Your Questions About Weight Loss Foods

Jenny asks…

What is a good weight loss plan to lose 20 pounds by August 31st?

What are the best exercises to do to trigger this weight loss, and what are the best foods to eat?

Maricela answers:

I have been through it all and know what’s it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can’t be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I’ve worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can’t eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising…

This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it’s good for the heart.

However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It’s so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I’ve found a great addition to help any one out, it’s a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don’t get all crazy on me and say diet pills don’t work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn’t meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It’s an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace.com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it’s the best pill I’ve tried and I’ve tried cupboards full. Now this doesn’t mean you have to follow my foot steps but I’ve successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

Mary asks…

What food supplement would you recommend for weight loss?

I’m working on a new blog post and I’d like the community’s opinion on weight loss supplements.

What food supplements have you tried before and how effective were they? Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂

Maricela answers:

Beans!
The favorite right now with the cold weather is 15 bean soup.
One cup a day is over 100% of RDA of soluble fiber. Binds to fatty acids similar to the way Alli diet pills work. For about 25¢ a day.
Yes you get a bit gassy at first but after building up the good bacteria in the large intestine it tapers off. Great source of protein, iron, and calcium. And keeps you regular.
Also act as a complex carb so they make you feel full longer.
Spice them up with chili and garlic powder, black pepper and onions and diced tomatoes and the spices help increase metabolic rate.
There you go!

Ken asks…

What types of food will help with weight loss?

I am currently trying to lose weight and I was wondering what foods can and will help me with weight loss. I I am trying to lose weight I gained from an injury I am still suffering from. So please ensure that this food is not to heavy. The only exercise I can do know is some yoga and walking! Thanks!

Maricela answers:

A good healthy diet high in fiber, lean meats, eggs, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, antioxidant foods, healthy beverages and low in added sugar and salt help people lose weight, gain weight, lower cholesterol, increase energy, improve brain function, lower blood pressure, reduce cancer risk and have a more positive lifestyle!
You need to eat a lot more food and a lot more fiber!
Diets that exclude foods from any food group are fad diets and do not lead to permanent weight loss or solve any other health issues.
First, try to kick your fiber intake to 40 grams of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
Whatever you do, get your fiber from your food, not from a jar.
Fruits and vegetables have good fiber in them.
Try a breakfast cereal with at least 20% of recommended daily allowance of fiber in it. They are usually low in sugar so there is a double benefit. Blueberries or raspberries on top add more fiber and antioxidants. But fresh or frozen, not the kind in syrup.
Raw nuts are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Avocados are the best.
Lots of beans, peas, and grains are high fiber. Whole grain breads. Fiber kicks up the metabolism so you actually burn more calories. These foods will give you more gas in the beginning but if eaten daily, the bacteria in the digestive tract will elevate lowering the gas output.
This will get you on the path for a healthy daily bowel movement. This helps clean the system and aids healthy digestion.
I know it goes against everything you’ve heard but eating lots of the right foods will actually help you lose weight!
Next, take a basic daily multivitamin. Don’t look at your multivitamin as nutrition but more as an insurance policy. Think of it as filling in the gaps in your daily diet as opposed to a primary source of nutrients. If you are a woman, you may want a plus iron formula.
Last, you HAVE to drink lots of water to be healthy. But you can disguise it. Fill your glass all the way full with ice before pouring low sugar beverages. Try iced green tea with a splash of orange juice in it for sweet. More antioxidants. Add lemon juice to water for flavor. Slice up a cucumber and float it in pitcher of water. Gives it salty fresh taste. But you must drink up to 100 oz of water daily to help your body get rid of waste and the toxins it contains.
You must combine a healthy diet with exercise to multiply the benefit. Whether an hour a day in the weight room or just a 30 minute brisk walk every day, the added benefit of a regular exercise program really do increase and accelerate healthy weight loss. Add exercise as your injury allows.
You will get motivated when the changes start happening, I promise.
Good luck.

Paul asks…

What foods are good for your health or help you lose weight?

Ok, my boyfriend and I are on this diet. We only drink water and eat foods that have low sodium, sugar, sat. fat., high protein, etc. We are trying to figure if its ok to eat chocolate or drink juice even though it has sugar in it. Do you know of any foods or drinks that would be good for weightloss or foods that will keep our bodies healthy?

Maricela answers:

I would make your own juice with a juicer. A lot of store bought juices have a lot of added sugar.
Green tea is good to drink, as it helps to raise your metabolism. Good luck!:)
