Hi there! This site is great and so informative I've already lost 15 lbs following the calorie guidelines. I've recently hit a plateau unfortunately, and was wondering if you had any exercise and diet suggestions to help me reach my goal of losing 40 pounds. I am currently 5'8" and 219 pounds at 28 years old. I have very large breast for my frame and if you had any suggestions as to make them smaller that would be great! Lol

Hello, I am 43 years young,5'4" and weight 275. I have a nice sized butt but I would like it perkier and rounder. I know it will shrink some with weight loss going forward, so even if it grows with muscle it's fine as well. Right now I exercise 3-4 times a week,as I am a nurse and work most of the time, about 50 hrs a week . I rotate upper/lower strength training and always do 20-30 of cardio each time. I eat about 1800 to 2100 in calories. 2-3 meals a day,trying to incorporate at least 2 snacks to keep my metabolism leveled out. I don't restrict my diet as I am in a lifestyle,and I want to eat in a way that will work long term. I cut down on sugar and processed foods and eat lots of vegetables fruits and protein from all sources. Can you suggest a workout plan and meal plan. Also what will help keep my breasts or at least keep them perkier as weight loss is making them shrink. Thank you in advance.

Hi Adrian-

I am a 34 year old female, 5'2" and 129lbs. I am towards the end of my weight loss journey and have already lost about 48lbs using myfitness pal and 6 days a week of cardio/strength. I have PCOS and have insulin resistance. My daily calories have ranged from 1200-1600 without eating back exercise calories. I began the 1600 recently as I've added more strength training into my workout routines, with my macros at 40/30/30. I have remaining fat in my stomach and love handles that I'm trying to get rid of but it doesn't seem to be budging. Do you have any advice or suggestions?

Hi! I am a 68 year old woman(that wants to feel like a 48 year old!). Ten years ago I had a heart attack... and was told that I have CHF. Nonetheless, since going some-what raw, the doctor said that my test is showing mark improvement! However, I have gain 45 lbs since then with excess edema in legs and feet. Exercise is very hard on my knees and legs. I also do not eat a lot maybe once a day. fasting is one of my greatest feast for I sometimes eat after 16 or 19 hours of no food. tell me please what to do to loose 60 lbs. in one year. I will follow it.

Thank you

You definitely need to be eating atleast every 3-4 hours to rev up your metabolism going to long without eating sends your body into starvation mode which then makes ur body hold onto every bit of fat that u consume i also still swear by weight watchers.. only diet ive ever done where i lost 40lbs in 3 months.

Been out of the loop for a while...having babies, being a wife. Made no time for myself. It's my time now. 5' 4" and 220lbs. I'm 39 years old. I want my 40's to be awesome. I'm DONE. I want to lose this and am raring to go. I'm the type who needs to see results to stay motivated. Cardio or weights? Exact meal plans?

dalvarado

Yes! Thank you, you made weight loss clear while so many others try to make it hard to understand (it's hard enough to do, why do people want to make it hard to understand?!?).

Weight loss is only about:
Calories In v. Calories Out.

Any human being on this planet who is overweight is so because they put more calories into their body than they burned.

Hi. Im 5'3", my body fat ranges from 19-21% on average, and I stay between 141-144lbs. I powerlift and do light weights about 4-6 days a week. The most cardio I do is 1000m on the row machine as a warm up. I also meal prep at least 4 days out of the week. But, I can't seem to lose inches or pounds. I always stay the same unless I do a juice cleanse. How can I take a healthy route to obtain 15-16% body fat and drop between 131-135lbs?

Hello, I am 36 years old. I brisk walk for an hour on inclines and level terrain 3-5 times a week. I am 5'3 and weigh 170 pounds. I drink massive amounts of water daily and eat 6 small meals like
9:30 a.m. light Yoplait yogurt and a cup of coffee (no sugar)
11:30 whole grain bread, light mayo, sliced turkey, tomato, onion and cheese sandwich
1:30 p.m. a mixture of cashews, pistachios, and almonds with grapes or an apple
3:30 p.m. K protein bar
5:30 p.m. grilled chicken breast, green beans, rice pilaf
7:30 More fruit or skinny girl (brand) popcorn
Should I be eating less, more. This counting calorie thing is confusing.

