Hi my name is Elizabeth and I'm 20 years old, I just had a baby five months ago and gained way too much weight during my pregnancy. I am 5' 3" and 140 pounds, I lost fifteen pounds in the last month from cutting calories to under 1000 and only drinking water. I have been doing as many sit ups as I can but I don't see much change and I've stopped losing weight since I hit 140. What can I do to get to a healhy weight of 110-125 soon?

Hi Adrian,

I really need help! I weigh approx 180 lbs and im 5'11", but my belly fat and thighs won't go down to size! I had an 11lb8oz baby boy in June of last year, and gained entirely too much weight. I'd like to get back down to 155lbs, where I was before I got pregnant. What would you suggest? Please help!

April 02, 2014


omg I just found your site and I am so glad that I did! It is amazing. I just have a question because I just started a modeling a few months ago and my agency wants me to slim down. HOWEVER, I am black and I don’t actually have much fat on my body I have a very toned body and their main concern are my thighs. They aren’t HUGE, in fact they are very slim but they are still just a tiny bit muscular.
In the summer I was going on 7-day soup diets which worked really well. I’ve lost a about 7 pounds and now I am at a weight of 127! I need to be about 118-120lbs though. (for reference I am 5'9 and 20 years old). I stopped the soup diets because soup was all I would eat during the day pretty much and water and I would be exercising 5 days a week for roughly an hour and half to 2 hrs and I would be exhausted by the end of the week. I just switched to a 900 calories per day diet. I got a membership at a gym and now do ONLY cardio 5 times a week for about and hour and half. I don’t do any weights because I’m not trying to get muscle I want to lose it. How would you suggest I go about it though? I don’t know if I am doing it the right, or even healthy, way. Also what exercises would you suggest? Its tricky for me because I’m not trying to burn fat. I want my body to “eat” some of my muscle mass. Thanks you're awesome :)

would you be able to send a pic of your legs to nowlossATgmail along with exactly how you want them to look. it would help to send a pic of how you want them to look as well

There seems to be one thing most dieters miss, muscle weighs nearly 4 times the weight of fat. Standing on the scales is disheartening, because as you lose fat and gain muscle and you go up in weight before coming down. You're getting healthier but getting heavier to start with.

I've gone from a BMI of 27 to 29, but my body fat has gone from 28% to 19% and I've lost nearly 4 inches / 10 cms around the waist. Even though I'm heavier I'm healthier.

Get the tape measure out. Real healthy gains will show in the reduction in your waist and hips, this is what you're looking for. Another misconception is more time at the gym. Yes do cardio, it's good for your heart. Do muscle development too. Your best weight loss happens through active tissues burning energy, something your body does all day in your muscles. Good muscle grown with cardio and watching the calories will get you where you want to go long term and if you work at it good long term habits to keep you that way.

September 14, 2013


I hope you can answer to me, I try to be positivo cause I never get replies! Well I have a Athletic body shape, Im 23, 5.3 height and 116 pounds! Im very short and even 1 extra pound is obvious on my petite frame. 3 years ago I lost 4 kilos by changing eating habits and mantain myself between 113-116 pounds. Im a ballerina and have to lose 10 pounds according to the standards of the company I want to enter in my country. Buuuut I freaking (sorry) can not lose those 10 pounds! I diet and exercise but nothing. I have 15 days doing HIIT and diet 1000~1200 cals a day and any pound has gone! Next audition will be for summer camp in 1 month and need help! Thank you!

July 13, 2013


You need to eat a bit less calories and do cardio like running for 30 mins at least 3 times a week. Also do some resistance workouts preferably whole body workouts. And be careful what you eat.
This worked for me I lost 30 pounds in less than 3 months doing this.
Good luck!

July 26, 2013


plz help i m 19 years and my weight is 59 kg and height is 5.2 inches and bmi is 23.7 and hip to waist ratio is 0.87 want to lose about 5 kgs what to do

May 20, 2013


Thank you for good info above. I am assuming these veggies do their best work when consumed raw. I wonder if diuretic capabilities are affected if juiced.

