There are sport activities that can help you lose weight.
Cycling can help you lose 1000 calories per hour depending on the speed and the terrain. It takes 3500 calories to lose 1 pound of our weight. So, if you make this a daily routine then you'll be able to lose 2 pounds in just a week.
Some alternative also includes Running, Swimming, Lawn Tennis and Dancing. Less costly, fun and very effective. But, keep in mind that without commitment and self discipline this won't be possible. Good luck!
First, for all of the "quick and easy" weight loss diet pill suggestions, remember, if something sounds too good to be true... it probably is, particularly if you have to pay for it.
On Yahoo!Answers I find certain questions being asked repeatedly which is simply a reflection of new people participating. A couple of common questions amount to "How do I lose weight," or more specifically, "How do I lose abdominal fat?" I have gotten very positive responses from my answers when I paused to reply (and now beginning to get "It works!" emails that are very gratifying. I like helping people)... so have recently decided to put a good solid answer on my Yahoo!360 Blog (September 10) that I can point people to. These are my thoughts as a physician and athlete.
Don't target losing more than about 2 lbs per week. If you try to lose faster, your body will go into "starvation mode" and get very stingy about burning calories while at the same time very efficient about storing any calories that you do provide. And it will make you feel awful.
There is no site specific way of losing fat... the old myth about working your abs to burn belly fat isn't true. To get rid of love handles, you need to lose overall fat. That happens with exercise and watching your diet. More on that below.
The most effective way to lose fat is aerobic exercise in the "moderate" fat-burning range, ideally first thing in the morning before you eat. When you wake your body is ready to burn fat and your levels of growth hormone are highest at that time. Later in the day it can take up to 30 minutes just to put your body into a fat-burning mode.
Another overlooked way to burn fat is by lifting weights. Skeletal muscle has very high caloric needs... almost twice that of adipose (fat) tissue. Put on a little muscle and you will burn calories all day even at rest. Be aware that skeletal muscle weighs more, so with this approach you may see your weight increasing while your body fat is melting away. Not realizing this often stresses folks who think they should be losing weight as a measure of fitness. Forget the scale, look in the mirror and you will be happy.
To lose a pound of fat, you need to eliminate about 3500 calories. You can do this by burning more with exercise or by modifying your diet to reduce intake. If you do a Google search on say, "swimming calories" you will quickly find a website with tables of calories burned for a given exercise. You can use such lists to estimate how many calories you are burning up with your routine.
For diet, keep a diary for a couple of weeks counting calories, grams of protein, and grams of fat intake. It is easy with online sources of nutritional information (type the name of the food and calories into the Google search engine) and packaging labels. That will let you quickly figure out where the fat is coming from in your diet.
Fat gives you 9 calories per gram. So take the number of grams of fat, multiply by 9, then calculate what percentage the fat calories are of your total daily calories. Restricting the calories from fat to about 20% of your total intake is ideal for a maintenance diet... that isn't overly restrictive. Of note, you need some fat in your diet. For instance, the body uses fat to produce hormones. Once you have a picture of how to modify your diet, you can drop the diary and just go back to it occasionally if you are wanting to tweek things further.
There is a subset of questions that goes further and asks about "How to get a six-pack?" The answer is the same. Six-packs are 20% abdominal exercise and 80% diet. There is one caveat... abdominal muscles will form in the position that you work them, so be certain to pull them tightly toward your spine while doing crunches, etc. Also, during most lifting, the "core is active" which means that you should be stabilizing with contracted abs then too. Fail to do this and the abs will form, but bulging outward and the result is not attractive.
If you are trying to build muscle as a way to lose fat, then you may need to increase total calories and specifically your protein intake. I target about 0.8 g of protein per pound of body weight each day when actively building. That is far more protein than most people need in their diets.
tried it when it was a prescription. The side effect they call anal leakage should be called crapping orange oil every time you fart. Oh not just skid marks, they could package this stuff as mechanics penetrating oil. Through your underwear, pants, and into the furniture in less time than it takes to jump up. Ok, this only happens if you eat something fat like pepperoni or a hot dog. Why not just stop eating them without the drugs? Do you really need to spend $60 for a training aid? Hell, send me the $60 and call me every time you are about to eat something. You could ware a maxi pad on your ***, just make sure to take a couple of changes of cloths to work and always sit on a towel. I would guess that less than one in a hundred ever buy a second bottle.