Kristena

Hi, I am a 36 years old female about 5' 3 in height & weigh 167 lbs. I have started walking on a manual treadmill at an 8% incline. I have been doing this for 5 days walking about 15 minutes a day because that is all I can handle. I stop when my legs start hurting. I am limited on my exercising due health issues. I am not used to being this big and have tried several things. I drink nothing but water, but occasionally I will drink tea or soft drink. I have a calorie food journal & try my best to maintain the right portions, but sometimes I am either not hungry for several hours and will end up eating a big meal & other times I have a hard time measuring things right. I want to lose inches more than anything else. However, I am getting very discouraged because it seems no matter how hard I try I am not losing anything. I lose a pound and then gain 2 more. What would be your advice? I am not a very active person. I'm not completely lazy, but I do spend a lot of time just sitting and watching tv besides walking on treadmill. I need something that will help me see a difference quickly because that will give me the motivation to keep up with it & maintain my weight loss. Please help. I want to feel beautiful again!!!

Jennifer

This doesn't make sense. On the one hand there is a list of foods which NOT to eat while trying to lose weight; then, the author says you can lose weight eating whatever you want as long as you stay under a certain number of calories...so which is it? Stay away from certain foods and lose weight or eat what you want as long as you are under the calories you need????

July 19, 2014

Adrian Bryant

actually its both.

1. TRUE: you can eat whatever you like as long as you eat right amount of calories but...

2. ALSO TRUE: if you eat addictive foods (like snacks, fatty, salty or sugary) foods then it will be harder to lose weight with the constant hunger and cravings those foods cause making you eat too much (or too many calories)

Sasha

Hi, I'm 5'7 and 154 at the moment. A year ago I lost 20lbs and I'm really thin now, but I have not lost much of my stomach (current measures between 31-34 inches). I've lost all of my curves but still have a stomach :(. In the above article it states to lose weight in order to get a flatter stomach, which I really don't want to do because I'm already thin. My goal is to get my curves back and have a flatter stomach. How can that be done simultaneously?

Jared

I'm a 20 year old guy and I'm 5'9 weighing 165 pounds. I'm interested in building an athletic body so I followed a muscle building program but gained lot of fat. I'd like to lose fat while still maintaning the athletic lean mass I have built. The calculator says I should eat 1600 to 2000 calories. Do you think eating this amount of calories will get rid of my extra fat and mantain my muscles beneath it so I can get "definition" rather than just becoming smaller?

July 02, 2014

Adrian Bryant

the estimate is just an "estimate" so it probably will be your best bet to eat 1600-to-2000 but you will only find the true answer thru tracking your calories daily.

I recommend you do this here to build mass while losing fat

July 03, 2014

Jared

I do I know if I'm losing muscles or doing something bad to my body with too little calories? Also, do you think lifting heavy is not required to maintain muscles?

July 03, 2014

Adrian Bryant

to maintain you don't have to workout as much. as long as you don't go completely lazy for LOOOONG periods of time you won't lose much at all.

as for calories that is something you will have to find out thru trial and error but in my oprion I don't see you losing much muscle at all on a 1600-to-2000 calorie diet

Sandra

I am 41 year old female and have hypothyroidism. I weigh 155 pounds and am 5'1 tall. What do you suggest for me to lose weight? I'm single and am hardly ever home due to work and my exercise routine is limited due to health.

July 01, 2014

Sandra

I am unable to work out due to health restrictions. So you don't think I should watch certain things with diet? So no counting carbs or fat or anything just watch my calorie intake?

July 03, 2014

Ashley

The most important thing for you to do is make sure that your thyroid is managed by a physician- unmanaged hypothyroidism can cause weight gain. Next, sign up for a calorie counting app like myfitnesspal.com (recommended above). Although the logic behind this weightloss is that a calorie is a calorie and focusing on the number will help you lose weight, it is also true that eating foods in the right proportions helps metabolism as well. Myfitnesspal.com keeps track of your ratio of carbs/proteins/fats daily. I hope this helps, wishing you success in your path to a healthy lifestyle.

