Question: I'll be going back to college in 2 days, and have gained a LOT of weight these past 8 months(about 25lbs) I'm 5'9" and 215lbs, and I really want to lose weight quickly. I know it won't happen overnight, but what's the best way to slim down? I plan to swim daily and run on treadmills daily as well, along with the obvious weight-room sessions to gain muscle. How effective are treadmills and pools for weight loss, and are there other better exercises? I also plan to eat healthier, fyi.

These are the best ways to lose weight. You should go on the treadmill for 30 minutes a day and only eat 1200 calories per day. 4-5 meals of only 200-250 calories per meal. you dont want to eat up what you burnt! good luck!

i really understand that you get annoyed about these tips as cut out junk food and excersise , hah. But this is what you should do : make sure that while you are losing weight that you are eating healthy , and make sure that it isnt WATER WEIGHT which you lose , cause thats just bad and when you begin too eat normally you will gain weight super fast. So dont starve yourself. but this is what you should do , you should eat only when your hungry , ( when your stomach wants food ) and when you eat , dont eat very much. cause what counts is calories. Calories will is the thing that makes you gain and lose weight , right ? Too little calories for your body will eventually make you lose weight , and too much calories for your body will make you gain weight in the long run. So.. 1 ) Eat only when hungry , and dont eat big portions just because your hungry. 2 ) Avoid foods containing alot calories ( if its not healthy food ) if its healthy i really doubt it contain so much calories , but still. 3 ) Keep up excersising , and if your only excersising because you want to lose weight then you should do excersises that make you lose weight not that only makes you gain muscles , which will lead to weight gain. 4 ) Drink very much water. something i heard just.. 5) drink 2-3 big cups of Green tea per day or every other day, it will take away some Stomach fat. and other fat i think. but i only heard stomach fat.

I found the book to be very informative and easy to read. I've lost 17 pounds in 12 days, I'm just concerned that I'm losing too much weight, too quickly. I will admit I haven't followed the guide exactly. I'm not sticking perfectly to the listed foods and meal plans (but mostly) and doing very little exercise, but the weight keeps flying off. It clearly works and if I'd followed it exactly I think it would scare the living daylights out of me because of the amount that I'd lose. So thanks again for the information. I've never purchased anything like this before because they are usually full of trash, but 3WD has been a pleasant surprise. Get started today!

always have vegetables on hand saute a big bag of frozen mixed vegetables in olive oil and garlic add some red pepper or turmeric for additional flavor and separate into portion sized containers for the fridge
