You should venture to the nutrition forums and set up a account at fitday.com as well. Nutrition as well as your training will play important roles in losing weight the right way(fat not muscle). However, a very fast loss of fat will come with muscle as well but that can be limited by a number of factors.
You need to look at your BMR and activity rating to get an estimate of your calorie expendature at rest and then you can see where you need to go from there.

You shouldn't really lose more than 1-2lbs per week.
If you've had a lot of trouble with dieting you should either spend a ton of time reading on nutrition, training, meal timing, etc. If you have some extra $$$$ you should sign up with Bobo, the owner of this board. Go to the FLA nutrition forum to read more and see some info about his plans. I know he isn't taking anyone now, but maybe you can get on the waiting list. Take what you learn from the plan and you should be able to diet cleanly and effectively from now on. Easily worth the money.

how long should i workout perday i usually do a hour and i eat about1400 cal per day
07-14-2006, 08:41 PM
too few cals most likely and it depends on what you do in that hour.
07-14-2006, 08:53 PM
i power walk i try to run but it feels like i am going to pass the hell out
07-14-2006, 08:55 PM
Not enough calories which means you're more than likely burning muscle over fat. Still shows a weight loss but you're not losing the right kind.
07-14-2006, 08:56 PM
how many cal should i eat i want a beyonce not a serena williams i want it soft and sexy not superbuff and hard
07-14-2006, 08:59 PM
07-14-2006, 09:38 PM
we cant help determine the cals you will need without your stats first (height, weight, etc.)
also some weight training coupled with cardio would really work well in your goal to achieve fat loss.

how do i put my pic on here ? do i need that gold membership?
07-14-2006, 10:00 PM
Click on User CP, then go down the left column to Edit Avatar. It is pretty self-explanatory once you get there. The only pain is resizing your pic so it fits.
Keep in mind that Serena William's physique is probably due to genetics, and possibly performance enhancers. It would take an incredible amount of time and meticulous training and diet (a bulking diet) to work toward those proportions. Weight lifting should be at least 50% of your workout time. YOU WILL NOT GET HUGE! Those super-muscular women take steroids. It is difficult for women to build a lot of muscle.
07-14-2006, 10:07 PM
i cant add my pic do not use avatar is all ready selected what else can i do?
07-14-2006, 10:09 PM
i think she wants to just post a pic in the thread
just go to post reply and hit insert image and post the url of the picture (if it is being web hosted)
or just go to manage attatchments on the bottom and attach a picture from your computer.
you coudl also just post stats up like height weight if you cant post a picture.
I would also think it would be helpful if you post what your current diet may look like. I know your asking for help on this but it sounds like your monitoring what you eat (you mentioned 1600 cals a day) and this could help us see where your at and we can critique and add to it and eventually help with training
07-14-2006, 10:17 PM
It seems we have another person who has never used a board before.
Please before asking for help, post up your diet, training, and pictures, then we will help you. We really hate giving out all this info and then people split with no further regard to the ones that helped them for hours at a time.
07-14-2006, 10:33 PM
i tryed to add my pics but it useless "oh" and dont worry i wont abandon yall like that your help is truly appreciated trust by the way nice bod

i wanted to get vitamin b 12 complex injections and i was searching the web and came across ths site and i would like to be toned out and lean i could lift to be tone my body weight percentage was 36 at 135 with is unhealthy now it is 40 ihave a scale that measures body fat

B-12 injections are not going to help you lose weight. You may feel better only if you are lacking in B complex vitamins. It not a magic injection. Nothing like that is sold on this website.
Please for your health seek medical professional help. We are not doctors here and I hate for you to end up with a medical condition that could of been treated.
07-14-2006, 11:29 PM
thanks for your concern i have seen my doctor and i have had my blood checked i am not looking for a magic spell to help me lose weight i am going to lose regardless i just wanted some advice if you dont want to give me any its cool

Those bf% scales are BS. I've gotten readings ranging from 9-16% within a few hours. Don't take that as accurate. I emailed the company about it, and they wouldn't explain the range, simply deferring to "the equations"...Originally Posted by FitnFirm
Have it checked at your gym, or maybe you can find a dunk tank at a local university.
If you have 40%bf at around 135lbs you must be 4 feet tall. I bet it isn't nearly as bad as you think.
07-15-2006, 10:53 PM
diet, cardio and consistency. Take a multi vitamin and get more clean calories more often in your day. 4x meals a day. Protein after workout is really important too. I like glutomine and cod liver oil and glucosomine so you can keep going to the gym with less down time, but that's for later if you really need it. And drink as much water as you can and you'll lose some quick pounds with that too.

I believe she said she was 135 and w/i a year went up to 195lbs.Originally Posted by Beowulf
First I would see a doc and get cleared to exercise. Second start slow, and have patience. You didn't put the weight on overnight and it's not going to come off overnight. If you are eating junk food now (ie fast food, candy, soda) remove one item per week from your diet. If you're drinking soda start by replacing it w/ water. Depending on how much soda you are drinking you could see a major difference by dropping it. The main thing is to work towards cleaning up your diet. If you try to do it all at once you are more likely to fail. If you gradually work into it your cravings should not be as high and the adjustment to healthy living will not come as such a shock to your system.
Read as much as you can, search this site, and then ask questions.

