    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:

    What has worked really well for me to lose weight in a couple of months (went from 80 to 70) was to cut mainly on carbs. I used to drink a lot of soda and pretty much loved everything with sugar, but I started eating and drinking a little healthier and along with excersize, the pounds flew off. Im pretty convinced that eating healthy and excersize should be sufficient.

    or you could do it yourself with this formula:


    Women’s BMR:
    655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) - minus (4.7 x age in years)

    you certainly don't want to lose inches from your height .. fact is when you lose weight if you're not exercising at the same time, some of your skin will sag especially morbidly obese people.. they can just have pounds of sagging skin it is very sad.. so it is best to do both for a healthy life style both eating right and exercising.
    this guy (see pix) unfortunately isn't an uncommon side effect of weight loss after a roux en Y .. so I personally don't believe in quick fixes.. the answer would be you want both at the same time, the pounds with the inches, you want Muscle tone along with a healthy body..

    ameen ya rabb.. maintaining a good weight is excellent.. I mean I hope that is what people at least take out of this thread.. it is ok to pig out every now and then, but many people make pigging out an everyday thing and then unable to turn that off and it becomes their normal...

    I started doing 10 minutes of toning exercises most mornings last summer, and I have found that they work really well.
    I haven't lost any weight, but have lost some inches, especially around waist and hips.

    I found this muslimah fitness site, which might be helpful.
    It contains exercise videos demonstrated by a hijabi - so there is no need to look at scantily clad women.

    lol it doesnt really have to be an academic fashion


    but yes consistency.


    for example just jog half an hour each day, i guarantee weight loss so long as you dont eat more then 4 times a day and eat 2 plates at each sitting .


    besides ive noticed that the more i exercise the less hungry i feel.

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

    eating healthy can be addictive. once you start eating healthy, that's what you will love doing. the important thing is to change your lifestyle and start eating healthily. don't go on a diet as diets make you feel like you are restricting your self. you wait for the time when you can eat like you used to before you started dieting and that only causes failure. eventually you are back to the way you were eating and gain all the weight you struggled so hard to lose, which makes you feel worse than when you started.

    so the best thing to do is to change your lifestyle. eat healthier and include some snack daily (the cheat). this way you won't feel like you are restricting yourself.

    eating less is even important islamically. many verses that tell us to eat the good things and avoid the bad (haram) stuff then tell us not to waste stuff, and overeating is wasting food. (see ch. 7, Al-Araf for one such verse).

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

    Assalamu Alaikum

    I got a couple of questions:

    1. Do fat cells break down and exit our body, or do they just shrink? I was taught by an anatomy teacher that they shrink, which I guess would make sense for why people would gain weight so fast if they return to their old habits, but on the other hand if that were the case, how would one get rid of them completely without the use of liposuction?

    2. Is there a healthy way to lose weight quickly (more than 2lbs a week) if one did vigorous exercise and ate sufficient calories so that they don't lose muscle mass rather than fat and even be able to gain a little muscle?

    ^don't try to lose too much weight, you will only fail. just try to eat more healthily and insha-Allah you'll be able to lose weight gradually.

    i myself fell off track the past few days and started eating too much. but insha-Allah i'll be watching what i eat as well as lowering the amount of tea i drink. in winter hot tea is delicious however i've noticed that tea makes you eat more, so lowering how much tea one drinks will insha-Allah help lower appetite.

    fi aman allah
    w'salaam
    Salaam,

    1. Adipocytes (fat cells) just like any other cell in the body can break down. However fat cells are unique in that they have a large store of lipids in them. Think of a large balloon filled with water, you would have to release all the water before getting rid of the balloon itself. However I don't really see how this is relevant to losing fat. Think of your body fat as a pool of body fat. In other words you cannot spot reduce fat from one portion of the body. Doing one hundred arm exercises is not only going to target the fat in your arms but will also target fat stored in other parts of the body. That is why it is more efficient to do exercises that utilize the larger muscle groups at the same time (compound exercises).

    2. That depends on where your starting at. Try focusing on improving a few things at a time that you can sustain consistently. A little goes a long way if your consistent.
