Topic: How to lose weight if im already a decent size?
June 20, 2019 / By Babs Question:
Before you say "You dont need to lose weight!" Im not saying im fat, I just have some problem areas left. Im 120 pounds and im around 5'4. I know you cant spot reduce, so basically id just like to know how to lose 10 pounds of fat and gain 5 back in muscle? I can do cardio everyday to lose fat and maybe strength train after? I honestly don't have a clue haha. Im a female as well :]
Would becoming a vegetarian help?
How long would it take to lose ten pounds? one month? two months?
id be working out everyday for more than two hours, and id be on a diet of 1'200 calories.

okay, to get into shape , speed up your metabolism, rid yourself of excess fat and lose weight ,,,,,do as follows:
Stop drinking & smoking (if you do this regularly)
eat fruits & vegetables all you can (buy a slow cooker /food steamer & rice/pasta cooker to make it easy on you)...(vegetables might not seem "tasty", like junk foods,, but can be as you aquire your taste to them..and are loaded with energy and nutrients)...avoid all junk food, cokes, sweets, etc...and drink mainly water (green tea , juice & milk being the other options you drink). If you eat meat ,,use only steamed, baking or grilled methods for preparing fish or chicken.
also, do an hour of walking each day at least. or some type of excercise.
* you should lose about 10 lbs per month

Well I have to say one thing, I don't know how cerials work with you but they never work with me i always wind up making too many somehow in a bowl! So I normally just make toast, it takes longer to make so I don't get too tempted to make it more than once. So for breakfast i'd normally go for 2 slices of either white/wholemeal and a piece of fruit. (I normally have an apple). Then a sandwich for dinner with maybe another piece of fruit - places like tesco do prepacked ones so you can count the calories. Then for tea i'd go for something like one fish, some veg like peaas & carrots, or i'd go for that batterless fish have a few piece and some veg, a slice of wholemeal with it, and a piece of fruit again. <-- the calories in this must only be around 1200-1500, but yeah i say track your calories anyway.
ALSO. If you're gonna use a lot of weight let me tell you one thing! You can lose weight with diet alone, but one: exercise makes it faster & TWO: most importantly i think you have less chance of having excess skin if you exercise too or it not as bad. I would definitely implement this. (I didn't and I've some excess skin -.- ) so .. yeah. that's about all i know. Not sure about the whey protein sorry dunno .. as for supplements all you really need at a minimal level is to make sure you're taking a multivitamin supplement each day. maybe a calcium pill or 2 like one at morn, one at night (depending on the dosage in the tablets) to help keep your bones strong for your exercise routines.

if you are already at the optimal size and simply want to tone areas, then focus on those ares specifically.

you have to eat at least 1200 -1500 calories a day if your active. dont reduce calories and dont become a vegan to lose fat. its a lifestyle change not a dietary one

You could try trying to relax and unwind prior to going to sleep at night as this helps a lot of people with sleep problems.
Essential oils can be used to help you get a good nights sleep. Here are some of the top essential oils which can calm and relax, helping to you to fall asleep more easily and get a good nights rest.
Lavender helps to calm the nervous system and relax the body. Lavender is used in aromatherapy to fight insomnia, anxiety, depression and fatigue.
Mandarin is a wonderful gentle oil that is popular for use with children. It helps encourage sleep by easing nervous tension and soothing irritability.
Chamomile has a good relaxing effect on the nervous system. The oil can be used as for other essential oils (see below). Alternatively try a cup of Chamonile tea about half hour before bed
Bergamot as a great stress relieving oil to help you relax. This citrus fragrance encourages restful sleep and is believed to be a natural anti-depressant.
There are a few different ways of using these essential oils to help you sleep.
- Skin application or Massage. Never apply essential oils directly on your skin, make sure to dilute in a carrier or vegetable oil. (you will need about 5 teaspoons of carrier oil for every 10 drops of essential oils) Massage the blend into feet and hands or around the neck, shoulders or upper back if you get tense in these areas.
- Bath. For an adults bath, add 4-6 drops of essential oil just before you get in and swish this around to mix well. Essential oils do not dissolve readily in water but will disperse if well mixed. Do not prepare the bath in advance as much of the volatile oil will be lost. Don't be tempted to add more oil, even if the amount looks tiny. Essential oils are very concentrated and the number of drops suggested is more than sufficient. Allow plenty of time for a relaxing soak for at least 10 minutes, or up to 20 minutes if you can! Some of the oil will adhere to the skin and some will be inhaled as an aromatic vapour
- Inhalation: can simply add a few drops of the oil onto a tissue and tuck inside your pillow case so you will inhale the oil through the night for better quality sleep or add the essential oil to an aromatherapy vaporiser. Do not use an oil burner with a candle as it is not safe to leave this burning while you are asleep.
