While I assume this question will be closed - it might fall outside the scope of this StackExchange - I'd still like to answer. Yes. It is absolutely time to lose some weight. Keep in mind, I do not judge you. Fat problems or heart problems? The reason I say yes, is because there is quite a bit of excess fat there. While that, in and of itself, isn't the ...

It's important to get a good start and make yourself feel good about your weight loss project. The most important part of weight loss is eating fewer calories than before, it's much, much more important than exercise in that regard. So don't feel bad if it's hard to find ways to exercise in the beginning, it will likely get easier as you lose some weight, ...

In almost every case, it's better to start out with small increments on a daily basis for fitness and health, rather than one large session with long intervals. If you don't have much running experience, I would advise you to get a dedicated pair of running shoes (Shoes that you only use for running), and look into some kind of a couch to 5k type program. ...

You’re opening yourself up to lots of opinions. But, one of the indicators that could impress on you to make a change is your BMI. There are others, but, a BMI of 36 suggests obesity and the possibility of an onset of a host of medical problems. I would suggest you discuss your weight with your personal physician and get a complete medical check up to ...

in winter we naturally increase our calorie burn I think that's true if we lived outdoors, running around spearing animals and picking berries. But for most of the western world winter is a time of shorter days, less physical activity, more respiratory infections, and holidays filled with copious servings of food and drink. I mean really, how much time ...

It's most likely perfectly normal. Bodies are not perfectly symmetrical, and while you may have the same vein in your right arm, it doesn't necessarily mean that it runs in the same place.

My answer is based on my own experiences, as well as those of the people I train with. For completeness, references are at the end. Short answer: For endurance training, eat before you train and fast after, for strength training, eat after you train and fast before. Longer answer: When you train endurance/cardio, you'll need the readily available energy ...

Your body needs to maintain temperature, when you walk in the sunlight, you have two factors warming you up, you also have two things cooling you, the contact with the relatively cold air, and the evaporative cooling from sweating. When the temperature rises, the first cold factor becomes weaker, if the air is humid, the second factor will also be weaker ...

You won't lose much weight either way, but the 20 to 30 minutes every day or every other day will allow you to improve your fitness, and then allow you to exercise harder and longer (say one hour per day, 5 times per week) so that you can start to lose weigh. When I run for an hour, I burn about 1000 Kcal. This is a significant fraction of the about 4000 ...

"I've heard many people complain about not losing weight after a week" These are the same people who jump from program to program, expecting quick results. They're also the kind to jump on the latest weight loss fad/bandwagon. Don't be that guy :) "I've also heard people not seeing/feeling a difference after a month or so" These guys have the ...

Losing weight does have a correlation with working out/lifting. The most important thing is your diet, not the program. The program is 30%-40% of weight loss, while your diet is the 60-70%. What you put in your body becomes your body. If you eat clean, your body will be clean (cut, slim, lean). Working out tones the body to lift the weight that you want, ...

I would highly suggest running for 20-30 minutes, 5 times a week, is better than only once a week for an hour. Swimming and biking can also be substituted and are easier on the joints. You also must cut calories, and eat healthier to lose weight, and make sure not to oversleep, either.

Running Once A Week for an Hour or 20 Mins Daily? I would say that this depends largely on the intended goal. For weight loss goals, I will advocate running 20 mins daily (ideally is 3 - 4 times weekly). Frequent running has been proven to help with weight loss. It also helps to strengthen your heart, lungs, and other body systems. It also makes ...

I'm not a nutricionist so I can't answer with security question 1. Question 2, however, is a little easier for my knowledge. In theory, in hot weather you consume less calories because your body doesn't need to keep warm so hard. You know, temperature is an expression of heat, Energy = mass * (calorific constant of your body) * (temperature increase) or ...

This seems like a fairly reasonable projection, but keep in mind that as you lose fat, each pound (or kilo) of fat is harder to lose than the one before it. This means that your cut phase may slow down as you get towards the end. I wouldn't fret about this, its typical. I would also like to refer you to this article about this exact topic which I found ...

Yes, it is time to get serious about creating and living a healthy lifestyle. The way you look is the least concern of excess weight. Your risk for diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease, cancer, osteoarthritis, liver disease, reproductive problems, metabolic syndrome and sleep apnea increases as your BMI increases. Your ...
