I think about you've to eat rice or bread is not difference.

Foods consisting of carbohydrate can be slowly/hard to metabolism on body==
If the metabolism more slowly, it's mean absorbing the compounds will increase in your body.
Some foods like Rice, bread, mealt are consist of carbohydrate.

My advice about weight loss that you will start for low-carb eating.
And doing exercise everyday.Fitness or going for swim ..
The important point that you need to eat right and workout
Simple :wink:
not easy :?:
but' i think you can do it :mrgreen: .
Fighting !!!!

Physical exercise is bodily activity that develops or maintains physical fitness and overall health. It is often practiced to strengthen muscles and the cardiovascular system, and to hone athletic skills. Frequent and regular physical exercise boosts the immune system, and helps prevent diseases of affluence such as heart disease, cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and obesity It also improves mental health and helps prevent depression.

Exercises are generally grouped into three types depending on the overall effect they have on the human body:

Flexibility exercises such as stretching improve the range of motion of muscles and joints.
Aerobic exercises such as cycling, walking, running, hiking, and playing tennis focus on increasing cardiovascular endurance.
Anaerobic exercises such as weight training, functional training or sprinting increase short-term muscle strength.

yes, physical exercise is very important for health, especially aerobics exercise is very good, once you stop to exercise, you will not rebound on your weight, each time you complete a exercise, you can fell some comfortable on your body and have a good mood in life. during my off hours, i will play badmintoon in an indoor court. after insisting on a month exercise, i become stronger than i was. and have better taste and better mood. i suggest all of you try to exercise, do not worry about wasting your time. just drawing several hour each week for exercises. finnally, you can find much improvement on your body, and even change your life gradually.

when you eat meals,you should eat vegetables at the first time. this is good way to lose weight.

it may be as well not to have too much dinner.

Hi.... this is such a normal fact... I must tell you..
You have to think about the change your body is supporting... I live in Costa Rica, Central America and 6 yars ago I went to Korea because of the Soccer World Cup...this was a problem for me because there was a lot of food I didn´t even have seen in my all life.. When I began to eat all this stuff my body changed, I gained 15 kgs in a 22 days trip...just incredible!!!

To lose that extra weight I began to eat 5 times by day but with smaller portions, and for sure, I also started with an excercise program ( not so hard but trying to get in motion at least during 60 minutes 4 times a week ).
Try with this ....

Loosing weight is not difficult.If you walk daily 10 km without eating any thing your weight will be loosed up 3kg in one month.

You see, dear, sometimes it's a big dilemma when you can't buy clothes larger than S-size... And day-light in fitting-rooms make you think all the worse about yourself :evil:
I came across an XXS-sized T-shirt, I thought I was in child's department, because healthy adult women simply can't be that skinny... :roll:

Too skinny is like too fat : too bad for your health.

I prefer you to be healthy than you to be obsessed by your appearance.

Shops in your city offer only skinny clothes ??? :!!: :shock: Revolucíon !!! :lol:

True. Sometime it's really hard to get fitting clothes these days. I'm not overweight. I'm just 171.5 cm tall and something 73 to 74 kg weight. I think It's still in range, but it's still hard to find fitting and comfortable clothes. All because of some fashion designers weird obsessions.

The worst I have got across is when the pants designer have had wrong idea about the correct size of testicles and made pants too tight from that area.. I guess in such case there's only 2 options. not to wear pants or.. second option is the one about losing weight in a way that I even don't to think about.

I think the Italians might be the worst clothes makers.. all that not needed style and fashion.

All clothes shops are fashion victims or business victims ?

If yes, two only keys :

1. Make yourself your clothes.
2. Live with naturists and nudists. :lol:

Well, yes I sometime suffer in communication deficiency and then I lose the modesty. Starting to talk by my own and get too excited of it. :oops: {-:

Hi all

I would like give some easy and fast weight loose ideas

• Make water your favorite drink. A person must have a minimum of 8 glasses of water in a day. Avoid taking soft drinks or carbonated beverages; moreover replace them with water. Water helps in reducing weight in the most effective manner.

• Don't stuff yourself with food in a single sitting; instead have 5 to 6 small meals or snacks in a day. Eating several small meals helps the body to release less insulin, which keeps blood sugar steady and helps to control hunger.


• Make a habit of walking. Instead of driving car to the nearby market, prefer walking down. Walking is more important for people in sedentary jobs. Walk for at least 45 minutes every day; it helps in burning extra calories.

Hi Ireen,

I'm Emerson, from brazil. I'm a personal trainer here so I have some tips to u.

The first one is: We have a calories balance called basal metabolism rate. this is the quatity of energy your body needs per day. When u eat more than that rate you become fatter. So is important you to do a negative balance, eat less than your body spends. But, the best way to do that is to eat nice nutrition food and pratice aerobics exercises.

The second one: Look for a personal trainer or fitness intructor in dublin to make u a body composition analys. Therefore u will know about your B.M.R. (basal metabolism rate) and He/she will conduct you to the best way to lose this extra weight.

The third one: Try to choose the physical activity that you enjoy doing. This is the best activity to lose weight.