Hi! I am new myself and I am sure many people here will help you out as they seem very knowledgeable about body shaping subjects.Originally Posted by 1hotblackchick
I just thought I reply as I am simular to you in my situation.
my first and only post to date is here
the reason I post it is so you can see why I am saying while I am not a nutrition expert I have started to take some suppliments that seem to work for me in losing weight but more importantly body shape.
the first is 7-keto DHEA
NSI 7-Keto -- 50 mg - 120 Capsules - Vitacost
I think that I am responding to it a little diffrent because I may have a non-normal body chemistry but I can say after one week I have lost 3 pounds and they have studies that show 10 pounds lost in 3 weeks with muscle being spared.
I think B12 is a good thing but shots suck and dealing with medical people scuks more. I like this B12 as it is sub-lingual and thus bypasses teh stomic and you get better absorbtion equal to a shot.
VITAMIN B12 Sublingual B-12, B6, Folic Acid and Biotin Vegetarian Formula
it also balences by having B-6 and folic acid which is better than B-12 on its own. I also do not have alot of money to spend so you can see this is cheap
I am also not a fan of BF% readers on the internet but the best one I found is here.
Home Body Fat Test
I like it as it seems more accurate but that is because they ask you more questions but surprise surprise with more data you get more accurate measurement
Now like I saud I am a newbe and not even a real bodybuilder but I do alot of research and I take my time to find stuff I think will work and I would never mention something to others that I am not currently taking myself.
I suggest you research for yourself the stuff I mentioned so you can see if any or all of the things I mentioned will help you out.

Losing that much weight is going to take time and perseverence.
If you want to crash diet, then put it all back on, this is not the place for you. However if you want to change your lifestyle forever, then we can help.
Give us a sample of your daily diet, and excercise routines, if you don't want to eat like most of us do on here, thats OK, we can advise you on the healthier options. Don't deprive yourself too much, that can make it easy to just give up and put it all back on. Don't try to lose it all too quickly, set long term goals.
We need more info to help you - but if you are willing to put the hard work in then so are we.
07-18-2006, 11:07 PM

hello buds today i got on the scale and i weigh 189 it only the third day i hope i not setting my self up for failure as i stated before i lose 10 pounds in a week 2 or 3 the next and none for 3 weeks or more am i eating enough i dont want to lose no more than 5 pound a week help !!!!!!!
07-19-2006, 01:09 PM
Well, If you have not done it already, i would say go on to fitday.com and set up you daily diet to calculate your totals, in ref to bmr, and rmr. In addition, do not belive all this natural mumbo jumbo about cranberries, and applecider vinegar, as I have hundreds of black women coming to my store asking for that crap like it works. Its good for Uti's and insulin regulation, but thats about it the only way to eliminate cellulite is to lose fat.
As for your workouts keep it up. Cardio in the morning, plus weight training later is key. Worry not about Serena Williams as you will not be training that hard. Good luck
07-19-2006, 01:58 PM
Remember, a lot of the initial weight loss is usually water loss, so don't obsess with the scales.
Take body measurements, waist, butt, thighs etc and see if they are changing even if the scales are not.
I have lost a couple of inches on my body, but my weight has actually increased.
If I was going by the scales alone I would have quit already.

Ur doing good, make sure your getting a good multi vitamin everyday 2. cardio is your best bet to get into shape, I made incredible gains in the two weeks I started running 5 miles just 2 days a week and 1-2 miles 3 days a week. And imagin food as a fire, you want to keep it going all day with 4 different times to add wood to keep a good decent fire, instead of 2x big times where the fire almost goes out a couple times. Metabolism control is important. Start looking at the glycemic index too, very helpful in what to eat and when.
07-21-2006, 09:09 AM
thanks for the info but i dont know anything about glycemic index help!!!!!Originally Posted by Kam

this is the skinny, (High Gly)some foods digest quick and raise insalin(wrong spelling) and give u a suger rush like banana, but if you eat low gly like a green apple or another thing like peanuts it takes your body a good amount of time to break it down and feed u the nutrients over a period of hours instead of short term energy.
Keep asking questions, and reading this site it took me about 3 months to get down the basics, now i'm building, it's harder to practice then it is to preach.
07-21-2006, 12:53 PM
well it won't let me get rid of this one, so I'll post something else that is helpful.......
Oh yeah today at the gym, i got caught up in a good show (the contender) i'm sort of a fighting buff while on the treadmill and i got 3 miles in when it only felt like 1.
and an mp3 player during lifting is always helpful keeps u motivated, I like ampd preworkout it's a caffeine c0cktail that helps u zone in while at the gym, gives u that little extra. Same as coffee which i don't drink, and i rarely drink soda so it does the job.
hope this helps as i try to fill in my double post.:bruce3:
