Will I lose the wieght?
An_252328 posted:
Hello, I just had a question for you guys. I am 5"3 female and have been dieting lately. I would like to lose about 15 lbs. I've tried super strict dieting but it won't last long. So I'm trying the recommended fitness plan from this site (1,050 calories a day). I am also lightly active. Do you think that over a year or so I could lose this weight by dieting this way?

Are you kidding? If you really just want to lose 15 lbs it should only take you two months or so before it is gone. Good luck!

An_2328, welcome.
As far as the food planner goes, it's great, but don't forget that it's a food AND FITNESS planner. Diet and exercise go hand in hand for any lasting weight loss. Get in the habit now because you'll be upping your exercise output from now on.

It's easy. Just like a walk in the park. In fact, that's exactly what I suggest to everyone, a daily walk. One to three miles, depending on your time constraints. It doesn't have to be 3 miles all at once. Walking is walking. If you split it up it's still exercise.
If you work, park as far away from your jobsite as possible. If you are above street level, take the stairs. EVERY TIME.

If you switch to whole , non processed foods, cook at home so you know exactly what is IN your foods and just up your exercise output a bit, there is no reason you shouldn't be able to hit your goal within 3 months. That's even including a small plateau or two. ... Average recommendation of the MOST to lose is 2 lbs a week, healthfully. Any more than that and you are robbing your body of nutrients.

As Judy says, nutrition is key. Feed your body what it needs, don't starve it for anything. It's so much nicer to do it slowly and get it right. To eat like you really can and SHOULD and NOT have to starve. You'll see.
