param , dumbells, barbells, body weight, use anything you can stick to. kettlebells are handy because they are easy to pick up

Abick, a combination of high intensity interval training, and weight lifting, followed by abdominal exersises works. programs like p 90x or insanity. If you don't have time to wait you tube has many free videos, or exersise t.v. Walking, running, pilates, yoga, kickboxing. On the diet side eliminate sugar if you can, replace at least on red meat meal with a vegetarian meal.

Kanu, we try to encouage you to reach your goal, I love exersise and health related matters, my advice is free
01-09-2012 09:40
thanks a lot .........
01-09-2012 09:42
wanna loose 10 kj please advice me hw its possible in a month plz:)
01-09-2012 13:21
Dear Kanu, You need to do 2 hours of cardio a day, 30 minutes weight lifting, 30 minutes stretching, eat no proccesed sugar.
Still I must caution you 10 lbs in a month is hard. Keep in mind you do not have to do it all at one. You could do 2 1 hour cardio segments, 1 hour run, 1 hour plyometrics, 4 hours apart.
Remember the key to long lasting weight loss is on avoiding proccesed sugar.
01-09-2012 13:31
plz also guide me about diet thanks :)
01-09-2012 18:43
Dear Kanu, You should eat 1 gram protien per pound of body weight, do not exceed 30 grams per meal, I like optimum nutrition soy protien, because I am a vegan, but if you are a meat eater try to eat 3 ounces at a time, egg whites you can eat up to 5 at a time, chicken you can eat 4 ounces, fish 6 ounces, broccoli, beans, beets, carrots, oatmeal, chickpeas, apples bannanas, brown rice, wheat pasta. When you make a plate of food try to eat 1/4 cup portion of startch, like rice pasta, potatoe, sweet are best. double portion vegetable, then your protien portion. Great desert idea, avacado mixed with bannana. great pankake recipe, 1 scoop protien powder mixed with 1/4 cup oatmeal, mix with water, cook in little olive oil, top with sliced strawberries, blueberries, or bannana.

m vegetarian :)

Kanu, cut out as much dairy, and all bread for the entire month that should help., white beans, kidney beans, cinnomon, tofu, almond milk, those are good food choices. green tea, is great for keeping weight off, supplements, green coffee, muti vitamin, b-12, flax seed oil, vitamin d, if you get sore take vitamin e, calcium, sun warrior pea protien is good, if you use whey protien try to by lactose free.

Hello everyone, I want to loss 30 kg, currently my weight is 119 kg, I have problems of thyroid, triglycerides and cholesterol. Any tip? Thanks

Throw all fat food and bring in vegtebales and chicken instead ( dont buy red meat) and start walking untill you feel your heart beat faster 2 times or 3 a week.
Try to walk fast at sometimes and it will work. Dont eat at night and if u cant then make sure its only a salad. And lastly - stay away from bread !!! U can eat one or two slices of full wheat bread but ONLY in the morning. Good luck!

Don't rush getting used to new ways of living. Take your time getting used to it.

I think you should not change your eating habits in the beginning too much. Just eat a little bit healthier, a little bit less and move a little bit more. I tried to change my eating habits to more healthy stuff but it was not working for me. I usually gained the weight i lost very quickly again.
Find an activity you like and do it as often as you can(walking, cycling, running, etc). Go out more often, get more, do not use the car when you can walk, use the stairs instead of escalators, etc

Track your weight regularly! Seeing a graph that shows how much weight you lost is very motivating.

Don't eat diet stuff or low fat products!

Try drink more water.

Hi, before start diet foods u should change your lifestyle put weekly achievements to yourself. If you havent started exercises yet, start with the minimum levels but put on it every week. Also for food for ex last week I quit cola from my life and this week bread, next week I will lower some unuseful things from my life. My advice for you is go step by step but dont quit!

Hi all. I'm just joining here.
I used to work at a company with an on site gym so working out was easy with the equipment and trainer and gym accessible.
I have since left that company and I would like to maintain my workout regime. Unfortunately I am unable to join another gym at present and so understand that my regular approach has to be modified with no equipment etc.
I look forward to learning at home tips from this group in conjunction with the plan produced by Virtuagym.
Isn't technlogy amazing now that we can do all this from mobile devices. But I digress.

I started using this app about two months ago and the results are good, I used to think myself a guru in bodyweight exercise until I started using this app, suffice to say it made me feel like a boy scout. I currently weigh 96kg and my goal is to be at 86kg in the next 5 months, watch this space. Oh for home equipment I have a pair of kettlebells, 12kg each, an exercise ball, a skip rope, a yoga mat and 96kg of bodyweight (for now).

I do have 4kgs of overweight, I am doing weights 4 days a week and one day in between on treadmill, I am torn of whether I should do the fat burn zone and just burn fat or the cardio zone and burn more calories but not necessarily fat but muscles instead.
3 months ago
You have to be careful with your cardio. That's everything. The intensity of your cardio shouldn't be too high, 'cause that's when you burn muscels instead of fat. Try cardio training with a low intensity, but longer duration. That should do it.

I prefer burst training for a short period of time it shreds the fat and your muscles should be safe as it's short burst, why do a long hike when you can accomplish the same result in 5 minutes... Try this out I hope it helps 4 Minutes of HELL! - Evil (but good) Fat Burning …: http://youtu.be/NqvooBJ8FY8
