Eating healthy is a life style and you will benefit huge just from that but yes, you should be doing some type of cardiovascular workout to burn those unwanted calories and stubborn fat.
Yes but I do recommend you check with your family physician before entering any type of eating or exercise programs.
No, your body accumulates fat cells as you continue to eat lots of bad fats and they do not go away but may shrink a bit as you lose weight. This is why you need to stick to a healthy eating plan and stay away from all the bad fats (hence) trans fats, saturated fats.
Trying to boost your metabolism probably won’t lead to weight loss, at least not to the degree that changing your diet and lifestyle habits will. How much you weigh really depends on the number of calories you eat and how much physical activity you get.
Not necessarily. A vegetarian diet is not a weight-loss diet but rather a lifestyle choice. You might follow a vegetarian diet for cultural, religious or ethical reasons, or because eliminating or reducing meat, poultry, seafood and other animal products may help you become healthier.
A vegetarian diet can range from strictly prohibiting any animal products (veganism) to eating some animal products, such as eggs and dairy (ovo-lacto vegetarianism). Research shows that adults and children who follow a vegetarian diet are generally leaner than nonvegetarians. This may be because a vegetarian diet typically includes less saturated fat and emphasizes more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and plant-based proteins — foods that are more filling and less calorie dense.
But a vegetarian diet isn’t automatically low calorie. You can gain weight on a vegetarian diet if your portion sizes are too big or if you eat too many high-calorie foods, such as sweetened beverages, snack foods and desserts. Even some foods marketed, as vegetarian can be high in calories and fat, such as soy hot dogs, soy cheese, refried beans and snack bars. This is why it’s possible to be overweight while following a vegetarian diet.
It depends on the type of coffee you drink. A plain cup of brewed coffee has only two calories (and no fat). But if you dress up your coffee with extras, whether at home or your favorite coffee shop, you also add on extra calories.
See how many unwanted calories that 1 tablespoon of these extras can add to your coffee:
* Heavy whipping cream. 52 calories
* Table sugar. 49 calories
* Half-and-half. 20 calories
* Fat-free milk. 5 calories
So if you’re dieting or watching your weight, carefully read product labels as you consider how to flavor your coffee.
When you’re buying brew from your local coffee shop, it’s especially easy to go overboard on calories (and fat and sugar). Before ordering, check out the nutrition information provided by the coffee shop, either in person or online. Some coffee drinks are more like dessert and can have hundreds of calories. Occasional indulgence is fine. But remember that when it comes to weight loss, all calories count — even calories in liquid form.
When you’re dieting, it’s important to be mindful of what and how much you’re drinking. Although milk and juice have many important nutrients and can be part of a healthy diet, they still have calories — and calories in liquid form count just as much as calories in food.
So when you’re counting calories, the best beverage choice is water. Keep higher calorie beverages in check. As a general rule, adults should drink no more than 4 ounces (118 milliliters) of juice a day and 16 to 24 ounces (473 to 710 milliliters) of milk a day. If water isn’t filling enough when you’re dieting, snack on fresh fruit and vegetables between meals. Whole fruits and vegetables are much more filling than juice — and it’s likely you’ll consume fewer calories with these choices.
