80% of weight loss is diet.
You can eat a healthy diet and lose weight.
You can eat a healthy diet and exercise and lose more weight.
You can exercise and eat a poor diet and not lose and even gain weight.
A good healthy diet high in fiber, lean meats, eggs, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, antioxidant foods, healthy beverages and low in added sugar and salt help people lose weight, lower cholesterol, increase energy, improve brain function, lower blood pressure, reduce cancer risk and have a more positive lifestyle!
You need to eat a lot more food and a lot more fiber!
Diets that exclude foods from any food group are fad diets and do not lead to permanent weight loss or solve any other health issues.
First, try to kick your fiber intake to 40 grams of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
Whatever you do, get your fiber from your food, not from a jar.
Fruits and vegetables have good fiber in them. A high fiber diet increases the metabolism.
Try a breakfast cereal with at least 20% of recommended daily allowance of fiber in it. They are usually low in sugar so there is a double benefit. Blueberries or raspberries on top add more fiber and antioxidants. But fresh or frozen, not the kind in syrup.
Raw nuts are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Avocados are the best.
Lots of beans, peas, and grains are high fiber. Whole grain breads. Fiber kicks up the metabolism so you actually burn more calories. These foods will give you more gas in the beginning but if eaten daily, the bacteria in the digestive tract will elevate lowering the gas output.
This will get you on the path for a healthy daily bowel movement. This helps clean the system and aids healthy digestion.
I know it goes against everything you've heard but eating lots of the right foods will actually help you lose weight!
Next, take a basic daily multivitamin. Don't look at your multivitamin as nutrition but more as an insurance policy. Think of it as filling in the gaps in your daily diet as opposed to a primary source of nutrients. Being a young mother, you may want a plus iron formula.
Last, you have to drink lots of water to be healthy. But you can disguise it. Fill your glass all the way full with ice before pouring low sugar beverages. Try iced green tea with a splash of orange juice in it for sweet. More antioxidants. Add lemon juice to water for flavor. Slice up a cucumber and float it in pitcher of water. Gives it salty fresh taste. But you must drink up to 100 oz of water daily to help your body get rid of waste and the toxins it contains.
You must combine a healthy diet with exercise to multiply the benefit. Whether an hour a day in the weight room or just a 30 minute brisk walk every day, the added benefit of a regular exercise program really do increase and accelerate healthy weight loss.
I lost 30 pounds in 5 months by spending my money at the grocery and gym.
As a father I know how hard it is to toss that "perfectly good food" you prepared that your kids didn't eat but you need to do that or the weight just won't go away.

Originally Answered: Fasting/Starving for weight loss - Percentage of fat vs muscle loss?
As usual, the conventional wisdom has some flaws. It seems to depend. A fast can be muscle sparing and fat burning if:
1.) You go into ketogenic state before starting fast (to put your body in fat-as-energy mode)
2.) You exercise some during the fast (cuz muscle is use-it-or-lose-it)
Seems that people should not write off fasting for fat loss due to some misguided notion that you'll lose just as much or more in muscle. You should also know that a lot of water is lost during the fast, and this will come back at end of fast, and quickly - so don't be discouraged - does not mean you are suddenly getting fat again.
-> Keep in mind then, during fasting you are always a couple pounds less on the scale than in reality -- cuz the water will come back.
Read the doctor's responses in 1st link --"By eating fat just before a fast, we "guide" the body to using fat as the preferred energy source. And by using the muscles, we protect them."
try to have a little lean protein with each meal as protein tends to be more satisfying than carbs or fats

okay, to get into shape , speed up your metabolism, rid yourself of excess toxins in your blood or fat to lose weight ,,,,,do as follows:
Stop drinking & smoking (if you do this regularly)
eat fruits & vegetables all you can (buy a food/rice steamer to make it easy on you)...(vegetables might not seem "tasty", like junk foods, at first,,, but can be as you aquire your taste to them..and are loaded with energy and nutrients)...avoid all junk food, cokes, sweets, etc...and drink water . If you eat meat ,,use only steamed, baking or grilled methods for preparing fish or chicken.
also, do an hour of walking each day at least. or some type of excercise.
* you should lose about 10 lbs per month

Originally Answered: What is the difference between weight loss and fat loss? Which of the two is recommended more than the other?
The difference is whether you are losing fat or muscle mass. By exercising when you are losing weight you will be sure to lose the body fat and not the muscle mass. You have to exercise at least 4 times a week. You need to cut all soda and junk foods from your diet not completely or you will feel like you are being punished. Use these things as a once in a while treat. You also need to put fresh vegetables and fruits into your diet along with whole grains. Cut out white bread and add stone ground wheat bread. You must drink plenty of water to help flush toxins out of your system. Don't be in a hurry to lose the weight all at once it is not healthy. You didn't gain it over night you can't expect to loose it over night. If you fall off the diet one day don't dash the diet altogether it is only one day and you are only human. Tomorrow just start over. Good Luck
