Okay... my recomendation is to cut out Soda completely... doing this is REALLY HARD but it seriously WORKS!! just drink lots of water and a glass of skim milk a day! i lost 5lbs. the first week and 2lbs. every week after! without exercise! yay! :P
Someone once told me to think sugar as a 'white poison'. Not that it is of course, but if you can stay away from cake, chocolate, pop, candy etc. and obtain your sugar cravings and needs through fruit, honey, and some vegetables you'll find yourself much better off.
Wanna lose weight? Not into excercise? Take Apple Cider Vinegar pills, In the first month of taking it I lost 20 pounds! Just take one a day or one with each meal or whatever your want. Not only do you lose weight but it keeps a healthy immune system. Don't take more than 6 a day though. Follow the directions on the bottle to easy weightloss
I find that if you eat lots of salad with homeade dressings (vinegar & oil) and exersise you lose weight, obviously. The dressing has no unwanted fat or additives in it. Just use it sparingly though. A little goes a long way. For the exersising bit, lay on your back, and put your feet in the air. Then, made circles with your legs like you're riding a bike. It gets your legs toned, and your tummy smaller. All the stars do it, you can too! (A salad I recommend is, iceburg lettace, strawberries, apples and a dressing of vegetable oil, balsamic vinegar and sugar. Yum!!) :)
Get half the portion of food you usally. Walk a half a mile to a mile 3 to 4 times a week.
The average human body burns 1800 calories a day. If a person consumes less than 1800 calories a day, they are almost more than gauranteed to lose weight. Excercise can add to your calorie count by using an aproximate calories burned with calculators on the internet. Remember everyone will burn differently, as well as weight loss is NEVER and I mean NEVER a quick fix. If an add claims to work within a week, by losing more than 5 pounds. It is unhealthy. Please be patient and take your time. Read for calories and eat negative calorie foods like lettuce, celery, and cabbage. To aide this venture, drink lots of water, like 8 glasses a day. (I know its annoying, but it does help.) Remember weight loss takes time.
I stopped eating after 5 pm, gave up sodas, and walked 3 to 4 miles 3 times a week I lost 58 lbs in 7 weeks and still have it off 5 years later even after another pregnancy.
IF YOU HAVE THE MONEY, I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THE LA WEIGHTLOSS PROGRAM. I LOST LBS AND ITS SIMPLY EATING THE FOODS YOU NEED DAILY MOST IMPORTANTLY MAKE SURE YOU DRINK YOUR EIGHT GLASSES OF WATER, EAT 3 VEGGIES, 3 FRUITS, 2 PROTIENS, 2 STARCHES, AND 1 FAT PER DAY. ALL IN MODERATION TRUST ME IT WORKS I LOVE TO EAT AND I LOVE TO EAT GOOD FOOD IF YOURE THE SAME THIS IS SOMETHING YOU SHOULD LOOK INTO. EAT FOODS IN SMALL PORTIONS
Add a fruit or a vegetable to every meal. Dont skip breakfast, ever. Breakfast actually reduces your total calorie intake, and jump starts your metabolism in the morning, very helpful for weight loss.
For snacks, focus on fruits and veggies or carbs like muffins. Muffins are yummy, too! Dont work so hard at skimping on food, but focus on what youre eating, instead. This can take a few weeks to ease into, but if you set up a schedule of 4 or 5 weeks, and add a new habit each week, it will be very easy.
Walk for at least 15 minutes every day, or a half hour every other day.
Following the walk, lay down on the floor and do flutter kicks. Lie on your back and put your hands by your hips. Then, pretend that there is water that comes just to your chest, and you have to keep your head above it, and splash your feet in the water. This especially helps to tighten/ strengthen the lower abs, and the lower back, and helps you fit into your clothes even faster! Also, if your arms are a problem, try doing simple pushups, starting at the dining room table, or wall, to begin. Just put your hands about 6' below your neck on the wall to begin, and do 5 sets of 10 the first week. You can do reverse push ups too, by facing away from the wall and placing your hands by your hips, and pushing off the wall in sets. Gradually, move to a table, then a chair, then the floor. Once you can do push ups on the floor, you can graduate your legs, on books, then on a chair.. this can really tone up your arms, but its a gradual process! Stick with it!
Make all your food raw. Just go 100% raw foods for 30 days straight. No counting carbs, calories, fat, protein, etc. I did this and dropped 12 of my last 17 lbs that I had struggled with for over a year. I dropped those 12 lbs in a month without even trying. The only thing I didn't make raw were my drinks. I still drank coffee, green tea and herbal tea and had a double shot latte one time a week, and these were still the results I got. Keeping the non-raw drinks in might slow down the detoxification and cleansing process, but if you're not ready for such a drastic change, it's good to keep the drinks in then. I still eat around 80% raw foods and have been maintaing my weight loss (I went on to lose the other 5 the following month) just nicely!
