best diet for losing weight?

Maricela answers:

To maintain a healthy lifestyle & get in shape try this:

Start making small changes, if you really love a certain food that is ok, just cut down your portions, you don’t need to deprive yourself to be healthy.

As for your overall diet try to cut down on your calories, eat lean protein, and whole grains – bread is not bad, so long as it is whole grain & high in fiber, also eat your veggies & drink lots of water. Also lean calcium products such as yogurt, low fat milk & cheese fill up with low calories & high nutrition content. Cut out saturated & monosaturated fats & excess sugar.

For snacks I eat a lot of fruit & veggies as snacks, baby carrots, snap peas, grape tomatoes, grapes, berries, peaches. I also love the Flat Earth veggie & fruit chips, Quaker ranch rice cakes, popcorn, whole grain crackers, dark chocolate, blue diamond nut thins & string cheese. These are all small snacks with low fat & low calories.

It is best to eat 1200-1500 calories per day, if you eat less than this your metabolism will slow down, making it harder to lose weight. NO fast food. Don’t drink empty calories, stick to water, low cal juices (I mix 100% juice w/25% water to lower calories & sugar content) & low fat milk. No soft drinks (diet or regular) no eating unless you are hungry!

That being said, never underestimate the power of a good workout routine. In order to be healthy you MUST make time to exercise. Not exercising is not an option if you want to be healthy.

Lots of Cardio & weight training. Do 30-45 minutes of strength training 3-4 times per week followed by 45-50 minutes of cardio 5-6 times per week. Do your strength training 1st, it burns more calories. I also do loads of crunches prior to & after cardio. Also walk more during the day. Take a walk on your lunch break, walk to the store, aim for 10,000 steps per day a pedometer is a great idea. The more active you are the more calories you will burn & the more weight you will lose.

To stay healthy & not get discouraged remember this:
It is not recommended that you lose more than 2-3 pounds per week. Rapid weight loss can be dangerous & is hard to maintain. Losing weight is difficult because 1 lb is 3500 calories, so you must burn 3500 calories per pound you want to lose.

If you really want to lose the weight you are going to have to use discipline & work hard. Your health is worth it!

In order to lose fat consuming fewer calories and burning more energy should be practiced. While dieting to lose weight, not only weight is lost but muscles and water is also lost along with the fat. Running would burn more energy thereby causing you to lose weight fast and healthily.

Healthy weight loss is defined as a loss of body fat and a preservation of muscle tissue. Here are some easy fast weight loss ideas:

Consume more water throughout the day. Drinking eight glasses of water is one of the most rapid weight loss tips that is suggested by dieticians.

Include organic foods for the breakfast like apples, bananas, plain yogurt, tomatoes, carrots, peppers, raw honey and wild smoked salmon.

Go for a regular walk and maintain a brisk walk throughout.

Having dinner at least 2 or 3 hours before sleeping.

Along with diet pills or other supplements regular exercise and proper diet should be maintained.

Eat the right food and keep a watch on the quantity.

Eat slowly so that you can get a feeling of fullness and thus limit the quantity.

Weight loss tips for a 15-year old girl?

I’m fifteen years old, soon to be sixteen, and I weigh 184 lbs. I want to lose weight before my next year of High School, because I’ve always wanted to be skinny. My problem is that my mother is never home to cook meals, and I don’t know how to cook too well, so she always brings home dinner. Therefore, I love fast foods and I would still like to eat them, just not as much(so now I make what I can at home and eat out only on weekends). I’m pretty good when it comes to snacking, because I eat these 40 cal puddings that I can make myself. I go walking almost every morning with my best friend for about an hour and thirty minutes.

I’m a picky eater, so I need help. I also live in a bad area, so exercising is not always an option. However, I really want to lose weight for good and I’ll try nearly anything this time around. I need tips, maybe healthy recipes I can learn to cook, and low calorie GOOD snacks I can have instead of what I usually eat. Please give me advice. I’m just a teenage girl that wants to look thin.

Maricela answers:

Hey hun, I understand your struggle to want to become healthier. Americans in general are growing larger due to the conveinence of fast food, and ready-made meals.

When you have time, do some research on easy & healthy snacks and meals to make at home. Instead of eating the puddings, you should switch to jello. Jello is a lot less fattening. Switch to drinking water (tap or bottled) , and if you happen to get a sugar craving for something sweet, then just buy some flavored water, or a sports drink like gatorade or powerade.

