Excercise can speed up weight loss a lot. Get a set of weights and do 15 minutes a day of weight lifting and body building esp important for women . You will lose 300 calories a day on top or nearly 2000 a week ie 100,000 a year or nearly 30 pounds of fat a year just by doing that !
For example if you want to lose 20 pounds (10 kilos) you need to lose 20x3500 or 70,000 calories in all. So your 100 calories a day diet might look like this:
January 2 Breakfast - never skip this , it gets the furnace going ! 2 boiled eggs 160 calories 2 toast lightly buttered 160 Coffee with no sugar under 50 cals 0 ....... Total so far 320 Lunch Chicken salad 280 ......... Total 600 Mid afternoon Apple under 50 cals so not counted 0 Evening meal Lamb Casserole 400 Bed time snack Biscuit + Milk 1 cup 100 ......... Total intake for the day 1100 One mile -2km fast walk minus 100 .......... Net Intake 1000 Subtract from the 2000 needed Net loss for the day 2000-1000 = 1000 calories NEVER skip the excercise otherwise your metabolism will slow down and when you stop dieting you will put on all the weight and more !More to follow if requested
From 6 months IRON is important in your baby's diet and the baby gets most of its iron from solid food. There is not enough in milk.
Iron improves a baby's appetitie and helps it fight off infection.Drinking only milk can prevent your baby getting enough iron for its needs.
Toddlers can have a bottle of milk in the morning and before going to bed but do NOT give it milk at night when he wakes up ! It just becomes a habit and he will not eat properly in the day.
Milk and rice have too little iron . Cereal in the morning with a Vitamin C drink is a good source of iron as is meat.If your child eats vegetables , pulses , fruits , meat , eggs and cereals and even if its only small amounts he will be having a healthy diet.
Sweets , crisps ,fizzy drinks , biscuits should be avoided or kept for a treat after meals.Avoid underfeeding the baby . Its healthier for a baby to be a little bit overweight.
