  • Honestly to keep it off, you need to just watch your calorie intake...check your BMR. It will tell you how many calories you need just to keep your body running and will tell you how many to take in each day to lose weight. Then you need to get moving to burn more calories.

    Crash diets do not work.

  • You can't lose it fast I'm afraid. Just start moving and watch your calorie intake. 3500 calories equals a pound of fat. Find a BMR calculator online and it will tell you how much your body burns just to survive. For instance if it says you burn 2000 calories per day and you were to eat just 1500 calories per day, that would be a deficit of 500 calories. 500 calories times 7 days in a week equals 3500 calories, which means you would burn 1 pound of fat per week. Of course, this is just an example, you can safely lose 2-3 pounds per week, just do the math. Good luck!

  • Once you put your mind to it ~ you will be able to do anything!
    Maybe start by cutting your portions back and getting healthier foods in. And some moderate cardio ~ walking 20- 30 minutes 3 - 5 days a week. Also, do you drink a lot of soda or sugary beverages? I know all the sugar is a huge cullpret of weight. I have been drinking Yoli ~ they are sugar free, all natural and packed with vitamins and minerals ~ and very tasty!! They also have an ingredient that helps to reduce acidity in your body which helps greatly with many things. PM me or check out my profile if you want more information.
    Good luck!!
