...unfortunately, that thread is about as riddled with bad advice and unsound medicine as a snake oil sales pitch. If you want to lose weight and do it safely, contact your doctor.

cutting carbs is a good way to cut weight off of your mid section but if you want to get your whole body into great shape your going to need to add some form of weight training as well. this dosen't mean that you need to be benching 200lbs but just some light free weights or use the machines at the gym. swiming is a great way to get in shape but you need to do short sprint swims to raise your heart rate, mixed with some long distance swims to build up endurance. the same thing goes for running as well. what i like to do at the track is jog the first lap sprint the next two and jog the last lap of the mile. when you run multiple miles it works out to 2 jog 2 sprint,2 jog etc plus you end on a jog for a cool down lap. i realy didn't intend to write that much but i hope it helps. if you have any questions feel free to pm me

I hear that chewing on sticks really hard helps you lose weight. I read that on the internet so it's well-researched and healthy and effective.

Mango speaks the truth.

You don't necessarily have to cut out sugar. Eat smaller portions of what you usually eat, and 6 meals a day. Try calculating how many calories you consume a day for a week or so, and slowly decrese your intake by 100-250 calories a week. While doing all this, keep doing cardio. Running, swimming, jump roping, anything really. Of course the number one thing is DEDICATION!. Don't quit, just becuse you haven't lost much weight within 2 weeks.

I would just eat healthy. :/

For most heights, 135 is fine - and I don't really see much of a difference in 10 pounds.

Weight is a NUMBER. If you're already running and swimming - part of that 135 might be MUSCLE MASS.

Well, I didn't mean to take every single post to heart. Like with everything else on the net, a few gems can be found amongst the crap. ;)

Eat slower, exercise (but not until you drop. I like belly-dancing, personally), Eat smaller portions, Only eat when you're hungry and stop when you're full.
DON'T GIVE UP! You probably won't see results for awhile, but that's normal. It isn't all just going to magically all off.
I followed all of these and I'm down a pants size! Good Luck ^_^

I have some advice, stop drinking any sort of pop or soda. Only drink water. That can do wonders.

#12 SodiRyfe on 9 years ago

cilicia is right with the pop drinks , all that extra sugar you get from that is enough to supply near 2/3 of you daily amount .

also it'l take one month to see some improvement aswell long as you keep on your weekly rota of workout.

thing is a workout isn't something that should be hours worth , infact 20-40 minutes , 4-5 days a week can give results for someone that hasn't done much training.

it's mostly finding out what you can cope with in training .

doing light weights and set a rep you can do , after afew days, try to increase it by 5 or untill you feel comfrotable to do more .

mostly thou is it like all round fat or fat in parts of your body like the waist and arms?

Acai Berry juices do wonders! It's an antioxidant, so it helps get all of the icky toxins out of your body so you can function better.

Also, taking up dance really helped me at least. Honestly, I didn't lose weight(but that's probably because it was a partnered dance and I didn't have a partner to practice with outside of class), but my posture started getting better and I gained a lot of confidence. And I think that weight doesn't matter as much when you have confidence.

But yeah, you're supposed to eat about 6 small meals a day to boost your metabolism and workout about 60 minutes with walking, swimming, jump roping, ect.

#14 Cheshare on 9 years ago

some one needs to gather all the good tips and make a post out of them some where xD I'll tell ya one thing that I know : )

Eat a bigger breakfast and a lighter dinner. It jumpstarts your matabolisum a bit by making it go "Oh start of the day and so much food already? Better get it into gear!" handy little trick.

I think this is the best advice.
