Me and my family want to start a healthy eating living, Help?

February 4th, 2013 2 comments

Good tips and tricks as a family to start healthier eating, dieting. My parents are in their 50s and I’m 18.

So far I’ve thought about green tea, no carbs for a week, smoothies, less caffeine, more water

Anyone got anything they’ve done or knows that works? Or if my ideas are any good,?

Isn’t that funny! I’m 18 too, and my folks are also in their 50s. I recommend watching "Forks Over Knives", and "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead"-two great DVDs that have really helped us-even my father, who was really not into healthy eating! Best wishes!

How is it possible that I lost 10 pounds in 7 days without dieting and minimal exercise?

January 19th, 2013 5 comments

Last week on an accurate scale I weighed 145. Today, I weighed myself at the same time as last week, using the same scale and I weighed 135. I haven’t been dieting. I go to the gym 2 a week and all I do is 30 minutes of cardio and some weightlifting. Should I be concerned about a possible health issue?

See a doctor. Gaining or losing a lot of weight in a short amount of time could mean a thyroid problem.

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.

Why should you avoild eating grains when dieting?

I’ve heard from some people that you should avoid eating grains when dieting. Why is that?

They have more starch which means more carbs… though carbs are good for you too much can make you gain weight. You dont have to completely cut it from your diet but you dont want to live off of them either… a healthy balance should be good for anyone 🙂 hope i helped 🙂

Is it ok for a red foot tortoise and eastern box turtle to share a diet?

December 22nd, 2012 4 comments

If the food dishes in the tank provide for each of their individual dieting needs, would it hurt the other if they ate some of others food? are their diets that different?

they eat roughly the same diet, but the problem you have is the husbandry of these two reptiles is different so they should not be housed together, you might also have a problem when they get bigger over territory, you really should think about getting separate housing for them as the temps you need to keep a red foot are not suitable for a box turtle, you should never mix the different species of turtle and tortoises sorry honey.

Can some 1 explain the atkins diet in detail for me?

Can some 1 explain the Atkins diet in detail for me? I wanna do the Atkins diet so i can go from 206 to 180. Can some 1 list the steps of starting the diet and completeing it. Also i do not mind hard core dieting.

buy the book. or get it out of the library. its quite a detailed process.

in detail, see the wikipedia.

for overview: eat little or no carbs (carbohydrates) and force your body to consume the energy stored in your body in various forms. it is done in stages. each stage is stressful to your body, difficult (yes, hard core) and totally unnecessary to loose 26 pounds.

for that amount of weight, you are better off changing your eating habits, preferably on a permanent basis. eat fresh plenty of fresh seasonal fruits and veggies, eat modest amount of animal products, and avoid fast food and processed foods. invest in yourself by spending a few more bucks at buying food that has no unpronounceable ingredients.

the atkins diet is way over rated. don’t do it.

Not new to dieting but I want to try the special k challenge?

December 14th, 2012 2 comments

Has my previous dieting already affected this or work with my body?

the special K challenge is crap. One CANNOT eat carbs for two meals and lose weight properly. If you want to lose weight, try the south beach diet. WAY better, WAY healthier, and it trains you to eat better which will help you keep the weight off, not only lose it..

What would happen if I took diet pills while exercising and working out?

December 6th, 2012 2 comments

Trying to get rid of about 10 lbsand all this workin out and dieting hasnt been working for that, just getting me to increase muscle. If I take diet pills like prescription, how long should I take them for?

Nothing more would happen than if you didn’t take diet pills.
If they contained caffeine you might feel awake enough to exercise more. Cheaper to have a cup of tea or coffee.
