I have quite a bit of weight to lose (100+) and am just getting started.
While I know the basics of how to eat right, Iâ€™m wondering whether itâ€™s better to include fat free and low fat versions of foods or to just eat less of the full fat versions?
I know the fat free includes more sugar and thatâ€™s something Iâ€™m trying to avoid
Can you offer any advice?
Hey Heather. How are you? I know this is quite confusing for many people with so many nutritionists, dieticians, trainers and coaches giving different advice. It really is hard to More >
I read an article about the rise of Veganism within the celebrity community and how many dieticians are saying that itâ€™s not simply a fad. Weâ€™ve seen actors like Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway and even Brad Pitt come out and for various reasons adopt this style of eating. Amongst the benefits, itâ€™s stated that in general Vegans have lower BMIâ€™s and generally will weigh less, which is true…
But I think we need a little clarity.
The main issue I have is with the BMI scale. As you can see from the photo below, I am considered obese with a BMI More >
I turned to a vegetarian lifestyle 5 years ago for medical reasons. I lost over 50 pounds and dramatically improved my health markers.
I also started a workout plan of weights and cardio around the same time (doctor prescribed) and Iâ€™ve seen results but Iâ€™m not where I want to be.
Do you think that I can reach my goals of being â€˜lean and meanâ€™ eating a Vegetarian diet? Iâ€™d even settle for toned up at this point. Iâ€™m strong but Iâ€™m still â€˜softâ€™ and canâ€™t seem to lose more weight?
Any ideas? Suggestion?

Iâ€™m 25 pounds overweight and Iâ€™m going to finally try to lose it. In the past Iâ€™ve tried every diet â€“ Zone, South Beach, Atkins and I did fairly well on Weight Watchers.
My question is about calories and whether or not I should count them? I find it really difficult to track my calories or count â€˜pointsâ€™ and it makes me obsess over what Iâ€™ve eaten or am going to eat. And so far I havenâ€™t been successful at keeping the weight off.
I read your Ask The Experts with Heather Frey and she says she doesnâ€™t count calories but just More >
I am 5’6″ and weight 195 lbs. I have lost 25 lbs. since January of this year following a regime of cardio and resistance training 5 to 6 days a week. I also try really hard to stay away from white breads, rice, etc – except for one cheat day a week.
For the last two months Iâ€™ve added one banana, my favorite fruit, to my protein shake and have not lost any weight since then. Currently I am consuming 1,800 calories a day.
I have heard conflicting stories regarding bananas. So are bananas good or bad and should I include More >
For the past 3 weeks I have been undertaking a body transformation from a well known website. I am 186cm tall (6’1) and 104.7kg (230 lbs) I am aiming to get down to 80kg (176lbs).
I have been consuming 1,800 calories a day and doing weights 5 times a week whilst also performing cardio for 40 minutes a day at a steady pace.
I have seen no results and my body fat percentage has stayed at 29% the entire time. Can you please tell me what is happening?
I was consuming 2,200 calories a day for two weeks prior to this and More >
I’m a 21-year old woman and now Iâ€™m staying at home without doing anything. Here’s my problem â€“recently I finished my studies and started gaining weight. Before this I was around 133 lbs., which was a bit better than now (144 lbs.). Iâ€™m 5 feet 3 inch and slightly overweight according to my BMI calculation.
I already did some workouts to get over this but it seems my biggest problem is my belly fat. I really need to get rid of it. I have already cut out carbohydrates from my meal because I read that carbs are the main cause More >
First, I would like to say I really enjoy your site! I have found a lot of great information here.
My question is in regards to â€˜starvation modeâ€™. I am 30 years old and considered obese. I have changed my diet and have been working out for the last three months and so far have lost 25 pounds. I have another 75 I would like to lose.
I perform a combination of strength and cardio exercises. I have recently increased the amount of time working out and being active during the day and my weight loss has seemingly stopped. And More >
