    I would like to know what you guys think is the best way to lose fat. Everyone has their own way, would you please share it with everyone. Hearing how someone else does it can help you in your journey of dropping those pounds and body fat.

      Everyone has different ways that work better for them, when it comes to dieting.

      Due to my 30 year battle with an eating disorder, taking dieting advice from me would not be the wisest of ideas.  But, after many years of working on my disease, I can tell you this...


      I have found that managing my weight (in a healthy fashion) is much easier to do by starting my day with a healthy breakfast.

        I totally agree with you - breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Good luck with everything!

      The answer is simple -- either eat less or exercise more. Full stop.

      One pound of fat = 3,500 calories. So...to lose one pound per week, you need to either eat 3,500 calories less per week or burn off 3,500 calories through exercise -- or a combination of both.

      It doesn't make a different weightloss-wise whether it's low-carb, low-fat, high-protein or whatever. It's all about the calories.

        It is all about the calories. Low fat foods contain less calories than fattier foods, so they are a better choice.

        Doing exercise that maximizes your calorie burn will help with burning more fat. Weight training is one of those exercises that helps you burn the most calories and fat.  When you train with weights regularly, you boost your metabolism so that you even burn calories in your sleep and also for up to 48 hours after your training. This makes weight training the best exercise. But to burn off excess calories cardio exercises also have to be included with weight training.

      yup. never skip breakfast. Get plenty of vegetables during lunch and have a habbit of drinking herb tea. Away from snacks. Eat light dinner with herb tea and go to bed early. I gain weight when I get married and adobt the American Style of living and eating. After 3 years I noticed that my clothes size were becoming bigger and bigger until I can't even wear jeans anymore. I stopped baking , stopped using frozen foods even vegetables and went back to the Japanese Food Style and never eat with spoon and fork instead use my chopsticks. Niw I am back with my cocktail dress and my jeans size went down to size 4-5. And I feel great.

        It's a scientific fact... To burn 1 pound of fat you have to expend 3600 calories!!! There is no getting away from it, it doesn't matter what diet you do.

        To burn fat you have to eat less sugar. The more sugar you eat the more insulin is created. The more insulin in your blood stream the less fat can be burnt. Thats why insulin is also known as the 'fat producing hormone', it acts a 'blocker' to fat cells.
