Question: I've been trying to lose weight, about 15-20 pounds for the summer. The date I want to be finished by is almost 2 months from now (almost exactly). I run and workout about 5 times a week, but the only success of weight loss I get is by eating little or no carbs and calories. I am 5'8, 157lbs, but I don't want to lose my muscle mass. I need your help, I need you to help me with a proper dieting that will be successful in shedding pounds off of my belly.

Weight loss is an overall process and there are no magic answers. Pay no attention to weight loss supplements and pills and all the latest fads. You need to think about many factors but most of them are related to issues we've known about for a very long time. There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me. Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why. Make a few additional small changes - walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars. Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can't get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one. In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy. Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate - in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don't. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies. Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day. Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day. Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body. Vary your routines. Don't eat the same number of calories every day (vary your calories from 1400 a day to 1900 or 2000 some days), eat a variety of foods, and do different kinds and amounts of exercise. You will lose weight much more efficiently if you mix things up from time to time so that your body doesn't adjust to any one routine. An area that many people overlook is getting enough sleep. You are much more likely to overeat or to binge eat if you are tired and not well rested, so get enough sleep. Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc. Here are a few helpful links. http://www.nutrawatch.com/ http://www.caloriesperhour.com/ http://www.helpguide.org/life/healthy_eating_diet.htm http://www.wikihow.com/Lose-Weight-the-Healthy-Way http://weightloss.about.com/cs/fitness/a/aa011503a.htm http://www.webmd.com/fitness-exercise/features/no-weight-workout?page=4

You seriously need to eat breakfast. As cliche as that sounds, it really does start your metabolism and keeps you from overeating later on in the day and or at night. Your junk food intake seems fine since you say that you dont eat much of it. Curious though--what is junk food to you? because some people consider fruit as a type of junk food such as pineapples with all the sugar it has and some people of course know it as a fruit. You say portions are not a problem which is great so I was a little confused about how you weigh 275 because portion control is how most people maintain their weight at a low weight. But it seems that the issue here is not enough meals and not enough exercise. Get to it!!!!--as easy as it sounds, if you just start your day off with 1 cup of oatmeal and sprinkle some raisins on top of that or fruit, you'll see how you feel later on during the day with how hungry you get. I think you should start eating LITERALLY every 2 to 3 hours as well. I'm happy that you bought equipment and i think you should start to use them each day, possibly using one equipment per day ALONG WITH 30 to 40 minutes of pure cardio. Intense Cardio that is if you want to really loose some weight. Do you have a bike? The ones that you can sit down on can probably benefit you since you could even watch some t.v. on it and really get that metabolism going with a visual! Buy some Matzo's too, they are in the Kosher aile and Kashi products are pretty good. As far as snacks, if you really really want to loose weight, i'd try to avoid processed foods and go for natural or homemade snakcs such as a super sized fruit smoothie that you made yourself. ...buy a blender and have some fun w/ it. If you want a snack babe, i'd try to make sure that your eyes actually saw the process of it Hope this helps

Marta Originally Answered: Healthy meals to lose weight? 60 pounds in 5 months. ?
in the morning, i suggest cheerios. They are simple and fairly healthy. Lunch something like a salad will be good, a ham sandwich is also good, make sure to keep the sandwich fairly boring maybe some roast beef,lettuce and mustard. dinner i usually eat grilled chicken salad. im not a nutritionist but i want to help you so that's why food choice isn't my strong point. you cant give up, it will be very very hard to lose weight. Tai Chi is an old Chinese workout that is one of the most effective workouts you will ever do. it may seem simple and not feel like much but 3 hours will burn up to around 700 calories(for your weight). It will build up muscle and make you mentally and physically stronger, i highly highly HIGHLY recommend it. If you want to try it at home first, there is a beginners system that will teach you the basics of taichi, and it is very good. ill give you a link to it on amazon, but i know for fact target sells them. GOOD LUCK! http://www.amazon.com/Gaiam-Tai-Chi-Beginner-Kit/dp/B000BK7F48/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1325716528&sr=8-1 stay away from pastas, bread(sandwiches are ok), no sweets like ice cream, no pop will also help you lose weight, drink lots of water, no fast food what so ever, if you want things to snack on get baked chips, and fruits.
