Why do I still have belly fat after losing all this weight?

When you still have belly fat after losing any amount of weight, you're still on the right track and you just need to keep doing what you've been doing to lose weight all over your body.

Don't stay on Very Low Calorie Diets (VLCD) for too long because…

You should only use a VLCD for a weight loss emergency so…

You should also look at…


Does hCG really work & Does hCG Promote long term weight loss?

Yes but…

After you've done some simple research and found out for yourself that you're only eating 500 calories a day while on the hCG diet then your common sense will tell you that you'll lose weight fast basically by eating next to nothing everyday and that goes right into your next question…

Does hCG Promote long term weight loss?

NO & Think about this…

How long can you continually eat 500 calories a day and/or afford the hCG and what's worse is…

If you do lose a lot of weight using hCG then you'll quickly gain back all the weight you lost and probably more after you've finished the hCG Diet (See why Very Low Calorie Diets don't work for everybody) and…

Even some studies show that hCG does not work…

You should also look at…


Do body wraps work for weight loss and to lose inches?

Yes in the short term and NO in the long term so…


4 reasons why the Alli Diet Pill won't help you lose weight

  1. Alli has too many disgusting side effects

    If you don't know already… Alli's side effects include frequent and hard to control stools, oily anal discharge, diarrhea, and uncontrollable bowel movements so…

    You have an easy choice to make… You can shit in your pants all day or lose only 1-2 pounds a week which you can do without Alli.
  2. Studies show that people only lost a measly 1-2 pounds a week with Alli

    This can easily be done without Alli.  Just save your money and go on a simple fat loss plan to lose 1-2 pounds a week. 
  3. You have to go on a low-fat diet

    To prevent disgusting side effects (see reason #1) the makers of Alli say you have to go on a low-fat diet which isn't bad but…  Going on the low fat diet alone is what causes you to lose weight in the first place (not Alli) but…

    I guess if the fear of shitting in your pants (or having uncontrollable bowel movements) all day is enough to make you stop eating unhealthy fatty foods then I guess Alli is okay.
  4. Dr. James Anderson, head of the UK College of Medicine Metabolic Research Group, said this about Alli…

    "First of all, the drug doesn't work unless you have a certain amount of fat in your diet, Most people that are on low-fat diets are eating a lot of carbohydrates."

    "Well, Alli doesn't block carbohydrates. On the other-hand, if you are eating a lot of fat in your diet, you're going to end up saying to yourself, 'I thought I was already toilet trained' because 25 percent of the people use this drug get oily spotting."

Will Sit-ups & Crunches flatten my stomach and get rid of belly fat?

No.

Sit-ups, Crunches and other ab exercises do NOTHING at all to burn belly fat as confirmed by this study where people did Ab exercises 5 days a week for 6 weeks with no loss of belly fat or body fat.

Even if you believe the claim that it takes 25000 crunches to lose 1 pound of fat it would take you almost a month to lose 1 pound and that's if you did 1000 crunches a day!

How much weight can you lose in a month or a week?

You should reasonably expect to lose 8-to-10 pounds every 4-to-6 weeks if you lose weight the right way by going on a permanent weight loss plan like these here and…

Depending on how overweight you are along with these other weight loss factors… You may lose MORE or less than 8-to-10 pounds every 4-to-6 weeks and you could also end up losing 5-to-10 pounds in your first week on a weight los plan (go here to see why) but…

You will not always lose 10 pounds every 4-to-6 weeks because…

Every time you lose 10-to-20 pounds your weight loss is going to get slower & slower unless you find a ways to break out of your weight loss plateau and…

Going from 200-to-140 pounds is easier (or takes longer) than going from 140-to-120 so…

As you get slimmer…

You could lose 20 pounds in 1 week by…

Going on a fad diet just like when Beyonce lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks using the master cleanse diet but when you lose over 1-to-3 pounds a week then your chances of gaining the weight back you lost are very high so overall…

It's best to make a goal to lose 10 pounds every 4-to-6 weeks &…

You should also look at…


Is there a way I can really lose 10 pounds in 1 week?

The true answer is that you really can't unless you are really overweight and/or…

You may lose 5-to-10 pounds in your first week of starting a weight loss program but…

You can go on some extreme diet like the master cleanse where you eat virtually nothing to lose 10 lbs. fast but in the end you'll probably gain back all the weight you lost (see why) so instead of 10 pounds a week…

You need to focus on 1-to-2 pounds of permanent fat loss per week because…

If you do quickly lose 10 pounds it'll be a combination of FAT Loss + water weight + colon cleansing and…

Make sure that you have a weight loss emergency like an upcoming wedding or something where you have to lose weight fast and if you don't have a weight loss emergency…

Take your time and lose weight at a pace of 1-to-3 pounds of FAT per week permanently so you'll lose weight and never gain any fat back and…

You should also look at…


Why did I lose 5 lbs. my 1st week & then only 1-to-2 lbs. per week afterwards?

