Haha, hold on.
I'm a 22 year old male, 6 "3 and 185. What are you?
Weight bearing can even mean walking so don't worry. I'm a pretty avid cyclist, so I'm not expecting you to exercise for hours on a bike.
Cardio trains the heart and practically deletes calories. A higher intensity workout, weight lifting, biking/ running fast etc. Will build a little more muscle which will constantly burn extra calories (blob).
TBH, I never count calories and I haven't changed more than +/- 5 lbs in the last 4 years.
Look forward to your reply and what's your activity level?
Do you do any current exercises?
The # of times you go a week has more to do with your fiber intake and diet, but a boosted metabolism will process food quicker as well.
Try changing your diet. See a doctor and find out if you have any allergic reactions to a type of food. Some allergens cause bloating
Ya, lifting weights would be great. I just thought you would be turned off by the term as most girls are.
It won't make you bulky either, lighter weights with reps in the 15 to 20 range per set should get you to your goal. Try 30 minutes twice a week for 2 months and gauge your progress for results. :) Hope I helped. Any other questions?
I agree on what Lynette is saying...to a certain extent. First off, your body needs carbs. If you increase your activity in life, you need more fuel. Second, you need resistance training with weights paired with cardio. However, if you want to burn more calories, save your cardio for after your weight training. After you lift weights, do about 10 to 15 minutes of high intensity aerobic activity. Run on a treadmill, do a row machine, it doesn't matter. Get that heart rate up. There is a metabolic afterburner effect your body engages in after your cardio is done. The body burns tons of calories for hours trying to bring your body temperature back to normal. You will be burning more calories sitting back at home watching TV than you were at the gym. Pair with resistance training for fat consuming lean body mass
I have same problem, I tried everything, I burned myself on the treadmill, crash diet, weight lifting..etc. nothing worked, untill I started low carb diet (atkins diet), in a matter of month I saw significant difference. My body started consuming my own fat to generate energy, I get dizzy sometimes due to lack of sugar but this is th only thing that worked for me and I am sticking to it. Would it be the same for you? I hope you find out and let me know.
I wouldn't consider pasta and bread the kind of fiber you need. I think its too starchy, sticky. Brown rice, quinoa, steel cut oats, roughage like lettuce and raw veggies, and some fruits like pears have lots of cleansing fiber.
