    Best answer: Skip the McDonalds and Pasta and go to 99 cent stores and buy fruits and vegetables and save your money for healthy stuff. Its all a mind thing, when it comes to diets. You have to have a planned menu everyday of what you going to eat for breakfast,lunch,dinner,snacks and stick to it. Diets dont work, its a lifestyle change. Plan also to work out 4x a week rather its walking for 30 mins. Get a crockpot and make veggie soups if you dont like cooking crockpots are a life saver for me. If you really want to get the most out of weight loss you should do a detox first.

    3 Day Detox:
    Consume fruits and veggies or soups only, lots of water atleast consume half your body weight (no noodles,bread,meat,dairy)
    Plan to be at home all day. After 3 day detox Do a Enema all day until everything comes out clear, atleast 3x a day,if you can bear it. Research Enema if you dont know what it is. No worries if you cant go through with the Enema that many times a day, try again the next day. Drink electrolytes and probotics after Enemas.
    Once everything comes out clear, plan to eat liquid based foods soups,smoothies etc. for 24 hours
    Then start eating better, this is where ur lifestyle for a better weight begins. If you like bread,try spelt,rye,or kumut bread and grains. If you like sweets try figs,agave syrup,date sugar, if you like potatoes try butternut squash fries (youtube) a video on recipe. There is tons of healthy recipes out there you have to take the time and research if you want to be healthy and be at your right weight. Faith is dead without works.
    May God bless you in your weight lost Journey

  • What is the fastest way to lose weight with little money?

    Best answer: The sad truth is that there really is no fast and safe way to "quickly" lose weight. (By "quickly" I mean losing 20, 30, 40 lbs. in a week, or even a month). On some crash diets you CAN lose some water-weight, but you might also not be getting key nutrients. If your body goes into... show more
    Best answer: The sad truth is that there really is no fast and safe way to "quickly" lose weight. (By "quickly" I mean losing 20, 30, 40 lbs. in a week, or even a month). On some crash diets you CAN lose some water-weight, but you might also not be getting key nutrients. If your body goes into starvation-mode, you'll also be slowing down your metabolism. When you DO start eating again, the pounds will come right back on again...and sometimes even more.

    The only safe and proven way to lose weight is to change your lifestyle and eating habits, and this is unfortunately a hard, rather slow process on many different levels. The best diets from a scientific standpoint seem to be low-carb (NOT completely no-carb) in which you avoid white pasta, rice, bread products, potatoes, (simple carbs) and sugar and instead try to eat mostly vegetables, fruit (not fruit juice), and some whole-grain products, dairy and lean meat. Some people feel full with more fruits and vegetables; others need a little more meat or dairy to keep blood sugar levels stable. At the same time (and I know a lot of people might disagree with this.) I think you really DO need to control your portion sizes of meat and dairy... no 20 oz. steaks. Most people aren't going to get fat eating green beans and spinach salads; you'd get full too quickly. Meats, dairy, and fats/oils (in lots of salad dressings and fried foods) have LOTS of calories in a very compact form, though. That is why we have fast food "meals" that contain more calories than some people need to eat in an entire day.

    On the plus side, with some smart shopping and reusing left-overs, eating like this can be relatively affordable....or more affordable than $7 or more for a single fast-food meal. You can have "Grandma" style meals with 2 vegetables (there are about 3.5 1/2 cup servings per can) , a modest (4-6 oz) serving of baked/boiled/grilled/broiled meat, a cup of milk to drink, and maybe a whole grain roll and some fruit for dessert; OR you can be a little more creative: a whole grain pita with lean ham or turkey and filled with raw veggies. It's not easy to change fast-food (it tastes so good!) or huge-portion eating habits, but with 30 minutes of walking a day, you can loose weight in a healthy way.

  • Is eating salmon every day healthy?

    I eat salmon for dinner every day with broccoli and brown rice. I've heard salmon contains mercury; will the mercury affect my health, or are there insignificant amounts in it?

