Tips to lose weight. Any suggestions?

I know it sounds obvious, eat healthier, exercise more, but I wondered if anyone had any tips that were slightly more specific. I mainly need to lose the wait from my stomach, so any tips for specifically losing wait from there would be appreciated.

Power Health Tips answers:

First of all walking is the best excersize. You first loose in your stomach first. That is where you will notice it more. You need to walk just a little faster then you normally would. Not too fast starting out. It is the swinging motion of your legs and your arms. You need to do this 30 minutes a day at the same time. Perferable after dinner. Make sure to breath properly while walking. Also, my doctor told me that it is all about portion control. Portion control your meals. Eat your cereals and oat meals with a skim milk. He told me to put my lunch and snack portions in a baggie. Mark your baggie for what day and for what meal. Your dinner is to be your most important meal. To steam your vegetables is the best way to eat them and use a light butter. If you eat chicken you can bake, broil, or boil and make sure to take the skin off. Drink plenty of water. Water is the key. Take a multi-vitamin and two 500mg vitamin c with rose hips. Rose hips helps the eyes. Take those vitamins once a day. Also do not take out your sweets. When you take out your sweets, and then when you go to eat something sweet, you will eat to much of it. Allow yourself once a month to eat your favorite sweet, of course portion control your sweet intake as well. And always have a positive mind frame. Set your plan, get your meals planned out and your time you will walk everyday. You will notice if you do eat right. Yeah, it always sounds easier said then done, but to keep a positive mind is the best medicine. Good luck to you.

does anyone have any tips to lose stomach weight?

like what exercises are good, what food to eat and what to stay away from ect.

Power Health Tips answers:

You need to eat lean meats (chicken, fish, turkey, lean beef) , low gi fruits (apples, bananas, pineapple, oranges), green veggies (broccoli, celery, green lettuce, spinach), only whole wheat breads (look on the package and see if the first ingredient is whole wheat flour, if it is it should be good unless it has high fructose corn syrup like Mrs Bairds does). Jillian Michaels from biggest loser has a great quote, “before you eat your food ask yourself, does it have a momma or did it come from the ground? If not don’t eat it.” Eat 5 – 6 small meals a day, this will increase your metabolism and help you to not feel so hungry in between meals. It’s all about portion and calorie control regardless of what food you are eating, but remember cleaning up your diet and eating X amount of calories of lean good healthy foods instead of X amount of calories of candy bars (I know you are probably not eating 4 candy bars a day but its just an example) will help you lose it faster. The leaner you are eating the faster you will lose it, and you will get a toned healthy look instead of a skinny jiggly look. You also need to drink at least 8 glasses (8oz) of water a day. Sometimes hunger is mistaken for thirst so if you are hungry drink 8 oz of water and wait 30 minutes, if you are still hungry then eat a light healthy snack. Water also helps you feel fuller longer and helps flush out toxins that may prevent fat loss. Also allow your self a cheat day (but don’t go over board and eat everything in sight or like 5 cakes in that day). Allowing yourself a cheat day once a week will help cut out cravings… Think of it like a reward if you did well with your diet and exercise that week have a piece of pie… If not just stick with you healthy food. You can find recipes for decent tasting healthy foods on sights like and and also on recipe sights like,, and

You need to do a good mix of both cardio and strength training, strength training is not going to make you look like Arnold, I promise (unless you are taking test). Toning and building muscle strength will help you lose fat quicker as you will be burning calories all day to feed your muscle tone instead of just while you doing cardio activity and it increases metabolism. Running, walking, rollerblading, swimming are good cardio work outs. You can also get some at home videos. I personally like Gilad’s Kick boxing, ten minute solutions videos (ten minute solutions are good because they have 5 ten minute segments and you can do one or all five or three or what ever you want to do at the time and they have a variety, like dance, pilates, yoga, etc.), shape and woman’s health videos. Get your self some 5 pound dumbbells or a gym member ship and do bicep curls, push ups, sit ups, squats, dead lifts, lunges, tricep over head extensions, chest presses, shoulder presses, etc. You can do most of this on your own if you just go and buy some free weights, but a gym membership is helpful as well. If you do end up getting a gym membership I would consult a personal trainer (most memberships come with a free session) they can show you what to do and come up with a meal plan for you… You can find the videos I mentioned on the web at, or at ross (cheap cheap at ross) or walmart or any other place that sells dvds.

Lastly, don’t get discouraged, it takes time… You should be losing 2 pounds of fat a week safely, more is not typically safe. But you could gain weight especially if you are gaining muscle. So if you get on the scale and it says you’ve gain two pounds don’t freak out… Just look in the mirror and go by how your clothes look and feel on you. Hope this helps! Email me if you have any other questions!

Power Health Tips answers:

It is not possible to spot reduce fat in just one part of your body, like your stomach. In order to lose stomach fat you will need to lose the fat all over your body.

In short you may need to start:

1) Eating healthier, this means:

Eat smaller meals
Eat more meals a day
Don’t starve yourself
Eat more vegetables and fruit
Drinks more water
Less sugars and empty calories (less soft drinks, cakes, cookies)
Switch to whole wheat versions of your bread and pasta, brown rice instead of white rice

2) Exercising:

Forget crunches, crunches work your ab muscles but they dont burn enough calories to lose belly fat, if you do hundreds of crunches daily you will have great abs but you wont see them under your belly fat.
Prefer full body exercises they burn the most calories and increase you metabolism for a few hours after your workout.
Get a training partner or a fitness trainer, a very worthwhile investment – of the money you save on junk food for example =)

Try also to reduce stress and get enough sleep. Both of these are related to weight gain and emotional eating.

I wish you all the best,
