  3. QUESTION:
    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!

    • ANSWER:
      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.

  4. QUESTION:
    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?

    • ANSWER:
      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.

  5. QUESTION:
    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.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      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.

  6. QUESTION:
    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.

    • ANSWER:
      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 =)

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How long will it take to lose weight and gain muscle?
    I'm 5'7" and I weight 170. I have been doing cardio to lose fat. Once I lose my goal for fat loss I will start lifting weights and etc. My question is how long will it take to lose all the fat I want (about 20 pounds) and gain a good amount of muscle? I know it it probably going to take several months. I just want a decent estimate.

    • ANSWER:
      If you're new to muscle building, you're probably eager to know how much muscle you can gain in a few months time. There are a vast number of ideas online about how much muscle you can actually gain, so it's hard to know for sure what the correct answer is.

      However, to be honest, there is no correct answer, there can only be predictions or assumptions because everybody will gain muscle at different rates. Just because you read about someone who put on 20 pounds of muscle amazingly quick, doesn't mean the same will happen for you too. There's a variety of factors that will influence how fast you build muscle such as how you workout, how you eat and how disciplined you are at keeping a good routine.

      If you're determined to build muscle fast and you do everything right, you can definitely get some good results, but some people will still gain muscle faster than others. This is due to genetics, everybody will notice different results because every person is different.

      You should not lose motivation if you find that you're not building as much muscle as some of the people around you, just use that to motivate you further and find out what aspect of your diet or workouts you can improve. There's a lot to learn about building muscle, it's not as easy as lifting some weights and drinking protein shakes which unfortunately a lot of people will do with their busy lifestyles.

      You need to ensure that your making every aspect of your diet and workouts as good as you can, in the long term this will definitely pay off.

      So back to how much muscle you could expect to gain, bear in mind that his is still an estimate and for you it could be different. You could perhaps gain somewhere between 5 and 15 pounds of solid muscle in a year. You may find places that say you can build much more muscle than this in a year, but these figures often include the weight of fat that has to be gained alongside your new muscle. If you can gain 5-15 pounds of solid muscle each year, this will really add up several years down the road, just make sure you read a lot about muscle building so that you can use your time effectively and see results faster.

  2. QUESTION:
    How much to cycle everyday to lose weight?
    I've finished University now for the year and back at home for the summer, meaning that I am no longer going to the gym and there's no decent gym near where I live. So I thought about grabbing the bike out and go for a ride everyday since I haven't done any exercise outside anyway.

    I've been at the gym for 6 months and lost just over a stone, bear in mind we (my personal trainer) focused on building muscle first.I want to speed up the fat loss ready fro when I go back to uni, show everyone that I'm a different person (since uni is making me a new person already).

    So if I was to cycle every morning, how much should I do? Or should have some rest days? What's the best way to around this?

    Info:

    • ANSWER:
      Please accept my apologies for not converting my Lb to metric units... I'm american :/

      I believe you are possibly asking the wrong question. The true answer to the question is anywhere from 0-24 hours of cycling, which is a pretty useless answer :D.

      Weight loss has 2 parts and exercise alone usually isn't the best strategy if weight loss is your goal. Diet tends to be a much more substantial factor in weight loss.

      Example: 1 mile of jogging is approximately equal to 100 calories burned, which is approximately equal to 1 piece of bread.

      If you work both ends of the equation you will have best results. Try supplementing your exercise program by tracking your caloric intake. Food journals are a proven traditional method. There are also websites and phone applications that can help track intake. You will need to find out what your you maintenance intake is, that is how many calories you should intake to maintenance you current weight. There are plenty of tools online for this, I linked one in the source section. From there you just subtract 500 calories from you daily total for every lb you want to lose, per week. Here is some of the math.

      There are 3500 calories in 1 lb of fat, in your body. 3500 / 7 days in a week = 500 calories per day. This is the amount of DEFICIT you need to run to lose 1 lb of fat.

      Scenario: My maintenance calories are 2000, I biked long enough to burn off 400 calories and I ate 1100. 2000 - 400 -1100 = 500 extra calories. Since I didn't use these extra calories, they contribute to my weight loss.

      Hope you found this helpful. Good luck!

  3. QUESTION:
    Does the fat loss factor program work?
    I am 250 pounds and I'm 16, I've checked online for reviews for the last couple of hours and about half the people say it is good and the other half say it is bad. I am really serious about losing weight and I am really dedicated. People say that the first two weeks are torture and the rest is a lot easier, is this true? I am willing to go through torture for 2 weeks so I can lose a lot of weight. It cost and I really want to lose 90 pounds in 5 months (and gain muscle too). Will it work?

  4. QUESTION:
    How can i lose body fat without losing weight?
    I weigh 116, im 5'5 and im 15
    i used an online bmi calculator, and im 6 pounds away from being underweight.

    this is strange because i have body fat everywhere, but mostly my thighs, stomach, upper arms, and calves. ESPECIALLY CALVES.
    i know its im possible to lose fat from a specific part of the body. and i know cardio exercises is one way to lose body fat.
    HOWEVER, ive been running on the treadmill for almost 4 weeks everyday for an hour, and swimming for about 2 hours.
    i used to weigh 127, now i weigh 116. im losing weight but im NOT losing fat?

    i also try to eat healthy too.

    my question is, how can i lose body fat without losing weight??

    thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You probably are losing fat. You may also be experiencing some water weight loss and some weight errors. Be sure to watch this video. --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYMNPP2ZR1U&feature=plcp

      BMI is only accurate for people with average body types. You are probably not average but more toward the thin or slender ectomorpic body type. If so, the BMI scale won't apply to you. You should use percent body fat (%bf) instead to make sure that as you lose fat, you don't drop below 10%...your essential fat limit.

      You'll need to buy some calipers like this --> http://www.heartratemonitors.com/hrmfat.html?productid=hrmfat&channelid=FROOG or this --> http://www.heartratemonitorsusa.com/accufitness-f3k.html?productid=accufitness-f3k&channelid=FROOG&utm_source=CSEs&utm_medium=GoogleShopping&utm_campaign=heartratemonitorsusa .

      Then follow the instructions that come with the calipers or use a website like this ---> http://www.muscleandstrength.com/tools/how-to-measure-bodyfat-using-calipers.html or this --> http://www.free-online-calculator-use.com/skin-fold-test.html#Chest .

      Measuring body fat with calipers is tricky and requires some practicing until you begin to get consistent and accurate measurements. Obese people can't expect good results from using this method. Don't expect extreme accuracy because there is not accurate way to measure body fat. Using calipers in the best way possible should get you within 3-5% of your actual body fat percent.

      Also, don't focus too much on the numbers without a good reason. How much body fat you have is not about numbers. It's about how you look and how you feel. Ultimately those will be the determining factors.

      For more information, go here --> http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/01/02/healthmag.measuring.body.fat/index.html

      Continue losing fat if you need to. If you're not trying to lose fat, eat more food. And, running is not a good form of exercise. You should increase the incline and walk. Here's why.

      Don't run for fitness alone. Run marathons if you compete and are willing to take the risk. But, don't run for fitness without a good reason because running is high impact and repetitive and that means risking problems if you run long distances for a long time. Running contributes to or causes shin splints, repetitive motion stress fractures, ACL strains or separations, early onset osteoarthritis, and much more. And, then there's this........

      In this book --> http://www.bodybyscience.net/home.html/?… the coauthors make the following assertion.

      "The scientific literature is filled with data that strongly make the case that long distance runners are much more likely to develop cardio-vascular disease, atrial fibrillation, cancer, liver and gallbladder disorders, muscle damage, kidney dysfunction (renal abnormalities), acute microthrombosis in the vascular system, brain damage, spinal degeneration, and germ-cell cancers than are their less active counterparts."

      Each assertion is footnoted. They're making the point that most people have "cardio" all wrong and don't really understand how to train to be fit. Even the American Heart Assoc. is no longer recommending jogging but "brisk walking" instead and they've included strength training as a tool to improved cardio-vascular health.

      And the problems continue...

  5. QUESTION:
    I need to know how hypothyroidism relates to the Southbeach Diet and how the two interract with each other?
    I am familiar with both of them, but would like to hear personal experiences or any knowledge of the two together. Does anyone believe that the Southbeach diet could be easier/harder than other diets with the hypothyroid factor included? Serious answers only please. I'm also posting this in the diseases and conditions section. Thanx!

