What is the likelihood of gaining back weight after New Direction ketosis weight loss program?

March 4th, 2013 2 comments

I am interested in starting the New Direction weight loss program which uses ketosis in order to maximize weight loss. By doing so and maintaining healthy eating habits, what is the likelihood of regaining weight?
The program is carefully monitored by nurse practitioners and my family doctor through blood tests and ekgs.

Quick weight loss does not work on any diet. The weight always comes back plus more. If you reduce your caloric intake by 500 calories per day you will lose one pound per week and most of the weight will not come back.

How does a cheat day "work" on a diet without sabotaging one’s hard work?

January 25th, 2013 1 comment

I am trying to lose weight but I am very hungry. I’m lowering my calorie intake by 500 calories a day which will only lose me one pound a week by diet alone. I am also exercising which is increasing my hunger. Needless to say I look forward to my cheat day. All the different diets and theories differ but seem to agree that you are to splurge on your cheat day. However, mathematically speaking, the extra calories sabotage what I’ve worked towards all week.

Please help me to understand……

The reason you are hungry is because your body is used to the lifestyle and caloric intake you have past established, and you are restricting and depriving yourself so much all at once. Gradual change, such as changing your diet to clean and healthy foods (lots of fruits and veggies, lean protein, complex carbs, minimally processed), and getting some sort of exercise everyday is a good start. Once you are used to that, you can start counting calories and doing specific training.

When counting calories, first you need to calculate your BMR (Basic Metabolic Rate) which is how many calories your body burns just from being alive and needs to function. The formula is this:

Women: BMR = 655 + ( 4.35 x weight in pounds ) + ( 4.7 x height in inches ) – ( 4.7 x age in years )
Men: BMR = 66 + ( 6.23 x weight in pounds ) + ( 12.7 x height in inches ) – ( 6.8 x age in year )

Once you figure this out, you can coordinate your caloric intake and exercise routine.
Say your BMR is 1,500. You could eat 2,000 a day and burn 500 in exercise.

A cheat day is good way to give yourself a break. You can still eat your favorite foods on this day, but the key is portion sizing so you don’t cancel everything out/ Don’t obsess over it; just read the label and keep in mind and don’t eat an entire box of cookies. Moderation is key.

Salads without cheese, plenty water, fruits bananas,
Vegetables, fiber geared cereals or honey nut cheerios

What do you think about weight loss pills?

January 19th, 2013 7 comments

Who is for and who is against weight loss pills? I`m doing some sort of a survey among you people so I can decide whether I will take some weight loss pills in order to lose almost 30 pounds or not. If you don`t agree to weight loss drugs, what else besides eating vegetables do you suggest?

Hello! I don`t agree to weight loss pills. I believe you must lose weight the same way you gained weight.. The best way to lose weight is the healthy way. Just keep your calorie intake under control and things will work out great! I work a lot so I use an online diet and workout planner to count my calories. There`s a good one at, and it’s free. in case you`re interested in losing weight the “usual” way, that’s a great choice. In my opinion, this is the safest and healthiest way to stay in shape.

Can you get a flat stomach with dieting alone?

January 11th, 2013 10 comments

If you keep dieting, will you get a flat stomach eventually or do you absolutely NEED to exercise?

Most people have a layer of fat over their abdominal muscles and this is why they don’t see them. Diet is probably around 80% but exercise is important too. Swiss ball exercises will strengthen your core muscles which support your internal organs and posture. Sit ups or other ab exercises will improve the look of your stomach muscles once you uncover them. A mixture of cardio and resistance training will help you do this more quickly. Train the big muscles like the legs, chest and back to burn most calories as this will burn fat from the stomach area too. Spot training won’t work. Hope this helps.

How do I lose weight when i’m not good at healthy eating?

January 11th, 2013 3 comments

I really want to and need to lose weight, but i’m rubbish at healthy eating. I start off good but then I start craving fast food & chocolate and give in. My friends always eat unhealthy food so I can’t stick to my diet when eating with them because I start craving that sort of food again. Please help!! (By the way, I HATE lettuce)

jog about 30 minutes a day and there is this weight loss earring that really workes called aurislim worn by mariah carey and christina aguillera, just google it.

also, as much as possible, eat only about 1500 calories a day and dont go beyond.

with that i guarantee weightloss.

How do u motivate yourself to stay on a diet?

January 7th, 2013 17 comments

I can usually go on diets easily, but the thing is its hard for me to stay on them. They usually ony last from one -two weeks.

Why not combine diet and workout together. You do not have to burn your fat in the gym, you can find work to do around the house, yards or other out door projects.

Such as …..

Something to do with landscaping, you move a lots of dirt, rocks etc. The results will be so quick and pleasant than just set there and thinking about the cherry pie or ice cream on top of fresh made hot apple pie …..

How can I keep myself motivated on my diet?

I started a diet yesterday but the only thing I wanted was girl scout cookies. I ate the entire box. It seems like i eat worse on diets than off.

don’t think about the diet while you’re doing it. just tell yourself you’ll have a cookie later, and later.. trick the mind into thinking you’re going to treat yourself with a cookie later on. this trick works wonders.
you should also get rid of all junk, boxed, and processed foods from your house. plenty of water, natural fruits, veggies, meats, and whole grains shouild rule your kitchen.
