I currently weight 165lbs and I'm 5'1. If I work out on the elliptical 5 days a week for 45minutes and eat 1500 calories a day, will I be able to lose 30 pounds in 4months ?

it's possible to lose 30 pounds in 4 months and you are off to a good start but you'll have to make changes along the way in your workout and diet to make surer that happens

I"m 32 years old, and I weigh 240 pounds. I just started working out ( elipitical for 45 min, 40 squats with 10 pound weights and 50 situps) 3 times a week and eating only 1830 calories. If I keep this up how much weight do you think I can loose by April 1st ( today is January 8th).

I work on the Elliptical everyday for around 20-25min but I keep the resistance on zero, I burn 300 calories on average each day. I also have a calorie intake of around 1600-1800 everyday and drink only water and no soda's etc. Do you think I will lose weight?

you will lose weight doing that but how much depends on your current weight and height

So my current weight is 152 lb and my height is 5 ft 6 in.

yes, you should lose the normal 10 pounds every 4-6 weeks

I just stumbled across your site. I like it a lot, it's practical and realistic for me. I'm 39, 5'1" and 158 lbs. I would like to lose 30 lbs total, my short-term goal is 10. I understand the concept of intervals. Lately I have been walking on the treadmill at a 3.4 pace for one hour. I try to keep calories down but so far am eating about 1600-1800 per day, sometimes up to 2000. I think perhaps that number should be more around 1500. I have a Polar heart rate monitor, and it tells me to workout at lower zones, heart rate around 133 mostly for zone 2. I'm not sure I'm doing this right. I have a hard time being consistent but I just got my blood work results back and am worried about my health. I have got to lose this weight to live a long, good life. I would very much appreciate your advice and any tips you have as to eating, snacks, etc. I have a desk job.

i am 5'7" 220lbs 34-28-44, i am at my heaviest ever. my daily intake is 1200 calories a day, i walk 15,000 steps a day, i have beginners ballet 3 days a week for an hour, 45 mins on my elliptical daily, aerobarre when i am not doing ballet. what can i do to get rid of this weight. to be honest the skinniest i'd ever been was 165lbs and i was skin and bones. plus my house has stairs. please help.

You eat too few calories for your weight. To lose weight at 220 pounds without making your body think it is about to be starved, you have to eat a bit more (around 1500 a day),and have that split to at least 5 meals (3 meals and 2 snacks). As for your elliptical and walking exercise, make sure your heart rate remains high through the session (I don't know your age, but the heart rate would definitely be above 120 beats per minute otherwise you are just wasting your time). Also, your beginner's ballet class is not intense aerobic exercise, maybe you should substitute that with more elliptical training.