April 15, 2013



I'd really appreciate your help. I started the gym and have been doing intervals, and cardio by following your plan. I sweat loads when I work out and have been eating 1600 cals a day. I've never exercised before and been eating way more than 1600 cals a day. However, I haven't lost any weight in 2 whole weeks :S even my body fat seems the same. Could it be water retention as somebody said when you start exercising your body retains water around your muscles and bones?

I weigh 164 pounds and am 5'5 tall female.

Please help"

March 21, 2013

Adrian Bryant

how are you tracking your calories and how long are your workouts and no...

you usually only retain water when you are not drinking enough water

March 22, 2013

This is why

Hello It is Probably because you are eating a bunch stick to 1600 and it should work. if you are consuming too much then you are really just putting all the calories you just sweat out, back on.

April 17, 2013


You're eating too much. And how much of the calories you're taking in are actually protein and complex carbs? You can cut the calories all you want, but if you're eating the wrong things it won't do you any good. You need to do 30 mins of cardio every day and please protect your knees with sleeves if you choose to run. I've lost 318 lbs so my advice is pretty good. :)

August 05, 2013



I'm a 43 yr old female, I work out daily 5am cardio and weights for like an hour. I take green bean coffee bean extract, drink black coffee before my workouts and I eat pretty healthy throughout the day along with juicing with kale and some fruits in my nutri-bullet. I weigh like 162 5'5 1/2 but I only wear size 7/8. I seem to gain and retain muscle. I want to get back down to my 155 weight and I am really struggling losing 2 or 3 pds. Can you please offer some suggestions. Thank you.

March 18, 2013


Hi im 16 and atlease 220 i just had a baby four months ago im 5'3 i really would like to get down to 140 135 maybe please help me

March 13, 2013


Okay, I'm 13 years old and I weigh 166 lbs and I am 5'4 . All my friends at school have the perfect bodies that all guys love which makes me look like a huge walrus when I'm with them. My main problems are my arms, my flabby belly, and most of all my love handles . My goal is to lose 20-30 lbs before my graduation on may the 15th which is about 70 days fro now. I'm not sure if Ill reach my goal before then, but most of all I want to get rid of this overweight body and look good when I go swimming in June and I want to keep that healthy weight and maintain it forever. I've read on here to eat 5 meals every day but with my schedule I'm not sure i can. Because I have school. I'd really appreciate any plan you have that you think would help. Thank you so much.

March 08, 2013


With a school schedule this is what I would recommend:

Meal 1: Having a big breakfast. Oatmeal with sliced banana, cereal, or two slices of two with peanut butter along with a side of fruit.

Meal 2: Snack – this will probably be around your lunctime which I assume is too early to actually have a real big lunch. Why not have a few small snack items like fruit, hummus and pita

Meal 3: Lunch – why not have lunch after school. By this point you’re probably hungry and can have a regular meal

Meal 4: Dinner

Meal 5: Light snack if you’re still hungry

If you want to work out why dont you get some Zumba videos to do at home. They're fun and you'll be dancing so it wont even feel like you're working out.

good luck and congratulations on your graduation!

April 18, 2013


I am 13 and weight 135 i desperately want to weigh atleast 110 i dont have a lot of time and need this weight gone for good? how do i do it?

February 21, 2013


Hi Jenna,
Please don't be too hard on yourself. The best way to lose weight fast is to cut back on carbs. Eat chicken or Turkey breast, eggs, protein shakes or bars. Write down everything you eat. Go for long fast walks every day. Drink lots of water. Don't stress about it...stress will cause you to gain weight. Meditate and picture yourself looking how you want to look when you reach your goal. Take vitamins and iron supplements. There are a lot of calories in fruit but you can eat all the green veggies you want...and carrots if you like them. I wish you the best..Don't do anything stupid like vomiting or taking laxatives.

