If you are 4' 10 and weigh 100 pounds what is the best way to lose 5 pounds?
Right now, your BMI (Body Mass Index) is about 21. This is very much into the "healthy" range. You don't need to lose any weight. If you wanted to lose 5 pounds, try some simple things. Maybe cut out some extra calories from your diet, like don't eat ice cream or have that chocolate bar as a snack after dinner every night. Pair that up with some more exercise, like running, jogging, walking, biking, yoga, or so much more. Drink lots of water and make sure you are burning enough calories through exercise.

Answer First, think of 3 things you can cut down on that are high in calories and you know you shouldn't be eating anyway. Second, start exercising. There are no magic pills …that will keep the weight off. Zantrex works (you can get it at the local GNC), but not long term. You really need to do it the old fashioned way in order to keep the weight off and be healthy at the same time.For exercise, I recommend speed walking, Tae-bo, aerobics and other things that get you moving and stretching. You don't have to break a sweat to lose weight. Just stay active all the time, join sports, limit computer and TV....you will get there. Answer stick to the pyramid and put down those fries and exercise
Answer . It's impossible to lose 15 lbs. in 1 week. Women carry a layer of fat under the skin where men don't so men lose weight faster, but, a man couldn't lose 15 lbs. …in a week either.\n. \nIn women yeast seems to be the problem. If you give up breads, buns, or anything with yeast in it for 6 weeks NO MORE and eat at least 3 1/2 ounces of protein at each meal, lots of veggies and fruits, eat those leafy greens (good fiber and it will naturally make you have more bowel movements that are normal), drink 8 glasses of a water a day to flush out fats and toxins and exercise you get a good start on the loss of that 15 lbs. After 6 weeks without yeast gradually introduce some of it back into your diet (but don't over-do the yeast.)\n. \nThere are no magic pills for losing weight, but learning to control your own eating habits. There are pills on the market but they are not good for the body.
U can use a healthy diet to lose 100
That doesn't sound entirely safe (or more importantly healthy). Its reccomended that no more than 1-2 pounds are lost per week, so seven times that seems unfeasible and danger…ous. One pound is equal to 3500 calories. So by burning calories you shed some pounds. Your body also needs calorie intake to function, which is recommended at 2500 for men, and 2000 for women (depending on your source). To reduce your calorie intake is suggested by a maximum of 1000 calories. So your body will still have something to run on. If it is too much less than this then your body goes into starvation mode clinging to every calorie its got, so you won't lose anything. I find time and budget as an issue, so walking is my thing. Weighing 225 pounds means you can burn about 500 to 600 calories by just walking around for 2 hours...that can be going for a stroll through the park or going for some retail therapy. Now, if you were to do that once a day for a week, you'd only just burn through that 3500 calories for that one pound in that week. Assuming you've been eating relatively healthily that is. If you were to go for more rigorous exercise and step up to the losing 2 pounds a week (or potentially a bit more...even though its ill advised), you'd still be looking at 7 weeks. I would advise setting a realistic (but challenging) goal of losing that 15 pounds in 2-3 months through healthy eating and good old fashioned exercise.
Walk, walk and walk some more and drink LOTS of water! I went from being over 300 pounds down to 200 in a year just by walking. It's pure weight loss. When you do workout vide…os you gain muscle weight which in return makes you feel like you're not doing anything because you're still the same size. It took me a while to figure that one out. Dieting on top of the walking helps out. But the longer it takes for you to lose the weight the longer it'll stay off. Experience once again. Always be happy with who you are. Don't let anyone say otherwise. It didn't take you a day to put on all that weight, so it's not going off over night. Good luck!
It's excellent that you want to do this. I have a friend doing the exact same thing, and she is losong. I am not a nutritionist but have studied foods and how they affect us. …I lost 50+ lbs in 3 1/2 months by doing the stuff below. (And it stayed off! I weighed 170lbs to start with) This is what I advised her to do.. Firstly, don't consider that you're going on a "diet", but rather, understand that from now on you are CHANGING your diet (your WAY of eating) - from an unhealthy one to a HEALTHY one. This has to be seen as a "change for life" otherwise, as soon as you've lost weight, if you go back to your old ways, the weight WILL return. It's simple, you have to adapt a new way of eating.. You need to cut right down on fatty foods (fried foods, crackers, take-outs, cheese, chocolate, dairy etc) Cutting OUT is good if you can, but substituting some for their low-calorie alternatives is easier if you find it hard to go without. But still try to limit the amount of dairy and fats because this is still where most of your excess body fat would have come from.. Unfortunately there are things that you should avoid. It's easy to remember, if it's fatty or very high in sugar you need to avoid it as much as you can. You are what you eat, it's true!. Drink at least 8-to-10 glasses of water a day, and try and substitute snacks and the odd meal here and there with fruit and/or salad. (Watch the salad dressing though!). Water will help flush your system, and eliminate toxins and wastes which accumulate in the body. These toxins can make you feel sluggish, tired, unwell and lower your immunity. Water is VERY important. It also helps the food to go through quicker, and thus you tend to lose more calories.. Try and walk every day (even if it's 5 minutes to start with because you will get better at it) Doing anything that gets you moving is going to help. Keeping active makes your metabolism work better and faster and actually causes your body to "eat up" calories much quicker. It can even keep your metabolism up for hours after you've exercised, which helps you "burn-up" the calories from the next meal you're going to eat too!. Try not to eat carbohydrates after noon, as any un-used calories from carbohydrates (breads, pastas, potatoes, rice etc) will deposit themselves as fat on your body. If you eat these earlier in the day you will most likely uses those calories up through the activities that you do for the rest of the day.. When I want to lose weight I just eat fresh fruit and drink water and can lose 5 kg (10 lbs) in a week, and I am about 140 lb.. My friend was the same weight as you (just a few years younger) and has changed the way she eats. It's been about 6 months and she has lost about 25 lbs. She would have lost at least twice that (according to the nutritionist doctor that put her on her "diet") if she had done the walking and moderate exercise that he kept stressing to her to do, but she didn't, so I strongly recommend that you do that! You will lose it much faster if you keep active, and it gets easier every day.. Good on you for wanting to help yourself - I hope you have success!