    Best answer: Time to invest in staying healthy. Lose the boyfriend. He is not good for you, if he cannot understand what its like to go through anorexia and how difficult it was to recover, he is not worth your time or effort. Please respect yourself, you've worked hard to get healthy, now you deserve to have someone who will love you as you are. Any jerk who would bully a woman to lose weight is not the type of person that you need in your life at all. He clearly doesn't care or respect the journey you've taken and how far you've come. Clean house sweetie, dump him now! There are so many nice guys out there that like curvy girls, don't settle on the one bugger who doesn't. take care.

Then I asked a doctor, and she claimed they don't measure body fat because if they do it wrong, I may sue them? WTF. Am I to understand that there is NO way I can find out my body fat? Don't tell me to look at BMI, because that system is crap.

    Keep the sweets (and any processed food) to a minimum. Eat healthy and be active, and you should see the fat loss you desire.

    Best answer: This is long--and it works. Copy and revisit as needed, okay? Because you can do this.

    Weight loss is about changing the foods you eat, the quantities of food you eat, and how active you are. You don't need to starve yourself or work out like crazy to lose weight or to keep it off. You have to do something many people consider even harder:

    You have to make permanent changes, for your whole life, to lose weight and keep it off.

    First step: Don't eat anything fried--that's french fries, fried chicken, potato chips, mozzarella sticks, etc. Limit fats like oil, butter, margarine, peanut butter, and mayonnaise, and measure them so you never overindulge. Stop drinking soft drinks and juices except sugar-free, and those sparingly. (One a day, tops.) No more candy or sweet baked goods, no ice cream. What, never?

    You can still have these things, but only as a special-occasion treat, and in controlled portions. Yes, have cake on your birthday--but only the tiniest sliver on anybody else's birthday. If you're smart, you'll ban very few foods, only the ones which are "trigger" foods, where if you have a little you're going to have a lot. Even those are allowed if you purchase only one portion--the tiny bag of potato chips that go in kids' lunches, for example.

    Drink lots of water. If your pee has almost no color, that's enough.

    Get 30 minutes of mild (or more vigorous) exercise six days a week--a walk is fine, or active housework or yard work. If you're willing and able, more active exercise burns more calories, even though the secret to losing weight is less about exercise and more about what you eat. Lots of people who are overweight cannot exercise vigorously, but they can walk mile after mile, shovel snow, scrub down the bathroom, and vacuum. Note that your difficulty exercising sounds like you're just unused to it. If you work at it, your ability to do physically demanding things will improve. You don't start with a 10K run; you start with a half-mile walk-run-walk.

    What to eat? Healthy foods, healthy portions. Eat low-fat dairy products, fat free if possible. (Skip fat free cheese; it's wretched.) Eat low-fat protein sources like lean burger, fish, and white-meat chicken or pork, one portion being the size of a deck of cards. Limit portion sizes on carbs (rice, bread, pasta, cereal) to the size of your fist, and whenever whole grain is an option, take it. (It keeps you full longer.) Eat at least nine servings of fruits and/or veggies every day. Any time you're itching to binge, go for fruit or veggies.

    Ask whoever's bringing the binge food into the house to scale it way, way back or stop altogether. See if those bad foods can be stored out of sight as well.

    Snack intelligently, planning something reasonable in a decent portion size before you're starving. Identify your "satisfied" foods, the ones that make you feel full for a pretty long time. (Simply filling your stomach doesn't do it, as you probably know.) For me, that's a measured amount of cereal, some berries or banana, and almond milk--holds me for hours.

    You don't need to count calories, but when you're getting started on changing your eating habits, it's a good idea. Aim for 1600-1800 per day at first. You won't be hungry, I promise. Don't drop below 1500 for the day, since you're in your teens. The weight loss will be slow because that's a fair amount of calories, but if you go lower, your body saves its fat for the starvation it thinks is coming and uses muscle to meet your demands. You don't want that, since muscle at rest burns calories.

    It won't be easy and it's going to take a long while, but people manage to do this. I know people at Weight Watchers (which basically has you doing what I just explained) who've lost 50 or 100 or 150 pounds and kept it off for years. Many of them still struggle and make the occasional mistake. If you backslide, get right back into eating wisely, not tomorrow or next week but starting right now.

    It's not a diet, it's changing what you eat to a healthy variety for the rest of your life.
