weight loss (healthy)

hey. I need to loose weight like 10 pounds in the next 3 weeks. I want to do it the healthy way. any tips? I will not starve myself I have already done that and lost 12 pounds in a week but then a bunch of things got messed up and I felt very sick. so is there any way I can do that the healthy way?

Answer #1

Try running or jogging for 30-60 min. a day, twice a day. I switched to working out twice a day (9a.m.-noon; 5p.m.-9p.m.) and it really helped me gain the muscle back after I stopped working out for a week.

Try this workout for about 30-90 min. a day for 3 days a week.

20-min. Run/Jog Abdominal Crunches - 3 sets to failure (Until you can’t do anymore!!) Push-Ups - 3 sets to failure Squat - 5 sets of 15 12 10 10 8 30-min. Run/Jog (Try to run the whole time without stopping) Bicep Curl - 5 sets of 15 12 10 10 8

Those will work every muscle you have, so it’s a good try. About foods, eating doesn’t make a difference. It doesn’t matter what you eat as long as you’re making use of that energy. If you eat and just sit around, that will get stored as fat, and it will just add on.

Cutting down on soda is good for beginners. If you’re a daily drinker of soda, cut back to 3 days a week of soda intake. After a while, cut down to only once a week, or even none.

As for food, try to eat healthier. It’s okay to eat fatty foods, but like I said, it all depends what you do with that food. Try to eat less junk food, and eat organic foods. I know it’s hard, but it’ll be worth it. My friend used to eat junk food 7+ times a week, but after helping him, he now only eats it 1-2 times a week. That’s pretty good for someone who gets large portions of fries and burgers. Watch what you eat, and if you really have to, record what you eat, and dump all fatty foods away.

I may not be a physican, but I am an active bodybuilder soon to be in the Marines. I started off eating fatty foods and gym class was my only workout session. Now I work twice a day 5 days a week, and eat healthier foods. It really has helped me to lose fat and gain muscle. I was 118lbs. and 15% body fat when I started a month ago. Now I stand at 129lbs. and 11% body fat. That short month has made me lose 4% of fat and gain 11 pounds of muscle.

Just stay motivated and ask away if you need help.

Answer #2

to start loosing weight work towards exercising for at least 30 minutes a day and eat healthy and try to switch any soda drinks, fruit juice drinks and energy drinks with water because there all full of sugar but first you need to see a doctor and get your bmi (body mass index) calculated for your height and age he/she will tell you what weight range your in and how much you need to loose/gain if your not in the healthy weight range see a doctor first because you may not need to loose any weight

Answer #3

If you want to lose 10lbs and maintain it off it will take more than 3 weeks it will probably take 10lbs meaning you will only lose 1-2lbs a week that is the healthy way to do it what you need to do is burn more calories then what you take in so cutting back 500 calories from your diet will help you lose 1 pound a week so for example if a person needs 2000 calories to maintain weight, then to lose weight, that person will have to eat 1500 calories a day. and they would have to be active for at least 1 hour everyday! try finding how many calories you need to be healthy and then subtract 500 and that is what you will need in order to lose weight

Answer #4
