Q. How much weight can I safely lose in a week?
Before you embark on any fitness or weight loss program, consult your physician to rule out any underlying issues. The simplest way to explain losing weight is you have to burn more calories than you consume. That said, many factors influence your goal of tipping the scale. How much cardiovascular exercise do you do? How many meals do you eat per day? And more importantly, how many calories do you eat? How much do you weigh currently? Do you eat mostly plant sources, complex carbohydrates, protein (meat, dairy products) or fats? If you do exercise and eat right, a realistic and healthy weight loss is 1-2 lbs per week of fat. A weight loss of around 6-8 lbs of fat per month by combined exercise and nutrition is around 1.5 -2 inches around the abdominal area and 1-1.5 inches off in the hip area.
Q. How many calories should I eat in an average day?
In our super-size everything culture, the average canadian consumes far more calories then the recommended 2000 calorie diet. Most of these fat-laden calories are empty sources such as chips, pop, and processed foods. Nearly every food on the market, from milk to chocolate, has a healthful, tasty substitute. Gone are the days of bad tasting rabbit food! The vast array of substitutions include low-fat, no-fat, sugar-free, and low-calorie versions. And, the new food labeling requirements make finding these products a snap.
Daily modifications of your diet can be simple, using lower fat and lower calorie foods and beverages, as well as changing cooking methods. It’s as easy as exchanging 1 percent milk for 2 percent milk in your breakfast cereal, drinking a diet soda in place of a sugared soda at lunch, or enjoying steamed or boiled vegetables instead of fried or creamed vegetables at dinner. These simple substitutions help bring meals in line with Health Canada guidelines.

Q. How long will it take for me to see results?
If you are fully committed to your fitness plan and don’t hang out in buffets every other afternoon you’ll see progress within one week.

Depending on how far have to go and to what level you would like to get also plays a roll. Obviously if you want to lose 100 pounds, 4-8 will bring significant progress, but it may still take much longer to reach your ultimate goal.
