If you are eating in a caloric deficit you will lose weight.period Given your stats, there is definite reason to assume you will lose weight on 1800 calories certainly if you are eating less whether it's all carbs or all fats, it makes no difference(obviously for other reasons you want to get proper amounts of macronutrients) Are you truly eating that ...

It sounds overwhelmingly likely that the caloric deficit that lead to the 3kg/2weeks was a bit too much. (For reference, caloric deficit means we consume less calories than we spend per day.) If your goal is continued weight loss, I would recommend adding some more carbohydrates to your diet. Yes, it means increasing your caloric intake, but like I said, ...

Since you're a beginner, you can get away with what most of us can only dream of now. Gaining muscle AND losing fat very quickly, for a short limited time of course or "newbie gains" as it is called. Since your body is not used to weight training stimulus at all yet, if you start following a basic weight lifting program, cut out junk food, consume adequate ...

If you've been following the same diet for all this time, it's very likely that your body has adapted and your metabolism has slowed down to cope with this. I won't give too many details here, but first of all, if you're trying to lose weight, the only times I would eat carbs would be right when you wake up, and before and after your workouts. The 2 cup ...

Can you measure your body fat percentage? This is very important because weight alone does not indicate what your are losing/gaining. Regarding the food you eat, that seems good except for the rice at each dinner : that's way too much carbs in my opinion. To lose weight more effectively, you should be very careful at what you eat before sleeping. I only ...

Assuming your diet is on point, then yes, you should change program to avoid adapting to it. Trying to lose weight is somewhat different to trying to get strong (though yes, you can do both at the same time to a certain degree). Whereas getting stronger is all about increasing the efficiency of the exercise, be it tweaks to your form or the ability to ...

If it's working for you, keep with it. The reasons for switching are generally either for novelty (keeping the same diet for a prolonged amount of time can lead to more "cheat days" because you're tired of watercress sandwiches and grapefruit smoothies, and the fun of trying something new might motivate you) or to deal with accommodation (if you're doing the ...

You will only loose weight if your eating less than your daily required amount of calories. I would work out how many calories your consuming a day, apps like my fitness pal will help with this. Then every couple of weeks reduce the total daily amount by around 100-200 calories.

I don't mean to sound rude but what you're asking leads me to believe that you haven't really done any research into this. Walking a certain EXACT amount of steps won't help with realistically anything, other than ...well counting your steps. If your goal is to lose weight, the NUMBER ONE thing you need to focus on is your diet. Given that your diet is ...

Your request is overly simplistic. That’s why you haven’t been able to find any reliable information. It’s difficult to develop the correlation you want because each of us is an individual capable of losing weight at our own individual pace. Having said that, it is still possible to lose the weight. You’ll need to set a realistic goal, and, expend more ...

Fast breathing exercises ( pranayama) I think will help for less mobile people. Ofcourse swimming is another best option, but one can do breathing exercises from ones own comfort, whenever they want with out any gadgets or special help.

A good diet. Some swimming but not swimming just be helped in water . And massage. But most important a good diet and some small exercise

This person is stubborn, but lacks determination you say. The way forward has but one milestone then, change his motivation. A stubborn person can lose a tremendous amount of weight since stubbornness is an excellent trait to avoid losing motivation. Get him motivated, formulate a plan for diet mainly. Water jogging sounds like a great idea, but first and ...

The advice no. 1 Don't do any diet on yourself, always contact an expert (if the patient have any problem related to metabolism, diabetes or other it is likely a diabetologist will not suffice, and that the patient require support from other kind of specialists) be warned: Traditional diets (even created by experts) can have side effects, in particular, ...

Just adding to other answers, which contain some good technical information re. calories. Short version: it's been very helpful to me, when feeling "not up to it", "not in the mood for it", or "too sore", to start with the exercise session regardless: once one start to warm up, the pulse rate goes up, and the sweat flows, all those feelings vanish like the ...

It requires determination and some guts to lose such a large amount of weight, but it is definitely possible. I lost ~27kg in ~5-6 months (and another 20kg 2 years before that), so he could do it in ~1.5-2 years. The most important thing is not exercise, specially at his weight, since even when doing some like water exercises (which include "acquagym" (and ...

TL/DR: Any sport (and swimming is an excellent one) will work, if done consistently, with applied hard effort and together with healthy diet and caloric deficit. No way to do it without clear goals and determination. To lose 80kg of mostly body fat, one would need 2 years focused effort, at least. It could be the one of the hardest yet most rewarding ...

The simple answer is count calories and burn more calories than consumed while still getting enough other nutrients. However since discipline is the problem the answer will need to be more personal. He needs to find his own motivating factor if not for himself then for his loved ones who want to see him live a long and healthy life.

Maintaining Weight Loss: Who is the biggest loser? Introduction There is a lot to consider when examining the impact of changing lifestyle in the short or long term with the goal of losing weight. In my answer I will compare the findings of the longitudinal study of TBL against similar clinical trials that assess the success of long term weight loss and ...

I've unwittingly done a long term experiment on myself. The answer, in my case at least, is yes. I used to weigh about 63 kg and eat about 3000 kcal/day a decade ago. Today I eat about 3800 Kcal/day and weigh 54 kg. The main change is that I increased my exercise effort, it used to be about 20 minutes of running 3 times per week, while now it is one hour of ...

Warning, wall of text incoming. Sorry, but there's a lot to look into. TL;DR at the end. Let's first take a look at what seems to influence (base) metabolic rate the most. For starters, when we look across species, there appears to be a neat relation between the average mass of a subject in that species and its metabolic rate. A linear relation, in fact, ...

Recovering from plateaus is hard because they are both frustrating and usually you have to do the opposite of what seems rational - like take a step back. When people struggle to lose more weight, they usually cut the calories more and increase running/other physical activity which actually worsens the problem. Your body goes into "starvation mode", meaning ...

Everyone reaches plateaus during their weight loss. Provided you continue to eat at a sensible deficit of calories (recommendation is between 10 and 20% of your TDEE) and are tracking them well you should start to lose weight again. As correctly explained by ddinchev, if you eat too little your body will go into "starvation mode", eating ~1000 calories ...

Generally speaking - the less food you consume through your life, the less oxidation happens (metabolic processes use oxygen and it is poisonous in a way). Less risk of cancer, less stress on liver, kidneys and heart. Also low body weight reduces the stress on joints and tissues. Having excessive body weight is correlated with many health risks. I don't have ...

It may be the luck of genetic draw, specific genetic makeup helps determine your body weight and how quickly you gain or lose pounds. Researchers studying the human genome have isolated genes that influence fat distribution and development, body mass index and appetite, reports the National Institutes of Health. Genetics play a big rule, however there are ...

Exactly. You say "not including" diet, so if you're unwilling to sacrifice calories from food then you will have to increase calories burned through exercise, and keep calorie intake the same.

The New York Times (and other media) recently reported the results of a study which followed the winners of the "Biggest Losers" weight loss reality TV show for 6 years. Most of them regained most of their weight, despite their proven willpower and knowledge, which certainly must be far above average. (Some of the neurological aspects are covered in another ...

I feel a little awkward submitting this answer as, unlike the majority of the answers above, I have no personal experience, only anecdotal. When I used to climb, there was a regular at the climbing wall who was a fantastic climber and had a below the knee prosthetic (he actually came up to a couple of us one evening and asked if anyone had an allen key he ...

To answer which one burns more calories, that's pretty straightforward math. Steady state cardio burns calories based upon intensity level x amount of calories per minute . In order to get that number you would need to know your heart rate during exercise and either have the hr monitor calculate the calories burnt totals for you or plug it in to a online ...
