Hi I'm Alex (f), 22, 154 lb (height 5.3) and I'd really need to get back to my usual 125 but I'm having some problems that may be caused by a slow metabolism (I was on medication for the last 2 years, 2 mg Xanax everyday - I'm off it since this year).
What I've done is basically try one of those SlimFast diets but didn't work, I admit I didn't (and I still don't) eat breakfast but I'd drink one of those SlimFast shakes at 12 then a big green salat with some light cheese (if) at dinner.
I've tried a juice/fasting diet so end up losing 3 lb by just drinking fruit juice (without sugar) for 3 weeks but I couldn't go on with it, I had days where I obviously felt really like really weak.
I've been doing Pilates with some aerobic routins too but I just feel really weak after a few minutes doing them. Atm I have no job so I'm pretty much at home, I do own an exercise bike that I'm not using for now.
My question is or better are:
1. Is there a (good) way to increase methabolism?
2. What would you do to lose those 30 lb?
Any advice is hightly appreciated!
Thank you, sorry about my english!
