I had a near death accident 2.5 years ago. I nearly lost my left leg and damaged nerves in my back, 2 surgeries.. the nerves seem to be healing though slowly. Before then I worked and ran everyday and was in great shape. Since then I have lost all my muscle mass. I took over a year just to walk on my own with a cane. But I'm healing and want to get back into it.. Hard to remember the routine (head injury too). I'm in the Middle East for awhile and have access to a good gym on site. Can you make recommendations on diet and exercise?

Extremely grateful - Gordon

Working out is just as important as your diet. As you start out, just try doing 10 minutes of high intensity cardio in your house. This includes things like jumping jacks, running up and down stairs, squats, anything that will keep your heart pumping. Try taking it a bit slower in the beginning if your body isn't used to it and work your way up. Remember, consistency is key

Hi Michelle,

ok... I don't have time or space to provide scientific background BUT rapid weight loss is ONE of MANY benefits to INTERMITTENT FASTING.

This is what worked and still works for me:

ONLY eat for a period of 8 hrs per day

DRINK ONLY WATER, COFFEE, TEA etc under 40 calories for the other 16 hours - maybe some amino supplements

DURING THE 8 hours you DO eat -- eat all your calories and macronutrients but adhere to the following limitation:

a 500 calorie deficit per day = 3500/week = 1 pound

it is not advised to lose more than 2-3 pounds per week

so if I need 2500/day to maintain my weight... If I only eat 2000 per day I will lose 1 pound... and so on... there are free calculators to find out what your caloric needs are based on age/exercise etc

Intermittent fasting can be a misleading term - basically it could equate to having dinner at 9pm, skipping breakfast, and eating lunch at 1pm.... easy cheesy right?

THE WONDERFUL part - if you maintain it, your lepton and insulin sensitivity will normalize and the "hunger" hormone ghrelin will all become entrained.

THIS is a healthy, natural and effective way to shed extra pounds - AND begin a new more energetic lifestyle. Recent studies show that human growth hormone and antiaging defenses are increased by intermittent fasting... we are animals after all... no other animal has food available 24/7 or especially upon awakening. Even Dr.Oz has mentioned it... lol

IT is NOT easy to start and stick with at first - DRINK WATER, DRINK WATER, DRINK WATER... PEE, PEE, PEE... BUT... once you SEE and FEEL the results in as soon as a matter of a week perhaps - you will know you can do it!!!!!!

remember - If you eat dinner at 9pm... its water at night... coffee or water in the morning... until 1pm.... at least 16 hours to be effective..

GOOD LUCK =]

PS ----- if you exercise in a fasted state, say immediately preceding breaking the fast (breakfast ;) --- you will do yourself a solid by not only burning calories, but because your body burned food and your fasted, the energy will be drawn from your bodies storage - FAT - and replenish-able glycol from muscles (REPLENISH-ABLE with food!) --- fasting at least 16 hours but no more than 24 for extended periods of time and making sure you get healthy macronutrients (fat, carb, PROTEIN) when you DO eat DOES NOT burn muscle -- and taking a simple amino supplement (BCAA) will provide a little extra help in preserving lean muscle during a calorie deficit.... GOOD LUCK

hi, i really appreciated your comment about the intermittent fasting. I'm actually currently trying and its going great so far but i just wanted to ask you a question please. How long should a person do this or is it an everyday thing. or should i do it for a week and then stop for a time and do it again, what exactly is the best thing to see results. thanx for your help im so glad i found your comment.

Hi

I am a 18 year female. I am about 5'9 and I weigh 154 lbs. I want to lose around 26 - 30 lbs and maintain it.

I have tried many different types of diets but they don't seem to have any effect on my body. When i don't see anything happening i tend to give up and eat unhealthy again.

My dream is to lose the fat on my belly, arms and thighs. I have a big thing with my work in june and would really love it if i could lose around 20 lbs by then. Could you maybe help me find something that suits me?

Tasha

Hi.

I am a 26 years old female. I am about 5'2 and I weigh 117 lbs. I want to lose around 11 - 13 lbs and maintain it.

I have stopped sugar intake for the past two years now. I have junk food cravings but maybe say once or twice a week. The thing that I find very difficult is stopping myself from eating red meats. Besides this I have a problem with my double chin and belly fat.

