What is the best way to lose weight?
Topic: What is the best way to lose weight?
June 16, 2019 / By Aspen Question:
I am 18 years old, 5'4, about 155 lbs. I lost 15 pounds in the last two weeks because the new medicine I'm causes appetite suppression. Im getting leveled out on it and now I'm starting to eat more again but I'm still motivated to exercise and everything. I wanna do a detox diet this weekend but i need something cheap because I'm in college and don't have extra to spend. And i only eat one meal a day and drink water the rest of the day. My one meal is small because i get full so fast. What foods would be best for me to eat in that meal? Oh and I drink a bottle of orange juice almost every morning. Is there any exercise routines that can help me gain muscle fast besides doing p90x? Like I'm really trying to burn fat in my stomach.

Orange juice has a large amount of sugar. In fact orange juice has over 25% more calories than coke for the same volume. You might want to consider eating an orange (which is much better because of the fibre) or drinking water (maybe with a squirt of lemon juice). Check out: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=100...
In any case you need to eat at least 1600 calories to EFFECTIVELY lose weight. Anything less will begin slowing down your metabolism.
You should eat plenty of non-starchy vegetables - green beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cucumbers, lettuce, cauliflower, asparagus, carrots, kale, etc. Ten plus serves per day.
You should also eat adequate protein and good fats - grass fed meat, fish, eggs, cheeses, nuts & seeds.
You should NOT eat any sugars or starchy foods - potatoes, rice, bread, wheat, flour, pasta, etc. This is a totally DO NOT EAT.
You can slip in fruit occasionally, but no more than one per day.
If you can do this diet you can eat as much of it as you want. You're very unlikely to be able to eat too many calories. You will have an abundance of nutrients. And you will feel full and you will lose weight (fat) in the fastest way possible. Exercise is recommended but it is optional.

Maybe since protein helps to build muscle, cut down on some protein? But not all! .. also if you are just eating healthier but the same volume of food that may also contribute as you still could be eating more than you need to. Try to eat between 1500-2000 calories a day and actually count everything even small bites of things and small snacks - this is where so many hide for me !
Also what kind of exercise arw you doing ? Some are much better for losing weight than others .. zumba is a favourite of mine but also running , dancing and spin ( bike) classes are good. Anything with more cardio .. if you do weight machines to work out too.. to get toned rather than add muscle its good to do a lower weight with more reps. I never go above 15kg and just keep adding reps each month or so.
Also.. drink lots of water it will give you more energy if you're lowering food intake and help to flush everything out.
Good luck ! :) hope you work out how to get to your goal !

Cardio Vascular or CV exercises burn the stomach fat, good way to burn the fat is eat a good breakfast like porridge or whole meal toast with a banana and go for a run, if you run hard enough you can actually feel the calories start to burn off.

That should help you out. From what I see you are not getting nearly enough calories or protein.. You need about 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, which is why whey protein is recommended..With that diet you will not even have enough energy to even do your cardio regimen in the long-run. I would up your calories to at least 2k, and preferably 2.5-3k if you weight lift. Add some lean meats such as skinless chicken breast, tuna, turkey, and etc to your diet. Also you will have more benefits from green tea over black tea. Also do not neglect resistance training/weight lifting when losing weight. You may put on muscle weight, but you will boost your metabolism and lose body fat much more efficiently in the long run.
