Maricela answers:

Try the tips below
1)The very first thing u should keep in your mind and that is the extra weight u put on didn’t come in overnight so it is not possible and also unrealistic to take it off quickly. You have to show patience. Please remember learning to eat well and exercise is the only solution to long-term weight loss.
2)The 2nd important thing is that your body weight is controlled by the number of calories you eat and the number of calories you use each day. So, if you consume fewer calories than you burn, you will lose weight. You can do this by becoming more physically active or by eating less.
3)The 3rd important thing is never skip ur meal or go to a crash diet. Don’t ever try to starve urself. It is very important to understand that when you skip a meal or go on a crash diet, the result is that it slows your metabolism to conserve your energy. And when you lose weight too quickly for a few days, your body thinks it is threatened with starvation and goes into survival mode. It fights to conserve your fat stores. There fore keep in mind never try to skip ur meal, especially breakfast and always try to take food on time
4)Before starting any type of diet, weight yourself and note ur whole body measurement in a dairy. Then after every week weigh your self again and compare with earlier measurements and see how much weight u r losing. Record a goal that you can reach in one month that is 4 to 8 pounds less than you weigh now. Set a goal you know you can achieve.
Now some tips how to set ur diet plan.
5)Start taking your food with out any oil. Try to use boiled/steamed vegetables, meat, and lot of salad. U can eat fruits too and boiled/steamed chicken or red meat too but no pork. Please note and put it in ur mind that nothing fried or oily.
6)Try to chew ur every food for atleast 20 times. And then swallow it into ur stomach.
7)No Potato Please. It is strictly forbidden during this diet
8)No Junk Food Please.
9)Drink at least 3 ltr of water daily. Make ur habit to drink water as much as u can. Rather take a bottle of water with you all the time, when you feel starving, drink it as much as u can.
10)Make you habit to use brown bread.
11)use skimmed and low fat milk and yogurt
12)Sugar is strictly forbidden in this diet plan.
13)First try to avoid any type of soft drink but if u really wants to taste some thing sweet then drink any soft drink (but not cola), but just one glass once in a week.
14)Eat at least once in a day a vegetable soap or Thai soup ( as ur dinner or lunch), as much as u can but no corn flour in it.
15)Just look at your food portion. It is much better to eat several small meals a day (like 5-6 healthy meals a day) than eat either one or two or three huge meal a day.
16) The most important factor in any weight loss plan is how many calories you consume each day,and eating too few is the most common mistake. Divide ur diet into 5-6 healthy meals a day (1 plate size only)
17)one bowl of oatmeal can be taken as a break fast
18)No hard drink of any type is allowed in this diet.
19)Smoking strictly forbidden in this diet
20)Watch out ur every drink and every single piece of ur food. Stay away from fatty foods, junk foods, synthetic foods, foods with preservatives and too much carbohydrate. Don’t try to take foods that are made of white flour for example white bread, cakes, pasta etc and food contain sugar such as cookies, ice cream, candy etc.
21)Remember after every 15 days you can take once in a while with a little treat any thing u like. But remember just a small portion. For example one small personal pizza or one small burger or small pastry.
22)Try to adopt some healthy timing. Early to rise and early to bed. No late sittings.
23)People usually want Quick and Easy result, we all are impatient. You have to be patient in terms of your weight loss and never give up. Always keep in mind that slow and steady win the race.
24)At least take this diet for 3 to 6 months and when u feel that u have achieved your desired weight then make this is as a Life Style change for you entire life. Remember do not focus on just losing weight; try to concentrate on diet plan forever so that you will never have to loose weight again. But occasionally u can take other junk food too.
25) You have to keep in mind that above plan is a not a quick thin program. Don’t try to deceive ur body. It will destroy your metabolism and in the future the proportion of gaining weight is much higher and easier than today.
26)Never ever go for any type of Diet pills or any drug which claim that it will reduce the weight quickly. Taking Diet pills will kill u.
27) Exercise: Rule-of -Thumb: remember the formula for weight loss and that is Diet= 70% Exercise= 30%. The best indoor exercise machine is tread mill. Run on tread mill for at least 30 mnts daily. And if you don’t have this facility then best indoor Exercise is skipping.

Maria asks…

How can I become motivated to work out with depression?

I’m very depressed, and I’ve gained some weight from not doing much and over eating, but I want to lose it and tone up.

Do you have any advice on how to motivate myself to do it? I know there’s probably not much more than just getting up and starting, and keeping my goal in mind, but can you think of anything else I could try?

Thank you.

How to motivate yourself to exercise.

1. Do it with a friend.
Statistics tell us that people who exercise with a friend are more
successful at exercising consistently. You can keep each other
accountable. Knowing that someone is waiting for you to exercise with
them can be great motivation to show up and get it done!
2. Do exercising which you enjoy. For example, you find running
boring. You can replace it with any other cardio activity: roller
blading, playing badminton, tennis, bicycling burn a lot of
calories, and you feel more like you are having fun, than like you are
punishing yourself for that extra doughnut.
3. Choose music you like, dynamic and vigourous, to make it more
pleasant.
4. Check regularly with your clothes, see how they become bulkier,
whoop from joy, photograph the progress and create a photo gallery on
your computer.
5. Set fitness goals, independent on weight loss. For example, say to
yourself “Next time, I will run quicker, and it will take me only ten
minutes to do so”, or such. You will feel like a real athlete,
preparing for a big day. Keep a journal of your athletic achievements.
6. Compete. Enrol into a local amateur tennis competition, for
example. This way, you will have a goal to achieve, which is different
from your weight loss, and you will have people to impress and you
will have to be adequate, so you’ll try harder.
7. Reward yourself (but not with food, you will end eating more than
you burned, and will become disillusioned quickly). Invent a set of
rules for yourself, for example: every time I am not feeling like
exercising, but do it, I will put 1 dollar in my piggy bank, every
time I achieve this or that goal – three. At the end of the month go
out and buy yourself the most impractical things you were craving but
denying yourself with this money.
8. Do not wait for some big moment or big day to start exercising.
There are spaces in your daily schedule when you procrastinate – fill
them with activities. For example, instead of sitting on the couch,
saying “It does not matter, I am going to the gym the next day”, get
off and do a series of push ups, or skip with the skipping rope (buy
it for one dollar in one dollar store), walk down the stairs at work
or around the block at your lunch break. This way, you are exercising,
fighting boredom, and do not have to sweat in the gym for hours
afterwards. This random 7-10 minutes activities will roll at the end
of the day into a full gym session!
9. Use “I will show them all” technique (sparingly). Think about the
mean people who teased you, the girl who refused to go out with you, a
sneering sales person in the clothes shop, imagine them all, and “show
them” – run fast, kick high, and end being and feeling gorgeous!

Sorry, but there is the limit set to answers space. I have no space left to talk about
cravings. You should consider asking about them separately.

Donna asks…

How do you motivate yourself to get out of bed and get to the gym early in the morning?

I am planning to start at 8 in the morning, and considering that I am a night owl and I have school and work to think about this is a pretty early time for me. I plan on going every day at that time early before school and work take hold. Usually I’ll go to work and school and try to work out after that but I usually get too tired to go. Any tips and pointers? I’d like to make this a regular habit.