The reason why you lost a lot of weight the first 2-to-3 weeks on your weight loss program is because…

You may go back to losing 1-to-3 pounds of fat per week but depending on how overweight you are (or the higher your body fat percentage is…)

You may still lose more than 5 pounds of FAT per week on any weight loss plan but usually…

Losing anything over 5 pounds in your first week is probably due to fat loss, water weight & colon cleansing and…

You should also look at…


Will I gain back the weight I lost once I go off my weight loss program?

The answer to that question mainly depends on you so…

Whether you gain all the weight you lost back or not also depends on how you lost the weight in the first place so…

If you went on a fad diet or a very low calorie diet then chances are very high that you will gain back all the weight you lost and more simply because it's hard for you to stick to these fad diets or Very Low Calorie Diets for extended periods of time but…

To maintain your weight…

You should also look at…


Will I gain weight if I eat before bed?

NO & here is why…

You gain weight by eating too many calories along with not being active (or being lazy) so basically…

Gaining weight (along with maintaining & losing weight) is all based on how many total calories you eat & NOT WHEN YOU EAT but…

What about eating carbs late after 6pm?

Same answer as above ↑ so remember…

Weight loss, weight gain and maintaining your weight is all about how much you eat and not when, where, or what you eat (maybe with the slight exception of simple carbs) and…

You should also look at…


Will skipping meals make me fat?

The quick answer is no and skipping meals every once in a while is not going to make you gain fat or not lose weight and…

Even if you constantly skip meals and/or eat an extremely low amount of calories you still will not gain any fat because…

The only way you'll gain weight is if you eat too much along with being very lazy so…

It doesn't matter WHEN you eat or HOW many meals you skip.

You should also look at…


Does eating too many carbs make me fat?

The answer is YES if…

You eat too many simple carbs like snacks, deserts, sodas or any of the other bad foods for weight loss because…

Simple or processed carbs make your blood sugar or energy levels go up quickly and after that… Your blood sugar or energy levels quickly go back down making you crave for more and more simple carbs and…

It's this constant craving of simple carbs (or bad foods) that cause you to eat too many calories making you gain weight but…

If you had enough self control and you could limit the amount of bad foods you eat and still stay within the limited amount of calories you need to eat to lose weight then…

You could possibly lose weight just eating mainly carbs but of course… I highly recommend that you do not eat a diet of mainly simple carbs due to the simple fact that…

Simple carbs are more easily converted to fat in the body than complex carbs, lean proteins and fats but on the other hand…

Eating too many carbs will not make you fat if…

You eat mostly complex or unprocessed carbs like fruits & veggies, oatmeal and brown rice or any of the other 200+ weight loss foods here because…

Complex carbs fill you up quickly on less calories making you feel full for longer periods of time and unlike simple carbs…

Complex carbs keeps your blood sugar or energy levels steady for much longer periods of time preventing any of the energy crashes and cravings that come from simple carbs but…

The major answer to the carb question is NO because…

Only eating too many calories along with being lazy or inactive makes you fat but hopefully… After reading this you will not eat as many simple carbs to prevent potential weight gains while eating more complex carbs to lose weight.

You should also look at…


Will protein shakes make me fat?

NO Because…

The only way you can gain weight is by eating TOO MUCH or by eating too many calories along with being very inactive so for example…

If you only needed to eat 2000 calories a day to maintain your weight then you would have to eat over 2000 calories worth of protein shakes to gain weight just from drinking protein shakes so…

You need to eat more calories than you need to maintain your weight to actually gain weight but…

Protein shakes & supplements can be used on a muscle mass gaining diet or a diet to gain weight & get curves to help you gain weight and/or muscle mass while on those plans but on the other hand…

Protein shakes & supplements or just protein in general can be used to help you lose weight while on a weight loss diet plan and…

You should also look at…


Will eating fat make me fat &… Will a low fat diet help me lose weight faster?

NO & NO because…

Only eating too many calories and being very lazy (or inactive) makes you fat and…

A low fat diet will not necessarily make you lose weight and only eating the right amount of total calories will so…

You can still be on a high fat diet and still lose weight as long as you are eating the right amount of total calories to lose weight – It's just that fat has twice as many calories per gram than carbs and protein (fat has 9 calories per gram while carbs and protein only has 4 calories per gram) so basically…

You can't eat many fats before going over your total calorie limit to lose weight &…

As for your health you want to avoid both saturated and transunsaturated fats as much as possible while including more of these good fats that actually burn fat in your diet.

You should also look at…


What & When should I eat before & after I exercise to lose weight?

Before you workout it's best to eat a normal balanced meal that includes complex carbs, lean proteins and fats so…

You can also workout first thing in the morning before breakfast (or before your first meal of the day) on an empty stomach - see how to burn fat faster in the morning so if you're working out twice a day…

If you are eating 4-to-6 smaller meals a day then you can schedule in your workouts 45-to-90 minutes before and after your workouts or…

If you are eating 3-to-4 larger meals a day then you may want to eat your larger meals about 1-to-2 hours before your workouts to prevent cramping but …

Eating before you workout is really only necessary if you feel you may end up lacking energy or getting hungry while you workout and usually if you are on a weight loss diet anyway… Your meals will always probably come within 1-to-2 hours of your workouts but…

You can easily take care of any hunger and energy problems simply by taking a fat burner 30-to-60 minutes before you workout to give you more energy and kill any hunger cravings you might get while working out.

