Answer: the best way...don't starve your body. if you do that, then you start eating more, your body will store fat as insurance against the next time you starve it. THIS CAN MAKE YOU FATTER LATER!!! Plus, you will only lose a couple fatty pound in 3 to 4 weeks. The best thing to do is avoid fast food altogether for 5 weeks. Instead, make sure to eat all natural, healthy food and regular small meals. Make sure to include some protein (i.e. eggs or peanut butter) in your breakfast, your body uses this most for fuel. Include fruit with your lunch, every little bit helps. Instead of snacking on chips and cookies, choose veggie baked crackers or an apple or other favorite fruit. This will keep you fuller longer and has less fat in than the other stuff. For dinner, you want to make the serving sizes small unless you plan to go exercise right after dinner. Make sure to include each of the basics: pasta or rice, sauce (like alfredo or pesto), veggies, and meat. (eating fried stuff will make weight harder to lose) Finally, pick three regular exercise days per week and reserve 20 minutes for each workout. I chose winsor pilates because it is low impact, but you may choose any routine you are comfortable with. 20 minutes each, three times a week is all you need, though if you wish, you may do more days per week. Don't overstress yourself by doning more than 20 minutes at a time. You will get tired and have more cravings if you do. The cure for cravings: allow yourself to have it, but only a small amount. You just have to exercise self control. Control your craving, don't let it control you. This method takes some dedication, but you will be more likely to keep the weight off. This is what I did and I have three children and I still wear a size 6-8. AnswerProbably very quickly but 500 calories is way too low. You will be literally starving yourself which can lead to problems worse than your weight. You might try a 1000 to 1200 calorie diet that is low in fat. Make sure you read labels and avoid saturated fats. For example, 1 (one) frozen burrito has more fat than you should eat in two days. Eat smart and be aware of what and how much you eat. I tried the six very small meals a day (1200 calories)diet and I lost about 15 pounds in 2 months and I wasn't at all hungry. Also, if you are a very active person, you may need more calories to maintain your energy. If you are not active, you may try walking or low impact excercises to help with weight loss. Good Luck:) Answeri eat 400-500 cals a day. (well im bulimic but please don't throw up this meal u need it) to help control myself from binging, i don't think about eating or any kind of food. chew a lot of sugar-free minty gums (only like 5 cals). They keep u full and make u feel like u r eating a snack. And sleep a LOT. this makes the day go by quicker and keeps u away frm the kitchen. I lose about 15-18 lbs. every 2 months by doing this. Depends on how much u exercise. (Exercise while u still have energy frm that meal) AnswerIn 1988, Oprah ate only 400-500 calories in liquid form per day for 4 months and lost 67 pounds, however, she also kept a staff with her at all times in case something should go wrong, and ended up in the hospital from passing out. She also gained 17 of those pounds back immediately after returning to a normal diet. My highest weight was 180 lbs (5'9"), and after eating 500-600 cals in HEALTHY foods every day, I was able to loose 10 pounds in about 3 weeks. AnswerLook at your activity level. Some of us have efficient systems and so need to get the metabolism going so it works to use up the calories taken in every day. Take a 30 minute walk in the morning and do some other type of exercise in the afternoon/evening. Look up the diet for diabetics (very good explanation of carbs and protein), watch your portions and be sure to chew each and every bite of food thoroughly. There's no shortcuts that will really work for the long term unless you make these lifetime changes. Even if you lose 10 pounds you have come a long way to general health.

If you weigh 130 pounds and you want to weigh 122 how many calories should you eat?

This depends on how soon you want to lose this weight. You want to lose 8 pounds. In caloric terms, one pound is 3,500 calories. That means that you need to lose 28,000 calories to lose 8 pounds.It is important that you don't try to lose weight too fast. If you do, your body has many mechanisms to "fool" you - it may go into starvation mode, in which it restricts its own processes in order to conserve calories. The way you can get around this is to lose weight at a healthy and steady pace.A good benchmark is to not lose more than about 2 pounds per week. Two pounds means 7,000 fewer calories, which means you would need to eat 1,000 fewer per day at the most. At this pace, you would have your new body in a mere 4 weeks! Adding a healthy amount of exercise to your daily routine can also aid in your weight loss goals.

If you weigh 195 lbs and are 5'5 how fast will you lose weight if you eat only 170 calories a day?

Saying you don't exercise, and have a base (meaning you burn them just by existing, per day) of 2000 calories burned, you'll lose 6.5 pounds at least the first week. Possibly more, possibly less, depending again on your base.That is NOT healthy, and your body could go into starvation mode, which will make it more difficult to lose the weight. Try between 500-700 calories a day.. that's 2.5 pounds a week, which is fine.