July 05, 2014

Adrian Bryant

just calories. you can eat lots of protein and just fat and still gain weight. with less calories you'll eat less carbs anyway so no need to count carbs BUT that does not mean you should make your diet 100% carbs neither.

see this here for workotu options

Elcee

Ok, I'm trying to up my calories (see comments below re: Elcee who is me) but what happens when you're just not hungry to eat more calories? I'm seriously not hungry enough to up my calories more than 900 - 1000. How do I make myself eat more? I need to figure this out, or, according to what everyone is saying, I will NOT loose weight! Ugh.

June 11, 2014

Adrian Bryant

it could be that you are eating more than 1000 so double check that but you don't have to force yourself to eat. see this

Mandy LM

Hi I am 25 ,5.1ft, and weigh 135pounds
Will I lose round 15/20 pounds if I do 2 protein shakes a day one for breakfast and one for dinner and have a normal healthy sized portion meal for lunch and I like water so I drink plenty anyway .

I would like to lose 15/20 pounds in 2/3 weeks . As I am going on holiday .

June 06, 2014

Ashley

Hi Mandy, I would encourage you to follow the daily calorie recommendation. If you choose to drink protein shakes as meals that is fine, just make sure you are counting calories. Also, protein shakes tend to be high in sugar- make sure you watch out for that! If you are having trouble feeling full, eat steamed veggies with the protein shakes, they provide fiber which increases satiety and vital nutrients not otherwise found in protein shakes. Drinking plenty of water will also help you feel full throughout the day! Exercising (cardio specifically) may help to speed up results.

hi hope u can help im 70 about 145 lbs about five foot... moderately active try to walk between one and two miles a day plus now i have started weight training and exercises at home. myproblem is eating .i lean towards the vegetarian side so i cant seem to get enuf calories..ppl say eat more nuts and seeds but those have a lot of fat tho i do eat some of those..same with beans (carbs) and dairy (sodium) i do limit my self to all these foods so how can i get more cals? somedays i dont even reach 1000 or somewhat over...can u please tell me how much i shud be eating? im always afraid if i eat too much i wont lose..thanxxx

June 06, 2014

Adrian Bryant

how are you tracking those caloreis?

are you saying you cant lose weight on 1000 cals?

are you starving on those 1000 cals?

June 08, 2014

carole

no i am not losing. i have been researching i need to eat more and as i was saying leaning towards the vegetarian side its hard to get more cals when u dont eat meat .. no im not starving i eat a lot of vegg some lo fat dairy some carbs etc.. i track the cals by pencil and paper by portion size etc. have you not heard that one of the reasons of not losing is not eating enough but still exercising? thnx for reply

June 08, 2014

Christina

You need to eat more legumes, nuts, seeds, and other healthy fats like coconut oil/coconut and avocado. These will add to your calorie count but you should still lose weight because these are healthy foods. After all, a handful of nuts/seeds is always better than a doughnut or some other unhealthy fattening food.

June 09, 2014

Adrian Bryant

so as for tracking the portion sizes you still count those as calories as well - correct? because on 1000 calories you should be losing weight IF YOU'RE tracking correctly and that's why you need to double check your amounts. see this

June 09, 2014

Elizabeth

I am 26 yrs old, 5'7,195#. I have a 16 month old and hoped I would have lost my weight by now. My goal weight is 135#. I track my calories on my fitness pal (1000 cals). I haven't seen much result. I try to get to the gym at least 3x a week but am finding it hard juggling being a mom, working and being a nursing student! I need to get in shape so I can find self confidence! Please help!

June 03, 2014

you should be losing on 1000 cals alone so double and triple check your calorie counts and add this workout

June 01, 2014

Adrian Bryant

just use this workout and this diet to quickly get to 140

June 01, 2014

Ashley

Hello Reham, I would recommend to start counting calories and writing down everything you write. Use the calculator above for an estimate on how many calories you should eat per day. As for exercise, try walking twice a day then eventually build up to jogging. Unfortunately, there is not quick way to get down to 140lbs, it takes a lot of work and time. It is recommended that you lose no more than 1-2 lbs per week to remain healthy. Faster weightloss than the recommended could cause kidney damage or impaired metabolism.

