First step in exercise is to always Think FIT. To make physical improvements, you need to work your body harder than usual. This is referred to as the overload principle. As your body becomes more conditioned, you need to increase the frequency, intensity, or time of your workouts in order to continue improving your fitness level

Choosing an Exercise:

The best exercise is an activity that you enjoy enough to really pursue enthusiastically.

• Indoor (Facility) Activities: If the treadmill, stairmaster, rowing machine or stationery cycle doesn't excite you, sample some group activities that strike your fancy. Participate in a group cycling class, beat stress with yoga, find balance with martial arts, stay cool with indoor swimming, or kick some you-know-what with boxaerobics.

1. Change your eating habits (i.e. start eating smaller portions of food) before if you ate a full plate of food try eating 2/3 of a plate instead.


o Substitute aspartame for sugar

o Try eating 3 or 4 smaller meals during the day rather than 2 large ones

o Eat your main large meal at midday with the other meals much smaller in content

o Don't eat heavy meals late in the evening as the body wont have time to digest it so it ends up stored as fat in your body.

o Balance your meals out during the day so in one day you have a mix of protein, carbohydrate and vitamins

o Drink lots of water during the day and before, during and after exercise, you should drink at least 8 big glasses of water per 24 hours

o Drink alcohol in moderation

o Stop smoking if you smoke or cut down

o Eat more fibre i.e. pulses grains nuts, pasta, brown rice, cereals, fresh fruit

o Eat more vegetables as part of your diet

o Eat less dairy products or choose those with less fat content i.e. cottage cheese

o Try steaming or poaching food instead of frying it, frying adds calories by the bucketful

o Cut down on Red meat and eat more lean or better still chicken and fish instead

o Use low fat oils in cooking i.e. sunflower, corn or Mazola

o Cut down on your salt intake, there are hidden salts even in tinned foods

o Try substituting carrots or fresh fruit instead of biscuits and sweetmeat when you have a craving for something in between meals.

o Drink semi or skimmed milk as opposed to full cream

Simply choose a diet which is low in fat and cholesterol, moderate in sugar and salt and high in fibre but at the same time has a variety of everything thus making it a balanced diet.

1)cut down on fats and sweets (not totally but reduce about 50% of what fats and sweets you eat now and replace them with fruits and veggies.

2) chose an exercise which you think is fun and practice it everyday for half an hour or more.

3) avoid at all costs any type of sodas, cokes ects but drink mostly water.

don't expect anything to happen overnight

eating right, making healty choices, making sure you have a balanced diet, and a healty amout of exercise are great but take into account your body style and your family's body style

for exercise all you need is 30mins a day 3days a week

don't over work your self this can have an adverse effect.

Losing 25 pounds in 3 months is a terrible idea. The most I would recommend for you to lose in 3 months time is 15.

- Workout 3 times a week with weights.

This doesn't mean a sissy workout using 5 pound dumbells. I'm talking bench press, squats, and deadlifts.

- Eat 1g protein / lb lean body mass.

Your diet needs to be full of protein, low glycemic complex carbs, and healthy fats.

- Reduce calories to lose 1-2 lbs / week.

You should not lose more than probably 1.5 pounds a week.

- Drink a gallon of water a day

Plain and simple.

- Get 8 hours of sleep a night

Even simpler.

Honestly, its not hard, depending on how overweight you are. The first 20lbs should be easy to lose if you are heavy...

Last march I weighed 200lbs and worked out religiously, using my elliptical for at least an hour a day, at least 5 days a week, at level20, lifting weights, and going for an occassional jog. By june I weighed 160lbs!

I drank TONS of water, at leat 8 glasses a day, and my meals consisted of mostly salads and grilled chicken with brown rice or steamed veggies. No fast food or soda obviously...Just keep your calorie intake low, but not too low, and work out daily.

Im still working on the rest of my weight, even though Ive been lazy, but it works!

Trust me, if I could do it, can do it!

Good luck!!
