The Top 8 ways to see how fast you can lose weight…

1. The fatter you are = The quicker you'll lose weight.

A fatter person will lose weight FASTER than a lighter person doing the same weight loss activity for the same amount of time simply because more calories are burned (takes more energy) to move a heavier person and also - believe it or not…

A fatter person has a higher metabolism than a lighter person (see #3 here for why that is) so when fatter people go on a diet…

Their metabolism's will burn off more of their stored fat faster than a lighter person so…

A fatter person may lose 5-to-10 pounds in their first week on a weight loss plan while a normal weight or not so over weight person may only lose 2-to-5 pounds in their first week.

2. The more active you are = the quicker you'll lose weight.

Your ability to recover & how much rest you need will all affect how intense, how long, how many times a week and how many times a day you can workout and…

3. How much you eat

The more you eat UNDER the amount of calories you need to maintain your weight will determine how fast you lose weight but…

You should never eat under 1000-to-1200 calories since…

A real fat person can lose lots of fat faster without losing much muscle than a leaner person on a VLCD of under 1000-to-12000 calories since they have lots of stored fat on their bodies.

4. How bad your eating habits were before starting a weight loss plan

If you had bad eating habits or if you ate foods that made you gain weight before you started a weight loss diet plan

You'll lose a lot of weight faster than someone who was eating healthier because your body will be flushing out pounds of excess waste, toxins and water weight you gained from your bad eating habits and usually…

After you lose up to 10 pounds in your first week after coming off your bad habits you can expect your weight loss rate to go back to normal.

5. The more Stressed you are = The slower you'll lose weight

Cortisol is a hormone released in your body when stress levels are high telling your brain "you're hungry and you need to eat more to combat all this stress" and…

The more stressed you are = the more hungry you are making it harder for you to stick to your weight loss plan causing you to eat too much and lose weight slower so See 100 ways to lower stress here

6. How many Carbs & Proteins you eat

You'll lose weight faster if you eat less carbs and that's a good thing for you if you can realistically maintain a low-carb diet for a long time but…

You may not be able to maintain a low-carb/high-protein diet for a long time before you gain back all the weight you lost so it's best that your diet is 40-to-60% carbs, 30-to-40% protein and the rest made up of healthy fats.

7. What you eat and how often you cheat on your diet

You'll lose weight faster eating more of these weight loss foods and less of these bad foods plus…

The more strict you are with your diet = the faster you'll lose weight than if you were cheating on your diet too much but see how to cheat on your diet and still lose weight.

8. How motivated you are

The more motivated you are = the quicker you'll lose weight so See how to get motivated to lose weight fast and…

I'm 28 5'5 230. Started working out last week and lost 10 pounds. I plan on going to the gym 4-5 times a week. I run a mile and a half for warm up, do chest and arms on machines. Then do abs on machine. Then another mile and a half before I leave
Is there a better work out program for me? I want to lose weight but keep muscle. Im also on a juice detox.

I am an 41 year old woman who weighs 180 lbs trying to lose 40 lbs. I eat healthy and track everything in my loseit.com app. I am currently eating 1500 calories, drink plenty of water, work out 4 to 5 times a week. Circuit training 30 minutes and cardio 30 to 45 minutes. I see a difference in mirror not scale and I have been working out 9 weeks. What am I doing wrong????

seems like nothing wrong if the mirror proves otherwise. see this first

I am 49 years old, am a nutritionist so I eat always well (never go out and cook everything myself too), I started nursing school last summer and I cannot lose weight for anything. I have been in a Zumba class since April and even bike 7 miles to get there and back three days a week. Not one pound was lost and I eat around 1000 calories a day. I am 5'3" and am 125 lbs. I want and need to be 115 lbs.

I also tend to hold in water weight. I've had high blood pressure since my teens and at times, I hold in water weight that accumulates over a period of years. The last time this happened, it was 10 years ago. The doctor put me on medication and I safely lost 4 lbs of water weight a month. I got down to 113 lbs eating well. This time, the stress of school is probably affecting this but I would prefer natural supplements to do the same thing. I've done the lemonade cleanse twice a year and still do not lose weight. Can you please recommend a plan for me and appropriate supplements? I found that caffeine makes me retain water. I wish it did not.

