I am 18 yrs old girl and weigh 220lbs at 5'10. I want to start a diet and nned to know how much weight i will lose. I would like to lose 15lbs in 3 weeks. I am eating under 500 calories a day. I eat campbells chicken with noodles soup at hand twice a day which is 80 calories each time, 1 cup of sugar free jello which is 10 calories, fat free Pringles (30 chips) which is 140 calories and occasionally a granola bar which is 120 calories. I drink water (0 calories) and diet soda (0 calories). I take one centrum vitamin every day. I go to the gym and walk on the treadmill with the incline on 15 at the rate of 3.5 miles per hour and burn 1000 calories. Also I exert a lot of energy walking around campus. It is a very hilly campus. I have a slow metabolism. Can you tell me how much weight I will lose by doing this in a little over 3 weeks?
also can you tell me about the green tea pill? will it work? how much wieght will be lost in a given amount of time? is it dangerous?
Answered your other question first and my answer is the same!! Don't waste your money on pills such as the green tea pill for weight loss. What you need to do is learn how to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet that is safe and effective for weight loss. A registered dietitian can help you do that. You have a slow metabolism because you are NOT EATING ENOUGH!!! You are slowing it down more by not fueling your body properly. Either see your doctor or go to www.eatright.org to find a dietitian in your area.
