I'm not about saying that what she does is healthy or anything or I recommend you becoming an anorexic but there are a couple of good tips to learn from them when it comes to fast weight loss.

1. Drink 2 glasses of iced water BEFORE eating. This will make you fuller(thus eating less) and your body burns more calories to warm up the temperature in your stomach.

2. Diet pills: Try Xenical or Reductil or any product with Hoodia. Works like a charm.

3. Be conscious about your weight. Avoid Macdonalds, Wendys, Carl. Jrs... start checking out that organic farm product store or try Subway instead(they have calorie listings of their sandwiches, Veggie Delight is the lightest: 226 calories)

4. Eat only twice a day. No more than 500 calories.

5. If tempted to eat, then chew the food in your mouth, savour the taste; then SPIT IT OUT. This helps deal with the frustation from dieting and enjoy the food at the same time, without the weight gain.

6. Avoid CARBS. Its disgusting and piles up on your thighs. Avoid rice, pasta, bread, etc.

7. Clear your fridge of everything! Go shopping at a gourmet supermarket. Keeping expensive food in your fridge will make you more conscious about eating them, thus eating less.

8. Because of the vitamin-deficient diet tips mentioned above, remember to take 2 multi-vitamin pills 2 hours BEFORE the DIET pills.

Hope that helps.
you are an idiot.

The whole "your body uses calories to battle the icewater" is minimal and unnecessary.

this way of dieting is extremely unhealthy and will be temporary. anything you drop you'll gain back then some, because you went about it the wrong way.

the best way to lose weight, and keep it off, is a good diet with exercise, and don't get too crazy too fast.

edit: CARBS DISGUSTING AND PILES UP ON YOUR THIGHS? Please never give nutritional advice again.

do NOT be afraid to eat carbs.


I am not advocating this guys advice. I am saying though, you asked for quick weight loss solutions, ROFL, and he delivered.

How about a TREADMILL?! 60 min a day, 3-5mph... the weight will fall off in 30 days.

Nothing will "fall off" without a good diet.

cocaine is a good appetite suppresant but i'll tell you the best appetite suppresant on the market, better than any other pill is Adderall. No joke. you can go through a day eatting one small meanl off one pill.

Adderall is given to ADD patients.

no kidding. when i got put on that for my ADD, i didn't eat unless someone shoved food down my throat. now, mind you, i'm a huge food lover, but on adderall, i just didn't feel the joy. that was with only 15 mg pills too.
that+constipation made me drop it and deal with my ADD


but honestly, 4 weeks on it and I dropped 12 pounds while I was being lazy as always.

When I was in college, I weighed 133 pounds. At 51, I've settled between 145 and 148. I exercise like the devil. Still, I find that at this age, it's very easy to put on, weight. When I want to lose a few pounds, quickly ... I cut back on carbs, drink lots of water, and consume plenty of fruit. Fruits are full of sugar, but I find that they don't put on pounds for me, perhaps in part, because they help to ensure . . . regularity. The biggest secret, to maintaining a healthy weight, is NOT to put on the pounds. Do not, add more than five unwanted pounds, to your frame . . . if you do, get them off. Once you start packing on ten pounds, it's fifteen. Fifteen pounds, lead to twenty. From then on, it's hopeless.

i should have stayed big, none of my clothes fit. even the clothes that were bought too small are now too big. oh the perils of weight loss.

Never stop eating. You can cut down by a little bit but keep in mind the 3 good meals a day. If the diet change is too dramatic then your metabolism goes down and you start to lose weight slower. You should also exercise often, not constantly but more. Either way, a dramatic change is very unhealthy and will most likely not give you the effect you desired. Be patient and always remember to eat right and exercise!

The total caloric intake, of course, is simply spread out amongst the many meals. For instance, if you have a normal 2000 calorie diet consisting of 3 meals a day, instead of having 675 calories per meal (or thereabouts), you could have a few 500 calorie meals interspersed with lower 150-250 calorie "meals" (or snacks). Although you're eating more often, you don't gain weight since you're ingesting fewer calories per meal. The 5 meals a day usually consisted of light breakfast, lunch and dinner with 2 snacks in between (usually consisting of one of those elementary lunch cartons of milk, an apple and crackers or maybe half a cheese sandwich). [edit] the trick, of course, is not to overindulge and treat every meal/snack as if it were dinner

There's a lot of good advice in this thread (and a lot of bad too). Something that I haven't seen mentioned yet that really helped me is tracking what you eat by keeping a food journal or some of the various online sites (i use sparkpeople.com). This shows you what you are eating and provides a measure of accountability. I stick between 1800 and 2200 calories a day and try to maintain a good balance of carbs (55%), fats (30%), and protein (15%) although I am usually a little lower on the fats and higher on the protein. This combined with running and weight lifting has put me into pretty good shape after getting hit hard by weight gain the first two years of college. It's all about making good choices and moderation. You can have that donut or that coke, you just can't make a habit out of it.

I find it really hard to keep a food journal due to how much food I eat without nutrition facts and the work you have to go through to get the nutrition facts. Would be nice though.

just use fitday.com takes 15 min to register and toss in all the stuff you routinely eat that isn't already in thier database, and maybe 5 minutes a day entering/planning meals?.

Why thank you...

Thanks for the site smw but it's still pretty tough for me to figure out which type of fish I'm in eating. I'm pretty content with my body type right now so I don't think I'll need it that much.
