DINNER: Tuna pasta (150g barbecued tuna steak, 1/2 cup each of frozen peas and snow peas, 100ml light evaporated milk, 1 Tbsp dry stock powder, 1 tsp cornflour and 3/4 cup wholemeal pasta) and 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese.
Clearly define your goal and identify your ‘why.’ The ‘why’ will determine the ‘how’ you will go about losing weight. You need a compelling reason why losing weight is a MUST instead of a SHOULD. A life change happens when there is a shift in perspective and awareness. Transformation occurs when there is a driving force to keep you committed. Once you understand why you need to lose weight, you can set specific goals (i.e. incorporating more vegetables, a number on a scale, a dress size, etc.) that make sense for your path.
Hi guys! Just want to let you know that I’ve been folllowing the excercise plan for begginers, [almost done with week 6], and I definetly feel way better and stronger tha before, which is what I was looking for months and couldn’t get it, thank you very much 🙂
Instead of wandering up and down the aisles on an empty stomach, eat before you go to the grocery store and once you’re there, purchase only the items on your list, suggests Joy Dubost, RD, PhD, a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. That way the only step left is deciding which brand or type of product to purchase. Dubost makes these suggestions: Reach for 1% or skim milk instead of 2% or whole milk; grab whole grain pasta, rice, and bread instead of white varieties; load sparkling water instead of soda into your cart; choose whole fruits or 100% juice over fruit-flavored drinks; and if you have a tendency to overeat straight from the package, pick preportioned sizes instead.
Whether it’s a healthy appetizer, a tasty side dish, or your favorite clean-eating dessert, you’ll know there’s at least one healthy option that you can fill up on while minimizing your intake of the unhealthier ones. You might convert a few people in the process, too!
Truweight aptly understands this and has crafted a scientific way to lose weight simply by eating healthy foods. Truweight’s program involves the use of many dietary phases like detox, high protein phase, superfoods phase which results in fat loss and muscle gain. This type of program fast tracks weight loss!
The trouble, however, is that most of us don’t like to make fast changes to a lifestyle we’re comfortable living, so eating less and moving more becomes a fierce battle. The couch and a bag of chips win far, far more often than they should.
Studies have shown that increasing your protein intake to 25-30% of calories can cut cravings by 60%, reduce desire for late-night snacking by half, and cause weight loss of almost a pound per week… just by adding protein to the diet (19, 20).
Most women over age 50 require 1,000 to 1,600 calories daily for safe and effective weight loss. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute notes that while inactive, overweight women usually need 1,000 to 1,200 calories daily for weight loss, active, overweight women and women weighing more than 164 pounds usually require 1,200 to 1,600 calories each day. If you’re extremely active during your weight-loss program, you may require additional calories to avoid hunger.
One of the biggest mistakes women make when trying to figure out how to lose belly fat: too many crunches, too little cardio. No matter how toned your abs are, your belly won’t look flat until you get rid of the layer of fat on top of them, says Jessica Smith, a certified personal trainer and star of fitness DVDs. For that, you need to rev your calorie burn. Interval training, in which you alternate high-intensity bursts of activity with easier bouts, has been shown to zap more belly fat than steady-paced moderate workouts.

Not every day is going to be a great day, and sure, you’ll encounter the occasional hiccup when it comes to your nutrition and training plan. Know that now and accept it. But if you stay dedicated to eating fewer calories and being a little more active, you’ll slowly but surely see those pounds come off.
Accessibility to foods: Some diet plans ship foods straight to your door, while others require you to shop for very particular ingredients. There are also a range of price points, with some diets costing substantially more than others. Consider whether the food allowed on a particular diet will fit into your budget and be relatively easy to find at grocery stores.
It’s unreasonable to expect a female to ever develop as much muscle as many males have, but this is something that you can work on and why strength training is highly recommended as a way for females to boost their rate of weight loss.
Get rid of sugars and starch if you want to lose weight fast. When you eat sugars, be it in your tea or those sweet cakes, they stimulate the production of insulin. Insulin is a hormone that makes the body store belly fat. Do this & it will be able to lose weight quickly and much faster.
A program that works and can be followed by the majority of women: Many weight loss solutions can generate results but not for the average women. They can work for celebrities or fit women but not for women of all ages and body type. Our goal was to present you with programs that you can follow and above all programs that will generate the results YOU want. Both men and women have weight problems but in general women are more anxious to lose weight. We wanted the programs to be ‘women friendly’ and take into account the different life stages that a woman has to undergo in her life (period, wedding, pregnancy, and menopause).
The other part of this plan is resistance exercise. This is important because it’s the part that focuses on building muscle. During weight loss, not all the weight lost is fat, some of it is muscle. Resistance training will ensure that you avoid the loss of muscle that usually occurs and will actually help you build muscle. You’ll be doing 3 resistance workouts per week:
Even though I’ve changed the way I eat, I still slide off course every once in a while, especially on special occasions. Remember, we are looking for progress, not perfection. Here are some tips to keep you motivated:
If you tried a weight loss diet you know that seeing results takes time and there’s no overnight quick fix. However there are scientifically proven ways to lose weight more effectively and faster than with traditional low-fat diets.
Instead of transferring food to serving dishes and placing them on the dining table, serve yourself straight from the pots and pans. When you have to get up from the table to serve yourself seconds, you’ll probably eat about 20% less, according to a 2010 study.

Hi!!! So this is Day 1 of this meal plan! I have lost a total of 90lbs and kept it off for 4 years but this past year I have gained 20lbs. I have continued to workout 5 days a week but my diet was not consistent. Although my diet was full of nutritious and healthy foods my portions were out of control; my excuse “I worked out so I can have 4tbs of peanut butter”. Even though I have continued my workout routines, you can’t out-train a bad diet. When I came across this meal plan, I knew this is what I needed to jump start my weight loss again and take control of my portions. I would love to stick with this for a month and see my progress!
“We started basic weight lifting and would do 15-20 minutes of light cardio like the elliptical at the end. At first I would be so frustrated with how weak and fat I was I would start crying while working out (I’m sure I didn’t look insane or anything lolol) but eventually things started getting easier and I was losing weight!
Healthy fats: Extra virgin olive oil, nuts & seeds (hazelnuts, almonds, cashews, walnuts, natural nut butter, chia, sunflower & flax seeds, etc.) avocado, wild salmon & other fatty fish (tuna, mackerel, herring, trout sardines).
I have a basic question…more better or not??? I am the type of person who spends a lot off hours for trainnig every week and i can push my self do more.My question is ,if i wanna go to gym more days than 4 for ex. 5 or 6 or start from the first week doing more cardio sessions than 3 for more time can i? I feel like i have done nothing with only 4 days per week. If i do 5-6 trainning days with a 30min cardio session after weights trainning should i increase the weekly calories intake? Thanksin advance for your answer Giorgos
As far as healthy snacking for weight loss goes, you simply can’t beat the benefits of raw vegetables. With virtually zero calories – thanks largely to their high water content – a few carrot sticks can satisfy your desire to crunch without ruining your waistline.
