weight loss?

okay, so I know almost everything there is to know about losing weight effectively. I love to give advice to people on how to lose weight. Am I in good shape? Hellz no! I am 50 lbs overweight and 21 years old in college. I know all this stuff about losing weight, yet I cannot apply to myself. Why am I not strong enough to do this? I can barely resist eating. I love food so much. Taco bell, pizza, quesadillas, hot pockets, cola, the list goes on. I am addicted to food, I eat when I'm not hungry because I crave the taste of it. I have asked for the strength to resist these temptations but to no avail. It seems hopeless that I will ever be average weight. I dont' need weight loss advice per se...I need ways to become strong enough to resist my strongest temptations...any suggestions?
I should mention that I do get up off my butt and try to stay active, I'm not that lazy, it's just that the amount of calories I am able to consumer is far more I can burn off at my activity level, in the shape I am in, I can't do extremely heavy workouts, in fact running hurts my legs, any kind of weight training will deal a lot of pain, right now, I basically try to walk a lot, because it's basicall what I can do right now without noticing bad side effects.

You need to go to therapy to find out what the underlying cause may be. it has to be more than a craving...maybe a hormone imbalance or something medically or mentally out of whack. you need to start exercising and eat fresh fruits/vegies, berries and fiber when you want to eat the junk food. occupy your time with reading, walking, hanging out with friends, etc. attend church. having God on your side always helps.  (+ info)

Weight Loss?

I have a few medical conditions that prevent me from exercising as much as I would like and I take medication that makes me put on weight.

I have put on a little bit of weight lately and just wanting to get rid of it but have tried cutting down on fatty foods etc and exercising more but nothing is helping!!

Wanting some tips on weight loss - Stuff that actually works!!

Here is a place that reviews a bunch of weight loss programs, dieting aides, supplements and so on. The site even has categories like diabetes, low fat and hypnosis. Pretty cool site.


Many of the programs listed have consumer reviews, so you can read what others think of the different products and programs before you decide on one for yourself.

Hope this helps!  (+ info)

Weight loss?

I want to lose 20 - 30 pound by the beginning of November. I need to know what foods to eat. I will be going and walking/running everyday after school as well.

I'm 5'9 i have a large body frame. I weigh somewhere around 190.
The healthy weight range for my height is 150 - 170.

Any tips on how to maximize my weight loss in that amount of time. Thanks.

you need to do 200 minutes of cardio a week. Remember fat does not turn into muscle, so you need to lose your fat while putting on muscle. The 45 minute thing is not true, but don't over 60 minutes at a time.

Do 5-10 minutes of cardio to warm up, then do your weight training. Do 30 to 60 minutes more of cardio, then go home.

The best time to eat is just after your workout within an hour when your metabolism is raging. For your muscles, incorporate some isolated soy protein or whey protein. Whey is more potent but the soy tastes better!

Don't look at your scale as the be all and end all, but get a measuring tape to check your progress, and that will show more tangible results.

Good luck and stick at it.  (+ info)

I just need to know what pills food and work outs can i do to have rapid weight loss plus i want to be the hot girel all guys at boot camp want

Diet wise, you know, no junk. no processed food.

* Instead of having 3 large meals in a day, have 5-6 small meals. Make sure to keep a gap of 2-3 hours between two consecutive meals. It will help speed up your metabolism and result in burning of more calories. Have protein, carbs & fat in a 40/40/20 percentage.
* Drink at least 8 glasses of water in a day. The more you increase your water consumption, the better it is.
* Never ever skip meals or eat too less in order to lose weight. It will only make your metabolism slower, resulting in an even slower burning of calories.
*check out this site to determine how many calories you need daily to sustain you weight - then eat less.

Check with the gym trainers on food supplements like whey protein.

Now I know you want a quick fix, too, and a pill that helps burn fat. Try Hydroxycut. Worked for me, but it's not cheap & can wreak havoc with your system.

That said, there's a cardio training regimen called High-intensity interval training (HIIT). You sprint & walk. Can take only 15/20 minutes a day, 3/4 times a week. It is the current best way to raise your metabolism & burn fat. Here's a site that describes it in detail.


Also, to help tone that tummy try core exercises. A coupla sites:

The problem with your question is that if you look in "search for questions" it comes up 30 times every day. I have had some criticism for repeatedly using the same answer, but since I am happy with my answer, and the questions are the same, I don't see the issue with recycling the same answer.

In practise for problems that came up on a regular basis we tended to use patient leaflets to avoid having to repeat ourselves this seemed a sensible use of resources. What follows is thus in effect me information leaflet.

Weight loss and fitness is always a long term commitment and never a quick fix. If you really want to reduce your weight a bit, this is a complex regime, that should help, I would get a pencil to write it down, in case you forget any of the intricate details.

Currently only using the criteria 'lose weight' there are 9,151 questions and answers on Answers already. Mis-spell it as 'loose weight' and you get another 2,554! 'Weight loss' will add another 1,839. 'Too fat ' 15,167 and 'overweight' 2,630 and 'over weight' 25,588!!!!!.

'Diet Pills' gives 593, Hoodia 194, 'pink patch' 116, 'Xenical' 89 'Reductil' 75, 'Slim fast' 213 (and Slimfast 69 ), lipotrim 44 and 'orlistat' 39 . Do you spot a pattern here? OMG that is over 38,000 questions with the same basic theme, wanting to lose weight!

Here comes the only answer, no tricks, no pills, no short cuts, If you really want to lose weight, loose weight, not be too fat or overweight, follow these instructions carefully:-

1) Eat less
2) Take regular vigorous exercise

Repeat 1+2 forever  (+ info)


i just need something that would help me loose weight...i just want to loose more weight just because of some people...i feel like no one really likes me because im a lil over weight and no one really likes me...i have told people i liked them and that was there reason..."i was there type" so does anyone know of any good pills or anything i can do to loose weight.