I live in India so I really wish someone could help me with a diet that included foods that are easily available here. Secondly I am not too keen on joining the gym because I have seen way too many people gain weight if and when they did stop gyming. I really wish there was an exercise regimen that I could do right at home. I feel very weak and lethargic as of now. Pls help

Hello, my name is kayla, and I am 24years old (African American). I am at a point where I am ready for a lifestyle change and want to lose the weight to become healthier......I weigh 330lbs, a full time college student, and I work full time, and I have a few events coming up this year (graduation, family reunion, and some vacations)....Can u let me know of a rapid diet and weightloss exercise routine that you think will work for me?

February 27, 2014

Ryan

intermittent fasting - see my above post

if you also do some exercise immediately before you break the fast each day you will increase your calorie deficit = lose more lbs per week

remember 1 pound = 3500 calories

KIMBERLY

Hi, I'm a 25-year-old full-time student with a demanding full time job that makes carving out gym time difficult. I am currently 5'4" and 185 pounds and would like to reach 135-140 in about six months (is that a reasonable expectation?). I have begun slowly cutting out white flour and canned veggies and frozen meals and replacing them with fresh. I do not eat a lot of beef or pork, I prefer turkey and chicken. My weight is concentrated in my hips, thighs and breasts, and I have more of a stomach pudge than I ever have before. I have even noticed a back fat roll starting to form! What can I do to make my 45 minute gym time (Mon,Wed,Fri,Sun) be the most effective that it can be? Should I do some home workouts on off days at night? 2 years ago I was in a size 8-10, now I am in a 14 on a good day. How do I get back into my old clothes?

Garza

Hello Adrian,
I am a 14 year old male who is 5ft 10in and have been working out on the total gym bench for the past two months. I routinely practice 3 times a week for about 45min. Also, my current weight is 160lbs. When I do sit ups, I feel an enormous bulge of muscle. However, I can only feel this when I work out and am in a certain position of flexing my abs. My goal is to have a six pack in 2 months. To accomplish gaining a six-pack, I feel it necessary to lose the little fat around my love-handles, thighs, and core areas. I do not eat sweets or drink sodas, and typically only eat fruit for lunch, a light breakfast, and a moderate amount for dinner. I was wondering if you could give me some pointers as to what I need to do to accomplish my goal!
Thanks so much!
Sincerely,
Carrot guy

Hi Adrian,

I'm so happy that I found your site! I'm 44 yrs old. I have a 6 and a 4 yr old. I have a busy life (I'm a teacher). I really don't have time to work out and probably don't eat very well all the time. I avoid sweets and sodas most of the time. I've gained approx 25 lbs in the last 4 yrs.

I'm 5'6" and weigh 150 lbs. People constantly ask me when my next baby is due. It's very depressing. This belly of mine is gross. Help!

Leenali

Hello Adrian,

I seriously need to lose weight but I'm afraid of losing too fast for a fear of excess unsightly skin. I also know I need to build my strength up to handle the exercises. I suppose what I'm asking is for a way to lose weight safely and efficiently without looking like a human bag? I'm 5'10" approx 295lbs. Is there any hope? I'm trying to do a complete overhaul but I really need a solid plan to execute stage by stage. I'm trying to achieve my formerly feminine body.

Eating unhealthy is my biggest issue, I don't have much money for expensive foods or a gym pass. Any advise on cheap meals a meal plan and some excersize a that don't require a gym that I can do?

Hey I got my tubes tied a few years ago and I think that and hitting 40 has changed my body in a way that has wrecked my metoblism and ability to lose weight quickly. In the past..I would gain 10 lbs ...I would simply stop sweets, workout 3 times a week and the weight would go away. Well since the tubial surgery 2 years ago I have gained 40lbs I cannot shake. I work mostly nights so my sleep pattern is crazy. The belly fat, bloating, and constipation is awful ....nothing Ive tried is working...can u suggest a plan for me?

What about Honey? Honey is sugar based, but in small amounts, with green tea or unsweetened almond milk as a dessert, do you think it's going to have a noticeably negative effect?

September 19, 2013

Rick

What I meant to say is Honey is a sugar, but it's not processed sugar nor is it even cane sugar. Honey is sugar in and of itself, so that's why I wonder how it compares to processed or cane sugar. Your thoughts?

