I would say no longer than two months. The first thing you want to do is to artificially increase your metabolism. To do this add a meal every day to what you normally eat. This works like this: if you eat two meal a day and you have a slow metabolism the body is naturally geared to this. So if you were to cut it down to one meal the bodies metabolism will eventually get slower, at first you would lose weight because it will take time for your body to adjust its metabolism. But eventually it will slow down and you will gain wait from that one meal. So by adding a meal ( just split what you normally eat in a day to 2.5serving and add a .5 serving) your body will eventually understand that fuel is coming so it will increase its metabolism. This is the secret bodybuilders around the world use. That's probally your best tip. So far as workouts, stick to any cardio you can find. No more than 3 times a week to start, and no more than 20 to 30 minutes per session. I would suggest the elliptical or stair climber.

When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together. If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising, start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack, disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target your problem areas for men and women. It's not necessarily to become a bodybuilder or even join a gym - a couple of dumbbells will help you to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

take a 30 second break in the middle of your meal evaluate just how hungry you still are before getting back to your food

a mediterranean diet not only comes with heart benefits studies show it leads to more weight loss than low fat diets

skipping meals can cause your body to go into a fat storing starvation mode making it harder to burn calories

Hi Joahn, You should try to target about 1-2 pounds of fat loss per week, so if you can keep up that pace, you will take about 10-12 weeks to lose 25 pounds. I personally like weight training for fat loss, but any exercise is beneficial. Matt

You don't need to lose that much weight. At the most, you only need to lose about 10-15 pounds, which would take about 1-2 months. I'm 5'6 and 153 pounds and I've been told I look healthy, though I'm about .2 body mass away from being overweight.

pick up a 5 or 10 pound weight at the gym and visualize that weight coming off holding the weight in your hands helps bring home just how heavy even 5 pounds of extra fat can be

Depending on your height that might not be as "sad" as you think. I would suggest a 6 day routine that goes like this: Day 1: Weight Training Day 2: Cardio, something as simple as walking, biking, or swimming will do, but make sure to push yourself and go for at least a half hour but aiming for an 60-90 minutes as that amount of time triggers weight loss Day 3: Yoga, or even better, hot yoga Day 4: Weight Training Day 5: Cardio, I would suggest this time to try to do something fun like play soccer or basketball, but the previous suggestions still work Day 6: Yoga again, it's actually surprising how much you can enjoy yoga and it is so good for you (this is also coming from a guy) The truth about weight training is that the more muscle you put on, the higher rate of metabolism you have. For each pound of muscle you gain you burn an extra 30 calories a day. Also don't worry about looking too muscly, girls are not made to look all muscly and most have to take steroids to look like that. Cardio helps keep your heart healthy and have an affect on your weight if you do enough of it. Yoga is great for your body and helps to strengthen it while burning calories. Now as for diet, the number one rule is DO NOT SKIP MEALS!! skipping meals causes your stomach to shrink faster and send a chemical to your brain that makes you crave high calorie foods. Try to eat ingest more protein as it keeps you feeling full longer. Avoid processed sugars and grains as our bodys were not actually designed to digest these. At all costs avoid MSG, this is a chemical most often in potato chips to preserve them, but it is also made in labs to make rats fat for experiments. And eat cheese and yogurts as they stick to fats in your intestines and get rid of them. Also do not get discouraged at first when you do not see results. This will most likely happen because the first fats to go are visceral fats (look it up) which surround your organs. This is actually the most important type of fat to lose and the first to go when you start to work out and eat healthy.