If you're 5'10" and 145 lbs you don't need to lose 10 lbs. Suggested weight for a 5'10" woman is 150 lbs. If you lose any more weight you might be losing muscle mass and not f…at.

Catch a really bad wasting disease.. 100 pounds in 4 months is entirely unrealistic if you wish to remain healthy and to reach a sustainable result. Hope for something like 2… pounds/week instead, which you can reach w/o risking your health and on a diet that'll look pretty much like regular food.
I would say it depends on how you diet and how active you are. A few years ago I lost 45 pounds in 10 weeks. I'm 5'7" & at the start I weighed 193 lbs & got under 150 lbs at t…he end. I stayed on a relatively strict diet keeping carb grams at or under 65 per day , ate a lot of proteins & balanced everything out over 6 meals per day. At any one meal, my protein intake did not exceed 3 oz. A key to my success is that I also am a very active swimmer and worked out vigorously in the pool for an hour, about 5 to 6 days per week. I also occasionally did a treadmill workout trying to keep my heart rate at about 65% of maximum for a prolonged period of time. On this I eventually worked up to 1 hour sessions. Even walking is a good way to burn calories . I was often hungry & if I wanted to cheat, I ate some kind of small portion of protein. If you are inclined to cheat, stay away from breads, cheese etc as these are very good at defeating any diet, but my cheating was minimal and, as I got into the diet, my periods of being hungry lessened. That all said, my guess on losing 110 lbs might be a good 6 months or more if you stay focused on the diet, don't cheat, & get some kind of regular exercise for an hour, 5 or 6 days per week. The upside is, if you do it, how much fun it is to fit into smaller cloths. When my weight is down, I also look younger - an added benefit for someone in their 50's. Also - I am diabetic, have high blood pressure, & high cholesterol - I take daily medication for each of these. With the weight off, my medication doses are reduced or even eliminated - all a good thing.

Forget about it, unless you sign up for liposuction. Any weight loss at that rate will be mostly fluid lost, which you are likely to put right back on once you go back to a …normal diet.
Let it take time. You didn't put it on overnight, so don't expect to shed it overnight. You need a lifestyle change, and it takes time fo new, healthier habits to form. But if… you stick with something like weightwatchers you should be able to do it within two years. Bottom line is that you need to control what you eat, the foods we have available today are so high in energy that it's really easy to overeat.
The only way you can lose 10 pounds in a week is but cutting out 35,000 calories a week, which is almost impossible. Because there are 3500 calories in one pound that means yo…u have to starve for a week and burn 10,500 calories in that week. So, that goal is pretty impossible because by the third day you would probably feel like you are about to faint or actually faint while working out. You would not have the energy required. A more reachable goal is 10 pounds in a month. You could work out for about a hour every day in that month and cut down your calorie intake to about no more than 1500 calories a day. This would be hard but perhaps not unreachable.
