Has anybody tried the Fat Loss Factor weight loss program?
Hey there everybody. My name is Jeffrey and I'm looking into getting more in shape. I was hoping there would be plenty of people here who have tried this weight loss program called Fat Loss Factor? I'd really like to know if this has actually helped people or if it is a scam? Please let me know! Thanks
There has been a lot of speculation about this product and it's integrity.. You will always have people who have doubts and people who think any program is a scam. When in reality, it's most likely that those people failed to pay very close attention to the specific details weight loss programs like this give out. I personally have tried this and many other things to lose weight and as long as you follow it step by step you will see results. It's up to you to decide whether you have enough self encouragement to actually see results for weight loss. I ordered mine from a website that gives some decent information about this. Feel free to take a look in the link I'll provide below.

What is the best video workout series to do in order to lose weight and get fit the fastest?
I have been looking at doing investing in a video workout series in order to lose some weight and get toned before a wedding in June. I have been looking into SLIM 6, P90X, Insanity, and Brazilian Butt Lift. Can anyone personally recommend one of these programs? What kind of results did you see? How restrictive is the diet plan? Does it tone you up or bulk you up? If you have tried multiple of these programs which one works best? Or would you not recommend any of these? Please let me know!
I would go with p90x. I have used it a few times and it is a good fat burning workout. Before you invest for the purpose of losing weight I think you should read my article. Too many people have been mislead by the media into believing weight loss and exercise are tied together. The fact is diet is 90% of weight loss and weight gain. Think about it, can you gain weight if you didn't eat? Here is weight loss information I put together. I always recommend that you educate yourself in addition to this about proper nutrition, after all, eating is something you will do the rest of your life. It is important that you understand how your body works. Each day when you wake up your metabolism rises to its highest level of the day. Metabolism is what you need to be concerned with for weight loss. As the day goes on your metabolism drops at a rate which is specific to every individual, but we can alter this metabolic drop with diet and exercise (a secondary factor). In order to raise your metabolism you need to space your meals apart into 6 rather than 3 meals. The reason being is that when your body is digesting food it raises your metabolism because your body is burning energy. To keep this burning going on, you need to eat more often throughout the day, but have smaller portions than a 3 meal diet. The next important factor is what food you are eating, one of the most important factors in weight loss. The main foods to eat are the following; poultry(chicken or turkey), eggs, fish(all types), whey protein shakes, beans, potatoes & yams, brown rice, oatmeal, whole grains (breads, crackers), green vegetables, nuts, fruits (bananas do the most for you) and some dairy (low fat yogurt, low fat cheese). Due to the media, we have been taught to hate all carbs, but the fact is that the media is notorious for leaving out information such as the difference between a good and bad carb. Good carbs are complex carbs (whole grains, oatmeal, beans and brown rice). Bad carbs are simple sugar carbs (candy, soda, table sugar, chips, pizza dough, and the list just goes on). You NEED to eat good carbs to lose weight, they are full of dietary fiber which helps your body flush out waste. If you have trouble losing weight you do not cut out a particular food all together, you just reduce the portion size. In order to remain healthy you must get the nutrients from ALL the foods included. Here is a sample meal plan;
Breakfast- 2-3 Eggs (2 yolks removed) , ½ cup oatmeal, 1 piece of fruit, a low fat yogurt (light and go fit)
Snack 1- 20-25 gram Whey protein shake, 1 piece of whole grain toast with 1 tbsp peanut butter, ½ piece of fruit
Lunch- Grilled Chicken over salad with 2 tsp low fat dressing, 1 serving vegetables other than salad
Snack 2- 20-25 gram Whey protein shake, handful of nuts or trail mix, ½ piece of fruit
Dinner- Meat of your choice with either a ½ potato or 1/3 cup of brown rice, 2 servings of vegetables
Snack 3- 20-25 gram Whey protein shake, 6-10 whole grain crackers with peanut butter or thinly sliced cheese.
It is also very important to drink at minimum 64 ounces of water a day. Water will help flush your digestive track, keep you hydrated, feeling full, and help remove toxins from your body. This is a great meal plan, but what does exercise have to do with weight loss. Well here is a simple reminder to always remember; exercise = muscle toning, nutrition/diet = weight loss/weight gain. Exercise does play a very important role in our lives, but it is not the factor to weight loss. Exercise helps us raise our metabolism, which helps us burn fat at a faster rate. However, you can exercise and not lose a pound due to poor diet. Many people argue that they can jump on a treadmill for an hour and lose 2-3 lbs, but you’re not actually losing fat weight, just water that comes out in the form of sweat; this weight is then replaced when you drink water later on. I also want to debunk one more myth that not eating will lose weight, this could not be more far from the truth. The reason is that when the body is deprived of food it goes into what is known as starvation mode, this is when the body tries to use less energy (fat) and stores it for later on because it is not receiving enough nutrients now. This is a starting point to achieve the weight loss goals you have.
Because fruits are simple carbs should they be avoided in order to achieve a 6 pack?
I have apples and oranges, should I not eat them because of them being in the category as simple carbs. So fruits make you fat? Also prevent you from obtaining a 6 pack is this true?
If your goal is to get a shredded set of abs, yeah, limit the amount of fruit you eat. Of course they are good for you and part of a balanced diet, blah blah..... But if youre not genetically prone to have abs, you need a pretty hardcore diet to get your body fat down to ripped abs low.
Once you get ur abs, then you can add more fruit to your diet though. Since you will be maintaining, not trying to lose.
*Low carb / no sugar diets are great for losing fat. Its no fad. Bodybuilders have been eating low carb for years and years to get really lean before competition. Its just become popular fair recently. Yes lowering calories is really the key to fat loss, but there are other factors at work.
What should I eat in order to lose weight?
I need to lose like 10 pounds. And, I want to do it by summer break, if at all possible. See, I have been delaying, and delaying losing weight as much as possible, and now I just need to suck it up and lose it. My question is that, what foods should I eat in order to lose weight.
And also, how much exercise should I do in order to lose weight as well. I have heard it's 90% diet, 10% exercise.
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.
How many calories can I consume a day to maintain my current weight?
I'm 18, 5'3", and 102lbs. How many calories can I consume a day in order to maintain my current weight and not gain weight? Please help? I don't wanna gain or lose.
The very first thing to get this answer is to calculate your basal metabolic rate (BMR).. BMR is actually the energy required by your body for basic functions such as breathing and other physiological processes in the body.. This BMR has to be multiplied with the activity factor to estimate the daily calorie requirement.. If your calorie intake is similar to your daily calorie requirement, you will neither gain or lose weight..
There is a software/calculator for this.. Refer to the website below.. I just googled it out.. All you need is just entering your height, weight, and how active you are..I hope it helps you =)