I am unabl to loose weight, my scale goes up and down 5 pounds but I'm yet to loose 20lbs after 3 months. I suffer from thunder (inner) thighs, and big arms. Why can't I loose weight? My body hurts from these workouts.

go here to lose weight and maintain or even enchance curves

May 21, 2014

Ashley

Hello. Unfortunately our bodies do not allow us to pick and choose where to lose weight, despite what anyone else will claim. To target and enhance specific areas I would recommend setting up a consultation with a personal trainer at a gym near you. Explain to them your goals, they will be able to recommend a workout that can enhance your curves/ body type. Best of luck!

Hey so I stumbled across your website while searching for info. I am 32, 5'7, 168 lbs. I am trying to loose about 18-20 lbs. I am in military and I stay very active. I run 4-8 miles and variation of body weight workout early morning then go to gym in evening to for weight lifting. this is my normal 4-5 days routine.

Currently I am yo yo between 5-10 lbs. I am not sure what exactly I can do or what do I need to exactly eat to keep my nutrition in line. I appreciate your comments.

thanks

Keith

Hi I found my self here just like many others. I am a male that is very active, and my height is 5'6" and weight 198-Lb's. Next week will make a full month I have been using the treadmill every day for the month at 1 hour a day ranging between 2-1/2 miles to 3 miles. Also the results show ranging between speeds changing up from 3.0 mph to 7.2 mph just mixing it up walking then running for 1 hour a day. Also my results show Calories burned around 400 a day and Fat calories 125 a day. So far it's week 3 and only see a total of 10-Lb's lost.I only eat 1 time a day and it's dinner, I have been watching my portions sugar, and salt intake. I can best calculate having about 1,000 calories a day or less. Also due to economical reasons, I can not really afford to intake 3 meals a day, what would be the cheapest way to gain the other two meals to close the gap and complete a 3 meal a day diet? And what should my weight goal be, along with proper daily calorie intake? I read where Hugh Jackman was working on a 6,000 calorie diet daily to work on his movie and looks really great, what advise can you advise me of, thank you in advance. And to all of you good luck with your goals.

May 07, 2014

Adrian Bryant

so is your overall goal weight loss? I think it is and if so then you're on the right track if you lost 10 pounds in 3 weeks and it's not about how many meals you eat but the number of calories you eat to determine if you gain/ lose or maintain weight.

May 07, 2014

Elcee

I'm 58 years old and weigh 160. I've been eating 1000 calories per day (I'm very anal about counting them and keeping track with a journal). I do 3-4 miles per day on the treadmill and 30 minute weight lifting with a Jillian Michaels kettle-bell DVD. According to my calorie tracker, I'm burning between 400-600 per day depending on how far I go on the treadmill. I cannot lose weight to save my life and have no idea why. I also drink approximately 8-10 glasses of water per day. I'm, for the most part, on a raw diet.. lots of veggies, protein, a little fruit... but I'm starting to panic because my son is getting married in september and I CANNOT lose weight! I want to loose at least 30 pounds but am getting very frustrated and depressed because no matter what I do the scale isn't moving down. I'm supposed to get a tummy tuck in 6 weeks but if I'm not within 5 pounds of my desired weight, the doctor will not proceed. It's looking glim.. Any suggestions would be so very much appreciated. Thank you advance for your time. XOXO

April 30, 2014

adrian bryant

how tall are you and switch to a more accurate calorie tracker like myfitnesspal because 1000 cals alone should force weight loss

May 02, 2014

Elcee

I'm 5'3". After reading your site, I actually just upped my daily calories to 1300, and upped my protein to 103 grams. I was initially 1000 calories and no more than 45 grams of protein daily. I'm also working out 4 times per day now... 1 for 30 min with Jillian M kettlebells, and the other three times on the treadmill for 10-20 minutes going as hard as I can at an incline. Are these the beneficial changes or do you have other suggestions?

