1. Raw Fruits & Vegetables
You'll not only maintain your weight much easier if you eat more RAW fruits & veggies but you'll also lose weight much faster on a weight loss plan eating more RAW fruits & veggies and here's another quick fact…
Your body burns 16% more calories after you eat a meal that's mostly fruits & vegetables than if you ate a meal without any fruits or vegetables plus…
Fruits & vegetables high in vitamin C like Oranges, lemons & pineapples liquefy (or burn off) body fat so the fat can be easily flushed out of your body and you need to eat RAW fruits & vegetables because…
Farmers feed pigs steamed or cooked veggies to fatten them up because they know raw veggies will slim them down.2. Oatmeal
Oatmeal is loaded with fiber that decreases your appetite by making you feel full so you can go for long periods of time without eating while keeping your energy levels high at the same time and…
If you eat oatmeal about 1-to-2 hours before doing your weight loss workout… Oatmeal will give you a longer lasting blast of energy that helps you workout longer & more intensely which helps you lose weight much faster and…
It's better to eat steel-cut oats, plain or natural oatmeal & not the flavored oatmeal packets that contain lots of sugar.
Researchers at Loughborough University found that
when athletes ate complex carbs (like oatmeal
) for breakfast & lunch… They burned much more fat off during the day than those who ate
simple carbs or bad weight loss foods
The researchers also found out that the athletes burned more fat while working out and were able to workout longer when eating complex carbs like oatmeal.
3. Dairy products
Dairy products or foods high in calcium like Low-fat yogurt, cheese, & milk breakdown fat cells faster and in a recent study…
People who ate low-fat dairy products 3-to-4 times a day lost 70% more fat than people on a low-dairy diet and scientist also believe that foods high in calcium suppress calcitriol, a hormone responsible for making fat cells bigger and dairy products also contain high quality proteins that help suppress appetite.4. Any kind of raw nuts
Eat any kind of nuts for fiber to ward off hunger and to also get a good dose of protein & healthy Omega-3s fats to help you burn fat faster & produce more testosterone but… Make sure you eat raw & organic nuts instead of roasted & salted to get the full weight loss benefits.5. Apples
Eat apples so the pectin found in apples can prevent your body from absorbing too much fat and… The pectin from apples causes your body to release fat and…
Pectin is also a strong appetite suppressant that keeps you satisfied for long periods of time causing you not to overeat so you won't gain weight and in a study done in Brazil…
People who had 1 whole apple before each meal lost 33% more weight than a group of people who didn't eat apples.
6. Brazil Nuts
Eat more fish like Salmon, Tuna, and Sardines to make your body more sensitive to a fat-burning hormone called Leptin (Leptin means "thin" in Greek).
Leptin suppresses your appetite and Leptin determines whether you store the calories you eat as fat or if you burn the calories you eat for energy.8. Spices
Add spices to your foods like chili peppers, jalapeno peppers, cayenne peppers or hot mustard to increase your fat burning metabolism by 8-to-20% for up to 3 hours after eating spices and…
Dr. Henry at Oxford University proved that hot peppers can increase your fat-burning metabolism by adding just 3 grams of chili peppers to meals and In a British Study… Spicy mustard made people burn an extra 45-to-75 calories over 3 hours and…
Garlic is a strong diuretic that can help you flush out excess water weight plus… Spices foods can reduce your appetite by increasing your body's norepinephrine and epinephrine levels and…
Gingerol (the active ingredient in ginger) increases growth hormone production which increases the amount of fat released from your fat stores to be burned as fuel.9. Organic Beef
According to The International Journal of Obesity… People who took CLA lost belly fat by reducing their waistlines by 1.2 inches without making any diet or lifestyle changes.10. Resistant starch
Resistant starch is just another kind of dietary fiber but According to a study done at the University of Colorado…
You'll burn 20-to-30% more fat by including more foods loaded with resistant starch like Navy beans, High amylose cornstarch, Bananas, Potatoes, Lentils, Oatmeal & Wholegrain breads in your meals and…
Resistant starch also prevents your body from storing too much fat and like other types of dietary fiber… Resistant starch also makes you feel fuller longer so you'll never gain weight (and only lose weight).
Avocados contain a sugar called mannoheptulose that helps lower insulin levels to prevent you from storing fat (or gaining weight).
More stuff you can eat & drink to lose weight…
Here's some foods that build muscle…

