Question: I am 24 years old I am 130 pounds and just under 5ft 2 inches tall. I know I over eat all the time. I will eat all day and every time I eat I will eat until I am so full, that I feel full in my throat. But lately I have been noticing that I will still eat all day, but now I can't eat as much for some reason. Like before when I would go to a restaurant I would be able to eat everything I ordered,. but now it's like I eat a few bites and I will be full. I don't exercise and I sleep all the time in between eating. Even though I am not overweight and I am still thin in my body shape. I know I am over eating. I was watching this anorexic movie and one of the girls said one way she ate less was by taking a drink of water after every bite of food. So that way her stomach was full of mostly water. I don't want to be anorexic but I do want to lose some weight because even though I am not overweight, I still am at the point where I feel heavier than I am and walking up stairs makes me tired. This is what I have planned to get me to eat less, do you think this is a healthy enough way for me to lose weight. I while drink lots of water with every meal. I will eat less junk food. Eat more veggies and salad. Try going on more walks outside. Drink water all the time. Because I don't drink enough water and water also keeps you hydrated. And most important I will try not to eat before going to bed. I am always eating lots of food right before bed. So do you think this is a healthy enough way for me to eat less but still be healthy? What other tips can you give me on what I can eat that will make me feel fuller? Also how many calories should I be having every day? I probably eating way to many calories. I am 24 years old, 130 pounds and just under 5ft 2inches tall.

Losing 10 lbs a month is a good and safe target. Any faster weight loss is likely to be temporary only and in most cases you regain it all. Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, squats, brisk walking and power walking all help for weight loss but dieting helps more. One of the healthiest weight loss diets is the DASH diet. The healthy DASH diet can help you lose weight safely and effectively, lower your cholesterol and lower your blood pressure. It is based on an eating plan rich in fruits and vegetables, and low-fat or non-fat dairy, with whole grains. It is a high fiber, low to moderate fat diet, and is rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium. You can see further details in a web search for "dash diet" + "lose weight".

Yes, 1-2 pounds is a healthy and obtainable goal. You might lose more some weeks and not as much on other weeks, but do not be discouraged because even a quarter pound weight loss is equivalent to a stick of butter! Watch your calorie intake and portion size and start moving! Walk, walk, walk...you might also want to add some resistance training. Check out the Weight Watchers website. They are full of useful information and recipe ideas.

A healthy and lasting weight loss is something you could have if you follow the right plan. This plan has two main elements: - Change your actual lifestyle to a healthy lifestyle with which you can keep your ideal weight after your weight loss. - Boosting your weight loss, to see results in short time, even though you're in a state of no progress or plateau.

Don't expect instant results and if you're looking in a mirror you won't find the weight loss there either though you will be. It's harder for us to recognize weight loss in ourselves. Also I've heard that if you eat less in a meal and increase the meals you eat. It has something to do with it being similar to why a bear stores fat in the winter. Our bodies were adapted over time to store fat because before technology we had scarce food because we had to catch it and so we hold fat to help ease between meals. Also it's winter, studies have shown we just retain weight in winter. No B.S. search it up yourself. Hope this helps but I just recommend that you run as much as you can and do some weightlifting with light dumb bells like 5 lbs or so and just do the exercises till you can't do no more. And remember, there is no "targeting" an area. Fat comes off of all body parts equally at first. So if lets say you wanted to target your thighs, your arms and stomach would lose weight too. So go for an all around approach to expedite your results. Hope this helps.
