Simple. Just exercise more and eat less (and healthier). Try to only eat when you’re hungry and eat smaller portions (like instead of eating a whole bag of chips, eat a small bowl and savor it). Don’t eat just because you’re bored and don’t eat in front of the computer or TV. Make healthier meals with lots vegetables and full grains. Drink skim milk at dinner but drink water the rest of the day. You can still enjoy a few cookies or a bowl of ice cream, just don’t overdo it.

For exercise, make it a goal to do something physical every day. You could take the dog for a walk, go biking, go for a jog, swim a few laps, do some hard yard work, go for a hike, do some sit ups and pushups, try yoga, or watch a workout video! Don’t make up complicated routines or anything; you’re less likely to keep up. It’s okay if you miss a day or two; just make sure you start back up again the next day.

Also, don’t forget to take a multivitamin and get enough sleep! Good luck, you can do it! 🙂

How can you lose Belly Fat fast and Not get the abs stuff?

I really need to know how to lose this belly fat without getting all the “6 pack abs” I just want to lose the Belly Fat!

Actually doing crunches/sit-ups has very little impact on ‘belly fat’. To burn fat you pretty much have one choice…eat healthy and do lots of cardio. The article below addresses the subject

How to lose belly fat fast in 1 month?

I wanted to know how to slim down, I’m not fat, but I’ve got a bit of belly fat, and some side fat, which is weird, and I wanted to not only get rid of the side fat but also have a flat stomach. I wanted to lose that in within a month for the summer holidays! So I wanted to have a great body (I only need a flatter stomach and have a more defined curve by getting rid of the side fat). Help?

Author answers:

Start eating healthily and make sure that you eat some fat burning foods

start working out, especially focusing on workouts that use your biggest body muscles

crunches and sit ups will not help you, they will just waste your time

Keep your metabolism high

James asks…

Whats with metabolism ?

admin answers:

One very important thing is to keep your metabolism high, meaning eating all day. Sounds wierd but eating all day can make you lose fat.

The trick is to eat the right foods at the right time. As soon as you wake up in the morning you need protein and carbohydrates(fuel and building blocks) these, when consumed will bring your body out of catabolic state.

Fasting overnight for several hours while sleeping depletes your body’s glycogen reserves(your last meal) and your body will start to slow down your metabolism and actually start to break down your own muscle(catabolic) and use it as fuel. Your muscles are a liability to your body in a catabolic state.

Meaning your muscles require large amounts of energy, even at rest, your body will try to conserve energy by reducing muscle mass, thus reducing the calories needed to fuel your body. Eating protein rich food along with a good source of carbohydrates refuels your body, kickstarts your metabolism and stops the catabolic process(muscle breakdown).

Its best to exercise about 1 or 2 hours after eating, this gives time for your body to digest the food and fuel up.

Now, during your workout you deplete your glycogen reserves again, thus restarting the catabolic process. Wait until after your workout, immediately after your workout to drink that protein shake, along with some fast digesting carbs.

Some people use dextrose or maltodextrin or both. I use real food like instant rice for carbs and egg whites for protein as these are digested quite quickly, not as quickly as whey and dextrose/maltodextrin but I like real food, lay off the fat here because it slows down digestion which is not what you want at this time.This again stops the catabolic process and also starts chemical reactions that stimulate your body to repair and build more muscle.

Muscle burns calories, alot of calories, your body doesnt really want more muscle because you will need to eat more food to keep them, more protein.

Now, you need to eat again about 1.5 hours later because that protein shake is digested so fast that it only lasts about 1 hour, you need real food now, again more protein and more carbs to stimulate muscle growth, slower digesting protein and carbs are preferred now to fuel and repair and build your body over a longer period.

Chicken and brown rice works great, dont forget veggies for vitamins throughout the day. Before you go to sleep drink milk or eat cheese, cottage cheese is best, because they contain a very slow digesting protein called casein, this will protect your muscles most of the night, but remember to eat protein and carbs again when you wake up to stop that catabolic process again.

Never workout unless you have eaten, or else your body will breakdown your muscles much sooner than if you did eat. Staying hydrated is very important, digesting food and building muscle requires water. 5 or 6 meals a day every 3 hours will keep your metabolism up, thus burning more calories throughout the day, even at rest.

Rest is important between workouts. I was working out for almost 2 months with no results, I was exercising before I ate and I didnt know about anything about preworkout or post workout nutrition. Ive been eating properly pre and post worrkout for only 2 workouts and there is noticeable gain in muscle mass already.