Elimate FROZEN dinners, and pre-packaged meals. Easy things to make at home for someone young, Sandwhichs, Oatmeal, Rice, Vegetables (canned, frozen, or fresh…..canned vegetables are cheap and super easy to heat up), and eat plenty of Fruit (fruit generally is considered as a snack, and they are SWEET and help keep you away from unhealthy sweets) Just make sure if you eat canned fruit, that you try to avoid the stuff that is heavy in the syrup, try to look for “light syrup”, or eat dried fruits with nuts (they have several different types of trail mixes…however if you eat trail mixes, avoid the ones with the m&m’s and other candies)

DONT eat fast food unless you have too! If you know your parents or yourself are going to Mcdonalds, Burger King, Taco Bell, KFC…etc…go online to their website, and they have nutritional information of their foods….look up the one with the least amount of Calories and Sat Fat! ( ) is a good idea to visit

One tip for exercise, continue walking daily (if it is safe to do so)…If exercising isn’t the best choice where you live, and you have no access to a gym membership, then you can buy things to do at home. You can get a jump rope and make it a hobby to jump, you can always use canned foods as weights to exercise with.

Hope this helps, if you want any more tips feel free to email me @

How to lose weight for the summer? HELP :/?

Okay, so… i’m 15, in the 10th grade, and I am over weight.. I’m not REALLY fat, but im not skinny either.. I can lose some weight and I really really want to.. this summer I want to go on vaca and in a bikini instead of a one piece. I just really want to reach my goal and lose weight for myself and to boost my confidence, I sometimes feel horrible about myself and my image, like maybe the media has something to do with it, and all teenage girls try to fit a certain image, but that is kind of besides the point right now because I actually do need to lose weight! I’m 5’6 and about 200….. *sigh* anyways, what are some things that I can do to lose weight for this summer? I have already began to give up sodas, and now I need to give up junk food, I can do it.. it’s going to be tough, but I know I can do it… but what other things will help me get in shape.. my goal weight is like 160, I dont think that’s too unreasonable.. it’s better than what I am now, and I really really want to lose this weight as I’ve said before, will running help me lose weight quickly? If so, that’s something I would like to do.. HELP!!! tips? suggestions??

Maricela answers:


It definitely is possible to lose 40 pounds by this summer! A healthy number of pounds to lose per week is 1-2 pounds, but it is possible to lose three pounds a week if you start running. Here’s what I would recommend:

1) Start writing down what you eat and how many calories it has. This actually can make a huge difference in your weight loss, if you do it the right way. I personally use a FitBook (it tracks 12 weeks) to count my calories, but if you don’t want to spend money, you can use a notebook and write down what you eat and the calories it has in it. Start measuring your portions — if you eat cereal for breakfast, use a measuring cup for the milk and the cereal so you know exactly how many calories it is. Pack your lunch instead of buying at the cafeteria so you don’t have to guess at calories.

2) Lower your caloric intake and up your exercise levels! This is an obvious one, but you’d be surprised at how many people think they can lose weight without changing anything. You should probably decrease your calories to 1,400 to 1,500 per day, and once you get to your goal weight, you can bump that up to 1,600 calories per day. As for exercise, running is great because it burns a lot of calories quickly. If you run for 30 minutes a day, you’ll definitely lose the weight, but it would also help you to start doing strength training exercises (pushups, crunches, leg lifts, etc.). Just make sure that if you do strength-training exercises, that you give your body a least a day or two to recover.

3) Drink water! Water revs up your metabolism, and, after a while of cutting out soda, you won’t want to drink anything but water. I gave up soda over two and a half months ago, and I can honestly say I will never drink it again, even diet soda. It may have 0 calories, but it destroys your health and has been linked to a whole host of problems. I suggest getting your own water bottle, so you don’t have to constantly be buying plastic bottles, and make sure to drink lots of water when you’re working out!

4) Make yourself accountable. Whether it’s journaling about your weight loss, talking about it with a friend, or getting a workout buddy (or all three!), making yourself accountable makes a huge difference. For me, personally, I do video blogs on my computer. I don’t post them online or anything, but it really helps to have visual evidence of what I looked like before. I can also go back and see what setbacks I faced before, and it motivates me even more.

5) Make sure to get enough sleep. If you’re tired, you probably won’t feel like working out, and if you do, you won’t have enough energy to work to your full potential. Along with sleeping well: stop eating three hours before you go to sleep, so your body has time to digest your food, and also make sure you don’t have any electronic distractions near your bed, like a cell phone/computer, that will disrupt your sleep.

I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to email me 🙂
