So I'm 5'4 and weigh 167 pounds. I have gained a lot in the last one year. My goal is to loose up to 30 lbs. I have a trainer 3 days a week. I am vegetarian where I do not eat ANY meat or seafood. How to loose weight faster. I am toning cause of my workout. I intake 2 ProteinZ sysnthesis shakes a day. But my weight is not going down. I was size 6 before. Now I'm size 10. I am 39 years old with hypo thyroid issues. It's hard to keep weight off. Any suggestions.

Hi Adrian,

I love your videos!! Thanks for taking the time to put them together!

Are baked potatoes helpful when trying to maintain a slim figure?

I know loading them with fattening toppings is not healthy...

Thanks again!

January 02, 2017

Adrian Bryant

see this because all that matter is HOW MUCH and not WHAT you eat when it comes to if you gain or lose weight.

But the foods on this page will help you lose weight faster due to the fact they make you eat less due to less hunger and cravings

January 03, 2017


I have been reviewing your workouts and you eating plans. the only problem I have is I'm a picky eater, I don't really eat a lot of these foods, ive always told myself that theres no point in only exercising cus I don't like certain veggies or foods, what can I do as I am a picky eater? ive quit losing weight 3 times now and I'm serious now I need to lose weight my body is telling me I gotta start and not stop till I finish, what can I do ?

Hi Adrian,
Great site and great info! I can't drink my coffee without powder sugar and Splenda. Will Splenda hinder my efforts? I've tried other sweeteners like agave trivia stevia and they all taste disgusting.

August 28, 2016

Adrian Bryant

I think splenda is a no-no b/c it acutally increases cravings

Hi I'm a massive yo-yo dieter my weight is so up & down. This time last year I was 11st 11 today I'm 13st 3

Was following slimming world but I have a holiday booked yesterday in 19 days & need to lose as much as I can. Am going to do the emergency diet for these next 19 days

Am confused though as to eating 2 x fruit/veg etc before if it's cucumber how much would you eat same if it's grapes or melon how much before your meal?

I'm going to struggle with water but il do my best but what about no added sugar juice? I drink 3litres of diet coke a day & so want to get off it

Going to do the 30 day shred DVD too. How often should I fast how many times a week??


June 20, 2016

Adrian Bryant

you'll know once you eat enoguh fruit/veggie when it feels like you are almost full.

Avoid juice drinks and diet drinks b/c they actually make you want to eat more

you can fast as many times as you like

Hi Adrian,

I recently had a ligament tear and fracture in my ankle and I put on a lot of weight. I now weight 170 pounds but want to get back to my original weight of 115 in the next couple of months. If you could help me come with a diet plan and exercise plan to loose all this weight in the next 5 months, that would be great! Thank You!

Hi Adrian

So glad I found your page I have been lost in the weight loss minefield, I have 10lb to lose and have tried upping and lowering my calories I am currently on 1500 and doing low impact aerobics 5-6 times a week and getting my 10000 steps a day. Your calculator says to have between 1300 and 1800 calories I am 47 and 5ft 4 and weight 143lbs. Can you advise the best calorie goal I should be aiming for to get the lbs dropping, I am going to try the intermittent fasting and up my protein. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks x

April 18, 2016

Adrian Bryant

it will take some trial and error on your part to find the perfect amount of calories you need but 1300-1800 is a good start

April 18, 2016

Hi Adrian
Im 23 years old and I weigh 180 pounds. I'd like to lose about 50 pounds in 5 months. What should I do to achieve this? I have just signed up for the gym and will go at least 3 times a week.

Hi! I'm 32 years old, 5'1" and I last weigh 150lbs. The largest I have ever been. In the past, I was 135 and got as low as 117 in 13 months, of running outside and leg and abs exercise. I'm a vegetarian, no meat or fish of any kind ever. My work schedule is 7 days straight putting in 13-15 hrs a day daily and on my feet all day. I work in the hospital. Then I usually get the next 7 days off. I need a plan that I can do with my schedule, and a diet that works with me. Please advise a workout for me that I can do initially that is not too hard on my knees. My weight is too much and actually hurts my knees when I try to do burpees and etc. What would you recommend?
