    You should run for half hour per day on treadmill machine, the speed should be varied each day. And avoid any food that contains fat. Avoid junk and oily foods too

    I think you should also try herbal tea, a good antioxidant and it will also accelerate your metabolism but beware of some herbal diet tea products. Always use the natural ones.

    @trupti, Maybe these 3 extra kilos are not extra fat anymore, you might have just convert them into muscles that now gives you a lovely silhouette. Then there is nothing to try to lose any longer. :D

    I have thyroid problem and because of this problem I gain 10 kg wait. Now i want to reduce my weight but I can't do tough exercises. Can anyone suggest me some easy tips?
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @Nisha-raj123 we are also exploring the same. :)
    What I think is weight gain and weight loss varies from person to person. I am a lean person but whenever I put on some weight I start drinking green tea using different desi herbs and I lose it within a month but it might not be helpful for others. So, depends upon the reasons and then solutions accordingly. Simple solution is start a daily walk and eat balanced diet.

    Where are you @Hermine? Maybe you have some useful tips. My only way of losing weight is eating smaller quantities and taking more exercise. But it always seems to be a losing battle.

    @Marianne, this time I am trying out a different one and I´m wondering if I can hold it.
  • MonikMonik Posts: 1,001 ✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge I have same problem.. I must to start my routine as soon as possible because I've been spending too much time in front of the computer and I left behind my daily workout.. BTW, I'm not the kind of person who can eat whatever I want.. I have to shut my mouth. :(
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 7,971 mod
    @monik, there are just a few out who can allow themselves to eat everything they want without gaining weight. I am sure the majority has to keep an eye on the scales.
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @Hermine you must be smart because you are into sports like hiking, swimming, cycling that keep you fit and slim, right?
  • MonikMonik Posts: 1,001 ✭✭✭✭
    @Hermine you are right... But why me!!! LOL :)
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 7,971 mod
    @monik, haha.

    Diets don't work. Lifestyle choices do. Concentrate on being fit, healthy, and happy. Can you walk up a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing. Can you run for the bus without risking a heart attack?
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @Lynne I agree with you. But, being happy is the key. If we try to remain happy, we will remain healthy. Over-weight is also due to taking too much tensions that disturb the hormonal system, eating habits, life styles etc. I think it is about concentrating on the positive aspect of life that brings all this to you.

    @bubbli and @Lynne, I think you mean to strenghten the immune system.

    Live happily and glad like the mouse in oat straw.

    Live happily and be glad like a mouse in oat straw! This sums it up very nicely @Hermine.

    @Marianne, this is an old, very old Austrian rhyme.
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,659 ✭✭✭✭
    As snug as a bug in a rug @Hermine. That's me right now.
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 7,971 mod
    @Marianne, nice.
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @Hermine I mean to see the positive side of life and your immune system will be strengthen automatically.
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 7,971 mod
    @bubbli, yes you are right.
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,659 ✭✭✭✭
    I don't believe in being ill, so maybe this is why I'm almost never poorly.
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,875 mod
    I always thought that people could gain weight because they have a good life!
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge lucky one! so your body defense mechanism is much stronger than germs around. :)

    Interesting topic! Well, I always have an issue with my weigh and dietery things, until recently I started exercising heavily. I do all kind of exercise.(spinning,Zumba, body attack,apps and LBT) However, there's one thing that I can not stop. TEA with MILK is my biggest struggle. I chronically drink tea.

    Any advice? :)

    you have to ask a nutritionist to see the amount of calorie you burn each day so he would tell you the sort of food that u should eat , and you should not be exercising too heavly cause this would effect your muscles all u have to do is to do some activities and walking, dancing, running but don't stress yourself doing it. just do it when it seems fine to you
