Question by Tree: Is weight loss exponential following the initial few weeks of an exercise regimen?
I am into my 4th week of a rigorous exercise program. So far, I haven’t noticed much weight loss. Will it accelerate once I build up some muscles, say by the 6th week? And then afterwards, does it plateau?

thats tricky. if your eating a regular balanced diet and only excercise, you might convert instead of loose. fat feeds muscles when their worked out, hence muscles get bigger, weighing more. i would try measuring your self, your waist thighs arms ect to get a better idea. i go sick of the lack of results from just the excercise program so i hopped onto the extreme dieting banwagon and lost it all, very quickly, very sickly. If i where you, i would slightly reduce my fat intake, increase vegges and tough it out. youll be a lot healthier that way. Dont let yourself get upset, that what i did and it messed me right up *Have an eating disorder now*. try eating most of your meals with negative/low calorie foods such as:

apples
apricots
artichokes
asparagus
beets
blackberries
blueberries
brocoli
brussel sprouts
buffalo fish
cabbage
cantaloupe
carrots
cauliflower
celeraic
celery
cherries
chervil
chicory
Chinese cabbage
chives
clams
cod
corn
crabs
cranberries
cucumbers
currants
damson
dandelion
eggplant
endive
flounder
frog legs
garlic
grapefruit
grapes
green beans
honeydew melon
huckleberries
kale
kiwi
kohlrabi
kumquats
leeks
lemons
lettuce
limes
lobster
loganberries
mangoes
mushrooms
muskmelons
mussels
mustard greens
nectarine
okra
onions
orange
oysters
papaya
parley leaves
parsnips
peach

pear
peas
peppers
pineapple
plum
pomegranates
prunes
pumpkin
quince
radishes
raspberries
red cabbage
rhubarb
rutabagas
salsify
sauerkraut
scallions
sea bass
shrimp
sorrel
spinach
squash
strawberries
string beans
tangerine
terrapin
tomato
turnips
watercress
watermelon
zucchini

and then have 1 regular modest meal to get the other nutrients you need. you wont feel starved as you can eat as much of the free foods as you like, and you wont feel deprived as you can eat anything in your 1 regular meal a day. DONT use dressings on the veggies, or becareful which ones you do use, thay are full of calories and are teribbly fattening. same goes for butter. you can use either if you need to, just in MODERATION. you’ll be happy, healthy, and loosing weight on your excercise program ,with this change in eating habits.