    • ANSWER:
      There are a few factors to consider. To start, are your T4 and TSH levels within the "normal range" and do you feel like you're taking a proper dosage of thyroid hormone? If not, it will be difficult to set realistic weight loss goals, but you can still start by changing your eating habits and staying active. You should make an appointment with your doctor to test your levels and get the proper dosage.

      Also, have you gained weight as a result of the hyporthyroidism? If you have and feel like you eat relitively well, talk to your doctor about what you can do to boost your metabolism. You may be on the wrong dosage.

      If you are on the right dosage, I think the diet has to be something that is realistic as a life choice. Do you enjoy cooking? Are you good a planning meals? Do you eat out a lot? I know for me, dieting is difficult because I have somewhat of a low motivation for planning meals, and I don't follow strict recipes when cooking. I bought the South Beach diet book, read it, tried it for a couple months and lost weight, but I didn't like it. I felt like I was on a diet and wanted a "diet" that I could enjoy and do for te rest of my life. I've been successful with cutting back on refined sugars and carbohydrates and having small meals throughout the day with weight watchers online. There is a cool online journal I use.

      The most imprtant thing is to know your body. I know if I eat a large meal or certain foods, I will feel lethargic. There are certain foods I just don't eat because my metabolism is a little slower - like fried and high fat foods.

      So to answer your question, I don't think the SB diet is easier or harder that other diets...it really depends on your motivation and what type of foods you enjoy. I would say to try it for a month and see what happens! Good luck!

  6. QUESTION:
    What if I ate more protein than I was supposed to?
    I read online that if you eat more protein grams than you're supposed to, you could gain weight. I'm only supposed to have 40 grams per day, and yesterday I had 60. But my total caloric intake was 1200. I know that it's impossible to gain weight on 1200, so what could really happen if I ate too much protein? Please answer only if you really know.

    • ANSWER:
      Eating 20 grams more isn't going do much, it's only 80 calories. I think you'll be fine.

      The amount of protein you are supposed to have can't be determined by a law of averages for everyone. If you are working out, I believe you need more protein, than the daily requirements by the RDA. The thing is don't eat more grams of protein than carbs. Since carbs are used for energy and protein for growth and healing, carbs will be used more steadily than protein.

      below is some research on too much protein and not enough carbs.

      If your body does not have enough carbohydrates and has too much protein, it enters into a state known as ketosis. Ketosis is the accumulation in the blood of ketones (byproducts of fat oxidation) and represents the body’s adaptation to fasting or starvation. The theory behind low-carbohydrate diets is that inducing a constant state of ketosis cause people to lose weight regardless of how many calories from protein and fat are consumed because it causes the body to eventually burn fat for energy. Ketosis increases insulin resistance and glucose intolerance. Insulin resistance is a major risk factor for the development of coronary artery disease, and glucose intolerance has been linked to hypertension and dyslipidemia. Maintaining a state of ketosis can also result in mild dehydration because the kidneys are burdened by having to rid the body of excess nitrogen. This can cause dizziness, headaches, confusion, nausea, fatigue, sleep problems, and worsening of kidney problems.

      If you are eating too much protein and not enough carbohydrates, it is likely you are not eating enough fiber. Low intake of fiber can cause constipation, and may contribute to the development of hemorrhoids, diverticulosis, polyps, colon cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.

      High protein intake is also associated with an increased risk of osteoporosis due to calcium loss. When protein is digested, amino acids break apart and pass into the blood making the blood slightly acidic. Since your body needs to have a balanced pH level, calcium is pulled from the bones to neutralize acidity. Therefore, the more protein you have in your diet, the more acidic your blood will be and the more calcium that will be needed. Animal proteins (i.e. meats) are the main culprit of this cycle; grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits act as calcium savers.

      In addition to calcium loss, maintaining a low-carbohydrate intake may be associated with an increase in blood pressure with age due to deficiencies of high-carbohydrate, high-fiber foods that protect against hypertension.

      Consuming too much protein and not enough carbohydrates also results in poor athletic performance and impaired ability to have an effective workout due to depletion of glycogen stores, which the body burns for energy during exercise; carbohydrates are the body’s main source of glycogen. This is counter-productive, since most people either eat excessive protein under the assumption of either losing weight or building muscle mass and size; however these goals cannot be achieved without a proper exercise program.

      good luck, hope this helps
