As mentioned in yisrael's answer and Aequitas' comment, you're gonna need to track your calorie intake. Combining a caloric deficit by diet with exercise is going to be a lot easier than just doing one. Without exercise you may find that eating little enough for the deficit can leave you too hungry or make it hard to resist sneaking in some extra food, while ...

In order to lose weight you need to be in a caloric deficit; meaning you expend more energy from the combination of your daily activity plus exercise than you eat. If you are not tracking both your intake and your output, you will have no way of knowing if you are doing 'enough' to lose weight. There are many calculators online that can assist you with ...

I don't believe that you'll find better research on the subject currently. Here's why: Until very recently, there was such a strong taboo in the medical community against acknowledging hormonal impacts (other than thyroid hormone deficit or overproduction) on basal metabolic rate (BMR) that nobody could get studies funded on it. People like me with ...

A problem with hypothyroidism is that you cannot fully correct for it. While you can bring your thyroid hormone levels back to the normal range, a person with a normal functioning thyroid will have small fluctuations in the level of thyroid hormones due to changes in energy demands causing a feedback on the metabolism. E.g. exercising hard for a few days ...

Well you didn't talk about your diet, which is the largest contributing factor to your body fat. What you eat, and how much you eat, is the biggest component of your body fat far beyond whatever you do with exercise. Get your diet sorted out as a priority. Your time at the gym sounds like it could have been better spent. I'd recommend adhering to a proven ...

My tip is... see a doctor. And if you did and they didn't really find anything, consider a second opinion. Really, there are so many possible causes of this that just giving you some tips is unlikely to solve it. And because the underlying cause might be a serious issue, it would be irresponsible of me or anyone who isn't a health professional to give you ...

In order to increase muscle mass, your body must be forced to adapt. A state of balance is called homeostasis. The essence for inducing a strength and/or hypertrophy increase requires disrupting homeostasis. The way we do this with strength training is by lifting weights in a manner that exceeds what our body is adapted to. There's a number of ways to do ...

I disagree with the Tom Gray's answer. Don't follow the meal plan. Everybody is different, and have different needs. You have to build a meal plan that can help you with your need. This meal plan can be perfect for someone, or (more likely) really inappropriate for someone who have some sportive activity. Just to add some advice for your problem : Don't ...

Every clinical trial involving weight loss shows the same results, where people lose weight for up to 6 months and then start to regain from that point. It is commonly believed that weight is regained because people start increasing calories. In fact, as the A-Z trial shows, and as you already know from experience, when people get on the scale and find that ...

Let's look at the two most prominent nutrients found in lemons that could play a role. These are vitamin C, and citric acid. Lemons are rich in vitamin C. One fruit will deliver from 50% to 75% of the daily recommended amount, depending on the size of the lemon. That's nice, because it is an essential nutrient; humans can't synthesize it in their bodies. ...

Excusme in advance for adding an answer instead of a comment. I can not add comments yet and I could not resist to give a different point of View. Why gym? Why weight lifting? Do you like such routine? There're thousand ways to lose weight and to carrie a healthy life. Is there any sport or physical activity that you like? Football? Basketball? Tennis? ...

There is nothing specific which will cause you to lose weight. Being in a caloric deficit will do that. Amy exercise that helps you lose weight is simply because it puts you in a caloric deficit meaning you are burning more calories than you are taking in. Is 15 minutes of any exercise really enough to put you in a major deficit that would cause significant ...

There are countless personal factors, such as your genetics, current fitness level, past exercise and daily habits, that will determine your total daily energy expenditure (TDEE). The calculators don't, and can't, take all of those into account. They can provide a decent ballpark figure, but that's about it. So instead, I suggest you simply take the ...

There will always be many formulas out there and no one here is going to provide you with a more authoritative formula. That being said they don't differ that much and you should be OK with any formula for weight loss for the whole being. Once you get closer to your weight loss goal you may need to fine tune it. It sounds like you are trying to lose 2 ...
