    Do you want to lose weight? If yes then enter here: (OP)




    I am making this thread to help and motivate the brothers and sisters who want to lose weight.. I realize many of you actually want to pack on some pounds so this isn't for you..

    This is how we'll start:

    you click on this link:

    http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm

    enter your weight height etc. and it will let you know how many calories you ought to be having per day.

    two

    portion control

    you can use this link:

    http://www.thecaloriecounter.com/

    enter the food you are having and don't exceed it in caloric intake..
    Now I wouldn't advise losing more than a pound a week but some of you might opt for two. Please be mindful that even though your body will breakdown your fat reserves to make up for the deficit it will also breakdown muscle and I won't get into the biochem of that perhaps one of those who newly entered medical school can wow us by listing their fatty acid synthesis and breakdown cycle but we are not interested in that for the purposes of this thread unless you really want to be convinced, know that your body on daily basis has to use energy to filter your waste, detoxify you and pump your tissues full of O2 amongst thousands of other physiological and biochemical pathways..

    so to cut down all the mumbo jumbo this is about all you need a diary:

    So you wake up and document what you have had I'd also advise a food scale for those of you awful at guesstimating with a single serving is but if you are not then you just put down everything and calculate:

    for instance today I had 225 calories for breakfast broken down to:

    One English Muffin 120 calories
    one Pastrami slice 30 calories
    one slice of american cheese 55 calories
    one coffee with coffee mate 20 calories
    taking the total to 225 for breakfast

    Dinner (or lunch) depending on your perspective I had
    1/4 cup white beans with tomato sauce 198 calories
    Indian fried rice 221 calories
    taking my dinner total to 419 calories for a total of 644 consumed

    the last meal of the day I'll probably have cereal but you get the picture my daily caloric intake doesn't exceed 1200 (and as I said you can determine that using the scale above) so I have 556 calories left on my scale which I guess I can also have a snack a banana or something if I want..
    _________________________________

    so if you want to carry on this thread at the end of the week you can report your energy level and weight loss (or not)

    Re: Do you want to lose weight? If yes then enter here:

    heres a recipe to get FAT:

    BREAKFAST!!! (eat 2 hrs after waking in which time eat nothing)
    2-3 toasts with fish fingers, beans, whatever (you can have jam but youll be missing out on calories) = approx 250 calories (or your normal hot breakfast)
    now 400ml of whole milk + 2 raw eggs + banana + 2-3 table spoons of white sugar + BLENDER = (according to my calculations) 656 calories

    for a grand total of approx 1000 calories. MashAllah thats 40% of a normal persons eating done with the first meal. bear in mind eating until you feel sick is makruh, so you can break this down over 2 meals inshallah.

    make sure you eat the toast first because the milkshake tends to go down no problem. but if you drink the shake 1st you may have trouble eating the proper meal.

    now here are good foods for calories and protein : fried chicken, nuts like almonds and peanuts, potatoes (even chips but make sure they are almost 100% potato), rice, roti + boti (or paratha + boti) lol, baked beans, pizza.

    bear in mind for a normal person this is a pretty unhealthy diet, but for my guy abdul majid it may be what hes been lookin 4. CONSUME AT UR OWN RISK

    Is it possible to 'control' from which part of your body you lose weight? Some people are fat from the upper body, some lower body, some from the hands or face etc.

    Re: Do you want to lose weight? If yes then enter here:



    firstly this is no diet, I have already stated that that I don't believe in diets, it is about eating all you want in moderation.. so get a food scale like this one:


    or a digital one



    they are cheap I have one for $6.00 from ebay.. I just put chicken, meat whatever and see how many oz. I enter is into my machine and it tells me how many calories it is, believe me it is much cheaper than joining any program.. all you need it motivation. I'd also advise getting an excellent bathroom scale and weighing your progress weekly. Don't over do it or under do it. Simply because the physiology of your body will not be able to handle the strain.. your heart for starters needs energy to pump your blood across all day, you don't want to be deprived to end up with headaches and lethargy and then death.. that goes for both weight loss and weight gain.. everything must be gradual and there is absolutely no medical need to lose more than a pd. a week.

    If you have a metabolic disorder you need to consult a dietitian to see which foods to use and which oils.. sometimes people can't break down long chain fatty or have MCAD and need to be on a high carb diet with supplementation with
    L-Carnitine
    all those variations need a proper consultation .. your body IS a chemical factory so don't experiment like an amateur, KNOW what you are doing.

    Also unfortunately you can't control which portion to lose weight from first, and most tend to lose it from areas they'd like to keep, so if you don't want to lose the weight and be hanging skin over bones then please follow through with light exercise I recommend resistance bands for starters they are no more than $10-$15 bucks at amazon.com or .co.uk

    and do exercises like this for starters just for muscle tone:









    they come in different resistance from light to extreme:

    you type into youtube resistance band exercises and it will show you exercises for legs for arms for thighs for women for men.. it doesn't have to take more than 5 minutes to start and then you can gradually increase your workout..
    you have to just want this and not think of it as a diet rather a healthier life style..

    To a certain level; yes, but its very difficult. The best option is to lose it at a slow and reasonably steady pace. A doctor may be able to shed some light on this, fat is easier to burn off from the abdominal region; even when thats not the main focus of a particular exercise.

    Re: Do you want to lose weight? If yes then enter here:

    The only way to control the fat deposition in a particular region is to get regional liposuction.. and even that isn't without its complications and outside of complications artistry.. you may get 10cc more from one thigh as opposed to the other and end up all lopsided looking.. there is only one correct way to do this.. gradual and consistent... eventually your body type will be the same only a smaller version of itself.. if you were always apple shaped you'll maintain your apple shape in a smaller ratio. if you were pear shaped you'll continue being pear shaped, if you were hour glass you'll be a better hour glass.. your body shape is dictated by your genetics, obesity for the most part and outside of very rare endocrine disorders is dictated by your life style and eating habits..