February 22, 2013


Remember this number 180 beats/ minute. You subtract your current age from that 180 and you have your fat burning heart rate number. Try to stay at that number using a machine or life cycle at the gym or get a heart rate monitor. Work out at that rate for an hour a day and make sure to warm up muscles before and cool down after about 15 min. each. Also watch your calorie intake

March 09, 2013

I am having the same issue as Wendy Castro, I have Multiple Sclerosis, have gain 30 pounds of water weight since being diagnosed. I've been watching what I eat and since the beginning of the month I've been going to the gym doing 30 mins on the tredmill and bike. I started at 291 and down to 282 lbs, my goal is to get down to 190(haven't been that small since jr. high school), should I add more to my routine?

October 18, 2012


I am 5ft.5 in. And weigh 145 lbs. The goal is 130. I am a very active and it is easier to do flips and stuff when you are lighter so what can i do to loss the wieght?

September 03, 2012


hey im a guy 16 and 1/2 im 290 approx. im 6'2'' i want to be at a healthy weight thats 180lb what else do i need to do besides exercise at least an hour daily

August 16, 2012


Umm... work out two hours a day, go heavy on the cardio and swear off the Ho-Ho's, drink a gallon or more water per day, sweat; even if that means rolling on three sets of sweatshirts and pants, hit the eliptical and sweat your balls off, not a comfortable situation but if you're staying on top of your water intake, this wont be a problem. Get on the freeweights and off the bacon, muscle mass burns fat and calories and increases metabolism. Read up on Adkins and ditch the carbs.

And BTW, after about 18 or so, you will stop adding the fraction when you tell people your age.

Act fast bro because being 16 is hard enough as it is without also having to deal with major obesity, and a major lack of teh poon resulting from the "dunlop".

You're 16 and borderline morbidly obese, drop the W.O.W, and go jog, jog untill your legs give out and do jt again tomorrow to burn out the amino acids built up in your muscles. You will notice that you can jog farther and farther each day

August 22, 2012


Hi! I'm 15, 5' 3" and I way 160 lb. I know it's a lot but I need to lose about 5 lbs in the next 2 days. I don't eat much but I don't starve myself. I'm willing to work extremely hard to get these quick results. My body composition tends to help me hide my fat. I have a small upper body and flat stomach but my lower body is in comparison rather large.

August 16, 2012


i'm 17 and 180lbs...i tend to gain weight so fast..i workout and eat small amounts of any food i want...but still i can't lose the weight..sometimes i gain it back or it remains the same.

August 14, 2012

Adrian bryant

how tall are you?

August 14, 2012


You are eating small amounts of what exactly? Cut out the flour and processed sugar in your diet, you will see results within a week. If anything store bought has sugar listed in the first 5 ingredients, don't eat it. Lunch and dinner: Eat 4 oz. protein/meat, 6 oz veggies, 10 oz salad, 1 non tropical 6 oz fruit for breakfast with 8oz plain nonfat yogurt. I make a smoothie with it and add cinnamon. If you dont like yogurt you can have 2 eggs cooked in pam, boiled, basted or poached and 6oz fruit. Use limited salad dressing, not more than 2 Tbsp. Limit your milk intake.
Try it, it works!

I'm sorry Adrian, I didn't realize this was your facebook page when I replied. I thought it was a web blog. I found it when I was looking for natural diurectics (thanks btw)

My Bad!!

August 31, 2012


Starting in May of 2011, I started making better eating choices and was losing from 1 to 3 pounds a month. When I retired at May of 2012 I added walking as an exercise. So far over 15 months I have lost 27 pounds and need to lose at least 23 more to not be overweight. A couple of weeks ago, one of my BP meds was dropped. This week my 2nd BP med was stopped though my cariologist wants me to check it a couple of times a day. I take medication for hypothyroidism and a cholestorol med. I do some kind of physical activity everyday. I walk anywhere from 25 to 70 minutes a day. I had knee surgery for a torn maniscus and do leg exercises three times a week with stretch bands in addition to the walking. I have a problem with retaining water. One BP med had a dieretic in it. Do you have any suggestions on how to deal with the water weight? Any exercise program I do has to take into account that I have a left bundle branch blockage in my heart. Otherwise I'm pretty healthy and feeling better all the time!

