    You are a good swimmer. If you swim in a cold pool, you won’t lose weight per se. Swimming is not a weight bearing exercise. The body, in a cold pool, will want fat to keep itself warm. You will bulk up on your upper body, as shoulders and upper back. You will look trimmer, but the number on the scale will not change. Eating healthfully is a good habit for a longer life, so says some research. That it is a proven fact, is not yet established. I think these are laudable goals. I think running and stair climbing will bring you where you want to be. Also, eat enough protein to build muscles. Don’t deprive your body of nutrients. So, maybe, do one or the other. How I know about swimming is that I swam each day a mile in a cold pool, laps, before picking up my child at day care. When I started to look like a hulk, I realized what was making me walk like Frankenstein’s Monster Creation. So, if there is a gym there, use the gym for toning the muscles and the stair master for aerobics. Easier on the hair and skin as well; although, cold pools do not have much chlorine to speak of. But it does get aggravating when others want to fight it out in the lanes with kicks and complaints about crossing the lines.

    If you want to lose weight, you need to two things: eat less and exercise more. Weight gain happens when you create a calorie surplus (eat more than you burn). Your body takes the excess calories and converts them to fat which get stored around your stomach, arms and thighs. The longer you remain in a calorie surplus, the more weight you’ll gain. To lose that weight, you need to do the opposite. You need to create a calorie deficit (start eating less than you burn).

    Your first step is to figure out how many calories you burn on a daily basis. Use a calorie calculator – The number you get from this tool is what your body burns on a daily basis. To lose weight, simply eat less. It sounds a lot easier than it is but making small changes helps you adjust to a new lifestyle. Don’t think of this as a diet, think of it as a new life. Instead of eating foods high in sugars, white flour and saturated fat, go with fruits, vegetables, whole wheats, fish, lean meats, nuts and beans. In addition to eating less, you also need to exercise more. Start off at 1-2 times per week and work your way up to 3-5 times per week.

    Don’t make all of these changes at once or you won’t be able to properly adjust to them. Generally, eating healthier foods will decrease your calorie intake. Compare a doughnut to an apple and you’ll see that healthy foods are lower in calories. You can find some more information at the Straight Health Forums –
