Question: I'm going out with a girl in 2 weeks and want to drop some weight before then. I'm 6'1", 265 lbs., 19 years old. My ultimate goal is to get to 225, but I'd be more than happy if I could get below 250 in 2 weeks. Any suggestions? Also, I have two jobs, I already go to the gym 3 times a week, and I have been cutting back on what I eat.

First of all, let's go the National Institutes of Health site to check desirable weights for height. You can follow this by clicking on the first link below. A healthy BMI (body mass index) is between 18.5 and 24.9. At six foot one, 265 pounds, your BMI is now 35.0. In order to get to a BMI of 24.9, you need to get your weight down to 189. That being said, don't rush the weight loss. Crash diets fail in the long term, and can be very dangerous, sometimes leading to death. "Cardiologist Isadore Rosenfeld, MD, a professor of clinical medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College, in New York City, and author of the forthcoming Doctor of the Heart: A Life in Medicine, opposes crash diets (less than 1,200 calories a day) and detox plans like the Master Cleanse." Click on the second link below for more about crash diets. The sensible thing to do is to limit your weight loss to two pounds per week. Even this modest weight loss goal isn't easy. You must burn about 1000 more calories per day than you consume to make this two-pounds-per-week goal achievable. In order to do this, you need to find some activity that you will stick with that burns a lot of calories. Running is excellent, but at your present weight, you will be putting a lot of stress on your knees and ankles. I would suggest swimming for about an hour a day. Try alternating sprints with lower paced swimming. Walking is good too, but you will need to do a lot of it to burn a lot of calories. As far as diet is concerned, your first step should be to eliminate empty calories: fried fast foods, cakes, candy. soda, donuts, and the like. Eat plants, not food made in plants. All my best to you in your weight loss goals, but don't rush it. It took you many years to get to your present weight. Don't try to shed it in a few short weeks.

Colonic irrigation is great for removing an inch quickly - it gets rid of all the stuff that is sitting inside you, bloating you. Good luck!

sufficient, you will ought to now no longer be 107 at 12!!! provide up ingesting mickey d's and any rapid food places. substitute pop with water. I know that this could look complicated even although i know persons who didnt drink pop for a 300 and sixty 5 days and so that they lost 50 pounds!! human beings consume an entire lotta junk, have your father and mother make you some concern with style or take a glance at some concern from a extra custom each and every nighttime time. (this would not mean chinese language TAKEOUT!!!!) properly success...

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. Aloha
