temp rises - i.e. working out), ripped fuel, or hydroxycut hardcore before your workouts. Don't exceed the daily recommended allowance and drink plenty of water. You don't NEED these, they just help burn fat faster while providing energy. You could take a multi-vitamin instead (relatively cheap at Wal-mart)
Hope that helps...you should start making significant progress (while eating real food) if you follow this advice and work hard. Remember...you need the resistance training so don't exclude it (do circuit training if you need to). Lots or reps...15-20 and increase the resistance as you get stronger.
Also, some more info that may help you:
- get rid of the junk food in your house (and don't buy anymore). If it's around (and you're like me) you'll eat it. The less crap you eat the less your body will crave it...the more sugar and stuff you do eat the more your body will crave it.
- use your ab circle pro and swim in your pool on alternate days to break up the routine

You do need to watch what you eat and excercise regularly..
But if you really need need to lose weight, and have self discipline, Do HCG. They have drops at health stores. You have to stick with it (for the most part) To obviously lose the most, you have to maintain the diet as it states, but for me (being a mom to a child in terrible twos) Sometimes I just had to eat what I could, just made it a smaller portion. It corrects you Metabolism, and roughly 30 days after your done you can go back to eating normal (of course with reasonable portions) After a few days it does end your hunger, but for the first 2 days you will have a headache to have Tylenol. I did it and lost 25lbs in 30 days (like i said I cheated a bit, still lost but not to the potential i could of) My friend did it and he lost 100 lbs in 4 months. And its been 10 months and hes only gained about 5 pounds, but it has been the holidays.. Good luck.

most diets are a sham. If you just eat a healthy, balanced diet then that is the most beneficial thing you can do for you body. If you are really concerned about losing weight than simply dont eat any junk food. You do need to still exercise though. You wont loose a pound unless you burn off more calories than you take in every day.
While it took little less than two months for me to really see a difference, my acne, blackheads and whole lot of other skin problems I had such as eczema had completely cleared! It was totally amazing...

A good healthy diet high in fiber, lean meats, eggs, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, antioxidant foods, healthy beverages and low in added sugar and salt help people lose weight, gain weight, lower cholesterol, increase energy, improve brain function, lower blood pressure, reduce cancer risk and have a more positive lifestyle!
You need to eat a lot more food and a lot more fiber!
Diets that exclude foods from any food group are fad diets and do not lead to permanent weight loss or solve any other health issues.
First, try to kick your fiber intake to 40 grams of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
Whatever you do, get your fiber from your food, not from a jar.
Fruits and vegetables have good fiber in them.
Try a breakfast cereal with at least 20% of recommended daily allowance of fiber in it. They are usually low in sugar so there is a double benefit. Blueberries or raspberries on top add more fiber and antioxidants. But fresh or frozen, not the kind in syrup.
Raw nuts are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Avocados are the best.
Lots of beans, peas, and grains are high fiber. Whole grain breads. Fiber kicks up the metabolism so you actually burn more calories. These foods will give you more gas in the beginning but if eaten daily, the bacteria in the digestive tract will elevate lowering the gas output.
This will get you on the path for a healthy daily bowel movement. This helps clean the system and aids healthy digestion.
I know it goes against everything you've heard but eating lots of the right foods will actually help you lose weight!
Next, take a basic daily multivitamin. Don't look at your multivitamin as nutrition but more as an insurance policy. Think of it as filling in the gaps in your daily diet as opposed to a primary source of nutrients. If you are a woman, you may want a plus iron formula.
Last, you HAVE to drink lots of water to be healthy. But you can disguise it. Fill your glass all the way full with ice before pouring low sugar beverages. Try iced green tea with a splash of orange juice in it for sweet. More antioxidants. Add lemon juice to water for flavor. Slice up a cucumber and float it in pitcher of water. Gives it salty fresh taste. But you must drink up to 100 oz of water daily to help your body get rid of waste and the toxins it contains.
You must combine a healthy diet with exercise to multiply the benefit. Whether an hour a day in the weight room or just a 30 minute brisk walk every day, the added benefit of a regular exercise program really do increase and accelerate healthy weight loss.
You will get motivated when the changes start happening, I promise.
