Ken asks…

How many calories should a 170 lbs. 13 year old eat each day to lose weight fast?

I’m 13 and weigh around 170 pounds. I’m trying to lose weight, but it just takes to long. I have patience, but still want better and quicker results. How many calories should I intake each day to quicken my results for weight loss?

Maricela answers:

Allright. Go on Google, or Bing, and search for a Calorie Calculator. Type in your specifications and it should tell you your calories needed per day. It should be about 2000, or a bit over. Cut this amount by upto 500.

If you want to loose weight even quicker add some excersicse.

You should notice good results within a few weeks – a month.

Paul asks…

When on a vegan diet, do you need to count calories to loose weight?

I heard that vegans stay naturally thin without counting calories because they dont have lots of tokins or bad foods (cause most non animal product foods are healthy).

So, if Im trying to loose weight on a vegan diet, do I really need to count calories? (If so, how many should I have daily?)

Thanks :]

PS) *Im not going vegan strictly too loose weight, Im going for animal rights and general health reasons, weight loss is just an added bonus!

Maricela answers:

Yes, you still need to count calories. There’s plenty of ways to be vegan and still consume empty calories, and even too much of a good thing can make you gain weight. The good news is that if you’re eating vegetables, it’ll take a lot more food to get up to your daily calorie quota than if you were eating meat and dairy, so you’ll be able to eat more and still lose weight.

You should look up how many calories you need based on your gender, height, weight, activity level, and how much you want to lose.

Here’s a link to the Mayo Clinic’s calorie calculator:

Hope that helps!

Lizzie asks…

How many calories should I be eating with daily yoga?

I do two hours of yinyasa flow every day and two hours of gymnastics per week. Before the yoga, I ate 1,800 calories. Should I up the amount I eat? I’m getting different answers from online calculators. Thank you! P.S. I’m looking for how much I should eat for weight loss.
I read that vinyasa flow burns about 500 calories per hour.
Oops, sorry about that.
I’m 5 1” and 140 pounds. I’m recovering from multiple eating disorders, so it’s a little high.

Maricela answers:

You should aim to have they same amount of calories each day. Regardless of how many hours yoga or gymnastics you do. Although, your weight, height and age is needed to calculate the recommended amount of calories per day.

Nancy asks…

How do you figure out the percentage of body weight lost after losing 13 pounds?

Weird question, I know. But some employees at work are doing a little weightloss challenge. The person who loses the most “percentage” after 6 weeks wins. So far, everyone has lost 13 pounds each. They all understand that the person who started with the lowest weight is ahead of the percentage game so far, but now it’s game on!! They only have a week and a half left … one of the girls weighed 216, one weighed 180 and the other weighed 170. How can they calculate how much percentage of weight they’ve actually lost? Hope you can help.
PS – if you have something rude or ignorant to say, don’t bother replying.
What I meant, is take for example the 180 pound person – she lost 13 pounds. How much would that 13 pounds work out to be percentage-wise? Like how much percentage of her body weight did she lose? How much did the others lose? Can you tell I totally suck at math? lol
Mama Gretch, you rock! Thanks for not only answering my question, but figuring out everything for me as well. Now I get it, and will pass the info on.
Tried to chose your answer as the best one, but the system will only allow me to do so after 24 hours. I’ll be back then to do that.
Thanks to the others who answered as well.

Maricela answers:

OK – I’ve done the math for you (not too hard once you know the equation!) To figure out a percentage of weight lost (or percentage of anything), you would divide the number of pounds lost by the starting weight. For instance:

13 pounds lost/216 pounds starting weight = 6% loss
13 pounds lost/180 pounds starting weight = 7.2% loss
13 pounds lost/170 pounds starting weight = 7.6 % loss

If everyone lost the same amount of weight, the winner would always be the person who weighed the least to begin with.

LOL jayj… Santa needs to get you a new calculator for Christmas! No problem, and tell your colleagues to keep up the good work (wish I could do as well…)

Mark asks…

would dieting cause a flatchest and droopy face? How could I lose weight and avoid that at the same time?

Im currently on a low-carb diet in which i only eat healthy food such as veggies and protein, and avoid fat and sugar completely. I workout for 30mins-1 hour daily. I’m concerned about getting a flatchest or droopy cheeks due to the weight loss. Is there any way i can lose weight effectively without those happening?

Maricela answers:

If you do it the wright way by losing weight healthely 1-2lbs a week.
Find calorie/fitness calculator on the net, enter all your stats and it will tell you how many calories you need a day to maintain, take off 300-400cal off that number and thats how much you need to lose.
Eat 5-6 small meals a day (eat every 2-3 hours)
5-8 servings of fruit and veggies a day
8 glasses of water
have complex carbs for breakfast – they give you energy
have lean meat (protein) for dinner – repairs muscle
cardio exercise 4-6 times a week for 30-50min, light weight training
dont consume foods that are made of white flour (white bread, cakes, past etc.), sugar loaded foods (cookies, icecream, candy etc) and nothing fried, oily.
Ofcourse you can spoil yourself once in a while with a little treat:)