May 02, 2014

Elcee

I just joined myfitness pal, and their estimates I should be eating no more than 1200 calories and only 60 grams of protein daily. Ugh. I'm so confused... :-(

May 02, 2014

Melody

A general rule of thumb for good health and if you are trying to lose weight you need to watch sugar intake. Read labels. Keep sugar intake to around 25 grams per day, and no more than 32 (that is high) daily. Also, when looking at your food plate, 1/2 should be vegetables = as colorful as possible, 1/4 should be protein = beans, almonds, etc. and 1/4 should be carbs = pasta, rice. Also, MAKE SURE to....1) eat 3 meals and two snacks per day - ALL PROTEIN BASED, eat within one hour of waking up, eat every 2 - 3 hours, drink as much water as possible (at least 8 glasses per day) and TRY not to eat past 7 pm...8 pm at the latest. I just got this advice from a hormone specialist and have lost 4.2 lbs in 5 days. I exercise lightly (speed walking) two times a week. I have been keeping my daily calories between 900 - 1100 per day. I am vegetarian / vegan, hence the examples of food sources. Hope this helps :)

May 02, 2014

Elcee

Hi Melody,

Thank you for responding. I appreciate your input!  I do watch my sugar – including fructose from fruit. I’m eating vegetables and proteins, but no carbs. Carbs are my downfall.. pasta, bread and butter, etc. Carbs are my chocolate. But I’ve been eating quinoa and things of that nature. I eat three meals per day, and have my protein snacks. I don’t eat within one hour of waking up because I exercise first per the advice on this site. I then eat my first meal after my high intensity first morning workout. On the average I drink 10 glasses of water per day. I’m also exercising high intensity 2 – 4 times per day and eat within 20 minutes of my workouts. What is your age, height and weight? Of your daily calorie intake, how many grams of protein are you eating? Thanks again for your input ((((hugs))))

May 02, 2014

Adrian Bryant

to end all confusion you simply need to track it yoruself b/c all that I, MFP and other s can do is estimate what is best. you will only know what is best thru trial and error of tracking

May 04, 2014

Elcee

Actually, after following some of your advice on this site, namely, 4 short HIT sessions for 10-20 throughout the day was the key. I started doing this last week and what a difference it made in loosing weight. OMG! Not only that, but I accomplish so much more intensity when working out hard for 10 - 20 minutes, than riding the treadmill for 60 plus minutes. It's also less intimidating knowing I'll be exercising for short periods than one looooong period. I also upped my proteins. was too low initially. Thank you for such a wonderful site. I've learned so much and have shared it with others as well. Thank you!!!!

May 05, 2014

Denton Adams

You have to be careful eating such few calories. Anything under 1200 calories per diem can cause your body to go into starvation mode. If you body is used to getting too few calories, then it will hold on to fat instead of burning it. I had this same problem. Another problem was this, when I began to eat 1800 calories a day I gained weight for about two months. After that I started to loose, the weight I gained and more. I guess it took my body the two months to realize that I wasn't starving it anymore. Anyway, good luck with your weight loss! Don't give up!

May 16, 2014

Amanda

You're unable to lose weight because you're only eating 1000 calories per day and working out so hard! You have to have sufficient calorie intake to lose weight. You're body probably thinks it's in starvation mode because of your low calorie intake and is keeping every bit of food you eat to sustain energy with all of the activity you are doing throughout the day.

June 01, 2014

I am very disappointed to be reading your comment to her. Anyone who has taken any nutrition courses in college or even gone to college for dietetics knows that 1000 calories alone along with all of the activity she is doing throughout the day will not force weight loss, it will actually cause her to keep the weight on because her body is keeping every calorie for energy. She needs to up her calorie intake with all of the cardio and weight lifting she is doing in order to lose weight. You don't just force your body to lose weight by starving it.

please read this and of course 1000 calories is TOO Low for long term weight loss success UNLESS you can realistically stick to that without going crazy but the point I'm trying to make is that your body will not shutdown and NOT use energy/calories if you don't eat

starvation mode is a myth. see why but yes... 1000 is too low for most people looking to lose weight in the long term

Thank you SO MUCH for your interest. I'm getting really discouraged. Maybe I'm not loosing weight because I'm eating too little calories. I don't know.. I'm feeling very frustrated and depressed. So much work for such little reward. I'm really lost at this point. :-(

I'm 25 years old and 4'10. I weigh 156lbs and I'm currently working out everyday with Sunday being a rest day but I haven't been able to lose any weight. I am working on my stomach and arms because those are my biggest concerns right now. I have never had skinny arms which is frustrating. Do you guys have a meal plan suggestion for me to lose weight and works to help with my arms and pudgy tummy? Please help!

