How to LOSE weight?

First, determine from the information below, what your weight should be. Then set yourself goals of a week, 2 weeks, a month, 3 months, 6 months and a year. As you see yourself meeting your goals it becomes easier. Remember, you didn't gain your weight overnight so don't expect to lose if overnight. Plus, weight lost slowly is more likely to stay off than weight lost in a hurry.

BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measurement of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both men and women between the ages of 18 and 65 years.

BMI Classification

18.5 or less Underweight
18.5 to 24.99 Normal Weight
25 to 29.99 Overweight
30 to 34.99 Obesity (Class 1)
35 to 39.99 Obesity (Class 2)
40 or greater Morbid Obesity

Check out your BMI at the bmi calculator site below to see where you stand.

bmi calculator:

If you need conversion info, 1 kg = 2.2 pounds and 2.54 cm = 1 inch (12 inches = 1 foot) (1 stone = 14 pounds)

Info if you are trying to LOSE weight:

"How can I Lose 1 pound of body weight per week?"

One pound of body fat is equal to about 3500 calories. So to lose 1 pound of weight per week, you need to eat 500 calories/day LESS than you burn.

But it's not a good idea to lose weight simply by cutting calories. As well as decreasing calories you should increase your daily physical exercise. This helps to burn calories and build more lean tissue which in turn burns more calories.

"What should a minimum calorie intake be?"

As a guide to minimum calorie intake, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that calorie levels never drop below 1200 calories per day for women or 1800 calories per day for men. Even these calorie levels are quite low.

Another thing that helps to lose weight is to always eat a good breakfast. That helps to jump start your metabolism which helps start burning calories. Also, try to drink 8 eight ounce glasses of water every day. One before every meal (except breakfast) and before all snacks. That helps curb your appetite which helps reduce caloric intake.

ANSWER #2 of 2

If you feel hungry, drink water - first. Preferably not icy cold water. Then wait about 10 minutes. That will often take the worst edge off your hunger.

But otherwise, to lose weight you have to use more calories than you take in. The bigger the difference between the two, the faster the weight loss - but that doesn't mean it's easy or painless. The only real way to lose weight and keep it off is to make a permanent change in your eating and exercising habits - and that's not easy. Quick fixes - whether 'miracle diets' or expensive diets or their special products - they might help you lose some weight in the short term. But, believe me, it will come back, and stay.

So it's back to the old basics: plenty of vegetables and fiber (wholegrains etc), go easy on fatty foods (that includes frying!), on salt (that retains water), and gets lots of exercise - not necessarily at the gym, just a brisk walk around the block, or using the stairs instead of the elevator can really help.

Good luck!
