You can try www.sparkpeople.com
It is a healthy way to lose weight.
You type in how much you want to lose and by when etc...and they plan out your meals so you can achieve your goal. They have a calorie counter and everything. Plus they give you a fitness plan according to what type of exercising you like to do. The exercises can be done at home like dumbells, resistance bands & ball. They also have demos for strength exercises. You will like it. You can also choose from walking, jogging,or a home video. There's many different options. It's like having a nutritionist and it is free. You also have support from the members. A real neat site. I'm quite impressed.

Originally Answered: Fasting/Starving for weight loss - Percentage of fat vs muscle loss?
As usual, the conventional wisdom has some flaws. It seems to depend. A fast can be muscle sparing and fat burning if:
1.) You go into ketogenic state before starting fast (to put your body in fat-as-energy mode)
2.) You exercise some during the fast (cuz muscle is use-it-or-lose-it)
Seems that people should not write off fasting for fat loss due to some misguided notion that you'll lose just as much or more in muscle. You should also know that a lot of water is lost during the fast, and this will come back at end of fast, and quickly - so don't be discouraged - does not mean you are suddenly getting fat again.
-> Keep in mind then, during fasting you are always a couple pounds less on the scale than in reality -- cuz the water will come back.
Read the doctor's responses in 1st link --"By eating fat just before a fast, we "guide" the body to using fat as the preferred energy source. And by using the muscles, we protect them."
cravings can sneak up on you when you re tired try taking a nap if you feel yourself wanting some junk food

Originally Answered: What is the difference between weight loss and fat loss? Which of the two is recommended more than the other?
The difference is whether you are losing fat or muscle mass. By exercising when you are losing weight you will be sure to lose the body fat and not the muscle mass. You have to exercise at least 4 times a week. You need to cut all soda and junk foods from your diet not completely or you will feel like you are being punished. Use these things as a once in a while treat. You also need to put fresh vegetables and fruits into your diet along with whole grains. Cut out white bread and add stone ground wheat bread. You must drink plenty of water to help flush toxins out of your system. Don't be in a hurry to lose the weight all at once it is not healthy. You didn't gain it over night you can't expect to loose it over night. If you fall off the diet one day don't dash the diet altogether it is only one day and you are only human. Tomorrow just start over. Good Luck