Hi, I'm 45, and quit smoking last February, which is about 9 months, I have put on between 15 and 20 pounds since. Most tell me I look healthier, I'm 5'3 and was always between 110 and 120 lbs. I'm now between 133 and 136 or so. I have been small mosy of my life, had a hysterectomy at 25, have RSD/CRPS, arthritis in my spine, and an ankle that might need replacement soon. I am not real "busy" I can't do that. I am disgusted with my body. I am trying to eat lots of fruit and water. But munch at night.

I FEEL THE FIRST STEP IS TO GO TO A WEIGHT LOSS CENTER AND ASK FOR OPTIONS. I WAS ONLY 5'2" AND WEIGHED 298. I HAD THE GASTRIC SLEEVE WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY ABOUT TWO MONTHS AGO AND I ALREADY LOST 40 LBS. I HAVE NEVER FELT SO MUCH HAPPIER. I AM NOW EATING HEALTHIER AND EXERCISING SOMETHING I NEVER DID BEFORE. I HAVE SO MUCH ENERGY NOW. IM NOT ALWAYS TIRED PLUS IM LOOKING FORWARD TO LOSING MORE WEIGHT IN THE FUTURE. I NEEDED THE SURGERY BECAUSE IT WAS THE FIRST STEP FOR ME. THEN EVERYTHING ELSE FELL INTO PLACE. I WATCH WHAT I EAT. ITS NOT EASY BUT SEEING THE WEIGHT COMING OFF IS MY ENCOURAGEMENT. SO NOW IM AWARE OF THE THINGS I EAT. I DONOT DO FAST FOODS, NO FRIED FOODS PLUS WATCH MY FAT INTAKE IT IS A NEW BEGINNING. TRYING TO LOOSE 100 LBS OR MORE BY YOURSELF WITHIN ONE YEAR IS VERY HARD. THE SURGERY WAS MY PUSH IT WAS LESS EVASIVE THAN THE GASTRIC BYPASS. PLUS I DIDNT WANT TO BE THAT SKINNY LIKE I SAW OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAD THAT SURGERY. WITH GASTRIC SLEEVE YOUR WEIGHT COMES OFF LOOKING MORE NATURAL AS IF YOU WERE WORKING OUT OPPOSE TO HAVING SURGERY AND THEN 2MONTHS LATER TOU LOST 100LBS. GIVE IT A SHOT IT HELPED ME. ITS BEEN TWO MONTHS AND I LOST 45LBS

Hi, I'm 38 5'3 and weigh 179 pds. I am in need of a diet plan to loose 65+pds can you give me some advise please.
September 10, 2013
Foods cannot technically burn fat. Foods merely provide us with nutrients, energy, etc. The way our body processes and utilizes these nutrients and energy is what allows us to burn fat. For example fruits are very nutrient dense and not very calorie dense which helps in reduction of overall calories .

Don't worry about losing weight. Have you noticed that you keep gaining weight? That is because you are 12 and your body is still growing! You're probably going to get taller, that adds weight, bone and muscle way much more than fat.
If you are worried about having /too/ much weight though follow these things.
1. do not drink pop, or other sugary drinks. Drink only water and maybe milk (not chocolate milk :P).
2. Get atleast 8 hours of sleep. alot of studies suggest not enough sleep leads to weight gain.
3. get exercise. aim for aleast 30 minutes every other day, this can be walking, riding your bike etc. There's also lots of exercises you can do in your house.
4. Eat as many fruits and vegetables as you can, aim for your basic 5-8 but if you can eat more then that's better. Bood rule of thumb, when making your meal plate, half of it should be veg, a quarter of it meat and the other quarter starchy food (potato, rice, past ect)
5. if you gotta snack eat real food, not junk food. Stitck to things like fruit (bananas, pears, apples, oranges etc), some nuts, lean dairy like yogurt or cottage cheese and ofcourse veggies.
do these things and you will be healthy, don;t worry so much about what the scales say.As I say, they are naturally going to go up cause you still have growing to do.

