Topic: What is the best way to lose the most weight and lose it fast?
December 16, 2019 / By Thane Question:
I am not a cow or anything I just want to lose 20 or 25 pounds. I've always weighed 115 but after having two kids and a pretty big appetit I've gained some weight and I am trying to get ride of it. But I'm having a hard time finding things that work for me. Plus me and my boyfriend have a bet going on whoever loses the most weight by the end of the month wins $300. I have a rutin I eat yogurt and a nutrigrain bar or bannana for breakfast, I eat one of those Lean couizin 250 calories for lunch, and dinner I try to eat small portions of meat and a vegetable or noodles/potatoes or something that I cook at home no fast food. Along with the food diet I ordered these diet pills(DEEP) off the net to try and help. Has anyone taken these?I also exercise before and after dinner. I have a equliptical I use for a hour and then a couple hours later I do 200 stomach crunches and 100 arm curls with 5 lb. weights. I've been doing this for 2 weeks I only lost 2lbs. Can anyone suggest anything else?

Sounds like you are motivated. Don't be discouraged. Here are some aggressive but realistic ideas.
First, for all of the "quick and easy" weight loss diet pill suggestions, remember, if something sounds too good to be true... it probably is, particularly if you have to pay for it.
On Yahoo!Answers I find certain questions being asked repeatedly which is simply a reflection of new people participating. A couple of common questions amount to "How do I lose weight," or more specifically, "How do I lose abdominal fat?" I have gotten very positive responses from my answers when I paused to reply (and now beginning to get "It works!" emails that are very gratifying. I like helping people)... so have recently decided to put a good solid answer on my Yahoo!360 Blog (September 10) that I can point people to. These are my thoughts as a physician and athlete.
Don't target losing more than about 2 lbs per week. If you try to lose faster, your body will go into "starvation mode" and get very stingy about burning calories while at the same time very efficient about storing any calories that you do provide. And it will make you feel awful.
There is no site specific way of losing fat... the old myth about working your abs to burn belly fat isn't true. To get rid of love handles, you need to lose overall fat. That happens with exercise and watching your diet. More on that below.
The most effective way to lose fat is aerobic exercise in the "moderate" fat-burning range, ideally first thing in the morning before you eat. When you wake your body is ready to burn fat and your levels of growth hormone are highest at that time. Later in the day it can take up to 30 minutes just to put your body into a fat-burning mode.
Another overlooked way to burn fat is by lifting weights. Skeletal muscle has very high caloric needs... almost twice that of adipose (fat) tissue. Put on a little muscle and you will burn calories all day even at rest. Be aware that skeletal muscle weighs more, so with this approach you may see your weight increasing while your body fat is melting away. Not realizing this often stresses folks who think they should be losing weight as a measure of fitness. Forget the scale, look in the mirror and you will be happy.
To lose a pound of fat, you need to eliminate about 3500 calories. You can do this by burning more with exercise or by modifying your diet to reduce intake. If you do a Google search on say, "swimming calories" you will quickly find a website with tables of calories burned for a given exercise. You can use such lists to estimate how many calories you are burning up with your routine.
For diet, keep a diary for a couple of weeks counting calories, grams of protein, and grams of fat intake. It is easy with online sources of nutritional information (type the name of the food and calories into the Google search engine) and packaging labels. That will let you quickly figure out where the fat is coming from in your diet.
Fat gives you 9 calories per gram. So take the number of grams of fat, multiply by 9, then calculate what percentage the fat calories are of your total daily calories. Restricting the calories from fat to about 20% of your total intake is ideal for a maintenance diet... that isn't overly restrictive. Of note, you need some fat in your diet. For instance, the body uses fat to produce hormones. Once you have a picture of how to modify your diet, you can drop the diary and just go back to it occasionally if you are wanting to tweek things further.
There is a subset of questions that goes further and asks about "How to get a six-pack?" The answer is the same. Six-packs are 20% abdominal exercise and 80% diet. There is one caveat... abdominal muscles will form in the position that you work them, so be certain to pull them tightly toward your spine while doing crunches, etc. Also, during most lifting, the "core is active" which means that you should be stabilizing with contracted abs then too. Fail to do this and the abs will form, but bulging outward and the result is not attractive.
If you are trying to build muscle as a way to lose fat, then you may need to increase total calories and specifically your protein intake. I target about 0.8 g of protein per pound of body weight each day when actively building. That is far more protein than most people need in their diets.

You can't expect to lose too many pounds by starving yourself. Your body will start to store any food as fat because you aren't eating. Best way is to eat low fat foods and work out consistently. Its unhealthy to lose too many lbs in one week. Get a workout buddy and goto the gym.
Most people would tell you diet and exercise more. Well I've got a way you can lose 40 pounds in 2 months. Want to know why! 1. Set Up Realistic Weight Loss Goals. Don't set a weird goal like 10 pound a day no. 2. Drink Plenty of Water. Drink about 6-8 glass of water per day. 3. Chew More Slowly when You Eat. If you eat 5 smaller a day you will accomplish your goal, but pleas don't eat three enormous meal. That would actual get you fatter. 4. Exercise at least 30 minuets per day. Pleas stay away from pills they could kill you, some pills could help but there is a few that do help. If you follow this correctly you will achieve your weight goal.

Start smoking and washing down those diet pills with Red Bull. OK, that will work... but it will put you in an early grave. It's really just simple math: burn more calories than you take it. It's not easy, but here is one way to do it:
-Eat less fat and sugar and drink more water.
-Eat 5-6 smaller meals instead of 3 larger ones (this will raise your metabolism).
-Do 20+ minutes of cardio before breakfast every morning (any exercise that raises your heart rate will do).
-Work out with weights every other day.
-Be consistent! Most people don't have the time or the self-control to really get into shape and lose weight. Good luck!

I will try to keep it simple. Your metabolism is basically the rate at which your body burns calories to create energy. So the faster your metabolism, the faster you burn calories and the easier it is to lose unwanted weight. To boost your metabolism naturally you just need to eat the right foods.
You can sit down and literally eat a 1,000-calorie dinner and yet be absolutely starving just a few hours later and the reason is simple: Because your body didnt get what it needed in those 1,000 calories so it sends signals to your brain telling you to ingest more calories and thus, the late-night cravings. That means that the surest way to end those late-night cravings and keep your weight loss goals on track is to eat a more balanced, nutritious diet that actually gives your body what it needs.
It's VERY EASY to lose weight if you eat the right foods. Check out Dr. Charles Livingston's video here: http://www.sexyjese.com - it will blow your mind.

eat 5 small meals a day. figure out what you calorie intake was before and eat 500 less calories per day. this does not mean less food, this means eat healthier food. drink at least a half a gallon of water per day especially if you are taking diet pills, they dehydrate you very quickly. Do your workouts first thing in the morning before you eat. Your body won't be burning sugars or carbs it will burn fat because you haven't eaten since the night before. Stay away from high starch carbs such as pasta and potatoes these prevent you from burning the fat. These foods take a long time for your body to burn up. And if you are really dedicated add another aerobic workout before you go to bed. the most important is being disciplined and consistent. be patient

To lose weight fast, you need to use up more energy than you consume. It'll take both exercise and diet. Try what this lady did. She lost 30# in a month: http://voices.yahoo.com/how-lost-30-poun...