It depends on where you buy it from. Certain countries you can just get it over the counter and then others you need a prescription. I've tried only the free sample pack for 2 weeks so I didn't have to buy it at a store.
If you're thinking of trying it out, there may be some free samples still available http://freesamplesfromheaven.com but it is only for 2 weeks though.
Good luck and be safe.
rite aid, wal greens... or do they have rite aid in London? hmmm. we'll, just get it from a pharmaceutical store. ask around
You heard wrong. B12 doesn't help weight loss. It used to be thought of as an energy or mood booster, but it has been long disproven.
Absolutely, although I'm not buying the "no time for a workout" thing... If you watch TV or cruise the internet, then you have time to work out.
There is no magic weight-loss pill, supplement, fad diet, or juice. The ONLY way to lose weight is to consume less calories than you burn. Brad Pitt didn’t get buff for Fight Club by drinking green tea and you won’t either.
The only way to lose weight is to consume less calories than you burn.
To lose weight, experts agree you need to exercise for at least 30 minutes at 60%-70% of your Max Heart Rate (MHR). A simple way to calculate MHR is 220 minus your age. So if you’re 45 years old, for example, your MHR would be 220-45=175. 60% of 175 is 105, and 70% of 175 is 122.5. So you should exercise daily for 30 minutes at a heart rate between 105 and 123.
You don’t need additional equipment—infomercial products like the Ab Lounger, Sauna Belt, etc. are all worthless gimmicks so don’t waste your money.
Eat breakfast, and eat five small meals per day instead of three big meals. If you don't wake up ravenous, then you ate too much the day before. Stop eating at least two hours before you go to bed. Cut back on the foods you eat with high fat and high sugar content. Eat only single servings (read the label) with less than 3 grams trans fat and 3 grams sugars. Become familiar with websites like http://chubbyloser.com that contain good information on what to eat, including supplements.
Don't consume alcohol—alcohol is nothing more than empty calories with no nutritional value. Some people will argue that alcohol has some health benefits when consumed in moderation—I’m not debating that—but we’re talking about weight loss here. Lay off the booze if you want to lose the belly.
Drink lots of water, then drink more. Not tea, not Gatorade, not milk. Water. If your urine isn’t almost clear, you need to drink more water.
I'm not surprised they don't work. I went to their site, no indication of how many milligrams of hoodia are in their pills. No certifications to verify their hoodia is real. Looks like another product trying to cash in on the popularity of Hoodia. You will have the best chance of hoodia suppressing your appetite if you get a strong pure hoodia that is certified to be genuine. Check out Totalink's unbiased Hoodia comparison at http://hoodiagordonii.totalink.com/hoodi... in the "Confidence" column it will indicate if the brand is "Certified". These Hoodia brands have the credentials to back up their product. Also in that column it will indicate if the brand is "Returnable". These Hoodia brands allow you to return opened bottles and get your money back. I think this indicates that a company has confidence in their product that it works.
I have written a lot of articles on Hoodia. Just search Yahoo or Google under my name “Andrew Aitaken” to find them.
Remember, you should always consult your physician before taking any diet pill or weight loss supplement.
None of them work. Period. Over and out. The only over the counter pill approved by the FDA is Alli. All the rest have to be sold as "dietary supplements" since they cannot prove their claims in nationally accepted clinical trials. They all do in house "clinical studies" that prove their claims and back them up with "testimonials". Most of whom are paid to advertise the product.
Let's pretend all these thermogenic diet pills really do what they say.
The thermic effect of eating, digesting, and other food energy related functions only account for 10% of your total BMR (basal metabolic rate). So if you are fairly active a diet of 2000 calories per day is pretty reasonable for a maintenance diet. That means 200 calories go to thermic burn. Now let's say these wonderful diet pills increase your thermic burn by 25%. That is a big change in any body function.
So we have increased our caloric burn by??.... 50 calories per day! Or less than 1/2 pound per month. For about $80 a month.
That is why these bogus and often dangerous pills cannot get FDA approval. They simply cannot prove their outrageous claims with acceptable clinical evidence.
A healthy diet of whole unprocessed foods will give you much greater results.
Read these supplements and you will see each and every one of them says somewhere on the label it is a "dietary supplement'. Loopholes in the current laws allow peddlers to promote their products without accepted medical evidence to prove their outrageous claims.
All this stuff is putting your liver and kidneys through a lot of unnecessary and potentially dangerous activity.
