how do i lose weight in one month?

I am very experienced in nutrition and can help you.

First of all Do not purge. That will only work short term, and you will gain the weight back.

Also do NOT starve yourself. When you lose weight rapidly your body thinks that it's starving and reduces its metabolic rate, which makes it harder for your body to burn each calorie (they burn at a slower pace than they normally would). Then when you start eating normal again your body stores food, burns less fat, in case a "famine" hits it again. Gradually ease into your diet if possible. Many diet programs allow you to do this. Remember that small changes are easier to stick with than drastic ones. Start by always leaving a little extra on your plate, or drinking water instead of soda. Smaller changes are also more likely to remain with you when the duration of your diet is complete. Aim for behavior-change goals that you know you will be able to maintain over years, not just weeks.

I am going to give you a few good tips here, and also recommend that you visit my two free health and fitness sites, http:www/MyBestHealthPortal.com and where I post lots of great tips, secrets, videos and articles about dieting, nutrition, fitness, and more.

Here are some of my basic tips to help people lose weight correctly:

Diet Tip 1: Set Realistic Goals for Diet Success

An important component of diet success is setting a realistic goal. Failure to set realistic goals is a sure fire way to set you up for failure. If you set unattainable goals, such as losing 50 pounds in two months, you are not just setting yourself up for failure but also putting your health at risk too! You will be more likely to stick with a diet if you create realistic goals based on sensible eating strategies combined with daily exercise.

Diet Tip 2: Create Measurable Metrics

One important component to diet success is to have a measurable goal. You have a better chance at reaching your goals if your success can be measurable. A measurable goal might be to lose 6 inches in your waist in six weeks, lose 6% body fat in 8 weeks, or to lose 20 pounds in 12 weeks, etc. Studies have proven that having measurable metrics is essential for reaching your weight loss goals. Setting smaller, attainable benchmarks, like losing 1 to 2 pounds a week, will reinforce your motivation and give you the confidence to continue.

Diet Tip 3: Use the Buddy System

It is hard to make major lifestyle changes for many people when they are doing it by themselves. Many people lack the motivation to start something that seems insurmountable. For many, their poor eating habits have become just those habits. To break a habit it requires dedication, commitment and a desire to succeed. The best way for many to do this is to have a partner, someone to rely on, someone that helps motivate them, and most importantly someone who will also hold them accountable. Several studies regarding weight loss has shown that finding other people with similar goals can greatly improve yours odds of diet success. Having a buddy can also provide the support you need to exercise, diet, and also help steer you away from the many temptations that are present that can derail you from your weight loss goals.

Diet Tip 4: Keep a food log

Keeping a food log can be a huge asset in successful weight loss. A food log can provide a large amount of self-awareness. A food log can help you understand more about what you are eating, track your food better, identify any emotional triggers that trigger overeating, foster greater awareness of portion sizes, and help you discover your personal food triggers. Study any patterns that emerge from your food log and identify where you may be able to make more healthful changes. Trust me, the sheer act of tracking your food will increase your chances of dieting success. A food log also provides an added benefit of keeping you focused on and committed to your goals!

Diet Tip 5: Cycle your calories

Cycling your calories (i.e, 1600 on day 1, 800 on day 2, 1200 on day 3, 2000 on day 4, etc.) is also a very effective way to stop plateaus. Cycling your calories helps trick the body from wanting to slow down the metabolism. These few minor adjustments can help get you back on course.

Diet Tip 6: Prepare

Many studies show that be preparing your meals in advance you are less likely to reach for processed, high sugar, high fat foods that derail many good diets and the best of intentions. Preparing your meals in advance also allows you to weigh and measure foods your foods, track what you are consuming.

Diet Tip 7: Track

Monitoring what you eat using a food log helps remove certain uncertainties and allows you to better objectively evaluate how you are doing, and how your body to the diet. By tracking your food intake you know what you are eating and you can make needed adjustments to your diet as needed. Another benefit that I have seen from

You definitely need to get active and exercise.

Another benefit that I have seen from my years of personal training experience: the act of writing down what you eat seems to make people eat less. It will also help stop emotional eating, and zombie eating. People talk about comfort eating or emotional eating but you should not forget zombie eating. Mindles

Im 14 5,5 and weight a little over 200lbs whats the best way to lose weight?

Dear Jeff,

Congrats on wanting to change things so that you can live a healthier life. Personally I don't believe in "diets" per se, but rather adopting a healthy way of living, exercising, and eating. It has been shown that many diets don't work b/c they typically want you to restrict too much, eliminate certain essential nutrients or food groups, etc., which can set you up to binge later. The diet industry is a multibillion dollar industry for a reason - they typically work temporarily, but most peopl ecan't keep them up & then go searching for the next diet.

The main things that are necessary to lose weight are the following:

1) Exercise - balance/alternate cardiovascular exercise with strength training for the best benefits. Figure out what types of cardiovascular exercise you like to do and vary that too (if you're the type of person who gets bored easily). If you have medical problems and other health issues, it would be wise to consult with your doctor before beginning any extensive workouts. Great that you have a home gym!

2) Don't skip meals - it is much better to eat several smaller meals throughout the day than to only eat one meal a day. Many people think that skipping meals will help them to lose weight, but this actually slows down your metabolism. It is also not a good idea to eat in front of the TV, b/c it's hard to focus on the act of eating and easy to overeat that way.

3) Decrease caloric intake &/or substituting healthier foods (for unhealthy choices) - a nutrtionist would be helpful here.

4) If you think you may be eating out of boredom or emotional reasons (i.e., when you get angry, sad, hurt, or lonely), then it would be good to figure out that relationship. You can do this by seeing a therapist, reading self-help books, and/or going to a support group such as Overeaters Anonymous (OA). I'm not saying that you have an eating disorder and OA is not for everyone, but OA can be very helpful to let you know you are not alone, and sometimes listening/talking to others will help you figure out helpful solutions based on what has worked for other people who are working on similar issues. You will have to figure out what works best for you here.

You did not mention exactly how much or what kinds of foods you are currently eating or exercising, but I would strongly recommend that you see a nutritionist. When I had a weight issue due to a medical problem, I went to a professional nutritionist, and it helped tremendously. They will do a thorough assessment asking about medical and emotional issues as well. A nutritionist probably have you list what you are currently eating on a daily basis, assess your activity level, and then be able to recommend suggestions to help you meet your goals in a healthy way. Please be very careful about only getting your information online, b/c there is a lot of information posted online that isn't accurate. There is a lot of professional & accurate information in bookstores that you can look at for free as well.

5) Take care of yourself by trying to get good sleep - it may be hard when you're in school, but depriving yourself of sleep is also bad for your metabolism, mood, concentration, your body's ability to heal & grow, etc. There are lots of studies done on this. Also, if you are still growing (taller), then you need to be fueling your body so that it grows strong and healthy. Diets can sabotage the body's normal growth process and can potentially lead to immune system problems or other nutrtional deficiencies.

Best wishes, and hang in there - awareness is the first step & becoming willing to do the hard work comes next...it can only get better from here! :)
