Lisa asks…

How do I loose weight and get a toned butt, thighs and stomach?

I’m a teen 5’0 and weigh 121. I want to become more athletic and toned? Any sports, tips, or ideas I can try?

Maricela answers:

You have to eat to loose weight. If you dont’ eat you will go into starvation mode and no matter if you drink all water your body will still hold onto it in fear of not getting it when it should.

The perfect way to loose weight and monitor your progress is to use a calorie counter on a daily basis while you diet.

Energy In/Energy Out

Food Intake: 1,200 Per Day

One Pound equals 3,500 Calories

To loose one pound per day, You need to burn your food intake plus your one pound of fat

1,200 (intake) + 3,500 (Outtake) = 4,700 Calories Burn

You must burn at least 4,700 Calories everyday to loose one pound at least. It is very easy to go up and beyond 4,700 calories each day.

Best way to do this is to track your progress on a calorie counter monitor watch. If you do it by the numbers you can loose the weight. It is just a matter of changing the way you think about weight loss.

Once you start wearing your calorie counter you can see the numbers increase and you fill find yourself doing extra things in your day, like tapping your foot while waiting at the light in your car, chewing gum, singing out loud and so on onto of your workout routines. You begin to see that everything you do in your day contributes to the overall numbers needed to loose that pound.

Water Intake/Less Storage

Most people do not get enough water in their system. Water is your body’s principal chemical component, comprising, on average, 60 to 80 percent of your weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.

Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don’t have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. To determine if you are getting enough water use this simple formula.. Take your weight, for example 150 pounds and divide by 2. Take your answer which is 75 lbs and change it to ounces, in this case 75 ounces. That is how many ounces of water you need a day. Your body performs mostly on water. If you make sure you get enough water everyday your body will perform at top notch and your body will no longer have the cravings of junk food. You will have a better performing body system to help you work out and feel better thru out your day.

Good Food

My favorite things to eat:

Avocado Wraps

Simple: Low Carb Tortilla, Half Avocado sliced, alpha sprouts, lettuce, soy bacon…Just wrap it up and eat. You can vary the things you put inside so long as you keep it to approx 4 or 5 items. You want to make sure they are fresh, low calorie and filling. Avocado and mushrooms can replace meats in your meal and still have great taste.

Special K Cereals are fantastic. They have that sweetness that one craves and is so good for you. Calories are low. Great for even just dinner.

First thing in the morning…A Glass of Chocolate Milk. Yup!! Chocolate Milk. We all crave that “got to have” item in the morning. Milk is the best thing you can have for yourself while working out. The chocolate (and you can use Carnation Instant Milk for this but I simply use Nestle dry mix) will give you that sweet “snack” that you need. If you give your body a little bit of it and its in a control way, you will not crave sweets and junk the rest of the day.

Lean Cuisines

Fantastic food! Each meal is approx 180 t0 380 calories per box. So think about your calories. 1,200…You can still have several of these meals a day and still be under your intake requirements.

It’s all about the numbers and watching what you take in and what you burn out. And you know what..If you go over your 1,200 mark for food intake…that’s okay…you simple up your total calories burned for the day by what you took it. So long as you burn off the over all calories to be more than your food intake. Just make sure you stick too it so you can reach your weight loss goals.

Fruits and Veggies

All you want on the schedule listed below.
Bananas are my favorite. They are very filling and can make a meal all on their own.



My favorite is ONE A DAY WITH ENERGY…I am in love with this vitamin because I am just like everyone else who loves those quick fix energy drinks. But what people do not realize is that energy drinks can contain 120 to 440 calories in just ONE Can. If you think about it..That is HALF of your allowed calories for food intake. The best alternative I have found is One a day with energy vitamin. Easy to spot, it is packaged in a green label bottle. Just One vitamin a day will give you as much energy as approx. 1 1/2 cans of red bull…WITHOUT the calorie intake. your making progress already because you have made more room in your intake calories for actual healthy food.



Carbonation is terrible for your system because it bloats your stomach. And when your stomach bloats, your jeans just don’t fit. You can drop one pant size simply by NOT drinking any carbonated drinks all together..Take away the bloat and you have instantly just made it one pant size lower. Besides, Sodas dehydrate you and with that One a Day Vitamin, you won’t need the Caffeine in the soda and it will also cut out those extra calories that you don’t need.
So remove that soda and the energy drinks and just think how much calories you just instantly removed from your daily intake. I normally consume what…four sodas and two energy drinks in one day…that is a total of …. 900 calories. Of what??? Nothing…Those are horrible calories and calories that can be replaced by food which will fuel your body for your day and your workouts.


Your Body

Your body is like a computer. You must program your body to do what it is suppose to do so it won’t crash and leave you with a virus. Your stomach is only the size of your fist. So think about it right now, Look at your hand and close your fist. Not very big is it. That is how much food you actually ONLY need to eat, each time you eat for every meal. If you eat anything more than that, you will stretch out your stomach which causes overeating and overweight.

What you need to do is eat every three hours, approx 5 to 7 times everyday around the same time. If you are always giving your body healthy and better food choices (the size of your fist) every three hours, your body will know you are giving it food. It will use that food properly. It will not go into starvation mode or store food away for later because it knows…it will get more in three hours. So what does your body do…it flushes everything out of your system because it doesn’t need it.. Now it knows…you wont’ forget about it and that food is on its way.


Walking Buddy

This is the best thing especially for woman. Get a walking buddy. One hour everyday. Just think about how much talking, venting and laughing two woman can do together while walking and yup, you guessed it…it just burns more calories and reduces your stress. You now are more relaxed because you can talk and free yourself of whatever is frustrating you while getting into shape.

Mark asks…

What is the best way to get rid of my stomach?

My stomach is not really big but it is not flat at all anyway my goal is to have it flat by the summer. What exercises should I do ? Do I have to do cardio along with stomach exercises? I would like to keep my weight b/c I am only 5’2 and 115 lbs.
responding to James E, Does anyone want a big stomach or is it just me WTF is up with that ??

Maricela answers:

Good carbs like celery and carrots will never make you fat. Bad carbs like cake will, but you don’t need to know the whole science of glycemic load. You need to re-learn how to eat so you can become thin and healthy. Find out about fastest way to lose weight, most effective exercise, good and bad carbs, water retention and secret trick used by models to flatten their tummy before an event.

Reading a book will take you hours but the information on a post, taking minutes to read, is not enough. The webpage below has just enough to know what you need to know. Links page has gov. BMI calculater to find out just how much overweight you are (teens plug in your age to compare to others your age). Most important– make sure to read the last “fat loss tip”, first before anything else, to see the number one food that causes Americans to be fat.

Ruth asks…

Is is cheating/ bad for you if you drink 5 hour energy to work out?

Sometimes i don’t have energy to workout everyday so I take a five hour energy to run on the tredmill and work out. I am 13 so I don’t drink it all the time maybe once or 2 times a month but its it’s not bad for you in anyway I will do it more.

also leave some weight loss tips below. I am over weight for my age and I want to get a few pounds off thank u!!

Maricela answers:

I don’t think that a few 5 hour energy’s per month is bad for you. It’s great you are working out, try to use a smaller plate when you get food, and drink more fluids (they will make you feel fuller and they are good for you (ok in fluids I mean water and milk, not beer you crazy teen)). If you’re only 13 I wouldn’t worry about my weight too much. A lot can change in 5 years.