Women: 3 reasons why weights won't make you bulky like a man…

  1. As a woman you don't have nearly the same amount of testosterone as men do to build bigger bulkier muscles and usually…
  2. Most women are on weight loss diets while lifting weights and these types of diets will not help you gain large amounts of muscle mass and…
  3. Even if you are eating a normal amount of calories while you lift weights you still won't gain lots of muscle mass due to the fact that you need to eat a lot more than normal to gain lots of muscle mass.

You should also look at…


What workouts help you lose weight the fastest?

Intervals or any high intensity training (or HIT) are the types of workouts that will help you burn fat the fastest because…

Intervals & high intensity training helps you burn the most calories (or fat) during and after your workout because of the after burn effect (see how the after burn effect increase your metabolism) and…

Intervals, HIT or anything on a level 7 on a 1-to-10 scale with 10 being very intense will absolutely help you burn fat the fastest but any high intensity workout should only be done 3-to-4 times a week 1-to-2 times a day for only 10-to-40 minutes (watch 8 rules for losing 2-to-4 pounds every week with intervals) and…

If you are not in shape or just too lazy to do Intervals & high intensity training then you can still lose weight fast doing lower intensity activities but just not as fast as you would if your workout plan consisted mainly of Intervals & high intensity training.

You should also look at…


Do I do Cardio or weights first?

When you're trying to lose weight or burn fat it really does not matter what order you do your workouts in to lose weight but…

Here's 2 reasons why you should do your weight training first…

  1. If you do your cardio or interval workout first your muscles may be too exhausted for you to get in a quality weight training workout to help you tone up or build muscle and…
  2. Working out with weights first helps you burn off most of your stored muscle glycogen (or carbs) for energy so when you do get ready to do your cardio or interval workout you'll burn a much higher percentage of fat

You should also look at…


Is it better to use free weights or machines?

Neither is better than the other and both can be used to build a better looking body and doing one over the other is not going to give you faster results.

Getting a better looking body with weight training is done by you progressively using heavier weights (more resistance), doing more reps and/or sets each time you work out with weights so…

Using free weights or machines will help you get the body you want.

You should also look at…


How often should I change up my exercise routine?

You generally want to do a different exercise or make changes to your current routine every 4-to-6 weeks to prevent YOU & YOUR body from getting used to the same thing so you can keep getting the results you want but…

You don't have to make changes and this is especially true if you keep getting the same results week after week with your current routine and…

Everybody is different so for example… you may lose 100 pounds doing the same bike workout everyday while your friend may need to continually make changes every 4-to-6 weeks by doing a different workout or by making the bike workout more intense to lose 100 pounds.

You should also look at…


What is the best piece of cardio equipment to use to lose weight?

Should I use a treadmill, elliptical, stepper or etc.?

It does not matter what cardio machine you use because they will all help you lose weight but…

The best one that YOU should use is….

You MAY need to switch the cardio machine you're using, the weight loss activity you're doing or even your entire weight loss workout every 4-to-6 weeks so you can prevent YOU & YOUR body from getting used to the same workout so you can keep losing weight but…

If you are limited to using only 1 piece of cardio equipment or if you really like the cardio machine you are using then you definitely want to gradually make your workout more intense if you want to keep losing weight using the same piece of cardio equipment (See #1-thru-6 on how to lose weight faster)

You should also look at…


Does muscle turn into fat if I stop working out?

No…

Your muscles may shrink or atrophy from inactivity if you stop working out for a long period of time and it's biochemically impossible for your muscles to turn into fat and vice versa…

Fat does not turn into muscle because you workout and fat can only be burned off with diet and exercise and you can only gain fat when you eat too much combined with being too lazy.

You should also look at…


Should I lose weight 1st before lifting weights?

NO &…

It is perfectly fine to lift weights to tone up if you're a woman or build more muscle if you're a guy as you lose weight since building muscle increases your metabolism making you burn fat faster but…

Here is 2 things you should know if you are going to lose weight and build muscle at the same time…

  1. As you lose weight and gain muscle you are going to look better but when you step on a scale you may see that you either lost weight, lost very little weight or may even gained weight simply because you have lost the UGLY body fat and gained SEXIER muscle so in that case…

    Don't freak out because when you look in the mirror you will see that you'll look much better naked and…
  2. Don't expect to "see" any results from lifting weights until you have lost enough weight because doing stomach exercises, thigh exercises and etc. will not help you lose fat from those specific areas and…

    To lose fat you mainly need to focus on your diet and exercise plan and once you lose the fat… You can "see" the results from lifting weights where you have built more muscle or toned up.
