Ken asks…

What exercise will make me lose weight without major muscle gain?

I want to drop a stone or more without turning alot of fat into muscle.

I am thinking that swimming & jogging are good but what exercise will help me achieve consistent weight loss without bulking up???


Maricela answers:

If you REALLY WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT AND FAT then you should remember and do this:


1) if you dint have then buy scales!!! That is the first thing to do!!

2) run every 2 days for at least ~30 minutes or/and walk every day at least 5 km!

3) L-Carnitine!!!

L-Carnitine is a nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy. It is produced by the body in the liver and kidneys and stored in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, and sperm. Usually, the body can make all the carnitine it needs. Some people, however, may be deficient in carnitine because their bodies cannot make enough carnitine or transport it into tissues so it can be used. Some other conditions, such as angina or intermittent claudication, can also cause insufficient carnitine in the body, as can some medications.L-Carnitine is made in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. It increases the use of fat as an energy source by transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are ‘burned’ to release energy for body functions. It is available in several different forms including propionyl-L-carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine. Propionyl-L-carnitine, through its enhancement of metabolism has been proven to prevent ischemia-induced heart dysfunction, and acetyl-L-carnitine has been suggested to delay the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. L-carnitine is found naturally in avocados, breast milk, dairy products, red meats (namely lamb and beef), and tempeh (fermented soybean product).

L-carnitine should be taken one hour before you will exercise! (Also you can take L-carnitine with meals or 1 to 1-1/2 hours after meals!)

L-Carnitine boosts energy by stimulating the body’s burning of tryglycerides as fuel, and sparing the supply of glycogen stored in the liver for heavier exertion. During exercise, the body will burn fat at a rate of 75-80% of maximum exertion, thus less glycogen from carbohydrates is burned. L-carnitine
allows the body to burn more fat, save more glycogen, and ultimately boost stamina and endurance. By providing more fat to the muscles, carnitine makes accessible an otherwise unavailable energy source.


5) you MUST change your diet!! Start to use products with less fat, less carbohydrates! Start count your calories! Do not eat more than ~1500 per day and if you feel that you can reduce this number then do it!

Because if you will use L-Carnitine – you will get calories from your body fat too!! So better is to eat 2kg fruits then 1 cheeseburger…
And drink more and more water!! REMEMBER – NO rice, NO pasta, NO pork, NO mayonnaise, NO sweets, NO candies, NO alcohol!!!!!
MORE fruits, vegetables!!!

AND DO NOT EAT AFTER ~8:00PM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6) also you should use some fat-burner! I had tried many of them but only one worked for me as fast as I wanted to! It was Lipo-6! I lost ~80 pounds in 3 months! No starvation!! Only LESS CALORIES + Lipo-6 + L-Carnitine + EVERYDAY RUN (FAST WALK) = SUCCESS!!!

I do not know if any store carry Lipo-6 but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here

It worked for me and my wife!

And this method is working for my friends too!!

Just try it and I guarantee you 100% that you will lose wight!!!

Good luck!!!

Donna asks…

Would walking 4 miles a week make a difference?

I am trying to save gas money, so I would be taking the bus home from work 2 days a week. The bus stop is 2 miles from my home, so I also thought I would be getting in a little bit more walking. I get off at 7am, from working a graveyard. I know running/jogging would be better. But I am pretty sure I will only be walking 🙂

Would this 4 miles have a positive result in my weight loss?
I also try and eat healthy, and I do work out.

Maricela answers:

Absolutely. Any activity is better than none.

Mandy asks…

Why are my thighs getting bigger from my workout?

I’ve been exercising for a little over a month now. I’m seeing results, a little weight loss in my tummy, legs, and breasts(unfortunately). But my thighs feel bigger, I know doing squats makes the muscles larger, but I don’t do them everyday….I mostly walk(fast pace), jog, and run a bit. Is that causing the bulk effect? Is it better for me to walk instead of jogging or running?

Maricela answers:

I believe your thighs are getting bigger because you are gaining muscle in that area, as a result of exercise like the said. Which is good because muscle burns calories and increases your metabolism. If you don’t like the bulk I am not sure as to what you could do – maybe stop exercising, using your legs as much. But if you are losing weight, I don’t see the problem. You will probably end up losing adipose tissue in your thigh area eventually, making that area appear smaller.

Mark asks…

I want to know what specific exercises can help my weight loss.. Not about diet, ONLY exercises?

I am 100 lbs overweight and I have been watching my diet (and doing well) So What I want to know is what exercises should I do to help my weight loss.

Right now I walk/jog.

Maricela answers:

Swimming, if you have access to a pool with a lifeguard. It is one of the few exercises that works every muscle in your body. It is also extremely low impact, so the extra 100 lbs. Your carrying right now won’t hurt your joints too much.

Rowing is also another exercise that is intense and works out many muscles in your body. However, it is very easy to do improperly, so unless you have a trainer around, just don’t do it. It’s just too easy to hurt yourself.

An aerobics class is one of the best things you can get involved in. It is difficult, but there are different class levels, so if your new, you won’t be alone. It also provides a social structure that is beneficial to many people when exercising. After all, exercise doesn’t always feel good, and having the emotional support of the people you work out with is always a big factor in sticking with any plan.

Always, always, always… Safety first! And good luck with your diet/exercise!

Steven asks…

Is it possible for a 43 yr old woman to be toned?

I mean I’ve been doing strength training (weights) for about 6 weeks now (2-3x per week) and I swear I feel like I have absolutely no muscle tone. I know I am working hard because I sweat and the next day I am sore. Am I not eating enough protein? Should I eat protein right after or before a strength workout? I’ve never had any muscle tone so maybe I should just forget about it. I do feel great and on top of the workouts I’ve been walking/jogging 2-3 times per week. No significant weight loss either. Maybe I’m just at an age where I am fighting my hormones, and they’re winning. I have some belly fat that just can’t get rid of. I weigh 140 lbs and I’m 5’2″ and I have a cholesteral level of 200+. Can someone refer me to a good website or help me please??

Maricela answers:

Changing you body takes time. More than 6 weeks. I think the look you want has as much to do with overall health as it does with toned muscle. First you have to have fairly low body fat so you can even see the muscle. 43 certainly is not to old but genetics does play a significant role in your body’s build and ability to put on and tone muscle. So, I would suggest starting a healthy diet and work out schedule you can live with for years. You will put on muscle, loose fat, and tone up some. However you may never look like the girls on Bay Watch. The big thing is you will look and feel much better. You are facing the major problem with new diets or workout routines, not seeing enough results quickly so people give up. Really, the best advice anyone can give you is set up a healthy diet and workout that you can do for years and then just stick to it. Results will follow.
