The Question:

I have a scenario for you . please help. if I walk on an incline treadmill every other day for thirty minutes completing a mile and a half; and if i drink three liters of water a day; and if i stay away from fast food and keep eating nothing but baked chicken veggies, soup, and crackers, how much weight should i be guestimated to lose and what kind of toning will occur?

The Answer:

You can generally hope for a weight loss of around 1% of your total bodyweight every week. So, if you weigh 200 pounds you could expect to lose about 2 pounds (1%) of weight per week. Most people will start to visually notice a difference in their body when they have lost at least 5% of their total bodyweight. At two percent per week this would take 2.5 to 3 weeks to start seeing physical changes. Try to be patient and learn how to exercise and eat healthy. Remember, it won't do you any good if you starve yourself and frantically exercise to lose weight if you don't learn how to keep it off in the long run. Think about this, it probably took you at least a few years to gain the weight and get out of shape. Give yourself at least a few months to take it off! Make a long-term lifestyle change and you will be much happier and healthier with what you can accomplish.
