    I would probably go around that much to lose it, yes. But also eat the right things too. Switching simple little things like White Bread to Wheat Bread can make a big difference! Also making sure you get 30-60 minutes of exercise every other day can help as well!!

    1500 sounds like a good amount for you. I am also 5’6, and i used to weigh 160, and i ate 1400 to lose weight and it was effective.

    I wouldn’t cut it below 1500. You only want to lose 1-2 pounds per week to be healthy while you do it. To loose a pound you need to burn 3500 calories more than you intake, so check out how many you are burning in your normal activities (as you lose weight you will burn less calories doing the same activities), is one site I found that is good for this. I would recommend increasing your exercise, portion control and balanced diet, eating every 3-4 hours and all of that, but 1500 sounds good.

    I have found a great blog with a story of a woman who lost weight in a healthy and easy way. It was an eye-opener for me. I’ve tried it and I must admit that the results amazed me. I lost more than 30 pounds so far and I feel better than ever.

    So, what is this diet about? Well, it teaches you how to stay healthy while losing weight. It is so easy when you know how to do it, and in a long run it shows much better results, because after other diets I’ve tried before you just get that fat back. The thing is, you have to eat a few times a day, not starve. Because when you are not eating, your body stores fat and it is much harder to lose weight. When you eat, and you know what and when and how, your body will know that there is food around so it won’t store fat – it will burn it!

    Here are some hints from Betty’s blog:

    1.The diet creates meal plans and recipes just for you.
    2.You are able to eat a few times a day, which means that you are not starving yourself!
    3.The diet is based upon calorie shifting and shows you what you are doing wrong. Betty Winter on her site explains it all.
    4.What is most important, you are able to buy all the food in a local store. There is no need for some expensive fancy food that promises miracles, but does nothing at all.
    5.It teaches you how to lose bad eating habits.

    As I told you, this diet was an eye-opener and it works. With the proper guidance all the way through the diet, it is so easy and you can do it too. It can all be found online, as Betty describes.

    Betty also gives FREE gifts to anyone who visit her site these days so be shure to check it out!

    So, if you wish to learn more about this easy healthy diet, check Betty’s blog, it’s in my source. Good luck!

    Excess weight or obesity is by far the number one health concern in this country.
    Sixty percent of Americans are either overweight or obese, including over 20 percent of teenagers.
    All are at risk for serious physical and emotional health problems.

    Hi there,

    I think you might be getting a little mixed up with what you want exactly. You say that you want to lose “weight” but that means you might want to get rid of some muscle too. You then say that you’d like to “shape” (I’d call it tone) your body a little which implies you want to build some muscle. I’m not trying to pick at your question – I just want to clarify the point for you.

    To answer it in the best way, I am going to look at it as if you want to get rid of fat AND build muscle at the same time. If you’re looking to “trim” and “tone” your body, and espectially because you suggest you are not that overweight, I would suggest you start performing more intensive aerobic exercises such as jogging. I wouldn’t think you need to change the whole way you eat or go on a diet because if you’re wanting to build muscles – it’s better to do it all with exercise.

    Exercises like jogging won’t exactly “build” your muscles on your stomach but they will help reduce the extra fat around there. Depending on how fit you are, you should go on daily or bi-daily jogs of around a mile. To build muscles, you should concentrate on anaerobic exercises such as sit-ups to help build muscles.

    These muscle-building exercises will give your muscles the toning and training they need to grow and become more prominent. To start to see a real difference with sit-ups, you should be looking to do no more than 100 every day (more than that will often hurt your muscles).

    If you stick to doing those two forms of exercise – jogging and sit-ups, you should see real improvements in a week or two. Remember, you should do them as often as you can (I.E every single day).

    No matter how you slice it, diet is a dirty word. It smacks of deprivation and hunger pangs. To overcome the pain, you need a plan.

    1. Know Your Weight Loss Goals

    2. Understand Your Weight Loss Personality

    Finally, be sure you’re committed to losing weight for yourself — not because someone else is pressuring you to do so.

    Then, take things slowly, keep these tips in mind, and you should be on the road to weight loss in no time.