Thank you!
Johanne

I'm a 48 year old male, 5'10" and weigh 245. I am fairly active with 3, 50 minute gym sessions a week with a trainer and at least 3 hours of aerobic sessions (running, biking, elliptical, x-country skiing) per week. I have been doing this intensity for about 2 years. I started this journey five years ago at 275 lbs. My weight has been as low as 215 but seems to gravitate back to the 245. I am frustrated! I need a new plan and ideas.

I am 20 years old, 400 pounds and I have been walking 2 miles every morning for the past week and eating 2700 calories a day, but I have yet to lose any weight? Is this normal? Shouldn't I be losing a lot more weight than that since I'm so heavy? It's pretty discouraging. I use a pedometer on my phone and I have one that I bought and I'm definitely getting 2 miles in on the mornings that I work out. I need help. I don't mind exercise, it's hard but I'm determined. But, I just don't know what to think right now. Can you help?

May 26, 2014

Adrian Bryant

you've been doing this just for one week?

Go on a water fast. I gaurantee that you will lose so more weight than u can even imagine. Do a one one week challenge at first and den do a 10 day challenge and last do a 21 day challenge. But after u finish ur fast remember to stick to your veg diet and hit the gym or you can do some cardio at home itself.

I'm a female at 5'6", 247lbs and 2 months from 48 years of age. I have started working out March 24th and I play tennis once to twice a week and exercise on stationary bike 3 to 4 times a week interval training for 20 minutes. I have only lost 7 lbs so far; what am I doing wrong. I track my cal intake with myfitnesspal and am under 1800 calories always and some days 200 less. Am I not doing enough or is my exercise routine getting too routine? I feel my muscles getting pumped and I have stamina I didn't have 3 months ago. Walking for 5 minutes would get me so winded that I couldn't speak; but now I cool down in about 2 mins...I'm still sweating but my breathing is back to normal. Can you tell me if I'm on the right track or do I need to do more?

Hi, I'm 47, 5'5, and I weigh 191 pounds. I just gained the extra 41 pounds last year. I have tried everything, even the Garcininia Cambogia with 60% HCA which did nothing for me. I have a huge problem, I don't like the taste of water which I know is one of my downfalls, another one is I don't eat three meals a day. I sometimes only eat once a day. Why I gained the weight I do not know because I don't eat that much. I do have a treadmill and I find myself having to force myself on it because I get so bored with it. The workouts that are on the machine are too extreme for me. What do you recommend for me?

I'm 32 soon to be 33 in May. I'm 230 lbs and 5'6. BMI is 37. I jog every other day and do HIIT 4 times a week for 45 minutes. I'm not losing weight. When I started I was 227 lbs and gained 3 lbs. I'm assuming it may be muscle I'm gaining. I've been doing these workouts for 6 wks now and I'm wondering if I'm doing anything wrong because I'm not losing weight. I also am on a 1,810 calories. Before I was on 1,200 calories but felt fatigued. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Help please. :)

February 12, 2014

Adrian Bryant

how are you tracking your calories?

February 13, 2014

Toni

Yes I am. I'm using myfitnesspal.com

February 15, 2014

Adrian Bryant

Instead of going for just ONE calorie number. try a range of 1200-to-1800 and you may want to eat less on your non-HIIT days but can you describe your HIIT workouts a little more?

February 16, 2014

Toni

I'm doing Insanity and jogging.

I'm an Elite Cyclist. 161 lbs, 5'11" I train 24 hours a week right now as training is about all I am doing right now.

I have been searching for some information. hoping you can help me.

My BMR is roughly 2500-2800 Cal. I train with a power meter so Calories burned during activities is accurate.

My question is, if I burn 3800 cal during a 4.5 hr ride. Should I stick to the max 1000 cal restriction per day or could I restrict less and lose weight faster as long as I am hitting my BMR and taking in enough food to effectively complete my workout?

February 02, 2014

Adrian Bryant

as far as how much you can eat to lose weight mainly depends on how low can you go without severely starving yourself or constsntly thinking about food

I work out once a week on the elliptical for 30 mins and every night I do lunges & planks for about 10mins.Anything will help, I lack time in my schedule.
Thanks in advance.