Navigate into Supersite and look in the left menu for “nutrition” click this and look for pre workout and post workout nutrition. I am soooo happy I found this site or my workouts will have been in vain.

What are the best fat burning supplements?

It is really summertime! The season when I need to look ripped! At this moment that is far of the case. I’m too much overweight and I’m looking for away to achieve my goal for this summer fast and save. Can Anyone tell me what the best fat burning supplements are?

admin answers:

All fat burning supplements are bad for you, most contain stimulants, which are not good for your heart and whole body. Man-up and train harder on the treadmill pussy.

David asks…

What are some natural and safe fat burning supplements?

I’ve been trying to lose weight and I’m not having much success. I seem to build muscle much easier than I burn fat. I want to add a fat burning supplement to my diet/exercise routine to see if that helps me. I want something safe and natural. Suggestions please?

admin answers:

Pectin which is in apples and carrots . If you eat pectin prior to meals it speeds up your metabolism. Also you should graze , and not eat 4hr before bed.

Maria asks…

How do fat-burning supplements work? What are good supplements?

What is a good fatburning supplement for someone who eats 3 meals a day, and works out/exercises 5-6 days a week?

admin answers:

They have different actions on the body. They can block fat. They can speed up metabolism. They can increase elimination (make you go to the bathroom more). No matter which one(s) you try, try to keep eating healthy. And let your health care provider know you’re trying to lose weight. Avoid caffeine-containing supplements. Caffeine depletes calcium from a woman’s bones, & acidifies the body, promoting a less healthy state. Check out your local health food store & ask for the most popular selling ones.

Hypothyroidism diet ?

Sandy asks…

Hypothyroidism diet ?

I have hypothyroidism, I am 21 and was diagnosed when I was 19. I am currently taking .5mg of thyroxin each morning to help stabilize my metabolism however I am still gaining weight. I weighed 70kg when I was first diagnosed, however, now I weigh 93. I find it hard to exercise regularly however I try walking and I do yoga at home. I am a Vegan and I eat plenty of fresh fruit, veg and legumes and drink upwards of 3 liters of water per day. I do eat the occasional packet of chips or have a vegan chocolate bar but otherwise my diet is fairly healthy. Why am I still gaining weight?
I do not for one second believe you are a doctor, no doctor would prescribe weight loss medication to a patient with a bad thyroid gland.

admin answers:

Hi, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism when I was 20. I am 29 now and I currently take 100mg of thyroxine. My advice to you would be to go back to your doctors so that they can see if your dosage needs to be increased. Try swimming or gentle walks for exercise. You will get through this. Xxx

Laura asks…

where can i find a good diet for hypothyroidism?

i would like any help i can get without having to take diet pills.. i was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 4 years ago. since then i have put on almost 40lbs. i would like some input on what foods to eat that would help speed up my metabolism. also a good workout regimen would help too. thanks in advance.

admin answers:

According to Dr. Todd Nippoldt of the Mayo Clinic, “Generally, there’s no hypothyroidism diet. Although claims about hypothyroidism diets abound, there’s no evidence that eating or avoiding certain foods will improve thyroid function.”

Question asked of Dr. Nippoldt: “Can iodine supplements help regulate thyroid function in a person with hypothyroidism?”

Dr. Nippoldt: “No. Some alternative medicine practitioners recommend iodine tablets or kelp supplements — which are high in iodine — for people with hypothyroidism. It is true that severe iodine deficiency can cause hypothyroidism. But iodine deficiency is extremely rare in the United States and other developed countries since the addition of iodine to salt (iodized salt) and other foods. If iodine deficiency is not the cause of hypothyroidism, then iodine supplements provide no benefit.

“Hypothyroidism is safely and effectively treated with the synthetic thyroid hormone levothyroxine.”

Walking a couple of miles twice a day would help keep your metabolism revved up naturally. If your health is good enough, try it. My prayers are with you. The main thing is not to forget to take the synthetic thyroid hormone your doctor prescribes for you.

Nancy asks…

What is a good diet for someone with hypothyroidism?

I have hypothyroidism and trying to lose weight any suggestions for a diet for people with hypothyroidism?

admin answers:

Losing weight with hypothyroidism is difficult but can be done. You must do 60-90 minutes of cardio daily.

You must eat three regular meals and 2 healthy snacks. Reduce the refined carbs in your diet, like pototos, white bread, rice and replace them with lots of colourful veggies, eat lots of chicken and fish, and make sure you eat some protein with all of your meals and snacks.

I assume you are on medication, and once the medication starts doing its job it will be easier for you to lose weight.

Good luck.
