Question by Katie: Are there any weight loss tips for teenage girls?
I’m 14,I’m 5?4 and weigh 145 lbs. I want to lose weight but also cut my cravings for snacks.

My family won’t limit me on what I eat, and I eat because I’m hungry, not because I’m bored. Are there any ways to improve my weight that aren’t obvious? I recently quit swimming and I now swim once a week for 1 1/2 hours, and help in the pool for another 1 1/2.

I understand I need to exercise, but running seems so boring and even with music or other people I get bored easily. I’d like to be able to exercise at home, if possible.
I know anorexia is a bad idea, and I’d appreciate not going on some ‘miracle berry’ or a website that isn’t trustworthy.

Weight loss boot camp is an effective way to lose weight. This program is fast becoming very popular nowadays. It is considered to be very helpful because you are encouraged to work hard and to train even harder. When you are participating in a boot camp you feel may feel a healthy competition between you and the other participants. Because of this, it will push you to work harder and be focused on losing weight.

Weight loss boot camp provides social support for those who decide to participate. It is a perfect set up for doing regular and effective exercises. Boot camps are fun and are often done outdoors. An advantage of a boot camp is that the large group dynamic will often help motivate the participants. You will be trained by former military members and gym instructors.

Joining boot camps does not require you to pay a membership fee, it is not only fun, it’s affordable and very effective. For people willing to put in the work, boot camps enable exercisers to see results quickly, the better to stay motivated. Fitness boot camps may be one of the fastest ways to go from zero to fit. The setup is simple enough: A trainer leads a group of clients through an intense hour of cardio and functional-strength training. It’s a very efficient workout because you are working your whole body in a short period of time and at the same time having fun while working out.

Many are held outdoors and often incorporate common environmental features such as stairs or ledges for cardio as well as functional exercises using only body weight or free weights. Weight loss depends on diet, metabolism and how much effort is put into class, but can be maintained by continuing to take part in boot camp, or continue with something else.

Boot camps have become such an enduring part of the fitness culture. Finding a suitable boot camp may take a few tries. The setting may feel uncomfortable or the instructor may not be what you expected. When choosing a fitness boot camp, you should first compare cost and convenience. Make sure that it is something you can afford, even months down the road, and that the classes offered best suits your needs. Before joining a boot camp make sure to consult your doctor before attempting to do any heavy physical training.

Weight loss pills + extreme diet + exercise?

Filed under slim ice questions

Question by D.U.: Weight loss pills + extreme diet + exercise?
I have gone up and down with dieting for the past 10 years, and I am really trying to end that cycle starting this January. My plan is to start on some weight loss pill and extremely limit my food intake (I’m talking 200-500 calories/day total) and exercising a lot (2-3 hrs/day). My ultimate goal is to be 140-150 (currently around 230) by June 1st. The reason, in case you’re wondering, why I am taking such extreme measures is because I have PCOS, so it is/has been very difficult for me to lose weight.

Does this plan sound do-able? And do you have any tips for successful weight-loss pills?
No silly answers, please!

Best answer:

Answer by Maddy
Firstly, weight loss pills do nothing.
They are just a money making scam.
Secondly, the extreme diet and exercise. Yes they will work but will you be able to continue this without turing anorexic…?

It’s only what you can do.

Using a Body Fat Monitor – The way to effective weight loss

January 5, 2011 by iceslim  
Filed under slim ice questions

(PRWEB) September 23, 2004 -

The most effective weight loss programmes can be measured by the amount of fat lost, this is usually determined as a percentage of body fat a person is carrying in proportion to their actual weight.

The most effective and by far the most accurate way to measure your body fat percentage is to use a body fat monitor. If you are serious about weight loss then a good body fat monitor is essential and will measure your body fat to within 0.1% of the actual total.

When someone says they want to lose weight, what they actually mean is they want to lose body fat; of course every human needs a certain amount of fat as it is essential for correct bodily function. Fat regulates body temperature, cushions and insulates organs and tissues and is the main form of the body’s energy storage. However, too much body fat, especially visceral fat around the major organs, can cause wide spread problems such as heart disease, diabetes and strokes.

It is also a fact that women do carry more body fat than men; this is natural and means that a woman’s body naturally has a higher percentage of body fat than the body of a man. The percentage of essential body fat in a typical womenÂ?s body is between 10-12% whereas a man’s body contains only around between 2-4%.

Including our essential fat it is considered acceptable to have a total body fat content of between 25-31% for a woman and between 18-25% for a man. Anything above these figures and you would be considered to be both obese and having too much total body fat given the overall composition of your body.

When undertaking a weight loss programme it is important to monitor body fat as this is a realistic indicator of your progress and if the diet is working for you. Remember, weight loss doesn’t always mean fat loss, yet fat loss should be the main aim of any weight loss or healthy diet regime. Many people often make the mistake of setting themselves impossible goals when they embark on a weight loss programme and lean body mass is not taken into consideration when setting yourself an ideal target weight.

By using a body fat monitor you can assess your exact requirements and achieve realistic goals. Judging exactly how much body fat you need to lose rather than how much weight is vital and this will lead to the maintenance of essential lean body mass which usually means calorie-burning muscle.

The market leader in body fat monitors is Tanita, through a great understanding of technology and years of extensive research Tanita have created a superb range of body fat monitors and full body composition monitors that will help you to achieve your ideal body fat ratio. Both easy to use and accurate a Tanita Body Fat Monitor should be an essential part of your weight loss programme and can play a vital role in any healthy lifestyle change.

The Tanita Body Fat Monitor uses Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, which involves sending a very low electrical signal through the body. Tanita uses Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis to make an indirect measurement of body composition. A safe electrical signal (50Khz, 800µA) is sent through the body via the patented pressure-contact footpads on the body fat monitor platform.

The only direct measurements that Tanita Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis makes are weight and impedance, all other values such as % body fat, Fat Free Mass, etc., are calculated. Impedance is measured in Ohms and can be defined as the strength and speed of an electrical signal travelling through the body.

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis is based on the fact that lean muscle tissue contains high levels of water and electrolytes, and therefore acts as a conductor of an electrical signal. Fat mass is comparatively anhydrous and acts as a resistor to the flow of an electrical signal. Increasing levels of fat mass result in a higher impedance value, and correspond to higher levels of body fat.

Tanita are at the forefront of the technological advancement of body composition monitors and their commitment to the end user has lead to many advanced features appearing on selected models. Along with body fat they also include calculations of your muscle mass, body water, basal metabolic rate, visceral fat rating and bone weight.

Ranging from the stylish and simple to use BF-574 Body Fat Monitor through to the new range of advanced Innerscan Body Composition Monitors, the BC-531 and BC-532, Tanita have catered for your every body composition need and with a range of prices to suit every budget.

Don’t quote me on this…………..I vaguely remember a discussion about a new diet pill or might have been shot. We were also discussing anti smoking shots and pills coming onto the market. Try google.

I am assuming you already know of phentermine, bontrell, adipex and all the other prescription medications.