So I'm 20 years old and weight around 225 lbs. During high school I was a three sport athlete and could eat whatever I wanted in any quantity. Since I've been in college I have only done intramural sports during the Spring both years. However I haven't done much except a 15 minute walk from my apartment to classes. I would like to get myself back under 200 lbs. I weighed around 185 during my built years of high school and getting as close to that as possible is what I'm hoping for. Thoughts? Thank you

August 22, 2013

Jennifer Kate

If you need to lose weight, exercise and portion control are the two most important things. Go to the gym, or just run or walk if you don't have a gym near you. Cut out junk food! If you need help with portion control get a tool like some measuring scoops or a portionmate, portion control kit . Once you start eating healthier it becomes easier because you get used to it.

July 20, 2013

MM

People also forget that hormones in meat make you gain weight. Also dairy is bad for you (google "dangers of cows milk" or/and "reasons to quit dairy"). Everyone should eat 80% wholefoods plant based diet (for life) and the lbs will melt off.
Also, not all oils are bad: UNrefined virgin coconut oil actually speeds UP thyroid function and helps burn fat, and can be susituted for butter. I cook with virgin coconut oil and I have lost a lot of weight! Please research benefits of coconut oil! Ohh, and also, hemp protein powder has 15grms of protein per 3 tablespoons! Wheatgrass in smoothies also helps keep your body "alkaline" (which cancer cannot live in an alkaline body...meat, dairy, processed foods are all "acidic" which acidic foods cause cancer (except lemons and raw apple cider vinegar).

Roy

I just saw this site and I was needing good advice to help me lose weight. I'm 32, 5'10", 270lbs and I need good help to get started on a good weight loss plan. To be honest I'd love to lose around 120lbs, but even just losing 50 is good right now. I have a major problem of eating to give me complacency from depression and I don't know where to turn for good support to help me lose this weight. I would like to be able to go home for the holidays a lot thinner. Is there any advice you can give to help me out? Thanks.

July 12, 2013

Jeremy

Hey Roy, I'm a similar weight at 6'3 274. I used to be 296! I have been struggling wi weight loss for 2 years. I used to be very thin and athletic but let over eating take control a few years ago. I am also an emotional eater. For example yesterday I ate very healthy all day. In the evening was at the store with my son and got stressed out about school and bought a box of cookies and ate the whole thing on the way home. I gained a pound the next morning not sure if its fat or water weight. The only advice I can give you is to find something that truly motivates you. Whether it be a family member, or to be able to run a marathon. For example I have decided to finally get this weight off for my wife, and son. I feel bad that my thin wife has to look at me, and I want to be healthy and in shape for my son. I decided to run in the mornings before work as this has been shown to burn stored fat and kick start your metabolism for the day. I also will lift weights 3 times a week in the evenings. I also have stopped rating past 7:30. Hope some of this helps as it even helps motivate me more by talking about it.

July 12, 2013

Adrian Bryant

July 14, 2013

Jose

If there's one piece of advice that I can give you is that you should really try a P90X. In the beginning it was really tough and I was barely able to keep up with the program as I too weighed 270lbs. With hard work work, determination, and diet you too can lose this weight. I know it sounds stupid doing something like P90X but I can tell you that it truly work; Especially, if you don't have a workout routine set for you. Even better, you won't feel as if you're working out alone. Get yourself a good diet plan and follow the P90X program and you will lose dramatic weight. On my first round of P90X, I lost 40lbs. On my second round of P90X I lost around 20lbs. I know results may vary through individuals but 60lbs in 6 months is not too bad. I transformed my body to a way I haven't seen it before and now weigh around 190lbs.

July 20, 2013

Jose

That's a very good point! Motivation is key in doing your workout routines and one must find a way to motivate themselves whether that may be a loved one or even oneself. Just find that drive to keep you going and same thing applies when dieting. One must have great self control when it comes down to dieting no matter what someone else is eating. One must keep a strict diet plan.

CJ

Hey, my name's CJ. I'm 18, 5'11 and 170lbs. I have some excess flab especially some unwanted belly fat and around my face, what kind of a diet/workout plan should I use? I never eat fast food and rarely eat out and I try to cram as many healthy vegetables into each of my meals. Along with losing 20-30 lbs (which ultimately I won't because..) I'm trying to put on muscle. I go to the gym 4-5 days of the week and do cardio every day that I go and strength training as well Any tips on specific workout plans/diet plans that aren't too hard to follow that could help me lose about 20 lbs by let's say, October?
