I've found out that a low carb diet works great, something like Dr.Atkins diet plan is great, with a good workout routine, you can lose the weight easily. and won't harm your body like pills and other junk, give it a try and email if it works good for you, for the first two weeks you can only eat meat, cheese, and eggs, sounds boring but, it works me and serval friends use the dr.atkins plan and have no complaints at all.

I've heard very mixed reports about the Atkins Diet. While "celebs" like Geri Halliwell think its brill, the medical, nutritional and sports communities take a very dim view of it. It really messes up your metabolism, and, in the worst cases, can induce diabetes and other permanant illnesses.

If you want to lose that little bit of extra weight, try going vegetarian or dropping your alcohol intake. Neither of these are very sociable options, but they do work, and without doing long-term damage to your health.

hope this helps

Make sure your carb, protien, fat ratios are correct. If you are hungry within four hours of a meal your ratios of carb, protien and fat are incorrect.

If you struggle to get up in the morning, or ache after workouts you are probably overtraining which will effect your body's ability to digest fat.

Also, don't carb up before training, i.e. DO NOT eat carbs at least 30 mins before training. This will ensure that energy burnt in your workouts is from fat and not carbs.

Although I am no fan of the atkins diet examining carb intake is important, a good pointer is if you feel sleepy after a meal - you have consumed to many carbs for your body to handle (this results in excess release of insulin that turns these carbs straight into fat).

Also beware of low fat diets - a top marathon runner was on an ultra low fat diet and died of a heart attack, it was found his arteries were 98% occluded with fat.

Last thing - for a rough guide, take your body weight in llbs and times it by 15, this will equal (roughly) how many calories your body needs per day.

For example a 150 llb guy would need 2250 calories (150 X 15). If this person wanted to sustain this weight and they did a TKD session of about an 1 hour they would need to eat an extra 500 - 800 calories.

Work out your ideal weight and eat to it, so if you are 160lbs and want to lose 10 lbs eat 2250 per day plus what is needed to replenish fuel used in workouts - it will be slow loss but as it will be a lifestyle change and not a fad you will probably stick to it.

PS bulletproofalice has a really good point about dropping alcohol, a pint of strong larger is about 300 calories, that turn pretty much straight into fat. 5 pints and you are talking over half a days allowance of calories.

Just thought - Lecithin is pretty good for meatbolising those last few pounds.

Its also good for cholestorol probs.

Go on the Internet and search for Pilates.. I think that you will find it very beneficial.

Pilates?

I have enjoyed a few sessions of Pilates and it is great for core strenght and well being, but I can't see it helping in weight loss in any great degree.

I lost 60 pounds eating nothing but cereal and salad and walking my dog for 3 hours a night, and lost it over a period of around 3 months actual dieting time.

do NOT take my example. Though it worked for me, it is potentially VERY dangerous as I got almost zero protein or fat, not to mention not eating enough in general.

Slow and steady is the way to be.

During the past summer alone, I have accomplished 50 percent of my goal of losing 30 pounds and maintaining a decent fighting weight as my job requires it. He's the big secret: CARDIO, CARDIO and then more cardio at least 3-4 times a week for 1 to 2 hours a session. I still eat normally and even splurge on occasion with a cheeseburger to treat myself for the hard work. If I followed a stricter diet regimen I definitely would have lost the full 30 pounds or better, but why make my life bland and boring with 3 salads a day? Just seek a diet that works great for your physiology and do consult a professional to check your health before taking on any strenuous regimen.
There are No secrets to it and don't cheat yourself on your workouts, nor should you push anything till it becomes painfully intolerasble. That will only hinder your exercises.

UKFF is right, IMO, but the Cambridge diet is said to be superior to Atkins and it's alternatives, as you don't miss out on anything.

The Cambridge diet is highly successful - where did I find out about it? In a linear algebara text as an example of linear programming!

ZenMeister is right about overtraining - I did it once and got so sick with bronchitis, after that, I was so weak I couldn't go for a short run, I had to build up my strength with walking.
You can't beat cardio, mixed with strngth training. Nothing will get rid of a beer gut better than running, good diet and sit ups.