August 06, 2012

Adrian bryant

how much water are you drinking and how much salt do you eat daily?

August 06, 2012


I drink 6 to 9 glasses of water every day depending on how hot it is. AZ tends to make people thirsty. Regarding salt, I rarely eat chips. Once a week instead of having Kashi Go Lean cereal, I have 1 or 2 fried eggs with one slice of bacon.

I am 5' 5" and weigh 207 pounds. I have hypothyroidism (Hashimoto's), high cholesterol and I have a really hard time losing weight. I use to exercise 4 days a week, but I have knee problems. Walking is a pretty easy and simple workout for me, so if I need to, I'll start back up. I diet all the time and the most that I have lost is 10 pounds. It might have been water weight though. Is there anything specific that I should do to help me boost my weight loss process? Thanks.

I know carbs can cause you to retain alot of water weight. However I find that it's hard to eliminate carbs from my diet, lots of the foods I have are either brown or white. What if I drank more green tea and cranberry juice while drinking 8 glasses of water everyday? Would that solve my carbs issue in getting rid of water weight?

June 20, 2012

Adrian Bryant

what percentage of carbs is your diet

help me pls....i rly need to lose my weight

June 14, 2012


I am at a dress size 16 I'd like to be down to a dress size 8-10 by July 5th. I know it's soon... I've been skinny and then had to take medication to help with my ADD so I could concentrate in school. My freshmen year of high school I picked out a beautiful black and white prom dress to wear to my now husband's Junior prom- however bc he got sick I was unable to wear it- the rest of my high school year I became heavier (I quit dancing bc it wasn't what it had been for me). The summer of my Junior year I decided I was going to do something about my weight and I joined LA Weight Loss. My Senior year I was small again and happy- I wore that black and white prom dress. Then once I was done going to my consultant and doing my 'diet' myself (continued doing everything) I gained the weight back. I got married August 2009 and was heavy- I was so sad- I did what I could to loose some weight (lost some but not what I wanted). I'm running every morning, drinking water (probably not as much as I should), and watching my portions as I eat. My sister in law is getting married July 7th and I would like to know what I need to do to get to that dress size before then!!!

Wendy Castro

Your advice seems awesome I just requested your DVD I am excited to try it out! I on my own by just watching what I eat have lost 56lbs. I was at 247lbs and now I am at 190. Now I am stuck I am not loosing anymore weight and my exercising has been limited because I have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis so I have had tingling and numbness on my right side. But I want to work out and I feel I can I just don't know what exercises to do. If I do weight exercises I feel fine once I do cardio it aggravates my condition! Can you help me please!

June 01, 2012

Adrian bryant

what has your doctor told you about your condition and exercise

June 01, 2012


The Dr. said to exercise regularly I told her I would feel pins n needles in my legs once I started working out in the treadmill or the bike usually after 10minutes, she said its probably cause I am still healing but to just cool off and it will go away. She hasn't put any limitations on my exercise's

June 01, 2012


I'm 5'4 144 lbs exercise 6 days a week . I drink a lot water but I noticed I'm not urinating enough..only about 4 times per day :( I drink about 80 oz of water a day.I reduced my salt intake already. anyways I wonder that heck is wrong with me ? i cant reduce my carb intake so much because i do a lot cardio (spinning 4 times per week, running 2 time,bootcamp, zumba 2 times per week. ) if i have to reduce my carbs how much carbs i should take without hurting my energy? my goal is 123 lbs and I'm stock on 140's since oct.2011. I already did blood work and everything is fine...its depressing :(

June 01, 2012

Adrian bryant

switch over to this here - this will get you to 123

You could possibly and potentially have a thyroid/parathyroid issue that is causing you to with hold more water or be unable to lose weight in proper amount of time (slow metabolism). Any thyroid issues run in your family? What is your age and current calorie intake?
