Well I get off track all the time cuz im married and not as worried about looking hot as I used to. But I have a friend that lost 40 pounds in 4 months. She exercised everyday and dieted. My plan is to have a 1200 calorie intake. . . and to burn off at least 300 each day. I have this app on my ipod that helps me count calories and tells me how much weight I can loose in what amount of time. I actually got it for free its called myfitnesspal (the lady icon one) I heard u can also go to theri website for that too. Anyways its been an awsome help, ^ that friend recommended it to me. EDIT: ^ that cabbage thing is a diet I also tried, turns out its a yo yo diet. U do loose about 10 pounds in one week but then later u gain it all back. Its just water weight. . .

Losing weight is more about how much you eat than it is about what you eat. Eating less calories, regardless of the type of food, will cause you to drop the pounds.

How much you lose es determined by your metabolism which is unique for every person. Without exercise, you stand to lose on average one pound per day on raw foods diet alone. By the way this is a very healthy and natural way to lose weight and I am glad you are choosing this as a lifestyle rather than a diet. Having said that, exercise will help to speed up your metabolism and thereby lose more weight. Try running at least 20 minutes a day, it will do wonders.

I used to lose over 1 pound a week. Um first find out what your bmr is (the number of calories u burn thruout the day) Then eat 500 calories less.. Like my bmr is 1604 a day so i eat 1100 calories a day And at the end of the week i lose like a pound and a half. FIRST I Get up in the morning and go jogging two miles. Then i make a berrysmoothie that only has 100 calories. follow that by 280 sittups (2 sets of 20, 2 sets of 30, 2 sets of 40, then 2 sets of 50) AFTER That if u REALLY Wanna lose weight then eat this soup for a week; cabbage diet;look it up; it has cabbage celery carrots and green beans and its designed to make u lose 10-20 pounds in one week if u eat that Alone, but fer only one week. ANYWAYS i also make 500 calorie meals that i eat after my sittups such as broccoli chicken which is soo good and Healthy! So Yea do that and U will be skinny with abbs In NO TIME.

A thought about your work environment first. I spend about 50% of time in my administrative office and the rest in clinic or lab. I put a drafting table in the admin office so that I could move between it and my desk. That lets me vary my working position between sitting and standing during the day. I use a laptop docked to monitors so that my "electronic brain" can move with me between sites in the office and elsewhere. I feel much better at the end of a work day since implementing this change. On Yahoo!Answers I find the same questions being asked repeatedly. A couple of common question amounts 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. Aloha