    Re: Do you want to lose weight? If yes then enter here:

    what to do when you start feeling like crap a few days into your new life style?

    It isn't uncommon to feel lousy, unlike yourself and even come down with flu like symptoms. If you are doing too much too fast that is even more of a palpable problem than those with gradual change. Your body is by now used to artificial colors and flavorings, high sodium, inverted sugars and it is going through withdrawal.. food can be a drug like any other drug.. you dump so much crap in it for years and all of a sudden it becomes confused.. this is the moment when most people lapse into their old habits. they feel like they are going to die. Well you aren't at least not quite yet (we are all going to die anyway) but not from eating healthy. As stated this problem can be avoided if you have a gradual decrease for instance if you are accustomed to 2400 calorie diet don't all of a sudden go down to 1300 calories.. try to decrease by two hundred calories and stick with that for a week or two, then another 100 and stick with that for a week or two. Remember NOT to go below your nutritional needs (your body simply needs this fuel and nutrients to function) so depriving yourself means heart problems, kidney problems, all kinds of problems.

    If you followed the recipe to a T and still feel like crappola then it is good to pay your old doctor another visit and discuss it, maybe there is something else going on, but just give it a week first to see if the symptoms resolve..

    Many people quit simply for that reason alone, like quitting smoking or drugs, your body tells you what it needs and you obey it.. this time around you tell your body what it needs and it has to obey you!

    I can barely drink a cup of tea in the morning never mind eat 2-3 toasts?! Like someone said in this thread, its probably harder to gain weight then to lose it as generally people who want to pack on some pounds have a poor appetite

    Great thread Vales lily

    anyone to report their caloric intake today can be day 1 if you want to join.

    I have cheated today from the cutoff point of 1200 and had 1461 calories, yesterday I had 834 so today I indulged.. good to not give the exact same caloric intake everyday and I don't recommend that any female go below 1250 or male below 1500 without direct medical supervision.

    You can tone different parts of the body by doing exercise for those parts of the body, like bench press, sit ups, etc. A good book that gives you an exercise routine is Body for Life (I think that's what it's called.) the book recommends doing exercise for the upper body three times a week and for the lower body + abdomen exercise three times a week. you can also try online websites like ediets.com and efitness.com which show you which exercise to do to tone various parts of the body.

    Re: Do you want to lose weight? If yes then enter here:

    Masha Allah, I just joined this forum and I find this thread lol.

    I'm currently on my own mission of losing weight as well and have been doing so quite successfully through a calorie deficit diet and exercise.

    Runaway: Is it possible to 'control' from which part of your body you lose weight? Some people are fat from the upper body, some lower body, some from the hands or face etc.

    Ans: No there is no such thing as Spot Fat removal, all we can do is lose the weight. The part of our body which loses the weight is up to our body. However as muhaba mentioned, you can still do weight training to tone up.

    Best recipe for losing weight fast:
    A healthy calorie deficit diet
    Daily cardio
    Daily weight training

    A calorie deficit diet will get your body to use the energy that is already stored in you as fat/muscle.

    A minimum of an hour of cardio and weight training should be sufficient if you want to lose weight quick and healthily.

    The cardio will help you in using up the energy in your body, the weight training will help you build muscle which will increase your metabolism.


    I recently hit a plateau from my diet, which meant that whatever I tried I could not lose the weight. I did some research and found out that the calorie deficit in my diet was too big, which sparked a starvation response from my body.

    My body, thinking I was in a dangerous starving situation, reprogrammed itself into needing less energy in a day. So even though I was eating the same amount, my body was using up less calories. So what I did was I took a break from my diet, ate a calorie maintaining diet for a week to get my metabolism back to regular rate. Now I'm starting the diet again, perhaps this time with not such a big calorie deficit.

    Good luck to all my brothers and sisters who want to lose weight!
    Salaamualaikum

    Im not sure what just happened I think I accidentally deleted 2 posts I just posted. Strange.. I was just clicking the different icons to see what it does.

    I guess i should start again

    I am aiming for at least a 500 calorie deficit this time, though I am still learning how to actually count the calories in what I eat Are you losing weight as well glo? Or are you just into keeping fit?

    Wow I just found out that I posted the messages in my "Introduction" thread, how silly of me. Ill just copy and paste them here..

    I haven't calculated my TDEE of my new weight and to be honest even when I had too big of a calorie deficit I wasn't really counting calories. I was just eating small portions 6 times a day. Its embarrassing but I dont quite understand how to calculate the amount of calories I'm eating. Even after looking at the nutritional labels lol. I just know that the recommended calorie deficit is 500 less than your TDEE. But I dont know what is 500 calories less, is that like minus one fish?

    If I am not mistaken,
    1 gram of carb/protein is 4 calories correct?
    1 gram of fat is 12 calories.
    So if I want to know the amount of calories in a food, I have to add the total grams of what im eating and multiply by the amount of calories they are? Is this how you calculate calories?

    I'm not really losing weight, Hulk, although I am of an age when it is worth keeping an eye on it!
    I have been blessed with being tall and slim, although as I get older my weight tries to creep up - so I have times when I keep it in check. If ever I feel the need to lose weight, it is usually only 3 or 4 pounds, because I don't allow my weight to go up any higher.

    Since I have had my children my BMI has ranged from 20 to 23. At the moment it is 21. I'm more that happy with that.