Hi, I am female, just turned 34, am almost 5'11" and way between 165-170. I have extra fat and loose skin on my stomach from having 2 children. A few years ago I got down to 145 pounds and really loved that weight, however I was starving all the time. I have a condition where my heart races all the time and when I am hungry it races even faster so it is best I do not go hungry. Also, my lower back is very weak and tends to take a lot any time I try and work out my lower abs. Once my back is sore I can't do anything until it is better or it throws my back out completely. Any suggestions on diet and workouts?

I workout 4 times a week doing heavy weight training and i was loosing a lot of weight just dieting and doing that but recently my weight loss has slowed and i have kept the fat in the aforementioned regions. I would like to loose as much of that weight as possible without loosing too much muscle. Any suggestions? thanks :)

Hi! I'm a 28 year old female that just had a baby 8 months ago. I'm currently 271 pounds- I've always been fat (never lower than 190 pds as an adult) and unable to lose weight no matter what I do. Ive tried eating low carb, paleo, vegan and raw food dietary styles- nothing has worked past 5-8 pounds getting lost, and then regained x2. I workout 3-4 times per week and easily burn 450 cals in one session. I record what I eat- I don't eat fast food or junk, I'm still vegan (but wouldn't mind low carb if I have to) btw. I've also been to the dr. and my thyroid is fine/all tests came back normal, however, I come from a family of stocky people. Might you have an ideas for me, that I could use? Thank you!!!!!! :D

I'm 21 5'7" and probably weigh about 200. My goal is 145. I just had a baby Feb. of 2013. I'm having trouble getting motivation because I simply don't know where to even start. I just need to get in shape and tone up. I usually just go to the gym on my lunch breaks and use the elliptical. I would like to know a eating plan and work out schedule that will work for me. Help me??

Hi, I'm a female 28 years old, I weight about 105lbs. I'm trying to be a 100lbs it's hard for me although I do interval tanning 4 days a week and I eat about 1200 calorie a day. After my pregnancy I lost about 15lbs after 3 years now I can not lose the 5lbs I want. I don't want to starve my self because that's what I did after my pregnancy I just want to know what im doing wrong and what I should do??

Thank you

I am a 49 year old female. Many factors have played a role in my 25lb weight gain over the past year. I quit smoking last May, moved far away and haven't been able to find work yet. I am 5'6" and was 125lbs, so now I am 150lbs. Before moving I was very active and worked 3 jobs. We purchased an elliptical which I use mostly every day, I have joined a fitness class (once a week), I've been eating healthy (vegetables, fruit, low fat meats, no bread), but not one single pound has came off and I am very disappointed and frustrated. I used to take pride in my appearance, but now I just want to hide under a rock and I now wonder if I am going to be this size forever. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

Hi, I am 25 years old, female, and 5' 4" and 203 pounds. I recently lost 30lbs and gained 20 of them back. Ugh. I have been doing Focus T25 workout 25 minutes a day. I have lost inches and 1.5 lbs in two weeks and myfitnesspal told me that I should eat 1330 calories. Is this enough to lose weight in a good manner? If not how can I amp up my workouts? I also run every other day with the video and average about 400-600 calories burned a day.

Can I still eat what I want? Because when even eating healthy and with smalls meals everyday I can barely get to those 1330 calories most days? I just want my belly gone! Help!

what you got setup is good enough for weight loss but go here to amp things up

I have just had core decompression in my left hip and have to have it in the right after the left has healed. I have gained a lot of weight in the past few years due to pain and not being able to get the kind of exercise I need to loose. I fear getting any bigger than I am now as I am uncomfortable with the way I look and feel. What kinds of exercises can I do to get some cardio. I can not walk or put any pressure on my legs.
