Trying to lose 50 pounds. Need workout ideas and diet ideas. Anyone have any advice?
Cut out carbs, especially after two p.m. Replace sweets with healthy snacks like fruit and nuts. What helped me was going vegetarian. You need to be careful and watch your iron and protein intake (I used iron supplements) but it definitely produces a change.
Cardio is your best bet for burning excess calories and fat and you can do it pretty much daily. Yoga is also good for tone and flexibility. If you can take a bikram yoga class, all the better.
Make sure to vary your workouts to prevent your body from getting too comfortable with your routine.
Most importantly, start slow with your workouts. You won't see results overnight, so don't get frustrated and push yourself too far. Give your muscles time to recover.
