How to GAIN or 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 or lose your weight overnight so don't expect to gain or lose if overnight. Plus, if trying to lose weight, 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.

"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.

How to gain weight and stop the teasing?

ANSWER #3 of 6

Its all in the nutrition. You want to up your calorie intake from the average 2500 to at least 3500 while lifting weights. Make sure that what you eat is not junk food, even though they have the highest calorie content. Foods high in protein and complex carbohydrates work best.

Finally when weight training, you should have a workout plan that consists of heavy weight with low repetitions (somewhere around 5-7 per set). You can usually expect to gain about 1-2 lbs of muscle every week or two depending on your genetics.