Hi I'm Brittany,

I'm 38 5'11" and weigh 220. I had bariatric surgery in 2011 and have lost most of the weight I needed to. My problem is the last 40 pounds. My highest weight was 690 so as you can see I have lost a lot of weight. My question is there any special foods that I should be eating to get rid of the last 40 pounds? If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks

Protein shakes and lower sugar intake. Protein forces the body to turn carbs into energy instead of them breaking down into sugars, therefore not creating unhealthy insulin levels in the body. The body needs 60-80g protein per day. The FEMALE body can absorb about 25g in one sitting, while the male can absorb 35-42. I can't afford the protein because I'm allergic to lactose and wheat. I had to buy a special brand that cost $6/day...but my family chipped in the first year after my surgery and I lost 120 lbs. I need to loose more, but it's harder now. Fish is your best friend for protein if you can't afford the shakes. I learned all of this from the Michigan Bariatric dietician and she knows what she's talking about. Whoever performed your surgery should have in office access to a dietician. Why don't you call them and ask if they can set you up with them or give you a referral to one? It's not easy when you have food allergies like I do. They help out a lot to make a customized plan.

Hi, I'm a 14 year old girl. I'm not fat even though people tell me I am. I way 135lbs, my main goal is to trim my stomach and flatten it. I don't want to do anything unhealthy and want to be healthy 100%. I tried working out everyday or every other day for 3 months and have gotten no where. I drink water constantly. I think I want to try something with yogurt. Any Advice?? I'll be waiting(:

how tall are you?

Loosing weight is all about numbers!! If you go over your calories allowed for the day, then your gonna gain weight . . . unless you burn some calories off during the day. I think you can look up calorie counter online and figure out how much calories you need in a day to lose/gain weight. I pretty much eat anything I want, but in proportions. . . meaning, I TRY not to overeat (the key word here is TRY HA HA). Its okay to allow yourself to get that craving every now and then (otherwise, your craving will give in anyways and you will eat way more) but again, in small proportions. Take a small bowl of chips instead of the whole bag in your hand !

Hi! I'm a 15 year old girl & I weight about 135 pounds. I'm 5'7" but I'm just not comfortable with my body! My parents think that I shouldn't lose weight and say that my body is "perfect" but I'm just not satisfied! I just wanted a few tips about how to lose weight healthily, Any suggestions?
April 06, 2013
i am 5'5" and was told by a dietician that i should weigh between 140-145, so i believe that at your height 135 is an excellent weight. just stay active and eat healthy and you will be fine.
April 06, 2013
i was about your age two years ago and i had the same problem. There are healthy ways of you losing weight without gaining it back:
1-Drink lots of water
3-Drink green tea
4-avoid any fried food
5-try and avoid candy but not completely i ate lots of chocolate and still lost weight
6-breakfast! eggs/oat meals
7-eat as much vegetables as u like and include some fruits like apples.
8-Do not eat any later 7pm
9-snack on nuts/oil free popcorn/fruits...
10-do not sit for a long time even if you work out daily. get up every 30-60 mins and stretch yourself or walk around.
11-do not go on any unhealthy diets! you loose weight too fast but ull gain them back. do not starve yourself or cut out fats completely. eat healthy or you will seriously become unhealthy if you follow a harsh diet and your face will start to look scary. your body will become loose if u loose weight with no exercise.
i hope this was useful

You have already received some great advice interms of diet and exercise, here are some ideas for you mental/emotional health. (I think that you're in a very healthy weight range for someone your height)
Consider these things.
-What is is that your are disatisfied about in your body? Why does it bother you?
-Are your feelings towards your body realistic? Is the thing that bothers you something you can, or even should change? (for an example I have very large shoulders and a large rib cage to match. I will always have these things, they cannot be changed.)
-Have people said things to you to make you feel this way? If so, consider their intentions. Do you think they have your best interests in mind?
Anyway these are just some thoughts. I know it might sound kind of hokey but sometimes our bad feelings towards our body come from outside influences and the feeling like we need to look like somebody else.
November 05, 2013
thanks and i was told that drinking concentrate juices was very bad for me but still thanks i want to lose a lot of weight but mostly i think you should exercise always to lose some fat and eat healthy at the same time because if you don't exercise and only eat healthy you wont lose as much weight
